But Commissioners Have Not
Decided Just What Points
Will Be Relighted.
Some of the lamps on the suburban
roads affected by the recent "tights out"
order will be restored. Although the
Commissioners have not decided definitely
at what points the roads will be relight
ed. they believe that some of the lone
some places should not be left entirely
None of the Commissioners will say
anything about the restoration of lights?
that Is, they will not talk for publication.
However, when the complete figures of
wsgons, bicycles, carriages, automobiles
and pedestrians are presented to the
board of Commissioners for their final
action, there will be a modification of
the order which put out .H7 suburban
Cost of Lighting. ?
' Th* Commissioners received this morn
ing the figures showing what the light
ing of the District amounted to last year.
In a comprehensive set of figures Walter
C. Allen, electrical engineer, shows ex
actly what every lamp cost, where It Is
and what kind it is.
Prmi/ient in the report is the detailing
of the refusal of the Washington Termi
nal Company and the Philadelphia, Bal
timore and Washington Railroad Com
pany to pay for the lighting of streets
through which their rights of way pass.
Report on the Subject.
The report says of this situation that
the result has been "that the money
heretofore received from these companies
and repaid to the appropriation for street
lighting has not been available. The
lamps along these rights of way are
therefore being maintained at the ex
pense of the District until the suits which
have been instituted to recover the cost
from these companies are decided.
"This action on the part of these rail
road companies has tied up fft.6SO yearly
in the appropriation for street lighting
and H.330 in the appropriation for arc
Praises "Lights Out" Order.
Praise for the "lights out" order of the
Commissioners came from the lips of Dr.
B. D. Thompson, president of the North
Capitol and Bcklngton Citizens' Associa
tion. this morning. Dr. Thompson ap
peared at tha board session to tell the
Commissioners tlmt he thought they had
done a good thing in takinir away 'M~
lights from the outlying suburban roads:
"As a resident and taxpayer," he said.
"I think the Commissioners have done a
wise thing in having the lights taken
from our country roads and put in the
city. At the meeting last week it seemed
to be felt that your predecessors were
rlKht and that you had erred.
"I think It is the other way. One road
in particular I have traveled at all hours
of the day and night, and some of the
roads are very sparsely traversed. The
statistics of Bunker Hill road now would
be unfair, for the Bladenslrurg road has
been shut up and travel has had to come
over the Runker Hill road. Wait until
the Rladensburg road Is opened, and It
mill get the travel. There are other roads
from which lights should be taken.
"Bunker Hill road is a side street. Peo
ple from the country use the Bladensburg
road It Is shorter. The same applies
to Queen's Chapel road and other roads
out northeast, and a majority of the ex
ecutive committee of my citizens' asso
ciation Is with me on this proposition.
We think you have done a wise thing In
bringing the lights into the city."

Association Officers Return
and Begin Preparations
for 1911 Pilgrimage.
Francis J. Kilkenny, president of the
Irish Home-going Association, accom
panied by Joseph Sullivan, secretary of
the association, returned to Washington
last night from their tour of Ireland to
make preparations for the home-going In
1011. They predict that a lancer number
of Irishmen will take the opportunity to
visit their old homes next year than dur
ing the home-going celebration of ll?10,
when 20,000 took the trip.
"The response to the call for the home
going surpassed all expectations this
year," said Mr. Kilkenny.
"Never before this year have Americans
visited Ireland In such great numbers.
We were informed that the official
figures showed that about ltt,<WO landed
at Queenatown alone from ports In the
United States, and many thousands more
landed at other places In Ireland. We
were much gratified at the splendid re
sponse of the Irish Americans to the
?call of home.' Everywhere we went in
Ireland we found the people as a whole
enthusiastic over the home-coming and
thorouKhly In sympathy with Its alms and
objects. At every opportunity we took
occasion to tell the people the Importance i
of taking Immediate steps to arrange a
program for next year's home-coming, |
and to secure concessions in rates from
the steamship and railroad companies so
that those contemplating a holiday next
summer would know In advance all about
rates for travel, and have a schedule
of the important celebrations arranged
for them. We have succeeded In arous
ing world-wide Interest in the Irish home
going movement, and through the co
operation of the Irish Americans and
Americans we have made the Initial
home-going a success and It now re
mains for the people of Ireland to fos
ter and encourage the Idea for all tljne."
Met Lord Mayor of Dublin.
Mr. Kilkenny and Mr. Sullivan were
presented to the lord mayor of Dublin,
Michael Doyle, by a delegation of promi
nent business men of Dublin. The lord
mayor expressed himself as thoroughly
in sympathy with the Irish home-going
movement, and promised that he would
do all In his power to co-operate In mak
ing It successful next year. He com
mented upon the unprecedented number
of Irish Americans In Ireland this sum
mer. and the many of them who had
called upon him each day at the Mansion
House, and was emphatic in stating that
the Irish Americans and Americans who
visited them were the best class of people
coming to Ireland. He agreed that an
organized effort should be made through
out Ireland to arrange a fitting progrom
for the entertainment of the Irish
Americans and their friends who will
visit the Emerald Isle next summer.
Before Mr. Kilkenny and Mr. Sullivan
left Ireland arrangements had been made
to hold a public meeting of the leading
business men of the city of Dublin at
the Mansion House, at which the lord
mayor offered to preside. At this meet
ing consideration will be given to the
holding of a home-coming week in Dub
lin next summer.

Rev. J. Henning Helms Preaches in
the Church of the Ascension.
A wireless message sent from mid-1
ocean to the congregation of the parish
of the Ascension over a week ago by
the rector. Rev. J. Hcnnfng Nelms, and
read to that congregation September
4, was the subject the rector took for
his morning discourse yesterday. It
came over 1,500 miles of ocean, and
comprised the following words from the
Scriptures: "For I long to see you, that
I may Impart unto you some spiritual
gifts to the end that ye may be estab
lished*; that is. that 1 may be com
forted together with you by the mutual
faith, both of you and me."
At the close of the service the great
er part of the congregation remained
to greet the rector and Mrs. Nelms.
