SONG OFTHE CICADA
Ominous-Sounding Drone Is
Heard in the Woods.
NO DAMAGE TO BE FEARED
Will Always Be Known as Loeastt,
Although Scientists Declare They
An Called Oat of Their If ante.
??B-o-o-o-o!" (fortissimo).
Hear the drone of the serenteen-year
locusts?
No, you don't. Like the mythical Mrs
Harris, "there's ao sich a person." What
the untutored masses sllude to sa seven
teen-year loeusts sre really the periodi
cal cicada. A Star reporter, who wrote
this was fresh from a conference with
the authorities of the Department of Ag
riculture. and he knew. However, they
probably will continue to be called
locusts In spite of this enlightenment.
There never were any buffaloes in Amer
ica. but the Bison Society never has been
able to get the public to call them any
thing but buffaloes- So the cicada prob
ably will go on singing but unsung
under that particular name.
Well, the "locust^" have come. They
are filling the woods on the Virginia side
of the river with their ominous-sounding
drone, and they probably will keep it up
for a few weeks. The country people,
especially the negroes. In the rsglon of
the particular brood near eat the District
are interested in various degrees to the
point of being alarmed. It Is rumored
that the visitation, if it does pot fore
tell national calamity, will at least result
In decimating the crops and ruining the
orchards.
#
Harmless Insects.
Happily,- this is not the esse. The lo
cust, whether ha Is the regular
*Mtaat who calls "heat-heat-heat" or
the periodical red and black brood that
Bits the air with a weird moan. Is about
aa harmless a little specimen as the la
**ct world produces. They have
mouths, and they cannot eat anything.
It is true they can stick their long beaks
into a tree aj?d drink a Uttle, and tbey
deposit thw eggs In young twigs that
are often broken off afterward by tbe
wind. But this amounts to no more than
? '"tie twig waning, aud it ? seldofa
that they are ckJe enough te a very
young orchard to do serious
The chief feature that has smBHHHH
studied with Interest by entomologists Is
the!? very loaf period of development.
There la nowhere else In the Insect or
Mlmtl world a creature that takes such
a lon? period to develop.
Two Distinct Broods.
There are two distinct broods of the
locusts?the thirteen-year brood and
the seventeen-year brood. The seven
teen-year ones, that we are having now
ground Washington, affect principally
the Atlantic seaboard, reaching from
Albany, N. Y., to North Carolina. Then
the thirteen-year brood centers in the
south, covering principally Louisiana
and up the Mississippi valley to Ken
tucky. Outside the area that is cov
ered by eaeh of these great broods
there are scsttered broods whose period
ef development may be a year longer
or a year sherter, and there are scat
tered broods in other parts of the
country reaehlag as far north and
west as Denver. Thus there are com
paratively few seasons when there is
not a brood somewhere in the country.
But the period of reourrenoe has been
studied csrefully enough back to colo
nial times to be sure of th? period of
development.
So harmless are the "locusts" consid
ered that many years back there waa a
brood "planted" artificially In the
grounds of the Department of Agricul
ture. They came out on schedule time
at the end of seventeen years, and as
near as could be estimated there were
about 20,000 of them. But not one ever
reached the elnglng stage. The birds
attended to that. Just as they are at
tending to all the brooda that era com
ing out this .year. Even the govern- |
ment sparrow, that outcaat of the bird
world, wno Is never credited with any
thing good, llkee a lunch of periodical
cicada. But the crew-blackbird, less
well knpwn as the purple grackle, Is
the one that Uvea high while the sev
enteen-year locusts last. Wnat he ean
do to a. woodland full ef the periodical
la better seen than tsld. But the rob
ins, the wrens and the bluebirds and
all the other feathered folk also live
well en ihs brood.
The officials of the bureau of en to-,
mology In the Department of Agricul
ture are interested In the appearance
of the seldom-recurring brood, but say
there is no damage to he feared.

SAYS ARCHITECTS HAVE TRUST
House Committee Hears of Existence
of a Priee Agreement.
According to Supervising Architect Tay
lor of the Treasury Department, who ap
peared before the House committee on
expenditures in the Treasury Department
i yesterday afternoon, the American Instl
; tute of Architects has a price agreement
in force on competitive building bids. The
federal government, Mr. Taylor said, is
often affeoted by this alleged architects'
trust.
This association, of which Irving K.
Pond of Chicago is president and Glenn
Brown of Washington secretary, Mr
Taylor said, has a steadfast rule that no
member may bid below 6 per cent of the
total cost of a building for furnishing
plans therefor, members violating being
subject to fine and expulsion from the as
sociation. The rule, he said, is enforced
chiefly on government, municipal, state
and large private buildings, when com
petitive bids are asked.
Replying to the committee's inaulrv
Mr. Taylor said the cost of the private'
elevator Secretary MacVeagh has erected
ip the Treasury building for his personal
! ose was 16,175.
A Rose Entertainment,
A "rose entertainnutot" is to be given

Aldermen to Act on Amend
ments to New License Law.
CLOSE DEAL FOR CURRENT
Arlington Electric Company to Sup
ply Light to Several
Suburban Towns.
Special Correspondence of Tie St nr.
ALEXANDRIA. Va., June 1. 19J1.
A special meeting of the board of alder,
men will be held tonight at 8 o'clock for
the purpose of acting on the amendments
to the new license law. This board has
already passed the law as recommended
by the finance committee of city coun
cil. The lower branch of city council,
at a meeting a few nights ago, amended
the law, principally among the amend
ments being a reduction of the license
to wholesale liquor dealers and shippers
from $225 to $1?5. It is believed that the
aldermen will lock horns with the com
mon council on this proposition and that
they may non-concur in the action of
council and return the license bill to
that body, mlnas any amendments, and
make it read the same as it originally
did when it was adopted, as recommend
ed by the finance committee.
Should this be done it is hardly
thought that another meeting of the
council will bo called to act on the
matter until the next regular meeting
of that body. Which will be June 13
next. In the meantime the city will be
without a licence law, inasmuch as the
law cannot become operative until
pasSed by both branches, although the
new license is supposed to have gone
into effect today.
?The Alexandria Electric Company re
cently closed out a contract with the
Arlington Electric Company for sup
plying electric current to the latter
company, which will be distributed to
the towns of Falls Church, B^llston,
Cherrydale and other sections of the
upper part of Alexandria county west
of Fort Myer.
Work is now under construction on
these lines, and it is expected that the
Arlington Electric Company will be
ready to deliver current in Clarendon
about the first of August, and in the
other towns in the early fall.
The Alexandria Electric Company
has recently placed a contract for ad
ditional machinery for the power plant,
which will be installed this summer.
Refused to Pay Car Fare.
Tendering union labor cards in lieu of |
their fare to Conductor Joseph Nowland
on the 8:45 o'clock train out of Wash
ington last night resulted In John Frank
lin and Albert Williams being arraigned
In the police court this morning and

conduct on the fars.
Conductor Nowland testified that the
prisoners and two other men, whom he
did not know, got aboard his train at
Addison Heights and when he called
for their fare they declined to pay and
said they had ui^lon cards. He said he
refused to pass them and informed them
they would have to get off. The men,
he testified, became abusive, and two got
off at a nearby station when the train
was stopped. He attempted to eject
one, while one o? the quartet pulled him
off his train by the leg and another
struck him with: what he thought was
an umbrella. JSowiand succeeded. in
holding two prisoners, while two got
away. One said this morning that all
were drunk, whUe the other did not re
| member anything.
Franklin later admitted his name is
John Franklin L&ndrum. He is an um
brella mender from Washington. De
tective Burlingame of Washington saw
the prisoner this afternoon and asked
him for an explanation of his possession
of four planes, two pairs of tinner's
snips and other tools.
Landrum said lie had purchased the
tools from a man near the south end of
the Highway bridge for 60 cents. The
tools were turned over to the detective
and taken to Washington to be identified.
William T. Paul, mate on a schooner. I
was arraigned in the police court this
morning to answer a charge of cutting
With a knife Cap?. B. W. Brambell of the
schooner B. P. Beswlck. It was testified
that a fight ensu?d when the captain ac
cused the mate of selling a hawser and
discharged him, ordering him ashore. The
cut was In the lot^er part of the abdo
man. The court fined Paul $10.
Other cases disposed of follow: James
Nelson^ John BosWell and Susie Clark,

fach and the woman acquitted; William

the building as It will look when
completed.
