WASHINGTON, D. C. F. G. REISINGER, SUCCESSOR TO B. ROSENFELD, (CONFECTIONER and ^ Maker of Quality Ice Cream All sorts of Fani-y Oakp*. Strawberry Ie? Cream made from frt-sh fruit, per gallon, <1.20. 812 H St.N.E. sarv BLOCKS AN INQUIRY Charge Made in Court Against J. Barton Miller. TESTIMONY OF WITNESSES Former Official of Co-Operative Building Association Accused of Preventing Audit of Accounts. That J. Barton Miller, former secre tary-treasurer of the First Co-opera tive Building Association of George town. now on trial before Justice Wright and a jury in Criminal Court, Xo. 1, on charges of embezzlement and destruction of the books of the asso ciation, announced the company's as sets to be 9212,000 and strenuously op posed an independent audit of his books at the stockholders' meeting In June, 1908, was the purport of the tes timony given today by Henry G. "Wag ner. former president of the associa tion. Miller's reason, he said, was that the audit would entail unneces sary expense. As the meeting broke up and the par ticipants were leaving the hall, Wagner mid. he heard Miller say, "They can kiss their dollars good-by." Albert B. Jackson, another former pres ident of the association, in his testimony said that Miller, while opposing one of the men proposed as auditor, referring to his statement showing the company's ex cellent financial condition said: "I and the finance committee have gone over these figures upward, downward, cross ways and bias and they are absolutely accurate." Witness Enters Denial. On cross-examination of Mr. Jackson Attorney Henry E. Davi3 questioned the witness as to whether or not he had kept In the safe private papers belonging to the estate of a Mr. King, a former treas urer; whether he knew the combination of the safe and had in the presence of Donald Miller, a brother of the accused, and Miss Krumke, clerk of Miller-Shoe maker Realty Company, worked the com bination and opened the safe of the asso ciation. Mr. Jackson stoutly denied that he had known the combination or ever attempted to open the safe. Mr. Jackson stated that Miller alone, to his knowledge, knew the combination of the safe. George Freeman, George J. Fritch and Joseph H. Lee detailed to the jury the happenings of the annual meeting of stockholders just prior to the failure of the association. Mr. Miller, they testified, had a great deal to say at the meeting, opposed the appointment of an auditing committee, and assured the stockholders there was no necessity, as had been suggested, for the appointment of a receiver. Miller as serted. the witnesses said, that the com pany was absolutely solvent, and that it would be a prodigal waste of vthe com pany's funds to appoint an auditing com mittee. The treasurer said the cost would be ?VQOO, and if a receiver were appointed Miller suggested, it would be a long time before the stockholders could ever hope to get any of their money. Advocated Gradual Process. Mi!>r advocated, it was testified, a gradual winding up of tne business. Joseph H. Lee. a member of the finance committee, explained the report of that committee. He said the report had been prepared by Miller and the committee ?went over the footings and compared them with the books of the association. He said the only portions of the report written by the committee was the clause at the end complimenting Miller's serv ices. Consul Burrill Here. Edmond A. Burrill of this city, formerly employed in the State Department, who has been vice anJ deputy consul of the United States at St. Ktienne. France, since 11*>7. following several years' service in the consulate of Puerto Cabello. Vene s'leia. is now in Washington on leave of absence.

DON'T USE DRUGS FOR CONSTIPATION lust Try Nature's Cure We all know that constipation brings on countless other complaints if not taken in hand, appendicitis among them?also that any drug will lose its power after being taken for a time?but we should also know that every drug forces nature instead of assisting her. and will, if continued, make us slaves to them. There is now a method of Internal Bathing which will keep the intes tines as clean and pure and free from waste.as exacting nature can demand ?which, taken occasionally, will pre vent constipation, biliousness with its depression and the countless more serious diseases which are caused by the blood taking up the poisons from the intestines and carrying them through the system. That method is the "J. B. L. Cas cade," which is being enthusiastically used by many thousands, is pre scribed by the most enlightened phy sicians everywhere and is now being shown and explained by Affleck'* Drug Store, 15th and F streets north west. Every one should at least investi gate this nature-cure without delay. PROBLEM TOSOLVE Questions Affecting District Policy Arousing Interest. DISCUSSED BY FEDERATION Association of Citizens Considers Representation in Congress. SOME DIVISION IK SENTIMENT Debate of Commissioners' Declara tion That They Do Not Always Follow Public Sentiment. Officials of the Federation of Citizens' Associations today are endeavoring to map out a plan of action which shall be their answer to the District Commission ers, who. in a communication sent the federation Saturday, declared that they do net conceive It to be their duty to act on all official matters In accordance with the views of the majority of the taxpay ers of the District. Suggestions ranging from the plan that Congress be asked to compel the Com missioners to publish the full text of every bill introduced relating to the Dis trict to the proposal that a movement be Inaugurated to have the District repre sented on the floor of the House have been pouring In upon the federation. Out of th^s mass of communications which are coming In from members of many of the associations, the federation, at a special meeting to be held within a few davs, will in all probability outline a policy for which it will endeavor to gain recognition as representing the views and wishes of the majority of the residents of the District. Arouses Great Interest. The communication of the Commission ers has attracted the attention of the federation as no'other matter has that has come before that body since it* or ganization. The statement was the re sult of a request made of the Commis sioners by the federation that all bills introduced in Congress relating to the District be published In full, and that a date be set for a hearing on each. In turning down the request and in stating that they do not consider that it is their duty to act for the majority of the taxpayers of the District In reporting on legislation the Commissioners, it is declared by officials of the federation, have made clear that they do not act as the mouthpiece of the citizens of the District. . . If this is the case, a number of tne federation heads maintain, the time is at hand when the District should have a representative of its own to whom Con gress can turn when it desires to know the wishes of the majority of the resi dents of the District with respect to any particular piece of legislation. For this reason, they uge that the District should have a representative on the floor 01 me douse The method to be suggested for the selection of such a representative al ready gives indication of proving a stumbling block. Whether the repre sentative should be elected or appoint ed by the President is a question that has been raised. Proposition to Organize. President Clayton of the federation today said that the proposition to or ganize a movement to secure a repre sentative in Congress probably would be presented by Roy C. Claflln. repre senting the Park View Citizens' As sociation. Several members of the federation are endeavored to have Mr. Claflin sound opinion as to the plan among the mem bers of all of the associations before formally bringing it to the attention of the central body. Mr. Claflin, It is understood, has consented to do this. President Clayton expressed himself as being in favor of the plan, provided the representative^ should be appointed by the President. ' He said he did not believe the question of suffrage should be agitated in the District at this time. _ , . The first step thrft the federation, in all probability, will take will be to consider the introduction of a Joint resolution in Congress to compel the Commissioners to publish all bills af fecting the District, and to set a date for a hearing on each. If this plan should be adopted It is probable that the question of secur ing a representative will not be pressed at the present time, although this will depend upon the result of Mr. Claflin's canvass. Decline to Comment. The Commissioners today would make no comments upon their reply sent to the federation. Their position Is fully explained in the communication, they stated. It is understood the attitude of the Commissioners is based upon the grounds that they not only represent the citizens of the District, but all the citizens of the United States and that, for that reason, they might not be able in every instance to consider that the wishes of the majority of the taxpay ers of the District would be compati ble with the best interests of the Dis trict. TO TOUB UNITED STATES. Turksh Importers Desire to Meet American Manufacturers. According to a report Just received by the Department of State from Con sul Horton. at Saloniki. a party of im portant importers from that city are leaving for an extended tour of the United States, for the purpose of meet ing personally American manufactur ers and exporters interested In trade in the near east. The consul reports that the party Is bringing with it samples of goods which now find a ready market in Turkey, and that these will be sub mitted to American boards of trade, manufacturers, exporters, etc. Officials of the State Department who are familiar with trade conditions in the near east assert confidently that large orders for American firms should be secured as the result of the visit of this delegation. While it has long been the custom ; for business men in Turkey to visit ; European houses and manufacturers, it is the first time that- such a visit | has been made to the United Staea, and the present instance is credited with j being a result of the active efforts made by this government to secure for its manufacturers a greater share In j the large important trade with Turkey.

Unless more money Is subscribed imme diately to the fund for the safe and sane celebration of July Fourth, tlfe various subcommittees, especially the fireworks committee, will be unable to make the proper contracts for the public celebration of the day. Only $5,000 is asked for by the Joint committee on the safe and sane Fourth, but only $1,088.50 has been re ceived. The finance committee sent out a vigor ous appeal for money this morning. The committee members say that they must have subscriptions now. The fireworks contract and other contractu have to be arranged for this week, and unless the committee knows how much money it is to have to spend there will be no surety as to what sort of a celebration the city will have. The members of the committee be lieve that there is a misunderstanding about the time wnen the money is needed. The public seems to feel that the money is not needed until July 4, according to the circular sent out to day; but the committee knows the money is needed now. The circular calls attention to the (act that the old-time Fourth of July kept ambu lances and hospital surgeons busy all day, and that last year on July 4 not a single call on the fire department and hospitals was made. Copy of Letter. The following letter was sent out to day to the members of the Chamber of Commerce and the Board of Trade: "Under date of the 2d instant, the chairman of this committee addressed you soliciting a subscription for the safr and sane celebration of Independence day. I presume the communication was overlooked by you. as I am sure it is your tntention to contrlbqte along with the other members of the Board of Trade and the Chamber of Commerce. "This safe and sane celebration la a movement growing directly out of the joint committee action of the two asso ciations, and the committee Intrusted with securing the necessary fund must depend upon the members of the two or ganizations for the greater part of the money necessary. "We must know In the next few days whether or not the fund of $5,000 asked for can be raised. You will materially assist the committee if you will advise me properly of your disposition In the matter. I hope to receive a substant'al subscription at your earliest conven ience."

NEW TREATY WITH SWEDEN THE TOPIC IN GERMANY Ratification Is Urged by the Preu as Being Better Than a Tariff War. Foreign CorrPBpondencp of The Star. BERLIN. May 25, 1911. The new commercial treaty with Swe den is still the subject of eager discus sion in the German newspapers. The Swedes have compelled the German, by means of the threat that otherwise heavy duties would be levied on German manu factured articles in Sweden, to admit their granite paving stones duty free and to keep the duty on wooden doors, win dow frames, staircases, etc., manufac tured in Sweden down to $1 per double hundredweight. Although Germany has obtained some concessions, the duties lev ied by Sweden on various goods imported from Germany have been considerably raised. Among the most important Ger man export articles thus penalized are hops, leather gloves, paper goods, ready made clothes, cutlery, agricultural ma chinery, garden utensils, articles made of copper, *inc and tin, machinery, bicycles, lead pencils, pianos, phonographs, clocks and toys. The Germans have prevailed on the Swedes to refrain as heretofore, from placing an export duty on iron ore, which Is so much needed by German man ufacturers. though the Germans are in clined to believe that the Swedes threat ened the imposition of this export duty only in order to obtain further conces sions from them. The Kolnische Zeitung says that the owners of German quarries are rightly indignant over the admission of Swedish granite paving stones duty free, but that Germany was compelled to concede this point out of consideration for other, more important industries. The newspapers point out that if, for example, Sweden had imposed an export duty on iron ore German skippers alone would have lost $3,000,000 annually, as the export of this article is in their hands. The reichstag cannot alter or amend the treaty In any way; It can only con firm or refuse to confirm It. The news papers recommend the reichstag to ac cept the treaty, on the grounds that an unsatisfactory treaty is better than a tar iff war and that at the end of a tariff war Germany might be in a worse posi tion than now. The Magdeburger Beitung publishes a letter from Stockholm in which it is stated that an agitation is be ing conducted with much enthusiasm in Sweden against the introduction of for eign goods. "Swedish weeks" are being held in all the important towns, and the population is being urged to realize that it is a national duty to purchase prod ucts of the Swedish industries in prefer ence to those imported from abroad. MASKED MEN KILL SEVEN IN VILLA OF RICH MAN Bodies Found With Split Skulls. Everything of Value Bemoved From House. Foreign Correspondence of The Star. BERLIN. May 23, 1911. A seven-fold murder is reported by a Silesian paper from the Russian village of Soroki. It had struck the inhabitants of the place that nothing had been seen of the inmates of the villa of a vealthy man named Schastok. and the neighbors, suspecting that all was not right, broke open the door. In the entrance hall they found a man servant, bound and wounded, while in the ro.ims were the corpses of the' owner and hip wife, two women who were staying in the house as guests and three maids, all with split skulls. The apartments were bespattered with bloofi and every thing of value had been removed. The man servant related that in the night four masked men had broken into the house and made the'r way into the bed rooms of the women, whom they at once butchered with axes, with the exception of Schastok's wife While they were engaged in this car nage Schastok himself appeared, but was immediately felled with a couple of hatchet blows. His wife was then as saulted by two of the murderers and also slaughtered in the same manner. After plundering the house the miscreants were about to make off when they noticed the man servant, who had been hiding be hind a partition. They bound him hand and foot and gave him a blow on the head which rendered him unconscious. They then decamped. WOMEN ON THE BENCH. Paris May Soon See Them in Scarlet Robes Edged With Ermine.
