In one of the keenest competitions in
local newspaper circles in years. The
Stars dispatch car. a fifty-horsepower
Virginian automobile, yesterday scored a
victory over the other Washington news
papers by landing its papers at Camp

Washington, where the National Guard
of the District of Columbia is encamped.

of The Star, who acted as road scout:

Bide Through the Night.
Speeding out Massachusetts avenue, the
route led out Connecticut avenue to Brad
ley lane, to the Tenleytown road, which
was followed northward to Rockville.
There was nothing to disturb the silent
night air but the sound of the exhaust
from the muffler as the car sped over the
road. The nisht was dark and the at
mosphere chilly, but the members of the
party were prepared for the night dash
through the open country.
As the "Virginian" neared Rockville the
speed was reduced, and. notwithstanding
the fact that Sheriff Viett of Rockville
and his deputies were quietly slumbering,
the speed laws were observed during the
passage through town, in order not to
take advantage of the officers of peace in
their absence. Neither was the muffler
"cut-out" kept open while passing through
the towns en route to disturb the peace
ful sleeping country folks. On and on
the car continued its journey, passing
through Gaithersburg. which was- reached
in fast time over the new macadam road
which is being constructed from Rock
ville. Clarksburg was the next town pass- j
ed en route and later the descent made
into Hyattstown, followed by a rough and ?
ste^p ascent on the opposite side of the
place. The big 50-horsepower car found
no difficulty in negotiating the steep hills,
which faded away one after another in
quick succession. Quietly joggling through
?T'rbana the route continued over the
Monocaey river, the party crossing J -o
bridge a fe-w minutes before the town
clock in Frederick struck -4:.*t0. The worst
of the road had now been passed over

other machines could get in the pae? had
to be sent down to the gate. It was
some time before "reveille" when The

Star distributers from getting to work
and covering the camp.
The members of the party were the

So complete was the defeat that the sev
eral hundred copies of The Sunday Star
had been completely sold out and were
being eagerly read by the guardsmen
when the first of the other newspaper au
tomobiles pulled into camp.
As fast as The Star presses clicked off
the papers yesterday morning they were
tied up in bundles and placed in the
waiting automobile. With all aboard
&nd amid a rousing cheer and wishes of
good luck, the Virginian at 2:16 o'clock

Justify District in Doing
Its Own Work.
The plan of the District to clean its
own streets, which has been in operation
less than two months, was officially pro
nounced a success today by Capt. Mark
Brooke, assistant engineer commissioner.
The plan went Into effect July 1. Capt.
Brooke said thut the thoroughfares of

been in years, and that this condition has
been brought about at a reduced cost.
According to the assistant engineer
commissioner, the District already is sav

it is said upon high authority that the
Commissioners will consider enlarging
the plan so that the District will collect
its own garbage, ashes and miscellaneous
refuse, rather than provide for this work
by the contract system.
Supt. J. W. Paxton of the street clean
ing department is out of the city, but it
is expected th,^t he will submit his an
nual report to the Commissioners shortly
after his return, probably next month.
It is believed that Mr. Paxton will recom

Just how much the District is saving
by cleaning its own streets has not been
figured out, but the amount, it is said,

Out of an appropriation of $260,000 Tor
the street cleaning department, practi
cally $40,000 has been spent for equip

Capt. Brooite today said that several
horses died during the hot weather in
July, but that, notwithstanding the handi
cap of this loss, the amount saved to the
District has exceeded expectations.

Required to Act.
Municipal Architect Snowden Ashford
will not be called upon to prepare plans
for the additional building and heating !
plant of the Reform School for Girls, as j
the result of a decision by Controller of '
the Treasury Tracewell.
Mr. Tracewell, in a lengthy communica- j
tion to the District Commissioners, made ;
public today, holds that the Reform
School for Girls is United States goverg- !
ment property, and that, therefore, any |
plans for additions to the school are not i
required to be prepared by or under the j
supervision of the municipal architect.
The question is the outgrowth of the j
District auditor having been asked to ad- j
vance $iiOO provided for in the appropria- j
tion for plans and specifications to the |
trustees of the school. The District held
that the plans should be prepared by or
under the supervision of the municipal

The Commissioners requested Controller
Tracewell for an opinion. After quoting
sections of the act providing for the in- j
corporation of the board of trustees of the
