STANDING OF CONTESTANTS Layton Burdette Leads With Total of 933,000 to His Credit. INCREASE IN ACTIVITY SHOWN Boy Scouts, Children of Playgrounds and Y. M. C. A. Troop to En ter Competition. Two million twn hundred, and thou sands nine hundred flips have been de stroyed since The Star s June carhpaign against the Insects Itfgart. This record is far in excess of that es tablished last month, when but a half million of the pests were killed. The June campaign, the health authorities are convinced, will go further than any other to prove the practicability of at tempting to rid communities of flies or so reducing their numbers aa to greatly minimi** them as a serious menace^ to health. Lawrence Fitzgerald and William Stein er led the contestants in the number of flies delivered to campaign headquarters In room H of the Municipal building yes terdav the former turning: in 144,000 in sects and the latter 41,000. As a re sult. Fitzgerald's record fqr the month is better than half a million, while Steiner has slain more than a quarter of a mil lion. 1.ay ton H. Burdette is the leader, with nearly a million to his credit. Record of the Contestants. The standing of the four highest con testants is as follows: I.ayton H. Bui dette. SKK5,"??*'; Lawrence Fitzgerald. ???."? Out; William Steiner, 2?2,?00, and Mark Trice. 217,300. Tag day prevented the Boy Scouts co?" mencing active hostilities against the tl> todav. but they have completed plans for entering the campaign and will be gin putting them into execution tomor row. Dr. Murray, supervisor of the work, believes that the scouts, in the few days remaining before the close of the month, will make a telling attack on the ranks of the disease carriers and will assist in producing a total slaughter for the month that will exceed three millions. Just as the June campaign has ex ceeded the record of May. the acti\ ities of July, it is believed, will produce re sults more satisfactory than those es tablished the present month. With the public schools closed for the sum mer vacation, and children of the play grounds planning to give aid, indica tions are that the slaughter of in sects next month will net eonsiderably more than 3,000.000. and that the pests will he diminished at such a rate that but comparatively few of them will be left by fall. Dr. Murray Describes Methods. I)r. Murray. yesterday. described methods of keeping households free of flies, recommending the use of the "swatter" where the number of in sects is limited, and giving the formu lae of two poisons which may be used effectively. Today the health official laid emphasis on the importance or ridding premises of flies. The removal of all waste, garbage and decaved matter from the homes at least twice a week and the keeping of gar bage in an air-tight covered can is the first step toward the ridding both house hold and premises of flies, in the opin ion of Dr. Murray. The next step Is to clean the yard, sheds and stable at least twice a week. \fter a householder has put his own premises in good condition it is f?r him to look for nuisances of a public or semi-public character which may be \o rated near him. All such nuisance* should be reported to the health depait "Tf"aU fly-breeding haunts and places which afford feeding grounds for the insects, and which are located within "1)0 vards of any residence, could be removed. Washington would become fl vless in short order. The insects would die of starvation. Heal*? aH" thorlties realize this fact, and that is whv thev insist upon property owners keeping 'their premises in sanitaiy con d<Di?nMurray is keeping a record of the accomplishments of the campaign an will turn over much of the data to ui. Howard of the bureau of ethnology r?r Howard is preparing to issue a new edition of his book dealing with the house fly. Fiy Talk by Y. M. C. A. Troop. Several members of the Y. M. C. A. troop, huddled in a store entrance out of the rain this morning, were talking flies and all seemed to asree that in a friendly way Ivavton H. Burdette, president of the Industrial School Anti-Fly Club, and leader in The Star's campaign, was their chief competitor, and if the jro?p|on r," the contest as a unit it is certain that all energies will be expended in trying to eclipse the records of Burdette. The V. M. C. A. troop has *5 and if it enters the contest it undoubtedly will be a strong contender for first Place in the July contest. The sued by the Industrial Home School (luo applies' to Boy Scout troops as wen as to schools. In fact, the school wants competition from any organisation or boys and girls, the only requirement be ing that the members of the organization be eligible for the contest according to the rules of The Star. Any boy or girl under sixteen years old may enter and, except that sttcky paper is barred, the tties may he caught in any manner. Probable District Winner. Francis Corby, an inmate of the Eighth Street Home for Destitute Colored Wom en and Children, from the present indi cations will win the flve-dollar prize for the second district of the city. It is ex pected that Corby will be a strong con tender for one of the five open prises, as well as the district prii.e next month, as he is organizing a club among his play mates to enter the contest in July. As a result of the activities of the children the home is entirely free from flies. A stable near to the home will be the cen ter of the main attack of Corby and his band. . _ Most of his assistants are now using swatters, but probably will use traps in Julv. Many of the older boys will be allowed to leave the grounds and offer their servk-es as fly exterminators to merchants in the neighborhood. BEDBUGS JUSTIFY MOVING. New Tork Court Holds Tenant May Break Lease on Account of Them. NEW YORK, June 25.?The appellate division of the supreme court of New York state has held.

ROW OVER COUNCIL SEATS Sunday School Base Ball League Formed?Election Being Held at Potomac Today. Speria! Correspondence of TBe St*r. ALfiKAMMQAi- Vs., June 25, 4t>12 Thieves last night broke into the office of Samuel D. De Vaughan & Son, 2d9 North Royal street, contracting carpen ters. and robbed the safe of its contents, $t?1.70. The robbery was discovered this morning by Mr. De Vaughan, who at once reported it to the police. The thieve.* effected an entrance into the place by breaking a hack window light and then reaching down, only a short distance, and unlocking the door. They were evidently familiar with the combination of the safe and experienced no trouble in opening.it. The money wan in a small cash drawer in the safe. The thieves left by the rear door. That the robbery was the work of some one familiar with the combination of the safe there seems to be little doubt. The safe is a small one and the money had been in it for several days, being a pri vate fund.. Nothing else in the office was disturbed by the robbers. Fight Over Council Seats. When Robert S. Rarrett and William Desmond appear in city council at its meeting tonieht with their certificates of election as members of that body from the first and second wards, respectively, and are sworn in by President Howard \V. Smith there is going to be considera ble said on both sides, and much will be said against the seating of the two new councilmen. This is because the seats that they are after are now filled by Councilmen Ur ban S. Lambert and Robert Graham. These two councilmen propose to retain their seats until they are legally deposed. Quo warranto proceedings will doubtless be instituted by the two new councilmen and the matter will be finally disposed of in the corporation court. The new set of health laws only re cently amended by the board of aldermen will he up again for consideration. Other matters of importance also are slated to be considered at this meeting. Sunday School Base Ball League. This city now has a Sunday School Base Ball League, it having been organiz ed last night at a meeting in the lecture room of the Methodist Episcopal Church South.

Motorman Carter, employed on the Washington-Virginia railway, last night had a narrow escape from injury when a trolley pole fell between the two cars ofj the train, which left Washington at 10:1,*; o'clock. The accident happened just north of Arlington junction. The wire at that point snapped, causing the pole to fall. In a few minute* traffic was re sumed, no one having been injured. The election of officers for the fown of Potomac. Alexandria county, is being held today. Not more than sixty-five votes will be polled. The only candidate who has opposition Is Mayor Henry Kremer, who is being opposed by Robert Zacharv. A large number of Alexandrians went over to Baltimore, today to attend the convention, among them a number of lo cal politicians.

Miller of Culpeper, Va., who brought suit in the corporation court here to overrule the action of the receivers of the Virginia Safe Deposit and Trust Cor poration of this city. Leap-Year Dance.
