SEQUEL TO FLY WAR
Will Prepare for Clean-Up of
City Next Spring.
EDUCATION OF THE CIT4ZEN
Proposed to Send Instructions to
EARLY CONFERENCE WISHED
Leading Swatters Making Every Ef
fort to Win the Campaign
The Star's all-summer fly war. which is
to end in September, -will be followed by
commencement of preparations by the
clean city committee to make conditions
extremely unfavorable for the appearance
of the Insect next spring.
The committee la the permanent organi
sation which grew out of the clean city
crusade conducted by The Star last April.
In accordance with Its constitution the
first fall meeting will be held on the sec
ond Tuesday in September.
John G. McGrath. chairman of the sub
committee on membership, today request
ed Dt. Arthur L.. Murray, secretary of
the general body, to call a meeting of
the subcommittee come time this month.
It is Mr. MeGrath's plan to provide for
as general representation on the commit
tee as possible.
Work to Be Done This Fall.
Although It is Improbable that the com
mittee will decide on a clean-up cam
paign for the fall, it practically is cer
tain that subcommittees will be appointed
to consider the District s contract sys
tem for the disposal of garbage and
other refuse, and matters generally relat
ed to civic sanitation. Instructions for
the guidance of citizens in keeping then
premises clean and co-operating with the
District authorities to the end of im
proving the sanitary conditions of tpe
capital as a whole will be prepared and
distributed among householders.
" Next spring the committee may decide
to conduct another clean-up campaign, it
is believed that at the end of the coming
winter Washington will be cleaner than
It usually is at that season, and that the
early flies will find subsistence difficult.
Benefits of the Clean-Up.
Inspectors of the heaJth department of
4he District are unanimous in the asser
tion that the educational benefits of the
last clean-up crusade are still being felt.
Not only were tons of dirt removed dur
ing the crusade, but householders gener
ally have striven to prevent refuse from
collecting. Washington is declaredto be
cleaner this summer than in
this condition, augmented by the heavy
slaughter of flies. Is believed to be re
sponsible for the fact that
been exceptionally few cases of typhoid
Exertions of the Swatters.
Deliveries of flies daily at the cam
paign headquarters in the Municipal
building tend to prove the assertion ot
the contestants that the insects have
become scarce. Many of the young
crusaders are extending their opera
tions to new territory.
Lawrence Fitzgerald has the best
record of any of the co"testant? *'1

to be among the leaders this month, as

flToJ the^lSf of Dr. Murray that the
SS f^^rflv^^irs11 '"The"insects
exterminated at an unprecedented
rate last month and the cool weather of

Cincinnati Fighting the Fly.
Cincinnati, famous for fire engines,
large families and the amount of beer j
its cltlsens consume, has started a cam
paign against the flies, which, if success
ful probably will bring the Ohio city
more into the limelight than any of its
other accomplishments. An attempt is
being iftade to create such an antipathy
againstthe pests in all of the homes of
the city that the residents will rise up
in aims aaalnst them and use every ef
fort to rid the community ?f the germ
The health authorities of the city have
recommended traps, poison^ and R*at
ters" and various other methods of put
ting an end to the fly nuisance but any
means, fair or foul, that results in de
creasing the fly market is agreeable to
the backers of the campaign.
Practically all of the bulletins received
bv the Dtstrict health office from health
officers of cities all over the United
States have articles warning the people
of the dangers of flies as disease germ
carriers. Although for years the fly has
been recognized as a common enemy to
health, it appears that only recently or
ganized fights on them have been carried
?nif the fighters all over the country,
many of whom are entering the field for
the first time this year, are as Persistent
in their attempts to exterminate the files
as the flies are in fighting for their lives
it is probable that the anti-fly campaigns
will meet with success.

AIM AT JOB HARM
IN TRIAL OF DARROW
Trying to Show Connection
With Men Guilty of the
Los Angeles Outrage.
IANGELES, Cal., August S.?The
alleged connection between the men who
blew up the Times building in lx?s An
geles and Job Harriman, socialist leader
and labor attorney, overshadowed the
main issue involved when the bribery trial
of Clarence S. Darrow was resumed today.
Judge Hutton was expected to rule when
court convened on the admissibility of
testimony of Edward Adams Cantrell, an
other socialist leader, which the prosecu
tion declared would serve the double pur
pose of impeaching Harriman and show
ing him as having had guilty knowledge
of the perpetrators of the Times explo
sion. Cantrell and Harriman broke up
their friendship some months ago. The
Impeachment question which had been
denied by Harriman, and which was ex
pected to be answered in the affirmative
by Cantrell. should the court permit it,
contained in substance the following alle
"That Harriman had said to Cantrell
on the morning of October 1. at 8an L?uis
Obispo, Cal.: 'By God, Cantrell, the
Times building has been dynamited and
something like twenty people killed.'
'"That Harriman had taken Cantrell to
his room in a hotel, locked the door, and
then burst into a fit of laughter, after
which i'antrell said. 'What does it mean?"
"That Harriman replied that 'It means
the boys art- on the job' ; that a few
minutes later Harriman said 'I have
known for some time that preparations
were being made to pull off the job,' and
that in the resulting conversation Jlarri
man told Cantrell he Lad been in con
sultation with the plotters land had
begged them to postpone the matter until
after the state socialist convention; thai
<*antrell at that time was soc.ialist can
didate for secretary of state, and last
faJi he ran for a member of the board
of education on the ticket which Harri
man headed as a candidate for mayor."
According to Harriman, Cantrell was his
ardent supporter and warm friend until
a recent split among the California so
cialists, when he became a bitter enemy,
CATLIN IS RENOMINATED
Patrick Gill, Who Fought for
His Seat, Goes Down
The fortunes of Theron Catlin. the
young politician from St. Louis, who is
to marry Miss Laura Merrlam, a Wash
ington girl, seem to go down one day
and bob up serenely the nest. Right
upon the heels of the news that the
House elections committee No. 2 had
decided to recommend that Mr. Catlin's
seat in the House be forfeited to Rep
resentative Catlin's political adversary,
Patrick Gill, comes the news from St.
Louis that Gill has been defeated at the
city primaries for renomlnation, and that
Catlin has again been chosen by the re
publicans to run on their ticket.
William Igoe, a democrat, has been
chosen by the St. Louis demoorats of the
eleventh district to run against Catlin
for the next Congress. Missouri repub
licans, who have been helping Catlin, say
that Gill, who is an astute politician, felt
too sure of his strength in St. Louis.
While he was here in Washington devot
ing his energy to making out his case
against Catlin in the elections committee,
'William Igoe was laying hla plans to be

"This just taxation the millionaires of
the dominions and the United States have
