Penitentiaries Refuse to Take
Slayer of Husband.
OFFICIALS HAVE PROBLEM
*
Kansas Prison Authorities Declare
District Must Move Forty
Women at Lansing.
Mattie Lomax. colored, slayer of her
husband. Cecil Lomax. who is under sentence
of life imprisonment, having escaped
the gallows through executive
clemency, is without a home. She still is
in the District jail, but under the terms
of her sentence she must be sent to a
penitentiary. Thus far the government
has found no penitentiary where the of- j
ficiais will rfceive her. and she may have
to remain in ti e local jail for an indefinite
period.
It was the intention of the Department
of Justice and jail officials to send Iier
to the state prison at Lansing, Kan., but
officials of that prison refuse to accept
her. Not only do they refuse to accept
the murderess, but they have notified the
Department of Justice that all the woman
prisoners from this city will have to be
taken 'rom there, and. it is stated, there
are about forty of them, twenty more
from here than the state. j
Matter of Conjecture.
Where .Mstli? Lomax will spend her remaining
years is a matter of conjecture.
Jail officials believe she eventually will
go to the Government Hospital for the
Insane, as her conduct is such as to indicate
that she is mentally irresponsible.
The prisoner continues as troublesome as
she was before President Taft commuted
her sentence to life imprisonment.
It is said that officials of the Department
of Justice have asked officials of
the Kansan prison to keep the woman
prisoners from this city until the completion
of the woman's ward at the federal
prison at Leavenworth, but it is thought:
the request will not be granted. The j
Lansing officials arc anxious to get rid of
the added responsibility of caring for the
Washington prisoners, and it is probable
they soon will have to move.
Coupled with the request that the
prisoners be permitted to remain in the
Lansing prison until the completion of
the women's ward at Leavenworth was
a request that Mattie Lomax be added to
the number. It is said that the women's
ward at Leavenworth will not be finished
for a year or two, and the Kansas prison
officials are not desirous of caring for the
federal prisoners for so long a time.
Reasons Not Known Here.
Why the Lansing authorities are
anxious to get rid of the Washington
prisoners is not known here. It is j
possible that they fear overcrowding
of the prison or that the Washington
women are too troublesome. The ques
tion of where Mattie is to be sent, it
is thought, will be determined in a
few days.
Eighteen men under sentence to
serve in the penitentiary are in the
local jail, and there seems to be some
doubt as to where they will be sept.
They may be sent to Atlanta or
Leavenworth, or they may be divided
into groups of short and long term
prisoners. Should this be done it is \
probable that those under sentence of
more than two years will be sent to
Leavenworth, while those who are to
serve two years or under will go to J
Atlanta
It was stated this morning thai the
eighteen prisoners may be held here
ur.til about November J, by which time
the number probably wlM be largely
Increased.

Former Superintendent of

ages against the District of Columbia
for injuries received March 16,
1908, from falling into a manure pit in
an alley between 13th, 14th, I and K
streets northwest. Mr. Wood was inspecting
the alley at the time of the
accident, in accordance with his duty
as a District officer, he then being an
inspector.
According to the testimony presented
by Attorneys C. A. Keigwin, W. J.
Neale and J. N. England, for the plaintiff.
the pit has been located in this
public alley since 1886 and there is no
records in the office of the building
inspector of its existence.
Witnesses claimed the District was
negligent in falling to see that, the
doors covering the pit were kept in
proper repair. The covering was
shown to have been in a defective condition
for some time prior to the accident.
The District in defense attempted to
show that the pit was connected with
? K1 .-v Vision rr 4 n #r* 4" rv AVI ?* 4* Vl f\
a? oiauic MCiuiigiii^ tw v iv- v*.
foreign embassies and that it had no
power to bring the owner into court.
As the pit was in a public alleyway
Justice Wright declined to admit this
contention. The District also urged
that the defect in the covering was a
latent one and not discernible under
ordinary inspection.
Mr. Wood's connection with the District
government was severed early in
1911. The suit was filed some months
afterward.
Assistant Corporation Counsel Stephens
represented the District at the trial.

department. The number is in excess of
all previous records for the same length
of time and if the result of the order of
the Commissioners, which went into effect
July 1, r?iquiring the pound officials
to collect stray cats on request for the
purpose of exterminating them.
During the same period, it is announced,
1.080 dogs were impounded, but
many of these were liberated upon the
payment of $2 redemption fees. All of
the cats collected were exterminated.
The total number of calls made for animals
in different parts of the city by the
pound force from July 1 to October 5 was
1,743.
Holds Record Unusual.
"This is an unusual record," said Harry
C. McDean, chief clerk of the heaJth department,
today, "especially in view of
tho fact that recent legislation necessitated
the reduction of the laboring force
of the pound to four men.
"In addition, the pound force has been
kept busy moving the stable to the new
pound on South Capitol street between
H and 1 streets southwest, and many of;
the 1,743 calls referred to were made to!
the remotest borders of the District-"
As a result of the recent activities of j
the pound force, under the direction of!
Poundmaster Bmil Knhn, Washington's
population of back-alley serenaders is
now smaller than it lias ever been. It is
said that a large per cent of the felines
exterminated were diseased and of a
worthless variety.

XiiaDoraie ueremomai meeting
Tomorrow Evening.
Mount Vernon is the goal of the
Scottish Rite Masons and their friends
today, and for the purpose of the ex- i
cursion all other business was.suspended.
Several hundred of the visitors,
with American Masons of the three
jurisdictions and their friends and '
families, made the pilgrimage, the boat
leaving the wharf at 10 o'clock this
morning. Returning the party will
leave the boat at Alexandria for the ,
purpose of seeing the historical relics i
of Masonry in that city, leaving later 1
by the electric line for Washington,
where they will be met with automobiles
and taken for further sightseeing.
It is generally believed the confer- !
ence will have concluded its business ,
by the Saturday session, and that it (
will be found that much has been accomplished
along the lines of the objects
sought to be attained.
After the outing today it is believed
that many American Masons who came
I to Washington because of the confer- (
ence will return to their homes, leaving
only the delegates, who will remain until
the close of the conference. The work
tomorrow will consist mainly of section

The next big event will be the elaborate

will be conferred on the international
conference class of eighteen candidates
I by the degree staff of the consistory, beI
fore the several sovereign grand commanders
and other representatives to the
conference, at the invitation of Sovereign
Grand Commander Richardson.
Saturday morning the sessions of the
conference will be resumed and the farewell
addresses probably will be made.

Importance of Getting Winter's Coal 1
to Occoqnan Before Freeze Comes.
Work is being pushed on the repairs to J
the boiler of the District tug General War- 1
ren, but it will be a week or more before
the steamer is ready to return to service,
towing between this city and the Dis-:;
trict workhouse at Occoquaji, Va. Mean- j i
while the lighters laden with coal for 1
the workhouse and with brick and stone! <
at the workhouse for this city are being
moved by chartered tugs, and two or j
three trips ar? being made each week
between this city and the workhouse :
grounds. It is stated that the District
recently contracted for 10,000 tons of coal
for use at the workhouse, and of this
quantity only about half has been delivered
so far. The officials in charge of
the shipping of the coal are making!
every effort to get the fuel to the work-j
house before the coming of freezing
weather. Occoquan creek has been1
known to freeze In November, and when !
it once freezes the sheet of ice, it is
stated, remains on it until the spring ]
thaw remains, and effectually puts a stop
to communication with the workhouse by
water. Then all supplies have to be
taken to Occoquan bv rail, necessitating
a haul of a nrile or two from the nearest
station.
