Mr. Moss' Address.
In his summing up yesterday afternoon
Assistant District Attorney Moss said it
was of no consequence which one of the
seven men charged with killing Rosenthal
fired the fatal shot; all were equally
guilty. He declared that the defense
had charged the district attorney "not
only by innuendo but by direct accusation."

charge were true By this vilification,
he continued the defense betrayed its
own weakness.
"'Can we go Into the cesspool and rick
out what witnesses we want?" he asked.
"We canned help the character of the witnesses
The fact t at the district attorney
has been denounced by tut defense
simply shows the desperation of its counsel."
He declared that Mr. Mclntyre had misquoted
the evidence of Jack Rose and had
omitted Rose's dec.aration that Becker
had sa d he w anted Rosenthal "murdered,
dynamited, shot or croaked."
He also cited other ev.dence on which

Meals Served Despite Strike,
Managers Claim.
Police Guards Have No Trouble
With Pickets at Hotels.
Union Employes Also Declare Chambermaids
and Bellboys Are
Beady to Go Out.
Despite the fact that 20O men and boys
(employers' estimate) or 400 (union estimate)
waiters and other employes of the
Ra eiph and New Willard hotels and
the Cafe ReDllblbn-.e went on a strike last
night at 7 o'clock, leaving the restaurants
practically destitute of help, the
two hotels claim they served breakfast
to guests this morning with waiters
hired in the last twelve fiours. The Cafe
Republique opened at noon as usual. A
few of the employes of the Powhatan
Hotel also duit, but it is said they were
few in number. Clifford Lewis, manager
of this hostelry, said this morning
that the strike, as far as he was concerned.
was a thing of the past, and that
he had a complete crew in all departments.
It is different, however, at the Raleigh.
This house was the hardest hit by the
wa kout. The situation is such that a
wedding reception which was to have
been held there this afternoon will be
held elsewhere upon the advice of the
Bo h the New Wil'ard and the Raleigh
are importing waiters from New York ;
and say that by dinner time tonight they
wi.l have plenty of expeiienced help.
Claim Becruits Will Quit.
Union officials, on the other hand, claim
that as fast as the hotels recruit their
depleted forces the men will join the
union and quit. The Cafe Republique,
which is controlled by the same proprietor
as Harvey's, suffered little inconvenience.
Although practically all of the
employes of the Republique quit. Joel
Hillman. manager of Harvey's, wa?
quick to the rescue with automobile loads
of colored waiters from Harvey's. This
morning Mr. Hillman used his machine
again as a waiter delivery magon, mak
ing several trips to tne union station ror
imported colored waiters, who were imined
ately uniformed.
The managers of the houses ffected
are handling the situation individually,
and so far no meeting of them has been
called. The Raleigh has announced tnat
it will hire colored waiters for one of its
dining rooms and use white heip in the
other. Manager Weston of the Ralei-;h
said this morning that positively under
no circumstances would he take back any
of the men who struck, and that colored
waiters for the one dining room was a
permanent move
It is possible that the strike will result
in an agreement between the managers
of the affected establishments to hire
colored waiters exclusively. The union
Ciaims prices of food will have to be reduced
if colored men are employed. All
the managers said this morning they had j
bo contract with any union, and that the i
SiriKt was canea wimuui uiavunmun in
any demands of employes. The strikers,
on the other hand, claim that demands
were made and ignored, and that the
outnagers could have averted the strike
by giving consideration to committees
from the union, who saw* the employers
several months ago. ,*

Notified Yesterday ? veiling.
Although the employes knew that a
strike was to be called the first notice
they received of the definite time was
last evening at 5:30 o'clock, just an hour
and a half before the whistle was blown.
Edward Blochlnger. an organizer of the
International Hotel Workers' I'n'.on, and
R. Richard* president of Washington
local. No. 2, to which the strikers be
long, are In charge of the strikers' plans
and have urged the men not to discuss
their business In public places. This
union includes, not only waiters, but all
employes of hotels and restaurants, and it
is asserted that at any moment the bell
boys, chambermaids and others will an
swcr tne striae ran, ana mere is a possibility
of the walkout extending to some
of the smaller houses.
Some of the n.en favored holding hack
the strike until election night, but leaders
thought it inadvisable, as this would
injure the public.
The waiters are asking for more money,
shorter hours and "decent food." There
also are many rules regarding fines for
breakage which the strikers claim are
What the Strikers Demand.
The demands in a nutshell are these:
A working week of not more than fiftyeight
hours for woman employes, with
an increase of $5 a month in their pay,
and one day a week off with pay.
A working day of not more than
ten hours for cooks and one day a
week off with pay.
A regular wage of $10 a week for
waiters, with two days off each month
with pay.
An increase of 15 per cent in the pay
of ail other employes.
Better food and working conditions
for all.
The question of better food seems to
be the most important of all. and the
chief grievance discussed by groups
of the strikers on the streets today
was that of food. That the strike will
last for some time is the opinion of
the men who have quit.
Following the walkout last night a mass
meeting attended by all the strikers was
held at the old Masonic Temple, i>th and
F streets northwest. Several speeches
were made and picketing committees appointed.
The members of the committees
were appointed for their persuasive ability.
No Arrests Necessary.
Although many of the strikers admitted
this morning that tbe hot*)s will be able
to get employes to till their places, they
said that that was what thev n-n.rt.ii
and that the newcomer* would not last
for many Gays before they would be persuaded
to join the union. Although a
dertnlte decision had not been made this
morning, it Is probable that a mass meeting
of the strikers will be held tonL t.
Only holders of union cards will be admitted.
When the strike was called last night
policemen were quickly on the scene, but j
no arrests were necessary All of the 1
empioyea* entrances are guarded by po- ;
llcemen today, and in fact policemen are |
conspicuous all around the buildings in ;

everywhere on the downtown screes, I
but have been orderly and heeded the;
"move on" injunctions of the police.
Soir ? employes of the hote s. who re- <
fused to quit are unable to get food at !
their places of employment and have .
been forced to eat at some of the more
prebeian eating-places Some of the lunchrooms
at noon today were crowded with
employes of the New VViliard and Kaleigh.
Price of Spoons, Forks and Other Articles
Is Increased.
MCW YORK. October 24.?Owing to Increase
in the price of 6ilver bullion, manufacturers
of ster'ing silver flatware
have advanced the price of spoons, forks
and tableware approximately 1U per cent.
In January last silver bar was quoted
in the New York market at 57 cents an
ounce. The price today is slightly above
tio cents an ounce.
The reason given for the upward movement
is the fact that the Indian government
has come Into the murks; as a
heavy buyer of silver bullion.

Justice Barnard Acts in Behalf of
Laundry Drivers.
An injunction recently granted by Justice
Barnard against Kenneth Skinner
and Joseph Harty was modified by the
justice today. The terms of the former
injunction restrained the men from engaging
in the laundry business in this
city because of alleged violations of contracts
made with the Manhattan Laundry
Company, by which they had previously
been employed.
The pleadings show that after the men
had been for some time in the employ of
the company they were required to sign
contracts agreeing not to solicit any of
the business of the company and not to
engage in the laundry business in the
District for a period of one year after
they should leave the company's employment.
Attorneys S. McComas Hawkin and
John Ridout. representing the drivers,
contended that the contract was unreasonable,
and should not be enforced.
Justice Barnard modiiied the Injunction
and reserved the question as to the
validity of the contract until final hearing.

cell in the jail here she sturdily maintains
her innocence of the crime for which
she is held.
For many months the well at the rear
of Mrs. SymeFs garden has been the
cause of a neighborhood feud. It is
noted for its cold, clear water, and school
children were accustomed to visit it to
slake their thirst. Housewives in the
neighborhood preferred to replenish their
drinking supply from the well rather
than to use the water provided by the
city. Mrs. Symer last summer began tc
war against the trespassers.
For several days there have been many
puzzling cases of illness, according to the
board of health, among the children living
near the Symer home. The symptoms
in every instance resembled those
of arsenic poisoning.

J The question of diet will be considered, e
: A paper by Miss F. I. Wilbur of this f
city, recently published, gives much val- 1
uahle information on the subject.
"If the importance of food as a factor <j
In the development and cure of chronic a
| diseases was more generally recognized," b
she says, "cooking schools would ?
supplement or be a post-graduate g
, course for even a college educa- ri
tion, for a course in domestic science P
would be considered indispensable ,
t to the complete education of either s|
( man or woman. In the interests of pub- ti
lie health men as well as women should d?
' be taught the science of mutritlon and le
the. effects of various foods on the sys- w;
" tern, so that even where it was unnec- aj
I essary for them to do the cooking them- C<
I selves they would know better how to or- is
dor suitable *food for their consumption ai
either at hore or in hotels or restaurants, si
The great importance of the proper choice ai
i and preparation of foods and their rela- te
tion to the problems of health and dis- Pt
ease led Detweiler to say 'my kitchen is if
my pharmacy.' This should be the posi- b<
tion of the kitchen in every well regu- Pi
lated household. A
Appetite a Reasonably Safe Guide, lo
"As a rule the appetite Is a reasonably m
, safe guide for a person in normal health. E
llic palate seems to be a sort of general!
h.usekeeper of the system, receiving J.J*
telegraphic intimations from the various jg
parts of the body as to what sort of
food they crave and which of the foods
1 offered for their consideration contain
the mineral constituents which they need
and can accept, but this palate housekeeper
is so often abused and disregarded ai
that it is not always faithful In Its duty,
an t Indigestion results. Malnutrition from
improper diet or overfeeding as well as
from lack of food brings in its train a
predisposition to a host of other ills. ni
"Fever and plague are well known to es
follow In the footsteps of famine. The ai
epidemic ophthalmia so prevalent In bt
oriental countries also selects the under- su
fed for its preferred victims. The potato be
famine in Ireland was followed by a pt
liability to relapsing fever and typhus ps
from the underfeeding which the famine ar
caused. Impairment of digestion is a gr
usual and striking resu't of underfeed- M
in.gr. It also affects the m!nd and inclines ai
one to impulsive, irrational and even
violent and self-destructive acts. It is a ar
common saying that *a hungry man is an m
angry man' and that the way to reach a fo
man's heart Is to feed him well. ci
"Hutchinson says that deficient diet, cc
lik?* all morbid conditions both corporeal ut
and mental, is a vitiating and degenerat- di
ing influence. Famine Is naturally the ci
mother of crimes and vices not only of tu
such sort as will satisfy the gnawing de- gz
, sire for food, but of general violence and al
lawlessness, ill temper, avarice, lust and jn
cruelty. . ta
, Peril of Underfeeding. if
"To this arraignment It may be added n<
that besides Insanities of various degrees 1"
underfeeding or malnutrition from any
cause has a tendency to lead to tubereu- (.j
losis, alcoholism, scurvy, suicide and in- hf
tense selfishness. All of these defects are th
as often noted among the very rich, whose **
purses allow them to indulge excessively cc
in all sorts of agreeable but unsuitable or
Indigestible food, as they are noted among ^
the very poor, who cannot afford to buy
enough of any food, much less buy the .
food they crave. s'
"Underfeeding or partial starvation
gives an even greater liability to tuberculosis
than does overfeeding Hutchinson
says that the association between bad
feeding and phthisis and scrofula is Well
established, and that diabetics living in a p
chronic state of partial bodily starvation
I are especially liable to tuberculosis.
s "A German scientist seems to have originated
the expression common among
medical men that every human being is a Ir
little tuberculous, and the fact that tul :r- ai
culous lesions, mostly healed, can be d,
found in the bodies of practically every
. one who dies above the age of thirty-five f;
makes the consideration of the prevention hi
of tuberculosis or its cure by proper treat- M
ment and alimentation a matter of great X;
. and universal importance, especially to
the housekeepers of homes where any
' members of the household have a here-w
tary or acquired predisposition to tuber- g<
- culosis. vi
"Dr. Robert W. Burnet says (Foods and R
I Dietaries. A Manual of Clinical Dietetics, gt
London, 1903. p 97) that phthisis is es- m
1 sentlally a wasting disease, and the great
' object of all treatment, dietetic, thera- tj
peutic and climatic, is to raise the nutri- t0
. tion. tr
, Diet of First Importance.
"Osier says that as a healing of a tuberculous
process is largely oependent
! upon the state of nutrition, the question Jfl
' of diet becomes o fthe very first impor1
tance. It is also said that *a good diet
' and fresh air at home are to be preferred
! id starvation in a suitable climate. Don't fo
' spend too much mopc-y on railroad fare a
. and too little on food." W
i "Dr. Thomas Mays of Philadelphia has or
ably maintained that consumption is pri- bu
marily a d'sease of the vagous or pneu- w!
| mogastrlc nerve, which is a regulator of ca
! the heart, lungs and stomach and is closei
ly connected with the oxygenation proc- in
esses in the body. There is much to be th
said in favor of this idea, for consump- nt
tives certa nly show symptoms of pro- ra
gressive deoxygenation, and consequent
carbonic acid poisoning of the system, in
Others have claimed that the develop- de
ment of consumption is due to insuffl- pi
cient functioning of a slowly dying me- flr
dulla. As the medulla oblongata contains
vartous centers. Including the center of cs
' lung respiration, the center of the or- tv
gans of circulation, the center for cer*
i tain movements and secretions of the alli
mentary canal, and the center for the
secretion of sweat and tears, all of which
are more or less affected in tuberculosis, tut
it is more than probable that a relation a
can be shown to exist between the rnnrfl. a
tlon of the medulla and the central
nervous system ami tne symptoms of tu- 1
berculosis. The medulla Is also said to til
have an evident part in the regulation of th,

Miss Wilbur continues: be
"Abundant rest and fresh air. both of dii
which facilitate the accumulation of oxy- th
gen in the system, as well as cleanliness ]
and warmth, are details of hygiene which th
are found greatly to facilitate the process
of recuperation in tuberculosis.
"For over 2.000 years medical writers oa
have from time to time recognized the ft,
importance of suitab'e diet in cases of
phthisis or tuberculosis, but their ideas of ]
what was suitable have been somewhat j
varied. Even the milk cure so popular co

"Among the vegetables recommended
or the tuberculous are onions, tomatoes,
pinach, asparagus, lettuce. cresses,
elery, greens and peas. Sometimes rice
r potatoes are allowed, though both
ave special disadvantages. In some
tages of the disease one of them can be
aten, while the other will cause distress,
specially if eaten with much salt. So
ar as is possible it seems best to avoid
hem both.
"Among the fruits found useful In the
reatment of the disease are figs, prunes,
ried apricots, tamarrds, apples (which
re best if cooked with lemon Juice or
aked, but can sometimes be eaten raw),
ranges, grape fruit (which is to be
iken on rising in the morning), me'ons,

"While fresh fish, eels, salmon, mackerel

Effort may be made by the authorities 1
of the District of Columbia to prevent
[ the absorption of the Washlngton-Vir|
ginia Railway Company in the thirty-million-dollar
merger scheme being financed j
, and promoted by the Maryland-Virginia
Railway Company.
It is understood that the office of the
corporation counsel ot the District is
looking into the question of whether an
objection similar to the one raised against |
the merger of the Braddock Light and
Power Company and Arlington Company
with the holding corporation, which was
sustained by the Virginia corporation
commission, would not be practical for
the purpose of opposing the taking over
of the Washington-Virginia concern.
Were Not in Similar Business.
The corporation commission decided ;
against the merging of the electric lighting
companies on the ground that the
Maryland-Virginia Company cannot be
said to be engaged in a similar business.
Inasmuch as the holding corporation is
not engaged in business of any kind, the
question has presented itself to District
officials of whether, under the laws of
Virginia, it could merge with a railroad
company, such as the Washington-Vir- j
No further opposition is expected to be i
made to the merger scheme by tho Alexandria
County Lighting Company, which
owns forty-three shares of the stock of
the Arlington Electric Company, and petitioned
the Virginia corporation commission
to reject the merger a replication.
It has been pointed out that the plana I
for the merging of the Washington-Vir- j
ginia Company with the thirty-milliondollar
corporation may not mee; with ob- ;
jection unless the District authorities de- ~
cide to take a hand in the matter.
May Drop Fight on Merger.
According to Leo P. Harlow, attorney
for the Alexandria County Lighting Company,
that company in all probability will
drop the fight on the merger unless renewed
effort should be made to acquire
the Arlington Electric Company.
It is understood, that, there will be no !
appeal from the decision of the corporation
commission, and that the merger
promoters will proceed with their plans
for the absorption of the WashingtonVirginia
A meeting of the directors of the latter
concern probably will be held within I
the next two weeks. Should this property I
he acquired, it wou d then be possible
for the Maryland-Virginia Railway Com- I

business and make another app ication
for the taking over of the Braddock
