Judges Mullowny and Pugli of the Police Court and Assistant United States Attorney Ralph Given are strongly in favor of the establishment r?f an inebriate asylum in the District. In exercising the duties of their re- j spective offices all of these officers are j thrown in touch with habitual drunk- j aids, and for many years they have been in a position to study the needs of this unfortunate class of society. They declare that an inebriate asylum where habitual drunkards and vagrants c-an be treated is one of the great needs of Washington today. Judge Mullowny, who has been judge of the Police Court for a number of years, and who was prosecuting attorney in the United States branch of the court for many years prior to his first appoint ment as judge, has had opportunities of observing hundreds, if not thou sands. of the humans long addicted to the excessive use of alcohol. Judge Mullowny today said the workhouse is not the place for those who are ad dicted to the excessive use of liquor. He pointed out also that other cities of the same size as Washington are equipped with such institutions. Judge Pugh Gives Views. Judge Pugh, who was formerly prose cuting attorney, has recently finished a year as judge of the lower branch of the court, and says that during that time a greater number of unfortunates who required hospital treatment rather < than jail sentences were brought before him than in any previous year. "The number of these unfortunates will increase with the growth of the city, under present conditions." the judge said. "Any one so far gone as to be brought into court on a charge of habitual drunk enness cannot be cured of the taste for! liquor with the limited treatment we can | now recommend for them, and they ought i not to be sent to jail. "In this way." the judge continued, "we cure no one. afid new ones, the victims of conditions, must constantly appear, if we had the hospital which has been advo cated these unfortunate people could be kept there for six months, or a year, or four years, depending on how long it took to effect a cure in their individual cases. I would say that there is certainly no greater need today in Washington than for an Inebriate asylum. By that I don't Intimate that we have a larger class of 'this kind than other cities. Any city that is not equipped with such an asylum is most certainly in dire need of such an institution." Effect of Alcoholism. The same attitude toward the proposi tion is taken by Assistant United States Attorney Ralph Given, who was for years Judge Mullownv's assistant as prosecutor and now is prosecuting attorney in the United States branch of the court. Mr. Given says that countless times he has had to make a charge of larceny against a man when what he needed was treat ment for alcoholism in a hospital. "Of course, they have beer, guilty of larceny or some other small offense." Mr. Given said. "Rut the ends of justice] would have been more than satisfied if the offender could have been removed for a long time from liquor. When a man gets such a taste for whisky he will steal in order 10 get it. just as a 'dope' fiend will steal to get motyhiue or cocaine. So ciety would he far better served if this man or woman was relieved of this appe tite fur alcohol." FloiTfr* anil Floral Decoration* ?for weddings and commencements.

I The midcity Citizens' Association. ( which includes in its jurisdiction the ter ritory from New Jersey avenue to ltitli street and from G street to Rfcode island avenue, held Its third meeting last night in Carroll Institute Hall. A discussion of the alley problem was started by the president, A. J. Driscoll. who asked for views 011 the proposition for abolition of alleys, now under gen eral discussion. Charles Schreve and E. J. liannan. hoth agreed that while the colored inhabitants of alleys were needed as servants in the houses on the thor oughfares, they must have a dwelling place, and that the alleys are necessary for that purpose. Abolition as a Remedy. Mr. Schreve conceded that the alleys need reformation. Abolition, he consid ered. would be an effective way to Im prove the morals of such places. But he cited the cause of the landlord, who will lose a fair return 011 investment^ in such properties when they are done away with. He did^not understand there is any posi tive general sentiment for the abolition of alleys. The idea, he concluded, was just the result of suggestion from the slumming trips of Mrs. Woodrow Wilson, wife of the President. He did not know that Mrs. Wilson was sponsor for any such proposition. Better Street Lighting Asked. A resolution, calling for better light 1 ing on M street between 7th street and New Jersey avenue was referred to the committee on alleys. streets, buildings and parks. The chair ap pointed the following committees: Membership?John Shugru, S. R. Waters. William Fowles. J. D. Howard, John Clipper and H. G. Bergling. Public health?Dr. M. I... Turner, U. S.

Indignation Meeting Over West Vir ginia Mine Troubles Tonight. It is expected that resolutions condemn ing what is called the "barbarous mili tary rule" in West Virginia will b? adopted at an indignation meeting to b? held tonight at National Rifles' Armory under the auspices of the Central I-abor i'nion. Arrangements for this meeting were made last night at a meeting of the union in Typographical Temple. Among the speakers will be "Mother" Jones. Senator Kern and Representatives Cary. Lee and Buchanan. It is probable that resolutions indorsing Senator Kern's tight for a congressional investigation ot affairs in the coal mine district of West ; Virginia will be passed tonight. A I^abor day souvenir program contain ing advertisements will not be printed this year as the result of the decision readied yesterday by the Central Labor Union. In past years a number of busi ness men have been defrauded by bogus advertising solicitors who claimed they were authorized to solicit advertisements for the labor union's program. Louisianians to Organize. Dwellers in Washington who hail from the Pelican state plan to organize the. Louisiana State Society at a meeting to be held Thursday night at 905 F street northwest. Senator J. E. Ransdell and Representative J T. Watkins have been asked to address the assembly. He's idle, unsteady, and every one's ready to throw him a dor nick or give him a biff; he's always in tatters, but little it matters; he's evermore happy, so what is the diff? He carries no sorrow, no care for tomorrow, his roof is the heaven, his couch is the soil; no sighing or weeping breaks in on his sleeping, no bell in the morning shall call him to toil. As free as the breezes he goes where he pleases, no rude over seer to boss him around; his joys do not wither, he goes yon and hither, till dead in a haystack or ditch he is found. The joys of such freedom? no sane man can need 'em! Far better to toil for the kids and the wife, till muscles are aching and collarbone breaking, than selfishly follow the vagabond life. One laborer toiling is worth the whole boiling of idlers and tramps of whatever degree; and though we, all know it we don't find a poet embalming the fact as embalmed it should be. The poets will chortle about the blithe mortal who wanders the highways and sleeps in the hay, but who sings the toiler, the sweet spangled moiler, who raises ten kids on a dollar a day?

With less than $850 subscribed for the entertainment of the 450 members of the International Association of Po lice Chiefs, which will meet in conven tion in this city June 9-14, the Cham ber of Commerce entertainment com mittee started a fine-tooth comb cam paign today to raise the total of $2,000 necessary to carry through the pro gram as arranged. Isaac- Gans, chairman of the enter tainment committee; Thomas Grant, secretary of the Chamber of Commerce; John F. Slav en and Maj.
