Sylvester, chief of police, has been ftsked by the six telephone operators at police headquarters to recommend an in crease in their pay. Similar recommenda tion?- in past years were not favorably acted upon. The operators receive $7:w a year and are required to work Sundays as well as week days. In their letter to Maj. Sylvestei the op erators state: "While sincerely appreciating your past recommendations and personal efforts in trying to have our salaries increased, we understand the estimates for 1014 will be made up shortly, and we earnestly re quest you will remember us again. We think Congress will more readily allow the increase If we were called clerks, and, as a matter of fact, we do perform much clerical work besides operating switch boards. "If this idea does not meet with your approval, we would like to be blanketed Into the police department, as the civilian station clerks were In It**!.

TO MULL ALIKE IN PUBLIC ELEVATORS New Order of Things at State, War and Navy Building. With a view to the betterment of the elevator service in the State, War and Navy building. Capt. Douglass MacAr thur, who recently succeeded Capt. U. S. Grant 3d as superintendent of the build ing, has introduced several innovations in the regulations for the use of the eleva tors. The most important changes are the elimination of special service for ali .high-grade officials and the annulment of the rule whereby messengers were re stricted to the use of certain designated elevators. The general purpose of the new regu lations, Capt. MacArthur says, "is to place the traffic conduct of the elevator service on the basis common to buildings of this size and class." He adds that "the elevators are meant to facilitate the prompt dispatch of public business and Their operation, therefore, Is to be strictly Their operation, therefore, to be strictly impersonal. No special calls or special service are authorized. Complete trips will be made to the top floor and retui*n when there are passengers to be carried, stopping en route for discharge or fill." No Special Consideration. It is explained that the new arrange ment was made in the hope of making the service more satisfactory to the great mass of people who use the elevators, ajid paying less attention to the interests of a select few, holding high official posi tions, who under previous regulations were granted special consideration at the expense of all others desiring to use the elevators. The plan of restricting all the messengers to certain elevators, which was udopted by the last previous administration as an experiment, did not meet expectations in facilitating the movements of the messengers and keep ing them out of the elevators intended for the use of the general public. That plan consequently has been abandoned in favor of the new plan of throwing the elevators open to aJl alike, secretaries, assistant secretaries, senators and rep resentatives, generals and admirals, mes sengers and all classes of employes and visitors.

Information brought here by the mas ters of incoming river craft indicates that the strength of Wednesday's storm was felt not more than twenty miles down the river and that vessels lying on the Maryland side of the river felt it more than vessels lying under the Vir ginia shore. Capt. Bob Carroll, master of the Wash ington-owned fishing schooner Virginia, brought his vessel into port yesterday to repair damages .received in the storm. The big seine boat belonging to the schooner was crushed by the seas and nets and everything on deck was swept away as the vessel lay at anchor of! Broad creek. In the height of the storm the vessel began to drag anchors, but took up after she had drifted a mile or two. The getting loose of a water bar rel under the heavy rolling of the vessel caused damage to her rail as the barrel plunged through it into the water. Capt. Carroll asserts that he never saw a worse storm and that the vessel was frequently swept from stem to stern by big seas. Captain Expected Death. Capt. Rison, master of the schooner Carrie Revell, In port with wood from Chicomuxen creek, says he never ex pected to reach Washington alive. On the approach of the storm he anchored his schooner near McG-hiesport, Md., about ten iniles below this city and made ready for the blow. The wind, rain and hall came at once. Every moment the cap tain expected the boat to sink under him. The schooners Josephine Smith, Bel mont and Bertha May were also out in the storm, but it was not as severe where they were as it was nearer this city, but they were considerably shaken up. It was reported that the Josephine Smith had sunk in the storm, but lying at the 9th street wharf she shows no trace of having had a battle with the elements. As a result of her encounter with the gale, the schooner Belmont came into port with split sails, but without being otherwise damaged. In spite of the severity of the gale, it is said that not a vessel or life was lost on the river, though the wind reached a velocity of about seventy miles, according to the estimates of the rivermen.

At the request of the prosecuting at torney in the District branch of the Police Court, the hearing of the mo tion to quash an information charging a man with providing a minor with liquor, which has been pending for some weeks, has been postponed in definitely. Attorney Alvin Newmyer, who rep resents the accused man.

The prosecuting attorney told Mr. Newmyer that he wanted more time to look into the question involved, and prepare authorities for combating the contention made by the defense. Counting the Years By WALT MASON The years shouldn't count when we're stating our age, for some men are young when they're gray, and others are old ere they've journeyed a stage in this world and its wonderful way. I know an old graybeard who ought to be dead if years laid a man by the heels; he cheerily sings as he stands on his head: "A man's just as old as he feels." The years do not age us so badlyy in truth; it's worry that makes the blood cold; the man who is blessed with the spirit of youth is young when a hun dred years old; the graybeard I wot of, he laughs and he yells and dances Virginia reels, and al ways and ever his roundelay swells "A man's just as old as he feels." No man should admit that his days are near told, or talk of the past with a sob; no man should admit that he's growing too old to eat summer corn from the cob; the graybeard I speak of, he's slicker than grease, he cheers up the world with his spiels: he says (and his words suggest comfort and peace); "A man's just as old as he feels." I know a young man who is thirty or less, in years, but he's old as the hills; he goes around looking for grief and distress, and talks by the day of his ills. The graybeard, God bless him, is younger than that! He ne'er at the wailing place kneels; he chortles, while kicking a hole through his hat: A man's just as old as he feels!" Jc CITY ITEMS.
