Police Operators Ask Chief Sylvester
to Recommend Pay Increase.
Maj. 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**!. Our ages are
from twenty-live to fifty-three, four of us
i>eing married, and we find it difficult to
mak- both ends meet under our present
salary of $720 a year."

ULTRA-VIOLET RAYS FAIL.
rried by Department of Agriculture
in Sterilizing Milk.
The ultra-violet rays are out of a job
to, far as the Department of Agricul
;ure is concerned. The department has
:rled them for sterilizing milk, and
:hey decidedly will not do, according
;o an official statement issued today.
These rays have been used abroad
irlth some success in sterilizing drink
iig water.^ This led the department to
try them on milk, but they not only
lid not kill all the "buirs," but they
rave the milk a decided flavor that
would have interfered with his div
deuds had Secretary Houston been run
linir a commercial dairy.
The rays were tried again on dirty
ntlk bottles and attain they failed.
Efforts to sterilize cream were even less
tuccessful than on milk. No scientific
explanation of the failure is attempted,
nit the fact remains that the ultra
violet rays decidedly will not do.

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.

VESSELS REACH PORT
AFTER FIGHT WITH STORM
Craft on Maryland Side of River
Last Wednesday Afternoon
Worst Hit.
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.

GENTRY'S CASE POSTPONED.
Prosecutor Wants Time to Combat
Contention of Defense.
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. William Gen
try, filed his motion in court more
than two weeks ago, basing it on the
ground that the new excise law re
peals and takes precedence over all
other excise laws in Washington, and
that the new law has no prohibition of
this sort in it. except as it applies to
licensed dealers.
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!"
