Halloween Night With Po
lice on Guard.
By the Ghost of Halloween.
It's an awful thing to destroy an
illusion, but what chance has a grhost
or a goblin or a boy or girl in the
guise of either when Maj. Sylvester
gathers all his precinct captains about
him and tells them to keep their men
busy on Halloween night? Honestly,
now, what chance have they, anyway?
And that is just what MaJ. Sylvester is
planning* to do.
We ghosts used to have a fine time
of it on Halloween. The police or con
stables or sheriffs or whatever it was
that guarded the city used to be more
considerate. If a shrouded spook threw
a handful of flour in a person s face
or ran away with a gate or greased
the street car track there wasn't any
And then those ticktacks. * What's
become of them, anyway? They used
to be the best little playthings ghosts
had. They were great things to make
mean old maids scream or break up a
spooning party in the back parlor be
tween Mary and her best beau. But
now' What chance have we. I want
to know?
Juvenile Court and Family Slipper.
What's the fun of throwing flour
when you know a policeman is sure to
catch you and take you before Judge
[ Latimer in the Juvenile Court Sa.t
urday?just think of it. Saturday?a
| school holiday, too. And then when
I Judge Latimer gets through with you
what is likely to happen to a poor
spook when he gets home and the old
family slipper gets into' use? That's
110 fun at all.
I Say, spookin's gettin' to be bad busi
ness. isn't it? All the graveyards are
way out in the country. and they are
not called graveyards any more, but,
just plain cemeteries. Cemeteries'. Oof!
Nothin' spooky about that, is there,
honest, now? What can you do in a
plain cemetery, surrounded by a high
I wall?
Holy smoke! What is there to do
Friday night, anyway? Nothing that
I know of except to go to some old
pa^ty and sit around and play some old
game, all dressed up in party clothes.
Of course, the eats are left, and that
helps some. But not much. You can't
stop eating, now, can you? Of course
Remember how we put the grease
all over old man Jones' front steps
and made him fall down aiTd swear
when he came out to go to the thea
ter? Ha, ha, great fun. wasn't it? And
remember how we greased the tracks
on the 14th street hill and the car slip
ped all the way down and hit a milk
wagon at the bottom and turned it
over? My, but wasn't that motorman
What Happens Then?
But now? Supposin' a ghost goes out
all fixed up in white with a fine young
pumpkin all lit up with a candle and
a big bag of flour and stretches ropes
across the sidewalk and hangs tick
tacks on people's windows, and steals
gates, and puts a bucket of water over
the? front door so sister gets her new
hat all wet, and throws things at
policemen, and?but what s the use
goin' on? Nothin' doin'.
In these days a real spook or a kia
hasn't got any chance at all. Halloween
seems to be made for the grownups. All
the cafes are getting busy reserving
tables and putting up decorations and
preparing souvenirs. What for. Why.
the big people, of course. And the thea
ters are going to have special programs
and all that sort of thing. For the kids?
Not a bit of it! Oh. no.
And on the Avenue! Is there any chance
of a real kid with a tickler havin' some
fun? Not if a cop sees you first. And
will the cops be on hand? Well, I just
guess they will be. Can you throw flour
at people? Huh! Somebody's sure to think
you're trying to ruin their best clothes.
Slight Compensation, This.
Of course, there is going to be a real
festival at the House of Play for the kids,
and the guests are invited to dress in
costume. That sounds more like it. And
the Business High School Alumni Asso
ciation is to give a ball at the Raleigh
Hotel, with Miss Ethel Shane in charge,
and I suppose there are going to be a
few more real parties where people can
really enjoy themselves. Some people
still know how to have fun. Some conso
lation for a ghost, eh?
Say, you. Wasn't it bad enough to start
that ??safe-and-sane-Fourth" stuff and
stop the kids from shooting off firecrack
ers? We might stand for that because we
know that sometimes people get hurt
with firecrackers. But let the ghost of the
Fourth of July tike care of that And as
! for Christmas, let the ghost of Santa
Claus take care of that. But when it
comes to knockin' out Halloween, this
ghost is going to protest. What's the use
of being a ghost anyway, if you don't
throw a scare into somebody now and
The kids and I are gettin* mad.
Steamer Castle Leave? With Sup?
plies for Army Dredge Dalecarlia.
With coal and supplies for the army
dredge Dalecarlia, working on the im

on the west shore of Chesapeake bay,
the United States army engineers' steam

The engineer office snag boat York has
gone to Aquia creek, Va., where she is
employed in erecting beacons in the
newly dredged channel into that wdter

Owner of Vast Fortune Ex
pires When About to Board
Private Car.
CODY, Wyo.. October 29.?Charles G.
Gates, who Inherited >40.000,000 from hts
father. John VV. Gates, died suddenly
here yesterday of apoplexy. Drs. Moth
ereJi and Williamson and other members
of a hunting party with whom he had
arrived September 25 were at his side
when he expired. He was thirty-seven
years old.
Just as he climbed aboard a private
car that was to bring him to New York
to join his young wife. Gates jovially
"I will be back a year from now. I
like this place. It is the greatest big
game country on the globe and it will
henceforth be my happy hunting ground."
He fell almost as he ceased speaking.
Strenuous efforts to relieve him were of
no avail. His sluggish heart gradually
weakened, and finally failed to respond
to strong stimulative treatment.
In Happy Mood.
Mr. Gates had never been in happier
humor than on his arrival here from the
wilds of the hunting field. Although he
had come to join the Prince of Monaco
and "Buffalo Bill'' Cody in a big-game
expedition, the parties failed to meet.
But he went ahead with his game killing
at the same speed and fury that he did
at all things. The result was the un
wonted exertions weakened his heart,
but be had made the biggest killing on
record here.
"It would be hard to beat that." said
Mr. Gates, as his score of guides and
camp helpers piled the hides and antlers
of ten bull elks, five deer, a grizzly bear
and many other hunting troph.es in a
! baggage car attached to his train.
I Earlier in the day he had expressed a
wish to rejoin his wife, who had been
visiting Mrs. John W. Gates, his mother,
in New York. This was the first separa
tion of any length since their marriage,
in September, 1911. She was Miss Flor
ence Hopwood of Minneapolis, Minn.,
and will inherit the vast fortune left
to him by his father, and which, despite
his spendthrift habits, he is said to have
The body of Mr. Gates was removed
to a bungalow on the ranch the Gates
party had been occupying.
His Health Impaired.
For some time Mr. Gates' health has
not been good. His ambition to live at
"express train speed'' and various ail
ments that required two operations in
i the last three years weakened him. But
he would not admit that he was ailing.
I Even before the death of his father in
11911 Gates had a reputation as a "spend
1 er." He jumped into notice by rushing
' across the country from Yuma, Ariz., to
! oppose a suit for divorce instituted by
his first wife, to whom he had been mar
ried thirteen years. D?plte his protest,
the final decree was granted to her Au
gust 5. 19X1. She later became the wife
of Romeo Miglietta of Florence, Italy,
i and died September 2tt.
Makes Record Bun.
Following that express train jaunt, in
which he broke the long-distance records
by covering 8.000 miles in 74 hours and
1U minutes, Mr. Gates invariably went by
special train everywhere and demanded
|top speed.
I After his second marriage, he began a
j million-dollar home In Minneapolis. It is
not yet completed.
He was a lavish spender and dellgntea
to give huge tips. At a dinner costing
5100 he sometimes gave the waiters a
thousand-dollar bill and told them to
keep the change. While abroad he tipped
In the Paris and London hotels with
twenty-dollar gold pieces.
The body of Mr. Gates will be taken to
New York.
Citizens Determined No Additional
Liquor Dealers Shall Locate
in Suburb.
"Resolved, That the Anacostia Citi
zens' Association go on record as unanl
: mously opposed to the locating of any
; additional saloons in the suburb of
' Anacostia" was the way in which that
. body disposed of the question which
has been agitating the citizens of that
j community for the past week, when it
i was learned that a saloon keeper in
j the city had requested a transfer of his
license to the suburb. The special meet
ing was called by President Charles R.
Burr at the request of several members
for the specific purpose of taking some
action in this regard. There were about
fifty members present, and each voiced
strong opposition to the movement,
and when the vote on the motion was
taken" it was unanimous.
The question was first brought to the
attention of the citizens when a notice
was placed on the vacant property at
the corner of Nichols avenue and Good
Hope road that one Maurice Keane of
206 9th street northweat had applied
for a transfer of his licence from his
oresent address to the Anacostia one.
Immediately the churches became inter
ested. and last Sunday petitions were cir
culated in the various churches opposing
the transfer. The action of the associa
tion last evening places practically every
organisation In the suburb In opposition
to the establishment of any additional
saloons there, and when the excise board
meets next Monday it will find commit
tees from fully ten organizations there to
oppose the transfer.
Dr. James A. Watson presented the mo
tion last evening. He spoke of the ill ef
fects that places of this character have
on any community. J. F- Earnshaw tola
of the effect It would have on the prop*
Sty of the suburb, decreasing its value.
? stated that it was the of the cttt*
sens to make the suburb a residential
of saloons would
