House Committee Plans to
j Give Serious Consideration
to Proposal.
Retirement of superannuated civil serv
ice employes on pensions is to be serious
ly considered by the House committee on
reform of the civil service immediately
after the Christmas recess of Congress,
according to Dr. Llewellyn Jordan, secre
tary of the United States Civil Service
Retirement Association. Dr. Jordan an
nounced at a meeting of his organization
at the Public Library last night that Rep
resentative Godwin of North Carolina,
chairman of the committee, had author
ized him to make the statement.
Addresses were made at the meeting by
Senator Sterling of South Dakota, Rep
resentative Austin of Tennessee. W. E.
Andrews, auditor for the Treasury; Os
car F. Nelson, state factory inspector of
Illinois, and Dr. Jordan. The meeting'was
the first of a series to be held during the
coming winter under the auspices of the
?ame association to stir up interest in the
movement.
Sterling to Take Up Cause.
Senator Sterling, who is a member of
the Senate committee on civil service and
retrenchment, promised that he will take*
the initiative in attempting to get the
committee to take up the question as
soon as possible. He said that there are
still opponents or" the civil service idea
and that the system will have to be de
fended from many assaults.
The necessity of all civil service em
ployes ? ombining on one plan of retire
ment was urged by all the speakers, who
said that the cause had been greatly
weakened by friction among the clerks
themselves. Senator Sterling said that
there is less objection in Congress to the
contributory plan of pensions than to the
"straight"* plan, and that therefore it
would be easier to get the former plan
enacted into law.
Clerks Must Wake Up.
Representative Austin, who was for
merly a I'ost Office Department employe,
declared that the clerks themselves must
"wake up," and that means must be
taken to get the interest and support of
the people out In the states. He said
that. although salaries in the government,
service have been increased but little In
th< last half century, the cost of living
has gone up rapidly.
Mr. Andrews said that Congress should
lirst grant an advance of salaries to
government employes and should then
give a pension plan. He declared that
there ar- few superannuated employes
in the government service, and that the
pension budget therefore would not be
large.

people of the islands, and told of the wide
difference in the characteristics between
the educated Filipino and the savages.
Gambling Is Besetting Sin.

ture at night.

Story of Trouble Between II. S. and

URGED BY LANCASTER
Cites District's Need of Insti
tution Before Northwest
Suburban Association.
The need of a hospital for inebriates
was strongly pointed out by Charles C.
Lancaster, president of the Citizens'
Northwest Suburban Association, at a
meeting of that organization in the Ma
sonic Hall of Tenleytown '.ast evening.
Mr. Lancaster said he hoped the recom
mendation made for such a hospital by
tin* Commissioners would be adopted by
Congress.
'"Addiction to alcoholics is a disease,
not. :t erime," declared Mr. Lancaster.
"These nv>n have to be taken care of,
however." It was pointed out that send
? ng jinebrfates to Occoquan for a month
or two was not sufficient to euro them
and'that within a short time after leav
ing .they were as bad in this respect
as ever. At the hospital, it was said,
a man could be kept until he was entirely
cured and had so strengthened himself
as to be able to resist the temptations
of drink.
Mi. Lancaster named the various rec
omniendatiohs made by the Commission
ers which affected the suburbs in that
part of the city. These recommenda
tions, he said, showed the value of or
ganization and co-operation among men.
sueli as existed in the citizens' associa
tion.
Membership Campaign.
It rtas decided to start a campaign for
new members. To carry out this prop
ositi >n it was decided to have men in

Hurley. P. W. Bangerter, Howard S. Gott.
A. J. Yowell, J. J. Kramer and Edward
P. Goebel.
Several resolutions were adopted. One
; asked that a letter box be placed in As
! bury Park. It was stated that at present
; the residents have to walk half a mile
to find a depository for mail. Another
authorized the president to have a bill
introduced in Congress asking for the ex
tension of Albemarle road from Grant
road to Wisconsin avenue.
Rev. Charles T. Warner, Fred P. Robey

DREDGING OF CHANNEL
SUSPENDED FOR WINTER
Contractors Unwilling to Take
Chance of Being Caught
by a Freeze.
Taking advantage of the provision in
the contract for the deepening of George
town channel that work may be discon
timied during the winter months, the con
tractors have withdrawn the dredge Dan
iel f: om the banking operations in the
vicinity of Alexander Island, in front of
! the Arlington estate. Since the dredge
started work tiiere three weeks ago about
half the entire length of the wall to be
built at this point has been completed,
and it will take but a short time in the
? spring to finish it, so that tho dredging
of the channel, frotn the Highway bridge
to Georgetown, may be started.
While the weather has been open so far,
the contractors, it is stated, were unwili
ing to take any chances on a freeze com
ing and catching the Daniel in the shoal
water in which she was working. The
dredge is to be sent to Newport News to
work there during the winter, as iee sel
dom interferes with work In that vicinity.
When work on the Georgetown channel
is resumed in the spring it will be pushed
with big dredges to completion. As the
estimates call for the removal of 450 000
cubic yards of material, and more may
have to be dug. dredging operations in
the channel will extend over several
months.
