"Wanderiufters" and others are trained not to enter the large wooded reservation east of the Dalecarlla or reoelvlnc reservoir, north of the Con duit road near the District line, dur ing the.continuance of the war.

The Ileeh t Ca Seventh Street Between E and F, 1 Stirs Rent Bill Controversy, Criticising Senator Pom erene, Despite Ruling: Twice called to order for violation of the rules of the House forbidding members of that body from discussing members of the other branch of Con gress, with the Speaker ruling that his remarks were out of order, Rep resentative Johnson of Kentucky yes terday occupied ten minutes of the time of the House with a further fling at the Senate on the subject of the rent bill He secured the floor as a result of a compromise as to the use of time and proceeded without interruption untile he mentioned Senator Tomerene. whereupon Representative Meeker ob jected and the Speaker ruled as stated. Changing his form of statement, he proceeded until again he lapsed into personal comment, and Mr. Meeker re newed his objection and the Speaker again ruled that Mr. Johnson was out of order. He finished his speech without fur ther interruption anil then asked unanimous consent to extend his re- j marks in the Record, to which Repre sentative Meeker objected and the re quest was denied. Statement Made to House. Mr. Johnson's statement, as it ap pears in the Record, is as follows: "I assume that this entire member ship is famijiar with the status of the anti-profiteering rent bill passed by the House March 12 last. I likewise as sume that all are familiar also with the present barnacled condition of the bill. Therefore I deem it not to be necessary at this time to speak of the bill itself in extenso. but rather of the resolution which was offered by??*1?"' tor Pomerene of Ohio, and which is now pending before the committee. "The resolution?somewhat lengthy in 'whereases'?advises the House that the Senate conferees have been ex cused from further service as such conferees until otherwise ordered by the Senate.' 'Farther service* is good, since none had been rendered, and none seemingly contemplated. "However, prior to this I had been advised through the news columns of the local press that senatorial pass ports were to be handed me and dip lomatic relations severed with the House becau'se? "First. I had made some remarks on the floor of the House which were ac cepted as reflections on a part of the Senate membership; and "Second. That I had violated prece dent by submitting to each of the Sen ate conferees a list of questions eating the probable points of disa greement which would arise when the conferees on the part of the two houses met; and "Third. That 1 had written two let ters to the conferees which, later, the author of the resolution stated, one gentleman would not write to another gentleman. Did Not Say Senators Took Money. "Concerning the first?my remarks on the floor of the House?I shall only say that X confined myself to a state ment of facts without in any way at tempting any conclusions; and I dis claim having said that any member of the Senate had been paid any of the money which Mr. Worthington, by letter, told his 'fellow realtors' had been spent by the National Associa tion of Real Estate Brokers to aid the local association of real estate bro kers in its fight in Congress. "As to the author of the resolution now before us, of him particularly I wish to say that I have never thought for a moment that he got any of the money. "My reason for singling him out for this disclaimer Is not because he, in his remarks before the Senate, read from my speech in the House what I said about the money paid by the real estate brokers in their local fight in Congress, nor because he seemed to construe my remarks to mean that he had been paid a part of that money. My reason for singling out this particular senator for my disclaimer is because It Is my opinion that he is not enthusiastically, at least, in sympathy with the tenant class in the legislative controversy now going on. This senator enjoys the reputation of being capable of thinking intricately and accurately; and. at the same time, his reputation for being able to express his thoughts in writing Is Just as enviable. In fact, he Is conceded to be a man of very much ability. Equal Bight to Viewpoints. "Therefore, when I express the opinion that his sympathies are not with the tenant class I do bo from as careful and as thoughtful a digestion of what he has written on the sub ject as. by comparison, my poor abili ties will permit. Broadly stated, not sympathising with the tenant class when in controversy with the land lord class Is no legal offense. For that lack of sympathy with the ten ant class which I accord or impute to him he has perfect right My right not to be in sympathy with the land lord class is no greater than is his to be .with them, "I freely admit that under present conditions I am a partisan in the cause of the tenant. If I were to say that he is a partisan on the other side of the question, I would impute to Tiim nothing that I do not assume tor myself. With all of a plentiful energy 1 have enlisted with the ten ant in the fight of which Mr. Wor thington wrote his 'fellow realtors.' "In drafting a bill for the relief of the tenant in his present extremity I gave it all the effort and thought of which I am capable. If what I wrote will not accomplish that end, neither the tenant nor I have yet discov ered the failure. "On the other hand, if the amend ment known as the Pomerene bill protects the tenant from extortion, the discovery has been made only by the landlords and its author. "Since the appearance of the Pom erene bill 1 have been constrained to believe that in the exercise of my legislative efforts in behalf of the tenant class in the District of Colum bia I had to meet the opposition of the able author of that paper, because his seeming sympathies have been for ther landlord class. I use the expres sion 'seeming' sympathies; while if his attitude Is to be determined by the bill bearing his name J may safely omit that word, Witnesses for Each Other, ^ "Heretofore I have said, and I now repeat my opinion, that another can express himself on paper most ac curately indeed. In doing it he has written (hat to whic^ the tenant class and their friends object, and that which the landlords and their supporters approve. But that is his right. Just as it is mine to write that which is to the Interest of the tenant class. "The distinguished personage of whom I will speak will agree, I am sure, that the landlords gave me none of the money of which Mr. Worthington wrote his 'fellow real tors,' and. Just as readily and without any sort of qualification, I shall agre* with him that they gave him none. The attitude of each of us to ward the bill, as a matter of course, was known to those who had the monty to spend in the local fight in Congress. If both he and I get some of the money?and each of us is a good witness, one for the other, that neither got any of it?it did not alter or change the views of either."
