A mass meeting of the Italian residonts of . Washington, to protest against the as persions cast upon their race by John B. Wight. Commissioner or the District, in referring to them as criminals, was held last night in the lodgeroom -ot the Italian Society in Marble Hall. As stated at the meeting the movement had its origin in the reading of The Times account of the proceedings of the meeting of colored people last Sunday aft ernoon. P. A. Radice and two or three ofher Italians of prominence discussed the matter among themselves and took steps to call their countrymen together and to frame a protest against the lan guage used by the Couimiiwioner. S. A. Pessagno was choten chairman of the meeting and A. Chlcea. secretary. The chairman presented a formal address of protest against Commissioner Wight, which was read in English and Italian, and after being discussed at some length was unanimously adopted. The address was as follows: "We, tlie Italian-American residents of Washington, have unanimously decided this day, at a mass meeting, to call the special and urgent attention of the local superior authorities, and, in particular, that of the President of the United States, to the most savage and cruel manner in which we have been treated by Mr. John B. Wight, District Commissioner. This unfortunate and ungrateful man has the audacity to say that "with all kindness, Iwt I state it as a fact, the Italian resi dent in this city are a disgrace to the Capital Weil, dees Mr. Wight know and is he able to distinguish the difference between the Italians, Arabs. Armenians, Greeks, etc.. all of which are called da gos? Is Mr. Wight, with all his kindness and cleverness, trying to judge all the people by figure and dress? . "In the city of Washington there are not SO0, as Mr. Wight stated, but from re liable sources we certify there are at least 2,000 good, honest, and hard-working Ital ian people here; obedient and sincere citi zens, and loyal to the flag of their adopt ed country. Why does he not come out fairly and squarely and tell the truth? Any man with common sense, without any trouble, by examining the criminal rec ords, will easily And out that the Italians sre not by any means inhabiting the pris ons of the District. It is painful to us to say. with all our kindness, that Mr. Wight disgraces himself shamefull be fore the eyes of all the poople of the Dis trict in classing the Italians as criminals. "He s-ays that the Italians are a dis grace to the city. Let us inform the clever gentleman that on the day of the nmlletoMR attack the appointment of Dr. 3. 3.

April C It i3 i understood that two road bills were pass- j el by the Legislature for Prince ueorge ccunty onknon as Senate bill, offered by Senator Peter, of Howard county, cre ating a board of county road commission ers, who shall have charge or all roads and bridges for the county. The law creates three road districts, the first containing Laurel. Vanaville, Bladensburg, Bowie, and Kent election dis tricts: the second Queen Anne. Marlboro. Mel wood. Nottingham, and Aquaaco, and the third- Brandywine, Piscataway, Sur nms.. SpaJding, and Oxen Hill. The terms of office of the commissioners shall begin upon their appointment and qualification and continue until the first Monday iir February in 1902. and until their successors have qualified. At the general election in November. 1901. and at every general election thereafter the le gally qualified voters in each road district shall elect one county road commissioner, who shall be a freeholder and resident of that section of the county, each road com missioner to receive $5 per day when he either attends board meetings or is on read supervision, provided that the aggre gate amount shall not exceed $200 per year for each commissioner. It also pro vides for clerical help not exceeding $200 per year; may also pay all expenses nec essary to the discharge of its duties and also provide each election district with a road machine. It is fair to say that the law provides for $1,000 in salaries ami expenses, which might bs more properly applied to the roads and bridges. The second bill, known as House bill, creates district road commissioners, to be appointed annually by the County Commis sioners, who hhall be qualified voters and freeholders in the respective election dis tricts and who shall serve without com pensation. Two of them shall be selected from the dominant political party In thii county and one from the other party. Be sides, this law does not repeal section 2S9. act 1SS0, chapter 155. which allots to each road district a just proportion of the road tax. The majority of the taxpayers and voters of this section cf Prince George I In favor of the House bill, as it will be a more economical and efficient administra tion of the public road system in the county.
