Supt. Stevens' Suggestions Re
specting Its Future.
More Tban Twenty-nine Thousand
Bathers Itej;li.tered Increase- In
Number ot Lady Patrons Nuis
ances Pointed Out Policemen
Needed. All the Year.
Superintendent Stevens, of the bathing
beach, has snbmltted his annual report to
the Commissioners, In which, among other
things, he says:
"The beach was opened toi the"pbbllc
June 8, and will close September 22. In
the three months already past, 29,1 00 bath
ers bavert'gisteredontnebeachbooks.
"One death hasTiccurred at the beach this
year, that or Carlton Snell, who died of
heart disease while swimming. So far in
the history of the bathing beach there has
never beenbutone drowning ofa registered
bather, thut of young Kellb, three years
Alter a reference to the tournament if
August 21, and the award of medals, the
superintendent says:
"A gratifying fact to state Is that the
number of lady bathers is continually In
creasing. All who come once come again
and often.
"It becomes my painful duty to report
a source of annoyance to ladles. George
Tasker asked my permission to rent boats
near tbebeach. Knowing that, If properly
conducted, this would accommodate a por
tion of the public, I consented for him to
make a trial, but it soun proved to be very
"He rented boats at a very low price,
and boys would hire them and go into the
water naked within sight but beyond
Jurisdiction of the beach. His -wharf float
Is directly beside the ladies premises, and
crowd3 of low ybaraelers often gather there
and make objectionable remarks.
"I have repeatedly notified Tasker to
move away, and such notice hasbcen served
on him by government officials, but? with
the impudence characteristic ot squatters,
he defies all authority."
The superintendent Is of the opinion that
the three policemen granted for the beach by
Congress nearly three years ago, at Major
Moore's solicitation, should be kept In
charge of the beach and its neighborhood
all the year. '1
The superintendent renews his recom
mendation ot a pool syttem, as the only
means of securing reasonaoie sareiy a
broad bathing area and water always at
one depth and although all things are
not yet ready for occupancy of the Inner
basin, certain plans are maturing -which
render Immediate action necessary, if the
ideal spot is to be secured.
The superintendent makes the following
recommendations: That rules be made to
preserve order, not only at the beach but la
the eurroundlngneighborhood;that a police
boat bo located on the line of Seventeenth
street nnd .the shore fronting on the Poto
mac and extending from B street north to D
street south; that no person eball be per
mitted to Tent boats or other water ap
pliances within one hundred yards of the
bathing- beach without the written conEent
of the superintendent; that a telephone,
connecting with the city system, be located
at the beach; that whatever shall be deemed
Indecent exposure In daytime- shall be
adjudged as such If comraltteed at any time
upon the bathing beach or within fifty feet
of any public highway or resort.
Also that tke Commissioners shall strong
ly recommend to the proper authorities
the Immediate burial of the Seventeenth
street sewer; that the "little basin" re
ferred to In his report be preserved- that
Congress be asked to exchange the grant of
the present bathing beach for a grant of the
llttlo basin and sufficient grounds around
It for driveways, and that an appropriation
of $10,000 be asked for the expense of re
moval to the new premises and to fit up the
latter In permanent shape.
Mass of Penance to lie Sung Friday"
A unique service will be held In all
tho Catholic churches ot this city on Friday
morning. It will be a mass of penance
and expiation, and will be said In accord
ance with the following letter, which has
been reccIveU by every parish priest in
the city:
Cardinal's Residence,
Baltimore, lid., Sept. 10, 1S05.
Dear Rev. Father:
On September 20 the Italian government
will celebrate the twenty-fifth celebration
ot the annexation of the Roman provinces
to the kingdom of Italy. While public
demonstrations arc thus being carried on
In memory of this occupation of what had
for centuries been papal dominions, the
Holy See desires that the faithtul children
it the church throughout the world should
unite in praying for the freedom and Inde
pendence -of the Tope.
Tou are therefore requested to publicly
recite on that day in your church, at tlie
mass, which Is most fully attended, the
litany ot the saints, praying, according to
the intentions of tbe sovereign pontiff,
that Providence may soon vouchsafe to
grant to tho church and her vi-lble head
the liberty so necessary for the exercise of
their divine mission. Faithfully yours,
At St. Aloysius Church the services will
bo very solemn, the vestments being purple
and tbo litany will bo chanted by the full
vested choir. At' St. Matthew's, being
the diplomatic church of the city, it will
be a more quiet affair. The Italian am
bassador, Baron Fava, and his family attend
St. Matthew's, also all the members ot
the legation who arc Catholics. A solem
nity ot any note would not bo very cour
teous to those sojourners on our shores
who are necessarily in sympathy with King
Humbert's celebration.
Officers and Soldiers Get TUelr Pay
for Jnne From Him.
Owing to a deficiency in the appropriation
for the pay of tho Army for tbe fiscal year
ending Juno 30 last, certain off icers and a
number of enlisted men did not receive their
pay for the month of Juno, tbe last in tbe
year. Secretary Lamont interested himself
In the matter.
Be has now directed the paymaster gen
eral to transfer certain unexpended bal
ancles and to pay tho enlisted men. Of
ficers will receive their pay on properly
certified checks on the National Bank of
New York city.
The later payments, it Is thought, will
probably be met by advances from the
Secretary's private account, to be refunded
s soon as a deficiency bill, making good
a year's shortage, can be passed by Congress.
