Officer Stewart Illttcn and Kicked by
an OfoMreperoiiH Scgriii
Policeman Slcwart.oflheElghtliprcclnct,
had a hard fight with a prisoner List
night. He attempted to arrest a negro for
profanity at the comer ot Fourth and T
streets northwest. The negro was with a
wouiiu, also colored, and the couple had
taken possession of the side walk.
Officer Stewart placed tnc nun under
arrest and started for the box to call the
wagon, but had gone only a few ste-p",
when his prisoner turned ami dealt him a
clinging blow in tlie face. Tney clinched
and for ten minutes the right was terrlfic.
The negro used hands, feet, and teeth, and
at last kicked the plucky officer in tlie
stomach, as they lay sprawling on tho
ja ement and broke away. '
Stewart stsggerrd to li If- fret and gave
chase. He fired two shuts In the air to
frighten the fugitive, but the negro knew
who was chasing him and ;ok his chance.
At the corner nf U and Fifth streets he
ran into the arms of Special Officer KIrby
whom he struck and was in turn struck
wild n billy and knocked down. He was
11 1 en secured and taken to the station, and
rare his name as John V. Johnston, but re
fused his address.
The police say that lie Is known to them
is an ugly and desperate customer, and un
less fearing arrest for some larger crime
would not have made such a resistance.

Tlie citizens of Washington win proti
ably have the privilege of the billot to
morrow for tlie first time since all things
and all n.cn wore appointed" for the Dis
trict of Columbia bj the higher ikiwcts.
It is expected that The Time' bond bill
ballot boxes will be In position then,
and the next thing to do is to fill them
with ballots, MH-ai, a time, aud onlj one
from eai h voter.
The oiilj returning binrd in this kind of
election will be the gentlemen who have
kindl i-onsenled to net as managers of
election Ac-cording to" the usual method
of lalcdlation, there ought to lie In Wash
ington about 50,000 Qualified voters on
the simple, manhood qualification. Sup
posing that onl 2r,000 residents are
property-holders, that number will at
least have a direi l Interest in the question
to lie tolved bv the b.d'ot.
Ah to women voting, thire Is e-ertalnly
"nothing In the nature of the question"
'submitted to debar them from voting If
they own property, or arc mulcted annually
In any kind of taxation that might be ap
plied to the payment of the Interest on tlie
multiplied millions or lionds about which
the lobbyists are talki-ig so glibly. One
thing Is certain, and that Is that the vote
will lie big enough to make legislators
pause to consider what they will say.
The current benefit of any work, whether
of sewers orflrcet extension, would natu
rally lie to thedaylaliorerson such works.
ThH is llic argument, or at least one of the
arguments, urged In ami out of season by
tlie Commissioners and the Senate aud
House committees who were driving the
bill ill rough Congress. The House com
mittee was so mindful f) of the necessities
of the labor problem In the bond bin issue
that it said:
"Whatever doubt thcro may be as to the
propriety of the government undertaking to
provide for the people as a matter of gen
eral policy, there can be no quest ion in the
opinion of the Commissioners and of this
committee as to tnc vvisuoin oi uoing worn
of such Importance and pressing necessity
as that contemplated by the bill at a time
when the incidental benefit to the uncra
plojcd would be greater than ever before."
It is evident to, the worklngmcn of the
District that If the work Is to be com
menced and rushed, as the bill urges, the
most part of it will be done in a short
time, ami to produce that result the number
of clay laborers in the District will be but
a small proportion of the whole number
employed. On the contrary. It Is argued
that should the work be done other than
in this spasmmllc fashion there- will be
a long period during which local labor
could be employed, and there does not
appear to be any hurry whatever unless
it is proposed that only those now in
office will be entitled to marble monuments
on the completion nf the work.
The advocates of haste have been con
founded by their own arguments as
good reasons why there should be no hate.
When Assessor Trimble's report was used
by the committee It showed that within
the last three years property In the county
had Increased 7i per cent, and In the
jears from 1S94 tp 1894 the Increase In
the assessments was simply marve-Ious,
ami all this without a bond or sewer bill.
The following table from the assessor's
books will show conclusively how salts

down Virginia was In earnest in this
fight against crime, and If gambling was
not crushed in Alexandria county it would
be liecause the power of the lawless ele
ment In that county was mightier than the
power ot the grand old commonwealth of
These dens of vice would be raided and
their proprietors and such patrons as might
lie caught there would be arrested and
dealt with aB severely as the law would
permit- It would be useless for this class
to pleadfor mercy. They had been warned
repeatedly, aud now that the law was
closing In on them they must meet the
fate which they have so long defied.
It would be but the question of a tow
days. Detective Baldwin thought, when
Rossljn and Jackson City would be puri
fied by the police. The citizens of those
places would either have to change their
business or leave the State. No trifling
was to be indulged in. The present at
tack on the gamblers was not in the nature
nif a spurt. It was not a spasm of good
ness which had attacked the government
of Virginia.
The Governor had thought tlie matter
over calmly and beriously Tor a long time,
in fact ever since The Times began lis
famous crusade against the lawlessness
if that region ot the State, and he had
reached a conclusion which practically
settled the matter. The gambler must
go. It-made no difference whether they
played poker, faro, keno, crap, or policy.
To play any of these games for money
was a violation f the law aud it was tlie
determination of the law officers of tlie
State to do their doty. After Jackson
City and Rosglyn had been raided awav;
after they had ceased to be; after the
leading industry of that part of Virginia
lud been destroyed, the law would walch
with Its argus eye to see that there should
be no recurrence of the vice. If Ihe gam
blers felt that they were to be let off Willi
tines, and that the prosecution of the
war of reform would then slack up, they
were mightily wrong.
Detective Baldwin intimated that if any
gambling joints were in operation in the
city of Alexandria, they should beware,
liec-ms.' the Governor did not Intend to
split hairs or draw lines between Jackson
City, Rosslyn, Alexandria or any other
place in that part of Virginia where the
anil-gambling law was viokited.
The proprietors of the various poker
rooms and other remits In Alexandria
city, are feeling considerable alarm and
just, now are asking a good many rres
