Ei EL Efc ELELCEEEEEECEECEEEEECEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEECCEEca ' HAS A NEEDLE IN HER BODY Garfiald Hospital Surgeons to Use X Eays for Miss Marshall. .For Two Yours the Needle Uux IJecn IVuiidet'liig Painfully and ibo Cue Uecoino SerlotiH. Tor ttic last two jcars tbe pointed hair of a long steel needle tub been roaming aimlessly through the body of pretty Mibb buan Alice Marshall, and it lb probable ttiat the fir-a practical experiment m this citj with the famous Roentgen X rajb Mm tie liuae at Uarlield Hospital in a da or two to determine the eaet location of the needle. Miss .iuiou.ill was bent to the hospital about .1 -tu o'clock, je-sterday afternoon b banuarj oirk-er 1 rank, at ttic request of 1'olietman Charles II. Uanagan ot the Fourth pretiiiet 'When placed in the am bulance at point- headquarters the joung lady was uuriering intense pain and feared that the Mharp pointed direhcl had, en tered her left lung, ab eer breath t.he drew caused her greatagony. Miss Marshall is a buxom, bright-faced cuiintry lass just eighteen jears or age. She (.amc to Washington aboullhrce months ago from her home in Caroline county. Va., where her lather and mother now lie. Since her aimal here the joung woman has been liing with Mm. Uanagan, at No. 951 E street southwest. Ileioru going to the 1 ospital she told Tlie 1 imes how the unwelcome needle had cotton into her body. "One afternoon, about two jears ago," she said, I was lying on the bed romping with m j liltle brother, lie had a needle in his hand, and in the seutfle it entered deeplj into my left breast. The sudden pain caused nif to push broilitr tMde, anI ip doing so the nced'e win broken off, the pointed end remaining in my llesli It did not Inconvenience me any at first. Mj mother and father, and then the villa go phjbiiijii tried to extract it, but in vain. Finally all traces or the steel thing disap peared and it was, perhaps, six months before I felt one day a sharp pain near m left side, and in a few hours a great swelling appeared there. The spot was poulticed and the swelling disappeared. Since that lime I have been troubled by several similar swellings." Miss Marshall added that this latest at tack is the worst she lias experienced. Her lert breast is swollen badly and every breath she draws feels like a red-hot knile blade being drawn through her lung, and passe 1 down to her left side. The joung lady is anxious to be operated upon so that the source of annoyance may be removed Chief Clerk Sjivester, of the police department, thinks the hospital authorities mav find it necessary to use the penetrating X-ravs in their search for the wandering needle.

Tried to Swim Across the IJasln, Hut Uiw Strength Gave Out Fruit less Efforts to He-More Life. Frederick Taft, aged sixteen, who lied with his parents at 449 First .street north east, was drowned in the Little liasin, near the Baltimore & Ohio Canal, yesterday about 12 30. Young Tait. with a number of companions went in bathing in tiio basin, which isfully a quarter ofa mile above the bathlngbeaeh, and there was considerable aniet when Taft, after swimming across the basin and part of the way back, called for help. The elfort to bwim across the basin and back was too much for the joung lellow and he was drowned in plain sight of his companions before help reached him. Two bojs, Joi-eph Demar and Frank Pugli, made an attempt to save Taft, but they were unsuccessful A colored man ran down to the bathing beach and in formed Pohcen an Philip Browne, of the Fir-,t precinct, who is doing duty there. The policeman quickly donned a bathing sun and jumping into a boat was lowed up the mer by William Warden to the spot where Taft was seen to go down Arter making two dives the officer lo cated the body of Taft and brought him to tlie sunace. The ambulance was sent for and efforts were made to bring the young fellow buck to life, every known remedy being resorted to to bring a pink color to his cheeks and a breath from his lips. The efforts were without avail and the lireless body was taken to the Emergency Hospital, where the physicians tried to restore respiration by artificial process No sign or life was exhibited when the the young mail reached the hospital, but the.phjsicians worked hard to save him The water where Taft was drowned was fifteen feet deep and Policeman Browne in du mgror t he both struck several submerged timbers He showed a good deal of pluck in going the second time after the body in such n dangerous location. The body of the boy was removed at o o clock in the afternoon to the home of the parents, where it was prepared for burial. Blver VIimv Today. The annual excursion or the Germania Maetinerchor to KUer View today -will he one or the most en joj able ever gheu to that charming resort, and will be another ol those pleasant German Sundais that alwajs mark the opening ol the liner lew excision season. In addition to the ..iic-ic'siuig oowung matches, which have always beeu an especial leature of the Maeunerehor excursions, the gentlemen Inning the air.iir in charge have arranged a splendid musical program, consistiinr of the songs and hjmns of the German latherland, which will be exquisitely ren dered by a chorus or sixty riuely tiamed male and lemale oiees, among the,,, some ol the best-known German singers in Washington city. Chris Arth jr 's fine orchestra and band will be he.'nd'iii ontert. The amusements on the ground are all in pcrlect condition, and Captain Randall hopes to have the new "Water Chute" in operation. A laige fence of hands has been employed unon it ,i.,pm the past week, and last night it -was so near ready ror service that it is exj ected those who attend the excursion -will hue the pleasure of seeing the boats go flying down the chute and into the big lake at its foot. The rast steamer Samuel J. Pentz will make three last trips to the " View" today leaving her wharr, foot of Seienth street at 11 a. m., 2.45, and G p. m., and it is expected that this will be one of the iaiKi;sL excursions oi tne season. Those who do not wish to return home on the last boat, which leaves the "View" at 9 p. m., can return on one of the eaiiier trips. The tickets, which are 25 cents, can be had at the wharf. On Tuesday evening next, the Elks wi)l give a complimentary excursion to River Mew and expect to take down a merry crowd of fun lovers. The River View management announces that biciciists who come down from Washincton over the the road will not be excluded from the grounds, but if they wish to return on the boat they will have to pay their lare.

JiMiouae of the Pi-uncut .Method Com pared With the lToiiowed Plan Prof. Powell's Views in Ilempoet to the Printing of the Text llooliH. Hedeniptlou ol Certificate). The District Commissioners are not prc paied, they say, to indorse the bill now berore Congress, proidiiig that tne Bis tiict printing and umdiug be done under Dibtrlct uuspices. The question was submitted to the board for an opinion as early as March 3, by Senator Hansbrough,and since then an in vest igatiou has been unade of the subject, under the direction cu tue Commissioners, the rebult of whicn is an ader&e recom mendation. Tne eominuulcatlou, addressed to Sena tor Haiisirougii, iecuu& that the examina tion or the matter. was necessiniy im perfect and hurried, but in support ot their conclusions they inclose an estimate of the coat of furnishing the equipment necessary to do sati&racturi work, and contrast It with the annual expeudiiuies for printing and binding. The cost ror the work lor 1092, was $11,257; ror 1&93, a total of SI -1,978; for lb91, the sum expended wus 9,UG7, and in lMifi, the work cost $12, 219. For the iirst halt or the current jeai it was $1,928. COST OF ANNUAL KEI'OKT. In these annual amounts there is each j ear included the item paid to the Public 1'iinter lor limiting the annual report or the Commissioners, which has ranged from $1,000 to $585; The coal or a plant with which the -work might be muccc'ssiuu done is estimated at $5(i,700. Tills includes engine, boiler, tpe and other materials, fuel, rent and the pay or the employes lor one jear. This estimate was made by the property clerk or the Distrii l, alter conTerence with borne or the leading printers or tlie city, and the Coiiimibsioneia are of the opinion that the results or the enterprise Avould not be satisractorj irom an economical standpoint "In uddition to the large expense," they say, "which would be entailed by this plant, the Commissioners are or the opinion that there are many weeks in each risc.il j ear during which there would be no print ing required, and when the men and the plant would be ol little use." In tlie course of their linestlgutions, the Commissioners referred the bUbject to Superintendent Powell or thoPnblicSchools, for information and an expression of his views. ilr Powell does not indorse the plan. He says the total cost of the school pi lut ing Tor 189." did not exceed $2,500. -which included the printing of the annual report, and adds that the work is of so little amount that it would not Justify tl.e main tenance of a printing establishment, unless it be the purpose to print the text books Tor the use of the schools, and this he does not regard as at all desirable. EXPENSE TOO GKEAT. "Wherever the printing ot such books by public uuthority has been tried," ilr. Powell sas. "the experience has liceii greater than would have been the purchase of an equal number of bookb in the open market " Prolessor Powell regards the difficulty in making the right kind of books a- the greatest obstacle to the proposition. "The school," he said, "should stand for the latest thought in educational work, and to do this its condition must be one of ad vancement and growth. "The pupar.iitou and revision of books to maintain such a condition would require the seniles ol a standing commission of the highest intellectual and hrcrar character, representing many lineb or thought." This Prof. Powell believes, would be very expensive. The CominisMOtierK returned to Senator McMillan yesterday House bill No. 3(510 "for the reher of the holders of certain District tax certificates." with a recom mendation for favorable action, provided the measure shall K-nnieiifled by the addi tion of a list of certificates presented since the bill was introduced. SUGGEST A PROVISO. They aW recommend the addition of a proviso authorizing the Commissioners to reassess against the lots the taxes in respect to which the sale's, nieniioned were made and tor which the certificates were issued. The sales included In the Commissioners' amendment were all made in 1S75 and covered twentj nine lots. The bill is intended to provide for the redemption or such tax sale certificates issued by the District government as shall be found to hae become invalid or not collectible by reason of the neglect of the government oflieials to cause a reporttof the sale to l.e recorded as required bj law. These certificates are to be redeemed by the issue to the holders of drawback certificates for the several amounts found to be due including interest thereon to the date of the act. MUST HE AMBKICANS. New Law "Will Prevent Licensing of Foreign Eimlneors. For the past six months the engineers of the merchant marine have been working energetically to prevent the licensing or aliens as engineer officers on lxard of American steamships. The House and Sen ate has passed measures to overcome this practice, and the conferees appointed to adjust the differences have agreed upon a report, -which will be submitted to the House on Monday. As It will be reported bv the conreTecs the measure provides that the engineers shall be official! designated as officers; that the employment of aliens after .Tanu iry I. 1897. shall be absolutely prohibit ed; that the continuance of a license shall be Increased to a period of rive jears, and that when ever male and officer, when i barged with an offense before tl.e board of supervising inspectors, shall be per mitted to retain counsel Under the present law the most important vessels comprising the auxiliary naval reserve have aliens m their engine-rooms. The passage or this bill, it is claimed, will do much to provide a naval engineer ing reserve for tune of emergency.as there are fullv 17,000 marine engineers in the United States.
