Judgej Miller Lectures the Acquitted

rinln Talk to the Jury Thnt Let

of Convictions.
Tin very terry. Amy. that I have to
send you to ja:l by ourselt anil let thee
accomplices or jours who are much big
ger criminals and consequently much worm
go scot free," said Judge Miller late yes
terday afternoon when tin- police court
jury had been wrestling with ttin-p policy
cases tor about fo lr hours and had returned
three crdicU of "not guilty."
John Itidgley, Sum Blue and Sarah Clin
ley, all colored, had been tried for pro
moting policy. Amy Frazer.a colored run
ner, was arrested last Monday with sev
eral "books" belonging to the urious
defendants, and six. dollars and a half in
She admitted on the stand fiat she had

"Mousey Itldglej'a shop In the Division,
anil from Sam Blue's and Sarah Chislcj's
David Burrows, who keeps a dairy on
the Tenlejtown road, and mtvcs milk to
It icicle 's luucli-ruom, testified that he
had been in the liahit of leaving his plajs
at Itldgley's luuch-room whence some
body, lie did not know who, collected the,m
und carried them across the river.
All of the defendants, however, swore
that the plays they had given Annie
Ffazcr were their Individual plajs and that
they never wrote policy and did not know
how it was done. Not one of them had
ever seen a bone pencil nor a hlack sheet
in their lives, and didn't know a "cue
row" from the ten commandments.
The Jury Lellevidlhi' defendant in pref
erence to the other witnesses and returned
verdicts or not guilty In every rase.
Judge Miller did not like it at all. Amy
Frazer, the runner, had pleaded guilty and
had been held for a government witness.
She gave her testimony reluctantly nnd
shielded the writers, all she knew how,
but she hcri-elf had pleaded guilty nnd
there waMit.thing tu do lint send-lier down
Beforetloslng the ran-, however, the Judge
delivered his opinion to the Jury.
"It has come to such a pan.," said he,
"that it is neit to irr.pcfsil.le to convkt
any of the iniportnntlaw-breakers who are
conducting thiscrime-lireeiling game. When
1 first came to this bench several Jcar6
ago policy was being run openly and
hundreds of people were implojed bj the
"Hooks, as they called thwn. were made
by the writers in the shops all over the
city nnd sent across the river or taken
by the writers themnlvcs, and when u
man wascaptured there was some evidence
on wlrcli to convict the ptole who em
plojed him.
"But since they have lieen giving jail
sen'ences for promoting the game, the big
fish have all run under the rocks and now
we can only get those poor ignorant
creatines tliat'thcj employ to run the
gauniletforthem. The wrlu rsh.ive stopped
making liooks, and after they collect their
plajs frrin the poor people who are spend
ing their last dime or mckle on this crim
inal swindling scheme, ihey make them up
at this cabalistic form they are using now
anil send them out by some pi or mKguiui d
creature whose capture and conviction
does not matter to them or auone lse.
"I am not saing this to rcllllei.t on our
police officers, n ho are doing the ln'Stthey
can under the circumstances; nor do I wish
In lie hard upon the jury, tthodoiiut under
stand theinner worklngsof this Ini'-lui'ss.
"But I do wih we ro'ild get some compe
tent expert to come here and explain the
workings of the game to the jury so that
they would be nlile to understand and
realize what harm Is being done. These
three people who are being acquitted ure
all old offenders and ougiit to be going down
in the same van with this Amy Frazer.
Thirty days In her case!"
"Yes," added District Attorney Mul
lowney, "I suppose there will tn- twenty
new writers start In business tomorrow as
the result of these three acquittals, and I
can't say that I should blame them."
And the Jury went out thinking.
Jdorjrnn Lewis Wants Ills Contract
with StapleM Itenclnded.
Col. Oreo G. Staples, the former proprietor
of Willard's Hotel, was made the defendant
last evening In a suit filed agninst him by
Mr. Morgan D. Lewis, the present lessee of
the hotel property. The bill was filed by
Attornejs Worthlugton and Vale and other
defendants named arc Henry Wise Garnet!
and John H. Lamer.
Mr. Lewis desires to have rescinded a
contract for the purchase or the furniture
of Willard's Hotel, which he claims was
purchased under certain misrepresentations
on the part of Col. Btnples. Hy the con
tract made between Mr. Lewis and Col
Staples tlie former was to lease the hold
and purchase for $C0,00U the furniture
and provlsliuis of the property. February
23, 18115, a deed or trust was executed By
the plaintiff to Harnett nnd Larncr lo se
cure the p i.vment or the chattels.
Mr. Lewis alleges that the contract for
the purchase of the ninten.il In question at
the figure named was the result of an as
surance of Col. Staple's 'as to the public
patronage of lic hotel.
Mr. Lewis claims that the colonel ex
aggerated this patronage, and represented
that from October, 18S-, to October, 181)2,
inclusive, about $4-2, lso had been made
clear, and that the average a vear was
$54,G82. From October, 1892, to Octotier,
1803, the net profits were given as
$46,20:!. l, and that his worst )ear, from
1893 to 18JM, he realrcd $27,248.04-,
while the gross receipts for the last named
period amounted to $1211,578.87. Mr.
Lewis says Col. Staples showed figures to
support these statements, also certain state
ments as to supplies, which the plaintirf
Bays was greatly exaggerated.
Within the past month Mr. Lewis claims
to have become aware of the fact that
he was losing money and Instituted an
Inquiry, but could get no exact informa
tion as to the former patronage of the
The suit filed asked for an accounting
and an injunction to restrain Col. Staples
from prosecuting a suit filed by the latter
for an attachment for rent alleged to be
due on the lease under the contract men
tioned. Mr. Lewis asks that his. suit be
decided first. Judge Hagncr granted a
rule to show cause by the "nth of this
mouth why a restraining order should not
Iloiine to Jler nauiihter.

Columbia Heights Citizens Settle the
D Street Fight.
Pretddent Dunlop Iksuoh Cards En
titling the Holder to Transfer at
Fourteenth and XJ Streets Citi
zens Are Congratulating Them
selves on the Concession.
There will be great Joy among the ten or
fifteen thousand people on the heights
north of U street this morning, when they
read of the new regulations affecting trans
fers from thu Fourteenth street line to the
11 street line
Incidentally they may all sleep a half
hour longer instead of heretofore rising
at an unholy hour of the morning to make
the trip around the quadrilateral to reach
nearby points on Seventh strict, such as
schools, business offices nnd markets.
The new regulations Kent Inhi effect") i
terclay afternoon after a long agitation
between the Capital TraitionCompany and
the Columbia Heights Citizens' .Associa
tion. Committees and committees tunc
'died on the otticers of the association
In vain for a long time, but a recent refer
ein v or the mutter to the directors had thc
desired result.
Qu the order of President Dunlop, of the
company, personal cards will be Issued to
those who are interested. The card reads:
"This entitles on presentation
oT proper transfer on the U street division
of the C. T. Co. to another tr.insrer. Not
A person can now come from Mt. 1'leas
aut, get a transfer at Fourteenth and U
stre-'ts, proceed to Seventh and U,and there
get another transfer, lfcrfi re this, to reach
points on Seventh streets, it would be
necessary to make the tour or the city.
The first card was issued jesterday after
noon to Mr. M. A. Bellinger, I lie president
or the Columnia Heights Asvul.ttiou
Talking about the cause of congratulation
to the citizens of the heights nnd the north
ern suburbs generally, Mr. Ilnlllnger said;
"We have won our fight. It has been a
long one but we won it in the end. You
see that heretofore the Capital Traction
Company has been a little bit partial to
the people living west of Fourteenth and
U streets. Any person could take the ears
west of Fourteenth street and might ride
to Fourteenth nnd U, transfer to the
Fourteenth street line, go down to Seventh
and Pennsyvlnnia avenue, transfer up
Seventh 6treet to u street, and thence
transfer at Sevi nth and U streets and go
on out the U street and Chevy Chase line
as far as the District line, or the passenger
could start as before and go to Seventh
street, then down Seventh to l'ennsjl
vania avenue, then with l'enns)lvnnla
avenue nnd Fourteenth street to Four
teenth and U streets, and then transfer
out on the Chevy Chase line, and all on
one fare.
"A resident of Columbia Heights could
not come down Fourteenth street to l!
nnd then cross on U street to Seventh
street, and then go down Seventh street
without pa)lng two fares. Nor could we
take the cars on Seventh street and go
north to U street, then transfer to
Fourteenth street, and then trnnsfir out
to Columbia Heights or Mount Pleasant
without paving two fares.
"This we believed to be wrong. It is
true we could get to our destination by
going around by Pennsylvania avenue und
Seventh street, but it took us too long to"
make the trip. Our citizens hare been
smarting under this condition of things
for a )ear or two and our association has
from time to lime referred the subject
to committees to have a dif ferentv sy stiin
of transfers adopted.
"At our meeting held In October the
old committee reported that it could do
nothing with the traction company.
"The committee was discharged, and at
our request it was referred to the ex
ecutive committee.
"We look it up at once with Mr. Dunlop
of the traction company, and with the
result th.it today Mr. Dunlop has had
cards isued, by which the holder can go
from any point In Columbia Heights to
any point on Seventh street, or the re
erse, on one fare, and mav cross at I
street if the passenger dc-ires.
"These cards can be had on application at
the office of the traction company.
"It is only Just to Mr. Dunlop and his
company to say thnt the rule formerly es
tablished was to prevent persons from
riding 'round the circle.' "
Health Officer lnvetiitaten the
Scarlet Fever CnsiM.
Dr. W. C. Fowler, of the health office,
who made an inspection of two dairy
farms in Maryland, as heretofore noted
In The Times, suspected of having occa
sioned several caes of scarlet fever
through the sale in the city of Infected
nulk, has leturned and submitted his
report to Dr. Woodward.
One of the two dairies is that of W. II.
Michael, at Lime Kiln, Md , the other
that of Thomas L Holmes, at Randolph,
Md. While, from the Investigation made,
It cannot bo conclusively shown that the
fever originated there, the permits issued
to each of the parties named will be
revoked, on the grounds that the premises
wcro not cleanly, nor were they otherwise
maintained according to the regulations
prescrllwd by the health department under
the milk law.
Neither farm will be restored to the
permitted list until they arc put in thor
ough order, in all respects conforming
to the requirements.
In discussing the matter yesterday. Dr.
Woodward again referred to the want
of funds for the proper enforcement of
the law. The two cases mentioned, lie
thought, emphasized the need of an ap
prlntion to pay inspectors to visit dairy
farms beyond the District lines.
The conditions found to exist at the two
places visited by Dr. Towler are not
tolerated locally, but there is no protec
tion for District citizens against the
Mar)land and Virginia establishments,
since they cannot be kept under surveil
lance. Dr. Woodward Wants a sufficient force
of Inspectors to enable them to maintain
the same supervision of those outside
who sell milk in the District as Is had of
the local dairies and dealers.

Coramlhsloners Direct Disburse
ments on Stevens School Contract.
The Commissioners yesterday directed
Auditor Petty to'dlsburse so much of the
money due Contractor Cabell on the con
struction of the Stevens school building
as may be'necessary to pay the men who
were emplo)ed under the subcontractor,
W. H. Johnson.
Upon a statement mnde by the auditor
it apiiears that the amounts due Johnson's
employes aggregated about $G4G. Mr.
Cabell consented to the pa yrnent of $647.48,
but Insisted that the remainder, embracing
the several sums due Johnson, and his two
brothers, should be eliminated.
Johnson agreed as to himself, but de
manded that his brothers should be paid, as
they earned the money by day's labor, as
the others did. In"tbts the auditor agrees
with him, and the' distribution will, there
fore. Include the two brothers. Unless Mr.
Cabell relents the subcontractor will lote
the amount due hlnu about $45.
The payments to the laborers are to be
made from a fund withheld from Cabell, un
der the rule, upon the contract price for
construction. He ivrts unable to complete
the building and this District had to take
it off his hands.
Supreme Courtt to Test the? Utah
The Supreme Court ot the United States
has been called upon to determine the con
stitutionality of the law passed by the
Utah legislature, llinltlng to eight hours
a day's work In am Underground mine In
that 'State.
Tho statute provides that except In case
of emergency, where life or property Is at
stake, no one shall work more than eight
hours a day In an underground mine, and
that no one shall employ a man to do so.
Albert F. Holdcn was convicted and
fined by a Justice of the peace In Salt Luke
county for lolatlng the law, In the em
ployment or a miner, who engngedto work
ten hours a day. He sought relief from

Will Ask the President to Belease
tho Elchelbergrer Brothers.
The friends or William and Albert Eichel
berger, sentenced from a District court a
3 car or two ago for a term of five and
seven years, respectively, for the killing
ot Henry J. Becker, are circulating a petl
tlon.to the President, asking for their par
don. It will be remembered that the t wo Eichel
bergers were alleged to have assaulted
Becker in July, 1894, for some imputation
cast upon their motherand for other causes.
It is claimed In their behalf that the as
sault was not p remeditated, and that no
weapons were used. The claim Is also
made that the provocation was verv great.
Upon the advice of their lawyers the
brothers pleaded guilty to manslaughter,
as there was strong-evidence that Becker
came to his death at their hands, nnd on
this account the extenuating circumstances
were not brought out.
It is said that Albert has been In very
poor health Tor the past year. It is be
lieved by the relatives and friends that
the President will receive with favor a
plea Tor the pardon ot the two, or. If not
that, at least for a reduction of the term
for which they were sentenced.
