THE WASHINGTON TIMES, SUNDAY, AUGUST 24, 1919.
I WALES READY FOR BARRAGE "IIS" QUEBEC, Aug. 24. By request or the Prince of "Wales, the American newspaper correspondents covering the Toyal trip -were presented to him at the Citadel. The prince laid aside dignity and restraint and showed himself a good fellow. In this first talk with the writers, the prince displayed a sense of humor that none suspected he possessed. Though the interview was informal, he showed no hesitancy in accepting Questions and answering them with out long cogitation. Stepping to the group of New York newspaper men In the party the prince said. "I am" glad that the Xew York newspapers are represented and I hope to see you often on the tour." Asked when ne expected to he In New York, he replied: "Probably about November 10. I sail from there to England, you know. My stay in the United States will be onei. i am afraid, but I look forward to it eagerly." Assured of a splendid reception by New York, the prince said: "New York docs things In a big "way, doesn't it?" . Turning to a movie photographer, the prince said: "You men have been getting some close-ups. It will be very interesting for me to see them In the films, you know, and see how bad you really are." In the laugh that followed some body suggested: "You will see yourself as good as you are." The prince smiled. "No, I'll see myself as bad as I am." Reminded that In New York he would face a volley of cameras every inch of the way, he replied: "Yes, I expect an intensive barrage there.'' The reception over, the prince turn ed away with a wave of the nand and smiled boyishly: "Well, I'll see you all again later." His functions yesterday included a visit to the shrine of St. Anne de Beaupre. where he saw crutches left behind by cripples who had been bene fited at the famous shrine. In the afternoon he spent an hour on a pri vate golf course. After divine service this morning the prince will return to the Citadel for luncheon and in the early after noon will motor to St. Martins Junc tion, half way to Montreal. There he will board the special royal train that is to carry him through the remainder pf his Canadian tour. The first stop will be Toronto, where he will pass tomorrow and Tuesday. He will be gin a three-day stay in Ottawa Wed- nesday. 'k The battle cruiser Renown, flagship of the prince's squadron, will sail -soon for South America. k thence to England. The Dauntless and Dragon, escorting cruisers, will also sail for England in several days. AH three are now at Quebec. They will all re turn to America in November to take the prince from New York.

Xnmeronn( complaints of this wing of the police department ytIII be gone Into by the committee. The com mittee mill ask for documentary evidence to ahevr the Justification of a vroman's bureau. Technically, the committee holds, the entire department could be made up of Tromen, since no distinction as to sex Is made In the law creating the department. It Is probable that the committee, if convinced that the woman's bureau should continue to live, will ask for an amendment to the law to fix a limit on the number of women in the department. District Finances. 7 The finances of the District government. This Inquiry will go through the varions department of the District goiernracnt, par ticularly as regards the fiscal re lation between the District and Federal governments. This will not be an Inquiry Into the half-and-half plan, bat into the meth ods of the auditor in handling moneys. The committee has been Informed that due to a certain method in vogue the United States Treasury I annually falling to receive a considerable sum. Thl, however, is a question of book keeping and has no semblance of Improper conduct on the part of any official. S The recent rare riots in the District. Another subcommittee of the House District Committee may be named to conduct an in quiry Into the race riots, although the Gould committee would be clothed Tilth that authority. D. C MAKKKT unu-Aii. 9 The Washington Market Company. This company, under Its charter, pays Into the District a certain sum annually, which the law says should be diverted to charity. The committee villi de termine whether this course is being followed. 10 Public utilities. An Inves tigation will be made of several plans proposed to solve the street railway problems of the District. A-mong the plans to be considered will be a merger of the two street railway companies here, their purchase outright by the Govern ment, to be rc-lcased to private enterprise. II Tost of living in the Dis trict. Members of the committee expect to go thoroughly Into the matter of food, fuel, feed, rai ment, and rents. An amendment to the Mapcs resolution authorizes such an Inquiry. IS A general salary investiga tion. The committee anticipates that the inquiry will lead to an Investigation of salaries of all employes of the District govern ment. The members, houever, promise to flrtt make provision for the Police and Fire Departments before considering salary In creases for any other depart ments. "I want It understood that the com mittee is not out to get' anv official or has a prearranged p!an to disrupt J any branch or bureau of the District V WHAT 11 E 10 kX government," Chairman Gould, of the subcommittee said, discussing- the proposed inquiry. Agree on Increase. "There is only one thing we are agreed on and that is an increase in pay for members of the police de partment. "Our best efforts will be used in taking up the slack, if there is any, in certain branches of the District government. We want to co-operate with the officials in perfecting a more efficient system. "We will not conduct a prosecu tion. It will be an Inquiry. This is the seat of the national govern ment; Congress annually appropri ates millions of dollars for its up keep; Congress wants light on how it is expended and 'this committee has been delegated to ascertain the I facts for the guidance of the entire hody."- Members of Congress, both branches, have heard so- many re ports, pro and con, of the women's bureau, a branch of the police de partment, that the committee will make a- thorough investigation of that branch. "According to jibe construction now placed on the law, it would be pos sible to do away with men on the po lice force and substitute women," says Mr. Gould. "It appears that because the law does not make any distinction as to sex. the officials in charge have taken the position that women may be put on the force if men are not available. Kavor Amendment. "There should be an amendment that would place a limit on the num ber of women in the department, if the women's bureau is to be con tinued in service." Members of the subcommittee and. in fact, many other members of the House, do not take kindly to the activities of the legislative committee of the City Policemen's Union. They hold that it is unnecessary for the policement to resort to such tactics to get justico at the hands of Con gress. "One member of the legislative committee has taken it upon himself to pay me a few calls," said Chair man Gould. "I intend to find out. when the investigation begins, whether he is doing his lobbing while on tour of duty or whether on his own time. I do not want tho police men to get the mistaken idea that such a policy is necessary. They can rest assured that we will do the very best wo can by them. "Up to the present time, no formal request for an increase in salary has been made by members of the Fire Liepartment, but we have anticipated such a move and are prepared to In clude that question in our inquiry. "1 am unable to understand why there are no vacancies in the fire de partment that pas a smaller salary than the Police iJepurtment, while there are approximately eighty va cancies in the latter department. Something "Wrong." "There must be something wrong somewhere, and the committee in tends to find out what it is." Commissioner Louis Brownlow ex plains that the examinations for ap pointment to places in he Fire De partment is not so ngiu as those In condition that is interesting Chairman Gould. It would be an ea?y matter. Mr. Brownlow says, to fill up the ranks of the Police Department to its full quota of S99. There are plenty of applicants, but the investigation of many of the men shows they are not men of the high type of charac ter that the Police Department de mands, he says. Chairman Gould will confer tomor row with Senator Calder. chairman of a subcommittee of the Senate Dis trict of Columbia Committee, which ha b-cn named to investigate the police and other departments of the Distiict government May Make Joint Probe. It i3 probable that out of that con ference will come an agreement for a joint investigation by the subcommit tees of the Senate and House. The Mapes resolution, authorizing the iijquiry, is so worded as to pro vide for any emergencies. No mat ter what new angle may develop in the courso of the general inquiry, the resolution will give tho subcommit tees authority to investigate it at length. Commissioner Brownlow, president of the District Commission, and Major Pullman have volunteered their serv ices to the subcommittee arid an nounced they will welcome a full and complete inquiry, i Copyright. 1013.

"I am notified by Major Roff htat two troops of cavalry crossed the border tft 4 o'clock this morning to carry out the order. Colonel Grover, chief -of staff of the district, is at and in touch with them." One troop of cavalry crossed the Rio Grande at Fabens and the other near Fort Hancock. Three Texas rangers from Camp Stevens accom panied the troops from Fabens.' Re ports that contact had been gained with the thieves and fighting had taken place were not confirmed by military headquarters. Patrol Is Reinforced. , One battalion of the Nineteenth In fantry was sent from Fort Bliss to re-enforce the patrol between San Klizario and Fabens. A dispatch to the sheriff's ofTiee here told of the raid and the theft of twelve horses yesterday afternoon. General Howzer, a native Texan, medal of honor veteran, will take command of the El Paso district upon his arrival from overseas. He was former commander here, and was dis tinguished for his cavalry leadership in the chase after Pancho Villa In Western Chihuahua three years ago. MEXICO CITY. Aug. 24. President Carranza was given a vote of confi dence yesterday by the Senate, whose members pledged themselves to sup port him in his effort to solve the in ternational problem through a satis factory understanding with the United States. Today, members of th Mexican Bar Association will hold a mass meeting to discuss the international situation and resolve on steps to be taken to avoid a crisis. Thf confer ence is non-partisan and is repre sentative of all M xieo. RAW MILK AND CREAM Boiled milk is e.irler digested by babies than either raw or pasteurized milk, and most of the digestive troubles of bottle fed children are du- to anti quated ideas regarding the al leged value of raw milk. Milk labeled "papteurlzed" may not be "properly"' pas teurized. Washington " lias no laws requinns or "ntrolling the pastern ization of n.s milk. To protect children, invalids and tho! who are m a run down condition against milk In fections, raw milk and cream should be avoided. Many outbreaks of tvphold scarlet fever, diphtheria, sep tic sore throat, etc., have been caused by raw milk, even by the special or certified kind. Properly pasteurized milk and cream, carefully fooled and bottled, is the only kind adults should drink. If tins cannot be obtained get good raw milk and scald it. I: has recently been estab lished that Crenmv Milk Pow der, dissolved in hoil..i water agrees with babies and enures them to thrie, w Inn they can not digest any other food. The Health Officer of the Dis trict of Columbia will give you the sanitary rating of your lo cnl milk supply at any time you should apply for it. Literature on application.

A heavy fog complicated tho situation, and Engineer Townsend, In charge of sec tion No. 4, was not aware of the train in his path until distaster was immi nent. Tracks Quickly Cleared. ' Front ' the number of Injured It looked like a big wreck, but railroad officials here said that It was a small one. They said that tho tracks werer cleared in less than forty minutes. -The crowd that went on the trip to Atlantic City was one of the largest that ever left Washington for tho" seashore resort. zxng before mid night, when the last train pulled out of the Union Station. 6,500 tickets, which is the limit sold, had been pur chased. Railroad officials here said that the injured in the big majority of cases were slight. The several cases of in juries .to knees, they said, probably was duo to tho people being thrown against the seats in front of them. Many persons on the train were suf fering from shock, but it was said that after the first few minutes there was no panic of any sort. Many Were Wnr Workers. Scores of those on the Atlantic City excursion trains were war workers from the South who had planed to make it the last of their excursions before leaving tho Government serv ice in Washington and returning to their Southern homes. Many young women who came from the South to work in Government de partments in Washington this sum mer are planing to return home about September 1, and last night's excur sion gave them an opportunity to see Atlantic City. On the ill-fated excursion tran was a party of ten young school teachers from Memphis, Tenn., who have been doing war work in Washington. An other party was from South Carolina. None of them were injured, accord ing to information reaching here. WATBEN EMPLOYED IN A DAIRY HERE Mr. Wathen was on his wav to At lantic City to speued bis vacation with his wife, his half-brother, Roy Penn. and his mother and stepfather. Mr. and Mrs. H. Penn, of sOs K street southeast. Wrathen had been married u year. He was employed by the Walker-Hill dairy. His wife is said to be in a serious condit.on. Information of the wreck first readied Washington in hundreds of telegrams, wired by passengers to relatives telling them of injuries: or or marvelous escapes, m. t'. Kitchen received a wire early this morning, soon after tho train reached Atlantic City. Tho telegram told him that his hildren aboard the train had not been hurt. TODAY (Continued from Page One.) millions wero sent across tho ocean. You know that a chemical mixture in a glass may be perfect ly safe, while you leave it alone. Shaken, it explodes. That queer, psychological mix ture called the human race has been violently shaken all over the world, hence the explosions. Some conservatives think they can go back to the old plan and squeeze back tho explosions into tho little old bottle of low wage and dull living. There is no doubt that for them was written the fourth verse of the Second psalm: "JIo that sitlcth in the heat- ens shall laugh: Tho Lord 6haU liare them in derision.' BAKER 10 EXPLAIN ' YANKS IN SIBERIA Will Be Called in Probe Grow ing Out of Protest of Chi cago Parents. Having received little hope from their appeal to President Wilson to bring their boys home, the delegation of nine Chicago mothers and fathers of American soldiers In Siberia took their case direct to Congress yester day. As a resuft of Iheir pathetic plea to the House Foreign Affairs Commit tee, Secretary of State Lansing and Secretary of War Baker will be called before the committee, probably next Thursday, to explain why the troops are not returned to the United States. In making this announcement. Con gressman Porter of Pennsylvania, chairman of the committee, elso stated he would probably ask for an engagement with the President to discuss the situation. The Chicago delegation told the President on Wednesday he should, recall tho draft ed men Immediately, even though jt were necessary to keep the regulars here. At the committee hearing Chairman Porter declared the drafted men were sent to Siberia with "absolutely no justification in law." The time has come for Congress "to challenge this extraordinary use of the army," he said. If troops could be sent to Si beria without Congressional sanc , Many Lorn v; .

The recital of the hardships -and sufferings of Ihe American boys amid the snowy wastes of far-away Siberia struck a sympathetic chord in the hearts of the committee members. Two of the witnesses a mother and a rather were completely overcome with emotion as they pleaded for the return of their loved ones. Fred McAver, chairman of the dele gation, broke down In the midst of his testimony and hurried from the room, unrestrained tears rushing down his cheeks. Half a dozen other members of the delegation were affected. An impres sive silence pervaded the committee room, broken only by the loud sob bing of Mrs. K. Alexander.
