Discovery of saccharin, a substitute
for sugar, in soft drinks here, today
led Dr. John L. Norris, acting District
Health Officer to call representatives
of the several local bottling es
tablisbments to the health office for
an explanation.
Food inspectors recently secured
several bottles of soft drinks. An
analysis of the drinks showed they
contained saocharit. The health office
does not believe saccharin healthy
used as a substitute for sugar, and is
making every effort to have its uhe
in this manner discontinued.
The hearing of the soft drink men
will be held sonetime next Week. If
they cannot present satisfactory ex
planations for the discovery of sac
charin in their drinks the health
office intends to prosecute.
Saccharin has a swetening power
600 times greater than sugar. One
small dfop can sweeten a cup of cof
fee or tea, whereas at least a tea
spoonful of sugar is needed.
The 'department of health of New
York says: "Saccharin has no' food
value, and, if substituted in whole or
tn part for sugar, in a food product,
it reduces, lowers, and injuriously af
'feats the quality and strength of such
food product."

"One doesn"t appreciate the good
old U .8. A. until he has been through
that war-ridden, hunger-stricken, and
demoralised country of Russia." es
claimed Bernard Goldberg, a young
Jew, of 821 Sixth greet northeast.
who returned to Washington a few
days ago after spending two months
in terrorised Russia, where he went
to meet his mother, Mrs. Sarah Gold
berg, and bring her to this country.
Goldberg came to this country
sev.n years ago, and is now preparing
for college. He is employed in one of
the Government departments in the
city. His father died in Russla about
nine months ago, and the young man
decided to return to the land of his
birth an bring his mother here.
Goldberg spent most of his time in
Riga, one of the largest seaport
cities in Russia. The harbor is occu
pied by British wsjahipi.'
Riga is now under a Lettish form of
gedament. It is rin in something
of a republican style, with a provie
ional president, wolnsa suffrage, and
all the fixings. The people have ex
perienced many varied forms.of gov
ernment duribg the past year. includ
ipg Bolshevist and Communistic. Ac
cprding to Goldberg, they are willing
to support any form of government
that is established.
"The people of Russia are-discon
tented and Aliscouraged," said Gold
berg. '4hey are tired of the continual
fighUng, and would do anything to
have peace established. All are poor
and have to rely on the American Red
Cross for food and clothing."
Goldberg was loud in his praise of
the Red Cross. He stated that there
in.alyays a corps of workers, labor
ing untiringly to aid the demoralised
Russians. The Russians dearly love
the American people, and feel that
they ote America a huge debt be
cause of all the good work done in
their behalf by the Americans..
While at Riga, Goldberg witnessed
a pogrom. He said the Letts held a
big celebration and massacred hun
dreds of Jews.
"All the factories in Russia have
been shut down, and not one com
modity is being exported from he
country," Goldberg said. "German
and English articles are imported
into Rusta, but prices are op exorbi
tant that it is impossible for the
people to buy them."
"Shoes are sold at 700 rubles a pair,
while a suit of clothes costs 2,009
rubles. Before the war, a ruble was.
worth about 50 cents, but now it is
worth about 2 cents. Meat and bread
cannot be bought for less than 100
"nAmerican can live cheaply In
Rtussia at the present time. Our rate
of exchange is so far above Russia's
that it costs snuch less for gn Amer
Ican to live there than it does in thIs
country, provided he receives his sal
ary in United States currency."
Under the laws, a person In Riga
can't have more than 3,000 rubles in
his possession, Goldbery asserted. The
people are taxed so heavily that no
sooner have they any money than it
is taken away from them, he said.
Goldberg denounced Englands pro
gram in Russia. He said Brltihh
warships are stationed in the harbor,
omstensibfy to protect Btitish subjects
but In reality to gal'f a foothold in
the ,country. He said sailors from
these warships have no respect for
the people of the country. England
is trying to establish a go ernent
In Russia. but the people Will not
stand for it. Goldberg stated.
There was a two months' lull in the
fighting while Goldberg was in Rigaa
He said the soldiers were tired o
fighting and were glad of a chance
to lay down their arms for a while.
"The police system in Riga is de
plorable," said Goldberg. "Citizens
are arrested, thrown into prison and
cometimes shot for the most trivial
offenses. I was in jail mnyself for a
while because I didn't happen to
have my necessary documents with
me at that particular stime.
"Fiance and England ship large
consignments of guns and munItion:
to Russia, by way of Dansig. If the
supply of niunitions were cut ogt,
there would be no fighting, because
the Russians cannot nianufacture the
articles themselves," he said.
Goldberg also visited Poland. He

The District Rent Commission this
morning warned by intimation that
landlords in this city must maintain
a uniform price for apartments of
Mille size and desirability in the sate
apartment house. This is expected
to stopithe practice of charging $100
for one apartment when the correa
ponding apartment on the floor above
or below rents for $75 or less.
The commission, in handing down a
ruling on the complaint of .torah A.
Chapin against Clyde B. Asner, )wn
er, and Gardiner & Dent, agents, de
clared today a rental of :l70 per
month to be "ekcessive, unreasonable,
and unfair" for apartment 20, the
Northampton, 1407 W street north
west, and ordered the rental to be
reduced to $47.50.
The partment in question haa flye

that her rental is much in excess of
that paid by other tenants occupying
similar apartments.
The commission ordered a $30 per
month reduction in rent' for property
at 1426 Ninth street northwest, in the
case of Frank E. Walker against
Lawrence I. Mills, agent. The pres
ent rent of $100 per month was de
clared to be excessive.
In the case of Charigs J. Allen*
against J. Benson Thomas, the com
mission set $32.50 as a fair rental for
apartment 2, the Westover, 2501
Pennsylvania avenue northwest. A
request was made to raise the rent
from $27.50 to $40.
In the case of Henry W. Offutt
against J. Jerome Lightfoot, the com
mission set $32.50 as a fair rental for

President Ham declares the com

Not only are the small consumers

that the cost of electric current to

asked that the 3 cents per kilowatt

An increase in the cost of elec
