D. C JAIL SO CROWDED 40 PRISONERS SLEEP ON CONCRETE FLOOR
TENT CITY
Cell Wing of Old Workhouse
May Be Renovated as Tem
porary Quarters.
Forty prisoners at the District
jail slept oh the floor last night.
Crowded all wintrt- beyond the
natural capacity of the institution,
the jail now has a greater popula
tion than it has ever had, with the
possible exception of the period
during and immediately following
the race riots of three years ago.
Situation Serioils.
The average dally population dur
Jnr the month of March was 232.
The report for the month of April
will show an Increase over that
number.
Pallets made or mattresses and
?ullts laid on the concrete floors
urnlsh beds for the overflow.
With the approach of the hot
weather season a serious situation I
faces the District.
Commlasloner Cuno Rudolph, who I
has supervision over the Jail, has
frowned on the proposal to have
a tented city on some of the va
cant lots In the vioiftTty of the Jail
for prisoners for whom no beds
are available. The expense of
guards and the danger of having
too many escapes is one of the
reasons advanced.
Capt. W. L. Peake. superinten
dent of the Jail, stated today that
It would probably become necessary
to disinfect and renovate one of the
cell wings of the old workhouse,
two blocks from the jail and equip
It for the overflow of prisoners.
One of the cell wings has been
razed, but the remaining structure
could be utilized as 111 annex to
the jail, it is said.
With the addition of the old work
house there would be accommoda
tions for approximately 100 pris
oners. It Is plajined, however, to
raze the entire workhouse building
as soon as the Galllnger Memorial
Hospital, now under construction. Is
completed. The hospital covers a
portion of the workhouse grounds.
Report of Inmates.
The last report on the number of
Inmates In the jail and the offenses
against them showed:
For assault, 24; carrying dangerous
weapons. 15; disorderly conduct. 1Q:
grand larceny, 21; housebreaking. 16:
Intoxication, 181; larceny, 27; violat
ing the prohibition law, 27, and mis
cellaneous. 37.
During the month of March 443
prisoners were reecived at the Jail.
Should the United States Supreme
Court interpret its recent ruling that
a man cannot be sentenced to hard
labor from Juvenile Court without
first having a grand jury investiga
tion to also Include Police Court
cases, another problem will face the
jail.
Such a ruling, it is claimed by
local attorneys, would mean that
most of the prisoners at the work
house at Occoquan would be returned
to the jail. Captain Peake sa^-s that
he can use about sixty prisoners for
doing chores and light work about
the Jail. Beyond that number he
has no place for them nor duties to
which to assign them.
SECRETARY DAVIS URGES
MORE PAY FOR POLICEMEN
The work of the police was lauded
last night and higher pay wan udvo
cated for them by speakers who at
tended the entertainment and ball
given by the Policemen's Association
at Pythian Halt.
Secretary of Labor Davis, the prin
cipal speaker, said the public can ill
afford to underpay such an impor
tant body of its servants. Not only
was a living wage advocated, but a
?avlng wage as well. He reminded
the bluecoats that they must live an
orderly life If they hope to have good
health and wish to succeed.
Congressman Frank Murphy of
Ohio. Odell S. Smith and C. 1.. Hal
rymple also advocated better pay for
the policemen.
Following the speechmaking, re
freshments were served.
About 600 j>ollcemen. with their
wives, sweethearts and friends,
crowded the hall.

Roar." .We don't know whether
they borrowed the roar from Tom
Heflln or he cot it from them,
but we are sure there was some
roaring.
The unanimous opinion at the
Genoa conference seems to be
that Russia should have American

Just recently had the same feel

is as old as the first ire age,"
but they don't know how long ago
the ice age was. The American

THAT "CIVIC VIRTUE"
?STATUE.
They're hoisting that "civic vir
tue" statue of MacMonnles into
position In City Hajl Pnrk, New
S'ork. After the terrific civic coin
motion about it. the crowds which
gather around have no idea what
it typifies.
And that s art. true art. The
sculptor thinks he knows what it
signifies Presumably it portrays
strong, clean manhood harshly
stepping on the neck of tempta
tion. which is supposed to be a
woman.
The crowds which have been
watching the statue hoisted have
reached the conclusion that the
alleged woman is a mermaid after
all?anyhow some kind of a fish
with a tall?and that the man is
just a "rough guy" with a l>ase
hali bat ready to knock off the
head of the temptresn.
After the furore It mused has
been forgotten, bright New York
ers and passing rulies will stare
and wonder what it Is at! about.
Only tne artists and sculptors will
stop and try to decipher Its mean
ing. The "high brows" will nat
urally understand right off the
l?t, Just as they do when they
read Omar Khajjam and certain
other poets who thought they
knew wha^ they were writing
alsmt and believed everybody else
ought to know.
It's a grand thing to tie a "high
brow" and see right through hazy
poetry And meaningless statues
without anybody having to tell
them.
From various New York news
papers. which quote the views of the
populace about "Civic Virtue":
"Who's the cuy up there?"
"Why, he's virtue, whoever that
it."
"My Gawd, Kitty, betcha I
wouldn't let no man get me under
Ills feet like that."
"That ain't art, for a man to
liave liis foot on a lady's neck."
"I'd like to see any gentleman
step on my neck."
"What's it all about, anyway?"
"Dearie, don't you know art?
That's true art. If you under
stood art, you'd understand."

FLINT, MICH., IS
MODERN UTOPIA,
SAYS PLAINTIFF
Woman Asks Court Aid to
Compel Husband to Allow
Her to Go There.
Discovered?Paradise!
Located In Michigan. Flint is the
name of the town. Flint by name,
but "cinch'' in reality.
In Flint a person can live for less
than two-thirds of what It costs in
Washington. Kent hogs are un
known factors. Houses with three
bedrooms can be rented for $26 a
month.
Mrs. Agnes ft. Carpenter, who
lives at 230 L'pshur street northwest,
painted a glowing picture of the
[?harms of Flint today in District 8u>
preme Court.
She wants to go back there to
live, hut her husband, Klmer B. Car
penter, who Is a 14,000-a-year audi
tor In the Internal Revenue Bureau,
says nothing doing, according to th?
woman.
She filed a petition today to re
quire her husband to show cause
why the court should not pass an
order permitting her to move to
Flint with her children.
In April. 191!?, Carpenter sued his
wife for u limited divorce, and Mrs.
Oar|>enter a month later entered a
cross bill against him, the court
awarding her $20 a month alimony.
She declares she has found it aJUao
lutely Impossible (o live on $200 a
month and maintain her family, and
has, therefore, been compelled to
rent two of the three bedrooms in
her home, for which she receives $.*,0
a month, which, however, makes it
necessary for herself and her five
children to sleep in one room. Her
husband, alleges the wife, is now
J?HO alimony in arrears and is mak
ing no efforts to pay the same.
Mrs Carpenter declares her hus
band has visited his children during
the past year only about si* or eight
times, and believes ho does not care
for them. She says she has an offer
to sell her house, which will help her
to take up her residence in Flint,
where she has been supervisor in the
public schools, which, she says, are
splendid and offer fine educational
fai'ilitieii equal or superior to those
of the District of Columbia.
BAD EYESIGHT
OFTEN ILLUSION,
EXPERT CLAIMS
Optical Authorities, Meeting
Here. Say Defects Some
times Only Imagination.
If your eyesight is l>ad and you
are continually seeing your own
nose, or you are seeing two moons
or anything else like that, the best
thing to do is to forget about it.
Because it's all imagination.
That's what Dr. J Cray ("legg,
of Manchester, ICiiglund. advises.
Discussion of just such things
formed tin- major |>art of an address
made by Dr. Clegg this morning
before the International Congress
of < iphthalmologv, meeting in D.
A. K. Hall.
s Dr. Clegg indicated that many
persons lals>r under an illusion that
their eyesight is bad when they
see things twice. He pointed out
that there are many patients whom
it is impossible to convince that
two pairs of glasses can be made
exactly alike.
"I've had cases where I have
prescribed glasses, ordering two of
the same kind." he nald, "Yet the
patient has come back to me and
complained that the glasses are
different. It's nothing more than
Imagination."
The cure of patients of this sort
can only come by the method of
suggestion. It was pointed out.
Various treatments for different
ailments of th" eye, some of them
new, were discussed at length In
papers read today. Among those
who addressed the congress today
were Dr. S Oemblath. of Paris:
Prof. C. B. Finlay, of Madrid: and
Dr. S. Lewis Zlegler, of Philadel
phia.
Visits to scientific demonstrations
at the Army Medical Museum are
on this afternoon's program. To
night an evening session will be
held at D. A. It. Hall. Addresses
will he made by Prof S. P. Whlt
nall. of McGIll I'nlverslty. Montreal,
and Prof. M. G. Guyer. University
of Wisconsin.

FOOD PRICES IN
CITYDROP4P.C.
Will 30 OAYS
Cost of Living, However, Is 50
Per Cent Higher Than in
1913, Figures Show.
Food prices in Washington have
iJtxTpan-d 4 per cent within the past
thirty days, according to compilation
of figures hy the Department of
j Lal>or on the coat of living.
| The present coat of reta.il food In
Washington allows a decrease of 16
! per cent compared with a year ago..
Thin is the Blad news of the depart
1 merit, but just to prove the old adagei
that "somebody must take the Joy
! out of life." the department adds
that, even with the decreases the past
year, food prices are today .*>0 per
j cent higher here than they were in
January. 1913.
Within the past sixty days all farm
food products have shown a icain of
! approximately 'J*4 per cent, attrih
uted, the department says, to ad
vances in wheat, barley, corn. hop*.
1 sheep, lambs and poultry.
In all other groups decreases tn
retail prices have been recorded,
ranging from one-half of 1 per cent
for building materials to 3"j per <-ent
. for foods. These figures are based
on reports from fifty-one cities.
Decline in 51 Cities.
Of these cities, scattered through
out the States, Bridgeport, Conn.,
shows the largest decline in food
prices, approximately 1" per cent,
j Denver and Savannah registered U:j
l ltoston. Kali River, Providence and
Salt l.ake City, 8. while more than a
dozen show a decline of 7 and 6 per|
cent, in all of the fifty one citl-s
' each one showed a define, the lowest
[being New Orleans, with 1 per cent.
Other commodities show a slight,
"hut encouraging" tendency to
travel down grade, t'lothing slipped
1 per cent; fuel and lighting ma
terials 2 per cent. For the newly
weds. the glad news Is that they
can buy their household furnishings
4 per i ent cheaper now than they
could last month.
Krrs Away Down.
There is nothing, however, to
gladden the lives of District motor
ists. True the figures show a de
cline of a little over 1 per cent In
tires, lubricating oils and some ac
cessories, but the rval fly In their
ointment is the announcement,
made simultaneously with the De^
partments living cost figures, of
the Standard OH that gas is up
from 2 to 3 cents per gallon. On
top of this, over the horizon, looms
the "reciprocity tax" of 2 cents
per gallon.
The department's conclusions roi
a real wallop at the H. C. of L..
Is to exist on eggs, which show a
decline of 27 per cent, and regis
tered the largest decline in prices
With the old gas wagon stored In
the barn, an egg diet, and last
years clothes, the department
figures you can live al?out 40 per
cent cheaper this month than you
could last.

EXPERT'S PUN
ON D.C. HOUSING,
Members Protest Mrs. Helmick
Giving Out Landlords' Side
By H. R. Brigham. *
Does Harry H. Brigham, of Bon
ton, represent the sentiment of the
hollaing committee of Washington
when he makes a fight for the rent
hogs, profiteers and land hogs of the
District?
Should Mr. Brigham. representa
tive of the National Heal Kstate
Board and self-styled expert advisor
to the committee, be permitted to re
Imaln as a member of the committee?
Should written statements by
Brighain defending rent hogs of
Washington !?? given out to Ihi
press by Mrs. Eli A. Helmick, chaii
man of the whole committee?
These are the questions that will
be asked if Mrs. Helmick will call
for a general meeting of the com
mittee which Krank K. Nelwker,
1 member of the committee, declared
today he would demand.
The entire committee should have
a say in matters of this kind. Mr.
Nebeker said. Before such state
ments are given out for publication,
even though they represent only the
views of one member, they should
first be passed on by the entire body.
Several members of the committee J
have threatened to resign because of >
the activity of Brigham and the pub
liintion of his dnfense of landlords
here.
('apt. Julius T. Peyser has chaM
lenged Brigham to a public debate,
and says he will prove that nothing
Brigham said in his statement was
true.
Other members have agre-d to
take no steps toward quitting th*
committee until the entire body lias
had an op|w>rtunity to meet and
thresh tht- matter out fully.
