CHIME CIURGED TO
f OF THE IDLE
Great Number of Assaults and
Robberies in Washington l.-^b
ably Due to Loafing Xegrors.
Times-Dlspatch Bureau,
Munsey Bulldln-r,
Washlngton, D. C... Feb. 17.
On Saturday the twenty-second wo
nan robbed on the streets of Wash
ngton by negroes slnce the 2,-ith day
)f last September was relleved of her1
?ocketbook, the robber making his es
:ape, aa ln all the precedlng twenty
)ne cases. This robbery, following the
me of Friday evenlng on Connecticut
Avenue. the most fashlonable thor
mghfare ln the clty, when a young
woman was knocked down and robbed
3f $73, has arouscd the publlc of Wa.ih
ngton to thc faet that somethlng ap
Droaching a relgn of terror exlsts ln
the national capital ln so far as the
women resldents thereof are concerned.
"Women are not safe on the streets
ifter dark. The robbery of Saturday
Jccurred ln broad dayllght. The one
af Friday occurred about 6 o'clock ln
the evening, and almost ln the dlrect
rays of an are light which swlngs in
front of the Brltlsh embassy. Several
podestrlans heard the sereams of the
young woman and rushed to her re?
lief. Pursuit of the thiof resulted ln
nothlng. The police made one arrest,
lmt the nogro prisoner. though he had
once been convlcted of snatching a
woman's pocketbook. proved an allbl
In this case, and was released.
A Wuvc of Crlme.
Of course. it is very easy to indulgo
ln much wild talk regarding condltlons
In Washington. Exaggeratlon is easy.
lt ls not exaggeration to say that in
no city of the country, apparently, ls
crime commiiteel wlth such compara
tlve frequency and wlth such good
chances of golng unpunlsheel. Not one
of the twenty-two assailants of women
montioned above has been apprehended.
Karly Saturday mornlng on the
25th of last January, Henry W. Reid,
of Virginia, who had conducted a
saloon ln thls clty for several years,
closed his place of buslness, on North
Capitol Street, and started to hls home,
a short dlstance away. In less than
an hour afterwards hls body, stlll
warm, was found lylng ln front of hls
home. Twenty-two knlfe wounds had
been lnflicted, death resultlng, appar?
ently, from one Whlch. had penefrated
thu brain. A bloody oyster knlfe was
lylng near the body. Thls was the
onlv due.
Charles Phllllps, the colored porter
In Itcid's saloon, was taken lnto cus?
tody, and ls stlll held, but tne police
aelinit there ls no evidence agalnst hlm,
and lio wlll probably be released. It Is
likciy tlmt the mystery wlll never be
Bolved.
Too Many Idle Jfej**roe*i.
Posslbly lt would , not be falr to
charge that the police force of Wash?
lngton ls lncompetent. The evldence
ls thu otlier way, but certain lt ls
that there aro more vlolatlons of law
ln tho capital of the natlon, whlcli
should be a model, than ln almost any
other clty ln thc country.
There aro many Idle negroos ln
Washlngton. One-thlrd of the popula.
tlon is colored, yet negroes furnish
more than two-thlrds of the^crimlnals.
Tho demand for a more strlngent
vagrancy law Ia strengtlienlng. Con?
gress acts very slowly. especlally In all
matters pertalnlng to the Distrlct of
Columbia. Uepresentatlve Slms, of
Tennessee, sonlor Democratlc membor
of the Committee .on tho Distrlct of
Columbia, Inaists that the surest way
to put an end to ao much crlme here
lH to close tho aaloona. In thls ho is
being supported by a strong publlc
