' if CLANDESTINE LOVE LETTERS TO CEASE Missouri Postmaster Won't Be Sponsor for General Delivery Evils. KANSAS CITY, Mo., September 7. An investigation for the purpose of s-topping clandestine correspondence and illegal use of the United States mails in Kansas City, K:;s., was begun by V. R. Childs, the postmaster, yesterday afternoon. The investigation will con sist of questioning persons who receive mail at the general delivery window in regard to their names, addresses and reasons for having mail sent through the general delivery instead of to their house addresses. "I am satisfied that the mail is put to illegal uses in this postofliee every day," Mr. Childs said last night. '"In several instances I have ascertained that letters nave been received at the general delivery windows under assum ed names. .Such a device never is used tor a reason that bears investigation; in fact, it is resorted to chiefly by per sons wanted by the police, women who receive letters from men other than their husbands, persons engaged in swindles and girls corresponding with men whom their parents have forbidden them to see. Violates the Law. "In no case is the device justifiable, and it violates the part of the postal law which makes it a felony to use the mails to consummate a deception. The general delivery is for the benefit of transients in the city and persons who have permanent street addresses should have their mail delivered by the car riers." Tlie first person questioned yester day afternoon was a girl who ap peared to be about sixteen years old. When asked by the clerk at" the win dow if she had a street address she replied in the affirmative, and cave the street and number of the house at which she lived. "Then why do you have your mail sent to the general delivery window?" "I get part of it here and I have part of it sent home," she replied. When told that the general deiiveiy was for the convenience of transients and that in the future her mail would be sent to the address which she hid given, she appeared frightened. Used Assumed Name? "Oh. don't send any letters address ed to that name to the house," she ex claimed, as sho took tiie letter and has tened from the office. "There will not be any more letters bearing that name," Mr. Childs said after she was gone. "That was not her own, I'll venture to say, and she was getting letters from someone whom her parents did not allow her to see. If we do not unearth letters from swin dlers and discover more serious mis uses of the mails before we are through with this investigation it will be be cause thev have become frightened and do not write any more. The govern ment knowingly would not countenance such uses of the mans and clandestine correspondence through this office must stop. ' ' Mr. Childs said that persons who are making legitimate use of the general delivery need not fear embarrassment or inconvenience from the questions that will be asked in the investigation. . . PANAMA'S NEW THEATER. The public theater is a conspicuous factor in the life of every Latin Amer ican city Every important town owns its splendid municipal theater, of which it is justly proud. In many cases these theaters are buildings beautiful in de sign, having cost large sums of monej to erect. One of the recent contribu tions in this respect ls.th city of Pan ama. The new government palace and the National theater constitute one of the finest buildings in Panama, occupying an entire block between them. The 1 heater is at one siae and the Palace. in which are me utun uL i .i . of the governing force of the republic. . 1.

NEW YORK, September 11. A six-teen-vear-old girl, who lias a record in' Buxton for swimming, is going to make the attempt to swim around Manhattan 1-land. She is Miss Rose Pitinofi', who was the first woman to swim from Charleston Bridge to Boston Light, a distance of twelve miles. Miss PitinofT says she is willing to undertake the feat of 'wimming around Manhattan, stalling at some boat idub on the Harlem River, down the Hast River, around tlie Battery and up the Hudson. She will lc followed by a steam laum-h and a tug carrying timers and spn-tators. The girl 'says she prefers cold water for swimming. The aveiage tempera ture of the water in her swim to the Boston Light was 45. and she was in the water six hours. Doctor Sargent, inventor of the mus, de-building ma chines, says she is the best developed woman he has ever seen DAY AND NIGHT Russians in ivviiei Tenements Live Amid Scenes of Squalor. If there was ever a ease demanding the most immediate and earnest atten tion of the health authorities of a com munity, then that place is the Iwilei haunt of some half a hundred Russians, where the vermin are so thick that sleepless rights are suffered by the chil dren and a continual scratching is kept up by the men and women. In what is known as the old Ivviiei stockade there are some fifty or more Russian meu, women and children, a family to each cement -floored cell. The washing is done over soft earth and the drippings of clothes in the process of cleansing have no outlet .but to lie upon the ground until dried by the sun. some of the men are working, a few getting as little as fifty cents a day around the wharves, it is said, while many of them are not working at all. Most of them do not even use as much common sense iti regard to sanitation and cleanliness as their opportunities afford. They are either too lazy or too low in the scale of humanity to attend to the ordinary affairs of life with any degree of decency. Thev- look healthy enough at present, but it is either because they are used to dirt or because, luckily, there has not happened to be any outbreak of disease. Russians are also camped on the flats beyond Iwilei, but the recent rains have driven a number into the Iwilei stock ade, a place formerly occupied by apa nee and other women of loose charac ter. The place gives forth an odor that would disgrace the slums of Constan tinople. A few Hawaiians and Japa- nese, who are at present living there, purpose moving out at the end of the week, being frightened away iby the signs and smells of Russian peasant filth. The rooms rent for $1 a week. JAPANESE DIED BY . OWN CARELESSNESS After an unnsuaiiy long session for a coroner's jury, six good men a'ud true last evening decided IhafKakaji Kubo died through his own carelessness as the result of being hit in the back by a tub of coal falling in the hold of the British collier Selsdon on Wednesday. The blow opened an artery and the vic tim practically bled to death internally. It took four hours for the evidence to be put in last evening, for the reason thai the witnesses T-ere Japanese and the oTdinary Japanese witness takes his time in testifying whether he has any evidence to g:ve or not.
