WASHINGTON
BIG CITY FOR
JAY WALKERS
Capital Has Higher Percentage
of Accidents Than New
York Even.
CIRCLES ARE DANGEROUS
WASHINGTON, Aug. 17.—The visitor
to New York is always warned against
the haiards of crossing a street without
the personal assistance of a policeman,
yet the records show a greater number
of accidents per capita in Washington
than in perilous New York.
From the beginning of its history, the
national capital has always held the rep
utation of being a collection of parks and
marble buildings, the whole enfolded in
a languid southern atmosphere.
For over 100 years this description was
more or less accurate.
Then, suddenly, war tore some 100.00 T
stenographers and newly made officers
from their peaceful homes and landed
them in the thick of the battle at the ad
ministrative front.
The onrush of volunteers from New
York, Pittßburs and all points west
lammed the capital to its utmost ca
pacity, and the city began to know what
heavy traffic really was ,
By the time suitable traffic regulation<
were worked out and put into effect the
■hooting was about over.
Since then Washington has recovered
a little of Us old-time tranquility, but it
will never be the same.
Washington as the war left it is full
of traffic cops, street signs, parking
regulations, and rules for crossing a
street. , f
It has a crowded business sect.on,
and Its circles, which Maj. L’Fnfanf into
out to be emergency forts, have become
modified race tracks around which au
tomobiles scoot in rapid .succession
while pedestrians await a siac,i . mo
ment on the curb, or rnn the gauntlet
by hopping in and out among the ve
hicles. ...
anew Idea for making life on the
Hrht safer is put across every fen
weeks. . ,
Yet pedestrians continue to be jar
walkers. many autoists fail to stop at
points where passengers are leaving
street cars, and accidents mount.
The city's traffic troubles are largely
due to the character of its population.
Flocks of tourists are perpetually war
dering about with their eyes lifted to
'lie dome of the capitol and *he!r brains
buzzing with plans for meeting a favor
ite statesman.
Then there is official Washington—the
ambassadors, cabinet officers, congress
men and political figures.
These people with their families are
always coming and going.
Traffic rules are fairly similar ail ovei
the country, and in the larger foreign
cities, but Washington has local peculi
arities which some dignitaries never
learn until they are about to leave it
Infractions o£ the law committed by
foreign diplomatic representatives are
called to the attention of the state de
partment. . .
Only home-grown officials are subject
to the laws.
Publicity is given to accidents as a
warning to the people, and the police
department has started a campaign to
teach the children caution:
In the office of Capt. Albert Headley
of the eitv traffic department, taere is
a map of the city all dotted over with
numerous colored pins
The map is the captain's own idea and
each pin shows where a street accident
occurred.
A red pin means the death of an auto
mobile passenger or driver; a pink pin
means a pedestrian killed.
Yellow means Injury to the driver;
white, injury to a pedestrian; green,
damaged property; and black, no serious
consequences.
-These pins show traffic accidents only
for the past four months,'’ Capt. Headley
explained.
"From the map we can tell where ac
cidents *re most frequent.
•‘Then we study the cause and try to
remove it.
“Washington has many acute angles,
due to avenues that run diagonal to the
streets, and motorists coming together at
these angles are apt to collide before
they take account of each other.
“Then, there are the circles, with six,
or eight streets running into them, all
pouring vehicles into the space around
the circle. "v.
“At .one time, vehicles could go in any
direction around these circles. Now, of
course, they must bear to the right, and
even then the circles are real danger
tone*.,
"As Scott circle, for instance, a few
blocks from the Whitehouse. Jhere Is a
roadway sixty-five feet wide Ground the
circle.
“An ordinance provides that vehicles
ore to keep to the ontside of such spaces,
close to the curb of the streets border
ing the circle.
“But the temptation to ake a exhort
cut leads motorists to use any part of
the sixty-flve fqet. so that people on
foot are in danger every step of the
way across. '
“At this-particular circle, ‘.he pedes
trian had such h hard time of it that
we put out posts with chains between
them.
“Six of these chains radiate like spokes
of a wheel from the circle twenty-five
feet Into the road.
“They force the motorist to keep within
the forty feet left at the outside, so
that the person on foot has a smaller
danger zone to cross.”
Capt. Headlev has found that too great
width of street Is as conductive to ac
cidents as too litttle.
On a stret over 100 feet wide, as many
©f the avenues are, a driver can be
fifty feet from the and still be
on the right side of the street.
When traffic is heavy and vehicles are
spread out this way, crossing the street
isc made unnecessarily hazardous for the
pedestrian.
Washington has narrow streets, too,
where vehicles traveling both way are
likely to get into a jam.
But the narrow road is an easier
problem.
Washington t-opied Boston, Pittsburg
and Philadelphia by making her narrow
downtown thoroughfares “one way”
streets.
All sorts of traffic novelties have been
tried out on the capital.
Yellow tin signs mounted on posts in
form motorists where they may not
park tbeir ars. White lines painted
on the street mark off spaces like stalls
la which cars should be parked.
At some of the more dangerous cross
ings, lanes for pedestrians are indicated
by white painted lines stretching from
curb to curb.
Vehicles are supposed to slow down at
Lord Mayor of Cork
Guilty of Sedition
CORK, Ireland. Aug. 17.—Lord May
or McSwinney of Cork, found guilty
by a military court-martial on three
charges of sedition, refused today to
recognize the right of the tribunal to
tr.v him.
"I’m lord mayor of this city and
as its chief magistrate I declare the
•ourt illegal." he said.
“Participants in Its proceedings are
liable to arrest under the laws of the
f'ish republic.”
UcSwinney was found guilty of har
ing a secret police cipher in his pos
.session Hi; sentence will be an
nounced later.
Flees Before Reds
MISS MARTHA A. CHICKEBING.
When the Russian bolshevlkl besieged
the gates of Warsaw, Miss Martha A.
Chiekering, in charge of Y. W. C. A. work
In the Polish capital, was obliged to flee,
and will not return until the suspension
of hostilities.
Her home is in Piedmont, Cak
cross walks and pedestrians are
supposed to follow the white lines.
Jay-walking—crossing a street in the
middle of a block—is discouraged.
It can not very well be made a mis
demeanor, for in some cases It is neces
sary for a person to go info the street
and then to prohibit it would give ve
hicles too much license.
Drivers, knowing that people on foot
had no business in the street except at
corners, would be more Inclined to reck
lessness.
Traffic policemen In Washington have
tried standing in enclosure and on tuba.
They hare experimented with whistles,
gestures nnd finally with “Go and Stop”
signs to control automobiles and street
cars.
At some busy crossings where no
traffic policemen is stationed slightly
raised circular pieces of iron have been
piaced in the center of the street as a
guide for traffic.
A California city uses a more elaborate
arrangement, consisting of tall concrete
vases in which flowers of ferns are
planted. The sides of the vase are
marked “Seep to the Right.” and the
wisdom of the warning Is brought home
to the reckiess driver who tries to run
his car over the solid concrete stand.
Small concrete copies of the Washing
ton monument, or statues of the presi
dents, might be appropriate for the na
tional capital instead of the vases. *
Concrete traffic cops are about the
only safety idea untried by the district s
traffic department.

GOODRICH COAL
AND FOOD ACT
BUTT OF SUIT
(Continued from Page One.) \
plaintiff Is real estate, and so continues un
it Is severed from the freehold, and. then
It becomesf persoal property; that the act
does not give the commission authority
to compel other owners of coal lands In
the state, and owners of coal In place, as
real estate, to sever their coal from the
freehold and convert it into personal
property for sale in sufficient quantity
to supply domestic demands.
It Is claimed by the plaintiff that thia
section grants immunity from the law to
owners of property containing coal, which
has not been shafted, and that it makes
the owner of mines comply fully with
the law.
Paragraph 32 deals with contracts en
tered into between coal operators and
wholesale and 1 retail dealers, setting
forth that it violates sections of the
federal and state constitutions providing
“that no law impairing the obligator
of contracts shall be passed. ’’
Section 0 of the act Is charged to be
unconstitutional by paragraph 33 of the
complaint because it would affect in
terstate comtnerce by giving the com
mission power to prohibit the sale of
coal outside of Indiana before domestic
demands were supplied.
Paragraph 34 holds Section 9 invalid in
that it restricts the quantity and price
at which coal may be sold in Indiana
and that such restriction is not imposed
on coal operators outside of the state.
PARAGRAPH S3
ATTACKS SEC. ID*
Paragraph 33 of the petition says that
Section 10 is invalid because it would
give the power to the commission to re
voke a license and subject penalties for
enforcing its orders, thus depriving the
plfJntiff of liberty and property, with
out due process of law and without equal
protection of the law.
Paragraph 86 declared section 13 of
the act is Invalid because it imposes
a tax on the coal mined for the purpose
of investigating the high cost of food,
as set forth in paragraph 25, which
leaves the food dealers immune from
such tax.
Paragraph 37 declares no tax is levied
on every cord of wood or on every bushel
of grain produced in the state, but saya
the tax would be levied on every ton
of coal mined, thereby denying the coal
operators equal protection of the law._
It is declared in Paragraph 38 that a
tax of l cent on each ton of coal mined
is unjust because the value of coal mined
varies.
Paragraph 39 charges that Section 13
of the law is further invalid, dealing
with the injustice of the 1 cent tax on
each ton ‘of col mined.
QUESTIONS POWER
I OR TAXATION.
Paragraph 40, also dealing with section
13, declares the legislature has no power
to levy a tax on . orporatlons outside of
the state, and that by the levying of a
Ux ou all coal sold in Indiana they
would be so doing
Technicalities are discussed in para
graphs 41 and 42 of the complaint.
Paragraph 43 chtrges the coal and food
commission would have no power as pro
vided in section 20 to grant priorities
for delivery of coal.
From paragraph 43 the complaint
Jumps to paragraph 45, omitting para
graph 14.
Paragraph 43 deals with the impairing
of exiting contracts.
Paragraph forty-six. the last para
graph, charges that because the plaintiff
has no adequate remedy at !aw for re.
fatal to comply with the reputed Illegal
provisions of the act, the plaintiff will
t.-e subjected to nrrest, which will Inter
fere with Its business and necessarily
ipfllct great damage.
It Is declared further that the act
makes no provision for suit by the plain
tiff to recover the amount of license fees
and direct taxea if the plaintiff pays
same under compulsion of the law.
The complaint was signed by John A.
Zeller, assistant secretary of the Ameri
can Coal Mining Company.
Judge Francis E. Baker of Chicago of
the United States circuit court, probably
will come to Indianapolis to bear the
plea for the temporary restraining order,
according to a statement of Fred Van-
Nuys, United States district attorney.
Judge A. B. Anderson is on a vacation
and will not return until Sept. 23.
The coal commission bill was one of
the hardest contested measures which
came before the recent special session of
the legislature. 1
,Tbe idea originated when it was sug
gested by Gov. Goodrich and administra
tion leaders that the state buy a coal
mine and cars for the purpose of sup
plying coal to state institutions.
This plan met with considerable oppo
sition and was dropped.
It was then decided that a commission
should be appointed to control the pro
duction and distribution of coal.
POWER. DECISION
IS MADE.
It was decided finally to place thss
power in the hands of the board of ac
counts.
The bill as passed gave to the accounts
board what was said to be more power
than ever before vested in a state board.
The bill gives the hoard of accounts the
power to fix the price of coal In the stata
and to regulate its distribution.
In order to make this possible the act
provided that every coal dealing con
cern-miners. Jobbers and retailers—
should be required to take out a state
license.
It provided heavy penalties for con
cerns falling to take out such a license,
for operating without a license and for
disobeying orders of the board.
Generally It was expected that legal!
action would be taken to test the con
stitutionality of the act and even per
sons who were pushing its passage ex
pressed doubt as to whether It would
stand the teat of the qpurta.
The act automatically becomes inoper
ative July 31, 1921.

Then he told me how they had named

sued by a lady because it had Brasil
Cocoanut in It Instead of Brazil nuts.
“That time we came near getting ac

“Anything that’s stylish fakes with

“Just for instance, once in a while I
run oat of tall glasses and serve it to
’em in low ones, and get ’em sent back
to me; in fact, some day# I get sn ordei

The multitude of chocolate and straw
berry dishes served opened an avenue of
my innate curiosity,
“Wherefore all the chocolate and (
strawberry dope?" quoth I.
I was favored with a withering glance
and the information that chocolate is
the universally popular flavor of Amer
icans with strawberry second.
“We sell six times as much of these
______ flavors as those

“That’s the way they all do." sighed

haring been with Lenlhan or anybody
else early that morning.
When Lenihan was questioned, how
ever, he admitted having been out with
Craig all n.*ht, asserting that about 11
o’clock in tho evening he had gone to
Craig’s home
street, changed' into spine of Craig’s
civilian clothes and then started to Foun
tain square with him to get some gaso
line so tha tthey could go fishing the next
morning, the chief said.
Lenihan declared that while at Foun
tain square they met John Schulmeyer,
proprietor of a dry beer saloon, and that
Schulmeyer asked Craig if be had time
to drive him to police headquarters, the
chief continued!
Cliff Ally, who is held under bend on
the charge of having been implicated In
automobile thefts, was with Schulmeyer,
the evidence indicated.
Craig took the pair into the machine
and drove them to New Jersey and Pearl
street, where he, Schulmeyer and Ally
alighted and went down Pearl street to
police headquarters, where Schulmeyer
gave bond for John Dampier, another
man charged by the police with being
under suspicion of having stolen cars
from garages in the districts of Lenihan
and Craig, witnesses testified.
FINALLY
CONFESSES.
When confronted with the fact that
Lenihan had told him the above facts.
Chief Kinney said, Craig confessed that
be had been with Ally, Schulmeyer, Craig
and Dampier.
The five drove away from police head
quarters, Lenihan said, all but the two
policemen alighting at Shelby and Minne
sota streets.
Craig and Lenihan denied that they
were with the bondsman and suspicioned
men after this, asserting that they drove
to Craig's father's home, intending to
go fishing the next morning.
Both denied having had any liquor,
despite tbe bakery wagon driver’# asser
ton that he smelled it on their breath.
Attorney Henry Spann, who appeared
with Lenihan, attempted to show through
witnesses that Lenihan was only a paa
{ senger in Craig's automobile with the
j bondsman, Ally and Dampier, and had
bad nothing to do with getting bond for
Dampier.
Following this, Attorney Bynum called
| James G. Mulligan, a taxicab driver, who
; testified that he had been with Lenihan
