The Commissioners ye-terday afternoon
parsed a stringent order relative to the
cancellation of taes as follows.
That hereafter, wheneer application is

therefor in eery case shall have been pre

I'AHEXTs' DUTY TO CHILDREN.
Compulsory Support to Be Urged by
The commissioners will urge iipon Con
gress at the cdmiugse&sion the passage of
a bill to provide fot the compulsory sup
port of children by parents Such a bill was
up before tlie Senate at tlie last session
Senate bill 1074 but did not become a
The CotnmlRi.ijjuers state that there is a
great need for a law ot this kind in the
District, and that under the present laws
wltn regard to children and husbands and
wives, a father may turn his child out into
the street, txrbeeome"au object of charity,
ormjj deceit his family entirely, even if
he is abundantly able to support it
The Commissioners recently referred this
Senate bill to Mr. Herbert W. Lewis, the
"supeiintendenl of charities, for his opinion
The bill provides, Jn brier, that parents
of cMhlrei. under fourteen years of age.
i ho shall willfully and unnecessarily refuse
or neglect to provide for them shall lie
guilty of a misdemeanor. It also pro
hibits parents from mnking false eprc
sentations bi institutions or private per
sons to induce them to take care of chil
dren. A penalty of $100 fine or three
"months in jail or both is provided
Mr. Lewis, in a report submitted yester
day, strongly recommends the passage of
the bill with certain minor changes. He
It is intended to meet and prevent a
practice which has heretofore been common.

support of children Icae them "with FOine
person or some institution, promising to pay
regularly for their support, and for mean bot
inducing persons or lnstituticns to receive
the children they resort to liaud and decep
tion. They then neglect or refute to make
the payments promised, and although
often well known and often well able to
contribute to the support or their offspring,
there has been no process provided by which
sucn persons can be compelled to make such
payments. Kshould be j ossihle to compel
brutal and neglectful fathers to provide
for the necessities of their children.
It frequently happens that upon the
bearing before the courts of the District
of Columbia of a case involving the commit-
nientof children to the Board of Children's
Guardians, a parent is present, having '.
been summoned as a witness or otherwise,
nnd it appears upon examination that such
parent has income sufficient for the sup
port of a family, and that, notwithstand
ing this fact, the children are "destitute
of suitable home and adequate means of
earning an honest living" or they are
"abandoned by their parents,' either of
which conditions justifies their commit
ment to the guardianship of the board
under existing law. It frequently appears
that commitment to the guardianship of
the board is the only means for securing
the safety and welfare of the children.
The bill as a whole, if made a law,
will meet and have a tendency to correct
a condition which is not, to my knowledge,
tolerated in any well governedmunlcipality,
and will not be inharmonious with other
laws on similar subjects in this jurisdic
tion. Similar laws are in force in several
States with good results. The Ohio
Humane Society collects f ron. truant and
neglectful fathers, In the city of Cincin
nati, about one thousand dollars per
month toward the support of children who
remain under protection. The laws of
the State of New York are similar.
Under the law a large part ot Its en
forcement will fall upon the board ot
children's guardians. Mr. Lewis recom
mends that should it be necessary an
otnet officer for the board be provided.
