JL MI BICYCLES STOLEN Washington an Excellent Field for the Wheel Thief.

Washington has been termed the wheel joen'e paradise. It is also a great fle'd for bicycle thieves. Among the highest and the lowest men, women, and children of alt classes and all ages bicycle riding has lifwwic a feature of eyery-dav enjoyment. Likewise, the bicycle thief enjoys oppor tunities here to ply his trade not found clsewerc Probably In no other city of equal size in tne country is die wheel so generally used. Twenty-five thousand bicycles are said to be owned in Washington The hanker, the business man, the department clerk, and the laborer, all enjoy the priv ilege of skimming over the aspba't of Washington's streets, and bicycles are to be seen in every port of the city In the snlmrbs, also, the wheel becomes a practi cal necessity, and at night the hundieds of rapidly moving lanterns attest the value and popularity of the bicycle It is not surprising that the bicycle thief ftourishes in Washington He has an ex ceptionally wide range of action, and as a role, can afford to be choice regarding use selection of his plunder In many in stances, bicycles are left for hours un guarded at the doors of dwellings in re mote sections of the city, while frequent oases of loss could be cited in the down town districts. It is true that owners of bicycles attempt at times to protect their property by the use of chains and patent locks. The thief is equal, however, to thU emergency. A small pair of nippers, dex terously handled, cuts the chain and re leases the wheel, which is appropriated by the thief. At Police Headquarters a special book ie reserved for entries of bicycle robberies This list is in the possession of Detective Mailer, to whom ali bicycle cases are as signed for investigation. Reports that eome in from the various precincts are im mediately entered in this book A general sJamv. wltn description of the stolen wheel, is then sent to every station, di recting a search for the property Within a short time an investigation is also start ed by Detective Mulier, should any cle be found upon which to work Where a wheel is located, the owner is at once notified, and dm propert) returned upon the signing of a receipt which is filed by the po ice for reference Behind the disappearance of many bi cycles is a story of organised business en terprise, which, though unlawful, is. donbtfess, remunerative In the larger cities, particularly Chicago, gangs of thieves are organized for the purpose of stealing bicycles, which, after numerous changes, are offered for sale as second handed. In such cases the wheels are skillfully altered, numbers are changed, and the frames are cut down by the dealers. To complete the disguise, in many oases, the machines are re-enameled and rspaluius There is no certainty that an pjgMttsad gang works in Washington, but the latins manner of losses reported to the peNee makes such a conclusion appear to he reasonable, An axeheag of stolen stock by dealers In several cities is also said to take place, wherA an active search b the police is In Ladies' Suits.

A week ago the Commissioners received a letter from Dr J B Gregg Custis re garding the detail of a policeman to en force the laws in relation to the practice of medicine, dentistr, and pharmac In the District of Columbia; also offering sug gestions as to the compensation of tho members of the medical examining board and the board of medical supervisors Tho letter was referred to Health Officer Wood ward for report, and his suggestions wero received b the Commissioners esterday Dr Woodward states that he agrees with Dr Custis in that it will be necessary to detail a policeman to attend to the enforce ment of these laws especiall He states that heretofore the men detailed for dut in the office of the Assessor have done this work, but they have not acquitted themselves a3 a man who was especiall detailed would A policeman engaged iu such work would soon become familiar with all the legal practitioners in the clt, he states and would also learn to Lvov, what evidence was necessar to properl prosecute viola tions of the law Dr Woodward holds that the appointment of an officer to enforce these laws is of as much practical im portance as the laws themselves, as with out such an officer the laws would not have the desired effect . In regard to the compensation 'or the members of the board of medical examiners and medical supervisors, Dr Woodward regards the fee of $10 suggested by Dr Curtis for each meeting as very reasonable and he recommends that this amount be paid in addition to what the phsiclans composing the board now receive, which depends upon the amount of work they do Commissioner Wight transmitted the le port to the Superintendent of Police with the suggestion that tho recommondatlons It contained be immediately complied with.
