BALTIMORE Jan ST Tomorrow vlll
be a busy day lor Baltimore policemen
There is no bluff about the statement that
the Sunday law is going to be enforced
The police board the grand jury and
Marshal Hamiltons forces have said so
and the law vtill be carried out to the
letter The order came about so suddenly
this time that the people of Baltimore arc
dazed by Its provision Little by little
some other branch of trade tiat Is carried
on on Sundays Is searched out and this
too is put within the pale of the law
llcre Is a partial list of those who will
be Teported to the grand Jurj If the sell
anything or do anj work tomorrow Cigar
dealers grocers meat dealers messenger
boys hackmen coachmen saloon keepers
drivers bootblacks fruit dealers soda
water dealers Ice cream dealers news
boys lunchroom dealers clerks type
writers confectioners and stationers
The police department has rarely had so
much trouble on its hands as It now has
Marshal Hamilton had several consulta
tions with the police board today and the
result was Uiat It was agreed that the
law would be strictly enforced The po
lice stations today became bureaus of in
formation for the time being and ques
tions of every kind were asked In most
of these cases Marshal Hamilton was J
called In the Central district a majority
of the people who came with queries were
sent to the marshal
It is said by those who profess to know
that the police department has bit oil
more than it can chew and there is go
ing to be a hot tlmein this city tomorrow
To Illustrate with one example Marshal
grand jury
JIarshal Hamilton thought that messen
ger boys would be nciessarj but said thai
they would not be exempt The hackmen
who stand jn front of the railroad stations
will have lo look out for policemen
otherwise they will have to give their
names It Is not probable that those who
go to church In carriages tomorrow will i
be molested but one of the dealers vho
will violate the law tomorrow unless he I
closes complained that there was no dif- j
ference between his working and that of
the coachmen who drive the wealthy
pie io church I
It is said at several lunchrooms that
there will be no closing tomorrow Every- J
thing will go on as usual and if there is 1
a prosecution the proprietors will stand by
lh fine As no arrests are to bo made
there will be no way of preventing a viola
lion of the law tomorrow The newsboys
who have the temerity to sell their wares
tomorrow will go on selling just the same
no matter how often the policeman takes
their names

There was no sef scheme of decoration
although the hall was a bower of smili T
cut nvm potted plants and orchids with
arms and other svmbols of the army and

Mrs Mark 11 Hatch and J C N Smith
After a thorough Investigation tho com

Mr Roche said to tlie reporter Hint the
statements heretofore circulated had no
foundation In fact He said that Mrs
Crelghton and Miss Thomas had made a
trip to New York to see Miss Helen Gould
and If possible interest her In the soelety
TIiIh was at the expense of the society
They had alto made n trip to Indianapolis
tho expenses of which Miss Thomas paid
and for which the society would reimburse
her They had also made a trip through
the West but it was at their own expense-
and every dollar expended by Miss Crelgh
ton had been fully accounted for
Mr Rocho attributed Ihe circulation of
the report to a dissatisfied clement In the
