Herbert W Lcwif the Superintendent
of Charities has Informed the Commis
sioners that the passage of the bill now
before Congress for the establishment of
an inebriate asylum In the nfttrlct would
be premature and inexpedient This ac
tion was taken in direct opposition to the
views expressed by Major Sylvester and
Sanitary Officer Frank in their annual re
port Tchcn tbey urged the Commissioners
to secure such an Institution as soon as
possible Senator McMillan Introduced a
bill In the Senate last month providing
or the establishment of the inebriate hos
pital and It was referred to the Commis
sioners for report They In turn referred
It to Superintendent Lewis and his report
was received by them yesterday
The latter states that there are a num
ber of reasons why the Commissioners
should not advise hasty action on this
measure In the first place he says
there is no good foundation on which to
bate a belief that such an institution
would effect the cure of that which Is
generally referred to as the disease of
Inebriety Some of the highest authori
ties both In this country and Europe hare
asserted that there is no cure for the so
called disease while others of equal repute
have contended that there is It is hard
to determine which of these Is right the
Charities Superintendent continues and
even allowing that those In the affirmative
can prove their case how far does the
treatment accorded the Inmates of the
asylums of hospitals go toward effecting
a cure The extent to which a cure can
be effected and the means of securing
such relief are yet to be determined and
until this Is done It scms that the estab
lishment of an Institution of the kind In
the Capital is premature
If Congress and the Commissioners de
sire to experiment In the treatment of
inebriety they can very properly do so
through tie lneertlon of a clause In the
bill for the establishment of a municipal
hospital which will assign one of the
wards in that Institution to such matters
and where all the experiments can be tar
ried on under the direction of the District
authorities The pirns and estimates of
this building are subject to the approval
of the Commissioners according to the
provisions of the bill now before Congress
and they can therefore Include such fpc
cial facilities for the treatment of Ine
briates as they deem wise and as may
be required by the conditions that prevail
in the District In conclusion Mr Lewis
states that the authority for the commit
ment of such patients as may be unwill
ing to become Inmates of this particular
ward of the municipal hospital can be
readily obtained from the proper authori
ties when It Is known that such a place
is In the process of construction
At present there Is no law or regulation
in this city regarding the Incarceration of
Intoxicated persons Some time ago there
was a police regulation which made help
lees Inebriety a misdemeanor punishable
by a fine of not more than 55 but the
ordinance was stricken from the books
and at present the police are not sup
posed to arrest those who may roam about
the streets In an Intoxicated condition The
District authorities have invested the
policemen with the power to take care of
intoxicated persons that are found on the
utreets and they are often taken to ibc
tatlonhouses and locked up over night
to prevent them doing barm to themselves
or other persons
ror somo time past the police officials
have been of the opinion that on Institu
tion of some kind should be established
In the city where such persons could be
detained or treated until tbey are cured
and it has been given a great deal of at
tention by tho present Superintendent of
Police Major Richard Sylvester His at
Untlon was first called to the matter by
the following recommendation of Sanitary
Officer Frank on the 1st or July IMS
There is a great and growing need for
the establishment of an asylum for In
ebriates More than the usual number of
persons suitable for admission to an asy
lum of this character has been called lo my
attention in the past year and I consider
a hospital tor the care of Inebriates quite
as necessary and humane as a hospital for
the Insane
Again tills year Mr Frank has spoken of
I the Inebriate asjlum I again urge the
Ctamlsnment ol a hospital tor Inebriates
He sas In his annual report It Is well
Imottn that the evil of Intemperance exists
In this commuuKy ana an lnsltutlon for
the detention of Inebriate1 Is greatly need
ed I believe lht If Corgress creates such
an institution It will have acccmplUhed a
work equal In all respects to the most hu
mane and beneflclent I am pure that such
an asjlu n or home would have a restrain
ing Influence
Thus Importuned by his subordinates
Major Sylvester made the following recom
mendation In bis report
This is an Institution which exists In
other progressive cities the sed of which
Is felt here Experience liar long since
prompted the recommendation for the es
tablishment of an Inebriate asylum in the
District Not a day passes but what ap
peals are made for tho care and treatment
cf subjects who cannot be properly cared
for at a hospital or Insane asjlum Some
of these are prepared lo meet the expense
of treatment ethers are not out under
any circumstances the burdens of many a
household would be lightened and many a
physical wreck prevented had we the
means at hand for radical care and treat
This recommendation Is ssld to be the
cause of the Introduction of the bill In the
Senate by Senator McMillan for the estab
lishment of such an Institution and It is
thought that the measure will be referred
to the Chief oj 1ollcc for report before the
Commissioners finally act upon it They
have not approved the report of Superin
tendent Lewis as yet but may do so next
week and It will be submitted to the Con
gressional committees when the bill is re

Curio nud Unliiue Hello

dollars and at firit Mr W O B Cliflord the
executor of the Wernicke estate thought that
the demands of lis creditors could be met by
disporing cf Its collection at private sale
The late Mr Wernickes cnthuiiaam upon the

There arc more fraud orders Issued In
the winter than during the summer
months said James N Tyncr Assistant
Attorney General of the rostofficc Depart
ment to a representative of The Times
The reason for this may be ascribed to
tho fact that people read more In cold
weather than at other seasons of the year
Most of the schemers whose business is
of a fraudulent character and leads to the
mlsuso of the malls for obtaining thtlr
nefarious ends arc well aware of this
fact and consequently Insert their adver
tisements more persistently In the winter
months especially so during the holiday
The country Is full of people who de
velop all sorts of schemes lo live on the
gullibility cf their feliow citliens There
is hardly a city that has not Its set of
promoters and schemers New York Chi
cago and Hoston predominating There
arc some whose methods of obtaining their
ends are subject to more severe censure
and punishment than those of others
Those who advertise and offer apparently
honest and legitimate work lo men and
women and afterward rob them of their
hard earned savings are the ones who de
serve the severest censure and punish
ment Lottery schemes counterfeiters
green goods men brokerage and similar
concerns where a person is apt to know
that he may bo dealing with swindlers
and Is liable to lose his money also come
in for their share of punishment although
net as strong as the other class of mall
frauds as In this case the patron walks
Into the trap with open eyes
There were thlrty slv fraud orders Is
sued during the last six months twenty
four of which were entered upon the rec
ords during the last three months Ameri
can lottery schemes are almost a thing of
tho past as far as the Postofflce Depart
ment Is concerned There are German and
Austrian and occasionally Canadian lot
tery concerns which at regular Intervals
pour In a heavy mall of prospectuses and
circulars It does not make any differ
ence whether these lotteries arc legitimate
or fraudulent the rostofficc Department
docs not transmit their malls
One of tho most common schemes of
this kind which has proved profitable In
many cases to Its promoters may be desig
nated tho jewelry fraud Advertise
ments are Inserted In papers remote from
the base of operations reading like this
Barrels of money are emptied every
week Into the pockets of those vho are
wide awake If you want a few barrels
of money dont hesitate to take up our
offer at once
The concern advises tho patron to send
1 for which they offer to remit a haraple
of their Jewelry which Is gotten up so
well that no one rxecpt an expert can tell
tho difference between it and the genuine
On receipt of the dollar the patron of the
scheme Is sent a new crisp J J bill on
which Is pinned a piece of cheap Jewelry
He Is led to believe that he wil obtain
1000 counterfeit SI bills for JiO It Is
alleged that when any person sends In
either J40 or 1J0 for the amount speci
fied the schemers send simply cheap
Another scheme Is begun by advertising
for writers to copy letters at home It was
discovered by the schemers tnat it raid
best to Insert their advertisements under
the heading Female help WAnted The
patron upon answering Is requested to
sent 12 rents for an outfit He receives
a piece of ordinary canton flannel de
scribed as a Jewel burnishing ciotn and
a circular describing the work which Is
to be done This consists of writing what
are krown as chain letters asking tho
addressee to remit 12 cents lo the concern
for one of their burnishing cloths The
pay of the victim Is computed on tho
number of cloths he or she sells whereas
tho advertisement implies that the pay
will be based upon the number of letters
A scheme which was operated quite ex
tensively was the circulation throughout
the country of a pamphlet in relation to
stock brokerage This pamphlet said that
large profits were being made for cus
tomers the lowest beinj It per cent
monthly percentage on investments The
scheme was to obtain a large amount of
remittances after which the operations of
the concern were to be suspended leaving
the funds In the bar of the officers who
would make away as best they could
An advertlsen cnt extolling the virtues
of a patent medicine attracted the atten
tion of the postal authorities and caused
the issuance of a fraud order After hav
ing built up a large business the pro
prietor turnel the business over to some
one else who received remittances but
never returned any goods for them
An advertisement purporting to employ
lady copyists at a weekly salary of SIC and
asking for 15 cents for a copy of the Mai
den Lady and full particulars caused the
Interference of the postal lnspetors To
those who sent the required 15 cents the
concern sent the Instructions to write to
their friends as follows
My Dear Tom Would yiu like to get
a diamond scarf pin free It so send tbls
letter ayl 50 cents to the Maiden Lady
Publishing Company Cahootsvllle for a
years subscription to that publication
They will send you full Instructions for
getting the diamond scarf pin
The plan of this concern Is to obtain 15
cents on the promise of wotk and 50 cents
on the promise of a diamond scarf pin both
of which promises were fraudulent and
Another scheme consisted of an offer to
make loans to persons on advantageous
terms requiring certain payments of money
to be made to the concern In advance of
the Issuing of such loans and after receipt
of such payments fraudulently refuting to
make the loans as agreed before receipt of
cuch remittance
This Is tbo scheme of an enterprising
Westerner He sends postal cards to per
sons who have relatives in the Philippines
saying that your son before embarking
for the seat of war had bis photograph
taken with the ship as background and au
thorized me to correspond with you and
offer ou his photograph which I will send
upon the receipt of 50 cents The
swindler received lots of monej but the
patrons were disappointed at the non-receipt
of the promised picture
Another concern mailed requests for
prices on certain goods to iron dealers
After tccclpt of the price he would order
the goods priced citing fictitious refer
ence The goods were sent the references
were co consplrators and the dealer re
mained without compensation for his goods
A so called firm li the Hast offered 500
llk remnants silk thread embroidery silk
needles and other uaterlnl for the sum of
25 cents As a special Inducement the con
cern olfeicd an elaborate reproduction of
the photograph of the buyer finished In
colors and handsomely framed In a heavy
gold frame Remittances poured In Noth
ing was returned When again requested
to fulfill their contract the concern re
quested an additional sum of 14 cents to
defray cost of contemplated shipment
which never materialized
Another scheme was begun by advertis
ing for ladles to do embroidery work at
home for good pay and honest treatment
The second step was to send out circulars
to those answering enclosing sample of
work to bo done To do this successfully
however n certain make of sewing ma
chine was necessary which could be se
cured by making a remittance of II The
third step was taken after tbc dollar had
been received The work to b done or
rather the order for the same was sent
It was a phslcnl Impossibility to do the
work within the time prescribed however
and the machine was withheld until paid
for by the earnlnjsof the victim
Some of the schemes are so bare and
open faced It Is a wondtr that apparently
Intelligent people will answer the adver
tisements and thus fall Into their traps
continued Mr Tyner After the medium of
circulating their fraudulent schemes Iswlth
hcld from them they Tcry often branch
out again In the same business under as
sumed names Dut as a rule the first
fraud order Intiraldatesi the schemer suf
ficiently to cause him to look for another

The new superintendent of the St Eliza
beths Asylum for the Insane Dr A II
Richardson has made a report which was
made public jcstcrelay of the operations of
the Institution under his direction since he
was placed In charge According to thiB re
port there are at present 2456 patients In
the hospital There were 18S full recoveries
of mental energy by persons confined In the
asylum during the past year and one pa
tient was released after 11 had been proved
to the satisfaction of the physicians In
charge that he was not Insane
The greatest number of patients came
from Virglna and the least from Utah the
latter being the only State from which only
one patient was taken Of foreign born
patients the majority arc Irish and closely
following In point of number are the Ger
mans Acute mania is the commonest form
of mental disease treated In the asjlum
but simple dementia is almost as prevalent
There are twenty four cases In the asylum
reported to beelue to the use of opium
The asylum according to the report Is
In great need of a storehouse nml refrig
erating plant for the preservation of the
food supplies of the hospital Moreover
the cottages In the grounds for the special
accommodation of patients arc In need of
appliances for proper heating and ventila
tion and for tbls the sum of J1S0O Is asked
The development of these cottages which
are known as detached buildings has
grown to proportions far beyond what was
originally Intended and at present there
arc In this group alone nearly 700 male pa
tients composed of members of the Na
tional Home for Disabled Volunteer Sol
diers soldiers and sailors from the regular
army and navy and civilians among the
latter being a large number of working
men who render excellent service upon the
form In the vineyard und garden In the
kitchen laundry and stable The food for
the patients In these detached buildings
Is brought from a kitchen In connection
with the main building of the hospital
through a tuanel TOO feet long which
causes the vessels holding It to become cold
and the food la often unpalatable when It
reaches Its destination
The president of the board of visitors
Dr ft Sunderland has earnestly requested
that the hospital begranted appropriations
sufficient to reraedjf Jhej snany defects ex
isting at present intlHedonduct of the In
stitution as well as for buying more land
and erecting buildlrigs which are vitally
necessary or accommodating the Increasing
number of patlentsi In Dr Sunderlands
view the present buildings and grounds
are wholly Inadequate for this purpose and
the existing state of affairs calls for Im
mediate remedy

To the uninitiated It Is almost useless to
try to describe the beauties of the Turkish
Bath and only a trial can thoroughly con
vince you that what Is claimed for It both
as a pleasure and a benefit Is absolutely
true In every respect-
A few evenings ago I was treated to an
enjoyable half hour chat with Dr John N
Bovce proprietor of the elegant bath at
No 1229 G Street after which the genial
doctor showed me through the different
apartments of the bath It Is certainly one
of the most modern In equipment and ele
gant In appointments that It has ever been
my lot to examine Every comfort and
convenience that can possibly be arranged
for the guests Is here provided and the
services rendered by the four expert mas
seurs In attendance Is par excellence
Five dollars Invested In a course of eight
baths at this establishment is worth ten
times tho amount spent in doctors bills
and medicine

of the Gleaner as he strolled leisurely
along F Street After making himself
known to Mr Waggaman a short chat
about the merits of the shoe was enjoyed
Mr Waggaman demonstrated the many
meritorious qualities of the shoe and
showed about twenty five styles that
would touch the pocketbeok of any man
The extreme swells In all leathers as well
as shapes that looked the very height of
ease The Waggaman shoe Is undoubtedly
a big bit judging from the number of
customers that purchased In the short time
I remained 350 for all shoes Is the key

Scarcity of Wood Pulp
CIIICACO Jan 27 A serious famine
threatens the paper industry of the United
states various causes nave conspiretz to
lessen the product of the mills while tho
I demand for print paper and the other or-
dinary grades Is unprecedented
These conditions have led to a secret
meeting of the leading paper manufactu
rers of the United States at the Great
Northern Hotel to consider what would ba
done to avert the famine threatened by
the shortage In wood pulp Nearly all
of the leading paper manufacturers of the
country were present and the principal
topic of Interest was a new fibre for the
manufacture of paper to take the plac
of the wood fibre now In almost univer
sal use What the new fibre Is the paper
manufacturers would not say
Not for twenty years has such a seri
ous condition confronted the manufactu
rers of naper and there Is great danger
that we may be forced to close our mills
lor lack or material sam a v jcnaei
fer of the Hartford City Paper Company
who presided over the meeting The
principal cause of this condition Is that
wood pulp from which the lower grades
of paper are manufactured Is so hard to
get that there Is a constant scramble fot
material Recent enquiry of the pulp
mills at Sault Ste Marie the largest pulp
mills In the world develops the fact that
there Is not a pound for sale there and
other mills are as hard pressed We have
not come together to form any combina
tion or to raise prices The demand nat
urally governs prices The sole object Is
to avert a famine If possible for a famlno
would hurt the producer as much as tho
nttt w have been a3ked to Inspect
a new fibre to take the place of wood I
i cannot say now v hat the fibre Is but If It
proves to be wbat 113 oiscovcrera ciuiua
for It we will no longer be dependent up
on wood pulp and paper will be greatly
