couraglng nmnner and said that with all
of the societies that Ind bicn formed in
this countrj and in all of the cities end
towns in whlcji the work had been under
taken there was jet to le recorded a
single failure where the work was once
commenced
The ilrst annual report of the ocletj
was submitted bj ills Marj Hopkins its
Fccrctarj and was adopted The reiiorl
ls an interesting one and In part Is as
follows
Similar societies hae existed In other
places for many jears The Idea origi
nated In England and was a part of the
i vstem of trained nursing estibllshcd In
V01 In Ilverpool In William riathbone
M P The particular branch of the
work which had as its fundamental prin
ciples the cmploj ment of educated and
refined women to care for and instruct
the sick poor in their homes was put
Into practical operation In Uvinool In
1ST and hab since spread over the Unite J
Ivlngdom and Europe The first employ
ment In America of trained nurses In
the homes of the poor was by the
W oman s Branch of the Citj Mission in
New York in 1S77 Fifteen jears ago the
WomtnB Kducntlon Association of Bos
ton established and gate the name In
structive District Nursing Association to
the first non sectnrlan societj of the sort
In merlca and about the same time a
similar society was founded In IhilaJel
phla The Chicago Association was or
ganized In 1S Boston Phil idelphia
nnd Chicago are the 1 irgest non scctailan
district and visiting nurse associations
in America but New York Urookljn
Buffalo Baltimore Kansas Cits and
Newport R I carrj on their work on
plans similar to these
Last February the first district nurse
was cmploj cd In Washington In bix
weeks It was ctident that sen Ices such
as she and other trained and detoted
women could pile were not onlj welcome
but pitifully necessary An appeal was
made to the public In such form that the
managers were able to put three addi
tional nursE in the field before summer
with Its attendant Illnesses came on Of
their services during the terrible heat of
the past season which being their first
was especially trying too much cannot
be said Consumption is terj common
and the neglect of any one case is a
direct menace to the community Intel
ligent patient instruction In the use of
such prei entile measures as can be
taken by any patient or relation has al
ready produced something like responsi
ble efforts In families and neighborhoods
which heretofore hae proved Incorrigi
ble The care of babies and joung chil
dren has been Improved under the teach
ing of the nurses and the results ought
to be showri In the greater vigor in the
children and efficiencj on the part of the
parents
Terrible cates of illness and destitu
tion are retealed and cared for nnd con
fidential relations are established be
tween families of such people and the
helpful energetic tisltor She Is not a
dispenser of money therefore begging Is
not In order and there Is no Incentlte to
dissembling She has come to minister
with her own hands to their suffering
Iiodles and with the wai thus won to
their hearts and gratitude she becomes
a privileged person and a power for good
in their midst Often the nurse sees what
Is hidden from the doctor and the use of
knowledge thus obtained ma aiert con
ditions fatorable to the spread of dis
ease
In closing Its report the board of man
agers expresses a hope thit the public
may continue Us support of this most
worth charity it Is also the hope of the
managers that bene possible donors
maj become annual subscribers for
either large or small amounts for the
care of a benevolent society being analo
gous to that of any household public or
private however welcome gifts maj be
the annual income should be Its measure
of expenditure Special training tejond
that of a hospital nurse Is required to fill
the places of superintendent and nurse
and such women are entitled to generous
nnd certain support The salaries paid
are low compar Ml to the sums earned in
private nursing but the nurses accept
them and work eurly and late for them
It Is the part of the managers who hive
undertaken to suppl such money to se
cure It bejond peradv enture and thej be
lieve that the Intelligent people of Wash
ington will recognize their own obligation
to assist buch endeav or Articles are con
stautl required for the loan closets and
nurses medical bag equipment Such ar
ticles maj be sent at any time to the of

NO DECISION HANDED DOWN
The Supreme- Court Mlcilt nil the
CotiMtlf utinnul CnMes
The Supreme Court jesterday failed to
hand down nnj decision in the Porto
Rican nnd Philippine cases It was sup
posed that some conclusion would be
arrived at and as a re sult the courtroom
and corridors were crowded with promi
nent lavvjcrs and bu lnes men who de
sired to learn the outcome at the earliest
possible moment
It was stateel jesterelav bv a Senator
who is a leader on the Administration
side of the Senate Chamber that no de
cision will be handed down until next
fall and then he added It will not
be a direct decision but a straddle
The general opinion Is thit the result
will favor the Administration without di
rectly holding that the Constitution does
not follow the flag
The- court sustained the title
of the State of Florida to the territory
known as Anastasia Island containing
M acres of land Suit was begun b
Charles M Furman as administrator
setting up title from Jesse Fish from
whom It was claimed the land was grant

STATUARY IN WASHINGTON

fore the lIlMtnrlcn iiclcty
At the monthly meeting of the Columbia
Historical Society held last night at the
Shoreham Hotel S II Kauffmann read
an Interesting and carefully prepired
paper upon the subject of Equestrian
Statuar In Wnshlngto 1 The first n on
ument of this kind ever erected in this
countrv Mr Kauffmann said was the
one of King George III which was Fit
up in York City In 1770 and which
was torn down bj the Bet olutlonarj pa
triots six tears later For more tbtn
Ectcnty fl e jears after that ctcnt there
was not an equestrian statue In this coun
try He then spoke of the Jackson statue
b Clark Mills which was untelled on
Jamjar i 13 the annlversir of the
Battle of Xew Orleans Much has been
said Mr KatifTmnnn stated regarding the
equilibrium of this statue but it has lie
asserted a perfect poise An interesting
point which Mr Kauffmann made was
that there are more eeiucstrian statues in
Washington than In ant citv not onl in
this countrj but ir the world Miej
compared terj rliy ns works of irt
with those of any other -It While that
of Ircde rick the Great in Berlin and
one or two others mat- be examples of
better workmanship than some of those In
Washington as a whole he states the
equetrian statues of this city are su
perior
Mr Kauffmann made mention of all the
various monumi nts of this kind In Wash
ington from the Jaclfon statue the first
erected to that of Hancock the last un
telled In IsM After the speaker had con
cluded his paper it was commented upon
bj iternl of the members

Just as the clock on the I Irst Presby

The crowd dispersed as rapldlv as It

Is said however that the policemen on

The officers of the lmard of he tilth an

Incitement runs high In the eltj iml
It is thought that an attempt on the pirt

Owing to the fact thit the ground upon

Yes 1 hate discussed that matter
manj times with a prominent American
gentleman who acknowledges the feasl
blltt of the scheme If jour Congress will
grasp the situation and enact laws that
are liberal enough
What kind of laws would Congress
nesl to enact to make jour scheme a
workable one
My American frlcnel and I have it
mapped out on quite an elaborate scale
and the idea might appear to be a stilish
one for our own gain bo we will grant
In the beginning that this is so But It
would make of the Philippines one of the
ilchest colonial countries In the world
it would be the garden of gardens
The Government would confiscate nil
property of Insurgents who did not laj
elovtn their arms a certain date All
the Tagalo prisoners of war ns w ell is
all crlmlnJl of all classes would be exiled
to the Island of Guam this to be dona
as long as the war or any semblance of
It lasted It would intoltc making Guam
or a portion of It u penal settlement
Build a rallwaj the length of Ivon
along the Bio Grande de Cagayan
Other rallwa would soon be built
through other sections bj private cap
ital and the would pa from the start
nlmost This would give employment
to thousands of Chinese at once In the
work of construction
Mv friend would complete the organi

earning the Chinese to the Philippines
I would unifertnke to organize the Chi

have to advance saj 10 to pay for his
transportation As much more would
hate to be deposited with the rompan

would be no trouble about pauper Chi

the city would entertain during the oc

lletes will be exceeded by 18IW His
estimate of the arrivals by the Baltimore
and Ohio Railroad was 40OjO and that
road has sent In an approximate esti
mate to Mr Weller stating that the ar
rivals were about 49W
Mr Weller believes that his estimate of
C3000 arrivals at the Penns Ivanla depot
Is apt to hate beenjargely underestimat

entering the city A minimum of 150000
visitors Is the number that Mr Weller
