Two plans have been suggested for the permanent roller or the poor of.tbo District. The one Jnvolvos the colonization of several hundred families on some tiact or tracts of land in an adjoining State, each family to get ten acres. The other is wliat lias be come ktiown as the potato patch plan, re garding -which The Times has already ex pressed itself favorably. There aro serious objections to the ten-norca-fa nitty idoa. The first and jttost im portant is its expensivoncss. It i6 thought that It will cofcl something like ?40,000 to put it iu operation. The second objection lies in the fapt that having settled 200 poor families, ruauy more uundiod poor families reniaiu, and if they wcie to bo provided forinthesarae manner there would simply be no end to the outlay. Another objection is that it is nut right tor the Dis trict &f Columbia to foist its poor upon an other JState or community, either in pur suit of some experimental scheme or in auy other fashion. Nne of these objections obtains in the potato patch scheme. That is simple, inex pensive and practical. Nor loes 't re quire the expatriation frcm the District of families who perchance have lived here for years. That it is piactical cau not be denied, for it has been repeatedly tried in Europe and in this country, and in every iustauce successfuJIy. No great outlay of money is necessary; all that is Deeded is enough to buy some farming implements and potatoes for seeding. Instead of giving ten acres to each family, half of that, perhaps evon less, would suf fice. It is believed that a five-acre patch would yield potatoes enough to give a smalt family all it needs for its .i use, and enable it with the proceeds from the sale or the rtiaainder to buy other provi sions. There is an abundance of vacant grwrod in the District or Columbia that can be utilized, and the owners of which no doubt would be willing to lend it for that perpose. This plan of relief does seem to commend itself by reason of its simplicity and inex peush'ouoss, and The Tunes hopes that a waj- may be found to put it i nto operation. THE REFORM SCHOOL EIOT. Y.Tflle there may be a good deal of "nat ural ouasednoss" at the bottom of the riot at the Girls' Reform School, the affair serves to draw attention to the oft-stated fact tuat tiie accommodations at that insti tution are altogether Inadequate to the de mandsmadeupon them. Increased facilities have been urged from time to time, but nothing has come of it. The establishment was started upon too narjow ascale. There is notsufficientroom to separate the girls as they should be , and this one circumstance has a decidedly bad effeot upon the maintaining of proper dis cipline. Then mere is lack of cells -for purposes or punishment, and in a general way a great deal is wanting to make the in Etitution as complete as it ought to bo. The equipment of a reform school should be oonipietc, and arranged with a view to impress those placed there under restraint by the presence or everything necessary to control them and reduce them to subjec tion, ir they should feel inclined to bo turbalent. In the present instance the events or Thursday and yesterday emphasize the necessity for supplying what is now lack ing to put the school in a proper state ofef Xidency, to prevent the recurrence of such disorders and to afford the means for promptly quelling them, in case they should happen. NO ENTANGLING ALLIANCE. Mr. Kurino, the Japanese miuistcr to the United States, in a recent interview, gave it as his personal opinion, one not in the least inspired by his government, that it would be advisable for this country to join Great Britalsiuan alliance which would offset that of Rusnia, Germany and Prance. He called attention to the fact that the trade of the United States with Japan, next to that of Gieat Britain, is more im portant than any other nation's, and, there fore, this country ought to take a natural interest in seeing that no undue pressure,niuchless hostile intervention.was practiced toward Japan by the three allied powers "With all due respect to the Japanese minister, the United States should do nothr ing or the sort On the coutrary, it oughtto steer clear of all entangling alliances, of anything and everything, that might in volve it in a conflict that does not volve Its boirrc and its dignity. In the case of trouble arising between any .of the four European powers above named and Japan, the United States will, to the best of its ability and with all the means at its com mand, protect its commerce and American Interests in Japan Beyond this it should not, and probably will not, go. At the same time, being on amicable terms, not only with Japau, but also with each and all of the four great European powers, the United States would be in an excellent position to teuder its intermedia tion for the removal of any cause of conten tion and restore that peace and good feel ing which, between nations, as well as in dividuals, best promoteshappinessand pros pi rlty Liquor Crazed John Scott. John Sco tt, fifty years of age, while under the influence of liquor, fell on Pennsylvania avenue near Twelfth street yesterday forenoon and cut a slight gash in his lorehoad. TVhen taken to the Emergency Hospital be exhibited all the symptoms of acute mania or delirium t remans, and wanted to brain the surgeons with a basin. He was finally subdued, however, and after bis wound was dressed he was sent to No. 1 station, where be was locked up. Antiquities aud Aborigines. Mr. Prank Hamilton Cushing lectured last night before the National Geographic Society at National Rifles' Hall on "The antiquities and aborigines of Peru." The speaker was introduced by Mr. Gardiner U. Hubbard, president of the society. TEDDY" ROOSEVELT'S REASONS CoolneHH Jletween Illm nnd Commissioner Lymim, the Taylor Affair uuil Others. Civil Service Commissioner Roosevelt and a reporter for The Times had a talk yester day afternoon. The reporter sought to interview Mr. Roosevelt on the subject of his resignation, and the sensational story that it was prompted by dissatisfaction with the President because ofhis inactivity in the case of Recorder Taylor, whom the Civil Service Commission has recommended for retirement. Mr. Roosevelt was not averse to being interviewed. He never is. During the In view ho ran the conversational gamut, from weather to war and pugiiism to phil osophy, but on the very point at issue Mr. Roosevelt had nothing to say in words, though it was very easy to translate ills manner. It was very clear that Recorder Taylor is not an especial favorite with the retir ing commissioner, and it was also clear that the course of the Presideut in thus far Ignoring the recommendations of the com mission is not approved of by Mr. Roosevelt. It was clear further that the reason of Mr. Roosevelt's resignation lay not in these causes. The real reason for the change is under stood by the commission to bo that Mr. Roosevelt has wearied somewhat of Wash ington aud has yielded to the pressure ex erted on him to return to New York and aid in the cause Mt municipal- reform, which lies as close to his heart as civil service reform. Then there is another factor, though not a very potent one, which is that the rela tions between Commissioners Roosevelt and Lyman have been a little strained for some time. This statement has never been mndc ex cathedra, but this is the current belief among the people at the office oC the commission . "Have you Tesigncd because of the Tay lor affair?" bluntly asked the report or. Mr. Roosevelt simply smiled a very mean ing sfaile, through which gleamed two stacks of white chips, and said: "Now, you know very well that I do not wish to discuss the mutter of my resig niUion. i have not as yet resigned offi cially." or course. Mr. Roosevelt had no views ,to give as to who his successor is likely to be. TRUCK FARMERS' MARKET. Old lliy Market on Louisiana Avenue Wanted for Thut Purpose. An important meeting of tho gardeners and farmers of the District and vicinity was held at the American House last Tues day. About fifty representatives of tho truck farming interest were present, aud n temporary organization was effected, with Col. Robert Rives, of Rives Station, Md., as chairman, and Mr. Charles Rives as secretary. The object of tho organization is to in duce iho District Commissioners to erect suitable buildings for the accommodation of the truck gardeners and farmers of the District and vicinity on the old hay market square on Louisiana avenuo, between Tenth audElcveuthstreetsnorthwest. Itisclaimed by the tmc-keis that this was the original iutent or the donor or this tract or land when he deeded it to the District. While it is not believed that the plans sug gested will nfiord accommodation for all the truckers who daily bring their produce to the city, ftill it will be a vast im provement on tho present unsatisfactorv ar rangements. According to the clcsest'esti mates made, three-fourths of the total uumber who crmedally during the summer months, and wht come regularly in tho win ter season, can bo comrortably and advan tageously accommodated in "the proposed uew hay market. Messrs. Charles Reeves, Horace Crcozen, aud Charles Howisson wero appointed a special committee to draft a definite piopo ositiou to be submitted to tho District Com missioners next Tuesday. Among those who took an active part in the proceedings of the meeting were Messrs. John Gardner, Joseph Jioyer,M. Smith and George M. ?.enault. Another meeting will be held on Tuesday next at i:j o'clock at the American House, Seventh street and Pennsylvania avenue, when a permanent organization will be effected. YOUNG'S PERILOUS POSITION. lie AVns Partly Iiruivn'Iuto u Compressed Hrick Machine. Thomas Young, a workman in Richard son's brick yard, on South Capitol street, yesterday evening narrowly escaped death and sustained a broken arm at the yard. Young was working about a compressed brick machine when a finger on the left hand was caught betweeu a pulley and belt. In an Instant the man was lifted bodily from the ground, and his arm passed in the whlrliug mass of mechan ism. He shouted to the engineer to out off steam, and luckily the latter heard the cry, aud shut off the throttle of the large englue. When aid arrived Young was danglings by Lis arm from the top pulley of the ma chine. It was found that his left arm had been snapped above the elbow. He was taken to tho Emergeucy Hospital in the ambulance, where his arm was set and he was sent to his home, No. Dll L street southwest, In the police ambulauce. The Xewly Issued "Kpoch."

Papa-in-law, That Was to Bo, Found Out His Prospective Son-in-law's . .Weakness.. Some of the Interesting talk JL" society at the present moment is in connection with an engagement that bangs fire and concerning which there isany amount brcotijccture. Those who claim to bo in tho innermost circles or friendly footing with tho fam ily, which, by the way, is one or the wealth iest in town, whisper about among their friends again'tliht the" mail who was con fidently looked upon by society at large as one or the grooms-elect of the present sea son, will never have the chauco of posing In that capacity so far as the young wonTau or his present choice is concerned. That Is, he will hot do so unless there is a very radical change in his habits in re gard to card playing. In a word, the father of the wealthy woman has heard rumors to the effect that a large portion of tho young man's time and money is spent in playing cards, a form or amusement upou which pater familias does not look with tho least favor, especially when it comes to a possibility of his own daughter's fortuno being disposed of in this way. In all other respects the match is all that could he desired by an ambitious parent and it is in consequence or this very im portant fact that society is looking ou won dering what will bo the next turn of af ffairs. Tuesday evening was a great time gener ally among the theatergoers, more espec ially among those who went to Albaugh's and were unable to" be entertained with any performance on account or the serious illness of Stuart Robson. Among the many who wero turned away on this accuont was quite a large party of young people, who, under the chaperon age of a fashlonuble young matron or the West End, recently returned from abroaX The plan had been for tho party after the performance at the theater to be enter tained at supper at Page's, and to nils end every arrangement had been duly made. These arrangements included a meeting with the matron's husband, who was to join tho paity at the theater niter tho close or the play and go with them to the supper. When it was discovered that Mr. Rob son's illness would interfere with the per fect carrying out of their plans, the mem bers or the party put their heads together and decided to do the next best thing, in securing the best possible seats at Ada Rehan's performance. This was accordingly acted upon with out Turther delay, and all of the party trooped over to the National with the ex ception of the matron. The latter in order to-apprise her husband of the change of plans, jumped into her carriage that stood waiting at the theater door and drove with all speed to her residence near Dupont Circle. Hero a state of affairs confronted her. The butler taking advantage of her absence, as he supposed until a late hour or the night, had proceeded with all celerity to fill him self as full of old rye as possible, and by the time his mistress apicared upon tho scene was about as gloriously and uproar iously drunk as he knew how to get. It was some while bofore the matron ap peared iu tho teat kept for her at tho National, as before allowing herself that recreation, she had been kept busy calling up police headquarters on the telephone nnd then waiting until the obstreperous butler had been lemovcd in the ambulance and the house placed in charge of a police man in order to insure itssalety during heir absence. Tills much accomplished and the proper message IeftIor her husband, the matron felt that the time had arrived to allow her self the recre.it iou or joining her friends at the theater aud giving heiself up to enjoy.-, ment for the remainder of the evening. Mr. and Mrs. George Nathaniel Curzon will sail for Europe to-day rrom New y.ork. They left the city yesterday on the noon train, and were accompanied to tho depot by a number or their friends, who had been apprised of tho time of their departure.

A iffla'iP Board of Trade Adopts Two Plans for Relieving the Poor. - ITS OWN COxMMITTEE TO ACT Detroit Potato Schonio and Indianapolis Food -Market to Be Put in Operation and Sup ported with Board Funds Essolntions Adopted Declaring tho Offica of Superin tendent of Charities Superfluous. The Board or Trade met last night at the Builders' Exchange, and transacted three items of decidedly important busfuess. It passed a lesolutlon seeking to abolish .the oflTOe of superintendent ot public charities, "now held by Col. John Tracey, or New 1'oilc; it adopted the Indianapolis and tno Detroit plans for the relief ot the poor or the city this season aud next season, and it suggested tho formation or a board or charities. President Warner in the chair regretted :hat theie was not a larger number ot the board in attendance. Among those pres 3iit were the presiding officer, Secretary Wright, and Assistant Secretray Gurley, Messrs. Armes, 'Bellinger, Biscoe, Dr. Bovee, Butts, Cbe!,, Cay wood, Chappel, Clifford, Davidgd, diodge, Pardon, Flint, Krizzell, Gude, 'Hall, l T. Janney, J. Harrison Johnsoji, Lansburg, Llttlefield,' Malley, McQuadu,, Macfarland, Theo. W. Noy.es, Peck, Petouzq, Perry, Read, Saun ters, Singleton, Dr. Ritchie, Smith, J. W. Spehr, Trimble and Dr. Woodward, . . DETROIT AND -INDIANAPOLIS PLANS. .The action or,the; board was based on a special report of its committee on c'har tfe3b'r'wMUf Mr. "Frederick 'LvMoorcis' chairman. In' this report Mr. Moore fully explained' the' Detroit plan or ex tending' charit;--that is, the potato farm,. or agricultural jinetjiod, with which the public is now familiar through The Times. In this relation Mr.' Moore read a letter from Mayor Pingree, of Detroit, ;wherc liie pian originated .at least so far as this country is concerned which, how ever, contained nothing new, except that 97 1 -2 per cent, of those who were assisted were will ing and eager to work. - Mr. Moore then explained thc Indian apolis, or market plan. This plan in brief ia the establishment of a Food Market in which account hooka were issued to the registered and investigated "unemployed. ' TJ'e beneficiaries signed an agreement that they should do such work as was given them at 12 1-2 cents per hour, skilled laborers to receive higher pay. The beneficiaries were required, whenever practicable, to meet their accounts at the Pood market. Rations were given out in varying propor tions to individuals and families to be accounted for, coal andfuel included. By statistics read Mr. Moore showed that in Indianapolis the Pcod Market plan for about $l!,G0O did more than was done in Washington with SC-l.OCO, the sums ex pended by the central relief committee and the Central Union Mission. XO DETRIMENT TO DEALERS. Mr. Moore further, in relation to the Dis trict plan, caid he was informed by Major Davis that lands on the Potomac flats would not be soon available, and from other Inves tigations he did not think that good lands elsewhere could be easily obtained. Mr. Moore 6ald that the food market, would not in auy way be a detriment to the dealers in provisions in "Washington. Tho plan was adopted after but very little discussion. The Detroit plan was then adopted in the following terms: "Resolved, That the committee on char ities be instructed to receive such lands, ns tho citizens of the District ot Columbia may be willing to give them the use of, 'rom May 1st to November 1st, and let them out to such persons as may be will ing to grow produce on them for that time. "Rebsolved, That an appropriation of S100 be made from tfeu funds of the Board of Trade to aid those who cannot get these for themselves, and that the committee be authorized to receive contributions from the citizens for these purposes." Mr. H. B. P. Macfarland read the detailed report of the committee on charities, the essential object of which is expressed in the following extract: COL. TRACE 1 SUPERFLUOUS. "The office of superintendent of chari ties, costing $3,840 for the next Hsoal year, and which, under the law, can only be filled by a non-resident, is superfluous and should be abolished, as its first incumbent, Prof. Amos G. Warner, a high authority on char ity questions, recommended in its second an nual report. Th proposed board ot chari ties would be abto to do the work which it was intended shduld'be done by tho super intendent or charities, but which has not proved practfcable'for such an officer." Mr. McFarlanU'offered the following for the committee: t ;'- "Resolved, That Congress be asked to aboli&h the office "of Superintendent of Charities for thel.Diflrict of Columbia, and to create a Board, of Charities,, to consist of nine citizens of the District ot Columbia to be appointed-bjHhc Commissioners of the District ot Golumbia, who shall servo without pay, and who shall have the general supervision of all the public chari table work of the District of Columbia, in and out or the institutions receiving aid from the revenues of the District of Colum bia, except those which are strictly cor rectional or educational or which belong to Uie federal government, and the direc tion of permanent and emergency outdoor relief of the destitute." COL. TRACEY SHOULD BE HEARD. Mr. 3088 Perry and Dr. Bovee expressed the opinion that the matter should not be of charities. Dr. Bovee regarded it as an aspersion on the superintendent. Mr. Perry said that it would bo well if thecommittee.whenitwentbefore Congress, i Bhould be prepared with specific allegations. He thought the present proposed disposition of the superintendent summary and radical, although he waB iu favor of a change in the method. Mr. McFarland disclaimed any personal lntcnRon in the matter. It was explained that Col. Tracy had been invited and could not attend. The general opinion expressed was that a good deal of Uie money expended last year had been wasted, and that without Byslem or method. The debate was participated in by those mentioned and by Dr. Ritchie, W.. C. Dodge, Mr. Loring Chappel, Mr. Weston Flinty and others, ALL MATCH. N. W, Corner 7th" and D POLICY-HOLDERS I0ST PAY Beneficial Endowment Association Receivers Ready to Wind' Up. Thoy Ask tho Court to Enlarge Their Powers as Eegards tho Receiving of Duos and Other Matters. Tho Washington Beneficial Endowment Association has come to the last stage or its existence. Its three thousand policy holders will probably begiven notice in a Tew days to settle accounts, all money will lie collected, all property sold, distribution made, books closed. So will end a widely known institution. Messrs. T. M. Fields and Andrew A. Lipsocmb, 'receivers for the business, have been merely custodians of the property without power to receive payments on certificates, even If offered. They yesterday filed a report in which they ask the court to enlarge their powersso that the business may be wound up. They take this action in behalf of the certificate holders and believe the conditions are opportune for a final settlement. They state in the report that thoy have 5uO,00U due on certificates, in addition to 55,000 worth or more of real estate and personalty, including the handsome building No. 419 Tenth 6treet northwest, where the receivers' offices still are. Some or the dues, however, are on certifi cates, three and four years in arrears. They ask that permislson be given them to send thirty-day notices to all certifi cate holders, directing them to pay up their dues. If this payment Is not made within the thirty days they want the authority to drop from the books all who persist in remaining in default. These persons will then be debarred from all benefits rrom the assets of the association. The report says very little progress has Deen made in settling the affairs of the association. This is due to lack or power with the receivers. While many certifi 'cate. holders sre greatly iu arrears, others have paid up iu full to the time or the trans fer to the Commercial Alliance Life In surance Company of New York in August last. Those in arrears are coming in with claims, Just as if they had paid, and Oils is manifestly unrair. It is believed that thirty days' notice to pay up would cause many or these claims to drop orr and relieve the receivers of many items of accounting and litigation. The receivers have uot obtained enough cash from the real estate aud other sources to pay the expenses of the management. They ask that proper allowance be made for olfice expenses ai.d cost of litigation. Tho Commercial Alliauco Company is now making a proposition to accept the $14,000 which they paid to the stockholders or the Bcnoficial Endowment at the time of the trade last August, and in return re lease all claims upou tho Washington organ ization's property. It is understood that manj- of the policy holders object to this on tho ground that the refund should bo made by the stock holders and not taken from the association assets, as proposed.

READ HIS LETTER BELOW. "Washington,, D.C., March 16, 1895. "Dear Dr. Shade: When I placed my wife under your treatment six months ago I little dreamed that a cure would be the re sult, my wife's father, brother and sister having died of the dread disease, Consump tion. You can readily imaginewe had no hope, especially after she was given up by two Washington Specialists. Encouraged, however, by Interviews with people whom you had cured, resulted in a trial of your Chloridum Treatment. You have advised me to have her lungs examined to test the cure, which has been done by our old family physician, who first diagnosed tubercu losis nearly two j-ears ago. He now pro nounces the cure complete. It anysare in clined to be skeptical, as I was, send them to my wife. She will dispel any doubt that may linger in their minds. If you feel so disposed, use this letter. "It. BOWIE HOLLAND, "630 L street ne." DR.
