“UNCLE SYD’S” IDENTITY
IS NOW REVEALED
The advertisement of the mix-up of
hand bags, in which Miss Henkel, of
Baltimore, and some one unknown to
1 her but whose personal effects in the
i bag named him as “Uncle Syd,” had
ithe usual desired result by bringing
each owner through publication in
these columns, his and her personal
property and possessions.
In the meantime the Identity of
"Uncle Syd” has been revealed. He
is Dr. Sydney Starlings, who resides
with his mother, Mrs. Ella C, Starlings,
183 Green street, and is assistant pro
feasor at the Preparatory School for
candidates at the Natal Academy,
taught by his brother, Prof. A. Knox
Starlings. Mr. Starlings was holding
on to the handbag of the lady which
he picked up in mistake for his own
while leaving the car, a day or two
ago, and was more than pleased to re
turn it and get his own in exchange
which was accomplished through the
ad. in the Capital. Both Miss Henkel
and Mr. Starlings were returning from
New York, and their luggage was side
by side in the car aisle, each picking
up the wrong bag. Had it not been for
the little card marked “‘Uncle Syd.’

Toronto won 93 and lost 57, and h&i a

r K. OF C. PROTEST NEW
CAMP POLICY OF THE
Xtument To Oast Welfare Organisa
tions At romps And Military
The Knights of Columbus Commit
tee on War Activities have gone on
1 record to protest the movement started
' t by the War Department which would
1 oust ail welfare organizations in their
work about the camps and military
' reservations, and put such work in the
1 hands of the army authorities. Just
1 how the Knights stand in their at
titude towards this project of the gov
i ernment developed at a recent meet
ing of the committee held at the Cop
* ley Square Hotel, Boston, Mass. Their
’ protest came in reply to a suggestion
from Col. Jason S. Joyce, executive of
-1 fleer of the Commission on Training
r Camp Activities of the War Depart
ment. Col. Joy wanted to know what
* the viewpoint of the Knights of Col
r umbus was in regard to “the cessation
of ail activities in the camps bv wel
fare societies, to be succeeded by the
! army officials.”
In reply, the following statement
’ was quickly forthcoming from the K.-
1 “To tell Col. Joy that the Knights
’ of Columbus stand today, as always,
ready to comply with any order of his
Commission representing the War Lc
-1 partnient, including, of course, *he
; withdrawal of all var activities in the
’ camps. If, however, it is the int a n-
J tion of the Department to ask the wiii
| drawal Knights of Columbus and all
other war agencies within the camps,
we feel that we ought to state our
position on the broad question involv
ed, namely as to the conduct in the
future of all welfare, recreational and
; educational work by the War Depart
ment as a part of its regular work.
We arc opposed to any attempt to in
stitutionalize the activities heretofore
conducted by the so-caled War Welfare
societies. From our experience we
can say that the men in serv
ice welcome a relief from war super
vision and military methods. They
welcome the relief and willingly re
spond -to the services of \civilians to
whom they owe no special duty of
military deference and obedience. It
is a relief from the restraint of of
ficial supervision for them to receive
a touch of home life and neighborly
assistance within the camps. The
service in spiritual matters by outside
ministers, rabbis, and priests, has also
been a grateful relief from military
life. Ready to leaveHhe service, is fo
ordered, we never the less wish to
record our protest against the propos
ed new policy and feel that the action
of Congress in refusing funds asked
for these purposes by the War Depart
ment, the very willing contribution of
the public for the maintenance of this
work by welfare societies, the hearty
response and appreciation of the men
in the service, the very inherent con
trast between military rule-and discip
line and recreational and educational
work at the hands- of friendly civil
ians all speak against the taking over
of this work by the army as one of its
BARN AND CONTENTS

Only 1,600 Baltimore Excursion
ists Made Jaunt Yesterday
COOL WEATHER, CAUSE
With a party, smaller than has
marked any affairs of the like in pre
vious years, the Tolchester Steamboat
Company gave the annual “Jumbo**
excursion from Baltimore to Annapo
The crowd of excursionists number
ed only 1,600, and all of those were
taken care of aboard the steamer
Louise, and then the big. popular ves
sel had plenty of room to spare. The
steamer Emma Giles and Annapolis,
were laying by at their Baltimore
piors, ready to take care of the pos
sible overflow, but of course, their
services were not needed.
In some of the years gone by, as
many as four steamers of tho com
pany have been required to bring the
great throng of excursionists who
take in this close-of-the-scason, and
half fare trip, bringing as many as
5,000 persons to the city. The cool
weather perhaps was largely respon
sible for the small crowd that made
the jaunt yesterday. However the
Baltimoreans seemed to enjoy the trip.
They took In the sights of the State
House and other points of interest In
the city, but were denied admission to
the Naval Academy grounds, as the' , i
war-time regulations against visitors
entering the reservation, are still be
ing enforced. The Louise arrived at
the Tolchester Company’s dock, foot
of I’rince George street, shortly be
fore 4 o’clock and left for the return
trip to Baltimore at 5.J0.
The steamer Dreamland, also bear
ing a party of excursionists, came in
to the harbor soon after the arrival
of the Louise. She did* not land, how
j ever. Instead, she steamed as far as
itho station ship Itelna Mercedes at the
j Naval Academy, turned around, and
| proceeded out of tho river.
The profiteer continues to hold his
[ own, and a good bit besides.
