NEW CODE OF LAWS WAHTED.
Hie Ktabllimieiit of nn Appellate
Court LIKimlto Favored.
Lawyer Boulc of ItockvllJe, Md.. said
today that he was In favor of the ap
pointment of a mixed commission to be
composed of both lawyers and business
men of the District for tbe purpose of
formulatine a new aode ot laws foe the
District to be submitted to Congress.
Mr. nouic, like a good many lawyers
la the District, is la favor of the es
tablishment of an Appellate Court. He
gives as one reason for this that, as the i
decision of the Supreme Court of tbe
District is final where tbe litigation of
property to the value of ?3,WJ is In
volved, that there ought to be an
Appellate Court to which such decision
couhl be taken. An appeal can only be
taken to the United States Supreme

MOB'S SCANBALOUS TRIATKMT OF
Til CLAIMS OF WORKUrfMUS,
Their Interests Kntlrrtj- Jentirftf y
OWnterSM The OoramlttM on Uami
Cannot Oet n tlenrtntr.
AWfor Critie: TO yon give m a
mtte space In yowt TlWe paper to
make an Inqwiry ami statemeni fa rela
tion to matters of lutBrBSt to a large nm
ber of the worWnemen of Washington
and the country generally. First. Why
is it that of all the comrMtteas in Don
grws the Committee on Labor should
be Ignored? Congress has now been In
session about ilgM months and mrt ,me
hour bae been given the Labor Com
millet of the Uone in which teem
sider bills reported by it. I have ursde
trequent inquires of the chairman of the
Committee on Labor In regard to the
matter ami have Invariably been told
that tbe mailer rested entirely will) the
Speaker, ami that he had promised him
from time to time that be wohM give
bis committee a chance to consider Its
bills, bnt promises don'tseem to amount
to anytiiiDg not even an hour yet.
Now what does it all meanr- Are the
laboring classes to be
by this Congress, antl if so, whvT The
rules of the House provide tb'at there
shall be one hour set apart every morn
ing for the call of commltteos, fu wblnll
each committee as It Is called sbnll buvd
the right to consider bills reported by
It, ami In eight months there have-been
but tbltteen days In which these titles
have been observed ami the committees
Within tbe liut ten days tbe Commit
tee on the Judiciary has been liunnwt
over the Committee oo Labor and irlven
four days, when it had already bnd two
out of the thirteen and tbe Committee on
Labor not an' hour. Is this fair to tho
worklngmen and masses of tho common
people who have bills pending which
the business men of tho mmitnt vn
- . ,.. v. ...w -,.un, ,,,,. r uil
that these blllssbould not be considered,
for wu all believe they sliould be; they
are before tbe country and It Is perfectly
right that Ibey should be considered
and disposed of. But why was It nec
essary to crowd out the Commlttoo on
Labor for this purpose? Could not tho
Speaker give this committee
ONE LITTLE nOCIt?
Why iliouMthg Judiciary havn six days
and tbo Labor Committee not even oao
i repeat, Is this fair to tbo working
people? Aro legislative days so pro
clous that only the rich and thu groat
hould have them? What benefit to
unjone Is Iba Comrniltec on Labor If It
isnivertobchcard. If It Is to be en
tirely Ignored as It ha been by this
Conercss so fnrf The bills repartcd by
It arc Important bills. Talte for In
stance the bill for tho adjustment of the
accounts of laborers, workmen and me
chanics under the Klein-Hour law.
1 hi has been pending In Congress for
the last eight years, in which time
there have been ten favorablo reports,
ami not one against It. and It has p.isscd
the Senate once. This bill proposes to
reur the claimants to the Court of
Clsline. with tbo rlhtof appeal to the
the Supreme Court of tho United
Slates thu disputed question as to
whether, under what is commonly
known as tbo "Eight-Hour law,
laborers, workmen and raoobanles
employed by the Government slnee the
pauogc of that law, arc entitled to a
full nrlce of a tlnv's work tnr oiui.i
hours' rervJce. Our richt to this la dr..
puted by tbo agents or tbe tTovernment
who hired us. Wa insist that we are
entitled to It and ask Congress to allow
us to submit tho question to the oourts
with the bar of the statute oriimlta
lions removed, and as a part of our caw
we submit the-feflowinrr order which
, Nivv Ubiathent.

For omo months Ballev has been
living with his sister, Mts. JnHa Slftm

ent moods, and he has frequently
threatened to commit suicide. Some
months ago he came from Charles
County, Md . where lie has been living
Those who know him best say that
for over twenty years he has bwti wot
rylng over a love affair. In 1900 he
was engaged to tbe daughter of a well
known Maryland family just out of her
teens. A Northern officer two years
later captured the girl and married her.
Kver since that time Bailey has been
despondent. An Investigation was

THE BUILDING MARKET DULL.
Architect Have Very Little to Do
Tliee Summer Diij-s,
Building affairs and real estate matter
are In a very quiet condition at present,
as usual during tbe summer season.
The building permits Issued by tho In
epector of buildings show that oompir
ativcly few private dwellings are
being erected, although several large
iHiiuiiogs io uo uteu as stores aro now
building on F street nnd Its vicinity.
Knlorama Heights, however, Is still en
joying a quiet boom, and Is becoming it
l'lnco of fashionable Toslilenac.
Mr. O. von Ncttcr, tho well-known F
slrcet architect, has completed plans
for a row of six stone-front bouiosf, to
bo creeled on Kalorama Heights, for
Mr. Albort GIobsou at n cost of 1 40,000.
Mr, von Nettcr thinks that real cstnto
matters are very dull, evan for tills
lime of tho year. Building affairs ware
much more active at this time lait
year thnn at present. Business teems
to bo equally dull with other ar
chitects, but ailnlrs arc expected
to rosumo their usual activity
In tbe fall. Mauyof the architects aro
drawing up nlans for residences anil
other buildings In southern Virginia.
In fact, almost all tho plans for build
ings In Virginia and tho northern patt
of North Carolina arc propared by
Dr. Motion Denies tbo Vbarccs.
The Guy trial has boon continued
until Monday, but Dr. Mohun, whoso
nntnc was used In uvidonco yesterday by
Sergeant Burgess declares positively
that bo was novor In the employ of the
LouiIauB Lottery Company. The Doc
tor Is employed at tho workhouse ami

to controvert Sergeant Burgose' testi

Mrs. Dnvall was seen by a Crsmc re
