NEW BUILDINGS NEEDED.
Vmlmis Mntlnri i,r futures! In tlio Cltl
70IIH of tin, Illstilct.
Iho Dlstitct Commissioners havo sub
mitted their eighth annual report to tho
President. Tho principal subjects touched
lu tho report nro tho recommendations for n
new District building, an Incrc.iso of Ilia
pollco force, higher llecnsos to sell liquor
and tho need of legislation regarding steam
inlliuails lu Hie city.
A NHW lllSTlttOT llUlI.MNU.
Tho construction of a suitable building
for tho District ofllccs, tho Commissioners
say, should bo commenced nt tho earliest
dato possible. They quolo tho locom
Herniations of Captain tlieeno In his re
port to tho Engineer Commissioner, lu
which ho says:
Tbo present headquarters aro In nverv way
utiniltnlile. Tbeynru very toinbiHllblo nud
nrollnblotn budetroyed by llro wltlinll thu
records contained lu them nt any momont.

iUcoufort of (ho Inmates, but seriously In

neiessnrj- lu xomo of tho rooms nt till houM,
nnd re crnl of thoclrrkihivo had their eye-
Burnt t-iiiiuiiuiiuy uijiirru inuiciJ).
Tbo Commissioners say that lu Ilko man
ner tho Inspector of BulldliiL's has urimd
upon them from jcar to year, nnd especially
In his report of lbS2, tbo necessity of a fire
pioof building. They quote from his re
port as follows:
Thrro nro twenty-four room, four of which
nro of flro-roof construction nml moil for
storncoof records. Hovenor the room-) nro
located In tlio centre of tlio building. Imlmt
no Hclit except from tho smnll Unlit welN.nud
mo thcreforoof nousons ofllccs, lo.ivlng but
fourteen rooms to bo occupied, Tho number
of rerions occupied In theso fourteen rooms
Is nidi ty-four. In these fourteen rooms nro
stored all tbo books, mnp drawlng-i, measure.
uicnts, receipts nnd requisition', Bpeolnl nnd
(teiieral assesiincnt books; lu fact, nearly nil
of tho locorua slneo tlio Iloaid of Public
Works. This biilldlngwasorlglmilly Intcndod
for n dwelling, nud was built throughout ol
Ill regard to tho other buildings rented
for District ofllccs they eny tho Health ofllco
nud Pollco Headquarters nro located In nil
Joining buildings of Inferior construction
to the .Morrison building; nnd It seems con
clusive that, In Jtistlco to tho property-owners,
tho rccoids should bo placed In a moro
sultablo building at tho earliest possible
dato nud sultablo oillccs provided for tho
steadily-Increasing business of tho Dlstilct.
An appropriation can now bo made, they
claim, without diverting tho available
rove nucs of tho District from any moro Im
portant application, and accordingly mi esti
mate for commencing tho building li.n this
year been submitted $12.1,000.
Tho report says about this branch of tho
District Government that it deservos
much credit for cfllclcncy and good disci
pline. Tbo number of the forco Is, In tho
opinion of tho Commissioners, Inadequate
for tho scrvico required, aud tboy havo
thcrcforo submitted estimates for II ttecu ad
ditional men of class ono, which docs not
exceed tho number limited by law.
Tho Commissioners say that tho laws ro-
gaidlng tho salo of spirituous and fermen
ted liquors aro so loosely drawn that all tho
restrictions Intended to bo tmpolcd upon
their traffic aro easily evaded, and tho li
censes Issued under them aro constantly so
used as to encourago drunkenness andlu
crcaso crimo nud disorder.
On tho subject of "steam rallwsys In tho
city," they recommend
First, so far as practicable tho B. fc O.
and tho B. t P. Railroad companies should
enter nnd pass through tho city on substan
tially the samo lines.
Second, tho principal passenger depot
should bo a union building, or composed of
two Independent buildings adjoining each
Third, this depot should bo centrally lo
cated and conveniently leached from tho
Fourth, sultablo provision should bo
mado for handling fi eight nnd otherwise
meeting tbo reqiiliemeuts of n well regu
lated railroad without undcrljlngtho ad
Fifth, provision should bo made to avoid
to tho greatest extent possible street cross
ings. Tho two roads might bo allowed to
placo their main depot In tho vicinity of tho
present B. & P. Depot, to bo reached by
covered tracks leaving Virginia avenue, be
tween Sixth nud Seventh streots. Tho tracks
on Sixth street should bo removed.
It will bo difficult to select a depot site
that will better nccomuiodnto tho traveling
public, citizens of tho District, as well ns
Its numerous visitors.
Under this designation Is Included tho
almshouse and workhouse. Theso Institu
tions aio different hi their character, being
Included In ono enclosure aud
placed under ono superintendent.
These two institutions should bo separated
as they undoubtedly ought to bo. For
many years tho two institutions wero under
tbo samo roof, tho poor, lullrm and diseased
belug separated from tho vagrants and tho
disorderly by a conldor only,
Tho school trustees again ask for a larger
appropriation than tlio Commissioners fool
warranted lu approving. To meet tho de
mands they again recommend tho salo of all
Dlstilct leal eot.ito no lougcr useful,
Tho Commissioners again rcnow their
suggestions that as tho public expenditures
for charity nro urge It would seem to bo ex
pedient to appoint nn officer to devote his
uuio iu luai tervico,
Tlio Commissioners approvo the sug
gestion of tho Health Officer, (hat future
coutiacts for tho removal of garbage should
Include tho removal of ashes. Attention Is
Invited to tho gradual oxtenslou of soil
pollution, especially In tho suburbs.
Tho Commissioners especially ask n favor
ablo consideration of Chief Cronln's recom
mendation that a lingo llro cugliiobo kept
in reservo lu the ccntiul portion of tho city
for occasions when an eugliiu moio power
ful than nn ordinary one Is required.

A question ngltntlng tho minds of many
of tbo Congressmen Is tho proposition to
cut down tlio powots of tho regular Appro
priations Commilleo of tho Houso. No
doubt thero will bo qullo a hrcczo when
tbo matter Is brought before tho Houso. It
may bo that Iho Dcmociats, who are In a
largo majority, may scttlo tho question lu
Iho caucus. By many tho movement his
been looked upon ns n light ngalnst .Mr.
Randall, becauso of tlio fact that FreoTrado
nnd Revenue itcform Democrats havo been
Inclined to tho belief that the Pennsylvania
Protectionist Is lu n position tn ret-ird legis
lation, and tn tlm ait tho olTorts to bring
about tariff reductions. .Mr. Randall,
should n very stout ntt.ick bo tn.ido upon
him, could count on rather n healthy Dem
ocratic support, to say nothing of tho Re
publicans who might como In lilt rescue,
not fiom nny love for .Mr. llmdall. but Tor
the causo ho represents. Tho matter Is de
cidedly mixed, and many Interesting views
of Congressmen have already been given on
Colonel James N. Ilurncs, ono of tho .Mis
souri lleprcsentatlvcs, a prominent member
of Iho Appropriations Coinnilttco Inst ses

glvo his views on tho question, sild, In sub
stance: "It will bo n cold day for tho Dem

llo then went on to fIiow that by taking
away tbo powers of tho coinnilttco ns pro

dla(o effect of gteatly swelling (ho expendi

committee champions Its appropriation bill
aud iimgnillcs tho needs of Its special
f ci vice. It Is my opinion that It would boa
gieat political blunder to make Iho chango
pioposcd. Our appropriations nro In tho
nature of a budget, nud they must bo mado

Is strong, but I think tlio political danger

There nro others, however, who do not
agree wlthJCoIonel Burnes, but claim that

Tho Republican Senatorial caucus met at
tho Capitol promptly at 12 o'clock today,
ns announced, for action In regard to the
Presidency of tho Sennlo. Thoso present
Included every Republican Senator In Iho
rlt-, Tho caucus was In session Just nu
hoiii'. Tlio Hist new s that came from It was tlio
fact that Senator Logan bad been tendere 1
Iho nomination for tho Presidency of tho
Scnatonnd Unit ho had declined It. It was
nllerwttid learned that the caucus was
colled to order by Senator Shormm; that
.Mr. Logan was placed In uoinliiillim by
Senator Edmunds, mid that ho received tlu
unanimous voto of thu caucus.
Senator Logan then mndo a speech, re
turning Ihniiks for tho honor prollerol, but
positively declining lo accept it. Tho Sena
tors were very careful alter the caucus
about talking on tho subject of what hid
been done, It having been agreed Hi it Sena
tor Sherman, ns chuirin in, should prepare a
ftatcmeiit of the proceedings for Iho benefit
of the press. To (In this lu n tiniiuer satis
factorily to himself, ho Immediately shut
himself up lu his loom, and sent word out
bj his messenger that the statement would
1 e ready nt 2 o'clock-.
Tlio other Senators lelttbo entlf-o matter
In bis hands, therefore, nml Ills statement,
which appealed lu tlmo us follows, may bo
r.icepted nsthonlhebil reeonl nf tho caucus:
linmeillatily upon Ilia meeting of the
caucus Suiator Edmunds nioso lu his place
and stated that when hist summer nycar
nro tho Republicans of tlio nation,
iu tliclr convention, nominated (leu
rral Logan for Vice-President, ho (.Mr.
Edmunds) bad thought It right toward (Isn
cial Logan nud tow aid tho pirty, tint ho
should letliu fiom the Presidency of tho
Senate nnd that General l.o.in should ho
chosen In his place, nud, ns tlicy nil remem
bered, ho had communicated that opinion
and desire to Republican Senators lu for
mal way, but It was thought best at that
tlmo that thu change bu not mule,
especially ns General Logan did not wlh It
to bo made. At the election General Log.ui
had received, bo believed, tlio votes of all
the Republicans who had tho opportunity
to vote, and camo veiy mar being Ihuelmleo
of tbo people for tlio oillco of Vljo-Prcsl-ilent.
In this stnto nf things ho thought It right
that tho Republican Scuatnis should renew'
their expression of (onfldciico lu General
Logan by nominating him for President of
the Senate, mid ho accordingly moved that
(icticinl Logan bo so nominated by accla
mation. Sevciul Senators fpoko brieflly lu favor of
tho nomination and iho question was taken
and agreed to unanimously. Senator Login
then rosn and In n brief spech of thinks de
clined the honor tendered him, on tho
ground Unit thu pluco was not
to bis tasle, and ho believed ho could better
servo Ids constituents by remaining In his
present place iu tlio ranks. Ho had consid

succeeded In securing n numerical victory
through tho voto of newly enfranchised

stituents nil over England. Tho suicidal
folly of such nn argument ns this ucodj mi
pointing out, but It wilt doubtless please
the lino old crusted Tories, who nro tho solo
iintronsof tbo (inzrlle. Tho Carlton Club
bus sent forth a circular ndvlslng tho Torlei
lo cxpliilti their defeat, in follows:
"T lie v letorlcs of the Liberals In tho earlier
county elections disturbed Pnrnell's plans.
He feiircd that, despite his old to tho Tories,
the Liberals would obtain n majority which
would make them Independent of him.
Therefore ho sought to hedge, llo sent
loiters to tho Liberals standing for tho re
maining county divisions, offering to swine
tho Irish voto over to them If tlicy would
glv e pledges to ndvocnto and voto for Homo
Rule for Ireland. Tbo candidates, Umbel

ors wero left unlnstruclod ns to how thoy
should vote, and they did not voto nt all.

avenged himself on tlio Tory party for the
alleged bad faith which tho Tories displayed
toward him nt Liverpool."
Tho few Piirnclllte lenders now In Lon

Tory lie, and declare that It has not even
the merit of Ingenuity. Tlio Liberals on
shrieking with delight over the defeat of
Sir Mutthew V. Ridley In tho Hexham

was tho Political Secretary of tbo Homo De

Its chorus begins, "Wo counties are com
