doesn't like the look of the Govern

Birnigui iiua ihubcijijcti vi mi i-u-
lng of Hotel street
When the difficulty first presented it-
self.ofirunnlng foul of the'Ltbrary por-
tli,' 'Mr. Dodge says, It was not
thought to bo. a serious one, as at little
expense the cntranco could ho ocess
fced and made Just as presentable as It
Is with the portico.
With a ow strokes on a piece" 6f pa
per Mr. Dodgo shows -howy on tho
small and publicly untenable 'pretext of
saving tho Library portico, ilia amend
ed street line has to be put wrong tome
distance from the corner1 of Al)kca
v street, perpetually robbing the public
a of the full Improvement ordered by the
Legislature. Jtc together with others
.heard from, cannot conceive by what
. authority Governor Dole should Inter
fere with the operation of nn Act of tha
Not only Is the, action of tho exern
tlvepalpably unlawful, but It arrears
'altogether In the light of sclf-f Unifi
cation, on tho part of the Government,
Cases are recent where the Oovoruirent
refused toiaccept new streets laid out
hy prjvate dcvclopers.accordlng to tho
regular prn'ctlce, because they .'lid not
come up to tho requirements of fifty
six feet In width. Now, althbugh It U
not found expedient to widen this old
street In question to more than fifty
feet, hero comes In the Government It
self to scrimp even that Improvement
by ns much as four feet at tho Library
comer, and by a diminishing strip
back, for a distance of about fifty
yards, to the point where the dul'
legislated new lino Is departed from.
Apart from looks and under ordinary
circumstances, this detlectlon from a
right lino might perhaps be regarded
as Immaterial I)ut MrDodge would
like to remind tho public that tho elec
tric cars are going to run through Ho
tel street, which Is already accounted
to hae n congested traffic on frequent
occasions, and when this begins not
four feet, but n few inches, may often
prove to be the 'margin between the
safe passing of 'vehicles nnd disaster. It
ls'scttlcd that-the electric cars arc go
ing that way. nnd tho Government
knows It. because the Rapid Transit
Co. has bought the right of waj;
through the theological seminary

a Chinese storo almost opposlfe the
uuniplng plant, was In flames. Tb
engines were not long In getting to tho
scene but, oven so, the flames had al
ready spread to the threo other stores
that formed a sort of block and the
whole place was In flames.
The firemen saw that tho stores
could not bo saved and so turned their
attention to the cottages dlicctly back
of tho burning buildings, the Tramcar
Co.'s stables and storehouses nnd thu
Chinese store opposite. Had It not
been for them, the last named plaro
would surely have caught fire. The
car stables were not Injured In tho
least, although every man was on hand
to ward off danger. Foreman AndraJc
states, that tho Advertiser was com
pletely "oft" In Its statement that tiro

three times. Not a thing was touched
by tho flames. Andrade tells (he fol

No one BeemB to know Just how tho

that tho cause was tho overturning of

not very great as tho stores wero only

FOR LEGISLATIVE ACTION
Do Away With Citizens Guard
Change in Laws Nece3sary-Board
of Health and Attorney 'Gen
Atorncy General 13. P. Dole presented
his annual report of his department to
the Governor this morning. Tho lea 1
Ing features ure as follows:
Tho biennial i appropriation, -for Hid
expenses of the department was IS.13.-
711X0. Tho pro rata amount for tho
)ear Just drawing to' u close' helLg
1317,857.25. The expenses of the de
partment for this jear (those of tho
current month being estlmntcd) livvu
been J279.5U0.1O. or I38.3IC.85 less
than the amount authorized to Tie
spent. As soon as a report of the cur
rent month can bo made up, I will add
hereto a tabulated statement bt'all ex
penditures. The expenses of plnguo and Arti and
tho loss of revenue from the custom
hnuso nnd from other sources, amount'
ing to some 11,400,000 or $1,500,000 a
year, render Intelligent- economy Im
perative, and It .is tho harder to attain
because extraordinary prosperity has
fostered luylsh habits In publlaas we'l
Is In private affairs. At tho same time.
the cost of tho grand Jury system re
quired by the constitution , of the
United States, and tho Increase of
crime Incident to rapid growthundcr
new conditions, and the rising prices ot
prlson'and'other supplies make it ox
trenieh- difficult to. avoid a large In
crease of legitimate expenditure. The
?nct"that tho department hiSi Kept
nearly $40,000 Inside .of appropriation
Is due to the efficiency nnd honesty of
tho high schrlff, deputy high sheriff.
sheriffs, Jailor and other subordinate
officials who wero left to me, n legacy
by my able and honored predecessors
In office. I think It Is possible not only
to keep well within present appropria
tions, but oven to reduce them by some
$18,000, without detriment to tho ser
vice. The InBt biennial appropriation fo
detcctlve services wns $13,000. I he
llcvo thnt tho methods sometimes
adopted'by Informers aro moro cor
rupting to public morals than the of
fenses they aro used to suppress, and
that they nro, at best, a necessary evil
to be used sparingly, I recommend that
tho aproprlatlon be reduced from
(13.000 to J0.G0O.
I recommend the same appropriation
ns heretofore for tlio support and main
tenance of prisoners.
Tho segregation ofjong term pris
oners lessens the cost lot guarding
them. Tho nppronVlatlon'for this py
poso can bo, Bafcly reduced $5,000.
The last Legislature provided that
coroners' jurors, who, until recently,
had been compelled to servo without
pay, should bo paid $2.00 a day. I
think It prudent to recommend that
tho appropriation for the ensuing two
years bo Increased ft thousand dollarn.
The grand Jury system Is much more
cumbersome and expensive than thn
old procedure. Under tho Constitution
of tho United States and the Organic
Act, offenses punishable by Imprison
ment for moro than ono year or bylosa
of civil rights can bo prosecuted only
unon Indictment by a grand Jury. I
recommend that loss of civil rights be
confined to offenses riunlBhablo by Im
prisonment exceeding ono year, anJ
that most offenses heretofore punish
able by Imprisonment not exceeding
two ears he mado punishable by Im
prisonment not exceeding ono year.
Section 684 of tho Penal Laws o:
1897, providing that district magis
trates shall have Jurisdiction for tho
prosecution, trial and sentence to pun
ishment of any person whero tho pun
ishment prescribed does not exceed Im
prisonment at hard labor for two years,
Is in conflict with tho Constitution ot
tho United States nnd the Organic Act
of tho Territory. I recommend that
the law, as It appears In our local sta
tutes, bo amended In conformity with
what It nctually Is, as changed by
United States authorities, giving dis
trict magistrates Jurisdiction for tho
prosecution, trial and Bontenco to pun
ishment of nnv nerson whero tho pun
Ishmcnt prescribed doeB not Invohe
loss of civil rights, und does not author
ize Imprisonment at hard labor ex
ceeding one year, with or without fluo.
I also recommend that district magis
trates havo Jurisdiction, with tho ap
proval "f the prosecuting ofllcer, to
tako pleas ot guilty whero thu maxl-
vniini penalty for the ntTense i hnrged I
Imprisonment nt hard labor hot ox
deeding two years, and to sentence th
accused mi his plea of guilty to Itu
prlsoninent nt hard lalxir not exceeding
uno year, with or without fine ns tho
law may require, and without loss ol
llefore the bubonic plague, when
there was a full treasury, plans and '
tlmntes for n new prison were male

feel Justified '.In recommending any
