OFFICIALS FAIL TO ACT.
Tenement House Commission Says
It Can't Stop Violations.
No effort was made yesterday by either the
Tenement House Commission or the Bureau of
Buildings to bring about a bettering of condi

At the coroner's liiqueet on Monday on the re
cent fire la a tenement "house at No. 164 At
tomey-st-. In which fourteen persona lost th.
lives, both departments were severely censured.
Coroner Scholer declared that each relied on the
other to do the necessary work.
It is notorious that fire escapes in the crowded
sections of the Bsjsjt Side are almost never in
condition to afford ready egress. They are used
an storehouses by the tenement house dwellers.
Many of them are boarded over so that the
rhlidren may have a playground off the street.
Flower pots. Ice croam freezers, baby carriages,
trunks and what not are stored there. Many
tenement house dwellers use their fire escapes
tut a place on which to store the scrap wood
•which the children gather.
On many East Side buildings the fire escapes
ewe insecurely fastened. A battalion chief of
th« Fire Department, on a rc.'<i!it tour of in
spection, saw a. fire escape which appeared to

to keep the fire escapes clear. Th.- officials said
that on every fire escape was posted -what Is
known as an encumbrance glen. This warns
the ter.ants that they are liable to a $10 toe if
they encumber the fir« narspr . They said ihat
there was no special inspection to see that th«
ordinance was enforced. If a tenement house

BAKERS BEGIN STRIKE.
Three Hundred — More May
Stop Work To-day.
TThU« an agitation is in progress among the
I'skfrr' unions for the. ecforcement of the ten
Jiour law in bakeries, the employers have refused
to renew the agreement sralea expired last week,

Thifc is looked on by the unions as a declaration
for the open Shi and a strike was started yes
ferflay for recognition of th«» union and for the
enforcement of th* ten hour law. About three hun
dred bakers went eat in the upper West Side and

Manhattan Is looked for to-day and to-morrow.
The ten hour law was declared constitutional

that the court will declare the. law unconstitutional,

tppolnted a special commissioner by judge Holt.
At the hearings it was trident that the Chinese
witnesses were not telling the truth. All the China
men present admitted that the American form of
«iath was not, and never would be. binding to a
CMTMmwn on the witness stand. It was agreed
that if the orthodox Chinese oath was administered
the witnesses tvould not dare to fabricate. Acting
« n this suggestion, Edward Lewis Garvin. attorney
for the trustees, applied for and obtained permis
sion from Mr. Alexander, also from Peter B. Ol
r>ey. who waa later appointed referee in the case,
to administer the Chinese form of oath.
Yesterday was chosen as the day, 3 p. m. as the
time and Mr. Olney's office as the place for th»
ceremony, which la unique In Its details, to say the
least. A short document In Chinese is presented to
tfte nrst witn*a«. which he reads. At the same time
he places his hand on the head of a live chicken.

t **ufles in Chines*-, through an Interpreter, who
1 es been previously sworn by the referee. That he
will speak the truth, the whole truth and nothing
Put the truth, is a foregone conclusion, after this

Postoffice Employe's Lawyer Declares There
Was No Crime in Shortage, However.
Henry O. Buckley, formerly superintendent of the
Flatbush branch of the Brooklyn Postofflce. who
disappeared on July 11, leaving a shortage of about
$uOO in his accounts, pleaded guilty in the United
States District Court, Brooklyn, yesterday. His
counsel stated that, while his client had been
guilty of failing to handle government moneys as a
prudent man should, it was a question if he had
really committed a crime, even though a shortage
had been found in his account. For that reason
counsel asked Judge Thomas to be merciful. The
latter stated he would pass sentence next Monday.
Buckley returned voluntarily on August 4 and
surrendered himself At first he tiled a demurrer
to the Indictment, but was allowed to withdraw
that and plead guilty yesterday. It was stated that
Buckley's bondsmen had repaid Th-! government for
the shortage and that lie had reimbursed the

Knickerbocker Steamboat Company
Turns Vessel Over to One.
A conrt order was entered yesterday directing the
Knickerbocker Steamboat Company to transfer to
United Suites Commissioner Alexander, as trustee,
all its right, title and Interest In and to the Steam
boat General Siocum, Including her freight for the
final voyage, for the benetit of nil claimants against
the company The freight will be Interpreted to
mean the money paid by the passsngers. amounting
to about tLSOO.
Shortly after the Slocum disaster a number of
■wits for damitgps. amounting in all to several hun
£r«<! thousand dollars, were Hied ngainst the com
pany by individuals whose relatives were lost. The
company sought to limit its liability, as provided by
law, to the value of the hull, cargo and freight
money aa estimated at the end of the vessel's final
voyage. This Is on the assumption that the steam
boat was in every way seaworthy and that its
owners had faithfully cum pi led with all the require
ments of the government at the time of her leaving
her pier on the final voyage. The claimants In this
instance will contend that th<*Knlokerbocker com
pany tad not complied with the legal requirements
and that the Slorum was not seaworthy.
That the company 1 liability might be fixed defi
nitely an application was made by the company to
the federal courts to declare Its liability, contend
ing: that the value of th« wreck did not exceed
16,000. Against the Siocum th« petition stated,
' ere existed the claim of the Merritt-Chapman
Wrecking Company for raising the wreck, which
had precedence over all other claims.
The court, In appointing Commissioner Alexander
as trustee, did not order the company discharged
from all further contingent liability, as asked.

U. S. RESERVATION FOR WILD FOWL.
President Acts to Stop Slaughter of Ducks
by Pot Hunters.
Washington, Oct. 4.— At the request of Secretary
Hitchcock. President Roosevelt to-day signed an
order setting aside three Islands near the mouth
of tho Mississippi River its a government reserva
tion. The order was made to curtail the killing of
ducks and other wild fowl by pot hunters. The
reservation, which Is to be known as the Breton
Reservation, will be turned over to the Agricultural
Department as a breeding ground for native wild
fowl, to which the Islands are admirably adapted.
Tha Islands— Breton, Old. Harbor, and a third, near
by— are Just north of the mouth of the Mississippi
off the 1 lOuisiana coast. Market hunters have
killed on these islands as many as 300.000 ducks In
one season. The wholesale slaughter of the birds.
If allowed to continue, would soon result in ex
tinct!., on the Gulf.

THE hospitable, genuinely comfortable appearance of Colonial FuiniA
-*■ ture is proverbial.
Designers of Eighteenth Century Furniture have not been superseded
by latt r Artists. Time has proven the correctness and hallowed the beauty
of the simple, restful, "homelike" productions of Chippendale, Sheraton^
Hepplewhite and a score of less noted, but almost equally great Designers. ,
One never tires of Colonial shapes — and the finish and lustre retain
their appearance permanently. J
