Insurance George W. Ingham, but
urged Hopewell II. Darneille to work

municipal anhhect as to the valuation

Building at Mr Darnellle's request, nhen
the latter was appraising the property
for the Neva York Insurance department.
Sir Darneille s version of Col. Jud
son's part In the appointment of Ing
ham was particularly Interesting in
iew of Judson's testimony that he
fought the appointment until he was con
vinced that Commissioners Rudolph and
Johnston were determined to make it.
and that he then withdrew hi opposi
tion as a matter of policy, because of
Ingham's relationship with Senator Gal
linger Uiintcs from Com e mat ion.
InKham was appointed in November
and Darneille recalled the date of his
conversation nlth Judson as late in
September In part Mr Darneille a ver
sion of the conversation was as follows:
"I -went in and saw Col Judson He
said 'Darneille. I have Just written a
letter to Senator Oalllngcr in which I
told him I hoped Ingham would be ap

the pressure jou can on Mr Rudolph.
because I am very much afraid he is
not going to bring Mr Ingham s name in
'I think Mr Ingham Is tho logical
man for the appointment as superintend
ent of insurance, and I am verj much In
ior of his appointment.

REPLIES TO SUIT
General Denial f of .Allegations of
Thomas L. Hume Made by the
Washington Gaslight Co.
The Washington Gas tight Company
yesterday made a general denial of all
the material allegations made in the suit
of Thomas L. Hume, who seeks the dis
tribution of 3.S5D shares of Georgetown
Gas Light Company stock among the
stockholders of the former corporation.
Justice Barnard heard arguments on
the motion to appoint a receiver for the
jju snares of stock, and took tho ques
tion under advisement.
Arguments on the merits of the case
were deferred until the Individual de
fendants have filed their answers. The
charge Is made that the suit is not In
stltuted In good faith, and the contention
Is made that the purchase and owner
ship of the 3,530 shares was in accord'
ance with the charter rights of the cor
poration, and that Congress has known
of the transaction since 1907, and has vlr
tuilly approved of the situation.
The claim is advanced that the two
corporations are not essentially rivals or
competitors, and that tho Washington
Gas Light Company manufactures gas at
less cost, and, therefore. Is able to have
cheaper rates than are charged by the
Georgetown corporation. This declara
tion Is made in answer to Mr. Hume's
contention that cheaper rates would be
possible through the co-operation of the
NO SUCH ANIMAL
Anyway, Clerk Sebring, of the Police

Clerk Frank Sebrlng, of the Police

for a citizen of the District to procure
a written permit to carry a revolver In
the streets of Washington for protection
against the thugs and highwaymen, who
have ben terrorizing the National Cap
ital of late, as It is to pass through

Probably the most startling fact re
