Deputy Chief Andrew J. Sullivan, of
the fire department, will be given a pub
lic hearing before the Commissioners
Thursday morning at 10 o'clock.
Yielding to the clty-wlde demand, ex
pressed by numerous petitions of fire
men and prominent citizens In all walks
of life, and by the press, the District
Commissioners yesterday made this an
nouncement. Commissioner Elddons, at
the conclusion of a "star chamber" probe
Into the recent American Five and Ten
Cent Store fire. Informed Deputy Chief
Sullivan eleven days ago that a. request
for retirement with pension would be
welcomed by the Commissioners.
Comrulaalonera' Statement.
The announcement of the hearing was
contained In a statement by the Commis
sioners as follows:
"Upon consideration of the aDDllcatlon
of Deputy Chief Andrew J. Bulllvan, of
the fire department.' for a public hear
ing on the circumstances of his part In
the management of the fire at the Five
and Ten Cent S,tore on December 24. In
which fire firemen nearly lost their lives,
the Commissioners have determined to
hold such a hearing. In the board room
at the District Building, beginning at 10
o'clock a. m. Thursday.
"Acting upon Information adduced In
an Inquiry conducted for the Board of
Commissioners by Commissioner SIddons,
the board, through Commissioner Sid
dons, ten days ago suggested to Mr. Sul
livan that if he would apply for retire
ment on the pension allowed by law it
would be ordered. Mr. Sullivan responded
to this suggestion by requesting a pub
lic healing, which the Commissioners to
day decided to hold, for the purpose of
enabling Mr. Sullivan to present any ad
dltional information he may have. It
any. which should be In the possession
of the Commissioners before they take
final action on the question of responsi
bility for the Injury and narrow escape
from death, of the five firemen caught In
the collapse of the Five and Ten Cent
Store.
Ilearlnm Should Br Private.
"It Is further deemed proper to state
that Inquiries by the Commissioners or
any one of them Into conditions of ad
ministration or conduct of municipal em
ployes In the performance of their duties
cannot, as a rule, and. Indeed. In Jus
tice to all concerned, should not be made
in public It may fairly bo presumed
that the. Commissioners In making such'
Inquiries "will act within the law and
with no other purpose than to arrive at
Just conclusions and to attain Just re
sults.
Mr. Charles W. Darr. attorney in Sul
livan's behalf, who will do present at
the hearing Thursday morning, last
night said. In part:
Action 'o Surprise.
"The announcement that a public hear
In? Is to be granted Sullivan and his
friends does not come as a surprise to me.
Knowing as I do that Commissioners
SIddons. Newman and Harding are- pos
sessed with an extreme sense of fairness
and Justice. I did not at any time during
the unnleasant controversy doubt that
Sullivan would bo given a 'square deal'
before any definite action would be taken
against him.
"The hearing Is not to be a trial.
There will bo no examination of wit
nesses, and Deputy Chief Sullivan Is not
to appear as a defendant against any
charges. No charges have been made
against him thus far, and the testimony
given at the hearings before Mr. SIddons
Is not a part of the official record of tho
District Commissioners" office."
Deputy Chief Sullivan said last night:
"I am glad that the Commissioners have
called a public hearing, and I expect to
be present."

"BEST WAY TO LOWER PRICES"
-
Secretary of the Navy Daniels believes
there exists among the four great ship
building concerns of this country a co
operative system which eliminates com
petitive bidding on government work,
and guarantees each concern the same
amount of contracts In a given period.
To smash any such combination, he ad-
oca ted yesterday a government plant
that could build battleships as cheap as
private concerns.
"Taking figures covering a given num
ber or years, I have found that each of
these four great companies has done
practically the same amount of work for
the government," he said. "Surely there
Is no competition there. I found that one
year, the Fore River Company would be
doing the work; the next year It would
be passed on to another company, the
next year to another company, and so
on.
"In order to stir np competition, the
government should build plants for the
construction of battleships and the manu
facture, of armor plate and powder."
Asked If he thought these plants would
really pay, after tho cost of building
the- the Secretary said:
"They would pay If the doors were
locked on the day of their completion,
and never opened again. All we would
have to do to get our prices would be
to Intimate that we'd start the fires up
and commence work."
Secretary Daniels said that the prices
of American concerns when dealing
with the government were exorbitant.
He cited the recent Instance of a pur
chase abroad, and said that an Ameri
can, firm wanted J 160,000 for the same
material that was purchased In Eng
land for 158,000.
"These concerns are making more
money than they know what to do
with," he commented.
There comes' a time, at1the close of the season, when profit ceases to be a consideration and K
clearance claims uppermost attention. vThat time is NOW when we make startling reductions: upon

his death, news of which was received in

Metropolitan Club he was president and
under his administration the club greatly
