a view of more econemicsl msnagement and a
uniformity of price*. In speaking of the new

trust nor iu the nature ef one, but by reason of
the very low prices which have prevailed for
several years and the strong competition many
of the weaker membors of our association have
gone to the wall, some even being sold out by
the sheriff, and we hope by this move to pro
tect our business and realize at least a reasona
ble profit on our capital. There will be no ma

Army delegation that waited on him yestor
day, had then made np hia mind as to whom he
would like to appoint. He waa waiting before
sending the name to the Senate, 11 la stated,
?imply to aee if something might not happen to j
throw new light on the situation. Ho felt that
this appointment was too important for
any mistake to be made through haste.
He examined orcry possible detail relating to
the various candidates, and particularly the
one on whom his choice has fallen. He has for
this purpose questioned several prominent citi
zens of the District and left no stone unturned
in his effort to give the District an honest,
capable, reliable democrat as Commissioner.
A little before noon today a delegation of
citizens callcd at the White House and saw the
Prosident in behalf of Mr. E. G. Davis as Com
missioner. As events proved, however, they
?were too late. They were headed by Dr. Thos.
G. Addison of Trinity Church, John L. Vogt
and Mr. Boteler.
JOHX W. BOSS.
Mr. John W. Boss came from Lowistoa, Fallen
I county, I1L, and is about forty-eight years of
age. His father served in Congress from Illi
nois for six years in the '60's. Mr. Boss cam*
here in June, 1870, to b? married. He wedded
then the daughter of Mr. Frank*
I lin Teuney, the proprietor of the
National Hotel In the following year
he removed from Illinois to this city, and has
since made his home here. When in Illinois
he attained some prominence as a lawyer, and
served two terms in tho state legislature. He
has practiced his profession successfully dor*
ing the twenty years ho has resided in this city,
or at least until three years ago, when he en
tered official life as postmaster of this city. He
was appointed to that office by President Cleve
land to succeed Mr. Conger, and still holds it.
He has been a professor in the Georgetown
University Law School for some years, and has
for several vears been a member of the school
board. He Is at present president of the board.
Mr. Boss' first wife died several vears ago,
leaving him with two children. He married
about two years ago a lady of Pittsburg and
has a happy, pleasant home in this eity. Per
sonally tho new appointee is popular. He is a
member of tho Columbia Democratic Club. His
excellent management of the city post office
and his capable discharge of his duties in other
capacities give assurance that he will make an
houest and efficient Commissioner. He has the
knowledge of District law desirsble in a Com
missioner. and his even temper and good judg
ment will enable him to deal with the public
acceptably. In these respects he closely resem
bles his predecessor, Mr. Hine, whose resigna
tion of his position has caused so much regret
in the community.
WHAT MIX. BOSS BAITS ABOUT IT.
When a Stab reporter called on Mr. Boss at
the city post office the newly appointed Com
missioner was as calm as if he did not realise
that he had just been constituted one-third of
the District government. Mr. Boss wus not ex
actly surprised at his appointment, bat ex
pressed considerable regret at giving up the
postmastership.
-I very naturally consider it a great honor,"
said Mr. Boss. "to be namod for the responsi
ble position of Commissioner, but it will be
with the greatest regret that I will givo up the
post office. My relations here have been of the
piost pleasant character, and especially have I
received every courtesy and assistance trom the
department. ' Just at present the city post
office is an especially interesting department
in view of ttiu now buildings contemplated,
not only for tho main office, but for several of
the branch offices. The new position will also
render it necessary for me to give up the
school trusteeship. I have been greatly inter
ested in our public school system and consider
that there is no more important department in
tho Distriot government.
"In regard to tho commissionershlp I did not
make the slightost effort to secure the appoint
ment The first intimation that 1 received
that my name was even being considered was
yesterday morning, when the Prosident re
?uusted me to call on him at the White House,
did so and we chatted for some time. The
President did not say he intended to apfkriut
me and I considered that ho simply wished to
do what might be called 'looking me over.'
'Mot having thought of the appointment I
have naturally not had time to consider any of
the points of difference between my prede
cessor and the Engineer Commissioner. I shall
simply go into the office with the determination
to act to the best of my ability for the
good of the city and tho people?
not for any one section or any one
interest, but for the entire community.
Having made no pledges to any one, and having
no interest in any clique or division, I shall be
entirely free to act as I think is for the very
best interests of tho District."
Mr. Boss had nothing to say as to bis proba
ble successor, either at the post office or
as school trustee. He remarked, however, that
the city post office was in a flourishing Condi
tion, over four hundred employes being en*
gaged in the buildipg. The new Commissioner
also thought that it would be an excollont idea
to have the Commissioners moved to the new
city post office building when erected. 4
AT THE CITT POST OFFICE.
At the city post office this afternoon some of
the officers and employes were loth to believe
the statement that Mr. Boss had been nomi
nated as Distriot Commissioner, and some
doubts were expressed as to the acceptance of
the appointment. This feeling has its origin
in the deep interest Mr. Boss has taken in pro
moting the efficiency of the post office. In
fact he had stated a few days ago to a<frtend
that his present ambition waa to remain at his
post tho full term and see tho workings of the
office brought as near perfection as it is possi
ble to have such an office.

It was rumored early in the day at tho Dis

but no definite news was rscelvsd until I
o'clock. A Stab reporter was the first to ae

A curioim crowd waa gathered today about

heard in the erolrd the building waa ia danger
of falling down, but Batldiag Inspector Ent

Mr. W. Brace Gray, architect of the building,
aaid that ia preparing the plane no etpenne waa
epared in the amount of material to be uaed to
make the coaatraction of the building eafa be

brick facing be aaid waa an accident that waa
liable to happen in any building and doc*
not endanger the etability of the build

caaioaed by the unequal aettlemeut of
the briek work of the pier aad would be
remedied ia a abort time. The crack waa only
in the preaa brick facing of the pier and the
backing waa mora than ample to carry the
weight that waa to be auatained. The facing of
presa briek, be aaid, aa la usual, was laid with
closer joints than the red brick used iu the
backing. The latter had settled more than the
former and the weight had caused the fracture.
The pier was four feet square and waa capablo
of carrying double the weight to be sustained.
Mr. Gray said that Mr. Eotwisle bad made a
thorough examination of the building and had
found that tbe walla were aound and the con

To a Stab reporter today, speaking of the

by irregular ahrinkaga of mortar iointa, causing
