the membership of the commercial bodies
which exist in the various cities of the
country. It was evident to any one who
looked into the banquet hall of the ashore
ham this morning that these same com
mercial bodies were in the habit of sending
substantial men to represent them at such
gatherings as the annual meeting of the
national board of trade. The annual see
alons of this body, which has now been in
existence mince 1868, furnish an opportunity
for the meeting of the representative busi
na11 men of the country and for the ex
change of views on topics of vital impor
to the entire country. The national
et Irade Is a delegated body, and
met for Its annual session today at
the roll called bythe secretary,
11 Heseilton Andrews Hill of Boston,
eGO that there were accredited dele
gates thn some twenty-five boards of
trade, chambers of commerce and other
chartered bodies in this country which are
organised for general commercial purposes.
The Venerable President.
Mr. Frederic F*Iley of Philadelphia, who
was elected President of the board at its
Ort meeting twenty-six years ago, and has
served the board in that capacity ever
since, occupied his usual place. When he
was elected president of the board in 1866
he was then not a young man, although
he had not quite attained the limit of three
eore ad ten. That was twenty-six years
ago. Today Mr. Fraley Is about ninety-one
years Old, a venerable looking man, who
shows the evidence of his great age when
he walks, as he finds it necessary to have
asistanee. When. however, he Is seated
in the chair of the presiding officer, or even
when he is standing on his feet addressing
the board, he does not betray his great
age. He was re-elected, of course, this
morning, as he will always be as long as he
continues to live. In fact the members
think of no one else In connection with the
place and there Is only one name mention
ed when the call for nominations for pres
ident is made. In accordance with his cus
com, Mr. Fraley, when the time for the
eletion came. left the chair and went out
of the ball. A committee was appointed to
notify him of his election, and they escort
ood him to the chair, their progress being
marked by a continued round of applause.
When Mr. Fraley once more took the chair
the members showed their affection for him
and appreciation of the event by giving
him quite an ovation.
Mi. Fraley's Speech.
Mr. Fraley remained standing, and when
the applause had died down he made a
in acknowledgment of the renewed
which the board had paid to him in
his re-iection. He then continued speaking'
at least ten minutes and all that time with
a voice so well sustained that he was heard
throughout the hall. His lQne of thought
was clear and connected and altogether the
address was appropriate and finely express
ed. He referred to the early years of the
board and the remarkable record it had es
tablished by the publication of Its proceed
tage. During that period a number of Im
pertant questions had come up which the
beard had considered. Other questions
wee now before the board, although not
al of the old ones had been disposed of.
He thought that ii - the future as Ip the
as- the bead weubl continue its digni
ed and thoughtful treatment of the mat
ters weh appeared before It. He referred
to his advahcing yevs and the probability
of which he was constantly reminded that
he would soon be called upon to leave the
duties and the cares of this world. Upon
the conclusion of his address the election
of ocers was concluded. Mr. Hill con

services performed the board in making
suggestions relative to legislation. The
report spoke of the exceptionable conditions
under which the present meeting was held
ewing to the financial depression. It is
proposed, he said, that action will be
taken by the board on subjects which
ought to receive the Immediate attention
of Congress. He referred to the methods
employed in Switzerland for ascertaining
the will of the people , and said that It
would be an excellent thing If the right,

TE LATE CONSU;L NEADE.
An Eoert to Nave His Body Drought to
New York for Interment.
Arrangements are being made at the State
Department to have the remains of United
State. Consul Meade brought from San
Domingo to New York, If possible, for In
terment at his late home, New London,
Conn. There may be some difficulty In ac
complishing this purpose, for the reason
that San Domingo. like many other tropIcal
countries, has a law requIring burial within
a day or two of death, and prohibits the
removal of the remains for a period of
years. These precautions are regarded as
a sanitary necessity. Whether they will be
applied In the case of Consul Meade Is yet
to be determined. Vice Consul Reed at San
Domingo has been Instructed to secure per
mlssion to remove the remains, and to in
form the State Department of the result.

Reports on the Bill Providing for Its
TR RET A? THE GRET FAIA
The Proposal to Make the District
CONTRARY TO -PRECEDENT.
During the latter part of December Sen
ator Proctor introduced a bill in the Sen
ate, by request, entitled "An act to Increase
the water supply of the city of Washing
ton, and for other purposes." The real
substance of the bill is to enable the At
torney General and the Secretary of War
to obtain a title for the United States by
right of eminent domain or otherwise to
such lands and water rights at and above
the Great Falls on the Potomac river as
they may deem necessary for the present
and future supply of water for the District
of Columbia. The bill also provides for
condemnation proceedings and the appoint
ment of three commissioners by the Secre
tary of War and the Attorney #General to
conduct these proceedings, and the levying
of one-half the cost of the work on the
The bill, after being referred to the com
mittee on the District of Columbia, was
later sent to the Commissioners for their
investigation and report.
Capt. Derby's Report.
As Is usual in such cases, the papers
were first referred to Capt. Derby, the en
gineer in charge of the water department.
In his indorsement on the bill he says:
"The question of what right the District
of Columbia has in the water rights of
Great Falls on the Potomac is one on which
the water department of the District is not
informed, the supply of water having here
tofore been entirely furnished by the United
States under the management of the chief
of enginezrsm, U. S. A. Doubtless a copy of
this bili has been sent to the Secretary of
War for examination and report. There
can be no doubt that the United States and
the District of Columbia should own the
rights to at least twice the amount of
water that Is now daily taken from the Po
tomac. say VO0.f0 gallons per day, and If
I we do not now own these rights it would be
more economical to secure them now than
later. As to whether it would be advan
tageous to the District and the United
States to own more of hese water rights
than the amount above" mentioned would
depend on hew much water there is avail
able and how much it would cost to get
control of it. The bill provides (section 3)
means of throwing light on these points.
and this result at least is most desirable.
The period of ninety days specifled In sec
tion 1 Is too short and should be increased
to one year. As under section 8 the Dix
trict is required to bear half the expense of
carrying out the act, the board provided
for In sectln I should. in my judgment, be
increased by the addition of the Commis
stoners of the District of Columbia. All
parties concerned should certainly have a
voice in determining the Important question
as to whether the praposed purchase is
worth the cost of it. There are many legal
questions involved In this bill and a refer
ence to the attorney for the District would
appear to be desirable."
Attorney Thomai' epgIeIs..
The opinion of the attorney was next
called for, and this afternoon Mr. S. T.
Thomas submitted an opinion oni the sub
ject. He reviews the legislation regard
ing the Washington acqueduct:
Since the time when, In 1819, Congress
appropriated money to "lay pipes to supply
the President's house and the executive
departments of the government with
water," many plans for a water supply had
been proposed to Congress, but nothing of
any consequence was accomplished until
1S2 (10 Stat., 12). In that year the civil
and diplomatic appropriation bill contained
an item of $150. "to enable the President
of the United States to cause the necessary
surveys, projects and estimates to be made
for determining the best means of affording
the cities of Washington and Georgetown
an unfailing supply of good and wholesome
water, report thereof to be made to Con
gress at its next session."
This appropriation was the beginning of
what has since become one of the greatest
aqueducts of modern times.
After reciting other legislative acts and
acts of corporation councils. Mr. Thomas
"It will thus be seen that the plant which
supplies this city with water Is the property
of the United States. The legislation pro
posed by the present bill is a departure from
the poliey of the United States in regard to
the Washington aqueduct.maintained with
out interruption for more than forty years
With the exception of the worthless 'Ly
decker tunnel' constructed under the act
of July1. I182, this District has never
been called upon to pay any part of the
expense of constructing the Washington
aqueduct. It can never use the water as a
source of revenue, and its expenses so for
except In regard to the worthliess tunnel
above referred to have been limIted to the
cost of laying mains for the distribution of
the water after It I. brought to the city.
However, If the DIstrict is to be agaIn
charged with half the expense of enlargins;
the Washington aqueduct at Great Falls,
it seems to me that it would be eminently
prpe t mend the eighth section of the
blsoas to enable Its Commissioners to
participate in deciding the question wheth
er what is desired by the bill Is necessary.
Aleast two of the Commisoners should
be added to the board provided for In sec
tion one. Of course with the growing of the
city there Is a demand for increased water
supply, and the land and water rights pro
posed to be acquired by the present bill
will at some tIme be necessary to increase
that suppiy, if It is not now necessary,
and the sooner, in poInt of economy It Is
acquired, the better. But it does seem to
me in so important a matter a this, which
involves a departure from a policy which
has prevailed for nearly half a century.
and a charge against the District of Colum
bia of one-half of the expense of enlarging
the aqueduct at Great Falls. It is manifest
ly proper that the Commissioners should
be consulted. And then, too, as pointed
out by Capt. Derby. the tIme, ninety days.
within which the Attorney General and the
Secretary of War shall specify the metes
and bounds of the land required, Is too
short. It should be at least six months or
THE WOULD'S FAIR MEDAL.
The Trouble Not Ended Yet by Amy
The trouble over the world's faIr medal is
not ended yet by any means. -Secretary
Carlisle has decided that the male figure of
"America" on the obverse of the medal
shall be draped, notwithstanding the asser
tions of Mr. St. Gaudens, the artist who de
signed the medai, that the figure is perfect
ly mnodest and proper as it Is. The published
threat of Mr. St. Gaudens to institute legal
proceedingis against Page & Brother, belting
manufacturers of Concord, N. H., for hav
ing circulated an alleged indecent caricature
of the medal, has resulted in the filing at
the Treasury Department of a formal pro
test by that firm of any change or altera
tion in the medal pending the hearing of the
proposed suit. They claim that the repre
sentation of the medal circ'jlated by them is
a good copy of the origInal and they ask
the preservation of the latter unchanged
until that fact can be established beyond
question. Work on the medal has been sus
pended, but as yet no arrangements have
been perfected for the draping of the figure
with a loin cloth, as proposed. Further pro
ceedings wili depend on the result of the

THE PRINTING OFFICE SITE.
A Bi Introduood in.the ue Today by
Causes Which ImamUeeed the Cev
maitte em Publie iammings amd
Greunds in Its Seleetso.
Following closely upon the action of the
Senate committee yesterday in the selec
tion of a proposed site for the new print
ing office comes the House committee on
public buildings and grounds today with
another and a different proposition. The
committee met this morning and by a unani
mous vote authorized Chairman Bankhead
to report a bill providing for the purchase
of square 683, between North Capitol, D,
Delaware avenue and C street, at a cost
not to exceed 5300.000, upon which is to
be erected a building to cost $1,150,000.
The bill In substance is as follows:
That the Secretary of the Treasury be
directed to acquire for the purpose and in
the manner hereinafter provided the real
estate not now owned by the government
in square number 683, bounded on the
north by D street, on the east by Delaware
avenue, on the south by C street and on
the west by North Capitol street, and the
sum of $3000.N is hereby appropriated for
the purpose of paying for the real estate,
and the Secretary is instructed to cause to
be erected upon said square a substantial
and commodious fire-proof building, with
fire-proof vaults, heating and ventilating
apparatus, elevators and approaches, for
use as the government printing offce, the
cost of the building not to exceed u1,00,U.
Section 2 provides that the Secretary shall
purchase the real estate so to be acquired
or any part thereof as soon as practicable
at such prices as may be fixed by agree
ment between him and the respective own
ers; provided that the Secretary shall not
pay in the aggregate for the real estate
more than $3000.400, and it is provided
further that no money shall be expended
for the purchase of said real estate or for
the erection of the building until the writ
ten opinion of the Attorney General of the
United States shall be had in favor of the
validity of the title to the real estate.
rev Condemnation Proceedings.
Section 3 provides that if the Secretary
shall be unable to purchase the whole of
the real estate or any part thereof he shall
cause application to be made to the Su
preme Court of the District of Columbia
at a general or special term by petition.
and upon such application the court shall,
without delay, ascertain and assess the
damages occasioned by the taking of the
real estate; said proceedings to be conduct
ed in the same manner as is provided with
reference to the taking of land for high.
ways in the District of Columbia.
Section 4 provides that the fee simple
of all premises so appropriated for public
use, of which an appraisement shall have
been made under the order and direction
of said court, shall, upon payment to the
owner or owners, or to such persons as
shall be authorized to receive the same, be
vested in the United States; or, in cese the
said owner or owners refuse or neglect for
fifteen days after such appraisement by
said court to demand or receive the sum
appraised, the Secretary of the Treasury
shall cause the amount so appraised to be
deposited in said court to the credit of such
owner or owners, and thereupon the fee
simple title to said real estate shall be
vested in the government of the United
Section 5 provides that the court may di
rect the time and manner in which posses
sion of the property so condemned shall be
taken or delivered, and may, if necessary,
enforce any order or issue any process for
giving such poss-ession. The cost of said
legal proceedings shall be paid by the
United States, unless the eourt sail other
wise adjudge; that no delay in said legal
proceedings or in taking possession of the
real estate condemned shall be caused by
any doubt as to the ownership of the prop
erty or any part thereof or as to the in
terests of the respective owners; in such
case the court shall require a deposit of
the money adjudged as compensation for
the whole property or the part in dispute,
and so soon as this shall be done posses
sion of the property may be taken by the
Uoited States. This appropriation and all
appropriations hereafter made for the -pur
pose hereinbefore named shall be expended
under the direction and supervision Qf the
chief of engineers of the army. who shall
have the control and management of ail at
said work and the employment of all-oer
sons connected therewith; he shall wake
all contracts for the construction of said
building or any part thereof, and shall an
nually report to Congress at the commence
ment of each session a detailed statement
of all his proceedings under the ptovislons
of this act.
What Chataman Bankhead Says.
Speaking of the matter to a Star reporter,
Chairman Bankhead said:
"Among the reasons -which induced the
committee to select this site are the follow
ing: First, its accessibility to all depart
ments by its location upon the two prini
pal street car lines, the Metropolitan and
the cable line, furnishing easy access to
every department doing business with the
printing office. Next, its location near the
Baltimore and Oito railroad depot, permit
ting the laying of a switch from the maain
line right into the basement of the building.
This will be of advantage in erecting the
building by permitting the delivery of the
heavy materials direct upon the spot and
saving the expense of hauling. After the
building is erected it will save 530,000 a
year in the transportation of crude material
and finished product to and from the buill
ing. Another point in favor of the location
is its close proximity to the Capitol, ena
bling communication by pneumatic tube or a
"The main opposition of this committee to
the plan proposed by the Senate, and it will
continue to be urged in opposItion, is that
the building of a printing office on the pres
ent site will r.ecessitate the work being done
by patchwork. They will put the building
up in sections, little by little, the conse
quence being that the work will extend over
a long period of time and will finally be a
job that the government should be ashamed
"In the meantIme no relief will be afrdned
the present overcrowded and dangerous con
dition of the quarters; the emaployes will be
crowded worse than ever. The only way to
relieve the condition of that structure is to
rent an annex somewhere and move into it
while another building is being pot up. We
believe that it would be the poorest economy
in the world to erect a building in this way.
Why, we have the largest printing oftice in
the world and It should be perfect. The idea
of this committee is to have a building of
steel. Iron and glass, furnishing the best
facilities for light and ventilation. If 0e..
Casey is given the money I believe he can
go ahead and put that building up within a
"If it is argued that the government can
not now afford to put up such a building.
all right: then rent another place and wait
until we can afford it. but don't go to work
and erect a structure that will be a re
p roach for all time to come. If we can't
buld a good one, don't lets build any at alL.
"The site provided in our bill will furnish
more ground space than is now occupied by
the State. War and Navy buildings, and it
has 5i0,000 feet of parking around it, which
can be excavated and all the heavy machin
ery put there. I thing that sound business
arguments will lead to the judgment that
we should proceed in the manner prescribed
by our bill."

The recent visit of Vice President Steven
son to Albany in company with Senator
Hill Is affording some of the politicians here
a new topic. Mr. Stevenson was invited to
Albany by the New York Bar Association.
and went to attend a meeting of the asso
ciation. The New York Senators besame his
escort by reason of their appreciation of
the honor of his visit to the state, and Mr.
Hill, in particular, being a meneber of the
Bar Association, took especial pleasure in
mainu the journey with him. Naturally,
too, Mr. HIll keeping an establishment In
Albany. Invited Mr. Stevenson to be his
guest while In town. This Is the simple
statement of the case; and yet by some it
Is einted upon as an important pointer.
They are able to see in it the existence of
very cordial relations between the Vice
President and Mr. Hill, designed to grow
and to strengthen, and to cut an important
figure in affairs at no distant day.
Perhaps this talk attracts a little 'more
attention than otherwise It would by rea
son of the fact that this Journey took place
immediately after the rejection by the
Senat of the Hornblower nomnation. The
Vice President, therefore, is made to appear
as having taken the arm of Mr. Hill, as
soon as the Senator had downed the ad
ministration in that contest, and walked
off cordially and even approvingly with him
to becoine his guest and address his friends
This Comment is a little guarded as yet.
It may be heard, however, both in ad
ministration circles and in circles friendly
to Mr: Hill. The administration people
PlaIly do not like the circumstance, but
Mr. Hills friends are quite as plainly
pleased with the interpretation of it which
assigns to the Senator the credit of having
been the leading Instrument of securing
the Vice President as the principal attrac
tion at the Albanlt meeting. It helps, they
think, to strengthen the impression In the
ranks of the empire democracy that Mr.
Hill is fast becoming a power in the coun
cus of the Senate.
Mr. Stevenson and the Presdeat.
Mr. Stevenson's attitude toward the Pres
ident is friendly, but reserved. His friends
say It is necessarily reserved. The Vice
Preaident under any administration must
keep somewhat In the background. During
the last administration Vice President Mor
ten was scarcely heard of at the White
Reuse He attempted to secure no patron
age, nor was his advice on that subject
sought by Mr. Harrison. Mr. Stevenson is
pursuing a similar course. He rarely ever
visits the White House and be never asks
for office for his friends. He is not taken
Into account in the distribution of the Il
linois patronage. He asked last spring for
a judgeship for his brother-in-law, but ob
tained instead a small foreign mission for
him. Since then the Vice President has
asked nothing of the President.
During the silver debate at the specMil
session of Congress Uhra an some conk
ihlat bf the Vice t on the part of
the Presidet's fn=. e" the score that
his rulina indicated no sympathy with the
President's 'policy. Suisequently, however.
this judgment v-as revised, and the opinion
very generally reached that the Vice Pres
ident, like the Senate itself, was the victim
of an eztraordinary code of rules. Mr. Ste
venson has taken no ground on any of the
great and pressing questions, though the
impression is very distinct here that both
on the question of Hawaii and that relating
to the offices promptly with demo
asit JW ls not in agreement with the Pres
iiik% qtis1 in exact accord with Mr. HIMl.
What the Goesipe Say.
This ionis connecting the name of Mr.
Stevenssn and Mr. Hill earries with it the
prediction that they will enter Into an
agreenent looking to induencing the action
of the neat democratic national convention,
and to support the prediction the announce
meat is made of the organiation of a Hill
club at Chicago with a membership ot one
thousand. Other clubs, it is @aid, are to fol
low, both last and - west, and the work
pushed on lines of appeal to old party feel
Ing. Mr. Steveon's friends say of him
that he is an old-fashioned democrat who
believes in putting the party completely In
poaema...: and at once, and Mr. Hill's
friends sy of him that he would stand
shoulder A shoulder with Mr. Stevenson in
carrying pht such a policy. This Albany
trip, irade4, is bringing out for the edifica
tion and, Instruction of their friends the
strong points of resemblance between the
Vice President and the senior Senator from
Dr. Harris to Be Retained.
Dr. Harris, commissioner of education, is
to be continued in his present position dur
ing this administration, provided, of course,
that his present standard of efficiency is
maintained. This decision was made lyy the
Presdent at the suggestion of Secretary
Smith. Dr. Harris is a republican holdover,
and the decision of the President will give
grief to the dosens of democratic applicants
for the ofice. The department will not give
the names of those who have filed applica
tions and brought pressure to bear with
this desirable position In view. It is known
that several Georgans were anxious to be
made commissioner of education, and Secre
tary Smith's recommendation that Dr. Har
ris be continued In office is thought to' have
been Influenced to some extent by the wish
of the Seoretary to avoid showing prefer
ence for any particular candidate, when
there were several with equally meritorious

Transfers of Troop.
The prospect of a very general change in
the stations of regiments during the com
ing spring is not very encouraging to
troops that have been at undesirable -posts
for the usual term of service. Gon. Seho-.
field favors makin these transfers in cases
where regiments hve been at one place
for four years and upward, hut the present.
ondition of the appropriation available for
this purpose precludes the possibility of
any extensive movements during the pres
ent fiscal year. The appropriation is aier.
than usual, and will not stand a very heavy
drain, except In an important emergency.
In case any changes are made this spring
they will most probably involve the trans
fer of the fourth infantry and the four
