the Responsibility For a Deatb
Trap Workmen's noieaSbuttcred.
No official notice .will be taken of tbe
death ot Charles Beach, tbe unfortunate
workman who was killed yesterday by
falling from tbe new City Postoffice
This decision was reached by Coroner
Hammett last night, after a cursory in
vestigation of the circumstances attending
He viewed the body as it" lay in tbe
morgue, and came to the conclusion that
death was due to an accident, the details
of wblcb were evidently not of para
mount Importance, and summarily ended
his connection with the whole case.
Four victims are now credited to tbe bis;
buildlng.and no one has been found toblamo
In any instance. The men went to work
to-day with the feeling that anyone might
be the next to crash through tho network
of girders ( and bound from story to story
through the uirguardetl chasm.
T.'ie had hoped that Bvach's death would
lead to an investigation of the place, and
that tho neglect of the contractors to more
adequately provide for their safety would
be brought to light.
AVben It became known that Coroner Ham
mett had thus summarily disposed ot the
case there was a general feeling that
someone bad neglected bis duty.
This sentiment was not confined to the
men on the building. Among working
men generally there was much complaint,
and in many Instances it was charged that
the coroner had possibly exceeded his
authority in thus disposing of the matter.
For a long time tbe class of mechanics
whose trade calls them to the dangerous
duties consequent upon the construction
of high buildings have watted and hoped
that tbe question of responsibility for
such accidents-as tbat of yesterday would
be definitely fixed by a coroner's ver
dict, and that some Jury might be found
wblcb would venture a suggestion to pre
vent this so frequent occurrence.
Coroner Hammett left the ntv ttii mnm

No More Trees to Be Sacrificed to
As Soon as Poiwlblc Park Shade Win
Be Sprinkled With a Pre
Col. John M. Wilson, in charge of public
grounds in the District, to-day stated to
a Times reporter that every possible ef
fort, coming within tho limits of the ap
priation for tbat purpose, would be made to
prevent the trees in the parks and reser
vatlons from being seriously injured by
the beetles, which at present threaten to
become unusually destructive.
Col. Wilson says that the sum of money
allowed for maintaining parks is lnade
quate for all the purposes to which it should
be applied. The work of caring for the trees
is under the immediate supervision ot Geo
II. Brown as chief arborculturalisl.
Last year a preparation of soap, kerosene
oil aud carbolic add was put around the
robots of the trees, and was found very
efficacious In killing the worms that
came down before they had time to again
ascend the trees.
When funds have been available it has
been found beneficial to spray the tops
ot tile trees with a decoction of London
purple or Paris grecu, which was suc
cessfully used in killing tho bugs. But
such protective means are expensne, and
there Is not sufficient money aailable
to coer 100 acres of parks.
"Another" and greater trouble," said
Col. Wilson, "was found Iu the fact that
the spraying of park trees with a poison
ous decoctiop would be accompanied with
great dange-Jto the public Children are

and afterward a little child,

effects of the poison on it. The result would
be something terible to contemplate.
"I hope, howeve, later In the season,
after giving the people sufficient warning,
and taking every possible precaution to
pevent anyone from being poisoned, to
procure a little kerosene engine, with a
force pump, and shower the decoction ot

tbat something should be done to check tbo

the caption, "Protect the Trees." The
editorial is as follows:
