COMPLAINED OF THE FINES
Contractor Wajfigld Sajs They Are
Ila.nolds OyLengtliy- Conference With.
, . tho Garbage Service.
Contractor Warfleld, of the garbage serv
ice, and Ins assistant, Mr. S. P. Bayly, were
closeted with the District Commissioners
fof about two hours to-day, the subject of
dlscuhslup beln,tbe number ot complaints
recently filed of the neglect of the collectors
and the Infliction of a liue as penalty in some
tweuty-flM--Instances based uon the com
plaints. The coutraclor'complalncd that Injustice
Is often done lilm in the matter. There is no
way proMded, be, says, for determining sat
sfactoril) whether or not the allegations of
the citizens "are correct.
The driver's word is not taken, unxup
portcd, as against the householder's as
sertion, nud yet in instances cited, the col
lector called twice iu a week, according .to
thei requirements, but was reported as not
having been at the place for o er t wo weeks.
The Irate citizen in one of these cases
nollrled the health office that he would
dump the refuse into the street, unlets it
timid be iinnmlutely removed;
Tiie point raised by Mr. Wurtleld is th.it
had it not Leen for corroboration of the
drner'sstorj that lie had beeu to the place
without being able to rtach the garbage,
Uio prow st would hae caused iilni, the
contractor, to be ffiitd.
In ca8 where there Is not a pioper
receptacle proliledand complaint is made
the contractor Is excused, yet a great
man complaints are filed under thee
conditions, and Mr. Warfleld's protest
h, again-.! the application of the pinalty
without providing a more compute guard
against Injustice to the contractor.
There was no conclusion rtacbed In
the in liter. Col. Trut sdell. In the course
of the drtiustiou. infynmd Mr, War
field th-it It was his duty under the law to
Isit the premises, and it was equally the
ilulj of the householder to provide proper
garbage receptacles and make the same ac
cessible to the collector.
The proposition to rescind the penalty
clause of the contract was not agreed to, and
any arrangement looking to tbe adjustment
of tlio eyeteui of fining for derelictions
waH left to the future.
The contractor notified the board that
he had selected a coii'pitent man to inspect
the cren ntories In Philadelphia, Wilmirg
ton, and Cuii'dcu, respectHtly, and that lie
would go on at once to make his examina
tion. The particular system to beempToyed
In the District has not yetbeen selected.
If the Cotrmis&ioncrs hare made a choice
they will not announeeit. but it isconfidently
believed that oueof theplautstobelnspected
by tbe contractor's agent will be chosen,
and it may be either of two, tbe Dixon or

Metroiuilitnu Employees Say Phillips

From the murmurs ot discontent among

railway. It is not Impossible that the action
of President Phillips in forcing the em
ployes of bis road to work additional

will result in a tie-up.
The employes feel that Mr. Phillips has
prepared himself for the worst that may
come, but this, the) say, does not relieve
him of having broken faith witb his men.
The conductors nnd drivers are ot the
opinion tli.it men are athand foraselncase
troiiblo should ensue. One ot the cont
iluclors told a Times reporter this after
noon Uiat he knew as a fact that men have
been engaged and are in readiness to go to
work. Unless there, is something done at
once, said one of tlo conductors, then the
issue will be ruackr. What it would be he
would Dot state.
The conductors and drivers understand
the program fori action thoroughly, and
should the occasion arise for carrying their
determination into eftrcj, everything would
work witb clock-like precision. Said one of i
the men: r
"I do hope matters will be adjusted

ruled strong .
The splendid outlook for the crops Is
cucou raging purhasers for the long ac
count, and if the foreign exchange mar
ket should weaken and gold exports tease
the buying would undoubtedly asranie large
proportions. The improvement In the rail
ways this motuing was equal to l-4al 1-8
per cent., the grangers, Manhattan nnd
Oregon Short Line being conspicuous in
the upward movement. At 11 o'clock
speculation w.is quiet and steady.
The industrials were weak and lower
after 11 o'clock and there was consider
able pressure to sell tobacco and sugar.
Tbe first-named dropped to 98. Just
a week ago to-day the stock sold at 114.
Sugar fell to 111 3-4, Distilling to 20 1-8,
and Chicago Oas to 62 1-8. The grangers
were a shade easier, but Manhattan was
decidedly stronger and rose to 115alJ4 3-4.
At mid-day lhe general market was
steady, but Tobacco was beaTy at the
lowest point yet touched.
