MR. WARFIELO OBJECTED
Smith People Wanted Him to
Bear Half the Expense.
GABBAGEMEH CONFER AGAIN
Tilings Are Sunplng Out and It Is
Tliousbt Construction Will Begin
Soon Drown Crematory rlrst Site
Will lie at the Foot of South Capi
Another chapter was added to garbage
history to-day, the Smith crematory agents
having a conference with the Comnils
slol.vrsat which Health Officer Woodward
and Contractor Warfield were present.
The meeting was for Uie purpose of ar
riving at an urdenoandlng upon certain
points prior to signing the contract, and
as these points are not yet determined
another conference wBl be held to-morrow,
when, it is understood, a choice of
crematory will be made.
It was a. well-authenticated rumor at
the District Building to day-that the Smith
representatives presented a proposiUon on
Saturday asking that thegarbage contractor
shall bear one-half the expense of con
struction, in case the crematory shall have
to be removed.
This was not acceptable to Mr. Warfield,
and the matter was a EUbJect ot discussion
this morulug, with the result that the
Smith contract will lie a duplicate of that
signed by the competing companies.
TneBrulth Crematory Coinpeuy was repre
sented by Mess rs. Borguer. Smith and Byers.
None of them desired to discuss the situ
ation, but said they would cheerfully fur-ni-h
all desired information as soon as the
matter eould be decided.
KEAlir FOB CONSTRUCTION.
It Is bel loved that work wUl be commenced
upou the construction ot a plant within a
ery few days. It seems to be further
settled that the first to be built will be a
Drown crematory, and that the kite to be
occupied by that system will be at the
foot of South Capitol street.
From all the circumstances, so far devel
op!, nothing seems to be positively as
sured, except that the moneyed men upon
whom will rest the burden of fulfilling the
contract, will not consent to the adoption
of any crematory that Is not backed by a
sufficient guarantee of Its raccess. Th"
Brown and the Dixon have signed the.
requisite bonds, respectively, and the
Smith has consented to do so.
It will require at least ninety days to
construct a Brown furnace. It is beliered
no oilier can be erected in less time than
that, and hence the desire of the Commis
sioners and the garbage contractor to
hasten the matter to the point where
actual work will be commenced.
Washington H1 rare a dally nveraeo
ot sixty tons for garbage consumption in
the winter month, and In summer the
amount is Increased to probably 120 tons.
POUTNEIl FLATS LICENSE.
The Whvlan application for license for
a barroom at the Former Flats is liltI?
to figure in court, is the event that the
excise board deckles agaisst the protest
ants. The case will be finally considered fcr
the board to-morrow, to which time it
was adjourned at the meeting of to-day, at
the request of Attorney Donaldson, and
because, also, of the absence of Attorney
Thomas' opinion, which had not yet been
forwarded from the Commissioners.
Mr. Donaldson said to-day that be can
not see bow the excise txiard can grant
the license under the circumstances, which
he will lie able to demonstrate, but in
case the application is approred he pro
poses, on behalf of the protcstants, who
are bona Ilde r-sidcnU, to push the case
to the farthest limit, even if he has to re
sort to the courts.
Attorney Shoemaker, who represents
the Anti-saloon League, also intimated
that the cose would be beard of later In
the event that the board granted the
license. He is sUU of the opinion that
the amended law will shut out the Fort
ner. The hearing to be given to morrow is
likely to be full of points, and the discus
sion will be interesting.
TUET ABE HOUSEHOLDERS.
Among other things that -will be shown
hi that six nouseho'ders, whose affidavita
are with the board, allege that they are in
possession of the flats as Individual renters,
and that they have as jutno notice from
the agents to surrender possaia. Tl y
demand to be beard .
It will also be alleged that the building
Is not cutiUed to be classed as a. hotel, and
the board -will be asked to refer the matter
again to the attorney of the District for his
oplnlou upon Ibis point.

When the court of appeals meets the

special criminal calendar as Is customary
at the beginuixg of the autumn term.

In the court of appeals Cant. Ilowgalc was

surrender himself on September 30.
Capt. Howgate is now understood to be
In New Tork, and bis counsel. Judge Jere
Wilson and Col. Worlbington, are out of
the city. I twos understood, though, between
Mr. Birncy and counsel for Howgate, the
former said, that the heariug should take
place the first week In September, and It is
now the prosecuting- attorney's design to
bring it about.
A sUll more Important rase, said Mr.
Blrney.as far as public Interest is measured.
Is that of Louis A.Duuan, under sent. nee
since July 8 toa year and a day at Albany,
for Uie iolatlon of the Utah net.

..There were a number of oUier convictions
for the same offense, whereiii all the
parties, excepting Dunan, were colored.
Only a part of these were able to furnish
ball, reasonable as it was.
The importance ot an immediate de

seen, and Mr. Birncy will bring the cases

Arrangement of theJfew Stars Finally
On July 41896. tbe Territory or Utah
will become a State and add. -the forty
fifth star to the union of the American
flag. As tbere have been quite a number
or new States entered within the post
few years, and as Congress has passed
no law since 1818 regarding the position
of tbe additional stars, the anion on the
present nags Las little uniformity.
Since that time the War and Navy De
partments have designed their own flags,
each arranging the stars according to its
own ideas. Quite recently, however, these
two Departments have reached an under
standing in regard to this matter. and have
decided on an official flag
The union or the new rlag consists of
three rows of eight stars each and three
rows of seven stars, which rows will. In
the near future, be compjeted by the addi
tion or one star each, representing New
Mexico, Arizona and Oklahoma, respect
ively, which Territories will be the next
to enter the union.
