OPINION OF COMPTSOLEER
It In to the Effect That 1111 Appropria
tion Made to Fay A Cannot Be Di
verted to B Lawyers Argue That
the Condemnation Jury Can Wutt
foe Their Money.
Comptroller Bowler's response to the
query concerning the pay of Juries in the
condemnation proceedings was exactly
what the petitioners anticipated, and i li.it,
they claim, might have been known in ad
vance by all parties, it was to the effect,
that an appropriation made to pay A can
not be diverted to B.
The racl Is, however, that there bavo
been tv. o appropriations made, in the ag
gregate $18,U0O, a part or which was i-pc-cially
set ubid" for tl.e prelumiary surveys
and for the preparation of the maps.
There is a unai! balance onlj", and It
was stated that even if the balance were
greater It could uot be used. The money
appropriated for the pay of the regular
jurors, it is also assem-d, caunot be used
to pay a Jury In the condemnation proceed
ings. Chief Justice Bingham reviewed the c!r-
cumstaucos this morning and Intimated
that the situation seemed to forbid au order
for the appointment of a Jury.

, Mr. Nathaniel Wilson, In behalf of the
petitioners, asked that beforo final deci
sion he should be permitted to stute some
facts, which, ha said, the court should
uu advised of. lie bad, be said, examined
the law and consulted with the office of
the Attorney General, and he could see no
reason, either upon information received
or iu law, for a stay of proceedings.
The question whether the cause shall
go on was not referred to the comptroller,

provides that the Commissioners shall in
clude in their estimates, as in other cases,

In the contingency tbatnow appears, ilr.
Wilson suggested. It is very extraordinary
that the District Commissioners should ex
press surprise at the discovery at this
late day, two years and more alter the act
was put upon the statute books, that there
is not money at command to pay the Jurors.
That there is a balance on hand Is suffi
cient basis upon which to order that the
cause may be proceeded with, and, as in
other cases, depend upon to Congress to
pass a deficiency bill. Such a bill, Mr.
Wilson said, could be passed before the Loll
days, and meanwhile, If there is any doubt,
the parties will be glial to guarantee the
marshal against the Incurrence ot llabi
ity tor Jury fees. They 111 willingly agree
to pay the few hundred dollars that will be
necessary for the first proceedings under a

unnecessary to cast about now to see how

This Is red letter day In the markets.

and an air of business last nLrht, and today
it is the scene of crowding, surging, fret

The cron d Is large, but it Is not t bant
was last year, the market rncusay, norwt.at
It has been years before. The dealer tells
you, at be takes short lntcnalaforbruith,
between waiting on this customt r and then
on that, that the stores are fast driving
the market man oat of existence.
la fact, he blmsclt says inut he will soon
be on extinct species, for where U the man,
he asks, that would not step around' the
corner and purchase, bis whole holiday la j -out
of palatables than to tra vela way to the
market, even though he knew be could get
better and cheaper?
The marketls tar from an unsightly place
at these times. Prettily decorated booths
of the freshest flowers at not Infrequent in
tcrvals are the handsomest adornments of
all. The vegetable stands res cat ev cry pig1
tuent in Nature's color box, from the bright
Vermillion ot the beet to the blending of the
flake-white celery stalk into the brilliant
green ot the spraying top.
Thelongavcnuesor the meat stalls present
so tempting a display that it is difficult
to prevent the very teeth from shedding
tears. Stall after stall is tilled with the
choicest porterhouse steaks, prime ribs,
lamb chops, quarters of beef, hams, saus
ages and salted meats of every variety.
Along the Bide aisles the fish rows and
game stalls stand side by side. The game
hampers are filled wltn everything that
heart or appetite could wish. In monster
plies or in tempting bunches salmon, bass,
perch, pike, red snapper, shcepshcad and a
score of other varieties attract the eye.
The all-present turkey sHd for 14 nnd

George Foster, the partner of Kelson,
who was convicted ot gambling in Alexan
dria County and sentenced to pay a fine of
$50 and serve ten days in Jail by Judge
Chichester yesterday, cunic into the county
courtroom in Alexandria and gave himself
up. He was given the same alleged pun

Life in tl.e Alexandrii Jail lo people

Ycnttnlay afternoon a Time3 reporter vis

in one comer of the cell wus a bucket full
of bodied beer. Upon being asked how
they liked their ijuarters Jim La Fontaine
replied that he had ieeii worse.
Tlnrr gamblers are allowed everything
the) wish for. Their uiealx are prepared
in a neighboring restaurant and sent in.

and wears corduroy lrouors. ilr Hays
is evidently Vfrj much in iovu with his
mustache, as inirirg the conversation he
kept stroking and brushing it. He even
brushed and caressed the hair on his upper
lip while be was tr)ihg lo pick nut the
article which he thought rcilccred upon
Jilm aud bis management of the jail.
To the most casual obscrv er It was plain
ly evident that Mr. Hays wou dlhave been
very glad to have smashed the reporter
with tneiron keys to thecell doors, which be
was handling when not stroking his mus
tache. It is said that Judge Chichester and Spe
cial Prosecuting Attorney Marbury are
quite Indignant that The Times should crit
icise their action In the gambling cases.
They seem to bo of the opinion that they
are above reproach in theniatter.and either
cannot see where convictions could have
been made, or tiiey were afraid to enforce
the law, according to the wishes of Gov.
O'Ferrall. It is extremely hard to tell
Detective Baldwin says he had evidence
agnlnt the men to convict them on at least
thirty-five cases if the prosecuting attor
ney had called for it. The gamblers berore
tre trial each offered to pay $1,000 If not
prosecuted. Why this evidence was not
called for Is a mystery, and will probably
remain i-o until the special appointee of the
governor. Mr. Marbury, makes a statement.
That the'gnmblers were elated over the
light fines and sentences was clcirly lllus
tratedin this instance. When Mr.rcnt,tho
attorney f orthe Heaths, went to rfackHcatb,
sr.. to get the morcy to settle the cases he
told bim how much It was, and the old man
"What! is that all! Why I thought It
would be ten times that much."
WILLING TO PAT SG.000.
The Heaths were willing, and even
anxious, to compromise the cases by the
payment of $0,000, if there was not a
jail sentence attached to it, yet when the
cases came pp before Judge Chichester a
compromise was effected whereby the
largest floe. to be paid was $100.
Mr. Brent, the counsel for the gamblers,
openly said on the street of Alexandria yes
terday that if he had taken the cabc to
trial before a jury he would v ery likely have
gotten eacn or mem rined 51 ,000 and twelve
months in Jan.
The position taken by The Times has the
support of, every good citizen of Alexandria
County. "Jvnieji several ot the citizens or
the county wyre approached this morning
at the county courthouse, they all expressed
themselves as highly delighted at the stand
taken by .The Times, and said also that the
whole affair Vfas one of the most disgrace
ful that hasevcr taken place in the county.
Detective Baldwin Is receiving warm
praise frdpi every law-abiding' citizen of
thecountyandjthey say that It was through
no fault of his that there was such a dis
gusting miscarriage of justice.
Gov. 0'ierril has not as yet been heard
from as lo jWJiat he thinks of the affair.
It Is expected that he will make a state

Tin re Is a growing sentiment among
officials and citizens of the District
favoring the Increase iu the membership
of the Metropolitan police force, advo
cated by The Times, and already. In an
ticipation of probable appointments, ap
plications for .osltlcns on that bedy are
b'iig filed. There seems to te no doubt
in the mines of the heads of thedepartment
that Congress will realize the needs of
the District in this direction, and au
thorize the appointment of the number of
additional men asked for by Major Moore.
Lieutenant Isnnc rearson, night inspec
tor for that eiction of the city west of
Seventh street nnd north and south of tbe
Mall, sics more, perhaps, of tfce actual need
of n greater number nf men than any other
number of the department. Hesajs that
It Is an absolute impossibility for the force
of men at present available for active
street duty to alford proper protection to
life and properly in the District.
rOBCB REMAINS TUB SAME.
Notwithstanding the immense growth of
the city in recent )ears, the forco remains
practically tbe same, and sections that'
were a tew years ago broad commons and
vacautlots ore now built up and populous,
but bave no more men to look after tbe ln-terc-nts
of the residents than when human
habitations n ere few and far between.
There are some portions of the city in
which it is atsolulily dangerous for pe
destrians to walk at night. Tlie Blze of the
beats and the officers' Inability to take
care of both ends of it at once continue to
make things easy for crooks, and It is In
such locations that "holdups" are most
frequent. Of course, the moral lone of
these localities has Increased considerably
in recent years, but there still lurk" evi
dences of old time lawlessness.
In Southeast Washington, extending from
First street to Four and-a-half street, and
from alxmt K street to the river front, is
that part of the city known as "Blood
fleid." At one time in the city's his
tory It was completely crime-ridden, but it
is cousulernbly Improved of recent years.
Nearly every corner in "Blocdfieid" has
ticcn the scere of some bloody fight, or is
commemorative of a robbery. Even now
fights, robberies and tragedies or all sorts
are of frequent occurrence.
FELL INTO Tlir. CREEK.
Only a few weeks ago a .voung lady.
walking home with ber lover, fell Into
the- James Creek canal, and was drowned
before the police could be summoned from
some remote parr of thu beat.
The latest robbery of any.niagnttudc was
the roblicry or old Nicholas Holcer, a shoe
maker iu that locality, of a Urge sum of
nione) in gold. The detective orrice, lio
ever, finally succeeded in arresting John
Ejler, the thief, and recovered most of the
"8 wamppoodle," as that part or the city
lying along the tracks or the IS. & O. road.
In the northern part of the city, is another
tough locality, where more pollcem. 11 are
needed. The most recent tragedy enacted
witMn the bloody precincts of that section
wa s t he killing or young Dempsey by Police
man Veriulllion, for which the officer hi cow
before the grand Jury.
Dunpfcey, with a master ot l.Is compan
ions, was laying for Vermillion, who was
running his beat alcne, and caught him
about 1 o'clock in the morning. In the
fight the officer drew his revolver and
fired with fatal effect.
IN FOGG1 BOTTOM.
"Foggy Bottom," as that portion of the
city lying along the river front In the
Third precinct is called, is another tough
locality. Robberies are not very fre
quent, as the inhabitants of tbe bottom
have little to take, bat fights are of
everyday occurrence, and not unfrciiuenfc
ly It is the policeman, alone and solitary,
who gets the worst of it.
