Another chapter was added yesterday
to fire-escape history by the filing of an
opinion from Attorney S. T. Thomas
upon a point raised in the case of Wil
Jard's Hotel, heretofore noted iu the
Times, and which is, iu substance, as fol
JlOn a cursory reading of the law, Con
gress bcoms to have made a difference
between hotels and other buildings
used for a business for which a license is
required, and buildings ut-ud :ib seminaries
and colleges, etc., for which no license is
required. In the case of hotels it is made
unlawful to issue a license to the lessees
or proprietors thereof unless the application
for a license is accompanied by a certifi
cate of the building inspector that the hotel
is provided with fire escapes ub required
"In the case of buildings in which a
business is conducted for which no li
cense is required, the owners, lessees or
tmstees of Mich buildings are made liable
to a fine of not less than $50 1101 more
than $100 for eacli day they Bhall neg
lect after lxty days" nojice to provide fire
escapes. In&uchcases thelesseesorowners
are liable to prosecution on failure after
sixty days' i-oticc to provide fire escapes.
"While it would seem that there is a
distinction in favor of hotels, it disappears
when section 3 of the act of 1887, as
amended by the'net of 1895, (which re-"
quires the lessees or owners to have fire
escapes,) is read with section 1 of the
original act. The language of section 3
of the act of 1887,. is amended by March
2, 1&H5. Is that "in case of default of
fire escapes, said Commissioners are em
powered, and it is made their duty, to
cause said fire ecapes to be erected."
i "When read jn connection with section 1
this is broad enough, 1 think, to re
late loan ouHdings ou wnicn lire escapes
are required to be placed by the act of
MUST CONFORM TO LAW.
"An assessment of the cost of erecting
fire escapes Mi on Id be made strictly in
accordance with the tcrm6 of the law. It
Ehould appear both on the face of the
assessment, and the tax-lien certifi
cate, bjsed upon it, that the assessment
was levied on failure of the lessee, owuer
or trustee, after sixty days' notice, to
erect fire escapes. I think any agree
ment between the municipal authorities
and the lessee, owuer or trustee of any
building on which fire escapes are re
quired, to waive the notice would invali
date the assessment, and also the tax-lien
certificate issued iu respect to it.
"In my Judgment the Commissioners
Ehould give the notice of sixty daj, aud

Commissioner should cause them to be

college, academy or asylum, wtiere the
parties may be compelled by continuous
fines to erect fire escapes.
"In my opinion it would not be good

failure of the owners or lessees of build

lard'e Hotel, it seems to me the course that
must be pursued is to wait until the no
tice expires; then if Mr. Willard does
noterect fire escapes theConimi.siouers may

POINT NOT CONSIDERED.
In tills opiulon Mr Thomas pre.-oribes
a method of procedure under both provisions
of the law He applies the act of Congress
to all classes of buildings requiring fire
escapes, but one point upon which his
opinion was not holicited, remains to be
decided, and upon the surface of affairs
this appears to be the most important ofall.
It is well understood that, as a rule,
a tax lien certificate lirings With it to the
holder more trouble than profit. Even
tax certificates, under the mon favora
ble condition's, are said to Ik- of small
value, as the court have more than once
intervened, very properly, no doubt, to
protect the property sold from sacrifice
tinder a certificate showing sale for
The tax -hen certificate is said to be
of less value, unless, in the act under which
it is issued, there is a specific provision,
marking out the procedure for its enforce
ment Tax -lien certificates vary in im
portance, it is alleged, for this very
reason, and in a great majority of cases
they are tint valued bythose whoarc familiar
with the laws or the District auove tno
It so happens that in the amendment to
the fire escape law enacted by the late
Congress, hotel" were exempted from the
prosecution clause under which they might
have been fined for non-compliance, and are
therefore placed in the other class. Just
-why tins was done nobody seems to know.
It also appears that in the -wording or the
amendment not a clauseappearsdufiiniigthc
mnuner m which the holder or a certiiicatc
mav proceed to collect it, and since each
tax-lien provision is a law unto lttelf
and the method of its enforcement is limited
to its own provisions-, the certiiicatc which
the Commissioners may, under the fire
escape law, turn -over to the contractor as
his compensation for erecting the escapes,
has been pronounced by those familiar
with the subject as absolutely valueless.
BUT ONE BID CONSIDERED.
For this re.-ison.doubtless.thercwasbutone
bid opened yesterday for the erection of
a fire escape on Willard's Hotel, and,
possibly for the tame reason the contractor
who filed it asked permission to withdraw
it. The name of the contractor could not
Mr. Thomas says iu his opinion that Con
gress made a distinction between hotels and
other businesses for which a licence is
required. This distinction is pronounced by
others to afford absolute immunity to
hotels from the application of the Jaw, for
the reason that the proprietors cannot be
fined for non-compliance nor can any con
tractor be found willing to erect the
apparatus and take the risk or realizing
upon his "compensation." The Commis
sioners may, however, find a way out and
be able to bring hotels within the provisions
of some adequate penalty.
Mr. Thomas will file another opinion
to-day with respect to the application of
the law to buildings in which, newspaper
offices are located. He will hold that
where the buildings exceed fifty feet In
height the law may be enforced, and will
prescribe a method of procedure under the

v'dlcato DiwRorge 8,000.
A new phase of duplicity is derivable from
the two shloctf companies of this city.
The Capital Loan Guarantee Company
has come to terms and has ugreed to pay
up. Recently Mr. W W. Tennawine, who
is believed to be the soul or the Washing
'ton Mortgage Company, returned to town
jtnd indicated his desire to settle on behalf
of his company. The claims were put in
the hands of the company by Messrs. Ralston
& Siddoiis and it is now more a question
of amounts to be paid than the payment
The newly indicated species of fraud
referred to has come about in this way:
An applicant asks onu of the companies
,.for a loan. The company appraises the
property, executes a trust deed and lends
$100 and takes a note for $110 for a
month and thenceforward charges $11
per month for carrying the note. There
are, of course, appraisers' fees included in
PLUCKED BT BOTH.
Some time after this, although the
becurity is perfect I good, a dispute arises
between the borrower and the company.
He is told that they don't care to carry
the loan any longer, and all he can then
do is to go to the other company.
lie goes, must increase his loan, and
all the charges are made over again, the
appraiser's fee of $5 especially. In this
way it is plain that the borrower -will be
floundering in the money mire until he has
paid a small fortune in interest and ex
tensions, and will still owe the original note
There is even a worse case, in w.hich a
third party, a money lender, got the
benefit of about all that was left to the
borrower. The latter surrendered his
"company papers" to the individual
Shyloek, and when the latter made a good
sum. of interest he turned Ills papers back
again to the company, and the game began
again and was about to be played over
again lrom Alpha to Omega and back
again, when The Times' agitation called
Things like these are apt to daze ordinary
money lenders, for they have in them a
genius far beyond that of the Napoleon or
tinancc in the thirty-third degree
LVDI VIDUA LSHYLOCKS NETTLING
Jn addition to the complete surrender
of the two companies, the individual Shy
locks are coming in and sitting down at
the mercy seat of Judgment. One-or the
money lenders who took a vacation when
he was wanted in court, has written to
The Tunes' attorney, offering and agreeing
to settle one of his most lraudulent cases.
All of his cases will doubtless lie ar
ranged out of court to the benefit of his
alleged debtors n. usurious 1 merest.
The shady trail-- ntiuii in money lending
and duping the unwary are not confined
to the various cla-es heretofore given
uuen viable exploitation in Tho Times,
There are speculators on a large scale who
have swindled the confiding, and quite
lately one of them disgorged $8,000, aud
it was out or court at that.
He had sense enough not to make a
defense These skillful gentlemen belong
to a fortunately and, necessarily small
number of real estate brokers on F street.
TWO CASES' IN POINT.
Here are two ease; which are vouched
for by the lawyer -who took a hand in
righting the-wrougs in the transaction: A
contracted to buy a lot of land for $G00
He went to several f rieuds and said: Now,
we can have a good thing in this if, say,
ten of us chip in and we'll syndicate the
purchase for $11,(300, the purchaser keep
ing the amount or purchase to himself. -
Before it is necessary for him to complete
his contract he has gathered togother
$:t,G00 out of wliicn he pays $600 to the
seller and on the transaction lie is $.'1,000
to the good He, of course, takes the deed
to trustees representing ttie syndicate.
When the members of the syndicatediscover
the fraud, perhap they gat their money
back perhaps they don't.
A transaction Involving tho jSuin to such
a speculation or $80,000 was recently laid
bare in this attorney's office. The actual
price paid for the property was $170,000,
but it was syndicated for $250,000.
All went well until the speculator g6r
a letter m the morning to the errect that
he must come to the lawyer's office in the
afternoon prepared to pay to one of the
victims the cheerful sum of $8,000. It
CONFUSING THE RECORDS.
The special success or the speculation ap
pears to bo in his ability to confuse the
records after having taken men Into "his
confidence. The thing is worked like this:
Tho deed or the property to the trustees
goes on record, for instance, on the 1st of
July. The deed of t rust securing the original
venture, has already been on record a
month prior to that timo.
A second deed of trust which is really
for the beneht or the syndicatnr, but os
tensibly in some other person's name, does
not go on record until a later time; so that
the transaction, so far as the records ap
pear, is so disjointed as not to attract the
attention of the peop'e most interested.
It sometimes, however, conies out and
then the speculator must come to time
or get a black eye before the public; or
they get a decisive letter in the morning to
the effect that they must settle before
Guilty of Soliciting Clients.
Policeman Flynn, of the Second pre
cinct, who is now on duty at the police
court, .is an unrelenting loe to tho "cap
per," and Tor some time he has had his
eye on George Dixon, a colored attorney,
who hangs around the police court.
Yesterday he saw Dixon talking to Re
becca Ketiler, colored, in the corridor
or the police court, and he had him up
berore Judge Miller and charged him with
soliciting clients in the police court.
Judge Miller, arter hearing the evidence,
decided that Dixon was guilty, and fined

over a discussion or tho recent trouble in

concerned. Judge Miller heard the evi
dence and assessed the-two men $5 each.
