Possible That Stevens School
Will Not Be Transferred.
BEBUE.DING BIDS BEJE0TED
Suggestion Tlmt tlio Pupils Occupy
the Old Quarters A not Iter Ycnr Mny
Be Accepted Text of the Garbage
Contract Contractor Culled Down.
Selecnt Ion AhkNfornn Appoint nieut.
It Is not Improbable that tho suggestion'
made by tho "West End League" in re
spect to tho Stevens school building will
of necessity be adopted. The recom
mendation is that tho proposed recon
struction of the building bo deferred until
after tho close of the coming school year,
when there will be time enough, as
thero is not now, to do the work without
Interfering with the studies and obviat
ing the necessity of a transfer of the
pupils to the Miner Building.
It has been previously slated In The
Times that the lowest bid made for the
work of reconstruction was about $3,000
more than tho appropriation, but the
bulldlug Inspector believed he could so
reduce the details that be could bring
Uic improvement within the limit.
Upon consultation, however, with Su
pervising Principal Montgomery, sev
eral conferences haIng taken place yes
terday .and previously, the Commission
ers discovered that not only will the
space provided for In the original speci
fications be required, but even more
room will be needed for the 00d pupils.
ALL, BIDS REJECTED.
An order was thereupon Issued,
rectlng that all bids received for
the Stevens-school Improvement shall be
jected, and that other proposals be
vcrtised for, upon a modified form.
Here is where the West End League
proposition seems to bo In luck. Dr.
Woodward, the health officer, has con
demned the Miner building as unEanltary.
Inasmuch as by the terms of their olfer
the trustees of the Miner building can
depend only upon the generosity ofCongress
for remuneration for the use of their
building, they may decline to incur the
added expense for renewing the plumbing,
and It Is probable, therefore, that the
Stevens school pupils will occupy the old
building for another year.
TEXT OF GAUUAGE CONTRACT.
The contract entered into between the
Commissioners, representing the District,
and Mr. Joshua N. Warfield for the colec
tlon and destruction of garbage, or'rtldes
that the latter will for the amount men
tioned as compensation therefor collect,
remove and cremate all garbage as f-prci-fled.
The term garbage includes refuse
animal and vegetable matterandcondirmied
food from the cily and Its more densely
populated suburbs, as Eaid suburbs may bo
designated from time to time by the Com
missioners. The contractor also obli
gates himself to collect, remove and cre
mate all dead animals In said District,
all for a period of four years and eight
months, beginning November 1, lfa95.
Method of disposal Is to be by the "Dixon"
or other method of cremation acceptable
to the Commissioners.
The contractor is also required to build
and maintain, without cost to the District
beyond the pricestated In the proposal, two
cremating plants, or three. If necessary, of
sufficient caiacity to dispose of, dally, the
entire garbage in the city of Washington and
the suburbs as designated by the Commis.

The pro islon as to the cost of introducing
the plants constitutes an important item to
tho contractor, and that is why he Is es
pecially interested in securing Indemnity
against loss in case the crematories shall fall
to do the work properly.
He In turn, requires the competing com
panies to give him a bond under which. In
caBe of failure, the plants are rerao cd at the
for the time consumed on work performed.
Bat two companies, the Brown and the
Dixon, have complied with the reqaire
ment. The health officer yesterday addressed a
letter to Contractor Joshua N". Warfield to
the effect that some one in his employ had
been advising persons to notify him direct
in cases of failures to properly collect the
refuse, and he was informed that this action
upon the part of his agents was contrary
to the regulations and must be discontinued.

Commissioner Powell Hopes to
Expend $650,000 on Streets.
ESTIMATE FOE NEXT YEAB
Engineer Deiiartment Curtailed for
Two Voirs, and Helmbnrsement
Will Be Solicited Result of tlio
Publication of an InconipleteScliol
ule lirooklnnd Citizens' IIcarln;ri
The principal outcome ot a bearing given
yesterday by the Commissioners to a delega
tion of prominent citizens ot Brooklond is
the disclosure which The Times Is enabled to
make of the liberal provision which the
Commissioners hope to make for street Im
provements in the appropriation bill for
1S9G-97, for which they are nowestlmating.
The effort of the board will be to not only
secure an appropriation equal to the usual
estimate ot $400,000, but to Increase that
amount by at least $250,000, to which the
Engineer Department Is justly entitled. This
will make an aggregate of $650,000, which
will enable tho Commissioners to provide for
all the streets in the tentative schedule now
under consideration, and to add a large
number ot thoroughfares to the list In lo
calities that have hitherto received little
more than promises.
WHAT BROOKLAXD WANTS.
The BrouUand delegation asked that
Twelfth street extended be completed
through to Brentwood road; wantcda more
liberal provision made for Providence
street, that It njuy be cow. trusteed through
to Queen's Chapel road, and that certain
cross streets be cared for. It was particu
larly desired that Lansing street shall be
completed and Improved, with an elevated
roadway built over the railroad.
President Lynch, of the Citizens' Associa
tion, stated that the schedule as published
In the Evening Star, contained no provision
for Twelfth street, and he aud his col
leagues hoped It would be-added to the li-t.
CommlssiouerPowell had in the meantime
scut for his chart, and when Mr. Lynch
spoke of the published schedule, he said:
'There Is an Item of $10,000 In the
schedule for the completion of Twelfth
"But It was not In the schedule pub
lished," he was Informed.
"That makes do difference," said Major
PUBLISHED WITHOUT AnTHORITlT.
"The Star had no authority for publish
ing that schedule. It is Incorrect, and
this Is the result. The schedule has
never been passed upon by the board. We
are not supposed to locate the individual
who is responsible for these premature
publications, and we, of course, know the
paper only in the matter.
"It Is a fact, though, that there Is
nn Item of $10,000 in the estimates for
Commissioner Powell slated later that
the estimates are being prepared, and If
tho revenues will admit of It, and he has
every reason to believe they will, tho In
crease to the figures given will be made.
0TIIER INTERESTS MORE PRESSING.
The Engineer Department, he said, has
had to give away before the demands of the
schools, the police force, the fire-department
and the health office. This Is es
pecially true as t.o the schools. For the
past two years the fund for the street Im
provements has been reduced to less than
$150,000 each. Instead of $400,000 asked
for, and in the next estimates, he said, the
effort would be to get at least half of what
had been given lo other-Intcrests that
couldn't be as well deferred.
Close a Mine, Fins Trains, and Search
Iahpemlng, Mich., Sept. 12. True to
promise, the section 2 1" mine, of the Lake
Superior Iron Company, was closed at 5
o'clock yesterday afternoon.
About 500 Btrikors watched the railway
depot and Junctions last night. The even
ing express on the South Shore road was
flagged Dear the Wlnthrop Junction. The
mob boarded the cars, going all through
them, but finding none of the hated scabs.
This stopping of trains and Interfering
with passengers is getting to be too great
a nuisarce to be long tolerated.

ot the Cambria, to wait upon other raining
