Tlioiuiiii' Opinion on tbe I'urtner
Flutit Liquor I.tceiiso-Cn.ne Report
ot the Industrial Home School.
A. W. Dow, inspector of asphalt and
cements, submitted to the Commissioners
bis annual report for Hie last fiscal year,
6howing a total or 0,701 inspections.
He says considerable change was made
during the year in asphalt pavement, by the
addition of a fine cand to a ennd similar
to that formerly used. Tills mixture is i.ot
commended, but urder the circumstances
it is the best that can be done. The only
fine Band now available is that dredged

41 suspicious, and r7 condemned.
As previously directed the Inspector has
gienn good dial of attention loan investi
gation of tl.e action ot the Potoiiiac water
on lead pipes.
Not long ago the Commissioners amended
the plumbing laws, so as to giye authority
for tbe nse of cast Iron piiics in the nater
service, in addition to lead pipes.
There was a chance that enough lead
might be commuiiicaud through the drink
ing water to poison some delicate per
son , and the Inspector was ordered to
test tbe water taken through lead plics,
under all corditions ns to time and source
of supply and surroundings.
There is a dicrslty ot opinion as to the
quantity of lead that Is required tn dam
age health, but taking the most conserva
tive estimate. It Is conceded that not
enough was found from any one tt made
to cause tne water to be injurious.
In order to have the conditions as nearly
equal as possible to those of actual service,
the Inspector, for the purpose ot making
bis test, had one new forty-foot lead sen 'ce
pipe attached In Anacostla and fifty fctt
of new lead pipe was also attached to the
high service main at the U street pumping
house. That contained in the latter pipe,
wa under high pressure, while the other
was low pressure, and each had tra eled tto
maximum distance in mains.
WHERE DANGER LIES.
The great source of danger, the inspector
says, is where the coating becomes detached
by a rapid flow ot water after the pipe
had been in disuse for some time. lie con
siders the matter ot sufficient Importance
to warrant a continuance or ttelmestlga
llon. In addition to having already supplied the
District water service with a new G,000,000
gallon pumping engine and outfit, tbe
Commissioners bavo advertised for pro

The first-named engine will undergo a
ten days' test as to Its power, beginnings
Monday, and at Its conclusion will be
put into use to supply the high-service area.
The one advertised for Is to be used in sup

These new engines are to take the place
of the old Gaskill engines that have been
In use tor a great many years, and besides
being too small arc now about worn out
and practically unfit Tor use.
They broke down notions ago, and with
the consent ot the contractor the new en

The attorney for the District, Mr. 8. T.
Thomas, has returned to the Commission
ers with an opinion the iiapers referred to
him from the excise board In respect to the
application of William T. Whclan for a
barroom-license at the Portncr Flats, No.
310 Seventh street southwest.
Mr. Thomas' opinion Is favorable to
Whclan'a contention and should the excise
board have no other point against him than
theoneupnn which thcopinlonlsformulated
he will doubtless get his license.
Objections were raised to the granting
of 'Wholan's license, upon the grounds
that under the liquor law, as amended,
license-is prohibited to nn applicant whose
place of business is within 400 feet ot
a public school, private school, or house
of worship, and the Tortncr Is within 400
feet of a private academy.
Attornoy Donaldson, "who Is said to rep
resent a rival saloon-keeper, naniod Sol
omon, in opposition to the applicant, had a
long conference with Mr. Thomas yesterday
and endeavored to convince him to his way
Falling in that he called on Commissioner
Powell and asked for permission to read
Mr. Thomas'oplnlon, but his request was
refused. He stated that he wanted to file
a brief with the excite be--rdt and for that
purpose desired to know the position
taken by Mr. Thomas.- -Mr. Madigau ob
jected to his Inspection until .the opinion
formally comes Into the possession of the
Mr. Thomas takes the ground that what
Congress really did in amending the excise
law was to Increase the number or rooms
required ror a hotel Trom twenty to twenty
five, and that If it had been Intended to
apply the amendment as a prohibition
against hotels, It would have been so
stated In terms.
nOTELS ALWAYS FAVORED.
Hotels, he says, have always been favored
In the application of tho liquor laws, from
early times to the present, and even under
the District law the hotel Is permitted
to dispense liquor on Sunday, If sales are
made to guests only.
Be decides that the Portncr Is not affected
by its proximity to the Sacred Heart Acad
emy. President McPherson has submitted to
the Commissioners his annual report of tbe
operations of tho Industrial Borne School
for the past fiscal year, from which these
extracts aro taken.
"Our own wards at the beginning of the
fiscal year numbered 62, and we had 14

The inquest on Walter Acton, the young
man who met his death at the new Library
Building Friday afternoon, was held
at tho First precinct station on Twelfth
ttreet jcstenlay afternoon at 1 o'clock.
Dr. Hammett conducted the investiga
tion. After the Jury was empaneled It
was found that only one witness had been
summoned, contrary to the express orders
of the coroner.
His ordor was misinterpreted and tho
coroner found It necessary to commence
the Investigation with but one witness,
Mr. John Chambers, local superintendent
ot the Sliced & Company Iron Works, of
Mr. Chambers was an eye-witness to
young Acton's death.
"I was standing on tbe scaffolding
around the main staircase." said he,
"when my attention was directed In a
railing body. I immediately loo Lid up
and saw )uung Acton In his descent. He
fell to the ground floor and was lustantly
"Our foreman was on the same floor
with blin. but he did not see the accident "
"I made Inquiry among the employes
Immcdinuly after Ihe accident, nnd round
that joung Acton had bim to the foreman
or the painters' gnrg and borrowed a lad
der. What he wanted with a ladder Is be
jond my conjecture, ns he was only em
ployed as n water boy and had no jivssib'c
use ror it.
"Tbe tppositlou Is ho cllher tripped or
fell, and as there was no tupport to catch
him his death was inevitable."
The Jury at this point n-nde n lecuest lo
sec the rcenc or Ihe accident and were taken
to the new library building ror that pur
pose. Abraham Jones, Jacob Krnuskoff, Otto
Itichter and William II. Strother, em
ployes on the building, who were worfc
Irg liar the scene or the accident, were
the other witnesses examined. None of
them saw the buy when he fell, but It
was the general Impression that he Tell
through an open trapdoor In the floor
of tbe scaffolding, through which mate
rial Is hauled up.
The examination of witnesses occupied
two hours, the Jury going out shortly after
3 o'c'ock. They were In consultation about
an hour and n half, and at -1 30 o'clock
returned the fallowing verdict:
"That the said Walter Acton came to
to his death accidentally at the Library
building Friday, September 13, at about
1:30 o'clock, while In the performance
or his duty, aid building belrg In course
or construction by the go'crnment. The
Jury also states that he came to his death
through the negligence fir parties unknown
to ll.em, through the construction or tho
scaffolding where he hail been working
by orders of his superiors, by reason or
an opening In the floor, which was not
properly guarded. 3'he Jury further rec
ommend that all such holes be properly
guarded when not In use."
Mr. Chambers took a copy ot the verdict,
and steps will be taken to prevent n re
currence of the accident In the future. The
verdict blames someone ror the death ot
the young man, but no further investiga
tion is contemplated.
Sergeant ot Tollce Joseph Acton, an
nncle of the dead boy. was present at the
Inquest. After announcing the verdict Dr.
Ilnmmett issued a certificate of death.
