Jn support of his request the collector
cites as a lact that in every city of Im
portance, and in many or less pcputatlou
than Washington, the collector of taxes
is provided velih a deputy.
The rccuiiuuei elation made by Col Davis
for tLo appointment of an atsistant to the
cashier was embodied in the last appro
priation bill, and lor a time it looked as
though there was a proipect or its success.
The House elimiiaied it, how ever, and the

According to Inspector Brady's report

"The necessity for such a provision,"
said Dr. Hammett, "was never better illus
trated than by a recent occurrence. A
body was tal en to the morgue, and after the
ueualformshadtreen observed, it wasburied,
the condition of the corpse being such as to
render delay imio6albIe. Two days later
a telegram was received from a friend of the
deceased person, asking that the body be
held for orders.
"With a modern morgue at command, the
body would have been kept to await identi
fication, a course impossible under the cir
cumstances." Dr. Hammett Is of the opinion that the
present, morgue is a disgrace to the city.
ADVANCE IN SALARIES.
Dlfctrlct Assessor Trimble, lu bis esU
niales for next year's appropriations, will,
it is understood, suggest an increase in
the salaries of his official force, recom
mending the following advances:
,r L absiam, from l,bL0 to $2,000;
second assistant, from $1,000 to $1,800;
one 'clerk, from $1,400 to $1,600; three
clerks, from $1,200 to $1,400; license
clerk-, from $1,200 to $1,100; one other
clerk in same service, also to $1,400, and
three to $1,000 each.
It has been slated that the assessor
will not ask for an increase in clerical
force, or, if auy, the additions rccom-n-ended
will be few, for temporary service.
M C- A. E. Handle, the owner of Congress
Heights, was before the Commissioners
to-day, looking after-the interests of lila
subdivision, and attended the opening of
bids for the new school building.
The last Congress made an appropriation
of $9,000 for the schoolhouse, una in ad
dition, passed two other bills for the
Heights, one for a bridge at feoutu Capitol
or First street, and the other for the
Incorporation of a trolley railway com
When built, the bridge will connect
Congress Heights with Washington city,
and, Mr. Handle says, will be an improve
ment of great value.
Bids were opened by the Commissioners
yesterday for the construction of a four
room school building at Congress Heights.
The bidders were:
John H. Howlett; $9,7C0; Arthur G.
Pumphrcy. $10,495; Fuss & Butler,
$11,490; Pavarlni & Greer, $9,999; D.
F. Mockabee, $9,589; Thomas E. Cabell,
$7,800; George W. Corbett, $9,300; and
C. Thomas ASon,$10,45G.
It Is probable that the time for com
pletion of the building will be extended to
June 16, In accordance with a suggestion
made prior to the opening of the bids. It
was represented that the time given in
the specifications was not sufficient.
Capt. George J. Fiebcger, first assistant
engineer Commissioner, returned to the
city yesterday, after a month's vacation.
