Western Union Company Denied
Permit to String Wires.
CLAIMS STATUTORY EIGHT

The Western Union Telegraph Company
recently asked permission of tbo Commis
sioners to erect anumberuf poles on Prince
ton street northwest, hejond the city
limits, for the purpose of stringing wires
for Its use, and on jesterduy received a
reply In which tlie request was refused. The
Commissioners objected tu the company
making its connections by that route, and
directed that It bo by Kenjon street, and
that the wires be strung on the poles of
the UrJghtwood Railway Company.
This raises u question that has often
been di bated and which ivai under dis
cussion a short time ago, as noted In The
Times. The company claims that undir
section CL'Oy, or the revised statutes, ami
also under a decision of the supreme court
or the District, a law and a decision, as
Is claimed, neither of which lias been re
pealed nor overruled, Its right to string
wires on any government or public thor
ouRhfare, cannot be abridged by the Dis
trict Commissioners or any other authority
Congress passed a law forbidding further
accumulation of overhead virt3luUie Utj,
but the priUlegc asked for, the company
claims, Is to irect polis for Its purpose
beyond the cltj limits.
It is also shown, from the company's
standpoint, and thcsupriine court ts under
stood to liaeal.so had the point In Icw,
that under section 5200 of the act preU
ou6lj quoted from, the reason for the ex
tension of telegraph company prlllegts
is gien. under that bectlon the com
panies are required to give prccodmco to
government misMiges, and to forward them
at such rates as may be fixed h the
Fottmnstcr General, thus establishing a
reciprocity of courtesies.
The eompauy " 111 make a claim for Its
vested rights under thelav. It Is under
stood, in tlie present Instance, and a bear
ing will be given on Friday.
The prhllego under dispute is for an
accommodation of the company sstem by
Princeton street, lietween Sherman aeuue
aud FourteeiiUi street.
Hotil proprietors and others whose enn
Ununnce in huMmex depends upon the pro
curing of "a license from the District Atses
Eor, have this year had to back' up their
applications with a certlficiteshowlrg com
pliance nltli the fire e'Scape law, have
had their attention called to sundry pro
visions of theennctnieut that liaveseeiningly
by the last Congress, and provides. In ad
dition to ri quiring the ere-ction of lire
e'Scapes. that the lallsiind corridors shall
be properlv lighted at night, when oc
cupied, that fire alarms or gongs f hall be
placed in eaclt ?or notifying occupants In
case of fire, and that rooms nf 1 etels
shall each ccntnln a notice descriptive of
tlie means of escape.
OPERATIVE FOR TIRST TIME.
Before securing a license tills Jear all
these requirements had to be met, and
nearly every hotel and other building, com
ing within the law, had been neglecting
the matter until reminded by a notice
which the nn'enilcd enactment made nec
essary, and which rendered the law ier
ative for the first time since its adoption.

Two hundred applications for liquor

tlie police for investigation, and of this
number thirtv have been returned com
pleted. WHAT COMPARISON SHOWS
A comparison of the rectlpts for tase
shows that the pajnients this year ag
gregate about what had lieen paid in at the
same date in November, 1891, tlie last
preceding semi-annual payment. The
applications for licenses this year are
slightly In excess of the number recorded
on the Gth of November last.
