Commissioners' Latest Step in
Street Extension Suits.
BEQUEST TO JUDGE H5EM0N
Attorney General Asked to Gl(e Or
ders to District Attorney llirney to
Demand FiiUTIilrtyIiiys'Not ice for
Appc-nrauco In thuC7Ji;dcuiiiutlou
Procrodlujjsc Flirt her Delay.
The contention in the matter of street
extensions, under the plan recorded by
the Commissioners as the first section
under ttie provisions of the blglnvay act,
a hearing in vl.idi was ghen by Chief
Justice llingliam, In foully court. No. 1,
on Thursday, acnuired new interest jes
terilay, and a number i.f the attorneys
for the petitioners Tor ereater expedition
in the procccdlnc were consldcr.ibly ex
ercised over the de e!opnLiits.
It was stated to The Times by several
of the attorneys that the District Com
missioner bad gone or would go, to
Attorney General. Harmon with a icqucsx
for an order from bim to District Attorney
Birney, not to appear in the procretlinKs
on behalf of the United States at this
Juncture upon the notice received, but
demand the full thirty days' notice.
The significance of this move, as pointed
out, was only apparent when considered
wltii what bad previously transpired.
PUT THE ATTOKNEl'S IN A HOLE.
Mr. Birney had stated before Chief Jus
tice Bingham, at the bearing on Thursday,
that be would not require the full notice,
but would appear at any time upon notice
for the District In a hole, the iietitiouers
claimed, for without the ec-operation
of the United States Attorney they were
liable Hi lose their motion for continuance
as to all cases where all the petitioners
bad filed answers.
A consultation was had, several of the
contesting lawyers being present, and
letters were written stating their objec
tions to sucb procedure. A metseuger
was dispatched with these letters to the
Department of Justice, with Instructions
16 deliver' them'to the Attorney General.
The substance of the communications was
In part a reiiuest that no such ordersbould
bo glven,.jmd tbey were to be delivered
to General Harmon In any event, whether
the requestor the attorneys for tbo District
were filed or not.
" CA&ES'ilAY BETASSED.
When seen yesterday Air. Urney said be
bad received no communication from Gen.
Harmon. It was evident that the district
attorney bad beard of Uie proposed appli
cation for the order, but he did not say so,
and vcluntcered no Information.
The situation of these several Interests is
stated by an attorney to be that where all
thecUenls have been heard from In response
trtEtrrJoTlc'erilp'on which the limit expired
jNjjvemJifr lB.Jhe cases may be pressed
to a determination. This Is true or Ingle
jslds. subdivision, the B. F. Leighton sub
division, and probably others. In tbeformer
there are about fifty respondents; in the lat
ter about twenty-five. Mr. Chapln Brown,
farthfc Icgleslde petitioners, on Thursday
conceded the contention for the thirty
days, upon the promise of the attorneys for
the District that tbey would co-operate
thereafter for expedition In the matter, but
In the other case. In which Mr. W. L. Cole
was counsel, there was no concession, and
Tre Slatccryestfrday that he would press for
action ami would ask again that themarshal
uu auuionzea to summon cue jury co assess
the damages, lie had heard, also, that
others would do the same.
The claim is that an additional notice, as
asked for, will carry the cause over into
December, Jnst In advance of the Chrlstas
holidays, and that the proceedings coo then
be further prolonged upon some plea or
other, placing final determination beyond
the reach of the next session of Congress, in
case that 'body' shall require the full six
months for consideration, and this. It is
predicted, will be the case, since Congress
is proverbially slow in perfecting Dis
The case, will be further beard In the
equity court today, conslderaUon of it
having been postponed from Thursday to
give the counsel opportunity to agree upon
thrrfwm of the notice asked for.

SARAH BARNES ACQUITTED
Coroner's Jury Hold Her Guiltless
of Her Husband's Death.
Her Brother Iroved an Alibi eiud AUo
Went Kreo ltirm-i Fell and
llrokf 111m Neck.
All, or at least a great majority, of the
iuhabitants of the historic und classic
section of the tlty known aa"Bloodfleld,"
assembled at the Sixth precinct police sta
tion yesterday afternoon to attend the
Inquest held over the body of Kobert
Barnes, one of the recognized social lights
of that section. Barnes' wife and bis
brother-in-law were occufcd of having
caused bis death, but the Jury, after listen
ing to the testimony, de. ided that neither
Sarah Barnes nor Andrew Williams, the
brother-in-law, were guilty of the rrlrue.
In The Evening Times yesterday it was
inadvertently stated that Williams alone
bad been acquitted.
Mrs. Barues, the evidence Showed, had
made herself extremely unpopular in the
neighborhood. None of the witnesses could
tell the exact cause of her unpopularity, but
one ventured the opinion that she refused
to attend parlor socials and drink "hum
mers" with the other denizens of Nolan
court. The real cause, after all, ol Barnes'
death, was too liberal potations of the
Bloodfleld article of gin, which not only
Inebriates but also causes trouble.
They told the coroner of fights and quar
rels between Sarah and Robert. Told how
Robert was not much of a fighter and how
Sarah osed to beat bim. The skeleton In
the closet of many of the first families of
Illoodficld was exposed, and even the
relators wanted to see Sarah held for
the mnrderof her husband.
The delegation swore all sorts of things
against Barnes" better half. After about
fffteen of them had vented their spleen on
the exile of Nolan's court a little girl, Mary
Smallwood, a daughter of the prisoner, was
called. Mary Is very small, even for an
alley child, but she Is bright.
"Do you know what an oatbls?" asked
"Yes, sir," replied the child, and then
she began to tell about the flgbt. Coroner
ilammett was not to be put olt on the oath,
however, s he called a bait.
"What will become of yoa If you tell
"Send me to do reform school," replied
the infant prodigy from Nolan's court.
She was the only person there, and told
Just bow It happened, how Barnes was
chewing Sarah's finger, and described Just
how Sarah punched bim. She also told
of the fall down stairs. The child made
an excellent impression on the Jury.
Immediately after she left the eta ndSarnh
was put on aud told of the occurrence.
She showed the coroner attd the Jury whero
Barnes hail bitten her finger, and although
she persisted In calling Coroner Ilammett
"Judge." she made a. most eloquent plea
for lllierty. She bad wltneses called
back, and she cross-examined them aud
brought out the ill-feeling they bad for
her. She was tbe only one an to whoso
guilt there was any eloubt. Andy Will
lams, It was proved, was not even In tho
house nt the time of the accident, and
when she was allowed a chance at the
witnesses from Bloodfleld she convinced tho
Jury that she was.innocent.
When she was told of the verdict she
announced her intention of quilting that
part of the city at once.
Andy Williams, however, was not so
lucky. While he was acquitted of com
plicity in the murder of his sister's bus
band, be was arrested on a charge of
throwing stones. It seems that "Andy"
and some "Bloodficld" friends had en
gaged in a stone battle, nnd today Andy
will have a chance to tell Judge Kimball
how it occurred.
Canoed' by Gasoline.
A small fire, caused by the explosion
of a gasoline stove, took place yesterday
afternoou, about 4 o'clock, at the home
tif ElizabctU Dixon, 1032 New Jersey
avenue northwest. An alarm was turned

promptly upon the scene and soon extin
guished the flames.
Kicked Tin Cans.
Guilford White, a fourteen-year-old col
orexl boy, was arrested last night by Officer
Ligbtfoot, on the complaint of Mr. Louis
Magruder, who claimed that the boy caused
great annoyance by kicking tin cans nnd
yelling in the front of bis residence, 1511
Flftb street northwest.

for the chairmanship on the ground that
lie Is a "business" man. Mr. Babcock
was on the committee when It made the re
report favoring the bond bill, yrhjctu with a
few amendments was adopted as the child
of the Senate comtnjttee.
Air. Balicock was also on tbe committee
when several Investigations as to the lower
price of gas and other economic questions
wero made, but which ended In smoke. It
Is, therefore, interesting to note the zeal
with which it is contended that the old

of District afrairs.
One of the biggest attacks -on the com

tbe lobbyists on behalf of an enormoosly

one for the favor of the committee. Its

to make telling use of tbe special report
made by Mr. Ralston before the Hoard
of Trade, In which the fallacies of the j:as

the Board or Trade does .not take up nnd
consider the report which It asked ror by
resolution, that fact will also be. urged to
show that the board has discredited Its

In tbe meanwhile there Is to be prepared
a bill for the municipalization of gas pro
