and sidewalk stands at Center Market;
about forty in number; thc,other was made

The arrival or the two dtIigattoni at
the same time was the result of a mis
to appear on November I'.i.aa they had ar
rangiil with the Commissioners, they made
an appointment at a met ting or their own to
be heard yesterday instead. Tl.cy failed,
however, to make arrangements with the
Commissioners to that clfect. There wa
early Inquiry at Secretary TmdalPfc of
fice, whether they -would be heard and
whether Ueprescntative Wellington or Cum
lHTUnd. Md., would be proem, as cxpi ctcd.
The reply was that nothing was known ora
hearing for the marketnien, no hour had
been set and no meeting was expected.
About 11a. 111. Capt. J. 8. Miller and Mr.
J. I. Sauni cairn- from the Louisiana avenue
merchants, against whom the police moved
yesterday In repmne to the letter ad
dressed to Major Moore, by the Commis
sioners, three days ago. They were as
signed for nn audience at num.
A few inliiiitis after the hour the market
nien, headed b Hepresenlative Meredith of
Alexandria, mid their committee, accord
ing to tlie programme they had arranged
nltii Ihcinsrlrir-t marched Into the board
room, liv chance a lew minutes in advance
of the commission merchants.
Mr. Meredith brlelly introduced his consti
tuents as runners and dealers who for years
had wild mi this market and given resi
dents here the advantage of fnsh country
Mr. Wells A. Sherman, of Vienna. Va..
rend a paper urging that for a century they
and their fathers had ned the space from
which they were nliout to be excluded and
under aciR of Congress had acquired a prc
scriutli fright to It.
He pointed out that II street In fo wide that
four tennis and I wo electric cars can pass
along it abreast even when market w.-gi,ns
are backed up against the curb on bulb
sklis. Hut produce dealers who have no
curb-space Mop uutin the middle of the
street, sometimes unhitch their trams and
block the whole street. If the Commis
sioners want to fjieii the Mriet they only
need lo make this class f dealers mot eon.
The men who have spaces at the curb will
be glad to see it. The street thus cleared
will then bo as wide as Seventh or Ninth
streets without disturbing wagons at the
ONLY KNKORCING TIIK LAYV-
Col. Trucsdell .replied that the farmers
themselves had a skeil for the establishment
of the whole-ale market and the wholesale
dealer? asked that the men on the street
about Center Market be moved to the new
market. The Commissioners were simply
enforcing the law In complying Willi the
Mr. Arthur Stable of Sandy Springs.
Mil., representing hay producers, mm
plalneil that they were charged 15 cents
a load In addition to the fee for weighing
if the wagons stood at the haymarket fif
teen minutes after lielng weighed.
Commissioner Truesdell said they were
Informed this charge had leen in.ide.iK" by
the V,"ashlnglon Market Company when in
control of the hamarket. but no suth
charge had lieen made In 111.1 ny years.
Col. Triiodell then told the delegation
if they would get Congress to appropriate
money to maintain the wholesale market
no charge would be made there for weighing
hay or anything rise, but until then the
plans made must be oarried out. The
market place had lieen much Improved at
considerable expense and a roof woultl lie
provided as soon as pnhsible.
Mr. H. Uryan of Aiacostla. said it was
an unendurable hardship to be driven out
Into the rain and snow. If shelter were
provided lie was willing to go anywhero
tlie Commissioners di-olral. He cared
nothing for Center Market.
Major Powell said not half the dealers
could get under the Center Market shed.
Mr. Dryan replied that all who came
on stormy days found shtlter there. To
exclude them would cut off the market on
Mr. Meredith reminded the Commission
ers that retail men deserved as much con
sideraUon as wholesale.
Col. Ross said the board would consider
the matter carefully and would receive any
papcrsVsuhmltted. Mr. Sherman left the
paper from which, he read his argument.
The Commissioners have never shown
any purpose to recede from their order to
clear 11 street.
COMMISSION MEN'S PKOTEST.
Cnpt. 3. S. Miller spoke for the com
mission merchants. He (.aid they had
nsed the walk on Louisiana neniio for
many years. The sidewalk was forty
four feet wide -uud there was room left
forpassers. The place w.ismoren market
thoroughfare than an ordinary street.
The goods they Handled were iierishable
and It would lie impossible to do business
if they were required to keep within their
stores. He had been In the business
twenty-four year, hut if the order was
enforced tic wouIU have to try something
Mr. J. r. Saum said he had been here in
bisluess twentj-three jears. He remem
bered the time when such goods as they
haudled were all brought from the markets
of Baltimore, and were nei-essardy less
fresh when sold here than they ought to
be. The gentlemen present and represented
had established a market, furnishing
goods sold direct from farmers from all
the Stales. Including fruits from Cali
fornia. .This produce was presented fresh
and good by them.
The Commissioners had Just heard the
fanners' who came from the country, nut
these gentlemen, deserving of consideration
as they were, soldjinly 10 per cent, of the
country produce used here; the commission
merchants now liefore them sold the other
90 per rent. The Commissioners ought to
consider tbo protest the people would raise
If thlsmarkel were-eutoff, asltmustbe,if
the order were enforced.
HAVE TO TAKE WHAT CO.MES.
He made the point, that, as commission
men, they were not able to control the
quantity of goods they received. They must
take what shlpiicrs sent, and being over
crowded, must use the walk.
Mr. W. S. Hoge called attention to the
fact that IP they were obliged lo carry
goods into their stores within an hour
from its arrival, the sidewalk would bo
worse blocked than now, because there
would be a procession of truiks passing
all the time.
Col. Koss, for the board, said they would
lie. glad to look Into the matter and would
visitthe place to see what was lielng done.
Capt. Miller then resumed to say that
Thanksgiving was coming now, and It
wou!jJ..ie especially hard tu enforce the
ofder-iii the accompanying rash of busi
ness. They ought at least be given an
opportunity to notify the shippers that
they could not receive goods. He hoped
the order would be suspended pending
Col. Trucsdell said It roust be remem
bered that the' Commissioners did not
