DICTATION OF

WHEN
i
Violators Punished Wrongfully
for Years, Judge Pugh
Decides.
COMMISSIONERS LACK
POWER OF ENFORCEMENT
Jurist Thanks Lawyers for Rais
j ing Point Against Regula
tions in Force Since 1870.
That no fine can be Imposed for
violations of the building regulations
of the District, which have been In
forced ever since 1870. xas a ques
tion raised by Attorneys Robert I,
Miller and George C. Gertman in the
District branch of the Folice Court
today, which caused a mild sensa
tion among the legal fraternity and
District officials.
JadgePugh, following preliminary
argument In the case, practically
ruled that the Commissioners have
no power In, the building regulations
niadeJby Congress, to impose perial
Ja... In Force For Years.
Although the regulations have been in
torce-ior years, nearly every week finding-
several persons convicted and lined
far-violating .them, not until today -was
the issue raised that the Imposition of
penalties was not wlCIln the power of
the Commlsloners.
It .was' .during the trial of the case of
the -District vs. Francis H. Javins that
the question was raised. Javins 'is
ekarffed -with altering .a shed In viola-on"or;t8erBnlatl6Tjs--hftihe
did rso
rtthout .permit; Attorneys Gertman,
A4 -Miller beganto argue the Invalid
ity of this penalty clause of the regula
tions as soonjis the trial of the case be
an. Almost Immediately every law
book: on the subject and every copy of
ue jmuili, vuuc vi uwb in me court
building- was in the hands of some in
quisitive lawyer.
Judge Thanks lawyers.
"You gentlemen certainly .are to be
thanked for raisins this question,'
the court said to the lawyers for the.
defendant. This lack- of a penalty
provision by Congress, the power of
the Commissioners to impose a pen
alty when not given the power by
Congress has worried me often during
By years on the bench. And strange
sot until today has the Issue been
raised.
"If there Is no power to impose a
penalty rthen there is no means of
enforcing the regulation.
That places the District building
Inspector's office In a very bad situ
ation. In , fact It places the local
government In a bad situation. If
this turns out as Messrs. Gertman
and Miller and the court at nruent
thinks It will Congress will have tol
pass a. jaw immediately giving the
Commissioners the power to enforce
the building regulations or the regu
lations will be as good as Invalid In
tOto.M
1 Calls Authority Implied.
.Assistant Corporation Council Will
lams argued that the power to impose
penalltes was implied by Congress when
passing the bill giving the local govern
ment the power to make the regula
tions. Thereupon Judge Pugh cited the "Seat
Tax Case." where the Commissioners
were empoweed by Congress to make
and enforce the seat tax on automo
biles. The test of the law showed that
Congress had given no power for thel
Commissioners to impose penalties fori
violations of the seat tax The Court'
of Appeals of the District ruled In the
"seat tax case" that unless Congress
specifically empowers the Commission-!
ers to impose a penalty for violations!
of the regulations which thev r m.
powered a make the imposition of such
penalltes is -old.

described himself as a stenographer,
committed suicide in the rooming
house kept by Miss Mary Knighton,
at 220 North Capitol street, by
asphyxiation.
The body was discovered at 10
o'clock today when a colored maid
went to clean up the room. Coroner
Nevitt viewed the body and ordered
.that it be taken to the morgue to
await the action of friends or rela
tives. Out of Work and Blind.
Mrs. Knighton said today she knew
nothing of the man beyond the fact
that he gave his name as either Wil
son or Williams, and said he was a
stenographer. He came to the house
last Friday, saying that he was going
to move and wanted a room for a few
days while Rooking for another apart

Heater Jet Turned On.
When the maid discovered the body
she found the heater jet was turned
wide open and the upper hall of the
house was reeking with gas. There
were no other occupants on the floor at
the top of the House on which the dead
man's room was and no notice was
taken of the f times of gas until the
body was discovered.
Hold Body for Relatives.
A Gospel Mission dlspensanp card
made out to C. L. William was found
in a pocket of the dead man's vest, but
no one there knew anything beyond
that he had been treated for cataracts
on both eyes. The clothes found in the
room were shabby and cheap and iT3
money was found either In the pockets
or in the room.
The body will be held at the morgue
for a short while In case relatives de
sire to give it burial. If nothing Is
heard from them It will be buried In

Great Powers.
CONSTANTINOPLE. Jan. 25. The
council of the Committee of Union and
Progress (Young Turks) today voted
unanimously to refuse to give up Adri

The Young Turks are the backers of
Enver Bey, the dictator of the revolu- '

as probable that their decision will be
the official reply of Turkey to the great

HALL TELLS COMMITTEE
OF OVERHAULING BOOKS
Reports Were Written in Ordi
nary Way, Declares Witness
to Congressmen.
After hearing much testimony con
cerning real estate values, the: ap
pralsement and rental, of the South
ern building, underwriting contracts,
and agents' commissions, the House
District Committee today turned, its
attention to -that particular feaure
of the Insurance investigation which
concerns the department of the Su
perintendent of Insurance.
William S. Hall, a statistician and
examiner Jn the office of Superin
tendent George W. Ingham, was on
the witness stand and was subjected
to a long examination regarding the
preparation of the reports on the
First National and Commercial Com
panies a document which has fig
ured throughout the entire Investi
gation. Denies Dictation.
Mr. Hall testified that the reports on
the two companies were ni ade In the
ordinary way, and he denied that Mr.
Ipgham had attempted, to dictate their
substance In any' way; .. '
Congressman Prouty and-"-the' witness;
spaHfor:alff"aour6te"eqtfJfPjr:
tlo'n of whether, the duty of an lnsur-,
ance examiner Is dueflrst to the .policy,
holders or the- stockholders. Mr. Hall
gave it as his personal opinion that the
policy holders should come In the prime
consideration.
Examiner Hall said that Superintend
ent Ingham had directed him about No
vember 1 to make an examination of
the First National's books and that
"Daniel Curry, another examiner, had
been assigned to the affairs of the Com
mercial. "The First National had Just started
in business." said Mr. Hall, "and the
Commercial had Increased its capital
r.tock. It is customary to make an ex
amination of a company which does
this, and the companies file with us a
certified copy tif the acts of the stock
holders and directors."
Helped Other Examiners.
Mr. Hall sail he finished his examina
tion of the books of the First National
and then aided Mr. Curry with the
Commercial.
"You remained In the , offices until
your work was done?" asked Attorney
Easby-Smlth.
"Yes." .
"How were the reports written"
"In the ordinary way. I wrote' the
report on the First National In the In
surance Department offices. We want
ed to mall a copy of the reports to
New Yoik right away."
Mr. Hall said he had nothing to do
with the Southern building appraisal,
except to check over the figures. -Mr.
TheCurry, he said, had written the
narrative part of the Commercial re
port, and they had discussed It as they
went along.
'Did any action of Mr. Ingham Jus
tify a statement that he stood over
Mr. Curry and made him write the
reporc V aijked Mr. Easby-Smlth.
Not in the slightest." said Mr.
Hall.
"No Forcing Of Figures."
The witness said the .eports were
In conventional form and there was
"no forcing of facts or figures.
There was nothing unuyual about the
ronnrlfl hA iwlrlpfl
"Is there anything In the reports sub
ject to criticism?" asked Attorney
Easby-Smlth, representing the Insur
ance superintendent.
"I do not think so," said Mr. Hall.
The witness then related the details
of a visit to Mr. Ingham by a Mr.
Godron. of tho New York State insur
ance department. uoruon, ne sum.

TROY, N. Y., Jan. 2S.-Not In many

tice Wesley O. Howard's bitter attack
on the "do-nothing" policy of the bench.
Howard, Justice of tho supreme court,
recently detailed to the appellate divi
sion by Governor Sulzer. was considered
for years a machine politician, but many
of bis recent utterances have been ul-tra-progrexnive.
In an address to the alumni of La

night threw all h!s former utterances
Into the shade, and declared that the
Judges of this country were doing more
to create anarchistic conditions than
anyone elKe.

Word comes to the public comfort committee headguarters
that many of the legislatures are blocking appropriations
for sending troops to Washington and quartering them
here. Militia organizations write that they want to come
for the inauguration,, but that at present they are deterred
from making anyplans by reason of legislative opposition.

London Fmce Fear MWtant
Women May Offer Viojenct
to Cabinet Members.
AH cabinet ministers today wera
guarded In their homes, offices and cm
the streets. Premier Asqulth was the
object of especial vigilance. London
actually feared a campaign of real vio
lence that would make child's play of
window-smashing, telephone wire cut-
ting and letter-box outrages.
At the same time that militancy
threatened to outdo Itself, the suffra
gettes started a new variety of propa
ganda. They induced a firm of London
publishers to issue a series of "votes
for women novels." The first on the
list is "The Poodle Woman," by Miss
Annesley KInealy, a leader In the move
ment. The books will not be mere suffrage
arguments, sugar-coated' with a story.
Ot her own book Miss KInealy said to
day: '
"It is not designed for forcible politi
cal reading, yet It does Incidentally
demonstrate how the injustice of pres
ent man-made laws affects women In
courtship, marriage, motherhood and
Industry."
.Miss Xenealy declares she has been
a suffragette since she was eight years
old, when she learned from her father.
a barrister, tnat a woman could never
become lord chancellor of England. I
A sersous ciasn oeiween tne suxrra-
gettes ana tne ponce is expected to take
place In Parliament square, when "uen
eral" Flora Drummond says she will
lead a large deputation of working
women to call on David Lloyd-George.
i chancellor of the exchequer.
The women asked Lloyd-George to
receive them today in the house of
commons, and he refused by letter.
"General" Drummond then wrote a 'let
ter to Lloyd-George warning him of
the visitation planned for tonight.
