THE WASHINGTON TBIES. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 1913. ""'""
M FIRE FAVORED
Approve Senate Bill to Equip
Warehouses With Windows
That Are Safer.
Declaring that the present law re
garding flre escapes Is not free from
ambiguity and that difficulty is found
'n Its enforcement, the Commissioners
sent to Congress today a favorable re
port on the bill Introduced by Senator
(Jalllnger to amend the act requiring the
erection of lire escapes on certain "build
ings in the District. The bill changes
i he present law in several important
It provides for window protection In
fireproof buildings used for warehouses.
s"orage mercantile, or manufacturing
purposes, which the present law does
not require to be so equipped. It sub
stitutes in place of automatic iron shut
ters as protectiok against fln. wire
glam fn fireproof sash and frames.
Provision Is made that this equipment
shall not be required on buildings erect
ed prior to the passage of the bill.
The Commissioners recommend that
the bill be further amended so that
fireproof buildings used for office pur
pores above the second floor and for
mercantile or manufacturing purposes
shall be provided with safe and suf
ficient means of exit "of such dimen
sions, character, and number as the
'Commissioners may require."
The following arguments in favor of
the proposed legislation are presented
by the Commissioners In a letter to
Senator Gallinger. chairman of the Sen
ate District committee:
"If office buildings are required to be
provided with window protection
against fire, such buildings as are used
for warehouses storage, mercantile.
or manuafcturing purposes should be
likewise so provided. The Commis
sioners bellev that the wire glass In
flreprof sash and frames Is preferable
to the automatic iron shutter, as the
latter, being automatic, cannot be de
pended upon to operate when necessary.
Other shutters are objectionable be
cause they depend for effectiveness
upon fallible human agency.
"The Commissioners favor the exemp
tion froimtha requirements of the pro
posed law as to window protection of
the email number of fireproof buildings
now in existence. Some of these were
erected prior to the enactment of fire
escape laws, and others in compliance
with the fireproof regulations in force
at the time of their construction."

according to statement today at the De
partment of Justice, In addition to the

against the Delaware, Lackawanna and
Western railroad and the Delaware,
Lackawanna and Western Coal Com
pany. The additional suits will he filed, just
as is the Lackawanna suit, under the

of the companies in the alleged coal
trust will be far more reaching than
anything before attempted, according to
attorney a of the department.
The additional suits are being pre
pared by Assistant Attorney General
James C. McReynolds, and they will be
aimed at the coal companies affiliated
with the other coal carrying lines.
The petitions to the Vnited States

joined from transporting coal under ex

the coal companies and the railroad
companies In each case are practically
the same organization with common
stockholders. Conspiracy to maintain
the price of coal at a high charge Is
one of tho principal counts of the petitions.
