THE GARBAGE CREMATORY
Contractor Waifield Proposes to
Move it Down the RiYer.
SUBMITTED TO MR. WIGHT
-Tank Boats to Convey the Refuse
Fur from the City Where It May
lie Reduced Without Offense.
Faults of the -Present System
Commissioner Wight's efforts to provide
the Distiict with adequate and inoffensive
means of disposing of Us garbage will
probably soou be successful, resulting In
the substitution of the reduction system
for cremation, and the removal of the plant
from the center of the city to a point
se-.erul miles down the river.
Since the report or Health Officer Wood
waidcondeiiiningtheSmlth crematory back
of the old observatory as unsauitary, Com
missioner "Wight has had several Inter
views with 'Garbage Contractor WnifJeld
regaiding a change hi the system. In the
last or these, a few days ago, .Mr. War
fieldoutlined a system which, meeting with
Commissioner Wight's approval, he was
asked to put it lu writing, for bu'jmislou
to tin' board of Commissioners.
The plan is outlined by the contractor. It
was f-tated yesterday, provide for the
abandonment of the ohl wharf at the
foot of G street, where garbage has here
tofore been dumped, and tlie erection, or a
receiving plant upon the company's wharf
at the foot of South Capitol street.
This building will be fitted with a huge
hopper, into which all of the garbage, as
soon ah It is collected, will be dumped. The
hopper Is to communicate with scows, upon
which are placed a number of water-light
metallic tuuks. These tanks are to be ab
solutely water-proor, with tight-fitting cov
ers, and have an estimated capacity of five
tons. Kach bcow Is to be provided with
seeral of these tanks, and as soon as one
is filled and properly closed, another will
be brought into service, and so on, until
the scow iv louded.
When thin lb done a tug will come along
side and the ecow will ' towed some eight
or ten miles down the liver, where the
conti actor owns a large farm. At the
further end cf this farm, about a mile from
tlie river, the latest Improved reduction
plant will lie erected and a gravity railroad
ro.istructed to the water Tront. As soon as
a scowload or tanks arrives they will be
lirted o le after another to the elevated rail
way and run by gravity to the reduction
plant, where the garbage will be treated.
The tanks will be thoroughly cleaned be
foic tin j' arc sant back to the city In this
way the cominctor believes he will satis
factorily dispone of all the garbage in a
Military i launer and without exciting any
Should th river freeze over, making
navigat'on impossible, the reduction works
would lie shut down and the Brown
crematory, at the fxt of South Capitol
street, operated until the river is open.
The advpntages of this system are many.
It should be remembered that the G-street
wharr was abandoned because or the fact
th.it the garbage would have to be hauled
alon,: the entire river Trout, which would
be exrensive as well as uusatisraotory
Th. Commissioners, however, could improve
Hair stieet so that the garbage carts
would not nil be forced to traverse one
street on their way to the wharf.
It is believed that this plan would meet
with the approval of the Commissioners,
although as yet they have not had the
matter presented to them officially by
Garb.-.ge Contractor Warfield. As stated
In The limes already, the Commissioners
have notirietl Contractor Warfield that

OFI'ICKIt DUVALL'S CASE CLOSED.
Attorney TtiRh Says He Heard nim
T7he a Bad Word.
Tin trial of Elcycle Policeman J. A.
Duvall, charged with conduct unbecoming
au officer by District Paymaster Hope
H. Uatneillc. was concluded before the
tual Loard yesterday. The papers, with
the recommendation of the board, will
hardly reach Commissioner Wight before
the first or next week, sis the stenographic
testimony will have to be transcribed.
Yesterday's session was devoted almost
exclusively to hearing the testimony of
Prosecuting Attorney James L. T'ugh, in
whose office at the police court the alleged
offense was committed. After some delay
Mr. rugh put in his appearance and Capt.
Austin read to him the specifications
which charged Duvall with using "harsh,
violent and disrespectful language to tiie
chagrin and embarrassment of Mr. Hope
H. Dartieille, and against the discipline
and good order of the police force."
M". Pugh described the scene in his
office, and said he nolle prosbed the case
against DJiriiellle's brother because, !e
Ing an electric light inspector, he be
lieved Darncille should be allowed to
ride faster than other people. Tlie nolle

Policeman DuvalPs arrest. He heard the
officer use the word "d n" wnen the
paymaster spoke of preferring charges
Mr Pugh said, according to Judge
Kimball's ruling, "d n" was not punish
able an cursing or BWearlng, and he had
never prosecuted anyone for using the
word. In answer to a question by At
torney Eugene O'Neill, who appeared for
the policeman, Mr. Pugh said he was
not chagrined or embarrassed by hearing
Duvall iiFe the word "d n." The prose

word "h ," but he would not be cer

stated that, as Darncille was lea'.iug tlie
prosecuting attorney's office on the day
of the trouble, he turned, and shaking
his finger at Duvall, said. "I'll rix your
"Gentlemen," said Mr. Darneill", dram
atically, "I hope the eternal God may
strike mc dead if I used the words
'I'll fix your business,' or shook my
finger at Duvall."

BANQUET TO THE MEXICANS
Leading Washingtonians Entertain
the Distinguished Visitors.
Bright Speeches1 and an Excellent
Menu Contribute to Muke the
Occasion a Delightful One.
The party of Mexican capitalists ar.d
business men who are visiting thi city
were tendered a banquet by the repre
sentative business men of the city at
the Hotel Halelgh yesterday afternoon.
It was intended that the Board of
Trade should give a formal bauquet In j
honor of the visitors, but, owing to the
absence of several members from the
city, le was impossible to do this.
However, the somewhat informal arralr
proved a dfsUuct success in every way,
and the guests of the afternoon have
every reason to remember the courtesy
shown them by Washington's citizens.
Tlie menu was duiuty, the wines ex
cellent and the speeches bright and en

Mr. Lyndon II. Stevens, under whovj
charge the Mexican party is making its
tour, was the first called upon by Mr. War
ner for a speech. Ab Gen. Luis Terrazas,
ex-governor of the piovince of Chihuahua,
was unable to speak English, Mr. Stevens
expressed for him the appreciaUon felt
by the paily of the courtesy extended
them. He also spoke of the record of
Gen. Tcrruzas as having been elected gov
ernor of Chihuahua twenty-two times with
out a vote cast in opposiUon to him.
Gen. Terrazas, he said, was close to Presi
dent Diaz, and also a warm personal
friend of ex-Gov. Alexander Bhepherd,

Be Spile work.
Commissioner Butterwortb Orders
the Attorney to Show Cause Why
lie Should Kot Be Disbarred.
Mr. Benjamin Butterwortb, Commissioner
of Patents, in his official capucity, has Is
sued an order to the patent firm of A'ed
derburn & Co., of tills city, to show cause
why they should not be disbarred from
practice before the Tatent Office.
The charge against this rirrn Is that
of fraud. The oider of Commissioner But
terwortb recites certain charges which
have been made against the company by
other patent attorneys. They are briefly,
that the corporation either wilfully or by
reasou of gioss negligence makes improper
and incomplete searches or examliutUous
as to the patentability of various Inven
tions or designs, not such seaiches as its
clients believe aie made; that the com
pauy circulates advertising Intended to In
cite the persons to"Whom Itis sent to be
lieve that thsy can make large sums or
money In patenUng small articles very
easily, when, lu reality, such is not the
case, and that, further, the corporation is
usiug fraudulent matter in the way of Ieb
teis of lecommeudaUou in its advertising.
A reporter for .The Times called on
Commistioner Butterwortb at his home
last night to ask. him regarding the
order against dderburu 4 Co.
"I am acttaf, entirely as a Judge In
this matter, rt-rereelng these charges that
have been brought against Wedderburn by
other patent attorneys. I have no great
personal leeling either way in the mat
ter, though I confess that I have formedan
"However, I shall have the charges
against W"eddcrburn & Co. sifted to the
bottom, and shall give the firm every
opportunity to answer them and to dis
prove, them if they can do so. 1 have
already talked with their lawyers, and
have given them all the information that
I can regarding the nature of the charges
and what It will be necessary for them to
prove to get- their clients out of this
"I shall certainly make it my business
to prevent any such fraudulent use of
the Patent- Office as a small side ad
junct to a private business, as it is
alleged the Wedderburn corporation is
doing, if it Is proven against them or
against any one else."
Mr. John Weddeiburn, the head of the
firm of Wedderburn & Co., was seen
also at his home on Tenth stieet lelative
to the charges. He seemed very indig
nant about them, and said that they would
every one be not only dlsproven, but
shown to be mal.clous and entiiely with
"The whole trouble has arisen," said
Mr. Weddeiburn, "from the fact that
though good business methods and a
lltieral use of advertising I Lave made the
business of my concern flourish, while
that of less progressive concerns has
"All ot the methods of Uu's concern are
entirely legitimate and business-like, and
Commissioner Butterwortb will so con
sider them himself, as soon as he has
been put In possession of the facts. I
have no fear whatever that I shall be dis
barred from practice before the Patent
The order against Wedderburn & Co. re
cites that the company is charged with ad
vising clients that Inventions are patent
able, when In many Cases "it is evident
that no examination was made or that the
examination, if made, was not thorough,
but -willfully, or by reasons ot gross or In
excusable negligence and In violation of
the agreement made, incomplete, false and
deceptive, and not such as was contemplat
ed by the said persons or clients."
It is also charged that the company has
chuulated advertisements "intended to in
cite the persons to whom they are scut to
imagine and Jjelicve that munj ot the
mluor arts ot common civilized life are
untried fields for inventors; whereas you,
the said corporation, well know, or should
well know, that such arts arecommouand
familiar fields: of invention, and further
that the said persons to whom such circu
lars are sent arc' thus led to conceive and
make invention relative to such arts and
to apply for patents for such inventions,
whereas, In fact, 'others have obtained
previous patents for the same inventions;
and the said persons are also induced by
promises and offers of medals and prizes

We told you we didn't think we could get more. We
didn't! But we tried, and here is another lot about half
