MISS DRYSDALE'S CHANGE
An Opportunity for Der to Prove
MARSHAL'S JURY TO JUDGE
ltisv. Dr. Sunderland Finds in 3Ier
Letler.s mid Cuuverssdtiuii Ground
for tlic Belief That Site SIny Not
He Sufficiently Insane to He De
prived of Her Liberty.
Miss Annie F. Drysdule, the lady incar
cerated at St- Elizabeth's Hospital for the
Iiisane who believes herself sane, probably
will have tin opportunity in a few days, to
show this, if Mie can, heroic a jury- This
announcement was made at the District
building yesterday- Rev. Dr. Byron Sun
derland, the pre&Ident of the board of visitors
for the asylum, believes that there Is a
doubt of her iusanity and thai she deserves
a chunce to be heard.
Since Miss Drysdale's incarceration, in
1894, she has written three letters l the
Commissioners protesting her sanity r.nd
demanding a hearing. The story of her ease
up to Inst week was told in a recent issue
Her first letter to the Commissioners -was
referred to the attorney Tor the District.
It was returned by Mr. Thomas, with the
report that the lady had been committed
properly, after a regular Jury liad ad
Judged her of unsound mind. The second
letter from Miss Drysdule -was 'received
only a few days ago. It again averted
her sanity, and It made the charge that
she was cruelly treated by the asylum
authorities. This letter was referred to
Rev. Dr. Sunderland, who went out to She
asylum on Monday to see Miss Drysdale.
He had a long talk with her, and as a
result of this conversation the Commis
sioners have decided to give her a Jury
Dr. Sunderland bald yesterday:
"I think there may be mild hallucina
tions in the lady's mind at times, but I
am sure that she is not in any sense danger
ously Insane She talked rationally enougu
to me, and her letters ha'e the appearance
of faulty certainly.
"Tho li-dy alleges that she has never
been heard before or -ince her incarcer.i
tion Phe t-tates thatf a notice wnt mil
to hei of a hearing as to her alleged
Insanity hi 1894, but thnt she did not
attend it and wns not represented.
"As to the statements of Miss Drysdale
that she has been ill treated, exeppt in
tho possibility that she is wrongfully con
fined, I can find no evidence of it."
VU1TJI OF HOUSES.
ConimiKtlniici'h Authority Involved
In the lUehards ilnndnmus Cae.
The Richards mandamus case against
the Distrlnt, Coinmlhsioners, in which it
is sought to compel them to issue to Mr.
ItichaidK permits to build fifteen-feet wide
houses, is now under consideration by
them. The engineer department and the
office of the building inspector have
really little if any answei to make to the
bill of Mr. Richards. He states the
facts, ux;.ctl in his plea. He wantt.
tirtecnTeet wide houwb .and the Com
missioners have made a rule that sixteen
feet shall lie the minimum width limit
There is no depute about this.
It is stated at the office of the building
Inspector that there is a ery good reason
for not alio wins buildings under sixteen
feet, in addition to the one that there
must be a limit somewlie.t. In the old
houses where the width Is sometimes as
little as fourteen feet, the entrance is
iuvariablv into the front room of the
dwelling. Ibis arrangement has heen
found most unsanitary. Small houses
are almost always well heated and some
times ovei heated.
In wh.tur the opening of a door from jut
side iminediMely into one of the living
rooms is vpry dangerous to health. It is
almost impossible to build a house, with a
hail, less than sixteen feet wide.
The attorney for the District, in his
answer will contend that the Commissioners
undoubtedly have autliorlty to make such
building rules as they deem proper. Mr.
Thomas' answer will hen-adylna fewdays..

000 Sister of the Victim Iteturns
Home After All Is Over.
Susan Magee, a maiden lady, fifty eight
years old, was burned to death lant night
at 944 F stieet southwest.
She lived at that number with her sister,
Mrs. Swaii:, who is employed in one of
tlie department. Mrs. Swain went out
it night after dinner, leaving her sister
alone In tlie house. Miss Magee was a
rather large woman and partly paralysed
and ctippled with rheumatism.
Before Mrs. Swain went away she
closed the front of the house and left her
sister reading the evening papers in a
snull st wing room toward the rear or the
house. Beside her uu a table was a
student's Jatap, and in front of her a
Kinall coal stove.
It is supposed that the oil lady in some
manner accidentally "upset the lamp, which
ignited her clothing and .et fire to the
place, for shortly after 7 o'clock some
one in passing the house saw names aud
smoke shooting up Trout the middle ..f
A telephone call was sent in for the Ce
partment from Strickler's drug store on
the coiner, but before the engines arrived
Policeman Vermillion had reached the
house, and learning that the oid woman
was inside, hurst through the doors and
ran through the smoke and flames in an
effort to find her.
He had known Miss Macee and he .ietl
to stop and talk to her when passing her
house. He was aware -jt her infirmities
and knew that if caught in the burning
building she would be ttuahle to get out
alone. Twice the office, 's clothing caught
fire, and he was nearly suffocated with
fcinoke and finally drenched with water
when he wac forced to leave the burning
Sergt. Williams and Policeman Cnrry
followed liim in a M.arch for the woman,
as did a number of firemen.
In the meantime the whole interior of
the house had been iriitrert. nmt tr, tcr;i rmt
until the fire was partly extinguished that
fceigu Williams, with two other officers,
renewed thlrsearch, and found the iiurred
remains of Miss Magee near the door
leading from the little sewing-room to
It is supposed that in her efforts to
escape the woman fell upon the stove,
as rags from her clothiug were found
still clinging to the stove. She bad
evidently failen the instant her dress
took fire, and had been roasted alive,
and waft probably dead when Policeman
Vermillion was Searching through the
house for her, thinking perhaps she wis
on the second floor. Her body was
burned completely beyond recognition,
and in spots the fle.h was burned to the
bone, and one hand and one foot weru
completely burned off.
Mrs. Swain did not return home until
an hour or more after the accident and
