Several of the Northern Liberty Market
claimants have viuited District Auditor

with another (statement. An attorney had

all other efforts would be futile.
Mr. Petty told tills gentleman and tha
others that no attorney Is uecebbary in tlie
Northern Liberty claims, and that a sim

would secure from that gentleman tlie
fullest consideration, and every chance
that any attorney's argument could he-cure-

Petty, however, and 'he determined yes
terday to make this statement for publi

Petty said to a reporter for The limes

One of the Mils is "to provide "or the
payment of final judgmentsof thesupreme
court of the District of Columbia under
'an act td provide a permanent system of
highways in that part of the DiMr'ct of
Columbia lying jutMdc of cities," approved
March 2, 18P3." This bill provides for
the Issue of SG.000,000 in "Ditrkt of
Columbia street extension bonds,' to bear
interest Ut 3 per cent, and to be paid
by the United States. The bill, which was
introduced last July, probably will be
Miperseded by that reeentlj prepared b
Corta .hsioncr Wack when it was found
that the street extentlou plan as rirst
adopted would not w-ork.
There is a bill "to amend the charter
or the Capital Ti action Company," pro
viding for-new underground electric mil
ways as branches to the present line.
One of them is run through the Capitol
grounds from the Baltimore aud Ohio
rtatlon branch to the main line.m H street

An extension is also provided on Park and
Howard avenues, f rum the end of th present
Fourteenth btreetlme to Seventeenth -trect.
and another running west from th present

One of the bills introduced Docember 8
provides for the extension of the Columbia
railway from its present eastern ter iimus
along Banning road to andacross the East
tern Fraud) , thence to the race course, the
Anaoostia road, and the eastern boundary of
the Dicti&l, only one fare to lie charged
over the whole line.
Senate bill 2044 provides for an under
ground electric i-ystem on the Anaoostia
road. Bill 2713, providing for the cvteiuion
of the Metropolitan road to Mount Pleasant,
already has been described.
A bill "relating to electric lighting wire
and conduits in the District of Columbia,"
introduced December 13, provides that until
electric lighting companies may lay si jail
conduits in allejsof all Hocks adjacent to
conduits. It also provides that all overhead
w ires nowin existence in the strnets irparks

Overhead wires outside the city limits and

direction of the Commissioners.
Knraps of Suburban Streets.
The DlbtricL Commissioner1; have sent
lo Chairman McMillan, of the Senate Dis

btate that tbe present haphazard nams iu
