POOREST WORK EYER DONE
Davis' Comment on Contractor
O'Day's Street Sweeping.
BOND BILL LIKELY TO PASS
Varying Opinions as to the Valno of Gai-jav-ing
Machines Many Minor Matters of In
terest Brought Before and Disposed of by
the District Commissioners.
James O'Diy, who has tho" contract for
raping and sweeping Pennsylyania avenue,
is in hot water again with Supt. A. U. 8.
Davis, of the street and alley cleaning de
partment. Recently O'Day was notified by tho Com
missioners that unless he did better work in
cleaning the Avenue the District would do it
at his expense. On July 27 O'Day asked the
Commissioners to allow him an extension of
thirty daj s to use the scrapers that wore
loaned him by the District, as the firm of
whom he had ordered now ones would not bo
able to ship them to him for two weeks or
more. This request was submitted by the
Commissioners to Supt. Da is, who, on July
31, replied as follows:
"On Juno SO fifteen scrapers were loaned
to Mr. O'Day for fifteen da s. At the end of
the fifteen days he made verbal request to re
tain them a few dnS longer, which request I
granted. July 21 1 addressed him a note ask
ing blm to return tho scrapers in as good
condition as when he received them not later
than the 31st instant. He wholly ignored tho
request 03 he does every request and sugges
tion from me or any officer of this depart
ment As an officer of tho District govern
ment whose duty it is to look after the inter
ests of the District I cannot directly or indi
rectly approve tne work ho is doing on Penn
pj I vaula avenue. My own observation and
the daily testimony of the three Inspectors,
whose sole official duty it is to inspect and
report upon the manner of work done, all
conclusively proves that Mr. O'Day is not
cany ing out his contract agreement to do the
work of cleaning rennshanla avenue as
"promptly and as efficiently" as his prede
cessor, Mr. Busk, did it. By recommending
that he be allowed "an extension of thirty
days to use the scrapers," which he now
asks, would be to give my consent to
have continued for thirty days longor the
poorest work that has ever been done oa
Pennsylvania nv enuo since I have besn con
nected with this department. I cannot do it,
nnd I trust that vou will direct Mr. O'Day to
comply with my'request of the 21th instant
without lurtner aeiay.
On the receipt of this report Commissioner
Boss ordered O'Day to return the sorapers by
August 15 without further extension of time.
VALUE OF OlS-SlTISa MiCHINES.
The Commissioners ye'terday approved En
gineer Commissioner Powell's recommenda
tion that a six months' contract with the Peo
ple's Gas-saving Association be made for the
ue of the gas-saving machines at current
price, and no increase.
This was due to the fact that tho contract
with the company by the District had
expired on June 20." M. S. Hopkins,
president of tho company, asked for
.1 continuance of the contract, no said that
the compensation of 540 per month for forty
machines was inadequate, and desired the
rato to be at 50. Building Inspector Ent
wisle submitted a report of the results of the
work done by the machines in twenty-one
buildings belonging to the District, and com
pared the operations of them in June, 1893,
iind 1894. The saving on the twenty-one
buildings was J3.C5. The cost of the ma
chines for that period was 21, thereby entail
ing a loss to the District of 17.35. 'The po
lite report," he says, "no change in
light, but in seven of tho engine-houses
they report the lights not so good as
beioro they were placed in them. It i, there
fore, evident that there is no economy in
using them, much less to allow the advance
Superintendent of Lamps Burnell also had
a hand in tho investigation of tho matter, his
report following Inspector Entwisle's. On
July 27 ho reported to cant. 1'oweii "that the
report of the inspector of buildings appears
to be erroneous in tho comparisons of the gas
bills of the police and fire departments for tho
month-- of June, 1693 and 1894."
He figured It out that the gas bills were $5
less with the governors than in the corre
sponding month of 1S93 without them in the
engine-houses. In the police station-houses
there was a saving of 1.25 for the month of
June, 1894. The present compensation for
the machines, he thinks, is enough. He says:
"That these governors do control the pres
sure nnd do save in the consumption of gas
is provel by the reports of Dr. S. C. Ford,
United States Inspector of Gas and Meters;
the bills of the nine police stations for the
v ears 1892 and 1893 6bow a saving of 525 in
one year, and under the ersonal obaerv ation
of the writer."
He Rays that the month of June is not a fair
test of the efficiency of these governors, for
the reason that tho consumption of gas during
that month is small.
Tho Commissioners yesterday issued tho
That all bids on sections A, B, C, and D for
constructing sewers are hereby rejected, and
sections E, F, G, U, I, and K are awarded to
the lowest bidder.
That a sewer be built in Florida avenue, be

a District employe. He asks what authority,
if any, has been granted the company by the
Commissioners to interfere with the pipe.
LOOKS WELL FOR THE BOND HILL.
Commissioner Boss said yesterday that Con
gress had not given the District all it needed,
but he was pleased with what was appropri
ated. "I was anxious," he said, "to get
63,000 to Improve the Georgetown market
houso. It is in an awful condition, and the
money was really neodod to put it in repair.
If it could have been remodeled there would
have come a good revenue from It."
"What are your hopes about the bond bill?"
"I think that everything favors its passage.
It has been acted upon favorably by tho Sen
ate committee, and I think that it will bo
passed by the Senate soon."
Assistant Attorney General Hall, of tho In
terior Department, esterdny rendered an
opinion that the supervision and control of
expenditures for the Trecdmen's Hospital
were placed under the care of tho Commis
sioners of the District of Columbia by the act
of March 3, 1893. He also holds that the con
trol of property heretofore purchased as well
as that hereafter to be purchased, was trans
ferred from the supervision of the Secretary
of the Interior nnd placed under tho Commis

the Commissioners that of the 800 appropri
ated for 1993 and 1891 for repairs to the police
court building $799.99 were expended for
general and minor repairs. The statement is
due to a request for it from the court officials.
The Washington Gas Light Company has

GRAND ARMY WILL PROTEST.
Numerous Dismissals of Soldier Clerks
Subject for Action by tho
"Sevonty-one of tho one hundred and fifty
employes recently dropped from tho rolls of
the record and pension division of tho War De
partment were Union veterans," said a G. A.
It. man last night.
"Some of them were advanced in years,
somo disabled for manual labor by wounds
received in line of military duty, and others
were in largo degree incapacitated for a
rough-and-tumble contest with the world by
reason of physical ailment contracted in the
service, but not one. as I believe, was lack
ing in ability, mentnlly or physically, to dis
charge the duties to which he had become ac
customed by his years of experience, and
they ought to have been retained, even If for
economy's sake, it should have been neces
sary to reduce their rate of salary."
The l'jt in which the soventy-ono appear
does not embrace all of the old soldiers, their
comrades say, who have been dismissed from
ottlce since the present administration came
power. It is alleged that many have
walked the plank at the Government Printing
Office; that others lost their heads in the Ag
ricultural Department, and that still others
have fallen outside the breastworks at tho
Pension Office and othor departments and
bnroaus, not all of whom wore replaced by
A gentleman who asked to have his namo
withheld for personal reasons, said to a
"When Secretary Morton came into office
he made a display or economy by demanding
the resignation of an assistant chief of divi
sion on the ground that ho was getting too
much silary for tho work performed. The
man was a Union veteran with but one leg.
Ho was getting 2 000 annual salary, but was
running the business of his division at a
great saving of expente to tho government.
Well, tho assistant chief declined to resign
nnd on August 31, 1893, be was dismissed
nnd a clerk of the 51.C00 grade, who had lust
been promoted from 81,200, a District man,
and not a soldier, was assigned to the duties.
On the 1st of last July that same man was
promoted and is now drawing the salary that
was saved by tho dismissal of the one-legged
"Can OU give the total number of Union
soldiers dismissed since March 1, 1891?" was
"No. I have it from good authority, how

DICTATING TO BENEDICT.
Joint Committee on Printing Accused of
Interference M itu Appointments.
The Interstate Democratic Association will
speak out this evening in regard to tho prop
osition now pending in Congress to confer
upon the Joint Committeo on Triuting the
right to dictate certain appointments in the
Government Printing Office.
It is alleged that the committee is not satis
fled with the way Publlp Printer Benedict is
managing affairs at the big print shop, nnd Is
trying to get a resolution through requiring
that the appointment of chief clerk, tho fore
man of printing and the foreman of binding
shall hereafter be madesubject to the commit
A prominent membcrof the Interstate Asso
ciation said to a Times reporter last night.
"The publlo wants to keep its c es on that
resolution. It is nothing but a scheme of the
Gorman-Richardson combine to control all
the appointments at the Government Print
ing Office, and if it pases the Publlo Printer
will be shorn of all his power over appoint
ments. "A man's record In tho office is what he is
supposed to depend upon for retention, but
if the joint committeo has tho three principal
subordinates In their service a record will
be just as the choose to make it. Senntor
Gorman nlready has a long list of appoint
ments to his credit, but I suppose be Is not
satisfied because Mr. Benedict could not find
more places for him. He wants to perfect a
plan by which men can be railroaded out, or
reduced, to make way for appointments or
Ihe same gentleman said the association
would probably pass resolutions this evening
condemning the proposition as un-Demo-cratic.

Sarah J. Baker, who for sometime had
been employed by Edward Stevens 03 a serv
ant in his house, No. 1S00 Bbode Island
avenue, esterday entered a suit for libel
against him and bis wife, Hortence Stevens,
and claims 5,000 damages. In her bill Sarah
J. Biker claims that on July 1G, 1894, Mrs.
Stevens accused her of having stolen two

that she had consulted a fortune teller, who
had told her that b.irah J. B iker was the

The National Sanitary Compiny, who have
the contract for removing garbage from thi3
city, have made for some time past a practice
of anchoring their scows off the southern end
of Alexandria in spite of strenuous objections
on the part of citizens of that town. On ac
count of that practice tbe section of the town
affected bos become almost uninhabitable.
Dr. Purvis, health officer of Alexandria,
directed the scow to be burned, but this did
not servo tho purpose, and yesterday dyna
mite was resorted to successfully. Dr. Purvis,
stated that cv ery other garbage, scow an
chored oil Alexandria will be similarly
