CONCERNS OF THE DISTRICT
Attorney Thomas' Decision in the
Malonev Party Wall Matter.
Building Inspector Entwislo Dissents Com
missioners Dismiss the Charge of Neglect
of Duty Against Policeman Andrews
Jeweler Desio Comnlains of Schmid's Store.
Attorney Thomas advised tho Commission
ers yesterday of an important addition mado
by him to the bill he prepared for requiring
owners of vacant lots to keep them clear of
The papers were again referred to tho at
torney upon a suggestion mado by W. O.
Dodge, who expressed tho opinion that tho
presence of weeds upon the vacant spaces is
not so destructive to health ns aro tho pools
of stagnant water, and recommending that
the owners of such lots be required to reduce
them to grade, in order to provide against
dampness in tho walls of adjacent buildings.
Itegarding the suggestion as a good one, Mr.
Thomas has amended the regulation so as to
roquiro the grading to bo done. A regula
tion already provides against tho stagnnnt
The bill prepared by Mr. Thomas will affect
a great many of tho unimproved lots now
above grado and fronting on improved streets,
aeuues, and reservations.
The complaint of Connolly Brothers of an
alleged violation of the building regulations
by E. S. Muloney, in plneing windows in the
wall of a stable ad.oimug dots 10 and 11,
square 281. has recoivod tho attention of At
torney S. T. Thomas, and in an opinion ren
dered yesterday he sustained the complaint
ants. "It results." said Mr. Thomas, "'that tho
permit to Muloney to build his wall with win
dows in it, was lmprovideully Issued, tun wall
in question be:ug in law a party wall, lu my
opinion, tho permit having been issued ou
tne impression that it was not a party wall, it
should tw :noked so far no windows or open
ings are concerned."
The opinion of the attorney is at direct
variance with the views held uy tho building
inspector, who in the same cae decided that
the Maloney wall was not in law a party wall.
The wall is built on Maloney's lot, tho foot
ings alone projecting upon the Connolly lot.
Mr. Eutwisle insists that tho projection of
underground footings does not create a joint
riKUt to a wall, and that they were caused to
so project by reason that tho wall was. under
the regulations, required to ho set exactly in
the center of tho footings.
'"I did not expect the attorney to hold dif
ferently," said Mr. Entwislo yesterday. "Sev
eral years ago he decided in a case tnat nroso
on M street" northwest that a wall set on tho
building line destroyed tne casement of tho
adjoining owner, and that therefore tho wall
might be occupied as a party wall. Being on
record in that matter his views of tho ques
tion, as expressed in this iast opinion, were
anticipated by me. Of course he construes
the law as he understood it, and we caunot
always agree. I am of the opinion that the
Maloney wall is his own property."
OHAHOES AGAINST ANDREWS MS1I1SSED.
The findings of the trial board in the case
of Private W. W. Andrews, of the Metropoli
tan police force, for alleged neglect of duty,
have been approved by the Commissioners,
the verdict being that while guilty of the
specification, in view of tho facts shown at
the trial the charges should be dismissed.
Private Andrews was detailed Sopiom ber 1
to watch a disorderly house in a block on L
street, detween Half and South Capitol. He
proceeded to the duty in citizen's clothes,
and while officially employed was set upon
and injured by occupants of the suspecied
bouse. Sick from the effects of the bruises,
he sat down near the point where he was to
bo relieved from duty, between Fourth and
Fifth streets southeast, and fell asleep. When
found it was about 2 o'clock a. m. Pre
viously,however,he succeeded with assistance
in arresting his assailants and lodging tliem
in tho station-house. Before tno trial hoard
Andrews confessed to the circumstances, but
stated the extenuating facts. A man named
Cobb and two women and a man not named
were the partias arrested, one of tho men
kicking Andrews severely and adding to the
injuries by chewing the policeman's finger.
Coob was afterward fined $20 in the police
court for his jwirt in the transaction.

plaint with the health office of alleged objec
tionable odors arising from Schmid's bird
store adjoining Desio's premises. Dr. Wood
ward called at Schmid's and made an inspec
tion ot the surroundings. He said yestorday
that he found everything in Kood sanitary
condition, but bo learned afterward thnt Mr.
Desio's complaint was of the malodorous
eminntions when tho bird store is first opened

mainly upon the preparation of plans for a
permanent Bystem ol highways under tho act
of Mnrch. 1893, and in arranging .for carrying

tions tho first to bo disposed of iududes tho
most irregulnr groups of sub-divisions, such

DOCTORS DON'T THINK ALIKE.
Two Declare Snnford AVatcrs Insane and
Two Assert the Coiitrarj' Opinion.
The case of Sanford M. Waters was brought
up in tho police court yesterday morning.
Tho arrest of Waters was mado upon the com
plaint of Charles H. Cragen, who charged
him with intimidating and making threats
Tho causo of tho trouble dates back several
yoars when Waters was sent to ho St. Eliza
beth's Asylum for insanity. Upon his incar
ceration his wife, Mrs. Waters, was appointed
a committee to guard his property and tho
complainant in the case was made attorney.
Waters was also at that time receiving a
pension for war injuries.
During his confinement an undo died leav
ing considerable property to the defendant,
the renting receipts of which were, howover,
small, because of the slow improvements in
that locality. Waters at this time was paroled
from tho asylum, and upon inquiring into his
financial matters accused Cragen of prevent
ing him from receiving his money by influ
encing Mrs. Waters to colloct and" retain all
This belief increased to such a threatening
oxtent and Waters has acted so violently to
wards Cragen of late that tho latter secured
Waters' arrest. Drs. Patterson and Kelln
schraldt stated to the court that the defendant
was subject to delusions and would causo
trouble. In contradiction Drs. Nevitt and
Maylleld. the board of police surgeons, main
tained that he was sane.
While upon tho stand tho accused spoke
rationally. Upon making the decision. Judge
Miller said that theoretically the man was in
the asylum, and therefore beyond the juris
diction of the court, but on the other hand
the defendant had claimed to be able to recall
the occurrence of Wednesday last, the date of
the charge, and was, from his own admission,
within tho power of the law. Owing to the
circumstances of the case the court certified
tho defendant to the Secretary of tho Interior
for examination until such timo when he
could be tried for the offense chnrged.
Ministers Summoned in Haste.
London, Oct. 2. A special cabinet council
has been called for Tuesday next, and tho

David Blanchard, of Boston Tho Gham
pionWill' Begin with Bob and Take An
other Man Each Night Thereafter.
Boston, Oct. 2. Tho following ultimatum
was given out by William A. Brady, manager
for Champion James J. Corbctt:
''To Whom it Mat Concern:
''The Olympio Club of New Orleans claims
the right to declare Bobert Fitzsimmons
champion of the world if I do not meet him.
They bavo no right to do this, but rather than
give the queer lot of sports who aro praying
for my defeat the satisfaction ot seeing me
doclared ex-champion by default, I want to
put myself onjrecord as follows:
'I havo fooled this crowd twice before, and
I am going to take pleasuro in doing it again.
I do not propose that a foreigner shall tako
my title from me by default a title which I
honestly won by fighting men In my class.
Since I started on my career as a boxer I have
never refused to meet a heavy-weiirbt, and I
have always tried to follow a straight course.
Tho eagerness of Mr. Fitzsimmons to fight
me becomes apparent to all who study the
The Olympio Club needs nn attraction for
Mardi Gras week, next February, and they
figure that if they arrange the contest be
tween Mr. Fitzsimmons nnd myself it would I
draw a great deal of money. They are using
Mr. Fitzsimmons as a cut's paw to force me
into n contest in which I havo no right to
"What right had Fitzsimmons to sign a
contract with tne Olympio Club for a contest
with me lor a sum of money beforo tho de
tails of the light were arranged? How did ho
know but some other club might offer
more mouoy? What right had Fitzsimmons
or tho Olympio Club to name next February
as the date of tho fight?
HiS immense interests at stake.
"I havo Immenso interests at stako and I
havo plans with which I will allow no one to
interfere. I hope to havo considerable to say
about the purso, tho place, and the club
where the contest between Mr. Fitzsimmons
and myself shall tako place. I would rather
fight In New Orlcnns than in any other place
on earth, but I question tho right of tho
Olympic Club to tako the prejudiced stand
which thoy havo assumed in favor of Fitz
simmons. The newspapers are nidlng these
people in plHclng me In a false position, and
they did the same thing when Peter Jackson,
champion of Australia, drew down his money
and bneaked out of tho country like a aur.
'I am anxious to retire from pugilism, bnt
the gang of queer sports who are hoping that
I may be beaten shall never havo the satisfac
tion of saying that I showed the 'whito
feather.' They say that Fitzsimmons' monoy
talks and that I am not the right kind of a
champion because I refuse to break legiti
mate contracts and fight every Tom, Dick
and Harry at the drop of the hat.
"Now let these men who aro seeking noto
riety at mv expense get together all tho
flshters in the world who have 510,000 to
wager that I cannot defeat them, no weight
or color bRrrod. I will deposit 310,000 with
David Blanchard, of Boston, as an evidence
of good faith, and I will devote any ono week
after July 1 next to fighting one of them each
night during the week. I mean this, and this
will be the last timo I will ever train for a.
.TUIS OOES FOB ALL.
"Now, if you would be champions, Bobert
Fitzsimmons, Peter Jackson, Ed. Smith, or
Peter Maher, here is your chance. I will tako
Fitzsimmons Monday and after him first
come, first served. I will fight for the club
offering the largest purse. I bar no one; this
goes for all.
"The soreheads will say that this is a bluff,
but my money talks, and let some of them
cover It if they dare. Now, if New Orleans
wants a fighting carnival and desires to settle
who is the heavy-weight champion of tho
world this is their opportunity. I hope to
convince the public during the week arranged
by the club that I am what I claim to be, the
champion heavy-weight of the world.
"James J. Corbett."
This communication was received by Mr.
Brady this afternoon. The champion's raan
nger declares that it should convince the puD
lic that Corbett is not frightened at the chal
lenge that he has received of late and that
only business engagements prevent him from
accepting the defiance thrown down by Fitz
simmons. Mr. Brady states that he only
wants a fair show for his man and he will bo
perfectly satisfied with the results next July.
M. D.'S QUIET CONCLAVE.
Medical Association of the District Holds
Its Semi-annual Session.
Tho regular semi-annual meeting of the
Medical Association of the District was held
last evening in the law building of the George
town Universitv, on E street, between Fifth
nnd Sixth streets northwest Dr. Georgo
Byrd Harrison handled the gavel and Dr.
James D. Morgan, jr., did duty at the secre
Tho association does its work on the quiet,
admitting no one to its deliberations except
ing he can present membership credentials.
"It differs materially from other societies,"
said Dr. Woodward, iast night "It reserves
tho right to go into executive session, when
transacting business, and really there is but
little done nt any timo that would interest
anybody outside of its membership. Wo of
ten discuss each other and talk about appli
cants for membership in a way that would
not interest the general public."
Tho reporter mildly suggested a doubt upon
that point, and Dr. Woodward added:
"Well, it might bo of interest, but the asso
ciation is purely ethical, and it is not to be
classed with tho ordinary medical society
that is to say, its business concerns only its
membership, and it is therefore a private or
ganization." The hall was graced by a number of lady
physicians, among whom wa3 Dr. Anita New
comb McGee. Tho ladles seomed to bo qulto
at home, and had evidently proved them
selves equal to tho duty of keoping secrets,
since their affiliation with the association has
been of several years' duration.
It is evident, however, that physicians have
more ways than ono to dissect people, nnd
that they aro averse to disclosing their
methods of either operation.
Why They Oppose the -Miles Mandamus.
Secretary Carlisle and Internal Bevenuo
Commissioner .Miller yesterday, by Assistant
Attorney Goneral Whitney, filed in tho su
preme court of the District their answer to
tho application of the Miles Planting and
Manufacturing Company of Louisiana for a
writ of mandamus to compel tho respondents
to resume and continue tho official inspection
of cano-sugar production. It is contended
that the acts asked for in the petition are ex
ecutive and not ministerial in cnaracter; that
tho respondents are charged as part of their
official duty with tho construction of the reve
nue acts ot Congress, and that tho construc
tion so given by thorn is not reviewable by
any court upon application for a writ of man
damus. Oral arguments on tho application
for a writ of mandamus will be heard by the
court next Thursday.

JOHN JOY EDSON, President
Rock Creek Railway Denies Having Vio
lated the Interstate Commerce- Act.
The Rock Creek Railway Company denies
that it has violated any provisions of the In
terstate c6mmerce law, as charged by Charles
3T. "Willson, of Montgomery county, Md. In
fact, the company does not regard itself
amenable to that iiw, holding that tho road
does not properly coma under the definition
of "railroad" as contemplated in the act.
Henry E. Davis, as attorney for tho com
pany, has filed with the Interstate Commerce
Commission the company's reply to Mr. "Will
son's complaint, which was that tho company
had violated the interstate commerce law by
charging ono fare for its lino within the Dis- j
trict of Columbia and another for that part
lying in tho State of Maryland. '
Tho company denies that unjust or unlaw- '
ful rates of fare have been collected, and that ;
tho former charge of i 1-6 cents per passenger ,
was sufficient, avere that the present charge
of S cents is authorized by the charter un
der which it operates, and denies that the '
advance In rates was mado lor tne purpose oi
excludlnc- anv Dortion of the public from
using its lines or that any discrimination ha3
Tho double tickets disposed of to those de
siring to visit property owned in Montgomery
county by the Chevy Chase land Company
are supplied by tho railway to the company,
tho latter having a clear right to make such
further disposition of what they have pur
chased as seems proper.
Tho company protests that it is no more
amenable to criticism than if it should at the
request of a merchant sell him a ticket over
either ono of tho divisions at full rate, leaving
it to tho merchant to dispose of the same to
his customers, or in any other manner which
he might deem advantageous for his business
interests. And it is no concern of tho com
pany that by reason of tho manner by which
the Chevy Chase Land Companv disposes of
the tickets, certain persons favored by the
land company nra enabled to take a longer
rido on its roud than other persons not so fa
vored by tho land company.
It is nssorted that freight is handled by the
Rock Creek Railway only for the benefit of
residents along its line, and is not used by the
NORTH CAPITOL CHURCH'S DEBTS.
Thev Will Bo Assumed by the Methodist
Union of the District.
Tho Methodist Union of the District held
nn adjourned meeting last night at Wesley
Chapel, corner of Fifth and F streets. Presi
dent G. W. F. Swartzell was in the chair, and
Mr. E. F. Simpson acted as secretary, the
secretary, Dr. C. R. Clark, being absent.
After prayer Dy Mr. Alexander Ashley, tho
committee appointed at the last regular meet
ing to investigate tho flnanclnl condition of
North Capitol Church, made its report. The
committee, which consisted of P. L. Brooke,
Dr. C. R. Clarke, and G. W. F. Swartzell. re
ported thnt tho floating debt of North Cnpitol
Church amounted to .3.1fl0, in notes ranging
from $100 to $700, held principally by sub
contractors on tho work of building tho
church, which was completed in 1892.
The committee recommended that the
union assume this debt, and that tho trustees,
together with a committee from tho union,
tako the necessary steps to raise the amount
on a second mortgage. Dr. Baldwin moved
to substitute that a committeo of three bo ap
pointed to raise tho amount. As amended
tho report and rccommcndaticns wero
adopted. The chair appointed on the com
mitteo B. H. Stincmetz, Zephaniah Jones,
and Rev. L. T. Welderman.
The North Capitol Church property Is val
ued at about 535.000 and is mortgaged to tho
amount of $10,000. but no trouble is antici
pated in raising tho additional amount.
There wero present last night, besides the
officers, Rev. C. W. Baldwin, Rev. C. L. Pate,
