Revocation off John G. Bright' s
Commission as Inspector.
MT. PLEASANT SCHOOL MATTER
Inferior Slate Eooflng Ufied by Contractor
With Approval of tho Inspector Police
Caios Disposed Of, and Several Patrolmen
Fined Bids for Street Paving Not Satis"
faotory Proposals for Wator Meters.
The commission of Joseph G. Bright, an
inspector of construction of tho Mount
Pleasant school house, was revoked yes
terday, as tho result of the investigation
lately made of bis methods.
The report of the investigation was laid
before the Commissioners by tho building
inspector, and the conclusion of the matter
was summed up in the indorsement upon
tho papers authorized by tho board.
According to that indorsement Mr. Bright
pormltted tile " contractor to lay eighteen
hundred fet of No. 2 Teach Bottom slate,
instead of using tho best grade called for by
the specifications. The mutter was re
ported, and when called upon for an ex
planation Mr. Bright reported that tho
slate was ot the best quality and properly
The substitution of the inferior grado
caused a saving of nearly 50 percent, to tho
contractor, but under orders from tho
building inspector the alato -was removed
at the contractor's expense and the first
grade material put on In Its place.
It is said, in justice to Mr. Bright, that
he had a good deal of domestic affliction
when the slnto was being laid, and, while
he m ay have been unable after it waslald to
detect the difference between bast and No.
2 quality, ho made the mistake of reporting
it as of the best without knowing It to bo
POLICE CASES DISPOSED OP.
The Commissioners took action yesterday
afternoon in sundry police cases reported
from the trial board, as follows:
Private L. J. O'Dca, tried February 13,
1805, for conduct unbecoming an officer
and intoxication. He was adjudged guilty
by the trial board and his dismissal was
recommended, in view of his previous good
record, however, and -what was said in his
behalf by Lieut. McCathran, the findings
were overruled ami the patrolman was fined
$50. lie was warned that a repetition of
the offense -would cause his dhmllssal from
Private G. W. Itlcklcs, tried March 20
for gross neglect' of duty, charges dis
missed. Private "W. G. "Sweet, tried April 3,
1895, for conduct unbecoming an officer,
Private CharlcsFnrquhar.triPrt March 20,
1895, for neglect of duty, warned torbe
more careful In the future.
Private A. J. Kiramel, tried March 13,
1805, for gross neglect of duty, findings
for fine of $10 set aside, and in view of
previous warning $20 assessed.
Private 0. H. Brady, tried March IS,
1895, for conduct unbecoming an officer,
findings of not guilty overruled and fino
of $10 imposed.
Private Edward Stahl, tried March 13,
1805, for neglect of duty and disobedience,
lined $20 and warned that a repetition
of tho offense 'will Incur -dismissal rrom
Tho complaint recently made by Mr. P. S.
Carmody to tho crfect that he had received
no notice of the condemnation proceedings
for the opening of an alley In square 684
was the subject of correspondence between
the Commissioners nnd the Assessors as to
record of tiue. and jtsierday Mr. Trimble
filed his response.
MR. CAltMOD Y WITHOTjTTTTLE.
In a previous report he says: "The
records m this office show no real estate
assessed in the name of Carmody, or Francis
S Carmody, in square 684, for the year
1892, orup totho presenttime,"andn fuller
explanation, In his supplemental report of
yesterday, Is that "he received no deed In
fee simple in that year," 1892. "An
agreement was entered Into, dated May 2,
1892, between SusanE.MurrayandFrancis
S Carmody, for the purchase of certain lots,
upon certain conditions, conveyance of tho
I property being contingent upon tho compli
ance of tho terms by May a, ib07." "iso
evidence of a deed to Mr. Carmody," the
assessor says, "has reached this office, and
our records are correct, as heretofore
The report of the assessor has tho ap
proved of the Commissioners, and Mr. Car
mody will now be officially informed of
The proceedings were suspended upon tho
filing of Mr. Carmody's protest, until an
examination could be matle of hisgrievance.
It is possible that tho proceedings for the
opening otthc alley will be renewed at once.
The bids received on Friday by tho Com
missioner? for laying asphalt paving in the
District are not satisfactory to the board,
and the work will probably bo re-advertised.
There -were but three contractors rep
resented In the list of proposals, the Cran
ford Paving Company, the "Washington As
phalt Block and Tile Company and Thomas
H. Thomas. Tho bids offered were so much
in excess of last year's contract as to cause
a suspicion of a combine, although the
Commissioners do not admit that they aro
actuated by Buch a belief. Their desire 13
to have the work done at as low a figure as
possible consistent with good work, and they
Bee no reason why the price should go up
to the figures quoted in the proposals.
The subject was considered by the board
THE COMING -WATER METER.
Sealed proposals -were opened at the Dis
trict building yesterday for supplying water
meters under the regulations prescribed
by tho Commissioners, that take effect
Five firms made bids for furnishing
meters to pipes of6-8, 3-4, 1 1-2, 2, 8, 4,
5 and 6 inches diameter, respectively, but
the lowest proposal'has not been yet ascer
tained, and vrilL not be known for several
Tho firms represented -were tho Natioual
Meter Company ;theMetropolitan Company,
tho Union Meter Company, "Worthmgton &
Co., aad the Thompson-Houston Meter Com
pauy. The buildings Ht Nos. 805 D street north
west and 406 audlO Eighth street north--west,
have been examined by the assistaut
building inspector aud found to have de
fective rear -walls. The respective owners
have beon notified to have tho same made
safe within thirty days.
The Central Union Mission has obtained
permission to place electric lights at tho
front of the entrance to Its building on
Louisiana avenuo. Tho proposition was
once rejected, afterwards renewed, and
has ever since been held in abeyance, owing
to a supposed conflict -with the building
regulations. Tho Commissioners have, how
ever, decided that tho erection of a white
light, without lettering upon tho globe ,
can be allowed, especially as the presence
of the light above the sidewalk will prove
to be a public benefit.
The mission also obtained a permit for
the construction of a shed in which to house
its Gospel wagon. The site selected is in the
rear of Nos. 327 and 329 Cstrectnortheast.
GASSLIGHT COMPANY MUST EXPLAIN.
The Washington Gaslight Company,
under date of February 27 , obtained a per
mit to make an excavation in the sidewalk
for the purpose of connecting with premises
No. 1108 East Capitol street. The com
pany violated the permit by making acutin
the carriageway, and the Commissioners
addressed a letter to Secretary Bailey,
requiring an explanation of the act. A
letter was also addressed to Major Moore,
citing tho fact that so far as the board is
