The board of equalization of assessments
has been organized and is now prepared
to hear complaints from property holders
concerning any inequalities In the recent
additions to the taxable values of tlie
These additions consist of new buildings
and enlargements of buildings recently
constructed, from which tax has not here
tofore been collected. There are other
items to be considered also, as or build

made ip tlie assessment list, and upon
which trtx 'musrbe paid unless the books
The importance of filing requests for
corrections is apparent when it 13 re
membered that no alterations can be
made after the tliirdilonday in July.
Taxpayers are- reminded that no as
sessments are under consideration except
ing as to the recently added list of im
provements. There was an important order passed
by the Board of Commissioners yesterday,
which will commend itself to laborers
and sub-contractors. The order is to the
effect that hereafter the general stipulations
of and .proposals for material and labor
shall contain a clause requiring contract
ors to punctually pay the workmen who
shall be employed upon them in cash cur
rent, and not in what i3 denominated store -pay
or orders. -
Also, that contractors shall from tirno
to time, and as often as required by the
Commissioners, furnish satisfactory evi
dence that all persons who have done
work or furnished materials havo been
paid as herein required.
PAY "WILL BE DEDUCTED.
Should such evidence be not furnished
such sum or sums as may be necessary
for such payment may, in the discretion
of the Commissioners, be retained until
such claims shall be fully satisfied.
Tho order amounts to a restoration of a
rule tome time Fiuee abandoned, but which
has been revived with amendments at
tho urgent request of purties interested.
Section -1 of street extension plans is
now under consideration. It is a contin
uation of tho original idea, and will m
cludo a grand boulevard 120 feet in
width and ten nnles in length.
In the fourth section the boulevard
will extend tromPort Mahon to Fort
Giobel. All of tho old "Washington de
fenses will -bo utilized as reservations,
and beautified accordingly.
There are about one dozen points in
tho section where earthworks were
thrown up during the civil war, and these
will bo specially marked, as noted.
The engineer commissioner is devoting
a great deal of attention to this feature
of tho section, and that which pertains
to tho boulevard, with a view to mak
ing It a perfect system.
Applications havo been filed for sub
divisions In tho territory, and a good
deal of time is being devoted to the
location of the streets and other thor
oughfares in order that these sub-divisions
may bo properly made.
The Commissioners arc considering an
amendment to the building regulations,
which will properly define the difference
between a show window and a bay
Under the present law a bay window is
permitted to project one foot farther than
a show window beyond the building line,
and there are those who make application
for construction of a bay window, with the
view of using it for the other purpose. It
is to obviato any difficulty in this matter
that the amendment is proposed.

In compliance with the order of Judge
Miller last week in the oases relating to the
occupancy of public Epaco Assistant Dis
trict Attorney Pugh had over eighty in
inrormations against Louisiana avenue
and Ohio aveuue merchants in police court
The first case brought up was thatagainst
John C. Isel. Attorney II. F. Woodward
appeared as counsel aud told tlie court he
meant to use tlie case as a test case. He
therefore pleaded not guilty to the charge
andl'olicemanBreen took the stand totestily
how Isel's meat stand obstructed the
Lonisiana avenue sidiwalk.
"The stand," h'e said, "is fourteeu feet
out from the building line."
"From tho line of the old building used
as an cnibalmlug establishment during
the war?" aBked his honor.
"No, the new building, an annex to tlie
old, which stands out not quito so fa"r,"
the officer anawered.
Tho defense theo argued that they had
procured a permit to place poles and
awning on the sidewalk.
"Show your permit," said Prosecutor
Tho peimlt, however, was not forth
coming and tho defense then questioned
the authority of the municipal body of this
city to enforce their own laws in reference
to the public thoroughfares.
The Secretary of tlie Interior got the
power to control the streets by an act of
Congress passed in the fifties," declared Mr.
"If the Secretary has such authority con
ferred on him by Congress," responded
Judge Kimball, "why has uot the District
a higher and broader right wheu directly
bidden by Congress to enforce all laws and
regulations on the highways of Washlug
tion? The upper courts have so decided
long ago and 1 abide by their decisions "
The court said he had heard enough for
a conviction and on a motion by Mr Wood
ward suspended sentence until to-day.

torney for the defense. "We will sue out
a writ of habeas corpus and the case will
have to go to a higher court for final
"In the other cases," added Mr. Wood
ward, "we are moving off the public tpaee
as fast as we can possibly can, and I will
ask for a continuance."
"If that is so," almost shouted tlie joy
ous Mr. Pugh, "I am willing to continue
tlie cases until to-morrow, provided, how
ever, that the sidewalks aro cleared "
The defendants promised to comply with
that condtiion and the cases went over.

VERDICT EXPECTED TO-DAY
Safe Burglars' Trial Is Rapidly
Drawius to a Close,
It Looks us If Auffort Will Ho Ac
quitted Arguments of Counsel
on IJotb Sides.
'Thls buyer of sheep ami seller of
chickens, Charli'dAuffort, led this murderer
of men, Billy "Williams, to burglary."
said ex-Congrcssnian Turner yesterday to
the jury in Judge Cole'seourt.
"That is TVhac the prosecution asks you
to believe," he weui on. "and I don't
think you can. I don't see how the Dis
trict Attorney himself can believe it.
More than that, you are asked to think that
thfs hardened criminal, who had bpent
eighteen years in prison, for burglary,
for assault to kill, for murder, tveut along
very reluctantly to do this job; only went
as a tort of human life preserver, to see
that nobody should be hurt.
'And he, the experienced cracksman,
stayed outside in the boat, while tho
huckster led the gang p blow open tho
safe. But you aro told Billy Williams had
reformed. How? VJiy, from being a tiH
tapper, thief, and pll-round crook to be a
writer of policy its. fie admits, ready to
burn a town for.$25 as we prove.
in similar manner much of the govern
ment testimony in support Of Williams'
story was gone over.
The argument began early in tho after
noon, aud Mr. Turner was speaking at the,
close of the day. Mr. Lipscomb will &pcak
thib morning and Mr Birney will close
for tlie government. A decisiou is os
petted beiore niglit,
Mr. Birney, in bpening the argument,
said lie did not ask the Jury to rely upon
the story of "Billy" Williams, except as
confirmed by the discoveries made under
his direction by the police and further
corroborated by the evidence of many
Mr. Charles BenO,iHm, v-ho follovred Mr.
Birney, ridiculed," the evidence offered
by the prosecution as almost puerile, and
commented upon what he called the ex
ceedingly weak evidence produced by the
efforts of the detective force.
Tlie closing of the evidence yesterday
morning was only in support of testimony
already offered. Desmond testified that
he was in a poker game from lip. in. to
1 a. m. on the night' of the burgary, and
Thomas S. Donadson, Harry Candor's bar
keeper, te&tified to the same effect.
Bradsha-w v.as jealous. There -was no
denying it. But -what can you expect or a
man -who is very much in love, or at least
thinks he is?
The mother of Ills charmer approved of
him and had promised a iriendly alliance,
but the charmer IierseK remained neutral
which, you must admit; looked doubtrul
for the alliance, and especially for Brad
Shav. He -was a -well-meaning, -well-conducted,
industrious young man, who by strict at
tention to business had become the confi
dential clerk of Mr. Joseph W. Lurnhy,
-wholesale dealer in tea, coffee, spices, etc.,
a liberal discount to the trade, etc
"But I tell you I don't care for him."
Miss Vera White spoke decidedly and looked
straight into her mother's eyes.
"He's a j'ouiig man of fcuch nice, steady
habits," remonstrated the mother.
"I know it."
"He's very much in earnest," sighed Mrs.
"So am I," retorted the daughter.
"Seems to me it's a thing to be in earnest
about. I should say it ought to be."
"But, my dear, you let him come here."
"It's you who let him."
"But you talk with him and go out with
him. I "don't think you dislike Mr. Brad
shaw." "No. I don't."
"You'll throw over a man who'll make
you a good husband and take up with
soino dashing, showy spendthrift yet."
"But, my dearest mother, the spend
thrift hasn't even appeared to ask to be
taken up. So what's the use of borrowing
trouble? I don't want to get married
anyway. I should havo to fall in lovo
first, you know. And, as I've got all that
to go through with, there's plenty of
"But, you know, dear, since the reduc
tion in the rates of interest our income has
grown so small that I can scarcely make
both ends meet. You- need more than
when you wore little and aud I don't
know what to do. I fcate to put a mort
gage on tho house."
"Oh, you mustn't do that! I will get
some work to do."
It was true there was very little to
live upon. Mrs. Wftwhad been a widow
for ten years. Yera. was her only child,
and at 19 was as unsophisticated in the
the ways of the world as many girls at 12.
It -was settled she should learn type
writing. Arter she ..had mastered it the
next thing was to fiud something to do.
Here Mr. Bradshajv came to the rescue
and got her a placo in.Mx. Burphy's private
office. Of course he didn't want them
to lose tho home lie 'had "had his eye on
it for some time., Ili$ desk was in Mr.
Burphy's office, aiil it was an admirable

"thoy call Mr. Burphy a crank. To be
sure, he is an old bachelor and has stuck
so closely to business all his life that it has
made him a little gruff and iecullar. But
if any oue could be with him as I have
been and could see the real tenderness un
derneath, the good he docslu a quiet way,
and the strict, fine integrity of the man,
they'd know, as I do, that he's one in ten
thousand. Oh, I'll look after Miss Vera;
she'll be all right, I asaiire you."
So Vera went to work. The next day
after she began, she made some rr'atake in
a dictation, aud Mr. Burphy spoke hharply
to her. The tears rushed to her eyed, but
sh& choked them back and bald quietly: "I
shall try faithfully to do what you wish.
IT 1 make too many mistakes aud don't
suit, you have only to beud me away."
There was something in the independ
ence of the answer that caused him to
think twice about her. He studied her
furtively and found the 6tudy interesting.
She attended strictly to busiuecs, and he
av.- that bho was intelligent and reliable.
After a time Mr. Bradshaw made an un
pleasant discovery, lie believed Miss Vera
was in love with her enplo3er. The signs
were to him unmistakable. It was here
that he became jealous.
Besides hK w n leelings in the matter, he
felt that he must save a young, innocent
girl from wrecking her happiness on a
man w.ho, he believed, cared no more for
her than the ledger on his desk.
So he resolved on a bold step He went
to Mr Burphy and told him he had reason
to believe little Miss White was in love
with him, and for her sake something
ought to be done to cure the infatuation.
Mr Burphy looked positively stunned,
but he agreed to do his best in any plan
llr. Bradshaw might suggest.
"Suppose you dictate a letter to a young
lady, showing your admiration, etc. How
would that do?"
"Excellent, excellent!" cried Mr. Bur
phy. Accordingly, the next day, after Miss
White took ber dictations, her employer in
a rather embarrassed manner gave her
"My Dear Miss (you can leave the name
blank) Will you ask your mother if I
may have the privilege or calling at your
home? I am anxiouslv awaiting a reply
Faithfully yours, JOSEPH W. BUKPKY."
Snniehow there were so many mistakes
in the letter she had to make a second
draft, and that wily old bachelor actually
saw her fingers tremble.
"I will address it myself," he said, taking
it from her.
"Beautiful," chuckled Bradshaw to
himself, seeing how finely his plan worked.
Tlie next day there wa3 another letter to
bo written to the same woman.
"I love you," it said. "I want to make
you my wife. If you care for me, say that
I may come to your homo tomorrow even
ing." This time the typewriter made worse
mistakes than before, and complained of
feeling ill. aud asked to'go home a little
before the time.
As she arose to put on her wraps, Mr.
Burphy sent Bradshaw out of the room for
"Will you please mail these letters for
me?" he said, handing her two. "And
and I wish you'd see if I've addres&ed them
She looked at them, then at him in a
"Why, tliey'ro addressed to me!"
"Yes," said Burphy, shortly. "Number
right? Please open them and see, too, if
the contents are correct?"
"Good heavens! Was it a dismissal?"
She opened the envelopes with trembling
fingers and a faint heart.
"Why, Mr. Burphy," she said, "it's a mis
take. Tbe.e are the letters I wmte to that
"No mistake at all. Quite correct," re
plied that businesslike individual very
brusquely. "Will you have the kindness
to give mo ray answer?"
"You may come to-morrow evening," she
said and ran out of the office.
"How did it work?" asked Mr. Bradshaw
when he came back.
"I'm afraid not just as you expected,"
replied tho proprietor with his back to

wedding cards. ALICE E. IVES.
Gallant, Yet Iturte.
At 10 a. m. yesterday an extremely
well-dressed and pretty young woman was
crossing tho City Hall Tark. She was
half way across the square when a man
garbed like a gentleman stopped her and
told her that an enormous "devil's darn
ing needle" was on her hack.
"If you will stand still a moment I will
kill it," ho said.
She smiled her thanks. The man pulled
off his derby and struck her two sound
ing blows with his hat some distance
below the waist. Tho young woman stood
as if petrified, then she turned and gave
her rescuer a glance in which astonish
ment, indignation and possibly thanks
were strangely mjngled. The man did
not notico her. He was inspecting the
darning-needle on ithe grouud, and the
pretty young woman walked on toward
the Brooklyn Bridge, tossing up a mental
pennv whether to be angry or not. New
