RELICS OF BARDAKISM THAT OUGHT TO COME DOWN.' What Colonol Hockwoll Hna to Say on tho Subjoct Douuty and Safoty Both Domnud Tholr Removal Moro Light nnd Watclimon Also Noodotl. Colouol Rockwell, tho Commissioner of Public Buildings and Grounds, was asked to-dny whothor tho high fences around tho public reservations, tho insuillclont Illumi nation and tho Inadequate forcoof watch men lu tbo parks do not tond to render such crimes as that comniltttcd in I.afiiyctto Park last night easy, and rendor tho reser vations dangerous. Colonel Rockwoll replied that tho ciso could not bo stated so strongly. Such crimes woro very iufrcqtioiit In tho purks, circles aud squares of tiio city, much lesi frequent than 011 tho public stroots. Ho always regarded tho high fonccs as detri mental to tho preservation of order and prevention of crl mo In tho parks. Whatever rendors tho reservation dilllciilt of accois of coursoaflbrds protcctlou toovll-dliposod persons rontemplatlng violations of law within tlioir limits and ineroa433 their loneliness. Ho favors tho removal of nil tho high fences, and has mado ovorv ell'ort to nttaln this object. It was decided, how ever, by his superiors that a chuso In an old appropriation bill, providing that nn portion of tbo monoy appropriated should bo used in tho removal of lion fences, err rlcd with It an implied Injunction against thorcmovnl of any of thoso foncos without tho permission of Congress. Colonel Rockwoll sees no argumont (u favor of tho high fences, while ho recog nizes many arguments against them. Thoy were erected originally for throo rowns first, because thoy wore regarded as or.ua mental; second, becauso thoy protcctod tho parks fjpni trespass by vagrant animals, and third, becauso they kopt people, adults nnd children, fiom walking on tho grass. All theso reasons have, in his opinion, dis appeared. Tho high fences aio no longer thought to bo ornamental; tho Pound master has n Horded protection from stray animals, and tho pcoplo havo learned not to deface public property and trespass on public reservations. Ho advocates tho removal of all high fences aud tho substitution ofsimplo cop ings, except on tho busiest streets, wlioro posts and chain fences nro desirable. Colonel Rockwell urged Congress to per mit him to icinnvo tho fences around tho triangles on both sides of Pennsylvania avenue, near Thirteenth street, and also around Washington Circle. In tho latter caEo permission was givon and tho work Is in progress. Concerning tho illumination of tho parks, Colonel Rockwoll says it is about as good as tho Illumination of tho public streets. Ho Is not suro that nny electric light system yet introduced would ho more oiiectuai, ns tho dense foliago rondon tho black shadows of tho olcctrlc-llght very in toDEO. Tiio only means at hl3 command for Impiovlug tho condition of alfalrs 13 tho gradual Increase of tho number of lamps, and this is being annually accomplished. In reference to tho watchmou ho says tho foico is entirely inadequate, but as largo ns Congress was willing to appropriate for. In Lafayette park thoro Is but ono watchman during tho day tlmo and uono nt uight. Tho police, however, oxtond as much pin tcctiou to tho park as i3 consistent with their other duties, and pas3 through nt in tervals of about two houM during the night. Colonel Rockwell has favored tho employment of n night watchman at each prominent reservation, but uudor prosont appropriations this can only bo dono for short periods just aftor extensive planting, or when special complaints nro mado, or disorderly assemblages hold in tho park.
