Important Recommendations Submit* ted to Judge Montgomery To-day* LAWS NEEDED TO PROTECT TODTH FRO* EVIL IN FLUENCES?PUBLIC BUILDINGS IN AN UNSANITARY CONDITION ? PROTECTION AGAINST FIRE AT THE OO TERN KENT PRINTING OFFICE AND TBI THEATERS. When the grand jury came into the Criminal Court about noon to-day, after presenting Indict ments they presented the following report, signed toy all the members, which was read by the lore man, Mr. E. o. Davis: The grand jury have investigated the sev eral matters referred to them by his honor, the Judge of the Criminal Court, and beg to report: First, in reference to drinklng-saloons, pool-rooms, 4c. On these subjects we have examined a number of witnesses, among them the major and superin tendent, captain, and all the lieutenants of police. We found all the witnesses gentlemanly and will In? to Iidj ??rt ail the Information asked for, or In their power to give, we And there are in the Dis trict about 872 licensed saloons where Beverages are sold by the drink, all of which have complied with the law in obtaining their licenses. In addition to these there are about 302 places where liquor is sold In quantities not less than a pint, called wholesale liquor dealers. We also And that 1q a lew Isolated cases liquors are being sold In violation of law, but all such cases are prose cuted for such violation as soon as discovered. There are in the District about seventy licensed billiard or pool-rooms. Quite a number of these we find are patronized by boys and young men. We do not And that gambling Is practiced in these saloons, nor can we find that pom playing by boys from ten to twenty years old is a violation of any existing law; but we have no hesitation in declar ing as our unanimous Judgment that the tendency of such a state of affairs, and the fact that the ex istence of such places, wnere It Is possible for large numbers of boys to congregate and Indulge In gaming, drinking, and smoking, and where they are likely to be tnrown in contact with all kinds of desperate characters, is demoralizing in the ex treme to the youth of our city and ought not to be allowed to exist. And we beg to call the atten tion of the authorities, as well as our law-makers, to the same, and to earnestly request the District Commissioners to urge upon Congress the passage of such stringent laws as will surely arrest and suppress this great and growing evlL THE JAMES CREEK CANAL. We beg also to call attention to the condition of the James Creek canal, which is open from G street southwest to the river. From evidence before this grand Jury, we And the same to be a death trap, a cess-pool emitting foul odors, a fruitful source of disease and dangerous to life and Uinb; it has no railing or other enclosure, and accidents are very liable to occur; In fact, the record will show that many lives have been lost there in the past few years. We believe this canal in its present condition to be a nuisance, and recommend that the same be abated at once, either by belug en closed by a strong and substantial fence and regu larly dredged, or by being arched; the latter, we believe, would be more beneficial to health. THE POLICE FORCE. We believe that our police force, though small,ls very efficient and watchful, and for order and good government our city will compare favorably with any in the country. When we reAect that our entire DOllce force, whose duty It Is to guard and protect an area of 64 square miles, and a population of over 200,000 people, only numbers 271 officers included, we see at once how totally Inadequate such a force Is to furnish proper pro tection to life and property In this District, and we really wonder how they manage to do so well and preserve such good order. In addition to their regular pat rol duties, we And that a large number of police officer^ perhaps one-sixth of the entire force, have to attend the Police Court every day as witnesses, where they are detained from three to six hours, and thus officers are In many cases de prived of the rest they need to render them capable of properly discharging their duties. It also, we think, tends to discourage arrests. This, while it 18 necessary under our present system, tends to de tract from the efficiency of the entire force, and fur nishes additional reason for an increase of the same. And we recommend and respectfully ask that the police force of this District be Increased at least 100 men. IN FAVOR OP A MAGISTRATE SYSTEM. The present system of tria^er hearing causes In Pottee court, In addition to coflsumlng the time of Officers, we And does great injustice to persons arrested. It often happens that Innocent parties are arrested, and U such arrest occurs on Satur day an Innocent person is locked up and held at considerable expense until Monday morning, when, If there was provision for an Immediate hearing, the case could oe settled at onoe without expense to the Government and with less injustice to the accused. We recommend such legislation by Congress as will provide for the appointment of a sufficient number of police magistrates, stationed at conve nient points,with authority to hear and determine petty causes, as will enable all persons arrested for minor offenses to have an early hearing, and thus relieve the Police court and allow more time for deliberation In important cases. THE MUNICIPAL LAWS. We And that great and unnecessary Inconven ience In the administration of Justice in this Dis trict arises from the fact that as to municipal affairs there are three sets of laws In this Juris diction?one for Georgetown, one for the city of Washlngton, and one for the county proper. This, we think, could be easily remedied by an act of Congress repealing the ordinances of the council of Georgetown and of the Levy court, and ex tending to Georgetown and throughout the county all the municipal laws in force In Washington City not locally Inapplicable in the county. And we recommend that Congress be asked to take such action. THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY'S ASSISTANTS. We recommend that section 907 of the Revised Statutes of the District of Columbia be amended so as to increase the amount which the attorney of the United States for this District is permitted to ?ay to his deputies or assistants. By that section his amount is limited to four thousand ($4,000) dollars per annum. This gives but meagre com pensation to the assistants now employed, and it is a matter within our personal observation that the force of the district attorneys office is not large enough to meet the demands now made upon it. It frequently occurs that the grand Jury has to proceed without legal advice, because the district attorney and all his assistants are en gaged In court, and the examination of witnesses as a rule has to be conducted by the grand Jury alone. The district attorney should have one as sistant for grand Jury work especially, since that body is In almost continuous session In this Dis trict, but at present that Is manually impossible. INSANITARY CONDITION OF PUBLIC BUILDINGS. We have taxen testimony as to the condition of the different government buildings In this city, and And that the Treasury Department, Interior Department, and Post-Offlce Department build ings, are in a very bad sanitary condition, owing principally to the defective manner In which the sewers and sewer connections in them are con structed. From this cause the health and the lives of those wli occupy these buildings are endan gered. If such buildings were kept in such a con dition by a private Individual he would be liable to Indictment for maintaining a nuisance. We recommend that Congress be requested to provide a remedy for this great evil. THE GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE. We have made an examination of the Govern ment Printing Office,on northeast corner of square 624, North Capitol street and H northwest, and And the buildings fronting three hundred (300) feet on 11 street, and one hundred and seventy Ave (175) feet on North Capitol street, by a width of sixty (60) feet, and four stories in height; con structed, except the outer walls, of combustible materials, floors and ceilings being of wood, and evch floor is also fully stored with combustible m aerials, in this portion are employed on an average about fifteen (1,500) hundred persons, those on the two upper floors being principally fe males. The exits for .escape in case of flre or panic are. In our Judgment, totally inadequate. There are two Stalways constructed of wood on the three hundredfeil section, and only one of those extends above the second floor, leaving the third 1 and fourth floats in this section with but one stair way to those two upper floors, which, on account of the distance from, the ground floor, and the oc cupants being principally ramai^s, the risk of life is certainly great, connecting with those floors in the North Capitol street section there is but one narrow wooden stairway. The employes In this section being also princi pally females, the risk of life is even greater than in the H street section. The present flre escapes, as at present placed, could not be made use of by certainly thrw-fourths of the employes; nor could the perpendicular Iran ladders be used by the class of persons needing escape. To lire-proof this build ding would be to virtually reconstruct; but cer tainly provision should be made to protect the lives oi the persons engaged in It. We would therefore recommend that the present ^combustible stairways be removed and reconstruc tted of flre-proof materials, each of ample width; the one now terminating on second floor be con tinued to fourth floor. Each stairway should be enclosed with brick walls, and iron doors in same at each floor. This plan would divide this im mense space into four (4) separate nwUnnn, and prevent a general flre. We are thoroughly con vinced that ample and well protected flre-proof stairways, conveniently placed, are decidedly the best flre escapes that can be applied, especially for the class of persons inhabiting this structure. We would also recommend that the boilers be placed in a separate building, disconnected entirely from the present building. The ventilation can be made ample by constructing flues of galvanized iron against the walls, from each of the first, second, and thud stories to the fourth story, where the circulation provided is ample (or the ventila tion of the entire btUidln The arrangement now made to enclose the sir ? * iron doors wiiLwben vent conducting a flre one story to tk&ss above. TU aSPORM SCHOOL. En making an examination of the Reform School we And there is great risk of life to the in habitants of the dormitories, situated as they are stories or the buildings. And consld etrress ln 1111(1 the limited I ^ 57 ne stna11 door at the extreme the evenl 01 them passing the wSEi 1...I^ to by an inferior sized wooden stairway would ln case of a panic, or in rt^f?eventu' aJlre at the lower part of the stairs, chances of escape. And as they can J^ai, assistance from the fire department It Is an absolute necessity that there be Diared ofeachaw?n^>1th'lron flre-escaPe8 at the rear thenpper stories. And to pre nr?niinf destruction of the building, on nr^dnn ^ Potion, there should be ^ ample supply of water on sufficlen^^f^??0tDe ^ more steam-pumps of n?Mn^ capacity to control a Ore when origi nating In any part of the premises.

The stairway for exit, from stage to street, needs to be renewed, the same const ructed of iron, pro vlded with a substantial hand-rail. There is con siderable combustible material stored under the stage that should be removed. ?'ii1? ?,e"ian or oi(l Theater Comlque, situated corner llth and c streets northwest, is, we think.

London, June 18.?As jubilee day draws nearer other Interests and topics are overshadowed by It. All the west end of London Is transformed to-day to a fancy fair. The arrangements for Illumina tions are elaborate and unlversaL The streets literally blaze with bunting, turkey red, which covers all the grand stands and balconies. Every square Inch of space which commands a view of the procession has been utilized for a heat. Within my own knowledge one enterprising Individual paid one thousand pounds ior an empty establishment near Trafalgar Square, and has re-let seats at a profit of another thousand. Another speculator has similarly cleared five hundred pounds. The route of the procession Is a wilderness of carpentry and reeks of sawdust. Lodgings let at fabulous prices.

The Debate on the Irish Crime* BUI Closes Without Sunk Excitement, Special Cable Dispatch to Tn Etknino Stab. London, June is.?The expected scene in the house last night when the climax of coercive closure was reachea did not come off. At 5:30 the discussion of the sixth clause was resumed. As the clock In the tower struck 10, sir Charles Rus sell uttered the last words of the debate. The other fourteen clauses were passed at a blow. The scene was similar to that on the second reading of the bill when Gladstone and his followers left the house, but nothing like so Intense in degree. Xhoce was, of course, much cheering, plenty of disorderly, indignant cries, and a few amusing personal Incidents, but as a whole the occasion will not be specially remembered in the nlstory of parliamentary excitement. Every one is very a& nous about it this morning. The reflection in every one's mouth is that the so-called party of prudence and constitutionalism have set an ex ample to some future party of democratic terior lsm of which It will not be slow to avail Itself. The coerclonlsts, of course, ure jubilant, and talk as If the Irish question were nearly settled al ready. ^ London Literary Notes. Special Cable Dispatch to The Evening Stab.
