Gratitude to the Firemen.
When the Messrs. Woodward and Lothrop
saw to-day what serious loss had been pre- \
yented by the prompt work of the Are depart
ment at the fire in their store last night they
sent the Commissioners a check for $250 with
the request that the amount "be placed to the
credit of the firemen's relief fund in gratitude
for the promptness and elliciency of the fire
department in averting what might have been
to us a very disastrous fire." They also sent
to Chief Parrit twenty fire-dollar bills ($100)
to be distributed among the members of the
fire department who war* called into service at
last night's fire.

THE ASSESSORS' FUND SHORT.
Sunday Work in July will have to be
Provided for by a Deficiency Bill.
Messrs. 8. M. Golden, Benj. D. Carpenter,
Thos. L. Cropley, Fielder P. Hackncr, Jno. A.
Rheem, Thos. B. Shoemaker, Abraham F.
Barker, Thos. B. Kalbfus, ?. Nash, Wm. H.
Pritchett, Wm. T. Bright and O. Neville
Moore, the subassessors, yesterday after
noon visited the Commissioner* with the
object of securing the immediate payment
of the balance due those of them
who claimed payment for work done on Hun
day* during July. They also complained that
the payment of the amount due them for work
done on secular days in Julv was unnecessarily
delayed. Auditor Petty, who was present at
the interview, stated, with reference to the
complaint as to Sunday work, that the payment
of the amount still due the assessors for such
work had not been made for the reason that a
portion of the indebtedness incurred in the
preparation of the general assessment would
have to be provided for by a deficiency appro
priation and that the claim of the assessor* for
the amount due them for Sunday work was not
entitled to preference over the claim of any
other cla^i* of creditors to be paid ont of that
fund. All the assessors who claimed pay for
Sunday work have received the amount
claimed up to July 1.
One of the apseasor* alleged that payments
had been made from the appropriation for
services not properlv chargeable thereto, but
the allegation was denied. The interview ou
the pari of the assessors was spiced with con
siderable feeling.
With reference to the complaint of delay in
making the payment* due for the secular days'
work in July the auditor stated that he had
thought it advisable to avoid making an addi
tional pay roll for the five day* in August,
which wouldcomplete the assessors'term of serv
ice. and to make one rather than to make two
rolls?one for Julv and one for the five days in
August?and that he had understood from some
of the assessors that this course whs not objec
tionable to them. If he had thought that there
was any imperative necessity for the paymeut
of the amount due in July he would have paid
the assessors for that month when the enher
District employes were paid.
The congressional appropriation to defray
the expense of assessing property in the Dis
trict and for the preparation of the numerical
books was 815,000. There are twelve subas
sessors. who are to receive f 5 per day for not
more than ISO day*. Their time expires next
Monday.
THE LAW AS TO PAWN BROKERS.
Arguments in the Police Court in the
Test Case of P. C. Merry.
In the Police Court yesterday after The
Stau's report closed, in the case of P. C. Merry,
the junk dealer in Georgetown charged by In
spector Block with violating the police regula
tions relating to the purchase of second-hand
articles, Mr. W. A. Cook continued his argu
ment in support of hi* claim that the regula
tions are illegal. He argued that the regula
tion under which this case was brought is an
unreasonable and oppressive one and that if
enforced his client would be forced out of busi
ness. He called special attention to the section
giving the police power to search and make
seizure* of alleged stolen property without war
raut and said that such a regulation wa* an un
just as well as an illegal one.
THE THREE QBOUNDS OF THE DEFENSE.
Mr. Cook did not dispute the facts as shown
by the prosecution, but contended that the
regulation was invalid upon threo grounds:
1st. That the regulation wa* unusual and un
reasonable. 2d. That the act of Congress does
not confer the power exercised by the Commis
sioner*. 3d. Tnat the regulation is unconsti
tutional, inasmuch as it is in restraint of trade
and an unwarrantable interference with the
rights of private property. Counsel presented
various authorities in support of his positiou
and cited an Illinois decision to the effect that
a municipal ordinance which required drug
gists to enter in a book the name and descrip
tion of every person to whom they sold intoxi
cating liauors wa* unreasonable and uncon
stitutional.
THE POSITION or THE PROSECUTION.
Mr. Shillington opened hi* argument for the
district by calling the court's attention to the
fact that the act of Congress passed in January,
1887, authorizes the Commissioners of the
District of Columbia to make usual and reason
able police regulations and prescribes the sub
jects over which they shall exercise such
power. Section 1 of that act directs that such
regulation* shall be made for the full inspec
tion at all reasonable times of pawn offices,
places where second-handclothing i* bought and
sold, and junk dealers' establishments. In pur
suance of the statute the commissioners made
a regulation requiring pawn brokers and Juuk
dealers to keep a book in which shall be fairly
written in English a complete record of their
daily transactions, including a description of
the articles purchased, the name and residence
of the parties selling or pawning the same
and other facta and circumstances respecting
?uch pawn or purchase.
THE COIOUMIOXEBS HAVE FULL AUTHORITY.
Mr. Shillington contended that the statute
gave the Commissioners fall authority to make
the regulation in question. That while the
act does not specify how such inspection shall
be mfcde it confers upon the Commissioners, in
their discretion, to provide the means and
methods by which the object and purpose of
the act shall be attained. Mr. Shillington
stated that because of the peculiar character of
the business of pawn brokers thieves' resort to
them to dispose of their plunder, and conse
quently. a vigilant police supervision is neces
sary to discover and prevent crime. Such
control, when reasonably exercised, is not a
restraint or interference with their business,
bat * legal and necessary supervision in which
the public is interested. Mr. Shillington
exhibited various ordinances of a similar char
acter in foree in other cities and contended
for that ra?an that they were not unusual.
Authorities were then offered to show they
were reasonable. Mr. Shillington had not eoo
eluded when the court adjourned.
The argument will be resumed this after
noon.

that the constitutional convention baa adopted

WTCKKTAKY BOBLE's BEKPONSK.
Secretary Noble at once forwarded a re
?ponse. quoting in full the act of October 2.
1888, which providea for the survey and the se
lection of sites for reservoir* in the arid regieua
of the country by the geological sorvev. The
Secretary adds:
This is the law of to-day unreversed, unre

eventually absolute control of every acre of

between the territories of Idaho and Utah, and
parties enteriug upon these lands in either
territory will be subjected to the superior title

I have directed the commissioner of the land
office to notify the local officers of this lsw and
prohibit entries of the kind you specify, and
I have also ordered the superintendent of
the geological survey to proceed rapidlv
with the surveys on Bear river. The
statute, you observe, reserves these land*
from the date thereof, and the assistant
attorney general of this department agrees
with me that it is constitutional and effective
to the extent expressed. I fullv appreciate the
conflict of rights that must arise between
territories and between territories and
states, bnt these all can and will be better regu

and contradictory legislation. I fear that the

A Decision that the District Will Have
to Pay Half the Expeuse.
The Commissioners have received a commu
nication from the first controller iu relation to
the question* recently submitted to him by the
Commissioners relative to paying for the es
tablishment of the Zoological park. It is
learned that the opinion of the controller i?
that the District will have to pay oue-half of

A WESTERN HI'STLER.
He Invades the Office of the Sccoud
Assistant Postmaster General.
, A specie* of a w estern cyclone struck the sec
ond assistant postmaster general's office to-day.
CoL Whitfield was away, but the door leading
from his room into Major Pollock's room was
open. The major wa* placidly engaged with the
aid of a messenger in affixing his signature to
a pile of papers and thinking about his recent
experiences in the Pine liidge Indian reserva
tion. when suddehly a man rushed through the
door between the rooms and shouted o'ut
"Is Whitfield inT*
The messenger plainly intimated that the
second assistant postmaster general was out of
tho city, while the major wls looking at the
visitor to see if it was the President of the
United States or tbegeueral of the army.
PCLL IXJWX THE MAP.
"Pull down the map of Sew York state." or
dered the stranger, pointing to a roll of maps
hanging on the wall. 'T have seen Clarkson
about that mail route and we have decided it
must be done. I want it done right
away, as I have not been accustomed
to stay about Washington long. I have got
to go up,to the White House to see Harrison
and have an engagement at the Treasury de
partment to see Windom, so I haven't much
time."
"Jim.' the major managed to gasp out. ad
dressing the messenger, "shut the doors; there
must be a high wind and something else might
blow in."
The stranger repeated several times that he
Ti* ?n ?.nKagemeut at the White House, and
then looking at the map a few minutes he left
as suddenly as he came in.
Sot LIKE DAKOTA.
The major gazed after his retreating form,
and then remarked confidentially to his clerk,
Mr. Stone: "I know what they would do with
such a fellow if he struck Dakota; but I goes*."
he added iu a regretful tone, "the same thing
would not do here."
The major sighed as he took in his pen
again. Mr. Stone looked sad. and even the
.Messenger seemed to be depressed bv the re
flection that ft ashingtou was not Dakota.
A LIVING SKELETON.
The Emaciated and Weakened Body of
Maurice Adlcr.
Forty-six days have elapsed since Maurice
Adlcr was shot down by F. K. Ward and yet
the wounded man lives. Ilis fight has been an
extraordinary one and those who are watching
the case will never cease to wonder at the
staying powers of a man whose wound was
necessarily mortal. Last night Adler slept
but little and as a conse qnence he was very
fretful all this morning. He was not easy for
one minute. First he would ask to have his
head moved, then he would want an arm or a
leg adjusted, or he would complain that his
left ear (on which he fell when shot)
hurt him. His numerous requests were
patiently complied with, but they yielded him
no satisfaction. Shortly before' noon he was
given a small quantity of morphine and soon
afterwards be fell asleep. His temperature
this morning was 106 6-10 degrees; hi* pnlse
was very weak at 116, and his respiration was
steady at 18.
A PBCtrUABITT or THE CASK.
One of the peculiarities of the ease is found
in the fact that while Adler's body is nothing
bat skin and bone hi* face is bat little changed.
"I keep up a little massage treatment still."
said Dr. Wagner to a Stab reporter to-day.
"The friction aids circulation and relieves the
patient. He has fallen away surprisingly; where
six weeks ago there was solid flesh I can now
pick np a handful of the loose skin."
Great care has to be exercised in attending
to the patient's cuticle. !t is remarkably ten
der and the attendants have to bathe Adler
quite fiequently iu solutions of alum, vinegar
and alcohol.
TU KAIL OV THE ADLEB HOt~*EHOLI>
has increased considerably during the past four
or five week* for a number of would-be hsslsrs
have proffered their views on the subject for the
alleged information of the physicians, aad the
enlightenment of the family generally. These
theories never have anything tangible ia them
bat they keep on coming in. Many of the
writers seem to be firmly convinced that
I course of the treatment they prescribe would
bring back health of the enfeebled body
and strength to the paralysed limbs of Adler.
The doctors have Been no reaaou to change
their minds as to the ultimate result Dr. Ag
ue* covered the whole matter by saying when
he examined Adler:
"He mav linger for a oouple of months ywt;
ke prohehlJ will suffer, but the end is death."
The electric fan aad the water-hod are both
doing their work well and yet the pattest is
restless and really dying. - ? " ? j
