Work of IrnvrovlBK Itniurjr Coadl tioas to the City?Geaerai and Personal Items. Evening Star Bureau. No. 701 King St.. Bell Telephone No. 10?. ALEXANDRIA. Va.. August 15, 1W1. The regular monthly meetiyg of the board of health was held last night In the office of the city treasurer. The secretary, Mr. James F. Peyton, was directed to request the mayor to have the police to be mors strict in requiring residents to keep grass out of their gutters. The report of Mr. M. T.

The repairs at the city gas works, to which the attention of council has been called by Mayor Simpson and Superintend ent Hantzmon, will probably be arranged for soon by the council committee on light. It is said that the work which is most urgent will be done in the near future, but that the most extensive changes will be left until next year. The committee on light is composed of Messrs.

The funeral service will take place Sunday afternoon Miss Charlotte Blackburn of this city is the guest of her cousin, Miss Emily Smith, In Berryville, Va. FILES A PROTEST. Mr. Simmon* Object* to Changes in Names of Streets. Mr. Leo Simmons presented a lengthy protest to the District Commissioners yes terday afternoon regarding the proposed plan to rename the streets of the suburbs. Mr. Simmons said he appeared In behalf of several clients, as well as himself, par ticular objection being made to a change In the name of Yale street. In his commu nication he says: "I understand you claim the right to make such changes by virtue of an act of Congress, passed March 2, 1893, com monly known as the 'highway act.' Cer tainly said aot is well named If your con tention is right, though I cannot see how that act can be so construed. My construc tion of that law is that it contemplated giving authority for a general condemna tion proceeding to lay out streets and adopt others, whereby In such proceeding (not summarily without notice or hearing to any one affected) It was intended that all persons should be heard before a court of competent Jurisdiction, and where dam ages were found by reason of any change or alteration just compensation could be allowed. And this construction, it seems to me, is the only one that can be rea sonably placed upon such law. for certain ly Congress did not intend to heap an out rage upon out citizens by providing such law. If so, a man would go to bed feeling that his house and abode was safely lo cated upon a certain street which was en tirely satisfactory to him and awake In the morning to find that he did not live on such a street, but on an entirely differ ent one, selected by some Individual. "And I want to further call your atten tion to the fact that the streets In Co lumbia Heights are not vested in the United 8tates or in the District of Colum bia, but such streets are in the abutting property owners. This land was subdivided before the act of 1888, and prior to that time a dedication for street purposes did not pass the fee to the city, but it re mained in the abutting owner and Is so to this day. Such being the case, every own er in said subdivision has an absolute right in the name of said street. "Therefore, any act attempting to give you the authority to change such name is absolutely void. Congress could not by its own act change the name of such streets without a proceeding, and certain ly it could not delegate such authority to you to do so. No doubt authority may be delegated to make police regulations, etc., when no vested rights are affected thereby, but whenever such delegation would tend to affect vested rights the act is unconsti tutional and void. "It seems to me to name streets that are supposed to stand for eternity after any man is absolutely wrong. Who Is Chan nlng? What did he do to deserve such perpetuation of his name? There are thou sands of men with such a name. What as surance have we that an individual by such name may not commit some atrocious crime and become famous for that? Who is Bryant? Is he the poet or the Insane man by that name that died at Good'Hope a year or so ago? Take the city directory and you'll find under the head of Bryant laborers, waiters, bellboys, butchers, ba kers and candlestick makers. Fifty yearn from now who will know for whom these streets were named? The names of the streets of Columbia Heights were chosen from well-known institutions that have stood, and are likely to stand for thou sands of years. No act by such can dis grace the name. Tour scheme, so far as adopting such name, is wrong, and I trust you will not fores us to the courts to protect our rights. And *1 believe when you look into this matter with ths sober second thought that It deserves you will agree with me, for 1 do not believe It Is your (Intention knowingly to wrong any StotdmSmtL TH?

AFFAIRS IN GEORGETOWN. Police Making; Lift of Dogrs?General and Personal. The annual dog census of Georgetown and the section west of Rock creek Is now In progress. It will be complet?d within a fortnight. It Is thought, and by that time every dog will either be licensed, at the rate of $2 per year, or else be sent to the pound or otherwise disposed of. The twen ty policemen In the seventh precinct avail able for street duty have been given cer tain territory each and they are expected to make a house-to-house canvass and as certain the location of every dog owned In the section canvassed. Counting the town and county surround ing, the mounted police being apportioned a eertaln area. It is calculated that the canine population this year will be be tween 1,800 and 2,000, out of which number perhaps two-thirds will secure the neces sary tags. While the census Is still incom plete, several arrests for keeping unli censed dogs have already been made, and before the census is entirely completed and the results verified a much larger number of cases may be made. Bicycle Policeman Purr yesterday after noon arrested Charles Mallory, colored aged twenty-eight, on a charge of cruelty to animals. Mallory was driving a double team wagon loaded with sand, and on Po tomac street it was discovered that one of the horses was evidently fagged out, being able to go but a short distance each time before stopping.
