Total of G5.H12 Feet of Mninn Laid Capacity of IlrlKhtwood Rmerrulr ?Kxtiniatvn Submitted. The annual report of W. A. McFarland. the superintendent of the water depart ment, has been received by the District Commissioners. The total length of new mains laid, of all sizes, was 65.812 feet, or about 12'4 miles. The most important con struction work of the ytar was the com pletion of the north ba.sin of the Bright wood reservoir, which was put in serv.ee in December, 1HOO, and has been continual ly in use since that time. The capacity of this reservoir is now 34,000,c00 gallons, of which SO.tKiO.OOO are available for use. The basins are so designed that the final drain ing cannot occur through the mains to the city. , A contract has been entered into for the construction of two reservoir gate houses of granite, and the work of grading and road construction about the reservoir is nearly completed. Direct-Service Pmnplnj? Station. During the early part of the year a small direct-service pumping station was estab lished in Anacostia. For equipping this station boilers and pump were removed from the old Q street station in George town. which has not been In service for a number of years past. This new station, with a maximum capacity of l,;i00,000 gal loirs per day, was put in operation thirty five days after beginning work of excava tion for foundations; it has been in con tlnuous use since installation, and is de livering water at a height of ai>out ISO feet above level. When supplied by grav ity the water in this part of the District reached a hedght of only about 120 feet above tide. Middle and Hlpth Service Area*. An increase of O.'M per cent of water pumped In the middle and high services Is noted over last year. The mean number of gallons of water pumped per day was: Mid dle service, 7.228,501; high service, 263,147; total. 7,491.709. The report shows the total cost of pump ing 1.000 gallons under actual conditions (including interest and depreciation) to be 1.004 cents, and the corresponding cost per 1,000 gallons per year ending June 30, 1900, 1.003 cents. During the past year the principal work contemplated by this department, other than ordinary routine construction, main tenance and repair, is as follows: Building of gate houses and completion of roads, grading and fencing at Brightwood reser voir; excavation for foundation of Trum bull street pumping station; execution of contract for building and for a large part of the mechanical equipment and com mencement of work of construction; laying of 48-inch suction mains to connect new station with Howard University reservoir and alteration of mains on Capitol Hill in anticipation of an extension of the high service system to this locality. The Estimates. Superintendent McFarland submits esti mates for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1903, which include $21,380 for salaries, $90, 000 for pumping expenses and pipe distribu tion, $5,000 for purchase and repair of pumps and care of wells and for continu ing the extension of the high service system of water distribution, etc., bo much as may be available. Revenue and Inspection. George F. Green, the water registrar, has submitted to the District Commissioners a report of the operations of the revenue and inspection branch of the water department for the fiscal year ending June 80 last. The Inspection work Is summed up as follows: Inspections made, 111,299; premises in which leaks were found, 9.747; water rent bills delivered by inspectors, 83,758; water main assessment notices served, 1,222; tax certificates examined. 6,021; taps Issued, 1,398; stop-cocks Issued, 1,381; permits ex amined. 2.558. Mr. Green states that during the fiscal year Just closed a remeasurement and re examination of all the houses in the Dis trict of Columbia, supplied with Potomac water, was commenced and has been push ed steadily forward, so that, at the present time the re-rating is about two-thirds com pleted. and he declares it is safe to esti mate that the expense of this labor will be many times repaid by the large Increase in revenue from premises heretofore under rated. "In November last." he adds, "the water main tax branch of the department was transferred to the office of the assessor and with it one of the clerks of the office, re ducing the number to three, who are, even when business is at fts lightest, unable to cope with the ever-increasing volume, thus necessitating the detail of Inspectors to clerical work and reducing another force already far too small to cover a rapidly growing territory." For this reason the registrar again invites attention to the request in his last annual estimates, and those of this year, for an increase of two in the clerical and a like number In the Inspection branch of the bureau. Receipts From Rents. Five tables, covering the revenue branch of the work, are submitted with the report. The amount received from scheduled water rents was $248,518.38, while from meter rents the revenue was $55,038.81, making a total of $303,557.19. The water main tax total, with the 6 per cent abatement de ducted, was $56,359.72. The total collections of the water department from all sources amounted to $369,122.15. The total expendi tures were $291,687.06. The water fund now amounts to $386,122.07. Voice of Organlied Labor. At a recent meeting of the Journeymen Tailors' Union of this city resolutions of fered by James McDermott were adopted', deploring the treacherous assassination of President McKinley and stating that "on the theory that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure," Congress is peti tioned to so legislate that a similar calamity may be rendered Impossible. The union de clared also that "organized labor is the greatest sufferer" from the assassin's act and that no union of workingmen should tolerate anarchists within its ranks. The resolutions were signed by John McConvllle, president of the union, and William Terry, secretary. In Memory of Mrs. Graves. A memorial service was held at Salvation Army Hall last evening in honor of the memory of Mrs. Linda I. Graves, wife of Mr. B. B. F. Graves of this city, who died on the 17th Instant. The chair which had been occupied by the departed one was ap propriately draped and covered with beau tiful flower pieces, while beautiful songs were sung and touching remarks made by those who had known and loved her for years, among these being Mr. H. B. F. Macfarland, president of the board of Dis trict Commissioners, who spoke of her beautiful Christian character and patient fortitude. Two Robberies Reported. The police were informed today that two robberies were committed at 707 12th street northwest between midnight and 6:30 o'clock this morning.

A constant incoming stream of new workmen is claimed by the master paper hangers of this city, and, it is said, they are being put to work daily by the differ ent houses where the strikers have with drawn their men. This morning one of the proprietors stated that he had received six new men, coming from as many different points of the compass. Men came from as far as the Mississippi river, he said; others from the New England states and Canada, and still others from the sunny south. But the strikers are not dismayed by this showing, as they claim to have made an impression on the men employed by the different bosses as recently as Saturday night It was stated by one of the offi cials of the striking men that the union was given assurances by a number of these tollers that, coming to this city without funds to last them any time, they would work for a week, but at the end of that time would leave. This action would be taken, so they said, because they were not aware of any trouble existing here before their arrival. It was also stated that one of the sub contractors, who has on hand a large amount of work, received from the stores of the Masters' Association, had communi cated with the union, saying that he would not do the work and that he would st^nd by the union.

MAKES ANNUAL ESTIMATES INSPECTOR OF Bl'lLDHGS SIBMITS STATEMENT TO COMMISSIONERS. InrreaKP in Salary of A**l*tnn<*, Also of Two Clerks and a Messenger. John B. Brady, the inspector of buikling^ has submitted to the District Commission er? estimates for the support of his office during the fiscal year ending June .50, 1003. He includes in the items the following: "Inspector of buildings, $2,750; principal assistant inspector of- build'-ngs. $2,000; seven assistant inspectors of buildings, one of whom is designated as inspector of fire escapes, at $1,2<M> each. $8,400; one civil en gineer or computer. $1,500; two clerks. $1,200 each, 12,400; messenger and clerk, $f>0O; con tingent expenses, books, blanks, stationery, care of horse and repairs to carriage, $075; total, $18,325. "The above estimates,'* says Mr. Brady, "provide for an increase of $4?K> In the salary of the principal assistant, an in crease of $200 per annum in the salary ox each of four assistants now receiving $1,000 tfach, an increase of $300 to the salary of each of the two clerks, also an increase or $120 in the salary of the messenger, who. in addition to his regular duties, renders much valuable service of a clerical nature. Reason* Given. "I recommend the above increases in sal aries because of the fact that there is no corps of employes of the District go\ em inent who render more service to the Dis trict of Columbia, and the nature of their work is such as to impose great respon sibilities upon them, and in order to keep a close supervision of the field of construc tion their hours of labor are not limited by the number of hours in an official day. Therefore, appreciating the great amount of service each renders to the District. I deem it my duty to apprise you of this fact and recommend for your favorable considera tion the increase in the salaries of each, as noted above. "We have just passed through a year in which the building operations have been extensive, and as the amount of work ren dered by the gentlemen connected with the inside office work has been very heavy, yet they have cheerfully rendered after office hours each day the labor necessary to keep up the records of the office, and this volun tary assistance to the District has been the means of reducing the arrearages of the work to a minimum. Building; Area Covered. "When it is considered that the building area of the District is sixty-two square miles, and as I have only six assistants to cover this field of construction (one assist ant being assigned to elevators, fire escapes and heating plants) it requires no argu ment to convince that the territory' covered by each, namely. 10.33 square miles, is more than can be effectually controlled by one man, therefore to properly administer the duties of the building department and secure construction generally, the Integrity of which should be beyond adverse criti cism, I respectfully ask for the assistance the building department requires for the effective execution of the regulations as promulgated by the honorable Commission ers, and as a means of accomplishing this end I respectfully ask that the force of this office be Increased by the following ad ditional employes: "Two assistant Inspectors of buildings, $1,000 each, $2,000; one assistant inspector of elevators, fire escapes and heating plants, $1,000; one clerk, who shall be a typewriter and stenographer, $900."
