In the case of Brown against the Com mercial Fire Insurance Company, which has t?>on on trial in Circuit Court No. 1. before Chief Justice Bingham, for the last eight d.ys. the court yesterday directed the Jury to return a verdict in favor of the defend ant. The suit was brought by the plaintiff as trustee under a deed of trust to recover 1^.500 upon a policy of insurance, as dam ases to the stock of goods insured and covered by the deed of trust. From the evidence It appeared that in September, 1SUS. Parker and Walker, the owners of a shoe store, insured their stock, and within a month thercaftur gave a deed of trust to the plaintiff. A'.Kmt one month thereafter the stock was totally de.-troyed. and after tlie fire the policy was presented by Urowu to the company, which indorsed the policy, nuking the loss payable to him as trustee*. Subsequently th-i company refused to pay and suit was instituted. The company claimed that the policy was made null anil Void because the property had been incum red by a deed of trust without notice to In violation of the provisions of the policy; that the policy being under sesl. the plaintiff could not maintain the action in fifi own name; that the declaration flled treated the plaintiff as the insured under the policy, whereas the proof showed that he was not. but only the appointee or re ceiver of the fund. which gave h!m no cause of action to recover in his own name, ard ?Iso because ethers were interested in the recovery and were not parties plaintiff. On behalf of the plaintiff it was c >n t<*r.d*d that the company had waive J the l>rovlsions of the policy by agreeing to pay the loss to plaintiff; and such a* vemen; amounted to an assignment of the policy and enabled the plaintiff to maintain th? hctton. The cowrt In directing a verdict for the a^fendaat- bald tha policy to be ? oootract Urd?r aeal and not assignable, and that there van a variance between the declara tion and proofs. Messrs. Chapln Brown and J. P. Earnest were attorneys for the plaln tifT and Leon Tobriner appeared for tlia defendant. Ordered by Commissioners. The District Commissioners have issued orders as follows: That catch basin be con structed near the southwest corner of 7th and P streets northwest, at an estimated cost of $75. chargeabe to the current ap propriation for main and pipe sewers.

Detective Lacy has gone to Ithsca with a warrant fot the woman. LAW BEGABDINQ STBEET CABS. Commissioner Boss Discusses Matter of Overcrowding Vehicles. The District Commissioners have decided, as stated In The Star several days ago, to make an adverse report on the bills in Congress providing that street cars shall not be filled beyond their actual seating capacity. Commissioner Ross has agreed with the two other Commissioners concern ing the Inadvisabllity of the law at this time, but thinks eventually there should be such a law. as well as other statutes giving the Commissioners supervision of street railway matters. "The subject." says Commissioner Ross, "has assumed such proportions that it 1s difficult for the Commissioners, with their present force, to give It the careful consid eration which its importance demands. It seems to me that the time has arrived for the creation under the District government of a department of transportation, which should have entire charge of all matters relating to steam and street railways, and possibly to her dies, hack and ex press service. Perhaps the most speedy way of securing such a result would be by requesting the detail of another assistant to the Engineer Commissioner, as author ised by law. in order that one of tlis offi cers so detailed ceuld devote his exclusive attention to such a department. Such de tals have always resulted In the most effi cient superintendence. If for any reason that cannot be done, I would suggest the propriety of asking Congress for an appro priation sufficient to secure the services of an able and experienced superintendent at an adequate salary, who would give his entire time to the public side of this ques tion. wVfch power to enforce, under the di rection of the Commissioners, laws to be enacted In the interest ot the fare-payers and of the employes, dealing with the rail roads also on the basis of-equal and exact justice." FOB m SMOKE LAW & Board of Trade Committee Tajkes ]Jp Question. i * INTEREST MANIFESTED TO OBVIATE EVILS OF PRESENT REQUIREMENTS. Full Text of the Bill Under Discussion and Which Will Likely Be Asked of Congress. The alleged Injustice of the present anti smoke law In.the District of Columbia was taken up for discussion by the committee on mercantile interests of the Washington Board of Trade at a meeting held in the board rooms this aftefnoon.

The draft of a bill submitted to the com mittee by a committee of citizens who held a meeting a few days ago was gone over in Its entirety.

Sportsmen are interested in the case of George Deane, who was arrested yesterday by Policeman Collins and Deputy Game Warden Bailey, and a number of them were on hand at the Police Court this morning to hear the trial. Mr. Deane, who had been released on >42 collateral, appear ed for trial. The collateral had been taken because it was believed the law provided a penalty of $2 for each bird found in the defendant's possession. It Is now alleged, that $5 is the amount provided by law, and rather than forfeit this amount Mr. Deane preferred to stand trial. The prosecuting witnesses had twenty-three birds in court this morning to be used as evidence, nine teen skylarks and four robins. It is charg ed that he killed the birds on the marsh near the Benning race track. Assistant City Solicitor Pugh heard the statements of the witnesses, and continued the case until tomorrow morning. The game law provides that certain birds, Including rob ins, shall not be killed at an)' time save for scientific purposes, and then only upon permit issued by the superintendent of po lice. The killing of Insectivorous birds is prohibited, and It is under this provision of the law that the charge of killing skylarks was brought. For Excessive Speed. Bicycle Policeman C. L. Bode made two I arrests yesterday of the operators of horse less carriages on the charge of excessive speed. Paymaster Samuel L. Heap, U. S. N., was the first to be taken into custody and deposited $10 for his appearance at court Saturday morning. A short time later Policeman Bode overhauled the operator of another horseless carriage near th<3 corner of Vermont avenue and K street. He gave his name as Schuyler 8. Olds, and also left a deposit of $10 for his appearance. The collateral was forfeited by 3m nen-ap|?oar ance of Mr. Olds at the court this movalftg. Death of Sister Loyola. Sister M.
