DECLINE TO RECONSIDER.
Commissioners Require Showmen to
Pay Circus Rates for License.
The District Commissioners today de
clined to recnsider their action of yester
day revoking the license which had been
granted to the Norris & Rowe animal show,
which was to have exhibited today, tomor
row and Saturday, at 13tth and U streets
northwest. Th~e proprietors of the show
called at the District building this morn
ing and had a long talk with the Commnis
sioners, in which Mr. E. H. Thomas, the
assistant corporation counsel, particIpatcd.
The Commissioners held to the theory that
the show was a circus in character, taking
their advice from the advertisements which
have appeared in the papers and on the bill
boards. The property owners in the neigh
borhood .of 13th and U streets protested
vigorously to the Commissioners agairst
allowing the show to go on at that point
The law requires that a circus shall obtain
the consent of T5 per cent of' the adjoin~ng
property holders, and this could not be ob
tained in the locality mentioned.
A license was originally issued to the
agent of the show at the rate of $5 a day.
The license clerk issued the permit under
the provision of the old law, which pro
vided for the exhibition of animals, The
new law does not provide for any such
class of entertainment. Circuses are re
quired to pay $200 a day.
The Commissioners told Messrs. Norris &
Rowe that they would have to obtain a
circus license and secure new grounds if
they wished to show. The showmen said
the size of their aggregation would not
warrant the payment of such a large fee,
and so they decided not to show.
Meantime, this morning the show arrived
in town and the stable and feed tents were
pitched on the lot at 18th and U streets.
which has been leased for three days. The
Commissioners were deluged with com
munications by 'phone and messenger from
the residents in the vicinity, who claim that
the presence of the tents and animals Is
creating a nuisance. It was alleged that
something like 2,000 small boya gathered
on the scene shortly after the arrival of
the animals. The assistant corporation
counsel is to report to the Commissioners
this afternoon as to whether or not he
considers the tents and horses a nuisance.
If he does the Commissioners will have to
ask the sho'wmen to move elsewhere. Hav
ing intended to show in Washington for
three days the proprietors say th~ey would
like to remain in the city that long even
though they are not allowed to exhibit.
The situation has been somewhat em
barrassing to the Commissioners, but they
claim they have had no other recourse thtan
the action they have taken. The issuance
of the license, they say, was a mistake and
an unfortunate one.
