With regard to the item of MO for the grading, regulating and inprove ment of Chesapeake street along the south ern boundary of Reno subdivision, fror Wisconsin avenue to Grant road, the Com missioners say the street is now known a: "South" street, though It is In the line 0 Chesapeake street, and its nomenclatur in the amendment should be "Chesapeak or South street." On account of the steal grade between Belt road and Wisconsli avenue, the Commissioners believe that n, present improvement should extend beyon Belt road, and the amendment, if passed should read, "For grading, regulating an4 macadamizing. Chesapeake or South stree ..along the southern boundary of Reno sub division, from Belt road to Grant road. The estimated cost of the work is 7,il) instead of 5,000, as the bill provides. Th, land to the south of the existing stree line has been dedicated, but not all of thP_ to the north. The improvement of thii street -Is desirable, but in the opinion 0: the Commissioners it should not be improv ed ahead of the streets which the Commis sloners have included in their estimate to Congress. Twentieth Street Grading. The Commissioners report with refer-nc4 to the amendment intended to be proposei by Mr. Teller, to grade and macadamizi 20th street from Queen's Chapel road t( Brentwood road, $8,000, that this item was Included in their estimates, and they knom of no reason to change their opinion as t< its importance, but invite attention to tho fact that it has been included as a Senat4 amendment to that bill. The Commissioners recommend favorabl4 4ction on Senate bill 7211, "To provide foi the inspection of the records of the healtt office of the Digrict of Columbia,". and transmit. a copy of a report of the healti officer of the District on the subject. Needs of Wisconsin Avenue. The Commissioners have forwarded ts Chairman McCleary of the House subcom mittee on appropriations a communicatior received by them from Mr. J. Nota. McGil respecting the urgency for the improvemeni of Wisconsin avenue, and add that the chiei engineer of the fire department reports thal a portion of the fire apparatus in respond Ing to an alarm in that vicinity on the 10tl instant was unab!e to pull the steam fir engine up the hill on Wisconsin avenue un -til a horse was sent back -from the hos carriage; that the steep grade at that poin1 renders it impossible for the apparatus 01 the fire department to ascend the hill at E much faster gait than a walk, and that th4 efficiency of the department would b greatly increased if this very trying grad( should be removed, as proposed. FOR WRIT OF HAERAS CORPUE. Petition for Release of Thos. ,. Laml From Hospital for Insane. A petit-ion for writ of habeas corpus, the objcet being to secure the release of Thos. J. Lamb, formerly a Senate doorkeeper, was filed late this afternoon. Mr. Lamli several weeks ago was adjudged by Justice Barnard to be of unsound mind, and was .committed to the Government Hospital for the Insane. The petitioner avers that his commitment was unlawful, for the reason that he was not granted a trial by jury. Mr. Lamb sets forth that he is not now and never was a lunatic of homicidal or otherwise dangerous tendencies. He addE that if he had been legally tried he would not have been committed to the asylum; that he is able to support himself'and fam Ily; that until January 1 -last he was eM 'ployed as a doorkeeper in the United States Capitol, for which he receited $1,44C per annum, and that he'has an additional income of $75 a month. This action, it is explained, will consti tute a test of the law under which lunacy proceedings are at present conducted In the District of Columbia. The law, it Is con tended, is unconstitutional, for the reason that it does not give the alleged lunaticm the right to trial by jury, the question ol liberty being Involved. Attorneys Balderston and Smith repre sent Mr. Lamb. Justice Clabaugh directed that the writ issue, returnable Friday, February 27. DISCUSS EX-SLAVE BILL. Colored Citizens Adopt Resolutions - Favoring Its Passage. A mass meeting of colored citizens of both sexes was held last evening In Samaritan Hall, en I street between 2d and 3d streets southwest, under the auspices of the Na tional Ex-Slaves' Mutual ICelief, Bounty and Pension Association, when action wasn taken on the ex-slave bill, -recently intro duced in Congress, by request, by Senator Hanna. The bill provides for ameliorating the condition of the great number of ex slaves. It was stated that bills looking to this end have been introduced In the na tional body seven different times. A large number of aged persons was pres ent at the meeting last evening, and the provisions of the proposed legislation were explained in full. Two sets of resolutions were offered to the gathering for approval, one by R. E. Gilchrist, on behalf of the or ganization having the meeting in hand, and the other by S. P. Mitchell, president of the National Industrial Council, another cal ared organization, which has in view t-he same objects as the former body. Wordy discussion arose over the prescnta tion of the resolutions, but both sets were finally adopted. I. H. -Dickerson, superintendent and pro moter of the National Ex-Slaves' Mutual Relief, Bounty and Pension Association told of the work that has been done by his or ganization to further the movement. In speaking of the proposed legislation he said: "This bill is right and just. If the government don't pay us a cent, it will al ways owe us. The ex-slave bill is not a fraud." R. E. Gilohrist of the same association referred to the bill introduced in the- fol lowing language: "The government owes ex-slaves money, some time they will get it." Among others who spoke were Mr. Peter W.-Frisby, at.torney for the N. I. Council, and Mr. RB. A. L. Dick, attorney for the other organiisation. E|ngine lumps Track. .

"I see by The Star that the people of the District are .rtill having trouble with the 'dense black smoke' problem and are mak ing an effort to have the law on the subject chariged by Congress," said Robert S. Gira ham of Richmond, Va., to a Star man at the New Willard this morning. "Down in Petersburg, which is but a short distance from Richmond, they are experimenting with a smokeless chimney, which appears to be a great success in preventing the dark smoke and soot from coming out of the chimney. According to the claims of the inventor, it will work on any chimney six or more feet in height. The stack is equipped with collars and drip plates running off the edges at vari ous intervals for about half the height of the stack. Water is forced about half-way up the stack by the use of inspirators on small boilers and by donkey pumps on large boilers, the water being regulated by the size of the stack. The collars and drip plates start from the bottom of the stack ahd water flows on the drip plates.,-unning over the edges of the .collars, which drop about one-half inch to the center, tnen passes th~ropg3i the smoke.box into a fun nel at the bottom- of'the smoke box. 'The water is carried off into a tank -and can be used again. Th.e continual flow of water on'thte drin plates prevents rusting. Now, the smoke in attempting' to get thiough the continua flow of water tilrns tosot which fails to the biottoin'of the stackad is carried- off byr the water which has drop ped to the bottomn. The water, of course, prevents the escape of-any sparks. The in ventor claims .that a. person can hold his face over the top of a stach which" [cadis from a r.ed-hot furnace-and will not- be in the lease . inconvenienced either by soot, amoke or spark.s. It' is elstied that this smokeless stack will admit of .the con tinuous use of soft coal instead' ot hard, thereby saving many dollars in the cost of fuel- and again in saving the surround lng buildings from being discolore.d from the dense' black-smoke that,usually comes from the use of bituminous.col." *arlersr eaia i -hirWork.

"Under a system now being proposed be fore the legislature of Minnesota the varie ties of wild game in our section will be in creased instead of steadily dimInishing, as is pow the case," said J. 3. Mangham of Duluth to a Star man at the Arlington. "The state game and fish cownmission has taken the-matter In hand, and caused to be introduced in the legislature a bill that will doubtless pass, requiring every person, whether he be resident or non-resident, to have a license to .shoot, and this,.license is to be granted only under certain conditions and to cover certain. contingencies. The bill also requires a 'guni license of a nominal fee for residents, but an excessive one for peo ple living outside the state desiring to hunt withra lts b,orders; and the license Is to- be Issued only for a short period. All fines for violatlens of the laws are to go Into the county treasury for the sustenance of such persons as are arrested for violating the game law and do not pay their fines and are imprisoned In consequence." - aple Bugar in Virginia. "It is not generally known perhaps, but a large quantity of maple sugar is made In Virginia; each. year, and the sugar mak ers are now bus1y engaged in making the 'sweetening,' * said Henry''C. Graves of Monterey,. V-a., to a Star man at the Met ropolitan. "Ordinarily the seauon does not open until, Marvclh,but the premature thaw has caie .the farmers to get a move on themselves.

A novel idea in lighting trains by e:ee tricity is the "Gulloft' system, whk-h has been experimented with successful!ly on a small scale on an important road and Is now to be applied to an express train. As in the case of the "axle light," the motion of the train is used to generate the ele.c tricity. Instead, however, of taking this power from the car axle, it is furnished by a rotary fan attached to the front end of the locomotive, The fan Is located close to the boi'er head and presents a moving and cutting surface to the air pressure, causing the air to travel to the outer end of -the fan's b'ades until discharged. No air pressure is maess ed on the flat surface of the boiler head, but the curved surfaces of the fan utilize the traveling air and thereby generate power. The fan cuttin through the. air. revolves~ swiftly ahd d4not add to the resistance of the air nor.retard the speed of -the train. No gale. of wind is required to cause the fan to operte; the ordMnary pressure of the train maoves it su3c tly to generate the eleetuicai- energy--reqiiled to light any. train and leave a jarge surgius for ventilating fan. -and other. purposes. The apparatus so located does not obstruitt the -view of the:engineer nor over .any. ob jectionable complications. The dynamo .a located either on or under the pilot- and.is directeonnected to the.fan by a special destee. A storage, battery -Is located .on the tender- or -underneath each car, and so equipped automatically with cut-oats as to properly govern the flew of current from dynamo to battery. It.Is evi dent that the cost of illuniination, will. be only the- axpense of iuntatng and main taining this apparatua.
