THE DESIGN ACCEPTED Important Step Towards Se curing High School Building FOR BUSINESS BRANCH ASSURANCE THAT COST WILL NOT EXCEED APPROPRIATION. B. Stanley Simmons of This City the Successful Architect?Out line of Plans. The District Commissioners today ac cepted the design submitted by Architect B. Stanley Simmons of this city for tlie new Business High School, which is to oc cupy, with its surrounding parking, all of the square bounded by Sth and 9th.streets, Rhode Island avenue and R street north- i west. The site of the new school is in the immediate vicinity of the McKinley Manual Training School, located at 7th street and Rhode Island avenue, and is near the center of population as fixed by the last United States census. From a series of seven sets of plans sub- | mitted in competition by local architects | the Jury of award, consisting of the Com missioners and an architectural adviser, se lected three designs, the order of excel lence, as fixed by the Judges, being B. Stanley Simmons, first; Julius Wenig, sec ond, and Frank H. Jackson, third. It was the opinion of the architectural adviser that none of the plans could be car ried out with the $168,000 available for the construction of the building. The Commis sioners, instead of rejecting all plans, how ever. invited tlie three leading architects in the competition to submit estimate showing the figures upon which they had based their calculations to bring their respective build ings within the available appropriation. Mr. Simmons, who was of course given preference, has convinced the Commission ers that his design can be carried out safe ly within the appropriation. He has for warded an agreement with a local firm of contractors who have erected many of the finest school buildings of the city, in which thev bind themselves to construct the Busi ness High School in strict accordance with j Mr. Simmons' design and specifications ap- i proved by the Commissioners for the sum | of $104,800. Colonel Biddle, the Engineer j Commissioner, raised a question as to style I of brick offered by the contractor and Mr. Simmons, but the contractor and architect have stipulated to furnish the grade of brick desired by the Commissioners, and this has been written into the agreement. Will Call for Bids. The Commissioners will, of course, adver tise for bids, to see If a lower figure than that estimated by the contractors in ques | tlon can be secured. If no lower bids are received the contractors submitting the es timate of $04,800 will be called upon to erect the building. Col. Blddle's recommendation in the mat ter, which has been approved by Commis sioner West, and represents complete action by the District board. Is as follows: "I move that in accordance with the pro gram of competition for the Business High School Mr. E. Stanley Simmons be paid $000 as the first prize and that he be direct ed to prepare all necessary detail drawings for letting the contract. Mr. Simmons has proven to my satisfaction, by submitting estimates of builders who have erected a number of school buildings for the District of Columbia, that the building designed by him can be constructed for the amount available. If the contract is let within the limit of cost I move that he be paid the remaining $1,000 provided by the program of competition and that he be appointed to supervise the erection of the building in accordance with the terms of the program. "I further move that Mr. Jules Wenig, who was given second place by the consult ing architect, be notltied that in the opinion of the Commissioners the building designed by him cannot be constructed for the sum stated and-that unless he has further fig ures to submit the award cannot be made him under terms of the program." Rate of Compensation. For his supervision of the structure Mr. Simmons will receive compensation at the rate of $7 a day during construction, but not to exceed in any event 500 days of service. Mr. Julius Wenig will receive $400 as second prize, and Mr. Frank H. Jack son $300 as third prize. The new building will have Its principal entrance from Rhode Island avenue. There will also be entrances from 8th and 9th streets. A court will open on R street. Mr. Simmons stated today ihat he expected to have .the detailed drawings ready by October 1, and said there was no reason why a contract should not be entered into and work begun within six weeks' time. The style of architecture employed in the design of the new structure is a type of the English renaissance. A three-story build ing was deemed advisable for the reasons that it gives an elevation needed in this class of structure, costs less to build, pro portionately, than a two-story building, and is more economically heated and ventilated. The location of the building in the square will be on the building line of Rhode Island avenue, where the width of the parking is twenty-five feet. The structure will recede from the building lines of 8th and 9th streets, so as to give a uniform parking width, the same as the Rhode Island front. The class rooms have been arranged lengthwise along the front walls, that more direct light may be had to a greater, num ber of pupils. The gymnasium and tempo rary drill hall Is entered from the first floor, with dressing rooms and shower baths at either side, immediately below cloak rooms, the assembly hall being on the second floor! with provisions made for a future drill hali above It. Material for the Walls. The outside walls will be built of hard burned selected red bricks, according to the modified specifications approved by the En gineer Commissioner and agreed to by the architect and contractor. Gray brick and limestone will be used In the trimmings. The interior of the building is to be fin ished throughout In the best quality of short-leaf Virginia or North Carolina yel low pine.

'< To the EViltor of The Evenlne Star: X beg leave to correct an error in your report of the action of Justice Pritchard in the Knights of Labor case yesterday. Your report states as follows: "Justice Pritchard took the view that the , defendants should be restrained from han- \ dling the property pending the hearing of J the case on its merits, which will occur at the October term of court. Burns and his associates maintain that Hayes and his fel- ' low officers bolted the regular convention, held sessions without giving due notice to i the other delegates, and elected Hayes as grand master workman. Hayes, who had been the general secretary of the associa tion, turned over the books and funds to t-he new general secretary. Chamberlain, and in this way. it is alleged, the 'illegal' officers retained possession of the property of the association." Justice Pritchard's action was just the re verse of that reported by you. The suit in which his order was made was instituted by Burns and others last June against my self and five others, claiming to be lawfully elected and installed officers of the order of the Knights of Labor. Upon the fllii.g of the bill and the affidavits of certain of the complainants a temporary injunction was granted in the usual course, without any opportunity to the defendants to f-e heard. The defendants filed their answer, with ac companying affidavits and exhibits, and the case came on for hearing before Justice Pritchard. who. after a full hearing and argument by counsel, dissolved the tem porary injunction, thereby in effect holding that the defendants, Including myself, are the regularly and lawfully chosen and con stituted officers of the order, whose busi ness we are now, as such officers, adminls tering.
