she had taken the revolver away from her
husband, fearing that he might shoot her.
Her explanation was satisfactory and she
was released on her personal bonds.

THE DESIGN ACCEPTED

B. Stanley Simmons of This City the
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
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
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

The Knights of Iiabor Decision. '<
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. JNO. W. HAYES,
