Opinion Expressed Regarding Deposits
With Magistrates to Cover Cost's
and District's Liability.
The Commissioners iiave received from
Controller Trace-well of the Treasury De^
partment an opinion on a communication
from the District board. In which they
transmitted a report and documents for
warded by District Auditor Garrison rela
tive to the accounts of the District justices
of the peace.
Auditor Garrison questioned, first, whether
all deposits made with justices of the
peace to cover cost are required to be paid
over to the collector of taxes, and the
excess of such deposit over fees and cost
earned required to be refunded to the
parties entitled thereto on an official audit
certified by the auditor of the District, pay
able from the appropriation for refunding
Second. Are Justices of the peace re
quired to account for fees received for
celebrating marriages prior to July 1, 1903,
and to deposit the same with the collector
of taxes?
In answering the queries Controller
Tracewell states: "Your questions, except
in so far as they relate to refundment! to
be made from the appropriation for "refund
ing taxes,' do not relate to payments to be
made by or under you. and I am without
jurisdiction to render a decision on any
question not Involving a payment to be
made by or under you."
Quotation From the Law.
Mr. Tracewell quotes section 8 of the act
of July 81, 1804, which provides that; "The
head of the proper department may apply
for the decision of the controller of the
treasury upon any question Involved In a
payment which a disbursing officer Is au
thorized to make or In the payment of any
liability which may arise in consequence of
any contemplated action by him. but not
upon questions In connection with liabili
ties arising by operation of law alone."
"Tour questions," continues Mr. Traoe
well, "will therefore be considered only in
so far as they relate to the use of the ap
propriation for 'refunding taxes.' Section
6 of the District code, act of March 3. 1001,
provides: 'Each of said justices of the peace
shall receive an annual salary of 13,000, and
the further sum of $250 for rent, stationery
and other expenses, to be paid monthly by
the District of Columbia; and he shall len
der monthly accounts to the auditor of the
District of Columbia of all moneys received
by him for fees, and shall pay over such
fees to the collector of said District and
take his receipt In duplicate therefor, and
file one of them with said auditor and re
tain the other In his office, and the money
so collected shall be disposed of by said col
lector as other moneys belonging to the said
District are.'
Honey Other Than Fees.
"This section has no reference to money
npt received for fees earned and due, and
while It is customary to advance money for
fees, the money so advanced cannot be said
to have been received by the Justice for fees
until such fees have been earned, and lie
simply holds it in trust for the use of the
party making the advance, and he is not
required or authorized to account to the
District for any sum in excess of the
amount of fees earned, but must account
for and return any deposit In excess of the
fees earned to the depositor.
"The Justice of the peace does not repre
sent the District in receipt of the money so
advanced, and the District therefore incurs
no liability on account of the said ad
vances, and cannot therefore be called upon
to refund any such sums as may be ad
vanced to said Justices for fees, but the de
positors must look to said justices and their
bondsmen for the return of all moneys ad
vanced to said justices in excess of fees
earned by them.
"The appropriation for 'refunding taxes'
is not, therefore, available for the repay
ment of moneys deposited on account of
fees. The other question raised by the au
ditor Is not discussed or decided."
Complaint Made Regarding Naphtha
Street Lamps in Brookland.
E. P. Ellis, secretary of the Brookland
Citizen's Association, has written to the
District Commissioners calling attention to
the poor quality of naphtha street lighting
under the contract for the current fiscal
year. Mr. Ellis says:
"There have been many complaints from
residents of Brookland relative to the
poor quality of light from the naptha street
lamps, since they were furnished with in
candescent mantles. When giving out their
full power, the lamps are vastly superior to
those equipped with the old style burner.
But, unfortunately, very few of them are
in good working order, and many of them
refuse altogether to burn. On the average,
at least one fourth of the lights are com
pletely extinguished, and about half of the
balance give less light than the old burner
"Whether the fault Is due to the mantle
itself, or to unskilful adjusting, which lat
ter I ruspect to be the real cause of the
trou^l'V, the result Is the same?we are not
getting the light that we need and which it
was the intention to give us when the lamps
were erected. We appreciate your efforts
to increase the power of the lamps, but
nevertheless, unless the lighting as it Is
at present can be improved upon, our asso
ciation would prefer to have the Incandes
cent mantles removed and the old-style
burner used."
The matter will be referred to the elec
trical and lighting department. This de
partment has been giving close scrutiny
to the naphtha lighting servloe of late.
The officials have even gone so far as to
take the Commissioners into the county
to see the conditions as they aotually
exist The lighting department was over
ruled in the matter of the award of the
contract by the Commissioners.
Defendants in Police Court Charged i
With Imbibing Too Freely.
The too frequent use of liquor In large
quantities was the principal cause assigned
for the appearance of a majority of the
unfortunates in Judge Bun?Vs branch of
the Police Court today.
Sandy Coates, a very tall colored mar,
attired in working clothes, was in the dock
because of his conduct on 7th street north
west last night.
"He insisted in stopping pedestrians on
the street and telling them his troubles," a
policeman reported to the court. '"He
stopped me, and when I told him he had
better go home he wanted to fight, bo I
Just locked him up."
"Do you want to say anything?" the
court asked Coates.
"Yes, sir."
"Well, what is it?"
"I don't know what to say," he declared.
The court had something to say, and it
was "Five dollars or fifteen days." Coates
stepped back.
Theodore Scribjier. who is no stranger
in police circles because of his fondness
for Intoxicants and the numerous times
which he has been locked up, paid his re
spects to Judge Bundy. Theodore the
court was told, was on the White Lot yes
terday afternoon with a "Jag" of generous
proportions, and it was with much difficul
ty that lie was able to navigate
"I'm guilty," Theodore admitted.
He was given the privilege of paying an
assessment of $5 or spending half a month
in the workhouse as the equivalent. Theo
dore will probably take the fifteen days as
he has numerous other times.
Hose Redmond, a colored resident of
Springman's court. South Washington
amused herself yesterday afternoon by
taking on board a large amount of fire
water. When night came she was la a
fighting mood and was wandering around
in the court looking for trouble. She found
it In the shape of Mounted Polloeman Ben
Williams, who sent her to the station
house, where she spent the night'
"Rose is a tough proposition." the offi
cer told the court after Rose had been ar
raigned on a charge of vagrancy. "She
won't work and is drunk nearly all the
"It ain't not so," Rose declared In an In
dignant manner.
Judge Bundy thought it was, however.

Theories Upset by the Langley-Manly
Special Dispatch to The Brenlng Star.
WIDEWATER, VS., September 17-?In de
termining the design for the propellers now
used on the Langley flying machine the In
ventor was guided by the conclusions reach
ed throughout a series of exhaustive ex
periments with various methods of aerial
propulsion. Although the operation of the
airship screws Is still experimental. In many
respects the scientists are now In a posi
tion to make exacjt calculations as to the
power furnished by the propellers at cer
tain revolutions, considering the machine
in actual flight. In relation to the velocity
and the horizontal resistance to be over
come. It is now sfnjj>ly a matter of math
ematical process with the scientists to de
termine the actual efficiency of the pro
pelling apparatus?that is to say, the ratio
of useful work done to the .power expended
by the motor. Of course, the constant aim
is to get the percentage of useful work as
close as possible to the unit representing
the power put out
As in the case of marine propellers, there
is bound to be a certain total loss of effi
ciency which is technically known as
"slip." This, it is figured, will be constant
ly reduced in percentage with the increase
of horizontal velocity. A reason for such a
conclusion Is that for Its economical use
the power expended on and obtained from a
propeller should be directed with each rev
olution of a blade against masses of sir
whioh were before undisturbed. The im
portance attaching to a momentary supply
of fresh material for the best work of the
screws can hardly be overestimated. Prof.
Langley has found that the best aerial pro
peller is, theoretically, one that glides
through the air very muoh as a screw does
in a solid bearing, where the friction Is re
duced to the minimum. The Ideal condi
tion, therefore, would be to obtain a reac
tion without setting the air In motion at all.
It is pointed out that a reaction from the
air depending upon its Inertia increases in
some undetermined ratio with the velocity
with which it is acted upon.
The distinction between the principle of a
propeller designed to Btrike against fresh
sections of air at each moment of advance
and one built to revolve in the same posi
tion is the essential difference between an
airship screw and a fan-blower or a wind
mill. In the latter case a number of blades
are used to advantage, but with the aerial
propeller two blades have been found to
give the best results. The most efficient
propeller is that which sets In motion tha
least air Instead of setting in motion th*
greatest amount, as In the case of a fan
blower. With this knowledge Prof. I^ang
ley has made his flying machine propellers
with only two bladea He has demon
strated that many blades following each
other rapidly strike against air whose in
ertia has already yielded to the blades just
in advance, the resistance being therefore
greatly lessened. But where there are only
two blades the resistance from inertia is
much greater. ,
In the Several experiments with the pro
pellers while the airship wits on the launch
ing car the best results could not possibly
be expected, because It was necessary to
work them as though they had been of the
stationary variety. Only in actual hori
zontal advance can the airship screws give
the satisfactory service. The frequent
trouble experienced was due largely to this
A strong southeast wind, almost reach
ing the severity of a gale, gave the party
plenty of work this morning to protect the
houseboat and Its attendant craft. Before
the regular time for the tug Key to start
from the harbor at Qu&ntlco the sea was
running so high that prospects for success
fully getting alongside the houseboat were
so remote that It was determined not to put
out until the wind subsided.
In the meantime the party of experts at
work on the ark had to postpone their
morning meal. There was no way of get
ting them to the hotel at Clifton Beach,
nor was Prof. Manly able to get from there
to the houseboat. Extra work was done
last night by the mechanics, which explains
why they were caught on board the house
boat this morning without breakfast. Final
ly, about 11 o'clock, the wind died down
slightly and the tug reached the mechanics,
who were then conveyed to the hotel. Dur
ing the storm the naphtha launch was blown
away from its anchorage near the house
boat. The anchor caught a mile or so up
the river, and the craft escaped serious
The other boats were Injured and the
houseboat fortunately held her anchorage.
The anemometer showed the wind blowing
about thirty miles an hour. The storm pre
cluded the possibility of an attempted
launching today.
Slick Young Kan Secures $100 Belong

Miss Maria V. Deeble, who conducts a
boarding house at 1140 Connecticut avenue
northwest, was visited by a boarding house
thief yesterday, and as a result is out $100
In cash. About 2 o'clock In the afternoon
a young man called at the house and ex
plained that he wanted to secure room and
board for the winter. He explained that he

v jj in Massachusetts, he being here In
" ashlngton to study medicine. He seleot
1 a room on the third floor, and said that
l.a would send his baggage to the house
this morning. He asked for and was given
a key to the front door. The young man
asked what time dinner would be ready,!
and on being told said that he would go
out and return later In the evening. Ha
had come to the house in a stylish convey*
ance, which he left at the door. He said
It was his property and that he owned a
number of others, and was anxloua to And a
good livery stable for his horses.
He was on time for supper, but ate very *
little, leaving the dining room In advance
of any of the other guests. The first time
he called the new boarder told Miss Deeble
that his name was Boyd, but he informed i
the maid that it was Culverson. As the
other lodgers came out of the dining room
Boyd cam? ''own from his room and left j
the house and drove away in :s rig, which.:
was waiting at the front door
After dinner was over Miss Deeble visited
her room on the third floor and found that
her writing desk had been broken open and
a roll of bills amounting to $100 was miss
ing from a pigeon hole.
The police- were notified. The man Is de?
scribed as being smooth-shaven, with a
peculiar mark, somewhat like a scar, on his
upper lip when he smiles. He wore eye
glasses and was attired in dark clothes.
