Capt. Harding's Inspection of the
Quarries in Vermont Has
That in View.
It developed at the District bulldins to
lay tliat Capt. Chester Harding's mission
to the quarries in Vermont is in the in er
ests of the new municipal building for the
District, as well as tn connection with the
construction of the new un on station here.
Captain Harding's d:ree ions from tbe
Commissioner* are to proceed to Bethel and
Barrie, Vt.. and such oiher points in that
state as he may deem necessary, for the
purpose of examining quarries in connec
tion with the construction of the new Dis
trict bu id ng and of the new union station.
It is also ordered that the expenses of the
trip. In mileage, are to be ch-.rged one
half to the appropriation for the new mu
nicipal building and one-half to the do
posits made by the Baltimore and Ohio and
Philadelphia. Baltimore and Wash ngton
Railroad Compan.es, on account of railroad
It has been understood heretofore that
Captain liardng was to be feat to Bethel,
Vt., as the official representative of th<*
District authorities, in order that he might
Inspect the granite quarry p imariiy in
connection w.th the construction of the
new un on station. In their cons deration
of the matter, however, the Commission
ers concluded that the tour of inspec.ion of
the assistant to the Engineer Commissioner
might conveniently serve the doub.e pur
j??se indicated, hence tie instructions to
that effect.
In addition to examining the quarry as to
the quantity and un fotm quality of the
granite therein. Captain Hard ng will ob
tain information as to the faeil.ties for
getting out the stone and transporting It to
this city. He will also endeavor to ascer
ta.n whether the Bethel quarry contains
snflirient granite for the construction of
the new munlcpal building. Other quarries
producing different kinds of granite and
marble in the state of Vermont will aiso
be insjK-ctcd, and Captain Harding wilt
make an extended report on the Jesuits of
his tr.p to the Commissioners trpon his re
turn to Washington.
Increase in Cost.
Bv act of Congress, approved early in
March. lHiC. the appropriation for the pur
chase of a site and the construction of the
new municipal building was increased from
Jl.fiOO.OOO to *2.000.(100. The cost of the site
and of the competition for designs amount
ed to about *557.000, and the amount now
available fur the construction of the build
ing for the use of the District government
is approximately Jl.-tKt.iKV'. The cost of en
gineering, Inspection.- etc.. will amount to
about t-KMIOO. it is stated, leaving about
$l,4oO,t*>o fur the erection of the buildintf
itself, less the architect's fee. 3 ;>er cent of
the cost of the building, wtiich it .s esti
mated will amount to about 142,000.
Commissioner Biddle estimates that the
co?t of the stone In the new District build
ing will approximate EViO.U'O. It is state!
that the Commissioners w. I Improbably ad
vertise for proposals fot the construction of
the new municipal building in about thirty
days, and the specifications will like'y ciil
for bids ob different grades of marble,
granite and limestone. Either granite or
marble seems to be the preferred s:one tor
use in the build ng.

Imported Typhoid.
To tne Kdttor of Tbe Kveulwt Star:
I notice the statement In the report of
the health officer in regard to the origin of
typhoid fever that 148 cases in the District
were contracted outside of the District. I
presume, as was stated last year, at the
various summer resorts. If that be so I
suggest that In all such cases pains should
be taken to ascertain where the disease
?was contracted and publish it. By doing
that two good results would follow In the
first place, citizens would be warned against
going to those places, and. in the second
place, the authorities of those places, in
defense of their own interests, would soon
lie driven to the adoption of sanitary Im
provements that would prevent the recur
rence of such cases, and thus make the
lives of their patrons more secure. No
doubt the proprietors of these places would
be ofTended at ttie announcement, but both
the public and private welfare demands it;
and when they are driven to the adoption
of sanitary improvements, resulting in a
healthful condition, and the fact be
came known, as it soon would be,
they would be greatly benefited by
an Increase of custom. as people
?would naturally go to those resorts
that are known to be free from such evils.
It would be perfectly easy for the physi
cians attending these cases to ascertain
where the patient had spent the summer,
arid they should then report the facts to
the health office. W. C. DODGE.
German Cruisers Coming.

sands of colored lights are visible on atl
sides. In fact a city by itself is presented !
as the people enter the hall, and bands, or
chestras. singers and warblers are heard |

refreshments can be had, ts specially at
tractive. added to which are the dancing
pavilion and numerous free shows on the
stage, including the old country exhibits,
Santa Claus. the mammoth Christmas tree
and myriads of other novelties.
One of the strong features that has been
engaged is Morris" volcano in awful erup
, tion, an electrical ntaterpicce of the mod
em times. The effects are marvelous, re
producing an feJeetric tropical storm and
showing the explosion of the mountain, the
burning of the city and shipping in the har
bor. Lust teut not least Is the "Midway."
where numerous refined shows can be seen
at nominal prices of admission?the doors of
"Alt Deutschland" open at 7 p.m. and close
at 12 p.m., thereby giving the public five
hours of solid amusement tor the nominal
admission fee of 10 cents.
