Commissioners Receive Statement Cov ering Investigations of the Quarriss and Cost of Material. The new union station building will be constructed of Bethel white granite, the District Commissioners having reached that decision at about noon today, following "he submission of the report of Capt. Chester Harding on the results of his inspection of the quarries In Vermont as the official rep resentative of the District authorities. The action of the Commissioners as a whole was taken upon the recommendation of Col. John Biddle, Engineer Commissioner, who presents an Interesting report relative to the material to be used in the construc tion of the terminal structure proper. Col. Biddle in his report states that the cost of the station building If erected out of the Bethel granite will be but little, if any, less than if constructed out of white marble of the grade ordinarily used for building purposes. From investigation, he says, he Is of the opinion that the quarry will furnish a sufficient quantity of sttne of uniform quality within time to complete the building by the date specified in the act of Congress authorizing the construc tion of the railroad terminal in Washing ton. It is stated that the Commissioners have not as yet taken up the question of the selection of stone for the new municipal building, and there is no reference to tnis subject contained in the reports of either Col. Biddle or Capt. Harding. Col. Biddle's Report. The recommendation and report of Col. Biddle regarding the use of the Bethel granite in. the new union station Is as fol lows: "I move that the request of the railroad companies to use Bethel white granite, from the quarries at Bethel, Vt., for the new union station to be erected in this city be approved, the stone used to be equal to the sample submitted and kept on file in the office of the Engineer Commissioner. "The authority of the Commissioners to pass upon this question Is given in the act for the construction of the station, which states that all constructions by the rail roads due to change of grade incident to the abolition of grade crossings shall be approved by the Commissioners. The Com missioners have, therefore, the right to approve or disapprove, in their discretion, any sample of material that may be sub mitted, but they are not authorized to dic tate to the railroad companies what spe cific stone they shall us/;. The act requires that the station building shall cost not less than $4,000,000, and any action of the Com missioners that would force the railroad companies to a greater expense is not, jn my opinion, authorized. No Specification Made. "The act of Congress does not specify what material shall be used. In his report i to the Senate upon this,matter Senator Mc Millan, then chairman of the Senate oom i mittee on the District of Columbia, stated that the building would be constructed of white marble and would be monumental in character. While this was not Incorporated in the act, the authority for. the statement has never been questioned by the railroad companies, and if the understanding which evidently existed at that time were insisted upon at present as being desirable, m.irule could doubtless be required for use in the building. "The railroad company has submitted a sample of stone it desires to use in the building. It is a white granite, flecked with dark spots, and is of a very hand some texture. The cost of the building, if constructed of this stone, would probably be but little. If any, less than if con structed of the grade of marble ordinarily used for building purposes, such as the Public Library on Mount Vernon Square, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art. The architect of the building, Mr. D. H. Burn ham of Chicago, states that he desires this granite because in his opinion it is su perior for such purpose. -Samples of the stone were^submitted to the Washington Chapter of the American Institute of Archi tects and the Washington Architectural Club, which bodies are believed to be rep resentative of the architects of the city. The samples were also shown to the super vising architect of the treasury and to leading architects from New York and Philadelphia. It is the unanimous opinion that the material is pre-eminently fit for such a building as the proposed union sta tion. Ample Supply of Stone. "I have also investigated the question as to whether tho quarry will furnish a suf ficient quantity of stone of the same tex ture as the sample submitted within time to complete the building by the date ' r.&med in the act. I have obtained from Mr. Cassatt, president of the Pennsylvania I Railroad Company, a report by engineers whom he sent to examine the quarry. A j rerort has also been made on the subject ! by Capt. Chester Harding, Corps of Engi neers, U. 8. A., assistant to the Engineer j Commissioner, and supervisor of construc tion of the new District building, who has just returned from a visit to the quarry. These reports agree that there is a suf ficient amount of stone In the quarry for the purpose, but that the facilities for taking it out in large quantities are yet lacking. The stone covers such a space that there should be no difficulty In open ing up sufficient quarries to take out the required amount within the time limit; it seems to be simply a question of energy in pushing the work forward. "The contracts with the railroad com panies require that the stone shall be de livered by the first of July, 1D0S. It Is be lieved that it is possible to do this, but even if there should be a delay of six irenths in getting out the stone, the build ing could still be ccmpleted within the time set by the act of Congress, namely, five years from the date of the passage of the act. which was passed February 28, 1003. "1 have had an examination made of the Ban.pie. with such facilities as we have in this office, and find It of good quality. Capt. Harding reports that the indications at the quarrv show good weathering." Capt. Harding's Investigation. Capt. Harding, in his report to the Com missioners, states that the Bethel quarrlee are situated on a hillside about three and one-half miles northeast of J^ethel, Vt., on the main line of the Central Vermont rail road. The site of the quarry, he states, is estimated to be at an elevation of about 500 or 000 feet above the grade u[ the railroad. At the time of his visit ttie ground was cov ered with several inches of snow, and it was impracticable to verify by inspection the statements that the granite outcrops over the entire area of the deposit; but he states that he did see the stone outcropping at numerous points along the hillside for a distance of about half A mile. In his opin ion, with but very little stripping, stone uniform with the sample submitted by the contractor can be quarried at all points throughout that distance. While the quarry is at present only slight ly developed, says Capt. Harding, and the operations now are on a small scale, It is apparently only a question of sufficiently multiplying tho number of derricks in order to obtain any desired rapidity of output from the quarry. The stone, he states, oc curs in the form of sliee'fb, separated by natural planes of cleavage inclining but lit tle from the horizontal. Where the quarry has been developed' most fully one of these sheets showed a thickness of about eight feet. The location of the deposit along a hillside and the fact that the sheets are nearly horizontal, in Capt. Harding's opin ion, are favorable to the rapid development and operation of the quarry. Matter of Transportation. Capt, Harding states that the question of facilitating the transportation of the stone TWELVE MORE SHOPPING DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS. I AINTY. RESSED OLLIES. Worth $1.25.

At present the stone must be hauled by team to Bethel for shipment. He said, however, that he is informed negotiations are in progress for the construction of a railroad connecting the quarry with the tracks of the Vermont Central line at Beth el. He understands that the construction of this road is dependent upon the Ellis quarry securing the contract for furnish ing the stone for the Washington union station; "It is my understanding," says Capt. Harding, "that the contract calls for the delivery of 440,000 cubic feet of dimension stone by July 1, 1906. Allowing six months' time for providing the necessary equipment and developing the quarry on a large scale, and for constructing the railroad to the quarry, the average delivery would have to be about 1,000 cubic feet per day. or say, 80,000 cubic feet per month. This is deemed to be a very large output and is more than twice the monthly average during the past year of a large, well developed quarry in active operation at Barre. In view, how ever, of the favorable situation of the Bethel quarry and of the possibility of op erating a large number of derricks without Inteference with each other, and in spite of the present undeveloped condition of the quarry, I can see no physical impossibility in the way of filling the contract in the time specified." He states that he learned from Independ ent sources at Barre, Vt., that with proper equipment of machinery and a full comple ment of quarrymen one derrick should, un der favorable conditions, get out 6,000 cu bic feet of atone a month. The Principal Deposit*. Capt. Harding also reports on his exam ination of the quarries near Barre, Vt. The principal deposit of granite thus far As veloped near Barre, he states, occurs In Millstone hill, three miles south of the city. The quarries on the east slope of the hill furnish the light granite, and the dark granite is confined to the west slope. The white stone is found in sheets, while the dark granite is in large Irregular masses, but with well-defined planes of cleavage. 1 The size of monoliths which any of these quarries can supply, he says, is limited only by the possibilities of transportation. In closing his report he says: "My impressions of all the Barre quarries were distinctly favorable, and when the conditions do not demand a white stone, the granite Is In* every respect excellent for building purposes." EXEMPTED FROM TAXATION. Decision Affecting the W. C. T. U. Headquarters. The Commissioners have decided that the Women's Christian Temperance Union Hall et 522 Oth street northwest shall hereafter be exempt from taxation, on the grounds that the property Is used for charitable, re ligious and educational purposes, and an order to that effect will shortly be entered on tax books of the District. This action is taken by the District authorities upon the application of the union, which was presented several days ago by Clayton E. Em Is and a committee of ladies repre senting the organisation." In an indorse ment on the application Commissioner West ?ays: ? "Referring ta the application of the Wo man's Christian Temperance Union for ex emption from taxation of the real property owned by that organisation, on the ground that said organisation Is charitable, eauca tional and religious, and thus within the scope of the law authorizing exemptions, I desire to state that an examination of the assessor's records shows that the Commis sioners have at various times In the pant exempted from taxatlon^he property owned by the Association for Works of Mercv, the Florence Crittenton Hope and Help Mis sion, the Central Union Mission, the Young Women's Christian Home and the Women's Christian Association, on grounds identical with those presented by the Woman's Christian Temperance Union. "While I am personally opposed to exer cising wide latitude in the exemption of property from taxation, it is very evident that the precedents of the Commissioner# favor the present appeal of the Woman'i Christian Temperance Union, and to deny the appeal would be to discriminate unfair ly against this organization. The five cases of exemption already noted have been con sidered as being fully within the law; so there can be no question as to construing the statute in favor of the Woman's Chris tian Temperance Union. "After a conference with the District assessor upon the matter, I move that an order exempting the real property of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union ffom taxation, so long as said property be used for charitable, religious and educa tional purposes, be entered upon the tax books." This recommendation has been approved by Commissioners Macfarland and Biddle. Ultra Sensitive. From the Cleveland Plain Des'.er. "Didn't somebody faint In the lecture room last night?" "Yes.
