Material to Be tJsed in New
Union Station.
?iV Ji.
?? f
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
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
"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
"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
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

is an important one in considering the ca
pacity of the quarry to fill a large con
tract. 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
"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."
Decision Affecting the W. C. T. U.
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
This recommendation has been approved
by Commissioners Macfarland and Biddle.
