BILL PROVIDING FOR SUPERIN
TENDENT OF FIRE DEPARTMENT.
Commissioners Make Argument in Sup
port of Measure?Result
of Experience.
Upon the recommendation of Commission
er Macfarland the District authorities today
forwarded to the chairmen of the Senate
and House committees on the District of
Columbia the draft of a bill providing for
a superintendent of the Are department of
the District, with the request that it be
introduced and favorably acted upon during
the present session.
In his letter accompanying the bill Mr.
Macfarland states that the experience of
the Commissioners satisfies them that the
head of the fire department should be an
executive officer only, and that this bill, if
cnacted, would materially promote the ef
ficiency of that branch of the District gov
ernment. He states that it is in harmony ,
with the practice of a number of large cities ]
in this country, and the adoption of the
principle here would not be an innovation,
but substantially a reversion to a system i
formerly in vogue by which the administra
tive supervision of tlie fire department was
vested in a board of fire commissioners.
Confers Authority for Appointment.
The bill provides that the Commissioners
be authorized and directed to appoint a
superintendent of the Are department of the
District of Columbia, at a salary of $3,000
per annum, who shall, subject to the direc
tion of the Commissioners, have administra
tive supervision over the affairs of the fire
department. Before entering on his duties
as such he shall take and file with said
Commlsslcnets an oath of office to faithfully
perform said duties, and give such bond
for the faithful performance of said duties
as the Commissioners may require and ap
prove.
A sum sufficient to pay the salary of the i
superintendent from the date of his ap
pointment during the fiscal year ending
June 30, 1904. and also for the fiscal year
ending June .'iO. 1903, is hereby appropriated
out of any moneys in the treasury not oth
erwise appropriated and out of the revenues
of the District of Columbia in equal parts.
Section 2 provides that the provisions of sec
tion 4 of "An act relating to the metropoli
tan police of the District of Columbia," ap
proved February 23, 1901, for the relief of
the chief engineer of the fire department in
case of his retirement as provided by law,
and the relief of his widow and children in
case of his death, are hereby made applica
ble to the other officers of said department
of and above the rank of foreman, and their
widows and children; and the provisions of
law for the relief o{ widows of officers and
other members of the police and fire depart
ments are hereby made applicable to the
dependent mothers of such officers and mem
bers, as the case may be, deceased, under
circumstances similar to those which entitle
widows to such relief.

"The Lyric Element in American History"
is the subject of a paper that Is to be read
by Mr. A. R. SpofTord before the Columbia
Historical Society at the next meeting,
which will be held Monday evening In the
banquet hall of the Slioreham Hotel. The
rich and Interesting materials afforded bj
the songs and ballads of political cam
paigns, as well as those of war periods,
have been somewliat neglected. Mr. Spof
ford will bring out the humorous as well as
tho patriotic element, which Is found in
these expressions of national feeling at
periods when the current of public opinion
ran in stronger currents than Is normally
the case.

Complaint Against Railway Cars.
The Commissioners today received an ad
ditional complaint relative to the transpoi
tation facilities furnished by the Columbia
Railroad Company, operating on H street
northeast, In the form of a petition signed
by W. G. Fowler and other residents in the
vicinity of Kendall Green, who protest
against the style of cars operated on the
line mentioned. In an indorsement on the
petition Commissioner Biddle recommends
that the complaint be considered with the
one received a day or two ago from the
Northeast Washington Citizens' Associa
tion. and which has been sent to the cor
poration counsel to determine whether the
Commissioners have authority to order a
change In the style of street cars.

Alleges Inaccessibility.
Emma H. Adams of 937 N street north
west recently wrote the Commissioners re
questing that orders be given for the re
moval of ashes and other refuse from her
premises, and complaining that the garbage
collector seems to have forgotten her. The
matter was Investigated by Warner Stutler,
superintendent of the street cleaning de
partment, who reports that the reason the
ashes and garbage have not been removed
from the writer's premises is because the
material Is not accessible to the collectors.
The collectors, It Is stated, have to pass
through a shed gate In order to collect the
refuse, and this gate has been kept locked
on the Inside during the hours when the
garbage men have called to collect the ma
terial. Mr. Stutler suggests that Mrs.
Adams make provision so that the col
lectors can gain access to the premises.

preparing for the presentation.

Deficiency Estimates for Militia.
The Commissioners have received from j

"For rent of rifle range for service of the
fiscal year 1898, $250; to reimburse the |
Washington Market Company for furnish
ing and putting in place 1,072 lockers in the

NOW DP TO CONGRESS
WORK ON WAS tCODLEGE TEMPO
RARILY SWSWNDED.
I Awaiting Action UponfRequest for In
creased Limit-of Cost?Funds
Are Inujleqp&te.
Operations on the Wa* College building
| at Washington barracks have been sus
1 pendcd. pending action by Congress on the
request for an increased tfmit of cost, the
building having procrraeped to the point
where further work Is Impossible without
having that question settled.
It is explained that when it was decided
to auk Congress for authority to erect a
' War College building In the flrst Instance
It was necessary to make some sort of es
timate without any study of the subject
whatever. Under those circumstances
| $400,000 was asked for, It being, thought at
that time that that sum would be sufficient
for the War College Itself and a few sets
of quarters for the more prominent officers
! connected with it. After the building was
authorized, however, and the requirements
| of a War College bulldlrtg came to be
studied In detail, it was discovered that
the 1400.000 was not really sufficient for the
| building itself.
When these requirements were placed be
fore the architects, and they produced their
I ~ Preliminary plans, Involving a
amount of architectural treat
I i' k n?!as found tl?*t the plans called
Mmnm" ? ^?ich would have cost from
I J*?'?? l? W.000,000. That amount was
a manifestly beyond the limit, so
IevlsIon was made, the requlre
flcor space cut down to a mini
[ pi." Shc* Si?"',o ? i*rtec")'
Cost Under Present Plana
The plans as they now stand will require
about $000,000 for the building proper and
11100,000 for an external power plant and for
| the approaches, in that connection the
fact that the United States has accepted
the statue of Frederick the Great and de
cided to emplace It in the War College
grounds was given due consideration. It
V5. Vuryw Probable that from time
to time it might be desirable to erect stat
ues of other military leaders, including
I ?ur ?wn country. The question of
properly locating the statue or statues with
reference to the building had, therefore, to
Idered. The plan finally .tdopted
provides pedestals for six statues along the
terrace which forms a part of the ap
proaches to the building, and also a part
of the road and sidewalk syste.-n of the res
| ervation. It was thought that the erection
or statues of men such as Frederick the
Cireat, whose genius has marked epochs In
Wo? o *?fy of. rn'I]tary art. In front of the
War College building would be peculiarly
| appropriate. *
Building of Simple Design.
The plans as adopted call for a brick
building of very simple design, trimmed
with limestone; with a broad terrace in
front, from the center of which the main
steps rise to the front entrance. Along the
front or north edge of the terrace are ar
ranged the six pedestals, on one of which.
It is tliought, the status of Frederick ih?
Great can be properly placed. On either
side or the main entrance steps is a space
where statues of our own military leaders
could appropriately, be pla-ed In due sta
syn. If the six pedestals be reserved for
epoch-making genlUHes. the entire past and
much of the future will J?e amply provided
All of the work involved In tiie War Col
lege building proper and the grounds end
approaches thereto. It Is estimated will
cost about $700,000. and Congress has been
esked to authorize this increased limit of
cost. Bv direction of the Secretary of
war, operations have been suspended pend
