authorizing improvements in the Distric*.
and other legislation, and reports on ~<lls

The Commissioners reported favorably
upon the bill providing for the extension of

cost of this extension is estimated at $7,000.
of which a part would be assessed against
adjacent property.
The bill providing for the incorporation of
the Mutual Investment Fire Insurance
Company of the District is recommended
favorably for passage by the Commission
ers if amended by inserting the word "as
sets" In lieu of the words "capital sto<fk."
The passage of the following bill relative
to bonds on contracts with the District Is
also requested by the Commissioners:
"That in all cases where the Commission
ers of the District of Columbia enter into
contracts for work or material they shall
require good and sufficient bonds to tho
United States in a penal sum sufficient, In
their judgment, to secure the strict and
faithful performance ot said contracts to
the satisfaction of and acceptance by the
Commissioners, and guaranteeing that the
contractors shall keep new pavements or
other new works In repair for a term of five
years from the date of completion of their
contracts, which sum shall not In any case
be less than i"? per centum of the estimated
cost of such work or material."
Alleys and Minor Streets.
The Commissioners recommend the en
actment of a law empowering the D strict
authorities to authorize the oj>ening of al
leys and minor s.reets in the Distr.ct. and
suggesting the manner of procedure in such
cases. This bill has been previously pub
lished in The Star.

With regard to the till providing for the
opening of R street northeast to .18.h street,
and of 28th street northeast from R street
to M street, the Commissioners transmitted
the following report to the chairmen of the
District congressional committees:
"The bill prov.des for the improvement ot
streets which are in accordance with the
highway extension plans and which the p ir
ties owning the land are ready to dedicate.
These proposed streets are in a part of the
District which has few h gliways. A bill
similar to this one was introduced at the
first session of the Fifty-s -venth Congress
and favorably reported upon by the Com
missioners. The amount named in that
bill was not sufficient for the purpose, but
the appropriation carried by the present
bill?*21,200?Is sufficient. While the Com
missioners are in favor of the development
of some streets in this vicinity, they do not
prefer the streets mentioned in the bill to
those which they have already recommend
ed In their estimates for Improvement."

competent committee, elected at a mass
meeting of citizens about two weeks ago.
This committee includes many of tho most
prominent merchants and professional men
of the town, the burgess of Butler being
one of the members.
"Investigation shows that at least S75,
