prepared by the Fire Marshal ? Com
missioner Macfarland's In
dorsement Thereon.
With a view to minimizing the danger to
life and property from inflammable oils,
and especially gasoline. Commissioner Mac
fnrland this morning approved a recom
mendation of Fire Marshal Sidney Bieber,
{bat a new amendment to the police regu
lations. governing the storage of Inflam
mable oils, be adoptfd. The regulation was
prepared by Fire Marshal Bleber after con
sultations with Commissioner Macfarland.
representatives of the board of lire under
writers and others, and it wlllj>e adopted
as Section 5. Article 2 of the District police
The text of the new regulation Is as fol
"No license will lie granted for the stor
ing or keeping of said articles, or any of
them, unless the same be stored or kept
In an iron or steel tank of design and con
struction as approved by the building in
spector. said tank to be burled under
ground with the top at least three feet be
neath the surface and at least si* feet out
side and away from the nearest wall of any
building, and the maximum amount stored
therein shall not excetd fifty gallons and
not more than one tank shall be permitted
upon the same premises."
Mr. Bieber's Statement.
Jn his recommendation on the matter.
Fire Marshal Bleber mentions that the new
regulation only provides against the storage
of Inflammable oils above the cellar, and
ofTers no restrictions whatever for Its
storage In cellars. Continuing, he says:
"Tho present regulation on this subject not
Only allows the storage of inflammable oils
In buildings occupied In whole or In part
for dwelling purposes?a condition this of
fice has repeatedly complained of?but It
allows the storage of the same In cellars
without restriction at all. It Is often the
case that this office Is compelled to state
to the assessor that the applicant for per
mit to store and sell Inflammable oils has
complied with the law. when It Is consclen
tously believed that the storage would be
hazardous and so states to the vender, but
there Is no law whereby a permit can be
denied In such cases."
Mr. Bleber stated that It would be almost
Impossible to restrict the storago of In
flammable oils to such an extent that there
would !>e no danger In their storage, but
he believes the new regulation will reduce
to a minimum the liability of fire from the
storage of oils.
Mr. Macfarland's Indorsement.
Commissioner Macfarland's Indorsement
on the papers Is as foil awn: "With a view
to minimizing tho danger to life and prop
erty from Inflammable oils, and especially
gasoline. I move the approval of the fire
marshal's recommendation after It shall
have l>een sent to the corporation counsel
and Its form approved by him. I feel that
there Is great need for the improvement of
the regulations in this respect."
There has been considerable agitation
within the past few years to secure the
adoption of a law to more adequately pro
tect life and property from danger Incident
to the storage and sale of gasoline. The
preparation and adoption or a regulation
to govern the matter has been under con
sideration by the authorities for a long
time, and it Is believed the new regulation
will operate to reduce fire risks.
Other Men to Be Put to Work Tomor
The lone colored bricklayer. George Tay
lor. was not at work today on the walls
of the army building under construction
at Washington barracks. His absence,
however, was not due to the recent strike
of twenty-eight white bricklayers, but to
the rain, which fell at Intervals during the
Had it not been for tho rain Taylor would
have had company on tfce works today, and
9hould there be clear or fair weather to
morrow two and perhaps more bricklayers
will Join him. The two men who were to
have gone to work this morning will be
tested as to their ability as layers of bricks
before being certitled by Captain Sewell as
regular employes.
The employment of these men marks the
first break in the bricklayers' strike against
Uncle 8am Other bricklayers whose
names will be taken from the eligible list
of tho civil service commission, will be
added to the force as rapidly as posslMe,
and the engineer officers believe work will
be resumed at all points within the next
rew days.
The question as to whether the new men
are or are not members of any labor union
will not be allowed to enter Into the mat
ter. The capability of the men as brick
layers and their industry and steadiness
will alone be considered.
A number of applications for employment
on the work have been received by Captain
Sewell outside of the civil service rules.
A man named Reed stated that he had writ
ten to the captain and agreed to furnish
him with ten bricklayers.
"But they are not all white men," said
Reed, "nor are they all members of labor
The engineer officers regard the putting
to work of new men at Washington bar
racks as the practical collapse of the strike.
They say tho Indications are that a full
force of bricklayers can and will be ob
tained. Leaders In the labor organizations
take a contrary view. They maintain tliat
the government cannot afford to have its
buildings erected by "scab" labor, and
threa-ten to make an appeal to President
Officials a. the navy yard stated today
tha* there are now no prospects of a strike
of the forty-six bricklayers employed there.
The men at work there ase decidedly op
posed to entering ujon a strike, the ifH
i-taLs state, and would stoutly resist any
efforts In that direction. The strike at the
Washington barracks, it was added, fur
nished an object lesson from which they
will profit.
The bricklayers and other mechanics em
ployed at the navy yard are taken In order
of priority from lists of eligible* furnished
by the labor bureau of the yard. These
employes are given annual leave with pay
and have a half-day holiday on Saturdays.
There are colored bricklayers at work
there, but tho color line does not appear
to have been drawn.
It Is the opinion of Mr Milford Spohn.
secretary of the local bricklayers' union,
that the government cannot get enough
of non-union bricklayers to take the
places of the strikers Should union men
go to work while the strike is on they
would be fined $10 for every day they
"Civil service, as it applies to per diem
men," said Mr. Spohn. "Is a farce and a
fraud. It Is at the bottom of this trouble
at Washington barracks. The civil serv
ice fosters and harbors the worst men In
the trade. From the union's point of
view this strike Is In statu quo. We are
waiting for developments. The whole
matter will be considered at the next
meeting of our union. July 28. It may be
carried before the national officers."
Mr. Price Not Involved.
In regard to the suit for damages filed
by a Dr. Arlieely against K. F Price & Co.
for the alleged loss of manuscript, Mr.
Price says he had severed his connection
