THE ABM.J011U EMA, jp28-6t-1 STUTLEROTDESTAID Makes Sweeping Denial of Charges Against Him. ANSWERS HIS ACCUSER HBAmnO= 2MUN THIS MOBING, LASTS MOST ALL DAY. Superintendent of Street Cleaning De clares He Received No Gifts or Money From Contractor. Practically all of tis morning's session of the investigation into the charges. of mal administration against Warner Stutler. su perintendent of street cleaning. wasa ecu pied by Mr. Stutler as witness in. his own behalf. in refuting the testirr.ony presented 3,tsterday afte:noon by Royal Robinson and witnesses summoned by him with reference to the second charge that Mr. 'tutler 'Der mitted Contractor Rusk to furnlsh a poor and inefficient service in ,leaning uninprov ed streets. Also that Rusk had been al loied to pay his employes lessthan the rate of wages specitied by the contract. One of the most important inciden's dur ing Mr. Stutler's examination was his spe cihic denial. iI reply to questions by Judge Cole. that he had -ever been connected in a business way with Mr. Rusk-other than as a stockholder in a broom company in .N and that he had ever received aigt m ey gt any time, -either direet.y or ind.rcciY, from- Mr. Rusk. At one point during hils examination Mr Stutler admitted that he had not considered it. his uu-y to see to it that Mr. Rusk paid -his empioyes the rate of wages specified in the contract. The Fourth Charge. The morning -sessfon Pasted until 1:15 o'clock. when a reccss was taken until 2:30. At the beginning of the afternoon session Commissioner Macfarland s:ated that the court of inquiry would listen to testimuuY relative to the fourth charge preferred by Mr.. Robinson. This chaige reads as iul lows: "During the months of Xay and June. 1tOi, while Lilly'and Robinson wer" do.ng the machine work at night, Mr. Stutler requirr d them to clean 14th stret and Penn sylvania avenue ev.ry Mond ty mrnuntg at 7::;0 o-c.ock. It being an unusual den :id, and v, ry much of a h-trdship. the c-tr.ict s twie eased to be released from it, but 'Mr. Scutler refused. saying that 'ommis siontr West had ordered the extra work, and insisted th:it it should be done. Mr. Rusk got the contract July 1 and went out the following Monday morning with so small a force that he dad -not get done until noon. He was not required to do it agai:." The following inspectors In the street ci, aning department were present when the inquiry was resumed this afternoon: A. Ii. Pruitt, E. E. Barnes and Webster teemel'. Second Charge Answered. Commissioner Macfarland called the morning session of the Stutler inquiry to order at 141:43 o'clock. Mr. Robinson. hav ing finished last night with the presenta tion of evidence in support of the second count under his charges. Mr. Stutler was ased to present his side of the case with r-ference to the second charge. Mr. Stutler said provision is made for hiring extra laborers and carts in order to meet extraordinary conditions. With ref erence to the District being "worked for extras" by Mr. Rusk. Mr. Stutler said tflat when conditions of the weather were such that the contractor could not work and the District was obl ged to meet extraordinary conditions by employing extra labor on the streets, men and carts were secured of the contractor at a fair reasonable price for the force and tools. In t-stifying as to the trouble inspector loock seemed to have with the men under his direction. Mr. Stutler said on one oc casion he learned at the time from Boock that when the men appeared for work one morning he told them that he did not in tend to have any loafing. The inspector. Stutler said, told him that he cal:ed the street sweepers jail birds. Witness said he cautioned Boock about antagonizing the men under him. Mt. Stutler declared that a number of complaints made by Boock about "mean" laborers' were investigated and in most cases the men were discharged. "The majority 'f Inspector .*>ock's com plaints." said Mr. Stutler, "were about little, trivial things, such as the merchants at the market throwing a cabbage leaf into the street. All these little things were compl tined of by Boock and the merchants protested against such proceedings. I told Mr. Booe.k to make allowances for unusual conditions at the market and to use some tact in his dealings with the merchants and also with the men. Boock Became Angry. "Boock became angry at my saying this and s-aid he could run his work without in terference from me." As to the hiring of extra men and carts, -Mr. Stutler produced daily records show ing the number of extra men and wagons Iemployedi and the reasons for their employ ment. For the fiscal year 1900 there was a large expenditure for extra force about the market and for extra sprinklers, ac cording to the witness. Mr. Stutler said work done by ihe con tractor on unimproved streets in the years 1001,. 1902 and 1tai was satisfactory. Out side of Inspector Fooek's complaints the complaints of the inspector's as to the character of the work, witness said, were very few. Boock complained frequenttly. Ireply to questions from CommissIoner Macfarland Mr. Stutler said the merchants at the market reported that Boock. annoyed Sthem, Hie said he wanted Mr. Boock to Skeep the streets clean and to use good judgment in meeting conditions, Instead of fmerely complaining of every little thing to the superintendent. He said Mr. Boock seemed to have unnecessary trouble with the laborers because of lack of tact. Boock, h le said, also had difficulty In understanding t his orders and duties on account of not be ing fam!Nar with the English language. Relative to the inspectors getting the Smoney from the contractor and paying tha Slatter's employes, Mr. Stutler said as .soon as this practice was called to his attention. some time ago, he ordered it stopped. It was done by the Inspectors as an accomt p modation to the men and not for a comn - pensation. Mr. Stutler said that the contract for street cleaning provides that laborers shall be. paid $1.23 a day and that drivers of dump carts shall be able-bodied men. Only within the past year or two, *itneai said. have there been any complaints about drivers. He said conditions when com plained of have been promptly remedied and inspectors have instructions to dis charge incompetent employes. He had un Sderstood that Rush paid his laborers $Lti a day. HIe said he had never beard before yesterday that the drivers on carts were getting only $1 a day. * Commissioner West quoted provision. In contracts of l1900 and 19031 requiring drivers - of carts to be adults. I"IDo you know, as a fact." asked Mr. iWest, "that all the drivers on carts were adults?" Were Drivers Adults? "I never had any reports to the con trary. Nearly all ilhe driver-s I have seet appea.red to be over twenty-one years of age. Whenever I have seen a boy on th4 carts. I have ordered him off and required that he be replaced by a men." Mr. West asked If drivers were consider ed as laborers. Mr. Stutler said that hi did not know as to that, but that If therl had ever been any complaint about drivern receiving $1 or 75 cents a day, he would have taken up the matter and have had the question determilned as to irhether or no1 there should be any discrimination betweer -driveu% and laborers. "Thea you did not consdemr it your dutl to see whether or not the *rivers wert a paid $1.l a day?"-asked Mr.. West. eg*No., ir," answered. the witness. '4In reply to questions Mr. 3t;utler sab the inspector's were not given . I~of thi coatract between the Distriot an the stre. swee, nie. wea ds_ resqgsed The beever, said, are in ~ ~frb . Replying to questions of Capt. Hardnga Mr. Stutler said the wage cense was put 'in contracts because it-was-equired by act of. Cpigss;in* 14l1. e said .b neYW -in rtuoted the-dtspectbrs to iagise.1nto the 'ratter to determine wlether the contractor was paying such wages. Witness said fur ther that he doesn't regard drivers as laborers entitled under thd provisions of the act 'to receive wages .At the rate of 51.25 a day. In response to questldns of Judge Cale Mr. Stutler said that the'4nspeetors have orders to send home unfit horses and in efrclent employes without ir4t- getting au thority from the superintendent. Pertinent Questions. Prior to the conclusion of Mr. Stutlee's examination Judge Cle stated that he de sired to ask him a few pertinent questions relative to the general charge of maladmin Istration in office. Judge. Cole-"Have you ever had any business relations with R. V. Rusk other than In that broom company in iM and Mr. Stutler-"None whatever." Judge Cole-"Have you ever received any gift from Mr. Itusk?' Mr. Stutler-"I have not." Judge Cole-"Have you ever at any time received any money, either directly or in directly, from Mr. Rusk?" ^Mr. Stutler-"I have never received one cent from Mr. Rusk. either directly or in directly." Judge Cole-"Have you ever shown Mr. Rush any favors?" "Mr. Stutier-"Never." Judge- Cole--"Ever favored Mr. Rusk to the detrisent of the District?' Mr. Stutler-"I never have." Witness testified that he had treated Mr. Rusk the same as other contractors. Mr. Robinson asked Mr. Stutler if he had any authority to clean paved streets and charge the expense to the appropria tion for cleaning unimproved streets. Mr. Stutler said that he has authority under the contracts to have done work of any class that is ordered by the Commis sioners. He mentioned that the contractor is not required to clean off snow and ice from the streets under his regular con tract. This is a charge on the District. Drivers Not Laborers. In reply to a question of Mr. Robinson. Mr. Stutler said he made a distinction be tween laborers and drivers of carts, because laborers and drivers were specifically and separately mentioned in the law and the specifications. Mr. Stutler stated that always at the be ginning of each year he makes an inspec tion of the contractor's horses. harness. carts, etc. There was some argument betwecf Mr. Robinson and Mr. Stutler relative to the number of days Rusk's force worked last Fubrwo-iry as comrpared to the work done by Lilly & Robinson the preceding winter. Mr. Robinson's r""marks seemed to imply that Husk was allowed to work a greater num ber of diays. although the weather last Feb ruary was more unfavorable than in Feb ruary of the previous year. Mr. Doyle then testified that the work of Mr. Itusk on unimproved streets is very good. Around the market. he says, the coinditions are unusual. and it is necessary to keep the contractor at work in that section. Mt. Doyle said that before last November boys were employed by Mr. Rusk. but sub seeuent to that time Mr. Stutter issued an order that only men, over twenty-one years of age. should be employed. ' He said that since that order wag issued he had seen no boys on the work. Witness stated that while he was an In spector on the outside work he made but ftw complaints to the superintendent's cffBce. He said he usually corrected faults himself. Mr. Doyle recited an inst--nce occurring since he has been chief inspector wherein he was obliged to give Inspector Boock instructions as to the work, to *hich in structions Buock raised objections. From Doyle's testimony it seemed that Inspector Boock objected to the chief in-pector's ex ercising authority over him. and the matter had to be reported to the office, where the superintendent sustained Chief Inspec tor Doyle. As a general rule, Mr. Doyle said, the horses furnished by the contractor were suitable for the work o:i which they were used. He s t:d the insprctors had explicit orders to send to the barn any unfit animal. Mr. Doyle knew nothing about wages paid the laborers or drivers. He testified that it has not been found n-ces.sary to employ extra carts or men to clean streets because of poor work by the contractor. Mr. Robinson proceeded to question Mr. Doyle. In reply to questions, Mr. Doyle said the gang under supervision of Inspec tor Rockwell is one of the best gangs in the street cleaning service. The court took a recess at 1:15 until 2:3U o'clock. Yesterday Afternoon. After The Star's report of the investiga tion closed yesterday afternoon the Com missioners proceeded with the inquiry into the charges contained in the second count in the allegations against Mr. Stutler wherein it is charged that Mr. Stutler permitted R. V. Rusk, contractor for cleaning unimproved streets during the fiscal years 1901, 1902 and 1903. to employ inefficient boys and old men and broken down horses and mules, at lower wages than the contraet specified should be paid. Mr. Robinson, in his charges, alleged that the inspectors complained of poor service, but that no improvement was required of the contractor. Five inspectors in the street cleaning service were examined relative to the charge contained in the second count. These were Inspectors Elbert Claggett, J. I. Barrick, Gustav Boock and C. 0. Rock well. and former Inspector James Hender shot. All the witnesses, with the excep tion of Boock, testified that their com plaints about boys and poor horses and mules had been attended to promptly by the superintendent. They stated that they had occasion to complain to Mr. Stutler about the service only a few times. All the in spectors admitted that they had never re ported to Mr. Stutler the amount of wages the drivers of carts claimed they were get ting. Inspector Boock is a foreigner and had considerable difficulty in understanding the Questions and also in formulating his re plies. On several occasions he became con fused and freqeently said 1n reply toa question: "I'll have to think it over." IneffBciency Charged. Royal Robinson. the first witness yester day afternoon, said Mr. Stutler told hin early in 1903 that Rusk was the man te be beaten in the coming bids for cleaning streets. Stutler, he said, accused Ruck of not paying 51.25 per day, and declared if he did get the contract again he would have ti change his tactics. Mr. Robinson said hi could prove the inefficiency 9f the laborers, but not the wages. At this point Mr. Robinson asked to make a brief statement about his witnesses. Al excepting one witness, he said, are em ployed in the street-cleaning departmnt. "They are old men." said Mr. Robinson, "and ever since these charges were pre ferred Mr. Stutler has been busy brow beating and, intimidating these old men im the street-cleaning service. In simple jus tice to these District employee who come in here to testify I think they should be as sured that no matter what they testify to, if it is the truth, they shall not be molested in their position." SCommniioner' acfariand. on behalf of the Commissioners. assured Mr. Robinsor that- the employee will not be disturbed ii their positions because of their testimony presuming it to be the truth. Before giv ing theIr testimony all of the inspectors were 1nformed that their evidence befori the board would not interfere with the 5e curity of their positions in the Districi service. Inspector Claggett said he has been an in spector in the street-cleaning service on un improved streets for the past fifteen years In reply to questions of Mr. Macfariandl witness said that the contractors on stree cleaning had always employed young mue' or grown boys as drivers of carts. There are some old men under him. too, he said but he had no complaint to make as to the general eUlciency of the boys or old men On two occasions, he said, some of the boys driving carts had loafed at the dumps. He complained to Mr. Stutler, and that ofBlcial witness said, ordered him to send thee lasy boys home. Mr. Claggett said he di. not complain because the drivers weri boys. but because they were lasy and shift less boys. Mr. Rush, he said, was not the only contractor who had employed boya All the contractors had boys for driver. Witness sald.that he one comuplained C a poor mule in the service.

"Did you ever receive any gift-or present from Mr. tush?" casked Mr. West. "None at all. I belieVe be did give me a cigar. one*" replied1 the -witness. Witness said that ,last fall some of the drivers told . hin their wages had been raised fren IS cents a..,day to $1. He said be had nerlr mnentioNied the matter of driv ers' wages- to Mr. Stuter. The-inspector stated that Mr. Stutler. had never tried to ahield- the contractor in any complaints made by witness. '. Mr. Barriek said that he- had been accus tomed to getting the money 'frol Kr. Rusk with which to pay'tfe men' on pay days as an accommodation to the men. Mr. -Stut ler, he sa.d. had never ordered him to -do 'this' In fact had riot spoken to him about it. 'Mr. :Hendershot, A former 'inspector about the markets, but now employed In the as sessor's office, said on one ocesion he had a poor horse on the work. He telephoned Mr. Stutler about the horse. He said he also called' the condition of the horse to the attention of the 11umane Society agent._and the horse was remQved by him about one hour after the coppla'int was made to- Mr. Stutter. Mr.; Hendertho1. .aid he ~tolerated poor service for a few -days. on promise of bet terment. He saidhe did this on his own judgment ano.rfot-t. Mr. Stutler's sugges tion. Btrock Thinkst Over. The next witness was Gustav Boock. in spector of street c.eaiing about the mar kets. Ie safd horses employed on the work by Mr. Rusk hac.been. taken away occa sionally by the Humane Society. The drivers, he said. Were, not always satisfac tory. He said they were "mean and talked back" to him. During the early part of last year. Boock said. he complained to Mr. Stutter - about the horses and mules about once a month, and - after that his complaints were less frequent. He said he also had occasibh-about two years ago, during a brief period, to report drivers about once a day, -- Boock said that Mr. Stutler told him he made more complaints than any of the other Inspectors., "Mr. Stutler said the other -inspectors Wouldn't have such com plaints to make; " said the witness. The inspector did not'know whether Mr. Stut ter tried to dlscotsrsge his complaining or not;' he said he 'outd "have to think It over." He also wanted to think over a question asked by Judge Cole as to whether or not Mr. Stutter had told him to send away any poor horses put on the work by the cort tractor. lioock testified- that' he had been In the habit. about - two Weacb ago, of getting the wages- of the erile 'mployed by Rusk on pay days and iturning it over to the em ployes of the ctitrantor. During -the past year, he said, hehad not done this, having had instructiori fr6h the superintendent's office to stop tht-prakdtice. The last witness of:the day was Inspector C. U. Rockwell,pf _Sp K street northwest. He has been ari inspector a year, and has never complained of a 'horse or-mule, both being good. One -man, lazy, was dis charged. Mr. Satter telling him whenever he had a man who Wouldn't work to dis charge. him. 'The oldest man he had was about sixty-five: yearp old, but not inefi cient. He .once had-three boys, despite the fact that an order had gene out to employ no one under twenty-pne. One of these was seventeen. He told them not to come back another.day, They.didg't. At first, like other inspectors, he said, he got the men's-wages. Later Stutter ordered him to do it no.tnore. The hearing lasted until shortly before r6 o'clock last night, when it was an nounced that a session would be held be ginning at 10:30 o'clock this morning. HOUSES AUCTIONED OFF.

Plans have been arranged to deliver meat by railroad to packing.house branches in various parts of the city. APPLIED FOR AID AND RELIEF. Families of Strikers at St. Joe Ask Assistance. ST. JOSEPH.

KANSAS CITY, Mo., July 27.-Armour & Co. tried today to take thirty negroes in a box car into their plant, but a mob of strikers and strike sympathizers forced the crew to stop the train. Some of the negroes were pulled off and roughly han dIed, but some jumped from the car and escaped. When the police arrived the crowd had dispersed. At several other points strike breakers were attacked by strikers, but no- one was seriously hurt. Following these disturbances an extra force of police was sent to the district. Strikers assert that twenty-five of their number who were re-employed yesterday sought their old positions to learn the ac tual conditions in the different plants and urge the strike breakers there to go out. Today each of the plants increased its forces, all representing steady progress in every department. At a special meeting tonight the allied trades will vote on the matter of a sym pathetic strike. Many strikers applied for their old posi tions and were re-employed at the plants of Armour & Co., Swift & Co. and the Fow Ier Packing Company today. I. H. Rich, manager for Swift & Co., said today: "We consider the strike nearly over as far as this plant Is concerned. We took back today perhaps lot) of our old men.
