ALHXANDRIA, Va.. August 4, iML Ernest Mills and James. better khown as "Barney," Richards, arrested on suspicion of treaking into a frieght ear on the Southern road with intent to steal there from, were called before Justice Caton in the police court this morning. Owing to the absence of Commonwealth Attorney Brent the preliminary hearing was post poned until tomorrow morning. The men were arrested by Officers Knight. Bettis and Beach. An attempt of two men to force an entrance into a ear in the railroad yard on North Fairfax street was discovered and frustrated by the night watchman, who ran the intruders away with his pistol. The seal of the car had been broken and the door almost forced. The arrest of Richards and Mills followed a short investigation of the matter by the officers. Railroad robberies, not to mention numer ous unsucessful attempts, have become no ticeably frequent in and about this city in the past several months. It is stated that In the past year or so many thousands of dollars have been lost in this way by the railroad companies, whose lines center In Alexandria. Believes He Will Be Nominated. Mr. James R. Caton of this city Is at tending the annual session of the Virginia State Bar Association at Hot Springs. Mr. Caton is a candidate for the democratic nomination for lieutenant governor, and is quoted at Hot Springs as expressing the belief that he will be nominated. The oth er candidate who has announced himself for the honor is Mr. Charles T. Bland of Portsmouth. Both are members of the hctse of delegates. Mr. Caton has repre sented this city and county for the past two terms, and has done important work. notably as a member of the constitutional convention. General Matters. The funeral of Capt. Joseph Massey. whose death occurred Tuesday, took place yesterday afternoon at 5 o'clock from the undertaking rooms of B. Wheatley, on King street. Many rivermen who were formerly associated with the deceased at tended. The services were conducted by Rev. C. Adam Kress of the Free Methodist Church. The funeral of John O'Neal. who died Monday. took place this morning at 9 o'clock from St. Mary's Church. Rev. Fa ther H. J. Cutler officiated, and the inter ment was made in St. Mary's cemetery. The Friendship fire company is making arrangements for its appearance in the pa rade here during the annual convention of the Virginia State Firemen's Association. Among the members of the Friendship company are some of the oldest citizens of the city. The monthly meeting of the city school board will be held this evening, when the time for the opening of the schools for next session will be decided upon. - PLAN DISAPPBOVZD. Commissioners Not to Beconstruct Anacostia Bridge Without Draw. Secretary Taft today approved the rec ommendation of Gen. Mackenzie, chief of engineers, that the District Commissioners be informed that their plan for the recon struction of the Anacostia bridge without a draw had been disapproved on the ground that a structure of that character would be an interference with the navigation of the river. The local engineer office, to whom the matter- was referred, reported that a -full investigation led to the conclusion that the ,new Anacostia bridge should be built with a proper draw. In order not to be a serious : obstacle to navigation. "Harbor lines have : been established on the Anacostia river." he said, "up to the Pennsylvania railroad bridge, approximately 6,000 feet above the bridge in question, and it is proper the owners of the water front should be able to utilize that portion of the river. There are already two wharves constructed above this bridge, one belonging to the Washington Gas Light Company and the other to the Allegheny Company, the business being principally the handling of coal. These parties claim a business of about 180,000 tons per annum. In order to handle a business of that or any other character above the proposed bridge vessels should be able to approach the wharves without evious handling of. the cargo. That wuld not be possible with an existing bridge below without a draw. I therefore recommend that the proposed bridge be built with a suitable draw span. If the bridge is built as recommended, with a: draw span, that span should be located as: nearly as may be midway between pier lines as determined. The draw span should have a clear channel width of 100 feet." Gen. Mackenzie approved this report, and the Secretary of War has directed that the District Commissioners be notified accord ingly. The plans of the Commissioners called for a fixed bridge with a maximum clearance of 21 feet above low water and sninimum spans of 150 feet. RMEDruY PROPOSED. Pertilizing Company to Improve the Garbage Service. Assistant Superintendent Twohey, who is in charge of the street cleaning de- : partment during the illness of Mr. Stut- = ler, reported today that he had received fifty-nine complaints from citizens today relative to the failure of the garbage Company to remove garbage. Yesterday the complaints numbered ninety-five. At the headquarters of the Washington Fertilizer Company today It was stated that the company has made arrangements to remedy the lyad conditions existing for the past few days, with reference to the removal of garbage, and that the com pany believes there will be no further trouble over the matter. The garbage company was inclined to blame the rail road company for the conditions, stating that the railroati company has failed to move its garbage cars promptly. Commissioner West today received a communication from W. D. Duke, general manager of the Richmond, Fredericks burg and Potomac Railroad Company, in which it. is asserted that the railroad company is not responsible for the condi tions of the past few days. "'Of course," says Manager Duke, "it Is natural for the fertilizer company to put the blame upon the railroad company, but I do not think that you can reason ably expect us to move these cars at any hour of the day or night, as there are cer. tain conditions over which we have no control which regulate the movement of trains into and out of Washington. "If the fertilizer compahy will put more cars Into the service, which we have sug gested more than once, it seems to us that the demands during the summer season could be more easily met. It is not safe to count upon moving a load 6f garbage to Cherry Hill and returning the empties to Washington within, twenty four hours." DEATES TEE PAST WEEE, District Depsanenmt ~3eperte Deelne Th of Nearly 30 Per Cent,. Teweekly report of the health depart met. qubmitted to the Commissioners to day by Dr: Williams C. Woodward, shows that there were 102 deaths In the District e of Columbia during the week ended on Sat- a rday, July 30, 19U6.
