of treaking into a frieght ear on the

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
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.
Pertilizing Company to Improve the
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
