F03 BRIDGE APPBOACHR,
Meeting Held to Discuse the Condem
nation Proceedings, -
A meeting was held this mhorning at the
office of Col. Miller of the Engineer Corps,
Pennsylvania avenue and 29th street, for
the purpose of discussing the matter of
condemning property on the Virginia side
of the river to be used as the approach to
the new highway bridge. Under the new
code of Virginia the condemnation pro
ceedings will have to be conducted by the
board of supervisors of Alexandria county,
of which Dr. Rust is chairman. He was
unable to be present this morning, as he
was attacked by a boar yesterday and his
leg was badly wounded. The other mem
bers of the board, W. W. Douglass and
William Febrey, were present.
Commonwealth's Attorney Crandall Mack
ey, George H. Rucker, clerk of the county
court; George E. Garrett, county surveyor,
and J. E. Sickles, former surveyor of the
county, were in attendance at the meeting
in the interest of the county. Mr. Frank
Hume, Mr. Andrew D. Graham, Mr. Frank
Lyon and Mr. Colvin, manager of the Wash
ington, Alexandria and Mount Vernon elec
tric railroad, attended the meeting in the
interest of the property owners along the
proposed line of the approach from the
Alexandria pike to the bridge. Mr. T. L.
Holbrook appeared as the representative of
the brick yard interests across the river.
Three routes were discussed and the mid
dle, or most direct one, was the one favored
by those who were in attendance. The se
lection of this route, it was explained,
would mean the saving of at least 8,OJU
linear feet of travel a day to each team
from the brick yards. The agreement
reached by the engineer and the Virginia
interests is tentative. The route selected
is through the old race track property,
known as Alexander Island, and its con
struction will mean the filling of a con
siderable portion of the marsh in that
vicinity. On account of the topography of
the country the earth to be used in filling
the marsh will have to be hauled a long
distance, and this will materially increase
the cost of construction. It is estimated
that the cost of this work will reach 57,0UU.
The first thing to be done Will be the ap
pointment of five viewers, who will look
over the proposed route and report the ap
proximate cost of the land. This will be
done immediately, as it is the desire of the
engineers to have the land condemned and
work started as soon as possible. Com
monwealth's Attorney Mackey. who will
conduct the proceedings, will do what he
can to expedite matters.
PLAN ADOPTED.
Arrangements for the Care of Persons
Suspected of Insanity.
Arrangements have been made by the
authorities for providing additional ac
commodations at the Washington Asy
lum Hospital for the insane suspects.
sick prisoners and other special patients
sent to the institution. Instead of erect
ing a separate building additional and
more suitable quarters for these patients
will be made by dividing two large
rooms in the hospital by means of par
titions.
Building Inspector Ashford and Super
intendent Zinkhan inspected the build
ings at the asylum the other day, and
the Commissioners have approved their
sugestions for additional accommoda
tions.
There are at present two large receiv
ing wards suitable for detaining insane
suspects. These two rooms will be di
vided into four rooms. A hall bath room
will be taken out, permitting connection
between the two large wards. Then a
smaller room which has formerly been
used as a store room, adjoining one of the
strong wards, will be fitted up as a cell
suitable for detaining insane suspects,
delirium tremens subjects, sick prison
ers, etc. By this plan there will be pro
vided five cells in the hospital instead of
only two as at present.
It Is believed that this arrangement
will remedy the conditions to a consid
erable extent for the present, until Con
gress can be induced to provide a suit
able separate building for this special
class of patients.
THE PORTO RICAN TEACHERS.
Party to Arrive Here Friday Next
Conference Regarding Program.
Dr. Roland P. Falkner, who will become
commissioner of education for Porto Rico
after October 1, called on Commissioner
Macfarland this morning to confer with
that official relative to the proposed visit
to Washington next Friday of the Porto
Rican teachers.
These teachers, about 600 in number, have
been attending summer schools in Cornell
and Harvard. The teachers will arrive In
Washington next Friday morning at 11
o'clock over the Pennsylvania railroad, and
w'll leave the city about 4 p.m. They will
be accompanied by Dr. S. M. Lindsay, pres
ent commissioner of education for Porto
Rico, and members of his staff.
Commissioner Macfarland told Dr. Falk
ner that the Commissioners have secured
assistance from members of the Board of
Trade and Business Men's Association, and
other citizens of Washington in providing
for the entertainment of the Instructors
from the little Island. *
The local committees have arranged to
meet the teachers at the Pennsylvania
station and take them on street cars, im
mediately after their arrival, to the Capitol
and the Library of Congress. From the
library the visitors will be taken to the
Arlington Hotel, where they will be wel
comed by the Commissioners, and an in
formal reception will be held by the local
authorities, assisted by representatives of
the Board of Trade and the Business Men's
Association. Luncheon will be served the
visitors at the Arlington, and at 2:30 o'clock
In the afternoon they will be received by
President Roosevelt. The visitors will leave
Washington at 4 p.m. for Philadelphia.
Dr. Falkner expressed to Commissioner
Macfariand his appreciation of the efforts
made by the authorities and associations
and citizens looking toward the entertain
ment of the teachers.
ENFORCING CONTRACT.
Contractor Notifled of Dereliction in
Garbage Service.
The District Commissioners are determin
ed to 'do everything in their power to rem
edy the unsatisfactry condition existing
lately with respect to the removal of gar
bage from the residences in Washington.
In evidence of this statement, is the action
of the Commissioners this morning, in ap
proving the following recommendation of
Commissioner West:
"I move that the Washington Fertilizer
Company be notified that it Is failing to
supply daily service in all parts of the city,
as required by the contract, and that the
Commissioners wiii hold the company re
sponsible for a strict performance of the
contract. The number of complaints now
being received is unusually large."'
Sixty-five complaints relative to the gar
bage service were received at the street
cleaning department today, a slight in
crease over the number received yester
day.
Commissioner West has been assured by
the garbage company that more wagons
will be put into the collectioni service, and
it is believed that the congested cnditions
will shortly be remedied.
Bristow on Vacation.
Joseph L. Bristow, fourth assistant post
master general, left yesterday for Maine,
where he will spend the remainder of the
month. Chief Clerk Conrad will be acting
fourth assistant postmaster general during

PERSONAL TAX CONFERENCE.
Law to Be Enforced Against All De- I
linquents.
Commissioner-West held a conference this I
morning with Collector Davis and Assessor t
Darneille looking toward proceedings a
against persons who are delinquent in the f
payment of personal taxes. In view of the
fact that the law is comparatively new and 1
has been very generally complied with, no
steps have yet been taken toward distrain- t
ing the property of delinquents as author
ized by law; but, in the opinion of the offi
cials named, the time has now come when
the law should be enforced.
The statute as originally enacted was dif
ficult of enforcement, inasmuch as it di
rected the collector of taxes to bring to his
office for sale all property seized for non
payment of taxes. Many cases arose where I
it was impossible to follow out these direc
tions, one instance in particular being the i
seizure of some tugboats on the river.
The necessity for a change in the law was
made apparent to Congress, and now the
law reads that the collector shall secure
the goods and, when possible, store them in I
some safe and convenient place until they
are sold at public auction. Consequently
Collector Davis has been authorized to
confer with the District auctioneers with
the view of undertaking the sale of all
property seized for- non-payment of per- (
montal taxes. Collector Davis and Assessor
Darneille will act in harmony under direc
tion of Commissioner West in carrying the
law into effect.
"It is necessary to enforce the law," said
Commissioner West this morning, "in order
to be able to answer any questions which
may arise when the Commissioners go be
fore Congress during the next session. At
the same time, the record made by the tax
payers of the District is one which is worthy
of high praise. Of the $570,000 assessed as
personal taxes for the year 1903 only about
$10.000 is now outstanding, while the re
ceipts for the fiscal year 1904 have already
reached the sum of $600,000, leaving only
about $40,000 or $50,000 to be collected. It
is doubtful whether any personal tax was
ever levied which met with such general
obedience and was collected with so little
friction. The proposed enforcement of the
law is a matter of justice to those who
have alregdy paid, and must also be taken '3
in order to allow the Commissioners to
present a clean record to Congress."
Decided Drop in Temperature.
A sudden change in temperature through
out the United States is noted in the offi
cial weather report for the twenty-four
hours preceding 8 a.m. today. In Wash
ington there was a fall of 14 degrees; at
Augusta, Ga., the mercury dropped .18 de
grees; Nashville, Tenn., 20 degrees; Indian
apolis, Ind.,-22 degrees. The cool wave
was also felt in the Missouri valley region
and on the Pacific slope. At Davenport,
Iowa,, the temperature dropped 24 degrees;
rat Concordia, Kan., 28 degrees; at. Willis
ton, N. D., 56 degrees; at L4wiston, Idaho,
42 degrees; Phoenix, Aria., 24 degrees;
Walia Walia, Wash., 38 degrees; Red Bluff,
Cal., 36 degrees; Fresno, Cal., 34 degreena
The weather bureau does not regard this
as very unusual, although it is somewhat
exceptional because of the large area cov
ered.

LIVINGSTON BROWNING DEAD.
Member of the Local Bat Pas*es Sud
denly Away.
Livingston Browning, who had been for
many years a member of the local bar, died
yesterday evening at 6 o'clock at his coun
try home, in Prince George's county, Md.
He had been ill only four days. Funeral
services will be held at the homestead to
morrow afternoon and interment will be
made in the burying ground on the planta
tion.
Mr. Browning's wife and five children
William L., Robert E., Andrew Johnson,
Harry M. and Anna M. Browning-survive
him. Mrs. Browning, whom he married in
1878, is a daughter of Dr. Warwick Evans
of this city.
Mr. Browning was born in this city March
15. 1847, and was one of twelve sons of the
late P. W. Browning, one of the earliest
residents of the national capital. He at
tended the 'public schools and later was
graduated from Columbian University.
Through the influence of an elder brother,
Col. William A. Browning, who was secre
tary to President Johnson, Mr. Browning
was appointed by the latter a cadet-at-large
to the West Point Military Academy.
Changing his mind about desiring a career
in the army, he resigned after remaining a
year at the academy and entered the law
department of Columbian University, from
which he was graduated at the head of his
class. He was admitted to the bar in 1867,
but -before he had established himself in
practice he was appointed private secretary
to Andrew Johnson, who had served out his
term as President and was again a senator
from Tennessee. He remained in this
capacity until the death of Mr. Johnson,
and then entered upon the practice of law
in partnership with Mr. T. A. Lambert,
a prominent attorney of this city. The
partnership was dissolved after a short
time, and Mr. Browning continued in prac
tice alone, achieving a high standing at the
bar. He retired from practice in 1888 and
went to live on the old Browning homestead
in Prince George's county.
