Representatives Of he granite cutteri
of the United States aiirs g1inted a hear.
ing before the Distfct Commissionere
this morning relative to the kind of stone
to be used in the cenArictif of the new
municipal buildipg.- The granite cutter.
were represented by James Duncan, J. J
Crowley and William Silver.
Mr. Duncan was spokesmaa for the
union representatives, and Commissionei
Macfarland and Acting Commissionen
Harding seemed #reatly interested in hig
clear and intelligent -presentation of the
matters urged by the granite cutters.
Mr. Duncan said that the granite cut.
ters prefer that the stone be cut in Wash
ington, but that the principal object of
their asking for a hearing was to urge
the District building commission to con
struct the new home of the District gov.
ernment out of a light-colored granite
The union, he said, while preferring thai
the stone be cut in Washington, so as tc
give the local cutters work, yet is more
greatly interested in the specific kind of
stone to be used in the structure.
Styles in building, said Mr. Duncan,
have been changed within recent years,
and architects are decidedly in favor of
granite rather than marble as a building
stone. Granite, he said, is more durable,
presents a more monumental appearance,
is better to handle, and for all building
purposes, he said, it is the ideal stone.
Within late years, said Mr. Duncan, light
colored granite has come into favor as a
stone for immense buildings. As a conse
quence white granite quarries are being
opened up and a fine grade and quality of
stone is being taken out. For the new
District building the speaker considered
that a white granite would be ideal and
would give adequate and accurate ex
pression to the architecture of the build
Priendly Relations Maintained.
Mr. Duncan went on to say that the
granite cutters' union has always sustained
most friendly relations with the quarries
and that if granite is used there will be no
probability whatever of strikes or lock
outs and the delay consequent to such oc
currences. The granite cutters, he said, at
the beginning of each large contract for
stone cutting enter into agreements with
the quarries covering the period necessary
for getting out and cutting the stone.
Under these agreements, he said, the work
is carried on and there is no friction be
tween the cutters and the owners of the
Mr. Duncan gave a description of build
ing stones in most common use, and com
pared the relative merits of each with gran
ite to the advantage of the latter stone.
At the close of the hearing Commissioner
Macfarland mentioned that the selection of
stone for the new District building, as well
as all other matters relating to its con
struction, are in the hands of the District
building commission, consisting of the three
Commissioners and Secretary Shaw of the
treasury. He said, however, that he was
greatly interested in the arguments present
ed by Mr. Duncan, ad that he would lay
the matter before the commission at the
earliest date practicable.
Commissioner Macfarland said further
that personally he is very much in favor of
constructing The new municipal building out
of a white granite of .a quality similar to
that to be used in the new union sta
Margaret D. Walton Alleges Injury to
Property Amounting to $1,000.
Margaret D. Walton has priesented to the
District Commissioners a claim for $1,000
for alleged injury to her business at 444 1st
street northeast, by reason of the removal
of the sidewalk In frgn1 bf her premises.
In a report on the matter Assistant En
gineer W. P. Richards states that Mrs.
Walton is not the owner of the property
known as 444 1st street, but has possession
of the premises as a monthly tenant. The
agents of the property, Mr. Richards states,
as well as the tenant, were given verbal
notice by himself about one month ago that
the conditions in the block would soon be
such as to make it advisable for the tenant
to seek another locatio,n for her store.
Mr. Richards is of the opinion that as a
matter of equity there seems to be no dam-.
age to the tenant's business. He mentions
that there is no money appropriated to pay
for any damages to business nor any law
covering Mrs. Walton's case through which
damages can be claimed, as all dam-ages
resulting from changes of grade are stated
to be "damages to adjacent property."
This report has been approv,:d by Capt.
Chester Harding, acting Engineer Commxis
sioner, and the writer will be iformed in
accordance therewith. The alleged dam
ages have been occasioned by reason of the
work on the union terminal project.
Jury Hears Evidence in Condemnation
A jury, composed of George W. Moss,
Percy S. Foster, Nicholas H. Shea, -James
B. McLaughlin, Philip F. Larner, Louis
Behrens and Frank B. Metzerott, heard evi
dence in the room of Circuit Court No. 1,
city hall, today, touching the value of land
to be taken for the extension of 23d street
from S street to California avenue, with a
uniform width of fifty feet.
The law under which the proceedings for
the condemnation of the land necessary for
the extension were instituted provides that
the entire amount of the damages shall be
assessed by the jury as benefits against ad
jacent property.
Assistant Corporation Counsel A. Left
wich Sinclair conducted the proceedings on
behalf of the District Commissioners, while
Attorneys Benjamin F. Leighton and Cor

Indignation marked the proceedings of
the Central Labor Union at its meeting
last night. This condition was caused by
serious charges which had been made
against prominent pembers of the central
body and given widespread circulation In
the Brauer Zeitung, a paper published at
Cincinnati In the interest of the broWing
industry. The members in question, no
names being mentioned, are charged with
being "grafters," the idsinuation being that
they received bribes from the Brewers'
Association of this city in connection with
the recent strike of firemen at the Heurich
brewery plant.
Secretary Prebstle of the National Brew
ery Workers' Association was mentioned as
the author of the objectionable article.
A counter-charge was made last night by
a delegate to the Central Labor Union that
a certain representative of the brewery m
terests was offered $25,000 if he would have
the brewery workers, drivers and other
employes at Heurich's brewery called out
during the late firemen's strike, thus com
pletely tying up the plant and compelling
the Heurich company to join the local
brewers' association, or to "combine," as
it was termed by the Heurich adherents.
Unwilling to rest under the accusations
made against its members, the Central
Labor Union last night adopted a resolu
tion calling upon Secretary Prebstle and
other officers of the National Brewery
Workers' Association to furnish the names
of the members of the central body who
are alleged to have received money during
the firemen's strike here, in order that the
matter may be taken before the courts for
An amendment to have an investigating
committee appointed by the central body
failed of passage. The members the article
In the Zeitung was supposed to refer to
courted the fullest investigation, and one
of them is said to have offered the resolu
tion of inquiry.
A Delegate's View.
"Our members are justly Indignant," said
a delegate today, "as the charges involve
the good name and Integrity of the central
body. Some of pur leading members have
been advertised broadcast as 'grafters' and
bribe takers, and we propose to probe the
matter to Its center."
"The fact that the Central Labor Union
declined to indorse the firemen's strike at
Heurich's brewery," said another dele
gate, "is prima facie evidence that neither
this body nor any considerable number of
its members were influenced by money or
any other consideration."
The matter was brought before the Cen
tral Union last night by the statement of a
delegate that the executive committee of
the International Brotherhood of Station
ary Firemen had not sanctioned the strike
at the Heurich brewery.
This caused the supporters of the firemen
to enter a vigorous protest and to assert
that the strike was sanctioned by the Inter
national body.
An excited delegate arose after the cor
ruption charges had been stated and ex
"In God's name, if we are to be ruled by
such papers as this. let Parry and his men
take control of us."
The Central Labor Union also took cogni
zance last night of the statement that it
had failed to have representatives present
yesterday at the opening session of the in
ternational firemen's convention. It was 1
explained that the failure of the organiza
tion was due to an oversight on the p>art of
the local firemen's union in failing to offi
cially notify the central body of the hold
ing of the convention. Oil was poured on s
the troubled waters by the adoption of res- I
olutions welcoming the firemen to Wash- s
ington and wishing them Godspeed in their 1
convention work. 1
Another stir was caused at the meeting
when certain bills incurred by the Council
of Allied Building Trades were referred
back to that body for investigation. a
Trouble With the Bakers.
It is probable that the matter of contract
between the local Bakers and Confection
ers' Union and the Employing Bakers' As- c
sociation, which has been pending for sev- a
eral months, will be submitted to the em
ployers in the shape of an ultimatum,
within the next week. e
The matter, It Is said, Is in the hands of t
the committee on grievances of the Central a
Labor Union, who will endeavor to secure
an agreement satisfactory to all concerned.
The journeymen bakers, it is said, will p
consent to leave the matter of employment 2
of workmen an open question, or submit n
the determination to arbitration. This
question, it Is stated, is the principal cause
of contention between ,the employers' as- c
sociation and the journeymen. A
Menibers of the union assert that the I
conditions that prevail in a local bakery,
controlled by a firm belonging to the
bakers' association, have retarded negotia- 2
tions with the employers, as the terms of t
the contract submitted, provide against -a
such conditions The bakers complain that 'J
in the establishment referred to the ma- '
chine work Is done by laborers at a wage I
of $8 a week, when the general rule Is that S
bakers shall be employed at such work at
the prevailing journeyman 'bakers' wages.
The difference between the severai local a
carpenters' unions and the Aalled Council of I
Building Trades, which several months ago a
resulted in the expulsion of the carpenters
from the council and the Central Labor
Union, will be inquired into by a committee 3
of the central body and an endeavor will
be made to bring about a reconciliation.
This course was determined at the meet
ing of the Central Labor Union last night,
when the organization committee of the
body was directed to adjust the differences, ~
If possible, and have the several organisa
tions of carpenters again affiliate with the
council of building trades,
It Is said the predominant sentiment of
local labor favors a restoration of the
friendly conditions in the building tradest
which existed prior to the beginning of the
trouble which resulted in the expulsion of
the carpenters' unions from the council, and h
that many of those immediately interesteda
desire an adjustment of the differences and h

When we shall meet In paradise.
