REPAIRING AQUEDUCT BRIDGE.
Conditions More Favorable for Com

According to the engineer officer in charge
t of the work of reconstructing pier No. 5 of
the Aqueduct bridge, more visible progress
- was made last month by the contractors,the
Penn Bridge Co., than during any similar
period since the work began. At the be
glnning of the month, he says, p'umping. out
of the cofferdam was commenced, after the
repair of the serious break in the dam,
which had been the cause of about a
month's delay in the work. Pumping was
continued steadily and early in the month
the bottom of the river was uncovered. No
leaks of any consequence have developed
since and by the local treatment of small
inlows through the sheeting with ashes
or stone screenings the total leakage has
been reduced to an insignificant amount
for an inclosure of the size of this dam.

the chair. There was a discussion as to
the site for the democratic banner that it

it was decided that Harrison street near
Monroe was considered the best point. It
'was decided that music should be em
ployed at future meetings of the or

P arrangements were authorized entered

purpose. A motion was adopted directing
the officers to communicate with Judge

at an expense of $245.000. In addition to
the various offices being located in this
structure, quarters are also provided there
for officers of the hospital.

a series of joint discussions with the late

will you do if the democratic convention
decides against you?' Mr. Smith and
Judge Crisp and their respective follow
er's unhesitatingly declared that they
would take their medicine as gracefully
as they could and support the -nominee
and the platform of the convention.
Free coinage was approved and Mr.
Bryan was nominated. In keeping with
his pledge. Mr. Hoker Smith supported the
nominee and the platform. He could not
under the circumstances do otherwise.
Having to support Mr. Bryan and a plat
form that favored free coinage and criti
cised the Cleveland administration, he re
signed from Mr. Cleveland's cabinet-as
any other self-respecting man would
have done under like circumstances. His
position was perfectly understood and
appreciated by Mr. Cleveland a'nd every
member of the cabinet; and the closeness
of his friendship with the President and
the cabinet was in no measure dimin
ished. He publicly supported Mr. Bryan
on the Chicago platform, but prefaced
that support with the distinct reaffirma
tion of his belief in the gold standard
and his opposition to silver. He maintained
that other issues involved-such as the
tariff and the always appalling negro
question-made it wise for Georgia and
the south to support the ticket in spite of
the objections to it. And in the position
which the democracy took at St. Louis he
has as good right as any other member of
the Cleveland regime to feel personal
pride and vindication.
Mr. Hoke Smith has since early man
hood shown keen interest in Georgia poli
tics and advocated the principles he
thought would conserve the general
good. He has nevee-ben a candidate for
any political office; the only one he
ever held was that. of Secretary of the
Interior. He has been a leader in educa
tional matters; he has borne his full
share in local charities, he has been a
conspicuous sucess im his profession of
the law; he has avedated the interests
of the masses of the peple in every pub
lic controversy; and lia has always been
noted as a fearlesi aggressive factor in
every movement i which he has taken
part. It seems to te that the New York
democracy were -ratihstl fortunate in their
selection of a sottbetlh orator for their
opening rally. CLaAUDIE N. BENNETT.

ALLEGED SQUATTERS ABSENT.
Result of the Recent Orders Affecting
Buyers at the Center market this morn
ing noticed that several, familiar faces
along the line of countrymen and hucksters,
on the south side of I street between 7th
and 12th streets, were missing. The absent
ones had been forced to leave there because
of the fight that is being waged against
them by the police for alleged illegal occu
pation of the street and sidewalk. Detec
tive Watson and Marketmaster Rice have
filed informations in the Police Court
against twenty alleged violators of the law,
and, as heretofore stated, the cases are set
for trial Monday.
Major Sylvester has taken an active in
terest in the matter of getting rid of the
so-called squatters, and in a report made
last year respecting them, he said:
The space allotted farmers who sell pro
duce of their own raising in the vicinity of
the market houses has become insufficient
to accommodate the many teams. It is ad
mitted that a number who are not farmers
take advantage of the legitimate producer
by occtpying stands en these spaces, but
the ruling-of the court makes it necessary
that the person so vending' should be ebr
served in making a purchase and sale of
the produce: in- order ; Lo. effect. conviction,
which it is difficult to accomplish with a
limited police force.
This impostor, who is familiarly known
as a "forestaller of the market." sells in
ferior products to the consumer, wherein
also arises a question of health. If the su
perintendents of the markets were required
to assign space to the honest farmer only,
it would do away with much of the cause
for complaint, and be an advantage to
those who must purchase from these
classes from day to day.
The growth of the city has been in excess
of the facilities afforded in and around the
market houses for the display and sale of
products, and sooner or later it will de
volve upon the District to make changes
whereby accommodations may be had, not
only by those who sell, but for those who

THE SPEED LAW.
Alleged Violations Brought to Atten
tion of Police Court.
VIolating the speed law with an electric
delivery wagon was the charge upon which
Charles W. Haslam was arraigned in the
police court this morning. The defendant
entered a plea of guilty and said he de
sired to reserve the right to make a state
ment. The complaint against him was that
his horseless vehicle attained a speed of
more than seventeen miles an hour on
Pennsylvania avenue' near 17th street yes
terday. Mr. Haslam said that the vehicle
had been tested and that it could no .go
faster than twelve miles an hour. His per
sonal bonds were taken.
Another defendant in a case Involving an
alleged violation of the speed law was a
colored man named George Lee. He rode a
bicycle at the rate of abqut sixteen miles an
hour. At the time of his arrest he was on
his way to the house of a doctor who was
wanted to attend a young man who had
been taken suddenly ill. Judge O'Neal made
no comments upon the case, but merely
said: "Personal bonds."

The measures taken within the past few

has complied with. There are now about
seventy teams and wagons in service, four
more than the largest number employed
Additional service has been ordered, and
it is hoped that by Monday the arrears will
be cleaned up. The company is now taking
away from Washington twenty tons of
garbage a day more than on any day last
summer. It is endeavoring to get around
the railway transportation difficulties by
utilizing box cars, as well as the flat cars,
for which the garbage tanks are made.

PUBLIC PLAY GROUNDS.
Interest in the Work of Preparing
Amusement, for Children.
Early in the present summer five vacant
lots, with apparatus for having a good
time, varying in quantity and quality ac
cording to the location of the ground, were
loaned temporarily for play grounds for the
children of Washington, and improvements
had been made upon them, but play
grounds of the ideal kind had not been
The play grounds committee assembled
early in the spring in the general office of
the Associated Charities to make plans for
immediate work, and scarcely a month
passed before arrangements were made to
clear ten or twelve lots, erect such appara
tus as might be in keeping with the hopes
of those who kne* the work; and for the
employmept of a supervisor who should
prepore grounds anew and supervise vol
unter teachers and helpers in all parts of
the city. This was the beginning of a
work of philanthropy.
A number of months have passed since
these plans were made and time has proved
the wisdom of the early action. Eleven
lots have been cleared, heavy and well
constructed gymnasium apparatus has
been erected, base ball, volley and basket
ball courts have been laid out, and sand
boxes, with awnings for cover, have been
placed for the smaller children. Everything
is gradually being done-as the funds in
hand permit-for the comfort and pleasure
of the little ones of all ages.
Prof. A. U. Craig of the Armstrong Nor
mal Training School. who is a member of
the committee, realized the need of some
one to supervise the clearing, leveling and
equipping of grounds, the regular supervisor
not having time to prepare the grounds and
train volunteers, and without waiting for
the commitee to act, he volunteered to take
tip this work and carry it through to com
pletion. The report is now made by Mr.
Craig that all plans have been executed
and that eleven play grounds are ready for
With the real play grounds and proper
equipurent it has not been necessary to
search for children. The grounds in the
rear of Neighborhood House, only about
25x00) feet. frequently hold a party of hap
py youngsters numbering 125. In the hot
hours of the day dozens of boys and girls
may be seen upon the chute and parallel
bars and dozens more in the sand boxes,
while in the evening hours the party in
creases to about two or three hundred. Fre
quently the regular class at each ground
is so large that it is necessary to divide
responsibility and set many volunteers at
work as instructors.
League spirit and the desire to uphold
division dignity has been awakened. There
is -a southwest club, a southeast club and
many others. These clubs contest at base
ball, basket ball and other games, and the
enthusiasm of the participants increases
