Shoemaker each Introduced reso utions relating to the subject, both of which were adopted. Mr. Shoemaker's esolution recited that taxation has increas' d greatly in the District in recent years without a corresponding evidence of actual ncrease in values; that a great deal of property has been exempted from taxation; that great need exists for the improvement f public thoroughfares outside the old city imits and that many people are suffering or sewers, water mains and lighting fa :ilities. In view of this condition of af !airs there is great necessity, the resolution leclared, for the arrangement of the Dis trict's finances on a suitable basis, ad rances from the treasury to be paid in a iumber of years. Bila Whish rlee. George S. Simmons, chairman of the com mittee on streets and alleys, asked the as ociation to urge Congress to pass several ills held over from the last session. The iills mentioned were those for the abate ment of nuisances, regulating minor streets and alleys, establishing building lines in he county and remedying sanitary condi ions. The matter was referred to the ommittee on laws and legislation. The question of the renaming of the thor ughfare connecting the Soldiers' Home ith Rock Creek Park was the subject of , discussion. The thoroughfare, it is ta is now designated by three names Whitney avenue, Park avenue and Lowell treet. It was urged that the whole street e designated as Park avenue. A resolution to this effect met wifli some Vposition, as it was stated that the reso ation might needlessly antagonize the Com missioners in the matter, as .It was under tood the authorities have already decided to ame the thoroughfare Irving street, in ac ordance with their alphabetical system. Those In favor of the adoption of the res lution argued that the street is not an rdinary east and west thoroughfare, but hat it is entitled to the name of avenue, nd an exception should be made In the 70mmissioners' plan. The resolution was nally adopted. Poles on Columbia Boad. Secretary Todd read a communication rom the Commissioners stating that it is upracticable at present to remove the tele raph and telephone poles on Columbia oad. One member of the association de ired to know what the Commissioners leant by the word "impracticable,"~and it ras suggested that the secretary ascertain he meaning of the word as used in the ommissloners' communlce tion. The mat ar was referred to the committee on tele hone poles. It was stated that since the membership f the association is rapidly increasing, ar angements will likely be made for occa lonal social entertainments in the future. 'he new members elected last evening were s follows: Col. W. H. Crook, H. I.Apple, B. Caldwell, Henry W. Coffin, ouis C. Vitkowski, Charles Schneider and Carl C. kueller.
