EXCISE BOARD BILL PUBLIC HEARING TO BE OIVEN ON ITS PROVISIONS. Public Interest in the Measure? Those for and Against Change to Be Heard. i So much Interest has been manifested re cently for and against the proposal to change the form of the excise board of the District of Columbia, as provided by Sen ate bill 4341'. which Is now befow the Com missioners for report, that Commissioner Macfariand, president of the board, an nounced this morning that a public hear ing wouid be given by the Commissioners before a report is made upon the measure. At that time, which will be on a date to be | fixed by the secretary of the board, those in favor of a continuance of the present j excise board, as well as those who favor a board made up as proposed by the Hans brough bill, will be given an opportunity to state their views. Since the bill was Introduced in the Sen ate and referred by the District committee of that body to the Commissioners for anal ysis, the "fight" iias been at closer quar ters and the Commissioners have received numerous petitions in championship of each side. Last week; as was at that time stated in The Star, the Anti-Sa!oon I.eague took up cudgels in favor of the Hansbrough bill, and to their published letter Chairman Darneille of the excise board took strenuous exception, stating that it was much in the nature of a reflection upon the integrity of members of the board. Chairman Blake more of the legislative committee of the Anti-Saloon League replied to this, claim ing that the league meant no reflection upon the personnel of the excise board, but added that If the excise board wished to prove innocence of the allegations made against it the members of the Anti-Saloon League would be g!ad to afford the board that opportunity. Exceptions Taken. The controversy was practically carried back to first causes yesterday afternoon In a communication received by the Commis sioners from Davidson & Davidson. They took exception to the statement made by the excise boord that the present method of dealing with applications for liquor li censes is in tlie nature of local option In that It places the power In the majority 01 property holders in any neighborhood to defeat the issue of a license. As a case In point, Davidson & Davidson cited the recent renewal of a license to John B. Buckley for his saloon at the corner of 19th and '1 streets northwest, and- In connection with this case they declared: '"This saloon has been recently granted a license In spite of the vigorous protest of practically all of the property owners and residents on 19th street between S and T streets and the majority of the owners of property on both sides of T street be tween lbth and 19th streets including In the latter persons who have within the past three years expended nearly half a million dollars In taxable improvements." Another Instance Cited. Only a few days ago another protest was made, It is alleged, against the transfer of a wholesale liquor license for the establish ment at the corner of 9th and R streets, but the Hcense was granted by the board to Herbert Guggenheim, who succeeded William L. Hayes in the business. When Hayes applied for a renewal of his license at the beginning of the license year there was a great protest, but the excise board considered that the stand had been so long established that It was entitled to the re issue of a license. It was authoritatively stated for the excise board this morning that, under the law. saloons, both whole sale and retail, which were established be fore the passage of the act, or were es tablished before the construction of a school building in their immediate vicinity, were permitted to continue business with out regard to their proximity to such an Institution. The board, however, would not consent to the establishment of a new liquor store within less than 400 feet of a school building. In speaking of the controversy over the renewal of the Hayes wholesale license for the year beginning November 1. 1905, Rev. Carl G. Doney, pastor of the Hamllne M. E. Church, who was one of the most ener getic protestants, said: "When one considers the action of the excise board in rellcenslng the wholesale liquor place at the corner of 9th and R streets northwest he surely may be par doned if certain inquiries suggest them selves. "This store Is In a residence district and Is diagonally across the street from one of the three entrances to the new Business High School. At the hearing of the case before the board of excise remonstrating petitions were presented from the official boards of Hamllne and Grace M. E. Churches, from practically all of the house keeping residents of the section and from a majority of the property owners who could be found. This is the (list liquor store on Stth street, reckoning from the north end, the Soldiers' Home mile limit forbidding any further north, and to it is tributary the whole district lying to the north and northwest. It was shown by residents who live within sight of the store that enormous quantities of liquor are car ried away In buckets; that children of ten, twelve and fifteen years come to the store carrying buckets; that liquor was drunk on the pavement and on the street in front of the place; that teamsters would stop, get a bucket of liquor and drink It from their standing wagons, and that boxes and barrels were left for hours piled upon the sidewalk. Interests Represented. "Ten leading men and three representa tive women appeared at the hearing to protest against the license. The Interests of church, school, property and residents were presented. Mr. O. W. F. Swartzell ap pealed on behalf of the churcliea and o! Iiamiine's parsonage, located within fifty yards of the place; President Gordon of the board of education besought the removal of the store because of .its close proximity to the Business High School, where thou sands of our boys and girls are educated; others spoke for their property and resi dential protection, for good morals and the st.fety of the community. "If, in the face of protests and petitions such as these, licensee are granted or re newed, one is constrained to believe either that the liquor laws of the District of Co lumbia are shamefully inadequate to pro tect or that the wishes of the people are without weight. In either ease it is high time that a remedial change be procured." Mr. Albertsen Ooes to New York. Edward Ridge ly, who has been national bank examiner In the city of Now York for several years, has resigned to engage In the bond and commercial paper business under the firm name or Rldgeiy & Norrle, New York city. Walter l<\ Albertsen, wno has for several years been bank examiner for the District of Columbia, i*oa been transferred and assigned to duty In New York^ city as Mr. Rldgely's successor, and J. W.
