Commissioner West Favors Enactment
of a Law.
* The hearty support of the Commissioners
to the proposal to secure the enactment
of a law by Congress at the next
session which will require the examination
- and licensing of master builders in the
District seems assured. Maj. Morrow has
expressed himself on numerous occasions
as favoring such a law? and today Commissioner
.West made a statement in
which he voiced unqualified approval of
the proposition.
f "No one in the District of Columbia can
practice law, medicine or dentistry, nor
c can any one assume charge of a steam
f boiler or engine without undergoing ex5
amlnation to demonstrate his fitness for
, the performance of his responsible duties."
Mr. West said. "At the present
1 time any one can take out a building per
mlt, and no authority is vested anywhere
v for an investigation of the expertness or
ability of the person to undertake the
, work for which the permit Is issued.
There is no question that the public would
- ue iiiucii oener saieguaruea u licenses
z were issued r?nly to builders wiio can
prove their ability and who can be held
? responsible in ample scuri'y for the
e i faithful performance of all work in co-n
pliance with the District building regula,
"The only objection ever raised to the
- proposition came from persons who said
e they could not pay the annual license fee
of $25 or furnish proper bond, and who
claim that licensed builders would form a
trust, which would des.roy competition
c and result in higher pric.s. It does not
e seem to me that this objection Is well
founded, and personally I believe that if i
only competent builders were licensed and
- were subject to the revocation of their
- licenses in event that they were proved
i! unworthy or incompetent the situation in
, the District of Columbia would be greatly
( Improved. The number of licensed build'
ers would always be large enough to secure
active competition. It is all the more
essential that the District should have a
1 law of this character, because it is hardly
likely that Congress will provide a force
of building inspectors sufficiently, adequate
to give constant supervision of construction

1 Held for the Orand Jury on RobJ
bery Charge.
Clarence B. Hill, alias Smith, who has
been in custody for the past week or more
on two charges of housebreaking, waived
f his right to his preliminary examination in
the Police Court today, and was held in
toOO bond on each charge for the action of
- the grand jury. In default of the neces1
sary security* the defendant was re*
manded to prison pending further dispoe
; sition of the ease
s The defendant, who is known under at j
t least a dozen different assumed names,
was arrested by Detectives Parhain and
O'Brien of the centra! office upon tiie <fomJ
plaint of a guest In one of the lower Pennsylvania
avenue hotels that he had been
_ robbed of money and jewelry. Consequent
q: Investigation, so the police say. has indicated
that Hill 1b sm expert hotel thief,
[. and has been responsible for no less than
,# seven different hotel robberies in this city
n in the past month and a half. In addition
. to the charges filed against Hill this
.. morning, it is stated, there will in all
probability be several others by the time
e the first cases are brought to the atteution
of the grand jury.
~ Colored Man at Bladensburg
Charged With Attempted Assault.
William H. Thompson, a colored man
twenty-eight years old, was charged at
Bladensburg tills morning with at*
tempting tfc assault Mrs. Ellen Hodges,
a young white woman of that place.
While on her way to visit a neighbor,
Mrs. Hodges testified, she was accosted
by Thompson. Becoming frightened, she
turned and ran up the road to her own
home, where she fainted from fright.
During the testimony the defendant
gave a very straightforward story, but
as ddhbt remained in the mind of th?
justice of the peace he was held for the
action of the grand jury in $500t It
is understood that friends of the accused
will probably obtain security.
Stole Harness?Now In Jail.
Daniel Alston, colored, arrested several
days ago by Detective Johnson of the
ninth precinct, was adjudged guilty this
morning of the larceny of a set of harness
valued at $34 from Chester A. Scala.
who conducts a feed stable at the inter
section of 12th and C streets northeast,
and in default of $20 fine was committed
to jail for twof months.
r Held on Charges of Theft. 1
Daniel Nolan and Joseph Truman, ret
cently arrested by Policeman Donovan of
i the fourth precinct charged with breaking
5 into the Norris warehouse on the water
front about a month ago and stealing
t two propellers valued at $U0. waived their
i right to a preliminary hearing before
* Judge Kimball of the Police Court this
i morning on the technical charge of house>
breaking and were held in *1.500 bond
r each for the action of the grand jury.
? Both defendants admitted the charge
against them.

taking down the old pieces of sandstone 3
will go right along from today. *
The great derrick that will lift the
granite pieces worked well today, and
the contractors think that everything i
will proceed smoothly front now on. The o
stonework has heon unhlwt to V. Woacher
of Philadelphia, who is represented by
W. H. Gaskins. The first pieces taken n
off today were the ornamental affairs e
on the balustrade above the portico. >
Within a day or so the sandstone pll- b
lars will be down. It is proposed to
take out ten of the thirty pillars at one
time, replacing them as fast as possible d
with the Holid granite pillars, which will h
weigh thirty-two tons exclusive of the I
great bases upon which they- will rest, t
Each granite base will weigh six tons,
making the total weight of the pillars
76,000 pounds. Other pieces to be put I
in will not be so heavy. h
Some of the sandstone pieces removed ?
by the contractors will be used by the E
supervising architect in other buildings e
in the city. \

Banking Interests Hope New Gov- a
ernment Policy May Bring Re- c
lief?Premier a Peace Man. f<
Special Cablegram to The Star. J
TOKIO, July 15.?The Japanese press, in
its comment upon the personnel of the
new cabinet, agrees that the new premier, j
Gen. Taro Katsura, Is by no means free g
from responsibility for the faults of his
predecessor. Marquis Saionji. This attitude
is merely a continuation of the posi- P
tlon which it took last week, maintain- (,
ing that the change in cabinets was little
more than a device to appease the popular
clamor. Editorially, the independent Jour- n
uals urge a complete abandonment of the ^
i: ? : _ a i i i
puucies in me past.
Tax System Reform.
Katsura has been quoted during the past
two days as saying that he would devote tl
his energies to the adjustment of finances
and the reformation of the tax system. P
Added force is given to this statement by
the fact that no minister of finance is to
be appointed at present, and t.ie duties of E
this office are to be administered directly
by the premier. The banking interests of j.
the country are much encouraged by this
position of the new cabinet, and are apparently
hopeful that speedy relief will .
be afforded them.
The price of Japanese securities has p
been falling steadily since March, 11K>7,
and the work of the new cabinet in the _
department of finance will be to devise c
some method of preventing further de- u
cline. *
Standpat Military Policy. s
Premier Katsura's proposals for military
and naval reduction and for "recu- w
peration rather than aggression" in for- (i
elgn affairs are regarded, according to the
press today, as having a much better J
chance of a hearing with the people at
large, owing to the fact that Katsura is ?
a member of the same clan as Prince Ya- ^
magata. who is the most powerful of the
group of elder statesmen and represents
avowedly the military seetlon of the state.
The Kokumin, which will probably be
the official organ of the new government. ?
asserts this morning that the cabinet is
"unmilitary." It continues." "Preipler
Katsura proposes neither increase nor reduction
in military and, naval establish- t,
merits. HIr nnticv will he t n m:iin?u.n
the army and navy at that point of efficiency
and sire which will be sufficient to
safeguard Japan in the maintenance of a
peace policy." ^

Camp Wine View Tenanted by Only
Two Hen Today. o
Camp Wine View will soon be a thing ft
of the past. *
But two of the striking machinists oc- ?
cupifd the tent near the railroad round- g
house today. They informed C&pt. Daley
that thpv wprp wnnoratinir nnlv Thov a
also informed him that the camp aril! be
abandoned In a day or two.
Believing that there is no longer any n
danger of trouble. Capt. Daley has withdrawn
the police guard from the vicinity 8
of the strikers' camp, and the roundhouse c
ar.d locomotives are now guarded by Capt.
William Tyser's railroad detective force.
Offlc'als of the Washington Terminal j.
Company, against whom the strike of the
machinists is directed, stated this after- _
noon that enough non-union mechanics
have reported for work to carry on the n
operations of the roundhouse, and that
so far as they are concerned the strike n
has failed in its purpose.
The striking machinists take the oppo- v
site view, and declare the "end is not
yet." and the international union will n
back them to the last.,
