WOULD PROHIBIT STORAGE Propose Test Case to Hold Up Fire e scape Law Until Bevised. \ HEARING AT DISTRICT OFFICE Commissioners Advocate Modifica tion of Legislation and Will .Con sider Plan Suggested. That the District Commissioners adopt a new regulation affecting them was the unique request made this morning at a public hearing in the boardroom of the District building toy representatives of the owners of fireproof apartment houses in the District. Bates Warren and T. F. Schneider, both owners of fireproof buildings, requested that the Commissioners make a regulat.on prohibiting the storing of combustible ma terial in the basements of apartment houses. "It Is unique In my experience," de clared Commissioner Macfarland, "for a body of citizens to suggest a new regula tion which will affect them. Usually reg ulations must originate with the Com missioners." Regulation May Be Adopted. Both Commissioners Macfarland and West declared themselves in favor of such a regulation. It is probable it will be formally adopted soon. The owners of the fireproof apartment houses appeared before the District heads toask that the Commissioners appeal to Congress to amend the fire-escape so that fire escapes will not be required on fireproof structures. It was contend ed that fire escapes are unreasonable, unnecessary and a disfigurement on fire proof buildings. Mr. Macfarland's Statement. Commissioner Macfarland stated at the close of the hearing: "The Commissioners have been obliged by lack of sufficient inspectors to enforce the fire escape law gradually and, of course, applied It to the non-fireproof buildings first. Now they are coming to the end of the list of non-fireproof build ings and sending out notices as to fire proof buildings. They could not suspend the lctw? -Meantime they have approved a propo sition to amend the law so as to give them discretion as to applying It to fire proof buildings. "They will be willing to advocate that amendment before the committees of Con srress "They will consider the proposition made to make a test case by Injunction and suspend action until the test case was decided." Proceedings at Hearing. Commissioner Macfarland at the hear ing explained that the Commissioners had advocated before Congress an amend ment to the fire escape law leaving It to the discretion of the Commissioners whether fire escapes are needed on fire proof buildings, and that they would con tinue to advocate such a change. "But the question now Is, What are we going to do until the change in the law is made?" declared Commissioner Macfar land. In reply to the question several answers were made. On? of the owners of a fire proof apartment house contended that the Commissioners should not try to enforce the law as repards such buildings. An other suggested that an inexpensive "chain" fire escape be allowed by the Commissioners as nominal compliance with the law. . , Still another suggestion was that an in junction suit should be brought in the courts by one of the owners of fire proot buildings and, by appeal from one court to another, hold up the enforcement of the law until Congress took some acUon. The suggestion of a regulation prohibit ing the storing of combustible material in the basements of apartment houses was also made in that connection. It was argued, as that is the only source of danger In* a fire proof apartment, the regulation would, If enforced, amply pro vide against disastrous fires in any of them. BIG SUM FOR CHURCH. Appeal by Rev. R. H. McXim Re sults in Gift of $20,000. Epiphany Church, responding to an ap peal by Rev. Dr. Randolph H. .^cKlm, made an offering Easter Sunday that reaches a new mark In the parish. Dr. McKlm had asked the church to celebrate the beginning of his twenty-first year of service in the parish by contributing $20,000 to the endowment fund. The ac tual amount In cash and pledges re ceived was $19,700. The three hundred dollars needed to make up the even sum asked for will be forthcoming with in a few days. It is the largest con tribution in the history of the church. For the Easter service at Epiphany the church was crowded, some of the congregation finding It necessary to look for seats In the Sunday school room, at the early and midday celebration in the church and in the chapel more than 700 persons received communion. At the Sunday school Easter festival the church was again filled. An orchestra assisted the choir. Bishop Harding confirmed fifty-two persons Palm Sunday in Epiphany Church and nineteen in the chapel the previous Friday, making more than 1,700 persons presented for confirmation by Dr. McKlm. PRESENT HANDBOOK CASE. Police Prefer Charge Against Clif ford E. Harrison. Accused of violating? the code of law of the District of Columbia by making a handbook on horse races, Clifford E. Harrison, a printer employed in the Hutchins building. 10th and D streets, en tered a plea of not guilty today before1 Judge Mullowny of the Police Court and demanded a trial by Jury. Bond In the sum of $1,000 was filed by the court. It was stated the defendant would probably furnish the neoessary surety this after noon. The arrest of Harrison was made about 3:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon, the police say, immediately after he ac cepted two bets from "a stool pigeon" on the races at Oakland, Cal. For the last month or six weeks, ac cording to the police, Harrison had been suspected of running a handbook. Sergt. Lehman and Policeman Howes of the first precinct procured the services of a man unknown to Harrison. Providing the man with $4 in marked bills, the police instructed him to place at least two bets. Immediately after the bets were made and before the defendant had sufficient time to conceal the entry slips, it is charged, the arrest was made. The case Is the first to be filed in the POllce Court for several months. Loving Cup for William N. Compton A silver loving cup was presented last Saturday to William N.

One of the most notable events In local merchandising occurred yesterday when Goldenberg bought the entire stock of the J. G. Pattee Company of 1331 G street at a figure representing about half origi nal cost. The J. G. Pattee Company car ried an exclusive stock of high-grade gar ments for women and misses, comprising tailored suits, costumes, silk dresses. lln? gerie frocks, separate skirts, lace coats, raincoats and other lines usually found in a specialty store of this kind. The majority of Washington women are thoroughly familiar with the high character and desirability of the mer chandise sold by the Pattee establish ment, whose reputation for showing the most distinctive and exclusive styles in women's ready-to-wear apparel brought it the patronage of the moat particular buyers in the city. The opportunity to buy goods of the finest quality at savings of one-half and more than one-half should arouse extra ordinary interest among Washington women. Certainly the offering of big bargains in women's suits, summer dresses and frocks Is most opportune, for many women are planning to buy new spring and summer apparel, and the economies provided by Goldenberg's sale of the Pattee stock should appeal to all women of discriminating taste and shrewdness. Another point worth emphasising Is the fact that the Pattee stock Is entirely new and fresh, the Arm having been In busi ness only a short time. The styles are jtrictly new and up-to-date, all the gar ments having been bought for this sea son's trade. Many of the garments are advance styles for summer wear, espe cially the lines of lingerie frocks and silk dresses. The entire Pattee stock is being ar ranged and marked for the sale, which will start Thursday morning at Golden* Serg's, 7th and K streets. Full details of the bargains will a#? >ear In tomorrow's 8tar.
