DEED PLACED ON RECORD
FOR TRANSFER OF ARMORY
Building Purchased by Thomas Ridgate for Specu
lation?Plans for New Residence ?The
City Garbed in Summer Foliage.
During the week the transaction involv
ing the transfer of the title to the Na
tional Rifles' Armory, on G street be
tween 9th and 10th streets northwest, was
closed by placing on record the deed. By
this instrument the National Rifles' Hall
Association transfers to Thomas 11. Rid
gate the property in question. The con
sideration is not named, but is said to
have been about $10 per square foot,
which would make the total about $70,000.
It is stated the purchaser bought the
property for an investment. The sale
was made by the Charles Early Com
pany, real estate brokers.
A garage ho^jse is being built from
plans prepared by B. Stanley Simmons,
architect, on the rear of the lot on which
the residence of Robert N. Harper stands,
at the southeast corner of "lftth and
Church streets. It is a one-story struc
ture, and will be of a stjrle and built of
material that will brfng it in harmony*
with the general style of the- residence,
which is colonial.
Large New Residence.
The purchaser of a large building site
at the northeast corner of 16th and R
streets, Isaac T. Mann, is having plans
prepared by George O. Totten, architect,
for a residence to be erected there for his
own use. It is not the intention to oc
cupy the entire frontage with the buHd
ing, as it is over 200 feet in extent, but a
sufficient width will be taken to provide
for a house of generous proportions.
The design of the house will be that
which has come into. general use in this
city of late years, several examples of
which may be seen in the Sheridan Circle
section. The principal entrance will be
on a level with the street, and there will
be rooms on the basement floor for the
use of guests on social occasions. The
stairway will be in the center of the
house, thus leaving the full width of the
second or parlor floor available for a gen
erous sweep or succession of rooms.
The exterior will be treated in stone of
Plans of Mr. Walsh.
Early In the coming fall it is proposed
to make such changes in the building at
the northwest corner of New York ave
nue and 14th street, known as the Oxford
Hotel, as will make it better adapted as
an income producer. In order to bring
about such a result it may be that the
owner of the property, Thomas F. Walsh,
will decide to erect an entirely new struc
Both plans are under consideration, and
the details of botlj, showing their charac
ter, are to be studied by T. A. Wlcker
fliam, the representative of Mr. Walsh
in realty matters. A decision will then
be made as to the extent, and the charac
ter of the improvements.
The Spectacle of the Foliage.
The variety in the forms as well as the
grace of the massing of the foliage along
city streets and in city parks is a never
ending source of wonder and admiration.
"With every street banked, as it were,
with greenery and the vistas closed with
groupings of shrubbery and flowers, it is
not surprising that nature in its spring
garb should be the dominant element In
the Impression which the city makes. ? In
fact, the architectural form of the houses
and of buildings have but little influence
in the spectacle of the city, for these
works of man serve now. In the midst
of the luxuriance of nature, merely as
incidents, as detail* only in the composi
tion which has such charm and grace.
One walks beneath th? overspreading
and arching branches of the trees, with
the sunlight working graceful patterns
of mingled light and shade across the
pathway, and 'vet the"fe??t are nil the

lines binding the formal surface of the
paved " roadway. Above and about, as
one casts his eye. he is in the mids; of a

vistas in the woods, and yet he is in the
crowded haunts of men.
A Charming Washington Paradox.
This paradox of a city and yet the
country can only be found in Washing

surprising completeness of rural sur

The Building Inspector Problem.
The naming of Building Inspector Ash--,
ford for the position of municipal arch!- (
tect by the committee appointed by the
District Commissioners to suggest a man
to fill that recently created place points
to the possibility of a vacancy in the near
future In the office of building inspector.
Before such a change is made it might be
well, if the opinion of those who have to
do with this office in pursuit of their busi
ness has-any weight, to adopt some means
of taking off from the head of this office
some portion of the burden of the detail
It is a difficult matter to see.the build
ing Inspector, not because he is exclusive
and shuts himself up, for that is directly
the contrary to the practice pursued,- as
any one can enter his office. But it is
evident that no more than one person can
talk to him at a time, and so there ts a
long line or group of people waiting in his
office each day, and practically ail day, to
get a chance to speak to the head of the
A Center of Many Details.
As most of those who wish to see lilm
are busy, the delay is irritating, and tends
to make people have revolutionary
thoughts about their city government. to
say nothing of the loss of tima, which is
a loss of money. It is possible that other
officials in the District building, or per- j
haps in that department, could attend to
a goodly proportion of the matters person
ally presented to the building inspector,
but even allowing f<Jr that. It is still true
that a larger variety of duties devolve
upon the head of this office than ought to
be the case if the best results and the
quickest service is expected. ....
Those who ,have most to do with the
office, architects and builders, would like
to be able to attend to their business there
with as little delay a? possible, and there
is no objection to any reasonable plan
which will tend to bring about such a
result. It Is proposed that the revenue
derived from the issue of permits be in
creased, and when that is done then
Congress may be more inclined to pro
vide the additional help which the growth
of the business of the office demands.
Proposed Increase in Fees.
Instead of a tlat rate of two dollars for
a building permit, whether such a permit
authorizes the erection of a shanty or a
palace, it is proposed to tlx a scale of
rates varying with the importance and
magnitude of the proposed structure.
This would result in increasing the fee?
for building permits, but not In such a'
degree as to be burdensome.
It will certainly not be burdensome but
gladly welcomed If in consequence ad
ditional men are secured for this serv
ice. As has been pointed out by the build
ing inspector and indorsed by the Com
missioners for a good many years past,
everything about the office has grown ex
cept the force of officials.
At Rate of a Million a Year.
Fourteen years ago the total value of
the building done in that year in this
city was about four millions of dollars.
Today such figures run up to fourteen
million*. With all the increased duties,
'to say nothing of responsibilities, the
force of men who are expected to see that
the building regulations are carried out,
and to suggest Improvements in line with
the safetv of lives and of property as
well as of health, there has been during
this period an Increase of three in the

ON THE EDGE OF A RAVINE. A RETAINING WALL AS SEEN FROM
ROCK CREEK BRIDGE.
COMPROMISING WITH NATURE
IN CONSTRUCTING HOUSES
Some Ground Picturesque, But Not Regarded as
Practical?Retaining Wall of Rip-Rap?Lots
in the Air?Problem of Grades.
A building lot that lies for the most
part In the air, or. if projected on a level
with the front portion, would extend out
on the atmosphere, does not appeal to
the average builder of houses, or, in fact,
to the average occupant of houses. A
house lot needs a more substantial foun
dation than air even if a portion of It is
to be used only as a place for hanging
clothes or for the family dog < to roam
However, holding such views relative
to foundations, Kennedy Brothers bought
some time ago a tier of lots on the east
side of Woodley place, the latter being
the first street to the north after pass
ing the street railway bridge from the
city over Rock creek. They also bought
the lots on the west side of the street,
and have about completed the erection
there of eighteen three-story houses.
Some of them have already been sold
and are occupied.
Picturesque, But Not Practical.
Woodley place is parallel to Connecticut
avenue until it reaches Cathedral avenue
on the north?that is. at least, its course
on the plat books. But in fact it stopa
short just north of the last house built
on the west side. Beyond is a ravine
about forty feet deep and extending near
ly to Cathedral avenue. The ravine winds
to the east as the railway bridge is
reached, and the consequence is that the
lots on the east side of Woodley place
are mainly in the air, or rather pass
down the steep banks of the ravine at a
grade of about 80 per cent.
However, the bank is covered with
shrubbery and trees and looks pic
turesque, so that everybody but extremely
practical persons are apt to exclaim in
looking down the foliage-bedecked steep:
"What a lovely place." However, Ken
nedy Brothers thought K Would be more
lovely if the back yards were larger and
there was less embowered bank, and so
they have filled in to the limits of their
holdings, and in order that the earth
would not follow its natural impulse and
! slip off to the lower levels they have built
up against the bank of earth and above
the level of their land a stone wall;
How the Wall la Built. j
This wall is of rip-rap. construction,
which means a dry wall with stones laid
with some regard to regularity, but. of
? ourse, with no uniform line of joints.
The stones are laid with the slope of the
bank, and in consequence rest against
the bank, having a width o. about three
feet at the bottom.
The thrust of the bank is resisted by
the weight of the wall, which rests on it,
and In addition the danger of seepage of
the surface drainage has been averted
by providing for a proper <Jrain along the
top of the wall. Iron rods are also drawn
along the face of the wall at intervals,
and besides there Is at the base a foot
ing of concrete, and the same material in
the form of grouting has been forced be
tween the interstices of the stone for a
distance of several feet from the base of
More Lots in the Air.
There is a coping, or balustrade, at the
top of the wall, and where it rounds to
the west there is a curved seat of con
crete, from which a view can be had of
the ravine and the wooded slopes beyond.
The bottom of the wall, resting on the
sloping sides of the ravine, is still some
twenty feet above the level of the road
way of Cathedral avenue, which pass?s
along the border of the Zoo.
It does not so appear as tht land now
lies, but the plat book shows a tier of
lots along the west side of Cathedra'
avenue and fronting on the Zoo. No
doubt some day the building sites on
that level, which at that part Is fully
forty feet below that of the next parallel
street on the west, Woodley place, will
be occupied with residences, thus contin
uing the line of dwellings which are
now being built by Middaugh and Sr.an
non on the north end of Cati.edrai ave
nue, just before it turns from the boun
dary line of the Zoo toward the west.
Problem of Orades.
At present the southern section of the
thoroughfare does not suggest a place for
homes, and neither does that portion of
it to the south of the railway bridge.
In this latter locality there is not th*
same width of land, but the upper tier
of lots has already, been built on, or.
rather, two houses are up and -he third
is being finished und now faces the
northern approach to the new Connecti
cut avenue bridge.
There is another section of lota front
ing to the east, but tiie depth of them is
for the most part lost in tha steep de
scent of the ground to the level of Rock
creek. The adaptation of ground to
meet the requirements of the uniform J
lev*I of city streets has thus far in the
development of the eity as a rule been \
neither difficult nor expensive. . But as j
the city's advancc passes beyond the 1
fringe of hills that border the original
limits, such engineering questions arise.
Adaptation of Nature.
The broken and irregular character of
the ground of Cleveland Park has not
deterred the subdivision maker, and
what has been accomplished there in ti e
way Oif meeting the natural obstacles
to uniformity shows a disposition to
compromise with nature rather than to
subdue her to the plans of man. and. in
consequence there is a diversity in the
streets and the surroundings of lite
homes there which is attractive, but
which, of course, could not have been
done If the building had gone on lit
rows instead of detached dwellings.
In that locality are found houses over
looking the roofs of dwellings on the
next street. A couple of houses now be
ing built on Newark street had to be
supplied with sufficient ground for the
house alone by erecting on the slope or
a ravine piers of concrete and then tilling
in with earth and placing the brick piers
of the houee on the substantial footing
SCHOOL IN CANAL ZONE.
Every Town. Has American Schools
for White and Negro Pupils.
From a Colon Letter to the Xew OHchm Times
At the present time there Is a school
in every town of the Canal Zone. Thers
Is probably no place in the world where
children of so many different nationali
ties receive their Instruction in common.
In fact, this has probably been the
greatest difficulty in the work. In the
first place, the teachers come from six
teen different states. The number of
pupils In the white schools is 7SJ. of
which 330 are Americans. The.<: atter
come from thirty-nine different states
or territories, and. as each state ha.-* a
system of instruction differing more or
less from all the others, it can r< adily
be seen how difficult it has been to get
all pupils properly gradvd for the ad
vantage of all. The foreign children
attending the zone white schools number
161, and represent twenty-one national
ities. ' The remaining thlrty-on ? pupi S
never attended any schools before tney
came to the Canal Zone.
The colored schools, made from eight
een American children, are represented
by twentv-elght nationalities, it is true,
of course, that many of these so-called
nationalities are simply insular posses
sions of the different European countries
having colonies in the West Indies, but
inasmuch as the inhabitants of each is
land differ from all the others, even tu
the extent of employing different dia
lects, they can be classed as of different
nationalities. The numbtr of colored
children in attendance upon their s -p
arate schools Is 1.215. The greatest
obstacle, which will never be w.iolly
overcome, is the constant moving to
and fro on the Isthmus. In the first
place, the population here is naturally
shifting, the numbers of those leaving
the isthmus being nearly as peat as
those coming. In addition, there is a con
tinual changing of employes from one
point to another, as necessity demands.

To move an army of fifty or a hundred

entirely feasible, and emergencies are
