Preliminary steps have been taken by the Navy Department for the execution of that provision of the naval appropriation bill providing for the removal of the present track connection with the Washington navy yard and the construction of a new track connection along the Anacostia river. In accordance with the I provisions of the act of Congress, Judge Butler, solicitor of the navy, has entered into correspondence with the Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington Railroad Company and M. I. Weller, agent of the owners of the land along the water front of the Anaoostla river on which the new track connection le to be constructed. This correspondence hae in view the acquirement by the government of all the private property comprised within the right of way granted the railroad company for the necessary track construction. Company to Pay Cost. Under the act the railroad company s to construct and operate, at its own expense, a sufficient and satisfactory rack connection, with such turnouts and ridings as may he deemed necessary, 'rem a point on the main line of the Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington ailroad, in the general vicinity of square south of square 1080, and of ending along the Anacostia water front o the present track system of the Washington navy yard, in the vicinity of the ;aet line of 9th street southeast. So ar as may be consistent with the pubic interest the new track connection B to bo constructed on "public grounds, Sace and streets of the United States." le Secretary of the Navy Is directed o acquire any part of the land necesary for yardage or right of way by purchase or condemnation, and to contract the connection, side tracks, turnuts and switches necessary to tbe roper operation of the yard system. For hat purpose the sum of $190,000 is ap- j ropriated. ~ It is provided that the new track con- lection shall be constructed wholly on a ight of way provided by the United I itates, "the title to which shall at all I imes remain in the United States." The I ailroad company is required to begin | he construction of the new track conlection within two months after the lecessary right of way shall have been rovided and to pilt the track connection l n operation within fifteen months from ' he beginning of its construction. It is rovided by the act that the railroad ompaay shall not be required to exend more than $92,500 in constructing he new connection. The acttial location f the new line with respect to the north r ulkhead line of the river is subject to i he approval of the District Commtsioners. Two Tsars' Work Ahead. / It is roughly estimated that it will reulre about two years' time to acquire he fight of way and construct the necesary trackage, in accordance with the rovlsions of the act. In the meantime ne railroad company is authorised to ontinue the operation of Its present track b onnectton with the Washington navy p ard OP K street, from the junction of rirginia and New Jersey avenues, under D egulations to be established by the Dls- u rlct Commissioners. ir The railroad company is required to p move entirely the existing track conection, and to repair the streets over _ rhlch it 18 laid to the satisfaction of the 11 >cal authorities. That work is to be S< ne at the expense of the railroad com- n any, and within thirty days after the .? ompletlon of the new spur along the inacostia river. w I0NFER ON RECLAMATION j tc iii i a1 'RESIDENT AND XR. BALUX- m OER TAKE TO MATTER. * hi Removal of F. H. Newell as Head u of Senrioe Is Considered u Probable. n, BEVERLY, Mass., July 8.?The reoriniaaUon of the reclamation service was ai iscussed at a conference between Presl- s? ent Taft and Secretary of the Interior dl alllnger at a three-hour conference yes- Q' srday afternoon. Although no official d iformatlon could be obtained, it is freely w sported in Beverly that the future b lane for reclamation work do not in- tl lude the retention of Frederick H. New11 as the director of that service. It is known that tlfe Secretary long * as regarded Mr. Newell as inimical to ? is plans for the reclamation service. 7 Ir. Newell has openly opposed Mr. Badinger, and Mr. Balltnger in turn has ' ublioly stated that he did n'ot regard f Ir.

J Secretary Bellinger today declined to tl Ircum the reorganization of the recla- * nation service In so far as.lt related to t, Mrector Frederick H. Newell, whose fate ? ias long been a matter of conjecture, ii xcept to say that he considered Mr. d Jewell's relation to the service as its o tead a misfortune. tl Mr. Bellinger expects to leave Washing- d on within a few days for a westward rip. during which he will visit several ndian reservations and probably some >f the reclamation projects.
