The old man ts called “Uncle Peter” In the neighborhood and often passers by would stop before his door for a chat.

STEPHENS GIVES CARNIVAL RULING Requirements Governing Is suance of Permit Are Explained. < The superintendent of police is re quired to issue an amusement permit even though 75 per cent of the resi dents on the confronting side of a square object to its location, according to an opinion submitted to the Dis trict Commissioners today by Francis H. Stephens, acting corporation counsel. The ruling was sought by MaJ. Henry G. Pratt, superintendent of police, as a result of a recent dispute over the granting of a permit to a carnival com pany. Stephens held that as a Drerequis'te to the issuance of amusement permits the regulations require that consents j be first obtained of three-fourths of the I resident housekeepers In the block on which the amusement is to be located as w'ell as 75 per cent of those <n the confronting block, and, in addition, the consents of three-fourths of the proper ty owners in these areas. “It will be perceived,” Stephens said, “that this requirement necessitates the obtaining of two majorities—that is, of i CLAFLIN Optician—Optometrist 922 14th St. N.W.

If three-fourths of the housekeepers In the areas described and three-fourths of the property owners In the areas described consent, the regulation Is compiled with and the permit must be issued. It Is possible under this regulation that all of the property owners and housekeepers directly opposite the amusement might object and still the necessary majorities be obtained and the amusement per mitted.
