London, Nov. 9. The change of opin.

TERMS OF THE CODICIL8.
One of the codicils gave $30,000 to
the erection of a Newsboys' Home, to be
known as tbe George Maulsby Home, and
by apjUicatlon to court tbe executors were
allowed to purchase the house at the south
cast corner of Third nnd C streets north
west, opened some months ago as tbe
home provided for. Another codicil men
tions the "written Instrument," refers
to the purchase of lots on Kalorama
Heights, and sets apart four of these as tbe
site for a "memorial." It is not made
clear whether this means the George
Maulsby Memorial or some other, but
as tbis codicil precedes that providing for
the George Maulsby Home it appears
more probable some other Is meant.

District Will Make Brightwood
Railway Conform to Law.
ATTORNEY THOMAS' OPIHION
Com m ins loners Ilnva the Right to
Order G radon Changed uud Charge
Cost to Com imny Special I'ollco
'iienMayMuke Arrests Undorliulea
Prescribed for tho Regular Force.
The District Commissioners will shortly
take steps to have the Brightwood Railway
tracks relald so as to conform to the new
grade on Brightwood avenue, between
Whitney avenue and Rock Creek Church
road, the work to be done by the District
and charged against tho company.
This action is foreshadowed in an opinion
rendered jesterday by Attorney Thomas,
to whom the matter was referred upon a
letter of inquiry written by Assistant
.Engineer Commissioner G. J. Fiebeger.
The attorney quotes section C of the
charter of the Rrightw ood Company, which
provides that "lu the cent of a change
of grade at any time of any of the streets,
avenues or roads occupied by the tracks.
It shall be the duty of said company to
change its said railroad so as to conform
to such grade as may have been thus cs
tabllslied, at its own expense.
The act of July 11, 1878, is also re
ferred to. which contemplates Hint street
railway companies shall conform their
railway tracks to grade, but it does not
provide a remedy In case they fall to com
ply with tbe law, as It does in the case of
their failure to do the paving required of
SIMILAR CASE CITED.
Attorney Thomas finds precedent for
Ills opinion in the decision of Justice Hag
ner in the case of the District vs. Uie
Washington nnd Georgetown Railway Com
pany, and concludes wlUi tbe declaration
that the Brightwood Company having bad
the opportunity to cbauge Its tracks, and
having failed to do so.lt becomes the right
and duty of the District to do the work
and charge Uie cost against the company.
In the opinion of Attorney S.T.Thomas, a
special officer has the same right to mako
arrests lor crime as other members of the
Metropolitan Police Force bave, and at any
Tbe circumstances which called for this
expression was the reference of a query
made hy U. M. Willis, a special officer, at
the Baltimore and Potomac station, who de
sired to know If he bad the authority to
take a person into custody at the time of
committing a breach of the peace, or who
might be guilty of other infraction of tbe
law, in his presence, even If the act be not
committed within the limits of territory
prescribed by his commission.
Mr. Thomas says that section 370, of the
revised statutes of the Distrlit, authorizes
tbo appointment of special policemen to do
duty at any plaro within the District, at
the charge and at the expense of the person
by whom the application is made. SecUon
376 declares that special policemen shall
be subject to the orders of Xhe Commission
ers, and shall obey tho rules and rcgulaUons
and shall perform such duty as the Com
missioners may defalk They shall, also,
during the term of thelrappulntment, possess
all the powers, privileges, and duUes of the
For these reaions, and based also upon a
court decision in a case brought for false
arrest, when the officer making tbe arrest
was a special policemau, the attorney
comes to the conclusion noted.
Tnts will have an important bearing on
trw (.tat us of a class of patrolmen who
bare heretolors been held to the limits
of a prescrtbal territory In the discharge
of their urnclal duties.
The ComuiUoiouers have been asked by
a correspondent, Mr. W. J. Morris, as to
whether or not the District proposes to
enter suit against the Washington Market
Company to recover the rents and profits
accruing during tts-unlawfuloccupancy of
The market company datmed possession
of the square under a lease and held It
for a number of years, renting stands and
spaces therein to market dealers. Under
a decision reccnUy rendered by one of the
District courts, the property passes to
the possession of the District, and the Idea
of the inquirer seems to have been that the
market coaipajiy should be made to pay
over its accumulated rents.
Tbe matter has been relerred to the at
torney for the District for an invcsU
gaUon of tbe legal phases.
President iiakcr or uie coiumuia uaii

Traction Company, have been each asked
to atsist the police department in enforc

of vehicles at crossings where the two
PRESIDENT BAKER'S SUGGESTION.
At President Baker's request, the Com
missioners recently issued an order requir
ing the obeenance of tbe regulations, and
jesterday a letter was addressed to him
and to Mr. Dunlop requesting that their
trainmen be directed to report all viola
tions that may ccme under their observa
tion. Mr. Roger Williams, clerk to the exciss
board, has placed four hundred and fifty
application lor licenses in the hands of the
police for InvcsUgotion since the first
of the month. Aboutonehundredxeeponses
nave been received.
The applications will, as far as possible,
be considered In the order in which the ap
plications were received. The "clear"
cases will, however, be first considered,
as all over which there is the probability of
contest will be held for a tearing of the

Tlie wholesale market men are not al
together satisfied with the arrangements
for disposing of the stalls in Haymarket
CoL Wright Rives, who was at '"ie Dis
trict building yesterday, suggested the
posslbUity of a number of proposals Icing
received for each of the best staUs while
many oUiers not bo desirable wUl not be
wanted by anybody.
Col. Rives suggested that all the stalls
be exposed to public aucUon and let the
highest bidder get his choice.
WHEN FUNDS ARE PROVIDED.
With regard to the proposed change In
the center tpnce, as suggested by the whole
sale dealers, Col. Elves was advised by let
ter that no consideration can be paid to
the recommendation unUl the Commis
sioners are in receipt of funds. To meet
Uils contingency the suggestion is made
that the bidders win pay three months' rent
each in advance. Considering that there
wiU be two hundred staEs available, at a
low CBtlniate. the sale will probably net
$3,000 for the first quarter's rental.
Messrs.IL A. Wlilard, John Joy Edson,and
Jesse B. Wilson had a conference yesterday
with the Commissioners respecting the prop
osition made by the board of assistant
assessors for an extension of the time for
the required report of the assessment now
The request of the assistant assessors Is
strongly Indorsed hy Assessor Trimble, and
Is based upon the amount of work Imposed
upon them under the law.
The law, as passed, requires that the
board shall on or before tbe first Monday
in January, 1896, mako and deliver to the
assessor, a return in tabular form of the
amount, description, and value of the real
property subject to be listed for taxation.
This valuation shaH be determined from
actual view of each separate tract or lot.
The board says to do this will be
physically impossible, and hence tbe re
quest for the extension.
The gentlemen were averse to a post
ponement, for various reasons, but they
recogoiza that the sstrsrnni are right,
and that to do the work as reqsired will
consume more time. It was explained
