afford merchants such an opportunity as is
presented by no oilier medium In tills city.
The Timet tarries no business of mer

slivnys have. Merchants who use Tlie
Tlnieb do so because they have carefully
estimated its value and have realized
the bmefits to be derived from therr-cx-penditcrcs.
The limes asks for business on merit
only. Its clrtulitlon is fully 23 per cent
greater than that of any other paper
published in Washington, and affects more
trade than all others combined.

Tlie commission merchants on Louisiana
avenue, between Ninth and Tenth fctreels,
appear to havegood ground for their pro
test against the order directing the removal
of their goodsfrom the sidewalk. There does
rot siem to b any reason for requiring
them to do something which will not merely
Interfere sirlously with their convenience,
bnl make It almost Impossible for thm to
transact their business prorcrly, if at all.
In fact, a large proportion of the goods they
handle Is of "a kli.d that compliance with
the Commissioners' order would Involve
griat pecuniary loss.
Enforcement of the order, which, though
-there be ulaw on the subject, rests largely
within thcdlscrition of the Commissioners,
might bejirstiflitl. If there had been a great
deal of 'complaint about obstruction of the
sidewalks or of bad odors Troin the wares
exposed, or for any other good and suf
ficient cause. But the sidewalks or that
partner Louisiana avenue are probably
wider than any other In the city, and more
than one-hair or them Is left free for
pedestrians. Tlieproduceexposedforsaleis

portion orthe sidewalks next to the stores
Vr the" rocrcH.lfitc be.regarded as a public
nuisance or even as an obstruction In the
proper sense of that word.
When the sidewalks or Louisiana avenue
were only 'about one half the width they
arc at present they were thus occupied by
the commission merchants and no one
thought of entering complaint on that ac
coun tor of attempting to interfere with their
business. They have there built up their
trade and if now they are to be compelled
to make so radical a change as that consej
quent upon the enforcement or tills order,
the majority or them will suffer such
losses as will force thim out of business.
One of them, who has rollowed this busi
ness for forty years, bo slated to the
The Commissioners have done wisely to
suspend the enforcement of the order. It
should remain suspended until Congress has
the opportunity to repeal whatever statute
is Ju the way.
It Is evident, Irom the news columns of
The Times this morning, that the warfare
waged bv this newspaper against tbe Il
luminating monopolies of thiscity has
not been without effect.
The creation in Mnllrarnt which shall
finally orystnllize into legislation is, or
course, the poiut towards w hlch Tlie Times
is striving But It is interesting to know
that the value of the slocks of the Wash
ington Gaslight Company, the George
tow u Gas Company and the United Stales
Electric Lighting Company show a total
shrlukage of more than $200,000 during
the past fty days.
When investors begin to suspect tliat in
the near future the present plundering of
tne people Bj" these corporations must be
modified or cease, then the vitality or re
form in this direction receives real recognition
It may seem strange, to one who has
not studied the question, that the labor
logmen of the District and the conserv ative
basic-ess element, do not want to sec
$7,600,000, or $12,000,000, or $10,OuC,

propose, devoted in a lump sum and
within a comparatively short time, to any

first, to the enormous Interest entailed
by such proceduru and, second, to lhe
bringing In of thousands or foreign day
laborers who spend little moDey here or
else spend it In such a way as to largely
contribute to disorder and lawlessness.
Feasible plans nave been presented
whereby an annual sum could be raised
lutflclent to maintain work on a sewerage.
system and street improvements within
the dry. The ralslngof tills money would
not entail any burden, of usury, in fact it
seed not be larger than the annual inter
est payments.
Under this plan the taxpayers would
lave a principal of seven or ten millions
of Collars and local laboring men. who pay
7ent or taxes and who buy goods here,
would be given continuous employment
for years to come.
There -would seem to be no reason in

such a plan or one similar to It is nut en
tirely feasible. Tho Times will have more
to Bay on this subject after tbe people Lave

viz., tlie spending of money for tb.c Im

According to the latest statistical inTor
mtitiou gathered by Tbe Tbues there are
just 3GG policemen available for active
patrol duty. Or these 183 are on duty at

therefore that tho av erage patrolling force
