The note was almost Identical with that sent to Dr. Hammond, ai described In The Evening Times of jesterday. The reference to Gen.

Flagmen Arc Not to lie Stationed ut Street Ilnllwnj" CroHsiinjH. An lufurmal meeting was held jesterdai between President Dunlup or the Capital Traction Company and President Harries and Secretary Coleman of the Metropolitan Company with the District Commissioners. The responsibility for the accident at Ninth street and Pennsjlvaula avenue was discussVd and the necessity for some set tled sjstctu of running the cars across in tersections considered. The meeting was not prearranged , the visitors happening to call at the same lime, but the issue was naturally raised by reasun of the coincidence. If the conference amounted to anything derii.ite it was that there will be no order Issued requiring flagmen at the crossings, and runner, that the Commissioners will insist, upon il settled permanent system or signals for the running of the cars on the rapid transit lines; that the signals must, lie agreed to by both companies and submitted in writing for the approial or the Commissioners at an early date. President Dunlup insisted, also, that thero shall be an order Issued giiing the oldest road, which is the Capital Traction Com pany, 'the right of way. This was not' seriously opposed by President Harries, and it is probable such an order will soon be promulgated. m m . IJEEp" WATEH COJIMISSION. Hoard td Num.- tin; California Harbor Appointed. The river and harbor bill, passed at the last session or Congress, contained a pro vision that the location of a deep water harbor In the State of California should be determined by a commission to be tom poscd of a'Naval officer, to be detailed by the Secretary of the Navy, an officer of the Coast and Geodetic Survey, to be detailed by tile superintendent, and three civil engineers, to be appointed by the President. The board has been organized as follows: Detailed by the Becretary of the Navy, Rear Admiral John p Walker. Detailed by the superinlendeur or tlirs Coast and Geodetic Survey, Assistant Augustus F. Rogers. Appointed by tho.President, William H.. Burr of New York. George S. Morrison J or New York, Richard. T. Morgan or. II linols. s.T;,.,. "i "X ' V 'V LOST BY FIRE Hi FLOOD Hsrb r 'Master Reports River Front Disasters. On HE WANTS A' LARGER BOAT Specific Losncm That Slight Have lleen Avoided AlMiremilo of Half u Million Collars Experience With lec UurucH DtiiuuKCK 'I hut Could Only lie SuriiiHud. The District Commissioners, under date or the lDth Instant, required of Harbor master Sutton a statement showing the principal losses by lire and flood, along the river rrontor this city during the past sixteen years, the object being to demon strate Uie lalue or a larger harbor boat than the District now possesses. Tills statettient will be presented In con densed lorin to CongicsS as an argument In favor of Hie appropriation of i?50,000 asked lor to purchase a well-equipped Iron harbor, fire. Ice, and wrecking boat. The showing made or the aggregate specific losses in the time spcuried is nearly half a million dollais, wiUiln District territory alone, to say nothing of the recent big lass at Alexandria and other losses that can only be estimated. The object Is to prove to Congress that the presence or such a boat as that con templated In the estimate would hare alerted the loss of this large volume of property, or at least a large proportion or it. The harbor master refers first to the winter or 1 180, when the iner was frozen to a depth of twelve iuihcs, and sajs that when the Ice thawed and broke up In the Georgetown channel it gorged at the forks of the channel, causing the water to back up In the low parts of the city. COST OF A GOUGE. This gorge, he sai, cost hundreds of thousands or dollars, the exact amount of which can only besurmlscd. It mlglilhave been preicnted had there been a large ice boat at command to help expel the ice. There was a repetition of this freeze in lbSa, when tug boatB were hired at a cost of 1,700 to clear Hie river from the Aqueduct Bridge down, giving the ioo above the bridge a channel to escape and preienting a gorge. In 1885 there were aliout ten inches of Ice on Uie river. One tide of the draw at Uie Long Uridge was chocked up, but the tugs finally dislodged the ice and prevented an overflow. The work of the tugs cost $750. The river was freuof ice thereafter until the winter of 1b'j--!3, when there was anuther freeze to the depth of fourlet n Inches. Congress appropriated the money for hiring lugs to break the Ice. Flvu boats worked tenjiajs,aiid theexpense was $),8i:i.43. Independently uf this, how eicr, the Peiinsjliauia Railroad Company hf red two tugs, at un apgregat ecost of $000 to prevent damage to its bridge. Four lug boats were again necessary during the winter of lbO-S-05, for the pur ptise of breaking the ice and clearing Hie channel. They worked ten days and the bill of expenses footed up ?3,C(;y.C0. LIST OF FIRE LOSSES. A partiHl list of the large fires which have uccurred along the river Iroi.t during the sixteen jears is also submitted, together wiUi the aggiegate losses. No dates are giicn, but the statement proceeds as follows "Two hjdraullc mud machines, which cost ?250,nUO cadi, damaged to the ex tent or S100.000. "Statuer W W. Corcoran, total loss, $35,000. 'Steamer Lad) of the Lake, total loss, 530,000. 'Steamer W. W. Coil, total loss, 520, 000. "steamer Ella, total loss, 55,0o0 "Steamer Joe lll.iikburn. damage, S500. "Sleainer Washington, total loss, 515, 000. "Steamer Minerva, damage, $000." Other losses arc grouped, as follows Notional Capital lie Compani's stable, twice burned, SW.OoO; RUci's stable and sixtj horses, 520.000; Johnsons Brothers stable anil file burses, St'.OoO; Willis' Ue huue, the file hiing the worst th it en r occurred on the river front, about twenty houses beingdniiiaged by lire, 535,000, John Miller's mud ni.ulilrc, 510,000; garbage reduction plant, 550,000. Hundreds of small fires are mentioned, all of which lould have len extinguished l) a fire boat, and then there is an item of $15,000 loss In damage to seven small boats caused by the steamer George Lcary, on September 20, 1800. The Lcary was blown Ioov from her wharf by the hurricane and dm en into the other craft.. It is the belief of the harlKirmuster that a I oat of the proper size could have towed the Leary out of the raj of the smaller boats and prevented the damage. Mr button says also that If the harbor had been proilded with a wrecking bout the Mary Washington, which sank October 1-J. could have Iieen pumped out and $2,000 damage preicnted. Special attention Is called to the fact that the United Slates navy yard and the arsenal are In constant danger of fire, and that In no emergency could assistance be rendered by the Blackburn, the present harlKir boat With this the statement closes. nEALTII OFFICEH ItEPORTS. Oetull Proceedinr-H or Ainorlctin Pul llo Health Association. Dr. W. C. Woodward, District health officer, was authorized by the Commission ers to attend the annual convention of tlio American rubllu Health Association, and. in his capacity as delegate, returns a re port of the principal acts of that body which might be considered as of Interest to the District constltuencj-. He also de tails some ot his observations while away. Referring to the garbage question, Dr Woodward sais: "The committee on the disposal of garbage was in favor of,tlie cremation method." Ho adds, that ex periments, of which the association had knowledge, are now being made m Ger many that will determine the adi-isability of burning garbage with the general refuse of the city. Since Washington is debating the pro priety of adding to the present facilities a plant for the burning of refuse not classed as garbage, the news frora Ger many may be said to be or importance locally. Dr. Woodward sajs the city of Buffalo, where the convention was held, uses the reduction Bjstem for the disposal of gar bage, and that the plant is located four miles from the city limits. In the discussion of sanitary affairs the association took the grounds that municipal authorities are as responsible for the safety of those compelled to remain In their school houses as they are for thesnfely of those compelled to cross their bndges;'and should be held to the same accountability for the absence of suitable sanitary appliances or for the failure to provide for the proper construction of fire escapes. D1STIUCT NOT HESPONSIIILE. ConiiiilHsloiiiTH Defuse to Kc'lmburxe Mr. Alexander forStorm Damages. Columbus Alexander presented to the Commissioners recently n claim for reim bursement for losses incurred during the storm of September 20, tin- hurricane hat ing blo'ivn down a tree fronting his premi ses to the damage ot his residence, on New York avenue, between Ninth and Tenth Rtreels. He asked the District, through the Com missioners, to reimburse him. The board jesterday informed Mr. Alexander that it did not regard the District as responsible for the ruin wrought by a wind storm. Had a tin roor been blown from a dwell ing against a street tree, thereby ruining the shade qualities of that particular tree, the District, the Commissioners say. would not think of demanding pay for damage from the owner of the house.
