Chief Parris, of the District Fire De partment, yesterday called the attention of the District Commissioners to the lack of facilities for the proper protection of the Capitol. The Commissioners arc without au thority to afford better.protection for the structure as the Capitol comes under the supervision of the architect, but they are ready to co-operate In ever" possible manner, and the letter of the Are chief has been transmitted to the architect in order that he may be guided by the sug gestions therein contained. Chief Parris expresses the opinion that there are not enough Are hydrants on the Capitol grounds. The letter reads as follows: "I have the honor to recommend that the attention of the proper authorities be called to the lack of lire protection at the Capitol building. This was most apparent on the occasion of the recent fire. In the first place, there is no provision whatev er to send In a call In the event of a lire. Last Sunday everting it was neces sary for an officer of the police depart ment to go to the coast and Geodetic Survey Building (box 51) to send In the alarm. This, of course, caused a delay. I would suggest that at least three fire alarm boxes be placed within the build ing one in each wing, and one in the central portion. "Again, the water supply Is wholly In adequate. There were but live engine working at this fire, and had It been nec essary to send for additional ones they would not have had sufficient hose tn reach the fire. As It was, engine com pany 14 used 1,400 feet of hose; engine companies I and 6. 1,(60 feet each; engine company S, 650 feet, and engine company 3, 500 feet. "In addition to being compelled to lay out so many feet of hose, engine compa ny S reports that upon Its arrival It con nected with the hydrant at the south steps on the east side, but found they could get no water, and were compelled to take their engine to the cistern directly In front of the building. Such a state of affairs should not exist, ttna I would earn estly urge that the necessary water mains be laid and fire hydrants erected to give this building the proper protection." Comm!Htoiieri4 Order.

If Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is given as soon as the child be comes hoarse, or even after the croupy tough has appeared. It will prevent the attack. Many mothers who have croupy children always keep this remedy at hand and find that It saves them much trouble and worry. It can always be de pended upon and is pleasant to take.

Mrs. Josephine Kubel, a resident of First I Street northeast, has written to the Com missioners protesting against the con struction of an underground electric sys tem of the City and Suburban Railroad along First Street northeast. In the block between C and D Streets. At present there are no car tracks In the street. The Ecklngton line extends out C Street and returns from Its Eastern ter minus In D Street as far as Fourth Street, passing along the latter thorough fare to C Street and running again In C Street to the heart of the city. Under the franchise providing for the installation of the new underground system the City and Suburban line, as it will then be called, will not run on Fourth Street from D to C Streets, but will continue by single track along D to First Street, and along the latter street southward to C Street, where It will join the old route. The protest is against the single track construction on thls,strc-et. In replying to the complaint yesterday, the Commission ers stated that the track is to be laid In conformity with provision made by the act of Congress authorizing the installa tion of the new system, and for this rea son they have Informed Mrs. Kubel that they cannot interfere In the matter.
