Chief I'urrlN Urffe More Alnrtn Boxen

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."

missioners yesterday for work under the

Hoarseness In a child that is subject to
croup is a sure indication of the approach
of the disease. If Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy is given as soon as the child be
comes hoarse, or even after the croupy

attack. Many mothers who have croupy

Mrs. Ivubel Wonts the Quiet of First
Mrcet Left Undisturbed.
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.
