The Commissioners are In receipt of
a eommunicatlon from David S Carll
civil engineer and general superintendent
calling attention to the fact that it Is
elangerous for cars going cast to stop at
New Jerse Avenue and II Street south
east n the near sldq of the street as
reemircd to do by the recent order Issued
b the Commissioners Mr Carll states
thut the compan offers no objections to
the stop for the trains bound west but
he does ask that the trains bound east
rtiould not be required to stop on the near
fide lie Informs the Commissioners that
It Is Impossible for trains going up Cap
itol HIP to obtain a high rate of siieed
and he savs the could be brought to a
top In a verv short distance at any time
on reaching New Jerse Avenue
Mr Carll states that he is fearful that
if ever train Is compelled to etop on the
grade it might lead sometime Id serious
results if the track were slipper and
the trains should start to run backward
down the grade Mr Carll adds that It
Is on account of this danger that the pres
ent regulations of the compan forbid
ony stop at the street crossings on Capi
tol Hill Ittween First Street west and
the east side of Xevv Jerse Avenue cx
eent In cases of erm rgnc
Captain L S Beach the Engineer Com
missioner has forwarded to his colleagues
a recommendation that the request or the
compan he granted as It is believed that
the rtop on the near side of the street In
this case might result In accident
Thomas W Gilmer has written to the
Commissioners and submitted a state
ment relative to She general and firm en
forcement of the Police Regulations upon
all and not upon the few Mr Gilmer
disclaims an desire to Influence the
Board of Commissioners unduly or upon
n particular case but at the same time
he expresses the hope that the authori
ties will see to it that the police force
has no excuse to infer that the regula
tions or other laws are not to be rigidly
enforced uniformly and impartially
If it Is right to compel an man to
obc anv particular lew then Mr Gilmer
thinks that all should be compelled to
obe the same law under the same cir
cumstances Mr Gilmer admits that the
statement sounds like a platitude but he
thinks that the police should never for
get It He believes that an ollicer who
has the courage to enforec the law unl
forml is too valuable a man to lose
Cortlnulng Mr Gilmer
At the same time when a regulation Is
of anv importance the police should en
force It b soft persuasion If possible In
j jeh case the should not humiliate the
citizen b making nn arrest If the dig
itH of the law can l upheld In any
other wa The police should remember
the difference between the malum pro
hibitum and malum In se
I desire to a in this connection that
no p rson under arrest ought to be ex
posed to the public gaze In an open p i
trol wagon All vehicles for the trans
portation of prison rs should be eovtred
cspeclall In lw of the fact that Inno

opinion will be preferable to the present

within 1 few weeks and will be read
