Tho fire In the reviewing stand In front
of the AVhlte IIousu Friday night has
proved to lx more disastrous than was at
first supposed Two of the big stone pil
lars that mark the western gateway to
the White IIou c Grounds were so badly
damaged by the heat that they will prob
nbly have to be rebuilt The loss Is placed
at about J2li0 by members of the In
augural Committee but that figure Is
thought to be exaggerated Sir Parsons
lost a number of valuable tools and says
that JTEO will cover his loss The insur
ance on the structures expired but a few
hours before the lire
The question of lesponsibllily for the
damage to government property has not
yet been decided but Mr Edson of the
Inaugural Committee Is Inclined to hold
Contractor Parsons responsible for the
loss as ho Is said to have unnecessarily
delayed the removal of the structures
lr Parsons states that he used every
precaution for the protection of the build
ings and to that end employed a watch
The watchman denhs that ho was re

The hearing 111 the case of Policeman
William J Edwards before the police
trial board was brought to ail abrupt
termination yesterday afternoon by what
Is alleged to have been Insulting conduct
on the part of V Calvin Chase a negro
attorney who appeared In behalf of tho
Edwards was charged with conduct un
becoming an officer There were three
specifications which alleged tliat on Jan
uary I he mado a remark to Private
Payne which could be construed as a
thieat that about 725 oclock on the
night of March -1 he probably interfered
with Policemen Foster Dent and Payne
while they were putting an intoxicated
and turbulent prisoner Into a cell at No
C stationhouso nnd that on tho same
evening he used harsh language toward
PrlvnteDent and wanted to chastise him
The trial board was composed of In
spector Peariou and Lieutenants Swin
dell nnd lleffncr Inspector Pearson ob
jected to the manner In which Chase was
examining witnesses and was met with
the accusation
This board Is a prejudiced one and my
client cannot get justice here
The board excluded Chaso from the
room but after a consultation permitted
him to return Chase then took occasion
to sav that he would not retract ono word
Hint he had littered and that he reiterated
tho charge
Ho was then told that he could not con
tlnuo the hearing and was again exclud
The hearing was then continued until
Wednesday morning at 11 oclock to per
mit Edwards to secure other counsel

chases of any other concern
