to n Inlllc IIMI Keslde n Cliureli
Hie Commissioners yesterday decided
Uie quWtion of awarding the contract for
laying sheet asphalt on the streets of the
District Proposals were received for this
work on June 1 1901 There were four
proposals three from local companies and
one from the VTarmr Qulnlan Asphalt
Company or Syracuse X Y The fact
developed in the examination of the pro
posals that the Syracuse Company was
the lowest bidder for laying the paving
hut that they stipulated to use what is
known as land asphalt instead of lake
According to the specifications it was
made obligatory upon the bidder to pay
the expenses of the representatives of
ihe District to such points as the works
of thecornpany might be located and to
several cities where the paving laid by
the company had been laid This was
done and Capt H C Newcomer of the
Knnineer Department and A A Dow
Chemist of the department went on a
visit of inspection to Syracuse to Utica
X Yand to other points An exhaustive
their return
inspection was made and upon
turn they submitted a report to the Engineers-Commissioner
in which it was set
forth that the paving laid by the Warner
Quinlan company meets with all the re
quirements of paving in the District of
Before deciding the question a public
hearing was held at which the views of all
concerned were given and the relative
merits of the two kinds of aspnalt were
fully discussed Sinc3 then the financial
responsibility of the company has been
made the subject of enquiry and on yes
terday the Commissioners were satisfied
and awarded the contract
on over Point
for the laying of sheet asphalt paving
for the next fiscal year to the Syracuse
The interests of the Warner Quintan
company have been represented by Hugo
Held who placed in the hands of the
Commissioners all the information re
quired On Wednesday through Mr Red
p J Brennan of the Brennan Construc
tion Company was made a member of the
and will ba
Warnor Quinlan
the local representative of the corpora-
tion in the District to perform the work
with the Commissioners
and carry on its
Much credit is due Mr Dow for the re
sults reached In giving the District paving
at less cost than formerly He has stud
ied the qualities of land asphalt for a
vear or two in his laboratory and when
the time came this year to issue adver
tisement for bids his representations to
the Commissioners were that it would be
advantageous to throw the work opinio
other forms of asphalt paving with the
result that the lowest bidder was one who
vail lay the land asphalt
The contract for the new paving will
take effect July 1 and the paving pro
vided for in the last appropriation it la
understowa will be Ixgun promptly with
the opening of the fiscal year

The Board of Trustees of the McKcndree
II E Church have entereo a vivi
against the granting of a permit for the
erection of building or buildings on the
east side of Xinth Street between Massa
chusetts Avenue and L Street northwest
containing a public hall to be rented for
general entertainments In reference to
the matter they say
The lot on which it is proposed to erect
the structure referred to Is adjacent to the
property of the McKcndree 1L E Church
which fronts on Massachusetts Avenue
and there is nothing but a narrow alley
Ijctween the two properties A public
hall erected -and used on the land indi
cated on the east Bide of Xinth Street
open to rental to all sorts of assemblages
will not only tie objectionable to our
church society but will be harmful to
the 1MK of the church property and to
th services held therein
We therefore enter our protest
against the granting of a permit for the
erection of any building or buildings at
th point indicated above to contain any
liublic hall to be let or renteu for promis
buous assemblies general entertainments

IX B McComb Superintendent of Sew
rs In reporting upon the matter states
that the sewer in the alley of square IK
is too small to carry the drainage when

miaeioflers have approved
Frank E Altemus of 140S P Street

cellar doors and wood frame structure In
the rear of 7M Seventh Street northwest
Mr Bool also requested permission to

premises named acd at one end of the
blind alley in square 4M
The Inspector of Buildings Informed the
Commissioners that both the cellar doors

beyond the building line and that it was
the policy not to issue permits for repairs
which involve this violation of the build
ing rules

C B Hunt the Computing Engineer has

Mnjor SylveMerH Reeoinmciiilntlons
In the Anliton Cane Approved
The Commissioners have approved the
recommendations of Major Sylvester in
the case of Polfceman H L Ashton Ash
ton was charged with conduct unbecom
ing a policeman and found not guilty by
the Trial Board The specific charge
against Ashton was that he conducted
himself in an Improper manner toward
two women while they were In a public
thoroughfare In his review of the case
Major Sylvester recommended an over
ruling of the suggestion of the Trial
Board and the dismissal of Ashton from
the force Major Sylvester in his report
This case was reported to these Head
quarters by the prosecuting witnesses
whose only motive so far as ascertained
in making the complaint to thepolice
was to secure action against a m4n after
ward found to be a member of the police
force who they felt had insulted them
Nothing has been found that would Im
peach the testimony of tho prosecuting
witnesses and the proprietress of ihe
premises in which they reside has the
reputation of exercising every precaution
which might tend to qualify her patrons
as respectable people If tho defendant
thought otherwise and was attracted by
them he was guilty of neglect of duty In
not taking proper action
On the other hand It appears that the
alleged kissing was followed up by the
defendant taking a position opposite tho
domicile and windows of the prosecuting
witnesses and left enly when a policeman
was called Then instead of disclosing
his identity as a brother olllcer with au
thority he apparently endeavored to elude
identllicatlon He was intercepted how
ever and then he assumed the attitudo
of innocence It Is unusual for a member
ot the force to go entirely out of the lati
tude where he Is employed in this case at
the Long Bridge and consume his own
time In looking up a person who has es
caped from the workhouse unless he had
been directed to do so through Headquar
ters or his precinct
The defendants witnesses differ as to
the number of persons at the corner in
question which casts a bad light on the
affair and while the prosecutors differ
somewhat in the matter of precise loca
tion thry agreo upon the fact of the at
traction on the part of the defendant In
stead of making women and ciuiuren tne
objects of disrespect there should not be
the slightest doubt as to their protection
by members of the police force and I am
constrained to agree with Captain Austin
and Mr Pugh the Assistant Attorney for
the District that the defendants conduct
ws not that of a good officer
Jhe position Is strengthened by his
carelessness or indifference as evidenced
in Uie second case herewith presented
wherein he was found guilty of absence
from duty without leave and by a third
Instance when he neglected to take fcucn
action with reference to an accident that
had occurred on the Long Bridge as
would enable him to Immediately inform
the department fully as to the fact con
nected therewith While he failed for an
ambulance and stated that there was an
ateident he did not pursue the case
promptly but waited until the next day
to enlighten the department
In my opinion the defendant should he
removed from the force My In
him after a trial is shaken

In answer to tho charges made by James
Ottoway Holmes who asks for a divorce
