The following 13 the annual report of Gen. O.

Humphreys, Chief Engineer, United States Army:
Qenekal: I have the honor to submit the fol
lowing report of the operation of the works' un
der my charge for the fiscal year ending Jose
GKOUXDS SOUTH or THI EXECUTIVE JfASSlOlT.
The work of filling these grounds to the grade
or Fifteenth ana Seventeenth streets has pro
gressed gradually during the year, and ss the
appropriation made for the purpose would allow.
A considerable quantity of earth Is deposited In
these grounds hy citizens from excavations made
from cellars, be, Ac This, together with such
earth as was satisfactorily purchased, was used
In grading these grounds.
Work was commenced on the JI onnment grounds
July 1, 1S73, and carried forward until the appro
priation for the same was expended, with the
lollowlng results: The high ground along Four
teenth street and south of the present roadway
was cut down to the proper grade, the earth so
removed being used for filling along Fourteenth
street, north or the entrance of the roadway to
The graded grounds were rolled, covered "with
good soil, ana sown with Kentucky blue grass
seed. The main roadway was repaired and re
graveled from time to time In places where
needed, and thus kept in good order. Believing
it more economical and expeditious to form a
small lake or that portion of the marsh lying
east ef Meridian avenue than to fill the same
with earth, a portion of the muck deposit war
excavated and removed to the White lot, and
used to form a compost for the dressing of the
different grounds. This excavation was com
pleted In September. Connection was made with
the sewer In B street, and so arranged with stop
plank that at low tide the water can be drawn
lrom the lake. Bountiful springs were found
near the shore ol the lake; bat to insure a full
supply of water the Potomao water was taken
from the Fourteenth-street supply pipe. This
was accomplished by laying 800 feet ol four-inch
pipe from Fourteenth, street to a position nearly
opposite the monument, from which point a three
inch pipe (300 feet) was laid to the centre of the
lake, to which a fountain Jet was attached. Dur
ing cold weather tbe lake formed safe and good
skating for children, and was much enjoyed by
As the entire portion or these grounds south
and a portion north of tbe Institute, along
Twellth street, had not been graded or Im
proved, work was first commenced there. This
portion was thoroughly sub-drained, three-inch
tile being used, and laid In trenches three leet
deep and thirty feet apart. These pipes were
led into six-Inch sewer pipes, which were con
nected with the main sewers or the city In tjevtath
and Twelfth 6trects. The enUro grounds above
mentioned were graded, covered with good soil
and sown with Kentucky blue grass seed. As
the part of the grounds so graded Is about one
third or the entire square. It required the moving
of a great cumber of cable yards of earth. It la
now ready for the construction ef the walks and
for planting. A line or stx-lnsh sewer pipe was
laid along the north line of these grounds from
Twelfth to Seventh street, and connected with
the main sew.r or tbe city at the last-named
street. "T" pieces were put In at proper dis
tances to receive lateral drains from the ground
formerly occupied by the old canal, which is now
a part of these grounds. The gravel walk lead
ing from the Institute north to Tenth street was
taken up and re laid with asphalt, This walk is
the most used by the public, and atter rains, and
in the spring, was at times almost impassable.
It Is now in good condition at all times of the
A thlrtecn-lnch water main running through
these grounds was tapped near the centre or the
grounas-and a four-Inch pipe run east to Seventh
street. From this pipe lateral branches of two
inch pipe were run to B street tooth, two hun
dred icet apart, and stop-cocks and valves were
put In at proper distances to afford easy Irriga
tion when needed. The four-inch pipe was con
nected with tbe sewer In Seventh street with a
stop-cock, so that the water canbe drawn from
the pipes in the winter when they are not In use,
in order to prevent their being destroyed by the
freezing of tbe water. When making connection
with the twelve-inch main, a six-Inch pipe was
laid west a few feet, thus obviating the necessity
of again making a connection to this main to sup
ply fountains, 11 it should subsequently be de
cided to build them. The line of wood fence on
Seventh and Twelfth streets was removed, tbe
material of any value being taken to the Monu
ment grounds and stored. The roadways and
walks in the improved portion of these -grounds
have been kept tree from weeds, and the trees
have been properly .trimmed and are In good
ABUORY SQUARE. ""
In this square the grading has been completed,
with the exception or a small portion near the
railroad depot. The portion graded was covered
with good soil, and sown with blue grass seed, har
rowed In and rolled. The old fences surrounding
it were removed and taken to the Monument
grounds, and a row of hedge along the line or the
old canal was removed, thus giving this square a
better and much more extended appearance. The
surplus earth taken from these grounds was used
In filling the reservation Just opposite. As tbe
brick building In this square, known as tbe
"Armory building," is old, unsightly, and con
tracts the appearance or the grounds, I recom
mend that authority be given to sell the same at
public auction, tbe proceeds to be used In orna
menting tbe grounds. For this reason I have not
Included any sum lor their Improvement In my
estimates lor the next fiscal year.
RESEBTATIOSS SETWXE2T THIRD A5D SIXTH
The Board of Public Works having raised the
grade of Missouri and Maine avenues several
leet, these reservations are so far below grade that
they became nuisances, from the fact ot their col
lecting the drainage from the higher grounds
around, forming pools of stagnant water very In
jurious to the public health. In order to correct
this, as far as possible, the appropriation forthese
reservations was expended lor earth to fill these
The old wooden buildings on this square, for
merly occupied by the Government as hospitals
and later by tbe Women's Christian Association,
were told August 12, 1873, but were not entirely
removed until November, at which time the Im
provement of the square was commenced, the sub
drainage being the first work done. A brick sewer
runs diagonally through this tquare from G and
Filth streets to E and Fourth streets, built for the
purpose of draining the Jail, the City hall build
ing, and for othcrpurposes. Connection was made
with this sewer at G street, from which a line of
six-Inch terra cottaplpe was laid along the north
line or the square to the fence surrounding the
Jail. From this pipe lines of three-Inch tile were
laid three feet deep and thirty feet apart, and
running to Louisiana avenue. From tha connec
tion at E street a slx-lnth terra cotta pipe was
run west 270 leet. Into this lines of three-Inch
tile, thirty feet apart, were run south to
Louisiana avenue and north to the Jail yard'
fence. The. three Inch-tite was laid three feet
deep, and the.iix-lnch sewer at a depth to secure
tbe necessary fall to secure rapid drainage. In
the construction of this sub-draining, 052 feet of
six-Inch sewer pipe, and 23,115 feet of three-Inch
tile were used. For the purpose of Irrigation and
to supply fountains, three lines of four-Inch water

from Filth street. Along each one of these lines,
at Intervals of zoo feet, aline or two-Inch pipe was
laid on each side 100 feet lrom the main l'jie, and
at right angles to it, at the ends or which anglo
valves are to be attached, so that every raut or

Iron pipe was used. A large quantity or earth
was hauled into these grounds by the Board or
Public Works, and it was used in grading the
low places. The entire grounds were rough
graded, and part or the walks staked out in read,
incss for excavation. Large quantities of loose
stones were plowed up while the grading was
going on. They were collected together, with a
lot or other loose stones in the square,
and deposited in piles near tbe Jail
yard. They will be broken to the proper
site and used for the foundations for the
roads and walks. The Iron fence surrounding
parts of the square waa turned over to tbe Board
or Public Works, which, together with some or
tbe same pattern taken from around the Capitol
S-ounds, will be used to fence along the line or
overnment reservation fronting upon the old
canal, from Sixth street west to Fifteenth street.
The brick building on this square used for school
purposes was. removed In the fall. Iron park

the tntlde of this square the necessary mains
hare been laid sufficient to supply forty lamps.
These posts, three of which combine a drinking
fountain, with the requisite number ol lamps,
have been purchased, and will be placed In post

the people who pats through this square a wooden
walk was laid along the line or E street, so as to
avoid tbe mud and wet or the winter and spring.
In this square the work or excavating, grading,

constructed. Two fountain bowls, each thirty
feet In diameter, have been made or brick, and
the necessary supply of water and drain pipes led

had not been built. This sewer was completed
by the Board of Publlo Works during tbe spring,
and connection was made with It, and the circle
drained or the ponds or standing water, after
which tbe Improvements were renewod. The
circle was graded, excavation for fountain made,
drainage for the same provided, connection made
with the water pipes for supplying the fountain,
and the work of constructing the bowl com
menced. A quantity of clay from this circle was
hauled to the "Scott statue reservations," and
used In grading the same.
This circle has been Improved by taking up the
gravel walks, grading and narrowing them, and
relaying with screened gravel. They were care,
fully roiled, and now present a smooth and hard
surface, very pleasant to walk upon. The ground
around the statue has been enlarged, regraded
and sodded. A brick gutter was laid around tha
circle Inclosing tbe statue and on each aide or the

established by the Board or l'ubllc Works, were
cut down to grade, and the dirt (2,951 yards) was
hauled Into the grounds south or tbe Executive
Mansion, and used for filling.
Fonr reservations on Pennsylvania avenue,
east or the Capitol, were surrounded with Iron
potts, to which was attached a rati of gas pipe.
The reservation on Massachusetts avenue, be

Place," In honor or Henry Clay, has been graded,
water and tewer pipe led into It lor a fountain,
and enclosed with a wrought-Iron fence.
The reservation on New York avenue, between
Tenth and Eleventh streets, has been encloted
with a wrought-lron park fence, and a fountain
and Iron bowl placed in position, for which the
necessary water and drainpipe has been provided.
A number of evergreens hare been set out in the
reservation on New York avenue and H street, In

The reservation on the north tide of Pennsyl-,
vanla avenue, between Eighteenth and Nine

the old wooden fence that enclosed It, and sub
stituting a park pott and chain. It was graded
and the walks laid oat on the same plan as tho
one opposite. The walks were filled with gravel
and rolled. A few park settees were placed In
this and tbe reservation opposite, and securely
tattcned to the ground.
No work has been done In this cemetery since

A large number of cart loads of a vegetable de
posit (muck) has been excavated from the low
and marshy grounds In the monument lot and
hauled Into the White lot adjoining. This muck,
after being exposed to the action or the weather,
was turned over and thoroughly mixed wttn
lime L500 bushels or which were used. The
lime pulverizes the muck and kills the germ or
any teed that may be in it, and makes a valuable
and comparatively chespcompost. It was hauled
and spread on the public grounds when they were
frozen, to prevent the cart wheels lrom dam
aging tho sod. The grounds were raked after
spreading, so as to evenly distribute It, The use
of this compost has been very satisfactory, and
growth of grass marked.
The green-houses at this garden, formerly lo

rebuilding these bouses was taken principally
from the old green-bouses and from the houses
removed from the squares added to the Capitol
grounds last year. In addition to the construc

built and supplied with the necessary heat, Ac
These frames are comparatively inexpensive to
build and heat, and are very useful. The plants
were removed to the new houses, and properly
arranged before any damage was done to them
by frost or exposure to the autumn storms. A
quantity of bulbs and seeds was Imported from
Europe for the green-house and the grounds, and
was Imported to secure the varieties desired. A

From present Indications both candidates will
