I'resident Advised to Approve the Great Falls Electric Railway Dill. THE .NEW ASSESSORS QUALIFY Thoy Will Occupy Beomi at No. 223 First Street Attorney to Decida Upon Barber and Boss' Application for a Siding Award of Contracts for District Supplies. Tho Commissioners yesterday advised the President of tbetr approval of, and recom mended favorable action upon H. R. 6777, "to amend an act entitled 'an act to incorpo rate the Washington and Great Falls Electric Railway,' " which wa3 referred to them for their opinion. The Commissioners say the bill is not en tirely satisfactory, but the objectionable pro visions do not in their judgment so urgently require modification as to justify a recom mendation for the disapproval of the bill, in view of the general importance of the meas ure and of the probability that the necessary remedial legislation can be readily obtained. The objectionable features are of minor consequence, being merely defects that have crept in that will be easily corrected. Among the orders promulgated yesterday was the following: "That James A. Bates, Samuel G. T. Mor sell, and J. Harrison Johnson are hereby ap pointed members of the permanent board of assistant assessors, under the provisions of the net to 'To provide an immediate revision and equalization of real estate values In the District of Columbia; also to provide an as sessment of real estate In said District In the year 1SS6, and every third jear thereafter, and for other purposes,' approed August 11, 1891: appointments to take effect when ap pointees shall have qualified according to law." An official copy of this order was furnished to Assessor Trimble. I'resident Ross said to a Times reporter that In all probability the new board would qualify to-day and enter at onco upon their duties. The new board will occupy rooms for the transaction of Its official business at No. 223 First street, opposite the District Building, the consideration of exise business occupying attention on Tuesday and Friday of each w eek. ArrUEs ron a siding. The application of Barber & Ross, filed seeral days ago, for permission to cross Ninth street between K and L streets north east wl(h a railroad siding was referred by the Commissioners to the engineer depart ment and was in turn referred to General Inspector E. Y. Beggs, whose report is on file. The inspector says: "To construct a railroad siding such as is shown in the blue print necessitates consider ation of two important questions respecting the statutory powers of tho Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company, tho assumed source of the application, having direct reference to the construction of lateral tracks or sidings witnin the city limits; first, whether the said railroad company has tbe right to construct Literal traoks or sidings from their main stem within the city, and In so doing cross a street; second, whether the authority to permit the exercise of such right is vested in the Com mitsioners of the District of Columbia, or re quires special legislation by Congress. "A careful review of the legislation gov erning this road, together with the opinions of the attorney, to which I have had access, and the decislonsof the courts quoted therein, leads to tbe belief that the affirmative of both these propositions is capable of being main tained. "It is said that this Is not true with refer ence to the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad, hut that the title to tho etreet being In the United States, the right to use tbem for any other than the ordinary use should proceed from Consress, the reason assigned being the act of Congress admitting tho Baltimore and Fotomao Railroad into the city 'more specifi cally and mmutoly defined the route which they should pursue, and therefor" they do not posess the right to depart from it-' "The act of Congress admitting the Balti more and Ohio Railroad into the city appears to give that company greater scopo of author ity than doe tbe act of 1S70 admitting the Baltimore and I'otomae Railroad. By that act the Baltimore and Ohio Railroadis ad mitted with all the rights and privileges pos sessed by it under its charter or act of incor poration as passed by tbe legislature of Mary land February 18, 1827, its powers and priv ileges being defined." EEFUtESCE TO THE ATTOBSII. Inspector Beggs recommends a reference of the question to the attorney for the District for an opinion upon the points which the question may present. Commissioner Pow ell is of the opinion that the application should be disallowed upon tbe grounds that "the Commissioners have no authority to per mit tbe anphcunts to lay a railroad track across K street or any other public space." J. W. Boteler, of 923 Pennsylvania avenue, returns to the Commissioners certain bills presented to him for expense of paving alleys and sidewalks of lots in square 237 and 271. Mr. Boteler thinks It is a hardship that he has to pay for the work since it was done without notice to him, and besides he bad previously paid for the sidewalks and curb ing, 'and be regards the bills presented as duplicate charges. Ho is informed that the Court of Appeals has decided that the bill for compulsory pav ing is illegal, and asks that the matter be in e3tlgatei. The Commissioners were at the Capitol yesterday afternoon from 3 o'clock until 4 to dUcut'S with tbe District Committee the prospects for Di'trlct legislation at the present session. Commissioner Truesdell said upon his return that they got but little encourage ment. Awards of contracts for furnishlncr sup plies to the District tor the fiscal year ending June 30, 1695, have been approved as to the following firms: Mitchell & Reed. Robert Leiteh A Sons, W. A. Pate, ,W. H. Butler, llackall Bros & Flemmer, George F. Muth A Co., the Standard Oil Company, and F. P. May A Co. Orders were Issued yesterday as follows: The resignation of F. T. Thurston, observer and computer in the sewer division. Is hereby accepted, to take effect on the 12th instant, and Lamar Cobb, rodman in same department, was appointed vice Tburton. at the salary rate of el per diem. H. C. Hurd. chainman, was appointed rodman. An allotment from the appropriation for permit work in sewer department for the year endinc June 30, 1895, was approved for use in present qnarter. Amount allowed Is 34,000. UNSANITARY CONDITION OF AH ALLEY. Edward L. Jordan and others call tbe attention of the Commissioners to tbe un sanitary condition of the alley in rear of bouses on south side of H street northwest, between Fourth and Filth streets. The Commissioners were so busy on Thurs- not so much barm has ever grown out of our cardroom. In this case good came of it, as I will show you. "Some men are born gamblers. The In stinct of gaming is In their blood, and they will take cbances on any matter that concerns this world or the next. YoungMontgomery Rawdon Montgomery was such a one. He always wanted to play for higher etakes than the club limit He wanted money enongh to make the game "interesting.' So one night we determined to oblige him. "I must go back a little and tell you enongh about Montgomery, so that you may clearly understand what follows. He had been left some monay enough so that he had never been compelled to go regularly into business in order to get a living. He affected the so ciety of arti'ts a good deal, and had the merit of knowing a good picture when he saw it. Knowledge of this sort is just as valuable as a knowledge) of precious (tones or of any other fine commodity, if a man knows how to use it. and has tbe commercial instinct "Montgomery possessed these qualification and used them so that many a fairish picture pauod through his hands on the way from TWO PRIZE OFFERS.

For weeks fast the newspapers have pro phesied and the general public havo antici pated the adjournment of Congress, and the consequent reassurance in the industrial and commercial life of the country.

There has been no renewal of the engage ment. Kennedy A Davis, at the corner of Twcntj flrst and O streets northwest. Joseph Parris, No. 139 Massachusetts avenuo northwest, and F. Tenney, corner of C street and New Jersey aenue southwest, have the consent of .the Commi-sioners to extend buildings beyond tbe building line. M. Mosgal, at No. 237 Canal street alley sontbwest, complains to the Commissioners that the garbage collector has not been In that section for two weeks, and that the "alley Is run away with garbage." It is pertinently observed that "It will cause sickness if it is not taken away." The Commissioners are urged to see to its removal. Tne appropriation for the Improvement of M street northeast, between Twelfth street and Trinidad avenue, is included in the bill as finally passed and the work will probably be done this fall. Joseph Cartwrigbt was given permission to stand a public wagon on the cast side of Seventeenth street, between Pennsjhania avenue and U street northwest, abutting tho premises of . D. Davidgc, conditioned that no public nuisance or inconvenience is' caused. Tbe contractor to sweep tho streets has been notified to do a better job of sprinkling In DeSnlcs street, and Capt. W. M.

An immense meteor burst immediately over CoffeyilIe at 12 o'clock last night with a report that shook the earth tor miles around and frightened tbe people out of their wits. Those who witnessed the phenomenon state that it resembled a ball of fire passing through the sky, and when it reached a point directly oertbo town exploded with n deafening report. Fragments of the meteor were picked up in the streets. ,Teey present the appearance of a volanio rock after an eruption, being fused under the action of intense heat. The negroes are greatly excited over tbe occurrence, ana they look upon it as a direct warning from heaven that the judgment day 13 close at hand. e Jolly Fat .Men's Club Not the One.

LIKE REMINDERS OP F0MPEII Heavy Bronzes Melted -and Disfigured While the Color and Substance of Delicate Floss Silk Are Preserved A lady's Anxiety About the Family Bible Other Incident. About as interesting a place as there Is in the city just now is the scene of the recent great Knox fire. The ground on which the immense pile of brick and mortar stood is now co ered with the wreck, but a good deal of order has been eiolved out of the chaos. It looks like the ruins of a small city and tbe com parison is nllthemore exact, as tbe company has constructed lanes, allejs, streets, aud are- nues through the debris for the convenience of visitors and of those who want to identify their property. thousands upon thousands of people hne already been to tho scene. There were big cronds there yesterday, especially of two classes one with U10 Interest of melancholy, the other with tho stimulus of curiosity. For both classes there is sufficient attraction. The company has succeeded in so arranging, classifying, and exhibiting tho things not utterly destroyod by tbe flames that there Is much chance for tbe identification of prop erty. It was in this quest that tho crowds yesterday wandered up and down through the streets of the burned "city" to tee what luck the Thoenix had brought them. A great number of articles hue been stored in a shed on the west side of the square, on the south and east sides .there are piles ot clothing, on the north nnd f-outh are huge henjis of iron materials all burned and twisted out of recognition, and elsewhere, in the center under the shed and in other sate places are the myriads of things that consti tute the household furnishings from the most delicate nnd diminutive piece of bric-a-brac to the cooking range which appears to bate been quito at homo during the conflagration. MIBtCLES OF I-EES1.UVATIOX. Teoplewho go there will find that there hae been some miracles of preservation One can see, just as they were excavated, a painting with colors almost intact beside a bronze, which is no longer u bronze from the Intense beat. A lady held in her handjes terday two old-fashioned photograph cases fastened together. Tho leather covers were scorched, and it was impossible to see a single lineament of the scorched daguerreo type faces inside, but there wero three slips of white satin ribbon between tbe cases and tbey had not the slightest trace of .fire. In a great many Instances jou will see little enamelled things with a never-touched-me look on them, while the chalk dog or tbe wooden cat, their companions on the what not, have been burned Into lime or cinders. A most remarknble instance of this oue-will-bc-taken-und-the-other-will-be-Ieft condi tion of things was noted in a lady's work basket. Thoy sav that tho nrrangsment. the order of things in the basket, has not been touched, and yet tbe scissors has been scorched and scaled, the bone ha? been burned from the crotchet needle, but tbe silk floss and zephyrs are just as they were left by the young lady when she w eat away for the summer. These results remind one of the fact that iu Pompeii afler the big Vesuvian fire, the colors remain just as bright on the frescoes as if the volcano had not discounted the provincial fire department There is no accounting for the freaks of fire. SOMETHING LIKE rOMPEHAN BELICS. By the way, people who visited the Italian exhibit at tho World's Fair will recall the con dition of tho bronzes in the Pompeiian collec tion. There uro many things at tbe Knox lire cirlo-Ity shop that will remind them of what they saw from abroad, for there are mauy local bronzes iu the veteran Pompeiian con dition. Two of them especially on the west side suggest the humors nnd the gravity o! the scene. One of theso is a design, two bronze figure. In a loving embrace, a trouba dour and his companion with a tambourine. They have been done to death by the fire, and they are looking quite sadly ov er a chaotic collection of chinas nnd porcelain through which the mrtcphorical bull ran riot on the night of the fire. The other, quite near this melancholy group, is a Mercury. He is stand ing on bis bead, with his winged heels in the air, a type of topsy-turvey, Rnd tkeeerlast ing bouleverscment that takes placo when fire ana water contend lor the masteryr On one side or a china cup you rend very plainly "Think of Me," while the other side 13 almost reduced to lime. A lady looked at an Immeu'e pile of burned books with shriv eled leaves and charred covers and suid: "I wonder if I'll ever find our Bible." There is no telling. It may be safe aud sound in some place where the Decameron and Don Juan fiHe bad n premature eternity of the kind to be expected. There is no telling what may or may not be recovered In this pHce where a crucifix is burned out of all semblance to Itself and a lady's brocade looks as fresh and fnir as if she bad just laid it aside.

For my life I could not tell why I thought so, but as the hours went by it grew on me that an 'event' was drawing toward its culmination. "After mldn'gbt matters began to change, Montgomery losing heavily and Clifford win ning. The beta grew heavier with each band and once or twice I felt inclined to protest against such plunging. But 1'ettlngill, who seemed to see ahead mora clearly than I did, gave me a look that held me silent. "Montgomery was well supplied with money and for a long time paid his losses In casta. But finally he took out bis bank book, wrote a check and passed It to Clifford in settlement and aiked bint If that was satisfactory.

Jlauy are pos sessed of generous ImpuUes, and warm affec tions, and wish to communicate with some kindred spirit, with the view of settling down to a steady borne life but are forced to postpone putting into practice this commendable desire, and the best aspirations of their natures forever lie dormant, simply because they bave been so 'unfortunate as ro have missed the opportunities of procuring an education, and tbey know of no one to whom they can go for help. These are a few of the reasons why I bave opened a Bureau of Correspondence so that all can come and con ndentiaUy make their want known and get assistance. L. M. LOG. 1 1 Room 5, No. 6117thet.n.w.

Jett-2m paler tban usual, and with a deliberate calcu lation that meant ruin to his adversary 11 he could compass It. Presently Montgomery paused and made a hasty calculation In his bank book; he hesitated a moment after this and thon said quietly to Clifford: " 'I hare no more money. I would like to have another chance if you will let me. My private collection ot paintings Is worth 85,000.' "He looked at Clifford Inquiringly, not put ting his question Into words. 'All right,' said tbe other briefly and the gam went on.' "I began to get nervous, not knowing where it would end and looked at my watch. It was 3:20. I went to tbe window and could see a faint streHk of gray light in the East. I was thankful for that, for I believed the garish iluj light, which would soon be upon us, would bring tbe men to their senses and stop th" play. I thought Montgomery's pun ishment had already been severe enough. "While standing by the window I heard a sharp oath, and turned quickly enough to sea Montgomery throw down bis card and settle) back In his chair with a look ot abject despair.

I bad not thought the man carried so much malice In his heart, and for a moment I liked him the less for It. But only for a moment. Montgomery sud denly started. "'I bave one thing more, he said', 'tho promise of Bachael .Morris to be my wife. If I lose Dow, I leave you a clear Held.' "Clifford rose quietly from tbe table. "You hear this, gentleman?' ha said. 'This cur has dragged the name of a lady Into a game ot cards. This bound,' be paused, I thought to give the other change to resent his words, 'this bound,' he repeated slowly, 'has managed to get Dan Morris in his debt. He has agreed to cancel the obligations it his daughter would marry him. This, tbe brave girl. In a moment of despair, consented to do. This cur,' he paused again, 'holds her to this promise. And now he offers it as a stake upon a game of cards.' "Clifford seemed to grow in stature as he spoke and the other to shrink to the propor tions ol a pigmy.

She Is to be married to Clifford this evening. I must go and dress. I am to be best man. That Is my reward tot remaining an old beau."
