Robert S Dutton Chief Knslnccr of the
Fire Department yesterday submitted to
the Commissioners his schedule of esti
mates for the lineal 3 car endins June M
11K13 Mr Dutton estimates the total ex
pense of the department for that year in
cluding the establishment of 6ix new
companies at 70K0 This he says Is
an excess over the expenditure of the
present fiscal year of fill M0 tho differ
ence being that of the total estimates sub
mitted and the amount provided in ap
propriations for the current year The es
timates add something to all silaries of
the department and thirty four new pri
vates of the second class are provided
for With reference to the schedule Mr
Dutton says
The largest item of increase 120OQ0t
represents the sites houses and furni
ture for the six new compaples and the
school of instruction The site house
and furniture of one of these that at Con
gress Heights have already been provid
ed for and only the apparatus and men
for that one remain to be secured These
additional companies are badly needed
In fact the District Tire Department is
just about half the size it should be The
department covers a territory of sixty
nine square miles and counting the
Brookland company which will be estab
lished thi fall each company acrages a
district to ba cove ed by It of 2S7 square
miles almost double that covered by a
company in Xew York and Philadelphia
three times greater than a companys ter
ritory In Baltimore Buffalo Cincinnati
or New Orleans four times larger than
those of Milwaukee and LouisilIe com
panies about six times rrore extensive
than the districts covered by a San Fran
cisco company and about seven times
greater than a Boston company covers
Of the additional companies asked for
the one most badly needed Is tho truck
company proposed to be located in the
sojthcastcrn section of the city In all
this section there is but one truck com
pany Truck A located on North Capitol
Street between B and C Jn this part of
the city and District are located St Eliza
beths Insane Asylum Iroyidenco Hospi
tal the Naval Hospital the German Or
phan Asylum jail and many public
schools all dependent upon a single truck
company on a first alarm
The next company in point of desirabil
ity Is an engine company in the south
western section of the city In which sec
tion despite its extensive territory and
the presence therein of many valuable
structures there is but one engine com
pany locate1 There should be another es
tablished in this portion of the city at the
earliest possible day An engine company
in the northeastern section of the city is
perhaps the next company most badly
needed and hardly less badly needed Is
an engine company between Seventeenth
Strttt and Jtock Creek and south of H
Street Finally a chemical engine compa
ny in Good Hope
The appropriation of o000 for a school
of instruction Is earnestly recommended
There Is no such school here and men
appointed to the department enter it as a
rule without any Instruction whatever in
fire righting duties In several of the
larger cities of this country such schools
have been established with most desira
ble results The establishment of the pro
posed school would it is believed add
very greatly to the efficiency of the de
partment
Tp carry into effect the desire of the
honorable Commissioners that the head
of the Fire Department shall be sn ex
ecutive officer the position Is designated
In the estimates submitted herewith as
Superintendent and their suggestion that
this officer shall receive an annual salary
of not less than 3000 is adopted The
making of he chief officer of the Dis
trict Fire Department which has develop
ed into a great and constantly growing
business concern a purely executive one
is In harmony with the course pursued
by other leading cities of this country
and Is really no new departure here as
several years ago the business affairs of
the department were transacted by a
Board of Fire Commissioners
The Senior Assistant ChleJC Engineer of
the District Fire Department has been
since the retirement May 1 1901 of Chief
Parris its flre Hghting head This officer
it is proposed to designate as Chief En
gineer and the salary recommended
2109 per annum would it is respectfully
submitted be but fair compensation for
so worthy and competent an officer
An additional Assistant Chief Engin
eer Is askeU for and It Is recommended
that the salaries of these officers be in
creased from 12 to 1500 per annum
It Is recommended that the salary of
the Fire Marshal be increased from 1000
to 1600 per annum This officer Is one
of the most Important and necessary in
the service of the municipality He oc
cupies a position of great responsibility
and should be a man well acquainted with
the construction of buildings of ripe ex
perience and energy
An assistant to the Fire Marshal at
1200 per annum is recommended It has
been found necessary to provide the Fire
Marshal with an assistant in order that
the Iiwh and regulations made for the
prevention of fires could be properly en
forced a private in the department having
been detailed for the purpose

Lnfnjctte Voniis Mr WInllirop
The production of Youns Sirs VVln
throp by the Lafayette ttock company
last night ushered in the llnal week of
the present season at the Ucrecr house
and those of the companys clientele who
hae not as yet abandoned their town
houses in favor of the mountains or sea
shore will most likely embrace a last op
portunity of seeing the Lafuyette players
in an entertaining bill The current offer-
Ins is from the pen of Bronson Howard
to whom the stace is indebted for Shen
andoah and Aristocracy that brilliant
satire on social high life In writing
Young Mrs Wlnthrop the authors mo
tive was plainly to paint the domestic
side of social life He has put into each
and every one of his characters disposi
tions inclinations and tendencies which
are absolutely true to those one meets
in the world day after day The play is
highly dramatic and is brimming over
with human nature both of which go
far to -make up for the old plot material
The estrangement of Constance and
Douglas AVInthrop and their Ultimate re
conciliation through tho bchemlng of an
old lawyer is prettily told and many
dainty and cleverly fashioned scenes are
employed throughout the entire play The
two leading character are undoubtedly
the most dllllqult to handle which cannot
as a rule be said of such parts There
Is absolutely nothing to them and their
interpreters are forced to re create them
For the rest each part acts Itself The
dashing society woman who is kept busy
getting married and dlvorceO is a bright
breezy type which while it may be a
trifle overdrawn lends a sparkle and
buoyancy to the play that Is very refresh
ing Then there Is the old family lawyer
a splendid example of his kind and to
offset these is the sympathetic role of the
blind girl whose lovable nature and sweet
reslgt atlon should go through the play
like a gleam of sunlight
Edwin Arden plays Douglas Wlnthrop
the young husband The only demand
which the part makes of an actor Is that
he should look arid act well bred Added
to this Mr Arden brought -his Intelligence
to bear with the results which invariably
mark his efforts He made Douglas Wln
throp an acting part something which
the author evidently never Intended that
it should be and his conception was thor
oughly natural and consistent In the
hands of an inefficient player the art
would easily be lost sight of in so much
as Its acting merits are involved but Mr
Ardens artistic touch is sufficient to give
prominence to an even lejs worthy role
He never falls to make the most of the
opportunities provided and when there
is none he promptly crestcs them of his
own will
Robert Ilogcrs Imbues the character of
Buxton Scott with more humor than dig
nity though he took good care of a pretty
scene with the young couple in the last
act Wright Kramer gave a commend
able performance as Herbert in love with
Kdlth and Myron Letflngwcil was a quiet
and dignified Dr Mellbanke Minnie Itad
cliffc played Constance the young wife
and did her best with the part which is
palpably lacking In opportunities liljou
Fernandez acted the role of Mrs Dick
Chetwyn the society devotee according
to her own idea of the part which for
tunately Is not of the stereotyped va
riety She gave a portrayal which was
thoughtful studied and quite out of tho
ordinary Iulse Mnckintoslrgato n sym
pathetic reading of the role of Mrs Ituth
Wlnthrop and repeated the favorable im
pression which she created earlier In the
season In similar roles Violet Kimball
plays Idith the blind girl Matinees

Dont Poison Baby
TpORTY YEARS AGO almost every mother thought her child must have
PAREGORIC or laudanum to make it sleep These drugs will produce
sleep and A FEW DROPS TOO MANY will produce the SLEEP FROM WHI01T
THERE IS NO WAKING Many are the children who have been killed or
whose health has been ruined for life by paregoric laudanum and morphine each
of which is a narcotic product of opium Druggists are prohibited from selling
either of the narcotics named to children at all or to anybody without labelling
them poison The definition of narcotic is A medicine which relieves pain
and produces sleep but which in poisonous doses produces stupor coma convulsions
and death The taste and smell of medicines containing opium are disguised
and sold under the names of Drops Cordials Soothing Syrups etc You
should not permit any medicine to be given to your children without you or

cessfully cares for A Trip to China
town and at yesterdays performances
scored a deserved hit All of the now
familiar characters were Interpreted In
a most satisfactory manner -while those
given opportunity as Otis Harlan In
Welland Strong John Dunne as Been
Gay and Little Chip as Noah Heep were
not onlj very funny but succeeded in se
curing local approval with novel special
ties The size of the audiences yester
day demonstrated that people will go to
see a good Hoyt comedy and the expres
sions of satisfaction proved that the re
sult of Mr Chases efforts were thor
oughly appreciated
The comedy has been bettered In many
ways for this production Paring In some
places and additions in others have re
sulted In an ideal hot weather entertain
ment which carries all the features of
continuous vaudeville through a laughable
farce which retains Interest from act to
act The specialties are all ciever many
of them being entirely new The scenery
was produced for the occasion and Is
fresh The costumes are all handsome
Among the meritorious specialties are
the rendition of Kegina Colli by a sex
tette in the first act Attlla Is given
In a superb manner by a trio Little Chip
as Noah Heep the waiter won the hon
ors In the sccord act with his clever
work He has a new dance which Is
unique and worth seeing Otis Harlan
and Henriette Lee secured six encores in
their Quaker Song many of the local
hits being appreciated Eva Burnham is
a clever dancer and won praise for her
work Mary Marble covers a clever se
ries of male specialties as Willie Grow
As a laugh maker the production could
hardly be improved upon and with the
exception of the curtain raiser in the first
act there Is- not a slow moment In the
three acts Too much praise cannot be
given Messrs Harlan Dunne Hart
Lee and Little Chip in their va
rious roles Th comedy his seldom been
given a more elaborate or morj satisfac

THE KESIG1TATIOH ACCEPTED
Cnptnln StrnnirH ltetiueit Granted on
Order From Secrctnry RootT
The resignation of Capt Putnam Brad
leo Strong who figured In th scandal In
connection with Lady Frances Hope in
San FVanclsco last week was accepted
yesterday afternoon by tho War Depart
ment This action was taken by Colonel
Sanger Assistant Secretary of War npon
ftceipt of a telegram from Secretary Root
directing him to do so
After Secretary Hoot haJ wired Captain
Strong that It- would be necessary for
him to send In his resignation through
the regular channels the latter replied
that he had placed his written resignation
In the hands of General Young the com
manding officer of the Department of Cal
ifornia and had set forth his reasons for
so doing General Young also informed
the department that Captain Strong had
resigned with the required formality nnd
this Information was communicated to
Secretary Boot who had requested Gen
eral Young for Information as to Cap
tain Strongs conduct Late yesterday af
ternoon he wired Mr Sanger to accept
the resignation and a telegram stating
that this had been done was sent to Gen
eral Young and Captain Strong
In nrmy circles this nctlon Is commend
ed as the best way out of an unfortunate
episode It is contended upon behalf of
Captain Strons that he had a right to
resign at any time and Inasmuch as a
court martial would attract unnecessary
attention to a scandal It was deemed best
to allow him to resign and close the In
cident without further controversy
Captain Strong was to have sailed to
day for Manila on the transport Grant
Lady Hope has also canceled her ar
rangements to sail for Hongkong on tho
Nippon Maru which leaves San Fran
cisco on Wednesday
