2d Session


DECEMBEB 7, 1906–Referred to the House Calendar and ordered to be printed.

Mr. SAMUEL W. Smith, from the Committee on the District of

Columbia, submitted the following


[To accompany H. R. 20178.]

The Committee on the District of Columbia, to whom was referred the bill (H. R. 20178) in relation to the Washington Market Company, report the same back to the House with the recommendation that it do pass.

The purpose of the proposed legislation is to permit the Washington Market Company to manufacture ice at any suitable place within the District of Columbia. There is some doubt as to whether the company has authority to do this under the powers granted in the act approved May 20, 1870, incorporating the Washington Market Company, and your committee can see no objection to allowing the company the privilege of manufacturing ice at some place away from the present grounds and buildings. The quantity of produce now stored in the market buildings is very large and constantly increasing, and the space now used for making ice is wanted for the storage of produce, while the ice needed can be more advantageously manufactured elsewhere.

This measure has the approval of the Commissioners of the District of Columbia, as will be seen by the following communication: OFFICE COMMISSIONERS OF DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA,

Washington, June 18, 1906. DEAR SIR: The Commissioners of the District of Columbia have the honor to submit the following on House bill 20178, Fifty-ninth Congress, first session, “ In relation to the Washington Market Company,” which you referred to them for examination and report.

The object of the bill is to authorize the Washington Market Company, in addition to its other corporate powers, to manufacture ice in connection with its market business.

The Wasington Market Company was incorporated by an act of Congress approved May 20, 1870, to carry on a market business and the powers granted in the act of incorporation are generally those pertaining to market companies. The Commissioners are informed that there being some doubt as to the right of the company under its present charter to manufacture ice this legislation is desired. It is stated that a great deal of ice is needed for market purposes, which can be more adeguately and economically furnished to dealers by the market company than could otherwise be obtained.

The Commissioners know of no objection to the granting of the additional privilege contemplated in the bill to the market company. Very respectfully,

President of the Board of Commissioners

of the District of Columbia. Hon. J. W. BABCOCK, Chairman Committee on the District of Columbia,

House of Representatives.
