To the Editor of The Times:
Knowing you are always in favor of
every needed relorm and take pleasure in
its advocacy, I write concerning funeral
charges. My attention has beent called to
a monopoly, known as the "Undertakers'
Trust," which should appeal to all. citizens
and their sense of justice. When bereave
ment weighs heavily upon one's mind, "the
fact that one is .being robbed docs not
present itself. When your loved one is
lying a corpse it is no time to question
the exorbitant prices of the "funeral di
rector and embalmer," sn the price is paid
because of a dislike to question its equity.
E-erything needed for a pioper buiial is
placed at the higi.cst price, especially the
mourning goods, for which excessive
charge is made all over the world. The
undertakers of this and other cities are
amassing" more wealth than other business
callings, considering the capital invested.

the society, botli as to Individual bands
and as a whole, has hada prosperous year,
the amount raised for the annual home
mission Tund being $0,924.24. The elec
tion or officers for the ensuing year was
accompanied by none or tiie excitement
characteristic of like contests, as the
present incumbents were unanimously
requested to continue in the positions
they have so acceptably filled during their
past terms ot service.
During the forenoon a collection was
taken up Tor the bcuerit of the contingent
fund ror the general expenses of the
united society, and at 1 o'clock the 200
or more members or the various societies
or tiie District present were invited to
the Sunday school room in the basement,
where a bountiful collation was served by
the ladies or the Saw York Avenue Church.
Miss Crissey, chairman or the entertain
ment committee, assisted by members of

the guests, and also acted as ushers up
stairs throughout the morning and after

of tiie State.

BHOUGHT BACK TO X.1FH
Thomas Overton Had Cea.sed to
Breathe for Five Minutes.
Artcr Thomas Overton had ceased to
breathe Tor fully five minutes the sur
geons at the Emergency Hospital, Drs.
Lawrence, Turner and Hooe. resuscitated
the man and brought him back to life.
It was a skillful application of medical
science, and may prevent the crime of
murder being charged against Clurence
Landon. Then Dr. Lawrence trephined
Overton's skull where he was hit with a
brick thrown by Landon, and although
the man is in -a very serious condition, lc
is possible he may yet survive.
Overton and Landon are both colored
men and employed at the District dump
at the corner ot Twenty-first and B
streets northwest. They were engaged iu
sorting over the garbage about 3 o'clock
yesterday afternoon, when Overton found
a trinket of some small value and con
fiscated it. This enraged Landon, who
also laid claim to the finding, and a
quarrel ensued. Blows were at last re
sorted to, and Landon seized a brick and
threw it with great force at Overton,
striking him in the back of the head and
felling him unconscious to the ground.
The police ambulance from the Third pre
cinct was called and removed the injured
man to the Emergency Hospital. The
man's skull was horribly fractured and
parts of the bone pressed down upon his
Landon escaped arter the assault, and
up to a late hour last night had not been
captured. Overton's recovery is doubtful.
Epworth League Orators.
The fourth annual oratorical contest, to
take place this evening at Wesley Chapel,
corner of Fifth and F stieets, promises to
be very cntliusinstlcand enjoyable. Each
chapter represented is very desirous of
bringing glory upon itself, and Waugu
Chapter, which at present holds the lau
rels, is equally anxious not to let them
slip from It. This contest will take the
place of the usual monthly mass meeting
of the District Epworth League, and thus
every chapter in the city will be even more
interested. Hainline, Metropolitan and
Wangli have had champion orators, and it
remains for this evening's contest to de
cide who will have the honor during the
coining year. The judges in the contest
are- In thought and composition, Mr.
Justice Brewer. Mrs. Elizabeth J. Somers,
Mr. Hairy L. West; in delivery, Senator
Cannon, Rev. J. E. Bankin, D. D., and J.
J. Darlington. An interesting program of
music will be interspersed between the
orations, and altogether the contest will
prove one of the features of Epworth
League work during the present season.
Burglaries Heported to the Police.
Two cases of housebreaking in the
night were reported to inspector Iloliin
berger yesterday. Burglars forced an entry
into George J. Mucller'scourectionery store,
No. 33G Pennsylvania aveaue northwest,
and stole from the cash register between
$5 and $G in money.
The front, door of Charles L. Beatty's

Xo action was taken yesterday by Lieut.
Swindells, of the Georgetown precinct, in
the case of liosa Neuse, the five-year-old
child, who was alleged to have been
criminally assaulted by two boys, near
her father's canal-boat, on Wednesday, as
told in The Morning Times. The boys will
not be arrested unless the father, Capt.
John Neuse, decides to swear out a war

UYSTERY-' OF A, TRtJXK.
It Contained $500 Worth of Goods
nnd Was Stolen March 2.
The detectives are in a state of per
plexity about the trunk of MrsJS. B.
Brown of No. 359 .Firth avenue, New
York, which mysteriously disappeared from
a push cart at the Sixth street depot on
March 2. The trunk contained clothing
and valuables tothe amountot about$500.
Mrs. Brown reached this city over the
B. & 0. Railroad ion the day mentioned,
and gave the check for her trunk to John
Dorsey, porter for the Metropolitan Hotel,
to be carried to No. 1708 Nineteenth
street. Dorsoy having a full load, of
baggage on his wagon, gave the -check
to Seymour Alexander, a colored push
cart man. Alexander shopped at the Sixth
street station to get another trunk, and
while he was in the baggage room, In
spector Hollinberger says, Mrs. Brown's
trunk disappeared as mysteriously from
the push cart as though the ground had
opened and .swallowed It. Detectives
have been working on the case, but they
have absolutely no clew to the missing
trunk, and as Alexander is an honest man
he Is not buspected of the theft.
