I0?II DAY POSTPONED
Kcv Postoffice Building Is De
clared to Be Unfinished,
INDIGNANT AT THE BELAY
A Lively Controversy Is tn I'roprrcMS
AVlicrcin Mr. Steivnrt'M Men Cov
ertly Tlirenteii to Drop HrlcltN anil
Thiiiu'.s on the PnstiimNter'N Em
ployes X Sutltifaclory Explana
tion Offered.
The plans for the removal of the cleri
cal force and office furniture from the old
postoffice building in G Street to the new
city postoffice were again changed yes
terday. It is now probable that the re
moval of the office will not occur until
some time next month.
The local postoffice officials are prepared
to move at once, -but the Supervising
Architect of the Treasury, who has made
promise after promise regarding the date
when the removal could be made, has
again postponed the transfer, owing to
the fact that the new building, he says,
is not yet ready tor occupancy.
Incidental to these annoying postpone
ments to which the local postoffice men
are being-subjected, there is a lively fight
in progress between Superintendent Stew
art, of the new building and officials of
the Union building, the location of the
present postoffice.
Mr. Stewart and his workmen claim
that the new building Is not yet ready for
occupancy, for the reason that a great
deal of work must be done on the upper
stories, especially in those parts immedi
ately over the rotunda in the middle of
the structure, before a clerical force can
be moved into the place.
They claim that particles of brick,
lathings and scantlings are constantly
falling from the upper part of the build
ing to the floor below, and that it would
be dangerous to life and limb for clerks
and citizens to be engjged In the transac
tion of business there.
"This stuff Is constantly falling below,"
said one of the workmen to a local post
office official yesterday. "Perhaps, you
don't bPlieve it." he continued with a sar
castic smile. "If you come into the build
ing and walk across the floor maybe we
may be able to drop a brick or two from
the" upper stories just to show you that
you are not the whole thing."
Mr. Stewart has evidently declared war
on the local officials who are attempting
to push the work on the building. His
purpose, according to the offieiais, is to
delay the completion of the new building
as long as possible and every time he is
questioned regarding the progrs of the
work he gives an evasive reply.
Mr. Kemper, the executive officer of the
supervising architect's office, said yester
day that he expected the building would
be ready for occupancy by the m'ddle of
October. t
"There is considerable work to be done
yet on -the building," said Mr. Kemper.
"The ways leading to the entrances have
yet to be completed, and there is also
considerable plumbing to be done. It will
lake several weeks yet, and, perhaps. It
may be some days later than October
15. before the building is completed."
When acquainted with Mr. Kemper's
statement the local postoffice men becane
indignant.
"Yes," declared one of these gentle
men, "that is the same old story we have
heard for the last eighteen months. At
first It was: 'We will be ready for you
by April 1.' When April 1 came around
we were put off again. 'Walt until Sep
tember 15,' the Treasury people would
say, and so on. It has been nothing but
delay, delay and delay.
"I can't see why the Treasury Depart
ment don't Ax a definite date. They meet
us with a smile and tell us they are
anxious to put us into the new building.
We get the glad hand, but the results
amount to nothing. "We are ready to
move at any time. Of course It will re
quire some time before we can remove
the whole force, but we are prepared to
begin at once."
Tho superintendent of the Treasury has
already moved a quantity of furnituro
into the new building, which has been
stored at convenient points along the
corridors. Even the electric lights have
been put in, but there remains some mys
terious work to be done in remote por
tions of the building.
Assistant Secretary Vanderlip is pre
pared to move the small force of Treas
ury clerks which yet remains in the new
building completing the clerical work of
the recent bond issue. This force is very
small, a majority of the clerks retained
In the service having already been trans
ferred to temporary desks in the corri
dors of the Treasury Building.
The official conduct of Mr. Stewart as
the superintendent of construction of the
new building is now under investigation
by the Treasury Department.
Charges against Mr. Stewart were pre
ferred some time ago by Joseph F. Hur
dle, a sub-contractor engaged on the post
office, and others. Mr. Stewart was
chaged with utter incompetency. The
matter was taken up by Solicitor O'Con
nell of the Treasury, who has been Jn
vestlgating th'e subject. He Is expected
to render a decision to Assistant Secre
tary Spaulding in a few days.
PECULIAR POISONS.
GEXERATED IS THE HCM.VX BODV,
The KcMnlt of Imperfect Digestion
of Pood.
Every living thing, plant or animal,
contains within itself the germs of cer
tain decay and death.
In the human body these germs of dis
ease and death (called by scientists
Ptomaines), are usuaily the result of im
perfect digestion of food, the result of
indigestion or dyspepsia.
The stomach, from abuse, weakness,
does not promptly and thoroughly digest
the food. The result is a heavy, sodden
mass which ferments (the first process of
decay) poisoning the blood, making It
thin, weak, and lacking in red corpuscles;
poisoning the brain, causing headaches
and palu In the eyes.
Bad digestion Irritates the heart, caus
ing palpitation and finally bringing on
disease of Ihis very important organ.
Poor digestion poisons the kidneys,
causing Brisht's disease and diabetes.
And this is so because every organ,
every nerve depends upon the stomach
alone for nourishment and renewal; and
weak digestion shows itself not only In
.loss of appetite and flesh, but in weak
nerves and muddy complexion.
The great English scientist, Huxley,
said the best start in life is a sound
stomach. Weak stomachs fail to digest
food properly, because they lack the pro
per quantity of digestive acids (lactic
and hydrochloric) and peptogenic pro
ducts; the most sensible remedy In all
cases of indigestion Is to take after each
meal one or two of Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets, because they supply in a pleas
ant, harmless form all the.,elements that
weak stomachs lack.
The regular use of Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets will cure every form of stomach
trouble except cancer of the stomach.
They Increase flesh, Insure pure blood,
strong nerves, a bright eye and clear
complexion, because all these result only
from wholesome food well digested.
Nearly all druggists sell Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tablets at 50 cents full sized
package or by mail by inclosing price to
Stuart Co., Marshall, aiich., but ask your
druggist first.

Dester M. del Garcia is a new society
novelist, who is about to make his lit
erary debut in a romance, entitled "Two
Washington Belies." A new York critic.
In reviewing the book, says: The story
shows a careful study of Ouida, and has
a trifle too much of the servant girl's
admiration for titles and high-sounding
names. All the characters are painted In
the most lurid colors, and all move on a
top-lofty plane, and in a "light that never
was on sea or land." The average reader
of the romance familiar at all with the
modish worlds of Washington and New
York will have littp difficulty in recog
nizing Miss Julia Grant as one of the
heroines.
Tne astonishing frequency with which
rumors of a matrimonial variety ' get
themselves into print these days is only
equaled by the promptness with which
they are denied. The latest contradiction
comes from Miss Virginia Fair, who
characterizes the story of her engage
ment to Willie R. Vanderbllt, jr., as ab
surd. Mrs. John Eastwood Is visiting her
mother, Mrs. Lucy Young, at Berryville,

OBJECCS TO THE MARKET.
Xuthunicl Tyler Ank for il Lepral
II cn train ill f? Order.
Nathaniel Tyler, jr., filed proceedings in
equity yesterday asking that John F.
Waggaman and Charles E. Banes be re
strained and enjoined from converting or
using in any manner, or permitting any
other person to use the property known
as the Washington Riding Academy
Building for a market or for market pur
poses until they file with the Inspector of
buildings for the District of Columbia the
written consent of the owners of more
than one-half of the property In the
square In which the building is located.
Mr. Tyler in his petition alleges that
the defendants are about to open a mar
ket in the building described, in violation
of the building regulations of the District,
Mr. Tyler says he is the owner of a house
opposite the Riding Academy and that
the opening of a market there would
greatly damage the value of his property.
He also says that about eight months ago
the defendants procured a permit to do
general repairs on the Riding Academy
Building and six months thereafter be
gan to convert the building into a mar
ket. In addition to the defendants above
named it is the intention of Mr. Tyler to
make the renters of stalls In the proposed
new market building party defendants in
this suit.
Justice McComas issued a rule com
manding the defendants to show cause on
October 4 why the injunction should not
be made permanent.

Our New Credit Way.
In the same building that we were at the start, but that's all. We began, we prospered as a clothing
establishment and until last year continued as such. Then we bought out our partner's interest in the busi
ness and began at once to carry out our own ideas. Our ambition was to have a store for women as well as for
men. And just a year ago we placed as an experiment a line of suits, cloaks and skirts. That was all. We
hadn't the room for more. Besides we entered a new field, and we wanted to tread our way with care.
We Changed Our Business From Cash to a Credit Basis.-
We inaugurated a system of time payment so fair and so just, so sensible and plausible that success re
warded our venture. Success, complete and instantaneous. Today there are over ten thousand names on our
books. Ten thousand families who have benefited by the helping arm that we held out.
Emboldened by the flattering and generous responses made to our advances, we determined to enter boldly
into a still more extended business. And within the past four months we have added a new floor and fifteen
new departments. A veritable a complete department store awaits you today. Everything that man,
however fastidious he be, can desire.
You'll find a line of Coats and Jackets and Suits and Skirts that have more sweilness and more style about
them, that are better made and priced lower than any store, cash or credit, in all Washington. We'll greet you
with the richest Silk Waists with the handsomest Oloth and Silk and Satin Skirts with the best picked out
(if not the largest) lot of Wrappers and House Gowns. They're the old departments, the ones that celebrate
their birthday today. But we want you to go up on the fourth floor, there's where you'll be surprised. The
newly added lines are there. The famous makes of Corsets the nobbiest and the standard brands of Hosiery
a wonderful aggregation of everything that goes to make up a perfect notion stock. We'll sell you Table Linens
that no store can outrival in quality none can equal in price. A display of Eugs and Lace Curtains, too. A
stock of Blankets and Bedwear. Every famous make of Women's and Children's Underwear. Handkerchiefs
that run along the whole gamut of quality.
(for there are half a dozen now) throw down the gantlet to all competition. Men's and Boys' Clothing, Men's
Hats, Men's Furnishings, Dress Coats, Top Coats, Reefers, Storm Coats we'll outfit you from your hose to your
hat. Jewelry, too, on credit. Only the very finest, because a business like this necessitates makes that give
complete satisfaction.
Opening Begins Today and Lasts Until Saturday
during that period we offer the following special values (cash or credit) and defy all the world to equal them.

Amv Mnrle NorrlH. AllCRed Shop
lifter, W1H Be Tried Today.
With eighteen charges of grand larceny,
petit larceny, larceny from a building
and larceny from the person, against her.
Amy Marie Norris, tlie alleged shoplifter,
will face her accusers in Judge Scott's
court today.
The Norris yoman will see, arranged
upon the desk 'or the judge, the $1,300
worth of watches, diamonds, rings and
other jewels which she is said to have
purloined from the merchants of the city.
The police say that the fact of her hav
ing deliberately pawned the articles and
spent the money makes impossible any
plea of kleptomania, and they are in hope
that she will plead guilty.
