The last (lays of summer will soon be in sight. Early fall will then be the Beau Brummell of the
season. We are working very hard to finish our improvements, so when that beautiful time of all the year has
full control and forces back home all our missing friends and patrons this shopping centerwill present a scene
so beautiful and magnificent in the display of goods and decorations that every one will view with astonish
ment the wonderful change brought about in such a short period. In the meantime we have belittled the bal
ance of our summer stock with prices so small that they cry with shame of being seen in print.

BROOKS TELLS HIS STORY.
The Colored Man Accused of Murder
at AtihgroTe, Vft.
William H. Brooks, the young colored
man who is charged in Fairfax county,
Virginia, with having shot and killed Will
lam Harris, and also with having shot Har
vey Clay in the arm, as published in yes
terday's Star, was arrested late yesterday
afternon by Detectives Hartigan and Lacy.
The officers found him working as a waiter
at a club house on Brightwood avenue. He
admitted his Identity, admitted he had fired
one shot and returned to Virginia today
with Deputy Sheriff A. R. Jacobs. The
Virginia officer took him to Fairfax Court
House, the county seat, and lodged him in
Jail. He had a warrant for Brooks that
was sworn out by Sheriff Gordon yesterday
charging him with murder.
The county grand jury will meet next
Monday, and Brooks may be given a trial
next month. He had not learned of the
death of Harris until after his arrest, and
he claimed that he fired only one shot, al
though It is alleged that two bullets took
effect, one in the man who has since di6d
and one in Harvey Clay. The prisoner
says he intended to kill Clay, and gave the
officers his reason for the attempt.
Brooks formerly lived near Ashgrove,
where the shooting occurred. He came
here several months ago and was employed
as a driver for the express firm of Little
field & Alvord. Recently he went to work
at the club house as a waiter. In conver
sation with the detectives Brooks said he
went to his former home Tuesday night
and attended a social gathering at the Shl
loh Baptist Church, where there were two
bands of the members engaged in rising
funds for the church. His father ana
brother belonged tc one band, he said,
while Harvey Clay belonged to the other.
There was trouble at the social gathering,
and Brooks said he was warned that his
brother would probably get hurt. He went
into the church, according to his state
ment, and saw his brother with blood
streaming from his face. Harvey Clay, he
said, had a revolver in his hand and he
(Brooks) took his weapon from his pocket
and fired one shot. He says he had no In
tention of shooting Harris. The shooting,
he said, occurred about 2 o'clock In the
morning, and he drove to this city in a
buggy, leaving Ashgrove shortly after the
shot was fired.
Deputy Sheriff Jacobs says he was In
formed that Brooks had once before had
trouble over In the country, and that he
went back because of a difficulty he had

WANTS NAME RETAINED.
Mr. Green's Protest Agnlnit New Ap
pellation for Roanoke Street.
W. H. Green, assistant general manager
of the Southern railway, has written the
Commissioners, protesting against the pro
posed change in the name of Roanoke
street. Mr. Green says: I
"My residence Is 1327 Roanoke street, and
I am mortified to know you expect to
change the name of this street to Bryant.
I regret the necessity for making any
change In the name of our street, as I con
sider It one of the prettiest we have; still,
If you must carry out your alphabetical
Idea, then why not substitute one of the
following names for that of Bryant: Byrd,
Beach, Bacon, Biddle, Bull, Bedford, Balti
more, Buafalne, Buckingham, Buncomb,
Barnwell and Barnard? i
"Bryant means nothing, and would not
be spelled right half the time. If I should
tell one I lived on Bryant street he might
spell it that way, otherwise he would spell
It Bryan, and I have never heard of that
name being used for a street in any city.
I feel, of course, in making a change, that
all the property owners of our little street,
Roanoke, which is only about one block
long, as I understand it, should be con
sulted. Anything the majority of them
will agree upon will suit me, except Bryant,
and I don't think you will find a single one
will favor the name of Bryant."
The heaviest rain storm this season has
occurred in the vicinity of Presoott, Aris.

RETIRED ON PESSIOS.
Approval of Recommendation In Case
of Private Weat.
Commissioner Ross has approved the rec
ommendation of tne police retiring board
that Private W. H. West bo discharged
from the service of the Metropolitan pollca
force, and allowed a pension of $20 a
month.
This action settles a matter which haa
been before the police department for soma
time. Private West, who has been a mem
ber of the police force for thirty year*,
was tried Dy the trial board and found
guilty July 23 on the charge* of intoxica
tion and conduct unbecoming an officer.
The penalty recommended was a fine. At
that time Major Sylvester approved the
finding of the board, but considered the
penalty insufficient for the offense. In hi*
recommendation at that time, he said:
"Private West lias been a member of
the police force Cor thirty years, and, as
Lieut. Amiss and others state, early in hi*
police career rendered good service. In
later years, by reason of his advanced afe
and financial embarrassments, his efficiency
has been 1 mpaired. I have frequently
warned him against driving his horse at
tached to a sulky while In uniform, which,
on this occasion Initiated the trouble. With
in this period of thirty years Private West
has been disciplined on several occasions,
and 1 have to recommend that he be re
moved from the force. However, If the
Commissioners are disposed to extend him
mercy on account of his long *ervice, and
order his retirement, the amount allowed
him should be sufficiently reduced to mak?
it consistent with his Irregularities, the
reduction to operate as a penalty for h>s
violation of the regulations.
July 25 the Commissioners recommended
that Private West's case go before the re
tiring board. This board has found that
West is physically Incapacitated for duty
by reason of chronic rheumatism and bron
chitis. In the findings of the board appears
a statement by Wast, in which he says he
has two children under the age of sixteen
years, one a girl of fifteen and the other a
boy of ten.
