About the New Bows.
THE Palais Roval is the best source of supply because the Bow

Hndnnt's and Le Fevre's Toilet Articles.
The l'alais Royal's pre-eminent position is the outcome of honest dealing?of never tolerating sub
stitutes. The great "Hudnut" of New York and "Le Fevre" of Philadelphia naturally sought the Palais
Roval as their Washington representatives. With their and other best toilet articles as specialties; and
with prices as little and less than asked for the "just as good" substitutes is it a wonder the Palais
Royal enjoys the patronage of Washington's elite?

HEARING COMES TO A CLOSE.
Court Directs Jury to Return Verdict
In the case of Brown against the Com
mercial Fire Insurance Company, which has
t?>on on trial in Circuit Court No. 1. before
Chief Justice Bingham, for the last eight
d.ys. the court yesterday directed the Jury
to return a verdict in favor of the defend
ant. The suit was brought by the plaintiff
as trustee under a deed of trust to recover
1^.500 upon a policy of insurance, as dam
ases to the stock of goods insured and
covered by the deed of trust. From the
evidence It appeared that in September,
1SUS. Parker and Walker, the owners of a
shoe store, insured their stock, and within
a month thercaftur gave a deed of trust to
the plaintiff. A'.Kmt one month thereafter
the stock was totally de.-troyed. and after
tlie fire the policy was presented by Urowu
to the company, which indorsed the policy,
nuking the loss payable to him as trustee*.
Subsequently th-i company refused to pay
and suit was instituted. The company
claimed that the policy was made null anil

policy; that the policy being under sesl. the

he was not. but only the appointee or re

of action to recover in his own name, ard
?Iso because ethers were interested in the
recovery and were not parties plaintiff.
On behalf of the plaintiff it was c >n

Commissioner Boss Discusses Matter
of Overcrowding Vehicles.
The District Commissioners have decided,
as stated In The Star several days ago, to
make an adverse report on the bills in
Congress providing that street cars shall
not be filled beyond their actual seating
capacity. Commissioner Ross has agreed
with the two other Commissioners concern
ing the Inadvisabllity of the law at this
time, but thinks eventually there should
be such a law. as well as other statutes
giving the Commissioners supervision of
street railway matters.
"The subject." says Commissioner Ross,
"has assumed such proportions that it 1s
difficult for the Commissioners, with their
present force, to give It the careful consid
eration which its importance demands. It
seems to me that the time has arrived for
the creation under the District government
of a department of transportation, which
should have entire charge of all matters
relating to steam and street railways, and
possibly to her dies, hack and ex
press service. Perhaps the most speedy
way of securing such a result would be by
requesting the detail of another assistant
to the Engineer Commissioner, as author
ised by law. in order that one of tlis offi
cers so detailed ceuld devote his exclusive
attention to such a department. Such de
tals have always resulted In the most effi
cient superintendence. If for any reason
that cannot be done, I would suggest the
propriety of asking Congress for an appro
priation sufficient to secure the services of
an able and experienced superintendent at
an adequate salary, who would give his
entire time to the public side of this ques
tion. wVfch power to enforce, under the di

Asked of Congress.
The alleged Injustice of the present anti
smoke law In.the District of Columbia was
taken up for discussion by the committee

ing to be held in a few days, and the board
will ask Congress to enact a bill in line

A LEADING FEATURE.
Transactions In Lanston Monotype
Stock in Local Exchange.
Yesterday and today Eanston Monotype
stock was the leading feature on the Wash
ington stock exchange, judging from the
volume of th? sales. About 3,500 shares
were dealt in yesterday, and somewhat
more than that number were bought and
sold today. Wednesday the stock sold for
ll'a. yesterday it advanced to 13*4 and to
day the highest point reached was 14%. The
activity in this stock, which is a source of
surprise to a good many brokers. Is ex
plained variously. Some claim that the
much discussed project of a merging of the
typesetting companies Is among the pos
sibilities. while others are of the opinion
that the business of the company has im
proved. There are also those who look
ui>on the movement as speculative.
