New York?WASHINGTON?Paris. Store will close each day (including Saturday) at 5:30 p.m. until further notice. An Important Reminiant Day. A remnant day is to us what housecleaning is to housekeepers?a time for clearing up and closing out. Tomorrow's remnant day, however, will be an unusually important one to us, because we want to close out completely every remnant in the house, also every article that is a bit summery, in order to start the new week with a fresh stock of new Fall Merchandise: to you, because to accomplish this we must neces sarily make the prices very low. Half prices are the rule. Less than half for many things. Some are soiled or mussed or otherwise im perfect. Some are just odds and ends?or short lengths, or broken sizes, or incomplete lines?and as good as they ever were.

Fifth floor, E la Tenth si. IS THE STATUTE A BAB? QUESTION REGARDING DUPLI CATE PAYMENTS OF TAXES. District Auditor Garrison Asks Advice and Question Will Probably Go to Attorney. Auditor John R. Garrison of the District has raised the question as to whether or not the statute ot limitations bars claims lor refunds of duplicate payments of taxes made more than three years ago. He has asked the advice of the Commissioners in the premises, and It is probable the matter will be referred to the corporation counsel for his legal opinion. The question has come up with reference to the application of F. A. Barbour for the refund of a duplicate payment of tax made on certain property In May. 11)00, the parcel of ground being located in Trinidad. After the statement of fact as to the duplicate payment had been verified by the assessor s office and the collector of taxes, the papers were sent to the auditor for consideration. "This Is a claim." says Auditor Garrison, "for refund of a duplicate payment of taxes on the same property, the first payment having been made May 14, l'JUO, and the second May 17, 1900. "The claim Is more than three years old, was not presented until September 1, 1903, and would be barred by the statute of limi tations, should the Commissioners hold th&t the statute shall be applied in cases of du plicate payments of taxes. "In the claim of Mrs. Helen V. Hills for erroneous payment of taxes arising from an excessive assessment In area of 414 square feet, on which excess taxes had been paid from Noveml>er 22, 1877. to May 31, 1902, by action of the Commissioners had March 30. March 31 and April 2, 1903, the statute of limitations was applied and the refund approved only for such portion of the claim as was not debarred by the statute of limitations.

The presence of Detectives Muller and Cornwell near the corner of 3d street and ^ Virginia avenue southwest about 10 o'clock last night probably prevented a murder. Two colored men were standing near a tree and the detectives heard one of the men threaten to kill the other, at the same time pulling a revolver from under his coat. After producing the gun the man caught sight of the detectives and ran into his house near by. The detectives followed and placed him under arrest. The gun, which was loaded, was a ,44-callber, and was found under a chair in the front room: The prisoner was sent to the fourth pre cinct police station, where he gave his name as William H. Mitchell. The man who was to be the possible victim said his name w.is James Bright. Mitchell claimed that his girl had transferred her affections to Bright. He was arraigned In the Police Court today on a charge of carrying a dan gerous weapon. He asked for a trial by jury, and hearing in the case was post -poned until a later date. OFFICERS CHOSEN.
