Paved With Good Resolutions.
The Neglected Home. Every head of a home knows that now is the time for housecleaning, and that one day's work now is more effective than t week of work later.

The home needs to be guarded with more than good irolutions. The Palais Royal Prices. Ice Safes for $2.98. Refrigerators, $4.98. The Palais Royal's regular prices are as little as the special sale prices of department stores and much less than at the specialty stores.

Attorney Wilton J. Lambert asked him concerning a diamond pin that was stolen in the police station. "I don't know anything about a pin that was stolen," he responded, with emphasis on the word stolen. The witness was withdrawn, after objec tion had been made by Attorney Mattingly and sustained by the board. Policeman Laleger, one of the defendans, was then examined respecting part of the testimony he gave at the hearing last week. He was asked if he. was on daty at the time he. had told of having been in the dormitory about the date the crap game is charged to have been'piayed. The testimony was ruled out. "Did you canl at Hilten's house last week?" AttorneyMgttingly asked. "I remeiber stopping by there one day," the witness answered. He denied that he had said anything to Hilten about what ie (Hilten) had said to Major Sylvester. Defendant repeated that he d!d not en gage in any game of- craps In the station. He also said he had. no "tanes" in his possession In the station and said he saw none on the bed. "If there had' been any on; the bed," he stated, "I think I would have seen them." The defendant said he could only ac count for Hilten's statement by saying the latter was prejudiced& So far as Clark is concerned, he stated, he thought he did not have as bright a mind as he should have. "If there was a question of Clark's san ity raised," said Laleger, "I should have to say I believe he is insane." He said he had told Clark he was crazy at the time he (Clark) struck Hilten. Testimony of F. D. Payne. Frank D. Payne appeared as a witness an dtold the trial board that he had con ducted a lunch room at 1209 32d street. He said that Policeman Hilten's reputation for truth and veracity is bad. "Would you .believe him under oath?" the witness was asked. "I don't know anything about him per sonally." he responded. Witness said, he had heard the officer's reputation discussed, in his (witness) place of business, but..could not give the name of a single individual who had dis cussed it, nor could he tell when he heard the discussion, He did say that the dis cussion was brought about by a talk about police matters. "Who asked you to come here and'testify against Mr. Hiton's reputation?" He said that Mr. Lalleger had asked him to go to Mr.. ambert's. Witness said he had been arrested for 'conducting a poker game and forfeited $25 collateral. Lal leger, he said. participated in the raid, which was conducted bg Sergt. Schneider. Hugh Clements testified that he recol lected the time that Hilton was on charges for "hoodling,"'and said Hilton wanted him to testify in the case for him. Hilton, he said, told him he would pay him for it. Witness said he had been a member of the police force and had resigned of his own free will. He said he had been be fore the court once for assault. "That is our case," said Mr. Lambert. He said he' would renew his motion that the charges be dismissed on the ground that the officers were not on duty at the time charged. His motion was overrule'], and Mr. Lambert noted an exception. Against Other Policemen "Then," said Mr. Sindair, "we will take up the case of Privates Walsh and Hoff man." In this case the charge is that they en gaged in a game of craps in the police sta tion, and that they afterward denied, un der oath, that they had done so. A third specification against Walsh alleges that he talked about the game charged. Policeman Howard P. Short was called and asked what he knew of a Crap game having been played in the station during the time covered in the charge. Witness said that some time about Christ mas he came off duty at 12 o'clock and went to the top floor.of the sation, where he sleeps. Witness said he saw "bones'' on a bed and Walsh and Hoffman were on opposite sides of the bed. "I saw no crap game played," he stated, "and I saw no money." Witness said he saw Walsh the next morning and he (Walsh) said he had won $72 or $73, and Hoffman had asked him for the loan of $40. Walsh asked him what he thought of It, and witness said he thought it was bad business, He told Walsh that he thought it would merely be a matter of loaning a man his own money. Did Not Hear "Crap." Witniess Laid he did not advi.c Walsh one way or the other about the matter. During the conversatior. about the winning of the money the witrzess etated, the word "crap" was not mentioned. "Howv many 'bones' did you see in th~e dormitory?" Mr. Sinclair asked. "Two," was his answer. Witness repeated that he did not see the men handle the "bones." That affair did not interest him enough, he said, for him to go over and look at it. Witness retired short ly afterward and could not say that the men engaged in a game. Witness was asked to state the exact language used by Walsh the morning after he had seen the "bones," and he said Walsh had told him that he had either "won" or "trimmed that young fellow of $72 or $73." There were four men in the room the night he saw the bones. Witness said he did not hear the conversation between the nr.en in the dormitory. "I didn't want to see if there was a game there that night," he admitted. Witness was asked:At he was not charged with the duty of arresting and prosecuting persons who play craps, but he made no response. I . - On cross-exarsinatkne witness said that "bones" are frlsuentil- taken -from pris oners, and it iaj:aot ,an unusual thing to see them about the station. He said he had never seen any gambling done in the station. "I might hav#eieari' some conversation between them," said Bhort, "but I don't know what it igg t.o wear to it positive ly." All witness krtew .tNut the money was what Walsh had ilem. Questioned by)jjr', Mattingly, witness ad mitted that hq had i&ad a conversation with Policemaa3Brown and said he told the latter that M (wi$iess) would tell the truth if ,called qma wtsess. Witness said he had told. ttggl Utaat of a money transaction the~* iIdenied that he had told anybody tMhadseen a crap game in the station. 'in,did- not remember that any superior oferhid urged lam not to say anything about a crap game in the station. Policeman John Koster testified that he knew nothing of a crap game havig been played in the dormitory of the station. He maid he did not see the "bones" oh the bed. "Did you ever hear of a crap gama being plaed in he.station?" "Not until there w1r. such a stir maSe about it."

CHILD ESCAPED DEATH. Struck Twice by Pilot of Engine--Se verely Bruised. LARAMIE, Wyo., April 11.-A little girl named O'Connor has had a remarkable es cape from death beneath the wheels of a locomotive. The child, with two others, was crossing the Union Pacific tracks on her' way to school. Her companions passed in front of an epproaching freight train and called to her to follow. Shie hesitated, and then, when the train was barely ten feet away, made the dashs Directly in the center of the track- her feet c'ipped and she fell on her hands and knees. The pilot of the locomotive struck her and threw her into the air, where she turned a complete somersault and again fell on the track. The engineer weanwhile had reversed, and the'locomotive stopped with the pilot over the child's body. Had the engine gone another foot she would have been crushed to death. She was found to be severely bruised. A Conference Wedna=day, The executive committee of the lsthmian canal commission, consisting of Chairan Sbonts, Gov. Magoon and.

MANY INQUIRIES MADE IMPBOVNNUT IN THE BEELING MACHINES NEEDED. Numerous Groves of Mulberry Trees in the Country-Success in i Growing Havana Tobacco. The story in The Star the other day of how Secretary Wilson and his assistants are preparing to build up a new American industry-that of silk-worm raising and silk reeling-has apparently attracted wide at tention. Letters have already been received at the department from all over the country mak ing inquiries as to the manner in which the department intends to continue its work and requesting shipments of silk warm eggs. Incidently, it has been found by means of these letters that there are quite a number of mulberry tree groves in the eastern, central and southern portions of the United States, some of them of sufficient size to make the raising of silk worms a prcfitable industry. Inproved Silk Reeling Desired. Secretary Wilson, in discussing the silk industry proposition with a Star reporter, said that in his opinion it would not be long before some ingenious Yankee had in vented a silk-reeling machine that would be a vast improvement over those now in general use in the silk districts of France and other European countries. The latest improved French reeling machines are in use in the Agricultural Department, and as a matter of fact, several quite important improvements have already been made in them by the experts of the department. This in itself, the Secretary believes, should be a sufficient indication to the optimistical ly inclined to warrant the statement that when silk-worm culture spreads throughout the United States, as the Secretary and his assistants hope tnd believe it will, some bright American interested in the young industry will invent a reeling machine that will make the French affair seem cumber some and antiquated by comparison. The Secretary of Agriculture is much pleased with the interest in silk culture that is being shown by planters and farm ers in the southern states and elsewhere, and there is likely to be a big demand for mulberry trees in the near future. Young trees can be obtained at comparatively small expense, and it is believed that many of those interested in silk culture will pro cure numbers of the trees on their own ini tiative. Information on all points connected with the silk industry will be furnished by the experts of the department to persons interested. Secretary Wilson's Efforts Commende-l. Secretary Wilson has received many sin cere words of commendation of late in con nection with his efforts to create an Amer ican industry. His work in furthering the beet sugar industry in the United States, which has now grown to enormous propor tions, is well remembered, as are other agri cultural benefits which he has been prom: nent in fostering and aiding. The Secretary modestly attributes a good part of his success along these l.es to the fact that his administration of the depart ment has lasted for a rather longer period than the terms of most of his predecessors. He has been able to take up a project and follow it through to fruition, which, of course, would have been otherwise a matter of impossibility, and it is certainly true that in the Agricultural Department, perhaps more so than in any other branch of the government service, unity of direction counts for a great deal. Success With Tobacco. The other day a visitor at the Agricul tural Department called on the Secretary and in the course of his cor.versation com plimented the latter on the results he had achieved and on his plans for the future. "But I don't hear much about the Ameri can cigar-tobacco crop," the visitor finally remarked. '"I suppose that is one Ameri can industry that will fall t(, the ground." "That reminds me," said the Secretary, "that I want to smoke." Then he took two fine looking perfecto cigars out of his pocket and handed one to the visitor. "If we could grow tobacco like that," he said, "I guess we would be doing pretty well, don't you think?" The vistor lighted his cigar, smoked for a moment with keen enjoyment and then remarked: "Well, I should say so. That Is a 50-cent straight clear Havana cigar, or I never tasted one." "That cigar," replied the Secretary, calmly, "is an American product. The filler was grown in Alabama and the wrap per in Coneneticut." "I am certainly converted." declared the visitor, after he had smoked some more. "and your domestic tobacco with the clear Havana flavor can't get on the market too quick for me." AGAINST OBIENTAL LABOR. 200 White Men Opposed Chinese and Japanese Workmen, VANCOUVER, B. C., April 11.-Oriental labor has been driven out of a mill at Sal mo. A party of thirty-three men, ten of whom were Chinese and twenty-three Jai anese, were taken from this city to the~ Kootenay shingle mill at Salmo. It was learned at Salmo that the Japanese andI Chinese workmen were coming, and a crowd of 200 white men were at the station when the train arrived. The whites refused to allow the orlentals to leave the depot, and the newcomers took the next train to Nelson, the nearest sta tion. The company says It requires the orientals and cannot work without them. Another attempt will be made, with the aid of provincial police, to land the Asiatics in Salmo. BOSTON WOOL M ARKET.
