Kucha received three -wounds, none of which is serious. He is undt-r arrest. Three bystanders received elight wounds. Convicted of Larceny. Kthel Brooks, a young colored girl, was arraigned in the Police Court today on two charges of larceny from boarders in the house where she was a servant. She frankly confessed she took the clothes.

"Have you ever taken clothes in that way before?" the servant /as asked. "Yes, sir," she replied, and she related nn instance where she wore a dress, thus borrowed, to a swell ball which she attend- ! ed. In the previous oases the dresses had been returned; but in these two cases the missing R.irments were found in her room. Attorney Peyton for the defense maintained tliat the property was not removed from 'he premises of the owner and that the girl had not intended to deprive the owner permanently of It.

Little, if any, change In the strike situation of the cigarmakers is noted from yesterday. It was said today that no definite conclusion will be reached until after the meeting of the manufacturers Is held at Mr. Offterdinger's establishment tomorrow evening. The workmen claim that all but three of the manufacturing establishments have acceded to their demands. On the other hand, one of the largest manufacturers in the District asserted that the three flrmc ?hot ap.-? linlilintr nnt omnlilV n? mUflV men as do all the others. It was stated today that the local manufacturers are paying $1"> a thousand cigars now for a grade of work for which the cigarmakers of York. Pa., are striking to obtain $11: also that a majority of the cigars consumed in the District are from Pennsylvania, where the price of labor is very much lower than here. One of the manufacturers who is holding out until after the meeting tomorrow night said the proposed co-operative manufactory proposed by the strikers would not, in his opinion, be a success, because the consumers would not pay the increased price for cigars whether they are made by a cooperative scheme or by regular factories. He added that the price of tobacco is Z~> per uem turner now man il wiin a. jeai ugc, while the price of cigars has not increased. Opinion of One Manufacturer. It was the opinion of one of the manufacturers that the matter of the strike of the cigar maker3 should be taken up by the Greater Washington promoters. "The promoters are trying to build up a greater commercial field here and to establish factories, while such matters as the strike have a tendency to tear down. Retail dealers will not pay the increased price that will be necessitated should the strike succeed, because they can purchase goods from out-of-town manufactories in places where the price of labor is very much less than it is here." The manufacturers also complain that the union took snap judgment by presenting a new bill of prices to them Friday to go into effect the following Monday morning. They added that they will be prepared to give the union their ultimatum Thursday morning. Complain of Small Salaries. 1 ne cigar maxers, on me umer nuiiu, claim that they are making smaller salaries than many of the other trades, and that it is impossible for them to live respectably and rear their families on the amounts they are now receiving from their employers. They maintain that the price of foodstuffs. rent and the other necessaries of life have increased materially in the past few years, without any corresponding increase in their pay. The cigarmakers held an enthusiastic meetine last night in Bieligk's hall, 7th and M streets southwest. It is apnounced tliat of the thirty-odd manufacturers in Washington and Alexandria all except three have agreed to terms. These lirms are H. T. Ofterdinger, 5<?4 Oth street; George J Beekert, 403 ?th street southeast, and M. Collard. Pennsylvania avenue near 10th street. Thirty-five men are employed in these factories. Samuel Gompers, president of the American Federation of Labor and vice president of the International Association of Clgarmakers. attended the meeting, at which a special assessment was requested from each member to go to the fund for the support of those men who are to be kept idle by the firms that still hold out. President Gompers told the men that they had the support of 15O.<;0!> fellow-workmen in the 1'nited States if the matter should reach the proportions of a general strike. WEATHER FORECAST.

Hi# 11 ^^HYWLLIAM: ^ftfl)0U>H RK STATE. FOUND ON THE FLOOR BANDALL W. ELLIOTT INHALED ILLUMINATING GAS. Randall Webb Elliott, twenty-one years of age, committed suicide late yesterday afternoon. Elliott was employed in the installation department of the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company. He boarded at the house of Mrs. S. L. Bowles, 1829 G street, where he ended his life by inhaling Illuminating,gas. Instead of committing the deed in his own room he went to the room of Agee Bowles, son of the landlady, and thereby caused Mrs. Bowles an amount ui unnecessary sunering, as ne was found on the floor wearing a bath robe belonging to young Bowles, the robe covering his face and preventing Immediate identification. The change of room and the use of his friend's robe also caused a brother of the deceased. Dr. Henry R. Elliott, to experience a shock. When young Elliott was found in the room with the gas turned on the physician was summoned to attend him, being told that a son of Mrs. Bowles needed attention. Going to the room he took charge of the patient, and it was not until he removed the covering from the face that the features of his brother were disclosed. Physician Was Surprised. Dr. Elliott was greatly upset by the experience, but he did not stop an instant in his efforts. Even after he realized that life was extinct he worked upon the body, using every effort to restore respiration by artificial means. Finally he withdrew from the room and returned to his apartments |r> tViA Mnnrv fnrnnor Movlft woo fVion summoned to make an Investigation, but there was only one conclusion to be reached. Elliott had declared that he was tired of life, and had so stated in a letter and note he had written shortly before he opene.d the valve of the gas fixture and stretched himself upon the bed. That he also took a dose of poison is the belief of Coroner Nevitt, who was startled at the appearance of the body when he reached the house. Views of the Coroner. "It is the most peculiar case of gas poisoning I have ever seen," the coroner remarked. It was about two hours after the young man was found in the room with the eras turned on that Coroner Nevitt viewed the body. The face of the corpse was still flushed and the body was warm. The coroner quickly reached the conclusion that gas had not done all the damage. Indeed, he almost doubted that life was extinct. The gas tube had been directed from the stove to the mouth of young Elliott and he could have inhaled a large amount of the gas during the time he was In the room of his friend, but there was an absence of the conditions which invariably follow a case of gas poisoning and the coroner looked for other causes. Before asking questions, how- ! ever, he had Dr. Elliott assist him in an effort to restore respiration. For fully thirty minutes the effort was continued and there was a sign of the natural coloring returning to the lips and eyes. Had Strychnine in Pocket. Even after the coroner had made out the death certificate he returned to the room and made another examination of the body to make doubly sure that life was extinct, j While the coroner was making an effort to ascertain If Elliott had used a poison a friend of the deceased told of a statement Elliott had made a few days ago about havinc snmp nnl?jr>n in hio 1 ? "I have enough strychnine in my pocket," he remarked to the friend, "to kill a horse." ' Coroner Nevitt feels certain that some of the strychnine was used by Elliott. A postmortem examination would be necessary to determine if such poison had actually been taken, but as there was no doubt about who was responsible for the death, such an investigation will not be mide. The coroner gave the necessary death certificate and the body was turned over to an undertaker to be prepared for burial. Complained of Feeling 111. Randall Elliott has been employed by the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company for several months. He worked last Saturday, as usual, and was to have returned to the office yesterday morning, but i he telephoned that he was ill and would not he nhle to renort. Durinir the mornine ho complained that he had a headache, but there was nothing about his appearance or . conduct to indicate that he contemplated taking his life. It was after 2 o'clock when he lett his room and went to a small hall room that was occupied by the son of Mrs. < Bowles. He had been there only about two i hours, it is stated, when he was found by Mrs. Bowles. Thinking it was her own i son who was lying on the floor, Mrs. Bowles hurried to the street and had Dr. Elliott summoned. Two written messages were left by Elliott. 1 One of them was addressed to his brother, the physician, and the other to his room ? * .. Hf.

' The reason whv the mainr'.tv nf wnmnn who have to depend on their own exertions in the matter of dressing their hair usually obtain such disappointing results does not. after all, spring so much from a want of knowledge of the subject as a. fatal parsimonlousness !n the amount of time they devote to it night and morninar. Hair, to look well, must receive a maximum of attention, and the fact is too of'.en lenored that the necescirv time snpnt nn this important matter of the toilet is never thrown afay as far as looks are concerned, the present fashions making more stringent demands than ever on tho amateur hairdresser.

THE EVENING STAR IS THE OFFICIAL ORGAN OF THE SUddcmc rniiDT nc tuc r*ie rnuiiib. www n i w i i t_ w I TRICT OF COLUMBIA IN BANKRUPTCY MATTER!.. HALLOWEEN PARTIES. How to Arrange the Old-Time Decorations and Some Novel Ideas. Written for The Star. Aside from the old-time pumpkins, jacko'-lanterns and autumn leaves, there are few decorations to employ in preparing the Halloween frolic; but these, tastefully and originally arranged, make most effective rooms. Halloween is a spooky, wierd night, and no light save that from a bonfire or thai which peeps out from behind great pumpkin faces on shelves or table or porch eaves must be in evidence. The bonfire is tht traditional light, and by its alluring flam the fairies are said to come and dance and tell mere mortals of their future mates. In smaller towns or -in the suburbs of cities the bonfire is still a custom of the night, but In cities there is little opportunity fo: one. A pretty Halloween supper table is lefl bare, with only the highly poiisaed wood in evidence and perhaps a dolly or two ol linen-colored cloth, nothing white ncr o1 lace. In the center stands a big pumpkin with a face cut on each side, and inside ol which stands a big plumber's candle Heaped all about the jack-o'-lantern are bis red and green apples highly polished, and oranges, nuts and raisins. For more lighl there are four candlesticks cut from the large ends of yellow gourds and in which are stuck short plumber's candles. If there Is a shelf or a mantel in the room, there should be two or three oddlj carved faces in pumpkins, each with a lighl behind, and a weird-looking lantern may bo made by putting discs of red Isinglass over the eyes, with a black pencil dot in th? center. A tablecloth made entirely from oak leaves is nrettv. hut nerishable. The leaves, which are all the shades of red and green and brown, are collected with a view to having them as much the same size as possible. Then the stems are removed and the leaves are pinned together with them In long strips. After there are yards and yards of this leaf ribbon completed It is separated Into sections long enough to .cover the table and fastened together with more stems from other leaves. On too oi this cloth of autumn leaves the pumpkins are set. It makes one of the very prettiest table decorations for Halloween party. Portieres and window curtains are made from autumn leaves pinned together in the same way and held back with big clusters of small branches. The leaf ribbons are pinned over a curtain pole made from a branch bared of its leaves. Besides the natural decorations of autumn there axe quantltiea of favors in the # vnvEo^ QUAUTM remedies: those of known qnal- I ntly beneficial In effect, acting I Eitnre, when natnre needs assist- I , composed of preparations of I infprior rharartpr. turn *.

Woman. The writer of these lines has often in th? . past derided woman. He las gibed at her. joked at her. warned man against her. ati tempted to analyse her. presmmed to study her, pretended to philosophize over her and 8 otherwise made game. Rnt at Inst iind with h christened and a contrite heart, he sees the error of his ways. Out of the deep he calls and prays i that he may be forgiven. Woman knows more in a minute than > ii'an knows in a lifetime. She has more logic in her little Anger * than a man has in that tiling he calls his head. She can see more through a hole in .% slone wall than a man can see from the lop of the fence. She has more decision in the faintest of her whispers than man has in the louJ?st ' of his roars. She shows more wisdom in one of hrr chance remarks than man shows in all his 1 labored writings. She sticks closer to the truth In talkIntr t1\ Vmr hitfuriict onamv t'.iin nun iliutl In speaking to Ills best friend. She has more intuition In a glance than man has in a hypnotic stare. She shows less deceit in her whole ward' robe than man shows in one of his padded shoulders. ! She has more strength In one of her smiles than man has in all his muscles. She shows more perF Vcr.ince in turning an old skirt than man sliu s in th<- work 5 of hi.s life. Filipinos Are Good Workers. ' Hamilton Wright, in Leslie's Weekly. I was tremendously impressed with th? ti s\f l ho li'ilinlnn l'jhnr/>f? an/I ! the fact that they mak^ such efficient workI men when properly trained. The manner In which these people take hold of things when . they are given a fair chance is slpiply marvelous. I know one mail who went to the Philippines fourteen years ago and S2ttled down among a tribe who lived in trees, ate fish and roots, and wore what clothing came handy. It was on a hard-wood timber tract. Today these "Klco'.s," for that is the tribe to which they belong. live in nice homes, and have schools, churches, a brass band, a dance hall, and last, but not least, they are excellent lumbermen; they know all the varieties of tin- trees and their value and how to cut them. They have never left the cuttings, nor have they been affected by famine or pestilence, nor did they desert to Join the insurrection. Six or these, boys between the ages of seventeen and twenty-eight, rowed me two hundred 1 miles along the coast of southern Luzon In ! four dnys without a stop. 1 don't believe [ the heaviest of them weighed over one hundred and thirty pounds. They ate three good hearty meals a day of rice and llsh, and at night, when the heavy lifeboat had [ been pulled upon the beach and turned over, they slept like logs under Its shelter. At the end of the trip they seemed as fre.-h as at the beginning. For endurmce, Mr. John i Orr, who trained these boys, would matrix them against any crew in the world. They have defeated French, English. German, I American and Spanish sailors in boat races, i The Filipinos are Malays, one of the oldi est pure stocks In the world, and they have survived because thev are adaptable. I would hesitate very much to state that It would be impossible for them to equal. In time, the Japanese. The J. A. White Com[ pany, which has invested close to five mil> lion dollars In the Manlli street railways and lighting plant. a::d which will Invest , about fourteen million dollars more in rail roads on the Islands of Cebu, Negros and Panay, hay found that in time Its laborers ^ reach an efficiency of from 70 to 80 per i cent of that of Americans. The workers need care, food at the noon hour, amust, ments such as occasional dances and cock-fights, churches, and to have their homes near to their working places, for otherwise they would desert to go to their ; families to whom they are extremely attached. t M ? .1 TTT 1.1. *7 3 _ .? rr.ll. muss uecoraieu wnu imuo ui laus. ' The new muffs that have just been Introduced are quite as large as the "grannies" i of last winter plus a waterfall of moet 1 lengthy tails, which falls over the muff from the front. So long do the tails appear that the fact ' that they are joined together Is very apparent. though there is no obvious proof of it. A sable muff lined with white fur will | have brown and white tails alternately upon it. with the heads of the sable and the fox at the top of each tall. Worn in a carriage or locomobile, the effect of 'this extraordinary muff Is striking, while for the promenade it 1j? not less so, though the weight the tails add to it is not inconsiderable, and therefore somewhat of a deterrent to the ease of the pedestrian. ? It matters little what ft Is that you want?whether a situation or a servant? a "want" ad. in The Star will reach tb? person who can till yoOP need.
