of the deceased, and said that while
some men may be honest, upright In their
dealing?* with men and Industrious, besides
posseting other attributes, that was not
all that was necessary to please God. He
explained that pagans and other nonbelievers
possessed those virtues, yet they
did not believe in God nor did they obey His
commandments. The minister added that besides
possessing the attributes of earth he
had ^numerated. Gen. Moore was also In
Its fullest sense a Christian, and had, besides.
those qualities which were necessary
to please God. He concluded by saying
that Just before the death of Gen. Moore
he had received the last sacraments of the
church.
The active pallbearers were eight troopers
of the cavalry, while the honorary pallbe#.
ri rs were the following former associates

DEALER WAS ALARMED.
Store Man Thought Customers Had
Wild West Fever.
Orator Edwards, sixteen years of age. residing
at 1710 B street southeast, and Walter
Kendrick. two years younger, whose parents
reside at 1417 A street, attracted the
attention of a dealer on D street yesterday
while making purchases. It turned out that
the Kendrick boy was a truant from school,
and that his companion, who had recently
been employed in a railroad office, had
saved $S from his earnings, and was willing
to spend the cash. The elder of the two
boys purchased a belt and holster, and then
he bought a box of cartridges.
"I have a pistol at home." he explained,
"and I want a box of cartridges to fit it."
Nothing was thought pf these purchases,
but when a request was made for a long
knife the dealer thought it was time to call
a halt. Precinct Detective Mullen happened
to pass about that time, and he took the
boys to police headquarters. It was his
idea that the boys had the "wild west"
fever, and that they wanted to go forth to
look for big game.
"I wanted the outfit to use on the Eastern
branch when I go fishing this summer,"
Edwards explained. "All Uie people who go
fishing have big knives, and it's lots of fun
to shoot at frogs alone the fdee of thp
marsh."
The boys were detained at headquarters
until they could be turned over to their parents.

hearing. He then furnished $1,0U0
bond for his appearance in the upper court,
if required, following investigation by the

HORSE OWNERS TO MEET.
Alleged Interference With Property
on Public Streets.
The horse owners in the District and adjacent
territory have been Invited to attend
a mass meeting at 7:30 o'clock tomorrow
evening at Masonic Temple, 9th
and F streets, for the purpose, as Is stated
In the call, of "taking united, definite and
determined action to prevent interference
with our property while on the public highways.
by the agent of the Washington Humane
Society. Mr. Hayden Johnston, attorney
at law, will, by special request, address
the meeting as to the legal side of
the question. Short speeches by horse owners
will be in order." The call for the meeting
Is signed by A. S. Trundle, 120 I street.

the society is that the fines collected go
to the society instead of to the District
government, which, it is claimed, places
a premium on persecution rather than prosecution,
and makes the officers over diligent.

THE THEATER.
Miss Ellen Terry. .
Beginning next Monday evening Miss
Ellen Terry, the English actress, will appear
at the New National Theater In George
Bernard Shaw's "Captain Brassbound'a
Conversion," Herman Heijerman's "The
Good Hope ' and the one-act play, 'Xanc?
Oldfield."
"Captain Brassbound'a Conversion" was
written foij Ellen Terry by Geotge Bernard
Shaw seventeen yeara agq. When he
offered it to her he made the statement
that "with Ellen Terry in a play there is
no necessity for having any other woman."
Later this play was, with two others,
grouped by him under the title of "Three
Plays for Puritans." When the play was
read to Ellen Terry and Henry Irving Mr.
Irving objected to appearing in it, not because
of the compliment Shaw had paid to
Ellen Terry, but because of the fact, as he
stated It, "that you want to make fun of
me in a frock coat.'' Sir Henry n*ver overcame
his aversion to roles that required
niu wearing or a irocK coat. bo wnen ine
play was again submitted to him it was
again declined for the sam^, reason. Miss
Terry stated at the time tjiat in the then
anticipated contingency that she might play
apart from Sir Henry, she would be very
glad to play Lady Ci-cely, her role In
"Captain Brassbound's Conversion." The
separation between the two great players
followed soon after. Miss Terry, however,
refused to play Lady Cicely while Sir Henry
lived, and so it was not produced until last
season, when, as a matter of keeping her
promise to the author. It was put on at the
Court Theater, London. "Captain Brassbound's
Conversion" will be given Monday,
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights
and again at the Saturday matinee; "The
Good Hope" and "Nance Oldtield" will be
presented on Friday and Saturday nights
only.
Mr. Wilton Lackaye.
Wilton Lackaye will be seen in his own
version of Victor Hugo's epoch-making
materpiece, "Les Miserables," at the Columbia
Theater Monday nigiit. The en
gagemeni win last throughout the week.
M-. Lackaye calls his play "The Law and
the Man." In his work of adaptation, the
actor-playwrlglit has followed -vith remarkable
fidelity the story as told in Hugo'B
work. In many instances and whenever
practical for stage use the dialogue is that
of Hugo himself. The piece is in a prologue
and four acts and opens with Fantine and
her girl companions and their lovers in a
village near Paris. It is here that the poor
Fantine is deserted by Felix; and that wonderful
man of iron determination who follows
his course as truly as the compass
points to the magnetic north, Javert. makes
his appearance; also Jean Valjean, which is
the role .Jr. Lackaye is portraying this season.

He declared that opportunity did not knock
only once at a man's door, but is knocking
all the time, but usually the man is too busy
knocking himself to hear. The speaker declared
that the greatest of all womankind

| AT BUSINESS HIGH SCHOOL.
Lecture by Gilford Pinchot in Befer,
ence to Forests.
The special advantages of Washington
schools due to their' location nt the capital
of the nation with its government departments
was Illustrated today In a lecture at
the Business High School by Mr. GifTord
i Pinchot, the head of the forestry work of
j me government, nr. 1'incnoc pointed out
that with the Increase in the use of metals
there Is also a greater demand for wood,
although it was confidently predicted when
the numerous applications of iron in industrial
life were begun that there would not
be such a big drain upon the forests. As
the result, the lecturer said, "towns of
trees" are rapidly being destroyed and
there will be a lack of the indespensable
maici mi nuuiii a iew years uniess lnieiugent
and systematic effort Is made to replace
what Is cut down. The people are
awaking to the danger and throughout the
country appeals are being made for forestry
reservations.
What was regarded as one of the most
striking illustrations, among the many
beautiful views shown upon the screen, was
the terrible effects of rain In washing away
the hillside after the natural growths have
been destroyed by man and beast. In one
iiisuiiiL-B. mr. ?-incnoi saia. an entire rarm
had been ruined because of the removel of
the trees on a slope above. It is the constant
aim and effort of the government to
mc luirsin oy II JUU'CIOUS CUlIIng OI
the old trees and by a systematic method of
replanting. If these plans are properly
carried out on a large scale there is no
danger, Mr. Pinchot declared, that the
country will suffer from a famine In lumber,
because every tree has its millions of
"little stomachs" In Us numerous leaves
that enable it to digest food from the air
and soil and thus increase as in the past
ages.

matter of purchasing a home, with halls

camps and auxiliaries, as well as club features.
Capt. Richmond Pearson Hobson,
commander of the Admiral George Dewey
Naval Camp, has been appointed chairman
of the home committee of that body, with
i:apt. Ttiomas A. Green, department quartermaster,
and Capt. Henry Porter as associate
members. Similar committees have
been appointed by the other camps to cooperate
with the general committee, representing
the department and the ladles' auxiliaries.
Several* offers of assistance in raising the
necessary amount to purchase the proposed
home building have been made to Capt. J.
Walter Mitchell, the department commander.
Tentative arrangements are being considered
by the Spanish War Veterans for the
reproduction on a grand scale of the battle
of Santiago or the first fight in the Cuban
campaign, La Guasimas. in whloh President

TRIAL BOARD APPROVED.
Commissioner Macfarland Rejects Appeal
in Hollidge Case.
Private W. T. Hollidge of the tenth police
precinct, who has been recommended by
the trial board for dismissal on the charge
that he was convicted in the Juvenile Court
of having failed to support his three minor
children, thereby bringing disgrace on the
police force, "was given a hearing before the
board of Commissioners at the District
building this morning. Hayden Johnson,
who represented the policeman as attor
ney, mtiiru mai since ine court action his
client lias paid a month toward the support
of -his children, and if the recommendations
of the trial board are sustained
and Hollldge is dismissed he will be unable
to support them. Mrs. Hollidge, wife
of the accused policeman, made a strong
appeal to them to retain her husband on
the force saying she would have no means
with which to support tier children in the
event of his dismissal.
Commissioner Macfarland, who presided
at the hearing, announced later that he
would make a motion that the recommendation
of the trial board be sustained.
