The Palais Royal ? 2 When competing milliners praise?then do we feel as sured. Not that there's much real opposition between us?be cause these competitors and their little shops arc exactly fitted to the swelldom that must have the personal attention of the proprietor, and be charged a price terrific enough to awe them. Again?these milliners buy most of their materials here, and we value, their trade highly.

The adaptations, to be made tn the order of our visitors, will appeal to those who have acquired the acme of wisdom, who have learned that the cost of a hat need not be great when the skill of a Palais Royal milliner is linked with vast stocks of materials at "Opening prices." 1 *?

DETECTIVE HARTI6AN DEAD POPULAR POLICE OFFICIAL SUCCUMBS TO URAEMIA. Was on Duty at Headquarters Until Late Saturday Night?Pied Early This Morning. Detective Tom Hartigan is dead. His death occurred this morning about 5:20 o'clock at his home, 1025 North Capitol street, and the news camo as a severe shock to a host of friends. Detective Hartigan was one of the most widely known members of the police department, and no other member of the department, it Is conceded, had more good friends. Always willing to perform his duty or to go out of his way to do a good turn for others. Hartigan had gathered about him very many who are sincere in their ex pressions of regret over his death. All of last week Drtective Hartigan had complained of illness, but regarded it as merely a touch of the grip, and it was not until yesterday morning that he felt he could not longer remain on duty. He had Thomas P. Hartigan. a chill, but left his bed and began prep arations to go to headquarters. He was unable to go, however, and his w.'fe noti fied the police department of his illness. A police surgeon was sent to the house to attend him. Detective Hartigan remained in bed most of the day and seemed to be a trifle better in the afternoon. During the night there came a ohange for the worse, however, the most serious aspect of the case developing about 4 O'clock this morning. The patient had several convulsions, and >his wife called in Lieut. Peck. She was alone in the house, and the police official had some of her relatives summoned. They were at the ! house when the end came. Detective Hartigan had been on duty until late Saturday night, having been de tailed that night to watch for tiie pocket book snatcher who has been causing trou ble the past few months. When he was relieved from duty he went home. He told his wife he was not feeling any bet ter than he had felt during the past week, and took some medicine that had been prescribed for him, expecting he i would get better. Native of New York. Thomas P. Hartigan, who was a native of New York, was born the 17th of April, 1865. He enlisted in the government serv ice as a marine and served aboard ships under a number of prominent men who are still connected with the service. While serving in the Marine Corps he was in all parts of the world and familiarized him self with the people of the several coun tries visited. He had been assigned to almost every capacity in the police department. He was appointed March 2. 1891, and was en rolled with the force of the sixth pre cinct. His early police training was re ceived under Lieut. John F. Kelly, who died several years ago. Much of Hartl gan's time was spent as a precinct detec tive, although he served a long period at headquarters. Several years ago he was relieved of duty as a detective and sent to the ninth precinct to serve as a sergeant, Maj. Sylvester having desired to have him in line for promotion. Harti gan did not like his new work and Maj. Sylvester returned him to the detective office. That was five years ago, and he ljad since served under Inspector Board man. Hartigan was an expert angler, and much of his vacation each year was spent in quest of bass. He went for ten days last summer to Deal's Island with a party of friends. His health was not good at that time, but the trip did him good, and it was hoped he would entirely recover from his indisposition. He had been operated upon at Providence Hospital and afterward had shown signs of an affection of the kidneys. His death, it is believed, was due to uraemic poisoning. Mrs. Hartigan and three children sur vive him. The deceased was a member of several organizations, including the Knights of Pythias, the Elks and the Eagles, and members of those organiza tions will probably have charge of the ceremonies at the grave. Maj. Sylvester this afternoon issued an order announcing the death of Detective Hartigan. The order reads, in part, as follows: "It is with extreme sorrow and deep re gret that the major and superintendent is called upon to announce to the members of the force and the employes of the de partment the death of Detective-Sergeant Thomas P. Hartigan, which occurred at 5:2U o'clock this (Monday) morning, Janu ary 20, 11)08, after a brief illness. "During tys long career on the force he was always alive to the interests of the DistrtH and the welfare of the depart ment, a kind husbanf, a loving father and a sincere frlenu. As an officer he was alert, intelligent and faithful, always hliving a generous word for the unfor tunate. and opposite his name in tlie de partment roster Is written "a clear record.' "In respect to the memory of Detective Sergt. Hartigan a detail of two sergeants and twenty-four privates will report to Capt. Michael Byrnes on the day of his funeral. Wednesday. January 22. 1908, at 0 o'clock a.m., 'at his late residence, 1025 North Capitol street, to be in attendance thereon." Arrangements have been made for the funeral to take place from St. Aloysius Church at 9 o'clock Wednesday morning. I The interment will be at Mt. Olivet ceme tery. SUDDENLY EXPIRES. Joseph Kaschka Found Dead Seated in a Chair. Mrs. Augusta Elwood. living at Bright wood. went to the home of Joseph Kasch ka, a Russian, 649 2d street northeast, to see him on some business matter, and was terrified to learn that he was dead. Kaschka had suffered from attacks of heart trouble, and as his death was de clared to be the result of such an attack the corner deemed an inquest unneces sary. He was last seen about 6 o'clock last evening, but at that time he did not complain of being 111. He was seated upon a chair holding a newspaper, and the position In which his body was found this morning indicated that he was still reading the paper when he was stricken. Relatives were notified of his death and they arranged for the burial of his body. Action in Divorce Cases. Chief Justice Clabaugh today granted an absolute divorce to Isaiah L.

Was Rescued From Burning Build ing by Emanuel Beach?Eire Caused Loss of $500. Twice rescued from flre -which destroyed her belongings in her rooms at 1135 9th street northwest, last night. Miss Mary Austin, sixty-eight years old. is In a criti cal condition at the Homeopathic Hospi tal. Drs. Twogood and Morton, who dressed her burns, said Miss Austin was dangerously Injured. Emanuel Beacb of 726 llth street northwest figured as the Emanuel Beach. I ? particular hero of the occasion, and he too was painfully blistered. More than JoOO damage was done by the flames, all of the furniture on the third floor of the house beinsr consumed. According to the police report of the fire. Miss Austin, who had moved Into the 9th street house only three weeks ago, lighted an oil stove last evening, and then went to another part of the house while her room was getting warm. Some one smelled smoke, and when she ran back to investigate Miss Austin was literally over come by the rush of smoke and flames from her doorway. Mr, Beach was pass ing the house with a party of friends when the cry of "flre" was raised, and several women ran to the doorway screaming that two old people on the-top floor were burning to death. Mr. Beach's Strenuous Work. Throwing his overcoat to another mem ber of the party, Mr. Beach raced to the upper floor, and almost the first object he encountered was the unconscious form of Miss Austin lying at the top of the stairs. He carried her to the second floor and returned to the then fiercely biasing floor to find an old man, who. he was told, was in a helpless condition in the center room of the suite. Speaking of this por tion of his adventure last evening, after the firemen had arrived and all danger was past, Mr. Beach said: "When I got in I found the room full of smoke, and I could scarcely breathe. I picked up a chair and smashed a win dow. While trying to get a breath of air I struck some, matches and looked the room over, but no one was there. "While I searched the room flames be gan pouring through the door I had just entered. 1 thought I was trapped, but I rushed through the flre and reached the hallway. There I came upon Miss Austin. She stood in front of her door trying to turn the knob. "I shouted. 'Come away from there,* and dashed toward her. As 1 did. the door fell in. 'having been burned from its hinges, and a sheet of flame enveloped the woman. I picked her up and carried her to the street. 8he was badly burned. An ambulance was summoned, and she was taken to the hospital. "Miss Austin's anxiety to get into the room. I believe, was on account of some Elphonzo Youngs Company, 428 Ninth St. OEOCERIE8?WHOLESALE A>D BVTAIL.

Bills that have been introduced in Con gress providing for the strict observance of Sunday in the Plstrict oi Columbia will be the subject of a public hearing to be held by the Commissioners at the District building In the near future. The Commis sioners Jiave had forwarded to them for report several bills providing Sunday laws,-no one of them being the same as the bill several times reported upon fa vorably by the Commissioners in former Congresses and requiring certain places of retail business in the District of Columbia to tye closed Sunday. March 9. 1006, a bill was introduced in the House making it unlawful to keep open any place of business for the sale or delivery of groceries, meats, vegetables or other provisions Sunday, except that be tweot June 1 and October 1 meats sold before Sunday may be delivered before 10 o'clock on that day. In February of the same year a similar bill was introduced in the House, and both were approved by the Commissioners. One-of the new bills introduced and re ferred to the Commissioners makes it un lawful "to keep open any place of business or maintain a stand for the sale of any article of profit during Sunday excepting vendors of books, newspapers and apothe caries for dispensing medicines, under takers or others tcr purposes of charity or necessity."

DULUTH, Minn., January 20.?The band of Doukhabors that recently arrived at Fort William on the northern coast of Lake Superior from western Canada have to be watched night and day to prevent their appearing in public in a nude con dition, and the local authorities are at a loss as to what course they shall pursue as to- the zealots. A traveler In Duluth from Fort William yesterday said that the authorities there are trying to arrange with tho Russian government to bear the expense of trans porting the Doukhobors back to Russia, but thus far their efforts have been fruit less. The Russian authorities asked for tho names of the rellglenists. but the members of the sect refused to divulge them. The Doukhabors are without money, and the peeople of Fort William have cared for them. Recently, however, the town was scandalized by the appearance of all the Doukabors in the street in a nude condition. They were hurried back to their quarters and compelled to don their clothes.
