NEWS OF THE LOCAL NATIONAL GUARDSMEN MEMBERS of the National Guard of the District are about to have Ave weeks' rest from all military duty, after the exacting field maneuvers which they have just passed through in Massachusetts. General orders are about to be issued from militia headquarters suspending all drills from now until-the first weekly assembly night of each com mand ? after October 1.

Duvnll and his several as sistants are gradually getting stored away In good condition until they will be needed again next year. Msj. Neumeyer, commissary of the Guard, assists by his son, Capt.

Neumeyer supplied the local guardsmen with many extra supplies that could not be drawn from the regular commissary, but had to he purchased from the funds available for the District troops. In the battery armory a force of non commissioned officers has been working from morning till night for the past two ds.vs getting the battery equipment stored away in good condition. The Signal Corps company had also much apparatus and equipment to store away until the next encampment, <or until work .is re sumed next October. =1= * ?

TO OCCUPY POTOMAC PARK. Preparing to Establish Offices of the Engineer Service. The preparing of the portion of Poto mac Park adjoining the railway tracks where they cross the harbor for the head quarters of the United States .Engineer service is progressing rapidly, and the site is now occupied by several buildings that have been moved there from, the old headquarters at Easbys point during the past three weeks.

LITERALLY HIS LAST TRIP. Drowned Wireless Operator Eccles Had Resigned His Position. Special Di*patrb to TIip Star. SEATTLE, Wash.. August 28.?George C. Eccles. wireless operator on the wreck ed steamer Ohio, went below with the I I pursuer to search for (he quartermaster t and steerage passengers when the ship started lo sink, after striking the rocks on the Alaska roast yesterday, accord ing to a wireless message received this morning. He returned to his station after the search and began sending a message when the vessel made the plunge that carried it to the bottom. Eccles was seen to leap from the wire less station, striking on his head, and it Is thought that he then rolled into the water and was carried down by the whirlpool caused by the rapidly sinking steamer. Eccles secured a place at Sustna, Alaska, a short time before the Ohio sailed, and had handed in his resignation, but as the company was short of wire less operators! he consented to make one more trip before leaving the service of the company. A brief report received from Capt. John Johnson of the Ohio says: "Ohio struck rock 1 a.m.. August 2?, oft Steep point. She now lies submerged in six fathomp forward and twelve fathoms aft. Purser, wireless operator, quartermaster, one steerage passenger and one soldier missing. Ship damaged on port side on bottom. Impossible, to say the extent of the damage. Captain and four men are standing by the wreck. Passengers and crew were picked up by fishing bo.tt Kins Fisher and landed in Swanson bay." Around the City A woman quick of step and nervous voiced approached a policeman at a cor ner. ? "Mr. Officer, can I get home before it storms?" The policeman looked at the sky?blue overhead, with rain-coated gray clouds traveling- up from the Union station. "What direction do you want to go?" "Fourteenth and I northwest." "Rain's coming from the east. You can outrace it if you hurry." The woman looked her thankful relief, and hurried. And the human kiosk smiled to hims?lf as if he were considering his new duties as a weather bureau. "This la Alice Roosevelt's portrait, painted in the dress she wore in the Philippines." The native who jrave this valuable in formation stood before a Chinese carved frame in the lecture hall at the Museum. Her companion, who was plainly a vis itor from some place where bustles are still in vogue, tcok a keen inventory of the picture?the pink and yellowish cheeks and slant eyes, the black hair, the over.iewcled hands with their claw like nails, the gorgeous brocades, the say lanterns and entire oriental environ ment. It wasn't Alice Roosevelt's portrait, of course; but after all. when you take com pany to see the sights the main thing Is to Ret them interested, and doubtless the dear, srood soul from the land of bustles got more satisfaction out of the belief that she had seen the one time, and may be again. Princess of the White House than if she had known the cold fact that she was looking at the late Empress of China. As dear Ade would say; "What's the dif?" She was a big-hatted woman with a ! caved-in contour and heels hl^h enough i to give her the walk of one who goes on stilts. The two small girls who accom panied her down the avenue were in white mull and blue ribbons, and cach had her small head hidden under a bushel of peach basket straw, with brims so droop ing that they could only see straight ahead. As they reached the crossing at Market space the mother stopped to speak to an other woman, while the little girls, whose sipht was hampered, like a horse with blinders, crossed over and by some miracle of chance?or of some higher power?managed to escape automobiles, .trolleys, business vans and all other vehicles incident to 7th street trade. As the milliners' conference held in Paris last spring voted down the ressur rectlon of the shaker because "it pre vented a child from seeing where she was going." the query seems to be: "Why the peach basket?" A young woman, who has evidently no back yard to her home, was stretching lace curtains on the pavement in front of her door. The wooden frame was placed as close to the house as possible, and the young woman, protected from the sun by a> tree that flickered its shadows over her light hair?not pompadoured?and trim white dress?not directolre. which means not bolster slip^-plnned the scal lops of % Nottingham strip, as uncon scious of publicity as though she were In a country garden a hundred miles from town. The street is in the vicinity of what New York would call the red light sec tion. and a conventional woman who was hurrying through it to shorten an emer gency trip to the southwest wondered if it were quite proper for her to be there. Shr feared to see something unusual? don't you know. And when she saw the young woman at her neat bit of home work she felt ashamed of herself. A young man and his presumable bride were doing the pension office under Che pilotage of a guide. "I want to call your attention to these supporting columns that uphold this en tire court. These pilars are eighty-five feet high and twenty-five feet around? 35,000 bricks to a pillar?and all plas tered. painted and veined to imitate Ital ian marble. Standing here at this west entrance, ar.d looking up at this first pil lar about eight feet high, you will see an accurate picture of George Washing ton?on this next the traceries take the form of an Indian warrior; over here you see th* little schoolhouse on the hill, and here the 8tar8 and StripeB fluttering from a flagstaff?all painted 90 perfectly as to seem the result of careful work instead of Inspiration." "Wasn't it done a purpose?" inter rupted the bridegroom. The guide, realizing the money value of mastery, answered with a fine disre gard of truth: "No, indeed, sir?painter was as sur prised as the next when he saw what hJs brush had been doing. Just Simon pure t inspiration, sir. Awes me every time I come here." "That so? We got a mountain up where wc come from. On one slab of stone a hundred feet up the side there's a piH advertisement in white letters a foot long. Only difference between that and this is, our painter didn't claim to be ins " "Queer things in this old world of ours, sir?I want to call your attention to these flagstones." MEET BEFORE JVDOE. Father and Son Had Not Seen Each j OtHei-' fdr Years. Foreign Conc?pond<?nce of The Star. .. PARIS. August 1903. Strange meetings sometimes take place in an examining magistrate's presence. One ox" tho Paris judges was questioning a young man, aged twenty, accused of' I complicity . in a murder committed on a I country road, the victim being a poor fel low who had been killed for the sake of robbing him of a penny. He had not seen, his father since he was eleven years old* consequently nine years ago. and did not know whether he was dead or ativo. At the same time another magistrate was examining a man, aged about fifty, who was accused of burglary'. For some reason or other it was thought that there might be a connection between < the two crimes, and the alleged burglar and murderer's accomplice were brought face to face.. They were as much aston ished as the magistrates to find that they were father and son. "How did you get here?" asked the father. "And you?" retorted the son. who at first had not been able to recognize his parent, especially as the latter wore a false beard and mustache. This was another revelation to the judges. The young man said that his father had never worn a beard and could not grow one. The alleged burglar's face was examined and the beard was found to be spurious. The meeting between father and son was not so cordial in con sequence as it might have been under other circumstances. Thrown From His Auto. ROANOKE, Va., August 38.?St. Elmo Ross.- Roanoke- agent of the New York Life Iusuranee Company, was probably fatally injured early today when he was thrown from an automobile near Chris tiansburg. Va. Ross was riding with Henpy McHarg. jr.. son of the New York millionaire iron manufacturer, when the machine hit an obstruction. Ross fell on Ms head, suffering a fracture of the skull at the base of the bratn. He is in a Roanoke, hospital. , Ross came here from Georgia. MATRONS WANT UNIFORM. Do Not Like to Be Mistaken for Persons Under Arrest. It is the Intention of the police matrons doing:.' duty at' the first precinct station to a9k Maj. Sylvester to designate a uni form for them to wear or to provide them with badges. They say their pres ence in the patrol wagon often proves annoying to them, men, women and children staring at them and frequently making remarks. It is not an uncom mon thing for them to hear men or women ask why they were arrested, they say, and the wearing of a badge or uni form -would prevent such annoyances. It is-eald that matrons in many large cities wear a neat uniform to distinguish them from women under arrest. The ma trons at the house of detention do not have to ride in patrol wagons, and it is thought the wearing of a uniform or badge would not be necessary so far as they are concerned. Should Maj. Syl vester determine to uniform any of them, however, it is thought the rule will ap ply to all of them. SHIRT'WAIST MAN PROTESTS. Charged With Disorderly Conduct for Not Wearing Coat. Isaac Krikstine, a tailor, protested his innocence last night when taken to the first precinct police station and charged with disorderly conduct in a theater. He was arrested in one of the five-cent the aters on Pennsylvania avenue, and it was necessary for him to send for a friend to deposit fi5 collateral for him 'In order to prevent his being held behind the bars. When he reached the police station there was a crowd of curious people fol lowing, "I haven't done anything." protested Krikstine, who showed not the slightest sign of excitement. "I was seated in the theater with my coat off and the watch man told me to put it on. I told him it was too hot, and he nut me out." Friends of the tailor told him he had probably violated the rules of the thea ter by being there without his coat on, but Kirkstine said he could go in al most any public place with his coat off in hot weather. "And." he added. "I had my coat off when I bought the ticket. It wa? off when I entered the place, and I think I have done nothing wrong." The question will have to be decided In the Police Court tomorrow morning. MET IN THE HOLT LAND. Companions on a Foreign Tour Marry Months Later. Special Dispatch to The Star. MONTCLAIR, N. J., August 28.-^James X. Jarvle, a banker of New York city, married today Miss Helen V. Newton of Bloomfield. It Is said that just before hlg marriage he made a gift of $1,000,000 to hifc sfster. Miss May Scott Jarvle of this place, who has for many years made her home with her brother here. The bride is said to bo about forty yearts old and Mr. Jam ie is somewhat older. Mrs. Jarvle is the daughter of John Newton, a Bloomfield coal dealer. Last winter Mr. Jarvis and a party of half a dozen friends went out on a six month tour through the Holy Land. In the party was Miss Newton, and It Is said that the two became engaged In Palestine, although the engagement was not formal ly announoad until after their arrival in this country. Mr. and Mra Jarvie sailed today on the 4jnerfka for a trip abroad which will last probably until next December. ?f * JACK TAR MAKES ARRE8T. Charges Kan With Disorder in a Shooting Gallery. August Kramer, a red-haired jack tar from the navy yard, distinguished him self last night by placing a civilian under arrest for alleged disorderly con duct and marching him to the first pre cinct police station. Policemen on duty at the station regarded the affair as a Joke until Policeman Adams found sev eral witnesses who declared the man under arrest had been disorderly. The young man gave a fictitious name and deposited $5 collateral for his ap pearance. It appears that a number of young men were in a Pennsylvania ave nue shooting gallery and something was said by the proprietor to the young man. The latter made a remark which con veyed the notion to the sailor that he intended to whip the proprietor of the place, although his remark was intended as a joke. "I've heard enough of this business," said the man in white uniform. "You are under arrest," he added, and tak ing the young man by the coat collar marched him to the police station. A charge of disorderly conduct was preferred against the young man, and he left $5 collateral to guarantee his at tendance in court tomorrow mornins. CARD PARTT RAIDED. Arrest of Alleged Poker Players by Pirst Precinct Police. Sergt. Lee, Detective Howes and Po liceman Belt of the first precinct surprised a party of alleged poker players in a room on the third floor of building 707 G street northwest last night shortly after 11 o'clock, taking the players, four packs of cards and $1.05 as evidence. Sidney < Janson, native of Denmark, who is janitor of the building, was arrested as the prin cipal and charged with permitting gaming on his premises. In order to reach the room where th?? game was in progress it was necessary for the police raiding party to pass through a long hall, those about the ta ble being able to see them as soon a* they made a start in the direction of the room. When the three members of the police force made the start their brass buttons were seen and the players made a rush in the direction of the exits, one of them going to a window, but the dis tance to the ground was too great for him. Six guests of the janitor were escorted to the police station with their host, al I though they fared much better than Janson. He was held as principal, while they were merely summoned to appeal in the Police Court as witnesses. The police say that most of them had been caught in other raids. Janson's arrest was the result of complaint made to th>* police because a man had played poker in the <1 street building some time ago. Man Chase in Tennessee. CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., August 2S.?
