WILLIES FIREd! Perry H. Carman and John D. Atkins in Jail in Baltimore. Perry H. Carman, a nine-hundred-dollar | clerk in the Treasury Department, and John D. Atkins, a one-thousand-dollar Treasury clerk, are in jail at Baltimore, charged with raising one-dollar bills to $10, mutilating: money, passing raised bills and obtaining money under false representations. The actual crime with which the two clerks are charged is that of raising the denomination of bills from $1 to $10 by means of pasting figures and lettering from ten-dollar bills or revenue stamps on the face of one-dollar bills and passing the changed bills. Both in Auditor's Office. Carman, who is married and has three children, resides at Seabrook, Md. He entered the classified service of the Treas ury Department a few years ago as an elevator operator. Atkins, who boarded at 13th and Monroe streets northwest, was formerly deputy revenue collector for the state of "Washington. Both were employed in the office of W. E. Andrews, auditor for the Treasury. Carman's arrest occurred last Satur day night at Baltimore, after he had, it is alleged, passed five of the raised bills, in each case receiving change after making purchases amounting to less than $1. When arrested he refused to give his name, which was only learned from cards and letters in his pockets. The secret service operatives who handled the case say two of the raised bills were found in Carman's pockets. When given a preliminary examination Carman, it is stated, im-1 plicated Atkins, and the latter was ar rested when he reported for work yes terday morning. Atkins waived for malities and was taken .to Baltimore, where he is held to await action of the federal grand Jury. Work Clumsily Done. v It is declared the work of raising the bills was done in the Treasury Depart ment itself, within fifteen feet of the quarters of the United States secret service. According to Chief Wllkie, the work was clumsily done, and only the fact that the bills were passed at places where there were many cus tomers and few clerks made It possible for the changed bills to escape detec tion. 921.60 to Toledo, Ohio, and Return, Baltimore and Ohio railroad, July 2 to 4, valid for return until July 9.?Advt.

Last night his con dition was critical, but this morning he was much better. Tyler has not been arrested. * Mount Rainier Considers It Cheaper Than to Send James West to Jail. Because it was cheaper to pay the fine I and costs of the trial of James West, ! colored, than to pay his jail expenses for fifteen days, the town council of Mount Rainier, Md., last night appropriated $13.53 for that purpose and let the defend ant free. Not only was it concluded that it would be less expensive to have the man at liberty, but the bother connected with the satisfying of justice was elim inated. West 1b alleged to have defaced the walls of the railway station at Mount Rainier, and was sentenced to imprison ment for fifteen days in jail or to pay a fine of $10. by Justice of the Peace Joseph F. Haas. West's lack of funds did not give him any choice in the mat ter. Constable Payne was on the way to lock up the defendant temporarily until he could be taken to Marlboro to serve his sentence, when the constable met Joseph T. K. Plant, mayor of Mount Rainier. The mayor suggested that the constable turn the prisoner loose, which was done, and nothing more came of the matter until the monthly report of the "J. P." was submitted. It showed that as the prisoner had not served his sentence the books of justice were $10 short on the month's business. So it was up to the mayor to convince the council last night that it was better and cheaper to have the prisoner free than to have him a charge on the town. As the unanimous vote of the council to appropriate the money shows, the govern ing body agreed with the executive. West, the colored man responsible for the legal entanglement, it Is stated, is willing to be free rather than be the cause of expense to the townsmen. Spend the 4th at Chevy Chase I^ake.

The steamer Wakefield of the fleet of the Potomac and Chesapeake Steamboat Company of this city is out on the ma rine railway at Skinner's shipyard, at Baltimore, for hull repairs, which are progressing as the boiler of the steamer is being rebuilt. The work on the vessel Is being shoved ahead rapidly in order to get her completed and back on her route between this city and Colonial Beach and Mattox creek as soon as possible. The upper river route, above Colonial Beach,- is being served by the steamer Trenton, which is rather small for the service, although the steamer St- Johns is taking care of a large portion of the business tto Colonial Beach. When the Wakefield left here for Balti more, about a month ago, the steamer City of Milford was placed on the route, but the recent sale of the Milford and her delivery to her purchasers at Baltimore has emphasized the need of the Wake field in the river service, and repairs on her are therefore being pushed.

More Advice By WALT MASON When you have a task ahead do not view the same with dread ?that's unwise; it is vain the rag to chew, or to raise a hullbaloo; no one knows what he can do till he tries. Though the task gives you a pain, it is idle to complain; spring a grin; do not stall around and say: "111 do this some other day." Go to work, serene and gay, and you'll win. They who win the fore most place in the hustling worldly race are the chaps who go at their work with vim, with de termination grim; looking not, till eyes grow dim, for the snaps. At this juncture comes my frau, saying: "Dinner's ready now?come and eat!" If I was a trifling skate I might well pro crastinate, showing to my helpful mate frigid feet. I might say: "Oh, what's the use? Yes terday I ate a goose and a cheese; if you wish to please your hub you won't speak to me of grub; give it to some hungry dub, if you please." But when duty calls I rise, resolution in my eyes and my heart; to the table, stern and calm, then I go and eat a ham, winding up the meal with jam and a tart. This is aye the wiser plan; face your duty like a man?do not shrink! If you stall and hesitate, grumbHing at the rules of fate, we shall find you, soon or late, on the blink! CITY ITEMS.

PREPARING TO BUILD WHARF! Work at Mount Vernon Is Progress ing Rapidly. In spite of the heavy tourist traffic to Mount Vernon by steamer from this city, the work of making ready for the con struction of the new cement wharf is pro gressing rapidly and the Clarke & Win ston Company of this city expect to have the new structure completed in about six weeks or two months. In order to build the new pier it was found necessary to cut down five big trees that for many years have stood on the wharf and made fine shade for those waiting for the boats on hot summer days. The new wharf will be a modern structure of its kind and will be practically indestructible by the elements. The Clarke & Winston Company, which has the contract for the rebuilding of the pier at the naval proving grounds, Indian Head, Md., is pushing the work there. The cutting off of the old piling below the low water mark, which has been in prog ress, has been completed and the capping of the old piles is progressing, a month or more will be required to complete this work. When completed the Indian Head wharf will be practically a new struc ture. Girl's Assailant Still at Large.
