' THE EVENING JTIMSTUESDTrTSEPTEMBEB 10, J 895
This warm weather
we are "daily" clothings morei
people than we did on the
corresponding day last year.
There's a reason for it.
Prettier styles, handsomer
patterns, and better gar
ments for the price than
ever before. Our $ 1 0 Suits
look as well and will give
as much satisfaction as those
formerly sold at $15.
The $ 1 5 ones equal to
former $20 ones, and so on
up to the best. Always
more value for the money
than in previous seasons?
DERBYS? Yes, in all
standard blocks and colors.
Same grade as the agencies
get $4 and $5 for, and as
fully guaranteed. Isn't that
dollar or two worth saving?

A. meeting of the Northeast Washington

In opening the .meeting President
Tucker reicrrcd to tte killing of Mr.
Mclntyre at Langdon station, and said it
was singular that-jlha road was not t
blame when tho train was running blxty
miles an hour.
The president, in speaking on the subject
or grade crossings )said that he went out
the nlghurolliiwluKiTlie Times' inspection,
when watchmen were! found at E street,
Massachusetts aeiiuc; G and H streets.
He round no watchman on E street, though
there were men atMassachusettsavecv'eand

Kelly bad acknowledged his mistake In
saying there were watchmen at all the
Secretary Sower butts said he asked Lieut.
Kelij to go at that time and see whether
watchmen were on duty at E street and
at Massachusetts avenue. Lieut. Kelly
went, and when he returned said he was
amazed and ashamed to liud that watch
men were not on duty as required. He
had been informed from sources he be
lieved to be thoroughly reliable that the
watchmen were at the gates at every
crossing Just as he reported.
"Then," said Mr. Sowerbutts, "I asked:
" "Who was your lnfon..Jt? '
"General Agent AUej.of the Baltimore
and Ohio, railroad," was his reply. "He
plainly lied to me about the matter."
A resolution was adopted requesting the
Commissioners to compel the Baltimore &
Ohio Itallroad to keep a watchman at the
E street crossing.
After considerable discussion, it was de
cided to recommend no particular individ
ual for the poeition of school trustee.
Mr. Millard, on a question ot privilege,
referred to the episode between blmscirnnd
Mr. Frlzzell atthelatt meeting. Heunder
siood Mr. Frizzcll to fay that he was a liar.
He now had his witnesses here to prove
that what he then stated was true.
