Inspector J. W. Mattingly, chief cf the dclecthe force of the District, was removed at a late hour jesterday after hoon Detective Robert II Boardman was Eimultantously elevated to fill the re tponslble position which was vacated by reason of Mattlnglj's removal. Though persons comertant with local police and detective affair had antici pated just such a change for at least two months, the actual announcement of the fact jesterdav was a great surprise- to iv erj one. Ei en Detcctiv e Boardman, upon whom will devolve the responsibilities luid onerous duties of the detective ser vice, was unaware of his promotion until long after the news had been given to the press. He was at his home, sleeping after a hard morning's work and knew nothing of what had happened until he reached police heaquarters early in the evening He wa then surrounded bv his colleagues in the detective service and thovvered with 'congratulations. The announcement of the removal of Inspector Mattinglv was made public at 6 o'clock. Shortly before that time the documents containing the recommenda tions tf Major Svlv ester reached Presl Jent Wight of the Board of District tommisfcloners Their contents were not .news to Mr. Wight, as the whole matter had been brought to him frequentb during recent verbal conferences with Major Sjh ester. The recommendations met with his ap proval and he gave them the stamp of Ms authority without hesitation They were then given iiubllclty as follows: '1 have the honor to recommend, that: "Sergeant II. C. Jones be reduced to private, class 2, at his own request, vice Thomas Goucher, placed on the retired list "Robert II.

Resptctfullj, "RICHARD SYLVESTER, "Major and Superintendent." When i-een bv a Times reporter. Major Silvester said the change was made at the request of Inspector Mattingly. He explained that during the enr in which Inspector Mattlnglj had been In chirgo of the detective bureau he had given the utmost satisfaction, and that no cause for dissatisfaction could be found with him "Shortly after I became major," sati Major Silvester. "Inspector Mattlngli came to me and told me he would like to be relieved of duti if I hid ani dis position to ask for his reslgmtion. I asked" him why he desired to be relieved of his duties, and he replied that, with increasing age, he felt too much anxietj was attached to the position He de-Ired to be returned to the t-econd class for duti at the district attornei's office In sending cases to the district attornei we find that thej are vcrj often lacking in little points. They must bo perfectcJ, and It was Inspector Mtttingli's dutv to attend to that matter before he be came inspector. He Is dclrous of being returned to the same position, and his wishes In the m Uter will be granted "In looking around for a new In spector," continued Major Silvester, "we sought the moat experienced among the older men in the service Our ejes nat urally fell lirst upon the lieutenants Thej did not desire the position, and said that the would feel more peaceful nnd better dlsimsed If left to uttend to the precinct work "The choice thereupon fell upon Detec tive Boardman as probably one, of the mobt experienced of the men in the pres ent detective service He Is joung, active and energetic. Is thoroughly conversant with the details of the local police depart ment and the detectlie bureau He has seen service in other cities and under stands the workings of their police de partments as well H Is familiar with local criminal dita, knows the 'photo graphs' and hns himself wprked but many difficult cases During recent cars he has had charge of the w ork of recov erlng stolen blc.vcles 111 1S3S 288 blciclch were stolen. Of this number 231 were recov ered, mostli through the instrumentality of Detective Boardman " In speaking of his characteristics jes terday. Major Silvester said: "He Is young, educated, energetic and has had long experience with local affairs and laws." Mr. Boardman was horn in this city In 1SG1 He attended the public schools until he w as sixteen j cars old, when he became a plate printer. He was afterward em ployed In that rapacity at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, being an expert in his line He entered the local police department December G, 1SSG, on the same day that the late Major William G Moore became chief of police. He became a second class private Januarj 1, ISM, and was" trans ferred to the detective buteau in October of the same jcar. Major Silvester has, nf course, not overlooked the office of night Inspector of detectives, and the mere fact that he has brought Detective Joseph Carter back to headquarters is indicative of his appoint ment to till the -vacancy made by the promotion of Night Inspector Boardm-in.

The suit is over a clilm for $XS,000, which whs awarded the La Abra Mining Companj In1S70, and which Is now locked up In the v-iults of the Treasury of the United States When the suit was originally tried, the monei was awarded to the mining companv. but, on account of some Irregularities discovered afterward, the Trcasurj officials were restrained from pajing It out bj the CourUoi Appeals of the District of Columbia f - Argument In the case of R.

The District Commissioners hive de nied the request mido bj' Fritz Reuter, the restauranteur and proprietor of the Rathskeller, at No -137 Penns) lav nla Av e nue, through J. F. Manning . Co for a whlto marble pavement In front of his premises. Computing Engineer Hunt, to whom the request was referred, states that the owner of the propert and the contractors acknowledge that the existing walk is in excellent condition, nnd for that reason he Informed the Commissioners that he thought the endeavor was to exceUor dif fer from other walks on the Avenue In making his recommenditlois to the Board of Commiss'oners Engineer Com missioner Beach says. "It Is not believed advisable to grant 'this request for several reasons: "A white marbla sldewa'k wou d be very objectionable during Summer months on account of the glare of the sun; "It has been the policy of the office for some time past to prevent the construc tion of conspicuous sidewalks, parties iiaving been refused permission to color the cement sidewalks brown, red or blue, as the case might be, aniTit Is not be Jieved advisable to make exceptions. "If the Commissioners glve.pcrmisslon to-11 the marble walk, thei Maintenance of it would devolve upon tho District, and, nny cuts were mado or slabs broken, the District would be put to considerable expense to provide other pieces of mar ble to patch the remainder of the side walk." Tsvo Pointed QneHtlonM AnsvvereiU. What Is the use of making a better ar ticle than jour competitor If jou cannot get a better price for It? Ans As there Is no difference in tho price the public will buyonla the better, so that while our profltsT-may' be smaller on a single sale thej-wlll be much greater in the aggregate. How can jou get the public to know 1 our make Is the best? If both articles are brought prominently before the public both are certain to be tried and the public will verj quickly pass judgment on them and use only the bet ter one. This explains the large sale on Cham berlain's Cough Remedy. The people hav e been using It for years" and have found ?that it can always be depended upon They may occasionally take up with some tfashlonable novelty put forth with ex aggerated claims, but are -certain to re Uurn to the one remedy that they know to be reliable, and for coughs, colds and croup there is nothing equal to Chamber .lain's Cough Remedy.
