rf disappointment- Almost every one felt
.nmihlne was wrong.
There was prohibition, ns well ns Inhlbl
iinn In more senses than one. The Acad
Imvomclals. roused by the criticism of the
m.iaue of the seven art associations, had
Stamped on the "lid." and no less a person.
r"l,n John Frederick Lewis himself,
Hi IJled lawyer and president of the Fine Arts

that this would be an Incentive to those In
clined tp dress In scanty costumes. So It
ms called Lo Hal du Dernier Crl, the ball
el the last word.
.tio, rnatumes. many thought, were a
trifle disappointing. There was no central
mU nnd no one knew Just what to wear.
They were colorful and picturesque, In
dividually, as usual : only, as a whole, they
were meaningless. It Is very hard to dress
like the last word.
ALL WELL TJEHAVED.
Tou can never tell when some one will
find something to criticise In what seems to
be the most harmless thing. Nevertheless,
It Is hard 'to believe that, any fault-finders
dlicovercd anything at the spring ball nt
which to point the finger of censure. Jllsn
Janet IUchards, who stirred up tho trouble
over the masque, was not there, for ono
thing, and both men and women kept well
within the bounds of propriety for another.
The nearest thing to an extreme was a

falf-halred young artist, noted for his Ideas

Ijss futurism that made Morton'' Schamberg,
ponsor for the modern art exhibition now
in.'feel perfectly at home. And three times
the "Academy fling" was danced with every
tit of its usual swing.
' v SOME WHO WERE THERE.
It' was not that the notables and the com

there; they were. Hugh Breckenrldge,

The whole trouble was that the partici

"What do they think it Is, a Sunday

Oh. yes, there was another trouble.
Frank Buchanan, producer of the art

Police, Court Chronicles
A loudly dressed man, with a little hat
and a big cigar, ran In the 2d and Christian
streets station and told the sergeant there
was a gambling house Just across the street
In fulr blast. He Intimated It was con
ducted under the guise of a billiard parlor.
The sergeant gasped.
"Yes, it's' true," declared the caller, "they
cleaned me out of a thousand dollars."
Just then two ppol balls dropped from his
pockets and rolled over the floor. The'
complainant gasped and said the balls must
havo accidentally dropped Into his pocket as
he was leaning against the table.
Ills excuse was regarded suspiciously.
The sergeant ordered two cops to search
him. They found two pool cues stuck un
der his raincoat. He couldn't explain how
they came to be up there and was Informed
officially that he was "pinched."
The sergeant then sent for Sam Lee, pro-
prletor of the 'billiard parlor. He was
amazed to hear that he was suspected of
conducting a gambllrg house, and invited
the police to Investigate. They did so and
found nothing that looked like a game of
The prisoner, who gave his name as
Eddie McGlnnts, was later arraigned before
The Judge noticed that he was somewhat
wobbly In the legs. McGlnnls seemed to
forget all about hjs complaint against the
gambling house and said that he had been
In a trance for the last two days.
Leo withdrew the charge against him and
the Magistrate sentenced McGlnnls to play
a game of pool with detective Martlnelll.
"If you lose," said the Judge,' "you take
five days In Jail. If you win you're free."
The game attracted an Interested au
dience, and after many close calls McGlnnls
won. He lighted a big cigar, stuck his
hat on the side of his head anoj walked out
In the sunshine with an air of victory.

POLICE SERGEANT -CATCHES POSSUM
IN CHASE THROUGH CITY STREETS
200-Pound Guardian of Law Refuses to Be Outdone by Vis
itor, Which Brings Back Memories of His Virginia
Boyhood Animal on Exhibition
In the murky light of early dawn a dark,
swiftly moving object brushed against Po
lice Sergeant Harold P. Mortimer, who was
resting at the corner ot 15th street and
Olrard avenue. The startled cop saw It
scuttling In the direction of Broad street
and he decided, first, that It was not part
Of his dream and, next, to give chase.
The mysterious object zo to Broail
street before the policeman had covered
half the distance, but he saw It approach a
telegraph pole, carefully Inspect It, and
then climb with amazing speed.
Breathless, a.nd with curiosity sharp
ened by his efforts to catch the thing, the
cop stood under the pole. Grinning down
at him was a real possum. Its fur bristling,
crouched defia'ntly on a cross-tree.
Mortimer cogitated. His weight was.
something over 200 pounds and the possum
was perched very high. But then, he was
"originally from Vlr-gln-la, suh," and no
possum had ever got the best of him. He
thought of how many pelts he had gathered
In his youth and then defiantly started to
shin up the pole. The possum objected to
being captured and made this as evident
as It could to the cop. But that Individual
was determined, and succeeded In getting
hold of the possum before It could slip
down the pole.

TAMPERING WITH JURY
CHARGE IN CAMDEN SUIT
Entire Panel Dismissed After
Arrest of One Trial of
Tho accusation that an attempt had
been made to Influence a Juror In a damage
suit against tho Atlantic City Railroad
todny caused Judge Lloyd, of tho Circuit
Court, Camden, to dismiss an entire Jury
panel of 70 men and to call off nil trials
by Jury until the September term of court.
James White, a member ot the panel
from Gloucester City, N. J., was com
mitted to Jail In default of $2000 ball, and
a verdict of J2500 against the Atlantic City
Railroad was set nsldc. It Is probable that

murder of Elizabeth Dunbar, an nctress,

Dismissal ot the Jury panel and the ar
rest of White was made today following
an lncst!gatlon by Prosecutor Kraft of a
report that dn attempt had been made to
bribe n member of the panel to attempt to
Influence a Juryman In the case against
the Atlantic City Railroad.
William Costello, of Gloucester City, sued
the Atlantic City Railroad for injuries,
when ho was hit by a train on February 4
at Wan en's Crossing, Atlantic City.
It Is charged by Prosecutor Kraft that
White waa promised a suit of clothes If
he would try to Influence tho Jury in the
caso to render a verdict against the rail
road. White Is nllegcd to have told Cos
tello that he would do what he could if
"there was a champagne supper In It for
him." Subsequently tho Jury rendered a
ertllct of $2500 against the railroad.
Judge Lloyd dismissed the panel when

ATLANTIC CITT", May 25. When
Hotel Tray more wan opened last July mnr
people doubted whether It would pay, and
even those who did think It might be
financial success argued that there -wont
be no large hotels built in this city for wt
least five years.
Since that time two mammoth flre-jroC
hotel structures have been started and1 mm
rapidly approaching completion.
The Breakers, on the site of the olft
Hotel Rudolf, is so far advanced that the
opening has been set for tho middle ot June,
and the boardwalk addition to the Bt.
Charles Is receiving Its finishing touche
nnd will be opened about the same time.
The Traymore Hotel Company has also
had preliminary plans drawn for an addi
tion to the present hotel that will be at
most as large as the original structure. It
has acquired the old Hotel Windsor site
and will begin the erection of a huge hotel
The rotllng-chalr business Is In deep dis
tress these days. The owners of the chairs,
and the human motors who propel them, say
there Is no profit In operating them at the
rate of 30 cents an hour, but visitors are
delighted with the drop from 60 .cents and
are patronizing them more than ever;
The "chair pushers" have formed a. Union
and are endeavoring to keep "floaters," yho
drop In here for a. few days' work, front
Bridge parties are the rage among the
women nt tne present time. Knitting seems
to have fallen out of favor, nnd but few
women are seen doing "fancy work" of any
kind. ( ,
There seems to be no set fashion In the
dog line this year. Poms, Boston bull ter
riers, toy poodles and Italian greyhounds
all vie with each other In the race for
popularity, and tho fair owners who hold
them In leash all think that they have the
only breed that Is the proper thing to lead
along the Walk. Of course, "mllady'a" pet
dog always occupies a seat of honor when
a rolling chair Is used for the afternoon
promenade. A new wrinkle has been ob
served when a pet dog and a baby are th
equal favor In a family. On the Infantas
perambulator a seat Is built for the dog, '
so that It can get the same benefit from the
sea air as the baby. One male promenader
Is attracting much attention by his pet
French poodle, of a peculiar shade of brcwri.

The satisfaction o
dressed, trie mere
feeling that your clothes look right,
is worth something to every man.
Possibly you have nothad
clothes that put Poise in your Pose.
Possibly you have been econ
omizing to the point of extrava
gance, not paying enough for your
clothes, and thereby throwing away
the asset of "appearance," which,
you should have.
If you shave been paying $15 or
$18 for a suit, resolve to p"v $20
this time an'd- bring it here and see
how much more it brings for the few
additional dollars invested, r invested,
t 1 .1
mind you, not merely spent.
We will ive you full value Suits at every price $15, $18, $20, $22
up to $35, with especial emphasis on the $20 grades.
