FT FREDERIC J. HASKIN.
WASHINGTON, April 12. (Special
Correspondence.) A flax wheel and a
riistaff with the motto, "Home and
Country," are the insignia of the now
famous organization known as the
DauKhters of the American Revolution.
Nearly 50.000 women are living up to
the meaning of the words. While many
of their grandmothers wove the blue
end brown cloth for family wear, these
women are weaving the wider fabric of
patriotism to cover the whole country.
The woof is found ready for them in
the shape of heroic deeds of ancestors,
homes and haunts of patriots and present-day
appreciation of good deeds.
The warp they furnish In their own
enthusiasm and cleverness, and the re
sult is a fabric that will ultimately
mean much for the Nation.
Preserve Revolutionary Memories.
The movement for forming an organ
ization of women descendants of those
who had fought in the Revolution was
started in "Washington, I. C. in 1890.
An article appeared in a Washington
paper calling attention to the work be
ing done by the men who were de
scended from patriot soldiers and sail
ors of the Revolution, also pointing out
the work that women had done in
those days and stiggesting that a
movement be put on foot to bring those
interested together. This letter was
signed by Mrs. Mary S. Lockwood and
It was the inspiration for the forma
tion of the organization now known
as The daughters of the American
Revolution. The object was to per
petuate tho memory and spirit of men
and women of the Revolutionary
period, to collect and preserve histori
cal hmiI biographical records, documents
nnd relics, and to obtain portraits of
rrnlm-nt American women. From the
frst this has been a National organi
zation. The first meeting was held on the
nnnlversary of the discovery of
America. Mrs. Benjamin Harrison,
wife of the then chief executive, was
unanimously elected president-general.
The design of a woman at the spinn
ing' wheel, wr.s chosen as the official
seal at the suggestion of Miss Mary
Tesha, to correspond with the seal of
the men's organization, which showed
a man at the plow. At Mrs. Flora
Adams Darling's suggestion the motto
'Home and Country" was chosen
Holds Continental Congress.
In March. 1891. the first chapter
formed in the United States was or
ganized in Chicago, with Mrs. Frank
Osborne as regent. The annual meet
ing of the D. A. R.t known as the Con
tinental Congress, is held in Washing
ton, those who may attend officially
being the active officers of the Nation
al Society, one state regent from each
state, and one regent and a delegate
from each chapter in the United States.
Chapters having fifty members are en
titled to one delegate, with an addi
tional delegate for every twenty-five
members over this number. The first
Continental Congress was held on Feb
ruary S2. 1892.
The first definite work they undertook
was the completion of the monument to
Mary Washington, three-fourths of the
necessary Jll.OOO being subscribed by the
P. A. R. Tn 1W7 the general society hon
ored the four founders. Mrs. Mary S.
T.ockwood. Miss Kugenla Washington.

Walworth, with special medals. In 1904
the date of the annual Continental Con
Itress was changed from February 23 to
the anniversary of the Battle of Lexing
ton. April 19.
Many Real Daughters Live.
An effort to discover how many real
daughters of Revolutionary soldiers still
lived met with astonishing results. Many
or the soldiers who were young at the
close of the war married late -in life
and left children to Inherit their names
and honors. Several hundred of these
rinughters were found and admitted to the
local chapters in various parts of the
country, though time has taken heavy toll
of them lately and the number has been
greatly reduced. Bach daughter that the
chapters were able to locate was given a
souvenir spoon made especially for this
purpose, and in one instance it proved to
be the only bit of silver In a desolate
mountain home in Georgia, whose poverty
was later relieved by the care of the local
chapter. Many "real daughters" were
pensioned by special act of Congress, but
moro have been cared for by chapters as
a patriotic obligation.
Hall of National Records.
The president-general of the D. A. R.
lias always been a woman of National
prominence. The first was Mrs. Benjamin
Harrison, who died In office. She was suc
ceeded by Mrs. Adlai Stevenson. The
others were Mrs. Daniel Manning, Mrs.
John W. Foster. Mrs. Charles W. Fair
banks and then Mrs. Donald McLean, the
present incumbent. In lS9t) Mrs. Mary S.
l.ockwood urged that measures be taken
to establish in Washington a hall for
keepins t Me records of the society. The
curncrton was laid with much ceremony
cn April 19. 11-C4. This building fulfills a
dreariL of George Washington, who hoped
tn see a National hall where the records
pertaining to the achievements of the
men of the Nation might be carefuily
preserved. This building, now almost
completed. Is an imposing structure that
will comfortably hold the conventions
and various meetings of the D. A. R..
will provide fireproof space for housing
the records and will stand as a monu
ment to the patriotism of the women of
America who have built it. The grounds
cost a little over J50.ono and the building
between SJ00.00O and .0ot.
Guard Flag, Instill Patriotism.
The chapters throughout the country
have left little undone in the way of pro
moting patriotism and tn commemorating
the deeds of brave men and women. They
have worked among the law-makers until
the National Government and many
states have set about safeguarding the
flag from advertising purposes. They
have purchased and repaired historic
buildings. They have marked the graves
of soldiers and sailors of the Revolution
and of women who performed acts of
heroism. They have offered prises for the
purpose of encouraging the study of his
uuc have had chairs of American history
established in colleges, have sent out cir
culating libraries relative to American
history and have sent out lecturers to
deliver free talks on this subject.
But their most telling work is the
gathering in of children from among
the foreign elements In our population
and teaching them about this country, its
Institutions, its aims, its general great
ness, and,, above all, teaching them a
love and reverence for the flag. Most
gratifying results have been achieved
from this work, and today there is no
small amount of genuine patriotism
among Uncle Sam's little citizens of for
eign birth or of Immediate foreign ex
traction. In fact, there are many in
stances where the young foreigner is al
ready more deeply rooted in the facts
relating to the history of this country
than some native citizens, who are doub
ly unfortunate in that they reside in
remote parts and have parents who have
neglected their education.
Preserves Historic Relics.
The D. A. R. owns much property that
Is historic, having purchased it to pre
vent its desecration by people with mis
taken ideas of what constitutes progress.
They have bought the famous old Ells
worth home at Windsor, Conn.: Nathan
Hale's little schoolhouse at New Lon
don, Conn.; the Royal House, at Medford,
Mass.; the Meadow Garden House, home
of George Walton, a Georgia signer of
the Declaration i of Independence; the
spot at Vineyard Haven, Mass., where
three women blew up a liberty pole in
front of a building to keep the British
from using it as 'a mast; the famous old
blockhouse at Pittsburg, which a rail
road was about to demolish; the Hendrik
Hudson house, on the Hudson; the Put
nam cottage, at Greenwich, Conn.; the
Spalding house, at Lowell, Mass.; the
"Ole Skulehouse." at Chelsea, Mass.: the
old colonial Daggett house, at Pawtucket;
the old powder magazine, at Hamilton.
O.; and the old fort that was named
for Alexander Hamilton in 1791, which
became in turn a jail, a school, a pri
vate dwelling, a clubroom and a museum.
Trees From Thirteen Colonies.
Wherever there is a historic spot to
preserve, "The Daughters" go about tak
ing care of it. They have restored the
banquet-room in Independence Hall, Phil
adelphia, to its 1776 style, and are preserv
ing the home of Betsy Ross. When
there Is no work of this kind, they in
still the gospel of patriotism in some
other way. In San Francisco they set
out an arcade of trees In Golden Gate
Park, one from each of the 13 original
colonies. These trees were generally
taken from historic spots. New Hamp
shire sent maple from the Stark house,
and Connecticut a slip from the famous
Charter Oak. Atlanta has a copy of the
famous Cralgie house, in Cambridge.
Mass.; Savannah has erected a monu
ment to Governor Oglethorpe: Lexington,
Ky., has erected a monument to the
women of Bryan Station: and Rome. N.
Y., has marked the sites of old Forts
Bull and Stanwix.
Monuments to Patriots.
The D. A. R. of Tennessee secured an
appropriation of $5000 a year from the
state to support a chair in American
history at the Peabody Normal Institute.
In Tacoma, Wash., it has undertaken
civic improvement with a will. In New
ton, Mass.. a memorial has been erect
ed to John Eliot, "the apostle to the
Indians." In Roanoke, Va., a monument
has been put up at the grave of General
Andrew Lewis, the hero of the Battle
of Point Pleasant. The chapter at Jack
sonville, Kla.. has preserved the old in
scription on the Spanish monument there.
The Kansas chapters have been Instru
mental in preserving the famous old
Santa Fe trail by having marks set along
its course. The chapter at Bay City,
Mich., is saving the old lighthouse at
the mouth of the Saginaw River, one
of the oldest Government structures in
the country, and the Colonial Chapter, in
Minneapolis, Is doing patriotic settlement
work among the poor of the foreign
Tomorrow Woman's Christian Association.
DEDICATE THEIR PORTICO
Funds Raised by Daughters of Revo
lution to Build Continental Hall.
WASHINGTON. April 17. The fea
tures of today's proceedings of the Con
tinental Congress of the Daughters of
the American Revolution were the
dedication of the memorial portico at
the Memorial Continental Hall and the
collection of contributions to swell the
Continental Hall building fund. The
delegates tonight were given a recep
tion at the Library of Congress.
Practically the entire afternoon ses
sion was devoted to the announcement
of contributions to the building fund
by various state chapters. Already the
organization had accumulated a fund
of $250,000 for this purpose, and It is
belte.ved that with today's contributions
there will be nearly enough, to pay for
The National Society of the Children
of tho American Revolution, a kindred
organization which Is also holding Its
annual convention, will make its an
nual pilgrimage to the tomb of George
Washington at Mount Vernon tomor
row. Mrs. Fred T. Dubois of Idaho,
national president, has requested many
of the daughters to accompany the
children on this trip.
At the dedication the regents of the
13 original states stood upon tho por
tico, which is south of the building,
looking toward the Potomac. C. W.
Needham, president of the George
Washington University, delivered a
short address. Mrs. McLean, president
general, then formally declared the
memorial portico dedicated.
The Children of the American Revo
lution, who were to have participated
In the exercises, were not present, but
were represented by their president,
Mrs. Dubois, who, in an address, said
the children had raised about $2600
toward the memorial fund.
The congress will elect officers to
morrow, and Mrs. McLean's friends are
making the claim that sufficient votes
have been pledged to re-elect her president-general.
War in Tobacco States.
CLARKSV1LLE, Tenn., April 17. The
destruction of tobacco-plant beds in
this district by "night riders" has
reached an alarming stage and it is
feared that, unless the depredations
are stopped, there will be an unusually
light crop. During the past week a
number of plant beds have been salted
and the plants killed. Trainmen have
been threatened with violence If they
hauled tobacco-growers not connected
with the growers' association.
Library for South Bend.
SOUTH BEND. Wash., AprU 17. (Spe
cial.) A library and free reading-room is
now assured for this city, as subscrip
tions and donations exceeding 1000 were
offered the Council last night with the
assurance that the sura would be doubled
by the next Council meeting. The Mayor
will then appoint library trustees and
also arrange for a librarian. There Is
also a strong probability that a library
building will be erected by popular subscription.
Rheumatic Pains Relieved.
Chamberlain's Pain Balm relieves rheu
matic pains and makes sleep and rest
possible, which is alone worth many
times its cost. B. F. Crocker. Esq., now
84 years of age, and for twenty years
Justice of the Peace at Martinsburg,
Iowa, says: "I am terribly afflicted with
sciatic rheumatism in my left arm and
right hip. 1 have used three bottles
of Chamberlain's Fain Halm and it did
me lots of good." For sale by all drug-iliu.
JUT IN GOOD FAITH
Still Squabble Over Mrs. Ed
"NEXT FRIENDS" DOUBTED
Charge That Christian . Scientist Is
Incompetent Vigorously Denied tn
Answer Filed and That the
Complaint Is Scandalous.
CONCORD, N: H., April 17. The charge
that the suit for an accounting of the
property of. Mrs. Mary Baker G. Eddy,
filed March 1, was not brought in good
faith by the so-called "next friends"
named in the suit , is contained in the
answer of the defendants filed hero to
day. The defendants charge that these
"next friends" have been induced to lend
their names for use in the suit "at the
Instigation of certain evil-minded persons
not related in any way to said Mary
Baker G. Eddy or having any interest
in her or her estate."
The answer is a general denial of all
the allegations made by the complainants
in the original action George W. Glover,
Mary Baker Glover and George W.
Baker, who sued as Mrs. Eddy's "next
Litigation Already Involved.
The proceedings today furnished the
latest chapter in the story of the litiga
tion which already has become involved
by the transfer by Mrs. Eddy of all her
property to three trustees Henry M.
Baker,. Archibald McLellan and Josiah E.
Fernald who have petitioned the court
to be substituted as plaintiffs in place
of the original parties, and the answer
to this petition, filed by the latter, declar
ing that the deed of trust was illegal on
account of the alleged incompetency of
the grantor to create the trust.
The specifications in the original bill are
that Mrs. Eddy is and for a long time
has been incompetent to do business v to
undertake transactions conducted in her
name: that the defendants whose answer
was filed today, with other leaders of the
Christian Science Church who were
named in the original bill, have pos
sessed themselves of the property of Mrs.
Eddy and have carried on her business;
that on account of Mrs. Eddy's infirmity
these persons are bound to give account
of all transactions undertaken In her
name, and that the defendants have
wrongfully converted to their own use
property belonging to the church.
To these representations the defendants
filed specific and detailed denial. They
declare that the suit was not brought in
The defendants, Alfred Farlow, Ira O.
Knapp William D. Johnson, Stephen A.
Chase, Joseph Armstrong and Edward A.
Kimball in their answer to the bill of
complaint, deny that Mrs. Eddy's mental
faculties are so impaired by the infirmi
ties of age or otherwise as to render her
Incapable of managing her affairs and
protecting her property against undue i
fluence, control or fraud of others, or
that she is Incapable of taking charge
and managing the present or any other
legal proceedings. They also deny she is
in charge and custody of the defendants,
Frye or of anyone else.
' Allegations Immaterial.
The defendants say that the allegations
in the bill of complaint are in large part
Immaterial, scandalous and irrelevant and
that they ought not to be called on to
make answer thereto, and pray the judg
ment of the Court thereupon. Defendant
Armstrong denies that he is the publish
er of all the Christian Science works, as
alleged, but says that he is a publisher of
Mrs. Eddy's personal writings and that
he had periodically and fully' accounted
for and turned over to her all royalties
and profits from such publications. The
other defendants admitting their respec
tive connection with the Christian Sci
ence organization, deny taht they have
received any moneys or income belonging
to Mrs. Eddy or that such income ts con
trolled or retained In any way by them.
The defendants say they have ' no
knowledge or information respecting the
nature and extent of the property of Mrs.
Eddy and deny that they have ever
wrongfully converted to their own pri
vate use or otherwise misappropriated or
unlawfully diverted any money or prop
erty of Mrs. Eddy.
The defendants further say that they
believe that the 1)111 of complaint 13 not
brought in good faith for the purpose of
protecting her person and property. They
charge that the so-called "next friends"
are such only in name and that' they
have been Induced to loan their names
for use in the suit at the instigation of
certain evil-minded persons, not related
in any way to Mrs. Eddy or having any
interest in her or her estate, and who
are furnishing, money for the prosecution
of the suit for their own evil purposes
and to advance their own selfish inter
ests. These persons, the defendants al
lege, are hostile to Mrs. Eddy and to the
religious principles of which she Is the
Want Proof Produced.
The defendants demand proof of all the
material matters complained of which
are not admitted specifically, and they
say they ought not to make this or any
answer to the bill because It is multifari
ous, vague and indefinite and filled with
Immaterial, scandalous and irrelevant
matter and does not set forth any cause
of action under the State laws of New
Besides the Boston defendants. C. A.
Frye, Irving C. Tomlinson, H. S. Her
ring and Lewis C. Strang, of Concord,
the New Hampshire resident, among
the defendants named in the original
bill In equity, also filed their answer
today. Mr. Frye says he has been In
OREGON'S MOST BEAUTIFUL DRIVEWAYS

the employ of Mrs. Eddy for about 25
years, for a considerable part of the
time as private secretary. During all
the time her -house at Concord and all
other houses in which she has resid
ed; together with all persons employed
or connected therewith, have always
been under the absolute control and
direction of Mrs. Eddy.
Mrs. Eddy determines for herself
whom she will see and the length of
time that will be given for that pur
pose, according1 to Mr. Frye's answer,
and the defendant denies that he ever,
personally or in conjunction with oth
ers, refused to allow any one to see
Mrs. Eddy or that he limited the time
to be allowed to persons desiring to
confer with her, except in accordance
with the rules prescribed by Mrs. Eddy
for the conduct of her household and
business. The answer of Strang is
practically the same as that of Frjr,
while the answers of Tomlinson end
Herring vary only insofar as theJr re
lations with .Mrs. Eddy differ from
those of Frye and Strang.
