Obstructed View Cut Down.
WASHINGTON". Jan 29. Defying the
police, Mrs. John B. Henderson, wife
of ex-Senator Henderson, of Missouri,
had two laborers from the Henderson
estate cut down a large tree on a pub
lic thoroughfare last night because It
obstructed her view of the street.
Colonel Truman H. Lanham, superin
tendent of parkings for the district,
said tonight her action had been re
ported to the police.
Mrs. Henderson, who stood by hold
ing a lantern while her workmen oper
ated, declared that for several months
she had requested the authorities to
look after the offending tree, but that
thov had paid little attention.
"Last night." she continued, "with
two of my laborers 1 went to the
street corner to clear rubbish left on
the sidewalk. While there I deter
mined to finish the whole job. I
ordered the tree sawed down and my
Instructions were followed."
She declared her willingness to stand
ll:e consequences of her act.
nmtn'ii From First rage.)
Kiore have passed and after two suc
cessive Presidential campaigns with
ilence on the subject as the issue, the
country Is asked to make a change.
Vc are asked to meet a recrudescence
of opposition to our Philippine policy
and the threat to turn back the hands
tf time: to reverse the verdict of a
d"cade and to give up all our achieve
ments for a new experiment, which
can only result in confusion and hu
miliation and involve us in interna
tional complications and bring us again
with damaged prestige to an aban
donment of that policy.
Philippine People Benefited.
"Those of us who, by reason of our
information and experience, believe
that a reversal of that policy now will
lead to National humiliation and em
barrassment, should not keep our
mouths closed, because we have a right
to appeal to those who are coming
into power in the next Administration
the Executive and the legislators
to inform themselves well before they
depart from a course which has been
fraught with the utmost benefit to the
people of the Philippine Islands. The
Philippine Islands are not yet ready for
self-government and no influence
could be more detrimental upon their
future than the enactment of the meas
ure now pending In the House of ltep
resentattves providing for a change in
their government."
Senators Button and Pomercne an
"lpresentat!ve Cannon also made ad
dresses. Justice. Day, of the Supreme
Court, was toastmaster and Justices
McKenna. Lurton and Lamar were
among the guests at the Speaker's
Alaasnl f.reet President.
The Wash inrton Vale Alumni Asso
ciatton at its. annual banquet tcntcht
creeled and bade frell to President
Taft. A long cheer, with "Taft, Toft,
TNft" at the end welcomed the Presl
dent to the banquet hall. and the
strains of the "Boola Song" and of
"Here's to Good Old Yale, brink Her
Down." with other college songs, rang
out during the night.
The President declared that when
next he met with the Washington Yale
alumni it would be as "a member of
the faculty come" back to tell of the
needs of the university." Whether the
faculty at Tale would treat him as a
freshman, he said, he did not know.
He spoke in a Jovial mood and of his
commission duties as Brent professor
of law at Yale, saying- he was doubt
ful as to what he was to do. but that
it meant something to have been on the
bench long enough to have acquired
the reputation of knowing all about
Modern Profeasorn Attacked. '
"But it is a different matter." he
added, "when you have to bo examined
every day by a lot of bright young
students. If you can restrain their
curiosity sufficiently the position may
be fairly satisfactory."
Ha then entered upon an attack on
some of the modern professors of po
litical economy, "whose heads are in
the clouds and who have lost all sense
of proportion as to what is valuable
to present civilization and what we
must anchor to."
"I want to help." he said, "to bring
the students of one university to real
lie what it means to be an American
now and what benefits this country
with its Constituflon gives us. I think
we are enjoying many benefits without
realizing how much of self-sacrlflce it
took to bring them about."

sisting of valuable timber holdings in
Northern California, which resulted in

tary of the state conservation com-
isslon. took a new turn today when

cial.) Bracing himself with a poker,
one end of which rested on a cook

light. John A. Hogs, of the Vancouver
National Bank, received a severe

the assembly-room in the Women of
Woodcraft Hall last night, where the
Portland Rotary Club held its first
annual exposition. From florists dis
play to furniture exhibit, "made in
Oregon": from pickles to plumbing:
stereopticons to structural steel, the
exhibit ran about the hall and lor an
hour the members of the club and their
invited ladies aud friends passed, about
examining the displays. Then each
member having a display was given
three minuts on the rostrum in which
to explain his business ami Its merits.

Election of Saulsbury, Demo
crat, Gives His Party Cer
tain Margin of Two.
One Each to Be Chosen in West Vir
ginia and Xew Hampshire and
N Two in Illinois Bacon
Certain of Scat.
W SHIN"GTON'. Jan. 29. With the
election today of Wlllard Saulsbury as
United States Senator from Delaware,
the Democratic strength in the next
Senate swung from the precarious fig
ure of 48, or exactly one-half of ths
Senate, to the safer total of 49. a ma
jority of two.
Mr. Saulsburys election, added to the
victory recently secured in Tennessee,
assures the Democratic party absolute
control of the Senate after March 4.
The vote of Vice-President Marshall
would have been the deciding factor in
any event, but the addition of another
Democratic vote to the column gives
the party leaders what they believe to
be a safe margin for tariff and execu
tive action.
Three States in Doubt.
Contests still exist In the Legisla
tures of New Hampshire, West Vir
ginia and Illinois, with a total of four
Senators to be elected, about whose
political affiliations doubt now exists.
A victory in any one of these states
would strengthen the Democratic party
so materially that the Senate would be
removed completely from the element
of uncertainty.
The attitude of the Progressives and
the Progressive Republicans upon tar
iff matters is as yet unknown, but the
margin of strength promised to the
Democrats makes it unnecessary, it is
believed, to count upon any combina
tions with the .'Progressives.
Bacon's R --election Certain.
Of the entire membership of 96 Sen
ators. 63 will hold over beyond March
4. Of these S2 are Republicans and
21 Democrats. The terms of 32 Sen
ators expire In March and there is in
addition one vacancy In Illinois. Thus
far 17 Democratic Senators have been
elected and the election of Senator
Bacon in Georgia is certain, making 18
Democrats to take the oath of office
March 4. The opposition forces, in
cluding both the Republicans and the
Progressives, have elected 11 new sen
ators. The Senate after March 4 will
stand as follows, if the deadlocks are
not broken In Illinois, New Hampshire
and West Virginia: Democrats 49; Re
publicans and Progessives 43; vacan
cies 4.
Texan Tells Bankers They Should
Drive Both Ont of Politics by
Taking Hand Themselves.
PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 29. "Anarchy
and destruction of property similar to
that which occurred in the French rev
olution will previal in this country un
less the present trend of politics Is
checked," declared ex-Senator Bailey,
of Texas, who made the principal ad
dress at the annual banquet of the
Pennsyuvania Bankers' Association
here tonight.
The former Senator said the present
tendency Is to teach the people to look
to the Government for support -instead
of teaching them to support the Gov
ernment. He deplored extravagances
of National, state and municipal gov
ernments and urged his hearers to
drive out both the "bosses" and the
"demagogues." who, he declared, are
supplanting the "bosses" from power,
by taking a proper Interest in public
"Four yearS the presence and power
of the 'boss' deterred you from that
participation in politics which every
good citizen ought to take," said
Bailey, "and now that tile 'boss' is dis
appearing the 'demogogue' drives you
from your proper place in the councils
of your party and your state. Instead
of permitting either the 'boss' or 'dem
agogue' to drive you out of politics,
it is your dirty to drive them out of
politics; and that would be easy enough
if you take a proper interest in pub
lic affairs."
