HITCH IN IM OF
Members Bent on Reform
: May Kill Political Feature of
Daily Report and Make it
Cover Proceedings Clearly.
By Ralph M. Whiteside.
(Publlibart' fm i Lm4 Wlr.l
Washington, Sept. 1. This Is cer-
tainly a reform congress. Not the least
.notable reform Inaugurated is In con
nection with the Congressional Record.
.Heretofore that able and enterprising
publication has led off with speeches
; never delivered In congress, under the
time honored "lean to point" custom.
.But now this is to be changed. The
.actual proceedings of congress here
after are to be given the best portion
In the paper and the 'lean to point"
speeches are to go In the back of the
.book where nobody need look at then
If they don't want to.
Naturally the senate proceedings are
to tak . precedence and will start with
the front page.
It is now within the ljmita of hope
that. In time a further reform will be
Inaugurated and the Record will ac
tually be a verbatim report of what
' happens in congress. It would seem
that the government does enough for
a statesman when It pays the postage
on his 'campaign documents without do-
'lng his printing as well.
If the "lean to point" part should be
cut off It would save many thousands
of dollars in the expense of the gov
ernment printing office, for which the
public gets no returns whatever.
Would riy at night.
I wrote recently of the work which
is being done by Uncle Sam's airmen
and ventured the opinion that when
the time came for the test of aerial
warfare the United States would not
be found lacking.
Added proof of the soundness of my
proposition Is found in the announce
ment that the young aviators at govern
ment school are now preparing to make
night flights. They are looking for a
satisfactory searchlight that will en
able them to guide their machines over
the" country surrounding the aviation
'field without danger.
Moonlight flights have for some time
been dlscuosed by the young officers
.who comprise the first generation of
army birdmen, and the experience to
be had fcpm expeditions after imag
inary enemies will, it Is thought, be
Invaluable. Probably the most Import
ant part of the night flights is the
election of a searchlight and fuel that
will be reliable, compact and easily op
erated. Trying Out lights.
Po far the search for a light has been
confined to acetylene gas, which can
be carried in small tanks, but there
has been talk of the Invention of spe
cial fuel for the work that will enable
the aviators to make flights of almost
When the night flights are started it
4s planned to keep bright bonfires at
each corner of the aviation field, for
even in the daytime it is difficult to
eject a smooth place to land. In this
way. It la argued, there would be , no
chance for an aviator, confused by the
darkness surrounding him, to lose his
bearings and be forced to descend either
In ignorance of the ground or to re
main In flight till dawn.
A searchlight attached to an aero
plane could be operated by the aviator,
or, perfectly by a passenger.
Kany Professional Men.
There are 1200 registered physicians
In this city, according to the report of
Dr. Henry 8. Prltchett, of the Carnegie
Foundation; there are more than 600
lawyers, including government claim
agents, patent attorneys, and others;
160 members of the Architectural club,
of whom less than 60 per cent are es
tablished practitioners of their profes
Most Of the professional men uphold
the view that the young professional
man should not stay here. A few, how
ever, say their field Is not overcrowded
for the right sort or man, out say tne
ordinary physician or lawyer has not
as good a chance to earn a good Income
here as elsewhere.
' Electing Two Senators.
"National politics may be occupying
the minds of voters in other parts of
the country, but down In Louisiana the
people are engaged in the campaign for
the election of two United States sen
ators." remarked R. H. Wenger. a prom
inent business man of New Orleans.
vernor Sanders and Representative
Broiissirrd, who are running against
each other for the neat now occupied by
Benator Thornton, are making a vigor
ous campaign. The governor was elect
ed senator, but declined, trtfil Thornton
was appointed. Now Sanders if anx
ious to be elected again, and he started
last week on a round of the state.
Uroussard is also campaigning, and the
fight Is a hot one.
"While personally I favor Broussard
and shall vote for him, I am inclined
to believe that Banders will win, be
cause he has the machine with him. It
looks as if he will get the vote of New
Orleans, while Broussard will surely
get the vote in other parts of the state.
It may be that Sanders' majority in
New Orleans in the primary next Jan
uary will be. small enough for Brous
sard to overcome.
"The contest for the other seat in
the senate is between the Incumbent,
Benator Fos.ter, and Representative
Ransdell. It also may be a close one.
The chances favor Senator Foster, but
Itansdell has many friends, and it would
not surprise anyone to see him- win.
CALLED "FOREIGN RAT,"
CREAT0RE PUTS UP FIGHT
, ii" i
Milwaukee, Wis,, Sept. 2. Creatore,
the Italian bandmaster, and James Mal
lev an Insurance man, were arrested
foliowlng a fist fight In the downtown
corners because the musician was called
a "foreign rat"
Malley asserted Creatore Jabbed el
v bows Into his ribs and he resented this
1 treatment with language that did not
trlke the bandmaster as pleasant.
Creatore said the other insulted his
' mother's memory and he wanted a duel.
Both were released on ball, but Mallory
was sent away first In order that the

NEW YORKERS TO
Protestant Churches Recover
From Lethargy of Summer
and Prepare for Season of
By D. V. Francis. .
(Pnbltohcri" Prt UMd Wire.)
New v York, Sept. 2. The summer
season Is about over and within a, week
or two the churches will resume their
warfare against sin In this great city.
For two months or so along about this
time of the year so far as the regular
protestant churches are concerned New
York would have to be satisfied with
slim rations so far as religion Is con
cerned. By the activities of the Evangelistie
committee of New York city, and slm
ular agencies, however, it is probable
that more New Yorkers hear the
preached word than at any other season
of the year.
Bulletin No. 2 recently issued by the
Evangelistic committee shows 11 tent
centers where work has already been
carried on, wHh meetings in English,
Italian, Scandinavian, Bohemian, and
Finnish-Swedish, seven centers with
special services for boys, and nine for
children; S3 centers with open-air meet
ings in Kngllsh, five others especially
for negroes, seven conducted in Italian,
four in German,, one for Russians, and
one out-door location for children; serv
ices for adults in three halls, an for
children in two; 14 shop meetings with
services in English, ten In Spanish, five
in Italian, and one In Greek. This
means a total of 115 centers of- Work
conducted by Evangelistic committees
of New York city.Jn addition to which
they supply an evangelist to visit pris
ons and hospitals.
And this is only one of the summer
religions campaigns In New York. These
meetings are conducted by some of the
most famous men In the churches of
the world and they accomplish a power
Sr. Clifford Some.
Rev. Dr. Clifford, the famous Eng
lish Baptist leader, has returned home
from his American tour and Is telling
the fcondeners something about this
country. I see this in a recent English
paper which is worth reading. Dr. Clif
ford said: "Two of the great disad
vantages In this United States were the
reporters, who wanted to get the doctor
out of bed in (order to get his opinion
of the general1 condition of the people,
and the mosquitoes of the Rocky moun
tains, which gave him a great deal of
Even more perplexing was the new
language which Is being created and
spoken, especially in Chicago. Dr.
Clifford is thinking of making a diction
ary of the queer words he heard.
"The president of the University of
Chicago," said he. "told me, in the
course of conversation, that somebody
or other was 'grouchy.' When I asked
htm what a 'grouchy' person meant or
was like, he replied, 'An individual that
Is bitter and is always grumbling.' "Ah,
I said, 'the sort of man I should de
scribe as an unripe gooseberry." "
Family Hot "Outfit,"
He was surprised to find a man's
wife and children described as part of
his "outflf'-an expression, which to
his mind, savored of barbarism. An
other expression Dr. Clifford had to
have explained to him was "Yapper,"
signifying one who frequently made
foolish and disagreeable remarks.
Dr. Clifford hopes for the unity of
churches, and in this connection told
the following anecdote: At Peterbor
ough, in Ontario, he laid the foundation
stone of a new Baptist church. It hap
pened that a peal of bells had Just been
hung in the tower of the Anglican
church and they were to have been
rung for the first time on coronation
day. The rector, however, cancelled
this arrangement, and, as Dr. Clifford
declared the stone of the Baptist church
to be "well and truly laid." the Angli
can bells began to chime "The Church's
"The- rector," said Dr. Clifford, "was
present, and ehowed by his speech that
tho atmosphere of the new country Is
destroying the barriers between church
and church and Introducing the possi
bility of a great and real unity."
Watching Health of Pope.
Catholics throughout the world have
followed the bulletins tilling of the
health of Plus X with absorbing Inter
est, not only because of the extraordi
nary affection his character has ey
erywherei'lpsplred, but also because of
the anxiety as to the possible effects
in Spain. Portugal and Franoe of a
change in the occupant of the chair of
St. Peter at a time when ultra-secularism
Is raising many grave issues In
Such references, to conditions as have
appeared of late in the representative
Catholic organs, like the "Tablet,"
"Croix" and "Observatore Romano," are
marked with great discretion, but indi
cate plainly a gaaeral desire to avoid
further strife in what are known as
the "disaffected areas."
It is alleged on high authority in
Catholic circles that In the event of a
vacancy in the pontificate the choice of
a sacred college would fall upon. Cardi
nal Merry del Val father than upon
Cardinal Rampolla. the able and re
sourceful adviser of Leo XIII.
This, it is intimated, implies a change
of view of late on the part of half a
dozen of the most Important princes of
Champions of Cardinal Rampolla'a
methods, as distinguished from those
of Cardinal del Val, continue to urge
their utility in coping with the situa
tions in Lisbon, Madrid and Paris.
But It" is pointed out here that most
of the opposition to Cardinal del Val's
tactics is giving way as the character
and program of the brilliant young pa
pal secretary of state become : more
clearly understood at the Vatican and
In the capitals of countries wherp non
Catholie element have . created tern
porary misconceptions. "
CnnrofcM Beport on Conditions.
Three large missionary societies
which have about closed their fiscal
years are the American board, the for
eign body of Congregatlonallsts. the
Foreign Christian., . representing the
large Disciples body, and the Protestant
Episcopal. At this time, less than a
month before the end. in the cases of
two of them, the outlook Is anything
but favorable. '
Disciples were tempted, says a state
ment Just issued, to make larger plans
this year, than last, owing to the Lay
men's missionary movement and the In
creased prosperity obtaining In the mid
dle west, but they desisted, although
there' were importunate appeals from
the fields. At the end of nine months
disciples find 202 fewer churches to
have contributed and receipts to be $10,
000 behind last year. It was announced
an effort would be made to make the
total $500,000, but the society says it
sees little hope of attaining it .unless
there is improvement.
