I At a dinner given In New York in 1912 to do honor to William Dean Howells upon his 75th birthday, Wm. Howard Taft, then president of the United States, lauded the guest as "the greatest living American writer and novelist.' He was the dean of American let-tei-s; post, essayist, dramatist and edi tor, as well as a weavor of fiction. Beginning his first book, "Poemsr of Two Kriends," Just before the Civil war, Mr. Howells had completed and published more than 71 volumes at the time of his death, besides acting as ed itor of various publications, crossing the ocean eighteen times Jn search of material for his novels, and writing) essays, criticisms and magazine artl- j cles. . ' Born In Martin's Ferry, Ohio, In 1837, he served his literary apprentice ship as a composer, reporter afftl edi tor on his father's newspaper. "Inwardly I was a poet," said the eminent novelist In reviewing his early experiences, "with no wish to be any. thing else, unless m a moment of care less affluence I might so far forget myself as to be a novelist." . When 23 years old he traveled t Message To Navy Is Told Washington, May 11. President Wilson's hitherto unpublished war in structions to the officers' of the At lantic fleet, given in person on the quarterdeck of the flagship Penn sylvania on August 11, 1917, and bid ding them "throVr tradition- to the wind," strike the word "prudent from fheir vocabularies and do the thing that is audacious to the utmost point of risk and daring," were made pub lic here today by Secretary Danieis. In laying the text of his remarks before the senate and naval Investi gating committee, Secretary Daniels said they showed the "bold and vig orous" policy the president had out lined for the navy. "Do not stop to think what is pru dent for a moment," said the presi dent "Tou will win by the audaclty of method when you cannot win by circumspection and prudence. "I think that there are willing ears to hear this in .the American navy and the Aemrican army because that is the kind of folks we are. No War for Amateurs "There will have to come a new tradition Into a service which does hot do new and audacious and suc cessful things." The president also expressed his dissatisfaction with progress being made toward crushing the subma rine campaign. ' The British admiralty had hiet Am erican suggestions with what amount ed to statements ;that "it never had been done," the- president said, Jd ing "And I felt like saying 'well, noth ing wits ever done so systematically as nothing is being done now." " In opening his address to the of ficers, Mr. Wilson said: "Admiral Mayo and gentlemen: I have not come here with malice pre pense to make a speech, but I have come here to have a look at you and to say some things that perhaps may be intimately said and, even though the company is large, said In confi dence. "This is an unprecedented war, and, therefore, It Is a war in one sense for amateurs.

Boston to make the acquaintance of Longfellow, Hawthorne, Emerson, Holmes and Lowell. Though a boy among masters, he became their Inti mate, learning their literary traditions and preserving many of them through out his long life. At the age of 24 he was appointed by President Lincoln as United States consul at Venice. He combined his consular duties with literary work, and produced his celebrated book, "Vent, tian Life." - Four years later ,tn 1865, he came to New York with his wife, who was Elinor G. Mead, of Vermont, and whom he had married in Paris in 1862. For two years he wrote editorials for the New York Nation, the Times and the Tribune and then moved to Boston where as assistant editor he began his association with the Atlantic Monthly, succeding James Russell Lowell as editor In 1872.

At-the end of almost every alley downtown today small piles of refuse, tin eans, old papers, delapldated boxes and broken bottles and jugs appeared. Unsightly, to be sure, but the piles mean more than their dirty appear ance might convey they are evidence of a most commendable civla pride on the part of citizens that bids fair to wm the commendation of any one who Visits trie city. The city street department was busy during the day, and Monday, hauling off the piles of trash and refuse. Hundreds of citizens are avail ing themselves of the opportunity of having the trash hauled away, and impelled with a keen desire to clean up their premises were laboring beav er like gleaning every bit of refuse and junk In sight. Due ' to the fact that street Im provements have started in the city, Street Commissioner Low this .morn ing said that his department would be unable to assist in the clean up program longer than the days-stlpu lated, which end Wednesday. But I . don't like to see anybody stop on that account," he declared.

A bitter con test over the adoption of the party platform. was promised today when the national convention of the socialist party was reconvened... The Illinois delegation which yesterday character ized the tentative platform presented by Morris Hillquit .as too moderate, announced its intention of submitting a substitute platform, which would be similar to the radicul program of the socialists in Germany, Russia, Italy and France. William F, Kruse of Chicago declar ed that the substitute plaform would do away with "useless words and phrases." He said the Hillquit docu ment would put the socialist party In the light of trying "to become too re spectable' 'and that it might Just as well bo the platform of the democratic or republican party.
