Increase of Manufacturing Inter­
est* Changing Sentiment.
Washington, I). C.— Not a little
consternation prevails in the Demo­
cratic camp at Wa*hington because of
the fact that Southern manufacturers
and producers, dissatisfied with the
terms of the Underwood bill, are ap­
pealing to Republican senator* for re­
lief. Thi* I* something that ha* been
done before, but never in the past has
the appeal from the South been a*
strong a* now, due to the fact that the
South is becoming more and more a
manufacturing section.
Aside from the two senators from
Ixiuisiana, none of the Southern Dem­
ocrat* in the senate expect to break
with their party when it come* to vot­
ing on the tariff bill, yet it i* true
that many Southern senator* are pro­
tectionist* at heart, though they do
not so style themselves.
They speak
of advocating "tariff for revenue,”
but their preference is always for a
tariff on the products of their particu­
lar states, and they are not much con­
cerned about getting revenue from the
products of other states or sections.
While no one expects the South to
replace any of it* sitting Democratic
senators with Republicans, there is a
genera) fear among senator* from that
section, and especially among those
whose terms expire in two years, that
they may be replaced by other Demo­
crats who will be less inclined to vote
against local interests.

$40,000,000 Insurance Placed
on Morgan’s Collection.

New York — Although the precise
value of the Morgan art collection at
the Metropolitan Museum wa* not ob­
tainable, it wa* learned that it had
been insured by J. P. Morgan as

that they have obtained about all the

It developes that the late J. P. Mor­
gan never insured his art objects or
seemed to see any necessity for doing
The $20,000,000 thus obtained in in­
surance, however, does not cover the
total insurance on the art collections
left by Mr. Morgan.
An additional
$10,000,000 of insurance has been ob­
tained on the art collection in Mr.
Morgan's private gallery on Thirty­
sixth street.
Another $10,000,000 of insurance
has been obtained by Mr. Morgan a*
trustee on the art collection in his
father’s London house at Princess
Gate. This would bring the total of
insurance so far obtained on the chief

according to present plans.
Martha Washington’* Brings $300;
Mrs. Lincoln’s Complaint $50.
New York—The bitter letters which
Mrs. Lincoln, widow of Abraham Lin­
coln, wrote more than 40 years ago,
when in despair of getting congress to
pass an appropriation for her assist­
ance, were sold at auction Thursday.
Most of the letters went to dealers for
less than $50. A letter in which Mrs.
Lincoln offered to sell a black lace
dress which cost over $2500, brought
The most acrimonius letter of
all, one in which Mrs. Lincoln wrote
that General Grant and his wife treat­
ed her with “utter heartlessness,”
brought $50, the best price of the lot.

Mr*. Wilson After Slums.
Washington, D. C.—Washington’s
slums will be cleaned out, if the in­
fluence and active work of the White
House family count for anything.
Mrs. Wilson made several quiet
trips of inspection through the cap­
ital’s unsightly alleys this week, and
joined other prominent women, includ­
ing the wives of several senators and
representatives, in attending a meet­
ing of the women’s department of the
National Civic Federation.
There a
letter was read from the President
approving the movement for wiping
out disreputable alleys and providing
sanitary homes at lower rentals for
the poor.
H. M. Flagler’s Will Filed.
St. Augustine, Fla.—Henry M. Flag­
ler’s will was filed Thursday and under
it J. R. Parrott is to retain the head
of the Florida East Coast railroad so
long as he may desire. The estate is
estimated to be worth between $60,-
000,000 and $70,000,000, and most of |
it goes to the widow. The son. Harry,
will receive 5000 shares of Standard
Oil company of New Jersey stock. J.
R. Parrott, W. H. Beardsley and
William Keenan, a brother of Mrs.
Flagler, are named trustees under
the will.
Suffrage Bill Is Vetoed.
Madison, Wis.—Governor McGovern
on Thursday vetoed the bill ordering a
referendum in 1914 on the question of
extending the ballot to women in Wis­
consin. The governor objects to the
bill on the ground that, suffrage hav­
ing been defeated by a majority of
■92,000 in Wisconsin last November,

soon would be unwise and would re­

Sheffield, England—An ingeniously

Witnesses Show Danger of Alleged
Plot Against Strikers.
Boston—Another big crowd listened
Thursday to the evidence adduced by
District Attorney Pelletier in support
of the charge that William Wood,
president of the American Woolen
company, and Frederick F. Atteaux,
a dye manufacturer, conspired with
others to “plant” dynamite at Law­
rence to cast suspicion upon the strik­
ing textile operatives.
The danger of the “plant” was il­
lustrated in the testimony of Josef
Assaf, a Syrian painter of Lawrence,
in whose home some of the explosive
was placed. Assaf said that when he
opened the package he thought the
sticks might be some new form of
paint. He tried to burn a stick and
then smelled of the scorched portion.
Later on, he showed the sticks to a
physician, who told him it was dyna­
He intended taking it to the police
station, and hid it for safe keeping in
his bedroom, where it was found later
by the police who arrested him.
Allies Must Sign Treaty.
London—The growing displeasure in
diplomatic circles of the great powers
at the attitude of Greece and Servis
found expression here in what practi­
cally amounts to an ultimatum which
Sir Edward Grey, the British secretary
of foreign affairs delivered to the del­
egates of the belligerents. The com­
munication, which was couched in
strong phrases, without ambiguity,
made it clear that enough time had
been spent in futile discussions of the
peace settlement and that the moment
had arrived for signing the treaty.
T. R. “Extremely Temperate.
Marquette, Mich.—Men who have
been associated with Colonel Roose­
velt in public and private life, who
met him on the Nile when he returned
from his African hunting trip, and
newspaper men who accompanied him
on his various political campaigns,
testified Thursday in Colonel Theodore
Roosevelt’s libel suit against George
Newett, a newspaper owner of Ish­
peming, Mich., that the ex-president
not only was not a drunkard, but that
he wa* notably and extremely temper­
