Several new suffragette outrages

Washington, July 19. Postmaster
General Burleson has declined to re
scind his order substituting a vignette
of Thomas Jefferson for that of William
McKlnley on postal cards.
master-General made known his atti
tude in a letter to Senator Burton of
Ohio. The matter was brought to Mr.
Burleson's attention by Senator Burton,
who received a protest from tho Mc
Klnley Club of Canton, Ohio, against
this substitution of Jefferson's portrait
for McKlnley't). In his reply-Mr. Bur
"In answer to your letter of the 15th
H Inst. I have to say that the change in
the vignette forming the stamp on one
of the postal cards was authorized in
pursuance of a long established cus
tom of altering the designs of stamps
from time to time for the purpose of
affortJlng a variety which it has been
found the public desires. It became nec-
essary to prepare a new supply of
printing plates for postal cards, which
created a favorable opportunity to makn
changes In the designs.
"Inasmuch as the principles ad
vocated by Jefferson have been recently
Indorsed by the American people It
seemed appropriate to nlace the vl-
Ignette of the author of the Declaration
of Independence on the new card. It
goes without saying that this action
was taken without any purpose of re
flecting upon the honored memory of
the lamented McKlnley."

afternoon to restoro Capt. Templln M.

tho first action taken in Capt. Potts's
case and indicates the nature of the
endeavor which Capt. Potts will make
to bo reinstated.
The cae attracted nttentlon follow
ing tho selection of Capt. Potts for
retirement by the "plucking board."
This action by the board was possible
because Secretary Daniels deprived
Capt. Potts of his promotion. On March
2C, after passing his examination for
promotion to be a Rear Admiral, Capt.
Potts was Informed that he had not
had sufficient sea service to warrant
promotion. Capt. Potts was ordered
to sea. It was announced that after he
had served a time at sea he would be
promoted, his new rank to date from
March 26, 1913. By the defermcnt'of
his promotion, however, Capt. Potts fell

The burglar had been In tho knitting

Saturday afternoons In summer they are

afternoon showed Schoenherr missing,
Tho other men, somewhat excited by
tho knowledge of his attempt to escape,
were marched Into their cells to eat their
supper. Then all the guards were sum
moned for the man hunt that Is dis
tinctive of Sing Sing.
After the whistle had been blown the
neighboring towns were notified by tele
phone of an escape and the police In
each were set hunting. Warden Clancy
directed a thorough search of the tor

To insert these clauses Identical with
those nf the Piatt amendment in regard
to Cuba wns Mr. Bryan's proposal upon
which be sought tn-dny tin ndvice and
ennsent of members nf the Senate com
mittee. Mr. Bryan Informed the Sena
tors tliat hv spoke lor the President,
who has given his whole hearted and
enthusiastic support to tho plan.
Furthermore, the Government of Nica
ragua not only Is agreeable tn the pro
posal but is In fact the originator nf it.
It was nt the request nf special com
missioners from Nicaragua that .Mr.
Bryan took the proposal under con
sideration and laid It before the Pi evi
dent for his approval. This approval,
tt Is understood, hus been given with
out the slightest reservation by Presi
To-dny's step Is regarded as the key
note of the Wilson Administration's
policy toward the weaker Lathi Ameri
can Stutes. It seems tn Inillcu'o
clearly that President Wilson and
Secretary Bryan have reached the con
clusion long maintained by the Tuft
Administration that the helping hand
of tho United Stales must be eMended
tn the Centrul American republics in
the hour of their need.
The lllffeiv.tce between the policies ot
the two administrations Is largely ou
of method. The Tuft Administration

Nicaragua, which provided for tho
