HP Speaker Champ Clark Makes
Plea for Those Absent on

WASHINGTON', Jan. M. Speaker
Champ Clark thinks It unfair that phy
B tflcJan. (l.-ummcrs and others -whose
H business calls them away from their resl
H rtcnccH at uncertain dates should ho dis
H, 'ranchinod because they arc not at
Hl home to register and to voto on dates
H fixed by law.
Hj The speaker received the support of
Hf ths traveling1 men's association last
spring nnd now he Is out In support of
i a chango In the lnw hy the several states
H allowing the right of vote under affl
l davit by mall. A bill conferring this
B right to vote for congressman Is now be

Hi mcnt on the subjoct:
j Last fall, while campaigning in
H Iowa, I ran into a. crowd of drum-
H mcrs, and of course they were all
M discussing politics, whooping it up
j for Wilson, Taft and Roosevelt. Scv-
Hj ':al wore lamenting the fact that
H1 hey would be compelled to lose their
H votes by reason of absence from
H; home on election day and wanted to
H know why congress docs not pass a
j law enabling drummers to vote wher-
m ever they happen to be. I explained
i 'o them that congress had no power
i to fix qualifications for suffrage, but
B that conversation set me to thlnk-
Hl Ing on the subject, and the light voto
H oast In November caused mo to think
H some more.
H, Besides the hundreds of thousands
1 of drummers, there arc other thou-
1 sands of voters necessarily absent
1 from home on husinens on election
H day students, preachors, doctors,
1 railroad men, etc.
I 'Mont assuredly it is desirable for
the public weal that all good citi
zens should vote. In vlow of the
facts, my suggestion Is that state
leglslaturcfi should pass law3 enabling
those necessarily absent from home
on election day to vote. It could be
easily- arranged and safeguarded by
putvhllng that regulation ballots be
furnished such persons to bo marked
ilgned, sworn to and returned to the
proper election officers, etc
Kansas now has such a lnw. While
the legislatures arc at it they would
do well to change the election day
from Tuosday to Monday, so that the
iliinnmcrs who spend Sunday ut home
would not lose both .the Mondays and
Tuesdays in order to vote. I most"
modestly submit my little reform to

WASHINGTON. Jan. 26. The United

Dr. Joseph A. Holmes, director of the
I'nltcd States bureau of mines, ex
pressed the fear today that "the earn
ings thernbolvcs may add to the risks
and dangers in mines where gases gen
erate In dangerous quantities." Inves

weather conditions, especially atmospher

rometer, upon the amount of gas In coal

"As to the value of warnings," Dr.
Holmes declared, "that will depend upon
the way in which they are used. Tf. as
Is hopd. they -serve to make miners

Elizabeth B. Grannis Talks
of Life of President
! , elect.
AT a time when the whole nation
is. looking forward with more or
less speculation to the incoming
Democratic administration, a few
sidelights Into the early life and
training of the man who is to head that
administration form an interesting pic
ture. Through all the earlv life of Wood
row Wilson and until he occupied a chair
in Princeton, the dominating" Influence
that seemed to decide or at least affect
his even' move, was his father, the Rev.
Joseph TL Wilson, D. D., LL. T.,. profes
sor of theology In Clarkesvlllo university
The Rev. Mr. Wileon was of the old
Echool of southern gentlemen and the
scheme of things as considered bv that
school did not necessarily Include "eman
cipated" females. Yet, in the course of i
his work as a doctor of divinity and a !
moderator of the Presbyterian assembly,
he became closely aseoclated with and
found a warm friend in Elizabeth B.
Grannis. She had fought he own battles
for years and was. when the two first
became acquainted, editor of the Church
Union and a. staunch defender of tho Idea
that the two sexes, should enjoy abso
lute equality of rights.
E. B. Grannis, as she signed her name,
was founder of the National Christian
league for Promotion of Purity and has
been its president for the past twenty
three years. As a friend of the Rev.
Mr. Wilson, she could not help watching
with admiration the constant and closely
confiding love that existed between him
and his son. who is now the president
elect. She looks with complacency upon
tho coming administration.
The father and son were inseparable.
Even Wbodrow's mother, who died be
fore he was called to Princeton, did not
seem to understand him, as did his fa
ther Woodrow was like his mother and
like her he looked upon his father as
the most wondorful and tho boot, of men.
The Rev. Mr. Wilson did not have the
oven temper, quiet dignity and primness
of manner that have characterized the
president-elect. lie was emotional In
his enthusiasms and affections. i
Mrs. Grannis'c Tribute. !
Mrs. Grannis. speaking of tho traits of
Governor Wilson, Kald: i
From the tlmo he was big enough
to trot alone, he was at his fa
ther's heels, morning, noon and night.
In tho old days at Staunton, Ta..
later at Augusta, Ga and the other
southern homes of the Wilsons.
Woodrov was the only member of
the family never barred from tho
doctor's study. Never one of his
baby questions went unanswered.
Never a chance was missed to plant
some bit of Information, no matter
what trains of thought were wrecked
in his fathor'3 mind 'by the inter
ruption. Woodrow Wilson inherits Just as
much of his strong mentality from
nls gentle English mother as he docs
, from tho WUboti side of the family.
His mother represented tho training
which is the British ideal of wife
and motherhood. She wa the sort
of wife who studies every hour of
the day how to add to- her husband's
comfort and efficiency. She antici
pated his every wish, obtruding her
own perzonallty as little ae possible.
Ucr brother waa Ir. Jamc6 Wood
row, president of Columbia college
at Columbia, S. C. and hsr educa
tion, like his. wji of the highest.
It ifc surely from Woodrow's mother
qulle as much na from his father
that he Inherits hi calm inHtlnct for
a?8lmllating tangled questions nnd
parsing wisely on them after mature
Forecast of Success.
I know his heredity, hla education
and his environment from babyhood,
and lo will muko J.he strongest, most
Judleloufl president since Lincoln.
Ono of the greatest blcseings that
hns yet descended upon the woman
quHt!on is the fact that Woodrow
Wilson never had a son. With threo
daughters whom he devotedly love,
ho cannot (with his logical mind) fall
to study the problem of woman's full
freedom and equality with man In
church and r.tatc. Jle must neces-aarlh-
ten the Injustice of prnsent
conditions, for when injustice Is put
upon hlu own. a man &eoa It more
clearly than when It Is put upon his
neighbor's own. however much he has
bpon taught to love his neighbor as
! The mm of the nsuion may well re
joice In thoir now president, and the
women of the whol land nbould clve
thanks, not only for Woodrqw Wll
jop but also for the fact that Mf,

was spent at the homo of hln sistdr.
Annie, who became Mrs. George Howe.
The Howe home was In Columbia, S. C,
and with that city and home are asso

youth. When his sister became a widow

the education of her children, and her
younger son. George Howe, lived with
him in Princeton during his entire col
When he lived in Columbia, where hlo
father taught in tho Columbia Presby
terian Theological seminary from 1870 to
1S74, Woodrow was generally known as
"Tommy," and many there still remem

had boen his Sunday school teacher said,
when Khe heard of his nomination;
"If I'd only known Tommy Wilson waa
going to be president, I'd have noticed
him more particularly when ho came to

and he was very particular about his

to pull off their hats to ladles and old

had beautiful manner? it's more than
