ex-President stood In the nomination
would get Into the scramble If he felt
like It. So as not to make It embarrass

Cabinet, the colonel told him he would
not expect his active support should he
decide to go after the nomination.
'You must stay noncommittal," was In
effect what Roosevelt told Stimson. "You

"From, now on all women who break
the laws will be treated the same as
every one else who commits a crime."
This means that the women are liable
to punishment under the act defining
conspiracy to break a law, which Is a
felony; the malicious damage to property
act, and the act prohibiting tumultuous
assembling or rioting. All these offenses
are punishable by penal servitude. Those
fighters for the cause who did not ac

President Taft and Speaker
Champ Clark See End
of All Disputes.
Fassage of Workman's Compensa
tion Sill Predicted Mrs. J. H.
Hammond Makes Report.
A Jovial truce was declared between
capital and labor and the sordid troubles
of a weary world were wafted away at
the twelfth annual banquet of the Na
tional Civic Federatlor, held at the New
WWard last evening.
The beaming smile of President Taft
and the equally beaming smile of Champ
Clark were chief aids In promoting the
spirit of the night. There was naught
to disturb the serenity of the diners, 600
strong, who packed the banquet hall
from one end to the other. .
Out of the ocean of words which bore
the speeches on Its tide no trenchant note
was heard, no ringing slogan emerged;
the keynote of them all was the olive
branch, and nothing but the olive branch.
Amicable settlement of all disputes be
tween warring Industrial forces, arbi
tration, a better spirit, and a, better un
derstanding were urgently indorsed by
Basla of Organization.
"What I believe to be the basis of this
organization." said President Taft. "is
that most of the controversies that trou
ble men and trouble the human species
can be settled If the contestants are
made to understand each what the other
means and claims.
"I come here to give you a welcome.
