THE WASHINGTON HERAED: FRIDAY. MARCH. 8. 1912.
ABE MABTTN SAYS:
Condemnations Cause Concern, and
Market Is Affected to a Con
"Washington ovster dealers are greatly
perturbed over the recent condemnation!
of bivalves by Inspectors of the "Bureau
of Chemistry, Department of Agriculture.
because of the presence of germs said
to be noxious. The condemnations have
affected the local oyster market to a con
It Is thousht that the oysters became
Infected with the noxious germs while on
the river bed. probably from sewage.
The question has arisen as to whether
The supposed contamination could have
resulted from the sewage disposal of the
District. There la a decided difference of
opinion on this question. District Health
Officer Woodward was questioned last
night on the subject, but he refused to
"venture an opinion.
"The best way to settle the matter."
said Dr. Woodward, "Is to Investigate
conditions along the Potomac and to
analyze the water and oysters. It is
a simple proposition and would solve
the problem Immediately."
tnzlnM for 1'rolie.
Oystermen are convinced that the bi
valves were Infected while In the wa
ter and not after being dredged. The
oysters which were condemned on
Monday were brought direct to the
city from the beds near Colonial Beach.
"Va Oystermen of Virginia and Mary
land are Impatient to have an Investi
gation of the matter so that the cause
of Infection may be removed.
Officials of the Bureau of Chemistry
will commence a general Investigation
of the ojster beds of lie Potomac
within a few days. Chemists will be
sent to the various dredging points, es
pecially those near Colonial Beach
and the mouth of Wicomico Creek, for
the irpoe of making tests.

Acting on a peremptory order from the
President. Attorney General Wlckersham
vesterday began active preparations for
a prosecution, under the Sh'rman law,
of the harvester trust, which Mr Taft's
managers accuse of financing the candl
dacy of Theodore Roosevelt.
This announcement, which followed
with 'i tentv-four hours the admin
Istratlon's first official ki .mlcdge that
George W. Perkins, of the harvester
trust, was actively co-operating with
Roosevelt, Indicates plainly the Presi
dent's determination to fie lit. and the
kind of a tight ne Intends to make.
Although Mr Wlckersham. as long ago
as last September, notified Mr Taft of his
readiness to move against the harvester
trust, the President did not appear will
ing that l.e should do so on the evidence
then on hand Instead of ordering Wlck
ersham to proceed. Mr. Taft sent for
Herbert Knox Smith. Commissioner of
Corporations, and Instructed him to pre
pare a special report on the trust.
Before M Smith got this work fairly
under way he nras taken away from It to
make a similar report on the steel trust.
Meanwhile, the prosecution languished
for want of an order from Mr. Taft to
awake It to life.
At the Department of Justice It Is be
lieved Mr Perkins stands for more than
the harvester trust. It is asserted that
Perkins, despite his declaration of re
tirement. Is still hand In glove with the
Morgan Interests, and that his holdings
in many great Industrial and financial
corporations give him vast authority and
Influence and consequent power.
If suit can be Instituted speedily it will
be possible to call Perkins to the stand
and to question him ai to whether he as
a director of the liarv ester companv has
contributed anything to the Roosevelt
fund. If the case cannot be brought to
trial before June. It Is believed that the
effect of the prosecution will be none the
less disastrous to the trust, to Perkins
through the trust, and to Roosevelt
Senator Dixon said jesterday that In
a few days he would answer fully the
charge that Roosevelt Is receiving money
from the harvester trust Senator Dixon
has already charged that the harvester
trust supplied to the Taft headquarters.

luTTering; Tou can get rid of It by a
4!mple. safe, inexpensive, home trcat
lent discovered by Dr. Blosser, who. for
ever thlrty-sli jeans, has been treating
His treatment is unlike any other. It is
sot a spray, douche, salve, cream, or In
haler, but Is a more direct and thorough
Ireatment than any of these. It cleans
cut the head, nose, throat, and lungs so
that j,ou can again breathe freely and
sleep without that stopped-up Teellrg tnat
all catarrh sufferers have. It heals the
diseased mucous membranes and arrests
the foul discharge, so that you will not
be constantly blowing your nose and
spitting, and at the same time It does
not poison the system and ruin the stom
cch, as Internal medicines do.
If you want to test this treatment with

FEAR OF ANOTHER
rekln. March 7. As a result of a con
ference held this afternoon, the foreign
ministers to-night dispatched a sharp
protest to President-elect Yuan Shlli Kal
against the presence of Chinese troops
within the seven-mile limit of the for
eign concessions at Tientsin. This action
was regarded as Imperative It the for
eigners and their Interests arc to be pro
tected from the mutinous troops.
So far no anti-foreign feeling has 'been
manifested, but the ministers realize thit
the first attack on a foreigner would
start a wave of hostile feeling that
would likely result In another Boxer up
rising. The foreign ministers look to Ja
pan for protection In the event of a
crisis, as that country could easily rush
thousands of troops to the Llaotung pen
insula and keep war ships ready to
transport the forces to Chlng Wang Tao.
At present there are only 3,000 foreign
troops In rekln and about the came
number in Tientsin.
The mutineers- are looting Northern
China without Interference. The ranks
of the rebels have reached suchApropor
tions that there Is no force in China ade

London, March 7. Apparently un
abashed by Imprisonment and sentences
providing hard labor, the suffragettes re
sumed their window smashing to-day.
Armed .with hammers, a large crowd of
the militant batters for the cause de
scended upon the shops In the vicinity
of Buckingham Palace and smashed fif
teen large plate-glass windows, and In
addition three Urge windows at Oxford
Circus. Police reserves were called, and
twentv-flve of the women were arrested
and locked up In Old Bailey.
To-days Issue o the Votes for "Women
contained several blank pages, occasioned
by the refusal of the printers to set in
print the Inflammatory articles written
by the suffragette leaders.
