MRS. SCOTT'S JREPORT
Hakes Vigorous Eeply to Charge of
Deot Urged Against Her
"With the progress of the annual eon
grtte of the Daughters of the American
Revolution, it becomes evident that the
- hie body of women is divided into two
opposing camps or factions, one of
which, through its representatlt es, takes
the opportunity whenever such offers It
self tr -voice It opposition to the pro-
- posed measures ot the other.
This evidence of Tarty feeling does not.
however, signify that the Daughters are
divided on the main underlying prin
ciples upon which their organization is
founded. On these they thoroughly
agree, but they disagree at times on the
measures proposed to carry out the true
mission ot the society, and they thor
oughly disagree at present as to the
officers who should be Intrusted with the
leadership of the national organization.
Clashes Are Frequent.
This wholesome difference of opinion
cropped up frequently yesterday at both
morning and afternoon sessions and was
carried Into the various meetings of
the State delegations, which met yes
terday for the election or officers and
the discussion and Indorsement or can
didates for 'the election of ten vice presi
dents general and two honorary, vice
-presidents general, which takes place
this morning. The chances are that the
two opposing parties. Known as the ad
ministration party, headed by Mrs.
Matthew T. Scott, and the conservative
wing, of which Mrs. William Cummlngs
Story is the avowed leader, will con
tinue to clash for an Indefinite period.
Mrs. Matthew T. Scott, as chairman
of the Memorial Continental Hall com
mittee. In her report yesterday after
noon emphasized the words when she
said: 'It Is very far from being a dis
grace being in debt," referring to Mrs.
Fairbanks' statement on Monday after
noon in which she spoke ot the burden
of debt which the organization carried
on Its hall.
Mrs. Scott tellingly declared thai
every Important business, concern an
nation Is in debt, and concluded bv
sailng that every Daughter Is part se
curity for the debts contracted by the
national society and that there could
he no better security. She paid tribute
to Mrs. Donald McLean, an honorary
president general of the society, for
her far-sightedness In connection with
the financial arrangements. Mrs. Scott
said that the society was 1170,000 In
debt and that Its home was worth
SSOO.OOO, and that, therefore, the
Daughters were $300,000 better off
financially than they were only a few
years ago, whec they occupied rented
Harrison Memorial Tablet.
Great difference of opinion arose as to
the most appropriate place where a
memorial tablet In honor of the founder
. and first president genera of the Daugh
ters. Mrs. Caroline Scott Harrison,
should, be placed. Mrs. Scott said that
fin nad already been contributed by
members, while JCO had been pledged. A
motion to place It In the Indiana room
was vigorously opposed by Miss Janet
Richards, of Washington, who made an
amendment that the tablet b placed In
Ihe auditorium on the ground that Mrs.
Harrison was a national president and
belonged to the whole organization, and
not exclusively to the Indiana society.
Mrs. Mary Lockwood informed the mem
bers that the laws of the organization
prohibited the placing of tablets In the
auditorium. Miss Richards withdrew her
amendment and moved that the. table be
placed in the room ot the president gen
eral, and wjien she was told that this
was also the Indiana room she withdrew
her -motion. It was finally decided to
Place it in the president general s room.
Mrs. Scott appointed a committee
consisting of all State regents, with the
State regent of Indiana as chairman, to
decide on the form this memorial Is to
take a portrait, a bust, or a scholar-
Report on Relics.
Miss Anna Caroline Bennlng; chair
man of the committee ot Revolutionary

various relics which were presented to

In reading her report as chairman of
the national board of management yes
terday morning. Mrs. Scott did not mince
words In charging her political opponents
in the D- A- B- with methods calculated
to undermine the standing of the organi
zation. Upon her suggestion to settle the ques
tion of the Chalkley papers for once and
all. it was agreed to attend to this mat
ter to-morrow afternoon. Another sur
crlse prepared by Mrs. Scott was the
.statement made by close friends that
Mrs Scott will keep hands off in toe
fight for the office of president general,
being due to the fact. It Is slated, that
a number of friends of Mrs. Scott have
entered the field for the honor.
The Titanic Resolutions.
Almost the first resolution passed yes
terday morning was granting Mrs. Scott
authority to appoint a commUtee to draft
resolutions of sympathy and grief upon
the sinking of the Titanic. The com
mittee consists ot Mrs; Thomas K. Noble
and Miss Janet Richards, ot the District
of Columbia, and Mrs. Morgan Smith,
of Alabama, and Mrs. George Lawrence,
of Illinois PreWqus to this action. Mrs.
William Cummlngs Story, of New York,
requested the privilege to offer a resolu
tion of sympathy, but Mrs. Scott replied
decisively that she herself Intended to
attend to that matter.
In her report Mrs. Scott said that the
question of the Chalkley manuscripts has
wasted much valuable time of the board
and she hoped that the report by a com
petent expert historian and geneaologlst
would bring about final action- She sug
gested the appointment of a national
committee on historical research and
asked the Indorsement of the appoint
ment by her of a national committee to
be known as the commltee on "Interna
tional peace arbitration."
A system of efficiency has been in
stalled at the national headquarters of
the society according to Mrs. Scott, who
stated that the hoard had given the au
thority requested by the Chicago chapter
to Incorporate when necessary for the
purpose of building a million dollar hotel
