The ban has bettn placed on those

Is not only damaging to the sight but to
the brain as well."
He attributes much of the fever and
even meningitis to the effect of white

OLIVE BRANCH OR
BRICK FOR KELLEf
Costello Committee Offen Chairman
of Old Democratic Central Com
CAN HAVE PEACE OB '
WAR, AS HE MAY ELECT
Meeting at Building Trades' Hall
Makes More Threats Court
The olive branch will be extended to
J. Fred Kelley, chairman of the old
Central Democratic Committee, by the
body commonly known as the Costello
committee, and If he refuses to accept
It with one hand and turn over with
the other the records and funds which
he now holds, legal proceedings will be
Instituted as a final resort
This programme was decided upon last
night by the Costello committee, of
which Robert E. Mattlngly Is chairman,
at a meeting In Building Trades Hall.
Resolutions were Introduced by Daniel
F. Flnucane and unanimously adopted
authorizing the officers of the commit
tee to assume charge of the matter and
resort to action In the courts If Mr.
Kelley could not be brought to terms by
The resolutions are as follows:
"Be it resolved by the present Demo
cratic Central Committee. That the chair
man, secretary, and treasurer of this
body, representing the Democratic Cen
tral Committee. Immediately take such
steps as may be deemed necessary on
behalf of this committee to begin pro
ceedings of a legal nature, civil or other
wise, to determine the title of this ,body
to all such funds, documents, Ac and
to employ counsel for that purpose It
Mr. Kelley and the other officers or the
old central committee were bitterly de
nounced In spirited words. Toward the
end of the meeting, however, the rancor
gradually disappeared, and the members
began talking about the olive brancn
and harmony. Then those who had pro
nounced Imprecations against Kelley and
his followers arose to say that tney ear
nestly hoped their words had not been
misinterpreted, that they, too, were In
favor of the olive branch, and that after
all they thought Mr. Kelley was a "good
old harmless wheel horse of Democracy,"
and would soon come to terms.
Capt Miller denounced Mr. Kelley
often recall." he said, "the night
of the primaries last May with that mob
of irate Democrats In Mr. Kelley's little
otlice, the lights out, the hour growing
late, and the chairman himself forced
to the sill of the open window, while
several talked of fighting and curses
were filling the sir. And I often think
that the best thing that could have hap
pened that night would have been to have
thrown Mr. Kelley all the way out."
Tho proposed ratification meeting was
discussed but no definite action was taken
in the matter. Mr. Colpoys said that no
replies had been received from Gov. Wil
son and Gov. Marshall with respect to
the proposition. The plan Is to hold a
big mass meeting In Convention Hall In
August with the Democratic Presidential
and Vice Presidential candidates as the
speakers and guests ot honor. If August
Is too early to suit the convenience of the
tvo big guns of Democracy, the date
nil! be changed to beptember.
Costello Make Explanation.
Prof. Thomas E. Will spoke on popular
government In the District at the meet
ing last night. He said that the lack of
suffrage here Is a national disgrace.
John F. Costello. the National Com
mitteeman, announced that he wanted It
distinctly understood that he has noth
ing whatever to do with the squabble
between the "Costello" committee and
Mr. Kelley still holds on with a firm
grip to the committee's possessions. He
Is sphynx-llke and noncommittal, but
determined down in his heart that
courts and National Committee resolu
tions shall not force him to yield up the
property to a tody which he considers
undeserving. He has but one answer
to all questions:

Coatlnneil from Face One
pointed at the Capitol yesterday. It was
charged that Mr. Burleson repeatedly vio
lated the rules of parliamentary pro
cedure in his rulings. The steam roller
was reversed and applied to Its natural
engineers, and they were not pleased
with the experience. Mr. Burleson. It
was charged. Ignored the demand for a
division on the vote to adjourn the meet
ing, although there were enough votes
to defeat the motion.
Party Split Poanible.
That the Wednesday mucus may re
sult In a serious split In the hitherto
united House majority was apparent
Many members took the position that
the matter resolved Itself Into a decision
between misguided party loyalty and
patriotism, and that they would be gov
erned by the latter Influence rather than
by the former In any future action In
the primaries. Others, taking Into con
sideration tho Democratic platform,
which declared for "an adequate navy"
and one which will uphold the dignity
and prestige of the United States, de
clare that even party loyalty directs
them to disregard the caucus pledge.
The questionable motives of many who
voted against further battleship construc
tion this year offer another reason for
disregarding the caucus pledge. That
arge number of mmbe snoiild mates
their ipo'oval of battleship construction
contingent ui on their ability to reap per
sonal benefits from a "pork barrel" pub
lic buildings bill Is looked upon by many
as sufficient justification for breaking
through party ties In this Instance. That
Representative Underwood, wnoeo lead
ership has been the principal factor In
the excellent record the Democratic House
has made, sides against the no-battleship
programme la considered further Justi
fication for an Independent stand in the
controversy by many who have been
Mr. Underwood's strongest supporters or.
the side of party regularity In the House.
May Mean Tito Milp.
In view of the lndepcndant attitude
which a large number ot Democrats as
sumed yesterday, it Is not believed the
possibility of re-enacting the 1J11-12 naval
bill, and thus providing for two battle
ships, will materialize, though It Is pos
