fact that eight years aso both Houses
sat on the proposition with much vigor,
refusing to allow a proceeding that they
alleged would upset their plans andvthelr

decoration of the rotunda would neces

TO ENFORCE MEASURE
AGAINST TURKEY TROT
There was war to pay among the ber-ircants-at-arms
of the House and Senate
and their assistants jesterdaj when it
was learned that an amendment offered
to the bill granting the use of the l'en
slon Building for the inaugural ball had
inflicted upon these gentlemen the task
of enforcing the following regulations as
ro me conduct of dancers at the ball.
The amendment was offered by Rem-e-
ecntatlve Roddenbcry of Georgia, one of
the Southern fire-eaters of the House, who
hates rules almot as Intensely as he ap
pears io aonor modern nance -no titles.
The amendment, which, with the bill.
noes oier until Tuesday, while the In
aucurai committee makes up its mind
as to whether there will be any ball,
reads. In part, as follows:
"The grant of the permit to the com
mittee on the inaugural ceremonies for
the use of the Pens'on Building for the
inaugural nan is expressly upon condi

preentlon of acts of public Indecency

Vnm the Baltimore News,
Is the inaugural ball worth the price?
President-elect Wilson seems to have
grave doubts on the subject, and the
common sense of the country will
heartily echo them. The account seems
to balance about as follows:

We think the great majority of cltl
sens. of ever) political complexion, will
feel that Gov Wilson has taken a
sensible step in suggesting that the In
augural ball be eliminated from the
ceremonies of his Inauguration.
It Is notorious that this feature of the
proceedings has become almost a com
plete adsurdit) . Its omission would tend
to add to the dignity of the whole In
augural ceremon) Except In the Im
agination of the families of new members
of Congress It has no standing except
formal one as a social Incident suit
able to so great an occasion as the In
auguration of a President
The same crowd of local patriots and
tradespeople In Washington want It who
want every possible excuse to extract

good humor, as Inauguration crowds are
apt to be But by omitting it tho President-elect

suggesting the cancellation of the

leave that gentleman and his associates
free to make their own decision without
much danger of otlendmg the President

desire to avoid useless expense Is not to
be doubted, but It is surprising tnat tie
has waited so long to make known his
attitude And his mode of expressing
that attitude is, unfortunate!, such as
to leave it an open question In minds not
disposed to give him the benefit of the
doubt whether he really desires not to
have the ball or merely wishes to place
himself In the position ot an unwining

From the Brocklfn Ei
President-elect Wilson's letter to Mr.
William Corcoran Eustls. chairman of the
Inaugural committee, will seriously dis
turb those good people in Washington
who find an occasion of great pecuniary
profit in the quadrennial ceremonies of
March 4 Mr Wilson does not presume
t direct Mr Eustls to "cut out the
inaugural ball He politelj asks him to
consider the feaslbllit of omitting the
inaugural ball altogether," and adds an
expression of hope that the request will
In no wav embarrass the recipient. The
ccurteous language of the letter does not
disguise the writer's wish and expecta
tion that Mr. Eustls' compliance be
Of course, Mr Eustls will be embar
rassed He Is facing a ery serious
dilemma. To abolish the ball would keep
away from Washington a great many
people who put moner In the pockets of
hotel men and merchants These two
classes are going to put whatever pres
sure they can upon the Inaugural oom
mlttee to maintain the ball In all Its
show and glitter In spite of the new
President's expressed preference for its
abandonment On the other hand; It
would be a very grave affront to the
President to ignore what he actually
calls a suggestion, especially since a
large saving In money to lhe Federal
Treasury would follow Its adoption.
The Inaugural ball Is held In the Pen
sion Building Preparations for It are
costly. Clerks are disturbed when gov
ernment work is suspended to make way
for the men the Inaugural committee
rmplojs to get the building into shape.
Pension Commissioner Warner has fig
ured out that the government loies about
133,000 worth of time on the part
of clerks upon whom idleness Is thus
enforced. That Is a heavy price for the
government to pay In order that any
one who has the $3 price ot a ticket can
help swell the crowd that assembles to
stare at the Prerident and his wife.

Her Voice Seems to Hare Lost but
LittI Quality with
An announcement that Mme. Lillian
Kordlca la going to sing always brings
forth a following devoted, not only to
Mme. Nordlca's voice a voice that seems
gifted with undeflnable charm of peren
nial youth but to a personality that
loses none of Its charm with years. The
audience yesterday afternoon at the Co
lumbia Theater was of these devoted.
The fascination Is no fond Illusion. The
charm is there; and It lies not alone In
the voice, although It still puts many a
younger singer of the schools of to-day
to shame, but It Is the soul of song that
captivates her hearers.
- From the simplest ballad, of Cad-nan or
Debussy to the portrajal of the alter
nating personalities In Schubert's Erl
klng. or the exacting demands of an
op-ra nrla the charm is never falling.

German, French, and Italian languages,

spirit of each Is alwajs happy In her
Yi'sterdayB programme comprised the
plqcant, subtle, merry, saucy French
chanson, of Debussy and Vldal: the Ger
man lleder of Schuman, Wolff, and Jen
sen, fraught with sentiment and mys
ticism. That the sun of Mme Nordlca's
dramatic and operatic greatness has not
set was fully revealed, when. Instead of
Elizabeth's aria from "Tannhauser" she
sang the famous aria from "Madame
ButterflJ." Her Interpretation of Aren
sky's "But Lately in Dance." a song
In a reflective mood of the deepest I
pathos, was an education In dramatic
portrayal. Nev ertheless. her greatest
glory has departed. The da when people
crowtltd to the theater and willingly
stood throughout the performance to i
hear a voice that could not be rivaled
for sher beauty, and to be enchanted
with a pcrsonalltj whose charm Is
lifetime remembrance, has passed
Assisting Mme Nonlica was William
Morse Rummel, a violinist of no common
ability He brings out good, round tones
am) 1b fully adequate to the technical
difficulties of the Scherzo of Dlttersdorf
or the Tarantelle of Sarasate, the latter,
one would think, a device for the display

Mr. Rummel was best In the variations
