HALF DEAD AHD A MENACE.
Mrs. Henderson Has Tree on Six

Mrs John B. Henderson, wife of the
former Senator from Missouri, and owner
of "Henderson castle." tho beautiful es
tate at Sixteenth Street and Florida
Avenue, stood in a driving rain Tues
day night with the laborers to cut down
a half-dead rvcamorc tree; which was
a menace to passersby.
Some time ago she appealed to the
District government to chop down tho
tree, which is on a public street. The
pigeonholed the Veqviest. Tuesday night
Mrs. Henderson- got tired of dlay, hired
a couple of laborers and armed with an
umbrella and a lantern, had the tree cut
Three policemen who saw what was
about to happen entered strenuous pro

aside and went ahead. City regulations
provide a fine for removal or trees with

she didn't care what happened now that

Vederal Architects Back In Their

according to RepresentaUvo Cllne of
Indians, is the condition facing Congress
to-day in Its programme for a "pork
barrel' bin to appropriate S5,O0O,O0O for
more pablic buildings. Congestion of
work In tho supervising architect's of.

"Jt Is physically imposslble( for the
architect's office to construct the new
buildings authorized," said Mr. Cllne.
"Reorganlratlon of the entire office is

Gnests of Honor.'
The guests of honor. In addition to
the President, were Prof. Russell it.
Chittenden, director of the Sheffield
Scientific School, tho sdentlflo depart
ment of Yale University, who came to
Washington to bring the latest message
of the local graduates from their alma
mater, and Justice Pitney, of the United
States Supreme Court, a Princeton grad
uate. It had been expected that Beek
man Wlnthron. Assistant Secretary of
the Navy, would be present to represent
Tales other traditional rival. Harvard,
but Mr. Wlnthrop was at the last mo
ment prevented from attending the din
ner. At the speakers' table Ware also A. A.
Adee, Second Aaalatant Secretary of
State, and Yung Kwal, secretary of the
Chinese Legation, a graduate of Yale In
ISO. The'fnuln body of the guests were
seated lit small tables. A stringed or
chestra played during the dinner. Liter
the whole company Joined in singing
"Boola." "Old Ell," "Down the Field,
and the songs of a decade and more
ago. It was a typical college gathering.
Prof. Chltenden, In his address, dwelt
particularly upon the great part which
the study of the sciences, both applied
and pure, was playing In the collego
and university of to-day. He declared
that Yale, through the establishment )f
many splendid new laboratories and tho
pportunltles which were being given for
a scientific education, was making a
foremost place. The educated man to
day, he said, must know something about
everything, and everything about one
thing, and the study of the sciences had
become recognized as essential. Yale,
he said, had been the first of the big
Institutions of learning to realize the
value of including the sciences in its
Developments In Recent Years,
Prof. Chittenden pointed out that the
great scientific development of to-day Is
In reality the product of recent vears.
For two thousand years, from the dajs
oi maroan until the dais of th
French revolution, he said, the world
stood still as regards science. Ulysses
railed the seas with much the same kind
of vessels and with Just as much safety
as did John Paul Jones. It was not until
the new school of science, with the de
velopment of tho steam engine, that ad
vances were begun. He spoke of the
huge part which is plavcd in tho world
to-day by the rallwavs. the electric
cables, automobiles, nnd all the other
modern Inventions. He referred parti
cularly to the advanco In science made
along tho line of the sanitation. The
way in which the United btates had
cleaned up the Isthmus of Panama and
made it as healthful a placo in which
to live as this counto. had opened the
eyt of the civilized world.
Justice Pitney, In his address, told the
Yale men how much gratified he waw to
be with them, particularly when they
were raying farewell to the great Yale
president. He carried his audience back
to tbe dava when he was a student at
Princeton, when Walter Camp was doing
things on the football field and was a
terror to the Orange and Black. He spoke
of an old friend, the late Henry Hoyt. at
one time Solicitor General, of the class
of '", at Yale, and told how he had
heard Mr. Hovt speak with great af
fection of his friend, "old Bill Taft."
.SLUM glY SLUG MY..
"I have never heard that name men
tioned since, except In terms of resnect.
admiration, and affection," said Justice
Pitney. "I congratulate Talc upon hav
ing given to the country this wise,
sagacious, and patriotic man I con
gratulate you, as I have congratulated
him, that ho Is going back to vour alma
mater, upon retiring from public life,
on the bench, a governor of a great
dependency, as head of a department
of the government, and as Chief Exec
utive of the land. He goes back to his
alma mater to lay his laurel on her
lap. to enjoy the ripe jears of his life
beneath her elms, and to add new lus
ter to the old college, of which vou are
I was originally discovered bv- a
Yale man." said Justice Pitney, amid a
general laugh, referring to his appoint
ment to tho Supreme Court by Presi
Recollections of Wilson.
Mr. Pitney turned his attention to the
next President. Woodrow Wilson, whose
classmate he was at Princeton. He said
that they had had the laborious task of
eating nt the- same table.
"I knew Woodrow Wilson as a quiet,
cordial, studious, literary man, a good
friend and a wholesome, useful college
man, without any noticeable exaltation
in the process of development," said Mr.
Pitney. "I bespeak for him a cordial
welcome when he comes to Washington.
If I were asked why Princeton has not
had a President before, I might be in
clined to refer to the recent contest be
tween Yale and Harvard to send a fa
vorite son to the White House, and
might suggest that It was eminently fit
ting that Princeton should havo inter
vened. "I hopo that tho new incumbent of
this high office will havo all the success
which he deserves, and that when he
retires from orace he will be accorded
the high praise which Is being given
to President Taft. that ho may then re
turn to his alma mater also, rich In
honor, having preserved the peaco and
having dono what In him lay to raise
high tho standards of tho country. Then
shall I bo In every way well satisfied."
Brief speeches were made by Georsre
X. McLanahan, president of the asso
ciation last year, and Frailer D. Head.
Mr. Head humorously referred to the
defeats which Yale has recently sustain
ed on the athletic field, at the hands of
Princeton and Harvard, and suggested
that a combination of ozone, oxygen, and
Yale spirit be infused Into the under
graduates. Ho said that he was afraid
that everything was becoming overorgan
Ized at New Haven, and that the indi
vidual was not given opportunity enough
to display ms abilities.

The night before Woodrow Wilson was
nominated for President at Raltlmnr
when the Democratic convention had been
In session many hours and there was a
