HARPER 0. K.'s THE PLAN
Indian, Original of Head on $5 Note,
Coming Here with Peace Pipe
For tha first time In the history of in
augural parades the solid front of mas
culinity will be broken March 4 by a sec
tion devoted entirely to the fairer sex.
This developed yesterday following the
arrival at tho htadouartcrs of Chairman
Hobert X. Harper, of the committee on
civic organizations, of a letter from the
National Peace Congress of New York,
which body offered to organize a section
of women not suffragists, tut peace
workers to take a place in the parade.
Chairman Harner quickly put his O. K.
on the proposition and probably from
this date on one fit the features of the
quadrennial demonstration In honor of
the victorious Presidential candidate will
be a section of women.
Col. Harper dispatched a letter to the
headquarters of the National Peace Con-
press to the effect that the only condi
tion necessary fur the appearance of tho
women In the parade was that they
.idopt and wear some distinctive garb.
Mr. Harier suggested, as serviceable as
well as effective, a uniform of light rain
coats and sashes, and also that ihe fair
marchers carry white parasols, which, as
well as being a striking feature in the
general design, would help against the
foul weather the ground hog prophesied.
10,000 In Parade.
Torty thousand persons will participate
in the parade, according to the latest
estimate, and this number. It is expected,
will be increased as plans for the event

The name of C. S. Barrett, president of
the Farmers' Union of America, got a
boom for Secretary of Agriculture to-day
when a delegation of five Congressmen
called to urge his appointment. The vis

Kentucky, Tribble of Georgia, Russell of
Missouri. Callaway of Texas, and Good

urged that a corporation omcial must
willfully have violated the law before

President Presses Button;
Officially Opens Auto Show
6,000 Persons Visit Exhibit on First Night Many
Interesting Displays Attract Crowds Hall
Decorated as Italian Garden.
With the opening of the Automobile
Show of Washington Automobile Deal
ers' Association at Convention Hall last
night, there was started what the auto
enthusiasts assert Is the greatest spec
tacular display or automobiles ever
staged In Washington. Between 5,000
and 6.000 people attended the exhibition
during the evening, and the leaders of
the association predict a record attend
ance between now and closing time
By 7:43 o'clock the hall was well crowd
ed. and promptly at S o'clock. President
Taft touched a button In the White
House, which simultaneously lighted the
1,5(0 electric lights, loosed the binding of
a huge American nag furled, and attach
ed to the roof of the building, and set to
ringing several Immense magneto gongs
in different parts of the hall. The fas
tenings of the flag released. It unrolled
and hung gently swaying over the as
sembly, and the Marine Band struck up
an air that was tromply swallowed up In
the clamor of Horns and shouts that
greeted the official opening of the show.
This Is the first time that a President of
the United States has ever opened a show
in Washington, and It Is expected that
President Taft will attend this week.
The decorations of the hall this year
are especially effective. The effort has
been to present the effect of an Im
mense Italian garden-The different dis
plays are Inclosed in white trellis work
supported by white posts something
af'c the or-J.fr of a pergola and In Hie
smllax and poinscttia. The celling Is
Hidden by American nags.
There are forty-two separate exhibits
in which are seen cars of every descrip
tion. The cheapest car is a small road
ster at J630. and the most expensive a
great limousine, valued at $6,230. There
are many stripped chassis showing the
entire mechanism of the cars.
The most unusual sight of the show
is the three wheeled Knox tractor, a
truck of three wheels carrying a pow
erful motor that la designed to haul a.
Ioad of from five to twenty tons. The
nrst sale of the evening was claimed
by the White Company, the machine
befng a 1.500-pound White truck that
went to Thomas II. Martin.
The officers of the Washington Auto
mobile Dealers' Association were par
ticularly gratified last night at the suc
cess of the first night of the show. The
man to wnom the most credit for this
is probably due Is T. Oliver ProBey.
chairman of the show committee and
president of the association. He has
worked unceasingly to get everything
In running order at the aDDolnted hour
and has been assisted zealously by the
other officers and members of the as
