Proceedings at Meeting
This Morning. ?
j President Roost veil had as visitors at
; noon today a lajge delegation of memijer;
i of the Woman's Interdenominational
.Missionary Union of this city, which has b
membership of more than jO.iX"! Chris
tian women. The motto of this organiza
tion Is the betterment of the people
through Jesus Christ. The visit to the
White House was by appointment.
The members recently presented to Con
gress a petition requesting the enactment
of laws for prohibition in the District,
prohibiting; Sunday traffic, to prohibit the

importation and sale of opium and other
matters. The call at the White House to
day was to enlist the support of the Pres
ident for these causes.
The delegation was ushered into the re
ception parlor promptly at noon and the
President received them very graciously.
The presentations were made by Mrs.
John N. Culbertson, president of the
union, after which she spoke of the up
lifting and charitable work tlio associa
tion is doing. She handed the President
a eppy of the petition-memorial that lias
been presented to Congress and the Dis
trict Commissioners, and requested him to
do all he can to further the matters em
In reply the President said he Is- very
much interested in the work of the asso
ciation: that he is in sympathy with the
objects sought in the memorials and will
read the paper careful];' and act as far
as he can consistently. As to the immi
gration memorial lie would refer it at
once to the Secretary of Commerce and
I.,abor. and at some'favorable time confer
personally witli him on the matter.
The members of the delegation said
they were delighted with their visit and
that the President had a kindly word for
each of them.
Tlie resolution-petition, which was pre
sented to Congress several days ago and
to President Roosevelt, follows:
"The people of the district many
years ago. when they had th right of suf
frage. through their own selected city
council, enacted a law prohibiting Sunday
traffic, except of necessity and mercy,
which was well observed for a dozon years
until it was discovered that the mayor a
the time of its enactment had inadvertent
ly failed to sign, whftli made the law in

mass meetings, and more recently th
clerks, through their labor organizations,
have asked that tiie day rest law be en
"The Commissioners of the District o
Columbia have twice in past years ap
proved a bill now pending' in Congress
introduced by Mr. Allen, which prohibits
Sunday toil or traffic, including traffic in
"The Woman's Interdenominational
Missionary Union, representing the vari
ous churches of the District and various
societies of womeru appeal to th# Senate
and House of Representatives to enact
this bill, or some other that will give an
adequate and complete Sunday rest in the
District of Columbia, as Is accorded by
the Sunday laws that have been main
tained from the beginning in all the
states, save one, of which Congress is
Reference to Opium.
"The opium traffic is a great hindrance
to missions, morals and legitimate com
merce alik*; and as many governments
are moving together to prohibit the sale
and Importation of opium; and a large
amount of the drug is imported into the
United States and its Ihsular possessions;
"We earnestly petition Congress to pro
hibit the importation and sale of opium,
except guardedly for medicinal uses; and
to make this prohibition as extensive as
the jurisdiction of Congress, including the
Philippines and Hawaii, as well as tlie
"The indulgence in the use of intoxicat
ing liquors is a menace: we indorse the
movement now being brought before Con
gress for tiie prohibition of the manufac
ture and sale of all intoxicating liquors in
the District of Columbia.
"We also favor proper and wise legis
lation whereby foreigners shall not be
deprived of the right and 'privilege of
prospective citizenship, at the same time
shall not be received in numbers too
great for assimilation, or permitted to en
graft practices or principles inconsistent
with our Christian institutions, or that
might become subversive of that right
eousness which exalteth a nation."
Views of Mis. Culbertson.
The foregoing was signed by Mrs. John
N. Culbertson. president of the Woman's
Interdenominational Missionary Union.
"The petitions have been filed In both
houses of Congress in the usual form,"
she said today. "As the District has
neither senator nor representative of its
own, and the National capital is a matter
of national interest, therefore we earnest
ly rely upon the active co-operation of
every senator and congressman in secur
ing the proposed legislation, which is in
exact accordance with Gladstone's great
definition of the purpose of the law?"l'o
make it as hard as possible to do wrong,
and as easy as possible -o do right.' "

Culbertson to the White House were the

that after the separation the alleged acts
of Infidelity took place. Thomas H. Pat

WANT THE LAW AMENDED.
Suggestion of Grocers Regarding
Sales of Inflammable Fluids.
Several members of the Washington
Retail Grocers' Association appeared be
fore the board of Commissioners at ;i
public'hearing this morning and urged the
amendment &f the police regulation!* gov
erning the sale of gasoline, kerosene and
other imflammable fluids. They want the
regu'ations amended in such a way as to
either permit dealers in these so-called in
flammable fluids to sell them in stores or
places where lights are burning, or else
entirely prohibit such sales aftir sunset
or some arbitrary hour.
The regulations governing the sale of
these fluids permit their sale from what
are known as tank wagons, and the sales
are confined to the sidewalks In front of
houses. According to the arguments ad
vanced by the grocery men. this regulation
permits a discrimination against the gro
eerymen and they do not think there is
any more danger for" such dealer to sell
the fluids than to permit the saie from
the tank wftgons after dark, as the pur
chasers from the latter have to carry the
fluids from the sidewalks 'nto their houses
and in doing so pass through lighted
