Cblcf Consul Sams of tbe Maryland Divi

demonstration In Baltimore in tbe latter
part of tliis mouth. As far us arranged,
the idea Is to have a parade of the wheel
men of Baltimore and vicinity, and as
there arc about 20,000 riders lu the city
alone, it Is believed that no difficulty
will bo experienced in getting more than
10,000 men In line. The parade will
not be confined to league members, but
will be open to all. Hie presidents and
captains of the various Balliinore clubs
will meet in a few days to arrange details
and provide prizes, etc.
A letter from George Banker, who is In
Paris, which was received by his brother

start in about a month.

the Suffrage Hill, Hut Have Not
Jleeu Given an Opportunity.
The first session ot the Fifty-fourth Con
gress is about to be brottght to a close,
and practically nothing has been done In
regard to the bill Introduced by Repre
sentative Rejburn to determine whether
the present rorm of government for the
District of Columbia shall continue or be
changed to a representative form.
This measure Is regarded as one ot ut
most Importance to the disfranchised citi
zens or Washington, and inasmuch as such
legislation was urged by the various labor
organizations more strongly than from any
ether quarter the leaders are Inclined to
regard tue Inattention given the matter nut
only as an injustice to them, bat a willful
neglect of their Intcrets.
Tlie bill, which provides merely for sub
mitting the question of suffrage to the le
gal voters or the District tu determine
whether or nolthcy desire the present gov
ernment or the Commissioners maintained,
was originally drafted by Mr. F. L. Sjd-
doiis and first introduced In the House by
Representative Hooker of Now York, and
in the Senate by Mr. Palmer late In the
1.1st session of the Fifty-third Congress. It
was not expected that anything would be
done about the matter at that time, but
the bill was presented simply to pave the
way for favorable action by the Incoming
body. Accordingly the s.iinn bill was Intro
duced by ReprcsenUitiv a Reyburn and Sen
ator Galllnger at the opening of the present
UNABLE TO SECURE A HEARING.
Ever since the bill was referred to the.
Committee on the District of Columbia in
the two houses repeated efforts have been
made to have-a hearing granted. About
two months ago the subcommittee ot the
Senate, consisting of Senators Galllnger,
Uansbrough and Faulkner, listened to
the arguments of the citizens' committee,
and it was generally understood that a
favorable report would be made and some
action taken in the matter, but nothing
further was ever done, nowever, not
eveu this much attention has been accord
ed the bill by the House committee.
On several occasions Chairman Baneoek
has been asked to accord the friends of
the propped measure a 1 earing, but has
invariably avoided the matter by agree
ing to appoint a date, each time in the near
future. This he has neglected to do, and
It is alleged wiliruly, seeking In this man
ner to smother the entire question and al

In view ot the fact that Congress will
adjourn In a few dajs, it would be impos
S'ble to secure any action if the commit

The labor organisations are Indignant

WILL OPPOSE MR. BABCOCK'S RE
ELECTION. Mr. W. H. G. S-immons, masterworkman
or D A., No. bO. stated this morning to
a Times reporter that he was about to
open up correspondence with labor leaders
111 Mr. I'abcock's district, with a view or
defeating his re-election. At the two last
nation il labor conventions resolutions have
been adopted declaring in unmistakable
terms ofr the right of franchise to their
brother workmen in the District olColumbia
All of the District labor organizations are
a unltin r.ivorof-surrragc.and every honest
effort will be made on their part to en.
compass the tlefe.it or the chairman of tie
House District Committee.
The workingmen 6f tbe Third Wisconsin
district will be asked to co-operate to this
cud, and-it Is believed they will be suc
cessful. No attempt will be made to de
feat his nomination, as it is believed the
rebuke will bo more to the point if he
fails of election.
Mr. Babcock. will not be the only one
who will loe the votes or the labor men
en this account. Others of the same com
mittee have been singled out and the
organisations 111 licir districts asked to
work against tbem.
"We will go about this matter In no
half-hearted way. We mean business, -and
will make our Influence felt," said Mr. Sim
mons "These Congressmen who are ignoring
us, knowing that we are powerless to
censure them, will find that our friends
in their Lome districts will take care of
that matter 111 our behalf. The right of
Burfrage needs no argument to sustain It
In this country, and there is no rrason why
we should not at least be given an oppor
tunity to express our opinion as to whether
or not we want sutrrage.
"All we aRk Is to t'ecide that question
fer ourselves, and the majority is over
whelmingly In favor of a representative
form of government."
Chairman Babcock Is at present bard a
work in gelling the Congressional com
mittee In worLing order, regarding this as
more important than District suffrage.

business for this season, and the clerk has
WHAT MR. BABCOCK SAYS.
Mr. Babcock, when asked to state why
the District suffrage bill had never been
acted upon, said that he did not think any
explanatiou was necessary, or that he
should be held accountable. The bill, be
said, was one of "minor Importance," of
which the committee, "for want or time,"
bad left hundreds unattended to. No 011c
wnshi favor of the treasure. Everybody,
that is, alle.tcepta few cranks, wercsatis
fled with tl.e-prc-seiit arrangement, and no
change was necessary.
He bellevcJ some parties had asked for a
hearing several times, but he had paid but
little attention to it. There were too
many other more Important subjects for
consideration. He thought. In all proba
bility, nothing would be done regarding

the lien of Mr. Henry Smith, formerly
journal clerk of the Hcue of Representa

the couutry on party history, will attract
attention. It Is a brief history of each and

Mr. Smith's pamphlet starts with a brief
prefatory resume or the history of the
parties which preceded the National l:e

laid the foundation fcr the latter. He
then gives an abstract of the proceedings
of each convcntiri'. putting tbe votes In
tabulated form, and nl-o citing the plat
form constructed at each gathering. An
index makesiteasy to refer to any particu
lar subject, and the whole pamphlet, there

lative student of past and current political
Many Interesting peculiarities of onr
political system are brought iuto told re

is the discrepan cy ltetwcen the popular vote
