EVENT OF CAPITAL
Silver Wedding Festivities Last
Night Eclipsed All Previous
Events of the Kind.
President and Mrs. Taft's silver
wadding celebration is not over. The
official part of it was concluded last
night, but tonight the hospitality of
the Executive and his wife will be
extended to all Washington.
The White House grounds will be
aglow just as they were last night
The Marine Band will play just as it
did then, and the lower apartments
of the mansion will be thrown open
to the guests who come.
Not one detail of the splendid il
lumination scheme has been dis
turbed today. The electric lights re
main on the big house, the search
lights will be trained on the flag,
on the Monument, and o nthe foun
tain as they were last night, and the
ftrray will in no wise be different
Is Mrs. Taft's Plan.
This Idea of entertaining the people
or Washington was conceived by Mrs.
(Tart. It was, as everybody under
stands. Impracticable to open the gates
last nlgbt. There had been nearly
10,000 people Invited and any more than
that number would have bo crowed the
gardens as to make It unpleasant foe
It Is practicable to open the grounds
tonight, however, and the executive
family hopes that Just as many people
as are Interested will accept the hospl
talltv of the President and Mrs. Taft.
The President will not be In the city,
else he would receive the visitors to
night Just as he received them last
night. He left for New York today and
will not be back for a week. Mrs. Taft,
(however, expects to appear on the south
balcony during the evening and smile
down upon her guests.
Electric Arch to Remain.
According to the White House an
nouncement, the receiving platform on
the lawn will not be disturbed until
after the reception tonight. Also it Is
planned to keep the arch above it, in
which "1SS6-1911" are described in elec
tricity, in position for the benefit of to
night s visitors.
The Marine Band will occupy a posi
tion in the south garden and will play
from shortly after 8 o'clock until about
JL A splendid program is promised.
The Engineer Band, which played in
the south balconj, will not be present
lonigni on account 01 otner work, other
wise, the program w 111 oe Just as it was
at the official reception last night
The 'tt eather Bureau promises fair
weather tonight There Is not even the
uneany likelihood of showers, as there
was last night
To Open at 8 o'clock.
The gates will be opened at 8 o'clock.
The entrance at the east side of the
grounds next to the Treasury will be
used for the reception tonight. Not
many carriages are expected this time,
as the fete tonight is purely Informal.
Dress clothes will hardly be worn by
The plan Is simple. It was conceived
with the .single Idea of giving the Pres
ident and Mrs. Taft's neighbors In
Washington an opportunity to see the
illumination and the decorations of the
White House and the gardens. Not in
tiU history of the Mansion has It been
so splendidly arrayed as it was for the
celebration of the Taft silver wedding
Many people thronged the side streets
last night to get a glirt pse of the deco
rations, but these were not visible to
the best advantage from the outside.

Washington Attorney Tells
Why Present Weak Law ,
Should Be Changed.
"Virginia must strengthen her divorce
laws or make herself liable to the
rharge of encouraging the divorce in
dustry within her borders."
This was the statement made today
bv Walter C. Clephane. Washington at
torney. When the District Commissioners were
asked, several years ago. to appoint
three commissioners to represent the
District of Columbia in the National Di
vorce Congress they responded prompt
ly, and one of the Washington lawyers
the selected was Mr. Clephane.
When, a little later, they were asked
to appoint three delegates to represent
the District In the Commission of Uni
form I.awh, they asraln responded
promptly, and selected Mr. Clephane as
one of the District representatives.
Clephane Well Qualified.
The National Divorce Congress draft
ed a uniform dlvorie law, which has
stneo been adopted bv several States.
Its work has now been taken up by the
Commission on Uniform State Laws,
which Is striving to have all States
adopt uniform statutes on divorce. Mr.
Clephane Is taking a prominent part
in this work.
It w 111 be seen from the foregoing that
Mr. Clephane Is Qualified to speak on
the subject of divorce and divorce laws.
What he says regarding conditions
growing out of the practice of Wash
ington men and women getting divorces
In Virginia is. therefore, bound to be of
Interest. He discussed this subject at
length today for The Times.

FORMING OP TRUST
Sugar Baron's Son Says His
Father "Saved" the
Henry O. Havemeyer, former "boss"
of the Sugar trust, held up since his
death as the Black Buccaneer of the
sugar business, who strewed his finan
cially successful career with the
wrecks of competitors, and was a wiz
ard of high finance, was today glowing
ly eulogized as a "philanthropist" by
a man who said he was "proud of him"
his son. Horace Havemeyer.
The son's defense of his father came
as a dramatic interlude to an otherwise
dull session today of the Hardwlck Sug
ar Trust Investigating committee of the
House. From a recital of his father's
course In the formation of the National
Sugar Refining Company, the twenty-flve-year-old
son of the former sugar
king, digressed swiftly to voice In a
voice deep with emotion his pride in
"He was accused of many things,"
the young man said, leaning forward In
"his seat and clasping his hands earn
estly in front of him. "But I know he
never did anything unless he thought
It was for the best interest of the
stockholders of the company. He didn't
have much of an Interest in the American
Sugar Reflnlnfi Company. He drew
J100.000 a year salary that was pretty
large, maybe, but he ran the company.
Nobodv has yet succeeded him in that
He got rid of his stock in the company
because he believed a lot of specula
tors were engaged in a plan to boost
the stock. He thought It would break
and that a lot of Innocent stockholders
would be busted."
Gives New Light.
Horace Havemeyer gave some new
light on the vast sugar holdings of his
father, and reluctantly admitted that
when Henry O. Havemeyer died he left
an estate apprised at J15.000.000. About
J8.00O.O00 of this consisted of sugar hold
ings, and J7,000,000 in real estate and
railroad stocks. There were no bonds,
he said, because his father "was not a
believer In bonds."
-The par value of the stocks of the
various sugar companies held by his
father at his death was about J10.006.400,
Young Havemeyer said he went into
the sugar business In 1903, when he was
seventeen years of age, entering a
Brooklyn refinery to learn the business.
On June 1, 1905, he said he was made
head of the sales department of the
American Sugar Refining Company.
Denies an Agreement
He said that never to his knowledge
had sugar been sold during his con
nection with the "trust" under a con
tract specifying the selling price. He
admitted he had heard this had been
done before his time.
The witness said he resigned as a dl
rectoi of the American Sugar Refining
Company in order to devote all his time
to large holdings in the National Sugar
Company. He declared with some em
phasis that at the present time he per
sonally "held no stock In the American
Sugar Refining Company, and didn't
Havemeyer defended his father's ma
nipulation of the common stock of the
National Company, testified to by James
H, Post yesterday.
'Your father was the moving spirit in
the purchase of the National, wasn't
he?'' asked Hardwlck.
' "I think so," answered Havemeyer.
His father, he Bald, had originally in
tended to sell the stock he held in the
National to the American Sugar Refin
ing Company, but was advised that It
would possibly be illegal.
Young Havemeyer said It was futile
for the committee to expect to discover
from witnesses what was In his father's
mind In conducting his business. He
said his father only talked of his af
fairs to Mrs. Havemeyer, sr., his wife,
and Mrs. Havemeyer' sister.

WITNESS ATTRACTIVE TARGET .
FOR THE DEMOCRATIC PROBERS
By JUDSON C. WELLIVER.
Cyrus H. Mccormick, president of the International Harvester Com
pany, was the first witness, in the new Lorimer Inquiry which formally
He told the Committee on Privileges and Elections of the efforts of
Edward Hines to induce the Harvester Company to give $10,000 toward
a fund of $100,000 to pay for the election of Lorimer.
The first day of the new inquiry was decidedly Interesting, despite
that the testimony went over ground already familiar. Mr. McCormlck
assured the committee that the impression had been decidedly fixed In
hlB mind that money had been raised and corruptly used In the Illinois
Legislature, but his own company had never participated.
Senator Lorimer did not appear in the committee room, and neither
did his lawyer. Judge Hanecy. Both will appear tomorrow.
Mr. McCormlck, president of a J100.000-.000 trust that is under in
vestigation by the Department of Justice, was an attractive target for
some of the Democratic Senators, who pressed questions about trust con
tributions for political and corruption purposes. The questions were all
parried neatly and at length Senator Kern asked:
"Well, Mr. McCormlck, would you tell the committee whom you
favored for Senator when Lorimer was chosen?"
Mr. McCormick's answer came quick and unexpected and it ended
this line of inquiry.
"I do not know that my personal preferences are interesting to the
committee," he said, "but they may be judged from the fact that person
ally I am a Democrat"
In the laugh that circumnavigated the committee table and was par
ticipated in by spectators, the Democratic anti-trust investigation was
MAN LORIMER DEFEATED IS A SPECTATOR.
Former Senator Hopkins of Illinois
was present as a spectator. The man
whom Lorimer defeated and who could
have been himself elected according to
reports if he had been as "right" as
Lorimer was, looked exceeding cheerful.
He had been enjoying his law practice
very much more the last year than his
successful rival has been enjoying his

about the election of Lorimer at his
offices, soon after the Lorimer election.

had made but a self-serving declaration
of doubtful admissibility. Mr. McCor

Mr. McCormlck said his company for
many years bought lumber of Hines.
There had never been any differences
between them. Hines and Funk had,
however, no relations that could Justify
such an approach.
"Later," he said, "Mr. Funk came to
me and told me, in ray office, of an
other conference between Funk and
Hines, at Funk's office. Funk said
Hines came to his office excited and
began a conversation, referring to their
first talk. Funk was not pleased, and
terminated this talk as soon as possible.
