until tho last few years. In fuct it has
"been only during the present Adminis
tration that thcra has been any exten

Of late, however, because of the con
vention, there has been much Jounrey
ii3g ba?k and forth.
Irs. Robert Craln, wife of the chair

Of the convention comn-lttee four year
ago, motored out to tin Country Club
Frldg,y evening the Mayor of Baltl
Tnoja and Mrs. Preston are giving a
U"B reception for 1,000 of the conven
tion delegates and their friends and
'many Washington people are planning
to go over for that event.
Mrs. Pr8ton Is naturally the rank
ing hostess of the week, and this func
tion 'Mil Inaugurate the week's fes
tivities on a magnificent scale Re
ceiving with Mrs. Preston on this oc
casion will be wives of several of the
party's leaders Mrs. Norman E. Mack,
Mrs. William Jennings Bryan. Mrs. Wil

Mrs. Champ Clark, wife of the Speak
er, who does not expect to attend the
convention because of Important busi
ness transactions which are due to
come up in Washington at the time,
will, however, attend this function. She
will be accompanied by her Interesting
daughter. Miss Genevieve Clark, and
Bennett Clark, their son.
Though Mrs. Clark will not be pres
ent at the .sessions of the convention,
one of the most Interested of the
spectators In the gallery will be Miss
lievleve Clarlt. The Speaker1
daughter is a keen and enthuilastlc
politician and a firm believer In her
distinguished father's ntneis for the
Tuesday afternoon, at the baaeball
game, when the Bpeaker was one of
the privileged few allowed on the field
Just in front of the grandstand for the
first game in Washington since tho
meteoric rise of the Nationals to a
position of prominence in the league;
Bennett was close beside his distin
guished father, one of the most en
thusiastic of fans.
Though there has been little doing in
n social "way. Washington society has
gone baseball tnad of late, and In the
throng at the big game Tuesday there
were many notables much In evidence.
The President and Mrs. Taft, accom
panied by the Vice President, and the
Secretary of State and Mrs. Knox, oc
cupied the Presidential box.
But to get back to the convention at
Baltimore both Washington, and Balti
more have capitulated to the charms of
Mrs. Anne Hamilton Pltzer, the woman
delegate from Colorado, who Is to cast
her vote for her distinguished brother-in-law,
Mrs. Pitser's appearance suggests
nothing of the suffragette and, in fact,
she decries In her gentle voice, tho
methods of her militant sisters in the
cause in England. She is womanly in
every sense of the word and quite the
most compelling exponent of their
cause the women of Colorado could
have chosen to represent them. She
Is most Inordinately proud of her mis
sion, too, and though she has voted
many times, she deems this occasion
an especial privilege.
Mrs. underwood, wife of "the gen
tleman from Alabamawis a well versed
and enthusiastic politician and expects
to attend the meetings every day. She
will have but little time for society as
she is anxious to miss not a moment
from the doings of the politicians in
me Dig nan, and has already declined

of her boys has arrived from school In
Alabama and will accompany his moth
er on her trips back and forth each
