Senator Sutherland of Utah, who haa

The compensation act now In Con

before. Judge Pugli. of the District PO;
lice Court and stated that oho would
represent her mother and suffer what
punishment the court saw fit to Inflict.
"But." suld Judge Pugh. "suppose I
find the violation serious enough to
warrant a Jail sentence, would ou go
to tall for your mother?"
Miss Trumbull, who, evidently knew
nothing of Police Court procedure, and
was In deadly earnest, swallowed sev
eral times before she could speak, and
then. In a tremulous voice answered,
Judge Pugh declared that such filial
devotion set a precedent for his court,
and, In View of it he would postpone the
en bo Indefinitely until Mrs. Trumbull
was In physical condition to answer the
charge In person. No bond was re
quired. Mrs. Trumbull Is the owner of a
nnmbor of trucks and wagons, one of
which was reported for working a lame
horse. Mrs. Trumbull does not have
personal charge of the trucks, but being
the owner, she would be responsible (or
any cruelty that Is dons the horses.

CALLED BEST OE
American Sculptors Vigor
ously Defended By
The statue of General Thomas, tn
Thomas circle. Is the finest example of
equestrian art In Washington, accord
ing to Augustus Lukeman, a well
known sculptor who delivered a lec
ture before the Washington Society of
Pino Arts In the new National Museum
last night A vigorous dofense of
American art, and particularly of Amer
ican sculpture, was made by the speak
er, who declared It had been over
praised by sealers and sneered at by
critics with unjustifiable severity.
"American sculpture is among the
leaders In the world In the plastic art,"
fald Mr. Lukeman. "We are free from
ocsl tradition, and can, therefore, seo
the best of the world's work with an
unbiased eye and mind. Home law
should be enacted whereby !0 per rent
oi ine wuoje coil or a ounaing or What
ever It may be, should bo devoted to
sculpture, paintings, bronze work,
stained glass windows, and similar art
Mr. Lukeman said Italy received
about 5O.O00.ooo a year from foreigners
who spend all or part of their time in
that country studying art. The speaker
said thl was a splendid capitalization
of Italy's art. and that similar condi
tions prevailed In Germany, France,
and other countries. He expressed the
opinion that this country could leirn
In that respect from foreign countries.
A tribute to Miss Leila Mechlin, sec
retary of the society, was paid by
Thomas Nelson Page, chairman of the
evening. He said she waa chiefly re
sponsible for popularizing the lectures
and bringing art closer to the public
nary this season.
