THE WASHINGTON TIMES, WEDNESDAY; JANUARY 15; 1913.
GET HMHOLT IN
Fisher Is Agafnst Use of Pen
, sion Building for the In-
f augural Ball.
Inaugural committee leaders had a
distinct Jolt today when they learned
of secretary of the Interior Fisher re
port against the Pension building for the
Inaugural ball. The shpek resulted
from an expectation of a different re
port a the result of conferences be
tween Mr. Fisher, Chairman W. C.
Eustis, of the Inaugural committee, and
some subcommittee chairmen.
Mrv Fisher's report In brief rccom
aaandg that the nation pay through
Congressional appropriation J1CO.00O for
the inauguration of President-elect "Wll
aon and holding a national reception at
Ihe Capitol. It agrees, nowover, to the
co-operation of the Interior Department
In ball plans on a limited scale. In
augural committee leaders had an
ilclpated, after conferences with the
Secretary, that the Pension building
subject would be adjusted satisfactorily,
and had- planned for certain features
for the ball on this basis.
Plans Jflay Be Upset
Plans made by Chairman O. H. P.
Johnson, of tho supper committee, are
likely to be upset by tho Secretary's
recommendation that, if Congress grants
the use of the" "Pension hall, no rooms
shall 'be given over for the usual sup
per. Mr.-'Johnson is willing to elimin
ate the supper arrangements, but he
! had been led to oelleve that there would
' bo no recommendation against them on
( the part of tho Secretary.
t Other plans, practically arrangea ub
heretofore by Chairman Callahan,
the ball comfort committee, will have to
be altered also, for Secretary Fisher said
that cloakrooms must be constructed
outside the building. Mr. Callahan is
willing and ready to plan for temporary
quarters just -outside the Pension build
ing. Chairman "W. C. Eustis made no com
ment on Secretary Fisher's Teport
further than that the Inaugural commit
tee would persist in Its plan for an in
augural ball In Pension hall at the ex
pense of visitors.
In Inaugural committee circles today,
U is felt that the Secretary's recom
mendation will furnish ammunition for
the opponents of the Pension building i
plan, but It Is not Deuevea max. u win

whose presence Is undesirable, it Is ar
sued. could not be excluded from a free
Chalrman Eustis in his conferences
with Secretary Fisher, stated that the
committee had full realisation 'of the
crowded condition- of the Pension build
ing and that it was willing to make
concessions so that the work of send
ing out 230,000 pension checks and a
number of vouchers would not be de
layed in March.
Early Action Urged.
Early action on the heppard reso
lution for the Pension hall use is an
ticipated In both the House and Senate
Committees on Public Buildings and
The general inaugural committee meets
at 11 o'clock tomorrow morning but it
was said today that there would be
so consideration of the legislative mat-i
ters. Chairman Hamilton or the legis
lative committee, is not in the city to
day, and there is no new action on the
part or bis committee.
.No women will have a place In the
membership of the Inaugural commit
tee. It is said. Chairman Eustis has not
declared himself on this point, but as
he has consistently refused to enlarge
his committee, probably he will not
break the rule.
Mortarboard caps with colored 'capes
will be the distinctive uniform of the
big college delegation in the inaugural
parade. If preliminary plans of Chair
man R. N. Harper of the civic organi
zations committee carry. All of the col
lege men. from the staid graduates of
fifty years ago to the gay youth of '16
will be attired in these costumes. More
over they will carry caues decorated
with their college colors.
Chairman Harper announced today
that the organization work i i .

DEFEATED IN RACE
"Jim Crow" Pullman
Car Issue Is Up
The "Jim crow" Issue again Is before
the United States Supreme Court. This
time It has reached a decidedly original
and novel form. Miss Pearl Morris, of
Mississippi, asks the tribunal to sustain
the decision of the Mississippi court
which awarded her $15,000 from tho Ala-
cama and Vicksburg railroad for com
pelling her to occupy a berth in a Pull
man car In which three colored men
occupied berths. The Supreme Court of
Mississippi reduced the damages to
$2,000. The case possesses a new feature
in that the Mississippi courts have in
terpreted the "Jim crow" law of that
State to apply to interstate as well as
to intrastate travel.

five-year term ended In 1904. In the
three-year period which haa elapsed
since then It is estimated the improve

that, because he lost, he did not want

"I am indeed pleased at the choice
