The "orislnar Wilson club flsht is
to be settled by giving the Trenton.
X. J., club preference In the inaugural
parade over the Staunton. Va.. club.
The bitter contest between the two
clubs, both claiming priority of organi
zation, has practically settled Itself, for
the Virginians, as members of military
bodies cannot enter In a club section.
Chairman R. N. Harper, of the civic
organizations committee, said today
that the Staunton Club has found It
self disrupted almost entirely because
its members plan to march in the pa
rade as members of other bodies.
Staunton Cools Down.
Staunton, the birthplace of President
fleet Wilson, was wrought up to a high
Pitch when it became known that Tren
ton, X. J., was seeking a leading place
in the parade on a claim of being the
real "original" club, Now there is a
disposition to let Trenton have the
honor without further contest. In view
of the break In the Staunton clutTranks.
Three-fourths of the governors 'from
States east of the Mississippi will prob
ably .be in the inaugural parade. This
la the estimate of Chairman R. X.
Harper today. He thinks that one-half
of all the governors will attend, but the
far Western men are not in a position
to come here because their legislatures
are In session. This is practically the
only reason that any governor gives
xor mammy 10 attend. All have ex
pressed a wish that they might be here.
"Southern hospitality" is the slogan
that the Inaugural committee will put
forth. The greatest gathering of
Southerners in the history of Inau
gurals Is expected on March 4.
Throughout the country will be her
alded the news that Washington's
welcome will be truly Southern.
The word to the country will be
that Washington and her Southern
hosts will give the warmest greet
ing In years to "Everybody alike. The
town will be turned over to the
guests, and everybody will be greeted
wjtli the warmth and cordiality that
marks Southern folks.
Plan Private Dances.
Preston Gibson, one of the social lead
ers of the city, plans to Invite Mr. Wil

Irish Measure Doomed to Defeat
When Vote Is Taken In Brit
LONDON. Jan. 27. The Irish home
rule bill came up for second reading and
debate in thc house ofjords this after
noon. Tho measure was passed In the
commons ten days ago. with the over
whelming maporlty of 110 for the gov
That the lords would reject the bill
was certain, but It will be an impotent
rejection. Times have changed slnco
IKC, when the upper house was able
to force an election by throwing out the
home iule bill which the late William
E. Gladstone had put through the com
mons. It was thc second home rule bill
that had been Introduced under the veto
act. Premier Asqulth will merely have
to get his present bill through thc com
mons three times, and It will automatic
ally become a law, regardless pf the
Bill To Be Forced.
The Asqulth bill will be offered In
the next parliament which convenes in
February, and again next year, if the
Lords reject lt a second time.
Regardless of the suffragette ques
tion In the commons, the house of lords
was paclced at noon and. the galleries
were packed. The full house consists
of 6ZS members and so well had the.
Marquis of Lansdowne and the op
position whips done their work that
more than 400 peers were In their seats,
and It was expected that at least 500
would be there to vote.
Determined to smash the, bill by the
biggest possible majority, Lansdowne
-jummoned his followers from the utter
most ends of the earth and scenes sim
ilar to those which marked the famous
budget debate of 1909. were witnessed
In Palace yard. Time after time the
rollcemen on duty stopped and ques
tioned peers whose faces were un
familiar, who are never seen In the
house except on state occasions, when
they can be recognized by their robes.

Age and Infirmities made no differ

were conservative or liberal as decrepit
old aristocrats were helped from their

and the Earl or Halsbury. aggressive
conservative and ex-chancellor, who ls

arrogant old Marquis of Clanrlcarde,
worst hated of all Irish landlords, was
early on the scene, despite his eighty
