Attacking the American Govern

which had plunged the islands In

and defeated the ends of justice,

J. Dawson Williams Avowed
Candidate for Place of Sen
ROCKVILLE. Md., Jan. 2S.-J. Dew
son Williams, of Kensington, has
made formal announcement of his can
didacy for the Democratic nomination
for the State senate from this county
io succeed Senator Blair I-ee. The
probabilities seem to be that Mr. Wil
liams will have no opposition. lie will
have the support of the Peter broth
ers, who arc his close personal and
political friends, and he Is also the
choice of the friends of Col. Spencer C.
With that combination behind him,
considered in connection with his per
sonal popularity and influential family
connections. h,s nomination seems as
sured. Senator T.e nt pmirap wlllTinr
! be a candidate, as he is Just now en
gaged in hunting bigger game" in the
shape of a United States Senatorship.
No. Rival Expected.
Should Mr. Williams have an oppo
nent for the nomination, it will be
due to the faction of which Senator
Blair Lee is the leader, but it is not
thought likely that the Lee people will
put forward a candidate ' for the
reason that Mr. Williams and Senator
Lee have been political friends since
each became active in the politics of the
county, and as the to have many
worm mutual friends among whom
there is a feeling that Mr. Williams
deserves the honor.
In 3909 there wag a movement in the
county for Mr. Williams as the succes
sor of Mr. Lee In the State senate, but
Mr. Williams would not consider a con
test, and earnestly supported Senator
Lee. as he did, also, in the gubernatorial

governor general of the Society of Col
onial Cavaliers and author of the ultra
fashionable Peerage ot America, said
"The Smithsonian Museum could eas-l
11 v hRVf heen altered over for the nur-1
poses of the inaugural ball. The Presi
dential, Executive and social business
Is the chief industry of Washington, as
much as the ecclesiastical and ancient
ruins business is that of modern Rome.
Anything which militates against that
strikes Washington in its solar plexus
its tradespeople. In the abandonment
of the ball, one falls to detect whether
the latent motive Is one of the residual
elements of Princeton blue Presbyteri
anlsm or the ineffectual bid of a species
of demagoguery. "But the Ideas of the
Cavalier, not of the Puritan, are ram
pant today in every grade of American
society. It is not the ultra-fashionable
whose pleasure Is to be curtailed by
the omission of the ball, but representa
tives of the backbone of our common
wealththe middle and upper classes.
"At all events, after the rcrormed so
cial etiquette of the "White House, so
successfully inaugurated br Theodore
Roosevelt, and ablv seconded by Presi
dent and Mrs. Taft, we humbly thust
that the Executive mansion is not going
to fall back Into a state of social sans
cullotlsm. "Being myself a Democrat, and hav
ing been in the recent campaign a zcal
ou amateur political worker In support
of Mr. "Wilson's election, both in Fifth
avenue. New York, where I live, and
down in the lower East Side, where a
whole army of beneficiaries of a phil
anthropic association founded by me
more than ten years ago reside. I can
not be charged, in the expression of
these somewhat radical social views
with a spirit of poltical partisanship."
Keen Rivalry Under Way.
The inaugural commute is pitted
against the suffragette pageant organ
izers In a keen competition for su
premacy In parade matters. Blocked Jn
etery move, the women have made up
their minds to eclipse the Inaugural pa
rade. The citizens Inaugural commit

The cdntrovcrsy between the inaugu

liam S. Riley, and the suffragette or
ganizers Is not at an end, but there are
signs today of a compromise.
May Compromise on Stands.
Mr. Rllev wants the women to give
up the Sherman Squaro stands plan, but
tney feel that their fight to obtain tho
permission was too difficult to allow
them to make such an easy surrender.
Consequently thty have refused point
blank to submit to Mr. Riley s .propo
sition on that point. He has modified
his terms, and it seems today that the
warring factions may come to some
agreement, satisfactory to the women,
and likewise prolltable to Mr. Riley;
The Sherman Squaw stand for page
ant day will be constructed by some
contractor, soon to be selected by the
suffragettes. The remaining stands,
under the direction of Mr. Riley, will
probably be used on pageant day under
a partnership arrangement with tho
Veto Ends Reception Plan.
Tile President-elect's veto of the
White House reception plan makes it
positive that there will be no public in
augural social event. Private Individ
uals and societies probably will provide
brilliant affairs for even a larger crowd
than would have attended an inaugural
ball or reception. Tho inaugural com
mittee Is glad of Mr. Wilson's stand on
the White House reception, and is en
tirely satisfied over the certainty that
there will "now be no reception. Mr.
Wilson'd ban on an invitation reception
and his mandate for a democratic af
fair. If any were arranged, has put tho
final nail in the social arrangements of
the inaugural leaders.
The veto of the reception and ball is
turning the attention of society women
to the suffragette pageant event. They
will now take a more active part In iu
arrangement than they would have done
if there had been some social affair
planned by the citizens Inaugural com
mittee or the Congressional Inaugural
