Secretary of War Stlmson came in
or a good deal of criticism for not
cceding to the request of the suf-
-agists for a guard- of troops .from
"ort Myef. It was declared that the
oliee "were partially absolved from
lame, because the Commissioners had
idorscd "as advisable" the request for
guard of soldiers, and these appeals
iad been treated- "wlthiinfllfference" by
fHcIalsVof the War "Department. Sev--al
speakers advocated appealing to
ongress, to investigate the entire
PJeasea With the Parade.
The success of'the pageant from the
oman's -point of view then came In for
nihuslastlc encomiums, and it -was
'ged that a similar parade 'be made a
"mature fevery four years. Tentative
lans for this were discussed.
Dr. Shaw, as president of the Na
lonal American "Woman Suffrage As-
t-ociation. extended thanks to tne -worn-r
n of Washington for their hearty sup
port of 'the pageant undertaking. She
congratulated the women on " their
dignity and self-control In the "face
of trying conditions." "Come -what
