NOW THE NIGHTIE DRESS!
The nightgown dresb is here.
Not in America just yet. but in Paris.
It was seen at the races at Auteil Easter Sunday.
This description is for girls only:
It looks like a Greek classic no 'not classy robe, and it has
pronounced openings in front and back! Heavens! The cable
did not say what was under it, but it is made of white crepe
de chine, very loose, tied at the waist with a silken cord. The
description seems brief, girls, but so is the nightie.
Modesty WILL assert itself, however, for with the dress was worn
a hat. A nice little black toque, trimmed with exceedingly
long black Paradise plumes.
The dispatch says that the dress created a sensation at Auteil. What
will it create in America?
For thirty-six yeais tho Federal Gov
ernment has paid one-half ef all tho
expenses of tho city of Washington, in
cluding schools, Pollco and Fire De
partments, and special Improvement?,
such as pavements, sidewalks, and sew
ers. Last year the Federal Government
paid for these expenses about ST.UOOOQO.
It is more than the average State of tho
Union payb for ill of its Stato expenses.
Of thi3 amount, the little Stat.j of to.va
contributes a'bout JIJO.OW, although Its
part of the taxes at home Is twice as
heavy as Is levied on tho property of
the District of Columbia.
"Real estate In Des Moines pays
twenty-twsj mills on the dollar actual
value. Washington pays ten mills. Tho
average paid bv all the cities of the
United States is nineteen mills. Tne
people of Washington pay about one
half the taxes that the average citizen
pays elsewhere and tlrs reduction re
sults from the generous contribution
from the Federal Treasury.
"Is this fair' There Is no reanon
why a person living In the beautiful
city of Washington should not pay as
much for that privilege as other peo
ple have to pay for like residence in
other cities, and the taxing of the
whole people to create a preferential
condition for the people of Washing
ton Is indefensible.
"Tax At True Value."
"Washington has always skillfully
and successfully played the role of the
wiley miser who conceals his wealth
that he might hae face for asking
charity. Real estate has only been
assessed at 44 per cent of Its actual
true value. Jloneys. cred ts, stocks
and bonds, and hoarded wealth. Includ
ing diamonds, have been exempt from
taxation, anu tnere is no inheritance

awessed at not more than one-third ot

That Great Britain Is the nation
which will extract chief benefit out of
the Panama Canal was a fact brcught
out beforo the Senate Committeo on
Interoceanlc Canals today. In tho course
of tho examination of Commissioner
of Navigation E. T. Chamberlain.
Mr. Chamberlain was asked a 1 ot
of questions w.th respect to the num
ber of American essels In the coast
trade, British shipping In the over
seas trade, navigation regulations, and
the like. Much of what he bald had
little relation to tho I0II3 question.
However, sonic Idea of tho preponder
ance of British shipping was given by
l'ii: statements and through statements
o. Senator O'Gorman.
Mr. Chamberlain said sailing ships
could not ue the canal because of the
fre-quent calms over .1 wide stretch of
ocean off the Pacific end of the canal.
He said American steam vessels in the
coastwise trade having a capacity of
1,000 net tons or over, numbered 353. He
estimated that vessels smaller than this
could not with profit use the canal con
tinuously. Mr. Chamberlain was not able to give
the number of British ships In the
overseas trade having a capacity of
l.f'jO net tons or owr. Thus, he did not
establish an accurate comparison of the
number of American coast vessels and
of British vessels in the overseas trade
that- could use the canal. But Senator
O'Gorman. in a question, brought out
the fact that 3.0W urltlsn snips used tne
Suez canal last year. Only two Ameri
can vessels used it.
Mr. Chamberlain said that Great
Britain, 'ncludlng the colonies, had a
total of 10.003 steam vessels In the for
eign trade. These are vessels of 100
tons or over.

Miss Burko first camo into prominence
in London In 1907. and soon afterward
appeared as leading lady with John
Drew In "My Wife." Since then she
has been a Frohman star. Zlegfeld. fa
mous for his annual production of "The
Follies." Is one of the best known fig
ures on Broadway.
Miss Blllic Burko Is a Washington
girl. She was born here and until a
few years ago, when she took up her
abode at Hastlngs-os-the-IIudson called
AV'ashlngton her home. Sho was born
while her mother, Blanche Burke, a
circus performer, was In Washington
to participate In a traveling show.
In her childhood Billlo Burko toured
th country with her father, living the
lifo of the circus performers, with
whom she was a great favorite. When
Ghe was about nine the clown, the mule,
and the girl went to Europe, where the
father played It is to be presumed -before

Then sho went to Iondon to study
singing, and made her debut In that
city at the Pavilion. Her first ap
pearance on the "legit" stage was In
the pantomime. "Beauty and the
Beast," at Glasgow.
After this engagement she returned to
the Indon music halls, where she at
tracted the attention of George Ed

"My Little Canoe.'' which scored a
great hit. Indeed, it was in "My Little
