Cites Actual Facts.
Washington, Feb. 8.-Five thous
and children who attend the public
schools in Chicago are habitually
hungry, and 10,000 other ehildren in
that city are not sufficiently mourish
ed, aeording to a letter from the sar
perintendent of schools of Chicag
from rwich Representative Henry
(Tex.) read excerpts in the house
"Texas," declared Mr. Henry, re
plying to a recent speech in defense
of the new tariff law, delivered by
Representative Boutell (Ill.), "Is
properous in spite of the Payne
AMrich tariff bill. If that law had
anything to do with the prosperity of
'Dexas, why does it not bring pros
perity to Chicago and other greal
eities of this country?"
Cotton too High.
Again replying to Mr. Boute$'
speeeh, Mr. Heniy said he did not
the price -of cotton was too high
or were any other farm produets
ioo high, on the farm. Cotton being
z the free list, was not affected by
the tariff, he declared, but its price

Referring to high prices, Mr. Hen.
ry was intererupted by Mr.\ Bouel
twho said that with prime heavy beef
selling on the hoof in Texas at $100,
he did not see how the people of
Chicago could buy them at $6 on
"Does the gentleman from Texas
want to reduce the tariff on eattlel'
inquired Mr. Boutell.
Would Jail Beef Kings.
"I will repeal the duty on beef if
the gentleman from Illinois will hel
put every member of the beef trust

"To the beef trust."
"But to whom does the gentleman

Henry. "Then the 15,000 hungry
chitaren of Chicago should haunt the
gentleman from Illinois."
Mr. Boutell, replying to statements
'by Mr. Her.ry, declared that today
there were no hungry children in
the pa3blie schools of Chicago, thai
that statement applied only to con1
ditions attending the panic of 1907.
Mr. Boutell at length reviewed
conditions in Texas to show the pros.
perity of that State- which he claim
ed was the result of natiordal Repub~
~lican policies giving stabiity to the
business affairs of the State.
Henry's Statement Verified.
'Chicago, Feb. 8.--The statement
that 5,000 children in Chicago go to
echool hungry each day and that 10,
000 more are hot properly nourished

T1he National Geographic Society
today resolved to send an expedi

provided the necessary funds can be

half was given tonight at the Metro
politan opera house, was not.ified im
mediately of the action of the board
of managers of the IGeogra.phic so
Capt. Bartlett, who was in corn
mand of the Roosevelt, -which Peary
used on his successful trip to the
Northi Pole, probably will be placed

Antarctic regions. With the excep
tion of Commander Peary, the mem
bers of the expedition will be the
same as those who returned last yeaa
from the frozen north.
The Roosevelt, including comiplete
equipment, sledges and all, is prac
tically in readiness to be stored wit-h
provisions and start on- her'search of
the ouly big goal on the globe whieb
has not yet been reached.
