An amusing story is beintr told
among the friends of General Sum
ner, U. S. A., until recently the com
manding officer of the Pacific divi
General Sumner, who was in Oak
laud for a stay, left the city after
the earthquake and went to San Ra
fael. There he was informed by one
of the guiding spirits of the village
that he must aid in patrolling and
guarding against fire and unruly ref
ugees. Something in General Sum
ner's bearing evidently impressed the
man, for, after a moment's thought,
"I think I'll make you a second
"Thank you," answered General
Sumner, "I don't think any rank ever
conferred upon me pleased me more
unless it was when I was made a
Major General in the regular army."

A painter was praising the other
day the artistic taste of John G.
Johnson, the famous Philadelphia
lawyer. Mr. Johnson has collected
one of the finest private galleries in
the world, and as a connoisseur he
has few living equals.
"A young impressionist," said the
painter, "got John G. Johnson to vis
it his studio last year. He showed
his latest picture, and tried to get
Mr. Johnson to buy it. But Mr.
Johnson would have none of it. He
said politely that he thought the
picture was not good.
"This so annoyed the impres
sionest that he let his temper get
the better of him. He said hotly:
" 'After all.' Mr. Johnson, what
do you know about pictures? You
never painted any?
" My dear sir,' the lawyer re
torted, smiling and rubbing his
glasses with his handkerchief, 'I
know a bad egg. but I never laid
one." —Minneapolis Journal.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 11.—Presi

work of the Woman's Army Canteen
club, an organization formed for the
purpose of bringing about the sale
of beer and light wines in the can
teens at the army posts.
A committee accompanied by Rep
resentative Kahu of California called
on President Roosevelt today. The
delegation consisted of Mrs. Inez

J. Walter Mitchell, a Spanish war
veteran, and Mrs. Henry B. Shurt

the officers of the organization on the
work they are doing, and they left
the White House with the impres
sion that the president will place
himself at the head of the organiza
tion. He said the organization is
doing a good work in the interests
of the army and the enlisted men,
and expressed the wish that the press
of the country would help along the
After the conference Representa
tive Kahn said:
"A grave mistake was made when
the soldiers were deprived of beer
and other light wines under decent
circumstances and forced to go else
where for stronger drinks if they
wished to satisfy their desire for
stimulants. The result has been a
menace to the army, as shown In
every report of the principal officers
of the war department.
"From what I learn, many mem
bers of the W. C. T. V., which se
cured the abolition of the canteen,
now believe that genuine temperance
would be promoted jw giving the sol
dier a mild beverage under circum
stances that will keep him away
from the stronger ones."

APPOINTMENT OF NEGRO * »
WILL H CRT LONG WORTH
President's Son-iu-Law Would Be
Defeated' in Next Election if
Ralph Kyle Gets Office
WASHINGTON, Feb. 11.—Presi
dent Roosevelt's desire to appoint a
negro federal officer in Cincinnati to
nay Senator Foraker for his fight on
the administration's course in the
Browirsville affair, threatens to cause
a serious difference in the Roosevelt
family. It involves the political for
tunes of Representative Longworth,
the president's son-in-law. It is free
ly predicted here that if the appoint
ment is made by the president it will
result in Longworth's certain defeat
two years from now.
Ralph Tyle, a prominent negro Re
publican of Columbus, Ohio, has been
picked by the president for the col
lectorship at Foraker's home city.
The job pays $5,000 a year and a
great row has been caused since the
news was sent to Cincinnati that a
negro was to be imported from Co
lumbus for the place.
The*resentment against such ac
tion by £*oe president is confined to
no porty lines, and in Representative
Longworth's district is especially bit
ter. The president's son-in-law
represents a part of the most aristo
cratic section of Cincinnati. That
element does not want a new collect
or of customs. Longworth has also
the largest negro vote of any district
in Ohio. These negro voters are also
up in arms because the president

number instead of importing a man j

case and similar criminal court pro

made "in the interest of the sancti
