Well, we had a great time over at
the Empire theatre this afternoon at
the opening of The Argus' free cook
ing school. Mrs. Siple is quite a wiz
ard in things culinary. It seems to
me, the nicest thing about Mrs. Siple
Is that she i-t decidedly practical. She
doesn't talk In terms which we common
every-day housewives could not under

fccnbe. Her talk fitted in well with the
menu she prepared which was as fol
After the lecture-demonstration was
over, one woman asked Mrs. Siple if
he was a suffraget, but Mrs. Siple
didn't seem to want to get into a polit

but one rt spet t and that is in regard
to the high cot of living. She said
that v. ith a rolling pin and kitchen

Dr. Pablo Deevernine y Galdos. the
new minister from Cuba to the United
States, has just arrived in Washing

close personal friend of the new
president of Cuba, Mr. Menocal. Th
new minister is no stranger to Wash

party of Cubans who were sent to the
United States by their government to

suffraget, which by the way, seemed
to me ns a very clever way of an
swering the question.
A remarkable thing about today's
menu was the manufacture of the lem
on cake which was of an extreme ricli
nature, but which was made without a
Ii;rti(le of butter. Mrs. Siple says
that sho is going to teach every women

There can be only one answer to tbat

duty which, the circumstances forbid
us to postpone. I Bhould be recreant
to my deepest convictions of public
obligation did I not press it upon you
with solemn and urgent insistence. .
PRINCIPLES ARE CLEAR.
"The principles upon which we
should act are also clear. The coun

this matter within the last few years
sees It more clearly now than it
ever 6aw it before much more clearly
than when the last legislative propos
als &a tLe gnhlpri were made. We
must have a currency, not rigid, as
now, but readily, elastically respon
sive to sound credit, the expanding
and contracting credits of everyday
transactions, the normal ebb and flow
of personal and corporate dealings.
Our banking laws must mobilie re
serves; must not permit the concentra
tion anywhere in a few hands of the
monetary resources of the country or
their use for speculative purposes in
such volume as to hinder or impede
or stand in the way of other more
legitimate, more fruitful uses. And
the control of the system of banking
and of issue which our new laws are
to set up must te public, not private,
must be vested In the government it
self, so that the banks may be the

I therefore appeal to you with confi
