London, Aug. 21. Early this week
at the foreign office and expressed to
minister, the regret of the American government that Ambassador Henry
L. Wilson should have made statements reflecting upon the British foreign
cmce. Ambassador Wilson said that a statement emanating from Grey to
the effect that Great Britain recognlzad Huerta because the ambassador's
ccurse had led h'.m to believe the United States would do likewise, was
pure subterfuge, unworthy of the British foreipn cmce."
tvtaentiy the statement of Ambassador Wilscn created a greater -flurry
in Washington than it did in London.

tary of the state board of health, in
testifying, before the special legisla

"Lack of surveilance by chaperons,
social ambitions of parents, late hours,
suggestive dances, immodest dresses,
automobile rides, telephones, stimu'.at
ing food and drink, and organizations
of boys to ostracize girls from society
who refuse to submit to their will are
6ome of the principal causes of tna
social evil among the better classes of
citizens of Wisconsin," said Dr. Har

The fact that here is presented, the largest assem
blage of new suits to be seen in the city at this advanced
period of the season speaks eloquently of the leader
ship of this store, and it is gratifying to note the imme
diate approval these new- models find with customers. A
More originality than usual has been shown by the design
ers of these new models and the cut of the coats and the
draping of the skirts are so varied that every woman may
easily find a suit that is becoming and to her liking. And
this feature is not confined to the higher priced novelties,
for in oar moderate priced suits the greatest variety is offered.
The largeness and completeness of this early showing
makes it one that will be thoroughly appreciated by wo
men who desire to select their suits immediately.

"It ia generally recognised," said
Dr. Harper, "that there is a general
wave of Immorality passing over the
country. It is due partly to our stan
dards of living and a deadening of the
moral sensibilities. We are living too
high, going too fast, and disregarding
the' balances which make for moder
ation and moral uplift'
Dr. Harper said that the reports
filed in his office by health officers of
cities, villages, and towns showed that
the number of illegitimate births was
growing at an alarming rate in this
state. The larger proportion of them
were among the middle and lower
classes, he said, but his experience
made him believe that immorality pre
vailed to as great an extent among
the higher classes, which, fearing pub
licity, could more successfully cover
It up. ,
"Take the situation among the stu
dents In the Madison high school a
year ago,' he said, "when the com
munity was astounded to find that
20 girls of respectable piarents
were guilty of indiscretions. It was
charged that a coterie of boys in the
school had banded together and os
tracized from the social life of the
school virtuous glris who would not
submit to their demands."
"What remedy can you suggest for
the suppression of Immorality?" ask
ed Chairman Howard Teasdale.
"I have found that communities hav
ing segregated vice districts under
strict regulation have the highest de
gree of morality," replied Dr. Har
"Doesn't a recognized vice district
require the abasement of a certain
per cent of women every year?" ask
ed Senator Victor Linley of Superior.
"That is true," Dr. Harper replied,
"but at least 1 per cent of the girls
will go wrong anyhow, it seems."
