clusive.
It is Intended at this congrests to
take up the subject of highway buibi
ing mere thoroughly than ha? ever
been do- "' this country.
From the attitude of the delegates and
visitors to the cons I >?S it- is apparent
that they are all enthusiasts, de

purposes of which is to frame a
definite legislative program to be sup?
ported Consistently in the future by all
of the societies allied with the con?

Another important feature of the
congress will be the conference of the
lrati ational institution?? t>f the

oughly and see if the various col?

impressive speech.
NEWslnoWs
AND HORSEMEN
MARINE, THF. SON O?" MARTA
SANTA AND LUTE. NOW A
PREMIER SIRE.
(By W. ?I. Carter.)
Writing from Otterburn, at Lorctto,
BSSSS county. Va., Mr. P. S. Hunter
says:
"I notice by the thoroughbred' rec?
ord that Marta Santa, the sire of my
horsc. Marine, is now the leading sire
of two-year-old winners in 1912. I
also note that a full brother of Ma?
rine, called Marta Luto, is lioing well
in England, having won a good race
there. Marta Lute was sold for ex?
port by Mr. H. T. Oxnard, of the Blue
Ridge Stuo. Roctortown, Va.
"Mr. C M. Ward, of your city, has
now at Otterburn the thoroughbred
mares, Mrs. Stuart, her daughter,
Aholn. by Aloha, and Lucy Ward, to
be bred to Marine. The 1912 crop of
foals by Marine are the largest and
most heavily made colts in general
conformation we have ever had at
Otterburn. The chestnut colt out of
Vicinity is especially fine.
"We are having quite a number of
inquiries for thoroughbreiis to be used
as hunters an?! saddle horses, nnil
have already made more sales than
for many months previous.
"The department ohb'f of Front
Royal (the United States cavalry re?
mount station) was coming to Otter?
burn to look up thoroughbred colts j
for the United States Government, but,
was detained by business, and when
he again proposed coming. I had to
write him that the well bred stock
in this vicinity was about sold out.
"It seems now most probable that
the invasion of the automobile, which
was thought to threaten the extinc?
tion of the horse interests, is devel?
oping useful and popular purposes
for machines, but proving unable to
supply the place of horses for the large
number of people who prefer the in
o'ependence and enjoyment of the use
of living animals to mere mechanical
locomotion. Like the wheel riding
fad', the auto has had its day, but
must always be of more generally
valuable capacity, because of its speed
and power.
"The really greatest setback to the
horse breeding interest is what Mr.
Allan Pinkerton. of New York, writes
me has killed the horse business in
that city, and that is the high cost of
keep.44
? ? ?
An exchange says:
"Congress has appropriated $50,000
?with which to start the experiment of
breeding horses for the United States
Army under the supervision of the
Department of Agriculture. The pro?
ject contemplates eventually the pur?
chase of fifteen saddle bred stallions,
ten Morgans, twenty-five trotters and
fifty runners, to be used in the stud
in various parts of the country. Mares
may be bred to these horses free of
charge, provided the owners give to
the War Department options on the
foals for three years at a price fixed
before the mares are bred. The
owner of the mare may, however, be
released from his agreement on pay?
ment by him of the regular stud' fee
of $25.
"Henry of Navarre and Octagon, tne
two stallions presented to the Oovern
ment last year, made the seasons of
1911 nnd 1912 on these terms at Front
Royal, Va., where more ^han 100
mares were bred to them, options be?
ing taken on the eolts at $150 each."
? ? a
Tho bay colt, foal of 1910, by Duke
of Kendal. dam Rlvanna, by Jim
Gray, has been registered in volume
11 of the Stud Rook, under the name
Duke of Rivanna. This colt was bred'
by David Dunlop in the ^oggin Hall
Stud, Gee, Va., from whom Rivanna.

chased the Goggin Hall estate and
most of the live stock on the place.
Later Mr. Endieott disposed of Gog

home at New Rrunswick, N. J. Duke
of Rivanna Is now owned jointly by
Mr. Endieott and Dr. E. L. Robinson,
of Petersburg, Va., in whose stable
the hay colt is now quartered. Dr.
Robinson, who is a skillful veterinary
surgeon and an able Judge of form,
thinks highly of Duke of Rivanna and

raced.

sories to murder, in connection With

Outside the FssatT county building
many guards were stationed, because of
rumors that members of the Indus?
trial Workers of the World, of which
organization Kttor and Giovannittl
were leaders, might attack the building
ami attempt to rescue the prisoners.
This is one of the most extraordinary
a in tin- annals of Massachusetts
b? cause of the character of th?- Indict?
ment, which charges complicity in the
murder of a woman during a strike
riot, to the leaders who preached a
strike.
All tiie forces of labor are lined up
against an interpretation of the law.
which makes that a strike leader can
be punished for all the excesses of his
followers, or even the actions of the
forces t)f the law during a riot or dis?
turbance.
The prosecution must prove that
Caruso was responsible for tin? death
of Mrs. Loplzzo. Then it must proceed
along ?liflVri-nt lines and prove that by
Incendiary speeches, inciting violence
Ettor and Giovannittl were accessories
befor?- the fact, even though they never
saw Mrs. LoplSSO or had any intention
of Injuring her.

Roosevelt, before an animated throng
that packed the auditorium. In the
Governor's former home town, where
he practiced law, and in the State
where Colonel Roosevelt's mother was
born, the ex-President passed the lie
to the Democratic candidate.
In the throng that beard Roosevelt
wet?- scores of Wilson shooters, who
tried to break up the meeting. At
one time, after an interruption, an
uproar ensued that verged as a riot.
The ex-1'r?silient went along all
right with his speech until he came
to bis personal allusion to Governor
Wilson. The moment he uttered the
Democratic candidate's name, there
were cries ?if "Wilson! Wilson!" The
Wilson sympathizers cheered luatllj
for a minut?', while Roosevelt stood'
with band upraised. When the Wil?

Roosevelt cried out: "I was about to
say that Mr. Wilstm has declared the

The crowd broke loose into catcalls
and hisses. Wilson men cheered un?
til they wer?? tired. Roosevelt had' to
wait live minutes before he could re?
ply.
Later on disturbers in the crowd
began yelling for Wilson again.
Roosevelt stopped, leaped to a table
and declared with grim determina?
tion, "Now, I'm not in a fancy fencing
match. I'm going to talk and' you
can decide after hearing me if you
want to believe in me. But you're
going to hear me."

After that there were no more ln

Speaking to the assemblage as
"Fellow Georgians," the ex-President
asked them to repudiate the Dem??

Wilson had nothing but a vague policy
to offer as a remedy for the existing
national evils. Roosevelt assailed
Wilspn for having, as he angrily
chargea', misrepresented the colonel in
