Dr, Claxton Stands
for Equal Suffrage
"Though I am not tearing my shirt for
It I always have believed in equal suf
frage, and I believe that some day women
In all states wilt have the right to vote,"
said Dr. Claxton at the Rome. "It Is
not coming all at once, but tho history
of progress shows that these things do
come when thoy onco get a good start.
"I do not think that suffrage will cure
all evils, but it will do good. Its greatest
effect will be to Influence the home
keeping side of government. It will im
prove economic conditions in a largo
sense, making It possible to secure purer
food and more sanitary conditions. Tho
women are more Interested In these
things than the men, and they should
haveNi hand In the voting. I do not sco
apy good reason why any woman of In-
telllgenan and property should not have
equal rights with man."
Dr. Claxton is commissioner of the bu
reau of education at Washington. The
bureau has been In existence for about
fifty years and has done much toward
Improving methods of education. Special
attention Is paid by the bureau to give
tho rural schools what they deserve, as
more than W per cent of the children of
the I'nltcd States live In the country.
Employed In tho bureau are experts in
all branches of education. They travel
at homo and abroad tq secure data and
Information, all of which Is used to batter
tho Kchools in this country.
Dr. P. P. Claxton, United States com
missioner of education, will be the guest
of the University club at luncheon
this noon, at which tlmo ho will
sprak on some phase of the subject of
education. Dr. Claxton Is a graduate of
Johns Hopkins university and the Univer
sity of Tennessee nnd hua studied In dif
ferent European countries, and now holds
notable positions In tho cducatlonul
world. Tho luncheon will be for members
Weakening under the relentless fire of
questions of opposing counsel, C. W. Hull,
head of the C. V. Hull company, who
has been seeking to annul the divorce de
cree and $91,000 alimony contract of I1I1
former wife, now the wife of William R.
McKeen, Jr., head of the McICecn Motor
Car company, made overtures of peace
McKeen, Hull and attorneys on both
sides spent most of today dickering over
terms of settlement. The negotiations are
being carried on In secret, ana It was Im
possible for outside parties to learn what
proposal were being made and how far
apart the negotiators were.
Revelations of the contents of deposi
tions v. l.lcli have come during tho last
few days have had much to do with
bringing the Hull side to the point of
proposing compromise. Tho McKeen side
always has been ready to talk settlement.
When both sides several months ago be
gan taking depositions of witnesses In the
case it became apparent that each de
sired to "feel out" tho other and deter
mine in advance of actual trial Just how
strong the other side was. Only with
this purpose could many of the deposi
tions have been taken. Depositions can
be used in a trial only when the wit
nesses themselves cannot be produced.
In the Hull-McKeen case depositions of
Hull and several other persona who would
be certain to be In the city if the case
should come to trial have been taken.
The revelations of depositions on both
sides, on both direct and cross-examtna-
Ltlons, have been sufficient to make com
promise appear more and more desirable
to both Hull and tho McKeens.
An additional reason for Hull's disposi
tion to compromise and put an enu to
sensational disclosures is that ho is con
templating matrimony. This lias been', ah
open secret for months.
Borne sensational' depositions, whether
they are truo or not, have brought Into
the case names of half a dozen or more
prominent and wealthy citizens. Whether
the skeletons In tho closets of these are,
genuine skeletons or merely hove been
created by imaginative deponents, those
persons are not anxious to have them
exhibited in open court. It Is reported
thnt persons who have experienced fears
h(.e urged Mr. Hull to give up the flght
to break the contract to pay his former
wife $31,000 alimony,
The publicity bureau and committees In
chargo of the teachers' convention have
been greatly perturbed by a telegraphic
report from Lincoln, published in nn af
ternoon paper, announcing that W. J.
Bryan would go direct from Lincoln to
his "winter home In Florida. Bryan will
address the teachers at the Auditorium
Thursday night as was announced several
months ago. The report from Lincoln

Those who do their own
house work, board or
travel, yet wish to dress
always neat and in good taste,
find the famous Serpentine Crepe
a great boon. While the designs
are printed in a large variety of color
combinations, there are also twenty-six
plain shades that make most artistic, yet
inexpensive, house gowns, wrappers,
kimonos (long and short), dressing
sacques, shirtwaists, nightgowns, under
wear, children's and misses' dresses, etc.
The fact that Serpentine Crepe requires
no ironing, the labor of keeping Ser
pentine Crepe garments clean is only a
matter of washing.
garments save their wearers great laundry expense. You
can dress in excellent taste, have a large wardrobe with the
least expense and but little labor, if you select the genuine
Serpentine Crepe with the permanent crinkle.
The genuine ha? the words
imprinted on the selvage every yard. No other cotton crepe
is so satisfactory, so beautiful, nor wears, so long.
The Fall patterns of Serpentine Crepo are now on exhibition
in nil of Omaha's Department Stores. Ask to see them.
