Question of Veracity
Raised on Floor of
Women's Convention
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. t3.-Splrited
discussion over the transfer of Maud
Wood Parks' credentials from tho Col
lego Equal Suffrngo leaguo to tho Mas
sachusetts delegation drifted danger
ously close to n question of veracity at
the suffrage convention today. Finally
M. Carey Thomas of Uryn Mawr, presi
dent of tho collcgo league, got the floor
to make an explanation.
"Ladies." she said, shaking her finger
at tho delegates, "I always tell tho truth.
If I did not tell tho truth, I would have
no right to be here."
Thero was a stir, but It quickly sub
snded. After Hiss Thomas had made her ex
planation tho matter was referred back
to the credentials commltteo for further
action and the convention took up other
things pertaining to the election of of
ficers. Tho question of changing the represen
tation and tho per capita tnx to tho na
tional organization came up for a brief
discussion at the opening of tho session.
It had been proposed to amend the con
stitution so aa to change tho representa
tion with a view of Increasing tho na
tional fund of the association. Betoro thy
discussion camo to an end, however, tho
regular business of the day was called
fjur and tho proposed changes were laid
aside for tho present.
Among tho messages of greeting re
ceived during tho day was one from Ore
gon, which waa generously applauded. It
was a telegram from tho suffragists of
the stato who reported that a count of
the voto on tho oqual suffragists' amend
ment In Oregon showed that It had car
ried by a majority of 4.101.
Dr. Anna Howard Shaw was this after
noon re-elected president of tho National
American Wuman Suffrango association.
Tho voto was: Dr'Sljaw, 291; Laura Clay,
Kentucky, 20r, Catherine. W. McCullough,
Illinois, 13; Jane Addams, Chicago, 11. The
ro-electhn of Dr. Shaw was made unani
mous. Jano Adtjtuns. of Chicago was unani
mously re-elected first vice president.
Chinese Recapture
' Town in Mongolia
After Hard Fight
CHICAGO, Nov. 25 The Chlneso gov
ernment troops under Prince Pohtl, a
loyal Mongolian, captured tho city of
Ullassutal, Mongolia, after a two days'
buttle, according to a Peking dispatch to
the Chicago Dally News today. Mongolian
seceders have installed Russian telegraph
operators on government lines they seized
and detcachmenta of Russian troops arc
advancing from various stations toward
TJrgatho capital, and .western Mongolia.
'Tho News c'ablo said: "The War office
today made public a copy of a telegram
from tho loyal Mongol general. Prlnco
P6h'tirsaW;'that' T,Tlta5sUta Mongolia,
had Been captured by the chlneso ox"po-
dltlon under his command. The flrpt Chi
nese attack was repulsed and Prince
Pohtl awaited reinforcements, which ar
rived November 16 from Slnklang and
Shan provincco. After" allowing the rein
forcements to rest two days ho divided
the forces and ordered Slnklang troops
to attack from the west and tho Shanl
troops from the south, while he himself
attacked from tho north. After a battlo
lasting two days the Chlneso were vic
torious, tho Mongolian general being put
to flight.
"According to a telegram from Klklana,
a city on the Russian side of tho northern
frontier of Mongolia, tho Mongols recently
seized the Chlneso government telegraph
office at Malmachen, Mongolia, threw out
tho Chlneso operators and Installed Rus
sians.
"The Russians aro sending detachments
from various military stations 'toward
Urga and western Mongolia, with tho
avowed object of protecting tho lives and
property of Russian subjects. It Is be
lieved, however, --to be a counter movo
to the Chlneso military operations In
upper Mongolia.
Gall Money Rises
to Twelve Per Cent
on Wall Street
NEW YORK. Nov. 23.-A flurry In tho
money market today sent the rate for call
loans up to 12 per cent, the highest figure
since tho early part of 1910. The opening
rate wau 6 per cent and that was tho
prevailing figure during tho morning.
Later in tho day, however, the rato rose
rapidly until 12 per cent was reached, fol
lowing which . there was un easier
tendency.
Calling in of loans by two of the princi
pal banks waa said to be the Immediate
cause of the flurry. It was understood
also that somo out-of-town banks were
withdrawing deposits here. Increased
mercantile demands for money, disturbed
political conditions abroad and prepara
tions for the year-end disbursements of
interest and dividends wero cited as un
derlying causes of tho condition In tho
money market.
Tho advanco In rates led to liquidation
of speculative holdings of stocks nnd
prices were depressed tmarply on the ex
change. Dairymen Postpone
Advance in Prices
Dairymen will postpone the proponed
Increase in tho rrice of milk from 7
to 9 cents per quart until Dairy Inspec
tor Bessie and Health Commissioner Cou
ncil have drafted a new ordinance regu
lating the dairy Industry. This seems
to be the concensus of opinion among the
dairymen, who have met frequently to
discuss the proposed Increase, to have
i
?one into effect December 1.
This new ordinance wil make moro
stringent the already stringent regula
tions, of dairies. It will Increase the One
for adulteration of milk from 10 lo

licenses be permanently revoked. "

tho Kountzo financial Interest of Omaha
and New York.
All ,of the contestants aro thus given
an opportunity to serve Omaha, Lincoln,
South) Omaha, Fremont and other cities
In the eastern part of the state with
current. The first award to the Bub
cock interests is regarded as a victory
for that syndicate. The board of Irri-
gatlon paid but little attention to the
requests of private individuals asking
that water rights bo not granted until
the legislature had had an opportunity
to express an opinion In tho matter.
V. E. Sharp this afternoon, talking for
tho Commonwealth company, said ho1 did
not regard tho decision as adverse to
his interests at all, although ho expected

Illinois Democrats
Will Try Roosevelt
Methods on Moosers
CHICAGO, Nov. S.-By invoking Col
onel Roosevelt's theory that contested
delegates should not voto on their own
contests, democratic lenders hope. It was
learned today, to keep progressive party
members of the new Illinois legislature
from participating in its organization.
By debarring tho fifty or twenty mem
bers whoso seats are contested, tho demo
crats, who' now lack two of a majority,
could proceed to organize, they say under
the constitutional provision that "a ma
jority of tho members elected to each
house nhnll constitute a quorum." A
! quorum voting may organize tho houso
by a majority vote of such quorum, it is
contonded. ,
As a final basis for their arguments,
the democrats point to the following
clause, of tho rontltutlon:
"Each house shall determine tho rulea
of lu proceedings and be the Judge of tho
election returns and the qualifications of
Its members." v

fiotulor Raynor had been lu n cnmnluso

or two slight rallies. His sevclo Illness
covered a period of nbout six weeks, dat

l duns conipclled him to re tiro fiom tho
campaign at unco after tlutt, and he re
turned to his Washington home, where
ho died at 6: o'clock this morning.
For over five years Senator Rayner had
been a sufferer from neuritis, tho attacks'
often making his work arduous ami pain
ful. Ills death creates a vacancy In tho
Minnlo thnt probably will be filled by a
republican, through appointment by Gov
ernor Golilsborough of Maryland. While
Ih'i legislature of that stato Is democratic,
It does not meet this winter, nnd he re

In January, 1914. Henator Ilaynei's death
removes one of the democrats on whom
The control of the senate depended lu the

upon us sufficient strength to secure, con
trol. Whllo the democrats havo on apparent
strength ot forty-eight, thu death of the
Maryland senator reduces the supposed
majority to a point very near the divid

Senator Rayner's lllnoKH from neurltlH
covers a period of noarly flvo woeka.
Complications began about six weeks ago
and his serious Illness dates from thut
time. He attempted to enter actively into
the democratic campaign nnd met llourko
