This is particularly true when he uses soft, starchy foods, which K-ld<»in get the necessary digestion by the saliva, as nature intended. because most j>eople swallow such foods as quickly as possible. This leads to weakened digestive organs, fermentation, imperfect nutri tion, and sometimes appendicitis. Grape -Nuts must be chewed, and for this. as well as other reasons, this food has saved many from chronic intestinal troubles and all the misery that means. If there's one thing about Grape Xuts of greater interest than its scientific food qualities, it is its remarkable practical adapta bility to all weakened conditions of the digestive organs and its pom < '• to build them up quickly. ••There's a Reason*' Seventh 'lowa — Dcs Ms asa, March M Tenth North — stwiilllt.

Hartigan, recently elected a/delegate from t!>- Philippines to the R' publican National Convention in Chicago, on June 16. has left here for hi- home in Chicago. Mr. Hartigan expects to second the nomination of Sec retary Taft for President, in the name of Hie Phil ippine Islands. His selection Cor the honor i-< said to come from the Republican National Committee, at the request of Secretary Taft. Mr Hartigan was for many years superintendent of the city delivery department of the Chicago postofilce. and an officer in the national guard. He came to the Philippines as a. major in a volunteer regiment, and remained 'to take up the practice of law. He is the chief attorney for the Roman Cath olic Church in these islands, was principal inter mediary in the negotiations looking to the settle ment of the friar lands question and is a personal friend of Secretary Taft. ' PRESIDENT TO RECEIVE DELEGATES. Washington, March B.— Women representing near ly all the progressive nations of the world will assemble here to attend the international congress on the welfare of the child, under the auspices of the National Mothers' Congress. Subjects bearing on the great work of the congress will be discussed throughout the sessions, which will be held from March' lo to 17, inclusive. President Roosevelt will receive the delegates at the. White House on Tues day and will talk to them concerning child life. At least a dozen different nation-* will be represented. / /;. / /,' IRISH opposition. It Menace* Nctd Arbitration Treat]! xiith Great Britain. Washington. March B.— lrish opposition, which, it is asserted, defeated the arbitration treaty negoti ated by Secretary Gluey and Lord Pauncefote twelve years ago. now hm naces the new arbitration treaty which has been evolved by Secretary Root and Ambassador Bry<-e. Already the Btafa Depart ment has been drhigid with remonstrances and protests from Irish patriotic organizations, all directed «BHinst the n™ convention. Moreover, this opposition has developed before anything spe cific as to the nature and scops of the new treaty has be#ii made known officially. There ha? been nothing more than a reference to the subject in the British Parliament, and - me statements in ex planation based on that declaration in American newspapers. Bo protestants are in the singular position of directing their fire without knowledge that there Is any enemy, for it may be that th* new convention Is prawn upon lines that free it from the objection made •■■ the Olney-rauncefote convention. In that case ft was alleged that Amer ica stood in danger of losing territory as the result of an adverse arbitration. In th« present instance, while th* rule of the State Department prevents th publication of any details. It is the understand ing of the officials of the department that the sum pb.vction would not aVevaJL for the limitations an: so narrow that then is no danger that questions involving the. integrity of territory can ever be drawn into arbitration against the will of the American govemment. . The. protest? so far received at the Btat« Depart ment also show a lack of understanding of tho nature of the treary.whtcii -binds Great Britain and Japan. In tlie protests fear is expressed that Amer ica will find herself confronted by ■ combined Brit ish and Japanese fleet in the event of any serious issue aris-ing between the Ignited States and Japan. Indeed, some of the petitions quote from ■ speech by Sir "Wilfrid L LUX • the Canadian Premier, on January -■ last, c prophecy that such a combined fleet might some day be expected to drop anchor hi Vancouver Harbor. But as th« British-Japanese compact is understood at the State Department there is no obligation whatever on Great Britain to pnori her ally with arms except in the re. rro'» contingency that - third nation should under take to possess Itself of Japanese territory. EMMET MEMORIAL A TREATY PROTEST. The memory of Robert Emmet, the. Irish martyr. was commemorated last grhi at the Majestic The atre by a protest from fifteen hundred members of the Clan-na-Ga<:l of ■-■-■■ York against the pro posed arbitration treaty between this country and Great Britain.

[Prom Th» Tribune Bureau.] Washington, March S.— "Personally I would like to *P Senator Knox the Republican nominee. I be lieve he would make an ideal President. I have not before expressed this preference because I saw no end to be served by so doing, and now- I am not saying it for publication, because I am convinced that Taft will be the party nominee, and I am ad vising my friends to abandon a useless resistance and to get together to help Taft beat Bryan." This statement was made to a representative of The Tribune to-day by one of the most Influential and far seeing members of the Senate, a man whose name, if he would permit it to be used, would carry the greatest weight. '. As an anonymous statement it might not be worth publication were it not for the fact that It represents the view which Is steadily gaining ground among the politicians in the national capitaL The entire political situation, is carefully can vassed almost daily in the private offices of Sen ators and Representatives these days, and very gradually are they arriving at a consensus of opin ion. A few, of course, are so far committed to the candidacy of pome favorite son that they can see no one else and a few are so hostile to the Presi dent that the mere knowledge that he favors the candidacy of Secretary Taft affords them ample ground for intense opposition. The majority, however, outline the situation as indicated in this dispatch, and among that ma jority are many men who personally would prefer the nomination of some other candidate. Looking over the field, they say it is - now obvious that Taft will have something over four hundred votes on th" first ballot without counting any of the Southern states . except Maryland, Tennessee and Kentucky, which the political prophets think they can now divide among the candidates. The defeat of Taft car therefore be accom plished, they, say, only in one of two ways the combining of all the favorite eon delegations with the doubtful states on a single candidate or the •eating of only anti-Tart delegates from the South ern states. But. they ask. Is it possible to com bine the favorite son delegates on a. single candi date? And they answer no, for the reason that the delegations instructed for favorite sons will be. to use the inelegant expression of an antl-Taftite, "rotten with Taft sympathizers." For Instance, an they understand the situation, in Illinois there is a Taft sentiment so strong that only the most stren uous work on the part of Speaker Cannon's sup porters will secure for him a solid vote on the first ballot. Already three of the largest counties in the state have indorsed Taft. nrH this without «ny work on the part of the Taft organization. Sena tor Hopkins, who will be a delegate-at-lar~e. makes no secret of the fact that Taft Is his sec ond choice and that while he will be loyal to Can non as long as there seems to be any hope he will vote for Taft as soon as the delegation breaks. He will also t.ike a large following into the Taft camp, once the instructions are abandoned. it her can the Pennsylvania delegation, which is heart and soul In favor of the nomination of Knox. be. delivered en masse to any other candi date. It will stand by Knox until it abandons hope. but once it breaks fully half of the delegates, it is asserted, will vote, for Taft. many having said as much at the White House and elsewhere within the last month. The New York delegation, it is believed, will be loyal to Governor Hughes perhaps longer than that of any other favorite son. because it is the his tory of conventions that delegates stand longest by a candidate who seem? to have some chance of becoming the favorite of the convention, and there. hi reason to believe, that many of the New York delegates will regard their candidate as standing a good chance when the break comes. The Indiana delegation, the political observer? re ferred to say. is permeated with Taft sentiment. t-o much so that in Judge Crumpacker's district. the 10th. -re delegates could not be, elected until it was known that Taft was their second choice Wisconsin will prove an exception to the rule of ■ delegation's going for the strongest candidate. Senator La Follette will dominate his delegation, and it is his disposition never to give up a fight, so that ballot after ballot might be taken •without Wisconsin's voting for any but her favorite son. On the other hand. Mr. La Follette •will receive no votes from outside of his own state, and if the time come? when he releases his colleagues Sen ator S'eph<Mison and many others will cast their vote? for Taft. It is declared, therefore, by the political prophets in Wa^hingrton that there, is no hope of defeating Taft by combining the favorite, sen delegations on some other man. What of the other method, the seating of only anri-Taft delegates from the Southern States?, That, say the political eavanF, "will not do." It would be impossible, they believe, to elect a ran didate selected by such means. Republican poli ticians say the party would never attempt so dan *.-■ rous an experiment af the nomination of a Presi dential candidate by seating » sufficiently large number of contesting delegates, even if tnere was much to Ik said in favor of the contestant?.. In other words, the choice of the convention, they -.. neve, should be the choice of delegates from the Northern Slates, w*T?re there will be practically p.- contests. There are not a few reputedly shrewd observers who •v that the time will never come in the next convention when Instructed dt-legations will have I an opportunity to break to Taft. If the Secretary I of War is not nominated in the first day's ballot ing, they assert with gT-at posJtivenesß, there will I be v stampede for Roosevelt the minute the bal loting- begins on the second day. It is this ex ; pressed opinion which has given rise to recent i .... dipp.itrhes to the effect that the Presi ; ...-■• is acting with this end in view, or that be at least is not disposed to discourage it. Of course, th-re is no truth hi any such statements.

March B.— A reorganization of th« ! consular s«n-ice to rr-.ake it more useful to citizen.-" of the United States travelling or doing business . abroad, and more in accord with the necessities of ■ the government. is provided for in a bill which has been passed by the Senate. It was introduced by | Senator Cullom. of Illinois, chairman of the For- \ i i?n Relations Committee, and has the indorsement • of the President and the recommendation of Secre- ■ tary Root, who spoke in its support before tHe com- | mlttees on Foreign Affairs and Foreign Relations. | Chief among the changes provided is the closing j of twenty-eight consulates which are of little value | to the United States, and which only require appro- [ priations which roulrl better be utilized at other j places. Discussing the appropriations before the . House Committee, Secretary Root saM: I want the committee to consider the conditions .; under which our foreign service has existed and th<i ; ch.ms''- of conditions that has taken place within th« last few years. Prior to th" war with Spain I think the general estimate In this country of our i foreign service was that it was a a*eeasar] but | rather ornamental appendix to the government. We j had little trade; we had little money to invest out- I side our own country. Our foreign relations were not particularly important or critical. Now and ! then something came up. but as a Whole I think the ; general feeling was that while we had to have it. i of course still ii was not of much consequence. There has certainly been a very great change in the last ten years. The growth of the country, tn« ) growth of our foreign trade, th.: increase of travel, i the enormous increase of people of other countries : who are coming here and the increased power and j significance of the United States among other coun- ( tries of the earth all those have created an enor- . moos increa.se in our foreign relations. lam going to propose to you the abandonment of a number of | consulates and establishing some others^ abandon- j ing consulates where it seems to us the business does not justify them, and establishing a small number of consulates in places WBjere changes or j business makes them desirable. ; The changes suggested by Secretary Root were Incorporated in the bill introduced by Senator Tul lom. and Senator Lodge, reporting that bill to the S«nat r . said: During the last year and a half the conditions in a number of places where consular offices are now maintained have materially changed, 30 that some of the offices which were considered neces sary at that time have now ceased to be of any great importance' or use in the protection of Ameri can interests or in the furtherance of American ex port trade, while other places ha.v* increased to such importance, from the standpoint both O American trade and other interests, us to warrant the establishment of consular representation, In some cases it has been found that offices are not Jn the grade or class in which they properly be lonjj to secure th»- best advantage to the govern ment. I may also add that the change-, suggested are not made with any intention or desire to legis late out of office any of the incumbents of the consulates listed for closing. The new offices recommended, together «th the several existing vacancies.' will make, it possible to transfer these officers to other post*, and in many eases to pro mot- them to more important offices. In Mr. Lodge's report he gives the reasons for each, change and for the abolition of «-very con sular office. The consulate at Annalwrg. Germany, is recommended closed, for the reason that it ha- no direct trade with the United States and has only two. resident American?, and that at RHmberc. Germany, because, there are no resident Americans and no American capital. Besides there being no prospects of American trade at Cref»ld. Germany, the work of th» consulate could be much better done at Cologne, while the sam« condition pre vails at Pi.isseldorf. Freiburg, Olauehau. Mainz and Zittau. all in Germany. L.uc°rne Is also to b» dropped from th« list, for the reason that the consular duties consist mainly In taking acknowledgments of Invoice?. The fees collected there, last year amounted to only t*>43. while the office cost $5,053 44 to maintain. While in the tourist season numbers of Americans visit lu cerne, no hardship is expected to result from clos ing this office, as Berne and Zurich are only short distances away and In direct railway communica tion. In Ontario three consulates are. to be. abol ished— that at Belleville, where the office is Of little importance; at Port Hope, where there, is no opening for American trade, and at Port Rowan. where there are no American interests. Quebec will lose, four consulates in the, small towns of Coaticook. Gaspe.. St. Hyacinth*, and Three Rivers, all of these offices being: practically a dead loss to th« government. The cost to the jrnvfrnrnrnt of the consulate at St. Christopher. In the West Indies*. wa.« more than JC..VO last year, while the entire fees collected amounted to little more than J3of», and as there is little opportunity in that Island for work alonsr commercial lines the. office will be dropped. An isnia, in the "Weft Indies, will al«o bo eliminated, as no other country maintains ■<%, consulate ther°. Windsor. N. S. and Woodstock, N. B-. will al?o gro off the list, neither of these places s»«?min? to justify even a limited expense, and both beins: without any possibilities of American trade. The consulate at Jalapa, Mexico, will be removed to Vera Cruz, where, the business can ii» more easily attended to. -while that at i \iste;,aTnar«» di Stabta. Italy, will be transferred to Naples, sixteen mil** distant. The merely routine, duties at Catania. Italy, make it possible to eliminate that office, while th»< same reason applies to the abolition of the office at I'tila, Honduras. A? there is practi cally no opportunity for consular work looking to the extension of American trade in Madeira, the work of the consulate if practically nothine. anf\ ill* nfTW at Fnnchal will be closed under the pro visions .if the bill. The office at Port Stanley, in the Falkland Islands, is of bo little consequence to the service that its abolition is especially recom mended by the State Department The town has only POO inhabitants, and the entire, proup of islands only a few more than ;.nnn The desired location for this office is at Pnnta Arenas, in the Strait of Magellan, where American vessels and seamen often require th« aid of ■ consul. The last of the offices to 1«» closed is that at Jamestown, St. Helena, where th» consul is required to perform practically no services, and where only jis was collected in fees in ti !( - las: year. The T"mt«--i States is the only power retaining a consul there. and the closing of the office will not, it is stated. work any hardship to The interest.-; of the United State*. • In place of the offices r'osrd «ev*>nfen new -.■;. \ will be established, all in places where the ne cessities of American citizens and trade demand that some attention b# i>aid to American interests.

DEEPER CHANNEL NEEDED.-The joint army and navy board, composed of representatives of the corps of civil engineers of the navy and th rorps of engineers of the army. is about to con vene at San Francisco for the purfiM of ascer taining what is the trouble at the Mare Island <Cal.) Navy Yard. That place is destined to receive no more extensive appropriations from Congress unt.l the conditions of the approach to th« navy yard at that place are improved. For years the pror^. has been to keep the channel at a depth which will permit the passage of the largest ships of war and this IMS been done only at great expense and by constant dredging. Some two years ago Ciru Engineer H. H. Rosseau. now one of the Panama '•anal commissioners, while on duty at Mare Island in charge of public work., invented a W^—jJ scouring th» channel bottom so t*at the -tit which cam« down from the contributory rivers an! streams might he washed out to eea. It was thought that this would be sufficient. It has ap preciably improved the situation an I maintained ■ depth which could not otherwise have been sec, At the same time it has not effected a ll ■! ■■■*■« improvement. The special board which Is now d* tailed will seek to ascertain whether If is possible to effect any improvement which will be lasting. Considerable doubt Is expressed on this point, and the report from the board may have such a vital influence upon the case that the. Washington au thorities will feel they are justified in reeommeni- Ins ihts abandonment of a navy yard at Mar* Isl and and the establishment of a navy repair and construction plant at some other place in the neighborhood of San Francis, Th- Navy Depart ment officials appreciate that the n^stior, «* an important one to San Francisco, and the instruc tions to the board are that the greatest care shall be taken in arriving at-in opinion. The army offi cers serving on the board are the engineers who are In charge of river and harbor work tn >an Francisco. DEFECTS IN 12-INCH GUNS^ThfI ordnance experts of the army are mystified over the erratic Performances of. the two 12-inch gun, which form a part of the coast defence armament at tort »•*» roe Va. Boom weeks ago the* guns, with other rMes of the battery at that point, were tired under the observation of a board of artillerists, with a view to calibrating th" guns, something which had not been done and which was regarded a- neow *ary In order to determine the -ndtvidnal peculiari ties of every rifle. It has developed that each gun has Idiosyncrasies of its own. and that then are likely to be far from any characteristic which is prescribed by the rules of the theorist*. Everything went well with the armament at Fort Monroe with the exception of these two IT-inch rifle... and the artillerists who reported upon the incident suggest ed that then- were serious defects either in the guns themselves or it the complicated mechanism which is Involved in the disappearing type of gun car riage or in the powder which was used. In any «vent, the ordnance departrr.»nt was placed on the defensive. Tr- incident has attracted — at tention and has occasioned the ordnance officers considerable thought and anxiety. Two of the offi cer?, specially fitted to conduct the examination, were detailed to visit Fort Monroe and observe farther firings of these erratic guns. They have, spent two or three weeks OH this work without solving the mystery. It has now been decided to transfer to the army proving round at Sandy Hook, N J. the investigation, and a?* far *s may be the conditions existing in th- peculiar battery tit Fort Monroe will be reproduced at Sandy Hook. The, firings at the army proving ground will be under identical conditions as far as may be with the firings .it Fort Monroe. In this way the ordnance experts will be able to determine whether the fault Is in the powder or, as has now been ■osssstod, in some local defect of th" lot of projectiles which happened to >»• used in the two B-tach guns. Th* work of calibration will be continual to m clud» a".! the guns mounted at the coast fortifica tions of this country, and naturally there is much Interest to see whether there will be any furtfter disclosures which baffle the experts.
