Suffragists Hold Jubilee; Members of Congress Guests Mrs. Catt Heads Reception to Friends of Cause; Ratiflcation Messages Sent by Western Statee New York Tribune Waihinglon Bureau WASHINGTON, June 10.?There never was such a signiflcant jubilee suffrage celebration as that held here to-night at the historic Suffrage House on Rhode Island Avenue. Senators ! and Representatives, new and old, | women and girls who had dreamed of ; just this moment and many other friends of the movement to enfran ehise women walked up the stairway of the headquarters to congratulate the executivea of tho national Ameri? can Woman Suffrage Association upon Ihe triumph of Susan B. Anthony's cause last week. The affair was arranged as a trib? ute to the members of Congress who made the fight a victory. But the re? ception became a jubilee for every body. The receiving body, heuded by Mrs. Carrie Cnapman Catt, national president, an* made up of the Congres sional committee, shared honors with the official guests. Mrs. Maud Wood Park, chairman of the Congressional committee, which conducted all the amendment campaigns, stood beside Mrs. Helen Gardener, vice-chairman; Miss Marjorie Shuler, the publicity di? rector; Mrs. Minnie Fisher Cunning ham, formerly president of the Texas branch, and Miss Caroline Reily, secre? taries, and Miss Mabel Willard, direc? tor of? social activities for the com? mittee. Thanked by Mrs. Catt Mrs. Park presided over an infor mal programme at 9 o'clock. This con sisted mainly of Mrs. Catt's address of thanks to the Congressional guests and a plea to them for support in the fight to ratify the amendment. An nouncement that Illinois was the tirst state to ratify the amendment gave a further jubilee atmosphere to the crowded rooms. At the headquarters of the National Woman's party it was declared that no picketing would be necessary in the states where the ratiflcation would be asked. State headquarters are to be come the most active parts of the Woman's party in the future, it was said, and, although this rlecentraliza tion would follow now that the ratifl? cation must be made in the states, the national headquarters in Washington will remain open. Get Ratiflcation Word Ratiflcation telegrams from Wiscon sin and Illinois were received thia morning within thirty minutes of each other at the headquarters of the Na? tional Woman's party. The messages were sent by the state chairmen, who have maintained head? quarters in the capitals of their states since the passage of the amendment by the lower House of Congress. Mis3 Ada N. James, of Wisconsin, wired: "Ratified this morning. Give us a star quick." The Illinois telegram was signed by Ella Abeel, advisory council, and Lucy Ewing, press chairman; Mrs. Adeline Atwater, Mrs. L. M. Cooper and Mrs. Susan Lawrence, members of the state executive committee, and stated: "Legislature ratified amendment 10:30 this morning. Senate unanimous; House by vote of 132 to 3." Because of the experience in the rati? flcation of the prohibition amendment when a slight change in the wording of the amendment caused the nullification of the ratifying vote in one state, word has been sent from the Woman's party headquarters to all state chairmen ask ing them to follow the amendment closely from the time of its introduc tion through committee reports, the vote, to the printers and cngravers, making sure that not a comma varies from the original draft. A gold and a purple star will be placed on the Woman's party banner in honor of the first two states to ratify. Mrs, James Lees Laidlaw Terms Action Magnificent Says Governor's Call Is in the Same Spirit as Great Victory Men of State Gave in 1917 "It is a magnificent example to set the rest of the country," said Mrs. James Lees Laidlaw, chairman of the New York State League of Women Voters, when told last night that Gov? ernor Smith had called a special ses? sion of the Legislature to ratify the Federal amendment. "Governor Smith's action is in the same spirit as the great victory which the men of New York gave us in 1917; it took a great many years of hard work on our part to convert our men, bat now that they have come over to our side, there is nothing half way about New York." According to a poll of the Legisla? ture taken by Suffragists last spring, when there was hope that the Federal amendment would be passed before ad journment, there probably will be only one vote against ratiflcation in the Senate, and two fn the Assembly.

With her hands tied behin her back and her leather belt tightly tied about her neck, the body of a young woman about twenty-five years old was found to-night in a lonely part of Lalor Farm, adjoining St. Mary's Cemetery, on the outskirts of the city. The police and County Physician Scammell believe the young woman was lured to the spot, attacked and then killed. She had been dead less than twenty-four hours, according to the country physician. She had been strangled to death, in his opinion. The only clew the police have to work on so far is the name "Mrs. T. Sabo." This was written upon a re ceipt found in the purse of the woman lying near the spot where the body was foun. The initials "T. J.," as near as the police can make out, are also signed to the receipt. The woman wore an orange-colored sweater and dark clothing, silk stock mgs and black ties with nikel buckles. The police believe she may have been employed in an office or a store, as ! her hands indicated she did not do | manual labor. The police found fiingerprints and | scratches on the throat and neck of I the woman, and they also found a red handkerchief under the belt tied about the neck. A man's handkerchief had been used to tie the hands of the woman behind her back. I-* Boston Goes "Dry" During "Wets" Protest Saloonmen Close Places to At tend Anti-Prohibition Meet? ing; 8,000 Present BOSTON, June 10.?This city was "bone dry" last night, every saloon kceper closing his establishment while he attended the mass meeting in pro- ' test against prohibition held at the Mechanics' Building. Eight thousand jammed into the hall and 5,000 re- i mained outside, unable to enter. The action of the saloon men in : closing their places was done to show ! "what. prohibition was like. Represen- : tatives James A. Gallivan and John F. Fitzgerald, State Senator George Cur ran, William H. Shea and C. A. Windle, i editor of the "Iconoclast," were the principal speakers. During the meeting, William B. Smith, a prohibitionist, was given the platform, but he had barely quoted a pa3sage from the Bible when the crowd began hooting and howling, and he withdrew. Mr. Windle, the principal speaker, said that "if prohibition is right, Americans should have a chance to vote j upon it." He declared that "temper ance is a virtue, but prohibition is a, politieal policy born in hysteria." Buvs Alhany Brewery h To Make 2.75% Beer ' NEWARK, N.

Bames Says Grain Men Must Continue Their War Service Control of Wheat Prices Will Last Another Year, Federal Director Says in Conference Held Here That the world Is still dependent ou ; America's aid was the keynote aounded : yesterday by J-ulius H. Barnes, Fed? eral wheat director, in opening a con? ference in the Chamber of Commerce i with representives of the grain han dling and flour trades from all parts of ! the country. The purpose of the con : ference, which will continue to-day, is ! to consider plans and policies neces j sary to make the 1919 government crop ; guarantee effective to the producer and : to refiect to the consumer, through . wheat products, any reduction by the government in the resale price of | wheat. The discussion yesterday cov | ered the authority and obligations of ? the wheat director, licenses, the ad j visability of the addition of premiums I to terminal price3 and railroad prob ; lems. In picturing the duties and oppor ; tunities for service which have fallen ; to the United States through the ex ;haustion of large parts of the world j Mr. Barnes said: 1 "The war has been won, but beeause of peculiar circumstances the grain trade must continue its war service for still another year. To accept that , control and that sacrifice without re sentment and opposition one must get the conception of a world still de? pendent on America's aid, of the neces sity and opportunity for America to be the 'big brother' of a distracted world, strorig, resourceful and gener ous." Discussing the government's guaran teed price on wheat and the food re quirements of Europe, Mr. Barnes said: "The only substitute that can be considered for this fair price expressed in the national guarantee is that of a price made by the play of supply and demand influences. Supply and de? mand to-day are not free to exercise their customary pressure. The wheat ; crop of the world is largely an over Beas food movement, and ocean trans portation is still restricted and diffi- j cult. The overseas commerce depends for its very life on the play of inter national finance and exchange, and '?? these to-day are most difficult and often broken. "It seems quite possible that there will fall upon America an overseas demand for 410,000,000 to 460,000,000 bushels. The largest previous export movement of wheat and flour from America was in the crop year of 1914 1915. amounting to 332,000,000 bushels. "Our crop of wheat fortunately promises to yield between 1,100,000,000 ind 1,200,000,000 bushels. * ;, "Our home consumption for bread ind seed may be roughly calculated it 600,000,000 bushels. "Starting the crop year with no re- \ ;erves or carryover from the crop just inished, we are called upon'to export ;xceeding 400,000,000 bushels. It eave3 us only the promise of such idequate reserves as a great consum ng country should carry from one :rop to another." j j ?-? lealer Hickson's Time Full i, ippointmente Will Occupy Rest of His Time in City James Moore Hickson, the healer, /ho has been treating the afflicted by he laying on of hands at Trinity lhapel, announced last night that he fould be unable to take any more pa ients.

Electric M odern Impfovemenfe yotir Proj&riy u l.ii'Jltlr/iiiiiiiiuii 75^00 Aporimenis for .YOUR Tenants THE Department of Labor estimates that 75,000 apart ments will have to be built before New York's housing condi tions return to normal. Today even the most out of date and un improved dwellings are occupied ?occupied by people who can find nowhere else to live. But Manhattan's shifting pop ulation is soon to undergo its greatest upheaval ? the era of moving days ushered in by the erection of these 75,000 apart ments. The first to kiove will be tfie tenants of old, unimproved buildings. To insure themselves against a return to the old days when un? improved dwelling places went begging for tenants, farsighted landlords are now making their properties more desirable as living places. Electric service is the first im provement installed. Nothing else can add like comfort to the home. Without it families are deprived of such necessities as electric irons, fans, cooking de vices and vacuum cleaners. Apartment halls are vastly im proved by electric service. Uni form light, convenience of control, the elimination of bell-ringing and door-openingbatteriesandthesub stitution therefor of small trans formers operated from the lighting circuit, are some of its advantages. A postal-card or telephone re? quest (Stuyvesant 4980) will bring our representative to you. He will tell you how inexpensively and easily your property can be electrified. And if the investment involves a gneater immediate ex penditure than is convenient, we may be able to arrange terms. ^JJNITED EUECTRIC IIGHT & POWER COMR&OT 130 CA?i 15?b. Si*e??, ^wt?S?.
