Disciple of Whistler Shows Roth Pnintinps and Sculpture. UP ti: ir. Pnlntlnes and sculpture by Henry Clews, Jr., have Just been plaeed on view nt tho eallery of Olmpel A Wilderieteln. and they are likely to puzzle some obfervers and Irritate others. Mr. Clews, It nppenrs from his picture-., has looked lone nd earnestly at the work of Whistler and he has alo sousht to ilepirt subjeets havlne a dash of soinethinc durliiK or advanced Jn his 6Cillpturo there U a de-Ire even more pronounced to excite curiosity or evoke the belief that revelations of prime Import are being brought forth, as when he places three bronze heads upon a slnslo bae, and calls them, respectively, Christ, Mardalen and Satan. Of course the visitor seeking for decora tive us distinct from Illustrative qualities will strive to dismiss from his perception for the moment the themes chosen by Mr Clews and to look rnther nt tho way In which form and color and design hnvo been used. The painting", ns you Inspect them further, throw you back upon what Whistler might have become had he suffered the misfortune of becoming both attenuated and vulgarized, It la hard to read much that can be taken as the personal expression of Mr, Clows Into such figures as those of the tall con jurer with the rabbit, the girl with a para sol or tho young person In the elevated skirt, whom he has catalogued as "Mls Deml vlerge " The one serious work a por trait of a mothor and baby dated six years ago und disclosing chlo handling and n dextrous brush. In the sculpture the cleverness of the modeller Is nioro apparent, though none the less marred by affectation. His heads of men and women and his studies of Im aginary imps and qualities sutler alike lrom what seimm an overweening declre to crcato effocts upon the unwary or Inexperienced observor. Without falling to notice Mr. Clews's occasional felicities of touch of or gesture, the visitor will nulto probably come awny with a leellnt that what he has been look in at does not ring true.

William II EnKllh, pre-ldnnt of tho club, acted as toastmaster Mr. Depew said: "With each recurrence of these anni versaries 1 am more lmprcscd with tho permanence of friendship Tho proof is here to-night. For twenty-two years the memUrs of this club In celebrating my birthday added to the pleasure of the first meeting un original compliment. In twenty-two years beveral Keneratluns of club members come nnd go. but there Is always a crutraj phnlanx of eterans to keep up principles and traditions of the otgunlzatlon. "Jn my fifty-seven years in public nnd semi-public life I have participated In many political revolutions, und In none of them have changes like tho tariff and income tax been received with so little excitement and scarcely a suggestion of passion. "Them nro no edltorlnls or flaming speeches predicting direful disasters, or indignation meetings re-solving that wo are on tho brink of financial and Indus trial ruin. Tlicso tariff ptoposltions going as they do to tho very foundation of our financial nnd Industrial systein, and tho manner In which they nro received, nro high Indications of that much abused word 'progress.' "The problem Is a difficult one. In simple form It Is how to rcduco the cost of living without Impairing the oppor tunities of earning n living. "Tho exemption of $1,000 n year In the present bill shows that these gentlemen control this legislation because very few In their States hu an Income of that size. It Is an Interesting question In legislation of this kind, since In no coun try In tho world where they have an In come tax is tho exemption equal to 11,000. "There never was u time when leaders asserted themselves with such confidence nnd nutocratlc nuthorlty. Moro than four millions of Republicans followed Col. Itooscvelt In tho last campaign because they believed In Hoosevelt and wanted for I'resldent of tho United States a strong, militant, aggressive and audacious leader. "The natlonnl convention of tho Demo cratic party nt Haltlmoro was swayed by Mr. Bryan. For ttio first time In U'3 years tho Tresldent of the United States leaves tho Hxecutlve Mansion and op pears at the Capitol to Impress upon the legislative branch of tho Government his vlows upon pending legislation."

With lit? mind orr fourth clius postmnHtors nnel his wenther oyo nxe-J on tho White Hons. Ilcprcscntotlvei Heflln of Alabama, one of tho silver tonRueel orators of tho House, lellvereil n tipi-oeh to-elay on the Underwood tariff bill. He e-alled on tho shades of Henry Clay, Thotna,s Jc-ffcrpon, Andrew .lack- son and II. O. Havemeyer to testify to tho virtues of thn mi-asuro. Ht de claimed atralnst tho money devil, bounced verbal rocks off tho hends of malefactors of great wealth, declureU that thu tariff barons wero knewklntr at tho doors of American homes and predicted that tho country waa nbout tei e-merso from tho "slough of desiond" Into tho "brltrht nunshlno of ft liapplor world." Mr. Heflln nrfrued that this transla tion was to bo Irrought about through tho benofleence of tho Democratic party. Thtnps were beBlnnlns to look up for tho American boy, nnd tho door of op portunity lonp locked nnd barred, was about to bo opened to him. "Tho veil has been rent In tho templo of hlKh protection," shouted Mr. Helltn as his colleaBues from the South ap plauded. "Tho trust magnates nnd tariff barons havo been located In tho templo of tho republic and Woodrow Wilson Is calling them to Judgment. "Whore, oh, where," exclaimed Hellln, "aro tho representatives of the sturdy stock who followed Jackson In his war against plutocracy when ho said, 'Tho cooplo shall rule'? Whuro aro tho de scendants of tho men who In other days glorllled tho doctrlno of Jefferson equal rights to all and special privileges to none?" Mr. Heflln paused that fomo one might Inform him as to the whereabout of theso persons, but no ono vouchsaf ing information on tho subject Mr. Heflln proceeded. Mr. Heflln insisted with a vehem ence that led to the Impression that soma one toad denied It that "the .strr ncth i f the republic Is In tho homes of th- people." "T.w m.t Important Institution In it country Is tho American home-," -j.l H-tl.n. "and the Democratic party ; re-jletered n vow that it will drive t.ils band of tariff marauders from the door of the American home. They are sowing pestllenco nnd want In the path of the American youth. "They arc breeding the poison of disease nnd bitterness along his way and by their cruel pillage and plunder nf the American homes they are matt ing an anarchist or socialist of him before ho reaches tho age of account ability." Mopping his brow impressively, tlerltn ereamed: "If tho republic Is to llvo this Con dition of things must change. This oppressive tnrlrf system of the Republi can party Is the deadly upas treo in the political life of America. Its roots are planted in the ruins of American com petition: its branches nre uplifted to n sky black with special privilege; its poisonous odors choke and stifle indi vidual enterprise nnd effort; Its deadly fruit is socialism nnd anarchy, distress nnd want." Republicans moved uneasily in their seats as the story of their political crimes was related wlfh dramntic fervor by Mr. Heflln. Again reverting to the American boy, Mr. Heflln. with hand uplifted, said: "The spirit of tho republic cries out: Ppnrr. oh pnre, that youth, Touch not lilt tnck nor brow; In tho futuro h. must rrovido for m. And I'll protoct him now. "You shall not surround this boy with gloom and despondency nnd shut out from his bright eyes tho blessed light of hope. You shall not barter his birth right to tho enemies of tho republic." At this point Hcreno layno of New York, who helped write tho present tariff law, rose laboriously from his seat, sighed so that ttio could bo heard In tho galler ies and waddled out of tho chamber, but the Southern orator went on, referring now to President Wilson: "Inhls hour of sore trial and oppres sion nmongst the people." nald he, "God has raised up a man like Aaron of old, who will stretch forth tho healing rod to glvo tho land deliverance."

Criticism was oproscl yesterday In tho financial elistrict or tho l'rawley bill just signe.1 by Gov. Sulzer, which In-cre-.T-es the interest paid on State bonds by nllowlng a credit of 'i of 1 per cent, to trust eomjanies, savings banks, Stato banks and insurance companies on tltn payment ef their f rauchiso t.ix As almost all Stato bonds are held by institutions the bill means that the State will lose of 1 per cent on Its bonds outstanding, which aro about W3,000, ooo. This loss to tho Stato during tho life of tho bonds will bo between $20,000, 000 and I'.'S.dOO.OOO. This method of inducing n market for Stnto bonds meets with a divided opinion among heads of institutions which hold the bonds. Tho weight of opinion, how ever, is expres-seel in condemnation of thie method ns futile so far as creating a market of broader proportions than a straight out increase in tho Interest rat- The Legislature now lias power to increaso tho interest rato if it wishes. This power did not e-xist when the eipe elient of remitting tho proportion of tho franchise tat of institutions was first udopte'.l three or femr years ago. Trust company oftlci'nt said yesterday that the indirect method of increasing tho Stato bond interest rate has no advantage except in trying to attaoh to State bonds tho prestigo of a high priced bond at a low interest rate, which in reality they do not possess. Hankers hero havo been sounded on tho possibilities for a new issue of from $30, ikmi.Oihi to Sin.OoQ.oio of State canal londs. Thev havo told State oflleials that in tho present state of the security market Stato bonds nt 4 per cent, which cannot bo issu.sl bflow par would go tagging Tho increase in the yield of the bond through tho Krawlev bill to a AVt per cent rate is slgnllicant of Steito preparation for new issues.
