Texas People Garlanded W. C. T. U.
National Delegates.
PROHIBITION BASIS OF UNION
This Condition Demanded by I. T.
Delegate* in Statehood Prop
osition to Oklahoma.
.
Special to The Journal.
Fort Worth, Tex., Nov. 26.— the conven
tion of the National W. C. T. 1., which has
just closed its session here, the admission of
Indian Territory, and Oklahoma into the
union as a single state came up. The dis
cussion revealed a difference of opinion. The
matter came up in connection with a motion
to have the superintendent of legislation, Mrs. i
Margaret Dye Ellis, call upon President Roose
velt in regard to the matter. The delegates
from Indian Territory were opposed to union
of the two unless Oklahoma territory put a
prohibition plank in its constitution. Mrs.
Stella Judkins, -wife of the governor of Okla
homa territory, pastor of a Quaker church
at Guthrie, O. T., was an active delegate of
the convention.
•Resolutions on. total abstinence, prohibi
tion, anti-canteen, Christian citizenship, an
archy, labor, the ballot, scientific temper
ance, instruction, purity and courtesies were
adopted. The press came in for a large share
of the latter, for it has been exceedingly
kind and helpful. When the local committee
on arrangements for the convention were
presented, the representatives of the press
were introduced also, and given the Chau
tauqua salute. One of them took occasion to
say that during the past fifteen years he had
reported many conventions, but In none had
the press been so well treated or had such
a good time as in this.
The presentation of flowers has been much
in evidence at this convention, from day to
day. Following the re-election of all the old
officials, each was presented with beautiful
bouquets of flowers. The resolution adopted
by the city council of Fort Worth last Fri
day evening to suppress the sale of cocaine
£<nd other narcotic drugs, also the plan to
establish a farm colony for the victims of
such drugs and drink, until they have re
covered, was commended by this convention
of good women.
State benefit night proved to be the most
remarkable of the convention. On this night
all states which have secured a net gain of
too members during the year are given a
[lace on the program. Massachusetts, New
Jersey, Kansas, Oklahoma, South Dakota!
Texas and Ohio were thus honored. The
church was crowded to its fullest capacity. ■
If it had been twice as large it would have
teen filled. From the many flowers used, a

It will entirely cure the worst forms of Female Complaints, all Ova
rian troubles, Inflammation and Uleeration, Falling and Displacement
of the Womb, and consequent Spinal Weakness, and is peculiarly
adapted to the Change of Life. r - ,' zz ■'.{*.: ?,-\
It has cured more cases of Backache and Leucorrhcea than any
other remedy the world has ever known. It is almost infallible in such
cases. ■ It dissolves and expels tumors from the Uterus in an early stage
of development, and checks any tendency to cancerous humors.
Irregular, Suppressed or Painful Menstruation, Weakness of the
Stomach, Indigestion, Bloating, Flooding, Nervous Prostration, Head
achejGeneral Debility quickly yields to it.
.Womb troubles, causing pain, weight, and backache, instantly re
lieved and permanently cured by its use. Under all circumstances it
acts in harmony with the laws that govern the female system, and is as
harmless as water.
It quickly removes that Bearing-down Feeling, extreme lassi
tude, don't care" and want-to-be-left-alone feeling, excitability,
irritability, nervousness, Dizziness, Faintness, sleeplessness, flatulency,
melancholy or the " blues," and backache. These axe sure indications
of Female Weakness, or some derangement of the Uterus, which this
medicine always cures.
Kidney Complaints and Backache of either sex the Vegetable
Compound always cures. • v;! i
No other female medicine in the world has received such
widespread and unqualified endorsement. No other medicine
lias such a record of cures of female troubles.
Those women who refuse to accept anything else are re
warded a hundred thousand times, for they get what they want
.—a cure. Sold by Druggists everywhere. Refuse all substitutes.
flower show -was suggested. Here roses and
other flowers are growing profusely in the
gardens, so it is possible to use them freely.
The pretty flowers, smiling faces, fine clotlies,
songs, patriotic music and encouraging words
spoken, proclaimed a Joyous occasion. The
audience accorded applause at the commence
ment of the program, but before the exercises
closed there were shouts and songs from all
over the house, with waving of handkerchiefs
and flags.
The South Dakota delegation appeared first
upon the platform. Mrs. Luella Ramsey,
the state president, recounted what the state
union had done. A song descriptive of South
Dakota and the" Black Hills was beautifully
sung.
It remained for Texas to make the greatest
sensation. Over one hundred Texas members
of the W. C. T. U. came forward, waving the
etars and stripes and lone star flag-. Mrs.
Stoddard, their talented president, spoke of
the greatness of the state, and closed by
saying: "We do not have to borrow a prima
duiiiia to sing for the Texas." When the
air of "Dixie" was played, the large chorus
sang the Texas song composed for the occa
sion. After singing two verses of words of
welcome, etc.. the chorus was:
We are glad you came to Texas,
Wp are, we are.
White ribbon band, from all the land,
We bid you joy in Texas.
The audience were not satisfied with one
rendition. It was repeated. The other dele
gations took it up, substituting "we" for
"you," accompanied by waving of handker
chiefs, clapping of hands and much applause
from all over the house. The banners award
ed were of white sik, having a large star on
them composed of many golden stars.
With a platform meeting that was equally
interesting, the convention closed a most
successful session. —Mary S. Whetstone.
WIHB LISTS ABOLISHED
One of the Courteous Aots by W. C.
T. I. Convention Hosts.
The Minnesota delegates to the National
W. C. T. U. convention, with a few excep
tions, have returned. Mrs. Bess!e Layths
Scovell, president of the Minnesota union,
was especially pleased with the welcome ac
corded to the convention and the way in
which the convention seemed to come la
touch with tha whole city. All classes of :
people interested themselves In the conven- I
tion and talked about it. The leading stores :
had their show windows decorated in the
white ribbon, and with W. C. T. V. portraits !
and the little white bow seemed to become a j
universal badge.
One incident struck all of the visitors who '
heard of it as a kind of courtesy only possible !
In the south. Wine is served practically j
everywhere that food is sold, and the first day
of the convention the card of a leading res- i
taurant had as usual its printed wine list.
The next day, however, the patrons found in
stead a mimeographed bill of fare from which
the wine list was absent. The first patron
who asked for a wine list was informed that,
owing to the fact that a great national tem
perance organization of women was holding
its session iv the city, as a matter of cour
tesy the proprietor had suspended serving
wine for the week. From all reports obtain
able, he adhered strictly to his chivalrous re
solve, to the compute astonishment of many
of his patrons. The patrons, however, were
not to be outdone id gallantry, and accepted

the situation without protest, although it was
certainly an unusual one.
The attendance of the public was so general
that over-flow meetings were held at nearly
every meeting. The ranchers took a deep in
terest in the meetings and attended with great
regularity, expressing the highest approval
of the way the convention was conducted.
All Fort Worth knew about the convention,
for every pulpit was filled by the delegates,
and the women spoke in every school of the
city. Mrs. Scovell and Miss Hollister, with
others, were sent to a colored school, and by
request Miss Ho'ilister made the beginning of
an organization of the Loyal Temperance Le-'
gioa which the principal intended to push
until all of his pupils should be enrolled un
der the triple pledge.
There were a number of colored delegates,
several of the colored state unions being rep
resented In executive meetings. This plan
of the W. C. T. U. of organizing two state
unions In sections where there is objection to
the mingling of whites and blacks, is a solu
tion that has averted all of the friction and
feeling which has been created by the same
question In the General Federation of Wo
men's Clubs. Able to control affairs at home,
the southern women make no objection to
mingling with the colored delegates in the
national body.
All of the old officers -were re-elected. Thi3
national convention is the twenty-sixth which
Mrs. L. M. N. Stevens, national president,
has attended. She has never missed one since
Miss Willard pinned the white ribbon on her
breast at Old Orchard. In all of her W. C.
T U. work, both in Maine and in the na
tional, Mrs. Stevens never missed an ap
pointments until this fall, when an illness
made the cancellation of some of her en
gagements a necessity. It was noted at the
convention that Mrs. Clara Hoffman, for nine
teen years president of the Missouri W. C. T.
IT., had declined re-election; she has been suc
ceeded by Mrs. Belle Kimball. Mrs. Louise
S. Rounds of Illinois has also retired from
the presidency of that state after fifteen years'
service and has been succeeded by Miss Marie
Bream, a national lecturer well known in
Minnesota, where she has done much work.
A change was made in the state constitution
by which the V branch and L. T. L. secreta
ries will hereafter be elected by the conven
tion, but this does not go into operation until
next year. Miss Louise E. Hollister, the Min
nesota L. T. L. superintendent, was elected a
national organizer and will do considerable
work outside of the state in the future, al
though she has been engaged for four months'
work in Minnesota during this year.
The next convention will meet in Portland,
Me. Full reports of the convention will be
given at the conference of unions, Dec. 3.
THE SECOND SONATA RECITAL
Miss Verna Golden, violinist, and Carlyle
Scott, pianist, gave the second of their series
of sonata recitals last evening at the Unitar
ian church. The audience was made up of
music lovers who appreciated the rare oppor
tunity of hearing performances of these
works. The works covered a century period
from Handel to Brahms and included Han
del's "A major sonata."
The program was a difficult one whose ex
ecution and interpretation gave evidence of
hard and careful work and marked musical
intelligence. Such programs are as profitable
to music students as they are rare and are
a delight to all of cultivated musical tastes.

TRIUMPH FOR NORDICA
PACKED THE CHICAGO AIDITORUM
Astonishes the Interviewers by Ad
mitting That She Has Coon
Song 1 in Repertory.
Manger Robert Scott, of the Metropol
itan, received this morning from Louden
Charlton, manager of Mme. Nordica, the
American diva, a telegram saying that
she appeared alone in Chicago last night
before an audience testing the utmost ca
pacity of the Auditorium. When Mme.
Nordica arrived in Chicago she astonished
the newspaper men who interviewed her
by declaring that she had a "coon song"
in her repertory. The Record-Herald
said: 0 '?■■
Nordica, the only American-born diva who
has won the pltMdits of all lands, arrived in
Chicago last night with the funniest, quaint
est, most outlandish thing in her repertory!
What do you think?
A coon song! Think of the Wagnerlan god
dess in a "coon song!"
. "Not ragtime," she explained through the
curtains of her boudoir. "I'm not yet ready
to discuss ragtime. But it is a negro melody.
And why not? Do you know who wrote it?
Nevin. Poor, dear, delightful Kevin. The
score was found in manuscript after he died.
The words are by Frank L. Stan ton.
; "For a song classic where in America could
you go beyond Nevin and Stanton. I am an
American. I believe in America. I know the
possibilities of poor Nevin. I see the poetry
of Stanton. I am proud to sing their joint
composition. 'Dearest Little Fellow.' That's
the name of it. And it is a 'dear little fellow'
of a song. I use it for an encore, but it wins
as few songs win.
The Nordica, with Loudon Charlton, her
manager, a maid and three servants made up
the party which occupied the private car
Brunnhilde. The diva slept in her car and
made it her home during her stop in Chicago.
It is her first American tour outside of grand
opera. This time she comes in song recital.
"How do I like it?" she repeated in answer
to a question. "Oh, I like it better than con
tinuous and we&ring grand opera. You know
I sang seventy-one performances for Grau on
my last American tour. Well, that was hard.
1 am booked for about eighty song recitals
this time, but they are not half so trying as
opera engagements."
Mme. Nordica will complete her American
engagements in time to appear at Covent
Garden for the coronation season in London.

Invited to Sioux City.
Special to The Journal.
Sioux City, lowa, Nov. 26.—The Sioux City
Trades Assembly and the Political Equality
i Club have decided to invite Miss Catherine
Goggin and Miss Margaret Haley, leaders of
the Chicago Teachers' Federation, to visit
and speak in Sioux City in the interest of
tax reform. It is an open secret here that
the wealthiest men and corporations pay al
most no taxes.
When the board of supervisors last summer
signed a contract with a tax ferret, th© rich
interests raised such- a hubbub that the board
annulled the contract. The Political Equality
Club, composed of the leading ladies of Sioux
City, and union labor intend to institute a
campaign of investigation through the young
ladies who were Instrumental in adding
$1,000,000 to Chicago's taxes.
