of the Governor's platform opposing

At was hut an opinion to say that the
'three men named had time to perform
the additional duties entailed in the

to go on the assumption that the de

Senator Cunn spoke in favor of re

ho did not want to Jeopardize this Im
portant department hy making it an
adjunct to other departments. He said
thai ho was convinced that Coventor

count of liis pre-election promise, if it

Senate that Wilson ?vas elected Pres

further, that the commission was a

was no less the voice of the people

yesterday stated the objection to the

1 After that a volley of amendments, ap
parently aimed at the vitals of tho bill,
came from all sources. Outside of the
committee amendment i and those of
the patron, only tl e two named struck
tho favor of the Senate.
Senator Andrew* argued that the
Coventor would not veto the Garrett
amendment, and said that his con
stituency wanted I lie bill and a real
live commission behind it. Senator
Garrett said that the Governor favored
the amendment. It passed hy one ma
jority. Then the .leffroys's amendment
passed, making tho required number of
employees eleven instead of eight.

Although tired out by ^Ihe all-day
grind and weakened by his recent
illness. Liiidnay Gordon made the most
vigorous fight against tho measure yet
; characterizing his efforts to guard

I Mr. Gordon said that at compound in
I terest the Stato would, at the end ol
| forty years, have paid the amount ol
I the principal of these bonds five times
| over, and would still be responsible fo;
the principal. Mr. Stephenson opposed
i it because he thought the Constitutor
? expressly stated that such bond issu<
i should not bo sanctioned. When told
by Mr. Willis that tho Attorney-Genera!
1 had decided that the measure was not
unconstitutional lie retorted that he
thought more of his oath to support
the Constitution than he did of any

Mr. Willis led the forces advocating
the hill. After many efforts by th<

it will pass the Senate, but in the

Here? was an instanco of the very

At this time there w ere few people

depots or offices for military purposes.
One tiling which struck me that day
was the total absence of dogs, \V> j|,
Holland are particularly fond of dogs,
which are most useful animals-, and I
commented upon their absence to a '
man with whom I got Into conversa- j

a knowing smile: "dogs are needed at

has been found that women have been

The head of the women spies, osten

ctcvcrl/ frustrate*! a plot to hand over
to one of the enemy powers u very
vital manufacturing secret.
By means of their very thorough
methods of espionage, it was learned
that one of tho hem I chemists was
negotiating with an enemy agent?a
woman?and that a rendezvous had
been fixed at a danoo house. The place
was. no doubt. chosen because of its
public character, and because a meet
ing there was not at all likely to
arouse suspicion.
Madame N'ebrikoff. with her wide ex
pericnco and training, quickly saw her
ch.ince of bringing ofT the coup, when
site learned that tho chemist had never
met the ngcr.t with whom sho was
negotiating. Keen for the credit of
li^r own corps, sho did not seek tho
assistance of the male spies. She had
absolute confidence In her power to
disguise herself, in the art of which
.vhe was a master, and proceeded her
self to play the role of the chemist.
As Ilerr Vout, tho chemist, was leav
ing the laboratory on the night of the
rendezvous, he was seized and placed
utidor arrest. In his stead Madame
Xebrikoff turned up at the dance, ana
by means of tho agreed sign, which
she had learned, introduced herself to
the foreign agent. Of course, they
danced together, and. while they were
waltzing, they discussed freely and in
low tones the proposed treacherous
dea I.
After tho waltz the supposed
"chemist" led his partner to a secluded
alcove, where, over refreshments, they
lixed the terms. The secret was to be
sold to the foreign power for ?50.000.
Protending that everything was to his
satisfaction, the "chemist" invited the
unsuspecting agent into a private
room, which he had arranged should
bo placed at "his" disposal, where the
secret could he handed over.
In this rooin Madame NehrlkolT
handed to the woman agent the docu
ment which had been taken from the
treacherous chemist, and. in return, re
ceived au acknowledgment from the
agent, and the agreement to pay into
a neutral bank tho sum of money
specified. The coup was complete.
No sooner had the document changed
hands than tho room was filled witn
detectivcs. and tho foreign agent placed
under arrest. N'oxt day she arr! tne

F. A. Barber Tells How He Finally Found Remedy That

"I dislike publicity, but gladly give

a well-known conductor on the Now
