mXhe calendars of both the House and
Senate were swept clean of District ot
Columbia bills yesterday. Regarding the
former body, this did not mean a great

twelve District bills, reported favorably
from the committee heretofore, were
considered and passed, as follows:

The retail grocers of the District of
Columbia have decided to take advan
tage of what sentiment there Is In Con
gress favorable to the establishment of
a legal dny of rest in Washington. A
bill has been prepared for introduction
in the llcuse this week which will make
it unlawful to sell or purchase meats,
vegetables and other foodstuffs on Sun
day in the District of Columbia.
A committee of grocers visited the
Capitol vtterday and conferred with
Chairman Johnson of the District Com
mittee on the subject Representative
Johnson was noncommittal as to his
opinion of such a measure, and on the
ground that individual measures should
have their spongers in the House, he de
clined to Introduce it. He suggested that
the grocers place the bill in the hands
of a Congressman who would be willing
to urge its passage.
AstcvKinents for Opening Alleys.
Representative Henry George, jr a
member of the District Committee of
the House, introduced his first bill yes
terday. It related to the method of as
sessing benefits for th opening, exten
sion, widening, or straightening of al
loys and minor streets in the District.
Such action, the bill provided, should
be by a jurj, which body should assess
as benelits accruing from changes an
amount equal to the damages asascer
talned: $5 per day is Included In the
damages as the pay of the marshal, also
$3 a day for each of the jurors. It is
stipulated that in fixing the amount of
benefits to be assessed, the jury shall
consider the situation and topographic
conditions of the property affected.
KIglit Hours n Dit for Women.
A bill to regulate tho employment of
women In the District of Columbia was
Introduced yesterday by Representative'
Victor I.. Ilergcr, the Socialist member
of Congress. The measure proposes

cantile or manufacturing establishment
more than eight hours in any one day,
more than forty-eight hours in any one
week, or more than six dajs in one
week. Women are not to bo employed
before 7 in the morning nor after 10 in

It is the hope of Representative Her
ger that Congress will pass the bill and
that It will become a model for the
States in regulating the sweatshops of
the country.

Debate Has Been of Great Interest to Members of
Congress who' Are Lawyers.
In the House of Representatives for
the past week there has been in progress
a somewhat remarkable season of de
bate on the resolution to ratify the con

With the termination of debate to-day

come to an end what many lawyers of
the House have termed a genuine legal
feast. For the first time in the history
of the House there has been opportunity
for direct debate on the momentous ques

California, Washington, and other com

was again brought to life In the Sen
ate yesterday when Senator La Fol
lette presented his views as to why there
should be a reopening of the case and
an Investigation by an Independent com
mittee. The Senator did not conclude,
but announced his purpose to continue
his remarks to-day.
Before Senator La Follette had ap
peared on the floor of the Senate Sen
ator Dillingham, chairman of the Com
mittee on Privileges and Elections, of
fered a resolution, on behalf of his
committee, urging another Inquiry Into
tho Lorimer case. The resolution pro
vided for the investigation conducted by
the Privileges and Elections Committee.
This move was regarded as an effort
to forestall Senator La Follette, who
has pressed his resolution for a new In
quiry into the Lorimer case by a special
committee, whose members had nothing
to do with the previous inquiry, which
resulted In clearing Lorimer.
Iteicnlar Committee Fmon Lorimer.
The general Impression is that the
Dillingham resolution for a new inves
tigation will be supported generally by
the regular Republicans and old-line
Democrats, while tho progressive Dem
ocrats and Republicans will lino up sol
idly for the La Follette resolution for
an investigation by a special commit
tee. An effort was made to get all the
Democrats to support the Dillingham
resolution, but It failed and has been
abandoned. Senators Martlne. of New
Jersey, and Reed, of Missouri, along with
other new Democratic members, served
notice on Minority Leader Martin and
members of the Democratic steering
committee that they would never vote
to put the investigation of the Lorimer
case again In the hands of the Commit
tee on Privileges and Elections.
The committee, as reorganized, con
tains seven members of the committee
of the last session who reported in fa
vor, of clearing Lorimer These Sena
tors are Dillingham. Gamble, Heyburn,
Bradley, Paynter, Johnston, and La
Follette. Senators Bradley and Oliver,
who voted In the Senate to uphold Lori
mer's title to his seat, have been added
to tho new Committee on Privileges and
Elections, so that tho present commit
tee has nine membors who were record
ed In favor of Lorimer in the last ses
sion, as compared with six who cither
voted against him or are new members
of the Senate.
Issue Will Be Sqnnrely Met.
Senator Dillingham asked that his reso

table, but later he gave notice that he
would offer it as a substitute to the La
Follette resolution of Investigation. In
this way the issue over the manner of
tho investigation of the Lorimer caso will
be squarely met. Senator La Follette
made plain yesterday that ho will oppose

Knox Willing to Discuss Ar
bitration with All.
The German government has been in
formally advised by Secretary of State
Knox that tho United States is willing
to negotiate with Germany a general
arbitration treaty submitting all future
disputes to arbitration, which will be
similar to the conventions now being ar
ranged between the United States and
France and the United States and Great
Britain. There have, however, been no
diplomatic interchanges on the subject.
Several days ago a draft of a pro
posed convention of this character was
submitted to the Br'tish and French Am
bassadors here. The proposed draft,
however, has nbt been transmitted to
Germany. Secretary Knox takes the po
sition that while he is willing to nego
.tiate such a treaty with Germany ho
cannot properly make any definite pro
posals until the German government has
indicated Its willingness to take up the
subject. Mr. Knox, however, did go so
far as to suggest to the German gov
ernment that ie would be glad to dis
cuss the question if the officials of the
German government are willing to do
so. So far, however, no reply as to the
attitude of the German government has
been received.
There has been a change In the pro
gramme of the administration In nego
tiating these arbitration treaties. At
first Secretary Knox planned to arrange
a general arbitration convention be
tween the United States and Great Bri
tain, which would be made the basis,
when ratified by the Senate, for other
conventions of this character with dif
ferent foreign countries.
When-thls plan was announced there
was considerable discussion in Ameri
can and foreign newspapers as to
whether the proposed convention be
tween the United States and Great Bri
tain would not virtually amount to an
Anglo-American alliance. To demon
strate to tho world that the proposed
arrangement would not constitute an
alliance. Secretary Knox abandoned his
original plan and decided to negotiate
simultaneously a treaty with France
and a treaty with Great Britain. Ho
has probably spoken also to the diplo
matic representatives here of the gov
ernments with which the United States
now has arbitration treaties, to indicate
his willingness to negotiate general
arbitration treaties In their stead. So
far, however, no formal negotiations
havo been begun, except with Great
Britain and France.

"He really ought to be more usefully employed. He's apt to fall a
hundred miles should pinions break or bend, and while such things
amuse the crowd, they're serving no good end. Some day he'll
break his swanlike neck while painting cloudland red ; and if he's
useless when alive, he's more so when he's dead. I have no wish
to soar aloft and ride the sweeping gale ; I'll keep on raising prairie
hav, and sell it, bale by bale. The man who makes two bales of
hay come forth where one has grown contributes to the public

said, "will gather in more dough than you will get for all the hay
from here to Jericho. And though his airship often sails above a
field of wrecks, he entertains a jaded world a world of rubber
necks. Some people think," my neighbor said, "that no one's doing
good, unless he's growing bales of hay and other breakfast food ;
but any man who takes our thoughts away from toil and care con
tributes to the public good a large and handsome share."
