Justice Gould yesterday Issued an or der citing Fred D. Owsley, of Chicago; the Congressional Cemetery, John T. Eamshaw. Its superintendent; J. E. Hutchinson, J. C Schrooder, and C W. Terry, committee of management of tho cemetery to show cause May 25 -"why they should be not be enjoined from re moving from the cemetery the remains of Marie M. Owsley until further notice of the court, and why they should not be enjoined from interfering with "William B. Boeing, Rudolph Ortmann, and Caro line Boeing Poole from removing those remains to Detroit. Mich., for interment. Boeing and Mrs. Poole are the only helrs-at-law and children of Marie M. owaiey, who died m Albemarle County. Va., December 10 last. Ortmann and Boeing are executors under thewill of Mrs. OWBiey. which provided for the erection of a mausoleum. In which should be interred -her remains, in her lifetime Mrs. Owsley turned orer te At her death, the remains were taken from her home In Albemarle County, Va., to the Congressional Cemetery In this city, where "tiiey are now deposited In a temporary vault. Boeing and Mrs. Poole, her only living children, are desirous of erecting in a Detroit cemetery a mausoleum in accord ance with the 'plans approved by their mother in her lifetime, but Fred D. Ows ley, of Chicago, her second husband, re fusee to consent to the removal of the remains to Detroit, and has Instructed the superintendent of the Congressional Cemetery and the committee of manage ment not to permit any one to remove the 'body of his wife, Owsley claims the right of possession nfi t ia rAmsln. The children claim -that their mother I never was a resldent'c-f.the District; that she hss no. relatives nuried here; that her girlhood -was spent In Detroit, where her parents, herV first husband, aad "W daughter are burled.' .-' . v- 7 -f' I There are no conditions in Washing ton sufficiently different from other cities to make cither impossible or imprac- i tlcable the proposed merger of the Board of Trade and the Chamber of Commerce. This is the opinion of James A. Mac Knight, of. Washington and Birming ham, Ala., who originated the Idea ana assisted in the work of a liko merger in his home city in Alabama, when the Commercial Club, Botrd of Trade, and Chamber of Commerce merged under the name of the Chamber of Commerce. MacKnlght was the originator of tho famous Vulcan statuo, sixty feet high, which was used as an advertisement of tho industries of Birmingham at tho fat. Louis exposition. He Is here now in an effort to Induce the National Art Com mission to Include in the Lincoln Me morial a Colossus of Lincoln In re-enforced concrete, 100 feet high. The mat ter Is now being considered by the com mission. "Conditions there were much the same as they are hero," said Mr. MacKnlght In discussing the affair. "The three or ganizations, of which tho Commercial Club was tho strongest and tho most in fluential, ajl protended to be fulfiling tho same mission In a lltle different way. "They were all doing the best they could; all working conscientiously to do the greatest good for tho greatest num ber, but tho divided effort precluded tho possibility of accomplishing the highest possible good. "After a strenuous campaign the amal gamation was effected in 1909, tho rapid growth of the Commercial Club and the spreading sentiment of the city in favor of such a mova finally whipping tho other two organizations into line. "The new chamber of commerce Is now housed in Its own building, erected at an expense of nearly J500.C0O. The combined membership Is about WOO. and this roster includes the names of tho leading business and professional men of tho city. "The Birmingham Chamber of Commerce, having for a nucleus the best elements of all threo organizations, is now one of tho most nowerful nnd progressive or ganizations in tho country to-day. "Perhaps tho most important outgrowin of the consolidation was the establish ment of the commission' form of govern ment by-which change the city has fceon placed on a substantial financial basis, and which permits tho administration of municipal affairs -at a saving of about 190,000 si year. , "There Is no reason why "Washington should not gain practically the same ad vantages by the same , methods. There Is no question but that a combined body will be able to get more and greater favors from Congress than -several small er organisations can expect to obtain. The added consideration from the Dis trict, committee would be one of tho greatest advantages of the proposed merger It Am believed the orcmasltlon frill either. do killed -or amroved at- the specldl meet. ST. of" .the Board of Trade la tho appointment of a committee of seven to deliberate in conjunction with a like committee of the Chamber of Commerce to consider the terms of the proposed merger. At a special meeting last week the Chamber of Commerco passed a liko resolution by a large majority, although more opposition developed than was at first ctpected. To-morrow night the membership of the Board will be given Its first oppor tunity to consider tho proposal. Several years ago, when the same agi tation was up, the Chamber took favor able action, but the Board of Trade killed tho proposal In the directorate, withholding It from the membership of the body.

Farmer In Letter Say Commission er Are "TlsrhtiTnds." The Commissioners hae received a wall from a Maryland farmer, Trancls S. McLeod, in which he refers to tllo Commissioners as "tightwads," and Col. Haskell, superintendent of weights and measures, as a tyrant. The complaint Is based principally upon the wagon tag law, which makes It necessary for busi ness wagons to carry licenses, costing fifty cents a year. Mr. McLeod claims the Commissioners had better look out. or the farmers will stop coming to Washington.
