Armstrong and British Squadron. CAPT. REED IS PRAISED American Pnnteer Thought to Hare Prevented Re-enforceButs from Ruchiag New Orkuu. Rear Admiral Colby M. Chester last night told the story of what be regarded as one of the most glorious events in the annals of the American navy. The fight of the American prhateer. Gen. Arm strong, commanded by Samuel Chester Reed, the last naval engagement of the war of 1SI2, was the subject of the ad miral's remarks at the regular meeting of the District of Columbia Society of the Sons of the American Revolution at Rauscher's. Although little of this wonderful naval engagement in the harbor of Faal, off the Azores, is generally known, tbe in domitable spirit of the gallant command er and his little crew in the face 'of terri ble odds made Gen. Jackson's victory at New Orleans Dosslble, said the admiral. The UttlaAmerican privateer delayed the attacking British squadron, with Its 2.000 re-enforcements for New Orleans, until iuo iaie. Admiral Chester said that the engage ment between the American privateer, with Its complement of some ninety men. and the attacking British squadron of jour sioops-or-war. carrying 1.000 men to am .British operations against New Orleans, was the most brilliant naval dul of our history. Capt Reed fought his little band In defense of the Gen Arm- strong until literally crushed by the su perior force of the enemy. He then or dered his ship scuttled, and, although In a neutral harbor, found It necessary to shut himself and command In an old castle on the island in order to defend the liberty of himself and men. Admiral Chester closed with the expressed wish that the story of this brilliant sea fight might be more often told to tho chil dren of the country. Col. Gilbert C. Kniffen. president of the society, presided for the first time since his election at last night's meet ing. Several musical numbers preceded Rear Admiral Chester's address. At the conclusion of the meeting a buffet lunch con was served. The following as prasent at the meeting- CoL Gilbert C. Kniffen, president of the society; Admiral Chester, Albert J. Gore. Horace M.

Protectors of Country's Resources Are Favorable to Washington as Convention City. Washington probably will be the meet ing place of the National Conservation Congress. This was stated last night when members of the executive commit tee had ended a visit to the White House and had conferences with Thomas Grant. Granville M. Hunt, and J. F. Slaven. representing the Washington Chamber of Commerce, who showed the sltors the advantages Washington has for enter taining contentions. Members of the executive committee of the National Conservatron Congress called on President TMlson to tell him that this organization Is strictly non political, and that It has no candidates for office. They assured Mr. Wilson that they had no .axes to gnnd, other than to Insist upon the conservation of the natural resources of the country. It was pointed out that the congress has no wish to "build a fence around" the coun try's resources, and that a reasonable and wise conservation Is all that It ad vocates. The delegation was assured of a friendly reception by the numerous1 ut terances on conservation made by Pres ident Wilson in the campaign. The members of the committee wh called wero Thomas Shlpp. of Indianap olis: A. w. wmte. or Kansas City: Lee Uarsham. of Atlanta: B. N. Baker, of Baltimore, and Charles L. Peck. Lakewood. N. J. They were received In the Bast Room. MRS. WON JOINS 8OCIALW0RKEBSHERE "Fir U-y" LtsfcM to Wari&sne Sa- erhtsatdwt't Lactm aad Pay Meaautaskip Dues.- WHITTAKER TELLS OF PROGRESS Mrs. Woodrow Wilson, the "First Lady of the Land," entered the ranks of the social workers In the Capital yesterday by Joining the woman welfare depart ment of the National Civic Federation. Mrs. Wlbjon had been! giving close at tention to a lecture by Supt Whlttaker. of the workhouse at .Occoquan, Va at tne x. M. u. A., ana wnen tne aaarnis was over Indicated to Mrs. Archibald Hopkins her desire to become a member. She paid her dues In'advanca. Mrs. Wil son Is much Interested in the class of work carried on by the woman's welfare department In Princeton and Trenton, and the local organisation expects that she and probably her daughters also will take an active part In District civic work Mrs. Wilson arrived In the White House car, and was received by W. O. Hlltabldle. house secretary of the Y. M. C A. She was accompanied by Wss Hagner. her social secretary. Supt' Whlttaker yesterday, by means of the stereoptlcon, took his audience through the workhouse, ad showed how the work of caring for Xhe District's unfortunates has progressed during the last three years at Occoquan. He said it Is very desirable to obtain an Indetermi nate sentence for prisoners atOccoquan. By this method, he added, better work could be done In reforming the prisoners by keeping them there under congenial employment until they were able to stand alone. Then the Institution would help to find employment for them and restore their lost social position. Mrs. Hopkins asked Mr. Whlttaker to present tbe matter in writing, and prom ised him It would receive earnest con sideration. Another question which, he said, should be taken up by the women and In which they could do great good was the mat ter of nonsupport cases. He declared he believed that there were some men sent to him for nonsupport who really should not be there. In some cases, he continued, the woman often wants to make affidavit against the roan to get rid of him. PLAN TO MAKE CITY CLEANEST IN COUNTRY WEATHER CONDITIONS. V S. Drpt. of Acnculture.

With Secretary of State Brjan off on a speech-making- tour In the West, and old foreign policies being overturned at the White House, a most unusual situa tion exists at the State Department. Huntington Wilson is now Acting Sec retary of State, but Is said to be In a rather uncomfortable position. At Mr. Brian's request, Mr. Wilson canceled his bookings to sail for Europe on March IS, and consented to remain at his post at the department Indefinitely.,. He is now being subjected to the sensation of sitting in the scat of authority, and DHJGHTFUL COMtDY THOROUGHLY ENJOYED "Ho Rirali," at A iliico, Taltw AsmVmco lack ta Ta OUw Day. Not In many years has so delightful a performance of Sheridan' fin old comedy, "The Rivals," been enjoyed by Washington theatergoers as that pre sented by Annie Russell's Old English Comedy Company at the Belasco Thea ter last night. We, have to hark back, to the days of dear old Joe Jefferson .to find adequate comparison, and even such comparison leaves a large credit balance In favor of Miss Russell's organisation. The mental refinement of this sterling actress has created for these old English plays the atmosphere of the days of their origjn; the audience Is placed In complete rapport with the times, manners of speech of a century and a half ago. This Lydia Languish Is not simply a twentieth century woman disguised In the costumes of days long past: she Is In every essen tial feature the romantic, mirthful, re fined young gentlewoman whom our Imagination conjures up beore our mind's eye as we listen to the poet's lan guage and see the scheme of the play unfolded before us. In every detail. Usually and spiritually. Miss Russell's Lydia is a wonderfully attractive por traiture. The Mrs. Malaprop of Ffolllot Paget la a splendid Impersonation of this gro tesque character, ranking with. the best traditions 'of the American stage. Equally so does the Bob Acres of George Olddens make an Irresistible appeal to every perception of what Is absurd. Mr. Gtddens Invests the part with striking Individuality. The representation estab lishes still more firmly Mr. Olddens as one of the finest comedians of his day. Thomas F. Fallon Is unexcelled as the blustering, roistering, mischief-making Lucius O'Trigger, and Oswald Torke gave us a fine impersonation of the dashing, lovable Capt. Jack Absolute. Fred W. Permaln Is a capital Sir An thony Absolute, and Murray Ktnnell as Faulkland, Harold Meltrer as Fag. Lit tleday Power as David, Henrietta Good wlnjis Julia, and Katherine Clarendon as Lucy fill their respective assignments so admirably as to contribute a considerable share to the full enjoyment of so har monious a performance.

FIFTT A DAY THE ESTIMATE Preparations for spring are being made upon a large scale at the District Pound, for the work ot this branch of the Dis trict government " has its greatest In crease during tbe "silly season" ot the year. With .the breaking ot spring and the coming of the first balmy breezes, cats are most wont to gather In courts. allys and by-ways and sing their mourn ful ditties to .the moon, much to tha chagrin of the sleepy. Dogs get the "wanderlust" in sprlpg and roam -4he city streets without purpose or muzzle in defiance of the city regulations. Foundmaster Kuhn. though In sym pathy with spring. Is making extensive preparations. To the average prosaic citizen, the cat. who tunes its pipes on an outlying back fence night after night In 'what the cat considers beautiful spring-song. Is a men ace to society and. therefore, the pound master expects to receive fifty cats a day when spring has really begun to get In Its work. Spring also makes the dogs eccentric. It gets Into the blood ot the little yellow mongrel who has hid long and well from emissaries ot the poundmaster and ho dances wild circles, barking, snapping and making people think that he is mad. Docile house dogs also go tearing aim lessly through the streets, and, when the night comes with one accord the dogs Join their chorus to that of the cats and burst forth In wonderful harmonies to spring. Foundmsster Kuhn Is making exten slve preparations against the springtime, and the face of many a dog and cat who will sing this spring will be missed from the summer councils of their friends.
