As patriotic daughters of the great

most successful democracy the world has
ever known, we should ever strive to set
an example In patriotic reverence for
that voice of the majority, which, if not
always quite the equivalent of the voice
of God, should yet be recognized as the
only authoritative and final arbiter in
matters of government.

Rockefeller Research Institute
Scientist Announces Prep
aration of Serum.
Obstacle Wkick fer Tears Has Baled
Pbysiciams ia Treating Disease
Is Orercoae.
Now York, April 18. A serum for
the cure of pneumonia has been de
veloped at the Rockefeller Research
Institute in this city and will soon be
given to the pjiblio, according to an
announcement made by Dr. Claren.ce
McWilliams, one of the medical ex
perts attached to the institute.
Many tests lasting over a consider
able portion of time have been made
of the serum and It has Been esiao
llshed that it is a certain cure for all
forms of pneumonia, according to an
nouncement. Tho discovery is consid
ered to be one of the most important
ever made in the treatment of disease.
The unknown obstacle which has for
years baffled scientists in their search
for a serum for the cure of pneumonia,
and the discovery of which enabled the
bacteriologists of the Rockefeller In
stitute to perfect such a serum, was
the finding a short time ago that the
pneumococcus bacillus Is responsible
for pneumonia and that this bacclllus
or organism, consists oi rwo neparaw
strains, each of which causes pneu
monia. Sersm from Home.
It was later learned that the disease,
whether caused by one form of ba
cillus or the other, follows the same gen
eral Jlne of progress, rendering them
similar to all outward appearance, but
It was found that a serum which would
onre Tmeumonia resulting from tine
specie of bacillus would not cure or
appreciably affect the other form.
The serum was obtained in the usual
way by inoculating a horse with grad
ually increasing amounts of pneumococ
cus bacillus until the animal was Im
miinn to tremendous doses. After the
finding of the separate forms of bacil
lus," sets of "horses were fnoculated with
the different forms, and In this manner
two serums were obtained.
By subjecting mice to Injections of
tho sputum of pneumonia patients, the
form of disease from which they were
suffering was determined and then ihe
proper serum was administered.
This determination can be made with
in twenty-four hours, and the particular
serum required is quickly and easily in
jected into the veins. It is hoped to
combine the serums within a short time,
to obviate the necessity of waiting to
analyze the sputum before making the

Washington Banker Attacks
Representative as Result of
Long-standing Quarrel
Southern Lawmaker Has Hat Kiocked
( Off aid Baik Preeideat Is
Fisticuffs In fashionable Farragut
Square yesterday climaxed the long
standing feud between Representative
Thetus Sims of Tennessee, a former
member of the House District Commit
tee, and Charles C. Glover, president of
the Riggs National Bank, of this city.
Mr. Glover twice landed a right hook
to Representative Sims' head, dislodging
the latter s hat.
Mr. Glover w.is prevented from finishing
his work by the interference of Sherman
Allen, Assistant Secretary of the Treas
ury, and Capt Charles E. McAllister, of
the revenue cutter service. Admiral
Dewey and Secretary of War Garrison
also were passing through the park just
in time to get a glimpse of the bout.
Mr. Sims made no attempt to strike
back, according to his own version. Mr.
Glover verified this statement. Accord
ing to Mr. Sims, the banker struck him
only once. Mr. Glover says he got la
two good wallops "with the open palm
of my right hand." ,
Mr. Glover Is sixty-three years old, but
a very active, athletic man. He is about
five feet ten and w elghs around 1S5 pounds.
Thetus Wilrette Sims is sixty-one, a lit
tle shorter than Mr. Glover, but of good
weight, although ho carries a consider
able part of it under his vest.
The affair was described to The
Washington Herald by both Mr. Glover
and Judge Sims. Their stories are con
siderably at variance, but the main facts
of the altercation, as related by them,
agrees. When seen at his country place;
at Massachusetts and Nebraska Ave
nues, late yesterday afternoon, Mr.
Glover said:
"As I was leaving my town house this
morning on my way to my bank, I saw
Sims waddling across Farragut Circle.
I crossed over to where he stood and
said. 'This is Mr. Sims, I believe.' He
replied: 'And this Is Mr. 'Glover.'
"I looked him equarely in the face and
" I want to tell you to your face that
you are a contemptible liar; yes, a mis
erable, contemptible liar. Furthermore,
I mean to show you Just what I think
of you.
"With that, added Mr. Glover, "I
struck Sims a blow squarely on the jaw
with the open palm of my hand. He
reeled back and cried:
" 1 need protection. I need protec
tion "Yes," r said to him, "you do need
protection, d n you.
"With that Ihlt him again as hard
as I could. Ry that time two otherpar
tles.who were passing rushed up and
urged me to go no further. I walked
across the street and entered my auto
mobile." Mr. Glover reviewed in detail the Inci
dents that led up to the attack, stating
that he had been falsely accused again
and again by Judge Sims, and that he
had at last got to the point where he
could restrain himself no longer.
Statement by Judge Sims.
In a statement of what occurred Judge
Sims said last night:
"I left my residence, 2139 Wyoming
Avenue, this morning about 9:15 o'clock
to go to the Fostoftice Department, walk
ing down Connecticut Avenue. I started
to cross through Farragut Square. When
I was about a. third of the way through
some one came up behind me and either
touched ,me or attracted my attention In
some way. I turned around, and at first
did not recognize the man. I hadn't
seen Mr. Glover for a long time. As I
stopped to see what he wanted, he .said:
" 'Do you know who I am-'
"He looked serious, 'but not angry. I
said: 'Yes; it's Mr. Glover.'
"He said: 'Why did you attack me on
the floor of the House?' I replied: 'I did
not attack you. I simply defended my
self against your attack.'
"He said: 'You "ought to apologize.'
I replied: 'I will be glad to apologize to
you or any one else for any statement
I made that was .not warranted by the
facts, but the statements I made, at
the time I made them, I believed to be
warranted by what I understood to be
the facts.'
"Then he seemed to become angry, and
talked loudly, using profanity I would
not undertake to say what he said. X

Hagerstown last August, was to th
effect today that he was almost delirious
as a result of the treatment which he
Is alleged to have received In the "third
degree" methods which Is claimed was
used to force a confession from him.
This testimony is absolutely denied by
and contradicted by United States As
sistant District Attorney 'Hawken, who
said he had made it his particular busi
ness to see that McCleary was comfort
able, and had, In fact his (McCleary's)
own admission that this was the case.
Among other statements made on the
witness stand, Frank D. Waggaman,
counsel for the defense, said that Mc
Cleary had told him he iiad been kept
in a dark room, and that he was prom
ised to go in with the other prisoners
if he confessed. McCleary also told
Waggaman. according to witness, that
' he knew how to confess."

tary confinement until he made the con
fession, waa the statement ot William

Conditioa Still Precarious, Say Pkysi
j ciaas, aad Another Relapse
Is Feared.
Rome, April 18. Pope Plus continued
his remarkable rally, and Is reported to
be steadily Improving tonight. While
this news has cheered Rome, it has not
tended to restore the confidence of the
"Vatican as to tho ultimate recovery of
the Pontiff.
Cardinal Merry del Val issued the fol
lowing bulletin tonight:
"His Holiness has spent a tranquil day
and has rested well. His temperature Is
97.3 Tho bronchial affection has been
materially ameliorated, and his general
condition is much Improved."
During the day the Pope took some
light chicken broth and a small piece
of dry toast.
The physicians still consider the Pope
to be in a precarious -condition. It is
pointed out that even should the bron
chial symptoms abate still further or
entirely disappear, fresh complications
of a cardiac or ureamlc nature are fear
ed, owing to the greatly weakened con
dition of the holy father. The present
rally which the Pontiff has made Is
not a true indication of his remaining
strength, for he has been fortified con
stantly with injections of camphor oil
and numerous drugs to keep up his
TakeSr"Interet In Affairs.
A huge throng of Romans congregated
in St Peter's Square tonight to watch
for the ascension of the star over the
cupola above the papal apartments,
which was predicted by Mine. Thebes,
a French clairvoyant, would occur and
signify the recovery of the Pope, The
star did not appear, and the ever super
stitious Italians drew the augury there
from that the Pope's illness will have a
fatal ending.
His Holiness is showing an Increasing
interest In affairs. He has Insisted on
conveying instructions to Cardinal Fer
rata concerning the eucharistlc congress
and on learning what arrangements have
been made for the pontifical mass on
Pentecost Sunday.

London. April 18. Militant suffragettes
today took possession of the famous
Fire 'monument in the fish market,
district of London, Just south of London
Bridge, and for several hours rained suf
frage literature and missiles upon thtt
crowds beneath, stopping all rram, ve
hicular, andsfoot traffic in the streets.
The women alternated their cannonade
of pamphlets with screams of "Votes for
Women" and "Victory or Death," while
the fish vendors in the streets below, en
raged at the tie-up of business, replied in
that kind of language which has made
Billingsgate famous the world over.
In addition to hurling things, some fish
merchants suffered physical injuries.
They caperd about in the street im
precating the "cause' and cursing the
police for allowing the women .to seize
the monument.
Flags of the suffrage colors, bearing all
manner of inscriptions, were hoisted ou
top of tho monument.
In the meantime the crowd in the
street below had become so dense that
all traffic was stopped.

By making a concerted attack, police
men managed to storm the narrow stair

ment, but there another difficulty beset
them. The women refused to descend
the steps, and one woman declared sua
would commit suicide by hurling herself
-from the top of the tower if any police
man laid hands on her.
Finding peacabler measures ineffectual,
the .officers made' a sudden rush, each
grabbing a woman. The scene then be
came one of tho wildest confusion.
Shrieking, biting, kicking, and struggling,
the women were laboriously carried down
the stairway to the street- In their rage
the women scratched the policemen's
faces, bit their hands, and tore their
uniforms. The women, with hair down,
dresses torn, and hysterical from rage
and excitement, continued to make a
demonstration In the street, and by
standers had to help the police officers
with them.

The Secretary of State said, in effect"
"You were all right, Champ; It was the
company you were keeping that I ob

The Speaker, in his statement, con
cedes nothing, except that Mr. Bryan
now has done all that he can do to re
pair the Injury inflicted at the Baltimore
Sf.re to the Brvan statement:
My meeting with Mr. Clark has served
to clear up a misunderstanding as to my
exact position toward him at the Balti
more convention. I have tried to make It
clear to Mr. Clark that I have always re
garded, and do now regard him, as a good,
clean progressive Democrat. If my lan
guage at Baltimore created any impres
Bi?" hat I was charging Mr. Clark
with being in sympathy with any of the
reactionary forces, I am glad of the op
portunity to correct any such miscon
struction of my words or acts, for I did
not Intend to reflect upon either the per
sonal or political integrity of the Speaker.
It Is my earnest wish that there may be
cordial co-operation between the State
Department and the Speaker in carrying
out the policies of the administration.
Here is the Clark statement:
"It is beyond the power of Col. Brjan
or any one else to correct the Injustice
that was done me at Baltimore. The loss
of the Presidential nomination was a
small thing, as compared to the injury
done to my reputation in the ees of the
world. But now that Col. Bryan in his
public statement has done what he can
to remove the injurious impressions that
were created by his Baltimore speeches,
I feel that we can all the better co-operate
for the good of the administration. I
can ouly repeat what I have publicly de
clared time and-time again, that all per
sonal or JtelflssFconsiderations mui,t glvo
way to the duty that all Democrats owe
to our party and to our country.

Bryan's statement had been submit
ted to Clark, and Clark's to Bryan and
each had been O. K'd., by the other
before the formal meeting and the
hand shake took place. The recon
ciliation of the Commoner and tlits
Speaker took place at a luncheon, giv
en by Ira E. Bennett, in a private dining-room
at the New Wlllard. Thb"
passing of the peace pipe was the re
sult of efforts by Mr. Bennett and
Theodore A. Bell, of California.
The harsh feelings between Clark
and Bryan have been one of the dan
ger spots In the Democratio situation.
The Speaker came out of the Baltimore
convention vowing that he would never
again have anything to do with CoL
Bryan. Clark, on every occasion,
showed his bitter feeling toward tho
Commoner. No sign of recognition
passed between the two on inaugura
tion day. when they sat only a few
feet apart at the ceremonies, and it
was an open secret that Mr. Clark's
friends feared that his intense bitter
ness might carry him beyond the pro
prieties whenever the two should meet
face to face.
This hostility has been one of the chief
embarrassments to the Wilson adminis
tration up to this time. Bryan always
has shown a conciliatory spirit, but
Clark held aloof until Mr. Bell and his
friends took up the negotiations last
Bell was in a particularly favorable
position to act as negotiator. Ho had
served as temporary chairman of the
Democratic convention in Denver In 1908
which nominated Col. Bryan. At Balti
more he was for Champ Clark until the
very last gun was fired. At Baltimore
Brjan put Bell on his blacklist because
he had formed the impression that he
was faioring the "Interests."
Mr. Bell decided to thresh out his own
case with Bryan first and then take up
the harmony programme. Ha walked
