Delegations of suffragists, ,under the leadership of Mrs. Medlll McCormlck. were busy at the Capitol yesterday lining up Senators to vote for the pending" Federal amendment now on passage through the Senate. 'Miss Lucy Burns, vice chairman of the Congressional Union, primarily or ganized to further the suffrage amend ment, was also busy at the same task. It was an agile Senator who escaped gentle lobbying on the part or these two suffrage flying squadrons. Optimism over the woman suffrage situation In the Senate was expressed last nleht by Mrs. McCormlck. who is chairman of the national Congressional committee. Mrs. McCormlck said: Find Unexpected Support. MA rjinvasa of the Senators, with a, view to ascertaining their sentiments upon tho proposed suffrage amendment has revealed 'unusual and unexpected strength In quarters where it was least expected. Senators who for years have been presumed to be unalterably op posed to legislation of this nature now have the question under discussion. "Senator Ashurst, closely co-operating with this organization, delivered a two- hours" address, putting the entire argu ment In favor of feminine votes in such a convincing and forceful way that our cause In the Senate has gained new and powerful advocates. It will be brought to a vote at an early date. "The Congressional Committee of the National American Woman Suffrage As sociation Is indeed Indebted to the Sen ate Committee on Woman Suffrage for their painstaking labor in our behair." Will Call on President. Mrs. Jessie Hardy Stubbs, director of publicity of the Congressional Upion, jesterday announced that a deputation of women workers coming from tho various Industrial States will wait upon the President February 2. at which time they will ask him to lend his support to the suffrage bill. Since this is the first deputation of working women to wait upon a Presi dent, the whole country will look for ward with- great interest to the Presi dent's reply. Large delegations are be ing organized in acw lork. New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware. Maryland, Con necticut. Virginia, West Virginia, and other States. Miss Doris Stevens will go to Baltimore January 3 to organize the workers from that city. Mrs. Glendower Evans, of Boston; Mrs. Rajmond Robins, of Chicago, and Mrs. Mary Beard, of New York City, all prominently Identified with the organiza tion of women's trade union leagues throughout the country, will be among the labor leaders to Join the deputation. They will arrive February 1, and will be met by members of the Congressional Union. They will be tendered a recep tion at the Brighton Hotel when Senators and Representatives identified with the labor movement will receive them. Officials Will Tie Present.

Deputy Tire Chief An Hw J. SullUan was yesterday ijlven a public hearing before the District Com missioner In the District Building with a lew of determining whether the dep uty chief had anything- to add to the eUdence gathered by Commissioner Sld dons In a secret Investigation of the fire at the American Five and Ten Cent Store In Seventh street, early on Decem ber It l For the first time since Commissioner Slddons started his secret Investigation of tho Seventh street fire, was the tes timony rendered by several members of the department publicly reealed. For the first time was the charge of negli gence publicly hurled at Deputy Chief Sullivan, when Corporation Attorney 8yme. In a statement relating to the testimony given In the star-chamber probe, asserted that Sullivan, having or dered fle firemen into the burning store, was responsible for their safety and their lives. The Commissioners at the conclusion of the hearing declined to say whether yesterday's session would be resumed. However, It was clearly evident, that owing to the strength of the representa tion of Deputy Chief- Sullivan's friends and In ilew of Uie vigor and enthusiasm of the speeches made In his behalf, the Commissioners will be morally compelled to ghe Sullivan an opportunity to re fute. If he can. the testimony given to Commissioner Slddons In the course of the Inquiry. Chief Proctor's Testimony. The most lncrlmlnlatlng part" of this testimony was rendered by Third Bat talion Chief Proctor, who. according to the record of his testimony, stated to Mr. Slddons. that "it was criminal neglect to put the men in that building and leave them there." Chief Wagner, It was learned at the hearing, also testified to Commissioner Slddons that "it was not cood Judgment on the part of Deputy Chief Sullivan to send the five men Into the burning building.' It was Intimated by some 01 tne speaK- ers at the hearing that if any one was to blame for the Imprisonment of the fle men. It was Chief Wagner rather than Chief Sullivan, it having been stated by witnesses, that when the chief engineer of the fire department reached the scene of the fire. Sullivan was ordered to the roof of tho Strasburger shoe store, in order to prevent the flames from spread ing. From the moment tnat umei nag- ner appeared on the scene. It was as. serted by some of those who spoke In Sullivan's behalf, until the fire was over. Chief Wagner and not Sullivan was In charge of the fire. Attorney Charles w. uarr, representing Sullivan. In an opening statement at the hearing, declared that no charges hav ing been made against Sullivan, there was no defense for him to make. Mr. Darr paid a high tribute to the career of Denuty Chief Sullivan as a fire-fighter and pleaded that Sullivan was entitled, not only to a. fair trial, Dut a more than a fair consideration of the statement said to have been made against him. Mr. Darr called Sullivan "a consclentlus, loyal, and honest fireman." He appealed to "fairness and Justice shown by the Commissioners shewn thus far" and gen eraly lauded the deputy chiefs career. Enthualaatlc Speeches Blade.

FRIENDS SUBSCRIBE TO BROWNE MONUMENT Total of $78.60 Received for Memo rial to Labor Knight of Coxey Fame. Responses to The Washington Herald's announcement that It would take care of contributions to a fund for the proposed monument to the late Carl Browne, the "Labor Knight," who as Cen. Coxey"s lieutenant on the famous march of Coney's army to the Capital, are already coming In rapidly. The total recorded last night was JTS.fti. and It Is believed that this will be rapidly Increased as the "Labor Knight's" friends in distant parts of the country become Informed of the plan to honor his memory. Mrs. Mary Mackenzie Byrne subscribed CO. Representative William Kent, of Cali fornia. : a Socialist Friend. SI: Mr. and Airs, c M. Murray. II, and a collection tnken among a few friends of Mr. Browne amounted to tl 60. So far the plans for the monument have not taken definite shape. Carl Browne was known In so many places and to so many people that probably It will be some time before the scheme for the memorial is specially laid out. To organized labor and to members of the Socialist party he was especially well known, but everywhere he went his re markable Individuality, his quaint mode of life, his much boasted octoplane, and his unfailing good humor and shrewd ness won him acquaintances and friends.

Herald Hesitation Waltz" LEGISLATURE PEEVED BY ACTION OF WOMAN Suffragist Cause Got Setback by Man ners of Lobbyists, Says Mrs. Gardner. "MOST UNDIGNIFIED CONDUCT" That tho cause of suffrage received a severe setback In the Maryland State legislature, was the statement made yes terday by a member of that body to Mrs. Augustus Peabody Gardner, president of the District Association Opposed to Wom an Suffrage, at Its headquarters. IMS H street. Mrs. Gardner waa told In minute de tail by the Marylander that If there ever existed any moro than courteous Interest In or sympathy for the suffrage cause among the Maryland lawmakers. It got badly chilled by the methods and man ners employed by the sufTragistsyWho went to Annapolis to lobby forf their cause. "Unwomanly and moat undignified was their conduct," said Mrs. Gardner's In formant, "and their tactics and behav ior served as a revelation in thiw mom. bers who heretofore had been favorablv inclined to at least give the arguments of the suffragists a patient hearing. The sunragists in their unbridled effort to impress upon the legislators their Inner most desires littered the desks of the members with leaflets and pamphlets containing arguments teemln with covert attacks on man's ability to pass just ana iair laws: making sneering innuendos at the woman and mother wno strictly attends to her home and husband and children, to the exclusion of politics, and heaping fulsome praise upon the suffrage movement and the un usual ntness or woman to help to make laws ana run the government. "One of the leaflets which nu fnn.i4 most objectionable by the legislators was neaaea Dy two pictures, one of which presented a woman on her knees scrub bing and the other men cleaning streets under the supervision of a uniformed woman doss. The woman boss shows conclusively the selfish aim of the suffra gists. Tho members of the Maryland leg islature, however, cannot be intimidated, but will pay close heed to the wishes of the people of Maryland, an overwhelming majority of whom are-pposed to woman suffrage, and act accordingly." Mrs. Mahan. who Is In charge of head quarters of the antls. says that It Is al most a dally occurrence that suffragists call, and because they cannot convince her to their way of thinking roundly abuse her In Insulting language.
