been troubled with Acne for a)?out five years. She
had tried eminent physicians and specialists of

well."?G. G. GIL/BERT, Member Congress Shelby

NEW BANK BILLS.
Possession of Them Stamp a Man as
"While ln Chicago recently I had an ex
perience which caused me considerable
amusement, and a stranger the price of a
lunch for two," said a Washington corre
"I went Into the business office of one
of the large dallies to Insert an advertise
ment. I handed the cashier a new $10
bill. While examining my change I ob
served him take from his own pocketbook
a bill of similar denomination and replace
It with my new bill with evident satisfac
" 'Say, my friend," I asked, 'what 1s the
matter with your own money?' .
" "Dirty,' answered the windy city inan,
with a grin. Then he added: 'I will bet you
are from Washington.'
"I informed him politely that he had hot
right, and I asked him If I had the Wash
ington monument or the Capitol photo
graphed upon my face.
" 'No,' he replied, 'but whenever mm
comes ln here and hands out fresh, new and
unused bllls.evldently direct from the treas
ury, it ls a cinch bet that he is from the
capital. Got any more of the new goods
to trade for this "stuff?" ' he asked, pick
ing up a handful of black, unhealthy ap
pearing bank notes.
"I shoved Into his little window several
hundred dollars in new hills that were not
even creased, and that Chicago man's hand
fell upon them as would a boy's hand upon
a piece of cak? or a miser's upon his gold.
He explained-'to met that the people in the
west do not see crisp, new bills once In a
dog's age, and that the currency circulates
so long among the people before it reaches
the banks to be collected and sent to Wash
ington for redemption that it often be
comes almost blackffrom usage. He in
tended, he said, to glfa a portion of my new
money to ills wife asW mark of the highest
regard and ^present to be esteemed, and
stated that ft* would be as proud over
Its possession, especially when spending It,
in the presence of her dearest friend, aa
If she bad had a new hat. As for him
self, since it was lUnch hour, I permitted
him to exchange one of hi* dirty bills for
more dirty bills and silver and a needed
stimulant to ward off the chilly winds from

"In Washington an old, dirty bill Is rare

means cannot be devised whereby the old
and tattered pieces of currency in circula
tion elsewhere cannot be more quickly taken
up and redeemed."
PROPOSED ERECTION OF TWO IN
Perpetuation' of the Memory of Pulaski
and Kosciuszko?Sons of Rev
olution Indorse Project.
Interest among the Sons of the Revolu
tion during today's sessions of their na
tional triennial conclave is centered appar
ently on a repoct..made during yesterday's
meeting at Mount Vernon by the District
of Columbia society. That report concern
ed many subjects, as did all the similar
statements made during the session, but
it dealt chiefly with a proposition to adorn
the two northern corners of Lafayette
Square with monuments to Count Casimer
Pulaski and General Tadeusz Kosciuszko.
When the plan of the District Sons was
made plain the whole body of delegates ap
plauded heartily and gave the project a
more enthusiastic approval than was ac
corded any other feature of yesterday's
The report was submitted by Mr. Barry
Bulkley, the historian of the District chap
ter. He first reported to the conclave certain
resolutions adopted by the Daughters of the
American Revolution and submitted to liim
by Elizabeth Washington Hunter of that
body advocating the restoration and per
manent care of historic Pohick Church.
He then proceeded to the exposition of the
District plan for the adornment of Lafay
ette Square, it was pointed out that statues
of I^afayette and Rochambeau were al
ready provided for, and that the latter was
now in course of erection. It was proposed
that the two other corners of the park be
ornamented with monuments to Pulaski and
Tribute to Dead Generals.
Mr. Buckley interrupted the report to
pay a very eloquent tribute to the achive
ments, talents and services to America ol
both generals. Pulaski was particularly
mentioned as the first cavalry commander
in the American army and a leader who
had distinguished himself for valor and
ability in the battle of Brandywine and
numerous other engagements. Further
more, he continued, the count's latter-day
countrymen who had made America theli
home were deeply interested in the p-oject.
Already a bill had been introduced in the
House of Representatives and favorably re
ceived which provided an appropriation ot
$r>0,000 for the purpose of erecting the monu
The plan to complete the square with a
memorial to Kosciuszko, the greatest engi
neering nfflcet of the continental army, was
not so definitely announced in the report,
?but the District society expressed Itself as
heartily in favor of such a movement.
Gauged by applause the approval of the
whole body of delegates was enthusiastic.
Handclapping rang through the hall for
several minutes, when Mr. Bulkley conclud
ed and there were many expressions that
the two distinguished foreigners should be
signally honored as soon as possible. To
day, Capt. Charles H. Campbell, registrat
or the District society, discovered that no
official dedicatory exercises had ever oc
curred at the Lafayette monument. When
this fact became generally known it was
agreed that the several representatives and
senators who were members of the society
should be asked to provide for appropriate
ceremonies to occur probably when the
Rochambeau monument should be dedi
Reports of State Organizations.
After the close of The Star's report of
yesterday's proceedings the society consid
ered a series of reports submitted from the
several state organizations. These con
cerned chiefly a plan to change the repre
sentation in the national conclave. At pres
ent each state society Is entitled to five del
egates. The proposed amendment is that
each state shall have two delegates and an
additional delegate for each 100 members.
Only three states objected to the change.
The convention voted that the secretary
general should inform the officers of those,
state associations of the vote and ask them
to reconsider the matter. With this action
the consideration of the question closed.
The report of the New York Society ex
cited much comment. It was stated that a
site had been purchased In West Kith street.
New York city, at a cost of $02,000, on
which was to be erected a state building.
The purpose of this step was to provide the
state organization with a suitable museum,
library, headquarters building and banquet
hall, and construction of the building was
to be begun without delay. Another report
of notable import came from Judge Penny
packer of the Pennsylvania Society, "who
informed the convention that his state had
subscribed a fund of $7,000 toward an
equestrian statue of Gen. Anthony Wayne.
A tour of the city on a trolley car and a
visit to Fort Myer made up tthe program
of this morning's meeting. This afternoon
the delegates will exchange visits and rest.
Tonight they meet at the New Willajd for
the formal banquet of the conclave. The
meeting closes tomorrow with a special ser
vice to be conducted at the Church of the
Epiphany by Rev. Randolph H. McKim.

OPPOSITION TO TREATY.
Stormy Debate in Danish Parliament
Over Islands' Sale.
A dispatch from Copenhagen yesterday
says: A secret session of the landsthlng
was held today. After short intermissions
the session closed at 8 o'clock tonight.
Three reports on the treaty providing for
the sale of the Danish West Indies to the
United States were submitted.
The right, constituting the majority, was
in favor of deferring the ratification of
the treaty until after a vote in which only
electors and members of the colonial coun
cil of the islands shall take part.
The ministerial minority was in favor of
the unconditional ratification of the treaty,
while an Independent group of the mem
bers favored ratification depending upon
and following a plebiscite of the inhabit
ants of the islands.
The majority report was severely at
tacked by the ministerial party for its in
consistency and obstruction. This enraged
the opposition leaders, who demanded a re
cess for the purpose of holding a caucus.
The caucus was stormy, and it was diffi
cult to hold the members of the opposition
in check and Jo prevent them from modi
fying the majority report and making it
more acceptable to the ministry.
Two more short recesses became neces
sary, owing to disagreement on the part
of the foreign minister, who pressed the
The three reports, as above described,
were finally submitted.

Columbian Students Win in
ALLIANCE BETWEEN UNITED
STATES AND ENGLAND.
University of Virginia Representatives
Go Down Before the Local
An enthusiastic audience of college stu
dents and the friends of the Columbian Uni
versity and the University of Virginia filled
Columbia Theater yesterday afternoon. The
occasion was the contest between the crack
debaters of the universities, and which
ended in a victory for Columbian. As both
sides had partisans, the scene of the debate
had many lively and picturesque features.
College colors were in evidence, the yellow
and black being waved by the adherents of
Columbian, while the adherents of the Uni
versity of Virginia displayed their emblems
of black and yellow.
The greeting which the speakers received
was hearty and spontaneous, and they were
cheered on to their best endeavors by the
evident interest which was manifested on
the part of their fellow students. College
yells were given with a will, and the at
mosphere was decidedly that of the free
and hearty life of exuberant youth.
The orchestra rendered selections, while
the audience was being seated, and then
Mr. Charles W. Needham, the dean of the
School of Comparative Jurisprudence, step
ped forward and announced the order of
Debaters and Judges.
On each side of the stage were seated the
debaters, while in the orchestra seats were
the judges, Justice White of the Supreme
Court; 8enator Cullom of Illinois and Sen
ator Hawley of Connecticut.
The question was "Resolved, That an of
fensive and defensive alliance with Great
Britain would be to the best interests of
the United States." Columbian argued the
affirmative side of the question, while the
negative was supported by Virginia.
The affirmative debaters from Columbian
were Mr. I^uther M. Walter of Kentuckj,
Mr Joseph W. Howell ot* Michigan, and Mr.
J. Homer Deis of Ohio, each of whom spoke
sixteen minutes. The speakers on the neg
ative side were Mr. James R. Caton, jr..
of Virginia: Mr. Thomas \\ Holloman of
Mississippi and Mr. Toy Dixon Savage of
North Carolina. The two former spoke six
teen minutes, and the others twenty-one
minutes. Mr. Deis had five minutes in
which to close the argument for the uffirm
The arguments advanced showed that the
debaters had thoroughly studied the sub
ject. After conferring together upon the
conclusion of the debate, the judges reached
the unanimous decision that the affirmative
side had made the best argument. Their
decision was received with a great demon
stration on the part of the adherents of
Mr. Walle^, in opening the debate, said
the position* which the affirmative would
assume in the discussion would be the po
sition of Americans who believe in a gov
ernment for the people, of the people and
by the people. lie stated the objects of the
alliance and produced arguments to prove
that conditions at this time were favorable
to it. The objects of an alliance with
Great Britain, he declared, were the build
ing up of American commerce, the exten
sion of the Enblish language throughout ;
the world and the formation of an interna
tional tribunal. Such an alliance, said the
speaker, would not be a menace to the lest
of the world, but would command peace.
He said that all Europe was now arrayed
against the i'nited States industrially, and
with Great Britain as ojir ally the com
merce of the world could be controlled. In
discussing American commercial conditions
the speaker endeavored to show that unless
a big and steady outlet for our immense
amount of products can be secured abroad
overproduction will come, with wreck and
ruin as the result.
Mr. Caton was the first speaker for the
negative, and lie said that the very
nature of such an alliance, as proposed,
was belligerent, for an offensive and defen
sive alliance carried with it the assumption
that the countries participating In it have
common interests in America. He said
there were no Fuch imperialistic tendencies
as prevailed in Great Britain. He said that
America already had England s moral sup
port without an alliance, and that such
an agreement would not benefit the I'nited
States commercially, neither would it bt
ccnductive to the maintenance of the peacc
of nations. Mr. Caton said an alliance
would lead to the abolition of the Monroe
doctrine, and to entanglements between oui
government and European countries, and
while America might strengthen herself
abroad she would weaken herself at home.
Mr. Howell, the second speaker for the
affirmative, in opening his argument, re
quested the judges to bear in mind that
this alliance was for the present time and
not for the middle ages. He said that as
this government formerly had to provide
for the relations between states, so now
must it participate with other governments
in providing for the relations between
nations. He declared that Great Britain
was the most natural ally this government
could gain. He said this was true be
cause of the common aims and similar
methods of attaining these aims; because
of the common language, the common liter
ature, common institutions and common
law, which exist between the United States
and Great Britain. As to the Monroe doc
trine, he said, the alliance would not give
England authority to go into South Amer
ica. as it would have to recognize all exist
ing institutions of both governments. He
stated that with England In control of the
Mediterranean and this country in control
of the isthmian canal, the two govern
ments would hold the gates to a commercial
pathway around the globe, and cited this
as another reason why Great Britain was
a natural ally.
In continuing the argument for the nega
tive side. Mr. Hobleman asserted that the
commercial interests of this country for
bid an alliance and that commercial treat
ies could be secured without it. He said it
would be stark madness for this country
to tie itself up with Great Britain, for the"
world would Instantly combine against the
two governments, and it would be found
that America and England could not dic
tate the commerce of the world. He con
sidered it foolhardy to seek an alliance with
England for the purpose of benefiting the
commercial interests of this country, as
the United States already sends her prod
ucts to Great Britain and all her posses
sions free of duty, and Great Britain Is her
largest customer. "We need no stimulant
for our commerce." the speaker said. "It is
Great Britain that needs the stimulant. An
alliance would give her all the benefits."
The speaker cited several historical cases
to show that an alliance almost Invariably
results In war. A British-American alli
ance, he declared, would result in a race
war, in which all the peoples who do not
speak English would array themselves
against the Anglo-Saxons. Instead of be
ing a blessing, he said, an alliance with
Great Britain would be a curse.
The Closing Speeches.
The affirmative side was taken up by Mr.
Deis, who prefaced his remarks by saying
that neither of the contracting governments
would ever be compelled to engage in an
unjust war in behalf of the other. The
greatest benefit to this country, he said,
would be that England and America Would
control the seas of the earth, which consist
of three-quarters of the earth's surface.
Other benefits he mentioned were the "open
door" in the orient, reliet from the present
unsatisfactory and irregular methods of
business transactions between the business
men of the two countries, the spread of the
English language throughout the world, the
extension of civilisation and English and
American institutions to all parts of the
earth, universal peace and good interna
tional laws, solid, unchanging commercial
conditions, and the upbuilding of American
The debate for the negative side was
closed by Mr. Savage, who handled the j
arguments made by each of the affirmative
speakers In a humorous manner. Replying 1
to the affirmative argument that an alliance
would promote the commercial Interests of
this country, he said:
"My friend of the affirmative la a wonder
ful statistician, and has told you how we
now sell everything everybody buys. I am
delighted to know It, but In the face of It I
fail to see why we should want to give
England half our profits.
"The second speaker for the affirmative."
continued Mr. Savage, taking up another
point In his argument, "has told you what
good neighbors the United States and Great
Britain are. I grant htm all that. But sup
pose you had a neighbor?and I guess you
have, for wa all have to live In a neighbor
hood?suppose you had a neighbor, is that
any reason for asking him to come and live
with you? One of my friend* has under
taken to show that if we want an alliance
with anybody we want it with Great
Britain. I don't deny his statement. It is
true; but we don't want an alliance with
Mr. Savage then reviewed the points
brought out by the negative and took his
seat. Mr. Dels consumed ftve minutes in
rebuttal argument, after which the Judges
DISCUSS CHINESE BILL
EXECUTIVE COUNCIL, A. P. OF L.,
APPEALS TO CONGRESS.
Bequests That Provisions of Scott Ex
clusion Act Be He-Enacted?Other
Matters Disposed Of.
The session of the executive council of
the American Federation of Labor yester
day lasted from V> o'clock In the morning
till nearly midnight.
A conference was held during the session
with Representative Kahn of Califor
nia, Edward J. Livernash of the California
Chinese exclusion commission. A. Furuseth,
Thomas F. Tracy and members of the ex
ecutive council present upon the alleged de
fects In the Piatt amendment as adopted by
the Senate, particularly that feature of the
re-enactment of the Scott act the validity
of which is now being attacked in the Su
preme Court. It was decided that Congress
be requested to re-enact the essential pro
visions of the Scott act by the specific
terms of the act in regard to several pro
visions of the-same so as to lift it out of
the realm of contention as to its legal ex
istence or non-existence.
As a sequence to the discussion yesterday
the council this morning passed resolutions
to the effect that "the House of Represen
tatives passed House bill ii-'t'ttt, a Chinese ex
clusion bill, which would exclude, and
which has the indorsement of the Pacific
coast, and of labor." and that "the Senate,
while expressing itself in favor of the ex
clusion of Chinese laborers, refused to pass
Senate bill and in its placed adopted
a bill which will not exclude, and which is
a notice to China to denounce the treaty
with the expectation of getting another
more favorable to the admission into the
I'nited States of Chinese coolies: therefore,
"the executive council of the American
Federation of Labor declares that in the
name of labor we thank the senators and
members in the House who have firmly
stood by House bill 9KO. as passed, and
Senate bill '.???*>, as reported, and urge them
to continue to stand for the same to the
end that we may have effective exclusion
laws enacted, or that the full responsibility
for ineffective legislation on this subject
may rest upon those who, while claiming
in the Senate substitute to give the coun
try an exclusion law, are providing an act
which will be sure to Involve the govern
ment in endless litigation and then fall to
exclude Chinese laborers."
