COMMITTEE REPORTS
RESOLUTION REGARDING THE
COINAGE OF SILVER DOLLARS.
Introduction of Metric System Into
United States Recommended?
Address on Education.
General discussion of matters of commer
cial Interest dominated In the meeting of
the National Board of Trade at the New
Willard today. The program called for the
reading of reports from special and stand
ing committees, the election of officers and
the consideration of ami action on the pro
gram and the reports of the committees.
At 12:30 the members met the President
at the White House and paid their respects.
The meeting was called to order at 10
o'clock, and with the exception of a recess
between 12 and 2 o'clock has been since in
continuous session. Dr. A. P. Fardon, dele
gate from the Washington Board of Trade,
on behalf of his organisation invited the
members to make free use> of t-he
the Washington Board of Trade. In The
Star building, and placed at their_<asp*wa?
the facilities of the local board for obtain
ing any Information that may be needed.
The president made acknowledgment of the
favor on behalf of the national board.
Commerce and Labor.
The first business of the session this
morning was the reading of the report of
the committee on the Department of Com
merce and Labor by Mr. E. R. Ward of the
PJHladelphia board of trade. For many
years past the national board lias been an
ardent advocate of the establishment of a
Department of Commerce and Labor, and it
Is said that much of this credit for the
creation of the department belongs to the
b?The'report of Mr. Ward consisted largely
of a history of the movement set on foot
by the national board for the establlshmen
of the department. Resolutions were in
troduced affecting the future relations of
the board with the department and pro
viding for the appointment of a committee
of five. The resolutions were adopted.
A resolution was adpoted providing for
the Introduction of the metric system by

committee on laws advising the board to
retain its present organization and lnot tile
articles of incorporation. This report was

S. Wise of New York, the chair
man of the law committee, made an ex
e? asaaa s
MTwise^ explanation. The^ district^ of
laW' Mr. Marvel Skeptical.
Mr. Josiah Marvel of Wilmington. Del
declared that It would be necessary to
amend the Constitution of the unl?d
States before any law could be enacted e
cept an amendment to that of_ the 1District
of Columbia. Mr. Francis B. Thurber of the
States Export Association said he
did ivot see why an amendment to the Con;
committee on judiciary would ,^e?n
a bill to come before them which wouia con
fiict with the Constitution.
Mr. Wise said the author of the bill now
h',nrp roneress Mr. Palmer of Illinois, is
a lawyer of some standing, and he was
quite capable of drawing up ^hf?ph'nadll
blll. Mr. Charles J. Cohen of the Phlladel
phia Trades League made a mo"?11
recommit the report to the committee. M
Thurber contested this motion on the
ground that the matter had been under
motion would be unfair to Mr. Palmer. The
and was adopted.
Against Coinage of Silver Dollars.
Ex-Gov. Pattlson of Pennsylvania, chair
men of the committee on currency reform,
reported a resolution providing that Con
gress be asked to enact such legislation as
will discontinue the coinage of silver dol
lars authorize the coinage of such subsid
iary coin as may be necessary from silver
hulllon purchased by the Secretary of the
Treasury and from silver dollars, directing
the Secretary of the Treasury to, maintain
at all times the parity with gold of the
legal tender silver dollars remaining out
standing. and to exchange gold for such
silver dollars, and to provide for other
financial matters of Interest to the banking
interests of the country.
The resolutions were adopted.
Mr Q Waldo Smith of the New "ork
board of trade and transportation reported
from the committee on merchant marine a
resolution which provided that there exists
an urgent commercial and industrial neces
sity for a material increase of American
shipping in foreign trade, and an adequate
merchant marine is of inestimable value
both In time of war and In time of peace
therefore the national board of trade should
approve the recommendation by President
Roosevelt for a special commission to in
vestigate and report at an early date as to
desirable legislation.
Mr. Henry W. Peabody of Boston ex
plained to the board the necessity for the
adoption of the resolution. He referred
to the passage of a bill through the House
within the last twenty-four hours.
This resolution was also adopted.
Addre?s on Education.
Dr. W. J. Holland of the Carnegie Insti
tution made an extended address on edu
cation before the board at this juncture.
He urged the establishment of courses of
commercial studies In the institutions of
learning throughout the country. He sug
gested that the study of Spanish and
geography be given students In colleges
and universities. At the conclusion of his
address President Randall expressed to Dr.
Holland the thanks of the board.
Mr. A. T. Henderson of Pittsburg then
presented a resolution from the committee
on higher commercial education, providing
for the addition to the curricula of colleges
and universities a course of study for higher
commercial education which shall embrace
a knowledge of the modern languages re
quired In the traffic of the world, political,
economic and geographic sciences which
shall equip Americans for competition with
the best Europeans in the world's com
merce. Mr. Thurber seconded the resolu
tion and It was adopted unanimously.
Mr. J. R. Carter of the Boston Mer
chants' Association presented a report from
the committee on consular service urging
the reformation of the service. This report
was also adopted unanimously.
Crop Statistics.
The principal matter of Interest which
came up during the afternoon session yes
terday was the report submitted by C. B.
Murray, chairman of the committee on crop
statistics, which discussed the standing
recommendation that government crop re
ports be collected either by the census bu
reau or the Department of Agriculture
alone. The opinion seemed to prevail that
the bureau of statistics of the Agricultural
Department Is the better prepared to do tho
work. The efficiency of the reports was dis
cussed in the report, which found that "the
crop reports are deserving of favorable rec
ognition and acceptance, as representing all
fajjto obtainable. Criticism. It was stated,
t/id not always been "Indulgent."
That the government might be better able
to obtain the facts the. report recommended
that a committee, probably the crop statis

Information.
The report was adopted and the commit
tee continued for another year.
Before this had been done, however, H.
8. Grimes of the Grain Dealers' Associa
tion challenged a statement contained In
the report "that we expect too much of
the government." "How can we expect too
much of the government on such vital
points," he asked. "Above all things." he
continued, "we want accurate reports. Tako
the late cotton report. It Is almost perfect.
Cotton raising is limited to five states,
grain to twenty-flve. Why cannot we have
as accurate grain reports as cotton re
ports."
Mr. Murray replied that the difference
was in the basis ?? obtaining the informa
tion. "How can the government estimate
the crop when thg, fanner himself cannot
estimate Ms own cl'op/'^he asked, to which
Mr. Grimes suggested that since It was the

Urge Better Freight Facilities?Would
Be-Suiclde Thought to Be Demented.
In accordance yr(th resolutions adopted
at the last sessloi of,the organisation
President B. T. Jareney *nd Mr. G. G. Bo
teler of the commerce committee of the
Georgetown Citizens' Association yesterday
dispatched a letter to President Murray of
the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company
In regard to the freight facilities of the
western section of the District. The com
munication calls attention to the corre
spondence with former President Loree,
and the fact that he promised definite
action that would give the business inter
ests of Georgetown the desired facilities.
The officials of the association urge the
immediate use by the railroad of the tracks
on Water street, and state that the mer
chants and residents feel that the tracks
are detrimental to the business Interests of
the west end. as well as a damage to the
property on the street on which they are
laid. The letter further recites that "unless
some satisfactory arrangement is made for
their use the association will be obliged to
take such action at this Congress as will
force the company to abandon its rights
and remove the tracks."
It is further stated that this declaration
is not meant as a threat, but that the asso
ciation will do anything in reason to ob
tain the long-needed facilities. The aim
elation Is determined not to allow the
traoks to remain unused by the company,
and thereby prevent others from occupying
the street. The communication, in conclu
sion states that several manufacturing
industries would have been located in
Georgetown In the last eighteen months if
the assurance could have been given that
the tracks would be put in use.
Joseph McPherson, familiarly known as
"Uncle Mac." a colored character of the
western section of the city, died Monday
night at his home, 1018 Valley street.
"Uncle Mac" was born at Leesburg, Va.,
and was a slave of the Clagett family. He
was in Ignorance as to his age. Funeral
services will be held tomorrow afternoon
a*. 2 o'clock at Mount Zion M. E. Church, of
which he was a class leader for many
yetft-s.
It was stated this morning at the George
town University Hospital that John Brltt,
who attempted to end his life Monday
afternoon by jumping from the Pennsyl
vania avenue bridge into Rock creek, is
recovering from the injuries he sustained
in landing on the thick ice. The action of
Brltt since his arrival at the hospital has
lead the physicians to believe that he is
mentally unbalanced. It was stated that
Britt had been an inmate of the hospital
for the Insane.
The funeral of Mrs. Cora Walker, whose
death occurred Monday afternoon, took
place this afternoon at S o'clock from her
late residence. 3088 P street northwest.
Mr. James E. Smith of Fort Myer, Va.,
will address the students of the Llnthicum
Institute and their friends this evening at
that institution on the Philippines, from
which islands he recently returned to this
country.
Indictments by Grand Jury.
The grand jury today presented to Jus
tice Pritchard in Criminal Court No. 1 an In
dictment for false pretenses against Isabel
M. Perkins, alias Mrs. G. G. Dewey, alias
Isabel Morgan. The defendant Is charged
with obtaining money from L&nsburgh &
Bro. of this city by offering a check f<>r
$150 on a Springfield bank, in payment of
a bill of $56, and receiving from them the
balance, about $84, in cash. When the
check was presented for payment It was
found to be worthless.

vited guests in the reception rooms of the

many of whom are prominent in both social
and political life In Washington, had as
sembled to enjoy the festivities.

ident Charlton M. Clark, who, after a few
remarks concerning the organization, Its
objects and purposes, announced that the
orator of the evening. Representative John
Sharp Williams, by reason of sudden ill
ness, was unable to be present. Mr. Clark
thereupon introduced Representative James
T. Lloyd of Missouri, whom he had asked
to deliver an address in his stead.
By way of Introduction Mr. Lloyd created
considerable laughter by relating the story
of the "neutral attitude of the" man from
Missouri." He said he would not enter Into
a discussion of the so-called issues between
north and south. He preferred to believe
that a greater tie of unity exists today be
tween the two sections than at any other
period since that unfortunate struggle was
ended. He believed each of the two sec
tions is capable of solving its own problems
and that the south will solve hers In time.
He advanced the Idea that no southerner
should revive the dying embers of sectional
animosity or rekindle the smothered fires
which have been already extinguished.
In conclusion the speaker paid a tribute
to the south and her heroes and attested
her devotion and loyalty to the national
emblem.
At the conclusion of Mr. Lloyd's address
President Clark announced a musical pro
gram, which consisted of numbers by Prof.
Ernest Lent, 'celloist; Mrs. Lent, pianist;
Lillian Chenoweth, contralto; Lucille
