Notices wore sent to all societies, she reported, asking all those who desired to presint amendments to the constitution to send to the president at once. Not many were sent in. "As the report of the number of letters sent out and received would give but lit tie idea of the work or plans of any ofice," she said, "I have thought it not out of place to look ahead and see what might be done by the council and its workers." She added that the various councils all over the world stand pledged to assist in destroying the "white slave traffic." "What have you done for this line of work as a council?" she asked. "How far are we responsible when we willfully shut our eyes to the things that are wrong? Querry Propounded. "What are we going to do about it? Take the children working in the fac tories. The young cannot stand up to the life of the factory grind, and as a conse quence they are immature, undeveloped. broken down and in many cases paupers simply from the fact that their little lives have been crushed out of them. This also leads to the pauperization of society itself. which to the student is one of the most serious phases of the ques tion to be met today. Children subjected to premature labor are handed over to the future in an abnormal condition. They are depleted physically as well, as morally, and it behooves us to call a halt. "In the glass factories of Illinois hun dreds of children are employed. toiling for a mere pittance called a livelihood, while the state is making an effort to protect these children. The work is unfit for children, and day by day the state. through allowing the employment of these children, is becoming the execu tioner of .the children. "But you say, 'What is this to me? Am I my brother's keeper?' Yes, my friend, you are; for whatsoever affects humanity affects me. and you are interested in these matters. "The Juvenile Court, under the guidance of such master hands as Judge Lindsey of Denver. Col., who I consider one of God's noble men, if for nothing else than the efforts he has advanced for the saving of the street boy or the delinquent and desti lute boys, is a valuable institution. Listen as I have listened to.the stories of the boys he has saved, and then ask if it is your business or mine; and then, after thinking it all over, go to work and try to amend your juvenile court law and make'it some thing like the perfection of the Colorado law. Dependents and Delinquents. "Let us look to the care of the dependent and delinquent children, and adults as well. Superintendent Bodine. the compulsory ed ucation officer of Chicago, has made the statement that 75 per cent. of the cases of truancy among dependent and delinquent children are due to the parents and their environments caused through divorce, de sertion and dissipation. He also says the social conditions revealed in the dties and towns enforcing the compulsory edecation laws are a disgrace to modern civilIsation. Marriage is not a failure. It is the incom petent, feeble-minded persons who are not fit to marry and bring children into the world who are failures. "Desertion is the poor man's divorce, and there are thousands of men who desert wives and families to leave them at the mercy of the world. "Is this work for you, my sister? Listen once more at the cry that is now ringing over this vast country of ours. It is the cry of Rachel mourning for her children and refusing to be comforted because they are naught. "In the state of Illinois last year 7.000 deaths occurred. and from an economic standpoint this is estimated as a loss of 36,0I00t)ii. Dr. Webster of the state board of health estimates that three-fourths of these cases find their origin and their incubation and their development in the homes of the state, and that one-fourth are from the workshops. "Then we should see that these homes are bright, clean and pure, no damp base ments, dark cellars and rooms and filthy inhabitants. "Is this the work of today?

Good Work is Great. Good work is always great work, and great work cannot' be done in a small way. "Light has to be warm in order to con vert a snow-crystal into a dewprop. Intel lectual brightness has been overdrawn. There is nothing so brilliant as a day in midwinter, but sap does not begin to stir until the thermometer goes up." "Let us work with a will, you in your way, while I shall work in mine, but let us not forget that it will take our united ef forts to help in thits council work, for we must remember that in the same way God clears away the snow drifts by sending a separate sunbeam to tackle each specific snowflake, so we are all needed. "Then let us remember that contempla tion and communion which do not lead to action have no vital force, and let this council be remembered not for what may here be said, but for the result~s which may follow its sessions."~ Mrs. MilLer's address was received with generous ap)probation. Receipts and Disbursements, Mrs. Lillian Hollister, national treasurer, reported total receipts of the organization for the year as $l,889.75; total disburse ments, $1,127.44, leaving a balance on hand of $1,135.44. She stated that two new societies had come into the council since the last execu tive meeting; the National Woman's Free Baptist Association and the Union City local council. Mrs. Hollister stated that she thought the organization was in a thriving and healthy- condition.

Mrs. Mary Wood Swift and Edward Markham. National Secretary. The national secretary, Mrs. Isabella Quinlin, Is a Galesburg woman, who has been admitted to the bar and practices her profession in her home city, though not her native city. Mrs. Quinlin has made quite a reputation in her profession, and has the distinction of being the only woman mem ber of the Knox county, Ill., bar. At the time of her admission she received exten sive notice in the legal papers, in which there was predicted a future of promise for tbis blooming "ting of the law." Possessing a high order of plaform ora tory, she was chosen as leader of the Rath bone Sisters, the only purely fraternal or ganization among women. With all these special qualifications for professional and public life, it is interesting to know that Mrs. Quinlin is fully domesti mited, and scorns no small service to her husband and children. In manner, gentle as a child; in voice, sweet and fascinating, she is a fine illustration to silence the dis truntled who e rer fear that innovations in the lives of women will "destroy their womanliness."

In the Organisation Before Next Sum mer-Extensive Preparations Un der Way-Epiiway Facilities. TOKYO. April 11.-Japan is meeting the Russian plan of reorganization and rein forcement of its-Manchurian armies- with an extensive expedition from its own mili tary organization. The details and figures are carefully con cealed of what seems to be a plan to dou ble the present army units, but it is re liably estimated that by autumn next the total military organization will exceed a million men actually employed in the field. The fighting force is roughly estimated at 700,000 men, with Increases largely in the Infantry and artillery, although an en largement in the cavalry branch Is also contemplated. As a result of the manufacture at the arsenals in Japan, together with captures and purchases of guns, it is predicted that this year will see a Japanese artillery su perior to that of the Russian, in quality as well as numerically, and it is confi dently believed that the Russians will be incpable of overcoming these numerical disadvantages. Wherever railway improvements are pos sible they will be carried out when Japn will be sufficiently strong to take and hold Harbin and simultaneously continue opera tions against the Russian forces to the eastward of that city.

Young, trumpeter, Troop H, 13th Cavalry. U. S. army, indicted for nan slaughter in connection with the death of Policeman John Jacob Smith, who was shot with the wad of a blank cartridge the even ing of the 4th of July last while at his post of duty on the Aqueduct bridge, mounted the witness stand in Criminal Court No. 1 this afternoon to testify in his own behalf. Young declared that from a distance of eighteen feet he fired one shot, using a blank cartridge, at Policeman Smith. The act was "for a joke." He was in ignorance that he had shot. any one until the following morning. The witness ran away from the bridge because he thought he might be'ar rested for disorderly conduct in having dis charged a firearm. and for fear that the policeman might shoot him, not knowing that the soldier's pistol was loaded with blank cartridges. Contrasted with the story told by Young was that related by Policeman' Smith, while on the operating table at Georgetown Uni versity Hospital. within fifteen minutes after the shooting. This statement was made to a sergeant of the police force, who repeated it today in court under -oath, and was to the effect that the soldier had fired three shots at the policeman. The first shot was fired at a distance of six feet. The policeman advanced and was almost against the muzzle of the weapon when the third shot, "which did ~ the business," in the words of the deceased, was fired. Testimony was introduced by the pi'ose cution to show the result of experiments in the firing of blank cartridges at clothing for the purpose of proving that at a greater distance -than a few feet the- wads do not make holes in such clothing. It is expected that the trial will be con cluded tomorrow. Ruling on Admissibility. Within fifteen minutes after the shooting occurred Sergt. Henry Schneider of the sev enth precinct saw Policeman Smith at the Georgetown University Hospital. The wounded man was on the operating table. At this point a question arose as to the admissibility of the evidence the govern ment expected to adduce from Sergt. Schneider, so the jury was directed to leave the court room while the point was dis cussed. The court ruled that the evidence was admissible, the defense noted an ex ception and the jury was recalled. Sergt. Schneider testified that while on the op erating table Policeman Smith said to the witness: "I'm done for-I'm shot in the stomach." The wounded man insisted that he was going to die. Continuing, he told Sergeant Schneider that he had had some trouble with soldiers on the Aqueduct bridge, espe cially with three of them who were ob structing the footpath. He ordered them to move on and they complied. Policeman Smith then turned his attention to some other people, who walked away. By that time the soldiers were back on the footpath. He again ordered "Move on!" One of the group said: "Give me a chance to make a cigarette." The policeman shoved him. Thereupon another soldier announced: "Hold on. I've got you covered," and .produced a revolver. Sergeant Schneider testified that Po c-. man Smith told him the soldier firef ee shots. Smith was about six feet frdeitlb soldier when the first. shot was fired. He. advanced and was almost against the muz sle of the pistol. when the last shot was fired. That one, he said, while on the'oper ating table, "did the business." The witness saw Young at No. I station house. The prisoner declared that he had Introduction of Testimony. When the trial was resumed this morn ing, Assistant United -States Attorney Tur ner called Sister Edward of Georgetown University Hospital as a witness for the government. In replies to questions, she said she picked up Policeman Smith's cloth ing from the floor of the hospital and made a bundle of the garments. She did not dis turb the clothing or the holes in it. The witness surrendered the bundle to Police man Smith's little son, who called for it. Sister Edwar~d was not- cross-examined. The second witness today was James W. Wcrdeli of 3003 M street. He testified that the evening of the 4th of July last he saw a man run away from the north end of the Aqueduct bridge and go through the Key mansion. A moment later the atten tion of the witness was attracted to Police man Smith. -He ran over to the latter. Smith was pressing his hands to his stom ach. He exclaimed to the witness: "Get me to a hospital as soon as you~ can. I've been shot by a soldier." Later the .witness looked about the Key mansion, but did not locate the man he had seen running in that direction. Another witness called by the prosecution was John M. Ward. He was attracted to the scene of the shooting and found Police man Smith holding his side. The police man remarked that he had been shot. After Smith had oeen received at the hos pital the witness noticed a hole through the shirt and a hole through the undershirt worn by the policeman. Soldier Boards the Car. Joseph A. C. Fought, a motorman in the employ of the Capitol Traction Company, told the jury that on reaching the Georgetown end of the line about 9:40 o'clock the evening of July 4 he heard that Policeman Smith had been shot, On the return trip a soldier, in khaki trousers and blue flannel shirt, but hatless and without blouse, boarded the car at Washington Cir cle. Upon information received from his conductor the witness, upon reaching 14th street and Pennsylvania avenue, blew his police whistle. Policeman Mellen respond ed and arrested the soldier passenger. The next witness was isaac B. Talbott, conductor of the train of Capital Traction Company's cars of which Fought was mo torman July 4 last. His testimony was sub stantially the same as that given by Mo torman Fought. Policeman Archibald Mellen of No. 1 po lice precinct described the arrest of Young by him on the avenue car. The prisoner walited to know the reason for the arrest. and the policeman explained that it was because be presented a disorderly appear ance. After Robert P. Crowley bad stated that he found a khaki blouse in the canal at 31st street the morning of July 5, William Moore, colored. an emploeye of the sewer department, Ditriet of Columbia, testified that. he found an army Colt's revolver in a catch basin at 25th and L streets, The witnes turned the. weapon over to Fore. man J. Fitspatrick df the sewer department. The latter was then called as a. witness. He related that he receiv'ed the pitol froma Moore and surrendered it to U teemat Boyle of the police deptaretme. The prosecution followed the- delivery of the revolver from the sewer to the court room by calling' upon Lieutenant Boyle to testify that he reeitved the firearam o Foreman FPttpatrick and sorub ie Lieutenant Jordan, in commando the see Jrecinct, in whiek the shooting eo The morning of the 5th of Jgly rgt Edward 5.

He ex plained that as the witness was the first person who had treated him deeently since he was arrested he would make a clean breast of the whole afEair 'to Lieut. Jordan. At this point: the prosecution announced the close of His testifony in chief. - Ops sg I Delense. Attorney James B. Archer, jr., made the opening address to the jury for the de fense. He told of how Young, a soldier, had seen blank cartridges used so frequently at Fort Myer that he considered them abso lutely harmless. The defendant had been celebrating the oourth of July by discharg ing his revolver. - ' on the Aqueduct bridge the -dohng of that day he loaded his revolver with the last blank cartridges he had with htm Sergeant Hall, a mem. ber of Yohng'$ parrty, had a controversy with Policemah.g tb. . Young had nothing to do with the difficulty. Smith ordered the party to wove op, and then passed along and spoke to sqme other persons. He re turned to the gi'dip of soldiers and again ordered them tp move on. Hall admonihhed the officer to wait until a cigarette- could be rolled. Smith shoved Hall and the latter fell down. At this time, according to At torney Archer, Yong was in the roadway of the bridge, fully eighteen feet from Smith and the party of .sadiers. Young, holding his revolver high, red one shot. He did not Intend to t tpe omcer, nor did he think it possible.o 'a so. "There is, at least, grave doubt that the shot fired by Young produced the wound from which Policeman Smith suffered." Attorney Archer declared, "and I think we can prove that it did not do'so." -Continuing, the attorney explained to the jury that Young, realiziag that he might have been guilty of disorderly, conduct, and thinking that, having fired at a poi1ce man, the latter might return the compli ment- with a . ball cartridge, ran away. Young, his counsel asserted, was ignorant of the fact4hat Policeman Smith had been shot untif he was informed of that fact by LIeut. Jordain.' Then the prisoner re lated all that he' knew of the occurrence. He was not drunk, "and remembered clearly just what had taken place, as outlined. The defendant, it was further said, has always borne an. bXcellent reputation fOr peace and good order. Trumpeter Young Testifies. "Samuel R. Toung, trumpeter, Troop 11, 15th U. S. Cavalry," was the name and oc cupation of the first witness called by c":uu sel for the defense. The defendant told in detail of his doings the 4th of last July. The Declaration of In dependence hal;been read to the men at Fort Myer in the morning and there was a half barrel of beer served in the quarters of Troop lH. In the afternoon Young was a guest atthe house of a man who resided near Fort Myer, more beer was served there. Th defentnt- remembered that he had somelank rtridges, so he procured his pistol'and tiadb some noise :i honor of the day. While riding to the bridge he fired his pistol from the car. In crossing the bridge Yong's pa%y met a corporal return ing from The Presiaent's stables with some horses. For a Joke, Young fired point blank at the cerporal and the latter was not harmed. The party stopped on the foot path between 130''and 140 feet from the -north en&6f the 'Sridge. Policeman Smith came up,nerddred' them to move on, and pushed Swrgeant Hall, who fell down. A few minutes ; ter,. witness said, the policemapv. reiitrned. Young was then some Aistasce dr-em the party. He pointed his revolver it tb direction. of the police man. and-ggaid; .'"on't draw your club," or something ,t0rIJat affet.: He fired his revolver, as a jq having no idea that he could not sy hurt any one. He at once realized ?t ad'tMe had shot in the ilrection of tiya polic@man,, the policeman might shoot back with a ball, cartridge. So Young r" :off,' either lost or' threw away his blouse and got rid of the pistol. 'Blue Print Plan Introduced. Using a blue _rint of the plan of the Aqueduct, the defendant explained just how the seieral parties to the affair stood. : "I didn't then know the policeman had been shot," Young declared. He com plained that he -bad been treated roughly at the first precinct station, and for that reason he d<eclined to tell the policemen there anything. Te could not learn from them why he hda been arrested. The next morning Lieutenant Jordan, an old soldier, called: He treated the witness kindly. From Lieutenant Jordan he learned for the first time that Policeman Smith had been shot. "I was thunderstruck," Young t'old the jury. "I could not see how a blank car tridge could have hurt him, nor could ] see how a ball cartridge could have gotten in the revolver.~ 1 told Lieutenant Jordan I would make a clean breast of the affair and tell hini all I knew, and said I hoped they would find the pistol, for It would help me by showing that blank cartridges only had been used." Further, the witness said that the sol diers at Fort Myer used blank cartridges In the riding hall every day. The prosecution made an effort on cross examination to secure from the defendant an admissoon as to where he had thrown away the revolver, and was unsuccessful. As a Character Witness. William S. Shallenberger, second assistant postmaster general of the United States, appeared as a character witness in behalf of Young. Mr. Shallenberger declared that the defendant had always borne an excel lent reputation. Attorney Archer read the affidavits of eight other perspns In .support of the de fendant's good reputation. Samuel H. Stride was examined regard ing the occurrences on the Aqueduct bridge, but nothing radiugily new was d veloped. by his testimony. The defense rested at this point and the government. havilig no witnesses in rebut tal, consideration was given to the prayers for instructions counsel desIre the court to give the jury. .During this discussion it appeared that counsel for the defense take the view that the death of Policeman Smith was caused by the operation performed on him at the hospital, and not by the wound caused by t)e blagg cartridge wad. The Airst summitig-up address to the jury was made lAaqtnt United States At torney Tu4r . o'clock an adjourn ment was 4lebsU10 o'block tomorrow morning.______ AmmCfAN ANATOWS First USeena gg=CanSfm e in Phila delphia Today.

The Court of Appeals today in an opinion by Chief Justice Shepard denied the peti tion of Fannie R. Morgan, who sought an order directing her husband, Charles R. Morgan, to pay o*er to her a sudicient sum of money to enable her to prosecute an ap peal from a decree of 'divorce granted by the District Supreme Court against her. Without deciding the question of the right of the court, in the exercise of sound dis cretion, to require a husband, who is ap pollee In a divorce proceeding, to pay the appellant money to prosecute an appeal. thb Appellate Court decides that it has no jurisdiction to exercise such power in the case presented by the petition. The court acquires complete jurisdiction of an appeal, the opinion states, only when the transcript of record has been filed; the mere filing of an appeal bond does not com pel the appellant to prosecute the appeal. as he may decide to abandon it. An order compelling the appellee to furnish the funds for an appeal should be applied for to the trial court, whose power to make such an order was recently decided in the Sparks case. The opinion concludes by denying the pe tition, for the reason that to grant the prayer the court would have to act with out the knowledge of the facts to be ob tained from the transcript of record, which is necessary to the exercise of reasonable discretion, and also in advance of the hear ing be compelled to reverse in part the de cree from which the appeal is sought to be prosecuted. Lee Against District. The Police Court ~decision in the case of John W. Lee against the District of Colum bia, involving the snow-law regulation, was today reversed by the Court of Appeals in an opinion by Mr. Justice Morris. The grounds for reversal are the -court's opin ion in the Coughlin case and that the Com missioners were without lawful authority to make such regulation, as Congress had re served to itself the exclusive power over the subject matter. As the law now stands, the court says, the duty is upon the Com missioners to remove such obstructions from the sidewalks, and they cannot escape the performance of that duty by att.mpting to impose it upon individual citizens. The cause is remanded to the Police Court, with directions to vacate its judg ment and discharge the defendant. The mandate was ordered withheld by the court until its further order, that the Commis sioners may have the opportunity to peti tion the United States Supreme Court for a writ of certiorari, that the highest tribu nal in the land may review the opinion of the District Court of Appeals. INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE. Regarded as Best Plan to Settle Mo roccan Differences. BERLIN, April 11.-The German govern ment continues to lay before the Sultan of Morocco the advantages of requesting the powers to agree among themselves by an international conference on the things that they would like him to do. These include acting on the suggestions for the syste matic payment of the foreign debts; bring ing about an adjustment of the tariff and taking steps to properly police the country. Although no official confirmation is ob taipable at the foreign office it is under stood that strong expectations are held there that the sultan will accept the idea of an international conference. What is said officially is that Germany would accept such an invitation as offering the best way for a settlement of the differences in views between France andA Germany.
