PRESIDENT GENERAL OF THE D. A. R. IS HARD AT WORK. Chairmen Nearly All Residents of the District?Proposed Amend ment to Constitution. Mrs. Matthew T. Scott, president gen eral of the National Society ot 'the Daugh ter* of the American Revolution, is apply ing herself closely to the selection or chairmen for committees which are to assist in carrying on the work of the older during the next two year*. 1 The committees to which Mrs. S'ott is j giving her first attention are those of local interest. All the work of the na tional society is done in the District. I he |chairmen of committees are nearly all i District women, while the membership is ! scattered throughout the country. It is considered necessary to have it this way. as most of the business is trans- j acted before the national board of ad ministration. This board meets monthly, making it a financial impediment for chairmen of committees to come from any great distance. One of the most numerously signed ! proposed amendments to the national j constitution, it is now known, asks for state organisations, and would take away from Washington about 530.000 a year spent here by the national society for clerk hire, printing, offices and for other expenditures of the society. This amendment, which was introduced this year, is to bo acted on at the next an nual congress of the I>. A. U. under the clause of the constitution which re quires amendments to be submitted a year in advance. Action by New York Society. It is reported in the minutes of the board meeting in February that the New York State Society at its conference or ganized a state society. This being con trary to the constitution of he national society, the matter was laid before the national board for approval, under the rulfs. The action was disapproved. The president general has appointed the following chairmen of committees: Magazine?Mrs. Ellen Spencer Mussey. with Miss Minnie Mickley as business manager ami Mrs. Elrov Avery of Cleve land as editor. To prevent desecration of the flag?Mrs. Howard L. Hodgkins. Conservation? Mrs. Amos G. Draper. Supervision?Mrs. George M. Small wood. The president general says she is pro ceeding slowly and surely in her work. ?'1 trust we are now all for the 'admln I istration. ' "I do "not like to think that any of j my Daughters are going to stand aloof from the ?administration." " she re marked. "I am not president genei.il of a faction; T am president general of the National Society of the D.

The Congressional Club will give a' tea in honor of Mrs. Scott tomorrow at the clubhouse on K street.

PROF. WOOD OF JOHNS HOPKINS j DECLINES UNIQUE JOB. Texas People Aroused Over Proposed Observatory?Professor Suggests Plan to Attract Martians. BALTIMORE. April 29.?The fame of Prof. Robert W. Woo<l. the well# known j physicist of the Johns Hopkins Lnivei- j sily. seeins to have spread to Texas. ; judging from the number of telegrams j which he lias received from Stamford, in i western Texas, asking him to assume charge of an observatory in those re- ] gions, the object of which is to signal j the people of the planet Mars. Inci- j dentally Dr. Wood suggested a plan to reach the planet Mars. Dr. Wood is at a loss to account for the reason of this steady flow of tele ; grams from that quarter. As far as he | can ascertain, he says, some one in that j section of the country seems to have j been greatly struck with a remark hu- ) morously made by Prof. Pickering of the HarVaid University the other day to the effect that with a large mirror sev eral miles long, which would cost about i $10,000,000. it would be possible for the ! inhabitants of the earth to signal their 1 brethren on Mar.<. i The Texan, says Dr. Wood, must have j discovered that he has been conducting a series of experiments with a mercurious mirror, and suggested to his fellow-citi I zens that Prof. Wood construct an ob i servatory at Stamford, for which the rcs | idents were to pledge ITiO.OOft. Prof.' Wood's Statement. Speaking of the matter, Prof. Wood said last night: . "As to the project of attracting the at-j tention of the Martians to the fact that i there are rational beings on the earth, it > seems to me that ir there are any who insist upon making usf conspicuous in this way it would be better to devise some simpler way than the construction of a mirror several miles in diameter. A i large black spot upon the white alkali1 plains could be constructed at much less expense, and would be as easily perceived by the Martians it they exist and have ; telescopes as powerful as ours. It would | be as easy to 'wink' signals with the i black spot as with a mirror of equal size, probably easier. "The spot, could be made in small sec tions of black cloth arranged to roll up on long cylinders, exposing the white ground underneath, the cylinders being operated simultaneously by electric mo- ' tors. I am unable to say how much four square miles of cloth would cost. You will have to consult the dry goods houses or the people who write arithmetic. "We should probably get no answer, for the Martians are supposedly older and wiser than we are. Large Mirror Impracticable. "I have never, and am not now giving any attention at all to the problem of signaling to Mars. My reply to repeated telegrams from Fort Worth, Tex., asking if I would consider the question of build ing a large mercury mirror in western Texas, if funds were provided, was as fol lows: ?? -Experiments with the small iO-inch mercury mirror are still in progress. It would be a great mistake to consider the construction of a larger instrument until the smaller one is perfected. Thank you for your offer of assistance, which is ap preciated.' "Xothing was mentioned in any of the telegrams about possible communication with Mars, aud4 was much surprised to hear that a dispatch had been sent out saving that I had decided t> carry out their plans ot attempting to establish com munication with auother planet. "1 have never for a moment believed that the mercury telescope would play any spectacular part in the acleni-e- of astronomy. The experiments were taken up during the summer months to ascer tain whether the mechanical difflcult'es could be overcome, and turned out so much better than I had any reason to ex pect that I have been thinking over the advisability of perhaps some day con structing a larger instrument, possibly H or H feet in diameter."

April the widows and orphans of army men need money, it should be provided by army men them selves. not by "spasmodic social stunts, afternoon teas and theatrical entertain ments." Tills is the opinion of Col. Charles W. Larned. professor of techni cal and military graphics at the West Point Military Academy, who addressed members of the Army Relief Society yes terday. Women who heard tlie address applauded the sentiment, but could not fully indotrse the plan, because it would do away with ilie usefulness of the so ciety. As a compromise it was suggest ed that Col. Larned inaugurate such a. move at West Point andx report on its progress and feasibility. "If," said Col. La-ned. "every second lieutenant contributes 10 cents per month, first lieutenant 15. captain 3*. and so on up to the lieutenant genera1, to gether with cents a mdtlth from esch private soldier, 3 cents from each corpo ral and o from each sergeant the yearly fund will amount to It was announced* at the meeting that the society had received S?2.U#?
