To t*e Editor of The Btsr: Tt Is a sad commentary on the George Washington University If it is now In a condition the counterpart of what was said to be the pecuniary status of Co lumbian University when It was sub merged Into the George Washington Uni versity and made a non-sectarian and national university. The friends of the change of name honestly thought It would redound to the glory of the father of his country. George Washington, and place the university on a pinnacle such as no other like school could attain, both as to curriculum, numbers and pecuniary basis, as well as having the eclat of continued election and selection of the most emi nent Instructors, professors and lecturers in this country and Europe. As an alumna of the university I regret the necessity for the retirement of any ot the professors. I, for one, voice my ob jection to the suggestion made that Con gress endow the institution for the bene fit of a each bona fide resident of the District of Columbia. The benefits ac cruing from this change would pot be as far-reaching as the circumference cov ered now. although limited in some lines to sex. If we have any other change in the university let it be a resumption of the dear old name, "the Columbian Uni versity," which grew and expanded from the nucleus of Columbian College, and let It be co-educatlonal. Let the -women, home makers and home supporters have a chance in this our National Capital to aspire to and attain intellectual heights. If it is only for culture or the pleasure of straying Into the realm of books to know things. Do not require of them that they shall coin their knowledge any more than you would bind the men to use as a profession or a support any or every intellectual branch pursued until he se cured a diploma. Let the women?Daughters of the Amer ican Revolution?who secured the change now rally to the pecuniary support of the George Washington University. ^ EMMA REBA BAILEY.

ALEXANDRIA Schultz Murder Trial to Be Opened Tomorrow. FIRST OF FOUR SUSPECTS Mrs. Gillette, Sister of Victim, Present for Hearing. MEMORIAL FOE CONFEDERATES Address by Representative Carlin Tonight?Two Bitten by Dogs. Police Court Cases. Special Correspondence of The Star. ALEXANDRIA. Va? May 24. 1900. ? Calvin Johnson, one of the four negroes held for the murder of Walter F. Schultz, the Chicago artist, will be placed on trial for his life at 10 o'clock tomorrow morn ing' In the corporation court, Judge L. C. Barley presiding. The following fifty talesmen have been summoned from which to pick a jury of twelve: Lorenzo Wolford, S. W. Pitts, Courtney Acton. Harry D. Kir, M. R. CVSulIlvan, Martin E. Greene. William C. Cox, E. L. Allen, H. E. Gentry, E. S. Leadbeater. Frank M. Martin, J. W. Riley, C. M. Lennon, J. Frank Myers, J. Frank Peverlll. James Bayne, David E. Robey, M. A. Hanrahan, Joseph Arm strong, William Jolly, Walter M. Beach, Samuel L. Monroe, Edward E. Lawler, Louis Drelfus, Moses Morris. Alexander Bowie, Charles H. Fletcher, William L. Rammel, Joseph L. Padgett. Elmer L. Spittle, John Crllly, E. Goldsmith, Maury W. Gaines, Jonathan Matthews, E. J. Fleming, Moxley T. Ervln, Frank M. Adims, J. S. Douglas, jr.; C. P. Waller, jr.; J. William May, Frank Mlchelback, Herbert J. Baker, R. H. Atkinson, H. H. Newton, F. H. Harper, George T. Caton. William C. Chauncey, John H. Nayfor, Thomas C. Hoy and William M. Rear don, jr. In the event a panel cannot be secured from the above an additional number of talesmen will be summoned. Common wealth Attorney Brent says that he does not believe that any trouble will be ex perienced in securing a jury, although several other attorneys are of the opinion that the contrary will be the case. It is regarded as more than probable that most of the day will be consumed In get ting a Jury. Schultz Family Represented. The Schultz family will be represented at the trial by Mrs. A. H. Gillette of Sioux City, Iowa, sister of the murdered man, who arrived here yesterday. She came here at the instance of Common wealth Attorney Samuel G. Brent and wijl testify that the murdered man was her brother, and she will also testify to his habits. This will kill one of the strong points for the defense?that Is, that the murdered man was not Schultz. Mrs. Gillette, when seen this morning at her boarding house by a reporter, said she knew but little about the case, except what she had read in the newspapers. She added that her brother left home April 28, 11)08. and had been traveling around the country for his health and do ing work at various places. Mrs. Gillette said that the last time she heard from him was December 20. 1908, and at that time she mailed him a book entitled "Angles In Art." In speaking about her brother she said he was very abstemious in his habits and was surprised that the theory had been advanced that he was drinking. When asked what she believed brought her brother here she said that he had possibly come to this city- to visit Mount Vernon. Mrs. Gillette says he fre quently wandered alone and seemed to be perfectly fearless in regard to traveling, and in this way accounted for hlR pres ence In that part of the city where he met such a tragic death. She was surprised to learn also that when the body was found he had a heavy beard, as she said he was very precise about his appearance and kept himself in neat condition. Her statement regarding this was borne out by the condition of the body when found. She also stated that he was very particular regarding his clothes. Parents Almost Heartbroken. Mrs. Gillette says her mother and father have been almost heartbroken since the murder, and the mother Is failing very rapidly since she read the account of the brutal story of her son's death, as re lated by Henry Smith, who turned state's evidence. She also said her mother has since that time lost several pounds of llesh. Mrs. Gillette said her brother was thir ty?three years old and -unmarried and followed the profession of artist since early youth. For a time he worked In Chicago, his work consisting of oils, and he also did some work in black and white. In speaking of the opening of the trial tomorrow. Mrs. Gillette desired to know If there would be much of a crowd. She expressed aversion at so much notoriety, as she said such crdwds would doubtless be there out of morbid curiosity. Mrs. Gillette has not yet fully determined whether or not she will remain throughout the trial, although she will stay here-, several days. I'pon her return she will carry back with her her brother's suit case and also his trunk, together with their contents. Commonwealth Attorney Brent this afternoon called on Mrs. Gillette and informed her what she woirtd be ex pected to testify to on the stand. Shu will probably take the stand at the beginning of the trial. Mayor Paff also called on Mrs. Gillette today to pay hU respects. As soon as the trial of Johnson la completed that of the other negroes will be talien up separately, and the trial of Henry Smith will be the last. Separate juries will be secured for each case. Seergt. Cox today completed the work of summoning the talesmen from which a Jury will 'be procured. The members of the police department, under the di rection of Chief Goods, today finished up their work of getting evidence and securing the witnesses. Attorney Lewis H. Machen, who represents Johnson, has also had a large number of witnesses summoned. It Is expected that the trial will attract a large crowd of spectators. Confederate Memorial. The graves of the Confederate dead in the cemeteries In and around the city wero this morning decorated by commit tees from R. E. Lee Camp, Confederate Veterans, In accordance with the annual custom of the camp. This afternoon the Confederate monument at Washington and Prince streets was decorated by a committee from the camp and a commit tee of members of the ladies' auxiliary. A stand was also erected on the south side, at which place memorial exercises will take place at <t o'clock this evening, when Representative Charles C. Carlin of this city will deliver the annual me morial address. Preceding the ceremonies, a short pa rade will be held, in which the veterans, the Alexandria Light Infantry and a drum corps will participate. Invocation will be pronounced by Rev. W. J. Mor ton, rector of Christ P. E. Church, and several songs will be given by a choir, under the direction of Miss Rotchford. At the conclusion of the exercises at the monument the gathering will repair to Christ Church cemetery, where the mound of the unknown Confederate dead will be strewn with flowers, a salute will be fired and taps will be sounded. The local police have been notified that a handsome oil portrait of Speaker Jo seph Cannon, supposed to have been stolen more than a year ago from George Matthews, a Washington artist, has been found. Mr. Matthews left It on a car of the Washington. Alexandria and Mount Vernon Railway Company, and it was turned into the company's Washington office, where it has since been held, awaiting identification. The painting is said to be valued at 1750. Strange to, say. the portrait was never called for. al-' though It was advertised by the rail way company. Thomas D.

AIMS TO END L0N6 DISPUTE FISHERIES QUESTION TO GO TO COURT OF ARBITRATION. Controversy to Oo Before Eminent Jurists, Who Will Be at The Hague in September. The Secretary of State Is informed that the court of arbitration to decide the questions at issue between the United States and Great Britain in regard to the northeastern fisheries will begin Its ses sions at The Hague in September next. The members of the court are Dr. Lam masch, professor of international law at the University of Vienna, president; Dr. Drago of the Argentine Republic, author of the Drago doctrine; Dr. Lohman of the Netherlands, Judge George Gray of the United States circuit court and Chief Justice Fitspatrick of Canada. An Old Controversy. A special agreement was signed Janu ary 27. 1909, by the United States and Great Britain submitting to arbitration at The Hague the controversy as to the North Atlantic coast (or northeastern) fisheries. In 1818 the United States and Great Britain made a treaty, by which certain rights of fishery in common with "British fishermen, which had been claimed by the United States for its people under the treaty of peace of 1783. were recog nized by Great Britain, while others were renounced by the T'nited States. By this renunciation American fishing vessels were not allowed to take, dry or cure fish "within three marine miles of the coasts, bays, harbors and creeks" of the British possessions except certain specified coasts and except in certain cases of emergency. Some twenty-five years after the treaty was signed the colonial governments de clared that the word "bays" used In the treaty meant any bay bo named on the maps, irrespective of its width, and some American vessels were seized at distances greater than three miles from land. Interpretation Opposed. The United States denied this interpre tation of the treaty provisions, asserting that only inlets qf the sea, not over six miles wide, were intended. From that time forward the Interpretation has been In dispute. At a much later period the Newfoundland government adopted regu lations as to the coast fisheries of that is land, which American fishermen have the right at certain places to participate in "In common" with British fishermen. Cer tain of these regulations were thdught to be directed agattnst Americans and also to discriminate In favor of the local fish ermen. Certain of these regulations were thought to be directed against Americans and also to discriminate in favor of the local fishermen. The United States pro tested against this action as being a limitation of the rights of their people, which, being unqualified and perpetual, could not be so restricted, except by mu tual agreement of the two governments. Other questions of a minor character, all growing out of the meaning placed upon the language of the treaty, are Involved. It will be a matter' for congratulation to both countries when this controversy, which ha* been the fruitful source of ir ritation and of a voluminous diplomatic correspondence for over sixty years, is at last laid to rest, as it will be by the award of the tribunal of The Hague which will meet next fall to hear and determine the true meaning and intent of the fisheries article of the treaty of 1818. Commander Bowers' iCetirement. The published statement that Command er F. C. Bowers, U. 8. N., bad failed to take successfully the physical test and had been found physically Incapacitated for active duty and .is to be retired in consequence is denied by the command er's friends.
