The Woman Suffrage Movement. To th'1 FMltor of The Star: Referring to your editorial on the wom an suffrage movement, the Xntional American Woman Suffrage Association is at the present time conducting just such a campaign as you have sugsested, by the circulation of a great national petition asking Congress to submit to the Jegisla tures of the *everal states for ratification an amendment to the national Constitu tion which shall enable women to vote. No such petition has been circulated for the last twenty years, and we intend this petition to show, when proper!} classified, the number o' men and the number of women throughout the I'nited'States who ?re in favor of w?>m.m suffrage. From these headquarters, now located at 1K23 H street northwest, thousands of petition blanks have been sent out. and enough returns have been received to in dicate that this will be the largest peti-i tion ever presented to Congress on a>iy subject whatever. This should be a practi cal answer to the question, Do women want to vote? In regard to the expressions of Kishop Doane, Cardinal Gibbons and other church dignitaries, it can be said that they can not represent the opinions of all the mem bers of their respective church organiza tions. There have been other high, church ufli< ialf. whose opinions probably carry just as much weight and authority, who have spoken In favor of the movement, and who recognize the work of women in the churches as well as at home, and give them credit for equal intelligence with their male relatives. JEXNETTE il. BRADLEY. 4 WORKING FOR SHIP SUBSIDY MERCANTILE MARINE LEAGUE OFFICERS GIVE DINNER. \ * Speaker Cannon Guest of Honor. President Lends Encouragement by Appearing for Brief Stay. Ship subsidy took a new lease on life last evening, President Taft being a guest for a short time at a dinner ghen by the friends of subsidy at the New Willard. The dinner was to boom the Humphrey bill. The Mercantile Marine League, which is backing the movement, has representatives and an organization in 200 of the 301 congressional districts and is willing to swap its support for congressional backing to the bill when the next election rolls around. Speaker Cannon was the guest of honor at the dinner and President Taft gave encouragement to the promoters! of the measure by dropping in on the diners shortly after 9 o'clock. The hosts were officials and members of the Merchant Marine league, with headquarters at Cleveland, Ohio. Avowed Purpose of Dinner. The avowed purpose of the dinner was to persuade President Taft. Speaker Can non and the republican leaders that the new Humphrey bill should be made a part of the republican legislative pro gram of next winter. Officers of the league explained to their guests the de tails of a remarkable organization with members in 2?0 of the 301 coP^es?'?K districts, to create a sentiment in behalf of the Humphrey bill. They offered turn this organization to the advantage of the republican party in the next cam PThe two novel features of the Hum phrey bill are free ships- and a new sys tem of tonnage taxes At present Amer^ cans owning foreign-built ships, are not permitted to fly the American fl? g . them or have them admitted to Amerl can registry unless they are more than half rebuilt in American shipyards. The bill proposes to admit to American reg istry foreign-built steamers of 5,000 gross tons or more wholly owned by American . These ships nre to be restricted to for eign trade or trade with the Philippine and Hawaiian islands, and are to he bar red from the coastwise trade and from mail compensation under the act of 1<-Ji or the Humphrey act. As to Tonnage Taxes. The tonnage taxes in waters of tins hemisphere are to be reduced, while ton nage taxes In the transatlantic trade and in the eastern trade are to be materially increased. The reciprocal law relating to tonnage taxe3 is repealed by this bill. This will mean an increase estimated at a million dollars in tonnage taxes to be paid by foreign ship owners, and it is expected to decrease the tonnage taxes now paid by American ships, which trade is chiefly in local waters. Further than this, a rebate of 80 per cent of all tonnage taxes will be allowed American ships which carry American boys or apprentices to be trained in sea manship. The other features of the bill are the same as those of the last two or three mail subsidy bills to be introduced. This bill seeks, as those did, to establish new mail lines to South and Central America, Japan. China, the Philippines and Australasia, the compensation of these lines being paid out of the mail receipts. Card Index System. The organization of the Merchant Ma rine League to promote sentiment for this bill is based on an elaborate card index system, covering each of the 'Jt'O congressional districts whose members are opposed or lukewarm to the ship subsidy proposition. The card devoted to each congressional district contains the names of from fifty to seventy-five prom inent men. These men are being bom barded with publicity material. 1 h rough them, in this fashion, a sentiment is ex pected to be developed which will reach the member in each case. This card in dex system has been offered to the re publican leaders for use in the next elec tion. . _ , The dinner was a private affair. Among the hosts, officers and members of the Merchant Marine League were President Joseph G- Butler of Youngstown, Ohio; Vice President Myron T. Herrick of Cleveland; Treasurer J. J. Sullivan of Cleveland and Secretary John A. Ponton of Cleveland. Besides Speaker Cannon, the guests were Representatives Payne of New York, McKinlev of Illinois, Dwight of New York and Burke of Penn sylvania. Senator Gallinger, Postmaster General Hitchcock, John Barrett, director of the bureau of the American republics; Assistant Secretary of State Wilson, Gen. Clarence R. Edwards, chief of the bureau of insular affairs; former Senator llem enwav, former Representative Charles B. Landis of Indiana, former Second As sistant Postmaster General McCleary and many others interested in the ship sub sidy question. HI6HER TARIFF ON PINEAPPLES SOUTHERN SENATORS WIN FIGHT FOR GROWERS. Maryland Senators' Efforts to Help Canners of Their State Fail?Coal Schedule Completed. | The finance committee struck another snag in the Senate late yesterday after noon when the pineapple paragraph was readied. The contention in this connec tion was for higher tariff rates, and came from democratic sources. The objectors in this case-were Senators Taliaferro and Fletcher of Florida. The House had fixed a duty of 8 cents per cubic foot on pine apples in barrels and of $8 per thousand, but the Senate committee on finance re duced this rate to 7 cents and $7 respec tively, thus restoring the provisions of the I^ingley law. Mr. Taliaferro presented an amendment | restoring the House rate of per thou 1 sand, but changing the other portions of the provision so as to require the pay ment of half a cent a pound for pine apples in bulk. The contention was for and against this increase, and the light was mainly between the Florida sena tors, representing a pineapple-producing state, and Senators femith and Ra\ ner of Maryland, in whose state there are large pineapple-canning establishments. Dis avowing all championship of the canners, the Maryland senators made a : uenuous fight on general principles against the in crease of the duty. In the course of i.is remarks Mr. Rayner charged the repub lican party with bad faith in promising | to lower tariff duties. \fter a debate extending over about t lour hours' time, the Taliaferro amend I merit was adopted, 34 to 30. This was a | defeat for the finance committee, but the amendment was not strenuously resisted I by tlie committee and several of its mem j hers voted for it. The close of the day presented a sur prise ir. the completion of the coal sched ule' It had beeh expected that this sched ule would be debated at great length, but it was passed after litile more than mi hour's discussion. A new schedule I was presented by Mr..Aldricb as chair man of the finance committee reducing the House rate on bituminous coal from <?7 cents per ton to (W cents and eliminat ing the House reciprocity clause. Numerous attempts were made to re duce the rate, and thene was one effort to obtain free coal, but they were all voted down and the committee's scale re tained. Asks for an Absolute Divorce. Otho E Peters today filed suit for an absolute divorce from Hatt e May Peters. They were married in Martinsburg, Md.t August 14, ltKK!, and came to this city two years later. They have one son fivt? years old. Infidelity is aliened and a co lespondent named. Fred Blake, a young neero. was run over by a C. & O. train at Staunton, Va., and his body cut in tw? MAN TRIES TO SLAY HIS WIFE AND STEPDAUGHTER. Effort by Suicide, Who Had Been Separted From Spouse, at Reconciliation Fails. BALTIMORE. Md.. June 24.??nraged at his wife's refusal to bec<jme reconciled to him. George A. Rocks, fifty years old. of Ensor street, near Ashland avenue, shot and killed himself after he had tried to kill his wife, Mrs. Ida Rocks, and his stepdaughter. Miss Lily Cole, fourteen years old, by shooting them with the same pistol at their home, U817 I" rlsby street. The two women are at St. Luke's Hospital, where they were taken in the northern district ambulance. There is hope for their recovery. Rocks had been separated from his wife since last March, and numerous efforts at reconciliation had failed. He had only been released from the northern police station about four Ivpurs. having been fined $5 and costs for assaulting his brother-in-law. Howard Lamb, H810 "N al ley street, Tuesday at U5th street and Greenmount avenue. Mr. and Mrs. Rocks were married about ten vears ago. and for a long time lived in Waverly. Both had been married be fore. and Mrs. Rocks has a daughter and Rocks a son, both grown. Until last March they lived together, but, it is said. Rocks became addicted to drink and grew quarrelsome. Mrs. Rocks had him arraigned at the northeastern police station in March and they had since been separated, with the exception of a period of two days. Asks to Be Taken Back. Shortly after 4 o'clock yesterday after noon Rocks went to his wife's home, where she conducted a grocery. "Where is Ida?" he asked as he entered the store. "She is back in the kitchen," said one of the younger children. Rocks embraced t lie child. Then he was met by his wife, who inquired what he desired. "Ida, please forgive mel" he said. I will treat you all right in the future. Let me come home with you and the children." Mrs. Rocks declined to have him back with her under any consideration. "Well, then, I want some money," he said, "and I am going to stay here to supper." _ , , "Leave the house! You are not wanted here, and you cannot stay for supper, Mrs. Rocks said. She then left him and went back into the kitchen. A remark from Miss Cole seemed to incense Rocks, for he grabbed her around the neck, and. pulling a pistol from his pocket, pressed it to her fore head and fired. Falls to the Floor Screaming. She fell to the floor and screamed. Mrs. Rocks heard the shot, and as she ran from the-kitchen to the dining room Rocks fired at her. The bullet went through her mouth and lodged in her throat. Rocks' two youngest children were in the room when he shot his wife and stepdaughter, and they ran screaming from the house. He walked coolly back to the kitchen, after stepping over his wife, who lay on the floor. Placing the muzzle of the pistol in his mouth'he fired. The two women managed ?to get to their feet and ran screaming into the home of Mrs. Harry Norris. 2815 Frisby street. Mrs. Norris had heard the shots fired, and when she saw the two women run into her yard, bleeding profusely, she sent her nephew. Raymond Shettle, for Dr. W. J. Pillsbury, 2801 Green mount avenue. Patrolmen Wolters and Gcrnhardt of the northeastern district and Sergt. Dunn of the northern district soon ar rived and found Rocks dead. After re ceiving medical attention, the two wom en were hurried to the hospital on 'he advice of Capt. Gittings. Rocks' body was taken to the morgue in the north eastern district wagon by Patrolman Hoffman. HOLY TRINITY SCHOOL CLOSES INTERESTING ENTERTAINMENT IN THE PARISH HALL. Numerous Premiums Awarded.
