HUTCHINS HOUSE TAXES Chief Justice Clabaugh's Deci sion, From Which Walter S. Hutchins Appeals. Chief Justice Clabaugli today directed William J. Dante, trustee of the Stilson Hutchins" millions, to pay the taxes for 1011 on premises 1000 Massachusetts ave nue northwest, which stands in the name of Mrs. Rose Keeling Hutchins. The taxes amount to about $300. From this order Walter S. Hutchins, a son of the financier, through Attorney Edward H. Thomas, noted an appeal to the District Court of Appeals. ! The son's contention is that his father gave Mrs. Hutchins the Massachusetts avenue house about six years ago and that his father's estate is not liable for the taxes on the property, which, lie states, should be paid out of the monthly allowance of given Mrs. Hutchins by the court's decree. Rent of Paris Apartments. The chief justice declined .to grant the request of Mrs. Hutchins for an order re quiring Trustee Dante to pay about due on account of the rent of the Paris apartment. The court impressed on At torney John C. Gittings for the wife that he desired information concerning the lease of the apartment at the - rench cap ital. The court wants to know if the lease can be sold or canceled for a con sideration. Mrs. Hutchins was present today for the first time at a session in opwn court. She followed closely the arguments of dounsel, and showed her disappo ntment when the < ourt declined to allow the pay ment of her Paris apartment bill. Trustee Dante and Nathaniel Wilson, guardian of Stilson Hutchins, were pres ent in court, but uld not join in the appeal noted by Walter S Hutchins. INJURED IN ACCIDENT ON STEPS OF CAUL Colored Employe of Supreme Court for Fifty Years Seriously Hurt. Archibald Lewis, colored, for more than half a century an employe of the United States Supreme Court, and for most of that time in charge of the robing room, fell on the steps of the Capitol this morn ing and his frontal bone was fractured. He was taken to the,Casualty Hospital, and the surgeons there have hopes that he will recover. Lewis, who has been very regular in his duties with the highest tribunal in the land, was starting up the short flight or steps on the north side of the Senate wmg of the Capitol about U o'clock this morn ing, on his way to his work, when lie made a misstep and fell forward. His head struck on the edge of one of the stone steps! First Worked as Slave. Lewis was able to get on his feet again and made his way slowly inside the Capi tol. Poileeman Frank Jones saw the deep cut in his forehead and assisted him to a small room nearby. There he gave nrst aid treatment until the ambulance of the Casualty Hospital, which was promptly summoned, arrived. At the hospital the doctors found that an opera tion was not immediately necessary. Lewis camo to the United States Su preme Court as a stave, brought by one of the justices. After the etiiansipauon pioclamatlon he continued his employ ment, and has survived a complete change in the personnel of the court, and the length of hiH service Is only sur passed by that of one other employe of the court. For many years he has as sisted the. justices in putting ou their robes before mounting the bench. DICKENS FUNERAL PLANS. Services at Noon Tomorrow in Trin ity Church, New York. NEW YORK.

LENT AID TO AMBITIONS New York Editor Original Backer of Princeton Man. AFRAID OF WALL STREET * - New Jersey Executive Believed to Be Trying to Shake Off Affiliation With "Interests." Democratic senators and represent- ! atlves were vefy much interested today in a dispatch from Trenton, N. J., stat ins that Gov. Woodrow Wilson had broken with Col. George W. Harvey, the original Wilson boomer, and had intimated that Col. Harvey's support of his candidacy was more hurtful than helpful. The construction which democrats here placed upon the statement was that if it is true it signifies another effort on the part of Gov. Wilson to dissociate himself in a marked manner from Col. Harvey's alleged affiliations with "big business" and "the Interests" in New York. Some democrats said that as an in stance of political ingratitude such ac tion on the part of Gov. Wilson would stand among the most notable cases of history. Pushed Wilson's Candidacy. Everybody acquainted with the inside details of the gubernatorial campaign in New Jersey in 1!)09 knows that, if there is one individual who more than an other is responsible for the exploitation of Gov. Wilson, that man is George W. Harvey. In season and out he boomed Wilson, and what is more to the point, he made a successful job of It. It will be recalled that at that time the charge was made that big financial in terests in New York were in sympathy with Gov. Wilson's candidacy. Certainly, the similar interests in New Jersey, re sponding to the suggestion of ex-Senator Smith, were entirely friendly. Be that as it may, the tir.si thing Gov. Wilson did when he became governor was to give refutation to the charges that he was a party to any dicker with big busi-* ness by turning down ex-Senator Smith's claim on the senatorship and insisting upon the. election of Mr. Martine. Demo crats hero are wondering if Gov. Wi so.i is intent upon further accentua ing h s freedom from the influence of cig busi ness by turning against his former back er, Col. Harvey. * Still Another Version. Another explanation of the friendliness of certain New York men of power to I Wilson was given during the ."ampa gn of 1909. It was said that certain Princeton men were desirous of getting Gov. Wilson out of Princeton, without hurting his feelings, and lent themselves gladly to the political ambitions of tne proxy of their alma mater. Former Piincetonia.is who are now connected with ..uorgaii & Co. were mentioned in this connection. It appears evident to democrats here that Gov. Wilson is intern upon separat ing himself conspicuously from tne con servative element of tne democ.atc pa. t,> and to keep out of the deauly Upas o..ade of "Wall street affiliations. ' He is oe termined, they say, not .o be overtaken by the direful fate which the Bryanued charge lias befallen another notable can didate tor the presidential nominat.on. Harvey Says Nothing. NEW YORK, January 5.?When Col. Harvey was asked about the Trenton story over the telephone he merely assed what the reporter had heard about it and further he said not. Col. Harvey has always been regarded as the inventor of tne wilt-on boom for the presidency. The. orators who spose tor Vivian M. Lewis, the republican op ponent of <iov. Wnson in the la^t gu bernatorial campair.il in jsew Jersey, never los^t an opportunity to refer to the fact that Wi.son's campaign was being backed by Col. Harvey and his paper printed in New York. Tne right hana man of Lewis used to read a poem from the platforms around the state ,n which he pictured the colonel fix.ng up Gov. Wilson's nomination In a downtown office bu.lding. Wilson Not Mentioned. Editorially and in long interviews har per's Weekly was for a long time full of praise of Dr. Wl-son and of suggestion of something blKger than the Jersey tov erorsh.p for him. There was hardly a number that did not contain some men tion of the Jersey scholar in pollt cs. But in the Weekly for December iM and December 30 there is no mention of Gov. Wilson at n.l. although there is plenty of polltica. matter on the edhortal pages containing the usual tilt at Roosevelt and p.eces about Taft, La Follette, Under wood, Bryan and Santa Claus. There Is an advertisement of Gov. Wilson's his tory. The report as it reached New York said that Col. Watterson was included with Co.. Harvey in the list of those who had separated themselves or been separated from Gov. Wilson's boom. COURT DELAYS THE DATE OF HOPE DIAMOND TRIAL Awaiting Evidence Which Both Par ties Expect to Procure in London and Paris. Because of the uncertainty of the time needed to secure the deposition of u wit ness in Paris desired by the Cartiers, and of other persons in London and Paris whose testimony is to be taken on be half of the McLeans. Justice Gould of the District Supreme Court today declined to set a date for the trial of the Hope dia mond case. The Court, however, an nounced that on the receipt of the testi mony from abroad counsel might renew the application to set a date for the hear ing. Anxious for Early Trial. Counsel for Edward B. McLean and his wife, Evelyn Walsh McLean, who are being sued by the diamond merchants to recover $180,000, the purchase price of the Hope diamond, told the court thdt their clients are as anxious for a speedy disposition of the case as is the plaintiff, whose mo Ion to advance the oase for trial was before the court. Wilton J. Lambert, one of the McLean attorneys, said that while they w.shed the case heard they desired time to procure deposi. tions of witnesses In London and Paris to be used by the defense. As soon as such tea lmony had been filed, he stated, he would be ready for trial. Attorneys Brandenburg & Brandenburg and C. W. DeKnight represent Cartier.

JEWISH WOMEN HEK LEAVE NATIONAL BODY Washington Council . Severs Its Relations and State ment Gives Reason. Relations with the National Council of Jewish Women have been ouiclally sev ered by the unanimous vote of the Wash ington council, which Is acting on its own initiative. Giving as its reason the arbitrary ad ministration of the national organization, the Washington council, through Mrs. Adolph Kahn, its president, today official ly made a public statement declaring tnat all relations between the local and national organization are officially termi nated. Opposition to the re-election of Mi-as Sadie American as executive secretary because of the unlimited powers with which that office is vested is given as the real reason for the withdrawal ot tlie local council. ?Its resignation was formerly presented after the triennial meeting of Jhe na tional council, December 10 last, in Phila delphia, and only recently have the re lations been announced as officially ended. At present the, officers of the Washing ton council, which will act now as a sep arate body, are Mrs. Adolph Kahn, presi dent; Mrs. Charles Goldsmith, first vice president; Mrs. Alphonse M. Baer, sec ond vice president: Mrs. James Lans burgh, recording secretary; Mrs. Alex ander Wolf, corresponding secretary; Mrs. Isaac Xeumun, treasurer, and Mrs. Jacob S. Kahn, auditor. Membership Is Increased. These officers, elected at the spring meeting of the council before Its with drawal, will continue under the separate organization. As a result of the with drawal, a number of prominent persons, who have refrained from joining before on account of the national- administra tion, have been added to the member snip of tlie local council, which now num bers nearly 400 persons. In the statement of the council Mrs. ivahn says, in part: "At a special meeting called Novem ber ? the local body, after fully dis cussing the causes of its dissatisxaction with the arbitrary methods of the na tional administration, decided that it would no longer suomit to tne existing conditions. A resolution was accord ingly passed at this meeting stating that the section was unwilling 10 continue as part of the national council, if its in cumbent in the office of executive secre tary was re-elected. After an unsuccess ful attempt to ameliorate conunions at t ie triennial in Philadelphia, and in ac cordance with the unanimous vote of the section, the resignation of the Washing ton council from the National Council of Jewish Women was sent in. Local Council Enthusiastic. "The members of the local body, who number nearly 400, are enthusiastic in i their plans not only to continue the good work of the organization, but to extend it, as there will be now additional resources to prosecute their many activities. The various committees, which include three new cnes. are doing remarkable work, and l ave made the. Washington council a rec ognized factor for good in the Capital city. "The local organization will further de velop its immigrant aid work, the plan of which was recommended by the na tional chairman as a model for work In in land cities and was greatly praised for its successful accomplishment. "Many prominent men in order to ex press their approval of the independent stand taken by the Washington councH have joined its ranks ,*is associate mem bers. For sixteen years the Washington council has maintained the most perfect harmony in its local body, and it greatly deplores the conditions in the National Council which rendered its withdrawal imperative. "It believes that the centering of power in one individual must prove disastrous to any organization." "NOT GUILTY" IS PLEA TO BENNETTS CM James H. Smith, Wearing New Clothes and Mustache, Enters Denial. i James II. Smith pleaded not guilty to day to an indictment charging that he assaulted and robbed Morris Bennett while on the Benning road November 20 last. Smith was arraigned before Jus tice Anderson in Criminal Court No. 1. Atto.neys (3<?orgc C. Shlnn and Claude W. Owen, for the defense, secured per mission of Justice Anderson to withdraw the plea of not guilty and demur to the indictment by next Tuesday. Mr. Sh-nn asked ten days to decide whether' he would file the demurrer, but Assistant United States Attorney Proctor objec;ed, saying that the demurrer should be filed in time to be disposed of by Justice An derson next Friday. Mr. Proctor told the court that it is tie intention of the gov ernment to call Smith to trial at an early date. Has Grown a Mustache. Well groomed and wiring a carefully combed mustache, whicn he has grown since his incarceration. Smith stood at the bar ' between two deputy marshals while the indict nent was read to him by Clerk McKee. 'The prisoner wore a dark coat and trousers, with a mauve vest and a robin-blue tie His shoes were of tan and iiad the-appearance of being new. "Are you James II. Smith?" asked the clerk as the prisoner came to the bar. "Yes, sir," said Smitli, in a ciear voice, that could be heard all over the court room. As the clerk read the Indictment, in which Smith is charged with assaulting with a hatchet, the accused appeared somewhat nervous. He shifted from foot to foot, looked down at the floor anJ oc casionally about the crowded courtroom. His plea of not guilty, however, was an nounced in a voice that gave no indica tions of nervousness. WARSHIP HALTED BY DEATH. Michigan Returns to Fort With Body of Accident Victim. NEW YORK.
