XEW YORK, January 5. ? There are likely to be pome ructions when the dem ocratic national cojrnmittee meets in Washington next Monday. Urey Wood son. democratic national committeeman from Kentucky, who is ai the Impera' on" his way to the capital, intimated as much yesterday, and Mr. Woodson lives next door neighbor to one of the states where trouble is brewing. Tennessee is where the people are fighting mad over the question of a committeeman to rep resent the state, and Pennsylvania, though somewhat calmer and the demo cratic vote not counting so much, has been doing a little in the boiling line it self. "The contests in thes4 two states have been very bitter," said Mr. Woodson. "In Tennessee it's this way. Mount castle was elected to the national com mittee four years ago, and is, of course, still a member. His place is being con tested by John J. Vertrees, a lawyer of Nashville, who, by the way, defended Ballingor. Mountcastle is also a lawyer,^ and was one of those who fused with the republicans and helped elect a re publican governor. In f&ct, he presided over the convention that nominated Hooper. "Well, the democratic convention de clared his place on the national commit tee vacant and elected Vertrees to take his place, and they say that about the whole of Tennessee is coming on to | Washington to see the contest fought to a finish. To Contest Guffey's Seat. "Likewise in Pennsylvania Col. J. M. Guffey's seat is under contest again. In 19US, when we went to Denver, there was a contest and the anti-Guffey crowd was | sufficiently strong to put in James Kerr as national committeeman. In a few months Kerr died and the Pennsylvania state central committee, under the au thority vested in It by the democratic na tional convention, elected Guffey as j Kerr's successor. "The meeting Monday will be the first of the national committee since soon after the campa gn of 1908 and those con tests are going to prove difficult to settle. The other business before the committee w.lI be, aside from selecting the place for the next national convention, to appoint a subcommittee of seven to run the con vention, and this will name a temporary presiding officer and appoint hundreds of men to various positions in the conven tion. "As for the situation in Kentucky, we are much split up. Harmon and Wilson both have warm friends, the congres sional delegation is for Champ Clark, and Underwood, when he came out to speak in our campaign, made a wonderful im pression. "Ollle James is out home waiting to be elected United States senator, wh ch will be done in about ten days, for the demo crats have an overwhelming majority of the legislature on joint ballot?something like 106 out of 138." PRACTICALLY IDENTICAL. Bids for High-Grade Armor Submit ted by Three Firms. The three armor producing plants of the j country have submitted practically iden tical bids for supp!ying a large quantity of high-grade armor for the navy. The I Bethlehem, Carnegie and Midvale com- ' panies bid $420 a ton for 13,101 tons of class A armor, or $480 per ton for 6,674 tons. For class B armor, amounting to 445 tons, there was a slight difference in the bidding, the Carnegie company's bid be ing $160 a ton and the Midvale and Beth lehem bids $470. For bolts and armor attachments, ag gregating 130 tons, all three companies bid $Ti08 per ton. Actress Dying of Tuberculosis.

DODSON Bight of Mayor of Mount Rainier to Hold His Office Questioned by Attorneys. Special Correspondence of The Star. MOUNT RAINIER, Md., January 5. 1912. The trial of George W. Dodson, charged with a technical violation of the building regulations, upset this community last night as no other trial has done for many a day, and so heated was the discussion of attorneys, witnesses and even the re marks of Justice Robert E. Joyce, who presided, that the conflagration of yes terday morning was forgotten for the evening. Dodson's lawyers, four in num ber, arose to defend him against a two dollar violation of the building regula tions. and their first shot was to declare that Mayor T. K. Plant is not real.y the mayor of Mount Rainier at all, and con sequently the warrant issued for Dodson under the Plant regime is of no force. As vigorously as Charles M. Mattingly, one of the four attorneys for Dodson, tried to uproot the Plant regime the friends of the mayor In the courtroom came vociferously to his rescue. Mat tingly's claim was that Mayor Pl?t does not own $n"0 worth of real estate in Mount Rainier, a circumstance which would debar him from holding office as mayor. Harry Quinn. corporation counsel, claimed that the entire business was what is called in Mount Rainier a ??frame-up" to embarrass the Plant ad ministration. Attorney Wells, one of the four appearing tor Mr. Dodson, was aroused by these remarks and addressed Corporation Counsel Quinn on the folly of making personal remarks. The court room acene was a lively one until Justice Joyce found a way out of the difficulty by dismissing the case entirely. CALL TO SCOUT MASTERS. Asked to Attend Meeting at Public Library Saturday Night. The twenty-seven scout masters in Wasnlngton's organlzat on of Boy Scouts have been invited to attend a meeting to be held in the Public Library Saturday n ght, when an address will be delivered by W.

HSTRKT LOSES TRACT ST CEMEIERr DECISION Commissioners Accept Ruling in Montrose Park Pur chase Dispute. Settlement of the dispute over the boundary line between Oak Hill cemetery and Montrose Park has been made in favor of the cemetery company, the District Commissioners, acting on an opinion by Corporation Counsel Thomas, deciding to accept the fence constructed by the com pany as the proper dividing line This will give the District about 7,000 square feet of ground less than it expected to obtain In the purchase of Montrose Park, at a cost of $110,000. Arrangements were commenced today in the office of Surveyor Hazen to pre pare a new plat of the park, which will conform with the Commissioners' deci sion. Mr. Thomas' opinion supported the stand taken by Surveyor Hazen when the matter was first called to the Com missioners' attention. The difficulty grew out of the fact that the cemetery company had extended a fence beyond what was believed to be the boundary line at the time the District purchased Montrose Park. In Possession Fifty Tears. It was shown that the company had been In undisputed possession of this strip of land, which has a width of thirteen feet at its widest point, for more than fifty years, and for this reason Surveyor Hazen claimed that the title of the company to the property was good. On motion of Capt- Mark Brooke, as sistant engineer commissioner, the mat ter was referred to Corporation Counsel Thomas for an opinion as to the validity of the title, and whether the District should attempt to recover from the vendor under the warranty in the case. Mr. Thomas not only took the view of Sur veyor Hazen with regard to the validity of the company's title, but hold that no action lies against the vendor to recover any part of the purchase price. Had the District secured possession of the disputed ground, it probably would have meant the removal of a number of graves which were made as far back as 1849. POLICE ARE ON THE TRAIL OF QUEEN'S STOLEN GEMS Arrest in Connection With Theft of Three Tears Ago?Jewels Val ued at $50,000. (LONDON, January 5.?Scotland Yard detectives last night made an arrest in connection with the robbery of a queen's jewelry which has baffled the police of the world for nearly three years. The stolen jewels, which included a pearl necklace insured in London for $50,000. disappeared from the strongroom of a German steamer on which they were being sent from England to Bangkok, where they were destined for Queen Sow aya Pongsl, wife of the late King Chula longkorn of Siam. Box Emj~ty When Opened. The jewels had been carefully packed in a box in London, conveyed with every precaution on board the steamer and deposited in its strongroom, but when the box was opened at Bangkok it was empty. That was In the summer of 100J>. From that time not the smallest clue was obtained until a fortnight ago. when the police of Singapore learned that an at tempt had been made to dispose of some of the missing gems there. A man was traced from the Straits Settlements to London, and was arrested last night. The prisoner will be arraigned at the Bow street police court. BIDS FOR BATTLESHIPS.

"HOG DENTIST" APPEAES. Declares That All the Diseases Pork Is Heir to Comes From Teeth. Postmaster General Hitchcock's collec tion of freak letters was enriched this morning by a contribution from a "hog dentist," who has a remedy that will cure well hogs as well as sick ones if they are taken In time. He writes as follows: "I find that I am the only man who has found out what kills hogs. I find that it is a disease that originates from the teeth and the only remedy is to at tend to the teeth in proper time before they get sick. For medicine will not reach it. I have tried that all the way down the line and I have found that no man in the United States can beat me. "1 have applied it to large hogs and to small ones and And my remedy works all right. 1 find that hogs 1 treat can go in where other cholera hogs are and never catch the disease. 1 have fed bogs out of the stock yards where cholera hogs have been fed and I claim that I am the only hog dentist in the world. This rem edy I have applies to well hogs as well as Bick ones if they are treated in time." PROTECTS RED CROSS. Nurses Not to Be Allowed at Front in War, Taft's Order.

WINDSOR, Vt, January 6.?What may perhaps be the last legal execution in I Vermont will occur this afternoon, when Elroy Kent will be hanged in the state prison here for murdering Miss Delia B. Congdon at East Walllngford, July 24, 1908. Several attempts were made to save Kent on the ground that the man was weak mentally, and there has been much agitation throughout the state against the execution. As an outcome of the Kent case, senators and representatives favoring the abolition of capital punishment say they will carry the campaign into the legislature. Sheriff Plans for Execution. The arrangements for the execution were completed earlier in the week by the high sheriff. The prisoner has con tinued in good health physically, and there has been little change in his mental condition. On the morning of July 24, 1908, the body of Miss Congdon, a deaf mute, forty years old, who lived alone, was found In her secluded furmhouse, at East Walllngford. She had evidently been struck with a club upon the head and choked as she was preparing break fast. The house had been ransacked. Kent had been in the trisun uere for larceny, and in 1903 had been taken to the Waterbury asylum for observation as to his sanity. July 11, 1908, thirteen days be fore the murder, he had escaped from the institution. His Conviction and Sentence. Jn October Kent was arrested at Pitte fleld, Mass., on a charge of having stolen a bicycle. He was brought to this state and indicted for the murder of Miss Cong don, declared sane, adjudged guilty and sentenced to be hanged January 13, 1911. Under a Vermont' law which decrees that a session of the legislature shall in tervene between the sentence of a person to be hanged and its execution. Gov. Mead repreved Kent until January 5, 1912. Kent has a brother in the asylum at Waterbury. Personal Notes of River Hen. Capt. Frank Taylor is in Baltimore on business connected with the tug M.

TEHERAN', January 5.?Six more prom inent citizens of Tabriz have been hanged by the Russians. The foreign consuls complain of the high-handed procedure of the Russ'an consul at Resht. who posted a proclama tion on the walls, ordering the inhab itants to submit to domiciliary visits of Russian Cossacks, who search private houses for arms. No arrangements have yet been made to relieve W. Morgan Shuster, who con tinues his duties as treasurer gene al. The government still desires to a. point Mr. Cairns to succeed him, but the B itiah j and Russian legations declare that any I American is absolutely inaJmisible. Rus sia also informed the cabinet that the treasury gendarmerie, organized by Mr. Shuster, must be dissolved. The news of further executions at Tab riz causes the greatest indignation here. 1 In an interview today a high Persian of ficial said: "This makes the cabinet's retention of office almost impossible, seeing that ihe basis of its policy ? the maintenance of friendly relations with Russia?i.as ueen rudely shaken. The ministers do not da.e to tell the people that friendly . elatons still exist, unless Russia is pi epai ed to make reparation" BORAH ENJOYS BETOBT. I _ Silences Anti-Bryan Democrats With Besult of Western Poll. Senator Borah is having a good laugh at the expense of several democratic senators. He found himself yesterday afternoon surrounded by a group of minority members of the Senate, and he put in a general question to them as to who the democrats were going to nominate for President. There were several strong partisans in the group, and several of the "prospectlves" were mentioned. "But how about Bryan?" Senator Borah asked, for his name had not been men tioned. "Oh, he's a dead one," was the chorus of replies. And some made gestures of disgust. "Is he a dead one.?" Mr. Borah re torted. "How about this?" And he pulled from his pocket an influential democratic paper published in the west and pointed to the result of a recent poll it had taken. The poll showed that Bryan had received more votes than all the other candidates put to gether. Attache Named for Tokio Embassy. First Lieut.
