Land Commissioner Dennett Urges Plan of Review. WORK IS PILED TOO HIGH j Duties of Commissioner and Assist ant Both Executive and Judi cial in Character. The passage by Congress of legislation creating a board of law review of five members, wbicb should be given original jurisdiction upon all cases written by the various law clerks of the general land office, under which rights of claimants are determined, with (the right of review in the commissioner of the office and; appeal to the Secretary of the Interior, Is asked in the annual report of Commissioner Dennett of the land' office, just submitted to the Secretary of the Interior. "The two duties, executive and judicial," the commissioner says, "will fn this way be more adequately taken care of, as they should be, and it would be possible for the work to-receive from the heads a more careful consideration than it does now. The commissioner as an executive officer could give personal attention to many Important details for which he is responsible to which lie can give only brief attention at present, and by the creation of the positions of Ave members of a board of law review with original jurisdiction all cases which are submitted to tliis office could* receive closer and more careful attention than they do at present." Demand More Attention. In this connection, he deolared: "It is impossible for the commissioner and his assistant to pay the judicial at tention to these cases which they should receive. The bar practicing before this office has very little opportunity to sub mit its cases directly to those who are by law responsible for the decisions, because of the multitudinous duties placed on these officers. The head of the office can not find time to give individual attention to many of the most important cases which are submitted for liis considera tion; ne has too many duties to attend which he can not detail to others because he alone by law can perform them. "It necessarily follows, therefore, that: "(1) The commissioner is an executive officer having jurisdiction over as many diverse duties as any other bureau officer in the government, having directly under him at the present time some 2,000 em ployes. "(2) He is also a Judicial officer, hav ing the determination of cases great in number and of vast importance and over claims of great value, v.r?h one assistant commissioner. Covers a Wide Field. "As an executive officer the work over which he has jurisdiction is scattered over 106 land offices, thirteen surveyors general and twelve field divisions, with a force of some 000 employes localised in Washington, with a collection of, in round numbers, $10,000,000 a year and with the responsibility upon his shoul ders of seeing that the work performed by this brigade of employes is propers done. From the standpoint of work alone this is sufficient for one man to be respon sible for. but in addition he must, with the assistant commissioner, individually assume responsibility for the text of the numerous decisions rendered by the gen eral land office. "Of the 526 employes in this office, 131 are graduate lawyers, and in addition there are about 160 employes who by ex perience are qualified to pass on matters of a quasi-judicial oharacter. In other words, there are over 280 men in this bureau who are passing upon matters which require either a general legal .knowledge or expert knowledge in the interpretation of certain laws. It can easily be seen, therefore, that it would be Impossible to transfer to any tribunal of the ordinary organiza tion the matters which come before this bureau for judicial determination. There can be no removal of these cases from the jurisdiction of the land office. The In telligent way is to give to a board of law review greater powers, namely, au thority to decide, as a judicial body, mat ters before the general land office, under the supervision of the commissioner, an appeal lying to the Secretary of the In terior." National Monuments. As to national monuments, the com missioner says: '.'Under authority of the act approved June. 1906, the President, during the year, by formal proclamations prepared, created the following monu ments from lands under control of the United States: "Colorado national monument. Colo rado, exhibiting extraordinary examples of erosion, of considerable scientific in terest. "Devils Postpile, California, including Rainbow falls, within the Sierra national forest, and under the jurisdiction of the Department of Agriculture. "The Lewis and Clark cavern, Mon tana, was also more definitely located by a second proclamation, and the boun daries of the petrified forest, in Arizona, were materially reduced. "There is great need of funds for the proper protection and administration of such of the national monuments, created out of the public lands, as consist of or include within their boundaries historic and prehistoric ruins, or other objects eastly Injured or destroyed by vandals and unauthorized collectors of curios for sale or exhibition for a fee. The former departmental estimate of $5,000, which has failed to receive the approval of Con gress, should by all means be renewed." ASK FOR RESTORATION OF ARMY POST CANTEEN Petition of 2,300 Women to Be Pre sented to Congress at Early Date. A petition signed by about 2,300 women ?wives, daughters and relatives of army officers stationed at various army posts in the United States and its possessions? aklng for the restoration of the army canteen, will be presented to Congress in a few days. Mm. Wood a Signer. Among the signers are Mrs. Leonard Wood, wife of the chief of staff; Mrs. Fred D. Grant, wife of general command ing the Division of the Atlantic; Mrs. Arthur Murray, wife of the general com manding the Western Division; Mrs. Thomas H. ? Barry, wife of the command ant of the Military Academy, and many other women whose husbands are high in army rank. Substance of Petition. The petitions says, in part: "Having seen and felt the effects of the act of February 2, 1901. prohibiting the sale on military reservations of beer and light wines; realising from an experience extending over ten years that the effect of that act has been injurious to disci pline, harmful to morality, and conducive to Intemperance; having deeply at heart the truest Interests of the army, and, there fore, the nation; believing that from our close relation and intimate association with our soldiers we are better judges of the effect on them of such legislation than those who look In from without, or who act upon mere theory or generalisation; we, the mothers, daughters, sisters, and ?wives of officers and enlisted men do re speetfaly urge and earnestly request in the Interest of mscfpUwa. morality, aad temperance the repeal of the said act" ? 1 Coal Miners' Course to Be Outlined at Convention. HINGES ON WAGE SCALE United Mine Workers Convene To morrow?Contracts Expire in Spring. I'NDIAKAiFOLJS, January 15.?Whether there -will be a strike among the anthra cite coal miners this spring will depend largely on the action taken at the an nual convention of the United (Mine Work ers of America, which will convene here tomorrow and will continue In session for about two weeks. The contracts between the anthracite miners and the operators regulating the scale of wages will expire this spring and one of the chief topics of discussion at the convention-will be the wage* scaie. The committee in the eastern district had made arrangements to meet the operators and make their demands two weeks ago, but, owing to a difference' of opinion within their ranks, it was decided to postpone the negotiations until after the convention. Administration Is Wary. When asked' his opinion of the probable result of the convention's consideration of the wage scale question Secretary .fed win Perry stated that no hint of the changes recommended by President White would -be given until the opening of the big meeting. This precaution is taten to prevent foes of the present administration attending? the convention fully prepared to defeat any legislative measures intro duced by the executive officers. An ad ance publication of the president's Te port has been the means of frustrating the well iaid plans of the executive of ficers on more than one oocasion in the past. ~ For several months President White has been touring the country, addressing local unions and conferring with the va rious leaders of the miners' organizations. It is* supposed that the -wage scale ques tion was the chief subject of these con ferences and speeches, but this cannot be learned definitely, as President White re cuses to be interviewed. Several Amendments Projected. All of the twenty-eight districts com prising the American organisation will be represented by delegates and the presi dents of the districts, and if the usual custom Is carried out these presidents will constitute a committee to consider questions on the wage scale, which prom ises to be the warmest proposition the delegates have handled in years. Reso lutions on the subject from miners from all parts of the country will be read and submitted to the committee of district presidents to report back to the conven tion for final action. The suggestions to be made by President White which have aroused the curiosity of the entire organi zation are expected to go a long way in influencing the recommendations of the committee. Several constitutional amendments and the launching of a campaign for admin istrative economy are other important matters to be discussed by the delegates. The amendments to be proposed are purely technical and will cause no ma terial change in the meaning of the rules now governing conventions. One recommendation that Is almost cer tain to receive the backing of a major ity of the delegates provides for the In sertion of a provision in the constitution for the establishment of a court In every district of the Union for the purpose of trying members* who are charged with violating any policies of the organization Hay Probe Theft Charges. The leaders in favor of this recom mendation declare the need of such a court will. be made evident if the com mittee investigating the theft of votes in the national election of ^ 1911 flies charges against any one for being re sponsible for the disappearance of 10,000 ballots that are supposed to have been taken from the union vault in the State Life building here. The missing votes were cast by the miners of several Illi nois districts known to be strong sup porters of President White. Thomas L. Lewis, the opposing 6andidate, who was president at the time, has repeatedly declared that he knows absolutely noth ing about the theft The committee con ducting the investigation of the disap pearance of the ballots will make a re port to the convention, tout it is not known whether any one will be accused of the theft of the votes. Recommendations also will be made for the purpose of securing a more specifi cally worded constitution. The present loose wording of the constitution, accord ing* to Secretary Perry, has placed the organisation in embarrassing situations in several previous conventions. Expect 1,600 Delegates. When the convention is called to order it is expected that 1,600 delegates will be in their seats. The anti-admlnlstration men are determined to defeat the objects of President White and his backers, and the sessions will undoubtedly be ex tremely bitter. John Mitchell, former president (fit the United Miners, is expected to attend the convention for the purpose of supporting President White and his staff of officers in the event of an attempt on the part of ex-President Lewis and Mb adherents to wage a flght on the policies Indorsed by the present administration. _ The committees on constitutional amehdments, resolutions and grievances held meetings here for the last three days, and have now completed the reports that will hp made when called for by the convention. , The regular legislative sessions of the convention will not begin until Wednes day morning, as tomorrow will be spent In hearing addresses by Gov. Marshall of Indiana, Mayor Shank of Indianapolis and C. C. Hadle^, president of the Com mercial Club. OLDEST frame house. Dwelling Erected in 1048 in South ampton, H. Y., Torn Down. SOUTHAMPTON, N. Y., January 15. The oldest, frame house in the United States is being raxed by workmen today by order of the authorities. It was built la 1648 by Thomas Sayre, an English gentleman, who came to this country In Cromwell's time and was one of the origi nal settlers near Southampton In 1610. The Sayre House is In the center of the village and has long been a point of his toric interest. With proper caretaklng the old house would have stood for a century yet, but it was allowed to decay and crumble. . .... u. All the material in the old building with the exception of the glass was homemade. The timber, boards, shingles, laths and brick were turned out within a block or two of the house and even the nails were manufactured by the old village black smith. Huge fireplaces warmed It. During the revolutionary war the house was used by British officers- The prop erty is owned by a direct descendant of Sayre. WELL Known PAINTER DEAD.

SIX PERSONS OVERCOME BY GAS era FUMES Medical Help Summoned in Time and Victims Are Now Out of Danger. LOUISVaLL?, Ky.. January 16.?Six persons became unconscious from as phyxiation Saturday night at the home of W. H. Haney and were almost dead before the cause of their sudden illness was learned and they -were carried to another part of the house, where they could be resuscitated. A defective in stantaneous gas heater was the cause. Sarah Haney, three years old, was the first victim, and her mother and four others, whom she summoned for assist ance, were overcome. The child first com plained of drowsiness and while her mother was reading a story to her she swooned. The mother rushed Into the hallway and screamed for help. The other women hurried into the apartment and were assisting in reviving the child, whom they supposed to be. suffering from ptomaine poisoning, when Mrs. Haney fell unconscious. One by one the others succumbed. D. W. Betts had followed his wife down from their apartment and summoned medical help. Tbe physicians were working with the victims when Mr. Haney, who was away from home at the time his child took 111, returned and discovered the leak in the heater and realized they were all being asphyxiated. By that time the rescuers were becoming ill. The women and child were removed to another room, but it was several hours before the Haney child was re stored to consciousness. The victims are all out of danger. CUTS OUT HIS FEED. Deserted Husband Refuses to Eat Until Wife Returns, CHICAGO, January 15^?Albert Braun, manager of a specialty company here, has been deserted by his wife and he asserts that he will eat nothing until she returns. She has been gone nearly forty-eight houis and Braun declared last night that he had partaken of no food since she left When Mrs. Braun went away she left a note telling him that she was leaving be cause she thought she was a hindrance to hie success. That day he received1 an increase in salary. He hurried home to tell her of his luck, but when he arrived there she was gone. The couple have been married less than a year. HOW NATURE CURES CONSTIPATION Ail why drags are fcrtag used leas aatf leas for that parjsse. The custom of Internal Bathing for keeping the Intestines pure, clean and free from poisonous matter?cur ing constipation, biliousness and the more senoUs diseases which they bring on?has become so universally popular, and so scientifically correct to its application, as to merit the most serious consideration. Drugs for this purpose have proven that theit doses must be constantly increased to be effective, that they force Nature instead of assisting her, and, once taken, must be continued. On the contrary, the scientifically constructed Internal Bath gently as sists Nature, but is infinitely more thorough in its cleanliness than any drug, no matter what its nature. The J. B. L. Cascade, which is now being used and praised by thousands and. prescribed by many eminent physicians, is now being shown and explained by the Affleck Drug Stores,* 15th and F streets n.w. and 904 G st. n.w. Its action is so simple and natural as to immediately appeal to all com* toon sense. That is the reason for its great and deserved popularity.
