The last regular meeting for the present
corps of officers of Washington Council
was held Tuesday evening, with Grand
Knight Joseph A. Mudd. in the chair, and
a large attendance of members of the
council present. With a few exceptions
the present officers were re-elected at
the annual meeting: held October 8. so
that there will be very little change in
the policy of the council for the coming
year. Rev. Father Morriss has been selected
as the chaplain for the council for
the ensuing year and James K. Colliflower
has been appointed lecturer by
Grand Knight Mudd.
The meeting of Keane Council, held
Thursday evening, was very lively, and
several matters of interest to all the
members of the order having in view the
question of more commodious quarters,
were taken up for consideration by the
grand knight, Charles \V. Darr, and by
a number of members of the council. The
state deputy, who was present also, participated
In the discussion.
The regu ar monthly meeting of the'
chapter was held Friday evening at
which a number of matters of detail in
connection with the two functions held
under the auspices of the chapter, tne
vesper service and the Co.umbus day
celebration, were disposed of. The chap- j
ter is being warmly congratulated on the
success of both of these affairs.

Simon Woif Has Closely
Watched City's Progress.
Noted Citizen Celebrates Seventy- i
Sixth Birthday Tomorrow. \
Other Nations Have Been Influenced \
Kir TIT am /I a*r i?l A aK^ amama '
United States, He Declares.
"Fifty years ago I found this city a'
?trargiing village. I have seen it grow
'rom that to be 'a thing of beauty' and
into what will be 'a joy forever." I have
watched Washington become the representative
capital of a representative nation."
This, according to Simon Wolf, will be
ane of his principal thoughts tomorrow,
the seventy-sixth anniversary of his
birth. It would not be proper to say
that a birthday anniversary celebration
is to be held tomorrow by Mr. Wolf, who
is one of the best known lawyers, philanthorplsts,
socialogists and authors of
the cap.tal, for whatever celebration <
there is to be of the fact that at seventysix
he is hale and hearty, of quick mind,
alert speech and springy walk, will be by
uis relatives and friends. Mr. Wolf intends
to spend the day quietly in his
usual routine.
Cablegrams, telegrams and letters of
feiiciiat.on, accompanied by gifts, have
begun to arrive at Mr. Wolf's home, in
recognition of the day. Born in Bavaria,
October :X 1836. Mr. Wolf came to
America with his grandparents when he ,
was twelve years old. and settled first in
Cleveland, Ohio, later coming to Washington,
since which time he has had a
career which has made him not only one [
of the notable men of the capital, but '
which has gained for him the reputation .
of being one of the most widely known '
Jews in the world. j
Has Great Pride in City. ^
Discussing yesterday with a Star re- '
porter the events of former days as j
contrasted with those of the present (
Mr. Wolf spoke with an almost paternal \
affection of the city of his adoption and i
his pride in its growth and beauty. His J
talk of world capitals, and Washington t
in particular, led to a discussion of na- j
tions, of the voters who make countries, j
and of the character that makes voters. |
He is keenly aiive to the present Issues ,
of the day with respect to the approaching
national elections, and he declares
he sees with breadth of vision "the passing
of the craze for progressivlsm."
"I have been a republican since the
days of Abraham Lincoln," Mr. Wolf
said. "1 voted first in '57, the state and
county tickets, at Uhrichsvllle, Ohio. #
could not vote when Buchanan was elected
in '56, prior to the civil war. I began
to read law in the office of Mr. Justice
Joseph Vance, in Philadelphia, in
1859, and in that year and I860 I was
just beginning to get into the root of
"I am a Taft man. but I don't see that
there is very much difference in the
problems that confront the voter this
year from those that have confronted
him in former years. Of course, just before
the civil war the problem presented
to the voters involved the fate of the
republic. Nowadays, the fate' of the nation
is very seldom at stake, no matter
how much the politicians try to convince
the voter that it is. ]
Craze Will Pass Away.
"This craze for progresslveness will j
pass away. The good sense of the peo- j
pie will reassert itself. We had the i
greenback craze in 1876, and we had the j
sixteen-to-one craze in 1896, and they
have passed away, although as much
howl v as raised about them at the time
as is being raised about progresslveness '
"We are always progressing in the <
T'nited States. I should say that our i
most strik.ng progress has been along

the line of morals. Nowadays we take
ho'd of more and more subjects that
lead to the general betterment of the
nation with less and less effort. We
take better care of children than we
ever did, and we see more minutely to
the care of the Insane and the criminal.
The establishment of more and
more playgrounds for children all over
the country and the growth of settlement
work everywhere serve to showthat
our higher ideals are in force, and
110 one, therefore, can tell me that we
we retrograding or in danger. We did
not pay as much attention to these
moral things when I was younger.
Causes of Progress.
"Much of our progress, of course, has
aeen due to various wonderful inventions
ind discoveries made in the last rtfty
rears. These have brought the nations
is well as Individuals closer together,
md it is interesting to note that the
American has led in these inventions and
iiscoverles, as he has in almost every
line of human endeavor. I believe, for
Instance, that the French revolution owed
x large share of its success to t>.e fact
that the Americans won their flight for
Independence, and I believe Benjamin
Franklin and Lafayette were the two
great factors that brought the French
revolution about. German immigration
to the United States and German-American
thought have had a tremendous influence
on the German people, sttmulatirt.republican
Ideas in that empire, so tnat
there will eventually be a republic in
Sermany such as there is here. The i
Irish cause has iarge.y been fought out
In the United States and whatever England
eventually yields to Ireland will be
largely due to the influence exerted by
"So with Russia and Russian affairs.
In no other country' in the world has
public opinion ever so. swayed legislation
as It did in this country when I'resiJent
Taft and 'Congress gave notice to
Russia of the abrogation of the passport
treatv. when American citizens, because
they were Jews, were denied tneir rights
under the treaty when they went to Russia.
World One Vast Empire.
"By American public opinion the condition
of the Jew in Russia will be
ameliorated, eventually, thus proving conmusively
what a world influence republisan
institutions are capable of exerting.
American public opinion and republican
institutions are making it plain that 'a
Chinese wall' no longer hems in one nation,
and that the whole world is one
cast empire of wireless thought for human
"The policy that directed China and Japan
to send its young men to the United
States to receive education has borne
fruit, and shown what American opinion
md republican institutions can do in the
wonderful changes that have taken place
in those two countries, notab.y in China,
which, although it has only recently become
a republic, gives promise of
streneth and nernetuitv Who would have
supposed that the French republic wornd
iave lasted for foWy-two years? Its most
)ptimistic friends never save it credit lor
the ability to .ast more than twenty years,
ind yet it now seems as if it were firmly
established for all time. It just goes to
show that the liberalism of one nation,
juch as the American, exercises a simi.ar
influence on other nations less fortunate
in their environment, and what France
tias done all the other nations of the
world can do.
Discusses Panama Canal.
"The marvel of what France has done
within ihe past fifty years is nothing like
is great as another marvel?the building
of the Panama canal. I am glad to have
ived to see the building of it. I have
seen what a wonderful effect the Suez
anal had upon the commerce of the
world, but that, and the growth of commerce
to come with the Panama canal,
will be nothing but an inciden al compared
with the colossal effect the Panimma
canal will exercise upon human
affairs. It will be the greatest factor in
the prepetuation of world peace.
"I should not be surprised to see the
year 1915 commemoiated for all time as
the second most important date in the
his.ory of the wor d, the first being 177?>,
the year of the Ame: ican Declaration of
independence and the beginning of the
constructive work the American republic
has done among the nations.
"What about religion? Why, the only
re'iglon worth observing is 'Love Thy
Neighbor as Thyself." If the preachers
of all denomina ions talked less doctrine
and more humanity, there won d be less
friction between the different faiths, and
a higher standa: d could be established as
between man and man.
"I would say to the eJwish young man.
No, I would say to all young men, of
whatever faith or race, be Americans!

to corral him in the Interest of a

Future of Washington.
"One sees a good many things in the
course of fifty years. Fifty years ago I s
found this city of Washington a strag- ?
erline- villaee. With rain** own eves I
' have watched it grow from that to be 'a'
thing- of beauty' and into what will be 'a f
joy forever." With mine own eyes I c
have watched it become the representa- ^
tive capital of a representative nation. !:
That is a privilege, sr.rely. In this
growth I have, in my humble way, contributed,
co-operating with Gov. Shepherd,
Crosby S. Noyes and other kindred a
spirits who saw with prophetic vision the s
possibilities that have become realities $
and have enhanced and enriched the nation's
capital. ^
"The future has still greater prospects. J
I expect to see the day when this will be
the national center of education and re- r
fineinent?a capital far ahead of anything
that the old world can produce, containing,
perhaps even in one great buildin-, S
all the elements of human culture brought t
home to the nation's capital for our s
common citizenship." t

: boats that brought small cargoes. One
came from tl^ beds In the tov.er liver
and the oysters she brought sold ai <??
cents per bushel. The other came from
Poc-omoke sound, on the eastern shore of
Chesapeake hay. She had tine oysters
j aboard and they found ready sale to the
j dealers uptown at W? cents per bushel.
, The Potomac river boat so d out and left,
j early in the day and the tastern shore
! boat had but a few bushels aboard lata
yesterday evening.
After dark, however, the situation was
saved hy the arrival of the schooner Silver

known that several other vessels were
