Yesterday's session of the naval hoard j was held behind ciosed doors, with Com- i mander Richard Douglass of the supply I ship Glacier presiding. All of the offi- j cers of the Vicksburg were questioned and a report of the findings of the board was forwarded to the department in Washington. Say She Was Struck. It is alleged hy the police of Vallejo, who conducted a separate investigation, that they have evidence to show that Mrs. Muller did not fall down the gangway. as at first reported, hut that she ! was struck on the head by a beer bottle, : hurled by the wife of an officer with : whom she had been dining A second woman included in the midnight dinner party, it is understood by j the police is an employe of a candy store ] In San Francisco. The identity of the two officers alleged to have entertained the women on the gunboat has not yet been made public. First News of Affair. The first news of the affair received by the police came through a telephone message from the cruiser South Dakota, docked near the Vicksburg. A woman telephoned from the South Dakota to Dr. Dorran of this city to send an ambulance to meet a launch, carrying an Injured woman across Vallejo channel. The person who converst-tl with the doctor over the telephone said she was Mrs. Emil Swcnson. wife of tiie chief gunner aboard tlie South Dakota.

This is an aeroboat, the latest tiling in the hydro-aeroplano line, it is the design of Glenn II. Gurtiss. the aviator, and is the culmination of all the development he has done with the lir and water craft. The aeroplane lias i spread of wings nearly forty feet, and the "boat" is about the same length. It Is a regular boat body, very lightly built, ind hitched to the Hying machine just beneath the lower main plane. Fifty Miles an Hour on Water. The engine is seventy-five or eighty lorsepower and will drive the boat on the water at the rate of fifty miles an hour. Faster than this the craft will not stay on the water at all, but rises in the air, where it will make a speed of sixty miles an hour. The passengers sit in the body of the l?oat side by side and are protected by a spray hood In front as in fast power boats. The craft has been tried out by J.ieut. Sllyson and others of the naval officers md pronounced satisfactory. It is being 1 wrought to the navy yard for some special I experiments which it is hoped to com- , tlete liefore the river freezes. The l?oat ' ias not yet l?een set p. but the mechanics tre at work on It. Reverts to Original Idea. It is curious that this is In some re- j speeds a reversion to the original idea of j a hydro-aeroplane that Gurtiss tided as j lar Dac-K as WOK. He was then just beginning to fly ami the old "June Bug," the first of his successful aeroplanes, was making her first flights. He wanted a smooth field from which to rise ahd tried putting the aeroplane on a couple of light boat pontoons on the lake at Hamniondsport, N. Y., where he was practicing. At that time the aeroplane had neither the lift nor the motor power to get olT the water and it was not till at San Die-go, Cal., in the winter of 1011, that lie was able to make the first flights with the "Triad," the first of the successful hydro-aeroplanes. Since that time the development has gone ahead and now the hydro is hack. In some respects, just where it made Its unsuccessful start.

"My trip around the globe convinced me," says Mrs. Catt, "that my own countrywomen are the most fettered, sartorially, to be found anywhere. Compared with the Chinese woman, the American woman is almost as helpless as a baby. It is time for the western woman to kick herself free of the swaddling draperies which the Parisian sends over to us. We should declare our independence in dress as we have in politics, and the sooner we do it the better for health, happiness and the cause." Mrs. Catt advocates the Chinese dress, or a modification of it, because it is the "most sanitary, healthful, comfortable and artistic costume a woman can wear." She describes the Chinese costume as including "loose, straight-hanging trousers, made of silk or other material, and over tills garment a straight, loose coat which comes below the knees usually and buttons over on one side.

Blease. * a t RICHMOND. Va.. December 7. ? The conference of governors was caught in a q storm of personal remarks and defiant r utterances just before the noon adjourn- c ment yesterday, when Gov. Emmet * O'Neal of Alabama offered anti-lynclilng 0 resolutions. He said he represented a state with a large negro vote. Gov. O'Neal prefaced his resolution with the explanation that a certain member of r the conference had made remarks that a had gone forth to the world and which c were defiant of law and order and repug- t nant to law-abiding vitisens. The confer- t ence, jie said, without delay, should re- o pudlate those words as contrary to its 2 views. Gov. Gilchrist of Florida seconded 1 the O'Neal resolution, but Gov. Mann of Virginia offered a substitute, as follows: "Resolved, That it is the sentiment of the conference of the governors, in session at Richmond, Va., December 6, 1912, that v the whole power of the several states f should be used whenever necessary to g protect persons accused of crime of any kind against the violence of moos, and to provide for speedy, orderly and impartial * trials by courts of jurisdiction, to the u end that the laws for the protection of p life and property be duly enforced and c respected by the people." p How the Members Voted. e The governors voting for the Mann resolution were: O'Neal, Alabama; Gil- y christ, Florida; Brown. Georgia; P.aisted, Maine; Goldsborough, Maryland; Had- ^ ley, Missouri; Oddie, Nevada; Dix. New * York; Tener, Pennsylvania; Spry, Utah; Mann, Virginia; McGovern, Wisconsin; a Carey, Wyoming; Vessey, South Dakota? o 14. Against the resolution: Donaghey, t Arkansas; Baldwin, Connecticut; Haw- " ley, Idaho; Kltchln. North Carolina?1. * These last four governors favored the 51 sentiment, but thought the resolution In terfered with the privileges of members 0 of the conference in expressing their views. M Gov. Ulease, in the discussion of the c> Mann resolution, was taken to task by a F dozen governors. Gov. Carey of Wyo- & ining denounced him for "claiming a monopoly for South Carolina of the respect of the white man for women." Gov. Hadley of Missouri commented that the floor of the conference hall was not a "clearing house for local and personal I' controversies." Gov. Goldsborough of o Maryland said he stood solidly by the resolution because it was a matter of t right. Gov. Dtx of New York thought it would lie "most unwise" not to adopt the ei resolution. Gov. O'Neal of Alabama as- v sorted his belief that the entire confer- o ence had been belittled by the South o Carolinian's remarks, and that It was the sworn duly of every executive to uphold P me law ana me enrorcement or law. c Blease Defiant. F When a motion was made by Gov. r Baldwin of Connecticut, seconded by c< 3ov. Hadley of Missouri, that the sub- F ?titute resolution from Gov. Mann bt? !' aid on the table there came cries of 0. 'No!" from the auditorium. Gov. Blease t! i rose, and. purple with anger, yelled ti jetween gritted teeth: "Pass the resolutions: Pass them! ^ iVhat do I care? When the governors *? who vote in favor of the resolutions shall f' tave gone into political oblivion I will * >e wearing the senatorial toga, repre- ?! senting the people of South Carolina in :he highest council of this great nation." F"rom the gallery came a few hisses md Mr. Blease cried: "So I am hissed, am 1? Hisses are the applause of geese." p Still defiant as the roll was called. Gov. ai Blease remained silent when South Caro- D lina's name was reached. When the vote ai was announced he arose and said: p "South Carolina did not votf because l? ? It Is of absolutely no consequence to South Carolina what this conference docs, i'ou may eject me from this conference, but I shall not apologize to any man or let of men. "Pass the resolutions." he told the >ther governors. "I scorn them. When kou have retired to the *haue of private Ife and are forgotten. 1 will be known rroni ore end of the country to the ither."
