Arion Gesang Verein Defers
Action Over Excise
Notwithstanding the radical changes in
Its custom and in the customs of its in
dividual . members of entertaining the
woman relatives and friends of members
on Sunday, which are made necessary by
the new excise law that goes into effect
in the District July 1, the subject from a
club standpoint was ignored at the semi
annual meeting of the Arion Gesang
Verein, one of the leading German sing
ing societies of the District, last even
ing. Individual members Voiced their
opinion in a number of instances, but the
society itself concluded to ignore the sub
ject for the present at least, although it
is not improbable the matter will be
taken up later by the United German So
cieties of the District, it was said, and
by them with the national organization.
The custom of spending an evening of
pleasure with their families on Sunday,
the one day of the week when the ces
sation of business makes it possible, it
is explained is one that was brought by
the Germans from their'fatherland, and
k has heretofore been one of the- special
features of their American club life. "To
^p.ve it suppressed by fanatics who know
nothing of it and who seem to limply
take a pride in forcing their own belief
upon others" said Vice President Wil
liam Wlegmann, "does not gibe well with
the boast that America is a land of en
lightened liberty."
Reports were received and acted upon
from the various officers and committees
of the society and tentative arrangements
were made for an excursion to Chesa
peake Beach at a time to be set here
after. Plans for the celebration of the
twenty-eighth anniversary of the society
Wednesday evening were announced.
They include a musical and literary en
tertainment, a banquet and a dance at
the E street clubhouse. The recent
masquerade ball is reported to have been
a splendid financial success.

Secretary of State Bryan and
J. A. MacDonald Address
Y. M. C. A. Meeting.
Introduced by William Jennings Bryan
?in his first public appearance since he be
came Secretary of State, and with Jose
phus Daniels, the new Secretary of the
Navy, occupying a seat on the platform.
J. A. MacDonald, editor of a Toronto,
Canada, newspaper, addressed a meeting
under the auspices of the Y. M. C. A., at
the National Theater yesterday afternoon,
in which the latter criticized those who
desire a political union between Canada
and the United States.
In his introductory remarks Mr. Bryan
said, in part:
.".Emerson wrote an essay on compensa
tion which made a deep impression upon
me when I read It and has often comc
into my memory since. Every position
that one occupies, whether in private or
in public life, has its responsibilities and
its pleasures, and I suppose that this rep
resents the most pleasant part of the po
sition with whlfch I am connected.
Semi-Official Appearance.
"I am a connecting link between the
President and the outside world, and as
such I suppose it is not unfitting that I
should appear upon such an occasion as
this. This might be called a semi-official
appearance and my first in public. The
speaker on this occasion is a citizen of
another land. That makes it appropriate
that he should be welcomed to this plat
form in the nation's capital by one who
represents the government in Its foreign
"If It were proper for me to say so I
might tell you that he stands in Canada
as Gladstone for so many years stood in
Great Britain, the representative of Chris
tianity applied to government. The fact
that he comes from a country so close to
us gives me an added enjoyment. He
comes as a representative of a country,
a neighbor with whom we have been at
peace for now almost an hundred years.
Laurler, the great premier of that coun
try for so many years, expressed a beau
tiful sentiment: *
Advances "Nobler Ideal."
"I cannot use his exact language, but
X shall not forget the thought that his
language expressed. When some one in
his country expressed a fear that closer
commercial relations might suggest na
tional unity he answered that there was
even a nobler ideal than a country con
tinent wide in extent. It was two coun
tries with but an imaginary line between
and yet living as friends side by side, with
no rivalry except in good will. We are
soon "to celebrate this century of peace
and I am sure that our good friend will
enter most heartily into that celebration
and I can pledge him the earnest co
operation of the United States in em
phasizing this delightful occasion when it
"There is another reason why I am glad
to make this my tlrst appearance since
the acceptance of the portfolio of state.
It is because this is a religious occasion.
As I know of no foundation upon which
a moral code can be built except religion? 1
religion, as defined by Tolstoy, as the
relation that man ilxes between himself
and his God?so I know of no foundation
upon which remaining international peace
can be built except that spirit of brother
hood which the Founder of our religion
taught us."
Mr. MacDonald'b Address.
"The words which Mr. Bryan has
spoken." Mr. MacDonald said, "are con- j
slstent with a campaign which resulted
in the election of a new administration,
and the spirit not confined to any one
leader or to any one party. Speaking
from without. I say that not in my day
have I seen so hopeful a movement in
this republic.
"So long as the Dominion of Canada'
remains an Integral and growingly in
fluential part of the empire of Great
Britain, so long will it be a bond between
you and the mother country.
"Two years or more ago the then Sec
retary of State, Mr. Knox, said to me:
'Instead of our desiring a political union
of these two lands it Is to our advan
tage that Canada should stay out of the
republic and should stay in the empire ' I,
asked him why, and this was his an
swer: 'The power of America today is I
the power of the United States and the i
power of Canada, plus the power of Brit- 1
ain. Should Canada separate from the!
empire and become either independent or
a state in this republic there will be no i
plua' The more seriously you reflect
upon your own situation and the more
seriously your new Secretary of Stat*
will reflect upon his obligation the mort
will you and will we be thankful that
that plus Britain means for us Cana
dians and for you. too, not only safe
guarding on the Pacific and safeguard
ing on the Atlantic, but the union of the
whole English-speaking people and their
responsibility to all the world."

ored man who is alleged to have drawn
a revolver on Detective Forteney when
he was placed under arrest Saturday,
will be turned over to a detective from
Selma tonight In a cell at the police sta
tion Saturday night the prisoner denied
his identity and claimed he was Hardy
Cary, a New York cotton broker, but
yesterday he sent for Detective Forteney,
admitted his identity and told the story
of the alleged bank shortage.
Hunter told the detective that he had
been employed as janitor of a penny sav
ings bank in Selma, and that later he
was promoted to paying teller. Ten days
ago, he stated, one of the officials of the
bank told him there was a shortage of
about $4,500 in the accounts of the bank
and that it would be for him to ex
The prisoner said he told the official
t-hat he knew nothing of the shortage,
but the official, he declared, advised him
to leave.
"I took his advice," said Hunter, "and
also took $2,500 of the bank's money. I
had $1,006 in the bank, and my father's
account was $1,500. and I took money
enough to cover the two accounts."
Hunter produced two bank books, show
ing deposits aggregating $2,450. He had
deposited $2,300 in the Metropolitan Trust
Company's bank in New York and $150
in the National Bank of Washington. He
explained that he went from Selma to
New York, and came here to witness the
inaugural ceremonies.

Forecaster' Promises Washington
Mild Temperature, Moderate .Winds
and Little or No Bain.
Springlike weather, with balmy temper
ature. moderate winds and little or no
rain, is the forecast for the week, issued
today by the weather bureau.
The distribution of pressure over the
northern hemisphere," says the forecast,
"is such as to Indicate that the tempera
ture during the current week will aver
age near the normal over practically, all
parts of the country. Precipitation dur
ing the week will be generally light and
local, and it is not probable that any
general storm Mill cross the country dur
ing the week."
Unofficial Prophets Coincide.
Unofficial gather prophets, basing
their prediction on the appearance of the
new moon, the behavior of the birds and
other familiar weather signals, say about
the same thing. Mocking birds, cardinals,
bluebirds, grackles, meadow larks, sev
eral varieties of song sparrows artd other
migratory birds have made their appear
ance in this region, and in the case of
many of these species nest building has
already been started.
Weather prophets of the countryside
say this means that winter is over and
that although there will undoubtedly be
short spells of bad weather, no mort
really severe conditions are to be antici
pated. The new moon, according to
these observers, indicates a month, o.
fairly dry weather, and many farmers in
the vicinity of Washington, on the
strength of the moon's appearance, plan
ned to begin farming operations today.

The Good Fellow
You're welcome at the booze bazaar while you have got a
roll; they'll say you are a shining star, a genial, princely soul.
The low-browed gent who sells the suds will
call you "Cap" or "Judge," while you have bul
lion in your duds to buy his baneful budge. And
all the mirthful hangers-on will cheer your wit
and sense, while merrily the demijohn goes
round at your expense. They'll greet *with wide
ecstatic grin the stalest of your jokes, while you
have cash to buy the gin or fix the crowd with
smokes. But when your little roll is lost, and
you all busted are, there falls a chill antarctic
frost about the shining bar. And when you fix
your thirsty gaze upon the bottled shelf, the
gent who smirked in other days, growls fiercely,
"Chase yourself!" The loafers eye you with dis
dain, who once said you were It, and grumble that you cause them
pain, when you'd display your wit. The days when you showed up
so strong no one can now recall; and if you hang around too long
they'll push you through the wall. Good fellows go the same old
gait, the gay, high-rolling chumps; and they will meet the same old
fate, and bump the same old bumps.

Friends in Congress and Elsewhere
Reported Behind Candidacy
for Local Office.
Humors connecting the name of Cotter
T. Bride with the position of United
States marshal for the District of Colum
bia are tout the forerunners of a strong
movement which is to be made In his
behalf by a combination of his friends in
Congress and elsewhere, according to one
of his friends. Aside from the fact that
Mr. Bride is known to be a warm per
sonal friend of Secretary of State Bryan,
it is explained there Is a large number of
men in both houses of Congress who have
arranged to go to the front for him.
Gov. William Sulser of New York, with
a number of others prominent in the
politics of that state, it Lb said, heads a
number of influential men out of Con
gress who regard Mr. Bride highly for
what he has done himself for his party
and the part he has taken in some public
Mr. Bride, it is claimed, has always
been a loyal democrat. While he is
friendly with all the local democrats, it
is said, and can have their support if he
desires it, yet he has kept aloof from
factional differences, while contributing
to the general welfare of the party when
ever it was necessary.
Mr. Bride today would not deny that
he was a candidate for the position of
United States marshal. When asked if
he were a candidate, he said: "Some very
good friends of mine have suggested the
matter to me, and I am considering it. 1
feel certain if they decide to press mt
for the position their names and influence
in the party command sufficient weight to
insure me a respectful hearing at the
hands of the President. But at this time
I feel it would become me better to be
modest in speech."
Miss Ellen M. Stone Presents Claim
of the Alabamians.
Miss Ellen M. Stone, the American mis

Albania last night at the Fourth Presby

MIbs Stone said an attempt would be
made to have Congress pass a law re
quiring the Turkish government to re
fund the $60,000 ransom paid by her
friends, as she declared that the Turkish
government was responsible for her cap
ture. She said that the Turk must be

Local Dealers Blame Western
Storms for Predicted
Advance Here.
The snowstorms and blizzards that have
prevailed in many parts of the west the
past two weeks are given as the reason
for a probable boost in the retail prices
of fresh meats in the Washington mar
kets. Local dealers say they have been
Informed of advances in price to be made
effective today or tomorrow, and add that
these advances are such as to make it
necessary for them to put up the retail
prices of all kinds of meats to their cus
Just how large the price Increases may
be none of the retailers was willing to
say this morning. One or two of them
professed to believe that no general ad
vance will be made in retail prices, but
others predicted advances of from 2 to 10
cents a pound on all the higher priced
cuts of beef, with increases of 2 to 4
cents a pound on pork and mutton. The
reason given by one of the big retail deal
ers at Center Market today was:
"Snowstorms and bad weather in the
west have prevented the shipments of
cattle and other stock to the Chicago
stockyards. The Receipts there have in
the past two weeks fallen off to an
alarming extent. For instance, Saturday's
receipts were less than 25 per cent of the
receipts for the same day a year ago.
The result is that the packers are shov
ing up their prices, as their storage stocks
are running very low.
"The retailers' margin has been so slight
for the past few months that we sim
ply can't stand this last advance, and we
shall have to pass it on to our customers.
There is some consolation in the fact
that spring is advancing rapidly, and be
fore many weeks there will be a lot of
crrass cattle on the market, which will
bring about a reduction in prices."

Liberty Granted by Judge Pugh's
Baling Not Popular With All
Many local barber shops were open
yesterday, the proprietors taking ad
vantage of Judge Pugh's ruling in the
Police Court last week that the regula
tion stipulating that barber shops be
closed Sundays was not in effect. The
shops downtown kept open in the morn
ing only, but a great many shops in the
residential sections of the city were open
all day.
This is the first time a barber shop
has been open Sunday unless the pro*
prietor was willing to take the tthanee
of arrest since 180B, when the Old cor
poration of Washington made regulations
designed to close them up the first day
of the week. Abram C. Luber, proprietor
of a shop in the Biggs building, was ar
rested several months ago and charged
with violating this provision. The case
was not called for trial until last Fri
day, when a motion to quash the infor
mation was granted toy Judge Pugh on
the gtounds that t^e organic act of .Con
gress which changed the form of gov
ernment in this city wiped out this old
regulation with all of the others made
by the mayor and common council of the
city of Washington.
Not all of the barbers of the city are
in sympathy with keeping open Sunday.
The proprietor of one of the larger down
town establishments said today that the
life of the "Sunday opening" would be
very short. "Under the old system the
shops stayed open late enough Saturday
night to handle the trade." he declared.
"I believe that the sentiment here is
against keeping open Sunday. There is
scarcely any doubt that a strong fight
will be waged against this innovation."
Eisenhart Also Said He Had $52,000
and Police Were Called.
Michael E. Eisenhart attracted ths
attention of pedestrians on Connecticut
avenue yesterday noon by standing in
front of a florist's establishment and
talking to the blossoms.
"You are not as pretty as they are
down in Florida," he is said to havo re
marked to the blossoms in the window.'
When Eisenhart remarked that he
had $52,000 in cash In his pocket those
who heard him notified the police. De
tectives Pratt and Howlett arrested
him as being of unsound mind and
turned him over to Sanitary Officer
Eisenhart gave his address as 2722
North 15th street, Philadelphia, and
said he also had a home in Denver,
Col. He repeated the statement that
he had $52,000 in his pockets, but when
searched he was found penniless.
"And I have a railroad mileage
ticket," the visitor stated.
"Where is it?" . - .. V
"I buried it." ,
Eisenhart also told the police he was
a personal friend of William Jennings
Bryan. He was sent to Washington
Asylum Hospital.
