SCORES SUFFRAGE CAUSE
Heflin Lauds Southern Woman
Who Has Truly Been
Representative James Thomas Heflin
of Alabama was the chief orator at a
celebration of the birthday anniver
sary of Jefferson Davis, held under the
auspices of the United Daughters of
the Confederacy at the Mount Vernon
.Methodist Episcopal Church last night,
j He praised the south, the women of
the south and the history of the south,
; and then launched into a bitter attack
on woman suffrage.
Mr. Heflin voiced the prayer that
"our women may be kept in the
j straight and narow path and far from
| the ballot box." Giving women the
, ballot, he said, would mean the re
j pudiation of men. He said he loved and
i delighted to think of women helping
1 men as they have in the past, rather
! than making speeches from drvgoods
Speaking of southern women he said
they had inspired the men to battle,
Jiad ministered to them when wound
ed and had helped them to build up
'their shattered homes and fortunes,
1 Mr. Heflin said that the south had
jdone much to build up the United
States. The first blow for American
liberty was struck at Edenton. X. C..
tie said, and it was a southern man
. who wrote the Declaration of Inde
pendence. and another who led the
colonial troops in the revolution. He
added that there was no offense to
I the Stars and Stripes in praising Jef
| ferson Davis.
Edwin C. Dutton presided at the meet
j ing. and the invocation was delivered
! by Rev. F. G. Prettyman. the benedic
tion being pronounced by Rev. John T.
Huddle. The Confederate choir and the
Children of the Confederacy, dressed in
white and wearing tiny Confederate
tlags, sang a number of southern songs,
under the direction of W. H. Starnell,
; with Miss Bailey as accompanist. The
meeting was arranged by a committee
i consisting of Mrs. Wallace fftreater,
Mrs. Charles Fred. Mrs. C. R. Humph

Take a Walk
By WALT MASON
When you're feeling sore and fussy, prone to reel off language
cussy that would shame a Newgate hussy, take a walk; when I'm
mad I walk ten meters; all away my anger peters;
peace will come to him who teeters round a block.
When the world seems dark and dreary as a
prison in Sibery, and your heart is sad and weary,
take a walk. Fate throws bricks instead of
posies, and she hits you where your nose is?
Comfort comes to him who moseys round a
block. . If your wife has made a blunder and you
feel like raising thunder yoilr ancestral rooftree
under, take a walk; all the care your wife's en
during, all the ills she's daily curing you'll re
member while you're touring, round a block. If
the kids persist in roiling you by whooping and
turmoiling, till you feel your temper spoiling,
take a walk; you'll be far less grieved and graveled and your ire will
be unraveled by the time that you have traveled round a block.
Would you rant some, as a token that your manly heart is broken?
Leave the bitter word unspoken?take a walk; you'll be glad, so glad
you scooted leaving your old horn untooted, by the time you have
pirooted round a block.

REMINDS THE PARENTS
OF DUTY TO CHILDREN
Mr. Rudolph's View of Responsibil
ity in Considering the Mar
That parents should not wait for a
law requiring; a medical certificate to
K<> with a marriage license, but should
themselves make certain that the
young men who desire to wed their
daughters are in sound physical health
was the statement today of District
Commissioner Cuno H. Rudolph.
The District official stated thai while
he has considered the preparation of
a bill making the production of a medi
cal certificate compulsory before a mar
riage license can be granted, he has
not begun the preparation of it. and
possibly may not bring the matter to
the attention of his colleagues on the
board of Commissioners for several
Parents Held Responsible.
legislation of this character would
not be necessary if parents would do
their full part in ascertaining whether or
not their prospective sons-in-law are
free from diseases which would dis
qualify them for marriage," said Mr.
Rudolph. "It is more the duty of a
father t<> learn of the physical condi
tion of the young man who wishes to
marry his daughter than it is to find
out how capable he Is of supporting her.
I can't sa.v what features will be incor
porated in the marriage reform bill that
I have in mind, as the subject is one
that will require close study. It is not
my intention to take the matter up at
present, but it is possible a bill may be
ready for introduction at the next ses
sion of Congress."

problems of organization work. A ma- j
joritv of the dekgates will leave Charles
ton Saturday in time to reach Baltimore
for the convention of the Associated Ad

C5. Grosvenor Da we, chief of the edi
torial division of the chamber, will leave

the meeting of the board of trade, and
Sunday next he will be one of the thirty

WORST IN YEARS
Bureau Notes Conditions and
for Benefit of Industry.
The fishing season on the Potomac
river just closing has been the worst in
forty years, and its effects will he felt
from three to five yours hence, according
to a statement of the bureau of fish
eries. The conditions in the Potomac
are declared to bo typical of all major
streams. To prevent repetitions of such
conditions minor protective legislation is
needed, according to the bureau. While
the immediate cause of the failure of
the shad and herring fisheries this year i =
the diminished run of spawning fish into
Chesapeake bay from the sea, the enor
mous quantity of apparatus among which
a very limited catch had to be divided
also was responsible.
The trouble, according to the fisheries!
bureau. lies in the fact that the fish
coming into Chesapeake bay have to|
encounter such a maze of nets that they
are unable to reach their spawning
Instances of 111 Luck.
"At Ferry Landing," according to the
statement, "the largest seine on the
! river. 1,200 fathoms long, has discon
tinued operations in the middle of tin
season owing to the scarcity of fish. In
former years this celebrated fishing
shore, with a smaller seine, sometimes
yielded or more herring at a haul,
and up to ten or fifteen years ago took
probably to r'.o.ouo fish at a haul
on an average. Only a few years back,
from l.ooo to l.riixi shad were frequently
' taken at one set of the seine. This year
i the largest haul was .'!,?Hto herring and
lco shad, while many times only six to
i twenty shad were taken."
The effects of this diminished run.
| it is declared, will be seen when the re
duced progeny ot this season's supply
: comes back to spawn.
A verv unsuccessful season is reported
for the shad hatcheries maintained by
the government on the Potomac and
! Susquehanna rivers, and the operations
I of tiiese hatcheries, it is asserted, afford
a good criterion of the condition of the
fishery in the fresh waters, "because the
whole tield is covered and nearly every
ripe fish that is caught by the fishermen
? is stripped of its eggs by spawn-takers
sent out from the hatcheries. At the shad
liatcherv on the Potomac river the egg
collections amounted to 2!?,US8.?X*t, as
compared with 88.7"7.0u0 in lSHU."
( Protective legislation is needed for shad
j hatcheries, as. under present conditions.
! shad culture is deprived of one very ?-s
1 sential requirement, namely, an adequate
j supply or" ripe eggs for hatching purposes.
Excessive Fishing One Cause.
Excessive fishing in former years, the
bureau charges, is a remote cause of the1
present condition. The lack of protec
tion is also prevalent. For instance, fish
entering Chesapeake bay have to run
1 through such a maze of nets that the
wonder is expressed tiiat any are able to
! reach their soawning grounds and deposit
their eggs. The mouth of every import
! ant shad and herring stream in the
j Chesapeake basin, it is declared by the
! fisheries bureau, is literally ( logged j
with ni ts that are set lor the special I
! purpose of intercepting every fish, where-I
las a proper regard lor tin- future wel- \
) fare of the fisheries and for the needs of j
: the migrating schools would cause the!
j nets to be set so as to insure the escape |
I of a certain proportion of the spawning
j The bureau suggests that adequate pro.
i teetion would result in a large and tn
| creasing yield, and further says that a
! curtailment of the catch of approximately
' lo per cent in any given year might be
t sufficient to perpetuate the species and'
| result in increased production.
| Then, in conclusion, the bureau gives 1
I this warning: "To disregard a requirement
| so small, and to permit the continuan e
of an evil so serious, simply invites and
j encourages the destruction of a most
I valuable food supply."
