ENVOY OF ARGENTINA.
; Member of Senate to Make Return
Call of Courtesy.
Dr. Benito Villanueva. a distinguished '
member of the Argentine Benate, who
has been selected to visit the United
States to repay the visit of Senator Root,
at; Secretary of State, to Argentina, a
few years ago, probably will sal! from
Valparaiso, Chile, about December 1.1.
He had arranged to start for the United
States about a month ago, but was com
pelled to postpone has departure be
cause of important duties requiring his
attention in Argentina.
Maj. James A. Shipton, United States
military attache at Buenos Aires, will
accompany Dr. Villanueva on his trip.
Kxtensive plans will be made for the en
tertainment in this country of the South
Cost of Administering Land Laws.
The Senate today passed a resolution
calling upon the Secretary of the In
terior to submit a statement showing
the cost to the government of adminis
tering the national land laws during the
last Ave years.

RADICALS CAW POINT
FOR DIRECT PRIMARIES
Republican Conference De
clares for State-Wide Nom
inations in New York.
All Candidates to Stand on Equal
Footing?Party Emblems on
NEW YORK. December H.?The radicals
ruled the republican state conference >es
terday afternoon and forced the approval
of a direct state-wide primary law. State
Chairman William Barnes' (notion to
reaffirm the more conservative primary
plank in the last republican platform
was defeated by a vote of to 187.
The radicals, led by Henry L. Htim"
son, former Secretary of War, split with
Mr. Barnes and his followers over the
question of retaining party conventions.
The state chairman's proposition was that
the conference favor the direct nomina
tion of congressmen, members of the
state legislature and county municipal
officers, but keep the state convention
for the nomination of governor and the
other officers 011 the state ticket.
Delegates to this convention were to be
chosen directly by the voters, who should
have the. right also to express direct
pret'ereme for nominations for state 01
ticers if they so disered.
Stimson Carries His Point.
This did not suit Mr. Stimson and his
friends, and after a long debate they car
ried a small majority of the conferees
with them. The resolution adopted de
clared that all candidates should stand on
an equal footing. It opposed the use of
party emblems on the general election
ballot and the factional column on the
primary ballot. At the same time. * ex
pressed belief in party organization and
reiterated the doctrine of torm.ert]1^
Hughes that the direct primary should be
an adjunct to and a check upon rather
than a substitute for the deliberation and
conference of the party's representatives.
The conference was called b> the state
committee to recommend legislation to
the republican members of the state as
sembly, which was returned to republican
control in the last election. Nearly every
republican of importance in the state was
present United States senator Root
presided, and Mr. Stimson, former Attor
ney General George W. Wickersham, Job
E. Hedges, defeated candidate for gov
ernor at the last state election, and ?eth
Low, former mayor of New \ork, took
part in the discussions. Mr. VVickeisliam
sided with Chairman Barnes in the pri
mary reform debate.
Some of the Recommendations.
Until the primaries question was
reached the meeting worked rapidly and
harmoniously. It recommended the adop
tion of a vigorous compulsory working
men's compensation law-, reform of the
rules of the assembly and the amend
ment of the state constitution to take
all state offices, except those of gov
ernor and lieutenant governor, out of
the elective list and empower the gov
ernor to till them by appointment. Rec
ommendation was made also for reform
ing the state budget and placing the ad
ministration of the fiscal affairs of the
state upon a "scientific, stable basis.
Mr. Barnes argued that the meeting
should not adjourn without definite ac
tion. He called attention to the example
of Massachusetts, where the republican
candidate for governor at the last elec
tion refused to accept the platform adopt
ed by the state platform convention. He
attributed to the defeat of the party in
Massachusetts to this disagreement.
Seth Low and Mr. Stimson agreed with
Messrs. Wadhams and Hinman in the
declared purpose not to temporize, Mr
Stimson said: "The people want a right
to put an extra check on the state con
vention. The continual demands of
earnest, permanent republicans show that
they are not satisfied.
Changes in Assembly Rules.
Changes recommended in the assembly
rules provided that the power of the
rules committee should be limited so that
its members no longer should be able to
dictate legislation in the closing days.
They called for adequate publicity of
committee hearings, votes and action
forbade voting by proxy, and sought to
permit the presentation of minority re
ports on proposed legislation.
A motion to include judges of the court
of appeals among the officers to be ap
pointed by the governor was defeated
Mr. Barnes opposed the appointment
of Judges. ,
"The republican party, he declared, *s
committed to maintain the judiciary as
an independent part of our government.
William A. Prendergast, controller of
New York city, who yesterday announced
his withdrawal from the progressive
party, attended the meeting, but took no
part in the deliberations.
Reference to the progressives who had
left the partv was made by Mr. Hedges,
who said: "I^efs tell them to come on
back and stop their noueense, and let's
Street Car Spitting.
To th>* Editor of The Star:
I cannot let the occasion pass without
expressing my personal thanks for the
editorial in the issue of December 4,
headed "Street Car Spitting." It is a
singular fact that tuberculosis conven

we had one with us only a few weeks ago
?but never a word in protest of this in

to know of vigorous steps taken against

In two instances, within one hour, on
different car lines, I called the attention
of conductors to passengers spitting on
car floors and asked them what instruc
tions they had as to dealing with such
cases. They refused to talk and got busy
turning the door cranks. In an interview
the same day with the superintendent of
the Capital Traction line, that gentleman
expressed considerable indignation that
the conductors failed to call officers
and make arrests, remarking: "It is so
difficult to obtain a witness in such
cases." "Why," I retorted, "I offered my
name and services fo^'tiiat very purpose, j
and your conductor would not even listen
to me" Moreover, the book of instruc
tions furnished to conductors has riot one
line in it about arresting an "expecto

I called the conductor to put him or his

DESTROY TWO BUILDINGS
Continue Campaign of Revenge
for Arrest of Mrs. Emme
LONDON. December f>.?The campaign
of revenge for the arrest of Mrs. Em
tneline Pankhurst was continued by the
militant suffragettes today. They had
marked for destruction various exhibi
tion buildings and grandstands on the
race tracks in Lancashire, where Pre
mier Asquith is spending the week end
and delivering a series of political
speeches. Two of the items on the
militant program were successfully
carried out. "Arson squads" burned
down exhibition buildings at Liverpool
and Manchester. Their third attempt,
however, was unsuccessful, the suf
fragettes being frightened away by the
approach of a policeman when they
were preparing to set fire to the grand
stand on Aintree race course.
Forcible Feeding Protested.
At a large meeting of Anglican
clergymen, presided over by the Bishop
of Kensington, held in Queen's Hall
last night, a resolution was adopted
protesting against forcible feeding.
Six hundred bishops and clergymen sent
letters expressing sympathy with the
movement, but many of them, includ
ing the Bishop of London, at the same
time denounced militancy by women
attempting to obtain suffrage. The
reading of the Bishop of London's let
ter and remarks by many speakers to
the same effect led to serious interrup
tions on the part of a .large body of
militant suffragettes who were present.

This action was approved last night at

Complaint was made by W. H. Barn

provide sewers for liis house. He de
clared that he was the only one in his
section who lacked these. He went to the
sewer department, he declared, and
asked that the sewer mains be laid in
front of his house, and was told that the
mains could not be laid because the street
had not been graded. He then went to
the surface department and asked that
the street be graded and was told there
was no money to improve the street.
"1 then complained to the health depart

declared the conditions were very in

health department said that it was im
