McAdoo, Secretary of the Treasury, They spent part of it in lunching and at tea, and the morning was devoted to selecting many of the frocks and hats of Miss Wil| son's trousseau. j A shop on oth avenue was cnosen oy ' Miss Wilson, and shortly after 10 she arrived there with her aunt, Mrs. James Wilson of Philadelphia, with whom she is staying. ' Secretary McAdoo was waiting for his ' fiancee at the shop, and the three spent * more than two hours in one of the private ' showrooms on the second floor, during ' which Miss Wilson selected ten of her ' J frocks, including- the wedding gown. No member of the firm would give the j details of what Miss Wilson selected, but the shopping tour was so successful j ! that she, like all brides-to-be, fairly bubbled over to her girl friends during the afternoon as she told of the wonderful things she had chosen. Praises Miss Wilson's Taste. , One of the women who was fortunate enogh to learn the details of the wedding shopping said; "The selections are perfectly beautiful and nave been chosen with the greatest taste and dis- 1 crimination, for, you know. Eleanor Wilson is an artist. Her favorite colors are all sorts of blue shades and rc>3e en I deep pinks. She told me of a wonderful dinner frock she selected of rose pink, to bo trimmed in lovely silver lace and tulle. "Her going-away gown is a smart imported model of blue, which is made in the very newest "French mode," she continued. "Miss Eleanor's clothes will be much smarter and more expensive than those which Mrs. Sayre selected for her trousseau, because Eleanor is more fond I of dress than Jessie ever was." Miss Wilson has not decided on every detail of her wedding gown, as she will , wait until next week or until her mother is well enough to have a say in tne matter. But Miss Wilson, so her friends said, is determined on very beautiful old lace and white satin with long train and tulle veil. Selected Ten Garments. Miss Wilson was shown dozens of the smartest new gowns and outing clothes, but out of the great array of wonderful things she chose but ten garments. These include two dinner gowns, two for evenings, the going-away gown, a fancy tai lor suit, and a steamer coat of very ultra smart bell shape. After seeding her gowns. Miss Wilson went over to the Broadway shopping: district, where she bought a steamer trunk, which she had shipped to Washington. Mrs. Wilson talked with a reporter for a few minutes early last evening, when waiting for Miss' Wilson to dress for dinner. "While Eleanor is fond of 'fuss and feathers/ her wedding outfit will be simple," said the aunt. "None of the more exaggerated styles will be included in her wardrobe, and everything will be made right here in this country. Besides engagements for breakfast and luncheon. Miss Wilson has twelve fittings on for tomorrow. She will leave for Washington on an early afternoon train." Miss Wilson and Secretary McAdoo were dinner guests of Col. and Mrs. E. M. House, at the Ritz Hotel, last evening, and later went to the theater. LONDON SUFFRAGETTES CREATE PANDEMONIUM Invade Borough Council and Attack Men With Flour and Chemicals. DONDON, March 28.?An extraordinary suffragette disturbance occurred Thursday at a meeting of the Poplar borough council, which had voted adversely to letting out council halls for suffragette meetings. With shouts of "cowards." and other offensive epithets, a crowd of women Invaded that section of the hall reserved for the councilors, exploding bombs containing evil-smelling chemicals, and flinging bags of flour and stones at the members. The councilors soon were struggling with the infuriated women, many of whom were armed with bludgeons and bottles. Shrieks and shouts, the smashing of glass and the splintering of chairs completed one of the worst scenes of pandemonium In the history of the suffragette movement. The police were sent for. but for some reason refrained from interference. The mayor retained the chair in a vain endeavor to resume the council proceedings. hut finally the council beat a retreat. leaving the women in possession of the hall, with a few socialist members of the council, who remained to hear speeches delivered by Miss Zelie Emerson of Jackson. Mich., and others. While Miss Emerson was sneaking the council ventured to return to the chamber. It then carried a resolution excluding the public from the chamber for three months. George L-ansbury, a member of the council, and a strong supporter of the militant movement, fiercely protested against this proceding as irregular, and threw the town clerk's books and papers to the floor, amid cheers from the suffragists. The council meeting then adjourned. PICKED BY STORY FORCES. Candidates for Offices in D. A. R. Are Selected. ? " Mrs. P. F. Greenawalt. repent of Ruth .

INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENTS AND COMPENSATION LAW Subject Discussed in Report of Federal Bureau of Labor?Result of Investigation. Workmen's compensation, laws are rapidly superseding: employers' liability laws as a method of dealing with the results of Industrial accidents. according to the federal bureau of labor In a report today on Its Investigations Into the subject both In the United States and foreign countries. The report reviews in detail thje history of such legislation and presents the actual results to beneficiaries una + le?so T ohnurc JC1 icuci <n anu a IQ.VC ta.no. xi. onuoo that twenty-three states have enacted workmen's compensation laws and that these laws have thus far been declared constitutional by the courts of last resort in Massachusetts. New Jersey, 3hio, Washington and Wisconsin. Invalid in Montana. The law was declared invalid, however, in Montana because it permitted double liability, and in New York because it was held to be in conflict with the state constitution. In New York, however, a new law was passed which avoided unconstitutionality. The report says it is worthy of note that no country has ever returned to the liability system after having enacted a compensation law; Movement Likely to Continue. "While some desire is expressed in certain quarters to delay action until a uniform measure can be agreed upon," the report conclude?, "it is apparent to the most casual observer that the rapid movement of the past five years is likely to continue Its progress until the rule of proved negligence of the employer and the assumption by the employe of all risks not arising therefrom is superseded by the more humane and equitable doptrine of making the industry provide for the human no less than the mechanical breakage and wear and tear."
