The Next House. Those engaged at this early day in or ganizing the next House may enjoy the ^mplojment. but ti.?y are taking risks Pirst elect your majority. Only this much now is certain: a republican majority will "ifan ;? repub ican Speaker and a repub lican floor leader, and a democratic ma- [ iorrtv a democratic successor to Mr. ' f'lark and a democratic successor to Mr. j Underwood. No guess on the republican side worthy I of attention will overlook Mr. Mann tor J Speaker, and Mr. Cannon fur chairman j of ways and means or chairman of ap propriations. Tn years past Mr. < ann??n! presided over the latter committee. Both men will be candidates lor the House this year, and will be certain tc reach goal | ?f there is a revival of republicanism in the country. On the democratic side there is con fusion. Some nun then predict Mr. Clark's defeat for a third term as Speaker as the result of his course on the tolls question. It would not do, they assert, to put a democrat in the Speaker's chair oat of harmony with the President. Ma terial must be made for the presidential campaign, and the President and the Speaker should be in cordial accord. As for a new floor leader, there will be a competent bunch to choose from. Mr. Kitchin of North Carolina, Mr. Sherley of Kentucky. Mr. Adamson of Georgia, Mr. Clayton of Alabama and Mr. Henry of Texas are certain of re-election, and all are able and experienced legislators. I With the exception of Mr. Kitc hin. all are supporting the President in his tight for the repeal of the tolls exemption law. Although they have conjured with his name in many things, it seems hardly possible that the President would permit his friends to use it to the detriment of Mr. Clark and Mr. Kitchin in organizing the next House if the democrats control it. That would raise a stir not only there, but throughout the country. Criticism of the interference of the executive with Congress is already great, and such an act as that would increase it many fold. If the maneuver won, the party would suffer. If it was defeated, the President would lose prestige. It is reasonably certain that the demo crats, even if they win in November, will have a majority materially smaller than their present majority. The present ma jority was a "scratch"; and "scratches," like lightning strokes, are eccentric. They never choose the same target twice run ning. A small majority, therefore, will call for all the harmony possible in the winter and spring of 1916; and the turning down of such men as Clark and Kitchin as a punishment for their support of the Bal timore platform would be for the demo cratic party a fooiish and disastrous per formance. Thieves and Vacant Honses. Depredations ir. and against vacant buildings appear to be more general than anybody not a sufferer from losses of this kind might suppose. However, it is a common observation that if a house is without tenants its windows will not long remain unbroken and there will be a more serious destruction of property than the breakage of windows. It is charged that heavy loss is suffered in the District from vandalism against unoccupied property. In con nection with the clean-up and city beautiful campaign a woman owner of untenanted property wrote a let ter to The Star complaining of in jury to that property by gangs of rowdies, and expressing the belief that there was insufficient interest on the part of the police in this character of -obbery and malicious mischief. The letter was published and soon thereafter many letters came from other owners of vacant houses, telling the same tales of hardship. Unoccupied property is en titled to police protection. Its owners pay taxes on it and presumably lose enough money on it without having it stripped of doors, windows, flooring, fencing and of lighting and plumbing fixtures The police have their time nearly or quite filled up with the per formance of their manifold duties, but the vacant house matter is one that calls loudly for consideration. The Russian minister of finance urges economy in other directions so as to avoid running short of money for mil itary purposes. It is evident that the czar is not to be encouraged in any aspirations to # win the Nobel peace Vfc prize. Tt should not be surprising to South Carolina if the policy of its governor toward convicts invites the immigra tion of a certain element of undesira ble citizenship. In the present discussion Col. Goethals Is no longer being heard from. He would be justified in feeling content to rest on his undisputed laurels as an engineer. A few more days will see the weather prophets safely down beyond the snow line. Lawns. At various times in connection with the newspaper reports of the meetings of cit- I izens' associations the subject of well kept lawns and attractive flower beds has i been touc hed on and in a number of! instances citizens' associations have j agreed to continue the practice previously found effective of giving awards for ( lawns and flower growths of distinguish- I ed merit. Many of the urban and subur- j ban neighborhoods of the District arc the handsomer, happier and more val- I uabi? because of the care given to the land in front or at the rear or on the tides of the home. A well kept grass plot or a carefully tended flower garden tells all the world which passes that way that somebody lives there, that there is home life there and that order and content f?1gn within. In moat cues the condition of the yard u or "gTounds" can be and will be taken as an index of the housekeeping system that is followed inside. The garden or the lawn tended with care give? a proper 1 touch to the home and applied to con tiguous homes makes the neighborhood better. The climate of Washington is en couraging to fine gardens and everybody who lives in a house lias time enough to care for one. The Iawnmower. the rake and the spade are fine implements of physical culture. The security of private lawns and flow er beds is greater than it ever was. Pub- j lie opinion has been so improved and educated in this matter that complaints | of marauding are rare, whereas not many vears ago they were frequent. This is I shown by reference to an editorial in The j Star May i'7, 1 ST??. which in part fol lows: "Ther^ is probably no place in the j country where more is done by its in ? habitants to beautify their homes by the cultivation of flowers, shrubbery, etc.. than by the citizens of Washington. Nor is there a place where such efforts are more successful considering the dis couragements and drawbacks under which they are made. We refer mon especially to the pulling of flowers, the destruction of shrubbery and the theft of rare plants from private grounds. So gr?-at has this abuse grown in som*' parts of tIs? city that not a few of those who have Im eji so frequently raided are now hesitating between giving up the p'easant duty of ornamenting their grounds and lying in wait for the marauders with loaded shotguns. The most curious thing f" these sufferers is the fact that the po ? ic" apparently nevvr see any of til des]-oiling and that in spit-> of the strin gent law on the subject no arrests are made or at least no punishment is in flicted." Economy and Appropriations. The appeal of i hairman Fitzgerald to his democratic brethren in the House yes terday was based upon two propositions: ? 1> K'-on-uny is a good and necessary thing in itself, and (2) it was promised by the democratic party in the Baltimore platform. This is not a favorable time for pressing proposition number two. Why should the economy plank of the Baltimore platform be singled out for strict observance when other planks have gone, or are going, by the board'.' The Baltimore plat form. it seems now agreed, was con structed to get in on. and having served that purpose is being taken apart and the pieces trundled out of the way. Sec ond-hand lumber for sale. Proposition number one presents an old. old difficulty. As applied to the gov ernment's affairs, what is economy? What is the duty of the party in power at this time? Assuming that the republicans when holding the purse strings were too liberal, and even extravagant, what grip should the democrats take on those strings? Many democratic representatives who 011 the stpmp two years ago denounced the size of republican supply bills have discovered since, if they did not know it then, that they were talking through their hats. Confronted with the duty of voting supp'ies themselves, they appre ciate the size of t'nele Sam's establish ment. and the heavy obligations that rest on their own shoulders. They can see no economy in skimping the old gen tleman. and. putting the matter on a purely saltish plane, no votes for them selves next November in such a course. Hence they are responding liberally to what they conceive the country's needs to be. not neglecting to consider the lo cal interests in passing. The hands of the clock cannot be turned back. The country's growth must be considered. Knickerbockers do not fit Uncle Sam now. He is full size, of fine proportions, and must dress in stye. The tailor who should serve him inade quately, either as to cut or cloth, would not get a second order for a suit of clothes. Two things, then, should govern the present appropriations: (1) the country's real requirements?which are large?and (2), what is promised for the near fu ture in the extraordinary progress of the near past. Not a cent for waste, but as many dollars as are called for to make the mare go. Mr. Fitzgerald has in view, and frank *y mentions a task that will devolve on him as chairman of the appropriations committee when the "demned sum to- J tal" has to be explained to the country. < It will not be easy, but he will accomplish it. It is all in the day's work; and he is an able man. Others, and some with less ability, have tackled the same task, and acquitted themselves, if not en tirely to their personal comfort?which was a secondary consideration?to the satisfaction of their party?which was the main point. Eve of Sanitary Crusade. F inal preparations for the annual sp-ing clean-up in the District of Colum bia ar?- being made. The light against dirt wil! begin next Monday. The public has been worked up to a good pitch of enthusiasm for participation In this sani tary crusade. The response from the citizens' associations of the District and the town societies in Washington's suburbs outside of the District has been nearly unanimous. The school children have been interested in the clean-up idea and in this way the enthusiasm has been carried into many homes where per haps it would not otherwise find a greet ing. The Boy Scouts have been enlisted, and it is announced that tomorrow many ministers will, from their pulpits, dis course on the virtue of cleanliness and the importance of a clean city to the public health: Altogether the spring cleaning between next Monday and next Saturday will be a great stroke in the anti-fly campaign, and with the clean-up idea kept prominently in the public mind there will bo a marked improvement in the health conditions of the capital. It is an unfortunate state of mind that leads to the assumption that any argu mentative opposition is necessarily prompted by the corrupt use of money. According to the Mexican generals the fate of Torreon is merely a difference of opinion. Huerta shows certain inclination to make it more or less of an ad writers' battle. Old Home Week. Though the sap is not yet stirring freely I in tlie trees a number of cities?that is, a number of newspapers in several cities? 1 are aln adv discussing plans for old-home week, or home-coming week. This is a happy and enterprising custom which was taken up by a few cities not many years ago, and the Idea was such a catching and appealing one that the custom has been rapidly extended The plan usually stirs up enthusiasm in a city, puts the citizens to thinking of something else than this workaday world, brings back many sons and daughters to the city who have strayed away or gone away with pre meditation, and promotes a high state of pleasure all around. There is also a practical side which is an :irsument that convinces many cities. Utlca, N. y., (8 one of the places already making plans for an old-home week in August, and the Utlca Press, discussing the business fea ture of the case, says: "If the utilitarian side of it is looked at for a moment the suggestion is Inevitable that the butcher and baker and the grocer will also have to make special preparations and that business will be doubled for that particular week and per- - haps for days beforehand and afterward. I This is true of every business venture in j the city. The trolley ears will transport thousands more than usual. The depart ment stores and the furnishing houses will have an accelerated trade to make j ready for and everybody will share in the greater activity which will be induced." Thus the old home week subserves sentiment and business. Analytical criticism has no place in the discussion of the works of that gentle poet. Cy Warm an. He wrote from his heart, and the hearts of the peopie answered him. No doubt Mr. I'nderwood is now shar ing the confidence that used to be ex pressed by some eminent republicans in the wisdom of the plain people. Opinions from Mr. Carnegie to the ef fect that senators need prayer nlay be seized upon as :i means of further pro longing the discussion. White Sulphur Springs will soon be per mitted to feej as important as Pass Chris tian felt some little time ago. SHOOTING STARS. BY PHILANDKP. JOHNSON. Continuous Problem. "We sent Gladys Ann to cooking school to get her mind off her piano playing,' said Mr. Cumrox. "Did the plan succeed? ' "Yes. Now we're trying to persuade her to study political economy so as to get her mind off the cooking." Futile Thrift. The b, ? exclaimed, "How can 1 beat The ganu which they contrive? When I pil?- up a store so sweet, Somebody taps the hive!" The Good Old Clothes. "Surely you don't want me to wear clothes that are out of style!" she pro- > tested. "Yes. I do." replied the reckless man. j "As a matter of decorum. I wish you'd ! put on the clothes you wore five years ! ago!" Dangers of Power. "So you managed to get that man his appointment?" "Yes." replied the statesman. "That was lucky." "I don't know whether it was or not. Of course, he's my friend as long as he holds the position. But two or three dozen men who would have liked the place are liable to be my enemies for ever." Useful on Occasion. "You mean to say Crimson Gulch has an anti-gambling law"' "Yes," replied Three-Finger Sam. "We had to have some way of breaking up the game when a tenderfoot comes along and gets to winning all the money." A Fresh Start. The May day smiles not far away And flowers blossom day by day. A gentle promise tills the air And Hope dispels the mists of care. Whate'er the disappointments drear That filled us with resentful fear, Whate'er the injuries received, Whate'er the burdens unrelieved. When Mayday, lightly drawing near, Is heralded by songs of cheer, The troubles of each mortal's lot Fade and are presently forgot, As each exultantly exclaims While reading o'er the players' names, With faith all joyously secure, "We'll win the pennant this year, sure!' Chicago's Woman Voters. From the Chicago Tribune. The whole country undoubtedly will scan the election data of yesterday to see how the women voted. The new voters can well undergo the inspection. They have made a most encouraging begin ning, voting with intelligent discrimina tion on the "little ballot" propositions and saving the day for several of the.best candidates presented. They voted in slightly larger percentage of their regis tration than the men. in spite of the fact that they had not the advantage of tried organization to "get out the vote" as the men of the parties had. And voting, they voted well. The Busy Time. From the St. Joseph Gazette. The year's growing time is here. It seems uncertain, hesitant, whimsical. But its real activities art- going on all about us. and we realize that only on tho sur face is there seeming delay. Trees are daily, hourly, preparing to don their spring costumes. The earth is preening i herself in a rapidly shaping garb of green, i Even the decorations of this dress are be- I ing swiftly completed. The fields are scenes of equally large and important un dertakings of nature. Nowhere is there actual waiting. It is nature's growing time. Every minute of this season has Its overflow ing duties. Not one is being neg lected. More Money for School Teachers. From the Philadelphia Inquirer. No objection will be raised any where to the action of the committee of the board of education in raising the salaries to woman teachers and placing them on an equality with those of the men. For many years we have had a devoted band of men and women doing the most important work in the city and laboring for meager salaries. The Spaniards. i From the Springfield Republican. Expulsion of the Spaniards would be a worse blow to Mexico than expulsion of the Moors was to Spain. Their role of conquerors over, the Spaniards have won an excellent reputation as sober business men: in Porto Rico Americans have had since the occupation abundant opportunity to appreciate their merits. The National Money Center. From the Boston Transcript. Washington quickly recovered from the disappointment over her failure to get a reserve bank, thero being a building at 15th street and Pennsyl vania avenue that takes all the sting out of the sore spot. Enterprise. From the Day too News. Enterprise is ,not exclusively an Amer ican quality. A Brussels real estate firm has scandalized Europe by proposing to plat the battlefield of Waterloo as a sub urban subdivision. Spring Tonic. From the Sioux City Tribune. With the trees budding and the grass growing greener fans begin to wait impatiently for the umpire's stentorian announcement: "Batteries for today's game." Spring tonics won't make the blood run like that gladsome noise. President Eclipsed. From the Boston Transcript. President Wilson has just a few days more before he must yield the spotlight to Walter Johnson. Know How to Vote. From the Chicago News. Chicago women showed that they know as well what to do with the ballot as do the men. TOloo5war6 New ?ork=WAS05NOT?N==Panis. otbrop Announcing the Arrival of BED CLOTHING Suitable for Summer Use.

The $20.00 Innovation is shown in three sizes; Steamer, Demi-Steamer and Regular. The wisdom of making thc<e Trunks in three >ize> is readily apparent, and the practicality a;i?I convenience are being more an more appreciated by travelers every day. Makers of innovation Trunks are, however, the only ones that have realized the ad vantage of the three size-. They are as follows: "Innovation" are the original Wardrobe Trunks, the first to be made, and they are the first and best in the opinion of all discrim inating travelers. Strong, dura ble and practical in construction, they afford the utmost protection to their contents and superior convenience and accommodation to their owners. Regular-size Wardrobe Trunks hold 10 suits and are often larger than is wanted, yet fill the exact needs of many; the Steamer-size Innovation is just the opposite, being too small for ;nany uses, but is the ideal Steamer Trunk, and the best of its kind. For those requiring either of these styles there is nothing better. N:ow the demi-size is a convenient model between the two, and has become very popular. It will hold 6 suits, and all the dress accessories in proportion, as will the two other models All three of the famous "Innovation" Trunks are priced at $20.00, and all three fitted with the won derfully convenient and scientific adjustable and removable arms for hanging garments in their natural position, and thus keeping them ready for wear immediately upon taking from the trunk?no pressing is required more than actual wear demands. "Innovation" Trunks are the only Trunks that any model can be used by both men and women; other Wardrobe Trunks are built in distinct models for men's and women's use. These, every model can be used by both sexes, so that economy is a strong feature. Second floor, G st. "Liberty" Summer Fabrics of Exquisite Texture.
