National Gallery Now Holds
Works of Well Known
DIRECT FROM GOTHAM
Examples of Expression of All Cults
Displayed?Open to Public
An exhibition of portraits l>y the
members of the National Association of
Portrait Painters opened with a pri
vate view and reception today in the
National Gallery of Art at tlie New Na
tional Museum. Last season this same
group of well known artists was rep
resented in the National Gallery by a
score or more of interesting canvases.
This year the collection comes direct
from galleries in New York, where it
lias been on view fur several wee^s.
The names of the artists contr.buting
arc all known to art lovers of this city,
and form essentially the same group
as the exhibition in 11*14. It is greatly
legretted among art lovers that John
W. Alexander is not represented, like
wise Adolph Boric of Philadelphia, not
to speak of John S. Sargent. There
are. however, among the exhibitors one
or two members of the association
v hrch did not appear in last season's
All Cults Represented.
The canvases in general present a
dignified appearance and have been
hung with the usual care and taste. It
is a most catholic exhibition, compris
ing examples of artistic expression for
all cults, from those admiring "the offi
cial portrait" to those "with modern
tendencies"?but portraits all.
Frank W. Benson is to be seen at his
best in his likeness of Philip Little, a
beautiful little canvas, complete and
sincere. Miss Cecilia Beaux is repre
sented by a portrait of A. Piatt An
drew. former assistant secretary of
the Treasury. It is an excellent like
ness. which was shown, however, in an
exhibition of her paintings held three
vears ago in the Corcoran Gallery.
William M. Chase sends two canvases,
the one entitled "Miss N." was with
this group in New York, the "Portrait
of William Grosvenor" being an addi
tion for Washington's benefit.
Irving R. Wiles shows a likeness of
his beautiful daughter, whom he has
painted so often. This canvas shows
the young lady, also an artist, by the
way, in a leopard skin coat. It is
graceful and charming.
Portrait of Singer's Wife.
Brenetta Herrman Crawford shows a
full length standing portrait of Mrs.
Ricardo Martin, the wife of the tenor
of the Metropolitan Opera. It is a
charming harmony of broken color,
subdued in tone, refined and dignified.
Robert Henri's canvas does not suggest
what most persons term a portrait, but
It is a bit of joyously beautiful color, i
handled as Henri does.
George Bellows and George Luke,
bracketed so often on account of their
"modernist" tendencies, are quite true
to their creeds, the former in his por
trait of Willard Straight and the latter
in his Morgan Robertson.
Howard Gardner Cushing sends a
decorative arrangement. The back
ground is beautiful and the composi
tion unusual and compelling.
William Cotton's portrait of Miss Do
rothy King is lovely in color and the
gown and chair are beautifully painted.
Eugene Speicher's work is seen for
the first time with this group and his
portrait of a young woman is a \-alua
The secretary of the association. Earl
Stetson Crawford, is represented by
two canvases, both of young women.

Mr. Harkness was born in this city

The Harkness family came to Wash

seat of government here.
Incident in Family History.
Tn writing a history of the family,
only shortly before his death, Mr.
Harkness relates the circumstances of
ill health which forced his father to
give up indoor employment and take
up the occupation of "penny* post."
This was during the early fifties, and
for many years Thomas Harkness de
livered letters in Washington, as
stated, receiving 2 cents per letter and
finding it to be quite profitable. At
the. beginning of the civil war the let
ter delivery fee was reduced to 1 cent.

FIVE DOLLARS THE LIMIT

Controller's Ruling on Provision for
Compensation of Enlisted Men
in Coast Guard.
Enlisted men in the coast guard who

The controller of the Treasury, in in
terpreting the provision of $1 per
month additional pay for each term
of enlistment, cites the fact that
the coast guard act provides for this
extra compensation up to the fifth en

the auditor for the Treasury Depart

who approved pay rolls providing for |l

that can be given to the provision as
worded is that $5 is the maximum

No Communication "With England
for Entire Week, First Time
in Thirty Years.
NEW YORK, March 6.?After the de
parture today of the steamships New
York and Cameronia for Liverpool the
only opportunity to send letters to
Great Britain during the coming week
will be by the steamship Northland,
which will leave Portland, Me., Satur
day, March 13, for Liverpool. There
will be no mail for England next week,
either from New York, Boston or Phil
adelphia, and the first vessel listed to
sail from New York for England is
the Arabic, March 17.
This is the lirst time in more than
thirty years, steamship men said to
day, in which there has been a lack of
ocean liners going to Great Britain or
since the date when steam vessels
with a regular schedule succeeded the
old sailing clippers.
Cause of Shortage.
Strikes in English ports, the conges,
tion of freight in the Mersey and the
Thames, and the extraordinary de
mands made by the admiralty upon the
British transatlantic lines for trans
ports have caused the situation, it was
stated. The brunt of the shortage has
fallen on New York.
Six steamships sail next week for the
Mediterranean, France and Holland.
