In his letter Mr. Tinman reminds the House committee that Mr. Mac farland was at one time chairman of the board of Commissioners of the District.

Mr. Noyes in his letter to Repre sentative Fess said that since Mr. Macfarland’s portrait has already been presented to the District and hangs In the boardroom of the Dis trict building, it is the desire of the committee that this second memorial shall be out of doors, and the most appropriate place upon which to lo cate has seemed to be a triangle adjacent to Feck Memorial Chapel, where for nearly thirty years Mr. Macfarland served as superintendent of the Sunday school. The memorial is to be an artistic drinking fountain with medallion por trait and inscription on the back wall. Lieut. Col C. q.

That fund has now been com pleted. and it is proposed to place in a public space a drinking fountain commemorative of his high character and contributions to the advancement of the community. The resolution was passed by the Senate on Satur day, February 24. Commissioner Ten tear*. Mr. .Macfarland served as Commis sioner of the District during ten of the most progressive years in Wash ington’s history, 1900 to 1910, the re port said. "He made sacrifices to the end of giving efficient service in this capacity. He devoted himself unsparingly to his duty and contributed richly to the de velopment of the capital, of which he was a resident from the age of six years. After his retirement from the District's service he engaged in the practice of law in Washington, and was so occupied at the time of his death. ’’Memorial services were held here, participated in by eminent Washing tonians of varying activity', who paid high tribute to Mr. Macfarland’s char acter and ability. Jt was at first thought that the physical memorial to him should lake such form as to he properly placed in the District building, the scene of his official duty. His portrait, however, was presented to the District government by his widow and was hung with ceremonies of tribute in the boardroom October 24. 1922. On that occasion addresses were made which testified to the ap preciation of Mr. Macfarland by citi zens of Washington and officials. ’• U.S. CONSULATE TO STAY "CLOSED Refusal of Britain to Exonerate American Officials Is * Cause. The American consulate at New c*»tle-on-Tyne will not be reopened and disposition of the lease of the consular premises is to be made, the British government w as informed yes terday by Ambassador Harvey in London. This action by the United States government is regarded as closing the controversy which has existed between the two nations since last July, when the exequaturs of Consul Slater and Vice Consul Brooks were cancelled by Great Britain on the ground that these two officials had discriminated against British vessels. The note, handed to Lord Curon. British minister, was in reply to a communication from Lord Curzon of December 27. The American govern ment had maintained .that the two officials should be publicly exonerated by the British government of the charges that they were attempting to divert passengers from British to American ships, but no such public acquittal has been issued. The note of yesterday reiterated that a thor ough investigation had shown con clusively that The charges preferred cannot be substantiated.” The British government had sug gested that the United States and CHURCH ANNOUNCEMENTS.

OTTAWA, Match I.—“ Fear that Canadian independence would tend to swing the orbit of the Dominion out of th<- British empire and into that of another country.” was ex pressed by former Premier Meighen. leader of the opposition in the house of commons, in a speech last night at the annual dinner commemo rating the heroic stand of the Prin cess Pats at St. Eloi.

He was quick at repartee and un usually nimble in debate, with the re sult fliat few questions were hurled at him during his speeches, which always were extemporaneous. One of Mr. Cookran’s biggest ef forts came during the recent flurry in the House aroused by Representa tive Upshaw’s demand that public officials observe the Utter of the dry laws. At that time. In on impas sioned address of an hour, he told the House that the Volstead act never could be enforced. In his last speech, delivered in the House last night, against the farm credits bill. Mr. Cockran spoke with all his usual fire and dash. He gave the House a word-picture of attempts he said had been made for several hundred years to improve conditions by similar methods, and declared they always had proved disastrous. "Any law which endeavors to help one class of people at the expense of the other classes." he shouted, "leads to ruin." All economic laws, he said, would be violated by application of the bill, add ing that the farmer needed only self reliance, economy and thrift. "Vou want to lend him, by the terms of this bill." be said, "more than his securities are worth. That is bad bank ing and the money is going to come out of the pockets of the taxpayers.” Mr. Cockran was pessimistic in his remarks about world conditions. "Dark clouds." he said, "are hovering every where.” News of Mr. Cockran’* sudden re moval from the activities of Congress east a shadow on the House as it re assembled today to resume its con sideration of the credit measure. "I am shocked almost beyond ex pression." said Representative Gar rett of Tennessee, the democratic leader. "Mr. Cockran has been not only a nationally known, but an in ternationally' known character for more than thirty years. He was one of the foremost orators of all the cen t uries." “I’ttde Joe" Grieved. "Uncle .loe” Cannon said Mr Cock run was the "most graceful and force ful speaker” who had come to Con gress in many years. Representative Mondell of Wyom ing. the republican floor leader, de clared his death meant the passing of the "greatest orator of his time." “He was a man of splendid tal ents ami high character," said the republican leader. “His speeches brought memories of the school of Burke and Pitt. In England, and of our "Webster and Clay." Another who expressed pain and regret was Representative Volstead, republican. Minnesota: creator of the law that bears his name. ‘T had a real respect for Mr. • ’ockran’s ability.” he said. "We die! not agree on some things, hut we w ere good friends." The House foreign affairs com mittee adjourned out of respect for his memory, and resolutions of regret were adopted. It was said at Air. Cockran’s home that he hail complained of a headache about 1 o’clock this morning and shortly afterward had become uncon scious. He never afterward regained • onsciousness. His physician said a brain hemorrhage preceded death. Funeral arrangements had not been completed this afternoon. A state ment issued by his secretary said: "Mr. Cockran had been feeling very well and working very hard. He made a speech In the House and in tie evening, it being his birthday, a few friends came in in formal ly to dinner. He seemed in the best of health and spirits. He had been talk ing with Mrs. Cockran for about half an hour after the guests had gone, when, about 1 am. he suddenly said he had a terrible headache and soon after that became unconscious. Dr. Hardin immediately was summoned and the last rites of the Catholic Church were administered. Mrs. Cockran was at his bedside until he died” EXPECT $400,000,000. The Treasury expects to collect ap proximately $400,000,000 during March, when the first payment of 1922 taxes falls due, it was announced yester day b>' Secretary Mellon. This estimate, however, it was said, "is subject to great uncertainty, since collections during March will be based for the most part on the bust ness of 1922. and will show the full effect of the changes made by the revenue act of 1921." Great Britain send identic instruc tions to their consuls in regard to the assistance to be rendered to the mer chant marine of their respective countries, and had offered to drop its charges against Slater and Brooks without prejudice on condition that the Newcastle consulate be reopened. The Washington government de clined to permit the proposal with reference to identic instructions to enter into the discussions and stated it could not accept a mere dropping of the charges, as such action would not serve to exonerate the two offi cials involved. At that time, how ever, the United States offered to re open the consulate provided the Brit ish government would restore the exequatur and recognition of both Slater and Brooks and make public announcement of the reason for do ing so. The British government In Its note of December 27 declined to change its original position. THE EVENTSOU STAR, WASHTyrOTCTF, if. tT„ THURSDAY, MARCH 1. 1923.

M’NARY MAY GET RECESS APPOINTMENT Should the Senate fail during tho session to close March 4 to act upon the nomination of James G. McNary to be controller of the currency. President Harding, in all probability, will place Mr. McNary in the position by a recess appointment. This was learned today on high au thority at the Treasury Department, officials of which feel that there is a chance for McNary's nomination to be confirmed on Saturday, when a vole Is to be had. In case tho Senates, however, re jects the McNary nomination and confirms the nomination of D. R. Crls singer, now the controller of the cur rency, to be governor of the Federal Reserve Board, there probably will be no recess appointment by the President. Thomas P. Kane, deputy controller of the currency, would act during the interim, it was explained until a new controller could be ap pointed. on previous statements and spe cifically accused Mr. Hull of spend; ing SIOO,OOO to win the nomination. ‘T am reluctant to believe the wom an said such a thing,” Mr. Hull sain. “It is entirely untrue, of I doubt if my total expenses up to date have exceeded $2,500; certainly not more than $3,000."

He declared he had no fear of any Investigation Mrs. Huck might launch.
