Late Senator’s Effects,
Stored in Washington, Dis
r posed of at Auction.
‘ Connoisseurs of art, with their eyes
• on rare prints anil notable early Anieri
jean paintings; members of Congress
seeking some trifling remembrance of a
, once-honored colleague, and society ma
, trons searching for some bit of furniture
with a colonial history, all gathered to
day at Sloan’s Art Galleries when the
effects of the late Senator Frank B.
i Rrandegee were knocked down .under
1 the auctioneer's hammer.
, All of the rare works of art that the
\ former Senator from Connecticut had
! collected with pitch care, the famous
books with which he had filled the
shelves of his library, his tine Oriental
rugs and the bric-a-brac he had gath
•creil from many parts of the world were
’ ordered sold "to the highest bidder” by
the late statesman’s administrators.
I. ending Connoisseur!* at Sale.
As a result leading connoisseurs
from Philadelphia, New York and even
as far West as Chicago, have been at
tracted to Washington in the hope of
picking up "at a bargain” some of
■ the fine works of art, with Which
Senator Brandegee filled his home. It
is estimated that his collection of
.paintings, one selected with care and
at great expense, must be sacrificed
for 1 ess than half of its original cost.
In it arc two original etchings by
Van Rijn Rembrandt, and another
original etching by the famous Anders
Zorn, the artist's signed proof and
one of his masterpieces. Then there
also is a pastel, by Dwight W. Tryon
and a painting signed by Isomer D.
Martin. But it was Senator Brande
gee’s early American collection that
was most noteworthy, including
among others the following:
Portrait of Washington.
A portrait of Gen. George Washing
ton, by Rembrandt Peale, being one
of his famous "porthole paintings,”
a painting by Thomas Sully, which
was especially mentioned in Sully’s
book; "The Capture of Major Andre,”
attributed to John Trumbull: paint
ing inscribed, "John Paul Jones, com
mander of the squadron in the serv
ice of the Thirteen United States of
North America. 1770.” artist unknown;
a full length portrait of La Fayette,
attributed to Scheffer.
Other Celebrities Portrayed.
In addition there is a full length
portrait of Henry Clay, by Healy; a
portrait of Alexander Broughton, by
Jeremiah Theus; another of Gen.
Ulysses S. Grant, by Knoch Wood
Perry; one of Edwin M. Stanton, Sec
retary of War in Lincoln's cabinet,
by George C. Lambdin; another of
Daniel Webster, by James H. Wright,
from the famous Thomas B. Clarke
collection. At the time Senator
Brandegee bought the latter, a por
trait of Gilbert brought $21,000.
Four days will be occupied in dis
posing of Senator Brandegee's ef
fects. Today and tomorrow will be
flevoted to selling his household fur
hiture and bric-a-brac. Thursday and
end Friday will be given over to his
pictures and books, which constituted
the most valuable of his possessions.

His Oath of Office
By Mother-in-Laiv
Sons-in-law often swear at motli-
but the usual custom
in this respect was considerably
varied here today, when a moth
er-in-law swore in a son-in-law.
She was Mrs. Alary Jeannette
Loeffel, assistant clerk of the Dis
trict .Supreme Court, and he was
Thomas Ellis Lodge, elevated to
day from special assistant to
United States Attorney' Gordon to
a regular assistant.
Four other special assistants
were placed on the regular roll
at the same time. They were Miss
M. Pearl McCall, David Akin Hart,
William H. Collins and William
Delegates Discuss Proposal for
Federal Trade Commis
sion Probe.
The several bills pending in Con
gress to deal with co-operative mar
keting of farm products were up for
analysis and judgment today by dele
gates attending the third annual con
vention of the National Council of
Farmers’ Co-operative Associations.
The executive committee of the
council already has gone on record as
opposed to any further legislation on
the question at this time, and it is
the purpose of leaders of the move
ment assembled here to formulate a
definite policy with regard to pend
ing bills. These include the McNary-
Haugen, the Curtis-Aswell, the Nor
ris-Sinclair and Capper-Williams
Aaron Sapiro, a leader in the move
ment, specifically opposed each of
these measures in an address pre
pared for today’s session. The co
operative movement, he contended,
needs not more legislation at this
time, but the active administrative
backing of the Government to
strengthen its development.

died at the age of 90, when a girl
