WILL NOT COMPLAIN TO
FEDERAL COMMISSION
Believed That Such Action Would
Not Stop Dlscrmlnatloa
Against City.
SECRETARY FARRAR RESIGNS
Exploitation Commission Declines to
Accept Resignation and He Agrees
to Continue to Serve for Presort?
I Report of Money Collected and
Expended?Advertising Plans.
Although It was generally expect?
ed that tho Exploitation Commission
would last night take up the mat?
ter of sending n delegation to Wash?
ington to appear 'before Uho national
commission of tho Jamestown expo?
sition relative to tile discrimination
against Nowport 'News In the ad?
vertising matter of tho Jamestown
Exposition Company, the matter was
not brought beforo tho commission,
and, although the Idea of sending
euttj a delegation to Washington
originated with a member of the
comlsslon, a majority of the com?
missioners apparently have no in
toUtion of taking any action along
this line.
In tho opinion of many mombors
of tho commission such a course
would do this city more harm tlhan
good. Tho commissioners who pro
?posod the movement seemed satis
fled from the start that the national
commission could not prevent the
?exposition company from advertising
"Norfolk and tho only advantage tlhls |
city could derive from tho appeal
to tho national commission would
be tho noterloty thereby gained for
tho city. Whether auch noterloty is
'desired is a question but ovldontly
a majority of tho members' of the
Commission nro opposed to that
kind of advertising.
The commission mot in the par?
lors of tho TocahontnB Hotel with
? Chairman ADo Horwitz, In tho cflmli
?i ami the? following mombors pros
ent: Viyor Samuol R. Buxton, R.
M. L'tt, W. S. Upshur, T. U Farrar,
C. ':. Hundley and Alex Meyers
?Mr. Farrar Resigns. ?
Secretary T U Farrar tendered
his roslg*aatinn to tho Commission,
but It was not accepted and at tho
request of those present, Mr. Farrar
consented to servo as secretary of
tho commission until a successor
can be solected.
Tho secretary made a detailed ro
port of what had been done by the
commission up to this time. This
report showed that about $200 had
been expended for a double page ad
vorUsemcnt in tho "Jamestown Edi?
tion of tho Rydalo Hand Hook," 100,
000 thousand copies of which are be?
ing distributed through but the South:
nnd West, and that about $:W0 had I
been exponded on 200,000 envelopes
t-earlng the device adopted by the
?commission. These envelopes will
bo ready for distribution in a few
days.
Cuts Ordered.
Tito commission bus also ordered
four cuts of scenes in und about the
?city, which will be used in adver?
tisements to appear In tho May issue
of magazines, of which copies will
be issued about the time tho James*
town exposition opens. One of these
cuts represents Uncle Sam stepping
from the exposition to Newport News,
another is made from a photograph
or the waterfront, showing tho ship?
yard, tho Chesapeake ,fc Ohio piers
nnd the other piors on tho waterfront.
Another shows a beautiful woman
holding a map of Tidewater Virginln,
Hhowlng the location of tho exposi?
tion, Newport News, Hampton. Phoo
. bus and Old Point Comfort. The
fourth cut shows a bugler standing
on the deck of a United States bat
tlcship sounding tho "mess" call.
About $2,000 In Hand.
Mr. j. a. wniett. treasury* of the
commission, was unable to attend the
meeting on account of illness, nnd ho
renort of the treasurer was receiv?
ed. It is estimated, however, that
the commission has approximately
$2.000 in hand with about $1.300 yet
to be collected. Those who have
promised subscriptions to lhe exploi?
tation fund should send the amount
of their subscriptions lo Treasurer
Wlllott or Secretary T. I,. Farrar.
in lieu of issuing n booklet con?
taining a general guide to this cltr

sion decided to have' ?0,000 or more

ANOTHER CHILD LABOR
LAW IN THE SENATE
Senator Simmons of North Carolina
Has a Measure Which Doesn't
Infringe on State Rights.
(Dy Associated Press.)
WASHINGTON, D. C. Jan. 25.?
Senator Simmons today' Introduced
a cfliild labor bill which Is designed
to mnko it unlawful for an inter?
state carrier tOj transport from one
State; of production Into another
State products of a mine or factory
In which children aro employed or
permitted to work in violation of
tho child labor laws of the State
In which the factory or mine is
located. ? F^lWlW4'
This bill differs from the Bevor
Idgo bill in that it does not under?
take to make a child labor law,
but recognizes the child labor laws
of the several States and seeks to
to make them effective. It is based
upon the idea .that nearly all the
States have child labor law.? and
that they arc largely lnoffectlvo
and will remnin so as long as they
can only "I? enforced by local prose?
cution for their violation.
This Mr. Simmons thinks, -will
mako tho State laws, effective by
making it' practically impossible for
a factory or m'no to violate those
laws and obtain tfno benefits of
interstate transportation.

An "urgent deficiency" bill author?
izing n loan of $1,000.0(10 by the Fed?
eral government to the Jamestown
Exposition was passed in the Senate
yesterday.
The exposition company officials be?
lieve that this bill will pass the
House with little opposition and ex?
pect the million 'dollars to be avail?
able in the near future. Tho prece?
dent of lending money to expositions
has been set and. as there can be no
complaint upon the security offered
by the Jamestown Company, no good
reason can be advanced for opposing
the loan. It Is proposed to repay the

ATTACKS ARMY OFFICERS.
Col. Galnee Accuses Them of Acting
Like Aristocrats Toward Privates.
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J.. Jan. 25.?
Aristocracy In the American army
whs . bitterly nttacked in a speech
before a large gathering of church?
men this evening by Col. Noel Gnlnes,
late of the United States army and
the Kentucky militia. He fiercely as?
sailed the arguments of advocates of
tho army canteen. Col. Galncs is
himself a member of a distinguished
Southern family, and is a relative of
Congressman John Wesley Gnlnes.
?Ul? GalneH declared that tho deser?
tions from the army were duo princi?
pally to the "upplshness" of many
officers In their dealings with the
privates. Officers, ho said, have
charged these desertions to the nb
sencc of tho army canteen.
"I declare It Is due to tho wide gulf
between the officers and men, tho lack
of fellowship and sympathy between
the. two, and the hlgh-mtndedness ot
the officers, which in some cases can
scarcely bo distinguished from the
attitude of Russian aristocracy to>
ward the peasantry."
Objection of officers to the anti
Cnnteeu law he ascribed the fact that
In disregard of the Federal regula
