BELIEVEII BITTER PILL FOB Hl?
Rumored That 8ec:?tary Taft and
Secretary Root Both Urged Thut
Meseage be 8oftened?Motives for
th* Message Coming to Light.
?WASHINGTON, D. C, Feb. 3.?The
political effect that President Rooso
yelt'a mossngo. having for Its text the
"re-enactment of Uio Employers' Lia?
bility law, will linvo Is the subject of
sravo discussion In Washington. Re
jmlblcnn senators* who ate most fa?
miliar with polities seem to be
jtfrssiiie; wnkerul nlghta. It was ap
parent today that "nleeplng" oji the
message had not. cooled the wrath of
Oioso who denounced It In private
yesterday, and some went so far
to say that It was a situation in which
party must be put nHldo for country.
At tho -Willto House there was a
.?hower of congratulatory telegrnma
ahd messaged fmm. widely scattered
points, indicating that statesmen were
perhaps taking the document morel
eoylously tlmn it was received In some]
other quarters.
Considerable political Interest at
taetwH to tho fact; that tho messages
In Bald-, to have beon submitted to
Scevotitry- Taft and Secretary Root,
both of whom urged that It bo soft?
ened in, tone. A question suggested
by tbla fact Is whether Secretary Taft
is willing to Indorse tho principles s<>t
forth In the document, and If he does
thin what effoet it will havo upon his
political chances. There are som0|
who b^lieye that the massage la prov?
ing; rather a bitter pill for the admin-I
. lstrat ion candidate, who I? supposed |
to stand for tho continuance of the
ll6osovolt policies if elected. Other?|
argue Uiat the message will bo ac?
cepted as the utterance of a man con?
vinced that lie Is right and willing to
Stand in defence of his honest con?
victions. It must 1>? admitted, how?
ever, that liu Washington the message I
went vary wide of (striking a popular|
note. CongresB resents tho assump?
tion of tho President that It would
not, unleso driven to do so by the leg?

have been introduced.

In Congross it in felt that the mos
BAge will provo a burden for Secre?
tory Toft, but there are others whoj
are confident that tho great mass of
tbo peoplo will, ns In the past, como
to tho support, of a poptilar Prcaldont
and back him up in his advanccvl po?
sition. Members of Congrej* have
too often mot ?with this situation not
to take" It into consideration at this
timo, although It Is assorted that this!
support ol tho President's policies hasj
In a nu-aauro boon alienated. Con-1

President Roosevelt rotaJne<i a won?
derful hold tipon the American peoplo
to fall to tako tals olomont Into con?
sideration. Tho political effect of tho
document will bo watched with solici?
tude. It would require but slight un
?urance that the personal popularity
of tho President, which haw rarely
failed him, was waning as a result of
his advanced ideas to precipitate a
direct attack upoa them In tho Senate.
It In said today that Secretary Taft
will be called upon l.y bis political
opponents la the Republican party to
nay whether or not he approves the
message. Ills acceptance of tho reit?
eration of tho flooseveltlan principles
therein contained will not bo ouftl
clent for IiIb opponents, but ho will
l?e asked to go further nnd accept or
repudiate tho language of tho moa
snge. This was a sentlmn^t variously
expressed by many of the Republi?
can leaders, who declared that the
party and tho country ought to know
where Secretary Tuft now stands In
view of the advanced position as?
sumed by the President
It is declared by some that the
PreamV-nt. has unwittingly nmde the
nomination of Secretary Taft Improb?
able. Unless Secretary Taft accepts*
the message In its ontlrety, hin op?
ponents say. ho will be shown to have
been swept off his feet by bin chief
supporter. Roosevelt and Hughes
were named by all the-po men as the
probable contenders for tho Republi?
can nomtnntion for President at Chi?
cago.
Mn?nwhllo the mast of Congress is
sticking to Its llr.sl estimate of the
message, which is that it wan unne?
cessary. Much gossip as to how tho
document originated was current to?
day, It Is said that the mes?
sage wuk an oxperpt from Ute
annual mcswgo which wan cut out
ui>on the urgent advice of counsellors.
The President, It Ir said, was Influ?
enced I'y tho pictures drawn to the
'effect which bis utterance would havo
upon buslnoiMi conditions. The mes?
sage was promptly brought out for
present use when the panic, was over
and it was thought to be tiely. An?
other explanation of It Ik that Pres?
blent Roosovell had written It fol?
lowing the clwrge made by Justice
Prower, of the United States Supremo
Conrt4 In New York city, to the ef?
fect that he wos "playing bide and
seek" with the peoplo on tho third
term lsaue. \
Tlila message Is reported to have
been shown to several members of
the cabinet. Including Secretary Taft.
It Is also said that Secretary Taft
opposed the Bending of the message
to Congress from first to hint and,
despairing In his attempt, confined his
efforta to toning down certain portions
I of It which to hlni seemed top strong.

Onb College Man Who Proved tho
'Worthlessness of Examinations.
Somo college professors Insist that
tbo examination system Is a failure
and they can cite instances which
they iH-llevo bear out their s!de> of
tho case.' One of these faculty mon.i
a recent graduate from a largo uni?
versity. mM:
"Wlu-a I wan In college there was
a man of groat capacity who had

8TUOY STEEL FOR GUNS.
Special Ordnance Board Experiment?
ing to Gel Bettor Alloy.
WASHINGTON. T>. C, Feb. 4.?Un?
der the supervision of tho bureau of
ordnance, naVy department, a special
ordnance board la making Investiga?
tions and experiments relative to the
steel used In guns. A special allot?
ment from Congreta is- to aid tho
board in its Investigations.
Within, the last year much progress
ban been made In connection with tho
alloys of certain substances with steel,
tnd there is reason to l>e1levo that
among these alloys there can be found
a metal for use In the bore of the gun
which will resist erosion to a far
creator extent than does tbo steel
which Is now toeing used. One of
'ho princlpil objections to tho heavy
*nns which Are at great velocity ia
?ho fact that tho erosion Is so great
that It reduces the life of tho gun to
a comparatively short time.
With a metal of great rosismnco for
tho t-ube of a gun it may bo possible
to use larger charges of powder and
carry tho pressure far above the 50,
000 foot tons for the 12-Inch gun. to
which they, are now limited.
A Chicago trolley car couductor
routed three highwaymen who tried to
hold him up. Doesn't it give you tho

Well Known Political Writer Says

Walter Wellman Who i0 Making a
Tour of tho Stato Sees No Hope
Whatever for tho Forker-DIck Com?
bination. I
CHICAGO, Feb. 3.?Writing to the
Record -Horald from Columbus on the
]>olitlcal situation in Ohio, Waller
Wellmem says:
"Complete Is tho political revolution
In Ulfs stato olTocted by tho elimina?
tion of Forakor and the rlno of Taft.
Of the 88 counties In. Ohio all but
two or throe?and these small?will
Bend T?lt delegates to the state con?
vention. The Forakor forces have
mado no contest for control of the
state convention, und If they had done
so the result would not have been
changed, so overwhelming is the Taft
sentiment among the people.
"Of the 18 delegate! to the national
convention at Chicago, all will 1a> for
Taft. The most of tlio Foraker-Dlek
I people can now hope for Is contesting
delegations from two or throo dis?
tricts, and it is doubtful if there will
bo any contests. Mr. Forakor is be?
lieved to be too big; u man to go to
Chicago na a formal candidate for tho
presidency with no other following
from his own state than a handful of
rump convention contestants
"Now that tlvei revolution has Ixrni
oHectcd and the .political leadership
has fallen Into new hands, men ure
looking- forward to see who an? llkoly
to Im the chief actors on tho stage of
tho w>ar future. Although no liard
and fast slate has been arranged, It
Is probable the delegates at large
from Ohio to Chicago, tho 'big four,'
will be Governor Harris, Arthur I.
Vorys, Tuft's manager; Myron T. Her
rlck and Chinrios P. Taft, brother of
tho Secretary, with Mr. Vorys as
chairman of th? delegation.
"The leglBlnturo to bo chosen this
year will elect a successor to Mr.
Forakor in the Senate, and tho talk
Is that Governor Harris mny bo given
tho honor and that after blm Charles
P. Taft, of Cincinnati, will stand a
good chance. It in conceded that Se?
itor Dick must fall by, the wayside
for his mistake in standing with For?
akor, and when tho time comes to
chooso his successor from the North
em i>art of tho stato it ts beJlev?d
Myron T. Ilorrlck is lu excellent po?
sition to carry off tho prize.
"Much has boon written and sa'd
In the East as to Mr. Taft's Ineffi?
cient and blundering managers hero
In Ohio. It la commonly believed that
Mr. Vorys Is what a Now York paper
enlls him, n "goober politician.' Even
President Roosevelt was nt one time
convinced Utat Mr. Vorys was not
quite up to the mark. But when one
comes to inquire carefully- Into Ute
history of the Ohio campaign, now'
virtually closed with a complete Taf
triumph, no evidence{is found upon
which to base stich conclusion."
TWO POLITICAL STUMP
SPEECHES IN THE HOUSl
Representative Townsend Praises Re?
publican Party and Is Answered
by Congressman Cockrane.
(By Associated rressj
WASHINGTON. IX C. Feb. 3 ?
Three of the giants of tho House ot
Representatives hod their Innings to?
day. Technically the Indian appro?
priation bill was under discussion, but
legislation was relegated to tho back?
ground while national politics occu?
pied the stage.
Before tho political quostlon crop?
ped out, the House, with next to tiho
largest attendance of the session
present, with but ono dissenting voice
passed a general wklowa' pension bill
granting a fiat pension of $12 a month
to the widows of nil honorably dis?
charged soldiers of the United States
who have not heretofore received the
benefits of the pension law. and an
Increase of $4 n month for those who
have under tho act of June 27. 1890.
The law expressly wolves tho lim?
itation of property hoMIng*. Tho hlH
involves tho expenditure, of more than
$12 .000,000 an mini lv.
Tho political debate was opened by
Mr. Townsend of Michigan, who in
a prepared speech claimed for the
Republican party credit for all nn
ftonal legislation in the last 60 yeans
of vltAl interest to the public. In this
he was vigorously disputed by Mr.
Cockrane of New York, who after?
wards launched Into a discussion of
the President's nVessag? of a few
days ago, his remarks frequently
evoking applause on both Bides ot
tho chamber.

WOMEN'S NOS
It In -almost Inevitable* that tba nose

should bo avoided and one should
study hygiene . to the extent of not

nose red' as wit ill a? odd. Women
who ory much usually havo chronic
red noses. To bleach n n-??e in dif?
ficult, but It can be done.
The best of bleach is the uppin tea
of Southern memory. The ujipl s
aro nieoped with one quince to three
apples. When there l? nothing but
pulp the mass U pressed tlirough a
lino loth. Tho appki tea to made i*
used upon 'tho redd'ah nose to bleach
the ?kln and make It smooth.
Tho collar requires attention. A
tight collar .will make tl?o, nose pur?
ple and will glvo a headache at the
same time. The collar must be easy
and tho mind must bo calm. Mental
calm Is of the upmost importance
whore a red nose is concerned.
The noso whould bva matwaged ev?
ery day, bis'j the massage should be
from both sides to the tip. The
woman who maasagett her nose from
side to side or from the tip to the
ba?o will d-Btroy Mho contour of hor
face. When rnnssaglng tho noso
press it upward at each side. Give
the tip a ItUe pinch and then press
It upwont again.
Common sense should go with 'the
masisagu. ' The woman Whode nose
points straight, upward and outward
should prees downwnjrtd very slights
upon the tip, She should bend It as
though she were "frying to mould s
Hornau nose.
It la quite iCoay bo mould a nose
for It Is soft and easily managed.
Hut the trouble in then fcfw peoplo

way It should go. One goa^Tol rule
will not do for nil noses.
The womio with a long, thin nose
very p;d ou tho tip should rub it
dally with a rough towel or with o
bit of rubber sponge. This Is to re?
el ore Uie circulation. Then she
should mat; sago the nose, pressing

Thin with a little brush, which la
really a very stiff toothbrush, she
goes over the nose carefully until
she has scraped JE to tho very tip.
She la now-muly to spray It.
Spraying the face with hot water
Is absolutely necessary tor the wo?
man who does not want h*rr nose to
be too red. The- hot water acts very
pleasantly upon the noso and the
cheeks, making them wen and pure
In none.
When tjho face has been 6pmyed
It la creamed with a good skin food,
which is allpwed to sink in. After
awhllo the extra cream is taken off
with a rag and tho taoo ia let cool
down. The beat rag is* a piece of
old silk shirting, which can be kept
for the purpose.- There are women
who kcop all their old <~-etlK shirts
s?mply to use as complexion rags.
The nwtor of putting powder nr.
the nose Is important.. It Is the l?*t
step In the makeup and it must be
putt on generously but wisely.
The powder must be perfume 1 to
bo agreeable, nnd It must be the
color of the skin. A brunette pow?
der Is becoming to most face? and
It Is put on the face in a cloud
whkh Is wafted all over the com?
plexion.
Then a little of it Is rubbed Into
the skin of th? nose. iAter, Just be?
fore one goes out, the nose is pow?
dered again. Great care must be
ttokeu to rub off the superfluous white
dust.
It takes nearly an hour for powder
to become part of .the skin, and the
woman who Is going out shoull make
?up at Just an hour before. If she is
going ifto redden her cheeksnu hour
before Is none too lor.ga time to pre?
pare her face.
Womon . who t-odden 1 the face can
do to by the natural method, and the
woman who?<o noso 1st too highly
colored should by all means tint, her
cheeks. 9lu? need not. use rouge, but
she can redden tbom In other ways.
ES IN WINTER
She can take a wet towel and light?
ly daub her cheeks. Then with a rag
sho Koos over her cheeks briskly
(to bring the blood' to the surface.
This. It very good for any woman's
skin, and the c-reful woman will see
to It that biCT cheeks are briskly
rubbed twice dally.
It clears the pores, takes off the
worn out skin and makes the com?
plexion fresh. Moreover. It mak'vt
[the noso look prettier. A little rouge
I can bo added If neceesury, and It
looks \<\ry well indeed upon a back?
ground of smooth pink skin.
A dash of cold water frequently
?applied with a spray will bleach the
nose for a fe.w minute-.; and a slight
rubbing with snow is good fo a nose
that Is scarlet. IV-.it it Is better ro put
a good bbach upon it at night and
Kft It, grnduully fade by morning.
The woman who lias tho habit of
rubbing her no-e skyward will lie re?
warded by flaring nostrils. The
pushing of the no?e upward gives it
a wing shape. It Is better 1? pinch
