Says Plan for Afternoon Pa
. rade Puts Matter in Dif
ferent Light.
"Worst Hoodlum Would Gaze
With Awe on Pageant," De
clares Mrs. Gardener.
"I was misinformed regarding the
pwrpoees of the suffragettes to use
Pennsylvania avenue as a marching
place the afternoon preceding the
! inauguration. I thought they -want
ed the use of the thoroughfare
for the evening of March 3." Major
Richard Sylvester, Superintendent of
"Even the worst hoodlum would
gaze with awe on the pageant we
purpose giving. It will not be a
night affair, hut an afternoon one. I
have too much regard for American
manhood to think, even for a mo
ment, that the suffragettes would re
ceive ill treatment on such a march."
Mrs. Helen H. Gardener, publicity
agent of the suffragettes.
Are Near Agreement
"Public sentiment demands liberal
'treatment ot the suffragettes." Capt.
James F. Oyster, president of the
Chamber of Commerce.
The suffragettes and the Superinten
dent of Police came-near reaching some
kind of an agreement this afternoon on
the proposition or permitting the former
to march down Pennsylvania avenue
March, J--ami show the entire nation
that women are a power to be reckoned
with Jn future political contests.
Major Sylvester Bays the request for
a. nerrnlt never has been formally made
of him. He has been under the Impres
sion thai the women wanted 'to make
their mlle-l6ng march In the evening oi
the day preceding the Inauguration.
Such a thing would be Impossible, he
says, on account or the great crowds,
the preparations for the parade and the
difficulty of policing the Avenue. Mrs.
Helen H. Gardener, who Is the press
representative of the non-militant suf
fregettes. says a formal reqeust will
be made of Major Sylvester tomorrow
that her sisters be permitted to use the
Avenue on the afternoon preceding the
Women Have Wo Fear.
This, Major Sylvester says, puts the
proposition In an entirely different light.
Tf the march is made at night, he says,
his men will be unable to safeguard the
women. Mrs. Gardener, on the other
hand,. says that even If the march is
nrade at night she has enough faith in
American manhood to believe that the
women would receive ample protection
from any disorderly crowd that might
r attack or jeer at mem.
fJ As for the possibility of a riot, of
militancy, or Insult, the women feel
there Is not the slightest chance in
connection with the parade.
"Even the worst hoodlum would only
Want to gaze at this pageant in awe
and respect," declared Mrs. Gardener.
"We do not fear the American man,
and there is not the remotest possibility
of a riot, for our parade will be beauti
ful and dignified. We don't want to
rub elbows with the crowd in the sense
that we want to have any trouble, and
furthermore, we will employ no mili
tant tactics."
Ask Trade Bodies' Aid.
In their effort to reach a settlement,
the suffragettes have enlisted the aid
of the Chamber of Commerce and the
Board of Trade. Capt. James F. Oyster,
of the former organization, said today
he thinks the civic bodies of the city
will try to Inllucnce Major Sylvester
to change his mind.
"Public sentiment demands a liberal
treatment of the suffragettes," both
Mrs. Gardener and Captain Oyster de
clare. From 5,000 to 25,000 women will be
In the pageant the larger number if
the Avenue is obtained.

cottage practically nothing Is known,
and. he seems to have led a secluded
existence for months.

Despite the fact that Mrs. Erooks and
her husband have separated, she has
given many brilliant entertainments in

with the Albemarle Hunt Club a num
ber of times this fall. She Is. as are
all the members of her family, a su
perb horsewoman, and she, maintains a
Stable of hunters at Mirador. Last
summer her hunters, Castleman and
Tom Brown, won a number of ribbons in
th Virzlnta horse shows.
Mrs. Brooks is the third of the Lang
home sisters to have marital difficul
ties. Elizabeth divorced her husband,
Moncure Perkins, of Richmond, within
the last year, and Nannie divorced
"Bobby" Shaw several years ago and
married William Waldorf Astor short
ly afterward. The other sisters are
Mrs.Charles Dana Gibson and Mrs. Paul

spiracy prisoners had been received.
Even newspaper men were not permit

kept secret. It was admitted by the

Dynamite Prisoners
Will Not Be Returned
To Indiana for Bonds
INDIANAPOLIS, ind.. Jan. 6. There
is smull likelihood that the prisoners
will have to be brought back to In
di&napolls to provide bonds, as both
District Attorney Mll.er and his spe
cial assistant for the trial, James W.
Noel, took the view at a conference to
day that tne bonds may be Mgneu at
the prison and bent to Judge Anderson
for approval. The question of the sufll
tiencv of the bonds will lie with Judge
Anderson. Under the law he may not
accept cash bonds, but it is optional
with him as to whether surety company
bonds. Indemnified bonds, and bends
F.gned by residents of other districts
will be approved. Such bonds had been
provided for the men before the trial of
the case and Judge Anderhon, on the ob
jection of Mr. Miller, declared them un
acceptable. Mr. Miller intimated today
that lie would Interpose no such ob
jections at this time.

that a light bentence will be recom

Foes Think State Executive
Too Friendly to Amalga
mated Steel Interests.
A vigorous protest Is being carried up
to Gov. AVoodrow Wilson, against the
selection of former Governor Norrls, of
Montana, to be Secretary of the Inter
ior. Governor Norrls visited the President-elect
a few days ago, and the lat
ter complimented him highly, after he
had gone away. The impression was es
tablished among people who have been
watching Cublhet-maklng procedure,
that Governor Norrls Is being seriously
considered for the Interior portfolio.
Opposition to his selection Is based on
the declaration that he has been alto
gether too friendly wltlj the great
Amalgamated Copner political machine,
which rules Montana, most of the time,
with an iron hand, nnd has been decid
edly unfriendly to the conservation pro
gram. In this connection, there is a consid
erable movement In favor of the reten
tion of Secretary Walter L. Fisher. It
is, of course, entirely non-partisan In
character, but is backed by a good
many people who supported Mr. Wilson
In his campaign.
Acceptance Doubtful.
One of the movers in this Fisher cam
