White, delegates from the District to the Fourth Amerl ran Peace Congress to be held in St. Louis Slay 1 to May 3. American peace congresses Mrv been held biennially since 1907, when the first, the president of which was Andrew Carnegie was held in New York. The second congress was at Chicago, and the third at Baltimore. The fourth will be ushered In with the dedication of the Jefferson Memorial a $500,000 structure commemorating the Louisiana Purchase, the greatest peaceable acquisi tion of territory in the world's history. President Wilson has accepted the honorary presidency of the fourth con gress. Congressman Richard Bartholdt of Missouri will be the active president.

Griggs, former United states .Attorney uenerai, ana Oscar Straus, former American ambas sador to Turkey. Former President Taft and Senator Ellhu Root have accepted the honorary vice presidencies.

Senator Tillman of South Carolina a few days after the ina-uguration pic turesquely alluded to the wild asses that had broken into the green corn. There, athirst, they were helping them selves to their AIL The Senator con ceived of them as quenching a drought they had experienced since the far-otf days of the last Cleveland Administra tion. Nevertheless. In spite of the humor of the South Canollna Senator, ther? are a lot of sad-eyed gentlemen hover ing about Washington .and still more to be found back tit the corners and crossroads, who have not broken Into the green corn. They have got no near er to It than to be allowed to stand on the wrong side of the fence and look over into the promised land. More over, many of them are comic;? to the conclusion thisls as .near as they ever will get. It has now been nearly a month and a half since the n-w Administration began. Had things moved In the good old Jacksonian way and the policy of "to the victor belongs the spoils" been lived up to, there would by this time have been mighty few jobs at the dis posal of Uncle Sam left unfilled. No Hurry. As it Is, President Wilson has evit-ced no hurry to fill the places and so many Republicans are going calmly along fill ing Democratic offices as to make the Democratic candidates grind their teeth. The President refuses to be hurried. The same Is true of the deportment heads. Intimations keep olng out that not until the tariff is safely out of the House win the President do much in way of miscellaneous office-giving. The offices are held -over the heads of Sen ators and members of the House as a. club, and the Democrat in Congress wtio really Knows' wnat ne is going to draw for his hungry, thirsty constitu ents is a rare bird. This seems amcislng enough to per sons who are not hunting office, but it is a sad story to a lot of the "boys" who fought and bled In the trenches. The troubles of many of them have be come by this time 'well known to Wash ington. In many cases, seekers for of- nce came nere a weeK or two uetoro the Inauguration. On Job Early. They concluded that would be the test way to get in on jthe ground floor and close up to the reviewing stand on March 4. Not a few have been here ever since and ara no nearer getting appointments than they were two months ago. More than one hapless Job hunter In Washington today Is "on his- uppers." Others have borrowed money from some friend to get home on. Many a mem ber of Congress, if he were disposed, could ttll of loans made to needy con stituents who came to the Capital about Inauguration time, "buoyant with hope, and. have gone home tlnce then de- Potomac Band Concerts Will Start Tomorrow Concerts will be gU'en by the Ma rine Band in Potomac Park, com mencing tomorrow every Wednesday and .Saturday afternoon.

A number of patriotic societies held an niversary meetings in honor of his memory, and a constant stream of vis itors to the house in which he died has been observed. pressed and In despair : nd In a frame of mind well-calculated to drive them over to the Bull Mooc If the Democratic Senators and mem bers of the House knew that thoir recommendations would be favorably received by the President it would not be so bad. But they do not. As a mat ter of fact. President Wilson has not left the Senators and House members In the dark In this. He has been frank enough. He has given It to be understood mat he win accept tne recommenda tions of Senators and House members as prima facie evidence that men ought to be appointed, but If for any reason he concludes otherwise he will name some one else. He Is not going to be bound by these recommendations in .any sense. Is Typical. The case of a Missouri job hunter which was related about the Capitol today Is typical. He came here twenty seven days ago In quest of appointment as consul at a particular place. He saw his Congressman and Sena tors. He impressed on them the value ot his political services and finally found his way to Secretary Bryan. Mr. Bryan, who has a kindly feeling for a good Democrat, gently, but firm ly advised him that the place he was hunting for did not exist, that there wasn't any such Job as the one he wanted and, besides, that the consular ervlce wasn't much on politics any how. -. Tni MIssourlan was preparing to hc:id ior home with most of ills visible supply of ready cash gone at last accounts. The moral of this is: "If vou want a Job under the new Democratic Admin istration, don't go around looking for it." v Burton Holmes Says In Speaking of Jnno Mate The Jfew Health Drink. "I know what a blessing It has been to millions in South America and am glad to see it made available to North Americans." (Signed) E. Burton Holmes. icH--kf Qaaff Deeply of Jnno Mate, You'll smack lour .Lips, amile and Lire Longer. Mr. Holmes has established an in ternational reputation as one of the most traveled and also one of the most ''observing men of the age. His opinion of Juno Mate is in exact ac cord with practically every notable physician in Europe, England and America for they all agree that Juno Mate is far superior in every way to coffee, tea or even chocolate as a health giving, energy sustaining beverage. For centuries this has been the na tional drink of South American coun tries. If you have ever traveled in Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, Argentine, or any neighboring country you will re member this as the one universal beverage, drunk in great preference to coffee or tea, even in the coffee producing districts. Juno Mate (pronounced mat-tay) has now been brought to the United States, and from the hearty welcome it has received bids fair to become the most popular drink of the age. Not a "made" drink, but one of Na ture's greatest gifts to man. Special ly grown, selected and prepared for us in the highlands of South America. It will more than take the place of coffee or tea with your meal but don't think of It as being one of the numerous so-called "coffee substi tutes."

Couple Wed in Alexandria, and Win Snug Fortune By Barely Few Moments. Central Labor Union Will Begin Organization of the Local Operators at Once. Those who believe that all romance has been knocked out of life should read this story of F. Joseph Clark and Miss Meryle C. Sagley who, after many difficulties, were married last night in Alexandria. Every Ingredient of ro mance, from the dashing taxicab, in lieu of horse, to the minister awakened just before midnight, including the legacy which might not be received, is here. Clark said he was a contractor of Washington, and some time ago a rela tive bequpathed him a snug little for tune on the condition that he be mar ried before he was thlrty-flvc. The marriage license must bear his age as thirty-four. Clark has for some time loved Miss Sagley. His birthday is April 15, and today he has been upon this earth thirty-live years. Yesterday Miss Sagley, who lives In Altoona and Is twenty-four, came to Washington, and the earnest protesta tions of love from Mr. Clark, and his Imminent prospect of losing the fortuno, because he could marry none other, melted ber heart and she said, yes. The happy couple hailed a "taxi," and reached Alexandria at a late hour. After some search the marriage licence clerk was found, and the Rev. C. R. Strausberg was awakened and per formed the ceremony Just before midnight. The organization of telephone switch board, operators will be commenced by the Central Labor Union here Im mediately. L. A. Sterne, vice chair man of the Central Labor Union organ ization committee, telegraphed to the secretary of the United Brotherhood of Electrical Workers at Springfield. III., "today requesting him to send a repre sentative to Washington at once. The representative Is expected this week and will be present at the next, meeting of tha Central Labor Union, Monday night. In the meantime, everything possible will be done to have the operators ready, and the representative will pro ceed with organization with all possible speed. Announcement was made today that practically all labor union organiza tions are behind the movement. At the meeting of the Central Labor Union last night, the organization of tele phone operators was ordered, and the secretary of the Central Labor Union was strongly commended for his action In connection with the shipping of telephone girls to Boston as alleged strike breakers recently. The Boston matter is now being taken up with State organizations of the Federation of Labor all over the country, according to Mr. Sterne, and Is producing a tremendous stir in labor circles. When It Is III Don't Become Alarmed But Give This Fine Laxative. It Is often difficult to tell Just what Is the matter with a crying, peevish baby or child too young to express its feel ings in words, but as a general rule the mother will find that there Is a ten dency to constipation, which has brought on a headache or nervousness. The little one has no pain, but feels "out of sorts." The first thing to try Is a family rem edy containing good but mild laxative properties, and many mothers will say that their choice would be Dr. Cald well's Syrup pepsin. Thousands of mothers keep It in the house for such emergencies, among whom may be men tioned Mrs. Jennie Manuel, Altamont, HI., who began to give her baby. Fred crick. Syrup Pepsin when he was 6 months eld, and has used it ever sine with gratifying results. She writes that Frederick was not growing well and threw up his food, but after a few days use of Syrup .Pepsin he was able to re tain bis food and gained rapidly In weight. Thousands of others are glad to say that Syrup Pepsin saved them many an Illness and many a large doc tor bill, for by administering It prompt ly, when the first symptoms ot illness were noticed, they prevented a serious ailment.
