Congressman Austin and Sena tor Clapp Address Chamber of Commerce. " A constitution for the District of Co lumbia, embracing a property quali fication ahd educational test, was advo cated last night before the Chamber of ' Commerce by Congressman Richard Austin of Tennessee. It was suggested as an answer to those who oppose Congressional retire 'sentatlon for tho' District on the ground that the presonce of an undesirable vot ing element In the National Capital makes such a step Inadvisable. Congressman Austin, sponsor of a bill now before Congress, argued In favor of self-government for th'e residents of Washington. He criticised the lack of time given to DUtrlct affairs by the members of Con gress and predicted that this attention tvIII grow less as ttmo goes on: and con trasted the right and fitness of the peo ples of the Insular possessions fgr self government with those of the cltizena or the District. Suggests Commission. Senator Moses E. Clapp of Minnesota, on the other hand, admitting the Inade quacy of the present form of the Dis trict government, suggested a more gen eral form of commission government vvlth tho governing body 'residents of and Interested in the city." In suggesting tho educational test and property qualltlcatlon, Mr. Austin aald: "If. Congress really wanted to give you self-government. It eouM Rive a con stitution that would place the control of anairs in tnoso wno pay tne taxes," ae clared tho speaker. "There la also an educational test that might be added. "No,one can tell me that tho business men of Washington aro not capable of conducting a government that would re flect credit on the Capital." Criticises Policy. Senator Clapp criticised sharply the recent policy pursued In building of Washington. Ho pointed to the lack of a great boulovuld along the brow of the Chills that overlook the Capitol, and told of his efforts to have the square that corrcsiionds with that on which tho Congressional Library stands as a alto for a great building to house a meeting place for International com missions. "There la no comprehensive plan," ap parently." said Ectmtor Clapp. "Look at the Union Station, disfigured llko a one-legged trump, through the placing; of the Foatofflce." He termed the proposal to erect the central power plant on the Mall as an effort at "desecration." The erection or tha plant on the Mall, ho said, would not only spoil the beauties of the Po tomac river banks, but would be "a fanlfcatrtlon of a spit It hostile to a plan or beautlficatlon." Approve Battle Report. The chamber unanimously approved the report of Dr. U J. Battle, chairman or the public health committee, urging that pupils In the public schools be in structed to render first aid to the alck and Injured.

OPPORTUNITIES ARE GREAT Originator of Western Cowboy jn Films to Establish New Company in South. The silence as to his future which followed the retirement of Gilbert M. Anderson. "Broncho Billy," from the Kissnay company, has been broken by the announcement that Anderson contemplates organising n new company of his own. ' The Anderson organization Is to ' open up a new field for motion pic ture production, it" i stated, with New, Orleans as Fbf headquarters, and the picturesque scenery of soutnern iyuisian,a, Aiaoama, Mis sissippi, and the Gulf Coast or these States and Texas as locale for Its settings. Leading Woman a Problem. Just 'at, present Mr. Anderson Is bothered over the organization ot his company, and tho selection of a" leading woman Tho flrat named task' will be more easily accomplish ed than the last named. Anderson let It be knqwn In New Orleans the other day that he was looking for a leading woman, and he narrowly beat a regiment of . applicants fur the Job put of town They are said to be visiting the railway stations every day awaiting his return. Anderson has gone to the Paclllc coast for a short business trip, but expects to return to New Orleans within the course of the next two weeks and make final arrangements for tho starting of his company. The namo pr It and the character of pictures to be produced have not yet been, announced. As Broncho Ulllv is one of (he popular characters of the screen drama, and 1 probably as well known as any other distinctive film character. It Is likely that pictures will be produced that will permit the use of this character. Just why no one has ever thought of using New Orleans and tho Gulf States for film purposes before Is one of the odd things about motion pictures. The light and scenic 'advantages aro almost as great as In California, Helping Actors' Fend.

The campaign that has been start ed has enlisted the aid of every motion picture company, as well as the Individual efforts or .'the stars or the Him world. , The stars have many or them been members ot the ' Actors' Kund for years,- and have always shown willingness to- do everything In their power to help it along. . ' In Washington It Is proposed- to utilize, the motion picture theater patrons only tn an Indirect, manner. Samuel Goldfish, of the Lasky com pany, who Is the chairman of the motion picture section of the fund, has asked the .exhibitors to help by declaring May IS to be 'Actors' Kund Day. and to give a certain percent age of their receipts on that day to the fund. Washington to Contribute. That, is the plan that will be followed In Washington, and it is lively that, all the theaters In this city will respond to the ' call. J. Stuart Blackton, of ttie Vitagraph company, is the treasurer or the fund, and the remainder ot the mo tion picture committee Includes Arthur H. Bplegte. of the World Kllm Company; Marcus Loew, W. W.
