URGEHEW FORM Of
. 0. C. GOVERNMENT
. 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. Dr. Battle declared that
this was essential to the policy of' pre
paredness now so prominently before
the country. '
The report of the committee on mu
nicipal legislation, submitted by Chair
man -A. Lcftwlch Sinclair, was adoptetr.
It recommended an increase In the rate
which pawn brokers are permitted to
chargo be Increased to 2 per cent, and
Indorsed tho recommendations of the
District Commissioners catling ror the
purchase of the Dean tract for park
purposes and the construction of a mu
nicipal sewage disposal plant.
Indorsement was given to Senator
Tillman's bill providing a Government
owned, armor plant.
A special committee will be appointed
to conrer with other trade bodies In
furthering the Improvement of the
turnpike from Washington to Leesburg,
Va. Gabriel Edmonston, In a report

Broncho Billy, Seeks To Make
New Orleans Picture Capital
Actor lejieves the JQuif Hstrep

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 motion picture Industry has
volunteered to raise hair or the million-dollar
endowment the Actors'
fund or America' has set Itself to
pertect before the middle of the
summer. The motion picture men
have promised to have half a mil
lion dollars ready to turn over to the
fund by' May 16.
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. Hodktnson, or the Paramount
Corporation; William A. Johnston,
or Motion Picture News; Mitchell
Mark, Adolph Zukor, or the Famous
Players; J, W. Binder. John Wylle.
and J. E. Bulatour.
The Actors' Fund of America was
established many years ago. Its
purpose Is to help Indigent actors
and actresses, and It Is known as
one, of the broadest charities In the
country. Daniel Frohtnan Is the
chairman of .the fund,, and has been
In' active charge of the subscrip
tions rorvsome years. It Is largely
through his efforts that the motion
.picture section has been formed,
Marguerite Snow Injured.
Margaret' Snow,, the .screen star,
who was,formerly leading woman of
the Belasco Theater Stock Company
In this city, has been In the hospital
ever since the making of her last
picture, recovering from injuries re
ceived while that plcture'was In the
making.
The accident which caused the In
jury was the result of the breaking
down of a buckboard In which Miss
Bnow was riding. The accident oc
curred near" Bavanah, Ga. Three if
Miss Snow's ribs were broken and
she was badly scratched.
The picture was "A Corner In Cot
ton," which was shown In Washing
ton last week. Miss Snow did .not
know she was very badly hurt Until
her return to New York, when con
stant pain led her to, consult a phy
sician and an x-ray picture disclosed
the fractured ribs. O. Mi

(Continued from Yeterday.)
CHARLES GORDON, In the loung
ing room of hla club, read and
reread the flaring headlines
that told of June Travis' arreat
on the Red Circle charge.
The lawyer was muttering to, himself:
"Guilty or not she saved me from
prison. No girl with eyes like hers
is a criminal. If If It wasn't for
thla. damnable embezzlement charge
agsVist me, I'd defend her. If only I
could get Farwell to admit I'm Inno

lieve I could clear her. But Farwell
would never "
He glanced up quickly. A man had
hurried Into the room and was speak

who sat near the door.
"Weill" GordDn heard the newcom
er saying. "I think .Sllaa Farwell has
about paid his debt to those employes
of his that he's been swindling."
"Whai's up?" asked Gordon, joining
the group.
"I heard this morning that a crowd
or themitrled to storm his oMce again,
to make him aettle. He had a lot or
roughneck guards, who scattered them.
But Just now, as he was coming hero
from, his factory, for lunch, a lot of
the atrlkcrs mobbed his automobile.
"Did they get him? Or-?'
I don't know. I saw part of the
row. from the club Hop. It was no

pay for his crookednuss, for all I,
The speaker was Interrupted by the

The onlookers renwlm.d outwardly

Under the blaze of Gordon's hypnotic
