A. n., is a state Irnent imued today from tho hcadjuar 2ter of Mrs. George Thatcher Guernsey, 'of Kansas, taking a stand on tho ques ' tton ot tho publication of tho D. A. IL magazine which Is known to bo opposed 'to tho lews of Mrs. William Cummins Story, tho present presldont general. Mrs. Guernsey wants tho publication ' of tho magazlno put on a definite busi ness basis by placing it In the hands ' if a reputablo firm of printers In this city. She doubts tho wisdom of giving a copy to each member of tho organiza tion, and declares that tho publication should be placed on a porcentago basis. Issue At Congress. Tho magazine Question was one of tho vital Issue of tho congress which closed list week, and occasioned moro discus sion than anv other .question. Mrs. Guernsey states that tho maga zine as .t present Issued In New York, has cost the organization for the last three yenrs J24.983.16. She believes that the good ot the organization and the magazine would bo better subserved by turning tho publication ovor to a regular firm of printers, the copy to bo fuinlrhed by the editor elected by tho congress. The significance of Mrs. Guernsey's statement lies In tho fact that she U the leader of the Insurgent faction In the D. A. It. which has opposed Mrs. Story's administration. Her party calls Itself the "consti tutionalists" because they claim that the Story administration has gone be yond constitutional limits In conduct ing the affairs of the organization.

May Be Compensated For Loss of Legs After 3 Years After fifty-three years of effort, George T. Hamilton, of Stanton, Del., seems likely to bo "compensated by tho United States for the loss ot his legs. If the House passes the bill which the Senate did. he will get J 1,000. In 1863, Hamilton age, sixteen, stood in the front door of his home watching a tralnload of soldiers being sent South. One soldier shooting at random for fun, cent a bullet through the boy's legs. Congress after Congress has had the claim beforo it. Tho liability of the Government or the Justice of tho claim never have been questioned ; but net tlcment simply has gone into the annual discard. "If I were appearing for this old man, whoso life and youth this Government is responsible for ruining, I should ex pect any Judge and Jury to award me the highest punitive damages possible .under the statutes," said Senator Sauls bury, who backed the bill. "I give no tice that If Hamilton outlives tho pres ent appropriation It it succeeds I shall move an annual relief bill for the benefit." ' Commerce and Finance Experts Needed By U. S.

April 25.-Mrs. Dorothy Palmcnburc, frlnnd ot Mrs. Margaret Hot ton, gave information to Assistant District Attorney Doollng yesterday which. It 1h lielloved, will be or material value in tho prcstcull'in of lr. Arthur Warren Wake for the murder of his fathci-ln-law. Mrt. Palmenberg knew ot the friend ship between Dr. Waita and Mrs. Hor ton. It wnit In Mrs. Palmenberg' home nt 103 West Seventy-second street, that Mrs. Horton 'nought seclusion after leaving tho Plaza Hotel, whore she had a "studio" apartment with Dr. Walte. Thin was after tho connection of Dr. Walto'wlth the poisoning of John IS. I'eck. Mrs. PnlmenbJrc told Mr. -Doollng she had known Mrs. Horton for many years In tho West. NVIien Mrs. Hor ton came here from Cincinnati she took a room with Mrs. Palmenberz In West Eleventh street. Later Mrs. Palmenberg. who saya she has inherited a fortune, went to live In the Hotel McAlpIn and there Mrs. Horton and her husband. Harry Wood Horton, frequently called upon her. According to Dr. Doollng, the Hortons, after Mrs. Horton became acquainted with Dr. Walte, showed bank books with a balance of 10,000. Mr. Horton talked frequently about going abroad, and rought Information about Invest ments cf a large sum In Europe. She rpoke mostly ot a plan to go there with Walte. Mrs. Horton Is alleged to have said to Mr. Palmenber shortly before the death of Mr. and Mrs. Peck In Dr. Waltc's home In Riverside drive, that ho expected soon to be rid of his wife, and there would be nothing to prevent the trio to Europe. Mrs. Palmenberg alleges that Mrs. Horton frequently talked about disease xerms, ouch as Dr. Walte was collecting at tho time. According to Mr. Doollng. Mrs. Pal menberg alleges that Mrs. Horton knew when Mr. Peck and his wife came to Ne.w York and went to the homo of Dr. Walte. Mrs. Horton also knew that the Pecks were very sick, and Is alleged to have said that they probably would not recover. Mr. Doollng also was Informed that Mrs. Horton took to Walte the sul- phonal' taken -by him while he was guard ed by detectives, and which nearly caused his death. PLAN INVENTORY OF WATER POWER Electrical Engineers to Gather ' Here Tomorrow for Discus sion of Resources. NEW YORK, April 26. Although It Is reported President Wilson refuses to give up hope that Senator Itobert F. Wagner will accept the postmas tershlp ot New York, and yesterday again urged the Senator to recon sider his refusal of the place, Tam many leaders confidently asserted that no amount ot urging couia persuade Wagner to take the Job. In fact, tho telegram sent to Wagner yesterday by the President served only further to Increase the Indignation of tho organization at what they consider the President's thinly veiled attempt to plncate the German-American vot eia in New York and to make his police with Tammany by offering the place to one of the "regulars," who la of German descent. Senator Wagner, before leaving yes terday for a week's automobile trip with friends, received a telegram from tho White House requesting him to recon sider his determination not to accept the nomination, which has already been sent to the Senate. The senator Imme diately sent the President & letter, the contents of which he did not make pub lic, but which assured the President once and for all that he could not take the place. Democrats ot the Tammany brand made no effort yesterday to conceal their feelings, which are decidedly hos tile to tho President. The Washington Administration, they said, has complete ly Ignored the organization since 1912, when it assumed power. It has been hard sledding, they admitted, with city, State and nation in the hands ot tne enemy, and the suffering among th "boys" has been acute. When senator James A. O'Oorman left for Washington he was not In a very amiable fiamo of mind, as the appoint ment of Wagner by the President came as a complete surprise to him. While in the city the Senator has had several earnest talks with tho Tammany lead ers, and learned that the President can expect little or no support rrom Tam many this year. To be sure, the New York delegation to the St. Louis conven tion will cast lt nlnetv votes for th nomlrutlon ot Wilson, bQl that's about all. Tammany will make no contribu tion this year to the national campaign fund, as it did in 1912, and the Tam many spellbinders. It was said in Tam many Hall yesterday, will not be on the Job for the President. Moro than 300 of the foremost elec trical engineers of the country will gather In Washington tomorrow for tho discussion of tho, development ot tho water power resources of th,o United Htaleans related to national industrial efficiency and military preparedness. This meeting Is to be held by the American Initltu'to of Electrical En gineers under the Joint auspices ot a committee on tho development ot water power and the Washington section or tho Institute. Tho meeting will bo called to order at 2:30 o'clock by John J. Carty, chief engineer of the liell Telephone Com panies, in tho red room of tho WlUard. Mr. Carty will address the meeting on the necessity for measures to encourage hydro'clectrlcal development of water power resources. Water Power ts. Food. A Washington speaker will be Dr. Allerton S. Cushman, director of the Bureau ot Industrial Jtesearch, whoso subject will be th; relation of water power to the rood problem. Others on tho afternoon program are Lawrence Addtcka. New York engineer, and president of the American Electro chemical Society, and I O. Htlllwell, of Now York, former president of the institute. In tho evening speakers will be Dr. W. It. Whitney, of Schenectady, of the General Electric Company, and. George Dunn, president of the J. O. White En gineering Corporation, of New York. Purpose of Meeting. Invitations have been aent to Cabinet members and to Senators and itepre sentntlves. John 11. Kinney, of Wash ington, made thla statement In explana tion of tho meeting: "The meeting has been suggested by the committee on development of water power, which sees a, further opportunity lor service to the nation py directing the attention of the public and of Con cress to the fundamental engineering and economic principles that underlie the water power question, and which must be taken into account if hydro electric development is to be encouraged and stimulated,' with a corresponding effect on the development of the great clectro-chcmlcal and similar industries which are essential to tho Industrial In dependence of the nation." "ADS" WHICH EXCEED FACTS RULED FRAUDS r Even If Purchaser Gets Money's Worth, Way Is Opened- For Prosecution. What coriftlltutes dishonest advertising through the malls waa defined clearly by Him United States Supreme Court in' a docUlon yesterday attornoon. Tho court held In effect that adver tisers, oven thpugh they give purchasers vatuo received for their money, are guilty of fraud if by exaggerated ad vertising propaganda they have led clients to expect more. Oftlupla declare the decision' will pave the way to scores of prosecutions and make possible tho enforcement of a much more stringent Federal supervi sion ot mall advertising. The opinion was announced by Jus tice MoKenna, reversing the District court in southern Florida, which quashed an .Indictment against officials of the New South Farm and Home Company. , The Indictment charged unlawful uso of tho malls In selling ten-acre farms.' Thd Florida court held that If a wir ctmser received his money's worthJcx aggerated propaganda 'was not fraud. Justice MclOrtna took tho position that It was an offense If the article sold did not servo the purpose represented, no matter what the value might be. ,Ia discussing What constituted a criminal offenso under the statuto governing tho uso ot tho malls, Jus tice McKcnna said: "Mero 'puffins' nilyht not bo within its means..
