For an hour she had stood directly In front of the club stand on Fifth avenue gazing steadfastly at( Gover nor Whitman. Now and then she would turn to the stalwart youths in khaki marching by and a wistful, longing look came to her tired eyes. Initials on Hearing;. Finally she reached the doors of the club, and In a quavering voice In sisted upon seeing Governor Whit man. Questioned by Inspector Dwyer, the little woman said she wanted to aee the Governor to make one last plea for the life of her only son, whose execution In the electric chair for murder was to take place before sunrise today and did. The other mothers could take pride In the way their sons would meet their end, and thus their grief be mitigated. For her there could be only shame. She was Mrs. Joseph Mulholland, and yesterday was her fiftieth birth day. Her story, so dramatic and pltl . fill, moved Inspector Dwyer to send word to the governor. eGorge T. Wil son, In the governor's party, came to the door and heard the sad-hearted woman's plea. As gently as he could he told Mrs. Mulholland to go to the St. Regis Hotel and await the return of the governor from the review of , the guard troops. Appeals Axald Laughter.

HOUSE READY FOR Fl HTONBONDAND NSURANGE BILLS The Administration plans for action next week on either the bond and cer tificate bill or the soldiers' arid sailors' Insurance measure. The Bouse today settled back Into the Idleness which It has enjoyed for months. Republicans and Democrats of the Ways and Means Committee having settled their differences on the big bond and certificate measure as far as possible in committee, they prepared to report the bill to the House, and then sit back and sharpen their weap ons for the coming clash on the floor. Under the agreement obtained yester day by the minority, the bill will be reported to the House tomorrow, and taken up for general debate next Tuesday. Opponents of the Insurance measure, led by Congressman Parker of New Jersey, are busy today preparing a minority report urging the defeat of the measure. While Parker alone voted against re porting the measure to the House fa vorably, it Is known that some other members of the Interstate and For eign Commerce Committee voted with the majority In the committee only because they believed opposition there would accomplish little or nothing. While it Is generally conceded that the bond and certificate bill will pass the House, no matter how hard It Is fought, there is serious doubt of the success of the Insurance measure. Members opposed to the plan ex pressed confidence today that if they failed to kill the bill In the House, the Senate could be counted on to de feat It. 13 HIrsli's Close Every Saturday at 6 o'clock llDZIlVllililllllllliltlJJiVSilllltllllllllltKnfll MtlVl1IHIIIIMMIMMna?nitlM1HIII1llllRWtfgJI v Sharp Reductions on White Footwear Just the Thing for Wear on That Labor Day Outing Women's and Growing Girls'5 C Women s and Growing Girls' WHITE Pumps and Oxfords $1-45 1 Pair A superb and .arjre show Inc. embracing such models as White Canvas Sport English Oxfords, lace and blucher stlea; White Sea Island Duck Seamless Pumps, White Canvas Colonials.
