as quarters for the servants. The at

The rooms are furnished in exquisite
taste and costly paintings and works
of art adorn the halls, living rooms
and library. "When one thinks of the
price of a tiny piece of jade it is al
most amasing to see lamps with pe
destals of the precious stone and the
wonderful collection of jade and the
wonderful ornaments and carvings
which Mr. Oyster possessed. It is said
that the Corcoran Art Gallery in
Washington has offered more than
$146.000 for the paintings alone.

Bureau Employes Say Proposals
Signed by Other Workers
Were Veiled.
Ten thousand working hours were
devoted to discussion by the j3ureau
of Census employee this morning, dur
ing and after a vigorous protest meet
ing at which employee emphatically
told representatives to convey to
Chief Clerk Libbey, of the Depart
ment of Commerce the information
that they were not in sympathy with
the eight-hour day.
The proposal to change the working
day of the Bureau of Forign and Do
mestle Commerce. another branch of
the Commerce Department. from seven
and one-half hours to eight, which
had been reported as meeting np
proval of ninety-flve per cent of the
130 employed in that bureau, wAs
greeted with open disanproval when
proposed to 4ensus wnrkers.
The vote taken at a meeting this
morning at which the greater portion
of the 2,3M0 empl.'yes were present
was almost unanimously against such
a plan. Workers expressed a willing
ness to work overtim. when neces
sary. but declared that with the pres
ent temporary emplnyee still on the
payroll extra time was unnecessary.
The main .ensus work being eonm

the compli.inn of special reports,
many requesed by ('nngresmian, and
workers der'ared these reqtu-sts

They derlarert that the proposal
submitted to other workers in the
department yesterday was so veiled
as to mislead those who stgned it.
They stated they were always willing
to help out, but that they did not
propose t leave the litht-hiour sys
tem rehedule beeome permanent.
A committee of the census workers
has been appotnted and these repre
sentatives will forward to Clerk
Libbey a repnrt on th'. attitude of tho
workers on the 'luestion of extra time.
Discussion over what they termie
a "misreprese~ntation" which hart
been "slipped over" on workers in
the other branch of the department
consumed the greator part of the
morning at the Census ltureauJ. JDur

consumed hurriedly to permit wordy
arguments on the subject.

Says Sinn Fein Is a Pest in
United States, and in
Ireland, Too.
LONDON. June 14.-The Morn
ing Post today printed the follow
ing "farewell message" from Rear
Admiral W. S. Sims, U. S. N.,
who has been recalled:
"I have always been frank with
my countrymen in respect to the
Irish Sinn Fein conspiracy, which
is as great a pest in America as it
is in Ireland. We confidently ap
peal to all good 100 per cet,
Americap.1'a see to it that the
bad IrW1 who curse every land in
which they set foot are not per
mitted to work their wicked will."
Admiral Sims had previously re
futel to give a farewell message to
the Daily Mail on the ground that lie
was "under indictment and that it
would be inadvisable for him to say
anything more on English sol.'
A dispatch from Dublin quoted the
Freeman's Journal as saying:
"Admiral Sims now regrets his in
discreet and offensive outburst in
Iondon last Tuesday. When he ap
pears before the American Secretary
of the Navy he probably will claim
I that he was misrepresented, and tis
an entirely wrong interpretation was
I placed upon his words."
The l'aily Express New York cable
gram says that the Sims incident has
proved a boomerang and that the
American sympathizers with the Sinn
Fein are scared over the possibilities.
Sinn Fein agitations in the United
'States, according to the Daily Ex
press correspondent at New York,
suddenly have been halted.
"The same sort of language Ben
edict Arnold Is credited with." de
clared Rossa F. Downing. State pres
ident of the American Association fot
the Reengnition of the Irish Repub
lic, when he was told of this dispatch
by the Times this, morning.
"There were hundreds of pro-Brit.
ish subjects who undoubtedly use4
almost these same words in condemn
ing the 100 per cent Americans who
fought at Lexington.
"The rermarks of Sims have had
the usual effect of helping rather
than hurtingi the cause of the Irish
Republic. Many newspapers that
have previously been against the
Irish have joined in condemning him.
Whether he is removed or npt. is of
no interest to the 1rish. That's hia
Iworry-- and the worry of the United
States Government."
There were evidences today that
friends of Sims are rallying to suippoirt
him in his latest difficulties with tV'
Navy Department. growing out of the
admiral's "jacka~ss" speech in London.
WVhile expressions of indignation
over the admiral's utterances contin
ued to he heard in congressional quar
ters, the Army and Navy Register
came out today wIth a strong defense
of the lor'iacious admiral.
After setting forth that it is the~
a~pparent determination of the present
Administration to "inherit the ani
mosity" of the last regime agains.t
Admiral hims, a leading editorial
"The whole affair will look to many
people as a truckling to voters of a
class, for, brought down to the real
significance and pith, of what he said.
It must he acknowledged that Rtear
Admiral Sims. despite the loosely con
structed p'hreseology, as transmitted
in the cabled report, and of which that
officer is imaginably capable, said no
more than. or nearly as much as, was
entirely justified by the conduct of
the particular people to which he was
applying the epithets.
"If Mr. Denby was looking for an
opportunity to be amazed he might
very well have transferred his emo
tions to the ignoble inci-lent of the
world war that found British subjects
in secret allisance with t1ie Gerimans.
