FRIDAY EVENING AUG. 20.1909.
Even if a husband promises to love and honor his wife, he reserves the right to give bert good casting when he thinks she needs it and to do every? thing but beat her. This new philoso phy of wedded bliss is tbe law laid down hy Municipal Judge Gremmill of Chi? cago. He carries with it the authority for the husband to rail home before sun? up with wbat is technically known as a "beautiful bun" aboard. It invests him with the privilege of threatening to do variooB sorts of unlawful things just so be does not make good his bluff. Bo io Ibe future wives who object to be? ing "doggoned" and "dodblasted" mast pray for fair weather ia the family Gar? den of Eden. The arm of the law ?wont interfere. Sj says Judge (Jem mill. "Tbe law nays that a wife cannot testify against her husband," taid the judge, "except ia cases of desertion or of personal violence. And I wont is ?oe warrants for arrests unless oo such charges. Way, some wives eveo want to have their husbands arrested for swearing at them." This "divine right" of husbands to do everything but spank their wives was elucidated when a year-old bride wanted ber spouse pat in jail because she "believed he wu going to desert ber." Judge Gemmill opined that the belief would have to become a fact before he would set the police on the trail of the husband who was about to err?according to feminine intuition. This recalls to the mind of the writer of this paragraph an occurrence in the mayor's court In this city several years ago when be was reporting the trials in that court The late Mayor Beckham had before bim a case of a man who had struck his wife. After bearing tbe evi? dence of the injured wife tbe mayor quickly turned to the reporter and said, "What do you think should bedone with this man?" The reporter was taken com? pletely by surprise but gathering his wits replied : "Men who strike women should be given the limit," and the mayor acted accordingly. As the re? porter lett the court room an old mao approached bim and said, "Mr. you dont know women; d-if some of them oughtn't to be struck;" and perhaps the old man was right. Ar his homeand laboiatory in Orange, N. J., Thomas A. Edison has now an? nounced that he has perfected his plans for cbtap houses of concrete poured into a single mould, and that the first finished moulds are now being cast. With these be says he will be able to build a modern bouse complete for $1,300 and do the job inside of fourteen days. It will be two stories with a'tic and cellar on a plot 40 by CO feet, leav? ing -pace for small lawn and garden. There wil! be six rooms and bath, stationary washtubs etc., the entire house being cast in one solid piece, in? cluding the fixtures and interior decora? tion. The surface will require no ad? ditional finish except tinting or paper? ing. The minimum price is possible only when the houses are to be built in large numbers. Tbe material lu said to be a mixture of cement, water and crushed granite, which flows freely and evenly to all parts of the moulds. There is also added a certain proportion of clay. A complete set of Ihe moulds will cost |25,000 and the operating plant $15,000 more. ElPOBTS from Panama just made public by the War Department show that the fiscal year ended Jane 30 was the record year for expenditures since thc United Statis took possession of the tone. The monthly average was $2, 700,000, and iu January, 1909, tbe reord month, more than $3,250,000 waa expended. Tbe necessity of increased appropriations will be investigated by the House committee on appropriations which will visit Panama ia ? few weeks. The report shows that the actual ex? penses ap to this time reach $104,177, 884, exclusive of the $00,000,000 paid for the canal. Tbis is already much more than it was at first stated would be the cost of completing the canal. Tm: captain of the Thalia at Ham merfest, telegraphed yesterday tbat Wal ter Wellman >tsrted in his dirigible bal? loon fur tbe North Pole on August 16. Mr. Wellman may or may not have started, but tba' be will never reach the p3le is the opinion of all who know him. Prom Washington. IO-frMepflcrience* of thc Alexandria Gatette.) Washington, Aug. 20. Considerable opposition is being mani? fested by tbe banks of tbe country to tbe sm-gentions of Secretary of the Treas ory McVeigh timi the aire of the American bank notes should be made smallt r. They do not care how ornate the Treasury shall make ita notes and think it is probably a good idea to have them as artistic a* possible. F.at when it comes to -raking a change in the siz? the national ra-ika point ont tbat there are practical otj ctions io tbe way. In the first place ll the Treasury made its notes smaller every national bank in the country would have to make its notes conform. That wonld mean tbat practically all of the 6,900 nation? al banks of the United Sates would have to change tbe plates from which their notes are printed. Each bank that issues notes bas at least three of these plates for denominations of $20, $10 and $5, and some have more. Tbe engraving of tbeae plates cost $75 each and the work haa to be done a', tbe burrau of engraving and printing in thia city. To change all these platea would not only cost each bank quite a sum of money but would take a lot of time. Another objection from a practical standpoint is that in nearly every instance throughout tbe country tbe drawer of the paying teller of a baok ia fitted with partitions just of tbe size- of tbe present currency. Of course a smaller bid wooli go into tbe larger partition bat it is claimed that great in? convenience would remit aud that event? ually it would be necessary to make over the drawers io every bank so that the partitions would conform to the size of tbe bills. A crisis which may involve nearly the whole of Booth America in discord is eipected in the next few days in the boundary quarrel between Peru and Bo? livia, If tbe qaestion is not adjusted in tbat time one or tbe other of tbe country will probably begin aggressive tactics. Tbesitaation is being watched with mach concern in Washington because of the dirastrous results which will almost sure? ly follow io disturbing conditions through? out Sooth America. It is almost im? possible for tbe (J ni ted .Slates to intervene in the cause of peace because of the ex? treme delicace of the diplomatic rela ioos of the countries concerned. In case Bilivla sboald begin hostilities with Peru, Chili is almost certain to league its interests with the former country against its old-time enemy. Ar L'<utine will probably extend its sympa itiy to Peru because of Bolivia's refusal to accept the decision of tbe Argentine president in tbe arbitration of the dispute. Brazil, which is the rival of Argentine in many respects, also bas an interest in the ?deputed territory. Snould opportunity presents itself the United States will try to propose a solution of the problem but io the present state of affairs there soems io be no prospect of an adjustment. The so-called Alaska coal cases which have figured in the controversy between Secretary ol the Interior Ballinger and Chief Forester Pinchot, were the sub j -rt of a statement issued today by ?acting Secretary of the Interior Pierce, who is just back from a two weeks trip to New Eagland. Tbe statement ls as, follows: "Hoon after Secretary dillinger ? sm med ellice, some phase of these <ases came up i(tidally before the department. The secretary called tot me and stated that he had naen called into consultation about these cases before his appointment, and thai be would have nothing whatever to do with them, and directed that all matters relating to them should be i andled entirely by myself and the com? missioner of the general land office. Since tbe secretary assomed office he has had nothing whatever to do with these cases and all matters relating to 'hem bas been handled either directly hy myself or through the general land . ffice." Ia a statement issued today, Henry I". Davis, attorney for Mrs. Sutton in he inquiry as to the death of her son at Annapolis, criticised Judge Advocate Leooard and the members of the court io emphatic language, leaving it to be understood that tbe court knew too little -.bout weighing evidence to be permitted to handle such an Important matter He also accused Major Leonard of fati? ng to liva up to his agreement and thereby bringing about the peculiar tangle which threw Mrs. Sutton into the attitude of prosecuting Adams, Utley, Willing, Osterman and Bevans for the death of brr son. "Unjadicial and unnecessarily harsh language in which the court has seen fit o clothe its conclusions," said Mr. L)avis, in speaking of the decision. He declared be has given out the statement in view of the findings sod opinions of the Sutton court ofirquiry, especially tbe fifth opinion tbat the charges of Mrs. Sutton were unsupported by even a shadow of reason. He took issue with the finding of the court that Sutton was 'killed by a revolver shot from a service Colt revolver, held iu his own right band and fired by himself." Mr. Davit made an analysis of the testimony bear? ing on tbe shooting and declared it was obvious tbat tbe fatal shot was not fired from a Colt's revolver.

I Today'8 Telegraphic Newe Coodlthni In Pittsburg. Pitttbnrg, Aug. 20?With tbe-pos sibility of a decision by tbs court on the petition for arbitration filed by their] attorneyt, the atrikera of the Pressed Steel Oar Company poured out upon tbe j streets of Schoenville early today, and gathered on corners discussing the chances of bringing the loog struggle to an end. The riotiog wbich wu resumed last night was almost a repetition of the troubles Wednesday night. Street cars were held ap, men beaten and clubbed and one man probably fatally ir jared, while volley after volley was fired at the steamer P. M. I'fiel. Maoy ot the abott strock the steamer, but oo one waa injured. Late in the tveoiog the strikers found s mao, wbom they alleged to be an agent of tbe com? pany, mixing among them. More than 25 strikers attacked bim. He was stab? bed in the neck with a dirk while another striker beat him over the head with a brick. A squsd of the con? stabulary came to the mao's reseat and be was hurried ioside the company's stockade. As the strikers are now mak? ing most of tbe trouble at night, a giant search light has been placed ou one of I the compsoy's buildings while barrels of water are placed at different points | around tbe walls, it being evident that tbe camp fears an attempt may be made to fire the shops.

Wolff, a baodsomely dressed, well-edu | cated mao ol 25, is held at police head? quarters today oo tbe charge of having j forged a check for *5,000, wbich he cashed at the Park Nttional Bank. Ac? cording to the police, #4,481 was found io Wolff's pockets wheo be was placed under arrest. The ttory tbe police tay Wold told them is a remarkable one. His lather was formerly a very wealthy silk manu facturer in Germany. He decided that an immense fortune could be made hy raising silk in Mexico, so he turmd hs business into money and went to M x ico, where he planted a mulberry fara jun! began the culture of silk worms. The venture was a failure aod be losl everything. Young Wolli came to New York, where hia intimate knowledge of tbe silk industry got for bim the position of private aecrelary to Henry Schoelwiend, general manager of tbe Susquehanna Ik Company. Yesterday, according lo the police, h* received a Iel t-r from his mother. In Mexico City, declaring she and his father were In actual nant. Wolff, it said, then secured some numbered checks of the silk firm by which be waa rmployed, forged one for $5,000 and had it cashed immediately, sending |500 by registered letter to bis mother io Mexico City. Tbis letter has beeo or? dered intercepted. It ?as Wolff's ioteotion to have his mother and father ko to Germany, where he intended j lining them. Japan Domineering China. Loodon, Aug. 20.?-Japan's domi? nation over China, almost equal to her control of Korea, is believed by many Eoglish diplomata to be tbe probable result of the recent defeat the Peking government suffered from Tokio In the exchange of notes over the Antung-Muk den Railway. Officials of the British foreign office say tbeie bas already beeo uokistakeable evidence of a tightening of Japanese in? fluence in Peking. The Antang Mukden dispute illus? trates the Japanese method of accom? plishing results. After waiting what they considered a reasonable time for Cotna to authorize the Improvement of tbe line, tbe Japanese peremptorily demanded it. China declined, where open Tokio notified Peking that the road would be rebuilt anyway, and ac? tually began wcrk on it. At tnis Chi in meekly yielded aod Japan ius'antly sent a courteous Dote to Peking thanking the government there for its prompt and satisfactory reply to the Mikado's re? quest. No sympathy whatever is felt here for tbe present rectionary Chinese regime. The threatened reduction of the great Chinese empire to a position of virtual vassalage to (be Ja, aaese is considered here of the most serious consequence to the world. In apite of the Anglo-Japanese treaty, there hat been much suspicion felt of the Mikado lately aod it is unofficially stated from the foreign office tbat King Edward's government did oothing to back Dp the Mikado in the Aotoog Mukden railway matter.

Professor Stroempel says Mr. Harri man haa been restored '.o 'comparative health," which thould remain aatiafac tory "if he lives tbe most moderate life henceforth. A resumption of his stren? uous activity of tbe patt will tarely bring a relapse." Three courses ol treatment were out* lioed by Professor Stiuempel, which Mr. Hsrrimao was cautioned to follow closely. Pira', Mr. Harriman most take the "rest cure."
