Tennessee Governor Ad dresses Convention at Washington Washington, December'10.— Malcolm H. Patterson, former governor of Tennes see, who has become an advocate of na iion-wkie prohibition, spoke this morn ing in the interest of amending the con stitution of the United States to prohibit the manufacture and sale of liquor in * the United States “Wo know,” said the ex-governor, ‘‘that the use of liquor fills no human want; that the habit of indulgence is always! acquired: that abstinence alone is the guarantee of safety, and that the de struction of -liquor itself is the only guar- i antee of abstinence. ‘'The manufacture ami salt* of liquor is j i»ow forbidden in nine states of the union, either by general legislation or consti tutional amendment of the organic law, land in others it will be forbidden as soon as the people have opportunity to vote ©n the question and have their will re corded in proper form. “The contests in the towns and cities fc-nd states have largely diminished the evils, but .they have sometimes failed iti full results owing to the case with which liquor is received into dry territory from other stales under the protection of the federal government, and the time has now come when the friends of temperance fortified, strengthi-ncd and marshaled all over the United States demand that this intolerable condition shall cease. “Civilization and Christianity now de mand another constitutional amendment to be presented to the states for their rati fication or rejection, that the voice and govereignty of the people as the first and Ultimate source of ppwer may be exercised In a decisive and supreme test to d»*ter- 1 mine whether or not the manufacture and ! wile of Intoxicating drinks exists with j or without the ■ onsent of government.” !

Mahogany Coffins and Funeral Services Over Dogs is “Wishy-Washy” Sentimentality, Declares Beard Washington, December 10.—Vivisection oj animals as a method of research was denounced as wrong and misleading today by Dr. Richard Cowen of the Royal Col lege of Surgeons, London, in an address before the International Anti-Vivisection and Animal Protection congress. “This mutilation and torture,” Dr. Cowen said, “had led many earnest men along the wrong road of research. For more than a quarter of a century J have practiced surgery. During that time 1 have performed some thousands of oper atlons. yet cannot recall a single instance in which 1 owed anything to public reports of vivisection experiments.” Dr. Cowen declared that in an effort , to find the cause of cancer 345,000 ani inals have been tortured hy a cancer re search society In the past two years, with no resulting discovery, if the same time which was used along the "blood-stained paths of animal vivisection." he- added, "had been spent in studying the disease from a clinical point, and its natural his tory in man, it would not be necessary now to announce the disease incurable save by the* knife." Daniel C. Heard, president of the Camp fire Club of America, said he was a great lover of animals and was in hearty sym pathy with the anti-vivisection movement, although he had no use for the "wishy washy sentimentality which led to the purchase of satirj lined mahogany coffins for dogs and funeral services over their bodies." Dr. Charles \V. Dulles of Philadelphia attacked the Pasteur treatment for hydro phobia as "injurious and responsible for many deaths." a vigorous campaign during the past fe\V months in the interest of their candidacy. Indications point to the selection of Mr. Henderson as the standard bearer of the local option forces, though this report lacks confirmation. Just how snon the local optionists will concentrate their forces there, is no pres ent way of determining, but it is likely that it will be done within the next few weeks. There is a probability that the selection of the local option standard bearer will not he announced until after j the meeting ‘of the executive comimtteo. j though it is believed that the leaders of that cause have already settled upon their candidate, and that at the proper time they will wage a strong light in his be half political developments ore expected *o come thick and fast during the next l'ew weeks. The announcement of Chairman Tyler Goodwyn of the state democratic executive committee* that the committee will meet January 7 to select the date of ♦he spring primary, or primaries, to de t. rnjfne the question of two senatorial 1 allots, and to pass upon many other questions of importance lo the state f*t large, has caused considerable speculation in certain political circles and Indications are that the intervening time between now and the meeting of the committee will he replete with many Interesting develop me tits. Senatorial Situation Regarding the senatorial situation, the governor declared that he was still using his efforts to have Mr. Glass' appoint ment confirmed, stating that ho had writ* ten to a number of the governors of the union asking them to lend their influence iu his appointee’s -behalf. The chief ex ecutive said that He had heard from a dAz»-n or more of the governors and that with the exception of Governor Cokpilt of Texas they had all ex prosed tin* opinion that lie Imd the power to appoint. It is probable that certain of tin* gover nor's friends among ilie chief executives of a dozen or more states will write to their senators and ask them to vote in Mr. Glass’s behalf.
