Edltor of The Tlmes-Dispatch: i Sir,?The wlse and patrlotic cltizen I recognlzes the great human value and 1 the lmportance of birds, and he pro j tests against their destructlon, because i ho sees that for the future welfare (nf the natlon we inust have cohserva j tion of h .r resources, and rlght the spirit i of wastefulness and commercial!-m i which Jn sacrillcing for gain man's ! hcrltagc In miturc. It ls very important that tho clty, ' as well a? country, should be glvlng thought to protect nnd bulld up the ilepleted ranks of our wlnged army, who are flRhtlng the Inscct foes, mak? lng agrlculture nnd forestry posslble and life Itself endiirabl--. Without blrd.*. ln a short span of years thls globe would be unlnhabitable, so tho sclentlsts toll us. Their destructlon is almost invarlably followed by an immedlnte Increaso of Ir.Jurlous losects. ln the West, when owls and hawks are killed out, crops falj becauso of Hcld inlcc. But what can a clty do? Thero are no birds horo to protect, only thc Eng? llsh sparrow, and though he has some attractlve fjualltles. he la a public nulsancc, and hls use is yet to be proven. As a matler of fact there are other birds In your yards, knock ing at your doors, and when we de IMroy their enemy, the Engllsh spar row," our trees will be tllled wlth our cld-tihic feathercd frlends. Thero has never yet been suggested or carrled oitt by man an entlrely sat I isfactory plan for the oxtermlnatlon !cf the l.ngll.li sparrow, though he has I had a bad namo for yerrs and goes on multiplylng. But nature is beginning a still, qulet, mysterious warfare ' ugntnst thla blatant chatterer in our j vines, and there are many ways to as Iwisl her. Ilawks are often seen soar ; ing over the city, and taking a blrd'a I eye view of tho food conditlon. A i hawk cume down on a bu..y llttle (lock ! of sparrows in the bualest part of Grace Strect and carrled one away in : hls claws. If, on soine-uftt-rnoon about dusk. one watch the tops of the oldest trccs. as you stroll, one will see fllttlng ! around a large blrd, or . Itting high j ch a branch, asalnst the sky. one will ! see a puffy ball of fcathers. about thc j size of a pigeon. He turns hls head, - ? lifls his ears. prc.ns hls fcathers. and '. ts not dl.uurbed by automobile or pats 1 lr.K trolley. At least thls ls tho way a ! screech own behaved nt Flrst and i j Franklln StrcetH a week ago. Hc is i our smallest owl, and ai hc nests in Marcli, he ha3 now on his hands a hcarty famlly of six or seven clamor ing for meat, and meat ls getting to be a problcm wlth the owl, too, so he comes to the clty to (ind here an un touched supply and no demand. Thc Engllsh sparrow ls a genlus at mak? lng close jihaves, taking chances with the dangers of the streot, such as I | horses' feet, wheels and rubber tlres, I hut belng clty-brcd for gcneratlons. he : knows not the ways of the wild, nor how to escape the talons of a blrd of prey. The comlng of owls to the clty ls ? nature's i.ttcmpt io balance up matten. wlth thc Engllsh sparrow, and lt may ' bc thc solution of the problem. They ?should bo encouraged and domesti catcd. lf posslble. Ilawks are readily tamed, and why not put into up-to-date fashionable use the quaint old custom of falconry? Wlth the passlng of the Engllsh sparrow, there will be a return of the nativo birds to the streets and parks. 1 This seems far away and "up in the ' air." wlth our lack of shrubs, ever greens and thickets, but some of the birds that love the tree-tops and dwelllngs are already wlth us. Thls is a hopeful sign. Cardinals were seen in the mngnolias last wlnter, a wren sings through the year in a yard near 1 the Jefferson Hotel, and nearby one summer, an oriole is said to have reared a famlly ln a swinging cradle ln a tree-top. In a week or two tho sweet notes of vlreos and yellow warblers may be heard in the streets. Often at night can be heard the kllldee slnging a glad song as he Ieaves tho city behlnd him. The wrens are fully established in ; town. Last year, the boys of the I Rlchmond public schools made Ideal ' nestlr.g boxes, which they presented to the Audubon Soclety, and they were placed in yards, and several were oc cupled by wrens. Tho boy_ wanted to have them tn the parks and watch results, but lt was found that this . could only be dono with the consent i; of the authorltles, and as thls meant t delay, and tho wrens wero lmpatlent -! to,be settled. lt was glven up. For a i'. bird can bulld In the Capitol Square II only by carrylng hls "bill" through the Leglslature, and probably would have to submlt hls plans to a commit? tee from the Sonato. In Ccntral Park, New York, there are a great many birds, and one obsorver oh the Boston Common recognlzed ", seventy-nlno specles. The people ot 5 the North have already suffered so from insect pests that they aro study ing how to attract birds, and settlng aslde wood lands as reserves for nest Ing time. ? ???.*..

It Is a wondor that the vlrlle, robust manhood of the Ninth District has not beforo thla boen stlrred by a senae of self-.o_p_ ct, antl to detcrmlned, concerte.1 action to wrest the posltlon of Congrcssman from ihe lnflucncos which have con trollcd ther? since the death of Gen? oral James A.

The Slemps not only op po>ed hls nomlnatlon. but hls -loction, and dld what they could to defi'at hlm, but fallcd ln thls pa-ty treacnery. OouotlesH thls cplsode In the .lolltlcal hlstory of the Ninth Dl.trlist wlll not bo loivrutton by the Irlend. cf that chivalri.ua nnd dlstlng'il.-diod old sol dlo.. whon the ballots aro ca.-.l in the ne.\t electlon, and that Bascom S-lonip wlll feel the- effects of a just nnd rlghte*ouB rotrlbutlon when the result ls known ln November next. Henry C. Stuart ls one of tho flrst men in Virginia, respe-ted and con Hded in by both Republlcans and Pcrn ocrats. His large and h.noralilo ex porlotico as a member of the lato Con stl'utional Convention and also of the Corporation Commlsslon; hW splendid biifincss capacltles. which navo brought hlm great wealth; hls clcan character. both private and pub'lc. and his univcrsal popularity. tnakc lt al mo_t certaln that he wl'l be the ln strument by which Bascom Slemp wlll be retlred from his oflicial posltlon. From thc sentlment manlfested ln the convontlon that npmlnaited Mr. Stuart, and thc enthusiasm which ac ccntuated the proceedlngs and result, the promlse and pledge were glven that the Democrats of tho NIntn Dis? trict mean to organize and work for success. If they do so. they wlll elect Mr. Stuart and thus glve to the peo? ple there a real and true representa? tlve ln the Congress of. thc united States, of whom they-may feel proud. presentlng a consplcuous contrast to that oflicial "ple hunter" who now mlsrepresents the better element of hls own party. lf what ls glven out from the Ninth District ls any way near the truth, many Republlcans wlll elther vote for Stuart or be consplcu? ous by their absence from thc polls on the day of election. Thls ls not llkely, as thc people of the Southwest are not affllcted wlth moral tlm.dlty. and aro not afrald to do what they thlnk rlght when the test comes. espo clallv when the good name of thelr district Is lnvolvcd. Party loyalty and conslstency are commendable traits when Important questions and pollcles relatlng to public affalrs are to be passed upon, but when Important trusts conflded to a representatlve are subor dlnatcd to dlckers and plots of poll tlclans. there Is no moral or polltlcal obllgation for any one to stultlfy hlm s*>lf by suppresslng hls honest con vletion's to please the plotters and scliemers. "Be sure your slns wlll find vou out" is as true in politics as it is in other domains of human action, and to those who are now cheek by lowl wlth Slemp ln hls acts and rnove ments, the day ot rotrlbutlon wlll come, If lt Is not already near, when the meetings and dellberatlons of cabals to devlse means to avert the bolts of justice will be merely as "sounding brass and tlnkllng cymbal." Thc vell wlll be lifted and it will be seen that you cannot make a "silk purse out of a sow's ear." VERITAS. Staunton, Va., March 7, 1910. I.ociil Optlon nnd Oemocrncy.

CASTORIA For Iufaats aud Childrcn. The Kind You Havi Always Bought Bears tb* Blgatit ur ? of THE PENNSYLVANIA STATION IN NEW YORK CITY The new station of the Pennsylvania Rallroad in New Yorlc City, to be known as the "Pennsylvania Station," will add a great deal to the comfort and conventence of the traveHng public. . It is located in thc centre of the hotel, shopping, and theatrical district, fronting on Seventh Avenue from Thirty-first to Thirty-third Street, and running back to another front on Eighth Avenue, covering the entire aw_a of two city blocks. It is one block from the busiest spot in the central part of New York City?the intersection of Broadway, Sixth Avenue and the crosstown streets, locally known as Herald Square. Fifth Avenue, with its big hoteJs, its handsome mansions, its, clubs and fine stores is only two blocks from its front. Lines of transportation ra diate in every direction. It haa entrances and exits on all four of its ddes. The station is served by all through trains of the Penn? sylvania Railroad that ar? rive at or depart from New York, so that a p?enger on a through car from the South or West is delivered in the heart bf New York without any change whatever. This it affected by a new eactension which-leaves the main line at Harrison, east of Newark, N. J.- and crossea the meadows to Bergen Hill, opposite Thirty-second Street, New York. Here the tracks enter twin tutUMla cut out of the solid rock, and thence ran into twin steel tubes under the Hudaon Rivar to New York and thence by subway to the station. The empty trains are contlnued under the dty, and by tubes under East River to the terminal yards on Long Island, Where the caraamatoied, and the trains made up. There are twenty-one passenger tracks in the station. At Harrison the steam locomotrves are detaehed from the trains and powerfal efoctrtc locomotires, which draw them through_tunnefa and tubes, are substituted. No power but electricity is emp.oyed in the tubes and tunnels. If a passenger wishes to go downtown direct, ha can change at Harrisoo and reach Cott landt Street and the financial district in a few minutes by means of the tubes of the Hudaon and Manhattan Railroad System. These great and comprehensive improvemehts in the terminal faciltttes of the _tamqr_ vania Railroad in New York cannot fail to command the appreciation of the public. Due notice of the opening of the new station and the operation of traina to .md from it will be given. WILL MAKE ANOTHER EFFORT TO SCALE ICE-CLAD MT. M'KINLEY [Speclal to TheTlmes-Dlspatoh.l New York, March 13.?One of the most important sclentiflc expedlt.ons of the year will start from! Seattle on May 1, when a party of experienced mountaln cllmbers ana sclentlsts. headed by Professor Herschel C. Par? ker, of Columbla Unlverslty, will set out for the Alaskan wilderriess, whero they will attempt to reach tho sun.mit of Mt. MoKinloy?that defiant. ice-elad monster that has baffled tbo efforts of sclentlsts and explorefs. for the past decade. The expcdltlon wlll be conducted by the American Geographlcal Soclety, and tho elaborate and novel arrangemonts that have been mado should lnsuro its success. All tho experlenco gained in tho many previous attempts to scalo thls rugged peak has been iitlllzed m plannlng the forthcomlng assault, and the men who wlll lead the expedltlon have had years of experlence In tho Alps and tho Rockles. ? . Professor Parkor, who wlll lead the party, has already scaled four of the most dlfflcult peaks ln the Canadian Rocklos, bosldes -having clambered uP and down tho peaks of tho Alps for years. In 1906 he accompanled Dr. Cook on tho lattor's now famous ex? pcdltlon to Mt, McKlnley. The experl? ence gained on that expedltlon ; has proved invaluablo In outlinlng tho do talls of the forthcomlng trlp. Grave doubts have always exlstod ln'Profes? sor Parker's mlnd as to the truth of Cook's clalm to having reachod the summtt. and ho Intends to satisfy hlm? self ln regard to the matter on thta fono of Professor Parker's ohlef lleu tenants will be Bollmoro Browne, the artist. who was a member of the Parkor-Cook oxpcdltlon. and who ts also nn expert mountaln olimher. J. H Kunz. of Stcvens Institute; H. L. Tucker, of tho Appalachtan Club, of Boston, and Waldemar Orassl. or Co? lumbla, are othor prom'tnont mombors of tho party. ' ... One of the principal features of tho forthcomlng trlp* wlll be tho uso vf the motorboat as a means of trans? portatlon'. Pack-.horses w1U bo ta boood. as past experlence has taught that thoy are a hlndranco, an.d tho party wlll make thelr way through tho ]50 mlles of wlldornoas to wlthln strlklng dlstanco of tho baso of tho mountaln by means of a speolally con. struotcd motorboat. In tho'Cook ex? pcdltlon of 1006 a motorboat was u3od, nut tho pTtrty reached the headwaters of the rlver too late tn the season to attempt to clitub the mountaln. After they had returned to thelr camp, how? ever, Cook set out in company wlth two guldes, a.nd roturned with a tale that he had reached tho top. In outllnlng hls plans for the forth comln_g expedltlon to a ropresontattve of the Internatlonal Nows Service, Pro fe.sor Parker said: "Tho main party will leavo Seattle aboiit May 1. and procood diroct to Cook's Inlot?eastost way to reach tho baso ot tho mountaln is from the south?and as soon as we'roach tho head of Cook's Inlet wo shnll embarit ln a motorboat nnd sall up the Sushltna Rlvor to the Chulitna. and then up tho lattor stream as far as lt Ia navignble. Several largo glaciers (low from Mt. McKlnley toward tho Chulitna, nnd tha mombers of tho party wlll load tha supplies on thelr backs and make thelr way across the glaciers to a favorable spot whero a baso camp can bo estab llshea. "From the baso camp wo Intend to devoto ourselves to a complete and e\haustlvo study of the mountaln sys tom frora tho aouthcrn base of Mt.
