[Special to The Times-Dispatch ] ! Washington, August ?;.?i reasure is I being brought to bear on the Senate to bi t favorably on the arbitration trea? ties recently slgnen between the United States and Great Britain and the United States and Prance. The only hitch apparently at the preset t time is the fear of the Senate that some of its treaty-making preroga? tives may be endangered by the new conventions This is denied by Secre? tary of State Knox. "While the scope of the treaties just signed." he declared to-night, "has been enlarged to Include questions of vita'. Interest and national honor, ex? cepted In the arbitration trentlos now) in force with France and Great Brit? ain, the relations of the Senate to the arbitration proceedings remains the s.irne as in the treaties now in force as will appear from the texts."

National Association to Send Out Tons of Literature in New Propaganda. MANY MARRIAGES ERROR1 -, I Real Causes Cited as Placing Any Separation Above Im? proper Wedlock. Moundsvllle. W. Va., August 6.?That any kind of divorce Is better than a j bad marriuge Is one of the tenets ofj the recently-formed National Divorce] Reform Association, of which Attorney IS. De Forost Leach, of this city, the author and lecturer, who probably has given the subject more study and thought any any other man in the world, is president. Under his direction a great educational campaign will be conducted by spreading broadcast through the country tons of literature. An advisory board made up of one member from each State 18 to be named to make a study of social con? ditions in his own State and gather data to be used as a busls for uniform i divorce luws In the States. The association is the outgrowth of! the National Congress on Uniform Di? vorce Laws, which met in Washington j and Philadelphia n 1906, when, ac? cording to President Loach, under the guise of securing uniform divorce leg- j Islatlon certain Interests secured ihej adoption of a recommendation which sought only to Increase the difficulties of securing divorce in States having', lenient lnws. Mr, Leach insists that the enactment of uniform divorce laws without well-established data concern-' ing divorce causation was worse than foolish. ] "Often." said Mr. I.each, "a lawyer is consulted about the qu'okcst and i euslest way to dissolve the matr'- I monlal alliance which has become in- j tolerable, regardless of the comrnls sion of statutory offenses. Even when; an offense has been committed there| Is always another reason. Drastic Laws Heepen Evtl. "To test these views. I sent out S.onn letters to physicians throughout the [ t.'nlted Stales, asking fcr opinions on several phases of the divorce question, four.dofi on their experience as prac? ticing physicians Ore of the queries was: " 'What are (he actual primary causes for divorce? Court reeorc!3i show Infidelity, desertion, etc., but are these primary or secondary causes " "Eighty-nine per cent, nf the physi? cians who replied were unanimous in saying that Infidelity, desertion, etc.. are not the primary causes for di? vorce, hui that the real causes may be generally expressed as being 'Im? proper marriage and unnatural marital conditions." "Many people, either from religious prejudice or pure shallowness, think that when they urge drastic or re? strictive legislation in divorce matters they are working toward morality, when. In fact, they are usually doing exactly the opposite. There Is no! virtue In Bush legislation, and may be much harm, for divorces cannot pos? sibly he conducive of more Immorality and scandal than drastic legislation has proven Itself to he. Then. too. any klrd of divorce is better thin a had marriage" RUSH CANAL FORTIFICATION Prospect Is Thut Work Will Be Com -plctcil Within n Year. Washington, August C.?The formi 1- | able task of fortifying the l-sn.tmn Canal is almost certain to progress with a rapidity without prj.'?dent in the construction of fortltieations. > r/ officers just returned from the isthmus are immensely pleased by the pros? pect of the work's completion with'n a year if Congress provides the neces? sary funds. This result Is expected through the employment of the vast army of skilled labor and the mechani? cal resources which Colonel Goethals h?s got together to build the canal. The 10,000 tons of cement construc? tion required for a singie fortress ml^ht in the ordinary course employ contractors a year or more. Yet tho canal builders would think nothing of moving that quantity of material and putting it in place in & few days. Al? ready Colonel Goethals has bogun the cc.nstruction.

August S.-r-One of the things noticed by nearly all the visi? tors to the Ursl Universal Races Con? gress just held at the University ofl London In South Kensington was the Dtimber and ability of the delegates from the United States The speeches made by the various Americans made a great Impression on the congress, in spite of the fact that the addresses by all speakers were above the mediocre. And it was not forgotten either that to a prominent United States citizen, Dr. Felix Adler, the credit is due for the original conception of the Idea of such a gathering. "The Fundamental Principle of lnter-Itacial Ethics, and Some Practical Applications of It" was the title of Dr. Adler's address to the assembled congress, and, in addition, his pronouncements at separate meet? ings of Ethical Society t delegates to the congress were thought highly of. Dr. Gilbert Heid, a New Yorker, who has spent thirty years In Shang? hai, China, made a fiery extempore speech in the early part of the second session, which came like a veritable bombshell to his hearers. He asserted that Americas and Europe's attitude toward China will lore- China to arm herself In earnest, and the result will j be inevitable Armageddon. Fred C, Croxton, of Washington, cx- j pert at the Bureau of Labor, and Pro- . fessor W. .Ictt La nek contributed a I paper on "Wages and H?rnig ration" during the time allotted for t >e dis? cussion of special problems In Inter- | racial economics. David Lubtn. United States delegate to the lilt ir iatlonal Institute of Agriculture in Italy, gave an account of the work of that Insti? tution. Mrs. Edwin Meid, of Boaion, I received an ?v?tlc?i when s'.t.; tlollv- | ered her speech dealing with th3 alms: of the American School l\>a-;4 League , nnd its activities at 111* proeont time.' A considerable number of prominent j English educators who heard Mrs. \ Mead's address had lntervlu-vg wl'h 1 her "n the subject at the con- : islon j of the congress. evldv.Ui>' for the pur- i pose of trying to arrange a similar *r- ? ganlzation In this country. Perhaps the two m>st illuminating contributions to the discussion on the [ color question were thoso of Dr. W. E B. DuBols. a negro, late professor of history and political c-jnomv In At? lanta University, and Charles Alexan? der Eastman, M. D., an Indian, of Am herst, Mass. The closing speeches of the proceed? ings were delivered hv two Americans, Louis P. Lochner, of the University 'of Wisconsin, and Edwin D. Mead, of Boston. "The Cosmopolitan Club Move? ment" was Mr. Lochner's subject, and he Is well qualified to deal with it, as he Is the general secretary of the! .Association of Cosmopolitan Clubs Mr. Mead's paper dealt with "Interna ALLEGED BANDIT IS CAPTURED Salt Lake City.

August fi.?What coun? ty officers believe to be a plot for tho wholesale poisoning of children has [ been unearthed at Concord, In Callo , way county, and as a result two men I and a woman were arrested there to. day by order of the prosecuting at ; torney and brought lo Fulton to bo ! arraigned. The persons arrested are j Lee Boyd. a farmer, his wife, Mrs. Anna Boyd, and JeiTor.-.on Woods, a horse dealer. The children whose lives were en? dangered belong to families whose < members tstihed In a alandor suit recently brought by Mrs. Boyd aga'nst ' Dr. W. B. Ellis, a physician of Con i cord. Mrs. Boyd asked $16.000 dam [ ages, alleging that Dr. Ellis had de? famed her character. The Jury brought In a verdict for the defendant. Tho first alleged attempt on the lives of the children was made several ' weeks ago when a package of chewing gum wan found in the yard of Ed? ward McPheeters, a nephew of Judge ; Robert McPheeters, of Fulton county. ' Less than a week ago another pack? age of gum was placed near tho gato of the McPheeters home. A three-year old child of the family was detected in the act of putting a piece of the gum in Its mouth when an older mem? ber of the family Interfered. The gum was sent to a chemist, who discovered thut It was sprinkled profusely with strychnine. Twice since then pack? ages of gum have been placed near the McPheetera's home and each of Ihem was found to contain strychnine. After the second paokage of gum was found the McPheetera's homo was I watched. The placing of the gum on the premise.s of people In the vlclnty of Concord has become frequent tho last few days, and at least three more families appear to have been included In the poisoning plot. All the gum has been found and has been preserved and will be examined by a chemist. ? All the families on whose premises the poisoned gum has been placed have small children. To-night bond was fixed at $1,000 for Mrs. Boyd, and $2,000 each for Boyd and Woods. All gave ball No preliminary hearing will be held, and the -;ase will be docketed for tho September term of court. OF "EASY MONEY" U. S. Attorney Wise Could Pick Up Fortunes If He Would. BRIBES ARE PLENTIFUL I Would Be Required Only to Ad? vise Fines Instead of New York. August 6.?Two years and four months ago Henry A. Wise j was appointed United Status Dlslri' t Attorney for the Southern District of ? New York. During that time he hus secured cash payments to the govern? ment of $5.500,000, and his office ex? penses have been less than $200.000. Ills friends declare that there Is no other government official who can ap? proach this record. Just before Mr. Wise came Into of- | flco the feus of the department were i abolished. Had they not been abol- ' Ished Mr. Wise, who has the best ' record for convictions of any United ; Slates district attorney for this dls- I trlct, would have profited by over $400,000. His actual compensation fori the two yoers was $20.000. "It's really less ri^n that," said Mr. j Wise yesterday. "1 am PVild with Washington checks, and to get them cashed costs me $10 a year, so you can figure my salary at $9,990." In one case called to the attention of the court. Mr. Wise showed that a bribe of $15,000 had been offered to him in the trial of the United Wireless Telegraph Company. Ho sent thc In- j dieted men to jail. In several other cases offenders have offered Mr. Wise 'arge sums If he would advise the court that a fine bo imposed instead of Jail sentence. In? variably he has brousht these cases to the attention of the court and sc? oured convictions. .Some UIk Collections. Here are some of the cases In which Mr. Wise has collected for thc govern? ment: From the sugar trust. $3,100,000; H. J. Duvcen, $1.215,000: II. & J. Roson herg, $50.000; Sleeper Trunk. $100.000; wire trust, to date. $00.000. Besides these there are pending other large settlements in the wire trust.' lumber trust, leather trust, box board' trust. Benjamin Duveen and the mag? azine trust. Mr. Wise has not lost one hlg case. Th.- fntlre record of his office is twen? ty-live cases In which a verdict of not guilty wus returned against some 500 tried or settled by the payment of a tine. Bach week sees a How of $5"0 and |1,000 hills Into the office of th* clerk of United States Commissioner Shields, and it is a joke around the! Federal building that the banks have; to send there for large blll.i because of the number used to pay fines. Mr. Wise has made It exceedingly: dangerous lo operate got-rlch-qulck schemes in New York, and by his of- i forts has protected thousands of In? vestors throughout the country. He has secured Jail sentences for several bucket shop men. promoters of fake j schemes and officers of corporations who simply wish to sell slock and get out. To a reporter Mr. Wise said: "If I was to pick out the best thing 1 have done in the public interest it would be something to which little at? tention has been given In the public press. I believe that I have done more real good In crushing out a number of these fake medical concerns than In anything else. "One year ago the newspapers of the West were flooded with notices of va? rious concerns in New York that would guarantee to cure anything. I havej now secured Jail sentences against two of the largest firms, and the manager of another has pleaded guilty and is awaiting sentence. "Men and women throughout the country suffering from rheumatism or kindred complaints would he in? duced to send their money here for a j sure cure instead of visiting a local physician. There were numerous pa? thetic instances where a man in the last stages of consumption would he induced to send his entire earnings to one of these firms and would re? ceive In response a box of absolutely worthless pills "I do not think that this will be done any more. In each case we have tried we have secured jail sentences for the persons indicted. It is lucky I am not a judge, or I believe I would find that some of these quaekB were guilty of murder. We hud testimony in one case of a poor man who sent his week's earnings to a New Ytrk concern and received a bottle of pills that would do no good. He kept on using these pills, and at the same time Infecting all those around him. when any physician would have told him . what he should do for nothing, or at most a $1 fee." An to Prison Sentences. In regard to thc action of tho courts recently in accepting fines from de? fendants in smuggling cases or where the charge was a violation of thc anti? trust law, the district ntt</f-ney de? clined to make any comment. "I cannot criticize the Judges," he said. "In op?n court I have again and ngain declared that n Jail sentence should be the only penalty, but the Judges probably know better. There Is no doubt that the poor offender is being sent to jail and the rich offend? er given a fine, hut the judges prob? ably have some good reason for this. I can make my plea In court arid can get an answer in court and '.hat's all there is to the matter." Mr. Wise Is a grandson of Governor Henry A. Wise, of Virginia. He v. ?.s graduated from the Virginia Military Institute In lSflfi and later from the New York Law School. He was major In the Fourth United States '-'j'uptoer Regiment during the Spanish War, and was an assistant district attorney for three years before being appointed to t-ho head of the department.

Tho only portion of the various Chinese exclusion lawa not repealed is that section of the act of 18S2, which pro? vides that no State or Federal court shall admit Chinese to citizenship. Senator DUUngham's bill also pro? vides for the exclusion from the United States of "all male aliens six? teen years of age or over, who are physically capablo of reading and writing, but unable to read and write In some language or dialect." It pro? vides, however, that an admissible alien may bring in his father 01 grandfather over fifty-five years of age or a son not over eighteen years of age, whether such persons are lltcr erate or not. The bill makes it unlawful uhdei penalty of $10o for any steam-alp com? pany to bring to the United Statoa any alien of the class mentioned or any alien not eligible to naturalization.
