PRESSURE ON SENATE
Favorable Action on Peace Treatle? 1? |
Ueaired.
[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."
Both the President and Secretary
Knox are highly desirous of having
the treaties passed by the Senate be?
fore adjournment.

city. Mrs. Emma Immerman, other- |
wise Munn. late of New York City..1

note on her f>ed asking her to please

MANY MARRIAGES ERROR1

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

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.
The big guns are now bftlns; mare
at the army arsenals and by c-rivaia
contractors, and should be In place at
least a year before the llrst vei .el
passes through the canal. The gener;:!
staff of the army already Is turning
it? attention to the selection and early
dispatch of troops to garrison the
fortifications.

AMERICANS BUSY
ATRACEC0NGRE8S
Best Speeches Attributed to
Delegates in London From
United States.
Eondon. 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?

he Is well qualified to deal with it, as

WHOLESALE PLOT TO
POISON CHILDREN
-
Fulton, Mo. 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

! 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

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?

' Less than a week ago another pack?

old child of the family was detected
in the act of putting a piece of the

thut It was sprinkled profusely with
strychnine. Twice since then pack?
ages of gum have been placed near

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.

(Continued From Flrat Page.)
citizenship by naturalization uro ex?
cluded, the bill proposes to give Asiat lo
Immigrants the same legal status ac?
corded to all other Immigrants. 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.
The contruct labor provision1 of the.
immigration law Is retained prac?
tically In its present form, but to the
excluded classes "persons who have,
come in consequence of advertisement:;
for manual laborers published in a
foreign country," are added. There Is
provision for the criminal prosecution
of corporations, companies or person,
who solicit or assist In the Importa?
tion of contract laborers.
The provision of the present law,
which permits the Importation of
skilled labor if labor of a like kind
unemployed cannot be found In this
country, Is amended so as to permit
the Secretary of Commerce and Labor
to determine the necessity for auch
Importation prior to Us accomplish?
ment. A line of 1100 Is Imposed In
the bill for encouraging or soliciting
alien immigration. As a further pun?
ishment the President Is authorized to
prohibit the landtng of passengers at
United States ports by steamship com?
panies violating this provision.
Authority Is given for the deporta?
tion of Immigrants imprisoned for
crime within five years after arrival,
and of those who become a public
charge within three year3 of landing.
Immigrant stations at interior points
are provided for as a means of insur?
ing a belter distribution of the lmml
' grants.
