HOUSE REFUSES APPROPRIATION GRAHAM FOR BALLINGER PINCHOT PROBE. Washington, Jan. 25.—Refusing to appropriate any money for the ex -1 tenses of the immigration commis sion, the house of representatives yes terday passed the urgent defieten „-y bill carrying a total appropriation ot nearly $5,000,000 which is a reduction of more than SI,OOO under 'he es timates submitted by the treasury de partment. Hostile criticism of the immigration commission formed the leading feat ure of the debate, which was con cluded by the elimination of tne en tire paragraph for the continuation of the work of that commission which desired $125,000 to print its reports arid conclude its business. Hollowing the action of the demo cratic caucus, the house appointed Mr. Graham, I linois, as a member of tht Balllnger-Hinchot investigating com mittee. Unless friends of the immigration commission succeed in having the item of $125,000 restored to the de ficiency bill in the senate it will be compelled to suspend for lack o funds. The commission was created r 1909 and authorized to make full tr quiry into ail sahjects dealing witn the admission of aliens. It brought out a number of interesting reports dealing with conditions on immigra tion ships and lives of aliens after ar rival in this country.

Indi ana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin and a portion of Minnesota. The governor says that congress ap propriated to local uses with the states created about $80,000,000 de rived from their sale. This, he said, was contrary to the terms of the ce sesslon. Virginia's interest in the lands reserved amounted to one-sev enth. The governor recommends that the state proceed to recover this. CHICAGO WILL HOLD MUNICIPAL CONGRESS Chicago. Jan. 25—The city council last night endorsed the Chicago as sociation of commerce project for an international municipal congress and exposition in Chicago in the autumn of 1911.

The exhibits were to pertain to strec. construction, light ing, power 1 iants, sanitation, civic | art. taxes, liquor traffic, treatment of crime, el* < NAM HOLD REALISTIC FAIR OLD-FASHIONED PUMPKIN SHOW, • “ALL SAME LIKE WHITE MAN S. FINE DISPLAY OF BLANKETS SIL VERSMITH WORK AND BABIES. Down at Sblprick agency, in one corner of the great Navajo reserva tion. where a tew thousand Indians live in a kingdom that is larger than ail the New England states comotned, the natives are still talking of (hell first annual fair, which was hclffOct 20 aud 21, says a Denve. correspond ent of the New Orleans himes Demo crat. The fair was "all same white man’s,” even to displays of pumpkins. Not the baby show was over looked, and Lenna Oliver, who re ceived a prize of fifty pounds of flour for exhibiting the cleanest baby, and Lillie She-Da-Zia, who received The same sort of p reward for exhibiting the prettiest papoose, are the proud est squaws on the reservation. Big Charley, an industrious Navajo, whose irrigated farm would be the envy ot many a white rancher, won the prize for the biggest and best pumpkins, his trophy being a shovel, while the other prize pumpkin exhibitors, de- Ivo-Wat-So-Gee, Car-Nan Eze-Be-Nl and Att-Cit-Y-Be-Ga carried off a mattock, grub hoe and garden hoe in the order named The Navajus have been noted tor years as the most industrious of In dians, but the fair at the Bhfprock agency was the first public exhibi tion of their handiwork. The trine became self-supporting many years ago. Some of the Navajos have waxed wealthy from the sale of blankets and silverware trinkets, for not only are they the greatest blanket weav ers In the world, hut they are silver smiths of the first class. It Was a Regular County Fair. Superintendent W. T. Shelton ot | ‘he Shiprock agency came to the ((inclusion that a genuine “county , talr” on old fashioned lines would be a good thing to stimulate the inter est of the Indians in their farm work and other industrial enterprises. Word was sent out by the Indian po lice, twelve of whom guard the des tinies of the upper part of the great reservation, and, though the tribe had only two weeks' notice, the ex hibition hall was filled with a very creditable line of farm products, not to speak of a display of genuine Nav ajo blankets and silversmith work that would make the eyes of a dealer sparkle with delight. The blankets and silverwork exhibits were worth, It Is estimated, close to SIOO,OOO The Navajos are great judges ot vai uscs in these lines and some of the blankets were family heirlooms that would not be parted wltb at any price. Of general exhibits at the Navajo fair there were 290. The corn ex hibit numbered 185, the wheat exhib its 73, oats 47, melons 90, squash and pumpkins 100, potatoes 30, al falfa 24, teams of work horses 60, saddle horses 45, pretty babies (JO, native blankets 230, Germantown blankets 25. There were numerous exhibits of sheep and goats, of which the Navajos have great herds. The sports consisted of footraces, horse races and native games and amusements and in the evening tne Indians gave their ceremonial and sacred dances, which proved most In teresting to the visitors. The long est foot race was five aud one-halt miles and so terrific was the pace that only four out of thetwelve who entered finished the race. Exhibits Brought in Wagons. Some of the exhibits were brought nearly 100 miles in wagons. One lot or fifty general exhibits Trom sa- Noos-Tee, in the vicinity of Noel s uading post, far away in the desert, deserved especial mention. TtHs lot contained the prize-winning assort ment of silver work. None ot the products raised at Shiprock, under the supervision of government em ployes, was allowed to compete with the products of the Indian ranefiers. It was the idea of Superintendent Shelton to make the fair something that would demonstrate the actual progress that is being made by the tribe as a whole. The prizes weri all useful and the Indians were far prouder over the gifts of farm im plements and household necessities than they would have been over the ribbons and gold medals. Eor the best general display ot farm products, Bar-Ber-Bit-Cilly ’ won first prize, a double harness. The best general display of Indian pio ducts brought Gar-Na-Nezi-Be TTi a corn drill and for the best native blanket, all wool, Kin-Le-Che-Ne re-j ceived a cook stove, while for the 1 best Germantown blanket Non-Co-De- 1 Re-Tah received a washtub. Tne j melon exhibit was astounding - anti' great piles of melons were placed in j rows in the scSoolhouse yard, to tie feasted upon at will by the visiting j Indiana. De-Be-Ue-Tah was the prize winner among the melon raisers, re- i reiving a shovel for his display. Under New Type of Indian Agent. Shiprock agency, which is located in San Juan county, New Mexico, Is in charge of \V. T. Shelton, who has looked after the affairs of the Nava jos in that section for about six years it may be stated parenthetically that the old-time type of Indian agent—a type that wrought nothing but harm to the red men—has vanished utterly from western reservations. It will be tJHiud. almost without exception, that these posts are filled with earnest, conscientious men whose sole idea is to advance the nation's red wards that are under their charge. Some of them meet with greater success than others owing to the material with which they have to work. Some tribes are slow to adopt the white man’s ways, but others, like the Na vajos, learn readily and are naturally industrious and their advancement has been phenomenal. Mr. Shelton represents the newer type of Indian agent and during his incumbency 01 Shiprock has won the complete con fidence of the Indians. He has made the agency a model of its kind. Tne school buildings are of brick and stone. They are arranged about a considerable tract, surrounded by well-kept lawns and attractive flower beds. Adjoining are well-kept veget able gardens and hay and grain fields, orchards and pastures. A greenhouse has recently been completed and is in charge of one of the Indian boys who has shown great capability as a florist. There is a hospital, dining hall, blacksmith shop and laundry, most of the work being done by tne pupils themselves. A pumping plant supplies water to all buildings and the agency is lighted by gas An artificial ice plant is operated during the long hot summer -months and a ntar-by coal mine is operated under the supervision of an experienced miner, providing fuel for a good share of the tribe. A sawmill is operated in the timber west of the agency and the Navajos are using an in creasing amount of lumber to im prove their habitations. REPLY TO THE REPUBLICAN. New York Times—lt grieves us to note that the Springfield Republican refuses to accept as adequate our ex planation of the similarity that marked Commander Peary’s desertp ton of polar conditions and the guess at them made by Dr. Cook, it in sists that the commander was by no means as nearly sure as we said that he would find only water and ice at the pole. Did he not, it asks, spend not a little of his time while at the pole in scanning the horizon with his telescope to see if he could see any signs of land, and did he not burden himself _in his northward journey with a weight and line for taking soundings? He did, he did, but in his narative he spoke of "possible land," not of land expected or probable, ana we are obstinate enough to think that the sounding line supports our con tention as to the safety of Dr. Cook's assumption, rather than the Republi can's as to its danger. But, insists the Republican, it wasn’t only as to the absence of land at the pole that Dr. Cook agreed witn Commander Peary; both of them also said that as the pole was ap proached the road grew smoother and that on reaching their destination they found rather warm weather for that part ot the world. So there were three "strange coincidences” instead of one. Again we see the coincidence, but not the strangeness. Every traveler on the polar ice cap has noted the easily explicable smoothing of his road, not as he drew near the pole, but as he went farther and farther from the iand, where tho disturbance ot the ice would naturally be greatest, owing to inteiterence with its drift. As for the mildness of the poiar tem perature, there was not the slightest reason why anybody should expect the weather at the pole to be worse than or different from the weather elsewhere on the ice cap—and the season was advancing, the sun get ting higher. What the one man feared and the other had to keep in mind was the difficulty caused by open leads, not a special chill in tne air at a spot different from other spots in that region ouly in that the geog raphers, in mapping it, make a lot of imaginary lines that 1 ave nothing to do with temperature converge there. Dr. Cook didn't know very much, but he knew that in ail probability there was deep water at the pole, that the ice was better there than just off the coast, and that as a rule the weather in the northern hemi sphere is warmer in April than in March. So do all three of the Repub lican's "strange coincidences" lose tne quality that keeps it from frankly and humbly admitting that it was w rong lor once. Chicago Host. —Asa self-appointed recorder of the post-season game in the Cook-Peary league, now being played between the Springfield Repub lican and the New York Times, it is our duty to present elsewhere upon this page today the answer of the Times to the Republican's demand for turther information upon the Cook story. ,In our judgment it is an an swer that does not answer, ft does not justify the sweeping generalities with which the Times originally at tacked the Republican's case, nor. does it at all explain how Cook man- ’ aged to make three such extraordi narily correct statements as to polar conditions. The Times will have to put in a better pitcher of facts before it can hope to clean up the Republi can and claim the pennant.

GREAT RECEPTION AT THE SHORHAM—LA FOLLETTE AND STEPHENSON THERE. Madison, Jatt. 25. When Governor Davidson appeared at the executive cnamber yesterday, the first time since hts return from his visit to Washington, he found a new and pleasing duty, that of meet ing Governor Glasscock of West Vir ginia, and members of the state board of control of that state and the re gents of West Virginia university, who called to visit briefly and view the ne<v capitol building. The visitors were pleased with their reception and overflowing in praise of the badger state and its enterprise. Later, speaking of his visit (o Washington, Governor Davidson said that the conference of governors did ] not accomplish much at the session recently closed. "At the same time,”! j he said, “I believe that in the end ! these conferences of the governors of I i the different states will result in a \ great deal of benefit for the people. ! "There were some 32 governors in j attendance at the meeting and a wide; ! range of subjects were discussed dur-| ! ing the three days we were together, j "On taking the chair on the last; i afternoon I spoke of Wisconsin's ad-, ] vanced legislation on the pure food, i proposition, and while it was so late | in the conference that much time could not be given the subject, I feel encouraged from the general interest shown to feel that other states will rally to the Wisconsin standard on the issue when I bring the subject up for consideration at the next conference, which will be held somewhere between thanksgiving and the holidays next winter, in time to permit the govern ors to use the material there suggest-j ied in their messages to the legisla-! ! tures of their respective states.” Gave 1 nor 27frtthiffJr'tAS*-. J | consin has gone farther than the gen eral government or any of the other j states In its pure food legislation. We j have fixed a standard for food pre ! parations by law and have forbidden 1 the use of benzoate of soda, giving the ; people the benefit of whatever doubt • may exist as to the action of that ! chemical in food preservation. "Per sonally, I believe Mr. Roosevelt was duped by the commission in the stand j taken on that preservative and I am sure Wisconsin is not prepared to take any backward step in the mat ’ ter,” said Governor Davidson. "While I consider the outrage of the 1 use of deleterrious substances in the preservation and preparation of food products the most damnable ever practiced on the American people, de stroying the public health by the use of poisonous substances, I realize that it is a great hardship for our whole salers and canning and preserving con cerns to have to put up one class of goods to conform to the Wisconsin 1 standard and another class for sale j outside of the state in competition 1 with the products of other states and I hope that we will be able to inter est adjoining states, at least, and get I them to fall in line with us in our ; pure food legislation, j "The conference developed many , points of exceeding interest to the governors. For instance, it was found that only the governors of New York and of Wisconsin have the power un der their state laws to remove county officers for cause, and two other gov ernors expressed their desire to have this power, although I told them that the time would probably come when they would have occasion to wish themselves without it. "The registratioa of automobiles was another sub|eet given much at ‘ention at the conference, and it ap peared that a number of the states. especially the eastern states with their good roads laws ate far ahead of us in their regulation and taxation of automobiles. I think this is a sub ject which might well be taken up by the legislature of our state." Governor Davidson said that other states are ahead of us in some re spects and by conferring with the ex-! ecutlves of those commonwealths we all get ideas which will prove of bene fit to our people. This is the only way in which those conferences may be made effective. “A more hopeful feeling is manifest ing itself among republicans at Wash ington over the outlook for legisla tion by this congress and for the con trol of the next house." said the gov ernor. “President Taft seems to be winning to his program the support of republicans of all opin ions. I believe him to be absolutely sincere. I feel assured he is doing his utmost to c&ry out the policies bequested to him by ex-Presldent Roosevelt. He wants to do the right! ♦hing and the course he is taking' will, I believe, enable him to secure the passage by congress of the laws for which he asks.

Y. it would be improper for me to talk about it at this time. "THe waterpower question was dis cussed at-our meeting, and many of the governors, especially from the western states, showed a disposition to fight the proposition of government control as opposed to state control, showing a disposition to stand val iantly for states’ rights in the mat ter. I called their attention to the fact, that the national go eminent has shown no disposition to interfere in any way with Wisconsin, and as we understand it, congress confines any such intention to places where 'he general government itself owns the land, which is a very different propo sition and one in which I can see no flaw. “I was greatly pleased with the re ception extended to me at the Shore ham by the Wisconsin colony, and was surprised to find so many Wis consin people resident in Washington. Both of the United States senators were there and all of the congress men, except Congressman Davidson, who had an important engagement, une tt was Mlu'’ and ‘Bob’ and ‘Uncle ike' all over again as in the old days and everybody seemed to enjoy the occasion. It was a great display of Wisconsin loyalty. I felt greatly hon ored at the attention shown my daugh ter and myself and was thoroughly pleased at the spirit shown in the whole affair. The gathering certainly put Wisconsin on the map so far as Washington is concerned.” DOLLS WITH INDIVIDUALITY. The fashion plate doll is doomed, say the toymakers. So far they haven't convinced the toy dealers, and the Christinas windows will show plenty of large and expensively dressed dolls with snug round faces, black and blue eyes and rosy cheeks. But next year—here agairf speaks the toy man ufacturer —the dolls with the dough faces will not stand even second to the new kind coming out of Germany. Some of tbese dolls are on the Ameri can market this year, but not very many. The new doll, the invention of a Munich woman, Marion Kaulitz, is known as the character doll, and it is having a tremendous vogue in Ger many. Instead 1 of a doll with a blank, lifeless face, begowned and berib boned, her dolls have Individuality and they are dressed just a.< the children who play with them are dressed every day.
