MOOSE TAKES LEAD
HINEBAUGH, PROGRESSIVE. IN TRODUCES A PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY BILL. BACKED BY ALL HIS PARTY Democrats Hesitant About Putting Wilson's Suggestion Into Form of a Measure —Such Law Might Permit Women to Vote. By GEORGE CLINTON, Washington.—lt is a representative of the Progressive party who. with the approval of the party's organization, is the iirst to get into the field of legis lation with a presidential primary bill. Representative Hinebaugh, Progres sive, of Illinois, was the author of the measure to put into the law the spirit and the letter of the pronouncement in ■avor of presidential primaries made by the Progressive party in its con vention at Chicago one year ago last August. The legislative reference committee of the Progressive party has just met and has given the bill of Mr. Hine baugh its indorsement. There are some Progressives here who think that one of the provisions of the bill is open to criticism and that perhaps another bill drawn by Mr. Hinebaugh **arly last spring is in this one particu lar better suited to the case The measure just introduced by the Illinois representative, however, probably will stand as the expressior of the Pro gressive party’s endeavor in the presi dential primary matter. Thus far no Democrat in congress has cared to crystallize the party chief tain's recommendation for presiden tial primaries into the form of a bill. It was expected that zealous party men seeking for prestige and renown would put the typewriter through the paces and make a race for the bill basket witli the first proposition to give effect to the president's wishes. Nothing of the kind has happened. Thus far no announcement of the administration's purpose in its own behalf has been made. It may be that before long the president, on his own Initiative, will see that a measure em bodying his ideas is introduced, but perhaps with his "one thing at a time" program he will postpone the primary day until some more conveni ent season. Hinebaugh’s Two Bills. It was early in the spring that the first Hinebaugh primary bill was in troduced into congress. As has been said, it has been superseded by an other bill by the same author. In the first bill many of the election func tions are left to the various states. In the second bill there is a provision which creates a ‘ board of national election commissioners to be composed of five persons, to be appointed by the president, by and w ith the advice and consent of the senate, and places in the hands of this national election commission all the functions which under the first bill would be left to the various states." Hack of tho Hinebaugh bill stand the Progressives now in congress. While there is some difference of opiaion, as has been said, concerning the substitution of the federal for the state control features, the bill as it stands probably will be made the standard of tho Progressives’ sanc tioned legislation. There are about twenty Progressives In the house of representatives. They are not all written down in the direc tory as Progressives with a capital P, but all of them are in sympathy with the Progressive platform and almost always vote with the Progressives when any matter of principle is in volved. A bill drawn by a Progressive and backed by the entire representa tion in tho house will get the atten tion of all the membership of all par ties. Would Permit Women to Vote. If congress shall pass the presiden tial primary law it is believed that un der it women will be allowed to vote A constitutional amendment is not necessary- to put a presidential pri mary into effect There seems to be nothing in the document to forbid women from voting in presidential pri maries if the law instituting them shall be worded properly. Representative Lafferty of Oregon, who is carried in the Congressional Directory as a Progressive Republican, printed just as it is here with no hyphen and with both words capital ized. has followed in the trail of Rep resentative Hinebaugh of Illinois and has introduced a presidential primary bill on his own account. When Mr. Lafferty came to congress he declared himself a Progressive. It is .ow said that he prefers to be called a Republi can. though he wishes to be known as one with Progressive marks loqming large. The Progressives, however, it Is said, will prefer to follow the presi dential priamry lead of Mr. Hinebaugh. No “Harshness" for Business. When Washington heard from Indianapolis that Vice-President Mar shall had intimated in an inter view given in the capital of his home state that there would be no drastic anti trust legislation this win ter, there were some people who thought that the vice-president had made a serious blunder and that he would find himself completely at outs with the president of the United States As has been forecast in these dis patches from Washington, the condi tion seeius to be very much as the vice-president has outlined it. Mr Marshall unquestionably knew what he was talking about, and very likely NEED NOT FEAR OCEAN PERIL Men Bearing the Name of Hugh Wil liam* Apparently Are Immune From Death by Drowning. Among many English seafaring men there is & tradition that no man blessed with the name of Hugh Williams will ever die at sea—a tradition based on one of the most remarkable senes of coincidences ever recorded in the logs of those who go down to the sea in ships. The last and most remarkable in stance of this immunity of the Hugh Williamses from death at sea occurred in ISS9, when a coal barge was caught in a storm in the North sea and went down. There were nine men on board, and all were lost except two. who were uncle and nephew and each of whom was named Hugh Williams. For years afterward the relatives of the fortu nate men held a yearly reunion to cel ebrate the day of deliverance from what bad seemed certain death. But the superstition that no Hugh Williams can become Neptune's vic- he had direct information from th president that while a comprehensive plan for anti-trust legislation might be outlined this wither, it was not the in tention of the administration to rec ommend drastic legislation or to push the entire program of moderate anti trust legisltaion to a completion at this session. The sequence of events points to a period of rent for the business world. Great corpoiation after great corjiora tion has been telling the United Slates government that it will obey the law and therefore it is probable that tome of tbe prosecutions which have oeen instituted will not be pusned, and if the corporations continue to do the right thing as the department of jus tice views it, the prosecutions will be few and far between. Seek to Reassure Business. Some time ago it became known from some of the president's close ad visers that Mr. Wilson desired that business should be reassured. It also became known that Democratic lead ers in congress were urging tha; no drastic legislation affecting business should be passed at this session. Men in a position to know seemed to be cer tain that the president would say some definite reassuring words at a later time. When the currency bill was signed Mr. Wilson spoke of bu&iess and of its better relations with the government and he made his fine phrase calling the condition "A Con stitution of Peace.” It was within forty-eight hours aft er this address of the president and immediately following his signing of the currency bill that Thomas K. Mar shall, vice-president of the United States, said in Indianapolis that it could be taken for granted that no drastic anti-trust legislation would be enacted by congress this winter. All things point to a des’re on the part of the Democratic majority in congress to avoid any legislation which, even if seemingly commend able, shall upset business conditions. It seems the Democrats think that such legislation as they desire to en act can be spread over a longer period and that gradually and easily the in dustries of all kinds can adjust them selves to the new plan of action. From this springs the desire to do not ring “harsh hastily." It must not be understood that the Democrats think that such legislation as is demanded by the Baltimore plat form will be harsh. They do say, how ever, that they tbink that, coming "in a bunch.” it might upset conditions and perhaps work to the temporary in jury of the country. It is to be a pro gram of make haste slowly. Saving American Birds. Congress, as is probably pretty well known by this time, patsed a bill at the last session prohib iting the importation of the p.um age of wild oirus into this country. The reasons lor this legislation are not perfectly clear, apparently, to the people of the United States. It was not passed solely because of a desire to save the wild bird life of other countries, although such a thought en tered into the legislation. The real reason was that much of the plumage of the birds of other countries cannot be distinguished from the plumage of birds of this country, and it was found frequently before the law was passed that birds protected in this coun’ry were killed for their plumage, which was then passed off as the plumage of foreign birds. Tho bird protectors, who are trying to do what they can to serve the ag ricultural interests of the country by saving the insectiverous birds, found that the lure of the market was too strong for many American gunners, and that they would kill ail kinds of birds, trusting to luck to pass tbeir plumage off as that of the bird* of Kurope, Asia or Africa. It took about 18 years to get the necessary protective legislation on the statute books, it was firer. introduced by George Shiras, Jr., a Republican, and a man who has studied wild life from boyhood and who lias the love of nature at heart. Mr. Shiras was a member of congress a good many years ago. He never could get con sideration for his bill. Finally, how ever. public sentiment was aroused and the efforts of the Audubon society met with such success that a Demo cratic congress passed n till wiich had been introduced years letore by a Republican. Many National Bird Rcseives. In addition to his non-importation laws. Uncle Sam is doing a great deal to protect the birds of this country. There are now national bird reserves in maqy parts of the United States, reserves set aside so that during the breeding season at least tbe snng sters. the insect eaters, tho seed eat ers and the game birds can rear their young in peace, free from the terrors of the nest robber and the plume hunter. During the past year seven new na tional bird reservations have beer es tablished by the president of the United States. There are now 61 of these reservations, and the good that they are doing 's manifest in the in creased number of birds which yea: ly make their migratory flight. The new reservations are as follows: Uhamisso island, in Alaska: Pish run, in Montana Desecheo island, in Porto Rico; Gravel island, on Green bay, in Wisconsin; Aleutian islands, in Alas ka; Walker lake, in Arkansas; and Petit Hois island, in Alabama. These new reservations are important breed ing sites for certain species of sild birdy The reservation embracing the islands of the Aleutian chain situtted between the north Pacific ocean and Behring sea. was set apart n%t only as a breeding place for native b rds, bnt for the propagation of rein leer ind fur-bearing animals and also for the development of the fisheries. tim is far older than that.

INCOME TAX FIT IN BYTHE STATE H. W. BOLENS APPEAL IS DIS MISSED BY UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT. merits are not passeo on Decision Is Merely Founded Upon Question of Jurisdiction —Consti- tutional Question Involved. Madison.—A Washington, D. C., dißpatch says; The supreme court has dismissed the appeal from the decision of the Wisconsin supreme court upholding the constitutionality of the Wisconsin income tax law of 1912. The court refused to com ment of the merit of the law. The suit was brought by H. W. Bolens of Port Washington against state officers about a year ago. It was argued before the state supreme court, without a previous hearing in circuit court, and the court upheld the constitutionality of the law. An appeal was then taken to the fed eral court. The supreme court refused the in junction asked. Mr. Bolens’ attor neys then took out a writ of error from the supreme court of the Unit ed States to review the constitutional questions involved. On this point it was argued that the law was in some of its provisions, as ilie graduated feature and the taxation of corpora tions differently from individuals, in violation of the fourteenth amend ment and also infringed the power of congress to regulate interstate com merce. The state argued that Mr. Bolens had no right to dispute the judgment of the state court in the state's name, also that he had not shown any in terest affecting himself. The merits of tlie law were apparently not taken into consideration, the decision be ing on the jurisdictional question.

The amount of tax levied is reduced from $17,406.38 to $9,554.69.

The valuation fixed for each com pany in the present assessment is as follows; Adams Express Cos $ 40,000 American 325,000 Northern 100,000 United States 30,000 Wells Fargo 275,000 Western 37,500 The Pullman Sleeping Car company assessment is fixed at $1,800,000 and the resulting tax is $21,298.38.

Which Seem to Be Worth Copying—Consider* Wringer Absolute Necessity. My method of washing is so easy, and at the same time so effective, that I wish to pass it on for the bene fit of others. I fill my washing machine with wa ter cool enough to bear my bauds iu. and add one and one-half cups of good washing powder. After carefully sorting the clothes, I first put in the lea?t soiled, and turn the machine until they are clean; then with the wringer attached to the ma chine, I wring out all except those with the soiled spots, which I leave in to go through another washing. I then proceed with the nex. lot, and so on until all are done, adding a little boiling water from time to time if the wash is a large one. And nice pieces, such as fine lin gerie, or gingham likely to be faded by the powder, I do by hand with a good soap. After the dirt has all been removed I draw off the water and rinse the ma chine, then till it with clean water to which .s added bluing, and beginning with the first clothes washed 1 rinse them by running. the machine as for washing them, and wring them out.
