New York, Feb. 10.—A resolution to close all city offices, banks and shops in New York City on the re turn of Theodore Roosevelt next June will be introduced by a Brook lyn alderman at the next meeting of the board.

Calhoun, United States minister to China, appeared before supreme court of Illinois today, in an appeal to have that body overrule a decis ion bearing upon the ten-hours a day working law for women. Judge Tut hill last July held the law limiting the working day to ten hours un constitutional in that it infringes woman's right to contract for the price of her labor. Calhoun was one of the large number of Chicago men and women opposing the decision, who appeared before the supreme court. The minister to Chicano told the court that he would confine his address to a single phase of the case —its humanitarian or common sense side. "When men and women are depen dent upon their daily wage, when they are face to face with poverty all the time, when the loss of a days work and a days wages means not enough money to pay rent, or not enough to buy food, it is not fair, it is not common sense, to say that they enjoy any freedom to contract for the sale of their labor," he said. "Must the selfish desire of a few men to sell more goods, to grind out Madriz more orders, be allowed to stifle the needful demand of maidenhood and of motherhood."
