most successful convention of its kind
ever held came to an end today when

The new board of directors met imme
diately after adjournment and took up
the question of the date and place for
the next convention Toledo 0 and
one or two other cities sought to have
the delegates meet elsewhere than In
WiBhington in 1910 but the directors
pointed out the most suitable place is
the national capital and that the con
vention should be held coincident with
the convening of congress The matter
was put over after much discussion It
was declared at the close of the meet
ing however that a majority of the
hoard is opposed to any change in time

we have at this moment laid upon us a i
single taska task that dominates and
transcends because it embraces and in i
volves every great and beneficent social
and political change upon Which our
hearts are set That task is to vindicate
and establish upon an unshakable foun I
dation the principles of republican gov I
Referring to the education and licensing
bills the premier said that the govern
ment stood In the main upon principles I i
of the bills that the house of lords re
jected The franchise law he added was
still unem umbered with artificial distinc
lion and impediment for which there Was I
no justification
Ipon the topic of woman sunfageAir I
Asquith said his views were well Known
TJe had no reason to f Her them despite I
iue suicidal excesses of a small section I
of the advocates for such a change
Home Rule for Ireland
After referring to the action of the
house of lords on the matter of Welsh
religious equality and the fate of certain
Scottish land bllUv Mr Aaqulth turned
his attention to Ireland which he said
had been fortunate for once because the
measure sent up in her behalf did not
come violently athwart prejudices of the
house of lords
Speaking last year before my acces
sion to the premiership Mr Asqutth con
tinued I described the Irish policy as the
one undeniable failure of British states
manship I repeat tonight what I said
then and on behalf of my colleagues and
I believe on behalf of my party I reiter
ate that this is a problem to be solved
only in one wayby a policy which whiTa
explicitly safeguarding the supreme m
dicisible authority of the imperial parlia
ment can set up in Ireland a system of
full self government as regards purely
Irish affairs
There is not and cannot be any ques
tion of separation There is not and can I
not be any question of rivalry or compet I
ing for supremacy subject to these condi
tions That is the liberal policy For
reasons which we believe to have been
adequate the present parliament was dis
abled In advance from proposing any suctt
solution but In the house the liberal gov
ernment at the head of a liberal major
ity will be In this matter entirely free
Defense of the Budget
Mr Asquith defended the budget as nec
essary to social reform and in this respect
old age pensions were the first step The
budget he continued has been thrown out
by the house of lords after weeks of de
bate and the government as a result was
confronted with three constitutional inno
vations first the claim of the house of
lords to control in levying taxation sec
ond the claim of the same house to the
right to compel dissolution of the popular
chamber and third the assertion of the
house of lords of their power to make and
unmake the executive government of the
What has been ddne declared Mr
Abquith may be done again It becomes
our first duty to make its recurrence im
possible We shall therefore demand authority
hority frommetheMelec orate o awla ean
thority from the electorate to translate an
ancient unwritten usage into an act of
parliament and to place upon the statutd
book recognition explicit and complete of
the settled doctrine of our constitution
that it is beyond the province of the house
of lords to meddle with any law to any
degree or for any purpose of national
The Limit Reached
The premier said that neither he nor any
other liberal minister supported by a ma
jority in the house of commons was going
to submit against the rebuffs and hu
miliations of the last four years They
undoubtedly would not enter office unless
they could secure safeguards that experi
ence has shown to be necessary for the
legislative unity and honor of their party
The liberal party Mr Asquith declared
was not promoting the abolition of the
house of lords or the setting up of a single
chamber but it asked of the electorate
that the house of lords be confined to its
proper functions and that the absolute
veto must go He personally did not un
derestimate the odds against which he
had to contend but the government was
unanimous in demanding the absolute con
trol of the finances by the house of com
mons the maintenance of free trade and
an effective curtailment of the power of
the house of lords
Resolution of Confidence
The meeting carried a resolution declar
ing unabated confidence In Mr Asquiths
leadership David LloydGeorge chancel
lor of the exchequer who gamed the
budget rejected by the house of lords
moved a vote of thanks to the chairman
of the meeting He received an ovation
Mr Asquith was not alone In giving to
the people their first real touch of the
campaign for Arthur J Balfour leader
of the opposition in the house of com
mons made a simultaneous plea to them

Offers of Reconciliation
Overtures for a reconciliation with his
I I wife were tentatively made by Mr
J I Brokaw through his counsel today Aft
er a long conference with John F Mc

that his client would welcome the re
sumption of amicable relations with Mrs
Mr BroUaw said Mr McIntyre
loves his wife dearly and is willing to
have the suit discontinued in spite of
all the charges she has made if herwill i
only return o him He believes his wife
has been wrongly advised and he is by
no means in fear of losing the suit
Such thing is beyond the range of pos
sbllity declared James A Blair Mrs
Brokaws father
Mrs Brokaw met the questions of her
husbands counsel in crossexamination
with quick answers and a show of spirit
She said seven ministers had refused to
marry her and Mr Brokaw because the
latter had been divorced
Once Smoked a Cigarette
Counsel asked if she ever smoked cig
Yes on one occasion I did replied
Mrs Brokaw I was with Mr Brokaws
sister at the time
Her husband had objected she said and
she did not smoke again
Mrs Brokaw admitted on the stand that
she could nut remember the name of the
clergyman who had married her Coun
sel for the defense subsequently intimated
to the newspapers that it might be shown
that no legal marriage had taken place
Mrs Brokaws father James A Blair
learning of this intimation pressed his
daughters lawyer to make an immediate
statement and Mr Baldwin addressed the
court as follows
It has been my desire to try this case
without the newspapers The clergyman
who performed the marriage was the Rev
Dr Spaulding of the First Presbyterian
church of Syracuse and be was retained
by Lieutenait Governor White for this
ceremony This will set the public and

it is clear there is a beginning at say

The exploitation of these women after
