The honor of making the initial flo-
for a fund for the aid of mem
bers of the International Photo-En
gravers' Union who have tuberculosis
belongs to San Francisco Photo-En
gravers' Union No. 8. Delegate An
drew J. Gallagher, while At the late
international convention, promised that
his union would start the movement
by a contribution of $600. His union
hait made his promise good. Delegate
Gallagher was*«**onstralne<l to make
this promise not only because he was
thoroughly in accord with the idea of
faringf aring for members afflicted with the
dread disease, but to show apprecia
tion for the generous manner in which
\ elster unions came to the rescue of
VXo. & after the great calamity of last
• April. Other unions are adding to the
"fund and It is said that at the next
convention there will have been ac
cumulated a sufficient fund to be of
great service to the afflicted. Photo
engraving is essentially a chemical
process and persons so engaged come
in contact with many poisons and con
sumption finds easy access into the

Friends of Ships Preparing
for Another Vigorous-
WASHINGTON. ; March 16.— Theflght
over ship subsidy will be renewedjat
the next session -of Congress- with "as
much vigor as ever. President Roosevelt
has - announced that he will speak on
the queetion during his visit"- to In
diana and Michigan In May next, and
the advocates of ship subsidy- In Con
gress,' led. by. Senator.' Galilhger of, New
Hampshire, will gather material dur
ing the recess for a new campaign next
winter. , .
In view of these facts It may be.ln
teresting to analyze the vote cast Jon
the ''ship-subsidy.. bill in the Housejiast
week, as a \u25a0 majority of. the members of
both parties will be , members of the
Sixtieth Congress. ~
The highest number of votes cast
against flhlp-subsidy legislation; in any
of the six ballots taken In, the House
was 162 and the highest number for; it
was 164. The highest majority ."re
corded by the opponents of the legisla
tion was S and the highest by it*
friends was 12. The one real test of
strength was the first ballot,. wh«m the
opponents of the bill scored a victory, by
a .vote of 162 to 154 and on; this vote
54 Republicans, Including Representa
tive Littauer of New York, who moved
to reconsider the' vote taken, were re.-,
corded against the legislation. < On the
second rollcall 50 Republicans voted
against the bill, 48 on the. third, 44 on
the fourth, 43 on the fifth, and 40 Re
publicans were still voting against the
bill when the battle ended.;
It was a notable split in the party
ranks which^Jthe leaders admit, . is , "too
serious to be overlooked. As a matter
of fact, the sentiment In the House
against the bill was even stronger
than was shown by this vote and h, ad
