GEN. JONES' Air INDORSES BOMB Suffragettes on Hike Ap plaud Explosion in Lloyd- George's Home Staid Old Wilmington Is Shocked by Teachers Urging Violence (Pppf!s! Plspitrb to Tb* Call) WILMINGTON, ivi., Feb. ]?.—Gen eral RoMlie Gardiner Jones, with her valiant I ami of suffragettes r>n their march 1o Washington, resterl their sr-hlntr bodies today at the Hotel r»MT»ont. That is, they did so when they were not holding street meetings. ■ est will end tomorrow, when the hikers will liavp resumed their pilgrim src to Washington. HIM Elizabeth Freeman, an English suffragette, who has conducted several campaigns In Great Britain and is a leader in the present hike, startled the srood people of Wilmington by openly indorsing the action of her English sifters in dynamiting , the country home of T.«]oyd-Gcor?r« near L<ondon. Phe "1 am heartily in sympathy with the ■women of England who blew up Lloyd- QeWgt'i summer home. Xo one was injured, and the same thing will prob ably be done to other property. Lloyd- George was a snake in the grass, while *omc of the other English politicians came out in the open and fought us. "Mrs. Pankhurst has instructed the suffragettes to preserve life, but the destruction of property will be con tinued.' , M ILMIXGTON* WOMEN SHOCKED Miss Maybe!le Morgan, a New York newspaper woman who ia hiking with the army, was even more incendiary. She exclaimed: ' T am glad they blew up the home of Lloyd-George. I would be glad if c nere burned or injured. It would be a cheap revolution if only one man were killed." A woman who was passing by when this declaration was made, gave a sigh and said: "Horrible! Horrible!" The whole thing was too radical for thia conservative town. Love has ambuscaded the army. It happened quite fittingly just south of the Masun and Dixon line. Roy Trolsen, the brawny first base man of the Brooklyn manual training I school team, and Helen Bergmarck, a beautiful suffragette from the golden west, are victims. The big high school youth of 23 joined the suffragette party in Burling ton K. J. CUPID VICTIM PLAYIXG HOOKEY The suffragettes didn't know Roy was playing hookey from school and that he got away from home by telling papa he was going to visit friends in Long island for the weekend. Roy didn't let on. He showed a perfectly delightful interest in votes for women. Miss Bergmarck, who is 21, and who left her home in Colorado to study music in Philadelphia, joined the army there. She was awfully strong for equal franchise, just like Roy. It wasn't long after the hikers left Philadelphia before the stern purposed (suffragettes began to suspect that Roy and Helen were interested in other things than votes and such like. General Jones grasped her staff of generalship firmly this morning and faced the young pair at breakfast. Tt:»y were letting their coffee grow cold while they gazed Into each other's eves. The recruits had to 'fess up. "Please don't put us out of the army for being in 10ve, ,, they chorused.

Feb. 19.—Are there too many houses of worship in Palo Alto? And if so, should some of the smaller churches be consolidated? These ques tions were discussed at a meeting of church men held last night under tha auspices of the Congregational Men's club, and as a result a plan was launched for the consolidation of all the church clubs in the city. Rev. Roy H. Campbell, pastor of the Congregational enurch, and one of the i speakers at the meeting, openly de clared himself in favor of the consoli dation of the Christian, Baptist and Congregational churchen. Rev. Lewis A. Pier of the Christian church fa vored the plan, but did not think it workable. Rev. Clarence Reed of the Unitarian church said he favored unity, but not organic unity. The Men's club finally passed a reso lution authorizing the president to ap point a representative to confer with the other church men's clubs on the advisability of unification. The male members of the Palo Alto Federation of Churches will hold a meeting tomorrow night, when the sub ject of consolidation will be discussed further.

BANCROFT WILL INSIST ON ACTION Announces Intention to Force Consideration of Spring Valley Resolution When the board of supervisors meets Monday Supervisor Paul Bancroft will insist that action be taken on his res olution calling for condemnation pro ceedings against Spring: Valley. Ban croft so announced yesterday at the meeting of the public utilities com mittee of which he is a member. Sim ultaneously with this announcement came the report that three officials of the water company have arranged to leave the city on extended vacation trips. It waa reported to Mayor Rolph and to several of the supervisors that Pres ident W. B. Bourn of Spring Valley contemplates a trip to Ireland and that Attorney Edward J. McCutchen and Frank B. Anderson have already bought tickets for Japan and will sal! with their wives on the Chiyo Maru March 15. Supervisor Andrew J. Gallagher ad vised the public utilities committee that the report had come unofficially to his ears. "Very well," replied Chairman Vogel sang of the committee, "their departure might serve to simplify matters." Bourn has been mentioned as the official of the company who most stead fastly opposed acceptance of the city's terme. None of the supervisors ap peared to be greatly alarmed when they learned that he was contemplat ing a trip to Ireland. Supervisor Bancroft wished that Im mediate action be taken by the com mittee on his resolution calling for condemnation. "It has been In this committee 30 days; let us take action one way or the other," he urged. He made a motion that it be recom mended to the board, and received a second from Supervisor Daniel Mur phy, but the matter was not pressed to a vote owing to the probability of a tie. It was finally decided that Ban croft should call the resolution out of committee when the board of super visors meets Monday. Another resolution presented by Ban croft calling upon the city engineer to make a list of the Spring Valley properties required by the city was adopted. Mayor Rolph yesterday said that the next step in the water negotiations must be taken by the supervisors, as they have taken the matter Into their hands. It is possible that the plan sug gested by the mayor and opposed by the nine supervisors may again be pre sented to the board Monday, now that Spring Valley has declined arbitration by the state railroad commission. In that case the resolution of the mayor and that of Supervisor Bancroft will be In opposition, one calling for arbi tration and one for condemnation. TRANSPORTATION THEME OF LEAGUE MEMBERSHIP Committee Approves of Embarcadero and Van Hem* Avenue Lines and Fillmore Tunnel Adequate transportation to the expo sition and better service to the outlying: districts were discussed by the trans portation committee of the Civic league in the assembly hall of the Mills build ing yesterday. The Embarcadero line to the exposi tion and the Van Ness avenue lines, one to the exposition grounds and another to the Potrero, were approved. The Stockton street tunnel project and the taking over of the Union street line connecting with the proposed Geary street branch from Market and Stock ton streets were also heartily Indorsed. The association also went on record as favoring the Fillmore street tunnel project. The consensus of opinion of the com mittee was that the mayor and board of supervisors could not make a mis take by extending Geary street branches throughout the city as soon as possible; that, next to an adequate Sierra water supply and power from the mountains, this city is urgently In need of better and more adequate car facili ties, and that. If the outlying districts are not slighted, a bond issue of even as high as $10,000,000 would carry over whelmingly, all of which could be sold in this city. The committee meeting adjourned to reconvene next Thursday. UNIDENTIFIED YOUTH PUTS BULLET IN BRAIN Xotuinp Found on Body Indicate* Who Sutclde May Be—Woman Enter tainer Sought For In the presence of many pedestrians at Sansome and Bush streets yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock an unidentified young man, well dressed and of good appearance, pulled a revolver from his pocket and fired a bullet into his brain. He died on the way to thjs harbor emergency hospital. Besides a pocket knife, a single scrap of paper was found in his pocket. It bore the name of Miss Bert Dallas, who lives at the Yale hotel and is an en tertainer at the Hippodrome dance hall. The coroner's office force and the police endeavored vainly to find her last night. It is believed she can identify the suicide and perhaps explain what motive prompted him to take hie life. The man wore a blue serge suite, a dark derby hat and United States army underwear. He wai smooth shaven and had a heavy growth of dark hair. The revolver with which he killed himself was a 32 caliber Smith & Wesson. The police secured the names of three witnesses. They are James Friedlander of the Anglo-Paris bank, W. Alvererlo, 1241 Twenty-third street, and Henry Morris, 1747 Post street. The body has been removed from the harbor emerg ency hospital to the morgue.
