“I was motoring with friends last

the more persistently 1 asked my
self: Cannot this old structure be

place where it can be viewed by
millions, as an inspiration to them,

The house is good repair with

Wife's Intuition
Proves True; Jack
Monroe Is Living
COBALT, Ont„ July 9.—A
woman's intuition, which caused her
to refuse to believe a report of her
husband's death although she had no
proof that he was still alive, was
justified today whi n it was establish
ed that the d >ad man was not her
husband but another man of the same
name.
When a prospector named Jack
Monroe was found dead in a cabin
near Rouyn several days ago the
word went out that it was the Jack
.Monroe famed for having stood up
to Jim Jeffries when the latter was
champion of the world. His wife,
however, would not believe her hus
band was dead, although he was out
prospecting and she had not recent
ly heard from him.
Today it was definitely determined
that the dead man was “Little Jack"
Monroe, the coincidence of identical
names and the same occupation ac
counting for the first mistaken re
port that "Big Jack” had died. The
two Jack Monroes were not related.

CHAMBERLAIN,
EX-SOLON, DIES
" ■" .....
Former Oregon Sen
ator Had Been 111
For Long a Time
WASHINGTON. July 9.—<#>—For
mer United States Senator George
E. Chamberlain of Oregon died at
his apartments in the Wardman
Park hotel early today after a
lingeiinr illness.
Mrs. Chamberlain, to whom he was
married two years ago, and his
daughter by his first marriage, Mrs.
George F. Blain of Norfolk, Va., were
at his bedside.
Funeral arrangements for the for
mer senator and member of the Unit
ed States shipping board were not
made, pending arrival of members of
his family.
The former senator surprised his
friends in Washington in July, 1926,
when he quietly went to Norfolk and
was married to Mrs. Carolyn B.
Shelton, who had been clerk of the
senate military affairs committee.
Mr. Chamberlain at the time gave
his age as 72 and his bride gave hers
as 49.
George Earle Chamberlain reached
the peak of his public life when he
was called upon to head the work
of the senate military committee
during the trying days of the World
war.
As chairman of that committee,
which framed legislation staggering
to the imagination of n nation in
ured to the pursuits of peace, he
probably was as close as any men
to the inner workings of the organi
zation which guided America vie-1
toriously through the struggle.
The draft act. which brought its
millions of men into th ranks, was
the one factor looked up©- by Sen-!
ator Chamberlain as assuring the
winning of the war. Before its in
troduction, he had offered a com
pulsory service bill, and throughout'
the war and afterward he contended
that his own measure.,which threw
the question open to debate, was re
sponsible for the success, of the
legislation finally enacted. His own
idea, he said, came from an almost
forgotten document in the war de
partment archives written by Major
General Emory Upton, a C ivil war
commander.
Attacks Wtison
After taking on an amount of work
during the war that would have
exhausted a man of less physical j
endurance. Senator Chamberlain
crossed swords with President Wil
son. leader of his own party, in
1913 when he publicly c-'iarged that
the war department had ceased to
function. An open letter from Pres
ident W ilson followed and the con
troversy was carried to the floor of
the senate wheic the Oregon senator
delivered a three hour* speech in
support of his position.
One of the measures in which
Senator Chamberlain took pride was
that revising the Articles of War. i
This legislation, ho contended, elim
inated the “Prussian idea of ftbso-1
lute power to the men rt the top"I
and "liberalized and democratized-’ i
the articles.
The National Defense Act of 1916.|
in the preparation of which he was
identified, was urged by him as the
