Washington. March 3 Women to-
day made on Pennsylvania avenue in
the capital of the country her specta
cular parade appeal for suffrage. In
the marching ranks were many of the
, most prominent women of the United
States, women who have given the
greater part of their lives to the suff
rage work, and women also who only
recently have given their fealty to
the cause. The wives of senators
uiid representatives and of other men
in high position in the government
service had peaces in the line. It was
.n parade of devotees and it was in size
and iu effect that the women had
promised it should be
There were thousands of women
and hundreds of men in the proces
ion which made its way up Pennsyl
vania avenue from the capitol to a
point beyond-the White House. There
was a succession of "floats" in the
olumn representing the progress of
the cause of woman's suffrage; labor
conditions which it is sought to bet
tor; what woman has done in war;
the woman in peace, and the woman
in all the varied, activities of life.
Planned by Prominent Women
Mrs. Champ Clark, wife of the
speaker of the house, was one of the
hard laborers to make the event live
up to its promise. Working with her
were Mrs. Harvey W. Wiley, wife of
the government's former chief chem
isf; Mrs. Jchn Rogers. Jr- a sister-in
law of Secretary of War Stimsor;
. Mrs. Robert M.- La Follette, wife of
the Wisconsin senator, and scores of
other women prominent on their own
account and doubly prominent per
haps because of the official positions
occupied by their husbands or other
men members of their families.
General' Rosalie Jcncs and her
small army of "hikers" who marched
all the way from New York City to
tlie capital in behalf of the suffrage
cause, were given a chief place of
honor in the marching throng. The
procession was led by Miss Inez Mil-
holland of New York, to whom her sis
ter suffragists gracefuMy accorded the
meed of greatest beauty. Miss Milho!

Squelched by a Rigid Enforce

San Francisco, March 2-With an
extra company of police on hand to
carry out the edict, new orders of the
police commission restricting the no
torious Harbary Coast were . applied
exactly at midnight.
No defiance was visible, and grad
ually the great crowd of sightseers
that had assembled to witness the
funeral," as it was termed on the
coast," melted away. -Hereafter,
the police say, there is
to be a dividing line between.. the
cafes of "Bohemia" and their coun
terfeits the dives. The dance halls
on Pacific street that won for that
thoroughfare the sobriquet "Terrific
street" will be closed to slumming
parties that include women.
Only the women regularly employ
ed in these places, at stipulated sal
aries, will be allowed inside, and the
proprietors say their revenue will be
cut more -than 50 per cent
Promptly at midnight last night all
the women visitors were requested to
cave and most of them did- , No
more were allowed to enter The
crowd,, which was estimated " to. be
arger than any that had toured "Bar-
bary" for a year, quickly disappeared.
Above the doors of the Tlance halls
the red and white lights blinked out
and by 1 o'clock the quiet which the
police commission says will be per

Commissioner Conant.Says Company
Has Been Monopolistic and Un
fair Competitive Methods. ,,
Washington. March 3. Luther Con
ant, Jr., commissioner of corporations,
today submitted to the president his
report on the International Harvester
company, a long and exhaustive docu
ment which concludes witH the state
ment that the company's position in
the industry is chiefly due to a monop
olistic combination in the harvester
machine usiness, certain unfair com
petitive methods and superior com
mand cf capital.
i The report shows that the 'five con
cerns that consolidated in 1902 had
been in keen competition, but that this
competition had not been destructive
as at least four of them has been mak
ing good profits. The ner company,
says jVIr. Conant, was able to maintain
its monopolistic position and extend
on a large scale Into new lines of
the farm machinery industry, in part
by the acquisition of seme of its chief
rivals in the harvesting machine busi
ness; in part by using its monopolist
ic advantage in these line:3 to force
tne sale of its new lines; In part by
certain objectionable competitive
methods, and especially through its ex
ceptional command of capital, itself
the result of combination. The com
missioner found that the value of the
physical properties that worn involved
in the consolidation plus the working
capital covered substantially 90 per
cent of the capital stock issued, so
there can be no charge of great over
capitalization. The earnings' of the
company have shown a marked" increase.

minds of all who witness it. In point
of brilliance of decoration, in the mat

It is going to be a splendid inaug

hosts, any more than a blizzard or
rainstorm will be. able to mar the
most important feature of the inaug

The illumination of the capital by
means of millions of electric lamps
promises to be a show in itself. Penn
sylvania avenue from the capitol to
the treasury will resemble a fairyland.
At 100-foot .intervals the avenue has
been arched with festoons of lights.
From each festoon there are three
pendant colored lights, which gives
the broad thoroughfare the appear
ance . of . being roofed with brilliant.
glowing bulbs. The court of honor,
epposite Lafayette park, and the
Union station plaza are also the cen
ters of brilliant schemes of illumina
tion. At night a big searchlight is
to play on the capitol, making it vis
ible fcr miles around. There also will
be lighting effects on the Washington
monument and on all the prominent
public buildings.
