Conference In Washington. On Monday and Tuesday of next week there will be held In Washing ton a two days' conference on the needs of dependent children, opening I with a meeting of the laborers in this field at the White House. The meet ing was called by President Roose velt, and he will welcome the con ferees. Although the Chicago meetings will discuss many phases of the child labor question, their main purpose Is the ad vocacy of the establishment of a fed eral children's bureau, charged with the duty of looking after the Interests of the country's children. This is the purpose of a bill Introduced in the United Slates "senate Jan. 10 by Sen ator Crane of Massachusetts. It aroused merriment among the mem bers of the senate, who amused them selves with puns on the name of Crane, comparing It with that of the stork. Several of the conferees ex pressed Indignation at the senate's levity, declaring that the subject of the bill is one of the most serious mat ters now before the country. Indorsed by President Roosevelt. A bill to establish a national chil dren's bureau was Introduced In the United States senate In the winter of U)05-ti at the request of the national child labor committee. The bill did not came to a vote, although It re ceived the hearty indorsement of Pres ident Roosevelt and the secretary of INSPECTORS NEEDED. Entomologist Herrick Asks Aid in Pro tecting Honey Industry. I desire to call your attention to the situation regarding foul brood of bees In this state. The conditions are becoming more and more serious and need the careiul consideration of every member of the legislature. Tex as Is now the leading honey produc ing state and many thousands of dol lars are Invested In bees. Foul brood is a most destructive disease and Is already causing serious and widespread loss. Unless active steps are taken pretty soon the bee Industry of this state will be seriously Injured, and. In some localities, actually anni hilated. Foul brooJ can be controlled if we had money enough to maintain a thorough Inspection of the apiaries of the state. We have the law and now we need money enough to carry on the Inspection. I have asked for $5000.00 for the ensuing two years. This is reason able and really Is not half enough. We shall have to hire a good man as In spector to look after this work and do the Inspecting. By the time he salary is paid there will not be enough left for his traveling expenses be cause the state Is large. Besides, we ought to have local Inspectors here and there In the state. One man can not hope to cover the whole terri tory and, besides, it will be absolute ly necessary to place a local Inspect or for a few weeks In certain, far away, isolated localities. I wish you would give your care ful attention to this needed work. You will not find a more practical or a more beneficial field In which to aid the people of Texas. Very sincerely yours. GLENN W.

MODEL LICENSE LEAGUE. Its Object EifilAioerHjy-TTeTd e Organization. Louisville, Jan. 21. The National Model License league Is In session here. , The avowed purpose of In? leuguc U to take the Baloon out of politics and keep It there and exclude all law breakers from the retail liquor busi ness whatever the law In their com munltles. The league would submit to the people of each polttical com munal division various questions as to how the majority of them want the liquor trade regulated. "The people do not want prohibition, but they want a reform, and when we prove that we, too, want reform, when we gain the confidence of the nubile, the prohibition wave will recede aid the Anti-Saloon league will find its oc cupation gone." So declared Presi dent T. M. Gilmore. Mr. Gllmore dis cussed reform movements and the pro hibition wave, which he declared to be a protest against things that ought not to be; against conditions that ought not to continue. Mr. Gilmore De carnea along in a less radical way, and that the reforms desired should be brought about without such tre mendous losses as are being entailed through the passage of prohibitory laws. "The people of this country do not want prohibition," he Insisted, "nor do they want the saloon unless the sa loon is properly conducted. "The saloon. If properly conducted. Is a very good convenience, but the sa loon that Is run in connection with gambling, and that violates law, and that sells to minors and to men who nrp Intnxlrafprl la certainly out Of . L. 1,1.

Mr. Gilmore said that if the saloon should be permanently abolished it will be found necessary to provide a substitute, because the strenuous life Incident to modern civilization de mands a place of relaxation, where ! friend can meet friend, and where wor I ries and cares and responsibilities ot life may. for the time being, be put Maft ,.Tne Ant,gtoon league." he con- tinued. "Is not advocating prohibition, hni to one who is familiar with the situation all of this talk about 'dry territory' Is nothing more than an ab surdity. There is no 'dry territory' In this country, although there are a num ber of states and a great many coun ties, aggregating in area probably one half of the United States, In which laws have been adopted prohibiting the sale, and In some cases the manu facture of alcoholic beverages. A law feet the purchase and use of alcoholic beverages any more than a law that mlcht prohibit the sale of cigars would affect the consumption of cigars." i The speaker said that since the pas j sage of prohibition laws in such I states as Georgia and Oklahoma ship i nients of whisky and of beer to those . states have been phenomenally large.

"We also contend that the price paid by the saloonkeeper each year for the privilege of doing business should be reasonable. "We then Insist that, In considera tion of so valuable a license, the pen alty for the violation of law should be mandatory, and that no discretion should be lodged with any Judge or h censing board. "It is our Idea that for the first con viction of the violation of law on the part of a saloonkeeper or of his em ployees In the conduct of his business, his license would be suspended for a period ot thirty days; and that for the second conviction his license should be absolutely cancelled and that he should not again be licensed to re tall liquors in the state."

Two-Cent Railway Fare BUI In troduced In House. Austin, Jan. 21. At Joint meeting of the house and senate committees on rules, the rules in effect by the Thirtieth legislature were adopted for the Thirty-first legislature without a change.

A 2-cent passenger fare bill on Tex as roads was Introduced In the house by Representative Fuller. This bill will meet with determined opposition by railroads, representatives of which are here in full force. This is one of the governor's recommendations in his message.
