Raker then introduced Shepherd of Texas, who said: "On behalf of Rep. Hobson Sen. and m.yself I accept the honor of intro ducing into both houses of congress a bill for nation-wide prohibition as a sacred trust. I "am, and always have been a foe of the liquor traffic. I am opposed to It because it Is the chief enemy of the mother, the wife and the child. I fight It because of the homes it has destroyed, the chil dren it has killed, the men It has murdered and the women It has de bauched. I will do everything in my power to aid In the enactment of the constitutional amendment which you come here today to seek." Rep. Hobson did not speak owing to a cold. Declaring that the liquor traffic in "prohibition states" is continuing with almost the same intensity as before the legislation against it, for mer Gov. Patterson of Tennessee de manded national action against the liquor evil. This Christian republic has no right to continue a partnership with an indecent and disloyal business," be declared. The meeting was closed with an in vocation by Rev. J. Fcrrest Pretty man, chaplain of the senate. Then the two thousand shivering men and women made a rush for the nearest lunchrooms for hot coffee.

William Deer in?, the Harvester manufacturer, died Tuesday night at Miami, Fla., his win ter home, according to a message re ceived here by associates. Mr. Deering went t Miami several weeks ago, accompanied by the mem bers of his immediate family. He had been ill for a few months and went outh to escape the rigors of winter and in the hope his health would he benelited. He failed grad ually. Mr. Deering was born f-t outh i Paris, Maine, April 25, IS 26, of a. Puritan family, which was established in America in 16 3 4. His father was I a manufacturer of woolens. Mr. Deering early gave up tho study of medicine to enter a commercial life. After several years in li is native town as a manufacturer he became in terested in western lands, of which he became a large owner. In lSCr, with Seth M. Milliken, he formed in Port land, Me., the lirm of Deering, Milli ken & Co., which became one of the largest drygoods commission houses in the country Visiting Chicago in 1S70, Mr. Deer ing met E. H. Gammon, an old Maine i acquaintance, who was engaged in j selling agricultural machinery. With; him he formed the lirm of Gammon x: Deering. Nine years ing became the sole later Mr. Deer owner of the business. Itiskcd Fortune on Hinder. In 1S79 and 18S0 Mr. Deering at the risk of his fortune put on the mar ket a grain binder invented by .1. F. Applebv, which automatically bound the sheaves with twine. This ma- chine lacked much in the first year of being a complete success, but today almost all of the grain harvested by ! machinery is gathered by it. This i process was jeopardized for a time j bv the failure to lind a twine adapted to the use of the binder. A successful twine was finally manufactured from Manila fibre. In 1S74 tho Deering factory was moved from Piano, HI., to Chicago, where 9,000 operatives are now em ployed. In the Deering inter ests were merged with tho Interna tional Harvester Co. Mr. Deering admitted his two sons and his son-in-law to partnership and in 1901 ho retired from active work, i his winter home.
