night when the entertainment for tl e
benefit of I lie National Junior Republic
the Diet Kitchen and the Associated
Charities as given hy the society mat
rons and maids of Washington under the
direction cf Mrs Albert Clifford Harney
and Mrs Archibald Hopkins
It blazed from pit to dome for never
before was there such an array of dia

had not hastened ilivs and dav s ago to

floor It was reflecteO back and forth
from he bocs and throughout the audi

into the grandest kaleidoscope that the
cenius of man could conceive the scene
of color and btauty would not have iiecii
more entrancing thn was this represen

nation of its fair women and gallant
men assembled in the name of charity
Success it 1oregiiin iiiielu iuii
The spontaneous response of leading
residents of the city as toon as the first
mention of the performance was publicly
made predetermined this success but
hardly the most ortimisllo of all those
to contributed of t ir time their talent
and their inluencc toward ttls end could
have honed for such a magnificent triumph
rs was achieved
The performance was given without a
flaw and the iarticipants acquitted them
selves with such unusual credit that a
society stock company for nrivate ball
room Dcrforrcanccs nest winter would not
be regarded as at all an unusual outcome
by anyone who saw- last evenings court
The audience was not only representa
tive locally it was cosmopolitan If
there Is any member of the Diplomatic
Corps who is not here tonight I do not
know him said one of the popular young
diplomats as he strolled through the
theatre with a shepherdess Just from the
stage during an Intermission
At any rate I will not know him after
this if I find such a one he added It
only proves once more this performance
tonight what we diplomats always have

In the name of charity one may do
unique things and by the same token as
by the wafting of a wand conventional

crowds beyond the hospitable portals cf

It was so last night The playhouse
became the temple of charity all society
tame to pay Its devotion in material
contributions and ephemeral applause
and beautiful women with a taste for the
unusual claimed the pages place in the
foyer and sold programmes and bouton
nlcrcs of the daintiest flowers for a
quarter each or more
If one did not have a 23 cent piece it
Has Just as well to give up willingly a
half dollar or a bill for It was all for
sweet charity you know And even If
enc Is really not aware of what that name
covers he may rest assured that one of
the omissions which Is not regarded as a

there were Just a few feeling just a bit
tremulous lest the performance proper
thould have begun as promptly as pre

few minutes of overture saved them a
great disappointment Hut fortunately
perhaps for their peace of mind they
were unable to appreciate what they lost

The credentials committee has the
honor to report that there has been a
careful verification of the reports of Chap

that each chapter should have full and
just representation
In accordance with the laws governing

in the eleventh continental congress of
the Daughters of the American Revolu

crease of 37 over last jear
Mauj of the chipters hear the honored
names of those noble men and women
who by their patriotic demotion and self
sat rifice through those seven long years
of the American Revolution made the
congress possible It seems most fittinh
that the roll should be called bj chap

sacred names but emrhasizing the record
of historical places
By the lecomrncndatlon of the board
the official reader will call 11 j roll in

Whereas This meeting of the Conti

American Revolution is the first since the
death of the late President McKinley and
Whereas This society represents the
pure American spirit of the women of the

but not license to its citizens therefore
be it
llcsohcd That this Continental Con

crime which remojed from life the late
President MqKlnley and its abiding sym

Resolved That such expressions of
sympathy frem this body be coneyed to
her whose less is unuterable
The resolution was passed unanimously
by standing ote
The report of the programme commit
tee made by Mrs Ceorgc M Sternberg
chairman showed that only a few unim
portant changes had been made ia the one
originally agreed upon With the changes
the report was unanimously adopted
The next matter for consideration was
the questicn cf amendments The hour
was getting late and as the mcetlnf
could not last later than 3 oclock owing
to the entertainment held there last
night it looked as though no action would
be taken in regard to them
Then Mrs Miller of Washington sprung
her surprise by making a motion that the
Congress do not adjourn but take a re
cess The efforts of the national officers
who had been at work among the dele
gates rroved unavailing and the motion
was carried The question can therefore
be considered today and many import
ant amendments which have been held up
for Ecveral years will be acted upon
The announcement of the committed

own goicrnment to formulate laws which
shall bring nearer to perfection its work
ing powers in all chapters making up its
grand union To receive reports from all
parts of America advices of what is be

There has grown up a strong belief
as It is the highest authority the Conti

which any daughter in the society may
seek redresc In fact it may be consid

Appeals of the Daughters cf the American
Another object of the Continental Con

listening to the reading of the reports
from he diffcient States of the work they
have alieady accomplished that which
they arc doing now that which they may

of their failures may be of some value

which she was entrusted last jear by the
Tenth Continental Congress There Jre
many members even among those who
woiked against her election as president
general most assiduously who now admit
that she makes an ideal presiding offi

Of course onr of her former antag

she hasnt had inucii cpportunily as yet

The attendance at ycslcrdavs tessiens

no comparison to the crowd that filled the

of those who after tomorrow will make
their appearance at the Daughters or the

The State regents ut former congresses
occupied seats on the stage This year
they arc assigned to seats In front of tin

One of tic most interesting features o
the annual meetings of the Daughters of
the Amercan Revolution i3 the report of
the number of real daughters or members
whose fat ers fought in the Revolutionary
War There are now about COO of these
enrolled in the society and several of them
are rrcfent at this congress
A movement to Tension these women
of wrom arc poor in worldly goods
has been on foot for some time and Sen
ators Hoar and Lodge of Massachusetts
have promised to lend their aid in secur
ing the passage by Congress of a bill to
this effect

The total iiembership of the society s

members enrolled during the new year
About 00 delegates are present and as
each delegate has an alternate and the
regent of each State cluptcr has -he
rrivilegc of the ileor these and the other
Daughters and visitors ciowd the theatre
to the roof This being the largest con
gress ever held by the society a fall da
will be required to verify ircdentials and
arrange the delegations in their proper
Owing to the constant and rapid growth
I of the society the increasing number of
delegates to the annual congress has be
come a serious problem and it is possible
tnat some amendment to the constitution
of the society will be adopted looking to
restrictions in this line which will reduce
the number of delegates 50 per cent

The Daughters have taken precautions
to have lire nnd police protection at hand
In case necessity should arise to have

her resolution on the death of the late

During the afternoon session the Ala

to occupy scats near the front The re
quest was granted by Mrs Fairbanks it
is complained that the voice of the offi

scarcely be heard at the farther end of
the house
How all the delegates can be accom

An I n e re t i f i u Discussion
One of the questions that came up dur
ing the afternoon yesterday- and claimed
the undivided attention of the Daughters
was the Chapter Warren of Illinois em
broglio Word had been passed around
that the matter would come up during the
afternoon and some members who had
engagements with their dressmakers pre
ferred to forego this most Important mis

the rear of the house rose to their feet
and stood for over fifteen minutes while
the discussion was going on
