New Suffrage Bill Introduced by

It provides that “every femals

Strong Plea in Stirring Speech Be
fore Just Government League.
Mrs. Kent To Speak at Heme of Mrs
i J shown Next Friday.
The Ju*t Governmtnt League of
Annapolis,meeting *n the upp* r rooms
1 of the Advertiser Building on Monday
afternoon, was happy in hearing one
of the very best suffrage talks that
' has been made before that body dur
ing the year, and it was regretted
that a larger number of women could
not listen to the practical and direct
. app.nl of the Rev. J. G. Mythen, of
Mr. Sly then had some scolding
for Suffrgista, as it was n family
gathering, and regretted that women
Ehould have launched the suffrage
movement with the slogan of “Jus
tice" instead cf the higher ideal of
“Service.” JMr. Mythen regard# it
as a distinctly religious and regene
lative movement,and rpoke stirring
!y of the world-wide fght now on
between righteousness Bnd commer
cialized vice, in which true rn°n
need the support and awakened in
terest of women. He b.dieVed that
if people were really alive to the
issue, that instead of opposing and
trying to d.feat the bill before the
Legislature to enbmit the question
of suffragt to the vote of the peo
ple. every man and woman would
vigorously support the measure.
Mr. Mvthen regards the work
for suffrage as second to no other,
not even that of the church, believ
ing fully in the divorce of church
and State, he did not believe In Ihe
divorce of morality and statecraft.
It is this belief and justice that has
brought about n disgraceful state of
affairs in our country, and made it
laughing stock to other nations; who
are looking to it for demonstration of
the exetHence and practicability of
Democratic government. He declared
that in Italy, where he has been of
late, that the people were as familiar ’
as himself with he working of
American laws and of the travesties
in their administration.
Mr. Mythen fearlessly laid the re
sponsibility of coprruption at the
door where it belonged, asserting
(hat no brothels were maintained fq*
women, no race tracks opened for
their delectation or greed—liquor
saloons would have t> close if depend
ing on the patronage of women, and
the maintenance of penal institutions
would not be a great tax on the State
if women alone wers the inmates.
After his address Mr. Mythen answer
ed qustlons fr>m the audience with
out hesitation and with adroitness.
When asked what he believed to
be the ground of woman’s opposition
to woman’s suffrage, h; declared he
could not tell, believing as he did
that this is a religious and regenera
tive movement to which thoughtful
women and men had committed tbem
selves'and that its attainments would
be of infinite value lo all people. He
could not understand hm women
who had always stood for purity and
lighteousness could fail to fall into
line and become its champion?.
Among the interested listeners to‘
Mr. Mythtn were Frofessor Johnson,
1 U. 9. N., and Rv. J. L. Fmiley,
who took part in discussions and
supported the cause that had been
so ably presented in it# most whole
some and practical aspct. Uev. J.
G. Mythen shoulJ be heard by a
larger audience of Annapolitans, by
ministers, church workers, social
and civic leaders. After the meet
ing Mrs. Johnson announced that Mrs.
Kent, an interesting and able sup
porter of suffrage, would lunch with
hei in her home on Murray Hill on
Friday next, and afterwards at 3
o’clock speak in her drawing r' om on
suffrage for home. All were invited
to hear her. There will be, at the
usual hour on Monday next, a meet
ing of the Just Goveronment League.

iekes Exc-piien To One-Sup Dance
at Valentine Party—The Ead
Net Yet.
The Warwick Hotel, Newport News,
Vs., was tbs scene of a valentine
dsne* Saturday night and incidental
ly the cause of more unfavorable noto
riety in the navy, which branch of
the service seems, of late, to be com
ing into unenviable publicity through
the prfßs.
J. Pi Kiesecker, a society man of
Virginia, was assaulted in the lobby
>t th Warwick Hotel Sunday morn
ing because Mr. Kiesecker danced the
“one-step” with Mrs. Huff at the
valentine dance. Lieut.-Commander
Charles P. Huff, U. S. N., ordnance
itficer attached to the new battleship
Texas, being completed at Newport
News, whp fined f1k.75 in the Police
Court yesterday, an f invited to leave
•he hotel by the management.
Friends of Mr Kiescckrr announce
that formal charges will be preferred
against the officer with the Navy De
According to friends of Kiesecker,
he was dancing with Mrs. Huff and
the commander was dancing with an
other woman. The officer told Mr.
Kiesecker that he objected. Thinking
that the officer was joking,Kiesecker
laughingly replied, “ Your objection
is overruled.” “But it is not,” de
clared the officer. “You will please
accompany Mr. Huff to her seat.”
The command was obeyed, and it
was thought that the incident was
closed. However, when Mr. Kie
secker entered the hotel yesterday
morning, on his way to breakfast.
Commander Huff, who was standing
in the lobby with hat and gloves on,
invited him to one side. Thinking,
he-says, that the commander was go
ing to apologize to him, Kieseckir
went to the entrance of the green
room and stood with his face turned
Without a word of warning the
officer struck Kieseckei, knocking
him down. Kiesecker arose and was
knocked down again, the officer jump
ing on him and striking him twice on
the head. Again Kiesecker arose,
and again he was knocked down. By
’that time Manager Derr and other
hotel men reached the scene and sep
arated the men. Huff admitted in
ccurt that he threatened to “put
Derr in the hospiigl” if the hotel
man touched him.
When his case was called in court
yvaterday, Huff pleaded guilty, but
the case went to trial. Th officer
said that the dance incident had noth
ing to do with the assault, and that
he hit Kiesecker because the latter
tried to “paw” him. Kiestcker de
r>i* t this statement, saying that had
he been trying to do that he could
have warded off th blow.
The assault created a sensation in
naval and society circles at Newport
News and a report of ft has been
made to the Secretary of the Navy, it
is said. Commander Huff went to
Newport News a few weeks ago, be
ing assigned to duty cn the Texas.
He is from the state if Texas, nut
served much time on the Facific
coast. He is said to be known as a
boxer of ability.

Naval Officer Who Shot Annapolis
Man Gives His Version.
Frank Green, Victim of Affray, Passed
Very Uoeomforrablc Night Bullet
lo Bcdy, is Believed.
The b .ard of investigation detailed
by Superintendent Fullam of the Na
val Academy, to probe the circum
stances oi the shooting of Mr. Frank
Green, Jr., of Annapdis, by Assist
ant Surgeon Ralph W. McDowell, on
Spa ertek Sunday afternoon, conti n
ucd it# sittings today. The meetings
are being held behind closed doors in
the board room of the administration
It is understood that Surgeon Mc-
Dowell, who was released by the civil
authorities on SI,OOO for a hearing
to be held before Police Justice
James D. Feldmeyer next Monday,
was before the investigating body for
some time this morning, and gave in
detail his version of the incidents
leading up to the affray.
Friends of Dr McDowell still in
sist that he did not shjot with the
intention of hitting young Green and,
furthermore, that the trouble came
about as a result of Mr. Green’s ac
tions in maliciously breaking the ice
near wht re people were skating al
though he had been asked not to lo so.
It is also said that insolent remarks
were made.
On the other hand, the friends of
Mr. Green assert positively that the
shooting was deliberate, and the fir
ing of the rifle by the officer followed
threat# made by him that he would
shoot Green if he did not step break
ing the ice. And they further point
to the foct that Mr. Green,in break
ing the ice, was doing nothing more
than pursuing his duty as caretaker <
of the yachts in winter quarters
in Charles street cove,
it wis learned today that the police
officials have another witness to the
shooting. He is Capt. Tom. Mat
thews, colored, master of a bugeye
at anchor in the cove. Matthews, it
is slid, saw the whole affair, and
says that the ice broken by Mr. Green
was too thin to jkate on, and further
that he heard no remarks made by
Green to the officer, although he was
well within hearing distance.
The condition of young Green to
day is reported as not to favorable.
He passed a very restless night, it is
stated, suffering a great deal of
pain, and this morning the wound in
the shoulder was deeding rather
freely. Although it was at first
thought that the bullet did not enter
the body, it is now believed that it
struck at the juncture of the collar
and shoulder bones and took a down
ward course.
Nava! as well as civilian circles
are greatly aroused over the shooting,
and the unusual circumstance incident
thereto. In the city it has caused no
little feeling. There is no doubt but i
that the hearing next Monday will j
attract a large crowd.
