The STERLING TypewriteNhiaranteed for One Year=25.00
For years people have been looking for an INEXPENSIVE typewriter possessing these cardinal virtues, viz—Perfect Align
, ment—Visible Writing—Writing in any Language. The machine is here—at Bamberger’s. It is THE STERLING TYPEWRITER—
I made in Newark—fully guaranteed for one year. Price, $25.00. The typewriter is not an untried article. For two years it has been
put to severe tests, proving durability that is unequaled. It has all the improvements that any other machine has, namely: visible
writing, margin release, a back spacer, two colored ribbons, automatic paper feed and double margin stops. There are no type bars to
spring and twist. All the characters are on a type-wheel, which may be instantly removed. Type-wheels with characters in Spanish, German, Greek, Portu
guese, as well as English, may be had. Standard keyboard, giving 90 characters, furnishing three fractions and three other characters in excess of most
typewriters. To the average business man, professional man and others an expenditure of $100 for a typewriter is unwarranted,. Here is where the Sterling
fits in. See it demonstrated on the first floor, rear of store. A remarkable typewriter for $25.00

Helping ‘Cause’
the Year Round
Mrs. Maude W. Park.
BOSTON, April 22.—Mrs. Maude W.
Park is chairman of the Boston
Woman Suffrage party, and as such
is about the busiest suffragist in
Massachusetts. She works for “the
cause” the year round.
As a member of the legislative
committee of the State association
much of Mrs.'^Park's most valuable
work has been done. It has been said
that she is the only woman the dis
criminating Bay State legislators like
to hear.
Mrs. Park is one of the directors
of tfie Boston City Federation of
Women's Clubs, and is active ip the
work of the Conference Commission
for Moral Education.
BOSTON, April 22.—A ten-year con
test between the United States gov- j
ernment and the heirs of John S.
Fay, of Falmouth, was decided in
favor of the government today by a
decision of Judge Aldrich in the
United Stages Circuit Court of Ap
peals, awarding two water-front
acres at Woods Hole to the govern
ment for the benefit of the United
States fish hatchery. The late Mr.
Fay bequeathed the land to the gov
ernment for that purpose, with the
condition that if it were not so used
it Was to revert to the heirs.
The lot remained undeveloped, and
in 1903 Henry R. Fay, one of the
heirs, ordered the Federal keeper off
the land. The State courts formally
disBDSScssed the keeper, but the heirs
lost their contention in the Federal
Court, the decision in which was up
held today.
NEW YORK, April 22. — George
Ferns, John Thompson and Charles
Franklin, said by the police to be old
in the game of “wire-tapping," were
arrested in Ferns's Bretton Hall
apartment hotel, at Eighty-sixth
street , and Broadway, yesterday,
charged with grand larceny.
The proposed victim of the alleged
wire-tappers was Charles White, who
is in the foundry business in Chatta
nooga. White, who says Ferns pro
posed to him to “beat the races,” told
the police, and the men were allowed
to rob him of $500 Then Detective
Briarton, posing as a friend of
White, was brought into the game
The band planned to get $25,000
BOSTON. April 22.—An investiga
tion of the "white slave" traffic in
this State by a committee of five
members of the legislature, with
sweeping powers, is provided for by a
bill whhsh became law when Gover
nor Foss attached his signature last
evening. The sum of $10,000 is appro
priated to pay the expense of the in
vestigation. The committee is em
powered to summon Witnesses, books
and papers, and is to report January
1 next.
Secretary of State’s Plan
Based on “Sober Second
Thought” of Mankind.
WASHINGTON, April 22.—William
J. Bryan, secretary of state, is about
to launch his first distinctive policy
of international importance. It is a
plan for promotion of world peace
which contemplates the negotiation
of treaties between the United States
and all the civilized nations of the
earth. It will have as its most
) original feature a temporary limita
tion upon the armament and war
preparations of disputing nations.
Mr. Bryan already has discussed
his plan informally with members of
the Senate committee on foreign re- •
iations and has asked for a hearing
before that commttte on next Wednes
day to present the, project in detail.
He Wins Senate Approval.
Democratic members of the Senata
who have heard of this important
move on the part of the Commoner
first regarded the scheme as more or ^
less visionary and impracticable, but
as they have talked it over with him
they have come to look with greater
favor on his views and are prepared
now to give serious consideration to
pph* nlnn nima of fH#
xiiu *-»» ,f “*» “***— --
end that the Taft scheme of general
arbitration treaties had. In fact,
Mr. Wilson’s secretary of state seems
to be imbued with the desire to pick
the Taft movement up where it was
wrecked and by avoiding the fea
tures to which the Senate objected
and by adding a few new ones of hia
own to carry it through to a suc
cessful conclusion.
“Sober Second Thought.
Members of the Senate have learned
as yet only a general outline of the
Bryan plan, but that Is sufficient to
indicate that Mr. Bryan, like Secre
tary Knox, of the Taft administra
tion, hopes to promote world peace
through setting up International ma
chinery which will open the way for
nations to cool oft in times when pas
sions are running high and will af- •
ford an opportunity for a second
thought. In fact, the Bryan policy
already is being referred to as that
of “the sober second thought.”
Mr. Brydn’s plan, it is understood,
contemplates the negotiation of ar
bitration treaties which will provide
for the reference of all questions of •
dispute, including those of vital in
terest and national honor, to an in
ternational court of inquiry. The
findings of this court, as members
of the Senate understand the plan,
are to be merely findings of fact and
are not to be binding on either na
But pending the arbitration the
disputing nations, under the terms
of the proposed treaties, will be
bound to make no change in their t
military strength or status—not to
increase their armament, mobilise
troops or in any way alter the mili
tary policy as It existed at the be
ginning of the controversy.
I’lan Based on Delay.
The entire groundwork of the
Bryan plan seems to consist in the
idea that if contesting nations only
have the opportunity for a calm sec
ond thought and are relieved from
the incidental irritation that comes
from war preparations, the chances
are that armed conflict will be
CHICAGO. April 22.—John Dillon,
noted many years ago in Chicago as
a comedian, and known among actors
as "the best laugh-getter” in the pro
fession. died last night at the home
of his daughter. The cause of death
wte pneumonia. He was in his prime
at the time of the great Chicago fire »
in 1871 and attracted thousands of
persons daily to the old Academy of
Music in Halsted street. He retired
from the stage about fifteen years
ago. He was 81 years old.
NEW YORK, April 22.—Frederic
Thompson, the theatrical manager,
who was formerly the husband of
Mabel Taliaferro, the actress, was
married yesterday to Selina Wheat
Pilcher, a modiste, who was a friend
of his sohool days. His former wife
obtained a divorce from him in Chi
cago last year, alleging cruelty.
HAVANA. April 22.—The Senate
and House in joint session last night
solemnly proclaimed General Juan
Mario Menocal and Enrique Jose
Varona elected president and vice
president of the republic respectively.
They will be inaugurated at noon on
