THE IJARRE DAILY TIMES, BAURE, VT., MONDAY, .'FEBRUARY.; 1G, 1914.
3 The White and BlackPebbles By SARAH BAXTER "Bob, my dear boy, I congratulate kAll I An ........ n.i.r.l ....n.il.lf Clara Deune." ' s "Tbnuk you, Dave. I appreciate your congratulations more tbau those f any otber of my friends." These two sentences were spoken by two cadets of tbe graduating class of 3S2 at the Military academy at West J'olnt. 'Robert Harker did not-know what the congratulations cost his friend David Wartield. Both cadets had been attentive to tbe same girl, but neither knew that the otber bad proposed to her. She did not tell tbe one she ac cepted that she bad been obliged to decide between bhu and bis friend. And so it was that tbe woman was the only one who knew the fact. Eighteen years passed, during which time tbe two officers bad not served at tbe same military station, though once tbey met at Washington. Barker's family was not with him. and War Jield was still unmarried. Nineteen years after tbey had graduated tbe Mexican war broke out and both were ordered south Darker to the Rio Grande with General Taylor, Wartield j to Vera Cruz with General Scott During Scott's advance, to Mexico City, Involving a series of battles in iwbich tbe Americans were always vic torious, Wartield was of great valne to the commanding general in nil matters pertaining to the science of engineer ing. When, the army approached the City of Mexico, desiring to get a view of the enemy's defenses, he appropriat ed tbe uniform of a Mexican officer iwbo bad been made a prisoner and worked his way to the rear of the Mexican army. Be took with blm a young soldier barely eighteen years of nge with a view of sending back any Information be might acquire, In case lie could not get back himself. The youngster put- on Ae uniform of a dead Mexican corporal. It was ar ranged between tbe two that they should address each otber as "captain" and "corporal" only. One day Captain Warfield was stand ing on tbe edge of a wood, behind a tree against which be was resting a spyglass which he bad leveled at tbe fortifications of tbe City of Mexico The corporal stood behind, walking to and fro in the wood with a view to warning the captain against surprise. Suddenly u troop of Mexican horsemen came galloping toward tbem. The cor porn I gave a warning signal, but too late. From a distance tbe Mexicans saw a man examining tbelr fortiflca tions through a spyglass. Riding up to the captain, the com mander of the troop questioned him. Warfield spoke but little Spanish and could give no satisfactory account of himself. Both be aud tbe corporal brought before the Mexican command er. After an examination a drum bead court martial was convened, and tbey were tried as spies. Tbey were soon convicted and sentenced to be garroted, but owing to tbe fact that they were Americans, where garrot lng was not practiced, tbe sentence was commuted to shooting. The two were confined in the same prison. The night before tbelr exe cution the corporal called for writing material that be might write a letter of farewell to his mother. He bad finished and addressed it when Cap tain Warfield saw it and read tbe ad dress. "Great heavens!" be exclaimed, pal ing. "What is it captain?" asked the otber. "You are a son of Robert Barker of the th cavalry?'' "I am." "And ypur mother as a girl was Clara Deane?' "She was." Tbe dialogue was Interrupted by the entrance of a Mexican officer, who said to the two condemned men: "Our commander bas decided that but one need suffer in order to carry out the necessity of striking terror Into an enemy for such illegitimate war fare. He bas directed tbat you two men draw lots to deter ir'ne which shall be shot I have a white and a black pebble here which I place In my bat Tbe one drawing the white peb ble will be exchanged as a prisoner of war; tbe otber will be Immediately ex ecuted." "Being a commissioned officer." said the captain, "while my fellow prisoner Is a private. 1 demand tbe right to draw the Debbie to decide which of ns Is to suffer." Tbe officer held out tbe bat to bim; be thrust in his hand and immediately drew It out clinched. Going to a win dow, with the otber hand be drew forth a pebble and held it up to tbe light It Wits black. Tbe Mexican officer in tbe excite ment of the moment of life and death forgot the otber pebble and placed his hat on bis bead without withdraw ing it A platoon of soldiers was waiting without for tbe loser, and Captain War field was Immediately led out and fthot. A few minute later tbe man who h'nd placed the pebbles in tbe hat remembered the white stone.

DEAD End , Comes Suddenly Fol lowing What Seemed Improvement SENATE SHOCKED BY THE NEWS President Wilson Will Speak at the Funeral Service Washington, Feb. 10. Augustus Oe tavius Bacon, United States senator from Georgia for nearly 19 years, and chair man of the foreign relations committee since the ascendancy of the Democratic party March 4, 1913, died in a hospital here Saturday after an illness of 10 days. He was the first United States senator elected by direct vote of the people un der the 17th constitutional amendment. Though Senator Bacon bad been se riously ill with kidney trouble and com "plications developing from a broken rib, his death was unexpected. It came sud denly at 2 o'clock in the afternoon and news of the end fell as a shock upon the Senate while it was in executive ses- .i(.i. 1 lie immediate cause ot the sena tor's death was diagnosed as a blood clot in the heart. Throughout the morning lie had been in good spirits and it was announced to his colleagues that be was feeling better than for several nays rhyysicians had determined that an op (ration which had been contemplated was unnecessary, Despite nis 7a years, it appeared that the affliction from which lie suffered was of recent origin and specialists believed it would yield to treatment, litis conclusion relieved con siderably the anxiety of his friends and associates in Congress. Half an hour before his d?ath, the senator talked with his daughter, Mrs, W. B. Sparkes of Georgia. She had just left the room when he raised himself iu bed. As Mrs. Sparkes entered the room her father fell back m collapse. He ncv er regained consciousness. In the ab sence of Senator Hoke Smith of Georgia, (senator overman was notified and pro ceedings in the Senate were abruptly halted when the Xorth Carolina senator announced the death. A brief resold tion of respect was adopted and the Sen' ate adjourned. For several minutes the senators, shocked at the sudden tidings, remained in the chamber discussing what should be ' done, but later arrangements were made for a public funeral to be held in the Senate chamber Tuesday afternoon at 11 o'clock to be attended by the Ken ate and House of Representatives, the president of the United States and his cabinet, justices of the supreme court members of the diplomatic corps, the admiral of the navy and chief of staff of the army-. Hie scene on the floor of the Senate was unusual. Xot only had the death of their colleague shocked the sen ators, but the effect of his loss at a time when important foreign relations were pending at once impressed itself upon the minus of .Democratic and Republican leaders. DR. ANNA SHAW BREAKS LEG. The Woman's Sights Leader Falls While Alighting from a Train. New. York, Feb. 16. Eev. Dr.' Anna Tf. Shaw, nresident of the National American Woman's Suffrage association, and one of the foremost workers for votes for women in this country, was badly injured when she fell while alight ing from a train at a Jersey I lty rail road terminal lute Saturday. She slipped under a car after the train had come to a stop and broke her right leg. An X-ray examination showed that the large bone was fractured and the other bone very badly splintered. Dr. Shaw was removed in a taxicab to the hotel where Bhe lives in New York City. She was suffering greatly Saturday night, but was bearing up bravely and her con dition was not considered serious. She is 67 years old, Saturday having .been her birthday. the mishap made it necessary for Dr. IShaw to abandon proposed out-of-town trips in the interests of equal suffrage. She was to have left New York Satur day night to address a congressional committee in Washington to-day, and on Tuesday she had planned to start with Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt for Tex as to take part in a suffrage campaign in that state. When she was injured Saturday, Dr. Shaw was returning from a suffrage pil grimage in northern New York. She was accompanied by Mrs. Catt.- A por ter placed a foot-box at the steps of the ear they were in. Two men tried to catch Dr. Shaw when she lost her foot ing, but their sudden grasp only wrenched her shoulder. REMOVING SNOW IN BOSTON. Street Railway Officials Estimate It Will Cost $60,000.

Advt. 1,197,892 ALIENS ADMITTED IN 1913 Which Is Several Hundred Thousand More Than Were Admitted in j Any Previous Year. Washington, D. C, Feb. 10. Cominis sioncr General Caminetti cf the bureau of immigration in his first animal re port, submitted to-day to Secretary Wil son, recommended certain modifications of the Chinese exclusion net, and ex pressed the opinion that great care should be taken with the "seamen's" bill pending in Congress, declaring that "the seaman's bill on the one band and the immigration and Chinese exclusion laws on the other cannot be properly enforced unless their tenns are brought into sub stantial and practical accord." Commissioner Caminetti made no ref erence to the general question of Asiatic immigration, other than a comment. on "aliens employed on vessels" and what he-says is the danger of Chinese and other Asiatics getting in unlawfully by serving as seamen and deserting. As to Japanese immigration, he ex presses doubt as to whether the "photo graph" brides after having gone through a marriage ceremony by proxy, recog nized as legal in Japan, are really en titled to admission. He says he does not believe "any such marriage is bind ing upon the Inited States in the ad ministration of immigration laws; and also that there is no treaty with Japan. or other arrangement whatsoever, that provides for the recognition by the United States of the so-called marriage of a woman in Japan with a man who may be in the Liuted States at the' al leged date of the same." He says there seems to be need of repetition and em phasis of the statement in the former commissioner general's report, which de clared that the practice of admitting such women "opens the way for the. in troduction into continental I nited States of large bodies of common laborers fe males, it is true, but none the less com petitors of the laborers of this countrv; and this practice must necessarily result in constituting a large native-born Jap anese population, persons who, because of their birth on American soil, will be regarded as American citizens, although their parents cannot be naturalized." Despite the fact that everything pos sible under existing law is being done. said Mr. Caminetti, to prevent the entry of Chinese not entitled to be here. Chinese laborers are constantly gaining admission, in the guise of minor sons of merchants, students, natives, or sons of natives. No one would dispute the propriety and advisability of permitting young men ot the Chinese race to obtain a higher education in this countrv," he adds, "provided the privilege is so safe guarded as to prevent its abuse. But this claim of a student status, now adopted muoh more frequently than for merly, is often used as a mere cloak for the introduction into this country, in violation of the spirit of the law. of young Chinese laborers. As to these Chinese who came in un der the" "United States citizen" class, bet ing returning natives who had been born here, or born abroad of native-born par ents, the commissioner general says there were 4,3i0 of that class in the past four years, and added: thus it may be demonstrated that the number of United States citizens of the Chinese race is increasing at a very rapid rate, although persons of the Mon golian race cannot acquire citizenship by naturalization. The present law permit ting United States commissioners to make citizens should be repealed. Amer ican citizenship is a proud privilege of inestimable value and of the highest dig nity and should not be granted except pon clear evidence of right thereto and the title to same passed upon either by court of record or by the bureau of nimigration, with the approval of the department of labor." As to deportation cases, the commis- ioner general declared figures showed the supreme court's decision of 1912 that "Chinese, like all other aliens, who liter surreptitiously, are subject to de portation bv the administrative proc esses provided in the general hnmigra- ion laws, was now producing most vani llic results. He contend that the three-year limitation on the right to de port Chinese, if here unlawfully, should le "removed in so far as it affects hincse." The employment of aliens on vessels entering ports here, he says, "hns al ways led. directly or indirectly, to nu merous and flagrant violations of both lie immigration and the Chinese exeln ion laws." He pointed out that durin-z the year between 3..000 and 40,000 ( hi nese sailors entered ports here, and the rule of giving bond for shore leave, he eclareel, is honored in the breach as much as in the observance." He con tended that the law should require all Asiatics lawtullv here to have a cer- ticate of identification, by which the introduction of the Asiatic into the country by surreptitious methods would soon become too expensive to be prof itable. The report shows that 1.1!7.R92 aliens were admitted last year, more than the total for the preceding year by 309,720. J. J. KENNEDY A SUICIDE Treasurer of New York State Took Own Life FEARED GRAFT INVESTIGATION Was to Be a Witness in John Doe Proceedings To-day. BulTalo, Feb. Ifi. John J. Kennedy, state treasurer of Xew York, committed suicide in his apartment at the Markeeti hotel yesterday.

A razor lay beside him. Kennedv was to go to Xew York to-day to testify at the John Doe gratt investigation. Sat urday he spent the afternoon with sev eral close political friends, Kennedy was found by his son. He died before a doc tor arrived.

STRIKE INQUIRY IS AT A DEADLOCK Question Is Whether Committee Shall .Investigate Christmas Eve Disaster at Calumet, Mich. HaneoVk, Midi., Feb. 1.-Fi ruling the congressional sub-committee which is in vestigating the Michigan copper strike deadlocked on the question of making a full inquiry into the Italian hall disaster at Calumet on Christmas eve, Chairman 'lavlor Saturday sent a telegram to Rep resentative Foster, chaimiaft of the House committee on mines and mining, urging the necessity of the immediate presence of . Representative Hamlin of Missouri, the absent committeeman. It developed Saturday night that Chairman Taylor and Congressman Casey of Penn sylvania have decided that it is within the province of the committee to admit into the record everything pertaining to the seven subjects under inquiry. Several days ago O. X. Hilton of counsel for the Western Federation of Miners asked for a complete investigation of the Calumet disaster as having an im portant bearing on the deportation of Charles II. Mover and C. 11. Tanner, two nights later. Mr. Taylor and Mr. Casey agreed that the request should be com plied with, although Representative Howell of Utah, the only Republican member there at this time, expressed himself as opposed to raking up again all the disagreeable details of the calam ity. Xo answer had been given to Mr. Hilton when Representative Switzer of Ohio, another Republican, arrived and the proposition was submitted to him. Mr. Switzer agreed with-Mr. Howell, and as Mr. Taylor and Mr. Casey had not changed their minds there appeared to be no hope of reaching an agreement in the absence of the tilth member. An urgent message was therefore sent to Chairman Foster of the full committee at Denver, requesting the attendance of Mr. Hamlin. The latter is a Demo crat. , A short session Saturday was devoted by the committee to hearing six more strikers, who gave testimony a to work ing conditions in the mines, vhi'eh they described as bad. When the committee adjourned until this morning, counsel for the strikers stated that they bad 100 more witnesses who Mere ready to tell similar stories if the committee desires to hear them. Should the 'committee decide to-day that it has heard enough evidence from the strikers' side, along the line to which a .week's time has al ready leen devoted, another subject will be gone into. Foster Telegraphs to Hamlin. Representative Foster, chairman of the House mines committee, Saturday night at Denver, Col., telegraphed Representa tive Hamlin of the committee to proceed immediately to Hancock, .Mich., to break the deadlock in the sub-committee of the mines committee on the question of a lull investigation oi the Italian hull disaster. In the event Mr. Hnniliu could not 'start nt once. Mr. Foster, in a sec ond telegram, instructed Representative ravlor of Arkansas, to go to the assist ance of the sub-committee at Hancock. p.

It de prives the Senate of one of its oldest and most experienced members, a man who held something like reverence to the traditions of the great body of which he was so long a part, and who sought in all he did to maintain its standards of statesmanship and service.

DANDRUFF COVERED PROPOSE TO CORRECT LOAN SHARK EVIL Industrial Finance Corporation Organ ized fo Be in Charge of Local Insti tutions for Loaning Money. Xew York, Feb.' 15. With the pur pose Of correcting the loan shark evil throughout the country by making it possible for deserving persons of small means to borrow money at reasonable rates and without collateral, there was incorporated at Richmond, Va., Satur day a company known as the Industrial Finance eornoration. To accomplish its end the ney company, which, is incor porated under authority of the Virginia state corporation commission with a capital of WKM.fiOO, will facilitate and assist financially the organization throughout the country of local insti tutions which will afford industrious and needy wage-earners and all other small borrowers the opportunity for borrowing small sums of money on just and fair terms, and at the same time promote savings among its patrons. As formally expressed in the charter, the object of the company is to encour age and assist in the organization of local instittions in every city of suffi cient size throughout the country that will. . "First: Provide for the worthy wage earner and other small borrower where the need of the loan is apparent, oppor tunity for borrowing small sums of money without the necessity of sub mitting to the extortion of money lend ers, but at rates which are reasonable to the borrower and yet fairly remun erative to capital; to enable the small borrower to secure such moneys largely upon the faith of endorsements and guarantees and without requirement of a pledge of chattels as collateral secu rity for repayment, and "Second: To provide opportunity for the systematic investment of small sav ings, bearing a higher rate of interest than is now feasible and affording a bas is for the securing of credit and thus to encourage thrift." . According to the formal announcement made to-day, the corporation has ac quired all the assets of the Fidelity cor-; pom t ion of America, which has hereto fore had the so4c right to the "Morris Plan" of industrial sayings and loans, every expression and every form of wljieh is covered by copyrights. The plan was originated "by Arthur J. Mor ris and bis law' firm Messrs. Morris, (iarnett & Cotton, of Xorfolk, Va.', and the first institution to operate under the plan was btunched about four years ago at Xorfoik. The man who needs money but lucks such collateral as is required by existing financial institutions has hitherto been forced to seek loans from either the pawn broker or the chattel mortgage man. These lenders are of two classes, the beneficient ami the rapacious, the latter class being generally known as loan sharks. Organizations such as the Provident Loan Society of New York and the chat tel mortgage societies have done con siderable good to individuals of this un fortunate sort, to-dav's announcement sets forth, but their operations requir ing a pledge or mortgage ot chattels does not touch the still larger field where the evil of usury continues to thrive. . The "Morris Plan" means the exten sion of honorable borrowing facilities and instructive savings facilities to the masses: it means tliat hereafter the wage-earner, or other small borrower or" sound character, in time of need will be able to obtain monev on terms con venient and lair; it means that here after the honest individual will' find a premium placed upon his habits of thrift that'will become for him a basis for credit he has never before enjoyed. The nrnipi.t if tint a charity and the patrons of the local instftutio'ns will in no sense be objects of charity. The pur pose is to conduct all the operations on a strictly business basis so as to afford uch a fair return on the capital em ployed 'as would be expected from a fi nancial institution operated tinder a conservative management. Dividends of each of the local institutions, however, will be limited to six per cent, on the book value of the capital stock, in order that they may maintain a satisfactory and growing surplus. The plan is in successful operation in Xorfolk. Va., Atlanta, Ga., Baltimore, Md., Washington, D. C, Memphis, Tcnn., Richmond, Va., Charleston, S. C, Colum bia, S; C Springfield, Mass., St. Louis. Mo., Denver, Colo., Lynchburg, Va., and Philadelphia, I'a. A similar comany, with a capital of $1,000.0110 is ready to la-gin operations m Xew York City un der suH-rvision of the Xew York state banking' department, and similar com panies are already under way in Nash ville, Knoxville. Jackson and Chatta nooga. Tenn., Durham, X. C, Chicago, 111., Pittsburg, Ph.. Xew Orleans, La., and in other important cities through out the country. HUNDRED HURT IN CHURCH RIOT.

' Battleship Maine Was Held at the Arlington National Cemetery. Washington, D. C, Feb. 16. An im posing street demonstration, followed by impressive ceremonies at Arlington Xa tional cemetery, marked the commemo ration here to-day of the sinking of the United States battleship Maine in Havana harbor, that historic event which startled the whole world and fanned into " flame a war fever culminating in the Spanish-American war. Although 16 years have passed since that day in February, 1808, when tlie Maine was literally torn to pieces and 200 of her oflieers and crew perished, yet each year seems to bring added venera tion for those who lost their lives in the explosion. To-day's exercises, while centering about the graves of the Maine heroes, took on, however, a larger sig nificance in including all those of the .land or sea forces Who hnd sacrificed themselves in the line of patriotic duty. Large bodies of cavalry, artillery, sail ors and marines began assembling through the morning for the street pa rade leading to Arlington. The' forces included tlie troopers stationed at' Fort Meyers, the artillery with their long line of rumbling field pieces, large de tachments of bluejackets and marines from the warships and marine barracks in this vicinity, and the full strength of the Xational Guard of the District of Columbia. Many patriotic societies also participated, and in the line of march were carriages bearing the commander in chief of the (.'. A. R., Washington Gardner of Albion, Mich.; the comman der of the Spanish War Veterans, John Lewis Smith; the head of the Army and Navy union, II. Ogden Lake, and others prominent in civic and patriotic afair-t.. Great crowMs lined the streets as tlie procession moved through the downtown section and across the Aqaed ict bridge, over the Potomac river, to ' Arlington. Crossing the bridge, Mil parade halted to witness a novel and impressive fea ture of the day's ceremony the unloos ing on the river below of n bout laden with flowers, which was sent adrift down the historic old stream, mik'ng its way slowly sea-ward until lost to vcw a memorial to the unreeovetcd deJ, not only of the Maine but of other times and places. Arriving at Arlington, hi' iboui weic seen the mute reminders of the Maine's glories. On one side were the graves of the sailors recovered from the wreck of the ship and brought home by the gov ernment for final burial here. In the foreground lay a huge cylinder of tapp ing steel, rusty and inde;t,,d, but stil! preserving the stately ou'liini of the foremast of the Maine. This, too. had been brought back from the tangled wreckage, to be erected and iinveik'd bit er in the spring or summer, alongside the graves of those who in life had seen the flag whipping fim its topmost point. At either sid of the mast l.'y two great anchors of the Maine. To day mast md anchors we. strewn with owers. two large wreathe eotring from the White House, and others from' pat riotic bodies and citizen -. As the parade made its way slowly through the grounds, a salve of artillerv greeted the raising of the flag to full mast. I he invocation ot the day was delivered by Bishop Harding, Protes tant Episcopal ' bishop of Washington. The exercises included addresses by Vr. Lake, Col. John McElrov. a commemora tive address by Mrs. Ida M. "Galloway, past president general of the L'nited Spanish War Veterans' auxiliary, and the reciting of the recessional by Mi. Isabel " Worrell Ball, chairman ot' tie. woman's executive committee. An impressive feature of the dosing exercises was the sounding of taps tie final good-night by many bugler wide ly separated at remote points through- . out the vast cemetery, one after imoth-r taking up the dying echoes and passing them along from point to point like old time signalling of war days. .
