THE HOUSE PASSES BILL
TO STOP HAZING AT
THE LONG DRAWN OUT SMOOT
HEARING TO BE CLOSED AT
LAST AND VOTE TAKEN.
MRS. ROOSEVELT AND CHILDREN
TAKE A TRIP FOR REST
Hazing at the Aunapons naval acad
emy was dealt with by the house in
the passage of a senate bill with a
house substitute. The action was tak
en after a protracted debate which
placed la the record the impressions
of the special committee which inves
tigated the subject recently aud a se
vere criticism of efforts to condone
hazing, by Mr. Hepburn, of Iowa. Sev
eral amendments were proiosed to the
measure, but all were rejected save
one making it the duty ot cadet offi
cers to report Infractions of tho rules
as well as other academy authorities.
The speech of Mr. Hepburn (la.),
was a severe criticism of what he said
was a perversion of the real object
of the training. These cadets were
being prepared at the expense of the
nation to command the ships and men
of the navy. They were, as a matter
of fact, living in constant and open
rebellion of a plain law of the land
with which they were more familiar
than with any other.
The result of such a course of train
ing, he said, was shown by the ineffi
ciency of naval officers. He called at
tention to h list of 25 ships which had
met disaster by bad navigation and
added a reference to the recent mix
up in New York harbor. Yet, he said,
there was uo punishment ever inflict
ed on a naval officer. They were tried
by their friends and former class
mates. The Smoot Case.
The senate committee on privileges
and elections will close absolutely this
week the case of Senator Smoot and
a vote on whether he shall or shalj
not be expelled Is expected at this
session of congress.
That, at least. Is the opinion of Sen
ator Burrows, chairman of the com
mittee. Senator Smoot was given ad
ditional time to present certain evi
dence in rebuttal. The witnesses
have arrived and they will be heard
as soou as possible.

term of office.
In this case neither Mrs. Roosevelt
nor her friends regard the trip as any
thing unusual. While not sick, Mrs.
Roosevelt is suffering from the strain
of her social duties and has decided
to take a rest.
The fact that she will seek to re
cuperate her strength with a voyage
on a government vessel, and that, the
vessel will probably proceed Into West
Indian waters, Is but an Incident of

Roosevelt will stop at any of the Isl

my druggist and purchased two bot
tles of the Heart Cure, and took It
nccording to directions, with the
result th.it I am entirely cured. Sino
then I never mlKS an opportunity to
recommend this remedy to my friend.
