Some time ago the club was Invited to join the City Fed eration ot Improvement clubs. Such mem bership to entail a fee of $2 and a possi bility of being taxed $1 a month to help meet the expensea of th organisation. A discussion of the advisability of such membership occupied the greater part of the business hour, there being a variety of opinions. While the club Is heartily In favor of the city federation and what It proposes to accomplish, many of the women felt that such work was a little out of the line of the club, while others Insisted that ltfwas one of Its branches of work and deserved the support of th club. Others objected to affiliating with tha federation on tha ground that tha club might so be drawn Into politics, but altogether there was no very strong argu ment brought from either side and after a tire ho ma discussion the motion to Join was lost by one vote. Immediately after the decision, the member who hd lea.d tho opposition gave notice that tho matter would ba reopened in two weeks, when a larger attendance might 'be present, to act upon It Tha membership of tha club Is steadily Increasing and Is considerably larger now than at any time last year.

Regarding tree planting, he advised tha planting of a single variety along tha streets to preserve uniformity. Ha said it haa been tho experience of th park board that young trees planted here, In th spring or fall, will' do well If prop erly cared for, and that It had not been the experience of tho superintendent of parka that tho Soft maple rufTered from the winds of this climate, ns has been claimed by eoWe.

HARRISON FIGHTS GAMBLING Mayor of Chicago Woxld Stop Trsss mlssloa of Racing Nevrs by '- Tickers. CHICAGO, Nov. 2.-In an effort to stamp out the handbook evil, a system of betting on horse races which has existed In Chicago for several years, Mayor Carter Harrison tonight sent an ordinance to the city coun cil providing for tho licensing of all tele graphic "tickers" In use in tha city. The end sought by th ordinance Is the preven tion of the use of "tickers" for the trans mission of racing news, betting odds or other Information for the making of bets or wagers on horse races, or any other In telligence for the purpose of gambling. The license fee for each ticker required by tha ordinance Is $1 a year, In addition to a bond of $1,000 that the applicant shall faith fully observe and keep all city ordinances. In explanation of the necessity for such a stringent ordinance Mayor Harrison, In a communication to the council, said: Many years ago the evils resulting from gambling engaged In through the Instru mentality of various lottery comoanies he- came so far reaching and demoralizing that sencrai promomve legislation by the fed eral congress was called for and secured. Tho evils attendant upon the prevalent crate for Rumbling on horse races cer tainly demand as vigorous measures as were resorted to when the united sentiment of the nation exacted from congress th stamping out of lottery gamblings now general ;s ine tendency of tha day to risk money on the outcome of horse races may be learned from the recent reports In the local preHS of notice being posted by the managements of large business houses prohibiting their employes from making wavers on horse races or frequenting places where wagers may be made. Handbooks today are mede In a large number of calooiis, In billiard rooms, barber shops and rlanr rtores. Indeed. It . serted, the suburban trains on various rail- roans are systematically worked by hand book makers, who also employ emissaries to make dally rounds of office buildings for the soliciting of bets and tha 1 ncrease nf patronage. 'ine revocation of th license of Si licensed Institutions proven guilty of har boring handbook makers has only resulted In driving the milkers of books Into places which rannot be reached by this means. For this reason, 1 have had the ordinance prepaied, and If It Is passed by the city council I feel confident it will put a stop to this sort of gambling.
