great reputation In tho courts, whero
ho lias been a loader In .chancery for
many years Whereas Mr. Smith ut

young by somo mon. Ills groat gift
Is lucid exposition nnd directness In

WOULD PREPARE FOR WAR
In tho discussions of the lessons
of tho European war as applied to tho
military problems of the United
States no man In congress has a
larger part than Representative Julius
Knhn of California. Mr. Kahn, as
president of tho National Defense
league of tho United States, is an ear
nest advocate of peace, but ho holds
that for the United States, at least,
preparedness for war Is tho only in
surance against war.
"Militarist," his very good friend,
Representative Richard Hurtholdt of
Missouri, culls him, in their debates
on tho subject. "Pnelllst," retorts Mr
Kahn, for Mr. Hartboldt Is committed
.to tho cause of peace, and Is ono of
the country's most noted ndvocutoH of
arbitration as a euro for war.
Roth of German nativity, both of
long servico In congress, both leadors
of thought on tholr respectlvo sides,
Messrs. Kahn and Hnrtholdt aro at
opposite polntH of tho polo on mill-
tary subjects. Mr Kahn, personally gentlo and kind of ninnnor, fair and
liberal in dobato, philosophical In his habits of mind, never comes so near to
losing Ills patience us when ho hears pacifist arguinentH
"Yos, yes," said he, almost Impatiently, when somo of the recent publica
tions woro brought to hint in which appeared articles arguing that pieparatlon
for war Inevitably is an Invitation for war. "Yes, yos; 1 have scon all that
ptuff. How silly and futile It appears lit tho light of what Is going on In
Europe!"

"Fancy nnmes, abbreviations, or
pot names do not claim much favor In
those times," romarked Mrs. Owon,
wlfo of tho Oklahoma statosmnn. ''I
am frequently naked why I do not call
mynolf Margaret, and I reply prompt

Mime- I wan born when tho fields of
my nntlvo,, heath, then Indlnn Terri
tory, now tho growing stato of Okln
houia, woro abloom with tho starry
tlowerB wo called tho daisies. My
mother hnd gone to the now land with
my father from among hor kindred
and beloved friends in North Caro
lina, and naturally sho was homesick.
Tho daisies reminded hor of tho o)d
place back n Carolina, for there, too,
thousunils or snowy blossoms dot tho
fields, and she called ino Daisy Deano.
Tho latter Is a family name, nnd also
tho words of tho plaintive old Bong
'Dalay Deano,' very popular in tho
times of romantic ballads and before
tho ora of ragtime and tho coon song.
I never noe ono of tho lovely little Howoih without thinking of my mother,
and I cling to the rather Infantile namo without tho leaat desiro to muke It
moro dignified or sedate I like names with meaning, so wo called our only
daughter Dorothea, gift of God, for she was tho only grandchild on both sldea
of tho house, and her coming meant so much to us nil."
Senator and Mis. Owen aro among tho odaptable members of official
Boclety, and have alllliated with many actlvo organizations. Tlioy belong to
tho Chov Cliaso club, and enlivened tho tedium of tho summer by al fresco
dinners there and by teas and afternoon dances. They aro both membcru of
tho Columbia Golf club, and may bo seen constantly during tho heated term
following the elusive bull over tho hills and dales of tho courso.
SIMEON E. BALDWIN, WALKER
Gov. Simeon E. Ilaldwln of Con
necticut, defeated for tho United
StntoB Benato at tho recent election,
Is Boventy-llvo years old, but a great
walker. He believes in walking Ho
was In Washington while tho Ameri
can Hnr association was in session,
and ho and ox-President Taft, among
others, woro named to go to the White
House and escort President Wilson to
tho session. They rode across Wash
ington in an automobile and tho gov
arnor explained tholr puiposo to tho
prenidont.
"I hear, governor," tho ox-presl-donL
said, "thut ou aro fond of
walking."
"I tulto a dally constitutional,"
was tho reply of the tall, sparso, won
derfully actlvo executive
"Good," said tho president. "In
that ease we'll foot It to tho meeting."
And off tho party started. Tho
governor acted ns pacemaker and the
ox-prosldent had hard work to keep
up with tho procession. Last summer, at Stonington, tho govornor mado mil
eight-mile through the country in tho morning, and in tho afternoon lefuted
to rldo In tho parade, which was u part of tho celebration ho was attending.
"No, I'll walk," he said. And walk ho did, right behind tho band.
