and community who wish them much
joy and happiness in this new stage
of life’s journey.

home to their friends there.
A charivari crowd of small boys

however, but were easily bribed away

“Paid In Full’"
“It is truly a great play”. This is
the estimate place on Eugene Walters
“Paid in Full”the Philadelphia North
America, an opinion whose worth is
mutiplied by the fa< t that it was
expressed in an editorial. Since the
founding of the North American,a dai
newspaper of vast influence and en
ormous circulation, only one play be
sides “Paid in Full” has been held of
sufficient importance to merit the dis
tinction of an editorial. Not alone the
wide public interest in "Paid in Full”
because of its enormous success, but
its notable superiority as a play and
the graphic accuracy with which' it
despiets the social conditions it deal
with, commended it to the North
American for speial considerations

Such is the Ultimatum Sent to the
Senate by President
Washington, Mar. 2—Prelident Taft
swung ihe big stick. Again the story
came to the White house that a
frameup was in progress in the sen
ate to avoid an extra session by vot
ing upon the reciprocity agreement
and defeating it.
Those opposed to the McCall bill,
so "the president was told, are w illing
for reciprocity to come to a vote if
assured in advance that it cannot
pass. There are senators who declare
that enough Democrats can be!
pledged to the opposition to carry (
this agreement into effect. But a snag
has been struck.
The president sent word to the cap
ltol that if any evidence of frameup
adverse to reciprocity came to him lie
would call au extra session anyway.
Mr. Taft decreed that the senate must
not only vote on the McCall hill, if
that body wants to prevent a special
session, but it must pass it.

an Appeal.
New York, Mar. 2.—A genera! meet
ing of the heads of Eastern railroads
is being held in New York to-day to
consider the rate decision of the In
terstate Commerce commission and
to decide what course the railroads
shall follow. The principal question
is whether or not an appeal shall be
taken from the commission's decision.
There is a strong feeling among
some of the railroad men that a test
should be made of the constitution
ality of the law under which the com
mission acted. Other officials are dis
posed to take no action and consider
able uncertainty exists regarding the
outcome of the conference.

The decision was reached at a

roads at the Western Trunk bine as

opinion was advanced by many thal
the roads would be unable to make
any stronger showing before the new
commerce court than they had before
the commission, and that once the
new court had ruled ils decree would

It also was argued that if lh* roads
comply with the decree without objec
tion and withdraw the advanced
tariffs before March 10 there will he
an opportunity at a later date to sub
mit advances on certain rates, some
of which may meet with favor.
