WASHINGTON. Oct. ZL The great fight
against tuberculosis Is being won. accord
ing to Chief Slatlstlcan Cressy L. Wilbur
ot th United States census bureau. In a
bulletin Issued today based on the annual
returns of deaths from the death registra
tion area of the United States, he says:
"It Is probable that' the great attention
that has been given to this disease through
the congress on tuberculosis held Wash
ington In 1908 and the organisation of many
states and local societies has already begun
to have Its effect upon mortality from this
disease, and a continued decline in the
death rate from It from year to year
may be expected.
"The total number of deaths from all
forma of tuberculosis returned In 130(1 was
7S.2&. exceesing those of any previous year.
but the death rat per MO, Ota for VMS Is
considerably less than that for 1907. In all
registration states the death from tuber

National Women's Christian Temperance
union convention peeked Into the Audi
torium late Thursday afternoon and found
no preparation hatever for their great
meeting, which open at 9 o'clock this
morning, they all but foil Into a panic.
There was not even a suggestion of th
blir rostrum that the ptogram requires
and the floor. Instead uf being equipped
with avals and theee all marked oft with
standards, according to stat delegations,
was cleartd for a roller skating rink. To
their demands for an explanation Manager
Gillan calmly assured them that everything
would be In readiness by morning.
During th night a force ot workmen
was put to work to transform the hall,
reducing Its space by shutting off th
stage and extending & new stage thirty
two feet forward. Buxes were built at th
sides and tho new seats that wer gotten
at the request of th women, wer all In
place. Back behind the big drop curtain
on the stage proper, a number of larg.
well lighted, well heated committee rooms
had been constructed with canvas par
titions, while up In the corridors rugs,
couches and easy chairs were arranged,
forming little rest rooms. The decorators
bad also been at work and th national
colors, flairs, banners and bunting wer
brought Into effective use. It was neces
sary, however, for the sealing committee
to convene early and before th majority
of the deli-Kates have breakfasted they
will be at the Auditorium arranging space
and placing the stat standards.
