Worried by Fight on
Ship Purchase Bill
WASHINGTON, Jan. . Continued bel
ligerency on tha part of republican en
ators toward the government ship pur
chase bill ha begun to worry adminis
tration leaders, who failed to day to get
the measure- before the senate 6 wing to
monopolization of all the time with
speeches and , appropriation affairs.
Inasmuch as but two months remain
In the life of the Sixty-third congress,
and the senate ha not yet passed any of
the big supply bills, the reiterated deter
mination of 'tha minority to fight the
ship bill o the last ditch and to pre
vent Its consideration whenever possible
has aroused the fear that the adminis
trative legislative program is In danger.
Following last night's conference of.
republicans In Senator Galllnger's office.
from which emanated the suggestion that
tha appropriation bills might be endan
gered before many more weeks passed,
Informal conferences of majority mem
ber were held .today .to ..consider meth
od of procedure. It 1 possible that
night sessions may be foroed in the near
future- By compelling the republicans
to be constantly on hand, the- democrats
think there will be an endurance contest
which would force aa agreement to al
low the ship measure to ba voted on.

With the assistance of the two pro

also 1 expected to align with th repub
lican giving- them a strength of twenty
four against twenty-five democrats. Th

Th recital concert given last evening
at the Temple Israel by Mrs. Lena Ells

friends' and music lover In spite of th
Inclemency of th weather. Mrs. Dale
assisted by Mr. Bennett and Mr. Lands

eral seasons, and each year one Is again
Impressed by the seriousness of her
musicianship. 'Her voice, of naturally
beautiful quality, 1 enriched by careful
atudy, and . her singing shows greater
breadth and maturity. .
Mrs. Dale's part of th program waa
made up of songs which require much
from th singer, and demand versatility
by their contrast and variety. She opened
th program with the aria "Farewell Y
Hill'' by Tschaikowskl, a dramatio num
ber o great range and technical, diffi
culty. Her singing of the 8trauss "Sere
nade'' Inviho-aecona group, waa especially
suited to her vbloe and waa very well
done. . Th Truellngsnacht" by - Schu
mann, which closed the German group,
waa so popular with the audience that It
waa repeated. "The Lord Is My Shep
herd" by Mr. Thomas J. Kelly of Omaha,
sung with the organ, proved a moat
musical setting of tho Twenty-third
Psalm, breathing fervent religious senti
ment through Its quiet meditative mood.
This was a great contrast to the brilliant
aria "I Will Extol Thee," by Sir Michael
Costa, which followed it, also with organ
accompaniment. In the group of English
songs the Pastorale by Carey and th
Irish melody, "When Love I Kind." wer
especially well received, and the encore
"For You." by Mr. Landsberg, met with
a cordial response. Th "Electa" by
Massenet, sung with violin obligate,
closed th program, and was sympathet
Mr. Bennett played the "Praeludlum
Festlvum" from a Sonata by Rene L.
Becker, In a brilliant and mualclanly man
ner. The full organ at th tempi Would
be more effective if It were possessed
of a reed atop to give It that "bite'' which
is so adequate in a large building. Mr.
Bennett mad tha most of hi resources,
however, and later In the program pre
sented a group of shorter numbers with
varied registration and good tast. H

Mr. Landsberg's Sonata for violin and

favorable circumstances, and confirmed
tha impression it had previously mad
of its mualclanly workmanship. Every
movement was Interesting, th first on
especially, and the Adagio In the, second,
followed by the dainty Schersando and
leading back to tempo on waa well
worth th attention. The third movement,
"In raodo Americano," abound in syn
copation, and leads to a brilliant climax.
Mr. Landsberg was given quit an ova
tion by the enthusiastic audience. Mra

"e careful, lady, be careful. Don't
pull that trigger," begged th Intruder.
"Don't call th police. I'll go away."
By this time the pair had reached th
main floor, and the man was edging to
ward the front door. With a final flour
ish of the revolver that almost gave th
would-be thief heart failure, Mra. Allen
commanded him to "clear out." H did.
' Out why didn't you hold him and call
for -the police?" was th Inquiry put by
one of Mrs. Allen's friend.
"Well, I wa pretty shaky myself, and,
aa the gun wasn't loaded and w haven't
had our phone put in yet, I thought I
might a well let him go," she replied.
