Wilson's veto of the immigration bill
" because of its literacy test feature

and democrats, being almost equally
divided on either side, t
Tomorrow the action of the house
will be reported to the senate, where
the bill passed originally by 64 to 7.
An effort to override the veto will be
made there without delay and advo
cates of tbr measure say it is certain
to be successful.
For twenty years there has been
a light to establish a literacy test as a
restriction upon immigration.
Four times such a provision has run
the gauntlet of congress and has been
vetoed by President Cleveland, by
President Taft and by President Wii
sob in 1915 and this year.
Margin of Twenty-five.
Tonight -the house had twenty-five
more than the necessary two-thirds
majority. Republican Leader Mann

Cold Weather Puts Several
School Heating Plants Out
of Order.
- The cold gripped the South Side
severely in many places in the last
twenty-four hours. Night school at
the high school was dismissed last
evening and there was no school ses
sion at the South Field school on
West, L street, on account of furnace
trouble. The stopper on One of the
leading mains from the high school
furnace burst just before the after
noon session was completed and the
heating plant was put out of order.
Engineer Hummel took charge of
the situation and ordered fire under
one of the boilers put out. Plumbers
worked late last evening fixing .the
leak, while the engineer .remained in
the school building through the night.
At the Field school the turnace, a new
one recently installed, wasrepaired
after an all-day visit by furnace
Attendance at most of the public
schools was far less than normal.
Distant schools, such as the Highjand,
West Side and the Field, reported
less than half of the students attend

Wednesday was three-fourths up to
'the total registration.
Auto Victims Recover.
The four victims of accidents in au
tomobile smash ups Wednesday, will
all recover. Chester Dean, young
truck driver, whd was hurled thirty
feet from the top of the West Q
street viaduct at Forty-fifth street, and
buried beneath the debris of the ma
chine, was able to go home unaided
Thursday morning. It was first re
ported that his left leg was broken,
but this was only bruised. His escape
from instant death is remarkable as
the truck was completely demolished.
Henry Wredi, young stockman at
the yards, will recover according to
announcement of his physician, Dr.
Shanahan. He sustained only severe
cuts about the upper chest and arms.
His two partners in the car, William
Kline and C. Collins, Avery, will also
recover. They were but slightly in

The other enlisted men who ar

High army omcers here denied the

What is the Cause
of Rheumatism,
Lumbago and
(By Valentine Mott Pierce, M. D.)
Ever since Scheele, in 1775, discov
ered that uric acid was present in the
system, scientific men have been mak
ing experimental investigations, and
it is the almost universal opinion of
our best medical men, that the pres
ence of uric acid in the system in ex
cess is the cause of rheumatism and
gout. When the urate salts are precip
itated out of the blood into the solid
tissue-structure the person suffers
from gout and rheumatism in the mus
cles and joints, or suffers from lum
bago and pain in the back muscles.
The first aim of the sufferer should
be to get rid of the uric acid, which,
excess, is a poison, and to do this
it is well to drink about a pint of hot
water morning and night get tablets
of Anuric (double strength) at the
nearest drug store ana take tnem De
fore meals regularly. Anuric will do
no harm to the system and will
carry off the uric acid by stimulating
the kidneys, men tincture looine may
be painted over the swellings, or in
more severe cases hot linseed poul
tices may be applied to soothe the
local symptoms. But most important
is it for the sufferer to abstain from
meat, to diet, drink only lemonade or
hot water, and take Anuric for a con
siderable time, as it causes a drainage
oufward of the uric acid and is many
times more potent than lithia and usu
ally one finds that it dissolves uric
acid as hot water does sugar. Adv.

World Realizes Question of
Whether U. S. Enters VTar
to Be Decided There.
El Paso, Tex., Feb. 2. A report
Great Britain and all Europe are to
day focused on Washii.gton. It is
recognized that the question whether
the United States finally will be
drawn into the European war is being
decided there. Not only the policy
of the United States but of neutral
European rations also s being largely
determined in Washington. From
Spain, Holland and the Scandinavian
countries messages to the English
papers say they are waiting for the
lead which the United States will give
before framing their replies to the
German announcement n unfettered
maritime war against all cargo ves
sels approaching its enemies' coasts.
British officials declined to speak
for publication on the crisis lest any
utterances might be construed in the
United States as officious attempts to
influence the American p licy and in
trude upon the problem, which they
recognize as purely one between the
neutral nations and the central
powers. ,
Two theories are current here and
are being warmly discussed. One is
that the central powers expect to
starvd out Great Britain and its allies
by unrestricted sea warfan and that
they consider, they have more to gain
by trying to shut off American sup
plies of munitions and food than by
continjirg 1 friendly relations. The
second is 'hat the central dynasties
consider that ats'the presen moment
they may best serve their own inter
ests with . their peoples by bringing
upon themselves the hostility of the
neutral nations and saying that they
cannot fight the whole world.

Is "Peace Without Victory"
A Dream, or
Two unprecedented incidents have been recorded in the cable dispatches
outlined before the United States Senate the kind of peace that "the peoples of America could join
in guaranteeing." On the day following his speech a great conference of the British Labor. Party in
England rose to its feet and applauded for five minutes at 'the casual mention of President Wilson's
name and then enthusiastically voted its unqualified support to the British government in carrying
' the war to a victorious conclusion ! ' , -
The other incident, was the sending to President Wilson from the Allies' trenches in' France of a ! ,
. number of circular letters each signed by three hundred soldiers, thanking him for his generous in
tervention, but asking hhn to "dram no longer of the chimera of peace until victory is gained."' ,
x In THE LITERARY DIGEST for February 3 d, the feature-article shows what the rulers and the
newspapers of the world think of President Wilson's attitude. Since it is not possible to know im
mediately what the common people think of it, it will give considerable satisfaction to read this com- ,
prehensive survey. ' ' : ; , . , . ,

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Washington, Feb. 2. (Special Tel
egram.) What is regarded as the
last record vote on a revenue-pro
ducing measure in the Sixty-fourth
congress was taken yesterday in the
house of representatives, the adminis
tration measure being adopted, 215 to
1. v
This majority will disappear in the
Sixty-fifth congress, for inside infor
mation is that the republicans will
organize the succeeding congress,
through the help of three independ
ents, two of whom have always had
republican leaning. .
The Nebraska members, and all
were present, split on party lines on
the new tariff bill, .two republicans,
Sloan and Reavis, voicing their ob
jection to the measure on the floor.
The democrats from Nebraska were
content to sit tight and vote as their
party leader gave the word.
