It bore In bold letters the Inscription:    "Mr President, what will you do for woman suffrage?" A page quickly snatched the bainie^ from its place. The President smilingly looked up from his manuscript, but continued hts reading without hesitation or interruption. No Further Demonstration There was no responsive demonstration from suffrage supporters on the floor or In the galleries, and the Incident passed off without further mark. ! of such parts of railroads as may be A policeman took up his station near requlreJ for mIlltary UBe and The President repeat* his recommendations for a larger Interstate Commerce Commission, with “administrative reorganization,” along the lines of a bill passed by the House and now awaiting Senate action. He also asks legislation that, in case mediation and arbitration fail, a full public investigation of great labor controversies shall be completed before a strike or lockout may lawfully be attempted. He urges Executive power, in ease of military necessity, to take control the women, to see ttiat they did not again violate the rules of the House. The suffrage leaders gave out a prepared statement explaining that inasmuch as the President made no reference to their cause In his address, they took that means of calling it to his attention. Tho President's address was devoted principally to recommendations for railroad legislation. It was brief and required less than 18 minutes for reading. No attempt was made to detain the women as they left the gallery. Capitol police said they were without orders to take any actiton, except to see that no further incidents were attempted.

'The use of the unwholesome, skin-rreepy word 'graft' Is not right unless a man tat; prove It. Of course Mr Bugan doer net say very much that is definite as to specific charges it is a skillfully worded statement. I have a copy of the minutes of the meeting last night, however, and Mr Hagan will be asked to prove his statements. I don't think such bald statements of graft should be allowed to go unchallenged. "H«v makes the general charge that the city loses $2/4jO,0OO a year because of graft, carelessness and inefficiency, and while the charge Is not made directly against me. nevertheless It is a charge against tho administration of which I am the head. and I believe it is my duty to make Mr Hagan prove his statements. “Chargee such as Mr Hagan made injure the standing of the city, and when people read headlines in the papers they are very likely to believe them. Mr Hagan should be made to prove them.’’ J KSS WILLARD* llr*v> etrlfUt CCampton. EX-COUNCILOR WATSON ASKS TO HAVE HAGAN SUMMONED Ex-Councilor James A.

In the galleries Mrs Wilson anti wives and daughters of the Cabinet members Joined in the handclapping. In the diplomatic galleries, representatives of many embassies and legations were interested spectators. Galleries were packed when the President, escorted by the usual committee, walked briskly into the chamber and took his place at the clerk s desk, manuscript in hand. Ile was forced to wait while the demonstration went on. Everybody rose while the Democrats and some Republicans joined in cheers and applause. Wave after wave of shouts swept tho chamber until Speaker Clark pounded for order. The President smiled and bowed, and. bs the demonstration subsided, he began reading his address. As he began reading the nugo yellow banner, bearing in big black letters the words: “Mr President, what will you do for woman suffrage?” was unfurled under the edge of the gallery. Who the Suffragists Were The suffragists represented the Congressional Union for Woman Suffrage and were headed bv Miss Alice Paul, I the chairman. Members said theh flag i had been put up by Mrs .John Rogers of I New York, Mrs Florence Bayard HiUes j of Wilmington, Del, Mrs William Colt of New York and Mrs Anna Lowenberg | of Philadelphia. Mrs Milles is the daughter of the late Thomas F, Bayard. Secretary of State under President Cleveland’s Administration. Persons in the far galleries, commanding a view of the President,, say ne looked up and smiled as the suffrage banner fell to the floor. He continued his reading without hesitation. The President referred at the outset to his program of railroad legislation. Senators and Representatives listened attentively but without demonstration as he referred to compulsory arbitration and enlargement of tho Interstate Commerce Commission. As the President proceeded with recommendations for other legislation, the listening Congress remained silent. When he concluded, however, applause was renewed. The suffragists, who had dropped the banner, Joined in it. The President finished speaking at pute and to’consider all means of conciliation or arbitration.

Dec S—Georges Carpentier, heavyweight champion of France, and Jena Willard, world's champion, are virtually matched for a 10-round, no-1 decision bout to be fought in this city j within the next two months.

It was not until Rickard enlisted the aid cf the members of me of the French relief fund committees that the contest was made possible, the condition being that the promoter give this fund |40,000, in addition to paying Car-pentier's traveling and training expenses for the bout.' This money has been'put up in the form of a bonded deposit, and in return those interested In the fund havk agreed to deliver Carpentier in this country within the next few weeks. A personal contract with Carpentier is now on its way to Paris, whafe the French champion is expected to sign it without delay. No Profit for Carpentier It is understood that Carpentier has offered to box for his expenses and has stipulated that any profits that may accrue to him shall be applied to the general uses of the relief fund in the same manner cs any other contribution. . Carpentier has not engaged in a prize ring battle since July, 1914. After his enlistment he served with the French aviation and motor corps and has been sent to the rear at least once due to wounds.

Shippers’ forecast: Prepare shipments enthusiasts who have seen Carpentier Only Hitch Possible The only possibility of a hitch in the arrangements is a demand on the part of Willard for a share of the purse out of proportion to, the estimated gate receipts. If this develops it is Rickard's plan to match Carpentier with I,es Darcy, the Australian middleweight champion, who is understood to be en route to this country at the present time. Willard recently called Rickard to Chicago for a conference regarding the proposed bout, but his terms at that time were understood to have been eon-entlrely too high. It is said, however, that the champion has since reduced his terms to about the same amount he received for meeting Frank Moran last March, which was $47,500. Willard, should the pugilists meet, will outweigh Carpentier by 50 to’ GO pounds and will tower fully six inches above his French opponent.
