May Call Special Session. Topeka, Feb. 14. -Unless the pres ent legislature adopts :1 good initiative and referendum resolution be submitted to the people; Governor Stubbs will call A special session of legislature early in May. This is the statement going around thie morning and verified by some of the governor's closest friends.

Governor Stubbe himself will not indicate one way or another what his intentions are, but he will not deny that he has decided upon a special session course. The governor is intengely in earnest, 419 to the Initiative and referendum. It is theM hope that the house will adopt resolution without "joker" amendments, as was the case in the senate and again put it up to the upper body for reconsideration. Should the senate again turn the proposition down and three other amendmente have not been adopted legielature, he will then isque 8. call for the special session.

The constitution provides that only three constitutional amendments may be voted upon at one time. Stubbs 18 determined that the question of initiative and referendum shall be definitely settled." said a friend of his, "arid I know that he has decided upou special session unless all doors are closed against him. If a special seation is called in May there will be time to make vigorous campaign and find out pretty clearly whether or not the people wish such a measure." House Favors Oregon Plan. Topeka, Feb.

SOME UNWRITTEN HISTORY. Who Would Believe That John Campbell Was Once a Brakeman. It would never be thought of by statement" but made according Saturday to in his public own luncheon given in honor of the visiting Missouri Pacific officials and party at the Stilwell hotel. Attorney John Campbell was at one time a freight brakeman when he was it young man. am proud to say before all these distinguished gentlemen that I was formerly a railroad man," said he.

"When I was a young man the ambition overtook me to become 11. railroad conductor. The same feeling has possibly overtaken some of you at some time or another in your life but you never had that ambition satisfled to this day, In order to become a conductor I commenced at the bottom of the ladder and after securing 8 place, as a freight brakeman, started out one fine day. I was brakeman just one round trip. I and the job fell out for some reason and I would not have made the round trip only for the fact that I did not have any money to pay my way back home and had to brake my way.

When got home I turned the over to a cousin of mine and he is working yet." What has become of the old-fashtoned man who used the lapel of his coat for EL pin-cushion. A good many men have become agents because someone told them they were good talkers. Every lawyer who is a good talker has it said of him, "Well, he ought be; that'a his, business." Nearly every man forty years thinks he looks younger than the lows he grew up with. TITLE IS HERS HELEN VIVIEN GOULD CAN NOW SIGN HER NAME "LADY DECIES." Great Jam of People near Church Where Wedding Occured Gave the Police Plenty to do in Handling Them. New York, Feb.

Helen Vivien Gould second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George J. Gould and granddaughter of the late Jay Gould was married shortly after 4 o'clock in Bartholomew's Protestant Episcopal church to Maj. John Gra- ham Hope Horsley-Beresford, D.

S. 0., fifth baron Decles. She is 18 years old; he is 44. Gould family a year, the eldAt the second, wedding in the est daughter having been married in the same church last April Anthony J. Drexel, and second international wedding neeln the family, today's event has EL topic of general interest ever since the news leaked out, shortly after the horse show last fall, that Miss Gould wAs to wed Lord Decles.

But the scene of last April at the church when bride was fairly mobbed by curlous women who crowded about the church doors, wag not repeated. The police saw to that and anybody who got near the church today had to show that he or she was entitled to be there, or to church, but bride's was clear and distinet. When it came to repeating, "I take thee, Helen Vivien," the bridegroom did better. The choir sang Perfeet Love." and then after the invocation the organ pealed out Mendelssohn'9 "Wedding March" and crowded to the ends of the pews to get EL look at the couple. After the ceremony there was reception for a limited number at the residence of Mr.

and Mrs. Gould and later Lord and Lady Decies departed in a private car for Palm Beach, near which they will spend the first week of the honeymoon in a villa owned by a friend of the bride's father. Then 8. short stay will be made at the Jekyll Island club, it is understood and Lord and Lady Decles will spend a short time at Georgian Court before sailing for Egypt on the Carmania on February 18. They will spend two months on or about Nile FO inside.

Outside, in the slushy streets, there pushed and shoved the usual crowd curiosity seekers, whose persistency makes police arrangements such IL necessary part of a fashionable wedding in New York. Yet, notwithstanding the crowd, there was no untoward incident, and none of the many cranks who has assailed Decies in anonymous communications made themselves known. The ceremony was performed by Bishop David H. Greer of Episcopal diocese of New York and Rev. Dr.

Parks, rector of St. Bartholomews. George J. Gould gave daughter away and Miss Edith Gould the bride's next oldest sister, was maid of honor. Lord Alastair Graham, R.

a son of the duke of Montrose, was best man. Long before 4 o'clock more than 100 policemen and detectives were on their way to the church. At 2:30 d'elock they were stationed fL block from the church in all directions and established a zone through which only guests might pass. Vehicles were diverted througt. parallel thoroughfares, and the street cars which run down Madison avenue past St.

Bartholomew's whizzed through the zone" without a stop. Dozens of persons bound for the Grand Central Station--all of them in aL hurry, they said--were bouneed. off the police lines to scramble through side streets to the station. The guests began to assemble more than an hour before the wedding. A few were admitted but through a hitch in the arrangements more than 100 shivered outside the church doors on the sidewalk for al quarter of an hour.

3:15 Lord Decieg arrived, nearly 811 hour before Miss Gould's cal stopped at the curb. He was resplendent in his uniform, 8 glitter with service medals and blue and gold braid. The church was profusely decorated and the color scheme was green and white. At the entrance of the third pew stood tall, slender vases filled with 100 Easter lillies. From the vaulted roof above hung festoons of feathery ferns.

windows were massed alternately with lilies and marguerites. The chancel WiLS a mass of spring blossoms and on either side of the altar stood tall palms for a background. Bunked against them white lilac trees, tall calla lilies blogsome and marguerites. It was nearly 4 o'clock when, according to custom, the ushers led the wedding procession down the aisle. First in line came Earl Percy and Lord Ingraham, then Robin Grey and Phoenix Ingraham, Moncure Robinson and Robert H.

Rugsell, Anthony Drexel, brother-inlaw of the bride and Francis W. Crowninshield. After them came the bridesmaids, in simple white frocks, without hats, Miss Louise Cromwell and Miss Hannah Randolph walked first and then came, two by two, Miss Allison Pierce and Miss Emeline Holmes and Miss Hope Hamilton and Miss Annie Douglass Graham, who took Miss Beatrice Claflin'e 11 place, owing to the latter's illness. Next came the four flower children, little William Bereaford, with be Gloria Gould and Marcus Beresford with Diana Dalziel. A little behind them walked the maid of honor, Edith Gould, who is only 13.

There was an interval and then came the bride, leaning upon the arm of her lather, She looked tiny, but pretty, and was smiling. Lord Decies, in the blue uniform 01 the Seventh Hussars and his best man. Lord Alastair Graham, in 8 similar uniform, had entered from the vestry. After Mr. Gould had givaway the bride he retired to a seat with Mrs.

Gould. Lord Decies' "I will" could not be heard wa'ly down the before going to London for the opening of the season that is to be inade gay by the coronation festivities. The gathering at the church was by no means what is ordinarily termed an exclusive one. True the numto ber of invitations had been and New York society, was largely limited, represented but it was about as cOSold mopolitan a throng in several senses fel- as has ever been seen at a New Yor': wedding in recent years. FROM FORMER RESIDENTT.

Ulm, Montana, 1911. To My Headlight it has been one year since I left Barton county, I thought I could reach more of my friends with one letter to your valuable paper. I will try to tell you something about this country. We are located on the Missouri river in what is known as Ulm Flat. This country has formerly Seen a cattle and sheep country; farming is in its infancy.

All kinds of grain do well except corn. The season is too short except the early varieties. This is a fine garden and truck farming country, being close to a good market that promises to consume all surplus products for many years. Great Falls is our nearest large town; is second largest in the state. It has the largest smelter in the world, the smoke stack is 600 ft.

high and 128 ft. across at the bottom. One of the largest electric power plans in the world, the Rain Bow Dam at the Rain Bow Falls furnishes power for Butte and Anaconda mines. It ig carried by wire. Great Falls has automobile fire department; it has two branch lines of the Great Northern R.

R. and Milwaukee R. R. is being built. There is some homestead land here yet but it is getting scarce A9 hen's teeth.

Great Falls land office had over 10,000 fling in 1910. Crops in some parts was good, Thousands of cattle and horses are on the range here fat enough for the market. Good fishing and hunting trout, ling and perch are the principle fish. Two days drive to all the largest game, such as deer, bear, elk, gouts, mountain sheep and mountain lions. I can see antelope almost any day but they are protected by law.

Produce of all kinds are a good price. Hogs are 14c per lb dressed, although there are not many hogs raised. Eggs 60c per dozen, butter 40c per lb. This is a healthy climate as many of you know father was not able to do anything for over one year before we came here. He has regained his health and dids able to do 8 man's work again.

It gets pretty cold here In winter. It has been 40 below zero this winter but it is a dry cold and does not hurt as bad as zero weather in that country. To those that would like this country my home is always welcome and the string hangs outside. CHAS. E.

One of the most successful Farmrs' Institutes held lately in this section of the country took place Saturday afternoon at the Langdon Schoolhouse and was greatly enjoyed all in attendance.

Ed Broadhurst wag the hairman of the meeting and it was in a great measure to his eforts the of the meeting was stuccess was held.

The program was well arranged und opened with a talk from J. B. Phillips on how to raise seed corn. He gave his opinion how to care for the seed corn and how to plant It order to get the best results. His talk was well received and ligtened to with great interest was, from start to finish.

Mr. Phillips was followed by J. E. Hudson on the subject of oats cultivation, one that the farmers have been studying for years, in order to get the most out of oats.

Delegates returning from the vention of the State Society of Labor and Industry, held this week at Topeka, say that it was merely 8 farce and that honesty had no place in it, charging that the election which was on the regular program for Wednesday was held on the day previous when it was learned that this was necessary for the election of the ring candidate, and that every means was used to defeat the honest voice of the convention regarding the honest choice of a commissioner of labor for the state, says the Fort Scott Republican. Charles Danner, a Port Scott candidate, was defeated by only two votes, and had the election been held when scheduled it is assured that he would have been elected, as a number of those who were favorable to nim had planned to spend Wednesday there and were not present when the election was held on Tuesday, Mr. Danner stated last night that he did not believe that he had been treated fairly in the convention.

In discussing it he said that it had been the custom for past twelve years to adhere strictly to the regular order of business, which included the election of on Wednesday, and that the printed programs circulated among the delegates this year showed that it would be held on Wednesday evening, but that his opponents by bringing it in as a special order of business had it held on the day previous and by this method alone accomplished his defeat. At 10:30 Tuesday morning the miners were in their convention when a vote was taken to hold the election at 11 o'clock in the labor convention. The miners were sent for and by their aid the motion carried. The miners had conceded the place to Mr. Danner and their representative always held second place.

It also been customary had a number of years for the railroad representatives to caucus preceding the election. This was held on Monday night and it was voted to stand by the vote of the caucus. This was for Mr. Danner which, according to the instructions pledged all of their votes to his candidacy. When the vote was called in the following day W.

A. L. Johnson, the present commissioner and a representative of the boilermakers; W. O. VanPelt, of the B.

of: L. E. of Pittsburg; A. A. Roe of the B.

of R. T. of Wichita, and W. H. Klecan of the B.

or L. F. and E. of Arkansas City, bolted the instructions of the caucus and voted a for other candidates, VanPelt had been instructed by the lodge he represented to vote for Mr. Danner and bolted them also.

Owen Doyle, at present assistant labor commissioner, was elected after balloting that had lasted all of the afternoon, by two majority. CAMPBELL LOST THE ARGUMENT KANSAS CONGRESSMAN TALKED HARD AGAINST INCREASE OF MEMBERSHIP OF THE HOUSE. Washington, Feb. Democrats of the House, aided by a few Republicans who declined to be bound by the party caucus, won their tight for an increased representation in the lower branch of Congress under the census of 1910. They voted down the Republican caucus bill to maintain the membership at 391, as at present and then passed the original Crumpacker Bill rixing the membership at 433 on and after March If Arizona and New Mexico should be admitted to statehood they will be given one I representative each, bringing the total of 435.

Today's action of the House must be ratified by the Senate. The House leaders believe the Senate will follow the wishes of the lower branch. Under the new reapportionment plan no state loses a member. The ing states gain the number indicated: Alabama, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, West Virginia, 1. The House spent more than five hours in discussing and voting upon the bill and proposed amendments.

An amendment offered by Representative Bennett of New York and designed to cut down Southern representation was voted down by 154 to 96. Representative Crumpacker of Indiana, chairman of the committee on the census author of several hills to reduce representation and, from states in the South, voted against the Bennett amendment. The Democrats lost only one decision in the fight. A committee amendment in the blil providing that states should redistricted by the legislatures was voted down on 8.11 appeal from the Republican members of the Missouri delegation. They held the states should be permitted to redistrict themselves in their own way.

The advocates of a membership of 391 fought for their cause to the last minute. Before the final vote was taken, Representative Campbell of Kansas moved the recommitment of the 433 bill, with instructions to the committee of the whole House to report a substitute providing for 391 members. This motion was lost by a vote of 131 to 171. This reflected the sentiment of the memberg 80 decisively that the vote by which the bill was passed was decided in the affirmative witout a division or EL roll call. Representative Crumpacker of Indiana author of the 433 bill, which was unanimously reported from the census committee and afterwards rejeeted by the Republican caucus, urged the necessity of action at this session and explained the difference between the two propositions before the House.

Representative Campbell of Kansa8 spoke in behalf of his bill, approved by the Republican caucus, for the retention of the present membership of 391. He said he personally would prefer to have the number reduced rather than increased. Mr. Campbell said that every increase in the membership of tho House had been made to gratify the ambition of states and members rather than to put into practice any ideas about the formation of a representative body. When the House had sixty-five members, Mr.

Campbell contended, it was a more effective legislature body than it had been since. Representative Gillett of Massachusetts and Barnhart of Indiana spoke for the Campbell proposal; Thomas of North Carolina and Lang-1 ley of Kentucky in favor of the Crumpacker Bill. Scarcely had Mr. Langley taken the floor before Representative Madden wanted to know if he proposed not to recognize the action of the Republican caucus which he had attended. He replied that he liked to be "regular" but believed the caucus! had no right to approve any specific number and for his part he would not allow any man or any caucus to deter him from carrying out his pledge to represent his people.

Champ Clark of Missouri in favoring an increase in membership said the real work of the House would continue to be performed in. committees and that the number of representatives on the floor would make little or no difference. It used to be said that the only good Indians were dead ones. The (same might be said of husbands and other excellent people. OPOLIS NEWS Death of Hiram Morrow.

GIRL. Professor Alberta Corbin of the department of German arrived in Lawrence Saturday from her trip abroad, which was begun last spring at the close of the semester. Miss Corbin spent the most of her time in Surope studying at the University of Berlin, but during the summer months she toured England and Southern Germany and spent several days in Paris. In speaking of the advantages of Che Universities there, Miss Corbin said "I went to see most of the classical German plays at the theater in Berlin which is the best in Germany, The musical advantages offered there ire exceilent. Most of the great artists of the world are heard in Amerien more frequently than in Berlin, but Che greatest ones come to Berlin for few performances, and afterwards tour America, their object being to obtain better salaries than the Germans can afford to give them in that country.

"It is a difficult matter to make the Germans believe that any of the Americans are poor. Germany a8 il nation gives one the impression of being a comparatively poor country, but they have no extremely poor classes as in England and their provisions for taking care of their poor are unexcelled. They arrange this by system of pensions which is in charge of the government.

"However, some of the more old fashioned type of Germans speak with disapprobation of the growing predominance of the business and other practical interests under the name of Americanism," she continued. "The better informed class of Germans do not think this growth of business interests that, due to American influence. The average German does not give us credit for having much idealism."
