Albany. — Senator John See'ley, of Steuben, who introduced the attempt Of the Hospital Trained Nurses' Asso- ciation to secure monopolistic control of the term \nurse is not committed to itp support, although he introduced the bill at the request of the nurses interested. He has already been hear- ing from those interested in those do- mestic, guild, \certified school\ and Individual nurses, whose livelihood the Seeley bill threatens. The bill is considered to be a great injustice to all those nurses who have not had the opportunity to get a hospital training, and it is known that it is only really supported by those' of the hospital- trained nurses who are in the State Association of Hospital-trained Nurses. Whatever the backing and the motive behind the bill, it is bound to be ap- posed as an attempt to organize a nurses' trust, and to still further re- strict the supply of trained nurses even when the demand is now greater than the supply. A natural conse- guence would be the increase in sal- aries which the hospital-trained nurses demand, since the excess of demand over-any supply is accompanied by an Increase in prices when natural laws are not interfered with. Must Be Hospital Graduate. Senator Seeley's bill seeks to forbid the use of the word \nurse\ by any except a \registered nurse,\ who now must be a hospital graduate and be duly registered after an examination. :There is no opposition to such nurses being allowed exclusive use of the title \R. N.,\ which stands for \Regis- tered. Nurse;\ just as the physicians may use \M. D.\ But the Seeley bill lias a - more sinister object, which the provision for the \R. N.\ degree is a cover. The Seeley bill (Senate 943) provides, that \A person to whom such certificate has' not been issued shall not Bold himself or herself out as a nurse or use the term 'nurse' or 'regis- tered nurse,' or other words, letters or •\figures to indicate that the person ; Tising the same is a nurse and entitled 'to .practise as such.\ In other words, •tjiere arg no \nurses\ except the 9,525 \'registered nurses,\ although there are !{)j$©0 graduates of hospital training ipols in ifhe State, and each one of M$'4*'iTi-*Wi&fe• • W P-W> \ ntiI sIle a c<35iired the >.-sM\ M?:.% .iprtlhcat'e- of {'registered nurse,\ not -'• De'4lld#p4 to ifee the term nurse if the \.'... •Seete^ ^biU brabame a law. But the ,T 5^S^S&pEs*'ot 1 Me bill are n6t directing •*helr ^uiis^at wose, though all will be tit,, .as. at the schools, for training nurses which 'exist outside the hospi- tals and not not pretend to give the hospital training, but do turn out qual- ified nurses for many physicians and invalids to employ. After the Schools. This other section of the bill pro- poses to wipe out such schools with this provision: \A school or institu- tion for giving instruction in the care of the sick which is not cfiiiiecred with a hospital or sanitarium regis tered by the regents shall not issue a diploma, certificate or other written instrument to any person, indicating that such person is entitled to practice as a nurse.\ There are physicians here and elsewhere who can testify no matter how ardent is their support for the hospital school for trained nurses, that the \certified nurse,\ the guild nurse, and the nurse who has no di- ploma or certificate, have been and can be used and with great success for certain patients. There are those here, where all the different schools and grades of nurses can be obtained, •who have had experience in their fam- ilies and who have found the nurse -who was not the hospital-trained prod- uct altogether the better. This does not reflect so much on the hospital as •upon the individual graduate of it, and there are some very poor hospital school-trained nurses as patients and their families and doctors have found out. The hospital school is a good thing, and any nurse who studies and is capable is better for having the hospital training and experience; but it does not necessarily qualify anyone to practice nursing; but the Seeley bill is framed for that purpose. There is a hearing scheduled on the Seeley hill before the Senate committee on public health, and the different schools of nurses' will be represented for and against the bill. \Blue Sky\ Bill Put Over.

Governor Raps Building Graft. \I shall take this question up with the Attorney-General and the Trustees of Public Buildings and see what we can do to stop the people of the State from being robbed.\ The above was Governor Sulzer's comment on the re- port of his committee of inquiry, which recommended that the Attorney Gen- eral take such action concerning the recent disclosures in connection with allegations of graft in the reconstruc- tion of the burned portions of the Capitol \as the interests of the State may require.\ The committee report- 1 ed that \there have been gross irregu- larities in the letting of contracts, in the changing of the same, in the changing of specifications, in award- ing contracts without competitive bid- ding, which have resulted and will re- sult in large losses to the State. It is also apparent from the testimony,\ the report continues, \that much of the matter referred to in the testi- mony herewith submitted, including contracts which are claimed to be obligatory on the State, were made without any lawful authority whatso- ever, and that money may have been paid out improperly in connection with these contracts.\ Baltimore, March S. — Fifty-four known dead, and perhaps a number of unknown dead, buried in the harbor, besides scores of injured, many fatal- ly, represent the human toll exacted by an explosion of 340 tons of dyna- •uiite in the hold of the British steam- ship A.um Chine while she was lying off Fort Howard. The terrible blast, which so rocked five Slates that many citizens thought it was the result of an earthquake, spread destruction over a wide area. The Alum Chine was destroyed, to- gether with a barge and the tug At- lantic alongside liei\ The •ne.w collier Jason awaiting trial 'for acceptance by the Navy -'Department.. was badly damaged, four of the crew were killed and twenty-seven more hurt. Many buildings in Baltimore and vicinity sustained shocks that caused panics and in some cases temporary suspension of work. The property damage is estimated to be' $BO'q,000 at least. By a curious fate it was the instinct of mercy and a response to the ap* peal of two of their fellows in mortal danger that swelled the death list and the list of injured. Curling smoke from the bow of the Alum Chine warned the. stevedores en-gaged in loading her and the crew of the tug Atlantic, lying alongside, that death was in the air. In the hold of the steamship and aboard of a barge at her side were more than 300 tons of dynamite consigned to Pana- ma. Every man knew instantly that the coal bunkers of the Alum Chine were on fire and that the heat and flames would reach the dynamite. Fourteen members of the crew and four of the stevedores tumbled aboard the little launch Jerome, that just be- fore had carried out two or three new firemen. Most of the others leaped for the decks of the Atlantic. Hawsers were severed and tug and launch sped from the doomed ship. The Atlantic was running rapidly to LOUIS D.

They sent up piteous appeals for rescue. Despite the danger that menaced and the knowledge that in a few min- utes a hail of death would be falling all around, Capt. William E.

SOME QUIET THOUGHTS. That first kiss that a man asks for will be long remembered—if he doesn't get It. If you haven't married the best man, you need not despair. Happiness can result from making the best of him. Take the things that a man says about his love for you with a spoonful of salt. The things that choke him and leave him miserable and dumb on the hall bench are the ones that count. If a man shows an unusual aptness at compliments, love phrases and kisses, • he is either very much in The chief losers are the owners of j through the crowded streets to the I the Alum Chinp. which cos* | Unon the Maryland S*- | volves the loss of the cn'1 j $100,000. j The cargo of the Alum Chine has I not been accounted tor entirely, but ] will entail SI 00,000.

TESTIFIES BEFORE MILITARY Mother Jones Accused—Labor Agitat- or Identified by Sleuth as Having Planned Outrages—Will Not Join West Virginia Strikers in Appeal. GREAT CROWDS AT BLACKPOOL Charleston; W. Va., March 10.—F.'A. Smith, a Burns detective, was before the military commission &t Pratt, and described a series of. bloody battles fought in the 'Kanawha coal strike dis- trict between -miners and mine watch- men. Disguised as a miner and armed with a card of the United Mine Work- ers Union, Smith mingled freely with the ringleaders and shared all their secrets. He testified .that ho came here five months ago at the request of the State authorities, and was in the thick of all the troubles on Point Creek and Cabin Creek. Prior to martial law being declared a third time In the Kanawha field -on February 10 a mail train conveying non-union miners into Cabin Creek was stopped by armed miners, who forced the crew to take the men back to Charleston: Later a train convey- ing a .sheriff's posses was ambushed on Paint 'Creek and riddled with bul- lets.- , . petermihe'd assaults by large bodies of miriest with high-power rifles on mining settlements on both creeks fol- lowed, the towns being defended by mine guards. On February 10 a fierce encounter ensiled near Mucklow on Paint Creek between 150.miners who were advanc- ing on Mucklow and a small party of deputy sheriffs and mine guards. On the same day a similar battle was fought at Ronda, Cabin Creek, a few miles away. Sixteen were killed that day and about as many wounded. Martial law was declared that evening and a military special train rushed from here to the strike field. Between Cabin and Paint Creeks, 20 miles from Charleston, the train proceeded slowly and skirmishers searched the track, finding it planted thick with dynamite sticks. The second military train later that night from Huntington passed through a'similar experience, over 75 pounds of dynamite being found on the tracks by military outposts. A third train also narrowly escaped destruction by sending skirmishers ahead. Detective Smith told In detail how all these attempts were planned by ringleaders of the strikers, and he identified them among the fifty prison- ers on trial. Those Implicated are Mother Jones, the well-known labor agitator, sometimes called the angel of the miners; Charles H. Boswell, editor, of the Socialist Labor ^.rgus. Charleston; John W. Brown and George Parsons, two of the Socialist candidates for office in the fall cam- pa.gn; W. H. Hoffman, Harrison El- lis, Steve Yeager, Louis Holley, Albert Parrish and Sandford Kirk, striking miners. Smith said the dynamite was pur- chased through Charleston agents and shipped to Hansford, a lonely station on Paint Creek. The station was brok- en open and the dynamite taken away by the ringleaders in suit cases and planted along the railroad just before the military trains passed along, armed miners lying in ambush in the hillside. The Burns man was suspect- ed of being a spy that night by John W. Brown at Hansford, and, was about to be shot by the enraged miners when Brown saved his life by walking down the creek and warning him. Smith escaped to Charleston. Among the accused men are two international officials of the United Mine Workers, Charles Batley and -Paul J. Paulson. Charleston, W. Va., March 10.— Thirty-nine of the forty-nine prisoners on trial before the military commis- sion at Pratt on charges growing out of the strike in the Paint Creek region, petitioned Judge Littlepage of Kana- wha county to allow their trial to pro- ceed. This followed the confession of two of their number. \Mother\ Jones and the other labor and socialist leaders who are included in the forty-nine persons on trial, re- fused to sign the petition and still re- main defiant. Multitude That Flocked to English Seaside Resort Impressed W. D. < Howells, Veteran Traveler as He WSB Acknowledged. . \Whenever we f 11 '© were going t o Blackpool,\ write v.. D. Howels in the Atlantic, \it'se. med to fill our Eng- lish friends with surprise and pleas- ure. They asked why we were going to Blackpool, and when we tried to say they laughed the more. \We were,, in fact, so high in the' social scale through our friendships that we might never have heard .of Blackpool if it had not been for one of the most liberal of our acquaint- ances Who had noted some years be- fore our interest in the popular crowd at Llandudno, and told us we cought to see Blackpool. \He tried to enlighten our dense superiority by. explaining that Black- pool was the seaside resort beyond Liverpool of the whole cotton spin- ning and iron casting ' country, and that masters and men alike thronged It iu the season, and masters -lavished their gains and the-men thelr/earnlngs In one mad month or wild wee'k of un- stinted gayety. \Before this In writing of EngUsh things I have had occasion to intimate that many of them afforded exercise for that modesty which is always'real- ly the heart of American brag. Wheth- er the scale in England is so small generally that any variation from it seems prodigious or whether the things are really great, I am not ready to say, but In that little island there are certainly things that impress one as great. \London .for example, unquestion- ably outdoes\ any. city of ours. New York is a large town, but New York, except for., her ,h.igh grade of intelli- gent, could easily be lost in London. The o'njy thing in which we excel Eng- land beyond parallel and pe'radventure Is the- spectacular purity of our mu- nicipal administrations and our free- dom from'graft in civic affairs. \If you come, however, to some- thing like the crowd on the prom- enade at Blackpool, you have several other English crowds to compare it with. You have the crowds at Folke- stone, at Margate, at Brighton, which, although they -are vastly smaller, are so much larger than any American seaside crowds that there is no talking in the same breath except of Atlantic City alone at Easter time. \If you are there then, at that point where the myriads of the Board Walk thicken for a conscious moment under the eye of the camera scanning if! for a postal card photograph, you can have some notion of the crowd forever writhing, forever worming, squirming up and down at Blackpool. \Dreadful enough to look at, the mammoth mass became terrible when you fused yourself in its bulk. It seemed the same in bulk by night and by day; It must have slept some time, perhaps not in bulk but in detail, each atom that sank away -to slumber re- placed by another atom fresh for the vigil; of if it slept in bulk it was in some somnambulent sort, with the sense of a bad dream, a writiiing and twisting nightmare. \It was always awful to look upon, but awfullest at high noon, when it had swollen to Its hugest and was imaginably famishing for lunch with the hunger of some consuming insect horde. Possibly I am exaggerating in the 'mpression I am trying to give of the Blackpool crovd. 'Doubtless any happy couple, near wea or newly wed, of those that abounded in the mass could,prove me grotesquely mistaken, if not'wilfully false. They could say that they had the time of their lives that day at Blackpool and could ask nothing better than to repeat their transport.\ #30 § 20 16 @1S'V4, § 13 6.2S @4.7S .-:2.25<g>2.50 #1.75 .123 @25 . .21 @22 ..21 @22 ..20 '@21- ..19 @20 ..19 <§.. ..19 ..17 ..17 ..IB @13V4 @20 @11% @65 CLARKE WINS OVER BACON Georgian Surprised by Failure to Re- tain the Presidency of the United States Senate.
