WASHINGTON o-iotwr 24 -The Na-
tional capital has nu representative In
uoDgTas and for that reason H U fra-
quently made the victim of legislative
axparlments. It ts also in the matter of
its lawi and lefrislailve regulation at the
mercy of a committee in the house and
a committee In the senate whose mem
bers are responsible tu no one if they
choose to saddle itpun the citizeits the
lraiulnses and itianers that will enable
corporations t'j exploit the people. Heing

house and senate committees ori 'llstrict
alfati h do not t Ind it necessary to Heed

The man at the head of the house dis-
trict committee Is Samuel 8. 8ml th of
Michigan who It 1.- cuarged. leans 11
his aifectlonH too stroi.iy toward the Ip-
terestH uf the corporations controlling
pbhlic franchises in VHytiington It Ij
charged against Mr. Smith thut he is re-
HponMble lor the failure of tne bill giving
Washington cheaper gun. t'racttcally ail
Wathlr.gton was ua. k of tills demand and
Mr. Smith' committer reported favorably
tbe bill for heaper but Mr. 8mlta
refused to call tiie ineawiu't: up for a vote
and thus throttled the meanure.
Although not being able to pass Judg-
ment on Representative Smith at the
polls the Washington puhhc through ttu
efforts of an enterprising paper the
Washington Times ban Muccoeded In put-
ting Its case squarely before the con-
stituents of the Michigan representative.
A recent Issue of the Times devotes a
page to Mr. Smith's record which has
created consternation among his frleuda
and may result In the let ilon of Frank
L. Dodge the democrat!- nominee for
representative in the Htxth Michigan dis-
trict who has made tremendous Inroad
on Smith's support.
New Bubberbearing Tree.
The American department of commerce
and labor has been led by recent favor-
able reports of the new rubber bearing
trees the palo Colorado to institute
minute Investigation as to the results anl
the reported great future possibilities oi
this tree. The investigation has been in-
spired probably by the numerous re-
Quet6 for information from electrical ana
other manufacturing interests that are
largely dependent on the rubber marke..
Everybody except possibly the rubber
trust appears to have been caught nap-
ping by the guayule when the possibilities
of that shrub as a rubber producer wet
first exploited a few years ago. The pro-
duction of guayule rubber has reached
enormous proportions. Consul Charles M.
Freeman at Durango. Mexico advising
the department of commerce and labor
that the exportatlons of guayule to thd
United flutes from hie consular district
alone has risen from J126.UOO In l'.05 to
;x2tj0000 during the fiscal year ending
June 3D 190.
The wonderful success reaped from the
insignificant guayule shrub is responsible
for the Immediate Interest that has been
shown In the palo Colorado or cucuraciio
rubiwr tree the sap of which is said to
contain Z's 1-3 of pure caioutchouc.
Practically the only Information which
the department of commerce and labor
has on the palo Colorado tree is con-
tained In a preliminary report from Con-
sul Freeman of Durango' Mexico who
has sent to the department along wltn
his report small pieces of the soTldllieJ
sap or the tree exactly as it comes from
the pan after being exposed to the sir
for a few hours. Several tons of the sap
of this tree have been gathered and ex-
perimented with by promoters. The re-
sult of the experiments have iot been
made public but the fact of bonding
large tracts of land by these promoterj
would Indicate that they had great con-
fldemo of the ultimate outcome.

Consul Freeman writes: "This tree growj

tion of from U' to 4000 feet above sea

flN A CLASS OF ITS OwW
DISTINCTION in BOYS'
THERE is quite a .difference between the boy oi today and the o.ne of five
years ago. So it is with the clothing. Boys change their ideas as often as do
the clothes makers and the home oi the leading cloth fashions is 77)6 BOVS'
StOfC. No new idea can escape our eagle eyes. We re always on the watch
for something different for the boys and the extreme difference in the modeling
of this season s garments from any previous year together with the more con-
servative models are all to be found here.
We do not claim to know it all but we are in position to show that we
know what the proper things are for the boys and little fellows.
