weakness and dizziness,

very severe. A friend
told me I had tried every-
thing else, why not
Cardui ? .. . I did, and
soon saw it was helping

HOBBY PROTESTS QUARANTINE
Washington, D. C. April 6.—
Texas took the most prominent part
today in the hearing before the Fed-
eral Horticultural Board to consider
the advisability of quarantining Texas
and Louisiana on account of the pink
boll worm. The board believed it nec-
essary, in view of the prevalence of
the pest in Texas and Louisiana, to
quarantine the whole of both States,
under the plant quarantine act to pre-
vent the spread of the insect to other
Southern cotton States. This is stren-
uously objected to by Texas and Lou-
siana and large delegations from both
States were on hand today to protest
against a Statewide quarantine. Rep-
resentatives from Mississippi, Alaba-
ma and Georgia were present, alarm-
ed at the prospect of the entrance of
the insect into their States. The
chairman of the Horticultural Board
presided. Governor Hobby, introduc-
ed by Senator Sheppard, protested
against a State quarantine and de-
clared that the great Texas cotton in-
dustry should not be ruined when
there was really no necessity for it.
He said a strict quarantine of the nine
counties now infested by the pink boll
worm is all that is necessary. He de-
clared he is willing to call a special
session of the State Legislature to ap-
propriate to reimburse the farmers
who may be prevented from raising
cotton by a quarantine.
H. M. Gossett, president of the Fed-
eral Farm Loan Bank at Houston, de-
clared it would be ridiculous to quar-
antine the whole State when only nine
counties are infested. Mr. Gossett fa-
vored a non-cotton zone around the in-
Representatives Buchanan, Briggs,
and Young spoke for the Texas Con-
i gressmen and all opposed the propos-
! ed State quarantine. It is probable, in
I view of the strong arguments pre-
| sented by the Governor and the other
Texas representatives, that the Fed-
eral Horticultural Board will agree to
establish a non-cotton zone for three
years in the nine counties rather than
h quarantine of the whole State, as
the board now recognizes that it
would be unjust to quarantine 250
counties when the worm is only in
nine counties. The hearing will be
that it will be adopted by the Senate.
Mr. Wilson has indicated that he
will veto the resolution, but the Re-
publicans will endeavor to override
the veto. It may be fully as impos-
sible to muster a two-thirds majority
to set aside the veto as to ratify the
treaty, but the Republicans desire to
fix the responsibility for. “keeping us
out of peace.”

50,000 MEN IDLE, 25 RAILWAYS
TIED UP BY CHICAGO WALKOUT.
Chicago, April 7.—An unauthorized
strike of railroad employes which
started a week ago in the Chicago
switching district by the discharge
of a yard conductor, tonight had
spread until it had affected 25 rail-
roads and in Chicago had thrown
more than fifty thousand men out of
work, either directly or indirectly.
More than 10,000 union railroad
men in Chicago and several hundred
at Buffalo and at Champaign, 111.,
were on strike. Many hundred men
in Chicago packing houses were
thrown out of work for lack of cattle
Two “outlaw” organizations, brand-
ed by the established brotherhoods
as “rump” unions, had sprung up to
challenge the right of the labor heads
to lead their men.
In the face of this opposition from
within the brotherhoods of engineers,
railway trainmen, firemen and engine-
men and the Switchmen’s Union of
North America pledged their support
to the railroad officers in breaking
the walkout and to that end union
railroad men throughout the country
have been urged to report to Chicago
to serve as strikebreakers.
Managers of 25 railroads in
Chicago terminal district affected by
| the strike today agreed to give broth-
erhood officers at least another day
in which to restore normal conditions
and through their spokesmen, declar-
ed themselves confident that the
unions would succeed.
Daily Leader 3 months for $1.00.
The Weekly Leader 6 months 75c.
Wide differences of opinion existed
as to how many men had joined the
walkout. Charles Riley, vice presi-
dent of the Chicago Yardmen’s Asso-
ciation, which called the original
strike, said 14,000 switchmen and 3,-
000 engineers were idle, but railroad
officers and brotherhood heads scout-
ed his figures as far too large. They
admitted, however, that they had no
figures on which to base counter
PORTER RESOLUTION COMES TO
VOTE IN HOUSE FRIDAY.
Washington, D. C., April 7.—The
momentous struggle between Presi-
dent Wilson and the Senate over the
I Versailles Peace Treaty and its
I League of Nations covenant—a trial
of strength reminiscent of Andrew
Johnson’s conflict with Congress—
will enter upon a new phase tomor-
The House of Representatives will
begin consideration of the Porter res-
olution, declaring a state of peace
with Germany, in default of the rati-
fication of the Versallies Treaty, for
which the President and the Republi-
can irreconcilables are responsible.
The Rules Committee will present a
rule limiting amendment of the reso-
lution framed by the Republicans, to
the submission of a substitute on a
motion to recommit and providing for
a final vote at 5 p. m. Friday.
The resolution will be passed by the
House and then will be subjected to
protracted consideration in the Sen-
ate, during which time the entire bat-
tle over the treaty and the covenant
will be fought over again. Republi-
can leaders are confident, however,
Do you feel weak, diz-
zy, worn-out? Is your
lack of good health caused
from any of the com-
plaints so common to
women? Then why not
give Cardui a trial? It
should surely do for you
what it has done for so
many thousands of other
women who suffered—it
should help you back to
Ask some lady friend
who has taken Cardui.
She will tell you how it
helped her. Try Cardui.
