Booker T. Washington, president of Tuskegee Institute, and Henry A. Ulrich, a dog fancier would possibly be heading toward court unless they would reach an out-of-court settlement.

This is a lengthy article which continues on page three.
Also within this issue is the "Funeral of John B. M'Donald", the builder of the New York subway system. The subway power was shut off and lights darkened for two minutes, every train stopped and every guard reverently removed his hat.
