sistiis of tlie Klks and a few of
their fi b onds enjoyed the afternoon

Many will he surprise d at the
splendid arrangements of the apart
meats since the building lias been
remodeled. They are models of
convenience and from the point of
decorating ad finish they are eeV*
talnly beautiful. While the recep

they are so arranged as to be sep
erate apartment*. The billiard
room opens off the reception room

Oppose Increase in Postage On

Washington, f ob. IThe reply of
tlie periodical publishers association
to tli- statement of Postmaster Gen
eral Hitchcock in support of his pro
posal to increase the postage on the
advertising portions of large maga
zines was made in the form of it
statement by the postal committee of
the association.
"Mr. Hitchcock entirely Ignores,"
the committee says, "the fact that sec

Mr. Hitchcock Instances one maga

that tiiis periodical's recent increase
in advertising rate resulted in a protit
of $917,100. or enough to pay its post

long distance accounting is obvious
HliiTi il is explained that the Ameri

, inn , deliver and administer nearly
twice as much as the publishers nets
from subscriptions.
i “The difference made up from ad
vertising is given to the subscriber in
his oppoitunity to purchase a much
i belter article than his subscription
price alone will produce. The postal
committee of the periodical publish
ers’ association have obtained the ex
act figures from the books of the ac
count of the five standard monthly
magazines which carried the most ad
vertising in 1909.
“The aggregate tinal net profits of
those five magazines are less than
one tenth of the aggregate advertising
Income. The reader gets the balance.
“This operaition of large advertis
ing receipts passed over to the reader

St. Petersburg, Kob. 1,V Itloting at
tlic University of St. Petersburg was
renewed with the possible result that
every student in Russia will go upon
strike. The students of the University
of Tomsk, at Tomsk, Siberia, sent
word to the leader of the students
here that they, too, would pursue a
policy of violence unless demands
were granted. So serious Is the situa

The police made 200 additional ar

adopted a policy of secrecy.

That or Any Other State Has the Au

For All Purposes.
Topeka, Feb. 13.—The supreme
court decided that Kansas needs no
constitutional amendment to enforce
the absolute prohibition of the sale
and manufacture of intoxicating li
quors. A statute to that effect is suf
ficient. At the same time the court
held that a constitutional amendment
does not in any sense diminish the
force of the situation in any way.
The derision also holds the string

The case came up to the supreme
court from Sedgwick county, from a
suit by the stale against Michael
Weiss. The court ruled that Kansas
or any other state has ample author
ity to prohibit the sale and manufac
ture of intoxicating liquors within its
The law of 1909 hermetically sealed
the liquor situation in Kansas. Up to
its passage, liquor could be bought for
mechanical, scientific and medicinal
purposes as a matter of constitutional
right, but that statute wiped out those
privileges, and has made he situation
absolutely air-tight.
Weiss, in whose case this decision
was handed down, was arrested at
Wichita for selling liquor and con
victed. lie appealed to supreme court
on the ground that his sales were
for medicinal purposes and that the
legislature did not have the right to
stop the sale of liquor for purposes
allowed by the constitution.
The force of the decision is that a
prohibitory law' in Kansas would be
constitutional even though tho orig
inal prohibitory amendment of 1880
had never been submitted and passed.
Both Houses Have Stopped Their In
troduction and Will Grind Out
What They Have.
Topeka, Feb. 13.—The embargo on
the introduction of bills in both
houses of the legislature now is on.
In the house a total of 1,012 bills
have been introduced to date, and 285
have been guillotined. In the senate
648 have been introduced, and the ax
has fallen upon 142.
Woman suffrage was passed and
has the governor’s signature.
The house spent all afternoon in
committee of the whole and passed
thirteen bills to third reading. Among
them was the Goddard bill, providing
that the votes cast % inpiatbs of the

The Keene bill providing that the
guilty party in a divorce action must

The senate has passed the Avery
bill, a recording fee of 50 cents for

holds that this fee cannot be collected

The Iowa Senator Thinks It Strange
That His Position Should
Be in Doubt.
New York, Fob. 13.—Senator Albert
R. Cummins of Iowa spoke in advo
cacy of the Canadian reciprocity
agreement before the Union League
club of Brooklyn. Commenting upon
the fact that some curiosity had been
expressed as to what ,, his position
would be upon the proposed trade
agreement, the senator said it seemed
strange to him that, after having ad
vocated Canadian reciprocity in every
part of the country for ten years
“when most of its present advocates
were denouncing it,” his attitude
should bo in doubt.
“1 went down in defeat for it more
