Calmlnal Coo ft Judge Will Ran on
Sunday Observance Platform.
KANSAS CITY. Mo., Feb. 13. -Judge
William T. Wallace, of the criminal court
of this city, who recently has been making
a vigorous campaign for Sunday observance,
today announced his candidacy for ' the
democratic nomination for governor of
Missouri. His platform declares for "the
state-wide and permanent enforcement of
our Sunday liquor laws." "
Judge Wallace's crusade-has resulted in
the indictment of hundreds of actors,
actresses and theatrical managers and at
taches for the violation of the law making
It a misdemeanor to perform unnecessary
labor on Sunday and he has placed them
under, bonds amounting In the aggregate
close to $100,000. Tuesday he ordered fou
prominent theatrical managers to Jail be
cause they failed to furnish proper bond
and they were only kept from going behind
the bars by securing a writ of habeas
corpua. He has closed hundreds of pool
halls, cigar Btorcs, barber shops and other
small businesses on the Sabbath and the
county grand Jury as a result of his activity
continues weekly to Indicate theatrical per
sons who violate the law.. '
His platform contains these characteristic
declarations: .
The restoration and preservation of the
Sabbath Is one of the greatest moral prob
lems In the life of the republic. The la
borer loiiK fur one day In seven as a day
of rest as he longs for Immortality In the
great beyond. And this rest Is an Inalien
able right which human greed should never
be nermltted to wrest irom nun. it
should be protected by the strong arm of
the civil Dower.
The Bumtay tneaier is srs aemoranzing as
the Sunday saloon and should De sup
pressed. If I am elected, by the plenary
powers of the governorship, our Bunuay
laws shall be enforced throughout tUe
state, not with narrowness and intoler
ance, but with due regard to the necessi
ties of the advanced civilization of our
lntemrerence Is the greatest single enemy
of the human race. That every murderer
tried so far since 1 have occupied tne
criminal bench has been traceable to in
toxicants and that more than 75 per cent
of other crimes have been due to the sama
cause has put me Inexorably against tho
oocn saloon.
I am heartily in favor of local option
and if elected will urge the passage of a
law extending It to cities.
The next legislature sliould submit for
the people's suffrage a constitutional
amendment for a etale-wlde prohibition. If
it becomes a law during my administration
It will be enforced.

Chief of C Staff' Submits Increased
Schedule for' Enlisted Men.'
WASHINGTON, .' Feb. 13. -General Bell,
chief of staff, United States army, today
recommended In person to the house com
mittee ori mllltary'affalra an increased
pay schedule for enlisted men of the army,
along the lines laid down In the Dlck
Capron bill, but differing somewhat ' In
scale. ' '
ills recommendations Contained four dis
tinct features. Creation of ' the grade of
warrant officer, for the promotion of de
serving1 noncommissioned officers!' readjust
ment of Initial rates 'of pay so that they
range from $15 to $42 as against the range of
from $10 to $70 In the navy; cash bonus of
three months pay for re-enlistment; and
an Increase of from fl to $9 In pay for
high attainment In marksmanship. The
corresponding increase In the navy Is from
$2 to $10. It was estimated by General
Bell that If these schedules are adopted
the average Increase In pay of enlisted
men will be 3J.3 per cent, making the
average monthly pay $23.64 In the army
as against $33 In the navy.
In conclusion he said:
"I cannot too strongly urge the adoption
of this schedule In Its four essential fea
tures. If any one of these four features is
omitted the whole planl will be very much
weakened and the benefit to the service
materially decreased."
General Bell recommended Increase of
pay for regular army officers as suggested
In the Hayward plan.

Italian Foreign Minister Details Con
ditions as They Exist.
Colony Devotes Attention to Produc
tion of Cotton vrltu Hope of
Commercial Progress -Experiments
ROME, Feb. M.-Forelgn Minister Tlt
tronl answered an Interrogation In the
Chamber of Deputes today regarding the
raid some few weeks ago upon Lugh. the
furthermost Italian station In the1 Interior
of Italian Somallland, by 2,000 Abysslrllans.
He made a lengthy and exhaustive expo
sition of the history of the station.
Lugh, he said, had been occupied by Italy
In IW as the result of a treaty with the
sultan of Iugh. Thw sultan, however, at
the same time concluded another treaty
with King Menellk of Abyssinia, and con
sequently Menellk always had sustained
the potentate of Lugh. Lugh, the .foreign
minister declared, was not Included In the
possessions of Italy.
Ah Important and Interesting part of
Signor Tittonl's address and one-that gave
a key to the situation, waa when he said
that shortly before the raid King Menellk
had Insisted on a delimlnatlon of the fron
tier on the ground that tr do so would
give Italy denlte possession of Lugh and
Its territory. King Menellk was to re
ceive pecuniary compensation, ti he did
In 1WK) when the frontier of Erythrea was
dellmlnated. Italy agreed to negotiate on
this basis. " '
Wireless Telegraphy In District.
Continuing, Signor Tlttonl announced that
a system of wireless telegraphy In Somali
land and Erythrea would be ready by the
end of April and that this, together with
the agreement with King Moncllk regarding
the gradual submission of the tribes who
are still rebellion, would ensure the se
curity of the colony before the rebels had
an opportunity to reach an -understanding
with the Mad Mullah, which might make
the situation more serious. In order to
further the work of pacification the mili
tary foroes in Somallland are 4o be raised
to 3,400 natives under the command of forty
six Italian oflcrTs. The, causes that led to
the raid on the Lugh never had been made
clear, the foreign minister satd; King Mene
llk still disclaimed responsibility and
promised to see that those who were ac
countable received befitting punishment. .
The foreign . minister touched on the
growing commercial prosperity of Somali
land and said that In the last ten years
Hhe local commerce had increased ISO per
cent. Two-thirds of the Importations Into
the colony consisted of American woven
goods. . The colony had high hopes regard
ing the cotten cultivation recently under
taken, and cotton can be produced In
Somallland cheaper thun In Egypt. Ex
periments have been made with American,
Egyptian ond Australian cotton pfiTfits, and
when this Industry gets under way Signor
Tlttonl hopes to direct Italian Immigration
Xo the country.

New York's Fashionable Thoroughfare
and Hotel Ht. Ife-gis..
For half a century Fifth Avenue has
been the select residential thoroughfare
of New York, the most fashionable city1
street in Amorlsa. Formerly private
residences, many of them the homes of
mlllonalres, lined this beautiful street,
but in recent years a few palatial hotels
have entered this select circle, and soci
ety has set Its seal of approval upon
these creations for public comfort and
entertainment by a liberal patronage.
At the social center of 'this famous
thoroughfare, and only four blinks from
Central Park, stands the St. Regis, a
hotel of elegance and reflnment. It Is
thfe chosen permanent home of many
people who once lived In near-by resi
dences, and also the temporary home of
many hundreds of transient visitors to tho
The St. Regis waa conceived, and con
structed with the Idea of perfect con
formity with Its select environment, and
those who share its hospitality are cer
tain to find the utmost comfort and en
joyment, with entire freedom from dis
cordant elements and distracting influ
ences, Within its portals you may enjoy
the best that money can buy, and much
which your money cannot buy.
Yet, with all that these facts Imply,
the St. Regis is not above the means of
the averags person, and it particularly
Invites transient patronage. Its charges
ao not exceed those of first-class hotels
generally. In fact, In proportion to the
comforts provided, they are even leas. A
large well furnished room may be had
for M or one with bath in connection for
16 a day; or a parlor, bedroom and bath
for 112 and upwards; while restaurant
charges are at standard rates.
Such being the case why not choose the
St. Regis as your horns when in New York?

TOKIO, Feb. 13. After an exciting fir
bate, lasting six hours, which developed
Into a riot on the floor of the
House of Representatives, tho financial
budget was raased by a majority of 102.
Speakers on both" sides occupied n long
time, and toward the lat they howled nt
the chair and charged favoritism, the op
posing members demanding an apology.
The chair suspended the session for half
an hour, and upon resuming tho chair
apologised handsomely to tl.e opposition.
Impressive speeches wero made during
the debate, all making a point of the fea
ture that more than one-half of the budget
was expended in armaments. It was also
urged that the fiscal measure of the gov
ernment did not contain provisions to
prevt-nt an outflow ot gold, while the bal
ance of trade had a tendency against
Japan, fear being expressed that tho basis
of the gold reserve inight be endangered.
Upon the side 'of the ministry, the principal
speakers eloquently argued that It was
both unwise and dangerous publicly to dis
cuss the nation's finances from a pessimis
tic standpoint.' thereby cheating unneces
sary alarm ahroaq. Ho called attention to
the natural resources of Japan, which wfcro
