Five Committee Vacancies.
Five members of the. executive com
mittee must be elected this year. Ordi
narily three are elected, but on account
of several removing- from the state dur
ing; the last year it was necessary to
elect five this year.
These are elected by congressional dis
tricts. The second district, which Is the
district in which Omaha is located, is
the only district that haa a committee
man holding over. Consequently none Is
to be elected from the second district
There are necessarily twenty-five candi
dates for these five places as by the con
stitutional provision there must be five
nominated for each of the five places.
Within the next ten days the official
ballots are to go out to the teachers all
over the state, members of the associa
tion. This will mean the mailing of 4,183
ballots. Besides containing the names of
all these candidates for the offices the
ballot will contain the names of Omaha
next convention. The teachers will reg
ister their preference on this matter, also.

The minister of foreign affairs, Lu
Cheng Hsiang, made this statement to
M. Obata, secretary of the Japanese lega
tion, in explaining why. In Its opinion the
government could not legally defer the
decision of the people concerning the
proposal to re-establish a monarchy.
The foreign minister contended China
was misrepresented by reports that hasty
action was contemplated and pointed to
the advanced stage which the elections
already had reached. He assured M.
Obata, the Chinese government was con
sidering the friendly advice of the powers
in the same spirit In which it was offered.
It is reported from a reliable source that
the government may request the council
of state, acting as parliament, to legal-

restoration should it finally be decided

ported to have been shot, arrived
here early today from Villa Verde,
twenty-two miles south, in Sonora.
Weary from long marching a-foot
and suffering from the nervous
strain of having been thrice con

Americans almost dropped in their
tracks after crossing the line and

Kitchener Goes to
Near East and May
Leave the War Post
LONDON, Nov. 6. The Post says that
Earl Kitchener, secretary for war, has
been entrusted with an Important mission
to the near east and already has de
parted from London.
"It is generally believed," says the
Post, "that Earl Kitchener's business will
j necessitate a stay so prolonged that It
will be necessary to fill his place at the
I war office before long. It is true that he

' his present errand makes It certain that
his rcblgnatlon la omy delayed.

Kitchener had placed his resignation as

of the king has brought forth an official
report to the contrry.
According to the Pally Graphic, Ekrl
Kitchener saw the king Thursday night.
as wai announced yesterday at the
king's own request.
The Graphic, urging the government
not to delay dlpclos'ire of the actual
facts, suggests that Lord Perby, who Is
now In charge of HrltUh recruiting,
would make an excellent war minister.
The policy of tne British government
In respect of both the Dardanelles expedi
tion and the Scrblun campaign has been ;
subjected to severe criticism In England,

by personal Inspection the proper policy
for Pvlnsk or to supervise a move of Im
portance already decided upon.

PLANS FOR MAKING TRIP EASY
Members of Tangier temple, An-
cleot Order of the Mystic Shrine,
have completed their plans for the
ceremonial session and grand car
nival of indoor sports, to be held
Friday, November 19, and It gives
I romlse of being one of the most ln-
slructlve and enjoyable functions In
the history of Shrinedom, so far as
Omaha Is concerned. Besides the
members of Tangier, It Is expected
that there will be present large num-
ters of Shrlners from out In the state
end from over In Iowa.
The program that haa been Issued and
which contains the menu of the good
things to be served for local Phrlnera
and visitors, tarries on Its front page
a picture of the new Mosonlo building,
which Is also to be the future home of
the nobles of Tangier. This building, the
plans for which have been prepared and
which will bo erected on tho quarter
block on Pouglas street, Just west of
the Hotel Fontenelle, will be eight stories
high, fire proof In every sense of the
word, and with the , exception of the
lower story, win be used exclusively for

New nalldlne; Next Year.
The new Maeonto temple and future
home of the Bhrlne will be completed

put In this winter and that the work
of construction will start early next
year. In oonneetl m herewith, The Bee

what it will look like when completed.
