promise that there will be "pie" for
all those who earn it, after the com

in Washington hall last evening. The
chairmen of the ward committees and
the precinct men were there. The

punctuated with pyrotechnics and pro
fanity, to the (ielight of his hearers.

said Mr. Piatti. "And if we are suc

will have at least 200 offices to give
out in the county. --

and cuts' down the republican ma

just as much as the man that lives
in a democratic ward and increases
the democratic majority. But you've
got to work. You've got to get the
democrats registered and get them
out, election day.

ALLIES REPLY TO
Renewed Promises Given Every
Effort Will Be Made to '
TEXT IS NOT MADE PUBLIC
Washington, Oct. 13. Identical
memorandums from the British and
French governments replying to the
American protest against seizures of
neutral mails, were delivered today
to the State department by the em
bassies here. The text was not made
public, but the allies are understood
to give renewed promises that every
effort will be made to minimize delay
and annoyance caused by examina
tion, but to insist upon certain legal
rights in regard to mails which the
United States has denied.
The allies claim that as the United
States admits the right of censorship
for purely war purposes, it cannot
rightfully object to reasonable de
lays inevitable to that censorship.
