France Talking of
Jail Bird Slackers
Sport Calendar Today
(Correspondence of The Associated Press.)
Paris. Oct. 24. The orotection
from German shells enjoyed by con
victs through their own misdeeds,
while the lawabiding men of France
able to bear arms are making such
heavy sacrifices, has raised a dis
cussion as to the propriety of sending
to the front of all able-bodied men
now in prison.
"Jail-bird slackers" is the name
given to men sentenced in 1914 or
previously to periods of confinement
that have carried them over the first
two years of the war. A law recently
introduced in the Chamber of Depu
ties by Pierre Rameil and .Andre
Hesse contemplates the incorporation
of certain categories of these men.
The proposition was received with
considerable satisfaction until a study
of the question developed forcible
objections. A great many people
held that It would be according too
much honor to allow convicts to
fight at the front alongside the gal
lant soldier of the republic. Others
held that the results would scarcely
justify the experiment while the
number of recruits that could be
obtained this way, estimated at the
4,000, would furnish too small an ef
fort to justify the risk. It would be
necessary to provide an organization
absolutely separate and distinct from
any other arm of the service to pre
vent contact between convicts and
the soldiers of the regular army.
A great many prisoners have beg
bed for the privilege of a suspension
of their sentence to permit them to
go to the front, and have thus ap
pealed with some force to the senti
ment of charitably minded people.
There are precedents, however, show
ing that the men who have gone to
the front to clear themselves of stains
upon their record have not in every
case justified the hope that was en
tertained. Chinese Financier
Plans Big Keform
(Correipondenoe of The Associated Press.)
Peking, Oct. 16. Chen Chin-tao,
the new minister of finance, has out
lined plans for financial reform and
prepared estimates on the possible
income of China under effective ad
ministration, which shows an annual
total of $49,000,000 silver. .
This amount is in decided contrast
to the recent annual receipts of the
central government, which have been
about $70,000,000 silver. Of this sum,
the minister of finance says that only
$30,000,000 silver can be absolutely
The receipts of the central govern
ment have dwindled terribly under
revolutionary influence. At present
less than half a dozen provinces are
remitting to Peking, and finances are
in a precarious condition.
Chen Chin-tao has advised that a
foreign loan , of $1,000,000,000 silver
should be contracted at once. Of
this sum he - would' use $25,000,000
for the resumption of specie payment
on the notes of the Bank of China
and the Bank of Communication. For
the disbandment of surplus troops,
$20,000,000 more will be required. Re
organization in the various provinces
would claim an expenditure of
$AUO0,UUU, and he suggests an ap
propriation of $6,000,000 for the inv
provement of railways, and $40,000,
000 for administrative expenditure.
An elaborate plan for the reform
of tax collection is outlined, including
tne making of a proper budget ana
the reformation of the currency sys
tem. He would establish an inspectorate-general
for the supervision of
tax collection throughout the republic,
fashioned somewhat alter the reor
ganization foreign bankers effected
to collect salt taxes pledged to them
as security for a reorganization loan.
The minister of finance estimates
$120,000,000 can be realized from the
landax under proper supervision.
Of Kaiser Hit by
London, Nov. 7. A -claim that two
'dreadnoughts were hit by the British
submarine which yesterday was re
ported launching a torpedo at and
striking a German dreadnought in
the North Sea, is contained in a
further report received from the com
manding officer of the submarine, it
was officially announced today. The
two dreadnoughts claimed to have
been struck were battleships of the
The naval registers show five dread
naught battleships of the Kaiser class,
all completed between October, 1912,
and August, 1913. Besides the name
ship of the class, they are the Fried-
rich der Grosse, Kaiserin, Prinz Re
gent Luitpold and Koenig Albert.
The displacement of each is 24,700
tons, length 564 feet, beam ninety-five
feet and draft twenty-seven feet.
Their armaments consisted of ten
twelve-inch guns, fourteen six-inch
guns, twelve twenty-four pounders
and four anti-aircraft guns. They are
equipped with five torpedo tubes,
submerged. The Kaiser's best speed
record is given as 23.6 knots.
Reports from British sources that
the Kaiser was sunk in the Jutland
sea fight last May were semt-official-ly
denied in Berlin. It was stated
that the Kaiser was only twice light

BUGGY BUILDERS STILL BUSY
In Spite of Automobiles Their Busi
ness seems to tie Hom
Every year since 1872. when few
trades or lines of industry had na
tional organizations or annual conven
tions, the carriage builders ot the
United States have gathered in some
city, alternately in the cast and west,
to talk business and have a good time.
The years since 1872 have brought
some amazing changes in transporta
tion, but the carriage builders are still
doing business and their announce
ment of their forty-fourth annual con
vention in Cincinnati next month does
not indicate that they are downhearted
by the probability that another year
will see one motor car in this coun
try to every twenty-five inhabiants.
There are fewer carriage builders
than there used to be, but they still
do an amount of business that will
surprise some persons. The figures
for 1914, recently made pubiic by a
special census bulletin, show 1,187,000
horse-drawn vehicles of all kinds made
m the country that year, of which
55R.OOO were buffQ-ies. The total value
was $135,793,357 and 5,320 establish
ments were included in the enumeration.
The motor car is coming and com
ing fast, as some of us may have ob
served, but it is not putting the horse
out of business any more than the
railway or the trolley car or the
bicycle did and it is not likely to in
our generation or the next. The coun
try is big enough for millions of motor
cars without shutting off the demand

Peking, Nov. 7. Wu Ting Fang
has been appointed minister of for

approved today by the virtually unan

Two previous selections of Premier

terms of service at Washington he
gained a national reputation for his
picturesque personality and his wit.
He was regarded at Washington as
an exceptionally . capable diplomat
and a friend of the United States.
During the Boxer uprising of 1900 he
succeeded in getting through a mes
sage to the American minister, Mr.
Conger, who, with his colleagues, was
in the compound ' in Peking, and
whose fate was a matter of concern
to the State department. His sym
pathies were manifestly with the
United Mates during the troubles and
this led to his recall. In 1907 he was
again appointed minister at Washing

Wu Ting Fang is a pronounced lib

revolution which led to the over

Art Renascense in
Wake of World War
(Correspondence of the Associated Press.)
Rome, Oct.. 22. That the war will
result in a rebirth of architectural art
in vaster and more beautiful buildings
than the coliseum or the American
skyscraper is the opinion of Dr. Jesse
Benedict Carter, director of the Amer
ican academy in Rome, who has just
been appointed by the French gover
nor to deliver the Harvard series of
lectures this winter before twelve of
its provincial universities.
Dr. Carter expressed this opinion In
the Roman forum during an inter
view with The Associated Press, just
after his first annual lecture there, a
lecture which was attended by Am
bassador Thomas Nelson Page and
other Americans. Said Dr. Carter:
"An art renaissance has two basic re
quirements, first a crisis, then the con
tributed wealth of a few people. This
war has furnished both. Let me ex
plain the second requirement. While
this war has impoverished a majority
of the people of Europe, it has en
riched a lot of contractors and muni
tion manufacturers, who after the war
will have more money than they can
spend. Such men have ever become
art patrons, stimulators,' rather than,
buyers of old art treasures, as hap
pens in countries where there are a
great many millionaires.
"This war will surely bring a
healthy reaction in art. It means the
death of cubism and other follies. It
will bring the intense suffering and
the sympathy therefor which results
in great art productions. One of the
peculiarities of the new artistic tem
perament will be an apparent indif
ference to suffering. I nave observed
during my war travels everywhere'
this apparent indifference among peo
pie who I knew were suffering des
perate personal losses.
"The new art mind will turn out
products that will astonish by their
beauty and by their bigness. This
war has been an inconceivably im
mense thing and it is making our
minds accustomed to immeasureably
big objects. . .. . ..
