LODGE SAYS DRAFT
CENSUS IS PADDED
Senator Declares Selection of
National Army So Ordered
That the South Is
(Br Associated Piwm.)
Washington, July 16. A resolution
by Senator Brandegee calling for in
formation regarding the census bu
reau's population estimates for the
army draft was adopted today by the
senate without objection after Sena
tor Lodge had Ueclared the popula
tion figures for the north were "pad
ded" and other senators had com
plained, of alleged injustice of the
Senator Brandegee presented state
ments that estimates had been in
creased for the first figures for north
ern and eastern states and lowered
in those of southern states.
"From the astonishing population
figures," said Senator Lodge, "it is
apparent that northern states and cit
ies census estimates have been pad
ded in order to make their army draft
heavier, while those of the southern
states have been reduced. It seems
when the northern and eastern states
are being most heavily taxed they
must also give more of their men for
soldiers than the southern states." ,
Senator Brandegee and Lodge also
complained against proposed exemp
tion of aliens from the draft. The
latter urged additional legislation by
congress to provide for drafting for
eigners. Butte Metal Trades

(Br Associated Pre.)
Washington, July 16. Major Gen
eral Goethals has postponed his plan
for commandeering today of private
merchant shipping under construction
in , the .United States and for con
tracting immediately for building two
government ship-building plants.1 He
acted at the request of Chairman
Denman of the shipping board, who
wants to lay the matter before the
directors of the emergency fleet cor
poration. The wooden ship controversy is in
volved. The board of directors of
the fleet corporation, it, is understood,
will insist that the general manager,
General Goethals, build more wooden
ships than he has provided for. It is
said, too, that they do not approve

of the project.
Alkali Makes Soap
Bad For Washing Hair
Most soaps and prepared shampoos
contain too much alkali, which is very
injurious, as it dries the scalp and
makes the hair brittle.
The test thing to use is Just plain
mulsif ied cocoanut oil, for this is
pure and entirely greaseless. It's
very cheap, and beats the most ex
pensive soaps or anything else all
to pieces. You can get this at any
drug? store, and a few ounces will
last the whole family for months.
Simply moisten the hair with wa:
ter and rub it in, about a teaspoon
ful is all that is required. It makes
an abundance of rich, creamy lather,
cleanses thoroughly, and rinses out
easily. The hair dries quickly and
evenly, and is soft, fresh looking,
bright, fluffy, wavy and easy to
handle. Besides, it loosens and takes
out every particle of dust, dirt and
MANY LANDS HAVE
Of Seventy-Eight Separate
Governments on Globe,
By A. R. OROH.
Fellow citizens of the land of the
free and the home of the brave, let us
give a glance at the governments of.
the world and see how far democracy
already prevails among humanity.
There are seventy-eight separate
governments upon this old globe.
Twenty-seven oi these governments
are headed by presidents, elected by
The other rulers of governments
are as follows: Seventeen kings and
one queen, six grand dukes and five
ordinary, garden-variety dukes; five
sultans, four emperors (including our
dear frierd, Wilhelm), two princes,
two ameers, one czar (since Nicholas
lost his job, one bey, one empress,
one shah, one maharajah, one grand
duchess, one kahti and one soveieign.
Subtracting the twenty-seven pres
idents we have fifty-one not-elected-
by-the-people rulers lef t,in the world.
And of these fifty-one seventeen are
in the' German empire I Wilhelm
counts twice, for he is emperor of
Germany and king of Prussia. There
are three other kings in the German
empire, six grand dukes, five ordi
nary very-day dukes and a prince.
Germany's allies, Austria-Hungary,
Turkey and Bulgaria, supply one em
peror, one sultan and one czar, re
spectively, to the rostjr of autocracy.
Twenty-one of the twenty-seven
presidents are on the American con
tinent. In the Old World they have
a president in France, Switzerland,
China (last week at any rate), Li
beria, Albania and Portugal.
Are there any presidents in the
German empire? Not so you can
notice it. How about Austria-Hungary?
Nary a president Well, then,
Turkey? No, for great is Allah.
Outside of Germany and its allies,
the autocratic rulers are found chiefly
in countries that still grope in heath
en darkness. There is the Empress
Uizero-Zeodita of Abyssinia and the
Ameer Hibulla Khan of Afghanis
tan, and the Ameer Seid Mir Alim of
Bokhara, and the Khan Asfendiar of
Khiva, nd the Sultan Seyyid Taimur
bin Turke of Oman, and the Bey Mo
hamed 1.1 Nasir of Tunis, and the
Sultan Khalifa bin Harub of Zanzi
bar. I'll bet you never even heard of
half ef those countries.
