the explosl6n of a cas tank.
But to make up for it. WInsted may
be "KIssless Town" tomorrow. The

If so, from that moment until 12 to

by a fine, if cf tight. And though this
Is the worst or it. It is not all.

Even the Ice cream parlors where the

Aeronautic Editor Shows Well
Down at Foot of List in
I'rglng the United States Government
to appropriate more money for aerial
armament, Alfred W. lAwson, editor of
Aircraft, has addressed letters to the
members of both houses of Congress,
showing that at present the United
States stands thirteenth in the list of
nations In regard to aeronautics. The
1'nited States has only spent J 100,000 for
acionautlcs. as against JIO.000,000 spent
by Germany, which leads the list.
Mr. I.awson declares that any uell
ecjuipped nation could lay waste Wash
ington at any time. A fleet of aero
planes and dirigibles, convoyed by
steamships, could flv above tho forts
and cities of the United States without
danger and drop explosives by the ton.
The fleet convoying the aircraft could
lay to a hundred miles at sea, out of
danger, and reprovlslon the aircraft at
often as was necessary.
It Is shown that even China might go
ahead of the United States in acio
nautlcs without a great deal of trouble,
and Japan has already got together a
flock of aeroplanes that could wreak
havoc If that nation ever attempted to
lnade this country.

Senators Lie Awake at Nights
in Attempts to Foretell What
New Executive Will Do.
Some of the Senate Democrats who
have gone ot late,, on pilgrimages to
Trenton, have been telling their col
leagues Just what sort of treatment the
new President is-going to mete out to
the "various brands of Democrats in
Congress whom he will encounter dally
after March 4. i
The question much discussed Is
whether Mr. Wilson will hobnob and
affiliate with the progressive Democrats
and hold the conservatives aloof, pick
his advisers among the conservatives
In House and Senate, or treat all alike.
TTTe President-elect has already let It
be known he will pick bis Cabinet from
aroonlt-the progressive Democrats and
thatS wants the men about him on
whoflRe will rely for counsel- to be
progressive Democrats. But his re
marks did not apply to his relations to
Democrats in Congress and that Is what
is making the statesmen who want to
stand well at the White House lie
x To Wipe Slate.
It is asserted by some of the Sena
tors that Mr. "Wilson plans to wipe the
slate March 4 and start on an even
basis with all the Democrats in Con
KTtsd. That is, he will start on tho
presumption that the Democrats In Con
gress are going to stand by the policies
which he advocates. Until he flnds
members are fighting those policies, he
will not label them and card Index
But when he advocates' what he es
teems to bfr progressive legislation, de
manded br the country, and llnds that
certain Democratic reactionaries get in
Its wayand seek to block It, then he
will deflsltely stamp such opponents of
his policies as reactionaries.
Just how much trouble those gentle
men will thereafter experience at his
hands depends on Just how strong a
character as President Mr. Wilson will
prove to be.
Tariff May Show.
It is said, moreover, that Mr. Wilson
expects it will be clearly developed in
the tariff session, in the consideration
of tariff and such other questions as
come up 'then, about how the lines are

Says Accusation of Corruption
Meant Merely as Warning to
Senator Tillman, of South Carolina,
has Issued a statement In reply to the
resolution lately adopted by the lower
house of the South Carolina legislature
calling on him to produce evidence in
support of his charges of corruption in
that body. The Senator Is alleged to
have "insulted" the legislature.
Senator Tillman said he had done
nothing but write a letter last summer
in answer to Governor Blease, in which
he charged railroad attorneys had in
fluenced the general assembly. This,
he says, was a mere warning, and nas
r reflection on none but the hold-over
Sajlng this is not the first time he
has "Insulted" the legislature and that
It will not be the last. Senator Tillman
asserts the people of South Carolina
will retlre any man when they believe
him corrupt or corruptible. He adds:
"I have boasted In my lectures in the
North that there Is not enough money
In Wall street to buy South Carolina,
and I believed It to be true. I still be
lieve It to be true, but public morals In
the State have rapidly grown bad In
the last ten years, and I am coming to
doubt whether my boast could now be
made and sustained.
"We will see the temper of the gen
eral assembly by its action In purifying
and protecting the primary. It has the
opportunity to lift the State out of the
slough of despond and disgrace In which
it now wallows."

though there were few members of his

preach at the morning service today.
Last. Sunday the minister had'prlnted
in" a local newspaper something about
what he considered lax marriage laws
and referred to the Rev.Seorge L.
Wolfe, former pastor of the church,
who bears the name of the "Marrying
Parson of Wilmington."
That night a committee of' his congre-J
gatlon, friendly towards the Rev.
Wolfe, who. at present is without a
church, asked for the vounsr preacher's
resignation. He refused to give it, andil
said ne intenaea to stay just where he
was unless the Key. Dr. John s. lwwen.
of Baltimore, .president of the annual
conference, saw fit to remove' him. Dr.
Bowen. Jt is said, has told Mr. HaaU
mon to stick to it.
Mr. Hantzmon chose for his sermon
today. "The Wicked Flee When No
Man Pursueth," and used as his text,
"Elliha's eyes were opened and he saw
chariots in the heavens chasing the
A greater portion of the attendance at
the church service this morning were
members of other congregations wh8
forsook their own churches for the day
to be on hand to take in anything that
might turn up between Mr. .Hantzmon

Nothing happened, however, except
that there was a larger attendance than

SENATE DEMOCRATS .

and to keep the Democratic leaders In
perpetual hot water. Still. Democratic
organization of the Senate Is assured.
and this is of prime importance.
The Democrats have forty-eight Sen
ators and the 'Republicans and Pro
gressive party men forty-two; as the
result of recent elections. Six are yet
to be chosen. One each is to be elected
in Delaware, New Hampshire, West,
Virginia and Wyoming, and two In Illi
Delaware will elect a Democrat and
the Democrats are hopeful of getting
one Senator from Illinois. This would
bring the Democrats up to fifty out of
a total of ninety-six.
Deadlocks Axe Tight
Deadlocks in New Hampshire and
West Virginia are so tight that it Is not
certain they can be broken: A deadlock
in any one State will reduce the total
In the Senate to nlnety-flve and forty
eight. Is a majority of that number. So
the effect of a deadlock will be to help
the Democrats. Besides, In case of a
tie. Vice President Marshall -would
throw in his vote with the Democrats
and thus tip the scales their way.
One effect of the closeness of the
Senate situation will be to compel Dem
ocratic Senators to attend the sessions
of the Senate. Otherwise, the Republi
cans may "put one over" on them.

twenty new faces and there will prob
