Conservatives Have All the Votes,
But They Have All the
VAST RESOURCES ARE
AT THEIR DEMAND
Bucharest, Roumania, Nov. 20.—
Three brothers run Roumania—Jonel,
Vintilla and Dinu Bratiano.
They represent* the present genera
tion of the Bratiano dynasty. "Rou
mania's uncrowned rulers." Jonel is
premier and Vintilla war minister.
Backing them in their leadership of
a rich country, of 54,000 square miles
and 7,600,000 inhabitants are:
Political power, material resources
Outside the fact that Jonel is prer
mier and Vintilla war minister of Rou
mania, is this one feature: The Brati
ano dynasty owns the Liberal party
that has been in power the last nine
Even whjn the conservatives were
in power, the Britianos had their way.
"The ^conservatives have votes, but
we have power," said Jonel.
With their party supporters back of
them, the Bratianos are putting into
practice their chief idea, which is to
reconcile conservative capital with
modern political and social doctrines.
This and other ideals they have stak
ed on the outcome of the war.
"In all countries," says Jonel, "capi
talism has been tied up with reaction.
This is a false association, which Rou-!
mania must be the first state to com
bat. It hampers progress and also ham
pers capitalism and industrial develop
ment. We must win capitalism for the
cause of progress. We must make re
action appear what it really is—a ten
dency as fatal to the increase of
wealth as it is to the political advance
ment of the people."
The Bratiano dynasty is the only
actually modern element in this medi
eval country. The land-owners are
iheir political enemies, although Jonel
and Vintilla, especially, are in that
class. But Jonel and Vintilla treat
their workmen .and tenants as they
want the rest of the landowning aris
tocracy to treat theirs.
The Bratianos are the "Rothchilds
of Roumania." They control a total
wealth estimated at $600,000,000,
which can go as far in Roumania as
$10,000,000,000 in the United States.
Vintilla is head of 50 trusts and is
worth $13,000,000. With this wealth
he backs the Liberal party.
Even undertakings not directly con
trolled by them are reached through
the national bank and the banks for
urban and rural credit. The dynasty
controls the railroads and shipping.
Dinu plays his biggest role here.
Jonel gets the ideas. He is the think
er, originator and schemer. Vintilla
organizes tlTem and makes them prac
ticable, for he is a business m^n. Di
nu. with his money and" pdlj^lfcal j'6w
er, helps i!o the rest.

Sparkling and vivacious—merry,
bright, alert-i* good, clear skin aftd
a natural, rosy, healthy complexion
are assured only by pure blood. It
only every man and woman could be
induced to »dopt the morning inside
bath, what a gratifying change would
take place. Instead of the thousands of
sickly, anaemic-looking pen, women
and girls, with( pasty or muddy
complexions insfead of the multi

"brain fag»" and pessimists we
should see a virile, optimistic throng

An lnsiie bath is had by drinking
each morning, before breakfast, a
glass of real hot water with a tea
spoonful of limestone phosphate in it
to wash from the stomach, liver, kid
neys and ten yards of bowels the pre
vious day's indigestible waste, sour
fermentations and poisons, thus
cleansing, sweetening and freshening
the entire alimentary canal before
putting mere food into the stomach.
Those subject to sick headache, bil
iousness, nasty breath, rheumatism,
colds and particulary those Srho have
a pallid, sallow complexion and who
are constipated very often, are urged
to obtain a quarter pound of limestone
phosphate at the drug store which
will cost but a trifle, but is sufficient
to demonstrate the quick and remark^
able change in both health and appear
ance, awaiting those who practice In
ternal sanitation. We must remem
ber that inside cleanliness is more im
portant than outside, because the skin
deec^not absorb impurities to con
taminate the blood while the pores in
the thirty feet of bowels do.
MACEDONIAN CITY IN
HANDS OF ENTENTE
Continued from Page Onsv
the country, was enabled to re-estab
lish the capital on their native soil.
A temporary capital will be immedi
ately re-established. French and Ser
bians captured the heights surround
ing the town, making it untenable.
The Macedonian town of Monastir
was evacuated during Sunday night
by the German and Bulgarian troops,
who retired to prepared positions fur
ther north. They thus withdrew from
highly unfavorable positions in the
plain, where they were exposed to ar
tillery fire from the heights to the
south and southeast of the town.
Not a Surprise.
The news of the evacuation of (Mon
astir does not come as a surprise, the
Associated Press having been inform
ed some days aj by the military au
thorities that the question as to
whether Monastir's political import
ance was great enough to justify the
military sacrifice necessary to defend
the town was being weighed by the
general staff, and that military con
siderations probably would prevail.
Monastir is located at the bottom of
a bowl surrounded on all sides by
dominating heights. It was therefore
tactically extremely unfavorable as
soon as the enemy forces gained a
footing on the rim of the bowl, as
already had been done to the south,
less than Ave miles from the town
and only a slightly greater distance
to the southwest.
Since the opening of the campaign
in the Roumanian theatre, which, as
was cabled recently, is regarded here
as the decisive theatre of the whole
war front, east and west, it was con
sidered a correct decision strategic
ally and tactically not to call upon
the defenders for heavy sacrifices and
efforts to hold the town itself.
It is pointed out in Eerlin that Mon
astir is likely to be an uncomfortable
place for the Entente allied troops,
a9 the new Bulgar-German positions
command the town in the same man
ner as it was previously commanded
i»y the enemy guns.
Politically, of course, various con
siderations urged that efforts be made
to retain Monastir, not only because
its possession by the Entente AJlies
would give the Serbian government
a local habitation in Serbian terri
tory and encourage- General Sftcr&il,
commander of the Entente allied op
erations in the Balkans, to press the
campaign, but also for its political
effect in general.
In war, however, military consider
ations must prevail over political.
The evacuation of Monastir will in a
way shift the operative difficulties
from the Bulgar-German army to Gen
eral iSarrail's shoulders. Up to the
present his forces have had the dis
tinct advantage of operating at the
end of the Monastir-Saloniki railway
and with a fairly good network of
roads in the rear.
The rail head for Field Marshal vou
Mackensen's forces, on the other
hand, is at Vales (Koprulu), from
which point there is only one road
to Monastir. This originally was a
good road, but is badly cut up by
heavy automobile traffic.
The retirement of the Germans and
Bulgars would have the effect of
bringing the attacking forces away
from their line of communication and
ihto the almost roadless region of
southwestern Macedonia and the de
fending forces correlpondingly nearer
their base of communication. As the
present withdrawal has. occurred in
the extreme southwestern sector of
the front, furthest removed from the
Trans-Siberian railroad and from the
center of operations, and as the re
mainder of the 'Macedonian front is
not affected, members of the general
staff familiar with Macedonian condi
tions insist that the loss of Monas
tir can be regarded as only of local
importance and without effect on the
general strategic situation.
It is frankly admitted that Rouman
ian attacks in the Kimpolung region,
Transylvania, southward of Dragosla-.
vele. In the Aberheth region, the Rou
manians advanced and took 100 pris
oners, cannon and two machine guns.
THE DUCKS HAVE GONE.
Hunters returning today from Long
lake and other haunts of feathered
game, report that the ducks hare gone
south for the winter. It is probable
that the light snowfall of early morn
ing sent its warning ahead and that
the birds heeded it.\The gee'se made
their departure several days ago, and
shooting is practically over for the sea
