PLAN FOR REFORMS
Frank Discussion and Unblushing
Criticism Brought Out in
PARTIES STATE DEMANDS
No Half-Way Measures Will Prove
Satisfactory, Says German
Berlin, Sunday, Aug. 26.-(Via Lon
don, Aug. 27).-If frank discussion
and unblushing criticism are capable
of bringing on parliamentary reforms
it may be said that Saturday's pro
ceedings in the Reichstag main com
mittee has given increased momentum
to the movement. To this must be
added the volume of plain spoken edi
torial comment by the Liberal news
papers which states frankly that it
will not be satisfied with half meas
ures or makeshifts.
The discussion of national politics
was continued by the committee yes
terday. Chancellor Michaelis twice
took the floor to explain his newly
'created council, made up of seven
Reichstag deputies and seven members
of the Bundesrat, over which he is
to preside. The new council will hold
its first meetings today to dliscuss the
government's reply to the papal peace
note. The social demands, Centrists,
Liberals and Progressives have agreedl
to cooperate with the government on
this issue. The various factions, howv
ever, have informed the chancellor
they have accepted the newly organ
izedl body as a provrstonary device
and considler it the harbinger of more
esubstantial and permanent measures
wvhich will secure to the Reichstag
e constitutional prerogatives and great
6-Among other demands, the coalition
wvill urge nullification of paragraph
9 of the imperial constitution which
prohibits Reichstag deputies from be
coming members of the federal coun
cil. Elimination of this restriction
wvould facilitate appointment of mem
bers of Parliament to secretaryships
which carry with them membership in
Michaelis an Auditor.
Detailed reports of yesterday's ses
sion of the main committee, at which
the various factions apparently strove
to outdlo each other in the candor
of their criticism, indicat" that the
chancellor was an attentive audlitor
nnd showed no inclination to oppose
some of the more emphatic demands.
In a statement supplementing his
speech in the forenoon he said he
wvould consenit to consider the seven
Reichstag dleputies in the new council
as representatives of their political
factions. The sesion afforded the
~'party representatives 'ample oppor
tunity to bring up their grievances.
Among them was the statement of
Mathias Erzberger, leader of the Cen
trists, that his party has not received
proper recognition in the distribution
of government honors.

The session gave the impression
that advocates of parliamentary re- 1
forms are inclined to support the
chancellor in his opinion that reorgan- I
ization cannot be undertaken hastily.
It is plain at this date, however, that
the coalition which has been augment
ed immeasurably by the adhesion of
the National Liberals now constitutes 1
an invincible Reichstag majority with i
which the chancellor must reckon
which will enter the new session next
month with a definitely outlined pro

That the majority parties are not
inclined to give- the newly created
council permanent importance is indi- 1
cated by press comment. The follow- t
ing Deputies have been elected by t
-parties to membership in the council:

While a slip of the tongue by the
chancellor and a bungled report of c
wednesday's session were directly re
sponsible for the tension of the past
week, the existence of much combus
tible material of a political and par
liamentary nature is likely to call
forth other flare-ups, on account of
the present mood andl temper of the
Reichstag majority. Wednesday's
ruction is symptomatic of the major-e

authority and responsibility and fur

GO TO CHURCH SUNDAY.
Special to The Manning Times.
We notice with supreme interest
that Governor Richard I. Manning has
designated Sunday, September 2, 1917,
as a (lay of prayer for our boys that
will soon be, and are now encamped
preparing to go to France to fight
for the honor and dignity of our
country. I have informed my people
that we will carry out the request
of the governor; in that we will meet
next Sunday and offer a special prayer
! for American victory.
I do hereby' appeal to the white
people of Manning to assist me in
having all the colored people to go to
church Sunday as per request.
You can best help by having those
that work for you to prepare one
meal on Sunday and then retire and
go to church. Governor Manning
sounded the key note when he made
the request that all churches should
meet and offer prayer on next Sunday
We all should obey this request.
The or" that fails to do so should
be looked upon as being much of a
"slacker," as the one that tried to not
register. It will not be the number
of submarines, aircrafts and battle
ships, nor large armies alone that
will win this war but it will be won
through the instrumentality of prayer.
This war was forced upon us. The
President did all he could to keel) us
out of it, almost to the dishonor of
the nation. But we are now in it
in spite of all that he did.
We must enter it prayfully. Who
knows but what this war will come
to a successful close without our boys

ASK RECEIVERSHIP FOR
SHORT LINE RAILROAD
Greenville, Aug. 28.-Stockholders
and two creditors of the Greenville

sale of the property at public auction.
It is the third time this road has ask
