The awakened passengers in the
Pullman peered out of their berths to
see the headlight of the freight en

There was a dense fog, and the

Just as the passenger train came to

60. DONAGHEY
ENFORCES LAW
Appears at Hot Springs Sunday I
With Head of Militia to
Stop Violations.
Western Newspaper Union News Service
Hot Springs, Ark.-Notwithstanding
the serious protest made by the State a
Baptist Association to prevent auto I
races being held on the Oaklawn track
here ud and the of Gov
.e 3 etsW. -w:eOs a e and Gin.
B. W. Green, head of the state militia,
who made a hurried trip from Little
Rock to see that the law was enforc
ed, the program was carried out in
tell.
No admission was charged for the
races, and the fact that there was a
free gate lost the State Fair Associa
tion, which had contracted with the
American Automobile Association to
bold races, very nearly $5,000. Short
ly before the first event started offl
deals of the fair association made an
nouncement in all parts of the
grounds, requesting those present to
contribute the amount they would have
paid had an admission been charged.
A committee of 20 well-known citizens
took up a collection, and close to $1,
-00 was realized in this manner.
When Governor Donaghey declared
no admission could be charged many
thought the races were off. Hundreds
of persons had come from Little Rock,
Pine Bluff, England, Conway, Malvern
and surrounding towns, and a majority
of these returned to their homes on
the Rock Island train leaving here at
1:30. Governor Donaghey also left on
the same train. When he reached
Hot Sprinpgs he sent for officials of
the State Fair Association and inform
ed them that he would stop the races
if an admission were charged. There
is no law to prevent racing when the
events are free. The governor said
he would have prevented the races
altogether had he been possessed of
authority.
News that Governor Donaghey and
General Green had arrived from Little
Rock to stop the races soon spread to
all parts of the city and caused the
greatest excitement. The chief execu
tiveiwas bitterly condemned by many
for his interference. It was declared
that Governor Donaghey had been
given a wrong Impression of the state
fair in the telegram sent by the Bap
tist convention.

-RATES FOR CANAL Y
ARE ESTABLISHED
President Taft Issues Procla- S

Western Newspaper Union News Service. V
Washington.-President Taft has is
sued a proclamation fixing the rates V
that the foreign shipping of the a
world shall pay for passage through tl
r sag canal The l rce ation, ti
made undet atilorify of the *n-al -
act passed by Congress in August, es- tl
tablishes a merchant vessel rate of
$1.20 per ton of actual carrying ca- n
racitv, with a reduction of 40 per m
cent on ships in ballast. -
The provisions of the proclamation
are as follows: e
1. On merchant vessels carrying J
passengers or cargo, $1.20 per net ees- c
sel ton-each 100 cubic feet-of ac
tual carrying capacity.
2. On vessels in ballast without P
passengers or cargo, 40 per cent less I
than the rate of tolls for vessels with n
" passengers or cargo. t
3. Upon naval vessels other than v
transports, colliers, hospital ships and a
supply ships, 50 cents per displace
ment ton.
I 4. Upon army and navy trans- 1
port, colliers, hospital ships and sup- a
ply ships, $1.20 per net ton, the ves- e
sels to be measured by the same rules
i as are employed in determining the
net tonnage of merchant vessels a
"The secretary of wpr will pre I
t pare and prescribe such rules for the c
measurement of vessels sad such
i "ations as may be necessary and
t proper to carry this proclamation into i
. faull force and effect." c
s American coastwise shipping was I
e exempted from toll payments by c
e Congress. It was to this provision
I of the act that Great Britain diplo
a matically protested. No reference to
f the incident was made in the presi- I
dent's proclamation.
d American naval vessels are exempt
e ed without specific mention, either in 1
o the act of Congress or the proclama
e tion, because the authorities believed
i. It unnecessary to explain the useless
y ness of payment from its Navy De
d partment pocket to the one belonging
n to the Treasury Department. The
;e rates named are practically the same
as will be in force at the Sues canal
next year.
The report shows that a foreign
traffic of about 9,000,000 tons may be
expected through the canal during
the first two years of operation, a
traffic of more than 11,000,000 tons in
1921, and 14,000,000 tons in 1925. Pro
s fessor Johnson estimated that an in
crease of 60 per cent a decade in tcn
nage could Le expected. making the
canal self-suner' tig in twenty years.

WILSON lTO G LL
SPECIAL SESSION
Sets Date Immediately After
Inauguration---To Fulfill
Pledges.
Western Newspaper Union News Service.
New York. - Governor Woodrow
Wilson announced that .immediately
after his inauguration as president of
the United States he would call an ex.
traordinary session of ongress to
the purpose of revising the tariff.
The president-elect sailed for Ber
muda Saturday for a vacation and
will return December 16. His state
ment follows:
"I shall call Congress together in
extraordinary session not later than
A?ril 15. I shall do this not only be
cause I think that the pledges of the
party ought to be redeemed as
t promptly as possible, but also because
aI know it to be in the interest of busi
i ness that all uncertainty as to what
the particular items of the tariff re
I vision are, be substantially removed
i as soon as possible."
The governor said he had nothing
further to say. Most of the opinions
i- he had received from public men
'- seemed to be in favor of an extra
t- session, he declared.
s The governor did not Intend to ex
e press himself about an extra session
so soon after his election. Although
he has favored the idea of an extra
c session because the present arrange
h ment would not bring the new Con
4 gress into session until 13 months
o after its election, he had expected to
spend more time in ascertaining pub
a lic opinion. With the time to be con
y sumed in discussion the governor felt
n that if an extra session were not
- called, the benefits of tariff revision
a would be postponed for practically
1- two years. Throughout the campaign
he reiterated that he desired an im
t- mediate revision of the tariff and that
n the Democratic leaders knew perfect.
5- ly well how to proceed about it.
d The governor was impressed by the
s- argument also that with an early an
e- nouncement as to an extra session
ig Democratic leaders in Congress could
te begin to take counsel at an early
je date, so that much of the preliminary
al detail could be worked out before
Congress convened on April 15.

The lulgarians aim at attacking the

the army is stretchcd across the penin

With every available piece of ar
tillry that could be gatnered together
it is marching straight toward the
work which, until the Turks suffered
the series of awful defeats, were con
. -rcd by military experts as impreg
nable.
The advance guard of this great
army of invasion have already reached
the village of Lazarikeui, near Lake
Derkos below the town of Tchetalaja,
facing the center of the line which
takes its name from the town and
Arnautekeui, to the south and near the
Sea of Maromara.
All these places have been occupied
and from Arnautekeui the Bulgarian
artillery is shelling Byuk Chekmedye,
where Turkish forts compose the ex
treme left of the Turkish line.
Reconnoitering parties have passed
around the flanks of the Turks' right
and are operating in the country be
I tween the Tchatalja lines and the capi
I tal, but the various divisions have
only commenced the attempt to make
a breach which will give them an
opening toward the city of their desire.
0 Those who have visited the Turkish
L. front differ considerably as to the
k ability of the defenders to hold the
