EF,rORT3 TO KEEP ADRIANOPLE
PREVENTS END OF WAR. Ai
Roumania Menaces Bulgaria With In
vasion Unless Frontier la
Rectified.
London, Lnp The pendulum of
peace In the lialkans swings between
the fi.ll of Adrianople and action by
the powers of Kurope. Advice, sug
gestions, good offices, pressuro and
friendly oilers all that diplomatic
termiuulcgy has been able ta Invent
have been attemijted by tho powers
to bring the conflicting parties to
terms over Adrianople, but the re
luctance of Turkey to cede the "holy
city" Is only surpassed by the deter
mination of tho allies to win their
point to have it included in the terri
tory of r.ulfe.niii.
Sevi ral nvcnlied intermediate
courses for solving tho problem, by
neither entirely Bepfirattng Adriano
ple from Turkey nor entirely giving
it to Hulgaria. have been refused by
both sides. As an Indication of the
stand the allies have taken, one of the
Ilulgarian delegates said: "Adrian
ople is the Alsace-Lorraine of our
war."
Turkey's hopes that she may be
able to save Adrianople undoubtedly
bare been revived by the threatening
attitude of lloumanln. In this Rou
mania is believed to be bucked by
Austria, as otherwise she would not
urge her claim bo energetically
against Bulgaria In contrast with her
pacific position of a fortnight ago.
The powers are awaiting tho result
of representations to be made to the
Constantinople government by their
ambassadors in the Ottoman capital.
Their note probably will bo delivered
Monday to the I'orte.

SIMPLE INAUGURAL
MUCH USELESS EXPENSE SAVED
BY PLANS OF LEGISLATIVE
COMMITTEES.
HOUSE HALL TOO SMALL
Necessary to Issue Admission Tick
et to Ceremonies Hadley Urges
Prison Reforms In Hi Spe
cial Message.
Jefferson Cily. The general assem
bly convened Monday and prepared
for the Inauguration of state officers.
The Joint committees from the
house and senate having charge of tho
arrangements for the inauguration
prepared a program distlngu'shed by
Its simplicity. The plan to make the
ceremonies as simple ns possiblo in
keeping with the dignity of the ooc
8lon, met, with the approval of Gov-ernor-eloct
Major. It also avoided
much useless expense.
When the committees began consid
ering plans they found one of tho
chief obstacles to contend with was
the small halls of the house and sen
ate chambers, where the inauguration
occurred.
Senator Michael Casey found, by
close figuring, that about 65C persona
could bo packed Into the house, which
Is tho larger of tho two legislative
halls. When all the state officers,
Judges of the supreme court, senators,
representatives nnd officers of both
branches asoembled In the hall, little
room was left for spectators.
It therefore was necessary to pro.
vide admission tickets, nnd those un
able to obtain these cards were un
able to witness the ceremonies.
Gov. Hadley sent to the Bonata hla
appointments made in recess, but it Is
said all will be t elected.
Hadley Urges Prison Reforms. j
Gov. Hadley sent u message to tho
legislature transmitting a Pst of tho i
pardons nnd paroles granted during
his term. j
Tho governor In his message said
that, considering tho prison populn- .
tion, he had released fewer convicts
than any of his predecessors. 1
He urged the establishment of a
state board of paroles and pardons to
Investigate conditions in the state
prison nnd to recommend releases of
convicts. i
lie also urged the establishment of
a state tuberculosis hospital for con
victs nnd tho purchase of additional
grounds for a prison farm. Ho recom
mended that prisoners make nil the
clothing needed by Inmates of state
institutions.
$1,000 a Day for Clerks.
The pay for the clerks In the forty
seventh assembly alone will run more
than $1,000 a duy. The cost of the
ICS clerks authorized by the house
will be $548. GO a day, a total of $3S,
395 for the 70 days of the session. It
has been the practice of the legisla
ture to add clerks by resolution as
the session progresses. If this Is done,
the Increase per day will amount to
$3.50 for each clerk, or $2 for each
member of the doorkeeper's force. I
Four Lobbyists for Trainmen.
Four members of the Brotherhood
of Railway Trainmen filed as legisla
tive lobbyists with the secretary of
state. They are to work for the pas
sage of laws beneilclnl to railway em
ployes. The lobbyists are H. Ffleffer,
St. lyouls; V. J. Thelen, Sedalin; J.
A. Phillips, St. Louis; C. O. Drafting
ham, Eldon.
Contest I Threatened. I
Tliero is a bare possibility the Dem
ocratic majority will be Increased by
one as a result of a contest threatened
from Ste. Genevieve, where William
R. Wilder, a eon of Heer Inspector W.
W. Wilder, was elected over P. H.
Coffmann.
Coffmann, a Democrat, arrived with
the Intention of entering a contest.
"The law requires that members
shall be 24 years of age," he declared,
"and Wilder will not be of age until
February 23."
None of the Democrats take the
contest seriously, because it la based
on such trivial grounds.
It requires only 72 votes to rass a
bill, nnd 95 to pass an emergency
rlause. With their large majority the
Democrats will be able to pass any
thing they want, and there would be
no excuse for turning down Wilder
merely because of his ago.
Constitutional Convention Sought.
Jefferson City, Mo. A resolution
for a constitutional convention and for
the celebration of the completion of
the Keokuk power dam will bo sub
mitted to the legislature. Sidney J.
Roy, secretary of the Hannibal Com
mercial Club, arrived in Jefferson City
to urge the latter. As secretary of
the Missouri League of Municipalities,
be also will ask for the constitutional
convention.
Anger a Sign of Weakness.
Anger la always a sign of weak
ness. It is our irritation at our own
impotence. It Is the fire of the spirit
blazing up against the Inevitable.
When we know we are superior, when
know we are conscious of greater
power than our adversary's, we are al
ways calm.
Queer Conduct.
"Our cook has been guilty of

"What is it?"
"She baa been early of lata."
PREPARING FOR
THE WORK OF 19I3
CITY BUILDING, RAILWAY BUILD
ING AND FARM OPERATIONS
IN WESTERN CANADA,
BIGGEST EVER.
Tho machinery, the money and the
men for carrying on the big worku In
Western Cannda in 1913 nre already
provided for. Tho splendid harvest
which was successfully garnered, and
by thla time mostly marketed, re
sponded to the big hopes that were
had for it early in the season, and In
spired capitalists and railroad's to
further Investment and building.
From lake ports to mountain base
there will be carried on the biggest
operations in city building and rail
way construction that has ever taken
place in that country. The Canadian
Paclflo railway has everything In
waiting to continue their great work
of double tracking tho system and by
the time the Panama Cnnnl Is open to
traffic thero will be a double line of
steel from Lake Superior to the Pa
cific coast. Tho cost will exceed
thirty million dollars. The Grand
Trunk Pacific plan of building a first
class trunk lino and then feeders at
rarlouH points will be carried forward
with all the force that great company
can put into the work. The Canadian
Northern la prepared to put Into mo
tion all the energy that young giant
of finance nnd railroad building can
put Into various enterprises of provid
ing and creating transportation facili
ties. Ruilding operations in the several
cities, that have already marked
themselves a place in the list of suc
cessful and growing cities, will be
carried on more largely than ever.
Schools, public buildings, parliament
buildings, colleges, business block?
apartments, private residences, banks,
street and other municipal improve
ments have their 'appropriation reailv.
and the record of 1913 will be some
thing wonderful. Other places which
nre towns today will make tho rapid
strides that nre expected nnd will be
come cities. Thero will be other Ed
montons, C.tlgarys. Reglmia nnd Sas
katoons, other places that may in
their activity help to convince the
outer world of Iho solidity nnd perma
r.oncy of the Canadian West. Th'
country is largo and wide and broad
nnd the ends of Its great width and
length nre but the limits of Its ngrf
cultural nren. Its people aro proirres
Hive, they aro strong, thero Is no
enervation there. The country teem
with thla life, this ambition, this
fondness to crento and to use tho
forces that await the settler. If they
corno from the South, and hundreds
of thousands of them have, they are
now the dominant men of the North,
and they have imbibed of the spirit
of tho North. Thnrefore It Is fair to
say that no portion of the continent
will show such wonderful results as.
Western Cannda, and the year 1913
will be but the beginning of a won
derful and great future. And in this
future the 200,000 Americans who
made it their home, and those who
preceded them, will be a considerable
portion of tho machinery that will be
uped In bringing about the results
predicted.
The development of 1913 will not
be confined to the prairie provinces
Railway building and city building in
Ilrltlsh Columbia will be supplement
ed by the farm, the ranch and tho
orchard building of that province
Vancouver will make great strides in
building, nnd Victoria, the staid old
lady of so many years, has already
shown signs of modern ways, and If
tho progress made in 1912 may be ac
cepted as anything like what It will
be In 1913, there will be wonderful
developments there. During last
year the permits went over the ten
million dollar mnrk and much more i.:
promised for the year now entered
