strike threatened for November 1st
will be up to President Wilson, Sec

WASHINGTON, Oct. 24 (United
preSS Reservations to the Peace

tions committee were reported to the
Senate this afternoon by Chairman
Lodge. The preamble requires that
they be assented to by three of the
leading Allied Powers before the Am.

Question as to Whether War Time
Measure Has Ever Been a Saving
of Daylight.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 24 (United
Press) A revised resolution of rati
fioation of the Peace Treaty will be
reported to the Senate today, provid
c(! Senator Lodge can complete the
('rafting of a new resolution it was
stated.
Action by the Senate will be de
ferred, however, until the Bending
amendments are disposed of. -It ap
peared doubtful whether the Johnson
and Moses Amendments would be vot
ed on today.
Sunday morning at 2 o'clock time in
. the United States will be retarded one
- hour, and all clocks and watches
should be set back just sixty min
utes. This will mark the expiration
of the war-time daylight saving law,
which has come in for a great deal
of criticism.
With the changing of clocks and
watches there will also come a change
in the hour for doing business nearly
everywhere. In Palatka stores will
open at 8 o'clock instead of 9 and
church services will be held as during
the period previous to the adoption
of the daylight saving law. But all
trains will continue to operate on the
new time, and the post office will ob
serve it without change.
This readjustment may cause some
confusion at first but it will only be
a short time bexore everyooay au
justs themselves to it. The schools
will probably return to the old open
ing hour of 8:30, no official announce
ment yet having been maae.

NEW YORK, Oct. 24 (United
Press) Although two days behind
Lieutenant Belvin W. Maynard in fin
ishing his second transcontinental
Right at Mieola, Captain J. 0. Don
aldson may be the winner of the ar
my's 6,400 miie airplane reliability
contest on the technical point of ac
tual flying time.
A first computation by members of
the Contest Board of the American
f lying Club showed that Donaldson
had flown the distance in. 49 hours, 56
minutes, and 11 seconds or about 11
minutes better than Maynard's time.
All the figures are now being veri
fied and members of the Contest
Board will go to Washington this
week to compare their official rec
ords with the books sent into Air Ser
vice Headquarters by the twenty c.on-
tiol stop commanders who checked
each flier in and out of the stations.
Revision of Maynard's time for the
flight from the Atlantic to the Pacific
showed that he had covered 2,701
miles in 25 hours, 11 minutes and
1-2 seconds, and his time for the
return was given as about 25 hours
flat. One unofficial computation by
the American Flying Club placed it at
24 hours, 45 minutes, and 8 seconds,
and if this time were accepted as of
ficial, he would be only six seconds
behind the flying time of Donaldson.
'he officials believe, however that
the re-check will favor Donaldson by
oi t 'I miml'ei
The performances of these two men,
who are far ahead of their sixty com
petitors on all points of competition,
epresent superiority in two-methods
of flying that differ radically. May
nard flies entirely by compass and
pays little attention to any but the
most important landmarks. Donald
sen flies near the ground, and finds
is path entirely by reference to his
map and the landmarks, using the
compass hardly at all. Maynard pre
fers the big De Haviland plane.
Donaldson likes the tiny single-seat
er SE-5, a scout plane, although it is
much more than susceptible to ad
verse atmosphere conditions than the
De Haviland, which is about three
times as large.
Captain Donaldson also set a rec
ord for a single day's flight with a
little scout plane by flying 823 miles
from Rock Island to Binghamton, N.
Y. Captain Donaldson said that his
motor functioned perfectly throughout
the 3,400 mile flight, and added that
he would have been able to have flown
more than 823 miles on last Saturday
if the weather had not been adverse
in Ohio and Western New York.

today's forecast. Fair and continued
warm weather is promised.
According to figures available this

was abnormal. No relief is expected
until there is a heavy rainfall.
LONDON, Oct. 24 (Unitel Press)
Lloyd George government faces a
serious situation as a result of last
night's defeat in the House of Com
mons, according to opinion generally
expressed by the press today. Many
officials and political experts declared
they believe the resignation of the
piemier certain. Unionists and labor
ites united in defeating the govern
ment's amendment to the alien bill.
The alien bill, ' the earlier stages
of which were disposed of during the
summer session, was m. the report
stage. The committee had previously
inserted an amendment withholding
pilotage certificates from all aliens,
and today the government sought by
amendment to modify this restriction
in favor mainly of a number cf
French pilots, for whom provision had
been made in the existing pilotage
act This amendment, however, was
defeated, although in charge of gov
ernment whips.
The governments position was dis
edsseu at a cabinet meeting in Down
ing street today.

CAPTURE BOLSHEVIK MONEY
NEW YORK, Oct. 24 The anti-
Bolshevist forces under Admiral Kol
chak have forwarded to Omsk more
than 600,000,000 rubles (about $300,

Bolsheviki, according to a statement

SENATOR MARTIN IMPROVES.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va Oct 24
(United Press) 61ight improve

United States Senator Martin, who
lies critically ill here, according to a
report early today. He is suffering
from leaking heart
Of the sixteen census enumerators
reeded to take the next census in
Putnam county only three applications
have been made to the district super
visor, and it begins to look as if it
will be impossible to secure enumer
ators for many of the counties in
Florida.
The difficutl y in securing enumer
ators lies in the small pay, the re
quirements as to ability of the enu
merator and the necessity for use of
an automobile at his own expense.
Some time ago the Palatka Busi
ness Men's Association took the mat
ter of furnishing enumerators up. A
man was sent to Jacksonville to con
fer with Supervisor Emery. There
he learned that it would be necessary
to stand an examination in November,
wait until January 1 to go to work
and then receive pay of 20 cents per
family and 30 cents for each farm
enumerated. This sounds easy, but
when the blanks the enumerator is
required to fill out are examined it
is found that securing enough to net
the enumerator four dollars per day
would be a herculean job.
In addition to these requirements
enumerators in the country must pro
vide their own cars. The job is not
an alluring one and it is extremely
doubtful if the government will be
able to secure enough men, or wo
men, to do the work.
