IN THE WATER n HOURS CAPTAIN OF THE STEAMSHIP CARPATHIA RETURNS FROM MEDITERRANEAN WITH QUEER SEA TALE. Charles Brown in charge of the lo cal T. M. C. A. movement addressed two large and appreciative audiences at the Reid Memorial Church and Christian Church ' yesterday morning and evening respectively. The theme of his talks was the exnlanation of the Y. M. C. A., and the demonstra tion of the church's Dart in organiz ing such an institution. He stated that the Association is not foreign to the work of the church but closely attached. The work and influence of the one is that of the other. Where the church is generally looked upon by young persons as beins a place of divinity for older persons, the As- sociation affords them an institution for themselves without drawing them away from the other. At both ser vices yesterday the young men at tended in larger numbers than was expected and from all indications the Y. M. C. A. spirit has invaded the city. At last night's meeting the young men turned out In equally good forces. Many of the young per sons are talking the movement to their friends, who are not able to at tend the meetings and in this man ner the good work is being spread. Mr. Brown stated last night that it is desired that $100,000 be collected to install the institution. It Is thought that within a month work on the col lection of subscriptions will be begun. Mr. Brown stated that the work would not be stopped in any event as that would mean another twenty- five years delay. Confidence is en tertained by those who attended the meeting yesterday that the movement will be successful. . ONE PHASE OF COUNTRY'S DEVELOPMENT.

THE WORK OF ROOSEVELT THOROUGHLY SANCTIONED 17 A CASE OF. "BOOTLEGGING" Thomas Mulligan Was Arrested with Two Half Pints of Whiskey on His Person. The Palladium one dollar "tip prize" for the past week, goes to a well known business man, who "tipped off" to a Palladium reporter that Herbert Eshenfelder had forged two checks, one at the First Na tional and the other at the Seccnd National bank. The name of the business man is withheld at his request. The story came to the Pal ladium from another source five hours after the winner of the prize had dropped his "tip." The second man would have won the prize had he been in earlier. ' Another good story came to the Palladium last week through a person trying for the prize. Roy Caile "tipped off" the fact, that Mrs. 'Dempsey had been burned to death. The story, however, appeared in the evening papers and that fact would have kept Caile from winning the prize no matter how poor the other stories might have been. The story which wins must be exclusive to the Palladium. Those trying for the prize need not fear but that they will receive impartial treatment. If there is ever any indecision about the value of two stories on the part of the judge, two prizes will be awarded for that week. The contest continues this week and indefinitely. SURPRISED MRS.

The next day the Carpathia stopped at Gibralter and sailed for Nanles. barracks, their officers started to re strain them but finally they broke the bonds of discipline and -started in masses for the Jewish Quarters, the outbreak being attributed to Jewish terrorists. The failure of the soldiers to. act tip to this time had given the Jews, who are accustomed to should ering the blame for any trouble, a sense of false security and the mad dened troops swent into the quarter almost without warning. They be gan shooting and killing right and left, battering down doors and wreck ing houses. Their supposed personal grievance against ,the Jews made the work of the soldiers all the more terrible and as they proceeded their passion for revenge seemed to increase rath er than to diminish. A number of children were killed in cold blood, while women holding babies in their arms struck down ruthlessly. The soldiers did not return to the barracks' until the quarter was de molished and not a living Jew was to he found.

Watson ad dressed a great gathering of Repub licans here Saturday at the county convention of the party. Senator Hemenway spoke very briefly as he was compelled to leave on an early train.

Senator Hemenway expressed the belief that two thirds of the peo ple, regardless of party affilarances, heartily indorse the legislation of the last Congress. Congressman James E. Watson delivered an address of more than an hour's length, expressing the convic tion that the American people would not trust the Democratic party to re vise the tariff, as they had very clear recollection of the direful results of the Cleveland administration.
