CASTOR I A For Infants and Ouldrsa. Tho If in il Yft'l Hl?YA Alwsws Rmirrn Bears the Bigs store cf 7 SHELDON IN ENGLAND. Topka JPreachcr Still Delivering Lec tures Compared to Mark Twain. While the Rev. Charles M. Sheldon is handing out a lot of suggestions to the residents of the British Isles on how to suppress the liquor business, according to the Kansas plan, he . is also said to be collecting a choice as sortment of English ideas which he will proceed to engraft upon this community when ho returns. Here is an extract from th Alliance News and Temperance Reformer, a British paper, reporting Mr, Sheldon's speech at Birstall, Eng.: "Dr. Sheldon said that was the 73 rd meeting he had addressed during his campaign. The good feeling between England and the United States was never so strong and true as now, the common people in both countries be lieving in one another more than ever they did. The two countries had a great deal to learn from each other. The English people had a great many good things which the people in the United States had not, and when he returned home he would ask his peo ple to adopt them. On the other hand, the Americans had some beau tiful things which were not seen in England. Dr. Sheldon then told in a graphic manner of the advantages of prohibition in America, where over thirty-three million people were living in towns, cities, and villages under lo cal option laws, and made special reference to his own state of Kansas. When he spoke at Manchester a short while ago he said there were eight or nine towns in Kansas where drink could still be bought, but now he could truthfully say that there were only two towns of any importance in Kansas where the law was being dis-' obeyed, nearly all the towns having ' returned 'dry' mayors at the spring election. (Applause.) If all in Eng land who were on the side of temper ance would unite in a great effort the liquor business would soon have to go. No parliament could withstand the j pressure of a united church. Out of 175 ministers of his own denomina tion in Kansas, he did not know one that touched liquor. "In conclusion. Dr. Sheldon said he wished the people of Great Britain would realize what tremendous possi bilities faced them. He did not think they ought to be discouraged at what parliament had not done. Vested in terests seemed tremendous, but tem perance workers must not be afraid of them. He hoped that England would soon become what it ought to be. (Applause)." It will also be a relief to the awful suspense to know that the resolutions presented to this Birstall meeting were passed. They always rig up a sort of dummy debate on some resolutions at these British temperance meetings. Some distinguished "gent" opens the ball by presenting a bunch of resolu tions, endorsing some phase of the temperance proposition. Of course everybody is in favor of the' resolu tions, and there Is no use discussing them, but the Britisher considers it proper to have some resolutions as an excuse for speechmaking. In this re spect a British temperance meeting is very like an encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic. The resolu tion at the Birstall meeting was one thanking the prime minister for prom ising to bring some measure before the house of commons concerning the licensing of saloons. This one resolu tion 'Wve' an "Opening for- -three speeches: one by the man who offered it. one by the man who seconded it. and one by Dr. Sheldon in support of it. Mark Twain and Sheldon. The English people think that they are entertaining two of America's most distinguished citizens this sum mer and they are In the persons of Mark Twain and Charles M. Sheldon. In speaking of the fact that both Twain and Sheldon are visiting Eng land, this temperance paper, the Al liance News says: "The meeting in the Town Hall. Bir mingham, on Tuesday evening, was a great, crowded and influential func tion. Many were unable to get in, and great was the disappointment, for not only was Dr. Sheldon present, but that most powerful speaker and teacher, Dr. Rendel Harris, president of the National Free Church Council, occu pied the chair. He delivered a splen did speech, having first welcomed Dr. Sheldon, and remarked that his fame was in all the churches; that in Mark Twain and Dr. Sheldon they had. vis iting their shores from across the At lantic two great humanists, for the true humorist was the true humanist. After Dr. Sheldon had delivered his story of what prohibition had accom plished in Kansas, which was skilfully and wittily told, and received with marked attention and appreciation, other speeches were delivered by Rev. S. W. Hughes, Mr. Joseph Hood, and Mr. William Pearson." NOT BREWERY PROPERTY. A Pittsburg Man Says Seized Saloon Fixtures Were His, Pittsburg. Kan., July 17. J. T.

Philadelphia, Pa., July 17. A massed band parade with nil the bands piaylng the same music at the same time, one of the three big features of Elks' week took place today on Broad street. - Ev ery musical organization participating in the reunion, numbering more than 40 bands, with 1.500 members was in line. The Jfrusicians formed at Broad street and Falrmount avenue and were ar ranged according to instruments. The music played was "The Twenty-first Reunion." which had "The Girl I Left Behind Me." "Home, Sweet Home," and "Auld Lang Syne" as its general theme with beautiful elaborations. The route was south on Broad street through the court of honor to South street, where the massed bands were dismissed. The fifty reviewing stands along the two mile route were crowded with peo ple and the streets were Jammed with a crowd such as Broad street has seldom seen. The day was exceedingly sultry, but the perspiring throng cheered the aggre gation of musicians as they passed down the street. The contrast in costumes was ludicrous. All through the parade could be seen the dazzling costumes of some crack regimental musical organiz ation by the side of the more modest costume of a village band. After the parade most of the visiting Elks and their ladles went to the var ious parks in and about the city where special entertainments had been pro vided. The drill contest will be held to night.

The attempt in the fall of 1906 to organize a huge soap combine in the United' Kingdom which quickly came to an end under the pres sure of adverse public opinion, had a sensational sequel in the assize court today when William Hesketh Lever, Liberal member of parliament for the Wyrrall division of . Cheshire, secured Judgment for -damage ,of $250,000 .and costs against the Harmsworth newspa pers, the Daily Mail and the Evening News for libels published ,by them during the course of the controversy that followed the attempt to bring about the combination. . -r After- a hearing that lasted for two days, the defendants today suddenly withdrew their plea of justification and agreed to pay the amount demanded.

A vote on the principle of the American proposition regarding the inviolability of private property at sea was taken today by the committee of the conference dealing with the Geneva convention. Twenty one delegates voted favorably, 11 were against the measure and there was one absentee. Great Britain, France, Russia, Japan, Spain and Portugal were in opposition, while the triple alliance, although Germany made a reservation, was among the majority. - ' Belgium presented a compromise proposal but Joseph H. Choate of the American delegation refused to ac cept it, saying that inasmuch as a ma jority admitted the principle of lm munltyv he could not consent to the limitation of this dea, especially as Great Britain and 1 Germany had de clared they would not accept it in any form. This made unanimity impos sible. Prof. De Martens, of Russia, who presided at the meeting, called atten tion to the fact that although the American proposition was supported by a majority of the votes passed, the populations of the countries voting against the principle were numerically largely in excess of. those favoring it. Marey von Kapos Mere, of Austria, and Count Tornelll, of Italy, followd the example of Baron Marschal von Biebersteln, of Germany, in their refernce to the British proposition re garding the limitation of armaments which Is to be presented by Sir Ed ward Fryo at the next plenary sittings of the conference. This places Slgnor Tittohi, the Italian minister of foreign affairs, in a somewhat embarrassing position; he is personally in favor of th-3 British proposal, but he can not Ignore the attitude of his allies In the triple alHSnce. The United States and Spain favor the English views on this matter. M. Nelidoff, however, does not think that Russia can support the Idea of limiting armaments at present in view of the conditon today of her army and navy as a result of the Russo-Japanese war. M. Bourgerois, of France, personally favors limitation but the French government regards this question as academic and lm jracticable. To Investigate Xew York Prisons. New York, July 17.

American Syndicate's Attorney Has Gone to Europe to Complete Details New York, July 17. Some of the details of the 100 million dollar thea trical syndicate that will control the leading theaters and theatrical inter ests in the United States and Europe have been learned here. Klaw & Er langer, the directing heads of the American theatrical syndicate, are leading the movement nrt th .o-o sent Levy Mayer of Chicago,, their tuuusei, io Europe to arrange the details for the syndicate' and to make final terms witn the individual managers and owners on the other side. The big theatrical syndicate has been practically assured ever since the prominent managers in London, Para and Berlin and the other cities in Europe agreed many months ago to pool their issues with the managers in this country. Six of the American managers constitute the present thea ter syndicate. They are Messrs. A. Hayman, A. R. Erlanger,' Mark Klaw, Charles Frohman, Samuel F. Nixon and J. Fred Zimmerman. Mr. Charles Frohman controls several theaters in London. Messrs. Klaw and Erlanger have been getting in closer touch each season with the managers in Europe and the success of the syndicate here has made the Important managers in London and Paris desire to be affiliat ed with the men who control the chief theatrical affairs of the United States, Just who will make up the complete list of European managers who will become factors in the new internation al syndicate has not been announced, out a man well posted on the work ings of the plans said the managers in London would likely include Messrs. George Edward.es, George Alexander, Frank Curzon, Seymour Hicks, Chas. Wyndham, Cyril Maude, the Messrs. Gatti and perhaps Messrs. Beerbohm Tree arid". Arthur .'Collins. Both vaudeville and "legitimate" houses come within the scope of the plans mapped out by the syndicate for its extended control. Vaudeville, how ever, as it has been In the case with Klaw & Erlanger in the past, will be the feature particularly cared for. Marc Klaw, who has been in Europe for several months, has been devoting a great part of his time to getting the English and French managers Inter ested Infthe international syndicate. The recent decision of the New York courts that theaters and amusements are not "trade and commerce, and that their combination is not illegal, has, - it is said, been a great factor in bringing about' this syndicate.
