awakens the officer In charge. The
enemy In the distance opens fire, and
the elephants immediately form In
line in military precision. One ele
phant trains the Gatling gun on the
enemy and opens fire. Another is
mortally wounded, and drops “dead,”
as does also the officer. Still another
elephant, seeing that the officer Is
mortally wounded, limps out waving
a flag of truce, while two elephants
of the ambulance corps cover over the
officer with the colors, and carry him
off the field. One of the elephants
seizes the dead officer around the
neck with his trunk, while the other
elephant grasps the man in a simi
lar manner around the ankles. In
this way they carry th eofficer from
the battlefield. The scene never fail*
to elicit the most thunderous ap
plause.
These wonderful elephants will .be
seen with the Young Buffalo Wild
West and Col. Cummins’ Far East,
which will exhibit in Detroit on Mon
day and Tuesday, May 13 and 14. The
act is made very impressive on ac
count of its picturesque setting. Na
tive East Indians, Arabs, Bedouin*,
Cingalese and many other nationali
ties of the Orient participate in the
ensemble, lending color and atmos
phere to the surroundings that are
typical of the country in which the
scene is supposed to be enacted.
Another feature of the show Is

(Co|<> rlgbt, 11112, by >«*»> York ICvcalag
Fuat Cos.)
NEW YORK. May 3.—The stock
market encountered today the
ing which *ome people had predicted
for last Wednesday, some for a woek
or two ago, and which the more cau
tious and conservative part of the fi
nancial community probably consider
ed ONerdue. Brought about probably
jy the successive accummulation of
caures. it led to a break in prices dur
ng the particular weakness of the
afternoon, which ran to 41-2 points
in Reading and to two or more in
numerous other active stocks. Trad
,ug on the final break was extremely
:arge.
As to immediate influences, the
Jay s market was manifestly depress
ed by the failure of the anthracite
nin era to come to terms with the op
erators and end the coal strike forth
with. The further anuouncement con.
cerning the increase in wages demand
ed by the firemen on 40 eastern roads
was also an unsettling factor, follow
ing so soon after the differences with
the engineers. At the opening, such
declines occurred as 3-4 prints in
Reading, 5-8 in Union Pacific, 3-8 in
New York Central. Before the end of
the first hour Reading was se,ling 1 1-2
points below yesterday, Union Pacific
1 1-4, and the whole market became
very weak. On this movement there
was heavy selling, and the standard
*huretf no aggressive effective
support.
In the last hour the lowest prices
of the day were made witL net losses
ranging from 2 to 4 points In the
active issues.
The whole market became very
weak on this movement.
MIX-UP IN LAW GIVES
PROSECUTOR TROUBLE
The election law of 1909 and the
amended law of 1911 are responsible
for a situation which Prosecutor
Shepherd has been called upon to
wrestle with and which has caused
Assistant Prosecutor Voorheis, to
whom the question was referred,
many sleepless nights.
The act of 1909 provided that coun
ty drain coirtmitsloners were to be
elected every two years for a term of
four years. As each county Is entitled
to only one drain commissioner,
it was quickly discovered that this
law would not work, as there would
soon be a surplus of drain commis
sioners. The law of 1911, was
designed ms an amendment only, add
ed to the muddle, by providing that
drain commissioners be elected In
the regular November elections, the
term to commence Jan. 1, 1913. Since
the drain commissioners now in of-
Sce were elected under the law of
1910 for four years, they still have
two years to serve, and there is no
law by which they can be removed.
When the new men, elected next
fall, take office on Jan. 1, to whom
Bhall the salary he paid, and which
man has the authority to act, the one
elected legally for a four-year term,
which has still two years to run, or
the one elected legally under the new
act? This is the puzzling question.
SENATOR ASHURST
FLAYS GROSSCUP
WASHINGTON, May 3.—Senator
Ashurst, of Arizona, this afternoon In
the senate assailed former Federal
Judge Grosscup, of Chicago, in con
nection with an attack on the work
men's compensation bill.
“1 inveigh against thoee judges
who go on long fishing trips with
presidents and attorneys of rail
roads.” Ashurst declared. “I mean
such Judges as Ocossonp.’'
So determined was the objection of
Democrats to the workmen’s compen
sation measure that it bore the ap
pearance of a filibuster and Repub
licans prepared to fight out the mut
ter at a night session, if necessary.

HHE device called by the Intereating title “Try-New-Life" la merely
an electrical massage machine In no way different from those j
which have been on the market and In more or lee* general uae
for some time. The new development, however, la the emph&als
which la placed on the curative properties of massage with thla machine.
While some of the claims made for It are rather beyond the accepted
lines, It is probably true that In many cases a measure of relief can be
obtained by the use of the machine and in some, It la possible that a cure
may be effected. The curative properties of the treatments are lu my
opinion strictly limited, however, and its chief value la In the temporary
relief which it may afford.
It la possible that some barm might result from the unscientific use
of the device, certainly in the hands of unskilled operator* It would be
quite impossible to obtain the results that might be obtained from a
scientific use, but one could probably learn to handle it sufficiently well to
Ret the ordinary exhillrating results which are about all that can be ex*
pected.
The advertising that haa apreared is rather extravagant, and it la
quite evident that there is not much medical knowledge In the sale* de
partment. It la unfortunate that the aales department does not have
sufficient confidence In the device to sell it simply upon its sa a
massage machine without Introducing the methods of the quacks td help
the sale along. The quackery seems to be more In evidence In the adver
tising than in the methods of handling the customer.
“Try-New-Life” creates a prejudice against It by the aarae and the
methods of advertising. It does not come under the category of “fool
things,” however, because there is a certain amount of demonstrable merit
to it when properly handled.

Attorney Cook Convinces Piose

Against Mrs. Lisienski
Attorney Frank Cook, representing
Mrs. Anna Lisienski. in police court,
where she was charged with prac
ticing medicine without a license,
secured the dismissal of his client by
arguing out the case with Assistant
Prosecuting Attorney Kosclnski, Fri
day.
Mrs. Lisienski had been bound
over to the recorder’s court by Jus
tice Jeffries, when Attorney Cook
asked to have the case reopened, In
sisting that he could convince the
prosecutor that there really was no
case.
“If you can do that, get Mr. Koscin
ski to come to me and ask to have
the case dismissed, and I’ll dismiss
it,” said the Judge.
Attorney Cook left, and soon re
turned with Koscinskj, who informed
the Judge that he had been convinc
ed by Mr. Cook, and asked to have
the case dismissed
The ca3e against John A. Biakeney,
charged with practicing pharmacy
without a certificate, was also dis
missed. on account of a mlxup in
dates in the information.
Biakeney Is now awaiting trial In

violating the medical laws.

American refugees on the coast, if
any brought the matter to his atten

When told that some Mexican

would not meet them. When he was

Americans were shot during a battle

WOULD ALLOW ONLY ONE
TERM TO PRESIDENTS
Senators Works and O’Gorman
Favor Making It Six Years
—Bills Introduced
WASHINGTON, May 3.—Early
consideration of resolutions in the
senate and house declaring for six
year terms for presidents and pro
hibiting re-election, was predicted to
day by Senator Works, author of the
senate measure.
”1 have long favored making the
president ineligible for reelectlon,”
said Senator Cummins today.
“I believe there will be no opposi
tion to the resolution, except from
some ardent Roosevelt supporters,'*
Senator O’Gorman, of New York pre
dicted.
Senator Johnson, of Maine, and
Senator Clapp, of Minnesota, not on
ly favored the resolutions, but advo
cated limiting a president’s term to
four years Instead of six. Senator
Bourne, Oregon, progressive, and
Senator Bristow, of Kansas, are
against the resolutions. They insist
presidents should be given two
terms. Senator Penrose, of Pennsyl
vania, said one term should be
enough for any president, but that
•hi years service might be too long.
Rep. Clayton, chairman of the
house Judiciary committee, Is author
of .the aix-year, no re-election resolu
tion In the house. He predicts Its
bT the house next week, the
concurrence of the senate, and rati
fication by three-fourths of the
states.
EMACIATED VAG PLEADS
FOR LIBERTY; GETS IT
One of the most pathetic figures
that ever faced a police Justice on a
charge of vagrancy was Arthur Gill,
no home, who was found sleeping in
an alley under a wagon by Patrolman
Van Antwerp.
He was sick, emaciated, hungry and
scantily clad in filthy, tattered cloth
ing. but when Justice Jeffries sen
tenced him to 10 days in ths work
house, where he might be well fed
and cared for, the man pleaded to be
set free.
“I only wanted to send you up as
an act of kindness to yourself,” said
the Judge, who could not conceal his
pity for the man, “but If you can be
happy in your condition, with nothing
but your freedom I wouldn’t take that
away from you.”
Gill was allowed to go.
