Local clubs nre being organ- Ized In man of the tow ns and villages. The extent to which this phase of the work Is being pushed may be estimated by the fact that Jefferson county alone, with a score or so of townships, ha. some eighteen of these local clubs. The chief function of these societies seem to he the agitation of the question hv means of "Vote for Women" parade., occasional public meetings and the dli- trlhutlon of literature.

A Department of Regulation nnd Con trol of Public Utilities, to he composed of two Public Service Commission, of five members each to serve for terms of Ave year., to be appointed by the Gov ernor with the consent of the Senate, but who cannot be removed by the Gov ernor without the consent of the Senate. This section of the Constitution provides that the Legislature cannot pass n bill affecting rntca of public service corpora tlona unless It Is based upon a leport after Investigation by a public service commission. It also provides that there .hall be a court review or decision and orders of the public service commissions "in such manner and to such extent us the Legislature may provide." There Is to be a Department of Civil Service controlled by a department of three to serve for tcim. uf six years each. Thus under fourteen main departments are to be grouped the present lfitt de partment., boards and commissions which administer the affairs of the State government to-day. While It has not been definitely set tled, the plan Is, If the people adopt this Constitution at the November election, that the Legislature lu January will pna. the law to make the changes to take effect on January 1, 1917, when the term, of the present elective Stale offi cial, expire and the Constitution will di rect the Legislature to pas. these reor ganization laws.

Jiftlf Atmmc - 34th ana 35tlr fctmta CAPER TON LETS FRENCH MARINES LAND IN HA YTI Admiral First Gets Sanction From Washington Indi cations That United States Will Take Over Control of Negro Republic. Washington, Aug, 1. After asking for and receiving permission of the L'nlted States Government, tho com mander of Hie French cruiser Descartes has been allowed lo land a detachment of marines as n guard for the French lega tion In Port-au-Prlnc. Haytl. This development, announced here to day. Is regarded as emphasizing the pe culiar obligations of the l'nlted Stales to France In the present situation in nayii. It Is viewed here as Indicating not snly thai It consider Itself In sole charge of 'the situation at the Haytlun capital, where Hear Admiral Caperton Is In military- occupation of the city, but also an Implication that France holds the United States solely responsible for the present situation there. The commander of the Descartes illei not merely Inform Admiral Caperton of an Intention to place an armed guard at the French Legation but specltlcally asktd If he might be permitted to do so Admiral Caperton did not give this per mission himself until he hod asked In structions from Washington, which I In Itself regarded as a fact of some sigmn cance'ln relation to the International situation In Haytl. When he reported the French com mander's request to Secietary Daniels the latter conferred with Secretary Lans ing, The conclusion was reached that It was titling that the French Legation which was violated last week by the Ha llan mob should be guarded bv French marines. Accordingly Instruc tions were sent to Admiral Caperton to permit the landing of a small French de tachment, and he was also ordered to lend hla cordial cooperation to the com mander of the Descartes In placing a guard at the legation of his Goveinment.

It Is thought possible that Mr Fullei may ogaln be sent to Haytl tn aid ln working out the political side of the .situation. One phase nf the situation wh eh Is giving nfllclalH some concern Is the attitude of certain members of the Sen ate In the event that a decision Is leached to try to do something nf n peim.inent character fur H.iti. It has not been furent-en at the State Depart ment what difficulty President Hoose. veil had In obtaining Hie sanction of the Senate to the flnanclnl arrangement made In Santo Domingo which Is ad mitted to be the only thing which has kept that republic from reaching as low a level flnano ally and politically a. Haytl. situated on the same Island. Neither have officials forgotten that fttaiitBmt Antral Nrm f ark opposition In the Senate has prevented the ratification of the pending conven tion with Nicaragua, a measure by which It is hoped to strengthen the finan cial condition of that republic. There Is, therefore, a fear that If a treaty I. made with Haytl confirmation of It In the Senate will be difficult. On the other hand, It Is believed by some officials that the situation In Mex ico and the event nf the war In Hurope may have Impressed opposition Senators wilh the advisability of the United Stale bolstering Up the weak places In the vicinity of the Panama Canal. Most of the opposition to such measures In the Caribbean ns the present Administration vvlshc to take comes from the Demo cratic side In the Senate.
