MEETING POINT Allied Troops Converging from Archangel and Siberia. The operations of the allied forces In Russia are demanding more of the attention of the War Department at this time than those against St. Quentin and Metz. As explained yesterday by staff offi cers, the plan of campaign in Russia shows convercence to a point some where near Samara, in the Province of Orenberg. According to the latest positions of troops on the official map. the allies are advancing from Archangel directly southward towards .Samara, and the Japanese, Ameri cans. British, French and Czecho slovaks are moving westward through Siberia for concentration at the same point. The result of this establishment of an army at Samara, as stated by officials will be this: I. There will be a rallying point for all the progressive elements of Russia to whom the President's message to the Pan-Soviets was ad dressed, that is to say. to the Russian people as against all self-seeking fac tions. ?. The power of propagandists for Germany will be broken in more than one-half of Russia. J. The presence of an army sta tioned not many miles southeast of Moscow will refjuire Germany to re gain large forces in and near the borders of Russia, which will become impossible if the Americans, French, and British keep up their advance from the Western front. It was expected that Gen. March would have announced something yes terday with respect to the landing of American troops at Archangel and their future operations. He was de tained, however, at the Capitol an?! did not hold his usual Wednesday conference with the press. l)e*olat.on la Moae*?w. The State Department. however. threw a strong light on the success of the military operations in Russia yesterday. It was announced that a courier had arrived at Samara from Moscow, who gave an account of the utter <ie.eol.ation of things there, the lack of government, and the fearful misrule of the Bolshevik authorities. The courier reported th?at the Ger mans were evacuating the "Ral tic province?." This is taken to indi cate that the Germans are antici pating the success of the allied anJ American forces descending from Archangel and the Japanese and -?ther troop-! moving alone the Trans *iberian railroad to meet in the Orcn oerg Province. War Department officials are not disturbed over the report that Ger many is utilizing or wUI endeavor to utilize Bulgers on the Western front. They point out that the use of Aus? tliana against the ad\ ance of the Americans and French in the St. Mihiel sector fil? not avail much and that the progress of the British and French in Macedonia will have the ? (feet of keepine all but .a very few Bulgarians strictly at home.

'* SUES W.R.& E.CO. FOR $10,000 John H Bladen has filed suit with the District Supreme Court to re cover $10.000 da ma go s from tho ' Washington Railway and Electric ? Co. Mr. Bladen alleges that a car of the company, on which he was a passenger, collidfd with another car I owned by the company on August ! 20. 1 G?1 S. at the intersection of Fifth and ? streets. He claims that his i leg was injured. Attorney S. D. Ousak is handling th? case for the ! plaintiff. avzfc As the Lion is Monarch of the Forest, so S. S. S. is King of Blood Purifiers and Master over all Blood diseases. Pure, rich blood and a free cir culation is the surest prevention against the diseases and disorders which are constantly attacking our physical systems. Healthy blood stimulates the excretory members and enables them to filter out of the system everything that is not necessary or beneficial to the growsh and development of the body. Thus we are apt to remain healthy unless there is a weakening of the vital fluid or an impure infection of the circulation Imperfect blood takes various forms in its outward manifestation. A weak, watery circulation denotes anaemia with its attendant evils of pale, waxy complexions, malarial conditions, or perhaps some more definitely marked disorder is shown. Frequently the blood becomes in fected with acrid humors, ana Eczema, Tetter, Acne, or some other skin affection makes its ap pearance, while ari excess of uric? acid in the circulation produces Rheumatism with its pains and aches. Old Sores and Ulcers are likewise dependent on bad blood, these places being kept open and in a state of irritation by the drain age of pollution which disordered I BLOOD JRIFIERS blood constantly discharges into them. Another common indication of weak, impure blood is the loss of appetite, tired, worn out feeling and a general run-down condition of the system. This is an ailment very prevalent in the Spring and most persons so afflicted realize the ne cessity of overcoming the trouble by the use of a tonic. We recommend to all in need of a blood purifier or tonic, the use of S. S. S., a medicine which has proven itself the greatest of all blood purifiers. It goes down into the circulation and removes all im purities, humors and poisons and makes the blood pure and health snstaining. It purifies and strength ens weak deteriorated blood, sup plies it with the healthful properties it needs and lays the foundation for good health. As a tonic S. S. S. has no equal and those who are beginning to feel the need of such a medicine to fortify themselves against the unpleasant condi tions which come with Spring and early Summer, should com mence its use at once. S. S. S., the King of Blood Purifiers, is a genuine blood cleanser, made en tirely from roots, herbs and barks; it does not contain a particle' of mineral in any form. You could ;not do better than begin the use of S. S. S. if from any cause your blood is weak or impure, and you will find it the most satisfactory tonic you ever used. Write for book on the blood and any med ical advice. No charge for either.

A straight 5-cent fare on the street ? ail ways of the District Is probable within the next month. The Wash ington Railway and Electric Com pany system has already filed a for mal petition for increased tariff and ( its petition has the support of the ? War Labor Hoard. The Capital Trac-j tion Company, which controls the ; re?-t. of the lines of Washington, is j also understood to be preparing a petition which it will submit to the j Public rtllitfes Commission early! rext week. It li likely that both of the peti tion? will be reviewed at public hear-| ings. Although the commission met, ves terday, the date for fne hearing waa not set owing to the intimation that the best plan would be to con sider the question on all of the Unes at the same time. Three Pointa at Iaaae. In considering the question three points will be brought out at the hearing?. ** ?? ?'xpi'cted. The first is. is the increa.He ln revenue necessary? In pthcr words, the. financial condi tions will be considered with a view! to determining whether or not the funds must be replenished at the present time. The second question Is. could not the necessary effect be secured Just as well by economizing in the operat ing expenses and by increased effi ciency of operation as by increasing the tax on the people. The third point which will be con sidered Is, would increasing the fare to five cents really solve the problem and secure the desired result. It is pointed out in thi.s connection that in the 24? cities which ha\e recently increased carfare tho r-vvenue of sev eral companies Instead of increasing has diminished. Mi.rt- F?re( I **??* Revenue. Tn one city In particular an increase of fare sufficient to st cure 20 per cent additional ? evenne was granted. It was found on investigation of the affairs of the company that instead j of securing the additional amount the! company's revenue was approximate-1 ly $?77.000 le??. In another city it was j found that whde the revenue In creased 37 per cent In the first month after the Increase was granted, thia amount fell away until now the in creased revenue is but 30 per cent. Various reasons fo" this are ad vanced. In the first place, jitney lines were started and the competi tion was felt very strongly. In the .-econd place, many people who only j ride a short distance will walk In preference to paying the Increased fare. It is pointed out th.-tt for ? very short-haul passenger that Is loet Uve long-haul passencers must be carried to make up f>-r t he money which is lost when the first person refuse? to ride.

HOOVER WANTS MIXED FLOUR LAW CHANGED Restrictions Deter Millers from ?Making Ready Mixed Article Ready-mixed war flours.

Rainey, ranking mem ber of the Ways and Means Commit tee of th? House, asking an amend ment to the revenue art to suspend the present mixed-flour laws for the duration of the war. Mr. Hoover makes the point that the restrictions of the mixed-flour laws deter the miller from putting up mixed flour, although the war condi tions and the probability of using a 30 per cent admixuture of wheat sub stitute in bread for the duration of the war indicates the advisability if ! not the absolute necessity for the 1 common good of selling' flour mixed according to the Food Administration regulations. | An amendment to accomplish the purpose ?ought accompanies Mr. Hoover's letter.
