JO RUSH ACTION
ON CITY MARKET
? Speedy Passage of Bill to
Reduce Food Prices Pre
dicted By Senator King.
_______ ?
Senator William H. King. of. Utah,
of the Senate District Committee, who
has taken a-leading part In the fight
I against ?peculation in and extortion
ate price? for foodstuff* in Washing
ton, will champion the bill providing
for the taking over of Center Market
in the Senate, in order to free the
people of the District of Columbia
from excessive charges for food prod
uct* and supplies.
"I intend to ask the chairman cf the
District Committee. Senator John
Walter Smith, of Maryland; to refer
thfc bill, which recently passed the
House unanimously. to a special
i gain iliumui of three," said Sen
ator King yesterday. "In view of the
? prompt and unanimous action of the
| Refuse. I believe we will be able to
take affirmative action calling for the
I termination of the lease to the Wash
ington Market Company of this prop
erty very quickly."
3*H I'rges ParUlan Plan.
Senator l^lng said he had observed
t*o operation of municipal markets in
^hropean countries before the war
out. and believed some such
War. as is followed in the Hallea Cen

--Senator King will ask that the raar

trict Committee, which had charge
of his resolution for an investigation
iato market conditions in the Dis
tl^O*.
"I am hopeful that the subcommit
M will report the bill favorably to
Qie full committee and that the com
mittee in turn will report it to the
Senate." be said, "so^that affirmative
action may be taken as speedily as
poaoible."
The elimination of unnecessary trad
ing aud handling of foodstuffs along
th? lines proposed by Commissioner
W.*"?wvTin Gardiner will bring down
prices of food in the District, Sen
ator King states.
l?a the case of wheat, the United
Elates Food Administration, as Com
TBlWToner Gardiner pointed out. was
able, by limiting the number of mid
dlemen handling this grain and Its by
products. to give the producer a larger
price and the consumer a cheaper one.

?There should be established a ter
minal market in Washington, where
the consumers would be brought in
direct contact with tha, producers."
Senator King detiared. ?'and I believe
that the District, if necessary, could
well employ an acrent to purchase
I foodstuffs for them."
Baiter Wants U. S. to Buy
Army Cantonment Sites
L Secretary of War Baker probably
will ask Contrress soon for authoriza
tion to purchase, as part of the per
manent military establishment, the
Cantonment sites in this country.
He probably will not ask that all
be bought, as some of the sites have
not proven to be as desirable a*
originallv anticipated. It is likely
that only a few of the tent camp
sites will be retained.
Much will depend upon the form of
America'?? future military program.

SOUTH EXPECTS
GREATEST YEAR
Cotton and Lumber High;
Raw Materials Plentiful
and Crops Booming.
I Memphis, Tenn.. Jan. 1.?The South
faces the greatest year in ita history,
Memphia business men declared yes
terday. With cotton at top prices
and every indication that it is going
higher.' lumber going higher, farmers
receiving handsome returns for their
crops, factories able to buy coal and
raw materials and labor again plenti
ful. there is prosperity ahead.
Cotton should maintain an average
price of 30 cents in 1919, and better
grades will command more, predicted
L. Salsbury. president of the Chamber
of Commerce, and probably the larg
est cotton planter in the world. This
places cotton on about a parity with
wheat at 12.36 a bushel, the price
guaranteed by the government,
j Tremendous strides were made in
11918 toward producing enough food In
the South to feed itself. Although
'Memphis handles more cotton than
any inland city in the world, records
compiled today showed that this terri
tory. including lar&e part* of Tennes
see. Arkansas and Mississif>pi. pro
duced $20 worth of food crops in 1918
for each $17 of cotton.
Gold Output Smallest
in Past Twenty Years
A decrease of $15.257.200 ir?- the gold j
production and $3,861,156 in the silver i
production for 1918. as compared with
1917. was reported by Director of the'
Mint Baker yesterday. The total ^>ld
| production for 1918 was $83,750,700 and
| that of silver amounted to $71,740,362. j
I Baker naid.
! The 1918 gold output is the smallest
I for the United States Ui twenty years.
I according to Baker's figure*. Silver
production for the last year was the
smallest since 1913, and only four
years show a smaller production than
1918 In the last twenty years.

19 TO RHEUMATISM
Proves Itself Master of This
Painful Disease.
L
Half-way treatment of Rhcuma
| tism will never rid you of it. Bet
tWkr realize from the outset that
v^hsti Rheumatism attacks you
htve a real battle on your hands,
I ?nd that it's a man's job to get
rid of it.
Temporizing with Rheumatism
by the use of liniments, lotions
and other external methods of
treatment, is like trying- to coax
a? enemy to let up in his attacks,
permit you to conquer" him
' ?|tbout resistance.
But you soon learn that Rheu
aUsm will not treat you with
is consideration. The tiny little
vrms flock together by the
tllions and center their attack
jth undivided force. The effects
f the disease are gradual in tak
g hold on the system. In fact,
pains are only slight at first
and do not attract your serious
ittention, but they gradually in
* crease in severity until your en
tire system is firmly within the
tjjrip of the disease. It is then that
you have a real fight on your
for you will find that Rheu
hnatism is a foe that knows just
[low to cripple you. The pains that
?cre hardly noticeable at first be
:ome your constant companions
, uid seem to take delight in your
uiffering.
Of course, if this painful disease
--was on the surface ortly, you
night reasonably expect to get re
Mef by the use of surface remedies,
;nch as liniments and Ather local
| lpplicatjons. But the source of
disease is your blood. The
I IB' disease germs find lodgment
? tfatfc and multiply by the millions
and scatter, by means of the
blood circulation, throughout your
system.
The sensible treatment for this
disease, and the only one from
which you can expect permanent
results, is a treatment that goes
down into the blood supply and
reaches the source of the disease.
S. S. S. is a wonderful blood rem
edy, and is the logical treat
ment for Rheumatism, because it
promptly permeates the entire
blood supply and searches out and
i eliminates the disease germs.
If you arc a victim of Rheuma
j tism, you can take S. S. S. with the
iassurance that you are not experi
j menting, but using a remedy that
I has brought relief to thousands
who have suffered from this pain
ful disease. This great old rem
edy has been sold all over the
United States for more than fifty
years, and has been used with
gratifying" results. It is a great
blessing for a sufferer to, become
acquainted with the powers of
S. S. S., for in this remedy is
found the help that can come only
from the proper ^treatment.
Many letters have been written
to us by those who have used
S. S. S., telling of the good it has
done them. Their statements will
be helpful to many others who suf
fer, and we will be glad to send
you some of these testimonials,
full of this direct evidence of the
value of S. S. S.
We maintain a medical depart-*
ment for the benefit of all who are
afflicted, and our Chief Medical
Adviser, who Is familiar with all
forms of Rheumatism, will gladly
give you advice without charge as
to the treatment of your own case.

i London Applauds Union; Religion
i Bars Italian Princess.
Ix>ndon, Jan. 1.?Suggesting the
j possibility . of a marriage between
the Prince of Wales and an Ameri
can girl, the Express today said:
"Enthusiasm on both sides of the
Atlantic for the marriage would be
unbounded.'TJnlimited dramatic pos
sibilities would be opened up Pfj
such a union."
The newspaper declared a mar
riage between the British prince and
Princess Y'olanda of Italy is improb
able. because of religious barriers.
The newspaper further pointed out
j that the British law and constitu
[ tion^do not make it necessary for
I the neir to the throne to marry a
woman of royal blood.
The article was given a promi

MEXICO TO PASS
FAIRER OIL LAWS
/
Will Repeal Decrees Dis
criminatory Against U.
S. and British.
New York. Jan. 1.?Carrama will
jcall the Mexican Congress into ex
traordinary session to enact oil land
I laws repealing the decrees discrim
inatory against American and Brit
ish interests. Dr. Alberto Pani. un
der appointment as special diploma
tic representative of the Mexican
government at Paris declared before
sailing for Paris today.
The action averts a crisis that
threatened military intervention on
the part of the United States and
Great Britain and which might have
become an issue at the peace table.
Diplomatic intimations from
Washington that the oil laws violat
ed private rights of foreign inter
ests preceded the step.
Might Have Been Insae.
It was indicated several days ago
that the controversy might become
an issue at the peace table and Dr.
Pani suggested that the Carranx*
government was desirous of assist-]
ing in eliminating any outstanding!
troubles that might prove embar
rassing to the United States at the
conference.
I Dr. Pani explained that the Mex-]
ican government has not changed
its attitude toward the oil land j
nationalization scheme, but will pro
tect the property rights of all in- [
terests held J>efore May 1. 1918. i
when the Carranza decree was pro-'
mulgated.
Think* ( arrania Grip Firm.
Dr. Pani forwarded documents to i
Mexico City today following a con- !
fercnce with representatives of i
American interests in Mexico, set-j
ting forth the American claims. He |
asserted he would be glad to be of
assistance to the peace conferees in J
regard to L?atin-American problems, i
He expressed the opinion that a
successful coalition of revolution- '
ists against the Carranza govern-:
ment at this time is impossible, and
I that the government troops have
!the uprisings of Felix Diaz in the
South, and Villa and Zapata in the
j North, well in hand.

OH! THA T BA CKA CHE!
AFTER INFLUENZA?GRIPPE?COLDS
THEN LOOK TO KIDNEYS!
It is a fact to be borne in mind that tb?
effort on the part of nature to throw oil
the poisons during the attack of Spanish
influenza results sometimes K1 nephritis
or inflammation of the kidneys.
In view of the seriousness of this disease
as a result of toxemia, (storage of poisons
within the body) it is most es
sential that treatment be di
