DID YOU WRITE A PRIZE AD? Famous Newsboy Promises Big Treat for "Newsies " * i CHOCK FULL OF ADVICE Tells Little Merchants How to Orow Into Strong and Useful Men. Recent Travels. "Noodles'* Fagan, the most famous I newsboy in.the world, is here in Washing- j ton, and will entertain every newsboy in the city with his unique advice and brand-new songs at the Cosmos Theater on Pennsylvania avenue between 9th and loth streets. The first crowd of boys will be entertained by this happy-faced chap tonight. Every newsie in the city remem bers "Noodles" and his series of free entertainments a little over a year ago. At that time "Noodles" talked and sang and showed moving pictures to 10,<KK) children in this city free of charge. He proved himself the newsboys' friend, and, In additon, he gave away some of the secrets of how to become famous and great, even though the aspirant starts as a Bowery newsboy, as he did. Carnival for Newsboys. "Noodles" has arranged for a great newsboy carnival at the Cosmos Theater for Friday night- That will be a great event, and to put it in "Noodles' " own words: "It will be a great show, and nothing cheap to it. Everybody who sees it will be crazy over it, and It will get them going fine. Newsboys will take part In the performance and will be in full view of the audience. On that auspicious night the champion newsboy of Washington, D. C., w.ll be picked out." Since "Noodles" was here last, he has done a lot of things that no one else has done. He has spoken to 375,OuO women In the state of California on the subject of woman's .suffrage, and in fact, he says, the succes of the "votes for women" movement In California was due to his efforts. He has raised 1130,000 for the stamping out of tuberculosis. He lias established seventy-nine beds in tuberculosis hospitals throughout the country. By selling papers on street corners lie has started twelve newsboy bands in this country and one in Canada. He has spoken before four million news boys and children. He claims to have spoken In every big college and high school in the country. Judge Ben Llndsey gave him a fine letter and told him he was a great factor in the uplift of young American cltlsens. Judge Lindsey presides over the famous juvenile court in Denver. Has Hobnobbed With Royalty. "Noodles" is not an ordinary newsboy by any means, for he has met the King of Spain, the King of England and also met the late father of the present King George. Greater than all these is Presi dent Taft, and the newsboys of Wash ington will remember that "Noodles" went right Into the White House when he was here last, and the President told him he was doing a great work for the news boys and children. "Noodles" has visited Japan, Italy, In dia, Canada, England, Yucatan, Mexico, Ireland, Scotland, Wales. Holland, Bel glum, Prance, Spain, China, Jamaica, Martinique. Porto Rico, Cuba and the Philippines. He knows mere about what Is going on in the world than any other newsboy, presumably, and shows what he knows In his motion-picture talks to his newsboy audiences. Motion, picture travelogues will be the feature of "Noo dles' " free Saturday morning enter tainment, when newsboys' families, moth ers, sisters, little brothers and all,- will be admitted free. How to grow up to be strong men 1s one of the secrets which "Noodles" is making public In his talks to the boys. And be says It in language which every newsboy understands. He Is a clever newsboy, a clever talker, a clever actor and a good singer. He is never without a smile. In fact, "Noodles' " success is due to the fact that he always smiled, even when he was poor and hungry sell ing New York papers on the Bowery. Since those days he has heard many a hard luck tale from boys, and has never failed to give a helping hand or Bome 'good advice. Every day this week "Noodles" will have something fine, something exciting and something funny for Washington's newsl-?. DECLARED TO BE ERRONEOUS. Published Rumor Regarding Navy Yard Skating Rink Corrected. If there Is going to be a meeting of tlfe officers of the District auxiliary of the Naval Relief Society tomorrow afternoon at the home of Mrs. Beatty, wife of Oapt. F. E. Beatty, commandant of the navy yard, to decide if roller skating at the navy yard is tt> be abolished, Mrs. Beatty doesn't know anything about it. Mrs. Baatty, who is president of the so ciety, said today that published reports to the effect that the society rink will probably be abolished were entirely imag inary. There has been a new floor in stalled in the sail loft where the dances at the navy yard are held, and It was feared by some of the officers that ilie roller skating might prove Injurious to it. "We haven't done anything at all about the matter," Mrs. Beatty said this morn ing, "and I do not know where such re ports can come from. We will hold a meeting In about ten days and will taH over the skating question then." The Monday skating clubs have been a popular fad, even the retired army and naval officers having taken to skating. The officers of the aux.lary. are: Mrs. F. E. Beatty, president; Mrs. Seaton Schroeder, first vice president; Mrs. Wil liam Blddle, second vice president; Mrs. Richard Walnwright, sr., third vice presi dent; Mrs. Richard Walnwright, Jr., sec retary; Mrs. Reginald Belknap, treasurer; Mrs. Alexander Sharp, chairman relief committee, and Mrs. A.

Friends of the arbitration treaties be tween the United States and Great Brit ain and France are today pointing to a speech made by Secretary of State Knox last -November to show that the Lodge resolution of ratification simply upholds the attitude of the administration In the past and does not Involve a ''backdown" b# the administration. In fact, it i? now being declared that the new resolution of ratification origi nated. with the administration. The Cincinnati speech of Secretary Knox is quoted to back up the statement he made a f?w days ago, that "it is a mistake to allege that the resolution or ratification of the peace treaties proposed by Senator Lodge involves a surrender of the .administration or the Senate of any position they hold in respect to the treaties." What Knox Said. In the Cincinnati speech Secretary Knox said: "Every agreement to arbitrate must go to the Senate for its approval. There can be no arbitration without its ap proval. An^ agreement to arbitrate goes to the Senate for its approval either be cause the executive branches of the two countries concerned in the difference agree that the difference is one for arbi tration or because, failing so to agree, the commission of inquiry reports that it Is such a difference. "How can the Senate's power over the agreement be less if it goes to the Senate after the commission's report that it pre sents an arbitrable question than if it had gone there because of the opinion of the executive branches of both govern ments to the same effect?" In his speech, the friends of the treaties point out. the Secretary of State, who negotiated the treaties on behalf of the United States, construes them to mean just what they are declared to mean in the resolution of ratification proposed by Mr. Lodge. * Conceded Just by Taft. Secretary Knox would not have made such a positive statement in his Cincin nati ipeech, it is further held,-if he had not known that the negotiators of the other two governments agreed with him. As to the confirmation of the American commissioners by the Senate, President Talt In many speeches has conceded that that action was just and proper. It was natural that he should do so, it is held, because Secretary Knox told the commit tee on foreign relations before any action was taken upon the treaties last summer j that it was the desire of the President that the resolution of ratification should provide for the confirmation of the Amer ican commissions by the Senate, but that it was not deemed desirable to put in the body of the treaties a matter of this kind, which was wholly within the jurisdiction of the United States. EXPECTS GREAT HARMONIZER. Mrs. Janet B. McGoveni Predicts i Coming of Religious Teacher. "The signs of the times point to the coming of another great religious teacher wliose aim wiil be not- the founding of a new religion, but the harmonizing of all that has gone before." So declared Mrs. Janet B. McGovern of California in an address on the signifi cance of the new year at Theoso, hie HaU, 1517 H street northwest, yesterday. She declared that the keynote of the new year was unity. POLICEMEN THE PALLBEARERS. Funeral of Mrs. Geneva Thomasson Held This Afternoon. Funeral services for Mrs. Geneva Thomasson.

AMERICANS IN PERSIA SUBJECTED TO THREAT Told They Will Be Punished if They Delay Turning Over Treasurer's Office. TEHERAN. January 15. ? F. E. Cairns, the American to whom W. Morgan Shuster, the former treasurer general of Persia, transferred the af fairs of that office, yesterday informed the government that while hfe and his colleagues intended for the present to perform their respective duties,- he dis claimed all responsibility for the management of the treasury adminis tration from the moment that Mor nard took summary possession. M. Mornard, who is the Belgian ex director of Persian customs, recently assumed control of the department as head of the commission appointed by the Persian government. Threat of Punishment. In acquainting Mr. Cairns and the other American officials with the con tents of the cabinet^ message direct ing him to take possession of the treasury offices,.M. Mornard told them that if there was any further delay in turning over the treasury not only would they be dismissed from their positions, but punished. Mr. Cairns in his notification to the government said the motive of the cabinet's improper language was in comprehensible. He added that he had communicated with the government at Washington regarding the subject of the employments by the Persian gov ernment, and the government's threats of punishment to himself and his American colleague. The cabinet appears already to have re pented of its inconsiderate language, and Mr. Caifns has received an official com munication politely urging him and the other American officials, in the Interest of the financial administration, not to re fuse the assistance of M. Mornard. The tension, therefore, is relaxed for the present. Obstacles to Elections. No progress toward the new elections, which will follow the dissolution of par liament, lias yet been made. The super vising committee resigned yesterday on the vague plea thaf it was encountering insuperable obstacles. It is reported that government troops have entered Shahrud, a small town which lies about fifty miles to the south of Astrabad, after inflicting a serious de feat on the followers of the ex-shah, Mohammed AU Mirza. LONDON, January 15.?The British and Russian legations at Teheran have noti fied the American officials that they are prepared to support the latter's claim against the Persian government, says a Teheran dispatch to the Times. The Americans ask for the balance of their three years' pay and to be allowed to de part. FARMER "JOKE" VICTIM. Administers Whisky for Alleged Snake Bite; Indictment Follows. SAVANNAH, Ga., January 15?The kind heart of R. I* Stone, a'farmer of Carbondale. has resulted in getting him Into trouble. He has been indicted by a grand jury for giving whisky to minors. Several young girls were picking berries on Mr. Stone's place. They knew he had liquor at home and simulated snake bite in order to get him to give them a taste of the liquor. The screams of the girls, apparently genuine, brought Mr. Stone hurrying to the scene. When he reached the girls he found them seemingly in great terror for their Hves. The snake-bite story was told him, and, he hurried away for a flask. The girls, after they had tasted the liquor, told Mr. Stone he was the victim of a joke.

A de livery horse from Heed's grocery running down 1st street and turning toward South Elkins was headed off and In attempt ing* to turn around and start back ran across the sidewalk at the corner of 1st street and Davis avenue, where it struck a water plug, which, chilled by the extreme cold, was snapped off. As a result the water system of the city had to be cut off for several hours uatfl temporary repafrs were mads. Neither the hqrse nor.sleigh stiffened a scratch, i LI LOUVRE ; ? 1115-1117 F St. ANNUAL JANUARY SALE IN OUR SUIT'AND DRESS DEPT.

Problem of Future Control Consid ered by Commissioners. Legislation transferrins excise matters from the jurisdiction of the board of as sistant assessors of the District may not be recommended to Congress this session. So far the Commisloners have been un able to agree upon an authority In which to lodge this governmental function. The recommendation that the excise duties performed by the assistant asses sors be transferred to a board consisting of the two judges of the Police Court and the judge of the Juvenile Court practi cally has been abandoned. This sugges tion at one time, it was believed, would be adopted, but so many objections to its feasibility have been pointed out that the Commissioners practically have given up consideration of it. Following the Kalbfus-exclse board in vestigation the Commissioners, in giving Mr. Kalbfus a celan bill of health, said they were convinced that there should be a separation of excise and assessment matters. Preparations Immediately were begun to draw up a a bill with that end in view. Although several months have elapsed since the work was started, the bill, it is said, is still far from completion, with no indication that It will be ready for in troduction in Congress this session. vVhether to provide for the creation of an excise board, the members of which will have no other governmental connec tions, or turn over excise matters to a board made up of officials already con nected with the government, is the prob lem facing the District heads. The for mer plan, it Is conceded, would involve a much greater expense. The Commissioners, it Is understood, have received Intimations from certain members of the District committee of the House that they do nut favor the plan to separate excise matters from the duties of the assessment board. If the Commissioners sltould decide to abandon the plan It is said to be likely that they would endeavor to enlarge the member ship of the board. To Consider Sewage Question.

Vessels Built in 1911 Number 612, With Tonnage of 82,267. In spite of the fact that it is asserted that the coastwise business on the Atlan tic coast is decreasing the report of the Department of Commerce and I^abor states that the facilities of the country for coastwls* traffic were increased dur ing the six months ending December SI by 612 sail and steam vessels built and registered in America, with an aggre gate gross tonnage of 82,267. This is an increase in number but a decrease in tonnage as compared with the same peri od in 1910, when 589 vessels of 137,508 gross tons were constructed. Of the craft built during the last half of 1911 514 were wooden steam vessels, 61 wooden sailing shipst one steel sailing vessel and 36 steel steamers.
