In temperance reform has been reached
when temperance educational methods
are more essential than ever before,

country are to gather at Columbus,
Ohio, November 14, at a general con
ference to discuss the subject. This
conference will follow the biennial
convention of the Anti-Saloon League
of America, which is to be held in that
city November 10 to 13.
Members of a council of one hundred
from all portions of the United States
have issued a call for a general na
tional convention, when all temperance
organizations are to unite in a com
prehensive, nation-wide program of
Those in this city who signed the call

Saloons Are Reduced.
In the call sent out for the convention
it Is stated that "at the present time more
than 70 per cent of the area of the United
States Is under no-license, and more than
46,000,000 of the people are: living in no
license territory. One-fourth of all the
people in the United States now living in
license territory live in six cities. In all
the sixteen states of the southland there
are fewer saloons than in the single city
of Chicago; while there are thirty-s:x
states of the Union where the aggregate
number of saloons Is less than the number
existing in New York. In short, the
liquor traffic, drfc*en from the rural sec
tions of the nation, has intrenched itself
in the great centers of population, creat
ing thereby a mighty city problem, which
now challenges the united forces of right
eousness in every commonwealth of this
Cities Industrial Centers.
"The cities arc the Industrial and com
mercial centers of the nation. The mil
lions of bread winners, which make u[j
on* of the most substantial parts of our
city citizenship, are. in a very large de
gree. deplorably ignorant of the relation j
existing between alcohol and industrial
problems. Th> business world is uni
form^.! as to th. part alcohol plajv in the j
accident and waste column of the busi
ness ledger. This knowledge is being
slowly forced upon the employers of labor
and the laboring men themselves bj
means of the Insurance liability laws
w iiich are being enacted by the several
state legislatures, together with other
state and federal requirements for the
conducting of industrial enterprises; but
the necessary Information on this subject
inu>t go to thet!?- men in a more direct and
specific way if we art soon to marshal the
forces of the commercial and industrial
world against the iiquor traffic.
Campaign Held Necessary.
"These conditions loudly call for a
campaign of temperance education, na
tion-wide in its scope, which shall have
for its object both the creating of.
more sentiment against the traffic in
these centers of population and the
j calling into existence of more Intelli
gent and aggressive co-operation upon
the part of the reform forces in the
rural sections.
"This campaign should include the
compiling of literature acceptable to
all organized temperance forces; & se
lection of books, pamphlets, leaflets,
tracts and other literature best adapt
ed to present needs, and a general plan
for the systematic distribution and
study of such literature. This campaign
should also include a genuine revival
of temperance pledge-signing, without
preudice to any pledge-signing move
ment now in the field, but. rather, with
a view to creating conditions whereby
the work of all such organized move
ments may bt* carried on with larger
success than
Congresses Suggested.
"This campaign should also include
the holding of anti-alcohol congresses,
purely educational in character, in all
sections of the country In order that
the truth about the character and ef
fects of alcohol may become known to
all classes.
"Moreover, while the campaign con
templated in this call is limited to edu
atlonal work, it should be prosecuted
?vith a view to making' It a powerful
factor In the general movement
throughout the nation for constitu
tional prohibition."
The Anti-Saloon League convention is
to open Monday evening November 10,
with Bishop G. M. Mathews of Chicago

Commissioner Siddons 1s not the only

A Showing of Smart
You'll be agreeably surprised at the wonderful show
ing of smart models we're making this fall. There is
a grace and charm to every garment that shows the in
finite care taken to produce a dainty but serviceable
suit that will give the hand-tailored look so much
desired by the lady of fashion.
The convenience of a charge account gives you
the privilege of using the suit at the time when
you most need it, and allows you to pay for it at
your convenience.
A Striking Fall Suit That Combines
Both Style and Service,
We're showing a beautiful model in a Hand-tailored,
All-wool Serge Suit, with the new three-button cutaway
effect, like the illustration to the right, with the mannish
collar and lined with Skinner's satin. The skirt is a pleas
ing two-piece effect with fullness at the waist line and
inverted pleat down the front. Every line shows the hand
tailoring so essential to service as well as style.
Fall's Newest Fad, the "Sport Coat,"
$ 14.98
The jaunty effect of these Sport Coats gives the wearer
the careless grace so much in demand by the fashionable
young lady of today, whose taste requires something dif
ferent as well as stylish and serviceable. Chinchillas,
Boucles and Zibelines seem to be the favored materials
for these popular coats. They are made in these colors:
Nelrose, cerise, green, brown, blue and black, with large
patch pockets, wide belts, ivory ball buttons, and made
up in the swagger cutaway front effect as well as the
straight front.

1 mits Noon Position Messages Free.
Reports of noon positions made by
steamers on the north Atlantic to the
nearest naval radio station, whence the
information was sent to those interested,
will have to be discontinued in many
Instances. When the reports were in
vited by the naval radio board it was
with the understanding that they- were to
be sent free of cost to the government
in the Interest of shipping generally. Re
cently the Marconi Wireless Telegraph
Company of America notified the United
Slates hydrographic office that, com
mencing November 1, the regular ship
charge of 4 cents per word would be
made on all messages sent from ships
equipped with the Marconi company ap
As the government will not pay the
rate, Marconi-equipped ships wll] be ad
vised that messages from them regarding
noon positions will be refused. As many
steamships are Marconi-equipped the re
fusal of the Marconi company to con
tinue the service for the benefit of ship
ping will cause a heavy curtailment In
the noon position service and will pre
vent owners and those interested from
keeping track of their ships.
