EARLY SHOPPING AS
Appeal "Will Be Carried by
Shps Put In Packages
"Shop early-buy your Christmas
presents early-early In the day and
arty In December. That will be your
biggest sift of the holidays to the
workers behind the counter! and on the
delivery wagons." .
This appeal has been print! on 00.000
allpa by the Retail Merchant! Association,-
and the yare today belnr dis
tributed among the merchants, to ba
sent out with every package from now
until the holidays are over.
The association this year Is using
very possible means to make the "Shop
Earl;" .crusade effective. Becretary
Eller said today that from the orders
for the slips which he had received
today he would probably have to older
M.009 more of them. .,hn. .
It Is the purpose of the merchants, as
expressed fii a resolution recently pass
ed at ameetlng of the board, of gover
nors of the Retail Merchants' Associa
tion, to close at the usual hour until
De&mberie. After the 16th no .limit
will be set on the closing hour, but the
merchants havo pledged" themselves to
close as early as possible. . ,,.,.
In this way the question of whether
the clerks and dellvcrympn mav enjoy
the holiday season or will be subjected
to the hardest work of the whole year,
Is out squarely up to the shopper. The
association wfll try to keep the publlo
reminded of the Importance of early
shopping In every possible way, but
further than this thev are powerless,
and the workers' Christmas depends,
say the merchants, upon the cltlsens.
Merger of Revenue
Posts Arouses Ire
The consolidation of the revenue col
lection districts of Dallas and Austin.
Tex., into one at Austin, has aroused
the Ire of many Texans, and Senator
Culbertson today called on President
Taft to determine If It were possible
for the order consolidating the dis
tricts to be revoked.
It appears that the President Is given
authority to consolidate districts, but
It Is doubted that he has the right to
reestablish districts. This question will
probably be turned over to the Depart
ment of Justice for decision.
The decision of this question will
affect several places In the country, as
four other consolidations were affected
at the same time the order was Issued
In every esse political strife followed
the orders, as they not only wiped out
lucrative positions, but reduced (the
chances of the politically active to get
the coveted place of revenue collector.
