OF POLICE COUR
Plan Suggested in Rome Would Put Easter Always
on Same Day-Vatican Has Yet to Approve
Proposal of Father.
Catholic Church officials in Washing
ton are in favor of remodeling the Gre
gorian calendar in accordance with the
plan proposed In "Rome," a weekly mag
azine published In the Eternal City for
L'ngllslwipeaking priests, provided the
support of the vatlcan can be gained
"I think the proposed change Is a
good thing." says the Jlev. Ignatius
Fealey, rector of St. Joseph's Church.
"There are a number of good points In
Its favor, and It would bring Easter
around at the same time every year.
This is something the church should
strive for, and I would not be surprised
to-flnd that it-will find favor in the eyes
of the Vatican."
Tho plan is proposed by Father
Gabriele Nahapetlan, of Venice, and it
Ends in Bankruptcy
LONDON. Jan. 13. A royal marriage
romance Is behind proceedings which
have been opened in the bankruptcy
court against Count Herman Ostheim.
This obscure UUo covers the identity
of the former heir to the grand duchy
of Saxe-Weimar, who In 1909 renounced
his rights to the revenues and estates
thereof in order to marry Wanda Lot
tero one of the Maxim girls In "The
Merry Widow" production in Daly's' In
He got an allowance of $10,000 from
his royal friends and managed to get
along. His wife sued him for divorce
in France In 1911 and got a dissolution
decree. Other lawsuits in England and
Germany drove the count iirtb' the
hands of a London usurer, who today
filed a petition against him.

As Father Nahapetlan starts his year
on Sunday, Christmas day would fall
on Sunday. April 1 he fixes as Palm
Sunday and April 8 at Easter Sunday.
The only difficulty Is that every leap
year Easter falls on a day which Is
not Sunday. .
He disposes of this difficulty by plac
ing the 356th day In Leap Year after
April 7 and makes It Easter Sunday,
and leaves April 8 that year as an
ordinary Sunday. This would give an
extra rest 'day every four years.
Two Sent to Prison

v NORWICH, Conn., Jan. 15. The su

sent for three months in, Jail on each
count. The maximum penalty on each
count Is thirty years.
A- petition from Mystic clUzens was
read, asking the court to purge that
place of such men as those convicted,
and the prosecuting attorney gave 'as
"Two of you clUzens have hanged
themselves; two have run away; two
have been convicted, and two are to

KEY WEST WILL BE
BADE TORPEDO BASE
FOB PANAMA CANAL
Dreadnaughts to Concentrate
at Guantanamo, Where Big
Defenses Will Be.
Key West will be made the torpedo
base of the Gulf of Mexico and the
southern Atlantic as'soon as the rreat
naval base planned at Guantanamo
Bay is partly completed. At Guan
tanamo will be concentrated heavy
land defenses, shops and docks, and It
will be the base of operations for the
dreadnaughts of the Atlantic fleet
with a view to protecting the Panama
Canal. At Key West will be concen
trated the speedy little craft, the tor
pedo boats and destroyers.
Tho Navy Department Is proceeding
with Its plans for the defense of the
Panama canal precisely as If there were
to be no change In Administration. This
policy is being pursued to prove that
the Improvements, contemplated are dic
tated by tactical and strategic consid
erations which are not to be affected
The Wilson Administration will find
Itself In the midst of much nair-com-pleted
work which It must carry
The Navy Department Is extremely
pleased over the success of the State
Department In acquiring the hills that
line the harbor at Guantanamo. These
hills are naturally situated for defense
and heavy guns and strong walls will
be placed on them, so that a land at
tack from the rear on the naval baso
will stand little chance of success.
No plans for the land defenses have
yet been drawn, the drawings waiting
on the decision of the board of army
and nnw officers which Is toicover the
"ground between January 20 and Febru
ary b. Shops are now unaer construc
tion there. The improvements contem
plated are very extensive, as this naval
base will not only be the point -from
which protection will be extended to
the Panama canal but to much of the
American coast Itself.

Azcarate hinted that King Alfonso had
said that in the event of another minis
