He thought it could be done under the general welfare clause of the constitution. "The country," he declared, "does not yet 'know how hard it has been hit by the dis aster, for not only has San Francisco been Injured but the entire country is af fected." Mr. Newlands asked for immediate con sideration of the resolution. Speaking for himself, Mr. Perkins ex- ! pressed regret that the resolution had ■been presented without consulting t lie California senators. He was opposed to I any congressional action in advance of an j official request from California. He had no doubt that Mr. Newlands had been ac- j ^uated by generous impulses, but he felt 1 that if he had consulted with the Call- I fornia senators he might have been dis- I suaded from presenting flu resolution which he considered would have been j most desirable. i Mr. Aldrich then moved the reference of I the resolution to the committee on finance ■ and that motion passed without opposi tion.

If you call for a Coca Cola you are served with a sure enough, pure, un adulterated Coca Cola. If you call for a Strawberry Ice Cream Soda, you are served with a Soda containing fresh crushed strawberries and the purest syrup. Reverting to Coca Cola: Perhaps you are not aware that Norton bought more Coca Cola last year than any single fountain in the United States. It’s a published fact. That doesn't necessarily mean that Norton served a heavier trade on Coca Cola (though possible), but it certainly does mean that he served pure Coca Cola. We mention Coca Cola merely as an example.

FEAR OF SUFFERING IS SAID TO BE UNFOUNDED San Francisco, May 2.—An investigation made today has demonstrated that the fears that San Francisco will suffer a period of hard times as an aftermath of the disasterous lire is unfounded. Care ful estimate made by authorities com petent to speak show that within the next year there will be over $200,000,000 available for the rehabilitation of San Francisco.

Figuring this amount which will be available, the investigators did not take into consideration the sums that may be raised for the beautification of the new city. The vexatious problem of locating the new Chinatown will probably be settled to the satisfaction of the Chinese colony.
