The Southern Express Company Christinas Bulletin
We Have a Suggestion to Make. It Is not altogether a now one, as wo have made It often bofore, but It Is perhaps more Important now than ever before bceuuso of the lncrr.aso In tho number of express shipments each Christmas, us well as at other tlmeti In tho year. It In the desire of tho. Southern ICxpross Company to give tho very best possible serylco thut It can command to Its customers, but tho great rush at tho usual Christmas season Is such that It Is difficult to bring a sulllclent forco to bear on the fa file to do tho business In BUcll a way as wotllti he to the satisfaction of all concerned. Therefore, it Is to the Intortst of our present patrons and our employes and our prospective customers to buy their goods early and ship them early. Our agents can provide lubels reading thus: Forwarded By Southern Express Company (Incorporated; DO NOT OPEN UNTIL CHRISTMAS. Shipper . Place . Tou can ship packages to your friends In this way. with the under? standing I hey will open them Chr'stinas morning about the time Santa Claus Is due. if all shippers will do this we believe It will materially assist us to servo you hotter. Another thought: You will help out the people you buy from. It is well to remember them, too. J. 1). MOCK AUA Y, \V. A. MKIIHGAN, Oenerhl .Millinger, Atliintn, Gm. A gout. C. iM I.OOI?, W.

RIOTOUS OUTBREAK AT PEACE MEETING Now York, December 12.?A riotous outbreak interrupted a Inrgc mnaa ! meeting held at Carnegie Hall to-night in support oj tho arbitration treaties which President Taft has proposed with England and France. Twenty eight reserve policemen were hurried to the hull. The outbreak occurred after Nicholas Murry Butler, president ut' Columbia University had read resolutions urging the Senate to ratify the treaties, and Alfonse K. Koolbe, of the German American Citizens' League, of the State of New York, moved that the majority resolution of the United .States Senate Cointnittco on Foreign Relations he adopted as a substitute for the Butler resolution." "This de? claration Is not a promoter of peace, but a breeder of war," he exclaimed: The words were scarcely out of hiB mouth when men jumped to either side ot tho stage and raised their hands In an apparent signal, whereupon pan? demonium was let loose In the upper galleries. Catcalls, yells, groans and hisses made It Impossible for Chairman Jos? eph H. Choute to proceed with the meeting. One man on the platform Jumped and shouted, "That packed gallery is composed of a lot of cow? ards." At this, the shouts In the gal? lery became lounder and megaphones were brought Into use. Women in evening drtms In the boxen jumped to their feet looking nt their escorts as if expecting the throwing of a bomb. In the midst of the noise Chairman Choate announced that the Butler re? solution had been unanimously adopt? ed. Persons on the main floor took this as a signal for a counter-demon? stration. Jumped to their feet, shouted approval and waved their handker? chiefs and hats. Carnegie Aiunzcd. Andrew Carnegie was down on tilt program as the next speaker, but htr sat In apparent amazement at the demonstration, and In his place, Rabbi Stephen Wise asked for n hearing. 11? was met with such cries n.? ?'iahut tin," and "throw him out" from the gal? leries Above all ho shouted: "1 warn you that no people In the world will feel so badly at the result of thh> meeting as the Irish leaders in the British Parliament." His reference brought forth an even stronger combination of groans nnd howls. Finally police reserves reached the gallery and ejected the leaders, but no arrests wero mnde.
