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:

if all shippers will do this we believe It will materially assist us to

Another thought: You will help out the people you buy from. It
is well to remember them, too.

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
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
Finally police reserves reached the
gallery and ejected the leaders, but no
arrests wero mnde.
