SOliTH IS !.M!f 0 BY JAMES lillIXE 80UTHERN COMMERCIAL CON GRESS LISTEN8 TO NOTABLE ADDRESS BY BRITISH AMBASSADOR, Washington, Dec.* ft.—Expressing the conclusion that a gr^at future Is about to dawn upon the south. James Bryce, the British ambassador, today received a notable reception from the delegates in attendance upon the Southern Commercial congress, follow ing a speech in which he declared that he Is a well wisher of the south land. After declaring himself inter ested in the progressive movement noted in the south, the ambassador contrasted conditions in that section of the south twenty-seven years ago when he visited the south with those he observed recently. "Since 1 came here eighteen months ago," said Mr. Bryce, I have twice visited the south. I can hardly ex press to you the contrast between what I positively witnessed twenty seven years ago and the present condi tion. Wherever I have been in the south I have been struck by the signs of activity, progress and development." The other speakers were William J. Oliver of Knoxvllle, Tenn., Clarence H. Poe, editor of the Progressive Farmer, Raleigh, N. C., and Dr. J. A. Bonsteel of the United States bureau of W orld Coming to End Again. York, Pa., Dec. 9.—December is to be a strenuous month, if the prophecies of Lee J. Spangler, York's direful prophet and soothsayer, meek with fulfillment. According to Spang ler, no less a catastrophe than the end of the world is to take place the latter part of the month—probably on Sunday, Dec. 27. However, it may take place a week earlier, Sunday, Dec. 20, and thus afford an economical solu tion of the Christmas present problem. Some of the terrible things that will Immediately proceed the end 0f the world are described by Spangle.* in the following alarming fashion: Nation shall arise against nation. Kingdom shall arise against king dom. There shall be famines and pesti lences and earthquakes. Rivers will dry up. The flsh of the sea will die. The sea will boil up with a great noise. The cities of the nations will fall. Mountains will not be found. Island will pass away. The city of Boston will sink. New York will go up In smoke. People will flee to the mountaiitp. The land will dry up to get ready for Are. The crops will fall and prosperity will be cut off. The banks will keep On failing. This cannot be stopped. Roosevelt will get rid all fcit money. The treasury will go dry. People will carry their money In their pockets and hide it in thilr houses. Families will steal it from one an other. This is the gold that, is piled up for the last days. This gold will rust In your pockets. It will give you more trouble than good. Labor organizations will come un der one head and rule the land. There will be great wrath among the people. Hatred, killing one an other, hanging themselves and chil dren will rise against their parents, two against three and three against two. Mother-in-law against daugh ter-in-law. All plagues that is written In the bible will be brought forth. The land will be full of lice, frogs, crickets and locuses. Whosoever will b«! stung of these locusts will die. There will be signs in the sun, In the moon and in the stars. In the end of time the sun will be black and the land will be In dark ness. The moon will be as blood, th stars will fall arid the heavens wll be shaken.

Automobile For Which North Dakota Man Are Agents Won Sensational Speed Race. Pittsburg Dispatch: Ascott Park, Los, ^ngeles, Cal., was recently the scene \f the liveliest and most sensa tional 24-hour speed and reliability race ever pulled off in the west. Every auto fan within motoring distance was out to cheer the victors and speed well the less fortunate limping lag gards In this strenuous day and night endurance grind. The would-be auto ists and their first and second cousins of the countryside were also there in goodly numbers to swell the lusty en thusiasm of the big and good-natured crowd. Among the contestants were several leading makes of the multi-cylinder cars, ranging as high In price as 4, 750, and a single-cylinder $500 runa bout, which Leon 3hettler has affec tionately dubbed the "Baby Reo." Neve* before did motor enthusiasm run riot in Los Angeles as it did when this little car, driven by Lee Garrick. finished fourth, almost neck and neck with its four and six "lunged" bigger rivals. In unmistakable terms it won the spontaneous good will and admira tion of the yelling crowds when, after its 24-hour constant and consistent chugging and chasing, it finished with honors and defeated by a. good margin several higher-priced competitors list ing as high as $2,950. Although the track was very heavy and unfavorable the "Baby Reo" averaged over 20 miles per hour for the entire 24 hours. Winning this victory as the "Baby Reo" did, hard by the heels of its sen sational record in the recent Long Is land 210-mile mechanical efficiency contest, motorists are commenting fa vorably upon this husky» and popular one-lunged mqtor car. An article fresh from the pen of Charles J. Glldden, describing some of his thrilling experiences among the cannibals in the Fiji islands, is one of the many Illuminating and fascin ating articles In the current number of The Reo Echo. Mr. Glldden also touches eloquently upon some of his rugged motoring experiences in the Arctic zone, including his journeys through New Zealand, Australia, Java and other countries. Copious illus trations adorn and lend added Interest to this masterful narrative of Mr. Glidden, which Is printed for the first time, copies of which Beek. &.

Washington, Dc. 0.—-An emergency volunteer army measure wa^ advocat ed yesterday by Pres. Roosevelt In special message sent to congress and the draft of the bill accompanying the message was introduced in th# senate by Mr. Cullom. The president says the bill is intended to replace the present law which was placd o4 the statute books "piecemeal and hur riedly, partly on t:e eve of the waft with Spain and partly after hostilities had actually commenced." After de» daring the present law too faulty an| wholly inadequate for a speedy organ, ization of a volunteer force, the presi* dent says the bill proposed which was drawn under Supervision of the chief of staff of the army, has the hearty approval of the war department. The message says further: It is designed to afford the complete machinery by which should we b« confronted with a foreign war, th* executive power could proceed at once to transform enthusiastic and patriot ic citizens into efficient and organized soldiers. Happily there is at present no cloud upon our horizon, but that very fact affords us the best oppor tunity to proceed with deliberation and care in preparation of laws and adequate and indispensible for our possible war needs."

Fatally injured: Louis Pratt, known as Adam Ood, a street preacher Lola Pratt, aged S Michael Muilane, a patrolman Patrick Clark, police sergeant. Slightly Injured: Harry B. Stege, policeman George M. Holt, probation officer. The trouble occurred when the streets were crowded with people. While the battle was in progress, the participants traversed an entire block, the final stages of the fight being en acted directly across the street from an entrance to the police station. Cause »f Trouble. George M. Holt, probation officer of the Juvenile court, went to Firth and Main streets to investigate a case of alleged abduction. Near that street corner he came up on Sharp, known as "Elijah II." who, surrounded by companions, was exhorting a crowd of street loafers. With Pratt were J. Seizer, a woman and Ave children. The children ranged In age from 14 to 3 years. The officer's suspicions were aroused by the manner In which the woman attempted to secure money contributions from the crowd, and he decided that she and her male com panions were not proper persons to have the custody of young children. Uses Revolver. The woman announced that aha and "Adam God" would conduct services at Creighton's or Poor Man's Mission, one block north, at night, wherenpon she and her companions started in the direction of the mission. Officer Holt then inquired as to the identity of the children. The woman replied that the officer "had better attend to his own business." The officer persevered in his Inquiries, when "Adam God," whose long flowing beard and hair gave him the appearance of a patri arch, threatened the officer with phy sical violence. Officer Holt was not armed, but stood his ground, and "Adam God" struck him a heavy blow behind the ear with a pistol, making an ugly wound. -Holt then started for the police station for assistance and as he moved away the preacher tried to shoot, but was So excited that he dropped his revolver as he attempted to draw it and when he picked It up and snapped Jt at the officer, tha car tridge failed to explode. Rush For Aid. Officer Holt rushed into the police station ^nd anhounced that a band of religious fanatics, armed to the teeth, was at the very threshold of the po lice station, and he warned the officers to prepare for trouble. The police sergeant in charge ordered Patrolmen Chas. Dalbow and Harry E. Stege to go out and arrest Sharpe and his fol lowers. The religionists were within 50 yards of the police station when the officers stepped into the street. They gave evidence of being In a frenzy of rage, and with profane abuse they served notice on all who chanced to hear them that they would preach "right under the eaves of the police station and the police cannot prevent us." Open Fire on Police. The officers were not expecting ser ious trouble and were not prepared for volley of bullets which met them uiimediately after they appeared on I 'M scene. Dalbow was killed instantly and a bullet passed through Stege'a arm. Other officers, hearing the firing, rushed into the street, and a general battle ensued. The officers as they stepped from the building, offered themselves as tar gets to their opponents of the fight, but were unable to shoot without en dangering the lives of Innocent persons. Lieutenant Clark, who had come Into the street unarmed, was shot In the eye, and Patrolman Muilane was shot in the back as he hurried into the po lice station for reinforcements. 1 Pratt Shot Down. .In the meantime a riot call had been sounded and policemen were appearing irom all directions.

This is no new complaint, engendered by modern ideas of luxurious living. It Is as old as the time of President Jackson, who found space lacking for the reception of his guests. Today the chambers assigned for public use are fairly adequate to their purpose, but the private quarters of the president's family are most un comfortably cramped.

The seriously Injured were taken to hospitals and then- the police began to clear the streets of all street preach ers. and it is said that the trouble to» day marks the end of religious exhor tations on the streets of Kansas City. John Sharp, referred to Ih the above Associated Press dispatch, and his band of followers, will be remembered by a great many North Dakota people. Sharp, who calls himself Elijah II, was in the state a year ago last summer with his wife, five children and another man and woman.

Mrs. Harrison's reign was unfortu nately cut short by her death and this cast a shadow over tI«o balance of the social festivities.

It may suit republican simplicity, but it does not at all accord with diplomatio propriety, that a great country should leave Its chief magistrate destitute o| provision for the entertainment of vis iting royalty. The late Mrs. Harrison attempted to remedy the matter by urging the addU tlon of wings on either side of th« present building—not, &s she said, fot her own occupancy, but "for the com fort and convenience of her successori and for the provision of a home which might be creditabje to the executivf of the greatest nation of tUfe globe.* It was her idea to restore the wholi of the existing mansion to the use ol the president's household, making on* of the proposed wings an art gallerj and historical museum, and devotlnf the other to public functions and th« transaction of official business.
