THE BROTHERS RUN RUIINIA Conservatives Have All the Votes, But They Have All the Power VAST RESOURCES ARE AT THEIR DEMAND Bucharest, Roumania, Nov. 20.— Three brothers run Roumania—Jonel, Vintilla and Dinu Bratiano. They represent* the present genera tion of the Bratiano dynasty. "Rou mania's uncrowned rulers." Jonel is premier and Vintilla war minister. Backing them in their leadership of a rich country, of 54,000 square miles and 7,600,000 inhabitants are: Political power, material resources and brains. Outside the fact that Jonel is prer mier and Vintilla war minister of Rou mania, is this one feature: The Brati ano dynasty owns the Liberal party that has been in power the last nine years! Even whjn the conservatives were in power, the Britianos had their way. "The ^conservatives have votes, but we have power," said Jonel. With their party supporters back of them, the Bratianos are putting into practice their chief idea, which is to reconcile conservative capital with modern political and social doctrines. This and other ideals they have stak ed on the outcome of the war. "In all countries," says Jonel, "capi talism has been tied up with reaction. This is a false association, which Rou-! mania must be the first state to com bat. It hampers progress and also ham pers capitalism and industrial develop ment. We must win capitalism for the cause of progress. We must make re action appear what it really is—a ten dency as fatal to the increase of wealth as it is to the political advance ment of the people." The Bratiano dynasty is the only actually modern element in this medi eval country. The land-owners are iheir political enemies, although Jonel and Vintilla, especially, are in that class. But Jonel and Vintilla treat their workmen .and tenants as they want the rest of the landowning aris tocracy to treat theirs. The Bratianos are the "Rothchilds of Roumania." They control a total wealth estimated at $600,000,000, which can go as far in Roumania as $10,000,000,000 in the United States. Vintilla is head of 50 trusts and is worth $13,000,000. With this wealth he backs the Liberal party. Even undertakings not directly con trolled by them are reached through the national bank and the banks for urban and rural credit. The dynasty controls the railroads and shipping. Dinu plays his biggest role here. Jonel gets the ideas. He is the think er, originator and schemer. Vintilla organizes tlTem and makes them prac ticable, for he is a business m^n. Di nu. with his money and" pdlj^lfcal j'6w er, helps i!o the rest. Auditorium Vaudeville Tomorrow Night 8:30 P. M.

It only every man and woman could be induced to »dopt the morning inside bath, what a gratifying change would take place. Instead of the thousands of sickly, anaemic-looking pen, women and girls, with( pasty or muddy complexions insfead of the multi tudes of "nerve wrecks," "rundowns," "brain fag»" and pessimists we should see a virile, optimistic throng of resy-ckeekei people everywhere. An lnsiie bath is had by drinking each morning, before breakfast, a glass of real hot water with a tea spoonful of limestone phosphate in it to wash from the stomach, liver, kid neys and ten yards of bowels the pre vious day's indigestible waste, sour fermentations and poisons, thus cleansing, sweetening and freshening the entire alimentary canal before putting mere food into the stomach. Those subject to sick headache, bil iousness, nasty breath, rheumatism, colds and particulary those Srho have a pallid, sallow complexion and who are constipated very often, are urged to obtain a quarter pound of limestone phosphate at the drug store which will cost but a trifle, but is sufficient to demonstrate the quick and remark^ able change in both health and appear ance, awaiting those who practice In ternal sanitation. We must remem ber that inside cleanliness is more im portant than outside, because the skin deec^not absorb impurities to con taminate the blood while the pores in the thirty feet of bowels do. MACEDONIAN CITY IN HANDS OF ENTENTE Continued from Page Onsv the country, was enabled to re-estab lish the capital on their native soil. A temporary capital will be immedi ately re-established. French and Ser bians captured the heights surround ing the town, making it untenable. The Macedonian town of Monastir was evacuated during Sunday night by the German and Bulgarian troops, who retired to prepared positions fur ther north. They thus withdrew from highly unfavorable positions in the plain, where they were exposed to ar tillery fire from the heights to the south and southeast of the town. Not a Surprise. The news of the evacuation of (Mon astir does not come as a surprise, the Associated Press having been inform ed some days aj by the military au thorities that the question as to whether Monastir's political import ance was great enough to justify the military sacrifice necessary to defend the town was being weighed by the general staff, and that military con siderations probably would prevail. Monastir is located at the bottom of a bowl surrounded on all sides by dominating heights. It was therefore tactically extremely unfavorable as soon as the enemy forces gained a footing on the rim of the bowl, as already had been done to the south, less than Ave miles from the town and only a slightly greater distance to the southwest. Decisive Theatre. Since the opening of the campaign in the Roumanian theatre, which, as was cabled recently, is regarded here as the decisive theatre of the whole war front, east and west, it was con sidered a correct decision strategic ally and tactically not to call upon the defenders for heavy sacrifices and efforts to hold the town itself. It is pointed out in Eerlin that Mon astir is likely to be an uncomfortable place for the Entente allied troops, a9 the new Bulgar-German positions command the town in the same man ner as it was previously commanded i»y the enemy guns. Politically, of course, various con siderations urged that efforts be made to retain Monastir, not only because its possession by the Entente AJlies would give the Serbian government a local habitation in Serbian terri tory and encourage- General Sftcr&il, commander of the Entente allied op erations in the Balkans, to press the campaign, but also for its political effect in general. In war, however, military consider ations must prevail over political. The evacuation of Monastir will in a way shift the operative difficulties from the Bulgar-German army to Gen eral iSarrail's shoulders. Up to the present his forces have had the dis tinct advantage of operating at the end of the Monastir-Saloniki railway and with a fairly good network of roads in the rear. Local Importance... The rail head for Field Marshal vou Mackensen's forces, on the other hand, is at Vales (Koprulu), from which point there is only one road to Monastir. This originally was a good road, but is badly cut up by heavy automobile traffic. The retirement of the Germans and Bulgars would have the effect of bringing the attacking forces away from their line of communication and ihto the almost roadless region of southwestern Macedonia and the de fending forces correlpondingly nearer their base of communication. As the present withdrawal has. occurred in the extreme southwestern sector of the front, furthest removed from the Trans-Siberian railroad and from the center of operations, and as the re mainder of the 'Macedonian front is not affected, members of the general staff familiar with Macedonian condi tions insist that the loss of Monas tir can be regarded as only of local importance and without effect on the general strategic situation. It is frankly admitted that Rouman ian attacks in the Kimpolung region, Transylvania, southward of Dragosla-. vele. In the Aberheth region, the Rou manians advanced and took 100 pris oners, cannon and two machine guns. THE DUCKS HAVE GONE. Hunters returning today from Long lake and other haunts of feathered game, report that the ducks hare gone south for the winter. It is probable that the light snowfall of early morn ing sent its warning ahead and that the birds heeded it.\The gee'se made their departure several days ago, and shooting is practically over for the sea son. 01E8 IN LOCAL HOSPITAL.
