About twenty of thn Salvationists,

OCEAN PARK, Sept. 12.— The an
nouncement that C. Van Court of Los
Angeles has made complaint to the
postofflce authorities .at "Washington
concerning tho treatment he received
nt the local postofflce from Postmaster
I. E. Meigs, who he claims refused to
give him mail because he applied for It
in a bathing costume, has aroused in
terest here.
The postmaster, who is a, veteran of
the Civil War and although blunt inhis
views nevertheless a popular citizen
here, made the rule effective early in
the summer when the . vanguard of
vacationists would loiter about the
postofflce in dripping wet bathing suits
during the distribution of mails, •'
This, the postmaster says, resulted in
puddles all over the floor, which was as
objectionable to other patrons of the
office as it was to himself and his em
ployes. • .
It is not thought here that Mr. Meigs
will be reproved for taking the action
that has caused the alleged complaint.
"Anyway, the postmaster is not wor
rying," said an attache. "He has the
backing of the community: and the sol
dier vote."

"Ho is a self-made man who worked
his way through school and who then
took the examinations and was admit

so well did he serve his constituents

6th of November I will keep that com
mission unsullied.
"We meet today as the representa
tives of the only sovereign power in
this state, the people themselves. I
believe that the work of this conven
tion will be of such a character that
it will present a strong contrast to the
work of a convention which assembled
a week ago.
"I believe we have met here today as
the representatives of popular govern

meets on high .ground. I believe it
takes a position which none may as
sail. Nobody will be able to say that
we are dictated by any special Inter

"The coming fight before the people
will not be so much a battle, of Re

between bad and good and bosslsm and

have conferred on me. I approve of
the platform you have adopted. With
the assistance of the manhood and wo
manhood of California I believe we can
carry our'banner to success."

Have Been Caused by Engi

Air Brakes
By Associated Press.
, SUDBURY, Ont., Sept. 12.— Twelve
persons are known to be ' dead and
twelve Injured as the result of a head
on collision between two Canadian Pa
cific passenger trains today at Azild,
seven miles west of Sudbury.
The third section of a harvester train
was standing at Azild waiting for the
eastbound express, when the fast train
came along and crashed into it head on.
It is said that the engineer of the ex
press was unable to stop, as the air
brake did not respond.
All the dead and Injured were in a
colonist sleeping car, which was on the
harvester train next to the engine.
So far no list of the dead or injured,
or any official statement as to the
cause of the wreck, has been obtainable
from officials of the Canadian Pacific.
