He declared that Russia desires peace but he could not see how if a great struggle came Russia could remain outside it. The government has issued a note on the Memel question complaining that the settlement had been made by the Allies without consulting Rus sia or her allies. The question deeply affects the equilibrium of the Baltic region and gravely prejudices the se curity of Russia. The Russian government in its note demands first participation in any international regulation of the Nieman river or of Memel; second, that the international organization in clude representatives of only those powers through whose territories flow the Nieman or its tributaries, and, third, a guaranty of liberty of ship ping on the Nieman. It warns the Allies that through their action they have created grave dangers to Euro pean peace. CLEAR AND COLDER Minimum Temperature Wednesday Moniing Will Be From 38 to 42.

Definite announcemeDt that Paul Steffler, formerly a county commis sioner and nt one time president of the San Antonio Trades Council has been selected as the fifth man on the Tobin-Wright-Lambert ticket was made shortly after noon Tuesday. This completes the ticket as Frank Bushick already bad been decided upon for coiumissior.er of taxation. The ticket as it now lines up ami as it will be submitted to a popular convention next month for en<lor>c inent i< ns follows: For mayor. Sheriff John W. Tobin : for commij | Lionel- of parka and pnF He property. Ray Lambert: fjr < <»m -1 missionar «»f fire and poHee. Phil Wright : for commissioner of streets and public improvements. Paul Stef fler; for commissioner of taxation. Frank H. Bushick. Sheriff Tobin will oppose Mayor Black, if the latter decides to run for re-election, while Mr. Steffier will op pose Street Commisswner William O. Riedeu. The opponents of th? other three commissioners have not yet been announced, but it is likely that Mr. Bushick will have as his op ponent Comuiissioner John P. Pfeiffer, who was elected with Black and Riedeu. Who the other two men on the administration ticket \#ill be is not known, bur so far Commission ers Wright and Labert have no opposition. Black Had Awaited Derision.

Commissioner Pfeiffer in timated Monday that as soon as the fifth man was secured on the Tobin ticket that he might have some sort of hii anonuHcement to ’make. The tax commissioner has openly stated that he would stand for re-elect ion providing he «otild run on a ticket with four other good men. While the city engineer has retrained from mak ing any formal statcmei/L his close friends are confident that he intends running for mayor. A lasi minute effort to form a coal ition ticket between the Black and ' Lambert factions at tbe city hall was made Tuesday, according to a well authenticated report.
