The address formal ly notifying Mr. Chafin of hi; selection as the head of the Prohibition ticket was made by Prof. Charles Scanlon of iPittsburg.

Korl ol For Indigestion: Relieves soar stomach, palpitation of the heart Digests whatyou eat. K. Smiley introduced as presiding of ficer of the ceremonies J. Edward Simmons of New York. When Admir al Evans was brought into the room in a wheel chair the audience applaud ed Mm vigorously, keeping it up until the admiral raised his hand as a re quest for silence. Mr. Simmons then delivered a eulogy of the admiral. Mr. Simmons said the occasion of the retirement of Rear Admiral Evans was to be regretted; because of the ill health which compelled him to surrender the chief command of the greatest fleet of battle ships that has ever made a tour of the world, and because the admiral's brilliant career terminates under the law on his sixty second birthday and the navy loses one of its most experienced officers at a time when in building up the new navy his professional services would be of inestimable value. Calls Him Fighter for Peace. It was appropriate Mr. Simmons said that the retirement of Rear Ad miral Evans should be celebrated in the "Temple of Peace" created by the Mohonk society of Peace years because, while Rear Admiral Er&ai had justly won the title of "Fighting Bob Evans," he is an outspoken, in sistent and persistent fighter for peace. "Now that we have become a world power," said the speaker, "and now that our domestic affairs, as well as our responsibilities in the Philippines in Panama, 1n Hawaii, in Cuba and Porto Rico, subject us to constant danger from the jealous and ambitious aggressions of great naval establish ments in Europe, as well as in the Orient, it stands to reason that both prudence and duty now demand that we do precisely what our kinsmen- in the British. Isles long ago found ab solutely necessary to their self-preservation." In conclusion Mr. Simmons said: "We welcome you, Admiral Evan6, to the shade of private life. We hope your health will be speedily and per manently re-established and we wish for you and for your family all the sweetest blessings of prosperity and happiness." IV TROUBLES HOODS Officials Discussed Them Last Night and Reached No Agreement. EACH SIDE IS WAITING. About Your Dishes. Dishwashing, and the cleansing of the articles you eat with, demand a perfectly pure soap. No one likes even to think of the impure fats and raw rosin of common soaps, coming in con tact with the dishes, glassware and the knives and forks. Better be on the safe side and use Easy Task soap. Everyone knows that's pure, and it only costs five cents a cake. Your grocer has it. Becxt: Gold Mdl Flour for me. AFRAID TO TAKE INITIATIVE OPERATORS NOT ANXIOUS TO START WORK, SO DELAY IS NOT MATERIAL. lABBIX. Indianapolis, Aug. 19. Four offi cials and members of the Indiana Coal Operators' association met with the executive board of District No. 11, United Mine Workers of America, and President Thomas L. Lewis at national headquarters last night with a view to coming to some agreement on the coal industry situation in Indiana. The bone of contention is the discharge of a driver at a mine near Flemingsburg, Sullivan county, for alleged disobedi ence, resulting In work being Indefi nitely suspended at the mine by an or der of the executive board of the min ers. For three hours last night both sides tried to reach some agreement, but failed, and at 11 o'clock it was decid ed to adjourn until this morning at 9 o'clock. According to one of the mem bers of the executive Doard indica tions at the meeting were that the op erators would refuse to allow the "checkoff system in the Eleventh Dis trict mines until the miners were of ficially sent back to work in the Flem ingsburg mine. It is proposed to set tle the question of the reinstatement of the driver at a later date by an ar bitration committee. "Each side seems to be waiting for the other to make the first move," said one of the executive board mem bers after the meeting. "The operat ors do not seem to be anxious to start work in the mines that are now idle until the miners are called back to work at Flemingsburg. Until the op erators make some satisfactory prom ise the miners are not inclined to con cede anything to -the operators. Some thing, however, may be done that will satisfy both sides this morning, al though the miners have no definite as surance that will be the case. ' The operators were represented by Hugh Sharkey, vice president of the Indiana Coal Operators association; P. H. Penna, secretary-treasurer; John Hewitt, superintendent of the Vandal la Coal company, and John Templeton, superintendent of the Coal Bluff Min ing company. W. D. Van Horn. D. N. Curry and Charles Fox constitute the executive board of the miners la the Eleventh district. rtili conrrr-" roa. re6 earefttVyt tr. iliweH's.
