Railroad Official Plans to
Assist in the Work for Bet

No City Business to Be
Transacted on Turkey Day
Route Business Before
the Board, Monday.
Fights for Her Father's Lfe
Before an ordinance Is prepared to
regulate the ways and mean of safe
guarding the railroad crossings in the
city, superintendent Nettleton Neff, of
the Richmond division of the Pennsyl
vania railroad company, has requested
that he be allowed to address the
board of works on the proposition. The
board of works received a communica
tion from the superintendent Monday
and will grant the request and hope to
receive many valuable suggestions
from the railroad official.
The agitation for better protected
crossings arises from the serious and
fatal accidents which have occurred
at these diffehent points. Commer
cial organizations also have the propo
sition in hand and have strongly con
demned the existing conditions.
The board has authorized the city
attorney to draw up an ordinance mak
ing It compulsory for the railroad com
panies to employ watchmen at all un
protected crossings, and to install arc
lights, so that the crossings will be
well lighted at all hours. Crossings
which now have one flagman, but
which have been scenes of fatal acci
dents, will be required to be guarded
by two watchmen.
Thanksgiving a Holiday.
Thanksgiving will be observed by
the city administration. There will
be no meeting of the board and mat
ters which were unfinished at the Mon
day morning session will be taken up
next week.

Four cars of prairie hay were order
ed for feed for the fire and ambulance
and patrol horses. The board finds
that the animals keep in Just as good
flesh on this hay as on timothy, and
that a saving of several dollars on the

of the western hay.
On petition the Wayne Works and
the American Seeding Machine com
pany, a resolution was adopted for
the pavement of North Fifteenth from
E to F street. Brick has been sug
gested as the material to be used in
the improvement. The greater portion
of the expense of the Improvement
will fall upon the petitioning com
panies. South Twelfth street residents ask
the con? tlon of a cement curb
and gutter from E to H streets.
Officials of the Terre Haute, Indian
apolis and Eastern Traction company
will be met Friday by the board. Mat

Health Officer Says Advice
Against Over-feeding on
Turkey Day Useless.
That it Is useless to warn against
over-eating on Thanksgiving day is the
reason assigned today by Dr. T. Henry
Davis, local health officer, for not issu
ing a public protest against the annual
mistake of American people. Admit
ting that the heavy eating on the holi- i
day is the cause of many minor ills,
the city health officer says that people
do not heed warnings of this nature,
and therefore he might as well "save
his thunder" for some other occasion.
The health department is expecting
the usual number of cases of indiges
tion, colds, etc., following the festive
day. The cause in most cases will

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 27. Acting
on authority given by Theodore Roose
velt himself, the Philadelphia North
American announces today that the
president will not be a candidate
for president in 1912. This announce
ment was called for Thursday by wide
spread reports resulting ffom the
colonel's editorial on the trust that
he had deserted President Taft and
would himself seek the nomination.
The North American says in part:
"Theodore Roosevelt's recent editor
ial in the 'Outlook' upon the trust
question has led to deductions so false
and to political discussion so unfor
tunate that it seems expedient for an
accurate and authoritative statement
to be made regarding his position,
principally towards the campaign of
1912. Such a statement can be made
better, perhaps, by the North Ameri
can than by any other agency.
Silence Misunderstood.
"Just one year ago today Colonel
Roosevelt confided to this newspaper
his views touching the use of his
name as a receptive candidate for the
republican nomination and his firm
purpose in relation thereto. There
was ample reason for his expressions.
Ever since his return from abroad
there had been a growth of public in
terest regarding his attitude toward
the president. At that time influential
eastern papers were proclaiming that
Colonel Roosevelt was actually pledg
ed to support Mr. Taft for renomina
tion and were intimating that news of
this arrangement emanating from the
White House itself. Many national
leaders accepted these statements as
facts. Indorsement of the Taft admin
istration in the New York state plat
form was bailed as proof that Roose
velt was committed to the Taft candi
dacy. "Those who have been in close touch
with Colonel Roosevelt since the pub
lication of his articles have been sur
prised not only at the extent of the
sentiment for him, but at its manifes-

ago, and exactly as he has done fre

"Colonel Roosevelt will not support
any man for the nomination in 1912,

never gave Mr. Taft any pledge or of

have such an impression.
"As for himself, Colonel Roosevelt
is not a candidate, nor has he Deen

ROME, Nov. 27. The secret consis
tory, which elevated Archbishops Far
ley and O'Connell and Mgr. Falconio,
all of the United States, to cardinal
ates, was held today in Consistorial
Hall of the Vatican.
Nineteen new cardinals were cre
ated, but eighteen names only were
read by the sub-dean. Cardinal Van
nuttelli. The nineteenth name being
withheld is supposed to be the pa
triarch of Lisbon. At the end of the
secret ballot the doors were thrown
open and the Pope was borne by Swiss
guards back to his apartments. The
scene was gorgeous, the new cardinals
holding a public reception immediate
ly following.
Seldom in the history of Catholicism
have so many princes of the church
been raised to that position at one
time, and it is unlikely that so great
a number will be created at any other
consistory within the lifetime of any
of the new cardinals.
The New Cardinals.
The prelates elevated to the cardi
nalate today are Mgr. Diomede Fal
conio, apostolic delegate to the United
States; Archbishop William H. O'Con
nell of Boston; Archbishop John M.
Farley of New York; Mgr. Cosy
Macho, archbishop of Valladolid; Mgr.
A. Vico, papal nuncia at Madrid; Mgr.
J. Eranito di Belmont PignatelH;
Archbishop Francis Bourne of West
minster; Archbishop Francis S. Bauer
of Olmuetz; Mgr. L. A. Amlette, arch
bishop of Paris; Mgr. F. V. Dubillard,
archbishop of Chambrey; Archbishop
Frank X. Nagel of Vienna; Mgr. De
Gabriers, bishop of Montpelller,
France; Mgr. Bisleti, papal major
domo; Mgr. Lugari, assessor of the
holy office; Mgr. Pompeii, secretary of
the congergational council; Mgr. Bil
lot of the Jesuit order; Mgr. Van Ros
sum, redemptionist; Mgr. Enrique de
Almaraz, archbishop of Seville.
Today the twenty score or more of
cardinals living in Rome arrived at the
Vatican about half an hour before the
time set for the ceremony, gathering
in the great Hall of the Consistory.
Before the arrival of the Pope, they
broke up into three groups, the cardinal-bishops
in one, the cardinal
priests in another and the cardinal
deacons in the third, standing accord
ing to precedence, and behind them
archbishops, bishops, heads of great
congregations and other high person
ages all bent the knee on the appear
ance of the Pontiff when he entered
robed in white, surrounded by his
usual entourage and followed by Noble
and Swiss guards.
Kiss the Pope's Hand.
The Pope greeted the assemblage
and then seated himself on the throne,
and the long ceremony of kissing his
hand began. At its conclusion the
master of ceremonies cleared the hall
of everyone except the Cardinals.
The ceremony that will go down in
history was then proceeded with. The
Pope offered a short prayer and then
delivered a brief allocution.
The names of the nominees for car-
dlnalshlp were read, the Pontiff in
quiring the opinion each time of the
Cardinals, who, however, are not ex
pected to reply, the raising of their
red caps being taken as an affirms
Thus concluded the greatest event
in the career as Pope of Plus X. He
will be known to Catholics and the
world in general as the years go by,
more for this great consistory the
sixth since his election to the ponti
ficate than for any other event in his
life. This applies more emphatically
to America than to any other part of
the world. Pope Pius will be remem
bered by American citizens as the
Pope who acceded to the wishes, yea,
pleas, of the millions of Catholics liv
ing within the boarders of the United
States that there be other American
Cardinals to help in the work under
taken alone by Cardinal Gibbons.
The consistory today was rendered
all the more important because of the
conditions prevailing; at the time it
was held. Italy, of which Rome is the
capital, is at war with Turkey, in one
of the most momentous struggles of
modern times, which recalls the olden
days of the Crusades, wben all Chris
tendom handed together in war on the
Infidels of Asia. .

Representatives of Foreign
Powers at Chinese Capital
Hear Rebel Army Is De
feated at Hankow.
The relation of the anti-saloon
league to the Christian church, was
the principal topic treated In several
local pulpits both Sunday morning and
evening by visiting ministers from
Indianapolis, who came here to con
duct the annual one-day campaign in
the interests of the league. Speakers
all over the city told congregations
that the anti-saloon league was act
ually no separate Institution fighting
the liquor traffic, but was merely an
organization gotten up by the leaders
in the churches, and therefore should
be heartily supported by the churches.
The collections taken in the interests
of the league, although the exact
amount has not yet been computed,
is sure to run considerably higher
than In any previous year.
The unanimous assertion of the
league representatives was that the
recent legislation favoring the liquor
interests is only an "ebb in the tide."
They told their audiences that the
cause of prohibition has met wth ser
ious reverses in Indiana in the last
few months and that it is time for
good citizens to awaken to a realiza
tion of the situation. The speakers
said temperance people were not
daunted by the number of towns in
the Hoosier state which have been
voted "wet" recently as a result of
the town and township option law.
They say that the turn in the tide
is only temporary and that such
events must be expected in any great
moral reform. The reactionary legis
lation is inevitable and that it will
come soon, possibly as soon as the
next meeting of the state legislature,
was the, conclusion drawn by the tem
perance speakers. They claimed that
the country Is progressing steadily
toward prohibition and that it only
be a few years until the federal gov
ernment stamps out the liquor traffic
in the United States.
The general belief expressed by lo
cal church people is that the various
meetings Sunday were a great help
for the temperance cause In Wayne
county. The collection of money for
