The following interview of Warden Gilvan, of the Missouri penitentiary, in the Jefferson City Tribune, does not indicate that the world is getting better very fast: "The institution is rapidly filling tip with the most dangerous class of criminals. There are more of these men there now than ever before. Robberies have become so common over the State that the penitentiary is receiving the worst class of in- imVfer1iTitsTiTsr6ryr Hold-up men; footpads, high-class burglars, pick pockets and thieves in general are 'crowding the criminal court dockets of the State "and being sent to the penitentiary in great numbers. Many of these felons are desperate men, something that the prison officers Shave had forcefully impressed upon them here of late through bold at tempts to escape from the prison. Discipline will have to be tightened up in dealing with these men or there will be killings to relate." THE This Week NO EFFORTS BEING MADE TO REPUDIATE WAR DEBTS TO U. S. Both British and French Sources of Information Deny Rumors. London, June 25. "Great Britain has not the slightest intention of re pudiating any war, debts. In fact, she is now preparing to repay what she owes the United States." Thus Lloyd George, British prime minister, gave the lie to widespread rumors in the" United-States report ing Britain's stand to the contrary. "Great Britain is prepared to pay America and will do so," he said. ''We never expected any help fro:n that nuarter, other than the suspen sion of the interest charges on Brit ish debts, which the United States al ready has granted. I have never eveu heard repudiation discussed." Paris, June 25. France has not de cided upon any move to suggest re pudiation of war debts. This was ascertained through a careful canvass of the members of the members of the parliamentary finance commission. Mnwrvrr. several of the commis sioners seemed of the opinion that England is expected to make such a suggestion, although nothing has been actually settled. Should England make the first move France naturally woud follow, and the result would be an indefinite suspension of payment on all inter allied war loans. In such an event, the United States, being the only creditor, would be the only sufferer. Corbin-Bush.

There is lit tle prospect of a decline in food and clothing prices this year and in creased exports may actually cause an advance. Royal Meeker, commis sioner of labor statistics, said today. "There can be no decline in prices until there is a decrease of currency in circulation or an increase in the goods exchanged - for currency" Meeker said. 1 . ' ; Currency is being deflated slowly with the paying off of debts, but this can scarcely affect prices this year, according to Meeker. There is also nv possibility of an increase in quan tities of vital necessities of life being produced' this season, and generally prospects are that food and cotton crops will be below normal T ' " "Inasmuch as the food budget con stitutes about 40 per cent of the en tire budget of- the average famfly.S Meeker added, "there can scarcely be an appreciable lowering in the level of prices until the cost of food comes down. -. "At present there is no prospect of a decline in the price of clothing, nor can there be any until there is a con siderable increase in the cotton and wool crops."

In the west parFof thebuntyTln the neighborhood of Foster, there are several coal mines and recently a citizen of that town, doubtless having visions of a soft union job in mind, concluded that the miners working in that territory should be organized into a union. He sent to Pittsburg, Kansas, headquarters of Alexander Howat, head of the Kansas miners' union, and two organizers came to Foster last week to get the union to going. A meeting was called at which the gentlemen ' from Kansas made speeches telling the miners what wonderful things the union would do for them. All went well until one of them in the course of his remarks, it is said, told if the wife or member of the family of a union man should die the union would at once pay the bereaved $500. A man in the back of the room got up and told the organizer that he was all kinds of a liar. That he" had recently come from Pittsburg, where he was a member of the union and that his wife had died while he lived there and while he was a member of the union, but that he had neverseen anything -of the $500. He also added a few re marks not very complimentary about the union and its officers. A row was started and the Kansans deem ing discretion the better part of valor jumped into their car and made a hurried get pway By that time th,e men were mad all through for being so gullible and started a hunt for the man who thought a miners union would be a good thing, but he, too, had pressing business elsewhere and was not to be found. . Foster is still getting along with out a coal miners union. Recent statistics published in Ger many on that country's war losses state that 1,350,000 men were killed. , There are 520,006 war widows, ac cording to the statistics, 1,130,000 war orphans and 560,000 maimed or con sumptives supported mostly by charity.
