Paris, April 4. President Wilson
and Premiers Lloyd-George, Clemen
ceau and Orlando continued their dis
suasion at President Wilson's resi
dence. Other peace conference or
ganizations also met. All the con
ferences tended to unravel the tang
led issues still standing in the way
of peace.
The meeting proceeded amid an
other wave of apprehension, spread
ing through the conference over lack
of any tangible results after the coun
cil of four labored continuously for
ten days. . - -. - ' '.-'., . " -
This was accompanied . . by well
founded reports that those close in
touch with the council of four show
ing that situation,, while not desper
ate, was at least serious- because of
radical differences on some funda
mentals in the settlement of Ger
many's western,' the Franco-German
and the eastern Polish frontiers.

spirit has been willing to do most
anything to assure French security
short of the stultification of engage
ments made at the time of the armis
tice. , '. -'

Chevrolet Automobile to be Given
Away Free to Holder of Lucky
' Number.
The carnival which has been the
center of s attraction for the past
week, held under the auspices of the
Elk's Club, concludes its stay in the
city today,, after a very successful
six-day run. : : --.
There were the usual attractions
including the Ferris wheel, merry-go-rqund,
the whip, side shows of all
descriptions, the darktown follies and
athlectic show, in which local box
ers and wrestlers participated with
nrach credit to themselves.
One of the main features was the
country store, supervised and run by
members of the local Elks' Lodge.
Articles of various description,
ninging from chickens, ducks and
country , hams to cut glass tableware
were contributed" to the store by
friends from the city and county and
all have found a ready demand.
The carnival will close tonight with
the giving away of a Chevrolet-Six
automobile to the person holding the
lucky number. Thousands of chan
ces have been sold and any one can
be a prospective owner of the car by
paving twenty-five cents, the price
of a ballot. The ballots will be plac
ed in a barrel and well shaken up and
a lucky one drawn by a young lady
carefully blindfolded. '
In spite of the inclement weather
at times, crowds have' flocked daily
to the carnival grounds' on Fourth
Street and today's attendance is ex
pected to be the greatest of the week.

The Saloon Men Decline to Accept a
Refund and All Calculations Are
Upset. ' '.-:-
Although the saloon mer,in Hop
kinsville and Gracey closed promptly
Monday night as agreed last fall, the
Pembroke saloons reopened as usual
Tuesday morning and are still run
ning. 'The Board of Town trustees
accepted the full payment for licen
ses and the salon men are within their
legal rights, it seems. The three
owners, Me urs. - Barger, Dougherty
and Ragsdale, it is understood, have
declined to accept a refund of $125
for the next three months
Conferences have ben' held,' but no
way has yet been found to close the
salopns. as the agreement entered in
to had no force as a legal order. , It
gave the board authority to cancel
licenses issued but -this brings on a
legal question that seems to put .the
"dry" side at a disadvantage. Court
proceeding swould necessarily be
slow and the agreement is without a
penalty for its violation.
The refusal to abide by what was
regarded as a compromise has caused
much feeling and indignation among
the 'prohibitionists.
