Dr. Haven EiucrsoH, liuHlical ailriser of the Veter ans' bureau ut Wa.shington charged in a speech before the Mississippi valley con ference on tuberculosis here, last night that the newly organized veterans bu reau was "hcing made the football of politics" and announced that he had re siKiiod as medical adviser, effective Sep tember 1".

'I In. American L-uvcrunU'iit. zation much nfter tlie fashion of Grand oil the other hand, has from the first uught to make it clear that the United Stales is not enterinz the conference as the champion of anything but interna-1 lional harmony and peace, and that, i ri - j tfar as it is necessary to remove sources of friction and ossible causes ( of war, America is anxious to examine, along with other powers, all such con-j .roversies, whether tney relate 10 Jap anese or (hintse pretentious. Purpose of United States The United States named 'China in the original announcement, In-cause of a conviction th;it no international con lerence could be held on Far Eastern questions without consulting China, ihe immediate reaction in Japan, how ever, to the first stories which linked China with the great powers has been such as to cause the Japanese to point out in their press and otherwise that :he interests ot the conference would be served if the major nations made the rules of the conference, and invited from time to time other countries to explain their views. It so happened that Holland and Bel gium were profoundly disappointed to learn that China had been summoned, whereas Dutch ami Belgian interests in th? Far East seemed io be imxrtant enough to require the presence of com missioners f rom ' the Netherlands 'and lleluium. The United States handled that awkward situation as well as pos sible by pointiiii: out that whenever questions a fleet im: Belgium and Ilol 'and were discussed, representatives from those countries would le asked to .'.'.tend the conference and listen to the proceedings and offer suggestions. In deed, if a convention or protocol is drawn to embodv the conclusion of the Washington conference, it is not un likely that Belgium and Holland will be aivcu an opportunity to become a party Armv of the Republic politics.

The village postofBer was moved La . bor day into the new and convenient ' quarters in the room especially planned bv Mrs. K. t Diitlon for the purpose" in the town hall. Partitions to divide the inner idlice and waiting room have been built by Blood Bros., of hard pine and given a finish which is on an equality with the other woodwork of the building. The inner oftiee is commodious and al lows space for shelves, stove, etc.. for Postmaster O. B. Dauchy's personal use. a- well as ample space for the regular office business. The door opening to the (waiting room is at the north end of the vide veranda which fronts the town halt. The money order windnv faces the door with the post office boxes at right angles facing south. Another jut beyond the line of boxes is u,ed for a package win dow with tloor to the inner" office, in (line facing the .rojul. .A' chair and "shelf for writing i: planned for th waiting room. Mr. Dauchy says he realizes that the lighting of the large room is as yet inad equate but with the expectation of decs trie lights ill the neir future a large outlay for lamps wotild seem unnecessary. to the pact. China in Preferred Position While China is not to be a member ot the main conference, she, neverthe less, will enjoy a preferred position in cr isrlgium ami llollaml ami oilier countries, because, alter all. the loints of contention in the Far Eastern conierenee a licet the territorial integ rity and administrative independence or China. There are those who lielieve that Ja pan will benelit iv the exclusion ot hina from membership in the main conference, because the Japanese will be able through the secret proceedings of the conference to express themselves with resiKHt to China, and there will be no one present troni lima to otter, rei utation or to point out the disadvan tages of he Japanese proposals. On Me othr lui'id. it is contended that the licence of (hina from the meetimr of : l;e prircipals. will place a moral obli gation upon ail tne other powers, in-i luiiinz the United State, to see to it that the interests of China are con-' start'-- safeguarded. No Offense to Chinese The inrirmation that (hina would not tie a party to the main conference was n't veil out at the White House without comment. The Chinese are not c, .'cSed to take oflense at their exclu sion, because the principal object of the conference is limitation of armament. The discussion of Far Eastern question-.', while vcrv important, is after all, i oi-'o'-fninary affair, and when a- agree ment had been reached on Far Eastern nroblcms the conference will turn to a discussion of armies and navies, in whivh. of- course. China stands on a footing with most small nations. It is the purpose of the conference to tifk0? into consideration the interests of oi.-ill nations, but none of them is ex pected to participate in the armament conference.

' ' Service at Church Marked by Pomp and Splendor Shown by High Dignitaries of CJiurch and State Great Funeral Procession to Grave. NAPLES, Sept. 13 A "funeral de luxe" is the way the Xaplrs newspa pers described the burial of Alberto Al- terio, reputed to have ocen one of the chiefs of tlie Camorra in America. He was formerly a Camorra leader in Na ples but fled from here several years ago. He settled in America and is alleged to have amassed a fortune of &3oO,(KKj by bhuk mail. He was assassinated in New York a few weeks back and his !ody brought Kick to Italy by his wife. The funeral was attended by thousands of Neapolitans. The body was borne on the elalorate hearse which , is reserved only for notables, among them of re cent memory, Enrico Caruso. Alterio'n funeral was an event. The religious service in the church was; masked with all th possible pomp and' : sn tH"nv attendant "on - fujralsi' -given to high dignitaries' of church and state. J An orchestra of almost PHJ pieces ac companied the mass which was still! augnnted in impressiveness by a large' cho.r.

Cuite a mimlior of priests officiated at the ceremony. Great Floral Offering. The funeral procession was of great moment. In it, marched practically all of Altcrio's associates in his pr""s-ion. A dozen 1 or more men shouldered a large floral offering which was tarried! in the procession. The design on it was that of a clock which registered ' the hour of half past twelve. The cost of this has Rten announced as 2 .Mm' lire. The coffin also attracted much atten tion. It has been chronicled that it came from America, cost js3,ooo and was engraved in silver. The crowd which followed the body to the grave was a veritable " unending stream of people."
