Talk Pretty Straight to Russia London, April 1.—Great Britain has made a formal and official request up on Ruscrta to include in the next pro gram of the next Hague conference, the question of limitation of expenditure on armaments and has notified the pow ers invited to attend the conference of this action. This was done some days ago, and up to the present the foreign office has not been adrietd of any op position to Oreat Britain's proposal. Neither has Great Britain learned the nature of the negotiations ln St. Petersburg between the ambassador« of Germany and Austria and Emperor Nicholas, but It Is believed that the«e exchanges have had to do with the form in which the subject of dis armamant should be Introduced. Threaten to Withdraw. The reports emanating from the con tinent that Great Britain and the United States would withdraw from the conference If their wishes to diacues the limitation of armaments were not complied with and that Germany and Austria would follow a similar course If Busala Included this question In the program, are stigmatized by of ficials of the foreign office as pure in ventions. "That any power would thus break up the conference, which doubtless will render much good to the cause of humanity, because all Its vishee do not meet with favor, is incredible," said a foreign office official today. Great Britain supported by America, Japan and Italy will continue to pres* her point with over confidence in the outcome. : j | j l POUCE CATCH WIRE TAPPERS Cleveland, Ohio, Ajiril 1.—In the ! arrest here of three men and a wo man giving their names as Edward Weiss and Max Morris of New York and Charles Drucker and Claudie Carlson of this city, the police believe they have caught a clique of clever wire tappers wanted in several cities.

HARD CAMPAIGN BY SOCIALISTS Divide States Into Classes and Expound Their Doctrines Milwaukee, Wla., April 1.—vic j tor L Berger, the socialist leader, ■ haa announced the plans of the i national executive board, of which j he is a member, for spreading social ism into the twenty-six states of the j Union where interest is now luke warm. Mr. Berger, who Is one of the most i thoughtful students in the »arty, makes the statement that President Roosevelt had stolen many of his ideas from the socialists. "All this recent agitation and un rest," said Mr. Berger, "and the showing up of how corporations are running things, is making votes for us and swelling our membership. The people are awakening. They are becoming more liberal and beginning to understand social conditions bet ter. Why, look at President Roose velt, his agitations and exposures are helping us immensely. He is paring the way for socialism. Although he Is not of our faith, nevertheless, he is helping us. Every time he shows up the corporations, he makes votes for us. The more he agitates the more we like it. He is convincing the people that we know what we are talking about. Why, he has even stolen some of our ideas. Many classes Created. "The country has been divided into three classes of states as follows: Class 1, New Jersey, Illinois, Wis consin and California. Cflass 2.

Church Will Be Magnificent Mr. Ferris of Chicago, who arranged for a fine new pipe organ for the new M. E. church, declared hat the church would be a surprise to the community. It is necessary for him to carefully examine the blue prints and specifica tions of all church buildings in which they expect to place an organ, and having such a large field to work In, all over the United States, and seeing ■* many plans and so many churches, his word will be especially assuring. Mr. Ferris declared that the church Lewiston is to have will compare not only favorably with any in the north west, but will surpass most of them in beauty of design and general arrange ment*. Mr. McNutt of the Ford Brothers Art Glass company of Minneapolis, expressed himself in about the same terms last week. Organ Has 2,400 Stop*. The great enterprise, „the building of this church, has been successfully launched with care and foresight, to see Lewiston take the lead this With encouragement by those who de this great edifice can be dedicated free from incumbrance, which will be a great triumph, practically unknown in this new western land. In fact It will be the first big church, so Rev. Euster says, ever erected and paid for before completion, In this northwestern seo tlon. The organ committee, of which H. W. Newton Is chairman, made a very fine bargain in a magnificent pipe organ with some 2,400 pipes and 40 stop4 It will have other feature* which Mr. Newton insisted on before the comittee would accept the organ.

NEW RATES ARE EFFECTIVE TODAY Freight Charges Advanced From 5 to 15 Per Cent by Railroads Special to Evening Teller. PITTSBURG, Pa„ April 1.—The new coal freight rates recently announced by the trunk line railroads, an advance of from 6 to 10 per cent, over the old schedule, went Into effect today. The coal companies in Maryland, Vir ginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Ohio are affected. Increased cost of operation Is given by the railroads as the reason for the advance in rates. A slight addition to the price of coal will probably result from the advance In railroad rates. Grain Raton Advanced. Special to Evening Teller. CHICAGO, 111., April 1.--Increased rates on grain and grain products from Chicago to the seaboard were put Into effect by the railroads today. The new rates are from 17% o 19 cents. While the Increased cost of opera tion Is given by the railroads as the reason for the Increase in rates it is generally believed that the action they have taken Is meant as a counter blow for the adverse railroad legislation re cently passed In so many states. It Is believed furthermore that this Increase Is but a forerunner of a gen eral advance In rates to be made by the roads throughout the entire coun try. Protest Is Entered. Special to Evening Teller. KANSAS CITY, Mo., April 1.—The freight rate on grain shipments from the Missouri river and points west to Mississippi river points, Chicago, Min neapolis, Memphis and Little Rock, was advanced 1% cents a 100 pounds. The board of trade of this city has protested against the Increase and the matter probably will be taken before the interstate commerce commission. DECORATING FOR B. P. 0. ELKS Philadelphia Preparing to Beautify for July Convention Special to Evening Teller. PHILADELPHIA, Pa., April 1.—Not since the great Centennial exposition in 1876 have the business men of Philadelphia made such elaborate preparations for decorating their estab lishments as are now under way for the convention and reunion of the Elks which is to be held here during the week beginning July 15th next. Not only will the merchants and thousands of people in the principal residential sections aid in beautifying the city for that occasion, but the au thorities, It is expected, will take offi cial cognizance of the convention and expend thousands of dollars in decor ating and illuminating the "public buildings"—the largest and costliest municipal structure in the world. The electrical display on this one building will be worth traveling miles to see. In adltion the committee Is planning for numerous novel effects in the mat ter of evening and daylight decorations and the Court of Honor which will be erected for a distance of almost half a mile on Broad street promises to be the most magnificent piece of artistic work ever attempted on a public high way. BIG SPECTACULAR PRODUCTION C. B. Hanford to Be Seen in "Juliua Caesar" Next Monday Night. The tourist In Italy Invariably pauses with reverential reluctance on the ruins of ancient Rome, as they stand unearthed in their marble mag nificence. Fragmentary and Incom plete. they are still majestic remind ers of a time of historical splendor, such as the world may never see again. In a play such as "Julius Caesar," which Charles B. Hanford will present at the Temple theater on Monday bight, April 8, It becomes the function of the producer not only to restore these ruins to the modern eye, but to re-people their streets and palaces. The task Is one whose fascinations have Influenced many of the world's greatest players. It Is not strange that Charles B. Hanford, who this season undertakes It, since It was the role of "Marc An tony" which at the outset of his career brought him fame as a representative American actor. Century Printing Co.
