fairs committee, has Introduced a
meaaura In the senate to provide for
an equitable dlatribution of the cap
tured war materials and Representa
tive Kahn. chairman of the house mili
tary commute has made a favorable
report to the house on a similar meas
ure. In re-lntroduclnr the bill a (rain
a few days aero Chairman Kahn as
sorted be Intended to tret right behind
It arid secure K passaire promptly.
Both chairmen hate expressed their
belief that this legislation on which
no final action was obtained laat ses
sion will be passed before the present
session is far under way.
There appear to be noobertacleaj In
the way of the measure. The depart
ment, wishing to dispose of the great
stores of captured war materials, fav
ors paafage of the bill, and, the de
mand made upon' tho senators and
representatives from almost every
community -in the country for parts of
the former German war equipment as
sures speedy approval of the bill when
It is started on its way.
The Florida senators and represent
atives have introduced several hun
dred bills providing for donation of
former German cannon and fleldpleces
to the cities, towns and counties of the
state. , -
The Wadsworth-Kahn bill, now be
fore congress directs the secretary of
war to apportion and distribute the
captured war materials among the
states In corresponding ratio as the
number of men contributed by each
state bears to the v total number of men
who served In the American army.
The army, has on hand for distribu
tion to the states after retaining .suf
ficient for training and experimental
purposes about 1400 guns and howit
sers captured, from the Gjprmans; 700
trench mortars, 70jp0fc itfHes. 10,000
machine guns; ffctyonets. and
many thousands of canteens, grenade
throwers, helmets, mess kits, knap
sacks, spurs and other materials.
Under the apportionment provided
In the Wadsworth-Kahn bill Florida
will get four 75-mlllmeter guns; four
105 -mm. guns; four 15-mm. guns; one
JlO-mm. gun; six trench . mortars of
various calibre; 621 rifles; 89 machine
guns; 435 bayonets; 82 canteens, as

mets, assorted, and various other tro
phies. The Wadsworth-Kahn bill provides
that the materials alloted to the states
shall be distributed In the states
through the senators and representa
tives in congress. After passage of
the bill It Is expected the senators and
representatives of each state will meet
and work out plans for fairly dis
tributing the captured war materials
among the cities, towns, counties, so
cieties and organizations that have
asked for them.
As the captured war materials on
hand, especially big guns, are not suf
ficient to meet the demand even In a
mall degree,' spirited contests are cer
tain to arise over distribution of the
trophies In the states.

IN SPITE OF WEATHER
KATCHA-KOO DRAWS
Second Performance Filled Pastime
Theatre to Overflowing.
With a packed house of eager theat
rical fans, Katcha-Koo, an Oriental
American fantastique composed of
local talent, now being staged at the
Pastime theatre, under the .auspices
of Community Service, blazed forth
Tuesday night in a whirl of laughter
and gaity, marking the second per
formance of its presentment.
Although a large ciowd attended the
opening performance Monday night,
an even greater number were seated
long before the curtain at the second
showing.
Throughout the entire show the per
formers were af their best and con
tinual encores from the audience fol
lowing specialty musical numbers and
choruses sounded the "key-note of sat
isfaction and approval.
A scene in the Maharajaha's private
temple of Buddah, at Rasputin, India
reveled out with a mass of local color
in the first act. Dancing girls, nov
elty song hits following excellently in
the train of the plot, kept the audience
in a state of ultra-enthusiasm and
laughter.
Charming Miss Norma Holt, played
her part enchantingly. Exquisitely
vlvlaclous in her manner, she proved
almost a dream In her characterization
of the winsome American lass, and
her sister Dolly, portrayed ' by Miss
Clara Frenkel, was Indeed bewitching
in her musical numbers, assisted by
Gerald Quina as Dick Horton.
No one witnessing the play . could
fall to enjoy every minute of a scene
that beheld Miss Emily Lamont, who
displayed gracious art in her interpre
tatlon of Soljah, the widow of the
wizard, and In her eccentric specialties.
Mrs. I. B. Hilson. in the role of Ur
banah, a priestess of the Budda tem
ple, acted her part well.
John Frenkel, as Katcha-Koo, a holy
fakir, proved a scream. His , clever
ness throughout the preformance was
excellent and he truly displayed mas
culine ingenuity in the art of wooing,
and showed remarkable composture in
hla association with tbe Maharajah's
winsome wives while in the presence
of His Excellency.
B. C. Moore and Gerald Quina, as
Harry Bradstone and Dick Horton, a
couple of collectors of antiques, showed
their love making nature in almost
reality and finally showed much cun
nlng in disarming the love fiend
Katcha-Koo of his flirting supremacy.
H. I. Seaburg, the dangerous Ma
harajah, was entirely to lenient with
the "gentlemen friend" who associated
with his bevy of better halves. Other
wise he carried out his role well.
The second and last act, a scene at
the American estate of Mrs. Chattla
Gaddins, in New York, brought the
merriment to a delightful end and the
restoration of the Madam Chattle's
husband who turned out to be no other
than the lady-loving fakir, who had
posed as Katcha-Koo. Isabella Ingra
ham as Chattle, Impressed every one
with being afflicted with bad eyes, in
asmuch as she failed to recognize her
husband in his simple disguise.
The combination chorus concluding
the show , was carried out well, and
represented a host of nations each
rendering a musical number deslgnat
Ing their country. The grand finale,
featuring Liberty Aflame, was decld
edly Interesting and presented two
hits, in Little Misses Marjorie Yonge
and Emma Elebash, representing mid
get ballet dancers. The entire show
was truly an enjoyable one and with
its veritable flower garden of gaily
costumed pretty girls, catchy songs
and wholesome humor, a large and ap
nreciatlve audience, all that can be
said. It was a success.'
Another performance will be given
tonight.
PALATKA. TOO.
WANTS CAPITAL
TALLAHASSEE. April 26. "If there
is to be any serious talk of capitol re
moval, Palatka will be a serious con
tender for the honor of being the next
capitol of Florida." said Senator W. A.
Russell, of that beautiful city on the
St. Johns.
"We shall be able to show that we
are very much nearer the center of the
state, both as regards, population, in
dustry, taxable resources and avail
ability, than any other city that has
ben or can be mentioned. We have
six railroads instead of two which is
all that Orlando can boast, and I have
the utmost fondness for the fine Or
ange county town which ia making
such a play right now to put the skids
under the hopes and boast of Talla
hassee. .
"If it comes, to a matter of bidding
Palatka will do all that any other city
in the state will. It will offer a beau
tiful site on the banks of the St. Johns
river, an arm of the sea to our city,
and will put up buildings or meet any
offer that may be made by any other
city.
"No city can say that rt is entitled
to the capitol but Palatka can meet
any argument made by any other city
In the state when the availability of
that city as the capital of Florida is
under consideration. Some of the ar
guments made by other cities apply
with greater force to Palatka than to
tho cities making them.
"Palatka is in the field and. if the
matter comes to vote here, I shall do
my utmost to see that her claims are
considered."
MARSTON POST TO

TO INCREASE PAY
CIRCUIT JUDGES
Bill Introduced in Senate Raises Sala
ries to $5,000 a Year.
(By JOHN C. TRICE)
TALLAHASSEE, April 26. Circuit
court judges will have $5000 a year
Instead of $4300 as at present if the
bill considered in the senate Tuesday
afternoon becomes law. The bill as
introduced by Senator Calkins pro
posed a salary of $6000, but the com
mittee cut this to $5000. Senator
Lindsay tried to mlake further cut to
$4500 but failed. His effort to make
the raise effective Jan. 1, 1921 alao
failed.
In executive session the senate con
sidered the snspension of L L Meigs
of Duval county, member, of the coun
ty commissioners, by Governor Catts,
and refused to consent to the suspen
sion, holding .that It was unjustified.
An unfavorable report on the Sin
gletary bill allowing the Internal im
provement board to sell the Everglades
has been made by the drainage com
mittee. The senate ordered 200 printed cop
ies of the hill introduced by Senator
Lindsay in reference to riparian
rights. It is probable that the Butler
bill will be printed as soon as it Is
out of the committee so the two may
be considered Jointly.
The senate sustained the veto of the
bill presented two years ago by Sena
tor Cash, allowing the board of edu
cation to contract for school books un
der which It waw held that books
migni nave Deen Kept uniform for a
period of time.
The vote was 28 to 1. Senator John
son announcing Just before the vote
was taken that he saw no reason why
the bill should become a law.
Among the bills introduced Tuesday
were two by Senator Campbell, one
allowing the Internal Improvement
board to trade lands with, private
ownership, with the Intent of round
ing out the state or private holdings,
n3 the other allowing the board to
sell or lease oil, phosphate or mineral
rights on state lands.
Senator Stoke pnt in a bin limiting
coroners fees in counties of 45.000 peo
ple which means Escambia, Hillsbor
ough and Duval. It fixes the fees for
viewing a body at $3, and for holding
an Inquest at $5. He said the sena
tors affected were in accord with the
bill which therefore went to the local
bill calendar.
AUTO LICENSES
MUST BE PAID
i .
Sheriff A. Cory Ellis has ' received
orders from Governor Hardee to make
prompt arrests of all persons who
have failed to procure this year's li
cense tags for their automobiles.
The letter, a copy of which was re
ceived hy the sheriff is in answer to a
letter from State Comptroller Amos,
advising that complaint had been
made that fully 10 per cent of the au
tomobiles and trucks are not yet reg-
istered.
The letter of Mr. Amos to the gov
ernor states:
"Many complaints have been made
to me verbally lately by persons visit
ing Tallahassee that fully 10 per cent
of the automobiles and trucks
throughout the state have not yet been
registered.
The letter of Governor Hardee to the
sheriff follows:
"I hand you herewith copy of a let
ter which I have Just received from
the comptroller regarding the non
payment of automobile licenses. This
law should be rigidly enforced and I
am calling upon every sheriff within
the state to make prompt arrests of
every individual who has not com
plied with the law. A few arrests will
have the effect of bringing about the
desired result, as those who are dis
posed to violate tbe law will see that
the state means bustnss.
'W11 you kindly acknowledge re
ceipt of this, together with such sug
gestions as may occur to you?"

claims for your patronage :
' 1. Complete, new stock, direct from the factory, with
no "WAR COSTS" in it. -
2. Of even greater importance that the matter of coat
is the fact that there are no cheap war-time substitutes in
the grinding and mixing of these paints.
3. By specializing in this line, I can give you PAINT
