LONG Partnership In Clothing Busi ness Conies to End Washington, Murcii 5. Woodrow Wilson, with the major part of the world at war and America poised on The stores of Celina huve splendid Its vergo, consecrated his second In- mocks of the new spring styles ready, uuguratlon as President of the United States today with a last message of hope for peace. Standing In the shadows of the na tion's capltol with his face turned to ward tl'e Eastern war-seared skies, the President renewed his oath al leglance to the constitution, praying to God that he might be given wis dom and prudence to do his duty In the true spirit of the American peo pie. While trumpets blared and mar tial accouterments rattled prophet! cally about him, the President Pictur ed the deep wrongs the United States patiently bad borne In the conflict of other peoples without wishing to wrong: or injure in return. Assert ing that the tragedies of another con tinent had removed provincialism and made Americans citizens of the world and that tbe principles "of this repub lic should be applied to a liberation of mankind, he absolutely voiced a determination that America, standing "firm in armed neutrality," must demonstrate her claim to a "mini mum of right and freedom of action in world affairs. Peculiar interest and significance, la the light of his rebuke last night to Senators who preven the armed neutrality tached to the President's assertion on this point. Even more interest and concern were aroused when be add td: "We may be drawn on by clrcum stances, not by our own purpose or The ladles will find the dry goods and millinery stores full of Interesting new things. In the clothing stores tbe men or the family will see the new styles. The shoe stores have r.plendld assortments ready. The Automobile men want you to see the new cars.

But in this case the "on again" ends the story, and "he who laughs last laughs best." At least so sayeth the scribe a mile off the east shore Jackson, Mich., Citizen Press Qulta a shocking affair came to light Saturday morning with the death of Timothy Grimm, the young r.ian reported as Tim Graham, Injur ed In a fall from a street car near the corner of Cooper and North streets Filday evening. He died in the cell block at' police headquarters S.iiturday about 9:30 a. m., and a post mortem disclosed two fractures of the skull, one extending from a point near tho fore-head to the back side of the head, and another extending crosswise at the back of the beat). This injury was declared to be the cause of deulb. When the man was brought to the police station at 6:30 Friday night he was able to stand, but appeared to be considerably dazed. Lieut. Beban understood from him that his name was Graham, but couldn't get any in formation from him as to his first name. Patrolmen Wilson and Hall, who bad brought him there in the police patrol searched him and found El cents in money on him. The lieu tenant tried to get City Physician Dengler over the telephone, but was unable to locate him. An inspector for the street car company called Dr. Edwards, the company sergeon and he responded within a few minutes. PRAISE Instead of a Knock Due Sena tor George Holl Joe Meyer Stop Down and Out- Concern Will lie Known as W. II. BreU & Son " Daily Atuudurd Evidently Doean't Recognize u Friend of County When It Sees One State .Senator George Holl, of Aug- lii'ze county, tailed us up yesterday noon, lo portent against the uncalled lor attack upon himself by the Daily Standard of this city because of the report published in the Cincinnati En qulrer of the 5th Inst., to the effect that the conference committee of the Legislature had again changed the name of the reservoir from Grand Lake to Luke St. Ma'ys. There as been much unnecessary raillery between the Standard and Editor Sullivan of the St. Marys Leader, over naming the reservoir, and Senator Holl became the goat of these jeits. The Standard went off half-cocked Tuesday in an unwarrant ed assault upon the Senator and a timid slap at Representative Huber. Senator Holl is chairman of the Conference committee and heartily About 9:30 he called to see the fel- sanctioned the proposition, when the low m?ain hut didn't ronsfMer him in Junior editor or ine Democrat ac ted passage of cause the name seemed more pleas- (;ay morning he was discovered crawl bill, were at- lDB" Jldn't Prove up, and its still ng around the cell block attired in nsHertlnn on "Celina-on-Crand Lake." only his underclothes and with shoes LONG-DISPUTED end stockings off.

They laid a blanket on the floor, put Highest Court for a Final Decision ture. To be indifferent to the influ ence of the war upon America, or in dependent of It, he said, was imposs ible, and he was firm in the conviction that the part this country wished to play in the vital turmoil was the part of those "who mean to vindicate and rortify peace." These were the dominant thoughts of the President as he addressed the cheering multitude In the broad plaza of the capitol grounds. In the as semblage before him American citi zens of all nations had sung "Ameri ca" with a mighty voice while wait ing lot his appearance on tbe inau gural stand. And in the procession of thft "unsalted sea." The story sent out to the effect that uch condition as to have him remov- companiert by Representative Huber the name of Grand Lake had been d t th hnsnital Ir wa miKnecterl broached the matter to him some changed back to Lake St. Marys, "be- tiie man had been drinking. Satur- weekB ago. He at once noted the cnange on he original bill, making it read Grand Reservoir. The matter was taken r efore Senatorp Berry, Apple, Gilmora and several other who were in the Senate chamber at the time and they also sanctioned the change, after being informed of conditions and the location of the big pond. Representative Wildermuth, author of tUe bili, Representative Shay and others also felt kindly to the change. Senator Holl said no move was made to alter the name and that no body of St. Marys citizens had ap proached him on the matter as stated in the Standard. The Senator has also backed sev eral Mercer county applicants for ap pointment against Auglaize county parties, feeling, as he said, that he v presented not only his own county, but the entire Senatorial district. We owe tho much discussed change in name from Lake St. Marys to Grand Lake to Senator Holl. Let's gracious ly accord hirr. thanks for this and other favors.
