(Contlneed From race One.)
IKES IULD FORFEIT
Suit was filed in the county court
Monday afternoon against S. T. Jones
for forfeiture of his saloon "cense for
alleged violation of the liquor law.
The defendant is alleged to have sold
liquor on Sunday. His place of busi
ness is on San Francisco street.
E.-.n at the seventeenth annual session
or the American Mining congress at
1 am well aware of the Important
ran played by your great organization
'n Hie creation of our bureau of "lines
.infl am sure that the good work of that
I menu In attempting better to safe-
u irrt the lives of the two million men
, lp'ed m the hazardous mining and
n tallurgical industries will continue
ty redound to vour credit, as well as to
the credit or the bureau Itself It will
al-na.K be a tribute to your foresight
nd ererpy that this new federal or
ganization. In the short period of Its
. iistence, with the kindly cooperation
i r slate and their agencies, has been
itile by persistent and Intelligent ef
fort to turn an Isolated local move
n ent for greater safety Into a great
t uicnal movement lor -aieiy rirti
.i' i has already gone beyond the min
ing industry into every Industry of the
country. I venture to say that tfiou-
nids of lives have been saved by that
movement and that many thousands
i.me will be saved in the future.
Still Vigorous 'Work Needed.
' Gratifying as the results Of this llfe
f inr campaign have been, however,
line is still vigorous work for your
.ingress to do. I am informed that,
inline the last year, more than three
thousand men were killed and one hun
'ied thousand injured in the mining
and metallurgical industries of the
country. At the same time, those in
authority tell me that, from their ob
servation and experience, one half or
such deaths and three fourths of such
Injuries may be regarded as easily pre
ventable. ... , .
"I suggest tnis siiukuu.. -"-:
portunity for further endeavor on i J our
part to cut down this excessive toll
Sf death and of Injury. I can assure
jou of the fullest cooperation of all
the proper governmental agencies also
of my earnest desire for your actie
and continued assistance. -.
"There is one other PJob.lem,co"ni;th
ed with the mining Industry In which
the federal government is vitally Inter,
ested. and that Is proper o0,n8e"?"
and proper use of the mineral resources
of the nation. I realize that ou. too.
are interested in uiw i uu.. -- -wish
merely to call It to your attention
because of its fundamental Importance
to the present and future prosperity of
the nation. I am happy to say that the
profligacy of the past in the use or.
these resources is not being continued,
on so large a scale. There is, how
ever, great opportunity r "" "I
form along these lines and in this your
organization can be of Invaluable ser
vice. Sincerely yours,

President Is Not Averse to
Army-Navy Investigation ;
Bills Are Introduced.
Washington, D. C, Dec. 8. President
Wilson told callers today he favored
the disclosure of all facts connected
with the preparedness of the United
States for national defence and be
lieved that, while the subject should ue
discussed as fully as possible, the whole
question hinged on the method of In
vestigation. The commission plan pro
posed by representative Gardner he dis
approved. The president said he had no special
knowledge of the existence of any loby
for stirring up military discussion at
this time, but he intimated he believed'
there was such an organized effort.
Senator Lodge introduced in the sen
ate a resolution similar to the Gardner
measure pending In the house and
asked that it He on the table until to
day. It would provide for a "national
security commission," to be composed

Skin Easily Removed
Since brown or yellow, over-red or
blotchy complexions are decidedly "not the
fashion, I cannot understand why so many
continue to wear them. Surely every
woman has heard of rnercolized wax. Ihls
I know from my own and others' exper
iences will positively banish every unsight
ly tint The wax really takes off a bad
complexion. It gradually, harmlessly, ab
sorbs the thin layer of surface skin with all
its defects, as chaps, Her spots, pimples,
freckles, blackheads. Just as gradually the
discarded skin is replaced by the clear,
white, youthful ekln underneath. Mercol
Ired wax. procurable at any drugstore, is
applied nightly like cold cream and erased
mornings with warm water. One ounce
will produce the loveliest girlish complex
Ion in less than a fortnight.
I can't understand either wny folks will
be bothered with wrinkles, since the famous
saxollte formula has become public prop
erty. One ounce of powdered saxolife dis
solved in a half-pint witch hazel, makes a
wash lotion that will quickly efface every

some of these will have to be trans
ferred to the other courts because of
the lack of time to try them. J
