believed he had only seen the photo

-Of whom did you get them?"
asked Senator Clapp.

of the Servian delegation, said:
"The choice of the I'nlted States
as mediator would be an excellent
one. The fears iu this connection are
that the distance of the United States
from the scene and Its lack of knowl
edge of the different complex prob
lem* agitating the Balkan peoples
might hamper Its action, while an
European country would find itself
In readier condition, having for years
followed the aspirations of the differ
ent races constituting the Balkan
family.”
Hr. S. Daneff. speaker of the Bui*
giitian parliauieut. pretided today.
The first business of the conference
was the appnlntuicut of secretaries.
It was decided that each delegation
ishould appoint one man to act as sec
retary of the conference on the day
when the chief of the mission to
which he belonged wns In the chair.
This will occur In alphabetical order

wired Senator Aldrich to make an

suggestions to make. I think the
matter Is of conaldurable Importance

where such an appointment would be
desired. If necessary 1 can see you
In New York or 1 can talk to you
over the fone from the headquarters
of the Republican state committee,

Mr. Hearat suggest Mr. Eddy

he rbunged to read "keeping a gamb

not ready to go to trial and wanted

trict attorney objected stating that
the information waa filed on Septem

continued. He declared that the
counsel had made no showing that

sisted the case be set for trial. Mr.
Yeaman then advised the court that
his client had sickness in the fam

go to trial. C. Deardorff stated that
he had no attorney and the court
appointed R. T. Yeaman. Previous
to this Yeaman had suggested that

the dismissal of the ease.

“Trinidad The Town To Tie To”
Our leaders are urged to give the most careful consideration to
every page of this issue of the Chronicle-News which the enterprise and
progressive business methods of our merchants has made possible- In
acknowledging our appreciation of the manner in which our business
men have seen fit to utilize the columns of the C-N in placing their
wares before the public wc reiterate our frequent statement that no
citizen need leave Trinidad or send out of the city for any necessity or
luxury desired. Save this copy of the Chronicle-News, look over the ad
vertisements of the different iocal firms and then know how much better
it is to buy here than in Denver, Pueblo. Kansas City. Chicago or any
other town.
That "Trinidad- the Town to TIE TO" IS such a town is largely due
to the up-to-date business methods of our merchants. The stores of Trin
idad are one of the best reasons for selecting this city as a home. SHOP
