can military forces from Haiti and
Ban Domingo is being considered.
it was revealed today at the state
department .- v -.
No definite date has been net,
however, it waa said.
One of the , principal causes of
the unsettled conditions has been
Inefficient t electoral laws. It was
said, and these laws are being re
vised. Beoretary Daniels today is
sued a statement on the occupation
of tie Ja land, in answer to Senator
Harding, Republican presidential
candidate, who recently denounced
it t . '
Daniels said he had ordered Ma
jor General Lejenne, commandant
f 'the marine corps, to make an in
spection of both Haiti and San Do
mingo, investigating theroughly
charges against the marine occn
pation and act against anyone vio

Washington, Sept -18. Veterans
of Foreign Wars, at the closing
session of their annual encamp
ment here today, voted down a res
olution disapproving the adoption
of the- prohibition amendment to
the constitution. There -were few
rotes against the rejection. - .
As submitted to the encampment
the resolution neither commended
nor condemned the amendment,
hut objected to its adoption when
many men were absent from the
country 'on war duty.
The veterans also voted against
admitting women to their organ
isation, and 'likewise refused to
admit any resident of this country
who served in the allied armies
during the World war.
m The first meeting in connection
with the coming Community fairl
was held Thursday afternoon, and
was attended by a good sized
crowd. Much enthusiasm was cre
ated and frotai all reports the fair
will not belacking in any way thia
year. Besides many smaller de
tails which were worked out the
exact date was settled upon, which
will be Saturday, Oct 2, with pos
sibly a double-header baseball game
the day before. S. O. Morrow was
elected head of the horse depart
ment, which place was made va
cant by the death of Bunt Lafferty.
Frank Werts was also elected to
fill the vacancy in the machinery
department caused by the absence
of D. F. Keller. One thing settled
upon .at the meeting, ' which will
come as good news to' the ladies
of the community, was that a big
dinner would not be served this
year, but that the large crowd
would be nicely taken care of at I
the dinner hour at five or six large 1
hot lunch stands, which will be
properly scattered over this vil
lage. None will be disappointed re
garding the dinner, because there
will be plenty for all to eat The
exhibits promise to be even larger
than last year.
After waiting all summer,' Bur
gess at last received a car of oil,
and it will probably be applied to
the main road the week alter the
Aledo fair. Owing to the large
amount of travel next week, those
in charge thought It best to wait
until a time when the roads were
not being nsed 'so extensively.-
The dogs made another raid
Sunday night on the sheep of this
locality, tearing to pieces, five "head
of the flock of Ed Hines. ' This
makes, 16 head of sheep killed re
cently in eight raids on the same
road within a mile and a halt The

There was hardly a Burgess vi
cinity family at home Saturday, as
almost everybody was at North
Henderson attending the big' town
ship fair. The North Henderson-
ers are certainly a bunch of boost
ers and their fair was a success in
every way.
Mr. and Mrs. Russell UcFarland
of Aledo visited Sunday with Bur

Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Gladson
visited Saturday and Sunday with

Chester Armstrong of near Little
York spent several days last week
helping his brother, George Arm
strong with his 'fence building.
An announcement which will
come as a surprise to the many
friends here is that of the mar
riage of Roy Morrow of this place'
to Miss Ruth Vertrees of Green
field, 111 which took place Aug. 17.
The happy young couple had plan
ned to keep their marriage a se
cret but as it always happens,
"the cat got out." ' Mr. Morrow is
a promising young farmer of this
locality and served two years with
Battery B overseas. Since return
ing from France he has farmed his
father's place, making his home
there. - Miss Vertrees formerly liv
ed in Monmouth and taught last
year In the Sea ton1 school, later
coming to the Grant Brown school,
at which time the two became ac
quainted. At the close of the
school v year Miss Vertrees moved
with her mother to Greenfield,
where she is now residing.
. Mrs. Charles Wertz and George
Morgan both returned last week
from the Monmouth and Galesburg
hospitals, where they both had
been for some time. George has
almoEt recovered from his opera
tion, and Mrs. Werts is reported to
be feeling much Improved.
Boston, Mass, Sept 18. Gover
nor Cox, after attempting the role
of an idealist has turned to the
coarse methods of ward politics, re
sorting to wilder;, and wilder
charges. Governor : CooUdge, i Re
publican vice , presidential ' candi
date, said today. .. .
' The governor, addressing the Re
publican state convention, said the
Democratic nominee tor the presi
dency was named by convention
in which "idealists had very little
influence." -
"Yet," he added, "after receiving
a baptism of idealism at the White
House, he attempted for a time, the
role of an idealist ' He was to be
the apostle of the "Great and sol
emn referendum.' His address of
acceptance started that way.
"But the success has not been
marked. Soon the methods of ward
politics prevailed. To that eminent
valetudinarian In the White house,
a master of logical expression, cor
rect of style, always dignified, as
he has beheld his exponent resort
ing to coarser and coarser methods,
wilder and wilder charges, the ref
erendum must for him become sol
emn and more solemn."
The Democratic administration
for the last eight years was termed
by Governor Coolidge a "chapter of
accidents," and a "m'rage of false
hopes and false security. He pic
tured the country as "turning with
admiring eye to the matchless fig
ure of ' Washington, portrayed not
as secreting in his pocket an act
relieving him from war powers, his
country had bestowed on him, but
gladly standing before congress
and voluntarily sun-ending those
powers, which belong in time of
' peace only to the people."

to records a mellow quality as lovely as the
