' " Atlaiitic City bath house ; men are happy over a measure which prohibits the passage through any of the streets of persons over the age of 14 years in bathing robes. 'The new rule prohibiting the passage through the streets of men and women in bathing costume was passed under the guise that to walk the streets in bathing robes Is immodest. The many who oppose the measure ridicule the objection and say . that it is much more modest to robe in the privacy of one's own home than it is to be forced into a small bath house and thrust among a lot of strangers. . There is much, talk' of getting up a monster petition to councils to have the feature reconsidered. , A number of men who are heavily interested-in real estate are foremost in this under taking, claiming, that to deprive peo ple of the .right to wear their bathing costumes to and from their homes win spoil an attractive feature of cottage life. - A" well known lawyer, when asked to express an opinion on th new or dinance, said, that; it could not be en forced, as it was unconstitutional and opposed to the spirit of all good law and reasoning. - ' . "If a bathing suit Is immodest on one of the avenues it is equally- im modest on the beach and in the surf," said he. "Therefore the very men who have worked so hard to have this measure adopted are liable to prosecu tion for hiring and offering to hire im modest dresses, for there is no differ ence in the style of robes worn to.and from the beach by cottagers and those which can be secured at the , bath houses." , , " THE TURK FEARS POSTOFFICE Some of, the great European? na tions have established postofflces of their own in Turkish cities, in which they employ only Europeans, use their own stamps, and . watch their mail bags until they pass beyond the prying eyes of the Turks, savs the Outlook. In Salonica there are nd fewer than five ' postottices-Britlsh. Austrian. French, Servian and Turkish; in Con- staninople," six. , If one wishes to be sure of" his mall,'' he ""must inquire at four of them at least; and if he really Wants to have his letters reach their destination,, A he must send , them through some . postofflce other than Turkish.; For therreason that the au thorities cannot be sure of a complete knowledge of all the conversation that might pass, the telephone has been excluded from the empire; and no Turkish citv is electricallv lisrhtpd bo- cause it is safd, .the . ofiiclals discov ered the word dynamo In the applica tions for 'the necessary contracts, and, dynamo suggesting dynamite, the of ficial Turk- was paralyzed with fear. So all Turkey, is still candle lighted, or at best laip lighted. . Whatever is Turkish in Turkey Is sure to be out of order, disorganized, dirty; whatever is foreign Is,-by contrast, well kept. WILL MEET mi IN OGDEN, UTAH. ; President Roosevelt Praised For Hl Aid In Secwrlmir Favorable Ac tion of Conrre--Jrew Prel 1 dent's Remarks. COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Oct 10. The 1 national irrigation : congress adjourned after electing officers and selecting Ogden, Utah, as the place of next year's meeting. The following ofllcers were unani mously elected: President, Colonel Ed win F. Holmes, Ogden, Utah; first vice president, Governor L. Bradford Prince, Santa Fe, N. M.; second vice president, Anson J. McCune, Denver; third vice president, E. Ny Libby, Clarkston,v Wash.; secretary, Colonel H. B. Ma xson, Reno, Nev. The appointment of a committee, to report next year on . the merger, propo sition and the adoption of a set of reso lutions completed the work , of the con yention. . . The . report of ; the resolutions com mittee was adopted unanimously. ' The resolutions after felicitating the Amer ican people upon the enactment of the national irrigation act says: "The grateful . acknowledgments of this congress are : due to Theodore Roosevelt, :. president . of the United States, for. his invaluable assistance in the cause -of irrigation. His message to congress in December, 1901, marked the beginning of a' new epoch not only in the history of ' the arid west, but also in the history of. the entire; natipn. Without his powerful aid and that of his. administration it would "hot have been possible to secure the "passage of that great act, which whT put into ef fective motion the national 'irrigation policy for which, we have been striving so long. Great as his administration may. be, we believe , that none of . its achievements will redound more to the greatness of our people ; and the glory of our country than will the passage of the ; national . Irrigation act. ' We send him our greetings and give him our as surances of our most sincere respect and admiration." ' ' . : " . ' Resolutions were also passed' recom mending ' the protection and preserva tion of forests and urging the co-operation of national and state governments to this end. - - " " polonel Holmes, .. the newly - elected president, an a rew remarks accepting the oflice said: "I am satisfied that irrigation and forestry are leading questions of the day. We' hardly realize the impor tance of the work in hand. I feel that the work we are doing now will be re corded in history and that the men of this -: congress will have their names handed down to posterity.: for . what they, have done for the advancement of the country." MISS TARBELL'S-BlSTGjRY An Outline of Her Great -Work Sketched In October McClure's. In the October number of McClure's Magazine appears the Introduction to Miss IdaiM. Tarbell's long announced "History of the Standard Oil Co." The first chapter of the history will appear in November. This, not only will be Miss Tarbell's most important work since her "Life of Lincoln," It is also the first piece of historical writing of its kind a dramatic narrative of the most momentous episode in our indus trial development of the last quarter century. As is stated In the introduc tion, Miss Tarbell has chosen thts Standard Oil Co as the typical trust because its organization is the most perfect, its monopoly the securest, and in particular beoause every step of its history can be fully traced by docu mentary evidence of unimpeachable authority. It is because of the great mass of this evidence that Miss Tar bell has been so long in getting her history into its final form. The first paper will deal with the "Birth of the Oil Industry." Miss Tarbell is herself a native, of the oil regions, and in this part of her narrative, as also in her. ac count of the great oil war of 1872, she will write of men and events she has personally known and witnessed.
