PrPang to ask the prince of .TOonaro w close Monte Carlo, the prgreatest gamhllnr resort the world a has ey' known. That the pontiff f' plans this step in a great crusade . against immorality throughout the world has just become known. Diplomatic relations have been re newed between the Vatican and the little principality of Monaco after an Interruption of eight years and M. Defontarce has arrived here with his credentials to represent the prince of Monaco at me Holy see. Vatican circles regard the resump tion of diplomatic relations with the principality of Monaco as a develop ment of the greatest importance de spite the fact that the principality consists of only eight square miles of territory, containing the casino, some luxurious hotels, a park and the prince's palace. , Pop Benedict XV has long been anxious to do away with gambling at Mont Carlo, but he could not approach th prince of Monaco di rectly so long as relations between th Vatican and the principality were broken. The pontiff holds that the gambling at Mont Caro is a source of immorality to both men and wom en and an appalling waste of money and human life. There is little like lihood, however, that the pontiffs re. Quest will meet with success, no mat ter how urgent it may be made. Even among officials close to the Vatican no hope is held out that the great gambling resort will be closed. Th original trouble between the Vatican and the principality of Mo naco arose during the life of Fop. Plus X Meet To Discuss .

The caucus of Democratic menf bers of the next state house of rep resentatives, held ln Nashville, last week, developed four candidates for speaker of the house. These candi dates seem to be making the race on their own hook, without any defi nite organisation behind them. The candidates are A. L. Todd, of Rutherford; Grover Keaton, of Gib son; Hays Clark, of Hamilton, and S. R. Bratton, of Obion. They were all present at the caucus and were working hard ln their own interests. Candidates for state offices were also on hand. Four candidates have en tered the field for secretary of state. They are James M. Cox. of Carthage; Frank Avent, of Davidson; Lon Mc Farland, of Wilson, and E. N. Has ton, of Van Buren. , The caucus agreed to attend a Democratic gathering of house mem bers to be held at the state capitol on the morning of Jan. 3. LAter, it was agreed to caucus with the Dem ocratic senators to nominate candi dates for state offices to be elected by th legislature. The solidarity of the Democratic members-elect to the legislature seems to preclude any chance which the Republicans may have had, or thought they had, to step in and take charge of the legislature through the fusion of the Republi cans with some . of the Democratlo members. The Democrats have a comfortable majority In both houses and their organization means that the legislative department of the state is to remain safely in the hands oi tn democrats. The race for speaker of the sen ate is developing into a wide-open affair with no one candidate having an advantage sufficient to call his chances even approximately certain. There are, however, indications of accruing support to Lots Bejach, which makes his friends confident that he will land the plum. HOLD YOUTH FOR KILLING TWO BOYS GAFFNET, g. C. Nov. 22.
