Mr. Elliott is in receipt of a lot -

us great pleasure to inform you."
After the effusive and grandelo

been disposed of, the desire for in-
formation is broached and dis-
posed of us follows:
"Seeing the wonderful progress
j your city has made, we do not hes-
itate to conn- to you for assistance.
We believe you are of generous
people and you will not but answer
our call. So allow us to enumerate
the printing matter that we need."
Following the above, the writer
mentions the copies and documents
that he desires, and closes with:
"We are aware of this great

If Arbuckle were a nervous man
he would be worrying about two
things; he has lost 25 pounds in
weight, and he owes Uncle Sam
$60,000 for income tax. He joked
about his plight with newspaper-I
men here, and surprised the re- |
porters by refusing to touch liquor.

certain party up in my room, and

The rotund comedian still stout-
ly maintains his innocence of any
responsibility for the death of Vir-
ginia Rappe. He was acquitted by
ihe jury, and believes lie will be
by the movie producers in time.
It was aboard ship that Ar-
buckle's own private view of his
banishment by Will Hays was that
the czar of the movies sought to
make a hit with the reform ele-
ment, and to make the public think
he was sincere. Arbuckle will be
allowed to stage a comeback when
his alfair and trial have been for-
potton. he intimates from a recent
letter from Hays.
Rut for the present. Arbuckle
stands staunchly by Hays' decree,
lie would notnllow newsreel movie
cameramen to photograph him
here. It is said that he has de-
clined offers from independent pro-
ducers to make his comedies in de-
fiance of Hays' edict.
