New York, N. Y.—An appeal to
Gov. Dix for another primary in New
York city Is to be made by tlie Jtoos*-
volt leaders. Ex-Judge Charles H.
Duel), chairman of the Roosevelt citi-
zens committee, and Chairman Koe-
nig of Hie Republican county commit-
tee, are authority for that statement.
Delegates to the Republican na-
tional convention favoring the nomi-
nation of Roosevelt were defeated in
every district where they opposed
candidates designated by the regular
Republican organization and claimed
by the followers of President Taft.
The Taft campaign nuiiiageFs said
at least Si! of New York’s HO dele-
gates would go to Chicago favoring
the president’s renomination. That
estimate included the four delegates-
at-largo to be chosen at the state
convention April 0. The remaining
1 seven delegates were designated by
the regular district organization, but
conceded to Col. Roosevelt.
Col. Roosevelt lost the only two
fights his supporters made "up-state”
and the returns from the La contested
districts in New York city and Long
Island gave his opponents a plurality
averaging more than 2 to 1.
A new primary in New York ciiy,
it is estimated, would cost something
like $150,000, since ballots costing
$70,000 would have to be reprinted

San Diego, California.—Charging
the police with having permitted
vigilantes to take 16 prisoners from
the city jail at night and drive them
out of town, attorneys for the Indus-
trial Workers of the World have de-
manded an investigation. It is said
in a letter to the chief of police that
the prisoners were taken to the city
limits, where they were beaten and
ordered never to return to San Diego.
Rumors of a vigilance committee's
working with the knowledge of tne
police have been in circulation, but
nothing definite has been learned. The
police deny the charge.
Cleveland, Ohio.—Peace by agree-
ment was declared in the bituminous
coal fields. Immediately afterward
an order was issued by the anthracite
strike committee tharthe 173,000 min-
ers in those fields suspend work

wired George Baer at Philadelphia
that he had a proposition to make re-

Word was received back from Mr.
Baer that he would be glad to grant

agreement reached here or keep the
miners from earning as much as they
By the agreement the miners will re-
ceive an increase of five cents a ton
for screened coal, 3 cents for mine
run, 5.5 per cent for day laborers and

other demands are waived. The addi-
tional rates demanded by the Illinois
miners in their convention will be
dropped. The settlement of the peace
terms is credited to the work of the
Illinois operators and miners.
The operators of the states not rep-
resented will accept the settlement
without question. There will be a
suspension in the bituminous fields

“ECZEMA ITCHED SO BADLY
I COULDN’T STAND IT.”
“I suffered with eczema on my neck
for about six months, beginning by lit-
tle pimples breaking out. I kept
scratching till the blood came. It kept
getting worse, I couldn’t sleep nights
any more. It kept Itching for about a
month, then I went to a doctor and
got some liquid to take. It seemed
as if I was going to get better. The
itching stopped for about three days,
but when it started again, was even
worse than before. The eczema Itched
so badly I couldn’t stand It any mor?.
"I went to a doctor and he gave me
some medicine, but didn’t do any good.
We have been having Cutlcura Rem-
edies in the house, so I decided to try
them. I had been using Cutlcura
Soap, so I got me a box of Cutlcura
Ointment, and washed off the affected
part with Cutlcura Soap three times a
day, and then put the Cutlcura Oint-
ment on. The first day I put it on, It
relieved me of Itching so I could sleep
all that night. It took about a week,
then I could see the scab come off. I
kept the treatment up for three weeks,
and my eczema was cured.
“.My brother got his face burned
with gun powder, and he used Cutlcura
Soap and Ointment. The people all
thought he would have scars, but you
can’t see that he ever had his face
burned. It was simply awful to look
at before the Cutlcura Remedies
(Soap and Ointment) cured It.”

rest City, Ark., Oct. 16, 1910. Although
Cuticura Soap and Ointment are sold
by druggists and dealers everywhere,
