ROME. Not. 1. The reports that have
been spread In foreign countries that
the Italian troops at Tripoli have prac
ticed extreme cruelty In the war against
the Turks and Arabs, killing women
and children aged and Infirm and non
combatants, have caused Intense In
dignation throughout Italy.
These reports already have been of
ficially denied, but Premier Glollttl
took occasion again tonight to empha
sise the denial and to make a statement
In behalf of tha Government and Na
tion. "If any reproach la amlsslble." he
said, "It can only be on account of ex
cess of humar.ltarlanlsm. We have, per
haps, through exaggerated scruples,
spared the lives and property of the
enemy, and in so doing have exposed
ourselves to grave risks. This, how
ever, we have been pleased to do. In
proof that we are civilised and humane.
Perbapa what Is the bounty of the
strong may be Judged as weakness.
"Our soldiers trained in the school of
loyallty and accustomed to the upright
ness of the Abysslnlans, who were open
enemies, or steadfast friends, did not
expect that the Arabs, after they had
aworn fealty and received grain and
flour and other concessions, would
treacherously break their oath and turn
their arms against the wounded. Among
those heroic dead many were barbar--ously
killed by the enemy after they
had fallen gravely wounded.
"He that aaserts that the Italian
would offend women and children
shows ignorance of our country and
The acts of treachery were due part
ly to the efforts of Bedouins, about
15,000 of whom migrate at this season
of the year from the Interior to the
coast for the date crop. They formed
a kind of conspiracy with the Turks
and succeeded In persuading the Arabs
who had already declared themselves
our friends to rebel.
"But. indeed, the Arabs were ready
to take up arms against those they
considered weak at any moment. This
Is shown by the fact that many of the
habitations, when set on fire, exploded
like powder magaslnea, ao great were
the quantities of arms and ammuni
tion hidden In them.
"After the betrayal, when the Arabs
had hidden behind trees, walls and
houses In the oasis, shot In the back the
troops courageously fighting the Turks,
our soldiers defended themselves. They
attacked the oasis and routed the
traitors, killing those caught in the act
of firing and taking the others prison
ers. For safety we transported the '
prisoners to Tremltl and Ust lea. Islands,

of the curtailment of their liberty, they

The oasis within 'our llnea, where
the populace had been moved out of

enemy. The trees and walls, and In fact
everything that might afford a shelter

General Caneva made any allusion to
women and children killed. There Is
Instead, proof of unheard of cruelty to
our wounded. Many were barbarously
knifed, being killed while lying wound

Besides the ocular testimony this Is
proved by the fact that while the nor

LAWYERS WILL SCAN

Full Text Is Expected to Be Ready
for .Filing Within Two Weeks,
Closing its meeting last night, after
consideration of the Initiative, refer
endum and recall provisions, the East
Side (People's) Charter Commission
adjourned to meet again tonight, when
Its members hope to complete the pre
liminary work and place the charter
In the hands of a revision committee
composed of lawyers.
"Barring unforeseen delays, saaa
A. E. Clark, chairman, "the charter
should be revised and ready for filing
within two weeks at the least."
The greater part of last night's le
sion was devoted to finishing second
readings on the sections dealing with
taxes. The comnlttee decided to pro
vide for all money derived from taxes,
licenses, etc, to exist as a general fund,
which shall be apportioned among the
different departments of the city on
the basis of an annual estimate from
each of the departments. The purpose
of this provision is to avoid the segre
gation of city funds as provided in the
present charter, and secure more elas
ticity In administering them.
At suggestion of Dr. Harry Lane it
was made mandatory that each year
the city levy a tax not to exceed one
half mill to establish a sinking fund
to retire outstanding bonds, and, up to
the limit thus fixed, - to make levies
sufficient to provide for the redemp
tion of bonds that may fall due in the
H. G. Parsons proposed a section,
which was adopted, providing that the
city should pay for water at meter
rates, where practicable, or where a
meter basis could not be secured,
should pay according to the estimated
amount of water used. The section
provides for an annual tax, to be levied

To Get Rid of Frown
and Squint Wrinkles
(From Household Friend.)
Do you know what your frowning
habtt makes you look likeT Observe
the different expressions due to frowns
in the faces of other people. The
scowl, given by two deep lines be
tween the eyes; the worried look, re
suiting from a furrowed forehead; the
sly expression, induced by squinting
and causing tiny lines to radiate from
the corner of the eye all these, and
more, are the result of frowns.
To obliterate frowning wrinkles
and all others use a wash lotion made
by dissolving an ounce of powdered
saxolite In a nail pint or witcn nazei. i
This immediately tightens the skin, af- I
fectlnfe even the deepest wrinkles and
crow's feet. It "firms up" not only
the akin, but underlying tissue. There's
no better treatment for paunch-like
che-ks and neck. Any druggist can
supply the Ingredients. Adv.
