With tha dawn of the last full week
rf the political campaign that- haa
torn thin city Into bitter factions, both
sides hare (Ivrn over the attempt td
convince anybody of the merits of
th!r c'a!mr'nd are now concentrat

comlnn of a clear and pleasant elec
tion nay may mean an overwhelming
victory for Alexander.
As Illustrative of the extent t' which
the struaale has tor i friends asunder,
tl Frt.'.av Mornlnx t ;.:! and the Khell
Club, both mraanlr.-tiors of women,
are rent In twain ever the recent and
most prominent of the Socialist Im
portations from the Hast. Charlotte

With the comlna- of the bipr vote for
Marrinian. the Socialist Mayoralty
eanrtKUte at the primary, the existence
of that sr'-ech on the programme of
the club assumed dreadful proportions
and the members of the programme
committee at once beaao to aucgeit to
Mrs. tilliman tnat she eliminate any
local features ft m her address. This,
after some talk, the speaker aprreed
to, much to th char:n of a larsre
r ei.l.nt In the club. As a result there
Is now war In the ranks of the clubs.
With th pislns; of the campalan
clays a change has come over the
slrlt of the Socialist dreams. From
promising: everything to a more sub-
n-ird and mo.lest attitude, was an easy
dror. but the recently published as
ie;t:nn by a mcmher of Harrlman'a
campiiun committee that the "Intro
duction of thousands of Kastern dol
lars Kj.s ma.le thinas black for our
man.'" was an even greater drop.
OtMMsra t M r ector. .
Another fartor In the flht aaalnst
.arr:nan to be taken up by "the Alei
ander forces In the last few days has
been that candidate's connection with
th famous Mi-.Namara case. under
trial before Judge llordwell. Before
the Women's 1'ronresslve League yes-t-rosy
Attorney liockweller asserted,
and loudly cheered In the state
ment, that ttiVrlman had no rltfht to
run for orilce while actlna: as a mem
ber of the McNamara defense.
"If Harrlman was elected Mayor."
iHKrkweller explained to the women,
he would have the police and the
Socialist City Council back of anything
that he deemed expedient. We have
no right l prejudice this tremendously
Important trial by making witnesses
who are brought from a distance feel
that It might happen ti.-t they would
not be afforded every protection."
Mill another and even more Im
portant blow to Harrlman s candidacy
was the failure of capitalists. Kast or
West, to bid for the Issue of t:s0.000
bonda for school purposes. For the
first time In the history of the city
the city offered bonds for sale and
not a bidder came forward.
The need for school additions and
Improvements la urgent and the fail
ure of the bond Issue was a severe
blow. The Good Government forces
naturally were not slow In pointing out
what they assert was connection be
tween that failure and the thrust of
Socialism laborlxed In the city.

A feature which has made IDEAL
Boilers so popular is their large fuel
holding fire-pots, and which are cor
rugated so that just the right volume
of air is admitted to be burned with the fuel to produce the highest possible
percentage of heat from every ounce of fuel consumed. This scientifically
proportioned, correct ratio of air to fuel largely accounts for their remark
able heating qualities just as air-mixing mantles yield highest illumi
nating power. It is this fuel-saving feature which causes an IDEAL
Boiler to so soon repay its cost
Besides, a large body of fire gives steady results and sure control. Once kindled the fire will not
go out all winter, if fuel is added once or twice a day and ashes removed every other day. These
and many other exclusive features make IDEAL Boilers and AMERI

prices now within reach of the humblest cottager and the family thai

8T. PAUL, Nov. 2. (Special.) An
11-car special train known as the
Western Governors' Special will leave
St. Paul tomorrow on a 20-day trip to
II cities of the East and Mlddie West,
The excursion Is to be a reversal of
the "get acquainted" trips that have
been made by the East to the West In
years s;one by.
Elaborate arrangements have been
made In all cities to by visited to en
tertain the distinguished men making
up the party. In nearly every In
stance the train will be met upon en
tering any state by the Governor of
that state and other prominent people.
They will accompany the train to the
border line and turn it over to the
Governor of the next state. In all
cities visited, the leading commercial
organisations have taken charge of ar
rangements and there will be a series
of luncheons and banquets and much
speecmaking. when the Western Gov
ernors will be constantly called upon to
describe the objects of the trip.
Cars Will Be Instructive.
The exhibit cars, to be part of the
special train, will be instructive of
the resources of the mines.' forest and
i. Id of the West. These cars will be
parked near the center of population
of the cities to be visited and repre
sentatives of the state will explain the
exhibits and offer Information and lit
erature regarding the northwest por
tion of the United States. This will
bring authentic Information, backed up
by comprehensive exhibits of possi
bilities of the American Northwest
widely and forcibly to the attention of
the East and Middle West.
The Governors of Oregon and Idaho
art among the representatives from the
Pacific Northwest scheduled to make
the trip. More than 4000 miles will be
traveled between tomorrow and Decem
ber 18. The cities to be visited will
have a population In excess of 11,000.
000. Wratera States Interested.
The Idea originated at a meeting of
the executive board of the Western De
velopment Association at Salt Lake
City April 20. The plan as proposed by
the Western Development Association
was adopted by the Northwestern De
velopment League. Then came the
work of Interesting the various com-re-inlties
of the Western States, which
was soon followed with the announce-
ment of the willingness of the West
ern Governors to accompany the spe
cial, and the train will be directly un
der the control of the officials of the
Western Governors' special.
Motion pictures will be made show
ing the departure of the special from
St. Paul and the films will be dis
played over the prominent American
vaudeville circuits. California and the
1915 exposition have one complete car,
Oregon .and Idaho have combined on
a car and so have Montana and Wash
ington, Minnesota, North and South
Dakota and Colorado and Wyoming,
making five cars devoted to exhibits.
Governor West, of Oregon, said to
day: "I am making this trip at a great
personal sacrifice, as there are things
at home that almost demand my at
tention during the next few weeks, but
I think the benefits of the trip to the
people of the East, as well as to the
people of my state, will more than
compensate for my temporary sacri
fice." "This surely will be the greatest edu
cational trip ever undertaken," said
Governor Hawlcy, of Idaho. "The East
knows too Jlttle about the West and I
am sure that when we return many
thousands of people will have had their
eyes open to the wonderful opportuni
ties awaiting them In Idaho and other

When he was arrested an automatic

BATTLE IS RAGING
Italians Seeking to Drive Arabs
FIRST ATTACK SUCCEEDS
Movement Is Made to Extend In
vaders' Front, and Hot Engage
ment With Turkish Regulars
Is Reported in Progress.
TRIPOLI, Nov. 26 (2 A. M.). An
Important movement Is in progress,
with the view of driving the Arabs
out of the oasis and extending the
Italian front. The action, which was
begun at daybreak, was opened with
an attack on Fort Mesri by the Sixth
Brigade, from Boumeliana, on the west
After several hours' fighting, the
Italians succeeded in dislodging the
Arabs, and General Frugones, com
mander of the Italian forces, ordered
the third division on the east front to
advance toward Honni. Part of the
Sixth Brigade Joined the Third, tak
ing a position so as to protect the
division from attack in the direction of
Ainzara and to prevent a junction of
the Arabs and Turks.
At the time of filing this message,
the Italian extreme rifcht is hotly en
gaged against the Turkish regulars.
The new front. If the movement Is
successful, will extend from Mesri to
Honni. As soon as the Italians are
established, reinforcements will be
rushed up to positions strongly en
trenched by the engineers.
