Party Has Three Members
Coalition Cabinet.
Reed of Majority GImb as Reason
for Offer to Contingent Dem
ocrats Hold Important Posts.

nniRAnn Serbia. Aug. 17. via
Paris. Aug. IS. The coalition of the
Jugo-Slavs' new cabinet has proved to
b no surprise. A final attempt yester
day to form a coalition caBinet of
democrats in conjunction with the old
radical party failed.
Premier Davidovitch was forced to
make a coalition with the socialists.
The new cabinet has 15 democrats, three
socialists, one independent and the
minister of war. General Hadjitch.
Three cabinet positions for the so
cialists seems many, since they have
only 11 representatives in parament.
But Mr. Davidovltch needed a majority
and made this big offer to the socialist
party. The important ministries are in
tha hands of the democrats. The new
ministry of the interior goes to Probi
cevic. a former premier, as a condition
of a coalition that this ministry must
rn to the old radical party. On this
controversy attempts at a concentra
tion cabinet were shattered.
Territorial Division Fair.
Probicevlc a powerful member of the
democratic party, as minister of the
interior, will oversee the coming elec
tion of the constituent assembly. Mr.
Drachkovlch has the portfolio of com
munications, and as the question of
transportation is most important, the
position must be filled by an. able man.
Mr. Boliak returns to his position as
minister of agrarian reform, with which
has been consolidated the ministry of
agriculture. This also is an important
position because of the drastic land re
forms now planned. Trumbitch. an in
dependent, now in Paris, is made min
lnster of foreign affairs.
Territorially, the new cabinet is di
vided fairly evenly. There are 17 port
folios now Instead of 20. Of these 17
at least eight are held by natives of
provinces formerly under Austrian rule.
The other ministers are natives of the
old kingdom of Serbia. The general
impression here Is that the new cabi
net will have a hard time because of
Us small majority in parliament.
Big Isaacs to Be Faced.
The belief is that the issues to be
taken up at once are an agrarian law.
financial rehabilitation and elections
for the constituent assembly. It is not
known whether the present parliament
represent public opinion. The Narody
party, which is a small In opposition,
claims it does not and demands a decen
tralised government and new elections
in the hope that its representation will
be Increased.
But elections cannot be held until j
after army demobilisation, which in
turn cannot take place until boundaries
are settled. In other words,, the main

undeniably clever and his personality
fairly scintillates. He prefaces., al
ways, his entertainment by reminding
his auditors that they are free agents.
I at liberty to accept and reject of their
own volition any or all of his demon
strations. "It Is true that since the beginning
of spiritism there have been many true
and many fraudulent mediums," says
Alexander, "but I have for my object
only to mystify and entertain."
That is exactly what Alexander does.
He mystifies completely, although
plenty of investigating souls can tell
you exactly how he does every trick.
But the majority of the proletariat does
not know how every trick is done, and
so it is that Alexander fulfills his mis
sion and does mystify. Also he enter
tains, even the know-it-alls, in which
he again fulfills his mission. Possibly
his crystal-gazing is the most fascinat
ing part of his programme, Because me
members of the audience participate as
individuals in its development. They
feel as if they have a hand in the show.
A sdendid story might be written
about the trend of unrest as indicated
by the variety of questions asked, the
constant seeking for happiness, tne
quest of romance, the hope of fulfilled
ambitions, the realization of prosperity,
the hope for health. There Is no doubt
ing the fact that Alexanaer noes an

in this engagement Alexander Is in
troducing an experiment in wnicn ne
reproduces likenesses of old masters
or photographs or any person, iiis
or dead, as called for by persons in
the audience. The canvases are shown
to be blank, persons in the audience
are at liberty to examine the canvas
and inscribe initials or other markings
on the frame. Then the markings are
ninred on the " stage in a frame and

whereupon it is exhibited through the

about Alexander's entertainment is
that he lets everybody in on anything
their wits can grasp.
Verily, his entertainment is exactly
what he calls It, a "show of wonders.

WASHINGTON. Aug. 15. More than
27.000 employes of the federal and mu
nicipal governments In the District of
Columbia are receiving less than 19
a month. This estimate, based on fig
ures compiled by the Joint congressional
committee on reclassification of sala

ployes a dally minimum wage of 13.
Klve thousand of the 17,000 are clerks
and 1000 stenographers and typists.
More than 10.000 of the total are em
ployed In the treasury department.
Cases of long service at low pay
found in the survey included: One was
that of a woman, an assistant mes
senger. s4 years old. who entered the
service 41 years ago, at $432, and now
is receiving 7:.
Another was a clerk having super
vistory responsibility. 73 years old. who
entered the service 41 years ago at $900
and now receiving $1000.

THOSE who seek exciting and sus
taining entertainment will find it
at the Heilig, where Alexander is
striding along Into his second week.
This will be the last visit the healer
of hearts, prophet, preacher of opti
mism and entertainer de luxe is going to
pay us for a long time, so it would
behoove those who haven't heard or
seen him to step right over to the
Heilig some time 'his week.

years old. and a show every night.
Even though you don't believe what
you see Alexander do. it's good fun. and
for every unbeliever there's a dozen
believers. Alexander has been all over

COLUMBUS, Ohio. Aug. 25. Reports
from Camp Sherman. Chilllcothe, Sun
day indicated that 18 of the 20 or more
interned German prisoners who escaped
from the stockade early in the day
had been recaptured. Six of the
number were caught within the
camp. Two others were apprehended
at Chilllcothe and It was reported that
five had been arrested at Clrcleville.
Five others were captured in Columbus
as they reached the city on a traction
car from Chilllcothe.
The prisoners made their escape dur
ing a severe electrical storm. Through
a secretly constructed tunnel, leading
from the cellar of the barracks. In
which they were quartered, to a com
pany street 50 feet away, the men made
their escape. The tunnel, camp offi
cials said, was an ingenious affair.
Their barracks, the officers said, are
inspected daily. It is not known how
the tunnel was constructed but officers
are of the opinion that it must have
taken the prisoners weeks to tunnel It
and dispose of the excavated dirt.
Officers said that a recent canvass
of the prisoners showed that 25 of the
199 interned at Camp Sherman wished
to remain in the United States. None
of the prisoners are said to have of
fered any resistance when arrested.
