In Alfsenro of fltj Ch-rk Zli-irlcr I'ltj Aliurncy Tnnis Morx- St-rvt-d US' Clerk I'ro Tfiiu The same old spfttrc—a JccrepU, broken down fire station .and musly iwllce court—am.^e to frighten the commissioners for a while at tieir regular meetms this afternoon. U there Is any inunicipal department In town that isn't a credit to the city, it is the combination fire and police boadquarfers on South street. Probably, the municipal court rooni is adequate for its speciiil purpose though U 1 B not at all an inviting: establishment from a staniI|>oint of convenience or facility. The chief of police has no mon? i)riv;u-v than the town rounder because the. latter Is always on the job when there's sniuethlnfr doing. If Chief Coffleld iir roliceman Mcpherson and ThrlRiy brint; in a pris oner. In comes the crowil uf morbidly curious—<.'sii<'clally if the prihoner hapjM'nit-+f> l)r an unfortunate woman —find If tlie officers ar.- to Investigate tlie case out of the- hearing of the crowd, they must flee at last to tlic brick pile behind the frame building where they map hoiH> to hold a few minutes of conversation before their whereabouts are d'scovered. Tlie sleeping quarters for the city firemen are simply clear out of hann- _ony with all civic pride aad rcpnrd for 'sanitary conditions. The , firemen sleep upstairs and their "room" is about the size of a club house'cigar box. The walls and floor :.r? bare and the fi:v,Iiers decayed. If there' Is a place well calculated to decrease ef ficieney instead of increase It the sleeping quarters of the firemen is that place. Mayor Boninccr and the cojumls- sioners know these facts and they are .•striving vigcroiisly to remedy conditions. The mayor is especially interested because the fire and iwlice de- l>anment are under his supervision. Ever since be became mayor. Mr. Rol linger has planned to do suruethinp for the betterment of fire and police conditions and he has iiiaiie every improvement iiossible to make with the means at hand. But when there's no money what are you poing to do? • .That's the condition that confronted the com.nii.=Fiiinp:-s this afternoon. They admitted the need of a citj' building; buildinsr it now would give labor to the unemployed just at the time that it is most needed and i" could be built now more cheajily than it can later. But the money—ah. there's the rub. .".Vow, we coiild niise some monf^y and wouldn't it be I'o.^sible to make up the bnlaniV O'-och d by voting bonds'?" a cnmmissionor aske<l Travis Morse, city c (i \ms«-!lor. "I doubt wliPther you <an issue any more bonds prisent," Mr .^lo^se responded. ".Vow, could we borrow the firemen's fund and pay thiiu Interest*" "You mlcht do that," the nttornej answeicd, '.I the firemen are will Ing." lAnd so for ri -nrlv («<i hours, the commisslou'TS tried to p:ai '.-ome wav to Improve toe murilclpal building situation with <UTt sadrtMnn Ose taxpayers with additional burdm When at last, no way was tiiM -o\ercil the approprla lion,.ordinance carrying- t'le rtirjenf city.expenses was pa.'Jfcd .ind the com mission adj.-urned. The comiii'.--.="lonf'rs are not to be made the t .T -?et fcr critcism i -rmcern ing the city biiiUIing. If the i >p (ii)le will vote In make the imnrovenient they'll build the hall, or if some one will show •h'-m where they are to get the money without .'in unreasonabl? imposition - JI on the taxpayers, they'll build It. Ar.y solution of this difficult problem, will be thankfully considered. * In the abs. nee of Tify Clerk Ziejrier today.

The ceremony was simple but dignified. It was attended by all the prominent men of the revolutionary party. The proimscd cabinet comprises 1.1-Huen-Yeng, Huang-Sing and Wu-Tlng-Fang, all in Ihe front rank of the reform movement. The firsl onuial act ol Dr. Sun Yat Sen as president was to change tlie Chinese Calendar. lie niade New Year's day the first day of his Presidency, thus marking the comnienre- meui of a n"-w era .niiil making the Chinese year begin henceforth on 111" same day as the yc:ir bi>glns in most olher ctuintrW'S of the world.

The hoisting of an enormous flag of the new republic above the old Jos.=» house T ^as the signal for cheering which v.-ould have done credit to any .imericnn football crowd. "Chung Una, Chung Hna, Hodla: 'Vivela: Vivela; Chun; Chun: Chun:" fairly shook the old walls of the Chinatown district. SIBR Chinese National Son?. Chinese girls and boys, dressed In American fashion, sang a new Chin?se national song entitled "The Country of the Chinese Republic." to the air of "America." The sentiment of the song was something as follows: "Dr Sun Y'at Sen has sown the se»d and grown the republic. All of the Chinese should be patriots, of one hear< one love and one life for ihelr country and liberty and freft- dom. Manchu rnle is gone and"^ the Chinese shall remain forever free." More than 500 of the new Chinese flags were displayed in the district, together with portraits of the new nresldent. There w -as a parade through the district and si>eech-mak- at the public^ ball.

Illy the Associated Prc.<<s) Lar.sing, Mich., Jan. 2. —Governor Ciiase S. Osborn, in a statement here today, proposed that Taft and LaFol- leite both withdraw as presidential candidates in favor of Roosevelt or K.x-Senator Deveridge. The governor had prepared a -speech to this effect to be delivered in introducing LaFol- letto here. In view of the Senator's missing his train this morning he authorized the use of the speech as a statemeni of his views. Governcir Osborn added: "As between Taft aud l.t.FoUette, I'm foi; Taft." The governor's proposition was iiiiiile after he had accused LaFollotte of "Taking up thoMO things which might be termed popular that con- iiiliieil least danger to himself." Ho flankly Knid he did not bellevn Senator LaFollelte can be nominated for I lie iU'eslitt :ncy. or elected if noiulnal- ed. Utivernor Osborn said further: "Senator l.«l'ollette's style of cam- >:iign lends to arouse the pas.ilons of Ihe people antl to make for a condl- •Um of jiuhlic intolerance which is vlv .ays worse than personal or individual Intolerance because it has so Teiich more might. I have noticed t !;at while Senfttor I/aFoIlette did neat work in ridding Wisconsin of corruiit railroad domination he has never said anything against brewery domination in that state. Really as between the two I should prefer the railroad domination. However, it was 2-nod iioJitics to fight the railroads, but it v .o 'ild not have gotten Senator '.tFcHette anywhere jirobably if he fought brewery-owned saloons. I hope Senator T iFnllette may ba retained in the Senate during his entire Mfe time.
