Final details of the system will be worked out during the day to-day, Chairman Rose said, at a conference to be held with John W. Barr, president of the Fidelity Columbia Trust Company, this morning. Mr. Barr conferred with Mayor Smith on the subject yesterday and it was announced fol lowing the conference that he would see four or 'five other bankers during the day yesterday and make their position known to-day.

Pending the working out of the final Chairman Rose said he preferred not to make the system known, but that the public will be given ail of the details as to the method by which the city proposes to save the salary "of its employes without them being forced to pay exorbitant rates of interest, in order to get their money each week. I ik Snow Ordinance, Also. other matters which the Board of Public Works expects to present to the General Council to-nisht are an ordinance requiring property owners to clean snow and ice from sidewalks in front of their property, and a recommendation concerning the future of the proposed extension of railroad tracks on Washington street, from Brook to First street. The ordinance relative to the cleaning: of snow will propose that property owners in the zone from the east side of First street to the west Side of Seventh street, and from the river to the south side of Broadway are to clean all snow and ice from the sidewalks abutting their property, the cleaning to be done within a period of twentyfour hours after the cease of a snowfall. Many snow ordinances have been killed in the General Council in the past due to the fact that they included practically the entire city, but it is the belief of Chairman Rose that one taking in only the business section of the city will meet with the approval of the members of the Council and those affected by its passage.

Relative to the extension of tracks along Washington street. Chairman Rose declined to say what recommendation the board will make to the Genera Council, but it is generally understood that the body will be asked to pass an ordinance repealing a grant given by the former Council authorizing an extension of the switching facilities of the Louisville Jeffersonville Bridge Railroad Company. The grant was made by the former Council at the request of the former Board of Public Works, since which time the matter has been in court and lio effort has been made by the rnilioad company to exercise the right. thov were assigned to Battery B. 13Sth Field Artillery, and recently Bernard, the older brother, was made a and Harry.

PASSAGE OF COAL AND OIL LAND LEASING BILL SEEN Senator King Attacks Measure and "Bureaucratic Methods" of Handling Public Domain. Washington. Dec. 17. Debate on the Walsh Coal and Oil Land Leasing Bill conti'nued in the Senate today with Administration leaders confident of its passage to-morrow before adjournment for the holidays.

Introduction by Senator Swanson of amendments to eliminate from the bill provision for adjustment of private claims on naval reserve No. '1, in California, precipitated an attack by Senator King on the measure, and what he called "bureaucratic inet lions" of handling the public domain. The Utah declared the Government's attitude toward the claims of prospectors in the naval reserves was "cruel and unwarranted. During the debate Senator flallin-ger. minority leader, announced that he was opposed to the leasing1 plan and would not support the bill.

Sen-a tor Phclan. who had been counted an opponent, announced that he would support it. Secretary Lane has recommended to Congress an appropriation of $10U. 000 to investigate commercial and economic practicability of utilizing lignite for producing fuel oil. gvisojine substitutes, ammonia, coal-tar and gas for power.

Al though the sun was shining brightly and the thermometer was near 20 de grees above, the nezo mark, skaters were out in large numbers.

The ice on the Ohio reaches from the turn at the foot of Bank street to a short distance below the foot of Greenwood avenue and extends about 150 feet from the bank. The pond in Shawnee Park was flooded, but most of the skaters went on the river to enjoy the afternoon, and also tjo be able to say that they had skated on ihe river. Around the wharf only a little water could be seen, and this was out where the current was strong. The towbeat Northern continued to work between here and the station to keep the ice. well broken.

Expect Break To-day. The ice in the river will begin to break late this afternoon if the warm weather continues. This will place all boats below the local harbor in danger. Some of these boats are the finest' running on the Ohio. Although every precaution has been taken, somo of the boats may suffer damages, especially those moored Where the ice is solid.

One thier in favor of these ess Is is the ac that upp er river points are well frozen, with no indication of breaking for several days. If the upper points were to give way the damages probably would be large, as the ice on the upper Ohio is from two to five inches thick, but with the harbor here clear no great amount of damage will be done. Oil Barges Aground. Serious loss has been suffered by many companies above and below Louisville. A small towboat and two barges containing oil have ru.i aground below Louisville, according to reports received yesterday.

The boat is reported safe, but both barges are said to have been lost. The barges of coal that broke from their moorings near Cincinnati have not us yqt been located. They are givens up lost by the ow'ners. The freezing of the river prolonged the arrival of coal, as a number of barges carrying coal were on their way to Louisville. This was the first large amounst of coal of the year that was to arrive at Louisville by way of the river.

All of the barges are reported sale and will arrive soo after the river is cleared of ice. CHRISTMAS TREE SCARCITY IS DUE TO GAR SHORTAGE PRICE OF DECORATIONS INCREASES. THOUGH NO DEARTH EXPECTED HERE. Despite many adverse conditions interfer ing with the usual supply of Christmas trees and other things used in giving the homes and business houses that Christmas appearance without which the holidays do not seem to be complete the average person desiring to buy them will have an opportunity to do so. Trees, holly, needle pine, ground cedar and tabte trees have just begun to reach the local market and while the shipments so far have not been large the demand has been very strong.

Purchasers will ha-ve to pay from '20 to 100 per cent, more tor their Christmas decorations than they did, last year, but this does not seem to deter them. In former years there always was a goodly supply of Christniiis troe from the country surround big Louisville, but dealers say ill is year little is coming in from Jefferson county and Southern Indiana. This is due to the fact that farmers have been neglecting growing trees fit for the purpose and a to the deep snow which prevents the few persons who still have a supply on their farms from cutting them. Northern States as well as districts in. the South and TCast arc supplying the local needs.

Table trees, from one to two feet in height, are being sent here from Minnesota and Wisconsin and The Inrgcr ones from New Hampshire. 1 Folly wreaths come from Delaware and loose holly is being shipper! from South Carolina. Georgia is furnishing needle pine and even Japan is contributing to the Christmas decorations supply by furnishing bolts of Japanese red flowers. Some of th" local dealers have experienced difficulty in securing their supply, because cars are being used to transport food and munitions of war. John Wnisonstein who had bought and naid for a carload of green decorations from Delaware, were notified some time ago that the railroads had refused to accept shipment, but after considerable use of the telegmnb wires the ear finally arrived.

MUSICAL NOTES TURNED INTO DOLLARS FOR SANTA One of the best band concerts ever given in the city's history was enjoyed last night by one the most appreciative audiences ever assembled in Macauley's Theater. For more than two hours the 4Gth United States Infantry Jliltary Band, under the superb leadership of John Henri Sugclen, played classical selections, interspersed with popular encores. As a result of the concert the sum of $232 was added to the fund being- raised by the Courier-Journal Ca'mp Zachary Taylor Christmas Cheer Club to provide a grift for every man in khaki at the Louisville cantonment on Christmas eve. 1 Company Commanders are to be fathers of their respective commands at the Christmas eve celebration at Camp Zachary Taylor next Monday evening- These 2-S officers direct supervision of the jubilation around their respective Christmas tree. 2 Camp Zachary Taylor will be open to visitors on Christmas day as on regular visiting: days from 3 o'clock a.

Miniature Christm trees will tv placed in each of the thirty -six i wards of the base hospital. These will be placed on tables.

While the general public will be excluded from the Christmas eve celebration, the civilian population of Louisville will be represented by 228 members of the Courier-Journal Camp Zachary Taylor Christmas Cheer Club, one of whom will be assigned to each of the barracks. These civilians will report at the camp division headquarters Monday afternoon with a printed slip signed by cheer club officers, designating the particular barracks to which they are assigned. Between the time of their arrival and mess time they will assist in the work of decorating the trees. They will cat Christmas eve dinner with "the boys" and be present throughout all ceremonies.

To-day the Christmas Cheer Club will be provided by the Officers' Committee with a list of all the units to which gifts are to be sent, together with a tabulated statement of the number of gifts which will be required for each unit. 20,000 Gifts deeded.

Among yesterday's subscriptions to the soldiers' Santa Clans fund was one of 1 00 from Baylor Hickman, president of the Ewakl Iron Company, who wrote: "1 wish I could affort to make the check many times the size of the one sent, as my heart goes out to every fellow in this gre-it struggle of winning the war, and all of u.s who are too old to go to the front want the boys who are wearing the uniforms to feel that we are with them to the limit and are willing to back them with our last penny."

Crowding of aisles in moving picture shows and vaudeville theaters inusfi cease and owners and operators of all such theaters who refuse to comply with the law are to be cited to appear in Ordinance Court, according to an order issued by the Board of Public Safety yesterday to Building Inspector V. E. Glossop, who has been designated by the board to keep a sharp look-out for violators. The ordinance regulating the theaters pro vides lor a nne ot not less uian nor more than S100 for each offense. and each day or night, or.

in fact, each periormance, is to oe regaraeq as a eparate otrense. it was announced by the board yesterday. With a view of getting tne help or the owners of the theaters in regulating their respective houses, Building- Inspector Glossop yesterday sent a letter to Louis J. Dittmar, president of the local association of moving pic ture owners, requesting him to ap point a committee to confer on the subject, and the meeting will be held on a date to selected after Mr. Dittmar has notified the Building Inspector as to the personnel of the committee.

"Do not delay matters any longer, but determine on a plan of procedure and begin action at unee," Mr. Glossop said the Board of Public Safety instructed him, and for tbat reason it is his purpose to hold a conference within the next day or two to inform the theater owners of the action of the board. POOR TOTS' ONLY HOPE OF SANTA THROUGH CHARITY Association Has Only One-Fourth of Sum Required To Fill Stockings. One of the nurses of the Babies' Milk Fund asked one ot her small patients. 6 years old.

what she wanted Santa Claus to brinsr her on Christmas moraine. Without a mo ment's hesitation the reply came: "If he will just brins me some clothes and somethir.R to eat. Santa Claus needn't bring me any toys unless he wants to." The Associated Charities will see that the food and something to wear will be furthcoming', but it is up to the Louisville' Santa Clans Association to prove that Santa Clans is the patron faint of little children and really wants to make a visit upon each little child who needs and wants him. The supervisors and directors ot the various organizations who are co-operating in the investigating work assure the officers that no child on the lists has a wage-earner as a member of its family or has even a more distant relative from whom he may expert receive a little bit of cheer on Christmas morning. The fund has grown by $S0 since yesterday morning, making a total of $525.

Last vear the collections amounted to which furnished Christmas for children. The officers and members of the association are doing their utmost, but unless many more people eontribuate the scope of the work will have to be so materially diminished that Christmas. 1917, will be a day that social workers will want to blot out of their memory.
