Sheet Will Fight W. B. Mo Kiniey and G. O. P. in dining rooms of large hotels and in large city cates, the business man may now dine without his coat. This is true at the St Nicholaa In Decatur, as well as in the hotels In other cities. During the extremely hot weather this summer, the managements of the various hotels decided to net asido certain spaces in their dining rooms for tho coatlesg men. The large restaurants and cafes have done likewise. HAS BEEN ALTERED. Previously, the rule has been In effect that a man without a coat could r.ot eat in the dining rooms of the hotels. Alter much complaint by the r;uests, this has been altered. Managers of hotels and cafeg say that there s an army of coatless men this year. Carl Laux of the St. Nicholas hotel n this city, has reserved one part of :he hotel dining room for the men Tttired in negligee. He said that he made this rule on one of the days when mercury reached 102 degrees, find he thought be must take pity, on the men sweltering in coats. About 50 per cent of the men now appear without coats at the noon meal. Danville Press-Democrat.--The owners and publishers of the Illinois Statj Progressive Friday afternoon took over the offices and machinery of the Champaign Times, and in the future that paper will espouse the Bull Moose cause. The Times, which since 1872 has been issued a.s a weekly, will, for the present at least, continue as a Saturday publication. The Illinois State ProijriFpive. which will also be l-i inted in the Tim s office in Champaign, will be published in Danville, find the two papers will be issued as entirely separate publications, each pursuing an original, although in the main identical line of campaign. AFTER M'KINLEY. Dr. Henri G Bogart of Paris, who ihas made the Progressive a great factor in eastern Illinois politics during it.- brief existence, will also be at the 1 oad of the editorial department of the Times under its new ownership. The editor is thoroughly delighted at tting: given an opening in the Xlne- tet-nth district, and is rather anxious to try a few shots at William McKin- Zcy, the standpat boss, who, like your Vucle Joseph, is altogether unwilling to a d m i t that he is a dead one politically, BLOW TO G. O. P. The injection of the Times in Champaign county politics at this time is Itody blow to the Republican organization in the Nineteenth. Heretofore the- fccsses in that district have not been greatly agitated by the editorial bUzz- ing of many smaller sheets which in a half-hearted way threatened to pull away from the Q. O. P., and become apostles of the Bull Moose. Antagonism was to be expected from the Democratic organs, but the machine knew tow to take care of that. But just tt this stage of the game to have e progressive oiganization, which has proven itself capable of making a purely political paper a go, step in, with the avowed intention of going after Mr. McKlnlej-s goat, puts an entirely new light on the situation. WAR, RED WAR. Kence. war, red war. with lots of printer's ink, and plenty of ancient history, is predicted for the Nineteenth we many weeks have rooled around. I Little CHance Now to Adjourn in September. "Washington, July IS.--Another week in the lagging session of congress has tnded with the trust program in the senate little nearer completion than it was two weeks ago. In committees it wag another unprogrep?ive day, because of Inability of chairmen to rally enough senators for voting. The status of the Clayton bill before the Judiciary committee and the railroad securities bill In the interstate commence committee made it certain that at least another week would pass before the complete program could be submitted to the senate. There have been repeated declarations that the trade commission bill would not be given serious consideration until senators knew what legislation would be proposed In the other measures. DISCOURAGED. Prolonged delay s In bills have discouraged those most optimistic for a September adjournment. For several hours today a minority of the judiciary committee continued consideration of the Clayton bill. It practically was decided not to amend the section relating 1 to prohibition of holding companies. The section relating to exemptions, however, has teen amended. Labor, horticultural and agricultural organizations, formed for m u t u a l welfare, alone are exempted from its provisions. Consumers and fraternal organizations, orlg- ;nally Included, have been eliminat- 75 or 80 Come for Session in Decatur. LIST OF OFFICERS \ W. L. SHellabarger is Making Arrangements.
