TIO.N OF LICENSE -APRIL ST^ Council Once Ordered Them Closed but Upon Receipt of Protests Decid< ed to Submit Mutter to Voters. Whether or not the city shall license pool halls will be the paramount issue at the city election to be held in LaHarpe April 4th. The usual set of municipal officers will be elected but "how they stand on the pool hall question" will have a great deal to do with the yote they receive. Probably the candidates will line up,..on pro-pool and anti-pool hall platforms. A few weeks ago,' the city council declined to license pool halls, thus putting them but of business. Protests were filod and the council decided to submit the question to the voters at the spring election. <. Those who oppose the licetising of pool rooms declare that the whole atmosphere of such institntions, even if no perceptible harm may be observed, is conducive to immoral tendencies and-that ample recreation may be provided in other places. 63RD.

Since last night there has been a precipitation of nearly seven inches of snow, the season's record here, and five inches have fallen since 7 o'clock this morning. The telegraph wires were the first to go and early this morning it was reported that such service was badly crippled not only in Kansas but in Missouri. The Associated Press announced that its telegraph service out of Kansas City was >adly impeded. Long distance telephones to certain points still were working out of lola late this afternoon, liut many toll lines had yielded to theij weight of snoW and were out of commission. It was reported that 40 poles had toppled ov^r in the Wcinity of Tola since last night. Passenger service on the railways and the interurban was somewhat dis turbed late this afternoon with the prospect that conditions would be much worse b}- night.

After the usual supper at which members of*^ the faculty, Miss Irish, Miss Griffiths, Miss North and Miss Varner, waited on the tables, Rev. B. M. Powell took up the discussion of the lesson. Next Sunday's lesson deals with Saul's selection as king and Dr. Powell summed up its meaning in the words:, •"The. throne does not make the king; nor the; king the throne.". Following tills the boys were asked que-stions by the speaker relating to the elements of kingship. The contest song was, "When the Roll is Called Up Yonder," and the strong tenor voices of the, fellows on Red side led thepi to victory. Jn fact the Reds as well as. the Blues are in the Might now and both sides extend a hearty welcome to all who will come.

Democratic Leader Underwood making his last sPeech on the floor of the House before going to the Senate, declared the House haa done its work and if the government were not properly financed it would not be the fault of that body. The Senate after concurring with the House on the current appropriations went into executive session to lake up noraihation.s. »'resldent Wilson began signing bills iand resolutions at i) o'clock. All hope of the shipping bills and conservation measures was abandoned anil while the president worsted both houses marked time for the hand or the clock ,to touch 12, noon. The Sixty-third Congress had been in almost continuous session since the inauguration of President AVilson two years ago. Beginning with an extra session called by the. "resident April 7„ 1913, the Congress has worked continuously for 637 days. Much important legislation was accomplished, but much contemplated, soma of it hard pressed by the Presi- dent'and parly leaders was left undone. It is the present intention of the President and his advisers to give Congress a rest. Rather than force an extra session they would leave the remainder' of the administrations aspirations to a new Congress next win ter, which, although under Democratic control will have a greatly reduced majority in the House. Foremost in the enactrnents of the Sixty-third Congress ^^re: The L'nderwood-Simmons tariff act, with the income tax, which replaced the Payne-AIdrlch tariff law. Anti-trust lawg to supplement the Sherman act,- including the Clayton iaw and the Federal Trade Commission act. Repeal of the Panama Canal Tolls eremption for American coast-wise shipping. An act directing the building at a cost of $35,000,0(0 of a government railroad to the m neral fields of Alaska. Act to regulate cotton exchanges and to penalize deallilgs in purely speculative cotton future sales. I A special internal revenue tax, com monly called the "war tax." , A' government war risk insurance bureau to Insure American ships against the hazzards of war, and an act providing for the transfer of fer- elgn-owned or built ships to American registry. Of those measures which failed of enactment or could not be considered for lack of time, the following are regarded by the^ Democratic leaders as paramount: Bill for government purchase or charier of transoceanic ships for the , establishment of an American mer- i chant marine which c-.countered the most stubborn filibuster in the history of the Senate, created an Insurgent movement in trie ] Democratic ranks and held up general legislation for weeks of the last session: The immigration bill includiiig a lit eracy test, fo raliens, wihich passed both hoas^s, was vetoed by"the President and failed by a narrow margin to repass ithe House on a motion to overturn the veto. Conservation measures \ urged by the President to provide a new system for leasing of water-power sites and a leasing system to open the niln eral resources of the country. A bill to enlarge the measure of Philippine self-government and to tend the promise of ultimate independ ence to the Filipino people. Regulation by the Interstate Commerce Commission ol the issue of rail road securities. Rural credits legislation contemplat ing the establishment off a system of farm mortgage loans.

THE OPINION OF AN EXPERT Professor Salser Is Anxiviis to Have lolii Kent Up with tiie High School Procession. ProfesKor C. W. Sal.ser, who for four years was princiyal of the lola high scliool, but who for the past five years has been Director of Extension in the State ."^iornial,: came In yesterday after noon for an official visit to the scliools of lola. An informal reception was tender<!d:: him last evening at Library Hall which in spite of the stormy niglit was iitttdnded by a dozen or more of the .^vxjrinal school graduates residing here. This, morning Mr .Salser visited the Itigh school, and later when seen by a Register reporter he spoke in the warmest terms of the excellent work being done. He was reluctant to he Ir tervlewed on tiie subject of the new building, but when pressed for an orjiinion he said: On account of my long connection with the lola high school I am still deeply interested In It and If I were a citizen here I should certainly support the proposition that is now iumd- Ing for a new building. The truth is that if lola is to keep step with the high school procession in the state sucli a building is absolutely necessary. Parsons, Coffeyville, Cherryvale and .N'eodesha have all made notable advances in their high school facilities within the past year or two or are preparing, now to do so. 1 sliould certainl.v be sorry to see lola fall behind ot'ier towns of equal or of less population, for I firmly believe your school population is going to increase rather than diminish from this time forward. And in all my experience I never knew, a town whicli complained that it had tpo good a high school." returned to Einporia on train.

Ships Fire Has Made a Hell of the Strait Even Though the Turkn Deny thfc Loss. (By the Assoejiated') Tendon, Mar. 4. -The Interest of British readers in the Russian campaign has again drifted to the extreme west battle line where Petrograd reiiorts that Gen. Brufflloff has won a noteworthy ] victory south of Baligrod, inflicting ij heavy losses on the Austrians who ^^•ere again pressing north to the relief of Przemysl. At the same time an unofficial dispatch from Bucharest credits the Rus sian forces -with the. reoccupation of towns in Galicia, about sixty miles from Tarnopl. ^ On the other hand Vienna reports the repulse of desperate Russian counter attacks iil the Carpathians with comparative ijiactiyity along the remainder of the ;Hne. Berlin admits tlie German r4tirement from the north of Warsaw, v'hlch Was made in good order in spite of the haste that necessitated the abandonment of the wounded. On' the western battle front in Belgium and in France the French now appear lo be content to hold the position they claim t|'o nave won in the Champagne district.. While British bHtlleships are battering away at .No.! 8 and No. 9 in the Dardanelles from a point ten miles within the entrance, French warships from the gulf of £aros are bombarding the Turkish position at Bulair. Krupp (-uns Unmounted. A report has been current in London that C'Crtain big Krupp guns rie- cenlly sent lo the Dftrdaneiles are still unmounted an|j that an aerial re- connaisance made last evening seems to confirm this report. •The battleships of the allies -Which no'w show all the colors of the triple entente with the addition of a Russian cruiser undoubtedly turned the strait of the Dardanelles into an inferno which has spelled destruction to the Tt^rkish. defenses. On the other hand,-reports from Constantinople deride this activity as Ineffective. The Turks, however, dt^ admit the destruc lion of outer forts, which they say they expected, but they declare the inner works impregnable. The Turks rely on mines biit the mine sweepers of the Allies have- been busy within a mile and a half of the forts, destroy ing a Turkish mine field detected by a sharp-eyed aviator. Among other reinforcements which are said now to mjake the fleet of the Dardanelles numl^ over fifty ships, is the British battleship Canopus, last heard of as anchored off the Falkland islands. In the Falkland Island fight the Canopus fired the first shot at the German squadron under command of Admiral Von Spee. The only craft which either French or British authorities has been coihpelled to withdraw from action is the British torpedo boat destroyler Zephyr, built 20 years ago. The allied fleet; morning resumed this (Thursday) their bombArdment of the inner forts ot the Dardanelles according to a Renters dispatch from its Athens correspondent. The text of the dispatch follows: ^ The bombardment of the Iwter forts of the Dardi |nelle8 was resumed Thursday morninp. Ten warships [operation. Accord- joflicer only two) ot remain intact.
