There la an obvious endeavor, however, to avoid anything suggesting tha existence of a substantial disagreement or promoting anxiety regarding the conference. Their desire seems mainly to show that M. Ctemen- ceau's standpoint is not so remote from Mr. Wilson's as might appear at flrat ■ight and that aay differences that exist ought to be arranged with pains and patience. M.

The total number of registrants Inducted Into service by draft since June, 1917, Is 1,171. Of thle number 970 were of the registrants of June. 1917, 189 of the registrants ot June, 1918, and 72 of the registrants of September, 1918.

By Associated Press to The Review Parts, France, Dec. 31.—Great interest Is manifested among conference delegates and in French political circles ln President Wilson's trip to Italy because of the Importance of the subjects he is expected to discuss there.

This Is one of the first concrete questions of this kind that President Wilson will be called upon to discuss.

most inquiry In tha city is will the
working hours at the shops remain
the same under the new time as they
were under the present time. Under
tha present arrangements, the most
of the men at work tn the shops will
begin their woi— with the new year
one half hour earlier than they did
today. While tha shop clock* will be
turned up one hour, work will begin
one-hall hoar earlier. This is believed
to be the decision of all of the shops
of the city. The men who during
the month began the day's Vork at
6 o'clock a. m. will under the new time
begin at 6:30 a. m. It is conceded

_Al vhero time Is mentioned should re-

construed Into contempt of court. It
ta the duty of citizens at their homes
to have) their clocks and watches carry
the new time in order to prevent con-
islon. Let Alliance have but one
