ALLIANCE, OHTO, TUESDAY, AUGUST 8, 1916. TWO CENTS. NO AMERICANS UPON TORPEDOED SUB. FOR ADJOURNMENT f OF CONGRESS IT TIME NOT LATER THAN SEPTEMBER 30 Republican Candidate Hughes' Trip to West Creates a Stir in Democratic Circles—Say President Wilson Must Make Direct Seri es of Speeches—Shift Plans. y OF WELL KNOWN International News Service. Washington, Aug.' 8.—All administration forces were today working tooth and nail to force adjournment of congress net later than September 10. For the tint time since the national conventions, President Wilson today has had it made plain that he bas a tight on his hands for re-election. And ■ while he still insists that bis congressional legislative program be completed before congress adjourns he Is finally willing to use all pressure to get his 'petition pilla through. The president was toty in rather plain language yesterday by Vance McCormick,. chairman, and Homer S Cummings, vice chairman of tbe Democratic national committee, that the western trip of the RepubUcan candidate, Charles Evans Hughes would "put starch" in the Republican campaign. The attack on the administration's policy la to be most bitter and continuous as a result of tbe enlistment of Nelson O'Shaugbnessy, it was explained tbat many documents now tn the archives of the state department would be dragged Into the light. In order that the Mexican situation ahall be settled as far as possible before the latter days of the campaign tte president ls expected to accept the j latest Carranza note snd name the American commissioners within the next few days. Then the Democratic orators will be given the word to ent loose. Senator James Hamilton Lewis already has enunciated the "keynote" of the Mexican defense in the senate while today Representative B. Pat Harrison of Mississippi enunciated the administration aide in an lmpasaoned speech in the house. Both Messrs. McCormick and Cummins have told tbe president tbat the opposition attack upon his foreign policies would be much more easily hand* led than those upon Mexican program and the International affairs. And ln order to carry the tight back to his opponents, the president will be asked to make a direct series of speeches in accordance to his speech of acceptance. Present tentative plans call for a series of short trips commencing late in September and followed by a rapid fire "swing around the circle*. to commence about three weeks before election. The defection of Raymond Robblns and certain other progressive leaders has caused a shift ln plans and before the campaign is over it is entirely possible that the president will be seen as far west as the Pacific coast. 7 »EST|I LIGHT VOTE IS Colonel Charles Shem Dies at Lutheran Hospital in Cleveland LONG PROMINENT IN CITY BUSINESS Civil War Veteran and Active in Pythian Circles In the death of- Colonel Charles Shem at Cleveland, Monday afternoon! Alliance lost one of its best known and most highly respected citisens, a man who bas been prominent ln the business interests of the city and one who was known throughout Ohio and in surrounding states owing to his prominence in tbe work of the Uniform Rank Knights of Pythias. The end came about 2 o'clock Monday afternoon at the Lutheran Hosplt&l where he had been for a period of two weeks and two daya undergoing treatment for a complication of ailments and following a breakdown of hia health. When taiken to the hospital it was anticipated that an oper- II President _8rm iif Stand on | Enthusiasm Seemingly is at His Program of the Senate International News Service. Washington, Aug. 8.—President Wilson today refused to suggest a compromise plan whereby the senate and house could reconcile their differences on tiie construction program of thp naval bill. Senator Swanson of Virginia, representing Chairman Tillman of the senate committee and Representative Paggett of Tennessee, chairman of tbe house committee, vis Ited the White House and told the president that the conference committee named by the two branches were hopelessly deadlocked. Thy asked the president whether he had any plan tn mind that might solve the puzzle. The president, it was learned emphatically declared that he stands squarely on the senate program which provides for four battle orutsers and tear dreadnaughts of the most modern type tor the present year and for the three year building program inserted in the bill by the senate committee. Representative Padgett expressed the opinion that the house would not accept this but the president declined te yield and suggested that the entire question again be put up to both senate and house which will be done. "The big navy senators" were elated over the action ot the president, as they believed the house will finally ac- cpt at least the major portion of their construction program.

Low Ebb Election Day Every indication points to a light vote at the primary today. The fart that almost a half a score ot local candidates are in the fleld seeking a nomination fails to work much enthusiasm. The further fact that a bond issue of $100,000 for parks and playgrounds is to be voted upon —that Alliance is to have these necessary places for rest and amusement or do without them—causes little interest. Party lines are not sharply drawn, and the Issue between candidates seeking the same position falls to arouse the voters to action. The most optimistic do not expect more than a 20 per cent vote cast today of the Republican vote and the Democrats will be satisfied with a ten per cent vote. In the county there are three candidates seeking the nomination for representative, one of these being ex-Mayor E. P. Speidel. As there are three to nominate it is a safe bet that Mr. Speidel will be nominated. On the Republican ticket there are many candidates for the several offices for which nominations will be made today and some of these wtll be a case of nip and tuck, according to the best information obtainable. But with all this, the people will not enthuse, and the vote will be light. MANY CLWMSJRE5ENTED .

COLONEL CHARLES SHEM. ation would be performed but owing to his weakened condition the attending physicians and surgeons deemed it best to await a time when he would be stronger and better able to withstand the ordeal.

CITY COUNCIL IN LONG HOT WEATHER MEET Discuss Important Topics and Round Out Necessary Legislation Advocate better traffic laws Award Bond Issues for Street Paving and Waterworks The members ot the City Council braved the torrid weather conditions Monday evening, and held a two and a half hour session during which they rounded out a big grist of legislation and also discussed some other very Important topics. In behalf of the Alliance Automobflf Association, Secretary Bleich of the Chamber of Commerce, addressed council and asked that a committee be named to co-operate with the Auto Club ln the matter of getting better traffic regulations and conditions on Main street and other nearby thoroughfares. Mention was made of congested traffic at Main atreet and Liberty avenue. It was suggested that machines be not allowed to park within fifty feet of a street crossing. Also tbat standards be placed at street intersections directing the way in which autos and other vehicles should pass. Mention was also made of the need of zones being laid off to protect pedestrians, and the necessity of the people observing tbe use of street crossings. It suggested that signs should be placed to inform strangers of the several zones ln which the different speeds are restricted. Safety Director Patton was of the opinion that traffic officers should be used for the protection of pedestrians rather 'than for ^autoists, as tbe latter should be able to take care of themselves. Thought the ordinance as .to fast driving should be enforced. Mr. Bleich said his idea was to get a committee whose duty would be to.make survey of the needs here and then bave the necessary action taken to provide for such requirements. On motion of Mr. Lower President Barnard named Messrs. Grubb, Blnkley and Lower as a committee to meet with the Auto Club committee for the purpose above named.
