Buenos Ayres, Dec. 22—The first statement of the American Secretary of State Lansing caused officialdom here to close up, clam-like. His subsequent modification failed to restore talkativeness. Officials evidently consider the situation too delicate to discuss. Neither the Wilson note nor the Lansing statements have yet materp ially affected South American markets. A majority of traders who do not expect any speedy result from either. Press comment is typical of this |r>view. Editorials agree that the note Is "valiant and sensible and expresses the sentiments of belligerent peoples as well as neutrals." The newspapers agree that the diagnosis President Wilson seeks is obviously necessary to cure the present disease. Crushes Fingers in Stove Company's Plant Mr. Aaron .Jones of North Liberty street suffered an unfortunate accident Friday morning while at work at the Sun Ray Manufacturing Co.'s plant on South Sandusky street. Mr. Jones was engaged in lifting and moving large stoves when one of them fell/ painfully crushing the two small fingers of his left hand. Mr. Jones was taken to a physician's office where the injured fingers were dressed. T TO BE EAST SENT HOME Columbus, Dec. 22—Capt. R. U. 'Hastings, adjutant of the Eighth Ohio Infantry, said here today: "Ohio guardsmen at the border may not be as happy as they might be but they are well-fed, well-clothed, and above all, in good health." Hastings, in Ohio on a furlough to look after his duties as superintendent of the Boys' Industrial school at Lancaster, asserted that if boys of his regiment are really involved in a "round robin" protest, as EI Paso dispatches say, he does not believe they are justified. He said, however, he had heard nothing of the incident before he left the border for home. He urged that the "folks back home" give Ohio soldiers every attention and encouragement they can "The boys went south," he said, "\& serve the country. If there had heen war there would have been a different story to tell, but the soldiers deserve every bit of credit just the same. And what's more, you can't tell what they yet may be called on to do." Hastings declared it his opinion Ohio troops will be among the last sent home. ENGLISH PRESS TURNING BITTER TOWARD WILSON FOR PEACE MOVE By United Press. London, Dec' 22.—The more England digests Wilson's peace note the more bitter the country feels. This was the conclusion to be drawn from newspapers this afternoon which went farther than the morning's in denunciation of Wilson's move. The afternoon press was a unit in Its resentfulness. "It is singular indeed," the Evening Standard declared, "that statesmen of Wilson's perspicacity can labor under the delusion that any move of his toward peace would be welcomed by the Allies. "Tbe whole facts of the situation should warn him that intervention is not desired." London, Dec. 22.—The attitude of the government on Wilson's note cannot be defined until after England has consulted with her Allies, Bonar Law announced in Commons. He spoke in reply to question seeking exact definition of England's position on note. The Elks' Christmas tree illuminated. In the Mother Lodge of the EIVs on West 13rd street, near Broadway, New York, is s Christmas tree th-'rty feet hish that will ^low with the illumination of 935 colored electric bulbs for tht* poor kiddies Christmas. MONDAY WAS BANNER DAY AT POSTOFFICE AT ORANGE SCHOOL "Monday was banner day at the postoffice," said Postmaster W. E. Haas, Friday. It was tbe biggest day in the history of the office and the work was efficiently handled in good time by all the attaches of the service," concluded the P. M. This speaks well all around. The people surely are using Uncle Sam's jn service for nearly everything now- TWENTY YET MISSING IN E FIRE a-days and the volume of business as it increases at the Delaware postoffice is receiving proper attention and good service. Mr. Haas says the mail bags are big and heavy and the people of Delaware are certainly using the service very liberally. The all-night service is working out very nicely for everybody. Over four hundred patrons of the j Orange Township Centralized School 'attended the formal dedication of that building Thursday, morning and afternoon, when a number of prominent Ohio educators were present as speakers, with Gov. Frank B. Willis the orator of the day. Throughout the early morning the classes were in session, with the building open for inspection, the program begin- Lunches were served at noon in the Domestic NEXT PEACE MOVE MUST Injures Hand in Aiding Stranded Automobile AuiTD eai id umunDcnhlgh sch°o1 °f the flrst &rade- ***** UYlK rUUK HUnUul-J/ said that he could produce the docu- ._ riMt lini i to ment t0 prove u' and disP'ayed t0 HEAR GOV.

Pearson assured the Board that the shower of brickbats was over, and that bon quets would be in order in the future. At the close of the day's progran the people were so imbued with a desire to come together frequently in their attractive and interesting building, that upon the suggestion of Rev. A. W. Smith, Clerk of the Hoard of Education, a committee was appointed to draft a working plan for organizing a Country Life club. The following men were appointed and will offer their report at a subsequent meeting, probably at the next number of the lyceum course: Rev. A. W. Smith, Rev. C. W. Hempstead, Mr. M. B. Dickerson, Mr. Stanley Gooding, Mr. Fred Gooding. WAR OFFICES BV ROBERT .1. BENDER l'nited Press Staff Cm ITM|llim1lial Washington. Dec. 22.—Recovering slowly from the dizzy whirl of yesterday's history-making developments, government officials and foreign diplomats here today looked to the foreign offices of the belligerent nations for the next peace move. As outlined in early reports strong exception was at first taken to President Wilson's overtures in both England and Canadian press. This outspoken exception, seemingly today has been toned down, the move now- being called merely "inopportune." The attitude of allied diplomats here also show a trend in the same direction. The administration believes however this feeling is not sufficient to cast any real gloom over the situation. It appears the same surprise and wonderment was occasioned in Europe by the president's overtures, as were manifest here when his move became known. This first wonderment over, the president believes the warriors will feel far more inclined at least seriously and carefully to consider his suggestions. Accurate sounding of the allied government's attitude cannot be definitely known for several days at least. This government is meanwhile convinced that when this accurate sounding is taken, it may show the proposals struck a responsive chord. KING WINTER BRINGS HEAVY SNOW IN NIGHT Mr. Tom Tait. taxicab driver for the Swearinger cab line, suffered a lacerated thumb and torn thumb na.l Thursday afternoon while endeavoring to lend assistance to a stranded automobile on the Sunbury pike, in working around the machine. .Mr. Tait got his left hand between th" two machines and when they (ami' together the injury resulted. STEEE PIANT ACCIDENTS SLIPPERY While on her way to call on her grandmother Mrs. Rorman of Bymer street, Friday afternoon, Mrs J. W. Ruder of South Franklin street fell on the slippery sidewalk on Xorth I'nion street breaking two bones in her left elbow. Mrs. Ruder was taken to Dr. Hughe's office where the bro! e\ bones were set and thi injury relieved. Another victim of the slippery condition of walks was James White, colored, night watchman of the Delaware Garmet factory, Thursday night when he sustained a bad fall and two fractured ribs as a result of slipping on the icy edge of the rear door-step while making one of his rounds. ***************** ♦ COURT HOUSE ♦ * * ***************** Real Estate Transfers Milo C.

Wichita, Kansas, Dec. 22—Up to an! early hour today only eighty of the 100 persons in the Masonic home here, which burned last night had been accounted for. Eight children were trapped in a wing through which flames were sweeping and were given up for lost, after rescuers and firemen had tried in vain to rescue them.

Science department of the school, and Gov. Willis gave his address in the afternoon session. State Supt. F. B. Pearson, Supt. Paul Lybarger, Pres. A. A. Gooding of the Orange Board of Education, and Rev. Smith the clerk of the board, were all speakers during the day, and the school was most fittingly dedicated for its educational work. Governor Willis recalled his school days at West Galena, and paid a high tribute to his former teacher, Mr. Freeman, whom he recognized in the audience. While the Governor praised the West Galena school and described it as an excellent school, as schools went in those days, he could but contrast the meager equipment and small opportunity of that school with the advantages offered in the Orange building, which he characterized as being up to the minute in every respect. The Governor spoke of the sad plight of the boy who might have been found guilty of having in his possession in that school of his boyhood days, an earn of corn, a hand saw, or even a drawing set. He pictured also what would have befallen the teacher who would have dared to teach some of the things we consider a valuable part of the curriculum today. The Governor made a strong plea for inculcating the virtues of industry and thrift, but in order that none of his hearers might receive an erroneous idea of thrift, he called to their attention in an emphatic manner that the building of a centralized school building was no evidence of a lack of thrift, but that on the contrary that it was an excellent investment. Supt. Pearson's address was a rare treat, thoroughly enjoyed by all. He assured the patrons of the Orange school that their high school ia a CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES TONIGHT DELAWARE GIRLS OVERLOOK OFFER MADE BY PASSING OF LEAP YEAR Of IN CASE OF U. S. WAR Xew York, Dec. 22—If the United States should ever enter war, the munitions plant of the Bethlehem Steel company, greater than the famous Krupp works at Essen, Germany, would be turned over to the uses of this government, Chas. M. Schwab, president of the Bethlehem Steel company, said in addressing the members of the Lotus club. With a capacity of one million rounds of heavy ammunition a month, Schwab said, his plant was fifty per cent more efficient than the Krupp works. He charuterized it as one of the greatest preparedness assets of the United States. "I am an optimist." said Schwab, speaking of peace, "some see disaster if peace comes, but I look upon peace as a blessing and I should rejoice in it if it came. But we want a conclusive peace and not a peace which will merely pressage another war." Admitting that the I'nited States industrial world is to meet strenuous '■onipe-tition when peace comes, Schwab said he felt this country would be able to meet any competition, and urged a greater American marine as one of the means of meeting foreign competition. As an impetus to American shipping the steel magnate ^suggested that American vessels be given a lower toll rate in the Panama canal than foreign vessels. A MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM CO. K.
