Councilman Alexis J. Ltmobitrner, of the
23th Ward, this morning.
The mistake, which revealed the meth

when they began offering the entne Jobs
to six or seven men. In some cases the

that seven different men had- been prom

Allies Expect 70,000 Orien

,to Prove Winning Factor
in Great Battle.
pahis, Oct. i.
Seventy thousand Indian troops have
lelnforrcd the Allied nrmy arid are now
tMklng part in tlic decisive phnse of the
great battle of the Alsnc. Although
these troops arrived on Tuesday, "it wns
not until today that the censor would
nllow the fact to be publicly announced.
The Indian soldiers, 'who were brought
Into the war ione through the port of
Marseilles, comprise the flower of tho
forces of the British Empire's great co
li nlnl jirsscrslon.
It ofllclally is announced that the Ke

who weie withdrawn from that section
at the time of tho German Invasion, have
been gianted temporary furloughs, The

The great fighting ability of tho In
dian troops may make It possible for
them to decide the- battle. Although their
exact location on the line Is not known,
It Is believed they have been posted near
the British who hno been opposing thnt
section of the German array lying north
of the Alone, near Its confluence with
the Olse.
Nenrly three weeks of constant righting,
varied with terrific cannonades and bay
onet charges, have worn out the troops
on both sides, until now the human equa
tion figures Is an Important factor.
Tho troops comprise two Infantry di
visions and four brigades of cavalry. The
men are equipped with the same service
rllles as the Kngllsh soldiers use.
Among tho chiefs accompanying the
Oriental expeditionary force are tho
Mnharajah Sir Portab Singh, tho Mahara
Jahs of Blkanir, Patlala, Rutlam, Klshen
garh and Jodpur; the Nawabs of Jnoro,
Sachiu and Bhopal, and also the Malik
Umar Hayat.
Perhaps the most interesting soldier In
the group is the veteran Sir Pertntr. who
Is 70 yenr3 old, His nephew, only 16 ycatfc
old, accompanied the nrmy and begged
for a position on the line where he could
see some real action. Among the soldiers
are 1000 Thibetan troops, whose services
were offered by the palal Lama of
The machine guns which tho troops
brought with them were for the most
part bought with gifts of money and
jewels from royal families, of India.
LONDON, Oct. 1.
The Times correspondent sends the fol
lowing account from Marseilles of the
arrival of the Indian soldiers In thnt
"In tho arrival of the Indian troops at
Marseilles I witnessed the flower of one
of the world's most ancient civilizations
set foot for the first time on the shores
of Europe. 1 have seen proud princes of
India ride nt the head of thousands of
troops, all Inspired with the Intense ar
dor of the East, to help win the battles
of their Emperor.
"The haze that betokens a hot day had
Just begun to lift from the bay of Mar
seilles when suddenly an Interminable
line of steamships crept before the ad
jacent islands.
"The port at once knew that tho long
expected ships with the Indian troops on
board had arrived.
"With admirable precision tho armada
of transports carrying the expeditionary
force swung into the harbor and dropped
anchor. French officers were lost In ad
miration at tho spectacle. It was de
clared on every hand that Great Britain,
of all countries In the world, probably
was the only one capable of carrying out
such a project with complete buccess.
"A each of the transports, dun and
gray In her 'war pnlnt,' glided to her
moorings, the Indian troops poured on
deck, nil anxluus to look upon the strange
land before them.
"Every road within a mile of the docks
soon was flllsd with French, who watched
with Interest tho debarkation of the dark
skinned warriors Hour after hour the
fighting men poured upon the land, glad
for a chance to stretch their legs and feel
the solid earth beneath them after their
long Journey from India.
"The French soldiers crowded around
their Orient il allies nnd began at once
to make them fctl at home. The Indians
grinned In appreciation at the courtesies
Bhown them, their white teeth gleaming
against the brown of their faces.
"The Indians were dressed In khaki,
most of them wearing short trauserB, such
as the Boy Scouts In England wear. Many

Imperial Edict Orders That
Ban on Liquor Continue
After War Peasants
Thrive and Save Money.
PETnOGUAD, Oct.' 1.
The Minister of Finance, P. Bark, has
received an Imperial order to the effect
that the prohibition of the sale of vodka
shall be continued Indefinitely nfter the
end of the war.
This order Is based on the tremendously
Improved condition of the country since
the Emperor Issued the edict prohibiting
traffic In this ltquOr.
Visitors arrived from southern rtussla
buy there Is 'such a change In that region
that the country Is hardly recognizable.
Peasants, who before the war had fallen
Into hopeless Indolence and depravity,
have emerged Into self-respecting citizens.
The effect on character already Is vlslblo
In neatly brushed clothes Instead of form
er ragged and slovenly attire. Huts
which formerly were dilapidated and al
lowed to go Without repairs now are
kept In first-class condition,
The towns have become more ordprly,
and tho peasants indulge In wholesome
amusements. These peoplo now save 63
per cent, of their earnings, which form
irly was spent for vodka, nnd thoy have
increased their earning capacity through
This extra money now Is devoted to
the necessities and comforts of life.
This startling regeneration of the peas
antry Is, In the opinion of the Russian
authorities, likely to have nn Important
effect on the social and economic condi
tions of all Russia,
A change In tho large cities also la
noticeable. Liquor still Is Bold In first
class cafes, but these are practlcalty
empty. The Novsky Prospect, once fa

quiet, without a sign of revelry.
Woman Charged With Killing Her
Husband Is Freed.
HACKENSACK. N. J., Oct. l.-A jury
of young men decided yesterday . that
Mrs. Alice L. Scatou did not kill her
husband, Frederick R. Seaton. who was
found dead In hla home on Elm avenue,
Bogota, Hackcnsack, August 13.
In his charge to the Jury Justice Parker
possibly because of Mrs. Seaton's ad
mission that she was intoxicated when
the actor wns shot to death Intimated
that a verdict of guilty of murder In the
second degree Would placate justice.
Only one Juror went Into tho jury
room believing Mrs. Seaton was guilty.
Ho voted against her three times.. Tho
other 11 got to work on him. but they
consumed one hour nnd a half in con
vincing him that the woman had not
committed the deed.
The Jury's announcement brought no
hysterics from Mrs. Seaton. It brought
somo from women spectators: any ver
dict would have. Mrs. Seaton looked at
the women. Her eyes nnd mouth ex
pressed ennui. She rose, faced the Judge
without a bit of nervousness and said:
"I want to thank every one who has
aided me In my case."
"The court has only done Its duty."
Justice Parker remarked. He thert told
her she was free.
Her sister brought the woman's 3-year-old
child, George Cohan Seaton, "to her
side. She kissed both. They slipped by
the waiting crowd to the Jail. Mrs. Sea
ton took a final look at her cell, told a
matron to send tho few articles of cloth
ing home and. with her boy and her
sister, motored to hr house.
Mrs. Seaton's lawyer In his summing
up, said the name ar,d career of her child
would be stained if she were found
guilty. The prosecutor said she had be
smirched her child by testifying that her
husband had engaged In affairs with
ether women.
