Argues Against Recall of the
Strike Set For Next
Cleveland, Ohio, Sept. 17. The
convention of the United Mine Work
ers of America has disused of the
Illinois strike problem, refusing seats
to the contesting delegates by a vote
of almost eight to one and thereby
sustaining the action of international
and state mine officials in depriving
twenty-five Illinois local unions of
their charters for indulging in un
authorized strikes. The vote was
taken after a two days' debate.
John Fitzpatrick. chairman of the
national committee for organizing
Terrifying Itching Causes
Continuous Torture
Do you sometimes feel like
you will scream if you do not
get relief from the tormenting
and terrifying itching and irri
tating burning that makes you
feel like your very skin is
Possibly your disorder has
not reached the torturing stage
as yet, but there are thousands
of victims of skin diseases that
know too well the almost
unendurable pain that comes
from eruptions, irritations,
pimples, boils, ulcers, eczema,
psoryasis, carbuncles and the
numerous other forms of tor
ment that attack the delicate
tissues of the skin.
The only proper method of
treatment for any disease, is a
remedy that will reach its
source, that will remove its
cause, and not simply palliate
its symptoms. Many forms of
skin ailment come from a col
ony of millions upon millions
of tiny disease germs that in
fest the blood. Naturally, then,
these germs must be eradicat
ed from the blood before a
cure can be expected.
You know well enough that
you cannot reach the blood by

the iron and steel workers, and
"Mother" Jones, the aged mine
worker representative, appealed to
to the convention to support the steel
workers in the projected steel strike.
"Mother" Jones argued openly
against any postponement, telling the
miners to pay no attention to con
trary reports, because the strike
would come oft as arranged next
Monday. Recall of the strike call,
she declared, would wreck the con
fidence of the steeel workers in their
Mr. Fitzpatrick refrained from
mentioning tfee question of possible
postponement, except indirectly, in
his speech, but in conversation with
delegates he declared himself firmly
opposed to postponement of the
walkout beyond Monday as weaken
ing the chances of success.
Discussion of resolutions are to
be resumed to-day. The chairman
announced that among those sub
mitted was one demanding the resig
nation of Postmaster General Burle
son. whose administration of the
telephone service was sharply criti
cised by an organizer of the tele
phone girls' union at the afternoon
applying lotions, ointments
salves, washes and other local
applications to the surface of
the skin. So when you use such
treatment for your tormenting
skin diseases the most you can
expect is a temporary discon
tinuance of the pain, which
promptly returns, and keeps
you constantly applying the
local remedies, making no pro
gress whatever toward per
manently ridding yourself of
the disease.
Why longer continue such
makeshift treatment? Go to
your drugstore to-day and get
a bottle of S. S. S., the reliable
blood purifier, and begin a
treatment thjjt will prove sat
isfactory, as it has to thousands
of others who were afflicted
just as you have been. S. S. S.
has been used for more than
fifty years, so that you are not
experimenting when you take
it. It will counteract the germs
that attack the skin, and its
tonic properties will build up
the general health.
Don't continue to suffer, but
begin taking S. S. S. to-day,
and write our head physician,
who will give you full instruc
tions about your own case.

Rear Admiral Sir Reginald Hall,

credit on the Industry."

Mexican Department of In

Mexico City, Sept, 17.—The De

merce denies emphatically tjiat
Japanese interests have acquired any
petroleum holdings in Mexico, but
says parties of Japanese geologists
have visited the republic recently
on a tour of exploration and have lo
cated oil deposits on the Pacific
The departmental denial came as
the result of stories emanating from
the United States that Japanese
capitalists were negotiating for the
transfer of large petroleum holdings
in the Tantpico district.
El Monitor recently interviewed
a Japanese, R. E. Douari, who was
sent to bo a member of the oriental
exploration party. He asserted that
the Pacific Coast had been thor
oughly covered in the search for oil
and that large deposits of the lat
ter had bean found. He also assert
ed that Japan needs Mexican oil for
commercial purposes and will at
tempt to acquire that product, but
it has no intention of buying leases,
developed or undeveloped, on the
Atlantic Coast.

From English Promoter

English sportsmen eager to stage a
Beckett-Dempsey match in London
next April, yesterday made an offer
to Jack Kearns, manager of the
champion, of $150,000, to be divid
ed on a winner and loser basis.
Kearns replied that he would not
sign any agreement till the Beckett-
Carpenter bout had taken place.
Barry offered to wager 4 to 1
that Beckett would stop Carpentier
in a few rounds, but Kearns refused
to change his decision.

Record-breaking crowds hailed the

At the Victoria niance" at the Vic

Yesterday the crowds were slightly
larger than Monday's and to-day's

Starting to-morrow at the Colonial,
H B Warner will be shown in a
wonderful dramatic picture. "The Fa-
I gan God," the story of an American
secret service man who was sent to

a religious play, however, but an un
usually strong drama.

At the Regent mtrers, is leading wo
man for Bryant Wash

Miss Mason's work is distinguished
by a piquancy that never fails to
please audiences and she is without
doubt one of the most popular of all
the younger Players.
"Putting It Over' is a light com
edv drama in which Mr. Washburn
has the role of a good-natured hick
with big town ambitions. No one is
auite so successful at deptcting char
acters of this sort as Mr. .Washburn
and as the story is clever and orig

"Some Time" is the work of Rida

Rida Johnson Young is credited in
"Some Time" with a bright and snap

considered one of the most sensa

light musicnl composition in the his
tory of the American stage. His
meiody, "Some Time," the motif song
is of the compeling kind that never
leaves the memory, but breaks out
frequenty in whistling and humni'ng.
The love song, "Beautiful Night,

makes it a classic, while "Picking

tires of recent years.
