000 or More This Year.
Washington, Oct. 16.-Naval ap-
propriations are likely to break rec-

congress. This became known today
in connection with the announcement
that the house naval committee, fore-
seeing a vast amount of work ahead,
will meet November 2, to begin con-
sideration of the naval bill.

the appropriations, unless the "little
navy" members slaughter the bill, will
mount up to $330,000,000 or more.
The navy department is now working
on the estimate. The bill of last ses-
slo4 carried $313,000,000.

department, who for the past two years
has been the director of the Cercle

for his retirement. A new director

the club's program for the year, which,
besides the usual list of faculty lec-
tures, will include two plays. One
will be given shortly before the Christ-

presented in April. The program of
faculty lectures will not be ready for
publication until after the election of
a new director for the club.

ing next Monday night, at which the
annual fall elections of the club will

W. Stewart, chairman of the Prohibi-
tion campaign committee, will arrive
this morning at 8:15 o'clock on the
Prohibition special train, enabling the
candidates to address the people at
the Michigan Central depot.
Considerable attention has been 5at-
tracted by the speeches of the can-
didates, who are attacking Woodrow
Wilson and Judge Hughes vigorously.
Democrats and Republicans have
turned out in great numbers to hear
what the Prohibitionists say about
Hanly has the distinction of being
one of the last of the "log cabin can-
didates," being born in a log cabin,
struggling hard in early life, and fight-
ing his way through difficulties to a
plane of power in the Republican party
and serving the people of Indiana for
several years as congressman and
Landrith is a southern statesman,
educator, editor, orator, and political
leader of national and international
reputation, sacrificing several hundred
dollars a week, because he believes in
the Prohibition cause. The editor is
one of the founders and held the posi-
tion of secretary for many years of the
Tennessee Anti-saloon league.
The Hanly-Landrith special will
visit more than 500 important towns
and cities throughout they United
States before election day. The tour,
which will probably excell any similar
tours by the Republicans or Demo-
crats, and which will eclipse all. past
Prohibition party campaigning, was
made possible through the efforts of
the Prohibition pioneer, Oliver W.
Stewart, of Chicago, and his co-
workers. The local visit was arranged
through supporters of the Prohibition
candidates in this section. The party
will leave here for Jackson, Mich.,
where a monstrous mass meeting is

point system" was the essence of an
address given by Miss Ida M. Evans
to nearly 200 women at Sarah Caswell

ing by frequent cheers led by Olga

Before an audience of nearly 400,
Dean William Draper Lewis of the
University of Pennsylvania law school
last night addressed the Michigan Re-
publican club at the Union. Dean
Lewis explained his reasons for leav-
ing the Progressive party, of which
he was formerly a prominent member,
and his reasons for advocating the
election of Hughes for president.
He recited in detail the Republican
charges of the failure of Wilson in
handling the Mexican situation, ,the
Lusitania incident, and the Adamson
bill, the three problems that he con-
sidered the most vital and important
that the present administration had
dealt with. Each of the problems were
considered with special reference to
what Mr. Lewis characterized as "the
inability of the president to meet a
strong executive situation."
The meeting was enlivened by the
invitation of Mr. Lewis at the begin-
ning of his speech that his hearer ask
any questions that touched on the
present campaign, and his promise to
answer them to the best of his ability.
During the course of his address, Mr.
Lewis was obliged to go into the Pana-
ma tolls act, the Danbury hatters case,
the U-53 controversy, British censor-
ship of the mails, the Columbia in-
demnification bill, and several others.
