Italian Lover to Keep Pact with
A dramatic scene occurred on tho
French line pier In New York, Just be
fore the steamer La Province left for
Havre. Among the passengers was
Luigi Contranrinl, 34 years of age,
who is bound for his old home In Loc
co, province of Lombardl, Italy, t
keep a suicide pact to die on his sweet
heart's grave.
Antonio Contanrinl, a brother of
the passenger, created a scene and
afterwards told his brother's story- He
said Luigi became betrothed to Jose
phine Bullliinl, a girl in his native
town. Her parents opposed the
match, preferring a wealthier suitor,
and Luigi, with his sweetheart's prom
ise to keep her faith, came to this
country to seek a fortune. He estab
lished himself in Beaver Okla., where
he secured a farm. Then he wrote for
Joseuphlne to come, but she replied
she could not; that her parents for
bade; that she intended to commit
suicide, and that she expected Luigi to
Join her In death. The news that the
girl had carried out her purpose fol
lowed, and Luigi sold his property at
Beaver and started for Italy to kill
himself on the girl's grave. Luigi
sailed on the LaProvlnce.

War on Cat lie lick.
The work of exterminating the cat-'
tie tick In the southern and some of
the western states la progressing satis
factorily, according to a statement by
Secretary Wilson,
Senator's ProU-gc Defeated for Gubrr
natorial Nomination.
Indications are that Gov. Davidson
rarrled the state of Wisconsin In the
primary election Tuesday by about 2
to I over Speaker I. L. Lenroot, of
Superior, who was backed by Senator
La Follette. Although fair weather
prevailed throughout the state, it Is
estimated that only 60 or 70 per cent
of the total vote was out. The greater
part of the voting strength was out fn
the cities, but the country vote was
light, owing to farmers being busy
and many not understanding or caring
about the r.ew primary election law,
which was given Its first test.
One of the surprises of the election
was the strength of W. G. Connor, of
Marshfield, for lieutenant governor.
He ran on the Davidson ticket, and
from returns leads Davidson. Connor
Is a millionaire lumberman, who two
years ago was chairman of the Repub
lican slate central committee. He was
opposed by John Strange, of Neenah,
a wealthy paper manufacturer.
Davidson is serving out the unex
pired third teim of Gov. La Follette,
who resigned to become United States
senator. La Follette espoused the
cause of Speaker Lenroot on the
grounds that Lenroot was an able and
a stronger man than Davidson, and
would conserve and advance the re
form legislation of recent sessions bet
ter. La Follette made a strong cam
paign for Lenroot, making many
speeches a day.
Both Davidson and Lenroot have
been ardent La Follette ..ien In the
paBt. Practically the only issue In
the campaign was the personalities of
the rival candidates, though the Len
root supporters advocated much pro
posed new legislation, such as regu
lation of public service corporation
and Improved primary election and
railroad laws.
Davidson apparently split even on
the half-breed vote and In addition re
ceived practically all of the stalwart
vote. The stalwart press was practi
cally a unit for him.
Working In Davidson's favor was the
prestige of holding office and asking
The nationality question was also
Important as Davidson Is a Norwegian
and, Lenroot a Swede. The Norwe
gian vote of the state Is heavy, but
there Is only a handful of Swedish

Strong Effat to Stop War of Fac
As days end weeks pass with no ap
