Oakland Bee Grower Had Lost
Heavily Through Foul
Brood Route—Has
Large Swarms.
Oakland.—“Foul brood can do a
vast amount of damage in an apiary
In a very short time,” says Simon
Lear, Oakland apiarist, who has suc
ceeded In ridding his colonies of this
disease following advice he received
three years ago from an Ames spe
cialist who came to Pottawattamie
county, to do some special work with
John n. Allison, then county agent
for West Pottawattamie county.
“1 discovered foul brood in my
hives,” said Mr. I^ear in a recent con
versation, “and I heard that t tie
Ames specialist was coming to give
some instructions in bee keeping. I
went to Council Bluffs and visited a
diseased apiary with him and Mr. Al
lison and saw them give the shaking
treatment for foul brood. 1 was the
only beekeeper present, and I asked
them all manner of questions, and
the5r always Iqul a satisfactory answer
for me. Then I came home and went
after my own apiary to get rid of
foul brood."
When foul brood first appeared In
his apiary, Mr. Lear had more than
half a hundred colonies. Before he
could arrest the disease the apiary
had dwindled to six stands. Now he
has built up to 18 very strong healthy
colonies again, and the Increase in
numbers would be more rapid, if Mr.
Lear were not so much in favor of
stronger swarms and fewer hives.
Bees seldom swarm in the Lear
aptary for he tries to control tht-m.
Success In beekeeping does not de
pend entirely upon the number of
colonies In (he bee lot, but mostly on
the strength of the individual hives,
Mr. Lear explains. He alms for comb
honey production alone. When he
desires new queens, he procures them
from Alabama through F. B. Pad

Nebraska Compensation Com
missioner Goes to Supreme
Court to Settle Question
That Bothers.
Lincoln, Neb., Sept. 28 (Special.)—
State Compensation Commissioner
Kennedy has intervened in supreme
court in a controversy between Jack
Frost, injured Lincoln worker, and
a compensation insurance company.
He wants the court to determine
whether he has the power to order
an injured person to submit to an
operation and to deny compensallim
unt'l compliance is had. He also
desires to know, If a person is par
tially permanently disabled In both
legs whether the percentages shall
apply to each kg or to both taken to
gether. i
The district court said an injured
worker- Could not be compelled to go
under the surgeon's knife, and gave
him what amounts to $9 a week
pension for life. He is now but 32.
Mr. Kennedy contends th^t sound
public policy will not justify such re
fusal merely to get a long time pen
sion when a relatively simple opera
tion will restore him to usefulness,
and that in law and morals lin in
jured man should be required to use
all available reasonable means to un
burden society from his support.

Regular Grand Jury Scores
Administration of Palmer for |
Disappearance of Whisky
From Federal Storage.
Universal Service.
Washington, Oct. 3.—Disappearance
of large quantities of seized liquors
from the department of justice during
the administration of A. Mitchell Pal
mer as attorney general, was severe
ly condemned by the regular grand
jury of the district of Columbia su
preme court Monday. *
The grand jury declared that while
testimony before it was insufficient
to warrant Indictment of any persons,
it discloses that the liquors in ques
tion had been disposed of by of
ficers and employes of the depart
ment of justice “with the sanction
and approval of those in higher auth
ority at that time,” namely between
April 4, 1918 and September 11, 1920.
"Such conduct on the part of offi
cers, agents and employes of the gov
ernment, especially those of a depart
ment charged with the administration
of justice, is beyond our comprehen
sion and cannot be too severly con
demned,” the grand Jury report de
Examine 28 Witnesses.
The giand jury examined 28 wit
nesses, including employes of the de
partment of justice and bureau of
Investigation and a few private citi
zens. The investigation reveals that
a large number of trunks, suitcases,
boxes, chests and other forms of bag
gage containing liquor in varying
quantities from a pint to several
gallons, had been seized largely at the
Washington union station by agents
of the department of justice and stor
ed in the department of justice build
ing and rented warehouse space.
From time to time quantities of the
stored liquors were removed, princi
pally between July 29 and September
11, 1920, without proper legal pro
cedure. These liquors, the grand Jury
declared, were appropriated by repre
sentatives of the department of jus
tice to their own use and as gifts to
friends, relatives, physicians and hos
pitals. The poorer grades of bootleg
concoctions unfit to drink were de
stroyed. None was sold, the report
Representatives of the- department
of Justice concerned with the seizure,
storage and disposal of the liquors,
the grand Jury declared, were “sig
nally lax in not conforming the seiz
ure of this liquor by proper legal
process, and also by permitting it’s
disposition as herein before set forth."
Attack Started Recently.
The disappearance of stored liquors
from the custody of the department
of justice was made the subject of
attack a few months ago on the floor
of congresss by Representatives
Woodruff and Johnson at the time
they were waging their fight on At
torney General Daugherty. The pres
ent grand jury investigation is said
to have resulted from that expose to
shift responsibility from the present
administration of the department of
justice. Capt. H. L. Scaife, former
investigator of the department of
Justice, who furnished Representa
tives Woodruff and Johnson with
much of their information some time
ago, wrote District Attorney Peyton
Jordan calling his attention to the
liquor disappearances and offering to
furnish him a copy of a report, giving
names and dates, that he had pre
pared and submitted to the depart
ment on the subject.
The present investigation was car
ried on by the grand jury under Dis
trict Attorney Gordon’s direction.

New Brunswick, N. J., Oct. 1.—
Two men are the target of a state
wide search in connection with the
slaying of the Rev. Edward W. Kali
an d his choir singer, Mrs. Eleanor"
Mills, it became known Sunday
Concerning this phase of the mys
tery which has baffled authorities*
for 16 days, district attorney Striek
er said:
“This new' situation seems to have
better possibilities than anything*,
else that has come into my office
since the murders were discovered.
It is revealed that Just after the
murders and before the bodies were
found, a young man who has long,
been on the suspect list of the New
Brunswick police left town. He was
accompanied by a man who has been*
arrested and convicted as a holdup
man. The second man is a gunman*
who has long been on police lists as:
a dangerous, reckless criminal, cap
able of any crime.
Captain Welnmann, of the state
constabulary, and a number of other
troopers, have been assigned to in
vestigate clues which are daily com
ing from all over the state. They are
buliding their case from the ground''
up and have instructions from Gov
ernor Edwards to “go the limit” to>
clear up the enigma.
Due to certain legal procedure, the
autopsy on the body of Mr. Half
probably will not take place until tho~
middle of the week. As the result of
strenuous objection on the part of
county officials, no member or rep
resentative of the Hall family wil/’
be present at the autopsy.
