San Francisco, Cal., May 30. The
claim that the selective draft passed
by congress, May 17, violates the fed
eral constitutional provisions prohib
iting "slavery and involuntary servi
tude," advanced by Ferdinand Claud
ius of Oakland, Cal., was character
ized by the state supreme court today
as "utterly without merit."
Claudius applied today for the
second time for a writ of prohibition
to prevent Mayor John L. Davie of
Oakland from compelling him to reg
ister for the draft on June 5. Claudius
declared he would appeal to the United
States supreme court.

Don't Blame the Stomach!
In many cases of indigestion the
stomach must be acquitted of all
blame. Many people devour food with
out any attempt of mastication and
such hasty swallowers are the real
inciters of gastric rebellion. It is a
very bad habit, but we must reckon
with it and look for a sure corrective.
Triner's American Elixir gives a
quick relief. This remedy cleans out
the bowels; restores appetite and aids
digestion. If you suffer from con
stipation, flatulence, headache, nerv

This noon the directors of the Com

uneheon at the Hotel Riley to discuss
the plans for the chautauqua which
is to be held in this city for six days,
commencing June 28. The directors
had with them Mr. A. J. Dunlap, of
Lincoln, representing the chautauqua
association, and who explained in de
tail the work of the chautauqua rnd
the proper means of proceeding with
the work. The ticckets and other
material for advertising the forth
coming chautauqua are now at hand
and will be at once used in the cam

Washington, D. C, May 30. Attor
ney General Gregory today instructed
United States attorneys and marshalls
throughout the country to use their
utmost efforts to arrest and prosecute
all persons responsible for the agita
tion which has manifested itself in
localities from New England to Texas
against the registration June 5, of
men subject to selective draft.
This agitation has made itself felt
somewhat in many sections, but thus
far there apparently is little connec
tion between the outbreaks. Officials
have undertaken an exhaustive in
vestigation to determine if the whole
anti-draft sentiment is not rooted in
extensive machinations of German
propagandists in this country having
a central headquarters.
Expects 100 Per Cent Registration
Color to this theory is lent in some
degree by the marked similarity in
the methods of procedure in widely
separated communities. Some offi
cials believe that the entire agitation
is manufactured by German agents
who, baffled in their original program
calling for an armed uprising of Ger
man reservists in this country upon
America's entry into the war, have
turned their energies to this method
of hindering the military plans of the
If such is the case the conspiracy
will come to nothing, officials believe
The department of justice, it was au
thoritatively announced tonight ex
pects virtually 100 per cent of eligibles
to register and prompt prosecution un
der the criminal provisions of the law
will be instituted in the few cases
where the law is not observed.
All Asked to Report Slackers.
To bring out the full registration
Attorney General Gregory today in
vited the entire nation to constitute
itself a committee of the whole and
every man of military age a commit
tee of one to report slackers.
"Attorney General Gregory invites
all young men of the country to co
operate in the enforcement of law as
a part of their patriotic duty," reads
an official statement.
"Determined ,to crush in incipiency
every movement designed to thwart
or interfere with registration, as pro
vided for in the law, the department
is having its officers throughout the
country arrest promptly all agitators
against compliance with the law.

"The department is not dependent
entirely upon its agencies to discover
disloyal activity. State and municipa
police are co-operating and members
of national patriotic and commercia
organizations, which were enlisted aft

to guard against all acts inimical to
the general welfare are engaged in
bringing to the attention of the United
States attorneys and marshals all in
