Des Moines, la., July 4. It is not
probable that Attorney General I lav
ner will attempt to stop the mass
meeting announced by Detective N. J.
Wilkerson to be held in Omaha Satur
day evening. It has been announced
that a special train will run from
Villisca and that in all about 1,000
people will go from the towns inter
The state department of justice,
however, states that any criticism of
officials which Wilkerson may make
in his Omaha speech will be used
against him if he is cited for contempt
of the injunction issued at Red Oak
last Saturday, in which he was re
strained from holding a public meet
ing in that city.
The preliminary hearing on the con
spiracy charge against Wilkerson will
be held Monday at Corning. It is ex
pected that Wilkerson will waive t(
tne grand jury. The attorney
eral's office is now getting its
dence in shape for the hearing.

spy in the employ of the German gov

their investigation had satisfied them
that recent strikes and agitation of
the Industrial Workers of the World
in the anthracite coal regions had been
stirred up by German agents with
the hope of lessening the power of
the United States in the war by de
creasing coal production. Graber, who
was taken into custody by United
States Marshal James S. McGee, was
held without bail under the alien

is a simple attachment to go on Fords (or other cars) to con
vert them into practical tractors.
The price of the attachment is $145 on Fords, much
cheaper than any other similar attachment.
The Pullford will do the work of four horses and does not
eat when it is not working. If you could buy four good
horses for $145 you'd think they were mighty cheap.
For practical work on the average farm the Pullford is the
very best investment the farmer can make.
It will pull your binder, do your plowing, discing, harrow
ing, pull your manure spreader, haul your heavily loaded
wagons to town; in fact, it will do about all the work your
horses will do except planting and cultivating your corn.
The Pullford will pull any load that your two best teams
will pull and do it easy.
We will demonstrate the Pullford in a few days. Watch
the Plattsmouth Journal for the Notice.
Please write or call on us for a demonstration.
