TRIED TO KILL
D. STEPHENS OF CALIFORNIA
WAS UNINJURED BY AN
Dynamite Set Off Under a Corner
Partly Wrecked the Executive
Mansion Blame Ger
Sacramento, Cal.. Dec. 18. An at
tempt to dynamite the governor's
mansion and kill Governor William
D. Stephens and his wife was made
early today, when a charge of ex
plosives was set off in the southwest
wall of the building.
The rear porch was blown off and
a large hole was torn in the brick
work of the building. -Although
Governor' Stephens, his wife and ser
vants were asleep in the upper floor
of the building, no one was injured
and the damage was confined to the
exterior wall of the building.
Blame Pro-German Agents.
Pro-German agents o rsympathiz-
ers are blamed by the police for the
outrage. Governor Stephens return
ed only last night from Los Angeles,
where he had delivered an address in
which he advocated sterner methods
in suppressing enemy agents and
The principal clew on which the
entire force of Sacramento is work
ing was furnished by the Rev. Frazer
Langford, a Baptist minister, living
in the vicinity. He says thai; for
Siveral months he has seen a map.
x!mm he believes to be a German,
hilling in the vicinity of the gov
ern, r's mansion and apparently cs
hiistning its construction. This man,
he wild, vanished less than a week
ago, end the Rev. Mr. LangfoM be
lieves he was responsible.
The police rounded up a number
of suspicious persons, but have not
yet found the man wanted. Gover
nor Stephens was calm immediately
after the explosion, and assisted the
police in their investigation.
No Threatening Leters to Governor.
"I am grateful that the affair was
not more serious," he said. "The rea
son for the crime is a complete mys
tery to me, as I have received no
threatening letters of any kind. Per
sonally, I believe the bomb was
thrown from the alleyway at the

rear of the house, after the watch
man had passed on his rounds."
The police, however, do not agree
with this theory. They believe the
bomb was of clockwork variety and
was timed to explode shortly after
midnight. They believe more than
a dozen sticks of dynamite were in
The explosion shattered windows
in the house and in residences for
several blocks around, breaking
bric-a-brac and dishes.
ARE PLACING A CEMENT FLOOR.
From Wednesday's Dally.
A large force of workmen are en
gaged at the Pollock new building
which is in course of construction,
placing the cement floor in the
north half of the main floor. This
process of reinforced concrete is
another step in rendering the struc
ture fireproof, and adding to the
strength and prominence as well.
The workmen are sure making rap
id progress in the laying of this
floor, and are using the good weath
er to the limit. With but a little
more of this weather and they will
have the north half or north portion
of the floor in place. Carpenters are
hastening the preparation of the
forms for the south portion and will
be ready for that in a short time
should the weather continue favorable.
GATHER YOUR SEED CORN
WHILE YOU CAN
From Wednesday's Dally.
This is a matter of imperative Im
portance and should be attended to
From inquiries by and reports
made to the State Council of De
fense and Investigations conducted
through the Agricultural College
and Extension Departments of the
State University it appears that the
seed corn situation in Nebraska is the
most serious in the history of the
State. ' The retarded maturing of the
corn crop and the severe frosts
which caught the corn ears with an
unusual amount of moisture in them
killed or severely injured the seed
germs so as to render a very large
per cent of the ears useless for seed
purposes. These reports come from
all over the corn growing sctlons of
the state. .
It is, therefore, most imperative
that at once every precaution be
taken ' and provision be made that
every bushel of corn suitable for
seed shall be saved, and care be tak
en to dry out as quickly as possible
seed ears which you may now have
an excess of moisture in them so
that when the severe cold of winter
comes further deterioration shall
not take place. Also, that all stocks
of old corn be carefully saved for
seed, and those who cut up corn be
fore the frost came shall preserve
the ears for seed purposes, for, not
only is Nebraska faced with this ser
ious question, but a number of other
states are reported by government
officials to the State Council as not
having matured any seed corn at all
It is, therefore, not only an econo
mic necessity, but a patriotic duty
devolving upon the citizens of Ne
braska to provide for the seed corn
needs of our state, and also, if poss
ible, contribute to the outside demand.
WINDOW WITH STRIK
From Wednesday's Dally.
Looking at the window of Win.
Holly, the clothier, we see the only

features make the window striking
in appearance, and " challenges at
tention. The window besides con
tains a dressing of the goods which
he sells, composed of clothing furn
ishings, and withv predominance of
sweaters,' as well as shoess.

for them. Beans were selling at six
cents per pound.
