The road signs which have guided
people to and from Murdock and
which have attended to the enter
prise rf the city and have been re
newed fr;:n time to time, will be
kept in. good condition, but the work
which has been done by Max Duster
hoff has not been a paying proposi
tion to him as it has cost more than
he has gotten out cf it. He will
continue to keep them up though,
but will not ask any one to assist
in the expense. Any one who de
sires to sear? in this work for the
good of the town can do so, but will
not in the future be asked.

MRS, BER6D8LL HAS
DEFENSE TO OFFER
Says She Wanted Her Sons to Sur
render to Authorities and Sent
Hr. Roiaig to Find Them
Robert Crawford and Horace
Reeves were at Lincoln last Satur
d?y. whero thev drove in Mr. Craw
ford's car and were looking after
rone business matters during the
Philadelphia. Sept. 23. Mrs. Em
ma C. Bergdoll, James E. Romig,
Charles A. Braun. Albert S. Mitchell,
and Harry Schuhm, charged with
conspiring to assist Grover and Erwir.
Bergdoll to evade the draft, testified
today in their trial in the United
States district court. All denied they
had helped the fugitives. Mrs.
Bergdoll, Braun and Romig declared
it would have been easy for the gov
ernment officers to ave found them.
Erwin could be seen almost daily
plowing on his farm in Welaware
county, according to Braun, brother
of the draft dodgers.
Mrs. Bergdcll said Grover lived
here after the armistice was signed
and took her motoring frequently.
"I wanted my boys to surrender,
and I sent Mr. Romig out to find
'hem," she testified. "The govern
ment men were hounding me night
and day, and I did not think they
could be so cruel.'
"When Grover was arrested." Mrs.
Bergdoll continued, "he had been in
our Wynne field house several days
I was going to bring Grover down to
the government men in a few days
after we had fixed up his monjy mat
ters, but the agents came first.
"I never wanted the boys to go
away. I told them to give them
selves up, but they said they wanted
time and they needed a rest.
"That stuff about the 'pot of geld'
was wrong. I and Romig went to
Washington for that gold. It was for
me and not for Grover. It was my
money that was changed. Grover
nor any one else never got a penny
of it. I still have it."
Romig denied he ever told anyone
that after he had exchanged paper
currency at the United States trea
sury. Washington, for $105,000 in
gold he gave it to Grover. "I sup
pose Mrs. Bergdoll wanted tbe gold
because she thought the country was
going bad," he suggested.

tf M's s-w. Manley, Neb.
Albuquerque. N. M., Sept. 23. His
position on the league of nations was
defined in further detail by Governor
Cox, of Ohio, democratic candidate
for president, in an address here to
night to a large audience at the ar
mory. "I favor going on, to put an end
to war for all time," .said the gov
ernor. "This is my position. I am
determined to secure the earliest
possible entrance into the league of
nations with the least possible delay
and with the least possible reserva
tions needed to accomplish that re
sult. The platform adopted by the
convention at which was nominat
ed permits reservations which will
clarify and reassure our people, and
is opposed only to reservations
which would nullify and destroy.
"I have no doubt that republican
and democratic senators alike will
loyally fulfill the people's mandate
which my election will signify. I
shall endeavor to meet all reasonable
desires for proper reservations which
are offered sincerely, and not merely
presented as trumped up for politi
cal purposes. My heart is in this
fight and I will put forth all effort
and make any reasonable concession
to win it, that we may secure mem
bership in the league for America."
Names the "Scouts."
The governor's statement was
made in response to questions in
local republican newspapers, which,
he said he was informed, were in
spired by two advance agents of
Chairman Hays of the republican na
tional committee. These men, named
Headly and Smith, the candidate said
were "Hays' scouts" and endeavoring
to embarrass and minimize his west
ern campaign, traveling a few days
ahoad of the governor's itinerary.
To one of the local newspaper's
cuestion on prohobition. Governor
Cox also reiterated his position, stat
ing: "No liquor association has ever
contributed a dollar to any of my
campaigns in my knowledge, nor
have I ever owned a share of stock
in a brewery. . I would suggest this
question be asked of the reactionary
"The eighteenth amendment is a
part of the constitution. The presi
dent takes an oath to uphold the
constitution and the law. I will not
violate my oath of office, but will
enforce the law as I have done as
the executive of Ohio, where for the
first time in the history of the state,
under my first term, saloons were
closed on the Sabbath."
Governor Cox challenged the news
papers "to get a single direct an
swer on any subject" from Senator
Harding, his republican opponent.
Charges G. 0. P. Evasion
"He has been definite," the gov
ernor continued, "and he has been
consistent on one thing only, his
championship of the cause of big
business and reaction and his 'defer-
J ence and devotion' to the senatorial
"When a political committee en
deavors to kill the news, when it
dares not meet the issue on which
its candidate wobbles from day to
day, when it seeks to secure the
presidency by use of a huge corrup
tion fund, it is time for the people
to think seriously. I am going back
east after my visit in the west, car
rying this assurance to friends and
foes the west is alive, the west is
alert, and the west is with me in

and the progress and peace of our

The league of nations, reclamation
and labor were prominent themes of
the governor's address, his only im
portant address in New Mexico.
Beside, the broader aspects of the
league, the governor speaking to a
large crowd at the armory and pre
senting the league as an achieve
ment of American soldiers and a bond
with the allies, emphasized local in
terests in world stability to open
markets for local products. The gov
ernov s'so reiterated that money
saved by disarmament would be avail
