Large Crowd Present "at Eagles Hall
to See Training Bouts McCar
thy to Finish in Omaha.
There was a large crowd present
at the Eagles hall last night to wit
ness the training work-outs and all
were well pleased with the action
of the contestants.
Big Jack McCarthy, the Portland
heavyweight, let himself out a little
more than the first night, and al
though he "pulled" his jabs, several
blows landed with considerable force
upon Smetana, who went several fast
rounds with the big boy. '"Smert"
absorbed them nicely, however, and
came up smiling for more. This
morning following his road work,
McCarthy journeyed into Omaha, at
which place he will train at the
Orpheum gymnasium today and to
morrow meeting some of the heavy
weight sparring partners of the me
tropolis. Those interested in seeing
him work will find him at the Or
pneum gym tomorrow afternoon!
The skill and speed showed by
Frank Schmarder in wrestling with
hi3 various opponents last night in
dicates clearly that he is in tip-top
condition and prepared to give Mr.
Moormeier, who hails from Cortland,
Nebraska, one of the hardest tussels
of his career on the mat.
While the show was on at the
Eagles hall, Frank Blotzer was busy
working out with Ermin Galloway in
preparation for his bout with Sme
tana as the curtain raiser of the
Legion's big show Tuesday night.
Confusion to Voters Will Besult if
His Name Appears Twice For
The Same Office.
Wilber W. Anness of Dunbar, can
didate for the Reavis succession in
the First congressional district,
withdrew his name Friday afternoon
as a candidate ior ine snori term,
from the November election until
March 4th. A few hours before, Wal
ter L. Anderson of Lincoln had set
the example.
Mr. Anness said that he had filed
for the vacancy against his better
judgment and only because all the
other candidates for the regular term
had done so. He says that, like Mr.
Anderson, he doesn't believe that
Lower interest on
Farm Loans!
Perhaps you have a mortgage against your place.
Maybe it is not due yet, but probably have an option
or right to pay the loan in full when you pay the
next interest.
If you are paying more than SVlo now, don't wait for
the loan to become due, but see me about a new
loan before the next interest paying date.

C. E. Wescott's
election officials ought to be asked to
overlook a violation of the letter of
the law which says that no man's
name shall appear on the same bal
lot twice. He doesn't think the leg
islature had this in mind when they
passed the law, which was to prevent
candidate from profiting by fusion
Mr. Anness is also of the opinion
that it isn't fair to the voters to ask
them to exercise the unusual degree
of care necessary to cast an intelli
gent vote where one man is running
for two offices on the same primary
ballot. While in most cases the vot
ers will understand the situation well
enough to exercise their right of
choice as they wish to do, there
would be many others who wquld
lose their vote in one instance or the
other, since all cannot be presumed
to know why the names are there
The candidates stand to lose also
by thi3 duplication, as many sup
porters would doubtless think they
had done their full duty- to their(
friend when they put an X opposite
his name once.

Law Eelative to the Adjustment of
Lenses Seems to be Overlook
ed in Many Instances.
A number of the drivers of autos
hava been complaining of the fact
that the lights on cars which have
been placed in service under the law
of the last legislature, are not work
ing as satisfactory as they should,
owing to the fact that the lights are
out of adjustment and shining with
all the brightness of old. 1
The law says that the light from
the lamps on the cars should strike
the highway at an angle that would
eliminate the light shining in the
face of the driver of another car ap
proaching, thereby curbing what ha3
been the cause of many accidents
and annoyances in driving.
Each auto owner was required to
have their car equipped with new
lenses to comply with the law, but
from all reports this has not worked
as satisfactory as it should, owing to
the fact that many of the lights are
out of adjustment and the rays shine
not only on the highway but blind
ingly in the face of the drivers of
other cars.
This is a matter that should ba
looked into if the intent of the law
13 to be carried out, as the lights if
not properly adjusted are as annoy
ing as the ones in use prior to the
enactment of the recent law.

Survey of Phelps, Kearney and Adams
Counties to Determine Feasi
bility of Irrigation.
Washington, June 23. Senator
Norris and Representative Andrews
of the Fifth Nebraska district, intro
duced In their respective houses to
day joint resolutions authorizing the
secretary of the interior to make a
survey of Phelps, Kearney and
Adams counties to ascertain whether
it is practicable to convey for irri
gation purposes flood waters from
the Platte river onto the lands of
the counties. The resolution ap
propriates $5,000 for the survey.
The interior department advised
the delegates of the central Nebras
ka supplemental water association,
consisting of Messrs. George E. John
son, of Lincoln; McConaughy of
Holdrege, Griggs of Hastings and
Kingsley of Minden, that it would
gladly make the survey if congress
would appropriate for the necessary
expense involved.
Accompanied by Representative
Andrews the delegates today inter
viewed Senator Norri3, Representa
tives Mondell and Klnkaid, as well
as several members of irrigation
committees of both houses in rela
tion to the proposition. They ex
plained that this proposition differs
from the ordinary irrigation project
in that all of this land, consisting of
500,000 acres, is under cultivation
and farmers living upon it; that it
is composed of the best soil in Ne
braska, but due to lack of moisture
the fertility of this soil is gradually
suffering depletion until now only
one-third of a normal crop can be
produced. The Nebraska department
of public works, Mr. Johnson de
clared, is agreed that no fertilizer
will remedy the insufficient rainfall,
which has become chronic.
By flooding these lands when the
Platte river is high the water would
soak into the sub-soil, thus making
nature furnish its own-reservoir, in
stead of constructing expensive con
tainers at government expense.
If the experiment works for these
counties, the ditches would be ex
tended to other counties of the state,
as the farmers to be benefitted might
desire. , .
Secretary of Agriculture Wallace
today had a conference with commis
sion men dealing with livestock pro
ducts In the middle-west and gently
hinted to them that their commis
sion charges should be pared, down
now that farm products were re
duced. He will make further in
vestigations in several cities, Omaha
being included. j
The installation of new lighting

much to the handsome interior of
the Thierolf store that is a real city
clothing shop in every sense of the
term. ,
Los Angeles, June 23. Bebe Dan
iels, motion picture actress, who was
arrested in Glendale, a suburb of
Los Angeles, for . violation of the
speed ordinance, today was fined $15
by Justice S. H. Lowe. Miss Daniels
did not appear in court, nor did her
chauffer, who was said to have been
driving the car when she was arrest
ed. A representative of the automo
bile club of southern California ap
peared for her and paid the fine.
Charles Boedeker, accompanied by
his son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and
Mrs. Glen Boedeker and little daugh
ter. Flora Jane, of Murray, drove up
Sunday to spend the day with Mr.
Boedeker's sister, Mrs. Philip Kahler
and family. Mr. Boedeker's daugh
ter, Mrs. Howard Hutchman, of Kan
sas City, Kansas, who is visiting
her father and other relatives and
friends at Murray, accompanied them
to Louisville. Her husband is a
Presbyterian minister in Kansas City
and when she returns to her home,
she and her husband will go to
Colorado Springs for their summer's
outing. While here, the visitors had
the pleasure of going over the new
home of Mr. and Mrs. Kahler which
is now under erection and were de
lighted with the arrangement of
everything and complimented Mrs.
Kahler highly upon her plans, as
she designed the house almost en
tirely by herself. Louisville Courier.

First Shots Fired by Strikebreakers,
Says Union Official Sheriff
Refused to Call Troops.
Herrin, 111., June 23. Attempts to
sift through the maze of rumor3, re
rorts, contradictions and facts of the
mine war to obtain an uncolored ac
count of the events leading up to it
after everything was quiet, brought)
two authentic reviews of the affair,
one from a union official and anoth
er from a state, military official.
Hush Willis, district board mem
ber of the miners' union, in the first
statement from union officials con
cerning the massacre, told newspaper
reporters the blame lay squarely on
the coal operators, who imported
c r 1hrAo L'opc
He declared that the first shots
were fired by the strikebreakers and
that these shots were without provo
cation, and that one of the chief
causes of the trouble was the high
handed manner in which the import
ed workers "held up private citizens
and refused to let them traverse the
public highway by the mine
made no attempt to deny that the;
affair really was a massacre, but in
sisted it was not started by the
Refused State Aid
Col. Samuel Hunter, of the state
adjutant general's office reviewed his
oniciai investigation oi uie uisasier,
the following being the salient points;
of his report:
That Col. Hunter on half a dozen
occasions asked Sheriff Thaxton and
other local county officials, if they
wanted troops sent here but was told
each time even after the fighting
started that the local authorities
could handle the matter.
That he urged the mine officials to
close to avert a disaster, but the re
quest was refused.
That an indignation meeting of
600 miners was held just outside
Herrin the day the fighting began.
That he persuaded the besieged
workers to run up a white flag and
obtain consent from miner officials
for a truce, but that this truce was
broken; by whom he did not know.
Both reports termed the armed
guards at the mine "gunmen."
Mr. Willis' version follows in
part: 1
"The Southern Illinois Coal com
pany has been running this mine
about a year. When work was sus
pended on April 1, it was agreed by
the mine union board members end
the operators that stripping of dirti
should be allowed, but that- no coal
was to be loaded for industrial pur
poses. Decided to Sell
"After six weeks of stripping the
company informed me by letter that
they would no longer recognize the
agreement and that they wanted to
load and ship coal for industrial pur
poses. I told them I could not give
permission for this.
"Ten days later Mr. Lester, owner
of the mine, asked me to set aside
the agreement. I told him I could
not repudiate it. He said that unless
I repudiated he would open the mine,
even if he had to repudiate his agree
ment. "Lester said his company was in
bad financial straits and that he
could not overlook a chance like this !
to make a financial cleanup. He said j
he did not regard his contract with
us as meaning anything, when het
could make a lot of money by it. ;
This statement was made to me when
he knew the government had offici
ally said there would be no profiteer
ing in coal because of the strike.

Three thousand Nebraska women
have received a letter signed by a
group cf their leaders asking them to
circulate petitions. This letter says
in part:
"This measure which we are init
