Visit of Premier
Renews Hope for

Waihington, July 16. (Special
Telfgrim) The perional visit which
Premier MacKemie King of Canado
made to Washington lait wcrk hat
incrtaied the possibility of the St.
Lawrence-Great Lakct waterway!
project. Premier King gave little
prominence to this Question in his
public utterances, at well as to the
precedent established by him of hav
ing Canada deal directly with the
government at Washington, rather
than through the British embassy
He put the renewal of the Rush
Bagot treaty governing the relative
armaments to be maintained on the
Great Lakes, to the fore.
But underneath this was the real
interest which he ii credited with
having in the St. Lawrence project
The fact that he undertook to deal
directly with Washington speaks for
ittelt concerning the Canadian at
titude on having a resident Canadian
minister located in the American
capital.- . .
Western men interested in the St
Lawrence project diccussed the mat
ter with the premier. Senator Kel
lot-? of Minnesota save him a din
ner to which western senators and
representatives were invited. Over
the dinner table and while the ci
gars were being smoked the St Law
rence project was informally discussed.
What the premier may have said
has not been repeated, but it is un
derstood that he made it plain hit
. . ii. .
refusal to take up ine negotiation 01
a treaty which would make the proj
ect feasible did not indicate opposi
tion to the project itself. It is the
premier's belief, as understood here,
that the time is not quite ripe, and
that it would be better for public
opinion to digest' the problem more
completely before running into oppo
sition that already exists here and
in Canada In some quarters..
The western senators made it
plain to Premier King that they re
gard the St Lawrence project as of
great importance to the middle west,
ern states. The belief which western
men entertain concerning the future
of the Mississippi valley was un
folded to him. He was told of the
hope which western men have that

and that it feels it must become self

night be turned into the finished
product in the west itself.
The accomplishment of this hope
depends, he was told, upon having
cheap water transportation and it
was claimed that failure to use the

Oats Harvest in Swing at
Bloomfield; Straw Short
Bloom field, Neb., July 17. (Spe
cial.) The oats harvest is in full
swing here. The straw is very short
but many fields are well headed out.
The second cutting of alfalfa is being
made and is laid to be a trifle better
than the first crop. Corn is making
a nice growth. Roads in this section
are in tine shape.
The popularity of the radio re
reiving set hat caused a great many
people to become interested in thi
iacinating pastime, with great vary
in? reuh. Some of their ptrpli
have hern more or lest furnliar with
electricity and hwdy with tooM, hut
the big majority ot Hum do not even
care to learn tne Kcmeiitary prut
cinlrs of the same.
The layman sce.iu t i think that
all that is necessary ii to connect
the set up, and it will gladly do the
work. A little experimenting; rIopr
well thought-out liiiM may ena'.'le
the befiiniirr to re;i!ly improve the
strcneth of the receive.! iK.nil. If
the experimenting it done haphazard'
Iv. thouKh. it may result in the com
plctc rum of the set.
If a comnle'e ut is purchased -.he
best thing that the toyman can do
is to leave inc set iisc.i mi;i.uj .uunt.
In a case of this kind t.ie best pro
cedure to follow is to try to improve
the aerial or the ground. Keep both
of these leads as dirtct and as snor;
as possible, and be sure that all the
joints are soldered, in aerial
far more than a wire strung up on
the roof, as any radio man will tell
you. The multi wire aerial it, of
course, a waste of time and money
to erect, as the single wire aerial
cannot be beaten for receiving.
The cruond lead is also an impor
tant item in the set. Some amateurs
are using several different grounds
for this purpose. They may have a
wire connected to the cold water
pipe, the gas pipe, and the radiator.
All of these grounds working to
gether may do very well, or they
may not work at all.
In general there are only a few
makes of vacuum tubes on the mar
ket at the present time, but there is
vast difference in their working
abilities, lubes used for receiving
may be generally divided into two
classes, those used for detector and
those used for amplifiers. 1 he latter
tubes are known as hard tubes
and are exhausted to a very high
degree, while the former, or detector
bulb, usually has some small amount
of gas left in it. Experience has
taught the radio engineers that the
tubes will work best this way.
It the beginner has purchased a
set containing a two-step amplifier,
he may find that the set may be
greatly improved by shifting the
amplifier tubes about. It may be
found by experimenting that the
tubes used in the first step will work
much better in the second step. This
is caused by the slight difference in
the making of the tubes. This will
not always work, but it very fre
quently happens that, changing the
tubes about in this wtyjWll make a
big difference in the strength of the

Backwoods Couple Travel
With Old Prairie Schooner
Vermillion, S. D., July 17. (Spe
cial.) "T'ell with the automobiles;
this is the only way to travel, any
how," was the assertion of a woman,
who was one of the occupants of the
most unique traveling outfit which
has been seen in Vermillion this sum
The outfit consisted of a crude
prairie schooner" to which two
scrawny ponies were attached, these
being driven by a man and his wife
who evidently were just returning; to
civilization after having been housed
in the backwoods or having indulged
in a Kip van Winkle vacation. At
they stopped at a water fountain in
the business district a curious crowd
gathered. As the outfit moved on the
woman stuck her head out from be
hind the flapping sides of the wagon

Topeka. Kan., July 17. More than
50 alleged members of the I. W.
V. are now in Kansas jails as a re
sult of the drive against the organ

cal authorities when the present har
vest season began. These men are
being held in county jails at Hutch

The fire marshal said that I. V,
W. workers are not moving in large
numbers as in previous years. Where
allleged groups of as high as 200
were found moving across the coun
try in previous years, he said, small
bands of usually less than 10 are
reported this season. Freight trains
carrying large numbers ot men go
ing to and from the harvest are be
ing "worked" by organizers of the
I. W. W., reports indicate, but when
such reports come in officers are im
mediately dispatched to the scene to
make investigations and more ar
rests. The fire marshal displayed a stack
of little Dhosoorus phials, collected
by his force from the pockets of men
taken into custody. These glass
tubes, known as "kitties," are about
two and a half inches long and the
size of an ordinary pencil. One end
is capped with a brass knob, which
is easily removed, disclosing a thin
layer of paraffin. This gum, when
the tube is stuck in a shock or stack
of grain, melts quickly and ,the con
tents of the phial flame immediately
the air strikes it. The other end of
the tube holds a diminutive magnify

Two Stores and Carage
Robbed in Twin Brooks
Twin Brooks, S. D., July 17. (Spe
cial.) No trace can be found of
bandits who within a period of an
hour or two entered two Twin Brooks
stores and a garage. At the garage
they secured a small amount of
money. From the store they carried
away a great deal of loot, including
shoes and stockings. In one of the
stores they practically wrecked the
safe during an unsuccessful attempt
to break it open. The bandits with
out doubt had an auto in which to
carry away the loot and by the time
the robberies were discovered may
have been miles away.
