Worst in State
Inspector After Tour of State
Says Only Hands Needed
to Escape Prison.
Lincoln, Aug. 30. (Special.) Lin
coln, advertised as the center of cul
ture, humanarianism and educational
arts and sciences, has the worst
county jail in the state o'f Ne
braska. " '
This was the statement made to
day by Richard Fulton of Beatrice,
who, under supervision of H. H.
Antics, secretary department of pub
lic welfare, has been inspecting city
and county jails in compliance with
a state law calling for annual in
spections. With your bare hands you can go
to the Lancaster county jail and dig
a hole through the wall," Fulton
said. "This condition, while not
costly to the county, is costly to the
state r large.
For instance, 11 men made a
wholesale delivery from the jail last
vear. I he cost or recapturing them
fell on the state for the most part
and ran into big money.
Neither is the jail any better from
a sanitary point. The stone floor is
so old that when one steps on it the
stones sag into the damp ground un
derneath." Kinney Store Roldied.

Start Delayed hy Unfavoraldc
Ice Conditions Plana to
Make Attempt Next
Nome, Alaska, Aug. 29. (By A.
P.) Capt, Roald Amundsen, Norwe
gian explorer, has definitely aban
doned for this year his plan for an
airplane flight from northern Alaska
across the north pole to Spitzbcrgen
or Grant's Landing, but plans to hop
off next spring, it became known
with the arrival here of the coast
guard cutter Bear from Point Bar
row. Capt. Amundsen told the corre
spondent of the Associated Press,
who joined the Bear at Point Barrow,
that the start had been delayed by
unfavorable ice conditions and that
the season was too far advanced to
permit chances for success. Ice con
ditions, he said, were against the
chances of a successful landing at
cither Spitzbergcn or Grant's Land
ing. Capt. Amundsen landed his plane
and equipment at Wainwright, 100
miles southwest of Point Barrow, and
will make that point the base for
Radio advices from Capt. Amund
sen's exploration ship Maud, indi
cate the vessel is frozen in the ice
near Wrangel island, off the north
eastern Siberian coast, and not off
Point Hope, Alaska, as was pre
viously reported. This fits in with
the plans of the explorer, who ex
pected the ship to start somewhere
near Wrangel island, the long drift
with the Arctic ice pack across the
north polar basin. Extensive re
search will be made by the scientists
aboard the Maud, with particular em
phasis on the study of the ocean and
air currents and meteorological con
ditions at the "top of the world."
The explorer expects to rejoin the
Maud by airplane some time next
year after the completion of his trans

Srparating Miner Trapped
in California Mine
Rapid Progress Is Made
Jackson, Cl Aug. 30. One hun
dred feet of earth separate the res
cue party working today in the un
derground depths of the Kennedy
mine from the entrance to the 4.MO0
foot level of the Argonaut mine,
where it it believed c least portion
of the men, said to number between
41 and 47, who have been entombed
in the burning mine since midnight,
Sunday, are trapped.
Remarkable headway hat been
made within the past 24 hours in the
work of attempting to cut through
from the Kennedy mine. Over 500
feet of loose rock have been cleared
way by the rescue party, and with
but 100 feet yet to go It is expected
that the lower level of the Argonaut
would be reached some time during
the day or night.
Ten men from the United States bu

Jackson, Cal., Aug. 30. The
age-old tradition of the tea, that
never a distressed mariner may
be pasted by, hat a parallel in
the annals of those who delve in
the earth for the precious metals
which wat well illustrated here
today. From all over the mother
lode country, even from Nevada,
have come miners eager to do
their part in carrying tuccor to
men trapped in the Argonaut
mine. No call ever it needed to
recruit men from tlope end tun
nel for a mission of mercy un
derground. They come un
asked. For, if the mariner may not
past hit ship-wrecked fellow,
neither may the miner who wants
to retain hit self-respect ignore
the opportunity to aid one of hit
kind who it in peril. "You tee,"

man," It might be our turn next."
that they had again reached the 2,700
foot level, from which a crew was
driven last night. The tmoke wat in
tense there and the fire was reported
raging fiercely below that point. The
flames are said to be gradually creep

All of the miners along the mothsr

country, have responded with volun
teers to aid in the work of attempted
Among those that have come to
the scene are men trained in mine

Science of War Employed.
San Francisco, Aug. 30. The sci
ence of war was called upon today
to assist the rescue crews which are
trying to reach the miners entombed
in the Argonaut mine at Jackson.
Will J. French, chairman of the
state industrial accident commission,
announced that a gcophone, used for
the purpose of detecting sounds at
points distant from the instrument,
is being rushed up from Berkeley,
and that Dr. L. H. Duschak, expert
on gases for the commission is on
his way to Jackson from here.
The geophone will be used in the
tunnel through which it is hoped to
effect a rescue. It is so delicately
adjusted, according to Mr. French,
that it will detect the noise of a fall
ing leaf 100 feet away. It is hoped
through the instrument to detect the
distance and location of any noises
that might be made by the trapped
The instrument was developed dur
ing the war to locate the .position
and distance of enemey guns and
for other related purposes.

Isn't It Time
in Movie Murder
"Mysterious Blonde" Identi
fied an Alice Thorton,
Edgewater, N. J., Aug. 30. Two
more movie people were yesterday
revealed as witnesses to the tragedy
enacted at Hie home of George F.
Cline,' location director, last F'riday
night when "Handsome Jack" Ber
gen, "dare-devil double" for film
stars, was fatally shot.
Miss Alice Thornton, whom Ber
gen had lifted from a stenographer's
desk in financial Manhattan to a
place before the camera, was identi
fied as "the mysterious blonde" who
was in the Cline home when the man
who had befriended her was killed.
Another witness who yesterday
shed new light en the affair was Jo
seph Iurilo, fireworks expert in bat
tle scene movies.
With the statements of these two,
making seven who are known to
have seen the tragedy enacted at the
Cline home, county authorities an
nounced they were ready to proceed
with the case and 100 men and
women were impanelled for the Sep
It was Miss Thornton who first
notified Cline of the affair of his
wife and Bergen.
Cline telephoned her Friday night,
she said, and asked her to come to
LEdgcwater. She declared she did
not know then and does not know
now whether she was used as a lure
to get Bergen to the house. The
Edgewater investigators believe Ber
gen went to the Cline home thinking
Miss Thornton wanted to make
friends with him again after he had
been informed, it is alleged, that he
"could make up with Alice."

Washington, Aug. 30. White
House callers who discussed the

came away with the impression that
the executive regarded addition of
the Mc.N'ary reclamation and Sim

adopted yesterday in the senate as
making the measure more objection
able than it was in its original form.
With respect to the Simmons' pro
posal that the bonus be paid out of

Rome, Aug. 30 (By A. P.) After
trying out in the Vatican gardens the
automobile presented to him by the
Milan Arcluliosce Pope Pius has had
it duly registered hy the Italian au
thorities. The officials were rather
embarrassed in fulfilling the papal
request, as no previous pope ever
owned a motor car. After a lengthy
discussion they included the car in
the diplomatic class.
The car will be used for the first
time in the streets of Rome on Sep

new madonna of Loretto, previously
blessed hy the pope, to the church of
