that the commission proposed by the

Known in Omaha 4
'Dare Devil' Smith .i&o
Rutland, Vt , Sept. 7. Lieut.
vin W. Maynard. known as "ti
flying pamou" was killed while (ly
ing at the Rutland fair today.
Lieut. Charles Wood of Ticonder
ogj, N. Y, and Charles Mionett of
New York, a mechanic, also were
killed. The plane fell J.OOO feet.
Four hours later Henry A. (Dare
Devil) Smith of Boston, an aero
naut, was instantly killed when his
parachute failed to open after he had
dropped from a balloon at a height
of 1,500 fret.
Lieut. Maynard became internation
ally known in 1V1V when he won the
tound trip transcontinental race be
tween New York and San Francisco.
He always kept up his work as a
parson, no matter how insistent the
rail of the air. Last April Lieut.
Maynard performed the marriage
ceremony for a couple who wanted
to be wed above the ground.
Performed Marriage In Air.
Two weeks ago lie soared up over
the Hudson with L. Wilson llcrtaud,
another noted flyer, and Miss Helen
Virginia Lent, and while in the air
made them man and wife.
The aviators went up for a trial
spin before taking passengers for
flights as had been their custom
during the fair. Lieutenant Maynard,
the pilot, apparently misjudged his
distance before attempting a tail
spin. The machine refused to re
cover and he then attempted to throw
it into a nose dive. This also failed
and the plane crashed.
Lieutenant Maynard was alive
when spectators reached the wreck
age, but died before reaching a hos
pital. Lieutenant Wood and Mion
clte were instantly killed.
The plane had been in the air
about 20 minutes. The three pilots
had been making daily flights at the
fair grounds as a "flying circus."
Landed Here in 1919.
Lieut. Maynard landed in Omaha
October 9, 1919, while racing from
Mincola, L. L. to San I'rancisco in
competition with 57 other army fliers
in a transcontinental match. He
made the fattest time to Omaha and
his time across the country was 24
hours 9 minute.
The lieutenant aerved a year at Ko-
morantin, France, and established a
world record for the number of loop-he-loops
without loss of altitude.
Kansas City Man
Slays His Father
Clerk in Office Says Shooting
Followed Quarrel Over Dis

Kansas City, Sept. 7. Roy B.
Garvev snot and killed his father,
J. W. Garvey, yesterday, as the lat
ter sat at his desk in an insurance of
fice operated by the two in a down
town building here. Garvey then
walked to police headquarters and
"My father and I were in business
together," Garvey told the police.
"I went there this morning and we
had some words. My father sudden

"I thought be was going to pull
out a weapon and I leaped to my
feet and started toward the door,
pulling my own revolver from my
pocket. I believed he was going to
fire and I did so first."
An oral statement made by Roy
Garvey to the police indicated, the
authorities said, that the discharge
of Helen Groh, a stenographer, led
to the quarrel. Garvey was arraigned
late before a justice of the peace on
a charge of first degree murder and
was remanded to the county jail.
According to Miss Florence Sehur,
a clerk in the office, the elder Gar
vey had discharged Mrs. Groh be
cause she had been humming and
whistling. Shortly after Mrs. Groh
was discharged the younger partner
entered the office and talked a few
minutes with Mrs, Groh, Miss Sebur
said. II then entered his father's
private ofiice and after a few min
utes she heard six shots. The tr
veys are said to be wealthy.

' of U.S. Injunction
Official May Ak Court to
Strike Out Clautte In
volving Free Speech
Omaha IWw ImA W lr.
Washinuton. Sent. 7. Modifica
(ion of the injunction against the
rail strikers will be asked by the
covernment in Federal Judge YViIkci
son' court in Chicago, when hear
ings begin Monday on the question
of making the temporary onlcr per
meut. This was learned today up
on high authority.
It would be no surprise if the gov'
eminent voluntarily asked the court
to tnke out of the permanent in
junction all the clauses involving the
question of free speech, free press
2nd free assemblage, which the
strikers contend are in violation of
their constitutional guarantees. The
provision of the injunction forbid
ding the use of the funds of the
shopmen, for atrike purposes, also
may be eliminated at the request ol
the government, although this is in
Most of the ablest lawyer in con
gress, public or privately, have voic
ed their disapproval of some of the
provisions of the injunction, par
ticulary those which were alleged to
be in conflict with the first amend
ment to the constitution. Some- of
those senators and congressmen have
not hesitated to express their view
to the president and Attorney Gen
eral Daugherty directly.
Senator Borah (Idaho), 'chairman
of the senate labor committee, con
ferred with Mr. Daugherty today at
Mr. Daugherty' invitation. The at
torney general is understood to have
expressed a desire for the opinion
of Senator Borah on the term of
the injunction. Senator Borah frank
ly informed him that he considered
the injunction far too drastic.
I told him I thought the injunc
tion clauses which were far beyond
the power of the court to grant,"
said Senator Borah. "Some of
them, in my opinion, are in viola
tion of the constitution. Futhermore,
I told him that the presence of those
clauses in the injunction did not help
his case any. On the other hand, i
thought they would retard and de
lay adjustment of the real contro
versy involved in the strike."
Senator Borah received a tele
gram from John T. Dowd, chairman
of the central strike committee of
the Metropolitan district, New York
city, asking him to institute impeach
ment proceedings against Attorney
General Daugherty and Judge Wil
kcrson for violating the constitu
tion. Sciator Borah said he "will
reply fully to your telegram after
the hearing next week"
If the leaders of the striking rail
road shopmen make war upon re
publican candidates, as they threaten
to do, the issue is one that few. if
any. nomiiicss of the republican par
ty will evade, declared Republican
rubhcity association, tliroiich its
president, Jonathan Bourne, jr.
While the strike i not fundamental
ly a party issue, the strikers have
the power to make it a party issue by
following up their crusade for the
defeat of republican caudi htes as
a rebuke to the administration.

May Ignore Injunction.
Following the filing of the sui'
here and the announcement by the
attorney general that no counsel for
the striking unions had yet filed 'an
appearance in Judge Wilkerson's
court, it was reported in labor quar
ters that the shopcrafts may ignoic
the federal injunction suit, which
comes up for argument in Chicago
Monday. Attention was called lo
the fact that the railroad department
of the American Federation of La
bor had gone on record weeks ago
against spending union funds to fight
Although union officials would not
discuss the electrical workers suit,
it was regarded here as probable '
that similar suits might be filed in
ether localities to restrain the fed
eral officials from carrying out the
orders of the court under t'le Chi
Sgk to Prevent Service.
The suit filed here seeks to pre
vent service of the strike injunction
and to enjoin federal officials from
interfering with the conduct of the
International Brotherhood of Elec
trical Workers, or the conduct of
the railroad strike. James P. Noc
nan, president, and Charles P. Ford,
secretary of the electrical workers,
appear as plaintiffs in the case. No
tice was served on the government
as defendant that Justice Bailey will
be asked to issue a temporary in
junction Saturday morning.
; The plaintiffs maintain in their pe
tition trjat an injunction has no extra-territorial
effect and that Judge
Wilkerson had no authority in law or
equity to issue the injunction. No
rervice was made or attempted to
be made to summon the defendants
in the rase in Chicago, in accordance
with the provisions of the Sher
man act, before the injunction was
granted, it was claimed.
No Peace Parleys.
James P. Noonsn of the electrical
workers, who is preparing to attend
the conference of the shopcrafts poli
cy committee in Chilean Mnnt,.,
declared that there were no peace par-
itya Komg on Between the strike lead
ers and railroad executives. The
meeting in Chicago, he said, is called
to consider the general strike policy
and what should be done as a result
of the Wilkerson injunction. B M
Jewell, who was expected in Wash
ington today, could not be located
here. His associates said he had
not been here and was now en route
