LEFT TO DIE UNDER WHEELS Of

Coast Line railroad tracks by chains
around h > neck and legs Rev. Will
McNeil. 27-year.old preacher was lefl
by a band of masked assailants Tues.
day jiight to be ground to pieces b>
a speeding train. The man’s loud wails
and cries for mercy caused someone
to telephone police who rescued Mc
Neil two hours before a fast passeng
er train was scheduled to pass the
spot where he had been chained
Brought to the jail here McNeil told
police *hat he was kidnaped while
walking or. the street by several color
ed men who jumped from an auto
mobile A blanket was thrown over his
head after he heard one of his abduct
ors exclaim: “That’s him, let's get
him!” He was carried to the deserted
spoj on the railroad tracks and chain
ed. Rev. McNeil, judging by voices,
estimated that there were 3 or more
men in the kidnaping party. The
preacher could advance no possible
motive the rr.en would have for taking
his life. Police however, have learned
that McNeil was not very popular
amonft* his people in his community
particularly the men. Among the sus
pects seized for questioning was Alli
son Fuller identified by McNeil as^ one
of his kidnapers. Fuller denied any
part in the plot to have the clergyman
crushed by a train.

NEGRO PROSPECTOR STUMBLES
, ON GOLD FIND
(Continued from Page 1)
had been flourished and heated debate
. had taken place. The story is told
that because Hoard became lost on a
copper-colored mountain side at the
edge of dazzling Royal Gorge, there
is a new j.r^am of glittering gold and
1 silver wealth flowing out of South
For forty seven years Robert Hoard
scratched out of the mountains a
scant living for himself and wife and
thtir children. A few weeks ago, ‘Old
Bob’, now 61 years old, left his fam_
ily in Canon City and started toward
Westcliffe, hoping to get a grubstake
as he’d been doing for years.
He took through the mountains a
short cut which led into unfamiliar
surroundings. The surface formations
of the region caught the prospector’s i
eye, and the more he picked around
in the rocks the surer he was that he
had found real “pay dirt” at last.
Ignoring hunger, he had brought a.
long only meager provisions, Hoard !
stayed three days, digging. Satisfied
he gathered up a bag of ore sample j
and, half.starved, hurried back tc
His “find” was verified. “Old Bob’
had hit rich gold. His samples assay
ed $80 a ton or more.
When his discovery became known,
the trails to Copper Gulch swarmed
with miners, and every foot of ground
within several miles of Bob’s “hole”
was soon staked out. Overnight the
gulch became a young Klondike. Min_
t-rs are camped almost as thick as the
, pines in the canyon, most of them liv.
ing in tents, a few crude “lean tos.”
All day long they drive their shafts,
-low and tedious work with only picks
bars and sledges to break the ore and
! bucket windlasses to hoist it to the
There are no roads up the gulch,
but Fremont County officials have
started to build a wagon road. There
is no railroad closer than Parkdale,
where the Denver and Rio Grande
Western enters the Royal Gorge. To
this thirty.mile distant place the mi
ners will truck their ore when the
wagon road is finished.

The GAS Refrigerators that were first installed in
Omaha homes, years ago, are still delivering low
cost refrigeration, day in and day out. Their
owners expect them to be working just as well,

I There’s nothing to wear out on a GAS Refrigera

the secret of its long life. t

“YOUNGEST MENTALIST ON THE AMERICAN STAGE”
W. M. W.—I have a husband and he
is nice to me and he has trust in me
but now he don’t want to trust me
and have not seen nothing of me. Tell
me what is the trouble?
Ans:Someonei is giving you away to
him. They are telling about your af_
far with this other fellow. Just re
member this sister, that you can’t be
fair to two men. You had your fun
now face the penalty. Your husband
knows that you have been everything
but a loyal and faithful wife.
L. P.—I am having so much bad luck
that I thought I would talk to you
about it? Can you show me what is
my trouble, things are right hard
Ans: Yes, I can tell you what your
trouble is but may I suggest that you
send for one of my Astrology Read_
ings and let me cover your case with
you privately as it is very unusual.
Just send a quarter and you will re
ceive your answers back by return
mail. Just to prove to you that I am
on the right track I might say that
A. L. D. is the cause of all your
R. A. F. C.—Please inform me as to
the whereabouts of my paternal par
ent? I would like very much to con_
Ans: The party that you inquire a_
bout is in a large city in the north
east. I contact this blood relative liv
ing in Boston, Massachusetts. I be_
lieve that you will get in touch with
this person sometime in the future.
J. S. W.—I have knowed a man for
a number of years. Is he worth
while holding on to?
Anh: Not financially or socially. All
the promises that he made you were
just so much rubbish. lie is too full
of hot air to put much faith in. I
suggest that you let what he tells
you go in one ear and out the other.
Curly: I want to know if the boy I
am going with really wants to marry
ff= = -.- -L.. =
Ans: Oh he would marry you alright
but I do not believe it advisable. In
the first place he has no job and is
not trying any to hard to find one
and in the second place you are en_
tirely too young. Gfrls sixteen years
old should be worrying about their
education and not marrying.
H. P. L.—I would like for you to tell
me my lucky days and lucky numb
Ans: Your lucky days are Tuesdays
and Saturdays and your lucky num_
bers are 9, 7 and 10. These are your
compliment numbers. Your vital num
ber is 4. You will have more success
with this combination.
F. L. A.—Who took my leather bag
from my car?
Ans: A party by the initials of H. J.
He is not the pal that you think him
to be. The bag is over at his moth_
er’s home at this time. You will get
the bag but lose a friend that was
not worth having anyway.
X. X.—Does the boy at the store
where I work do all the things he says
he does? Will I visit the fair this
Ans: It would take a better man than
him to do all the things he claims he
does. He is fifty percent facts and
fifty percent hot air. You will take a
trip this summer but I do not think
it will be to Chicago.
G. C. M.—I have been told that I
would get a better job in less than
another month. Is that true?
Ans: It is. One of your intimate
friends will be the means of you se
curing this job.
X. Y. Z.—Please tell me whether I
will get a new boy friend soon and do
either C. B. or R. A. love me? Please
tell me is there anything to this
Ans: Neither boy loves you. One or
two new boy friends will enter your
life this summer. There is quite a bit
to this shivery business. You have a
lot to learn.

MOTION PICTURE EXHIBITORS
SURPRISED TUESDAY IN
On Tuesday when the Motion Pic.
ture Operators Amended Ordinance
ca'nie up for a vote which was rec.
ommended Monday by a committee
of the whole ur-iamously, the exhibit,
ors and parties cocerned in the
amended Ordinance were quite sur
prised by the vote of Commissioners
John Hopkins, Roy N. Towl, and
Harry Trustin. It was said by one
exhibitor, “we expected to see Mr.
Hopkins vote against our amended
Ordinance, for we felt he was some
what inclined to favor the Union
Operators, “but the biggest surprise
of the vote taken was the vote cast in
the negative by Commissioner Roy N.
Towl and Commissioner Harry Trus
tin, both of who the exhibitors felt
would at least stay by the recom
mendations made by the Committee
of the whole Monday July 10. There
was some doubt expressed by one ex
hibitor about Commissionr Trustin
voting against the Amended Ordin
ance, and said that he thought there
must have been a mistake in the
Clerk’s counting the votes for they
were positive that Mr. Trustin voted
in the affirmative. However the rec
ords of the roll call in the city Clerk’s
office show the following Commis
sioners Myers, Knudsen, Frost. Hop
kins, Butler for the affirmative May
or Towl, and Harry Trustin in th«
negative, thereby leaving the votes
standing 5 in the affirmative and 2
in uie negative.
On Monday the City Council re.
ceived and adopted 7 in the affirma
tive ar.d none in the negative the re.
port from the following Committee •
Commissioners. Dan Butler, John
Hopkins, and Frank Frost, which was
appointed by Mayor Towl to hear the
grievances from the Motion Picture
Operator’s Union and their repre.
•’"nt.atives and the Exhibitors and
their representatives. This report was
recommended to the Council for con.
'sideration in its regular meeting
Tuesday the report was read and ac.
cepted by the City Commissioners, 5
in the affirmative 2 in the Negative,
At this same meeting the amended
Ordinance was read for the final
reading and passage and the roll caE
showed 5 in the affirmative, one in
the negative and one absent, thereby
the- act of this vote amended Ordin
ance will become a Law in 15 days.
This Amended Ordinance provides
for an examining board of 3 appoint
ed by the City Commissioners, there,
by eliminating the former Union
Operator, who was president of the
examining board, the president of
the operators Union, and also the Ex
hibitor. The new board will be made
up as follows: the city electrician, the
city engineer, and one fire inspector.
We believe this is a move in the right
direction for fair play for the appli.
cants in their examination. This law
will become effective within 15 days
from July 12.
At this time the 2 Negro youths
who appealed to the Appeal Board of
the City Council following the de
cision of the Motion Picture OpeTa
tors Board will carry out a mandate
issued by the appeal Board when they
appeared before them. They will take
the third examination from the new
board, and if they are successful in
passing the examination they will
immediately apply for membership in
the Motion Picture Operators’ local
Union, which they have always ex_
pressed a willingness to do. They will
not under any circumstances become
a scab on Union Labor. For if the lo
cal Union refuses them membership
they will apply directly to the Amer
lean Federation of Labor, general of
fice. This they hope wEl not be neces.
sary as Omaha is their home. They
were born, reared and educated here
and feel they will be given a full citi
zen’s consideration by all in this af_

GERMANY WILL PAY ONLY
HALF OF HER DEBTS
Economic Crisis Forcing Hitler Gov’l
Berlin, July—Germany will only
pay half of her debts to foreign cred
itors. Hjalmar Schacht, head of the
German Reic.hsbank announced today.
Germany will pay foreign capitalists
creditors 350,000,000 marks in foreign
currency and will keep in her own
vaults the other $50,000,000 owing to
the foreign capitalist creditors.
This step, which is indicative of the
e-rowing financial bankruptcy of the
Hitler government, is evidence of the
further deepening of the crisis in the
world markets. Sc-hact explained that
“If German exports do not obtain
freer markets than heretofore, pay
ment of Germany’s private debts will
become wholly impossible.
But Germany’s creditors want to
sell to Germany, not to buy her goods.
This means that the German financial
crisis will undoubtedly get worse, dnd
that the complete non-payment of all
German debts will soon become a dis
It has been estimated that 50 per
cent of Germany’s private debts are
held by bankers in the United States.
