MIGHTY TURK AND GIANT DANE
Two HI Wrestlers Will Meet at the

What Is expected to he one of Ihe fiercest
wrestling matches in (he history of Omaha

Ahamed Karamakaaa has been In this
country but a few months, but he has
already won enough great victories In

not afrad to meet the best of them. He
weighs 192 pounds and Is said to be as
quick and agile as a cat and a stayer to

Wcstergard weighs 210 pounds and Is
nearly all bone and muscle. While he may
lack a little In science of being up to
Clotch or Farmer Burns. Ills tremendous
strength and lasting vitality makes him
a formidable man for even a champion

"tarts from (las Explosion.
The firs started from an explosion of
natural gas in the basement at 5 o'clock
this morning. The flames and dense smoke
spread quickly throughout the building
and before the alarm could be given all
means of escape by the ordinary exits hud
been shut off. The five persons, who lost
their lives were asleep on the third floor
and all save Mrs. Bert were burned to
death in their rooms. Evidently they had
been suffocated and none apparently had
even made an attempt to escape. Before
the flro department arrived the building
was a mass of flames and the rooms on
the upper floors could not be entered.
Mabel Porter and Nina Graves, two of the
dead, occupied a room together. The In
jured slept on the lower floors and In the
basement. Most of these escaped without
aid, fighting thvlr way through' the flames
and smoke. The firemen were able to res
cue them from tho burning building.
Mrs. Bert a Heroine.
Mrs. Bert lost her life In trying to arouse
the Inmntes. The dene smoke, pouring up
the stairway, soon filled the hsllways and
entered the rooms. Mrs. Bert's room, on
the third floor, was close to the landing, and
It was one of tho first to be entered by
the smoke. She was awakened and hur
ried down the hallway on the floor and at
tempted to awaken the sleeping roomers.
The smoke soon drove her to the second
floor. Where she tried to repeat rur effort
at giving an alarm. The smoke and flames,
however, now crowded her so closely that
she was compelled to desist and sought
escape by the stairway. At tho top of the
second floor landing she stumbled and,
falling headlong down the Qtalrs, landed In
the thickest of the flames. At the bottom
her charred remains were later found by
the firemen. Tho body was almost un
recognizable. There were twenty-two persons In the
hulldlng when the fire broke out. Most of
the roomers worked at ninht as waitresses
and cooks at nearby hotels and restaur
ants. Most of them had retired only a
short ttrrie previous and they were deep
In sleep. This fact doubtless accounts for
the Inability of Mrs. Bort to awaken them.
Bodies Foond In Beds.
The bodies of the four other victims
were found In their beds. Each had been
terribly burned and the limbs drorried
from one of them as the remains wore
later carried from the house.
The alarm of fire was turned in by
Colonel Willis Wood, a capitalist, formerly
of St. Joseph, Mo. The building Was one
of the oldest In the city and was situated
on what Id Kansas City's early days was
known as "Quality Hill." The building
waa a veritable fire trap, and when the
firemen arrived It was then already
doomed. It was not supplied with fire
escapes, and the only means was by way
ot the stairway up through which the
flames and smoke poured.

Both Factions ot Republicans Seek

SlOfX FAILS. 8. D.. Feb. 1. (Special.)
Secretary Taft could not possibly" avoid
getting the support of South Dakota In
the Chicago convention. In all seriousness
the statement Is made that It Is doubtful
If there is any way by which Taft could
prevent South Dakota from giving him Its
votes In the national convention.
The situation as to the presidency In this
state Is Indeed rather laughable. The re
publican party Is divided Into two bitterly
hostile factions. And for the Inst three
months each of these factions has been
straining Its lungs to shout the louder for
Taft. Senator Klttredge, leader of the
stalwarts, began the game by declaring
for Taft even before Presldnr. Roosevelt
had announced the last time Dia he would
not accept another nomination. And now
Governor Crawford, Klttredge's opponent
In the senatorial contest, leads his faction
In sounding the praises of Hecretary Taft.

We want to sen J you trial treatment

All this has conic about because each
faction wants the- prestige of controlling
the March stale convention to select na
tional delegstes. Each wants a nnme to
conjure with. Roosevelt Is Ihe charmed
cognomen for South Dakota voters, for
about three out ot four of them were for
hlm at theORst election. But when Roose
velt Insisted on staying out It was neces
sary to cast shout for another standard
bearer. As Taft was seemingly Roosevelt's
choice neither faction dared take chances
of offending the big Roosevelt sentiment
by supKrtlng any other. 8o It happens
that each faction Is marking time by the
formation of Roosevelt-Tart clubs all over
The only question remaining for the
March primaries. It seems. Is to determine
whether Klttredge or Crawford shall head
tho national delegation. So the contest Is
likely to resolve Itself Into a fight entirely
on state Issues.
LeFollette has no chance whatever of
obtaining the South Dakota delegation.
There Is a grest deal of I,aFsllcVe senti
ment In the state, but this counts ss noth
ing with the political leaders who Under
stand tho danger jot opposing the Roose
velt candidate. 'And either faction will
give Iron bound Instructions for Taft, to
demonstrate sincerity In support of the
Roosevelt man 'for Roosevelt's place.

deep red as Foreman Gremmels stated that
a verdict had been reached.
She waa confident, however, and when
tho final announcement came she glanced
up quickly at her husband and smiled en
thusiastically. Thaw was recalled from the custody of
his Tombs guard when Justice Dowllng
granted the delay In executing the order
of commitment. Mrs. Thaw had brought
his luncheon down to him In her automo
bile and It had been spread In the Tombs
as usual. The repast was sent for and
Thaw and his wife ate together In an ante
room of the court chamber, where he had
twice stood trial for his life, the first Jury
having disagreed, 7 to 5, for conviction.
Besides saying informally that she was
pleased with the verdict Mrs. Thaw made
no statement- at tho court house. Thaw
sent word h hHd nothing to say at this
Thaw Ordered In Custody.
fter the arrest of Pell. Justice Dowllng
Inimcdlately began his ruling as to holding
Thaw In custody. First, addressing the
Jurors, ho t bunked them for their work
and declared he had no doubt that they
had discharged their duties to tho entire
satisfaction of their own consciences. Then,
turning to the defendant nnd his counsel,
Justice Dowllng suld:
Tho only testimony in this case upon
wlblch a verdict of insanity could bo based
was to tho effect (hat the defendant Is
suffering from maniac depressive force or
derangement. This testimony and the
diagnosis form of insanity was bajed upon
prior outbreaks of the defendant, as testi
fied to by witnesses from bonrion, Monto
Carlo, Paris and Albuny. It also unpesrs
from the testimony. Had the court was
careful to Inquire as to this, that recur
rences of these attacks are reasonably cer
tain. There has been no testimony adduced
here to show that a person suffering from
this form of Insanity ever can be perma
nently cured. It appears, however, that
during the maniacal form of the disease,
the person suffering therefrom Is likely to
commit dangerous assaults of murder.
There Is danger also of suicide.
Therefore, upon all the testimony In this
case, the oourt deems that to allow the
defendant to go at large, woul be dan
gerous to the public safety. The' derision
of the court Is that the defendant shall not
be discharged, but being In custody, shall
be so held and committed with all dispatch
to the state hospital for the criminal In
sane at Matteawan. The sheriff of the
county Is directed to take custody of the
defendant and deliver him to tne state
authorities at Matteawan.
. The law provi
Chalice (or Freedom.
provides that once a defendant
Is found not guilty, even wjth the Insanity
clause attached, he may not again have
his llfo placed In Jeopardy. Aa soon as
they can convince a commission especially
appointed for his examination, or the state
board of lunacy, as may be the case, that
he Is sane and no longer to be regarded as
a menace to the public safety, he will be
given his liberty.
It Is said District Attorriey Jerome would
personally oppose any move for the libera
tion of Thaw, either at the present time or
at any time In the future.
Mr. Littleton announced In court that hs
desired to except from the court ruling.
Justice Dowllng said he would allow lhg
attorneys until 3 p. in. to consult aa to
whether or not they would sue a writ of
habeas corpus to have Thaw's sanity
tested at once by a commission or to have
him confined to a state Institution. .
Thaw's family were pleased with the ver
dict and declared It was the best they had
hoped for. They are particularly anxious,
however, that Thaw shal) be taken to a
private anyluni or some other, hospital un
der state direction than the one for the
criminal Insane. f

Thaw Makes Frequent Inquiries of

NEW YORK, Feb. 1. After having ar
gued and balloted all night long In the
stuffy tittle Jury room adjoining the cham
ber of the criminal branch of the supreme
court N the Thaw Jurors this morning
heartily welcomed their release from con
finement when shortly before, 8 o'clock
they were taken Up town to breakfast.
Several of the Jurymen are well along In
years and the all-night session seemed to
have gone badly with' them- Their faces
were drawn and tense and the good nature
and companionship which had been so no
ticeable In this Jury, ever since the panel
was completed during the first week of the
trial waa gone. No report with any degree
of authenticity filtered from the Jury room
this morning and the opening of the court
ut 10:811 a. m, was awaited with much anx
iety, 'as It was believed the Jury might
have some communication to make at that
hour, or that Justice Dowllng might send
for them to ask if he could be of any

that a verdict had been reached. He was
thoroughly convinced before retiring last
night that the rumor dividing the Jury
eight to four In favor of acquittal on the
ground of insanity waa true and he felt
today that the minority might be won over.
Thaw at last seems absolutely reconciled
to the fact that the best he can hope for
is a term of uUinement In an asylum. He
Is convinced, however, and so are his at
torneys, that he would le able to win his
way out of an asylum In a short while, aa
the tests he stood last year when arraigned
before a commission. In lunacy were quits
convincing .as to his present ability to
prove his soundness of reason.
Uaths, fresh air and breakfast worked
a marked Improvement In the condition of
most of the Jurors and when they returned
to the criminal court room from their hotel
at 10 'o'clock all seemed physically fit to
continue their deliberations for some time
Never since the killing of Stanford White
has Thaw spent so restless a night aa ha
did last night and during the early hours
this morning. During the early hours of
the night Thaw smoked s good deal and
seemed to think that the Jury would re
turn a verdict before midnight.
When be learned that the Jury had failed
to agree and bad beea locked up (or the
night he becamo restless. Although h
tried to sleep, lis Jas wakeful, and after
a dnie would wake again and ..ask I lis
warden for news of (lis Jury.
Thaw was taken from the prison to the
court house at 10:30 o'clock, but fit rd
at that time or for an hour" Mien-after had
come from Justice Dowllng or from I lis
Jury room. Tho Judge finally arrived at
11:35 a. m. and went to his chsmher.
Mrs. Evelyn Thaw visited Iter husband
during the morning and repotted lhat he
was quite dejected over the oiillook, Thaw
Is reported to have said:
I am afraid that despite the vigilance
of my counsel there sre two or three men
on trie Jury with Innate prejudices against
me. I have In mind one particular Juror,
whose name I shall not mention. But no
one who has followed the trial with any
degree of Interest can" hsve fstle.1 to notice
the significant glances this msn exchanged
with a member of the prosecution. This
wss particularly so at the conclusion of
Mr. Littleton's address.'
There was no word awaiting Justice
Dowllng on his arrival at the court room,
and there waa complete silence In the di
rection of the Jury room.
Justice Dowllng announced that he would
not send for the Jury until he reoeived
some definite word from It.
