BUTLER AND KENNEDY TALK
Actinic 3Iayor Speaks for Dahlman
anil Association's President Urges,
More Bi-Mrmhtn Go to
One hundred and twenty-five county
commissioners, supervisors and clerks
from various parts of the state attended
the opening session of their state asso
ciation convention at the Rome hotel yes
terday afternoon. In tho absenco of
Mayor James C. Dahlman, who has not
yet returned from Washington. D. C,
Acting Mayor Dan Butler delivered the
address of welcome. P. J., Kennedy of
York, president of the association, re
sponded. Jacob Sass, county commissioner of
Sarpy county, gave a brief talk. In which
he explained how a man can have a
modern houso on a 200-acre farm. He has
that kind of a house on his farm In Sarpy
county, and told the commissioners that
it Is Just as much possible to have an
all modern house In tho country as In the
city, If a fellow will only get at It and
make It so, with a little work and an
expenditure of a few dollars. President
Kennedy had visited Sass at his home.
and was so 'Impressed with tho modern
equipment that he asked Sass to tell
Tho advantage of dragging roads was
taken up by Henry Sunderman of Madi
son county. Discussions followed by A.
C. Horte of Dquglas county, Henry
Fastcnau of Otoe county, Dave Stewart
of Holt ceunty and others.
Urgea More Commissioners.
An organized effort will be made by
the county commissioners of the state to
secure the election of more ex-commls-sloners
to the state legislature In the fu
ture, If the advice of President P. J. Ken
nedy of the County Commissioners' as
sociation Is followed. In his address at
tho opening of the annual convention of
tho supervisors and commissioners at the
Homo hotel President Kennedy urged this
as a necessary measure to get favorable
legislation for the commissioners and to
get questions pertaining to county man
agement properly understood In the leg
President Kennedy also reviewed tho
work of the organization from Its begin
ning, nineteen years ago, and hoped for
great things in the future. He said tho
organization had done work In the past
years that had resulted not only In get
ting a raise In salaries for tho commis
sioners and supervisors throughout the
state, but work that had resulted In the
more economical management of the af
fairs of tho counties that has saved the
taxpayers lots of money.
Look for Lame Attendance.
Some forty commissioners, supervisors
and county clerks arrived before noon
yesterday for the .opening of theacco
elation meetings, 'Prominent members
othe'aocatleB-iy they - dlook. . for
SOd members to attend this year.
The county clerks hold sepamt ses
sions. They have certain problems of
tlielr own to work' out. ' J! B. McDonald
of Pierce, vice president of the clerks'
association, is crammed full of the sub
ject or bridge building. "It Is "really the
commissioners' fight Instead of the
clerks," he says, "but something must
be done on account of the new law passed
last winter requiring counties to have
their bridge contracts figured and
awarded by the state. The state Is foro
Ing too high priced bridges on the coun
ties, and we simply can't Use them. We
can't pay for them. They figure on great
heavy bridges for us when we can't raise
the money to pay for them and we don't
need them at all. They are all right for
counties like Douglas and others where
the trafflo Is very heavy, but In Pierce.
county we don't need them. The law
will have to be repealed eventually. Any
way, In Pierce county we had made con-
traots for all our bridges for a year, long
before tho law went into effect. Now
what are they going to do about that?
Surely they cannot annul our contracts
by that law."
Outs Down Cripple
With Edge of Sabre
ZABKItN, Alsace. CJermany, Dec. 2.
Lieutenant Baron Von Forstner, who
started the trouble between the troops
and civilians here by referring scornfully
to the citizens when he addressed the re
crults of his company, aroused still fur
thcr indignation against the army today
by cutting down a Alsatian shoemaker
with his saber.
The titled lieutenant was leading a half
company of the Ninety-ninth Infantry
from the barracks to the country to go
through the morning 'drill when a group
of workmen recognized Von Forstner.
Thoy hooted the officer, who at once
halted his company and sent a squad of
soldiers In pursuit.
The Infantrymen succeeded In catching
only one man, a lame shoemaker, who
Von Forstner then came up and de
liberately struck him on the head with
the sharpened edge of his saber. The
wound Is a dangerous one.
The fresh incident has created such
tension that serious bloodshed Is feared

Oraig as Persecuted
and Innocent Man
8HELBYVILLE, Ind., Dec, 2.-Dr. Will
Ism B. Craig was portrayed as an Inno
cent man, who was being unfairly pros
ecuted by the state In the opening state
ment of the defense made by Henry
X. Spoan today at the trial of the former
for the murder of Dr. Helene Knabe.
Mr. Spaan denied that there waa any
greater Intimacy than that of good
friendship between Dr. Craig and Dr.
Knabe. He said there was never a
promise of marriage or any talk of mar
riage between the two.
"Dr. Knabe was a mannish woman, a
fighter, but she was not successful,"
said Mr. Spaan. She borrowed money
from her friends because she waa un
able to make a living at the "practice
of medicine and at the time of her death
she was preparing to train herself for
physical culture work."
Ho asserted that her cousin Dr.
August A. Knabe, knew that sne was de
spondent because of her' failure In life
and told a friend who will be produced
aa a witness that he waa afraid Dr.
Knabe would commit suicide.
At great length the accused man's at
torney described the surroundings at Dr.
Knabe' s apartment on the morning her
body was found and declared all of them
tended to support the suicide theory.

Thomas Splndel, one of the Imprisoned

the Golden Cycle. After nine hours'
work In the Chrlstman mine at the

been protected from the crushing slide

Near by was a carriage In which Miss
Murff and the two Duvalls were riding.
The girl leaped to the .dying Delhay'ea'
side, shot him twice with a pistol and
asserted she had kilted him. It was on

No program for trust legislation was
