DEATH OF WOMAN

BERLIN. Oct. 25. (Via The
Hague and London.) Dr. Alfrod F.
M. Zlmmermann, Gorman under sec
retary for foreign affairs has Issued
an official explanation of the re-!
cent execution In Belgium of Miss
Edith Carell. the British nurse. He!
prefaced his remarks by the dcclara1
tion that he had examined every Jot:
and tittle of the evidence with the'
greatest care and found the verdict, j
though regrettable, to be Just. His j
statement follows: j

to legal iiHaiscs. namely that

"In tho I'avell care I have reviewed the
decision of the court and examined the
evidence down to the smallest details.
The result In so rnnvlncnn and all the
circumstances are so clear and convincing-
that no court-martial In the world
would have reached any other decision.
Tor 11 concerns not the act of one slnalo
person, rather It concerns a well thouxht

"I ndir.lt certainly that the motive of

But In war time one must be ready to

"Billy" Has Blessing for All of Us
The last prayer offered by Mr. Sunday In his Omaha campaign
came at the close of the service last evening. He said:
"Well. Jesus, I'm almost through. Every board in the old
tabernacle has become sacred, and the carpet here, and the path from
here to the lyal hotel and back up to the Brandels theater, Lord.
And we remember the stock yards, too, where we have so many good

didn't remember the name, and "Billy" hurried on with his prayer.)
"They were good to us and took so many pictures and gave us that
pretty book. Good bye, Jim; we thoupht you would hit the trail, but
you didn't. Good bye, council. Oood bye, court house folks and
men at tho shops. And then there are the people at the packing

Thank you, boys. Oood bye, cops."

Saturday will probably be the last !

ered by agents from the Nebraska j

the estimate Is that the crop, taking i
the state as a whole, will be a bumper
and that the figures given out by the
government Agricultural department
a few days ago, 212.000,000 may be
exceeded. The previous bumper
crop wan 203,000,000 bushels and the
average for the five years prior to
1913, according to government re
ports, 183,201,200 bushels.

Speaking on what the weather of the
last week has done for the corn, the
"Weather during the week was exceed
ingly favorable and many fields of corn
that were not entirely ripe continued to
mature. The corn that waa fully matured
dried In the almost constant sunshine
with modcrutcly hlKh temperature. Con
ditions were favorable for gathering and
taking care of that part of the crop that
had been damaged by frost."
Dealing with wheat the - Burlington's
crop report assorts that due to the favor
able veather conditions and the moisture
of the soil, tho seeding has been carried
on and Is now practically finished, with
an acreage that will be probably greater
than was sown one year ago. In most
fields the grain has sprouted and gives
promise of going Into the winter In the
best of condition.
"Billy" Has Thanks for All Hands
"Rilly" Sunday's final speech of thanks was made Just before
bis evening sermon, lie said:
"You've made a record to be proud of. You don't realize what
It means to you. People judge a community by Its attitude toward
God. I thank the ministers for the way they've stood by us. I've
said somo things that they didn't like, but they were men enough to
keep Btill. I never labored with a finer crowd of men. They have
won my heart. If they had had a yellow streak I would hare found It.
"And the ushers. I have never been at a place where 1 had to
say less to the ushers than here. Vou have handled the crowds mag
niricently. And the entertainment committee. We have been splen
didly taken care of here. And the transportation committee that has
seen to getting us around to the various meetings In automobiles.
"And I particularly want to thank the newspapers, The Bee.
World-Herald and News. This is the first place where the whisky
gang hasn't tried to gag and throttle the papers, and hasn't offered
money to keep them from printing accounts of the meetings and ray
sermons. One place they went and offered an editor $2,600, and he
told them to go to the place that I've been preaching about. And I
want to thank the fine men that have been reporting these meetings.
And I want to thank the choir for their faithful work, and the city
offic'als and the workers In the nursery and hospital. Thank Omaha.
You S ve done fine."
