road, whose lines are choked as far
back as Scranton with loaded freight
cars It cannot move, today Instructed
Its agents to accept no more freight
for export until further notice.
More than 6.000 loaded cars from
the west, all containing grain, feed,
flour, copper and hundreds of other
commodities, have virtually turned
the terminals "and sidings of the road
into a storage warehouse for weeks.
Some of the cars have been here for

the Lackawanna's lead shortly.
For months New York, mouth of the
bottle through which pours the great
bulk of America's export trade, has been
clogged with freight In excess of tils'

the big cereal crops and the unpreced

swollen exports within the past sixty

prominent Scientist, stated: "If It were
rt't-slble for Jesus to appear among men
today, one of his first acts would m:st
certainly be to disclaim all of that which
is' commonly referred to as the modern
evangelist. There is a reason for Sun
day's opposition to Christian Scientists.
The moment one begins to make a study
of the Bible iti the light of our text book,
cne loses all taste for the gymnastic
brand of religion of which Sunday Is such
sn able exponent."
Men fond of athletics attending the Sun

HAUSER TELLS OF
Alleged Murderer Might Have Made
Getaway from Wichita but for
Omaha Officers' Arrival.
WILL BE ARRAIGNED SHORTLY
That Art Hauser might have made
good hia escape from the Wichita
jail if Omaha officers had been a day
later In their trip to get him was dis
closed by the prisoner yesterday
It seems that In the roof of the
bathroom of the Jail is a round trap,
painted on the inside like the rest of
the Interior and practically un
noticeable. A trusty "who had
planned to make his escape by this
means, but was to be paroled before
he had occasion to try It, confided
his secret to Hauser.
Hauser had been confined In '.hq
Wichita Jail two weeks, and acordlng to
the regulations, was entitled to a bat.
He had asked for It and received the con
sent of the officials. It was his plan to
wrap himself in i his blankets, -enter the
bathroom, force the cover from the trap,
and with a rope maderom the blankets,
slide from the roof to the ground The
arrival of Omaha officers the day before
the bath was scheduled prevented the at
tempt. Barns Recosrnlsrs Man.
W, T. Hause, whose home was robbed
by Hauser, and several guests forced to
deliver their valuables, came ,to police
headquarters Saturday, with Douglas
Bowie and C. E. Bums, who wero at. the
House house party. Burns saw' Hauser
for the first time and recognized him
Immediately. "Your watch Is down In
Wichita," said Hauser. "It was a mighty
good timepiece, but I had to part with
It," he continued.
Hauser further intimated that If he hud
got away from Wichita, It was his Inten
tion to get to the southern border as
fast as possible and over Into Mexico.
"You never would have got me then," he
asserted, , '
In regard to the shooting of W. H.
Smith, Hauser refuses to talk, merely
saying, "I'll tell my story to the Judse
and Jury." ,
-Although it has not been definitely de
cided as yet. It Is believed that Hauser
will be arraigned the early part of the
week. He has already intimated that he
Intends to waive preliminary hearing, and
after being bound over will be taken at
once to the county Jail. "We've got
him," asserted Maloney, when asked if
he thought Hauser nyuld be convicted
of the Smith murder.

his appearance that he would, subscribe

"I don't care," the peasant responded.
"Tho less paper the better. But give me

He paid one-tenth of this sum In gold.
