VIOLENT FIGHTING ON MEUSE
Faria, May 23. Fighting continued
with extreme violence cm both banks
of the Meusc along the Verdun front
during the whole night. Two Ger
man counter attacks on French posi
tion on Hill .104 failed completely,
the war office announced this after
noon. The French made further gain
within Fort Douaumont, The Ger
mans now hold only a small angle on
the northeastern corner of the fort.
The battle around Hill ,)04 was
especially severe. In attacking
French positions on the west side of
the hill the Germans used liquid gas,
the official statement says, and pene
trated one of the French trenches,
but were dislodged at once. On the
east aide of the hill the Germans at
tacked after intense artillery prep
aration, but were not permitted to
reach the French lines.
The principal fighting east of the
Meuse was in the sector between
Thiaumont and Douaumont. The
Germans attacked in mass formation
and are said to have suffered enor
mous losses. They succeeded in re
orciipying one of the trenches north
of Thiaumont Farm, which had been
captured by the French,

winners in tlfr various events.
"We will offer enough money to
make it worth whiL:' for the best rid
ers and ropers in tile United States to

The convention adopted a resolu

the deadliest enemies of the Amer

"to take a decided stand in favor of
the principles laid down by our Lord
Jesus with reference to this matter."
As recommended by the resolutions

to the electric chair for the murder j
of his wealthy father-in law, John K.

day by an array of witnesses whose
testimony was remarkable for its di

the arsenic with which he already has
confessed that he poisoned his 72-year-old
father-in-law, to the physi- i
eians who afterwards examined "the j

To add to the prisoner's discom- j

to the district attorney will play a

One witness, Joscnh Stretter. a i

today that when Or. Waite left that

Dr. Muller also told of Wane's
