IV A. WELSH, ldeteo.-olo6 lit.
New York, July 13. A monster
shark whose stomach contained part
of a human body, was killed at Key
port, N. J., today, according to in
formation received at the weather
bureau here from the observer at
Long Branch, N. J.
The waters of the Atlantic sea
board are infested with sharks.
While hundreds of armed men
motor boats were patrolling the New
Jersey coast today in search of the
man-eating monsters which have
now caused the death of four bath
ers, the British sloop Sir George
Somers arrived from Bermuda with
a score of sharks the crew had
caught in the gulf stream during
their twelve days voyage to this port.
The last was caught off the New
Jersey coast the day before yester
day. The crew said that the big
fish were numerous and hungry.
They followed the ship and snapped
viciously at bait. Those caught were
pulled in with hook and line and
killed as they were hoisted aboard.
Dread ot the monsters has vir
tually cleared the middle Atlantic
coast beaches of bathers, according
toi reports received here today,
while many summer resort proprie
tors are enclosing their bathing
places with steel nets.
The shark killed today weighed 300
pounds and was eleven feet long. It
was killed near the mouth of Mata-
wan Creek, N. J., and is undoubtedly
the same fish which yesterday in
vaded the creek and killed two per
sons, the weather bureau's informant
Shark Kills Man and Boy.
Matawan, N. J., July 13. Hun
dreds of armed men in row boats and
launches were hunting today for the
man-eating shark that yesterday
killed a boy and man and dangerously
injured another youth in Matawan
creek and caused a reign of terror all
along the New Jersey coast.
It was reported this morning that
another man named Baldwin was at
tacked and killed by a shark at Key
oort. N. J.. at the mouth of the creek.
The body of Lester Stillwell, 12
years old, has not been recovered and
it is believed the shark devoured the
W. Stanley Fisher, 24 years old,
who was attacked by the shark, when
he tried to rescue the Stillwell boy,
died uoon reaching the shore.
Joseph Ralph Sunn, 10 years old,
was in a precarious condition, in- a
New... Brunswick hospital -'todax.,
where it was said the injuries h re
ceived from the shark might prove
r Batbing Nearly Suspended.
The scare that has been felt along
the New Jersey shore, mainly in sum
mer resorts, since the first shark raid
on bathers, has virtually suspended
all beach bathing. Even at Coney
Island precautions were taken against
a visit of the shark. The tragedy
yesterday was all the more startling
because it occurred in waters sixteen
miles from the ocean.
Matawan creek is a tidewater
stream about fifty feet wide and from
eight to fifteen feet deep. It empties
into Raritan bay. The mouth of the
creek it at Keyport. The shark, to
get there from the Atlantic ocean, had
to round Sandy Hook, cross through
the lower bay into Raritan bay at
the southern end of Staten island.
The first person who saw the nine
foot shark yesterday was Captain
Thomas B. Cottrell of Keyport, as he
started up the creek about noon.
Fifty or more persons were bathing,
Captain Cottrell says, and he warned
About the same time a number of
men on a bridge saw the shark glide
by. Captain Cottrell hurried up the
creek in his motor boat to warn
bathers, most of whom left the waters
immediately. The others ignored the
warning because they did not believe
an attack by a shark probable sixteen
miles from the open sea.
Four persons now have been killed
by a rnan-eating shark and two
maimed along the New Jersey coast
during the last ten days.
State Troops Sent

Springfield, 111., July 13. State
troops today were ordered to La

1,200 men on strike took part in the
rioting. Stars and clubs were taken
from a squad of private policemen,
who attempted to guard workmen en

No attempt was made to operate
the mills today and there was no
repetition of yesterday's trouble.

the great North Sea naval fight of
May 31 and June 1, there is no de

Dr. Aked's Report Gloomy.
Rev. Dr. Charles F. Aked of San
Francisco, one of the American dele
gates to the neutral conference for
continuous mediation, sitting in
Stockholm, was in Berlin on a mis
sion of peace at the time of the North
Sea fight. It is commonly reported
he was there by invitation of the
German government. At any rate he
seems to have had no difficulty in ob
taining audiences from most of the
higher officials. The peace' confer
ence had entertained the hope that
Germany would outline peace terms
of a character so extremely moderate
as to command immediate respect in
all the , neutral countries, thus bring
ing about a public opinion to which
belligerents eventually would nave
Dr. Aked brought back a very
gloomy report. There seemed to be
no thought anywnere tnat tne war
would end within another year. The

would be demanded bv the new
dominant war party, coupled with the
governmental announcement that
peace could De nad omy upon a
basis of consideration for the mili

ardent of the peace advocates abid

short while before the naval battle
the German element in Stockholm
was proclaiming the fact that Ger

Even the extreme pacificists in
Germany are said to have, told the
emissary from the neutral conferences
that the time was not ripe for over
tures of peace. Irrespective of the
conflicting claims of victory, it was
said the naval fight had lengthened
the war by twelve months at least.
The only thing the pacifist!, could do
now was to wait tor the right mo

Baltimore, Md., July 13. Unload
ing of the cargo of the German super
submarine Deutschland was complet
ed early today and the ship's rise re
vealed that- the estimates of its size
have been exaggerated. Instead of
being more than 300 feet long and 30
feet wide, its length is not more than
250 feet and its width is less than 25
feet. Its over-all draft, figured sub
merged, shows that it needs at least
thirty-two feet for complete submer
gence. Through all the feverish activity
of the last hours of the unloading,

Judge of Federal Circuit Court
-, .of Appeals Hands Down a
Damage Case Opinion,
MORRIS & CO. TS. KOEINEK
The ;right of the Nebraska state su
preme court commission to adjudicate
cases brought before it was upheld in
an opinion handed down by Walter
I. Smith of Council Bluffs, judge of
the United States circuit court of ap
peals. Smith's ruling was made in the
case of Morris & Co. against John
Korinek, growing out of a damage
suit in which Korinek was awarded
$7,500 damages in Nebraska courts
for' personal injuries received while
employed at the Morris plant.
Korinek's suit was tried before
Judge Leslie and the verdict sus
tained in supreme court after a hear
ing before the commission.
. Counsel for Morris & Co. then
asked Judge Munger in federal court
to enjoin collection of the judgment,
on grounds that supreme court com
mission of Nebraska was in conflict
with the constitution of this state
and that its operation had deprived
the defendant of its rights to equal
treatment under the law accorded by
the constitution of the United States.
Munger Denies Injunction.
Munger denied the injunction and
the case was appealed to the United
States circuit court of appeals.
"Smith's decision was rendered on an
application to restrain .collection ot
the judgment until, the circuit court
had . rendered a decision on the ap
peal. i Smith issued a temporary injunc
tion some days ago, but his order va
cates this injunction and refuses to
grant a restraining order. Unless the
Uinted States; supreme court inter
venes. Korinek will be able to get
him money at once. His attorney, W.
K. Patrick, applied tor a writ ot exe
cution. Smith, in upholding the right of
the supreme court commission to
pass upon this case, says that the
Nebraska supreme court has already
recognized the supreme court com
mission as a constitutional body, , so
far as the Nebraska state constitu
tion is concerned.
Failed to Challenge.
He rules, however, that Morris &
Co. probably would have had the
right to refuse to have their case
heard by the commission, but that as
they failed to challenge, the body
when the case was pending, they
have no righ to do so now.
Smith further rules that the com
mission did not deprive Morris &
Co. of their rights under the consti
tution of the United States. . -
It is considered, possible that
Smith's decision will be permitted to
stand unchallenegcd, thereby for the
present at least determining the le?
gality of the supreme court commis
sion, so far as its constitutionality is
concerned. . '

SAYS SAN ANTONIO
IS AN ARMED CAMP
Texan, Visiting in Omaha, Tells
of Conditions on Border as
Caused by Mobilization.
SEE REPUBLICAN STRENGTH
"The streets of San Antonio re
semble an armed camp these days,"
declared Walter 'Steeves, a business
man of that city, who is visiting in
Omaha. "There are about 10,000
troops there all the time, coming and
going every day. A large number of
regulars were stationed at San An
tonio last spring, but most of them
have been displaced Jby guardsmen
"The main streets are congested
with traffic caused by the mobiliza
tion, and it is not uncommon to see
a dozenl or more big army trucks
loaded with srmy supplies and troop
ers going down the street Business
ft good in San Antonio on account of
the money which the guardsmen
spend. . . V
"It ii s queer thing to us Texans
to see how very little many of the
eastern Guard know about our coun
try. Several of the members of the
New York Guard had an idea that
when they had a little leisure' in San
Antonio that they would hire a jit
ney and run down and take a look J
ac me Dorqer, dui wnen iney oiacov
ered that it was about as far from
San Antonio to (he border as from
New York to Albany, they decided
to wait until they were ordered south.
"Many of the guardsmen, particu
larly those from the east, are taking
the mobilization more in the nature
of a long vacation than anything else.
It is not an uncommon sight to see a
private in the rear ranks of one of the
eastern regiments riding about in his
automobile, which he has had shipped
down to him for use in the hours
when he is off duty.
Democrats Admire Hughes.
"The. Texas politicians are having
a hard row to hoe this year. They
are largely born and bred democrats
and can hardly imagine themselves
doing anything except voting the
democratic ticket, but they are not
satisfied with the Wilson policy in
Mexico and they admire Hughes. The
republicans are making an active cam
paign this year and have a good deal
more of a chance to win than ever
before. The Texas democrats are in
the queer position of criticising Wil
son bitterly themselves, but when an
outsider makes any complaint they
rush to his defense. .Personalty, I
think that in the fall the old habit of
voting ; the democratic ticket will be
so strong that they, will vote to re
elect.Wilson, but if the men who were
murdered in cold blood at Carrizal
are not. avenged it may prove the un
doing of Wilson. ; . . - . -
"I should think' that this mobili
zation ought to be a fine thing for
the manufacturers of Omaha. They
ought to be in a position to supply
many of fbe contracts that the army
commissary department is making,
and their facilities for shipment and
delivery certainly should be far su
perior to those of the eastern manu
facturers. It takes an immense lot
of foodstuffs and other supplies to
provide for the men under arms, Tons
and tons of flour, meat, beans and
so on are shipped into and out of El
Paso and San Antonio all the time."
Mr. Steeves expects to go east on
business in a few days and mereW
