THE BEE : OMAHA, SATURDAY, JULY 15, 1915. BODY OF BOY VICTIM OF SHARKIS FOUND Corpse of Lester Stillwell, Bit . ten Nearly in Two, Discov ered in Hatawan Greek. COAST GUAED JOINS HUNT New York, July 14. At ilmost low tide today the body of Lester Still well was found in Matawan creek (boat 200 feet from the spot where he disappeared after being attacked by a shark. The body had been bit ten nearly in to above the waist line. Shark hunters at Matawan creek believe they have this shark penned up in the creek behind a series of wire nets which have been strung across the creek at intervals from its mouth to the scene of the tragedy, sixteen miles from the entrance. Men, armed with shotouns. rifles and harpoons, patrolled the waters of the creeM again today: ?omt or mem sara iney. had seen five of the big fish near the point where W. Stanley Fisher and Lester Stillwell were killed. They made preparations for a shark drive at noon today, when the ebb tide will .leave only a few feet of water in the creek. Dynamite will be exploded again in an effort to atun the sharks and bring them to the surface. , Joseph Dunn, the 10-year-old boy whose leg was terribly torn by the invader of Matawan creek, is in a hos pital in New Brunswick, N. J. Little hope it entertained for his recovery. ' Coast Guard Joint Hunt Washington, July 14. Tragic ttor ies of attack by tharkt upon bathert along the New Jersey coast were dis cussed at today t meeting of the cab inet. Later Secretary McAdoo an nounced that the coast guard would be ordered to do what it could to ward clearing the coast of the dan- Jrerous fish and preventing further oss of life. Instructions were sent by ' the Treasury deoartment both to the coast guard cutters and life-saving stations to aid in killing sharks and when possible warn resorts of their nroximitv. Secretary Redfield told the cabinet that the bureau ot nsneries naa oeen unable to offer any scientific explana tion of the unprecedented attacks upon human beings. A formal statement made public by Acting Commissioner Moore of ine nsneries Bureau eaiu we uhiwu experts reluctantly had been com pelled to come to the conclusion that no certain effective preventive meas ures could be recommended, but ad vised a shark-catching campaign and warned batnert to stay in snauow water. Attention was called to the small number of attacks compared with the vast army of bathers, with the suggestion that there appeared to be no reason for panic among the people at seaaide resorts. Case of Discharged Postmaster Will Come Up Next Week V North Platte, Neb, July 14. (Spe cial.) The final round of the fight of John G. Porter to retain hit posi tion at postmaster of Bridgeport will be settled in the North Platte divis ion of the United Statet dittrict court The case bat been brought Into fed eral court for the final settlement of the point of law Involved and will bt triea oeiorc rcacrai juugc neuu rough of Omaha next week. ' ludire R. W. Hobart of the Morrill county district court granted l re straining order to prevent rostai in SDector W. M. Coble of Omaha from turning the postal property over to another party. Porter, who wat or dered to retire from otnee iy tne postmaster general's office, when he wrote a sarcastic letter relative to an additional appropriation for the Bridgeport office, contends that he was placed in office by the president and the United Statet senate and that it does not lie within the province of the nostmaster general to depose him. According to Coble's interpretation of the law, the postmaster general has this authority.' It is to settle thit point of law that the case will be tried before judge wooarougn.

French Prepare to Advance. There was no news this moraine of important developments on the re mainder of the western front, but at last accounts the French were pre paring to resume their offensive south of the Somme, while the Germans were still hammering at the defenses of Verdun. The opinion is held in France, however, that continuation of the Somme battle will compel the Germans to slacken their efforts at Verdun, which now have been in pro gress nearly five months, especially as the French estimate the Germans lost 12,000 men in counter attacks on Contalmaison. Struggle Along Stokhod. The Russians have made no notice able advance on any part of their front since they gained the Stokhod river, where the struggle continues desperately.
