Warns of Danger
Of Auto Wreck on
Carter Lake Route
A woman who refused to give her
name, telephoned to police head
quarters last night and said that un
less the city commissioners got busy
at once, Omaha would again be
shocked soon by another big automo
She declared that the "S" curve on
the new Carter lake boulevard, be
tween Sixteenth street and Nineteenth
street is highly dangerous to autoists
on both angles.
"Of course, the curve can be no
gotiatcd safely if one drives slow, ami
there are no other cars on the curve
to confuse one, or if the roadbed is
not slippery," she declared. "The city
ought to erect stone fences on the
curves.. The cost would be less than
$100. If this is not done, some day an
auto will slip over the bank and kill
a few people in the fall to the plain
twenty . feet below."

their names written on the ballot,
have withdrawn, according to the list
of candidates issued yesterday in
printed form by W. A. Allen, secre
tary of state. A number of the re
publican nominees were also written
in by progressives and thus received
the progressive nomination. Wil
liam R. Green of Council Bluffs, who
was renominated for congress on the
republican ticket, was also nominated
on the socialist ticket, but declined.
Nebraska Man Held as Slaver.
Charged with violating the Mann
act, Samuel D. Wixson, .10 years old,
was arrested by Detective Blake and
George Soter of Sioux City, repre
senting the federal department of jus
tice. Wixson was taken to Lincoln,
Neb., last night. He is alleged to have
transported and induced Mrs. Clara
Blunberg, 30 years old, to accompany
him from Nebraska to Des Moines.
Mrs. Blunberg, said to be the mother
of three children, has already re
turned trJ Lincoln, according to re
ports here. Wixson was formerly a
member of the Lincoln police de
partment. Booze Start! Fight.

Compel Autos to Stop.
James H. Wilson, member of the
state railroad commission, proposes,
a law to compel all drivers of auto
mobiles to stop at railroad crossings.
"Drivers of autos become careless
about approaching railroad cross
ings," said Mr. Wilson. "The per
sons who are killed in auto-train
smashups are not tourists or persons
not familiar with the road and un
aware of the presence of railroad
tracks. The people who meet with
accidents on the crossings are old
time residents who have every
knowledge of the conditions in the
Has Films of Mobilisation.
The mobilization of the Iowa na
tional guard is to be preserved to
history by means of moving picture
films 'taken by the State Historical
department. Several thounand feet
of the films have been finished. The
department will put them on in the
various towns and cities of the state
and the proceeds, above the cost of
the films and other expenses, will go
to the Iowa national guard. '
Order Cavalry In.
All the members of the four cavalry
troops of the Iowa National Guard
who refused to take the federal oath
of service and were therefore allowed
to . go to their homes, have been or
dered by Adjutant General Logan to
report to Des Moines at once and go
to Fort Des Moines, where they will
get ready to go to the border. This
is in compliance with orders received
from the War department. There
were 103 men in ail who refused to
take the federal oath. The War de
partment, however, has the authority
to use these men anywhere in the
United States under their oath of
enlistment in the Iowa National
Guard, but they cannot be sent across
the border. The men will be equipped
at Fort Des Moines and as soon as
this is done they will be sen to join
their companies at Brownsville, ac
cording to the present plan. If any
of the men refuse to obey the call
the department has the right to ar
rest them and order them to serve.
However, it is said that the men are
now willing to enter the service.
