POSHING HOPE OF
President fo Stockmen at Chey-
mne Says Eeri Will Be Gob-
bled if American Leave.
STOLEN RIGHT AND LEFT
Cheyenne, Wyo., Jan. 18. Co-ordination
of all branches of the meat in
dustry, the work of the association's
marketing committee, the Mexican
aitnation and its relation to the stock
man in Mexico, and advocacy of clas
sification of the stock yards as public
utilities, were features of the address
of Dwight B. Heard of Phoenix, pres
ident, to the American National Live
Stock association on the occasion of
its twentieth, annual meeting toilav
in Cheyenne. ' -'
President Heard reviewed at length
the course of the live stock industry
in the last year, stating that drouth
had figured in the cattle industry to
ucn an extent that prices paid lor
cattle last year had varied from $4.50
to U a hundredweight.
Big Year for Sheep.
The record of receiots at eleven
principal points, he Said, showed an
increase in hogs sent to stock yards
of '4,500,000 head. The last year was
tne Best in History tor sheep, he said,
the 1916 lamb crop being reported to
have been the largest ever recorded.
' Discussing co-ordination of phases
6f the industry, he said, "the vital
questions before this convention are
How we can devise more efficient and
economical means for the production
of live stock: how we can maintain
and develop the means for transport
ing tnis live stock at reasonable rates;
how we can eliminate speculation in
feeding; now we can improve condi
tions at stock yards." Mr. Heard said
the. representatives of si number of
large packing oomaanlei had- with
drawn opposition to investigation of
the meat industry on condition that
(he stockmen would do alt they coaMd
10 secure a tun and tair inquiry.
1 Must Take Some Action. ' '
t Mf.-Heard urged the convention to
take some action looking to the pro
jection of the American cattlemen
with interests in Mexico.-
"There seems to be a general feel
ing among Americans interested in
the cattle industry m - Mexico," said
Mr. Heard, "that if the Pershing col
limn is withdrawn, American cattle in
X(Ytrn twill kj taiemti iiifliarimfna !..
ky the rival Mexican factions."

Nebraska State Poultry, association
show brought out by far the greatest
crowd which has ytt attended. Even
"before the doors were opened in the
morning there were many here from
.surrounding counties and the city
ready to attend the big exhibition.

their birds in several different classes,
;They were Arthur Gillette and Elmer

.'specializing in Barred Plymouth

Charged with the murder of his
beautiful wife, Crystal Holland Spa
nell, and of Lieutenant Colonel Mat
thew C. Butler of the Sixth cavalry,
United States army, Harry J. Spa-
nell is on trial at San Antonio.
Spanell was the proprietor of a
hotel. His wife wai the daushter of
a wealthy banker and ranchman, and
met Spanell while ahe was attending
Baylor university. Lieutenant Colonel
Butler was married. He was stationed
at Washington for a year at the War
college and had a wide acquaintance
in army circles,
. 1 he motive for the killing was still
a mystery when the trial opened. The
home life of the Spanells, seemingly,
was ideal. On the evening of July 20,
after a drive about the city of Alpine,
the Spanells invited Colonel Butler
to join ' them. A few minutes later
Spanell walked into the jail and sur
rendered to the sheriff.
"I have killed them both," he said.
Spanell stopped his car a few
blocks from the hotel, the police said,
and began shooting with an automatic
pistol and a six-shooter. The bodies
of bath. Mrs. Spanell and Colonel
Butler, who were occupying the rear
seat, were riddled with bullets.

the effect that the St Theodore haa
been transformed into a raider.
The Chamber of Commerce and
consulatea at Pernumbuco are devot
inf much attention to the care of the
ship-wrecked crews. There is no con
firmation of the alleged loss of 400
Sunk Without Warmnf.
A Hernambuco newspaper, the
Journal Pe Queno, prints a statement
attributed to the purser of the Eng
lish steamer Netherby Hall that the
raider sank an English ship without
warning and that 400 persons are
believed to have 'ost their lives.
The commander of the raider is
said to have declared that he attacked
only freighters and did not interfere
with passenger boats.
According to the unofficial infor
mation, the raider has a crew of 250
men, including four officers of the
German navy. According to reports
circulated here, the officers of the
Japanese ship captured were shot on
account of the resistance they of
fered. Another report saya that
twenty-two English sailora were com
pelled to work in the engine room
of the raider.
Philadelphia. Jan. 17. The British
consul general here said today that at
least sixty-three American: were
aboard the Britis steamers Georgic
and King George which sailed from
here and which are reported sunk by
a German raider. Sixty of the Ameri
cans were aboard the Georgic, having
shipped as Wsemen, foremen or as-
Detective "Listens In" While Drug
Addicts Phone for More of the Stuff
"For God's sake, send me some
stuff. My nerves are on fire, kid."
"I want dope and I want it quick.
Get it to me in some way."
Such frantic appeals from dope
fiends, men and women, came in over
the telephone at 1617 Chicago street
while Detective Cunningham,
cramped in a tiny room on the second
floor where he had smuggled him
self, listened on an extension tele
phone. An agent of Omaha's "dope
trust." whose alleged leaders the po
lice arrested Wednesday night, was
answering the phone calls downstairs,
directly beneath the eavesdropping
detective, and all unaware that names
and addresses of dope addicts were
being jotted down.
"1 can't give it to you, nohow,"
the man downstairs would answer. "I
haven't got the stuff and I can't tell
you when we'll get some more."
Hysteria sometimes showed in the
voice of the applicant at the other
end of the wire as he or she learned
that their "cubes" of morphine, co
caine, heroin or raw opium could not
Police arrested three more in con
nection wtih the dope ring. They
gave the names of John Price and
George and Leona Stephens. They
are white persons and were caught
at the Eureka hotel on North Six
teenth street. They are alleged to
be patrons of the Chicago street place,
from which William Spady, negro
pugilist, and Frank Housky, were ar
rested in the first raid.
Detectives are now scouring the
district for "Jew" Johns, who was
taken to the police station with Dave
Gilinsky, a drug clerk, who is said
to be the "master mind" of the dope
ring. Gilinsky gave a key to his
room to "Jew" Johns when the pair
were in the patrol and instructed
Johns to get a suitcase there. Johns
obeyed as soon as he was released,
and the police believe the missing
suitcase contains about $1,000 worth
of dope. . Johns is believed to have
headed for Sioux City.

Mattes Bill Provides
Board of Health Program
(From a Staff Correapondant.)
Lincoln, Jan. 18. (Special.) In a
bill introduced by Senator Mattes of
Otoe today a suitable administrative
program for the state board of health
is promulgated. The bill limits the
powers of the board of secretaries
instead of giving them greater pow
ers as they desire.
A state health officer is provided
at a salary of $3,000 a year, who must
be a graduate of five years' standing
from an accerdited medical school.
The advisory board is still retained
and made up of two regulars, two
eclectics and two homeopaths, who
give counsel when called upon and
has exclusive power only in the
granting of licenses.
Three departments are provided in
the bill under the state board, a bu
reau of epidemics, bureau of public
health engineering and a bureau of
vital statistics at salaries of $2,500,
$2,000 and $1,200, respectively.
To maintain the bureaus will cost
$25,300 a year.
From a fluff Cofrwaondant.)
Lincoln, Jan. 18. (Special) The
republican minority in the house is
anxious that some good legislation
should be enacted at thisfsession even
if the democrats do get credit for do
ing it and for the purpose of saving
the state the expense of loss of time
because of excessive oratory, Repre
sentative Cronin today sent up a mo
tion that called for referring art reso
lutions to the 'rules committee atcr
they have been read, the committee
to report back those of interest and
cut out all duplications.
So far much time has been wasted
on resolutions which in many in
stances cover like subjects and it was
for the purpose of preventing the
daily flow of words that Mr. Cronin
sought to make the rules committee
a board of censorship.
Mr. Taylor opposed the motion
saying he thought the cure worse
than the disease. Mr. Taylor though!
that there was a disposition to be too
hasty in some things and admitted
that on road legislation he had "gone
off a tittle half cocked," himself. The
motion did not meet with favor.
