Argument and Fight
Leigh, Neb., Feb. II. (Special

curred here last night, when Fred
Duhwin died just after he had been
taken home by Fred Paulsen, a
friend. Duhwin and Paulsen had

Duhwin and another farmer, George
Eisner, got" info a heated argument
over the crisis with Germany. Duh
win was very emphatic in expressing
sympathy with Germany, and' this
wound up in a fistic encounter on
the street later in the evening.
Duhwin and Paulsen took' lunch at
a local eating house and then pro-
ceedcd home. On the way Duhwin
bled profusely and lay down in the
vehicle when they reached the Paul
sen home, two miles southeast of
this iity. Duhwin was very ill and
had to be carried ir the house. He
died soon after beinu seated in a chair.
A local physician turned the case
over to the Platte county authorities.

single. He had been employed on a
farm near here. t j.o.
Edison Celebrates :
In Hi's Big Workshop
Orange, N. J, Feb. 11. Thomas A.
Edison iho was 70 years old to
day, was the guest of honor at, a
banquet given .in his workshop to
night by more than 2.00O- of his em
ployes and business associates. Let
ters of congratulation and good will
were read from President Wilson and
many others of note from all parts
of the world.
Mr. Edison went from his labora
tory direct to the banquet. The in
ventor's employes and business asso
ciates had been seated at tables which
filled a room covering an entire floor
of the Edison workshop. A birthday
cake ten and one-half feet in circum
ference and forty inches high was
placed in front of Mr. Edison. It
was aglow with seventy electric can
dles. In the center of it was a figure
of Liberty holding an electric torch.
Mr Edison made a brief speech in
which he thanked his "fellow work
ers" for their loyalty and their re
membrance of his birthday. He add
ed: "I feel fine and I am working
hard just now for my Uncle Samuel.
A letter from President Wilson, ad
dressed to the chairman of the com
mittee in charge, was as follows:
- "I wish with all 'my heart that I
might be present to take part in cele
brating Mr. Edison's seventieth birth
day.. It would be a real pleasure to
be able' to ay in public with what
deep and genuine admiration I have
followed his remarkable career of
achievement. I was an undergraduate
at the university when his first inven
tions captured the imagination of the
world, and ever since then I have re
tained the sense of magic which what
he did then created in my mind. He
seems always to have been in the
special confidence of nature herself.
His career already has made an in
dellible impression on the history of
applied science and I hope that he has
many years yet before him in which !
to make his record still more remark
able." . -

WARM TRIBUTES TO
Memorial University Celebra
tion Hears From Many
SLOAN' LEADS THE LIST
Cumberland Gap, Tenn, Feb.. 11.
A score or more of five-minute ad
dresses modeled on the brevity of
Lincoln's Gettysburg address consti
tuted a feature today .of the celebra
tion of the twentieth anniversary of
the founding of Lincoln Memorial
university. "Lincoln, the Orator,"
was the subject of one of these short
addresses by Congressman Charles
H. Sloan of Nebraska, who said:
"Lincoln was invited to speak at
Cooper Institute, New York City, in
1860. Again his fearing friends said:
'Do not go to New York. It is the
home of 'Seward.' 'That speech made
at Cooper Institute will defeat you.
.Again he had confidence in himself
and bis cause. He went. He made
that memorable speech. That speech
made him the presidential nominee.
.He revealed new and strange powers
of oratory to the east, it was not
the florid, ornate utterance of the
south. It was not the keen classic
analysis of the east. , It was that di
rect and convincing express' of the
west proceeding from a clta; brain
prompted by a good heart, that
swayed the judgment and clinched
conviction. Throughout Lincoln's
speeches either in debate with Doug
las,, at Cooper -Institute, or later in
his masterpiece at Gettysburg, his ex
pression was lucid and strong, his
embellishment was through ideas
rather than words. These illuminated
rather than adorned his central prop
oson. On the last mentioned occa
str Lincoln underwent the supreme
oratorical test. . .
One of Three Greatest.
"Daniel Webster, who divides with
Edmund Burke the oratorical honors
of the English tongue, says true elo
quence rests in the occasion, in the
theme and in the man. The occ?n
was the gathering of the nations
greatest to commemorate the might
iest battle and victory of the great
war. It was on that field of fearful
carnage. The speech was by the cen
tral figure of the triumphant north.
He stood -the test. He spoke as. man
had not spoken since Paul addressed
the Athenians on Mars Hill. Lincoln
spoke with the .boldness of Paul and
the authority of the Nazarene. It was
the third in point of time of the three
great short speeches of .earth He
brew, Greek, American."
Shaw's View of Lincoln.
Leslie M. Shaw, former secretary
of the treasury, explaining that every
one who attempts some revolutionary
Eolicy claims some similarity between
iniself and Lincoln, devoted his ad
dress to pointing out "what Lincoln
did not believe, touch or do-".
'He vs not an abolitionist," said
Mr. Shaw. "He never belonged to
or affiliated with the abolition party.
The platform on which Mr. Lincoln
was elected was not an abolition plat
form. Mr. Lincoln set his face strong
ly against the spread of slavery and
his party promised that alt free soil
should remain free, 'Thus far, but no
fSiThef,' was its position. It is note
worthy, however, that he signed the
emancipation proclamation with many
misgivings and after much delay. The
abolition of slavery by proclamation
was a war measure and an incident of
the war. When the' constitution of
the confederacy was adopted it ex
pressly prohibited a protective tariff
and guaranteed slavery.
Lincoln a Conservative.
"Mr. Lincoln believed in three co
ordinate branches of government and
he did not believe in any subordinate
branch. He did not believe that the
judiciary should advise the congress
or the executive. He did not believe
that the congress should interfere
with the interpretation of the admin
istration of the laws which it saw fit
to enact and he did not believe the
executive should attempt to dictate
to the courts or make appointments

Sound of Violent Explosion.
London, Feb. 1!. Earl M. Rice of
Portland, Ore, ship's surgeon of the
Mantola, adn the only American on
board, was among the survivors of
the torpedoed steamer, who arrived
in London today. He gave the Asso
ciated Press the following account of
the sinking: .v ''.'
'The first we knew was the sound
of a violent explosion, which shock
the ship from end to end at 10 p. m.,
on Thursday. The- sea was fairly
rough, but the ship maintained an
even heel and excellent order was
preserved, Captain Chavas immedi
ately ordered the boats launched.
Seven Lascars Killed,
.-"Seven Lascars were, killed by the
explosion. ,The remainder of those on
board Were unhijrt. Everybody got'
safely into teh boats with the excep
tion of the captain, the chief engi
neer and the wireless operator, who
were to follow us later.
"Nobody had yet seen the subma
rine and everybody in the boats was
peering into the haze in a vain effort
to catch a glimpse of the tell-tale
periscope An hour and a half after
the torpedoing the captain, the en
gineer and the wireless man got the
wireless working and began sending
out S. O. S. calls giving details of the
position. . i t
Reply Is Instant.'
"The reply came almost instantly,
but from an unexpected quarter. The
submarine, which evidently was lying
off in the saze two miles or so away,
nicked ud the wireless and began
shelling the Mantola from 4,000 yards-j
distance, meanwhile approaching at
full speed so that the range rapidly
decreased. Some of the shells were
loaded with shrapnel, which burst
about the Mantola, injuring the life
boats. We had retnrned close to the
Mantola, but the sailors' now tried to
increase the distance from the sub
marine's target. Fortunately, nobody
was hurt by the shells.
' Boat Plainly Visible.
"By this time the submarine was
plainly visible to everybody. A cool
headed passenger on my boat took
out a notebook and carefully marked
down a cross every time the subma
rine fired. His record shows tha?
forty-seven were fired.
' "The submarine was within 200 or
300 yards or the Mantola when an
unidentified vessel began to loom up
on the hazy horizon. The subma
rine's commander decided that discre
tion was the better part of valor,
closed his hatches quickly, submerged
and disappeared, to the unspeakable
relief of us all. The new. arrival
proved to be a British sloop, which
gradually picked up the survivors.
- "We were in our boat about six
hours. The Mantola sank in the eve
ning." '.'- -
Austria Parleys With U. S.
Over Mediterranean Travel
London, Feb. 11. Reports from
Vienna, received at The Hague and
transmitted by the Exchange Tele
graph company, say that the Austro
Hungarian government is negotiating
with American Ambassador Penfield
over the question xf allowing Ameri
cans to travel unhindered In the
Mediterranean, . hoping - thereby to
avert a severance of relations between
Austria-Hungary and the United
It is not expected, the dispatch
adds, that the negotiations will suc
ceed, because Germany is adverse to
giving any pledge regarding Ameri
cans on the ground that it would
weaken .the blockade and Austria
Hungary is unable to give a guaran
tee without German sanction.

Mrs.' Maud Ballington Booth, who

ex-convicts in all parts of the coun

as a woman preacher and prison
worker, spoke at a mass meeting at

day here, arriving late Saturday night.
speaking at the Auditorium in the
afternoon and at the First Congrega
tional church in the evening. She left
Omaha early this morning.
Keal prison reform, she told' the
fairly large audience at the Auditor
ium, isn't what the popular concep
tion gives it credit for. Base ball,
movies,, field days and what not is
only the froth on top of the wave the
real reform is instilling in the hearts
of the prisoners the spirit of God and
bringing work to idle hands so that
they can save their minds and muscles
from degeneration and be able to use
them when they gain their freedom,
Mrs. Booth declared. , -
v No Profit to State.
Mrs. Booth asserted that no state
has the right to profit by the work of
prisoners while their families are left
in destitution at home. She said that
she hoped for the time when families
will get the earnings of the prisoners
and the men themselves will feel as if
they are earning their board and lodging-
The founder of the Volunteers
critised sharply those who are op
posed to the prisoners working.
Out of the 25,000 men whom Mrs..
Booth said have come to her direct
from prison, 25 per cent of them, she
averred, have "made good." She de
clared that only 5 per cent of this
number went back to a Hfc of crime
and landed in prison again. Each
prisoner, when he starts sening his
sentence, should be studied and his
defects remedied ; the men should not
be looked upon merely as a mass of
convicts, waj one of her suggestions
for real prison reform. "Don't look
at them as bank burglars, forgers,
thieves, but as men," she said.

address, declared that she was glad

STUDY YOURSELF TO
NURSE ALL DEFECTS
Dean Fordyce of Nebraska
Tells Men at 'Y" How to
MUST TAKE AN INVENTORY
"Have you found . your defect,
physical or moral?"
"If you have not, you are'not ready
to start on the upgrade in manhood.
This is the way Dean Charles For
dyce, dean of the teachers' college of
the University of Nebraska, ap
proached his subject when talking at
the Young Men's Christian associa
tion auditorium yesterday afternoon
on "A Young Man's Personal Ques
tions." :, '
"Five generations back you had
thirty-two ancestors," he said. "Fif
teen generations back you had, not
thirty-two, but 32,000. From these
you inherited a tangle of forces that
go to make up you today. - From one
you inherited perhaps a strong body.
From one you inherited a love of the
beautiful. From another you inherit
ed weak eyes.
Keep Impulses in Check.
"You must make an inventory of
yourself to see what stuff you have at
hand to make a man. I regret that
there is probably not one in the room
but who has impulses which, if al
lowed full sway, would devour every
noble impulse in you... These must be
kept in check."
Dean Fordyce gave his own case
as an illustration of what could be
done in the way of finding one's weak
nesses and guarding against them. He
said he had found by a study of his
family tree that his great grandfather
had a weak digestive apparatus, that
his grandfather likewise was afflicted,
that his own father had the same
trouble, and then that in his own case
he was bothered greatly with his
stomach so that he never knew a well
day until he was 13 years old.
"But I stand before you today in
perfect health," he said. "That is be
cause I guarded and nursed this de
fect all my life."
