Washington, Sept. 28. More than 160 leaders of the

Indictments will be handed in to the

160 and 170 persons, resident in al
most every section of the country, are
named in the indictments.

Officials here feel that in many in

guilty of treason, but because of the

the grand jury qto find indictments on
the broader charge of seditious con

Indictments Returned at Chi
cago and Haywood Among
the First of More Than
Score to Be Taken In.
Judge Manoah B. Reese, judge of
the supreme court of Nebraska, died
at a Lincoln hospital yesterday at
the age of 78 years. He has been ail
ing all summer, most of that time be
ing spent in a hospital, and was not
able to rally because of his age.
Judge Reese was born in Macoupin
county, Illinois, in 18J9. He received
a common school education and then
attended a seminary for two years.
j (By Aimorinted Press.)
Chicago, Sept. 28. Formal return
of a blanket indictment charging a nation-wide
conspiracy to hamper the
government during the war was made
todaf in the United States district
court here against 166 leaders of the
Industrial Workers of the World.
Arrests speedily followed. Almost
before the court proceedings had
reached the stage of the discharge of
the jury, deputy marshals were on
their way to the local Industrial
Workers of the World headquarters
in automobiles donated and driven by
women and quickly returned to the
federal building with prispners.
In the first hour 35 men were haled
into the office and were questioned by
men of the bureau. Among the first
to be taken in custody was William
D. Haywood, secretary of the national
organization of the Industrial Work
ers of the World.
An explanatory statement by the
government attorneys who have di
rected the investigation of the sedici
ous conspiracy, the crime of which
the men named in the indictments are
"The prosecutions are under sec
tions 6, 19 and 37 of the criminal code
and under the espionage act. Only
leaders in conspiracies or those per
sonally culpable in connection with
the perpetration of crimes against the
United States are Included as de
fendants found. i
I. W. W. a Degenerate.
Commenting on the fact that the
indictment was aimed at one but I.
W. W. members, Judge Fitts gave
this definition of the I. W. W.:
"The I. W. W. differs from social
ists and from every form of legitimate
labor organization," he said. "The I.
W. W. is a degenerate; its doctrine is
treachery, built on the teaching of the
employment of secret and covert de
structive methods intended to wreck
the employer and through destruction
of production and transportation dis
able society and the government it
self. The object at this time being to
render the enemy stronger and our
dear country weak in the resistance
of that strength."
Called for Trial.
When all of the indicted men have
been arrested the cases will be called
for trial here and as rapidly as the
arrests are made the prisoners will be
brought beiore the federal authorities
here. The espionage act under which
the indictments were found permit
ting that pioceedure.
After he had been questioned hy
Hinton C. Clabaugh of the depart
ment of justice, William D. Haywood,
general secretary and treasurer of the
I. W. W., was held in default, bail
being fixed at $2'5,000.

Killed When Two
Kellyville, Ok!., Sept. 28. Bodies of
(lly Associated Pre.)
Efforts to break into the new
ground won by the British in the re
newal of the Flanders offensive on
Wednesday are bcins continued by
the Germans. Failing to shake the
Rriti.sh line elsewhere they tried it out
last night at Zonncbekc, where the
British have pushed far along the
road to Roulers. The British artillery,
machine gun and rifle fire was too
much for them, however, and the at
tack was broken up.
Zonncbekc is an important point
for the British and their previous ef
forts to reach and maintain a hold on
it had been desperately resisted by the
Germans. Their present position in
the village places them within a half
dozen miles of the important north
and south railway line connecting
Lille with Ostend, on the coast, the
cutting of which or its domination at
even medium range artillery fire
would seriously handicap the Ger
mans in their Flanders operations.
In the Tower Hamlets and Polygon
wood regions, toward the British
right flank, the clearing up process
which followed Wednesday's battle
was carried out further last night and
the Germans were driven from iso
lated positions to which strong par
ties of them were clinging.
There has been little other mili
tary activity of a nature to call for
mention in the official statements ex

French front. The Germans of the

over seats and down aisles to reach
the struggling men. The sergeant-at-arms,
hurriedly grasping the mace, his
badge of authority, ran toward the
combatants. Disordc reigned in the
galleries, where people rose from their
seats and rushed to the rail to see into
the pit of the house.
Friends separated the men without
difficulty and led them to the cloak
rooms. The only marks of combat

Hcflin's usually immaculate white
Order jvas restored as quickly as
it had been disturbed.
Committee Refuses to Act.
After a heated session today, the
house rules committee refused to act
on resolutions proposing congres
sional investigatiin of Representative
Heflin's charges that a number of
members of congress "had acted sus
piciously" about the time Count von
Bernstorff asked his government for
authority to spend $50,000 to influence

' Trying to Save Life of Brother
The love of his brothers and sis

some of their blood to him, was not
enough to save the life of Sylvester
McCreary, 2422 North Fifty-eighth
avenue, who died at the Nicholas
Serin hospital Thursday night.
Several times during the last two
weeks, while he was hovering be
tween life and death, two brothers
and a sister submitted to an opera

to save his life. Mr. McCreary was
in such a weakened condition, the
result of several hemorrhages, that
their sacrifice was vain.
He is survived by his father, three
brothers and a sister.

Eight Army Men
Involved in Spy
Plot Against U.S,
San Francisco, Sept. 28. Five
members of the United States aviation
corps, ail army recruiting officer and
two navy ensigns were said today by
federal officials to be involved in a
spy plot, alleged to have been headed
by Lieutenant Erwin Frederich
Schneider of the German navy and
Theodore Kasinger, department store
employe, both of whom were taken
into custody here recently. .
This disclosure came as the result
of an order from the Department of
Justice providing for the immediate
removal of Schneider and Kasinger
from the county jail to an internment
camp on Angel island, which contains
Franz Bopp, former GTrman consul
general here, and his aide, Baron E.
H. von Schack, former vice consul.
The authorities refused to divulge
the nature of the alleged participation
of the army and navy officers in the
plot. They said all information on
the case had been sent to San Diego
and Los Angeles, where it was under
stood the conspiracy centered.
At the time Schneider and Kasinger
were taken i ito custody federal agents
asserted the two had associated with
four Austrian army officers subse
quently detained at Laredo, Tex., and
who, it wali believed, were planning to
embark from Mexico for Germany or
Austria. It was said they wre sus
