nlbert Henderson, a colored boy
about 16 years old, was run over and
instantly killed by a southbound
Cross-town car on the Twenty-fourth

The boy was coasting down the hill
on a bicycle, according to Motorman
H. Wilson, and was thrown from his
wheel in attempting to cros in front
of the car, ' which was going in the
same direction. The boy's wheel ran
across the corner of the fender of the
street car. , , ;
Witnesses say that the boy rolled
in front of the car a distance of ten
feet before he rolled under the fender
and the car passed over him. The
body was found wedged in front of

had been instantaneous. The body

today toward lining up their strength
through party conferences.
An instance of a split even in the
closest party ranks was given the
congress yesterday, when M. Tcher
noff, the spokesman for the workmen
and soldiers, referred to General Kal
edines, the chief of the Cossacks, as
that "miserable Kaledines." One of
the Cossacks delegates shouted, "You
dare not attack General Kaledines."
Another Cossack leaped to his feet,
shouting, "Go on, Kaledines is a
traitor." Unusual vigilance was ob
served by the military authorities of
Petrograd' last night in connection
with the congress. The guards at
the winter palace were increased and
they halted many passersby, as did
the guards at other government build

"Our gallant allies," the war min
ister said, "have replied to the das
tardly offer by unconditionally re
jecting it, believing, as I believe, that
the Kussian army still will bare its
breast to free the fatherland."
The general said he would handle
the army without gloves and pointed
out its defects, saying:
"The Twelfth army before Riga did
not refuse to fight and die, but we
need men to fight and win victories.
The fleet does not refuse to fight, Lut
at the same time it murders its offi
cers. We hear many worthy words
about the army and fleet, but we have
a great many deserters. The glorious
victories on the southwest front in
July terminated in a disgraceful re
treat. "In the rear we have reinforce
ments, but the men at the front do not
accept them because they bring dis
cord and regiments with historic
records cannot accept such men."
General Verkhovsky repeated his
announced program of changing the
army commanders, educating the
troops along free revolutionary lines
based on mutual trust between offi
cers and men and the disbanding of
the useless hordes in the rear. The
speech contained little comfort for
pacifists in the audience.
The war minister is a young man
about the age of Kerensky. He spoke
in a low, even voice and referred fre
quently to notes, gradually working
up to the climax, when he declared
in a ringing voice:
"The war must be continued until
with certainty we have achieved the
peace desired by all peace with

To Encourage Production.
"The government ot the United
States through the food administra
tion is seeking in every way possible
to encourage and increase production
of live stock in this country to meet
demands of the war and the dsmands
of foreign countries after the war,
where herds have been greatly de
pleted. To increase the expenses inci
dent to the marketing of live stock
will retard the efforts of the govern
ment to increase production and while
it may be argued that these commis
sions are paid by the producer, as a
matter of fact in the end they retard
production and the consumer must
Food to Win War.
"This great world war will probably
be won by the side that can furnish
food and munitions to its soldiers and
citizens for the longest time .The sit
uation today is acute; there is a world
shortage of food products and of
transportation facilities to deliver the
products available to the seat of war.
Submarines are destroying a consid
erable amount of such products in
course of transmission. Many coun
tries with a rurplus of grain and meat
can not transport them an account
of war conditions The United States
by virtue of location must furnish the
necessary food for our soldiers and
soldiers of our allies and for the starv
ing people in the war-stricken dis
tricts. We have no such normal sur
plus as will be required. It can only
j be obtained by the elimination of all
i waste and by conserving in, every pos
sible way the foods of this country
and by encouraging greater pro
ductions in the future.
; Half Meat Products Here.
' "Mr. Pinchot of the food administra
tion has stated that the United States
today owns approximately one-half of
alt the meat products of the world.
The price of these products is the
highest it has been for many years
and yet with the ever-present knowl
edge that the war may suddenly come
to an end, it is difficutt to induce
producers to increase their herds.
The daily receipts of all classes of
grass cattle on this exchange show
that the cattle men of' this country
are inclined to reduce rather than in-
crease. If the war should continue for
two or three years longer, unless a
material increase is effected, we will
not be able to supply our soldiers and
our allies with the ' meat they will
need and so, in the interest of the
great humane policy of "the govern
ment, all men are called ' upon to
To correct what he held to be a
misapprehension among the commis
sion men and traders, he said:
"The policy of the food administra
tion, both state and national,, is not
to interfere with the legitimate busi
ness of thos engaged in the busi
ness of. handling food products, but to
shut out entirely ruinous speculation
in food and fuel during the war; It
will mean that we may license all
live stock stealers, coal dealers, pack
ers and people handling meats and
food products generally, in order to
break down the speculation in food,
fuel and the necessities of life, which
has been going on for years. ,
"I am willing to stand by all my
public utterances, but amnot willing

Persistent Advertising Is the Road
TK TTTT ! : A
Number of Super-Sixes at present prices limited.
Practically all makers have already increased prices.
W now see the last of the Hudson
Super-Sii cars we will be able to sell at
present prices. The factory has given us
definite allotments. On at least two mod
els they, have notified ua that final ship
ments will be completed within two
" - weeks. rr' "
. .. When those cars are sold it means that
the last Hudson Super-Six to be had at
the present base price of $1,650 for the
seven-passenger phaeton has gone. Then
a new price will become effective. That
price will be based upon material costs
that are much higher than were those of
the present production.:
As a single example of the greater cost
of an automobile today as compared to
the cost of a year ago consider the item
of iron. Its low price for the years of
,1915-1917 was $12.27- a ton. Today it
' sella at $52.90 a ton. Iron is used in
. ' .'making the finest steels, the frame, the
motor,, the body, etc -Its use in a fine,
automobile constitutes a large item. .You
can get .from this some idea of the tre
mendous need for automobile price in
- Then when you think of the number of
cars that have gone up in price in the
i last few months yon get a farther xmder-
standing of the great opportunity you,
have in buying a Hudson Super-Six now.
More than fifty makers have advanced
prices within the past two months. Cars
which formerly sold at $1,200 and $1,300
now, cost about as much as a Super-Six.
There was no question as to which was
the preferred car then, though because of
the lower price many such cars were sold.
Now that there is no price advantage,
Hudson sales are at their highest. People
realise more than ever before that a Hud
son offers the greatest value on the mar
ket. They are taking advantage of the
opportunity that the present market con
dition offers. You, too, can save as they
are saving if you act promptly. We
know how many cars we are to get, but
we do not know how much longer we can,
accept orders at present prices.
Be guided by the experience of the past
as it affects the Super-Six. Buy now.
It is like buying any other staple on which
you have positive knowledge that there is
soon to be a price increase.
Surely there need be nothing said in
this connection to persuade you to a
Super-Six. It has already established its
reputation on every speedway, in every
endurance test, in the most difficult moun
tain climbs, in the most arduous road
trips, and most of all in the minds of more
than forty thousand users.

Crowder Issues Order Permit
ting Unjust Cases to Be Re
considered; Aliens Becom
ing Citizens Are Subject.
Washington, Sept. 29. A method
of relieving hardships in cases where
men who should have been 'exempted
have ben ordered to rport for mili
tary service or have entered camps,
has been prescribed by Provost Mar
shal General Crowder.
If a local or district board believes
a man has been wronkly ordered to
report for duty, it may reopen the
case on its own initiative and revoke
the former action.
If the man has already entered the
service he may be discharged only
by order of the army adjutant general,
who will act on recommendations of
local or district boards.
Another ruling provides that thous
ands of aliens who registered for the
draft June 5 and who since that date
have declared their intentions of be-,
coming citizens, are now subject to

O'Connell, a San Francisco attorney,
was sentenced to seven years in the

trict court today for conspiring to
obstruct the selective draft law.
"The fact for which you stand con

Jhe things you have done were di
rectly intended to stab your country
in the back." . .
