TO STOP HOME
Contends That the Strict Ob'
1 servance of Provisions Are
Prerequisites of the
City Attorney Weaver figuratively
threw up his hands when he ap
peared in Judge Troup's court to de
fend an action brought by J. P.
Breen, in the name of Marion O.
Cunningham, to stop the submission
of the proposed new home rule char
ter to the voters on November 5.
In his argument Breen contended
that strict observance of constitu
tional provisions are prerequisites to
the validity of the charter. He in
sisted that not less than 30 days
must intervene between the date of
the last official publication of the
charter and the date of the election.
In this instance he maintained that
only 23 days would elapse, and he
further argued that the charter com
mittee did not file 25 copies of the
charter with the city clerk at the
time the official copy was filed.
Attorney Weaver admitted to the
court that probably the charter
committee overlooked the manda
tory features of some of these
provisions and he announced that
the city would like to have a ruling
from the court for further guidance.
County Attorney Magney appear
ed for Election Commissioner Moor
head, but made no argument.
Judge Troup will announce his
decision on Thursday morning.

Much of the difficulty expe
rienced by health authorities in
checking the spread of the Spanish
influenza lies in the fact that it
strikes its victim without warning.
t Although State and Federal
authorties are taking every possi
ble precaution in their effort to stop
the spread of the epidemic, the dis
ease in many sections of the coun
try has gotten entirely beyond con
trol and is claiming its victims by
It is universally agreed by all
well informed persons that the
surest preventative is to get the
system in the best possible physi
cal condition in order to be able to
. throw off the infection. As has been
previously stated it is possible to
perfect the powers of resistance of
the human system so that it can
throw off almost any infection, not
excepting Spanish Influenza, which
is one of the most contagious dis
I Medical authorities agree that
people who are weak and run-down
are the earliest victims of the In
fluenza epidemic. If you find your
self weak or losing flesh, or if you
are in a generally run-down condi
tion, you are really in great danger
if you should come in contact with
the Influenza germ.
As a powerful reconstructive
tonic and system builder, Tanlac is
without equal. This is a statement
of facts and is fully supported by
recognized authorities. According
to all accepted reference works, in
cluding the United States Dispensa
tory, Encyclopedia Britannica and
lonHinc t.vt hooka used in the
school of medicine, the principal in
gredients of Tanlac possess me
uht valuable tonic properties
fc known to science. This statement is
further proven by the fact that
millions of persons who have actual
ly taken Tanlac have testified to its
extraordinary merit as a medicine.
Tanlac restores health and
strength to the weak and run-down
system by enabling every organ of
the body to perform its proper
function in nature's own way. -It

FLU RUMORS ARE
SAY ARMY MEN
Stories of Death and Shooting
of Doctors and Nurses for
Spreading Germs Are
False reports about the influenza
epidemic at Camp Dodge, Ia., are
current in Omaha, the story that
doctors and nurses were ' shot at
sunrise for spreading "flu" germs is
heard on every street corner.
Authorities at Camp Dodge have
denied the reports, which they de
clare are "wild and woozy lies."
Dame Rumor has not been so
active in Omaha but it is, certain
that the conditions at Fort Omaha
have been exaggerated and authori
ties wish to impress the fact tlrtt
sensational stories please the Huns
and bring needless heartaches to
relatives of the soldiers.
The following article from the
Camp Dodger nails some of the lies
which have been circulated about
"The old hag dubbed Dame
Rumor has sure been on the job in
Des Moines lately. In a few days
she's spread a flock of the wildest,
wooziest and most ridiculous false
reports imaginable. They've all had
to do with conditions at Camp
Dodge, and if they hadn't created
such havoc with the civilian morale,
they'd be fodder for a gigantic laugh.
Witness these samples:
"Five Camp Dodge doctors
and twice as many nurses shot
at sunrise for helping spread
flu germs 1

large rave back of the base

every day at the base hospital!

all right. And the worst of it is the
gullible public has fallen for 'em
taken 'em hook, line and sinker. The
menace of these absurd stories be
came so ridiculous a few days ago
that Col. E. W. Rich, division sur
geon, had them officially denieid in
the daily papers.
"The character of the lies smack
very much of Hun propaganda. But
it's not impossible that jesting sol
diers have played into the enemy's
hand by telling friends exaggerated
stories of aff.irs inside the quar
antined cantonment. And the
'friends' have done the rest, the re
sult being heartaches for hundreds
of soldiers' parents and a wave of
panicky sensationalism throughout
"Putting it plainly, it's up to us at
Dodge to keep our mouths tiJitly
shut concerning anything pertaining
to cantonment affa;-s. If there is
ever a repetition of ;e late rumor

$2.85 for a trip from Omaha to

"pocketing" the difference.

ran into a German patrol of 25 men,
and all we had were our pistols and
some grenades, and we shot them
up a bunch. We killed five, wound

here that he began the work of gath

data for ten years and fired at least
50,000 rounds with all types of rifles
in experimental tests. Much of tl
work of writing the manuscript was
done, under grea pressure and at

from other duties. The book was
begun in Panama, some of it was
written in the jungle, other portions

Leader in Austria, is Made
President of the New
Basel, Switzerland, Oct. 23. The
German-Austrian deputies in the
Austrian Reichrath have formed an
assembly for the purpose of con
ducting the affairs of the Germanic
people in Austria and have issued a
declaration announcing the creation
of a "German state of Austria."
Karl Seitz, leader of the German
socialists in Austria, has been elect
ed president of the new assembly.
The deputies have announced their
desire to bring about the autonomy
of the Germans in Austria and to es
tablish relations with other nations.
The assembly has drawn up a res
olution respecting the form of gov
ernment of the territory occupied by
Germans. The "German state of
Austria," will seek access to the Ad
riatic sea. in agreement with other
nations. Pending the establishment
of a constitution according to this
program the people will be repre
sented by the Reichsrath deputies

assembly. This body will represent
this body in Austria in negotiations
for peace and will exercise legisla
tive powers. The legislative branch
will consist of 20 members who will
have power to contract state debts
and administer interior affairs.

German people in Austria fearing
that Austro-Hungary might draw
away from Germany were desirous
of insuring their own close unity
with the German empire.
