A YEAR "GOING BEGGING"
New York, Feb. 15. Despite the

This condition, Mr. Winslow said,
is especially acute in the export field

Rescuers Reach Them Near
Hoskins and Phillips; Red
Cross Gives Aid
Four passenger trains, caught in
the midwest in the fierce blizzard
Thursday, were delayed from two
to four days in deep snowdrifts in
the storm zone.
Food for the passengers was rush
ed to the trains on special cars and
snowshoes from nearby towns.
After spending three days iri snow
covered coaches two and one-half
miles north of Hoskins, Neb., on the
Norfolk branch of the Minneapolis
and Omaha line, nearly 50 passen
gers emerged from a 16-foot drift at
5:45 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
The train proceeded to Sioux City,
and carried many Omaha people.
When the railroad officials heard
of the delay of the passenger train
in the blizzard since Thursday after
noon, they sent a special string of
coaches filled with food to the suf
fering passengers. .
Firemen on the train shoveled
snowinto the boilers to keep up
steam, and the engineer sent word
to Hoskins for fuel. A rescue train
left Norfolk at 2 a. m. Friday, fol
lowing a snow plow, but was stalled
in 12-foot drifts two miles west of
the delayed passenger train.
Another rescue train, sent out
from Sioux City, was stalled four
miles east of the snow-covered
Rescue Train at Phillips.
Passengers on a local train on the
Aurora branch of the Burlington,
stalled for three days in a snow drift
near Phillips, Neb., were relieved at
6 o'clock last night, when rotary
snow plows cut an opening. The
train reached Grand Island last
nieht. Traffic on the main line of the

night. Trains are stalled along the

Denver, Colo., Feb. 15. Passen
gers on Union Pacific train No. 119,
which arrived in Denver this after
noon 48 hours late, after spending
two days behind a snow bank at
Russell, Kan., brought with them a
tribute to the Russell chapter of the
American Red Cross, which, for two
days, brought them food and com
forts. The Kansas women did every
thing possible, the passenger said,
for their comfort during the time
they were forced to wait for work
men to clear the tracks.
The Union Pacific Kansas City
train was the first to arrive in Den
ver from the 'east since Wednesday
night, when the storm began, which
tied up rail and wire transportation
throughout Kansas and Nebraska.
Conditions were rapidly nearing nor

on a Union Pacific train, which was
caught in the storm Wednesday
west of Salina, had nothing tp eat
but eggs taken from an express car
and went without sleep for more
than 48 hours, according to stories
of passengers who arrived here to
day. L. F. Dennis of Salina told
how the men on the train, including
a wounded soldir, wrapped clothes
about their heads and after tying
themselves together plowed and
crawled through snowdrifts over

rocked by the gale until those within
feared it would-be blown fiorn the

deep, he said, are no longer a marvel
in the storm-swept area.
This nain was the fi-st on the

snow plows yreceded it into Salina.

Confessed Slayer of Rival
Takes Steps to Make Battle
For Her Life and Freedom
Mrs. Hofland, O'Neill, Neb., Claims She Was Justified
in Choking Wife of Man She Had Lived With
in Commonlaw Marriage for
West Plains, Mo., Feb. 15. Mrs. Carrie Hofland, a Ne
braska woman, who confessed to the killing of Mrs. Pearl
Welton, wife of Frank Welton, on the Welton farm near
Mountain View by choking her to death, is now taking a
keen interest in preparations for trial at the May term of the
Shannon county circuit court at Eminence.
When she confessed the murder, she expressed a desire
to plead guilty at once, but since her removal to the Howell
county jail at West Plains she, has gone over the circumstance
of the killing with her attorneys with a view of making a de
termined effort at justification when she is placed on trial.
No hint has been given as to the nature of the defense the
woman will make.
A friend of Mrs. Hofland residing
in Newland county, Nev., where the
prisoner formerly lived, sent her
this telegram a few days ago:
"How on earth did you come to
do it? You were always so soft
hearted. Why, you couldn't even
kill a chicken."
Met at Sioux City.
Mrs. Hofland is a Norwegian. In
1905 she lived at Sioux City, la.,
where she met Frank Welton. a rail
road man. She says they entered
into a. common law marriage and
lived together for 12 years as man
and wife. He had homesteaded a
ranch near O'Neill, Neb., where
they moved in 1906. From that time
until he left her in the spring of
1917, the couple lived as man and
Mrs. Hofland's daughter, now 7,
lived with the couple all this time
and thought Welton to be her step
father. Mrs. Hofland says an estate
of $5,000 inherited from her mother

New Laws Proposed- Would
Produce Super-Race of
Men and Women in
By JOHN H. KEARNES,
Lincoln, Neb., Feb. 15. Nebraska
today has the proud distinction of
having the smallest penal popula
tion of any state in the union, yet
it has embarked on a program of
legislation which will open up an
absolutely new realm of crime, not
crime de facto, but crime de jure,
and in anticipation of convictions
under the new laws will create two
new penal institutions which will
have to be filled.
According to the latest statistics
Nebraska has a population of 1,
200,000 and of this great number
only 593 are in penal institutions.
To be exact, there are 281 inmates
of the penitentiary, 208 in the Kear
ney Industrial School for Boys and
104 in the Girls' Industrial school
These delinquents were gathered
into these institutions by the opera
tion of old-fashioned laws against
There are bills ,in the Nebraska
legislature which relate to the new
realm of crime and which are the
couriers of a new penal science
with two well-defined branches to
which have been given the names of
mental hygiene and sex hygiene.
Violation of Health Laws.
Laws dealing with the two
branches are co-relative and are
grouped so, that they deal with the
physical and mental violation of
certain health laws and are to be
administered by health boards, wel
fare boards and the old-time ma
chinery of the courts under theJ
police power ot the state.
Most of the proposed laws trace
to one source, the health department
of the federal government, and

was spent in improving the ranch.
When Welton left O'Neill in the
spring of 1917 he told Mrs. Welton
that he was going to South
Missouri and look at some land.
They had sold their live stock and
other personal property on the
ranch. Welton went to Kentucky
where he married and then took his
wife to the farm in Shannon county,
a few miles from Mountain View
where she was killed.
Welton Wrote Often.
During his absence, Mrs. Hof
land says, she often heard from
Welton, but he never mentioned his
marriage , to another woman. She
made up her mind to visit Welton
and reached Mountain View the day
before the murder. Walking out to
the Welton home, five miles from
Mountain View, she found both

country in the interest of the league
Commenting on the text of the
articles agreed to at the peace con
ference for a society of nations,
former President Taft said;
"It is a real league of nations.
It is not all that I wished, but comes
near. It is a great deal better than
I hoped. It contains within its
terms provisions for its own growth.
Indeed, the exigencies of the Euro
pean situation in the sphere of the
league will probably require addi

in some respects than appear in the
present plan, but on the whole I am
quite gratified over the unanimous
agreement on the subject."

A marriage license was issued yes

Alice Navicky, both of the South
Side and well known m Lithuanian
circles. The - nuptials will be ob
served Wednesday in St. Anthonys
Lithuanian Catholic church, Thirty

Courted Her for Five Years,
Mr. Palinsky has been keeping
company with Miss Navicky for five
years, meanwhile working in one
of the packing houses and saving his
money .for the time when he would
settle down.' He took things for
granted, but did not reckon with the
factor of the psychology of a wo
man's mind. Miss Navicky wanted
him to declare his intentions, but. he
did not do 'so until something hap
pened. The event which caused the
awakening of Palinsky was. the an
nouncement last week '.that . Miss
Navicky was to be married "to Ed
ward Akrom, a widower, who had
known the young woman for years,
but who began to make love to her
only a few weeks ago. Akrom was
such a Lochinvar that he took Miss
Navicky completely off her feet.
The license for- the Akrom-Na-vicky
marriage was obtained and the
time had been set for last Thiirs
ray, the 13th. According ttd the
Lithuanian custom. Akrom had ar
ranged for a wedding feast of fried
chicken and other desirable eatables.
Guests had been invited and other
details arranged, but
When Akrom called for his pros
pective bride ' he was informed by
her and relatives that ' she had
changed her mind about marrying
him. The reason for her Change of
mind was due to the fact that Palin
sky, the lover of long standing, had
heard of the affair and had dashed
wildly to Miss Navicky's home,
where,' on bended knees he offered
her his hand and heart. She prompt
ly accepted Palinsky and. annulled
her promise to Akrom. ' '

obstacles and wins in the end. Love
is, wonderful. It is a flame in the

Akrom claimed the girl by right
