dorsed for Constitutional
Convention - Named
Lincoln, Sept 17. (Special.)
Five of the six men endorsed by
the Nonpartisan league us candi
date for the constitutional conven
tion were nominated at the primary
election Tuesday, out of a field of
25. The fact that the opposition
split its strength among 19 can
didates snd the lightest vote ever
cast in an election in this county
gave the Townley slate a big ad
vantage. I State Senator C. Tetrus Peterson,
one of the 19 independent candi
dates, was high man on the ticket,
while C. C. Flansburg. endorsed by
the league, was second.
In the county precincts outside
of Lincoln, league strongholds cast
a solid block of votes for the slate
of six. The league candidate who
failed to land was B. F. Parmenter
of Bethany, a member of the or
ganization. These were the nominees:
C. Petrus Petrson.
C C. Fnalsburg.
John M. Stwart.
Walter L. Anderson.

Teutons to Swallow Bitter Pill
Prescribed In Allied
(Staff Corrnpondi'nt fnlvenuil Service.)
Special Cable Dlnpatch,
Berlin, Sept. 17. Germany will
comply with the demand of the al
lied supreme council to declare nyll
and void the objectionable para
graph in the German constitution
looking to Austria's union with
Germany and providing for Aus
trian representation in the German
Reichstrat, or Council of the Realm,
which may be compared to our sen
ate. Though it is maintained that the
allied demand does violence to the
self-determination of peoples which
is one of the fundamental principles
in President Wilson's 14 points, and
the foreign relations committee is
deliberating today with the govern
ment as to the action to be taken
in reply to the allied note, it can be
said that the German government
considers itself helpless to oppose
the allied demand.
Several members of the cabinet
are for letting the allies carry out
the threat to occupy Frankfort-on-the-Main
in the event of Germany's
refusal, but the majority appears to
be for sending delegates to Paris
empowered in the name of the gov
ernment to make a protocol com
plying with the supreme council's
"It's a bitter pill, but we are help
less and must swallow it," remarked
one of the leading ministers of the
cabinet. "The foreign relations
committee undoubtedly will come to
the same conclusion today."

Woman in Road
Salt -Lake, Sept. 17. Mrs., John
Green 23, was murdered late last
night on the Lincoln highway, one
mile east of Tooele and her body
left on the road by her assailants.

shoes in the center of the road and
a few yards farther at a side of the
highway came across the lacerated
and bruised body. Mrs. Green had
gone to the outskirts of the town
in a buggy while her husband had
gone to one of the smelters in
search of work.
Mr. Green had given his wife
some money before he left her and
when she was found her purse was
empty. Her horse and buggy have
not been found.
