The liquor issue figured in many

change from the present complexion
of the house on this question was

Mrs. May Coseboom Says
Former Omaha Man
Tore Her Clothe.
Los Angeles, Aug. 6. (Special
Telegram.) Mere chance brought
about the first meeting between Mrs.
May Coseboom and George F. Reim,
president of the Reim, Thompson
company, according to her testimony
in Justice Hanby's court, where Reim
was given a hearing on a charge of
attempting to commit a statutory of
fense against her.
Mr. Reim was for 11 years agent
in Omaha for a large automobile
Mrs. Coseboom testified that she
was hurrying to work one morning
when Reim stopped his car and of
fered to give her a lift. During the
ride he gave her his name and she
handed him a pay envelope with her
name on it, adding her telephone
number, she said. Subsequently he
took her out to lunch several times,
but, she said, in company with a girl
friend. Twice he drove her to her
home in Long Beach, once meeting
and talking with her husband.
On Tune 28, she said, he offered to
drive her to Long Beach, but near
.pLynwood turned the car off the high-
way, saying he had to make a de
tour. The witness then said she had
a struggle with the defendant, during
which she tore off the draperies in
his car. She managed to get away,
she said, after he had slapped her
face, and ran screaming down the
Lroad to where she saw Cecil R.
Clark working on a tractor in a field.
She asked Mr. Clark's protection, she
Mr. Clark testified to meeting the
young woman and escorting her
against Mr Reim's wishes, to the
home of Mrs Katherine L. Shaw,
who cared for Mrs. Coseboom. Mrs.
Shaw said the young woman's face,
neck and chest were bruised and that
her garments were torn.
The case is being" prosecuted by
Deputy District Attorney Hill and
H. L. Geisler and Claire Woolwine
appeared for the defense.
A continuance was taken until Au
gust 17, when the defendant's case
will be presented.

Chicago, Aug. 6. Plans for the
republican campaign in Maine, where
the general elections are to be held

publican national headquarters.
Four speakers from the western

Washington. Aug. 6. Representa

43 navy yards appeared before the

Styers Says It Completely Re
stored His Health and j6
Has Gained 22 Pounds.
"Yes, sir, I believe as firmly as
I believe anything that Tanlac saved
my life two years ago," was the
statement made a few days ago by
Abraham L. Styers, well-known
brick mason and contractor, living
at 4326 Patrick avenue. Omaha.
"And besides setting me right at
that time Tanlac put me into shape
where I gained 22 pounds in weight
in just a few weeks and I have been
feeling fine from that day to this,
I had been in the worst sort of
health "for five years and was told
I could never get well. I was suf
fering from rheumatism and lum
bago. My back ached continually,
sometimes so bad I could not stand
to bend over at all and my kidneys
bothered me a great deal. Why, a
lot of times when I sat down in a
chair I had to be helped up. I was
badly constipated and suffered a
great deal from biliousness and
dizzy spells. I lost my appetite
and quite often turned awful sick
at my stomach. . 1 couldn't sleep to
do any good and I ate so little that
I went down m weight until 1 was
beginning to think my time was just
about up.
"But a friend of mine out me onto
Tanlac and it was the best thing I
eveKdid when I started, taking it I
had no more than finished my sec
ond bottle before I felr like a dif
ferent man and I kept on taking it
until all my troubles disappeared.
My appetite came back and I was
soon eating like a bear and picking
up in weight and strength right
along. In a short time I gained 22
pounds, as I said, and was feeling
as well as I ever did in my life. I
am 69 years old and I'm in as good
health as any man of my age. Tan
lac was a life-saver to me and I'm
going to keep it in the house as long
as I live."

Prominent Leaders of Party
Confer With Candidate
Preparatory to Announc
ing Campaign Plans
Dayton, O., Aug. 6. Democratic
clans were gathering here today for
their great quadrennial , event, the
presentation tomorrow to the Amer
ican electorate of a presidential nom
inee Governor Cox of Ohio. All
was in readiness for the governor's
formal notification of nomination, by
Senator Robinson of Arkansas, who
presided over the San Francisco
convention, and the candidate's ad
dress' of acceptance declaring the
broad lines of the campaign.
Governor Cox hoped, during the
presence of leaders here for the
notification ceremonies, to settle
campaign organization affairs, dis
pose of state and personal business
and be ready, after his address to
morrow, for unlimited campaigning
until election day.
Leaders Arrive Early.
Among important early arrivals
due were George White, chairman
of the democratic national commit
tee, and Senator Harrison of Mis
sissippi, head of the speakers' bu
reau. They were expected to an
nounce, respectively, the special
campaign committee and the gov
ernor's first speech-making itinerary
after approval by the candidate.
With Governor Cox's acceptance
address in type for tomorrow after
noon's newspapers, speculation in
creased today regarding the brief
but important insert he has an
nounced would be forthcoming to
morrow. The governor continued
to hold it a secret. Speculation on
its message centered principally on
three subjects, a possible challenge
to Senator Harding, his republican
opponent, for joint debate of the
league of nations, a specific state
ment on Article X of the league
covenant, or a definite announce
ment regarding the prohibition issue.
Democratic leaders here seemed
agreed that the league undoubtedly
would be the great campaign battle
ground and awaited with keen inter
est the address of Governor Cox
which, he has announced, will be so
plain that school children may un
derstand. His promises for an ag
gressive and 1 offensive xampaign
carried personally to the people
from coast to coast also apparently
found unanimous favor.
Besides the interests of himself
and Franklin D. Roosevelt, the vice
presidential candidate, Governor
Cox is planning to carry with the
national ticket a democratic congress-.
On the league issue, close
advisers say he feels that it wili be
settled definitely in the November
balloting for president and sen
ators. '

Series of Robberies, WreckjTtnd
Gun Battles Keep Chicago
Officers Busy
Chicago Tribune-Omaha Bee leaned Wire,
Chicago, Aug. 6. This was a field
day for automobile and ordinary
bandits, with fierce battles staged
between them and the police in vari
ous sections of the city. There were
three running gun fight? and four
bandits' were captured, two of them
with serious bullet wounds. Four
others escaped. Of those who got
away, two carried bullets as sou
venirs of the engagement.
Traveling at terrific speed, a
stolen automobile, carrying four ban
dits, roared down Racine avenue and
collided with another machine at
noon, spilling passengers and parts
of the machine all over the street.
Five minutes hter three of the ban
dits had stolen another machine, kid
naped the driver and were speeding
south, leaving two demolished cars,
several injured persons, a gaping
crowd and a wondering police force
in their wake. Evidently the bandits
were escaping from some crime, al
though no reports of it have yet
come in.
The fourth bandit vanished up an
alley, leaving his hat and revolver
in his haste.
Police and a carload of bandits
fought a running battle on South
Side streets, wounding one so badly
he may die, and winging another,
who escaped. A few moments later
the same squad of policemen en
countered three automobile bandits
and captured two of them. The
third, who was wounded, escaped.
In the third battle the officers
wounded one and captured a second
of three burglars whom they sur
prised at work In still another case
the driver of a stolen car loaded
with bandits lost control in his haste
to get away, and the car struck the
curb and smashed its way through
a large window. The bandits leaped
out and escaped by the back door,
shooting .it everybody in sight as
they disappeared in a maze of alley
ways. By an Englishman's invention it
has become possible to make imi
tation real lace up to 100 inches in
width by machinery.

Small Factories Hardest Hit
Garages Attract Men From
Other Jobs Work But
Few Days.
Chicago Tribune-Omaha Bee Leased Wire.
Valley City, N. D.. Aug. 6. The
small cities in the granger states are
far harder pinched for skilled and
semiskilled labor than are the farm
ers for field hands and monthly hired
help. Of harvest labor there is a
glut and in South Dakota the farm
er who is starting to cut his wheat
has no trouble' in getting men at 50
cents an hour for 10 hours a day, but
in the cities to pick up a stray artisan
looking for work is like finding a
gold nugget.
The garages are the one exceptional
ihey have plenty ot men. JNumoers
of them, too, get in only two to four
days work a week, but at high wages
they seem to be content. The fas
cination of climbing into overalls
and puttering around the machinery
and then climbing into the old boat
and stepping on it. still holds them.
At almost every garage one sees
them sprawling in chairs waiting
a chance to do $14 worth of damage
to the passing tourist's chariot under
tne guise of repairs.
Small Shops Hit Hardest.
But the little factories and the es
tablishments that require artisans
are short df help. Small foundries
and machine shops are clamoring
for men. Country printing shopa
are short. In many a small com
munity the editor of a country week
ly is sticking his own type and kick
ing the old job press with' his strong
right leg. "I haven't seen an old
fashioned journeyman typeslinger in
a pink moon," lamented an editor at
"Some of our star reporters, col
lege boys, are quitting positions at
$30 and $35 a week to take jobs in
garages'," said the editor of a flour
ishing Sioux Falls daily. The au
tomobile industry sure has thrown
things topsy turvy."
"We've got plenty of laborers and
enough hammer and saw men, but
we can't get enough real skilled car
penters," has been a common report
from building contractors. In Aber
deen this morning a contractor spoke
of a gang he rounded up last week
for a job in Utah. "Forty of them
claimed to be skilled workers and
demanded artisan's wages," he said,
"but of the forty, only two were
actual mechanics. Every wheel bar
row pusher these days claims to be
