Considered Prosperity Indication.
. This is taken by the election man
ager not only as an indication of the
prosperity of Omaha and the sur
rounding territory, but also as ' a
tribute to the contestants, and. the
agencies which aided" them. ' It 'was
considered lt theGrt remarlcaWe

than did the other papers' w hich won
far less results.' i-
By virtue of her splendid showing
Miss Donn probably has . won the
honor of being named the official
head of the national delegation which
will sail for France July 22. - It was
the unselfish efforts of , contest
leaders which aided other candi
dates to win trips. Until the con
test terminated yesterday afternoon
the-. race between- Miss Donn and
Miss O'Brien was sufficiently close

gathering at the bank before 2 oclock,

interchange of conversation between
candidates, and signs of good feeling
o;i all sides. v ' - .. ' ,..'
Example of Good WilL
A feature of the campaign was the
v.oi-1; of Miss Rice of Alliance, her

employe, and in a spirit of self-sacri-v

Tariff Law Will
President' Predicts Shortage
of Common Labor in 90
Days and Return to
, "Normalcy." ;
By GEORGE F. AUTHIER.
Washington Corrcsnoadtitt Omaha Met.
Washington, May 19. (Special
Telegram.) President Harding, ac
cording to statements . made at the
White House today, seei a return ot
DrosDeritv and' believes that, within
VU day? there will- be a snortage or
common labor" in the United States.
This is the first time the president
has so definitely tommitted himself
toc-the jdea-of life turning of the tide
in industrial affairs. ,V " -,. - -
The president finds all reports fav
oring the idea that prosperity is just
around the corner and thinks it can
be frightened away only by a lood
of imports. The inference is clear, he
helieves 'the tariff law should be re
lied upon to prevent this. -. ,
The reports which the president
has shown as a return to "normalcy"
jn the farming industry, ' with ; the
exception of the livestock branch,
which is still suffering depression.
The grain industry, off the contrary,
is regarded as having turned the cor
ner. .. ' ' .
The depression in the livestock in
dustry is regarded as. due in part to
excessive freight charges, and the
president is seeking to remedy this
situation by the conference which he
will, hold Saturday .night, with rail
way. - executives. - The president is
committed ' to. the idea of . lower
freight rales and is determined they
shall be brought about if possible.
-' The president' believes differences
between capital and labor,, as well as
misdirected corporation opposition
to necessary changes, can be brought
about by conference. . It is with this
object- in view that he consulted the
steel men last night with the view
of having the 12-hour day eliminated
and will consult the railroad execu
tives Saturday night with the view of
lowermg freight rates.

-" Dalton's case attracted nation-wide
attention, not only because of his
youth 17 and the amount taken, but
because of a similar case a short time

bank officials were partly to blame
for robberies by bank clerks because
they surrounded them with millions
of dollars and paid them small sal
aries." Dalton was erroneously quoted
as saying Judge Landis' statements

might withdraw. He said:
"It is evident that this rumor
emanated from those who would like

that reasonable economy in govern

Announcement That He '

By GEORGE P. AUTHIER.
(Washlnctoti Caorcpsondeat, Omaha, Be.)
Washington, May 19. (Special
Telegram.) . Representative Moses
P. Kinkaid of the sixth Nebraska
district, today reconsidered the de
cision, announced by him yesterday,
to retire . from congressional serv
ice at the close of his present term.
Announcement of Representative
Kinkaid s decision was contained in
the following brief statement:
On the advices of friends, -from
our aixtn aisinci ana in ine siaic
and physicians here, I have recon
sidcred my decision reached and an
nounced in the newspapers to with
draw and shall continue as a can
didate in -the primary elections."
The announcement of Representa
tive Kinkaid a decision to retire
brought a flood of telegrams from
his old friends in the district and
throughout Nebraska. . These friends
informed Representative Kinkaid
they would undertake to bear the
burden of his primary and election
campaign and urged him to continue
in the service of the district.
Manl' of his friends in the house
joined in urging him to reconsider
the decision made . yesterday.
Under the circumstances,.. .Repre
sentative Kinkaid reached ' the con
clusion that he might take things
more easily in the future and his
physicians admitted that a moderate
continuation of his activities might
prove less dangerous than a sudden
iteration in nis manner oi living.

Canning company factory at Nau

Always in the manufacture of1 these
rings, of which he also is the inven

not be eradicated. '.The solution is
to take two of the prisntatic rings,
one with a plus error and the other
with an equal minus error, to give
the zero of perfection necessary to
accomplish the results which he an
nounced today. i
Besides the prismatic rings, which
furnish the real secret of the 'new

there is a light detecting box which
takes the picture through a lens
in front of the prismatic rings and
as the light rays pass through, it
sends them out through the air just

Hiding in Haunts
of Jesse James
Men Who Took $2500 From
Messenger at Springfield
Monday Cornered in
. . Hills of Miller County.
By The Associated Press.
' Springfield, Mo., May 19.
Hiding by day and traveling by
night, pursued by Ozark woodsmen,
militiamen and peace officers, three
of the five bandits who Monday
took $20,500 from a bank messenger
her, have been making r their way
north all week, a ' posse on their
heels. Today Sheriff J. Harris of
Cireene county reported that - the
three" men are believed to be near
Bagnell in Miller county, 75 miles
northeast of here. They were seen
at dawn, the sheriff said.
But the bandits saw their pursuers
almost as quickly as they were seen
and were back among the hills along,
the Osage river jvhere Jesse James
and his companions were wont to
take refuge when pursuit, grew too
hot . High hills, thick woods and
brush shut off pursuit and furnish
cover." Tonight the sheriff believes
the three men will again make an ef
fort to reach the railroad.:
They. did that last night but
the possemen were there ahead of
them and the bandits turned back,
waiting another ' chance to slip
through the lines.'. .
Time and again the bandit? have
been reported surrounded and have
slipped away. More than once they
have been reported clear of pursuit.
but the untiring posse has picked up
the trail again.
Two bandits, believed to have gone
west from here, are admitted to have
escaped. ' ' ' .
