Goshen, Ind., Oct. 24.Six masked
men blew open the safe of the Shipsre

gagging three men in a livery Btable

amount of money was secured, as their

When least expecting that they were
at the very heels of the men suspected
of the robbery, members of the posse,
while searching a haystack, were con
fronted with the sleeping forms of two
of the cracksmen, and their capture
was easily effected. Shortly after the
remaining three members were over
taken not far from the first capture..
All five prisoners were well armed, and
the last three caught showed fight, but
were soon overpowered.
Deputy E. Kelly of Minot was the
first to see the men in the haystack,
and calling his followers crept up on
them, and commanded them to give up.
All of their rifles pointed at the dus

After these two were put under a
heavy guard, the search was continued.
When the posse came in sight of the
town of Hart, they spied the other

started to Tun. One of the robbers was
soon brought down with a shot which
struck him in the leg.

A feature of the exhaustive hunt for
the bandits and their final capture was
the use of automobiles. Tbe machines
were used by the posse. At the time

FARMERS MAY CURE MEATS
Congress Considers Means of Combat
ting the Packing House.
Topeka, Kan., Oct. 24.Plans for op
posing the packing companies and the
fruit commission dealers were discussed
at the meeting of the Farmers' Nation
al Co-operative congress last night.
Two schemes probably will be put
into execution. One is that the mem
bers of the congress will try to cure
the majority of the meat which they
use themselves, and will also cure meats
for the markets. The other plan will
be to have an agent in each county
to handle all the stock of the members
and ship to another agent at the mar
ket, who will sell direct to the packing
house. There is no intention to build
a co-operative packing-house.
Another grievance which the farmers
have is against the fruit commission
dealers, and an effort" will be made to
organize the union in fruit-growing

Paris, Oct. 24.M. Santos-Dumont
won the Deutsch-Archdeacon cup yes

his Bird of Prey, a flying machine.
The prize, amounting to $10,000, was
offered for the first aerial appliance
which, unsupported by gas, should make
a circle of- one kilometer without com

flight was free with sustained balance.
The huge contrivance, propelled by a
sixty-horsepower motor, shot four or
five meters into the air and continued
at this height until M. Santos-Dumont
cut off the power and allowed the screw
to stop. Then the horizontal move
ment was replaced by an inclined move
ment, and with a thud which smashed
the wheels and a part of the lower
frame as well as the rudder, the Bird

repairs had been effected Santos-Du

Recently the president and the state
department have been somewhat an
noyed over the actions of labor union
Sebple at San Francisco in excluding
apanese students from the public
schools, but this is purely local senti
ment and the general government is not
involved in it.
Before the fire there were two schools
in San Francisco for Japanese and Chi
nese pupils exclusively, the only schools
of that kind in the country. Those,
with many other schools, were destroyed
by the earthquake and fire, and at pres
ent thero is not enough schoolroom for
half the white children of that city,
which being the case, the policy of
reserving what room there is for white
children has been adopted.

country with the United States are

no interchange of any kind ha? been
made with Tokio regarding the United

information confirms the report that

General William H. Moody of Massa

The announced intention of the presi
dent to appoint Mr. Moody to the su

as it was generally understood that he
eliminated the attorney general from
consideration in that connection be
cause of the fact, mainly, that Massa
chusetts already has a representative

Mr. Moody's nomination will be sent

The disability consisted in the factH
that the road was not an initial grain
