were wounded.
Lured into Deadly Snare.
The police discovered some -revttfu
tionary proclamations under a bed in
one or the rooms. They went to a win
dow and pulled, aside a curtain.
There was a flash of blue flame, fol
lowed immediatelv by the explosion,
the force of which was so great that
the body of a sergeant, one th men^
was hurled over a neighboring roof. Tha
w-hole upper portion of the house fell in.
Jt is apparent-thai a snare had been^
arranged and the police lured into it.
The police received a tip to search this
house which is located in the Tartar
quarter of the city, and which "has not
been occupied Since the Armenian mas
sacres of last year.
Washington, Nov. 12.Chairman Bur
ton of the committee on rivers and har
bors of the house, has called a special
meeting of his committee for Nov. 29,
in order to get an early start in the
preparation of a bill that will carry
between $50,000,000 and $6O,Q00,OQ0.
Heretofore the river and harboT bill
has been kept back until the end of the
session and kicked frotn pillar to post.
It is intended to change this program
and report the bill early and make a
hard fight for all its provisions.
Among the most important improve
ments that will be authorized will be
those for inspecting the connecting
channels of the great lakes. A new
lock is to be built at Sault Ste Marie,
and the channel at Detroit is to
beMURDER
deepened. In all these improvements
the committee will follow the^ recom
mendations of the army engineering
corps.
The importance of t&e waterways of
the country is being recognized more
now than for many years. A river im
provement convention was held in
Washington last spring, which was
largely attended by delegates from all
parts of the country.
Bepresentative Lorimer, who is one
of the leading members of the house
committee, will make a hard fight for
the deep waterway from the lakes to
the gulf, and will have the suppoit of
the delegations from at least twenty
two states, who will be directly bene
fited by the improvement. The $t.
Louis convention will give this project
a big impetus, and as a result Mr., Lori
mer expects to bring sufficient pres
sure to bear to get an appropriation to
start the work.

ELECTION RESULTS
DROYE HIM MAD
Blue Earth County Parmer Insane
Because^ of Mcdeary's
Defeat.
Special to The Journal.
Mankato, Minn., Nov 12 Driven
insane with a fear that the results of
the recent election would bring about
the ruin of the nation, Martin N. Thors
tad, a farmer ofr^Butternut Valley town
ship, was examined before a commis
sion in the probate court yesterday af
ternoon and committed to the asylum
at St. Peter.
Few Speeches during the campaign
were more earnest and impassioned
than that delivered by Thorstad during
the progress of his examination in
court. Striking a dramatic attitude,
with rare eloquence he deplored the
election results. Later he gave further
evidence of being mentally unsound by
picturing the enthusiasm shown at a
rousing meeting on the Fourth of -July,
when he made a great speech nominat
ing James Thompson McGleary for re
election to eongress from this district.
After relating the story of his nomi
nee's defeat, he took up the McCleary
slogan of "Hammond, Hunger and
Hard Times,' and made the courtroom
ring with his prophecy that the great
eat nation of the world is going to the
dogs.''
Thorstadv is a farmer of moderate
means, living in an obscure part of
the county. He was violent at differ
ent times during-the day and was han
dled by the officers with great diffi
culty. Thorstad is 45 vears of age and
has a wife and seven children.

which the biggest syndicate now in ex
istence will be^but "a part, is in the
process of formation in Chicago. The
new combination is to include $50 of
the most important theaters in the
United States, will be represented in
every city from New York to San Fran
cisco and from Portland to New Or
leans, will dictate matters of book
lngs*, tours of all big companies, and,
in a word, be the theatrical business
of the United -States, if not of the
world.
The combine intends to control with

tumes and concerns which build scene
ry for rail plays. It intends to make
playwriters paid servants, who will
either accept the prices offered them
or else go into some other business.

in violation to the constitution. The
credentials ommitte recommended the*
seating of delegates from the protested
organization and the recommendation
was the signal for heated debate. The
contest will be carried before the exwhich
ecutive committee for final ruling. A
similar fight between the carpenters
and woodworkers, which has been on
some time, did not put in an appear
ance today.
The credentials committee recom
mended the seating of 300 delegates,
representing fourteen international and
national trades unions, twenty-one state
branches, sixty central bodies, sixteen
local trades and federated labor unions,
and six fraternal delegates. The local
bodies represented in the convention by
delegates are the State Federation Of
Labor, the Trades and Labor assembly,
and the Building Trades council of
Minneapolis, together with trades union
organizations of St. Paul and Duluth.

FAST BEING SOLVED
Governor Heyward Sees Hope in
Efforts to Settle B| ce I
Qttestionr%3^*
Nashville, Nov. 12.The second an
nual session of the southern immigra
tion and quarantine conference was
called to order today at the capitol.
The conference Vas organized a year 1
ago at phaftano^a," and its efforts re
suited indirectly in the enactment of
better quarantine regulations by the
federal government.
This year the immigration question
will be considered. The real purpose
of the conference is to bring about a
more equitable distribution of the im
taigrants Who reach the United States
from foreign shores. Various plans are
suggested for ridding the south of its
Worthless negroes, and the race ques
tion, therefore, was early injected into
the discussion.
May Solve Bace Problem.
Governor Heyward said the coming
of immigrants to the south is bearing
Upon the practical and direct solution
of the race problem. There had been
too much theorizing, it was time for
action. He said:
"Without a precedent in the history
of the world to be guided by, nearly
always misunderstood that misjudged,
the people of the south have for more
a&2!JBBT,?%.7S
between two rdces living upon the same
soil. These, races differ widely in in
telligence and moral responsibility, one
being distinstly inferior to the other.
Only till a few years ago the inferior
race was in servitude to the superior
race, and, with no preparation what
ever, was given equal civil and polit
ical rights under the constitution.
Sees Hope in Progress.
*'Unler such adverse cirucmstances
no other people upon this earth, could
have succeeded as well as the Southern
people have- done in meeting existing
conditions, and this fact alone should
not only give us courage and hope for
the future, but should entitle ns to the
trust and confidence of the world*
"Sectional feeling fortunately is
passing away and our people under
stand each other better. Problems
were at one time peculiarly
southern are becoming national. We
Americans are more and more mutually
carrying 'the white man's burden.' We
have been seeking for some time to
make some change in -our political and
economic systems which will affect the
negro alone and which will, at the same
time, aid in solving our problems.
I do not think that conditions
which are the result of years can be
changed in a day by the adoption of
any rule or the enactment of any spe
cial legislation. To solve the race ques
tion will require not only time, but
patience and judgment on the part of
the whtie men and upon the part of the
negro, it will call for the -exercise of
more common sense and afar greater
appreciation of his moral responsibil-
Deportation Unsafe.
Governor Hayward then "enumerated
the solutions of the problems which had
been suggested and tried from time to
time, and all of which had failed.
In speaking of the plan to deport
negroes, Goyernor Hayward said the de-
portatidFn^obld.^not be attempted un
less it became a national and not a
southern movement. Such a move
ment, he saids? would not be attempted
until the negro problem is better un-.
derstood and more acute at the north
than it is now,
"In the course of time," he con
tinued, the negro, who is now rapidly
increasing in certain cities"of the nortn,
may, by his failure to meet the expecta
tions of the people of the north and his
own consequent responsibility, become
such a hindrance and menace that our
northern friends will be Teady to do
something more than simply give advice
to the south."

Washington, Nov. 12.Committees
representing the American Bankers' as
sociation and the New York Chamber
of Commerce met in this city today to
endeavor to frame a measure for the
consideration of congress, looking to
issue emergency circulation'i- case of
finacnial stringency.
The plan outlined by the American
bankers'at their convention in St. Louis
arid that subsequently presented by the
legislature committee of the New York
Chamber of Commerce are not greatly
different in character, and it is believed
that they can be harmonized to an ex
tent that a powerful recommendation
for remedial banking legislation can be
made to congress at the approaching
session.
These plans provide in a general way
for the appointment by the president
with the approval of the senate, of a
commission of seven members of which
the controller of the currency shall be
one. This commission would have the
same control over tho banking laws as
is exercised by the interstate commerce
commission over the transportation
laws. It would be nonpartizan, two of
the members being appointed for four
years, two for eight, and two for twelve
years, and after that all members for
twelve years, but without being per
mitted to succeed themselves.
The commission would be charged
with the duty of considering all appli
cations of banks for emergency circu
lation and would decide the necessity,
the per centagee of circulation compared
with* nection with such circulation.

IT'S THE FOOD
The True Way to Correct Nervouf
Troubles.
Nervous troubles are more often
eaused by improper food and indiges*
tion than most people imagine. Even
doctors sometimes overlook this fact. A
man says:
"Until two years ago waffles and
butter with meat and gravy were the
main features of my breakfast. Final
ly dyspepsia came on and I found my
self in a bad condition, worse in the
morning than any other time. I would
have a full, sick feeling in my stomach,
with pains in my heart, sides and
head.
"At times I would have no appetite
for* days, then I would feel ravenous,
never satisfied when I did eat and so
nervous I felt like shrieking at the top
of my voice. I lost flesh badly and
hardly knew which way to turn until
one day I bought a box of Grape-Nuts
food to see if I could eat that. I tried
it without telling tne doctor, and liked
it fine made me feel as if I had some
thing to eat that was satisfying and
still I didn't have that heaviness that
I had felt after eating any other food.
I hadnt drank any coffee then in
five weeks. I kept on with the Grape
Nuts and in a month and a half I had
gained 15 pounds, could eat almost any
thing I wanted, aidn 't' feel badly after
eating and my nervousness was alt
gone. It's a pleasure to be well again."
