u Steam roller hasn't appeared in the

structed delegate, whoso to -speak. Is
having sdmo difficulty iii locating
tho band wagon.
There are several elements which
contribute "to the support of predic
tions that It in going to be a regular
old time convention. Four years agp
on pro-convention Saturday everything
looked pretty tame. Charles S. Hushes
was as good as nominated although
It was a dozen whirling eddies each
loaded with possibilities of developing
Into fictitious proportions.
Many steadying influences which
guided the preliminaries of four year
ago are abeont now and a good many
new elements which make for confu
sion are present. In the first place
the majority of the delegates are un
Instructed, and although aB is gencr-,
ally the case, a majority of them arc
anxious to board some band wagon,
there does not appear to be arty. Thero
m are several vehicles ready to be rolled
I VI out but tho horsepower doesn't seem
rt to be mobilized as vet and everybody
seems to look to the possibilities that
some of the horses may be dark.

they are being invited in half a dozen
inj Bosses arc Absent
T Then there is the absence of the
tee steadying influence, of the old time
wal leaders who have hitherto been able
life to guide the destinies or the conven
or tion, The bosses who speak with a
banj noto of authority seem to be absent
Mj and although the Incoming delegates
a'ho are willing to be )od they don't find
ferei any considerable party being person-
cordl ally conducted In any one direction. i
El About the only thing thnt everybody;
olle seems to be agreed upon is that no,

jfMf the first ballot and from the Informa-
jH tion that leaks out from the various!
H inner circles of the different groups
H', it seems that all the managors are
jH 'figuring on at loast three ballots toj
find, out where they stand and make
up their estimates on tho possibilities
jH The prediction of many soasoned poll-1
tlcians is that tho convention will have

that as a starting point, the seasoned
politicians aro qulto sure there will be

It may develop that somo of tho candl

good prospects for his own nomination

N. E. A. Staff Correspondent.
WINNIPEG. June 5. The Royal
Northwest Mounted police proudly
boast that there is no place In the
Canadian northwest, no matter how
remote lUbe from civilization, where
law may be violated with impunity.
And today as backing for that
claim an Eskimo, who killed two of
his fellow tribesmen, and an Indian,
who murdered his cousin In the Bar
ren Lands df the north, sit In cells at
Dauphini Manitoba, awaiting trial.
Sergeant W. O. Douglas of the fa
mous scarlet-coated force, who walked
and ran with a dog team" more than
2000 miles to arrest tho Eskimo and
take him to the nearest court, and Ser
geant B. H. L. Thompson, who trav
eled 500 miles in the same manner to
get the Indian, havo just arrived in

In Dauphin court house, where
Ouangwak, the Eskimo, and James
Wastaslcootr the Indian,, were bound
ever for trial, tho stories of the mur
deVa and-ths-long.o.bnses-came- out- -
The Eskimo shot his two victims be
cause ho wanted the wife of one of
tho men. Undor tho Eskimo code of
morals, ho could not havo her so long
as tho husband was living.
His second victim was slain as a
measure of precaution; he was the
husband's brother and Ouangwak
surmised he would try to avenge the
Ouangwak freely confesses that he
shot Angalookyouak through the head
while ho slept and that he killed the
brother, 'Alccnnilok, by shooting him
through tho breast. Ho Is particularly
proud of the way In which ho cowed
tho entire tribe.
After the murders, he took Anga
lookyouak's wlfo to his own igloo and.
with rlflo In hand, challenged any or
all members of the tribe who desired
to dispute his possession of tho woman
or tho manner In which he had won
her, to step forward and bo shot. It
made hltn the hero of the tribe.
The killing occurred last August at
Lake Yathkyed, known to the natives
as Shekolookyouak, about 900 miles
straight north of Winnipeg. Sergeant
Douglas, who is officer in charge of
the mounted police at Fullerton, the
farthest north polico post on Hudson
bay, received the news in December.
Travelers had brought back news of
the "Terrible Lover's" killings.
Polico Sets Out.
Douglas set out for Lake Yathkyed
on Dec. 19, arriving there and mak
ing tho arrest Feb. 9.
Ouangwak offered no resistance.
With Ida prisoner and the woman,
Tho officer and Ouangwak walked
and ran all tho way, but Cunuolt, tho
heroine of the tragic romance, who
weighed 1200 pounds, had to be hauled
on the dogaled.
"I had to take her to relatives at
Churchill," Douglas explained. "She
would have died at tho camp. It Is
the Eskimo custom to allow widows
and others, who havo no one to look
after them, to starve."
Douglas and the Eskimo then Went
down tho coast of tho bay In 'JS days,
facing a blizzard most of tho way and
frequently freezing their faces, feet

Bodv. He Savs H
WASHINGTON. June 5. President
Wilson, in" a telegram today, to ol
ficials of the railroad brotherhoods, jH
criticized congress for failing to tako
action with regard to the-high cost
of living, the conclusion of peace
'and important domestic legislation. ll
The telegram was in reply to a
message asking the president to pre
vent the adjournment of congress to
day. The executive said that in the
light of the record of the present con
gress "I have no reason whatever to
hope that its continuance in session
would result in constructive mea3
uros for the relief of the economic
conditions to which you call at
tention." Political Expediency
"It must be evident to all," the
president said, "that the dominating
motive which has actuated this con
gross Is political expediency rather '
than-rlofty purpose-.. to -sorvejile--pTib-lie
accepted some of the legislation en
acted by this congress because ho
"despaired of anything better."
The text of tho president's tele
"I received your telegram of Juno
3rd. You call my attention to mat
ters that I presented to the present
congress in a special message de
livered at a joint session of the two
houses on August S, 1919. In nine
months this congress has, however,
taken no important remedial action
with respect to the problem of the
cost of living on the lines indicated
in that address or on any other line.
Not only has the present congress
failed to deal directly with the cost
of living, but Jt has failed even to
give serious consideration to tho tir
gent appeal, oft repeated by me and
by tho secretaries of the treasury,
to revise the tax law as which in
their present form they are indi
rectly responsible in part for the
high cost of living.
The protracted delay in dealing
with the problem of the railroads,
the problem of the government
owned merchant marine, and other
similar urgent matters has resulted
in unnecessary burdens upon the
public treasury, and ultimately in
legislation so unsatisfactory that I
could accept it, If at all, only because
I despaired of anything better Tho
I present congress has not only pre-
vented the conclusion or peace in
Europe but has failed to present any
constructive plnn for dealing with
I the deplorable conditions there, tho
j continuance of which can only reflect
I upon us.
