BULL MOOSE ENDS
9,000 MILE TOUR
Spoke at Raleigh, North. Carolina
Lost Night and is Now on Way
to Oyster Bay.
MADE OVER 300 SPEECHES

Made From Rear End of Train

VISITED THIRTY-SEVEN STATES
Took Exactly One Month to Swing
Across Country After Start
(By United Press.)
On board Roosevelt private car,
homeward bound, Oct. 2.With his
voice so frazzled that it cracked at
times, Colonel Roosevelt made the
last of his speeches on his swing
around the circle at Ashville, N. C.
He did not spare himself work,
however, because he looked to a
day's rest tomorrow at such seden
tary pleasures as wood-chopping and
horseback riding when he reaches
Roosevelt expressed himself today
as greatly pleased with the receptions
accorded him throughout his south
ern tour. He believes he has blazed
the path for the Progressive^ move

Up to the last the Bull Moose lead

ocratic party and Governor Wilson.
Raleigh, N. C, Oct. 2.Theodore
Roosevelt, erstwhile president and
willing to try the job again, entered
this city yesterday on the home
stretch of the most comprehensive
campaigning tour ever undertaken by
a presidential candidate.
By the time he reaches New York
tomorrow, the Bull Moose leader will
have covered something over 9,000
miles, and have made 300 speeches to
perhaps 10,000,000 citizens, in ad
vocacy of the progressive principles
for which he is fighting. The 300
speeches do not count mere rear
end-of-the train talks, of which there
were scores. It does not give an idea
of the typically Roosevelt strenuosity
of the trip, of an enthusisiasm that
never waned, keen insight into local
conditions, an alertness and versatil
ity that transformed what were about
eight basic topics for speechmaking
into almost new addresses in city af
Thirty-seven states have been
traversed by the Bull Moose leader.
One month ag0 today he began his
swing around the circle by an ex
cursion into Connecticut. Thence he
swung westward, zigzagging up and
down to the coast, and then east
ward and through the south, return
ing along the Atlantic coast.
The Colonel had a physician along
with him, but he might just as well
has dispensed with his services, and
merely gargled his throat when it
got tired from speaking, for he was
in the same splendid trim today as
when he left Oyster Baystill sun
burned and vigorous in every move
"Wihat I'm anxious to do now,"
said the Colonel today, "is to get
back to Oyster Bay, play a few sets
of tennis, take a ride or a walk, and
then I'm ready again."
Throughout the trip the Colonel
has worn just one suit of clothes.
Indeed, his wardrobeand his sim
plicity was reflected in the fact that
he carried only one big kit bag and
two suitcasesonly contained the
one business suit and a frock coat.
That one gray suit was sadly worn
and wrinkled and creased and dirty,
as its wearer ought to have been af
ter such a trip, but the Colonel isn't
much on style. His black felt som
brero was almost equally marked
with wear and travel.
Here was the usual Rooseveltian
program day by day:
Arise at 7 o'clock.
Shake hands with a crowd and
make a two minute talk, perhaps in
the middle of his breakfast at 8
Talk politics with local Bull
Moosers,, interspersed with perhaps
a couple of set speeches.
Grab luncheon at 1 o'clock.
More speeches, and in between
times, rest. (Rest, according to the
Colonel's notion, consists of reading
such books as the history of the Sec
ond Empire, the French Revolution.
Former Tennessee Governor, Who
Is Again Democratic Nominee.
or some of the French essayistsin
their own language.
Dinner, say about 7.
More speeches, probably up to 11
o'clock, and then to bed.

that the Colonel sandwiched in daily

about half a dozen stock jokes or
"brighteners", but they were sprung
with just as much spontaneity yes
terday in the south as they were in
Connecticut nearly a month ago. And
they always fetched the crowd. One
favorite was for the Colonel to shoe-'
the little ones away from the rear
of the train, and then remark confi

squeaky falsetto the ex-president al
ways adopts when he is humorous:
"You know, 1 don't want to lose any

was another of the Colonel's favor

The Bemidji high school foot ball
team will play Akeley Saturday af
ternoon instead of Thief River Falls
as previously announced. The Thief
River date has been tentatively post
poned for a week but definite ar
rangements have not yet been made
by Coach Carson. The team will
leave for Akeley at 6:30 a. m. over
the Great Northern and will return

Akeley is but forty miles from Be

STUDENTS TO PUT ON PLAY.
Students of the high school have
selected Friday night, Nov. 1, as
the date for the play which will be
produced to raise money with which
to pay off the Chippewa debt from
last year. The 1912 class went about
$100 behind on the Chippewa and
the school will try to reduce this
debt by putting on the play. Several

is a chance that Senator Beveridge

Marie Tarnovski Released From Pri
son After Serving Two Years of
Eight Year Sentence.
PLOTTED TO BUI. HUSBAND
Used Lover As Tool In Order to Be
Free to Marry a Third As She
TRIAL TOOK SIX MONTHS
Prosecution Showed She Remained in
Vienna While Murder Was
Caried Out By
Borne, Oct. 2. After having serv
ed less than half of her eight yean
prison sentence, the Countess Marie
Tarnovski, often spoken of as the
most beautiful and captivating queen
of the great criminal adventuresses
of ihistory, has been pardoned by the
Italian government. The announce
ment of the pardon has aroused much
interest and not a little public criti
cism of the action of the authorities
in setting at liberty a woman who,
in the language of Prof. Rossi of G
noa, the distinguished alienist and
psychologist, is suffering from "a dia
bolical malady which makes her un
answerable for her acts, and wbo
should be so confined as to prevent
iher from injuring others or herself."
For two years the woman has been
confined in prison in Venice on a
charge of murder. With her two lov
ers, a Moscow lawyer and a young
Russian official, she was convicted in
1910 on a charge of successfully con
spiring to murder her hxrabapd. t3oont
Paul Kamarovski, 1907. The charges
were based on the accumulated evi
dence produced through an exhaus
tive investigation by the Austrian
and Russian police, by the confes
sions of the lovers, Naumoff and Pri
lukoff, and even by the confession of
the countess herself, which, however,
she later denied and retracted.
The Countess Tarnovski, despite
her long career of intrigue and ad
venture, is now but little more than
thirty years of age and is said to be
as beautiful as ever. She is the
daughter of a noble Russian family
and was educated in a convent.
WCuile still in her teens she eloped
with Count Tarnovski, a wealthy
man, who after their mariage treated
her with great brutality. She grew
to hate him and deceive him. One
of 'her lovers, Borgevsky, was shot
by her husband and died in her arms.
Another, a Russian officer named
Stahl, committed suicide, and it is
alleged that he did so at her insiga
tion. Her brother-in-law, the young
er Tarnovski also committed suicide.
In 1903 the Countess met Prilu
koff, a Moscow lawyer, who desert
ed his wife an dfamily, embezzled
his clients' money, and traveled
through Europe with her. On their
voyages they met Naumoff, a neuro
tic young man of twenty-one, who al
so came under her spell. Later she
encountered Count Karmarovski, to
whom she became betrothed.
In the summer of 1907 the Coun
tess, according to her own account,
became tired of her wanderings with
her lovers, and began to think of
marrying Count Karmarovski and
settling down. Prilukoff, she assert
ed at her trial, suggested that mur
der was far preferable to matrimony.
Then it was that the plot to insure
the Count's life and then kill him be
gan to be hatched. The first step
was to induce him to insure his- life
in her favor for $100,000.
The next step was the inflaming
of Naumoff against Kamarovski, and
this was affected in a simple and in
genious manner. A telegram was
drafted, addressed to the Countess,
and signed with Kamarovski's name.
It contained the foulest insults
against both the Countess and Nau
moff. This telegram was sent from
Vienna to Venice, and telegraphed
back to Vienna. There Prilukoff
and the Countess caused it to toe
shown to Naumoff, and the latter,
in a frenzy of rage, hurried to Ven
ice to take vengeance on tihe suppos
Naumoff made his way to the
Count's villa early In the morning
of Sept. 4, 1907. Brushing past the
maid, who opened the door, he strode
into the Count's bedroom. The lat
ter, awakened by his entry, cried out
in alarm. Naumoff, without a word*
fired at him five times with a revoi
ver, inflicting mortal wounds. Nmn-
