WASHINGTON, Nov. S.-Shortago of
freight cars, the menace of a coat famine
ahd Industrial paralysis In some parts of
the country, has become so serious that
tho Interstate Commerce commission to
day proposed to shippers and railroads
drastic recommendations for Us relief,
with a thinly veiled intimation that
should they fall to remedy the situation,
tho commission Itself would find a way
to do so.
"Tho condition la acute," declared
.Commissioner Franklin K. Lane, who for
several weeks has been conducting an
Inquiry. "Great Institutions of the coun
trythe University of Michigan at Ann
Arbor for instance aro practically out
of fuel and cannot get It becauso there
are no cars for Its transportation. If an
Immediate remedy la not found, people
In parts of this country, will be freezing
to death becauso of their inability to
get coal."
The cur shortago Is said to have been
found .to bo due in part to delay In un
loading cars, the slow movement of
freight cars and failure of railroads to
return cars to tho lines owning them.
In the latter case It said railroads hold
cars, paying a nominal charge for their
use. Th s the commission denounces as
"nothing less than theft." The investi
gation of slow movement of freights de
veloped that a freight car averaged about
twenty miles a day and that wh.le one
was moving thirteen were standing still.
SuRReMtloiiH for Itcllef..
The commission makes several sugges
tions for tho Improvement of the effi
ciency of freight equipment and tho re
lief of tho car shortage:
"That a h'gher per diem rato shall bo
made to apply for tho use of cars as be
tween the carriers.
That an Inspection service be at onco
Instituted which shall report to the com
mission violations of the rules existing
which aro Intended to Insure the return
of cqu'pment (o the homo lfne.
"That operating officials be instructed
to mako fuller uso of locomotives and
cars by Increasing the speed of .freight
trains. An average movement of less
than twenty-flvo miles por car per day
Is not adequate to the need of times
such as these. An Increase of speed is
tantamount to an increase In equip
ment." ,
The commission's recommendations,
sent broadcast as a circular to the rail
roads and shippers of the United States,
points out that the commerce and Indus
tries of tho United States would suffer
great loss were a car shortage to con
tinue. It points out that beside the suf
fering wh-ch would follow a coal famine
from lack of cars, industries throughout
tho country would be stopped by lack of
raw materials and the people at large
would suffer serious embarrassments.

Asks Republicans
to Stand Firm for
Taf t andTkeir Party
An appeal to republicans of Nebraska
to vote for President Taft at tho election
Tuesday and thereby to vindicate the re
publican state executive committee In
saving the Integrity of the party In Ne
braska by action before the state supreme
court, has been Issued by tho committee.
Tho communication follows:
"The actions of your commltteo chosen
by you to -uphold the republican paity
in Nebraska, has been sustained by tho
highest court of our state. The position
taken by us has been maintained. Wo
have won every contested point. It Is
now up ,to you as the republican voters
to vindicate us at tho polls. Formerly,
we have won In great national crises,
because wo have been united, If wo fall
this time, it will bo because wo are not
united. .
Karly in this contest, many earnest,
patriotlo republicans fearing the triumph
of Roosevelt, who had turned traitor to
our party and sought to destroy It, de
termined to choose tho lesser of two evils
and vte for Wilson. As the tlmo has
passed, it has become more and more
apparent that this fear was not well
founded. Lent there may still bo some
republicans who believe they can best
serve their country and their party by
voting for Wilson for tle purpose of mak
ing the defeat of Roosevelt more certain,
; wo are making this appeal,
j "Tho election of Roosevelt Is conceded
by all well Informed pcoplo to be im
possible. In this state the fight is be
tween Taft and Wilson, not between Wil
son and Roosevelt. The republicans of
Nebraska aro still loyal to their party,
and It will continue to live and to bo a
militant force In publlo affairs, when the
names of thoso who traitorously at
tempted to destroy It, will be forgotten.
This Is the desjro of every truo repub
lican In tho state. We urgo you there
fore, not to desert your party in this
emergency, but bravely faco to the front,
march to the polls and cast your voto
for William Howard Taft, and a well
earned victory will bo yours.

John Maxwell, driven on the treacherous
Hattoras shoals during the night while
bound from Norfolk to Savannah, and
broken Into bits by the raging sea, clung

The sixth sailor hung on to tho rigging
until late this afternoon when, benumbed
by the cold and exhausted by the lash
ing of the waves, he was forced to re
lease his hold and was swept to death
in the sea. The lone survivor, who.
through glasses, appeared to be an agea
man, was making a bravo fight for Hfo,
but it is feared ho Is doomed.
An all-day battle was waged by the Ufo
savers, but tho tremendous seas and
forty-mile gale made It impossible for
them to launch their boats.

Myers boUeves Watts and his aid, Ar

GIBBONS TALKS OF ELECTION
Seeks to Awaken Citizen Without
Interest in Politics,
HE EXPRESSES NO PREFERENCE
Criticises Pessimistic Prophet" Who
ICnch CampnlKn Predict End of
Government If Favorite
Candidate Loses,
BALTIMORE, Nov. 3,-Cardlnal Gib
bons, In the cathedral here today, .de
livered an election eve sermon designed
to awaken "tho supine citizen who never
takes an Interest In the political welfare
of his country." He declared that If tho
future historian is called upon to record
tho decline and fall of tho American
republic ho will! ascribe as the cause "the
Indifference, lethargy and political apos
tasy of her own- son's," ,
Tho sermon was non-partisan as to the
personal prcferenco of the cardinal to
ward tho threo conspicuous candidates
for president. He asserted his Intoler
ance toward pcssimlstlo prophets, who
each campaign -predict tho end of tho
government unless their favorite candi
date Is elected and by a discussion - of
our form of government sought to show
that tho results of our election cannot
Bcrlously affect tho endurance of ths
republic. The sermon follows:
"It Is the habit of pessimistic prophets
to predict that our government will soon
come to an end, and 'that It Is already In
the throes of dissolution, and tho dis
aster Is sure to occur If their favorite
candidate Is defeated. These prophecies
are usually more frequent on tho eve
of a presidential election. I have been
listening to these dire prognostications
for over half a century.
"But In every Instance the American
people wake up In the morning after
election to find that they were disquieted
by false alarms and that the government
Is transacting Its business In the same
quiet and orderly manner as before.
Tito Momentous Crises.
"Two momentous crises occurred In
my own day which wore well calculated
to test the vitality and strength of the
republic. The first was the war between
the states, when the nation was cut In
twain, when fratricidal blood was ehed
over tho land and a tremendous conflict
was carried on for four years. This
calamity has happily ended, and the dis
membered states are now. more firmly
united than over before, because slavery,
which was the bono of contention, has
been removed once and' forever.
"Tho second crisis occurred In the pres
idential contest In 1876 between Tlldcn and
Hayes, Mr. Tilden was robbed of the
fruit of the victory which, I believe,
he honestly won, and by questionable
devices Mr. Hayes was declared the suc
cessful candidate.
"A nation that could survive these ter
rible strains must be possessed of extra
ordinary vitality and resouices, and leads
us to hope that In any futuro emergency
the leaders and statesmen of the re
public will rise to tho occasion and bring
order out of chaos.
"Another rtr.ong ground of confidence
I have In the stability and permanence
of tho republic, rests In the enlighten
ment, the good sense and patriotism of
the American people. You and your
fathers havo now for a century and a
quarter experienced and enjoyed tho
blessings of a strong and free govern
ment. And If you compare the results
of our political system with those of
other clvlllted nations, I do not think

Murderer Gives Up
After Many Hours'
Silent Treatment

ho struck Miss Singer down In solf-de-fenso
when alio attacked him with a

making, ho said, a suggestion to Mrs.
Kramer to go out and meet some men.
Kramer exonerated his wlfo from all
blamo In connection with the crime.
Kramer, the former clown, high dlvor
and circus acrobat, hold out twenty-four
hours ' longer than his wife. Ho paced
his cell all night begging for a word
from the ' turnkeys, who would not
vouchsafe him a syllable. Ho heard his
wife's agonized outcries when sho made
hor confession yesterday, but could get
no Information as to their cause or what
she - was saying. Today Captain Noot
baar began a systematic tagging of tho
man "that aggravated his silence. Sev
eral times on hour ho would pass the
cell arid would pause a second to say
"Well, do you want to see mo?" Kramer
each time refused, but at last broke
into tears and begged to be ullowod to
tell his story. First ho pleaded to see
his wife. It was not allowed.
"Don't send me back to that block
cell." he cried. "I'll toll it all."

adB lnvaluablo In procuring
reliable stenographic an 1 other
office help. Dut tho lawyer's
greatest opportunity Is In ap
plying Mb knowledgo of civic
and realty law for his own
profit In real estate and busU
ness transactions.
Tho wiso man employs
tho wonderful efficiency
of these little ads to locate
his prospects for him.
There is scarcely any
thing they cannot sell, and
hardly a trade they can
not arrange.
