VOTING OVERTIME Russians Seize Upon Franchise Right Extravagantly. World Record in Balloting Setj by Newly Freed People. i CZAR MISJUDGED" HIS ARMY I j Artisan or Farmer With a Gun i Doesn't Make a Soldier. I Proved Merely a Menace Autocratic Discipline. to BY WILLIAM CI. SHKPHFRD. Petrograd, Mny 10, (By mail) All Russia Is voting. Not only the men, but the wnmpti. There isn't any wo man's right battle in Russia. Kvery body accepts the feminine, ripht to the ballot as perfectly natural. In all the hirttory of the world, perhaps, there has never been ho miich voting by bo many different sorts of human beings on so many different subjects, as there is in Russia this very minute. Soldiers are voting, workmen are voting; moulders, machinists, wash women, waiters, scrubwomen, ser vants, cab-drivers, street cleaners, rn ilro.'id men, peasants all are vot ing. They are voting for delegates to nvminsj: thtv are voting on hours DO YOU KNOW THAT Civilian health is the rock upon which military efficiency rests ? The little house fly i3 a dangerous thing, the time to "swat 'em" ia in the spring? The ingestion of wood alcohol may produce blindness ? Swimming is a healthful exercise ?

Trying to Interpret Results. And while this storm of voting is under way the new government, alert and on its tip toes, waits to know the popular will and translate it into law. The government has no army behind I it; and governments without armies i are powerless. The army is behind ! the people in fact, the army is the ! people. So long as the new govern- ment carries out the will of the people 1 it will have the support :f the army. Wherefore the masters of public opin ion, like Kerensky, keep themselves ' in the way of knowing what the public will on any certain matter may chance i to be. The first thing that strikes an American in Russia is the fact that this new .wentieth century form of wholesale war is going seriously to in terfere with the king business in Kurope. Despotic kings are safe Enough, if they have a professional army behind them and if their civil ian subjects are not allowed to possess arms. But professional armies are killed early, in such g eat wars as this, and it becomes necessary to put workingmen and farmers into uni forms and give them guns and expect them to take the places of profession als. This expectation went wrong in Russia. The uniform r.nd the gun did not change the workingman into a sol dier. They only turned him into a workingman with a gun and uniform, and if there's anything n.ore danger ous for a despotic monarch or for any king who thinks he rules by Di vine Right than a lot of workingmen with guns, the worried little man who has been planting potatoes In the gar den at Tsarkoe Selo would like to know about it. The coa'. may make the man but the uniform doesn't al ways make the blindly faithful sol dier. This is one of the newest dis coveries in the history of Russia. Cossack Only Farmer in Disguise. There was one brilliant second that stormy afternoon of the revolution when this fact that the uniform doesn't make the soldier dawned on the Petrograd crowd that was crying for bread near the Finnish railroad station- A policeman struck a citizen with a club. Nearby was a group of Cossacks on horseback, with knouts and swords a grim sight to a Russian crowd. But out from the group dash, ed a Cossack; he was as terrible look ing as any Cossack could be; he wore all the terrifying Cossack garb, gift of the czar; his face was black with the Cossack resolution which the Rus sian people fear. He swung his sword and the. crowd fell back, not knowing his purpose. The Pteel flashed thru the air and a crowd of thousands of people beheld, for the first time in Russian history, the sight of a Rus sian Cossack killing a Russian police man. The crowd cheered with delight. The cry went up "The Cossacks are with us! The Cossacks are with us!" This one incident, it is believed by some, marked the turning of the tide against the czar. It developed after ward that the Cossack with the sword was a farmer from the Cossack dis trict. The crowd soon learned that almost every uniform was only the disguise of some citizen like them selves. The rest 'a easy.

Perry Brewer of 1027 Western ave nue and Raymond Coolidge of 118 Greenwood avenue, 17 and 16 years of age respectively, were injured about 9:30 o'clock Friday night when the bicycle they were riding struck a rut ai. 1 threw them in front of an auto mobile driven by R. M. Williams, 1437 Fillmore street. The left rear wheel of the automobile passed over Brew er's body and possibly crushed the chest structure. He breathed with great difficulty after being taken to the St. Francis hospital but the phy sician in charge stated today that hia injuries are not necessarily fatal. Coolidge was struck by the car and his shirt was almost torn from his body, exposing numerous scratches and bruises on his back. However, he rode the bicycle from the scene of the accident near the Sachs greenhouse on the West Tenth street road to the hospital. Brewer was placed in the Williams's car and hurried to the hos pital. Both boys were riding the same bi cycle returning from a swim in Gage ibkb. xney naa no light on the h rai. and the road was lined with automo- Diies traveling both directions and carrying glaring headlights. They were roiiowing the Williams car and attempted to pass it. They turned in ahead of it to avoid meeting a west- uuumu car ana tnat Instant the wheel faltered and threw the boys directly in the path of the Williams car. The Williams automobile was stopped iwl ui me accident. Check That Cold Quick tnllllnn. "r ueeze (UStriDlltPH Thin .

War Department. Miss Stinson Won 14 Medals In China and Japan. Miss Katherine Stinson. the slip of a girl who has flown in her big mil itary aeroplane miles high, looped the loop, flown upside down and done spirals and every other startling stunt known to the flyers, will be one of the feature attractions at the Kansas Free Fair at Topeka next September. Miss Stinson is 20 years old and looks younger. She is 5 feet 4 and weighs 104 pounds. She is not at all said today that he would insist that a special grand jury be called to in vestigate alleged immoral conditions j in the vicinity of the big army post. It has been charged that negligence i of officials had allowed gambling dens, bootleggers and immoral houses j to flourish near the barracks. Assistant Attorney General Connor has been commissioned to make an investigation. BEES TO LANDS! (Continued from Page One) r reau at Washington and the inquirers ask for data on a variety of subjects, from bees to Montana lands. The let ters come from all parts of the west, and from many small Kansas towns. The inquiries are from persons in all walks of life, from hotel proprietors to real estate agents, and from house wives to locomotive engineers. They come from Chicago and Bonner Springs, from St. Louis and Beloit. Many are from the smaller cities; a great number from Topeka. The bread book is in great demand. For the great majority of inquirers, foods, methods of production and means of lowering the cost of living form the center of interest. Many in quirers want a Copy of the sailors' book. The army and special branches of the service are the subjects of a constant fire of questions. Literature on the most diverse topics is readily supplied, and in the few cases where none can be forwarded, reference to a direct source of information is given. But from suggestions to homestead ers to details of the duties of a hos pital assistant in the medical corps, information is on tap.

Miss Stinson raced Dario DeResta, the daredevil auto race driver, at the Sheepshead Bay race track, New York. DeResta drove his car at a nerve racking speed but Miss Stinson drove her aeroplane faster and beat DeResta. In China and Japan. Miss Stinson has Just returned to Chicago Vom a tour of China and Japan, where she won fourteen gold medals and made the Orientals look up to a woman for the first tims in history. "The Japanese are really the most polite people in the world," said Miss Stinson, "and the Chinese were just lovely, but I'm certainly glad I'm an American. They -make their wives walk ten paces in the rear on all pub lic occasions, and I wouldn't walk be hind any man. I want to walk be side him. "The women in China and Japan are waking up, tho. There is a big feminist movement. In Japan a Mrs. Fujisawa, who is one of the leaders of the woman movement there, gave me a check for $2,500 because she was so glad to see a woman do some thing that no other woman in Japan had done. That was when, clad in a kimono, I made my flight Over the city of Tokio. The Japanese were wonderful then. 'They are intensely Interested in aviation, and all the city turned out. They had the aviation field fenced in with slender bamboo rods. The crowd was tremendous and the inter est keen, but the Japs were so polite that not a rod was broken." . Flew to Sacred Temple. In China Miss Stinson made a flight from the grounds of the sacred tem ple of agriculture, which was former ly the Chinese imperial palace. "The Chinese have never forgotten what they consider the magnanimous conduct of the United States in re turning the indemnity money at the time of the Boxer uprising. A check for $3,000 was the gift of President Li to the young American who was teaching his people how to fly." Miss Stinson is on her way to New York to try out her new 150-horse-power army plane, with which she will soon make long distance flights from Chicairo. "When war was declared I cabled the offer of my services to the war de partment." she said. "I've heard nothing from them and I believe that there are plenty of men to do that work now. When the time comes I'll be ready. I'm just dying to be a sol dier." Miss Stinson's brother Ed is at San Antonio teaching aviation and her brother Jack has Just taken out his li cense. Her sister Margery is also fly ing at San Antonio. INVITES A VICE PROBE St. LoniH Official Claims He Is Goat and Locsn't Fancy the Role. St- Louis. Mo., June 23.
