TO SHOW UP LAV Labor-Going in for Old Politics Game in Kansas. May Result in Change In Pres . ent Primary System. TO CONTROL NOMINATIONS Eyery Union Family Urged to Vote in G. O. P. Primary. Will ' Then Cast Ballot for ."Right" Man in November. BY A. L. SHULTZ. Organized labor Is going in for 4 (im of old school politics in Kansas this year. If its apparent purpose is carried out, some of the forward look ing gentlemen In Republican politics may be disposed to admit that the state-wide primary law needs fixing. Just at this time organized labor with no ihouBhfof voting the Repub lican state and national ticket in No vember is planning to go into the Re publican primary. There Is. of cour 'e. Just one purpose in the labor moire. That is control of the nominations. Propably 75 per cent of organized labor Isn't so much as related to the Republican cause, but that makes no difference. The pri mal y law was enacted with the avowed Intention of letting the "pee-pul" rule. Ko a braad minded, gerterous hearted end self-styled proyrf-ssive legislature fixed the law in such a manner that the "pee-pul" from a minority party might help to nominate candidates of a majority party. Organisation More Solid. I-abor will probably go into the cam paign this year more solidly organ ized than ever before. Hostility to the Industrial court act has inspired the union district managers, vice presi dents, secretaries and walkine- dele gates to action. There are visions of slipping Jobs if the Allen plan for pro tection of the Innocent public against industrial rows should be generally udopted. A vote of a member of the hod car riers' union who whoops it up for the Democrats in lata October and early November kills a vote of a life-long Republican farmer or business man when properly cast in early August. All that is necessary is to call for a Republican ballot on primary day. Then the voter has the opportunity of supporting the candidate who is right" or aiding In the nomination of a weak candidate who might be defented by the opposition party in November. Eyes on 1021 Legislature. Just at this time the leadership In organised labor has its eyes on the JS21 legislature. Its purpose is the repeal of the industrial court act. According to plans outlined in To pel:a this week, every labor union member, as well as member of his family, will be urged to vote tn the Republican primary especially in dis tricts where there are legislative con tests. These same votes will be de llveied, wherever possible, against Governor Allen, head of the Republi can stats ticket. In the November elec tion. Bhnuld Governor Allen be named as the Republican nominee for president or vice president . in Chicago next month, an even keener Interest in Re publican, primaries in Kansas would be aroused in labor ranks. The radi cal leadership would then seek the nomination of a candidate favorable to their program. Failing to secure such a nomination, the votes would be delivered in November to the more favorable Democrat. It Is ail an old styis fame of playing both ends to win. - To Show t'p Primary System. Pome time in June the Democrats will meet in Topeka to name a hand pleked state ticket. The labor inter ests will send their representatives to th. meeting. They are expected to have a high card In the selection of candidates for state offices and con gressional nominations. Under the broad, benevolent pro visions of the Kansas primary law, a voter may change his politics every ten minutes.

Labor will play a wide, open and loose game under the present leader ship. It may not exactly help labor's standing in the final analysis. It is quite certain, tho, to bring to the at tention of the general public some of the ridiculous features of the present state primary system. LIKE NEW SYSTEM - Co-opcrntion by I. C. C. In Congestion Problem Benefits All Concerned. New York, May 2i. -Freight" con ditions thruout the country will be greatly benefited by the interstate commerce commission's control of routing cars, but there will be little immediate effect on the congested condition in eastern freight terminals, according to statements today by rail road officials. The railroad authorities said too many causes other than the car short age were contributing to conditions in the New York district and thruout the East. "The most important thing brought out by the order," Robert Parsons, general monager of the Erie railroad, declared, "is the practicability of the government and the railroads work ing in close co-operation. , "The carrying out of the orders will have the effect of moving only essen tial commodities." HANOVER BANK (Continued from Page One. show the smaller mortgage was paid. There is no record as to Jaedicke's use of the $4,000. A Washington countv widow gave Jaedicke j 14,000 for the purchase of some property. Records show Jae dicke bought the property but took, title in his own name. It is not known whether the deed presumed to be somewhere among his papers will show an assignment to the woman. Confidence In Jncdicke. x So great was the public confidence in Jaedicke that he carried in his bank the money of almost every fam ily as well as business house and in stitution in the community. Funds of the German Lutheran church, of which the banker was a member, were also deposited in the bank. It was this fund which Jaedicke in his pa thetic appeal asked to have restored. Bankers thruout the state and in the clearing house centers were will ing to give Jiedicke almost any ac commodation. Because of this un usual credit, his shortages in the com munity are expected to show an enor mous total. In fact the total losses may never be known. The bank did not operate under the state bank guar anty act.. Left With Iiittle Cash. That the banker left home with lit tle readv cash is the belief of exam iners who have checked and re checked the accounts of the bank. The cash account of the bank is but a few hundred dollars short, it is asserted. Many of the Jaedicke drafts have been protested. This situation leads to further belief tnat me nauuvci banker may have been the victim of a gang of shrewd check and draft man ipulators who left bim holding the sack. Again, the drain on the bank may have continued over a period of many months and operations conduct ed in such a manner that Jaedicke could not escape. Several weeks ago Jaedicke bous;..t $35,000 additional life insurance. The policy was sent to him. But the premium has never been paid. Hatless and with two suitcases In his car, Jaedicke drove to Beatrice. Neb., when he closed the doors of his bank last Monday morning. From Beatrice, the banker telephoned to his bank to send for the machine. Then the earth seems to have opened up. No further trace of the missing banker has been found. Special agents for the federal gov ernment, the postal department and detectives for the Western Union will Join with the state banking depart ment in investigation of the case. Walter E. Wilson, state bank commis sioner, will return to Hanover tonight. He will spend Sunday in the little town. Wilson and Jaedicke lived in the same county, Washington. They were boyhood friends. Wilson swore to the complaint for the banker's arrest. JUST LIKE KANSAS Armenians HaTe Just as Few Beds Amour Them. But British Took Ammunition So They Are Helpless?' New York, May 22. There are about as many Bolshevists in Armenia as there are in Kansas, according to Capt. Paxton Hibben, field Artillery Reserve Corps, who has just returned from Transcaucasia, where he was on duty with the American military mis sion. "Ninety per cent of the population of the Republic ef Armenia are small farmers," Capt. HibDen declared. "They have been defending them selves ' without assistance from any body for the past two years, first against the Turks, then against the Georgians, then against the Tartars of Azerbaidjan. Now the Red Army has invaded . Transcaucasia In forca and the Armenian Republic has made peace with it, precisely as Finland and Ksthonia have made peace with Soviet Russia. But it does not mean that Armenia has "given up to the Bolsheviki" or anything like it. "The Armenians-have an army of 20.000 men, armed with old Russian Lebel rifles. But they have no ammu nition with which to fight, as the British during their occupation of Transcaucasia seized all the ammuni tion stored in the Armenian fortress of Kara and the great military store house of Alexandropol, and shipped it to Russia for the use of the Denikin army. "It is now in the hands of the Bol shevists, and the Armenians have no ammunition with which" to defend themselves. Naturally, they have been forced to make peace on the best terms they could get."

I'sed Quarter to Free Himself. Mr. Cox declared he worked his way out of the vault half an hour after the bandits had departed by pry ing the lugs with a silver quarter. He said the loot obtained by the robbers probably will total $15,000. It had not been counted early today and will be turned over to Mr. Cox this afternoon by the Commerce Trust company to whose care it was entrusted last night. Mr. Cox declared the loot included about J10.000 in liberty bonds. $2,000 currency and about $3,000 In coins and securities. When first taken to the hospital last night Ingram gave his name as Walter Bradford, but when told he probably would die, declared his real name is Ed Ingram. He said he has no living relatives and asked the au thorities to forget his name should he die. Find Bloodstained Coat. A eoat containing two bullet holes and blood stains was found today by officers searching the vicinity of the fight and is believed to have been dis carded by Roy Edwards, alias Eddie Lancaster, the bandit who escaped during the fight. Word was received hy the police that the high powered Hudson motor car used by the bandits probably was one stolen at Wichita recently. The car has twenty-six bullet holes and Is practically ruined, mechanics say. It bore a Missouri license tag Both the bandits in the hospital here refused today to make statements to Charles T. Gundy, county attorney, and declined to talk to a Catholic priest they sent for last night. The bandits were pursued to Atchi son lart night by Nemaha county, Nebraska, officers and the officers were 30 minutes behind them until tho lost the trail at Seneca. They ar-r'- ' here about two hours after the cattle. CARRANZA HAS '.Continued trim Page One.) another bloody chapter in the lurid history of Mexican politics. Dignified to the Last. Recent Mexican dispatches said the former president showed a dignity and bravery in his final days. He was described as leading his own men with fearless valor in the fighting near Apizaco, Rinconada and San Marcos during his flight from the capital. 'After the final defeat when Car rama and his men were forced to flee into th mountains, reports Indicated he was attempting to make his way toward the coast in the hope of ob taining passage to the United States or some other foreign country. Revolu tionary leaders indicated they would be perfectly willing to see him escape, considering that the simplest way of eliminating him as a factor in Mexican affairs. Bonillas's Fate Uncertain. The fate of Ignacio Bonillas, former ambassador to the United States, will be watched with particular interest by many Americans. He was considered by many a victim of circumstances. Torn fromNhls peaceful surroundings in America, the former ambassador re turned to Mexico last fall to begin his campaign for the presidency. , Bonillas was described as without particular personal ambition in enter ing the field for the presidency, and only doing so at the reguest of the Carranza group. The president felt that Mexico should be led by a civilian and picked Bonillas as the man to de feat the two generals. Obregon and Gonzales who were the leading candi dates. Failed to Read Signs. It was this decision which led to Carranza s downfall. Bonillas was greeted as a "made!' candidate and his candidacy regarded a joke. Failing toread the signs of popular opinion, Carranza continued stubr bornly to push Bonillas's cause. The immediate event leading up to the crisis was an attempt, to occupy the state of Sonorawith Carranza troops. Adolfo de La Huerta, the Sonora governor, opposed this action, and the Sonora "secession" followed. Meantime Obregon had been placed tinder nominal arrest in Mexicfc City for alleged plotting with the bandit, Roberto Cejudo. Obregon feared to remain tn the capital. Ho eluded police and fled in an automobile. Gen. Benjamin Hill, an American who had served in the Mexican army and was one of Obregon's leading supporters, accom panied hU chief. Soon after this Obregon's forces Joined him and the man who defeated Francisco Villa came out in open de fiance of the government. Soon after Gen. Gonzales declared against Car ranza and Obregon's and Gonzales's troops entered the capital, proclaim ing the supremacy of the revolution ary movement. Carranza, accompanied by, his fol lowers, fled toward Vera Cruz. The Vera. Cruz garrison, however, went over to the revolution and the first clash between the rival forces occur red south of Apizaco. In this clash the Carranza forces were successful and their trains proceeded to Vera Cruz only to be met by a superior orce. S . Five days fighting followed, ending in the complete defeat of the Carran zistas. The deposed president fled In to the mountains where he' was re ported killed. . V. S. to "Ask" Obregon. Washington. May 22. Disavowal of the murder of Carranza and punish ment of his slayers may be required of Obregon by the United States before this eountry will consider recognition of the new regime, it was understood here today. Official comment was withheld while the government made inquiries regarding the reported death of the fugitive president. - President Wilson refused to recog nize Huerta "with blood on his hands." The Mexican situation today was further complicated by the report for warded to the state department from Chihuahua that Villa has captured George Miller, a British citizen, and is holding him for $50,000 ransom.
