THREATEN TO KILL
WOMEN OF" HOME*'
Anonymous Letter Produced in
Sioux City Court Smacks of a
Black Hand Society.
peoial to The Journal.
Sioux City, Iowa, Nov. 29.The ex
istence in Sioux City of what resem
.bles a Black Hand society came to
light today in connection with the po
lice court cases against Arthur Premo,
who was arrested for threatening to
shoot Police Matron Thurston. Assert
ing that Premo was not capable of
caring for his three children, the po
lice matron was instrumental in hav
ing them given to the Boys' and Girls'
home, a charitable institution.
In Premo'a trial, a letter was intro
duced which was sent to one of the
officers of the Boys' and Girls' home,
signed the "Cowboy Gang," contain
ing the threat that the recipient and
her son would be killed and two other
officers of the home put out of the
way unless the Premo children were re
stored to their parents.
"We are a big bunch of cowboys,"
says the letter, "and we do not go to
law. We fight and we kill. Unless
you produce those children we will get
you and .your crowd. Don't delay, for
we are not making a bluff."
For eight pages the letter runs on,
containing threats in almost every line.
The officers of the home, who are
among Sioux City's leading women,
.have been terrorized by the threats,
and hardly dare leave their homes.
The police have been appealed to for
protection.
DIVORCES WIFE
AT HER BEQUEST
Wyoming Woman Scorns Marital
Union and Laws of Church
and Man.
Special to The Journal.
Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 29.Because his
wife believes in free love and urged
him to sue for a separation from her,
Robert Eaton has obtained a divorce.
Mrs. Eaton lives in Cody, Wyo.s and
is willing to be a friend and sweet
heart to her husband, but not a wife,
according to a letter she wrote him,
Which he introduced.
In this letter she said in part:- "If
we could live and work together as
friends and lovers, I would gladly wish
to be with you again. Unless you get
a divorce we can never do so."
Later Mrs. Eaton wrote her husband
another letter along the same lines.
She saidshe wanted to correspond with
him until they met again. She says
she will not marry again, altho she
hag found a noble man who .is lovable
and kind to her and believes just as
she does.
I don't believe in marriage any
more," she wrote. "There is a higher
law than the law of church and man.
Our lives are an example. I love you
and you desire to be with me. Yet
what a mistake our marriage was. If
we had stayed single we would have
been friends and lovers and been rea
sonably happy together."
MISS SHONTS NOT ENGAGED
She Denies that She Is to Marry French
Duke.
New York, Nov. 29.Arnold Shank
lin, American consul general at Pana
ma, and Joseph B. Bishop, secretary of
the Panama canal commission, arrived
here yesterday on.the steamer Finance
from Colon. Other passengers on the
Finance included the wife and two
daughters of Theodore P. Shonts, chair
man of the commission, and Mrs. R. R.
Rogers, wife of the governor of the
canal zone.
Miss Theodora Shonts, when shown
a dispatch from Paris reporting her
engagement to the Duke de Chaulnes
and Picquigney, replied with a laugh,
"Not guilty."
"There is neither truth nor reason
in the report," she said. "Our fami
lies are friends and I am particularly
well acquainted with the duke's sis
ters, but there is absolutely no truth
in,the dispatch."

Going to California This Winter?
If so, you are perhaps wondering
which is the best way to go. The
"Omaha Road" offers the proper solu
tion of this problem with their through
tourist car service by three different
routes as follows:
Tuesday car leaves Minneapolis 7:50
p.m. St. Paul 8:30'p.m., going via
Omaha, Denver, D. & R. G, Salt Lake
City and the new Salt Lake Route to
Los Angeles. This route is through the
scenic portion of the Rocky mountains.
Thursday car leaves Minneapolis 8:30
p.m. St. Paul 9:05 p.m., going via
Omaha, Union Pacific and Southern Pa
cific to San Francisco, thence down the
coast line to Los .Angeles.
Saturday car leaves Minneapolis 9:10
a.m. St. Paul 9:40 a.m., going via
Omaha, Kansas City and the Santa Fe
through .the Land of Sunshine.
This gives the traveler choice of three
Splendid routes, the best through car
service, and all at a reasonable price.
