Fugitive Killed by One of the
Six Men He Freed From
* - Prison.
By the Anotlated Pma.
LITTLE ROCK, Ark.. Deoember 10.
?The last escape of Tom 8daughter,
noted bandit, with a record of nearly
a score of breaks for freedom, from
southwestern jails and prisons, led to
his death in the Saline county hills at
the hands of one of the convicts be
liberated, according to the story on
which Sheriff J. J. Crowe's posses
early today were basing their search
for Slaughter's body.
The posses were awaiting daylight
early today to start on the trail of
the seven convicts, starting from the
point- where they abandoned their
bullet-riddled automobile and fled into
the woods. ? -
J. C. Howard, who surrendered with
four others of the six who accepted
Slaughter's offer of freedom, told of
ficials he shot Slaughter In the back
and had Intended td shoot Blra from
the moment the party made their
. The note Howard says he left in
the prison bearing the same state
ment could not be found early today.
Beside the body of Slaughter, ac
cording to Howard's statement, lay a
dying negro, wounded In a brush with
the authorities of Benton, who were
watching for the fleeing prisoners.
How Slaughter Escaped.
Slaughter's plan for escape began to
take form yesterday evening, when,
feigning Illness, he summoned a guard
and asked for a blanket. The guard
entered the death cell, where Slaugh
ter was to be quartered until Decem
ber 1C, the date set for his electrocu
tion, and advanced to the desperado's
cot. He was met with a gun in the
bandit's hands. The guard was dis
armed. and then taken to the war
den's office, where three other guards
were disarmed while Slaughter u^ed
a guard for protection. He then
locked the guards in a cell.
Continuing to the hospital ward.
Slaughter forced a nurse to lead him
to the warden's home. He made the
warden and his family return to the
prison, locking them In the death cel.
and the one adjoining.
Leaving the prison, Slaughter and
his companions took an automobile,
and the tires from another nearby,
and escaped, after attiring themselves
in civilian clothing.
Posses from Hot Springs. Little
Rock, Benton and nearby towns took
up the chase after the gun fight at
Benton, finally forcing the bandit and
his party into the woods of Sallna
county, where Slaughter was report
ed killed.
A number of prisoners. Including six
negroes who were sentenced in con- I
nection with the Elaine riots, refused
to accompany Slaughter In his escape. j
Howard a Farmer Trwety. j
Prison authorities today were en- j
deavoring to trace the source of the
pistol which gave Slaughter the J
chance to effect hia six-hour domina
tion of the penitentiary, disarm
guards, lock the warden and his fam
ily In the death cell, secure civilian
attire and an automobile for the
escape and offer freedom to all the
convicts who wished to join him.
Howard, the man who slew Slaugh
ter, Is twenty-five years old. He was
received at the penitentiary last
March to serve three yeara for for
gery. He was a railroad man in Hot
Springs, and was charged with fraud
ulently drawing tra*el pqy from (be
railroad by means of forged passes.
Shortly after Howard waa received
at the prison he was made a trusty
and assigned to the commissary. Some
time later, however, when goods
taken from the commissary were be
lieved to have been stolen by blm, bis
status as trusty was revoked. Prison
authorities said that his record was
not a good one. 5
Tom Slaughter Waa Pioneer in
Healdton Oil Field.
By the Anoclited Press.
OKLAHOMA CITT. Okie.. December I
10.?Tom Slaughter, alias Curley
Stone, was a pioneer driller in the;
Healdton oil field, according to In
formation on file in the criminal court
of appeals at Oklahoma City.
His Oklahoma history centers most
ly about Kagtcwn. one of the boom
centers of the original Healdton field
in Carter county. His first recounted
'escapade waa one with the propri
etor of a sandwich stand in Ragtown.
Slaughter and his companions were
thrown out of employment and they
contracted with the proprietor to dig
a slush hole for him. When they had
finished an argument about the pay
ensued, and the sandwich man was
warned to leave town. He did, but
not until that night, when his stand
was ?'lifted" and all Ragtown was in
vited to participate in a feast "on"
Several stories are old of how
Slaughter left the Healdton field, the
one given most credence being that
he took an automobile, drove it to
Fort Worth and told a garage pro
prietor there to write to the owner at
Ragtown and let him know where his
automobile was.
He was captured on his way back
to the field in another automobile
with a load of liquor. Pleading with
the officer that he was tired, but
Would prove his Identity when they
returned to Fo*t Worth, he was al
lowed to curl up on the rear seat of
the car while the officer drove back
Reaohing Fort Worth, the officer
found his prisoner had left him.

ST. JOSEPH. Mo., December 10.??
The shooting of the. bandit Slaughter

Kalanianaole Delegate to
Congress 20 Years?His
Career Full of Romance.
By the Associated Press.
^HONOLULU, T. H., November 5 (by
mall).?The decision of Prince Jonah
Kuhlo (Cupid) Kalanianaole against
being a candidate again for the po
sition of Hawaiian delegate to Con
gress, after twenty years' consecutive
servlee, will bring to an end?in so
far as mainland activities are con
cerned?a career unique in the annals
of American politics.
Prince of the royal blood of Hawaii,
educated abroad, attendant at the na
tive monarchs' court, a political pris
oner for one year following the at
tempt to regain the throne for Queen
LUiuokalani after the republic of Ha
waii had been declared, and delegate
from the islands to Congress for ten
successive terms, the genial prince,
who has long been a picturesque flg
plre at Washington, has decided to
forsake the glamor of life at the Na
tional Capital; "In order that I may
best serve my own people." by serv
ing on the Hawaiian homes commis
sion, established by Congress in an
effort to rehabilitate the dying Ha
waiian race.
Life Fall ef Rssusee.
The life of the prince has been re
plete with Incidents that breathe of
the romance that tinges the shores 01
his native isles. He was born In 1872
at Kapaa, Island of Kaual. His father
was the High Chief David Kahale
poull Piik'oi, a descendant of the King
of Kaual, the last of the Independent
monarchs to be overcome by Kame
hameha the Great, who consolidated
the lnslands into the Kingdom of Ha
waii and became its first ruler. Prince
Kuhlo's mother was the Princess
Klnolki Keh&ulike, sister of Queen
Kaplolani, the consort of King Kala
kaua. Kuhlo's elder brother was the
Prince David Kawanaaakoa. who died
in San Francisco in 1908.
Kuhlo and his brother were broufit
up In the court of King Kalakaua. the
"merry monarch" of Ha wait Kuhlo
attended school here and at St. Mat
thew's College at San Mateo. Calif.
Later he was a student at the Royal
Agricultural School In England, and
also took a course at a business col
lege in the United States.
Later ha spent a year la Japan as
the guest of the Japanese govern
ment. King Kalakaua was credited
with a secret desire that- Kuhlo might
marry a princess of Japan, which
would strengthen the position of the
Hawaiian monarch. The desire. If
held, came to naught, however.
?s|s(e< While la Prim.
While in prison he was secretly en
gaged to Elisabeth Kakanu Kalel
wohl-Kaauwal. the present princess,
who visited him in prison every day
and brought him food. About a year
after his release, they were married
and toured the world for two years.
Now. with his twenty years of serv
ice In Congress behind him, with the
first Hawaiian settlers about to take
up homesteds In accordance with the
rehabilitation act, the prince Is living
auietly with the princess In his home
upon the site of Queen Llliuokala.nl s
former beach castle,, by -the sea at
Walkikl. with the ocean surf booming
against the shore, scarcely ten yards
from his windows.

Unsuspecting Germans Also Take

BERLIN, Germany. December 10.?
Now that American money will buy
several times as much in Berlin as
before the war American confidence
men have become numerous in the
German capital. Every day or so a
case comes up in which some banker
or hotelkeepet has accepted a $100
Confederate bill and paid something
like 25.000 paper marks ffr lt.
The other day a respectable look

Christmas Seals Sale Aid in
Providing for Tuberculosis
Washington Is in pressing need of
a children's sanatorium where suffer
ers from tuberculosis In an active
stage can be given early care and
treatment until the disease is arrested,
according to the Washington Tubercu
losis Association. The necessity for
an institution of thi3 kind is empha
sized by the association during the
Christmas seal sale and health week.
Improved methods of diagnosis have
developed more of these cases, the
association said, but the city, at pres
ent, has no adequate 'hospital -pro
vision for these suffering children.
Pliwi With Adults.
A few. however, of twelve years of
age and over are sent to the Tubercu
losis Hospital, where they ale obliged
?o be placed with the adult pa'ippts
but as the hospital has no 'special
fpoill'ies for ruriug far "'??ah
they often, when not sick enough to
be in bed, are a problem both to the
physicians and the nurses, as well as
the adult patients.
A recent report of the board of
children's guardians, wh'ich cares for
the District's dependent children who
are without suitable homes and who
must be supported at public expence.
stated that fifty of Its wards were
suffering from tuberculosis. These
children cannot safely be placed in
boarding homes with normal children.
States and cities having children's
sanatoria are usually unable to ac
tept patients from outside their own
borders, as they frequently have a
waiting' list of their own.
Stresses Nrf4 of Sanatorium.
In 1918 the Washington Tubercu
losis Association, in its annual report,
speaking of the need of a children's
sanatorium, said: "Even better than
a day school for this class of children
would be a sanatorium where the
benefits of rest, special feeding and
open-air treatment, with medical at
tention and nursing service, might be
furnished twenty-four hours a day
seven days a week, instead or five
hours five days a week, as at pres
ent. Much of the perspective gain ob
tained at the tuberculosis schools is
sacrificed on account of the intermit
tent character of the treatment af
forded. and frequently such gain as
is made may be lost during vacations
or because of home conditions."

Association Claims Greater
Economy on Haul Within
Animal's Work Radius.
CHICAGO, December 10.?Data com
piled by the Horse Association of
America Indicates that there are more
than 19,000.000 horses and mules in
the United States, 17,000,000 of which
are on farms and more than 2,000,00V
in cities, according to the annual re
port of Wayne Dinsmore, secretary
of the association, made here before
the annual meeting of the association
In speaking of the value of Sorses
and mules as compared with automo
bile trucks. Mr. Dinsmore said:
"As a result of studies, other sur
veys made and definite statements
with cost figures furnished to us by
Arms who own and use 51.927 head of
horses, we are now in a position to
say positively that on hauls within a.
horse's working radius?i. e.. the dis
tance ?. team can travel in a day?
horses furnish more economical serv
ice than motorized equipment.
Stare ui Hove Delivery.
"On local delivery work, from store
to store or house to house, the evi
dence is overwhelmingly for horse
drawn equipment. Ice companies,
coal companies, bakeries, inilk com
panies and all others whose business
Involves frequent stops and delivery
work, agree emphatically with the
great packing companies whose ver
dict is, "On all hauls under twenty
miles per day the horse is most eco
nomical.' "
In speaking of horses in the cities,
Mr. Dinsmore said:
"Our investigations in cities during
the past year show that competition
will force all cities to develop
