ALASKA FRAUD
CASES RESULT
IN NEW TRIAL
Albert Frost and Others
Are Placed on Trial
in Chicago Charged
with a Bribery.
CHICAGO, Nov. 9. ? Albert C.
Frost, Oliver \V. Bourkc and Burt
D. Wing were today placed on trial
in the United States District Court
charged with conspiracy to bribe a
federal juror three years ago.

called Alaska land fraud case, tried
by United States Federal Judge l-an
dis in March, 1913. Oliver Bourke
was the Juror alleged to have been
bribed.
GERMAN SHIPS
INTERNED MAY
BE TAKEN OVER
London Paper Suggests
a Way Nations Can Be
Reimbursed for
Their Losses.
LONDON, Nov. 9. ? Neutral ac
tions are offering the suggestion that
they uso German ships interned In
their ports to compensate them for
submarine losses, this by the ship
ping correspondent of the Times.
Discussing teh world shortage in ton
nage, the correspondent says:
"In view of the continued wanton
destruction of neutral ships, British
owners are wondering how much
longer neutral countries are going to
allow the German vessels to lie idle
in their ports."
After stating that there arc nine
ty German ships in Chilean harbors,
the correspondent continuees: "Chili,
like all neutrals, is suffering from
lack of tonnage. Therefore, in view
of British ship owners Chile, if she
will not use these ships to export her
products to Europe, should be asked
to lease them to a power which can
employ them and who will indemnlf>
her for any loss In the port and har
bor charges."
SOARING PRICE
OF BREAD IS TO
BE INVESTIGATED
Women of Manitoba Are
Asking Government of
Canada to Probe i
into Condition. i
WINNIPEG, Man., Nov. 9.?At an 1
xccutlve meeting of the Local Coun- '
il of women yesterday a resolution
.?as passed dealing with the high 1
ost of living, as follows:
"That this local council (represent- >
ig 59 of the women's organizations ,
r the city) petition the government
f Manitoba to make an inquiry,
trough the public utilities commis- \
loner into the cost of bread for .
le purpose of ascertaining whether 1
le present price is Justified." *
Mrs. McWilliams, who brought up '
le subject, said she had learned *]
om three reliable sources, all quito
idependent of each other, that in ?
)ite of contrary statements of mill- _
?s and bakers of the country to the L
mtrary, practically no No. 1 flour *?
as used by the bakers in bread for f
hich they charge seven cents per c
af. Using the exket export prices
c flour In a 2 ounce loaf costs at p
esent prices slightly less than 2^ -
nts for a standard loaf. fc
BRYAN MAKES
COMMENT ON
THE ELECTION
v
If Wilson Is Re-Elected
Without New York's Aid
It Is Signal Victory
for Democrats.
LINCOLN. Nob.. Nov. 9.?William
Jennings Bryan, departing for Den
ver this morning -aahi:
"If President Wilson is re-clected
it will be a signal victory and all
the more valuable to the Democratic
party because his re-election was
without the aid of the State of New
York It has been assumed hereto
fore that New York was necessary
to succeed and that assumption has
been a restraint on the progressive
legislation until this administration
entered upon its work."
DIPLOMATS BADLY
TREATED WHILE ON
A FOREIGN MISSION
BUCHAREST, Nov. 'J. Tho mem
bers of the Rumanian diplomatic
missions from the Turkish and Bul
garian capitals have arrived in Buch
arest, after an arduous journey.
On the outbreak of the war, the
Rumanian ministers and their staffs
In Constantinople and Sofia were ar
rested by the police. The members
of both missions were interned at
Sofia, where they were treated brut
ally. Very little food was given
them and they were subjected to
vigorous personal search. Badly
cooked potatoes were their chief
food.
JUST A PLAIN BOY
1 guess there ain't no other Joy
Like Liz an' me find In our boy.
Why, I waste hours, I orter be
A workin' outside; you see
We stand, my arm about her waist
Her fingers on my shoulder laced.
An' watch him rool upon the bed
An' kick them wrinkled legs out
spread
An' crow that furrin talk of Ills
Known just to Liz.
An' then them wobbly hands go out,
An' wander them fat toes about;
An' when there ifound thct wide,
wide smile
An' laughin, twlnklin' eyes grow
while
Well now I guess I squeezes Liz
For she sure pinches me. Gee whiz!
There's somethin' that Just chokes
us tight,
Tliet ain't no sorrer, just delight
In havin', lovin' such a joy j
As thet new boy.
How It's Done
"Do you think any girl ever pro
posed in leap year, as they say,
Mary?" he asked.
"Not unless she was obliged to,"
was the reply. '
"Mm! I never thought of that,"
lie said, after a pause.
"But, Tommy," she said, laying
ler head affectionately on his arm
ind looking up into his oyes, "you,
[ am sure, will never force me to
hat humiliation?"
"No?er, that is to say?of course
lot! I?"
And the banns will be called very
thortly, and the local jeweler is
loing very well this week.?(London

ROUND OAR
Heating Stoves and Ranges
The past few years have seen many improvements
made in the designs of Beckwith Round Oak Stoves.
They are probably handsomer today than they ever
were. But fundamentally they are the same good,
old ROUND OAK. The stove that lasts a lifetime;
the stove that holds the fire; that is regulated like a
lamp and gives just the heat you want, when you
want it.
