BIG PROFITS REALIZED
IN GERMAN TEXTILES
Berlin, Oct. 28, Ten large German
textile concerns earned larger profits
for the year ended April,- 1920, than
in the best years before the war.
One Bremen concern increased its
profits as compared with last year
from 4,400,000 marks to 16,800,000
marks. Including, shares allotted
gratis s to the shareholders, the divi
dend paid is 62 per cent.
A cottom company increased its
profits from 2,000,000 to 9,700,000
Of the other companies the mini
mum dividend is 16 per cent and there
are several dividends exceeding 30
and one exceeding 40 per cent.
The profits are due to the big price
rise. of', last winter. All finished
Ecods put on the market during the
winter were priced on the basis of the
price of raw cotton at time of their
sale, and as raw cotton rapidly ad
vanced in price the public was charg
ed .several hundred per cent more
than the actual production cost. .

great hope on the propaganda of
Enva Pasha in Afghanistan and Be

MARSHAL DOWNED A BAD MAN
SOVIETS WILL OUST
THE LOAFING CLASS
The negro, Albert Hicks, who was
shot by , Marshal Thomas yesterday,
was alive at noon today, and ha3 a
slight chance to recover. -
Immediately after he fell, he was
taken to the. Marion county hospital,
where he "was operated upon with as
much skill and care as a millionaire
could have been. He was then taken
to the colored hospital, where no ef
fort to save his life. will be spared.
It seems that this man has a crim
iral record of length for his years he
is about twenty-five. A watch stolen
from Baird's store a few days ago
vas found on him, and he confessed
to that robbery,
fessed to more, but was too weak and
stunned to talk much. The marshal,
hunting thru the man's quarters later
in the day, found quite a quantity of
stolen goods, among them some taken
from Fausett's store. The pistol he
carried was an uptodate and expens
ive gun, and also probably stolen. -It
is likely that Marshal . Thomas-has
cut short the career of a professional
ciiminal. ;-'.-;, W-V ": - f
The shooting occurred at the union
station. Marshal Thomas was there
a short time before noon, waiting for
a train to come in. He noticed the
negro and with the intuition that a
veteran police officer -generally has,
suspected, him of being a bad charac
ter. He went up to him and began
passing his hands over him to see if
he had any weapons.. His right hand
struck the gun in the negroes pocket,
and immediately Hicks, backed away,
pulling the gun as he did so The
marshal drew his own gun and fired
three times as fast as he could draw
the trigger and the negro went down.
The shooting was an act of self
defense as well as enforcing the law.

GERMANS WANT TO COME
TO UNITED STATES
Paris, Oct. 10". Emigration from
Germany to the United States will be
tremendous if no barrier is raised by
the later country when peace is final
ly signed', according to reports reach
ing Dr. Rupert Blue, surgeon general
of the United States Public Health
Service, upon whose staff of Ameri
can doctors is responsibility of med
ically examining every emigrant
bound for America. "
The Germans wish to emigrate, ac
cording to Dr. Blue's reports, because
of the high cost of living - and the
heavy taxes that will be levied for
many years to come.
Wholesale emigration from Ger
many to the United State3 is impos
sible now because the two countries

to vise a maximum of 25 German
