CHARGED WITH MURDER
ST. LOUIS—What was the story
that Mrs. George Klein told St.
Louis police about the murder of
her friend, pretty Mrs. Perry Rich
wine?
As a result of this story, which
police are guarding closely and
which they say will not be disclosed
until the case is before a jury. Dr.
Robert H. McCracken, -one of the
most prominent physicians of south
ern Illinois, was arrested and
charged with the crime.
Dr. McCracken, llfty-six. lives in
Belleville, Til. He is a former coro
ner and was one time health com
missioner of Hast St. Louis. He is
now under $4 0,000 bail.
The body of Mrs. Richwine, who
was thirty-five, was found lying on
»he dining room table by her son.
Carl, when he came homo from
I school. In one corner of tiro base
I vent the boy found also theverum
1 o]ed body of his grandfather Wil
| liam Rieinvine. Both had been shot
to death.
For twdfcweeks police clews proved
fruitless. Then Mrs. Klein came
forward with her story and Dr. Mc
Cracken’s arrest followed.

TRENTON, Jan. 25:—"This year
is going to see the last dying gasp
ot' the wet interests,” declared
.Mrs. Eiliian F. Feickert, of Plain
fjeld, speaking here yesterday at the
first of the winter forums of the
New Jersey Women’s Republican
Club, held in this city. “Governor
Edwards is going to be disappointed
with the Democratic majority in
Hudson county, although I think he
really believes he is going to win.
It rests with us, the Republican
women, to see that his aspirations
are not realized. We must elect a
Republican governor and United
States senator and all other candi
dates of our party down the line.”
Success marked the opening of
the series of forums. Yesterday’s
was to be devoted particularly to a
discussion on the subject of "High
wavs,” and the G. O. P. women
leaders, who were present from a
number of sections of the state,
heard authorities both for and
against the bills in the legislature
fur so-called “open specifications” in
road contract bidding. State Sena
tor William H. Parry, of Essex, and
State Senator Emmor Roberts, of
Burlington, discussed their bills
which cover this subject.
Senator Parry said his measure is
similar to the one he introduced in
the 1921 legislature, which pro
hibits the closing of specifications to
all but certain patented form of
road pavements. Mr. Roberts dis
cussed his measure. Senate 20, in
troduced a week ago. It requires
that iu all specifications provision
must be made for two or more rec
ognized pavement surfacings on a
concrete base.
Superintendent of Public Work
Charles H. Munson, of Morris coun
ty, presented the case for the op
ponents of these two bills. lie con
tended that Roberts’ bill would shut
out all uupatented materials and
that the question of the type of
pavement should be left to the
county boards of freeholders to de
cide after consulting with their ex
pert county engineers,) as they arc
responsible for the spending of the
people’s money iti the different
counties on roads. With respect to
the Parry bill, Mr. Munson declared:
"It i designed to plaoe patented
pavements at a distinct disadvant
age in all lettings by requiring that
they shall compete with unpatented
types and that the lowest hid shall
he accepted Irrespective of type.
This is fundamentally wrong. Selec
tion of construction should be en
tirely as engineering matter, and
tlie power to make such selection
should alone be in the hands of the
governing board with the advice of
its engineers.
“This bill would make price tlie
rnly consideration in the selection
of type which is basically wrong, as
workmanshp. durability and adapt
rtdlity of construction should be the
features governing selectb n of type.
I’rice should only be considered as
one element in such determination."
Senators Parry and Roberts reit
erated the contentions made before
against closed specifications, name
ly. that they stifle competition and
perml certain paving interests to
fasten themselves upon the taxpay
ers through costly types of r/ id sur
facing.
Assemblyman Artnur in. ner»»n,
of Union county, explained to the
Republican women his resolution
providing for a referendum on the
proposed $10,000,000 bond issue to
finance the completion <>' the state
highway system. He declared it
would mean no additional tax on
the people over that of the present
cne mill on the dollar, which is be
ing collected under the Edge Act of
11)17 for road building purposes. This
tax is to be continued to pay for the
bonds, he explained. Up to June,
19 20, but thirty miles of the system
had ber-n built, due to war, high
costs of construction and govern
ment restriction. Mr. Pierson said.
At the present time the record of
completed mileage is 149 a nr a frac
tion miles, he stated, under the
direction of the State Highway Com
mission, and G2 and a fraction miles
built by counties under tlio reim
bursement plan. While he did not
entirely favor the latter method of
completing the system, Mr. Pierson
i said the state would have to go
ahead with it now inasmuch as R
had contracted with the counties for
further work under this arrange
ment. Uunder the bond issue pro
gran New Jersey will be able at the
end of five years to point with pride
to n splendid system of roads.
Republican House Leader Evans,
of Passaic, was warmly received by
[ the forum when he made a vigorous
plea for support for the bill to pro
hibit work at night by women in
| factories. It prohibits their employ
ment between the hours of 10 at
I night and G the next morning.
Mrs. Feickert. the organization’s
leader and moving spirit, who pre
sided, read a telegram from Mrs.
Lewis S. Thon son, of Mon
mouth county, who was unable to at
tend. Mrs. Feickert announced that
the work of organizing branches of
Mm club is being pushed.

WHAT IS THE
SUCTION PUMP?
AS tlie music roll passes i
over the tracker bar,
various particles of paper,
dust, etc., are drawn into the
small holes by the suction.
Eventually the valves be
come clogged, which is suf
ficient to prevent the instru
ment from playing properly
The Suction Pump—an ex
clusive Lauter attachment—
overcomes this condition. F5y
placing the mouth of the
pump over the small holes all
the foreign matter that may
be lodged in the valves or
tracker bar is drawn out,
leaving the mechanism clean
for efficient operation.
