Skeleton Keys, Burglar Tools, Large Quantities of Jewels and Other Evi dence of Work and Life of Suspect Found In His Rooms—Girl Willing to Nlarry Betrayer. By Associated Press. Baltimore, Md., Nov. 2.—The police of this city believe they have in cus tody a genuine "Raffles" in the person of Thomas N. Barnette, alias Kemp of Toronto, Ont., who is held here on a charge of having robbed the resi dence of Howard Kellogg of Buffalo, September 9. Barnette who is 23 years old, told the detectives that he made it a rule to wear full dress whenever he made his burglarier expeditions, so that, if discovered he might reasonably claim to have accidentally entered the prem ises. On his person and in the room where he had been living, the police found a large quantity of jewelery and other plunder, electric flashlights, skel eton keys and everything else that goes to make up a complete burglar's kit. Also in custody is Miss Florence Tomlinson, aged 18 years, who is said to be the daughter of a railroad offi cial living in Toronto. Miss Tomlin son and Barnette eloped from Toronto and until today she believed that they had been legally married in New York state. That this had been a mock marriage developed after Barnette's arrest when he begged that a minister be sent for to marry him to the girl. She was willing that this be done until Barnette confessed, so the police say, to a number of burglaries. Miss Tomlinson's father has been notified of his daughter's plight.

Big Atlanta Meet Will Attract Much Attention On Account of Entries and Large Size of Purses—Three Days of Sensational Racing Is Promised to the Fans. By Associated Press. Atlanta, Ga., Nov. 2.—For over three hours this afternoon Barney Oldfield participated in a legal contest for the right to enter tomorrow's automobile meet here, and lost. Attorneys for the American Auto mobile association held that instead of an' injunction to force the local racing association to allow him to race in defiance of his disqualification, Oldfield should have sought a manda mus to secure reinstatement Oldfield's attorneys brought suit for $20,000 damages against the associa tion and one for $5,000 against the Atlanta Automobile association, along with injunction proceedings. Old fields attorneys claimed that he had been disqualified without a hearing, and that the disqualification of his 200 horse power Benz racer amounted to confiscation of property. Attorneys argued that his race with Jack John son, which caused his disqualification, was justifiable because it would tend to discourage Johnson from future competition with white sportsmen. The opposing counsel replied that Oldfield's disbarment was automatic under the rules he, himseff -Jiad sign ed, both against himself and his car. The case, they said, was an attempt by Oldfield to show that he is bigger than the American Automobile assoc iation. Judge Bell ruled that he had no jurisdiction. The three days' racing begins to morrow on the Atlanta speedway, with eight events ranging from time trials to a 100 mile race for a trophy and cash prize of $10,000. ptenmrc Pfltlt trilnmc.

E. Packard has been its editor, the political news and editorials of the Fargo Daily News have been made up of falsehood, misrepresentation, villification and personal abuse. The character of the reports that have gone out from Bismarck, most of which emenated from the private office of the governor of this state and were undoubtedly inspired by P. E. Byrne, private secretary to the governor, have been of such a character as to make an honest man doubt the truthfulness of any statement in the News under a Bismarck date line. In its issue of the 2nd of November, the News attempts to disprove the statement that Governor Burke had been building up a personal political machine in this state. The Publicity Bureau of the Republican Headquarters some two weeks ago sent out a "LIST OF THE MEN WHO ARE NOW HOLDING OFFICE UNDER GOVERNOR BURKE'S ADMINISTRATION." The News publishes an alleged list of all the officers the governor has appointed and misstates the political affiliation of these appointees in many glaring instances. This list published by the News also goes to prove that the governor is weeding out republicans as rapidly as he dares and that two years more of his kind of non-partisanship would leave the state with no republican appointive officers whatever. Here are a few of the men the News credits as being republicans, and who were accredited as democrats in the list sent out from the Publicity Bureau of the Republican Headquarters: George E. Wallace, Wahpeton member of board of School of Science. Mr. Wallace In 1904 and 1906, ran for county judge on the democratic ticket in Richland county, and is at the present time sec retary of the democratic central committee for Richland county, and is out on the stump talking for Gov. Burke and the whole democratic ticket. J. B. Wagner, Lidgerwood member of the board of School of Science. Mr. Wagner ran for the leg islature on the democratic ticket from the 37th district in 1898 and 1902. He also ran for clerk of the district court oh the democratic ticket in 1906, and called for a democratic ballot at the primary election this year, and at the present time is a democratic precinct committeeman for Lidgerwood. C. I. Chrlstianson, of Park River, member of the board of the Institution for Feeble Minded, was a county commissioner~of Walsh county for several years, and was elected as a democrat. He was a dem ocratic member of the house of representatives from the Third district in 1908, and is the nominee of the democratic party in this campaign for the same position. H. C. Thompson, of Bowesmont member of the board of School for the Blind. He was a democratic county commissioner from Pembina county, has been a candidate for county auditor of Pembina county, as a democrat, and is now and has been ever since he came to Pembina county a regular democrat. He is personally known to the writer as one of the kind of democrats who always vote the ticket straight. John Childerhose, of St Thomas member of the board of School for the Blind, resided in the same township with the writer for over twenty-five years. He is now and always has been a democrat. He attended democratic conventions regularly and generally served as a democratic judge of his precinct. E. D. Washburn of- Hope, member of Grain Commission, is a democrat, and was the democratic nom inee for state senator from the 16th district in 1906, and is the democratic nominee for state senator in this campaign from said district. Marion Grange, Sheldon, member of board of Soldier's Home, is an old line democrat. A. R. McKay, Bottineau, member board of School of Forestry, is a democrat. Alfred C. Fritz, Minot, member of the board of the Normal School at Valley City, is a democrat. E. R. Bronson, Williston, member of the board for the Normal School at Valley City, is a democrat. By some error in the original list, this bureau credited Arga Bowen, of Mohall, member of the board of Agricultural college, as a democrat, when he was in fact a republican. This was an oversight which we are glad to correct. The News article credits Dr. S. J. Hill of Fargo, member of Soldier's Home board, as an appoin tee of Governor Burke, when in fact he was made a member of the board by virtue of his office as commander of the G. A. R., according to section 1213 of the Revised Codes of 1905. The News article also gives a number of appointments to boards of examiners such as the board of Pharmacy, which board under the provisions of section 303 of the Revised Codes of 1905, is appointed by the governor, but "UPON RECOMMENDATION OF THE STATE PHARMACEUTICAL ASSOC IATION." This News article shows that while the governor did appoint republicans to office in some rare in stances, he soon regretted his act,• and replaced the following gentlemen by democrats: Jas. Radford, Warren N. D. Nelson, Mayville W. D. Best, Walhalla Gunder Olson, Grafton A. J. F. Voigt, Leeds Chas. F. Studness, Churches Ferry Jacob L. Richmond, Halsey S. Curry, Colgate and Albert Roberts, Devils Lake. The only thing the News article proves is that Gov. Burke is rapidly eliminating the fer republl cans who are in office, and that the News and its Bismarck correspondent don't know how tell the truth.

Among the witnesses for the state were three state representatives, who confessed on the stand to being paid $1,000 ealh for their votes for Lori mer. Immediately the case went against him, Wayman began an investigation of numerous rumors cqneerning at tempts at tampering with the venire men. A week ago he secured a clew which led to McCutchen. The latter, and Stacy, it is said, disgruntled at the small sum which they say they received, resolved to tell their stories. Stacy, in particular, was angry.

Several Women Arrested But Most of Them are Released After Being Taken to Police Stations—Police Is sue Special Orders and Look For More Trouble Within 24 Hours. By Associated Press. Chicago, 111., Nov. 2.—Grim specters of the days of the hay market riot haunted Chicago's street for a brief time late this afternoon when Inspec tor S. K. Healy and a squad of sixty policemen with drawn revolvers charged several thousand striking garment workers who were rioting on the west side. One policeman was stabbed, fifteen rioters were seriously injured and twenty-five strikers and sympathizers were arrested during a brisk fight which threatened to get beyond con trol of the police. This, the most serious outbreak that has occurred since the inception of the strike of the garment workers, occurred at the plant of A. Lott and company. Before the police arrived the strikers had broken all the windows in the large building occupied by the clothing man ufacturers, had driven the strike breakers out and carried a large num ber of sewing machines into the streets where the machines were de stroyed. The strikers and their followers put up a desperate fight for a time. Many of their number were knocked down by clubbed revolvers of the police, and not. a few were trampled upon in the fighting which followed. Bleeding heads and faces were numerous and a number of persons suffered more serious injuries. A number of women were arrested but most of these were released afetr they had been taken to police stations. As a result of today's developments in the strike situation Chief o. Police Steward tonight ordered conference of his inspectors and issued a special set of emergency orders to inspectors, captains and lieutenants in various po lice districts where riots have oc curred.
