ARB I'RBPAREI) Lincoln, Neb., Feb. 6. —Unmoved by the ridicule of members of the Seventh Day Adventist church, 12 followers of Mrs. Margaret RowCn, Hollywood, California, self-styled sceress, today at College View, a Lincoln suburb, were calmly await ing the millennium, which they be lieve will come at midnight tonight, when Christ appearing as a cloud in the sky will begin “Seven days journey to earth” gathering along the way the Saints who are to ac company him. Today, as yesterday, most cult members went about their daily work, although some are spending their time fasting and praying. Their will he no pompous preparations. %nade for the coming of the end, Mrs. Joe Ga.imel, leader of the group, said. Mrs. Oammel said she did not ex pect the earth to be swept away to its doom “in the twinkling of an eye” hut declared that midnight would mark the beginning of the end. It will take seven days, she said, for complete destruction. “At first,” Mrs. Gammel related, “Christ appearing as a cloud in the sky* no larger than a man’s hand, wifi begin his trip from Heaven to earth. It will require seven days for him to reach us, for he has stops to make on the way. One of these stops will be on a planet, not now visible to any earthly person. That i.v the planet nearest heaven. There arrangements will be made to feed those Saints whom Christ brings back to earth. The journey back will also take seven days.” Cult members’ homes are virtually stripped of furniture, onlV the bare necessities remaining, they having sold most everything to settle their worldly debts and be prepared for their accession.

Your Income Tax This is one of a scries of articles explaining the in come tax to the laymen, ft has been (prepared in view of recent changes in the income tax law. BY It, A. CONKEY Tax Consultant There arc two separate and dis tinct kinds of tax, the “normal tax" and the “surtax." Certain items of income are subject to the surtax only and certain exemptions from normal taxes are allowed. The sur tax is computed upon the total net income without any deduction for credits or exemptions, and for the purpose of computing the normal tax only, there is allowed the fol lowing credits: | 1. Dividends received from do mestic corporations, as these are subject to the surtax only; 2. Dividends received from for eign corporations deriving more than 50 per cent of their gross income from sources within the United States; 3. Any amount of interest upon obligations of the United States which is included in gross income. As previously explained all interest upon obligations of the United States is free the normal tax, but if amounts in excess of exemptions al lowed by. law are held the interest upon such excess becomes subject j to the surtax, and must be included in grpsa income:.. 4. In the case of income received from a partnership or fiduciary, the taxpayer is entitled to the credits stated in subdivisions 1, 2 and 2 above, to the extent of his propor tionate share of such dividends or interest received by the partnership fiduciary; 5. SIOOO in case of a single per son, or $2500. in case of the head of a family or a married person living with husband or wife. If married persons file separate returns the per sonal exemption of s2otO may be di vided in any proportion desired; i 6. S4OO fqr each dependent (other than husband or wife) under 18 years of age, or incapable of self support because mentally or physi cally defective. The credit for de pendents is determined by the status of the taxpayer on the last day of his taxable year. Where the status of a taxpayer changes from that of a single person to a married person or the head of a family, or vice versu, during the taxable year, the, personal exemp tion allowed is the sum of (a) an amount which bears the same ratio to SIOOO as the number of months during which he was single bears to 12 months, plus (b) an amount which bears the same ratio to $2500 as the number of months during which he was married or the /head of a fam ily bears to 12 months. A fractional part of a month is disregarded, ex cept where it amounts to more than half a month,, in which case it is considered one month. Thus a single man who marries on June 20 Would be entitled to per sonal exemption of 6-12 or SIOOO or S6OO, plus 6-12 of $2600 or $1250, a total of $1760. The ppgponal exemption and credit for’ dependents in the case of an in dividual who, dies during the taxable fakr are determined by his status at the time of his death; the surviving spouse, If any, also is entitled to the full, credits according to his or her status at the close of the taxable mr. HUNT SLAYERS OF 2 GIRLS Mother Reported to Have Formerly Lived Near Bismarck Los Angeles, Feb. 6.—Finding of the shoe lost from the foot of little Njna Martin, 8, whose body, with that of her sister, May, 12, was dis covered slain in a grave on Angelus Mesa Wednesday, lent new impetus to the tracking of the person or per sons responsible for the kidnaping, maltreating and killing of the sis ters. That the girls, who disappeared from their home last August were held prisoner for some time, while a countrywide search was in pro gress and then later murdered and buried was the theory that was gain ing ground with the officers work ing on the case. It was pointed out that searching parties last summer traverse! sev eral times the territory where the bodies were uncovered. This, officers declared, would in dicate that the bodies were not there at that time, 'hut had been carried there later. The shoe missing from Nina’s foot .was discovered yester day 40 feet away from the grave. W. L. Chapman, detective, declared hm belief that the crime showed every evidence of having been com mitted by a foreigner. Mr. and Mrs. Eddie Martin, par ents of the two girls whose bodies were found nfcar Los Angeles after disappearing from their home last August, came originally from Girard, Minn., near Otter Tail lake. Mrs." Martin (now Mrs. Paul Buus) obtained a divorce from Mr. Martin in 1917 on grounds of desertion. She lived with her babies, May and Nina, at Fergus Falls for a time after the divorce and then lived for a while near Bismarck. Thence she moved to Los Angeles, according to the in formation frotn Fergus Falls. Mr. Martin served overseas during the war.

Under the plan the legislature would be composed of 32 Senators and 67 Representatives. Some of those sponsoring the plan declare that if the redistricting plan is not enacted it will be submitted to the people as an initiated measure. While Independents who have seen it, say that it is designed to give con trol to the League, this is denied by the Nonpartisans. It is declared by Herman Hardt of Napoleon, who ori ginated the plan, that it would re district the state and give the west ern part the recognition it deserves on a basis of population. There would be 32 legislative dis tricts, the division to be as follows: No. 1. Pembina county, one Sena ator, two representatives. No. 2, Walsh county, one senator, two representatives. No. 3, Grand Forks county, one senator, three representative*. No. 4, Steele and Trail counties, one senator, two representatives. No. 0, Cass county, outside Fargo, one senator, two representatives.

HOUSE FAYORS HEAR TERMS : FOR COUNTIES Opposed, However, to Amend ing Constitution Provid ing 4-Year State Terms OTHER HOUSE ACTION Freight Rate Bill Is Advanced Toward Passage in The House Steps were taken toward submis sion of two constitutional amend ments, in the North Dakota legisla ture, yesterday afternoon, and one proposal for submission of an amend ment to the voters was defeated. The House approved, in committee of the whole, a resolution for an amendment providing four-year terms for county officials instead of two year terms, and defeated a re solution for four-year terms for state officials. The Senate, without objection, passed the Ettcstad reso lution providing for submission of a constitutional amendment providing six-year terms for members of ihe hoard of railroad commissioners. Opposition to making state offi cials’ terms four years instead of two arose largely from the fact that national and state representatives still would he elected every two years, 'and an election would be ne cessary. The Senate defeated another con stitutional amendment resolution of fered by Senator Babcock, removing the constitutional restriction of the four-year limit on the office of state treasurer, while the House, before it killed the state officials amend ment, had removed this restriction in the resolution. In approving House Bill No. 134, the four-year term for county offi cials’ measure, the legislature re moved a limitation of one term for sheriff and treasurer carried in the resolution. The resolution regarding state officers also was amended be fore finally being killed on motion of Representative Hardy of Slope county, with Rep. Vogel, Nonparti san floor leader, supporting it. Under the resolution approved, people would vote at the next elec tion on providing county officials shall have four-year terms. Railroad Bill The House, in committee of the whole, approved House Bill No. 84, making possible « change in railroad freight rate making in the state, and House Bill No. 43, appropriating $66,- 320 to operate the Bottineau Forestry Normal school, now closed, for two years. Consideration of Senate Bills Nos. 61 and 62, the cigarette bills, went over a legislative day, on mo tion, because Senate amendments had not been printed in the Senate Journal. House Bill No. 84 provides that the railroad commission may order railroads to charge various freight rates between the same distances, within the state. It was amended to provide that representatives of rail roads or any community affected might have a hearing. Rep. Twichell, Cass county, opposing the measure, declared that for example the rail road commission could order in a rate of one cent a pound on some commodity from Fargo to Dickinson. He declared that if the rate was low ered in one place, under the system of rate-making, it would hav| to be raised another place. He also de clared that the railroad commission could put out of business any big industry or community under the terms of the bill. Rep. Vogel, speaking for the bill, declared he was willing to trust the railroad commission and public opin ion. The measure was approved and went on the calendar. . Insurance Bill Among the bills passed in the House was House Bill No. 87, recom mended by the insurance department, which would prevent an insurance company from cfncelling agency con tracts because the agent did busi ness with a company belonging to a rival organization of insurance com panies. Senate Bill No. 57, providing ap pointment of a commission to confer with commissioners of other states on Red River flood control, and Sen ate Bill No. 70, providing a commis sion to confer with commissioners of Minnesota and South Dakota, on the question of interstate bridges, were passed with no opposition. Among the measures killed in the House was Rep. Burkhart’s bill to appropriate $50,000 to aid in drilling of oil wells, to find out if North Dakota has oil. Another, which would remove the Hebron lignite experimen tal station to Grand Forks, also was defeated. VOTE AGAINST CORN SHOW BILL The house appropriations commit tee last night voted to kill a bill pro viding for state recognition and a SI,OOO bienniel appropriation for the North Dakota State Corn Show at Bismarck. \ The committee also voted against a proposal to make an appropriation of $65,000 for an auditorium at the School. WORKERS PUSH SINKING OF SHAFT IN HOPE OF REACHING COLLINS IN KENTUCKY CAVE; MAY HAVE DIED GETS MILLIONS When Texas veterdns of the World War feel that Uncle Sam owes them something Colonel N. Lapowski of the El Paso legion sees that they get it. He has handled 11,467 ver erjins’ cases and has touched Uncle Sam for $1,504,834. He makes no charge for his services although a fee of 20 per cent of a claim is his if he wished to claim it. COLLINS FIANCEE LONELY WATCHER FROM HILL TOP Louisville, Ky., Feb. 6. (By the A. P.) —A solitary figure stood in tbe glow of a hill-top camp fire silently watching the shaft being sunk inch by inch to Floyd Collins. The light reflection revealed, “two streams of tears on the watchers’ face but they were never brushed away,” says a copyright story to the Courier-Jour nal from Cave City today. “This silent observer was Alma Clark, 22, living eight miles from Cave City, come to mourn on what was to have been her wedding day and for him who was to have been her husband. Alone she stood as scores of workmen exerted them selves to force a way through rock and earth into the cavern. “Around her many were talking, calling to one another and some were laughing. They didn’t know, they didn’t even see this figure, nor did she seem to see them. She held her eyes on the new made shaft. She turned, finally, and in a moment was lost in the darkness.” “Her tears, her expression and her walk told plainly that her hopes were no more, that she feels the cave which Floyd Collins set out to ex plore will not release its grip until he dies. “Floyd Collins and Miss Alma Clark were to have eloped today but only a few of their friends knew their secret. It was said that ob jections to the marriage had bpen made and that, the elopement was planned as a means of overcoming it, and this may be why Floyd Collins wouldn’t give up his fight for life. It may explain why Collins kept courage when rescuers and friends were downcust. It may reveal how Collins endured torture with a smile at times through six days in the grip of a stone in the cave and it may show the power that kept alive that spark of faith he cherished.” U. S. QUITS OPIUM PARLEY Coolidge O. K.’s Withdrawal of U. S. Chairman Geneva, Feb. fi.—The American delegation has withdrawn from the international opium conference. Re presentative Porter and his asso ciates plan to leave Geneva tonight and to sail for home next Thursday on the steamship President Harding. Mr. Porter today informed the con ference that “despite the more than two months discussions and repeated adjournments it was clear that the purpose for which the conference was called could not be accomplish ed.” AUTHORIZED BY COOLIDGE Washington, Feb. 6.—(By the A. P.) —Withdrawal of the American delegation from the Geneva opium conference was authorized by Presi dent Cofolidge. The President advised Chairman Porter of the American delegation that he might, at his discretion, withdraw from the conference, since it appears that no agreement would be reached* which would be satisfac tory to the American delegates. Comment on the withdrawal was withheld in absence of detailed re ports from Chairman Porter. LENIENCY IS RECOMMENDED Grand Forks, N. D., Feb. 6.-—Leni ency was recommended in the case of Harold Hanson, convicted in dis trict court here of abandonment of hit two minor children. Probably Succumbs to Suffo cation, Is Crushed to Death or Has Died of Pneumonia, But Workers Continue to Sink Shaft From Above in an Effort to Reach En tombed Man Cave City, Ky., Feb. 6. All hope of reaching him through the natural passage gone, workers were making a new entrance to Sand Cave in an attempt to reach Floyd Collins, en tombed since last Friday morning. A long day of digging was ahead of them and whether Collins was dead or alive none has known def initely, since a cave-in Wednesday night blocked the passage in which he has been lying, pinioned by one foot, for one week. The general belief was that he has succumbed, by being crushed to death or by suffocation, or by pneu monia. Radio Used Early today, however, radio was resorted to in hope the cave could give up its secret. A two stage audio frequency amplifier was con nected in the lighting circuit lead ing into the cave and known to he intact. The lights were turned off and with headsets clamped to their ears, the experimenters listened for any sign that might be interpreted as coming from Collins. After the test men said they heard distinct sounds, believed by them to have been caused by the jarring of the carbon filaments in the electric light bulb fastened about Collins’ neck. It was thought, that if alive, Col lins had probably moved when the light went out, thus shaking the filaments. On the other hand, it was pointed out that other noises might have caused the sound heard in the head sets. Thus, nothing definite was determined. The work on the new shaft was begun yesterday and early today a hole 10 feet deep had been made. The work was slowed up by the nec essity of timbering the shaft, as it deepened. It has been estimated that Collins is lying 65 feet below the surface. Estimates as to the time it will take to sink the shaft, vary from 24 to 72 hours. Light Burns That the light bulb, placed around Collins’ neck Wed nesday is still burning is taken as an indication that the cave-in had not reached the prisoner’s head. Any strong pressure would crush the globe and thus break the circuit, it was pointed out. Geologists today expressed the opinion that Collins is under two large boulders which are believed to be lying against each other, forming the protective arch. SWINDLER IS GIVEN PRISON New York. Fch. 6. —Moe Turman, 26 year old financier, who in 10 years pyramided a SIOO loan into obliga tions approximating $2,000,000, was tions approximating $2,000,000, was to 10 years in Sing Sing prison. He had pleaded guilty to a second de gree forgery indictment. Lincoln Denies Any Murder Geneva, 111., Feb. 6.—Warren Lin coln, the lawyer-florist of Aurora, took the witness stand recently in the trial for the murder of his wife, Lina, and her brother, Byron Shoup, and denied the confession he once made that he killed the two January 10, 1923, and burned their bodies in the furnace except for the heads, which he cut off and scaled in ce ment. Tho block containing the heads was found January 26, 1924, at a city dump in Aurora, after Lincoln had directed the search for the crypt. An astounded jury and court room l'stened to Lincoln’s denial “that he had 'ever killed anyone at any time or any place.” INCREASE IN TAX URGED If the cigarette repeal and license measures come up today, as expect ed, Rep. Twichell, Cass county, will offer an amendment increasing the stamp tax about one-half cent for an ordinary package, and making it 3 1-2 cents on an ordinary package of 20 cigarettes, he said. He estimat ed this would increase the expected revenue about SBO,OOO. Rev. C. L. Finwall of Fargo, who advanced a scheme to refer the bill to a vote of the people, arrived here yesterday, and is actively opposing its passage. CHURCH BECOMES THEATRE Berlin, Feb. 6. —One of the old churches of Berlin has been changed into a theatre, despite the protests of a number of worshippers of for mer years. The' church had been closed for some time beesuse of an insufficient congregation.. It has been agreed that nothing but plays of the highest literary excellence are to be presfnted. PRICE FIVE CENTS LEAGUERS MAY REJECT CHANGE NOW PROPOSED Likely to Stand Pat on Mill Manager Repeal as it Passed the House OTHER SUBJECTS UP Hail Insurance Zoning Also Brings About Division of Opinion Methods of financing the stale mill and elevator at Grand Forks and the Sorlic mill program today ap peared to form the crux of one of the largest problems before the leg islature in tbe final days of the ses sion, which passed the half-way mark yesterday. Nonpartisan members, after cau cuses last night and this morning, appeared to be ready to reject any proposal of Independents for amend ment of the House measure providing for repeal of the law providing a board of managers for the state mill and elevator and substituting the power of the Governor. They also do not agpee to plans proposed for financing of the mill by a direct appropriation of $300,000 or more. The proposal for an appropriation to provide working capital for the mill, by appropriation, in addition to Ihe power now existing to issue $500,000 milling bonds against wheat and flour, is not opposed by Inde pendents. but some Nonpartisans believe that the financing should come from the Bank of North Dako ta, which, they say, has ample funds to tide the mill over until it can be made u success. The Nonpartisans have been mak ing an effort to reduce appropria tions and they do not look with fav or on adding $300,000 more to them. There also is the possibility that appropriations may exceed the con stitutional tax limitation and force a raise in assessed valuation in the state. School Transportation Nonpartisans, in their caucus last night and this morning, also consid ered the subject of rural school transportation and the zoning of the state for making of hail insurance rates. The bill now pending in the house providing for a reduction in the school transportation furnished or amounts paid parents, will not be made the subjdlct of caucus action, it was decided. Hail insurance was discussed at a lengthy caucus thia morning, but no agreement wes reached on the question of zoning. The insurance committee had voted, 7 to 5, to support the plan of the state hail insurance department, but the report has not been submitted to the legislature. Terminal Market Bill In The second bill in the Sorlie mill program was introduced in the House of Representatives late yesterday, a bill providing for establishment of the state mill and elevator at Grand Forks as a public terminal grain ele vator. The bill was introduced by Rep. Vogel. The measure follows: “The state-owned mill and eleva tor, located at or near the city of Grand Forks, North Dakota, is hereby declared to be a public ter minal grain elevator and subject to regulation as such. “The Board of Railroad Commis sioners is hereby authorized, em powered and directed to determine and fix intrastate rates for the transportation of all grain and grain products moving to or from such Public Terminal Grain Elevator within the state of North Dakota as defined in thigjct. All such rates shall be just and reasonable, and made with a view of recognizing such Public Terminal Grain Elevator as a Public Terminal Market. No rates shall be established until after no tice has been given and an opportun ity afforded all interested parties to appear and be heard. “An emergency is hereby declared to exist and this act shall take ef fect and be in force from and after its passage and approval.” Would Paas It Unchanged In view of the attitude of many Nonpartisans, who believe that the bill providing for the repeal of the board of managers provision should pass unchanged, and are opposed to any appropriation for financing the state mill and elevator, Governor Sorlie indicated to callers this aft ernoon that he favored passage of the bill unchanged and the giving of a guarantee by the Independent ma jority on the Industrial Commission that adequate finances would be pro vided for the state elevator and mill at Grand Forks. The Governor has declared he is willing to assume all responsibility for the mill management, however, he wants to know that he will be able to finance the mill and get loans from the Bank of North Da kota. Independents have been un willing to make any blanket promise. In view of the action of the League caucus, in opposing amendment to the bill, it is probable that some new method of agreement will be sought with respect to financing the mill. William Lemke of Fargo, former Attorney General, arrived here teal night. Mr. Lemke was Is appear ftp Supreme Court today. *"
