BR1SSMAN CASE
DEVELOPESREEL
COMEDYFEATURES
Much Like Movie Funny of
the 'Old Home Town'—
Case Is Transferred From
Justice Court to Barber
Shop and From There to
Reporter's Office.
INJUNCTION HALTS HEARING
Rlsmnrek, l*b. 18.— Judge
Nu-"ssle of the. fourth district
bench issued ail Injunction to
day restraining further action in
the justice court oif Bismarck a
gainsl a representative of the
TSIsliop, Brissman Company. The
permanency of the injunction
will he argued on February 21.'
Attorneys for the company re
fuse to plead in justice court,,
(b uying' the jurisdiction of that
court.
Immediate trial was ordered
hy the just ice and the injunction
stopped the prOeeedings/-
Bismarck, N. D., Feb. 18.—-Spec
ial--- The Brissman case has develop
ed its humorous side here.
Herman G. Brissman, of Bishop,
Brissman and company, was charged
with having violated the state ac
countancy law. Justice Casselman
sent the case to Justice George Do
lan, whose barber shop is across the
street ,for him, on change of venue
•—the law requiring the case to be
sent to the nearest, justice^
However,, Justice Casselman dis
covered, or was apprised later, that
he had not known that Richard H.
Thisthlethwaite, former statistician
in the office of Commissioner of Ag
riculture and Labor and now report
er for the Fargo Courier-News, had
been a justice of the peace all a
long and had an office right down the
hall a couple of doors in the same
building. So the case was sent to
Justice Thistlethwaite's court.
Then Joseph Coghlan, who prefer
red the first charges against Briss
man, came back and filed two more
complaints on which warrants were
issued by Justice Thistlethwaite,
who remarked that he would hear
the cases as soon as his office was
in readiness and the furniture install
ed. Both complaints charged Mr.
Brissman with violating the false ad
vertising law, but did not specify the
exiact nature of the offense. Nor was
Mr. Brissman apprised, except that
he was informed in the complaint
one violation was in 1019 and anoth
er in 1921.
He appeared before Justice This
tlethwaite, who for the time being
ceased to be reporter for the Courier
News and a nominal bond was fixed.
Justice Wants to Fight
The proceedings also were enliv
ened when Justice Casselman, on
transferring the first case to Jus
tice Thistlethwaite's court, became
angered at a remark of Attorney Ed
ward Cox, for Brissman. The aged
Justice threatened to thrash Cox but
Secretary of State Thomas Hall
stepped in. The Justice then in
formed Mr. Cox, who is a young,
husky man, that he would meet him
outside. Justice Casselman was
plainly angry as he left his office
late in the evening and walked down
the street^ cane in hand.
THIRTY-EIGHT DIE
IN ROMA FALL
U. S. BEGINS PROBE
Continued from Page 1.
Charred Beyond Recognition
The ship left no passenger list be
hind her when she set out for a brief
run from Langley. She is known to
have carried many officers and men
as passengers, however, in addition
to her operating crew. As she rose
from the Held, her commander leaned
out to signal that he had forty-four
persons aboard. It is believed he
did not include one civilian on the
ship and that she actually carried 45.
Officers who knew personally many
of the officers and enlisted men, were
unable to identify a single one of the
victims so badly charred was each—
virtually cooked to death in the mass
of wreckage when the explosion and
flames encompassed them.
Only those in the forward part of
operating compartment of the ship
had a chance for their^lives. Several
were injured severely by jumping,
but three came out practically un
hurt and were discharged from the
hospital within a few hours after the
disaster.
Lieutenant Burt, who with Cap
tain Reed, was the principal pilot of
the Roma, was one of these. A civ
ilian, Ray Hurley, also escaped un
hurt. as did Master Sergeant Reek.
Of the 45 men who left the Lang
ley field air station, only 11 are
known to have survived the accident.
Some of these more dead than alive,
lay on their cots at the United States
public health service hospital with
biVrned and brokeh limbs ^swathed in
bandages. Some of their faces
smeared with cream to relievo them
of their intense Buffering while oth
ers lay asleep or unconscious with
only their ^closed eyeB visible. All
who were able to talk, were suffering
from shock.
Officers Are Cool Headed
Albert Florres, who was in the ob
server's pit on. top .of the bag, said:
"I felt the ship tilt up from the back
and start to slide down. I tried to
go back down inside but then I de
cided to come out forward again.
By that time We hit the ground and
I was thrown out on the ground.'*
Florres was burned
i
about 'the
hands and Is suffering fiM Itoock.
Major J. D. Reardon, who was in
the control cabin at the time of the
accident, said that the work of the
officers .in charge was .excellent.
-r,:
I
J'
THE
.WEEKLY ALERT
Lieutenant Burt and Captain Daje
Mabry were at their wheels," the
major said, "the ship gave a duck
and I saw Lieutenant Burt pull with
all his might on the elevation lever.
He yelled out, 'She won't respond,'
and then 'cut the motors.' One }y
one I heard the motors shut oft and
then we struck. If the motors had
not been shut off we would have hit
the ground much harder."
He said frfe had not seen any flames.
Hurley, a civilian and engine ex
pert, suffered a slight sprain of one
arm and burns about the hand. The
trip was Hurley's first flight. "It was
the first time I had even been up,"
he said, "and when the Roma started
to swing, I didn't know anything was
wrong. I thought she was acting all
right. I didn't know different. It
was not until the ship hit the ground
that I realized she was wrecked. She
was sailing along smoothly and was
coming straight from the Langley
field. We were up only a short time
when we fell."
Roma Cost $200,000
The airship Roma was an Italian
built craft purchased by the United
States government from Italy early
in 1921 for $200,000. She was, it
was believed, the largest semi-rigid
aircraft in the world. The cost of
duplicating, it was said by war de
partment, at the time of her pur
chase, would probably be $1,250,000.
The airship was of 1,200,000 cu
bic feet capacity, 410 feet long, 82
feet wide and 88V& feet high. She
was originally equipped with six 12
cylinder engines of 400 horsepower
each, giving/an estimated speed of
80 miles an hour and a cruising Rad
ius at full speed of 3,300 miles.
These engines, however, were replac
ed with Liberty motors after the air
ship was brot to the United States.
An American crew was sent to
Rome to make tests of the Roma in
Italy and after these had been com
pleted the aircraft was dismantled
and shipped to this country, reaching
here last summer. She was taken in
her dismantled shape to Langley
eld in Virginia and was assembled
there during the fall and by Novem
ber was ready for her trial flight
which took place from Langley field
on November 15. Late in December
she made a flight to Washington
during a storm and was then christ
ened and put into commission. Re
cently she was being groomed for a
flight intended to take in the whole
of the United States.
Third Mishap in 12 Months
New York, Feb. 21.—The dirigi
ble Roma, which blew up today over
Hampton Roads, was the third big

On January 1, 1921, the R-34,
which flew from l^pgland to Long
Island and back in the summer, of
1919,: the first airship to cross the
Atlantic, was wrecked in a gale while
tethered outside her airdrome in
Howden, England.
.Before the ZR-2 disaster,-the'great
est number killed In an airship ac
cident in peace times was 28, the toll
of the explosion of the German Zep-.
pelin'L-2 over the Johannisthal aer
odrome on October 17, 1913.

cidents. They were Zeppelins I. II,
III, and VI, and Deutschlands I and
II.
The Germans lost sixty-six of the

MERCHANTS IN MINN.
TOWN TAKE CORN IN
TRADE FROM FARMERS
(By the Associated Press)
Madelia, Minn1. Feb. 21.— Mer
chants of Madelia and farmers of the
surrounding country have been brot
together as the result of the accept
ance of corn as cash in the pur
chase of merchandise or settlement Of
accounts.
In a two-month period just ended
the merchants bought more than 35,
000 bushels of corn at approximate
ly 30 cents a bushel, or a total of
$10,500, which was "new money"
released in the community and re
lieved the financial pressure on mer
chants to a certain extent.
One of the direct results of th§ ex
periment, which was copied in many
other towns as "The Madelia Plan",
was the establishment here a few
weeks ago of the Community Club,
organized to foster the fullest spir
it of co-operation between the town
and country folk.
When the market for the farmer's
crops, especially corn, started on
the downward trend, and in some
communities corn was sold as fuel or
burnt for fuel by the farmers, P.
Lebak, a Madelia business man, con
ceived the idea of accepting corn
from the farmers at 10 cents a hush
el above the local market price.
The rules of the plan, which were
received with enthusiasm by the far
mers when they saw there were no
"strings" attached to it, were as fol
lows:
1.—Any farmer was allowed to
bring in 100 bushels of corn to any
merchant tnd receive his pay in mer
chandise or pay on account.
2—Merchants co-operating agreed
to take a given amount of corn on
these terms, but had the privilege of
taking an additional quota from any
farmer owing them a. bill.
3—During the two-montli period,
the merchants agreed to pay a pre
mium of 10 cents a bushel over the
local market with a minimum of 40
cents a bushel on shelled corn and
35 cents for corn on the ear, in trade
or on account, the corn to be hauled
to the local elevators and weighed in,
graded and turned over to the rep
resentative of the merchants, who in
turn issued a merchandise check,
stating whut store it was drawn on
and in wh'at amount.
Th merchants were 'well satisfied
with the results. The actual percent
age of loss by tliia system of corn
buying was 26.7 per cent, as the mer
chants necessarily had to market the
corn and accept the consequent loss
due to the premium they gave the
farmers.
VETERANS OF MARNE,
ANCIENT TAXICABS
OF PARIS RETIRED
(By the Associated Press)
Paris, Feb. 3.—The veterans of
the Marne, those ramshackled brok
en-down taxicabs which every Amer
ican visitor to Paris has had to dodge
on the Paris boulevards, have been
permanently retired and replaced by
3,200 modern comfortable taxicabs.
The forbidding appearance of the
old "cruisers" seemed to have an ill
effect on the drivers and hope is ex
pressed by many Parisians that the
new machines would also mark the
passing of the disreputable chauf
feurs who are considered as ill-man
nered 'as their machines fire old.
The taxicabs were placed in ser
vice in 1905. In 1914 ,they were
mobilized by General Gallieni, then
Military Governor of Paris who
crowded his army into them and rush
ed them to the battle of the Marne
where they aided in the success of
the famous flanking movement that,
saved Paris and defeated the Ger
mans
These hardy pioneers of the streets
have been dashing about Paris for
17 years.
