I1UREKA SPRINGS. Ark., Sept. 27.. Two unidentified bank bandits were killed, another was fatally wounded and two others were shot this noon in a running battle with citizens after the live men had robbed the First National Rank , here of $2.MHK in money and Js'.M),(MM) in bonds. The money and bonds were re covered. All of the bandit gang, sir in number, were either killed or captured. II. II. Smith, cashier of the bank, sounded the alarm by stepping on a floor button which was connected with the burglar alarm. Alarmed citizens met the bandits with gun fire as they emerged from the bank with their loot, carrying before them the hank teller as a shield. The bandits returned the fire. Ernest Jordan, a jeweler, whose store adjoins the bank, received powder burns from the bandits' pistols, but killed one of the robbers, it is said. Firing from an upper story window of a store across " the street from the bank, Joe McKinney, attorney, killed another bandit. Constable J Rrittain shot ami mortally wounded an other. One robber who sat in an auto mobile in front of the bank attempted ' . to escape but was captured. Two of the men were shot as they ran down the street. Our banking rooms are equipped to give an alarm in case of a similar emergency.

That's u foregone conclusion. , What is more interesting is the kind of attack being made against him and the plat form on which Mr. Pjintexter is wekin;: re-election. . To begin with, critics say Poindexter is no longer a Progressive and this, of course, is a Progressive state. -Poindex ter answers that he is just as much a Progressive as he ever was but if bv the word "Progressive" is meant radical, J,!

MAKING BIG ATTACK ON VIVISECTION doesn't care to qualify.' In fact, Mr. Poindexter brings to his side the eminent Progressive, William E. Borah, senator from Idaho, who speaks here soon for the llepublican nominee. If Mr. Borah puts the stamp of approval on Mr. Poindex ter that is considered sufficient to still the outcry of "reactionary.'' But Mr. Poindexter has changed. The situation has changed conditions are far different today than they were in the Roosevelt days. The ultra-radical has had his fling here and the conserva tive elements have the -upper hand. Mr. PoindcxtMr hasn't hesitated to speak his mind plainly on the question of capital and labor, and he has spoken boldly in towns where lalnir was strong, lie is making much the same kind of campaign here that Senator . Pomerene. Democrat, is making in Ohio. All of whbh goes to snow mat neinier party nas much ot a monopoly on the conservative tendencies of the hour. Democrats Solid With Their Man. But it is significant that behind Mr. Poindexter are practically wings and factions of the Republican party. That is his strength and at the same time his weakness. Too many Republicans are too cocksure that Poindexter has an easy race and that they will not take the trou- Comitry Also Opposes Vaccination. WASHINGTON, Oct. ' !). American anti-vivisection forces have announced the reinforcing of their cause aimed at sxloption of laws abolishing the prac tice. Dr. Walter R. Hadwen, head of the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection, has been engaged and is making a speaking tour of the country opposing vivisection. Dr. Hadwen opened a tour of the western states last month iu Chicago, Minneaitolis, St. Paul and other cities, going then to California where he will aid the campaign for the passage of an unti-vivisection amendment to the state constitution. Sentiment is strong in California for such a measure, accord ing to officials of anti-vivisection soci eties, despite the defeat of i similar bill two years ago. After a month's work in California, Dr. Hadwen will visit eastern cities. Advocates of the practice who believe in its value to the human race and to the medical sciences, did not discuss the question publicly with him, it was raid, when he visited this country several years ago. He is making the present visit in answer to those proponents of vivisection who challenged his' right to speak for opponents. The doctor wan formerly a believer in vivisection, it was said, as well as We to vote. the Kepull;eun lenders . vaccination and inoculation. Dr Hml have more to fear on this score than' wen claims that 75 per cent of English any other, and while they don't like to children are unvaccinated, and attrib- say it they recognize that Representative C. C. Dill. Democrat, has a united party behind him and is something of a vote getter himself. Mr. Dill's position is unique. If his party associates were to confess they would conrede they wanted somelMdy else to run. They thought it would take . another type of candidate to leat Mr. Poindexter. They claim to be satisfied, however, and are counting on the natural protest vote and the cumu lative dissatisfaction to help them on election day. Mr. Dill, by the way. voted against American entrance into the war and later voted against conscrip tion. It is amusing to see this issu side-stepped. The Republicans are mind ful of th overwhelming victory won by both La Follette in Wisconsin on an out and out anti-war record and they want no such issue raised. The Democrats are just as happy to let it die also, so the chances are neither side will make a fuss about what hapi)ened in 1017. Will Not Repeat I Follette Move. The psychology of this is worthy of more than passing mention. Do Ameri cans really regret that America entered the war and saved the world from what seemed at the time a domination of Kai serismV The truth of the matter is the burdens of war are much more widely known and felt today than they were in 1017 and the fact is warmaking is more unpopular now than it ever was. As to whether in the circumstances that ex isted a member of congress was right in voting against war is quite another mat ter. The probabilities are that persecu tion of Americans who tried to exercise an indejiendent judgment, mistaken as it may have been, leads to the counter attack. The Republiacns have no in tention of making Mr. Dill a martyr and the Democrats are busily engaged in howing that out of I OS opportunities to support President Wilson on his war measures. Mr. Dill voted 100 times with the Democratic executive. So it would not seem as if either side cares to make, in Washington at least, a campaign on war issues and it is suspected here that if Mr. La Follette hadn't been singled out for such extensive criticism he might not have been so fortunate in the vote this year in his own state. Persecution or "what seemed to be persecution for independent judgment was really voted against in the La Follette case and the people here are not anxious to make the same mistake. Analyzing the situation throughout the state one finds that the radicals, Farmer-Labor voters and other elements, which Roosevelt termed the "lunatic fringe," are not organized: Had they combined they might have overturned Mr. Poindexter in the primaries. Mr. Poindexter received about 43 per cent of the Republican vote. This is more, to be sure, than he got six years ago, but it proves that nearly 4)0 per cent of the vote in the Republican party is scattered and might some day be combined to the distress of the regulars. The Non-Partisan league followers have preferred to work through a third ticket instead of through the regular parties, which ac counts for the difference between Wash ington and its neighboring states in the West. .... Little Antipathy to Japan. Senator Poindexter is making much of the conference on limitation of arma ments. It is true one hears less talk of war with Japan than ever before. The Washington conferem-e together with the demonstration of land and sea power in the recent war have removed the war bogey and the Pacific coast is doing a better business with Japan than anybody" dreamed, would be possible so soon after the European war. Business on the coast is better and in the state of Washington it is improving so flap idly that the Republican party will not suffer the fexpected ills of a period - of adversity-.-' " . . . . The, discussion here is whether Mr. Poindexter wfll win by 40.000 or whether his majority will be reduced to oO.OOO. The Republican campaign man agers will, be disappointed. -if thev get H0.000 that's what they say, but it will le,a pleasing moment for them none the .less :if 'the count shows 23,000. utes to that fact the lowest smallpox rate in the entire history of that country. MOTHER AND SIX KILLED, Trai Str?Jes Automobile Stalled On Tracli v--Fallier 'ami ' Son ' Escape. ' ' ' CHICAGO,' Oct. . Mrs. Harriet Harigot and six children were killed yes terday qear Wheeler, lnd., when an auto mobile ni which they were riding became stalled on the Pennsylvania tracks. The father, Rene Harigot. an auto mechanic; James Mishouan, a friend, ami Rene, jr.. had stepped out of the ear to push it off the tracks when a passenger train came around a curve and before the mother and six little ones could get out of the machine it was struck and all killed. The children ranged from two to 12 years. The family were moving from Chicago to a small .farm. good Stod The Highway Situation. (St. Albans Messenger.) The natural wonderment in a many minds will be, "Why did Hates have to wait so long lo learn that he was unable to eo-oierate with the other members of the state highway com mission?" This last minute discovery of this important fact, coming so near the time of the 102.'? session of the legislature of which he is to be a member in the up per branch will cause more tlmn oiie man to believe it is more or less of a bit of stage play, a prologue, perhaps, of the highway drama which undoubtedly is going to be staged at Montpelier the coming winter with Stod appearing in the role of the hero or the villian, accord ing to how one views it. Meanwhile, the general public which, whether it wants to or not will have the capacity of angel to the production thrust upon it, since it will have to settle the bill, might well keep in mind the resolu tion presented to the Vermont hotel men in session this week at Manchester which commends the highway department of Vermont, declaring that our roads have been in better condition this year than ever before. These hotel men are wide nwuke and realize that the condition of the highways is a mighty important factor in their business. There is this much to be said. The new highway policy has produced results whichf compare not unfavorably with what has gone before. Perhaps the new machine has not worked without creak ing a bit. That would be nothing strange. An automobile engine runs the smoother after the first thousand miles or so. There will be an attempt, undoubtedly, to re turn to the old system. The question for the legislature to ask itself is, are we go ing to be fair to the new system and give it an opportunity to operate and prove itself, or are we gnio? to keep on switch ing and keep the road machine constantly and continually upset. One of the costly habits Vermont legislatures have is this constant chanee of policy. Nothing fixed: always in a state of 'Must before a change" or just after one. This constant' fluctuation is expensive. Why not net as if we knw our cv:: minds for more than 10 minutes at a time? BIG LANDOWNERS MUST MEND WAYS Iord Blidisloe Says Government Will o Take Land Vnless It Is Det- ter Managed. " I LONDON, Oct. 0. The big land owners of England have been told, in substance, that as a class they have made a bad mess of the "and business and that if they did not do better in the future" the country would take the land from them and turn them adrift. The speaker was Lord Bledisloe, him self a big landowner who, during the war. helped the government manage the food supplies of the country. The occa sion was an address before the British association. "The British agricultural landowner today is on his "trial," Lord Bledsloe as serted. "Unless he justifies himself as such, the nationalization of the land is inevitable. Public opinion will demand his extinction, and parliament will en-, dorse the demand. "Many landowners have been for two generations nothing more. than rent re ceivers, and they have possessed neither the knowledge nor the inclination per sonally to administer their own estates, still, less to cultivate them on commer cial lines for their own and the nation's benefit. "So far' as they have been organized as a class of the community, they have been organized, not as producers of wealth, but as defenders of property, and as such their organization has, in a highly democratic country, afforded them but a small and steadily decreasing measure of security. They have thus lost their political power because they had no economic basis. They have, not wholly without justification, been stig matized as ignorant, reactionary and despotic." l'he biggest lies begin, "Now. when I was your age i .o : .-Oils 1IJ-.J1 lb., m The Young Men's Models and Gentlemen s Consei-vative Lasts for fall and winter use are found in this reliable line and are awaiting your in spection.
