Wednesday. These were the last of
the 'Quilhot cases" and were against
Thomas o'Ncll. Pierson C. Pakcr. John

cases had mwii out of the invcstiRa
tions made by John H. Quilhot who al
leged that the deftiulants had sold
liquor in back rooms of saloons whin
they had no license to sll anywhere
than from their bar.
The prosecutor made his motion for
dismissal on the grounds ttiat the
charge against thse men vas iden
tical with the charges against several
who were tried at tlu- last term of the
court and were either acquitted or
were disch ar-t d because of certain
deficiencies under the law in the state's
evidence. It was stated as the opinion
of the pros eutor and competent w it
nesscs that it would not be possible
to secure conviction in the cases set
for this term.

Charitable residents of Minneapolis
today were trying to obtain funds to
send Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Deelaney,
both 24 years old. to some place where
the young husband could receive
treatment for tuberculosis. The couple
walked to Minneapolis from Chicago
when the husband was discharged
from a restaurant where he w.is chef
because of his illness. He could not
lind employment here, and when the
last of their money was gone, Mrs.
Deelaney sold her hair, which hung
nearly to her knees, for $l..",e. This
money was soon gone and the couple
found employment en a farm near
here. They were arrested, accused of
the theft of two rins. but when their
story was told in court, they were re
leased. The funds which were being
raised today uall be used to send them

Big Boosters' Event Under the
Auspices of Chamber
of Commerce.
Announcement v-s made today that
Wednesday, June i will be "I'ateball
Day" in iouth P.end.
Preparations for the big booster
event for the South Lend Southern'
Michigan elub will be started by the
Chamber of commerce at a commit
tee meeting Thursday or Friday. It
is expected that a number of social
and business clubs in the city will
participate in the annual baseball af
fair. "Baseball Hay" will be the final
date of a four-game scries with the
Flint Autos. This will mean the pres
ence of four of tlie members of tho
l'.'l'j championship Central league
club. Kddie Wheeler, manager and
second baseman ot the Flint club, and
Boh Wells, catcher and president, Kd
Smith, owner, and pen Kochkr, man
ager of the South Bend club, being
the quartet of favorites as the attrac
tion. No otf.cial announcement of the cel
ebration has been made as yet by tho
Chamber of Commerce, but the notice
w ill he . g-iv,en in a short time. It is
believed that every effort will be put
forth to give the necessary help to tho
South Bend club by the Chamber of
Commerce, social and civic organiza
tion. in keepine .with the general
spirit of progress prevalent here.
Thus far the Southern Michigan
season has been handicapped ly un
favorable weather, which has proved
somewhat disastrous to Owner Mmith.
The league is staging a strikingly close
race at this time and indications
are that the tight for the pennant will
be a tsght one. Better weather is ex
pected to improve attendance for tlie

most aggiassive and fastest elubs

More Austrian Towns Are Cap

Eye-Witness Describing Aerial
Attack Upon Venice Says
Incendiary Bombs Were
Used by Austrian Aviators.
Ho.MK, May 26. Striking rapidly
at the Austrian frontier positions, the
Italian army is winning nil along tho
front, according to an o Tieial report
from Gen. Cadorna. the Italian com-mander-in-chief,
issued at the war of
fice today.
All the frontier passes i:i the Cad ore
district have been captured by the
Italians, who have also occupied sev
eral more towns in Austrian territory.
The ollicial reports of operations
thus far received show that the Ital
ians arc moving forward along a
front of about GO miles. The Austrians
thus far have not offered battle, con
tinuing1 their retreat and destroying;
bridges to hamper the Italian army.
Here's CieMieral's Report.
Tho report from Gen. Cadorna was
as follows:
"We have occupied all the frontier
passes near Cadore. The enemy bom
barded Ooncjuemisruina without result
din ing the night.
"We took Valinferno pass with the
ba onet.
"The enemy is retiring everywhere,
destroying- bridges.
"Our aviators threw bombs upon
the electricity works and railway sta
tion at Monfalcon (10 miles north
west of Trieste).
"Our troops on May 24 occupied
I'orcelan. Montzzo, Tonalo. Ponte HI
Caffaro, Giudicaria. the territory north
of Fcrrara. iMontc Pablo. Monte Corne,
Monte. Foppiano, Pasubic, Monte Pof
felania. at the extremities of the Agno
and Ieegra valleys, and the high de
files of the Ilrenta valley. AVc have
made several prisoners.
"Along the Friuli frontier and the
middle Isonzo we continued success
fully on May 2.". At Caporetta we dis
posed of the troops on the heights
and won the Judrio and Ionzo. On
the lower Isonzo we continued our of
fensive in order to reach the line of
the river.
"Austrian artillery at Santa Marin,
at Santa bucia and southwest of Tol
mino opened fire upon our positions
on the heights of the Judrio and
Isonzo without result.

Wild, enthusiasm has been caused
here by the otlicial antieuneenients of
Italian successes a gainst the Aus
trian?. Cheers greeted Italian reserv
ists as they assembled to receive their
equipment Among them were pic
turesque mountaineers and shepherds
who had rushed to the capital as soon
as news of the declaration of war had
reached the remote districts.
The military critics are pledged to
make no comment on military opera
tions and therefor' tlv newspapers
carry nothing but oiti -ia 1 bulletins.

Italian army was successful at all
points. The Italian army now threat
