THE I/>S ANGELES OUTRAGE [ Not in a long timo has such an outrageous prime been committed in this country as the Mowing up of the Los Angeles Times and the resultant fatalities therefrom. Over on this side ?f the Atlantic people have for many years congratulated them? selves that they were free from the bomb outrages perpetrated in many European countries, this latter class of crime being the favorite brand of the anarchist societies, and though it is true the Haymarket a.Tair in ', Chicago a number of years ago indi? cated that this system was spreading to America, the ??uiek and severo punishment wh.ch followed atWaMd ?o have put an end to it. N >w c??mes .the Los Angeles outrage, bringing not only death, but the alarm, which lolon A this description, may be the means of stamping out the wretches who thus sacrifice hu? man life. Already the largest reward ?.ver offered in the criminal annals of this country awaits the ?nan or men who succeed in bringing the perpetrators to justice, and once be? fore the bar of the California courts it is easy to imagine their fate. It seems unfortunate. h??wever. that if these men are arrested only the ordi? nary mode of punishment cran be in? flicted. Hanging or electrocution fa too good for the men who ruthless? ly and heartlessly took the lives of so many of tluir fellow creatures, and this without the slightest excuse or justification. With the biggest corn an?! oats crop in the history of the country.to ?say nothing of hay. 1-arley and minor crops, it is somewhat hard to under? stand the causes f?>r the rise in near? ly all of the cities in the price of milk and other dairy products. Why is it that with the price of feed going down, milk it g??ing up? The con? sumer has a right to know. Considering the ease with which the "Progressive Colonel" endorsed the "stand-pat tarritr bill" on as? sume that he will experience no dif? ficulty in ?tfsdoroing Congressman aSlemp, while at the same time re? pudiating l'ne'e lot? I'annon, whose devoted follower Slemp has always b?een. DECLARES PRIMARY VOID Committee Reports Result of Probe ia Satcond Congressional District. The State Democratic committee in session at Richmond Tuesday adopted a report from the sube ?mmittee which investigated the alleged frauds in the D-rtrisjcratic ptimary election? in the Second (Norfolk(congressionaldistrict, the gist of which is the following: "Having listened patiently to the evi? dence produced and thoroughly consid? ered the whole, your committee recom? mends that the primary of August 23, 1910, held in the Second congressional district for nomination of a candidate for Congress, be declared null and void. ' ' To the Second District Committee was given the task of selecting the method of nominating a party candi? date. It was given powers to modify the party law in case it decided to hold a primary, because of the lack of time to comply with the regulations in de? uil. However, there will be no primary. 6RAND JURY TO LOOK INTO SECOND DISTRICT PRIMARY Judge Hanckel at Norfolk instructed the grand jury to probe alleged elections frauds, as brought out in the investi? gation of the Democratic Second Dis? trict congressional primary. The grand jury will go into the matter, but will not consider the failure on the part of . -?-?-?-*-i^_-?--i4jy--; Young to file state aas?s?>a?M lassssa *..., gn expenses. The only step possible under the Barksdale law, said Judge Hanckel, would be a proceeding by the Common? wealth to collect a maximum fine of $5,000 from each of the candidates for failure to file their statement?. Under this law no punishment is provided in the event candidates without means prove their inability to pay fines. 3,700 WITNESS TO BE HEARD Grand Jury, Probing Second District Primary, to Call Alleged Voters.
