SLUGGED IN DARK ALLEY i n ________ A sudden thump on the head and John Olson, rooming at the Chica go hotel, knew no more. He was walking in the alley last night be tween Main and Front ays.. just ofi Washington St.. when he was Struck down. Regaining con-: sciousness he staggered to the po lice station and reported that he had been robbed of $15 and a gold watch. Olson bore a good sized lump over his right temple in cor- j roboration of his story. BURDENED BY GREAT LIFE TRAGEDIES HE TRIES SUICIDE CLEVELAND, 0.. March 11.—Un able to bear a burden trifling com pared to one he bore in his youth. John Bchaber shot himself twice and may die. In his room he was found leaning over a transcript of the case of the kinf ot Wuertem- " JOHN SCHABER. berg against Johann Schaber. It turns out that, although now wealthy and respected. Schaber was a convict in the old country. However, Schaber was no or dinary convict. His was a little Dreyfus case, it is claimed. Schaber was the only son of a prominent citizen of Unterheln reith, a village. In 15."9 a half dozen young men attacked him on the road at night. The assailants —all but one —confessed them selves in the wrong and settled his doctor bill. The other man was found dead a few days later. He had crawled away and bled to death. An ambitious young crown attor ney conducted a relentless prosecu tion of Schaber. He was brow beaten, made to sign a confession, and sentenced to death. M'itnesses recanted testimony, and the court recommended clemency. The king commuted the sentence to life im prisonment, and Schaber spent 11 years as convict No, 323 iv the prison at Stuttgart before he was pardoned. He at once came to this country, prospered and married. About 12 years ago, when he had wealth and prestige, he opened a campaign for a reopening of the case against him in Germany. A great stir was made. An editor who espoused his cause went to jail for it. The former prosecutor was now the chief justice of the court of ap peals. Owing to the criticisms of his conduct in the old ease he re signed and is said to have died in sane. After bearing this tragedy of his past with fortitude. Schaber tried to end his life because his factory burned the other day. Ib left the smoldering ruins, went home and Ihot himself. Old memories must ha\e contributed to the act. for he had tbe old record at his elbcw when found.

Mr. Ryan said there was no kick on the manner in which he has dis charged the duties of his office, and in view of the- fact that he re ceived a large number of votes to retain him in office it is evident that his statement and that of his friends comes near being the truth. He was ousted by 11 majority. 'Ihe membership of Federal union ..o. 11.H24 is made up large ly of city employes. This being the case, ii would seem the members of the union are not unanimous in supporting the present administra tion. OFFICIAL CROP REPORT. WASHINGTON, D, ('..
