R— Delir ious from the effects of a typhoid fever attack, Rmll Erlckson, re cently of Portland, Ore., escaped from the Dayton hospital, It became known today, and after securing a room In a private lodging house, killed himself by cutting his throat with a razor. The dead man was 2t> years old and Is the son of a wealthy Cordon. Neb., farmer. The Presa receives the full leased Wire report of the United Press. Ten men representing the political powers and big business, which work in darkness and profit by political corruption, met in secret conclave in the office of John L. Wil son in Seattle last Friday night, after midnight, and selected a candidate to represent 200,000 citizens of Washington in the United states senate. The candidate selected is Judge Thomas Burke, a man whose sole relation to public life has been as a representative and a tool of great corporate interests. Back of those ten men, pulling the strings upon which they danced in that confer ence, hide the selfish, profit-seeking special interests making up the consolidated plunderbund, the Guggenheims, the Weyerhaeusers, the tariff entrenched trusts and the great railroad interests. The orders which those interests delivered to their representatives in that confer ence are the plans whioh those interests have for looting the resources of the state and nation. The words which were spoken and the deals that were made in that midnight con ference are alike shrouded in mystery. Even the names of |he conferees are withheld from the public, lest their publication increase the suspicion the conference has aroused. In effect these ten men, hiding their identity under the darkness of night, have said to the people of the state: "We have selected Judge Burke as your next senator." * CONSUMER GOT WATER FLAVORED WITH CRUDE OIL An smusing incident in connec tion with the water shortage in Cannondale has ceme to the sur face.
