With the Pecan MAN IS KILLED AS CAR UPSETS AT CLOVER HILL Deane Ware, Jackson Farmer Has Neck Broken Under Overturned Car. 3 OTHERS INJURED, ONE MAY BE FATALLY HURT i Ruddle Adams Drove Car Off Road Down Steep Ditch on Way to Dance. One man was killed instantly and three were injured, one possibly fatal ly, shortly before 9 o'clock last night when an automobile plunged over an embankment on the Green Ferry road near the C lover Hill schoolhouse, lour miles northeast of Jackson. As the car went over the edge of the road, i turned turtle at the bottom of the ditch. The dead man is Deane Ware, a farmer living near Jackson, and a man ! between 35 and 40 years old. He was pinioned beneath the overturned ma chine and his neck was broken, causing 'his immediate death. The injured a it: Ruddle Adams, Po- canontas. cuts, bruises, scratcnes over entire body, and internal injuries, serious. Jim Ware, living near Jackson, r.ephew of dead man, internal injuries, critical and possibly fatal. Clarence Althenthal, Jackson, clothes torn virtually from body, face cut, one ear cut almo.-t off and left arm badly injured. A young man named Abernalhy, who was in the car, was thrown free of the machine as it went over the edge of the ditch, and escaped injury. News of the accident did not reach Jackson for nearly an hour after the accident, when the uninjured members of the auto party walked back to tow.i for aid. Coroner K. R. Schoen was summoned from his home at Gordonville to go to the scene of the accident, draw a jury and have the body viewed on the ground where the accident occurred. Late last night the body had not been moved from the scene of the accident. Early this morning, after Coroner Schoen had arrived at the place where the accident occurred, the body was taken to a Jackson undertaker's par lors. The accident occurred while the men j were riding down a hill. Ruddle Adams, owner of the machine was driving, and the car. according to the statement of members of the party, was going at a fast rate of speed. The men were on the way to a dance that was held last night at the Brick Schoolhouse about four miles out of Jackson en the Green Ferry road. As the car got part of the way down the hill, it got beyond control of Adams after swerving off the road, plunged over the crown into a ditch. At the foot of the ditch was a barbed wire fence. Althenthal. who had much of his clothing torn from his body and sustained cuts about the head and body, was shot out of the machine like out of a cataoault. His body was sent through the wire fence which caused the injuries that he received. Abernathy was thrown entirely clear of the car and fence, so that he escaped injury. Adams was caught under the ma chine with the steering wheel driven into his breast, causing internal in juries that he sustained and Jim Ware was caught under the car in a manner that caused internal injuries. The man who was killed is married and has two children. The wife was prostrated last night when she v as notified of her husband's death. When Abernathy and Althenthal re covered from the shock of the incident, they attempted to haul the car off of the bodies of the three members of the party buried beneath it. They suc ceeded in liberating Adams and Jim Ware and when they got the body of Deane Ware out, they found that he was dead. They then set out to summon aid from Jackson for their companions and get medical attention for Althenthal's injuries. Grove precinct included in the com parison, Brinkopf defeated Hutson by 28 votes in Cape township. Because the vote in the Brinkopf Hutson contest was so close, political friends of Brinkopf yesterday held out hope that he might overcome his op ponent's lead, by the return from the absentee vote. Harl H. Haas, chairman of the Cape Hughes-Lamm Clubf last night declar ed that he held iittle hope of any ma terial change in the result from that source. There are 50 absentee votes, of which, he said, he know that about 13 to 20 were Democratic, so that the vote, may increase HulsonV lead. ERNEST FOSTER WEDS FRIEDA McCLATCHEY Cape Couple Have Ceremony Performed Monday in St. Louis. RETURN HOME TODAY; SPRING A SURPRISE Were Childhood Sweethearts Foster Makes Trip for Parental Contest. Almost a month before the wedding dats which they ha'l confided to their parents. Miss Frieda McClatchey and Ernest Foster, well-known voung au- j tomobile salesman, were married Mon- day in St. Louis. Miss McClatchey's parents learned of the wedding yesterday afternoon when they 'received a letter from the bridal pair, written after the cere mony. The couple will arrive home in the Cape today and will make their home temporarily with the bride's par ents. Mr. and Mrs. S. F. McClatchey of 430 North Frederick street. The wedding was a complete sur prise to botii the parents of the couple as well as their friends in the Cape. It was arranged by the couple as a cli max to the Democratic election cam paign. Miss McClatchey, shortly after the j close of the primary campaign, Aug. 1, last, obtained a position in St. Louis at the headquarters of the Democratic State Committee. The place was ob tained for her through H. K. Alex ander, Democratic leader in the Cape by whom she had been employed in, the Cape. The couple became engaged to be married several weeks prior to Miss McClatchey's departure for St and young roster made several tzip to St. Louis to visit his fiance. On each trip he endeavored to have the weddine: date .set earlier than the date upon which they had agreed. Miss McClatchey had set her wed ding day to be in the latter part of November and she had planned to be one of the bridesmaids at the wedding of her sister, Miss Janette McClatchey, who will be married to J. F. Schaad on Nov. 23. Last Saturday, however, young Fos ter made what he determined would be his last trip to St. Louis. When lie j arrived there, .Miss .McClatchey was j sure that the side on which she had Ibeen working would win. She relent ed but made her consent to the wed ding conditional that Foster obtain her father's consent. Young Foster grabbed his hat and made for the nearest railroad station and came back to the Cape. He did not rely on a telephone conversation, but went to headquarters, had a long confidential talk with Mr. McClatchey ,and finished his conversation in time to catch the return train to St. Louis. The wedding occurred on the follow ing day, and Mr. Foster has been a believer in action combined with words since. Miss McClatchey had been staying at the home of Mis. George Weston at Geyer and Oregon avenues in St. Louis, and Monday, after obtaining a license at the City Hall, they had the wedding performed at the Weston resMence. Yesterday they departed from St. Lot' is to go to the home of Mrs. Fos ter's grandmother, Mrs. Anna Kip ponberg, at St. Marys, Mo. They spent the day and last niirht at the Kippenherg residence and are expected to arrive in the Cape at 1 o'clock today. Friend , of the couple today expect to meet them at the train and escort :1h"VI to Cut r home. They will make their home at the McClatchey residence with the bride's parents for several weeks i ntil Mr. and Mps. McClatchey move to a small er revdence that they are preparing. Miss McClatchey is the older daugh ter of Mr. and Mrs. McClatchey, and she and Mr. Foster have been sweet hearts since childhood. They went to school together. Mr. Foster, until recently, was as sociated with Oliver G. Edwards and Albert Grimes at the Grimes & Ed wards garage. Recently he has been engaged in looking after his father's farming interest in Southeast Mis souri. RUB-ftlY-TISM Will dire Rheumatism,-Neuralgia, Headaches, Cramps, Colic Sprains, Bruises, Cuts.

Capt. H. W. Bridges ran both a close third. Judge Edward D. Hays got a COO lead over his opponent, Judge Frank Kelly, Cape County. . Dickey ran behind his ticket in the nice atruinst Senator James A. Reed j David W. Hill was slightly behind the j norma! Republican ticket in this coun- ! ty, according to returns tabulated at 4 Louis o'clock this morning, and Crren Wil tz ins! son lost considerably in this county. j He maintained a majority of more 'than 500 over his opponent O. S. Har- rison of Dunklin County. The tremendous Democratic lead Harrison receives in his home county, however, is expected to be Wilson's downfall. Erncot Caldwell defeated W. A. Summers for county assessor; Dr. Ar- thur Poe is elected Coroner over Dr. Morgan of the Cape. Judge John A. Snider polled the normal Republican majority over his opponent R. H. Whitelaw in the rac? for Common Pleas bench. D. M. Scivally is easily a winner in the race for constable in Cape town ship. Returns that were tabulated early this morning also indicate the defeat of the amendments to the State consti tution by heavy majorities in each case. The third mendment was voted down by a majority of more than 1500. Many of the voters did not mark their ballots on the amendments and many of them failed to vote on the stock law. From the returns on this measure, it is believed to have passed V ith two precincts out the vote shows the following results: Hughes, 3567; Wilson. 2803; Dickey, 3528; Reed. 2S42; Lamm. 3589; Gardner, 2764: Hill, 3467; Russell. 2S85; Or- ren Wilson, 3314; Harrison, 2948 Hays. 3526; Kelly, 2934; Bridges, 3464; Jenkins, 2878; Brinkopf, 3153; Hutson. 3301; Caldwell, 3320; Sum mers, 3737. Inside of the city of Cape Girar deau the voting was Republican in every precinct. The closest contest in any of the precincts was between Judge Kelly and Judge Hays in the Bottling Works, the home of Judge Kelly and the prospective home of Judge Hays. Hays defeated Kelly there by one vote. The total vote polled in the county and in the city this year breaks all former records. More than three quar ters of the voting had been put into the ballot boxes by 4 o'clock in the afternoon. There was a rush to the polls in the morning and from the noon hour till after 3 o'clock. The workmen at the shoe factory were released at 3:30 o'clock to vote and the workmen at the Frisco shops were off all day long to vote and work in getting out the vote. The counting in many of the pre cincts required until late last night and in Steimle and Klosternian. it was after midnight before the returns were available. In Steimle, it took till al most 3 o'clock to conclude the count. Those two precincts polled the high est vote in their history. Throughout the day, the city was quiet and at none of the polling places was there any disturbance of any character. Not an arrest wa$ made during the entire drv -l"e to vw vir? lciue at the polls. U. S. BANKERS TO OPEN MONEY BAG TO THE ALLIES Barons at Conference in Chicago Reach Plan to Avert a Crisis. MORGAN MAN TELLS OF BANKERS' PLANS Says Gold From England, France and Russia Is S the United States. ence here yesterday between Henry 1 Davidson ox J. P. Morgan & Co., Charles H. Sabin, president of the I Uuarantee Trust Company of New i 0rk, and other leading New York and j Chicago banker, J It was tentatively agreed to extend I enormous credit to Great Britain and France without collateral. The plan evolved by American and European bankers contemplates the purchase by American bankers of thir- j mulated in Canada. This will establish The new plan will avoid, bankers I say, the danger of a monetai v .-risic in the old world and will secure Amer- j icans against any loss in extending credit io the Allies in the event that the Central Powers are eventii.i'Iv ne cessful. Henry p. Davidson. J. P. Morgan': representative, was somewhat dis plea.M d at the newspaper reports o the bankers' conference. He discredit ed the belief that England was reach to abandon specie payment. He die tated the following statement: 'The suggestion that Great Britan may abandon the specie payment an demonotize gold is not well founded ind we did not discuss any sucl proposition. We did take up, however the question of cold importation which are reaching such proporti ion- as to be of real concern to this coun try. 'The nation is beginning to feel thr effect of the new and !aic credits cre ated here and based upon the goh! storage which is far in excess of oui national supply. It is of greater mo ment to us that we cheek this expan sion than to Great Britain or Franci that they avoid further metal ship ments. "We all realize that a great indus trial and commercial structure created upon the foundation of an abnorma goid supply must be unstable. Witl its return to Europe, the businesh structure that was erected upon it must inevitably fall." BOWLERS TO FORM TOURNEY ASSN.

BIG DUNKLIN TRACT RAVAGED BY FLAMES Farmers Fight Fire All Night to Save Homes No Lives Yet Lost. Forest fires, which are raging in the northern part of Arkansas and at vari ous points in Southern- Missouri, have sent a cloud of smoke more than one hundred miles from the scene of the conflagration. The haze has given Cape Girardeau a harvest moon during the psat week. In the late afternoon the sky has taken on an orange glow, which has been called by many an Indian Sum mer sky. In reality, it has only been the reflection of the flames of burning leaves and trees upon the heavens. There are 20,000 acres of ground be ing swept by the flames in Dunklin County, according to reports from Kennett, but no loss of life has been reported. Quite a number of buildings on farms have been destroyed during he past week. Farmers in the stricken zone are reported to be plowing strips of ground around their homes and farm buildings to save them from the flames. The lire was first reported in Ar kansas three weeks ago. It raged for several day. but a heavy rain quench ed it, according to the report. The re cent dry weather has started it anew, and the burning embers are said to have been carried into Missouri, set ting tire to the dry leaves and swamp grass. Wild turkey, deer and an army of rabbits and squirrels have fled from the lire zonef according to farmers in Dunklin County. Several deer were killed in Dunklin County last week is they were attempting to cross the county. In their flight they ran through the outskirts of villages and were killed. Farmers have turned out in great lumbers in Dunklin County to fight the flames. Reports from there say n several nights the farmers was compelled to continue the battle with 1ame all night to saTe their homes and livestock. Only a heavy rain. lasting for two or three days, will extinguish the fire. T. DUVALL INQUEST TO BE HELD TODAY fireman bays lie Stepped in Front ei Engine as Was Hit and killed.
