DULUTH'S ORGY OF BLOOD CONCLUDED c Minnesota Troops Patroled Streets of City, Where Three Negro Circus Hands Were Lynched Because of Alleged Attack on Whita Girl. Duluth, Minn., June 16. Virtually normal conditions, prevailed to-day on the Duluth business streets over whicn a mob of 5,000 persons surged last night, sweeping the police from power and seizing and lynching three negroes held in connection with an attack on a 17-year-old white girl. When two companies of Minnesota national guardsmen reached here early to-day from St. Paul, they found only a damaged police station and littered streets as evidence of the mob's activi ty. The guardsmen went into tempor ary camp, prepared to patrol the streets, if necessary. Last night's lynchings were accom plished after the pity's police force had been overpowered by bricks and streams from fire hose in an attack on police headquarters. For two hours the mob ruled, relinquishing its power only after the negroes had been lynched. Six negroes had been arrested by the police in connection with the attack on the girl, which took place at a cir cus ground Monday night. The negroes were attached to the circus as rousta bouts. The mob held a "trial," declared three of the negroes guilty and ac quitted the other three, who were still in the hands of the police to-day. The three "convicted" negroes were hanged within a block and a half of the police station, the mob hooting down pleas of two priests that the law be permitted to take its course. It took three starts to hang the Mrs t negro, as the rope broke twice. Injuries suffered by fight policemen and a newspaper man in the brick fight and fire hose attack on the police station were said to-day to be trivial. The negroes hanged were Isaac Mi Chie, Elmer Jackson and Nate Green, all about 22 years old. They were lynched in the order named at 11:30 o'clock p. m. All professed their inno cence. A report was received here early to day from Virginia, Minn., that 10 ne groes were being rushed in automobiles to St. Paul, guarded by deputy sheriffs, ta be placed in the county jail for pro tection. A score of automobiles carry ing members of last night's mob had been reported on the way to Virginia rfrom Duluth in an effort to seize other employes of the circus.

Card of Colliding Train Declares the Signal Indi cated Clear Track on Bos ton fc Albany R. R. Worcester, Mass., June 16. Failure of the block signals to function prop erly was the raute of the rear-end col lision on the Boston & Albany railroad last night, accordiag to a statement made to-day by Engineer Archie J. Card of Cambridge, who is confined in Worcester City hospital suffering from burns on the face and neck and an in jury to his foot. The 12 injured in the hospital were all reported improved to day. None was dangerously hurt. Engineer Card said: "I left ifie Union station on time three minutes behind the express and at tower 28 the block signal was set for me to go one more block. I slowed down and at the next block the signal was set for me to go one more block. At the next block the signal was for me to go ahead, that the road was clear to Mil burn Junction. I released my brakes and was going at the rate of 25 miles sn hour when I saw the danger signal on the track a half mile away. "I attempted to set my brakes, but they would not work, owing to the fact that I had just released them and they did not have sufficient time to re charce. In a few seconds I was upon the rear end of the express train, and j after that everything else was a blank. "I believe that the wreck was caused by the crowbar that was picked tip by the wheels of one of the coaches on the expresa train, which evidently became tangled with the electrical apparatus on the track and caused a foreign cur rent, which prevented the block signals from working properly. "I am positive that the signals wre not set against me, as I watched each block and proceeded slowly into each block until I got the clear signal and then released my brakes." How the crow bar got on the tracks j being investigated by railroad de tectives. It is ttiought that some sec tion hand thoughtlessly threw the bar on the road in such a way that, it was picked tip by the wheels of the express.

CO-OPERATIVE CREAMERY PLAN Many Farmers Enthusias tic for Starting One '. . . in Barre . . COMMITTEES CHOSEN ' TO CANVASS TOWN State Commissioner Brig ham Urged the Adop tion of Plan More than 100 farmers' from Barre City and Barre Town,. W'illiamstown, Washington, Orange, Berlin and Plain field, as well as from other towns, manifested their desire for the erec tion of a co-operative creamery in Barre by convening in W'ortheit hall lust evening for no other purpose than to discuss the possibilities of such a plant. Not one farmer opposed the plan nor offered any discouraging re marks against it ; and neither did one disagree that Barre was an ideal cen ter for tine. The actual business accomplished to ward this project was the appointment of several committee to canvass the various towns in the neighborhood of Barre to get the sentiment of the farm ers and whether or. not these individ uals are willing to bank up the propo sition. The Barre committee consists of Kr nest Hutchinson, Dr. E. H. Bancroft, Arthur Phelp, M. L. Towne and 'Leo Bertram!: W'illiamstown committee, lii-HiKi! Smith, Neil Smith and Perley Sanders; Orange committee, Frank Miner. Archie Flanders and Ernest Bis son, and in this committee was placed the power to choose a committee for Washington. The Berlin canvassers are: Harvey Dodge, William Turner and Fred Winslow. L. S. Little of Plaiiificld suggested that Plainfield farmers Would be desirous of entering into such a project also, so to Mr. Lit tle was left the task of covering Plain field. In connection with this, plans to or ganize a cattle club resulted in the ap pointmcnt of Dr. Bancroft of Barre, Wvness Tucker of Orange, -Neil Smith of W'illiamstown, Harvey Dodge of Berlin,-and L. S. Little of Flainfield to develop plans along these line. E. S. Briirham, sfate commissioner of agriculture, was introduced by Chairman A. I- Smith. Mr. Brigham's tslk naturally pertained to the advan tages reaped' by farmers wherever a co-operative creamery plant was in ex istence. He emphasifed the fact that the propaganda spread about tltat co operative creameries were failing, was matter cut loose by the large milk buyers, who discourage the establish ment of such plants, for hv so doing, they are able to make larger profits on "dairy products .at the expense of the farmers. Since IMA. twenty-four eo-operativc creameries have been or ganized in the state and a yet not one has showed any signs of a failure. Not a little amazing to many was the fact that skim milk, fed to pigs and calves, netted the farmer approxi mately 75 cents per hundrweight. whereas many farmers now dispose of this product at 40 and Ml cents. This stfttement Mr. Brigham based on sci entific analyses and experiments. "Un less skim milk brings at least 70 cents for 100 pounds." Mr. Brigham declared, "you had better prefer teerting it to stock than to sell it at a low market priif." . Co-operative Creameries Not New in Vermont. -The co operative creamery is not new- scheme in Vermont, but an es tablished idea that has thrived. Ac cording to laws passed in Vermont in 191.", no one person can hold over 10 ner cent r-f the entire stock. No on stockholder can have more than one vote. Dividends vf not more, than six pei- cent can be paid on the stivck as thisc co-operative epterprises are or-camx'-d for co-operation. Furthermore, a required sum of money is eet aside each year as a surplus fund to keep good the investments. Mr. Brigham suggested thst shares be sold at ?1. each, or in other Words, $10 upon each head of cettk- which a farmer may own.- In this sy the money for a eo operative plant coul I be raised. It was for the purpose of learning the number of cows in this district and the amount of utocks a man can take that the committees were found necessary. Ihe state department of agriculture gives the assistance of exerts in this work, and already a movement is afoot to establish sales' agents and inspectors in the various large towns for the bet terment of the federation of co-operative creameries. Such- co-operative creameries are erected to aoeommodate the surround ing communities and in the case of Barre one capahle of raring for the products of more than 4.I1SI cows would te necessary, for that was the esti mate in llO of rattle owned in Barre.

PRICE, TWO CENTS. SUCCESS MEANS THINGS DONE Declared William Wishart in Address to Goddard Commercial Graduates 49 YOUNG PEO 4' RECEIVE L0MAS A- Vera Benl Was Vale- dictorj$ Jorothy Pier son V as Salutatorian Armed with their diplomas, 40 young men and women, members of the gradu atmg class in the commercial course at Goddard seminary, last evening turned their backs on school life and announced thmielves ready for the business world. Their graduating exercises were held in the chapel at the seminary be fore A lajge audience of parents and friends. William Wishart of Barre, who grad uated from Goddard 25 years ago in the class nf '05, was the speaker of tho evening. In introducing hira, Prin.. O. K Hollister referred to Mr. Wishart as one of the graduates of the school who had always stood out in his mem ory, not-so much for his behavior and scholarship while in school, as for his' willing spirit of enthusiasm and service when service was needed. Mr. Wishart address was one of wise and kindly advice to the young peo ple before him: He urged them to re member in these days, when success ta commonly, measured ill money, that ultimate satisfaction lies not in money., but in things achieved, and in inter est in one's work. "Having taken a vital interest In your work," he said, "do not ever ba afraid to express to your employers jour ideas. They will be welcomed even if they are not put into practice immediately. You are younger than they and there may come to you idea of value which were denied them be cause their education is not equal to yours. The dollars will come but do not bother about them, because they will never bring you any real happiness of themselves." He represented opportunity as knock ing at one's door, not just once, but anew every morning. Tolerance for tha views of others should be a part of their business creed, he said. "Having learned all that you can on the subject, state your own views with firmness but moderation and then stick to them. But if you are in the wrong do not bo afraid to say so. It takes a strong man or woman to admit that." "The next 10- years are pregnant with possibilities for young people," ho said, "what the world needs is produc tion and that means labor. Are you ready for itf I believe that fatigfia should limit working hours, and aUr that time for rest." His closing advice to them was, "Don't just buv whst you eat and wear. Anybody can jo that. Earn it and with that earning there will come to you tha utmost satisfaction." The program of the evening opened with, a musical number with two piano?. Miss Eva Croteau and Miss Sladeline Dion. They played Guriitt's Overture-Marionette. Rev. Frank O. Hokerk, pastor of .tha Universalist church, offered prayer at the beginning of the program and pronounced tho benediction at the close. Miss Dorothy Piersou delivered tho salutatory wfrfi an essay, "A Tributo to Business." Miss Pierson commented, on the fact that the student nowaday devoted all his day and years of study to . increasing his earning power. rather than to self -development. It ia her belief that opportunity is not some thing which knocks at our doors, but that, opportunity consists in continual work and nerseverance. r"ne mae ins c)olrj. with a quotation from David Hantni which she urged her classmates tc apply to work. "A ittle too much ia just right." Tha history of tho elas during it two years course was read by Retno Bianehi, president of tha cists. Miss Vera Benjamin sang t-o solos, "A In Old Gsrdens" (Risherl and "I Know a Hill" (Whelpley) with feeling and, excellent ton. The class prophecy wa dellred by Jra1d Smith who, on meeting a former lamat acting a a porter "n th Grnd Control ttioo in New York, )erned of the careers, tho majority of them humorous, which bar elasirato wr pursuing Mis Helen Rossi played a piano olo, -Under Bright Skies" (Whelpley). Her technique wa noticeably good. Tho musical number following Mr. Wit hart's address, a cornet solo by Mrio Barberi, in which he was accompanied by his sister. Mis Elena Barberi, wa especially appreciated and received, with a great deal of enthusiasm by the audience. Miss Vera Benjamin delivered the valedictory, urging her classmates to remember alwavs their class motto, "Not for self but for all." assuring them that they would find nothing in tfceir lives more subtly satisfying than the happiness which would come to them from making other people bappy. In presenting to the class their diplo mas. Prin. Hollister urged them to re member, first that opportunity comes tc a certain class of people in Me. those who have an inclination to serve ' And second, thst the greatest thing in life i character, and without good character they will all fail oooer or later.
