His retirement from the director
ship of tlie national organisation of
republics is believed forecast by tlie
report. Tlie George Junior Republic
vas founded by George as a refuge for
bad boys. Pioneer members we're
toughs of the old Dowery, youth who
said they "never had a chance." These
were taken to the hills of Freeville,
near Ithaca, and under George's di
rection governed themselves in the
republic he founded. George was a
benevolent despot. I lis chief aim was
to bring back to home life wayward
boys and girls. From the model at
Freeville other George Junior Repub
lics were founded throughout the coun
try. Counsel for George was indignant
and said that only witnesses against
his client had been heard and that
witnesses could have been called who
would easily have disproved some of
Seth-i the charges. George is 4, and has
been in poor health more than a year.

undesirable." It was brought out in
the testimony by the; committee; of
trustees that George could hynotize
himself standing before a mirror.

supporting for the first time since
1SS3 are features of the annual report
of Postmaster General Hurlesou,
transmitted to congress yesterday.
He urges that he be authorized to con
tract for experimental aerial mail ser
vice and says his department has sub
mitted a request for 550,000 to use for
that purpose.
Discussing the policy of government
ownership of telegraph and telephone
lines. Mr. Purleson says:
"A study of the constitutional pur
poses of the postal establishment
leads to the conviction that the post
office department should have control
over all means of the communication
of intelligence.
"The first telegraph line in this
country was maintained and operated
as a part of the postal service, and it
is to be regretted that congress saw
fit to relinquish this facility to private
enterprise. The monopolistic nature
of the telegraph business makes it of
vital importance to the eople that it
be conducted by unselfish inter'ests,
and this can be accomplished only
through government ownership.
"The act of July 24, I860, providing
for the government acquisition of the
telenranh lines upon payment of an
armraised valuation and the act of
PtOL' directing the postmaster general
'to report to congress the probable
cost of connecting a telegraph and
telephone system with the postal ser
vice by some feasible plan are evl
dences of the policy of this govern
ment ultimately to acquire and oper
ate these electrical means of com
munication as postal facilities, as is
done by all the prlnciap! nations, the
t'nited States, alone excepted.
Lauds Parcel Post.
"Tiie successful operation of the
parcel post has demonstrated the ca
pacity of the government to conduct
the public utilities which fall properly
within the postal provision of the con
stitution.
"Kvery argument in favor of the
government ownership of telegraph
lint's may be advanced with equal
logic and force in favor of the govern
ment ownership of te-lephone lines. It
has he-en completely decided that a
t, l - phone me.ssaye and i telegram are
tlie tame within the meaning of the
vey was killed and two other men
wounded. More than 50 shots were
fired.
Marshal Kasling attempted to arrest,
Harvey and his companion on the
street, on bootlegging charge. Har
vey fired twice ami Kasling and his
companion fled. The shots missed.
Kasling went about town awakening
citizi-ns and recruited an armed posse.
Harvey lived with his wife and two
children in three rooms in the city
hall building on Main street. . Th
posse took positions at four sides of
the building. In response to a shot
f'arvey appeared at the door. "Sur
render," shouted Kasling, "we are 15
strong. You don't want your family
hurt."
Given Revolver by Wife.
Mrs. Harvey handed her husband a
revolver and retired. Harvey opened
fire. Before a shower of bullets
brought him down he had shot C. H.
Weber in the leg and grazed Kasllng s
scalp. The posse swarmed up the
steps and found the body of Harvey
cm the porch riddled by bullets and
charges from shotguns.
Before the battle was over half the
population of the town was lu the
