With the three talesmen examined saying they had overwhelming prejudice' against capital punishment, the process of getting a Jury to try John Masauredis began be fore Judge Sutton In tha district court Mon day morning. Tho trial did not begin until 11 o'clock and It seemed doubtful therefore that a Jury W'.uld he secured by night. The prisoner sat between his counsel, J. M.

He declared In response to the county attorney's question that he would not Join in with other jurors In settling on the death penalty no matter what the evi dence was, and he was excused for cause forthwith. G. Cunningham and Joseph Kurti, the next two men, made similar answer and were likewise released. Harry Kingsbury, 4216 Lafayette avenue, declared that he did not object to thu death penalty and while he had read-of the case had not formed a definite opinion as to the defendant's guilt or innocence. The county attorney asked him about his previous occupations to his present one, bookbinding, and then passed him for cause. Before the trial began the new Jury panel reported.

ULTIMATE CONSUMER VICTIM Some Developments in Discussion of Tariff Enlightening. 8PECXAX. AGENT TALKS OF OILS 'Pore Olive Oil from France" Shown to Be Really American Cottonseed Oil, Which Franre Works Over and fteuds Back. WASHINGTON, May ?4.-The "ultimate consumer," the scspegoat of the tariff dis cussion In congress, la being enlightened On many questions through the publica tion of facts brought out In debate. Some of this knowledge brings no Joy to the heart of the "ultimate consumer," for he finds that In many Instances he has been deceived. Apropos of the recent dis cussion In tha senate regarding the neces sity for protecting the American cotton seed oil Industry, Special Agent Julian L. Hrode of the Department of Commerce and Labor has sent information from Mar seilles, France, that the American "ulti mate consumer" has bucn using his own cottonseud oil for his salad dressing In the belief that It was, "pure illve oil" from France. Mr. Brode adds, In kindly spirit, that the French pure food law and the short crop of olives Is going to boost tha price of real olive oil for the "ultimate consumer." Those southern senators who opposed the placing of a duty on cottonseed oil con tended the Industry needed no protection, on the ground that there was no competi tion abroad, but Mr. Brode gives a list of oils that compete with the American oil. He al60 contends that cottonseed manu facture is strictly an American enterprise, by declaring that cottonseed was being crushed In Marseilles when It was being thrown away In America. France Imports about one-fifth of the cottonseed oil shipped out of the United States, and Mar sellrs Is the largest vegetable oil producer in the world, having forty-five mill which crush about 465,000 tons of seed annually, in addition to the large amount of oil which Is shipped there. "Most of the cottonseed oil Is mixed with other oils olive, peanut and sesame and sold as olive oil," writes Mr. Bode. "Olive oil, aratchade or peanut oil and sesame oils are the oils most used In competition with cottonseed oils. Olive oil Is In a class by Itself. Qood edible grsdes of other oils, about one-fifth of the cottonseed oil are bought In preference to the latter in the majority of cases." Mr. Bode adds that the price of olive oil is very high. "But Inasmuch as new olive oil will not come on the market until De cember, and the salad, vegetable and fish ing season is now on, bringing with It an Increased demand, It is hardly probable that a decline will take place. The strict French pure food law, which has been In effect for about a year, 1 having Its ef fect on the market. Mixed oil waa sold formerly as olive oil, but Is not so sold now. This further curtails the supply and confines the demand more directly to the best grades of olive oil." TELEPATHY LIKE WIRELESS TELEGRAPHY, SAYS SCIENTIST Messages Only Herelved by P.rsnna Susceptible to Impulse, Says -Prof. I,. A. Wrltmer. Before an audience that filled the Lric theater to the doors, Prof. 8. A. Weltmer representing the Boston Society of Scien tific Research, delivered a lecture upon "Telpathy," last night. He spoke of i:ie many Instances on record of persons who received Impressions from friends and rel atives on the battlefield, especially during the civil war. The Impressions, he said, were usually connected with suffering. He compared u-lepathy with wireless tel egraphy, and said: "We do not know a much about telepathy as we do about tel egraphy." He explained how experiments were being made by a number of men In terested In the science and said the best results obtained were in messages received from South Africa. Australia and southern India. "Telepathy, he said. "Is similar to the wireless telegraph In that It probably af fects the ether or some other element more sensstlve even thsn that, and so the mes sage la only received by persons who make themselves suceptible to the Impulse, Just as a wireless Instrument hss to be ad Justed to the sending one, Luther Bur bunk asserts that he has not only received messages from people, but has also com municated with plants and flowers all over the country." The lecture was the first of a series of three to be held at the l.yrie theater. To night he will talk on "Therapeutic Sug gestion. ' and Tuesday night upon "Psychic phenomena."

MAYOR RE-ENTERS WITH FIRE Dahlman'i Office Blazei on Bay of Second Inauguration. FLAMES PUT OUT BY SECRETARY Mayor Knows Xothlns nf It Vntll Miss Malone rnnaners the Bias and Tells Him Hove It Happened. Mayor Pahlman was baptised with fire en the occasion of his Induction Into of fice Monday to begin his second term as chief executive of the city of Omaha. Hut the ms;or showed none of those brave qualities heard of so much, in fact, it Is said he knew nothing of the fire until It'wHS out, snd had It not been for the presence of mind of Miss Nellie Malone. the mayor's secretsry. the city hall might now be nothing but a moss of smojlderlng ruins. Luckily. Miss Malone saw the Tire In time and Instead of acreamlng and run ning amay, as some women would have done, she grabbed some old rugs and ex tinguished It before much harm was done. The mayor was talking over the 'phone In his private office and Miss Malone had gone it'to another Inner office, when some office seekers had left. She soon returned to the main office to find It blue with smoke. Flames were rracklnlg around her desk and official documents, blown by the wind coming In from an open window, were Hying through the office, burning fire brands which ate holes through the ex pensive rugs wherever they lit. One leg of the secretary's chair was burned Off. tha while of one side of her desk was blackered and charred and the wastepaper basket had been entirely consumed. There waa no time to be lost, and the secretary, without sounding an alarm. grabbed a couple of oil rugs and smothered the fire before It had gotten a hold of the woodwork of the building Itself Then fthe Tells the Mayor. Miss Malone then told the mayor what had happened, but, contrary to all pre cedent, she did not faint. While the outer office In Mayor Dahl man's corner of the third floor of the city building Is decorated with charred embers and burned carpets, his Inner of fice presents a gala scene. The Inclemency of the weather deterred the custodian from flying to the breeze the new city flag, and this, therefore, draped across one side of the executive's office, over his desk. Then on his desks were placed several large bouqueta of flowers sent by friends with congrstulatlons and well wishes for an other three-year term. Red roses pre dominated In these bouquets, the mayor's preference to this color and this flower being known. Mayor Dahlman was not the only city official who was given flrwers Monday, however, for when the council convened at 3 o'clock In the afternoon the six repub lican members found on their desks large boquets with congratulatory messages from the Central Republican club. The club also sent a boquet to City Engineer Craig. The new city officials trok hold Monday morning, though all of those holding ex ecutive positions, with the exception of city engineer, are holdovers. Each walked Into his respective office, shook hands with the former Incumbent (himself), made his ap pointments for the term, and resumed work Just as though nothing had happened. o Changre for Cralar Now. City Engineer Craig will make no changes In his office at present, but In the other elective offices clerk, comptroller, attorney and building inspector the present forces have been reappointed with only one ex ception.
