McDougall pluycd her accompaniments on tho bag pipes, and also played a solo on tho na tional Instrument. IS. D. Challlnor played tho piano to accompany the singers. That the celebratlqn was aoutely Scotch Is illustrated by the reception given James 12. Carnal, when In an nouncing tho namo of his encore, ha ex plained that he would sing It to a tune composed by an Englishman, as he did not knpw the original Scotch melody. Whispers of disapproval and even ex clamations of disgust swept over the au dience. However, as the vocalist sang the words of tho pleco which was "Bluo Bonnets Over the Border," the clansmen forgave the English tune and willingly applauded tho Scottish words and singer. Clansman Kenneth Flntayson was the orator of the ovenlng and delivered an address on "Scotland's Darling." He told of Burns' life and works and praised tho poet highly for his many noble verses, including "Tho Cotter's Saturday Night."

Representative Clayton has called a meeting of tho Judiciary committee to morrow to determine upon a course of procedure. When the democrats of tho senate Interstate commerce committee met today to discuss tho subject, the sug gestion was made that hearings should bo conducted jointly by houso and senate committees In order to expedite hearings of the bills.

With two committees in the house al ready engaged In preliminary considera tion of tho subject and with the prospect of another division of Jurisdiction be tween the senate Judiciary and Interstate commerce committees It was pointed out that Joint hearings could not be con ducted without considerable difficulty.

Members of both committees after dis cussing the question of making the bills party measures through caucus action ex pressed the hopo that It would not bo necessary to handle them In this way, as was done with the tariff and currency bills. In this' connection, Senator New lands, polntod out that all minority members would be given an opportunity to participate In deliberations on the bill at hearings and through consultation with the committees. Another Joint conference of the house and senate committees will be held to morrow. Nebraska Woman Ends Life Because Can't Love Husband CHICAGO, Jan. 21. (Special Telegram.)

FOLLOWS HER WITH DEMANDS Inalata that She Live with Itlm and Plnna-ea Knife Into Her When She Refnaea Given Aid ly the Police. (From a Staff Correspondent) DES MOINES, la., Jan. 21 (Special TelcgramO-Stabbed by her husband when sho rofused to withdraw a dlvorco action against him, Mrs. Mike McCuo staggered to tho pollco station where sho filed a charge of assault with intent to murder against him. Then she nearly collapsed and was attended by police surgeons'. Tho stabbing occurred on the fourth floor of tho Iowa Loan and Trust build lng. McCue, she alleges, followed her from her work and demanded that she llvo with him. She refused. He then ordered her to drop her suit against him. Again she refused. With that the man drew a knife from his pocket and leaped toward her. The blade struck her In tho .breast and on tho left hand. She reeled and then ran screaming from the building. McCuo fol lowed and was seized and held by passing pedestrians. The police arrested him. Mrs. McCuo then went to the central station. It was found that the wound In her breast was not serious. Illll of LadliiK Reform Asaarcd. Judge Henderson, commerce counsel, on his return from Chicago and Washington, announced that a very satisfactory con clusion has been reached as between ship pers and the railroads for a material ohange in the uniform bill of lading with regard to the time limit for filing claims The present time limit is four months for domestlo and thirty days for export ship ments. But for years little attention has ben paid to the time limit, until recently when, under court decision, It has seomd to be necessary to do so. As a result many shippers, and a large number In Iowa, have been emborossed by finding their claims disposed of for lack of fail ure tQ file within the time limit. Now It Is agreed, first, that tho export and (domestic time limit shall be tho same; second, that at least six months be iven as the uniform time limit, and, third, that as to the pending claims barred by the limit all shall be considered that are filed prior to April 1 next. This affects shippers over the country and thousands of claims which are now held up, Tho commerce counsel has received In recent months a great many Inquiries as to these barred claims Indicating that Iowa shippers stood to lose heavily unless this agreement was made. It will be tor the Interstate Commerce commission, how ever, to havo tho lost word on the sub' ject Thome Candidate Airnln. Clifford Thorne, present chairman ot the Iowa railroad commission, today se cured blanks for nomination papers as a candidate for railroad commissioner to succeed himself. He has at no time been in any doubt as to asking a second term but had refrained from taking action un til now. It Is probable he will not be op posed. His great success In the matter of adjusting freight rates for Iowa people, with which the Iowa commission has been concerned the past year, has given him the active support of all tho com mercial Interests of the state. John R. Carter, Sioux City, has taken out papers as a candidate for district Judge. May nelocate Epileptic Colony. The failure of the owners of tho Flynn farm near Des Moines to make good on the conditions which the State Board ot Control Imposed makes It almost certain that the whole subject ot the location will be reopened. ' One of tho conditions was that a guaranty be made that the Interurban line from Des Moines be ex tended to the farm and a station be es tablished -on the farm. Ono branch ot tho Interurban runs In the direction of the farm and could easily be extended, but the owners ot the Interurban are the same as the owners of tho city street railway and they Insist they will not make any promise as to the extension until they are also assured of a fran chise for operating their street cars In Des Moines. Under the circumstances. unless Individuals Interested will make the guaranty ot a trolley line to the farm, the state will probably go elsewhere for an eplleptlo colony farm. The price to be paid for the farm Is $200,000. The" Mil waukee railroad will build a station on the farm, as It has two tracks leading there. Frand tn Land Sale Not Upheld. The supreme court refused to uphold a fraud In a land "deal by which an Iowa farmer lost on a trado for Kansas land. The plaintiff In the case had owned 2S0 acres tn Davis county worth HO an acre, which he traded for 240 In Kansas at the price of $20 an acre. It was shown on the trial that the land which he got was not the farm which was shown to htm, and that the land which he got was only worth about $2. GO an acre. The court awarded him JS.W0 for the fraud and the supreme court upheld this agreement. Suffrage Leaders to lie Schooled.

The price of Iowa corn during the year of 1915 will depend on a decision of the Interstate Commerce commission, accord ing to E. M. Wentworth. agent ot the Pennsylvania railroad company. Mr. Wentworth based his belief on the. fact that prominent Iowa com dealers and manufacturers have appeared before this body by representatives asking for a reduction of the westbound rute on corn from the seaboard to Mississippi river points. Should this request be granted Argentine corn could be laid down to the Iowa grain elevators at a price less than the dealers have to pay the Iowa farmers. Definite action upon this request will be taken up by the commission about the middle of March.
