WILL VETO R. R. BILL UNION MEN CONTEND THE BILL DOES NOT GIVE SQUARE DEAL. |Pashington, D. C., Feb. S4.—~The railroad union men today are confi dent that President Wilson will veto the Esch-Cummins railroad bill. The measure was passed by the senate late yesterday by a vote of 47 to 17 and was sent to the president today. It passed the house last Saturday. Rail road union men's confidence of a presidential veto is based upon what they interpret as promises of a square deal made by the president last sum mer when he asked them to postpone pressing their wage demands pending the result of" government effort to bring down the high prices. The union men contend that the labor sec tion of the Esch-Cummins bill does not give them a square deal. What action President Wilson will take probably will be influenced by Rail road Director Hines. THE Miclir WARRANTS OF ARREST ISSUED FOR LOCAL OFFICIAMk Marquette, Mich., Feb. 24.—J. V.

E PLACE IN AMERICA" THEY MUST BE ELIMINATED SAYS VICE PRESIDENT. New York, Feb. 24. —Personal suc cess as an element of American citi tenship should be subordinated to the common gcod, declared Vice Pres ident Thomas R. Marshall at a Wash ington's birthday service held by the Society of Tammany here. Com menting on the declaration of Jeffer son that all men are entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, Mr. Marshall said that liberty and life have a different meaning than they had even 50 years ago. "Life consists in somebody having some good thought for his fellow man," the vice president continued, "and death will come to the man who goes about his business, piling up his money and giving no thought to the good of those about him." He added: "Jefferson, you will notice, did not say a man has a right to happiness. Oh. no he knew most of us might get married. Jefferson was not going to give any guarantee." Americans should be Americans in reality and not in name only, Mr. Marshall said. "I am tired of the hyphenated American," he continued. "It cost an awful lot to get rid of the German-American hyphen. We can get rid of the other hyphens by edu cation and enlightenment." The man who does not believe in God was classed by the vice presi dent as a menace to the country. "We Uhould remember the advice of Wash ington that a country cannot get along wihout morality, and we cannot have morality without we have relig ion," he said. "A man is either re ligious or superstitious. For my part I had rather believe in the living God than in the fqafc a grave yard rabbit.** Compensation Cast Won By Plaintiff Webster, Feb.

TION WITH CROSSING ON it .... J! WEAKENED I(fe^ Yankton, Feb. 24.—It is not neces sary to leave Yankton at present to enjoy real full-sized thrills as a loop the loop fully as dangerous and full of thrills as ev«r was devised by an amusement company for an admiring audience, can be seen at the Missouri river. 1 The performance, which Is contin uous, is being staged just east of where the ferryboat the "Josle L. K." is being repaired, ready for the wa ter when the river opens up. I About 50 feet east of where the river "blew up" recently is a road across the ice. It Is called a "road" by courtesy, so that this story can be made clear. At the Dakota end cars that negotiate the entrance to the i road go over a series of bumps that make all on board hang on for dear' life. Then comes a smooth shoot out on the ice. This part of the shoot has to be done quickly or the vehicle will disappear beneath winter's icy em- i brace of Old Muddy. With a wild abandon the driver plunges forward. He looks death in the eye in the first few seconds and keeps winking at the Grim Reaper 1 all the way across. Several times the car will hit water on the ice ami: send it flying 15 feet. The sight sometimes suggests a yacht race and at other times one is reminded of "What fools these mor tals be," and other classic sayings expressing the same thought. Just why people will do this sort of thin?,r in the face of several tragedies al ready reported on the Missoi)ri one does not quite know. Perhaps the great war has trained folks to indifference to danger, but it is more likely "durned fool crazi ness." A number of cars with women folks on board, sometimes a whole family, hit this dangerous shoot. Two cross ings have been worked out on the ice "Y" shape and passengers for Ne braska take their choice of the left or right arm of this "Y." From the ferryboat the spectacle is highly interesting ,as bets were made whether the last car attempting the crossing would make it or "go be low." Not many Yankton people would care to walk out where these autos were passing. It is a thrill, all ftUffet, to watch the dangerous sport.
