Cox. Root according to Cox's advices, believes It inadvisable to form a new association of nations, or to try to remodel the Hague trib unal. Mr. Cox was watching the situation closely, and expected soon to emphasize that the international court, which Mr. Root organized, is part of the League of Nations and cannot be constructed as Harding's proposal for a remodelled tribunal.

Aberdeen, Sept. Jf^Ul thai Is necessary to send the cold shivers down the hack of a transient work ing man is to say 'high jack' to him," is the claim of Acting Chief of Po lice, Reese Price. "A 'high Jack* Is*the man ivho lays in wait for the laboring man and robs him of any earthly posses sions that he may have at the end of his summer's work. The 'high •Jack' loafs about town where, he thinks, the laborers will come to buy their necessities after having been paid off for their labors, If they are not careful Mr. 'High Jack' gets their money, either through card games or by an outright holdup X, staged in some dark street or alley. /''r\ "In Aberdeen there was a case of 'high packing' on a Milwaukee coach while the laboring man was 'riding .. the cushions.' "I talk with that class of laborers every day in Aberdeen and each one of them expresses his fear' for the "highjack.' They do not hesitate to *^do bodily harm to their victims if .^, !th«y do not give up their earnings. Mc "My suggestion is that the 'high jackers' be high-jacked first. By *,f that I mean that the laborers must protect themselves in the same way that the 'high jack' protects him self, If violence is offered, return it. j-' -i. t\£"» fa i: u •''ijV- M"'4 *1 have even gone so far as to say that if a man attempted to "high jack' me, I'd organize a mob of my v* friends and catch the offender and then hang him to a telephone post yhis thumbs until he realized that I worked for my money and that it was mine. The 'high jack' will sooi^ realize that he is not at all essential to the laborer if they 'treat him rough'for a time."

This is the advice tendered by the heads of varieus employment agencies to the wage earner and salaried man. It is the product of new labor conditions in the Chicago district—conditions which already have produced a surplus of job hunters and which threaten to bring about unemployment on a large scale before the end of the winter. For the first time since the be ginning ot the war period there are more men looking for jobs than there are jobs to give them. The situation became noticeable .about two weeks ago and has become more so each day. The Iillinois state fi*e employ ment bureau -is having1 twice as many applicants for jobs every day as it was having two months ago. "The rock bottom fact of the mat ter," said W. C. Starkey, chief clerk at the bureau, "is that there are more men looking for work and fewer and fewer jobs. Thkt Ur not a seasonal slacking. It is due, as far as I can make out, to a shutting off of production—a result of the fact that the public is not buying. War-time savings are exhausted and retrenchment is taking the piace of extravagance. "It is the same way I* other trades and businesses thai the building trades industt *e cost of building just now m: /or high rents. People cannot or will not pay the rents, so building is vir tually at a standstill. This is just one example of a process that seems, to be working out all through the Industry in Chicago district." At the International Employment: ftgency, a private con#ern with of fices at 30% South Canal street, the same situation was admitted, but it was attributed to different causes. "There are certainly more idle men than there have been in years," said J. H. Engle, manager of the agency, "but I can't say it is all due to lack of production. We have lots of jobs which we are unable to fill simply because the men don't want to work. Why? Well, I might de scribe it as 4he general unrest. A big, strapping fellow that looked like he'd worked every day in his life turned down a good western job yesterday. I asked him why. "Aw, he said, 'what's the use! I've got money enough to eat and sleep for a while, so I'm not going to work unless the job looks real good. Have you got anything south?' "That's typical of a lot of others. It's a serious situation." At Armour A Co., packers, the employment manager reported a de cided increase in the number of job hunters during the past two weeks. "I think it's partly seasonal," he said, "but there is no question that the worst part of the labor shortage is over. We still are able to put on new men, if they look good, b\jt we are not hiring all comers as we'were a couple of months ago. Then we had to take good and bad alik now we can grade them out tice, too, thil the people who have got jobs don't seem so ready to quit them as they were. What's more, it looks as though the whole labor sit uation is going to get steadily bet ter during the next few^nonths-". "That is to say, there will be more men hunting for jobs?" "That's it," said the employment manager. V- alike I no- Worried fey Com V munistic Activities Berlin, 8ept. 22,-—Communistic activities held the attention of wor ried government offcials today.

Swenk who is s ing the Methodist pulpit until onference time preached a sermon all ^f con solation to the bereaving fanuly and relatives. The text taken from Psalms 10 3-13, expressed the pity ing love of the Master for his weak ones. It read: "Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pit let li them that fear him." The deceased ^iad expressed a de sire to join the church in the early stage of his illness. It was not until he lay in a hospital sick unto death, that the wish was gratified. Besides the family and immediate relatives a number of rail road'men, close personal friends of the deceas ed, were in attendance as a mark of respect.

BARLOW AT mtiH SCHOOL AUDI TORIUM. Mr. Barlow used the high school auditorium last evening, instead of a room in the court house in which to discuss publicly current political issues as they are understood by the farmer-labor party. Mr. Barlow is an ex-service man who, during the war, was connected with the airplane service. Speaking of his own knowledge of the manner in which the airplane service w#s managed, he scathingly criticised jwliat he termed mismanagement of that branch of those in charge and reminded his hearers that $840,000, 000 had been wantonly squandered on an abortive effort of airplane production. He bitterly denounced thgse who classed l^is party with thej radicals. He said, that his political! mission lay in cleaning up dirty pol itics. The statement that President Wilson and Secretary of War Baker knew that the manipulators of high finance were robbing the people and the government of millions of dol lars and did nothing but whitewash the whole matter seemed to pass un challenged. Mr. Barlow is confident of non partisan victory in this state this fall. There was practically no discus sion of either the democrat or the republican platfor^u and but slight mention of nominees Harding or Cox. Less than a hundred person* heard the speech last evening. FROM LUOLMCIWE mm KiiKiii.i mi w Hi EXPLORERS FIND MANY CUR* OUS THINGS IN HARDING commr, Vermillion, Sept. S3.—A sealp lock of a white man, with the leather thong by which it was fast ened to the trophy pole still at tached, was one of the exceedingly valuable relics found by W. H. Over in a thorough exploration of Ludlow cave, in Harding county, this sum mer. Mr. Over, accompanied by an as istant, examined the eave fen the in terests of the state geelogteal sur rey and the state museum at the •,- ,«• illadisoirltloilg MADISON, SOUTH DAKOTA, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22,1920. University of Sout(t' Dakota. They sifted about sixty cubic yards of the dry sand in the bottom of the cave and discovered arrow points, pottery_ fragments, pipes, implements and ornaments of ancient Indian tribes. The earliest were prob^l^y of Man dan origin. This tribe settled in the Dakotas in the thirteenth or four teenth century. The Sioux did not come west of Minnesota until about 1760. Imitations of buffalo tracks, carv ed in the rock by Indians, were found near this cave by Mr. Over and later in the summer he discov ered the same carving near Haunted Butte, in Corson county. It is pos sible that the wanderings of the tribe of Indians in.Aing this carv ing, can be traced in this summer. Near Mobridge the sites of four more Indian villages were discov ered. Five were previously all of them being Arikara settle ments. One of the newly discovered sites is of Mandan origin. A great deal of ethnological material* found here. JULIE! OUT OF LEAVENWORTH AND IN TO SIOUX Sioux Falls, Sept. 22.—Frank Loftus, notorious bank robber, who recently was taken into custody by Sheriff John Nolan, of Brookings county, as fte stepped from the doors of the federal prison at Leaven-* worth, Kan., has been lodged behind^ the bars of the Sioux Falls peniten tiary, where he will serve a term of eight years and nine months for the robbery of bankq at White and Bushnell, Brookings county, in No vember, 1910. Loftus escaped from the Brooke ings county jail nearly ten year ft a no. A few days ago he finished a five-year term in the federal peni-» tentiary at Leavenworth for robbintff?" the postoffice at Coeur D'Alene, Idaho, and found Sheriff Nolan waiting at the prison gate with a warrant for his arrest on a charge from which he escaped punishment ten yfears ago. Four men were implicated in the robbery of the White and Bushnell banks—Loftus, William Forbes, William Reed and James La ton. They visited White first. After blowing the safe they were unable to get into it, so were obliged to leave the town without any loot. At Bushnell they had no better suc cess. The explosion failed to give them access to the cash. Large crowds of people stood in the street and watched them work after being awakened by the explosion. When the crowd gathered the robbers fled. They were trailed through the snow by Sheriff Miles and a posse and finally were overtaken and ar rested at Egan on December 1, 1910. At a term of court in January, 1911, all four pleaded guilty to the charge of burglary. Reed and Laton were given light sentences. Loftus and Forbes, who were regarded as the most dangerous members of the quartet, were given heavier sen tences. Loftus eight years and nine months and Forbes five years and one month. On the night of February 1, 1911, Loftus and Forbes made their es cape from the county jail by in some manner getting out of the cage and sawing a lock off a small door in the steel grating over a window on the west side of the jail. -Hr $ French Radicals Are Active Paris, Sept. 22.—R ad leal groups fn the French assembly today nom inated Raoul Perret and Leon Bourg ois to oppose Miilerand for presi dency. tyrarfeois refused the nom ination.

Nelson, of the local re- known, cruiting office. Lt. Nelson stated that he would gladly fill out the nec i essary blanks for ex-service men, if they would bring their honorable discharge to his office. 1 Any ex-soldier may make applica tion for one of the medals at the re I cruiting office or the American Le gion post. It it not necessary to mail in the honorable discharge. To date only 271,661 medals have been given out, but 4,650,000 men are entitled to receive one. Uncle Sam spent more than $1, 000,000 for these medals. They are made of hard bronze. There goes with the medal a ribbon and on it a bar for every major engagement in which the soldier participated. The largest number of bars is 14, and General Pershing is the only soldier so far fo receive the maximum. o »h BUCiMILERS SWINDLERS FROM IOWA—WILL BE ARRESTED—-FARMEll NEAR LEOLA VICTIM. f* v Jt i 1 $ 'V tl. i. v' v L, A -Two men Aberdeen, SepT. 22. and two women, said to be from Iowa, are reported to have worked an old "blackmail" scheme on jan aged farmer named Cochrane, of Leola, it became known when L. A. Cochrane, son of the victim, came to Aberdeen for aid in locating the alleged blackmailers. According to L. A. Cochrane, the Iowans were guests at a hotel in Le ola at which his father «also lives, and it is said that one of the women in the party went into Mr. Coch rane's room, followed shortly by the "outraged" husband, who demanded $10,000 to sooth his "damaged" feelings. The elder Mr. Cochrane, rather than face a public exposure of the case, is said to have parted with $1, 000 cash and to have given a mort gage on his farm for $9,000. The Iowans departed from Aber deen and L. A. Cochrane followed when he learned of the proceedings. Owing to the fact that the alleged crime was committed in McPherson county, the Brown county author ities were unable to iBsue a warrant for the arrest of the Iowans and they left on a Milwaukee train. Mr. Cochrane said steps would be taken to return the persons accused to South Dakota for arraignment and trial on a charge of blackmail. o ember rve Board Washington, Sept. 22.—Ed Wills of Cleveland, was named a member of the federal reserve board by presi dent Wilson. o Daily Market Report Minneapolis Grain.
