Told of the Many Things; Made of Flax and Showed j Lantern Slides Mattresses, comforts and all sorts of home comforts will soon be manufac-j tured from the products of flax, ac cording to J. Sidney Starling, presi dent and treasurer of the Flaxen Fibre j Down Co. of North Tonawanda, -N . it., who addressed the Commercial clubi last evening. j In making his statements as to mw .nua ortt'.'liia that, pan he made from flax, which also included several kinds of paper, twines, coarse yarns, uucj and substitutes for cotton batting, Mr. storiinu Tins inst tpllins of what his New York factory had been doing. His factory is somewnar. uurereiuj frnm rt hnro from the fact that he has 'a process of retting flax green, by spe-; cial machinery ana noi uy uc , words, tho flax is not retted at all but the fiber is sep arated from the stem Dy niacuuicij and it is the flax from this process that Mr. Starling's factory has been manufacturing into commercial com modities. !

LAY FOUNDATION JUMPING PIES Speculators Cry Food Short age Preparatory to Cinch ing Public Chicago, March 30. The food supply of the ration ia in danger was the ery in Chicago meat and grain markets to day. Alarming reports poured into the market today from the great winter wheat fields of Kansas and Nebraska. They told of drought and the plowing up of thousands of acres of winter wheat. May wheat opened at $1.98 on the board of trade today, a slight recession from yesterday, but with that excep tion the bigVt in history. Cash wheat of high grade was quoted at $2.15 to $2.2.) with not enough offered to estab lish a market. May corn opened at $1.19 7-8. Cash corn was running well with the May futures. May oats wore selling at 62 and 7-8 with cash oats ranging to 65 cents. Live hogs on the hoof at the stock yards today sold as high as $15.55 per hundred pounds, a jump of 25 cents over yesterday and an advance of 40 cents in the past two days, tho record of all time. Wholesale and retail prices, arc fol lowing hogs. Dollar eighteen corn means $15.50 pork, dealers said. Choice beef steers today sold at $12.90 per hundred pounds. Sheep were firm at $12.35 per hundred. Say Labor Is Short. Reports received by the United Press from its bureaus in Kansas City, Mo., and Lincoln, Neb. confirmed statements in the Chicago pit. Another grave menace to the nation's food was tho fact that the labor short age, already acute, is made critical by the calling out of the national guard in the agricultural states. A conserva tive estimate today was that the pres ent national guard calt would take 30, 000 men from the strictly agricultural states, in addition to those joining the regular army and navy. This figures the regiments called at war strength. These men are the cream of tho able bodied workers. Farmers hesitate to Increase acreage in the face of certain labor famine. The high price of all seeds is also threatening disaster. State agricul tural societies and officials are co operating on tho seed question and ad vancing seed to farmers unable to buy on tho market. The demand still is greater than the visible supply. No way has so far been devised to meet the farm labor problem. The great pocking houses and steel mills around Chicago are bringing tens of thousands of negroes from the south to meet the labor shortage, which in torn is injuring the labor supply of the southern states. Tentative suggestions from the west have been made of importing Chinese laborers. HOLIDAY FOR LAUNCHING Portland, Ore., Mar- 29. Mayor Al beo today proclaimed Saturday after noon a half holiday so the city can cele brate the launching of the steel steamer Vesterline at the Northwest Steel com pany's plant. Sell it the Journal Want Ad Way. A Fine "Yes, it was a big Flemish oak rocker with high back, and must have cost eight to ten dollars. "Then a big dresser went for $3.00, and there were so many other things just as cheap why, I saved enough so I bought a lot of things I couldn't have afforded any other way." That's a sample of what you will 1 ear about our auction sale of the McPeek stock of new and used furniture at 271 North Commercial street. Just to show you how things are going, dealers took away one piece after another and they expect to sell them and make a profit so the people who buy are getting the goods at less than wholesale prices of today.

' r ATTORNEY'S FIGHTING TO GET THAW:S MONEY If they Can Get Him to New York It Will Be Like Im porting Gold Mine Philadelphia, March 30. That Har ry K. Thaw who lias been adjudged in sane by a Pennsylvania sanity com mission personally conducted his own snnity proceeding was the claim of As sistant District Attorney Black of New York, here today. He made appeal be fore Attorney General Francis Shunk Brown to have Thaw extradited to New York to stand trial for assault on Fred Gump, Jr. a Kansas City youth, in the Hotel McAlpin, in January. "Insanity has never been held as a cause to prohibit extradition," Black added. ri No decision is "anticipated on the hearing this afternoon, as indications were that arguments will continue very late. It is thought a decision will tjo iriiiimruniy wunneiu. Scathing attacks were made on the Thaw family for using vast sums to de feat the ends of justice, included ifi the arguments of Assistant District Attor ney Black. "The justice of two states is on trial in this case," said Black. "There is a question in tho public mind as to which is stronger in Pennsylvania, the laws, or the Thaws." . .! "The history of thaw " Black con tinued, "shows that he can come to life 'civilly' whenever it suits. When it suits him to die, ho become a very dead man." "A jury at the second triul of Thaw in the Stanford White case,'" said Deputy Attorney General Alfred L. Becker of New York, who also argued tho case today, "was asked to believe that Thaw was insaDe. Another high priced group of alienists testified at three subsequent habeas corpus pro ceedings that Thaw was sane and suc ceeded in convincing the jury of it. "And now,'' he shouted, "a lunacy commission decides he is insane after all." O ak Rocke'f TA u m. will SUNDAY: at COME EARLY FIVETRUE BILLS Two Arraigned Plead Guilty F. A.

Mrs- ' Stella Newton Moore Smith, slayer of her chauffeur husband, John Lawrence Smith, was freed of a chargo of murder by a jury in exactly one hnd one-half minutes this afternoon, as tho termina tion of Colorado's most sensational murder tril, which lusted 21 days. The public was exoluded from the court room when Mrs. Smith testified. Her sordid story of love, hate, jealousy, passion and criminal degeneracy con vinced the 12 men who judged her that he was justified in killing tho man who, according to her testimony, had ruined her life. Mrs. Smith, former society leader, was divorced from her first' husband, AYilliam A. Moore, Denver attorney, four years ago. Sho did not contest his application for divorce, charging deser tion. Shortly afterward she married Smith, who had been her stepfather's chauffeur, at Yreka, Cal. Then begnn a four year period of debauchery and sordidness, which extended acros the continent from California to Detroit, finally ending in Denver. Atrs- bnnth, who is wealthy, left Smith and camo to her home here in January. Smith followed, when he at tempted to force her to nameless do generate acts', and threatened to Hp. bauch her 12 year old daughter by her rormer nusiiaiio-, she testified she shot and killed him. Officers who went to the home after the killing found Smith's dend body ou the floor, while Mrs. Smith, her body covered with bruises, sat in a chair and over and over expressed her happiness that Smith was dead.

The president baa practically com pleted his "war message" to b deliv ered to tho forthcoming congress. Tho tentative draft was discussed in detail today by the cabinet. It met with unanimous approval. No cabinet member would say specif ically what tho president would recom mend, but tho intimation was carried generally that congress will be asked, by tho president to declare a state of war exists despite this government's efforts along opposite lines, and to prepnro to meet acts of aggression by Germany in such a manner that a last ing peace may be brought about ;uid soon. Nearly an hour after the cabinet ad journed, white house authorities let it bo known that the war situation iH en tirely "shaped." President Wilson has reached his full decision and this decision means n state of war. In fact, so completely were the pres ident and his cabinet ugreed that they even found timo to dispose of matters of a strictly routine nature; alter de ciding the international question. Tim white house also let it be known that mat torsi aro entirely "satisfac tory," and this means that the decis ion is as staled, that the president's mind is made up, that it is firm against, (crmnny, and that a statu of war will bo the next step in the international situation.
