HITCHCOCK RAPS TOBACCO.
Washington. — That the tobacco
trust, instead of being dissolved by
the decree of the supreme court of
the United States has increased its
monopolistic control of tobacco manu
facturers, was asserted in the senate
by Senator Hitchcock, of Nebraska, in
discussing the tobacco schedule.
He declared that the four big con-
cerns manufactured last year 71 3-5
per cent, of all tobacco manufactured
in the United States; that there of
these co-cerns manufactured 90 per
cent, of all the small cigars, and three

not attempt to ahoot aa that would
have been uaeleaa, conaiderlng Ihe aiie
of ihe mob and tha fact that all were
armed with riflea and ahotguna.
"The negroea were taken back to
the public highway cloae to the bridge
and tho ahacklea binding their feet
together were unlocked. They were
turned loose and promlacloua shooting
followed, to which I was a witness.
"One of the negroes. Ralston, waa
allot and fell immedlate'ly, the other,
Franklin, ran for about one hundred
yards, receiving wounds but keeping
on bin feet. He was caught and
brought back beside the other and
when th> next shots were fired he fell
dead within two feet of his compan-
ion's body. Believing them both dead
the mob departed quietly.
"1 stayed near tho bodies and soon
discovered that one of them was un-
conscious, but breathigg. He lived
until after 9 o'clock. About 9:30
o'clock I had the bodies moved into
Paul's Valley for the inquest.

Los Angeles Wins Templar Meeting.
Denver, Colo.—With the election of
grand encampment officers, conclusion
of drilling contests and the selection
of Los Angeles as the next conclave
city, the thirty-second triennial con
clave Knights Templar came to an
end when the knifrhts and their ladies
left the grand ball given them In the
Auditorium. Practically the only con-
test waa in the selection of grand
junior warden, which was won by W.
H. Norria. of Manchester. Iowa, on the
black limousine which trailed it paBt
the asylum gate. The police have the
descriptions of Thaw's confederates
and the names under which they reg-
istered at a local hotel.
The hospital authorities believed
that Thaw had fled to the shore of
Long Island sound and boarded a
yacht waiting with steam up to rush
A reward of $500 for Thaw's appre-
hension has been offered by Dr. S. F.
C. Keib, superintendent of thee
asylum. Howard H. Barnum, the at-
tendant at the gate past whom Thaw
flashed in his break for freedom, is
under arrest and other arrests are ex-
pected to follow in the investigation
begun by Dr. Keib.
Terror Seizes Wife.
New York.—Evelyn Nesbit Thaw, al-
ways fearful of her husband, has
showed her terror to a marked degree
on learning that he was at liberty.
Her mother. Mrs. Charles J. Holman.
was frightened even more than she
and urged Mrs. Thaw to go into se-
clusion until Thaw is found.
Harry has threatened to kill me,"
Mrs. Thaw said, "and I believe my
presence in New York prompted him
to escape. Four years ago he told me,
1 suppose I'll have to kill you next.'
Many men will have cause for fear
now that he is free. He considers Dr.
Austin Flint his worst enemy and un-
doubtedly will try to make trouble for
Appearance of Farmers.
"Most of the members of the mob
wore handkerchiefs over their faces
with holes cut for the eyes. Some had
other cloths with which they con
cealed their features. The majority
wore overalls and their general ap-
pearance indicated that they were
farmers probably from the Hennepin
neighborhood where Airington lived,
which is in the extreme southern part
of Garvin county. I do not believe
that many citizens living in or near
Pauls Valley were connected with th$
An inquest was held over the bodies
of the negroes, the coroner's jury find-

followed his visit to the farm of Ral-
ston. The negro stated that on previ-
ous occasions boys had stolen his
melons and he believed Vanness was
there for the same purpose. Without
questioning the boy the negro opened

Under the proposed plan two town-
ships would be taken from Washing-
ton; a part of Rogers county and
also a part of Tulsa county, which
would include Skiatook, and that sec-
tion of Tulsa county is one of the
wealthiest sections of the county.
The southern part of Washington
county would be part of the new
county, according to the plan. This,
it is said, would give the tentative
county the required population as well
the necessary area. Collinsville
wants to be the county seat and as
an inducement has offered a free site
for a courthouse, besides guarantee-
ing a large sum of money.
Residents of Ramona and Vera de-
clare they have been "goats" long

case the United States refused to
recognize the republic.
Conservative Mexicans, however,
are unwilling to believe that even the
severance of diplomatic relations and
Mexico's defiant attitude will proVoke
the United States beyond forbearance.
The American communication, pre-
sented by John Lind, appealing for a
suspension of hostilities and a con-
stitutional election together with the
emphatic statement that under no cir-
cumstances could the United States
recognize the Huerta regime because
it was set up by irregular force in-
stead of constitutional order, has been'

AN OLD NURSE
Persuaded Doctor to Drink Postum.-
An old faithful nurse and an exper-
ienced doctor, are a pretty strong com-
bination in favor of Postum, instead*
of tea and coffee.
The doctor said:
"I began to drink Postum five years-
ago on the advice of an old nurse.
"During an unusually busy winter,,
between coffee, tea and overwork, I
became a victim of insomnia. In a.
