they used in purchasing the whiskey,
the police force Wednesday night cap
tured four, negro men and a colored wo
man who weire engaged in the selling f
"whiskey and also secured several gal
lons of the product they were dispensing;-.":..
Several days ago the members of the
police force decided that thejL would
secure a detective to secure evjdence
against several ; "blind, tigers" which
they were almost pertain were in oper
ation. With tbis 'e.nd in view Mr. J.
E. Eason and Mr. H.' D. Irving, two
young men who Were employed in the
Norfolk-Southern shops in this" city
were engaged to discover where whiskey
was being sold in- this city, These
young men worked diligently and to so
much advantage that the police decided
to raid the places . at which they had
purchased whiskey. " - 'J : . v, ' ; '
The strictest 'secrecy was observed in
this matter and but few knew of the in
tended proceeding . and it was quite a
surprise when the officers marched their
prisoners down to the city hall late
Wednesday night, Annie Taylor, Ed.
Moore. Matthew Williams, John Farlow
and Nathan Williams, all colored, were
the names of the alleged dealers. ...
Yesterday afternoon they were given
a hearing before Mayor McCarthy and
although each of them plead not guilty,7
probable cause was found and they
were bound over to the next term of
Superior Court under bonds of $150

On the names of each of the warrants
that were issued the name of "John

nection with several other "blind tig

much speculation,, appeared, and before
the two gentlemen who had - assisted
the officers in their work had made their
appearance at the trial there was again
-considers! speculation as to who -"John
Doe" was. Several other places where
the two gentlemen had purchased whis
key during the past few weeks were

Spanish Branches Active. i
London. April 28th.A dispatch re
ceived from Corfu by the Dalziel News
Agency says that while the Kaiser's
yacht, Hoherwollern,- with th Emperor
on board," was cruising off that port 3
rifle shots were fired at it.
The bullets whistled Over the Imperi
al cabin, according to this report, and
caused excitement among the members
of his Majesty's sui. Although the
ispatch says the outrage is attributed
to disaff ectt d Greeks, diplomats are at
a loss to understand why Greeks should
be displeased with the Kaiser. -
At the German embassy it was said
that ev v ry effort is being made to se
cure particulars of the outrage. There
is a feeling there that the firing may
have been part of an anarchistic plot.
It is known that the anarchists, especi
ally the Italian and Spanish branches
have been very active lately. Because
of the belief that they are plotting an
ittempt at wholesale assassination to
mar the coronation of King George, the
police of England and all of the Conti
nental countries have recently been
All known anarchistic chiefs are be
ing subjected to the closest espionage.
Because of this fact, and 'because of
the intense activity of the Berlin police
in searching the haunts of the anarch
ists, it was said the outrage might be
due to German anarchists.
The Kaiser planned to remain in the
Mediterranean for ten days longer, but
whether this reported incident will re
sult in his changing his plans cannot be
learned at present.
Attempts To Take His Life.
While under the influence of a'cohol

tar. Ferdinand Ulrich, who resides at

number of grains of bichloride of

physician began work on him a few
minutes after he committed this rash
act he would doubtless now be a corpse,

Four Robbers in Stolen Auto Bind
Nine . and Make
Chicago, April 28 Four armed men
planned with great skill and executed
with success a $20,000 jewelry robbery
The victims are Albert! Sr.. proprietor
of the shop at No. 1246 Milwaukee ave
nue and Norman Strauss of Newark,
N. J,, representing Strauss & Strauss,
dealers in jewelry. In carrying out
their plan the thieves captured and
bound nine persons, and escaped with
their pluoder in a stolen limousine.
Before daylight, the Crexel garage,
seven miles from the scene, was called
by telephone and ordered to send an
automobile to a flat in the Ridgewood
Building. While the chauffeur was in
the building looking up his supposed pat
ron, the machine was stolen.
It was 10:30 a. m, when it drove up
to the Milwaukee avenue shop. Strauss
was displaying his samples. Edward
Albert', son of the proprietor, Samuel
Schmidt, Mr. Strauss and a boy as
sistant were there in the place.
Three men entsred with revolvers.
Those in the store were compelled to go
into a back room, where two of the
robbers tied them with ropes which
they had brought with them. Edward
Alberti, the proprietor, and his wife,
who lived over the store, hearing a
commotion, descended. The robbere
drove Alberti and his wife at a run into
the rear room, forced them to lie face
downward on the floor and bound thera
Next some miscellaneous errand boys
were roped. While one of the robbers
orked on the saf e two plundered the
Newark salesman and the store. The
safe yielded $500. StrauBs lost $10,000,
mostly in diamonds, and Alberti's los s
was of equal amount
After the robbery the men entered
the machine and were driven away by
the man at the wheel. He had remain
ed at his post during the activities in

abandoned on the North Shore road,

Reapportionment Measure Similar
to Crumpacker Bill Adopted
Washington, April 29 The bill. for
the apportionment of Representatives
Congress among the several States
under the thirteenth census passed the
House without a dissenting vote. Sev
eral elf arts were made to amend it, but
it went through as introduced.
The bill provides for 433 members in
stead of 391, as at present, and two ad
ditional members should Arizona and
New Mexico become States. Under this
bill these States make gains in the num
ber of Reoresentatives;
Alabama, 1; California. 3. Colorado,
1: Florida, 1; Georgia, 1; Idaho, 1; . Illi
nois, z; Louisiana, l; Massachusetts, i;
Michigan, 1; Minnesota, 1; Montana, !;
New Jersey, 2; New York. 6; North
Dakota, 1; Ohio, 1: Oklahoma, 3; Ore
gon, 1; Pennsylvania, 4; Khode Island,
1; South Dakota, 1: Utah, 1; West Vir
ginia, 1; Texas, 2; Washington, A
The proposed size of the House is
identical with that provided for in the
Crumpacker bill passed by the House at
the last session of Congress, but not
acted upon by the Senate. The Houston
bill, passed leaves to the legislatures of
the different States the power to rear
range the Congressional districts on the
new population basis of one member for
each 211,877 of inhabitants.
The two important amendments pro
posed and defeated after lengthy debate
were to put the redisricting power in
the hands of the Governors of States,
when legislatures had failed to act; and
to limit the House in the future to a
membership of 640, leaving future re
apportionments to the Secretary of
Commerce and Labor. Both were de
nounced as Republican Betimes.
Caleb Powers of Kentucky moved to
amend the bill so aa to prevent any
State from having one district more
than 20,000 greater in population than
another H said that in his State one
district was 115,000 larger than another.
rhis was defeated, 107 to 66. Then Mr.
Powera followed with amendments for
50.000 and 75,000, they failed.

The Danger of Going Barefooted.
As the season is now approaching
when all the children desire to go bare
footed, it is well that they should be
warned that this pleasure does not
come without danger, until recent
years we attached little importance to
ground itch, or toe-itch, so commonly
seen among barefooted children who go
about in the dew or other dump places.
We now know ground itch is the initial
sympton of hookworm disease and that
it would not develop unless the soil bad
been polluted by sufferers from the dis
ease. The myriads of eggs passing
daily along with the excreta from their
bodies develop into tiny microscopic
worms too small to be seen. These,
when allowed to come in contract with
the skin, burrow through producing an
attack of ground-itch. The truth of
this assertion can be easily proved by
making a poultice of polluted soil and
applying it for a few hours to some part
of the body. Always at the site of such
poultice there developea the ground-
itch -rash if there be a sufficient number
of worms entering the Bkin. -.
Moreover, it is known that about
fifty days after the attack of ground
itch the little worn.s that entered the
skin will have found their way to the
small intestine and there developed to a
size sufficient for them to be easily seen
with the naked eye. They are nearly
one-half Inch in length. Ths medicine
given to get rid of them, by acting as
a poison, causes them to be expelled
from the body. By washing the stools
through cheese cloth they msy be col
lected. !.' -' " "
The harm they produce is now well
recognized to require discussion at this
time. Suffices it to say that the blood
is sapped, the body stunted, the vitality
lowered. Thus, the life and happiness!
of those dearest to us may be blasted. I
It is now time every one should Know

For Th's County's Proposed Ar

Universal Peace. ,
( London; April 29 London's answer
to President Taft's proposal for an ar
bitration agreement between England

approval of the proposal.

The Premier expressed the hope that
still greater things than the Anglo
American compact might follow the
action of these two counties.
"While not wishing to preach or dic
tate to other nations,' he said, "I am
sure the Anglo-American agreement
against war will be a long step toward
the progress of humanity the world
over. It is not too much to hope that
this is the entering wedge to universal

sary for me to Bay that the proposed

of mankind. It is not even an offensive
and defensive alliance, but an agree
ment that simply rules out war over a
. Other speakers, including Conserva
tive Leader Balfour, followed the
Premier, at the conclusion of which the
Premier moved the following resolution
which was adopted amid scenes of the
greatest enthusiasm; '
"That this meeting of citizens of
London cordially welcomes the proposal
of the President of the United Slates in
favor of a general treaty of arbitration
between that country and the British
Empire and pledges its support to the
principlea of such a treaty as serving
the highest interest of the two nations
and as tending to promote the peace of
the world." '
In seconding the resolution Premier
Balfour said he was convinced that pub-
lie opinion in both England and Ameri

make and then break such an agree
ment, he said, would be a damaging
blow to civilization for generations to
