The vessel carried a general cargo and was bound from New York and Norfolk for the Pacific coast via the Panama canal. Sea ISeporled Heavy Belief that the Loyal Citizen had gone dawn with all hands was strengthened when the Independent Wireless company reported that the Denhaag had sighted a capsized lifeboat tossing in the stormy sea at ap proximately the point where the freighter was last heard from. The message from the , Denhaag slated that it was unlikely that any boats were successfully launched from the ship, as the sea was too heavy, Vessel Built in 1906 Two tankers in the same general position, the Lumina and the Fanad- head, reported that they had- been un able to locate the Loyal Citizen, despite a thorough search of surround ing waters.

Northwest consumers with prices no higher and in some cases lower than a year ago, householders found today when they began storming fuel companies for deliveries'. The only inconvenience sighted by dealers today will arise when there is a very cold snap and they aft!' flooded with orders and delivery facilities are overtaxed. Dealers Kept Busy Fuel dealers have been working full time Monday, Tuesday and today filling orders from consumers who failed to lay in a supply of coal during the summer months. Only a comparatively ' small per-i-cntage of consumers, however, are ordering their coal this week, C. A. Bruce, secretary of the Twin City Coal Exchange, Inc., stated today, and when the first real cold snap comes there will be difficulty jn making immediate delivery.

Pigs at 'Works Happy as 'Swilf Y oiler Returns Pork Charmer and Valet de Sty Retrieved ' From Street Workhouse porkers' appetites came back to them today when their, favorite "swill yodler' was restored to duty. He is known on the books as Carl Erickson and. except for brief vacations he is said to have been almost constantly their valet de sty for many years. The municipal swine have been pining for several weeks because their master's voice was missing from the "poeee-ee" chorus. Shotes 'Friend Found But. last eventide the moving hand of fate led somebody to call up the police and report a dead man lying neglected on Tenth avenue N.E. at Marshall street. Patrolman Prank Kalian ankled to the scene and recognized the shotes' guide, philosopher and friend. Erickson was more or less himself again in Judge Clyde R. White's popular municipal court today but when asked how many times he had been to the workhouse was unable to think in such astounding figures. Back to Bacon Bushes "Judge," remarked Kahan, "I am no Methuselah on the police force but I have retrieved this pork charmer half a dozen, times myself." "Back to the bacon bushes," adjudicated the judge and both the sausage-makings and their not so long lost commander-in-chief were satisfied. FEW IOWA ILLITERATES Des Moines, Sept. 15.

Reports at noon today from rescue crews attempting to reach eight men imprisoned 500 feet below the bed of the Missouri river in a tunnel, indicated rescue of the men or recovery of them would not be accomplished before late this afternoon, according to Charles S. Forman, general superintendent of the city water department. Drillers had encountered', heavy falls of rock. Kansas City, Sept. 15. Eight men were trapped in a tunnel under the Missouri river Jiere today when an explosion occurred where workmen were constructing a water-main between Clay county and Jackson county, i All air passages were cut off. The men were working in two crews, driving the shaft from either side, of the river, and the cavein occurred be hind the crew in the north side of the tunnel, imprisoning them between the ground which had not been dug, in approximately the center of the river, and the mass of earth that fell. Rescuers Blocked Chief Engineer Charles B. Forman of the city water department, immediately went into ; the north tunnel with a crew of men and penetrated to the barrier, 2,100 feet in the shaft, before he was blocked. The cavein virtually sealed the por-ton of the tunnel into an airtigfit pocket in which the men are imprisoned. Officials of the Smith Brothers, Inc., who were in charge of the construc tion, expressed doubt that their air supply would last eight men more than a few hours. There is a strong possibility that the men are all dead, either killed by the explosion, which was so powerful that it knocked workmen on the surface from their feet, or smothered. Clear Away Debris Nevertheless, extra gangs are being pressed into service to clear away the debris which is the only way in which the men can be " reached, due to the fact that the tunnel is under the river. Those trapped are Byron Taylor, foreman; H. Laster and Frank Garri son, drillers, and W. Light, Patrick Joyce, W. F. Ifailey, J. Haines and William Gola, laborers. XPECT COUNCIL TO SEAT WEIL Dr. Roan Expresses Desire to Leave Public Wel: fare Board Definite action will be taken Sept. 24 by the city Council on the appointment by Mayor Leach of Jonas Weil to a seat on the public welfare board.. This was indicated today by members of the aouncil after Dr. C. M. Roan announced that his work on the board had been finished and that he wishes to be relieved of his duties as a member of the board. Should the council on Sept. 2,4 again defer action on Mr. Weil's- appointment Dr. Roan will continue to serve as a member of the board until final action on the appointment is taken. It is not expected, however, that the council will further delay definite consideration of Mayor Leach's appoint ment of Weil in the face of Dr. Roan's wish that he be relieved. Dr. Roan's term as a member of the board expired in July but he has retained his seat pending confirmation by the council of Mr. Weil's appointment. . " Dr. Roan in a letter to the council, now 1ti the hands of Alderman F. H. Brown, declared today that "I personally regard my duty as discharged." Dr. Roan has served as chairman of a committee which yesterday presented its completed estimate of the requirements of General hospital for the next 10 years, as requested by the council. "Permit me to say," he continued, "that I have no regrets over the part I played in the removal of the board of public welfare from political influence."

TH YH TTV Opponents of Grain Rate Cut Admit Farmer Would Benefit By 6 -Cent Slash TRIAL OF TRIO IN AUTO DEATH SLATED OCT. 12 Defense Demand for Immediate Hearing Is Denied in Court Trial of the three men accused of being accessory to the automobile mur der of Mr. and Mrs. F. E. Carlton, was set today for Qct. 12 on motion of Ed Goff, assistant county attorney. The action was bitterly opposed by Simon Meshbesher, attorney for Jack Smith an'd Joe Cittadino, who demanded immediate trial. . .'Reasonable' Bail Asked Failing to speed the case, Mr. Meshbesher asked that bond for Smith be reduced to a more "reasonable" figure to prevent him from having to remain in jail more than a month and Judge E. A. Montgomery announced that he would take the matter up in chambers after court closed. The prosecutor asked that the trial of Smith, (also known as Crider) Cittadino and George Murphy be. held after that of Harry Shepard, alleged death car driver. Cittadino was released in $7,500 cash bond furnished last night by his counsel, Simon Meshbesher. Smith- and Murphy are still held in default of bond' and Shepard who is indicted on a charge of murder in the third degree is free in $25,000 bond. Cittadino Explains Action Cittadino said today that after the accident Shepard asked to be taken to his rooms at the Marion hotel and that he helped to take' Shepard away but in doing so had no intention to conceal Shepard's whereabouts from the police investigating the fatal crash. Melvin C. Passolt, investigator for the county attorney's office, today revealed that Shepard has a municipal court record in addition to a United States district court record of a fine of $150 paid for possession of liquor. Shepard's Court Record Shepard was arrested on Oct. 12, 1911, charged with assault and battery and was fined $2, Passolt said. Shepard was arrested again on June 25, 1919, charged with speeding and was given a suspended sentence of $5 fine or 5 days in. jail. On June 4, 1921, he was held for investigation and released and on Jan. 19, 1924, he was arrested for the alleged possession of liquor but the case was dismissed. KING RETURNED ' TO CANADA HELM Liberals Win at Polls Meighen Ministry Prepares to Quit Ottawa, Ont., Sept. 15. The defeat of the Meighen ministry in the general elections yesterday will see Macken zie King returned to power, it was in dicated today. That King and his ministry when sworn in will immediately have a royal commission investigation of smuggling between Canada and the United States and will confer with General L. C. Andrews, U. S. prohibition chief, to halt the flow of liquor across the border, was expected. Today the high lights of the landslide that ousted the Meighen ministry are: King will have 110 liberal followers in the new parliament. As a consequence, the balance of power in the new house will again be held by progressives, progressive-liberals, laborites and independents. Meighen has been defeated, in Portage Laprairie, his former constituency.. Present indications are that the conservative representation in the house will be 80. Meighen is expected to summon a meeting of his cabinet at once to prepare for the government's resignation. Defeat of the ministry and of the conservative high tariff has been fairly decisive. The premier himself has gone down with five of his ministers. His party failed to make a breach In the Quebec liberal citadel and in every province excepting Nova Scotia and British Columbia, conservatism rolled up before the onslaught of King and his auxiliaries. UNDER Representatives of Southern Cities Testify at I.C.C. Hearing Here f Attacking the proposed 6-cent grain rate reduction on grounds that it is prejudicial to other milling and grain centers in the west, the opposition today was given its -tuning at the hearing of the interstate commerce commission held at the Nicollet hotel. The witnesses testifying were W R. Scott, representing Kansas City interests; Charles E. Rippin, representing the merchants' exchange, St. Louis, and H. C. Wilson, representing the Sioux City grain exchange. Trio Closely Questioned All three witnesses were subjected to sharp questioning from opposing counsel and from Commissioner J. B. (Jampbell, in charge of the hearing. Apparently not convinced of the adequacy of the reasons offered by Mr. Scott for opposing the grain rate cut, Commissioner jCampbell attempted to pin him down on the motives prompting- Kansas City to fight the rate cut. Admits Cut Would Aid Farmer "If it is true that Buffalo has the advantage over Minneapolis and can set the pace in competition," asked the commissioner, "how can the 6-cent rate cut hurt Kansas City?" Mr. Scott answered that the rate change would "put two large competi tors at our heels, instead of one." He admitted, however, that the reduced rates" would make buying more active and tend to help the producer in hotter returns. . Mr. Rippin of St. Louis, the second witness called, contended that if the new tariff were allowed, it would cut off what business St. Louis had in the east, unless a similar rate cut were allowed that section.

' " SUSPECT MUST STAND TRIAL IN DEATH OF UN' ERD ALL Self-Accused Slayer Held Case of 'Constitutional Inferiority' Alienists Say He Appreciates Difference Between Right and Wrong Tom Johnson is sane and must stand trial on a charge of having murdered Leonard T. Erdall, former Minnesota university football star, durr ing an attempted holdup. Johnson was declared to be sane in the report to District Judge Frank E. Reed made today by a commission of three physicians appointed by. the court to examine the pris-oner. Case Up Tomorrmv The case of Johnson will be called for trial tomorrow before Judge E. A. Montgomery in Hennepin district court at which time it is expected the case will be definitely set for trial Friday. The report, signed by Dr. Arthur S. Hamilton, Dr. Julius Johnson and Dr. Hewitt B. Hannah, as presented to the judge, follows: "The following is our report on the examination of Thomas Johnson, made Sept. 11, 13 and 14, 1926, chiefly at ' the Hennepin county jail. The investigation has covered a period of about six hours. Careful Consideration "We have given careful consideration to this man's family history, his early life, including his school life, and his subsequent career. Based on these it is our opinion: "1 This man is a case of constitutional inferiority. In an Investigation of his emotional hi&tory, the earliest manifestation of abnormal behavior was at the age of 6 years. These emotional difficulties have persisted throughout his life and in our judg-ment are the basis of his subsequent social difficulties and criminal -acts. The emotional difficulties are largely sex reactions. Knows Right From Wrong "2 He is a man of average intelligence, appreciates the difference between right and wrong and is capable of formulating and understanding a defense. "3 His physical examination reveals no material defect.. .. "4 He is not at this time Insane." Admitted 14 Murders When Johnson was arrested in Seattle several weeks ago he told the authorities that he had murdered 14 men and had committed more than 1,700 highway robberies. He Included Erdall as one of his victims and waived extradition proceedings to come back to Minnesota to face trial. Upon his arrival here he reiterated his claim that he had slain Erdall and gave unrevealed details of the holdup and shooting. . . . The prisoner also claimed to have perpetrated numerous holdups and other robberies .in Minneapolis and gave the police a partial list of the places robbed. Sought to Protect Client L. L. Longbrake, public defender, had requested the mental examination, maintaining that his client was not capable of understanding the charge of murder and robbery placed against him. After reading the physicians' report that Johnson "is a man of average intelligence, appreciates the difference between right and wrong, and is capable of formulating and understanding a defense," Longbrake said he was satisfied but had wanted to protect his client so long as there was a doubt of his mental capacity. Johnson Wants to Die One object of the request for the examination,. Longbrake said, was to determine whether a man once adjudged"-insane and a fugitive from an asylum who had never later been judged sane could' be held as being sane when confessing to crimes. Johnson had escaped from an asylum for the criminal insane in Missouri. Johnson at various .times has stated he wished to die rather than face a long term of imprisonment. He has devoted much of his time in his cell to reading the Bible and writing "poetry" and accounts of the various criminal exploits to which he lays claim.
