There Are 12-"i,00« rnemployed Laborers in New York. .New York. Jan. 8.—Organized labor has taken ui> the problem of finding relief for the 12 .">.000 i>ersons said to be <;ut of work in New York city. A mp( tin?: will he ^leld on today atf which plan;; to nsAst -the unemployetl will be disrussed. It Is expected that an appeal will be made to city, state and natlnual governmrnts to assist with sjx'clal emergency funds and by giving work to some of the thousands who are out of emplo.vment. It is claimed that, the national government, as well as the state and city have laid off thousands of men at a time when l>rivate concerns are cutting down their foices, thus adding to a situation which was already bad. tS FRED BARTELL8 OUT? Said That Chautauqua Manager Had Quit-the Businets. (Continued ifroin page 4.) World' had the following to say of Vancil aiid the supposed tragedy: It is pretty clearly established that Vancil had been having pretty regular criminal relations with Blanche Owen, a woman who has been rooming over the Byron Jones meat mraket. I Their goings-on not only drove .Mrs. Vancil to deaperation and made her extremely unhappy, but they caused cooiplalnt from Ur. Jones, who was aniibyed by them,.and by others. Vancil worked for a long time, at the Fisher shoe store as shoemaker, .md later worked for the Newby-Ware ahop, now the Newby shoe shop. He is an excellent workman and gave jplendid satisfaction as an employe un til a short time ago. About a month igo he was discharged from the Newby store. Since then he has been out to employmetit, unable to get a job on account of his reputation and his relations, known or suspected, with the Owen woman. > Planned Hasty SUiiment Mrs. Snow, the woman who . was left at the house after the body of .Mrs. Vancil had been removed, is the mother of a girl named Myrtle Snow, and Myrtle Snow Is a close companion of Blanche Owen, VancH 's alleged paramour. When Mrs. Vancil died, her. husband arranged to take the body almost immediately to lola for burial, not stopping here for any sort of funeral or service. Rev. A. J. Ross, pastor 5f.t1ie German church, lives close to •lie Vancil home, which is at 940 Connecticut street. When he learned of the death he weiit to offer help and iearned of the hurry-up plans for ship inont of the body, lie urged Vancl! :i> stay long enough to hold some son Of service, and finally Vancil agreed. Mrs. Snow, mother of Blanche's companion, was apparently very eager to assure the reverend visitor that everythluf^ was as It should he. and protested to him that "everything Is all right" as regards the death and the body. Before Vnncll could get the .jody out of town the coroner step|)ed 'n and took charge of the case with the developmouts told yesterday. Written by Vancil. The sheriff turned the note over to County Attorney Harley. who began 1 search for some authentic example ^f the writing of Mrs. Vancil. This was found in a bill of sale, and In two or three other documents where she had signed her name. The signature jn the note does not look enough like her writing to have been done by the same hand. Further, the penmanship of the note is closely similar to the handwriting of the bill of sale, which was written by Vancil himself. The girls who found the note are Anna Snow and Maud Reatz, two young girls of the neighborhood. The sheriff believes the story they tell, which Is that they found the note In the bed yesterday morning about nine o'clock. The girls evidently tell the truth concerning their part of the matter. «>otc a Forgery." That the county attorney, Tom Har- 'ey. of Douglas county Is going to make a thorough investigation of the death of Mrs. Vancil is evident from the fact that he has had letters, which were written to Mrs. Vancii's relatives in this city by Myrtle Snow, returned to Lawrence that the handwriting could be examined and compared with the hand writing of the note which was found in Mrs. Vancii's bed and was supposed at first to hare been writen to relatives hero at intervals written to reltalves here at Intervals by Myrtle Snow for Mrs. Vancil. HAD SETTLED HIS CASE. So Will Powera Waa Released by Mar shal Fredertckaon. (Fort Scoit Rei )Ub 'icau.) A substantial rumor has reached hero that Fred W. Barte 'i, the Slloam Springs, Ark..' m'ercliaut. has dropped out of the Chautauqua business. For tjwo years Fort Scott was one of the towns In his Associated Chautauquas. At the close of last summer's assembly Mr. Bartell said Port Scott was not giving the enterprise sufiicient support and he would cut it off his list. He took!similar action In regard to four or five other towns, and now it is reported that ho has quit the business enth-ely.

Talk of Reducing the Emergency Ration of the Soldier. Washington. Jan. H.—^There Is talk' in array circles v{ further reducing th? emergency rn:lon already heretofore reduced from 162 ounces. Next o malnlenance of its quality the desire Is to minimize the weight of the ration to the end that there may he a rsductlon to the last degree of the burden of the soldier on the field on niergency call. Some of the European nations have emergency rations lower than ours and the opinion i.s that this may he safely rsduced in weight while at the same time retaining Its effecting its effect as a diet.
