A single misstep or rash act, or der on bis part-is all that is nec- ry. It does not require courage or ismanship to provoke war.

The secretary that if Mr. Hughes "stands by his y platform he must either repeal jbstitute something for" the farm law. He argued that the "Roose- panic of-1907, the worst in our iry, is conclusive proof of repub- incornpetency," and added that virile, rich, unmaimed and highly loped people" need fear nothing "the competition of stricken and en Europe" after the war. : continued that even if we are en- ·ered that the creation of a non- san tariff board and the enact. of anti-dumping and unfair corn- ion laws by the democratic con- have already provided means to tect every legitimate interest ist hurtful combinations against Nine Bodies in Ruins of Burned Office Building NEW YORK, Oct.

Oct. 18.--Carrying a baby in her arms," .Mrs. Catherine Marak fired three shots in the crowded courtroom of Judge Foells today, probably .fatally wo.unding Jacob Klaus, wlio hart been named by her husband in a divorce suit. Klaus, the brother of an alderman, was shot in the head and in the back. The third shot went wild. frs. Marak is the mother of four children. Klaus wan a witness In the- suit for her husband. The woman declared that Klaus had ruined i«r home and happincwa and had then teemed Judge Arthur G. Wray, of Tork, will preside and introdcce Judge A. D. Norton! of Missouri, at the Wilson meeting: irf Lincoln on Thursday evening, to be held in the large banquet room of the "Llndell hotel. A special invitation is extended to progressives, owing to the fact that both the chairman and the principal speaker are members of that party. In his introductory remarks. Judge Wray will have something to say as to why the progresslxes should give their support, to President Wilson. Judge Nortonl's speech will be an expose of the deal engineered by George W. Perkins to turn the bull moose party over to the standpat republican bosses, to- geth,er wltl»« of what the Wilson administration has accomplished along progressive lines and a plain statement of what it "would mean to have the national government turned over again to the party that, is controlled by Wall street Everywhere that Judge Norton! has spoken, he has made a very strong impression upon the minds of voters. He Is one of the most powerful and convincing orators now on the stump for any political party. Ho comes to Lincoln for the only speech he will make in Nebraska, after a. tour of Colorado a.nd other far western states. Some Sour Grape*. A bad case of sour grapes is In evi- d^nce at republican state headquarters over the public- announcement by Judge Wray, published several days ago, that he has decided to support President Wilson because the latter stands for progressive ideas ajid policies and has caused many of them to be enacted into law. Secretary Beebe of tjie g. o. p. state committee has given out a statement calling Wray a "disturber in the ranks" and saying he never was a very good republican, anyway. Wray has not claimed to be a republican since 1912, as he left the party in that year because he could not stand for Taft and standpatism. He had been a good enough republican, however, previous to that time to be nominated and elected county judge on the republican ticket In York county. The fact'is that a very persistent effort was made to-hold Judge Wray in line for Hughes this · year. His law partner at York Is a republican and a candidate for office this year, and pressure "was brought to bear on Wray not to come out for Wilson, on that account. But Wray refused to let his business associations or personal friendships overcome his political principles, and that is what is now h u r t i n g the republican managers. They realize that his action in supporting Wilson, along with such other leading progressives as J. C. Harpham, W. J. Broatch, G. O. Van Meter, Will S. Jay and numerous others, will make it impossible to carry Nebraska for Hughes. The speech made here last Thursday by Balnbridge Colby of New 'York crystallized a big percentage of the bull moose strength in Nebraska for Wilson., It is predicted that Nortoni's speech -Thursday evening will bring still mora of the progressives into line for the president's re-election. U. S. to Take Over Legations at Athens ATHENS, Oct. 17.--(Via London, Oct. 18.--On the initiative of the central empires.

The approach of the cold teaaon" it accompanied by no diminution in activity in moit of the'European battle area. In eome of them, indeed, the effort* of th* belligerents apparently are being redoubled. This aeemt notably true along the eaet»rn front from Volhynta to Rumania, whence oontinu- out fighting it reported, with a virtual deadlock th* result so far. Further *outh, the attempt of tha central power* to drive a wedge between the Russian* and Rumanian* near Dorna Watrn in the southern Carpathian* is in *n uncertain stage. Berlin has reported the capture of some height*, but Petrogrxd claims the repulse of all the Teutonic attacks. Temporarily at least, the tide of battle apparently ha* changed along the Tranaylvanlan border. Berlin has conceded the stiffening of the Rumanian resistance along this front and Bucharest advice* today declare that King Ferdinand's troop* are making a successful stand at one point at least, in th* Predeal region south of Kronstadt, are pushing General von Falkenhayn's armies back. From the Rumanian viewpoint all the military new* is reassuring it i* declared. Ruesian troops in force are reported helping the Rumanians to defend the passes from Transylvania into their territory. On the Somme front German attacks were delivered against the French line both north and *outh of the Somme. Three assaults by the Germans upon the French in Sailly-Sail- lisel are declared by Paris to have been repulsed with heavy losses to the German* who also were repelled nfter they had gained a footing in a French first line trench near Bearny-En-Santerre, south of the river. On the British front in the Somme region progress by General Haig'c forces between the Albert-Bapaume road and Les Boeufs i* reported despite the prevalence of rainy weather. Redmond Denounces System of Government Maintained for the Island. (Associated Press. LONDON, Oct. IS.--The Irish C|U*s- tlon was again brought to the fore in the house of commons today with the introduction by John Redmond of ft motion criticising the system of government of the island. The motion reads: "That the system of Rovernment at present maintained in Ireland Is inconsistent with the principles wherc- for the fillies are fighting In TCuropo and is. or has been, mainly responsible for the recent unhappy events and for the present state of feeling In that country." Since Mr. Redmond gave not ire of his Intention to attiick the government, the Irish leaders have hold a number ot conferences with Baron Wlmborne, lord lieutenant of Ireland, which probably had more to do with the suggestion of extension of conscription to Ireland, tTwn with the grievances arising from continuance of martial laws and the failure to release all those nrreHted during the uprising in Ireland last spring. However, the question of conscription did not come under Mr. Redmond's motion. It doubtless will be discussed tomorrow when the whole subjtlt of the man power of the empire comes under reviisw. John Halson moved as an amendment to the Redmond motion the following: "Having regard for the importance of the United Kingdom and Ireland combining with the rest of the empire in presenting a unite front to the enemy, it Is not/desirable at the present time to discuss controversial matters of domestic politics."

The news agency gives a quotation attributed to a London newspaper in which the theory is advanced that the purpose of the Zeppelin attacks Is not the killing of women ajid children, but the curtailment of the production of ammunition by causing the suspension of work in ammunition factorten after warnings of Zeppelin raids hav* been given rather than by the destruc- i lion of factories. The news agency ' nays this newspaper stattd thousan'ds of working hours were lost in-on* week and, continues: "German papers compares thone !··-,,» suits with the affirmations of British papers that the air attacks cauietf no damaflre.
