Two COURIER-POST, CAMDEN, N. J., WEDNESDAY, JULY 25, 1934 Governor Orders End of Minneapolis Truck Strike or Martial Law Brisbane: It's Already Smashed-Out of Hawaii, What? Dillinger, Jealousy, : Cash So They Spend $25,515. SENATOR BORAH denounce! monopoly as the cause of all our troubles, and say "smash the monopolies." As it happens, happenings since 129 have . smashed the monopolies fairly well. . If anybody has a monopoly you would like to own, you can get it at a bargain. Senator Borah says purchasing r. power must be restored to the great mass of the people. President Rooserelt agrees, combines deeds with words, according to the recommendation of the other Roosevelt, and has handed out thousands of millions of dollars, ' thinly disguised as wages, say-' ing in effect "go and buy your-' elf something." Hundreds of millions are paid to the farmer for not working, leaving fields implanted, and other millions have been paid to cotton growers ,for plowing cot- ton under. What more could you do, except gather Income taxpayers together, take their capital from them, what they have left, and distribute that also? ' ' " The President reaching Ha-4 - wail, is greeted with the friendly "Aloha," also with a remark which, when "the good" Tom - Williams repeated It, sounded like "Molokihoi." The President will have a " string of flowers put around his neck, and then, like little chil- dren that have said "Merry Christmas" to Papa and Mamma. Hawaiian, like other good - Americans, will stand around, - wondering what they will' get. It must be a wonderful thing to say, as President Roosevelt can ; say, "Here, have a billion, or two." ,:. What population will Hawaii develop in time, with its present mixture described by Time as 146,000 Japanese, 6000 Filipinos, 27,000 Chinese, 22,000 Polynesians, - 29,000 Portuguese, 7000 Puerto ; Ricans, 45,000 whites and 31,000 mixed breeds? These human "breeds" are intermarrying, carrying out on the little island, on a small scale, - the process of mixing two-legged races that has gone on ever since the first Cromagnon gentleman type met the first Neanderthal lady type in the old stone age. There is nothing more important than these mixtures of . races, -for 'real peace on earth and good will toward men will not come, probably, until the earth has only one race, and therefore no "enemy." Already imagination stars to build the Dillinger "romance." The lady in the case, whom criminals would call "the finger-woman," because she obliged the detectives by putting her finger on Dillinger, is supposed to have hidden in the woods with the bandit. Jealous rage seized her when another woman came to join the killer, and she be-t rayed him to his death. The reward of J15.000 probably had more to do with the "finger" than any jealous rage. ' "Jealousy is cruel as the grave; the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame," as we learn from Solomon. But in these practical days there is something about $15,000 that is also powerful and vehement. Mr. and Mrs. Peters (he was "night man" in a small Hoboken, N. J., lunch room) won $25,516 , in a sweepstakes lottery, and felt that they should show that winning in a lottery is a good thing. They drove to collect their money in a rented 16-cyllnder car with a liveried chauffeur, and "opened" champagne. Any expert accountant can show them that 4 percent on ($25,516 will not stand that strain. Some "get-rich-quick" expert will probably show them how to change $25,516 into $10,000,000 then Mr. Peters will be "night man" again. Conditions in Vienna are bad, with more dangerous riots expected as Nazi terrorism continues its bomb explosions. Nazis in Austria declare that "Roman Catholic priests led Chancellor Dollfuss in his campaign against the Nazis," and a Nazi spokesman declares that Nazis "have determined to kidnap the Roman Catholic priests as hostages." As soon as any Nazi terrorists are sentenced to death, and hanged, their friends will kill the priests held as hostages. In Pennsylvania, where the substantial "Pennsylvania Dutch" once presided over families of 10, 20 or more children, the birth rate has fallen to 16 per 1000 of population, lowest rate on record. Knowledge of birth control plus foolish laws that keep out the kind of immigrants that created the United States make a combination not very promising. Chicago supplies a photograph of the dead bandit Dillinger lying on his back, bloodstains from various bullets showing on his shirt. Sitting above him, looking down, with satisfaction and -triumph, you observe a detective and wonder how that detective's expression would change if Dillinger suddenly came to life. The picture reminds you of the frequently photographs of small Englishmen ,each with one foot on the body of a big dead tiger. What a difference if the proud hunter met the tiger face to face in the jungle instead of shooting him from the back of an elephant. AUTHOR BRISBANE. UNIDENTIFIED BATHER STRICKEN ON BEACH Atlantic City, July 24. Stricken with a heart attack on the beach tonight, an unidentified bather died before an ambulance reached Atlantic City Hospital. The man . was discovered unconscious under a pavilion at the foot of New York avenue, and police were summoned from the boardwalk. He wore a black bathing suit and evidently had been in the ocean. Clothing found beside him consisted of a white Jersey, black pin-striped trousers and white shoes. He is described as being about 35, weighed I vi pounds and is S feet 8 inches tall. EMPLOYERS, UNIONS MUST REPLY TODAY; MAP HRlffl final Proposal' Outlined at Session With Mayor; and Federal Mediators ' ANNOUNCEMENT IS NEAR Minneapolis, July 24. An ultima tum to striking truckmen and their employers to end an eight-day strike was delivered tonight by Governor Flood -B. Olson. -i- ' Martial law was held out as the alternative of arbitration. Employers and union officials were eiven. until 10 a. , m. tomorrow, to reply. A "final nrooosal" for arbitration was drawn at a conference held to night at the Lake MinnetonKa home of Mavor A. (i. Jttainoriage. a- eral Mediators E. H. Dunnigan and Father Francis J. Haas also at tended. The conference adjourned without formal announcement other than that Father Haas would have "an important announcement to make at 10 a. m. tomorrow." Governor Olson said "formulas and definitions" were discussed. It was learned, however, from an offi cial source that a plan of arbitration had been agreed upon. Governor Olson, unofficially, was considered as representing the union. Mayor Bainbridge would have been the logical representative of the employers. "An arbitration plan which is considered to be fair and workable has been drawn up and will be submitted to the disputants for a reply before 10 a. m. tomorrow," the United Press informant said. Governor Olson in calling the conference referred to it as "final attempt to avert martial law." How successful it was will be answered tomorrow morning in Father Haas' announcement, it was expected. A plan submitted yesterday by Father Haas and Dunningan failed of acceptance. Gov. Olson had said that If it failed he would try "once more" to obtain an agreement for arbitration. More thn 4000 Minnesota national guardsmen have been assembled in the twin cities. They have been armed with war-time equipment, in cluding field artillery, rifles, bayonets, machine guns, gas bombs and revolvers. The crack Third Battalion of the 26th Infantry, trained especially for not duty, was moved lated today from the concentrated camp at the fair grounds in St. Paul to the strike zone in Minneapolis. The unsigned martial law proclamation for operation of all trucks, but In the event of disorders, only trucks engaged in interstate commerce would be permitted to operate. The operation of trucks under police convoy has been the "sore spot" of the strike of between 6000 and 7000 members of the General Driv ers' and Helpers' Union. Police fired into a group of pickets who halted a truck last Friday, wounding 50 of them, one fatally. The clash brought to three the number slain and to 350 the number wounded in labor disorders in two months. Record Heat Wave Kills Scores in West (Continued from Page One) the mercury reached 110.2. Kansas City's airport station registered 110 degree Other temperatures recorded today Included: Jefferson City, Mo., 112; Joplin, Mo., 107; Omaha, 105; Lincoln, Neb., 104; Topeka, Kan., In); Emporia, Kan., 113; Detroit, 104.3. Prairie Fires Feared Sprinkling of lawns, washing of automobiles has ceased. A new hazard, forest and prairie fires, threatened. Already one was raging near Antlers, Okla. Most of the Middle West and Southwest was dry ss tinder, easy prey of locomotive sparks or a dropped cigaret or match. Section crews of railroads burned off right-of-ways, carefully stamped out the fire, to establish safety zones. At 10 o'clock tonight a breeze off Lake Michigan lowered the temperature slightly In Chicago. The low pressure area at that hour, approaching from the northwest, invaded North Dakota with prospects that it would continue southward. The falling temperature was accompanied by showers. Oklahoma Indians forecast tonight that the searing wave would be broken Thursday by a raging flood. They were leaving the lowlands, although only a trickle remained in river beds. Wise men of the Comanche Tribe held council, decided certain signs gave indisputable proof that a "great flood" soon will sweep the country. "When snakes go, it is time for Indian to go, too." was the medicine men's dictum. Thursday was picked ss the time of the deluge because the moon will be full. Hills were dotted with Indians' tents. DROUGHT FUNDS GIVEN Washington, July 24. A $10,000,000 allotment for federal relief in 16 states during August was announced by Assistant Administrator Lawrence Westbrook today.

Dillinger's Body Back Home for Burial Mooresville, Ind., July 24. John Dillinger's father and half-brother brought the outlaw's body back today In an old hearse to the scenes of his boyhood. After a 210-mile trip over simmering highways. The body was taken to the E. F. Harvey funeral home for the night. To morrow morning it will be taken to the home of Mrs. Audrey Han cock, Dillinger's sister, in Maywood. Funeral services will be held there. Burial will be in Crown Hill Cem etery, where James Whitcomb Riley, ine poet, rests. Many persons who knew Dillinger when he was a barefoot boy were in the crowd that surrounded the hearse upon arrival and went later to the funeral home. A path had to be cleared through tne crowd before the body, in a wicker basket, could be wheeled into the parlors. Automobiles followed the old hearse from Chicago. In Indianapolis about 15 miles south of Maywood, so many people lined the curbs to see Dillinger's body pass that traffic be came snarled. Authorities said they could do nothing about complaints against the burial of a ruthless killer in the same cemetery with the poet, Riley. The Dillinger family has owned its lot mere lor years. Dillinger's moth er is buried there. His grave will be near her. She died when he was a small boy. Newspapers and police in Indian apolis said that a number of persons objected to burial in Crown Hill. All the callers, it was said, hung up without giving their names. Most of them, officials believed, were persons whose relatives are buried in the cemetery. Mrs. Hancock, who has become the leader of the Dillinger family since the death of her brother, was the first allowed to enter the funeral parlors. She forced her way through the crowd on the arm of Hubert. She cried hysterically. After her, other members of the family entered. Then the public was aamnieo to see the body, which lay on a stretcher-like table, on wheels. All but the fave was cov ered by a sheet. Behind the body mooa me iioo comn in which Dillinger will be buried. When the burial clothes were laid out, the family said they were "too dark" and Harvey sent to Indianapolis for some of lighter color. Mrs. Hancock said that she would select the pallbearers, but would not announce their names until tomorrow. She said that she would order the body removed to her home during the night. 1000 CHILDREN ENROLL FOR RIVERSIDE GAMES Riverside, July 24.

STOCKYARD STRIKE I obituaries i KILLS iilY CATTLE Animals Die of Thirst and Starvation Despite . Temporary Truce Chicago, July 24. Starving cattle died like flies in the pens of the Union Stockyards tonight despite a temporary truce in .the strike of 700 handlers. Men who care for the stock walked out this morning, leaving 80,000 already half-starved cattle with no one to car for them on a day when the temperature climbed to 105 and a blazing sun beat down upon their DSCKS. A true this afternoon gave commission men the right to go in and feed and water the stock, but it failed partly when pickets objected that non-union laborers were being used to unload hay at the feeding pieces, une non-union men left to avoid trouble. During the day most of the cattle were watered once. Few received any food. Animals Crowd Pens Coming on the heels of the largest shipment of cattle to the yards since 1908, the strike had a paralyzing effect. Th government only yesterday sent 45,000 head of half-starved cattle into the pens. They were cattle taken from farms which have become so dry during the prolonged drought that no feed and little water could be found there for them. When feeding time passed this morning without food or water, the cattle became fretful. A blazing sun beat down upon their backs. They were jammed so tightly in many places they could hardly move. By mid-morning the weaker ones began dropping. Government stockmen went into the pens with rifles and began shooting them that seemed at the point ot death. By noon, scores had died. Their carcases were trampled upon. White collar workers hurried about, carrying water, but there were not enough of them. ) Further Shipments Banned Meanwhile, the government market bureau, the packers and the stockyards company Issued an order that no more stock could be received. Dozens of farmers who had driven over blistering highways to bring their half-starved livestock to market were turned back at the gates and forced to return to their farms. Pickets made no effort to provoke violence. Police called to the scene were not needed. Union men said they were striking because the agreement reached at the end of a strike last September had been- broken. . Employers said all agreements had been kept, THREE GIRLs' fOUR MEN FINED AS DISORDERLY Swedesboro, July 24.

Fort Washington, Md., July 24. (Copyright, 1S34, by Universal Service, Inc.) Machine guns, the sharp crack of high-powered rifles, automatio shotguns and pistols rang ent en the sultry mid-Summer air at this army post today. It was Uncle Sam's new army gainst organized crime, against future John Dllllngers.

(Copyright, 1934, by United Press) Chancellor Engel-bert Dollfuss, Fascist ruler of Austria, embarked on his own grim "blood purge" tonight with the hang ing of a Socialist, found guilty of terrorism in strife-torn Austria. The man executed was Joseph uen, a Czech, who confessed shoot' ing a policeman and bombing the Danube Railroad line. A second de fendant, Rudolph Aniboeck, found guilty by the same court-martial which sentenced Gerl, was saved when President Wilhelm Miklas dra matically Intervened and communted the death order. Pleads for Friend Gerl during the court-martial pleaded for leniency for Anzboeck. He frequently broke in to insist Anzboeck was innocent.. Friend of the latter worked swift ly against the three-hour limit on death sentences in Austria. They sought out the president and prevailed upon him to sign the commutation papers in time to save Anzboeck' life. Gerl, insolent and calm at the trial, admitted he knew what the penalty was for his crimes, but retorted his "ideals are more important than my life." The hanging occurred at a moment when Austria was on the brink of civil conflict among it major politi cal elements the Fascists of Doll fuss, now in power; the Nazis; and their sympathizers, the Socialists and Communists. 800 Believed Arrested Police, on "alarm duty," have rounded up hundreds of the latter, 800 being the high estimate tonight, in a new drive to ,consolldate the Dollfuss regime and eliminate opposition. Possibly a score of Nazis also have been taken into custody in this harsh campaign. The latter boldly threatened re prisal should their men be put to death, and Dollfuss' men made Gerl, Socialist, the first "horrible ex ample" in their determined effort to instill fear into the heart of men who would rise against th govern ment. They seem still seeking to appease the Nazis without bloodshed, but further executions were feared as bombings continued to terrorize the uneasy peasantry. - The Socialists and Communist, normally bitter enemies of Fascists and Nazis, alike, have thrown in their lot with the Nazis for the moment against their common foe, the Fascists and a showdown is expect ed shortly. The government, ruling by decree, has made death obligatory for persons found guilty of illegal possession of explosives. Open Conflict Feared The decree has been Ignored, and open conflict is feared. Foflce cleared the streets, around the court yard shortly before Gerl was hanged. A company of soldiers and the police riot squad arrived IS minutes before the hanging, to guard the criminal courts building, where the execution took place. The gallows stood in the half-light of the Summer evening. Gerl step ped on the trap as dusk fell. While Gerl was led to the gallows, Anzboeck raved in his cell, madly shouting he preferred to die with his friend. His sister, Hrubich Anz boeck, said she and a lawyer appealed for hours in the man' behalf. succeeding at the last minute; - Appeal Successful We appealed successfully, thank God!" she said. "We were not re ceived at the chancellory or the archbishop's palace, but finally telephoned the archbishop's representative, Monsignor Weinbacher, who assured us everything was being done to obtain a commutation. "When he later informed us it had been obtained, we rushed to the jail where, contrary to our expectations, we found my brother wished also to hang." : Two hundred more arrests were made during the evening, chiefly Socialist and Communists, A few minor demonstrations occurred in the outer districts. Heavy police guards throughout Vienna sought to maintain order, especially at the chancellory and other public buildings. 4 . Extra patrols also were assigned to the sewers in the inner district of the capital favorite hiding spot for criminal and bombers. Recently, at Farnborough, England for the first time in the history of aviation, an amphibian airplane was launched by a land catapult, GAFJG TERRORISM OF TMTEBIDITS 2 Women Examined by Police in Phila. Area on Mob's Activities ROUNDUP IS COMPLETE Washington, July 24 While the Department of Justice geared itself today to amash the last of the Dillinger gang, another underworld mob which has terrorized Pennsylvania and other states reached the end of its bloody tether. San Francisco police announced the capture of Arthur Mlsanas, 37, described by Washington police as the last of the tri-state gang, accused of killings, gang "ride'' , slaughters, bank and mail truck holdups and a score of other crimes.- ; Civil authorities mopped up on the tri-state outlaws as J. Edgar Hoover, chief of the Department of Justice division of Investigation, prepared to leave for Chicago to Wirect the hunt for the last of Dillinger's henchmen. . U. S. After Nelsosi Hoover said his department would concentrate particularly on George "Baby Face" Nelson, runt bandit and ruthless killer, who succeeds Dillinger a the nation's Public Enemy No. 1. He will be shot on sight, Hoover said. Nelson is only 25, but a more merciless killer than Dillinger himself. He was Dillinger's trigger man and, according to federal agents, gets an insane joy from mowing down a victim, particularly a law enforcement officer. Search also will be extended for Dillinger' other lieutenants, John Hamilton and Homer Van Meter. Both are the killer type, but less bloodthirsty than Nelson. Hoover denied that Nelson slipped out of a police trap at Sandusky, O., last night. He said a filling station attendant there merely thought he saw Nelson. Six Men, Three Women In Mob The tri-state mob included six men and three women. Here is th way police disposed of them? Mlsanas arrested in San Francisco and will face numerous charges; Jerry Reid killed here by police.

Philadelphia authorities said they were without a trace of th fugitives, they learned both men had relatives in the West and believe they may have started In that direction. - , - ; I - The authorities' were investigating reports that two men, wearing shirts and dungarees, were seen Monday entering the home of Thomas Dough erty, at Second and Daly streets. Dougherty has admitted . knowing both escaped men, 'Frank "Babs" Wiley and Martin Farrell.
