TWO FARMER-LABOR PARTIES ARE FORMED Both Are Intending to Launch "Programs of Intensive Activity .'I T Chicago, July 7. —Defeated in efforts to promoto unity of political action among minority political and industrial groups, but well satisfied with results, farmer-labor party and federated farmer-labor party delegates went home today, each intent on putting its finger in tho 1924 political Pie. Leaders of the farmer-labor party, who' fought against affiliation with the federated party in the face of a »plit in their own ranks, said their] party wns "freed of a red menace and on its feet stronger than ever in pursuit of'independent political satisfaction." Tho federated farmer-labor party welcomed to" its ranks the delegates who bolted Uie farmer labor convention and elevated five of them to its executive committee. To Launch Programs. Both parties prepared to Jauneh programs of intensive activity, leading to individual platforms, and presidential candidates in 1924. Jay G. Brown, national secretary of the farmer-labor party, said his party would Immediately approach all groups of workers who could accept its principles and solicit their affiliation. William Bouck, representing farmers of Washington, was elected national chairman of the federated H'arty. Nationalization of all public utilities is advocated in the federated party platform, which includes declarations for operation of industries on a basis of Increased control by farmers and workers, security against destitution, unemployment, sickness and high prices, 8-hour maximum •work day; compelling the federal reserve bank to servo farmers ami •workers; child labor to over 18 years; minimum living wage; soldier Bonus, soojai, maternity and insurance laws. Resolutions adopted by the conference urged recognition of soviet Russia and Mexico, elimination of military propaganda from public schools, «m<l enfranchisement of citizens in the District of Columbia. New York, July 7. —Detailed plans for launching a William G. McAdoo for president boom have been worked out at a dinner of a dozen of his most intimate friends here, the New York livening Post said today. Although Mr. McAdoo has not formally announced his candidacy, his supporters were declared to bo confident his hat would be in the ring. The dinern, meeting recently ostensibly to honor Samuel B. Amidon, national Democratic committeeman, from Kansas, picked Mr. Amidon to handle the McAdoo campaign, the Evening Post says. Talked of Ford. Discussion of Henry Ford's chances was Bald to have occupied a good deal of tlie diners' time. The • McAdoo strategists concluded, that If McAdoo announced his caridldacy, soon enough; he could p.pike a Ford Democratic boom, -although tho Detroit manufacturer probably still would have to be reckoned with as third party canidate. Smith and Underwood, they decided, were not especially dangerous, it being held that, their "wet" trend was politically unpopular. Cox, the Democratic standard bearer in the 1KU race, was believed by 1he diners to be McAdoo's most powerful opponent, reports reaching them that Kentucky, Ohio and at least two other other mld- dlewoslern states were lining up for Cox. Davis, the diners decided probably would «nter the convention 4vith a good show of strength led by his native '\V[!,^t Virginia contingent but most of this strength it was declared could be swung to McAdoo. The diners discussed the relative strength of formor <iov. Cox of Ohio, (lev. Smith of New York, Senator Underwood; former Ambassador to Great Britain, John W. Davis and Henry (Ford, concluding that McAdoo couhj enter the convention with 400 delegates and with many others ready to switch their votes to him as soon as they had registered "favorite son" choices. Amidon to Europe. Mr. Amidon, now on his way to Europe, Is expected to return in September, by which time It is said McAdoo club will have been formed in many states and the campaign be ready to be brought out Into the open. Among those present at the dinner were Stuart O. Clbboney, secretary ot tho Wilson campaign committee in 1912; Byron R. Newton, collector of the port of New York under the Wilson regime; Frank Wilson, publicity director for the third and fourth Liberty Loan drives; W. Judson Tim- inlus, Insurance, broker; David Hunter Miller, attorney; K. Bright Wilson, preBirieiit of tho Tennessee Society, and Oscar Price, motion picture distributor. (By Tho Ansoclntcd Tress) Goldfield, Nov., July 7.—Goldfield cmce^a synonym for fabulous wealth, quick fortunes, gambling and all tho hurry and bustle of a wostern 'boom town, Is but another namo for desolation today. The desert blew a windy : supreme co blast yesterday, fanue-d a Tire -which ^ j>i aco j on officials said had been set as an elsode in a bootleggers' feud and swept the flamesVfrom end to end ot the community. As a result one man is dead, a woman is reorted missing and damage estimated at possibly $1.500,0<HJ was done. « But Little Left. Of all the streets of houses known to miners, the prospectors an<l the sportsmen who flocked thither to see the Cans-Nelson lightweight championship fight -in 19*0, only half a dozen buildings remain today. Of these the Goldfield hotel, where miners and dress suited promoters gathered, stands alone. Though the fire raged across the street from it, this structure escaded virtually unscathed. Other buildings standing are the railroad station, the postofflce. tho old John S. Cook and Company barfk •building, the Elks Olub and the hospital, from which Dr. Charles H. BlaV; and his wife yesterday carried ten patients—all there were—when the flames threatened to take It. The rest Is waste, charred walls, smould­ ering ashes ami smoking ruins. / Wntcr and Dynamite. Gofdfleld gave the flames a hard battlo. Water, piped 30 miles from a spring In the mountains, and dynamite, from the stores of mines and the magazines of supply houses, were used against them. Hut the Water supply was Inadequate, the dynamite only made fresh kindling out of the fiimsy structures. Though for years Goldfield, which once was a city of 25,000 had more houses than ita dwindling population needed, last night there were not roofs enough for the thousand that remained when the fire started. From Tonopau and from other Nevada cities, even from California, went food, clothing or "other relief to the stricken town. Will Rebuilt It Last night hundreds of refugees huddled on the hillsides amid what possessions they had been able to cave, nf slept as best they could.In rehabilitated miners' shacks on t.!n» outskirts or the city. Others went by train or automobile to Tonopah, sister city of the desert. 30 miles away. They carried #ord that they and those left behind would rebuild their city. B Washington, July 7.—With the smoke of the ship liquor battle clearing away, there are growing indications that the next featuro ot the prohibition law to be brought into the court may he the limitation the right of physicians to prescrlbo llcpior for medicinal purposes. A decision handed down yesterday by Judge Hourquln at Helena, Mont., is the second in recent weeks la.which federal courts have held the physician's limitation section of the law unconstitutional. Matter Being Considered. •Judge Knox in New York made the same-finding in a case brought us a test, and although department of justice officials have not yet. taken an appeal to the highest, court there is evidence that the question is under serious consideration at the office of the attorney-general. The position ol thoso who have attacked tha section limiting tlie amount of liquor physicians con prescribe as medicine has been based oa the; wording of the eighteenth amendment Itself, which says that manufacture and -salo of intoxicating liquors "for beverage purpose," is forbidden. It was argued In congress when the subject was under debate that tho amendment did not deal- In any sense with -medicinal iquors and that any attempt hy laV to go that length in regulating liquor consumption would be without constitutional sanction. In some cases lower courts have disagreed with,tho Montana and New- York decisions, and law enforcement officials here appear to regard an ultimate ruling by the suprUne court a-s necessary to clear away confusion and insure a uniform practice throughout the country.

Harris of the circuit court in this county from presiding in the Barkwell case, set for trial hero Monday. Barkwell's affidavit was supported by affidavits by J. ill. C. Schwabe, local contraolor, and Willard Fecton, local restaurant proprietor. Affidavits were filed at the same time disqualifying sheriff Fred C. Brown from acting in the case, and were followed by affidavits tiled by the prosecution disqualifying Coroner Ben 1J Baker, the legal successor to the sheriff in empanelling a Jury. Those affadivits were later withdrawn when it was agreed that a sheriff's deputy should select tlie Jury Independently of the sheriff. Both the sheriff and the coroner are witnesses for the state in the case. Was Silent. Prosecuting Attorney Hulen this morning maintained his silence re-, garding new developments In the lynching investigation which resulted in his taking the 14 year old white girl whom Scott is alleged to have attacked to Mexico yesterday in an effort to have her identify Ollio Watson as her assailant, instead of Scott •who was.hanged by the mob for the crime. Watson is being, held in Jail at Mexico on another charge. When attorneys for the defense and prosecution failed to agree upon a trial Judge, Judge Harris named Judge E. 8. Grant of Mexico, who will come to Columbia, Monday to try tho case.

V. M. Wiley, President of the ! Hoard of Kducution and J. \V. GowauH, | superintendent of the schools gave to ; the News the following statement today: To the Citizens of Hutchinson School District. Your Board of lCducation recently petitioned the ninyor to call a school bund clcctiou for the purpose of voting on the proposed issuance of $22.-|,tii .,o in school bonds. The election has been called for Tuesday, July 17th. We wish lo state briefly the ea'.^e for the action of the Hoard of Kdueatlon. New Building Only Solution. for many years there bus been a very nocieeabli- and actual need for the rephicing of the eld trade build- in;; known as the .Maple street school. The Hoard in tho past has spent con- sijernblo money in repairs cm this bdilding but the condition of the building Is such that iu their judgment, additional money spent in repairs would bo wasted. The building is insanitary, the lighting is such aS to he very injurious lo the children's eyes, and the building Is decidedly overcrowded. It is the hope of the Board that it niay be able to replace the old building with a modern sixteen room Niullding. The children of Careyvitte need school privileges within ua...inable walking distance. Last year the children below [he Junior high school attended., the Winans school, which resulted in the serious overcrowding of Unit school. Tho placing of*a school building in the Careyville section will ndt only bring school closer to the chiidreif* there, but. will also relieve tlie coiige-iticm at the Winans school. Sherman Over-Crowded. A third proposed is the addition of unotber unit to the Sherman Junlor high school building. The present building is over-crowded. I-ast year lite library bad to be moved into a room formerly used us a locker room. On the comings year it will, prebaaly be necessary to crowd tln'i cooking and sowing classes into the h'anie i room. Iu a Junior high school en assembly room Is an absolute necessity. At Bliermau a room with 1.4 1 single seats Is being used for assembly purposes. When It Is considered that tin: enrollment hist year was 6115 the complete inadequacy of this room is clearly recognized. It Is an impossible and dangerous situation. The Liberty Junior high has an assembly room with 720 seats. It is the plan to erect a unit which will add some six class rooms and an assembly room which may also serve as a gymnasium. Using the room for a dual purpose will savu thousands of dollars in construction costs. AlmOFt one-fourth ot the school children of Hutchinson would bo directly benefited by the proposed buildings. It is tlie desire of the Hoard of Edueation to give equal physical school conditions to all the children of Hutchinson and with,this In view they are asking for tlie voting of the bonds. V. M.
