friends or relatives in Germany feeling the sligheat alarm for the greatest an noyance to which tiaey could be pos sibly have been put must have been a temporary delay in getting checks cashed The

the Chicago Tribune who has just returned from Europe and sets forth his view of the con flict as follows Germany will win other outcome of the great European struggle Is possible in view of the that the censorship wilthholds from the world Germany will win Is wtnning now by both might and right I am home tonight from a sojourn abroad spent in war torn countries through that tense period ureltm naries and mobilizations I smdied he situation there at first hand and I tave returned to Chicago with a view the situation that no anti Jerman censorship pass My observations covered the centre of activity In England France Ger many Holland and Belgium I was in Paris July 16 and I sailed from England Aug 5 In that time the war clouds gathered and the storm broke Week From Simlay Here and now I forecast that a week from Sunday will find France and Gelglum conquered by Germany England suing for peace and Rus sia not even in the fight A few hours at home and my ob servations across the country from New York convince me that our public Ibas not been allowed to learn how the war started why it started and what it is about I am convinced that the plot which cost the life of the heir of Emperor Francis Joseph of Austria was a Servian plot that the assass ination was a crime committed by a nation Even Che bombs used were traced to Servian arsenals It is easy to understand why Servia pro tested against Austria investiga tion That could have meant only exposure to the world of the Servian conspiracy to destroy the Austrian royal house Russia Urged Servia There is no room for question that Russia in support of the pan Slavic movement urged Sorvia on in her attitude of defiance ot Aus tria Every man in Europe knew th significance of the situation the in terrelation of alliances pacts and Intrigues When Russia began the mobiliaa tion oE troops in a position to men ace the German frontier there wa only one thing left for Kaiser Wil helm to do He demanded explan attons from St h got nothing Germany was forced to mobiliz for selfprotection A few hours were enough to show that Germany would have to fight and the kaiser like overy other good fighter struck tho first blow and struck it quickly Every good American appreciates the advantage of getting in tho first Germany Peaceful Nation It must not bo believed wll opin ions to the contrary notwlthstand INFURIATEQ NEGRO COOK

be found Two trips were made to the cement plants and the country thoroughly searched but a delay of about ten minutes in a garage getting an auto for the police gave the offender a chance to make his getaway After spending an liour and a half searching for the culprit the quest was about to be abandoned for a time when it was reported that Johns had gone north in a Ford roadster Mean while the sheriff was out on a search Shortly aEter 3 oclock James Bby reported the theft of his car number 10059 Erom In front of the Elks club It was a Ford roadster and when the police notified the sheriff that Johns had gone north in such a car the search began Neighboring towns to the north weoo notified and Captain Frank Campbell in one car and the deputy sheriffs In another started for Manly Junction hoping to at least get trace of the car there About a mile this side of Manly Captain Campbell got the car with Johns and two oth ers in it They were headed for Ma son City Johns had had trouble with the car and had decided to bring It back and slip out of town wey One of the other occupants of the car gave his name as Hans Nel son said he was a cook out work and was hungry He was

on the North western yesterday morning by the train crew of passenger No 25 Tie man had been killed by a south bound freight train it is thought though entire mystery surrounds the accident because at the time the freights pass over that section of the road H is Just daylight It is thought that It was south bound time freight No 132 that caused death There were only a few papers of identification on liim and from these only the Eact that his name probab ably was Olson could be learned He was a man about 28years of age and apparently a farm hand It was thought that he has been seen in the neighborhood of Joice by farm ers of that vicinity though at a late hour this morning the body had not been definitely recognized In addition to the few papers on his body was found in cash which eliminates the suicide theory A man was seen to board the freight at the city Blue Earth which station is quite a ways farther up tlie line but the train men and officers of the road are con fident that he was not the man kill ed near Hanlontown The crews of the morning freights knew nothing ot any accident until the remains were found by the first passenger TJie body is now in tlie hands of the authorities of Worth county to whom it was turned over by the pas senger train crew and Coroner 0 A Hard is making every possible effort to locate his people but the fact thai he has quite acommon
