Harvey J. Short, in 190J an inmate

in the county jail at Witchita, Kan.,
while authorities investigate his con
fession that he drowned the tiny baby
son of Miss Zelphlna Loo mis, ge 21,
according to word that was received in
Salem today. The drowning of the
small child was also admitted by Hiss
Loomis, who declared that she did not
wish her father to know that she had
become a mother. Miss Loo mis was
sentenced to life in prison at hard la

When Miss Loomis confessed to the
murder, Short, reluctant to be tree
while his sweetheart was confined In
prison, also confessed to the crime.
The conlession of Short was accept

New Issues of
Future issues of state highway bonds
under the provisions of the Bean-Barrett
act must await a resurrection In
the bond market which Is now In a
highly demoralized state. This posi
tion of the state board, of control, at
whose discretion Bean-Barrett bonds
are Issued to match federal appropria
tions for post roads and forest projects
was made plain by both Governor 01
cott and State Treasurer Hoff this
morning following a meeting of the
board at which a request from the
state highway commission for the is
surance of 2, 600,000 In Bean-Burrett
bonds was tabled pending the receipt
of Information as to the amount o
contracts outstanding and pending the
urgency of the need for these bonds.
Governor Olcott mude It clear that
no additional bond Issues would be
considered at least until after the $1,.
0000,000 issue now offered for sale has
been disposed of, bids for this Issue
having been requested for May 11. All
bids oh this issue were rejected at a
former meeting of the hoard as
too low, the highest bid at that time
being 91.83. Inasmuch as the lowest
figure at which a four and one-half
per cent Bean-Barrett bond hus been
sold heretofore Is 88.28 some idea of
the condtion of bond market at tnts
time can be readily appreciated.
State Treasurer Hoff ttuted em
phatically that he would not sancatlon
the sale of any state bonds at less thnn
95, but Governor Olcott refused to set
any arbitrary minimum at. which he
would give his approval to" the sale of
bonds stilting that other conditions
must be tHken Into consideration.
Bread Supply In

Portland, Or., May 4. No apparent
signs of a bread shortage were notice

Commissioner Lobdeil of the farm
loan board, said a majority of the ap
plications for government aid had
reached the stage where only final ap
proval was needed to complete the
loans when it became necessary for the

The general situation confronting
the loan banks and county associa

of Rebel CauSe
Washington, May 4. Relief was
shown both in government circles and
by revolutionary agents here today
when it became known that Juarez.
Mexico, where revolutionary fighting
always has been a potential interna
tional danger, had been taken by the
rebels wtihout a fight.
Until now the rebels have succeeded
in taking from Carransa almost half
his territory without a battle but mili
tary men here who have watched the
developments of the revolution assume
a few stubborn contests are inevitable.
Mexican agents here persist in t?ieir
assertions that further cases of gov
ernment troops declining battle will
hasten the end of their struggle.
Information available here indicates
that the two campaigns begun by Car
ranza have been failures. His efforts
to attack the Sonora troops from the
state of Chihuahua has been brought
to an end by the defection of every
garrison in that state, and the expedi
tion sent from the south through the
states of Sonora, Sinaloa and Nayarit
has not succeded, largely because of
the harassing by small rebel groups
In the state of Sinaloa there remained
a federal garrison at Mazatlan but too
