Unemployed Men fo r Kansas Grain
Fields Hard to Find.
Topeka, Kan., June 19.— Kansas is
sending out the strongeat appeal of her
history for men to work in the harvest
fields. The difficulties of the last few
years getting help to gather the wheat
before it becomes dead ripe and scatters
in the gathering w ill be intensified this
year if the advance signs are token of
what is to come.
A t least 25,000 more men than are in
sight now w ill be needed, and deeperate
measures w ill be adopted to draft men
into the service behind the self-binders.
Competition for labor is stronger this
year than ever before. There seems to
be no idle men anywhere.
Appeals have been addressed to the
employment agencies in Chicago, St.
Louis and other large industrial cen­
ters. The inswer has come hack in al­
most every nstance that it is impossi­
ble to fill the orders.
Factories are running at full capacity
all over the country. Building opera­
tions are going on'on a scale exceeding
anything of the kind in past years.
These activities, in addition to the
many public improvements that are in
progress, have absorbed the bulk of the
labor of the country, skilled and un­
State F'ree Employment Agent Gerow
holds that a number of railroads are
largely to blame for the shortage of
harvest hands. He says the railroads
need every man they can get to com­
plete their own work, and for this rea­
son have refused to grant the 1 cent a
mile passenger rate that is usually made
for the harvest bands. They fear, it is
said, that the call from the wheat
fields, with the attractive wages, w ill
draw away their laborers, who get only
$1.25 for working on tracks.
The Rock Island and Union Pacific
have given the harvesters’ rate, but
the other lines are obdurate.
There w ill be no room for complaint
on account of compensation. The farm­
ers, if need be, w ill pay as high as $3
a day for good men.
The ordinary
wage w ill be $2 to $2.50. Board and
lodging are also given. Farmers w ill
co-operate with each other, and there
will be less "stealing” of the hands of
others than in past years.
The fiat has gone out unofficially that
there must be no able bodied men in
Kansas at harvest time.
The loafer
who mn work will be obliged to toil or
leave the state.
Local authorities in
cities and towns hitherto have co-oper­
ated with the agriculturists in enlisting
the whole available force for field work.
They w ill do so again this year.
Present indications are that Kansas
will harvest 65,000,000 bushels of
wheat. The usu*l migration from the
Texas and Oklahoma fields w ill recur
this year, but this source of aid of
itself w ill not he sufficient.

Settlement Named A fter Wagon.
Arlington — Some 30 years ago a few
men settled on a fiat about 12 miles
south of Arlington.
In the crew was
only one wagon— an old Bchutler. In
some way they began calling this neigh­
borhood Schutler, from the old wagon.
A few years later it was, as it ie now,
known as Bchutler Flat.
When the
Condon branch railroad of the O. R. A
N. Co. waB built, a station was estab­
lished near this place, and is named
Bchutler. This is one of the finest
farming sections in Gilliam county, and
thus from an old wagon a name is
found for a fine wheat belt.
Special Prizes at State Fair.
Salem — The state board of agricul­
ture has voted to offer three special
prizes for the best individual farm ex­
hibits to be made at the state fair this
fall. The prizes w ill be $75, $50 and
$25 in cash and in addition the 8tude-
baker company will give a $100 wagon,
the E. S. Lamport company a $40 set
ol harness and F. E. Shaler Saddlery
company a $10 robe.
It is expected
that a large number of farmers will
compete for these prizes.
Durbin w ill supply applicants with all

President Signs Statehood
Makes It a Law.
Bill and
Washington, June 18 .— Another star
was added to the Union Saturday when
President Roosevelt signed the bill ad­
mitting Oklahoma and Indian Territory
as one state. The measure also pro­
vides that Arizona and New Mexico
mav be admitted to statehood as the
state of Arizona, provided the people of
the territories vote in favor of admis­
sion on the terms submitted by con­
The signing of the measure was made
the occasion of an interesting cere­
mony. Senator Beveridge and Repre­
sentative Hamilton, chairmen of the
senate and house committees on terri­
tories, who have worked long and hard
for the measure, were present, as also
were Delegate McGuire, of Oklahoma,
and a number of residents of Okla­
homa; Delegate Andrews, of New Mex­
ico; Secretary Loeb and others.
before the president signed the bill,
Ambassador Speck von Sternberg, of
Germany, was ushered into the office,
and he, too, witnessed the ceremony.
The president uted two pens in Jsign-
ing the measure, writing the first
name, “ Theodore,” with a solid gold
pen presented by the people of A ri­
zona, his family name, “ Roosevelt,”
with an eagle’ s quill taken from an
eagle in Oklahoma.
Afte. signing thq bill, the president
congratulated Mr. Beveridge and Mr.
Hamilton on the completion of their
long and arduous labors in connection
with the measure.
He also expressed
the hope that the people of Arizona and
New Mexico would avail themselves of
the opportunity to come into the Union
as a state. From every view point, he
said, he regarded this as the wise thing
for them to do, as the opportunity
might not come again in a score of
years. The president said that he had
a personal interest in the admission of
Arizona and New Mexico, as many of
the members of his regiment, the

St. Petersburg, June 19. — The
hargo on news from Bialystok wasli|t!j
today, and the Associated prei8
correspondent was for the first tizne^f
lowed to telegraph directly fromtk

ruin and desolation left in the

letins, order was restored this mornis.
The story told by the Awociated

the mob and the inabil ty of the troops
to cope with the excesses during the
first dayB of the rioting.
It is evident from the dispatches that
the excesses assumed the character o|,

tary, the mob and armed members ol
the Jewish Bund, who, instead of mb.
mitting passively to slaughter, as their
unarmed co-religionists have done hers
tofore, carried the war into the enemti
camp and fought bravely.
“ Merely saying that the corpses were
mutilated,” the correspondent writee,
“ fails to describe the awful e<-enee!
The faces of the dead have lost all hu­
man semblance and the corpses simply
are crushed masses of flesh and bone
soaking in blood. It is impossible to
conceive of Buch bestiality. The corpse
of Teacher Aptstein lay in the grass
with the hands tied. In the face sod
eyes had been hammered three-inch
nails. Rioters entered bis boms and
after fearful outrages killed him and
murdered the rest of his family of
When the corpse arrived at
the hospital, it was also marked witn
bayonet thrusts.
“ Beside the body of Aptstein lay ths
corpse of a child of 10 years, whose
leg had been chopped off with an si.
Here also were the dead from the Acb-
lacter home, where, according to wit­
nesses, soldiers came and plnndersdtbi

bor’ s daughter and seriously wounded
Achlacter and his two daughters.
“ I am told that soldiers entered the
apartments of the Lapidus brothers,
which were crowded with peoph who
had fled from the streets for safety, and
ordered the Christians to separits
themselves from the Jews.
A Chris­
tian student named Dikar protested and
was killed on the spot.
Then all the
Jews were shot.”
Berlin, June 18.— “ 3Ve have every
reason to believe that the massacre oi
Jews at Bialystok is a rehearsal for a
wholesale repetition of the atrocities of
last October,’ ’ said Dr. Paul Nathan,
president of the Central Jewish R elief
league of Germany. "O ur information
indicates that the Bialystok massacre is
the same sort of officially inspired
counter revolutionary outbreak as was
that at Odessa. We have learned posi­
tively that the government’s allegation
that the trouble began in consequence
of the bombs being thrown at a Chris­
tian religious procession by Jews is a
ridiculous falsehood. Bialystok is still
in the hands of the drunken Cossacks,
who are determined that no Jews shall
be allowed to escape or go unrobbed.
“ The military have deserted the rail­
way station and every passing train is
held up and the passengers plundered.
Panic reigns in the neighboring v il­
lages, which fear they w ill be the next
object of attack.
Numerous German
firms and individuals are among the
sufferers at Bialystok and cause the
suggestion that German intervention be
