Full Special Service of
United Press During Both
New York, Ma- 29. In covering
tho national conventions next month
at Chicago and St. Louis, the United
Press will pursue the same course it
lias followed throughout the great war
in Europe and m covering other extra
ordinary news events. Tho United
Press theory is that its own staff cor
respondents are best equipped to nieet
the demands of convention reporting.
At both the Chicago and St. Louis
conventions, the United Press will de
pend largely upon a specially chosen
staff of its best men for convention
service. These will be under the gen
eral charge of Roy W. Howard, pres
ident of the United Press, assisted by
Fred S. Ferguson, acting news manager.
They will include Perry Arnold, Lowell
Mellctt, George Martin, Karl A. nickel,
Carl D. Groat, .1. P. Voder, N. C. Parke,
A. J. Eldred, itobert J. Bender and 11.
Special wires will be run direH to
the United Press reservation next to
the speakers' platform in the Chicago
and St. Ioiiis convention halls. In
both cities a special work room will
bo fitted, up under the speakers' ros
trum. William F. Lynch, superintendent of
telegraph of the United Press, will be
in general ch.uge of the wire arrange
ments. It is probable that the actual
sending from tho convention hall will
be done by lioscoe Johnson, chief op
erator of the Chicago division, rated
as one of the star key men of the coun
try. The United Tress headquarters at
Chicago will be in the Coi.gress hotel
and in St. Louis at tho Jei'fersor.,
STATE FA!R TICKET
Indictments Against Rex
iurner and Cleve Simpkins
The indictments against both Rex A.
Turner and C'lcve Simpkins, charged
with appropriating state funds to their
5wn use, were dismissed by Judge
Percy R. Kelly in Department" number
1 of the circuit court todav upun mo
tion of District Attorney K. R. Ringo.
Tho district attorney stated in his mo
tion that one of the witnesses for the
state had removed from Oregon mid
that most of the others were helpers at
the state fair last year and had re
turned to their homes in other counties
and that it would cost a large sum to
gel them here for another trial. In
consideration of the fact that it would
cost less to dismiss the ease than to
try it again a motion for dismissal on
the grounds of insufficient evidence
Tho motion also stated that when it
was decided to try Turner first, the
move was mado because the evidence
against him was stronger than against
Simpkins. When the jury failed to con-

The indictments against both of the
defendants were dismissed and their
suretios exonornted. Simpkins, who is
a senior at tho University of Oregon,
will now be enabled to graduate which
he could not hove done with an indict
ment hanging over him.
After the case was dismissed Attor
ney Jas. G. Heltzel, who was employed
as special counsel in the case, said:
"Owing to the interest the public has
taken in this case we were reluctant to
move for a dismissal, but since the last
trial the district attorney and 1 have
given the matter very careful thought
and have canvassed the situation fully
and finnlly concluded, after talking
with all the jurors who were on the
other case, and other people who hard

Prison authorities here are investi

who had become incensed at Warden

order had been made to prevent gamb

Pctnograd, May 2!) Russia will fight
20 years if necessary until Germany is
forced to accept allied terms of peace,
Michael Rodzinnko, president of tho
du ma, told the United Press in an ex
clusive interview today. He scoffed at
tho danger of revolution in the czar 'a
"There is no pence party in Russia,"
said Rodziunko. "That is a German lie.
The duma is solid in its demand that
Russia continue to fight until Oerniaay
puts her cannon in a pile and aecepU
the allies' conditions.
"The emperor, the duma and th
ponsants aro united in this. Tell this
to tho people of America as emphatical
ly as you can."
Rodzianko has just arrived from his
home in the provinces for the purpose
o'f reopening the duma today.
"You need not accept my word ex
clusively," he said. "You are wcU
eome to tho floor of the duma where
you can talk to anyone. All will tell
what I have told you. Russian peas
ants know the meaning of German
hegmony. They are for war. We will
fight 20 years if necessary to abolish
this menace. We will force the kaiser
to accept orrr terms. Pence on any
other basis would be unthinkable.
1 ' Russia would refuse to accept even
if the allies would and the allies
would not. Peace propagandas now in
circulation are unfriendly to the al
lies." Rodzianko was asked if the duma
would attempt reforms.
"This iH no timo for such legisla
tion, " ho roplied. "Wo will devote the
session first to war measures r vict
ualing the army, etc.; second to econ
omic, problems growing out of the war
and third to the strengthening o'f )oul
"I cannot say how long it will re
main in session, but we arc not afraid
of its dissolution. The duma is working
protty well with the government. It
will finish its program early, however,
as tho duma is composed of agrarian
wlifi must adjourn before harvtstt
which comes shortly." '
Asked tho reason for the dunia's re
