Chicago.~Johann Hech. convicted murderer, confessed btgamist and who, ,if but a fraction of the stories of crime that are told of him are true, was one of the greatest criminals this country has ever known, was hanged in the county jail Friday for poisoning his wife, Marie Welcker-Hoch. He faceddeath as he has always said he would face it when the final moment came--calmly and without fear. He stood on the scaffold beneath the dangling noose in the attitude and ~ith the placid courage of a soldier who realizes to the fu}l that death is his portion, but is still unafraid. During the prayer of the clergyman on the scaffold Hoch asked permission to speak. As soon as the voice of the clergy- man had ceased Hoch spoke up in strong, clear tones and with a pro- nounced German accent, saying: "Father, forgive them, they know not ~hat they do. I must die an innocent man. Good by." He bit o~ the last two words ta a crisp, concise fashion, and just as soon as he had uttered them the drop fell. Hoch, after being placed in jail here, admitted that he had been married thirteen times, but always denied that he had caused the death of any of his wives. He was covicted May 20th and was granted two reprieves. A writ of ha- beas corpus was denied just before his execution. Even after his death his Jawyers declare that they will carry the case to the United States Supreme Court andhave the men punished who officiated at what they claim to be his unlawful hanging. G. A. R. ENCAMPMENT. Program ~f the Minneapolis Meeting Next August. Waahlngton.~ln general orders, Commander-in-Chief Tanner outlines the program for the national encamp- ment which convenes at Minneapolis on August 13th. He says: "On the evening of Tuesday, August 14th, there will be a semi-official meeting to re- ee|ve addresses from state and city officials, from the committee of ar- rangements and greetings from our auxiliary societies. Responses will be made by comrades designated by the commander-in~hief. "The annual parade, in connection with the national encampment, will be on Wednesday, August 15th, and will be composed exclusively of Grand Army comrades, as posts or individ- uals, and their accompanying organi- zations, the usual military bands and a marching flag. The parade will nqt be more than two miles in length. "The department of IHlnois, by right of seniority, will have the right of the line; other departments will follow in the order of seniority of date of char- ters. The entertaining department" will take position on the left of the line. The commander-in~hlef has ac, copied the proffer of Columbia Post N6. 706. department of Illinois, as his personal escort. The husineas ses- sions of the encampment will hegira on Thursday, August 16th." HABEAS CORPUS GRANTED. 'in Case of Moyer, Haywood and Pet- tibone. Boise, Idaho.~The anticipated appli- cation for a writ of habeas corpus in the cases of Meyer, Haywood and Pet- tihaue was made Friday in the Su- preme court by E. F, Richardson and his associates. After hearing brief ~ar- guments the court ordered the writ to issue returnable, March 1st. The application is based upon the extradRion statute of the United States under which offenders are authorized to be extradited from one state to another. This statute is drawn to cover cases in which a man, committing an offense in one state, flees to the jurisdiction of "another.

HEPBURN RATE BILL Committes Repo~ It Favorably to the 8e~ate, W~hington.,-By a vote of eight to five the Sefiate committee on inter- state commerce agreed to report the Hepburn rate bill without amendment, but the resolution reserved to the members of the committee freedom of action cOncerning amendmentS offered In the Senate. By a vote of five to three, Republican~ prevailing, Senator Tlilman. a Democrat, was given the honor of reporting the bill. This establishes a precedent in that a Republican Senate committee has given a Democrat control of an Im- portant measure passed by a Republi- can president. Senators Cullom and Carmack were absent and their votes were recorded only on the main propo- sition. " on amend- TO SECURE RIGHT OF WAY THROUGH FORT COLLINS. C0LORAD0-WYOMING LINE Denver, Yellowstone and Pacific-- From Denver to Walcott, Wyo- ming--Construction to Be Pushed. Denver.~A Republican special from Fort Collins says: Colonel Powers. president of the Denver, Yellowstone & Pacific Railway Company, accom- panied by Secretary Chenowith, Gen- eral Manager Hohl and ex-Governor Chatterton of Wyoming, all of that corporation, arrived Thursday evening and next day had a conference with the chamber of comJnerce and leading citi- zens at which the plans of the com pany were specifically outlined and laid before the meeting. Colonel Powers stated that condi- tional contracts for the Construction of the the road from Denver to Wal- cott, Wyoming, had been let and that actual construction work would be- gin at Denver soon after the question of right,)f-way through and terminal privllege~ in Fort Collins had been defi- nitely settled. He asked the citizens of Fort ,Collins to furnish the right-of- way and adequate terminals free of expense to the company. This the citizens are willing to con- cede provided they are assured that the road will be built on the located route from Denver ~o Walcott. As an evidence of good faith and to guarantee the citizens against loss in the event of the purchase of the pra@- erty required, the railroad company has deposited $150,000 of its corporate bonds in the three banks of this city, to be held in escrow until the road is built through to a connection with the Union Pacific at Walcott, with the fur- ther understanding that in case the bonds axe sold before the road is com- pleted, the company will deposit in their stead $75,000 in cash, to be held in place of the bonds. 2ms proposition was satisfactory to the chamber of commerce and to the committee of citizens and an agree- ment was entered into between Col- onel Fowers and the ot~er officers of the railroad company and the citizens to that effect. Colonel Powers stated that the com- pany was considering an alternate proposition, and that is to build from Walden, North park, through. Muddy pass to a connection with the Moffat road at some point in Middle park, in- stead of through Fort Collins. This route will only be considered,,he said, in case the company should be unable to secure a right of way through Fort Collins. With the deposit of the bonds as a guarantee, the citizens feel that they will be amply secured and they will now go forward and buy the property needed for right of way and terminals. The chamber of commerce resolved it- self into a committee of the whole to canvass the #ity for subscriptions for the right of w~y fund and there is little doubt but that the full amount re- quired will be raised within a few days. Colonel Powers stated that the money to build the road was in the treasury and that all the company is waiting for Is a settlement of the right of way question through this city. This matter disposed of, he said, the graders will be put at work at Denver, construction will be pushed with all possible speed and the road will be completed and ready for operation in time for handling fall trade in and OUt of Fort Collins, Appeal to School Children. Denver.~The school children in Col- orado, the future citizens of the Cen- tennial state, will b easked to contrib- ,ute the greater portion of $10,000, to be raised by popular subscription, to purchase, a silver sei-vice for the cruiser Colorado. It is estimated that a 10-cent subscription from every school boy and glrl of Colorado would bring the fact that the state's name l~ being carried to foreign shores by the cruiser, home to them and give them an interest in the movements of the vessel.

Instead of sending a cold anal more or less formal written letter to a dis- tant loved one, it is now possible to send by mail a verbal message, which ~ay be as warm and thrilling as the sender desires, says a writer in the March number of the Technical World Magazine. This has been made possible by the invention of three Frenchmen, MM. Bucherioux, Marotte and Tocnow, who I IS I have perfected a phonograph record of sifllclent hardness to go through the mails, withstand the hard usage of the post, and be ready to voice the mes- sage it contains upon delivery at its destination. A material called "sonortne." which has all the advantages of wax, and the added quality of being indestructible. • is spread upon cards, which conform to postoffice regulations and require- ments. Then the chemically prepared card is laid fiat, and the voice is thrown into a small funnel, through Which it passes.to the registering nee- dle. The record is made by a spiral, I I IH I which begins wrlung at one edge M the card and travels toward Ite cen- ter, filling the card completely with the exception of a small circular sPOt in the middle. A card will hold about eighty words. Sonorine has not as yet been intro- duced in America, but no doubt will be within a short time. "Can anyone tell me what a let is?" asked the teacher.

To be told by maker or retailer that the food is "pdre" is not satisfactory. Candy may contain "pure" white clay or "pure" dyes and yet be very harmful. Syrups may contain "pure" glucose sad yet be quite digestible and even beneficial. Tomato catsup may contain a small amount of salicylic or boracic acid as a necessary preserva- tive, which may agree with one and be harmful to another.

It has seemed difficult for politicians to formulate a satisfac[ory bill that would protect the common people and yet avoid harm to honest makers and prevent endless trouble to retailers. No gov't commission or officer has the right to fix "food standards," to define what the people shall and shall not eat, for what agrees with one may not agree with another, and such act. would deprive the common citizen of his personal liberty. The Posture Cereal Co., Ltd., perhaps the largeht makers of prepared foods in the world, have naturally a close knowledge of the needs Of the people and the details of the business of the purveyors tthe re. tail grocer), and, guided by this experi- ence have prepared a bill for submis- sion to Congress which Is intended to accomplish the desired ends. and inas- much as a citizen Qt the U. S. has a right to food protection seen when he enters another State, it is deemed proper that the gov't take control of this matter and provide a national law to govern all the states. A copy of the bill is herewith reproduced. See. 1 governs the maker whether the food is.put up In small packages sealed, or iu barrels, boxes or other- wise. Sec. 2 governs the retailer who may open a barrel and sell the food in small quantities. When he puts the goods into a paper bag he must also inclose c, printed copy of the statement of the maker which was affixed to the original pkg., and inasmuch as the retailer cannot undertake to guarantee the statement of ingredients he must publish the statement of the makers and add,his own name and address as aguarantee of his selling the food as it is represented to him, which relieves the retailer of responsibility of the truth of the statement and throws it upon the maker, where it properly be- longs. The remaining sections explain them- ~]ves. The Postum Cereal Co.. Ltd.. for ex- ample, have fl'om the beginning of Its existence printed on the outside of each and every pkg, of Posttlm "and Grape- Nuts food a truthful and exact state- ment of what the contents were made" of in order• that the consumer might know precisely, what~he or she was eating.
