DIGGS IS GUILTY
THE JURY FINDS!
ARCHITECT FOUND GUILTY IN
Intent the Question.?Main Issue Set j
Out b) Judee As Purpose of
San Francisco, Cal., Aug. 20.?In
eloping with Marsha Warrington from
Sacramento, Cal., to Reno New,
Mauri L. Diggs, former State archi
tect of California was guilty of violating
the Mann act, which makes it
a felony to transport women for immoral
purposes fiom one State to
another. This was toe verdict tonight
of the jury iliat tried him. Five
years in the federal penitentiary is
tne maximum penalty.
^ Tke case went to the jury late today
with no attempt by the defense to
prove that D.:ggs did not transport
Marsha Warr.ngton across the State
line from Socramento, uai., 10 neuu,
Nev., or that they did not live there
for three days as husband and wife.
These acts, it was admitted, had
been committed, but they did not
constitute a violation of the Mann
white slave traffic act because they
had not been done with criminal intent.
The trip to Reno had been half
an accident. If Diggs and Marsha,
Warrington, witn F. Drew Caminetti
and Lola Xorris, their companions,
nas not missed un earlier train they
would have reained within the State
and though their offense against
morality would have been the same,
they would not have transgressed a
"This defendant," asserted the government
prosecutor, "did not deny on
the stand the truth of the essentials
we have shbwn here. He had to admit
them all. The defendant in a
criminal case usually relics on the
presumption of his innocence. But
this defendant relics upon his own
depravity and licentiousness."
In view of the contention of the
defense that no criminally immoral
purpose had been proved, the interpretation
of the statute by the judge
was awaited with much interest. On
this point he said in part:
* "The act, so far as herein involved,
provides in substance that any person
.vho shall knowingly transport in interstate
commerce any woman or give
for the Durnose of prostitution or de- j
oauchery, or for any other immoral
purpose, shall be deemed guilty of a
felony and punished as therein provided.
"If you find these girls were taken
to Reno by the defendant in the manner
charged, then the only question
remaining is as to the intent with
which they were so taken. There is
a homely adage that, 'Actions speak
louder than words,' and the truth of
jiis is quite as applicable to judicial i
inquiries as in the ordinary affairs of j
"And even if you find the defend- j
ont qtiH hi<; rnmnanion. Caminetti, |
were actuated in their departure or j
Hight from Sacramento by a fear ofj
exposure and arrest, but that never- j
theless, in taking these two girls;
along there existed the intention to |
subject them to the immoral purpose
:harger! the defend;n* is guilty.
"If that immoral purpose was one
factor in inducing him to leave Sac- j
amemo and take these girls with!
him, it matters not that he may also ;
have been actuated by his fears or
other consideration moving to taking
*hat trip. He would nevertheless be j

COPPER STRUCK AT ST. GEORGE
Layer Six Inches Thick Discovered
While Drilling WelL
St. George, Aug. 22.?St. George today
offers prospects to her inhabitants
unsurpassed in her history,
prospects, which, if realized, will
prove an Eldorado to those upon
whom they fall.
While drilling a pump at the oil
mill, on the outskirts of town, at a
depth of 280 feet, a stratum of pure
metallic copper, about six inches
thick, was struck. Specimens have
been reliably tested and there is said
to be no doubt as to its genuineness.
' The discovery was made on the
nrnnprfv nf the St. George Cotton Oil
r- ? / wManufacturing
company and offers to
its stockholders prospects and investments
of unlimited value. Quite a
sensation has been created by this
discovery and interested parties have
formed plans as to its development.
If upon further investigation and
research this find comes up t<J> its
predicted value, citizens of St. George
may look forward to a boom similar
to that of San Francisco upon the
discovery of gold, and other cities
which owe their development to discoveries
of other mines.

The country everywhere is becoming
aroused on the subject of good
roads, especially in regard to the economical
expenditure of the road funds.
Is the expenditure of the money in
road location and construction being
done under the supervision of men
who know how?
No one will deny that $15,000 annually
and if the increase is proportional
to that of the past six or eight
years this year will bring the figures
up to $17,000, is too much money to
be spent for the roads that we are
It is suggested that the delegation

have some legislation along this line.
Other counties.are having legislation
in regard to the building and maintaining
its roads. Fcr example plowing
out into and turning in the road
could very easily be remedied by, running
rnwc r?nml1pl TVl'tb the TOadS for
at least several feet from the roads,
also require a certain width tire for
vehicles varying according to the
load to be carried.
Suggestions as these are gathered
from the repous from the parts of the
countrv where good roads are their
greatest prMo. Tbev are worth while
considering and enquiring into if we
are ever to have any permanency to
oar roads, ani to stop that ever increasing
drain on our treasury.

Catron, Ky?In an interesting letter
from this place, Mrs. Bettie Bullock

I had gotten so weak I could not stand,

At last, my husband got me a bottle of

If you are all run down from womanly

Cardui, the woman's tonic. It has helped
more than a million women, in its 50
years of wonderful success, and should
surely help you; too. Your druggist has
sold Cardui for years. He knows what
it will do. Ask him. He will recommend
it. Begin taking Cardui today.

roads of Lee county, it is only to a
very limited extent. In fact we feel
safe in making the statement that
there are roads being built in Lee
county at this time that have no supervision
from the proper authorities.
The condition of tte roads themselves
at this time is positive proof that
there is something wrong with the
system* In some places the wash
outs are almost equal to ditches
across the roads and these are receiving
From U. S. departmnt of agriculture:
"Two farmers living in separaata
counties but at equal distances
from the cotton market, learned by
telephone that cotton had advanced
in price $1 per bale. The farmer liv
ing 011 a bad road responded by haulhe
could get over the unimproved
ing one bale of cotton, which was all
roads, while the other farmer was able
to haul four bales owing to favorable
road conditions. The rise in price
gained a profit of $4 to one man and
$1 to his neighbor."
It is shown in the statement that
it is common for the farmer to find
that he cannot haul his produce to
market when prices are hignest because
the roads are impassable. When
| roads become passable the time for
j market has largely passed and produce
is compelled to move in masses
which frequently gluts the market
and breaks the prices.
In Lee county, Virginia, a farmer
I owned 100 acres between Ben Hur and
Jonesville, which he offered to sell for
$1,800. In 1908 this road was improved,
and although the farmer toght the
improvement, he has since refused
! $3,000 for his farm. Along this same
i road a tract of 188 acres was suppos!
ed, and although the farmer fought the
purchaser refused the contract, however,
and the owner threatened tc
sue him. After the road improvement
wirhnnt anv imnrovement UDOE
the land, the same farm was sold tc
the original purchaser for $9,00,0.
As the road in no way affects soil
fertility or quality of the farm advances
are due essentially to the decrease
in the cost of hauling produce
; to market or shipping. Farms are
i now regarded as plants for the business
of farming, and any reduction ir

roads naturally reduces their capitalization
into values. With reducec
i costs for hauling, profits are increas;
ed; with the result that the farm

higher capital value."
