Bill in Senate to Eeduee; Grade
Crossing-; Accidents. . -
Senator .Nixon; Would Protect
Auto Joy Riders.
RXILWAY UES aE VJLU::3
Companies Would Cut ' Hedges
If Owners Are Induced.
Five-Foot Limit at Distance of
Eight Bods. :
"An act for' the protection of Joy
riders" would be the proper title to a
bill introduced in the senate -today by
Senator Nixon of Sumner county. The
bill, as a matter of fact. : has a good
deal of merit It provides that at all
railway crossings in Kansas where a
hedge fence approaches the crossing
the fence must be kept cut down to not
more than five feet high for a distance
of eight rods from the highway.
There have been a considerable num.
bcr of grade crossing accidents in Kan
Has in the last few years, due chiefly to
the fact that the drivers of horses and
of motor cars and in a few cases of
pedestrians being unable to see an ap
proaching train because of high hedge
fences. Keeping the hedge fences
trimmed down it would be possible to
see several hundred yards up and down
a railroad track from a highway, suf
ficient to give a driver of any vehicle a
chance ' to stop before reaching the
tracks. - .
Until a short time ago the railroads
themselves made no effort to keep the
hedges trimmed along their rights of
way or to keep the weeds down. In re
cent years the railroads have tried to
dodge as many damage suits as possible
and avoid injuring and killing and kill
ing people and some of the roads now
see to it that the hedges are trimmed.
If the railroads had the authority to
force it they are -willing, in many in
stances to do the work of keeping the
neuges trimmed if the land owners
would let them. But some owners of
hedge fences will not permit the fence
to be trimmed, the railroads cen t force
it and the hedges stand as a menace
to every passerby.
The Nixon bill simply provides that
all hedges must be kept trimmed back
eight rods from the . highway . or the
right of way of the company. - The
hedge may be only five feet high. It
does not delegate to any one the au
thority to do it but requires that the
trimming must be done. The railroads
will welcome the bill and most of the
roads will see to it that the law is obeyed
as they will do the trimming or; force
the land owners to obey the law and
do the work themselves.

" Profit Sharing Plan.
Ford explained at length the profit
sharing plan. His firm pays wages
fifteen per cent above those paid In
other Dlants. he said, and in addition.
employees eligible and the majority
of them are DarticiDate in tne proi-
it sharing plan. The working day is
eight hours instead of nine as former
ly, and no one receives less than $5
a day for his labor. Careful records
are keot of every employee and his
work is carefully watched.
"Our first purpose in establishing
this plan." Ford said, "was to give
justice to our co-workers, without
whom we could have accomplished
nothing. We had had great success
and in fact we desired no greater suc
cess from the financial point or. view.
So we nut this dan into effect. We
do not regard it as in any sense a gift
or a charity but only due reward for
service. No man is influenced to
change his way of living, or his habits
in order to qualify under the profit
sharing- plan, . .
"Yet. whereas, at the start 60 per
cent of the men participated in the
plan, today nearly every man past 22
years of age employed by us is "bene
fited by it. -The increased efficiency of
the men is from 15 to 20 per cent with
reference to work produced. This. too.
in the face of a reduction of the work
iner dav hv one hour. Daily absentees
from work have decreased from 10 per
cent of the working force to three'
tenths of one per cent."

FIGHT IN THE QJD
Germans Make Fierce Night
- Attack on the Allies.
hree Desperate Assaults Re
pulsed by the British.
London. Jan. 22. A fierce night at
tack in the region of Visny, in which
the Germans repeatedly stormed the
allied trenches but were finally beaten
back and forced to give ground for 300
ards, is reported in dispatches from
Leaping out of . their trenches, the
Germans advanced over ground that
had been converted into a quagmire by
rain and. snow, and succeeded in reach
ing the wire entanglements before the
allied trenches. . British infantrymen
met the attack and repulsed, three des
perate assaults by the Germans Then
an advance was ordered and' at day
break the British, fighting their way
through the mud and frequently resort
ing to the bayonet, captured rows of
German trenches for more than half
mile. The Germans lost 260 in
killed and wounded and 117 were taken
prisoners, the dispatches stated. The
English losses are reported . to . have
been comparatively light.
The Amsterdam dispatches coupled
with unofficial reports from Paris.
Berlin and Berne, indicate that the
Germans are -endeavoring to resume
the offensive operation all along the
battle line except in the vicinity of
Amsterdam also reports that violent
German attacks are being made near
Lens and Arras, but that in the last
24 hours they have been repulsed,
though losses on both sides are heavy.
The German offensive is developing at
Soissons, which is reported to be again
under severe bombardment, and in
thc Argonne,: the ,La. JPetge, woods; and
in. lower Alsace - where- the.iGenuans
have - made slight gains in infantry
assaults. . .

City , Officers Have So Record
of Dead . Horses, Tis Said.
Something ' Has.. (Been ' Over
looked in Sanitary Condition.
Albert Burel, a ' teamster : living at
328 Lake street, is suspected of having
foot and mouth disease. Aaron Green,
sanitary policeman,' " reported the
matter to the sanitary department to
day: ' In his report the. sanitary officer
said that a team belonging to the man
had recently died and that the neigh
bors believed ;the 'animals were vict
time of the foot and mouth plague.
Rurel's face is badly swollen. his
mouth is sore and one jaw is en
larged. The neighbors fear that the
man has contracted Che dread disease
from-, his team. The case was also re
ported to Dr. J. Ci 'SlcGUl by a worn
an who had started to enter the Burel
house, but had been, warned away.
Dr. McGill made an investigation.
He said: . ....
'I do not s beHerye if- fc foot and
mouth disease because I do not believe
it is possible for human beings to
have that disease.' I found the man's
mouth in bad condition about the
worst I ever saw but I believe he has
an. infection from bad. teeth. I was
called to see him three weeks ago:
Frankly, I was not able to make up
my mind then just what was) wrong
with him. but believed then and still
believe that his trouble is due to bad
teeth and the condition in which he
and the family are living."
Although he had Tteard about the
two horses dying, the city physician
made no investigation as to what
caused : their - deaths., . ? f . ;.'
All the veterinarians in the city,
who are listed, in the; telephone direc
tory, were asked whether they had
been called to care for any horses be
longing to Burel.. None was located
who knew anything' about them. The
Burton Hill Desiccating company,
which gathered up animals dying in.
the city, have -records showing that
two horses were, taken from Burel.
But there is nothing to indicate what.
caused their-death. ' - '
do not remember whether the
animals were dead when our men
went after them, or whether our men
killed them and I know of no way of
finding out what was the matter with
them," said Burton Hill.
Dr. Leslie Rowles. oity milk -inspec
tor. says he is quite sHire there' is no
foot and mouth disease .'in the state
of Kansas, but he didJnot let his opin
ion prevent his making an investiga
tion. If there is foot and mouth dis
ease in Topeka, he intends to know it.:
Dr. McGill turnednthe case over to
Dr. C. C. Lull,, county, health officer.
holding that as Buret's, disease is not.
contagious. "bur fha'T'the family is 'In:
destitute circrfmstcs,r'ft '1s"b. matter
for the county to care for. He took
the precaution, however, of notifying;
the state board of health that the;
case has been reported as foot and
mouth disease. -

Representative Clark Would Try Clvit

Witnesses in civil and criminal cases
will be separated during the trial of a

room during 'trial of a case.
Except on order of the trial judge,
witnesses In a case are now permitted
to listen to the testimony of other per
