Majority of Delegat9 Favor Signing the Peace Treaty
Miss Ruby Pascoe, a dauglter of Mrs. Annimie Pascoe
of 608 West Galena street, died this morning about 3:00
o'clock as a result of a reckless leap from a moving
automobile. She and Professor Lewis Keller of the high
school had been out driving south of town. They were
on their return about 1:00 o'clock, when Miss Pascoc
said that she wanted to drop in again at the "Bunga
low." Professor Keller suggested that it would be best
to get right back to town and turned into Harrison av
enue in pursuance of that idea, without a thought that
Miss Pascoe had voiced more than a
passing whim when she had said that
she wanted to stop again at the
Miss Pascoe, urged by what im
pulse can now never be known, leap
ed suddenly from the machine. It was
going at a good speed. When the
car had been brought to a stop, Mr.
Keller went back and picked the girl
up. He says that she showed a
wound on her forehead which was
bleeding slightly, and that she
seemed dazed.
He asked her what she did it for,
and, she T.e)lit., "r don't'know."
Thinking that she was only
slightly hurt and would soon be all
right, again, and wishing to avoid
publicity for her sake more than his '
own, Mr. Keller did not take the in
jured girl up town at once to the
hospital, nor did he take her into
any of the roadhouses, where he
thought notoriety would be brought
upon them, possibly by reason of the
unusual circumstances attending the
accident. He drove across, instead,
to the place on South Montana not
far below the Timber Butte mill,
which used to be known as Morris
Rose's place. Mr. Keller says that
he had been well acquainted with I
the proprietor and expected to be I
able to get the girl treated properly I
without incurring the risk of em
barrassing her and her family by 1
letting the affair become public.
After considerable attention had
been given Miss Pascoe at this place, i
her condition seemed to be growing I
worse. After vain attempts to get
several different doctors over the
phone, and thinking that the girl'
might be injured by the trip up!
town, Mr. Keller then drove up to I
Murray's hospital and tried to get a
doctor, and findimg none there, he
went to the police station to get
both an officer and a doctor.
He could get neither the one or't
the other at the police station. He
thinks he drove back to Morris
Rose's place to see if Miss Pascoe
had been getting worse or better. He
picked up a policeman on the way
and took him along.
For Mr. Keller became very anx

Wilkes' finding a small boy chained
in a room in Ray's home. The boy,

Sherman Says Vatican
Would Be Able to Control
Votes of League on Im
portant Questions.
(Special United Press Wire.)
WVashington, June 21.-Congress
will be a check on the league of na
tions and a permanent sovereignty

speech by Senator Sherman before

of the 40 nations which would be
members of the league, would adhere
to the Roman Catholic church, and
said the Vatican would be able to
control their votes in toe league, on
political and economic questions.
