the case yesterday.
"And Roosevelt wanted more war. j
more war. and more war," Bergerj

Old Guard" on Warpath
Over Defection in Vote
On Kelly Resolution.
Internal strife among the Repub
licans of the House broke out yea
terday. The "old guard" was plain
ly on the warpath.
The cause of the trouble was the
defection of thirty-three Republi
cans Tuesday night on the Kally
amendment to the resolution calling
on the Secretary of War to sell the
army's surplus food supplies di
rectly to the consumers without
delay. With the Democrats voting
solidly for the amendment. It wan
carried by a comfortable majority.
It provided that in the distribution
of the food the parcel post servtc?
'hall be utllijed.
The disgruntled majority mem-,
bers admftted that the amendment'
will have little or no effect on the
purpose of the resolution, but thel
resolution was a party matter, they,
said, and should have been sup-!
ported by all Republicans.
Another source of discomfiture j
for the regulars was the action of'

afternoon at 2 o'clock.
| he does not think the boy has told
1 all he knows about the girl's death.
He announced that Lester Decker,
I the girl's fiance, would be charged
with first-degree murder. Decker was
, placed under arrest two days ago. fol
lowing the mysterious disappearance
of the girl Sunday night.
Dr. Armstrong. County physician,
declared after an examination of the
I body, that there wa.s no water in the
girls lungs, indicating that she had
I not been drowned, but that she had
met ?"?fore being thrown, or
falling, into i he water.
When the biJy wa* found it was
floating on the surface of the river.
Further, it Is said. there was no water
in the lungs. These two circum
stances would seem to Indicate death ?
was not by drowning.
Only Slight llruinr* on llody.
No marks appeared on the girl's
body, however, which could be inter- i
preted as those of violence. There,
was a slight bruise on the right thigh;
and another on the left elbow. Both ,
legs had been scraped near the an-i
kles. and the Hps were somewhat!
puffed. There was a cut on the up- |
per lip and the nose These may I
have been caused by the girl bumping j
into the rocks in the water below
the dam.
In further support of Decker's a* - ,
sertions was the appearance of the i
girl s apparel when found. Decker j
says that both lay down in the j
canoe to rest Sunday night after re- j
moving their shoes to ease feet fa-{
tigued by tramping through the i
And when found the body of Miss |
Harris was fully clothed, with th* j
exception of the shoes, nor was the i
clothing torn in a manner other j
than might reasonably be supposed,
to bo the esse if it were buffeted
ubout in the water.
With the finding of the body '.t
was announced that a charge of ;
murder in the first degree would be j
filed , |

The mother affirmed a stout l?e

clared he and her daughter were
very much in love with each other,
and added that only threr days be
fore the girl's death they had $or\r
shopping together, to buy clothes
for her trousseau.
Investigations conducted today do
not lend color to Decker's story.

Quarrelled Before caue Trip.
It was learned today, too, that
Decker and Miss Harris had quar

After the quarrel, which did not
last very long, the two young peo
ple. both were only 2#. climbed Into,
the canoe, and, according to Deckers,
story, after Miss Harris had paddled
a little they decided to put- into;
rhore and rest. Taking oft their'
shoes, they made themselves com-j
fortable and must have fallen
asleep. The next thing he knew-,
declares Decker, was when he found
himself struggling in the water
And neither Miss Harris nor the
canoe was to be seen.
