WHITE SLAVERY A MYTH CLAIMS GERMAN OFFICIAL BERLIN, Aug. 1.?There is no such thing as white slavery, in the sense ;n which the term is usually e-npolyed according to Dr. Kopp of the Berlin I'olice Department, who appeared as an opert witness in the prisecution o' Samuel Lubelsk*. charged with do co>ing girls over the Russian border and sending them to resOrls in South America and other cities. Dr. Kopp says: "There is a widely held Impression by the public that innocent girls, bjr force or trickery, are placed in houses of ill repute and hold there against their will. As a matter of fact, a case of that nature has never occurred. Even the various associations organ ized to prevent white slavery have up to this time never been able to point to a single case of this kind." Dr. Kopp declares that the testi mony against Lubelski must be weighed in the light of the general public's erroneous conceptions, which had unquestionably influenced the wit nesses against the defendant. There were indeed, agents who secured mod est commissions by placing women of ill-repute in resorts, but this was the sole foundation for the delusion con cerning the exltence of a white Slave trade. Nearly a year ago another promt nent criminal authority of Germany declared that not one case of forcible detention of an unwilling girl in a brothel had ever been established in Germany. There was a chorus of pro test at the statement, led by the or ganizations engaged in fighting the alleged evil. The expert answered by inviting them to submit proof of a case of the kind. They have not yet done so. 1 Canning Season Soon Here | J o :: jji OGet your Orders for Peaches and other fruits in early.

"I'm for it und I think the council will be of the same mind when the matter comes up for consideration tonight? at least I hope so." The Are lads at their last mooting voted to donate the $880 due the mem bers from the city for work at fires during the past several months was voted into a fund to be used for this specific purpose. Mayor Reek's plan is for the city to vote a like amount from the general fund of the city which added to an equal amount which former Mayor C. W. Carter has undertaken to raise by subscription I among the business houses will make , enough to get a suitable fire-fighting | machine. ' Chief Milton Winn, Mayor Reck. | former Mayor Carter, members of the - present city council ana of the pro | ceding council together with business ? men generally have been trying to work out a plan for getting the desir ' cd truck for some months and as the fire lads themselves have set a pret ; ty fast pace toward the object desir . ed. Mayor Reck thinks the plan should | succeed. ' ENORMOUS INCREASE OF PUBLIC OWNED UTILITIES WASHINGTON, Aug. 1.?Statistics showing the number of municipally owned utilities? of various kinds in the United States, with supplemental data as to Canada and England, were giv en out by the commissioners of the District of Colombia recently incident 1 al to the appearance before the house committee at a hearing on the bill providing for the municipal ownership of"8trect railways in the district, ac cording to the Washington Post which gives the following information: "Publicly-owned electric lighting plants numbered 1,562 in 1912, accord | ing to the figures, and privately-own* I ed plants numbered 3,659. In the ten j year period from 1902 to 1912 the pub licly-owned plants had increased near ; ly 92 per cent, while the privately owned plants had Increased only a little over 30 per cent. In the five year period from 1907 to 1912 the fig ures show that 106 lighting plants were changed from private to muni cipal ownership, while 80 were chang ed from municipal to private owner | ship. The balance sheet of the 1.562 ! publicly-owned plants shows a net ! surplus of $17,698,222. "Gas companies were owned by ] municipalities to the number of 119 ' in 1909. according to the figures given out. It is estimated that there has ' j been an increase of about 100 public ; ly-owned gas plants In the last twelve j years. "The statistics as to publicly-owned electric street railway systems relate to Canadian and English cities. In j Canada. Calgary. Edmonton. Port Ar i thur and Woodstock are mentioned, j In Great Britain the number of cities } owning street railways is given at 142. The figures for the other publicly owned utilities in Great Britain are: Waterworks. 1,045; gas plants, 256; ' electric plants. 334." - - - HOWARD ELLIOTT SICK; HEADED FOR TALL TIMBER * BOSTON. Aug. 1.?The American | says Howard Elliott, chairman of the New Haven, is a very sick man and has been sent into the Maine woods by his physician with emphatic ? or ders to look at no telegrams, no let ters and no newspapers and forget that there is such a thing as a rail- ' road in the world.. He will be gone j all summer, according to his daughter who said: "The doctor told him that if he didn't take a rest now, he would i never be able to work again. The strain was killing him.

LAMBS AND SHEEP BRING BIG PRIZES OMAHA, Aug. 1.?Livestock markot reports the other clay gave tho salo of 750 Idaho lambs, shipped from Bell evue by Laldlow & Baptlo of Idaho, and sold at South Omaha at a price that nots tho owners at Bellovue $5.48 a head. This is said to be tho hlghust not price ever received for Idaho lambs. * The promlso Is rosy that 1914 will be a banner year for the woolgrower. Wool has brought a good price aud there hns been an enormous percent age of lambs this year. On one lambing ground over 10,000 lambs were obtained from 8,000 ewes. Continuing on the sheep Industry the San Francisco Star says: The democratic tariff was going to put all sheepmen out of buslno3s, wasn't It? It was going to bankrupt them, and clog tho almshouses with their families, and for many years the standpat papers have been drizzling hot tears over the prospective ruin of the sheepmen. But the predictions have gone to protest, and H. Slnheim er of S. Koshlaud & Co., who knows something about Bheep, mutton and wool, says: I cannot see that the admission of wool freo of duty has had any In fluence on the prosperity of the wool growers of California. Tho advance tho price of wool is due to the general law of supply and demand all over the world. London Is the cri terion of prices tho world over. When sheep are at high prices as they are now, it ought to pay to raise them, considering the return from wool. PROGRESSIVE SENATOR LOSES IN KANSAS ?? TOPEKA, Aug. 6.?Senator Joseph L.

Lindsay, head of tho Alaska Merchants' Protective Association, has returned from a visit to a number of the cities in Southeastern Alaska, which included Douglas, Petersburg, Wrangell and Ketchikan. Mr. Lind say brought in thirty-three new mem bers for the association, and found up on his return n large list of inquir ies from vurlous parts of the district asking for information regarding the workings of the association. A credit association is just about what its name suggests. It is an as j sociation of merchants whose object is to extend credit to deserving pur chasers and at tho same time put a stop to the operations of deadbcuts. It has a collection bureau that will han dlo collections and keep a check on careless people who are prone to buy beyond their ubility to pay. In that ca pacity it is a benefit to the general public, for when the merchant is freed from losses by poor collections he will be able to sell at a closer margin. The Alaska association will co-operate with the credit associations of the Pncific Coast States und thus interchange re ports on the general disposition of peo ple to pay their debts, and thus keep tabs on the bill beater both at home and abroad.

D., Aug. 4.?Tho great (lucstlon of whether the American In dian will over take his place In poll tics and become an active factor in local and state government Is being answered satisfactorily In several parts of South Dakota. The poor, whlskey-Botted Raln-ln-The-Face of earlier days Is rapidly changing Into a keen and crafty palitlclan. Reports received In tho past week from Ben nett and Mellette counties indicate that the craftiness of tho Indian has been pitted successfully against all of the whites and a score or more of important county ofllces are now held by Indians. These office holders are Indians of intelligence and education. As a further indication of the trend of tho times, the secretary of state re cently chartered the "Indian Political Association," of White Rivor, Mollette County, to conduct political affalis In that region on a solid basis.
