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.

MAYOR RECK IS
POR EIRE FIGHTER
"Yes, I think we'll get that combin
ation hose and chemical luto truck,
that the lire department is set on hav
ing," said Mayor Reck today. "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."

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. He was on
, the edge of collapse, the doctor said." \

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

MERCHANTS ORGANIZE
AGAINST liEADBEATS
C. S. 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.

INDIAN POLITICIANS OUST

* ?
PIERRE, S. 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. The or
ganization is Incorporated by Isaac
