ditions could easily be manipulated
to render the exercise of this power
desirable. If the house passed the
reciprocity agreement and sent It tc
the senate and it was agreed to In

an unfortunate situation Democratic

tives, search for the kidnapers of the
Rogers baby continues unabated.
Numerous clews, at first thought to

without result Capt Fred Fernolf of

served as a secret service officer Is
directing the search. -

we must not make any false step."
Senatlonal -rumors associating
names of well known persons In Las
Vegas with the kidnaping were afloat
but all efforts to trace their source
were unavailable. Persons mentioned
are respected and their arrest would
cause a tremendous sensation. Not
withstanding denials by the officers
the persoas suspected are believed
to be under close surveillance.
Public sentiment demands the kid
