SERVE ORIGINAL NOTICE Action la Outcome of Number of Pro testa Made Against the Work— Hanga on Rail Controversy. The city commissioners have been served with the original notice of an injunction against the paving of Franklin street. There are sixteen plaintiffs, all Franklin street property holders, to the action which is brought against the city of Keokuk, Ed. S. Lofton, mayor Fred Hllpert, Jr., and T. J. Hickey, commissioners O. W. Sandberg, city clerk, and the Keokuk Quarry & Construction company. The plaintiffs are J. N. Collier, wiiilnm iReeves and his wife M. R. T. Reeves, Laura Leake, Anna E. Givin, Effle McClure, Isaac Blom, Allan T. Anderson, F. Z. Go?«wisch, W. E. Strimback, J. L. Hardin, John M. Wilson, H. C. Hodge, H. B.-Blood, E. R. McKinney and E. G. McKinney, his wife, W. G. Blood is acting as the attorney for the plaintiffs. The action is the outcome of a num ber of protests which have been made to the city council by Pranlclin street property holders against the paving of the street. The Keokuk Electric company has been accused by some of having been instrumental in the action. In an swer to this, Manager Ingle said to day: Not Behind Injunction. The Keokuk Electric company has had nothing to do with this injunc •tkn and has taken no "part In the combined attempt of Franklin street property holders to have the work stopped. Before the paving was or dered by the city council the com pany protested against the work, but after the council had ordered the paving the matter was dropped. "Later we were informed by the 'Boston office that no steel rail for relaying the track could be obtained before the spjlng of 1918. This in formation was conveyed to the city council. "It was arranged to have the work go on anyway and the present rail3 were to be set higher and the paving •put in around them. When the Frank lin street people heard that no new rails could be obtained, they were faced with the alternative of having the old, worn out rails remain in for a number of years longer or have their street torn up a second time. They decided that they didn't want the Job done until It oould be done right. But the Keokuk Electric com pany has had no part in their pro test or injunction." "They are objecting to having their weed patch disturbed," was the com ment of Commissioner Hickey. Regret Notoriety. Residents of Keokuk generally re gret that so much notoriety has been given to the Franklin street matter. The improvement was intended as a piece of work for the benefit of the whole city and was one that was con sidered necessary. The city council desired to be fair and impartial and deemed the Improvement a necessary one. In ordering the work it did not look for all the trouble and contro versy that has attended the matter and it -was under the impression that there would be no hitch or delay in the plans such as has been occasioned, believing that all parties concerned were cognizant of the necessity of the work and had prepared for it ac cordingly. The injunction comes at a rather embarraSfling time. The' contract was let before all the later points of the controversy were brought out and the contractor has already given bond, paid out money for legal advice and arranged to start the work. The Keokuk Water Works com pany, on the strength of the action of the council, has ordered a quantity of new water main to be laid under the whole length of Franklin street to be paved, and the city has ordered considerable material to be used In connection with the work.

MEW MEXICAN PLOT PUNS Zimmermann Note Was Not Made Public in Full, But Secret is Out Now. GERMANS AID VILLA Money and Men Are Being burnished, With Orders Issued to Make Attack on the Border. [United Press Leased Wire Service.] WASHINGTON, April 6.—Reading what he declared to be unpublished portions of the Zimmermann letter seeking to align Mexico against the United States, Representative Miller, of Minnesota, in the house this after noon declared the plot Included the es tablishment of submarine bases at Mexican ports. Miller is a member of the house foreign committee. His revelations of the additional de tails of the Zimmermann plot came during the debate on the war resolu tion. In addition to the submarine base plan, he showed that Germany planned to use reservists in an ag gressive move against the United States along the Mexican border. The reservists were to quit the United States, go into Mexico and then attack the border with the Mexicans. Moreover, he declared that German reservists are now making munitions in Mexico, while in the last few days ships have delivered munitions car goes on the west coast of Mexico. Villa, he declared, is surrounded by German officers who have taken con trol of his band. Miller said Carranza, too, is domi nated by the Germans. ^ie declared that a flood of German money is being pouTed into Mexico at the present time. Miller solemnly pointed out that the Mexican menace with its German tinge is grave and warned that "we must pass this resolution now or haul down the flag forever." His revelation, startling the whole house, came in the midst of several pacifist speeches and while Majority Leader Kitchin was reported to be making up his mind as to whether *to speak against the resolution. The unpublished portion of the Zim mermann note, as revealed by Miller, follows: "Agreeably to the Mexican govern ment, submarine bases will be estab lished at Mexican ports from which •will be supplied arms, ammunition and supplies. All reservists are or dered into Mexico. Arrange to attack all along the border." Lansing Deples It. WASHINGTON, April 5—Secretary of State Lansing this afternoon de. nied Representative Miller's declara tion in the house that the Zimmer irtann plot note contained informa tion to the effect that Germany had arranged for submarine and naval bases on the Mexican coasts and that arrangements had been made for German reservists to attack the United States all along the border. Lansing declared that Miller's statement was "without foundation." Secretary Lansing "apparently for diplomatic reasons," denied the truth of the statement Miller said, when informed of. Lansing's action. "The text as I gave it is the sub stance of the unpublished portion of the note," said Miller. "I will say that it came to me from a man who felt the world ought to know about it at this time. You can readily see that Mr. Lansing would not want to admit it, in as much as it involved Carranza and probably the govern ment wanted to get tfce goods on him before proceeding further. "I will say, too, that it came to me from one of the most honorable and high grade men in the country." Miller would not sjay, however, whether this man is an official of the administration, though Miller's posi tion on the foreign committee appear ed to give his statements added strength.
