have a public Investigation
Tills, In substance, was the state
ment of Detective Dave Rich, this
morning at a private meeting held in
the mayor's offices, at which Mayor
Hodges, Commissioner Woodcock, C.
F. Reddoch, city attorney, and Captain
Rich were preesnt.
While the conference was short, it
was pointed, and resulted in the offi
cials setting the public Investigation
for 10 o'clock Monday morning in the
council chambers of the city hall. All
persons who have made charges about
gambling, and insinuations against the
detective department will be given an
opportunity, to tell what they know,
and they will be subpoenaed and testify
under oath.
It was agreed at the conference that
C. F. Reddoch, the city attorney, would
bring the charges against Mr. Rich,
and, in view of the talk being made and
the reports brought to Mayor Hodges
and Chief Reeves, some startling tes
timony is expected.
Detective Rich declares that he pro
poses to have the matter sifted to the
bottom, and has demanded that all per
sons who have made reports about
conditions here to the officials, or have
been heard to have made statements,
be subpoenaed and given an opportunity
to tell what they know.

Change in Ocean Routes.
New York, Jan. 15.—Another step in
the movement for greater safety at sea
which owes Its origin to the investiga
tion that followed the Titanic disaster,
was taken today, when an agreement to
change the route of travel between
America and Europe was put Into ef
fect by all of the transatlantic steam
ship lines. Beginning with this date
it has been agreed that all of the ships
shall follow a line about sixty miles
to the south of the crossings hereto
fore used at this time of year. It Is ex
pected that the vessels will thus escape
dangerous icebergs that are met with so
frequently on the northern route during
the spring months. By the change the
passengers also will avoid much dis
comfort due to cold and heavy seas
further north.

guments for tho retention of the pres
ent schedule on sugar. The beetgrow
ers of the western states ore acting in
hearty eo-operation with the eanegrow
ers in the movement to prevent any re

Want Small Duty Retained.
Tho free sugar plan of the house
Democrats, regarded as virtually one
of the assured features of the tariff re
vision program of the coming extra
session of congress, so far as the house
Is concerned, focused attention on the
hearing before the house ways and
means committee today. The Ameri
can Sugar Refining company went on
record at the outset of the hearing in
favor of a reduced tariff on sugar, the
retention of a small differential duty
upon refined sugar, "If protection is to
be accorded to any industry," and the
continuance, of the present color stand
ard as tho most practicable distinction
between raw* and refined sugars for
customs house classifications.
The American company's position
was presented by Edwin A. Atkins, vice
president and acting head of the com
pany, who was accompanied by several
other officials. Atkins contended that
the abolition of all duty on all sugar
would cause the termination of Cuban
reciprocity, under which Cubap sugars
get a preferential rate of 20 per cent,
and Cuba gives preferential rates of 20
to 40 per cent upon goods coming from
the United States. He declared that
free sugar would open the United
States markets,to the Importation of
refined beet sugars from Europe upon
the same terms as raw sugars, In com
petition with domestic refined.
"Free sugars, while the present pro
duction is maintained," ho said, "would
drop prices here so low as to destroy
the Louisiana Industry and the beet su
gar industry, particularly east of the
Mississippi river, would depress Porto
Rico and Philippine sugars far below
the production most, and make Ha
waiian production unprofitable, thus
largely curtailing the present supply.
Once this production Is so reduced, for
eign prices would advance until do
mestic producers could again enter th
field, and, meanwhile, the disaster
would be widespread and consumers get
but temporary benefit.

The Power County Bill.
Immediately after the senate had re
convened at 11:45 it received the report
of the committee on county lin^s t
boundaries recommending the passage
of senate bill No. 1, commonly known
as the "Power county bill." Immedi
ately after the report of the committee
had been adopted the senate repaired
to the lower chamber for the purpose
of holding a joint session on tho sen
Speaker French yielded the chair to
the lieutenant governor and the Jour
nals of both houses referring to the
election of the long and short term
senators was read and corrected, after
which the second ballot for the short
term senator was declared in order.
The roll was called, each member of
each house responding to his name and
indicating his choice. Two members
of the lower house wer© absent, both
on account of sickness.
"While the immense crowd which fill
ed the gallery and the chamber waited
in suspense tho balloting continued
without change until the name of Sar
gent of Kootenai was called. Then the
first break occurred, Sargent casting
his vote for Ailshie instead of for Beale
as he did yesterday.
The result was announced and the
joint session dissolved.
An humorous incident which tended
to relieve the strain came when Presi
dent Taylor announced that one of the
absentees was excused "on account of
absence." In the ripple of laughter
which followed the president corrected
his remarks to read "excused on ac
count of Illness."
Shortly after the dissolution of the
Joint session both houses adjourned
until tomorrow morning at 11 o'clock.

plaint of his wife, Emma Emehiser, on
