Barnes Warns Illinois
Valley to Build
Higher Dikes.
Beardstown, III., Nor. 16 (By
the Associated Press) The role of
prophet was assumed by Mortimer
G. Barnes, chief of engineers of
the state waterway division here
last night, when he cried out a
warning to farmers of the Illinois
alley to build their dikes higher
and prepare for a "real flood." He
was the chief speaker at a public
meeting called by Senator Frank
O. Hanson, chairman of the state
legislative waterway commission.
Mr. Barnes' description of condi
tions in the valley, .especially at
Beardstown which recently passed
through lis, worst flood, 'drew fire
from sqme of the farmers who suf
fered l088. It Was jnttmatori K

andxalse tt two and one-half feet

This provoked - a
storm.
"Now what would you do with
Chicago TV- Mr. Barnes asked.
"Would you prevent her from di
verting more than four thousand
feet a second from Lake Michigan
into the Illinois? Would you cut
her down to 1,000?"
Half a dozen voices responded at
once, "Cut her out altogether."
"Let Chicago do like other big cit
ies," one added. "Let her do like
the big cities in Europe; like Ber
lin, for instance." -
In a few words Mr. Barnes ex
plained that Chicago couldn't do
as Berlm does with her sewage.
une larmer, whose 1,400 acres
were inundated by the flood, asked
permission to interrupt

For two weeks I fought in mud

Chief Justice Floyd E. Thompson of the supreme court
today directed clerk of the court to issue mandate to the
sheriff of Cook county, in which the communists wero con
victed, to execute sentence of the court. Lloyd is sentenced
to an indeterminate term, a maximum of five years, and
fined the maximum of $2,000; Owens was sentenced to a
similar prison term and fine $1,000; England was sen
tenced to prison but no fine imposed and Shipman was
sentenced to a year in the Cook county jail.
Last week the United States supreme court denied
review of the case on writ of error. Lloyd then petitioned

sible a merger with either WiUon

i of the latter concern, however, a
statement Dy toward Morris, its'
president, in Chicago, last night,
indicated that the company was
not participating in the confer
ences here.
The merger proposal put for
ward by Mr. Armour recalled some
what similar proposals laid before
the government department recent
ly by the heads of the Independent
steel corporations. Mr. Wallace's
statement indicated, however, that
because of special lesrislation
namely,' the packer control act t
which is administered by the de-l
partment of agriculture, the. pack-'
ing maustry stood in a different
position.

uwens ana England for many
years have been leaders in the So
cialist party in Moline and this
county. They were arrested in
January, 1920, on complaint of the
Cook county state's attorney, and a
few days later Shipman was taken
Into custody.
Organization of the Communist
Labor party in Chicago in Septem- i
ber, 1919, is said to have been cause ;
of the arrests. Owens was said to
be prominent in the party , found
ing and England, too, was reported
to have participated in the Septem
ber convention. , Shipman had a
minor role in the undertaking.
Owens is perhaps best known of
the trio for his Socialist activities
in this community. He has fre
quently been a state, and county
candidate on the Socialist ticket and
England at one time aspired to the
mayoralty in Moline' as Socialist
candidate.
