Cary Hardee and other state offi cials are making determined efforts to break up the gangs of wire tappers and other confluence men that infest this stute. Operations of these crooks during the last year have swindled wealthy guests from the North out of more than $2,500,000. Recent raids here, which resulted In the arrest of a dozen men, believed among the lead ers in one of the gangs, and the clos ing of one of the wire-tnpping "stores," Is only the beginning of the state's activities, officials say. ' Governor Hardee ordered Sheriff A. W. Turner of Broward county, in which Fort Lauderdale Is located, to resign his office. The governor's state Ruth Muskrat and T AWREXCE, KAN. Ruth Muskrat, a Cherokee Indian girl from Okla homa, who Is a student at the Uni versity of Kansas here, will visit China this spring as a delegate to the World's Student Christian federation conference at Peking. The hope of the conference, Miss Muskrat explained, recently, is to get students of various parts of the world In vital touch with each other and, among other things, solve the prob lems confronting Chinese students who have become imbued with occi dental ideas. Miss Muskrat, who is seventeen, has done Y. W. C. A. work in New Mexico and worked among her people In re ligious and educational work. "The primary need of my people," Miss Muskrat declared, "Is trained na tive leadership Indians, themselves, who understand the peculiarities of the tribe and can work with them. "Indian women are more capable In most respects than the man. They know better how to barter they are shrewder. This Is an outgrowth of the time when women raised the crops. Omahan Princess and Her Fiji Subjects OMAHA. An American "princess," who last snrlnc set out nn s visit to her princedom, has returned to her home in Omaha. Her subjects, although they had been for 250 years without a princess, were not ready with the right kind of royal recep tion. Their liking for foreigners is the cannibal's liking, if fears of the Dutch government be well founded. For this reason the "princess" mere ly took one look at her holdings to see that the ground and coconuts and pineapples were there, then sailed away to await some more appropriate time to assume her scepter. The "princess" Is Mrs. Louis Land- Fined Fortune for EW STORK. Julio de Sorzano Jorrln, Cuban sugar planter and promoter, formerly attached to the Cuban consulate here, and his wife, Virginia Foster de Sorzano Jorrin, twenty-six, were fined $50,041 in the Supreme court by Justice Whitaker for contempt of court. At the same time a judgment of $3,623 against Senora de Jorrin and one for $47,018 against her and her husband were filed. The Judgments are the largest ever filed here in pro ceedings to punish litigants for con tempt of court orders. Senora de Jorrin formerly wns Miss Virginia Foster, daughter of Robert M. Foster, once Circuit Judge in the St. Louis district. The judgments were filed in suits brought against the De Jorrins by Warren McConllie, a lawyer, for money lent Mme. de Jorrin and her hus band. In one suit he asked $3,233, given to Senora de Jorrin personally, between December, 1919, nnil April, 1919, and In the other $40,000 given to husband and wife in the spring of Mother Gets Baby; JPVEXVER. "You may keep our - baby's body, but his clothes be long to me," said Louis Shell to his wife, Kathleen, Into whose hands the custody of their Infant son had been delivered by order of County Judge George A. Luxford. And immediately the helpless infant wns stripped of clothing In the presence of a score of bystanders nnd delivered naked to the sobbing mother. The unusual proceedings grew from a hearing In the County court for the fixing of tempornry alimony for Mrs. Shell, who Is suing for divorce. The custody of the child also was at Issue, from Here and There the Rich Tourist ment says Turner was removed be cause he refused to raid the wire tap pers' den, although he knew It ex isted. Although all kinds of swindling games have been worked on rich win ter visitors to Florida by these bands of crooks, the wire-tapping game was the most popular. This method was the luring of vic tims into what purported to be the tapping of telegraph wires to obtain race results before the results were generally known to the public. The swindlers fit up a house, known to them as a "store," with full race betting equipment. The victim is lured to this "store" and by subtle methods Is led to be lieve he has won large sums. No cash Is required of the victim during the betting, his checks being accepted, but after the "winning" has been an nounced the "cashier" would demand that the "winner" give evidence of his financial responsibility by producing a certified check or cash to the amount of the money originally bet. Once the swindlers get their hands on this cash or certified check, the victim either is slugged or enticed away until the swindlers escape.

Fifty-seven nations will be repre sented at the student conference In Peking, and will represent more than 200,000 students throughout the world, she said. Miss Muskrat, who says her father is Cherokee and her mother Irish, will be the second Indian ever elected a delegate to an International student conference. She goes as a guest of the national board of the Young Women's Christian association. rock of Omaha. She holds her title by virtue of being of the seventh genera tion of descendants of one Princess Anneka of Holland. The property has multiplied In value waiting the advent of a claimant. Now it Is said to be worth about $10,000,000. It Includes an estate In Dutch Borneo and a por tion of the Island of Ugau, one of the Fiji group. Last spring the Landrocks went to Borneo and found the property actual ly was there. But they were warned by Dutch government officials that cannibals lived on the land. They were told the government could not protect them. Two of their agents who went to Inspect the estate never came back. The Landrocks went a short dis tance Into the Interior of Dutch Bor neo. They saw tame specimens of their "subjects." This spring, Mrs. Lnndrock says, she and her husband are going to Holland to perfect lier title to the property. Then they will go to Borneo and the Fijis, and perhaps nearer to the es tate. Contempt of Court 1919. lie asked that both be punished for contempt for refusing to obey three court orders directing them to testify before trial. McConihe said that before he lent the money to the De Jorrins "to save their million dollar plantations from bankruptcy," they lived in a boarding house in East Fifty-first street, but when tliey got the funds they sailed for Europe on a trip to meet the king and queen of Spain and occupied the most luxurious stateroom on the France. Later they toured England, France, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland and Spain. Father Gets Clothes Shell appeared In court with the Infant, clad in a spick and span out fit of new clothing, and accompanied by a half-dozen women relatives, who supported his claim to the child. A corps of women friends also appeared to back Mrs. Shell. The wife told the court that Shell had taken the child and gone to Raton, N. M., but later returned to the Jurisdiction of the court on ad vice of counsel. Shell denied that he had attempted to kidnap the child, and alleged that the mother was not a fit person to have charge of the boy. Judge Luxford refused to grant any alimony, because Shell Is an Invalid, but gave the custody of the child to the mother. Sobbing hysterically, she carried the Infant Into the hallway ontside the court, where the husband and his supporters followed and de manded the boy's clothes. Finally the mother agreed to give up the clothes and the baby was un dressed, wrapped in a coat loaned by a lawyer and proudly carried out of the courthouse by the mother. IMPROVED ROADS WAR MATERIAL MADE USEFUL Ingenious and Economical Uses of Sur. plus Supplies Made in Construc tion of Highways. (Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) Army ambulances have been con verted to survey cars for use in roac building; wnter sprinklers changed t machines for spraying whitewash oi poles along state highways; bomb proof shelters now house roud-makini tools and explosives such are somi of the peace-time conversions of sur plus war materials turned over to tht states through the Department of Ag riculture, by authority of the congress, and now playing a part in extending and perfecting the national highways. Reports from many states to the bureau of public roads. United States Department of Agriculture, through which agency the surplus material wai distributed, tell of the Ingenious and economical uses of these supplies, valued at $50,000,000. Among the chief Items thus distributed are nearly 30,000 motor vehicles and nearly $12, 000,000 worth of spare parts. In their original form, the motortrucks were generally not suited for road construc tion purposes on account of the shape and size of their bodies, which were designed especially for army use, but the majority of the trucks have been Steel Rails Being Made Use Of for Dragging a Road. altered by substituting dump bodies and hoisting devices for the cargo and ammunition bodies with which they are equipped. Idaho has converted the steel am munition bodies into bottom-dump bodies ; Maine has removed the cargo bodies from the chassis and changed them into dump bodies by pivoting them near the rear end, and add ing a hoisting device ; Arizona has cut the bottoms of the bodies In half from front to back and then used the sides for a new nottom and the-two halves of the bottom for the new sides. Near ly all the states In which there is a snow problem have utilized a portion of their truck allotment to rush snow plows in winter, and many have con verted the trucks Into serviceable sprinklers. RUSH OF PRELIMINARY WORK There Will Be No Delay in Highway Construction by Enactment of New Federal Act. Highway construction will not be delayed by the requirements of the new federal highway act. The federal highway system will consist of roads, not exceeding 7 per cent of the total In any state, designated by the state and approved by the secretary of ag riculture. Work Is being rushed by all the highway departments on the preparation of maps of the proposed system, but naturally such an impor tant matter will take some little time and consideration. The government authorities will insist that important through routes meet at state lines which will require conferences be tween authorities of different states. In order that work will not be delayed pending the approval of each state system the secretary of agri culture litis amended the rules and regulations for federal aid to permit the immediate construction of such roads as it may reasonably be antici pated will become part of the system. State highway officials are being nil vised that the anticipated route of which the road to be built is a part should lie as long as practicable, pref erably entirely across the st:ite. A map must lie submitted showing the route, other possible routes and con necting routes. If this is found sat isfactory the project will be approved for immediate construction. The State of Washington submitted on December 27 the first complete state system, and others are expected in a short time.
