Detec tives were watching all the steamships, but the girl slipped ashore unseen and her whereabout now Is not known. Both Mis Grant and Mlsa liesmond are known to have been friends of Stan ford White. The activity of the district attorney's office in running down all cities in the theatrlcsl district Is largely dun to the story told Assistant District Attorney Garvan by F.dna McClure, a show girl, and former friend of Mrs. Thaw. Than Kbent 111 Will. Miss McClure told the assistant attor ney that, while entertaining a number of guests In a Broadway restaurant one night. Thaw raw Stanford White enter the place.

Among the persons questioned by Assist ant District Attorney Garvan today was Charles Harnett, who wss employed , by Stanford White as a secretary.

PLEA FARM LANDS ARE VALUED TOO LOW Railroad Representative Alleges Ver diet of Board Is Already .Made I s and I Taken to Task by (orerner tnssmlns. (From a Staff Correspondent.) DES MOINKS, July . tBpeclal.) The executive council had not been in session more than an hour today when politics en tered into the discussion of fixing the rail road assessment. Attorney J. C. Davis for th Northwestern msde the ssserllon that the public agitation that Is going on at this time has Injured the railroads, and he mud this a further excuse for something that he said to the executive council. He ss sertcd that it is not true that the value of farm lands and other property in the state has been raised more of late years than haa that of railroad property. He showed' that while farm lands hsd been Increased from 14.) an acre, making the valuation $40.28 an additional acre, th rail roads had been Increased from IJO.IKS a mile to l:1.T48, or an Increase of 12 per cent for the farm land and 2.1 per cent for railroads. He asserted that farm land ought to be assessed at about I'M nn acre. Mr. Crunden of the Northwestern' tax department asserted that since he reached the city he had heard It stated several times that the executive council ha al ready decided to add a very substantial in crease to the railroad assessment. Before he could finish saying that he did not be lieve this to be the case, Oovernor Cummins had Interrupted hltn to say that this was not true, and he called Mr. Cranden to task for making th assertion since the council met todny for the first time thla year on the proposition. Mr. Cranden reiterated the statement that he had heard it several limes and gave as one source a local news paper. Governor Cummins told him: "If those statements have been made they have possibly arisen from the fact that we have been damned from one end of this state to the other for not raising the railroad assessment more." "If that Is the case I want to tak part of the burden of the damnlmr," said Mr. Cranden who appears annually and argues for a low 'assessment. "I have thought," continued the governor, "that aome who have so persistently said we had not done our duty should appear here now and make good." For the most part the representatives of railroad, who were the only persons pres ent, argued today on what should be the basis for mSking railroad assessments and no' arguments were Introduced that have not been thoroughly discussed In other years. .The chief discussion centered on whether the valuation of land Is fixed high enough. The attorneys who spoke today maintained that Iowa farm land ought to be valued at nearer Jffl than $40 an acre. The executive council has gone on the theory that the average value of land In lows Is about $50 an acre and that .the valuation for taxation purpose being four fifth of the real value the railroads should be taxed on the same basts. Governor Cummin read from a government report on railroad valuation whlcft fixe Iowa rail roads at $,15,000 a mile as the real commer cial value. On this basl the executive council would have to add about $45,000,000 to the valuation In Iowa. SIXTEEN ANIMALS BURNED L -1 - ' Thirteen Hariri, Tvro Jack and a ' Male Incinerated In Barn on ..
