DISCOVERS HE WAS
SHOT DURING RAID
Walter J. Jliller. Youngest of Trio
of Louisville Robbers, Reports to
Sheriff Fact of His Being Shot.
Sheriff ( D. Quinton was rather
surprised last evening when he was
informed by Walter Miller, the
you ii j? lad who was taken in custody
at the time of the capture of the
Louisville burglars, of the fact that
lie was suffering from the effects of
being shot in the knee. It was the
first intimation that has been made
by Miller that he had been hit by
any of the bullets that had been
flying so freely during the chase and
capture of his - two associates in
crime. Sheriff Quinton at once in
vestigated the case and found that
the boy had been hit by some cf
the shot, one of which had lodged
just below the knee joint and had
left hardly a preceptable scar, a
small scab being the only indication
that remained to show where the
bullet had entered. Miller states
that he was hit at ihe time Byam
and Thomr?on were shct at and at
once ceased his efforts 'c escape ah i
this seems to settle the question of
why the boy did not make any more
efforts to escape at the time.

From Saturday's Ia!iy.
A great many of the residents of
this community have witnessed the
exhibition of many of the special
films produced by the Ford company
of Detroit, Michigan, which have
from time to time been shown in
the local movie houses, but at that
time they were not aware that one
of -the former sons of Plattsinouth
was idaving an iiinortant rart in
the production of these films.
Karl "Wagner. son of Mrs. Ida
Wagner ar.d grandson of John Wat
erman of this city, has for the past
eiht ye;;rs been connected with the
photographic department of the Ford
plant and in the last few years has
largely been in charge of the motion
picture foaturts of the department
and his special efforts have been de
voted to the coloring and tinting of
a number of their special films. His
connection with this firm whose only
qualification for its employes is that
of efficiency, demonstrates that thi
young man has produced the desireJ
results for his company.
Mr. Wagner has advanced from
position to position until he is one
of the ol:lest and most valued mem
bers of the Ford company's long list
of employes and his splendid worl;
has procured for hini a success that
certainly has proven very pleasinp.

Washington, Oct. 23. Four more
! reservations were approved by the
senate foreign relations committee
; today as part of its new program
i for qualified acceptance of the peace
treaty. Its action brought the num
j her of reservations approved by the
! committee up to fourteen and while
; it was said no more were to be con
sidered for the present it is consid
ered likely that there will be additions-as
senate consideration of the
treaty proceeds. The four accepted
tXy the committee majority today
provide for decision by congress as
to who shall represent this country
in the league of nations and as to
what other international representa
tives shall be chosen under the
treaty; for validation of proceedings
relative to enemy property only in
sofar as such proceedings do not
violate the laws of the United
States; for renunciation by this gov
ernment of any part in the German
colonies; and for a blanket provi
sion to conserve the "national hon
or and vital interests" of this na
tion. Equality of Voting Power.
One of the subjects on which res
ervations still are to be drafted is
the equality of voting power in the
league, action being delayed unti'.
the senate has acted on two pend
ing committee amendments dealing
with voting strength in the council
and assembly. One of these by
Senator Johnson. republican of
California, was debated in the sen
ate all of today and may be brought
to a roll call tomorrow. It gen
erally is conceded that both will be
Xot all of the reservations adopt
ed in committee today 'had the solid
support of the reservation forces,
but the republican leaders declared
a majority of the senate had beer
pledged to them. Senator McCum
ber, republican of North Dakota
who stood with the other republican?
in favor of all of the te approved
yesterday, voted in the negative on
the one relating to congressiona1
choice of American representatives
in the league and that concerning
the German colonies. Senator Shield
democrat, Tennessee stood with the
republican majority throughout.
Meantime evidence developed that
the leaders on neither side had a
hard and fast grip upon the attitude
of their respective forces as to the
committee's reservation program
Some senators standing with the
reservationists were understood to
be dissatisfied with the committee's
proposal regarding the Monroe doc
trine, while on the democratic side
the senators who believe some reser
vations should be accepted brought
increasing pressure to bear on Sena
tor Hitchcock of Nebraska, the ad
ministration leader. The situation
seemed to forecast a prolonged fight
on the senate floor in an effort to
modify the program now being form
ulated by the committee majority.
Johnson Urges Amendment.
Urging his amendment to equal
ize voting power in the league as
sembly. Senator Johnson, republic
an, California, today pleaded in the
tenato that the question be consid
ered from a national standpoint
only. Every other nation, he said,
was acting in its own national in
terest. Under the treaty, he said. Brit
ish colonies might secure places on
the league council as well as the
assembly, the way having been pav
ed when the peace conference fixed
their status as that of "separate,
distinct and sovereign , states."
. It was only "the pall of interna
tionalism," declared the California
senator, which influenced senators
to oppose making American repre
sentation in the league equal to that
of any' other nations.
"What is this unholy thing." ask
ed the speaker, "that makes us fear
to claim for our country the thing
that is her due? Almost everywhere
it is accepted that the United States
is entitled to as many votes as any
power in the world. It isn't denied
in Europe; it is not denied in
Canada and it is denied in the Unit
ed States senate alone."
Senator Johnson assailed what he
called the "anglo-Japanese press" in
this country which h dlard was
ready to "club and bludgeon" any
one who spoke for American inter
ests against the interest of the Brit
ish or Japanese empire.
The committee's new reservation
program got into the debate when
Senator Lenroot, republican, Wis
consin, took exception to a reported
statement by Senator Hitchcock,
the administration leader, that the
committee preamble requiring speci
fic acceptance of the reservations by
three of the principal powers would
require re-negotiation of the treaty.
Senator Lenroot said he could not
believe Senator Hitchcock held a
view so clearly erroneous. Action
by the powers, he said, could be had
by notes through the usual diplo
. Lenroot Attacks Amendment.
Attacking the Johnson amend
ment. Senator Lenroot declared it
did "not protect a single American
right nor safeguard any American
interests" and urged. instead a
strong reservation regarding equal
ity of voting in the league.
Senator Lenroct presented a draft
of a reservation which would pro
vide that the United States should
r.ot be bound by any league deci
sion in which any nation and its
dominions had had more than one
Senator Lenroot said he could not
stand with senators seeking to de
feat the treaty.
Senator Colt, republican,' Rhode
Island, declared the Johnson amend
ment "absolutely unworkable, im
practicable and unjust." He fav
ored the Lenroot reservation as "the
best way to cure the inequality of
voting" in the league.

While driving through the coun

Livingston is now located on a farm

Ashland and half way between that
city and Greenwood. Mr. Livingston

Mr. G. F. Gorham, who moved
here from Weeping Water, last
summer and was employed as man
ager of the Nehawka telephone con
struction gang, resigned his position
recently, to engage in the electrical
business for himself at Ulysses, Ne
braska, in the near future. Mr.
Gorham's resignation has been ac
cepted, and his place will be filled
by Mr. Ted Thompson, who has
been making his home temporarily
at Weeping Water. Mr. Gorham's
resignation will be somewhat of a
misfortune to the company, as ev
eryone here recognized him as a
hustler, and a very competent young
man. His decision to engage in
business for himself is further proof
of his energetic tendencies, and the
News-Ledger joins in wishing he
and his family success in their new
field at Ulysses. They expect to de
