TEN MILLIONS TO HOLD RIVER Captala Chittenden Thlnka that Sum Snfllrleat and I rues Action by Western States. 810UX CITY. la., Dec. 27. (Special Tele gram.) A gigantic movement looking to a continuance of the improvements on the Missouri river is likely to be started by people of the several western states inter ested. Captain R. M. Chittenden of the corps of engineers, who has charge of the work along the river and at Yellowstone park, Is back of the movement and Is urging the calling of a convention or congress to meet st St. Joseph or some other western city to take action that will carry weight with congress. In the face of the dissolution of the Mis souri river commission and in tbe face of the diminishing appropriations made by congress, which Indicste an Intention to abandon Missouri river Improvements alto gether. Captain Chittenden urges the neces sity of an appropriation of $1,000,000 a year for a period of ten years. This sum, he thinks, will bring about the necessary per manent Improvements.' In an Interview given out here Captain Chittenden said he did not think the nav igation on the river would warrant any further appropriations, but that the sum named would be necessary to keep the river within its banks. "These Improve menu," he said, "are as necessary as the levees along the Mississippi in the south. The Missouri river is constantly eating out the banks and thousands of acres are an nually washed away. The damage In this way Is almost Incalculable." There Is a strong sentiment in favor of the continued improvements and Captain Chittenden's suggestion of a congress is likely to meet with immediate approval.

LOOKING UP SUGAR BEET PROSPECTS Principal (lathering of Iowa Demo crats on Jackson Dsy Indicates Free Silver Element is in the Backgroand. (From a Staff Correspondent.) DES MOINES. Dec. 27. (Special.) The advance guard of the Iowa State Teachers' association" will begin to arrive In Des Moines tomorrow and leaders In educational work will bo here In large numbers. The program begins on Tuesday evening with the meeting of the educational council, but It Is usual for the committees of this coun cil to have a meeting on Monday. Gen erally the reports of the leading iwo com mittees will be prepared on Monday even ing so as to be ready for the council on Tuesday. One of the subjects the council will consider this year la an old one. the "Sequence of Studies." A year ago the committee considered It for a second time and made a report, but later the committee requested that the subject be withdrawn from consideration and that the committee be given another year on account of its great Importance. Tbe committee was in structed by tbe council that In making up Its next report. In addition to those studies already reported on,. It carefully consider snd report upon all studies which are prac ticable for Iowa schools, and also to con sider the relative time which it is profitable to give to each under present conditions In this state. Several matters which were to the front last year will not be bothering the teachers this year. For Instance, when the association met last year the contro versy In regard to the methods of keeping accounts at the stste educational Institu tions was on and the State Board of Con trol was being censured for hsving offered some slight criticism. This has all been changed since. The matter need not come up again. The association last year en dorsed the compulsory education bill, which has since become a law. A resolution was passed asking a law allowing directors to contract for two years for teachers, and this will be repeated, as the legislature failed to do so. Last year the association "viewed with alarm" the large number of children allowed to run Idle in the streets of the cities of Iowa.' The compulsory ed ucation law has obliterated all this. One session of the association meeting this year, that of Thursday afternoon, will be given over to memorial addresses on the late Dr Beardshear, president of the na tional association of the State college. An Innovation at the state association meeting this year will be that President Shelton will give recognition to the vice presidents and allow each one of the three to preside a halt day each. He has announced this to the vice presidents, who are Adam Pickett of Mount Ayr, D. A. Thomburg of Grlnnell and Agnes J. Robertson of Chero kee. Sugar Beet Prospects Good. Charles F. Saylor of this city, special agent of the Department of Agriculture In tho investigation of the beet sugar Industry in ithe United States, will soon start for the far west on his annual visitation to In. spect the great factories and to report on the sugar beet outlook. He has already visited the principal beet sugar regions of the middle states. His report this year will be most flattering. There are ten or eleven new factories actually being con structed now In different parts of tbe coun try, besides projects for others which msy materialize. A larger number of factories are being built now than ever before In any one year and the expansion of the business that will be shown In his report to tbe department will be more consider able than anything ever before reported. The old established fields are all being ex panded rapidly now and some new fields are being developed. The most considerable fields now are In Michigan, Nebraska, Colorado and California. Mr. Saylor be lieves that in Wisconsin there are great possibilities for the cultivation of the sugar beet, and also In Colorado and In the so called arid region of the west where Irri gation projects are being considered. "I regard the new Irrigation law," ssld Mr. Saylor, "as settling the beet sugar problem In this country. The Irrigation projects possible under that law will open to the cultivation of the sugar beet vast tracts of land in tbe states and territories of the west that will make It certain that there will be great factories maintained. All tbe trrigable lands of tbe west lend themselves to the sugar beet crop readily. I believe that this law means much more for the west than people now understsnd and It certainly means a great deal for 'the beet sugar Interests." Water Company Wants a Rehearing. An application has been made to the Iowa supreme court by the Cedar Rapids Water company for a rehearing In the case in which the company was defeated at ths October term by the city In the natter of rates for service In the city of Cedar Rap ids.

BOY BELONGS IN URUGUAY Contest in Which Legation Becomes Involved is Between Two Sets of Relatives. WASHINGTON, Dec. 27. Dr. Herrera, first secretary of the Uruguayan legation, called on Secretary Hay today in regard to the case of young Joseph Preston Ames, who with his aunt, Mrs. Sparehawk, as alleged, was deported from the UnlteJ States with the assistance of the officials of the Uruguayan legation here. Dr. Her rera outlined the history of the case briefly to the secretary as he knew It. Ac cording to his statement the boy was brought to the Uruguayan legation some weeks ago by his maternal cousins, who asked Dr. Herrera to take charge of him, as they did not wish his father's relatives to get possession ct the boy. Dr. Herrera did not care to assume the guardianship of a young boy. The case as represented to him showed clearly that the boy was a Uruguayan citizen, having been born In that country. Furthermore, the cousins declared that the boy's mother, on her deathbed, bad requested that her child be reared In Uruguay. Dr. Herrera, In view of these facts, ad vised the boy's cousins to make an affi davit to that effect before a notary, that their action might not be challenged. The boy was tsken to New York and from there sailed for Uruguay. Several days later a notice of Mrs. Sparehawk's appointment as guardian was presented, but the boy not being In his possession he wss unafMe to turn him over to his aunt. Dr. Herrera is quite willing to throw all the light possible on the case. SCIENTISTS ARE TO MEET American Association Will Hold An nual Conference In Washing, ton This Week. WASHINGTON, Dec 27.
