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.

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requested that the subject be withdrawn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.

preme court in an Important decision, are
not in fact compensatory, and therefore
contrary to the constitution.

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.
