Legislature on III Hands
(From a Staff Correspondent)
PES MOINES. Lcc. .(Special Tele
gram.) In decisions handed down late to
night, before adjourning for the term, the.
supreme court affirmed the conviction of
V. C. Rogers for murder In the second de
gree for killing Hert Forney, a saloon
keeper at Council Bluffs. The case ap
pealed from the district court at Avoca
charging Elmer and John Heller with as
sault was reversed. The city appealed the
case, It involving the constitutionality of
an ordinance. The defendants held that as
there is a Hate, law against assault and
battery the city could not prosecute under
Its ordinance. Judge V. R. Green so de
cided and the supreme court reverses this.
In a suit for alienation of a husband's
affections brought by Blanche Sexton
against her father-in-law, James Sexton,
sr., from Ida county, the court holds that
letters from a husband to a wife using
terms of endearment can te Introduced ns
evidence. The letters were Introduced by
the wife and the defense sought to exclude
them on the grounds that it was the same
thing as a wife testifying in behalf of her
husband. The supreme court holds that the
letters were admissible, and this is the
first decision on that point.

IDE ASKS F0RA CORRECTION
False Impression Created by Testi
mony Before Insurance Com
mlltee In New York.
NEW YORK, Pec. 16. In the report on
Insurance Investigation George E. Ide,
president of the Home Life Insurance com
pany, was quoted as saying that the com
pany's practice of making an annual state
ment to the policy holders is an annual
expose of the conduct of the company's
business and Is embarrassing to him. Mr.
Ide said today that this was unfortunately
worded, as it tended to create the injpres
slon that he was trying to avoid this an
nual analysis, whereas the annual dividend
analysts has been voluntarily entered into
by the company. The stenographer's
verbatim report of this portion of Mr. Ide-'s
testimony reads as follows:
"Mr. Ide I mean it (the annual dividend
statement) has embarrassed me in making
it difficult for me sometimes to meet the
competition which I have encountered.
"Mr. Hughes Just what way, may I ask?
"Mr. Ide The price of business."
