ALL CHILDREN OF REPUTABLE PARENTS
Admonished .Another Offense Would
Lend Them In Reform School ana1
Then Discharged by Jndare
Judge Wheeler had before him yester
day morning in the 'Juvenile division of
the district court fourteen boys whose
ages ranged from 10 to 14 years. ' The
youngsters were charged in an information
filed by Detective Weir with breaking Into
Northwestern freight car and stealing
quantity of corn. With but one or two
exceptions the boys were neatly dressed,
clean and were shown to be regular at
tendants at school.
During the hearing, which lasted the en
tire morning, it developed that the lads
had frequently been given permission by
the yard men to sweep the- floors of cars
from which corn had been unloaded and.
take home wnat they thus gathered. Thus
they became familiar with the railroad
yards and surroundings and It was not
long until one of their number suggested
an easier way of obtaining corn and in
larger quantities. A car was broken into
and it la said some of the lads carried the
corn -away in sacks, while one Is alleged
to have taken quite a quantity In a wagon.
Duvan Miles, one of the lads arraigned.
was manly enough to admit that ho opened
the door of the car and several others
made no denial of the fact that they had
helped themselves to the - corn. Judge
Wheeler Impressed upon the youthful de
fendants the gravity of their offense and
explained to them that had they paased
Ihs age of It years they could have been
sent to the penitentiary for breaking Into
a freight far. As It was, he said, they
were standing on the very threshold of
the reform school and . they could be sent
there for what they had done. The Judge,
however, taking into account the youth of
the lads and their evident respectability,
was Inclined to be lenient, and after ad
monishing 'them as to their future .be
havior and what would happen If they were
brought before him again, discharged them.
The boys brought Into court wero Ed

DBS MOINES, March 15. (Special.)
Stlllman's bill,- which passed the house
some days ago, prohibiting combinations
for the purpose of fixing or controlling
the price Of grain, was passed by the sen
ate today without change and without a
dissenting vote Tbe bill -was patterned
after the Nebraska measure. Opposition
did not develop until the bill reached the
senate, and it was feared for a time that
It would bs defeated there. It was re
ferred to an unfriendly subcommittee, but
through pressure brought to bear on mem
bers It was reported out by the committee.
Finally when It was determined that the
bill had a majority all opposition was with
drawn.' The bill will reach the governor In
a few days for his signature.
In the senate today a great many bills
were passed without opposition, the chief
among them being the following:
Bill to license peddlers In the country dis
tricts, the license fee to be paid to the
Bill to make void Insuranoe on goods
that have been moved without notice. -Bill
to prohibit remarriage of persons
within a year unless by permission of the
Bill to change the rule as to assumption
of risk b.v employe where he has given
written notice of danger or defect.
Bill to permit bunks to borrow money
for purposes other than to pay depositors
Bill requiring assessors to report deaths.
' Bill to appropriate J10.0UO for rebuilding
Bill to appropriate $400 for a case for the
flags used In tho Spanish-American war.
Bill to require that persons entering the
Soldiers' home shall file certlAcate of cltl
lenshlp of some county. .
: The governor appointed T. C. McCurd'y
to be custodlsn of the stato capltol, a posi
tion he has filled the last five years.
; . Committees Report Bills.
i Six Important bills were acted upon by
early morning meetings of the house Ju
diciary and railroads committees and will
be recommended for passage to the house
at the first opportunity. The Judiciary
committee acted on the Holmes indeter
minate sentence law and voted It for
passage. The penitentiaries committee.
Which had it first, amended it so that only
those under 26 shall be admitted to Ana
mosa, wtjlch the bill made a reformatory.
This, it la claimed, would depopulate Ana
mosa and that In order to have the same
number of persons In each penitentiary the
age must be JO. The Judiciary committee
put It back to SO.
The railroads committee reported for pas
sage the White Joint rate bill, the Weeks
anti-bucket shop bill, the Flugum bill re
quiring railroads to kill the noxious weeds
along the right-of-way and the White bill
enlarging the powers of the railroad com
mission. This latter provides If the com
mission believes that Iowa Is discriminated
against in the mattsr of Interstate rates it
shall have the power to prosecute a case
