Hlver Improvement Dead.
It is feared that the plans for Improving
the Dcs Moines and Racoon rivers here
for averting floods are dead. The 2-mill
levy authorized by the legislature for that
purpose will raise but $320,000, and the
lowest bid Is for $328,000, and the property
to be condemned will run the amount $50,
000 higher. An attempt may be made to
find some other plan for making the im
provements. St. Joseph Girl Saved.
Miss Bessie Stennett, a high school girl
of St. Joseph, Mo., was taken charge of
by tho police on the streets here last night
She had answered a matrimonial adver
tisement and came to Des Moines to meet
the man she was to marry. Instead of the
man two women appeared at the Union
depot at midnight after the girl had wulted
there for a couplt of hours. They suc
ceeded in getting the girl's story and vol
unteered to take her home with them for
the night. They were hurrying her to the
demimonde district in East Des Moines,
when detectives accidentally met them and
took the girl from them. She was sent
back to St. Joseph tuday.

tions of Indictment.
CHICAtJO, May S. in presenting argu
ment today on his motion for a new trial
in the Standard Oil rebate case recently
decided against that company in the fed
eral court. Attorney John ti. Miller declared
that the Klkina act as applied to interstate
shipments is In violation of the fourteenth
article of the constitution of the United
Tne attorney announced that at he com
menceinent of his argument without preju
dice to the motion for a new tria. he would
ulso move for an arrest of Judgment.
It was claimed by Miller that the govern-
ment during the trial failed to prove tho
material declarations of the Indictments.
He said no competent testimony was in
troduced which warranted the submission
of the case to the Jury. 11 declared fur
ther that the Elkins law as applied to
Interstate shipments in this case is In vio
lation of the constitution because It de
prives shippers of the liberty and th right
to transport goods from one state to an
other In this country.
Attorney Miller then reviewed th. evi
dence in detail.
It Is probable the arguments In behalf
of a new trial will consume all ot today
and most of tomorrow.
