DES MOINES. Aug. 30. Speclal Stories
of the whit slave trade that rival anything
enacted In the east. In Chicsgo or San Fran
cisco, were made public today In affidavits
by fifteen of the proprietresses of resorts
in thla city that have been placed In the
hands of officials. The affidavits were ec
cured by the police department working in
conjunction with the Iowa Humane society
and It ia proposed to lay them before the
grand Jury at once and It la expected that
many Indictments will follow.
The disclosure ot the conditions comes
through the change In the police manage
ment by the change to the commission form
of government. The affidavits charge that
the former police department waa hand In
glove with certain men of th: city, who
conducted the white slsve business.
The affidavits allege that the men lease
bouses on long time leases and then sub
lease them to the women. That the con
tracts call for (30 and 4t a month, but
that In reality they lease them for from
S2.M to 16 a day for rooms that are in the
squalid part of town and not worth more
than $1S a month. Working on the constant
threat to have them arrested and sent to
the penltentisry these men are charged in
the affidavits with selling them diamonds.
Jewelry and fancy dresses at exorbitant
prices; of keeping the glrla constantly in
debt and 'of depriving them of any street
dresses In order that they cannot leave and
reform, and that they are arrested and run
out of town if they do not do aa bidden.

the record of last year. The state fair
grounds all day today have presented a
scene of great activity while the ex

members of the legislature were, tn the
city. Tonight quite a number more had
joined the crowd In the lobby of the

practically all the remaining members
will arrive to be on hand for the opening
of the session Monday afternoon at 2
o'clock. Discussion is all turning on the
question of how to arrange the primary
vote on senator ao that' the democrat

didate. It ia conceded generally that the
organisation of the two houses as at last
session will be adopted for the permanent
organisation for this session.
Attorney General Byers said today that
there was no question In his mind but
that Representative Bergeson of Palo Alto
county would not be entitled to a seat
In the house. He served the last session,
but since then is understood to have
moved hia family to Sioux City and to
have voted at Sioux City. It Is claimed
that he will not seek' to take his aeat
and that Palo Alto county will be "rep
resented at the special session. "

selecting the delegates to the state conven
tion of September , when a candidate for
the supreme court to fill the vacancy
caused by the death of Judge Bishop will
be selected. On the action of the delegat e
selected today the nomination will turn.
It is believed tonight that the bulk of the

many have. It ia known that many in the
