A special representative of the legal de

engineering the probe. The state offi
cials of the plumbers' organization have
been before the grand Jury and plumbers
from all over tho state have been sum
moned to Sioux City to undergo examina

in Dei Moines a number ot those who

The method pursued Is Identical with
that in some other combinations that
have been broken up as the result of In
vestigations. No person other than a
member of tho association can purchase
goods of tho manufacturers and Jobbers
of plumbing goods except In rare cases.
No member of the association will do any
work except on his own contracts. The
prices of goods and labor are fixed by a
price book ot some kind which Is fur
nished the members. In short. It Is prac
tically Impossible for nnyono to do busi
ness cutsldo of the association or to do
business on any basis other than that
approved by the state or local officials.
Tiie result Is that plumbing prices have
been for all cities ot Iowa abnormally
high and this has caused an Investiga
tion Into the affairs. What really started
the probe was an effort to chargo more
ttian a fair price for work for Judgo Van
Wagenen, the United States attorney for

state association live in Dos Moines.
Democrats Shovr a New Division.
A wldo division among the democrats
of Iowa is shown recently and It seems
probnble the cleavage will be such It
cannot bo repaired before tho next state
campaign. Tho new feature is a move
ment emanating from Des Moines poli
ticians to bring out as a candidate for
United States senator on the democratic
ticket Fred H White of Keokuk county.
Mr. White Is a farmer and old soldier
and, although about 77 years old, Is qulto
vigorous. Ho was formerly one of the
most aggressive speakers on the stump
In Iowa. Ho was elected to congress and
made a good record, later being a candi
date for governor twice. He Is brought
out largely because he was an original
Wilson man and could be relied on to
represent the views of Wilson lh the Ben
ate, wjille other candidates mentioned
were oposed to the nomination ot Wilson.
But also there are other reasons, as, for
Instance, there is opposition to one can
didate mentioned because he Is a Knight
of Columbus and. to another because he
Is an active temperance worker. "But,
In the main, the White candidacy means
that the democrats of the state are not
going to bo united on their candidates
for Wading positions neither at the
primary nor later In the year.
Object to Diversion of Funds.
The Old Colony Trust company re
ceivers for the Port Dodge, Des Moines
and Southern, Wlckard brothers and
about 150 other Interveners have filed ob
jection to the recent ruling of the federal
court providing for the deposit with tho
court K.137.W to be held for one year
from September 15 for the reimbursement
of citizens of Newton In tho event tho
railroad does not resume operations with

Xo Specialist In Ijplrtemlca,
An agent to chase all epidemics In

and keep them corraled has not yet been
named, though the legislature provided
(9,000 a year for that purpose. It Is the
only money In sight which nobody has
been authorized to take. Reason dis
agreement as to who should boss the Job.
The appropriation Is a part of the state
university appropriatoin, but the only
place the state university could attach It
would be to the bacteriological laboratory',
which doesnt need an "epidemiologist."
It was Intended tfaat the tate Board ot
Health should have use of the money
or the agent, but the appropriation was
tccked on at the wrong place. The only
way will be to have the state university
arrange for a specialist in epidemics and
permit him to be directed by the state
health authorities and this may be done.

set upon the wagons, tore off the signs
