Register of Federal Land Office
at Sapid City Is Placed
'Under Arrest.
Sioux Falls, S. D., Aug. 11. O. M.
Lane, register of the federal land of
fice at Rapid City, S. D., was arrested
today on a warrant charging him with
having, as city auditor of Watertown,
S. D., embezzled more than $tf,000 of
'municipal funds. Rapid City authori
ties assert that Lane confessed when
arrested, and at the same time exon
erated other city officials of Water
town. Lane went out of office last spring
when Watertown changedrom the
city commissioner to the aldermanic
system of government. The new ad
ministration asked the state account
ing department to examine the books
and shortages were found. It is
charged that Lane drew bills for sup
plies which had never been ordered,
had them approved and pocketed the
funds. He is said to have , become
heavily involved in land speculation
during the period the defalcations are
alleged to have occurred.
Lane was appointed register of the
land office at Rapid City immediately
after his service ended at Watertown.

Paralysis Epidemic
Decreases Slightly
, New York, Aug. 11. The epidemic
of infantile paralysis showed another
slight decline today and health ex
perts, who are fighting the ccourge
here, were more hopeful that the
cool weather which relieved the city
yesterday would materially check- the
spread of the plague. The daily bul
letin of the health department shows
that during the twenty-four-hour
period which ended at 10 a. m.
thirty-One children died of the dis
ease and 165 new cases were reported
in the five boroughs of New York
City. These figures compare hope
fully with yesterday's, when thirty
eight: children were killed by ' the
plague and 175 stricken.
Philadelphia, M- ".With six
teen new cases of infantile paralysis
and four deaths reported in this city
for the twenty-four hours ending this
morning at 9 o'clock, and a total of
fifty-eight cases in the city since Mon
day morning aione, me uisense is De
ginning to assume serious proportions
in the eyes of the medical authorities
and renewed efforts are being made
to check its growth and stamp it out
Since the first of July there have been
148 cases with twenty-eight deaths.
Senate Will Vote
On Shipping Bill
' Within Three Days
Washington, Aug. 11. Republicans
of the senate indicated today that
they Would permit a vote to be
reached on the administration ship
ping brll late tomorrow or Monday.
This developed while Senators Jones
and Gallinger were cross-questioning
Senator Simmons about progress
on the revenue bill being drafted by
a finance subcommittee. .
Senator Simmons. said he hoped to
have the revenue measure ready for
the full committee Monday and to
report it to the senate Tuesday. While
it is being perfected tne democrats
will call up the workmen's compensa
tion bill or Philippine conference re
port Senator Jones, resuming his speech
against the shipping bill, argued that
even if the measure should meet one
purpose for which it was proposed
and reduce ocean freight rates, for
eign importers rather than American
shippers Would be the beneficiaries.
Senator Fletcher of the commerce
committee submitted an amendment
to provide that whenever regulations
or practices of foreign governments
operate to discriminate against ves
sels of the United States it would be
the duty of the shipping board to re
port to the president for diplomatic
action or to be brought to the at
tention of congress.
