Des Moines, la., May 18 (Spc-eial.)--Josepli
, Frank, National
guardsman, meifihcr of Company B,
Waterloo, while guarding the twin
bridges near Valley Junction, was
run over by a Rock Island freight

pany. Underwriters Meet Here.
Life insurance men from all over
the country are in Des Moines for
the second annual northwest congress
of the life underwriters, which opened
at the Auditorium today. In addi
tion to the regular attendance, dele
gates from four different insurance
compaties holding conventions here

Selective Service Board.
Sheriff John Griffin has his regis
tration hoards for the selective serv
ice nearly all complete for Polk
countv. It is understood the sheriffs
over the state have their boards prac
tically selected. When the president
issues his proclamation the date for
holding the registration will become
known. It is expected it will be
about eight days after the proclama
tion Is issued.
Believes Kelly Innocent.
Detective J. N. Wilkerson, who was
in Des Moines last night, stated in an
interview that to his certa.n knowl
edge Rev. I.ynn George J. Kelly is
not guilty of the Villisca ax murders.
He said he spent no little time in in
vestigating Kelly and that he does
not attach any importance to the
published statement of the attorney
general. "There is absolutely noth
ing new in what Mr. Havner declares
the ground of his suspicion against
Kelly," he said. "I have gone into
every detail to which the attorney
general refers, and to the satisfaction
of the members of the two families.
I have proven that there is nothing
to the rumors on which the indict
ment against Kelly is based."
Cheap Produce Plan Thwarted.
F. A. Schwartz of Mercedes, Tex.,
who had announced that he would
place a carload of vegetables on the
city market here at comparatively
low prices, notified the market mas
ter that he had sold his entire car
load and therefore had changed his
plans about putting the produce on
the market He came to DcstMoines
sfter being unable to dispose of his
vegetables profitably at Kansas City.
The market master says that as soon
as the Texan announced' he would
put the vegetables on the market,
spirited bidding started for his car
and he soon sold out to good ad
vantage. Sugar Contract Left.

awarded a contract for sugar to a

Eight Cars of Oil
Burned at Trego, Nev.
Salt Lake City, May 18. Denying
that thirty cars of distillate had been
destroyed by a mysterious explosion
near Trego, Nev., early today, offi
cials of the Western Pacific railroad,
on receipt .of meager information
from spcciaPinvestigators who were
rushed to the scene, declared that only
eight of the "tank" cars had been de
stroyed by the explosion and that
. the loss would not total more than
$50,000. They were inclined to doubt
the theory that the blast was the
work of Dlotters and expressed the
belief that a spark from the locomo
tive might have been the cause.

Bee Want Ads Produce Results.
Earl Hayes, 1908 Burt street, ar
raigned in police court on a charge
of highway robbery in connection
with the murder, April 28, of Samuel
C. Smith, druggist of 221? Military
avenue, is being held without bond.
Judge Madden, ordered that Hayes
be held until May 26, when he will get
a preliminary hearing.
Detectives Rich and Pzanowski be
lieve that Hayes is one of the three
bandits who held up Druggist Smith.
They hold this belief despite the state
ment in the prisoner's diary which
records his presence the night of the
murder at a dance in De Luxe hall.
Diary is Alibi Book.
Hayes has kept the diary ever since
his oarole from the state penitentiary.
he says, with the hope of establishing
an alibi in the event of trouble with
the police. In this instance Hayes
stoutly protests his innocence.
Hayes' record is against him, police
say. He was one of a trio of auto
bandits who terrorized Omaha sev
eral years ago. But, his sponsors say,
Hayes has been leading a model life
since his release from the peniten
Police got the tip which led to
Hayes arrest trom Harold Desmond,
who has confessed to thirty-seven
burglaries and who is now awaiting
trial in district court.
Desmond says he was an intimate
friend of Hayes, ,who frequently
visited the formers room at .twenty
first and Charles streets.
Tracing the tracks of the "murder
car." in which the man who killed
Smith made his escape ,with his two
cronies, is now the work ot detectives.
The auto was found abandoned at
Nineteenth and Izard streets, just a
few blocks from Desmonds room,
Story of Murder.
S. C. Smith was killed by one of
three unmasked robbers who entered
his store and held him up at the
point of revolvers. Smith held up his
hands and the bandits proceeded to
ransack the store.
Two of .the bandits covered C. V.
Warfield, grocer and member of the
Board of Education, who was in the
rear of Smith's store.
