AGAIN SEE GERMAN
Developments in Keet Case
Hint at Nation-Wide Plot;
Numerous Arrests Are"
i Kansas City, June 12. A wide
range of developments, linked with
the possible uncovering of a nation
wide plot engineered by German
agents, was promised here today by
federal authorities, who have just re
turned from Springfield, Mo., where
they investigated the Keet case and
other alleged abduction plots.
Samuel Hargus, assistant United
States district attorney, announced
that numerous arrests probably would
be revealed soon, although refraining
from mentioning names or giving in
dications of the cities in which they
might be expected.
The federal authorities began their
investigations into the alleged plots
after Sprintield officials announced
that Claude I'iersol, who is jailed
here as a suspect, had told of having
been approached by German agents
to aid them in abducting a St. Louis
munitions maker as part of a plot to
thwart the traffi: in munitions to the
Search for Dick Carter.
Springfield, Mo.. June 12. Secrecy
veiled the efforts to round up the per

verification could be had of numerous
reports of impending arrests.
Some officials have left here mys
teriously on missions which took them
to unannounced points in the middle
west. No definite information was ob
tainable as to their exact destination.
Authorities were pressing hard
their search for Dick Carter against
whom a murder warrant has been issued.
Coroner Eh Paxson announced to
day that he had subpoenaed only six
witnesses for the Keet inquest tomor
row. Four of therruwere the business
men who found the baby's body in an
old well on the deserted Crenshaw
farm last Saturday.

Fight Between Colorado
Guards and Motor Party
Denver, Colo., June 12. Shots were
fired by guards at a smelter in this
part of the state last night at an auto
mobile party of five men who crossed
a "dead line" surrounding the plant
after one of the automobilists at
tacked a guard. '
The party, including the man at
tacking the guard, escaped in the ma

According to a guard, the men
drove near the smelter and at first
declined to halt at his command.
When the car stopped one of the
men got out and attacked him. While
he lay powerless on the ground his
attacker got into the automobile again
and it drove away rapidly. Other
guards fired at the retreating machine,
but with what effect is unknown.
Taft SaysU S. to Hold
Final Balance of Power
Pittsburgh, June 12. William H.
Taft, speaking yesterday at a general
meeting of the National Conference
of Charities and Corrections, whose
subject was "International Adjust
ment After the War," declared that
the United States would have to put
billions of money and millions of men
into the struggle. This, he contin
ued, would give the country, when
the nations were gathered around the
peace table, the right to say "we
demand a just peace, and no peace
can be a just peace unless it is a last
Mr. Taft described the acts of Ger
many against the United States as
"deliberate murder" and continued:
"We are in this war because we are
not willing to admit that we are no
longer an independent nation and that
our citizens have no right to free
dom and happiness whether it be upon
the sea or on the land. We have not
gone into it from any jingo spirit.
"The kings of England and Italy
do not exercise any more power in
their respective countries than does
an ex-president of(the United States
here. They reign the people rule."
