Police Commissioner Ringer yes
terday afternoon began a thorough
probe of alleged graft in the police
department in connection witfx the
vice ' traffic. Wilma Rice, former
trained nurse and now an inmate
of the women's Detention hospital,
who charged that she had given
policemen money to keep from go
ing to jail, was brought to his of
fice in the city hall by Miss Berger,
superintendent of the . hospital.
Chief of Police Eberstein and a
number of police officers who have
been on guard at the hospital were
also present at the investigation,
which took place behind closed
doors in Commissioner Ringer's
Mr.' Ringer refused absolutely to
give out any information as to
what was disclosed. .
Affair Not Closed.
. "The affair has 'not been finished
yet by any means," he said. "If I
fave out anything now I fear it
might defeat the ends for which we
are working. We are going to get
the truth of this thing."
"Will you state whether or not
Wilma Rice divulged the names of
the five policemen who, she says,
took 'hush' money from her?" he
was asked. . , . ,
"No, I don't want to say," he re
plied.. - ..
Miss Rice said in her . interview
With The Bee last Thursday: "I
will give Police .Commissioner
Ringer the names of five policemen
to .whom I personally gave 'hush'
money several nights a week." ,
She added that "the police are op
posed to this home because they
want us out so they can graft on
us." . ;
Mr. Ringer, Mr. Eberstein and
Miss. Berger were in conference in
the police commissioner's office for
more than an hour while Miss Rice
was kept in the custody of several
detectives in the office of the chief
of. police.' Miss Rice was then
brought in and the investigation
proceeded into the charges which
she has made against some of the
personnel of the police department.
The statement by Mayor Snr.th
that "he was going to the bottom
of these charges" was mentioned to
"Let him go," he replied. "I'm
going to the bottom of it myself.
The mayor and I are in full accord
on this proposition. If we can get
any proof that anybody in this de
partment has taken money from
women, of the street we will cer-.
tainly deal with such person with
out gloves." ,
Mr. Ringer said the investiga
tion .would not be finished for sev
In an interview yesterday morn
ing Mayor Smith declared that he
would issue orders immediately re
voking the authority of physicians
to commit women to prison.
"I do not believe this is proper,
and never have thought so, said
the mayor. "In the future when
pat'ents are committed to the home
they will be duly charged in police
court with a specific crime before
they will be denied their liberty."
"Writes to Mrs. Hayes.
Mayor Smith also declared that
he had written to Mrs. E. W.
Hayes, former president of the Wo
man's club, inviting her to come to
his office and substantiate the
charges of Miss Rice, declaring that
she had paid hush money to a
number of the policemen on the
Omaha force. The Rice girl told
the same story to a Bee reporter
and declared she was ready to fur
nish the names of policemen who
had taken money from prostitutes.
provided she was protected by the
police authorities. .
"It is my understanding that Mrs.

Feud Over Draft and Use of
Yellow Paint Results in
Shooting, Affray at
Davenport; la., Jan. 18. Bitter
feeling, growing out of the free use
of yellow paint on the barns and
fences of Ward Turner, 35 years old,
led to the probable fatal shooting
of Dennis Flynn, 34, by Turner, in
the main street of Maquoketa this
The feud between the Turner and
Flynn families started last summer,
when Turner was married. The
Flynn faction alleged that he mar
ried to evade the draft.
On one occasion during the sum
mer, raiders visited the Turner farm
at night and painted his barn and
sheds a bright yellow. The Flynn
faction was accused of the deed.
At night another expedition alleged
to have been headed by therlynns
went to the Turner farm and daubed
the fences once more with yellow
paint. This afternoon Flynn and
Turner met on the main business
Street of the town.
"You ought to be in Russia with
the bolsheviki," Flynn is alleged to
have said to Turner. ;
Turner is alleged to have drawn a
pistol and fired two shots at Flynn.

Georges Clemence&u, French Premier, Elected CJjair
man of Conference, Following Address of Welcome
by President Poincare and Nominating Speeches by
President Wilson and Minister Lloyd George.
By the Associated Press.
Paris, Jan. 18. The peace conference, destined to be
historic, and on which the eyes of the world are now center
ed, was opened this afternoon in the great Salle De La Pari.
The proceedings,, which were confined to the election ef
Georges Clemenceau, the-French premier, as, permanent
chairman of the conference, an address by the president of
the French republic, Raymond Poincare, and speeches by
President Wilson, Premier Lloyd George and Baron Sonnino,
were characterized by expressions of lasting friendship and
the apparent determination of ,the representatives of the
various nations to come to an amicable understanding with
respect to the problem to be decided by the conference.
When President Poincare spoke,
the entire assembly stood, and the
fact that, according to custom, no
applause greeted his utterance, gave
greater solemnity to the scene.'

M. Clemenceau's acceptance
the presidency of the congress was
both a feeling expression of per
sonal gratitude and a definite out
line of the great questions imme
diately ahead. Three of these larg
er general subjects he defined as re
sponsibility for the war, responsibil
ity for crimes during the war and
international labor legislation.' The
league of nations, he declared, was
at the head of the program for the
next full session.

noble one,", said M. Clemenceau.
