SDUTOR AND AIDES
ON FRAUD CHARGES
Grand Rapids, JItch., Dec. 1. Dep
; uty United States marshals were sent

with Senator Truinaa H. Newberry
wera Indicted by the federal grand
Judy, on charges of conspiracy to cor-
mpt the electorate in the 1918 elec
tions. It was expected by tonight a

Senator Newberg, Jt was believed

announced by Frank C. Dailey of In
dianapolis, assitant United States at
torney general, after the jury had re
ported. Names of the others will be

the cities where the arrests were made.

J. E. Whitehead, a farmer, residing
near Turner, who was arrested last
Friday by Deputy Game Warden Roy
Bremmer on a charge of dealing in
salmon without a license, was released
today on order of Prosecuting Attdr-
new Max Gehlar. Whitehead is said to
have agreed to get a license, although
when arraigned he pleaded not guilty
and declared that he did not have to
have a license. He was given a chance
to get a license before he was arrested,
it is said.
After all arrangements for the trial
in Judge Unruh's court had been com
pleted Whitehead reconsidered anil
told Prosecuting Attorney Gehlar that
he would get the necessary license. The
fine imposed in a case of this kind is
from $50 to $1000.
Leon, France. By mail) Though
the war i over, residents of the de
vastated districts of France are daily
fleeing from bursts of shell and
The new menace is caused by the
small grass and swamp fires which are
following an unusually dry period in
Northern France, which frequently set
off the shells that have been piled up
to be hauled away -and exploded in
some safe place.
Major H. C. Greene, of Boston,
Mass., had a thrilling ride and nar
rowly escaped a hail of shrapnel on
his way from St. Quentin to Laon
this week as a result of one of these
fires. A French woman working in a
field near Bouconville was painfully
gassed and considerable property dam
age has been done.
In the vas, desolate fields, thous
ands of unexploded shells have been
picked up by German prisoners and
though there are details hauling them
away and setting them off in remote
valleys every day, there are still long
ranks of them everywhere. Sparks
from locomotives and from small fires
where battlefield rubbish is being
burned, occasionally sot fire to patches
of dry weeds and the accidental bursts
are numerous. Roads passing places
where shells are bring set off are
guarded but it is from the accidental
blasts that the danger comes.
Major Greene, was driving along a
road to one of the villages where he
has a committee at work, when a
small prairie fire reached stray shells
Just over a hill near the road. A frag
ment whizzed near his head. He put
on full speed but several other ex
plosions followed quickly and one
piece of shrapnel tore through the top
of his automobile. When he reached
safety he made a circuit of the dis
trict and warned the residents not to
enter the road until the grass fire
had burned out.
The French woman who was gassed
was almost a quarter of a mile away
from the bursting shell, but in a val
ley. She was rushed to one of the
Red Cross stations and was found to
be painfully burned but not internally
injured. Residents of the Alsne dis
trict are depending upon the early
rival of the Fall rains to end this
danger, which has been the most ser
ious faced -since the work of recon
Berlin. Special diseases are mak
ing frightful inroads in the German
schools. The Agar-Korrcpondenz re
ports that many children under 14
are affected, and that an even greater
number between the ages of 14 and 16.
