The tremendous victory of the Germans over the Russians in East Prussia was won under the eyes of Emperor William. More than 50,000 prisoners were taken by the Germans, who also captured more than fifty cannon and sixty machine gi-ns. Only a remnant of the Russian Army, which consisted of more thaa 200.000 men succeeded in escaping across the frontier into Russia. vast quantity of ammunition and other supplies was abandoned by the Czar's troops in their flight. These facts are set forth in an official statement issued at the War Office today.

NIXE-HAY K.XTTLE. The conflict lasted for nine day! in the Mazurian Lake region and terminated in a decisive triumph for the Why is it that the average user of electric current in St. Louis has not benefited from the building of the Keokuk Dam across the Mississippi River? When the Mississippi River Power Company asked Congress for the right to build the dam its plea was that electricity could be made more cheaply by water power than by steam power. The all powerful hand of ncture would furnish water power absolutely for nothing, it was Congress granted the company the right to build the dam. The dam was built.

Wires have been run to St. Louis and we are using 60,000 horse power current from the dam, yet there has been no reduction whatever in' electric current rates to the average consumer and to a few big consumers there has been only slight reduction.

Three other members of the household. Dr. J. J. Singer, Phillip Singer, 5 years old, and Miss Maude Schuler, a maid, escaped uninjured.

Fire was discovered by Frank Joste, who, with his wife, occupies the apartment on the first floor. He roused Dr. Singer by shouting and telling him to drop his children from the window, as the front hallway was filled with smoke. Dr. Singer first dropped Phillip, and Joste caught the boy.

Bernice then was wrapped in a blanket and thrown, but Joste failed to catch her and she struck the ground. Joste then went for a mattress for the rest of the family to jump on. Mrs. Singer was almost overcome with smoke, so she dropped from the window ledge before the mattress arrived. Dr.

Singer waited for the mattress, and dropped to it without injury. The maid tield a handkerchief over her face and went down the smoke filled stairway in safety. The two Singer children are recovering from the measles. They were hurried to the home of a neighbor, and today were resting well. The fire started from crossed wires in the basement.

Joste said he was awakened by the ringing of a door bell, due to the crossed wires. The building and furniture were damaged $2,500. STEAMSHIP SAUIXGS.

An examination of the list of stockholders shows that the North American Company is a holding company for the Mississippi Rivet Power Company, the Missouri Electric, the Union Electric and a lot of other companies.

The United States Senate today became the final arbiter of the fate of the ship purchase bill, when the measure which was put through the lower body at 1:2 4 o'clock this morning, by a vote of 215 to 121, was sent over to it. Leaders on both sides declared the bill either will be awaiting President Wilson's signature by the end of the wook or will be laid aside with all hope gone for its passage at this session. The prospects appeared to favor the latter, as the Republicans were nue, Webster Park, St. Louis County. was destroyed by fire at 9:30 clock last night.

AUTOIST RUNS DOWN, PROBABLY FATALLY HURTS MAN, FLEES on the jitney bus line with twenty cars in the fleet of the St. Louis Motor Service Company today. Five hundred passengers were carried the firat two hours of the morning, according to the estimate of William H. Fears, president and general manager of the jitneys. "Five more machines will join us as soon as the chauffeurs get their licenses," said Fears.

Among the early morning passenger's was Rev. William J. Williamson, pastor of the Third Baptist Church, who was recognized by many of his friends along the route. He bowed and smiled la friends who hailed him Mummy was that the girl dents are paying ten cents a kilowatt hour for water power electricity, while in Cleveland the residents get electricity for three cents after digging down in 1he mines for coal to run their electric power plants. CLE ELAND HATES LOW.

Business men of Cleveland have been surprised to learn that St. Louis is still paying practically the same rate for current they paid when electricity was made by steam power. In the old days the coal to make electricity was mined in Illinois. When it reached the Mississippi River the Terminal exacted a toll of 20 cents a ton. In spite of that handicap electricity was retailed at 10 cents a kilowatt hour.

When the Mississippi River Power Company was formed St. Louisans had high hopes of greatly reduced rates. Continued on Page Two.

The leaders were planning to ask for a conference, as the Weeks naval mail line bill, which was made a part of the House ship bill, has passed the Senate. This move would deprive the upper house of a chance to amend the bill, as it then would come before the Senate as a conference report not subject to change. Such a course, however, the Democratic leaders recognized, would make it impossible to prevent a Republican filibuster. In sharp contrast to the strained situation developed in the Senate over this matter, the House made a festival of passage of the bill and had so good a time that Speaker Clark was compelled to suggest that it was "neither a beer garden nor a vaudeville show." Even the Republican filibuster was not as vindictive as it could have been. Minority Leader Mann demanded only fifteen roll-calls when he could have forced sixty-three, and suddenly permitted a vote after the members had prepared to sit through! the night.
