The Sago City Livery Stables and Corral were owned outright by Jacob as was the hay and feed business and the lumber yard down by the K & W' tracks.

Fugger owned 55 per cent. Morgan Holt apparently owned his hardware store, but he was utv der some sort of financial obligation to Fugger, The largest single source of revenue to Jacob wasn't really a bust n,ess at all, it was a simple agreement he had made with the Kansas; and Western Railroad back in '71 when Sage City had sprung up from the prairie.

Kllis. paymaster of the U.S. Senate seriously wounded his wjfe • and shot himself to death yesterday, police reported, after a series of "spats" over the long hours he put in as the lawmakers worked nights to finish their session. A son, Joseph, 17, said he be- leived his father had overworked in the long sessions before adjournment. Detective Sgt. George R. Donahue quoted the boy as saying one dispute between his parents took place yesterday morning. He described it as a brief "few words' over working hours, immediately before the shooting itself,-. fronahue said, the son told of heating his father call out several times, "mind your own business." Donahue and Inspector Anthony Richitt quoted both young Ellis and his sister as saying there was no discord in the family beyond the occasional "spats." Donahue said M-s, Ellis and the children, fearing that the 43-year- old Ellis was nearing a breakdown, had urged him to rest. As financial clerk for the Senate, Ellis handled expenses nnd payroll for about 2,000 persons. Ellis and his wife Elizabelh were taken to Emergency Hospital after the shooting in their Northwest Side home. Ellis died a half hour later of a head' wound. His wife was shot in the face. Police said th« son gave this count: Hearing a shot, ho ran from the! baSenieht : to the first floor .and] fourM; "his 1 t ather standing over his] bleeding mother, gun in hand.

The K & W paid Fugger a great deal of money every year, but it had a realistic attitude about it. It would probably receive much of the freight without Fut'ger's assist- once, but it would lone much of it, loo. The eastern Kansas towns that had once shipped considerable number of steers save the rail- rond virtually no such freight to day, The western settlements, closer the boot trndo, cut -town the traveling time of trail herds by days, Fufiper diverted many thousands of hend of steers from Boinp to ihe'Union Pacific in thi> norih.

This in the hard core of fact that makes Mendes-France look like a top-water politician, pleading to Churchill and Dulles a multitude of petty domestic reasons why France can't go along with an armed Germany—when the alternative might be/to see all Germany armed by the Soviet, and quickly overrunning the continent. Little Missouri channel project county judges of the five affected counties have put all property ease ments in the hands of the federal government, the Corps of Engineers told an executive meeting at the Nevada county courthouse in Prescott at 10 a. m. this morning. Co-operation of the landowners •in making right-of-way available is necessary because of various cut-offs which will be made in the streams during the clearing of the channels. Col. George Morris of the Corps of Engineers, Vicksburg, Miss., told the conference. Discussion developed the fact that where a property owner refuses to give way condemnation proceedings may be used, as in any other right- of-way matter involving the common yood and public funds. Meeting with Col. Morris this morning were county judges of all five counties which will benefit frim tho federal project. They were: U. G. Garrctt of Hcinpstoad. Erith Dixnn of Pike, Carl Mitchell of Nevada, Milas Reynolds of Oun- chita. and Harvey McCauley. of Clark. Accompanying Col. Morris from Vicksburg were two others from the Corps of Engineers district office: John'Fogg, chief of planning on Little Missouri-Ozan project; and Jack Canizaro, .government attorney. H. K.

Hi! told reporters last night he would not stake the life of his government by calling for a vote of confidence on the treaty's ratification. The crucial decison not to recomment it as government policy was made at a Cabinet meeting which lasted into the laste hours. Even as the ministers met U. S. Secretary of State Dulles and other backers of the proposed European Defense Community exprssod hop the French still mip.ht squeeze through ratification. The French Cabnet's decision left HtUo basis for such hopes. West Germany the Netherlands Belgium and Luxembourg already have formally approved the agreement to pool their military resources with thoss' of France and Italy. Italian ratification was expected to hinge on the French action. France's five 1 partners in the scheme meeting with her at a foreign minister's conference last weekend in Brussels unanimously rejected Mendes-France's • proposals to drastically change the project.

As you know this is the third year this area has suffered from serious drought. It is more severe now because of lack of moisture in the ground earlier this year. Farmers are out of water, even hauling if for livestock. Farmers are even now feeding some hay when they can get it. It is not available. The tragedy is that the market is being flooded with cattle. Disposing of them now in preference to losing them later. Forced by the drought. Herds being depleted due to loss of feed crops. It is seriously and honestly reported that farmers in these counties have only ten percent as much pasture or hay as in normal years. Grain even less. On behalf of the farmers in this area let me urge your immediate favorable actions. Even the announcement would be a deterrent factor in the disposing of cattle. I assure you this situation is not at all exaggerated. The drought committees in various coun. ties meeting today and additional report and urgent request being sent in to your committee.
