Has Commenced Nine Suits for

ing in Topeka.
McPherson. Kan., April 21. John fa.
Dawson, attorney general, has filed m
the district court for McPherson county
en application for an injunction to re-J
strain John F. Hanson irom riaiBi' s
the state officials in charge of the To
peka state hospital and from disturb
ing the patients at the hospital. Han
eon has brouclit habeas corpus actions
In the Shawnee county court to secure
the release of Swan Johnson, John H.
Phelps, Mulligan McNulty, B. F. Os
borne, John Myers. ' U. . S. Richard,
Marion Jilston and diaries1 H. Fleming
from the Topeka hospital for the In
sane. The cases of Richard, Jilston and
Fleming have not been heard but the
court ordered all the other patients
taken back to the hospital at once and
jwithout more examination than a view
f the men as all the patients had to
fee brought to the court room in chains.
' Mr. Dawson's Charges.
John Dawson makes some serious ac
cusations against a brother practition
er in the law. Just notice the crimes
end misdemeanors that the attorney
general enumerates against Hanson in
the third section of the petition, which
"The defendant, John F. Hanson, un
ifier the guise and pretence of practicing
the profession of law has been guilty,
end now is guilty of the practice of
harratry, champerty and maintenance
and arts and practices of a similar
character and akin thereto, by solicit
ing and importuning certain inmates of
the Topeka state hospital who are af
flicted with mental derangement and of
unsound mind to be engaged and em
ployed as a lawyer for such inmates to
procure their release and discharge by
proceedings in. the nature of habeas
corpus and other proceedings of a sim
ilar nature, and . .the defendant has
harassed and does harass and annoy
the officers, agents, servants, physi
cians and employees of the plaintiff
with suits, proceedings and inquisitions
In the nature of habeas corpus and
other rroceedings of a like nature, and
euch suits and proceedings ' are not
brought in good faith nor upon prob-'
able cause but are brought upon ar
rangements and agreements procured
and solicited by the defendant with the
Irresponsible inmates of the plaintiffs
Institution as 'aforesaid, and plaintiff
alleges that all of said arrangements
and .agreements between the defendant
and the said inmates of unsound mind
confined in the plaintiffs institutions
are null and void and are no authority
for the institution of proceedings by a
responsible and reputable lawyer in
any court of law and Justice in this
Kelies on Common Law.
There may be other crimes on the
calendar, but they are of very small
moment compared to those 'cited in
the petition, whatever tbey are. May
be the lawyers know all about what
the big words mean, but John Daw
son had to go back three hundred
years and do a lot of studying of the
old common Jaw of Kngland to find
them. Barratry means that Hanson
lias been a gay deceiver or tried to'
be and champerty means that he had
no legitimate reason for being a party
to the suits. .
As reason for urging the injunc
tion, against Hanson, the petition of
the attorney general savs:
"That for the proper care, keeping,
treatment and cure of the inmates of
the plaintiffs institutions as aforesaid,
quiet, rest and freedom from worldly
cares and concerns of every sort are
necessary and any disturbance of their
quiet and seclusion postpones and de
lays their oure and frequently and
commonly renders their proper treat
ment and cure impossible.
"And plaintiff further says that in
fcome of the suits and proceedings so
brought by the defendant, the lunacy
and maniacal affliction ot "the patient
end inmate has been so apparent to
the probate court of Shawnee county,
before whom it was brought, that the
court upon view of the patient and
without further examination was
compelled to. dirert hin instant return
to the, plaintiffs Topeka state hospi
tal for the insane. . -
"That among the cases so brought
by the defendant for persona of' un
sound mind and confined in the. To
peka State hospital were those of"
Hwan Johnson. John H.- Phelps, Mul
ligan McNulty. B. F. Osborne and
John Meyers, and in each and all of
said cases the patients and inmates
were returned to the Topeka State
Hospital as patients of unsound mind.
And other cases of a similar character
brought by the defendant not yet dis
posed of. but now pending in the pro
bate court of Shawnee county. Kan
sas are: Ulysses Simon Richard,
Marion Jilston and Charles H. Flem
ing, all of whom are afflicted with
mental unsoundness, nor did the de
fendant have any reasonable ground
upon which to base such suits or any
"Plaintiff further alleges that the
defendant has solicited other inmates
of unsound mind now confined in the
plaintiff's institutions for the insane
and has solicited and engaged relatives
and fi 'ends of swh inmates by bar

aid and assist the defendant in procur

New Ordinance "Will Provide for
Buying of City Bonds.
Law Being Prepared by
Next week Chief Wilmarth of the fire
department will submit to the city
commissioners an .ordinance providing
for the pensioning of the city .firemen.
This ordinance will embody, also, a
provision allowing the Firemen's Relief
association the right to invest their
funds in city bonds at a rate not less
than 4 per cent.
This important measure is now in the
hands of W. C. Ralston, city attorney.
It was prepared by Chief Wilmarth and
sent to the attorney's office for legal
polish. When the city attorney rubs
over the law points the manuscript will
be given to the fire chief for final ap
proval before it reaches the commis
sioners. Then its fate will rest in their
lais new feature will complete the
claims made that the Topeka fire de
partment is the best equipped, the best
managed and the best disciplined of
any city of 75,000 or less in the United
States. Without the pension advant
ages Topeka was able to show the best
record of any other city and with
these features it is expected that the
department will be able to keep in
service the high grade men now em
ployed. Through the efforts of Chief Wil
marth, Topeka has been able to obtain
a better class of young men for fire
fighting work. The chief with his civil
service methods and his high standards
has placed a ban on firemen with
physical and moral defects. As a re
sult he has now in service 50 stalwart,
efficient and highly disciplined fire
A Fireman's Advantages.
With the pension system inaugurated
into the department. Chief Wilmarth
expects to keep this force intact.
When the new law passes the city
commissioners and is carried as a
strength to the old laws, firemen in To
peka service will have the following
After being in the service 20 years
and it is found they are unfit for ser
vice through physical or mental de
fects, long service, advanced age, ill
ness or injuries in performance of
duties, a pension of one-half the salary
will be given.
Each man in active service is riven
an accident insurance policy of not
more tnan b00. Five dollars a week
n case of injury. One hundred dol
lars funeral expenses.
If killed on duty, the widow or chil
dren dependent upon the firemen will
be given $1,000 as gratuity. This, with
$500 accident insurance, totals $1,500.
in case fireman dies of disease fol
lowing injury in service and accident
Insurance is not applicable, the de
partment grants his widow $1,500.
1 hese are a few of the advantages
of being a city fireman in a city where
efficiency and capability are demanded.
The Firemen's Relief association is
composed of members of the fire de
partment. It receives from, the state
superintendent of insurance a certain
amount every year. Each member of
the department is assessed for its sup
port. Under the new law it is allowed
to buy up city bonds at not less than
4 per cent interest. Under the old
law it was able only to let the money
lie in the bank at regular city 2 per
Ninety per cent of the total funds of
this relief association are allowed for
investment in city bonds.

Rockefeller and Gould Interests Get
Together on Missouri Pacific.
New York, April 21. The gap left in
the Missouri Pacific directorate by the
resignation of Kuhn. Loeb & Co.'s rep
resentatives, when George Gould forced
the election of E. F. Bush as president
of the road- is filled with the selection
of James Speyer, of the banking firm
of Speyer & Co., and H. I. Miller, re
ceiver of the Buffalo & Susquehanna
railway. Mr. Miller will serve in an
advisory capacity. They succeed Paul
Warburg and Cornelius Vanderbilt.
Because of the break with Kuhn,
Loeb & Co.. Wall street was at first
inclined to interpret the selection of Mr.
Speyer as a Missouri Pacific director to
mean that Speyer & Co. would become
the principal bankers for the road. Geo.
Gould explained, however, that it was
not the intention to concentrate in one
Mr. Gould also took occasion to deny
that Edgar L. Maston, a director, rep
resents the "Rockefeller interests," as
has been generally published here. Mr.
Marston. he said, represented simply
Blair & Co. The Rockefeller interests
and the Gould faction in the road are in
strict harmony, however, as was fur
ther indicated by an invitation to

souri Pacific directorate. Because of
other duties, notably as a director of
the Harriman lines, Mr. "Vanderiip
could not see his way to accept at pres
ent. After the meeting George J. Gould,
former president of the Missouri Pa
cific, made the following statement: '
"Mr. Speyer and Mr. Miller were
elected directors of the Missouri Pacific
in place of Paul Warburg and Cornel
ius Vanderbilt. I fe 1 that the board
has been materially strengthened and
that there is perfect harmony among
all concerned. I do not think there is
a discordant note anywhere. The elec
tion of Mr. Bush has been very highly
spoken of in the west.
"Mr. Bush has received many con
gratulatory telegrams from prominent
western shippers and citizens of . St.
Louis, and I have also received a num
ber today. Mr. Bush was elected a
director of the Iron Mountain, succeed
ing Mr. Warburg, resigned.
"I have noticed that Mr. Marston" has
been mentioned as the representative
of Blair & Co. on the Missouri Pacific
board. Blair & Co. have placed i-at
times over $100,000,000 of securities- on
"H. I. Miller, who was elected a direc
tor," will serve in an advisory capacity."
Mr. Gould said Frank Vanderiip,
president of the National City bank,
has been tendered a position on the
Missouri Pacific board, but that Mr.
Vanderiip did not see his way clear to
accept on account of his other interests.

TEARS OUtHIS EYE.
It Is Glass and Camorrist Hurls It to
Viterbo, April 21. Of all the methods
adopted by the Camorrist prisoners to
excite sympathy or incite a riot, none
surpassed in novelty and effectiveness
that of Gaetano Esposito who, at the
end of a mad harangue today, tore a
glass eye from his head and hurling it
at thei feet of the president, stamped
the court room floor, then fell in a
faint and President Bianchi suspended
According to the state, Esposito, who
is known as a usurper, ia a dangerous
malefactor and succeeded "Enricon"
Alfano as the head of the Camorra
when Alfano fled to the United States,
there to fall into the hands of Lieuten
ant Petrosino. He "is charged with
having' been one of those who met at
Bagnolia and condemned Gennaro Cuc
colo to death for treachery to his as
sociates in crime.
The prisoner attempted to prove an
alibi so far as the meeting at Bagnoll
was concerned. At that time he was
traveling, he said, between Milan and
Rome. He gave a detailed account of
his wanderings prior to the murder of
Cuccolo and his wife and gradually
wrought himself up to a fine frenzy. Ho
concluded in substance as follows:
"It is true that I concealed myself
at the time when I learned that I was
to be arrested. I was suffering as I am
even now, from heart disease. In my
boyhood, I lost one eye. I feared that
I would die in prison from the malady
which had already seized me or what
would be even worse that I would lose
my other eye."
Here the prisoner sobbed violently,
his face in his hands. Suddenly he
raised his head and. with a deft move
ment of the hand released the glass eye
and, throwing it on the floor before the
judge's bench, bared his face, disfig
ured with old cuts, to the horrified
Thus for a few seconds he posed arid
then with a choking cry dropped to the
floor in a faint.
As Esposito collapsed a tumult was
raised. From the steel cages the pris
oners shouted cries and cursed.
One of the jurymen; who is a physi
cian, went to the assistance of Esposito
and President Bianchi declared the sit

New York Stock Market.
Wall St., New York, April 21. STOCKS
A brisk movement was inaugurated
with the opening of the stock market to
day. Almost the entire list was de
pressed. Among the weakest issues were
the fertilizer shares, Virginia, Carolina
Chemical losing 1 and American Cotton
Oil a point. United States Steel opened
lower and Union Pacific and Missouri
Pacific declined .
Liberal offerings of the fertilizer group
defeated efforts to rally the standard
stocks after the opening display of heavi
ness. American Agricultural Chemical
declined 1; Virginia Carolina Chemical
1 and American Cotton Oil 1. Bear
operators sold these stocks congidently on
the belief that the disturbed trade condi
tions would compel a reduction of divi
dends. The decline during the week in
these stocks amounted to 2 in American
Agricultural Chemical and 6 in Ameri
can Cotton Oil and ? Verginia Carolina
Chemical. Pennsylvania was, bid up a
point at U o'clock and the general market
hardened slightly in sympathy.
Changes in prices during the morning
session were negligable except in a few
Issues. Sentiment was not clearly enough
defined to bring about a pronounced
movement in prices in either direction,
also the buying was considered better
than the selling in th early decline. Lon
don unloaded some 15,000 shares at the
opening,-chiefly Union Pacific, the bal
ance between United States Steel' and
Reading. Reports of suspension of work
on ther construction of a large Alabama
plant of the United States Steel corpora
tion was given as the reason for the
heaviness in that stock. Toward midday
the tone of the market became apprecia
bly better and prices of representative
stock recovered to yesterday's clo ing fig
ures. The fertilizer group however, con
tinued under pressure. Rock Island pre
ferred 1. "
Bonds were steady.
The stock market was Virtually ,at a
standstill during the noon hour. Allis
Chalmers preferred broke 3 points to 25.
Speculative interest waned steadily, the
possibility of some action on the trust
measures by the supreme court on Mon
day having a restrictive influence. Prices
scarclely moved the list hovering close to
yesterday's closing level.
