St. Louis, Fob. 5. PrcsldentFrancls
of the Louisiana Purchase exposition
has a oaso of "broad cast upon tho
water roturnlng after many days."
Ho is In recolpt of tho following letter
from a Chicago man:
"On tho night of October 7, 1801, I
boardod a train it Hannibal, Mo.,
with my brido of a fow hours, en route
to Kansas City. Every berth in tho
slcopor bad boon sold and nono had
beon rosorved for mo, through somo
blunder of tho ticket agent. Embar
rassed and distressed, I left tho young
lady and wandered into the smoking
compartment, whoro I found Colonol
John Grath in company with a gentle
man whom ho introduced as 'my frlond
Govornor Francis.' Upon learning
of my prodlcamont, you very gener
ously lnslstod on my accoptlng your
berth, happily solving for both brido
and groom a bowlldoring situation.
Until now tho opportunity to liquidate
this dobt of gratitudo has not present
ed itself, and I trust you will not think
tho payment is in bad coin. I want to
contributo in somo mcasuro to the sue
coss of tho St. Louis exposition. For
fourteen years my work has been along
electrical lines electric lighting and
tolophono-with a good sharo of busi

MAY BE LEASE CONVICTS
Captain Deniinlug's Application for
Writ ofliabeas Corpus (Jruuted.
Leavenworth, Kansas, Fob. 10
John H. Atwood of this city today re
ceived notico that tho application of
haboas corpus by Captain Peter C.
Demming, who applied on tho ground
of being illegally hold in tho federal
prison at Fort Loavenwortb, had been
granted. Tho decision affects about
2,000 military prisoners. Tho caso
was based on an old army law which
provided that no volunteer soldier
could bo tried by a court-martial
composed either wholly or partly of
regular army olllcors. Demming was
convicted of tho embezzlement of gov
ernment funds by a court-martial
hoaded by Colonel Rowlo at the Pre
sidio, California. All court-martials
since tho Spanish-American war pro
ceeded on the theory that tho old array
law did not apply any more.
Tho caso is one of tho most impor
tant in tho military annals of tho
country and was bitterly contested at
St. Louis by able military lawyers.
Tho writ for Demmlng's roloaso will
be issued this week. Tho decision
probably will result in tho release of
all military prisoners, formerly vol
unteer soldiers, who were convicted by
a regular army court martial. Dem
ming has served eighteen months of a
three year's sentence.

will bo operated next month a novel
dovico for putting thoKansas sunshine

such as has been used In oxporimonts
In Arizona and California.
Tho motor consists of a largo radi

foot at tho Inner, lined with mirrors
which focus on a boiler that occupies
tho position of a handlo to tho wide

Tho operation of tho dovico Is sim

after sunriso by tho pushing of a
lover. Indicators show when tho true
focus Is obtained and In an hour 150
pounds of steam is generated. Tho
englno is then started by turning tho

tho reflector follow tho sun all day,
the oiling is automatic, tho boiler is
