Investigation of the election frauds.
Judge WolTord stated to a Journal re
porter that ho did not discharge the grand
Jury because ho feared It would not do Its
duty In election cases, tint simply for the
reaion given by him. There Is a widespread
belief, lion ever, that some of the members
of the discharged grand Jury wrro alto

which nro to be Investigated, and that this
fact had a good deal to do with the action
of Judge Woftord. The members of the

ftirit Again HU.tppiiliilcil.
Tho county court, In session nt Inde
pendence, yesterday srnppleil With tho
cillcstlon of revising- the Jury Hats of
Jackson cotlnty, It Is not the Intention
of the court to attempt to effect u change
lit the system established by statutory
law, but to pttiKO tin' jury lists from
which names are Bclecteil for the Jury
The Iniquities which have crept Into
the present system In the selection of
Jurors have been ho flagrant In the past
that tho court proiwses to Institute a re
form which will, In a tnrnstiro, culminate
III a better class of Jurors for tho civil
and criminal courts ot the county. The
court, with the advice of the county
counselor, proposes to secure a list of
all tho eligible Jurors In the county.
This is to be done by sclectltiK one or
more well known citizens In each twon
slilp anil ward to canvass their respec
tive districts for eligible men who have
all the necessary tiualllicatlotis to net as
Jurors. This ll.n, after being1 compiled,
will bo used by the court for refer
ence In making: up Jury lists. This plan
will practically do it way with it jury
commissioner and will take nway the
iwwer of one man to select Juries for the
courts of the county. Practically It will
bo a selection of Jury men by some of tho
best citizens In the county. The plan,
If carried Into effect, will dispose of a
large number of dead men who are at
present on the jury llstw or of men who
have not resided In the county for yearn.
It will also put a quietus upon the
making up of Jury lists from city di
rectories. The appointment of men to compile the
lists the court considered to be one of
Its gravest duties. It will be u simple
matter to secure names, suggested n
member of tho county court yesterday.
"Yes," replied Judge Stone, "down In
the Second ward, for Instnnce. I am In
formed that tho county clerk Is now re
vising the Jury lists with the aid of ti
city directory." The clerk, however, In
formed tho court Hint this was a mis
take. The Jury lists were only being
compared with the city directory with
a view of making the list more correct
and avoiding the summoning of men
who were not residents of the city or
The matter was referred to the county
counselor before taking action, for the
court does not caro to conflict with the
statutory laws governing tho making
up of jury Hats. Heretofore cases have
been thrown out of court nnd the wheels
of Justice stopped by reason of irregu
larities In the selection of juries and this
Is to be avoided In the future.
The court took up the matter of road
Inspectors yesterday, and, as a. result,
the heads of several men were lopped off.
A delegation of citizens from Hickman
Mills appeared before the court and
nsked for the removal of Joshua Cates
as road Inspector on the Hickman Mills
road. Cates was removed on nccotint of
alleged Incompetency, nntl Grant Day
was appointed in his stead. William
Green was also removed as Inspector of
the coal mine road. It was alleged that
he was mixed up in an election scrape
In the Seven Oaks precinct. ltobert
Bryan was apiiolnted in Ills stead. The
Inspectors on tho Indlnn Creek road
were also removed, for the reason that
the court did not consider that their re
tention was benellcial to the public.
Only grading was being done on the
road, and to watch scrapers wheel dirt
was an unnecessary expense. In the
Hickman Mills and coal mine roads
macadam Is being laid, and the court
thought that tho presence of an in
'speetor was necessary.
Coroner Bedford appeared before the
county court again with u request that
Dr. Wheeler be appointed a deputy at
Kansas City. The court did not con
sider It necessary and the coroner went
To-day the county court will make a
visit to the district where several pro
tests have been tiled against saloons.
The court proposes to Inquire Into tho
state of affairs and will visit each saloon
in the district. The principal district to
bo visited Is In the neighborhood of the
railway yards on the "West side, against
which the Santa Fe and Fort Scott rail
ways have entered a protest. The court
appointed II. M. Meriwether and J. G.
Paxton attorneys for the county col
lector, to servo during the unexpired
term of Collector Hayes.

A special election will be held 111 West
port next Saturday on the proposition
to extend the city limits from Thirty-first

Tho proposed extension Is not ngreenble
to all the property owners In tho territory
described, and a meeting has been called
to protest against It. The meeting will bo
held Thursday night at S o'clock In a hall
at Thirty-first and Holmes streets.
Iln.ml "f Public Works.
Tho board of public works spent several
hours yesterday morning listening to Mr.
Paul L. Crowe, formerly chief engineer of
the Kansas City Cable road, who Is the In
ventor of an automatic stoker which ho Is
anxious to havo tho city test. He offers to
put the stoker on tho boiler in tho city
hall, which Is nui provided with a stoker.
He agrees to put tho device on tho boiler
freo of charge, and It not satisfactory to
tho city, will remove It at ills own expense.
If satisfactory, ho will sell It for J.V.V). A

Monday night, nnd until .lah:ht yesterday
morning, to see that he did no harm to
himself, for a few days ago Dr Lengel be
came uumlstnkably Insane. On Wednesday
night Dr. Lengel ejected Ids housekeeper,
and yesterday morning she reported the
matter to the police, and asked piole.tion
while she removed her effects to tho heme
of a neighbor at lllli Mttlce street. Cap
tain Phillips and Oilleer lllui kbergcr. of the
Grand avenue police station, were detailed
by Chief Kpeers to accompany the woman.
The policemen found Dr. Leng, I in his
back yard, and engaged hlm In onvcrsu
tlou regarding Ids horse, will' h twicer
lllockberger pretended to wont to bu.
When Dr. Lengel started toward tin house
Captain Phillips entered llrt, and kept
himself between the doctor and a warlike
nrray of weapons which were (.'-altered
about the house. Thete was a big club on
the doctor's desk, a dagger on his bureau,
a revolver on a center stand, and u hut 'her
knife nud brass knuckles In other places.
The policemen could have ainslcl Lena. I
nt that time, but had no ordeis to so.
.Subsequently Humane oilleer Mherlocl. was
sent to the house to take Lengel In charge,
but found the house loclud and the doors
Lengel was inside with hl numerous
weapons, Chief Hpcers bad glcu In-trin -tlons
not to break In a door except in a.-e
of extreme emergency, and the it untune
ullbvr did not make the arrest.
Wllllim Lengel, son of I if. l.etigel, who
lhes with his family at No. ll.'ooak street,
pleaded with the police yesterday to take
Ills lather Into custody, as he feared lie
would either Injure himself or someone
else. The police refencd Hlm to Hie health
department, n"d then to the county court.
Mr. Lengel failed to Und the city phydclnti,
and the county court was In session at In
dependence. Lengel said that, he llrst be-i-nnio
aware of his father's Insanity a few
day's ago, when Lengi l's "111111 was ill.
Dr. Lengel visited hlm, made a tew pas.s
with his hands over the child, Jctii.d It
out of Its cradle by the arm and told it to
Shortly after. Dr. Lengel called on his son
and asked hlm If ho had noticed that the
sun rose In the south Instead of the ea-t
that morning. He said he could make the
sun shine or bo dark at will, and he said
that the manner of the sun's rising show
ed that the world would come to an end in
a few days. "Pill going then." remark, d
Dr. Lengel, "and you will have to go will)
During the last two days Dr. Lengel s
conduct has become violent and he Is un
doubtedly dangerous. Yesterday Mrs.
Lengel, his daughter-in-law. called at bis
house and tried to persuade hlm to take
some food she had prepared for hlm. He
would not admit her to the house, nor
wo lid he take the food. He did not ap
pear to know her, and ordered her away
bv shouting through the window. Dr. Len
gel's son called shortly after, but the fnth
cr did not appear to know film, and called
through the window for hlm to leave the
vnr.I or something would happen. II is
nld that the allllcted man has refused to
eat food for two days.
Dr. Lengel's mania seems to be that his
house is crowded with evil spirits, an I he
has been burning frequent Hirelings oi ..
oil ami alcohol with the belief that h .n
thus exorcise the house of the evil oiv
At times during the past few days be r m
about thu house with his dagger, making
vicious thrusts, and shouting Just as if he
were making a vigorous onslaught on the
Dr. Lengel was at one time editor of the
old Dally German Herald, published s.,i.il
years ago. He has been a reside nt of Kan
sas City about sixteen years.
All the lower llonr of Dr. Lengel's lioiu. .
at No. 1114 lb Gee street, was lighted up .i.
late as 10:30 o'clock last night, but nothliu:
could be seen of him through tint half
open blinds of the parlor windows.
Through tho windows nn the south side of
the building he could be seen to occasion
ally Hit about through the rooms, and i
llarlng up of light al one time reveal, d
him ill tho net of burning some coal oil or
other Inflammable liquid in a bowl.
Almost adjoining Dr. Lengel's house on
the south Is the home of a Mr. Lewis and
family, and they were up nnd awake at a
late hour last'ulght. .Mr. Lewis was very
indignant because the police had not taken
thn insane man into custody, lie said that
not only Lengel's sons but the fright ened
neighbors of the Insane man had time and
again appealed to the police dining the
dnv to place Lengel tirder arrest. "The
man may kill himself or some one else', or
burn down his house and plat e In Jeopardy
other properly," said .Mr. Lewis, "and If
sin h Irausplies It will plainly be the fault
of the authorities."
Humane Agent Klierlock, who live- at the
southwest corner of Fourteenth and Mefiee
streets, In the same block with Dr. Lengel,
could not be found at bis home Inst night.
Members of his family said It was not
likely that ho would attempt to arrest
Lengel dining the night. He hud taken no
action In that direction beemise lie lmd
falle-d to see Dr. Lengel's son and consult
him in legurd to the matter. It was said
that William Lengel had b.i nine III with
worry over the matter and that he would
not see the Humane ofllecr when be culled
last night. No ono could blame the u
innno oilleer very much for not attempting
to arrest Lengel single handed. People In
tho vicinity were very Indignant hist night,
however, because the police had tint taken
him In custody. In view of the fn-t of the
nuui'irous complaints made und the dan
gerous Condition of the man.
Mis. Victoria Wagner, Dr. Lengel's for
mer housekeeper, was seen last night, and
sho said that Dr. Lengel had attempted
to strangle her that morning when she
went after her elfects. Her story was cor
roborated by Mrs. Lewis, who said that
Mr. Lewis and suino one else Interfered
when tho assault was made. The assault
occurred In Lengel's yard.
