NO NEWS FROM WALLER.
Nothlnc Itecelrcd nt the htatn Ilepirtmcnt
lu Itcsurd to Urn ex-Coimtll.
Washlnfrlon, March 23. Hon. John M.
Langston.nho for some years past has been
counsel for cc-Consul John I.. Waller, of
Kansas, was at the state department to
day to ascertain It any news had been re
ceived oniclally of the reported sentence
of his client to tenty j ears' lmpilsonment
in Madagascar. Mr. rirt.rtitnM .iii,t,a i u
about time cable advices were recclved.but
In this he was dlsapiwlnted, for up to noon
nothing had come to the department. Cer
tain documents and letters from Mr. AV.il
lor bearing on the concession made to him
by the Hovii government and when neces
fcary will figure in the matter If It Is taken
up by the state department by Mr. ianifs-J.O"-
The refusal of Mr. Waller to file a
record of tho concession In the olllce of the
I rench recent 'n Madagascar, which, no
tloubt, has been a source of Irritation to
the authorities of that country and prob
ably Inspired the prosecution against him,
are set forth In the documents.
As the result of his visit to the state de
partment Mr. Langston expresses the con
viction the offlclatu will act promptly In
Investigating the matter of Mr. Wallers
arrest and Imprisonment, and that they
riiJLtiJ,1 "ieiVa retus, t( submit to the
disposition of his case by a court martini,
and insist-upon a civ II trial, as they did ill

E, Whyte Grocery, Fruit & Wins Co,
Cnrrolllon, Mo.. March M (Special.) The
Interest In the Talor trial was unabalcd
when court opened this morning, the room
being crowded vvllli nnxlous spectators.
Tho two defendants In tho case still pos
sessed tint Indifferent bearing which Ins
oharactcrbed them since the bnglnnlng of
the trial. The stato began tho proceedings
by tho Introduction of M. 8. llurdett, of
llrownlng, a blacksmith, who said two
diys before the murder. Hill Taj lor went
to ins shop anil llurdett said to him that
Ous Meoks was back.
"Ves, and I know what he is back for,
nmt ho will get what ho came inck for,
too," said Taj lor. llurdett said Tavlor
spoko In an angry tone and his ejes
"What do j oil mean when jou say Ills
eyes twinkled?" asked Lawjer Hale.
"Why, jou know, 1)111 Taylor's ejes do
look pretty sharp when he Is mad," said
D. C. Tierce swore that soon before the
Meeks murder George Taylor told him, In
talking over tho cattle case In which Meeks
was expected to testlfv against them:
"We'll get tho fellow out of tho way.
He'll never testify against us."
A. It. Dllllnger testified that ho had a
conversation with mil Taylor. In which he
said that he would sco that Gus Meeks
would bo killed before ho would allow him
Mrs. John Carter was then put on tho
s'tand. It was to her liouse that Nellie
Meeks went when she crawled out of the
stravvstack the morning after tho tragedy.
She Is W j ears old, and lives with her
son 1'rank, whose farm adjoins George
Tajlor's. nnd whose nouso Is 1 yards
..um mo straw stack, where the dead
bodies of the Meeks family were found. On
tho morning of May H she arose at 4
o'clock and prepared breakfast for her son,
who then wont to a distant field to finish
planting some corn, "llctween 5 and fi
o'clock," she went on, "I heard a peculiar
cry outside the house. I listened and when
It was repeated I recognized It as the wall
of n, child. I opened the kitchen door and
saw a llttlo girl walking towards me. I
said, Jiello, honej; where do ou come
from?' She said: 'I slept In tho hay
stack.' 'Where at?' I asked. 'Itlght out
jonder.' and the child pointed In tho direc
tion of the stack over In the middle of
George Tajlor's plowed field."
Mrs. Carter said tho child was crj-lnr
and held one hand to tho sldo of her face
with a hood In the other. 'I he child con
tinued sobbing and siitl; "Mv little sl,n.r
is out In tho straw stack. Please conio out
and helii me get her out." Tho child's hair
was thick with clotted blood, In which
straw- was sticking. There was blood on
her face and clothes, too. "Oh, it was hor
rilile," she went on, and the tears stn ameti
do'.m her che.k. "The child said her name
was ettIo Meeks. and her rnti. ...,.1
mother and little Hattle and Mamie, the
lubj'. were out In the stack with bloou all
Mrs Cirtcr sent her son, Jimmle Carter
n j ens old, to see If then- were any bodies
In tho stiaw, and she stood at the door and
watched them. She saw Gooi-ey. T.nin. i.-
jowlng near tho stack, and Jlimnlo went to
him nnd Taj lor stopped tho hirrow a mo
mtnt Then ho drove the horses nt a trot
to liN birn and took the boj with lilm In
a few moments the boy went back and
Mrs. Cartel sent III in and VhIM., . . - .
the stiaw stack, and she went to tho fence
and watched them, bhe saw Xettle dig In
tho stiaw. nnd then little Xettle throw up
her cl isped hands nnd cried: "Oh, mam
ma and pipa, oh, minima and papi!" '
The scene In tho touit room at this point
was veiy pathetic, The silence was In-
icuo.,, uniKtMi oniy iiy tne sobbing of the
witness and the suppressed breathing of
tho vast audience. Strong men were teen
to wipe the moisture from their nvrs no ii,n
details of the atrocious crime weia made
known, niiilng this pathetic plctuio as
presented by the witness, the Tajlors sat
unmoved mid with stolid Indlfferenco de
pleted upon their faces.
Mrs. Carter was asked if she saw In the
court room tho child who came to her
iiousu on tne morning the bodies were
found, unit she pointed to Xettle and called
tho child to her, Sho went to tho woman's
chair and .Mrs. Carter removed tho child's
mm u dimmer cap nnd looked at the livid
scar In tho crown of her head. "Vps " xhn
said, "this Is the bame little girl who came
to my house that morning."
There was the utmost Interest manifest
ed in the nppe.tiance of the little girl In the
court room und It was soino time before
quiet was restored.
The next witness was Mrs. Carter's son
Jimmle, who said that when ho started for
tho strawstack ho found George Taj lor
harrowing, und told him a little girl had
found tome dead people in tho straw stack,
Ho asked Taj lor to go ami help him find
them, but George took him to the barn and

Tho Journal has a list of tventvthro

it, for some time. Last night, to make as
surance doubly sure, a party of gentlemen
went from the Journal olllce and visited
numerous places where they miw the games

were given cards and asked to come again.
There seemed to be no secrecy about the

The major took oeeislon to attack an
