It took two hours' hard work to tlnlsh
the novel contest, plaer No 1 making

fairly good position for nddltlonnl play,
but with one tnnn less than his oppo

majority with the position was enough
to insure defeat.
The player at tnble Xo 1 was G. II.
Hoberts. Sir. Iloberts chos tho souter
game and plajed It with great skill. He
handled his men with the greatest care,
and utter twentj-flvo moves secured the
odd man on Sir. Heed Near the end of
this game, which was the last decided,
Mr Heed remarked that It was a. close
thing "f have mv men this way" Then
he named the spots where he thought
they ought to be He made one inl
take. but placed nil of Mr Hoberts" men
correctly Then he remarked thnt he
would play the game over and announce
his next move He did so, nftcr com
plaining that somebodj was Interfering
He finally said "He has the odd man
and I will give It up "

game was the most Interesting of the

IT IS TnoCGlIT TIIE PROCEEDINGS
WILL HE CLOfeFD Hr WEDNESDAY.
Th General Opinion Around Topekn Is
That 3Ir. Chase's Metaphorical Scalp
Ii Already In tho Hands of
Topeka, Kas, April 20. (Special )
After hearing testimony for about five
hours to-day, the Warden Chase Inves
tigation committee adjourned until 11
o'clock Monday morning.
During- the morning- session Major
Shrie-ve, who was deputy state auditor
tinder the Populist ministration, tes
tified that the accounts of Warden
Chase as filed In the auditor's olllce
were always In good shape.
Fred Close, Governor Towelling's
private secretary, testified with the pur
pose of Impeaching- the testimony of
Bunn, the ex-mlnlng superintendent, as
to the operations of the state mine at
Several farmers from the clnlty of
Merldan, Jefferson county, were Intro
duced to prove the bad reputation for
truth and veracity of the -witness James
Itaney, who swore that Lou Williams'
reputation was bad at Merldan, and
that he had once seen her In an assig
nation house in Kansas City. These
witnesses also testified that they had
never heard Miss Williams," reputation
called In question while she was a resi
dent of Merldan, some twelve years ago.
At the afternoon session Mrs. Will
lams, of Merldan, mother of Miss Lou,
was called to the stand She testified
that her daughter had lived away from
home for the past thirteen jears,
though she had alvvajs kept track of
her whereabouts. She had never heard
nnythlng bad about ltei daughter and
did not believe she had become Im
moral She had been married and di
vorced. At present the girl wns work
ing In n private family at C4I Minne
sota avenue, Kansas City.
Mrs. Willis, wife of a Union Pacific
lineman, who lives nt Kansas City,
Kas, testified that Miss Williams had
come to her house after leaving tho
penitentiary nnd remained for two
months, going from therp to Sedallt to
work. She had seen nothing suspicious
In the glil's conduct. It was during
this period of two months that Raney
swore he saw her go Into nn assignation
house across the river. Tills closed the
taking of testimony for the day.
It Is commonly believed about Topeltj.
that the warden's scalp Is hanging nt
the belt of tho prosecution. Indeed, his
own attorneys appear to confess that
much, for they Jiavo been telling what
Warden Chase Intends to do when Gov
ernor Morrill shall have appointed his
successor. It Is tho warden's Intention
to refuso to turn over to his successor,
they say, nnd force him to go Into court
to secure Ills rights. Tills talk Is not
disturbing tho authorities nt the state
house. Tliev say that they are not an
ticipating the report of the committee
ns to tho guilt or Innocence of Chase.
To nn outsider, however, It would np
pear ns though Chase was trjlng to run
i bluff In his tall: about refusing to
turn over. As lie lias been susponili d
from Ills position nnd another man Is In
possisslon, It Is not entirely clear as to
what he -will have to turn If the sus
pension should bo made poimanent.
It Is thought that the Investigation
will bo concluded by Wednesday night.
Then tho committee will wait until Ihe
Hti rmgraphi r can transcribe his notes
b foro making n, report to the governor,
Tho stenographer who took tho Hist
linlf of tho Investigation has nearly
Uiinpletcrt his work, hut It will occupy
the Hirnntl mnn two weeks or more to
finish his part.
