The suit of Sirs. Maud T,ord Drake
against County Marshal Henry Stowart
for damages camo to nn abrupt termina
tion In tho federal cotirl yesterday after
noon. At tho conclusion of the ovldenco
for tho plaintiff tho attorneys for Mr.
Stewart demurred to tho evidence. The
demurrer was sustained by tho court
and tho Jury Instructed to find for tho
defendant without leaving tho box. This
was done and tho caso closed so far as
Judge Priest's court Is concerned.
Tho victory was no particular sur
prise to the plaintiff, as Just such an
action was expected In view of tho rul
ings of tho court inado Monday nnd
Tuesday, which Indicated that tho
court's construction of tho liability law
was such ns would certainly shut Mrs.
Drake out of any damages In the case.
The case will go nt onco on appeal to
tho United States court of appeals. Tho
attorneys for Sirs. Drake nro Just as con
fident as over and feel perfectly certain
they will have tho findings of the lower
court upset and Iho case remanded for
Tho exposition of the law as made by
Judge 1'rlcst was a reversal of Judge
Philips In the federal court, Judge QUI
In tho court of nppeals and Judge Henry
In tho circuit court, and caused no end
of comment In legal circles yesterday.
Tho opinion was freely expressed by
many attorneys that the superior courts
would certainly upset his construction
of the law regarding tho liability of a
principal for tho acts of his authorized
According to the law as expounded by
Judge Prle3t In this caso tho deputy
marshals who received the prisoners nt
tho county Jail exercised authority only
as guards for tho constable. Tho pris
oners were received as others were, they
was registered and locked up as others
wero and the regular fees collected by
tho county marshal Just as In other
cases, but the action was all done as
guards for tho constable. Tho possession
and custody of a prisoner, he held,
could not pass from the olllccr malting
tho arrest until tho original process In
tho case had been Carried to completion
and tho regular mittimus Issued.
He also held In regard to tne namniy
of officers for the action of deputies that
tho doing of nn Illegal act by a deputy
olllcor was done as a person, not ns an
officer nor under the color of office, for
the law gave him no authority to do an
unlawful act. This ruling, It Is claimed,
has the effect of rellevlrs bonded ofll
cers of ntl liability for illegal acts done
by their deputies and makes the only
recourse for the Injured party an action
against or prosecution of tho deputy as
an Individual. It is further claimed
that It makes tho liberty of nn individ
ual under arrest subject entirely to tho
whim of tho deputy, without attaching
any liability whatever to the principal
officer for any wrong or illegal net that
may bo done. Under tho decision and
ruling of the court a citizen might be
confined In Jail for any length of time
by simply a little collusion between a
deputy and a magistrate, by which tho
magistrate would remain away from his
oflico but in his Jurisdiction, so that he
could not be found to approve a bond.
A point exactly similar was recently
decided by Judge Henry In the circuit
court Just tho reverse of tho ruling of
Judge Priest. In that case Judge Henry
held that the bond was given for the
protection of parties Injured by Illegal
nets. Judge GUI, in tho court of ap
peals, also decided a similar point Just
opposite to tho ruling of Judge Priest.
In conversation yesterday with some
friends In tho court room Mrs. Drake
said she was a relative of "Stonewall"
Jackson, This was nn announcement
that created some Interest not hereto
fore felt in tho case. There are many
warm admirers of "Stonewall" Jackson
among the ex-Confederates of the city,
and there are strong Indications that
they will render Mrs. Drake what as
sistance they can in tho prosecution of
WEAT.TIIY ltANCHJIAN SUED.
Charged 'With liming Asuaultod One of
In tho federal court yesterday afternoon
tho case of Mrs. Julia Knoll against Colonel
George Do Camp for $10,000 damages was
taken up for trial. Tho plaintiff lives in
this city, but tho defendant Is a resident of
Emporia, Kas., where he has lived for a
score of years and Is well known. He la
tho owner of a ranch of 7,000 acres near tho
city and Is reputed to bo worth at least
SKO.OOO. He la 72 years of age, very corpu
lent, and has not been In good health for
several years. He has a family of ten chll
Uren nnd a number of grandchildren.
Tho complainant, with her husband, was
employed on the farm of Colonel Do Camp,
ber husband as a farm laborer and she as
tho housekeeper. She alleges that on the
evening of Sunday. May 27, Ifcfll, while
they ware In the house on the farm, sho
was attacked by her employer and violent
ly assaulted and abused. She asks for
damages for J1U.O0O. On the stand yester
day ehe told her story with great elteot
and stood a very critical cross-examination
better than most witnesses do. Sho Is
about 30 years of age, was born In Austria
and can talk English but brokenly.
During the opening of tho caso a rather
unusual circumstance took place In tho
court room. Attorney Knox, who appeared
tor the plaintiff, had made the opening
"statement, and Just as the witness was be
ing examined Attorney Bridges came In and
'announced to the court that ho was also
counsel In tho caso and protested against
the manner In which It was being conducted
by Attorney Knox. Several times he Inter
tered with the attorney, and was told then
"by the court to make no further Interfer
ence. At this Juncture he, with a most
resneetful salutation to the court, beer an to
tell tho court wherein wero tho weaknesses
tot Attorney Knox In the case, and, refusing
to keep quiet, he was turned over to the
tialllff and escorted out of tho court room.
Yesterday Colonel De Camp stated to a
Teiporter that the charges made In the caso
against htm were utterly groundless.
Always Out ot.Itepnlr,
The sale of a bicycle to John Burgln,
a lawyer In the Sheldley building, did not
Srove profitable to the Kingman Bicycle
ompany, who made the sale. The wheel
was of a standard maka and was warrant
ed for a year ueal nst all defects that
might appear, and all damages reasonably
sustained were to bo repaired without cost
to tliu .purchaser for one year after the
purchase, liurgln proved to be a hoodoo
to that btcyclo and It was In the shop
half the time and finally the company got
tjred of seeing that wheel bobbing up like
Jlanquo's ghost and disowned all responsi
bility for Its chronic state of unrepair,
Burgln Insisted on his contract und yes
terday In a suit In Judge Dobson's di
vision of the circuit court recovered ISO
damages against the company for falling
In the performance of its contract.
IJtlgatlon Over J teal i:ttte.
A new phase of the litigation over the
business property at the southwest corner
of Third and Main was sprung yesterday
In a suit tiled la the circuit court to en
join the trustee, who sold the property
at trustee's sale, from making a deed to
Daniel C. List, the purchaser.
The action Is brought by C, F. Ilutch
ings, who claims an Interest In the realty.
The property was sold to satisfy two notes
given by Thomas and Clara King, and the
law allowing the possessor of the realty
to give security until the case should be
heard on Its merits applies only when the
holder or the leln against the property
purchases It. Hutchlngs claims that List
represents the creditors and that to deed
to him when security Is offered Is a viola
tion of the duty of the trustee, hence the
suit In Injunction.

J. SSumalt, judges; Arthur Zurn and M.
Second district L. D. Mlddnugh and T.

Owing to the failure of the Democratlo
city committees to get together tho tlmo
has expired In which a straight Demo
cratlo candidate could bo put in tho field
In tho Seventh ward. During the last
municipal campaign tho city Democracy
split Into two factions, the Johnson and
the Cooper. Each selected a city com
mittee and thoso committees are still In
existence. Bernard Corrlgan Is tho chair
man of the Cooper committee and Con
Murphy Is the chairman of the Johnson
committee. In order to comply with the
law under which tho primaries will bo
held Itceordcr Arnold should have been
notified by tho managing committee or
committees of tho Democratlo party of
Kansas City not later than May 2 of tho
Intention of tho Democrats of the Seventh
ward to place a candidate for the lower
house of the council In the field. Recorder
Arnold sent word to members of the two
committees on a number of occasions that
If they wanted a candidate In tho Seventh
ward they must notify him In writing
to that elfect on or before May 2. He
received no such notification from cither
committee. Consequently the Democracy
of tho Seventh ward. If It wants to havo
a candidate, must get up a petition signed
by not less than fifty citizens of tho ward
and file It with Recorder Arnold. As the
petition cannot be filed within twenty
days of the eleotlon, but two days remain
In which to fllo It.

Ml, Letter Itelntlro to n Ransom Was
Simply n Plan to ltnl.o n Little
Cnah Caught nt the
Eddlo Pciry, tho lS-year-old boy who
disappeared from Lawrence on Monday,
nnd wrote homo that ho was being hold
for ransom, wns located In this city yes
terday morning nnd tnken home nt 2
o'clock, the police being utterly In tho
dark ns to whether he was In the city
or out of It during the entire tlmo. Tho
boy was found by his uncle, William
Addis, of Emporia, and John Mush, of
Bush Bros., real estate agents In the
New York Llfo building.
Tho story the boy told was n false one
from beginning to end. Ho went to
school In the morning, nnd left Law
rence on tho afternoon of tho samo day.
Before ho left ho bought soma car
tridges for a revolver ho owned, that be
ing tho Inst seen of him In Lawrence.
On Tuesday his parents, who hud be
como badly frightened, received word
from him thnt he hnd been kidnaped
nnd drugged by two men, nnd was being
held In Kansas City for J200 ransom.
This frightened his parents still more,
nnd dispatches wero sent to this city
nnd tho pollco notified of tho supposed
Tho letter tho boy wrote was on two
sheets of a. blnnk book nnd was qulto
an Interesting composition. Ho said that
whllo on his way to tho cunning factory
In Lawrence ho was seized by two men,
tho one CO years of ago nnd tho other
25, and brought to this city. According
to his story ho was drugged on tho train
and did not come to consciousness until
ho reached this city with his captors.
Ho did state where ho was In durance,
but laid great stress on tho fact that
the $200 must be forthcoming soon.or his
captors would take him further South,
and ho would never bo heard from
again. Ho asked that a letter addressed
to him containing a postal order to tho
amount of $200 bo sent to the general
delivery department of tho Kansas City
postofllco, In order that thoso who were
holding him might get their money and
let him go.
Tho matter was placed In tho hands
of his uncle, William Addis, of Emporia,
who camo to Kansas City on Tuesday
and looked up his friend John Bush. Tho
two suspected that the boy was not tell
ing tho exact truth, and a letter, sup
posedly the one containing the money
order, was left at tho postolllco by them.
Assistant Postmaster Soldlltz was told
of this, and so wore all tho general de
livery otllclals. Mr. Bush, who Is a
friend of Mr. Stewart, of the postotllcc,
told him to look out for anyone calling
for a. letter addressed to Eddlo Perry.
Meantime a friend of Eddie's, who Is in
the employ of tho Chicago & Alton road,
looked up Mr. Addis and told him that
he hnd seen the boy on tho streets here
on Tuesday evening and had spoken to
htm. This clinched tho matter, and
Messrs. Addis nnd Bush kept close
watch on tho postolllce. Tho boy
promptly fell Into the trap. Yesterday
n.ornlng ho confidently presented him
self for tho letter he thought would be
there. No sooner hnd ho given his nnmo
than the postolllce officials held him and
Mr. Addis wns notified. He camo at
onco and the truant was quickly cor
rnlled so to speak. He was afterwards
taken to Bush Bros.' office for Mr.
Bush's benefit. He would say but little
nnd seemed quite chopfallen. He Is a
bright looking fellow, and a boy of
more than the usual Intelligence. Ills
uncle took him homo on tho 2 o'clock

One portion of the water works deal was

payment of hydrant rentals. The warrant
was properly countersigned by Comptroller
Shannon and delivered to L. C. Krauthoff,
as attorney for the Central Trust Com
pany, of New York, asslgneo of tho Na
tional Water Works Company. Mr, Kraut
holt presented tho warrant to City Treas
urer Green and received a check for the
amount. This settles tho judgment of the
federal circuit court so far as the pay
ments found immediately due are con
cerned, It Is probable no more money
will ba paid until tho completion of the
bond Issue and the taking iossesslon of
the plant by the city. The special election
June 0 is a formality, but a necessary one.
