Mrs. Anna Catherine Otto, of Dav
enport, through her attorneys, Heinz
& Fisher, Hoersch, and J. L.
Haas, has filed suit in the circuit
court asking- the recovery and as
signment ty her of some $15,000 in
notes, mortgages and bank deposits,
which she alleges her daughter, Lau
raMrs. A. F. Schinkl of Koek Isl
and, had conveyed to herself through
undue influence June 13, 1902..
Mrs. Otto claims that her daughter
represented that the plaintiff in this
case was in danger of proseVution
which would involve the loss of her
property, and that the only way to
save herself was to have all her prop
erty and holdings made over to her
daughter. She did so, as she claims
she was weak and infirm at the time,
both mentally and physically.
The papers were made out and the
transfer took place, according to Mrs.
Otto's statement, with the agreement
that when the danger was over she
was to have her property back on
request and that in the meantime the
daughter was to support and provide
her with the necessities of life. She
claims she asked for a retransfer and
that it has not been granted and that
she has had no support wftaf ever, and
that further the daughter has had
portions of the property made out to
her own use. She asks that the deed
of assignment or transft-r be set
aside and delivered up to be cancelled
and that the order of the court be
fiven for the return of all the notes
and deposits with accrued interest.

ARGUED AT THE CAPITAL
Springfield, 111., April 2:5. Oral ar
gument was made yesterday in the su
preme court on the petition for man
damus which involves the validity of
the supreme judicial court apportion
ment passed April 3 hv the legisla
ture, changing the boundaries of the
Fourth district. The refusal of Sec
retary of Stale Hose to lile the nomi
nation papers of William L. Yaudc
venter, the democratic nominee in the
old fourth district, resulted in 'the
W. E. Williams, of PittshYld, and
Carl Epler, of (Juincy, appeared for
the . petitioner. Attorney Genera!
Hamlin and Clinton L. Conkliug. of
Springfield, represented the respond
ent. The petitioners based their chief
argument on the jniint that to com
ply with the constitution it is neces
sary to make a complete reappor
tionment of the entire state instead
of simply changing the boundaries of
The respondents argued that if the
rule contended for by the petitioners
was followed there could never be a
reapportionment, because the consti
tution provides that changes shall be
made immediately preceding" the elec
tion for judge. Five districts have an
election for nidge in 190(5, one in 190!$
and one district in 1909. It was ar
gued that as no session of the legis
lature immediately precedes the elec
tion of all the judges the constitution
cannot be followed, but it must be
given a construction that is practical.
