The grand jury which will probe the Gilman murder mystery assembles Monday morning In connection -with the opening of the January term of common pleas court. The Gilman case Is near the end of the list of matters assigned for the Investigation of the Jury, and will probably be one of the last features of the session. Many witnesses will bo called by Prosecutor Nevln and his assistants, and every phase of the mystery will be probed. According to reports it Is entirely probable that the confession of Dave Curtis, the half-wit, will - be among the matters Investigated in connection with the case, although he was dismissed in the magistrate's court. Detective "William S. Heitzmann, the Cincinnati sleuth, who came here and interested himself in the Gilman murder case, is back In the city agahii Ho says he brought with him the copy Df the book Dona Gilman was reading on the street car when going home. This he declares was found in the water spout on the roof of the Gilman home. It will be turned over to the prosecutor, he says, for consideration Df the grand jury, when it takes up the case of the Gilmans bound over by Squire Wagner.

The Impeach ment committee recently appointed by Mayor Hamilton to investigate the charges preferred against City Clerk K. G. Elliott, will be allied together early next week, stated one of the members today, and it seems likely that the clerk will be given a thorough investigation and hauling over the coals that may result in the removal from office. Habitual drunkenness and negligence of duties are charged against him. Further Charges. The charges were brought mor.; for cibly to the attention of the commit tee last night, when complaint was made by Mrs. David Crosble, wife of a restaurant man, that Elliott had insulted her on the street. He was intoxicated at the time, it is alleged, and asked her as she .passed him, if she had company. Mrs. CrosbJe's husband met Elliott a little later and started in to give him a thrashing when Deputy Sheriff Charles Pierce arrived on the scene and prevented the fight. Elliott denies ' that he is the man who addressed Mrs. Cros bie. AGENT AT LAPEL INJURED Tnrown From Moving Train He Was Trying to Board and May Die Prominent Odd Fellow. Lapel,, Ind., Jan. 6. (Spl.)

MUCH MARRIED MATTIE LAST HUSBAND OBJECTS Blackford County Man Asks for Di vorce, Alleging That His Wife Has a Prior Attachment Living. Ifarttom vJty, Jan. 6. Suit to an nul an alleged marriage was filed in the Circuit court today.. The plaintiff i3 George W. Emory, a well-known farmer, who charges that Mattie Em ory, to whom he was married Sept. IS, 1906, already has a husband, who is still living and from whom she has never been divorced. Emory claims that on Jan. 2. he loarned for the first time that his pretended wife was the legal wife of Sjimuel Stewart, an inmate of the Marion Soldiers home. As soon as he learned the facts Mr.. Emory states in his complaint that he separated from the plaintiff and has not lived with her since the dis covery of the fraud. According to the complaint Mrs. Emory, who was formerly Mrs. Mattie Stewart, has two husbands, both of whom are living. This constitutes the crime of bigamy and she may be compelled to answer to this charge in the Circuit court as well as- to the divorce suit. BIG OUTLAY FOR PLAYERS HERRMANN SPENDS MONEY ishrdlodartnar farthaf rfypywff Cincinnati Magnate Is Doing Every thing Possible to Make Winners Out of the Reds This Coming Sea son. Publishers' Press.J Cincinnati, Jan. 6. Does it cost much to buy recruits for a team? Ask President Herrmann of the Reds for an affirmative answer. He will tell you that up to Jan. 1, 1907, the Cincinnati club will have Invested the sum of $23,962 in players during the twelve-month preceding, and the -talent for 1907 will cost even more, as second payment must be made on some of the new men if they are re tained by the local club. "Salaries, railroad fares and hotel bills are not the only expenses that a baseball club has during a season," said President Herrmann. "The pur chase of new men, is a much greater item than is generally credited. Our books show that from Jan. 1, 1906 up to the present time' we have expended the enormous sum of $25,962 for play ers. Of course, we offset this partial ly by the sums of money we received from the sale of Seymour, Hinchman Carr, Barry and a few other players early In the season, and of the bunch we disposed of at the recent league meeting. At the same time our ex penditures are far in excess of our receipts in the matter of transastions for players. Ten, too, there are sev' eral players on our list who are with us on conditioon that they make good If they deliver the goods for us in the spring, we will be obliged to make further payment for them. If they fail to make good, they revert to the clubs from which we bought them, ft is safe to say, however, that the to tal cost of players for next season will foot up to $30,000 by the time we are ready to announce the men who will form our permanent team."

WOMEN SUPERIOR IN ALL CLUB WORK Men's Organizations Provide Places for an Evening's Entertainment. FILL ONLY' A SOCIAL NEED RICHMOND WOMEN HAVE GIVEN INFLUENCE AND AID TO MANY WORTHY CAUSES A CONTRIB UTED ARTICLE. (Contributed.) Mrs. Russell Sags says that the dif ference between women's clubs and mens ciuds it tnat women start a club with an object in view, an ambl tion to attain. Men have nothing in view beyond material comforts." A woman's club organized for the object of self-culture alone, is of more value to the community than any of the so-colled social clubs of the men organized for some place to spend their evenings. But the ui-to-date woman's club does not exist for cul ture alone. Primarily, that Is the ob ject, but with the .culture and knowl edge that comes to the club woman from the preparation of club papers, comes also the realization that her in fluence means something in the world in which her child must get his edu cation and eventually his living. She must know the conditions in order to properly prepares him to meet them. A intelligent motherhood fs one of the most forceful influences for good in the world today. The club that does no work outside of its literary and social duties is an unusual one. Take our Richmond clubs for in stance. No one would say they have not been potent factors In the higli standard Richmond has attained along educational , musical and artistic lines. The clubs have been behind the manual training and yhpsical cul ture introduced in our schools, and have encouraged and assisted free kin dergartens. The women who work in our church societies, associated charities and free kindergartens are all club women. So the old theory that the club would cause the women to neglect the home duties and work in the church has been expploded. STATESMAN AND SCHOLAR Jamra Bryce, Who Come to Thla Country as an Ambamador. lue selection or James Bryce as British ambassador to the United States has met with much praise on both sides the Atlantic, and the choice is an unusual one, in that Mr. Bryce has never served in a diplomatic position before. It is considered that he confers dignity upon the position. for he is not only a statesman of high type, but a scholar of varied and exceptional attainments. lie Is best known In Americu as the author of "The American Commonwealth," which Is esteemed by many the most discrim inating, frank and yet friendly crit icism of our republic and its institu tions ever written. The American state department was sounded by the Brit ish government on the subject of Mr. Bryce's appointment previous to his se lection for the post, and the reply of our government was tc he effect that his appointment would be especially acceptable. It is said to be the first time a man without a title has been chosen to represent the British empire at "Washington. It was thought that Mr. Bryce would be raised to the peer age before leaving England for this country, but It Is now reported he will refuse rank and title of this kind, thus showing his sympathy with demo cratic ideas. The post which Mr. Bryce will sur render to take that of ambassador to the United States is the Irish chief sec JA1IE3 BliYCE. retaryship. He was one of the chief bulwarks of the Gladstonian home rule policy and has battled In the interests of Ireland during all his long public career. He was born in Belfast In 1838, hl3j mother being Irish and his father, the late James Bryce, LL. D., a Scotch man. The future ambassador was ed ucated at the Glasgow High school and university- and at Trinity college, Ox ford. He practiced as a barrister, was for nearly a quarter of a century re- gius professor of civil law at Oxford, has represented the South Aberdeen district in parliament for over two dec ades and has served in important cab inet positions tinder several govern ments. He has written numerous his torical works, one of the best known being his history of "The Holy Roman Empire." Like most English states men, he is fond of outdoor life, and his specialty is mountain climbing. He has been president of the Alpine club.

Dr. Orattan Guinness, fllrector of the regents union of England, who is In this country endeavoring to get the United States to join with England and other countries with a view to stopping the atrocities committed upon the Kongo native-?, said in a speech la New York: "When Stanley returned from his -pedition to central Africa the king of Belgium sent for the explorer. After seeing Stanley, Leopold sent a commis sion to this country. This commission told President Arthur that the king of Belgium had already established a trade association in the Kongo, and he asked whether the United States would recognize the flag of that association. The president wanted to know why he should do such a thing, and he was mm KlXa LEOPOLD OF BELGITTM.' told for philanthropic reasons that King Leopold wanted some power, some recognition, so that he. could have an influence over the natives for good. 'All right,' said the president; 'we'll do It.' This was in 1SS4. The next year almost every country fell in line. "If the king of Belgium had kept his promise to exert his power only for good, all would have been well. I'm sorry to tell you that he didn't. Every promise has been broken. "In 1800 rubber was discovered in the Kongo. Next the question arose with him: 'IIow can I get the natives to collect the rubber and bring it to me? I know. I'll do it in the name of taxation. "The natives now are compelled to bring the king of Belgium in rubber and ivory, about $10,000,000 worth of goods a year. To get the natiYes t( collect the rubber to pay this tribute to the king of Belgium the worst atroc ities known to modern civilization are practiced upon them. The most com mon form is to cut the hands or feet from their bodies, so that they may be an example to those who are recreant about collecting the rubber. Three million of these savages have been killed in the last few years, and the number which have been mutilated is beyond computation." In (lie Wrong; Closa.
