THE 31. E. PHILLIPS CASE. liev. John II. I'unlun In formation :ontrilute9 Almut It. No out? seems to know what Las be come of M. E. Phillips, the mau who was released from the asylum oa June 20 by order of Judyo Ha,:eu of the district court. Phillips is ti e man who was con lined live years in th ; state insane asylum here, illegally. Phillips convinced every one that he is now perfectly fane. lie asserted that he hud never been insane, and that he was sent to the asylum with out the forms of a trial before the pro bate court. The records at the asylum show that Phillips was regularly tried before the probate court of Smith county, and ad judged insane April ;0, la. The state ment of the case says that Phillips gave evidence of homicidil and suicidal ten dencies. The asylum record shows that he was under the delusion that he could hear voices of people in Smith county, but the only record of any violence on his part was on Oct. 31, 1S&0, when he demanded his liberty and tried to take the keys from an attendant The record suddenly breaks off early in when the statement is made that Phillips was sulleu iu manner. Nothing more about the case is on record at the asylum. iu relation Tv the case, the following letter has been received at the Journal office: To the F.ibtor oi t lie State Journal. S?ik: In your issue of the 29th I see the account of the release of M. K. Phil lips from the iusaue asylum by a writ of habeas corpus. This should reveal one of the boldest and blackest crimes known to the citiena of Kausas. This man eays that he has bee n contined in the in sane asylum of KtiDf-as for live years, and yet perfectly sane. This statement -Mr. Phillips will Lave no trouble to prove. Nor do I think it any difficult matter to prove that it was a known fact to the officers of that institution, it they were blind to such a fact they were cer tainly unlit for that position; if they were aware of it i which 1 believe they were;, then they know tho condition under which ho was brought there, and there fore know who is responsible for his cuniineineuL The lws of justice to hu manity demand that light be thrown upon this darkness in February of IsO ) I was engaged as attendant in thai institution. 1 was placed ou 15. 1 ward, the most violent in the asylum. As I glanced around at the occupants my eyes rested on this man, Phillips, neat and tidy in appearance, his every bearing showed hiui to be a man of intelligence, conversant with any subject, sociable ami courteous. At the dinner table the lirst day I askea the other atteudaals w.iat was the matter with that man w.th the gray suit on. They said nothing. 1 then asked what he was there for, wLen the head attend ant said that this was one of the myste ries of the institution. During the day Phillips told me the same story he told your reporter and up on the witness stand. This he often re- i peated during my stay there aud always the same, lie would frequently urge me to look after his case aud see what could be done. 1 told hi:n as long as I was au employe in the institution I could do nothing, but when I quit would bee what could be done. I remained there only a few months. I then wrote to two lawyers in Smith Ctnter, asking them if they knew anything' about his case. I re ceived no reply. 1 then wrote to his sis tr in Dakota. She wrote to the super intendent, Dr. Lastuan; he replied; she then wrote me, send ing his letter. His re ply to her in substance was about this: 'Yes your brother Mr. Phillips is an in mate of this institution aud we consider him a very bad mat ; he has spells dur ing which he is almost uncontrollable, lie is a man we deem unlit to be at large." When I read this I ws fully convin ced that there was something "rotten" fcbout the case. Hi j sister said she would look after him aud see what could be done. I left it with her supposing that something would be done. I have mala inquiries about him since, but could learn nothing. The last thing Jlr. Phillips said to me was "you will be called up hi as a witness in this case before it is over with." A number of attendents can be found who will testify to what Mr. Phillips ha? stated. Something is wrong. 1c demands investigation. It is an act akin to heath enism rather than becoming to modern civilization. Every citixiii of Kaus is has a right to know of such thincs if they exist iu her institution of charity. I am yours for the right., Ki.v. .John 11. Pi kdil. Centropolis, Kan. HE" IS CRAZY. Frtd Garland Is ioiuid Insane l!y the Probate Court.

The Supreme court iu the list of decis ions handed down at this term of court decides the witness liquor law unconsti tutional. This is a black eye to the tn forcemeut of the law as the county .tt jr ney without that law has no power to compel a witness to tell what he knows about violations of the law.

Dr. Yellowstone, whose " medicine show" on Quiney street has drawn a packed street nightly, enjfatred in a fight with Dr. Pnttee in the corridor of the Fifth Avenue hotel Thursday evening, that came near resulting' disastrously. Dr. Pattee is said to have made some disagreeable remarks about .Mrs. J. II. Stewart, the wife of Dr. Yellowstone's associate. This led to some unpleasant ness which was dropped, however, until the doctors got into an argument over the length of time they have been prac ticing medicine. Dr. Pattee claimed to have practiced for twenty years, and Dr. Yellowstone bet $200 he hadn't practiced that long. The money was put up, but the witnesses by which Pattee wished to prove his claim were not acceptable to Yellowstone, and the argument became more heated and the men were soon call ing each other liars and worse names. Finally Dr. Yellowstone shoved Dr. Pattee through the door into the ante room aud Pattee struck his adversary over the eye with his list. Then Dr. Yel lowstone went up stairs to his room and soon came djwn, revolver iu hand. lie is a aid to have pointed it at Pattee, but that physician threw up his hands and jumped behind several guests, of whom quite a crowd had assembled by the quarrel. Two policemen came and hos tilities were soon brought to a close. .Later in the night the quarrel is said to have been reuewed. fso arrests have been made but Pattee threatens to have Yellowstone arrested.
