Haloway, colored, was arrested Friday morning charged witii stealing a pocketbook from Mrs. Clara Aldridge, who works in Wehe's photograph gal lery. She left her purse containing about $5 in money on one of the tables in the gallery. The colored woman who cleans the rooms was unable to be there yesterday, so she sent her daughter, who is Haloway's wife. Haloway went to the gallery with her, and seeing the purse on the table took it. The police were called. They went to Haloway's home, but he was not there, so they went to the gambling room at 1318 Qulncy street, the place that was raided by the police several weeks ago and there they found him. Haloway would not admit his guilt at first, but the women, his wife and her mother, persuaded him to tell what he had done with it. He then told the po lice that they would find the purse in the alley back of Steinberg's, which was true, but the money, except 70 cents, was gone. MORE RURAL DELIVERIES. Capt.

LOOKS LIKE HOLiAN. The primary election is being held this afternoon to choose a nominee of the Republican party for the office of rep resentative of the Thirty-eighth district to succeed Harry Safford, deceased. Oakland and Tecumseh townships and the First and Second wards comprise the district. It will not be known until late this evening who has been made the choice of the party. Councilman J. B. Betts and M. C. Holman are the two candidates asking for the nomination and a Republican nomination in this district is equivalent to an election. Mr. Betts is a Burton man, while Mr. Holman is for Curtis, as it was Curtis who suggested his nom ination. Otherwise Mr. Holman is un pledged. Mr. Holman himself says that he is unpledged and that he wants the office so that he can work for the in terest of Topeka in the coming legis lature, which means for the Semi-Cen-tennial exposition. Mr. Holman has never been in politics as a candidate, but he has proven him self a hustler in canvassing. He seems to have the best of it at the primary and will probably secure the nomina tion. Mr. Holman and his friends are very anxious that only Republicans Bhall vote at the primary, and they have taken the precaution to have special po licemen stationed at the voting places in order to keep out Democratic votes. They have also secured the Republican poll books and are keeping watch in that way, so that it may not be said when the result is declared that it was fraudulent on account of men not mem bers of the party voting as it was charged they did at the primary in the spring. The polls opened at 2 o'clock this af ternoon and will close at 7. MYSTERIOUS MAN. (Continued from First Page.) Morrison. Each count of the information charges murder in the first degree and included in each count are the inferior offences or degrees of felonious homi cide, of murder in the second degree and manslaughter in its several degrees. The instructions continue: "The defendant is presumed to be in nocent until the contrary Is proven. In nocent of the offense charged and inno cent of each and every essential element of such offense. The burden is upon the state to establish the guilt of defend ant by the evidence, to your sat isfaction beyond a reasonable doubt, and if, after a consideration of all the evidence in the case, you entertain a rea sonable doubt whether her guilt is satis factorily shown, she must be acquitted and if you entertain a reasonable doubt as to which of two or more degrees of the offense charged she is guilty, she may be convicted of the lowest degree only. "If any one of the jury, after having considered all the evidence in the ease and having consulted with his fellow jury men, shoul entertain a reasonable doubt of the defendant's guilt, then the jur can not find the defendant guilty." Judge Shinn defined justifiable defense and said: "If Clara Wiley Castle made an unlaw ful assault and attack upon the defendant and the defendant had reasonable grounds to believe that she was in danger of be ing killed, or of receiving great bodily harm from said Clara Wiley Castle she had a right to take such steps as to her, under the circumstances, reasonably seemed necessary in order to save her own life or to save herself from great bod ily harm, even to the taking of the life of said Clara Wiley Castle." Judge Shinn told the ejury that if they believed beyond a reasonable doubt that the statement presented by the prosecu tion as the dying declaration of Clara' Wiley Castle was made while her mind was clear and at a time when she knew she, would die from the wounds Inflicted by Jessie Morrison, they should consider it as a death bed statement. When Judge Shinn concluded, he an nounced that he would place no limit on the arguments of the attorneys. So the four lawyers for the state and the four for the defense have the privilege of talk ing as long as they wish, ft is possible, according to the lawyers, that the argu ment will continue until Tuesday noon. E. B. Brumback, county attornev, de manded a first degree verdict, and said in the course of his remarks: "If you find the defendant guilty. It will mean that every citizen of this common wealth will be secured in the safetv of his horns. But if you decide the other wav, it will render safety uncertain and there is no telling what moment our homes will be invaded and our near dear ones stricken down by an assassin's hands. Clara Wiley Castle was literally hacked to pieces, while surrounded bv the sup posed security of her own home. This is not denied. It was one of the most atro cious crimes in the annals of Kansas. Who did It? Jessie Morrison; she ad mitted it on the stand herself. "As to the motive do you think that Clara Castle in the early sunrise of a long and happy married career was plan ning to commit murder that morning? No. no. no!" The lawyer described in detail the crime and said that the evidence showed that Jessie Morrison had deliberated planned the murder of Clara Castle. She went there, he said, with murder in her heart and seeking revenge. She was provoked because Olin Castle had married Clara W iley and she was determined to wreck a nappy home. The emphatic plea of Prosecutor Brum back did not affect the prisoner and she and the different members of the Morri son family who surrounded her appeared to be in better spirits than at any time -during the trial. V- J- Mooney of Eldorado opened for the defense. "Mr. Brumback has told ',?"'., sal2 he- "that Clara Castle was on the threshold of a happy married life. I want to say to you that the little grave upon the hill is a happier place for her than life would have been with Olin Cas tle, if he had shown himself to be the kind of a man that he was before his marriage. Mr Mooney said he believed that Mrs. Csstle, if she were starting out in a happv career of marriage, would reasonablv call 111 the woman whom she hated and who had made her jealous and would remove her from her path. Mr. Mooney was interrupted bv the noon recess. Olin Castle was not present dur ing hi3 argument. a W Illlfl II vn ctrnar caw ni icr DOCTORSAT WAR City and County Authorities In a Controversy Concerning Treatment of In digent Cases of Siclmess. INVALIDS NEGLECTED While Physicians Discuss Ex tent of Their Duties. County Seems Determined to Force Issue on City. The controversy concerning the obli gations of the county and city physi cians In the treatment of indigent cases shows no signs of settlement. On the contrary it has been augmented by an incident which transpired last night. Several weeks ago the county com missioners, the county physician, the county attorney," city physician and the poor commissioner called upon the at torney general.- It was agreed that the county physician should care for all pauper cases except contagious and in fectious diseases in the city, these latter cases to be cared for by the city physi cian. This was a definite understanding, but the county commissioners are charged with evading the agreement. Last night the police telephoned to Dr. Hogeboom, city physician, tnat there was a sick man at the Rock Isl and depot who needed attention at once. Dr. Hogeboom declined to attend the case, and told the police that they should call Dr. Ellinger, the county physician. Dr. Ellinger refused to attend the case unless he had an order from the poor commissioner. The order could not be cbtained, and the sick man was left in the depot. This is not the first case -where suf ferers were neglected because of the dis agreement between the city and the county as to who should take care of sick people who chance to be in the city. If the police find a person in immedi ate need of medical attention and call upon the county physician he will tell them that he can not visit the patient until he has a letter from Mr. Hale, the poor commissioner. Dr.' Hogeboom, the city physician, has received orders that he shall .attend only cases at the police station and contagious diseases in the city, and he is not obliged- to call on other cases. This is the way the matter stands. Several weeks ago a young man on South Quincy street was shot. The county physician would not attend him because he is not required to make call3 of that kind according to his contract with the county. The young man sat in a dirty room in the house in which he lived, with the wound in his leg unat tended for fifteen hours. Then City Physician Hogeboom called to see him. He could do nothing for the young man there and ordered him taken to Christ hospital, saying he would try and get the county to pay the bill. Dr. Hogeboom then saw Mr. Hale, who said that the county would not pay the bill, and Mr. Hale would not order the county physician to attend the case. The young man was treated at the hos pital and the bill of $50, for three weeks, was presented to the county commis sioners. They refused to pay it. It seems that the two commissioners who represent the county are trying to throw all the expense of taking care of such cases on the city, and the com missioner from the city is unable to protect the city, which pays five-sevenths of the county tax and yet is com pelled to take care of the county poor at its own expense. The county commissioners have or dered the county physician not to make a call, except to the poor farm, with out an order from Poor Commissioner Hale. They have a specified contract with the county physician as to his duties, and pay him $25 per month. Every one interested is compelled to get an order from Mr. Hale to the county physician before a case can be attended to, and then the commissioners will not allow bills for the cases. The two cases which have been men tioned are only incidents. Similar cases occur almost daily. While the county and city officials are quarreling over their respective obliga tions which exist, the sick people con tinue in their distress, neglected and unattended. In speaking of the matter this morn ing Mayor Drew said: "It is time that something was done. I do not know what to think of the county commis sioners; thev do not seem inclined to act fairly. The city pays its tax will ingly and the commissioners should see that the emergency cases are taken care of. They have made no provision for tak ing care of the cases, but on the con trary, seem to do all they can to avoid the care of poor cases and try to throw the cost on the city. "If the county will turn over the money the city pays for this purpose e will gladly undertake to care for all the poor sick in the city, but we can not be expected to do so and at the same time pay our money for that pur pose to the county. "I have had to pay money out of my own pocket time and again for the poor people the police have picked up at the railroad stations, and I have had to quit it because I can not afford it. "The commissioners agreed with the city attorney and the city physician that they would take care of all cases of sickness in the city except contag ious and infectious diseases. If they would live up to this we would be satis fied. But they make no provision for the care of emergency cases. Suppose a man comes in on one of the trains at night in a dangerous condition. The case Is at once reported to the police and thev are supposed to take care of them. IOs impossible to find Mr. Hale and get an order from him to the county phy sician, and that is what they require. "There are a number of cases that might be cited in the city where the commissioners seem to be derelict in their duties in this respect." Dr. Hogeboom said: "I think the commissioners are acting in a very shabby manner and I can not under stand why they do so, considering the fact that they agreed to attend to all the cases except contagious and infect ious diseases. In the case last nierht at the Rock Island station Dr. Ellinger went to see the case, but not tmt:l he was paid for it. I think that something should be done to settle the matter at once. I have been doing the work for the county in eases which come up in the citv and I have finally decided that I would do it no more. City Attorney Bird and the attorney general have told me what I must do and they have in structed the commissioners in their share of the work, but the commission ers seem inclined to avoid their part of it. I do not think it is the fault of the commissioner who represents the city, but the other commissioners appear to think that the more expense they can put on the city the better." Neither the mayor. Dr. Hogeboom or any of the city officers blame the county The use of "77" sends the blood tingling through the veias uutil it reaches the extremities, when the feet warm up and the Cold is broken. Like Malaria, Grip pervades every malady caused by taking Cold, and takes on a Grippy nature, including not only Coughs, Colds, Bronchitis, Catarrh and Sore Throat, but also Rheumatism, Kidney and Bladder diseases, which are either caused or aggravated by taking Cold.

STRIKE SPREADS. Santa Fe Sees Danger and Seeks New Men. Western Operators Go Out In a JJody Today. St. Louis, Mo., Dec. 8. The strike of members of the Order of Railroad Telegraphers which began several days ago on the Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe branch of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railroad in Texas, has spread west. At the headquarters of the Order of Railroad Telegraphers in this city it was learned today that all the operators on the Santa Fe Pacific, Southern Cali fornia and San Francisco & San Joaquin Valley divisions of the Santa, extending from Albuquerque, N. M.( to San Francisco, went out today almost to a man. While the national officers of the O. R. T. will make no statement as to their plans, it is hinted that if the manage ment of the Santa Fe does not grant the demands of the strikers within the next twenty-four hours the operators over the, entire system may be called out. Bureaus have been established in Chi cago, Kansas City and St. Louis for the purpose of hiring operators to take; the places of the strikers, but at the head quarters of the O. R. T. it is stated they are not meeting with much suc cess in getting men. BOERS LIKE CATTLE Will Be Corralled on Johannes burg Race Track. Johannesburg, Dec. 8.

Owing to the at tempts of sympathizers to communicate with the Boer prisoners at Greenpoint Camp, Maxim guns have been placed in position on the surrounding heights in readiness for a disturbance. POLICE INTERFERE Tienna's Present For Oom Paul Has Been Confiscated. New Tork, Dec. 8. A dispatch to the Herald from Vienna says: Mr. Kruger will receive no present from Vienna. This i3 not because he has lost the sympathies of the non-political section of the Vienna population, but because the police have confiscated the present in question. The man who organized this homage to Mr. Kruger, Demeter Kapuscha, has been found to be a swindler. He has been arrested and the present, consist ing of two valuable flags, two fine wa ter colors and a box? weighing a thou sand kilos, containing five thousand sig natures, has been seized in the interest of his victims. The incident has caused a most deplorable Impression. TODAY'S MARKET REPORT. Chcago, 111., Dec. 8. WHEAT Wheat which closed strong last night, ruled weak the first hour of trading today.
