mission." and the charge against them
grew out of the death of Edward Sack,
a 7-month-old infant. The child was an
inmate of the institution and became ill.

fect a cure, with the resuit that the
child died.

a crisp. Help was secured in time to
save the boy's life.
COTTON DROPS
On Strength, of the Government Crop
Report
New Orleans, La., Dec 10. The bu
reau report came like a thunder clap
to the local cotton market today. It
had been eagerly anticipated, but be
fore it was read on the floor of the ex
change at 11 o'clock there were perhaps
not a half dozen members of that body
who believed that it would exceed nine
millions and three-quarters. When the
figures 10.100.000 were given, the effect
on the market was instantaneous. It
dropped like a flash. In less than five
minutes from the reading of the report
March contracts declined 53 points, from
9.40 to 8.87. w hile May during the same
time went from 9.33 to 9.00. It was
shown therefore that the greatest weak
ness is in the near months. After the
sensational decline the market showed a
disposition to rally and to reach a level
again.

JOIflTISTS WIN.
Appeal Cases Knocked Out in
District Court-
Judge Hazen Holds That Appel
late Court Decision Applies.
XO "STFaP" TAXATION.
Property Taken Into City Mast
Sot Be Taxed This iear.
Territory North of SecondStreet
Not Legally Acquired.
Judge Ildizen. rendered two Important
decisions this morning in so far as the
city is concerned. The cases were Felt
va. City of Topeka which is known as
the "Strip" cae and was f i i el to prevent
the city collecting- taxes on the newly an
nexed territory; the other was The City
of Topeka. vs. FTank Murphy, which, is
one of the joint case?. Jn both cases the
decision was against the city.
The first case upon which the judge ren
dered a decision was the case of E. J.
Feit, et ai., vs. The City of Topeka. The
plaintiffs asked fur an injunction against
the city restraining them from collecting
city tax and school tax upon their prop
erty, which had been annexed to the city
last August. The plaintiffs claimed that
they had not been legally annexed and
that their property had not been legally
assessed by the city assessor.
In his decision Judge Hazen held that a.
part of the property taken in the city by
the ordinances which passed the council
last August was not legally annexed, be
cause it did not touch the city. It seems
that the city engineer's department mad
a mistake and left a tract of land forty
feet Wide between the old lines of the
citv limit and the property they proposed
to- annex. The judge held that this prop
ertv, which is that portion of the annexed
territorv Iving north of Second street, was
not a portion of the city, but he did not
sav anything about the balance of the
property annexed, which is taken by the
city authorities to mean that this strip
was the only part illegally annexed.
The judue decided that the city assessor
had not really viewed the. property, but
had made his assessment from the rec
ords f!e-i by the township assessor, which
is c!?ariv illegal.
"The township officers had made their
arrangement for the school year and the
city comes in in August and attempts to
take half of the money. This would be
an Injustice and is not in accordance with
the law which requires that the assess
ments be made before the city took in
the property, hence the city can not tax
the propertv for this year."
City Attorney Bird sttld the effect of the
decision would be that the city could not
collect the taxes for this year, but that
they could do so after the first of March.
"The strip of land which was annexed by
an ordinance lying south of Second stret-t
will require a not her ordinance before we
can take it in. but that we can easily do
before next year."
In the case of City of Topeka vs. Frank
Murphy the judge said he had taken tha
case as one of the seventy cases which
were the same and would give his deci
sion on the one case letting it apply to
the others.
The case was appealed from the police
Court and was one .f the many which
Wr-re made under the search, and" seizure
Hazn's opinion wa? in part as
following; The questions at issue in the
case arise upon a motion to quah the
complaint and also a motion to dismiss the
C4ue and lLschar-w the det"esidant.
"The case tiled in the police court shows
that the defendant wa charged with vio
lating ordinance Xo. 2otjl, was arrested on
a warrant for violating the same ordi
nance and sentenced in the police court
for violating that ordinance. Since the
trial and conviction in the police court
the court of appeals has decided that tni3
ordinancec is void, and that decision
is binding upon the district court."'
The judge cited a few decisions to show
that the court had only appellate jurisdic
tion in cases of this kind and then said:
"It aypears from these authorities that
the complaint mu?t charge the accused
with viola ting the ordinance of the city,
and where it charges the violation of a
particular ordinance, such as the cae at
bar. the defendant must he tried tinder
that particular ordinance. Thp city charg
ed the violation of this particular ordi
nance and the defendant can not be tried
for violating some other ordinance of the
ci t y.
"In this case the defendant was charg
ed, arrested and tried in the police court
for a violation of ordinance Xo. and
from that conviction he appealed to this
court, and must be tried under the same
ordinance- The court of eppea!s having
heid this ordinance void, the defendant
therefore wrongfully charged, tried, and
convicted and this court, having no power
or authority to try him for violation of
any ordinance, it follows that the defend,
ant must be discharged."
City Attorney Hird excepted to the de
cision ana" gave notice that he would ap
peal the ca-se to the supreme court. ;f
he was not satisfied with the f eciainn of
the court of appeals on validity of the
ordinance. This affects 110 appeal casts.
R. F. Hayden, attorney for the joint
ists, asked that the other joint cases he
dismissed and Mr. Bird objected. The
judge said he thought he had no right to
hold the cases over, as they were crimi
nal cases, but said he would withhold his
opinion of the question until tomorrow
morning.

MISS PALMER HERE.
Topeka Actress Talks of Her Work
and Success.
"Oh, you can not imagine how Klad I
am to be in dear old Topeka again."
exclaimed Miss Ethelyn Palmer this
morning; when seen by a State Journal
reporter. "-I have dreamed of this and
planned for it for months, but now that
the time has come for me to appear be
fore a Topeka audience. I am very
nervous. I got up this morning with a
bad cold and a splitting headache, but
I am not going- to worry any more, sim
ply do my best, and that is all any one
can do."
Since last summer Miss Palmer has
been playing the leadine role with
Frank Tannehill in "A TounfT Wife"
and has been successful in the part.
"How did I happen to take such a
part as this? it was very amusing. I
was reentered with a theatrical society
in New York, and one day when I went
for my mail the manager asked me If
I should like to play a part where they
had to follow me around with a mop
and bucket to mop up my tears. He was
s:j droll that, I said yes, and he intro
duced me to Mr. Tannehili's father.who
was a dear old man; I always make a
go with women and old men. He told
me about the part and asked me to go
and see his son: I did not wish to go
then but after much urging I consented
and when I saw Frank Tannehill it was1
another case of Trilby for I was fasci
nated with him and was wild for the
part. He said to come the next day and
if I could read the script satisfactorily
I could have the part: my reading
pleased him and the consequences are
that I have signed with him for three
years. Owing to my likeness to Mrs.
Leslie Carter it was first thought that
I should be booked as Mrs. Leslie Car
ter's double but that was flnaily given
up.
"Ever since I have been upon the
stage I have had little dashes of success
but this is the first year that I have
been successful right straight along,
and it is all due to Mr. Tannehill for he
is an ideal manager and has worked
long and faithfully with me, and I feel
that I have the ability to play the
part. At first the critics said that I
would make a success with melodrama
but not in emotional parts, as I was too
cold and had not enough feeling. I re
alized that I did not do the part justice
but finally one night in St. Paul I struck
the. keynote and since then I have suc
ceeded. "This has been such a delightful year;
we started last summer from New York,
went up through the mountains to Can
ada, through the far northwest, down
the coast, then straight to Topeka; from
here we go south and after that there
is no place in the United States that I
will not have visited except the Yellow
stone Park: we always visit the places
of interest and have such good times."
Miss Palmer has received many tlatter
ing press notices. Miss Edna Dorman of
Milwaukee, who takes the part of the
maid, is Miss Palmer's companion and Is
visiting with her at her home.
The costumes Miss Palmer wears are
exceptionally handsome: two of thm
are imported. The one she wears in the
first act i3 of cream silk veiled in chif
fon: this serves as a foundation for the
real lace over dress which is trimmed
with a touch of pink and yellow velvet.
The neglige gown in the last act is also
imported. When asked about her cos
tumes she laughed and said: '"Yes,
they are expensive, but when I bought
them I knew that I was coming to To
peka and I selected them with that ob
ject in view."
Miss Palmer is a crack shot and car
ries with her a dainty 1'ttle revolver
with a mother of pearl handle presented
to her by a western admirer; she has a
larger ore. however, which would prob
ably prove more effective, and she says
that they prove very safe companions.
Miss Palmer is a charming young wo
man and when talking of her profession
her face lights up and she is wonder
fully pretty. Xext year Miss Palmer i3
to have the leading part in "Money
King." and the next year it Is sail that
she will have a play of her own.
ICE BREAKING BOAT.
Duluth Inventor to Explain theSIerita
of His Craft to Canadians.
Duluth. Minn., Dec. 10. Captain B. B.
Inman of this city leaves tomorrow for
Montreal, where he will on next Wed
nesday explain before the Chamber of
Commerce of that city his proposed ice
crushing boat. Captain Inman claims

pose. The boats, each some 500 feet long,
will be constructed of iron at a s'.igut
advance over the ordinary cost of simi
lar sized craft and will do a general
passenger and freight transportation
business.

"I allers was agin these race tracks,
an' now I'm more opposed to 'em than

"Why so?" mildly inquired Mr. Sap

rible things the excitement of racin'
w ill make men do to one another."
"What does it say about them?"
asked Mr. S. in the same indifferent
tone.
"Why." rather excitedly replied Mrs.
S.. "it says that one of the men shot a
head of the other." Boston Courier.
"How is Ponsonby's boy making out
at college?"
"Oh. he doesn't cut much of a figure
