In the Unit ed States court late Monday answers arid demurrers were filed by the defend ants in the case of the United States against Oberlin M. Carter and others. This is the case in which the govern ment has proceeded to hold up certain securities and other property hld in the name of Oberlin M. Carter or those closely associated with him. Ex-Capt. Carter, Lorenzo D. Carter, and Stanton I. Carter filed demurrers alike. The affidavit of ex-Capt. Carter Is dated at Leavenworth. Kas., October 85. It is contended that the government has made no case that entitles it to aa equity or relief, and that the bill con tains no matter of equity whereon the rourt can grant a decree or give any re lief. It appears upon the face of the bill. Bays the answer, that there is another suit pending for the same matter be tween the same parties. The discovery Bought in the bill is in aid of a criminal Buit and not in aid of a suit of a civil nature. There are several causes in the bill and- if the complainant is entitled to relief, it should have sued at law upon the several causes. The defend ant, therefore, demurs to the bill and isks the judgment of the court whether or not he shall be compelled to make further answer, and prays to be dis missed with his costs and charges most wrongfully sustained. The answer of the Edison Electric Illuminating company shows that on its books when it was . the Brush Electric Light company, Oberlin M. Carter ap peared as the owner of fifty shares of Its capital stock, six shares of which were transferred to him June 3, 1S95, six lhares June 23, 1S95, fifteen shares June 29. 1895, and twenty-three shares Oc tober 5, 1S95, all of which were trans ferred by Carter January 27, 1899, since which date no stock has been owned by Carter to the defendant's knowledge. That except as stated the defendant is a stranger to all the matters and things jn the plaintiff's bill. The defendant de nies all manner of unlawful comDina tions and confederacy wherewith it is by the bill of the complainant charged. The vner of the Savannah BrewinSI company shows that on June 1, 1894, there was issued to Carter certificate No. 431 for twelve shares of its capital stock, and on June 23, 1895, certificate No. 467 was issued to him for thirteen shares. The stock is still in the name of Oberlin SI. Carter on the company's books. The rest of the answer is similar to that of the Edison Electric company. All of the above answers and demurrers were filed by Walter G. Charlton, attor ney for the defendants. Ex-Captain Carter is in the federal prison at Leavenworth. MASONS AT FORT SCOTT.

Burglars Rob Jewelry Store and Spill Stones in Flight. Cincinnati. Nov. 5. Early today burglars broke the big show window of the Duhme Jewelry company's store on Fourth street between Vine and Race and stole about $20,000 worth of dia monds. In their flight they left a trail of diamonds indicating the direction thev took. The nieht watchman who was on the floor where the robbery took place, says he heard no noise and saw nothing of the robbers. The diamonds stolen were loose in a tray and the burglars are supposed to have taken advantage of the noise of a passing wagon, or car to break the glass and seize the tray and run, as they over looked much valuable goods in the same window. v A RUNAWAY GIRL. Dodge City Miss Leaves Home Arrested in Chicago. Chicago, Nov. 5. Dorothy Hinkle, the 16-year-old daughter of William Hin kle, manager for the Postal Telegraph company at Dodge City, Kas., is a pris oner in the annex at the Harrison street police station, and involved in her arrest is a story replete with romantic features, presenting the pretty school girl as the sweetheart of a railroad brakeman who left home because her parents objected to her suitor. The young woman was arrested by Detective Sergeants Brown and Buggie of the central station on a telegram re ceived earlier in the day from the girl's father. She was found at the home of a friend in the southwest part of the city, where, it is said, she has been most of the time since her arrival here ten days ago. When arrested the girl broke down and cried. She declared she did not want to re turn home, but desired to remain . in Chicago to meet her sweetheart, whose arrival she expected daily. The .de tectives, however, refused to listen to her pleadings and took her to the sta tion, where she will be kept in charge of the matron until her father can be communicated with. The girl's romance began two years ago, when she first met William Gard ner, 26 years old, who had gone west from New York city and secured a po sition as a brakeman on the Santa Fe railroad running ' from Dodge City, Kas., to La Junta, Colo. Gardner's uncle Is employed as sta tion agent for the same road at Dodge City, and the young man was intro duced into some of the best homes of the town, Dorothy Hinkle at that time was in short skirts, but she admired the brakeman and soon an attachment sprang up between them. They were much in each other's company, it is said, but owing to the ege of "the girl it was thought they regarded each other only as friends. This friendship, however, ripened into love, and it is said they engaged to marry. Two weeks ago Gardner is said to have asked the consent of Miss Hinkle's father, and it was then for the first time that the latter realized the situation. Mr. Hinkle, it is said, refused to listen to Gardner and in structed his daughter that she must not see him again. The chief objection to the marriage is said to have been the tender age of the girl. Both were told to wait until she had at least graduated from high school. Gardner apparently was satisfied, but the girl was obstinate. She decided to run away from home, and late one afternoon took a train bound toward Chicago. Nothing was known by her parents of her intention, and when she failed to return home at the usual time it was feared she had eloped. Gardner was found, however, ajid he claimed he was unable to explain the strange disappearance of the girl. Later it was learned that she was at the home of a married sister living at Tolona, III., but when a letter reached there she had left for Chicago. An other married siter lives in this city, but the girl last night refused to give her name or address. It is believed the girl had planned to meet Gardner here, as she frequently inquired for him last night. The police say they have been informed that Gard ner recently resigned his position anu left Dodge City, Baying he was going to the home of his parents in the east.

CURED BY C31 7I "The fusion reform forces are putting up a hard fight against Tammany rule and they may defeat Tammany. On the other hand, Tammany has put up Shepard. who is one of the best known lawyers in New York city and is a thoroughly good man " "What effect will Shepard's utterances and his fight on Tammany heretofore have on his candidacy : 1 doubt if It will have any noticeable effect." said Mr. Monroe. "Tammany had to get hold of somebody who would give it a clean bill of health and it selected Mr. Shepard. There is no doubt that the Tammany organization will support him solidly. What he has said against Tam many heretofore cuts littte figure with Tammany's supporters as long as he is their candidate. It is a peculiar situation. Tammany wants to win and this is the reason a man like Shepard was selected as its candidate." FAST OCEAN MAIL New York Letters Delivered In London a Day Early. -l New York, Nov. 5 Business men were surprised by the delivery of mails that left New York on Tuesday last, says the London correspondent of the Herald. The delivery was at least a day in ad vance of the usual time. Often it is Wednesday before they are delivered. This remarkable record is due to the rapid passage of the Kron Prinz Wil- helm, which arrived at Fly-mouth at m minutes past midnight on Sunday, thus covering the 2,978 miles in five days. eight hours and eighteen minutes. This is only about an hour more than the fastest passage ever recorded, which was accomplished by the Deutschland. MISSISSIPPI SCORES.
