CARTER'S ANSWER TO SUIT
Demurrers Filed in the Federal Court
by the Ex-Army Captain.
Savannah, Ga., Nov. 5. 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
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.

12 DEAD ALREADY.
Ravages of Lockjaw Continue
Utfabated in St. Louis.
St. Louis, Nov. 5. The twelfth death
from tetanus resulting from the treat
ment of diphtheritic patients with anti
toxine supplied by the city occurred to
day, when little Mamie Keenan suc
cumbed. Her brother is not expected
to recover. His death will make four

Episcopal Church of Minnesota
lias a New Head.
St, Paul, Minn., Nov. 5. At 11 o'clock

three years missionary bishop of North
Dakota, was formally installed as head

of Minnesota, at Christ Church in this

TRAIL OF DIAMONDS.
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
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
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
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.

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.

This is only about an hour more than
