THE TOPEKA. DAILY STATE JOURNAL SATURDAY EVENING, JUNE 1,1907. WILLIE SELL HERE Failed to Pass His Examina tion as a Pharmacist. Not Dismayed and Will Try It Again. VISITS MR. SLATER. Says Topeka Is Most Beautiful City He Has Seen. Expects to Continue Work in Senator Griffin's Store. 'I am taking my first vacation," said Willie Sell, who was recently pardon ed by Governor Hoch after having served 20 years in tne state peniten tiary 'or the murder of the Sell fam ily on a farm near Erie, Neosho coun ty, as he sat in the office of his friend and counselor. Fred C. Slater, this morning. "I am returning from Kan sas City where I took the pharmaceu tical examination and failed to make the required grades to pass. "I was not greatly surprised nor dis- anDointed. for though I have had con siderable experience in compounding prescriptions and work or that Kind, I knew nothing of the mode of con ducting examinations of this kind or of the technical Knowieage necessary to secure a druggist's certificate. I will take another examination in about six months and think that with the things I learned this time I will have no trouble in making the required grades. "I could not think of passing through Topeka without stopping off and seeing Governor Hoch and Mr. Slater who have been my friends with out hope of remuneration or reward. Mr. Slater has given of his time and ability and has been one friend who has done more for me than anyone else and I want to publicly express my lasting gratitude to him. Governor Hoch, too, has done much for me. and I have his letter of advice in my pocket and have carried it with me since I received it. ' "Topeka is the most beautiful city 1 1 have ever seen, mougn iu i .....B" much since 1 was here last, 27 years ago. I was singing in a glee club at That time and Governor St. John s r.mniiirn was on and I toured the. state singing prohibition songs for the. state central committee." "You sing some now?" was sug-j gested. . "Oh, ves, a little, but I have not done much singing of late and I expect that' I am pretty badly out of tune. Sell Is a pleasant appearing young man whose age might easily be guessed at 25 though he admits that he is 37. He is well dressed and neat appearing and willingly discusses all the different phases of the crime which caused him to spend 20 years of his life in a felon's cell and of which he claims he is entirely innocent. There are no crow's feet about his eyes nor gray hairs on his head to indicate the troubles which havo been his and ap parently he bears no animosity to wards those who were responsible for bis imprisonment. "Many letters have been written to me from my old home district ex pressing sympathy and congratula tion," said he, "though I know that some harsh things have been written and said about the action of Governor Hoch because he pardoned me. There are but a few people who feel towards me as do these few but unfortunately they are of the wealthy and influen tial class. "Mr. Seth Wells has taken an active interest in the case and against me and is responsible for considerable of the agitation unfavorable to me in Neosho county and this can be ac counted for in only one way, politics. His mother might have been one of my principal witnesses but she was never placed on the stand for some reason. She was suffering from con sumption and was sitting near a win dow and saw the three men ride up the street on the night of the murder and Mr. Wells knows of this incident. The omission of her testimony is only one of the incidents showing some of the errors in the trial of my case. I have heard from nearly all of my rela tives since my release. One of my uncles, Harrison Sell, who disap peared shortly after the murder, has never been heard of since, though we have made repeated attempts to locate him. I remember many of the inci dents which occurred about the time of the crime and particularly the visit of this uncle just a few days prior to the murder. "There is no doubt in my mind that considerably more money was owned bv my father than has ever been ac counted for but the fact that $275 was found in his pocket was one of the strong links in the chain of evidence which convicted me. This money rep resented his salary for school teach ing for a full term and was drawn the day previously. "I hold no ill feelings towards any one and shall try and follow the ad vice of Governor Hoch and my friends. I have a nice place in Senator Griffin's drug store at Nortonville and receive the best of treatment from every one. I am behind the prescription . case a great deal of the time but as we han dle notions I wait on trade in all of the departments." Mr. Sell was shown through the me chanical department of the Topeka State Journal and took a deep Interest in the working of the linotype ma chines and the press which was run ring the colored supplement for the Saturday Issue. "It is all so different from what I have been used to seeing !n the printing line," he said, "for I have had some little experience in that department at the state institution where I was confined so long. "Down there they have a crude out fit when compared with the equipment of this office and I have had no know ledge of how the work is done on a great daily newspaper." He examined the minutest details of the battery of linotype machines and the press as well as the stereotyping apparatus. He Is the guest of Mr. Slater while in the city and expects to leave for Norton ville tonight to take up his work as a drug clerk. The Prudential State Savings bank placed a handsome new sign across the front of their building this morn ing.

Mr. Bowser was going about strik ing strange attitudes and muttering to himself, and he had cried out in his mid night sleep: "Lay on McDuff. and damned be he who first cries hold, enough!" Something was up, but just what it was Mr. Bowser was keeping to himself. She made cautious inquiries as to whether he was looking for a farm, in vesting in a flying machine or experi menting with a new hair dye, but ho only smiled in a knowing way in answer. When the cook was asked in a casual way if. she had noticed anything queer about him of late she promptly answer ed: "Yes. ma'am. I have, and I was think ing of giving notice before he broke out and set the house on fire or killed us with an ax. He acts just as my sister's husband did before he blew up the house with a bomb and jumped into the river." What have you noticed about him?" "Well, ma'am, he got out into the back yard the other evening and threw his arms around and muttered. He jumped ahead, and then sideways and back wards, and all the time he was mutter ing to himself. I went to a theater on y7imilluTT I OONT WANT.TO DE - the Bowery once, and Mr. Bowser acted just like an actor I saw there. Did you ever hear of an actor called Mr. Hamlet, ma'am?" "Hamlet is a character in one of Shakespeare's plays," replied Mrs. Bow ser. "Then that's what he's trying to be, and if you can't stop him I must quit my job. I'm the sole support of an in valid mother, as you know, and I don't want to be suddenly blown high-sky and leave hsr to go to the poor house." Mrs. Bowser felt that she now had the key of the mystery in her hands. That evening she was watching for Mr. Bow ser's return from the office. She saw him drop off the street car at his usual hour, and noticed that he stepped off with a one, two, three stride. As he entered the house he bowed ceremoniously to her and during the dinner hour he was lofty and superior. When they had returned to the sitting room he began pacing up and down, and presently she said: "Mr. Bowser I" want to talk with you for a few minutes. You have been act ing rather strangely of late. Have you got some great trouble on your mind that you are keeping from me?" "My mind was never more clear of trouble," he answered with a bow and a smile. "But you have got some plan on hand." "If I have, oh, woman, thou must re strain thy curiosity till such times as I see fit to unfold." "Are you thinking of acting on th stage?" "Methinks thou hast hit it close." "Then tell me about It. As a wife I am interested in your welfare." Hfe OtDN LOOK TO R.C wrso-rn "Well, here's the case," he said as he descended from his high horse. "About a week ago Mr. Horatio Blank, the celebrated actor and manager hap pened in the office just as I was re peating Hamlet's soliloquy for the ben efit of Green, and when I was through he was pleased to shake hands with me and ask if he could offer any in ducement for me to go on the road with a company he is organizing to play Shakes-peare's plays. I said nothing to you about the matter, knowing that you would treat it with your usual sar casm, but I have had two or three talks with Mr. Blank since. He is satisfied that I will make the greatest 'Hamlet' ever seen on the stage. I shall also play 'Romeo.' "You speak as if it was a settled thing," said Mrs. Bowser. "It is about as good as settled. He is coming here this evening for a final talk. He thinks he can pay me a sal ary of $400 per week, but Is going to let me know. We intend to introduce a new feature in theatricals play the whole year through. He believes, and I quite agree with him, that people long for Shakespearian plays in summer more than in the winter. Thus it will be $400 per week for 52 weeks in the year. Is there anything bad about that for an income?" "Does Mr. Blank want you to put any money in the enterprise?" "Y-e-s. a few dollars. I think he wants me to advance enough .money to pay for the piinting. He will pay me back double the amount when we get out on the road. He has had 21 com panies and all have made money. He is said to be worth a million dollars." "Then why does he want you to ad vance anything?" - - "WTiy? . Why? I don't know exactly why, but to show, that I am in earnest, I suppose. I might engage' with him and then leave him in the lurch." It was an explanation, but it didn't satisfy the explainer. He saw a smile on Mrs. Bowser's face and began to flush up as he said: "That's always the way with you doing your best to find some fault. I wish I hadn't said a word until the company was ready to start out on the road. : "I am not finding fault, Mr. Bowser, t am simply asking for information. There's a ring at the bell. It is pro bably your man Blank. Go ahead and make your arrangements with him. shall expect a box all to myself on the nrst night you play 'Hamlet, Mr. Bowser ushered his theatrical manager into the library and carefully closed the door and they took seats at the table. The said manager didn t look to be worth a million dollars. In fact, he didn't look to be worth much over 15 cents. His silk hat had wit nessed many ups and downs in the world, and his tightly buttoned frock coat was worn and shiny and showed that it had often stood before the free lunch counter and taken in the bean soup. His cuffs were frayed and his necktie faded and the hand that had darned one knee of his trowsers must have held a darning needle. He had his assurance with him, however, and that was the main thing, U With yov'1 "Oh. this dross this worldly dross:" he-sighed, as he sat down. "It should have nothing to do witn our noble profession, but unfortunately we cannot escape it. I have been fig uring this afternoon, and I find that it win take about seven tnousana to put us on the road in good shape. Of course, it will all come back to you sooner or later. There are ten or twelve parties who are anxious to fur nish the money, but as none of them can play 'Hamlet' I have turned them down." "Urn!" grunted Mr. Bowser, who had an idea that twenty-five or thirty dollars at moat would be want ed. "As for the part of 'Hamlet,' of course, you coudxi't expect to go right on and play it at the start. You must gradually work up to it. For the first two weeks you will bring the spade to 'Hamlet' to dig the grave with." "Um! Urn!" .... ., , "I wish we could make you a foot taller somehow. You are rather short and chunky to play the part." Mr. Bowser turned red and white. "We must also get you a wig to hide your baldness. Do you think you could reduce your -weight by sixty or seventy pounds? 'Hamlet' has no bay window on him, you know." "By thunder, man. but what are you talking about!" shouted Mr. Bow ser, as he rose up. "Calm thyself. Horatio," replied Mr. Blank, in soothing tones. " 'Ham let' must be 'Hamlet.' 'Hamlet' can not be Bowser." ! " 'Hamlet' be durned! Sir, you have insulted me!" " "Tush, tush. I like thy spirit, but the tones of thy voice hath a clarion sound. Sit thee down and we will talk of the long green. Seven thousand " "Seven thousand nothings! I don't like your style. I don't want to deal with you. This interview is closed." "And you haven't offered me a glass of wine nor a cigar. I was mistaken in you. You couldn't play 'Hamlet' any more than a bull could play a church organ. Good-night, sir. I can find my way out. If I hear of a brick yard for sale I will put you next." Mrs. Bowser was in the sitting room. As Mr. Bowser came out he was all a-bristle and ready for battle, but she simply looked up and smiled and said: "Isn't it a rather cold night, dear, for this time of year?" Mr. Bowser didn't answer, but he thought it was for him. (Copy righted, 1907, by Homer Sprague.) BALLi TEAM SUSPENDED. University of Chicago Plays a Smooth Trick That Makes Them Trouble.

In speech at last night's session of the Confederate reunion, which aroused the convention and which formed the most important feature of the reunion thus far. Colonel Robert E. Lee. jr said: "For the purposes of this occasion we care not how the African slave nrst placed his unhallowed feet on southern soli. Although the south had at one time no inconsiderable career of maritime adventure 'no ship or shipmaster of hers has ever in a single case Deen implicated In the illicit African slave trade.' Her trreatest men always maintained slavery to be Liie most dangerous element in tne country. "Virginia In October. 1778. and Georgia, in 1798, passed acts prohibit ing the importation of slaves. Thus, to the everlasting credit of the south upon whose devoted heads holy wrath has been so unjustly poured out. she leads the world in an earnest attempt to prevent the very thing of which she is accused. "Secession was not preached for the first time in the south. It was threat ened in the north four times before South Carolina seceded. First from Colonel Timothy Pickering of Massa chusetts, opposing the acquisition of Louisiana; second, from Josiah Qulncy of Massachusetts, over the proposed admission of Louisiana as a state; third, from the Hartford convention, in which five states were represented, over the dissatisfaction occasioned by the war with Great Britain, and fourth from the legislature of Massachusetts because it was proposed to annex Texas to th federal union. "When the red curtain of war rolled up on the American stage, it re vealed the country in arms ready ana willing to defend all that makes -life worth living, the future of the coun tr-'. the honor of the people, the sanctity of the home."
