Ala. twenty-flve years old, was declared Insane today in tne probate court by a commission con sisting of Drs. Ryder and Hayslip, with Dr, Hammel as examining pnysicwu. She will be committed to the asylum and her six-year-old daughter, Mar guerite, will be sent to the orphans home for the time being until her relatives or father can be located. The doctors found that Mrs. Ala was suf fering from delusional insanity. She has a mania on religion and had an Idea that she was being examined in the probate court for the purpose or qualifying for a certificate to Preach the gospel in the Wesleyan Methodist church. She asked Judge Hayden for such a certificate at the conclusion of the Inquiry into her sanity and in or v.a ov, nniri he returned to jail without any trouble the judge said he would fix one up and send it to her. Mrs. Ala and her husband have been working for Dr. Metty, whose home is on Polk street near Thirteenth street, xi - y,,,y, loft her a couple or weeks ago and it is believed that he wi-nt to the wheat fields.

She was -i,,i v, rtf Rvdpr during her pre liminary examination who her nearest relative was ana .Y . ;C' mighty." Then she added that she had a mother living but she did not know her whereabouts. She was asked if she had any pro perty or money and replied: "No, I'm poor. I haven't got a cent. I am as poor as a bedbug but I am rich in the Almighty. And Almighty God don t want me here. He wants me to preach the gospel in the Wesley Methodist church and If you don't give me a certificate to do so why God will send me one. He has told me so." A little later on in her examination she declared that she had been to heaven once and was going there again when God called her and on this sec ond trip she was going to take a Leav enworth man with her. She showed a photo of the back of the man's head which she had pasted on the back of a large carnival button that was wreathed with ' the stars and stripes. She said this was a picture of the lucky individual she was going to take to heaven with her. When inquiry was maae into ner mu rlori life she said: "I have been married for seven years and that is long enough for anyone to live with the devil." Mrs. Ala insisted that she had never had anv fits or spasms, sue aneraru admitte'd that she often felt fits coming cn but she was aDie to lain neracu jui of them by holding hour conversations with God and tnen navms a. j Tiuririr another part of the inquiry she announced that she had been living an ungodly life with her husband for seven years and that it was her desire to go back to Leavenworth where she could "get right with God." through the state free employment bureau, are sending their agents out In search of men. and are distributing handbills offering employment to men There is not any greater shortage of harvest hands this year than usual, but the demand has been increased re cently by favorable weather for wheat.

It is this regulation which Governor Hoch is trying to have abolished. FIX UP TROUBLES. Drainage Controversy In Kansas City Is Compromised. A compromise was entered into be tween the Kansas City drainage board and the Union Pacific. Rock Island, Kansas City Southern, and the Kansas City Live Stock company in the fight over an attempt to widen tne mourn 01 the Kansas river and secure a better flow of water. The drainage board taxed some of the cost of the con templated diking and widening upon the above companies. They in turn fnurht back and claimed that me board had no right to place a cost on their shoulders which would mean condemnation of land and attacked the legality of the act which authorized xne appointment 01 a cuiiihhij ing of Commissioners Milner, Meyn, Daniels and Monoghan. Hearings for the past six months have been had before Charles Biood Smith, special master, and the report of the special master was about ready to be filed when the compromise meas ures were Drooosed.

Cap tured last Thursday and thrown into the dungeon in the basement of the city jail, he contrived to be free again by Monday. Some accomplices crawl ed into the basement and handed him a section of iron pipe, with which he pried off the door of the "bull pen," a steel cage used only for bad ones and walked away. Chief Eaton went hunting for "Pie," and discovered afterwards that the game was hiding in a clump of weeds less than a rod from the point where the trail was lost. "Pie" has 65 days coming to him, but It is doubtful if he ever serves out the same. He is an expert on the -"get-away" and has escaped five times in the past two weeks.

Charles H Mover waa retained as president ana William D. Havwood assecretary-treas urer of the Western Federation of Min ers by the federation convention today although they are imprisoned in Idaho on the charge of complicity in tne mur der of former Governor Frank steunen hers-. As the constitution of the fed eration forbids the election to these positions of members not in attendance at the convention the election of presi dent and secretary-treasurer was pass ed by general consent, no nominations being made for these offices, and under the constitution the incumbents will hold over until their successors are chosen. THEY FIX IT ALL CP. County Commissioners Adjust Treas urer-County Clerk Controversy. After giving the matter a great deal of consideration and after lengthy controversy with J. J. Schenck, the county attorney, the members of the board of county commissioners issued statement Monday afternoon con cerning the controversy started by S. G. Zimmerman, the county clerk, to the effect that F. C. Bowen, the county treasurer was withholding certain fees that properly belonged to the county. The members of the board declare in their statement that certain fees were given to the treasurer by them as pay for extra work and say that in order to avoid further complications he shall turn the fees over to the county fund in the regular way and they will formally appropriate a sum of money, of the exact amount of the fees which have been retained, to pay him for the extra work. Mr. Zimmerman contends that the treasurer has no right to accept mon ey other than his salary for the work performed. This leaves room for another chapter in the controversy.

Charles Blood Smith, special master, last evening held that the United States circuit court had no jurisdiction in the bill which Miss Conley filed. SANTA FE MAKES A RATE. Harvest Hands in Parties of Five May Travel for Cent a Mile. In response to a request from Gov. Hoch the Santa Fe has put in a rate of a cent a mile for harvest hands, available for five or more, from the Missouri river to the harvest fields. The governor requested that the rate be made from the Mississippi river, whicli would include Chicago and St. Louis, and addressed his letter to both the Western Passenger association and to W. J. Black. The .Santa Fe is the only road to come back with an im mediate concession. The people out in the wheat country unable to yet much satisfaction Joseph S. Rogers, bookkeeper in the office of State Auditor James Nation, resigned his position today and went to work as bookkeeper in the office of State Treasurer Mark Tulley, succeed ing Ben Johnson in Mr. Tulley's office. Mr. Rogers' successor in Mr. Nation's office has not been appointed. The above changes are of not a little political significance for they mark the parting of the ways for Seth Wells, former state auditor, and James Nation, who was his assistant for four years, and who succeeded him as state auditor. Wells and Nation both are from Erie, Kansas, and have been friends for years, but they have disagreed completely since Mr. Nation became states auditor. The trouble arose when Mr. Nation appointed Mrs. Maudie Gtlyeat his spec ial assistant, instead of appointing J. S. Rogers, who is related to Mr. Wells. Both Mrs. Gilyeat and Mr. Rogers were old employes of the office, but Mr. Na tion preferred Mrs. Gilyeat for the place. Mr. Wells claimed that Mr. Nation had promised to give the place of special assistant to Mr. Rogers, and Mr. Na tion denied that he had made such an agreement. This was what led to the falling out. Mr. Wells came to Topeka a few days ago while Mr. Nation was at Erie, and fixed things up with Treasurer Tulley eo that Mr. Rogers would be taken care of, in place of Ben Johnson, who has Seen in the treasurer's office for a number of years. complete the site for the proposed new Euclid school. With these two lots the board will have the entire block, bound ed by Fifteenth, Sixteenth, Bucnanan and Lincoln streets, for the school site. All of the lots on this block with tne exception of the two in question have already been purchased by the board and the total price paid tor tne pro perty in hand was $3,650. The two lots that the hoard nronoses to condemn are owned and occupied by John Wear. He has fixed a price of 3,000 lor inese two lots which is nearly as much as the other 14 lots cost. The memoers oi the board thought that the price set by Mr. Wear is a trifle exorbitant and the committee on buildings was directed to take the necessary steps to condemn the property in question. E. E. Roudebush sprung something of n Riirnrlse at trie meeting DV movnm the Rnnnintment of a committee of members of the board to investigate certain rumors that the selection of text books bv the state text book com mission had been influenced by bribery. There was considerable discussion as to Because he was tried twice for the the propriety of such action and finally same offense, David F.

It provided that who was serving a term in the peni- unloading from the cars on the wav to tne circus. Huggins resisted arrest. struggling to get away from the officers and walker landed on his head with a club. Several women among the crowd of spectators thought the negro was sure ly killed, but he was not by a large majority, xne top or the skull, which was gauged to fit the occasion, might have unsettled the average citizen, but the policeman knew Huggins of old. Al- vnougn tne use or. a club looked unnec essary to many of the spectators, it had no serious effect on Huggins, and didn't even straighten a hair in his head. Ho will be tried for his misconduct thlsaf terroon. POLLOCK SETS HIM FREE Holds That David F.

C. Pollock on an application for a writ of habeas corpus. The case is of interest from the legal questions which were ivolved and which have excited con siderable attention. David F.

His refusal was based on the grounds that the court martial was in valid because one of the iudees had formed an opinion as to the guilt of tne accused. A grand jury then in dieted Evans in the United States court. Eastern district of Missouri, and after being tried and convicted Evans was sentenced to serve five years in the federal penitentiary at Fort Leav enworth, lie made application for a writ of habeas corpus, on the ground that he had been twice in jeopardy for the same offense.

Kemp has hied a pen- viewing officer, one member of the court had formed an opinion touching the guilt of the accused. But I am of I the opinion this fact did not go to the I jurisdiction of the -court to act In the premises. That court had jurisdiction of the offense charged and of the per son of the accused, , was regularly con vened under constitutional authority, and had the power to .inquire as to the guilt-or Innocence of accused, and the qualification or disqualification of its members. It did inquire, and did con vict the accused. Its action was per haps irregular and -subject to reversal, but was not without jurisdiction, and was valid until disapproved. "I am of the opinion the constitu tional rights of petitioner have been invaded, that he has been twice placed in jeopardy for the same offense, and in view of the ruling of the supreme court in the Grafton case, the prayer of the petition must be granted, the writ applied for must issue, and the petitioner be discharged thereunder."
