JfriJrater Doesn't Weaken Ardor of Players. Hamilton, Mass.. AiiK. 27. A dry Ttnrthi'nster wa thrashing itself out over the hill and dales of the Myopi hunt club when play was begun in the fourteenth open golf ehampionnhip. The experts exprensed themselves as delighted with the conditions and everything seemed to the players to be favorable to low scores. The field which was sent away In pairs at five minute Intervals was unusually large and included seventy professionals and 13 amateurs. Among the former vas lAlex Koss, the winner of last year'f vent; Willie Anderson, a four-time national champion and the winner of the last open championship at Myopia; Al C. Smith, the 1906 champion, his brother Willie Smith, who captured tht event In 1899, Lawrle Auchterlonie, the 1900 champion, and Fred Herd, who won at Myopia 10 years ago, when It was a nine hole course. The amateurs Included Walter J. Travis of Garden City, and Kben M. Byers of Pittsburg, both former amateur champions. In the crowd of players which feath ered about the first tee, the majority were foreigners by birth, but the pro portion of Americans among the pro fessionals was larger than ever before. The players found the northeast Kale a much harder problem than they had anticipated and lost balls and drives out of bounds were comparatively fre quent. The first players to finish thi first nine holes were Ernest Wayo, of Detroit, and James Campbell, of the White Marsh Valley club, the former covering the course in 44 and the latter In 42. FATHER OF IXDIAV PRIEST. Btephen Negahnquet Is Visiting Ijand of Ills Birth. Stephen Negahnquet is here today visiting Albert McClaln at 606 Law rence street. Mr. Negahnquet, who Is a full blood Pottawatomie, was born near Bur nett's mound in 1853. He is well educated and has been designated by the government to take the census of the citizens' band of Pottawatomie and that is his business in Topeka.

J'atent .Medicine Teddler Helped Out the Secretary. . While out in western Kansas a few days ago. Dr. a. J. Crumhine. the head of the pure food and drug department of Kansas, had an experience with a patent medicine vendor which tended to soften his heart to that class of Itinerant merchants upon whom he has been waging warfare. Dr. Crumbine found It necessary to make a trip across country to connect with a certain train. He hired an automobile for the Journey, but about half way between towns, the machine Broke down. It looked as though Dr. Crumbine was destined to miss his train, when there hove in sight one of the big wagons of a patent medi To shake his hand, to feel the magnetism of his personality, is a privilege only a few of the millions of his admirers have enjoyed. But His Voice Is Within the Reach of All The most noted of his famous speeches have been perfectly recorded on Edison and Victor Talking Ma chine Records. A revelation is in store for you if you come to Roehr's to hear them. ' W. F. Roehr Music Co. Topeka, Kansas pi I." M I ever ueiure. cine seller, who travels about the country dishing up "sure cures" for all the Ills of mortals. The medicine man saw the predica ment of the automobile and threw out the life line to the stranded Topeka physician and pure drug expert. Dr. Crumbine grabbed at the chance, and climbed into the wagon. "I expect I am the last man you would want to help on a journey," said Dr. Crumbine to the medicine seller, when they were settled In the wagon. Then he explained who he was. The medicine man confessed that he knew about the crusade against "sure cures" which Dr. Crumbine has been making. Nevertheless, the two men rode har moniously to their destination, dis cussing all the way the requirements of the pure drug law, and the necessity for its- enforcement. When they ar rived. Dr. Crumbine said: "I'm greatly obliged to you for the lift, and I want to pay you ror It." "Oh, there's no change," said the man. "It's been worth a good deal Just to hear you talk." LIMITON appeals. American Bar Association Goes on Record in Its Favor. Seattle, .Aug. 27.- The " American Bar association last night by a- sharp division of the vote, adopted the re port of the special committee appoint ed a year ago to suggest remedies and formulate proposed laws to prevent delays and unnecessary cost In litiga tion. This action puts the body on record as favoring the restriction of appeals by the higher courts to cases where actual prejudice is shown, rath er than on purely technical grounds. The report contained a bill to be pre sented to congress making proposed amendments to several sections of the act regulating Judicial procedure In the courts of the United States. They covered appeals -both in civil and criminal cases. A sharp debate on the report followed its Introduction. F. W. Lehman of St. Louis, and Everett P. Wheeler, members of the commit tee, led the discussion in support of the report, and Charles W. Burch led the opposition. The final vote was 60 to 22, showing the necessary two thirds majority to carry a resolution for endorsing legislation, according to the rules of the association. OSE DAY OF WEDDED BLISS.

To Talk to Bill Bryan ENFORGETIIE LAW Governor Fort Warn9 Atlantic City What to Expoct. Will Hare a Closed Sunday One Way or Another. i EITHER MARTIAL LAW An Extra Session of the Legis lature, or Both. Old Fieht Between lWa.1 An. thority and Public Sentiment. Atlantic City, Aug. 87. Governor Port's startling proclamation created a sensation here. His drastic atti tude on the. subject of violations of the law was the sole topic of conver sation everywhere. The grand jury Is meeting again today at May's Land ing, the countyseat and much curios ity Is expressed regarding the outcome of the body's deliberations. A week ago the grand Jury after much delib eration handed down but two indict ments against alleged violators of the Sunday liquor law, other charges be ing postponed. The following Sunday was declared by observers to have been more "wide open" than ever be fore. Members of the grand jury and Atlantic City officials declared that there would be no Indictments or en forcement of laws against Sunday li quor selling and gambling until after the close of the season. As a severe storm is prevailing and summer vis itors are leaving the resort in great numbers, it is possible that the grand jury may conclude, that the season la closed. The sheriff has made no effort to enforce the laws relative to selling li quors on Sunday," the proclamation reads. "The chief of police will make no effort to enforce those laws or the laws against gambling and immoral houses and lewd women unless so or dered by the mayor and the mayor re fuses to so order. Therefore I, as gov ernor of the state, propose to see that the laws are enforced and to that end I will ask the legislature for power to remove delinquent officers and other wise enforce the laws. Choice of Remedies. "Two methods suggest themselves as a remedy when the officials refuse, and the courts of law are powerless to punish the wrong doer. "First, to call out the militia and police the city with soldiers and close up the illegal places by the military arm of the state. This amounts to de claring martial law. As the execu tive of the state I dislike to order such extreme measures without an appro priation to cover the expenses first made by the legislature or some great emergency. "Second, call the legislature to gether to grant an appropriation to cover the cost of the militia in case of its being called out or to enact legislation to place the drawing of all juries in the hands of an. independent commission that rair men may ne selected for this City: and, . also to authorize-the governor or the courts to remove, after hearings officials who wilfully and perversely refuse to do their duty. "This address to the people of the state is Issued that the violaters of the law at Atlantic City and the officials who stand by and refuse to prevent or punish such violators may db warnea of the fact that in case of their fur ther refusal to enforce or obey the law the legislature will be convened to meet the emergency. "If a successful effort is not made by the officials and citizens of Atlantic City to enforce the Sunday law against the sale of liquor beginning on Sunday next, August 30, I hereby by this pub lic Btatememt notify the citizens of the state that I shall forthwith issue a proclamation calling an extraordinary session of the legislature of the state, that legislation may be enacted under which the laws of the state may be en forced in all place and equally upon all the people in the state and I call upon all good people in the state with out regard to partyu creed or citizen ship to take steps to voice their senti ments upon the all absorbing issue now before the people of the state, namely, shall the laws of the state be obeyed?" For two years or more the citizens league has been active in obtaining evidence against alleged law breakers. This evidence according to the league has been ignored by the various grand juries. It is the custom for the grand Jury to meet in the fall after the sea son is over and act on the cases pre eenteri. The members of the jury usually make no secret of their lack of sympathy with enorcs to curian inn privileges of pleasure seekers who fre quent the resort. Joseph Salus, the foreman of the present grand Jury, re cently declared in an interview that al though he was a teetotaler he favored an open Sunday because the business interests and 'the patrons desired it. This is practically the sentiment of all the city and county officials with the exceDtion of County Prosecutor Gold- burg who recently created a sensation by publishing a list of gambling houses and denouncing the city officials for failing to enforce the law. The term of Mayor Franklin H. Stoy is about to expire and there has been a hot fight over his renommation. tie. cently it was announced that this op- position had in a measure subsided and that Mr. Stoy would probably be re nominated. - Last Sunday after an unusually large number of people had participated in the pleasures of the resort Mayor Stoy declared that it had been a great day for Atlantic city ana pomtea proudly to the general good order which pre vailed. KIXNGKNBERG COMING BACK. Will Again Take Charge of the Wash burn Music School. Dean Alf. Klingenberg of the music department ftf Washburn college, will return this fall to resume the active management of the department. Prof. Klingenberg was granted a year's save of absence by the trustees of the col lege this spring and he had not expect ed to return to college work until the fall of 1909.

There will be more delay than usual this vear In setting out the statistical reports concerning the railroads of Kansas, owing to the fact that the In terstate commerce commission, which furnishes the blanks used, is preparing new forms, and has not yet received the blanks from the printers. As soon as they are ready, they will be sent to Kansas, and by the Kansas commls sion distributed to the various rail road companies. It is thought that the statistics will be available by the time the legislature assembles. The legis lature is always anxious to . dig into railroad statistics. - - t Des Moines Defeats Lincoln.

Woman Accused of Billik Murder Appears at the Inquest. Chicago, Aug. 27. A continuation of the Herman Billik murder trial is again before the courts and this time a woman is accused of the crime. The sensational conviction and "re prieve at the last moment of Herman Billik has attracted : much attention. Billik was convicted of the murder of a man named Niemann entirely upon circumstantial evidence. Through the efforts of Father O'Callaghan Herman Billik was granted a reprieve at the last moment. The campaign instituted by Father O'Callaghan was unique. He gathered together all of the Catholics on the street corners of Chicago and the mothers and children prayed to the Almighty to protect . Herman Billik. The result of this strenuous campaign and the- assurance of -Father O'Callag han that he -could -produce the guilty party, led to the reprieve less than 24 hours -before the time set for Billik's execution. Since that time Father O'Callaghan has- been constantly at work securing evidence which he thinks will acquit Billik and place the guilt on Krama Niemann, a niece of the mur dered man. The evidence at this time Is being produced at the inquest oyer the body of Herman Niemann, the hus band of the accused woman, who also died mysteriously, which is being held at Wheaton, 111. For the first time during the inquest Mrs. Emma Nie mann appeared in her own behalf. This was entirely contrary to the advice of her attorney, but it seems now that her statements on the 3tand proves her innocence beyond the shadow of a doubt. Many of the details of circum stantial evidence which had been col lected against her were successfully ex plained by her in her testimony. Seldom has a case received the pub licity that this one has. The public demonstrationsipn the streets of Oliicago show the interest taken by local people in behalf of Herman Billik. Father O'Callaghan Is a power of strength among the Catholics and bis efforts are largely the ground for Billik s reprieve. Should It be proven that any other than Herman Billik is guilty of this heinous crime the world, will have to thank Father O'Callaghan for saving a mis carriage of Justice. G AFFORD WILL HELP. Appointed to Assist J. Jf. Dollev and William Beck. ' J. N. Dolley, chairman of the Repub lican state central committee, has ap pointed J. (J. Uattord as assistant sec retary of the Republican state central committee. Mr. Dolley himself had decided to take personal charge of the speakers bureau. This is one of the most Im portant branches of the campaign work, and it will be handled this year with especial care. The plan is to have an exceptionally strong list of speakers. No "tryouts" will be sent out from state headquar ters. The list of speakers will not be nearly as long as some years. There have been years when from 50 to 100 speakers were kept on the road by the state committee. Many ot these were young speakers who wanted to get be fore the public and break into politics. They were assigned to the "school house" meetings. Chairman Dolley proposes this year to leave it to each county central com mittee to arrange Its own school house meetings. The state committee will only provide for the big county political meetings, and every meeting which the state committee arranges will be made a big political event. "We believe it is better policy to hit a hard lick when we hit." said Dolley. "rather than to try to put in a lot of small meetings which don't draw much of any crowd." ' , ' There -are no free railway passes for speakers this year. They have to pay their fare . like ordinary mortals. Bloodhounds Tree Another. Another "phony" criminal hunt was pulled off. by Sheriff Wilkerson today. Ben Johnson. Wilkerson's opponent for the nomination, as sisted in the circus, and was well pleased with the performancee given by the bloodhounds. The bait, a white man. with 35 minutes start, ran through the village of Auburndale, attempted to fool the pups by wading Ward's creek. Johnson followed the hounds, through the woode and fields and got his feet muddy, but greatly enjoyed the sport. The dogs treed the imitatoin criminal, in good shape, as they have done on every test. The next test scheduled, is a long run of 10 miles, with 6 hours start for the bait. The arrangement is to make a run from the county Jail to some sta tion 10 miles or more out on some ra'.lroad, the bait to choose his des tination, and leave the rest to the dogs. . . - - . 4 .
