JACKSON DENIES IT.
Attorney General Opposed to Law
Making Liquor Selling a Felony.
Attorney General F. S. Jackson today
stated that he is opposed to the enact
ment of any law making liquor selling
a felony, punishable by a term in the
"The report that I would ask the leg
islature to enact such a law." said Mr.
Jackson, "is entirely erroneous. I am
not in favor of such a law, and con
sider that it would be a great mistake
to have such a law. Such a law would
work its own destruction. It would
make things drier in the dry counties,
and wetter in the wet counties. In the
dry counties it might be that a man
would refrain from going into the
liquor business if he knew that the
penalty was the penitentiary, but in
the wet counties, it would be impossi
ble to ever convict anybody of selling
liquor if the penalty was a penitentiary
sentence, and the liquor sellers would
simply take advantage of that fact.
"It is hard enough as it is to convict
people in wet counties when the only
penal- is a fine and jail sentence.
"It has been said that the anti-liquor
laws were well enforced in Indian Ter
ritory because of the fact that it was
equivalent to a felony to sell liquor
there. I do not believe that it was the
severe penalty which brought about the
strict enforcement of the law there, if
dt was strictly enforced. I think it
was the vigilance of the United States
officers who were constantly on the
watch for liquor selling. I am inclined
to doubt whether the liquor laws were
any better enforced in Oklahoma than
they are in most places in Kansas.
"I am inclined to favor a law provid
ing for the creating of a special court
in some of the larger counties of. the
state for the special purpose of hand
ling injunctions against nuisances of
all kinds, and possibly to handle gen
eral criminal busness as well. I am
not advocating such a court for all the
counties, but only for those above a cer
tain population. Some of these have
separate courts already. I think that
he judges of these special courts
should be appointed by the governor,
so that the responsibility for the en
forcement of the law will rest direct
with the chief executive. With such an
arrangement the enforcement of the
law would be a comparatively easy
matter, provided the governor was in
lavor of such a policy."
COOPER CASE IS OUT
Breach of Promise Suit Settled Out of
The case of Virginia Bower vs. John
G. Cooper, for $25,000 damages for a
hreech of promise, has been dismissed
in the district court. No amount
is named in the stipulation but Mr.
Cooper says the plaintiff gets nothing,
tie simply agreeing to pay the costs of
the action. Miss Bower secured a
Judgment In the trial of the case for
$4,000 but the supreme court reversed
it and sent it back for retrial.
Firm Flesh Versus Fat
Fat women who are contemplating a new
gown in the mode will have to contemplate
a reduction of their flesh before they visit
Fortunately this is nothing like the hard
labor it was when one had nothing but
exercising or dieting to get results with.
Nowadays a short course of the Marmola
Prescription Tablets should bring any wo
man, however fat. to the proportions nec
essary for her to wear a. Directoire gown.
Let her take a Marmola Tablet (made in
accordance with the famous prescription
and. therefore, harmless) after each meal
and at bedtime and she should very soon
be losing a pound a day. This result,
accomplished without disturbing one's ta
ble customs, forming wrinkles or dis
tressing the stomach, astonishes every
bddv. Even one large case, costing only 75
cents at anv drusreist's. or the same
amount direct bv mall from the Marmola
company. Detroit, Mich., gives positive
results. This constitutes the acme of

JOHN D. ROCKEFELLER, WHO TOLD ON THE WITNESS STAND OF THE GROWTH OF
On the witness stand in a federal inquiry in New York John D. Rockefeller told the amazing history of the
growth of the Standard Oil company. The oil king attributed the success of the enterprise to the superior business
capacity of himself and his associates and the fact that they had been able to borrow large sums of money at low
rates because they early established an excellent credit. He said they started In 1862 with a capital of between $2,000
BAD FOR LAMPHERE.
State Scores a Big Victory in the In
Laporte, Ind., Nov. 25. The state
scored a big victory in the Lamp
here trial when Judge Ritcher, after
exhaustive arguments by both sides,
announced he would instruct the jury
that if the evidence showed that
Lamphere set fire to the Gunness
house, even of the fire did not cause
the death of any of the persons
therein, the jury must find him guilty
of arson. The defense fought hard
to have this paragraph of the in
structions left out.
The state scored another victory
when it secured the incorporation in
the instructions of a paragraph by
which if the jury finds that any one
of the four persons in the house lost
his or her life as a result of the fire
and that Lamphere set that fire then
it must find Lamphere guilty of mur
der or manslaughter.
Counsel M. R. Sutherland, for the
state, opened the arguments this
morning. Attorneys Weir and Worden,
for the defense, followed.
The closing plea this afternoon was
made by State's Attorney Smith.
BALM FOR AFFECTION.
Miss Viola Johnson Sues John Wente
of Seneca for $20,000.
Miss Viola Johnson of Kansas City,
Mo., today filed suit in the United
States circuit court at Topeka for
$20,000 damages against John Wente
of Seneca, Kan., alleging breach of
promise on the part of the defend
ant to marry the plaintiff in this case.
The petition states that Wente, in
October, 1905. became engaged to
Viola Johnson, the plaintiff, and that
last September Wente married Miss
Ellen Mohan, thereby shattering the
connubial hopes of this plaintiff and
violating his contract made and en
tered into with her.
Seneca. Nov. 25. John Wente is a
prominent young business man of
this place, dealing in horses and con
ducting a livery stable. Viola John
eon, the plaintiff in the damage suit,
formerly resided here with her par
ents on a farm near the town. Mrs.
Wente, nee Mohan, lived in Weston.
Leavenworth county, at the time of
her marriage to Wente last Septem

Dolman & Son Start the Construction
Samuel L. Dolman & Son. the con
tractors who have the contract for
the construction of the levees along
if Y - . ,-.ft 'try
aw mm. .
the north , bank of the Kaw river,
started to work this morning. A
small gang is working today near the
mouth of Soldier creek. Mr. Dolman
says that other men will be put to
work as soon as he can get ready for
them and can get the men. Mr. Dol
man received his contract only last
Saturday, and the fact that he is start
ing work so soon augurs well for the
early completion of the work.
People of East Side Object to the
The new Biddle creek spillway got in
its work last night for the first time
under flood conditions and the people
of the East side are in a perturbed
state of mind today. The heavy rain
last night brought Biddle creek up and
the new spillway did its part by carry
ing the overflow to Locust street as it
was intended it should. But' Locust
street is not paved as it is Intended It
shall be, and so the street this morn
ing resembled a lagoon or -a street
scene in Venice.
' At least two different persons in bug
gies had a hard time in fording the
street, one man having to unhitch his
horse before he could get out of the
When Locust street is paved and the
manholes installed at Sixth avenue
where the car tracks have been raised
as a barrier the water from the over
flow via the spillway will quickly flow
down from the street.
This improvement in Parkdale looks
pretty bad right now and it will con
tinue to bear that appearance until the
paving is laid on Locust street.

Saving the Buffalo in Canada.
The Canadian government is engaged
in what promises to be a successful ef
fort to increase the buffalo population
of the country. A vear aeo a herd of
J 400 was rounded up and corralled near
from Montana. They wintered well
and the loss by death is less than 1
per cent for the year. Arrangements
have been made to add a herd of 300 this
season, and the entire number is nearly
secured. The government is calling for
tenders for a wire fence around this
preserve, which will be over 70 miles
long, and will cost approximately $80,
000. The preserve is so arranged that
for 80 miles the railroad runs along one
side, giving passengers a chance to see
the herd. This is now the largest herd
of buffaloes in the world. With the ar
rival of the other herd it will be
doubled, and before the end of the year
is expected to number close upon 1,000
head, with a net increase of fully 25 per
cent annually. Utica Press.
. Air and Water "Cures."
It is a remarkable fact that, as with
various natural so-called "mineral wa
ters," so with various "airs" which
people find beneficial, no one has yet
clearly and decisively shown, in the
first place, whether they exert any
chemical effect of a special kind on the
people who seem to benefit by drinking
the one or breathing the other; still
less has any one shown what is the
particular chemical ingredient of the
air or of the water of any given resort
which exerts the beneficial effect at
tributed in that air or that water. Sir
E. Ray Lankster in London Telegraph.
Arrested for Kansas Robbery.
Muskogee, Okla., Nov. 25. Chief of
Police Powell of Tahlequah, Okla., last
night arrested "Buck" Davis, who is
charged with complicity in the robbery
of a bank at Tyro, Kan., six months
ago of $2,350. Henry Starr and Kid
Wilson, his alleged accomplices, are
ptill at large.
The unusually heavy demand for fine Pianos within the lncf sn
days, has necessitated buying two more car loads of the various
Pianos that we represent for the state.
This stock is the largest ever exhibited in our Topeka warerooms,
and the prices are so low and terms so easy, that anyone can own a
Piano without much effort.
