Mob Gathers, Police Called, Cow Refuses to Budge. Boston. July 24. A cow balked in front of the city hall yesterday and the machinery of government as well as street stopped stock still while several thous and citizens offered advice as to how to make the animal move. The cow was being driven from "he r Brighton stock yards to a freight yard ' when it stopped. In school's time ap parently it never had t,een the city hall, i for it planted itself squarely in front i of the buildipg and stared, immovable despite the protests of the perspiring j driver. i Police reserves who were hurried out 't to break the jam of people tried to ; move the cow. They pulled and tug ged at a halter about its horns and ; gave up the job. j A man who said he was "from ihe country" tried cajolery. He said "come. moolie, come." Then he too, yanked at ; the rope. A well dressed woman ob jected to this cruelty, ' a young man laughed at her objection, the woman called on an officer to have him ar rested and the young man asked for the woman's arrest because her hat pins were too long. Meanwhile city hall employees aban doned business and returned the stare of tlie cow. Mayor Fitzgerald appear ed at a window and suggested: "Make her think you want her to stay, and then she'll move." It failed. Finally an electric ambulance was summoned and the cow, still staring vacantly was hoisted aboard bodily and forwarded to her destination by freight FIRE IN PRISON Second Incendiary Fire in Sing Sing Prison Today. Prisoners Make Demonstration While Guard Work. Ossining, N. T., July 24. Another fire at Sing Sing prison today gave the mutinous convicts a chance for more riotous demonstrations. The blaze started in the clothing shop and the prison fire brigade ex tinguished it, after a hard fight with out outside aid. It was the second fire in the prison buildings this week, notwithstanding the fact the guards had been doubled since $150,000 worth of property was de stroyed there two days ago. Although it was generally believed the fires were started by convicts, the warden has been unable to place the blame. When the fire broke out today whis tles were blown and every precaution was taken to guard against the secape of convicts. While the guards and the "trusties" were fighting the flames, more than a thousand prisoners locked in their cells, raised a chorus of yells that sounded high above the noise of the alarm. The men at work in the building were marched out in good or der and the blaze was extinguished. Warden Clancy attributed the recent disturbance among the convicts to an order for the transfer of some of them to the state prison at Auburn. Most of - the prisoners at Sing Sing come from New Tork city and object to being sent up state, where their friends will find it difficult to visit them. It was this element that led the mutiny yesterday which at first prom ised to develop into an organized at tempt at prison delivery. INDIAN TRIBE GONE. Went Visiting in Mexico and Cannot Come Back. Douglas, Ariz., July 2 4. United States government agents who return ed yesterday from the Kickapoo Indian reservation in Sonora reported that one tribe of the former residents of Oklahoma had been lost. Members of two remaining tribes reported that the missing group had gone into Coahuila to visit relatives and had been restrained from returning by authorities of that Mexican state. The stray Indians are said to be suf fering from want of food, ten having died of disease and starvation. Each, however, is due to receive $200 as a semi-annual allowance from the United States government, derived from their lands in the former Indian territory. FIFTY EAGER BOYS. Meet for Final Instruction Regarding Going Into Camp. At least sixty Topeka boys will be given a ten day outing at the old Stone Bridge farm, three miles south of Berryton, beginning next Monday. They will be taken from the Central T. M. C. A. building in autos at 1 o'clock on that day, a number of To peka business men having generously donated the use of their machines. There was never a more happy and excited bunch of kiddies 50 of them than were seated in a group this morning in the office of the Y. M. C. A.. They ranged in age from 10 to 15 or 16. It was difficult for them to refrain from expressing aloud their delight while De Witt Lee, the boys' secretary, was giving them final in structions relative to what to take along to the camp in the way of bed ding, camp utensils, etc. Time after time it was necessary to call for or der. In the course of the conference with the boys Mr. Lee said: "There's an other thing I want you to bring. What do you think it is?" "An electric fan," shouted out one little fellow. About the same time this question was asked by a small boy with big excited eyes: "How many fish is they in the creek?" When the kiddies were told that they would be conveyed to the camp in automobiles a shout of joy arose. Many of them have never ridden in a motor vehicle. The boys were asked to bring their own bedding, table ware, towels, etc. They were all given particular in structions to bring a Bible, tooth brush and a cake ef soap. The thing that is now worrying the, management of the association is that they may not be .able to take all the boys that are eager to experience their first taste of camp life. Several of the boys who expect to go to the camp were not able to atend the meet ing this morning and it is expected that a dozen or more youngsters will apply to go along between now and next Monday. If the good people of Topeka will send In their checks for four dollars it will be possible to ac commodate all. Four dollars will pay for a boy. ASSAILS V, Senator Says Precedent Creat ed May Disrupt Government. Says President's 3Iotives Pure, but Example Very Bad. Washington, July 24. Senator Works attacking the tariff bill today charged that President Wilson exceeded eonsti tional authority in aiding in framing the bill and "using his powerful influ ence by having it passed in the form approved by him and known to have his approval," The senator also assaiLs the Demo crat caucus which he declared forced a senator to "forego his own conscien tious convictions and judgment and vote with his party or come into dis favor and be branded as an apostate and betrayer of his party. "The president," said Senator Works, "commits himself beyond recall to a bill not yet introduced and without having heard the presentations of their views by the legislative representatives of the states where vital interests and important industries are to be effected by it. "Thus we have a bill agreed upon and marked for final passage, upon consideration of only a few men of the party concurred m by the president, acting with representati'es of this one party. This comes in part from the vicious doctrine that the president is leader of his party insteau of, or a well as, the president of the whole peo ple. The two are utterly inconsistent when it comes to the making of laws." Might Disrupt Government. Senator Works did not doubt that the president acted from the purest motives but feared that "this great power to mould legislation might fall into unworthy or treasonable hands and that revolution may follow and this beneficent government of ours be disrupted." "The time may come," he said, "when this great power in the executive gov ernment to rule and control congress, a power not given by law and wholly illegitimate, but established by the si lent and unauthorized acquiescence of the people and their lawful representa tives, may, bring the institutions of this republic into deadly peril and possible overthrow. "It makes the situation only more alarming that one of such high ideals and patriotic purposes should do any thing that can reasonably be construed to be usurpation of power or an in fringement of the constitution, that may sometime be appealed to as a precedent by one less conscientious and patriotic." , UNCLAIMED BEER. Deputy Sheriffs Find a Barrel Full in a Grove. Other things grow on the banks of a Kansas stream Leside cockle burrs iml poison ivy namely, beer bottles.

Miss Sawyer graduated from Wash lrn in 1912, and later took a course in the State Agricultural college, Man hattan. She is a member of the Sigma Delta Psi sorority and one of the pret tiest and most charming of the out of town girls who come to Topeka to visit.

His mother has long been active in club work of the state, and a leader in the "woman move ment" that has resulted in the en franchisement of Kansas women. The approaching marriage of Miss Sawyer and Mr. Monroe is the cul mination of one of the many college romances that have been "exposed" and "taken" in the "shadow of the pines" on beautiful Washburn campus. The exact date of the wedding has not been determined, but It will prob ably be some time in October. The young couple will make their home in Topeka. and will occupy apartments at 512 Harrison street.
