I .is:
Republican Candidate for
Probate Judge
Stands for
A Square Deal to the Lawyer,
His Client and the People
If nominated and elected, I desire to enter upon the duties
of Probate Judge unhampered and under no obligations to
anybody except the people.
Believeing I should not obligate myself, I wrote a letter
about April 12, 1916, to all the lawyers In Topeka, express
ing my views upon this subject, of which the following is
a copy:
Am yon mo doubt know. I am candidate for the Re
publican nomination for Probate Judire of Shawn County.
I realise that If I receive the nomination an am elected,
practically all the lawyers at this bar will practice before
me. as each Judge, and that to ak them to nign a statement
for publication recommendlnn: me. would be unfair to them,
their clients, and the public at large. It would tend to place
me under obligations which I desire to avoid.
Beeldes, the voters at large should be left free to make
their choice.
My personal feeling Is that I should not request the
lawyers to make a recommca datlon for publication In con
nection with my candidacy for this office, consequently I
am not asking them to sign a recommendation for me, al
though several prominent lawyers have voluntarily come
to me and offered to sign such a statement.
It Is my desire to keep myself In such an attitude as will
enable me, if elected, to transact the business of the Pro
bate Court with perfect fairness and Impartiality to the
lawyers and all persons having business In that court.
I will, however, very much appreciate your support,
and a kind word to your friends In my behalf. But, If for
any reason, you are unable to support me, and if I am
elected, it will make no difference whatever when come Into
this court. There will be no . enemies to punish nor any
friends to favor, but everybody will receive absolutely a
square deal.
Thanking you for any fa .ore you may extend me, and
with kindest regards, 1 beg to remain
Very truly yours,
This is an elective office. The Probate, Judge is the people's servant and should be at
iected by the people. I am willing to let them decide who they want to employ.
If you agree with my views, I will greatly appreciate your support for Probate Judge.

Even though she said she was de
serted at the altar by the alleged fath
er of her unborn child. It was neces
sary for Mabel Harris to file a cross
petition and fight the case to prevent
her husband, Harold Harris, from se
curing the divorce. The wife, only
18 years old now, was granted the di
vorce by Judge O. H. Whitcomb after
she had told her story to him today.
Harris first filed a petition for di
vorce, alleging general neglect of duty
on the partof his wife. According to
the testimony of the wife and her
relatives, Mrs. Harris never had any
opportunity to perform any wifely
duty for Harris.
Harris was a student at Washburn
college and the girl was a student at
the high school. Less than a year ago
they slipped away to Kansas City and
were married. According to the girl's
story Harris declined to ride home In
the same coach with her. She stated
that the last she saw of him was when
she left the train and saw him walking
up Fifth, street. She went to the
home of an aunt and two months later
gave birth to a baby.
"Did he come to the house when
the child was born?" asked the judge.
"He did not." Another witness said
Harris ventured into the alley back of
the house at one time.
"But," said D. H. Brannaman. attor
ney for the girl, "he did not call to
see her, he contributed nothing to her
support, he did nothing for the child.
He sent no flowers, not even a word of
sympathy for the wife."
Judge Whitcomb, accustomed as he
is to cases of all character, appeared
to be astonished.
The Child Is Dead.
"And is this child still living?" he
The child Is dead. It did not live
long but according to the testimony
Harris found it out only by hearsay.
"In the face of all these circum
stances," said Brannaman, "this man
had the nerve to come into court and
ask for a divorce from this little girl'
charging that she had failed In her
duty to him. If I were county attor
ney such a man would not get off with
merely a divorce. He fooled this little
girl, who came in from the country,
with promises to marry her. Then to
avoid prosecution by county officers
he hurried her away to Kansas City
to marry her. He thought it would
disgrace him to marry her here, so he
took her to Kansas City. He deserted
her. before they reached Topeka and
has allowed her to shift for herself
since, even during those hours when a
wife needs the kindness and sympathy
of her husband above everything else.
After all that; he asked the court to
relieve him of the burden of the girl
he had wronged."
Harris was in the courthouse dur
ing the hearing, but not in the court
room. The hearing was conducted
quietly, almost In whispers. Within
five minutes after the girl had told
her story she was granted a decree
divorcing her from the husband with
whom she had never lived.

Time for Calling Games Will
Be Put to a Tote.
Early Advocates Should All At
tend Tomorrow's Game.
AH fans who favor calling To
ptka's baseball games at 3 o'clock
should make It a point to attend
tomorrow's game. I'nlcss they
do so, they will probably have to
continue the consumption of their
national pastime at inconvenient
In order to try to get a more ac
curate line on the wishes of the To
peka baseball patrons and in order to
please the greatest number of them,
John Savage, owner of the local club,
announced today that he would put
the time of calling games played here
up to a vote of the fans who attend
tomorrow's game.
There has been quite a demand for
earlier games this season, and Savage
has stated that he would have the
games start at the time most conven
ient to the public. However, the an
nouncement that games would begin
earlier brought a protest from those
who claim that they cannot get away
earlier in the afterncfon than 3:15 or
Early Advantages.
On the other hand, those favoring
3 o'clock games have continued to
clamor for them, and Savage says that
the only way he can settle the affair
is to put it up to a vote of those who
attend and then satisfy the wishes of
the majority.
Among those who want earlier games
are a great many who work at night
and who claim that games called at
3:30 are not over in time for them to
get home to supper and get to their
work at the required hour. Also, a
great many claim that late games
make late evening meals and conse
quently cause more or less domestic
Throughout the whole country there
has been a demand for earlier and
faster games this season, and a num
ber of clubs in the bigger leagues re
now starting their games at 3 o'clock.
Every Fan Can Vote.
Every fan who attends tomorrow's
game between the Savages and Wolves
will be given a voting slip upon which
will be marked the figures 3, 3:15 and
3:30. Those who receive the slips will
vote for the hours most convenient to
them and will deposit their votes In
boxes that will be provided for the
purpose. After the game, the votes
will be counted and the time desired
by the greatest number will be the time
all games will begin upon the team's
return home June 2.
The voting ballots will be given out
as the patrons enter the ball park, and
no one will be given a ballot after he
has passed through. This will be done
to prevent one person voting more
than once.
All who are In favor of earlier
games are urged to go out tomorrow
and vote.
