Army post in New Jersey wrote to the executive
committee and asked to be given
a place in line. Gen. Patrick replied that
owing 10 me tengcn or tne march and the

court last week to take charge of the prop
erty In Kansas of eight outside brewlnf
companies and of a real estate concern op

the court here yesterday.

bars, fixtures and mirrors. Not mucl
liquor has been taken. Most of the places

The receivers believe that the brewing
companies will take some action to proteel
their property now that the formal report
of the seizures has been filed.
The brewery attorneys say they are waiting
for definite authority on how to proceed.

Miss Loving Said to Have Written
Missive to a Girl Friend.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.. April 30Little
by little important facts in the Ixivlng-Estes
case are leaking out. The mosl
recent disclosure comes through an Indiscreet
letter written by Miss Elizabeth Loving
to a girl friend In this county lasl
week. The letter, it l? said, declares th?
I writer's amaeement at her father's act anc
fully exonerates Theodore Kstes.
Miss Loving, It Is said, defends the memory
of the victim to the extent of testifying
that he always treated her with courtesj
and consideration. It was because of a
real or fancied wrong to his daughter that
Judge Loving shot and killed young Kstes.
Slnee the tragedy Judge Loving and hii
family have lived In seclusion, and nc
statement from them or about them ha!
reached the outside world until this letter
which. If authentic, d'scloses the extreme
unhapplness of the entire family circle. Il
Is alleged that Miss Loving used the word
"crared" as descriptive of their mental
and nervous condition.
It is alleged by some persons In Nelsor
county that Judge Loving always opposed
social relations between his family and thai
of Sheriff Kstes. and that the mere fact ol
his daughter's having gone for a drive
with Theodore Estes was sufficient to excite
him greatly. Judge Loving Is not noted foi
an even temper, and It is said that hl?
daughter was the only person who coulc
manage him during his gusts of passion.
A Xelson county man familiar with al!
the social and political currents there hat
expressed the belief, that it would be impossible
to try the case at Lovlngston. Feeling
is said to be running high in that count}
and to be aggravated by family and political
antipathies. The case may be removed
to Charlottesville.
