ms COURT BAN ON MRS. FERGUSON Lawyer Would Enjoin Candi date for Governor on Ground of Sex. By the Associated Press. AUSTIN, Tex.. September 11.—An injunction suit to prevent Mrs. Miriam A. Ferguson from becoming Governor of Texas was filed liere yes terday in the fifty-third district court by Uhartps M. Dickson of San Antonio. The suit is directed against the county judge, the county clerk and the sheriff of every’ county in Texas and seeks to prevent Mrs. Ferguson's name going on the ballot. Mr. Dickson’s petition, which was filed by I. \V. Stephens, Fort Worth attorney, for Dickson, alleges that James K. Ferguson, who is debarred from holding office, is the real candi date in the name of his wife, and that if her name is not kept off the ballot Ferguson will be elected governor in the name of his wife, thereby circum venting the judgment of impeach ment and disqualification against Ferguson. t Ites IS4O Statute. A not It • r proposition presented by the petition is that at common law. which was adopted in Texas in IMit. a woman, especially a married wom an. was ineligible to hold any execu tive or judicial office and that no such right has been conferred by statue or the Constitution. The Con stitution. by use of the masculine gender, it is contended, and by mak ing the governor commander-in < Itiof of the military forces, excludes a woman from holding office of gov ernor. as the governor is a member of the. militia, which is declared to be composed of "ablebodied male citi zens" above a certain age. Dickson is a law partner of Mar shall Hicks, who was chairman of the Democratic State convention at Waco and chairman of the Texas delegation to the national Democratic convention. Mr. Dickson said the suit could not in any way inure to Hie benefit of Judge Felix D. Robert - •-on. the defeated candidate, and that he had been opposed to both Judge Robertson and the Ku Klux Klan CANDIDATE UN WORRIED. “Used to Injunctions,” Is Mrs. Ferguson’s Come-Back. Fj rh* Associated Pros?. TKMPLK, Tex.. September 11—De claring "we are so used to injunctions that I guess one more won’t mak« any difference." Mrs. Miriam A. Fer guson ot Temple, Democratic nominee for governor, said when she was shown a dispatch last night from Austin saying that an injunction suit to keep her name off the ballot in the general election had been filed in Austin by Charles M. Dickson of San Antonio. Hoth Mrs. Ferguson and her hus band and campaign manager, former Cov. James K. Kerguson, declined to make any further statement regard ing the action. CATHOLICS CHARGE r AFFRONT BY POLICE Detroit Chief Begins Probe of Al leged Insuit Sponsored by Church Foes. DUS MOINES. lowa. September 11 —Threatening removal or suspension of a number of policemen alleged to have been connected with a reported affront to Catholics here in attend ance at the National Conference of Catholic Charities, Mayor Carl Car ver yesterday began consideration of a report by Chief of Police Cavender on the investigation of the manner in which two photographers Tuesday night obtained a photograph to be used, it was said, as anti-Catholic propaganda. The mayor, after a conference with members of the Catholic Charities executive committee and with heads of the police department, announced that further inquiry would be neces sary before his action could be deter mined. Picture Displayed. At the conference was displayed a copy- ol a Ku Klux Klan paper issued yesterday, which carried a photo graph similar to the one reported to have been obtained Tuesday night at the Coliseum, where the charities conference is under way. The photo graph showed a Holy Name Society banner, similar to those used in a parade Sunday, flying above an Amer ican flag. The Catholic Charities executive committee alleged that two men en tered the Caliseum Tuesday night, placed the Holy- Namee banner above an American flag on a flag pole and photographed it in that position, and i hat two policemen escorted them to the hall from police headquarters on instructions from Night Capt. Devies. ,Capt. Devies has denied "this state ment. Affidavits made by all officers concerned were said to disagree as to the part played in the affair by ihe policemen, chief of Police Cav ender characterized the affair as "a disgraceful act” in a statement issued after his conference with the mayor.

BY WIND AND COLOj | District Team at Camp Perry Finds 20-Mile Breeze Is Bad Incumbrance. Special Ylispatch to The Star. CAMP PERRY. Ohio. September 11.— Overcoated guardsmen of the District of Columbia were introduced today to the difficulties of getting on the targets at 1,000 yards in ttic small arms firing ■ school to the accompaniment of a 20-mile wind and frosty- weather. While many of the first shots plunged wildly into Lake Erie, the Washington j team steadied down quickly, and turned j in some creditable scores by the end j of the day. Corpl. Wrenn of Company C, 121st Engineers, was high man at the long range with a total of 46 out i of a possible 50. Sergt. Andrus, Company D; Corpl. j Milvvit. Company A, and Capt. Morgan, i Headquarters Company. were next with a 44 each. The first practice in | rapid fire was held this morning at 200 \ and COO yards, all the men using the j new grapevine sling by which this! school teaches its instructors to steady ] the rifle in the sitting position at 200 j yards and the prone position at \3OO j i yards rapid lire. William Campbell, the j j attached civilian competitor, led the < j Washington group with 48 out of a pos- j sible .">0 at 200 yards, and Corpl. Milvvit j I with a 49 at CCO yards. When the group came to try for , j records at th* standing offhand range ( of 200 yards a gale from Hudson Bay j I swayed the rifles and riflemen up and | j down the targets, so that it developed i into a snap-shooting affair rather i than serious work for bull's-eyes. Defense day will be observed by I this command tomorrow, when all or- | ganizattons. including the District of | Columbia team, will be paraded and , reviewed by Col. Newton D. Baker, former Secretary of War. and prob ably by Senator Smith V,’. Brookhart. The local men have their red. white and blue Defense day buttons all issued and ready for wear when they take their places in the alphabetical line-up for parade with the National j Guard contingents from all the States | jof the Union. Following the parade | j the regulars, guardsmen and civilians | j will form three sides of a hollow i J square for special patriotic exercises ] i at the flagpole. Col.
