Washington, July 8. Declar
ing that the moral sense oi Judge
Robert W. Archbald of the com
merce court had been deadened,
and that he'"has prostituted his
high office for personal profit,"
the house judiciary committee to
day formally demanded that he
be impeached for "high crimes
and misdemeanors."
The committee's supplement
ary report to the thirteen articles
of impeachment was full of bitter
denunciation of Archbald.
Referring to the judge's activi
ties in acquiring options on culm
piles, the report says : "The tes
timony shows that in orxder to in
fluence officers of the coal com
panies, which were subsidiary to
and'owned-by the railroad com
panies, Judge Archbald repeated
ly sought to influence the officials
of the railroads to enter into con
tracts with his associates for the
.fina'ncial benefit of himself and
his associates."
It is also said in the report that
there is no evidence of Archbald
paying money for any of his op
tions, but that they were received
for his influence on the bench.

nobleman of that name.
A trip to America, where the
white lights alienated her hus
band affections, were assigned
by her as the reason for divorce.
She said she did not know her
husband's whereabouts.
Just how far the countess' hus
band's affections were alienated
is shown in the records of the De
tention hospital, where the Aus
trian was taken last week partial
ly insane. He had been drinking
too much champagne.
As a party of ladies and gen
tlemen were climbing' to the top
of a high church tower one day
