A Bad Mas rails to Keeapo Paalahasoat
by Hafceae Corpaa.
Yesterday afternoon, on peUtioa of Thomas
Boyum through a writ of habeee corpaa. Judge
Langiey in tbj superior court was asked to re
laeee Patrick Burke, who has been confined la
tbe county Jail on the charge of petit larceny
since December 19 ot last year. Tha judge
denied tbe petition and remanded tha prieoner
to the custody of the sheriff of King county,
end Burke will be compelled to remain In Jail
until six months have expired or ha can give a
good and sufficient bond in tha cum of 9200.
Melvin G. Wins lock, deputy prosecuting attor
ney. represented the state, and W. B. Tyler and
Ph.lip White represented the petitlonar.
On December 19, 1892, Patrick Burke pleaded
guilty to the charge of petit larceny, wsa fined
9zb and coats, and required to enter into a bond
of 93)0 to insure bis good behavior, and In de
fault to suffer imprisonment ia the county
Jail for elx months.
On behalf of their elient, tha defendent's
counsel contended that tbe law allowing thie
was unconstitutional, that tha fine aad impris
onment, la default of the good behavior bond,
made two puuishmente for tbe same offense,
end that the law as applied ia this case was al
together unreasonable and excessive.
Mr. Winstock, on behalf of tbe state, traced
the objects and purposes of the famous writ of
habeas corpus and the creation of the courts of
this commonwealth, defined their powers, and
submitted that the legislature had reeled this
power in the courts for the purpoee of prevent
ing the future commission of crime. He also
explained the difference between a double
jeopardy for the same offsnse aad diflfcreat parts
of the same sentence. The state oontended
also that tbe burden of showing any change la
the sentence was upon the defendant, as tbe re
turn of the sheriff on Its face was proper aad
Judge Langley's charge was clear and ex
plicit He declared the act constitutional;
that the petitioner or defendant had been com
mitted regularly and legally, and that he would
neither pronounce upon the wisdom or ability
of tbe legislature or the clemency or modera
tion of the Judge who Inflicted the esntence,
but ia view ot the law, aad bsslag his judgment
upon what wee before him, be felt compelled to
deny the petition, and an order waa signed re
manding the prisoner back to tbe oouaty jail to
serve out his sentence.
This is the first time that the question has
been decided in the superior court of this
county and its sffect will tend to make chronic
offenders have a wholesome reepect for the ad
ministration of justice in Seattle.
She Claims That He Has Defraaded
Her of Valuable Baal Bstate.
Tbe close relations between connubial felicity
and community property, with variations as to
which party holds title, are illustrated in a suit
brought yesterday in the superior court by
Mary Steele to set aaide conveyances of real es
tate executed by her to her husband David H.
Mra. Steele's storv, aa Mt forth In tha com
plaint, is eutatantially M follows: She claim*
to bar* owned on July 6. 1892, one-fourth of
loto 1 and 2, of block 90, in D. 8. Maynard's p'.at,
consisting of property 120 feet deep, vitb a
frontage ol 90 feet on Yesler avenue; alao all of
lots, block 20, in A. A. I*enny'a addition* and
that tbe value or thla property waa 920,000. Be
aides thla, aba ssys that she aim owued 922,000
worth of real eaiate In Butte, Mont, and that
the property In both place* ia community.
Ou July 5, while raiding in thla city, aha
claima that her husband came on to aae her,
and represented that ha and hie two partner*
owned a valuable mine near Butt* City; that If
abe would give him a deed to her in tare* tin the
property he could control 9?5,000 to sink the
mine; that aa soon as tbe mine had been sunk
to a depth ol thirty-iour feet be waa to receive
♦20,000 in cash, which amouut ha would Imme
diately send to her to be loaned out at intereat
here; then they would all go to the World's fair.
Mow Mra. Steele claima that abe ia unakilled in
tbe law, and believiug he; husband and relying
upon hia representations, abe deeded to her
husband all ber Intereat in tha property here
aud Montana without receiving any consldera
tlon for the tranafer. Dla representations are
declared to be wholly false, and to have been
made to Mrs. Steele for tbe purpoee of deceiving
her and getting possesion of her property. To
leave no doubt that this waa his intention. It la
averred that aa soon as he obtained tbe deeda be
abused and 111-treated her, and threatened to
shoot and kill ber, adding that he bad her now
just where he wanted her; that he would eell
all of ber property and that aha ahould not get a
cent, lie was generous enough, however, it ia
claimed, to agree to allow ber a monthly allow
ance of 940 in place of the 9122 which aha had
received from rent*. Mr*. Steele states that ahe
is 52 years of age; that she has no means of sup
port, and beg* that the deeda executed bv her to
her husband be set aside.

to Accapt Cat Kata Tickata.
Chas. K. Monroa vs. tha Northarn Pacific Rail
way Company, a case involving tha rigbta of a
purchaser of a uon-tranafarabla ticket, waa de
cided by a Jury in Judge Oaborn'a court In favor
of the railway company yoaterday.
Monroa claimed that In October, 15.91, he
bought a ticket in Spokane, duly laauad by the
company, which entitled bim to a paaaage
from that city to Tacoma, but that ha waa
wrougfully aud violently put off tha train at
Pro'aer, whereby ha was bruised and wounded,
suffered iu his bruinea* interests and reputation,
and wa* subjected to grave lndignltle*, all of
which injured him, ha said, to thaeztantof
The company's answer to tbls waa that Mon
roe offered a ticket which was not sold to him
by any authorised agent of the company, bill by
a "scalper" or ticket broker, and which by ita
very terms was non-tranaferable, but waa lia
ble to be taken tip by the conductor if preaented
by any other psreou than the oue whose name
was signed to it; and it waa expreesed on the
ticket that in auch esse the person presenting it
would he charged full fare.
The compauy also asserted thst as tha train
waa approachiug Proaser Monroe offered this
ticket to the conductor and that it was taken up
by him aud tbe full fare demauded of bim. It
admitted thst he put off wben he re.used
to pay. but denied tbnt any uarea«onab'e or ex
cessive violence was used. The jury took this
view of the case, snd brought iu a verdict lor
the company.

Harry King Haa tha Matter of TaUag
Her Voder Advisement.
The report circulated yeeterday to tho effect
that pretty Martha Conradt, of San Francisco,
and Harry King, of Seattle, would be married
immediately seems to have been tha creation of
a vivid imagination.
"1 cannot give you any decided answer," said
Harry King last evening in response to an in
quiry as to tbe report that all was arranged
satisfactorily and the marriage would take placo
"There Is no reason for secrecy in this matter
and if Miss Conrsdt and myself sro married duo
notice will be given. The report in the after
noon paper given a* coming from Mr. Wiudal I
know nothing of aud he has talked on hla own
At this point Mra. King joined in the conver
sation aud said that ao far aa Mr. Coaradt hav
ing given bis consent all wa* summed up in hia
interview the uigf.t of his arrivsl. She thought
that her reistiou to llarry King should give her
some ssy in the matter, snd she should certainly
not agree to the marriage until avarytbtug was
W hen asked if Miss Conradt wa* at tha bousa
Mrs. king inclined ber bead and said ths young
lady could be seeu if ahe so desired. This
courtesy was so unexpected and seldom met
with by the reporter that ha thought ha must
have beard incorrectly aud was about to ask an
other question when Mra. King called in tha
young aly in question and presented her.
In San Francisco Miaa Conradt wa* couaidered
a charming young aiy, aud report haa not
bel:ed her personal appearance in the leaat She
has aparkllng dark eyes, a clear complexion
and dresae* modestly iu black. A* a conversa
tions.lst the young lady would ba considered
more than ordinary.
"I do not enjoy having my name in the papers
so she »aid, "but I suppose it must be
endured. I caunot give any information re
garding my proposed marriage with Mr. Kiug.
That ii a question time alone can settle."
Mr. Windai who, according to general opin
ion, would have liked to marry Mies Conradt,
but, according to his own statement, has only a
fatherly reijaru for bur. spent yesterday look.ng
over tha city. He was talkat.ve, and related

R. H. Calligan the Next Super
intendent of Water Works.
Unaalasoas Paterae la atloa of the Board
of Psblie Works—Fablte later
eats Demand a Change.
Today W. E. Wilton la auperintendent of the
water worka; tomorrow it is mora than prob
able R. H. Call 1 gan will be. Yeaterday Mr. Cat*
llgan and Mr. J. M. Colman spent some time at
the pumping station at Lake Washington, as
they have done for many days, and in tbe after
noon they were joined by Commiasiooer Yaa
Mr. Wilaon will be aaked this morning to ten
der bis reaignation, to be handed in at the meet
ing of the board of publie worka in the after*
doon, and if he refuae, the office will be de
clared vacant and Robert H. Cat llgan elected to
take his place.
The immediate causa is not made known. Tbe
members of the board give Mr. Wilson credit for
industry and for a deal re to do his beat, but they
bare come to the conciuaion that the beat in
tereata of tbe dty require a change of manage
ment Tbe members am unanimously of the
opinion that as they are under bonds they can
not be controlled by merely political considera
tions. Tbere Is no imputation whatever upon
Mr. Wilson's integrity; but tbe board has ar
rived at tbe opinion that his previous experi
ence was not of such a character aa to specially
fit him for the office of superintendent of water
Other members of tbe government who have
been consulted on the subject have come to the
same conclusion and the board feels aatlafied
that neither the executive nor legislative body
will fail to endorse its action.
At one time Alderman Ingrain was talked of
for tbe position, but he was not a candidate.
Mr. Ceillgan Is tbe member of tbe bouae of
delegatea from the Fourth ward. He has been
a member of tbe city council eeveral times, and
waa at one time street commiaaioner. He wes
also a member of tbe freeholders' convention
which drafted the present city charter. He has
been a reeident of tbe Sound for many years,
most of which were spent in Seattle. He Is the
owner of considerable property, and is a me
chanical engineer of considerable experience.
It was for this reason that be waa Invited to ac
company Mr. Colman in his examination of the
Tbe trouble baa been brewing some time, and
oulminated upon the diacovery tbat Mr. Wilaon
had purchased without the knowledge or au
thority of- the board about 917,000 worth of pipe
beyond the quantity contracted for.
In Auguat last an ordinance waa pasaed by the
city council authorising a contract between the
city and the Northwestern Supply Company, of
Portland, for the purchase of 1,000 tone of water
pipe at $35.50 per ton, the company repreaeuting
that the price of the pipe waa 942 usually, but
they had a quantity on band they would sell at
the reduoed price. The contract called for the
purchase of 1,000 tons only, but required tbe
company, if more were ordered, to aupply It at
the aame price.
That quantity waa taken at a coat of 935,500, of
which 916,000 waa paid, and it waa assumed that
aa there waa 930,000 in tbe water fund, the par
meat of the balance of 919,500 would atlll leave
a margin. Now the diacovery la made tbat Wil
aon ordered 476 tons more at an additional coot
of 916,898. Tbe resnlt ia that the fund will be
overdrawn by 96,396, whfeh moat be borrowed
from another fund.
It was resolved, as there were seven car loads
lying at the depot not to aecept them, but later
still another discovery was made, namely, tbat
Wilson bad taken aome 10-inch pipe from nearly
all, if not all, of the cars, so that tbe entire con
signment had been "accepted."
The board very politely exoneratee Mr. Wilson
from any other charge than bad Judgment, but
firmly requeeta bis resignation.
Protest of the Master Plumbers
Against Abolishing It.
The Seattle Master Plumbers' Association, by
I. & McLellan and Frank Gordon, have eent in a
memorial to tbe board of aldermen against

demand for.
But there are a good many people who
are not able to buy lots in Kenton Addi

are not content to sro way outside of town
to get a home within their means and
spend from half an hour to an hour get
ting in and out and probably have the
annoyance of a transfer in the bargain.
Ordinarily the only property persons
with a small amount of money can buy is
