HER HATCHET "RS. NATION WILL HEAD SECOND ATTACK. SALOON MEN ARE SCARED Hire Guards and Prepare to Repel Invasions by Their Enemy. Wichita, Kan., Jan. 22-Mrs. Carrie Nation and her colleagues in yester day's saloon smashing crusade were "arraigned in the city court today and waived preliminary hearing. Judge Kirke fixed their bail at $1,000 each, which was promptly given and the women were released. John Herrig, into whose saloon Mrs. Nation and her followers entered by windows they had smashed, was the complainant, and the specific charge was malicious destruction of property. Mrs. Nation made no notable demon. stration in court. When released she announced that she had a saloon smashing programme arranged for this evening, but a question came up rela tive to the terms of truce with the chief of police made yesterday, the chief holding that it was to extend 48 hours, while Mrs. Nation insisted that the limit was 24 hours. As no saloons have yet been attacked this evening it is thought that Mrs. Nation has given the chief's interpretation of the truce the benefit of the doubt. Her plan, she stated, was to have detachments of women attack saloons in different sections of the city at the same time. The saloon men are very uneasy and the more expensive places have em ployed guards or lookouts ,to warn the keepers of the approach of the enemy. The wife of one saloon keeper has placed herself in the front appartment of the saloon and threatens to repel Mrs. Nation in casq of an attack The young man who struck Police man Sutton yesterday was the son of Mrs. Evans, one of the smashers. His plea that he struck the officer under the misapprehension that the officer was about to strike his mother gave him immunity from punishment. He is a reporter on one of the local papers. AS A STARTER Mrs. Nation Holds Midnight Parade and Warns Her Foe. Wichita, Kan., Jan. 22-At 1 o'clock tonight Mrs. Nation terrorized the saloons again. She made an ad dress in the Salvation Army barracks, in which she :advocated organization of an army to wreck saloons. She provoked her hearers to a high pitch of excitement and then marched through the principal street, a dis tance of nine blocks, followed by 700 or 800 persons, some cheering and some jeering her. The word that she was on the streets went before her and every saloon light was snuffed out and every saloon door locked. Mrs. Nation started a hymn every time she passed a saloon and became demonstrative as she passed the ruins of the saloons she wrecked yesterday. She recognized several saloonmen on the sidewalks, and as she did, she said: "You are safe tonight, Mr. 3 Keeper of a murder-ship, but you will see me later." By the time she reached the Union station 1,000 per 'sons were in the crowd, but no vio Slence of any kind was attempted. She purchased a ticket for Newton, took a train and the saloons opened up - again. ,SHIFTS SCENE OF ACTION Petticoated Terror Swoops Down on Enterprise and Leaves Ruin Behind.

It is reported that she will move on to Abilene tomorrow and Abilene saloon men are preparing for her coming. About 8:80, as Mrs. Nation was lecturing on the streets of Enterprise, Mrs. Schilling, wife of the saloon keeper whose place of business was demolished, came up to here.

Washington, Jan. 22-Repetition of statements to the effect that the Wash ington authorities are satisfied that the British government had decided to accept the senate's amendments to the Hay-Pauncefote treaty is causing a deal of annoyance here, and it is said by the officials that circulation of these stories upon insufficient in or mation is calculated to prejudice the negotiations between the governments of the United States and Great Britain respecting the isthmian canal. The state department already has gone as far as it ever has on such oc casions toward officially contradicting the statements that it has any sort of information to warrant the conclusion that the British government had made up its mind what disposition to make 'of the amendments, or had al lowed any intimation of its purposes to reach Washington. Consequently it was with some relutance that the following official statement was eliot ed in answer to this report, said to have been cabled from !Washington to London: "The state department has received no communication from any quarter which woulld lead it to be lieve that the British government has decided to aoccept the amendments to the Hay-Pauncefote treaty." C CREEKS ARE ON WARPATH J THREATEN LIVES OF WHITE: AND INDIANS. AN APPEAL FOR TROOPS Civil Authorities Unable to Suppress Recalcitrants-Dawes Com mission in Danger. Muskogee, I.

United States Marshal Bennett sent 20 deputies and 10 Indian police to the scene, but they were met by so fierce a fusilade that they were com pelled to retire. One of the posse, named McNac, was captured by the Indians and it is feared that they will take his life. The result of this effort at suppression and because of the pres sure for protection brought by the whites, Marshal Bennett and Indian Agent Shoenfeldt forwarded a message to the Washington officials requesting that federal troops to the number of 500 be sent there. They stated that it would be sure death for the deputies and police to attempt to interfere again. Marshal Bennett and Agent Schoen feldt will, as soon as they hear from Washington, join the troops, invade the Indian camps and endeavor to put the leaders under arrest.

Prickett returned to Bill ings Wednesday form Helena, where he had introduced in the house of the state legislature by Representative Hedges, a bill, which, if it becomes a law, will free those who practice oste opathy in Montana from the attempts to punish them for "practicing med icine without a license" that have been made with frequency in different parts of the state in the last few years. Dr Prickett is president of the state association of osteopaths, and the bill was prepared not only at their sug gestion, but also on the request of leading physicians of the state. In many states similar bills have become laws, osteopathy having come to be looked upon as one of the necessary practices to relieve suffering mankind. By the terms df the bill the gover nor is to appoint a board of osteopathic examiners, composed of three quali fied osteopathists who must be gradu ates of some "legally authorized" school of osteopathy. The term of office of each is four years, except in the case of the first board, the mem bers of which are to serve, one for one year, one for two years ana one four years. It is made the duty of the board to examine applicants for certificates to practice osteopathy and to issue li censes to such as pass the examination prescribed. The bill makes it unlawful for any person to practice osteopathy without a license, except in the cases of those engaged the practice of the profession prior to the passage of the act, who hold diplomas from legally authorized schools where the course of study is twenty months, but the secretary of the board may issue a temporary cer tificate entitling a person to practice until such time as he can be regularly examined. The board is required to examine applicants for certificates in the branches of anatomy, physiology, ob stetrics and the theory of osteopathy. An important feature of the bill is that the decision of the board as to whether or not an applicant is quali fled to practice is final and there is no appeal from it as in the present law governing the examination of appli cants for a certificate to practice medi cine. It is specifically prescribed that a certificate to practice osteopathy shall not entitle the practitioner to pre scribe medicines or to perform major or operative surgery without first having obtained a license so to do from the state board of medical examiners. Successful applicants for certificates must file their licenses with the clerk and recorder of the county they prac tice in. Violations of the law by practicing without a license or obtain ing a license by fraudulent means is made a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of from $50 to $100, or not to exceed 90 days in the county jail. The bill provides further that a li cense may be revoked for misrepresen tation or fraud in procuring it or for gross immorality. Members of the board are to receive $5 a day for each day actually engaged in holding exam inations and actual expenses. In the final parargaph the bill de clares osteopathy is not the practice of medicine within the meaning of the present medical law.
