Colonel L. It. Waters received the nri
poltiitnent of county counselor yesterday
from the county court now In session nt
Independence. The position Is one ot Im
portance mid It one of the host olllces
within the gift of the county court. Hlnco
tho organization of the court severnl bnl
lots have been taken by the Judge, but a
decision was not arrived nt until Just bo
fore the noon adjournment yesterday. The
appointment wns made by Judge- Stone and
Judge Smith, under a protest from Judge
J.atlmer, on a technicality. It wns stipu
lated by Judges Stone and Smith when
the balloting for counselor wns first com
menced that tho ballots would bo Informal
but Judge I.atlmer would not agree to the
Judge Smtlh favored II. N. IIss for coun
selor nnd Stone favored Waters. Smith
determined that If Stone would not vote for
ss ho would vote for Stone's candidate,
I,. II. WATKItS, COUNTY COUNSELOIt.
Colonel Waters. The combination, how
ever, did not work smoothly, for Judge
Latimer voted for Lawyer Kss with Smith.
Smith, It seems, did not care to effect a
combination with Latimer, nnd a lively
spat took place on the bench between the
Judges, with the result that Latimer was
left In the cold. The first ballot taken yes
terday showed two for II. X. Ess nnd one
for Waters. When the vote was announced
Judge Stone asked his colleagues if they
wished to reconsider. Latimer interposed
by stating that the vote was final and
elected Ess. Judge Stone stated that It
was only Informal nnd to elect a counselor
required an order of court. "X move that
L. II. Waters be appointed counselor," said
"J move that II. N. Ess be appointed
counselor." chimed In Latimer.
"Is there a second to cither of these mo
tions?" asked Judge Stone.
There was no response. The court took
a breathing spell by balloting on license in
spector. Eight ballots were tnken without
results. Colonel llogers received eight
btralght ballots while the others varied
nmong Henry Stukenberg, Roland I'roctor,
ltobert Adkins and Nathaniel Winters.
This was merely a side play, for the mat
ter ot counselor wns again tnken up. Judgo
Stone drew a typewritten order from his
pocket appointing L. II. Waters counselor,
lie passed it over to Judge Smith, who by
this time had decided that Stono would
not vote his way. Judge Smith signed the
order nnd Latimer fumed. He insisted on
having the vote on Mr. Ess recorded and
charged Judge Stone with putting up a
combination. "You have had that order
all tho time," exclaimed Latimer. "I want
that vote to go on record." Judge Stone
informed Latimer that what he wanted and
what ho would get were two different
things. Latimer grew excited, while Judgo
Stone put the motion to have tho vote for
Tilr Ess excluded from the court Journal.
Judge Smith voted with Stone and Judge
Latimer went down again. Judge Stone
then handed the clerk the typewritten or
der signed by himself and Judgo Smith.
Judge Latimer stated afterwards that ho
was opposed to Waters for tho reason that
ho understood that Waters hud views an
tagonistic to the new road law and the dis
position of the saloon license money. Ess
he claimed owned a farm In Eastern Jack
son county and would favor spending mon
ey In that direction Instead of in and about

County Itecorder O. II. Queal presented
tho court yesterday with a list of his
deputies. He wanted two deputies nnd one
clerk at Independence and seven deputies
and eight clerks at Kansas City. He was
examined closely as to the duties of tho
deputies, and the work of copying clerks.
Jlr, Queal said that the chief deputies had
to oversee matters. Judgo Stone suggested
that they shoulder a Job themselves and
oversee nt the same time. The result of
the questioning was that two deputies were
cut off, Mr. Queal did not expect this and
stated that he would like to revise his list.
He was permitted to do so. Mr. Queal
presented his bond, but the court refused
to approve the same until the bondsmen
appeared In person and pioved up their
Assessor Tetty then presented a request
for two deputies. No objection was made,
E. G, Knight nnd J. H. Kempler were ap
pointed. Scleral Hill Itejected.
After tho noon recess the matter of nl.
lowing uccounts was taken up. The mat
ter of allowing accounts was a new one
with the county Judges, with tho excep
tion of Judge Latimer, who was a member
of the old court. The system of allowing
any and all accounts presented to the
court received a severe shock yesterday
nnd, as a result, mnny accounts were lajd
over for Investigation.
Accounts were on llle which were six
months, past due, and represented every
thing from ehurges for keeping pauper
babies up to road contracts. The hap
hazard methpds of the former county court
came out prominently yesterday and
showed conclusively thut thousands of
dollars has been paid qut annually and
exorbitant prices charged by persons
who have had dealings with the county.
The 'llrst account presented to the court
proved to be an exorbitant charge from
a road overseer. It was a charge of $G
for a keg of spikes, and It made Judge
Stone take a long breath when he read It.
The Judge held the account up and read
It aloud to his colleagues.
"One hundred and twenty pounds of
spikes at 5 cents per pound." read the
Judge. "What are nails worth, anyhow'"
Some one Informed the Judge that 2
cents per pound would be a good price.
"I am opposed to allowing such a bill.''
said the presiding Judge," and "rejected"
was signed across the buck of it.
The next bill was from W. E. Hoyer, of
Lee's Summit, "for caring for and keep
ing one pauper baby from Tuesday night
October !, until Thursday night, October
13, ?l," read Judge Blone. 11a continued;
"Two trips for myself nnd wife to Kansas
rity, IM cents." The court grew Interested.
"Ilnllrond fare, S.tn," and Judge Stone
looked nt the other two Judges over hi
"Oentlctncn, thnt was it mighty expen
sive baby," remarked Judge Hlono, as he
looked askance nt Judges Smith nnd Lati
mer. "What wns done with Ilia baby?'1
nked Judgo Smith, III a serious ton",
"I move we disallow the cl.tlm," replied
Judge Stone, nnd It wns relegated for ful
The next bill taken tip was short nnd
to the paint. It read! "Please remit ft."
The bill offered no other explanation, ex
cept the request to remit Ihe money. This,
too, was relegated for further explanation

then taken up, but In nearly every caso

tho ghastly record continued until the

shown that being it Jail physician on a sat
nry the bill could not be nllowed,
The bill which shocked tho sensibilities
of Judge Stono most wns ono from Re
corder Owsley. It showed thnt Mr. Ows
ley's clciks, from December I, 1S!)I, to .Inn
unry 1. 1M.", worked thlrly-one days. The
amount charged up was $3 per day. Judge
Stone figured It out thut Owsley's clerks,
In order to get In the allotted time, must
have worked on the Sabbath. "This court
will not nllow extra compensation for work
ing on Sunday," remarked Judge Stone, ns
ho looked at tho bill with n critical rye.
"Thcro were four Sundnys In December,
nnd ?.1 per dny for each Sunday they were
employed will havo to be deducted. It's
wrong to work on Sunday, especially In the
recorder of voters' olllce." Tho balance of
the bill will be allowed.
F. W. Tuttle. n civil engineer, filed with
the court n petition asking to lie appointed

The act. sets forth thnt It Is within the
power of the county court to commission

Tho mutter was rcfeired to the county
counselor for nn opinion. Judge Stono nlso
nsked for the opinion Of the county coun
selor ns to the lnw relative to the ap
pointment of Janitors for public buildings,
lie understood thnt It wns hold to be tho

counselor n.s to whether or not the county
court could limit the number ot deputies
nkod for by the county marshal, circuit
clerk and sherllT. Iiidgo Stone said lie
wanted tho opinion for the consideration of
tho court nt to-dny's session, nnd, furth
ermore, would like to know If the court
had Jurisdiction over the number ot depu
ties nppolnted by tho prosecuting attor

.Itulgo Smith Misrepresented,
Judge Smith, of the county court, was
seen by a representative of the Joiirnnl
yesterday evening and nsked regarding the
assertion of the Star that ho had told a
reporter of that paper that his reason for
delaying his vote for Colonel Waters ns
county counselor wns In order that he
might pay off certain obligations In the
way of promises to friends of other candi
dates for tho position. In response to the
query the Judge said:
"I hardly think It necessary for me to
pay attention to such nn unreasonable
stnlement as appears In the Star, but for
fear pome of my friends might take silence
for ncqnliHcence, possibly It Is best for me
to enter a denial. I wish to state explic
itly that the assertion In tho Star Is with
out foundation. While tills, of course, may
bo unnecessary on my part, I do not caro
to let such a churgo pass unchallenged."

Thcro wns n general fight at No. 322
West Sixth street yesterday afternoon.
In which two women had their noses
split with n knife and another hail hot
head badly cut with n beer glass.
"Tommy" I'orterllold, a notorious
woman, who had lonpr hold a grudgo
against two other women In the house
named Eva and Daisy Whitfield, drew
a knife nnd threatened to split their
noses. She carried out tho threat nnd
then tho general light ensued. Beer
glasses were thrown nnd tho I'orter
lield woman was laid out with a big- rut
on tho head. Tin) arrival ot" the police
patrol wagon put an end to the melee.
The Fortorileld and the two Whitfield
women wero taken t the Central police
station and arter their wounds were
sewed up they wero locked up. While
being tnken down into tho Jail the l'or
terflcld woman tried to make her escape
by slipping through a side door, but she
was soon caught. In the Jnll sho shout
ed tauntingly to the Whltlleld women:
"I started out to split both your noses
and I sure done It, and I'm glad of It."
The emotions in women are largely in
fluenced by the ovaries, and the ovaries
are in turn decidedly influenced by the
emotions. Professor Skene, one of the
most distinguished authorities on Diseases
of Women, states that grief, fear, anger,
and even great joy are capable of arrest
"In order to maintain harmo
"nious action of the whole organization
"it is necessary that the ovaries shall
"exist in full development and functional
"activity. On the other hand, these
"organs, which are essential to the well
"being of the individual, must, when
"diseased, exercise a potent influence in
"deranging the brain and nervous system,"
These facts go to prove conclusively that
a very large proportion of the cases of in
sanity in women could have been pre
vented by careful treatment of diseased
ovaries. It is also vety probable that
many cases of insanity could be perfectly
cured by careful and systematic treatment
of the diseased ovaries,
Professor William A, IfemmenJ has
made the important discovery that the
sterilized extract of the ovaries of the
common pig contains the animal extract
required to specially nourislt the human
ovaries and testore them to normal
The use of Omriiit Is of great value in
the treatment of those nervous disturb,
ances dependant upon ovarian irritation.
It is to be recommended in
1. Congestion of the ovaries.
2. Chronic inflammation of the ovaries
3. Imperfect development of the ovaries.
v 4, Neuralgia of the oyaries.
5, Amenorrhea, caused by ovarian de
rangements. 6, Chlorosis,

TO RECOVER TAXES.
Tlio Suit Which the C'lly I Now righting
in Hie Stlprriile Court of
City Counselor Hostzelle left last night
for Jefferson t'liy, where he lll argue to
dey before the i-upremo court the case ot
William Couch against the city, wherein
Couch seeks to recover $3.KU.(lo, being taxes
paid by him and several fnirtl, s who as
signed their eh.inees of recovery to linn.
Tho taxes were pal. 1 during I ci-mber, lhSll,

Included In the . Uenslon ordinance that
R It Is outside th.' present city limits nnd
within the limits ;i extended.
The city coun.-il.ir In an el.iborato brief
narrows the case d.wn to th'' question as
to whether the p.iment ot the taxes was
through a mistake f fact or a mistake of
law, and contends that If It Is a mistake
of law there Is no i nance of iccovery. Ho
argues that the city did not compel the
payment of the t.ix.s hecunse tin- Ho.inoke

the taxes, voluui.ii.lv proceeded to mo oi-
ileo of the city tii-.i.-urer and secured the

collected because Ui"' wero paid through a
mistake of law. Tl passage of the exten
sion ordinance wa- a public net and the
taxpayers knew tli it their property was In
