to call such special elections when he
saw fit nnd that In this case there was
no special need for hurrying. After
some discussion the ordinance was re

A report from the ieclal grand Jury was
looked for yesterday, nnd It la known that
that body expected to make one returning
a large batch of Indictments, but the Ill
ness ot one of the Jurors and n necessary
change delayed the report, so that It may
not be made for a day or two yet. Juror
C. C. Chiles, of Independence, was taken
sick yesterday morning and was excused
from further service by Judge Wofford,
who appointed Ocorgo F. Shaw, a real es
tate dealer of Independence, In his place.
Prosecutor Neal said, after the grand Jury
had adjourned, that this change In the Jury
was the reason for no report being made.

will be ontlcd ns soon to-day as tho case
on trial Is completed, Last evening both
sides nnnoiinced themselves rendy for
trial. The stutc will be represented by
Prosecutor Jamison ulul his assistant,
Among the cases disposed of yester
day was that against tillibs (!, Whit
man, who assaulted Principal Williams,
of the Chnce school, u Vear ago.
The cases against "Itlshop" McNnmara
wcro dismissed, nnd the murder cases
against Jerry Pate nnd his companions
When the cases ngalnst Olbbs (', Wlllt

Williams, ot the Chnce school, on Feb
ruary II, IMll, nnd also with disturbing
the school, were called the attorneys rnr
the defendant made qulto an effort lo
secure a continuance until the next
term. Prosecuting Attorney Jamison
made a strong objection lo nny further
delay and the court Indicated that the
reasons for asking the delay were not
good. It was agreed lo take up tho
case again at 2 o'clock, and when It was
called at that time tho uttorneys an
nounced that the defendant desired In
enter it plea of guilty to common ns
stiiilt, nnd they nsked the court to nc
cept that plea, which was done.
Attorney Latshnw, for the defense,
pleaded for leniency, slating that tho
defendant hnd live motherless children
to provide for nnd that the costs already
were over $200. Prosecuting Attorney
Jamison called tho attention of the court
to tho fact that, while ho was willing
to show nil leniency possible, he could

Judge Uroaddus fined Whltmnn $50
and three months In jail. In case he
was able to pay the fluu and costs at

fifty witnesses from the city out lo tho

Judge Hroaddus said yesterday that tho
Clay county Jail was quite unlit for hab
itation. Last evening Whltmnn was In
charge of Sheriff Hynicr, but snld he
would settle up everything to-dny. Ow
ing to tho condition of the jail he was
guarded at the residence of tho sheriff
The cases against Jerry Pate and his
companions in tho Fifth ward riot a
year ago were called, and, by agreement
of nil the uttorneys, continued for
tho term. Prosecutor Jamison nsked for
the continuance, and In doing so said
such a step was made necessary by
reason of the recent changes in tho
Tho cases against "Hlshop" J V. Mc
Namara, his nephew and agent, were nil
dismissed by Prosecutor Jamison, who
sold he was Impelled to take thnt step
by reason of the fad that the strongest
case against the defendant had been
tried and a conviction not secured, and
It would 1)0 practically Impossible to
now get a conviction at a later date on
a weaker case. As the cases against all
were based on the same act, he would
dismiss tho entire number.
The bishop was In the room nt the
time and heard the announcement with
out a change of countenance, and soon
after left the building and went to the
house of a friend.
The cases against Hankers John Hold
and George W. Toulmlu. of the defunct
trust companies, were all dismissed, as
had been expected since the supremo
court upheld the decision of Judge
Hroaddus that the law did not Include
trust companies under the restrictions
placed around banks.
The case against Charles Schaeffer,
who was charged with carrying con
cealed weapons, was continued owing
to the sickness of a couple of important
witnesses, nnd that ngalnst C. J. Jacobs,
charged with obtaining goods from
Hiirnham, Manna, Monger & Co., was
continued until later In the term.
Itev. Dr. V. It. Hill, of tho Troost Ave
nue Methodist church, read a paper on
"Churih Work" at the meeting of the
Ministers' Alliance yesterday morning. The
paper discussed very largely the subject of
revivals. While Dr. Hill did not at all
deprecate revivalism and revivals alto
gether, he took the ground that they uro
orten productive of more evil than good.
"There are revivalists and revivalists," he
said. The subject was discussed by several
of tho ministers present. Itev. 1'rank D.
Alt man said that though be had had ser
mons preached by city pastors at special
meetings In his church he had never em
ployed an evangelist. Itev. Dr. T. 11.
Vnssar spoke brlelly and was followed 'by
Itev. J. I,. Sewall. He gave two Illustra
tions, one showing that revivals when con
ducted by the proper kind of persons are
elfeetlve, the other that steady, conscien
tious w oik by a pastor Is Just as ef
llclent as any revival. Itev. C. L. Klnss
raised a laugh by remarking that he had
heard It said that revivals are designed
especially for lazy church members. Ho
added that too much work Is put upon
pastors altogether, as they are obliged to
shoulder everything In their congregation,
even to the eases of the measles. Itev. Dr.

with two sketches, the one of the flour
plans and the nther of the elevation of

architects dlscttsssed these some time
In executive session, there being but tew
alterations from the plans stated in gen
eral terms In the Journal some weeks
ago. However, no plans have been ac
cepted by the board as yet, those which
have been submitted being tentative
still. Tho board Instructed the two
architects to finish both plans In per
spective fur the next meeting of the

Mrs. Anna Itellnh, charged with p.is
lug worthless chocks un members of the
Lincoln family, who Is In Jsll ut Liberty
nwnltliig the action uf the grand Jury,
yesterday morning delivered to Shurirf
llynier, of Clay county, a handsome
sent wrap, worth JloO. and asked hltn tyi
send It at mice to .Mr. John lingers, a
furrier at Toronto, Cnumln, from whom
she purchased It in January, mil. She
left the city wltli tho wrap ami had not
paid for It. She said she had Intended
to pay for It, ami would have done so
hud she not lost her liberty.
Sir. lingers lenrned of her being locked
tip through tho dally papers und wrote
to .Sheriff llymer asking him to get tho
cloak If possible. Mo showed the letter
to .Mrs. Hellah. She ai knowledced tho
debt ami willingly gave up Hie garment
mill sent n message of regret with It
last evening when Sherirf llymer started
tho garment buck to lis owner. Sir.
ltogets doubled that mild menus would
win and hud engaged nn attorney in
case of an emergency.
It Is current rumor (hat Sirs. Hellah
will, when brought to trial, claim she Is
n Hflllsh subject, In the hope that she
may thereby escape serious punishment.
The grand Jury look up the en so of
Sirs. Hellnh the Hrnt thing yesterday
when It organized. Lent S. Lincoln, who
wtis forced lo pay a check for $110 he
Indorsed, was the llrst witness called be
fore the Jury, and Cashier Thompson, of
tin- Kxcolslur Springs) bank, was the
next. Some other witnesses are to be
called In the case, nnd It Is likely that
the Jury will complete her case this
morning. It is the general impression
that she will be indicted, lull ilottbls us
to her conviction are freely expressed,
owing lo the fact that shu passed a
check drawn by her husband and which
she claims she believed was all right at
the time. SlrH. Hellah lias been locked
up In n private apartment In the court
house Nlnce her arrest In Kansas Clly
some months ago. The action of the
sheriff in not locking her up In the jail
was indorsed by the people of Liberty
oil the grounds of humanity, as the jail
Is it vile dungeon, wholly unlit for hu
man abode. The rouni iu which she Is
ciiullued adjoins the circuit court room
and affords n pretty view of Liberty and
William Jewell college.
Sirs. Hellah dislikes the riirlnlty of
tin' public, nnd objects very much to
having the crowds admitted to annoy
her and stare ut her. She bus asked of
Sheriff llymer lo refuse admittance to
the public. When anyone calls to see
her she Is always; asked If she wants to
see him, and If she does not he Is not
admitted. .Many were refused admit
tance yesterday, as the prisoner was
not In u frame of mind to care lo meet
anyone. She litis Interested In the prob
able action nf the grand jury that was
to begin work on her case.
Mer son, who Is said lo have left his
home In Canada two weeks ago nnd
purchased a ticket to St. Louis, litis not
shown tip here yet so far as the public
knows. Dining the past week several
attorneys from Kansas City have been
here looking up the case, ami it is be
lieved site has employed strong counsel
to represent her at the trial. She Is
known lo have engagei! Senator Sinirall.
uf Liberty, and Attorney lluckner, of
Sirs. Hellah receives all her letters
through her attorneys and sends out all
of her communications Hie same way.
Concerning the sensational rumors of
the ladles Hocking to her room to call
on her and the great attention she Is
said to have been receiving. Sheriff Jak"
llymer stated last evening tn a Journal
representative: "I refused to luck Mrs.
Hellah In the county Jail because it
Isn't a Tit place fur unyune. For three
days I kept her at my house. Since Hen
she has been locked up In her room.
Her son stays there with her. There
hasn't been a single woman In Liberty
to call on her since her Incarceration,
except my wife, who went with me a
few times when f took her meals to It. r
She did not go to call, but simply went
along with mo. All these reports con
cerning mv taking her out sleigh rldlng
or the Indies sending lier bouquets and
Hocking to the jnll to see her are slinplv
il n slinking lies, as the people li.-i.-
well know. I have treated her ns I
