Republicans Uneasy At The
Prospect of an Injunction
Roalixe That Two Can Play at
The Game Bradley
Will Weaken
Frankfort Ky Nov 27 There
is a general impression outside that
some important move is to be made
by the Goebel side early this week
and it is generally supposed that
a mandatory injunction suit to pre
vent the state election board from
counting1 the vote of Jefferson Knox
and Johnson counties will be part
of it though his is not confirmed
by any one in authority
It is doubtful if Governor Brad
ley would recognize Goebel as gov
ernor il given a certificate of elec
tion by the state election board un
less their action was in obedience
to a ruling of the court In that
event it is believed he would re
sist no further but would advise
Taylor to contest before the legis
lature
Neither Bradley Taylor nor
any of the Republican leaders how
ever believe that the court of ap
peals in the face of its decision in
the Nelson county case yesterday
will grant an injunction and are
today more confident than ever that
the state election board will give
Taylor a certificate of election
In Taylor circles it is claimed that
two of the three state commissioners
Ellis and Pryor are sure to vote to
stand by the vote in every county
as it appears on the face of the
returns

Chester 111 November 25 Ellis
Glenn until to day believed by ev
erybody in Southern Illinois and
Missouri to be a man turns out to
be a woman Glenn who came
from the East was arrested and
pleaded guilty at Ilillsboro 111 on
a charge of forgery It was alleged
that he endeavored to obtain money
on a forged note lie was sentenced
to serve an indefinite period on
parole at the Southern Illinois Pen
itentiary at Chester This is an
institution for male prisoners only
To day Glenn arrived at the
prison in charge of Sheriff Cassidy
Fifteen minutes after the arrival of
the pair the prison walls shook with
a sensation such as it has not
known in a long while Glenn was
regularly turned over to Deputy
Warden McDowell who receipted
for him The prisoner was ordered
as is customary in such cases to
have his hair clipped That ope
ration performed he was assigned
to the bathroom to undergo a good
washing as is also customary
The sex of the prisoner was discov
ered before the immersion
It was a surprise to the officials
Glenn was hustled into clothes
again without any delay and sent
off to the hospital where an exami
nation by surgeons proved conclus
ively that the nev arrival was not
a man as had been supposed but
a real live woman As there is no
ward for women at Chester Glenn
was placed in charge of Cassidy
and forwarded back to Ilillsboro

Like a thunderbolt from a clear

town near Ilillsboro When ar
rested Glenn was released on bail
furnished by the young lach s
father When apprised of the
startling development in the cae
to ciay Miss Dukes refused to be
lieve that her fiancee was ot her
own sex Still the telegram con
veying the information proved a
great shock to the young woman
One of Glenns attorneys is Con
gressman Jett of this state To
day after her sex became known
she wired him at Washington if he
would sHll be her counsel She
evidently intends to make a light
for her liberty Pending anything
being done in this respect she will
be sent to the prison at Joliet
