Women stormed the court of Judge Foster, Thursday In an attempt to attend the trial of Hans Schmidt, the renegade priest, accused of murdering Anna Aumuller, and precipitated a near riot. When tho trial began Judge Foster barred the morbid and curious from his room, but more than 100 women appeared Thursday and moved on the door In a body. They were ordered away by the bailiff on guard at the door and then they "rushed him". Several got by the guard, but other court attendants rushed to his aid and they were driven out. When they were ejected several of the women became hysterical and had to bo led from the buildlnpr. Slow to Moot leather. Schmidt's aged father was spurned by the defendant Thursday. The old man. who came from Germany with his daughter to aid his son, wept when he was told that Schmidt would not see him. "I will seo my sister, but I don't want to see my father," said the pris oner. "Why should I see my father? I don't care anything about him." L.ater he changed his mind and the father and sister went to Schmidt's cell together. The old man threw his arms about his son's neck and in sobs declared the belief in the prisoner's Innocence. Tho sister also wept and begged her brother to assure he was innocent, but he refused to answer. According to testimony given by Mrs. Joseph Igler, whose husband was a cousin of Anna Aumuller, the slain girl boasted just before her death that she was going to marry a mil lionaire. Threaten xl to Shoot Her. Mrs. Igler said the Aumuller threatened to shoot her because upbraided her (Miss Aumuller) Eirl she for her relations with Schmidt. Witnesses who knew Anna Aumuller testified for tho state Wednesday at the trial of Schmidt for murder. Through all their testimony the for mer priest sat as If he were a disin terested spectator Instead of defend ant.. His attorneys seized on every point that, would support their con tention that he is insane' On a table before Schmidt lay the saw and the knife with which he had dissected her body, nearby were the stained pillow slip in which he had wrapped a portion of it before he dropped it into the river from a ferry boat, and stone with which he had weighted It. Schmidt Unmoved. To these exhibits for the state he paid no heed. He was unmoved when a stenographer read the confession he made to the police and when a physi cian told minutely of the manner in which tho victim's body had been dissected. The only expression of interest manifested by him was shown when Anna Hert, friend of the girl Schmidt is charged with slaying, said that Anna Aumuller told her Schmidt wanted to marry her. "We will get married," Schmidt told the Aumuller girl, according to Miss Hert, "and go to some far off country and I will hang cassock on a high book." Hy that. Miss Hert said, Schmidt meant he would leave the priesthood. The witness knew of Schmidt's rela tions with the Aumuller girl. Once Anna Aumuller had asked her if she would be godmother to the child Anna was expecting. "I told her maybe," the witness raid. "I never met Schmidt, but Anna used to tell me. about him.

Out of the iirst $4,500 raised, ou donors raised the entire amount. "As long as the workers will con tinue to take an optimistic view of their work they will meet with success and the $50,000 will be raised in the eight days," asserted Rev. James L. Gardner. Simon Greenebaum, member of the hospital board, suggested a plan to prevent duplicate solicitation. Women Want More Work. Not content to cover the small ter ritory laid out for them the women asked the executive committee for a different scheme. They contine their work to the residence sections while the men interview the business men down town. This results in the women's teams turning in smaller donations. The plan may be altered to give the women a larger share in the work. Mrs. Milburn Studebaker has charge of a plan of securing $1,000 to endow a room for tho Visiting Nurses' as sociation. Every member of the as sociation will be seen individually by Mrs. Studebaker and when the room is endowed six persons sent to the hospi tal by the association will be cared for free of charge in this room.

SEEK MISSIN G U II A ni Oil V it Father of Jessie McCann Hears That Daughter Was Seen in That City Wednesday. NEW YORK, Dec. 11. Robert G. McCann, the wealthy merchant whoso daughter Jessie is missing under cir cumstances similar to those of Dor othy Arnold, went to Philadelphia Thursday to run down a clue, that Miss McCann" is in that city. Inspector Faurot, who has charge of the search for the girl, told Mr. McCann that his I daughter had been seen there Wed , nesda'- night and detailed two detec ! tives to accompany the merchant upon nis mission. Mr. McCann said he would call up on relatives in Philadelphia on the theory that his daughter may have taken a sudden notion to visit them without notifying her parents. Inspector Faurot now has in his possession the letter which Miss Mc Can received and wept over just before she left home. It is signed "I Wen dell cviuires", a friend of Miss Mc Cann. Part of the letter d-elt upon Mr. Squires' determination "not to let love interfere with his scholastic career".

C. - : Oliver School Starts Penny Day in Anticipation of Dime Day Tomorrow Prizes for the School Children. Thursday was Penny Day in one of the lower grade rooms at the Oliver school. Catching the spirit of Dime Day on which all the higher grade school pu pils will give a dime for a fund for the Children's Dispensary, 52 young sters out at the Oliver school early Thursday morning launched a Penny Day campaign and everyone brought a penny to make a special collection for the dispensary. Xot feeling that sho could get all of her companions to give ten cents apiece and still wanting her room to take part in the city-wide contribu tion, one little girl suggested the plan that all the class bring pennies and have a penny day in the school. F'.itriotism to her school room and a deep interest in raising money for the dispensary led her to ask her teacher, Miss Alsa Carlson, about her plan. The matter was approved and it was arranged that every one bring a penny. When school began in the afternoon nearly every pupil present had contributed, and 52 pennies had been briught in. Stimulated by the fact that the proposed new dispensary will probably be erected in the vicin ity of the school, practically every one in the class remembered to bring a penny to help raise the fund. Many of the pupil? knew all about the present dispensary, some having little brothers and listers who have been cared for there while ethers were well acquainted with the library. A report of the results of the con tribution was promptly phoned to the News-Times office after it had been taken up at noon and later one of the pupils came to the otfice with a little sack of pennies.

Contest for Dolls. Tho interest shown in the cr.m paign by the school children has re sulted n the dispensary directors de ciding to give a special list of nine prizt .s to the school children bringing in the largest number of subscriptions to the dispensary fund. This doesn't mean the greatect amount of money. The prizes go to those who succeed in getting the largest number of people to help out in the fund. The prizes are such as to make the children's mouths water. Three great ! dolls, the largest worth $4.'. will go to the children who are first, second and third on the li:?t. Then come three structo outfits, out of which the boys and the girls can devise wonderful things. And the last pres ent is .i duck for tho kindergarten.

V in EAR ftl HARLIN S BOOKS MAT SHOW 100,000 SH0R1 Anxiety Grows Among Credit ors Since Real Estate Man Filed Petition in Voluntary Bankruptcy. MATTER MAY GO UP BEF8RE GRAND JURY People Who Entrusted Money to Him Are Dissatisfied With Accounting and Want an In vestigation. Incident to the petition in volun tary bankruptcy filed last Friday in the 1. S. district court at Indianapo lis by Al. G. Harlin of South Rend, developments are coming to light that may result in a numlwr of his transactions being submitted to th grand jury at its February session. Among the obligations scheduled, as is now asserted by c reditors, there are several that involve money re ceived by Harlin in a fiduciary capa city, and which bankruptcy cannot discharge. These creditors also claim to the misappropriation of lands on the part of Harlin may ag gregate a total of more than $10'. 00 . Two of the largest creditors sched uled, in making up the $10,000 lia bilities alleged in the petition, is the Thomas H. A. P.yerley estate, S3u, 00". and the Jason I. Damon estate. The administratrix of the I.yerb-y cstat is a daughter of the deceased. Mrs. Matilda M. Foster, and It is as sorted in her behalf that every dol lar of the jr.o.ooo scheduled repre sents misappropriations. The beneficiaries of the Damon estate is the widow, Mrs. Wilda Da mon, and her son. Fred Damon, both of whom now reside at 14Ib" Jre-n-leaf a v.. Hogers park, 'hica;o. Th y tell a similar story to that of the F. -erley .-tate representatives with re gard to money left with Harlin lo lean, lat on which they h;e e ie r received any return aside from thv interest. The Damons claim the shortages in which they aic concerned uiil run nearer ?40,000 than $30,000. Rumors Long: Afloat. Rumors of queer business meth ods n the part of Harlin have been in the air for a couple months, but nothing cry delinite had come to light until after the petition in bankruptcy was tiled. It now develops that the petition was filed due to the fforts of vari ous creditors to Kt their matters straightened up. Harlin had a'ted as loan and real i state agent lor Thomas H. A. Py r le.v for some ten or IT, years previous to the latter's death, and but for the necessity of securing a schedule of his trans ictions. which proved them to be faulty, the process might have gone on indetinitely. The first transaction of Harlin's to arouse suspicion was a note for $1,000 given by himself as guardian of a young man named Kuntsman, to himself as Rycrley's agent. The in terest had always been paid. but Kuntsman denies ever having receiv ed any benefit from the money; that his estate ever received it. or that payment wa.s provided for In stt! ment of the estate. Further investi gation developed that numerous oth er loans made from Ryerlcy's money had been paid and never accounted for. the interest. however, having been. kett ut. in some cases, even for a number of year. Damon Finding- Similar. Hie Damon people became wise to Harlin's proceedings in much the same way as the Ry rJey's, the result of Mrs. ilattie M. Marlde demanding discharge nf a $L200 mortgage whb h she had paid upwards to ten year ago. It was Damon money loaned to Mrs. Marble some years previous, and on which they had always received the interest, supposing, of course, that the principal amount was still run ninur. The payment had always been made to Harlin. Mrs. MarMe holds a receipt for the principal, dated May 190.!. Investigations following this dis closure are reported to have shown (CONTINLTD ON PAOF TWO.) MRS. YOUNG FORCED FROM SCHOOL BOARD nifAG( , Dec. ii.
