Tuesday night young Bank suggest ed that he, his brother-in-law, Ed ward Blank, and their father go hunt ing. They started early in the morn ing, arriving near the county line be fore daybreak.

I pulled my coat off, in laid it under his head and began to wipe the blood off his face that .had begun to pour in a heavy stream. In the meantime my father arrived, for he, too, had heard my calls for help. Several men. who were hunting, came upon the scene and they tried to stop the flow of blood, but our ertott-. weie of no avail." Because of some trouble on the tele-1 1 4:wa n phone wires, it required o..ic tio. fore a physician could be reached. Drs. mil and Taul Williams were sum moned and they arrived with an am bulance. When the doctors arrived they pronounced life extinct. They had to administer stimulants to Edward Blank, who had collapsed. Albert Blank ,a brother, told of the toruble he had in getting in communi cation with the Cape and summoning a doctor. On his way to the road house of Lawrence Welder, he was overtaken by a man in his automobile, whom he told of the accident. After he had notified Dr. Williams he hur ried back to the scene in this auto mobile. Almost two hours elapsed be fore he returned to the scene of the accident. He found his brother-in-law dead. He had lived almost three hours after the shooting, despite the fact that the shots had penetrated his skull and the brains had begun to ooze out. The dead man had to be carried on a stretcher for a distance of nearly a mile, beeause the ambulance could not drive through the swamps.

PROBABLY CONCLUDES LENGTHY LITIGATION Suit Tiled by Cape Cirardeauan in Washington, Likely to be Dropped. Judge Walter D. Sanborn, in the United States Circuit Court at St. Louis yesterday, upheld the report of Thflmas Fauntleroy, master in chan very of the Frisco Railway receiver ship, which awarded Louis Houck of this u'ty his claim of $l,0f.7,:lGS.0r, for the Frisco's failure to live up to its contract to take over the Cape Girar deau and Northern Railway, which runs from this city to Perry ville. The report of Master Fauntleroy was made to th Federal Court two months ago, only a short time before Judge Sanborn approved the Frisco j organization and sale to a syndicate. I mv... .

Mr. Houck there-; ! upon went to Washington, where he filed a suit in the United States Court, j ! asking for a judgment in the amount , of $l,0"7,r,86.95 against the t nsco j Raihvav. The action of Judge San-j born yesterday virtually closes the liti- j gation, and Mr. Houck expects to ne;0fl-erei from men from all over th nid the amount of his claim within a j cf t 1 n 1. 1 nv:ictical exneri- - .

This announcement also withdrew the Frisco's guarantee of the bonds and their value on the market disap peared. The action also forced the C G. & X. into receivership. Mr Houck and the St. Louis Union Trust Company, holding a large ma- of the hond flied a suit in the Federal Court, seeking to try out the validity of the sale of the C. G. & N. to the Frisco, and thus restore the value of the bonds. The trial of the case was referred by Federal Judge Sanborn to Mr. Fauntleroy as special master. At the close of the trial, Fauntleroy, a year ... ., . ifi(r. Snn- ago. suomitiea a ivjiuii. w born in which he asserted the validity of the sale of the C.

Judge Sanborn made that orner m the court last November, but follow ing that step, it became necessary for the court to determine how much the Frisco would have to pay on the bonds. Judge Sanborn decided that in order to maintain the Frisco's contract as a guarantor, it would be necessary for that road to pay damages amounting to the difference between the par value of th2 bonds and the market value im mediately after the Frisco went to into receivership. In order to establish this amount it (Continued on page five.) Governor-Elect Gardner Also Approves Plan to Buy Big Tract for Prisoners.
