Hixon.charg ed with attempted assault on Mrs. Ly dia Huebner of Smelterviile, has been set for trial for tomorrow morning be fore Justice of the Peace W. H. Wil ier. Hixon, who was taken before the Judge yesterday morning, was releas ed on a bond for $200 to assure hia appearance before court. He denied yesterday the charges preferred against him by Mrs. Hueb ner. He told Judge Wilier that he went to the Huebner home Thursday afternoon to pay a friendly visit as he had known the family for years. He spoke to Mrs. Huebner for a short while, but did not make any indecent proposals to her as charged in the warrant, he said. Hixon is well known in Smelterviile, where is employed as a saw filer, He was a candidate for City Council several times, but was defeated at ev ery election. t A collection is being taken up in the Catholic Churches ox" the entire' coun-1 try for the relief of the Belgian chil dren. The two Cape Girardeau parish es h3vc contributed their share to the national fund, which will be forwariled j to Archibishop Glennon in St. Louis who will send it to the headquarters of the Belgian Relief Association. Some time ago Tope Benedict issued a decree, asking the Catholic children of the United States to contribute to the support of their suffering friends in Belgium, and the document was for warded to Cardinal Gibbons who com municated it to the Catholic clergy of the United States. The pastors of all Catholic parishes were asked to announce the collection j in their parochial school and request that each child gh'e 10 cente to the fund. According to Rev. Father Thos. J. Levan, pastor of the St. Vincent's par ish, the collection yielded ?15 in the convent, which is attended by girls ex clusively. He expected to realize ap proximate iy Z from the parochial scho-d which is attended by the boys oniy. R-rv. Father Ebcrhard Pruer.te, pas tor of St. Mary's Church, said last night that he had forwarded the amount collected in his school to the Archbishop in St. Louis. He would not .-ay what the amount of the col Iecfon wr- . This school is attended by girls and boys. !t i? said that the request of Arch bishop Glennon was freely responded to in the archdiocese of St. Louis to which Cape Girardeau belongs. When the collection was first announced, it was believed that the Germans or those of German birth would be op posed to the purpose of the collection, and for that reason Archbishop G!en noii in his message to the priests of his diocese added a commending note to the copy of the Tope's degree, ask ing that the purpose for which the moncv would be used be considered i . i i j n i : V 1 a. , anu us at au national presume? nc s-,"-i asid-f in contributing to the Belgian fund. Owing to the fact that nearly all communications with Europe has been suspended since the break between Germany and the United States, it is believed that some difficulty will be ex perienced in forwarding the money collected in the United Slates. It is planned to have one of the neutral na tion.?, perhaps, Holland or Scandinavia, act as medium between the United States and Belgium. If every child in the parochial schools of the United States would contribute the amount expected, a con isderablc sum could be realized. It is believed that several hundred thousand dollars could be raised in that way. JACKSON CEMETERY BONDS ARE CARRIED Vote Was 16S to 16 in Faror of Issue $5,000 to be Expended for New Grave Yare. The $5000 cemetery bondb voted on yesterday in Jackson earned by the overwhelming majority of 168 to 16. An ordinance to approve the passage of the bonds will be passed by the City Council at the next meeting and the sale of the bonds will be author ized. The money to be realized from the sale of these bonds will be utilized for the purchase of a new cemetery in Jackson. The tract that has been taken into consideration comprises 13 acres. Several streets leading to the cemetery will be either constructed or improved. A committee of three has been se lected to look after the uite and make whatever recommendations are neces sary to the City Council before tho work on the new cemetery will be started. This committee consists of Messrs. Joseph Schmuckc, M. La Pierre and Henry Sievers. The total vote cast for the special election was very light and fell far below the normal vote cast in the gen eral election. The largest number of votes was cast in the Fourth ward, where 69 voters appeared at the polls. Of these 63 voted for the bond issue while 6 opposed it. The Third ward showed the second heaviest vote with 62, of which only four opposed the bond issue. Of the 19 votes cast in the Second ward, 6 were against the bonds, while the 28 votes in the First ward were unanimously for tb bond:. Harry E. Johnson, deputy constable of Smeltei-ville. resie-ned i-pstorrfov ! o rf "J morning after a row with Constable D. M. Scivally, who, according, to wit nesses, told Johnson he could not serve any more warrants unless he had re- receivetl an order from Scivally. The argument was the concluding chapter to a disagreement the two had yester day morning in Justice of the Peace W. H. Willer's office. Johnson, who performed excellent work during his short term as deputy, met the constable yesterday morning at Judge Willer's office, where a case was to be tried in which Johnson had arrested the principal. It was a. statu tory charge which was preferred against William Hixon several days ago. In the past few weeks Justice of i, i II t n i i i t i J scrve n warrants bec,se he Mt het. ter service from Johnson, he said, than Constable Scivally gave. This, it is said, angered the aged constable. They met again in Haarig and renewed the argument. Johnson told Scivally that he would resign. "I will not permit anything to re strain me from carrying out rav duties as a deputy constable," Johnson said. If I am asked to get service by any Judge, I shail proceed, and will not let anything stand in my way. If my duties Ae to be restricted or limited, then I resign." "Then yea resign," retorted Con stable Scivally, and the two departed. Johnson, however, according to the law will have to submit r.js resigna tion in writing before it can be effec tive. Judge Wilier, who had relied on Johnson for a number of important arrests, expressed regret at learning that Johnson had resigned. He added that he would not depend upon Scival ly for serving warrants. "If any are to be served I will hand them to the local police," he said. Two months ago Judge Wilier and Constable Scivally engaged in a heat ed argument in the former's office. The .!udire nointod out a number of I . . warrants which Scivally had carried in his pocket for months had never boon served. Since that time feeling ex isted between lh-.; agvd men. and the action of Scivally yesterday has widen ed the breach. Frisco is Toid City Will Sue It For Trespassing Continued tlom page 1) suit. Mayor Kage and Counselor Knehans yesterday discussed the action taken by the city of St. Louis against the Terminal Railroad Association and decided to follow the precedent es tablished by St. Louis. Superintendent Claiborne of the Frisco yesterday sent one of his as sistants to Mayor Kage to present Mr. Claiborne's side of the controversy. The Mayor was told that the machines removed by the Frisco were hardly more than junk and had not been used. The railroad official had hardly left Mayor Kage's office until one of the Frisco machinists passed. Mayor Kage asked him whether the ma chines were junk. He said five of them had been used every day and were in good order when the Frisco loaded them into a car and removed them to Springtield. The Frisco em ploye also told the Mayor that the Frisco had virtually discharged all of the men in the :diop. Only four were left, he said, and it was believed they would be dismissed by the end of the v eek. A Frisco employe called at The Tribune office last night to complain about the railroad's treatment of the men. "We are unable to leam what the officials of the railroad are plan ring to do. There were at one time 1 60 men in the Capo shops,' but they are now gone. Only one year ago we had a force of men large enough to re pair a dozen cars each day. But the force has been gradually reduced un til it is said that only a night watch man will be left by the end of this (veck. The men who have been work ing for the past several months have been compelled to submit to salary reductions. A Jew official at Spi-ing-ficld is said to be responsible for the treatment the Cape is . receiving, but it is likely that he has received orders from the St. Louis or New York SUtr-ni'rs vho now control the road."

As a result of a decision of the Supreme Court declaring the law fix ing the salar clerks to be ; of the circuit court unconstitutional, it is probable that the clerks who have drawn the increase allowed them un der the law, will be forced to refund the excess fee. xcess fee. The new law fixed the y of the clerks at $2000 per year, salary regardless, of ihe amount of fees do- rived from the suits filed in the courts. D. A. Nichols, cierk of the Com mon Pleas Court of Cnpe Girardeau, baa heen informed by an attorney whom he employed to look into the validity of the law, that he ranked as a clerk of a circuit court and that tin - der these conditions he was entitled to ?20tt0 per year. Nichols has al ready decided to bring suit against the County Court to compel the pay ment of $2009 per annum for his serv ices, when the test case was brought in the Supreme Court. The old law entitled the clerks of the Circuit Court to retain whatever fees were paid to the office, not to exceed 2000, however, per annum. The new law fixed the salary at 2000 straight and eliminated the fees for merly allowed the clerks. In the case of Ben Masters, the clerk of the Cape Girardeau Circuit Court, it is believed that he will have to re fund nearly $1000 for every year since he has drawn an annual salary of S2000. It is estimated that the fees of Cape County Circuit Court do not amount to more than ?10P0 every year. " Nothing doin, Mr. Get -Rich-Quick-Schemer I III keeo my money I.
