Justice Day, now at Mackinaw, is the nearest of any of the justices in Kansas. While the "justice might feel him self empowered to Issue an order for the review, members of the court lately have hesitated to take that re sponsibility where momentous ques tions delicately balanced were involv ed. Chief Justice White referred the question to the entire court when an application for similar relief was made in the "beef trust" case last winte. Such action would be equiv alent to a denial of the application in this case, it is pointed out, as the primary would be over before the court could act ln October, Its next date of meeting. Never has a case similar to that which has arisen in Kansas been be fore the supreme court. The last time the court was called upon to pass upon a contest" over presidential electors was in 1892, when a bitter controversy over the manner of se lecting electors came up for decis ion. There an order of review was granted and by advancing the case for consideration on the first day of the October term the court disposed of the case before the November elec tion. . x il NEGROES SHOT IN GDI!

Tnese people certainly have the true Christian spirit. From the time , the accident occurre at about 5 p. m. un til the body was found the next even ine seven miles awav. four hundred For several . months she had her lit tle heart set on our making a trip to sister's through the count-y. I l.ut her off until her school was out in June. Then I put her off until July, when she said, "Papa, we must go to Sister's." She lnsiste so hard to remain a week or so. I Pnally agreed, after being assured that she would have the closest at tention. On the fatal day she want ed some candy and other little no tions. After persuading her sister for some time she was allowed to fio alone. Soon the thunder began to roll and the lightning to flash, and as the dear little one hurried hack the rain began to descend in tor rents. The little" spring branch about 150 yards from the home was soon flooded, and as the dear little cne drew near she was seen to stop rot knowing what to do, as she was afraid of muddy water. Evi dently the Jaithful old horse being near home became restless and by force tried to cross the stream, Wil lie I believe trying to keep him out pulled one line so hard the buggy vub overturned precipitating the telpless little one out, her little head striking a sharp rock. Death was certainly Instantaneous and she was not drowned. When found her roouth was closed and no dirt or gravel In it. And this is the sad story. A bright little life, happy and just beginning to bloom ruth lessly snuffed out. We parents- in our eclining years are htart broken. Three sisters, two brothers, a host of relatives and friends bowed In grief.

"There is no Hudson river; there is Hudson sewer," said Poultney Bigelow today in commenting on the agreement just reached that raw sewage from the Bronx Valley sewer shall not be dis charged into the Hudson river. This compact was made by the commis sioners of the sewer and the govern ment, and provides that army engi neers shall have supervision of the construction of the drain. The agree ment is the rerult of a fight made by the Merchants Association . for the purification of the Hudson and the problem of the Passaic Valley sewer piolmbiy will be settled in a Bimilar way. Mr. Bigelow, who has protest ed for thirty years against the pollu tion of the Btieam, declared 'that the Hudson river had ceased to exist "When I was a boy," he continued, "the cadets of West Point took their j daily swim in the Hudson; today 1 there is scarcely a bather brave enough to face the sewage. Today, shad have become almost a curiosl-i ty; ln iny father's time they were! sold for five cents apiece by the bar-! rel, but now they are too costly to ! be the. diet of the email farmer. The work of Edward Hatch of the Mer chants Association Is a noble one. In a small way I have tried to help. "Politicians appealed to for help admit it will take a disaster to arouse the public to the danger. Paris drinks the water of the Seine; London draws water from the Tipper Thames; Berlin drinks from the Spree, that flows through her gates. New York is the only great city of fny acquaintance that deliberately poisons the best natural water sup ply the world has ever known and then taxes the people millions for a supply of the poor desicated Cats kills, where there is barely enough ibf cattle ana humans, let alone the prospective millions of Greater Man hattan."

He had been unconscious for many hours prlor to his death, and the empress, the crown prince and the most prominent officials of the household and govern ment were at the bedside. Haruko, now dowager empress, yields to Princess Sadako, the young empress, who is the mother of three sons of whom the eldest is Hirohito. Haruko has won universal sympathy because of her untiring vigil in the sick room, where she remained con tinuously for ten days.

SQUEEZED ATTORNEYS SHOW UP ALLEGED SECRET METHODS OF THE STANDARD OIL. ST. LOUIS, July 30. Attorneys for II. Clay Pierce and associates reveal ed in the federal district court here today secrets of the Standard Oil's alleged domination of the Waters Pierce Oil Co. The statements were toade during an argument for the de fense in Henry M. Tilford's suit to oust Pierce and other officers of the Pierce company Attorneys for Pierce declared dur ing argument that one of the . peculiar features of the relations of the Standard and the Pierce companies was that the Standard did not permit the St. Louis company to own a re finery in the United States, thereby compelling it to purchase its refined oil from the Standard company. Attorneys also told the court .the Standard compelled the Pierce com pany to reduce its price to the re tail trade without itself suffering loss. The Standard, they told the court, made itself profit out of the price the Pierce company was com pelled to pay for its refined product The Pierce company was permit ted to operate a refinery in Mexico, according to -the attorneys, but the product of that refinery was not suffi cient tosupply more than the Mexi can trade. One of the contentions of Tilford in charging mismanagement of ths Waters-Pierce company by Pierce was that the company had built a refinery in Oklahoma. The building of this refinery, according to the attorneys, was necessary for the Pierce compa ny to "get out of the clutches" of the Standard company.
