Precinct Involved In
Avoca settlement is struggling in
the throes of a great sensation pre
cipated hy the filing of a complaint here
before Justice Archer, by Edie Shu
maker charging Will Stoll and Schu
maker's wife, Sadie, with adultery. A
warrant was issued upon the complaint
and delivered to the sheriff who at once
proceeded to Avoca where the couple
The parties are all well known resi
dents of Avoca precinct, Schumaker liv
ing about four miles northeast of the
village while Stoll lived in the same
locality, Stoll is a cousin of Schumaker.
Mrs. Schumaker is a woman about
twenty-eight years of age and is the
mother of three small children.
According to the story told by Schu
maker, he had been absent from his
house yesterday and unexpectedly re
turned home at noon, catching Stoll
and his wife in a compromising position.
He at once left the house and came
forwith to this city where he laid the
case before acting County Attorney
Robertson, with the result that the
complaint was filed as above set forth.
The sheriff is expected to arrive in
this city tonight with the couple whose
plea is not known here. The prelimi
nary examination of the parties will
doubtless take place before Justice
Archer tomorrow some time.

TAFT INVITED TO ILLINOIS
Wanted at the State Convention, but
Can't Attend TarifTKeTiBion.
ITot Sprinjrs. Va.. An jr. 20. Optimis
tic political Information was b'-ouxht to
Judjre Taft from several sources yes
terday. Though he participated In
several conferences none of them, he
said, was at his Initiative. Senator
Hopkins, of Ililnois. who has been In
Wash;njr,ton to attend the meet'nj of
the Burrows committee of the joint
tariff commission, wantpl Taft to be
present Sept. f) at the Republican state
convention, at Spr'njrfield. 111. A plat
form is to be adopted at this conven
tion, nnl trustees of the state univer
sity nominated. If Taft would attend.
Hopkins said, arrangements would be
made to open the state campaign at
that time. The national candidate,
however, said it would be impossible
for him to accept the invitation, but if
a speech making tour for Taft is de
cided upon Illinois will be included.

Republican national committeeman
from that state, was an unannounced
visitor. Taft was made to know that
North Dakota wanted to be Included
In any speech making itinerary that
might be arranged for his execution.
Senator Hopkins, who is chairman
of a subcommittee of the tariff com
mission having to do with the fix?ng
of schedules on articles of import
which come in competition with T'nitei
States manufactures, said lie should
call his committee Into action in the
near future. The tariff, be believed,
.would develop into the chief isue of
the campaign. It was also his opinion
that the revision which was to be pre
pared for this summer and enacted at
a special session, would result In the
reduction of many schedules and the
adoption of a maximum and minimum
tariff which would include in the lat
ter clas3 a sufficient number of articles
to make this method of dealing with
