! SOPER TO PLEAD INSANITY
Defense of the Archie. Mo., '.Hiirilercr
Was Temporarily Insane.
Kansas Citv, Mo., Juno Si. If E.
IJ. Sopor attempts to make any de
fense at all when his trial for murder
ing his wlfo and two children at
Arch I o six years ago Is called In Har
rlsonvlllo next month, his plea will bo
that ho was temporarily Insano when
ho committed the crimes. This In
sanity, ho will aver, was brought
about' by frequent spells of uncon
trollable melancholy. In a letter to
his wlfo at Portland, Sopor declares
that this was tho reason why ho mur
dered tholr child nnd committed his
other crimes In Missouri.
Wlion Hopcr was first brought back
to llnrrlsonvlllo ho told Frank Lowo,
prosecuting attorney, and his brother,
Ham E. Lowe, the patrolman who
ntndo tho capturo and brought hit
prisoner from the coast to Missouri,
that ho killed his last child, and that
1)0 would wrlto his wlfo about It This
he did June 17. Ilcre is a copy of the
llAiutisotfvir.Mc, Mo., June 17, 1807.
My Densest Katto: I write onco
more to ask you to forglvo If possible.
No ono can realize what I have suf
fered, unless you do. And now I write
to toll you that our dear llttlo baby is
dead. I burled him In tho woods just
down Tillamook street, upon tho hill
nenr tho slough. It will bo of no uso
to look for tho body, foi that will do
Dcnr Katie. It was tho same old
melancholy feeling that comes over
mo that caused this. And you know
that you woro talking of taking poison.
Now, Katie, I want to sond you what
monay I havo left Will yoo accept It?
If so, wrlto mo a few words and tell
me where to send the money. This is
tho only hope 1 havo of over making
any nmonds to you for all this troublo.
I have tried so hard to ovorcomo this
melancholy feeling, but somehow I
cannot Plcass tell me where to send
tho money, and then I hope to foel
some better. Your loving, but un
worthy husband. E. 11. Sor-KR.
P. S Katie, don't hate mo, for I
can't help It
On tho receipt of the letter Mrs.
Soper, according to a telegram from
Portland, laid tho matter boforo the
coroner, but a dlllpont search of tho
place designated in tho letter failed to
reveal any trace of tho child. Sopor's
story to tho Lowes was that ho had
thrown the baby luto tho Wtlllametto
rlvor. Tho authorities are rather in
clined to believe that the first story
about tho river is tho correct one, and
that he lied to his wlfo in order to
keep her from finding the body.
Tho criminal court of Cass county
has called n special session of the
court to try Sopor in July.

Although the tltno for filing a mo

at Omaha last week of tho embezzle
ment of 31.11, 884. 7f of state funds, filed
Ills motion Friday morning aud through
Ills attorneys, C. O Whcclou and T. J.
Mahoney, announced to tho court that
lie had some ovidenco ho wished to
submit in support of tho allegations of
Mr. Mahoney said ono of tho points
on which ho desired evidence was that
tho announcement made by tho coun
ty nttorney In tho presenco of tho en
tire panel of jurors that an attempt had
been mnde to bribe soma of the jurors,
and tho subsequent arrest aud sentence
of Joslah S. Wright on tho chargo of
contempt of court by an attempt to
bribe a juror, affected the jurors sitting
on tho Hartley caso wltha prejudicial
feeling against Hartley. That the an
nouncement was unnecessary as tho
court was already informed, and the
announcement was only intended to
opcrato against the defendant on tho
minds of the jurors waiting to bo
called to sit on tho trial.
Ho wanted a new trial also because
tho state had special detectives at work
following tho jury, night and day, eat
ing at the same tabic, running errands
for the jurors and frequently walking
with them to and from tholr meals
and at such times holding converse
with each other.
He also wished to show misconduct
on tho part of the bailiffs, who had the
jury in charge, tho claim being that
thoy invited tho detectives to work
with them ano the jurors.
Tho state, represented by County
Attorney Haldrige and Attornoy
Gcneral Smyth, objected to the intro
duction of oral testimony, claiming
that tho defense can only sustain Its
motion bv affidavits.
This objection was sustained by
Judge Baker, who said tho defense
must proceed by affidavit
The motion for a now trial contains
l.r3 assignments of error and fact,
among whiuh latter are tho three mat
ters mentioned by Mr. Mahoney.
Saturday Judge Baker overruled tho
'motion for a now trial nnd sentenced
Hartley to the penitentiary for twenty
years and to pay a flno of 8303,708.00

Saturday afternoon nnd suspended tho
sentence passed upon Hartley and
placed his bond at 3135,000. It is very
doubtful if he will be able to secure it.
His bond has been placed in tho hands

found for the defendant. The case will,
of course, bo taken to the supremo
Tho result of the case will be anx
iously watched by every building and
loan association in tho state, as nearly
all of them have outstanding loans
made prior to 1891. In tho Chadron
association nearly one-half of the out
tnndincr loans are in the third series
and this scries is a very large ono and
the next to mature. Of courso If Judge
Klnkald's decision holds all thoso who

till if tho association brings foreclos

Mrs. O'Linn made, usury and uncon

bo seen, however, what the supreme
court will do with the decision and if
it is reversed thr status of tho case
will be materially changed.
