charge of passing counterfeit money , will
occur In Judge Woolson'a court In DCS
Molncs this week. All of the court officials.
Including Special Agent Donncla , who hao
worked up the case against the boy , have the
strongest sympathy for him. It was owing
to this sympathy that the hearing was
hastened. In the ordinary course of events
the case would , not have been tried until
the March term of the federal court In this

to llo in jail here all winter before he
could know his fate. Olllccrs Murphy and

lilulTs and the Ninth district lnve their
share of the faithful who , irc prcontlng
their claims for recognition.
HIS F1IIST EXPEUI3XCE.
"This Is my first experience In the dis
tribution of patronage , " said Mr. Hager
yesterday. "It was but a day or two tiler
the election that the applications and peti
tions began to come In. Not a few dele
tions from the various towns In the dis

Already I have answered no less than 150
letters relative to postofllcca. As I stated
during the campaign and before the nomina
tion thp distributing of the ofllccs In the

Anger's apartments several times during
"t day , but would not admit that he was
a candidate for cither the office of marshal

retary of the state central committee , men
tioned above , claimed yesterday that Ills
visit to Mr. Hager was In the Interests of
Mr. Dawson , for the office of district attor
ney , and that while no determined effort
had been made by the gentleman or his
friends , ho was a candidate. Mr. Dawaon ,
when seen later , did not deny that he had
aspirations In this direction. Senator Pu
sey was also among the callers at Mr.
Hager's apartments yesterday.
SOME OF THE ASPIRANTS.
T. C. Bardslcy of Walnut Is another as
pirant for the same position , making the
third from this county. The other repub

The hearing of the charge ot assaulting
Emll Machan brought against John Jackaon
was not concluded yesterday. Another con
tinuance was taken until this morning.
When the ease was called Tuesday mornIng -
Ing young Machan positively Identified hU
assailant as John Jackson and adduced other
cvldiace to sustain his charge. All of
the Jacksons , wtio had testified , declared
that John was at home at the time the
assault was made , but they differed from
one to five hours In the time ot his return
and departure from home. A groccryman '
was produced who swore positively that I
ho sold John Jackson a pound of cheese [
at 7 o'clock , and the groverymau's store Is '
located within a short distance of the spot
where the attack was made. When this
testimony was given two Incidents occurred ,
A younger brother of John Jackson arose
and Informed the court that ho had made
the assault and that his brother was not
there. A few minutes afterward John Jack
son went up to young Macban and de
manded an exchange of hats. This brought
to light some additional convincing evi
dence. Purlng the assault the hats of both
parties were knocked off , and when Jack-
Bor. picked up one ho unfortunately got
hold of Machan's. Machan was obliged to
wear away Jackson's headgear , and the
voluntary Identification In the court room
was conclusive evidence. The efforts of
the younger Jaokeon boy to get hid brother
out only succeeded In getting himself In.
It U possible that somebody will be prose
cuted for perjury.

KANSAS CITY , Nov. 18. Mrs. Folcy , a
widow aged 65 years , and her unmarried
daughter. Fenny , aged 10 , were found mur
dered In their home near Liberty , Mo. , early
this morning. No motive for the crime Is
News of the murder reached police head
quarters at 4:30 : o'clock this morning. Wil
liam Folcy , aged 25 , a son of the murdered
woman , had visited a neighbor yesterday
evening , and returning home after midnight
was first to discover the dead bodies. The
gates to the farm were open , the cattle
and horses loose , and the trout door ajar.
Mother and sister were found in their bed
room , dressed in their night gowns and
bespattered with blood. The daughter lay
upon the floor , her head resting against the
bed , and the mother was stretched out , face
downward , beside her. They had both been
shot , the mother through the head and the
daughter In the back. Further Investiga
tion showed that the assaesln or assassins
had first fired at Mrs. Foley through one
of the front windows. The bullet lodged
In the head of the bedstead. Both women
evidently became frightened and ran Into
the bedroom In the rear. The door was then
forced open and the bloody work com
After making a hasty examination of the
bodies , the son gave the alarm to neighbors
and a party was eoon gathered and sought
for traces of the perpetrators of the crime.
Finding no definite or tangible clew they
rode to Kansas City , fifteen mllca distant ,
and reported the murder to the pollco de
partment. Detectives were Immediately sent
to Liberty from here , while In the mean
time posses were being organized at the
scene of the crime.
Three -years ago a horse wcs stolen from
Mrs , Folcy and a man named Hoover was
convicted and sent to the penitentiary. His
term recently expired , and It Is said that

The coroner's Jury , which began an In
vestigation of the tragedy this afternoon ,
was In secret session and upon adjournment
was sworn to secrecy. Tonight there Is B
strong sentiment against the son and
brother , William Folcy , who first reported
the murder , and though he has heretofore
homo an excellent name , ho Is being closely
watched. Mrs. Foley was a widow and one
story Is that there had long been some fric
tion In the family over her persUtent re
fusal to partition the family estate among
her three children. The murdered daughter
Is said to have sided with her mother In
the family dissensions.

DES .MOINES , Nov. 18. ( Special Tele
gram. ) E.V. . Curry , chairman of the fret
silver democratic state central committee ,
illeil early this morning at the Savcry ho
tel In tills city , whore ho has been sick ( or
two moi.tlis. Mr. Curry's death Is reported
to have boon the result of Injuries received
while bcliiR Initiated Into a DCS Molncs
lodge of Klks. lllood poisoning resulted
from tlio Injuries and this causcdjlcath.
As part of the Initiatory ceremony , ho was
seated In a chair with a thin Iron sent ,
and a large lighted lamp placed under It.
The object was to secure EOIIIC amusement ,
the candidate being expected to jump out
of the chair when the heat became unbsar-
able. But he didn't Jump. With some
friends he had been out In the afternoon ,
and when he went Into the hall he was
somewhat under the Influence of liquor.
The presumption Is that when he was placed
In the chair , blindfolded , hie sensibili
ties were so far benumbed that ho
was severely burned without knowing It
or being able to move. The lookers-on saw
him fairly cook for some time , wondcrtr.g
at his nerve , till they discovered smoke
rising from the chair. Then ho was taken
out of It and found to be badly burned. Ills
trousers were burned away and his flesh
almost crisp. He was taken to his hotel
and cared for by the best physicians. At
his own request It was given out 'that he
was suffering from ar.other trouble and the
true story did not leak out till today. Even
yet there Is much mystery about It.
As a result of the Injuries blood poisoning
set In very soon and from that time on
there was almost no hope of saving his
life. Ho grew worse steadily and for a large
part of the last month of his life was un
conscious. He manifested wonderful vltal-
Itv. and lived a week after the doc
tors pronounced his death a matter of only
a few hours. The story of how his Injuries
come about was given cut tonight by mem
bers of the Elks lodge , after on evening pa
per had published a much more sensational
Etory. The Ellta mot tonight , but after
their session had nothing to say except to
repeat their earlier version. There has been
no disposition on the part of Mr. Curry's
family to blame the members of the order ,
who have done all In their power for him
during the Illness. Mrs. Curry and her
daughter , the only members of the family ,
earnestly desired that Mr. Curry's frequently
expressed wish that the truth should never
bo made public , should be carried out. Mr.
Curry lived at Leon , la. , and was a lawyer.
Ho was 48 years old and had been a leader In
state politics for several years. I

LARAMIE , Wyo. . Nov. 18. ( Special. ) The
cowboys of the Laramle plains gave a unique
exhibition at the carnival Sunday afternoon.
Nearly 1,000 people from this city went cut
to see the sports , which consisted of a pro
gram of riding , roping and other cowboy
occupations. In the contest of riding buckIng -
Ing bronchos the spectators unwillingly par
ticipated. Lou Bath was attempting to ride
Hunter Boy , a powerful , wild , black an lm.il.
After Lou mounted the horse belted and ran
with head down under one of the ring ropes.
The rope caught the rider about the neck
and stripped him from the saddle. With
the rope caught about the horn of the sad
dle the horse dished Into the crowd of spec
tators , encircling hundreds of people and
scoies of horses and wagons. There was a
general stampede ; the rope caught under
the wheels of one wagon and overturned It
with Its occupants and the team ran away.
Mounted cowboys finally caught the horse
and Bath again remounted him. This time
ho again jumped among the spectators. In
two Jumps ho took the wheels off two wag
ons and threw the occupants a party of

quered him and rode him around the ring.
Burt Schcnk , who has been with "Buffalo
Bill" during the past season , had an excit
ing experience upon the back of a beautiful
bay , which pitched and bucked and finally
ran away. Schcnk stuck to the saddle , but
had to have the assistance of several cow
boys , who herded his horse back to the ring
for him. Charlie Mayflcld then had an ex
perience with a big gray from the Hunter
herd. Mayfleld's spur caught as ho waa get
ting on the animal , which , had to be blind
folded to get the saddle on , and did not have
a cure scat when the bucking began. Ho
was shot up in the air fully five feet above
the horse , and when ho came down his
mount was making excellent tlmo across the
pralrlo with half a dozen cowbcys In pur
suit. The animal was roped and brought
back , and Moyfleld , who Is on old-time
Texas rider , soon conquered him. TUe car
nival ended Monday with a grand cowboy
parade and a ball In the evening.

WASHINGTON. Nov. IS. This year's raw
sugar supply of the world surpasses that ot
1S95 , notwithstanding the enormous Cuban
deficit , according to official statistics re
ceived at the Department ot State from
Consul General Karcl of St. Petersburg.
Mr. Karel reports the Russian wheat and
rye shortage will be more than made up by
the Increased beet sugar production , and
adds that since the case Is common to other
European countries , the committee ot Rus
sian ministers officially determined for each
period of production the quantity of sugar
to bo turned out for the sugar factories for
the home market , which this year was
fixed at over 600,000 tons , an excess over last
year of 50.000 tons , and the ministry of
finance has concluded to lower the prices
on account of the cheapening of manu
facture , the Improvement of beet cultivation
and this year's excellent harvest , the new
price being $2.39 per peed of thirty-six
pounds , against $2.44 last year.
The official Russian estimate ot the
world's raw sugar product for this year Is
as follows : Production of beet sugar , 4,900-
000 tons ; production of cane sugar , 2,655,000
tonsstock ; on hand , 1,150000 tons ; total ,
S,765,000 tons. Uist year the corresponding
total was 8,290,609 tons. The estimated con
sumption for the ensuing year Is placed at
