Judge .Mncy decided yesterday that there
hall not be organized at the present time an
Independent district for the town ot Woston.
Lent summer a special election was held for
thu purpoHo of voting on the question , and
the proposition carried so nearly unanimously
that thcro were only two votes recorded
against It. The trustees , however , foiled , or
refused , to glvo the required legal notice
calling a mee-Mug of thu directors to prop
erly organize the imw district , and the mem.
l > crs of thu board who were favorable to It
and some of the taxpayers appealed to the
district court for a writ ot mandamus to com
pel the recreant mcmbera to discharge their
duties. The application was set for hearing
yesterday , and the evidence- Indicated a con
dition ofana Irs that did not warrant Judge
Macy In Issuing the writ. He denied It upon
the grounds that the board had not properly
defined the boundarl'ti of the new district
before submitting the question to the voters.
Another election will bo ordered and thu de
fect cured.

In connection with the failure of the Cars
County bank , His attorneys submitted a
number of affidavits In presenting the mo
tion for a continuance to Judge Macy In the
district court , and they appeared sufllclently
strong to Justify the court In sustaining the
motion. One of the affidavits alleged that
his daughter was lying at the point of death
without hope of recovery , and the attorneys
maintained that It would be Inhuman and
needlessly cruel to tear the fathfr from the
bedside ot his dying child. Other affidavits
showed that the health of Dlckerson himself
was so frail that the strain of the trial
would result In death. The case was takfn
from the calendar and continued until next

turned out to be forged. The check was
presented by a young woman who appeared
to be 25 years of ageauil who possessed an
Intellectual countenance and a ladylike per
sonality. Last week the grand Jury Indicted
Miss Anna Hanuer , yho lives with her
parents In Red Oak-fih'd iollows the profes
sion of teaching musc , fqr forging and pass
ing a forged check. pJhe fase was called for
trial Tuesday and three days were consumed
In taking evidence and In the arguments ot
oi'nsd. When It was learned that Smith
McPherson , one ofthe most eminent law-
jers in thp state , had been employed by the
prosecutors , public Interest was aroused.
County Attorney iMllls Is himself an able
prosecutor , and surprise was expressed on
ovrry hand that It was thought nec-
easjry to employ expensive * outside
assistance. Later ' this sentiment de
veloped Into a well defined and
cpenly expressed public opinion that there
was a personal enmity behind the effort to
send a young woman who has heretofore
borne an unapproachable character to the
penitentiary. Witnesses for the state swore
to having ecen Miss Han nor at Elliott at
the time designated' ' In the Indictment , while
fully as many for the defense testified to
having seen her at the same time near Red
Oak. Rumors ot all kinds passed around the
streets and after the first day many ot the
society women of Red Oak were found seated
In the court room and sympathy for the
unfortunate girl and Indignation for those
who were going to such extreme measures
'to deprive her ot her character and liberty
were openly expressed. That somebody forged
and passed the check and that It was a
young woman who did It very few doubt ,
bit ) rib effort Is made to conceal the belief
that aeldo frorfi any desire to punish who
ever committed the crime there Is some
hidden motive far wishing to place Miss
Hanner behind the bars.
This evening the streets are crowded with
people awaiting the verdict of the Jury and
nothing else Is discussed.

DBS MOINES , Sept. 18. ( Special Tele
gram. ) Residents on Grand avenue , the
fashionable street of the city , including many
of the most wealthy popple In town , have
united forces end will bring a suit to test
the legality of the annexation law of eight
years ago , when DCS Molnes annexed a large
number of suburban towns. If the action
succeeds It will dismember the city and
re-establish the original municipalities. The
occasion for the movement Is the disaffection
ot the property owners on the avenue because -
cause of the city's action In ordering a largo
amount of paving several years ago. The
matter got Into the courts and after long
delays the supreme court held that the con
tracts must bo carried out , although the
price was excessive. The constitutionality
of the annexation law was questioned In this
suit. The state supreme court held that the
law was unconstitutional and Irregular , but
ruled that It could not now be set aside
because of the requirements of public policy.
The expectation Is that In federal court , to
which the case will now be transferred , th&
question of public policy will not be taken
Into consideration and that the annexation
will be declared Invalid , City officials are
greatly concerned , as previous suits have
developed serious weaknesses in the annex
ation proceedings and thcro \ llttlo doubt
that It could bo set aside If a court would
leave out of consideration the question of
public policy. * .

WASHINGTON , Sept. 18. Secretary Algcr
Is now engaged In an attempt to solve the
question of hew to get supplies Into the
Klondike gold regions and thereby prevent
the threatened starvation of many miners.
The great Yukon river , which has formed
the main reliance ot the miners an a means
of getting their supplies up to Dawson , Is
without doubt already closed to navigation
by boats and the mountain pusses via Chll-
koot are almost Impassable , The problem
Is a hard one , but It In believed by the sec
retary that by means of a novel character
transportation for supplies Into the gold
country may bo provided , even In the midst
of an Alaskan winter. Ho has opened a
correspondence Indirectly with a Chicago in
ventor who makes a locomotive sled , de
signed originally for use In logging camps ,
but which It Is hoped may bo readily adapted
to the navigation of the Yukon -when It is
troton thickly. With a few of these ma
chines placed on the river It Is hoped that
a sufficient supply of food and other nccec-
nary stores may bo carried up the Yukon to
relieve all distress among the miners. The
secretary has already had some experience
with this kind of locomotive , so that the
scheme Is not EO radical an experiment as
It would at first thought seem to be. When
engaged In lumbering In the northwest ho
tried the engine practically and found tint
It was capable of pulling many tons of logs
on sleds at a good speed , oven as high as
twelve miles an hour , Tlio engine Is boxed
In llko a freight car and the engineer and

WASHINGTON. Kept , is. General Fltz-
hugh Leo , consul general to Cuba , had a
long consultation with the president at the
White house today. It was the first time
General Lee had seen Mr. McKlnley slnco
the former's return ) to this country about a
fortnight ago. He saw the president by
special appointment and all visitors were ex-
eluded during the progress of the confer
ence except Secretary Algcr , who came over
from the War department and remained un
til after General Lee's departure.
The conference was a long one , lasting al
most one hour. General Lee fully reviewed
the situation In Cuba and explained at
length all points upon which either the
president or Secretary Algor asked for In
formation. General Leo gave his own vle
very freely to the president , but after the
Interview was very reticent about the na
ture of the report he had made. He said
the president had not given him an outline
ot his policy. It Is evident , however , that
the president U deeply Impreiiud with the
critical character of the situation as de
scribed by Geuerjl Lee , us It Is understood
that at the conference he strongly urged
Consul General Lep to retain his nfUce. at
least for the present , and to return
to Havana at his earliest conven
ience. As It hat ) been strongly Inti
mated for fcvcrnl mouths that ex-Congress
man Aldrlch would succeed General Lee at
Havana and that the latter probably would
not return , the president's action today Is
construed to mean that he thinks It Inadvis
able to make a change at this juncture.
General Lee left hero this afternoon for
Covington , Va. , but before his departure ad
mitted that he would return to Cuba as soon
as ho had arranged lin ! private affairs , prob
ably about the middle of October.
In private conversation with close personal
friends General Lee has expressed himself
vigorously as to the situation In Cuba and
has been very emphatic In his condemnation
of some of General Weyler's methods.

Woman may crown
herself with good

By so doing she will
insure her own at

Health is the
most glorious
crown that n woman may wear. To wear it
she must take proper care of herself , and
see to it that the delicate organs that ore
distinctly feminine are always healthy and
strong' . Thousands of women fall short of
good health in this one respect , and as a
result soon become but wrecks of Hjeir
former selves. A woman cannot long- retain
her general health who is Miflcrinp from
weakness and disease of the organs that
make wifehood and motherhood possible.
Dr. Pierce's ' 37avorite Prescription acta
directly on these organs. It makes them
well and strong. It prepares a woman to be
