NOT INSANE, ONLY IN LOVE
Commissioners for the Insane Hare m
Peculiar Cane to Pass
August Doerner, a 17-year-old student
n Union college, the Seventh Day Ad
ventist Institution at College View, near
Lincoln, Neb., waa before the Board of
Commtaloners for the Insane yesterday on
complaint of Julius Korgan, a well-known
farmer living eight miles eaat of Council
Bluffs, who charged young Doerner with
being mentally deranged. The examina
tion before the commlFSioners developed a
most remarkable story, in which religion
and cupld played prominent parts.
Young Doerner caroo to the United States
from Germany, where his father is one of
the most prominent leaders In the Seventh
Day Adventlst church, seventeen months
ago, to take a course of study at Union
college and prepare for the ministry. There
ho met and won the love of three young
women, students at the Institution. The
frequency with which he wooed and won
the hearts of the opposite sex waa cited
in the testimony before the board as one
of his "peculiarities" and evidence of his
being mentally weak.
One of the young women who came under
the spell of the young student was re
moved from the college by her parents and
returned to her home In Kansas. The other
wo whose hearts had been captured by
young Doerner were Miss Lena Korgan,
the 17-year-old daughter of Mr. snd Mrs.
Julius Korgan of this county, and Miss
Lydia Kraus of Tampa, Kan. Both young
women considered themselves engaged to
the youthful preacher.
Last May, Doerner who had been engaged
at the college on a translation ot the Ad
ventlst church doctrine into German, be
came 111 from overwork and waa sent forth
to preach the doctrine and rest. He be
came a guest at the Korgan home, the
family being ardent members ot the
Adventlst faith. He fell sick and his mind ,
became clouded and he suffered from hallu
cinations. He was nursed back to health
by the family and again he and Miss
Korgan plighted their troth and declared
their love for each other. Mr. and Mrs.
Korgan declined to recognize the engage
ment, for several reasona, the principal
one being that the couple were too young. '
Young Doerner returned to Lincoln after
he and Miss Korgan had each sworn to bs
true to one another. On the advice of bla
physician Doerner reated trom bis studies
and sought outdoor employment He found
It In hueklng corn. The manual labor Im
proved hla health.
In tha meantime Miss Lydia Kraus had
learned of young Doerner'a attachment for
MIes Korgan and she began to make
trouble. She told her friends that the
young corn-busking student had threatened
to kill both her and himself, and that she
dared not leave the house without a guard.
Miss Kraus came to spend the Christmas
holidays at the Korgan home and ahe told
of young Doerner'a threats. Mr. and Mra.
Korgan became fearful that possibly Doer
ner might kill their daughter whe,n re
fused permission to marry her, and as the
young msn was expected to spend the boll
days with them, Mr. Korgan decided to
place his case before the commissioners
tor the Insane. He Died an Information
against the young man, but withdrew it
the next day at the solicitation of mem
bers of the family. Doerner persisted In
his declaration that he would marry Miss
Korgan, whether the parents wished It or
not, and. It was alleged, threatened that
If prevented he would kill the girl and him.

PARTLY SUSTAINS AUDITOR
State Executive Council Issues Statement
on Insurance Examination.
TEACHERS FINISH UP THEIR LABORS
Incomlnar Andltor Is Checking I p the
Securities In Possession of Pres
ent Incumbent Change
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, Jan. 2. (Special.) The
states executive council this evening Issued
a statement in relation to the controversy
of the Insurance companies with the pres
ent state auditor in regard to the examina
tion of eastern Insurance companies and
the fees charged therefor. The statement
only partially exonerates the state auditor.
An opinion by Attorney General Mullan
waa Included, In which the attorney gen
eral holds that the law is not exactly clear
aa to whether the state auditor has the
authority to make the examinations with
out an order from the council, but he holds
that under the head of foreign Insurance
companies Is meant all those not in Iowa.
In regard to fees, he holds that the state
auditor must make a report on examina
tions and fees and make It a part of his
official record. This has never been done.
State Auditor Merrlam presented a letter
from Secretary Shaw, who was a member
of the executive council when Merrlam
first went Into office, In which Shaw states
that he recalls the discussion of the matter
and the verbal authority lven Merrlam.
This Is verified by ex-Secretary Dobson.
Mr. Merrlam made the statement to the
council that he has a record of his exam
inations and it is a part of his office record
and he will Include a statement ot fees
received. With thjs statement the matter
will drop. The auditor Is censurable for
not having mads a public record ot his
examinations before and of the fees re
ceived. No action will He against the state
auditor by the state or Its officials and tho
matter of the reasonableness ot fees Is for
the companies to decldo.
Teachers Association Adjourns.
The closing day of the State Teachers'
association meeting was without Incident.
The feature was the annual address of
State Superintendent Barrett, in which ho
tevlewed the progress of educational work
in the state during the year. He presented
satlstics Indicating that while the average
monthly wages of male teachers shows an
Increase, because ot the smaller number of
those who are engaged, the wages of female
teachers show a decrease. He insisted that
the state must pay higher wages If the
schools arr to be kept going. He recom
mended tne Indiana plan of regulating the
wagea by state law, by a system of fixing
It In proportion to the grade of the teacher
as shown on her certificate. Mr. Barrett
highly commended the plan of rural school
consolidation and the transports tlon ot
pupils, which Is' gaining ground rapidly In
the atate, and each year sees a larger num
ber of schools consolidated. In regard to
manual training In schools, he recom
mended that a course be provided for train
ing teachers In this work at the State Nor
mal school. The most important legisla
tion ever enacted by any one legislature
was by the last one1 In Iowa. The com
pulsory education law was the most Im
portant, and almost of equal Importaneo
was the one relating to normal work In
academies and high schools, He sharply
denounced the tendency to continue educa
tional work along the line of partisanship
and said that competent educators and su
perintendents should be retained as long
as they are useful. '
In the state association meeting, after
the election of officers, as recommended by
the committee last night, there were re
ports on the legislation accomplished and
a general report on resolutions. The reso
lutions favor efforts for better salaries.
The effort made to have the educational
council abolished failed and It will eon.

AGAINST THE XEW I JSIFOHM.
Rearnlar Army Officers Hare Several
Grounds of Complaint.
There are further complaints, some ot
them well grounded, from army officers re
garding the new uniform regulations, ssys
the Army and Navy Journal. In many
cases the heavy outlay required by the re
cent change has been a positive hardship,
which would be still further Increased by
the additional modifications which have
been proposed. It is true that these pro
posed modifications are not extensive, but
they would Involve an aggregate outlay of
large proportions from officers who have al
ready been compelled to spend large sums
under the new regulations. Whether the
suggested changes are desirable is not the
question at all. The point we urge Is that
any change which Involves expense to offi
cers who have so recently been required to
expend large sums for uniforms Is unjust.
It would be only fair to stipulate when a
radical change, like the recent one, Is made
In uniform, that a clothing allowance should
be granted to cover the cost of any modi
fications ordered within a period of say
two or three years. This Is far better than
any attempt to underbid the tailors by
providing a portion of the uniform through
the Quartermaster's department.
To insist upon changes at the expense of
officers In a uniform only a few months after
its adoption Is Inconsiderate and unfair.
Many corporations employing large num
bers of men give eacb man his first or sec
ond uniform either free or pay part of the
cost ot It, and the emulation of their ex
ample by Uncle Sam would be an eminently
creditable proceeding. Major General Cor
bin and others who contend that young
officers should not marry unless possessed
of resources in cddltion to their army pay
or until they have advanced to the rank of
captain or major may find the uniform
problem an aid to the general adoption of
their views. The young lieutenant who Is
required to plank down some hundreds of
dollars for a uniform outfit without knowing
bow soon he may be compelled to hand over
additional cash for chinges In his toggery
may pause to consider whether, under those
circumstances and with his slender pay,
he haa really any right to contract an
alliance that would still further increase
his annual outlay for clothing.
Another point In the regulations to which
objection is made, Snd we think Justly, Is
that they have taken away the distinctive
letters "U. 8." from the collar of the uni
form coat. In place of them appears the
national coat-of-arma, which is all right In
Its way,, but it is not nearly as distinctive
of the regular service i as the letters "U.
8." Several officers have written to urge
that the letters be restored, and we heartily !
concur In their views.
ROYALTY RISES EARLY.
Klnar Edward Breakfasts at Seven and
the Kaiser Even Earlier.
While the great mass of his subjects are
still comfortably asleep in bed King Edward
has risen and Is seated at his desk, deep in
the consideration ot state documents; for,
though his majesty does not lie down with
the lamb, he gets up with the milkman.
It ia always after midnight before the
king is In bed, but by 7 o'clock he is astir.
Very often he rises a couple ot hours earlier
in order to keep abreast with the enormouB
quantity of work which presses on him. At
Windsor he usually attends the early serv
ice at St. George's, and has accomplished
the day's work of an ordinary man before
most ot his subjects have finished break
fast. This spectacle of the king, up and doing
at 6 a. m. while so many of hla subjects
stroll leisurely into their offices five hours
later, is notable and suggestive. Americans
assign as one reason for their marvelous
progress that New Yorkers are at business
at 8:30 or 9 a. m., while Londoners are a
full hour later.
There are no harder workers than mod
ern monarrhs, and they, at all events, ap
preciate the value of the morning hours.
The German emperor breakfasts punctually
every morning at 7 o'clock. Very often be
has been uj for hours.
Not very long ago the colonel ot the First
Dragoons turned up twenty-five minutes
late at the a. m. parade. To his horror
be found the kaiser waiting with the regi
ment. Without a word the emperor mo
tioned the officer to his post and watched
the drill In silence, but on that evening the
colonel received from his Imperial master
a neat little alarm clock.
Soon after 8 a. m. the emperor Is at the
foreign office, In consultation with Count
von Buelow. His ally, the king of Italy,
la likewise an early riser, and requires his
officers and servants to be the same.
Boon after his accession he mi.de a round
of morning visits to the government offices.
At each he arrived at tho stated time of
opening, and smoked cigarettes while
waiting events. When the early bird of the
clerka arrived an hour late he found, not
the worm, but the king, awaiting him.
Very plainly were the heads of departments
informed that the king required strict
punctuality and attendance to business.
One result of this sction of Victor Emman
uel's Is that the Italian civil service esti
mates have been considerably reduced by
dismissing clerks whom regular hours ren
The czar ot Russia ia another of ths 7
o'clock breakfast brigade, while the Em
peror Francis Joseph it astir even earll-r.
It must be a very early riser who would
get the better of the mikado. The ruler of
Britain's new ally holds his councils of
state at 4 a. m.

FILES CHARGE AGAINST THE BURLINGTON
Afttrma Points West of Kansaa City
Are Favored by Lower Tariff on
Live Stork Hilled Thronh
' to Chicago.
WASHINGTON, Jan. . The Chicago,
Burllucton & Qulncy railroad Is made tho
defendant in a complaint filed with the
Interstate Commerce commission by Gilbert
Barr ot Kcaruey, Mo., who alleges tbo
exaction of an unreasonable and unjust j
tariff on lire stork. The complainant Is a
live stock shipper and says that since Oc
tober 4 lust the railroad has compelled him
to pay for tho transportation of live stock
In carload lota from Kearney to Chicago
23'4 ceuts per 100 pounds, although a rea- I
sonable charge Is 12 cents per 100 pounds.
The complainant charges that during the
time mentioned the defendant has bad In !
force on Its lines a rate of 23Vs cents per !
100 pounds, applying upon live stork orlg- j
lnatlng at Kansas City and shipped In car- j
load lots to Chicago, and another rate of j
12 cents per 100 pounds, called a propor
tional rate, applying between Kansas City
and Chicago on live stock originating at
points west of Kansas City and shipped In
carload lots to Kansas City In the first
instance, and upon which the through rate
from originating point to Chicago would
not be less than 234 cents per 100 pounds.
The complainant alleges that, although
the 12-ccnt rate is published as a pro
portional rate, the defendant still allows
shippers of live stock to use it without
reference to the origin of their shipments
and regardless of whether ratea have been
paid thereon from points ot origin to Kan
sas City, entitling such shippers to the
proportional rate from Kansas City to Chi
cago. According to the complaint, the defend
ant, by compelling the complainant to pay
the higher rate, while exacting from other
shippers for a like service the low rate, ia
subjecting the complainant and the locality
from which be makes shipments to undue
and unreasonable prejudice and disadvan
tage and la violating the Interstate com
merce law. An Investigation and a repara
tion tor the charges said to have been un
lawfully collected are asked.
