FAIL TO ANSWER OWN QUERIES
Iowa Law Examiners Differ aa to
Replies Stndente Shenld
IOWA CITT, la., June lWSpeclal.)
The senior laws of the State university of
Iowa are in a much perturbed state of
mind. The State Board of Law Examiners
has been holding a session with them for
four days. They have about twenty seniors
whom they have not yet decided to pass
and decision on the question bids fair to be
delayed until Tuesday.
Attorney General Mullln and Judge Block
of Davenport are In favor of plucking
about twenty of the seniors. The other
members of the board favor passing them
all. This position has resulted from a dif
ference In the five members of the board
in marking questions. One marked a paper
68. Another took the paper up and gave
On a ntmber of the questions the board
Itself Is divided. One mooted question Is,
"A man enters a house in the night time
with intent to steal, through an open chlm
ney. Has he committed burglary?" Part
of the board holds that a burglary has not
been committed because there has been no
act of breaking. They have authorities
who agree with them. Others hold that the
fraudulent act- of entering through the
chimney supplies the act of breaking, and
here again these law examiners have au
thorlty, Blackstone among others.
Another question Is: "A man works for
another under a verbal contract for two
years. He completes his term of service.
Can he recover for his services?" This
question causes difference because of a
different interpretation. If It means re
covery on the contract alone, the answer
Is negative, but some members of the
board Interpret It to mean whether any
recovery at all can be had, which means
an affirmative 'action, recovery ' being pos
sible for the real value of his services.
The members of the board of examiners,
Attorney Oeneral Mullln, Judge W. S. Ken
yon of Fort Dodge, Judge Henderson of
Indlanola, Judge Block of Davenport and
E. C. Ebersole of Toledo, have been spend
ing their nights up to midnight, and most
of their days. In going over the examina
tion papers. The final oral quiz la to be
held on Monday afternoon.

DES MOINES, June 14. (Special.) It la
planned that a survey party shall start
west from Des Moines In a few days to look
over the ground for the route of the elec
tric railroad from Des Moines to Omaha.
The organisation of the company that will
build the line has been perfected. J. A.
Nash of Audubon is president and H. H
Polk of this city general manager. Mr
Polk Is the president of the Interurban line
that runs from Des Moines to Colfax. The
executive committee of the Western Iowa
Interurban company has been authorised
to direct that the preliminary survey be
made at once. The company will expend
about an average of $1,000 a county In this
survey and upon it the estimates off ex
pense will be made. It Is understood that
all arrangements are made for financing
the road in case the route Is found feasable.
The survey will begin here and run north
west Into Dallas county.

The case of the State of Iowa against the
Adams Express Company, from Madison
county, that was last December decided In
favor of the state, will be appealed to the

against the American Express company
from Adams county. J. W. Wlllett of Tama

Ing the appeal In the Tama county case
and John A. Gulber of Wlnterset In the
other case. Both cases Involve the ques
tlon of the right of express companies to
transport liquors on the C. O. D. basis,
The Iowa court holds that this Is contrary
to the state laws and to so hold Is not In
violation of the interstate commerce law.
The Adams company's case has some fea
tures a little different from the American
company's case and both will he appealed
together. A firm of attorneys In Cincinnati
representing brewery Interests will argue
the case In the higher court.
Depravity is Disclosed.
A sad case of depravity which Is agitat
ing East Des Moines will soon be aired In
the courts. One J. W. Donovan, aged 67
years, of excellent family, but broken down
with drink. Is alleged to have been enticing
children Into his barn for immoral pur

Involving. accusations made by Stella Han

lost named child made complaint and re'
vealed the state of affairs. Donovan was
In the etate Hospital for Inebriates at one
time, but was returned and for some time
Is said to have been misleading little chil
dren. It Is expected an effort will be made
to have him declared. Insane to prevent his
punishment In the penitentiary. . He lived

Dying? Felon Declares Inaeoenee.
Christina Behrens, the Davenport woman
who hanged herself In the state prison at
Anamosa, always claimed that she was en
tirely Innocent and that she was the victim
of another's crime. She was sentenced to
ljfe imprisonment by Judge Waterman,
who had afterwards expressed the belief
that she was more sinned against than
sinning. She claimed she had been terribly
abused by her worthless and drunken hue
band until she was compelled to make her
own living, and that afterwards, under
promise of doing better he induced her to
return to live with him, but returned to
his old life. She claimed that a man who
had been Indicted Jointly with her was
wnony responsible for the poisoning of
Kenrens. But her case has been at one
time presented to the legislature and the
committee that investigated reported ad
versely to her plea. She had become de
spondent under her life sentence and her
death was no surprise.

AID ASKED FOR FLOOD VICTIMS
Kansna City, Kan., Issnes Strong; An
neal to Generons Pablle to
KANSAS CITY, June 14. The relief com
mittee of Kansas City, Kan., has given
out the following appeal:
In connection with relief for the flood
sufferers In Kansas City, Kan., It is most
important mat ine people ot tne I nuea
States should understand that there are
two Kansas Cltys Kaneas City In Mis
souri, with about 280,000 people, and Kan
sas City In Kansas, with over 60,000 people,
adjoining the former city on the west ana
separated from it by the state Una; that
each city has a separate organisation for
the relief of Its flood sufferers, and that In
Kansas City, Kan., an area Including 23,000
people by the state census of March, 1903,
has been swept by a rushing flood of from
ten to thirty feet In depth, which has car
ried away over one-third of the houses In
this district, has almost ruined another
third, and that In the entire district the
merchandise, household goods and clothing
have been either washed away or almost
totally ruined by a ten days' submersion
and a deposit in all buildings ot from two
to four feet of mud.
With the falling of the water, employ
ment to a large number has been tj'ven
and conditions are much ImproveJ. There
remain, however, many thousands depend
ent on charity for shelter, food, clothing
and the most meager outfit of cooking
utensils and furniture. These cannot be
supplied without outside aid and unless It
Is furnished to a large amount the most
dire suffering and widespread sickness and
death must result. No more worthy or
urgent cause can be presented than thtit of
the flood sufferers of Kansas City, Kan.,
and we appeal to the generous people of
the country to aid in supplying these press
ing needs of our stricken people. Money
and supplies should be sent to T. B. Gil
bert, mayor of Kansas City, Kan
By vote or tne committee.
