Boy Kadel, a young farmer of York town
ship, while hunting Tuesday afternoon near
the town of Mlndan, made th discovery
of th decomposed body of a man lying by
th std of a haystack. The body waa di
vested of all clothing with the exception
of a hlrt and ault of underwear, and th
closest search failed to reveal any other
clothing In th Immediate vicinity. The
body wa completely covered with hay, and
thla fact, taken In conjunction with the
absence of clothing, lead to th belief that
the body may have been placed there. The
advanced state of decomposition Indicated
that the man had been dead for at least
thirty day. An examination of th body
failed to show any marks of violence.
Justice of th Peace Mlnnehan and Under

during, th evening it was-' Interred. The

Pierce Pleads

AUSTIN, Tex., Deo. I After f ling a
plea of Immunity on the grounds that the
statute of limitations had operated against
the prosecution, attorneys for. H. Clay
Pierce, head of tho Waters-Pierce OH com
pany, made a second important move late
today In their efforts to bring to quick
termination the trial of their client on a
Charge of false swearing. The second move
was the objection raised to the lntroduc
tlon of the affidavit on which the charge
Is based.
The objection to the affidavit Is based

Hollas; by Attorney General Pots New
I'hase on Sectloa of Crim
inal Law.
PIERRE. S. D., Deo. t (Special.) Attor
ney General Clark has given an opinion on
request of States Attorney Anderson of
Day county, which, If sustained by the
courts, will be a hard blow to Illegal liquor
selling and other offenses against the law
which carry with fines for such offenses,
costs of th case. In that county a con
viction was sequred In a case of Illegal
liquor selling and th penalty was a fine
ot M and costs, the total amount being
$129.60. The question raised In his query
by States Attorney Anderson was the power
of th court to Include Imprisonment for
failure to pay costs as well aa for failure
to pay the fine Imposed. The attorney gen
eral. In a lengthy opinion on the subject,
holds that the weight of authorlty-cn th
question Is that such penalty can be im
posed. He holds that imprisonment for
costs would In no way violate th bill of
rights In th state constitution, and that
such aotlon Would b valid. In a great
many petty criminal cases In this state the
party convicted serves out his fine, .but Is
released as soon as that Is done, on the
theory that he cannot be compelled to serve
Jail time for costs. But this stand of th
attorney general puts the situation In a dif
ferent light.
Heating ftew t'apltot.
PIERRE, S. D., Dec. 1 (Special.) The
heating plant at th new capllol ha been
started, and the structure Is now being
steam heated. There appears to b a ques
tion whether the state or the contraotor
is to stand the expenses of heating, which
will be settled at a meeting of the capltol
commission next week. In the meantime
the state la paying for tha coal As the
heating of th new building will make
about three month difference In the time
of Its completion, and all parties concerned
desire to get the work finished aa early
as possible. It Is not likely that th ques
tion will b hard to adjuat when the com
mlasloa and contractor meet to talk It
over. .
