MINEOLA. L. I., July 9. It la not at
all certain that there will be enough evi
dence tor an indictment against Mrs.
Florence Carman, charged with the mur
der of Mrs. Louise Ballcy. This was the
opinion that Assistant District Attorney
Weeks expressed today.
"It la not unlikely," aald the assistant
district attorney, "that when Mrs. Car
man appears on Monday before Coroner
Norton, who will then be acting In the
capacity of Justice of tho peace, she will
be discharged. At that time Mrs. Car

After her husband left Mrs. Carman
broke down In her cell and her condi

authorities were alarmed and called In
the staff physician. She was taken to
the warden's office, where she lay down
on a couch and became quieter after sd
atlves had been given her. She refused,
however, to go to bed.
George Levy, attorney for Mrs. Car
man, said today that he had discovered
two new witnesses whose testimony he
considered extremely valuable. He also
said that ho had Information that two of
the witnesses whose testimony had been

Cantain W J. Broatoh. Has taken It
upon himself to defend the Douglas
county progressives by publishing a state
ment saying The Bee told an untruth
when It pointed out that only thirty of
the seventy-six delegates chosen by the
prbgresslves for the state convention are
registered as progressives. Captain
Broatch likes a quarrel In which there
is lots of accusation of falsehood. How
ever, that does not change tho record.
The card Index of registrations In tho
office of the Douglas county election
commissioner, still shows that only
thirty of the seventy-six delegates, bar
ring the alternates, are registered as pro
gressives. And this In spite of Captain Broatch
and his fulmlnatlon.
Of course. It Is remembered by tho-je
who ever read the law on the subject,
that a "progressive republican" Is not a
"progressive." There Is a difference.
There Is no such party as "progressive
republican," yet a number of the dele
gates chosen by the progressives are reg
istered as "progressive republicans."
But the records are clear. Even the
word, of Captain" Broatch does not stand
against the card Index: In the commis
sioner's office. Some few may have
changed their registration in the last
sixty days, since the card Indox was last
revised. Maybe Captain Broatch has led

Veteran In Tonrney.
No golf tournament In Omaha ever de
veloped no many extra-hole competitions
as did tho second day of play nt tho
Nebraska State Tournament at tho Happy
Hollow cluh yesterday, when five two
somes played one or two extra holes to
decide who should remain In the vsrious
flights In which they were entered.
Around the eighteenth hole, there was
plenty of excitement durlns: the after
noon, .when the.. pairs began to core. In.
Franjc Haje of the Field Club .went
(wenty holes to defeat William Folsom
o the Lincoln County club, , winning
with a fortunate mashle Into tho circus
Clarence Peters went to the nineteenth
hole with Harold Johnson, only to meet
defeat at the hands of the Happy Hollow
cluh player, who played n perfect three
for the hole.
F. L. McCoy beat Charles Dattelle on
the- nineteenth hole, and match betwoen
J. II. Conrud and . K. Denman likewise
went an extra hole. J. R Porter defeated
G. F. Gllmoro at the twentieth hole, after
a match which was practically even dur
ing the entire round.
Perhaps the greatest Interest attached
to the matches of Ram Reynolds and V.
N. hambcrs, and Ralph Poters and C. II.
Rogers, the dark-hoisn from the Miller
Park club. Reynolds had less trouble
than had been anticipated In stowing
Chambers away, taking the two-some 0
up and 5 to play. Peters, likewise won
his match with apparent esse, the final
accounting giving the County club man
the match by up and 3 to play.
Chambers was beaten by the course, not
by his own play, according to the pro
fessionals who watched portions of his
match with Sam Reynolds, whllo the city
champion never weavered In his game,
playing the finish as strong as he did
tho first holes in the morning.
Dnirni n Bnrnrlse,
Phillip Downs, the 19-year-old young
ster of the Field club, occasioned the
greatest surprise of the afternoon, when
he defeated F. H. Gaines, the Country
club veteran, on the eighteenth hole.
Gaines was well onto the flag In two, hut
shot over the hill without going ahead
to ascertain the distance, and as a re
sult, lost the hole and tho match, be.
caiiBe of a short approach shot. Downs
modestly declurcd that the Country club
man was "merely off his game," but the
facts of tho case nre, the youngster
played a strong gamo of consistent golf
throughout the match.
The Championship Kllnrht.
In the championship flight today, four
Field club men are In tho lower bracket,
while In tho upper drawing are two msn
from tho Happy Hollow club, and tilso
two from the Country club.
It Is certain that the Field cluh will
have a man In the finals, but Happy
Hollow and Country club men will have
to fight out the third round as well as
the seml-flnals, for tho honor of going
Into the play for the championship of the
state of Nebraska.
Hale and Hughes, nnd Reynolds and
Downs will fight for the places In the
seml-flnals for the Field club, with the
dop somewhat In favor of Hughes, pres

an excellent game throughout the tourna
ment. Ralph Teters is considered a favorite
In the upper brace of players, but he

The banking and currency committee,

of Mr. Jones, two republicans voted for
an unfavorable report.
The vote enmo nfter a long discus
sion of the testimony given by Mr. Jone
when he appeared before the commltUa
early In tho week.
There was littlo criticism of Mr. Jones
other than that he was a director of
the Harvester company, but sevoral mem
bers nre said to have declared they could
not consclentlour4y approve a man con
ne"ted with a concern now being prose
cuted. Stress was laid on tho fact that soma
of tho acts of the harvester company com
plained of In the government's bill asking;
for Its dissolution were committed sine
April, 1909, when Mr. Jones became a di
rector. Objection to Mr. Warburg so far la
based upon an entirely different reason.
The committee has asked him to appear
and submit to questions nbout his business
connections. He had refused, and tho
question as now viewed by the senate la
whether It should confirm any man who
will accept such an Invitation.
