KIRKMAN STAYS IN PRISON
Disgraced Army Officer's Sentences
Held to Be Consecutive.
TOPEKA, Kan., July 31. Judge
Smith McPherson. of the United States
District Court for the Southern Dis
trict of Iowa, filed an opinion here to
day with the clerk of the Federal Court,
denying an application for a writ of
habeas corpus made by George W.
Klrkman. ex-Captain of the United
States Army, now serving three years
in the Federal prison at Leavenworth,
Kan. The decision Is important as
bearing upon the 'matter of time off
allowed military prisoners for good be
havior. Captain Kirkman was first convicted
of conduct unbecoming an officer and a
gentleman. He was sentenced to' dis
missal from the Army and to serve a
sentence of two years in the Federal

Both orders were approved by Presi

wording of the Judgments failed to
state whether they should be con

consecutive and at the expiration of the
two years' term, less credits for good
conduct, Klrkman applied .to the Fed
eral Court to be discharged on writ
of habeas corpus, his contention being
that the two Judgments were cumula
tive. The court. Judge Pollock presid
ing, discharged the writ and remanded
the prisoner, holding that such judg
ments were consecutive, and in effect
a sentence of imprisonment for three
years. The court conceded that Judg
ments of the civil courts would be con
strued as cumulative, but that judg

Such phrases as "I cannot get 'along;

you will live for me," and "Life is
short, so why not be with the ones we

DENVER, July SL A special to the
Denver Post from Mount Pleasant, Pa.,
Amos R. Rumbaugh met Laura Mat

there on a business trip, and fell des

tell the girl that he was married, and
she did not discover it for many months,
in the meantime he showered costly pres

her. "I will get a divorce and we will
marry," he told her. Miss Matthews ac
cepted his attentions, but told him she
expected some day to marry Charles B.
Coey. Rumbaugh persisted in his atten

business to go to Chicago and visit the
young dramatic student.
Two weeks ago Rumbaugh went to Chi

to his business partner in Mount Pleasant,
saying he was going West and would
probably never return. Then he boarded a
