Out of 1500 corporations of all sorts
that have tried to do business In Kan

sufficient strength to allow the Kansas
farmers to make Investments and have
received certificates which will permit
them to get capital. These facts came
to light when J. N. Dolley, State BankJ
Commissioner, made his biennial report
to the Governor of the workings of his
department. Mr. Dolley is the origi
nator and has charge of the enforce
ment of the Kansas "blue sky law," the
only law of Its kind In the country. It
was through the operation of this law

Under the law each corporation that
desires to sell stock or other securities
in Kansas must first obtain a permit
from the State Banking Department,
which has authority to examine the
company and see whether or not In
vestors have any chance of getting
their money back. In 20 months the
law has been In operation 1500 com

HUSBAND IS SUSPECTED
Former Morganatic Wife of Late
King of Belgium Causes Talk
in Vienna by Recent Ef
forts to Entrap Spouse.
VIENNA. Jan. 28. The efforts of
Baroness Vaughan, morganatic wife of
the late King Leopold of Belgium, to
entrap her present husband, M. Dur
rteux, have caused much amusement in
Vienna, as well as in other European
capitals where the Baroness Is well
known and much talked about.
The Baroness went to the Palace of
Justice and complained that her hus
band was taking women into their
home. The Judge issued a warrant
and sent several detectives in charge
of a commissary of police to the house.
The officers demanded and obtained
admittance. Durrieux declared that he
was alone. The detectives did not find
any women, but they picked up shoes
and stockings, which they pocketed.
Then they searched the house and
found a woman in the servants' quar
ters. Her fingers were covered with
Jewels. She insisted that she was one
of the maids.
This was a poser, and the situation
was not simplified when the police com
pelled her to dress and forced her to
put on a pair of shoes which were
found in the cupboard, in which she
was unable to walk. The detectives,
believing that they had secured suffi
cient evidence, restored the shoes and
The Baroness Vaughan a short time
ago instituted suit for divorce against
M. Durrieux, but the papers were with
drawn and the pair were reconciled.
GIRLS ARE TOO PRETTY
RAILWAY GATEMEX FORGET TO
rUXCH THEIR TICKETS.
Illinois Central Employes 1o Be
Transferred to Places Where
Commuters Are Strangers.
CHICAGO, Feb. 2. Because suburban
agents and gatemen on . the Illinois
Central Railroad have become so friend
ly with the pretty girls that they some
times forget to punch their commuta
tion tickets, orricials of the road are
about to transfer a number of the
agents and gatemen to fields where
they are not so well acquainted with
the lassies who make regular trips
over the suburban lines.
It Is the old, old story the other sex
is not conducive to Increasing the
weight of the treasury coffers.
J. H. Brinkerhoff, superintendent,
characterized the contemplated changes
simply as disciplinary ones. He was in
clined to scoff at the idea that pretty
girls have anything to do with it. He
says If the order goes Into effect at all
it will be for the purpose of lessening
the possibility of collusion between
agents and gatemen.
Upon the station platforms It Is whis
pered about that some of the girls have
been commuters so long and some of
the gatemen at the turnstile stations
have been at the same stations so long
that friedshlps have formed. It is sug
gested that possibly the gatemen or
agents try to lighten the financial bur
dens of the pretty girls.
COUNTY GETS INTEREST
Public Funds Credited With $89.35
For the first time In the history of

Court yesterday, covering January's
business snowea eninrs crmuus

County Clerk Coffey Is making good
his campaign promise to conduct the
office on a flat salary basis.
The amount credited for interest was
JS9.S5 and half the raturalizatlon fees
amounted to approximately 80. mak
ing a total of practically $170. The
interest was paid by the Northwestern
National Bank, in which Mr. Coffey
carried the greater part of the money
coming officially into his hands during
January. It is probable that a sys
tem will be adopted of carrying check
ing accounts in several banks and sta
tionary or fairly stationary amounts
in a single bank, as this would result
In larger interest receipts. The rate
paid is 2 per cent.
The Supreme Court decided recently
that the County Clerk is entitled to
half the naturalization fees, the other
half going to the Department of Com
merce and Labor of the United States
Government. On top of this, District
Attorney Evans handed down an opin
ion that in such event the County
Clerk must pay the salary of the dep
uty In charge of the work. F. G.
Wilde, the deputy in charge of this
work, draws a salary of J115 a month,
which Is and always has been paid by
the county and, according to actual
records which he has kept, devotes
considerably less than half his time
Mr. Wilde" estimates that the County
Clerk's share of the naturalization fees
this year will amount to at least
$2500. showing that the county will
make money by accepting this amount
and paying his salary In full. Instead
of askirg Mr. Coffey to keep it and
pay half the salary, an arrangement
which had been suggested. Half his
remuneration for the year would be
$6Si0, and by paying this amount the
county will receive in return, accord
ing to the estimate, about 2500, or
make a clear profit of approximately
"The interest amounts also will be
larger as time goes on," said Mr. Cof
fey. "You must remember that I did
not take office until January 6 and
;bat the 89.35 credited is interest onls
from that Sate to the end of the month.
In other banks beside the Northwest
ern National' my balances were too
small to make it worth while paying
interest on, but every cent so collected
is to go to the county."

Leaving Home of Binger Hermann,
Apparently to Attend Church,
She Disappears In Direction
of City Reservoirs.
ROSEBURG. Or, Feb. 2. (Special.)
Leaving the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Binger Hermann, where she was em
ployed in nursing Madge Miller, this
morning, with the apparent intention
of attending church, Agnes Mannion,
a nurse, has disappeared and all efforts
to find her tonight failed. Miss Man
nion was a Catholic and, according to
custom, left the Hermann home this
morning and started to church. Noth
ing was thought of the incident at the
time and not until 4 o'clock P. M. did
members of the family suspect she had
wandered away while suffering from a
temporary spell of nervousness, to
which she was subject.
The officers were notified, and it
was discovered that she had not
reached the church. Further inquiry
led to the discovery that the girl was
last een at 10 A. M, walking in the
direction of the thickly timbered dis
tricts east of town. In fact, one per
son from whom the officers inquired
said he -was well acquainted with the
girl and conversed with her as she
passed his residence.
Actions Deemed Peeullar.
This man said she acted peculiarly
and at first shunned recognition. Fol
lowing this clew, the officers dis
patched a posse of 50 men to the hills,
where tracks resembling those of a
woman were found leading over a
steep hill and In the direction of the
city reservoirs. These tracks led the
officers some distance here and there
along the side of the hill and finally
terminated at the fence enclosing the
reservoirs. At this point all trace of
the "missing girl was lost.
Tonight one posse is searching the
hills west of town, while another Is
dragging the reservoirs through fear
that she has committed suicide.
Miss Mannion formerly lived at Port
land and came to Roseburg about 18
months ago. She was at first employed
at Mercy Hospital, but later accepting
employment at the Hermann home. She
Is about 23 years old and, from infor
mation gathered tonight, was once
treated at a sanitarium for a nervous
ailment. It is said that she once-wandered
away while living at Portland.
Parents Live in Portland.
The address of her father and step
mother, who live at Portland, could
not be ascertained tonight. When the
girl left the Hermann home she wore
a house dress and had no hat. It is
said Miss Mannion had been very ner
vous of late and on one occasion told
members of the family that it would
prove useless to search for her in the
event she wandered away.
Sheriff Quin tonight sent for the
state bloodhounds, which will be placed
on the girl's trail early tomorrow.
DAUGHTER GIVES BLOOD
TRANSFUSION OPERATION . MAY
SAVE FATHER'S LIFE.
Man Is Found Suffering From As
phyxiation and Extraordinary
Measures Are Necessary.
SAN FRANCISCO. Feb. 2. (Special.)
At the Central Emergency Hospital,
Saturday, a daughter gave her blood
in an effort to save the life of her
father, near death from gas asphyxia
tion. Dr. Alanson Weeks, chief sur
geon of the emergency hospital serv
ice, and his assistant took the blood
from the healthy woman and turned it
Into the veins of the dying man. They
believe their operation will be a suc
cess. Mrs. Fannie Norton is the daughter.
Her father is Samuel R. Maxwell, a
tinner. Maxwell's son, Charles, came
here from San Josb today to meet his
father. Reaching his apartment, he
found the door locked and received no
response to his knockings. The door
was forced and the elder Maxwell was
found unconscious on his bed, the room
filled with gas from an open Jet.
Artificial respiration and saline In
jections, the two common methods of
bringing about resuscitation in gas
asphyxiation cases, were resorted to
without success. Blood transtusion, it
was decided, was the only hope of sav
ing the man's life. Father and daugh
ter were placed on the operating table
and the operation was begun.

CHURCH GOES INTO COURT
Order Sought to Compel Teaching of
Doctrine of Immersion.
SAN JOSE. Cal, Feb. 2. Controversy
over Immersion and other doctrinal
points which split the congregation of
the First Baptist Church of Los Gatos
is tho cause of a suit just instituted
In the Superior Court to enjoin the
pastor. Rev. Robert Whltaker, from
using the church for any purpose other
than teaching the doctrine of the Bap
tist faith and the New Hampshire con
fession, which specifies immersion. The
plaintiffs allege they are the legal
board of directors of the church cor
poration. Whltaker and a new board
of trustees are defendants.
Whltaker was the Socialist candidate
for Congress in the Eighth California
District In the last general election. He
and the new board are charged with
having formed a new and distinct re
liglous Bociety, teaching a different
doctrine from the New Hampshire con
fession and, It i declared, that the
society refuses to require the accept
ance of any creed or articles of faith,
holding also that baptism by Immersion
is not a prerequisite to the Christian
