today that Fisher had sworn vengeance.
Two Shots Take Effect.
Mr. Stewart was repairing a fenoe

fired twice, the first bullet striking the

second shot was the one believed to
be fatal. He fell unconscious, but re

fours to Copperfield, when the search
was started at once. Mr. Stewart be

being put on the train and was thought
to be dying.
Sheriff Rand and District Attorney
Godwin arrived here at 7:30 tonight
and after visiting the scene of the
crime began organization of the posse.
There have been no arrests and at
present the only person being sought
is Ed Fisher. There Is no evidence
against him except that he is missing
tonight and that he is known to have
been unfriendly to Mr. Stewart.
Wonderful Vitality Shown.
The wounded man Is a big, power

POVERTY VOWS UPHELD
DECISION AGAINST ROHAN CATHO
LIC ORDERS REVERSED RT COURT.
Appeal to Washington Taken When Rel
atives of Priest Get Decision Over'
Church for Property.
WASHINGTON, June 22. The Su
preme Court today reversed the. decision
or the Eighth United States Circuit
Court of Appeals, which held that the
vows of poverty in t Roman Catholic
orders were void, because against pub
lic policy. .
The point arose in the case of Au
gustln Wirth. a member of the Order
of St. Benedict for 60 years, who died
while serving as a priest in charge of
the parish of the German Roman Catho.
lie Church at Springfield, Minn. He
had taken a vow of poverty to turn
all his property over to the order and
all that he might thereafter possess in
return for his support and education.
On his death he was possessed of
more than $5000, received from several
copyrighted books written by him.
Wirth's nephews and nieces, as his
heirs, claimed the property.
Justice Hughes, announcing the de
cision today, held the lower court erred
In interpreting the rules of the order
as preventing members from leaving.
He explained the court failed to dis
tinguish between an ecclesiastical with"
drawal and a civil withdrawal from
the order. The rules, he added, merely
bound him for life in a religious sense
to the order.
