JURY LAYS NO BLAME
BULLET THAT CAUSED DEATH OF
WALTER M. ASKAY NOT TRACED.
Miss Ethel Rose Tells of Jealous
Suitor, but Officers Believe
Glanctn Shot Responsible.
"Shot by an unknown person" was
the verdict returned last night by the
Coroners' jury, sitting at- the inquest
in the case of Walter M. Askay, who
died at Good Samaritan Hospital Mon
day night from a wound In the head in
flicted by a supposedly stray bullet
fired either by detectives Swennes or
Moloney during a. chase after ..John
Jones, an alleged highwayman, on
A new angle to the case was brought
out when Miss Ethel Rose, of 1592
Gravensteiu avenue, the girl who was
with Askay at the time of the shoot
ing, said that a Jealous suitor had
threatened her life unless she con
sented to marry him.
Askay was riding on an outbound St.
Johns streetcar when, as the car neared
Fifth and Pine Btreets, a bullet crashed
through the window and struck him in
the neck, fracturing his skull and
entering the brain. Detectives Swennes
and Moloney, who had opened Are on
the fleeing negro, were held responsi
ble for the accident on the supposition
that a wild bullet had struck a hard
surface and, in glancing, found. Askay
as its target.
A closer investigation of the case Is
expected following the story told by
Miss Fthel Rose, although the original
theory that Askan was accidentally
shot by one of the detectives is still
generally accepted. She said that Dick
Cordner, alias Dickson McGregor, had
threatened her when she refused to
Thomas Swennes and Pat Moloney,
the detectives, are anxious to have the
case brought before the grand Jury for
further investigation. They were not
satisfied with the verdict of the Jury.

People of ' State Told It Is Their
Dnty to Take Lead in Active
Propaganda to Abolish Sa
loons in Xation.
TOPEKA, Kan, Dec 30. Kansas was
pointed to as the proof that prohibi
tion actually does prohibit in an ad
dress by Arthur Capper, Governor-elect
of Kansas, before the National Con
vention of the Intercollegiate Prohibi
tion Association here tonight. He" as
serted that the fact that Kansas is
prosperous and at peace with Itself is
largely due to prohibition.
Prohibition Is not an easy condi
tion to achieve or maintain," he eald.
"It takes constant vigilance and cease
less' enforcement of law."
Mr. Capper touched on woman suf
frage In Kansas when he asserted that
in the state no man can gain office on
what Is known as a "wide open" plat
form; that the women would defeat
him If the men should fall.
Per Capita Consumption Reduced.
Kansas has reduced its per capita
consumption of liquor to $1.25 annu
ally, as compared to the $21 annual per
capita consumption of the average
state having saloons, the speaker
pointed out. He also asserted that
Kansas bad the lowest percentage of
illiteracy- In the United States, largely
as the result of Its 32 years of prohi
bition. He compared conditions in Kan
sas with those in Missouri, the nearest
state with saloons.
"In Missouri one farmer in 100 owns
an automobile," he said, "while in Kan
sas one farmer In five has a car. Mis
souri has saloons, into which its people
pay $80,000,000 a year. Missouri has
but $20 per capita In the savings banks.
Kansas, with 2,250,000 less population,
has more than $100 per capita and
about $600 for every family within its
borders in the savings banks.
Kansas Helps Jifw York.
"Missouri has millions of dollars in
vested in breweries and saloons, but
Kansas lent $50,000,000 to New York
in the panio of 1907, while Missouri
declined to send a penny. Missouri's
wealth has been going into saloons
and breweries to an alarming extent.
Kansas' wealth has been going Into
silos and banks. Into safe homes. Into
educational. Institutions, into town im
provements." In view of these results, Mr. Capper
said, "it is the duty of Kansas people
to take the lead In an active propa
ganda for making this a saloonless
"On the west," he concluded, "Colo
rado has joined the elect. On the south
is Oklahoma, dry from Its birth; on
the north Nebraska is striving for the
right, and on the east, Missouri Is try
ing to be free."

at the Multnomah Hotel after two
cyclonic months working and trading
cattle among his fat Hereford herds
In Harney County. Mr. Hanley reports

has placed the cattle In prime condition.
"I predict that the wave of prosperity
that Is now being produced by the
European war and other things will
topple right over the crest Into our
midst before we realize it," said Mr.
"It makes a man positively ashamed
of man's - management - to ride over
thousands of acres of easily tillable

Not long before the recent general

lazy. The Brewers' Union insisted
that he be reinstated and rather than
face a strike or any similar difficulty
at such a critical time, Mr. Wessinger
agreed to return the man to his post
providing he would obey orders abso

work November 2, Wessinger escorted
him to the washroom and ordered him
to stand in one place from 7 A. M. un

Kruptenbacher has followed these or
