this without molestation by the police.
Iast Sunday, of course, all these
things were wU-ked and wrongful, as
evidenced by a law of the vintage of
"64. resurrected by Idstrict Attorney
Cameron, after two decades of disuse.
Itnt out of the State Circuit Court yes
terday afternoon there was ' Issued an
Injunction. It restrains the Iistrict At
torney, Chief of Police and other au
t hi Titles from interfering with the
Sunday retailers today. The Injunc
tion Is of a temporaray nature. In
Issuing It. Presiding Judge Gantenbein
made the order returnable tomorrow
afternoon at 2 o'clock. At that hour
arguments will be made.
Permanent Order -May lies. u It.
Should the retailers succeed in mak
ing a sufficient showing a permanent
Injunction may be Issued by the court.
In that event the issue would likely be
settled and no further prosecutions at
tempted. District Attorney Cameron
has mentioned his rights of appeal to
the Supreme Court, should the matter
be settled without the formality of
trial on grand Jury Indictments now
pending against cigar retailers who
were arrested last Sunday. But ap
peals by prosecuting attorneys are very
rare, and It Is doubted If he would go
to that extreme.
In securing the temporary restrain
ing order, the retailers saved them
selves from an embarrassing position.
They didn't know what was going v to
happen to them this Sunday. They ex
pected to be arrested In wholesale
numbers, but were - very much more
troubled at the possibility of being ar
rested an Indefinite number of times.
In short there was fear that the law
would be enforced to the letter.
Fire Contentions Are Made.
In bringing action against the au
thorities to suspend law enforcement
today the attorneys for the retailers.

team of 1901. In that year Portland won
the pennant by a big margin from a
league composed of Seattle, Tacoma. Spo
kane and this city, and Tinker's work at
tl'.ird base for the Portland club was of
such a notable character that he was

then and has ever since. He Is now
rated as one of the greatest ballplayers
In either big leagues.

TOPEKA, Kan., Oct. 3. Beginning at
Syracuse, on the western line of Kansas,
at 6 o'clock this morning, and ending at
Topeka with two monster meetings to
night, W. H. Taft today reached the cli
max in crowds and enthusiasm of the
campaign trip he began 11 days ago In
"In my 27 years residence in Kansas
and by 25 years of experience Fn cam
paigning. I have never seen anything to
equal the triumph of Judge Taft today,"
said Governor Hoch.
"The crowds In Kansas have been phe
nomenal, and the interest of hte people
most inspiring. The day's developments
leave no doubt that Kansas will be right
on election day," said Mr. Taft.
Emporia, Newton, Hutchinson and
Stafford furnished the banner crowds of
the day. At each of these places the au
diences numbered many thousands and
In Garden City, Dodse City, Kinsley,
Peabody, Florence. Strong City and
Osage City the crowds were correspond
ingly large. -
In tiie H speeches delivered during the
day nd evening by Mr. Taft he not only
talked In detail of the tariff and trusts
and labor, but furnished Kansas farmers
an'1 Itemixed account of the increased
profits they made in the last year be
cause of the operation of the principle of!
protection, as he termed it, over what
they made under the Democratic enforce
ment of free trade. This was the novel
feature of his speeches In Kansas.
Taft! Answers In Affirmative.
A bit of Kansas humor was Injected
Into the early hours of the candidate
when he was awakened to answer this
telegram, which he did In the affirmative:
'. "Syracuse. Kan. To W. H. Taft: ;
Hello. Bill. We live in the short-grass
country, we never saw a President and
will protably never have the chance
again, and we are going to see if you in-,
dorse the Roosevelt policies enough to
take your toddy early and let us take a
look at you at 8 A. M."
The 'look" seemed very satisfactory to
the several hundred people of Syracuse
who came to the station, and Mr. Taft
not only gave them a short speech, but
divided his time with Mr. Stubbs, candi
date for Governor, who took occasion to
make a strong indorsement of the Na
tional candidate as a man of deeds, not
words. In distinction from his opponent,
Bryan, whom he declared to be a man
of words, not deeds.
The Indorsement was said to be Impor
tant from the further declaration of Mr.
Stubbs that he is making a campaign on
the La Follette Ideas, of which he de
clares Mr. Taft to be the logical sup
porter. The speeches of Mr. Taft tonight were
devoted to a discussion of labor, the
trusts and the tariff. On the labor and
tariff Issues he laid the most stress.
He went over again, as he has done re
peatedly on his present trip, the decisions
he rendered while on the benoh. Mr.
Taft regards a discussion of the tariff as
decidedly Important. He summed up the
question briefly In the following manner:
"One of the -Important luuus of cam
paign Is the tariff. For 44 years cut of
the last 4s. the business of this country has
been on th. basis of a protective tariff. It

CHICAGO. Oct. S. (Special.) W. E.
Corey, president of the United States
Steel Corporation, with Mrs. Corey and
a party of guests, a trained nurse and
an orchestra of 12 pieces, stopped In
Chicago today, on the way to Mr.
Corey's 15,000-acre hunting preserve
near Ironwood, Mich., for a 10-days'
outing. While the women of the party
were taken for an automobile spin
about the city, the steel magnate re
mained during most of the forenoon
In the lobby of the Auditorium Annex.
"There has been a 30-per cent gain'
in the steel trade since the low mark
of last Fall." said Mr. Corey. "Tho
business is still 35 per cent below nor
mal. I look for a continued steady
gain, and believe that by next Spring
the normal level will have been
The Steel Corporation head at first
refused tul discuss politics, but at
length consented to say this much:
"Speaking as an individual. I should
say Mr. Taft Is a man of great ability,
and I believe he will .be elected."
He was asked if his wife, formerly
Maybelle Gilman. Intended to return
to the stage, as had been reported.
"I don't care to say anything about
it," he replied. "I have found the
quickest way to bury a truthless story
is not to discuss It."

Struggle for Second Place.
The best previous record was 1107 miles.
The struggle for second place threw both
grandstands Into the wildest tumult. Rob
erts, driving like one possessed, again and
again caught up with and passed the
Losier car driven by Cobe, cutting down
the. distance from nine to four miles in
the twenty-third hour. But Roberts' car
could not stand the strain and, Just as
It seemed as If second place was his, the
motors went wrong and he had to retire
to his camp for new rubbers.
When he returned to the track the
Losier car had improved the opportunity
and the gap between the two was eight
miles. At this Juncture the referee or
dered the Cleveland and Sterns cars to
turn in and give the leaders a clear field
to flnush the race.
One dead and five injured, half a dozen
costly racing automobiles smashed Into

' Excitement In Plenty..
As the nerve-straining contest drew to a
close a crowd of more than 30,000 gathered
at the little race course by Uie sea. There
was excitement a-plenty from start to
finish of the race, for hardly an hour went
by without an accident happening. The
terrific speed maintained by the racers
cut the soft track into deep ruts and
every now and then the automobiles would
swerve into the low fences.
There was keen disappointment in the
record this evening when car No. 6, a

Erlck A. Hnseby and Patrons lle-
Ileved of $73 by Determined
Thug 'Who Escapes.
Singlehanded. one determined thug held
up and robbed the saloon of Erick A.
Huseby, 406 Hawthorne avenue, last night
shortly after midnight, at a time when,
besides the proprietor, the resort con
tained seven men, all of whom fell victims
to the boldness of the robber's coup. Out
of the cash register he took $63 and from

Trust, Who Goes Hunting
With Brais Band.
the pockets of his victims he gathered
$10 more. Then he made his escape, and a
few minutes later the police were scour
ing the East Side looking for him. No
trace of the robber was found.
The seven patrons of the saloon were:
A. V. Butts, W. H. Butts, T. Smith, J. A.
Gllmire, F. Gilmire, A. R. Boswell and J.
A. Crippin, The men were all lined up at
the bar when the front door opened and
the masked robber strode Inside, closed
the door and faced the crowd with his re
volver pointed at them. His orders rang
out sharp and clear.
"Now, men, I mean business. Obey
my orders and all will be well, but if
you don't I will shoot to kill. Turn your
faces to the wall and put your hands in
The seven men complied and then Huse
by, who had been standing behind the bar,
was ordered out to take his place along
side the other victims. In a few seconds
the masked man had rifled the cash regis
ter of its contents and striding to the
eight men against the wall he went
through their pockets. From Huseby he
got $4. from Smith, $5, and A. V. Butts,
60 cents, and from W. H. Butts, 50 cents.
From the others he got nothing.
"I will wait outside for the next ten
minutes," he called as he went out, "and
the man that moves will get a bullet
through his head."
A few seconds passed and A. V. Butts
lowered his hands. The instant he moved
the door reopened and the robber called
that he had not yet departed. After keep
the men standing against the wall a few
seconds more the robber opened the door
called another warning and then slammed
The men thereupon rushed out in the
street only to see the thug disappearing
around the corner on Grand avenue In a
southerly direction. Huseby called up
Captain Slover who ordered out Detective
Coleman and half dozen patrolmen.
The man Is described as being about 5
feet 6 Inches in height, weight 150 pounds,

There has been friction between
Sheriff Stevens and the County Court
and that the County Court la o

Men convicted of contributing to
the delinquency .of little girls should
be given the limit of the law.
Important public questions are dealt
with In the final report of the first county
grand Jury provided under the new law.
The Jury made Its report late yesterday
afternoon after a month of busy work.
Lewd women should not be ruthlessly
driven out of the city. That Is the unani
mous recommendation of the seven grand
Jurors. Just what bearing It will have on
the crusade of the city administration,
which has ordered these women to reform
or leave' the city by next Tuesday remains
to be seen.
, Webster Held to Blame.
The Jury has also been able to arrive
at a final conclusion concerning the long
estrangement that has existed between
Sheriff Stevens and County Judge Web
ster. Sheriff Stevens is relieved of all
blame and the trouble Is traced to failura
of the County Court to turn over to the
Sheriff custody of county prisoners. The
report in this particular reads as follows:
"The County Court and Sheriff have not
been acting In harmony and it Is evident
that the friction is due to the avoidance
by the court of compliance with the law
vesting In the Sheriff the custody and
control of county prisoners.
Sheriff Should Have Charge.
"The wishes of any man or set of men
must not be allowed to thwart the will of
the people and the custody and control of
prisoners at Kelly Butte should be placed
in the hands of the Sheriff.
The Jurors are very direct and certain
of opinion on the subject of the deml
mondalne. With reference to this class,
the following appears In the report:
"We suggest the enactment of a law
placing lewd women under strict police
regulation and regret the existence of the
present law which allows the crusade in
augurated against lewd women of the
Fear Evils Will Result.
"We do not do this with any desire to
shield them from the crimes for which
they may be liable for punishment, but
we are concerned for the evils which are
sure to result from the scattering of them
