WIFE CONFESSES 6UILT BROKE nOWX WH£\ SHE FACED IVORTHEX IN CHICAGO. MURDER WAS NOT INTENDED THEY THOI'RHT MISS SIMiER HAD LARUE SIM OF MOSEY. A long silence concerning a case in 'w*ich lolans are deeply interested Was broScn during a jioJitical speech by Governor Stubbs at the Majestic theatre last night. The Governor told tlie reason he had not released convict Jchn He:ily but did not take up the (juestion as to whether the man wrongfully convicted. Governor Stubbs was speaking in the interest of his candidacy for the Vnitod States Senatel A fri -e picture sliow that prefaced the spiH>ch had a full house on hand when the Governor - appeared and a few voters droppiHl lu later after the sin-tH-h was under way. In opening his speech, the Governor made a lltTn^^lly that 1 won rounds of applause. TViere were liuauy children Ih the audience,'the front row being lined with them. When the Governor began his address he lookinl down into the faces of the children and smiled a w-oleoine. "Talking about crops" s;ild the Governor, "young ones are the best. They never fall; There would be little use of this gathering to discuss governmental nlTairs if it w.isnli for the erop of young ones. I'm glad to see them here." Here the Governor launched into a derens«> of his admin^tration. He i^aid that the Democrats were charging extravagance when there had been none. He said that the annual appropriations had been cut down $100.- T>00 a year and that $400,000 had been saved during his four years as governor. The Democrats had no issue, the Governor said, and were simply manufacturing one. The work of Dolley and the blue sky law; < the anti-pass law; the primary law; efficiency and ecpnomylh the administration of state Institutions; reorganization and betterments at the state prison and at the agricultural' college and state fish hatchery were cited as, achlovemeuts that ought io merit the approval of the citizens,. When the Governor touched upon the subject of penal institutions he took up the Healy case with which lolans and Allen countians are fuinil- i«r. "During my four .vears as Governor" th.e speaker .laid, "I have paroled 500 , fonvivts.' I turn out of prison every roan who is not a menace to the pub- lie and who shows, some promise of once agtiin becoinins a useful citizen. Sinee I have anivrd in lola 1 have le.Trned 'hal tl:ere Is some elanjor to know about the oase of John Mealy. 1 have just called Waiden Codding by telephone and a.-^lo'u hint for soyte facfs. Healy was paroled by Governor Hoch In loot;. Jn March l!to7. he Molated lili^ parole and became a fugl- tiv»< for three years. During this period he was not serving time and it wa."* not credited on his sentence. Iliy term will <'xi>lre In 1S14 and he may not be released before that time. Some thing may hapi>en that might indtice nie to parole him but no such thing aji l »ear8 to me now. Healy is a conlirmed irlminal. This is his fourth term. I •have not released him because 1 did ifot want to take the responsibility of turning such a man at liberty. As soon as he gets o'.ii of prison he gets • ri«h_t back again. He is a menace to public safety. I did not try his case nor did I sentence him. 1 have given hls.casc the mcst careful attention and . had I devoted as much time lo the remaining 90 prisoners as I have to Healy, I would have had little time to devote to anything else. I'nder such circumstances how many in the audience believe Healy should be released." Less than a score of bands in th." audience went up in reply. One man ip the audience insisted that the Governor avoided the question as to tlie innocence or guill of tlie prisoiier but • the' executive had answered that by declaring if was not up to him to try the c"se. "If 1 did that," said. '-I .wouJd be ho'ding court all the time •for alt tht; prisoners, nearly, clann that they we^-e wrongfully convicted." At this point the Governor advocated the enactment of a law giving the family of the coiivict the profit of liis prison labor; Dramatically, the governor drew a word picture of scenes ia his office when wife and children come to beg husband and fatliers re- ipup so that he could support them. . "I^* your fault,' 'the governor de- clarsd, ".vou ought to be ashamed to pwnnlt the state to lake the protlt of tlie convict 's labor—money that should ' go td feed the hungry wives and children." ' Reaching the subject of pensions the G,bvernor asserted that the value of the eenices of the old soldiers to the country could not be measured in money. "They should be pensioned tO' the l)oint where they would not have to go to Soldier's Homes," he said, "They ought to be given an amount that would permU, them to live decently among friends and among old home people." nor declared in favor, of a minimum wage law for women; control bf trusts through government receiverships: conservative revision of the tariff downward; presidential preference primary and direct election of United States Senators. The Governor accused Judge Thorap son, the Democratic Senatorial candidate of insincerity in the proposal to sign nn agreement whereby the candidate receiving the largest number of k'otes should be declared elected Unlt- I d States Senator, the defeated candidate to wlthwrad. "1 not only accepted the proposal," the governor said, "but I asked to go farther. 1 requested that the state central committees join in the agreement. When that proposition reached Henderson Martin he promptly turned it down and said ho wbuld never be for Stubbs under any consideration. There are rumors going around that there may be a sort of coalition b«<- tween some of. the so-called straight Republicans and the Democrats under certain circumstances. Judge Thomp.«on had best tlndout who he is for under these 'certain circiimstances.' As for myself I pron'lse you right now that if I do not get a m.i]ority of the votes cast for Senator at the November election. I shall not be a candidate before the legislature." Closing his speech. Gov. Stubbs said that he w-as not urging any one to vote for htm unless they felt that he was the best man for the senatorial job. ' "You'd do me a I. vor, I guess if you would vote against me." he said "I've been in public life for about ten years. I've had a fine experience. It has troi:gh? me In touch with the best .I>eop!e in Kansas and in the nation. But I'm as hungry to go home and spend some time with my family as a small boy is hungry for a circus. As long as I'm on this job and if you .send me to the Senate, I'll have little time to devote to my family for there are bis problems to solve and they demand the best there is in the man V. ho meets t.lem. AVben you go to ihc polls on next Tuesday, you vote just as your conscience dictates. If you doht believe I'm best fitted for the job of Senator don't vote for me. If you believe Taft was honestly nominated vote for him. But I do not and I shall vote for the man who carries in his breast the assassin's bullet. The Governor was introduced by Dr V. S. Mitchell, president of the local Roosevelt for President Club and Mayor C. O Bollinger, C. S. Ritter and S. C. Holmes, of Yates C'enter, occupied seals on the stage. He was given reslpectful and attentive beating. She Says Her Hnsband Made Billy Out of Door Knob and Handkerchief, Robbed Her and Fled.

Later, the Conways were confronted by Wort hen. Miss Singer's fiance. "You know you did it; you both did It." Worthen said. "You know you Tniled my Sophia." Mrs. Conway shouted wildly: "It's not so! You know you killed her yourself:" loiter a confe.<:slon was obtained from Mrs. Conway, according to the police. • "She says that Conway knocked the Singer girl down with a bill.v made with a door knob in a handkerchief, with the intention of robbing the heir- es?.' 'said anpfflcial. "We thought she had more monev than she did," she said. "Charlie did it. Alt I did n-as to throw a blanket over her when w-e left. I did not think she was dead.'" Worthen became hysterical with joy when the news was taken to him. "Thank God they have confe; he shouted. "Now I am cleared and my father and mother will be comforted with the knowledge that I had no hand in the bnital murder. I can go back to Baltimore now with a clean hand. I knew they did it."
