CAN'T PDNISH FOR VOTING ILLEGALLY In City or School Elections, Rules Paragould Judge-State Will Take Appeal. (par-la! to tha Oarotta. Paragould, May 18. Judge J. F. Oautney yesterday sustained a demurrer to the indictments against the 127 persons charged with illegal voting in the recent city election ami the nine judges who were charged with having permitted illegal voting. The state appealed to the Supreme Court and the cases were continued until the neit term of Circuit Court pending the decision of the Supreme Court The test case was that in which E. I. McKinley, now deputy state labor eommisisoner, who was indicted as one of the judges in the First ward, State Senator Futrell, representing Mr. McKinley, filed the oeinurrer. He said the indictments were returned under Section 10(56 of the digest, which was a law passed in 187.1 making it a felony to vote illegally in general elections held for state, county or township officers. In 1S9" the legislature passed an act providing for general elections for cities an i towns of the first and second cla.s, which provided that all laws governing general elections should apply to cities and towns. Serin-tor Futrell said the 1895 act could, ny reference to the 1S75 act, prescribe tl.e method ami procedure of holding municipal elections, but it could not by reference or implication define a statutory offense; that if the legislature intended to make it a felony to vote illegally in a municipal election it should have expressly provided such in its enactment of 1893. Judge Oautney, in sustaining the demurrer, said municipal elections are on the same footing with school elections In Arkansas; that no one is entitled to vote in either without the proper polltax receipt, and it is the duty of the judges to see that none except those so qualified vote, but there Is no law to punish either the voters or the judges for illegnl voting in municipal or school elections. Tn case of contest such illegnl votes should be thrown out. McKinley Protests Innocence. "I did not wish to enter a demurrer to the indictment, but my lawyers persuaded that no lawyer would like to try case where there Is no law under which the indictment i found," said Mr. McKinley. "I be lieve I could have been acquitted on the merits of the case before any un prejudiced jury in Greene county. "I am charged, with the other two judges, with having allowed 28 people to vote who did not have polltax re eeipts. I have found that about half this number whose nnmes were given as illegal voters have polltax receipts for 1013. If I should fail to find the other half are legal voters, the judges in (he First ward will have been guilty on a percentage basis of a less offense than the gentlemen of the Grand Jury, as we had more than 300 votes in the First ward, with 28 charged as illegal. In fact, the firand Jury is about ." per cent off in its charges. The election judges were at sea as to the polltax situation, not having been furnished, as the law requires, with a list of legal voters." BOY SCOUTS TN CAMP. Ro--nl to tl". OflfrUf.

HearW 0f the tes timony on the sanity of Clarence I)e- wew at the time of the trial which resulted in his conviction and that of Joe 8trong for the murder of an aged Benton merchant and their subsequent sentenee to the electric chair, was be gun shortly before 3 o'clock todav in the 8aline County Circuit Court. More than 90 men were examined before a jury was obtained. Arter the opening statements were made by Dewein's attorneys, deposi tions from alienists in St. Louis and Belleville, 111., Dewein's former home, were read. These said he was afflict ed with a hereditary disease which affected his mental powers, and that they had treated him for it. Drs. D. V. Roberts and A. C. Shipp of the state hospital at Little Rock, and Drs. J. R. Wayne and Dewell Oann Jr. of Little Rock testified they had examined De-wein since his confinement at the penitentiary and had found his mind affected by the disease. Judge YV. H. Evans orders a night session and this was not concluded until 11:20 o'clock. It is thought the testimony will be finished by Thursday noon and the case concluded Thursday night. It is probable that three of Dewein's fellow prisoners, V. H. Rhea, Hanford Berry and J. T. McNeil, may he called upon to testify as to his actions at the penitentiary when court opens tomorrow. All three were in court today. Rhea and Berry are serving sentences for murder and Berry is imprisoned for bigamy. Dewein was in court all of today and tonight. He is being defended bv Gro-ver T. Owens and K. R. Johnson of Little Rock and former Lieutenant Governor Johnson of Missouri. Former Frosecuting Attorney J. S. Utley and M. A. McDaniel, a Benton attorney, are nssisting Prosecutor J).

The knights and their wives were : given a royal welcome. Mayor J. W. McUendon gave them the freedom of Hot Springs, after he had been pre-r.?nted to the convention by James 8. McConnell, grand vice chancellor, who acted as chairman. Dr. V. H. Hallman, past grand chancellor, on behalf of the local lodge welcomed the delegates and Walter M. Kbel offered, a welcome for the Business Men's League and the local press. When Governor Hays was introduced he said various explanations had been given as to the pronunciation of "Arkansas," but that the reason it is pronounced "Arkansaw" was that the Bible ordained it, and in a humorous way called attention to the fact that: "Noah looked out of tha ark and saw." Governor Hays, who is grand chancellor of the order, then took charge of the meeting. He responded in a feeling manner to the addresses of welcome. He said Hot Springs is not alone the greatest health resort in the world and the most attractive city in the state; but that the people of Hot Springs have a reputation for genuine Southern hospitality that cannot be VIRGINIA GIRL Gained 15 Pounds by Taking Vinol.
