Uuiubold'- In u Yt'o rnbfttUiy As tile ri suit of a raiJ iimik' by the (!puuty olIlciTs on his drug stors this Uiorniug, Dr. Karl Vougtle of Hum- lx>lUi cliurged with maintaining u uuisauce aiiiJ with having made thirty-seven illegal sales. The raid das conducted hy County Attorney Carl Jjetersou, Sheriff C. O. Bollinger and Jailor H\)ov..n- Kerr. ; Dr. Vdcgtle has held a drugglsia litiuor permit for years and is at pres- • tint the only person in tho county to hold such a peimiit.. Complaints have ivowever bi-en coming in to the county aUorney that he was selling liquor illegally. Mr, Peterson therefore though it beat to malie an investigati nation. This morning with tha sheriff and jailor, he made an early morning- trip to Humboldt. In the Voe^- tje drug store were found two barrels of beer and one barrel of i whiskey. Tbese were confiscated by the officers and brought to the county jail. Tlie most damaging evidence against Dr. Voegtle. however, is hi.s' record of sales. Under the terms of the permit, the dru;?gist must keep a record of the names of .the parties lo whom he> sells liquor and the com- piaint or disease for which the liquor i.s sold. The purchaser i .s required to nil out a blank affidavit stating the disease for which he wants the liquor and swear to the truth uf the affidavit. Tiie druggist is not permitted to sell iKinor as a beverage and Is not allowed to sell to any one addicted to drink. 'Dr. Voeatle's monthly record of sales as filed with the probate judge's office has been quite large, at least large enough to arouse the suspicion of the officers that he was selling fl- legally. His books show that he made 1,144 sales for the month of August aiid o^'er TOO thus far this month. Mr. Reterson said today that he hud talked to a number of men who had iiurchas- ed liquor from Dr. '/oeptlo on a i)pr- mitand all said tha' thev had not been required to snejip to the affidavit a.s to what coniiilaiiit the liquor ^'as for. >ir. Peter .siin al-o found names of Humboldt men in the list who an' known to be addicted to drink which is in violation of the permit. Tp tfi date Mr. Peterson has chargtid Mi'. Voegtle with thirty-seven sales. Dr. Voegtle came up today with the officers to arrange for bond. He says thai he .sold the linuor legally. Dr. Voegtle's record of sal?s indicates that Hunibolrtt is a vei'y iie liealhy place. • li also indicates tha' whiskey is a remedy for nt.'irly aK diseases.

Topeka, Sept. 21— Twtuty-flve prisoners in the siate^ penitentiary may receive clemency and freedom at the iiands of Governor Hoch. Tomorrow the governor will go to till, prison for a slay over next Monday, and iu the three days he will iiivestlgate the records and history of two-score inmates. . It is in reallt.v au errand of mercy. These twenty- live prisoners are. tnere for various offenses. Their offenses, trials, and incarceration attracted no attention the jmbilc. There was no commotion at the beginning and no obscurity has completely burled thefli. But they have won the confidence and respect of the prison authorities, so far as their prison conduct has been concerned. They havi. lived up to the obligations and discipline imposed upon them. Beyond that there are extenuating circumstances. There is a story" in conntctlon with each one of the twenty-five. None of people has ever had an;one to intercede or to plead for him with the governor or the board of pardons. Either they have been without friends out- s'de, or have been without courage to m-'ike a fight. In short. Governor Hoch Is going to sej for himself, the "frlendlcHs" prisoner, who deserves clemency. Since early summer the Governor has had this trip in mind. He planned to go in June, but at that time had but seven cases under consideration. They had be«n called lo his mind in MET IN AN ASYLUM BKIDE IS DECLARED SANE. ARE OECENOANTS OF SCOT KIN6S WIN TWO YEARS' FIGHT FOR LOVE, CASH AND LIBEUTV. Girl Who Claims Macl>etb a.H an An* cestor Su^eti by Muu in Direct Line From Robert Briice. Chicago, Sept. 21.—A modern knight errant, who waged real battles against real people with great odds, was wed by his fair lady in Chicago last night after winning many victories . while tilting under her colors. Helen S. MacBean, who for years has been hurried from one sanitarium to another, who claims that her cousin had her adjudged insane so that he might continue in control of the fortune her father left her. was given her liberty and wealth by the courts yesterday. This was brought about by Eben S. Martin. 9 Oakland crescvit, who met her in a sanitarium. The two were married a few hours after Judge Cutting lianded down his decision iu the probate court. Both the bride, who is 21 years old, and the bridegroom, 28 years old, have in their veins the blood of fighting kltilgs of Scotland. Both Descend From Kin?s. Mrs. jMartin claims descent from .Macbeth, while Martifl is a credited descenaant of that Scottish king who, aside from the battles he waged, w^on immortality by the determination Icnred from a spider—Robert Bruce. The romance had its beginuiug a year ago last spring. Martin, after sustaining severe injuries in a railroad wreck, was taken to the Pen- aoyer sanitarium at Kenosha, Wis. -Miss MacBean was at the sanitarium, where she had been sent by her cousin.

It was sought to be shown to the court and jury that Miss MacUcuu was a kleptomaniac aud had often been detained and accused of stealing articles. "Yes. 1 did take some small things." declared Miss MacBean. glancing at her cousin. Wui I was forced to because 1 was' given such a scrimpy allowance."

"Wliy ( was only ^vcn an allowance of $2 a month for a time, but when t complained It was increased to $1 a week." • Miss .MacBean was released from the Kenosha sanitarium last December after she had been there confined for thirteen months.

There as in New England. In the centraL belt of states, and in the south, he is fai- and away ahead of all other candidates. Counting the ballots for first.^ second and third choice, he has been men tioned favorably by approximately 85 l)er cent of all those who have sent In their answers in response to letter. .\s a matter of course he swallowed up all of the other candidates for first, second and third choice. \Vliere Taft is put dpwn as second and third choice it is almost invariably the case that Roosevelt is named to precede him. The First BaUot Figures. ; On the first choice ballot Taft has 307, Hughes Go, Fairbanks 21, Citnnon 19jpnd Knox only 6 votes iu the far western states of California, Nevada. Utah. Colorado, Washington. Wyoming- Idaho. Oregon and Montana, -^hey are states which are more or le^ deficient In delegate strength in the national convention; but. on the,;other hand, the representatives of. thfe Pacific slope are of a strenuous ;kind, and generally manage to make themselves felt In any political gathering without much regard to their actual numbers. Coupled with this extraordlnarj strength of Taft. there is manitestef" a general approval of the Roosevel- tian policy, the total showing +25 fo- and..27. against -the president's pro­ gramme with eight not voting througl JBadvertenee of iBdigeipuLe.—-— As to ihe Pmfdeht 's Policy. On the other hand, a good nuDy '•' the correspondents declare that: while they are satisfied with the president's policy.up to date, with certain exceptions like his treatment of the Chinese question and of the closing of the foi>- est reserve, they believe the time ha? come for the adoption, if not of a.more conservative policy, at least of a conservative candidate to carry out thr policies initiated by the presldetit. As a result of this there Is a strong tendency toward Secretary Root which is noticeable up and down thf Pacific slope. He Is credited witt twenty-two votes in the actual returns but this by no means measures the eX: tent of this popularity, because man? of the papers follow out the iirintet^ blank in expressing preferences and then say a good word for the" Secre; tary of State. Senator LaFlollette of Wisconsin comes in for a similar tribute to his personal popularity. H< receives twenty-seveu votes, besides-r large number of friendly refereiices tc him by way of foot note?.
