Harry Huber, formerly a resident, of Baa sett and lola. shot and killeid his -wife, Helen, -at the supper table at Wichita Mondsjr eTening and tbenj turning the gun to his temple, blew.out his own brains. j About two years ago. Ruber waB employed at the Tola Portland cement plant, -working tiiere for serenal months. He later went to ^^^ichlta. On the night of August 19tb. 1907. be notified the Santa Fe ofQcials at Wichita of on attempt to wreck the Santa Fe train No; 18. by placing dynamite on the track. According to the story told by Huber. he was fishing with a friend on tie Little river -niien lie noticed men around the Santa Fe bridge near Pochin'ti crossing. He and his companion, he said, went to the scone and there run onto four men. These men he reported took several shots at bim and his comjian- Ion, but were frightened away and the dj-namite found on the bridge Just a few minutes before the train was due to arrive. The case was Investigated by Santa Fe offlolals and It wound up in a confeuipn from Huber that he placed the djuaailte there and saved the train' from being wrecked,'expecting to be rewarded by the Santa Fe Rait road company for the heroic deed. He was placed under arrest and later tried in the district court and convicted. He was given a Jail sentence. • An effort was made to show that while working at the cement plant here he had access to djTiamite. Several witnesses from thli> city and Bas- 'Sett testified. In speaking- of the murder and suicide the Wichita Eagle says: The killing was committed at the Huber residence. 317 North Wichita street. They were eating supper about 7 o 'clock in tlie evening, when the shots were fired. The wife was killed by a sliot in Uie right temple, she falling and evidently dying instantly. In her arms she held a four-niouths^ld baby, Irene. She fell on the baby and covered it with blood. The Infant's face was bunied by the powder from the revolver that killed its mother. After liaving killed his wife and taken a shot at his mother-in-law, Unber placed the muKzle of the gun against his right ear and fired. The bullet lodged In hte head. His brains oozed out of the bole and he toppled overmen the floor beside his dead wife and injured baby. Police Officer Cubbage was one of the first to arrive on the scene.

Mra. Turner says that everjthing went along all right until they were at the supper table. She says that Huber had wanted his wife to go to Hutch in son with him and that she bad refused. "Well,'I suppose you are going to Hutchinson with me," Mrs. Turner says he said. 'Xo, Oscar: I can't. I am not prepared." Mrs. Turner says his wife an iswered. •Well, ihcu, you 'll never go nowhere." be said. Wth that, she suys. he flourished, a revolver, pointing it a» his wife, who was standing near the kitchen door with the baby In her arms, he fired. Mrs. Turner says that her daughter fell instantly^ and that she made a run for tlie door. Then, she says, he [fired at her and nilsHcd her altogether. -The story of Hulier shooting himself is secured from the evidence of two little girls, who remained in the house at the time of the shooting. To an Kaylc reporter Florence Sul- llh'un said: 'After .Mrs. Huber said she would jnot go to Hutchinson v.Ith him. Mr. Huber said, 'You'll never so jiowiicre, then,' and shot his wife. She fell without uttering a scream. Then we ran to the front room. I saw him shoot at Mrs.-Turner, and place Uie gun to his own liead." Two children of Mr. and -Mrs. Huber are living. Harold, 1 years old. and Irene, the bab3-. Both were in the i house. Harold was not allowed in the" room where his father and mother lay- dead. He paid little concern amid tlie excitement, not realUing their awful fate. Huber and his wife, together with the mother-in-law. had been eating supper. \ cup, half filled with eof- fec. lay at liisSjacc at the table. The room lb barely furnished. A threadbare cari >pt covered the IkKir. while thi -ee pictures hung in the room. \ Mrs. C. A. Harper, a ue.xt door neigh bor, says tliat "Mrs. Huber was a inicc woman and had won the respect of all her neighbors, wliile he was liated by all. She said that they were continually quarreling and that he had many times threatened to kill his wife and her mother. He was only released from Jail last Thursday morning where he had served a time on the charge of drunkenness. Mrs. Harj>er says ,that Jlru. Huber would i^ave her husband arrested.and warned both Mrs. Huber and her mother that some day he would carry out his threat of killing. T^jpg Harper said that during the Dr. Clark, of the Wichita Hospital. . „^ xteQn afraid was called. He arrived and took Huber In an ambulance-to the Wichita Hospital. He died soon after being taken Into the hospital. Harry Hnber was a well known jw- llce character. He had been arrested eight times within a year. The charges on which he was arrested varied from threatening to kill his wife to dronkenneES and disturbing tlie Huber was arrested more than a year ago on the charge of placing dynamite on the tracks of the Santa Fe railroad between Wichita and Newten. He was in Jail daring the trial and-six months afterwards, but was • finally turned loose by the county coipmlEsIoners, who* decided it better to give him an opportunity to make a living for fiB wife flian to keep him In Jail longer. According to Mrs. M. A. Turner, mother of the aardered |Wdman, and who was bmwlf shot at.

He told the police he was going to Texas to stay. He went, however, to Hutchinson. lAst August the 3-year-old daugiiter of the family died. At that timo Huber was In Jail. He put up such a piteous tale to the officers to be allow- led to attend his own chihi's funeral that he waa finally allowed to go free.

Kas.. .Nov. 11.—Bank Com- nlssioner John Q. Uoyce wlioae vcilg- latiou gecanie effective yesterday, has made some i-ccomineiidations to Governor Hoch coucerillng the guaranty Jeposil law. The guaranty deposit measure which Mr. Royce advocated during the last •esslon of the legislature and whicli was declared for in the last party platform coinos in for a full discussion n .Mr. Royces letter. He outlines the jort of a lav.- neeced as he sees it af- ler Ills experience at the head of the junking department of the slate. He iet.s forth his views to Governor Hoch as follows: The law should be such' as to permit banks lo voluntarily contribute to a guarantee fund but having once ac- fcpted the provision of the law no bank should be permited to withdraw, the fund should he iilaced in the liaiids of the state treasurer and disbursed by the bank commissioner. Tiie deposllcrs should be paid us soon after the bank closes as tlieir bulauces 2an be deferml'K^, or deiKislts sliou.'d ii -ai the legal rate of interest froni :lii; day Ihe bank dosex. and be paid nil uf the guarantee fund after the as;i ts of the failed bank have all. been exhausted. ICitlier provision sJioiild inilxfy the deix'sltors and the buiik- Ms should be permitted to have the )m> which be:il salts them. The law ihould ecnialu n itrovlslcn thai if the iiind should become reduced by. the payment of deposits, it would be reimbursed from the proceeds of the closed bunk or by an assessment upon Uie remaining banks so that the fund would at all times be kept intact. A law with such provisions would result in gre-.iter good to the bankers :han to the depositors as it would strengthen confidence in the banks, prevent runs and make bank failures impossible only when officered by Jlshoncst men. To protect the bank- ore, the pret 'ent law should be <ireiigtlielied in ssonie iiartlculars and iieuallies slio'.ild be provided for its violation. Banks dciiring lo contribute to and paitinipaie in the guarantee fund, should bo admitted oiily upon •ATlilen application ajiprovei^ by the liank conimissiomr after .-i thorough oxauiinalion. No hank should be ad- tuiiied that was \iolating the law aud •o enforce obedience any violations of the banking law: should, in addition ;o the pres -fiit iieiialtiPS also work a forfeiture ot the bank's auUiorlly to i>articlpaif in the guarantee fund. The law should also limit the amount of interest to be paid upon guaranteed leposits to prevent Incompetent aud inprineipled pfojile from eugagiiig in :ho business.
