Some time last niglit robbers entered the Adams llros." general merchandise store at Moran and made way with goods valued at approximate ly $300. The robbery was first discovered by HcrlH-rt Konantz. a clerk in the store, when he came down this morning fo open up. Ht immediately notified the proprietors who began at once to lake steps to apprehend the robbers. Word was sent to ti;e officers at Chanute. Parsons. lola and al! the surrounding towns so thai nearly every officer in this part of the country is on the watch for suspicious looking characters. The loss boinn a very heavy one for the proprietors they are determined to catch the robbers if possible. To that end they dispatched to Clianute for bloodhoijnds. The hounds were to ar rive at Moran ou the !:.'.."> Katy and were to jbe taken at once to the store and put on the trail. An effoit has been made to keep peopl«» away from the store so that the hounds will have no trouble in finding the scent. A . posse of men has been organized to assist the officers in the search. This will not be the first visit of the blood hounds at Mora;i as they were brought there the jnorning after the Sapp trac:- edy. but to no purpose as the scene cf the tragedy had l>een so over-run with spectators that the hounds had no opportunity to do anything and wore taken home after several fruiile.-s trials. The robbers took about $l.iO worth of silk. ;i!l that was in stock. They also secured about twenty-five pairs of pants and twenty-five coats out of suits, leaving the vests. While there is nothing to indicate that there was more than one person, it is believed ..thatlbere were several in the party as it Is''not likely that one man would have attempted to handle so much stuff. There were no ira:-ks of wagons or vehicles of any kind near the .-irore The ro:^s are so dry and bard, however, that a waL 'on would leave hut little if any trace of wheels. Kntrance to the store was effected thro;igh a rear window by breaking out a pane of glass. The rear door was thon unlocked from the inside. The stock was not disarranged. The robbers seemed to know just what goods they wanted and where they were located. The robbers left no clue whatever. It is Ijplieved. however, that it is the work cf local parties, or at least some one who had tiecOme familiar with the arrangement of the store. This store w!:-i broken into two months aiio and a tt-w pair of shoes stolen. Are-:\ard of $150 has been offered for th" <iapture an dconviction of tlie guilty parties. The proprietors are bfTeritij: $100 and the A. II. T. A. of Moran $r >0. In addition to offcrin:: a reward lbe A. H. T. A. will lend every eff'^tt lo capture the thieves. MAY S::TTUE CHURCH TROUBLES. Effort Made to Reconcile Pastor and Trustees of Ba«»ett Church. The i.oub'.i's of Mount Zlon church lu Bas -f !lt (seein to be in a fair way to be s-uled without furir,er legMl pro- ccediiK.-. Yesterday a number of white Ti'inisters of the city met with Rtv. Hill, pastor of the church, and thfc tri.tees, and effettod what they hope t <i be a permanent settlement of the dwfrences. It wid be remembered that the trustees "of the church brou'-h: an action to replevin tie churc;-. paraphernalia. This action grew ,1: of an effort on the part of the f if .iees to cause Rev. Hill to resign. V h'ch he refused to do. It seems that .hi! trustees Uiink that Rev. Hill does ;ot conduct the church under the i 'j "f.s which have been followed. At tt-^ meeting yesterday the trustees wtre :rged lo drop the rejileviu action. u',d it is very probable that the ilega! > •'ps will be caecked at this p<iu? The case was to hare been tried ;olay but was continued ',ln the belie: 'hat it could be settled out of court. FOR AN ADVALORAM TAX. Minir^ Congress Adopts Resolution for $30 a Ton, JopI :i.

WAS TWO YEARS IN F0RM!N6 PROTESTS OF CIVIC BODIES AND CITIZENS r.NHEEDED. City to Get 3 Per Cent of Gross Receipts and a Material Reduction In Rates. Chicago, Nov. 12.—-By affl-xlng his signature tonight Mayor Busse made effective an ordinance passed by the city council last Frlaay granting to the Chicago Telephone company an extension of its franchise until January 8, 1H29, and put an end to the negotiations between , the company and the city which have continued since that date. The ordinance requires the tele phone company to pay the city 3 per cent of the gross receipts from local business and to allow a discount of 25 per cent from current rates on telephone for munioipal uses. Rates to subscribers are readjusted and materially reduced. The city reserves the right to terminate the grant and to purchase the lln^s upon twelve months' notice in l!tl9 or In 1924 on the basis of payment to the telephone company for only such tangible property as might be necessary for the continuance of tha telephone business. Lively protests by city and commercial clubs and' organizations followed the action of the council In passing Ihe ordinance. Special meetings within the organizations and a mass meeting at wtdch ail were represented were held &»i resolutioire asking that the mayor exercise his power to veto were drawn up and presented. The chief objections cited wer^ that the rates provided for In the new ; measure were excessive and the terms of possible purchase by the city unjust; alleged undus haste in passing the ordinance: failure to sufflc- ient'y investigate the claims to con slderation of a rival company, and the absence of provisions compelling connections with independent companies. Tha mayor, in announciiiS iis approval, said: "This ordinance' was under consideration by the council committee for nearly two years. That committee Iiad the assistance of a commJssion of experts appointed under a previous administration, the results of whose Investigation, research and reflection are a matter of public record. Abundant opportunity to be heard was afforded every one who had aijything to s'iggest to the committee In connection with the framing of tha ordinance. Viewed from every possible standpoint save only the querflou of rales, the ordinance ns passed by thr* council Is one of the most complete that has ever been adopted In thi.s city for the regulation and control of a public service corporation. "As fo the question of rates. It can not now bo definitely told whether tliey are too high. That problem is essenfJally a legislative one. If it shall be determined in the future that the rates are too high, abundant authority Is reserved by the terms of the ordinance for their future regula tlon." Gre^nsburg, Pa..

Wittshington. Nov. 12.—"lih-ery night she lakes the s.Miators picture Jown from the well of her cell and kisses jt a fond good night/' '. Judge Orlando Powers, chief counsel for Mrs. Annie Bradley, who Is chargied with the murder of ex-Senator Brown, of VU\i. tlhus described tonight the affection that his client still retains for the memory of hpr victim. : "She still holds sacred the memory of the man who caused her all th -s trouble and anguish," said the lawyer. "I have found It very difficult. ?ven now. when s.'li9 is on trial fpr her life, to get her to say anythiifg that win cast a renection on hitii. Really vital incidents, big enough to sway the Jury, she has kept from u^ IP) to the last tw :o days." • As to Mrs. Bradley herself., this is the view she takes of the matter: "If my attorneys succeed In making tljo Jury see tihe case as I see it." she said today. "I shall have no doubt to the result." She had just returnsd to the district Jail after suffering the disappointment of having her trial postponed until Wednesday momiiu?; because of the death yesterday of Justice McComas of the district court of ap paals. Just Plain Insane in This Case. Whether Mrs. Bradley shall talce the witness stand in her owii defence is a problem that her council are still pondering over. The defense will hs one of insanity—not emotional insanity, nor the unwritten law. -nor ayy of the subterfuges that the lawyers are wont to resort to In.such case.-' "There will be none of that in litis trial." Mr. Pow ?rs said tonicht. "We are prepared to prove that Mrs. Brad- 'ey was insane—truly insane—ahd there will bo no mention of the 'tin- written law.' at least on our side pf the case." ' In this connection counsel for .Mrs. Brdaley today prevailed upon the g(|v- orument to bear the expense of bring ing to Washington—for the accused woman is practically destitute—Lionel Shrewsbury, of California, Mrs. Bradley's uncle by marriage, who v^dll swear that her father 's sister spent the last throe years of the California state tnsan#^ asy This witness will testify that Mfs. Bradley's paternal aunt had freqiif.nt periods of madness, during which s^be would threaten the lives of those dear and near to her. I But. »hoiig:h counsel for the defetise are anxious to avail themselves of the effect Mrs. Bradley's appearaijce would have on the witness stand.-In view of their decls 'on to rely whql'.y on the plea of Insanity, they hesitate about calling her. "Can we put an insane woman on the stand?" they are asking themselves. '.'If she is insane is she a competent witness?" = Opinion here inclines to tha bejief that Mrs. Bradley will be called. ] Hearts Are to be Wrung. "We are not sure. But if Mrs. Bradley does go ou the stand, she will te'l the whole story of har infatuation for Senator Brown from the time she first met faim np to the tim^ of his death," Powers said tonight. "She will go even further back than 4hat and tell of her life—of her ^rst marriage—the circumstances of Jier divorce—all that will in any way Aed any li ^t up Oe act with whlcb she stands charged. i "When the public hears the whole story their hearts ^dll h» wrung^ at the thought of the humiliatkm fmi sorrow this woman reHnemeirt |md culture suffered for years, a'l "because of iter love for a faithless man." - > ^ life -In asylum.
