Dr. Oarlinghouse who examined the body last night gave it as his opinion that the man came to his death by over stimulation of the heart He states that there are a number of similar cases on' record w|iere persons who have used alcohou Ic llqnors to excess and have quit the habit for a considerable length of time, have come to death by over stim ulation when they began drinking heavily again. There is considerable evidence in this case which goes to show that the doctor's theory is probably correct. A letter from a Kansas City liquor firm was found in Yarberry's room, dated November 14. relative to a shipment of liquor. Two empty bottles were found in the room wtlch appeared to have been emptied recently. While In a half dranken stupor last evening it Is said that Yarberry made the statement that he had consumed a gallon of whiskey. A small pacMge of letters, about four dollars In silver and a watch and chain were found on his person at the time of death. An autopsy Is being held over Yarberry'? remains at the Culbertson morgue this afternoon by Coroner Reld assisted by a number of local pliysicians. At pres." time the investi gatlons had not developed far enough for the physlctans to express a definite opinion as to the cause of death. Milwaukee.

The bullet from tbe gun entered the Fouch boy's right side and death followed less than fifteen minutes later. MIsner. who was close enough to hear, says that tbe only remark the dead boy said was: "You have shot me.' MIsner, who was the first to reach tbe side of young Fouch after the accident, called friends and the wounded lad was carried into a nearby house where he died shortly afterward^ The lad was conscious until death came and <bia last words were: 'telephone for a doctor and tell mamma." . ists were complied with hm OPEN COURT MONDAY Judge Fouet to Hear Cases Continued to Adjourned Term from September.

Cleveland, O., Nov. 21.—Speculation Is rife here today as to whether or not Mayor Johnson really is without resources. The mayor himself will do no more than reiterate statements made yesterday, saying that he must rive up luxuries and live simply until his lost fortune is recovered. Today he was on the streets on foot and, pipe in mouth, wore the same smile. At noon he dined at a prominent cafe with P. C. Albers, an official of t.'te traction company.

Tbe Kansas City Star says: Topeka, Nov-. 20.—A new plan, contemplating the orgai^zatlon of special courts for the enforcement of the Kansas prohibitory law Is being talked of by W. R. Stubbs, governor-elect. It is expected to have a new court created In each of the 105 counties of the state. This court is to have noth ing to do except to see to the enforcement of the prohibitory law and looking after the juvenile court business. Special marshals would be ap- tMlnted^to da the active detective work of ferreting out the bootleggers. The plan was originated by Mr. Stubbs and has the approval of Fred S. Jackson, attorney general. Mr. Stubbs also desires to make the sell* Ing of liquor a felony, but the attorney general Is set against this, as he does not believe that such a heavy penalty will aid in enforcing tbe law. Under the prohibitory court plan the governor Is to appoint the judges and marshals. There might be a fight made on this because of the poiitical pie" which would belong to the governor. Its chief advantage appears to be that it would give the governor absolute control .of the situation. Often It Is bard to get judges to strictly en- torce the law In open counties. The governor could appoint to the bench of the new courts men who favor the enforcing of the prohibitory law and who would not openly put obatacles in th9 WW -Of- the .enforcements- aa-.baa been done by some Judges in Kansas recently. There would be a court in each county but the marshals wouM be attached to none. They would travel about over the state looking up evidence In different counties and woiild bring cases wherever they found thera. The arrangement for these courts would take out of tbe district courts much criminal work. In the big counties the criminal coses of jolntlsU takes up much of the time of the courts that Is really needed for other work and the new courts would help a great deal to relieve the con- :;e.<itlon. With the juvenile court work (he now courts would have plenty to do.
