G.A,R. HAD BIG TIME WITH W. H. l\ THEY EMJOVED VISIT FROX COXXANVEH XORCIAK IS TECHNICALLY IN JAIL DEPART.MEM I'OX'D'R "JOSHED" ABt)rT LIBEL SHT AKAIX.ST HIM. Found Loral Post in Excellent Sbape Yi. Apple Showed Interesting Bit of History. . Not everyone knew that W. A. Morgan, department commander of the G. A. R. of Kansas, who spoke to the local G. A. .R. Post Saturday afternoon and night, was technically in Jail as a result of the libel action brought against him by P. H. Conc.v. Dtirlnp his remarks to the "old boys" Saturday night Mr. Morgan alluded to (f In a Jocular vein. His comrades here had not a little fun Joshing him about it. The Topeka Capllnl says of the suit: Because he refused to answer questions bearing on the alleged libel by himself and others of P. H. Coney by the circulation of charges which prevented Coney's election as national commander of the organization, W. A. Morgan, of Cottonwood Falls, Kas., department commander of the Grand Army of the Republic for the state of Kansas, was yesterday committed to Jail for contempt of court by Arthur J. Bollinger, a Topeka Justice of the peace. Counser representing Commander Morgan at once filed In the district court an application for a writ of habeas cor pus. arguments on which will he heard on Monday of next week. Pcnd inr the hearing. .Morgan has been re leased from custody on his own recognizance, although he Is technically jirlsoner. The Morgan case Is In everv way similar to that of W. J. Whittekind, one of Morgan's co-defendants in the criminal Itbet;-action and in the clr- II action brought by Coney to recover damages. Whittekind was committed to Jail by Justice Bollinger on Thursday and was released on bond pending the hearing of bis habeas corpus application. There are four other defendants In the lloel eases. If Is not known whether or not they will be ordered before the Justice to give testlmon.v and committed for con tempt If they refuse. There are two cases against t^e six defendants, one of criminal libel, and the other a civil libel action. The criminal H^aae will be fried in the district court. Nov. 0. The civil suit win not be tried until the next term of court. Both WTjIttekind and Morgan were this week summoned to appear before the Justice of the peace, and give. In ad- ance. their testimony to be used in the civil suit. Claiming ithat this takinc- of testimony in advance was mere subterfuge to force them to really testify against themselves . In the rrlnilnal action, the two men stood on their constitutiona' richt.-; and refused to answer the questions put to them. Their commitment to jail by Justice Bollinger followed. The visit of Mr. Morgan and wife here Saturday was a notable occasion for the local G. A. R. and the W. R. C. wo meetings were held and were attended by many out-of-town people. .Mr. and .Afrs. .Aforgan left for their home in Cottonwood Falls yesterday afternoon.
