Adj. Gen. J. W. P. Hughes Is finding that Itils no small task to give away the $23,000 ! which his department is distribnting among former members of the Twentieth, Twenty-tlrat and Twenty-d «c- |ond regiments of Kansas Volunteer In fantry. He began the work of d s- trlbutlng the money a year ago but ^e still has approximately |4,500 in Ihis possession which he has not yet bden able to pay over to its rightful owners. It Is now thought probable Wat many of' the men entiled to benefit from the distribution of the funds Will not be found and that part of Che Imoney will remain In the possession of the adjutant general 's office Indefinitely. But under the law It niay never be paid into the state treasury. The money being distributed cofaiies from ^he federal government for the l>ay of volunteers for the Spanish- American war from the time of their enrollment until their muster into United States service. The men have already been i>aid once for this service and the distribution under way is A second payment In several states, the volunteers were paid for service between enrollment and muster from the state treasury. The federal government afterwards made an appropriation to reimburse^ the states but the supreme court held that he money so appropriated must be pKid to the men by the state and not placed in the state treasury. So the men In some states got double pays from the first appropriation. In oiQl .er that the volunteers might be treated alike a second appropriation was made for the benefit of soldiers from states where the men were paid but ok^ Kzuiaas was In thla latter claas. , Adjutant General Hughes aays that the men are scattered all over the world and that he has had great difficulty locating them and having proper vouchers made out.The amounts being liaid range from $3 to $50. BRITAIN'S FLEET TO BrRN OIL. Tank Stramrn Probably WIH Ran From Port Arthur, Tex., to England. London, .Nov. 2G.—The sailing of the [admiralty 's tank steamer Petroleum for Port Arthur, Tex., marks a new departure in the British navy, as It Is the first time that the admiralty has tried the experiment of importing I oil in its own ships. It is anticipated that the trip is the forerunner of a small fleet of admiralty tank ships, which will be continually employed in meeting the increasing requirements of the British' navy for fuel oil. Oil is ousting coal from the furnaces of the British Mosquito fleet, and a plan to dot the coast line of the British isles with oil depots, where torpedo boats may replenish their tanks, has been dedded npon by the admiralty. A fleet of naval tank steamers, which will bring the fuel directly from the oil shipping (torts is considered to be the cheapest land most satisfactory method of keeping these deiJots supplied.

APPOINT DEPUTY ASSESSOR. Slate Tax Commission Has ent Liet- ters to County Boards. Topeka, Nov. 26.—The State Tax Commission yesterday sent circular letters to the Boards of County Cora- mlssionera In the 105 counties of the state calling attention to the fact that It will be wise to have special meetings of the Boards in January for the purpose of appointing deputy county assessore. Under the law county assessora must be appointed by the Boord^ of County Commissioners at the regular meetings in January. In counties ofmore than 25,000 population the meetings will be held on the flrst Monday in January, and an a regular meeting will also be held the Frst Monday In February special liieetings for the.Belectton of deputies may not be necessary. But In counties of less than 25.000 population regular meetings are held only once a quarter. As the deputies may not be selected at the same meeting that the county as^sor is appointed the State Tax Commission thinks that In th? smaller clasa of counties special neetlngs should be called as soon as the county assessors have been appointed and have taken up their duties. At these special meetings It will h? necessary for the county com- niissloners and the coonty assessor to .ilso determine the number of deputies that shall be appointed In eadt county. ' .

Washington, Nov. 26.—Labor unions are hot on the trail of "Uncle Joe" Cannon. They want him defeated as speaker of the house. Republican members of congress are being swamped today with- lettera from officers of labor unions of their respective districts, demanding that they turn down "Uncle Joe" and elect "some friend of labor" speaker. The unions making the fight are all represented In the national organisa­ tion of which Samuel Gompera la president Their lettera are so similar as to lead to the suspicion that the offlcera of'the notional organixa- tlon formulated them .or at least directed the line of thought to be used. In them, "Uncle Joe" Is iiaraded as an arch enemy of labor, a friend of plutocrat and a dictator. >^ The chief grievance of the unions Is that the speaker Is opposed to a national eight-hour law, an antl-lnjunc- tlon law, and helped to re-elect Congressman Littlefield of Maine against the wishes of union labor. It Is charg ed In the lettera that "Uncle Joe" stacks the Judiciary committee which bandies all labor bills, and that union labor can expect no legislation of a beneficial character from congress as long OS he Is speaker. Then comes the demand for his defeat The demand of the' unions has started the cold sweat on many congressmen who represent districts containing a big union labor vote, and they are replying very diplomatically. I Those member* who do not have ito cater to the unions are telling the labor leaden that "Uncle Joe" is gfr- Ing everybody a square deal now, ahd4 that the labor leaden are kicking be-' .cause they are not getting more than {a square deal. Host of the membera are replying however, that it Is a useless waste ot time and energy to start a fight on the speaker now. as he Is sure to be re­ nominated by acclamation at the republican caucua next Saturday, and will receive the full republican vote when the house organises Monday. The union leaden are Informed that no -reputable republican member wUl stand as a candidate for speaker In opposition to' Uncle Joe. Gen. Sir Edward Coivllle Dead.

BRADLEY WAS INSANE. CR.WDS WERE IN COURTROOM DR. ETANS TOLD OF CRUELTY OP BROWN TO PRISONER. Washington, Nov. 26.—The battle in the trial of Mrs. Anna M. Bradley, charged with murdering former Utah Senator Arthur Brown, in this city, was well lauqcbed today when the de­ fence placed on the stand Dr. Britten D. Evans,-of a New Jersey Hospital fof the insane, to corroborate statements mode yesterday by Dr. Barton of this city, that Mra. Bradley at the time of the shooting of Senator Brown was insane. The district attoroey was aided Jn his questions by Dra. Smith, Ely Jelllfoo. of New York, and Edward M.^Brush, of Baltimore. Dr. Barton's testimony of yesterday consisted very strong for the defense but the standing of Elvans as an expert in cases of tills character and the feet that he teaUfled in the Thaw eaae was sufflcient reason for attracting more than the usual crowd to the court room. Wbmen were again much In evidence. Dr. Charies O. Hill, of Baltimore, an expert, was called. He showed on the date of the shooting that Mra. Bradley was Insane and incapable of choosing between right and wron:;. On cross examination, be aaid, hi his opinion, she intentionally shot Senator Brown, but her state of mind was such that in her aberration she believed she was doing the right thing as diatlnguished from wrong. Dr. Evans then resumed the stand. His testimony was dramatia He spoke sympathetically of Mra. Bradley and referred contemptuously to Senator Brown for his ill-treatment of her. all of wbieh, he said, had preyed on her mind and unseated her reason. He deelCred that Brosrn. by Ms own hand, had destroyed children which he had begotten. His \ reference to the Senator was so pointed that Jus tice Stafford admonished him that Brown was dead and could not answer for himself, and further that Brown was not on trial. Evans was not cross- examined. Judge Powers then read extracts from torn lettera of Mra. Bradley found In the hotel, expressing love and devotion for Brown. Mra. Bradley sobbed and wept and nearly fainted. At twelve-thirty a recess was taken. LAST OF BELLE SLATER CASE. Daauge Case Was Once Tried la lola. (Chanute Sun.)

The original case was one filed in Girard in which Belle Slater asked $10,000 dainages of B. C. Redlon, a wealthy resident of Kansas City, for alleged hnproper advances. H. P, Farrelly. of this dty. was the plalntifTs lawyer. At the first trial the girl received the full amount asked, but a change of venue was taken to lola on an appeal. Before coming to trial the case was settled out of court. • Redlon met Belle Slater In 1905 and took her to his home In Girard, Kas. It was shown In the trial of the damage suit where he lntroduced~h4r aa his niece. She sued for 910 ,000 and secured a Judgment for that amouOt at the flrat trial. The eaae Just settled was a claim forfor fees by J. C. Uttick, of Kansas City, who took a number of depositions from acquaintancea of the girl and forwarded them to Redlon.

The Instme^ tlona, which are in pamphlet form, are very explldt and the use of the various blank forms prepared by tl^ Commission are fully explained. Something of the idea of the Tax Commission regarding the importance and responsibility of the work of the county assessora and the manner in which they will: be dealt with by the commission may be gained from the following paragraph In the Instrn^ Hons: • . "Being the responsible head of the work in this county, the county a^ sassor must assume any duty which may seeni necessary to make the law operate effectively." It has bean suggested that the law does hot require much from- the county assessors, br.t to the j Commission it seems that he will bie the faaj-dest worited officer of the coiintyi) that is upon the assumption that he will be assiduous in his work, and If ha Is not he should either resign thj; Office or be removed therefrom.
