Sfakcs Complaint Against Anderson Connty Kan on Simllai; Charge. X By uniting in marriage with Miss Netta Tfce yesterday afternoon, iWlJl Crocker probably escaped being tried in district court on the charge of stat- nforj' rape. The Tlce girl is isald to be but 16 years of age while young Crocker is 20. * He was arrested flight t>etore last by Sheriff C. Bollinger at Hum boldt and brought to Tola and lodged In jail. Yesterday afternoon at the hearing some Interesting developments occurred.- While Miss Tice named Crocker the man -who was responsible for fajer condition she also made an afBdavIt charging a relative of Crocker's with being intimate with her. This relative will be arrested some time today^ Sliss Tice liveis in Anderson county. According to her story ahe was in a hay camp some miles west of lola some time ago where the rela tlons between her and Crocker are alleged to have occurred. She told the officers that.«he was enclente. As soon as Crocker was arrested, friends of both jMirties began to take steps to "have the, couple marry. \\'hile in Justice. court Miss Tice expressed a wish to marry Crocker which he heartily agreed to. The parents of both the yooni; people ajjreed to the marriage . The girl did not want young Crocker to be prosecuted or sent to jail and urged that she be allowed to marry him and the case be dropped. The matter had proceeded so far at "the time, however that the officers dlA not think it best to drop the caaa As a. result Crocker was bound over ' under a |300 bond, which he could rot give. On the way to the jail the couple stopped In at the probate judge's offics where they were mar- -Ag-ihtCftS^wfethen taken on'to Jafl. J judge - tfmith said the yoitng couple T seemed morie' jDJtnl over the marriage . than many couples, who enter into matrimony " nnder 'entirely different circumstances. -As he could not give bond, Crocker .Was returned to jail, bidding his'wife what appeared to be an affectionate ^goodbye. It is not likely that Crocker, will ever be prosecuted as the girl, who is the complaining witness is now bis wife and may exercise her right not to testify against her husband. — That the girl has a regard for her hust>and was evidenced this morning when she sent a nice warm meal to him. It is said that she is now making an attempt, to secure his release on bond. " It developed today that a sister of the girl, Dora Tice. has also been the victim of some man. She has caused a warrant to be isEued for E. Rowley, a young man living In Anderson county. He was brou^t down and lodged in jail last nicht He protests his innocence' and .declares that a relative ' of the gir< ia reaponslble for her con- .I'ditlon.

Lawrence, Kas., Dec 7.—^The foot ball season just closed at the University of Kansas was the most successful from a financial standpoint the Jaybawkers have ever experienced. Af ter paying ail the debta of the season and a debt left over from last year and erecting new bleachers on McCook field: a trifle more than $2,400 is left in the treasury to pay the expenses of basket ball, track and base ball for the coming spring. Last year there was only 1600 left for these sports and the athletic association bad to go in debt about $700 before school had closed. This year there will be money enough for every branch of athletics and a comfortable balance left over for next year. The Missouri game proved to be tbr heaviest money -maker of the year The total receipts were $8,426.35 of which Kansas received $3 ,769 as compared to |::.142.63 at Kansas City last year. The St. Louis game was a complete fissle as far as money making was concerned. The Jaybawkers' share of the gate receipts amounted to $1 ,030 .75. but after paying . the expenses of two complete teams to the mound city.and the hospital billa of the injured plaj-ers. only $341.40 was left to go into the treaqary. The Wash biirn game was a^much tietter investment, the Kanaas share being $1 ,343.85, tt,«9S.a of which was clear profit Only one game failed to pay expenses the Oklahoma contest. Kaasaa weni to Norman on a guarantee which was insufficient to cover the team's ex (Hinses and accordingly Io8t'$112. The 'ecelpts of the remaining games were as follows: William Jewell. $148.15; St. Marys. $161.45; Manhattan. $251.5 and Nebraska, $2,184. The expenses of the season, the team expenses^ the training table, the pay of the coaches and manager came ont of this, a debt of $700 from last year was paid and $800 put in new bleachers on McCook field, leaving a clear profit for the season of $2,400. tl Is certain now that St. Lonls will not even be considered as a probable game next year. With this exception the schedule will prolwbly be the same as last year with a possible r^ arranging of the game. The Thanksgiving gam.e will, undoubtedly be play ed on McCook field or at Colnmbla, ith the odds favoring Lawrence as a meeting ground. GOLD FROM FRANCE The Govemment Bank Ma .

T. J. ..Vkins. the raemlier from Missouri 3nd Senator Wm. Warner, a representative of Bortholdt, Mo.,«-ex- Mayor Netr. of Kansas City, and Mayor Beardsle.v. pleaded for the latter city. Warner dwelt lipon the. political:.'advantages to be fssined by holding the convention in Kansas City. Seimtor Warner believed it would help -Missouri as a dontitful state if Kahsaa City was chosen. He dosed with a plea in the intereat of republicans ia Missouri, saying: "If you ever Iniead to help us, now Is the time to do^sa" Mr. Bartholdt also urged the .coaiasit- tee to send the conventlba to Misaonrl in the interest of the republican psirty of the state. He said the repnblfbana of Missouri had the democrats "on the run.": and that' this advantage ought to be followed up by the selection ot Kansas City, wbich would strike, terror to the already terrified tenocrata.* yotes UniNrtato to last. Neither Kansas City nor Chicago could count enough copper riVeted votes' lats night among the national committeemen to land the national convention. Kansas City had twenty-one votes whidi It felt confident could; not be taken from it. CUcago manaers claimed thirty voCaa, tmt there were only twenty-three ^hich the Kansas City ddegstloa was willing to concede.: Daring the day there was a pronounced drift from Kansas City ; due to the determinied fi^t of' the Influences nnwllling to have the »>nventioa ga to a commnnlty #here strong'Taft sentiment prevailed.'
