The qutet was not hroken nntil the clerk had Snikh- ed reading the document and the pris- oLer in a tlrm voice had pleaded not Kuiltjr. WTben the accused roan sat down,' Judge Fbust called the attorneys to his desk where a brief con anltstlonhlook place, after vhich'the Jodge ordered the sheriff to adjourn «»nrt nntil 1:30 this afternoon. Crev- iaton's case vilt come up In the January team o^ court until vhidi time he will remain a prisoner in the coim- tr Jail as no effort will be made to gef bond. Not lii the history of the new court honse has such a large crowd pressed through the doors of the court room as did this mominR to catch a RMmpse of th(« man who has confess, ed to committing th? brutal crime. Lone; before the time set for the arraignment, the court room and corridors .were Jammed with specti^ors. VaheAlSSto^^Kftia^w was brought from the'fiir'td the court room his every step and motion was followed by the eyes of the morbidly curious specta- tots. In the throng were many women whose appearance showed that they had throT*Ti some wraps about them hurriedly, leaving their homes Just in time to witnestt the Right. WJien Judge FViusf called the case this mornings, E. W. Myler, who was appointed by the court to conduct Crevistonrs case, arose and asked that the came of Col. J. B. Atchison liS ^^jjW ^yr''^!£Qunty. Xttomey Pet- oraon'a Inoiaent' later asked that the name of Depntr County Attorney Wallace Anderson be entered for the slate. Col. Atchison then announced that the'defendant rpfiiRcd to p^ead 7he coarlj, however, nffer the charge had boen read, asked Creviston what plea he would enter, and he nnati ,'er- od. "Not guilty." Crevlit^n, who d.ired to carry out coolly flttd deliberately, one of the mo*t brutal murders Allen county ever knew. Is now very nearly a n?r- . IHnkiV ^KbPua of his attonicys said inirfnbrnlnA~that' not until two days after the crime did he scorn to real Ise the ekiomrlty of his deed. Since then he 'has come to realize his crime and Is overwhe'med with It That ho Is keenly sensitive fo th" norbld curiosity, manifested by the Ihroni;: that packed the court room today. Is evidenced by the fact that he kept his handkerchief over his eyes and face every moment except during the. reading of the charge. It was at.-^r8t tbongfat that he was in tears T>Ut now tt develops that he was merely trying to avoid the gaze of the gaping spectators. That the defense will fight the charge on the groands of insanity is now definitely known. E. W. Mj-Ier, one of the attorneys, eajiA this mom- iof In answer to a question that he had nothing to give out as to the line of the defense except that In all prol^ ability it would be some form of insanity. When asked as to whether or not Creviston had done or said anything that might-bear out this conten- tjon, Mr. Myler said. "That wl'l de velop during the trial." The attor­ ney'made the same reply to a question_, as fo whether or not there had evef; been any Insanity In the Creviston ifamily. The prisoner and his attorneys lield a long conference beforje the arraignment. OQOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO O : O [e ; JUST OXE WEEK TET.

They ext>ect though that he will be at Topeka to attend the annual banquet of the DsmocratIc club on Febniary 22 and will ask him to make a positive sUtement at that! time. The statement expected frm^* Col. Harris will probalily l>e follow cd by thu announcement that either Dotkln or Breidenthal Is a candidate for Governor.

Congressmen Oppoae Reappointment of Frank Wynn at St. Loola. Washington. Dec. 12.—President Roosevelt h» In a predicament over the St. Louis postmastcrship contest. The three Republican congressmen from St. Ixiiiis. Bartholdt, Coudrey and Caulfleld. oppose the reappointment of Frank Wi^man, who held the ofllce one term. They nr3 backing O. L. \K1iltelkw, for the place, and hare the support of Senator Warper and National Committeeman Akins and other powerful political Influoices in Missouri. The only thing Wyman has to bank On is his ofllcial record. No postmaster in the country hts a cleaner record and it haa been a rule of the administration to always give a second term to such postmasters. Besides Wyman has been band in glove with the administratton in its otislaught on the I^ewis publications, and he and the government are Jointly concerned over some suits which Lewis has filed against them. The chief objection raised against Wyman by tha St I/iu's congressmen is that he doesn't plar politics; thit he ^ ungrateful to the men who "made him." Someone is needed in the olBce, they say. who will help to bul'd up a Republican organization. The president has not indicated what be proposes to do. The appointment will be made in a few days. It happens that most of the politicians who are fighting Wyman are supporting Cannon for president. EDNA 8MELTZER WARD INJURED Niece eCD. B. D. Smeitzer Severely Burned at Home in Arkanaaa. D. B. D.
