Nathan Jackson; the old colored man who recently secured a judgment of $1 against Marshal Mart Benson, of Humboldt, for damages for personal injuries received in a fight with visitors and prisoners In the Humboldt city calaboose, where he had been placed by Benson, has asked for a new trial. \His attorneys filed the motion today. Jackson sued for $10,000 but a jury decided that he was entitled to |9,999 less than that sum. He believes that he Is entitled to a new trial and that the next Jury would give him a much larger judgment. One of his attorneys said this morning, "We have reason to believe that three of the Jurors made the verdict. We are In- foiled that most of the Jurors were for a good judgment, some of them $?,000, but that they allowed three of their number to name the damages." ur. .uBiiiu rcBpuuut-u Willi a .lu .u-.

Springfield, Mo., Dec. 6.—Raymond Cullenbur of this city. 17 years of age. was sleeping by a camp fire In the railroad years at Moiiett last night when his clothing caught fire. HIB clothing was entirely burned off and he was blistered on every inch of his body. He died shortly hfterward. A mass meeting of those oppcsed to the Barnes hl^h school law and those who favor Us repeal is called to meet In the farmer's room In the court house tomorrow morning by h. B. Pearson, a Salem township farmer, who Is prominent among those who have been agitating the question. There is considerable opposlttoux'to the law down In the Salem township country and several representatives from that country' are expected to attend the meeting tomorrow. WTilIe no levy has been made under the Barnes law and it Is therefore' practlca'ly inoperative, those who favor its repeal are not satisfied with this and want the law wiped out of legislative enactment completely. Needs But a Majority Now. The case in which the Barnes law matter was submitted to the supreme court in an appeal from the judgment of the district court holding the law inoperative In this county, was that of the submission of the law In an election prior to the general election. At that time, the law did not receive a majority of all the votes cast In the election, which, at that time was required. But a legislative amendment, passed by the legislature last fall, provided that at future elections. It would be necesaary only for the law to receive a majority of all the votes cast on the proposition. When the law was submitted at the general election. It received a majority of about 200, not of all the votes cast, but of all the votes cast on that proposition. "In view of this fact," Captain H. A. Bwlng. attorney, said this afternoon, "the Barnes law Is not invalid in this county now, save that the commissioners filled to make the levy and the benefits intended to accrue from the law for the high schools have not materialized. The case which Judge Foust passed on and in which he was sustained by the supreme court waa the one growing out of the election at which the Barnes law was first submitted and which at that time was required to receive a majority of all the vo,tes cise at the election. The legislative amendment making It only necessary to receive a majority of nil the votes cast in the election on that particular proposition wa& passed'af­ terward, and the proposition wa.s again submitted under the amendment, then receiving a leKal majority."

MUST SHOW THEM CONGRESS TO ASK PRESIDENT TO EXPLAIN HIS BESSAOE. TO ASK FOR ^ EVIDENCE H^CSES WANT STATEMENT ABOIT SECRET SERVICE PROVEN. In House the Resolntion Coaeernlng Action Passed rnanimonsly and So Roll Call for It in Senate. Washington, Dec. 17.—Chairman Perkins, of the house special committee appointed to recommend the course of action Relative, to suggestions of President Roosevelt In the annual message concerning the secret service presented a report to that committee at the beginning of today's session of the house. The report recommends the adoption of a resolution calling u])on President Roosevelt to suppiy the house with evidence upon which he based his statement that members of the house were principally concerned over the fact that the secret service man had been Investigating the members themselves. The house adopted the resolution without a dissenting vote antr after very little comment. Senate Busy Also. The senate, too. has decided definitely to enter uiwn an investigation relative to the portion of the' annual message of the president which criti­ cises the action of congress In prohibiting the detail of secret service men to duty In other departments. The resolution directing the Inqujr}- had been in contemplation ever since the message was received on- Tuesday of last week, but there had been some difficulty In arriving, upon the terms in which it should be couched and in agreeing upon the proper person to Introduce It. It was at last decided that Senator Aldrlch should stand sponsor for It and after Senator LiOdge had completed his speech on the Brownvllle "affair the Rhode Island Senator took the flooi: and presented a resolution authorizing the authority. Senator Culbertson, the caucus leader of the Democrats, Immediately sent up a substitute which was somewhat more specific. .\ compromise was finally made. Senator McLaurln of Mississippi fav ored a dignified resentment of the Ian guage of the president and Senator Bacon declared that in his view the message was the most deliberate and carefully designed and carefully word ed Insult ever sent to any parliamentary body In this country or any other country." "If is my deliberate judgment," he said, "that if the king of England had gent such a message to parliament there would be but one thing to shield him from the loss of his crown, and that would be the apimlntmeut of a regent." The resolution was then passed without a roll rail. Brownsville Goes Over. Without discussion the senate adopted Foraker's resolution Introduced In the senate yesterday, calling on the secretary of war for various Infor- imation concerning the employment of detectives for use in the Brownsville affair, referred to by the president In bis message to congress. I^ter the senate Informally agreed to postpone until after the Christmas holidays action on the bills providing for re-enllstment of the negro soldiers, discharged on account of the Brownsville affair. The iindorstaiidinp was arrived at aftt-r a brief discussion In which Mr. Foraker said he did not wish to speak further on the subject until the reply of the sPcrMury of war to the resolution.

TO TRY WHISKEY JirDOE tOLLIXS SETS J.\NIART lOTB AS DAY FOR HEARIXn. Notfees of Seizore Were Posted To- day—The' Doe Brothers Heavily Interested. Of course you are not jiariicularly Interested In this, but this Is the way that the thirty cases of booze, which were seized by the police yesterday, w 11 be • disposed of. Notices simitar to this will be posted at the Katy station, where the liquor was located: To John .Doe and Richard Roe, whose real names are unknown:—Notice Is hereby given that thirty cases of whiskey In bottles has been seized by and are now held subject to the orders of the ]x>llce of the city of iota. You are notified to appear on January 10, 1909, to claim and show what right and title you may have In the gpods In seizure and why said whiskey should not be confiscated and disposed of according to due process of law.—J. M. Collins, police judge. There la much doubt as to whether John and Richard will appear to claim the goods. And there, is also doubt as to v/hether the consignments addressed to several lola citizens will be called for. However, those who have ordered whiskey and which is now held by the police may recover It. "If a man has ordered whiskey under his right name and will show that It Is bis property, that package will be returned to the railway company and the owner of the goods may get it there. This may be done prior to the date of trial. We will take no illegal means to hold the liquor but all shipments that come under the ban of the law will be handled according to law." MO. P.
