In this city today over the long distance telephone that E. Vancil of Lawrence, but formerly of this city, had been arrested for being Tesiwnsible for the murder of bis wife. Heretofore Mr. Vancil had only been under sun'eilance of the officers, awaiting the result of the <n<]uest which will be held tomorrow morning. ANTiethcr the arrpst follow ed as the result of the analysis of the contents of Mrs. Vancir.s stom ach by Prof. E. H. S. Bailey, of the State IlniVersiiy or not, is a matter of spccjilatlon. Over the long dis 4ancc telsphone Prof. Bailey said that thp analysis had lieon completed but he r»>fust»d to give o\it the result. "Did thi> arr »>8t of Mr, Vancil fol low us tbe rcaull of U K> nnalyals?" Prof, U«IU\v WHH nskod. "I haw not told Iho offlcor» all I hftvo lo«n\«»<l," wpUed tho cboml»t.

While hero ho employed as shoemaker in the Palace shoo 8torp. Sentiment In Lawrchce Is growing against Vancil. The i^nwrence Jour- jafln"ot.:yf8terday 8a>"?: Vancil takes his imprisonment philosophically. He does not seem to realize what he is up against and that he wlM have to face a jury on the serious charge of wif? murder. His indifference is a matter of much talk. It is now tolerably well substantiated that Mrs. Vancil was illiterate and cculd neither read nor write. That she had -trouble with her husband is admitted and he was known to be running aroiind with other women. The story told by the neighbors is n heartless one. They say that Van- dl not only neclected his wife but flaunted his infidelity before his wifs. He w.Tnted to get rid of her. . She seems to have clung to him in hopes of a change, but it never came. Ki least it did not come In the way she hoped. Mur'i will ilepend upon whether Mrs. Vancil .could road and write. If she cud not., and it Is believed that she could not. then someone jiut the note in the bed. Wlio but Vancil could have done this? The suspicions of the neighbors were aroused before the note was found. The fact that Vancil was In such hasta to get his wife'.«; body out of lown. first aroused suspicion. Other things pointed to some unHerhand work. Enough was known st> that the coroner was summoned before the note was found. In fact the,note was not there prior to 10 o'c'ock the morning after the death of the woman. Sentiment in the vicinity of the VAncil home (s unanimous against the accused.''and he Is golnp to have a hard fight. At first neither the county; attorney nor the coroner believed it was murder. They took the first Etei >.s X(y. allay the woman's suspicions. They had not gone far. however, until they became convinced that a crime had been committed. It was then that they ordered the arrest of Vancil. Vancil; has lived in I.^wrence for some years. He is a shoe maker by trade and first worked for Fischer's, .^ftev that he worked for N'ewby. Of late he has been unemployed. CONTINUE BROOKINS CAS€. Hear ng of Colored Doctor Did Not Odcur Yesterday. Th •. cise of'the State vs. Dr. M. G.

Scott this morning, requesting him to defer the matter of a primary until he received further advices from him. The telegram was prompted by Governor Hoch's action In calling a special session of the leg Islature to take np the matter of a priiiiary. The caU has broken Info the plans of most of the Kansas con gre?smen for holdlne their conven- tloiis and primaries, and nearly all of thein have notified their campaign managers to postpone the meet:ngs scheduled for this week and next. Chairman Xorthrup had received letter from Mr. Scott'yesterday asking that the congressional commit tee got together as soon as possible and determine the manner In which ho candidate will bo chosen.

In a disiwlch from Wawhlnglon to lie Kansas Clly .Tournal Mr. Scott Is quoted ns follows today: "I urged my comnilltee by wire early this morninc- to postiwne its tneetings because I ilo not want It to appear that 1 am trying to run away from any proposed primarj- law. am in favor of a statewide primary law for the nomination of all officers from United States Senator down. .\nd I want it put Into effect at once. The dispatch further said: A conference of the Kansas members was held in Senator Ixing's office late this afternoon to discuss the s'tua- ion. It was unanimously agreed that the proper thing to do was to post l>one committee meetings until the tgislature had time to pass a primary law. Accordingly Congressmen Scott. :MIIIer. Reeder. Madison and Murdock wired their managers rccom mending that their committee meet- ngs be postponed until .January 2S. By that time there will either 1)P a primary law or it will be known what he legislature will do. Meetings held on that date will still enable the congressional districts to hold their primaries or conventions before the state convention. Only thirty days must elapse from the date of the call to the convention. The genera' impression among the Kansas members of congress Is that a nrlmary law will be enacted. A few. however, believe that it will not become effective until next January.

Ro.Tal. colored hostler al tho Douglas Bros. barn, had Just hitched up a hack team and was closing the door.s behind the vehicle driven by Ralph Xlmerick at two o'clock this morning when two men approached from the rear of the bam. One of the men said rather excitedly: "Is that the cab team? ^Vihere Is It going?" Royal answered that it was going to ni.->et the train. AVe'I. I guess wo have missed out.' said the otiier man. evidently disap pointed. He then turned his attention more closely to Royal and said: "Have you got any money on you?" "No. sah." said Royal. "Say. you dig np your rooi^y and do It quick." said the robber ns ho threw a bic gun down on the hostler. Royal then reflected that he might have some money on his person and helled out 00 cents, his pile. Tho men took it and disappeared. Royal did not notify the police for nearly .".n hour and hence the robbers got a good start. % The highwaymen had evidently >!anned to hoM up Ximerick, thinking that he would have some money hj had taken in during the night, but nr rived a few minutes too late. Neither of the men were masked. One was rather short and the other tall. A good description of the men wa.s oh^ talned by Royal. It is the belief of the officers that tho robbers have been in the city several days and learned the habits of the cab men. NImerIck was held up about two ears ago while returning home and robbed of $13. J. Q. BOYCE IS BUSY )(<otthig iho ISew Deposit Gunrnntce Bill Ready for Use. Topeka, Kas., Jan. ft.—John Q.

Washington, Jan. 9.—The constitutionality of the Kansas prohibition law is attacked In liquor cases brought before the United States supreme court yesterday. The cases referred to involve an appeal from the Judgment of the Kansas courts against FrItJ Ourelu, Fred Rosa and Fred Simmons. Kansas saloon keepers, who were convicted for selling liquor. They were set for bearing today, but when they were call(>d the clerk of the court announced that the attorneys had submitted their arguments by briefs. Attorney C. A.

It Is contendetl that tho legislature has no such jiowcr. It Is also nssertrd that tho law is unronKtltuticiual because It is repugnant to tho h^mrtcenth amendment In hat It deprives the appellants and others of their properly without process of law and denies them the equal protection of the law. In his brief Attorney Magaw says: "No court except the supreme court of ICansas, and that only In the present cases, has ever decided that legislatures may absolutely prohibit the sale of intoxicating llqours for medicinal, mechanical and scientific pur^ iioses. Such courts as have spoken on the subject at all have declared hat legislatures have no such power. The attorneys for the state Insist hat it is Immaterial whether or not the Kansas legislature had the power to prohibit the sale of liquor for the excepted purposes. They continue: "To declare the act in controversy unconstitutional i)ractically would wipe out all of the legislation passed to aid in the enforcement of the provision prohibiting the sale of liquor as a beverage. If the contention of counsel for the appellants Is good it would mean that there is no power to punish a person for selling without a permit, because tnere :s no lawful pro- islon by which such permit could bo obtained." Topeka. Kan.. Jan. 9.—The three prohibition cases submitted in the United States supreme court started in Toi>eka In 1902 and 190;!. when Miss Blanche Boles was engineering a cmperance crusade here. The case is to test the right of the state of Kansas to require that all persons selling liquors must have a permit from the probate Judge. The three men did not have permits.
