Since the arrest of Mr. Wheaton it was been known that the state regarded Dr. Petersen's testimony as Important to the case.

The state ment which purports to come from Dr. Petersen goes on to say that the girl weighed possibly 120 pounds and had darlc hair, and brown eyes; that Mr. •V\'!heaton said he looked after her wBlfare; that Mr. Wheaton said It was,her first trip to Kansas City, and that ho was going to tal<e her to the parks.

He said Mr. "WJjeaton liad come to his office with a girl but he could not remember how she looked or anything about who she was except that she was ill and he direct ed her to a Dr. Hughes' office. The state resorted to severe questioning to obtain additional information from Dr. Petersen but he did not recall what they wanted him to say. Y'esterday afternoon he was recalled to the stand again. Chris Hitter who questioned him, had in his hand the written statement alleged to have been made by Dr. Petersen with ref erence to the case. He asked the witness if Mr. •VTheaton heA j^ot said that the girl who was Vi'ith him was his stenographer and bookkeeper, but the witness did not recall.

Yesterday the Rev. G. Morony complied a list of the births and deaths reported from Dr. U. G. Hughes's hoispltal on Washington avenue from July 12 to December . last.

If carried through, will mean a great deal to the country in Haskell and south Finney counties, has been presented to t;ie officials of the reclamation service by Congresaman Madison, and it has met the favor of the officers who are conversant with the local situation. Mr. Havls. chief ent^neer of the service, and Dr. Newell, cljiet of the service, lioth have spoken favorably on the sub ot and an expert will be sent out to liKik over the lield lu a lihort time. The plan as presented to the deiuirl- meni ttrovidcs for the building of h sturage reservoir on the south sido of he river soineUiiug after the plan ol ,ake .MeKluule ill Koariiy county, and the |<urtiose «if the ci<nstrurtlon of this tke would lie Idenlie.-tl with that of l.)«l<(> MeKlnnle, to store Ihe IIIXMI waters of the river for IrrlKatUm p<ir- pose.-L Just across the hills south «if Oar- on Clly Is a iiiUural dei)ressltni, which could with a comparnllvcly small expense be made to hold a large supply it fiood Waters. While enough lower than the river to make the filling of the basin an easy feat of engineering. . et the liottom of this lake Is one hundred feet higher than Santa Fc and nearly 150 feet higher than the country which would be watered from it. The largest expense would bo the construction of the canal from the river to the lake, and (his is not considered a difficult feat as the ground to be worked is all sand. On the com- pletlofi of the canal ihe washing of (he flood water through it would soon cement the bottom of the channel with silt. m.iklng a permanent waterway, It is easy to see the advantage of such a storage reservoir. With an assurance of water whenever needed, the country south of the river,, which is now highly productive, would become fen more so and there would be a real incentive to farmers to farm on more extensive plan in this territory The plan was sijggested by Horace J. Evans, who noted the possibilities of the depression and he made maps of the country showing the elevations and amount of country that could be irrigated from the lake. His plan .ileased Congressman Madison, who has taken up the matter, and the following dispatch from Washington indicates (hat he Is Interesting the officials: "Congressman Madison has pot the reclamation service interested in another proposed irrigation project for Southwestern Kansas. There is a great natural basin near the FInne.v-Haakell county line Just south of the Arkansas river, which at a comparatively small cost can be transferred into a lake to Irrigat/ thousands of acres of fertile land east of the basin. Madison ha called the attention of the reclamation officers to it and they have promised to send an expert out to make a tech nical Investigation. If the expert finds it a feasible scheme the government will likely take hold of the matter.' Jannary 16. Today, Yr.

Jan. !«.—When the st>ecial session of the legislature convened this afternoon practically every member was present. The senate was called to order by Lieutenant Governor W. J. Fitzgerald and the house by peaker J. S. Simmons. It Is likely Ixith branches will adopt a resolution limiting the time for introducing bills to the jiresent week. Willi one exception there will be no elections to make in either house. D. Y. Wllstin, chief clerk of the house, baa moved out of tho state and bU place \A uiifU to some one. Chaa. llrilharl of Howard is a candidate fur the place and lato last night was the only candidate. It is likely that ho will bo elect wl without optKwiduii.

The gtjvernor'a mes snKe wna Issuetl by the Mtnte printer at mam yesterday and Is ready for reading, it Is likely that one of the first things 'on tho program will bo the reading of the governor's message. The imly thing necessary to do before that will be the adoption of the rules of tho last session. Unless there Is a fight over some point which Is unlikely, this can be done In ten minutes There will be no drawing for seats. A six million cubic foot volume gas well was drilled in yesterday af (ernoon on the Nash farm three miles south of LaHarpe for the Lanyon Zinc Sme'ter company by the Gas City Drilling company. The rock pressure of this well is even better than any in the field, being 8omethin$ over two hundred and seventy lbs. Gas was reached at the depth of something over nine hundred feet. This is the third well to be drilled in on this farm. This welt is larger than any of the oihers and Us rock pressure is a Kreat deal better. Ordinarily the third or fourth well that Js drilled In a field is not as good as tho first ones because they are affected more or less by the ones which are being used. This probably means (hat the field souih of I^aHarpc which waa discovered les.^ than two months ago is one of the l>est in this s-sction. The l^anyon Zinc company is lay lug a |rfpo line from their No. 3 work.= :il ljiHari>e (o the new field.

NEW MOTOR CAR, Is Being Used on Main Line of the Missouri Pacific. Ottawa. Kan., Jan. 16.—A new kind of motor ear passed throuch Ottnwn ->ver the Missouri Pacific yesterday. Those who saw (he ear say it much resembled an automobile, it is real ly an auto-motor car. The car is .il>out as larjie in every way as t nioriern sized aii(omol)ile and con tains sea(s for ton persons. The car is the prnp?r(y of Chl»f Engineer Dorley. Roadmastor C. B. Painter, both of Osawatomie. accompanied Mr. Oorey in a (r'n of inspecdon over tho railroaii. The car Is run Just like an a'Xomobilp. In his message to (he members Governor Hoch says in part: I recommend the enactment of the primary election law state wide in its character to include every state, district and county offlcef to be vote<l for in this state this year, and to include also an expression of popular choice for United States senators and to be operative In selection of this year's candidates by every political party.' Governor Hoch says the demand for the depositors guarantee law is overwhelming. He recommends that all doubt of the iegalit? of the state railroad commissioners in establishing a two-cent passenger fare be removed by the enactment of a straight twocent passenger fare law and the incidental repeal of the mileage book law. A bill to strengthen the prohibition law has been prepared and will be submitted by Attorney General Jackson. The governor favors an amendment to the pure food law. an amendment to the national guard law, to bring it Into harmony with the Dick bill and an act conferring ui>on women the right to vote for president this .vear, but the Kovernor does not wish these latter reforms to occupy the attention of the legislature to the displacement of specified measures (o pass which the legislature was called together.

WlisIiloRlon, Jan. 15,—There Is a big demand on the vaudi'ville circuit to sec pictures of Secretary Taft In motion. This demand has risen to such heights as to give tho moving lilclure makers no rest and F. ,T. Marlon, representative of one of the big concerns In that line, arrived In Washington to sec what he could do about it. "Wyjen we ascertained." said Mar Ion. that the demand for Taft film? was so great, wa decided to attempt to get pictures of the Secretary ot War as soon as possible." Marion did not attempt to account The appointment of I>r. P. S. Mitch el! as a member of the national legis lative committae was approved by the Allen County Medical society last night. Dr. Mitchell received his notice of appointment from national officers a few days ago. The medical profession over the entire country is urging some Important legislation and the appointment which Dr. Mitchell receives Is quite an honor. for the desire of the public to. see Taft in motion. Envious Forakerltes assert that the public does not be lievc Taft can move. It is all the result of the exaggerated publications about Taft's size, they say. As a matter of fact. Taft is as light on hia feet as a rubber ball. He Is like the enormous bear in the fa'ry story who spreads terror until it develops that he is made of rubber so he can bounce down the mountainside and come back to the top with the recoil. Slow Machine Won't Do. The lengthy Fairbanks and the sawed off Knox are ponderous In move ment compared with him, and even Uncle Joe. who can shake a leg in a Virginia reel better than John Sharp Williams, ha* nothing "on him.' These historical facts not being known at where they make moving pictures, Marion has brought along a slow-moving machine, think inig it will be plenty fast enough to ratch Taft even at a dbublequlck. If he ever gets in (o see the Secretan he will find out his mistake. He did i:ot get in. "Moving what?" said the Secretary "Bring me those papers. Moving pic tures? No. Where Is that commis ston? I can't lay a thing down but somebody takes it away. Moving pic tares, did you say? Is that you. Gen eral? This is the Secretary. I wou'd like to see you right away. Did yon say. Carpenter, that this man wants to take a moving picture? Ah, Ed wards. I was Just sending for you See If you can't rush this through will you? W3:at was I saying. Car pentar? Oh, about the moving pic tures. Tell him I'm too busy." Marion will try again. Topeka.
