Peculiar Habeas Corpus
Peter Renfroe* ( air.
Jefferson City, Mo.. Nov. Ila
beas corpus proceedings were coia
menced in the supreme court yesterday
which will provo of considerable in-
terest to the citizens of Springfield .is
the legality of the acts of the crimi-
nal court of that place is in question.
In 18S8 Peter Renfroe shot and killed
Charles R. Dorris, a constable in Texas
county. He was indicted,arraigned and
took a change of venue to Greene
county where in due course of time be
was tried and convicted in tho crimi-
nal court and sentenced to hang. An
appeal was presented to the supreme
court mid some four weeks ago divi-
sion No. 2 of that tribunal affirmed it
and set November 24, 1802, as the
date for Kcufroe's execution.
Last Saturday Messrs. Orchard St
Neiders, attorneys, applied to Judge
llarclay in chambers for a writ of
habeas corpus. It was granted and
made returnable yesterday. Sheriff
Day of Green county filed his return
to the writ yesterday, but the lawyers
were not ready to argue the case, and
it will be heard probably December 5.
lu the meantime a general stay of exe-
cution will be procured for Renfroe.
The application for tho habeas cor-
pus is based cn the illegality of the
act creating the criminal court of
Greene county. It was established by
a bill which passed in tho general as-
sembly April 26, 1880, ou the supposi
tion thai Greene county had 50,000 in-
habitants. The census of 1800 shows
that the county has48,010 inhabitants.
Article 4, section .11, of tho constitu-
tion expressly forbids the establish-
ment of criminal courts in counties
having less than 50,000. Rcnfroe's at-
torneys claim that the county has not
and never did have 50,000. There are
forty-six convicts in the penitentiary
who will be affected by the case in the
event that Renfroe wins. They were
sentenced by the criminal court of
that county and if the supreme court
holds that tribunal to be unconstitu-
tional and the act creating it n nullity
they can be released by habeas corpus

Actress Sadie Scanlan Sing* "Nearer My
Ood to Then" and Expires.
New York, Nov. 2 .—Sadie Scanlan,
a well known soubrettc, sister of Wil-
liam J. Scanlan, the Irish comedian,
.now an inmate of Rloomiugdalc in-
sane asylum, died suddenly lust even-
ing at her home here. Miss Scanlan,
or as she was known in private life,
Mrs. Georgic Hrennan, had been con-
fined to her bed with a severe cold
since last Thursday. Yesterday her
husband, who is an actor in her
company, left her bedside at 6:. o
o'clock and went into an adjoining
room, where he had been but a mo-
ment., wlion lie was surprised to hear
his wife singing softly to herself,
"Nearer My God to Thee." She sung
it unfalteringly to the end, her voice
softening and dying away until at the
last word its melody gave place to a
strange rattle. Hrennan hurried to
her side, but found her dead.
Sadie Scanlan was born at Hartford,
Conn., in 18o7, and was one of four
children, none of whom survive but
the demented comedian. She was
educated at Chicago and studied music
under Prof. 1 ranclielli, formerly mu-
sical director of the Casino.

IN MEMORY OF LUTHER.
The Famous Old Church of Wittenberg,
WrrrKNBBRO, Oct. 31. —1This old town
of pointed gables towers and narrow
streets, renowned in Christian history
because of Martin Luther, is in gala
dress. Everywhere bright banners
and floral festoons are seen and the
streets are crowded with people from
all parts of Germany.
The Emperor William, the empress
and three of their sons arrived at
noon to take part in the dedication of
tho res tored church, to tho doors of
which Luther nailed his famous theses
against papal influences. Thev were
accompanied by the Duke of York,
Prince Gustaf, Crown Prime of
Sweden; Prince Albiecht, the regent
of Brunswick: the Duke of Oldenburg,
the Prince , f 'Vl' Meineugen and
Chancellor \on < irprivT.
Tho church was begun in 1439 and
finished iu 1400. In 1760 it was seri-
ously injured by bombardment, and it
suffered in the same manner iu is 13.
It was first restored 1814-1817 and has
now, owing to Emperor William's
generosity, been again restored.
The feature of tho ceremonies was a
speech by the emperor, which touched
delicately on the relations of church
and state and declared that the Holien-
z.ollerns had always made tho protec-
tion of religious liberty a feature of
their domestic policy.
OFFICERS* WIVES INVOLVED.
The Famous Osborne Case Practically
Duplicated In a Loudon Suit.
Tjondon, Oct. 31. A slander case
that resembles in many respects the
famous Osborne case, came up for trial
in the queen's bench division of tho
high court of justice to-day, the par-
ties being Lieutenant Leader's wife
and Mrs. Smyth, wife of Major Gen-
eral Gibbons Smyth. The hearing
was, however, postponed.
Mrs. Leader visited Mrs. Smyth and
after she had gone Mrs. Smyth missed
a diamond brooch. Some time after-
ward Mrs. Smyth was iu the West end
and saw what she declared was her
brooch exposed for salo in a shop. She
asked the jeweler where he got the
brooch. He said ho had bought it
from Mrs. Leader. Mrs. Smyth denies
that she accused Mrs. Leader of steal-
ing the brooch but says that if she
used the words imputed to her bj' Mrs.
Smyth she was justified in doing so.
Mrs. Leader denies that Mrs. Smyth
ever owned the brooch. She declares
that she received it as a marriage pres-
ent from a gentleman now dead, form-
erly an officer in the Indian army.
Some months ago she applied for nn
order from the court dire ting that the
brooch be sent to Cairo for identifica-
tion, saying it bad been bought there.
The court refused to grant the order.
THE PREFIDENT AT WORK.
Routine Matters Which Had Accumula-
ted Dl posed of Only One Visitor.
Washington, Oct. 31.—-The presi-
dent resumed his official duties to-
day and devoted most of tho forenoon
to the consideration and dispatch of
routine matters requiring his action,
n great deal of which had accumulated
during the last few weeks. Attorney
General Miller was his onl3' visitor
during the forenoon. It is expected
that tho official routine of the White
house will bo ffilly re-established by
the end of the week.
The result of the attorney general's
interview was that the president
granted pardons to Amanda Jones,
convicted of making a false voucher in
a pension case, and sentenced April 7
to three months' imprisonment in
tho Buchanan county (Missouri)
jail, and to pay a fine of $300; to Wal-
ter Dcevcrs, convicted of perjury in a
pension case, and sentenced April 11,
1892, to thirteen months' hard labor
in the Sioux Falls, N. 1)., penitentiary.
No Soliciting reruiitted.
Washington, Oct 31.—The civil ser-
vice commission has reported to the

tion under the law against soliciting

mittee of New York. Three separate
offenses are charged, consisting of
sending letters to government clerks

an amonnt as the recipient may choose
to give toward the necessary and
legitimate expenses of the campaign.

Overholt and Silas JTanclictt, two of
the four electors on the Weaver ticket,
have refused to permit their names to
be used at the head of the Cleveland
Democratic ticket. Their action is
embarrassing, to say the least, in view
of the fact that the Clevelandites have
withdrawn their electors and substi-
tuted therefor the Populist electors.
Ormonde Coming to America.
San Francisco, Oct. 31.—William O.

New Yobk, Oct. 31.—Now that reg-

pleted, Republicans ami Democrats
are busy figuring out their chances of
victory or defeat
Tho Democratic view of the situa-
tion may be shown by tho following,
taken from the Times:
The best promise of Democratic success
Is found in the registration in this city—
300,570. It is about 84, 01 more than ever
before. It is decidedly a Democratic
registration—the gains are all Democratic,
the decreases are all Republican. a great
registration for Cleveland and Stevenson.
All the Democratic managers arc sincerely
satisfied. They know what it means,
because they know how tho registration
was worked for by tho Democrats, and
that It is fully up to their private estimates
of what it should bj. Rirritn? some of
tho so-called Republican districts, tho
city is registered up to tho full
limit. One voter in every five of popula-
tion is what tho census sharps call for;
one voter in six is nearer the facts in a city

and eliminate Republican decreases, and it
appears that iho Democratic vote must lie

In New York and Brooklyn tho registra-

of this increase concededly goes to the

Reports ol W. C. T. U. Depart inenls.
Denver, Col., Oct. 31.—At this
morning's session of tho W. C. T. IT.
convention tho proposed changc in the
of the state and from tho rural districts
so far as heard from, which
was made yesterday at Republican head-
quarters, assured i hairman Haclcctt and
his associates in campaign work that tlifl
Republicans arc certain of carrying tho
State for Harrison and Reld. The state of
New York can bo lost to the Republicans
only by tho occurrence of an unforeseen
contingency, and it is by no means likely in
a canvass liko this.
Tho registration in this city is looked
upon as significantly favorable to the
Republicans. The Democrats have ail
along predicted a big registration of nn\
where from 320,00/ to 3 >, 00 (tho latter
was Mr. Croker's figures), upon which
they could predicate a plurality for Mr.
Cleveland of 75,00 • to 80,00 i. The normal
Increaso would have brought it to 320,00: ,
but tho full registration is 3 <0,883, a heavy
decrease in tho Democratic'prophecies.
Estimating the number of ballots which will
bo east for tho Prohibitionists, Socialists
and People's party at 28,0 0, this will leave
1480,006 votes to bo divided between Harri-
son and Cleveland. Four years ago (Jen-
oral Harrison received 10( ,023 ;hmI Mr.
Cleveland had 16.',73^. This - ear nobody
would put Harrison's below the number
received in IS88, whilo conservative poll-
ticians of both parties havo figured it at
120,000. At tho ratio of in-
creaso in Blaine's vote in 18S4 over Gar-
field in 1880, which Was about 12 | or cent,
Harrison will havo next month iikooo
votes. But Harrison's increaso in l^ss over
Blaine in IS84 was over 17 per cent, ff
this ratio is maintained at the coming elec-
tion President I [arrh on's vote vi IU be 125,
0-0. Even at 1 per cent over four \ ears
ago tho vote for the present Republican I
candidate would rea« h H'.'. Vo.
But the estimates s>t Republican head-
quarters were placed at the lower figure of |
11 ti, (.'(Ml votes for Harrison, and this would
leave Cleveland 155,03J, or 7.M 0 less than |
lie received four years ago. That his ma-
jority will notcx'x'e l tO,0.10 iu Now York

conclusion. Adding r ,i'00 for King* j
and 4,"01 for the counties ,.f |

STATE OF BRITISH TRADE.
Sir John Lubbock Says the Injury From
tliu McKinley TarilT Is Not Great.
London, Oct. 28.—A meeting of the
London chamber of commerce was
held yesterday, at which tho lit. Hon.
Sir John Lubbock, president of the
chamber, occupied the chair. Sir John
delivered an address in which he
dwelt upon the unsatisfactory stats
of trade, which, however, lie de-
clared, had not been affected by the
McKinley tariff to the extent that
was cxpoctcd. British trade with
America, he said, had declined less
than it had with other countries The
greatest sufferers were the Americans
who felt the pinch more acutely than
did tho British. Canadian exporters.
Sir John added, wore in a condition of
commercial paralysis that could
not be indefinitely prolonged.
Tho McKinley bill constituted a,
grand opportunity for Canada. This
bill had placed tho American farmers
at a disadvantage. If Canada -rifited
by the position and lowered her im-
port duties, her merchants would be
benefited, because many British pro-
ducts required in the West would in-
evitably find their way through Can-
ada and across the border without
paying the heavy American customs
