teinpud assault upon Bertha Curren,
school teacher at W'avoland school,
four miles southwst of Wakarusa, was
hound over by Judge Hugh Fisher for
trial in (lie district eourt. His bond
was fixed at $1,000. Vawter Is a young
farmer, married and living just across
the road from the Waveland school.
His family is wealthy.
Only two witnesses were introduced
by the prosecution. They were Miss
Curren and little Helen Trousder, S
years old, one of Miss Curren's pupils.
The little girl, when asked whether
anyone in the eourt room looked like
the man she saw come out of an out-
building in which the attempted as-
sault is alleged to have taken place,
pointed at Vawter.
The identification, however, was not
positive, the little girl saying that he
was about the same size as the man
she saw. Blje did not see liis face.
Miss Curren testified that she recog-
nized Vawter when he attempted the
assault. She did not explain, how-
ever. why she did not tell anyone un-
til the next day, notwithstanding the
fnet that she knew another man,
Frank Moyer, a farm hand, was sus-
pected and that a number of men,
some o fhtem armed and threatening,
had gone after this susp< ct.

She testified yesterday that she

"Has it occurred io you thai I hero
might no! have been any lawsuit had
the little Trousder girl not gone to
the outbuilding at the time she did?" J
was a question John Schenck, repre |
sorting Vawter, asked of several wit-
nesses. The first time lie asked the
question, and those in the court room
caught the* inference, there was a
snicker, which was promptly rcpri- I
innndcd by Judge Fisher.
The litle girl testified that when- J
ever she tried lo open the door of the .
outbuilding someone pushed it shut, I
and that she heard voices, but no !
screams and that Miss Curren from
the inside first instructed her to run

IF VOTER'S NiE
IS NOT ON BOOK
HE CAN'T VOTE
In a letter to a county registrar,
Attorney Alger Melton, who is chair
man of the democratic central com-
mittee, bus the following to say con
ccrning the registration act:
"Some suggestion has been made
that under the provisions of the reg-
istration law, those who voted in 1914
are not required to register. Constru
ing the provisions of this act together
with those of the constitution, I am
of the opinion that unless a voter reg-
isters. he Is not entitled to vote in the
primary election, regardless of the
provisions of the registration act, and
that if lie desires to exercise his right
io participate in party primaries, he
must register under the provisons of
the registration law. I also call your
attention to Section I) of Article 4 of
the Constitution which provides in
part that the legislature may provide
by law for the registration of electors
throughout the state, and when it is so
provided, no person shall vote at any
election unless be shall have regis-
tered according to law. Under this
plain provision of the Constitution,
it is extremely doubtful if an elector
could rely upon the provisions of the
registration act with reference to
electors in 1914 because of the want
of authority in th4* legislature to ex-
empt any elector from registering
under this provision of the Constitu-
tion. Therefore, it is extremely im-
portant that all electors register."

The girl was called before the fed-
eral grand jury Friday afternoon, and

raigncd before Commissioner Green

lieve that Ward and her daughter were
Jiarried, although she was consider-
ably worried about the affair Ward
