CASE GROWS OUT OF

J>ally Express Austin Bureau.
AUSTIN, Tex., Oct. .10.—A» novel case
was decided by the Third Court of Civil
Appeals, the case coming from Franklin
county, the decision of the District
Court of that county being affirmed.
Tlio case grew out of the issuance by
T, B. Banister, County Clerk of Krank-
lln county, of a marriage license to a
daughter of J. O. Jackson. The daugh-
ter was but 14 years of age and Jackson
brought suit for damages because he had
been deprived of the services of Ills
daughter ud to the time she could law-
fully marry. No criminal charge ;s
Chief Justice Fisher In writing the
opinion says the evidence shows the girl
could have become the common law wife
of the man, regardless of whether t,.a
license had been issued and therefore,
th 1 appellant cannot recover. The women
wart legally married and after the mar-
riage of a woman the right of a parent
to demand her service* ceases.
LOCAL CASE AFFIRMED.
8upreme Court Sustains Judgment In
8an Antonio Loan and Truat
Company vs. Lonergan,
WASHINGTON, Oct. 31,-Actlng Sec-
retary Oliver of the War Department has
determined upon reforms in the army in
order to make the service more attractive
for the enlisted men. Congress will be
asked for more money for the men, and
the War Department will endeavor to
correct some conditions causing com-
plaints by exerting executive authority.
One of the principal cauaes of dissat-
isfaction among the men has been the
practice of issuing toilet necessities pre-
scribed by army regulations, and taking
the cost out of the enlisted, men's first
month's pay. This would set him back
IB or $7, and it is believed to be the
reason desertions have been more numer-
ous among men who have served only a
An order Issued today by General Oliver
provides that the soldier shall receive his
first razor, toothbruth, soup and similar
articles without cost to him, but there-
after he must keep his toilet kit supplied.
Th>> average annual enlistments are about
20,000 men. but it is estimated that the
•hange will coat the Government only
about $60,000 a year.
Another reform will provide that dally
gymnastics shall be thirty minutes In-
stead of an hour, arid that the time shall
be fixed other than immediately following
drill duty. The weekly marches have been
dispensed with. Horeafter the men take
their "hikes'' once a month.
General Oliver intends to eliminate the
character of work that must be done
around army posts by enlisted men. At
some of the large posts where the grounds
are extensive, these tasks have grown
enormously and the work is not all of a
character that should be done by sol-
diers. To put an end to this will re-
quire an approoriatlon In order to have
the work done by civilian labor.
Still another recommendation will be In
the direction of Improving the rations.
These are now issued so generously that
by good management the cooks make snv-
ings and some company quartermaster Is
able to turn these over for butter and
milk, which are not supplied to the sol-
diers by the Government. General Oliver s
plan is to reduce the supply of rations
to actual needs and Issue butter and milk
so that all companies will fare the same.

AUSTIN, Tex, Oct. 30.— Another chap-
ter in the Waters-Fierce Oil case whs
closed today by the submission of the
main cas\ ill which the State secured
a Judgment of ouster and for penalties
amounting to II,*23,900, to the Court of
Civil Appeals, for the Third Supreme Ju-
Tim company was represented by John
D. Johnson of St. Louis, Mr. Storey of
Boston, a member of the firm of Storey,
Thorndyke, Palmer & Thayer; George
Clark of Waco; D. W. Odell of Cle-
burne; N. A. Stedman and Cochran &
Penn of Austin. The State was repre-
sented by R. V. Davidson, Attorney Gen-'
eral; Assistant Attorney General Light-
foot. County Attornty J. W. Brady. Allen
& Hart and Gregory A Batts. The ar-
guments in the case for the company
were made by Messrs, Stedman, Storey
and Cochran. The argumfnts for the
State were made by Attorney General
Devldson, Mr. LiglHfoot, County Attor-
ney Brady and G. W. Allen.
The principal contentions of the com-
pany were that the Court erred in not
granting a ehango of venue and erred
in not charging the Jury that the Acts
of 190.!, ameliorated the punishment of
1899 and In overruling their flea of lim-
itation against the collection of penalties
for more than two years.
Assistant Attorney General Llghtfoot
reviewed the entire case, setting forth
the State's contention and the facts in
support thereof shown by the record.
Attorney General Davidson supported the
action of the lower court in refusing a
change of venue end also discused the
correctness of the Court's charge to the
Fine Not Excessive.
The atgument of County Attorney
Brady waa devoted to combatting the
contention that the Act of 1899 provided
ex essive fines and penalties, showing
by argument that <1500 a day was not
excessive considering the extent of the
business, the character of the violations
and the length of time that the law
had been violated, that the large size
of the judgment could not he consid-
ered by the Court, it being a continuing
offense, that if the amount a day Is not
unreasonable then the number of days
on which they violated the law could
not make it unreasonable, illustrating
with the fact that If a man robs twentv
houses in one night he could not com-
plain of excessive fines if he was con-
victed In each Instance, that the mere
size of the iudgment cannot make It ex-
cessive. He also discussed the suffi-
ciency of the evidence to support th-
Judgment and made a strong argument
for the State.
D W. Allen, for the State, discussed
the question of limitation and ameliora-
tion of punishment.
The case was thoroughly argued on
both sides, each side urging with greit
ty their -
sel for the State will argue the receiver-
earnestness and ability their respective

NEW YORK, Oct. 30.—The financial
situation today was so nearly normal
that there were few new features of
importance. It was stated by bankers
that the calls for money from the neigh-
borhood of New York and the entire
East appeared to be practically satisfied,

Mr. Williams, the new Slate Superln-
tendunt of Banking, gathered lip most of
the cash in the suspended banks today
and deposited it with institutions, there-
by adding several million dollars to the

ing house were smaller thun usual nor-
mal uonditlons, all such balances aggre-
gating only a little more than $9,000,000

Looking Toward New Orleans.
One of the poirtts at which the most
serious pressure for money Is expected
is New Orleans, In order to finance the
movement of the cottoai crop. The pres-
sure there is always heavy at this season
of the year and promises to be more In-
tense this year than usual unless special
preparations are made. The Now Orleans
bankers appear to be fully alive to the
situation and were endeavoring today
to arrange for transfers of money from
ship matter in the Federal Court at
Fort Worth on next Monday, Nov. 4.

deposit of substantial sums of public

pears to recognize the fact tlmt benefits

but will aid In the movement for the

Cotton bills are being ciosely scrutin-
ized in New York and cannot always be
negotiated quite so promptly as in nor-
mal times, but where their character is
unimpeachable they are recognized as
forming one of the best means of cover-
ing the gold import movement.
One of the most interesting develop-
ments of the situation Is the large
amount of the purchases of securities
in small lots for investments. Most of
the large private banking houses, wmch
sell stocks and bonds, have b*en keeping
the Clerical tore* at work overtime exe-
cuting such orders and attending to the
transfer of titles to the securities on the
books of the corporation bv which they
are issued. This is one of the decisive
marks of investment buying. It is esti-
mated by good judges that there are
400,000 more names of stockholders on
th* books of the railways and industrial
corporations than was the ens* a year
ago. A single large firm reports sales
between MM) Slid I7DO.UOO per day. An-
other firm states that its wires to out-
lying places ar* crowded with small
orders directing the transfer of the se-
curities to the names of new owner*
while still another firm declares that
there has not been a movement of this
kind of such volume for twenty years.
Buying of Stocks Good Augury.
While it requires a good many sales in
small lots to reduce the mass of undi-
gested securities on the stock market,
the effect of every withdrawal from the
quantity of speculative stocks is bene-
ficial to the market. Tills is regarded
as a good augury by the bond dealers,
whose market has been very flat for
many months, but who believe that they
will be able to dispose of many good
securities ns soon as the present flurry
The cables from Europe were not dis-
quieting to those familiar with the situa-
tion there. The fact that the Bank of
England has allowed the question of
raising the discount rate to go over until
the regular meeting of the Governors
tomorrow is regarded as an indication
that the demand for gold is not causing
unusual anxiety there. It is generally
expected that the rate of the Bank of
England will be advanced tomorrow, but
this will be too late to affect foreign
engagements of gold already made for
the Cnited States. Tho disposition in
Paris to aid the London market hv loans
on sterling biils is considered as an indi-
cation that the French bank *is well
♦ortifled and Is willing to pursue, under
Governor Palls in. the gene-ous policy
which has usually characterized its
action in emergencies.
The absence of any failures, either
financial or mercantile, in New York of
any importance except that of Koester

the other favorable symptoms of the
