Appieton. Wis., Feb. 8. - Habeas corpus proceedlngs have been institutted in the case of Sebastian Feldschmidt, who was sent to the county workhouse for flve days. The case wil] be made a test one and calis into question the legality of the action of the county board in allowing vagrants tö be sent to the workhouse instead of to thf county jail. The same conditions exist in many other counties in the state and if the workhouse proceedings are shown to be illegal the most effective method of dealing with the tramp question yet devised will be brought to naught.
