BAR HUN GOODS
That IsVhat Matt lVelghtman,
' Jr "Wants Sow.
H Will introduce Bill In -the
' Sext Legislature.
PROHIBIT POSSESSION, ALSO
Thousands of Dollars' Worth
Held in the State.
Increase in Salaries of State
Employes To Be Urged.
Kansas may bar the sale and even
the possession ot "made in Germany"
commodities. Matt WeiRhtman, jr.. of
Topeka. proposes a measure before
the next state legislature which will
provide a penalty for the possession
of German made articles and will pro
hibit their future sale.
I Weightmai:. who will sit with the
Shawnee county delegation in the new
house of representatives, proposes a
short session of the lawmakers. He
wants the real business of the state
disposed of promptly appropriations,
salary increases, repairs for a few laws
in absolute need of attention and ad
journment. The bill making the sale
Jncl ownership of German goods a
crime against the state will be intro
duced by "Weightman early in the ses-
B1"l believe It is up to the state To
takectlon agrainst the sale of German
made articles," said Weightman. 'My
bill will provide a penalty for the
sale in this state of any article made
lav Against Possession.
Then WelRhtman proposes to make
possession of such article prima facie
evidence of guilt. He would provide a
fine for the mere ownership of any
article or commodity made in Ger
many whether the article was pur
chased before or" after the Lnited
States entered the war.
"The only way to clear up the whole
matter and clean the state of everxr
thing that has a German sound or
taint Is to provide a penalty for the
possession of any article made in Ger
many." continued Weishtman. "Such
articles ourrht to be taken over by the
state. If they can be disposed of in
such a way as- to return revenue, the
money should be placed in the perma
nent highway fund."
AVeightman's plan would turn thou
sands of dollars into the road building
funds of the state. Passage of this
bill would automatically confiscate all
German made articles in the hands
of Kansans jewelry, bric-a-brac, fur
niture, machinery, mechanical de
vices, toys and even wearing apparel.
Practically the entire bulk of German
made goods in this state, however,
were purchased before the war. Thou
sands of dollars worth df medjeines
and chemicals which were sent to
Kansas prior to the declaration of war
have been disposed of. However, a
fortune might be realised from the
laboratory equipment which has been
imported from Germany and is now
in possession of hospitals, schools and
private practitioners. .
Favors Salary Increase.
In addition to his bill putting all
German made articles in a clasa for
confiscation, "Weightman proposes a
..general increase in salary schedules.
"We must increase the salary of state
employes to meet present conditions
and living demands." AVeightman said.
"The present sulary schedule was all
right in -the days of Mary Ellen Lease
and Jerry Simpson. But so many fel
lows have run for office on economy
programs the last ten or fifteen years
that the clerk and stenographer draw
ing a state pay check has been' for
gotten. There should be a general
increase in salaries. I believe the
mutter will be attended to. Then with
the appropriations including defi
ciencies for war time necessities the
legislature can wind up a shbrt ses
sion and go home." y
ToiKkan Given Commission of Lieu

Dr. T. A. O'Connor, who has had
his office at 609 Kansas avenue, has
received a lieutenant's -commission in

HE TURNED HER INL
Tlielnut William-Declares W on
One ot Her Soldier Guests. '
The spirit, of revenge held Thelma
Williams, colored, a notorious river
district character, in an iron grasp
Monday when she was brought to the
office of the court of Topeka to face
a liquor charge. She had gone out to
buy liquor for three colored soldiers,
one of whom told the county attorney
about it. So anxious vas Thelma to
"git at that niggah" that she plead
guilty to the liquor charge without a
protest in the hopes she could get
down to the street before the colored
soldiers had made thier get-away.
"The war may be over in Europe,"
she told Frank Leech, marshal of the
court of Topeka, "but, take it from
me, it's Just startin' in Topeka." '
It seemed as tho the clerk was un
usually slow in taking Thelma's plea.
Hhe was impatient to reach the sol
diers. "Please let meSo. Judre," she
begged. "I Just want to hit that little
shiny-faced nigger once."
But the soldiers igot away.
It seems that tile three, home on a
furlo, had gone to Thelma's home- at
II It East First street Sunday night
and after drinking what whisky they
had on hand, gave Thelma J20 to go
out and buy some more. She did not
return. Morning came and still she
did not appear, so while two of the
men stayed at her house the third
came to police headquarters and
swore out a complaint against her.
In the meantime she had returned,
without the whisky, and handed the
money back to the two soldiers. -
But Hugh Fisher, county attorney,
had heard about th0 case and ordered
Thelma brought before him. She
pleaded guilty. . and sentence was de
ferred. The negress is a large, pow
erful woman and the-authorities are
unanimous in the opinion that she
would have made short work of beat
ing up the little soldier. The police
say that, while she seldom keeps li
quor for sale li her house, she acts as
a go-between for the bootleggers and
O0TTHE SAME WAY
Germans Ejected Thru Same Gateway
They Entered in 1914.
With the British Army In Belgium,
Nov. H. Peace descended 14ke a man
tle over the battle front at 11 o'clock
this morning. The last big gun
crashed Its challenge and a great over
powering quiet replaced turmoil, death
and destruction. Almost coincident
with the signing of the armlsfice by
the desperate enemy, the ety of Mons
capitulated before relentless -British
pressure. On this hallowed groun3
the troops now are resting on their
arms, htpy in the thought of the fit
ness of their finul triumph. They had
driven the enemy out by the samo
gateway thru which Field Marshal
von Buelow and Field Marshal von
Kluck hurled their great armies
against the valiant little force of "con
temptlbles" In 1914.
The population of Mons today pa
raded the streets, cheering madly their
deliverers. ' Their glad cries must
have reached the ears of the Germans
outside the wails of the town.
Early this morning a crisp, graphic
order to cease fire at 11 o'clock was
distributed to all units with a further
order to maintain defensive precau
tions and to have no -intercourse with
m enemy. Tn advance continued,
the gunners racing forward to the ad
vance batteries seeking the honor of
firing the final shot. Punctually at
1 1 o'clock the firing ceased. Fleets of
British airplanes dropped showers of
signal lights which descended with
the momentous message to those be
FEW NEW FLU CASES
Only Seven Were Reported to City
Health Officers Today.
The expected Jump In influenza due
to the large crowds which have recent
ly gathered has not yet occurred. It
may not yet be time for these new
cases to have developed but-they do
not show as yet. ;
This morning only seven new cases
of influenza were reported in the office
of the public health department. Nine
teen releases were made this morn
ing. During Monday's celebration the
telephones in the public health offices
were busy with frantic calls from peo
ple who had "done their time," were
perfectly recovered, and sincerely
wanted to be let loose so that they
could help celebrate the capitulation
of the Germans.
There are still a number of patients
in the emergency hospital. Releases

GREAT DAY HERE!
Topeka Celebrated Peace With
a Kecord Demonstration.
Something Doing Every-Minute

AFTERNOON PARADE FEATURE
Thousands of Cars and Pedes
trians in Line of March.
Only One Accident Reported in
tho Whole City.
Wakened at an unseeMly hour Mon
day morning by that Unknown but
vital force, the underground telegraph.
Topeka and Shawnee county and all
the world for that matter struggled
up from warm beds and made ready
for a day given over to celebration
of the greatest event in the history of
the world. The war was ended, and
jusu about the time the fighting
stopped the people of Topeka grabbed
the news from thin air, rnd tpe stage
Was Bet. r
The celebration Monday was not the
affair of utter abandon of Thursday.
Nor was the celebration Monday
fraught with danger to' each and sun
dry of the participants or the onlook
ers. Thursday afternoon following the
recept of the United Press dispatch
saying that the armistice was signed
Topeka gave, herself over to uncon
trolled orgy of danger laden exuber
ance. Alonday afterno.n, with the
cty just as much agog and wth the
news of the signing of the armistice
official beyond doubt, the citizens
went aboht the celebration and dem
onstration more soberly but . Just as
The greatest difference between the
two celebrations Was that the United
Press incited celebration was a spon
taneous outburst caused by the re
lieved tension of overwrought nerves
which recked not of what was safe
and sane and what was dangerous
whil the. Monday celebration 'was the
outpouring of Joy unconfihed but held
within bounds by the lessons learned
Thursday. v i
, Parade Big" Feature. .' -
Starting early Monday morning tho
city slowly prepared itself for the
cumulation of the celebration in a
monster "every citizen" parade In the
afternoon. A bell ringing quartet
from the Santa Fe shops started the
ball rolling as early as 6 o'clock Mon
day morning, and these four held
sway until nearly 8 o'clock. The city
refused to go without its breakfaBt,
and until about 8:30 o'clock organized
demonstration was sidetracked.
Then the boys and girls from the
hgl school declared an additional
Iiay's holiday, formed a line of parade
ana aia a snake ctance up ana down
Kansas avenue. In a short time' the
high school contingent was given sup
port and soon outdistanced by "the
full force of workers from the Santa
Fe shops, who swung into the avenue
headed by the- Santa Fe apprentice
band. These two parades set the pace
for the day and long before noon the
details of the monster "every citizen"
affair were worked out and the in
Washburn Boys In It.
Every available bit of military glory
the city could muster was called into
action and mobilized to give the pa
rade the proper war time tinge. The
Washburn unit of the student army
training corps made its first appear
ance, on the streets of Topeka. Led
by Captain Shaw and Lieutenants
Blackburn, Heap and Munk the Wash
burn men held the plaee.of honor in
the procession immediately behind
Marshall's band. The1, five Topeka
companies of thejliansas state guard
and the two state guard bands were In
the line, marching with the free and
easy tread of long training.
Four divisions of the parade w-ere
formed officially, tho it is altogether
impossible to begin to enumerate the
dozens of other divisions which formed
of their own free will and accord and
Joined in the parade. Thousands of
trucks and automobiles, most of them
full of all kinds of noise, were in the
line and kept the tension of the crowd
screwed to the highest pitch.
After the noon hour impromptu pa
rades kept the streets full of moving
vans of noise at irregular intervals
thruout tho afternoon and far into the
nigh. There was no a single moment
after 8 o'clock Monday morninp when
some parade or incipient parade was
not in motion on the streets.
l-lag Raised HigH:
One of the features of the morning
celebration was at 10:50 o'clock when
Tom Rumbely climbed to the top of
the 150 foot Beatrice Creamery- com
pany smokestack and planted there a
big American flag.
At 1 o'clock In the afternoon the
street cars of the city adjourned serv
ice for a period of three and one-half
hours, In this way fittingly accepting
the all importance of the ending of
the war. Never, before in the history
of the city has the street railway
stopped its service and taken its cars
from the street during the busy part
of the day. Not even when the heroes
of tho famous Twentieth Kansas
marched home was the street car
But one accident, so far reported,
marred the celebration In Topeka.
This accident was at Fifth and Van
Buren streets and was caused when
a built on superstructure on an auto
truck gave way on a corner and caused
Miss Sylvia Green, 618 Monroe street,
to fall to the ground. Miss Green was
severely injured, according' to the doc
tors, and was removed to a local hos
pital. HANiTTWQ NEGROES

Amorlrnn 26tl Division Marched as
(By the Associated Press)
Verdup, Nov. ll.--Vrdun came
into its own tonight. While the bells
of the ancient cathedral were ringing
the news of peace, the fortress city
was illuminated and a military pro
cession headed by the drum corps of
the 26th American division swung
along the crowded streets, accom
panied by a detachment of French
buglers representing the famed de
fenders of Verdun.
Only a few hours before, the Ger
mans had their own large shells within
the city walls, apparently as a re
minder that A erdun was still within
range of their guns on the hills to the
A large American flag was carried
by the men of the New England di
vision, the tri-color of France by the
French buglers. The soldiers were
joined by a few civilians w'ho had
straggled back into Verdun since the
German repulse on the north.-
The procession wound Its way thru
the streets lighted by flares and vari
colored signal lights sent oft by in
fantrymen. The entire city was in a
great blaie of glory an4 the illumi
nation was A'isible for many miles
around even to the Germans going
homeward in the east. Behind the
buglers marched a shouting, singing
dancing column of French, American,
Senegalese and Algerian soldiers and
civilians celebrants, keeping time
with the drum beats and shouting: -
"The war is over, Vive La France,
Vive L'Amerique." The marchers pa
raded until they were tired, the bell
ringers rang the chimes until they
were exhausted and the flares burned
themselves out. And late tonight the
American and French soldiers and the
handful of faithful civilians in Verdun
went to sleep in peace.

While the all-citizen parade went
skidding up and down the avenue all
day Monday, furnishing its own cur

ginning to take a series of, long
breaths after the hardest stretch of
labor they had ver.done or probably
ever will do.
The "hello" girls stayed on the Job
and many of them were called out of

to go on duty,, acting as a public in

that the whistles and the bells and the
horns were all proclaiming the truth

The chief operator, Mrs. Alice Baird,
heard the first peal of the hells, and
a few minutes after 3 o'clock she- was
at her desk In the telephone office.
She received notice that the war was
over, and that the news was official.
All calls could be answered to that ef
fect. It took about five minutes to
find out that "all calls" meant more
than could possibly be handled by the
night force on duty. The girls who
lived close to the office, whose regu
lar hour for going on duty was 6
o'clock, were called out, and were in
their places "plugging in" as fast as
their hands could fly by 3:30 o'clock.
Couldn't Handle Calls.
"AfteB that," Mrs. Baird said, "we
got out the girls who go on duty at
eight, and had them at the board about
s.x. Thre are 40 positions at the
switch board,'1 Mrs. Baird continued.
"tho a shortage of help has cut down
our force somewhat. But sixty girls
couldn't have handled all the calls
that came with anything" like the
promptness that We- expect of thenrl
unoer normal conditions; '
"The average number of calls we
handle a day is between 75,000 and
0,p00. The calls that we answered
Monday probably went to the number
ot 150,000. The greatest number
came between 3 and 1 o'clock in the
morning, and the extra calls about the
peace pact were practieally over by
2:30 in the afternoon."
The long distance girls had no easier
time than the lscal ouerators. .As soon
as the news of the signing of the ar.
mistice reache Topeka, the Joy In the
hearts of the neoole of the town over
flowed in a desire to communicate the
