A bill "to amend the penal code so ..that combinations of workingnien for legitimate purposes cannot be punished Tinder the conspiracy clauses" has been introduced into the New York State Assembly. The bill provides that "no act shall be deemed unlawful because done or agreed to be done by a num ber of persons which would not have been deemed unlawful if done or agreed to be done by a single person.9 Frederick Yiujeks, the war artist oftheLoHdon Graphic, who is now visiting this country, is very much im pressed -with the Dicuresqce affect of The Kansas alien land law is in lino with those of Indiana, HIinois, and the United States. Soon or late all the agricultural States will bo found pro hibiting the ownership of land in large quantities at any rate, to any but citizens or persons who have signified their intent of becoming citizens. But the bill now before the Kansas Legis lature contains a provision which might well have been grafted upon the land laws of other States. It permits an alien to become tho owner of any quantity of farming land less than 160 acres. This is not enough to create danger of alien landlordism, and is enough to bind the owner to the laws and constitution of the country. There are very few anarchists who own real estate; none who own and cultwato small farms. The pharmacists throughout HIinois, or a great majority of them, are op posed to the present pharmacy law, and the bill introduced in the State Senate to repeal the act is likely to receive hearty support. The history of the law is given as follows in a circular: About four years ago a Email nnmbar of drug men got together and called themselves "Drug gists Association," or "Drug Union of the State of Illinois. They appointed aboard knovm as tho "Board of Pharmacy." drummed up a law known as the drug law of the State, and had themselves appointed as Bald board. This board has the power to levy a special tax of S3 on every drug man in the State. They use this money to crush eTery drug man who will not sign the contract. Ask the board that Is living on our money, and who will come to you this winter for more lawi, if they. were not appointed" by the Bloomington meeting, and if there is not a resolution now before that association, that tnis Doara has to report to, to put every man that will not join this wicked combination on the blacklist. fimtlroad Commissioners om Soft Frleght Bates. There were present Judr;e Jsmes Humphrey, Hon. A. B. Greene and Major A. Gillett, a full board with the follow ing railway representatives and visitors: Mayor S. F. Neely, of Leavenworth; W. E. Thomas, of the state's mine; Super intendent J.E. Oarr and J. Douglas, Leavenworth coal company; CoL M. Quigg, coal agent Santa Fe; John Bov ard, of Keith & Perry, Kansas City; L. B. Hynes, general freight agent Santa Fe; J. A. Monroe, of Omaha, general freight agent Union Pacific; F.B. Whit ney, assistant general freight agent Union Pacific, Kansas City; 0. V. Lewis, assistant general freight agent Missouri Pacific; Mr. Hatch, of the Bieh HOI Coal & Mining company; M.L. Sareent. of Kansas City, general freight agent Mem phis route; Henry Isaacs, representing Osage county mines; D. Atwood, gen eral freight agent Chicago, Kan sas & Nebraska; Assistant Freight Agent Cook, of the Santa Fe; L C. Hatch, representing the Missouri Pacific coal interests. Judge Humphrey called the meeting to order and said the board had to deal with two propositions, one originating with the legislature in the adoption of a concurrent resolution in which they char acterize the present soft coal rates as ex horbitantly high and direct the board to bring about a reduction which will bring Kansas coal within the reach of the peo ple of the western part of the state. The second proposition originates with the Leavenworth Coal company, which claims that an unjust discrimination is practiced against them. The railroad men were invited here to discuss the whole question and say what reduotion could be made in justice to all. The board would be required to formulate a hnal opinion and it was their wish to harmonize all interests involved. An hour was spent in informal dis cussion and examination of maps and tariffs, after which, es no one else seemed inclined to talk, Judge Humphrey said it would probably be necessary to formu late a tariff not only in general but in detail, and asked several questions as to what disturbance certain changes would create. Mr. Hynes, of the Santa Fe, said the tariffs as they now stand, are the result of years of experimenting. It would create considerable disturbance to have new rates put in effect in one section and not in all. Jb or instance, a reduo tion between Leavenworth and Con cordia would drive Frontenao coal out of competition. He said the representa tives of the KanBBs roads had been in session for the past six weeks trying to adjust Kansas rates generally, and had among other things discussed the coal rates. They had finally left the tariff just ss it was last year. There was no friction between the roads on this tariff as there probably would be with a new one. Mr. Hynes said some reduction might be made by his road to western consum ers, but he did not know that it would benefit the consumers any, as the bulk of their coal came from the west. There had been a big reduction in the past two years. He explained why it would not ba profitable to haul west bound coal at rates which would pay very well on east bound coal. In the latter case it would avoid hauling empty cars, while going west tneir cars are all niiea with mer chandise. Mayor Noely, speaking for the Leav enworth company, among other things said that the idea was to oppress the Leavenworth coal companies. He ad mitted that the time had been when the discrimination was much more against them than at present when they had practically been confined to a local mar ket. They are now reaching out a little, but the discrimination still restricts then field. He gave some figures showing that the rates were much higher on coal in one direction than another over the same road, etc. Mr. Monroe, of the Union Pacific, raised the point that the legislative res olution contained nothing in regard to fixing the price at which dealers Bhould sell coal, and in the discussion that fol lowed, it was claimed that while the rail roads had steadily been reduced for the past few years, as soon as winter came on the operators and coal dealers threw aside all care for the suffering settler and made every dollar they could on their coal. It was finally determined that the board should go ahead and formulate such a revised tariff as in their opinion the exigencies of the occasion might re quire, and upon the completion of their work should notify the railroad repre sentatives to meet them again, inspect their figures and try to arrive at a har monious adjustment of the matter. The meeting then adjourned subject to the call of the board. AGAIN OUT. The Oklahoma Boomers More Herded. Once Bunched Like Cattle and Driven Over the Trails North, and South Hiding1 in the Woods and Beaten Out of the Brush Like Babbits. Wichita, Kin., March 19. The boomers were, Saturday, in a frightful state of de moralization. The rumor reached Okla homa City that the troops were en rente from Fort Beno to drive them away oct of the country. They fled in terror to the woods and bushes, taking with them all their valuables. The soldiers, a troop of the Fifth cavalry, under command of Lieu tenant Carson, arriving at noon, commenced immediately to search for tho boomers, beating the bush and scouring the woods. They had eoon gathered quite a body and driving them before they started for the Kansas line, after burning tboir huts and tearing down tents and dugouts. No excuse was reoeivel and all found who had no per mits were takes. Captain Hays started also from the Cherokee strip with Troop K and intends to carry before him to the south all he finds. Many reports are made of severe treatment, but nothing definite regarding such is known. Serious trouble is. how ever, feared before the soldier raid is ended. Seven Prisoners Escape. Kansas City, Mo., March 19. One mur derer, five burglars aud one horse thief escaped from the Wyandotte county jail in Kansas City. Kan. The men who escaped were ".Red" Quinn, Mike MoCain, Fred Dawson, William Baum, Henry Hardy, Henry Kafferty and Sam Thomas. The men cut a hole through a twelve inch brick wall. The jail has besn in a notoriously bad con dition for some time. Tnemen who escaped were the worst confined in the jail. The first intimation the jailers had that anything was wrong, was when John Bowl ing heard some one on the street crying: "Your prisoners are escaping." He ran to the gate and found Mr. W. Mount outside who, when driving his team up Kansas avenue, hadsean the men jumping over the high board fence surrounding the jail. He jumped off his wagon and seizing an iron shovel headed "Bed" Quinn off and marched him back to the jail gate. When Mount Btarted to pnll the bell, "Bed" made a quick dive under Mount's arm and escaped down Eighth street. The attaches of the jail were by this time thoroughly aroused and Btarted out in pursuit of the escaped prisoners, but did not succeed in canturiutr any of them. As soon as the excitement subsided an ex amination was made to see from what part of the building the delivery bad been made. It did not take long to find it. On the ground floor to the east of the iron calls in the tath room, there is a narrow passage, probabably three feet wide, leading from the cells to it. In this Dassace the escaoed men had cut a hole in the wall (the north wall of the building) and dropped out into the jail yard and then there was only a twelve-foot fence between them and free dom. They had placed a wheelbarrow against the fence and used it as a stepping stone. The wall cut through was a twelve inch brick, and the hole web about 15x20 inches. A small lather's hatchet lying on the pile of broken brick showed by what means the hole had been cat through. Alton TUflroad company, denks the trot of a published dispatch wbioh states that hie road had signed circular letter "A," binding that corporation to eeae paying commitfiona on passenger business, and that this concession was made in order tn secure a removal of the boycott which the i rrunc lines naa declared against it for such payment.'. The Doyco.t took the form of a refusal of the trunk lines to sell ticket over the Alton road at their offices. Speaking of this matter Mr. Charlton said: "We have not departed one iota from our position on the commission question. We have not rigned oiroalar letter "A," and have no intention of doing so. The lines boycotting us placed our tickets on sale un conditionally. We are as we have been in the past and expect to be in the future, first, last and all the time unreservedly and une quivocally in favor of the payment of a rea sonable commission to ticket agents." Judge Chandler. Washington. D. C, March 19. The Kan sas delegation waited on the president and presented the name of Judge George Chand ler of Independence, for the position of first assistant secretary of the interior. This action was the final outcome of a number of conferences the delegation ha3 had, at which the names of Judge Sluss and Colonel Halloweil of Wichita, and Judge Glass of Oswego, in addition to Judp. andler's, have been under considerati l. ior this place. An agreement was finally reached and action was taken as above stated. While the consultation with the president was being held, the Nebraska dslejates came in, and when notified of the action of the Kansas men, added their endorsement of Judge Chandler's candidacy. Senator Plumb was seen this evening and expressed great confidence that the appointment would be made. LATEST NEWS. Condensed for the Convenience of Harried Readers.
