STATE JOURNAL, TUESDAY E VEXING, APRIL, 24, 1S94.
MUST STAY AT HOME. Boys and Girls Under 16 Can't Bun the streets BETWEEN MSE P. JS. AND FIVE A. E Councilman Ettlios-er'e Ordinance Woes Thronsh, Col. Brtei Aloo Votlns Affalnst I Other Matter. Councilman Ettliuger's pet ordinance, one to prevent children from loitering on "the streets, avenues, alley and com mons," from 9 p.m. until 5 a. m.,came up last night and after considerable debate, was padded. When City Attorney Tillotson prepared the ordinance he left the age of the children to whom the ordinance was to year, the coionei saia, uw uui. can make a great deal more disturbance than a young one can. We are getting now so that when our girls are 18 years old they are young ladies; and so are the boys. Laughter. I mean so are the boys, young men." Mr. Bradford said if the age was re duced much lower the police would soon be "arresting 2-year-old's." He said also that the bovs in Lis and many other neighborhoods made the night hideous with their veils and cat-calls. Col. Burgess replied that pretty soon the boys and girls couldn't talk over the gate without fear of arrest, and parents would have to drop in at the city prison every morning and get their children out. Mr. Fulton put himself on record as opposed to "young rowdyism" and in favor of anything that will check it. Mr. Ettlinger replied that the'ordi nance was not meant to apply to"my chil dren and yours, they know how to be have themselves and mind their own business." It was meant to-apply to other people's children who do not possess this virtue. The ordinance is made to apply to children who loaf around the opera houses, billiard halls and other public places, smoking cigarettes, as well as other children who are simply too noisy. When the ordinance came on its final passage there was a clerical error in the copy, and had it not been detected the unfortunate children of Topeka would have been liable to a fine of $0 for being ou the streets "from 9 a. m. till 5 p. m." Mr. Bradford observed "That ought to keep'em iu out of the wet." This was corrected. The ordinance passed with only Col. Burgess voting against it SeWer Xumber Sixteen. Contractor C J. Rosen will not build sewer No. 16 at present. Not until his bid, which wp.s opened last night, is passed on by the committee on sewers, to which it was referred. It would ap pear that Mr. Rosen, with that foresight which is requisite to a contractor, had an inkling tnat his would be the only bid. It was not necessary for him to make his bid too small. Under the cir cumstances he was the lowest bidder anyhow. He therefore offered to do the work for f5.893.7U. His previous bid for the same work was $ 4,833.73, or a difference of $1,010, an increase of about 25 per cent in price. Among the prices quoted were the following: "eT7 bM. Old bid. Manholes (each) $40 00 W) Inlets (each). 12 00 8 00 Loose rock (per yard 53 39 Connections 6 00 2 00 Manholes, per ft. over 10 ft. 3 50 2 00 This bid was also accompanied by a proviso that the acceptance of the bid was not to be construed by the council ss any forfeiture of the claims of Mr. Rosen in his former contract; or that he might bring a suit for damages at any time. The council didn't like this bid and all but a few said so. They couldn't under stand why the sewer should cost 25 per cent, more now than last fall. Mr. Fel lows explained that by saying that Mr. Rosen was fairly entitled to some margin by reason of the delay, that the material had been on the ground six months and Mr. Rosen was paying interest ou his money. After considerable debate the matter was referred to the committee on sewers and water works, with the understand ing that it should be reported on in two weeks.

Railroad Xew or General Interest Xtes and Penonal. Moved by- the success it had in the same line last year, the Rock Island Rail road company will this year renew its efforts at rainmaking in southwestern Kansas, Oklahoma and at such other points as may demand it. Last summer I during the dry season rain fell, through ine ettorts 01 the Koca Island rain depart ment (or at least it is credited with it) at points on its line where there was no fin at all in any other parts of the state. TB management of the road therefore feels encouraged to try its experiment again. Only one outfit was out last year but this season at least ten rainmaking outfits will be in readiness to respond promptly to the call of drought threatened sections of the road's territory. The idea was in augurated and carried out by Chief Dis patcher C. B. Jewell at Goodland, Kas., and he will have charge of the' rainmak ing department again this season.

Probably all that can do so of the Santa Fe conductors and trainmen will attend the union meeting at Newton next Sun day afternoon.

DOESN'T BELIEVE IT. The Former Attorney of the Pullman Company on the Strike. fred Ennis of Chicago is at the Cope land today. Mr. Ennis was for several years the regularly employed attorney of the Pullman Car company, but re tired a little more than two years ago to begin a general practice in Chicago with his son, who has since died. Mr. Ennis is now carrying on the practice alone. A State Journal reporter this after noon asked him about the strike of the Pullman employes which has been an nounced to occur on May 1st and would involve over 4,000 men. "I don't believe it," said he; "I have read the announcement but I take no stock in it. The Pullman company is disposed to be very fair with its em ployes and is on very good terms with them.. I should be surprised if the men went out. The company has had very little trouble in this way and hopes to be free from it always. I should say the rumor is hardly worth any attention."
