The employes of the secretary of state's office spent considerable time today look ing up the records of the incorporation of Washburn college. They were un successful, and nothing was found show ing that the college was a chartered in stitution. They ransacked the office of the secretary of state and historical society.- If the college has not been chartered it will involve a great deal of trouble. The college association has lent thous ands of dollars on Topeka and Shawnee county property, taking first mortgages. When the mortgages were released, the releases were signed by the president of the college board. If the institution is not chartered, it is probable that these releases are not valid, and the titles to a great deal of property in the city and county would be greatly impaired. The only record in the secretary of state's office so far found shows that in IStiJ the name of Lincoln college was changed to Washburn. ' It is thought that the college may have beeu chartered by act of the legis lature, but no record of that fact has so far been fonnd. G. P. Kincade, a loan agent, is attempt ing to find the articles of incorporation to perfect a title to real estate bought by parties out of the state. Dr. McVicar, the president of the college, says that the corporation was organized in lbt2, when the law did not require the filing of a charter. CHANGES AT WASHBCKS. A Number of the Professors to Leave For Various Reasons. There is to be considerable of a change at Washburn college next year, and from present indications it is likely that there will be five new members on the faculty board. Miss Caroline Durgan, who is the ma tron at the cottages and instructor in English literature, has announced her in tention of leaving. She is going abroad this summer and will probably not return to this country for a year. Another one on the list is Miss Maud Falkerson, the instructor in German and French. It is understood that her application for the situation was not received by the man agement and that she does not intend to teach at Washburn this year. Fordyce P. Cleaves, professor of elocu tion, has announced that he will proba bly not return. Prof. F. Ellis, Greek teacher, will leave the college, it is said for his health. The fifth one Is Prof. F. W. Scott, of the preparatory department. It is un derstood that he will leave, but no reas ons are given. XodeSnite arrangements have as yet been mads to fill the vacan cies. It was rumored some time ago that Dr. Peter McVicar would resign as president of the college, within a year or two and go to California, but this seems to have been a false report. Dr. McVicar is one of the best men to solicit funds for the college in the east that has been known among western col leges. It was for the purpose of giving him more time to attend to these matters that Prof. Clarence Greeley was brought here and placed at the head of the doc tor's classes. LOOKS LIKE TRIMMING Gentlemen of the Board of Bail road Assessors, ARE YOU GOING TO REDUCE TAXES Ob the Hall roads This YsrJ-Why Did the Board Adjoara fnm the X.O-K-al Date to May SB 1 The state board of railroad assessors will not be in a hurry about making pub lic its action on the assessment of the railroad property this year. This board which is composed of Lieu tenant Governor Daniels; Secretary of State Osborn; Auditor Van B. Prather; State Treasurer Biddle, and Attorney General Little met on the third Monday in April this year as required bylaw, but they immediately adjourned until May 22d. It is understood that a plan has been conceived by which the railroad assess ment will be reduced this year and the report will be withheld from the public until after the action of the Populist state convention, and if the present ad ministration should be renominated, until after election. State Auditor Van. B. Prather as secre tary of the board of railroad assessors has written a letter to every county clerk in the state in which he seeks to excuse the action of the board in adjourning until May 22 without making the assess ment. He says the adjournment was taken to give the railroads time to send in the returns, but as a matter of fact all the railroads have sent in their returns except a coal switch at Leavenworth and and a line eight miles long in south eastern Kansas. Another excuse given by Auditor Prather is that the board desires to know the value of real estate in the varioua in the state before fixing the assessment, but heretofore the railroad assessors have never considered the value of real es tate. That the board intends to reduce the assessment is made more apparent by a statement in this remarkable letter which reads: "The law says property must be assessed at its actual cash value, but no penalty is attached, hence it is never doue; and if it was we would have a large sum of money piled up in the treasury not needed." This reform administration propose to openly violate the law in regard to the railroad assessment making the excuse that it has always been done and if they obeyed the law too much money would be collected from the railroads. When the board adjourned it was thought that the Populist state conren tion would be held either on May 23rd or 31st, and by postponing the meeting of the board until about that time they would avoid all questions on the assess ment at the state convention and thereby escape being turned down as the mem bers of the last board of railroad asses sors were. They want to avoid the fate of Ives, Stover and Hovey. If the members of the present board are renominated by the state convention they will probably delay their proceed ing as assessors in such a manner that they will not be made public until after election. KANSAS FLAX INDUSTRY. Million of Dollars Worth of Fiber Goes to Waste Every Year. Governor Lewelling has received a long letter from Hugh II. Lamont of San Francisco about the flax industry in Kansas. He says that the most valuable part of the fiax is the fiber and that it now goes to waste as the present system of threshing entirely destroys the liber. He estimates that in the 100,000 acres of flax raised in Kansas there is a yearlv loss of $1,500,000. He estimates 250 pounds of fiber to the acre and the price at 6 cents per pound. He has invented a thresher that does not injure the fiber and separates the seed. He sent a bundle of the straw after it had been threshed to show that the method is effective. BETTING ON COXET. G. Bohrer Say Populists Look to the Movement for Campaign Material. Hon. G.

"The Coxey movement is bringing every thing to the front that the people want. The people have demanded the legisla tion in their party platforms for thirty years and now the people are going to Washington to ask for it Their peti tions will not be granted and they will down the other fellows at the polls." OT A CANDIDATE, W. D. Vincent Says lie Doesn't Want to Bo Governor of Kansas. Railroad Commissioner W. D. Vincent, who has been mentioned as a candidate for governor, said today, I am not a can didate for governor, under any circum stances.
