5 FURNITURE THOMPSON OROS.' noAipaoN Jjuoa nnt KANSAS AVE. OaU KANSAS AVE. 617-619 QUINCY tUINCY ST. ST. LOW OW PRICED R1CED FURNITURE. URNITURE. We venture the assertion that our price on what is ordinarily termed "cheap furniture" is from 10 per cent to 50 per cent cheaper than in stallment houses give their custom era for the doubtful privilege of a well taxed, time payment. A lady told us that she paid $33 for a chamber suit that we are glad to sell anyone for 18. There may be criticism of, but there can be no question of the exercise of a per son's privilege to buy in that way. The conclusive evidence it presents to a sane mind, however, is that such people have "money to fling at the dogs," or else are, nnnncially speak ing, criminally indil'erent to their own best interests. We are just as keen to serve those who wish to buy the well-made, lower priced furni ture ui those who are able to buy the best We wish to state right here j that our low-priced furniture haa no taint of inferiority on it; is the best for j the price the market contains. It i will be well for those to whom this information partakes of the nature of news to avail themselves of it in the day of need, if they care to save their hard earnings. THOSE IMPORTED HOSE IMPORTED English Enameled Iron Bedsteads have, after a tedious waiting, ar rived. The use of iron bedsteads as well as brass is almost universal in European countries. Their use is to be commended on strictly sanita rian grounds. It is impossible for vermin to find a lodging place on one, thus making an iron bedstead a pure and wholesome bed. For the 'girl's room" we have ' a splendid value in an iron bed, something in the nature of a cot, that can be folded up, if necessary; they are fitted with a permanently attached heavy, woven wire mattress, are just the thing for a small room and are low in price for such an admirable con struction. Prices being for bedsteads, 3 foot wide. $6 and $7. Handsome, Enam elled Iron Bedsteads, with brass dec orations, are worth from $15 to $25 each. Brass Bedsteads, prize beau ties, worthy to grace the boudoir of an empress, the apex and acme of elegance, for $125, well worth $200. THE TfTOMAN UK VI OMAN Who can afford to own and who will not look at our new line of Cheffoniers, those indespensable ap purtenances of the modern home, is surely insensible to "beauty made more beautiful" in wood by the cun ning artifice of the master workman. Such a display we never heretofore even attempted as we now show on our floors. Despite the attractive qualities of the Cheffoniers, the prices are absurdly low. In polished oak from $10 to $50 each. 0 UR TIFFORTS UR JJFF0RT3 To Irradiate Topeka homes with some of the best products of American furniture, are meeting with the meas ure of success and appreciation that naturally spurs us on to renewed en deavor. One of the many results of our customers' continuous approba tion is seen in the line of willow or rather reed and rattan rockers, chairs, reception chairs, tables and work baskets, all of them distinctively rep resentative of the latest styles. To get the good new styles that are the prevalent mode in the cities we wil lingly pay the prices, rightly believ ing oiv ladies entitled to the pick of the markets' best goods. SIDEBOARDS. IDEBOARDS. From the standpoint of attractive ness our line of Sideboards is a deci ded succes. It is a pleasure and sat isfaction to view them on our floors. How much greater pleasure would they inspire on the floor of your dining room I Carved effects and high polish are the pronounced features on some low priced Side boards. From $17 to $S0 each.

They Arrive at Leavenworth at Midnight Saturday. CAMPED OS THE RESERVE. Leavenworth loea Xt Blke the Ideas or Their Helms Tbere-Hw Xhey I.-ft Here. The Leavenworth Times Sunday morn ing says: General John Sherman Sanders and hia 455 followers, comprising the Cripple Creek contingent of the army of the commonweal, are encamped on the open prairie on the military reservation, one mile above Leavenworth, on the site of what was known as the old Rock Island round house. They arrived in the city at 1:4:30 o'clock this morning over the Santa Fe road in a special train of seven passenger coaches in. charge of ten United States marshals, each armed with a Winchester. The train was run through to the gov ernment rifle range, but for" some reason the train was ordered back to the city, arriving at the Santa Fe depot at 1 :15 a. m. Cars were opened and, under the di rection of the deputies, the Coxeyites tumbled out into Shawnee street and were quickly formed into six companies by "General" Sanders. A guide had been provided and a large American flag was uufurled at the end of the tall stall and placed at the head of the column. Each company was officered. Many of the men carried blankets, tin cups and paper buckets. A few carried small flags, much as children would at a Sun day school picnic. There was one large flag rolled lightly about its staff. -Marshal Neely, who had occupied a car with "General" Sanders, was not seen near the column. The line, with the general at the head, marched slowly east, on Shawnee street, a well built, sturdy body of men, all wearing substantial clothing, and ap parently well prepared, by the rest, for their march. As the companies tiied past police headquarters, about 1:3J, they presented a grotesque appearance, yet they kept good time and marched in step with the precision of trained soldiers. There was a dead white horse in front of police headquarters and many low re marks were made about it as the column passed it, "Good roast that would make," said one. "See how he's puffed up. Must be stuffed," said another. "-Break away," said a tall fellow with a coyote hat. "There's your white horse where's the red head?" "In our flag," called out a voice. In the third company a burly looking man said to a reporter who was standing near the line: "We're Coxeyites all right." Shortly after the commonwealers had reached their destination "General" San ders and the United States marshal were driven back to the National hotel, where a number of army'officers arrived shortly before 2 o'clock and a general confer ence was held, Sanders participating. It was how to provide subsistence for the regiment of idle men on the reserve. The marshal will probably do as he did in Topeka, buy provisions at any price and present his claim to the government. There are very few epare tents in the garrison, not enough to furnish shelter for any great body of men. There are 1,000 extra rations on hand in the garri son, but that amount will not feed the Coxeyites until Wednesday. Two or three of the leaders will probably be tried and the remainder set at liberty here. CALLS IT AX OUTRAGE. The Leavenworth "Times" Didn't Want the Wsalcru to Cm. The Leavenworth Times says editorially about the coming of Sanders' army to Leavenworth: "The bringing of the Sanders army here is an outrage upon Leavenworth. It was left optional with Marshal Neely what should be done with them and he decided to bring them to prey upon his own town. "At Topeka these men were allowed to wander at will about the streets, and it is to be presumed that it will be bo here. "These men are of Governor Lewel ling's kind and they ought to have been kept at Topeka where he could have cared for them. They will be a menace to our city and in the end it will proba bly cost the city a great deal to get rid of them. It's a great thing to have a United States marshal from our own city!" HOW IHEI LEFI TOPEKA. Women WaTid Handkerchiefs svnd Men Their Hats Much Cheering-. United States Marshal Neely found it convenient Saturday evening, when public sentiment against him on account of his apparent intention to finally un load the commonwealers on Topeka, be came so evident to put his army on a Santa Fe special and take the entire brigade over to Leavenworth. It was a few minutes after 6 o'clock that Marshal Neely made known his de termination to leave Topeka with his prisoners. He explained his change in plans by saying that he had just received a dispatch from Washington giving him discretionary power in the matter, and he had decided that he could feed and guard the army better if they were camped on the military reservation at Ft. Leavenworth. It is generally understood, however, that the real reason Marshal Neely hustled out of Topeka with his army prisoners was because of the growing sentiment here that Topeka had done as much for them as could be expected, and was not delighted with the prospect that they might be left on our hands after they were discharged. When the men at "Camp Sanders" heard that they were to be taken to "Leavensworth," as they called it at 7 o'clock, their protests were loud. "The people of Topeka have treated us hand somely," one of them said, "and we don't want to leave. Over at Leavenworth they will pen us tip with United States soldiers, and we never will get a chance to go east." The grumbling continued until General Sanders appeared and as sured his men that they were not to be under the surveillance of the regulars, when all were soon busy rolling up their . blankets and qnilta and collecting their other camp equipage. They were soon on board the cars and a great crowd of To peka people gathered outside to see them off. A large part of the crowd were women, many being handsomely dressed ladies who had come down in their car riages to see the commonwealers, and l found that they would have to et out and approach the cp.rs in order to satisfy their curiosity. They sang their songs and cheered intermittently. Three cheers were called for and loudly given for Topeka. three cheers for "The ladies of Topeka," tbree cheers for "the Statk Jocrkal," and three cheers for Govern or Lewelling. Gen. Sandera climbed on top of the cars and made a little speech in which he said that he had traveled all over the United States, Canada and Central America and that he had never met a more generous and kindhearted people in his life. He and his men would always remember Topeka warmly. When the train finally moved out the 2,000 people standing in the moonlight gave them such an ovation that ' one would have thought they were a regi ment of brave men going away to the wars instead of a crowd of plain work ingmen out of employment The cheer ing was ear-splitting, women waved their handkerchiefs and men their hats. This scene was repeated at the Santa Fe depot, where the train stopped a few minutes and another big crowd had as sembled. GEN. SANDERS' STATEMENT. Ho Says His Men Couldn't Got Work at Any Price. To the Citizens of Kansas: There has come to me the rumor that my command is composed of striking miners who have refused to work for $3 a day. The rumor is wholly untrue. They are not strikers and labor at any price was not to be had by them. The mines have been closed by the owners and what little work is left in the camps around Cripple Creek is performed by married men who, too poor to leave, are compelled to stay and who now work on limited time at the very lowest wages. My men are largely sturdy, sober young men who are out of employment by necessity, but who have been industrious when any opportunity has offered, and who claim to be fair American citizens, very unfortunately situated. Gkx. J. S. Sanders. Topeka, Kan., May 12. BASE BALL AND STATE. Two Base Ball Club Organlio at the State House. A base ball club has been organized at the state house. There will be two nines, one in the east wing, to be known as the ' Governor's Pets," and the other one from the west wing, will be known as "Farmers' Pride." The opposing nines are made up from nearly ail the offices, but it is understood that the governor has refused to play. In lieu of the governor, however, John W. Bieidenthal and Geo. W. Clark will represent the heavyweights. In the west wine all efforts to secure the assistance of State Treasurer Biddle failed, and the treasurer's office will be represented by the assistant, Geo. M. Seward, who, it is said, will be able to make the run from first to third in two strides. The members of the clubs are: GOVEEXOR'8 PETS. FARMERS' PRIDlt J. W. Breidenthal, W. E. Topping, Geo. W. Clark, Geo. M. Seward, S. M. Scott, M. D. Henderson, H. B. Kepley, H. T. Brown, R. C. Osborn, W. G. Hubbard, D. B. Owens, Burr .La Is in, Harry Oliver, J. C Mohler, N. N. Neber, ,WD. Strubbla. J. R. Holcomb. Wm. Sweezey. The men have done some practicing. but no arrangements have been made for a game. AT HAMILTON HALL. The Republican State Convention to Meet There Other Arrangements. The Republicans of Topeka are mak ing arrangements for the entertainment of the Republican state convention which is to be held here June 6th. A meeting for that purpose was held at the Copeland Saturday night. P. G. Noel was chairman of the meet ing and Arthur Capper secretary. The following executive committee was ap pointed: D. C. Tillotson, Geo. H. Evans, Frank Brooks, Geo. W. Crane, James Ramsey, Arthur Capper, O. K. Swayze, George Higgins, W. F. Ellison, W. E. Brubaker and Sam Grosch. The finance committee is composed of P. G. Noel, Major T. J. Anderson and O. K. Swayze. The committee will secure Hamilton hall for the convention. MARRIAGE AND DIVORCE. A greater number of -widowers remar ry in Spain than in any other country in Europe. In no country has the marriage rate declined bo greatly in recent years aa in Ireland. The greater portion of divorces take place between the fifth and tenth year of married life. Twenty-five states and territories for bid marriage between white and "col ored' people. In the last 25 years the marriages in Russia have numbered 11,820,000; thedi vorces, 18,411, or about one to every 1,000 marriages. San Francisco has the greatest propor tion of divorces to marriages of any city in the world. For every 10,000 marriages there are 2,233 divorces. The Greeks had two forms of divorce sending away, going away. In the fix6t the wife was dismissed; in the second her leaving was voluntary. In Minnesota a decree was given to the wife because "the defendant never cuts his toe nails, and being restless in hie sleep scratches the plaintiff severely." Of 1,549 marriages contracted in Prus sia in 1889 between blood relations, 1,422 were between cousins, 110 between un cles and nieces and 16 between aunts and nephews. Illinois leads the states in divorces. During the 20 years ending with 1880 there were 36,072; Ohio came next with 26,361; Indiana had 25,193; Pennsylva nia, 16,020; New York, 15,855; Missouri, 15,278. Nearly all the states fix a period, aftei the expiration of which a husband oi wife abandoned by the other becomes legally free. The period is from two to seven years, and the absence must be counted from the time the last tidings were received from the absent- partner, rumors not being considered as tidings.

Every man that needs a nickname has been christened "Coxey." It is as much fun to see a big circus unload as it is to see the show itself. Nothing is so inspiring as a railroad man's contempt for another railroad. Gen. Sanders will return to Topeka and organize two companies of wealera here. It was a Kansas City girl who recently wore $250 worth of violets in one even ing. J udge Doster of Marion is in the city after an absence from the state of sev eral weeks. What-a magnificent thing it is that the biggest temper always belongs to the littlest man. A Fifth avenue cigar store has on ex hibition a mounted cannon made entirely of rolled tobacco. A large audience listened to an excel lent concert by Marshall's band yester day at Garfield Park. After trying for three years Ringling's circus has come to Topeka when the weather is at its be3t. It is said that the "club" under the old Adams house in North Topeka does a "laud office" business. The old "Sunday Sun" was sold on the streets Saturday and Sunday without fear of police interference. The sub-senior class of the high school will occupy the upper boxes at the Grand on commencement night. George H. Evans commenced work on the court house site today with about a dozen teams and scrapers. Percy A. Stockbridge, a champion crack-shot with a rifle, gave an exhibi tion at Vinewood park yesterday. Adjutant General E. L. Connell, of the Sanders army says he was once a re porter on the Kansas City Journal. A lone man in a covered wagon has been camping in the woods back of the Reform school since last Tuesday. The Dispatch band gives a free con cert every Sunday afternoon near the corner of Eighth and Kansas avenue. If the Sanders army had crfmped on the fair grounds what a snap it would have been for the street car company. The Sanders wealers will receive regu lar army rations while camped on the Fort Leavenworth military reservation. A day of this kind makes a man wish he was a boy again so he could run after the parade without sacrificing his dig nity. A good many Topeka people have changed their opinions of the Coxeyites materially since the Sandera army visited Topeka. The commonweal songs published in the Statk Jocbsal threaten to become popular. Nearly all the little boys are singing them. A Topeka young man took several Bnap shot pictures of the Sanders army, and will try to sell them to the Frank Leslie magazine. The sixteenth convention of the Tope ka district woman's foreign missionary society of the Methodist church will be held at Overbrook May 30 and 31. Tonight occurs the semi-annual meet ing of the Christian Endeavor society, at the Central Congregational church. There will be a business meeting fol lowed by a social. The monthly meeting of the Women's Home Missionary society will take place at Westminster Presbytery church Wednesday afternoon. Subject: "Siam" and the "Mormons." Patsy McGarrity, a Topeka composi tor, has fallen heir to half of an estate which is valued at $300,000. An aunt of McGarrity's died in Paris leaving her estate to Patsy and his sister. Whenever the high school teachers miss a boy from school, they always dis patch a messenger to the "Academy of Science," (Coughlan's billiard hall.) And the absentee is often found there. A Topeka girl recently found a pack age of her mother's old love letters, and now has a weapon to wield when her maternal parent says anything against the attentions she receives from young men. Miss Whipple, the clerk at the post ofSce general delivery window, has given Postmaster Arnold her resignation to take effect tomorrow. It is said that she will marry an estimable Kansas City young man. Miss. M. E. Iledrick in a missionary address at the Kansas Avenue M. E. church yesterday morning said: "Men will work for $1.65 a month and keep a family of five on it in Calcutta. That is what comes of free trade."

In regard to the euit tiled by the widow of Senator Plumb Major Hood said that ho would prefer io have his attorneys, Judpo C. Ii. Graves, I. E. Lambert and H. 1. Dickson, make a statement of his side of the case. He said, however, that he had been expect ing the suit, and that he would contest it to the end. lie was satisfied that the Plumb estate had no claim upon him, and when this demand was made he had so stated, but In order that a settlement might be arrived at amicably, ho had offered to arbitrate the question through George Plumb, the late aenator's brother, Charles S. Gleed, Mrs. 1 lurub'a lawyer, and I. E. Lambert, the attorney ol i luiub & Hood, an old time friend of the bena tor. This was declined. Further than this he declined to talk. Major Hood's attorneys made the fol lowing statement: Plumb and Hood were partners fo .' nearly twenty years, and during in.it time entertained the utmont personal confidence in each other, and never had any misunderstanding. Plumb had su perior opportunities for making invest ments, and had full authority to uo th ir names jointly in that way. In this way the partnership operated largely in Tex as cattle and in many interests in Colo rado and in other enterprises, and at the time of Plumb's death ttieir business wan in an unsettled, but by them well under stood, condition. Had Mr. Plumb lived everything would have been amicably and satisfactorily settled. The Plumb estate is not di jpo.-ed to adjust these matters as Ht.od thinks on a basis that is fair and just 1o him. and he will file a counter suit. rom tho beginning of the administration of this Plumb estate the-executors 1 ave refused to have anvthing whatever to do with Mr. Hood. Mr. Hood haa tried to reach a quiet and fair settlement and has been and is now willing to make any reasona ble concession to insure an ad.ustme t of the particular matters involved in the suit just filed. Major Hood ha acted upon advice of c mnrel and feels, that ho will be justified by thurosultol" tho suit. Major Hood thinks that this suit has been brought at this time on the bel .eT that he ia a poabible candidate for tlie United States senate and thi-t the pro ceeding may weaken hia chances in tha respect.
