SIXTH THIS IS AX OUTRAGE. Wellknown Karnes of Kansas Towns Being Changed BY THE FOSTOFFICE DEPARTMENT Vithont Consulting tlie I n habit auts F.I Kornrt'i Made One Word aad Clsalti Mound Chansed to ( haiU. Sccis one in the general postoiSce de partment is ruining some of the best, old historical nnies of towns in Kansas. Names given them by the inhabitants which seem to them suitable are taken away by this idiot in the postoffice de partment without even consulting the people who IHe there and meaningless monosyllables substituted. Soveral of the towns which are made tip of two nf.mea will hereafter have but one. as under the direction of the postal authorities tie two words are united. The one whose change will create the greatest f uroro is El Dorado. This name is indicative of a land of milk and honey and the goal of happiness and its resi dents are prjud of the name; but Post master General Bissell's ruthless hand has shorn it of all its poetic significance and it must hereafter be written El dorsvla Clay Center and Fort Scott are not mo lested, but the next issue of the Postal Guide may announce their change. Pitts burgh, in Crawford county, loses its final "h." The sime change is made in Wil liamsburgh. Morrow station, in Wash ington county.is changed to Morrowviile. Chalk Mound, Wabaunsee county, loses the second name and becomes simDlv Chalk. 3 The historical name of Doniphan is changed to Orr. Pretty soon Atchison will be changed to Glick. The names which are united are: Big Springs, to Bigsprings; Clear Water, Sedgwick county, to Clearwater; Glen Grouse, Cowley county, to Glengrouse; Good Inter t, Atchison" county, to Good intent; La Fontaine, Wilson county, to Lafontaine; Maple Hill. Wabaunsee county, to Maplehill; Oak liill, Clav county, to OakhUl. Assistant Postmaster Wolfe, of the To pek office, eays he understands that the changes were made for the convenience of the deptrtment It is doubtful if this new order will really work the change desired. People will not rsadily take to writing two words in one, even if it is the wish of the postal authorities, and letters will be ad dressed to ' Maple Hill" and "El Dorado" just as thjy were before the changes were made. The origins of many of the names of Kansas towns are traced to some pretty tradition, and it remains to be seen whither all this can be destroyed by a strok of the pea of some foolish government official. DEATH OF I. V. DAK Ell, Ilrother of F. P. and liidrnn Haker lasse Away at Cointtot'ks, ew York. Gideon D. and F. P. Baker received a telegram last night announcing the death of their only other brother, I. V. Baker, 5at his home in Com?tocks, New iork. Lnlike his brothers, 1. . Baker was not engaged in the nawspaper or printing business. He has been engaged in rail road traffic business almost ever since there have been railroads, and his last official position, which he resigned ou account of old age, was the management of all the railroad interests of the Dela ware & Hudson Canal Co., which leases many lines iu New York and other states, and Canada. Mr. Baker was 81 years of age, and the oldest of the living brothers. His sad death leaves only three of the eleven "Baker children," F. P. Baker, aged 74; Gideon Baker, aged 62, and Mrs. George Millard, of Burling ton, Iowa, aged 07. F P. Baker intended to go east and visit his brother October 1st, in company with Mrs. C. C. Baker. As the funeral will be hsld Sunday after noon they would not be able to reach Comstocks in time to attend the funeral, bo they will probably not go. PLENTY OF WATER NOW. The Deaf and Xkumb Institution "Will Hereafter Hare Pure Water. N. Ilinshaw and M. A. Householder, the committer appointed from the state board of charities to supervise the new water plant at the Olathe institution are in the city. Mr. Ilinshaw said that the water supply .ques tion has at last; beec"solveL A well thirty feet deep and thirty feet in diame ter has been dug and hereafter the water will be taken from the well for the use of the deaf and dnmb institution. The supply has teen secured from a pond and Mr. Ilinshaw says it has for thirteen years been of the consistency of molasses. A movement was made at one time to take the institution away from Olathe because of the insufEcient supply of water and the city constructed the pond which has ierved the institution since that time. NO MOKE HEADERS. An Enterprise Company Eestraiued From Manufacturing Thcio. Judge Foster has graatd a temporary injunction against the J. B. E.irsam Ma chine company, of Enterprise, of which C. B.- HoSman is president, to prevent them from manufacturing wheat head ers.

It takes ten workmen and twenty sight-seers to raise a telephone pole into position. The bicycle girls will soon be donning their leggings. This will be a godsend to the turn ones. The Young Men's Christian associa tion has moved into its new quarters, on East Eighth street. Battery B went to Lawrence this morn ing to participate in the sham battle at the Bismarck fair. As the man said, who got off an elec tric car on the wrong side, "Tell them I'm a 'coming to.' " The women are now wearing shoes two inches longer than their feet. This explanation is timely. A literary society has been organized at 420 Jellerson street, which will meet every Wednesday evening. F. B. Dawes' voice gave way a few days ago and he could not make his speech as advertised at Ottawa. Several Topeka sports who lost money at the races here are attending the Bis marck races to retrieve their fortune. The Atchison Globe says: "Don't go crazy till after November. The insane asylums will be better managed then." City Attorney Ilungate was a little nervous today in court. He is going to Lawrence to help kill rebels this evening.

A resolution may be offered at the next meeting of the city council ordering the committee on public buildings to make a report on the necessity of a new city hall. George Sharitt, clerk of the United States circuit court, detests the title of "Hon.," and the man who uses it in ad dressing him has to keep out of Mr. Sharitt's way. Frank J. Merrick who writes the passes issued from the oOice of General .Manager J. J. Frey, will retire from his preseet position October 1. His place will be tilled by Henry Lauek. A good many Topeka people are pre paring to attend the Priests of Pallas parade at Kansas City Tuesday evening. They will hustle back home in time to get breakfast and hear McKinley. The Topeka letter carriers have not yet got their back pay for over time which they have been looking for, for several months. Their claims are being looked after by the attorney of the letter carriers' association in Washington. Mose Matthews the lawyer, is now at Decatur, Alabama. He was arrested about a year ago on the charge of forg ing the name of a federal judge to a court order, but when his case came to trial he was discharged. 8. B. Isenhart saw him in Decatur about three weeks ago. A disorderly house has been estab lished on Tenth street close to a row of the finest residences in the city. The neighbors are left to enjoy it the best they may, for Hank Lindsey's police force never disturbs auchan establishment as this, and the governor wouldn't com plain if he had one right under his nose.

Charles Williams is in Justice Grover's court charged with stealing a horse from Finch's livery barn in North To peka. The fact appears to be that Wil liams rented the horse and turned it over to another man to return, but the third party was tardy in following in structions. General Artz after working on the case finally got Judge Hazen's signature to a writ of habeas corpus by means of which Williams was shortly aftewards released from the county jaiL Fixins the Sixth Street Bridre.

Holliday, Jr., is a state uni versity law student.

Mr. Holliday goes down to Lawrence every morning, listens to the lectures iu the university law schools ami returns to Topeka in the afternoon.
