Topeliit to Have Another Santa
i Director.
He Will Take 3Ir. Severy's Phiee
Jt is Said.
TOMORROW'S MEETING
To lie.
Followed ly a Keorani
zatioii 3Ieetilif
To Be Held in New York as Soon
u Possible.
It now seems likely that Topska is to
have all three if tho Kansas directors of
the S-tnta Fe.
The story was renewed this morning
and seemingly with some foundation that
Mr. L. Severy, of Emporia, is to be
dreppe 1 from the directory if the pres
ent directors succeed in controlling the
election.
The s-tory was telegraphed from New
York, a few days ago that Mr. Severy was
to be retired to make room for an east
ern man, but that would be out of the
question, as ths charter expressly pro
vides that lures of the directors of the
company must be residents of Kansas.
Mr. J-every's friends deny thai he is to
be left out in tha election tomorrow, but
it is known that they are quite anxious
about the matter.
They say that since he has been on
the board, seventeen years he lias spent
more of his tint J in zealous work for the
le interests o: the Santii Fa than any
other Kansas director.
Mr. tiovery may be reelected. The re
sult stems to await the actual showing
up of certain proxies tomorrow. There
tipr ear.-, however, to be no formal con
test whttever Letween Mr. Sevory and
Governor Osbon.
The Kansas rr an who is most talked of
as the trobable .accessor of Mr. Severy
is ex-Governor Thomas A. Ojborn.
A prominent Santa Fe official said this
morning: "If Mr. Severy is retired lie
should te succeeded by some man who
is largely interested in the itate, and
who represents .some of the financial in
terests of the state. Some large shipper
would be prefer i'ole."
Governor Osboru, is not a shipper, but
he has large property interests in the
tate, acd his eleciiou as a director would
be highly atisfctury to the Kansas in
terests t f the road.
There has busa some gossip to the
effect that Receiver Aldace F. Walker is
to be made a director, but "frrar rTffipTJT
tiibie as wtieu Jlr. Walker was appoint
ed'Judge Caldwell expressly stated that
ho wanted men for receivers who would
not in any way te interested in the reor
ganization ot the company. If Mr.
Walker should be made a director he
would necessarily have to participate in
the reorganization of the company.
The new board of directors to be elect
ed at tomorrow's meeting- will hold its
first meeting for organization ia New
York ecme time next week.
The directors' meeting cannot be held
hre for the simple reason that if the
old directors are victorious in this tight
there will be only hve directors of the
thirteen in Kaas is at the conclusion of
the btotkholder' meeting. These live
directors tire Col. C. K. Holliday, I..
Severy, C. S. Gleed, B. F. C heney and
J atues A. Blair.
Utiles a reorganization of the Santa
Fe is effected within the coming year,
the office of director will have about as
little importance us that of road overseer
for the reason that the directors at the
present time have nothing whatever to
do with the management or the opera
tion of the road. Judge Caldwell, a few
montha ago, made an order setting aside
f '.'O.OOO annually out of the road's earn
ings to be used in keeping uu an organi
sation of the coir pany in order that when
the road i iu a cocdi'ioa to be delivered
from the courts to its owners, there may
be some one authorized to receive it.
Since the arrival of the representatives
of the two opposing factions who are
striving to contr il the election of the
new directory, there have been several
private conferences in which the plans
ior procedure at tomorrow's meeting
were partially arranged.
The members of the protective com
mittee insist, as they did yesterday,
that they wii. have a representa
tive on the new board of di
rectors, and it is known that
they are preparing to resort to the courts
to enforce the us? of the cumulative sys
tem of voting if the present directors
present a majority of the stock and de
cliuo to accord them a representation
without a light.
Major T. J. Anderson, who was a mem
ber of the Kansas legislature ia 1311) and
was alio at that time general agent of the
Santa Fe for Kansas, Colorado and Xew
Mexico. aid today: "The original char
ter of the Santa Fo was granted iu is.,;.)
and ran for a period of twenty-one years.
It has long since expired and was nev
er renewed. 1 was in the legislature of
ISTa wtien the Santa Fe was intending
to make a fight for a new charter. They
made ail the preparations for the cou
teat but at the last moment decided to do
without the renewal and operate under
the state statutes. I have seen a great
deal in the paper about the primitive
nature of the Santa Fe charter, but as a
matter of fact it has uo charter at all."
Mr. Anderson took the reporter to J.
G. Waters' office for a substantiation of
what he said. Mr. Waters was the gen
eral attorney at that time. But Mr.
" atars was out of the city.
Master-in -Chancery J. II. Johnson savs
the Santi Fe cha-ter was granted prior
to lboO for a peri d of 21 vears, and he
has never heard t f the charter being re
newed although he has never h..d occa
sion to look tuis point up specially.
JV.II.I, MAKi rH.i:i IK.HT.
The Protective Coiiiuiirtoe Will Not Kasily
iive In.
It is no longer a question of doubt, but
ef ttbaulme certa.nty, that the Atchiscn
Protective Reorganization committee in
tends to tight its battle to a finish and
oust the present managers if they win.
Mr. Newman Erb of the committee
said on his arriral in Tjpeka th.it they
proposed to have at least a representa
tion on the board of directors if
they do not elect the entire
board, and the members of
the committee, thought their holdings
of stock being so very large they would
be recognized by the majority and given
a minority position in the new directory
without a tight.
Today it is said the protective com
mittee has given tip all hopes of
! getting a representation on the new
directory unless the cumulative system
ot voting is used, ana this atternoon it is
announced that Mr. A. I Williams, gen
eral attorney for the Union Pacific, has
been retained to assist iu bringing legal
proceedings to compel the use of the cu
mulative voting system.
The understanding ia that the supremo
court will be asksi to enjoin the stock
holders from holding an election until
they will agree to use the cumulative
system of voting.

FOR ARTISTIC COINS.
Committee for the i inprovetiieiit of tlio
lnit'fl States Coiivi-e in Session.
New York, Oct. 24. A joint commit
tee for the improvement of the I nited
States coinage m-t laet evening a the
rooms of the Am.-ricau Nuncismiitie. and
Archaeological society. Tiio committee
has for its object the periodical adaption
of artistic designs for coins of the coun
try symbollic of historical events. Dan
iel Parish of the American Numismatic
and Archaeological society presided at
the meeting iu the abseacs of Russell
Sturgis.
George F. Kunz, of the same society,
secretary, slated that he called upon Mr.
Preaton, superintendent of the miut at
Philadelphia who said that be was of the
opinion that an open competition would
secure the best result. Mr. Kunz advo
cated that the committee use its influence
to have $5,000 appropriate 1 for equal
division for the best ten awards, the suc
cessful design to be chosen from among
the ten.
The suggestions made last April by the
sub-committee were approved with some
chauges. The plan of the cjinrnittee is
to make a section of ancient and current
coins for the purpose of drawing com
parisons between them and thst troveru
ment coins and to submit the result
to a United States senator. If
the neceBsary enactments and appropria
tions are obtained a jury, t omposed of
ten sculptors, two numismatists and a
government official, is to be selected to
pass judgment upon the designs submit
ted. The competition will be open to every
artist in the world.
The committee reeommendsd that
changes in the designs be made at each
change in the administration, or every
ten years.
Jlr. Kunz believes that the cost of pro
ducing artistic designs upun the coins
would not amount to mora than $50,000
for every change.
The following societies and institu
tions are represented in the work: The
American N umismatic and Archaeological
society, the Architectural league of New
York, College of tie city of New York,
the National academy of de-sign, the Na

Paris, Oct. 24. A dispatch received

expected in a few hours. There is grow

the worse.
An imperial decree was published to-
ALEXANDER III.,

third son of the czar, the heir to the
throne in succession to his brother,
Grand Duke Nicholas, the czarewitch

a secret agreement exists between France

the two countries are to take joint action

agreement is said to have been signed

correspondent adds that preparations are
making for the operation of tne thoracen
tesis in order to relieve the effusion into the
thoratie cavity which will doubtless re
lieve the distressed breathing of the pa
tient and retard the action of his heart.
Oxygen iuiiationa, it is stated, have al

heart, sad the czar has enjoyed many

GOT. REXFKOW'S REPORT.
Tlie Growth of the Territory Has lieen
Steady anil ltapitl.
Washington, Oct. 24. Governor Ren
frew, of Oklahoma, has submitted his
annual report to the secretary of the in
terior. The general condition of the ter
ritory he sums in the following:
'Oklahoma's progress has been steady
and rapid ever since the 22nd of April,
18sy. Capital has not as yet sought in
vestment to any great extent in Oklaho
ma, but there has been a real and sub
stantial increase in wealth from the al
most unlimited natural resources of the
territory and it now furnishes one of the
best fields for capital in the United
States.
Report by county clerks to the terri
torial auditor on February 1, 1S94,
fchowed the population to be 212,535, but
Gov. Renfrew now estimates it at 250,
000. The taxable valuation of the terri
tory is $19,943,922. The assessed valua
tion of the railroad property ia $1,350,
92, the value of the Western Union Tel
egraph company's property is $52,026.
a here are hfty-six banks in the territory
six national and fifty private.
Probably the most important part of
Gov. Renfrew's report is devoted to state
hood and the admision of Oklahoma and
Indian Territory as one state. He says:
"The question of statehood for Okla
homa has been much agitated, and the
people are divided on the question. Some
desire statehood for Oklahoma, with its
j resent boundary; others prefer to have
the matter of statehood deferred until
EMPEROR OF RUSSIA.
such time as Oklahoma and the Indian
Territory may be admitted as one state.
"As separate states neither Oklahoma
nor the Indian Territory would rank
among the great western states either in
extent or wealth. Together they would
be equal to the greatest, and, in my opin
ion, tne greatest state west of the Missis
sippi. FOUND HIS JEWELRY.

Stolen Jewelry at the IoIi-e Station.
The lleringtbn man, A. Abbott, came
to Topeka yesterday and identified the
jewelry held at the police station with
the men Raymond Pope, B. F. Parker,
Charley Davis and James JSIcCanu ar
rested Sunday. The man on whom the
jewelry was found had escaped from the
Crr while the officers were searching the
other men and as nothing could bo
proved against the four men name-l, they
were released from the jail last night.
A telegram has also been received
from a Pea body dry goods merchant,
whose store was recently robbed of
a lot of cheap jewelry. The goods
being held for the Peabody man
was found on John Stark, Frank Monroe
aud John Donnellson. A gold breast
pin that was found among the articles
has been identified as part of the goods
stolen from the Seery residence on To

The German-American league met last
night and expressed their preferences in
the legislative fight in Shawnee county.
The league endorsed John Schenck,
Populist, in preference to A. C. Sherman
in the Thirty-tifth or north district; Col.
George W. Yeale, Republican, over It
J. Sloat in the Thirty-sixth or town "dis
trict; and F. A. Kiene, Populist, in pref
erence to S. M. Gardenhire.
Thus two Populists aud one Republi
can receive the endorsement of the Ger
man votes. Mr. Gardenhire was
rejected because he favored woman's
suffrage. Sloat was rejected because
he is not a taxpayer, and Sherman was
rejected because Schenck himself is a
German.
The league will meet again next Tues
day night aad endorse county officers.
Harry Safford will be endorsed for coun
ty attorney, but there will be a division
on the rest of the county ticket.

OLNEY'S SHARP REPLY

IT. S. Marshal Rede.
Rede Was Unwilling to Obey
Civil Service Rules.
HE GREW VERY ANGRY
Abused Democratic Leaders as
Mountebanks.
Attorney General Olney Makes a
Caustic Retort to It.
Washington, Oct. 24. The publica
tion in St. Paul of M r. J. Adam Bede'a
letter ami resignation as United
States marshal, is regarded at the
department of justice as a sufficient
reason for the publication of the attor
ney general's letter of acceptance. In
the course of his letter Marshal Redo
after unconditicnally tendering his res
ignation because he cannot conscien
tiously obey the president's order forbid
ding federal appointees doing campaign
worK, says:
"I do this because the party to which
I have ever given my allegiance and in
the principles of which I have an abid
ing faith is managed by knownothings
and mountebanks and charged with
evils that come from others' crimes.
"When I must choose between public
ohice and my friends, I shall take my
friends, and nothing shall stand be-
i tween mv best efforts and their best in
terests."
Mr. Bede speaks in eulogistic terms of
his friend Major Baldwin, aud concludes
as follows: '"Once more the dogs are
baying on his trail but there is a God in
Israel who takes care of his own.'"
The attorney general's letter accepting
Marshal Bede'a resignation is as follows:
"1 have yours of the KJtii instant, iu
which you tender your resignation of the
office of United States marshal.
"1 have just been obliged to call for
the resignation of a United States mar
shal who began a political campaign
with speech-making, and ended by
shooting, and is now under indictment
for murder. From the tone and temper
of your letter it would not be surprising
to find you in a like predicament should
you undertake to be a political worker
aud United States marshal at the same
time. Your resignation as marshal is ac
cepted to take effect upon the appoint
ment and qualification of your suc
cessor." LOCAL MENTION.
