Tli i'irt Christian thurch ij Assured of tli Money. The o Hirers of the First Christian church expect to be able to report iri Thursday evening at a general church meeting that all the money needed for the completion of their new church has been subscribed. Last Thursday night after only two days' solicitation almost $400 of the f 1. UOO asked for had been subscribed and unless something unforeseen happens the entire amount will be reported raided on Thursday night. An officer of the church sail today that many people who are anxious to assist with the building are uaabie to do so at this time on account of the hard times. Whether all the money is reported subscribed or not at tha meeting Thanks giving night, the roof will be put on the 1 unfinished portion of the new building this winter. The contractor has agreed to put ttu roof on and wait for his money until spring if it can uot be raided at thi3 time, but the chances are that he will not have to wait A STRANGE CASE. William H. Andenun liarged With I o li; luZ per He Coulil Havu Had fur thn A k i ii t. One of the most i.iexplicat le oa-H which has ever been before any court is that of William 1 I. Anderson which will be tried before Judge Poster, December 3. Anderson is an old soldier, and the charge against him is securing- fraudu lent evidence with which to sacure a pension. It was more than three years aj that Anderson lived at Amerit us, in I .you county. He had served his country faith fully during the war, and his health was broken as a result. One day he came to the conclusion that he would secure a I pension. 1 bere was plenty ot evidence t at hand to show that he was entitled to one. Anderson started to work up his case and first found what evidence was nec essary. Near him lived several men w ho would make the necessary affidavits, but strange to say, he did not go to se i them, tut wrote out tha affidavits which the men would have xnad, himself. Ii forged their names, it is said, and also the certificate of the notary public and sent the papers to Was hington. Anderson was at once given a pension on the strength of bis papers, wiiieh he has drawn every quarter. There was nothing contained in the affidavits which tha man would not have sworn to if An derson had called upon them, and why he should have forged the papers as alleged is a, mystery. He was indicted three years ago, but was not arrested until u few weeks ago, when he was found in Oklahoma and came here for trial. Horner. Topeka Coal Co. Titankwzi vine Concert.

Topeka Coal o. Horner. JOHN DONOVAN OF BAY. Be Js the Dntire Democratic Minority To the Conning Uliehifran legislature. The Democratic Eanority in tiie Mich igan legislature was burn in Hamilton, Cmr. , ol y?ars ao arid bears the n line of John Donovan. Dur ing the coming session lie will play a game of legislative soli- - taire, for he was the only Demo eraric member of l the legislature 7" elected when the recent Republic an cyclone swept over the country. JOHN DOXOVAX. He will hold all the party caucuses, dic- j tate the party membership of commit ' tees and cast the -entire party vote tor , United States senators when successors ! to the late Senator Stoekbridge ami Si-n-; ator James McMillan are chosen. He is all that is left of the noble Democratic : sdx hundred after the recent Michigan i Balaklava. Mr. Donovan -will crtdita ; bly represent his party, for he iss a man ! of sterling integrity and a total abstain er, although not a prohibitionist. He crossed to the United States when a small boy "and grew to manhood in Yonng-stowu, JJ. Y. , where he obtained a good education and earned a liveli hood as a teacher in the public schools. Twenty-one years ago Le married a Jamestown (N. Y. ) girl, and their only child died at the age of 8 years. In 1805 Mr. Donovan removed to Michigan, where lie taught public and parochial schools for a number of years. He then . became a builder in Bay City, did his ; work conscientiously and has become well off in this world's goods. He is a Catholic and a member of the Ancient Order of Hibernians and the Catholio Mutual Benefit association. He is a res ident of a strong A. P. A. district, but this fact did not prevent his election. During the recent campaign he con ducted a canvass that was remarkable for honesty. He refused to donate to strikers and political clubs, aud eyeu retrained from "setting up" drinks and cigars for "the boys," declaring that if he could not be elected without buying votes he did not desire to ko to Lansing. He promises to make his presence felt in the legislature even if he is a single Democrat among 131 Republicans. The Sweet Singer of Michigan or some other equally gifted poet of the Wolverene State has thus immortalized Donovan in verse: A frre n spot in the desrt, an islet in the sea, A single small greea leaflet upon a I4a&tei tree, A Crusoe minus Friday, a bright ppot in a can-, The man without a party, the boss without a slave, The chief without an army, an estate without an heir, A prisoner iii a u'.:msem at a frame of solitaire.

The equal suffrage experiment is hav ing a thorough trial in Colorado, and one of the results of the recent political battle was the election of three women to the legislature, and a fourth was cho sen superintendent of public instruction. Mrs. Anu;enette J. Peavey, the new su perintendent of public instruction, is a woman of considerable ability and force of character. She was left a widow dur ing the war and has since supported herself and her daughters by teaching school and doing newspape r work. She has been a resident of Colorado about ten years and was placed on the Repub lican ticket during the recent campaign because of her activity in organizing Republican clubs among the women vot ers. Mrs. Clara Cressingham, one cf the fair members of the lower branch of the legislature, is a daughter of a prom inent citizen of Brooklyn. Her husband was compelled to locate in Colorado on account of his health, and since she be- MSS. CLARA CREPSIXGH KM. MRS. A. .1. 1'F.AlEt. MILS. FKASCE.S KLOCK. came a resident of Denver she haa been prominent in bettering the condition of the schools in her district. During the campaign .she took to the stump and that she made a very favorable impres sion cpon the voters is evidenced by the fact that she was elected. Mrs. Frances Klock, another member of the legislature, is a native of North Lee, Mass. At the age of 15 she remov ed with her parents to Fon du Lae, Wis. Her father fell fighting for the Union at Vicksburjj:, her brother died in the (service, and her husband rose from the ranks to a captaincy, bat left the army with shattered health. The couple re moved to Colorado, where Mrs. Klock has since been prominently identified with the Woman's Relief corps of the G. A. R. She received a heavy soldier vote. Mrs. Carrie C.

The reduction in the price of all stand ard wheels from $15 and $1."0 to $100, which has been announced by the makers this month, is liable to create another big wave in favor of cycling-, the Topeka dealers think. It is believed that there will tie many accessions to the Topeka cycling- fraternity by reason of the change, and in expectation of , such an exitrency, one Topeka dealer has already contracted for 5'J standard wheels. This is not the time of year, however, when people purchase bicycles, Those disposed to invest show a tendency to wait until the ltiSfo models have made their appearance. It ia believed that there will bo but few changes in next season's model. It will be lighter, although it would seem impossible to reduce the weightof last season's wheels. The tread will also be narrower. All the leading- bicycle manufacturers in the country hold a bicycle show in Chicago the second week in January. At this show samples of wheels, improved details and wheelmen's sundries are shown for the benefit of the bicycle trade the country over. William Taylor and Otto Townseud will attend the exhibi tion. Hunt and Stevenson, the Topeka rac ers, ao not propose to lose tneir racing ability during the wdnter months. They are trahiinc: almost every day at tha To peka Athletic club's gj-mnasium. During- last summer and fall sixteen Topeka bicycles were stolen, only two of which . were recovered. The Topeka wheelmen, while possessed of no vigilance committee, are alert to a man for stolen wheels, and each bicycle store has be come a detective agency in this particular line. The officers in their efforts to re cover stolen wheels, and protect those that haven't been stolen yet have the cordial support of the Topeka wheel men. The cyclists have no local organ ization, however, the last vestige of the Topeka bicycle cluu disappearing- when the wheelmen as a body went into the Topeka Athletic association. A HE BEL FL AG.
