QUEEN 13 9a3 E FDUND:ADEAD MAN. A Clothed, but Decomposed Corpse Found Near Atchison. It Was Probably the Body of a Suicide. OTHER STATE NEWS. Malignant Form of Diphtheria Prevails at Osawatomie.

Yterday after noon a youug man named Kienhull found the remains of a man in the wil lows near Geary C.tv, which is not far above Doniphan lake. The" flesh was almost all gone, but the bonea were all lying- in their proper position. The clothes were all there, enveloping the skeleton, which was apparently that of a man 5 feet 8 or 9 inches in height, and from the size of the clothing had weighed from 150 to 16D pounds. Diupmg down into the s .uirl beneath the skuli, a quantity of hair was fuur.d of sandy color, with no gray hairs among it. The skull was well formed, and the bones showed no signs of violence. But one shoe was found, which waa of tine quality, patent leather, 2vo. 7, with the heel inucii worn, as if the wearer had done much walking on lht pavements of a city. The suit was almost new, the shirt white, with turn down collar, and silk tie. The deceased had probably committed suicide by jumping into the river some weeks previous. The remains were burled by the cor oner of Doniphau county, and portions of the clotning wero placed in the box witu them, in order to serve as marks of iden tification in case inquiries should be made.

Thursday there were six deaths. It is thought that infection came from Sedalia, Mo. W. r3. Jones, who has just returned from Osawatomie, however, discredits the report of the number of deaths yes terday he was informed that there had been but that many in all. lie states that Dr. Johnson, of state medical board, informed him that tlu epidemic was not diphtheria, but an ag gravated form of tonsilitis.

A Stolen Money Order Filled Oat and Sent lint Not Culled For. Troy, Oct. 19. The Troy postoffice has recently come near being the victim of a swindle?. Some time in September a money order advice for $ 100 came to the office in favor of Thomas Gray, and at the same time a letter addressed to Thus. Gray. But the letter lay in the office for several weeks uncalled for. The ad vice was endorsad on the back, "Waive identification." The order was signed with the name of the postmaster at Bell, Iowa, and bore the proper office stamp. A few days ago the postmaster received notice from the postoffice at Bell, la. that certain orders had been stolen from his book, from a certain number to an other number, inclusive. The thief had no doubt taken occasion to use the office stamp at the time he stole the blank or der, WON'T SELL FT. DODGE RESERVATION Concrcii Will be Giy.it Chance to Give It to Soldiers' Home. Dodge City, Oct. 19. The commis sioner of the general land office has de cided that he will not dispose of the Fort Dodge military reservation near here, owing to the fact that the people of that locality have asked through Representa tive Long that congress be given a chance to donate to the state soldiers' home, lo cated on part of the reservation, about 1,830 acres more land.

Turkish Newspapers Deny That Armen ians Will Get Special Privileges. Constantinople. Oct. 19. At a meet ing of the ambassadors of the powers which has just been held, it was decided to send a collective communication to the Armenian patriarch in order to solicit his assistance in the efforts being made by the representatives of the for oign governments interested to put a stop to the agitation going on among the Armenians.

BIG WHEELING ETO Topeka to Have Two National Circuit Meetings. Local Circuit Chasers for the Coming Season. OTHER SPORTING NEWS World's Records Broken at Lexington and 'Frisco. Where the Big Football Teams Are Playing. Topeka syill be lively next season from a bicycle point- of view. We will have two national circuit meets and at least seven local pedal pushers will chase the Kansas circuit. The Kansas circuit of races ia boing worked up now. Topeka will have a day about the first of September and anoth er a mouth later. Both will be national circuit meets and will bring some speedy racers to the town. Seven Topeka boys are looking for ward to a vacation of a month next sum mer when they will go the rounds of the race meets. Capt. J. B. Doucyson of the T. A. A. W. and A. E. Taylor will make one learn. They will do tandem aud in dividual racing and are considered a plucky pair. Morris Stevenson, or "Steve" aa he is called, and Fred Driesback will proba bly strive for glory together. They are contemplating racing as a tandem team, besides contesting by themselves. The others who will compose the party are Webb Stevenson, a brother of Morris, George Bartel and C. C. Claudy. These gentlemen expect to be out a month, taking in all the sanctioned meets in K:mjas. The circuit will begin with the stiite meet at Salina probably about the middle of August. They will all have brand new racing wheels, in cluding tandems of the '96 model as soon as spring time comes again. Mr. Doncyson said today in speaking of the several matters,- "Yes, Taylor aud I are going to race together. I furnish the experience and he supplies the speed. Our Topeka meets next year ought to be all right. Of course, beiug national cir cuit meets, thero will be class B events, and that means fasier racing. "But I doubt very much whether there will be any class B next year. It will probably be professional and amateur. The Ji men will bo professionals, as they really have been all the time. They sell their prizes, of course they sell them. The way they work it is: a man wins a diamond, for instance; he lets his trainer take it; his trainer has a friend who lets him have $40 on it for awhile; he gives this to the racer and forgets to redeem the jewel. Didn't sell it, of course not. "If there is a class B next year there will probably be some regular profes sional races too, at the Topeka meets. Perhaps the people would like to see them race."

W. meet at Denver was the one mile class B invita tion, in which Bald. Murphy, Cooper and other eastern cracks competed, it was an nounced that an effort would be made to lower Bald's one mile competition record of 1:08 1-5. The Denver quad team. Stone, Swan brougl), Dickson and Conibear were put in to p;ice the riders. At tha jump for the quad. Murphy succeeded 'in reaching tue position first, followed by Bdid, Cooper and the rest. The pace irom the start was a terrific one. and at the half mile all but two of the leaders were practically out of the raca. Murphy held his position behind the quad until they quit in the last eighth. Bald then moved up beside hint, and in this way they came down the last 150 yards, Baid being unable to gain an advantage, fkiixhiug wiih .Murphy in a dead heat, in l:oo 13, reducing the record by three seconds. DEMPSEY AT ATCHISON. The Ex-CHimpion Mi.idlowelgUt a Physi cal Wreck. Atchison, Oct 19. Jack Dempsey, the ex-great nonpariel and former cham pion middleweight pugilist of the world, was in the town several hours last night, but very few people recognized him. A few years ago he was one of the finest specimens of physical manhood living, but today he is broken down aud nothing like the Jack Dempsey of old. On January 14, 1891, he lost his chain- pionship of the world to Bob Fitzsim mons, and since that memorable occasion he tias been going down hill and cow ia suffering with consumption. Regarding the Corbett-Fitzsimmona mill, he expressed the opinion that Cor bett'a weight would out-last Fitz and make him a winner,, but he thinks the tight will be one of the hardest and most evenly contested ever hold. He says if Fitz does prove the winner the battle will be a short and terrific one. In his fiht with Fitz, Dempsey was badly beaten, while he failed to land a single hard blow on his opponent. CYCLE NOTES. items of X.ocaI Interest to tlie Wheelmen in Topeka. The T. A. A. wheelmen have sent an invitation to the Lawrence and Kansas City cyclers to enjoy their hospitality in Topeka on Sunday, October 2a The guests will be fed at the Copeland hotel and shown over the city by the T. A. A. wheelmen. : , The teachers at Bethany college are learning to ride, and will act as chaper ons to the young ladies. C. F. Edwards and G. O. Snider, of Topeka, Kas. . came into Denver last Monday the former on his wheel and the latter by train. Mr. Snidor brdke down near Agate, Colo., which accounted for his taking the train route. They are both on their way to San Francisco, and expect to tour all the way awheel. They will undoubtedly go west by way of Leadville and Grand Junction. When seen on Monday evening Mr. Edwards was as brown as an Indian, and informed us that he rode the 635 miles from To peka to Denver in seven aud one half davs. Cycling West. Topeka has over 1,000 wheelmen and only one club of sixty -five members. Wamego has the largest women's cy cliug club of any town in the state. THE HALLOWEEN CARNIVAL. It Promises to Re a Great Success- -Visl- tors Invited. All the bicycle clul3 in Kansas and those of St. Joe and Kansas City, Ma, will be invited to attend the Halloween bicycle carnival at Topeka. This was one of the conclusions of the T. A. A. W. meeting held at the club rooms last evening and Secretary H. G. Lescher will send out invitations at once. A silk banner will be given the club making the most creditable representa tion. The T. A. A. W.- are barred from competing for this banner. The committee on arrangements and prizes are W. W. Webb, J. B. Boncyson and II. D. Crosby. The same gentlemen will also secure" prices on uniforms, the club having decided to adopt a standard uniform for the coming year. The efforts of the T. A. A. W. to make the carnival a success will undoubtedly be seconded by the wheelmen of the city. It was also decided to-postpone all action relative to the building of a track uutil the early spring. A HALLOWEEN PARADE. The Dicyclists Will Give one With Gro tesque Featnres. The T. A. A. W. have taken the first steps towards a bicycle carnival on Hal loween by appointing J. B. Doncyson to loi'k after the preliminary work. While the programme has not yet been fully completed it is settled that several prizes will be given. The person who makes the most gro tesque appearance and the one present ing the finest appearance will each be given a handsome prize. There will be six prizes given in all. Three for ladies and three for gentlemen. The Journal would suggest that as it is likely several thousand people will come to town to see the bicyclists pa rade, that the narads be coaducicd dif- ferentlv from the last one. The uaseant passes so qu.ckly that there is a sense of disappointment to the spectators. Let the parade pass up and down Kansas avenue several times before it starts off on its longer line of march. '1 his will give nvire enjoyment to those who wish to see it. TO AHOLIsH LEAGUE RACES. Amateur Athletic Union May Control Wheeling; Contests. Chief Consul Potter of the L. A. W. will explode a bomb at the coming na tional convention of the league in the form of a mutiou and an argument for the abolition of racing under the sanction of the league. Mr. Potter's argument is that the control of cycle raciug should be in the hands of some other body than the league, because nine-tenths of the league members care practically noth ing for racing. No one joins on account of the racing. It is for the advantage in ihe way of special hotel rates, the good roads movements, free maps, guide books, etc, that the league exists and it is only because of these that it is able to exist. He recommends the Amateur Athletic union as the proper body to control bicy cle racing. TWO RECORDS BROKEN, Fast Time Made at Lexington and 'Ftisco. At San Francisco Thursday Mamie Scott, a California bred horse, broke the world's record lor seven and a hall fur longs, doing the distance in 1 :33J. The best previous coast record was 1:34 and the world's recjrd was 1:34, made by Libertine in St. Louis last August. On the same day, at Lexington, Tom my Britton, owned by McFerran Clancy, of Crescent Hill, Ky., clipped a quarter of a second off of tne the 2-year-old race record of 2:15V held jointly by Silicon and Impetuous. l-'ootb.itl sit Wellington.

Reorganization Committee Disre garded That, Bat the Government Didn't. New York, Oct 19. A special to the World from Washington says: The report of the government direc tors of the Union Pacific has been in the hands of tl-.e secretary of the interior for the past three days, ana it is understood it will be made public today. Its recom mendations will act as a cold bath to the plan of reorganization proposed by the reorganization committee. The plan was to have been constituted practically without regard to the govern ment debt while the report of the gov ernment directors proposes a plan where by the government may be reasonably sure of payment of a large percentage, if not all of the debt due it by not only the Union Pacific but by the Central Pacific The basic proposition on which the report is made, is the consolidation of the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroads into a single trunk line extend ing from Omaha to San Jose, Cal , thus connecting the Pacific coast with one of the railway centers of the trans-Mississippi by the shortest line in existence and with - ample terminal facilities at each end. It is pointed out that under the pro posed consolidation the interest of the eastern trunk lines centering at Omaha will be at once gained and it is suggested that if an open proposition were made by the government to lease or sell the combined system to thut trunk line or combination of capitalists which woutd pay to the government the largest amount on the combined indebtedness of the two road j above a minimum fixed at, it is suggest ed, $75,000,000, there would be strong competition to secure control. This plan, as outlined by the govern ment directors, has been pronounced feasible by high officials ot the Union Pacific. A bill has already been drawn by one of the government directors to carry out the object sought, and will be submitted to the secretary of the interior, the sec retary of the treasury and attorney gen eral for approval. If favored by them, it will be introduced early in the coming session of congress. Tlie Joe l.ellr.m Cnsc. F. G.

Furaishod by Topeka Grain and Stoclc Ex cllanire. 3G ivansas Avenue, Wheat Tha crowd evidently went home short last night, and on coming down this morning found a continuation of dry weather and some war newa The curb got. to 61 cents, but at the opening the scare had worn off, and prices eased off during the entire session. Cables were steady and in some case3 higher. Exports very light, less than 150,000 wheat and flour, and for the week are re ported to be only f ,41,9,000 bu. which is the smallest on :ecord for several years. There was absolutely nothing doing and the market sagged off slightly of its own weight. The following article from the Cincinnati price Current of this week gives the exact conditions of the present situation, which can only be construed as very favorable to higher prices. It says: "The extent of rainfall during the past week in the agricultural regions of the west has been quite limited, and but little relief has been experienced in the drouth regions, so that conditions in a general way are without much change. So far as crops are con cerned the direct interest centers most in the effects upon the Autumn sown wheat. It has been reported 'from week to week, from many localities, that seed ing was retarded, and awaiting rains, with intimations that the area already seeded wus short of last year to a more or less extent The continued lack-of rains, and the near approach to the time when freezing weather may be expected, with the unsatisfactory growth made by much of the early sow ings, combine to encourage apprehension that the new crop is to have an unprom ising start. While it may be admitted that possibilities still allow a good out come, the situation now confronting tha crop is one of positive doubt, and of les sening chances for satisfactory results." Corn and oats opened firm at yester day's closing figures, but soon began to ease off for lack of outside support and partly in-sytnpathy with the dull wheat market. Com is heavily oversold and and the situation warrants a much hih er level In speaking of corn the Price Current says: "Corn transactions are on a very low basic?, and a large proportion of the producers are not offering the grain freely at cur rent values. The same remark applies to oats as to wheat, there are some indica tions of a more urgent call from interior milling interest?, in a way calculated to encourage expectations of higher prices, and to some extent there has been an im provement tendency ie prices, and in tha aggregate some increase in the volume of marketings." Provisions Dull and featureless, small trade and a narrow, sagging market. The Price Current says of hogs: "A large number of hogs has been marketed the past week. Western packers have handled a total of 310,000, compared with 275,i!00 the precaeding week and 235,000 for the corresponding time last year. From March 1st the total is 7,440,000, ccmpared with 8.115. 00U a year ago, a decrease of 675,000. Prices have . been further re duced, and at the close the avet'atre fur prominent markets is about 15c per 100 pouuds lower than a week ago." Chicago Market Gossip.

New York, Oct. 19. Wall street news was highly bullish yesterday and today. Foreign exchange declined materially, arerting the dauger of iniuitdia.e g!d shipments. Cotton speculation received a severe set back, encouraging the hope that the outward morement of this would again begin. The Union i ache reor ganization plan was made pub.ic. creating the laea mat me 4a:i. ers back of it must favor a cheerful view of th9 outlook. The southern railroads, it was an nounced, have formed a new association for maintaining rates. The collapse of the Kansas Pacific bondholders' opposi tion to the present interest in Union Pa cific was noticed.

They are able to enjoy occasional up ward 6Durls owing to the act that short interest accumulates frequently in the group.
