or;c. FRIDAY EVENING. T WO CENTS. TWO CENTS. FRIDAY EVENING. TOPEKA, KANSAS, OCTOBER 25, 1893. It TO RESIST RUSSl War in the East is Again Thought Probable. Great Powers May Combine to Oppose tier Aggression. V ENGLAND IS EXCITED. Situation Considered Serious Enough for an Ultimatum.' Several Great wUions May bo Drawn Into a War. London, Oct., 25. The despatch from Shanghai ye3terday afternoon announc ing the departure of a ueet of fifteen Hussian war ship from Vladivostok fur Chemulpo and Fusan, Corea, &nd the Times' dispatch from Hong Kong an nouncing thai Russia has obtained the right to anchor her Heat at Port Arthur aud con3truct railroads on the Lia Tuny peninsula, have caused intense excite ment in official circles here as well as in those having commercial relations with the far west. The Shanghai dispatch added that the Japanese Ueet in Formosan waters had been recalled; that several British war ships had been ordered to Corea and that preparations for a struggle were visible on ;;11 sides. ' The Hong Kong cable message to the Times caused that paper to remark edi torially today: "Russia caunot poss'ibly imagiue that the great powers will view with indifference such a destruction of the balance ot power, which is almost unparalleled in its audacity. Cliina's op tion to purchase the railways is a jest almost too cynics! to tind a place in any serious diplomatic transaction. Under the indicated conditions Manchuria would practically become a lfussian province, whiie Pekin would be within Russia's griu." It is admitted here that tho situation presented is so grave that should the news prove true it would make war in which several nations will take part more than probabie. The main papers of this city all pub lish long articles agreeing that British intervention iu the far east is necessary. The St. Jauies G.izette says: Even war with Russia vvou.d not be more disas trous than to ailow her to get such a grip upon China. She could throttie all the other powers and choke oil their commerce. Unless Russia and China give the necessary assurances, it is a cae lor an ultimatum, and perhaps the iiinsf seriou3 step our diplomacy has had since the Crimean war. The impression is general in tho offi cial world and it is re-echoed by the press, that neither America nor Germany can allow the Pacific to become a "Franco-Russian lake" as the Globe puts it and it is generally thought the diplo mats will be sufficiently strong to corn biue to resist Russian aggression. Washington, Oct. 5. The navy de partment is giving careful attention to the situation in Corea. The United States has no especial interest iu the com plication, beyond the protection of American interests and probably under no circumstati"es would do more than take precautions to this end by sending some of the ships now in Asiatic waters to the scene iu case official advices Bhould confirm the reports of prospective trouble. QUARREL OVER BAPTISM. lir. Fee Decides fur Immersion Only and His Congregation Protest. Chicago, Oct. 25. A dispatch from Richmond, Ky., says: John G. Fee, the eminent founder ol Berea college and for over forty years pastjr of the church at Berea, has ten dered his resiguatiou under rather sensa tional circumstances. The church is a union one tolerating any form cf baptism, a doctrine which Dr. Fee ha3 zealously tanght. A few weeks ago, however, he became con vinced that his teachings had boen wrong and so notified his cougregation, telling them they mu3t ba baptized ac cording to the Campbellite faith in order to be saved. The members protested against this and by a iarge majority vote decided to adhere to their original views. This pro duced a rupture between Dr. Fee and hia congregation and the doctor has re signed. FURNISHED WINCHESTERS. American Express Co. Messengers Are Given Kities and Revolvers. Grand Rapids, Mich., Oct. 25. All the messengers in the employ of the American Express company have been furnished Winchesters and revolvers to resist train robbers. Under new rules they are required, when they come in from a trip to remove the cartridges from their Winchesters and revolvers, examine the guns aud ammunition, and report the condition.

The company also advises its men to become proficient in rifle and revolver practice and hints that in the near future prizes will be awarded to the most proficient marksmen. TAGGED LIKE SLATES.

There is every prospect now that the Orphans' home trolley car which is to be run next Wednesday by "Becky Sharp" will realize a handsome sum of money to help make the payment on the home. Many friends of the home have an nounced their intention of riding upon the car, and several generous hearted geutiemeu have promised that they will be willing to pay much more than the customary nickel. ' But if the car is full all day at a nickel per passenger a mos handsome sum will bp realized. The Journal believes that a project of this kind, which costs so little to each individual, will appeal to everyone who luks a warm spot lor the little ones whose parents have beeu taken from them. Kveryouo is expected to ride in the decorated car, and thus give themselves .i pleasure to be remembered as well as contribute to the . comfort -of the little waifs at the home. Tickets will be on sale by tomorrow-af tern-ootr, both- by the 'adies of the home, and in several con venient down town ' places to ' be an nounced later. Buy as many as you can afford to and distribute them. .... It will not be necessary, however, to have a ticket in order to ride on the car, and you can pay as much as you wish for your fare.

The mandolin club will play "Hail to the Chief" on this occasion. Of course Mr. C. K. llolliday, jr., will try to be on the car at the same time. A souvenir ticket will be auctioned off to the highest bidder, in ono of the most promineut social organizations of the city. The ticket will be a larjfe. hand some one, containing a photograph of the decorated car, and appropriate inscrip tions. Governor Morrill and staff and the state house officers will also be passen gers in a body. The ladies of the board of managers of the home vtiil make another party riding at the same time. The car is intended also to carry regu lar passengers to their destination and the patronage of ail travelers between Ivorth and South Topeka is earnestly solicited. Children are invited to help the unfortunate children who have no parents, but parents or guardians are re quested to accompany all children under -twelve years of age. The children of the home will be brought down during the day and given a free ride on the car. These will be the only deadheads of the day. Hulder3 of passes so far as con sulted have kindly consented to save up their pennies to pay for a ride.

City 3Iut Put Down Urick idewitlks and Fine Everybody Who i'alls Down. After being out two hoars this morn nig iue jury n; uie damage case ot Isabella Greenway against the brought in a verdict allowing Greenway $8t)0 for her injuries. Airs. city Mrs. She sued lor $o,uoo. It was proven that she had been con fined to her bed for five months after she fell through a small foot bridge over Gunn's canal at 311 East Kious street in North Topeka, aud physicians testified that she might be permanently injured, as she is still suffering, although the ac cident occurred a year ego last Septem ber. The whole point with the jury was whether the city wa3 responsible for tho structure which partially gave away with Mrs. Greenway. The city created the canal and since it had provided no means of crossing, but allowed residents on the street to use bridges of their own construction, the jury thought it was re sponsible for them. E A. Wagener and Welch & Dawson conducted Mrs. Greenway's case, while city attorney Bird represented the city. This will doubtless give a great im petus to damage suits against the city. There seems to be no way of avoiding these suits which hava grown into a per fect swarm, except for the city to lay all sidewalks and culverts and thoroughly inspect them. It would be foolish to permit owners of property to put down their own street pavement, and our present custom of permitting them to put down their own sidewalks is fully as foolish and expensive to the city. The city shouldjtake tho right of laying side walks entirely away from property owners. Or if property owners lay the sidewalks, they should be responsible for the damages. That's logic if it isn't law. OLNEY'S STRONG WORDS. Defined the Monroe Doctrine to Great Britain Very Plainly. New York, Oct 25. A special to the Herald from Washington says: Addi tional particulars have just been ascer tained concerning the contents-of Sec retary Olney's note to Great Britian on the Venezuelan matter. It describes the history ot the Monroe doctrine, points out the applicability of this doctrine to the boundary dispute in Guiana, and then declares the priuciple, namely, that no European power shall enlaree its territorial dominion on the American continent by means of force. Arbitration, he says the United States is now, as formerly, 'willing to promots and facilitate. But he is as emphatic as language permits in the declaration that any attempt to reach a settlement of the contention by means of force would be regarded as an ac( uufriendly to the United Statei Auction sale of chairs tomorrow at 1:30 in Topeka and 8:80 North Topeka.

Calls Tom Piatt the Judas of Republican Party. FOSTER ALSO FLAYED. Piatt is Dangerous to Any Civ il iz id Organization. Senator Sherman Disavows the Interview it is Said. New York, Oct. 25. The Herald pub lished a remarkable interview with Senator Sherman, in which ex-Senator Thomas C. Piatt and Charles Foster of Ohio were flayed alive, so to speak. , The interview- purported to have taken place at Senator Sherman's home in Mansfield, Ohio. In the course of a talk on the effect his book would probably have on politics. Senator Sherman was quoted as follows: "The republicans usually do sensible things. Toe party has erred iu the past; it may do so again. But, mark you, it will never listen to tne voice of Tom Piatt in the council chambers again. Piatt is the Judas Iscariot of the repub lican party. lie is dangerous to any civilized organization." Senator Sherman went on to say ac cording to tho Herald, that Piatt had sold him (Sherman) out in the national Republican convention of 1888, and that the price of his treachery was the prom ise of a cabinet portfolio made by Benjamin Harrison. Charles Foster received similar treatment in the interview. Senator Sherman de nounced him in unmeasured terms. The senator said if he were a younger man he would again seek the presidency, "It is an office," the interview continu ed, "I have longed to fill. To be the chief magistrate of this republic has been my dream and hope for almost a quarter of a century." This alleged interview created great excitement in political circles here. Friends of Sonator Sherman, doubting its accuracy, telegraphed to Cincinnati for a verification or denial. In response came the reply that Senator Sherman had disavowed the interview. Ex -Senator Piatt read the Herald story, but he would not discuss it. He said he would make no reply to it at least not at present. ENGLAND AND SPAIN DEAL. Spuin Surrenders an Itltind to England Who Will Stop Filibuster. Minneapolis, Oct 25. The member of the Cuban junta now in the northwest today declared that there was a secret compact between Spaiu and England which accounted for the seizures ot filibustering expeditions in the Bahama islands by which Spain is to turn over the Isle de Pinos at the southwestern end of Cuba to England in return for England's prom ises to prevent the fitting out of expedi tions from her West Indian dependen cies. The Island de Pinos would give England an immensely valuaole naval station commanding the oulv channel to the Nicaruguan canal not now controlled bv England. He also asserts that Cuba will have a modern navy of five vessels under com mand of Admiral de Mello, tne Brazilian sailor. Two ships are to come from Brazil and one from Chiii. He admits that an effort is soon to be made to float an issue of $20,000,000 in Cuban bonds. FILIBUSTERS CAUGHT. Those Acquitted in Delaware Captured in tho ltahama Islands. Washington, Oct 24. It has been due to the activity of Minister Dupuy de Lome, the Spanish representative in Washington, that the large band of Cu bans, charged in Delaware with being filibustered, have been apprehended in one of the Bahama islands. Brief word of the capture has already been received neretoiore ana has now been confirmed by official advices. Since the acquittal at Wilmington, Del,, of the Cubans charged with being tilibus- terers the minister has not lost track of the men. He received constant reports of their movements, but took no step toward their apprehension until they reached one of the Bahama islands and were under the jurisdiction of the British authority. The capture was effected without diffi culty and the prisoners taken to Nassau, where they will be tried by the British The impression among officials here is that the supects will be deait with by the British authorities in a summary way.

Sloan of West Superior, a leading man in that part of the state and the representative of Douglas coun ty in the last legislature de- clared that the people of that county desired the formation of a new state from portions " of Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin. This, he said. they considered a better plan than the annexation of Douglas county, Wis., to Minnesota. . 'I don't know of a man in Superior," said Mr. Sloan, "who wants to have the citv annexed to Minnesota, and I don't suppose Duluth wants to make an uncon ditional surrender to superior. lue Michigan peninsula is entirely separate from the rest of the state and has small voice in its affairs. Geographic ally, commercially it belongs with north ern Wisconsin, and, with the portions of Minnesota and Michigan with which it would be consolidated, would form a rich and well populated state. "We at Superior are aoout ouu miies from the capital and the adjoining terri tory in Minnesota is similarly situated. There is ample territory f or a new state, without doing any harm to the throe from which the territory would be taken." A VICKSRURG PARK.

Washington People Are Becom ing Enthused Over the Project. Is Suggested That State Exhibits be Made Permanent. Washington, Oct. 25. The suggestion that a great exposition marking the close of the present century be held in Wa sh- ington, in the summer of 1900, is meet- f with much favor at the capital, Besides commemorating the close of a century such an exposition would mark the centennial anniversary of the found" iug of the seat of government in the Dis" trict of Columbia. In June, 1800, the public offices were transferred to Washington. On Novem ber 22, 1800, John Adams in his speech at the opening of congress said: "I con gratulate the people of the United States on the assembling of congress at the permanent seat of their government and congratulate you gentlemen on the prospect of a residence not to be changed. "l ou will consider it as the capital of a great nation, advancing with unex ampled rapidity in art, in commerce, in wealth, and in population, and possess ing within itself resouroes which, if not thrown away or lamentably misdirected, will secure to it a long course of pros perity, and self government." Ihe house of representatives, in answer to the above, resolved: "The final establishment of the seat of national government, which ha3 now taken place, is an event of no small importance in political transaction3 of the country. A consideration of these powers which have been vested in Congress over the District of Columbia will not escape our attention, nor will we forget that in exercising these power?, a regard must be had to those events which will neces sarily attend the capital of America." A citizen of ashiugton suggests to the board of trade that it would bo most fitting, as this is the caoital city, that each state composing the union should nave a permanent exhibition located here, showing its resources as to agri culture, commerce, manufacturing, trans portation, mining, etc. Added to tho national government ex hibit and the individual state exhibits, there should be exhibits of the nations of North, Central and South America.

Dumas, the elder, had a dog as hos. pitable as his master, and the dog once invited twelve others to Monte Cristo, Dumas' palace, named after his fam-' ous novel. Dumas' factotum in chief wished to drive off the whole pack. "Michael," said the great romancer, I have a social position to sustain. It entails a fixed amount of trouble and expense. You say that I have thirteen dogs and that they are eating me out of house and home. Thirteen! What an unlucky number!" "Monsieur if you will permit there is but one thing left to do. I "must drive them all away." '"Never, Michael!" replied Dumas. "Never! Go at once and find me a four teenth dog!" Just in Time.

It is only a short time sines Wolff got out of the penitentiary, and today war rants were issued for his arrest in Jus tice Furry's court charging him with grand larceny and obtaining goods under false pretenses.

"A man came to me yesterday and said that Frank Lewis was going to send me to the penitentiary again if I don't get my wife to sign over all her property, but I won't do it.
