Baker with a story or two that everybody was in a mood to enjoy. None of them were stories that caused even City Clerk McFadden to blush and even Mr. Bolivar Bradford laughed at them. Mr. Burgess stood around with his hands behind his back and chuckled, and it is to be regretted that plump Mr. Fulton was not there to enjoy the fun. At the suggestion of City Attorney Bird the procession of distinguished vis itors from Topeka then moved on to CoL Anthony at the Times office and the colonel moved them down to the Nation al again where they all took cider with the exception of Mr. Bradford, who took water and saved his country. Leavenworth treated her guests kindly and showed them everything of interest including Tony Madusky, chief of po lice, and the Missouri river. Mr, Madu3 ky'a horae. Mike, was also adm red by many Topeka people. Mike is a most wonderful animal, who eats apples, drinks beer and smokes cigarettes. It is believed he was raised in Atchison. Mike started out to eat up the apple display on the police station, but he struck a sour apple and quit with a disgusted look on his face. At Atchison at the corn carnival there was a sign on an arch over the street leadini up town from the depot which read: "If you don't see what you want ask for it." It was unnecessary to ask for anything in Leavenworth. You could see it or at least detect it. The drinking places were crowdod, but with the exception of the time CoL Anthony almost demoralized the day by taking the Topeka council into the National bar-room, it is believed no Topeka peo ple entered them. Topeka people were of course greatly shocked, but they were too well bred to show it, particularly Mr. Bradford. There wa3 a little "speaking" at the court house in the afternoon, and Con gressman Blue, Governor Morrril and others told what a great state Kausus was and what a great city Leavenworth was, and everybody was happy. Mayor Fellows did not forget Topeka, and gave her carnival of next year a send off. He said: "Keep your eye on Topeka, and watch and wait for her. We want every one of you here today, to ba with us one year from now whan we will do our celebrat ing. You have apples and apple jack, Atchison had corn and cornmeal, but Topeka will have both and more, and when you come make yourself at home." It is safe to predict that there will be lots of Leavenworth people here on the strength of this. The trades display came off in the afternoon at three o'clock and was con siderably over a mile in length and nearly an hour in passing a given point. The displays were very good The school children were largely in evidence and almost every school in town had a float. There were over a hundred floats of which the town was one, being largely afloat. If there was any reserve or bashful ness on the part of either the ctlizens or visitors in the afternoon some one had lost it or stolen it by evening. That was the time set for red lights and red paint and there was a great deal of them both. The man who waited for an introduction before speaking, is still speechless. It wasn't that S'jrt of a time. It should be said, however, to the credit of Loavenworth that there was very little throwing of ap ples as there was of corn at Atchison. If there had been as much, a good many people would have been badly hurt. It was a very good na'.ured day and there were no accidents of any moment. The noise and tho fun lasted till along into the morning and it is believed a few people are celebrating even yet. Most of the Topeka people came home last night, leaving Leavenworth at 8 o'clock, and it is a matter of congratula tion that our city council behaved itself admirably. Now let tho Leavenworth people come over to Topeka next year. QUEEN SEMI-INSANE. Quaen Victoria Dolus; All Sorts of Crazy Thin-rs. New York, Oct. 29. Harold Freder ic cables to the New York Times: There seems to be no doubt that Queen Victoria is passing again through one of those phases of semi-insanity which re call that she is George Ill's grand daughter. Theso is the 'o'a were rather frequent; of late years they have recurred less often, but for six weeks now the worst of the series has been giving everybody about Balmoral much anxiety and ceaseless trouble. Rumors began to cir culate in London a week ago that things were wrong and a modified iorm of them has been printed in Dubl n, but nowhere else, although private iei.crs from Scot land show that it ia common knowledge there. It seems to have had its origin in the death of a young nephew of John Brown who had some obscure post about Bal moral, but for whom the Queen burnt forth in a vehement mourning which took all by surprise. Since then she has been going to bis grave and to Brown's in all weather and doing other extraordinary things of a crazy charac ter which it is impossible any longer to ignore. Tho matter has hardly yet become gen erally known in England and perhaps it will pass oft again without public men tion aa in former years. WAR ON BUCKET SHOPS. Big Gamblers Don't Want Little Gamblers to Do Business. CnrCAGO, Oct. 29 The Chicago board of trade has again declared war on the bucket shops, and it is said that at a meeting of the board of directors to be held this afternoon, four members will be placed on trial who are charged with having connection with bucket shops and with aiding in conducting them.

The family of movers which stole the hog which was confined in the court house baa settled in Parkdale. EL M. Coursey is the man'a name. PREPAREFOR WAR. Senator Chandler Says Conflict With England is Certain. Will be by United States With Kussia as an Ally. CAN'T COME TOO SOON. Bloody Avarice of England Must be Restrained. Let England Begin and Will be W7iped Out She Concord, N. H., Oct 29. Over his own signature, and under the caption "Our Coming War With England A Predic tion," Senator Chandler gave out the fol lowing statement last night: "War between the United States and England is inevitable. It will arise on account of British disregard of our direct interests. It will also be forced by British encroachments upon other na tions all over the world. "It will be fought by the United States having Russia as a Europeau ally. As a war offensive on our part it may not happen within twenty years; as a defensive war it may come sooner and should be welcomed. A sure result would be the capture and perma nent acquisition of Canada by the United States. "England proposes to seize from the United States a portion of Alaska. She is destroying independent governments in all parts of the globe. Sho treats American sentiment and remonstrance with insolence and defiance. For the vindication of the Monroe doctrine in the Western Hemisphere and the protection of those independent governments in the Eastern Hemisphere and the islands of the ocean, it is necessary that the United States should prepare for war with Eng land. "It had better come now and be over than twenty years from now. We ought to define our position, and say that if not assented to, we shall fight to maintain it. "It will take some time to prepare for an offensive war, but a defensive war can come none too soon. Let England begin. Russia will be our sure ally. She is the great absolute monarchy, and the United States the great republic of the world The former needs and is entitled to a sea port in a warm region, of which England persistently deprives her but she wants no more territory. "The United States wants only the Sandwich Islands, and a foothold in the West Indies. Together they cau defy the world. They must and will restrain the brutality and bloody avarice of Great Britain. Let this be understood at once and let England strike the first blow if she chooses. A million of men and muskets will overrun Canada, and Eng land's commercial ships will be swept from the ocean. Let England begiu. We ought, to begin if it is necessary to save the Venezuela at the mouth of the Orinoco." UEDDEX REDDEN. Mrs. Emma T. Redden Wedded to Judjre Redden of El Dorado. Judge A. L.

Wheat There waa possibly more ac tivity in the market today, but values did not suit the holder by any meana-,, The drouth was still in evidence at the open ing and possibly caused the initial firm ness, December opening better than the close yesterday. This was the toD for the day thereafter slowly sagging and finally December touched 59,5g. I he slump waa caused by heavy liquida tion by Dec. longa aud ultimately but not until the magical 60 mark which it has been unable to break for the last two weeks. The drouth appears to cut no figure whatever with traders here, who entertain any doubt the dry spell is mors than an offset by the rapid accumulation, of stocks in the visible supply. Minnea polis and Duluth enjoyed their usual run and was a bear argument. Cables held out no inducements for buyers.
