The Hntchinson Organization Objects to a Geography That Has a Picture of the Pope's Palace, ALSO TO READERS In Which Some of Pope's Poetry is Printed. Other Kansas News of General Interest. . Hutchinson, Jan. 7. There is trouble in the school board. Some time ago the board adopted the Kand-McNally geography, for general use in the schools. Since that time there have been some discoveries made con cerning that text book, which have caused some comment in the board, and a light has been started which may result in its being rejected and the contract re scinded. It is charged that there are really two editions of the Rand-McNally geog- - . f , s .1 1 j . a 1 iictjjuy. una its me euiuuu auuuieu uy the board, and the other is an edition in which couaiuerauie space is lukcq uu with pictures of Catholic buildings in Home, and with a history and statistics concerning the Catholic religion. This is what has brought about the "rumpus," and the A. P. A. element in the city will make a "kick" upon retaining the book, although the edition ordered does not contain the objectionable features. There are .several repreentatives of book companies in the city today who will offer inducements for the board to change its miud. The A. P. A. also object to readers used in the school because tnere is some poetry in it by the poet "Pope." The cry of "No Popery" goes up. HUTCHINSON' ISA N Sv GOES IX. Willing; to Take $100,000 In Gold Bonds if ObtaiiiHblt). Hutchinson, Jan. 7. The First Na tional bank of this city is as patriotic as it is enterprising. Some time ago the New York World made a proposition to Cleveland that it would assume the task of replenishing the gold reserve in the national treasury, if the president would issue three per cent bonds and sell them to American capitalists. Following this proposition made by the World, the First National bauk of this city this morning received a dispatch Irora that paper which reads: "We today ask all national banks whether, if the president should make a call to replenish the gold reserve, if they will consider it a patriotic duty to take bonds at a three per cent basis. Will you assist and to what extent?" To this the bank responded in the fol- lowing dispatch: "We will take one hundred thousand dollars of three per cent bonds. Favor a popular loan. "E L.

A meeting of the newspaper men of Leavenworth was held at the Commercial club's rooms on Delaware street yesterday and discussed arrangements for taking care of and en tertaining the Kansas Editorial associa tion, which will hold its annual meeting in this city February 17 and 18.

Colored Constable Ran Down the K CHped Red Men. Leavenworth, Jan. 7. The three Indian convicts Lewis Bibles, Shiner Modocee and Peter Foster who escap ed from the guards on the federal peni tentiary farm on the government reser vation last inursuay alternoon, were captured eight miles west of Reno in this county Sunday afternoon about 4 o'clock by two colored men of that township. Constable William Hawkins and Deputy Constable J. M. Nelson. Between 8 and 9 o'clock Sunday morn ing the three escaped convicts called at Deputy Constable Nelson's house near the town of Reno and asked how far it was to Coffeyville, Kan. Mr. Nelson said "about 250 miles.'' The Indians then asked for something to eat. Mr. Nelson told them to step into the house and get breakfast. Their clothes gave them away, especially the numbers stamped thereon. Mr. Nelson told the red men to eat breakfast while he went out to feed his horses. They were suspicious and quickly left the house, the one inside following, and started for the brush. Mr. Nelson ran for a horse; but before he could hope to overtake the fleeing In dians they were in the woods. A few minutes later Mr. Nelson rode to Constable Hawkins' house and ac quainted him with the facts. Together they rode back to where the escaped prisoners entered the woods. There they hitched their horses and took ud the trail. They followed it till about 4 o'clock in the afternoon when they came upon the convicts sitting dejectedly on a log. The smallest of the trio had become exhaust ed and could go no further. The biggest of the Indians jumped off the log and looked straight at the offi cers. Constable Hawkins leveled his re volver at the group and commanded "hands up." The Indians responded and immediately walked toward their cap tors. The prisoners were marched back to the home of Mr. Nelson where they were given supper. Soon after dark they were placed,ina spring wagon and started off for Ft. Leavenworth. ,'CHASKAN OirOKIAN.

FAST KUK ON THE SANTA FE California No. 3 Averages 52.3 Miles Per Hour From Kansas City to Hutchinson. Santa Fe California limited train No. 3 left Kansas City, Sunday, December 22. forty minutes late, owing to necessity of waiting for eastern connections, but reached Hutchinson, a distance of 234 miles, exactly on time, having made up forty minutes on present fast schedule, making all customary stops for passen gers, water, coal, etc., etc. en route. ThiB is an average speed of 52.3 miles per hour, which is certainly a remarkable record for a single track railroad, especially when the weight of the train is taken into consideration, same consist ing of one 60 foot mail car, one 60 foot baggage car, one 60 foot chair car. one 12 wheel dining car aad two 12 wheel Pullman cars, total of six cars. It must further be considered that fast limited trains of lines east of Chicago and St. Louis, seldom carry more than four cars, all of which are constructed especially for fast runs, and are much lighter in weight, while it will be noticed that the equipment on the Santa Fe lim ited train is heavy 12 wheel Pullman sle.epers, diuing curs, baggage cars, etc. On certain portions of the run between Kansas City and Hutchinson the train attained a speed of from 60 to 63 miles per hour; for instance, Plymouth to Saf fordville, 3.6 miles, 4 minutes, average speed per hour, 54 miles; Saffordville to Strong City, 8.2, 8 minutos, 61.5: Strong City 10 Evans, 4.2, 5 ntinutes, 50.4; Elm dale to Ciemonts, 7.3, 7 minutes, 62.6; Clements to Cedar Grove,, 4.9, 5 minutes, 58.8. The distance, Plymouth to Cedar Grove, of 30.7 miles was made in 32 minutes, average speed of 57.6 miles per hour. Had it been necessary the same aver age speed of 52.3 miles per hour would have been maintained or exceeded through to Dodge City, but as the train reached its own schedule at Hutchinson, where it was on time, it naturaily followed its customary schedule from that point to'Dodge City over a por tion of the road where the greatest speed is usually obtained. This in connection with the remarkably fast run from Denver to Colorado Springs, Cripple Creek and Leadville made on January 1, places the Atchison, Topaka & Santa Fe in the front rank among western roads. NOT SPRINGLIKE AT ALL. The Weather Bureau Missed Jnst About SOO Miles, More or Loss. The fickleness of the gentle Kansas zephyrs was attested last night, when in stead of maintaining their southern lo cation and continuing the fine Italian weather, as was previously arranged by the weather bureau, they changed to the north and inside of tweive hours, dating from 7 o'clock last evening, suc ceeded in blowing the temperature down twenty degress. This was occasioned, says Weather Observer Jennings, by the low barometer moving rapidly eastward. This afternoon the cloudiness of early morning has disappeared, and the weath er is fine, although the wind continues chilly. Along the lines of the Santa Fe in the southern part of the state the weather was reported clear and cool this afternoon; in the northern por tion of the state cold and clear. On the eastern division of the road a partial cloudiness is reported. Along all lines of the Rock Island in Kansas the weath er is reported partly cloudy. In Texas nn J Colorado the weather is clear and mill; in New Mexico, clear and pleas ant Fair weather with stationary temper ature is predicted for Kansas tonight and tomorrow. TRANSFERS HIS PROPERTY L. M. Crawford Deon- Grand Opora House and Crawford Flats. . Manager L. M. Crawford of Topeka is disposing of his Topeka property that is to ail appearances, ho is disposing of it. Today he filed a deed in the register of deeds office transferring the Grand Opera house to the Missouri, Kansas & Ne braska Opera House and Amusement company. This same amusement company is L. M. Crawford. He holds practically all the stock, but in 1893 $250,000 in'first mortgage bonds of the company were issued and sold, so Crawford is the owner subject to these bonds. The con sideration named is $30,000, but it is not probable that Mr. Crawford's bond holders put up that much money as the house is cov ered by mortgages amounting to about $20,000. The transfer wao probably made Jitnply for convenience and to quiet the holders of the first mortgage bonds on tho Crawford circuit. . A deed was also filed on the property "known as Crawford's flats, between Quincy and Monroe on Fifth street, to Lewis Sells. The consideration is named as $14,000. When Mrs. Sells-Greenspan was about to foreclose on Crawford's St. Joe opera house Mr. Lewis Sells was in Topeka and it was said at the time that he paid Mrs, Sells-Greenspan the amount of her claim, about $6,500. Re also held a second mortgage on the Crawford flats for about $12,000 and Mr. Crawford has now transferred the prop erty to Mr. Sells, it is presumed in dis charge of the debt. Mr, Crawford was seen by a Journal reporter, but refused to talk about the transfers. Mrs. Greenspan Sues. Mrs. Sarah Alien Sells Greenspan to day began action in tbe district court against George and Thomas Love and Howard Chalmers for $320, which she says the Loves owe her for rent of a farm. On the fifteenth day cf Jauuary, 1895, they rented her farm until March 1, 1896, and were to pay her $350 ou Jan. 1, 1895. The time has passed and they have failed to do it. She says they have sold crops of the value of $350 to Howard Chalmers within the past 30 days. Big Shoe Firm Fails.

A dispatch to a local paper from London says: The noise of war's alarms should not distract attention from the marvelous triumph of science which is reported from Vienna. It is announced that Prof. Routgen, of the Wurzburg university, has discovered a light, which for the purpose of photo graphing, will penetfate wood, flesh, and most other organic substances. The professor has succeeded in photo graphing metal weights which were in a ciosed wooden case, also a man's hand which shows only the bones, the flesh be ing invisible. The Chronicle correspon dent says the discovery is simple. The professor takes a so-called crookes pipe, viz: A vacuum glass pipe with an induc tion current going through it, and by means of rays which the pipe emits, photographs ou ordinary photographic plates. In contrast with the ordinary rays of light the rays penetrate organic matter, and other opaque substances just as ordinary rays penetrate glass. He has also succeeded iu protographing hidden metals with a cloth thrown over the camera. The rays penetrated not only the wooden case containing the metals, but the fabric in front of the negative. The professor is already using his dis covery to photograph broken limbs and bullets in human bodies. THE NEW YORK READY. Tlio IJlg Armored Cruiser May Be Sent to Turkish Water. Chicago, Jan. 7.

Wheat Early continental cables came lower and dull this morning and caused an easier feel ing on the curb. May wheat selling at 588 about 9:15 a. in., but second cables shewed wonderful strength and Liver pool came one penny higher with con tinental markets strengthening and ad vancing. There was plenty of good bull news flviog around all day. Brad- streets showed million de crease in the world's visible. Some war news between England and Ger many and further bad crop news from Argentine and Wall street houses got d ouyers, while the four ports cleared ncrurly a million bushels of wheat and flour. Corn and Oats Very strong. Cables came higher, exporters report good de mand, aud commission houses report good local business. Corn market acts stubbornly strong acd the best informed people are buying moderate lines for long account. We think corn aud oats will sell much higher. Provisions opened off on heavier re ceipts of hogs and heavy sales by longs taking profits depressed the market still further. We believe pork a gilt edged investment on any furh'er decline, Tho situation warrants a higher rane of prjees. irpetl. iiisu i.iv.
