Otis, who arrived last Wednesday from Manila, was allowed to land. Several cases o smallpox on board the transport Meade were the cause of the quarantine and ueneraa uns and all on board had to sub nut 10 vaccination. (general Otis was brought over from Angel Island on a spe cial steamer furnished by General Shaf ter, who went to meet- the returning gen eral, accompanied by Surgeon Ma.ior Ar thur and Captain "Wilson. The partv was driven to the Occidental hotel, where Gen eral Otis spent the afternoon receiving callers and preparing for his departure east. It had been decided to receive General Otis here with full military honors, but for some reason this ceremony was omit ted. When seen by a representative of the Associated Press, General Otis, in re sponse to a request that he. make a state ment of the situation of the Philippines, said that while it would give him great pleasure to comply with the request, he was constrained to decline for the reason that such action, in his judgment, would be inconsistent with his duty as an officer of the army. Asked what would be the effect upon the war if the report of Aguin aido's death were true. General Otis said that the war was practically ended, that Aguinaldo's followers were deserting him fast and those who now remain with him are generally of the lower class. Most of his officers have left him, though some still remain in touch with him. Some of those who have left him are now entrae;ed in business in Manila, and others are hid ing in the mountains. Many of his clos est followers are very friendly toward the United States and that as soon as the na tives in general gain confidence in tho friendly onices of the Americans, there would be little difficulty in bringing them to terms. Asked -as to the commercial value of the. islands, the general said that they were vastly rich, especially in hemp, sugar and tobacco, and that as soon as the situation became more quiet, busi ness of all kinds would increase tremend ously, as it is now doing. General Otis would not state whether or not he favored the retention of the Islands by this country. In response to such a query he merely said: "We've got them now. What are we to. do about it?" Regarding the number of troops and the condition of the soldiers, General Otis said: "There are 5.000 effective troops, scat tered among the islands now, engaged in the protection of the people from guer rilla warfare, which is rampant in some sections. The general health of the troops is exceedingly good. The per cent of the sick for the month of April being but ten per cent. "The Americans can stand the climate better than the Filipinos, and especially during the rainy season did their health impress me. The. men are becoming ac climated and though it may become nec essary to send out relief troops at times, it will hardly be necessary to send sol diers very frequently." General Otis said that his own health was excellent, that the ocean trip had done him a world of good. General Otis will leave for Washington at once and will report to the president. He could not state when bis report on the situation would Ve ready, but he would first make a verbal report to the authorities in Washington and later hand in an ex tended written report. FOR A SOLDIERS' HOME. Washington. V. C, June 5. A measure which has been passed in the senate and which will receive attention in the house next session, has for its object the estab lishment of a national soldiers' home at Denver, Col. In connection with the measure, which was reported to the com mittee of the whole house and placed on the calendar, a report was made setting forth the advantages of establishing such an insfitution at Denver. Colorado. Utah. Wyoming. Montana and New Mexico have about 2o.00 soldiers in the borders, who would naturally be con tributary to a soldiers' home located at Denver. The cost of sending sold:ers from Colorado and the surrounding states to the eastern or western national homes is quite an item, which would be saved by the establishment of a branch home at Denver.

A conference agreement has been reached on a bill which opens to settlement about 2.400. 000 acres of public land. Senator Shoup (Idaho) originally proposed the bill, opening to settlement the old Ft. Hall, Idaho, military reservation, containing about 4u0,000 acres. Delegate Flynn, in the house, secured an amendment sim ilarly opening a tract of about 2.000,000 acres of the Kiowa and Comanche lands in southwest Oklahoma. The con ference has covered many weeks and has been very stubborn, but as agreed on the lands will be opened as stated. The Indians first receive allotments of Oklahoma lands of ISO acres each, with 480,000 acres to be held in common bv them, the balance of 2.000.000 being opened to homestead settlers for $1.50 per acre. RAILR0AD flEWS. Peavey Grain Company Secures 46 Elevators Along the Union Pacific Lines in Kansas. MORE WILL BE BUILT. Company Will Entirely Cover Union Pacific Field. Expects to Handle Large Portion of Present Wheat Crop. Salina, June 5. A new grain company has invaded Kansas and is making cal culations to handle a large portion of this year's immense wheat crop. It is Peavey Elevator company, which has its headquarters in Minneapolis, Minn., and which handles more grain than any other company in the world. Last year the Peavey company secur ed control of a few elevators along the Union Pacific in Kansas, and since then it has either built or purchased 42 eleva tors. It has also leased four in Saline county, and is building others. It now completely covers Union Pacific towna in central and western Kansas. The name under which the Peavey company is operating in Kansas is the Midland Elevator company of Kansas City. James A. Seaver, formerly of Sa lina, is manager of the company, and A. W. Wickham is its superintendent of elevators. The Midland company, how ever, is a part of the Peavey company. There is not a town of any import ance as a grain center on the Lincoln branch where the company has not either built or purchased, or is building, an elevator with a good capacity. It also has elevators at most of the points along the main line of the Union Pacific as far out as there is any grain raised. In Saline county it has leased the Eberhardt & Sudendorf elevator at As saria, the Miller elevator at Mentor.and the Donmyer elevator at New Cambria. Just recently it has let the contract for an elevator with a capacity of 15,000 bushels at Trenton. It has not and probably will not build an elevator at Salina for the reason that it is handling grain over the Union Pacific only, and if it came into Salina where there is competition in railroads it would divide the grain crop among the railroads. It covers the Union Pa cific in the same manner that the H. J. Light company covers the Santa Fe, ex cept that the Light company goes into all towns, no matter whether there are other roads there or not. The Peavey comnanv last vear hnn- dled one-tenth of all the grain in the United States, so it is claimed. The crop last year is estimated at 500 million bushels, and the Peavy company han dled 50 millions. Owing to the extensive operations it claims to be able to pay a higher price than smaller companies, and its coming into this territory will probably result beneficially to the farmers, if not to the otner grain men.

Santa Fe Chief Executive Will Decide Question of Train Service. The question of train service on the Santa ie is now in the hands of Presi dent Ripley. As soon as he announces his decision the superintendents will be called to Topeka and a new time card arranged to go into effect about July 1. It now seems probable that a limited train will be run between Chicago and San Francisco three times a week, the service to become daily as soon as tour ist business' to California opens in the fall. In this event the present service will be continued with practically no change. SANTA FE "REDS" WON. Found Osawkie Ball Team Anything But Interesting. The Santa Fe Reds played ball in Osawkie on Saturday that is. they went there for that purpose, but were in a measure disappointed. The team which they met was in no way equal to a grime -with them. The game' resulted In a score of 21 to 7. In the fourth inning the score was 5 to 4 in favor of the Osawkie team. In the fifth inning' about ten runs were made bytheReds. In the next two innings seven more runs were made. In the last five innings the Osawkie team was allowed to run in a. couple of men. In the last three, innings the Reds sent just three men to bat during each in ning. They struck out purposely so that the same might be finished in time to take, the afternoon train home. About twenty Topeka boys went down to see the game. H. & S. DEPOT FINISHED. It May Become a Union Station For Missouri Pacific and Frisco. Hutchinson, June E. Workmen are row busy on the new Missouri Pacific depot and from present appearances it will soon be ready to occupy. The win dow casings are of oak and the interior will , present ari . elegant appearance. The outside windows have been put in and the building begins to look very much like its, deserted condition was a thing of the past. A little work on the track will put it in shape to use, and before many weeks the Missouri Pa cific passenger trains will be running into town. There has been a great deal of spec ulation regarding what will be done with the spacious rooms on the second floor and rumor insists that they are to be occupied by the Hutchinson Kansas.. Salt company. Orte theory is that the building will be used as a union depot for the Missouri Pacific and Frisco roadsj when the Frisco gets in. STUDIED THE INDIANS.

It is said that Dan McGreevy, the Central Branch engineer who was let out because of the Effingham accident in which Lew Baker lost a leg, is shortly to be reinstated. It was his first serious trouble during the many years he has been on the road, and the other engineers have universally re quested his reinstatement. He was one of the trustworthy men of the road, and the company will probably make an exception in his case and give him back his old job. Atchison Globe. A meeting of business men was held at the Commercial club rooms here to discuss the proposed transfer by the Santa Fe of the master mechanic to Chanute. Recent reductions at the shops were also considered, and it was decided that a committee be appointed to represent the town before the Santa Fe oilicials at Topeka.

Total Abstinence a Condition of Release. News Political and Otherwise of Interest to Kansans. Governor Stanley, since he has been imposed upon by one or two men who sought to avail themselves of his con ditional pardon plan, has adopted addi tional rules, requiring answers to the following questions: First Age of applicant. Second Names of parents, if living, together with address. Third Residence of applicant for ten years preceding conviction. Fourth Business for ten years pre ceding conviction. Fifth Name and residence of last employer. Sixth Has applicant ever been under arrest before; if so, when and where and for what offense? Seventh Has applicant ever been in prison before? If so when and where and for what period? Eighth Has the applicant been In tne habit of using intoxicating liquors? It the applicant was addicted to the use of liquor in any form one of the conditions which the governor imposes is that the applicant shall pledge him self to total abstinence. The slightest infraction of this provision of the par don sends the applicant back to the penitentiary. The questions concerning the past history of the convict; seeking a condi tional pardon must be answered specifi cally in each instance. No generalities are accepted by the governor. If the questions are answered in an evasive manner the application goes into the files. If the applicant exercises due care and diligence in complying with the regulations made by the governor the case is given speedy and careful con sideration. The governor has had numerous let ters from applicants stating they were too poor to employ a lawyer to look after their pardon applications. One of these letters, a characteristic one. came to the executive office only a few days ago and the governor replied by say ing: "The services of a lawyer are not necessary, and the case will be given as careful consideration as possible. It is not necessary that members of the family of the applicant be present at the hearing because the cases all are heard without prejudice." DISTRICT JUDGE CONTEST. Lively Contest in the Lyon, Chase and Coffey District There is a lively fight in progress over the district judgeship including Emporia, Burlington and Cottonwood Fails localities. The fusionists now hold the office in Judge Randolph, but harmony does not prevail. Dennis Madden will contest for the nomina tion. Judge J. Jay Buck, of Emporia, is likely to be the Republican nominee for judge in the district composed of Lyon, Chase and Coffey counties. Judge Buck has the united support of ihe Re publicans in his home county, and the delegates to the convention selected in Chase county are said to be for him. These counties can control the nomina tion. Many years ago when the dis ttic; was new he occupied the bench, but since that time he has been en gaged in active, daily practice of law. The Kansas lawyers who have come in contact with him know that he is a man who makes his opponents work for any chance to win lawsuits. He is one of the prominent men in Kan sas, and has attained this position by hard work through long years of prac tice. A fine speaker, he is in demand in ail portions of the state. In 1SS4 Judge Buck was elected to the legislature from Lyon county, re ceiving practically two out or every three votes and running ahead of John A. Martin, the candidate for governor at that time. While in the legislature he did invaluable work for the State Normal School, and by his tact and skill managed the bill giving twelve sections of salt lands to that institu ti .'i. Twenty years ago he carried Lyon county solid, and would have been nominated for judge at that time but for a fight between Lyon and Greenwood counties over a senatorial matter. BRYAN WILL BE THERE. Promises to Attend Kansas Populist Democratic Conventions. One of the principal attractions for the Fort Scott fusion convention, July 24. is W. J. Bryan, who is reported as having accepted an invitation from J. I. Sheppard to be present during the convention.

The two conventions will ' take at least 2,000 people to Fort Scott, and Biyan is expected to draw at least as many more, so the town will be over run with visitors during the conven tion.

Secretary Root has made answer to the senate resolu tion inquiring as to the number of Fili pinos killed and wounded ,and the num ber of prisoners taken since the insur rection began. Having no detailed in formation on the subject the secretary cabled the inquiry to Gen. MacArthur commanding at Manila, and received the following response, which was sub mitted to congress: Manila, June 4, 1900 Adjutant General, W ashington: With reference to your telegram of 22d ultimo: Filipinos killed 10.7SU; wounded 2,014; captured and surrender ed 10,424. Number prisoners in our possession, about 2,000. No systematic record Fili pinos casualties these headquarters. Foregoing compiled from large number reports made immediately after engage ments is close an approximation as now possible owing to the wide distribution of troops. More accurate report would take weeks to prepare. Number report- . ed killed probably in excess of accurate figures; number reported wounded pro bably much less as Filipino managed removed most wounded from field and comparatively few fell into our hands. Officers high rank and dangerous sus picious men have been retained as pris oners; most otner men discharged on field as soon as disarmed. Propose to release all but very few prisoners at an early date. MAC ARTHUR. BRIEF TELEGRAMS. Washington, June 5.
