MKS. CAKKINGER HURT.
A CUT IN WAGES.
Topeka "Woman Loses a Foot and Is
Otherwise Injured in Denver.
Mi's. Frank B. Carrir.ger, formerly of
this city, now of Denver, met with a
serious accident last Thursday. With
her three children, Jennie, aged lft,
Viella, S, and Ken, 6, she had been in the
city shopping and they were almost
home on their return when the surrey
ollided with a street car. All were
thro'vn nut, but none were much hurt
except Mrs. Carringer, who had both
feet badly crushed, her collarbone
broken and was otherwise injured. She
was at once taken to the hospital and
lier lilt foot was amputated. She was
fit last reports improving and was eon--ldertd
out of danger. She is a niece

Leads to a Big Strike in the Mines at
Scranton, Pa.
Scranton, Pa., June 8. The strike of
the drivers and car runners which be
gan in the Delaware & Hudson com
pany's Marvin mine on Tuesday spread
today to the Leggetts creek, the Dick
son and the Von Storch mines of the
same company, the men and boys of
these mines similarly employed as the
Marvin strikers going out in sympathy.
They refuse to return to work until
there is a satisfactory adjustment of
the wage differences on which the Mar
vin men struck. Their action has forced
a closing down of the several mines of
the company here and the threat is
made to carry the fight to every mine
of the Delaware & Hudson in the Lack
awanna valley.
Twenty-rive hundred workers are
made idle thus far. The strike is over
a cut of 10 cents per day in the drivers'
wages and eleven cents in the pay of
the runners, without notice. They now
demand an increase of ten cents per
day over the old wages, drivers $1.25;
runners $1.50. The fear is also expressed
that the trouble will spread to the Dela
ware, Lackawanna & Western miners,
the men and boys on strike declaring
the issue at the Marvin is only the be
ginning of a similar cut all through the
district.
CENTRAL BRANCH LANDS.
Reorganized Company Buys in 18,000
Acres of Kansas Property.
Atchison, June 8. The Missouri Pa
cific, or rather the reorganized Cen
tral Branch railway company, became
the purchaser of the 18,000 acres of
land offered for sale at the Atchison
court house Thursday by the receivers
f the Central Branch Union Pacilic
railroad.
Ueott-sentatives of the Missouri Pa
cilic claim that there is no intention,
v. hatever, to make the bona tide own
ers of the property sold by the receivers
tiny trouble; that the railroad will, af
ter today's rale is confirmed by the
courts, quit claim or release such prop
erties from any cloud that may have
been imposed upon them by today's
ale. They say that the sale was nec
essary to close up the Union Pacific
receivership, and that their railroad bid
in the property to protect its own in
terests and the interests of property
owners.

Ex-President Cleveland Not Bother
ing With Politics Now.
Princeton, N. J., June 8. When Gro
ver Cleveland was asked what he
thought of the recent letter of E.. C.
Benedict on the need of a new political
party he replied:
"Mr. Benedict has a perfect right to
assert himself and what he says has no
bearing whatever on me.
"1 do not know what Mr. Benedict
really did say in his letter because I am
not bothering much about pontics just
now. There has been no time when I
have given less attention to politics
than I am doing now."
Mr. Cleveland was asked concerning
the indorsement of W. J. Bryan by the
New York Democratic state convention.
He replied:
"That has not interested me at all."

numerous chairs and cosy corners were
arranged for the comfort of the guests.

great jars of white honeysuckle and
sweet peas. Long stemmed American
Beauty roses were used in the drawing
room, while jacqueminot roses held
sway in the library.
The greatest efforts however.had been
spent in the dining room which was
charming in yellow and green. The top

fern, dotted with tiny incandescent
lights which produced a very pretty ef
fect. In the center was a mammoth
bouquet of yellow roses, and yellow
roses and asparagus fern were also on
the sideboard.

roundings. Refreshments were served

AGREEMENT READY.
Santa Fe Will Sign a Stipulation
Concerning Additional Shops.
Vice President Barr of the Santa Fe
will forward from Chicago today the
agreement of the Santa Fe company in
the shop matter. General Manager
Mudge, who returned from Chicago
this morning, discussed the matter with
Mr. Barr, and will be in receipt of the
agreement tomorrow.
The agreement will state just exactly
what the Santa Fe company will do
in return for the land to be secured by
the Commercial club. It will amount
to a formal contract between the Santa
Ke and the Commercial club In refer
ence to the purchase of the land and
the construction of additional shops.
Mr. Mudge said today it is practically
certain that the hig locomotive erect
ing shop would be built next year. This
will be the largrest railroad machine
shop -.vest of Chicago, and will cost
at least $200,000.
The blacksmith shop will probably
be the only one of the new shop build
ings '.o be constructed this year.
LARGEST EVER, KNOWN.
RECEPTION TO OTIS.
Administration Will Aid in the Koch-
ester Affair.
New York, June S. A special to the
Herald from Washington says:
As far as the administration can ar
range it the reception of Major General
K. S. Otis in Rochester, N. T., on June
15, will be a brilliant affair. Secretary
Root has approved the order issued by
Major General Brooke relative to the
troops to participate in the military
pageant to be held.
Under General Brooke's order a camp,
to be as nearly a model ne as prae
ticable, will be established in the vi
cinity of Rochester, and these troops
will proceed to the camp to take part
in the parade: Light battery M, Sev
enth artillery, from Washington, bar
racl.s; two batteries Fifth artillery,
from Fort Hamilton; one battery Fifth
artillery from Fort Wadsworth: Major
J. B. Burbank and one baitery Fifth ar
tillery from Fort Hancock; head
quarters band and three companies
Fifteenth infantry from Plattsburg
barracks; one company Fifteenth in
fantry from Fort Ontario; two com
panies Fifteenth infantry, from Madi
son barracks; two companies Fifteenth
infantry from Fort Columbus.
Colonel F.dward Moale, Fifteenth in
fantry, will command the camp and
troops.
No special arrangements have yet
been made for the reception of General
Otis in Washington, though undoubt
edly some action will be taken by the
administration to show its apprecia
tion of his work in the Philippines.
It is asserted that the only cost to
the government of the participation of
the troops in the reception will be their
transportation, as they would have to
be fed and provided for no matter
where they might be stationed.
Volume of Failures For May as Re
ported by Dun & Co.
New York, June 8. Dun's Review will
say on Saturday:
Failures in May were not only the
largest ever known in that month since
records were made, but of SO months
covered by these returns only six have
shown as large liabilities. Contradic
tory though it may appear, the report is
encouraging. There was not a single
failure in the month which was calcu
lated to shake or did shake commercial
credits, which were stronger at the end
of May than at the beginning.
Neither were there any failure or nest
of failures calculated to create alarm
about any particular branch of business.
The large brokerage failure for about
$13,000,000 exceeded in amount all fail
ures in any month except one since 189S,
and with it came another for $735,000.
Nearly 60 per cent of the total defaulted
liabilities was due to five other com
mercial failures, while the ten large
failures ip manufacturing and trading
covered less than $3,000,000 liabilities in
all.
The number and amount of liabilities
of all commercial failures in May com
pared with last year are given below:
May, 1900, 947; 1839, 581. Liabilities,
May, 1900, $23,771,151; 1899, $3,820,ti86.
The returns to Dun's Review for May
show an unusually large number of
small failures. They exceed those of
any other year but one and this is con
sidered suggestive, also the increase of
over an eighth in average liabilities.This
the Review says is readily traceable to
the manufactories for the surprising in
crease in number, the smaller failures
in trading show lower liabilities than in
any other year except two. Manufac
turing liabilities have much increased,
however, the average for those small
firms, running close to $12,000.
1 It might be inferred that there had
been a really noteworthy expansion of
manufacturing indebtedness for the
season and in January a similar in
crease appeared, though very little in
February or March. An April the in
crease was about $1,500 per small fail
ure and in May 3.400. It is not difficult
to surmise that this has connection
with the general slackening of orders
for manufactured products which has
now- begun to produce a readjustment
of price.
PAN AMERICAN COMMISSION
Governor Stanley Appoints Repre
sentatives of Kansas.
Governor Stanley today named Mrs.
A. H. Thompson, of Topeka, to succeed
Mrs. J. K. Hudson as Kansas vice presi
dent for the Pan-American exposition
at Buffalo, N. Y., next year, Mrs. Hud
son having declined. Mrs. S. R. Peters,
of Newton, is the other vice president.
The governor named the following
commissioners to represent Kansas:
First district L. F. Randolph, Nor
tonville. Second district H. F. Sheldon, Ot
tawa. Third district C. A. Mitchell, Cherry
vale. Fourth district John Madden, Emporia.
Fifth district Col. E. C. Little. Abi
lene.
Sixth district W. H. Mitchell, Beloit.
Seventh district J. E. Junkin, Ster
ling. At large F. D. Coburn, Topeka,
NO REWARD FOR RHODES.
Governor Declines to Offer Money For
Capture of Pawnee County Man.
Governor Stanley today declined to
issue a reward for the arrest and con
viction of J. A. Rhodes of Pawnee coun
ty, who is wanted for three offenses, ob
taining money under false pretenses,
forgery, and violating the prohibitory
law.
Rhodes was in Missouri and the gov
ernor issued a requisition for his return
to Kansas but he has evaded the offi
cers and now a request is made that a
reward be offered.
The governor thinks it a questionable
proceeding, owing to the three charges
being made together, and owing to the
difficulty in determining whether the
man is wanted for the misdemeanor or
felony and he has declined to go furth
er into the case.

BRYA3 LACKS 1S4.
Short of a Two-Thirds Majority of the
Entire Convention.
Chicago, June 8. The Chronicle says:
Senator James K. Jofies, chairman of
the national Democratic committee, is
expected to reach Chicago early next I
week. Wm. J. Bryan, it is said, will
meet him shortly after his arrival and
plans will be discussed for the active
work of the Kansas City convention.
Keen interest is taken by officials at
national headquarters in the reports of
Democratic state conventions. Up to
date twenty-four states have held con
ventions. Of these twenty-two, repre
senting 4?.6 delegates, have instructed
for Bryan. Maryland and New Jersey
are unpledged, the former having six
teen and the latter twenty delegates.
Bryan now lacks only thirty instructed
votes of having a majority of the con
vention delegates.
The convention will be composed of
930 delegates, and as many alternates.
Vr.der the two-thirds rule, however, a
rule which has been enforced in Dem
ocratic national conventions for nearly
forty years, the nominee for president
or vice president must receive two
thirds of the entire vote given. Bryan
therefore lacks 1S4 votes for a nomi
nation on the basis of Instructed dele
gates. Just Received.

Assignee of Price, KCcCormick & Co.
Is HopefuL
New Tork, June 8. Assignee Curtis
of the firm of Price, McCormick & Co.
will not be prepared to make a state
ment for several days, but a prelimi
nary showing, now that many of the
claims are said to have been liquidated,
indicates that the firm will be able to
pay all obligations in. full and have a
surplus of about $250,000 after the cost
of the asigneeship has been deducted.
A conference will probably be held
next Sunday at which it is expected
that George Crocker, the special part
ner, now on Tils way back from Europe,
will be present.
According to a friend of Theodore H.
Price, it not impossible that a new firm
may be organized along the same lines
with new special capital. One altern
ative to this plan is said to be the for
mation of a firm consisting of George
Crocker, R. G. M. Stuart-Wortley and
W. G. McCormick, including possibly
Mr. Rutherford. Mr. Crocker's stepson.
who recently bought a seat on the stock
exchange. This latter firm, if formed,
would only operate on the stock ex
change, and Theodore H. Price would
tben resume business under a separate
arrangement.
