President Eiplej of ,the Santa Fe Honored in Boston. Was CMef Guest at Chamber of Commerce Banquet. A SENTIMENTAL SIDE. jlr. Bipley Worked as a Mercan tile Clerk in That City. Also 31;ide His Start in Eailroad Work There. President E. P. Ripley of the Santa Fe was the g-uest of honor at the an nual banquet of the Chamber of Com merce at Boston last week. The ban quet was an elaborate affair and some of the most prominent men in the east were present. There was a sentimental side to Mr. Ripley's visit to Boston as the guest of the Chamber of Commerce. That city is the birthplace of the president of the Santa Fe and there he worked as a hoy. His first work was in, a mercan tile store. It wasi in Boston that Mr. Ripley first entered railway service. He secured position as a clerk in The Boston office of the Burlington road, and his connec tion Witn mat railway system was practically continuous until his election to the presidency of the Santa Fe. Mr. Ripley is looked upon as one of the most able ana conservative rail road managers in t'.ie country. The prcsperuy ot the Santa Fe since he be came its chief executive is a splendid testimonial to nis aDiiity. TRUE PLANTING FOE, TIES. Experi ments Made by Santa Fe Show Great Profits. The division of forestry is in consul tation with three important raiiway companies over a contemplated innova tion in American railway methods These roads the Atchison. Topeka & Santa re, the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul, and the Zanesville & Chit are considering raising tie and pole timber on a large scale on their now non-utilized right-of-way lands. Other large western roads are also interested. This action is due chiefly to the fail ing of the natural supply of this ma teria! in all but the newer portions of the United States. About one million acres cf timber are consumed annuaily by raiiroads in buiidings and repairing, and. a", the present rate of timber de pletion, the increased cost of such ma terial win soon be a serious factor in railroad economy. The Santa Fe line has already done some experimental pianting, and the results have done much :o stimulate interest. This road planted l."S'i acres in catalpas fifteen years ego. The total expense was $123. j: but it is estimated by the railroad officials that in ten years more the tract will hE.ve produced $2,560,000 worth of poles, ties and posts. Having become convinced of the necessity of growing their own timber, the raiiroads naturally wish to take ad vantage of the assistance offered by the government to tree planters which consists of expert advice, and of the working plans for planting, based on personal examination. The object of the government Is to demonstrate the value of tree plantations to land own ers, especially those in the treeless regions of the west. BOUND HOUSE FINISHED. Rock Island Improvements in Topeka Axe Nearing Completion. The Rock Island's improvements in this city are being pushed as rapidly as possible. The round house has been completed. The paving of the floor will be finished within a few days. The turn table which has been in use on the north side will be transferred and wi)l be placed in position in front of the new round house. It will be ready for occupancy this week. The work of grading for switches is still in progress. Already a great many miles of switches have been laid. This apparently is not adequate as more track will be laid as soon as possible. Because of a lack of space the coal sheds have had to be built almost half a mile west of the round house. How ever the chute is not large and should opportunity occur to place the chute nearer the round house not much trou ble would be encountered. Y. M. C. A. SONG SERVICES. Railroa.d Branch Stakes a Move That "Will Likely Meet With Favor. The Railroad T. M. C. A. has insti tuted a weekly meeting which will be devoted to song service. The first of the series will be given tonight in the Y. M. C. A. Parlors. The programme for tonight includes a duet by Misses Laura and Media Till son. a solo by Miss Serena Pratt, a solo by George W. Anderson, and songs by the Steve's quartette. The feature of the evening will be the duet by Florence ar.d Alice Tucker, two little girls about 12 years old. Alice will play the accompaniment on the guitar. These song services will be continued indefinitely. Only sacred music will be used. It is anticipated that a lively interest will be stirred up. and that the services will prove a success. IMPLEMENTS FOR KANSAS. Many Car-Loads of Machinery Are Coming Into the Stsfte. That the Kansas farmer is enjoying unusual prosperity is shown by the amount of machinery and farming im plements being shipped into the state. A Rock Island freight train recently was almost wholly composed of cars containing farm implements. The Rook Island is not alone in this. Large con signments may be seen en route to Kansas points on all the roads. This is a red letter year in Kansas and th? railroads expect to be kept busy in hauling the products to market this fail. For months past the roads have been endeaoring to get all equipment in as good a state of repair as possible. When the rush commences every avail able car will be needed. START WORK ON ORIENT ROAD. Grading to Be Commenced on 120 Miles South of Wichita. Kan:as City. June 13. M. P. Paret, chief engineer cf the Kansas City. Mex ico & Orient road, and W. C. Edwards, one of the directors of the Kansas & Oklahoma Construction company, left last night for Wichita, where they will at once start the work of building the 120 m;!es cf track from that citv to ward the Canadian river, this construc tion coi tract I'o t Mr. E. tion company having taken the Con or that part of the new roadbed. L. ilartin, of the executive board, said yesterday it was expected to have the grading finished, within ninety days and that the rail3 would be laid and the road, put in operation from Wichita 120 miles southwest with in six months. Contracts have not been awarded for other parts of the line and it is likely nothing in this direction will be done until the return of Mr. Etilwell from the east. REPUBLICANS FAVOEED. Southwestern Roads Discriminate Against the Democrats. Chicago. June 13. Lines composing the Southwestern Passenger association have apparently made a discrimination in rates in favor of the convention of the Repub lican party. The association has granted a flat one-half fare rate for the Philadel phia meeting, while a rate of one-fare plus $2 has been granted for the Kansas City gathering. The lines composing the association are: Santa Fe. Rock Island, Gulf. Colorado & Santa Fe, Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific, Houston & Shreveport, Missouri. Kansas & Texas, Missouri Pa cific Port Arthur Route. 'Frisco Line. Iron Mountain. Cotton Belt, Southern Pa cific and iexas & Pacific. Various reasons are assigned for the discrimination, but so far as the ordinary individual is concerned the explanations do not explain.- All the Texas and south western Democrat knows is that he will pay $2 more in proportion for going to the .Democratic national convention than his Republican neighbor will pay for the same privilege at Philadelphia. One ex planation is to the effect that the lines in the association have an agreement where by no excursion rates will be made less than ore fare plus $2. forgetting that, de spite this fact, the open one-fare rate was accorded the Republicans. An attempt was recently made in the Western Passenger association to discrim inate in favor of the Republicans, but it was promptly squelched by the far-seeing officials. LOW RATES FOR STUDENTS. Western Roads May Declare a Rate of One and One-Third Fare. Chicago, June 13. College students in Western Passenger association territory may be able to travel to their homes and back to school during the summer vaca tion at reduced rates. Lines in the asso ciation are now voting on a proposition to grant students a rate of one and one third fare on the certificate plan. The proposition was submitted in response to several requests made by persons inter ested in western educational institutions. It is likely that the matter will receive favorable attention because of the fact that there was considerable rate cutting last summer by which several of the west ern lines secured a large proportion of the business of transporting students. In order to avail themselves of the rate, if it is granted, the students will be com pelled to obtain certificates from the head of the institution which they attend, and which will certify that they are members of that institution, and are going home on their summer vacation. It will also state the date when the college year begins. HARVEST HAND DEMAND. At Present There Are Several Men For Each Job Offered. Kansas City, June 13. An order for 200 harvest hands to go in a body to Russell, Kas., was received yesterday by Secretary George M. Foote, of the local passenger bureau, and by him turned over to Superintendent Howard, of the Missouri state free employment bureau, and Assistant Labor Commis sioner Scott, of Kansas, who are work ing together to secure harvest hands for the Kansas wheat fields. The men will be sent from here tomorrow- and will be met at Russell by a delega tion of farmers who need harvest bands. About eighty men were sent to the harvest fields yesterday, going to southern Kansas. The movement is ex pected to be heavier each day from now on, and to be very large by the latter part of this week. There are now sev eral men in waiting for each job offered but by the first of next week this may be reversed. The state labor bureau in the Temple block has more appli cants for work in the harvest fields than its force is able to register, al though it is working long hours, open ing at 6:30 a. m.. an hour and a half earlier than, usual. ROCK ISLAND LOSING MONET. Business of the Road in Nebraska Shown to Be Unprofitable. Lincoln, Xeb., June 13. The Chicago, Pock Island & Pacific railroad has filed with -the state board of transportation a voluminous statement, covering the movement of live stock to South Omaha over that road from points in Nebraska during the months of December, ls99, to May, 1000, inclusive. According to the statement 35 cars of cattle, 50 cars of hogs. 1 cars of sheep and 7 mixed carloads have been moved, at a cost to the shipper of S2.358.SS. The amount which would have been collected -for the same serv ice under the carload rate, the report says, is 52.S75.51, making what is termed a "net decrease on account of the change of rate basis" of $16. 6S. George H. Crosby, secretary of the same railroad, has also filed with the board a sworn statement to prove that the business of the road in Xebraska is very unprofitable. According to Mr. Crosby's statement, the total operating expenses in Ne braska during 1S&9 were $1,016,679.29. During the same year the gross earn ings are given as follows: Passenger earnings 1208,242.15 Colonel - . V.'' V- S: -- Tn a'- tT V - wr s itTl 4- ' - '' ... - . X a - - f ''-;.

Williams Says He Will Publicly Discuss Paving Delays. A. L. Williams says he will hire the Grand opera house to tell the people of Topeka how they are being imposed upon by the city council and the pav ing contractors. He left Tuesday for Quincy. 111., with is family, but will return this week Mr. Williams lives on Fillmore street and the contract for paving in front of his place w as awarded to John. Ritchie last October. The grading has not been completed. It will require at least two weeks of hard work before the street is in shape for the paving. Fillmore street, where the graders had been at work, presented a far from pleasing appearance yester day. Mr. Williams waxed eloquent in describing the trials and tribulations of the taxpayers who have put up the money to pay for street improvement. Mr. Williams said the work had been delayed in many ways that were un avoidable and also in many ways that might have been avoided. One cause of delay in the work has been the constant trouble with labor ers. Then, according' to Mr. Williams, the big grader seemed to break down when the men had decided to work, and between the grader and the labor troubles the residents on the street have become exasperated, their pa tience has been exhausted, and they will demand that something be done. ANOTHER PROPOSAL. L P. Campbell Will Withdraw if Duvall WilL I. P. Campbell of Wichita, has offered to withdraw, as the Populist nominee for congress in the Seventh district, if Mr. Duvall will do the same thing, thereby opening the way for the nomination of a new candidate for congress. In a. long letter to Mr. Duvall, Campbell, among other things, says: "I today place my resignation, and decli nation, as the nominee for congress of the Populist party in the Seventh congres sional district, in the hands of the Popu list committee of said district, with the request that the same be accepted by such committee when the Democratic commit tee of the Seventh district receives from you and accepts a like resignation and ! declination. This is to be done within the next fifteen days. "This places the matter wholly within your power. If you conclude to hand to your committee your resignation and de cline to be the nominee, then my resig nation takes effect. If you conclude not to do so, they my resignation and declin ation is to oe returned to me without ac tion by the committee. "I have thought seriously of tendering my resignation unctualihedly and without the conditions attached to it as above and would do so but for the fact that ft is my belief that nine-tenths of the Populists in the district and fully one-half of the Democrats are opposed to my doing so. i have received hundreds or protests against my doing so. and am very con fident that such action would result in very great dissatisfaction and at the same time would subject me to severe criticism. "If I should resign absolutely It would leave my party without a nominee and without an opportunity to choose one un trammeled by your Democratic nomina tion, and you would be made the nominee in a measure by my action and not by the action of the Popojfst party. If we both resign the field w-iB be clear and the privi lege and resions:oility will be upon the people and not upon us to select a can didate. "I make this, to me. great sacrifice, ac tuated by no bitterness or ill will toward you, for I have only feelings of good will and kindness, but I do it solely with the hope and desire that success may come to my cause and my party. Yours very respectfully." Temperance Club Officers.

New York, June 13 Secretary Gage was asked, says a Washington special to the Herald, if he would continue withdrawing government funds from national depositories, and if this action meant that the money stringency had disappeared. "These funds." said he, "will be with drawn from the depositories in propor tion to the amounts deposited until $25, 000.0rt0 has been turned into the treas ury for the purpose of paying for the two per cent, bonds which wiil be re deemed shortly. Yes. this is a sign that the money stringency has disap peared, but a still better one is the fact that money is plentiful in New York at 1 per cent. "I cannot tell whether any more than $2.".OOO.Oi0 will be called in. If the con dition of the treasury requires it this w ill be done. No. I cannot say whether any of the special depositories will be abolished. There is one thing certain, it is not the intention of the depart ment to take any of the money out of these depositories and place it in the vaults of the treasury where it will do no one good. It will be left where it is, if reeded. If conditions demand and it becomes necessary more money will oe piacea in these institutions during the fall. when the movement of the crops be gins and a great deal of money is need ed for that purpose." BECK AN EDITOR. Colored Populist Leader Revives Col ored Citizen. The Colored Citizen, a weekly paper published in the interest of reform among the negroes of Kansas, has beeii revived under new management. CoL James Beck.who organized the Twenty- third Kansas regiment and led it to Cuba during the Spanish war. will be the manager; P. C. Thomas will be the editor and G. W . Jones, associate editor. The paper will give loyal support to Mr. Bryan for president and John W. Brtidenthal for governor. If Col. Beck throws the same energy and good judg ment into the new enterprise that marked his career in equipping Gover nor Leedy's negro regiment, the paper is bound to be a success. Col. Beck said today: "The paper will maintain at all times a bold and fearless attitude for what it conceives to be the best interests of the negro race. Believing that the policies and practices of the present state and na tional administrations are destructive of the best interests of the people, white and black alike, cur paper will do all that it can to accomplish their over throw. We will be for Bryan and Breidenthal first, last and all the time." Shot His Comrade. Sioux City. June 13.

President Henry Wade Rogers, of Northwestern university, has tendered his resignation, to take effect on July 15. Dr. Rogers' resignation was a surprise to the trustees and pupils. The principal reason given ty the public for his action is a lack of perfect harmony between himself and the other authori ties of the institution.

Carbuncles, which are more painful and dangerous, come most frequently on the back of the neck, eating great holes in the flesh, exhaust the strength and often prove fatal. Boils are regarded by some, people as blessings, and they patiently and uncomplainingly endure the pain and inconvenience under the mistaken idea that their health is being benefitted, that their blood is too thick anyway, and this is Kature's plan of thinning it. The blood is not too rich or too thick, but is diseased is full of poison and unless relieved the entire system will suffer.
