Won His Title "Gallant Tim" in Civil War. Timothy McCarthy, ex-state auditor, one of the most familiar figures in the affairs of Kansas, died suddenly at his home in Larned yesterday afternoon at 4 o'clock, from heart failure, the result of a complication of troubles beginning first In the lungs. Mr. McCarthy has been a sufferer for several 'months but he was slowly gaining during the past week and his death came as a great surprise and shock to the community. In the list of men who have been con- workers in the W. R. C. There has not been an encampment of the Grand Army in Kansas for 25 years until the last one at Holton. which McCarthy did not attend aod his presence assured the visitors of half a dozen good speeches and at least a dozen new stories. He was the best story teller in the organi zation and one of the best stump speak ers in Kansas. There never was a time when McCarthy was not ready to re spond to demands for a speech and he always pleased his hearers. The state- G. A. R. department will have charge of the funeral. Commander W. W. Martin has issued the following special order: "With deep regret the department commander has learned of the sudden death of Timothy McCarthy at his home at Larned at 4 p. m. June 12, 1900. "It is hereby ordered that all depart ment and past department officers wherewer possible attend the funeral of out late comrade to be held at Larned at such time as will hereinafter be an nounced." The funeral wi'.l be held at Larned at 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon. The de partment officers of the G. A. R. and some of the state officers will leave to night at 12 o'clock on the Santa Fe to be present. WANT STREET CARS. Topeka Avenue Residents Ask That Line Be Operated or Taken Up. The residents of Topeka avenue, be tween Fourteenth and Fifteenth streets have piesentedwa petition to the city council requesting that the street car line sout h of Fourteenth street either be operated or taken up. This line was built about 12 years ago and has been operated only when there was some attraction at the fair grounds because the street railway company did not consider that the line paid at any other time. The petition is signed by all the residents of the city living on To peka avenue below Fourteenth street and by several property owners who live on r.he same block outside the city limits. That section of the avenue from Four teenth to the city limits will be paved this summer as it is included in the new paving contracts let by the city and the residents of the adjacent property will use every effort to have the track torn up or operated. President C. C. Baker of the city rail way says it is the purpose of the com pany to operate this line as soon as it can be put into shape. yHEAHIASOM, Two Pardon Cases Now Before the Governor.

The Methodist Kpiscopal Sunday school nf abftha is holding a picnic in Tnpt-ka today. An outing of this kind in an annual affair with the Sun day school of Sabctha. this being the third occasion of this kind which they ha e enjoyed during the past three years. The first picnic was brought to Topeka three? years tipco. Last year it was decided to hold the outing at home, and it was accordingly held In a grove near Sabetha. A special train of six coaches was furnished by the Rock Island railroad to transport the crowd from Sabetha to Topeka. The train was gaily deco rated with flags and streamers, and as it steamed into teh station 'the air was filled with the shouts of nearly 700 Jjeople. Rev. J. S. Ford, pastor of the Sa betha Methodist church, has been an energetic and untiring worker in mak ir.B the picnic a success. Associated with him as a committee on arrange ments were the following gentlemen, business men of Sabetha and members of the Methodist church: C. W. Doug lass, Roy Hesseltine, John Lanning, W. F. Ingham, and V. II. Farrager. Xo prearranged programme was car ried out during the day. On reaching Topeka the pleasure reKers divided into small parties and enjoyed them selves as they were inclined. Those bringing lunches went to Garfield park, where it was eaten in the shade. Other parties visited the state institutions. Many climbed the many flights of Ftnirs to the dome of the state house. The asylum, the reform school, the public library and all other public buildings were visited. The clerks at the dry goods stores and bargain counters were kept busy all day at tending to the wants of tile ones who took advantage of the opportunity of making their purchases in the city. The excursion train left Sabetha early this morning and arrived in this city at 10:1 j. Returning the train will leave the Rock Island depot this evening at 7:lf.. At 1:30 they assembled in the hall at the state house and were addressed by Governor Stanlev. NOMINALLY BEHIND BARS. "Well Known Populist Politician Ee fuses to Give Bond. R. H." Semple, better known as Col. "Bob" Semple, was nominally behind the bars at the city prison Tuesday af ternoon In reality he was not. The case of the city against the Amity club was called at 4 o'clock. Semple was arrested, as president of the club, or. the charge of selling liquor in violation of the law. The case came up for trial yesterday and was continued until June 20 by the city attorney. Sem ple was informed by the court that he would have to again furnish bond or be committed to jail. Semple refused to lurnish any more bond. Police Judge Magaw ordered him committed to jail. Semple's attorneys at once brought ha beas corpus proceedings in the court of appeals for his release. The court was in session last night for the hearing of the petitions and ordered briefs submitted and the hearing of the case was set for July 10. Semple's bond was placed at $:i00. He furnished it. The defense will be mads on the ground that the city or dinance under which Semple was ar rested is void. The point to be made is that there is a state law which makes all fines collected payable to the school fund and that in Topeka fines collected under "he liquor ordinance are turned into the city treasury. It is claimed that the City has no power to impose im prisonment. HEADACHE! DR. RAD WAY & CO..

He was not a man of surpassing brilliancy in intellect, but he was a shrewd, witty Irishman, with an alert mind and a dis position which was always kind and generous, and he was an honest, upright man. But few men in Kansas have attained the great personal popularity reached by McCarthy. One of his strong char acteristics was story telling and his good humor and native wit made him a congenial companion under all circum stances. McCarthy served through the war of the rebellion and had a collec tion of letters from his commanders of which he was very proud. These letters commend his dashing bravery in battle and contain notes of thanks for the per formance of hazardous duty. When Tim McCarthy came to Kansas the state was young but he was a sea soned soldier, having seen 13 years of active service. He was mustered out at Fort Wallace in 1867 and landed at Larned in 1870. Mr. McCarthy was 65 years of age. He was born in Killarney county, Ireland, in 1835, but left that country for America when 16. He knocked around New York for three years then enlisted in 1854 in the army. He served in the department of the Gulf, at Fort Duncan and was mustered out in 1859 at Fort Lancaster, Texas. In 1861 the civil war began and McCarthy was among the first to enlist. He was sent with the noted First Two Hundred to reinforce Fort Sumter and after the surrender of that post returned to New York. From Governor's Island he was assigned to Major Anderson's command and participated with that division in the illfated battle of Bull Run. York town. Gaines'- Mills, Antietam, Chan- collorsville, Fredericksburg. Gettysburg and Rappahannock saw him in service but the three years of his enlistment ex pired in 1S6-1. H? was mustered out as sergeant major. He reenlisted the same day and went to the front this time with Grant at Petersburg. McCarthy was one of the men who carried mes sages between Grant and Lee at the surrender at Appomattox. Mr. Mr Carthy then saw service in the west un til he was mustered out at Fort Wal lace, Kan., in 1867. The aggressive spirit in McCarthy's disposition soon placed him in the front rank cf citizens in Pawnee county after his removal there in 1870. Soon after wards he was chosen county clerk, then county commissioner, then postmaster and in a few years this association de veloped him asa thorough-going politic ian. -His work in the Republican party soon became known outside of the coun ty in which he lived and in those days wTilch followed he wielded a powerful influence in the "short grass country." In fact, to the work done by McCarthy in the early days may be attributed the wonderful politica-1 organization which now exists in the Seventh congressional district. Men worked together in har mony and when one of their number wanted anything the whole crowd was up and after it for him. The same spirit pervades that district today. It is gen erally conceded by the politicians that the Seventh is the best organized dis trict in the state just as it was in Mc Carthy's time. When "Gallant Tim," as his friends were wont to call him decided that he would well adorn the chair of state auditor, the whole western part of the state was for him. And, he won handily. He was first elected with Gov ernor Humphrey in 1S88 and reelected In 1820. The next public position which he occupied was department commander of tne Kansas o. a. r. In addition to these public positions Mr. McCarthy was the greater part of me nine mayor or .Earned and was holding that office at the time of his aeatn. Mr. McCarthy retired from public life in 1S95 and established the First State bank of Larned, since which time the public has seen little of him. He has been at home attending to business and as r.e once said to a State Journal re porter: "Enjoying the society of my good wife or vi nom 1 nave seen little while chas ing public office and campaign insr." Mrs. McCarthy was Miss Julia Seely oi xvnoxviue, rau They had one child. a uaugnier Nora, who Is now Mrs. Gil bert Sells of Winfield. Before being married Miss McCarthy was a frequent visitor in Topeka the guest of Miss rana crane .daugnter of Mr. and Mrs ueorge . Crane.

Says He Would Not Serve if Elected Vice President Philadelphia, June 13. The Times says editorially: "The name of Rear Admiral Schley has been repeatedly suggested as on the list from which the Democrats will be likely to choose their candidate for president or vice president, but all who know the views of Rear Admiral Schley uniformly declare that such use of his name is not only unwarranted, but against his own distinctly expressed wishes and purposes. He was specially careful before going to sea in command of the South Atlantic squadren to de clare to his friends that under no cir cumstances would he consent to become a political candidate- The expression of the rear admiral refusing to accept public office has just been repeated by him in a private letter to the editor of the Times dated Rio Janeiro, May 15, from which the following extract is taken: " 'Your editorials touching the talk of placing me in nomination with Mr. Bryan reflects precisely what my views are. I know nothing of politics nor cf political life, and under no circum stances would I allow the use of my name before anv convention for any office whatever. I have passed the age when presidential or any other kind of bees worry me. I know nothing of the duties of any political office, and am fully content to live the years yet left me in quiet retirement from the turmoil of any office. I am resolved irrevocably not to accept any nomination if it were tendered and if in my absence I should be elected I would not serve 'This letter from Rear Admiral Schley was written without any view of pub lication and in all- the frankness of trusting friendship but it is only an act of injustice to him that his views thus clearly and pointedly expressed should be known to the whole country." v TALK OVER PLATFORM. Harrison Wheat, a .Topeka colored man, robbed William Norton of S7.50 and got ten years in the penitentiary. Harry Mason of Marion preferred cred itors, kited checks and wrecked a bank. He was sent up for two years. The friends of .Mason contend that he has been sufficiently punished. The same position is taken by Wheat's friends. Application has been made to Gover nor Stanley for a pardon for Wheat. In January, 1897, he was sentenced to ten years in the penitentiary for robbery. In a letter to the governor Judge Hazen eays: "At the time of the trial and sentence, while I had doubt, of the defendant's guilt, yet I felt that the circumstances surrounding the commission of the of fense were such that the least punish ment that could be Imposed, ten years, was too severe, and I then announced that I would, after the defendant had served three years in the penitentiary, recommend his pardon. "In my judgment his is a proper case for executive clemency and I would recommend that he be pardoned. "I would have been better satisfied with the verdict if the jury had only found him guilty of larceny from the person, although I think the jury justi fied in the verdict returned." The following signatures, "concurring" in Judge Hazen's recommendations, ap pear on this letter: A. P. Jetmore, Galen Nichols. Mayor C. J. Drew, A. K. Rodgers, Postmaster John Guthrie, A. M. Callaham, clerk of the court: Probate Judge Dolman, Judge Arthur McCabe, E. L. Good, F. M. Stonestreet, J. D. Sneed, P. W. Barker. E. C. Stoner, W. E. Stewart. On another petition for the pardon appear the following names: John M. Wright, Frank L. Stevens, register or deeds; Otis E. Hungate, A. M. Calla ham, W. H. Williams. L. S. Dolman, T. P. Rodgers, chairman board of coun ty commissioners. An amusing incident in this case is a "shot" at Henry Allen by Warden J. B. Tomlinson, of whom the governor sought information concerning Wheat's prison record. It was found that Wheat had been disciplined severely. Under date of April 11, 1900, Mr. Tomlinson states the following violations: "First Yelling and singing in his cell. "Second Throwing dice across the cell and refusing to fold his arms. "Third Talking and laughing in dining room. "Fourth Talking out loud in the dining room. "Fifth Talking, lying and attempting to bluff an officer. May 19, Mr. Tomlinson wrote the gov ernor saying: "That last report against Wheat was made by Henry Allen's man, Pat Lavey, and was not entitled to the weight given it by the board of direc tors. June 9 Mr. Tomlinson writes again, concluding by saying: "Lavey was in the habit of magnifying cases which he reported and I think he did so in this case. I think most of the offense was in Lavey's mind and not in the act Mr. Tomlinson states that Wheat "is a quiet prisoner and a good worker. I have a good impression of him."

Trade was large and considerable nervousness was shown. July opened ?4c to lc lower at 72r-4 to 721--;c. In North Dakota and Manitoba, however, the drought still continued and damage reports were numerous. There was also a rumor current that Japan had declared war against China. There had been some heavy selling early, but these considerations turned the tide and July rallied to 78e. Later July, touched 74c, but reacted on profit-taking and closed firm, a shade over yesterday. . CORN Corn early was weak with wheat. There was considerable pressure to sell and the demand was slack. July opened lc down at 38c to 38 and sold down to 3Sc. At the decline trade was large.' Influential bulls came to the sup port of the market and the wheat rally served as a support. July rallied from the bottom, to 3STc. Receipts were 349 cars. The corn market closed steady, July a shade under yesterday at 3S"'Rc. OATS Oats were easy and dull early, but turned firm and were fairly active later, helped by the corn firmness. July opened 4C lower at 217-aC a.nd rallied to 222C. Keceipts here were 133 cars.

It rained pretty generally in the northwest yesterday and ndications are tne protracted arousm. iu that territory Is broken at last.

The mar ket closed strong and at the top, virtual ly for the dav. We are friendly to corn and believe prices will seek a higher level. OATS Oats were strong. There were some good-sized lines sold out by timid holders on account of general rains and better government report than antici pated, but offerings were easily absorbed and the market closed firm. PROVISIONS Liberal receipts of hogs and lower prices at the yards caused lower market for the options. There were some big lines of July Pork thrown over board. This ought to leave the market In a better condition. J. C. GOINGS. Topeka Hide Market. Topeka, June 13. GREEN SALT CURED-fic. NO. 1 TALLOW 3ic. GREEN SALT HALF CURED 64c New York Money Market.
