Clark to restrain the city from building octotranal parks in the center of the paving in Pntwin Instead of round one Wiis heard by Judge Hazen this morning and the. decision will be made Saturday morning. The plaintiffs side of the case was con tested on the grounds that the parks were originally round and have been so for 17 years and that the city has no right to change them unless they are condemned for street purposes. City Attorney Bird was placed, on the stand as a witness. "rid you ever make a. trip to the subdi visions laid out by Mr. Potwin?" was asked him. "YVs. with Mr. Potwin." "What old you go there for?" "I was talking of buying a lot and went out to see it. Mr. Potwin explained to me that he wanted to get a few good people out there and that then the rest would follow." "Judge Clark was the first to buy a lot. v.a.s he not?" asked Joe Waters.

PEK1N CUT OFF. Minister Conger Not Heard From For 36 Hours. Washington, June 14. It was said at the state department today that no re quest for 2,000, or, in fact, for any num ber of troops had been received from Minister Conger, as reported from Shanghai. As a matter of fact, the state department has not heard from Minister Conger for thirty-six hours past. As it is gathered that the Kuro pean foreign offices are in precisely the same position respecting their diplo matic representatives at Pekin, it is assumed at the state department that telegraphic communication between Pe kin and the outside world, which for the last three days has consisted of a single line running north into Russian Manchuria, has at last been totally in terrupted. The statement that this government has not in the-slightest degree changed its position respecting the inexpediency of landing united States troops in China is made with the knowledge on the part of the state department offi cials of the current reports that other powers interested, notably Great Brit ain, Russia and Japan either have al ready or are about to land troops at Taku and Tien Tsin. There seems to be a disposition to make a distinction between the use of troops and marines under existing conditions It probably is assumed that the presence of ma rines cn Chinese soil, indicating from their character that the landir is purely temporary, is much less apt to raise grave international issues either with China or the other powers repre sented at Taku. Their employment therefore marks the kind of the force to be put in playl by the United States government according to the present determination, but for whatever injury has been sustained by the "United States either through the killing of citizens or the destruction of missionary property, China will be held for a heavy in demnity. The Japanese authorities here say the lokohama press dispatch stating "hat Japan is about to send a mixed regiment to China is undoubtedly cor rect, as it tallies with what has been expected in diplomatic quarters. Mr. Nabeshima, the charge says there are hree ports at which warships and transports assemble, namely Yokosuka, Kure, and Sasebo. He believes that the movement will be made from Kure. The headquarters of the fifth military divis ion is only two miles from the naval port, so that no time need be lost in get ting troops aboard the transports in case the movements are decided upon. In some diplomatic quarters there is talk of a joint request by all of the par lies interested to ask either Japan or Russia or both of them, to land a strong force of soldiers instead of the limited number of marines now available. This, however has not yet taken official form. Mr.- Nabeshmia says Japan would not act along such lines unless all the pow ers united in a request of that character. In that event, he feels Japan could very reaoily and single handed put an end to such a war as she could forward a large force of soldiers, capable of re pairing the line to Pekin, and maintain ing perfect quiet. Iu another high diplomatic quarter representing one of the first powers of Europe, it was stated that as Russia snd Japan both had large forces of sol diers near China, it might he expedient for the powers to ask them to each ser.d .n equal number of soldiers. This it was stated would create a balance be tween Russia, and Japan, relieving both of them frcm the suspicion of dispatch ing a large military force for ulterior ends. Mrs. Thomas Gets $1,200.

London, June 14. Lord Roberts' en gagement with Gen. Botha terminated as expected, by the Boer commander in chief retiring from his positions. Beyond driving Botha further from the capital, little seems to have been accomplished, as Lord Roberts does not mention the' capture of prisoners or guns or the in fliction of loss. Perhaps the most im portant feature devolved by today's of ficial dispatch is the announcement that the administration of Natal is at last in touch with Lord Roberts' troops. The accomplishment of this movement, long delayed, should considerably accelerate the pacification of the Transvaal. That it is already bearing fruit is evidenced by the submission of the "Wakkerstroom district to Gen. Lyttleton. Another dispatch from Gen. Buller says Gen. Cleary encountered no oppo sition in his march from Ingog to Laing's Nek, which he now occupies. Gen. Dartnell marched through Laing's Nek June 13 (Wednesday) on bis way to Charlestown . The press dispatches says Charlestown was partially destroyed previous to its evacuation by the Boers but that no damage was done at Volks rust. In the Orange river colony affairs seem to be returning to the same status as obtained previous to the cutting of the line of British communication. Mr. Schreiner appears determined to adhere to his resignation of the pre miership, in spite of the pressure brought to bear on him by Sir Alfred Milner, the British high commissioner and it is announced from Cape Town that Milner has sent for Sir John Gor don Sprigg, the former premier, who is understood to be trying to form a cabi net Advices from Cape Town say: "At the opening of parliament, Mr. Schreiner will explain that he resigned because he was unwilling to remain in office supported by the opposition be lieving his influence Is greater with the moderate Afrikanders when a private member than as premier by the grace of the progressives. Nevertheless lead ers of the Afrikander extremists are said to consider Mr. Schreiner a traitor to their cause." BRITISH ARE COLD. New Tork.June 14. The London Daily Express correspondent telegraph from Machadodorp, 14 miles east of Pretoria, under date June 10, in connection with the capture and destruction by the Boer general, Dewet, of 3,000 suits of cloth ing: "The British soldiers complain much of cold. There is much suffering among them and the hospitals are full of the sick and exhausted. Sickness among the horses, too, is increasing, thousands of animals having succumbed at Kroon stad." LYTTLETON OCCUPIES WAKKER STROOM. London, June 14. General Buller re ports to the war office as follows: 'Headquarters. Laing's Nek, June 14, morning Geenral Lyttleton yesterday received the formal submission of the town and district of Wakkerstroom, which the enemy is believed to have completely evacuated." London, June 14. 10:33 a. m. The war office issues the following report from Lord Roberts, under date of Pretoria, June 13, afternoon: "The enemy evacuated their strong position during the night and have re tired to the eastward. Buller's force and mine have afforded each other mutual assistance. Our occupation of Pretoria caused numbers of Boers to withdraw from Laing's Nek and Bul ler's advance to Volksrust made them feel their rear -would be shortly en dangered." KROONSTAD STRONGLY HELD. London, June 14. Lord Roberts re ports to the war office under date of Pretoria, June 13, 9:55 a. m., as fol lows: ' "Methuen advanced to Honingspruit yesterday and found all quiet. Kroon stad is strongly held. Methuen re turned today to Rhenoster river, where the railway is being repaired. We were engaged, all yesterday with Botha's army. The enemy fought with consid erable determination and held our cav alry on both flanks, but Ian Hamilton ?-ssisted by the guards brigade of Pole- Carew's division, pushing forward, took the hill in his front, which caused the enemy to fall back on their second po sition to the eastward. This they are still holding. It is slightly higher than the one we have captured. The great extent of country which has to be cov ered under modern conditions of war fare renders progress very slow. "Details of the casualties have not reached me, but I understand they are moderate in numbers. The only fur ther casualties reported to date are two officers wounded." General Buller's casualties on June 10 have been issued by the war office. They were 26 killed, 120 wounded and two missing. TO CHEAT THE LAWYERS. John Taylor Is Spending Hia Fortune For Monuments. West Chester, Pa., June 14. In order to preclude the possibility of a contest over his will after he is dead, John G. Taylor, of this place, is now engaged in expending a fortune of $100,000 in monuments. Mr. Taylor's avowed pur pose is to use all his money in improv ing Brandywine battlefield, a short dis tance from the spot where Lafayette fell wounded. The body of Taylor's father, mother, wife and child are buried there. Quietly and without ceremony Mr. Taylor yes terday unveiled his fourth monument. The shaft is of white enameled brick containing a niche in which is a life sized figure of Christ in marble. The statue was made in Carrara, Italy. Near this pile, Mr. Taylor has com pleted the base of a $25,000 monument commemorative of General Lafayette. M'LEAN'S SEW JOB. 13 Appointed District Passenger Agent of Illinois Central. Springfield, 111.. June 14. J. Wr. Mc Lean, formerly general passenger and ticket agent of the Chicago.

LONG AUTOMOBILE RACE. Contest From Paris to Lyons For the Bennett Cup. Paris, June 14. The international automobile race for the James Gordon, jKennett cup, n-om pans to Lyons, was won by M. F. Charroo. of Fiance. Alexander Vinton, of Cleveland, ., participated in the coniesu SLATE IS READY. (Continued from First Page.) Alabama case is said to have been largely inspired by a desire to discour age contests, and as it makes little difference this year which way the de cision crocs the committee think3 it would be a good time to inaugurate a reform. One member of the committee has suggested that the various contest ing delegations should be made to agree among themselves or be refused admis sion to the convention, but the feeling disulaved in many of these factional fights makes such a course highly im probable. While there mav be some discussion of the resolution introduced by Mr. Payne requesting the president to in vestigate the interference of federal of fice holders in Alabama politics, that is all that is likely to come of it. In discussing the subject today Senator Hanna remarked that there were enough investigations going on now and he saw no necessity for bringing the president into the matter of the selection of delegates. Other members of the committee are of the same opin ion and they doubt propriety of pass ing such a resolution. ADDICKS ON HAND. The subcommittee appointed last night to attempt to harmonize the differences between the contesting del egations from Delaware met this morn ing previous to the meeting of the Re publican national committee, but ad journed without reaching a conclusion. The purpose of the subcommittee is to get both factions to make concessions if possible, but so far they have been unable to secure any promises to that end from the Dupont delegation styled the "regular Republicans." They decline to accept Mr. Addicks but have asked for further time. Mr. Addicks was be fore the subcommittee at the morning meeting and professed himself willing to accept any reasonable compromise. It was 11:30 o'clock when the full com mittee assembled. The Delaware case was temporarily passed over and the contest from the First Georgia district taken up. The contestants in this case were Joseph F. Doyle and R. R. Wright and the contestees J. J. Deveaux and W. R. Leaken. The contest grew out of the rival claims of J. B. Delegal and L. M. Peasant to the district chairmanship. The committee decided in favor of the Deveaux delegation. The contest from the District of Co lumbia was settled in favor of J. E. Jones and W. C. Chase. They were the contestees presenting credentials showing that they had received a ma jority of the votes cast. The contest ants were Dr. Robert Reyburn and Geo. Wr. Lee, a colored preacher. Dr. Rey burn made an argument in his own and Mr. Lee's behalf, asserting that the ballot boxes were stuffed, and that Chase had certified to his own election. No argument was mada on the other side. Louisiana was taken up after the disposition of the District of Columbia contest. There are three sets of con testing delegations from the state at large, known as the Wimberly, War mouth and Herwig factions. The com mittee took a recess at 1:30 until 3 o'clock. The Louisiana cases probably will occupy all the afternoon. GAGE PARK ROAD. Half of Necessary Money For Pavement Is Pledged. Mr. H. W. McAfee, chairman of tfie committee on roads and bridges, made the following report to the Commercial club on the progress being made in the good roads movement: "Tour committee on roads and bridges have to report that the move ment for permanent roads, inaugurated by the Commercial club, is about to bear fruit. Arrangements have been practically completed and the money subscribed to build a macadam road from Washburn college to the Mission township line. The committees appoint ed will meet Saturday to elect an over seer and begin work. A subcommittee was appointed to ascertain what could be done towards paving Sixth avenue from the city limits to Gage's park. The estimated cost of brick pavement with oak curbing is J13.0C0, of this amount $6,200 has been pledged and we are rea sonably sure of additional pledges In amount sufficient to begin work this year." ICS IGHTS AND LADIES. National. Officers May Be Placed on Salary Basis. Judsing from the manner in which the national council of the Knights and Ladies of Security is conducting the business it will probably be to morrow or later before the business of electing officers is reached. The time Wednesday afternoon was occupied by considering all the pro posed amendments to the constitution, but not one passed the council. This leaves the term of office four years in stead of two as proposed. Last night degrees were conferred on several candidates by the drill team of council No. 2 of this city. An exhi bition drill was also given. During the session this morning the council was notified that a member of the order had been killed in the Hutch inson wreck "and that two others had been injured. tine of the changes proposed today is that the officers shall be paid a salary instead of receiving the remuneration by fees. The president is now receiv ing a salary and fees which last year amounted to more than $4,000. The secretary receives 50 cents for every certificate issued and the medical di rector gets 50 cents for examining the papers from each applicant. BOOM FOil TORREY. Senator Warren "Wants "Wyoming Man For Vice President. Washington, June 14. Senator War ren, of Wyoming, in an interview today endorsed the candidacy of Col. Jay L. Torrey of his state for vice president on the Republican ticket. "I am for our fellow citizen against the field," said the senator. "He is a prompt, courteous and uignmea presid ing officer; he is a strong man; he showed his patriotism by putting on a uniform; he always has been a useful, helpful citizen: he has been tried and never found wanting in a professional, business, military or political way. His nomination would strengthen the party." FLOODS IN THE SOUTH. Indications Are That the Freshets of April Will Be Equalled. . Laurel, Miss., June 14.

Howe, editor of the Atchi son Globe, had reached Queenstown on his way to Paris, he wrote to his paper that he would remain abroad until a bridge is built across the Atlantic ocean. tie was desperately seasick all the way over, and he recounts some of his thoughts and experiences as follows: I was accompanied on the voyage by a man named Shoup, a friend of mine from the west, who had never seen much of the world, either, but he seemed to enjoy the trip as much as I had expected to. We had not been an board an hour before he knew half the passengers. Some of them came from Illinois, where he used to live, and although I really felt like Some, to bed, Shoup kept disturbing me every little while to introduce some new friend he had made. All of these fellows noticed that I was not doing well, and had something to say about it, which I thought disgusting. Shoup was on speaking terms with the officers by 6 o'clock, and I had a notion to ask him to use his influence to induce the captain to turn back, for I was cer tain by that time that the trip would not agree with me. I had purchased a steamer chair, in which I was lying wrapped in a blanket, and when I saw the sailors climb the masts and remove the white covers with which the dirty sails had been con cealed In port, I gave up, and took all the remedies tor sea sickness offered. I longed to go to bed. When Shoup fin ally started to lead me to my room, he couldn't do it, I was so heavy, and he was compelled to call on some of his friends from Illinois to assist him. Four of them were compelled to carry me, and I hated everybody on the ship rrom that moment, for I was certain they were all laughing at me. Being left alone, in an indifferent sort of way I began watching the objects in me room, l remember a valise and a small trunk particularly, for every time the ship rolled, the trunk and valise would appear from under the bed and run races. At first I bet on the valise, because it was the lightest, but I soon found I was losing my money. After that I backed the trunk, in which I knew Shoup had a very large pistol that I hoped would go off. 1 wanted something desperate to happen. There was a certain time in the -ship's motion when I did not take any interest in the racing between the valise and the trunk. In the motion of a ship there is a certain drop which can not be calculat ed, and which will make you so much worse that you can not think of anything else. Although there is no average, I should say it happens fifty times a day. Sometimes it happens that there are two drops in as many minutes, but they never happen when you expect them. If two come close together you begin looking for another right away, but another one does not come until you have forgotten all about the matter. Some of these days there will be a dreadful accident at sea: a ship will start downward on one of these drops and never stop until it reaches the bottom. I know it. Mr. Shoup wa3 a good deal cut up when I told him of my determination to desert him, but I was firm, although he predict ed now that I had earned my sea legs, I would enjoy the return trip. But I knew better, and went about collecting my effects to avoid missing the tender, which was to come off from Queenstown. I was the first man on the tender after the plank was thrown out, after giving Shoup a few tritles to take back to my friends, and the last I saw of him he was waving a handkerchief at me. If you ask me when I am coming home, I will reply never. Queenstown is not much of a place, but it is good enough for me. It is at least steady, and I feel safe. When I pay for meals here, I can eat them. They say It is more pleasant in Belfast, but there may be water to cross between here and Belfast, and I will not risk the move. When a bridge is built between Queens town and my native land. I shall be glad to return, but until that time my family will find it necessary to get along without me. Of course, I regret that I am an exile, and would prefer to live in my own country. but there is something dearer to me than liberty, to-wit: my life. Whiie 1 wits at sea. I was so near death that I could look into the valley of the shadow, and now that I am feeling well again. I do not care to run any more risks. The only think I like about the sea is the shore. MBS.

There seemed to ba a world of wheat wanted at the opening, which was over a cent above hist night 3 closing, but offerings were so heavy that buying orders weie withdrawn. Logan and Schwartz-Dupee & Co. were the heaviest sellers and most of it was prolil taking. No rains were reported in the northwest, but showers are predicted for this afternoon and tonight, and if they do not materialize wheat will open high er in the morning, just as it has been do ing for several days. The Price Current was a surprise to bears as it stated positively that severe damage had been done to spring wheat by the drought and that the total wheat crop would not exceed 6o0.00u.000. The trade expected the Price Current, would be very bearish and went over night "short." They were ' among the buyers at the opening. We feel friendly, to wheat and believe prices are entirely too low. We advise buying on such breaks as this one today. CORN Cables were firm and corn open ed up at ar. advance of about He. bet eased off slightly in sympathy with the break In wheat. - There was a strong undertone to the market, however, and good buying orders appears on a break of half a cent. OATS Oats were hrm and good invest ment buving is steadily going on. FP..OVISIONS Provisions were lower again on account of liberal receipts of hogs and lower prices at the yards. July pork only showed a net less of 2c a bar rel compared with last night's close. The market does not look weak to us and be lieve July pork will do to buy. ' " J. C. GOINGS.
