J. G. "Waters Allusion to People Who
"Want Round Parks in Potwin.
The. Injunction case brought bv Judge
J. T. 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.
In his argument Captain Waters re
ferred to the streets as "cow paths" and
urgiied that Judge Clark had as much
right to say how the streets should be
paved a.s "this riotious assemblage,"

Santa Fe Freight Crashes Into a Street
Car at Hutchinson.
Hutchinson, Kan,, June 14. Three
women were instantly killed and a
number of persons seriously injured
here last night at 12:30 by a Santa Fe
freight crashing into a street car on
the main street crossing. The dead are:
Mrs. J. S. Patton, Mrs. Burton and Mrs.
George Koon.
The lodges of the city held an exhibi
tion drill at the auditorium which was
not over until midnight. The street
ears were all held at the park and were
rushing the crowd home. One heavily
loaded car had just erossed the Santa
Fe track missing the freight and an
other closely following pulled on di
rectly in front of the backing train.
The injured were taken at once to
their homes, and a number were hurt
whose names were not learned. Among
the more seriously injured were George
Koon, Mrs. Demera White and Mrs.
Dan Conklin.
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

Lord Roberts Captured Neither
Men Nor Guns
In His Recent Engagement With
Gen. Botha.
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
Advices from Cape Town say:
"At the opening of parliament, Mr.
Schreiner will explain that he resigned

moderate Afrikanders when a private

London, June 14. 10:33 a. m. The war

Lord Roberts, under date of Pretoria,
June 13, afternoon:
"The enemy evacuated their strong
position during the night and have re

Pretoria, June 13, 9:55 a. m., as fol

"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.
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.

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.
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

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

by the Commercial club, is about to

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

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.

How Near It Brings One -Into the
Shadow of Death. ,
After E. W. Howe, editor of the Atchi

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

General W. .L. Taylor, of Indiana, today

flaw in the indictment against W. S.

in the assassination of Goebel. This he

Chicago, June 14. WHEAT Wheat was
active and irregular during the forepart
of today's session. July opened to lc
over yesterday at 7440 to 74-ic on lack
of rain during the past twenty-four hours
in the northwest, continued pessimistic
crop reports from that section and higher
cables. Wheat in the Black Sea region
of Russia was reported suffering from
drouth. The northwest was a heavy buver
at the opening. The rally was lost, how
ever, on the weather bureau prediction of
rain for Minnesota and the Dakot.os. Julv
reacting to 73!;c. The Price Current said
the strong wheat crop had suffered a se
vere set-back while today's private ad
vices even from the northwest districts
where the best of recent rains have fal
len were that half tne average crop was
only a possibility under the best condi
tions henceforth. Portions of the south
reported heavy rains. Local receipts were
lit cars, three of contract grade. Min

73c. Late reports told of rain portions of
the wheat belt and a consequent slight
improvement in crop prospect.
CORN Corn opened strong in sympathy
with wheat and on expectations of a con
tinuance of yesterday's' excellent cash
business, but reacted when wheat lost its
earliest advance. Crop advices were fav
orable. July opened H to 9c higher at
39 to 39ic and declined to 3$c. where the
market steadied. Local receipts were 556
cars. -
The close in corn was easy, July c at

WHEAT Liverpool cables were
equal to above a cent a bushel and closed
at the same figures. 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. ' "
