Osage City, Kas., .June 16. During a
quarrel back of Whalen Eros. saloon
in this city yesterday afternoon an un
known man was killed and some others
wounded. It is rot known who fired

a shot was fired, and all the crowd,
with the exceation of the man who
was shot, ran from the place. Soon
after this the man was found dead.
He was about six feet in height, with

In the saloon at the time of the quar
rel were Tom Whalen, Edward Wha

Philippines since my return. I know aa
a fact, however, in spite of all that
has been said, that the Philippine is
lands are in the possession of the
United States and "he United States
can not get rid of them and can not
withdraw. Intelligent men of the Fili
pinos want United States protection
and government, and to them I have
pormisedp rotection from all loss of life
andp roperty. and I know that this
countrv will fulfill that promise."

To the Populist Delegates of the First

Gentlemen: In view of the fact that
this is a presidential year, and Kansas
is conceded to be one of the great bat
tle grounds of the campaign, it stands
us in hand to have a good strong stale

Protest Against Riding
Chicago, June IS. Members of the
Christian Endeavor have gone on rec
ord against Sunday travel, and as a
result officials of the Nickel Plate road
have been obliged to change the sched
ule of a special arranged to carry a
large party to Boston.
Between 100 and 150 members of va
rious branches of the society will ar
rive in Chicago Sunday night, July 1,
on their way to the annual convention
at Boston. The Nickel Plate secured
the party for transportation from Chi
cago to Boston, and that there might
ot be any delay the officials arranged
for the train's leaving the city at 10:30
m. Sunday night, July 1. The leader
of the Chicago delegation did not ap
prove of this and communicated with
the heads of the various branches rep
resented. .With one accord they made
a protest against leaving Chicago Sun
day, and stated that unless a change
was made In the running time or tne
train they would seek some line which
would not compel them to travel on
that day. -
Mr. Callihan of the Nickel Plate was
informed of the situation by the east
ern office and at once informed the
Christian Endeavor leader that mat
ers would be arranged to suit him. It
was finally decided to change the leav-
ng time of the train, from 10:d p. m.
Sunday night to 12:01 a. m. Monday
morning. July 2.
The incident illustrates the growing
tendency of Christian societies to place
ban on Sunday travel. Last year
the Blue Ribbon special, bearing a
party of Toung Men's Christian asso
ciation members, was stopped in the
western mountains, wnere it was neia
over Sunday owing to the refusal of
the members to travel on that day. To
railroad officials the peculiar part of the
affair is that the western delegations
will travel the greater portion of Sun
day while coming to Chicago.
NEW BOCK ISLAND ENGINES.
Likeness of One Received by the
Passenger Department Here.
The passenger department of the
Rock Island in this city has been pre
sented with a handsome photograph of
one of the 22 locomotives recently
bought and delivered by the Baldwin
Locomotive works. The photograph is
12x30 inches. It Is m a frame two feet
wide by three and one-half long.
These new locomotives will be used
in the fast passenger and treignt ser
vice between Chicago, Kansas City and
Omaha. It is estimated that one of
these engines will be able to easily pull
a train of from 12 to 14 heavy Pullmans
at an average speed of 50 miles per
hour. The locomotives weigh 290,000
pounds. From the pilot to the rear
drawbar the distance Is 64 feet. The
tenders will carry 5,500 gallons -of water
and 10 tons of coal. The engines are
equipped with all the latest safety ap
pliances, including electric headlights.
SANTA FE PICNIC.
Three Thousand People Are Enjoying I
an Outing Today.
An extra force of ticket sellers was on
hand to meet the Santa Fe excursion
ists bound for St. Joseph this morning.
About three thousand people took ad
vantage of the low rate offered and are
enjoying themselves today. The trains
bearing the returning picnickers will
arrive in Topeka' about midnight.
The rules governing the sale of tickets
this year have been very stringent.
This accounts for the comparatively
small number of persons in attendance
at the picnic today.
This morning a baseball game be
tween the Santa Fe Reds and the Santa
Fe Rounders was played. The purse
of $10 was given to the winning team.
Besides the base ball game the other
sports were as follows:

Denver, June 16. Vice President
Winchell and Superintendent Dyer of
the Colorado & Southern railroad and
Superintendent Parker of the Santa Fe
line, .went out in a private car to Pu
eblo. "We intend to make some changes in
the freight yards in Pueblo,'" said Mr.
Dyer. "We now handle the Santa Fe
cars in Denver, and they handle ours in
Pueblo, though we have a yard here.
The Santa Fe yard is rather cramped
and having both yards there is a great
deal of unnecessary switching to be
done. We hope to lay enough track in
one or the other yard to make it possi
ble for us to handle all our freight in
one place. The other will be used for
storage of cars out of service."

NEW COUPLER TO BE ADOPTED.
Santa Fe Will Equip Passenger
Coaches With National Device.
The Santa Fe has been testing a new
car coupler for use on passenger trains.
The new coupler is called the National
coupler. It is designed to be used on
passenger coaches and may be used in
trains where soaie of the coaches are
equipped with old style couplers.
One great objection to equipping
coaches with the Trojan coupler is that
while some of the cars are equipped
with one kind of coupler and some with
the old kind, links and coupling pins
have to be used. With the new coupler
all this trouble is done away with.
All the private cars are equipped witn
the National. It is quite likely that an
order will soon be issued to equip all
other passenger coaches with it also.
