This Amount at Least Will be Consumed Each Year. $25,000 Will he Spent In Equipping Locomotives. Los Angeles, July 7. The Santa Fe Railway company, which was the pio neer consumer of California oil as fuel in large quantities, thus making it pos sible for the oil industry to reach its present local importance, has decided to further increase and practically double its consumption. Arrangements for the proposed change are now being rushed to completion, and by October 1 every engine on the system between Needles on the east and on the north for the entire length of the line to Point Richmond, will be equipped for and will burn oil. The announcement made on the sub ject today at Santa Fe headquarters in this city la the mdst important in the oil industry of the city, as the new move will, it Is estimated, almost dou ble the company's oil fuel now being used. The present amount is in round figures about 30,000 barrels a month. When the engines between Barstow and Needles are burning oil the amount used is expected not to fall short of 60, 000 barrels a month. The company began burning oil about six years ago. The coal fuel was first discarded on a few engines on some of the Southern California lines. The experiment proved a success from the start, and as fast as it could be done the company enlarged its capacity. The discovery of oil near Bakersfield and in the Fresno fields, came at an opportune time, and when the San Joaquin valley line became a part of the Santa 5 e system, the operators who had uncover ed and had corralled the oil deposits in that vicinity found that they had an easy market at their door. The Santa Fe has since January 1 been burning oil on all of its engines between Bakers field and Point Richmond, in addition to using oil between Los Angeles so far east as Barstow. It will cost the Santa Fe $23,000 or more to equip its engines between Bar stow and Xeedles for oil burning pur poses, and the company has just con tracted for the erection of three steel storage tanks for the storage of its supplies of oil. One of these tanks, each of which will hold 250,000 gallons, will b located at Needles, one at Barstow and one at Point Richmond. The com pany is now pumping from its own wells in the Fullerton field about 300 barrels of oil a day. As has already been stated, about 60,000 barrels will be needed after October 1, and all of this amount will have to be purchased in the open market. The contracts for this enormous supply are now being per fected and will soon be let. ROCK ISLAND EARNINGS.

In one of the stalls of the Santa Fe round house in this city there stands the trucks of a small car with a large boiler or tank resting on them. The tank is not inclosed at either end. It is the remains of the engine termed the "Midget." It was Intended that this engine be used for light work around the round house and its motive power was to be compressed air. Since the fatal explosion when the ends were blown out of the tank and two men were killed, nothing has been done towards rebuilding the engine. It is given out, however", that the en gine will be rebuilt, but not until new plans have been perfected. This will probably be within the course of six weeks or two months. Santa Fe Fuel Contract. The bids for the contract of handling fuel for the Santa Fe have not been op ened. This matter was turned over to Mr. Player, and because of his absence from the city the matter has not been taken up. Mr. Player returned today but it is thought he will not get to this matter this afternoon. It will probably be finally settled Monday. The new con tractor will take charge of the otSce on July 15. Delegates on a J unket A party of visiting eastern delegates to the national Democratic convention which adjourned yesterday, passed through Topeka last evening over the Rock Island. A special train of Pull mans was chartered by the party and it was run as the first section of No. 9. which leaves Topeka at S:10. The party will go to Colorado where considerable time will be spent in sightseeing before they return to their homes in the east. Farewell to J. H. Banker. The members of the bridge and build ing department and water service, who were in the city yesterday, called at the home of Mr. Banker in the afternoon, prior to his departure for the south, and presented him with a handsome ring on which was engraved a Masonic emblem. The presentation speech was made by Robert Collins, and was replied to by Mr. Banker. It is a handsome token of tire esteem in which he is held by those In his - employ, and Mr. Banker will treasure It highly. A social hour was spent by those in attendance after the presentation ceremonies were over. Mr. Banker left for Cleburne last night. Newton Kansan. Re-Icing California Fruit The work of re-icing fruit in transit from California to the east over the Santa Fe has grown to larger propor tions than usual. About 200 tons of ice Is used per day.

Round House Improvements. Several improvements are being made at the Santa Fe round house. A num ber of doors leading to the stalls are being torn down and replaced with new ones, and all the woodwork around the doors Is being painted a dark; red. FROM NEWTON. H.

He will return in a day or so and take active charge of his work here. M. C. Todd of Topeka and Ray Heivly, a former Kansan employe, are now identified with the store department of the Santa Fe under the supervision of C. R. Kmsey. This department is get ting to be a busy place since the con solidation of the two divisions, which necessitated the additional help. S. A. Fulgroat, one of the popular brakemen employed by the Santa Fe, met with a serious accident on the Fourth, which will probably result in the loss of a portion of two and possibly three fingers of his left hand. At the time of the accident he was attempting to ignite the fuse of a cannon cracker when a premature explosion took place, and before he could throw the cracker from him, his hand was badly lacer ated.

TOWN'S OWN PARTY Finally PreTailed Upon Not to Nominate Him. Whole Matter is Turned Orer to the Committee. Kansas City, July 7. Two minutes after Chairman Brown called the Silver Republican convention to order at 3:30 yesterday afternoon the convention vented its feeling concerning the nom , ination of Stevenson by howling down Delegate Lewis of Nebraska. "I be- , lieved this morning it was our plain duty to nominate Bryan and Towne," he said, "but I believe now it is our plain duty to endorse Bryan and Steven son." A perfect storm of groans and protests arose from the delegates, many or tnem stanaing on their chairs. No, never," "sit down," "rats," they shouted and Mr. Lewis was finally com pelled to take nis seat. Senator Ransom of Nebraska gained , the floor, and in an eloquent speech pleaded for moderation. "We came here as patriots, he said, "while we have met with a great disappointment yet we must be sober, sensible and must act wisely." Senator Ransom proceeded at some length in this strain, but finally he, too. was interrupted by the Impatient dele gates. "What do you favor?" asked one del egate. "Tell us now." "I favor the nomination of Towne," said Senator Ransom, "but let us not act until -we hear from him. He will be here soon. Webb McNall of Kansas was then recognized. "It is not necessary to go outside of our party for a vice presi dent," said he amid shouts of approval. "Do you gentlemen want the tail of the Cleveland administration? Do you be lieve it good judgment?" The hall fair ly trembled from the storm of "noes." "Nominate Charley Towne." veiled a delegate. Amid much confusion and the pounding of the chairman's gavel Mr. McNall shouted, "I move that Charles A. Towne be declared the un animous choice of the convention." "I second the motion," shouted a dozen delegates at once. "Wait, gentlemen," exclaimed Senator Teller springing to his feet. "We want some calm deliberation." "We have had it for three days," in terrupted a delegate. "No man living should stand in the way of this cause," continued Senator Teller. "I believe this contest Involves the life of the republic, a contest for liberty, for the existence of free govern ment. Let us wait; let us wait until we hear from Mr. Towne." "Senator Teller, I would as soon vote for a black snake as for Stevenson," in terrupted a Nebraska delegate. Cheers and hisses greeted this remark. "Don't, gentlemen," pleaded Senator Teller. "Be moderate." With his voice betraying deep emo tion Senator Teller said: "I am going to support Mr. Bryan and the ticket in every way I can, not for Mr. Bryan, but for the country which I so love," and then Senator Teller with tears streaming from his eyes took his seat. - W. T. Foster gained the floor and in sisted upon the chair putting the ques tion. During the confusion resulting. Charles A. Towne entered the hall and in an instant the hall was in an up roar. Cheer after cheer went up and flags and handkerchiefs were waved by the excited delegates. Towne was Im mediately surrounded by those on the stage. "Mr. Towne, we want to nominate you," said an Indiana delegate. "I don't want you to do it." said Mr. Towne. "I understand what my duty is in this matter." "We must insist on it," put In an other delegate. "You have no right to refuse. You will break us to pieces." Mr. Towne, pale-faced, but deter mined, shook his head emphatically. "Please give him a chance to be heard." shouted Chairman Brown, and the delegates one by one took their seats. Mr. Fleming, a delegate from New Jersey, mounted the platform and de manded recognition. He regretted to say that the proposed conference be tween a representative from the Popu list party and one from the Silver Re publican party with a representative of the Democratic national convention had not been held, and for himself he be lieved that it was the duty of the con vention to go on and complete the ticket by nominating Charles A. Towne for vice president. Mr. Fleming then gave way to Mr. Towne. ."The Silver Republicans have made a good fight," said Mr. Towne. "They have been defeated. But," he said, "it Is your duty to support the ticket nomi nated by the national Democratic con vention." He insisted that there was an issue In the coming election which towers above men, and he implored the convention to look at it as he did. He begged them to remember that Bryan was still at the head. The platform of the Democratic party was almost iden tical, at least in principle, with the platform of the Silver Republican party. While Mr. Towne was speak ing several attempts were made to in terrupt him with questions. The con vention howled down these attempts until Mr. Towne yielded to the ques tions, after which Mr. Towne again In sisted that it was his wish that the convention should not nominate him. The convention gave Mr. Towne most respectful consideration, and while he was speaking it was evident that the convention was disposed to follow Mr. Towne's advice and wishes. By a practically unanimous vote the convention referred the vice presiden tial nomination to the national com mittee with plenary power, and at 5:22 p. m. the convention adjourned sine die. ENDORSE STEVENSON. Silver Republican Committee Futs His Name on the Ticket. Kansas City, July 7. The conference of the representatives of the fusion par ties developed a peculiar situation in some respects. The Democrats were anxious for the withdrawal of Towne from the Populist ticket, and the Silver Republicans, that, so far as they were concerned, they would, through their committee, name Stevenson for vice president, although profoundly disap pointed that Towne was not named by the Democratic convention. The Popu lists were not In favor of the with drawal of Towne and maintained that the Populist national convention, act ing under instructions of the Sioux Falls convention, would be compelled to put another candidate in the field if Towne should withdraw and that the Experience of Prominent With Peruna. r SI 01P j L.I s " I f J&P?fAMIK 71 V I The v remedy .-"'-""",",,","" '"' ' stomach Consrreasman John L.

Congressman Sheppard uses Peruna in his family, and saya: 'I bave used Peruna in my family and found it to be a most excellent remedy for ail catarrhal complaints." Mr. W. W. Strasler, 35 N. Center street, Corry, Pa., says: "I tried three physicians and spent a great deal of money, all to no effect. My friends said I could not get well. I had about given up all earthly hopes. I weighed 130 pounds. I aceidenatlly saw the name Peruna. I immediately commenced tak ing it and continued taking it until I had taken twelve bottles. I then weigh ed ISO pounds, and never felt better in my life. I am a walking monument of the virtues of your Peruna." In a later letter he says: "l am a friend of Peruna. I should have said Peruna is a friend of my personal de light. I take great pleasure in telling the public the benefit 1 nave received committee could not withdraw him. More than this they asserted that if Towne be withdrawn and they should not nut another man in his place their organization would be endangered and sucn action woum result 111 x-uv""3t; going over to the middle-of-the-road ticket nominated at Cincinnati. This would lessen the chances of carrying states in the west and inter-mountain country. It was also said that Mr. Bryan had been apprised of the situation and that se'eral men had receivea wora irau him to keep Towne m the field ana to run a double-tailed ticket in oraer to hold the Populist and Silver Republi cans in the western states. The fact that a number of senatorships depended upon the success of the fusion of all forces was given as a reason why the Populist ticket should be kept in the field. It was claimed by the Populists that two senators in Nebraska, one in South Dakota, one in Kansas, one in Colorado, and, possibly in Wyoming, depended upon perfect fusion of the three forces. The . Populists made a plea for delay, saying that thirty days from now they would have an opportun ity to confer with their people, and the conditions which might make necessary the withdrawal of Towne or his reten tion would be then better understood. When the conference broke up no conclusion had baen reached, the Popu lists and Silver men going back to their respective national committees with the understanding that the three commit tees should be renewed in the morning. Whatever the outcome as to the vice presidency, it was decided at the con ference that the parties work in har mony so far as possible in every state and congressional district. An advis ory committee of three members from each of the three parties was appointed and this committee, wherever possible, work to effect fusion on state and con gressional tickets. A meeting of the Silver Republican national committee was held immed iately after the close of the conference, and at the end of a brief discussion it was voted unanimously to place Adlai E. Stevenson in nomination for vice president and to co-operate in every way with the Democratic party for the success of the ticket. No opposition to this action was made by members of the committee, the debate being solely on the question as to the best time to take such action. It was finally decided that delay would result in no good and Stevenson was accordingly placed on the ticket, the committee having power to do this by action of the convention.

People HaTe Not Grasped Magni tude of Project. Work of Advertising Should be Commenced at Once. Mr. John E. Frost, formerly land com missioner of the Santa Fe, will undoubt edly be named as president of the Kan sas Exposition association, which will have the handling of the big semi-centennial celebration in 1904. Secretary F. D. Coburn, of the state board of agri culture, who was named for the place at the last meeting of the board of di rectors, and declined, stated today that under no circumstances would fce recon sider his action, at the same time an nouncing that he favored Mr. Frost for the place. When Mr. Coburn declined at the last meeting Mr. Frost was suggested for the executive office, but he refused to allow the suggestion to be carried out in-the hope that Mr. Coburn would fol low Governor Roosevelt's example. Mr. Coburn Is now acting as temporary president, but a permanent oflicer will likely be chosen at the next meeting of the directors. "I am too loyal to the project to think for a minute of accepting the office," said Mr. Coburn today. "It is a place of great prominence and trust, and the man who is placed there must be In a position to devote practically his entire attention to the work. There are a thou sand different ways in which he will have to employ his time and energy, and the work of the office here requires my exclusive attention. To my mind Mr. John E. Frost is the man for the place. He has the experience and acquaintance necessary, and is a man of ideas and superior ability. No better selection could be made. "I'm somewhat afraid," continued Mr. Coburn, "that the people generally have not yet grasped the magnitude of" this undertaking. Some, I dare say, think of it as celebration similar to our past fall festival. Such ideas are absurd when It is taken into considera tion that it is to be one of the big expo sitions of the century. At least a million dollars will be asked of congress, and several hundred thousand dollars from the state legislature.
