TOPEKA STATE JOURNAL, SATURDAY EVENING, JULY 7. 1900.
GUMPTION. JNE does not have properly cheated. Persons of gumption are using Ivory Soap, women who have trusted themselves too near the precipice of false economy and who can now appreciate the true econo my in a soap made of pure vegetable oils and other high-ck.ss ingredients, but made in such quantity as to brin'g the price within the reach of the very poorest family. Indeed it is the very poor who most need it, for they can least afford the extravagance of common soap. COP T S T 1t BV THf MOOTED FilDE BY SIDE. TUcKxa.' .ey and Roosevelt Stand at the President's Home. Canton. Ohio, July 7. The home city of the president yesterday accorded to his colleague on the Republican national ticket an ovation almost unprecedented even in Canton. It would be hard to eay 'whether citizens of Canton ever voiced a more demonstrative welcome to President McKinley or to Governor Roosevelt, but it may be said with truth that Canton did not discriminate In the demonstration, the first occasion on which the Republican candidates for president and vice president per sonally met since the Philadelphia con vention. Governor Roosevelt arrived in Canton over the Valley road at half-past five. His only companions from Cleveland to Canton were the newspaper men who have accompanied him on his long trip to Oklahoma. As the governor alighted from the train whistles blew and can non boomed and an immense crowd gathered about the station and gave him a mighty cheer of welcome. The president's secretary, Geo. B. Corteiyou, was the first person to meet him as he stepped from the platform. Carriages were in waiting. All along the line from the station to tne Mottiniey resi dence nearly a mile, the streets were lined with people, and Governor Roose velt was kept busy bowing his ac knowledgments to the acclaims of the people of Canton. A brass band giving forth patriotic airs led the procession. The carriage in which Governor Roose velt rode was surrounded with small boys shouting at the highest pitch of their voices, and by bicyclists, who seemed anxious to feast their eyes on the sight of the rough rider. The yard of the McKinley residence and the streets adjacent were literally packed with humanity when the governor alighted from his carriage and walked briskly toward the house. Then a tre mendous cheer burst forth from the as sembled multitude. President McKinley was standing on the porch waiting with outstretched hands to greet his associ ate on the national ticket. When they shook hands the scene was Inspiring indeed. The assemblage was clamorous for speeches, and when some thing like quiet was restored the presi dent introduced Governor Roosevelt in the following words: "I cannot express the pleasure it has given me to see the enthusiastic wel come my fellow citizens have given to Governor Roosevelt and I now have the pleasure of presenting him to you." The governor spoke but a few words, but his voice rang clear and loud and the great crowd had no difficulty in bearing him. He said: "My feilow citizens: I thank you most cordially for the way you have come forward to greet me. I know that none Many people are afraid of ghosts. Few people are afraid of germs. Yet the ghost is a lancy and the germ is a fact. If the germ could be magnified to a size equal to its terrors it would appear more ter rible than any hre- breathing dragon. Germs can't be avoided. They are in the air we breathe, the water we drink. The srerm can only pros per when the condition of the system gives it free scope to establish itself and develop. When there is a deficiency of vital force, languor, restlessness, a sal low cheek, a hollow eye. when the appetite is poor and the sleep is broken, it is time to guard against the germ. You can fortify the body against all germs by the use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. It increases the vital power, cleanses the system of clogging impurities, enriches the blood, puts the stomach and organs of digestion and nutrition in working condition, so that the germ finds no weak or tainted spot in which to breed. " Golden ilcdi crd Discovery" contains no alcohol, Mrhisky or other intoxicant. " Your kimlntss to me I can never roraret," writes Mrs. Josie E. Clark, of Enterprise, Shelby Co., Mo. "I had despaired of ever fret ting well. I had been in bed health for twelve vears.

CINCINNATI of you, least of all my old comrades here, will grudge my saying that I thank particularly those who wear the buttons that show they fought in the great war. (Applause). "I cannot say how I appreciate this, coming as it does from the townsmen of the president who is now in a peculiar sense my leader and whom I shall fol low and support with every ounce of strength that there is in me, and, at least, there is to be said for our side that we know what we believe. In Kan sas City they have had a little difficulty in finding out what they believe. I see by the papers that they had some diffi culty, extending finally to a vote of 27 to 25, in putting in free silver. Now we believe with all our faith in a dollar worth a hundred cents. Apparently they have 62 per cent of faith in a 48 cent dollar. I do not intend to do more this afternoon than again to thank you most cordially, and to say that I appre ciate what this greeting means, coming as it does from the home of the presi dent. "I shall try to show myself not wholly unworthy of the way you have rhet me this afternoon." The president then retired into the house, but the crowd was not satis fied. The demands for McKinley were so persistent that at length he stepped out again upon the porch. A great cheer went up, which he silenced with a wave of his hand. "I only appear," said the president, "that I may say to you that I am go ing to be with you most of the sum mer." Cheers and laughter followed this femark of the president, and the crowd soon after broke up. At dinner the only guests at the McKinley resi dence besides the regular household were Governor Roosevelt and Judge and Airs. Day. President McKinley and Governor Roosevelt were in conference most of the evening, but nothing could be learned of the matters discussed. The governor left for New York at 10:50. "I am going direct to Oyster Bay to morrow afternoon," he said, "and we ate going to have some fireworks, a sort of belated Fourth of July for the children." Governor Roosevelt refused to discuss the Kansas City platform or the can didates. AUCTION TODAY. If You "Want a House You Can Get One Cheap This Afternoon. Tlie auction of the houses east of the Santa F"e car shops this afternoon marks the first step toward the new Santa Fe shop improvements. Almost as soon as the buildings are removed, the Santa Fe company will be ready to start work on the combined blacksmith shop and frog factory. The plans, which are being made under the direction of Superintendent of Machinery John Player, will be completed in a few days and sent to General Man ager Mudge and Vice President Barr for approval. The blacksmith shop and frog factory will be 40 feet long and 80 feet wide. It will probably be built of steel, although this is to be definitely passed upon by Mr. Barr. Yhether the building wili be con structed by contract or by the Santa Fe company is a point that has not yet been settled. AGAINST CHAMBERLAIN. Supreme Court Remands Topeka Broker Case For Trial. The supreme court today denied the writ of habeas corpus by which W. L. Chamberlain sought release from the proceedings charging him with embez zlement instituted by J. B. Furry. The latter brought suit against Chamber lain, who runs a bucket shop, charging that between J1.100 and $1,200 deposited by Furry for the purchase of railroad stocks had been converted by Chamber lain to his private use. . The suits began in the city court, and Judge McCabe bound Chamberlain over to the district court. From this Judg ment he appealed by an application for a writ of habfas corpus. The court holds that the issues are not determinable in a habeas corpus proceeding ard for this reason the court is unable to determine the guilt or in nocence of Chamberlain. The court states, however, that there is much evi dence in the case to sustain the conten tion of Chamberlain, which is that iTurry did not expect the delivery of stocks, "that it was a mere gambling transaction, bucket shopping." How ever, the court declines to pass -i the merits of the case In this proceed ing and refuses the writ. A Good Cough Medicine.

Number Needed to Transport the Wheat. Require a Train 800 Miles Long to Haul Wheat Crop. What will be the largest wheat crop Kansas has ever grown Is being har vested. The railroads are , making ex tensive preparations to handle the crop. The Rock Island by August 15 will have built 2,500 new boxcars which will go to swell the equipment and be used in the work of transporting the Immense wheat crop to the markets. Other roads have been just as busy but it Is anticipated that with all the extra equipment the roads will experi ence great difficulty in handling the grain which will be offered them for transportation. The wheat crop for this year In Kan sas is estimated at least a hundred mil lion bushels. The average freight car Is 40 feet long. To handle this crop it will be necessary to use a hundred thousand cars. The magnitude of the crop may be clearly understood when it is known that If it were all loaded and made in one train the string of boxcars would reach a distance of over 800 miles, or from Topeka to Salt Lake City, or twice across the state of Kansas, or about 15 times the distance from Topeka to Kan sas City. A train load consists of about 23 car loads. Figuring a train load at this number there would be something over 4.000 train loads. Should this be divided up evenly between the four roads and each road ran five wheat trains per day it would take. 250 days for the four roads to get this crop out of the state. Should the weather prove as favorable to the corn crop until the crop is made, as it has up till this time, this year's crop will equal if not exceed last year's crop. That was over two hundred mil lion bushels. Should the railroads each haul five train loads of corn every day, about 600 days would be required to handle the corn. So it may readily be seen that the railroads are face to face with a serious problem when it comes to planning for the movement of grain. Kansas has this year the largest crop in her history. The largest wheat crop previous to this year was in 1S92 when something over 74 million bushels were raised. The next largest crop was in 1S?8 when the amount was over 60 mil lion bushels. In 1892 the value of the crop was estimated at $40,691,762.03 and in 1898 at $32,937,004.28. This year if the prices remain up, and they have every prospect of doing so, the value of the wheat crop will be something like from tO to 100 million dollars. Last year the state of Kansas ranked fifth in the amount of Wheat raised but it is quite probable that when the re turns are in this year that it will be found that Kansas will be found at the top of the column. Kansas has 105 counties. Fifty per cent of the wheat will be from 15 of these counties. They are Sumner, Bar ton, McPherson, Rice, Rush, Pawnee, Russell. Sedgwick, Salina, Stafford, Reno, Mitchell, Ellsworth and Harper. Wheat has not been damaged to any extent this year by insects. A new bug has been discovered In the wheat but it has done no harm as, yet. SUNDAY AT THE CHURCHES North Topeka Baptist church, corner Laurent and Harrison streets. Rev. W. B.

There Is & prospect that the -water question has ac last been put on the road to a speedy solution. The water committee, composed of Councilmen Hughes, Warner and Chaney, met with President Street and Manager O'Neal of the Topeka Water company Friday afternoon, and after talking over the matter of buying the plant, Mr. Street dictated the following: "Topeka, July 6, 1900, "At a meeting of the water committee of the city of Topeka and the president and manager of the Topeka Water company, held at the office of the mayor, to confer upon the subject of the sale of the plant of the Topeka Water company to the city of Topeka, it was suggested that the city of To peka should nominate a competent hydraulic engineer to meet a competent hydraulic engineer to be selected by the water company for the purpose of as certaining the fair and equitable value of the property of the Topeka Water company. "In event the engineers being unable to agree upon a price it was suggested that they be authorized to select the third engineer -after having first noti fied and counseled with the officers of the city of Topeka and the officers of the water" company, the three engineers to then make a report of their findings. It is understood that this suggestion is not binding upon the waterworks committee until it has been approved by the council, and it Is not binding upon the water company until it has been approved by the board of direct ors, which approval or disapproval shall be made by both parties not later than August 1. "If a price is agreed upon the prop erty shall be conveyed to the city of Topeka as soon thereafter as the eity of Topeka can negotiate its bonds and the Topeka Water company can con vey title." This was acceptable to the water works committee. The matter was not definitely settled, however, and a meet ing was appointed for this morning at 10:30. There was a hitch at this meet ing, and after discussing Some changes in the appointment of appraisers the meeting adjourned to meet again at 1:30. Mr. Street was not satisfied with the suggestion in regard to the appoint ment of the appraisers and suggested that the city choose a number of men from which the water company would select one and the w-ater company would select a number r.f men and the city would select one. He also wanted the appraisers to be altogether dis interested. This was not agreed to, as it would bar every man in Shawnee county. The original suggestion made by President Street last night is the one the committee desire to have agreed upon ,and it is probable that it will be done, as it is fair to both the city and the water company. STREET AGREES. Later1 The waterworks "committee and President Street of the water com pany came to an understanding at the meeting this afternoon. The agreement is the same as the one proposed last night by Mr. Street, except that the Word "ascertaining" is eliminated and "making a disinterested report as to" is inserted. The agreement is tentative and is more to show good faith than for prac tical working. It is acceptable to both parties, as both seem anxious to settle the question. GO LIKE JEIOT CAKES. Many Bidders For Houses on Santa Fe Site. The sale of the houses on the Santa Fe shop extension site was commenced at 2 o'clock this afternoon by Auctioneer John Ashbaugh, who told the people how the Commercial club is working to build up the city. He admonished those present not to bid as if they were bidding on furniture. The first house was a five-room cot tage, which had been the property of Isabel McGiffen. It was started at $100. "Going at $100," sang out Ashbaugh. "Make it $125," shouted some one. "Bid up; bid up," shouted Ashbaugh. "Don't be so backward about bidding in a good cause." The house was finally knocked down to F. Fensky for $160. The second house was a two-room cottage on the same property. It was Sold to M. Heery for $95. 12 DIE OF HEAT.

Otis arrived in Washington today from his home in Rochester, N. T., in answer to - tele graphic summones from the war de partment. He called immediately upon Secretary Root. The general spent the entire morning in close conference with Secretary Root, Gen. Miles and Adjutant General Corbin. ' In answer to an in quiry as to the nature of his business, he referred all questioners to the secre tary of war, but the latter declined to make any statement on the subject. It is supposed that the general has been called to Washington to inform the au thorities as to the military situation in the Philippines With special relation to possibility of calling on the troops there ofr further reinforcements for the Uni ted States forces in China. It is known that General MacArthur is reluctant to spare any more troops than the one regiment already taken from him, and in view of the delay of two months that would occur before any adequate num ber of soldiers could be gotten to China directly from the United States, it may be decided that the emergency warrants a change in policy in the Philippines, so as to secure the needed troops for China by a temporary contraction of military force of occupation.

The representative of a fire extin guisher manufacturing company gave an exhibition on the state house lawn this morning with a view to having the fire extinguisher adopted by the executive council for use in the state house. A large box was built and covered with oil and tar. The match was touched to it and immediately the wood was in flames. The fire spread and soon the flames were leaping from ten to fifteen feet in the air. The fire was allowed to gain a good headway before an attempt was made to extinguish it. The chemicals, a preparation which looks like fine sand, put out the flames all rifrht. but the embers refused to quit burning. The demonstrator and his assistants then got busy with a hatchet and knives and hacked and whitted the embers off the boards. About two hundred persons witnessed the exhibition. OPENS AUGUST 1.
