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.

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,"

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.

MING WHEAT.
Railroads Face to Face With a
Serious Problem.
Freight Equipment Being In
creased as Fast as Possible.
100,000 BOX CARS.
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.

STREEflGREES.
Water Works Controversy is
Nearly Adjusted.
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.

Condition.
Chicago, July 7. A heavy rain storm

only temporary relief, as hot weather is
predicted again for today. The deaths
yesterday due to the heat were twelve,
while the prostrations numbered twenty.

OTIS SEES ROOT.
Discuss Chinese Situation and How
Many Troops Can be Spared.
Washington, July 7--Gen. 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.

FAILEDTO WORK.
A Fire Extinguisher Which, Would
Not Extinguish.
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.

tan Manufacturing company, was thrown
from a wagon at the corner of Third and
Kansas avenue about noon today and

Swift & Holliday Drug company, when
he suddenly turned to the right and made
straight for the ,door of the building.
When he struck the sidewalk he slipped
and fell, and was caught before he could
regain his feet.
Mr. Cole lives at the Chief Hotel on
Kansas avenue. It la feared that his brain
is seriously injured.
