San Francisco Shippers Are Favoring the Kansas Boad. Good Fortune Due to Feeling Against Southern Pacific. Since the opening of the San Joaquin Valley line, the freight business over the Santa Fe into San Francisco has been surprisingly heavy. The freight department of the road reports that from 100 to 200 cars of stuff has been going into San Francisco from the east every day during much of the time, and the Santa Fe officials are consequently greatly pleased with the outlook. The feeling existing in California against the Southern Pacific company, which up to the present time has mo nopolized the railroad business in and out of San Francisco, is largely respon sible for the heavy shipments over the Santa Fe. San Francisco shippers bill freight east over the Santa Fe in pref erence to the Southern Pacific, and in shipments to them from the east re quire that the Santa Fe and not the Southern Pacific receive the business. The line has been open for freight traffic since May 15, and the freight earnings are proof of the splendid bus iness done. President Ripley of the Santa Fe is reported to have entered into an agree ment with the Oceanic Steamship com pany by which the closest traffic rela tions will in future be maintained be tween the two corporations. This gives the Santa Fe first class steamship con nections with all the principal ports of the Orient, and means that the Kansas road will become a great power In Oriental traffic. NEW CAR LIGHTS. Improved System Being Put in Santa Fe Cars. Chas.

This company was consolidated with all other axle light companies recently and the' axle light put in the market by this company was adopted at the standard. The Santa Fe will first equip all the cars which were formerly equipped with the electric lights. After this the ten new chair cars will be fitted with lights, and following this the rest of the equip ment will be fitted with the axle lights as fast as the material may be obtained. mr. coldwelxTresigns.

Peter Nissen Goes Through the Niagara Whirlpool in a Boat. Niagara Falls, N. Y July 10. Peter Nissen, of Chicago, or Mr. Bowser, as he styles himself, went through the whirlpool rapids of the Niagara river yesterday afternoon in the presence of about 10,000 persons in his craft, the Fool Killer. The boat was towed to a rock about a mile above the rapids and secured. The point was difficult to reach by officials from either the Amer ican or Canadian shores, who have been disposed to interfere with the much ad vertised adventure. Shortly after 3 o'clock Mr. Bowser was seen on his boat. A little later James LaBland pulled up in a row boat and towed the Fool Killer, with Bowser aboard, into the current. At 3:57 the start down the stream was ac tually commenced, but the fickle eddies kept the Fool Killer drifting about until 4:50, when she got into the whirl pool current and started for the final plunge. Passing under the cantilever, the boat took on the speed of an ex press train. Bowser threw his oar fax from him and waved his cap. The crowd saw the craft rise on the crest of a smooth wave and then dive into the leaping spray and disappear. The strange craft turned over and over like a top, rolling and plunging until it passed a bend in the river, and the most perilous part of the Journey had been passed. The buoyant craft kept on the crest of the waves until submerged again on the verge of the whirlpool. Shooting into the whirlpool the Fool Killer swung around and went down like a fishing bob, but rose again quick ly. For the next five minutes Bowser and his boat circled around the whirl pool. Shortly before 6 o'clock the Fool Killer was carried out to the edge of the rapids and a line was thrown by Bowser to a man on shore, who hauled him in. His first question was: "How is that for Bowser?" The Fool Killer is 20 feet long and four feet deep, and is made of two inch pine, with four air-tight compart ments. The keel weighs 1,250 pounds. Bowser warmed himself at a fire built on the shore and put on dry clothing, and appeared to be little the worse for his mad ride. "Had I known how bad the whirlpool rapids are I would never have attempt ed that trip." he said. "After I had passed through the first big waves I re alized that my hat had been washed off. Then some more waves came over me and I did not know where I was. I did not know what was going on until I came out in the whirlpool. During that brief time it seemed that a hundred hammers were pounding my head and my bot t. . I never turned over, but we were -or. our side or end several times; and each time I thought that I was a goner. If it had not been for the shoulder straps which I put on the last minute I would have been hurled to death. I was conscious of nothing except the fearful sensation of being overwhelmed with blows from every side. I was mighty cold and tired when I came out at the whirlpool. Three or four times my breath was nearly gone and when the water would open and I would get a -breath of air I could not see my steering apparatus. When I got into the rapids the water took com plete control of the boat and I simply clung on and tried to keep my breath in my body." WHO BOWSER IS. Chicago, July 10. "F. M. Bowser" is the Falls shooting alias of Peter Nis sen, who resides at 57S Francisco street, Chicago. Nissen is a Dane, 37 years of age, and until recently has acted as bookkeeper for Jessen & Ros berg, 126 North Union street. He has been a resident of Chicago tor seven teen years.

Unhealthy Kidneys Make Impure Blood. All the blood in your body passes through your kidneys once every three minutes. i ne Kidneys are your blood purifiers, they fil ter out the waste or impurities in the blood. If they are sick or out of order, they fail to do their work. Pains, aches and rheu matism come from ex cess of uric acid in the blood, due to neplected kidney trouble. Kidney trouble causes quick or unsteady heart beats, and makes one feel as though they had heart trouble, because the heart is over-working in pumping thick, kidney poisoned blood through veins and arteries. It used to be considered that only urinary troubles ware to be traced to the kidneys, but now modern science proves that nearly all constitutional diseases have their begin ning in kidney trouble. If you are sick you can make no mistake by first doctoring your kidneys. The mild and the extraordinary effect of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the great kidney remedy is soon realized. It stands the highest for its wonderful cures of the most distressing cases and is sold on Its merits by all druggists in fifty cent and one-dollar siz es.

David Overmyer Is of the opinion that the nomination of Adlai E. Stevenson for vice president will bring votes to the ticket in Kansas. "I think the choice of Mr. Stevenson was very wise," said Mr. Overmyer. "In the first place he. was twice candidate for congress from Illinois as a Green backer and never changed his views on the currency question and is a firm be liever in, the idea that the government should issu the currency and not the banks. He is a pronounced silver man and is therefore acceptable to our re form allies. In addition to this he is much loved and respected by all the people of Illinois and throughout the country. He is an excellent man and citizen. He is the friend of labor and organized labor is his friend. For years he has had the management of coal mines in Illinois and is the only man in that state who has never had trouble with his men. This Is because he is a good, wise and just man. His people own their own homes and he and they get along most admirably. When any little difference arises among them the whole matter is left to Mr. Stevenson and so great is their confidence in hirn that they never appeal from his decis ion. "Again he is a Kentuckian by birth and education and the whole south will warm up to him. Then he was vice pres ident during one term and made many friends and no enemies. He disagreed with Mr. Cleveland which was in his fa vor with people throughout the country and while this is true gold Democrats and mugwumps respect and like him. He is a candidate who will grow upon the country and in a very short time It will be understood by all that we made the very best selection that could be made." "Will he strengthen the ticket in Kan sas?" was asked. "He will strengthen the ticket In Kan sas. He is as strong as Towne and much stronger than any other man. Though always a Democrat he has been so much in favor with the reform ele ment that he was very prominently mentioned as a candidate for vice presi dent at Sioux Falls." Cotton Mills Olose.

Doubt About Ability of Water Co. to Transfer. Attorneys GarYer and Austin Say City Should Condemn. NO DOUBT OF POWER. Court Would Tlien Appoint the Appraisers. Dangers of Present Plan For Fixing the Yalue. Judge T. F. Garver, chairman of the legal committee of the Commercial club, and Mr. Edwin A. Austin, the Topeka at torney, who has particularly interested himself In the water works question, be lieve that the present water works plant should be acquired by the city by condem nation proceedings. Mr. Austin is also a member of the committee. Judge Garver is of the opinion that it would be satisfactory to proceed under the proposed agreement provided, the ap praisers were appointed beforehand and were satisfactory to the city officials. Otherwise he is in favor of commencing condemnation proceedings. Mr. Austin thinks such an agreement as proposed can lead at the most to simplv a friendly condemnation, on the theory that the wa ter works company can't "deliver . the goods." Both Judge Garver and Mr. Austin say there is no doubt that the property can be condemned and purchased under such proceedings. "I think the proposed agreement is all right, provided the city knows who is to act as appraisers," said Judge Garver. "I would be opposed to the city going into the matter blindly, which it would if it was left to the water company to appoint an appraiser .and the two appointed to name a third. A controversy would prob ably result between the appointee of the city and the appointee of the water com pany, and the third appraiser, who I un derstand Is to be a hydraulic engineer, would likely side with the water company. There is no question in my mind that the water plant can be taken in under con demnation proceedings. Both the stat utes of 1891 and 1897 cover the matter. The appraisers would then be appointed by the court, and their report would be subject to the approval of the court. I think all the attorneys Interested in the matter agree that the franchise and contract ex pire in September, 19ol, but under the Law condemnation proceedings could be com menced now. "Topeka doesn't want two water plants and the litigation that would be liable to ensue. Any way out of the difficulty Is much better than for the city to go ahead and construct a new plant. This especial ly is true when it Is considered that the present plant can be acquired by condem nation." "In view of the fact that the water works people have said the city was not attempting to deal fairly with them." said Mr. Austin, "the meeting between Presi dent Street and the city authorities was a good thing. I think very little of the pro posed agreement, because I don't believe the water company can deliver the goods. There are hundrds of bonds scattered broadcast, and as the agreement is not a legal matter, the signatures of the hold ers of every one of the bonds would have to be secured. The bonds are made out to 'bearer,' and it would be next to impossl bleto secure the signature of every holder. Under condemnation proceedings the court could 'advertise out' all the bonds that were not secured, and for this rea son the entire number of signatures would not be necessary for the transfer of the property. "The only good the agreement can do that I can see is to result in a friendly condemnation. Representatives of the city and the water works company, with an outside party, might get together and agree on certain terms for the condemna tion of the property. They could then go into court and file a petition, and the property would be condemned and sold to the city under the provisions of their agreement. "That the property can be acquired by condemnation there is absolutely no ques tion. However, in the first place, the cir cuit court of .the United States would have to be applied to for an order making the receiver a party to such proceeding, or for an alternative order, discharging the property from his custody. The prop erty was- sold May, 1896, to Chas. F. Street and the sale confirmed in September, 1896: a deed was ordered to be executed to him and it was so executed and recorded; he, later, executed a deed to The Topeka Water Company of New Jersey, which has since mortgaged the property and franchises to secure an enormous new bond issue. Yet a receiver is continued in possession, reporting the rentals col lected by him and turning them over un der orders of the court to the water com pany of New Jersey. There is no further use "for a receiver of the property than for a fifth wheel to a wagon. Courtesy to the tribunal, however, requires that this state of affairs be brought to the attention of Judge Hook, in a petition with an alter native prayer for his discharge from pos session of the property, or leave to sue him in condemnation proceedings." President Diaz He-elected. City of Mexico, July 10. The electoral colleges met in the chief towns and cities all over the republic yesterday and cast their votes for president.

Plans for. the Democratic national campaign of 1900 were outlined and practically agreed upon today at a protracted conference between the leaders of the party. The plan includes the appointment of a cam paign committee as agreed upon be tween representatives of the Democra tic, Sliver Republican and Populist parties at Kansas City. This commit tee will include members of all three parties and perhaps also Democrats not members of the national committee, but who are prominent in the councils of the party. This committee will, it is said, have charge in a measure of the principal working of the campaign and will work for fusion on state and con gressional tickets wherever possible. The press and executive committee, it is expected with one or two exceptions will be the same as last year. The per sonnel of all the committees was left in the hands of Chairman Jones. The question of national headquarters was also left in his hands. It was stated that Chicago would be probably select ed. Mr. Bryan said that he had made no plans as to the part he would take in tbe campaign and would not do so until he had conferred further with the party leaders. The subject was dis cussed at the meeting, as well as the amount of campaign work to be done by Mr. Stevenson, and although this feature will not be fully decided upon until after formal notification of their nomination has been given Mr. Bryan and Mr. Stevenson, which will prob ably not be for several weeks. Commit teeman Johnson of Kansas stated after the meeting that an understanding ex ists that Mr. Bryan will not tour as he did in the campaign in 1S96. but will make trips from time to time to the larger centers of population, remaining in Lincoln- a great deal of the time. Many visitors are expected here during the campaign, and Lincoln will in a way be a central point In the campaign. Mr. Towne may not announce his de cision In regard to the vice presidential nomination for several days, although several Populist leaders In the city stated that he might announce his with drawal to the Populist executive com mittee at once. Democratic leaders, however, state that the whole question has been postponed until after the middle-of-the-road state Populist' con vention to be held at Grand Island, Neb., July 20. The attitude that will be taken by that wing of the Populists and the strength developed by them will, It fs said, be closely observed as a cri terion in other Populist states, and should no serious deflection from the regular Populists on account of Mr. Towne's defeat In the Democratic con vention be noticed, a conference with the Populist leaders will then be held, at which time it is expected Mr. Towne's withdrawal will be announced. Senator Jones and Committeemen Stone, Campau and Johnson left for Chicago last night, where they expect to meet Congressman Richardson of Ten nessee, permanent chairman of the Democratic national convention and discuss the make-up of the various committees prior to their announce ment. True L. Norrls of New Hamp shire will, it is stated, take the place of Alex. Troup on the press and Norman E. Mack the place of Frank Campbell on the executive committee. Neville Renominated.
