Santa Fe Through Traffic Sur
Since the Opening of the San
100 TO 200 CARS A DAT.
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
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

Improved System Being Put in Santa
Chas. Dorman, the representative of

The Columbian is supposed to be most
perfect combing all the good points
of the other systems. 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.

SHOT THE RAPIDS.
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
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."

OYERMYER ON STEYESSON.
Says He Will Strengthen the Ticket
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
"Will he strengthen the ticket in Kan
sas?" was asked.

Doubt About Ability of Water

NO DOUBT OF POWER.

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
Both Judge Garver and Mr. Austin say
there is no doubt that the property can
be condemned and purchased under such
"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
"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
"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
"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."

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.
