AUDITORIUM KICKS
Many Changes Are Now Being
Suggested.
Objection Even Offered to Kind
of Sandpaper Used.
GREAT FUSS IS MADE.
Mr. Weber's Artistic Eye is Not
Satisfied.
Alterations to Be Considered
Next Week.
For some time everyone seemed to be
satisfied with the new city hall and
auditorium, but recently complaints
have been made concerning one point
and another. The musical people ' be
gan with a complaint concerning the
balcony over the stage which they want
removed on account of its interference
with a large chorus and because they
consider it detrimental to the acoustics.
Last night Major Anderson, M. C.
Holman and L. M. Wood were present
to explain the position of the musical
people. There was a disposition on the
part of the council to grant their re
quest but some of the members Insisted
that a narrow passage be left In order
that the gallery would be continuous.
Mr. Holland who was present said that
he believed these changes could be made
without additional cost and that he
would consider the matter and make a
report of it Monday night.
Some of the councilmen favored the
taking out of the two rooms on the
ground floor In front of the auditorium
in order to make a larger lobby. Mr.
Holland opposed this on the ground that
the removal of the partition would spoil
the symmetry of the auditorium. He
said that he believed that a lobby might
be provided fcr by moving the partitions
back and making the rooms narrower.
He will report on this and the gallery at
the meeting Monday night.
Another complaint in regard to the
building was made by Councilman
Weber whose artistic" eye was dis
pleased with "top" on the northeast cor
ner of the auditorium. He said it had
an unfinished appearance as compared
with the northwest corner. He intro
duced a resolution to have it changed
which was referred to the committee on
building.
Councilman Hughes complained that
the paint, varnish and sandpaper used
by the painters on the new auditorium
was not according to specifications
called for as certain brands were named
and these brands were not being used.
He implied that the paint, varnish and
sandpaper were of an inferior quality
to that called for and said that the city
engineer, whom Hughes does not love
as a brother, was not doing his duty by
allowing a change to be made in the
materials. This started a general de
bate, during which the tierce colonel
got rattled as usual and made the re
mark that there was not a contractor
in the world who used better material
In a job than the specifications called
for. He was very eloquent.
He was promptly called down by May
or Drew, who is a contractor, with the
statement he had used better material
on many contracts than was called for
in the specifications.
Councilman Klliott also resented Mr.
Hughes' remark and informed him that
there were honest contractors as well as
honest coal dealers. Mr. Hughes finally
got the floor and disclaimed any inten
tion of makinjf such a sweeping asser
tion. City Engineer Wise stated that he had
examined the material used on the build
ing and declared it was just aa good as
that called for In the contract. He fur
ther called the attention of Mr. Hughes
to the instructions he had received from
the council which were to the effect that
he was to see that the material was as
good or better than that called for. Mr.
Wise concluded his remarks with the
statement that he knew perfectly well
why the trouble was being made con
cerning the paint and who was at the
bottom of it and he looked straight at
Col. Hughes, who is playing to the gal
leries' so that he may be made mayor.
Burns. the contractor, had explained that
he had changed the material because he
could not get proper prices on the kind
specified.
Mr. Mergan ridiculed the idea that
the difference in the brand of sand paper
used would make any difference in the
work. Finally a resolution was adopted
instructing the city engineer to have the
contractors paint and varnish the city
building according to contract.
MINOR MATTERS.
Another portion of the new annexa
tion ordinance was read and adopted but
on account of its great length it was not
all presented the balance being held over
until Monday night.
The Kistler street ordinance was pass
ed, which orders that a special assess
ment shall be made for the opening of
that street in North Topeka.
R. M. Spivey, James Gillete and A. P.
Benson were appointed appraisers for
the following paving: Fillmore street
between Sixth and . Tenth and Tyler
street between Fourth and Fifth, the
estimates, and specifications for
that paving having been adopted. The
clerk was instructed to advertise for
bids for the paving and a special meet
ing of the council will be held Thursday
night. August 16, to let the contracts.
The report of the appraisers for the
opening of Parkdale street between
Fifth and Sixth streets were rejected be
cause Mrs. Boyd appeared before the
council and stated that such action
would work a great hardship to her.
It seems Impossible to locate the city
scales without receiving objecting peti
tions. When it was decided to move the
scales to Fifth street back of the city
prison a petition signed by 35 tax pay
ers was presented protesting against it
and the council agreed to put them some
other place. They finally decided the lot
north of the city prison and last night
another petition was received objecting
to the new location. It was referred to a
committee.

Only Automobile in Topeka,
Terry
"Made In Topeka, Kansas, V. S. A."
Is the story of the only automobile In
Topeka. It was built by Terry Stafford,
who has a little shop on East Fifth
street.
The entire machine was planned and
constructed by Stafford, who has
seen but one automobile and that was
of the storage battery type, while the
one he constructed is propelled by a
compound gasoline engine of seven
horse power. It is his own model and
every part of it except rubber tires was
made in Topeka, The automobile has
made several successful trips to Silver
Lake, through the sand, and to Ross
ville. over hills as steep and rough as
can be found in this part of the state.
And the trip was made in four hours
each way without trouble.
From the postofflce to Pauline, then
east to the Berryton cross roads and
then to Topeka is a little more than
nineteen and three-quarter miles, and
Mr. Stafford has made the trip with the
automobile in one hour and twenty-one
minutes carrying two people. Not a
hill hits been found that the machine
did not climb or a sandy road that
checked its movement.
The machine has a speed from four to
twenty-five miles an hour. It can be
geared to a speed of fifty miles an hour,
but that is too much like a flying ma
chine. On the pavement the machine
runs at twenty-five miles an hour as
smoothly as a bicycle and those riding
in the wagon do not appreciate how
fast thev are going, but the neckties of
the passengers stand straight out be
hind like a pennarit and felt hat rims lie
flat. On the country roads humming
along at a twenty-five mile gait is
sport. After a person has taken a ride
in the automobile they cease to wonder
Sundav from a week's visit in Chicaeo.

"Don't have to feed and curry it, do

"Can you make one to plow corn?"
"Is it afraid of the cars?"
On the Pauline-Berryton trip the
"auto" met a carriage. The horse shied.
The man pulled the horse to the side of
the road near a hedge fence that had
just been trimmed. The woman and
children were frightened as the horse
at the automobile and Jumped out. The
woman had her shoes off and when she
landed on the hedge cuttings she ex
ecuted a war dance that frightened the
horse worse than the "auto."
A man driving a pair of horses to a
farm wagon tried to keep his team in

edge of the road. The "auto" was
stopped. The man was punching his
horses with a short stick. He had to
lean over to hit them.

in a western town is the excitement
when the fire bells ring, and the women
drop dishpan and baby, and rush along
the streets, almost keeping time with
the engine. Atchison has no auditorium
like Topeka, but the thrilling sound of
a fire bell still moves the town to excite
ment." ad way's

APRICOT PITS IN ARTS.
TFrom the California Fruit Grower.
The value of apricot pits is being
commercially demonstrated this season.
Time was, and not long ago, when the
humble pit was a waste product, a
valueless something that was spurned
as being ever in the way. Later it was
dignified with a value; it commanded
$5 a ton to be used aa fuel under the
boilers where steam power was gener
ated. It burned well and made a de
sirable fuel. Now the uses to which
the erstwhile despised pit is put are
many. The demand is running ahead
of the supply, and its value Is contin
ually increasing. It Is made to yield up
Its contents of marketable poison
pruasic acid; it gives a very desirable
quality of "almond oil;" It enters
largely into the manufacture of candy
In places, Germany, for instances; it
is even said to be useful in the fabrica
tion of baking powder. These are some
of the pit's possibilities. There are
others.
The price of apricot pits started this
season at $5 a ton, and has now reach
ed $7.50. A San Francisco house has
contracted with the California Fruit
Canners' association for all the apricot
pits that may be saved in this season's
operations.
We are informed that a merchant in
this city Is willing to pay J9 a ton for
clean, dry apricot pits, delivered. Last
year about 500 tons of uncracked pits
were shipped by sailing vessel to Ger
many, and it is estimated that fully
1,000 tons will be exported to that coun
try this season. The Golden Gate Fruit
Packing company has been experiment
ing with pits and finds that one pound
of kernels is about the average from
twenty-four pounds of pita The ker
nels are assorted and shipped east.
Those who are handling apricots
should save the pits. Spread them to
dry, and when this is thoroughly done
stock them, and there will be no diffi
culty in finding a market for th-m.
Though apricot kernels are used after
treatment in the manufacture of candy,
the eating of them as they come from
the pit or stone Is not advised.
CARRIED HIS SEVERED ARM
From the New York Statfi.
Albert Dawson, 16 years old, of 301
West One Hundred and Forty-sixth
street visited his aunt, Mrs. Lottie Ben
edict of 622 East One Hundred and
Thirty-seventh street last night. On his
way home he tried to run across the
tracks of the New York, New Haven
and Hartford railroad at Willow ave
nue In front of a freight train. He was
knocked down and the train cut off his
left arm juet above the elbow.
Young Dawson picked up the arm
that had been cut off and walked to the
switch tower, 1,000 yards or more away.
There he called to Towerman Blake and
told him what had happened. Blake
tried to telephone for an ambulance,
but the wires were out of order on ac
count of the storm. Then he tried to
telegraph, with no better Success. So
he put the boy on a special engine and
sent him to the West One Hundred and
Twehty-firth street police station, where
an ambulance was summoned from
Harlem hospital. When Dr. Blackmar
responded the boy waa weak from loss
of blood. The- doctor pulled a pair of
scissors out of his medicine case and
began to cut away the boy's sleeve so
that he could get at the arm.
"Don't cut any more of my arm off
with those scissors, doctor," said the
boy, trying to smile. "I've lost as much
of my arm as I care to."
He didn't lose consciousness while his
arm was dressed. The lad was taken
to the hospital.
