uOnSTERPlCtl!C. Seren Thousand People Visit Martin's Hill. Delightful Outing For People of Topeka. EYESTS OF THE DAY. Entertainment Was as Tailed as the Picnickers The Small Boj Got Into Trouble as L'sual Seven thousand people visited Martin's Hill Saturday to enjoy the picnic pro vided them by sixteen of Topeka's most enterprising and progressive men. The members of. to- committee who had charge of the picnic were: Edward .Wilder, T. J. Anderson. C. J. Drew. P. I. 'Bonebrake. J- B. Larimer. V. H. Davis. C. J. D.;viin, Harold T. Chase. S. H. Kown. F. F. MacL.er.nan, W. M. David son, C. H. Netteis, Chas. D. V elen, Ar thur Capper. Clad Hamilton and Deii Kizer. por weeks they have been doing all in their power to' make the picnic, as Hoyt would express it. a -bowling success.' An 1 thev surcfe d"d. The dav was ali that could be asl for a warm autumn afternoon with the leaves all Just turning to gold and tne grass still green. At about half-past twelve s-aturday the people began to ccr.grtgate at the Keck Island de-ret. From that time on th-v came thick and fast and by or.e o'clock, the taue for the rguiar west bound Rock Island passenger train, the depot platform was thronged with peo-. pie. Aft r the lr-avir.gr of this train the ex cursion train consisting of fourteen coaches of both the ianta Fe and Roc Scene at the Pavilion Island roads behind Rock Island engine No. -54 backed down to the depot. By this time the crowd had increased greatly. The depot platform from Kan sas avenue to Jackson stieet was crowd ed. From Jackson street to Van Buren the crowd had extended and. lined up along the track, numbered almost as many as those on the platform. Promptly at 1:30 the train backed onto the track in front of the depot. About half the cars were already tilled with small beys who had the forethought to hunt up the train and enter while it was standing in the yards. The reception committee, the members r f the Topeka city troop, the Rock Is land officials and the police were on -.and to direct the people and be present should any trouble occur1. The men stationed themselves at the entrances to the train to prevent the crowd from stampeding and injuring the weaker ones. The people made a dash for the steps to the cars as soon as the train came to a standstill and the plan f f collating the tickets was abandoned. The people pushed and surged and in live minutes the train was tilled. AX INTERESTING "DETECTIVE." An amusing incident which attracted considerable attention and no littie com ment was the actions of an amateur private detective in his efforts to pre serve order and k--p the crowd from en tering the train too fist. He p-n-h-j himself lie t ween the rail ings of the platforms of two cars and shouted out orders to the crowd and pushed young men here and there telling them, w hat they must do. When questioned as to his right to be f! authoritative he turned back his coat displaying a badge sent out by some Chicago detective agency which any one may join by s-nding a dollar for a year ly subscription to their official paper, lie also L-itimei that he was working tinder the direction of the chief cf police .f Kansas City. In connection with his help in handling the crowd Saturday he was on the lookout for a bold bad man who had era' ked a safe in one of the suburbs of Kansas City. The amateur was in charge of the first train going out to the "Hid" and spent the rest of theaf lernoon at the scene of the picnic in watching with his eagle eye for any attempt at picking pockets. He was prepared at any time to make an arrest as he carrier a bis revolver and a dirk that would have done credit to a pirate of the clden days. Promptly at 1:4 the train in charge of Conductor W. G. Todd. Engineer Matt Rogers. Fireman Chas. Hiidebrand and Brakemen H. I. Matthews. J. Woifrev and J. C. Todd ieft the depot and made the trip to the "Hili " in about fifteen minutes. The fourteen coaches were crowded, most of the seats holding 'three persons and others crowded in between the seats and aisles. and it was with dirfi tuity that the engine started the train. The officials experienced their greatest difficulty with the small boys who have not yet 1-arn-l the value of property ni who climbed In and out w indows be cause tt would take ton long to bv way of the door, and with the boys run ning alor.g on tops of tne cars WENT FoR THE RIDE. Or.e woman of much avoirdupois went r ut on the first train and when the "Hill" was reached, upon being asked if she would get out answered in the negative and went back to town. This was re peated during each of the three tHn The railroad officials were also bothc-reda great deal by the boys who did this same thing, taking up space which could have teen occupied to a better advantage ty older peopie. At the grounds groups of pretty school piris could be seen playing at "crack the whip." "drop the handkerchief.1' "ring around the rosie" and other games of a similar nature. Additions were made to these groups as acquaintances coming on the later trains found their way tp the pasture land at the top of the hiii. Starting up the hill the people were Surprised at the distance. Many were the exclamations cf surprise and delight as new features were discovered. "I never knew there was a place so beautiful sc near Topeka." were the- expressions heard on every hand. Part way up the west road a dead tree had fallen part ly over the mad which made the scene t-em the mure real. A prominent business man said to Mr. Wilder Saturday forenoon that he would he willing to wager that not a hundred ltifk uouii go to the picnic. Iater in til- afternoon it was the pleasure of Mr. Wil ier to help this same gentleman from the train. And with & gleam of mirth in his eye Mr. Wilder asked the P. B. M- if he wasn't giad he did not piace any money on the proposition. Over one hundred people were there in carriage?, psesitiea the carriages a great many people lode out on waeels. THE RUBBER BALL. FIEND. The rubber ball fiend was present as was also the cheap Jewelry' vender. The rubber balls made quite a "hit." It is strange but a. fact that the rubber balls are friend makers. Perhaps more ae quairitnces are made by the throwing of thi rubber come-back balls than are made in any other way. Jackson's military band was on the grounds and played during the after noon. The early part was spent under the pavilion tent. I-ater the band formed in line and started a parade around over the grounds to get the people started aiMund to se-e all there was Ur be seen. A large mob of small boys of course was in their train. After marching for some distance an orchard was spied by one of the gang. He told the good news to his comrade, and then to others, and immediately there was a race to see who should reach the orchard first. They all arrived in a bunch, but the report of a blank cartridge fired by the owner of the orchard was enough to causa a stam pede in the other direction. Two colored girls followed the band and did a cake walk, to the amusement of all who saw them. Parties of girls danced quadrilles and other dances on the green sward to the music of the band. A football game was scheduled as one of the features of the afternoon. The game was between the Low man Hill "Tumblers" and the "Shawnees." After considerable trouble in rinding the play ers the two teams were lined up as foi- vs: "Tumblers." Positions. "Shawnees." Fink full back Foucht. Bliss left half Hinckley.

I Mur:son riant end Holcomb i Easier left guard Nazalen. j Martin right guard Tasker. .MeLatohey left tackle Davis. j Moffit right tackle Shumway. i The football game really turned out j to be a farce. A ground was not laid ' out nor ropes stretched and the epec- tatois crowded In around the players on ail sides, not giving them a chance to j run or make any plays whatever. Only one haif was piayed. and according to the referee the Shawnees scored a touch ; down. The Tumblers disputed the fact, j and refused to play, so the game ended, j Several boys on horseback did rough rider acts, inspired by Buffalo Bill's wild ' west show. Nearly a company of sol j dier boys in uniform were at the picnic. A SNAKE SCARE. Near the pavilion tent there was a lit i tie depression in the surface of the j ground, and a man discovered a snake j lying there in the grass. He immedi j ateiy secured a club and with, cries of "Snake! snake" he soon attracted quit I a crowd aj-ound him. The snake finally escaped into a little hole in tne grouno. The small but irrepressible bad boy again made his appearance on the hay (stacks which were in the field. It is i hard to tell just how much damage he i did to the stacks. It was great sport for him to climb to the top of the stack j and then "shoot the chutes." The tops i cf ail the stacks were torn off in this t manner and the hay scattered in all di I rections. I A distinguished looking man with gry i hair sat on a little mound or rise in the i formation of the hill and a bevy of girls going by saw him. They were making j ail sorts of speculations as to who he j was w hen one of them spoke up and said I she was sure that it was Mr. Martin ; and that he was sitting on top of the hill name.i for him. ! A littie girl on reaching the top of the hill looked off to the eastward to where the city of Topeka lay apparently sleep ing and said: "See mamma, Topeka looks like a graveyard." Th little girl undoubtedly had the right idea. To look at the city from the ; top of the "Hill was a scene so restful j that one wishes it could be their privi 4 lege to go there every day. As seen from the top of the "Hiii" the i city seems to lie in a valley dotted here ; and there by houses and trees. One can j not see the busy life on the streets and ; the scene is one of peaceful content, i Several of Tcpeka's entomologists took advantage of the occasion to make ad iitions to their collections of bugs and insects if the chance offered. by carrying their little hand nets along to catch anything that, happened their way. The field which was the scene of the picnic has a great many puff balls in it and numbers of people were seen gath ering them to take home. They are sup posed to be edible and some excellent specimens were found in the pasture. Major Anderson and others took out rides and shotguns and enjoyed them selves In tareet practice. A great many were thoughtful enough to take hammocks which were hung in various piaces in the woods and nearly i everyone seemed to have lunch baskets. ) Ll'NCHES IN THE EVENING. Late in the afternoon tabiecioths were 1 spread out In different parts of the I grounds and the good old-fashioned pic ' nic dinners were spread out and eaten I with reiish. ! Kodaks were numerous and a great 1 many snapshots were taken during the : day. About half past five the people began . to assemble at the railroad track to take the train back home. The crowd kept increasing until train time and not neariy half found seats on the first train. A FAIRYLAND FICTURE. It was after dark when the last train left the park and before the time for the next train a bonfire was started in the grove and every one was circled around it. It presented a pretty picture to those who saw it from a distance. The steep hill with a dense grove for the back ground and the many peopie assembled around the fire made -a picture w bioh could easily have been one taken from a book of fairy stories. It was late when the last of the 7.0CO who enjoyed the outing reached their homes but all had enjoyed themselves and all united in voting the picnic a success and a vote of thanks to the gen tlemen w ho planned and carried out the plans for the outing. AGAINST JNICHOLS Continued From First Page.1 even by the Incomplete Investigation that has already been, made, your party obligations are dissolved and it becomes your duty to refuse to vote for him and thereby express your disapproval of practices which are fraudulent, corrupt and unrepublican. Some have asked why we confine our fight to county attorney. We reply that he is the only nominee on the county ticket whom we know and have proved received his so-called nomination by gross and glaring fraud, and because he is the willing recipient and beneficiary of that fraud. Therefore, to make our protest effectual, we direct our fight though him against the practice of fraud at the primary, and in no sense against the Republican party, to ths support of which we pledge our votes and all honorable Influence at our com mand. Republicans, we believe that the Test local interests of our party are involved in this struggle. If we fail, the enemies of law and order will construe their suc sess into an indorsement of corrupt pri maries: they will be encouraged to re new and increase their efforts to control the affairs of this county, and they will be more strongly intrenched to do bat tle against us in the future. If we suc ceed, we accomplish two things: First, we demonstrate that Shawnee county Republicans are in favor of law, order, and decency: second, that a Republican primary in Shawnee county must be an honest one. in which none but Repub licans vote, in order to insure election of its nominees. Let us by cur voice. State Journal Artist. our influence, and our ballot, put this matter beyond all peradventure. and de feat Mr. Nichols on the sixth day of November. Now is the time to deal a telling blow to nefarious fraud, and every good citizen who fails to vote w ith us now is. to that extent, abetting a law less element and assisting It in denying to every citizen the protection of law. and to every voter a pure ballot and an honest count. By order of the executive committee of the Citizens' movement. N. H. LOOMIS, Chairman. ALBERT WATKINS. Secretary. GRIMES RECALLED. Continued from the First Page.1 "We won't stay here under that kind of notice," said Hite. "Go away, then," said Waters, "and we will run it ex parte, or fabricate a man to sit in your place." Mr. Freeman arrived without the books. He was sworn, and stated that he could not open the vault containing the record of the Grimes and Richey note. "Can you get the bank records," said Waters. "I am not at any time free to bring the books of our bank here," said Free man. "We want the books," said Waters and Dorsn. "Will you produce them?" "I can't bring the accounts of our cus tomers here for exhibition." said Free man. "I can have statements concern ing the Grimes account made and veri fied for your use." "On the statement of this witness we ask for an adjournment until Monday morning." said LHran. "We desire to cross-examine this wit ness before, that order is made," said Hite. "Mr. Freeman," he said, "have you in your bank any record showing payment to Grimes of interest, bonus, or any con sideration for the use of state money?" "We have not," said Freeman. "Has there been since you were cashier any understanding by which Mr. Grimes was to receive interest or a bonus or consideration for the use of the state money by the bank?" asked Hite. "No. sir." "Was there any understanding with any other officer of the bank?" "No. sir." "Is there any agreement of this kind between the bank and Grimes?" "No. sir." "Is Grm indebted to the bank? "No. sir."' "I th bank indebted to Grimes?" "No, sir. ' During the afternoon Mr. Grimes asked permission to make a statement- This was granted. He said: "This morning in my testimony I said that there might have been money in the general revenoa fund when warrants were stamped unpaid for want of funds. I desire to that we might have had on hand & large sum ( of warrants which, not having been rec- : cnled in the office of the auditor, might show a b:iiance of considerable size in the general revenue fund when as & matter of f.ict there was no money there." Mr. Hite - then cross-examined Mr. Grimes, who swore that the method of doing business through the banks had ex pedite.! the stite business: had been a convenience and benefit to the state: thst he had received no money in any manner calculated to remunerate him tor the use of the state money by the banks and de nied in every paxtiouiax the charges which have been made against him.
