Seren Thousand People Visit
Martin's Hill.
Delightful Outing For People of
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.

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-.
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.
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
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 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-
"Tumblers." Positions. "Shawnees."

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.
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.
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
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.

Some have asked why we confine our

of that fraud. Therefore, to make our
protest effectual, we direct our fight

"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
"Can you get the bank records," said
"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
"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.

of the reserve being wiped out. Next
Saturday will in aii likelihood find the
banks in better condition than thev have
been in a long time. With all danger of
tight money removed the tone of the stock
market should improve. The flurry in
Feople's Gas has thrown the shorts, not
only in this uarticular stock, hut uii
through the list, into confusion and up- '
set their plans. If the bull pools take it I
into their head to Mve market a lively
whirl they can very easily d- it. as st'Xks :
are scarce and quite a cutiibcr of large t
operators stand ready to take the buvtn i
side, if they can be convinced that a iro;d I
turn is in sint. About the onlv b -af ar
gument heard is that the Brvan celebra
tion will take New York off the list i f ;
doubtful states and piace it in the Demo- j
era tic column, i Here are plenty cf peo- i

McKinley's majority in the state will be

says it wiil reach Pi&.wx If stocks seil
oft as a result of Bryan's vl-it thev should
be bought without the lease hesitation.
There is a strong buil combination in
Pennsylvania. All of offerings of stocks
are being absorbed ami brokers w-orking
for the pool are telling their friends to
buy it for a big rise. Sngar is a sale on
the sharp bulges, but those who sell it
should not stay short too long. Unless
the Chicago Gas war is settled this weeic.
People's Gas will react two or three
points as the short interest is about elim
