The steamer Aberdeen arrived from Lynn canal last night with seventy passengers. Her Klondike passengers came up the river on the Ora. She left Dawson October 13, and the Ora. the last boat of the season, a. day later. She had a large crowd of passengers aboard. L. Wil liams, an Ora passenger, says the Yukon is doubtless now frozen over in many places. Coming across Queen Charlotte sound the Aberdeen got afoul of a sunken log and broke one of hei pro peller blades. The mishap lessened her speed a little, but caused no other in convenience. Police Are Baffled. Vancouver, B. C, Nov. 3. The 'Au stralian police have been baffled by the Bee Long murderers. Seven months ago the entire colony was startled by a series of murders which took place within one hundred miles of Sydney. Two well known desperadoes, Jimmy and Joe Governor, half-breeds, were the only ones of the murderers who escaped. Since then they have killed two officers and a woman. A proclamation, has been issued by the chief justice of New South Wales declaring the men to be outlaws, so that they may legally be shot down if it is found impossible to capture them alive. Jones is Not Crazy. New York, Nov. 3. Charles F. Jones, secretary-valet of the late Wm.

Such powders are sold cheap, because they cost but a few cents per pound. Not only will they spoil the cake, but alum is a corro sive acid, which takes in food means injury to health. 100 WILLIAM ST., NEW YORK, BRITISH LOSSES. October Average With Other Honths of the War. London, Nov. 3. The South African situation is improving and Lord Roberts will shortly return to England with a majority of his staff. Arrangements are being made in Cape Town to send the first batch of refugees back to Johannes burg, and accommodation is being pro vided at Bloemfontein for a. garrison of seven thousand. Nevertheless the activity of the Boers continues. On October 26, a commando of 300 captured a garrison of 30 men at Reddersburg, but afterward released them. Trains from the south to Pretoria are attacked by the Boers almost daily. On October 24 the burghers occupied Koffyfontein. On the other hand General Knox has inflicted a reverse on General Dewet's forces near Parys, capturing two guns, one of them a weapon lost by the Brit ish in the Sannas post affair. The daily tale of British casualties Is heavy. During the month of October the British lost 167 killed in action, includ ing 15 officers, 71 who died of wounds. 367 who died of disease, 22 who died of accidents and 97 captured or missing, a total almost equal to the monthly aver age for the duration of the war. The Daily Express publishes sensa tional statements tnat the Boer resist ance is more serious than has hitherto been believed, and that in consequence Lord Roberts' return is likely to be still further postponed. It says also that no considerable party of troops will return before January or February, while the regimental drafts from England will continue and 5,000 horses will be sent out. The paper definitely declares that the Boers are well armed and abundant ly supplied with ammunition, and that the campaign is likely to last another six months. In the best informed quarters, how ever, it is asserted that there Is no ground for the pessimism of the Daily Express. CAR LEAVES TRACK. Lowman Bill Passengers Given Shaking Up Last Night One of the new cars brought from St. Louis by the Street Railway company, jumped the track last night at one of the defective joints, near Morris ave nue, and landed in the mud, front down, the roof slanting upwards at an angle of about 30 degrees. The colored women, their children, the white "women aijd the men passengers were plunged into a confused pile at the front end of the car, being later extrica ted and compelled to complete the re mainder of the trip home by walking. Not Carlos' Rising. Venice, Nov. 3.

It was odd enough to have a Cakewalk In the Ameer's palace in Afghanistan, but to have the shifty coon step invade the Irish melodrama is positively sad. The burnt cork minstrel has tried to push the jolly Hibernian, with his fiery red Galway fringe, from the center of the stage for a long time, thus rar tney have not gone beyond the legitimate ap peal to public favor, each taking their turn one alter the other, like vaudeville. Now ti seems that the Irish melodram atists have had to incorporate the cake walk into their fetes along with the Kerry dance and the himble clog. Little Norine did it with Murty Kerrigan in "The Ivy Leaf," at the Crawford last night, at any rate. The question that now arises is how long will it be before Shakespeare succumbs to the ecstatic rag time? Perhaps Topeka will see Bot tom or Puck lead one of Titania's fairies through the pas-ma-la when the James Kidder combination arrives here next month. Who knows? "The Ivy Leaf" east was not strong enough to do justice to the pretty Irish melodrama of many years' popularity. They declaimed their lines in resem blance to a class in elocution, Neil O'Callaghan as Darby Flynn, the old fisherman, came nearer to escaping dullness than Edwin Hanford'9 "Murty Kerrigan" and Virginia Clay's "Collice O'Brien." The spectacular features the eagle s flight across the stage carry ing Little Norine to his crag, her rescue, the ivy tower scene with Murty's dar ing leap from it had special scenery and interest centered in their apt work ings. In the way of specialties John W. Hogan, the Irish piper, was much ap preciated. Miss Hart, Mr. Hanford and Mr. O'Callaghan clung to the good old Irish jigs and were generously applaud ed for their work In this line. FIGHTING IN CHINA. Anglo -German Force Success fully Storm Tzching Pass. London, Nov. 3. The Pall Mall Ga zette this afternoon publishes a dispatch from Ichow, dated October 28,' which says heavy fighting has occurred in the mountains on the Shan Si frontier. An Anglo-German force of 1,500 men, com manded by Col. Von Norman, stormed Tzching Kung pass. The Chinese occupied a strong posi tion on , the crest and stubbornly re sisted. They poured a hot enfilading fire oil the advance party of 80 Ger mans, under Major Von Forresteer, but the British Bengal cavalry and mounted sappers, dismounted, scaled the heights, turned the enemy's flank and relieved the Germans. , peopiTe driven back. Robbers Wreck an Ohio Bank With. Dynamite and Escape. Bellefontalne, O., Nov. 3. The Farm ers' and Merchants bank at Jackson Center was blown open at 2 o'clock this morning, and it is stated $5,600 was se cured.

Memphis, Tenn., Nov. 3. The steamer Hill City, belonging to the Hill City Steamboat company of St. Louis, and plying between St. Louis and New Or leans, struck a hidden obstruction in Tennessee Chute just below the city at 1:30 o'clock this morning and sank. The water covers the lower deck, but the boat lies in a good position and can easily be raised. The Hill City was en route to New Orleans and had a full cargo, 30 passengers and a crew of 40. All got safely ashore in yawls. Plague at Glasgow Suppressed. Glasgow, Nov. 3. The last of the plague sufferers was dismissed from the hospital today. DANGERS TAL Young People Enthusiastic Oyer Twentieth Century Ball. Ladies Meet With Other Mem bers of Committee. OLD FATHER TIME. He Will Ring Out the Century and Ring in New. Costume Question is Already Causing Worry. The Twentieth Century Inaugural Fete will be a great success if the zeal and enthusiasm aa displayed by the members of the advisory board at their meeting in the Commercial club rooms ia a criterion. One thing which stood out prtwnl nently at the meeting was the fact that a large perectnage of those present were ladies. And when the ladies take hold of an enterprise it may be set down as a foregone conclusion that the affair will be carried through to a successful end. Chairman George W. Crane opened the meeting by explaining what had al ready been accomplished by the ex ecutive committee and outlined the work for the future in a general way. He said: "Of course ifc should be understood from the beginning that it will not be a mask affair. On the contrary we want to make this a costume ball, leaving oft the objectionable features. Of course this will not exclude the wearing of any kind of headdress necessary to carry out the idea of the dress of a certain epoch. , "The scale of prices will probably be from $2 to $3 for the privileges of the first floor. Those who occupy seats in the balcony to view the pretty spectacle will probably pay 50 cents for the priv ilege of sitting in either of the first three rows and 25 cents for seats back of the third row." A suggestion which meets with favor is the plan to use the old fire bell which has fallen into disuse, when the new year and the new century begin. The bell may be painted in imitation of the old Liberty bell, and placed on the stage of the Auditorium. Promptly at 12 o'clock, Major Tom Anderson, typically attired as Father Time, carrying his scythe and hour glass, will come hobbling across the stage and beat out the old year and ring in the new century by striking the Dell a dozen times, the hour, midnight. This plan will be adopted and elabo rated. Every one to whom it is told eoes into ecstacies over it. The arrange ment for the details of this plan will come under the direction of the pro gramme committee. Dr. Henry Koby suggested giving a pantomime of some of the situations in Lonsrfellow's "Courtship of Miles Stand- ish." The characters will be on the floor in costume and could be drilled to go through with the pantomime while some one read passages from the poem. Colonel Hughes suggested having the minuet danced by from twelve to twenty oounles. The Virginia reel was suggested a3 a wind-up to the ball by Miss iiiuen. i-aris-hurst. The subject of costumes was discussed at length. It was the opinion of some that owing to the fact that other cities were to have the century ball that it would be difficult to secure costumes. Another suggestion was to appoint a committee of ladies who would make all the costumes needed for pay. However, these questions will come up for final settlement at the meeting at the Commercial club rooms next Wed nesday afternoon at 3 o'clock. "There is some doubt in the minds cf the people," said Miss Edna Crane, "as to the meaning of the statement of the executive committee when they an nounced that only costumes worn in America since its discovery would be in order. "Some," she said, "have the Idea that only the characters that are wholly American are meant by the announce ment. The Idea of the committee as I understand it is to allow the fancy court dress and the dress of those lower in rank of those who came over to this country from the time of its discovery In 1492 down until the present." Chairman Crane asked of those pres ent: "Who is there here who will not serve on a committee when appointed?" Not a. voice was heard and with a smil ing face Mr. Crane said: "I am glad to see that you all mean to do your best jn helping make the Twentieth Century In augural Fete a function which will be the swellest ever given in Topeka." John C. Waters suggested a refresh ment committee. "It should be the most important committee among the bunch," said he. The committee adjourned to meet Wednesday afternoon. In the meantime following out. a suggestion made by A. B. Quinton, all the members of the ad visory board who know of others who will help in the work will send the names to either Major Anderson at the Commercial club or to the chairman of the executive committee, George W. Crane. The committee received a note from Edward Wilder declining because of ab sence from the city to serve on com mittee. ACHENBACH DENIES. Clay Center Postmaster Resents Charge That He Favors Free Silver. Clay Center iias more political trou bles than any town of Its size in Kan sas. The latest controversy has been caused by the Populist charge that H. C. Achenbach, postmaster, is for free silver at 16 to 1, therefore, at heart, a Bryan man holding office under McKinley. The publication of this charge has aroused the postmaster and his friends, who have united in the following protest: "This charge is utterly without foun dation.
