6 ROGER'S COMING Tending Arrival of Oom Paul at Marseilles Is Attracting Much Attention Throughout Europe. WELL KNOWN PEOPLE Bjr the Hundreds Are Gather ing to Meet Him. Transraal President Will the Talking Hereafter. Do New York, Nov. 19. Dr. W. J. Leyds, the Transvaal minister to the courts of Europe has arrived at Marseilles, ac cording to a World dispatch from Paris. He comes to meet President Kruger, who is due to arrive soon on the Dutch cruiser Gelderland. The three Boer spec ial envoys who have been visiting Eur ope and America seeking intervention to restore peace in South Africa, will ar rive today from Paris. Dr. Leyds at Avignon, two hours distant from Mar seilles, said positively that Mr. Kruger will land at Marseilles, and not at Naples, or Genoa, as has been persist ently rumored. On being asked about Mr. Kruger'3 plans Mr. Leyds replied: "Really, I know scarcely more than you do," adding smilingly: "Hereafter you must apply to the president himself for information when he gets here. One man will represent the Transvaal and one man only." Several delegations met Dr. Leyds at the railway station in Marseilles- He postponed discussion of the Kruger re ception arrangements until today. When Dr. Ledys' carriage drove into the great interior court of the Hotel Noailles, al though great crowds lined the curbs, there was no demonstration. Dr. Leyds wnt directly to his apartment. He de clined to receive newspaper reporters ani began to dictate answers to a huge accumulation of dispatches. More than 600 prominent people from Paris. Berlin and Amsterdam have arrived at Mar seilles, Michael Davitt among others. ARRESTED FOR TWO CENTS Farmer Fails to Place Revenue Stamp on a Note. Mattoon, III., Nov. 19. Failure to place a 2-cent revenue stamp on a note for $25 precipitated trouble between Na thaniel Myers and F. A. Welch. two Clark county farmers. Myers gave the jnote to Welch as security for paEture rent, a difference arose over the terms, and Myers refused to pay. claiming there was no revenue stamp on the note and it was not binding. The justice before whom the case was tried upheld Myers' contention. Welch brought the matter before the federal authorities and Myers was ar rested on a charge of violating the in ternal revenue law. Today United States Deputy Commissioner Dyas at Paris heard the case and. while there was a technical violation of the statute, decided that Myers had not intended to defraud the government and he was dis charged. Bin i mif nnT m it i.iniLutniui in ii "Under No Circumstances" Senatorial Candidate. M. A. Low is out of the list of possi bilities for United States senator. Mr. Low, in a statement to some of his friends, said: "Under no circumstances will I be a candidate for United States senator. My present position in the service of the Rock Island railway company satisfies me, and I would not be disposed to change places for Senator Baker's seat, even if the opportunity should present ttself." This takes Mr. Low out of the con test. He may remain a dark horse, but for that matter the woods are full of inceptive candidates and they will con tinue to multiply until the end. It has been said that Mr. Low, to avoid com mitting himself, will go hunting next week and will remain away a month. Mr. Low goes on this trip every fall, and bis going this year is of no political sig nificance. He will be gone only two weeks. It is possible for him to be elected senator this winer. for there is no telling what the legislature will do, but it is certain that he will not in vite or encourage anything of the kind, and his acceptance is doubtful, even if elected. if' r n I II' 44 i'.' f.

FOOTBALL AT KANSAS CITY Ottawa to Play the Strong Medic Eleven Today. Ottawa, Kan., Nov. 19. The Ottawa university football team, which has been so crippled for the past few days, has rearranged some of the positions of in dividual players and will put up a much stronger game with the Kansas City Medics today than has been expected by those in close touch with the team. In fact, the line-up Saturday night and the vigor and team work shown was on a decided par with anything shown by the team this season. . Peterson has gone to complete the season with Em poria and Cook will take his place. Bur nett will fill the position made vacant at full back, and King will probably go into the game in his old time form. He has been laid up with a sprained ankle received in the laskell game at Law rence, but is now back in the game. Lambertson is also in good shape for quarter. Thus the back field will not be weakened by the absence of Peterson. Captain Evans, who was slightly in jured in the recent game with Emporia, is again in prime condition and says he will be able to help defeat the Medics the second time. SIIAFFERJS" OUT. Murray Myers, of Wichita, the New Asylum Steward. E. L. Shaffer, of Council Grove, has given up the position of steward at the Topeka asylum and Murray Myers, of Wichita, has been elected to succeed him. Myers is a close friend of Governor Stanley and is prominent in the Republi can party in Sedgwick county. He is not a business man in the strict sense of the word, but is literally a politician, having held numerous local offices, the last one being treasurer of Sedgwick county. Myers Is to take charge of- the office as soon as he can give the necessary bond and arrange his affairs to come to To peka. Shaffer resigned as the result of a con troversy with the board of charities. The board at first removed Sharfer from office, declaring the position vacant when Shaffer was out of town receiving treat ment from a broken limb, the injury be ing sustained while he was umpiring a game of baseball at the asylum. Shaffer returned to the city, notwith standing the fact that he had been or dered to report to be checked out of of fice, and reported for his official duties. To this the officers of the asylum and the members of the board strenuously obiouted and insisted that Shaffer vacate. But ne refused and demanded an investi gation. He assumed this position in accordance with the provisions of a decision of the supreme court in the now famous ten ure of office act. under which John Breidenthal has been able to hold the of fice of state bank commissioner under a Republican administration. A majority of the members of the board of charities, agreed that there was cause for Shaffer's removal, but when confront ed with the legal phase of the preposi tion, which guarantees the steward the right to investigation, they deciined to a.ct, so the matter was patched up, the scandal which the members of the board alleged was hushed, and Mjr. Shaffer was permitted to resign. The resignation, at the time of the con. traversy placed in the hands of members of the board, named November 15 as the date upon which Shaffer's connection with the institution should cease. When that date arrived Mr. Shaffer packed his clothes and departed. Immediatelv the board of charities declared Murray Myers steward, but he has not yet reached To peka. While waiting for Myers to take charge Superintendent Biddle is bearing the bur den of the work of the steward. The in. stitution and the board are now awaiting the convenience of Mr. Myers. MARTIN IRONS DEAD. Director of the Famous Missouri Pa cific Strike Passes Away. Houston, Tex., Nov. 19. Martin Irons, who was once leader of the union labor organizations, and who directed the great Missouri Pacific strike in the eighties, died yesterday at Bruoeville, twenty miles south of Waco. Irons came to the county three years ago and, stop ping with Dr. G. B. Harris, the then Populist county chairman, he found con genial company and began organizing Social Democratic clubs. "Anti-Money-Rent" was the slogan used to arouse the tenant farmers, and in the course of a few months the en tire south border of McLennan, east part of Ball and northwest portion of Falls counties were organized into the clubs. The organization extended to the east side of the Brazos river. MRS. SIMPSON DEAD. Prominent Pioneer Kansas Woman Buried Yesterday. Norton, Nov. 19 Mrs. Emma Simpson, one of the most estimable ladies of Nor ton, was buried Sunday. She was the wife of Win. Simpson, who died about a year ago. The Simpsons were old set tlers of Norton county, respected and admired by all. The husband was a strong candidate for the Republican nomination for congress in the Sixth district, in the Phillipsburg convention, six years ago. The pall-bearers were those who served at the funeral of her husband. " ..... .1 PPT -0 OUR GUNS ALL RIGHT. Chaffee Says So in Response to Official Inquiry. Washington, Nov. 19. Some disparag ing criticism upon the American field gun as exhibited in the Chinese cam paign led Adjutant General Corbin to address the following inquiry to General Chaffee: "Adjutant General's Office, Novembei 15, 1900. Chaffee, Pekin: Asserted our light artillery guns did not meet all re quirements service compared with other armies. What are the facts. "CORBIN." The following response has been re ceived: "Adjutant General, Washington, No vember 16. Replying to your No. 72, our battery better than any army in cam paign. German battery" just arrived; some features superior to ours. Powder charge in case fired with trigger like pistol. More rapid account result. Break arm also better, calibre not quite so large. Our battery highly praised, par ticularly so by General Linevitch, who said he felt like taking off his hat when ever he saw it. No battery so effective as ours in attacks on Pekin. "CHAFFEE." GOTHAM HORSE SHOW. The Sixteenth Annual Exhibit Opens in Madison Square Garden New York, Nov. 19. The sixteenth an nual exhibition of the National Horse Show association opened in Madison Square Garden today. Nearly $10,000 in excess of the prices offered at any pre ceding show are bid at the auction sale of box seats. Sixty-four box seats were sold at an average of $400, the highest price being $625. As against 1,300 entries last year there are nearly 1,500 this season. The ring committee for today and tonight are Colonel Delancy Kane and George Peabody Wetmore during the day and William C. W'hitney and William H. Taylor for the evening performance. MAY BE COURTMARTIAL. Trouble Between Capt. MoCalla and Lieut. Com. ColwelL Washington, Nov. 19. The proceed ings in the case of Capt. McCalla is a court of inquiry and not a court martial. The navy department was advised some time ago that trouble had arisen between Capt. McCalla, commanding the Newark and Lieutenant Commander John C. Colwell, formerly naval attache at Lon don, and now executive officer of the ship. While the department was ac quainted with the fact it left the matter to the' commander-in-chief of the sta tion, Admiral Remey, to adjust. He has now found it necessary to appoint a court of inquiry, which will determine the merits of the dispute between the two officers. Should this tribunal recom mend a court martial in the case of Capt. McCalla it would be necessary to relieve him immediately from his com mand and order him to the United States, for there are not a sufficient number of officers of the required rank on the Asiatic station to form a court martial for the captain. BERNIIARDT'S PLAN. May Alternate With. Operatic Stars Upon Her Return to Paris. Paris, Nov. 19. There was a prodig ious coming and going of guests, trades people, dramatists, even of mere guests, at the residence of Sarah Bernhardt prior to her departure for America, and more plans were sketched out for what she should do on her return to France than the great artist will ever be able to accomplish, despite her tremendous activity. Beyond any manner1 of doubt one of the boldest of theses and its very bold ness, as well as its character of refined art, was well calculated to attract this most enterprising of manageresses a project of which no whisper has been published and which has to be tempo rarily abandoned in face of the enor mous! expenditure which it would entail, was to add next year to the Theater Sarah Bernhardt an, opera company whose performances would alternate with those "of the eminent tragedienne. To a few friends Sarah had begun to sketch out the elements; of the company she wished to gather the De Reszke brothers, who, as is well known, for a long time past have cherished the idea of establishing in Paris a model opera, to which they would lend their talents and their artistic sense; Mile. Breval, M. Plancon and many others. This plan, conceived on the eve of de parture for America, is perchance only a castle in Spain, but with Sarah the seemingly impossible has so often been realized that it is permissible to say, "chi la sa?" ROBBED THE FIDDLER. Joseph Eberle Is Being Tried For the Crime. The trial of Joseph Eberle, a Russian, for the holding up and robbing of Chris Schultz in June was commenced in the district court this morning. Last June there was a Russian wed din in North Topeka. Chris Schultz was the musician who furnished the music for the wedding dance. The festivities .lasted until early in the morning. Schultz claims that he was on his way home from the wedding and was held up near the north end of the Santa Fe bridge. He says the man who held him up smashed his violin and took $24.95 from him. He claims that Eberle was the man who robbed him. As all the parties to the case and the witnesses are Russians the trial is being conducted with the aid of an interpreter. WANTS THE COURT ROOM. Semi-Centennial Exposition Company Wants It Por a Work Room. County Treasurer Philips has filed a petition with the county commissioners asking that the Kansas Semi-centennial Exposition company be allowed the use of the court room to be vacated by the court of appeals. The court of appeals goes out of busi ness in January, and sthe north court room on the second floor of the court house will then be vacant. Mr. Philips asks that the exposition company be al lowed to use the room on the grounds that the exposition is a matter of pub lic interest and benefit to the city, county and state. There has been some talk of allowing the city court to use the court room. The city court is at present situated in a not over desirable room in the basement. If the commissioners decide to allow the city court the court room other quarters may be found for the exposition company. Lecture on General Grant by Con gressman Chas. B. Landia, of Indiana, Tonight The lecture course committee have been at great pains to secure Congress man Chas. B. Landis of Indiana, to de liver a lecture on General Grant at the High School assembly hall tonight. Mr. Landis made an enviable reputation as a public speaker in the memorable de bate on the Brigham H. Roberta resolu tion in congress last winter. Have you seen Smith? A SELLSSUITOR. TContinued From First Page. Sherlock Holmeses who watched the Sells house, was called. Ehret is now a sa loonkeeper and lives at 25 East Naghten street. He has beeen in Columbus for 2H years and was employed for many years at the Union station. He workea for Mahoney about four months. He knew William Bott. also Harry Lyons, He was first put to watch Lyons on the night of October 23. On the night of the 25th he followed Lyons from his boarding house to several places about town. Lyons about 8 o'clock took a car and went north. He got off at Buttles avenues, walked to the house at the southwest corner of Buttles and Dennison avenues (the Sells house) and rang the door bell. He talked for a few moments to some one at the front door, but did not go in, and then went back down town. The "shadow" was soon after taken off Lyons. On the night of October 27, he saw Bott come to the Sells house. He entered at the front door. The door was opened by a woman. He could not see her features, but she was the taller and older of the two women he had seen at the house. He also told of the lights and shadows in the house. On the night of November 3 he again saw Bott at the house. He was again a.dmitted by a woman, the same one as the former night. Ehret said that be fore Bott would leave the house the wo man who admitted him would come out of the front door, walk out on the porch and look up and down Buttles avenue. She would then go back in the house and Bott would come out. He said the woman always made an inspection of the street before Bott would come out. Bott was admitted to the house on November 9 by the same woman, and again on the 12th. On the night of October 2G he saw a man enter the house by the side door, but the lights were out and he could not recognize him. When he attempted to follow the caller gave him the slip and he lost him. Ehret said that on one night he was watching the house and was standing on the corner. A woman came out of the house and walked up to him. She took a good look into his face and then pass ing him a few steps, turned and walked back to the house. He was asked if he knew the woman. He said, "yes," and turning around in his chair, pointed to Mrs. Sells and said, "There she is." Mrs. Sells looked him in the face with a steady glance, while a slight smile curved her lips. RAID POVERTY HOLLOW. Strange to Say the Robber Got 161. Guy Roudebush was arrested this af ternoon by Sheriff Cook charged with, robbing Mrs. Harrison of $145. Mrs. Harrison and Roudebush live with Mra Caroline Hercules, mother of Mrs. Harrison, a mile west of Lowman Hill in a district known as "Hungry" or "Poverty" hollow. Mrs. Hercules and Roudebush claim that some time Sat urday night a man entered the house and took $9 from under Roudebush's pillow, $145 from under Mrs. Harrison's pillow, and while he was getting $5.65 from un der Mrs. Hercules' pillow he awakened her and she gave the alarm. Roudet bush claimed that he got his Winchester rifle and hunted for the man but could not find him. After hearing all the stor ies Sheriff Cook thought there was enough suspicion to justify the arrest of Roudebush THE ICE TRUST. Governor Roosevelt Answers the Van Wyck Charges. Albany, N. T., Nov. 19. Governor Roosevelt has prepared the following memorandum of the charges against Mayor Van Wyck of New York City in the Ice Trust matter: "There are three wholly distinct sides to the let Trust matter. "In the first place, there is the general question whether the American Ice com pany, dealing as it does in a necessary of life to the poor people of New York, is one into which it was proper for a public spirited man to enter. This is, of course, not a question for legal action in any shape or form. "Moreover, it is unnecessary to point out that, whether the corporation is legal or illegal, proper or improper in character, it is an act of utter hypocrisy on the part of any public man to de nounce trusts in general, and this trust in particular, in the platform and on the stump, while he at the same time, in his private capacity, holds stock, or has held stock, that he thus denounces. "Attention is called to this feature simply because an effort has been made to show that unless legal action against the trust or some of its stockholders can be taken, these same public men are to be exonerated. "Second There is the question wheth er or not the existence of this so-called let Trust is in violation of the anti trust law. This, of course, can only be decided by the courts. "On May 28, 1S00, the attorney general instituted proceedings to annul the cer tificate of the Ice company under this law. The corporation, through its coun sel, has fought the action at every stage on technicalities, not on the merits of the case. The first decision before Judge Chester was in favor of the state. An appeal has been taken by the defendants which was argued weeks ago, and the attorney general is daily expecting a decision by the appellate division on this appeal. The defendants obtained a stay of proceedings pending the appeal. "All possible diligence has been shown by the attorney general in the effort to secure the annulment of the certificate, and nothing could have been done by the state to expedite proceedings, which has not been done. The delay is due, of course, to the course of the corpora tion itself, whose stockholders include the public men above alluded to. "We now come to the third side of the matter, the only one in which the gov ernor, in his? official capacity, has any power whatsover to act, . viz., the charges against Mayor Van Wyck. "Inasmuch as the question as to whether the lee corporation is or is not a trust or monopoly is before the courts, for decision, until they have acted, ac tion by the governor can only with pro priety be taken, under the Greater New York charter. So far as the charges are brought under this charter, it makes no difference as regards the mayor's con duct, whether the aforesaid corporation is or is not a trust within the meaning of the law." More Than Claimed. New York, Nov. 19. The board of county canvassers today completed the canvass of the vote in the Eighth con gressional district and announced the official figures: Creamer 10.330, Van Cott 10.079. Creamer's majority, therefore is 251, nearly 100 votes more than the Dem ocrats claimed. $1.20 Reign of Law $1.20. James Lane Allen's Latest Book. Een nett'3 Book store, 730 Kansas avenue.
