TOPEKA STATE JOURNAL, WEDNESDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 28, 1900.
JOINS GOOD WORK Warden Tomlinson Recommends Civil Service. Baneful Effect of Politics Plainly Seen. MAKES HIS REPORT. Still $30,000 Worth of Twine on Hand. T? apa mm ATI da Tonstrnction of Cottages For Employes. J. B. Tomlinson, warden of the Kan sas penitentiary, believes in civil service reform in the institution and recom mends the adoption of that idea in his biennial report filed with Governor Stanley. "Persons should not," says Mr. Tom linson in his report, and the suggestion is unanimously endorsed by the mem bers of the board of directors of the prison, "be given employment at the prison, in anv capacity, because of per sonal or political iniluence. Employes should be selected because of the fit ness and capacity." This sentiment will be received with pleasure by the people of Kansas, re gardless of party, because Kansas be lieves in civil service reform in the state institutions, both penal and charitable, and thtre is a unanimity of sentiment in the state at large in favor of taking these public institutions out of the bale ful influence of politics. The warden alsogenerously commends the parole system adopted by Governor Stanley with reference to prisoners and recommends that the governor's plan be elaborated, in some respects, and made a matter of law by legislation. Another important subject in the war den's report is a recommendation that the Bertlllon system of measuring prisoners be adopted. This makes iden tification possible under any circum stances, whether a prisoner or an ex convict be alive or dead. Mr. Tomlinson also suggests that the state authorize the construction of cot tages for the use of employes and otfi cers of the prison. He calls attention to the fact that the prison has a brick plant, plenty of stone and labor, and at a small expense could erect on the un occupied lands owned by the state, a number of cottages which would accom modate the men who now are compelled to hustle for places in which to live while they are employed at the prison. Mr. Tomlinson also recommends that, in addition to the twine plant, no addi tional manufacturing enterprises be in augurated In connection with the prison. The warden recommends that the twine plant be placed under the management of a competent superintendent, instead of under the warden, as it now is. When prisoners, discharged, leave the penitentiary they are supplied with a suit of clothes. Mr. Tomlinson thinks the quality of the clothing now being supplied is not as good at it should be, and recommends that the inferior stuff be displaced, in the future, by better material. This will necessitate a slight increase in the appropriation, which ha recommends. A coid storase plant, in the opinion of the warden and the board of directors, would pay for its cost in a single yea:, and the legislature 13 asked to establish such a plant. . A competent electrician is also sug gested, as an addition to the present force, to take charge of the lighting and power supplied by the prison plants. These duties now devolve on others, who. in the opinion of the warden, have all that they can attend to and do it well, so he suggests the change. An inter-communicating telephone system and fire alarm pystem are also recommended for the prison; also pro vision for insurance of the building-s and property. No insurance is carried, but tires have caused a loss, in the past two years, amounting to $13,Oj0. The twine plant product was sold to the amount of J-0.285.56. Of this amount all but $264 has been paid, and the bal ance is now in process of collection. , There is now on hand twine worth $.10. 259.26. Probably next year the twine product will be jold to jobbers and dealers, instead of direct to the con sumer, as was the practice this year. However, this has not been fully de termined by the management of the prison. The Populist administration left a de ficiency legacy of $1,759. This has not been paid, and the legislature is asked to settle it. This is the only deficiency in the financial affairs of the prison at this time. Warden Tomlinson has turned into the treasury over $1,000 un- FGO WEAK LUI1QS Tha New lFOMAL-DE-HYDE Treatment. . Never befors was there a cure for lung trouble, which destroyed 1, A,,.,,..-..

An appropriation, of t-0.000'l3 asked for repairs and new buildings, of which $2,000 is for new cell room. The balance is the funds necessary to keep the ma chinery, and prison property repaired and in good condition. There are now in the penitentiary 951 prisoers. The previous year had 916. The publication of the reports of the warden and directors will this year be limited. The Populist administration published 2,500 of the report made by Warden Landis. Of these about 1,000 are piled up at the prison, having never been sent out. An additional 800 are at the state house. This, by the present ad ministration, is regarded as extrava gance and unnecessary expense, and the necessities only will be provided for in the report made by Mr. Tomlinson, which Is now in the hands of the state printer. A vaTcLWd III TJOOUTII, XTrugnay About to Sever Friend ly Relations With Brazil. Bolivia Shows a Disposition to Get Into the Game. New York, Nov. 28. A dispatch to the Herald from Rio Janeiro says: Official information of a positive character has confirmed the reports that Uruguay is about to sever friendly re lations with Brazil. It is admitted that the government at Montevideo has inu mated that it will soon hand his pass ports to the Brazilian minister. The cabinet has discussed the atti tude of Uruguay, but in the absence of dehnue action has not decided wnat course shall be pursued. Bolivia also Ls showing some feeling against Brazil. Its minister has pre sented a protest against alleged support given to the republic of Acre by the au thorities of the state of Amaaonas. The Bolivian minister informed the minister of war that the Bolivian troops have been hampered greatly in their" work or suppressing the rebellion because sup plies have been received by the insurg ents throusrh Brazilian territory. Through its soldiers and its friendship with Peru, the Bolivian government has been unable to stop war supplies from the west. Its officers who are endeav oring to suppress the trouble report. however, that the rebels, many of whom have come from the state of Amazonas, have no difficulty in obtaining munitions bv wav of the Amazon and Burus rivers. Brazil is asked to take decisive meas ures in co-operation with Bolivia to end the rebellion. SIX POWERS READY To Sign the Proposed Joint Agreement With China. Paris, Nov. 2S- It is said on high authority that Germany has assented, without modification to the joint note prepared by the ministers of the powers at Pekin and that France has also con curred. The officials of the foreign office deny the statement from Pekin that France has seized territory at Tien Tsin for the purpose of tripling the size of tier con cession. A dispatch from Pekin to the Havas agency says the ministers of the follow ing powers declare they are authorized to sign the joint agreement to be pre sented to China. Germany, the United States, Great Britain, Austro-Hungary, Belgium and Italy. CONGKP. TOLD TO WAIT. Washington, Nov. 28. The state de partment has cabled Minister Conger to forward the text of the agreement reached by the foreign ministers at Pe kin. Meanwhile he will withhold his signature until the president has had an opportunity to satisfy himself as to thi3 important document and to make such changes as will bring it in accord with our policy. It is saf3 to predict that this particu lar agreement will not become effective in its present shape. It appears tha.t upon inquiry directed to the powers themselves their ministers at Pekin have not correctly reflected their present views as to the basis of the peace nego tiations. This statement certainly is true as to a majority of the' powers in terested and the fact is regarded as warranting the prediction that the agreement must be modified or aban doned. It is "learned at the state department that while these negotiations are drag ging along at Pekin. some of the Amer ican consuls in China are achieving practical and valuable results by in dividual efforts. They are addressing themselves in cases directly to the viceroys of the great provinces where American property interests have suf fered to secure Indemnity and repara tion, and in most cases they are suc ceeding very well. It is surmised from the latest Chinese advices that the Eng lish consuls are doing likewise and are collecting many claims and the moneys are being turned over to the mission. If this method continues it is entirely probable that neither Great Britain or the United States will have to prosecute individual claims for indemnity through the slow moving agencies at Pekin. SAT IN A DRAUGHT. How the Czar Laid the Founda tion of His Sickness. St. Petersburg, Nov. 28. "While the at tending physicians of the czar until re cently asserted that no complications had been observed in, his majesty's con dition, a physician In court circles de clared a few days ago that there- had been pectoral complication from the be ginning which, he added, explained the influenza diagnosis of the early stages of his sickness. He further asserted that the illness of the czar was in the first in stance caused by the fact that he sat between an open window and an open door dictating, and that Baron Fred erick, the aide de camp, general and minister of the imperial household, had been greatly blamed because he was present and did not remonstrate with, the emperor. Twelve Miners Killed. Paris, Nov. 2S. A dispatch from Aniche, near Touai, says a quantity of dynamite at the bottom of one of the coal mines there exploded today from an unknown cause. Twelve dead miners and eight injured have been removed and eighteen are not accounted for. Now is the greatest opportunity to buy wall paper and moulding, for Beckstrom is selling out his entire stock, regard less of cost. tm. SELLS' STORY. Continued From First Pag.J The dog was Tony, which has figured previously in the suit. He never knew of Mrs. Sells having any othjr communication with Bott. Air. Sells at llrst . allowed his wife J30 per week for household expenses. Later this allowance was increased to $35. "Beside this, I paid all other big bills," said he. A telephone was put In the house during the husband's absence. It was placed in the linen closet on the second floor. Peter objected to the iocation, as It was Inconvenient. She insisted on it being left where it was, because of the privacy af forded by the closet. Mrs. Sells and Florence visited West Baden during the summer of 1899. He knew nothing at the time of any meeting there between Bntt and Mrs. Sells. Mrs. Sells declined to go to Philadelphia or West Baden with her husband because of the expense. Sells looked for some other companion, and after several failures, asked Bott to go, at Mrs. Sells' suggestion. Bott did not positively accept it. Later on Mrs. Sells changed her mind, and de cided to go with her husband to West Baden. On the train from Cincinnati to West Baden Bott appeared. He had been In Cin cinnatl a couple of days, he said. He made no explanation of his presence. The departure of Mr. Sells had been delayed one day by the death of Joe Mutter, the Columbus bill poster. During several seasons Mrs. Sells vis ited the Thousand Islands. She was ac companied by her daughter Florence. Miss Huddley Ambos, of Cleveland, com panion of Miss Florence, accompanied them in 1S9S. In the direct examination it developed that when Peter Sells left his home, in the fall of 1889, he took only the clothes he wore. All his papers are still In the pos session of his wife. During the West Baden visits Mrs. Sells snent a large part ot Dotn torenoon ana afternoon in her room. "How long were these stays?" Mr. Booth asked. "Oh, I don't know." was the reply. "I paid no attention I had no suspicion. "Mrs. Sells had been at the hotel two weeks before I got there. She seemed to know almost every one in the hotel." Sells had no knowledge of any calls paid by Lyons to Mrs. Sells in his absence, nor of any presents or correspondence being exchanged. He never found Lyons in thei rooms on returning from an nnsence. Miss Klla Souders, a second cousin of Mrs. Sells, visited them at the Park. Lyons occasionally -called, ostensibly upon Aliss Ssouuers. THE ENGAGEMENT. Mrs. Sells told her husband that Lyons was engaged to be married to a young lacy in .fittsourg. sne sometimes toKea Lyons on it in the presence of others. After the Sellses moved to their new home Lyons called and once said that his en gagement was broken. Lyons occasionally calico at tne foens apartments, ana m company witn otners. piayea a social trame of cards. Sometimes it was noker. sometimes it was pedro, euchre and crib baee. While these games continued at the Park hotel no lunch was served. Some times after the game was over Mrs. Sells would ask for a sandwich. He had no bar bill. Lyons very seldom called, to the knowl edge of the husband, after the Sellses moved to the new house. Sells sometimes bought coal through Lyons, and he vis ited the House to attend to tne ueal in person. Lyons was used to "fill in" at social card games when invited guests failed to appear. Mrs. Sells sometimes suggest ed mat ne oe invited. Lyons withdrew from a "penny-ante" game one night because he was offended at Judge Bradbury, of the supreme court. Bradburv alwavs beat him. Peter thought Lyons' conduct very small in such a small game. "If he played till doomsday he couldn't lose much, said he to Mrs. Sella. "I guess we won t invite him again. NOT A PARTICIPANT. Mrs. Sells very seldom took a hand in these card games. After the rame was over a small Dutch lunch was served. Oc casionally a drink of whisky was served to some of the gentlemen during the sme. - - Sells quit smoking In 1R94, and he did not smoke at all until the past winter. Therefore, he never threw arry cigar butts or scattered cigarette ashes in his wife's bed room. "My relations with Mrs. Sells were very pleasant. She always treated me well in my presence. We were quite an affection ate couple. We always embraced and kissed on meeting and parting. My treat ment of Mrs. Sells was always kind and indulgent. I provided for her always well, and as llberallv as I was able to do. "Until the fall of lsift) I never had any reason to doubt the fidelity of my wife." In response to a question. Mr. Sells stat ed that the first Information he received as to the alleged infideiity of his wife came from John Mahoney. detective. This was on October 21. 189S. After hav ing a talk with Mahoney Sells left the city. On returning in November from the trip with the circus, he was met at the depot by his brother Iewis, his daughter Flor ence and Mrs. Sells. That evening he called on Attorney Sater at his residence. Later that evening Mr. Safer called at the residence. On the morning following his return he talked with the servants. On Saturday, the day after his return, he had a talk with his daughter Florence, and told her what he had learned. A JURY TODAY. Evidence in Morrison Murder Trial Will Begin Shortly. El Dorado, Nov. 28. It begins to look now as if a jury to try Jessie Morrison for the murder of Clara Wiley Castle would be secured today. The special venire of 181, which was secured Mon day night, was begun on when court opened at 11 o'clock Tuesday. At 8 o'clock, when Judge Shinn adjourned court sixty-five of these men had been passed for cause and three accepted. In the afternoon the defense landed a solar plexus blow on Mr. Holford's pros pects as a Juror. At 3 o'clock H. W. Schumacher, one of the attorneys for the defense, received a telephone call while the court was in brief recess pur porting to be from J. W. Riffe of Au gusta. Mr. Riffe, so Mr. Schumacher said, told him that Mrs. T. I). Cody, wife of a. farmer living three miles east of Augusta, had said that Holford had borrowed a paper containing the ac counts of the Morrison case from them and had stated freely that MiBB Morri son should be punished, as she was guilty. The lawyers for the defense asked for time in which to subpoena Mr. and Mrs. Cody. Judge Shinn stroked his beard. "Rather than delay this case another day I will excuse Mr. Holford for cause," he said. The attorneys for the defense smiled at their final victory over Holford, who was not given a chance to deny the Riffe-Cody story. It is said that Mr. Cody Is a relative of W. F. Cody ("Buf falo Bill"). The coat of the Morrison case to But ler county is assuming big proportions. Court has been in session seven days and as yet no jury has been selected. The cost so far of securing veniremen has reached $2,000 and the people are begin ning to grumble. They say the work is going entirely too slow. There are 100 witnesses subpoenaed and they are piling up fees at the rate of Jl a day each. This takes the sentiment out of the Morrison case for the tax payers of the county. To be sure, most of them have been summoned as jurymen and have neen the defendant and her rela tives and the Castles and Wlleya, but they do not think the game is worth the candle. The music of a band which paraded the streets of El Dorado drew Olln Castie from his seat in the court house, where he has been watching the pro ceedings and he walked toward where , the band was playing, puffing away at a cigarette. Castle is leader of the local band and music has a strange power over him. In the band he was associ ated with a brother of the young woman who is charged with having killed his wife. J. T. Evans, assistant cashier of the Farmers and Merchants bank of El Dorado was one of the Jurors called in the needed venire. "Have you formed or expressed an opinion of the guilt or innocence of the defendant?" asked Prosecutor Brum back of .Mr. Evans. "I don't know," replied Mr. Tvans, "but when I went home at noon my wife said I had." The remark caused a ripple of laughter and Judge Shinn excused Evans. Despite the rain that fell in the after noon, the courtroom wag crowded. Miss Morrison has a careworn expression and she seldom smiles when some funny circumstances happen, as she did when the trial began. Olin Castle's face also shows deeper traces of worry than ever before. T. B. Murdock, editor of the Re publican, was summoned as a juror.but was excused. He has lived In El Dorado thirty years, and was never a witness in any court other than a justice court, and waa never summoned as a Juror before.

CORN Early devel opments today touching the November corn "squeeze" left the situation unchang edPhillips, the bull leader in control, and shorts on the anxious seat. Addition to the contract stock over night were only 60,000 bushels, 50,000 bushels of M from private elevators and the remaiiider, 13 cars, included in today's receipts, 294 cars. Trade was very quiet early, however, and prices easier, shorts evidently awaiting the "eleventh hour" before covering their lines. November corn opened c lower to unchanged at 491i to 50c, and declined to 4flc. December opened a shade higher at SWic to 36c, and alter touching a6ViU Vic, sold to 35?4c.

The bulk of trade, however, has been changing of the December over into May and January, with the difference changing but little from that of yesterday. Liver pool cables were not very active and cash business light at this point, although low grade wheat were quotably better. Brad street's was about as looked for and caus ed but little comment. Seaboard reported ten loads for export. The northwest sit uation on flour remains unchanged, with receipts still running lighter man last year. Very little stir over the fact that a holiday tomorrow as local traders have been inclined to keep close to market for pat week. CORN The feature In corn has been the apparent abandonment of the November deal, the price dropping from 50 to 40c. Phillips says he made some settlements last night on about 650.
