Fusinfss Office Bell 'hor, 25 Reporters- Room Bell 'Phone 677 Neeley and Rathbone are? now being classed among the mysterious disap pearances. The St. Louis newspapers are having hard work trying to coax enough money out of the eitizens to start the, -world's fair. Haverhill, Mass., has grown tired of her socialist mayor after he had served two terms and at the election' last week replaced him with a Republican. If Mr. Pettisrew shall succeed in talk ing the subsidy bill to death, as he promises to do. his senatorial term will not have been wholly in vain. The Philadelphia Record suggests thai the subsidy bill which was taken up un der the head of "unfinished business" should remain unfinished business. The problem before congress appears to be to make a show oi reducing the taxes without at the same time interfering with any of the proposed appropriations. C.en. Buller Is reminded that another Christmas is almost here, when he will have an opportunity to eat that dinner In Pretoria which he promised iimseir bo long ago. There appears to be a determination on the part of the present congress to leave as little as possible for the suc ceeding body to do in the way of voting appropriations. Joe Manley is willing to take that Job which the president has offered him pro vided it can be held up until he is entire ly ready for it. There are othere who would willingly accept it now and ask no questions. New Tork World: Senator Vrye. from the ship-building state of Maine, is go ing to have the hardest kind of work peisuading the wesieru farmer that a tax on the farmer to pay a. subsidy to the fast-ship owner is really for the ben efit of agriculture. The president says that the reduction of S30.000.0CO in the excessive taxation of $m-).0i0.O) annually "should be secured by the remission of those taxes which experience has shown to be the most burdensome to the industries of the peo ple." The ways and means committee appears to think that this applies to the beer drinking industry but not to the tea drinking industry. WOMAN SUFFRAGE A SUCCESS. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch gives its endorsement, slightly qualified, to wo man suffrage in the following editorial review of the woman vote In the recent election: The women of Colorado, "Wyoming, ITtah and Idaho seemed to know what they were about on the 6th of Novem ber. In 'Wyoming. John T. Thompson, can didate for congress, was quoted as hav ing said that "the woman's vote was the easiest to get, the easiest to hold and the easiest to manipulate." He denied that he ever uttered this reflection on woman's independence, but it did him no good. He was snowed under by fem inine ballots, running 800 behind his ticket-Senator "Wolcott of Colorado, whose term expires next March, was a candi date for re-election. An anti-Wolcott legislature was returned by women's votes. They didn't like the figure the senator cut in recent divorce proceed ings. A woman ran for the state legislature In Utah on the Democratic ticket. S.I e was beaten because a majority of the women of the district were Republicans, and they stood by their party against their sex. On the whole equal suffrage seems to have worked well In the states named. Political education among women is not in a backward state. Failure will eom-, if It conies at all, from indifference to political affairs rather than from want of understanding. BEWARE OF THE SUBSIDY BILL From the Chicago Tribune.! Already there is much uneasiness manifest among the people over the suggestion that war taxes shall be con tinued In order that J9.000.000 a year may be turned over to mine-owners, shipbuilders, and other rich men, for the most part living In the east, while It has not as yet been demonstrated that a particle of benefit will accrue to any agricultural interest, nor much if any to the manufacturing interests of the middle west. It may be that some producers on the seaboard will be en abled to transport their commodities to foreign markets at a lower rate than at present. This will not be the case as to the west, which is handicapped, so far as the sale of manufactured pro ducts in foreign markets is concerned, by its distance from the seaboard and the cost of railroad transportation. Nor has any sufficient reason been ad vanced why the money of the people Rliould be used to subsidize particular private commercial interests. The word "subsidy" is odious to the people. It is itself enough to damn any measure to which it is attached. That word has killed more than one statesman. Sen ator Pomeroy of Kansas was known to his dying day as "Subsidy Pom." A nickname of that kind, which sticks and stings forever, may be attached to some of the statesmen who propose to vote for this Indefansfble bill now be fore the senate. That bill will slay more political rep utations la the ei than any measure which has been before congress since the salary grab law of 1873. It will oust from their comfortable seat3 in the na tional legislature a number of gentle men who feel secure now. They will not be so secure under the new apportion ments which will be made in most of the states next year. There is a narrow Republican margin in the house at the best. It will be sur prising if a sufficient number of votes can be mustered in that body to pass a bill so indefensible in its nature and so hateful to the common people not hate ful necessarily to the rich people who have large bank accounts and who have money invested in mines, steamship line, and large manufacturing enter prises, but altogether hateful to the peo ple who work with their hands or are merely well-to-do. There was a great outcry during the late campaign against the e 'tempt of Mr. Bryan to make an appeal to class distinctions and to excite class animosi ties. The object of the present congress seems to be to rush through, under wnip and spur, in the expiring hours of a congress not fresh from the people and out of touch with them, a bill embody ing class legislation which will justify in some measure Mr. Bryan s class ap peal. That appeal was not unsuccessful in the large cities of the united States, both east and west. It was notably suc cessful in Chicago All the advantages were on the side of the Republicans so far as the great issues of the campaign were concerned. Yet they were only able to carry this city by the poor plur ality of 7,619. If there is a change In issues, the sound money question disappearing from the scene the gold Democrats go ing back to their natural party affilia tions and the "subsidy" issue has to be confronted instead of the money issue, there will not be a Republican plurali ty in Chicago In 1902 and fewer Repub lican representatives will be elected from this part of the state than were elected last month. GLOBE SIGHTS. From the Atchison Globe. J It is said of nearly every preacher that his friends are very loyal, and his enemies are very bitter. To the average person of any age, the future is rosy enough if it contains a promise of a good beefsteak for sup per. When a man picks up a newspaper, a woman is reminded of a day's accumu lation of questions she wants to ask him. The first lesson for a boy to learn in saving his money Is to resist the hints of his sisters every time he earns a dollar. Every girl who gets married has trouble with a former sweetheart of her husband. Mrs. Olin, Castle is not the only case. Men understand why old maids trust in the Lord, but they can't understand why married women need any one but their husbands. The last criticism a woman makes to her lover before marriage is about her kin, and the first she makes after her marriage is about his. The women are making a new kind of plum pudding, and it stays in the same place in the stomach from fall until late in the spring. When a woman tells her husband Bhe wants a "plain talk with him," it is notice for him to clear the deck and get his guns ready for action. In theory, the best business opening in this town seems to be a tea store. The figures are unanswerable; there is money in a tea store, but as a matter of fact, every tea store started In this town has failed. A rule of an Atchison card club is to have only two things for refreshments. A member recently interpreted it thus: One thing, drinks coffee and choco late; other thing, eatables sandwiches, turkey, cakes, ice cream and candy. You can't change a woman whose mind is set on entertaining company. Some of the women have queer no tions about getting married. An ac tress is telling around that she is en gaged to Jim Jeffries, the prize fighter. Jeffries denies the story, and says the actress knew she lied when she made the statement. Jeffries is being criti cised for his ungallant talk, but re plies that when a woman lies deliber ately and maliciously, the only way to say so is to say so. POINTED PARAGRAPHS. From the Chicago News. A set of false teeth is an emblem of time. The man who possesses a million is a capital fellow. Every littls vice ia the subject of a lot of advice Many a married man who isn't ex actly smart is shrewed. The baker may not want for bread, but he has his hour of knead. Love doesn't laugh at the minister, and he is love's lock-smith. A schoolboy says there are too many switches on the road to knowledge. It is the acme of impoliteness for ruin to stare a man in the face. When a tricky jockey holds the reins the race isn't always to the BWift. Some men are so very good that It is a question what they are good for. When it comes to word painting the sign painter is at the top of the ladder. In the pulpit and on the stage the supply is often inadequate to the de mand. Love makes the world go round only when the lovers are intoxicated with happiness. A sporting man says the only way It is possible to beat the weather reports is to play them to lose. The north pole is much like a wo man's pocket. We all know where it should be, but we can't find It, When one woman is inclined to be charitable and doesn't care to express her opinion of another she merely says she is queer. QUAKER REFLECTIONS. From the Philadelphia Record. The people who Indulge in sour grapes deserve to look seedy. The successful pickpocket is obliged to keep in touch with the public. Some young men who pose as literary lions are really nothing more than cube. Wigg "Why do you call him a men tal agriculturist?" Wagg "He culti vates bis mind. Hoax "The fellow- who sold me that mule said he was gentle, and the ani mal not only kicks but bites." Joax "Well, it's a poor mule that won't work both ways," The young man who keeps his eyes open isn't the one who requires an eye- opener in the morning. The young man's mother had come tn nail n hla lnV.,lna la aln-QVtt talking about the delicious coffee you usea io matte, soDDea tne young w ii.c "It's hereditary." replied Charles' moth er; "his father used to talk the same way about hi3 mother's coffee." The absent-minded man was near lng the railroad station. "There! I knew I had forgotten something." he ex claimed to his wife." "Why, I'm sure we have everything," she replied; "what is it you ve forgotten? The absent minded man pressed his brow. "Bless my soul!" he cried; "I've forgotten where we intended going. GREATBATTLE. Reported in Progress Between Boers and British. London, Dee. 10. The Evening Stan dard which has special sources of Infor mation says this evening a great battle between the British forces under Gen. Knox and the Boers under Gen. De Wet is going on. ABANDON BIG CLAIMS. Demand For Penalties of Two Million Dollars to Be Dropped. New York, Dec. 10. Owing to the in fluence of Frank H. Piatt, eldest son of Thomas C. Piatt, the Republican leader In New York, this state's claims against Armour & Co., amounting to $1,729,000, are about to be abandoned. The amount represents penalties claimed by the state for the alleged il legal sale of oleomargarine here in 1894. A similar claim against the G. H. Ham mond company for $579,700 is also to be dropped. While an effort to compromise the claims against Armour & Co.. was being made a few years ago, the records nec essary to prove the claims.were destroy ed bk the New YorK Central railway and other transportation companies. Chauncejr M.Depew was the active pres ident of the New York Central at the time. He is now the colleague of Thos. C Piatt in the United States senate. Frank II. Piatt is the representative of Armour & Co. He has never made any secret of that fact. Indeed, acting for Armour he once offered to pay the state t-'t.uuo to arop tne cases. The Republican governor of New York at that time, Frank S. Black, refused to agree to such a settlement, and he was beaten for renomination and retired from polities. His relations with mem bers ot the Piatt family have been strained ever since, though there was some semblance of a reconciliation prior to tne presidential election, when Mr. Black was prevailed upon to nominate B. B. Odell, Jr., for governor at the Re publican state convention. rhe peculiar transactions which have marked the oleomargarine claims con stitute a grave scandal, the extent of which is just being understood. The proposition to abandon the claims will doubtless be fought. but the Republicans control at Aioany by an overwhelming majority, and this majority is under the control of Senator Piatt, whose son is counsel for Armour & Co., and also for the Hammond company. FLOWERS AND MONEY. Sent by Unknown Admirers to Hiss Morrison, Kansas City, Dec. 10. A special to the Star from El Dorado says: Judge Redden kept the prisoner and the audience in tears. He was there, he said, in the defense of womanhood. He spoke of the emphasis which the state's attorneys had laid upon the loss in. the Castle home, and said: "If heaven is nearer because of the other one, there where the breath is the breath of purity, do you believe that the spirit would want you to send to a gallows that young girl?" Judge Redden pointed his finger at Jessie Morrison. She was wiping away tears ana nearly every woman in the court room bowed their heads and cov ered their eyes. Judge. Redden con tinued: "Incarceration In the penitentiary means death to this defendant. It means an end to what five months in the county jail has already commenced doing, breaking down the health of a girl who was young and fresh and buoyant last sprin.g. Then he addressed a ehort speech of appeal to each juror. At noon Judge Redden was interrupted by recess. When Jessie Morrison returned to her cell she found three large boxes of flowers from Kansas City, St. Joseph and Council Bluffs, la., admirers, and a letter from a Newtown. Mo., man. a stranger of the Morrison family, extend ing his sympathy and sending a ten dollar bill for the prisoner. STOLE A $15 HORSE. Wm, Edal Must Go to Nebraska to Answer For the Offense. Governor Stanley today honored a requisition from Governor Poynter of Nebraska for William Edal, alias John Thorn, in jail at Marysville, but wanted in Omaha for horse stealing. The complaint recites that the horse which the man stole was worth "the actual value of $15." Sheriff W. H. Dunn obtained the necessary papers and has gone to Marysville to take Edal back for prosecution. TO SATE FROM THE AXE. Millionaire Buys Extensive Woodland to Keep It Intact. Poughkeepsie, N. Y., Dec. 10. Colonel John Jacob Astor has purchased one hun dred acres of woodland from the farms ot Oeorge Essiestyn, Robert Snvder and Cornelius Snyder, all of Rhinebeck. The land adjoins Ferncliff. Colonel Astor's summer home, and ia covered with fine trees. It is said that Colonel Astor's motive in purchasing the property is to save the trees from the axe. Big Pile of Coal on Fire. Houghton, Mich., Dec. 10. Fire broke out at noon today in the Calumet and Hecla coal shed No. 1, at South Lake Linden, caused by spontaneous combus tion. A large force of men is fighting the flames, which are nearly in the cen ter of the big building. Dense volumes of gas and smoke are pouring out of the shed .rendering the firemen's labors arduous, and making it impossible to judge whether the tire is gaining or not. The shed contains 100,000 tons of coal. New Kansas Postmasters. Washington. D. C, Dec. 10. The fol lowing changes of four-class postmast ers have been made for Kansas: Brad ford, Wabaunsee county, F. Trowbridge, vice R. B. Carris, removed; Coburn, Franklin county, S, C. Smith, vice E. Hodle, resigned. STOP RIGHT HERE. M. A. Low, H. P. Dillon and Others Greatly Surprised. Game Wardens Compel Them to Leave Game Behind. HAD 90 DOZEN QUAIL. Question Submitted to a Federal Judge. He Said They Must Leave Game In Territory. Gracefully Submitted and Came Home Empty Handed. M. A. Low, H. P. Dillon, W. A. L. Thompson, Eugene Quinton and other Topeka men brought no game with them when they arrived in Topeka Sun day afternoon in private car 212, from their Indian Territory hunt. Cause: Game wardens and federal law. The fruits of the three weeks' hunt were 90 dozen quail but they were all left at El Reno upon the urgent request or fed eral officials. Lawyers, merchants, -sportsmen, all, comprising the hunting party from To peka that has been on a hunt in Okla homa for the .past three weeks came home Sunday afternoon without any trophies of the chase. They bagged a great amount of game. The federal law kept it in the Territory. It wasn't to be told in Topeka. But that was an undertaking too big to ac complish. The party consisted of M. A. Low, general attorney for the Rock Island; H. P. Dillon, master in chancery of the U. S. court; R. W. Blair, assistant at torney of the Union Pacific; E. S. Quin ton, Esq., W. A. L. Thompson and G. W. Stansfield, two of Topeka's well known merchants, and Dean R. Low, Esq. For nearly three weeks these dis tinguished Topeka sportsmen hunted in the Wichita mountains. They left the Rock Island at Fort Cobb and camped in the Kiowa-Comanche country. Game was plenty, good sport resulted. and big bags were made. Some of the tender skinned were sunburned, others tanned. All report immense enjoyment of the outing. In Topeka anxious friends waited in vain for their promised turkeys, quail, rabbits and catfish. One Thanksgiving dinner had to descend to common tur key because the promised quail did not come from the Territory. These unfulfilled hopes were over looked. All was anticipation for the home-coming. In fancy could be seen the red-coated private car bowling homeward over the rails bedecked with garlands and hidden from sight under the load of bob whites, prairie hens, tur keys and other feathered denizens of the virgin Oklahoma forest. Some expect ed even a sight of venison or the pelt of big game. 1 When; they arrived it was empty- handed. Their desire was different. At torneys and United States court dig nitary and merchants had been held up by the federal authorities. Game ward ens admonished them that the game could not be taken out of the Territory. Hoping against hope, the party wired the district judge to settle a point. The law says not to "ship." Wouldn't carry ing it out in a private car be without the pale of the law? "No," was the judge's decision. Reluctantly the game was left behind at rJl Reno, witn At torney Blake, of the Rock Island, for distribution to friends. Three gunny sacks full was the total. In quail alone there were 90 dozen. MUDGE DENIES IT. Says Santa Fe Doesn't Want Strikers Back. Wichita,Kan., Dec. 10. Mr.J. A. New man has sent the following personal message to H. U. Mudge at Topeka: 'Am surprised that the officials of the Santa Fe should resort to such disrepu table tactics as forging my name to tel egrams endeavoring to get the men back to work. "J. A. NEWMAN." Mr. Mudge at 3 o'clock said he had not received this message. "It is absurd for him to say that the company would do as he charges and almost too silly to denv. We don't want the men back, won't have them back. We have enough with those on hand and applications in now." LOST TRAIN FOUND. Santa Fe "Limited" Discovered at La Jnnta. Tt was reported early this afternoon that No. 4. the California limited, due here at 12:53 a. m.. was lost. The offi cials looked up the rumor received and gave out the report that the train al leged to be lost had just left La Junta 25 minutes late. "Not a loaded car has accumulated for us at a division point today," said Mr. Resseguie this afternoon: "We are mov ing everything. All freights have been run. The number of freight trains run are as follows: Chicago division. 54: eastern division, all business offered; middle division. 26; west ern division, 22: New Mexico division, 2s; Rio Grande division, 18; Oklahoma divi sion, 11: Southern Kansas division, is; Panhandle, division, 7; Southern Kansas and Texas, 2. NEW T0WNSITE RULING. Recent Decision Said to Have Opened the Door to Extensive Frauds. Washington. D. C, Dec. 10. The atten tion of members of congress from the southwestern states has been attracted during the past vk to a decision of the interior department in relation to the appraisement of lots in townsites. The de cision in question was made in a case from Wagner, and is to the effect that the appraisement should be made wltlj regard to the improvements, which are now in existence, and not those existing at the time when- the first plats of the town were drawn. This decision is diametrically opposite to the position which was taken by the In dian office in previous cases, and opens up some possibilities in the development of the new towns in the southwest, which have not existed hitherto. Previous to the decision in question the appraisers, in fix ing the value of lots, took into consider ation only the value ' f the ground, but where improvements nave been made there was a provision in the bill under which the work is being done to the ef fect that the occupant of the improved lot could acquire it at 50 per cent of the appraised value. If the decision just m-tde is adhered to it will open the road to spec ulative enterprise, as a hut or shanty can be erected and improvement claimed.

How It Started and Spread in U.S. Army Camps. Washington, Dec. 10 Surgeon General Sternburg made public today a report upon the origin and spread of typhoid fever in the United States military camps during the Spanish war of 1S9S, prepared at his instance by a board consisting of Major Walter Reed, sur geon, U. S. A., Major Victor C. Vaughan, division surgeon, U. S. V., and Major Edward O. Shakespeare, brigade sur geon, U. S. V. The surgeon general prefaces the report by calling attention to the vast amount of work the medical corps was called upon to perform during the war in order to cope with the tre mendous increase of the army in the field, and comments upon the wide spread prevalence of typhoid in 1898, 20, 000 cases of this disease appearing among the troops encamped within the limits of the United States, from May until September of that year. A general summary of the conclusions reached by the board indicates that dur ing the Spanish war every regiment constituting the first, second, third. fourth, fifth and seventh army corps de veloped typhoid fever, this being true of both the volunteer and regular com mands. More than 90 per cent, of the volunteer regiments are shown to have developed typhoid within eight weeks after going into camp, and the fever developed also in certain of the regular resriments within three to five weeks after the tents went up. Typhoid be came epidemic in all camps, large and small, north and south, and was found to be so widely distributed in this coun try that one or more cases are likely to appear in any regiment within eight weeks after assembly, whether on the march or stationary. It is also stated that with typhoid fever as widely disseminated as it is in this country the chances are that if a regiment of 1,300 men should be as sembled in any section and kept in a camp having the most perfect sanitary conditions, one or more cases of the fever would develop. Nevertheless it was found that many commands during the war were unwisely located; that the space allotted to regiments was in some instances entirely inadequate, and that many regiments were allowed to remain on one site too long. There were regiments at Chicka mauga which did not move a tent from the time of their arrival in May to their departure late in August. Requests for changes in location made by medical officers on account of the unfit condi tion of the camps in question were not always granted. In some instances camps were sef up in the face of earnest protests from medical officers, who pro tested against the sanitary unfitness of the sites selected. The camps became very filthy in general, it is stated, and line officers are thus held responsible to some extent for the unsanitary condi tions that developed. In this connection the board suggests that greater author ity be given medical officers In ques tions relating to the hygiene of camps. The board condemns in general the method of disposing of the excretions of the human body and fecal matter, holding that a lack of proper facilities in thrs respect was in large measure re sponsible for the prevalence of fever in the camps. Where water carriage can not be secured in permanent camps, it is suggested that all fecal matter be disinfected and then carted way from the camp, and the board has made a special recommendation that galvanized iron troughs containing milk of lime be utilized for this purpose. Infected water was found to be an unimportant factor in the spread of typhoid in the national encampments of 1898. At Chickamauga, Jacksonville. Camps Alger and Meade, contaminating water Is stated to have played but a small part In spreading the fever. To guard against the contamination of the water supply, however, facilities for the sterilization of water for troops in the field are recommended. Flies, which swarmed over Infected fecal matter in the camp pits are be lieved to have been transmitters of typhoid bacillus. It has been conclu sively settled that a company badly in fecte'd with typhoid can not rid itself of the infection by simply changing its location, as it carries with it the spe cific agents of the disease in the bodies of its men and in their clothing, bed ding and tentage. Indeed, it has been found that an extended ocean voyage does not avail, but that a complete dis infection of men and effects is absolutely necessary. Except where urgent emergency makes it necessary the board urges that one command should not be located upon a site recently occupied and va cated by another. It is urged that the 7.

GUILD) MUSIC CO;. ! soldier's bed should be raised from the ground for the men are reported to have slept in dust piles possibly infected with typhoid germs, and also that the soldiers be made to remove their outer clothing at night wherever possible. Malaria was not a prevalent disease among the camps during the war, al though many short attacks of typhoid were generally diagnosed as some form of malarial feevr. Altogether about one-fifth of the soldiers in the national encampments during the Spanish war developed typhoid , about half of the cases being correctly diagnosed by the army surgeons. The death rate was 7.61 per cent., and the average period of incubation was found to bo about ten and one-half days. N E A RLY ALL FILLED. General Manager Mudge summed up the strike situation to the Kansas City union depot terminal superintendent late this afternoon in the following tele gram: H. W. Sharp, Kansas City.
