COTTON DROPS On Strength, of the Government Crop Report New Orleans, La., Dec 10. The bu reau report came like a thunder clap to the local cotton market today. It had been eagerly anticipated, but be fore it was read on the floor of the ex change at 11 o'clock there were perhaps not a half dozen members of that body who believed that it would exceed nine millions and three-quarters. When the figures 10.100.000 were given, the effect on the market was instantaneous. It dropped like a flash. In less than five minutes from the reading of the report March contracts declined 53 points, from 9.40 to 8.87. w hile May during the same time went from 9.33 to 9.00. It was shown therefore that the greatest weak ness is in the near months. After the sensational decline the market showed a disposition to rally and to reach a level again. Marries Astor's Grandson.

XO "STFaP" TAXATION. Property Taken Into City Mast Sot Be Taxed This iear. Territory North of SecondStreet Not Legally Acquired. Judge Ildizen. rendered two Important decisions this morning in so far as the city is concerned. The cases were Felt va. City of Topeka which is known as the "Strip" cae and was f i i el to prevent the city collecting- taxes on the newly an nexed territory; the other was The City of Topeka. vs. FTank Murphy, which, is one of the joint case?. Jn both cases the decision was against the city. The first case upon which the judge ren dered a decision was the case of E. J. Feit, et ai., vs. The City of Topeka. The plaintiffs asked fur an injunction against the city restraining them from collecting city tax and school tax upon their prop erty, which had been annexed to the city last August. The plaintiffs claimed that they had not been legally annexed and that their property had not been legally assessed by the city assessor. In his decision Judge Hazen held that a. part of the property taken in the city by the ordinances which passed the council last August was not legally annexed, be cause it did not touch the city. It seems that the city engineer's department mad a mistake and left a tract of land forty feet Wide between the old lines of the citv limit and the property they proposed to- annex. The judge held that this prop ertv, which is that portion of the annexed territorv Iving north of Second street, was not a portion of the city, but he did not sav anything about the balance of the property annexed, which is taken by the city authorities to mean that this strip was the only part illegally annexed. The judue decided that the city assessor had not really viewed the. property, but had made his assessment from the rec ords f!e-i by the township assessor, which is c!?ariv illegal. "The township officers had made their arrangement for the school year and the city comes in in August and attempts to take half of the money. This would be an Injustice and is not in accordance with the law which requires that the assess ments be made before the city took in the property, hence the city can not tax the propertv for this year." City Attorney Bird sttld the effect of the decision would be that the city could not collect the taxes for this year, but that they could do so after the first of March. "The strip of land which was annexed by an ordinance lying south of Second stret-t will require a not her ordinance before we can take it in. but that we can easily do before next year." In the case of City of Topeka vs. Frank Murphy the judge said he had taken tha case as one of the seventy cases which were the same and would give his deci sion on the one case letting it apply to the others. The case was appealed from the police Court and was one .f the many which Wr-re made under the search, and" seizure Hazn's opinion wa? in part as following; The questions at issue in the case arise upon a motion to quah the complaint and also a motion to dismiss the C4ue and lLschar-w the det"esidant. "The case tiled in the police court shows that the defendant wa charged with vio lating ordinance Xo. 2otjl, was arrested on a warrant for violating the same ordi nance and sentenced in the police court for violating that ordinance. Since the trial and conviction in the police court the court of appeals has decided that tni3 ordinancec is void, and that decision is binding upon the district court."' The judge cited a few decisions to show that the court had only appellate jurisdic tion in cases of this kind and then said: "It aypears from these authorities that the complaint mu?t charge the accused with viola ting the ordinance of the city, and where it charges the violation of a particular ordinance, such as the cae at bar. the defendant must he tried tinder that particular ordinance. Thp city charg ed the violation of this particular ordi nance and the defendant can not be tried for violating some other ordinance of the ci t y. "In this case the defendant was charg ed, arrested and tried in the police court for a violation of ordinance Xo. and from that conviction he appealed to this court, and must be tried under the same ordinance- The court of eppea!s having heid this ordinance void, the defendant therefore wrongfully charged, tried, and convicted and this court, having no power or authority to try him for violation of any ordinance, it follows that the defend, ant must be discharged." City Attorney Hird excepted to the de cision ana" gave notice that he would ap peal the ca-se to the supreme court. ;f he was not satisfied with the f eciainn of the court of appeals on validity of the ordinance. This affects 110 appeal casts. R. F. Hayden, attorney for the joint ists, asked that the other joint cases he dismissed and Mr. Bird objected. The judge said he thought he had no right to hold the cases over, as they were crimi nal cases, but said he would withhold his opinion of the question until tomorrow morning. SMASHES UP A DEPOT. Insane Man Burns Clothes andThreat ena Intending Passengers. Marinette, Wis.. Der. 10 Thomas Murray, a young man whose home is at Mass City, Mich., was sent to his home yesterday.

Topeka Actress Talks of Her Work and Success. "Oh, you can not imagine how Klad I am to be in dear old Topeka again." exclaimed Miss Ethelyn Palmer this morning; when seen by a State Journal reporter. "-I have dreamed of this and planned for it for months, but now that the time has come for me to appear be fore a Topeka audience. I am very nervous. I got up this morning with a bad cold and a splitting headache, but I am not going- to worry any more, sim ply do my best, and that is all any one can do." Since last summer Miss Palmer has been playing the leadine role with Frank Tannehill in "A TounfT Wife" and has been successful in the part. "How did I happen to take such a part as this? it was very amusing. I was reentered with a theatrical society in New York, and one day when I went for my mail the manager asked me If I should like to play a part where they had to follow me around with a mop and bucket to mop up my tears. He was s:j droll that, I said yes, and he intro duced me to Mr. Tannehili's father.who was a dear old man; I always make a go with women and old men. He told me about the part and asked me to go and see his son: I did not wish to go then but after much urging I consented and when I saw Frank Tannehill it was1 another case of Trilby for I was fasci nated with him and was wild for the part. He said to come the next day and if I could read the script satisfactorily I could have the part: my reading pleased him and the consequences are that I have signed with him for three years. Owing to my likeness to Mrs. Leslie Carter it was first thought that I should be booked as Mrs. Leslie Car ter's double but that was flnaily given up. "Ever since I have been upon the stage I have had little dashes of success but this is the first year that I have been successful right straight along, and it is all due to Mr. Tannehill for he is an ideal manager and has worked long and faithfully with me, and I feel that I have the ability to play the part. At first the critics said that I would make a success with melodrama but not in emotional parts, as I was too cold and had not enough feeling. I re alized that I did not do the part justice but finally one night in St. Paul I struck the. keynote and since then I have suc ceeded. "This has been such a delightful year; we started last summer from New York, went up through the mountains to Can ada, through the far northwest, down the coast, then straight to Topeka; from here we go south and after that there is no place in the United States that I will not have visited except the Yellow stone Park: we always visit the places of interest and have such good times." Miss Palmer has received many tlatter ing press notices. Miss Edna Dorman of Milwaukee, who takes the part of the maid, is Miss Palmer's companion and Is visiting with her at her home. The costumes Miss Palmer wears are exceptionally handsome: two of thm are imported. The one she wears in the first act i3 of cream silk veiled in chif fon: this serves as a foundation for the real lace over dress which is trimmed with a touch of pink and yellow velvet. The neglige gown in the last act is also imported. When asked about her cos tumes she laughed and said: '"Yes, they are expensive, but when I bought them I knew that I was coming to To peka and I selected them with that ob ject in view." Miss Palmer is a crack shot and car ries with her a dainty 1'ttle revolver with a mother of pearl handle presented to her by a western admirer; she has a larger ore. however, which would prob ably prove more effective, and she says that they prove very safe companions. Miss Palmer is a charming young wo man and when talking of her profession her face lights up and she is wonder fully pretty. Xext year Miss Palmer i3 to have the leading part in "Money King." and the next year it Is sail that she will have a play of her own. ICE BREAKING BOAT. Duluth Inventor to Explain theSIerita of His Craft to Canadians. Duluth. Minn., Dec. 10. Captain B. B. Inman of this city leaves tomorrow for Montreal, where he will on next Wed nesday explain before the Chamber of Commerce of that city his proposed ice crushing boat. Captain Inman claims that with this new craft it will be post-i-ble to keep navigation open on the great lakes the year round. A company was formed some time ago for the purpose of building boats of this description and Sl.iyo.nnO was subscribed for that pur pose.

HUMOR OF THE DAY. "Tommy, how did you get the back of your neck sunburned?" "Pullin' weeds in the garden." "But your hair is all wet, my son." "That's perspiration." "Your vest Is on wrong side out, too." "Put it on that way a-purpose." "And how does it happen. Tommy dear, that you have got Jack Howard's trousers on?" Tommy (after a long pause) Mother, I can not tell a lie! I've been a-swim-mln". Stray Stories. "I allers was agin these race tracks, an' now I'm more opposed to 'em than ever," exclaimed Mrs. Sapmind, throw ing down the morning paper. "Why so?" mildly inquired Mr. Sap mind. " 'Cause the paper proves what ter rible things the excitement of racin' w ill make men do to one another." "What does it say about them?" asked Mr. S. in the same indifferent tone. "Why." rather excitedly replied Mrs. S.. "it says that one of the men shot a head of the other." Boston Courier. "How is Ponsonby's boy making out at college?"
