C0H3 TO C-"S ST0S.S EVEST DAT NOW TILL CSUXSTMAS. TO SAIL FOR HOME. Tuesday Fixed For Departure of the Canadian Contingent New York, Dec. 10. A dispatch to the Tribune from London says: The Canadian " contingent attended service yesterday in two detachments, one going to St. Paul's and the other to Brompton Oratory. "God Save the Queen" was sung in the cathedral with impressive effect, the voices of the eol liers ringing out high above the organ and choir. Chelsea hospital was vis ited during the afternoon, and there were last words with. Canadian friends Muring the evening. The regiment will take a special train for Liverpool this morning, and will have an official re ception there, with glimpses of docks and town shops. The Canadians will eleep on their steamship and will sail for home early on Tuesday. The recep tion of the heroes of Paardeburg has not Jieen marred by a single unpleasant epi sode, and the appearance and bearing of the officers and men have been great ly admired. The good faeling existing lietween them and the British regulars is noticeaole. They have fought side by Bide with the best regiments of the (British army, and a spirit of good fel lowship has been created which will be a. new bond in the queen's dominions. Military men resent the idea that there has been ruthless destruction of property by the British army in South Africa. They assert that Lord Roberts' and General Buller's orders were string ent on this subject, and that discipline tias been maintained by heavy penalties. iPole-Carew was the first general to or der the burning of a farm house, and thi3 was done in consequence of Boer treachery and a flagrant white flag out rage. The precedent was sanctioned by Lord Roberts, and the destruction of farms has been restricted to instances of similar treachery. Private property fr.as been scrupulously respected when ever there has been no justification for punitive acts. An illustration is cited of a penalty exacted from British offi cers under General Buller's command. They had entered a deserted farm house In the Orange River colony, and not finding wood with which to kindle a fire for having their dinner cooked, had torn down and split up a door, and had re plenished the fire with the wooden stand of a sewing machine. General Bundle, when complaint was made by the owner of the house, investigated the case, and assessed the damages at 40, which the officers were forced to pay. TRANSCONTINENTAL RATES Interstate Commerce CommissionWill Give Shippers a Hearing. New York, rec 10. Representatives from commercial interests in various sections of the country, principally from the Pacific coast, western and eastern states, will appear before the Interstate Commerce Commission in Washington today at a hearing to consider the mat ter of transcontinental rates and the concessions in such rates now being sought by middle western Jobbers,chief iy grocery and hardware firms. For pome time past strong efforts have been made by these interests and sev eral conferences with the railroads have -een held, to have the latter adopt a System of graded rates. If these efforts are successful Pacific coast rates, under the plan proposed, would always be higher from New York and San Fran cisco than to San Francisco from any point west of New York. Eastern job bing interests .are naturally working hard to prevent the establishment of, such a system. They will be represent ed at the hearing today, and J. M. Langiey. of the Merchants association, will appear in behalf of the New York shipping interests represented by the members of that organization. The western people axe advocating praded rates. That is. if a rate from Is'ew York to San Fiancisco happens to lie $1 per 100 pounds they contend that the rate from Pittsburg on the same froods should be approximately 90 cents, from Chicago SO cents, from Mississippi 9'tver 75 cents, and from Missouri river TO cents per 100 pounds, notwithstand ing the fact that the rate from New York is a forced rate and not a rate that is the result of normal conditions voluntarily established.

United States army, de parted last night for 'Washington, to appear before the congressional commit tee on appropriations to urge the neces sity of an allowance of $130,000 for the continuation of the work of buildm roads and bridges in Yellowstone Park. Captain Chittenden is in charge of this work, and during the last year has spent much of his time there. He took pho tographs, maps and drawings of im provements to demonstrate his claim to the committee. This is the largest amount ever asked of congress at one time for Yellowstone Park. FEARS HERESHOFF ALONE. Sir Thomas Lipton Cares Not For Other Fast Yacht Builders. New York, Dec. 10. A dispatch to the Journal and Advertiser from London says: Sir Thomas Lipton when informed of Thomas Lawson s announcement that he is determined to build a cup defender, .said: "Let them all come. I fear but one mane that magician Hereshoff. If he 'vas out of the way I can assure you the stars and stripes would not be wav ing so high, and that cup would long since have changed hands. Boston raturally wants to get a chance in the cap races. I certainly wouldn't object it she did try to defend the cup. The Ivew York Yacht club committee can pick any boat they please. I have to definitely select my boats months in advance. "They don't have to name the de fender until a week before sailing, so it's purely an American matter for the New York club to decide. Personally I fail to see why the club need build a new boat. Certainly they never heard me complain that the Columbia ran too slow. "But, seriously, Hereshoff is the one man that I am after. He is, I repeat, a magician in the designing and build ing of yachts. I would be interested to know something about the plans of Mr. Lawson. While I believe Hereshoff can turn out the best boats in America, still there is a possibility that some freak might be constructed which will beat the Columbia. "But Lawson's entering the game is a healthy sign. It shows the great, growing interest in yachting. "Work will proceed rapidly now on Shamrock II. Watson is giving all his time to pushing the construction. "'Whoever the other mysterious yacht building in Glasgow may belong to, you may positively say that she Is not mine, nor is she a possible cup challenger, for she will not be as fast as Shamrock II. Nor is she the Prince of Wales' boat My personal opinion is that she is be ing built for the kaiser." ' SHRINERS TO HONOLULU. Members of American Order Will Es tablish a Temple in Hawaii. Chicago, Dee. 10. A special to the Chronicle from Grand Rapids. Mich., says: Imperial Potentate Louis B. Winsor of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, is to go to Honolulu to institute a temple, and Saladin Temple of Western Michigan Oasis will furnish the escort for what promises to be one of the most notable pilgrimages on record. The Saladin Nob'es. with their wives, will start from Grand Rapids, February 2a, by a special train for" San Francisco, where California Nobles will join them and they will em bark on a specially chartered steamer for Hawaii. Two weeks will be spent in the islands. Saladin Nobles will be joined by Nobles of Chicago and other points and the party for the ocean voyage will number 350. Prize Fighter Destitute. New York, Dec. 10. Paddy Ryan, one time champion of the prize ring, is des titute. He has lost his speech and is suffering with Bright's disease. His friends have started a subscription for his benefit. The list is headed by John L. Sullivan. Sullivan's fight that made him champion was with Ryan.

The Topeka Golf club followed the example of the Kansas City club Saturday, and beat the Oread club in a sixteen hole match.

Topeka Ministers Discuss Next Sun day's Rally. The more than usual activity at Y. M. C. A. headquarters Sunday gave evi dence that something calling for spe cial effort was on the board. The lecture hall was packed. Secretary Lerrigo made a few explanatory remarks touch ing the purpose of the meeting and af ter giving Mr. H. R. Hilton a chance to announce the good citizens' mass meeting of next Tuesday evening, ask ed his audience to be particular to re members that there were to be two mass meetings and the date for that held by the Y. M. C. A. was Sunday, Dec. 16. Dr. Crannell of the First Baptist church presented "The value of the mass meeting to the churches." He showed the advantage of the united ef fort which this meeting involves and the opportunity it gives to show the magni tude of the church as a body, however small isolated congregations may at times appear. Dr. Countermine followed with "The Value of the Meeting to the Individual." The doctor was more impressive than usual. He spoke of the' awakening which Engineer McClure's story would undoubtedly bring to many a self-satisfied or dormant Christian. He empha sized the need of prayer for the suc cessful issue of the meeting and said that he had requested the women of the congregation to pray for it although they were denied any other participa tion in or admittance to the meeting. Several men who had heard Engineer McClure give his wonderful story spoke of the meetings which he had addressed, the wonderful spell which he had seem ed to cast over audiences. Rev. F. W. Emerson closed the meet ing with a strong address on "Personal Work." He spoke of a man's soul as "the greatest thing in the world," of the value of God'? masterpiece and the great joy of winning erring men. It was a fitting close to a meeting of such men, for such a purpose. Several thou sand tickets were called for at theclose of the meeting by men who wanted them for distribution during the week among the men who will wish to hear Engineer McClure next Sunday. The meeting in the auditorium is to be at 3 o'clock instead of 4 next Sunday. The officers of the Y. M. C. A. are greatly pleased with the success of their pre liminary meeting, and together with the ministers, who are all working as one in this matter, are happy in the prospect of not only an enormous suc cess in attendance but also in results. ENGLAND OPPOSED. Leading Members of the Ministry Ob ject to Canal Fortifications. New York, Dec. 10. The London cor respondent of the Tribune, writes: Senator Lodge is credited with having expressed the opinion that the British government will accept the amendment of the canal treaty and allow the Ignited States to fortify the ends of the Nicar agua waterway. The grounds on which he bases that opinion are not explained. The foreign office has not committed it self on the subject. and cannot be expect ed to do so until the question is brought forward in a diplomatic way. All the inferences of the case are against the additional concession which Senator Londge considers necessary. Lord Salisbury, Mr. Arthur Balfour. Mr. Chamberlain and other members of the ministry are known in diplomatic circles to have expressed themselves without equivocation. They have said that England would not consent to the fortification of the entrances to the ca nal. Only one English journal has in timated that it would be a matter of in difference to England whether the en trances were fortified or not. This is Ihe Spectator, a journal exceptionally favor able to America on all international questions. Senator Lodge has regarded apparently the Spectator as an organ of diplomatic opinion. whereas it repre sents English optimism and idealism, and is not in close touch with the for eign office. It is safe to infer that Sec retary Hay, while he was in London dis cussed the Oayton-Bulwer treaty and th TrTTicinlps of canal dinlomacv with Lord Salisbury And Mr. Balfour, and I knows how far they are prepared to go I PROBABLY RUSSIA'S NEXT CZAR, - r - 3 1 tfjx- t S - s : Grand Duke Michael Will Succeed to the Throne if Nicholas Dies Without in the revision of the Clayton-Bulwer treaty. PRIEST SUES BISHOP. Charges That He Was Kept From Earning a Livelihood. St. Louis, Dec. 10. Rev. B. Fresen borg, a priest of the Roman Catholic church,. without a parish, has begun suit against Rt. Rev. J. Janssen, bishop of the diocese of Belleville, 111., for $35,- 000. His complaint is that Bishop Jans sen has failed and refused to permit him to follow his profession as a priest thereby preventing hirn from earning a livelihood. It is said to be the only case of the kind ever brought to the at tention of a court of law or equity. A writ notifying Bishop Janssen that the action would be brought against him was taken out at Belleville today by at torneys for Father Fresenborg. In ac cordance with the Illinois law the peti tions setting forth the cause of action will be filed later. Lebbeus P. Crigler of St. Louis is of counsel for Father Fresenborg, and has possession of the documentary evidence on which the suit is based. STATES CASE OF HIS CLIENT. "We claim." said Mr. Crigler today, "that Bishop Janssen, by depriving our client of his right to earn a living in the diocese of Belleville, has prevented him from earning $10,000. and that be cause of the action of the bishop our client was forced to undergo hardships that resulted in the partial loss to him of the use of his legs, thereby inflicting injuries for which he is entitled to judg ment for $25,000. "Father Fresenborg Is 52 years old. He came to this country in 1S74 from Germany, where he was educated for the priesthood. He was for several years in the Alton, diocese, but in 1890 went to New York, where he had charge of a parish for several years. In 1S96 he was notified by Mgr. Satolli that he belonged in the Belleville diocese, and he straightway reported to Bishop Jans sen, asking that he be given work by which he could support himself. "Bishop Janssen failed to give him a place, and he was forced to wander over the country, celebrating mass and per forming the functions of a priest in parishes where there were no regular clergymen. "He finally went to Fargo, N. D., where he had charge of a small cnmmur.ity of churchmen. In -performing the duties of tils otnee ne was exposed to tne rury or a blizzard and so badly frozen that he was forced to go to a hospital in Chicago. There and at another hospital in New York he was operated on nine times in order to save his legs. The result was that he is lamed for life and has difficulty in going through the services in the man ner prescribed for priests. SAYS PENSION WAS OFFERED. "During 1SS6 and 1897 he wrote frequent ly to Bishop Janssen, insisting that he be provided with work as a priest of the Belleville diocese, but Bishop Janssen fail ed to give him employment. "In 1S9S Bishop Janssen appointed him to the pastorate of the church at Equals itv. III., where he served for over a year. Then he was suddenly ordered to Harri sonville. 111., a parish that pays only about one-third as much as Equality. He protested against this, and after several conferences with Bishop Janssen they agreed that he should be retired, sent back to Germany and given a pension. Bishop Janssen offered him $300 a year, but he insisted on having $!00. which is the sum usually allowed retired priests. After sev eral conferences and a consultation with me. Father Fresenborg agreed to accept the $30! proposition. Bishop Janssen had made it in writing I have his letter in my desk but he drew b:i.ck and refused to carry out his promise. On this we decided to bring sutt, and the preliminary steps were taken today." Father Fresenbore1 is said by Mr. Crigler to be staying at a St. Louis hotel, butthe lawyer declined to name the house. Alaska's Only Train Boy. From the Chicago Tribune. The old query as to whether or not you would like to be the iceman will be rapidly forgotten as soon as song writers and balladists learn about the train boy in Alaska. There is a train boy in Alaska. Just one. Or rather there was a few weeks ago, but by this time he may be somewhere in the Med- 4 ': , Male Issue. & ' V i I '' 1 ' ' j h, 1 i I STOVES ! STOVES! STOVES! The Greatest Bargains Ever Offered in Topeka "We have to make room for our Holiday Goods, -which will come in the last of this week. We will sell for this week only . iterranean on his private yacht blowing rings from his fifty-cent cigars, and swearing at his $5,000-a-year sailing master because he cannot whistle up a breeze. Think of being the only train boy on a railroad that brings miners with thou sands and thousands of dollars' worth of gold out of the greatest mining camp in the world. There is only one rail road to Alaska that is the White Pass and Yukon railroad. On that railroad there is a train called the Klondike lim ited. The Klondike limited! Isn't the sound of that name enough to make a com mon candy butcher on the run between Peoria and Lafayette, Ind., stick his head into his basket of salted peanuts and strangle himself to death? For there is a trainboy on the Klondike lim ited. On the Klondike limited, that brings prospectors and miners and ad venturers weighted down with golden nuggets back to the states and civiliza tion, and the girls they left behind them, there is a candy butcher. And all of these prospectors and miners and adventurers on this Klondike limit ed are bubbling over with Joy that the days of their exile are over, and that soon they will be back to their boyhood homes again. Think of turning loose a candy butcher in such a crowd as that. To quote another poular song, "It seemed like a shame to take the money." The trainboy on the Klondike limited, like his bothers on the Kenosha local, deals in peanuts, candy, books, papers, and magazines. But more than that, he sells shirts and collars and bright red neckties. He also has a full line of whiskeys and plug tobacco and cigars of the finest cabbage selected leaf. The trainboy does not like to sell cigars. He only gets 50 cents apiece for them. and they cost him 75 cents a hundred. He sells the cigars to show he s a good fellow. He didn't originally deal in shirts and haberdashery, but he found that the miners returning to civiliza tion yearn madly for a "biled" shirt. So after he had sold the shirt off his back. together with his collar and red necktie for $100 he decided to carry a stock of shirts and ties. There are stringent restrictions in Alaska in regard to selling whisky, and so the trainboy doesn't sell it. He gives it away, and lets the man who drinks it tip him for his trouble in pulling the cork. If the man were to give him a nugget any smaller than the size of the cork the trainboy would haughtily re fuse to let him buy any more cigars, and would charge him at least $5 for a two months old newspaper, which he ordinarily gives away for only $1.50. Then the trainboy sells playing cards, and the passengers are always wanting a game. He puts up the table, too, hands around the matches, and, of course, a large and substantial "kitty" is maintained on one side of the table for the sole support of the obliging trainboy. If anybody was to put a quarter or a silver half dollar into the "kitty" the trainboy wouldn't be angry. He' uses those things to pay storekeep ers for fresh goods for his next run. A Seattle newspaper man interviewed the trainboy on the last trip from Alaska. Quoth the trainboy: "Am I it? Am I? Say, .ain't I a naughty boy? I knew it's wrong to take the money, but I need it in my business, and, besides, as soon as I get enough I'll buy the rail road and give some other good deserv ing boy a chance to fasten on to a little honest money. But $1 for a sack of peanuts. Sav, that's a penitentiary offense in Illinois. But I need the money." THE PAY OF MINISTERS. From Harper's Weekly.! At a meeting of Universalist ministers in Boston last week one of the brethren opened his heart on the subject of min isters' salaries. He felt deeply that they were too low, and thought ministers were paid only about half as much as lawyers and doctors of equal ability. He thought, for one thing, that a min ister should be paid for officiating at funerals, where the family is in a posi tion to give fees find are not attendants at his church. That point, at least, seems to be well taken. No reason sug gests itseif why. under such circum stances as stated, a funeral fee should not be willingly paid and accepted with resignation. The question of funeral fees often comes up, because cases in which they seem due are not uncommon, but they fire rarely paid and are omitted in most instances because the bereaved family does not feel at liberty to offer one.

A settlement of the woodworkers' strike, that eulminiated ii the murder of Foreman Harry Farress. is said to be assured as the outcome of conciliatory measures submitted by a member of one of the firms whose men are out. These plans were favorably considered by the meeting of the build ing material trades council last night. It was left to the board of business agents of the council to arrange and rat ify the terms of the peace pact at a meeting to be held with the firms repre sentatives today. If the settlement expected is made it is aeciareo that the sequel will be a sim ilar adjustment with all the other firms that held out after 33 of the 42 mills or iginally included in the strike had sign ed the union agreements w-hen the strike was in force only a few weeks. For nearly 15 weeks the strike of the union woodworkers has been in force against these firms. It has been an ex citing struggle, marked on a few occa sions by scenes of violence and blood shed. More than 1,400 members of the wood workers' union were involved originally in the strike when it was called Septem ber 1. A leading issue In the trouble was the eight hour day, which had obtained in the union mills for one year.but which the mill owenrs wanted to abrogate for the former work day of about nine hours. THE HAZING OF B00Z. Father of Dead Cadet Will Present Statement to Congress. New York, Dec. 10. William H. Booz, father of Oscar L.

The statement will be turned over to Congressman Wanger, and he will be asked to bring about a thorough investigation of the charge that young Booz was cruely treated. In the document will be the details of the hazing told by the dead cadet, ex tracts of letters received from him by his family, and also names uttered by him in his delirium. KIPLING ON TEMPERANCE. English Author Finds a Lesson in the Experience of the Soldiers. London, Dec. 10. Rudyard Kipling has come out as a strong advocate of temper ance. Writing on the subject he iava "So far as I could see in South Africa. it did not matter what sort of spirits a man fancied, because there was not the least danger of his getting more than was good for him. On the other hand, men who could do without liquor, who did not fancy they neetled to flood their inside every two or three hours, got on bettor than the men who, through mere physical incontinence and carelessness, were con stantly sucking their water bottles. "In this, as in all things, the man who is temperate, in the full sense of the word, survives." A novel saloon trust scheme Is being started here by temperance reformer, headed by Earl Grev. Under it everv new license granted by the authorities will be acquired. The profits from the saloons beyond 4 per cent will be applied to ob jects of public utility. The London County Council had to pur chase sixty saloon licenses in buying prop erty to cut a new thoroughfare from Hol born to the Strand, and the saloon trust proposes to acquire these to begin with. Lord Roberts' testimony to the value of temperance has caused the foundation of the "Bobs league." a new temperance or ganization which Isto be inaugurated by entertaining "Bobs" on his return at a public banquet without an intoxicating drink. Pro Boer Meeting Prohibited. Liverpool, Dec. 10. A pro-Boer meet ing at which Miss Maud Gonne was to preside tonight has been prohibited by the police.
