TOPEES STATE JOURNAI, TUESDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 11, 1900.
: i i t t U ! i 3 i; i r i t r 9 ': i 1 SCORESAT HOLjE. Miss Ethelyn Palmer Given a Hearty Reception. Demonstrates Her Ability as an Emotional Actress. PLAY IS NOT STRONG. Topeka Actress Has Many Op portunities Notwithstanding. Mr. Tanneliill to Hare a New Piay Next Season. Topeka gave one of her own daugh tersMiss Kth-lyn Palmer a hearty reception last night at the Crawford. It was the first time this younK actress has been seen as a star at her home anJ the result was, as a a-hole, satis factory. The play was a. melodramatic con glomeration of the hair raising kind with a half dozen villains, a dutiful son and a pretty- wife. Naturally there must be a. green country man to arrive at the right time and exclaim. "I saw you do it." Mr. Tannehill was the coun tryman and there was a perpetual at mosphere of unfitness about him. He wiil make no mistake when he returns ta his. old lines of legitimate comedy, which he expects to do next season. But Miss Palmer is cot responsible for the play. She didn't write it and neither did Mr. Tannehill. Ernest Howard as the renegade son and head villain acted as if he was worked by machinery. He is too mild looking for a villain and he can not get rid of the mild lock. The dutiful sob, Clarence Douarlass, portrayed by Carl Storkdale, was enough to give one the nightmare. He appeared to be totally devoid of emotion and he heard his wife chareed with a horrible crime and saw her exonerated without a Quaver as if it was an everv day matter which it o on the stare. Stella, the maid, by Edna Dortnan. was clever. Bnt the- bright and refreshing' oasis in the whole cast was pretty iliss Palmer herself. The part was emotional just vi' h as an unschooled nctress might "tear to. tatters, "but Misa Palmer didn't tear it. She was delightfully pleasing and happily moderate in the most trying scenes. There is so much opportunity to overact in this part that Miss Palmer really deserves great credit for her portrayal. When the youn? wife returns to the office in her father-in-law's house after she has retired and finds him on the floor struck down by his renegade son the first opportunity was given to the young actress to show whether she could rise to a delicate conception of a difficult situation. She sees her hus band's paper knife in the &and of his dying father and hears htm mutter with his last breath. "My own son killed me.' and she at once concludes that her hus band is his father's murderer. With a true wifely instinct she determines to shield her husband. Once for ail here was Miss Palmer's opportunity. One step ever the hounds and she would have been set down as a failure. One hoot of derision from the gallery would havs marked the downfall but it was not given. She met the opportunity and conquered It. Miss Palmer was suffering from a se ver" cold and tins interfered somewhat with the scenes that required (create r force but she never lost the delicate and retired touch of the finished actress. Miss Palmer received! three curtain calls and they were certainly merited She undoubtedly has a future in emo tional parts. Some day Tcpeka hopes to see Miss Palmer in a stronger piay with a stronger cast when she will aol shine so much by contrast. "A Your. a- Wife" is called a comedy drama but Mr. Tannehill as the ".-Seub" furnishes the only comedy and it is not of a very high class either. The play should be called a melodrama for a mel odrama it certainly is if 'TheStowaway' and a dozen others its class are mel odramas. Judson Douglass, a rich New Yorker, disinherits and disowns his rn egade son. Hu&uri. who is given, the name of Charles Clemens who goes to live with gamblers, thieves and thusrs. He there meets a beautiful little- girl who has been stolen by the criminals and who finally runs away and is adopt ed by a wealthy family. In the mean time Judson Douglass adopt a son, Clarence, who meets the girl and mar ries her. The scene of the piay opens as the young wife is brought to the Douglass home. A large sum of money is locked in the saf-. The renegade son who is cow liv ing at home under the name of Charles Clemens learns the combination and plans to steal the money. He esters ' i:- house with two of his pals and as he is leaving with the cash his father comes into the room and is killed with The paper knife belonging to Ciar-.-i:0-'. Ti- k r. ' is f urH in the pssession if young Mrs. 1 u:..s who fs trying- to shield her husband and she if? accused of the murder by a detective who finds out ai! about her early life. Titer is a scene in "the den whre the young' wife goes to s- her supposed parents and tiv hero who has been slugged and filled wfth laudanum !!! to the rescue and dances and infra Just as if he enjoyed being pound ed over the head. He assists the your.? wife to riv the thugs laudanum in their whisky and the two escape. Of course In the end the mystery is cleared up. the reneeade son is captured and it is presumed that the young couple live happily ev. r afterward. "Next year Mr. Tannehill will have a play of his own and as it is a comedy, p-ure and simple, the theater goers will be thankful for he really has much ability both as an actor and a play wright. boo"mixg WELCH.

His body was burned in the waycar. In view of the state of strike ou the Santa Fe the accident is a serious af fair. Two miles west of Olathe a stock train was stalled with air brakes stuck.

The incident has created a stir, and the state board of education is blamed for adopting the "treasonable' musie books for use- of the school children of the state. There is a general protest throughout all sections of Indiana over their use in the public schools. The songs have been discontinued here. SLEW HOUSE TO ATOMS.

Dee. 11. One of the biggest strikes, and by far the most important one, which has been made in the camp this year was entered at thw depth of 850 feet in the Anaconda com pany's workings. At the depth of 4 feet below the tunnel level, in a drift, there are now five feet cf ore, all of it showing sylvanite in abundance. Assays indicate a value of about $1.20 a ton. For & distance of 5 feet a bar ren zone was run through. The dis covery is very significant both for the Anaconda company as well as for the entire camp.

Must Answer to the Charges in Topeka. Downfall Caused by His Weak ness For Liquor. Attempted to Commit Suicide Last Week. "I am a forger." These are the words used by a man who appeared at the St. Louis police station this morning and asked to be locked up. The man was Alex. S. Drummond, who is well known In Topeka. He confessed to the forgery of the names of two TopeSa contractors to notes of small denominations in St. Louis Monday night. It is believed that he forged the notes to secure money to t get to St. Louis. I It was learned this morning that one of the forged notes bore the name of Cuthbert & Sargent, and was for the sum of 520. It was cashed at the Sim 1 drug store. The other was for but it has not been learned whose name was forged. He will be brought baeit to Topeka for trial, j Mr. Drummond left the city on Sat t urday. "He told me," said Mrs. Diura ! mond. "that he was going to Maple Hill to visit some of his Scotch friends, and that he would return Sunday night or Monday morning. But he did not re turn, and I have not heard from him since." Mrs. Drummond first learned that her husband was in St. Louis from a State Journal reporter. Alex. Drummond attempted suicide last Wednesday night, December 5, by taking morphine. He took a large dosi and his life was saved only after nearly a whole night's work, with him. Mr. Drummond's family is in a desti tute condition. The furniture with w hich his house was furnished had been bought on credit of a secondhand man on East Fourth street. Only a very small amount had been paid down, and the secondhand man this morning took charge of the furniture. This leaves the unfortunate wife almost without the necessary comforts of life. The family consists cf his wife and two girls. The oldest is about 14 years old and the youngest about 7 years old. Drummond formerly had a feed stre, and was for several years a clerk in the Santa Fe store house in this city. His reputation as a clerk was good. Some money was left htm in Scotland and he went there to- settle up the affairs several years ago, and after returning to this country he acquired the drink habit. He gradually went through with his monev, and for a long time he was practically a beggar on the streets. He was continually borrowing small sums from his friends when he had no pros pects of ever paying it back About two years ago his case came to the irotiee of the Y. M. C. A. people of this city and they took him In. He promised to quit drinking if they would help him find a place to get work. H 3 family was looked after and he was giv en the position of janitor at the Y. M. C. A. rooms. He worked faithfully there for several months during which time he left liquor alone. During this time the marks of dissipation left his face and as soon as it was deemed advisable a place was found for him in the office of C. ML Atwood, auditor of passenger receipts of the Santa Fe. He soon became accustomed to his work and won the reputation of being a good clerk, and accurate. He got along very nicely for about a year and a half. When he first took his position in the office it was with the understanding that Mr. George Lerrig'.v secretary of the Y. M. C. A. should manage his financial affairs. Mr. Lerrigo accordingly settled his bills at the end of every month. But, about the middle of last summer Druia mond began paying his own bills and re porting to Mr. Lerrigo that he had paid them. From that time on he began to gradually get farther and farther into debt. Finally en the first cf November after Drujr.morid had been on "a drunk" Mr. Lerrigo again tools charge of the af fairs. On the first of November he found that according to Drummond's tate meta he had bills to the amount of This was. a-- Mr. Lerrigo discovered la ter, about S15 less than was really, the case. To meet these bills he had a check for $39. 65. Drummond spent last Wednesday in driving over the city and went home at night with the intention of ending his life by taking morphine. Ed Snyder, the janitor of the Y. M. C. A. who went to pay a second visit to the Drummond home with more supplies, found Mr. Drummond under the influence of the morphine. He called a doctor and his life was finally saved. After the epipsude Drummond t M Mr. Lerrigo that he wanted to leave To peka and try to make a, new start. He said that he wanted to begin all over again; that he wanted to leave all his old associates and try making his way once aga.in. Mr. Atwood, in whose de partment Drummond worked, being out of the city he was unable to secure a pass. Mr. Lerrigo tried to secure a pass for him in one of the various depart ments but was unable to secure it. It is believed that in desperation and as a last resort he- forged the checks to furnish him the money with which to leave the city. He kept his departure a secret. He did not tell any of his friends at the Y. M. C. A. nor any one that he was going to St. Louis. And In leaving home he explained to his wife that he was going to Maple Hill to visit a friend. The news that he confessed to the forgery in St. Louis came as a surprise to his many acquaintances in this elty, of whom many of them did not know that he had left the city. Drummond is a well known member of the Topeka Scottish society. To California, the American Summer lani.

The State Has Paid up $4,000,000 m Back Taxes in Four Tears. Lincoln, Neb.,Dee. 11. A flattering In dex to the great prosperity of Nebraska is furnished by the biennial report of the state treasurer, made to the governor today. Four years ago there were $7, ;...'." of back taxes due; today there are only 3,000.00 unpaid and these rep resent the sums owing by men who left the state in the hard times. Four years ago a per cent state warrants were sell ing at 94 and 95 cents; today 4 per cent warrants command a premium of 1 per cent. Four years ago there was less than Jlux. 1 in the treasury and the state was IliOOfi.OOO behind on its general fund warrants Today the balance on hand is W15.GG0 and the floating indebtedness has been reduced to $524,000. The treasury recommends that In view of the prosperous conditions and the growth of the state that the levy be in creased from five to seven mills and the interest on state warrants be reduced to 3 per cent. Ill FIGHTING CLOTHES. The American Federation As sembles For Business. Louisville. Dec. 11. The delegates to the American Federation of Labor evi dently wore their "fighting clothes" this morning. A motion to omit the roll call, owing to the mere sprinkling of delegates in the hall at 9 o'clock, offered the first opportunity to show their spirit and received an emphatic negative and spicy argument marked the session throughout. A rosewood gavel was presented to President Gorapers by the Central Labor union of Louisviile, and the convention at once took up the argument of reso lutions. Under suspension of the rules, a resolution was presented by the cigar makers' delegation and immediately adopted by the convention denouncing the efforts of the Resistancia to keep members of the cigaxmakers' union out of the cigar factories in Tampa. The support of the federation is pledged to the unions of Tampa in their effort to secure and maintain their rights, A circular from Tampa. Fia., which did not bear a union label provoked a discussion, resulting in the chairman of the convention ordering all documents not bearing the union stamp removed from the hall. Other resolutions adopted provided for the demanding cf the card of the Re tail Clerks' International Protective association when making purchases; for the organization of unions of shipping department workers and all other freight handlers; for organization of blacksmiths and the placing of such organizations in the 'front rank of trade unionism"; for the organization of trunk, and baggage workers, and for the organization of the agriculturists. A resolution was adopted directing the secretary of the federation to in struct non-affiliated locals to affiliate with chartered local central bodies and to insist that local unions chartered di rect by the American Federation cf Labor shall affiliate with the chartered central bodies of the American Federa tion of Labor before affiliating with any other central body in name or preten sions. Adjournment was taken until 4 o'clock. CHAFFEE'S PROTEST. Says Himself That It Was orotts in Character. Tig- Washington, Dec. 11. The war de partment has received a report from General Chaffee of the incident that oc curred at Pekin in connection with his representations, to Field Marshal Von Waldersee. It appears that General Chaffee did use some pretty vigorous language in protesting . against the thieving and looting of the foreign troops.. What particularly hurt the feel ings of Waldersee was a pointed ref erence by General Chaffee to the fact that this disgraceful and unmilitary practice of looting was being indulged in, not by the men who did the fight ing and opened the way to Pekin, but by the late comers, who had borne none of the brunt of conflict and hardship. Waldersee himself did not reach Pekin until long after the expeditionary force had occupied the town. It is recognized here officially that General Chaffee had provocation for his deliverance, but regret is felt that he used this tone in addressing the field marshal. It is significantly pointed out here that perhaps it was not incumbent upon General Chaffee to make any rep resentations whatever on this subject to th field marshal, as there is uo longer any official tie between them. When the United States government changed the character of its military represen tation in I'ekin from an expeditionary force to a mere legation guard, of course that guard no longer came under the control of the commander in chief at Pekin, but was simply a part of Min ister Conger's official household. ' EX-SLAVES PENSION FRAUD Another Big Petition Said to be on Its Way to the President New Orleans, La., Dec. 11. Another largely signed petition is on the way from Mississippi to President McKinley in favor of an aet of congress providing for pensions for former slaves. The ex-slave pension craze is stronger among the negroes of Mississippi than those of any other southern state, and it is estimated that 20,000 of them have been mulcted of their hard-earned money by the wily negroes who are promoting the movement. No less than a dozen agents of the ex-slave pension operators have been sent to the federal penitentiary from Mississippi during the last year for impersonating a federal officer and getting money from the ne groes for the ex-slave pension aet. But this seems to have had no effect upon the fraud. RENOUNCES HER FAITH. Daughter of a Lutheran Minister Ea ters Convent Life, Terre Haute, Ind.. Dec. 11. Among five young women who yesterday at St. Mary's of the Woods, the mother home of the Sisters of Providence of the Unit ed States, entered the chapel in white as brides c-f the church, was Miss Louise Iske, of Indianapolis, the daughter of a Lutheran minister in Indianapolis, and who joined the Catholic church despite the strenuous opposition of her parents and friends a few months ago. She was a school teacher of uncommon intellec tual attainments. There was an impressive scene when the bishop, asked the young women if any one of them desired to withdraw, there being a thought with all present that Miss Iske, soon to be Sister Mary Frederick, might withdraw. None of the members of her family were present. JEW CRAWFORO THEATER. 8:15 TOI5TGIIT 8:15 The Celebrated German Dialect Comedian, AL. H. WILSON, In a Jfew Bomantic Comedy, "The Watch on the Rhine."

Hay Won't Say Whether He Will Go or Stay. Washington, Dec. 11. A prominent official of the state department today said: "There is no foundation whatever for the story that this government has re ceived assurance from that of Great Britain that the canal convention, if ratified by the senate with, the pending amendment, will be accepted by the British cabinet. No such promise, sug gestion or intimation has ever reached the state department from any official source, and the department does not know what action the British govern ment would take in the event that the pending treaty is amended as proposed. Every intimation, however, that has reached here goes to show that the adoption of any amendment would be regretted by the British authorities. "Through misunderstanding or some other reason the impression was con veyed to the public as a result of the proceedings in secret session in the sen ate yesterday in connection with the treaty, that Secretary-! Hay had stated that he would resign his office if the pending Davis amendment to the Hay Pauncefote treaty were adopted. The secretary's exact attitude In this mat ter is purely negative. He simply slated that he had never threatened the sen at or any other authority to resign his office if certain actions were not taken respecting the trsaty. He did not prom ise to remain if it were amended; he did not threaten to quit." SOUSA'S BAND ABROAD. After Tour of America Organization "Will Start For Glasgow Exposition. New York, Dec. 11.
