Stock a Dozen Joints.
1,C17 The biggest raid that the 'Topeka, po
27''''';2 lice have made for many months was
v.,7;,4 finished late New Year's evening. Frank
6 2'4 Raynor who is charged with running a

6.756 large quantity of liquor and fixtures be

2''.2 station.
Chief Stahl and Officers Bernard and
8.018 tJarpenter entered the place without re
f, sista.nce at 3 o'clock and arrested Ray
7,'.;,; nor. They found a bar upon which
17.442 liquors were displayed at retail besides
,:1:1";;I. two large rooms used as storage places.
Raynor refused to open the room in

pollee broke the lock with a monkey

1.(lt 112 kegs, 1'2 cases, 31,, barrels, 6 half
- barrels of beer; 2S jugs and 6 bottles of
55,-; whisky; 1 keg of blackberry brandy.
7,:ti It is probable that r,mlevin suit will
11 72 be instituted. Attorney R.- F. Bayden,
2 1;S who will defend Raynor, appeared while
2:2:'. '4 the police were taking charge and read
1,1.,7; the warrant. No steps had been taken
toward a suit at last report. Chief Stahl
9 ,Y21
S4,4 1 is confident that he can produce testi
mony which will convict Raynor.
1.427.0,-.6 -It has taken a good deal of time,"
Finney said the chief, -to work up this case but
perhaps not much more than one in
which the seizure was less."
About a. year ago ex-Chief Ramsey
seized 10:i kegs of beer, belonging to
Raynor. but the goods were recovered
by him after he was acquitted.
His bond was fixed at $500 and was
signed by John D. Hanley of North Topeka-

Tuesday was as ;perfect a day as
though it had been made expressly for
the numerous callers who thronged, the
streets the entire afternoon. The custom
of making New Year's calls has been
popular in Topeka for many years, and
it still clings, though in the surrounding
towns and most of the eastern cities it is
almost obsolete.
The custom of receiving and making
New Year's calls is a delightful one and
is indeed a fitting way in which to usher
in the New Year and it is hoped that it
will long remain in favor in Topeka.
This New Year's there were few re
ceiving parties but they v.-ere all large,
and included even more of the older so
ciety women than the young ones. It
was fully demonstrated Tuesday that
the older men enjoy making New Yeat'a
calls as well as the younger ones, and in
many cases more so.
One of the notable parties, of callers
was composed of: Mr. A. A. Robinson,
Mr. P. 1. Bonebrake , Mr. Eugene F.
Ware, and Mr. William A. Johnston.
Their cards bore at the top, "Fifth-annual
tour of the Youth's club," wishes
for a happy New Year, and the names,
Another party which is as welcome as
it is well known and 'which makes the
annual tour each year is the Ad Astra
quartette; this year they sang at each
house appropriate words set to the tune
of the "Old Oaken Bucket." Their cards
were big oblong, affairs containing the
pictures of the quartette, Mr. Shaver,
Mr. H. L. Shirer, Mr. David Bowie and
Mr. James Moore, with a. sad looking
little Cupid in the fore-ground intently
eyeing a. 1901 calendar, and Father Tin,e
in the back sharpening up his scythe.
Mr. Edward Dennis, Mr.Earl Case, Mr.
John Abrahams and Mr. Charles El lioct
and Mr. Horace Macferran composed
another party; their cards were a vivid
red, lettered in black, and wished all a
"Red Letter Century."
Mr. Halley Reisman, "Mr. Wallace
Thompson and Mr. 13111'11S Williams call
ed together. Their cards contained a
tiny silhouette of the frontispiece of the
Black Douglas March, and the following
"Like knights of old,
We sally forth
To greet you maidens fair,
And wish you all
This New Year's Day,
Full many a joyous year."
Mr. B. McClintock, Mr. W. B. Roby,
Dr. R. S. McGee and Mr. F. B. Bacon
composed another party and on their
cards was the following verset
"Don't call us kidlets
Or of immature ages,
We're men of two centuries,
They call us the sages."
A quartette composed of Mr. Kurtz
Kellam, Mr. Roland Medlicott, Mr. Phil
Dailey and Mr. Clark Dailey wa-s anoth
er party that made music everwhere it
Mr. T. A. McNeal, Mr. Albert T. Reid,
Mr. Arthur Capper and Mr. James A.
Troutman probably had the most unique
cards of the afternoon; they contained
clever cartoons of the four gentlemen.
In another party were Mr. Arthur Lee
Murphy, Mr. Frank Paley Edson, Mr.
John Ellsworth Weaver and Mr.Williarn
Hale Eastman. There were many other
parties but most of the men went by
twos anti threes.
At Miss Cuibor's.
Probably the place where they had the
best time was at Miss Edith Guibor's,
there were about :30 girls in the party
and many of them had never received
before. All were prettily gowned and it
is needless to, say that they bad more
callers than any one. The favors were
tiny imitation "full dinner pails," which
by the way contained bonbons. The dec
orations were charming; in the parlor
pina was used and yellow in the back
parlor, while red predominated in the li
brary. White roses, ferns and smilax
helped to make the dining, room a pretty
restful spot. In the evening they enter
tained a corresponding number of young
men at a dancing party at Hudson's
At the Y. C A.
The la.rgest party of all was at the
Y. M. C. A. In the receiving pa,rty
were many of the best known society
women ot the city. The rooms were
elaborately decorated with yards and
yards of evergreen ropes, holly and
mistletoe. In all of the doors were rope
portieres of evergreen., From the cor
ners of the rooms to the chandeliers
were evergreen ropes which formed a
pretty canopy overhead. The color
scheme WaS carried out in red in the
dining room. In one corner of one of
the parlors was an artistic Moorish
corner piled with cushions. The doors
were carpeted with pretty rugs. In the
everting an informal affair was enjoycti
by a large number of guests. The pro
gramme consisted of music and a gym
nasium exhibition participated in by
about thirty men. The favors in the
afternoon were two little trianglesthe
Y. M. C. A. emblem, and the words,
"Mind, Body, Spirit"tied with yellow
ribbons; ort the ba,ck in gold letters
were the words "The New Century," and
the following couplet:
"Great is it in tills Dawn to be alive,
But to be young is very Heaven."
At the Y. W. A.
Equally aS attractive were the Y. Iv.
c. A.. rooms, and the ladies who re
ceived there. The colors used in all of
the rooms were red and green; palms,
evergreen and red carnations predomi
nated. In a little red-decked room off
of one of the parlors punch was served
by a number of young girls dressed in
red. Tne gymnasium was converted
into a dining room for the occasion. and
as in ail cases most of tne decorations
were there. Ropes of evergreen formed
an effective canopy overhead, and across
one corner Wag a, huge Oriental corner
piled Ingo with pillows, At one end of
the room a big music box played during
the afternoon. The round polished
table had a pretty Battenburg center
piece and a high cut glass vase of
scarlet carnations, and was lighted by
candelabra ablaze with red candles. Re
freshments of turkey salad, bread and
butter sandwiches and coffee were
served. The Y. W. C. A. colors are
green and white, and the favors were
white satin ribbons lettered in green.
In the evening a "new centurY partY"
was enjoyed by many of the young pcsr
ple of the city at the Y. W. C. A. rooms,
Music and bowling formed the principal
amusements of the evening, though a
fortune teller was not the least of the
attractions. Miss Flo Bates was dressed
in gypsy costume and acted as seer for
the occasion. A special musical num
ber was by Mrs. la H. Strickler and
Mrs. Eli G. Foster.
At Mrs. Sim's.
The receiving party next in size was
at the home of Mrs. E. T. Sim, On Har
rison street. Mrs. Sim's house is adl
mirably arranged for an affair of this
kind. as three large rooms are thrown
together by folding doors. In a. small
room off the second parlor Steinbeig's
orchestra. played during the evening.
Evergreens. holly and.mistletoe formed
the decorations in the two parlors, but
the dining room was charming in red
and green. On tho bare polished table
was an exquisite Eatterburg center
piece on which rested a high vase brim
ming. over with red carnations. The
sideboard and china cabinet were
massed with holly and mistletoe with
vases of carnations in the midst. There
were candelabra. in all of the rOlarn3
with red candles and the gaslights were
all red-shaded. Thirty ladies received,
and a corresponding number of gentle
men were invited for an 8 o'clock SUP
per, after which the remainder of the
evening was spent in playing cards. The
prizes were won by Miss Anna Marie
Nellie; and Mr. Luther Burns. The floors
were canvassed and the evening ended
with an informal dance. The favors in
the afternoon were small cards contain
ing copies of Gibson heads done in pen
and ink.
At Mrs. Sweet's. -
'Mrs. T. B. Sweet and her daughter,
3,1iss Mary Sweet, assisted by a number
of their friends, received very informal
ly during the afternoon and it is need
less to say feat all of their callers had
a good time as the small parties are al
ways enjoyable. The handsome rooms
hardly need any decoration but there
were quantities of them nevertheless.
Christmas greens and flowers predom
inating. The favors were pretty little
copies of Gibson drawings clone by Miss
Mary 4iweet.
At the Bishop's House,
Bishop and Mrs. Millspaugh always
keep open house On New Year's day and
this is always looked forward to with a,
deal of pleasure by their friends. Their
hours were from two until ten and at
seven o'clock the assisting ladies and a
number of other guests were entertained
at tea. Miss Ethel Morton, Miss Helen
McClintock and Miss Nellie Millspaugh
served lemonade.
At Mrs. Trump s.
The members of the D. D. Card club
received at the home of Mrs. W. L.
Trump on Van Buren street Holly,
mistletoe, evergreen and cut flowers
formed the decorations in all of the
rooms. Red prevailed in the dining
room; on the table were pretty can
delbra blazing with red candles, also
urns, from which the ladies served
steaming cups of coffee. The favors
were two big letters, D. D. in red and
gold tied with red ribbons. A corre
sponding number of men were invited
to spend the evening and play cards
after which supper was served. High
five was the game played and the prizes,
a plate and a stein, were WO n by Mr.
and Mrs. W. H. Eastman.
At Mrs. Wiggin's.
The decorations at Mrs. Margaret
Wiggin's were very dainty and pretty,
the dining room especially. PrOM the
chandelier to the corners of the table
were strands of smilax and in the cen
ter on a mirror plateau was a high cut
glass vase full of drooping pink carna.
tions. A big cut glass punch bowl con
tained egg nog, which the ladies served
to their callers with champagne wafers.
The lights were pink shadedand through
the rooms were candelabra containing
pink candles. A music box played in

How Governor Humphrey Surprised
the Legislature
In 18!)0, when the Farmers' alliance
swept nearly everything off the boards
in Kansas, leaving' the Republicans the
state ticket by a close margin. there was
much caucusing and discussion between
the election and the meeting of the legis
lature, by the "State house crowd." Gov
ernor Humphrey had been re-elected, and
it was the belief of the Republican lead,
ers, among them Ben Simpson. Bill Hig
gins, George Peck, Bernard Kelly, Bill
Martindale and others, that the governor
should give the alliance a message for
their whiskersfor most of them wore
very long' whiskers.
Governor Humphrey's message covered
nearly every topic from Baxter Springs
to Good land, and from White Cloud to
Liberal. It was the longest message ever
submitted by EL governor to a defenseless
legislature. D. O. Me Cray, who was ex
ecutive clerk under Humphrey, was dele
gated to deliver the message to the house
and senate. When he walked up the cen
ter aisle in the house and announced to
the speaker that he was "directed by the
governor to deliver to the house EL mess
age in writing," Captain Joseph G Waters
sat at the reporters' table in front of him
and gave him a sly wink. Then Waters
asked one of the reporters for a sheet of
paper on which he indited these lines:
My dearly beloved, D. O. Mc Cray,
On the governor's message I've this to
Of all things modern the message beats
To read it through, you should start in
the fall.
It discourses of matters no earthly ac
count, And compared with the sermon once spoke
, on the mount,
It contains by precision, just two million
more ems,
And longer than dirt road from Leeds to
the Thames.
And the noble old hayseeds, as each sat
at his desk,
Bold Roman, and Greek. and quaint Ara
besque. They put down their feet and demanded
a stop,
Declared they must get home in time for
a crop,
That if it was read they didn't see how
The corn and potatoes, this spring they
could plow.
And when you started to read gave re
, minder and hint
And adopted a cloture, with their leave
to print.
With thisthe last opportunity lied!
And the message goes down the ages
