Fifty. three members of the Chicago Commercial club passed through Topeka this morning on a special train over- the Santa Fe en route for California.

There were three Pullman sleepers, one composite car, Robert Lincoln's special car and a diner. Among those on board were Ppesidt-nt H. P. Ripley of the Santa Fe, Marshall Field, proprietor of the great Chicago dry goods house, and K. M. Weston, the noted manufacturer of electrical goods. The train reached Topeka at 11:43 and i topped only about five mint-tes, giving an pp.a-t unity for change of engines and for taKir.g coal and water. The members of i he partv spent the interval walking the .epot platform and talking among them--elves. The first regular stop will be made Thursday at Phoenix. Ariz., where the party will leave the train for two days to see the Grand canon and other places of interest in that locality. Af. I. os An.ueles they will spend three days and at San Francisco live The return trip will be made over the northern and northwestern lines, the train passing over lea different roads during the cnl.'re trip.

Jefferson City, March o. The supreme court today handed down an opinion declaring the beer inspection law enact ed in lif9 constitutional: The opinion is bv a divided court. Judges Brace, Gantt, Marshall and Valiant concurring and Judges Burgess, Sherwood and Robinson dissenting. The law levies a tax of 3S cents per barrel on all beer manufac tured or sold in the state. Beer shipped out of the state Is inspected free. It is estimated that the law will raise $600,000 revenue annually. The law was attacked on consitutional grounds because it discriminated in fa vor of home products and on the ground that the law was not properly enacted because it is a revenue measure under tbe guise of an inspection tax. The opinion, which was written by Judge Ks., .18 3. -Soilars ioo S, (. frl jc VW - - rr. Jfi?. .

Chief Stahl Says He Is la With the Jointists. Blames His Failure as Chief of Police on Police Court. Mr. Betts Asks Hughes Em barrassing Questions. The city council went the legislature one better last night and passed a new liquor ordinance which has all the points in the Hurrel law and then several more added to It. The members evidently thought the people were demanding liquor legislation and they would give it to them strong. It is doubtful if the ordinance would have passed at any other time, but as the city election was close at hand and a number of the councilmen "are candidates they could PqJjLW- ZclA - - Topeka, KB-flf Reee i ved 0fZjK-cTrSz &r?irUOSLdL ' FOR RENT OF s ) for 4 m onfh enbinn rJJJJf- J f "FOR RENT OF " too for month enblno Building For Use as a Joint. not afford to vote against it in view of the present temper of the people. The ordinance is far reachi.ig and goes beyond the old search and seizure or dinance. If it is enforced it will be im possible to get a drink in Topeka except at a drug store where a permit has been granted. According to the terms of the ordinance it is considered an unlawful sale to call a friend in your house tnd give him a drink of beer or othei liquor. A man is guilty of a violation of the ordinance if he is found in a place where liquor is sold and it does not require that an actual sale shall be proven. The fact that liquor is kept anywnere is con sidered evidence sufficient to convict. It also makes it unlawful to be a member of a club where any liquor is taken for division among the members. Every member is considered as having violated the ordinance and the place is considered a common nuisance. Any one can abate the nuisance by swearing out a warrant and having the place searched. The penalty for violations is a fine of not less than $100 nor more than $300 and imprisonment for not less than thirty days nor more than 100 in the city jail. When the ordinance had been read by sections Mr. Swenson moved its adop tion and then the fun began. Mr. Betis said that there were parts of the or dinance which he thought were all right, but that there were sections he objected to. "I don't believe it is right to find a man guilty of selling liquor because he should chance to ask a friend into his house and give him a glass of beer," he said. "I don't believe there is a member here who would not at some time be found guilty if the ordinance was en forced, but I don't believe it will be as it goes too far. I am against the joints and believe in "passing an ordinance against them, but I can not see the ben efit in passing an ordinance that we know will not be enforced." Mr. Myers made the same objection and said that he thought the council men should have time to look the or dinance over before passing on it. "There are sections in it I do not like." he said, and I think we should put this matter over until next meeting night." Mr. Weber also objected to the pass ing of the ordinance without a chance to consider it, but the mayor ruled that the ordinance had been read by sections and adopted and that a motion to post pone was out of order. About this time everybody had some thing to say at the same time but Mr. Betts was finally recognizee? and said: ''There is politics in bringing this or dinance up tonight and that is ail there is in it. No man who is a man can vote for the ordinance as it now stands. If it is changed I will vote for its passage. If a neighbor should call me into his house Sunday and give me a glass of beer he and 1 would be guilty of selling liquor. It is absurd." "I want to call the gentleman's atten tion to the fact that he said go into a neighbor's house Sunday. It is not only Sunday but every day this ordinance is intended to cover." said Hughes. "Well, we might go any day. We all do," replied Mr. Betts. "Not on Sunday." "No, but we went to the cold storage, you remember." The coionel evidently remembered for he did not answer. Mr. Snattinger then took a hand and wanted the shipping in of liquor stopped. "You can't stop the sale of it as long as you allow it to come to town. I don't think you go far enough with the or dinance." Mr. Mergan objected strongly to the ordinance. He said that it was simply piling up costs on the city lo have the cases tried in a police court. "The police court is not the place for such cases," he said. "They should go to the district court wdiere the belong. Ever since I have been here you have been making great costs to the city and have done no good with your ordinances. There never was a joint closed by an ordinance pass ed by this council." Mr. Hughes again got the floor and said that the reason he insisted upon the passage of the ordinance a:d oi prose cution by the city was because the county officers were inactive. "This is to get rid of the joints and that is all there is to it. ' Our ordinances have been all right and this one is all right. We want the joints to go and this is the way to do it." The mayor took a hand and said he desired to say a word: "I want to say that the people of this city have decided that the joints have got to go, ard if you don't pass an ordinance that will close the joints the people? will close them for us and it will cost us-more money than it does to pass an ordinance. ' When the roll was called Mr. Betts ex plai ed his vote by saying that he was not in favor of joints, but that he was not in favor of such an ordinance as was proposed. "I voted for a much better law than this in the legislature," he added, "but this has too much to it." Mr. Weber at first refused to vote on the ordinance and insisted on it being postponed but finally voted against it. In explaining" his vote Mr. Warner said: "I have always voted for or dinances against the sale of liquor and -TJoilar - M Si't louars v (?) I propose to do it this time. I don t have to change my vote." Mr. Hughes voted with explanation. The ordinance was passed by the fol lowing vote: Yeas Miller, Snattinger, Chaney, Warner, Roundtree, Swenson, and Hughes. Nays Betts, ileigan, Myers and Weber. , OTHER ORDINANCES PASSED. While the council had its hand in it also passed an ordinance against gamb lers and gambling rooms of any and all kindm This ordinance makes it an offense punishable by a fine of from $10 to $300 to be caught in a room where gambling is going on. An ordinance providing for the elec tion to be held April 2 for the purpose of voting on $70,000 bonds for the Santa Fe shops w-as passed and an ordinance taking In three more small tracts of land in the "Strip" also passed. CHARGES AGAINST MAG AW. Chief of Police Stahl. who was again not confirmed, filed written charges against Police Judge Magaw last night. The council heard the charges read and then decided to have the trial of ihri judge March 13. The law provides that when charges are filed against an oiTi cer the council shall investigate within ten days. The charges as filed are: "That C. A. Magaw, as police judge of the city shows a prejudice in favor of persons charged with unlawful sale of intoxicating liquor in that the light est punishment is imposed upon, suca persons, no matter how often the same person is brought before him for the same offense." Chief Stahl cites a num ber of cases from the police record to piove this statement. He also charges that Judge Magaw "discharged jointists who were charged with selling liquor when the testimony was clear, direct arid positive; that he accepted bonds without proper investi gation as to financial responsibilities cf the bondsmen; that he was in collusion with the attorney representing defend ants charged with selling liquor; with collusion with George Klauer, by sign ing a bond before arrest was made, with direction that when arrest was made to fill out and consider the bond approved; that Judge Magaw has now a large number of cases under advise ment that he had been holding some four weeks when no testimony was of fered by the defendants." In the written charges after .each charge Chief Stahl refers to the cases giving names and dates. When the motion was made that the council investigate the charges, Mr. Snattinger objected. He said that just because Stahl cculd not be confirmed and could not do the work he- was ap pointed to do he w-as trying to throw the blame on the police court. He said that the police did nothing but pay at tention to whisky cases and that tr.e city was not properly protected on thai account. "I do not believe the charges are made in good faith and do not be lieve they amount to much. The ch'cf is looking for a. place to lay the blame for his failure and has selected the po lice judge." Remarks were made by other coun cilmen not very complimentary to Chief Stahl, but they thought it best to make the investigation as it was no more than fair to Judge Magaw. MINOR MATTERS. ' W. A.

Judge Moses Hallett was ap pointed executor. Thomas S.
