lieaUiiuarrers of the sultan and the resi
dences of many of the people being dec
orated with fiajis. the stars and stripes
floating throughout the town,- while
thousands of fir -oraek- rs were exploded
In all directions. it was a beautiful
fummer morning, and when the sultan

arrival of the last launch, a cutter was
font with the secretary of the coramis
t ion to invite the sultan to visit the ship.

in gold and purple, and decorated with
Jewels. He presented a comic opera
aspect as he came on board, followed
by his ministers and a score cf relatives
in motley court array. They were gre?t
ed with a salute of 17 guns. Commis
sioner Taft explained to hi majesty
that there was no disposition, on the part
-f the members to mi erf ere with the
ndmlnlsrration cf the sultan's affairs, or
1 ne habit.-, customs and religion, of the
people. He said that the only motive
poverning The commission was the pros
pective pr-)sperHy and happiness of the
people of the ftulu islands, and that the
people of the United Slates expected the
treaty to be strictly observed. The sul
tan then thanked Commissioner Taft,
and spoke proudly of the cable and
other improvements introduced by the
Americans, adding that his best friends
were the military officials ami that lie
expected to abide by the decision of the
commissioners and to follow their ad
vice. His majesty then inspected the
ship and during the afternoon received

Mild Winter Makes Shortage in
Natural Supply Prices For
Approaching Season.
The mild weather of the past -winter
has been unfortunate for ice dealers who
depend upon a, harvest of the natural
product. The same conditions have
been correspondingly favorable to the
ice makers of Kansas and western Mis
souri. Inquiries recently made of people
interested in these lines elicit the fact
that there is a bis shortage of the crop
of natural ice.
It is said that forty thousand tons less
than usual vvtre cut this seas en at (Ma
la, and that there is a similar shortage
of about iifty thousand tons in Kansas
on the Missouii river betv.-e',.n St. Jcseph
ami Kansas City. At Lawrence, in this
state, where are located several large ice
stcratse houses, it is understood ito ice
whatever was harvested. At Topeka the
estimate is that the ice companies put
up about fifteen hundred toils- of thin
natural ie. which is available for little
use aside from the icing- of cars and such

Attorney Evans of the Rock
Island in Washington.
Reports Favorably on the Re
survey of Indian Lands.
Permission Asked For a Sew
Line of Railroad.
New Freight Depot to Be Built
at Lawrence.
Press dispatches from Washington, D.
C, say that V. F. Evans, assistant at
torney for the Rock Island, is conferring
with the interior department regarding
the opening of the Kiowa-Comanclie-Apache
Several weeks ago Mr. Evans repre
senting the Rock Island road signed a
contract with the government by which
the Rock Island people were to make
the resurvey of the Indian lands about
to be opened. A large number of sur
veyors have been rushed into the terri
tory and the work has been going on
From the pre ress made he feels war
ranted in sayint, that the surveying work
will be completed by the last of June,
but in any event will be tlroshed before
August 6. the time when the reservation
is to be opened by proclamation. In
spector Ntssler, who is following the
surveyors in the work of alloting the
lands to the Indians, is ah'.o making sat
isfactory progress. Mr. Evans believes
Mr. Nessier will be throuch with that
pai-t of the woik as soon as the'survt y
ing is dore. Mr. Nessier is following
cluf-e bi. hind the surveyors with his corps
of assistants, and the ladiat.s are given
tli? lands they desire as rapidly as they
car. be satisfied and indicate their choice.
While in Washin.ton the department

relative to the work of surveying '.lie
Wkbita reservation. It is the d -sire of.
the government to open the Wichita
reservation to settlement at the same
time the iviowa and Cormaiche and
Apache reservation is opened. At the
last session of congress SO.Ol'O was ap
propriated for the work cf allotment and
survt. and this added to the $10.K)i
which remained of the fund previously
appropriated, made it possible for the
government to proceed with tre work
as bt fore, fojn? qupstio.i has arisen as
to whether the department has authority
in law for lt-ttir.g a contract for the sur
veying work, and the matter has been
referred to the department of justice.
In any vent it is believed Mr. Evans
wiil do the work. Xf no other way can
be found he ar-d his corps of surveyors
will be employed by the day. with a
definite und. i standing as to the amount
to be done each clay. a;d with a view to
the ultimate cost falling below the
cmouc. appropriated.
From the txpicssions of Mr. Evans to
day it is possible the total cost of the
work will not exceed ' J2C.G00. The road
he represents is anxious a;:d admitted
ly from a selfish standpoint to have the
cc.ur.try opened to settlement, and the
department has used this fact to get co-or.--!
at ion in the worl:. much to the ad
vantage of the government and affecting

Mr. Plva'-fi a f.-i filed with the depart
mem maps cf d-. finite location for twenty-five

ritory. fr-m Ar.auarka to Fort Sill, and
hopes to have tarly approval of the loca
tion, so that the road may proceed with
oirsli uction as rapidly as possible. He
beii .yes that ti.e e.per.irg of the Kiowa,
Comanche and Apache and Wichita
reservations will mean great things for

Safsty System For Santa Fe. and

Wichita. March 2s. The Santa Fe and
Rrek Islcnd. jointly, are lettic a con
tract for the construction of an interlock

Island crosses tiie mam line of the Santa

same lime wili be a saving of about three

"Work of Inspecting- G. C. fe S. F.
Time-Pieces Completed.
Annual watch inspection on the G., C.
&. S. V. line :f the Santa Fe system has
been completed. Four hundred and fifty
seven watches were found in reliable con
dition: thirty-three were turned over to
inspectors fur repairs and thirty-seven
were condemned. The condemned watches
were timepieces that were not up to the
standard in gracie. but were heretofore
passed on account of their good timekeep
ing; faihng to make a given rate this
year, were ruled out of service. The Santa
Fe s well known system of watch inspec
tion gives every make or kind of watch a
fair chance. No watches are passed on
account of name on the plates or other
feature of recommendation. Merit is th
only point of recognition. A watch may
be ornamented with jewels innumerable,
fancy dial and handsome hands, but if it
would not run within prescribed rules in
three piositions. the jewels and other em
beiiishments would not gain it an Intro
duction into the Santa .Fe's roll of honor.
The company established se-enteen jew
els as minimum so far as jewels are con
cerned, but the next and most important
virtue is timekeeping that's the secret.
It used to lie that employes would pur
chase the most elaborate eases and dials,
but utility is the motto now days, and
the best movements and plain case with
out frills or gewgaws arf the only points
which appeal to pratie&d railroad men.
The Santa Fe's time service has been a
revelation to the watch world, and has
been copied by little and big roads every
where. The Boston & Maine railroad
put it in vogue, and placed ll.AuO of Its
employes under its provisions. The
progress ot railroads includes a careful
conduct of time necessities as well as
special conveniences for passenger and
freight traffic, and the -Santa Fe reaches
out for the highest character In them all.
Northern Pacific and Great Northern
Want Control.
New York, March 2S. Tiie Evenin?
Post says:
Burlington and Northern Pacific
shares were etrong- and active on th
revival of the reports that there would
be a lease of the Burlington by the
Northern, Pacific and Great Northern
railways.. No official confirmation of
these reports could be obtained today,
and important stockholding interests in
the Burlington denied having informa
tion that any offer had been made for
the Burlington railway. It may also be
said that neither the Great Northern or
the Northern Pacific have considered
such a lease or terms for taking over the
Burlington. ; . ,
A strong effort is underway, however
to secure control of the Burlington and
to turn It over to the Northern Pacific
and the Great Northern. . These propos
als originate with President J. J. Hill
and the negotiations are entirely in his
hands. Whether he will be successful in
inducing the present management of the
Burlington to accept his proposals re
mains to be seen. It is believed that Mr.
Hill is prepared to bid a high cash price
f or Burlington, to lease it at a specified
guaranteed rental or to exchange the
Ftock for bondsj as the Lake Shore at d
Michigan Central was -acquired by the
New York Central.
Reduction in Horse Kates.
A reduction in the rate on horses from
the state of Washington to points in th
east has been announced by the Great
Northern road. Since the outbreak of the
Spanish-American war the Great North
ern's traffic in horses has been exceed
ingly large. Last season's traffic over th
Great Northern was estimated at twenty
Pve train loads of horses. The traffic not
only proved profitable for the road, but
for the horse breeders of central and
easteru Washington, and they have gone
into that line of stroek raising quite ex
tensively. The -Great Northern is anxious
to encournse them all it can. It is with
that object in view- the reduction in rate
has been det ided upon. According to the
new tariff issued th - rate will le $142 fnt
a i hirtv-foot car. $15'! for a thirty-three
foot car and 171 for a thirty-six-foot car
to St. P-Hil. To Chicago the rates will bft
ibW. S1-2 end ?n resoectively. The old
rates were JITl.uO. $lNi.9 and re
spectively, to St. Paul, and S2ey, $214 and
respertiv-elv. to Chicago. The new
rates will en into effect April 1. The
Northern I'aciiic will meet these rate
and apply them from Montana.

Rheumatism Cured in 24 Hours.
T. J. Blackmore, of Haller & Blackmore,
Pittsburg, Pa., says: "A short time since
I procured a bottle of Mystic Cure. It got
me out of the house in 24 hours. I took
to my bed with rheumatism nine months
ago and the Mystic Cure is the only medi
cine that did me any good.- I had five of
the best physicians in the city, but I re
ceived very little relief from them. I know
the Mystic Cure to be what it is repre
sented and take pleasure in recommending
It to other poor sufferers." Sold by Swift

Hold a Meeting to Look After Legis
lative "Expenses."
The sheriffs of Kansas had a meeting
here yesterday to attend to business mat
ters the business matters were in refer
ence to making assessments for the ex-
enses attached to the lobby which was
lere during the session of the legislature.
The lobby had to have its expenses and
the sheriffs were only too willing to put
up the amount providing the biennial
election law will stick.
The sheriffs in the stae got out mighty
well in the last session: the parole of
ficer was knocked out. and that meant
that they would still get their fees for
watching the prisoners who were parole
from the Reform school and the peniten
tiary, but, best of all, they gut the bien
nial election bill through, and that meant
that they wouid have an extended term of
one year on the office which they now
hold. Of course that did not affect the
officers who were holding their first terms
as much as it did the ones who are now
serving the second term, but they were all
affected to a certain extent, and that ex
tent was enough to make them all favor
the biennial election law.
They were Interested In the biennial
law so much that they talked of nothing
else. -If Mr. Garver decides that the law
Is unconstitutional the .sheriff's propose to
show. Mr. Garver that they are from Mis
souri. They will not willingly give up a
term-of office without an effort, and they
will stand pa.t until the case Is decided
by the supreme court and that is where
it will go if the men who think they can
get the nomination for county office in
their respective counties want to push it
that far.
As It stands now, the sheriffs are very
well satisfied and they are willing to let
the matter rest on the law as it was in
tended. It would be impossible to meet a
sheriff of Kansas who would not say that
the biennial election law would not save
$1125, OUT, a year to the state, and, although
it may benefit -the sheriffs who are now
in office, there is no question but the
are right. .
Three : Thousand Express Sympath y
With Oppressed Countrymen.
New York, March 28. Fully 3.000 peo
ple were crowded into the new Irving
ball last night at a mass meeting of
Russian sympathizers.
The object of the meeting was to dis
cuss the recent political demonstrations
in St. Petersburg. Vladmir Stalechnik
off presided at the meeting. He is a
Russian nobleman, now an architect by
profession, who was prominently con
nected with the Nihilist movement in
that country and who fled some years
ago In order to save himself from being
transported to Siberia. Fully one-third
of the audience were women and they
were enthusiastic in their applause as
the men and all the addresses were en
thusiastically received.
The chairman in his opening remarks
said that he wanted it understood that
he and his colleagues are opposed to
violence. "But what can we do whon
our friends and relatives are thrown into
Jail, driven into insanity or suicide; or
drafted into the army, or hustled off to
Siberia because we ask better conditions
or higher wages?" he asked. "We .ire op
posed to violence," he said, "but there
are times when violence is necessary."
The same people who assassinated
Nicholas I sent letters of sympathy to
this country and universally condemned
the act when Garfield was killed by Gui
teau, because the conditions in this coun
try did not warrant such action. -
The principal address of the evening
was given in English by Abraham Cahan
and his speech, by a vote, was adopted
as the sentiment of the meeting. He
"It is not the czar but czarism. It Is
not the throne, but the system. This
system is personified in those who make
a cat's paw of Nicholas H for if there is
one man in the empire who is not the
master of Russia it is the czar. The
system of which Nicholas is the figure
head is embodied in Poboyodonostzeff.
The Russian government is agovernment
of the tenth century, while the European
culture of today is the culture of the
"Russia is made up of people who have
the same hopes and aspirations as those
of other countries and the descrepancy
between the mental and spiritual status
of the people and the political regime is
at the bottom of the situation.
"But the Americen spirit of 177S Is be
ing revived there. The educated classes
are panting for breath and the working
people want the right to struggle for
the improvement of their lot. Hence the
bond between the two."
