Perhaps They Know theHig-hwaymen
and Perhaps They Do Not
Another highway robbery occurred In
Topeka last night. They are becoming
very common. This time it was James
Patterson who lives on North Van Btiren
street. He was held up and robbed of
$S In money by two negroes at 11
o'clock last night in front of the Chris
tian church in orth Topeka. The
netrroes put a gun in his face and then
went through his pockets. He had been
at a dance at Barrett's hall and was on
his way home w hen the robbers stopped
him. He offered no resistance for he
saw that it would be useless.
The police think they know who did
the work but they have not found the
men. It may be the man who is re
sponsible for the case of infanticide or
the. man who held up Ahkeny or the
man who robbed the Singer sewing ma
chine office they are not sure.
Kansas Exposition Company Grateful
With Latest Breath.
The board of directors of the Kansas
Semi-Centennial Exposition company at
their last meeting in P. O. Coburn's
oflice in the state house adopted the fol
lowing resolution:
'P.esolved. That the heartfelt thanks
of the directors of the Kansas Exposi
tion association are most gratefully ten
dered to the. many nesvspapers of Kansas
that have given our effort to bring to
pass in l'Mi an exposition worthy of our
state so much of earnest, enthusiastic
and loyal support. We realize that while
we have fallen far short of the purpose
hoped for, the newspapers of Kansas
have, as a rule, been in sympathy with
our undertaking and have ungrudgingly
given it every encouragement."
Bonds Fixed Up in the District
It was found that not so many bonds
were forfeited in the district court yes
terday as was thought.
It was supposed at first that about
60 bonus were forfeited but later it was
found that most of them had been )"
r.ewed. Two bonds, however, were for
feited. The bonds of Caroline Hercules,
charged with larceny, and Pert Parker,
charged with burglary. They were for
Sr.OO each.
From the Chicago Chronicle.
Senator Spooner, of Wisconsin, 1s a
gallant man at all times, and is especial
ly so when he encounters a woman in
distress. Some time ago, when the Na
tional Convention of the Woman's Chris
tian Temperance I'nion was in session,
one of the California delegates, an elder
ly woman, went into a restaurant, look
ed the bill of fare over carefully and or-
f "Hnw m:rtv"" t;k-trt tit wftifeT.
"Oh," she said, remembering the dimin
utive oyster of California, "I guess a
dozen and a half wiil do."
The waiter lifted his eyebrows, but
took the order back to the kitchen. In
due time he appeared with an enormous
platter full of fried oysters each half as
iaree as a man's head.
The California woman nearly fainted.
"Take them away," she gasped. "I
never, never ordered that great mass of
food "
"That's a dozen and a half fried oys
ters, ma'am," the waiter replied.
There was some hysterical but vain
argument on the part of the delegate
from California.
She was told she w-ould have to pay
for the oysters, but she needn't eat them
unless she chose to do so.
Just then Senator Spooner came in
and sat down at the next table. The
Woman's Christian Science Temperance
Union deleuate. almost in tears, leaned
over and asked imploringly: "Oh, sir, do
you like fried oysters?"
Senator Spooner started. "I have eaten
them, madam," he replied with dignity.
"Then piease buy these; please, please
"But," said the senator, laughing. "I
never eat them now, for I find they pro
mote indigestion."
The woman exhibited her white ribbon
badge and implored again: "Oh, you
haven't eaten anything yet; please buy
"Well, I'll buy them, but I assure you,
madam, I do not contract to eat them."
And he paid the check, while the dele
gate from California almost ran out of
the restaurant.
Kentuckian Fires With Fatal Effect
From a Distance of 100 Tards.
Cairo. 111.. March 2f. Henry Eddington
enme down fr m Pnducah. Ky., yesterday
afternoon for the express purpose of kill
insr his wife, and succeeded fn accomp
lishing his mission. His wife had left
Padueah several days tnefore a.s cook fo
a family making a. trip down the river
in a houseboat.
Eddinaton came down on a steamboat
in search of her. and called on the police
to protect hint in his interview wiin hi
wife. As he was armed with a Winches
ter rifle, the officers required him to leave
it at headquarters. The interview wa .
apparently unsn i i-f aetory .an.l he return-'d
to the station saying he would' leave town.
Securing: his pun, he went back to the
boat about dark and, seeing his wdfft
standing in the how, fired at her from a
distance of l' yards, killing her instantly.
Then, leaping into a skirl, he escaped to
Kentucky. "
Mrs Sheldon, tfca SuiTrai?1. t, Ti.rks

Mrs. Li:':e !.: .vho, it will ie
i'eir.cnib..-j'( J. , . s'l Jaw j industriously
in the state libr-ut y so:n- time ago, da
ciaies the attorney i.r nral is wrens' con
certing the foreign woman vote in To
peka "If he is correctly reported," says she,
"lis opinion is 'that the wife of a for
eigner, who has taken out his first nat
uralization papers only, is not entitie.1
to vote at municipal elections,' although
'the law says, men who have taken out
their first papers may vote."
"Re rests his opinion it seems on the
status of the wife as to naturalization.
"Generally speaking, the law of the cit
izenship of the wife is that 'the status
of the iiusliarid is the statti3 of the wife.'
In ihe matter of naturalization, the de
claration cf the husband to become a
citizen, if made in accordance with the
law of the "United States, iusures to the
benefit of the wife.
"Section 5!1SS of the Revised Statutes
of the Pnited States is to this effect.
'When any alien who has complied with
the first condition specified in section
tw.-r.ty-ont' hundred and sixty-five die3
before he is actually naturalized, tl:e
widow and the children of such alien
shah be considered as citizens of the
United States and shall be. entitled to all
rights and privileges as such, upon tak
ing ihe oaths prescribed by Jaw.' It is
cleat from this that the wife is ad
varced toward citizenship by the act of
the husband declaring his intention to
become a citizen just as far as he is
".'.s to the qualifications of the wife if
the husband be living, the supreme court
of the United Sta'ics has said that it was
only necessary that the woman should
be a person of the class or race permit
ted to be naturalized by existing laws,
and that In respect to the qualifications
arising out of the conduct or opiniors,
beirg the wife of a citizen, she is regard
ed as qualified for citizenship and there
fore considered a citizen.' That is to say,
the husband's qualifications inure to he
benefit also, and whatever the federal
lac and courts say about naturalization
'goes' in Kansas.
'This opinion of the attorney general
reminds me of one rendered two yeats
ago as to the right cf women to vote for
the candidate for judge of the court of
Topeka. His opinion was that it would
be illegal for women to vote for the oifi
cer of this court for the reason that it
was a township office, and that lie
would bt- a township, officer. When the
question whether the judge of the cHy
court "was a township officer or not
reached the supreme court Mr. Oodard
was not sustained in his opinion, and the
necessary inference is that the women
had a-right to vote for such candidate.
"While I think the attorney general
was right in that case, and the supreme
court was wrong in its decision, it
shows that the proper thing for the wo
rn er to do. is to go to the polls and of
fer to vote, and, if the vote is rejected,
to enter a protest, so that the candidate
for whom they wish to vote many have
the legality of their vote decided by the
COUl t.
"I think the attorney general is wrong
in his opinion this time, but the supreme
court may not sustain him and the wo
men may, unnecessarily lose their votes
if they abide by his opinion.".

! city fj jJiicil Must Decide About
IMrteenth Street Park.
The council meeting Monday night 'will
be a busy one and will probably keep
the members until a late hour unless
they adjourn to hear the concert by the
Marine band. There will be a great
deal of routine business and some special
The principal thing which will be con
sidered, or, at least, which will be
brought before the council will be the
question relative to the park located be
tween Thirteenth, Fifteenth, Fillmore
ajid Clay streets. For some time the
establishment of thi3 park has been a
question before the park board and the
city council. The people who live in that
neighborhood decided that they wanted
a park at that location and they raised
money and bought equities on the land.
A mortgage -for S'0,000 was given by
them and was assumed by the city. The
city abeady owns a small part of the
land which is on Thirteenth street and
they have had the street commissioner
fill a deep guliy on that part. There are
a few lots in tie tract which are not
under control of the city and they will
condemn these lots.
The last legislature was not kind to
cities of the first class and passed very
little legislation which was of benefit to
them, but they did pass the bill allowing
cities of the lirst class to create benefit
districts for park purposes and the city
now proposes to do that in the case of
the park in question.
There are six lots at the corner of
Thirteenth and Fillmore which belong to
Mr. Quinton and one lot on the corner
of Fifteenth and Clay which belongs to
the street car company. These are the
lots which the city will condemn. The
street car company is willing to give the
lot they have to the city for the benefit
of the park, but they can not do so
without the censent of the stockholders
of the company. It will be condemned
and will be assessed so low that it wiil
cost the city very liitle. The lots b,'
longing to Mr. Quinton will be assessed
at actual value and the city will pay
for them. The street car track cuts both
corners of the park. but they have agreed
to move the track so that it will not in
terfere with the park in any way.
The park commission and the people
who live in the neighborhood are pushing
the matter and all of thecouncil are in
favor of it, so there is little danger that
it will not go through. There is some
objection by people who object to the
increase of taxes which the completion
of the park will cause, but they are in
the minority and the chances seem to
be that the city wil! get the park and
will gradually beautify ic.
The benefit district which will be as
sessed for the. park fund will be all of
that part of the city lying west of Kan
sas avenue and south of Tenth street.
This is the present talk concerning the
park, but the council may change it.
The complaints will come before the
council and will be heard and consid
ered either Monday night or Friday
night. The present council is anxious
to complete the deal for .the park and
put it in such shape that the patk com
mission can go ahead with its work in
making it a pretty place. The present
council started the deal and. as they will
know more of it than the next council
will, they will try to rush it through.
The entire cost to the city for the big
tract will not be more than $12,000.
Causes Destruction of Pottery "Plant
by Fire.
Akron, March 2S. The Diamond Pot
tery plant was totally destroyed by fire
last night. The fire originated in waste
soaked in oil placed in various parts
of the building. A well dressed man was
noticed loitering about the place some
time before the fire started. Earlier in
the evening an attempt was made to
dynamite the pottery of the Robinson
Merrill company. The watchman dis
covered sticks of dynamite tdaced in
various parts of the main building be
fore the fuses had been ignited.
At other factories oil soaked waste
was found in various sections of the
buildings. The police believe a lunatic
is doing the work.

Crosby's store. He left the store Tues
day evening at the usual time and went
to the store of his brother. W. F. Roehr,

seen at the Rock Island depot early in
the evening. Mr. Roehr is a young man

Marine Band Meeting With Unqual
ified Favor. ,
Two acts of Lieut. Wm. H. Santel
mann this week during the tour of the
United States Marine band have accent
ed his especial fitness in addition to his
riusical attainments to be at the head
of our national band. In Cincinnati,
when presented with a iiag, the leader
did not say a word in reply, but turn
ing to his splendid body of musicians,
waved his baton, and "The Star
Spangled Banner" spoke the band's ac
knowledgment. A pretty act in In
dianapolis Wednesday is described in
part by the Indianapolis Journal thus:
Surrounded by .a thousand citizens,
the body of the lata Gen. Benjamin
Harrison, now lying in a sepulcher of
stone at the foot of classic Crown Hill,
was paid a beautiful tribute yesterday
afternoon by the United States Marine
band, which during General Harrison's
term of official life in the national cap
ital furnished the music for high gov
ernmental functions. This band was
greatly liked by the ex-president, who
rarely missed one of its concerts. The
distinguished man was personally ac
quainted with Lieut. Wm. H. Santel
mann, director of the band, and Lieut.
Santelmann felt moved to pay a last
tribute of respect to his dead friend
and eminent patron by causing the
band to play appropriate airs over the
A solemn hush fell over the assembled
multitude when the seventy-four splen
did looking men, clad in light blue fa
tigue uniforms, wearing white belts and
regulation forage caps, marched with
solemn, martial tread to the Harrison
lot and then countermarched so as to
bring them in a position immediately
facing the monument. Without a word
the leader waved his baton and the ad
mirably drilled body of musicians gave
forth the entrancing melody of "The
Star Spangled Banner." played with
fitting modulation. When the last sweet
strains of the patriotic number had died
away the familiar notes of "Rock -of
Ages" floated out on the crisp air and
the people assembled stirred involun
tarily as thev remembered that this was
one of General Harrison's favorite
hymns. Then came the closing selec
tion. "Xearer. my God. to Thee," ren-dere-d
so exquisitely that it seemed in
deed a harmonic prayer. At the con
clusion of this number the band left
the cemetery at once and took cars for
the city.
Twice as large an audience as had
before been in Tomlinson hall for a con
cert greeted the band in Indianapolis.
So tremendous was the band's success
that twenty-three numbers in all were
given, when but nine were on the pro
gramme. Miss Amy Whaley, soprano,
and Jean B. H. Moeremans, saxophonist,
who are also the soloists here next
Menrlay night, had to give three selec
tions each before they were allowed
to go.
The great sale of seals for the band's
engagement at the Auditc-rium Monday
night indicates people here are favor
able to big attractions at moderate
prices. Such a success will help to se
cure great entertainments for the city.
Some chairs are still to be had.
Japan Will Increase Her Army
in China 50 Per Cent.
Tokio, March 29. The newspapers
here say it is proposed to relieve the
Japanese troops in the Chinese province
of Pe Chi Li by a force EO per cent,
Although May is the usual month in
which the relief of the force at Seoul
takes place, the relief of the troops
there will take place immediately.
Three officers of the headquarters staff
will also proceed to Corea.
These movements with the activity
at the arsenals is taken to point to the
adoption of a strong policy by Japan.
That is What Russian Occupation of
Manchuria is Now Called.
AVashington, March 29. It is stated on
excellent Russian authority that the
Manchurian convention has from the
first been regarded simply as a modus
vivendi. It was this pha.se cf the sub
ject which Count Cassini brought to the
attention of Secretary Hay yesterday,
and simultaneously it appears to have
been impressed upon the minds of the
British officials, as Lord Lansdowne an
nounced to the house of lords that the
convention viewed as a modus vivendi
might not present the objections here
tofore held against it. The Russian au
thorities at Washington have all along
construed the convention as a modus
vivendi, although Count Cassini has
now made this rather plainer to Secre
tary Hay. It is explained that the term
modus vivendi. as applying to the pres
ent convention, means that abnormal
conditions have arisen in Manchuria,
and that normal conditions can best be
restored by means of a modus.
The chief purpose of the modus, it is
explained would be to provide for" the
eva uation of Manchuria by the Russian
troops as their presence is part of tn-
abnormal conditions brought by the dis
turbances. But with these forces with
drawn Russia expects that assurances
will be given that quiet will be maintain
ed and that the former normal cenditior
wil be in fact restored. When the old
state of things is thus restored it is the
Russian view that the modus vivendi
will cease to operate as its purpose w dl
have been secured of correcting the ab
normal conditions brought about by the
Chinese outbreak and the dispatch of a
large Russian force to different
points in the province. It is said that
the integrity of China wdll be complete
ly preserved and that nothing in the na
ture of a Russian protectorate or suz
erainty wdll exist.
Xeither the Russian ambassador nor
the Chinese minister ha.s received any
word as to the final action on the con
vention. The Chinese minister was 3t
the state department trday baying re
