Money to Ba Raised by Increased Duties on Coal and Spirits. New York, April 18. Ministers and members of parliament are already gathering for the budget speech today, says the Tribune's London correspon dent. Sir Michael Hicks-Beach is re vising his estimates, and putting the finishing touches on the budget. Lord Lansdowne has returned and there wiil be a full attendance at the cabinet meeting tomorrow. Sir Michael Hicks Beach has kept his official secrets so closely that the budget speculators are working in the dark. Export duties on coal, increased duties on tea, tobacco and spirits, the inclusion of sugar in the schedules, indirect taxation and in creased taxation of incomes are pre dicted on the eve of the resumption of the session; but there is no authoritative information, and some of these guesses will prove inconsequent, for the chan cellor of the exchequer is certain to find it more comfortable to borrow money liberally than overwhelm the country with fresh taxation, when the end of the war is not in sight. Uncertainty pre vails in the Welsh and Lancashire coal districts and the Liverpool sugar mar ket and commercial circles generally. Sir Michael Hicks-Beach will be faced with a united Liberal front bench. Sir1 Henry Campbell-Bannerman having re turned in improved health and Sir Wil liam Vernon Harcourt being in fine fighting form. Much depends upon the reception of the budget speech by the country. The promotion of Mr. Chamberlain to the leadership of the commons and the ele vation of Mr. Balfour to the peerage will be hastened if the budget proves high ly unsatisfactory to the nation. Military clubs are also agog over Gen eral Roberts' dispatches on the war and the long list of commendations. Lord Methuen's friends are jubilant. and Gen. Bulier's partisans are disconcerted by the coolness of General Roberts' refer ence to him. It is hardly credible that General Buller desired his successor in the chief command to patronize him. He attend ed Winst'n ChurchiU's lecture at the United Service Institution with many other military men, and seemed to be bearing up bravely. AN EXCELLENT LECTURE. Prof. Rogers, a Noted Scholar, at M. E. Church Friday Night Professor Robert W. Rogers will lec ture on "The Bible and the Buried Cities of the East" at the First Meth odist church on Friday evening at eight o'clock. This wiil a fiord the people of Topeka an opportunity of hearing a dis tinguished scholar on a great subject. Irofessor Rc2vrs stands in the first rank of scholarship in the field of oriental history and Biblical archaeology. He took his deeree of Ph. D. in the Uni versity of Leipsic: he is Feilcw of the Royal Geographical S'ciety of Eneland; and his recently published work, of two volumes, on the "History of Babylonia and Assyria" Is reckoned by the critics to be the ablest work on that subject. Prof. Rogers is tilling a series of engage ments through the west. He lectured in Lincoln a few days ao to an audience of nearly two thousand. On Tuesday night he lectured far the State University at Lawrence. He is to spend a few days in Topeka, befc.re going to other engagements, and has kindly con sented at the earnest request of Dr. Sic Farland and Rev. J. A. Stavely to give this lecture on Friday night. The lecture wiil be free and the. public is cordially invited. HEAL ESTATE TRANSFERS. E. M. Topliff to F. S. Davis. $11,000 lots 20-ll-l;'.-la and s.

TOPEKA AND THE SANTA FE Also Something About General Man ager Sludge. The following complimentary notice about Topeka, the Santa Fe and General Manager Mudge appears as a special article in a number of eastern papers: "Who will succeed J. M. Barr as third vice president of the Santa Fe is the query which is just now absorbing the attention of railroad men and the pub lic generally. The Santa Fe is the well spring of Topeka, and the country through which it passes, and there ia hardly a business man who does not take interest in the company's welfare and pride in Its progress. The pay-roll in Topeka is next to a pension disburse ment and 'pay-day' means more in one sense to the citizens than any national holiday on the calendar. "The elaborate shops voted for at the recent city election, by practically a un animous vote, and which are already in course of construction, mean a double 'pay-day' for the future and a solidity to the business interests of Topeka, that every person appreciates. The present shops employ nearly 2.500 men, while th-i rolls of the general office and other de partments swell the figures two-fold. "The Topeka shops employ the cream of skilled labor and build engines from the raw material. It is a matter of his tory that locomotives designed by the company's expert, Mr. John Player, sup erintendent of machinery, and built un der hi3 supervision, are equal to the pro duct of any plant in the world. The freight car output is not by any means a side issue. They are, like the engines, built from the rough, the most modern machinery being in service for their con struction. They are bolted by air and painted by air, veritably harnessing the Kansas cyclone to push the work. The new shops will double the present labor and consequent results, and bring addi tional features in the matter of ma chinery, methods and products not here tofore possible, insuring a greater To peka, and a greater Santa Fe, a mutual tie at once harmonious with prosperity and confidence one with the other. "The Santa Fe is a Kansas conception and the state at large is interested in its success. It had hardly got the suivey finished when the present general mana ger, Mr. II. U. Mudge secured employ ment as a water carrie" to the track lay ers. The force of American brawn and a tendency to 'move or' got him a posi tion a little later as section foreman, where he was schooled in track-service, bringing, anil road-bed philosophy. He was next initiated as agent operator and dispatcher, sol ving an pmple apprentice ship. His attention being drawn to train service, he served as brakeman and conductor. The training thus ac quired, equipped him for greater respon sibilities and wider fields. Step by step he steadily advanced. From trainmas ter to division superintendent, in the la ter capacity being changed frequently from point to point to meet the demand for more ability in management. In due course he was made general superin tendent which position he held with special credit until appointed general manager January 1. 1P00. In all his ser vice his superior officer3 freely admitted that they 'could always learn something from Mudge." Today he is carded as third vice president to succeed Mr. Barr. He deserves the promotion. "President Ripley is a keen observer and keeps close note of the personnel of his staff. He is familiar with Mr. Mudge's ability and is aware of the har mony the appointment would insur? among the employes, to say nothing of the able administration Mr. Mudge would surely effect. It is a well known fact that manv railroad men of ac knowlejged merit, have a fad or spec ialty. One will be distinguished for his prot1cKjncy upon maintenance, another upon passenger traffic, etc., etc.. but Mr. Mudge is a combination of them all Plain, honest and faithful, he has spent the best part of his life, helping in a masterly way, to make the Santa Fe the greatest railway in the world." PALACE BURNED. Member of Von -Waldersee's Staff Perished in the Fire. Washington, April IS. The sta'e de partment has received a cablegram from Mr. Sc.uire, charge d'affaires at Pek'n, announcing that the empress palace, oc cupied by Count Von VVaklorsee. was totally destroyed by fire and that p member of Count Von Waldersee's staff was Lurned to death.

New York, April 18. F. B. Loomis, United States minister to Venezuela seems to be having a hard time with his interviewers. A New York special from San Juan, Porto Rico, says that before sailing from that port Mr. Loom. is paid a visit to the office of the San Juan News, where he met the correspondents of the New York Herald and the Asso ciated Press and another correspondent. He taiked for "an hour in the presence of the three, commenting on President Castro's policy and the probabilit of a rebellion within a year. His statements were taken in shorthand and transcripts were sent to the New York Herald and the Associated Press." On Mr. Loom is' arrival In New York he denied very circumstantially these interviews, both to the Associated Press and New York Mail and Express, to the latter saying: "A reporter from the Associated Press, who, I am informed, is also editor of the San Juan News, came aboard the Scor pion Just before we came away. I told him that I had nothing to say on the asphalt question, or of General Castro or of anything else of a diplomatic charac ter." Now Mr. Mr. Loomia issues the follow ing cord: 1 "New York. April 17. I wish to cor r"ect an error that appears in the inter view with me in today's Mail and Ex press. I am quoting as saying: 'A re porter from the Associated Press, who I am also informed is the editor of the San Juan News, came aboard, etc' Now, what I did say to the Mail and Express reporter was that a man who represent ed himself to be an Associated Press re porter, came aboard the gunboat Scor pion "at San Juan and whom I afterward learned was not an Associated Press re porter. I thought that I would tell yon this so that the error would not be cop ied and repeated." NEW MEMBERS WELCOMED. Reception and Social Hour at First Presbyterian Church. A reception to one hundred and fifteen new members was held last evening in the parlors of the First Presbyterian church. The membership of the church body, has increased greatly since last Deeemberr when Evangelists Fotter and Bilhorn held their union revival meet ings. Resides this additions have been made from other parts of the country and it was the object of last evening's social to welcome these new comers. The evening was spent chiefly in a social way. A short informal program was given, consisting of songs by the male chorus of the church, two vocal soles by Mrs. P. H. Adams and recita tions by 'Miss Dora Moffett. After this Mrs. A. L. Redden was called upon and gave a short explanation regarding her efforts to secure cushions for the re maining news not already supplied. Mrs. Redden has been successful in raising by donations sufficient money for this purpf.se, and next Sunday the new cushions will be in place. This part of the meeting was presided over by A. K. Rodgers- At the conclusion of the in formal programme, refreshments were served. Lately the church has undertaken the support of a foreign missionary. Chas. R. Pittman of McConnellsburg, Pa., was sent out last fall by the Presbyterian board of foreign missions and a few weeks ago the First Presbyterian church of Topeka undertook to relieve the board of the expense of supporting htm. He is a graduate of Princeton and is stationed at Fabriz, Persia. He re ceives ?t"67 annually for his services, and all this with the exception o" about $2.i0 has already been raised. The reception of last evening was largely attended. LABOR DAY IN RUSSIA. Workmen Demand Half Holiday and Full Pay Kay 1. London, April 1. A dispatch to Reu ter's agency from St. Petersburg says that although the students remain quies cent, thft officers are disturbed by the at titude of the working people ar.d isola ted troubles are considered unavoida ble May 1. The working people are at tempting to introduce labor day observ ances. Practically the whole of the op eratives of the St. Petersburg Steel com pany, an immense concern which among other things, manufactures ordnance recently demanded a half holiday anl full pay. When the demands were re fused they broke into the manager's of fice, forced the company's officials to flee for their lives, tore their fur coats into F-hreds and burned valuable books an 1 papers. Police and mounted gendarmes chased and routed the rioters. "Don't Worry" Cablegram. Washington, April 18. Commissar General Weston has received a cable gram fiom Colonel Woodruff, chief com missary at Manila, in which he sas: "Do not permit scandalous reports to worry you. Affairs subsistence dpnrt mnt of the army administered honestly and to satisfaction of officers and troops." of the Asiatic Squadron, has been ordered by the Navy Department to proceed Melbourne, Australia, to represent us m the ceremonies celebrating the opening of 6lh next- The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall are also scheduled to arrive on that STEEL MARKET DULL. Chiefly Because the Demand is Large ly Restricted. New York, April IS. The Iron Age today says: By many in the iron trade the an nouncement of the low prices for ore is now interpreted as proof of the fate that Standard Oil principles are to guide tl;3 management of the United States Steel corporation. As one of the brightest sale managers of one constituent concern puts it, those principles may be summarized briefly: Better service, improved quality and lower prices. This, so far as the last named are con cerned, would be breaking with the tra ditions of quite a number of leaders in the iron industry, who have believed in making the best of the opportunity of the moment. A flurry has been created by the threat of the Amalgamated associa tion to force a fight on the recognition of the union in the sheet mills. It is pretty certain, however, that the meeting will be adjusted. The markets continue strong, but, as is natural, have quieted dtown somewhat in pig iron after the long period of activity, iteports of large sales of Bessemer pig in the central west are untrue, but, on the other hand, there does not appear ajiy foundation for the reports of weaJcness as the result of the lowering of the price of lake ores. The steel market is rather dull, chiefly because, while the demajid is re stricted, the supply is even narrower and premiums are still paid for prompt de livery. In ail branches of the finished trade the reports of heavy deliveries con tinue and there is evidence that a good de-a.1 of new woi'K is being taken. The steel rail makers report somewhat of a revival in orders. In the east about 65.IXJ0 tons were p!aced. while a western esti mate is fully luo.000 tons for the whole country. In other directions, too, there Is a somewhat larger demand from the rail roads. Some good blocks of railroad bridge work have been recently taken, in cluding orders for the Mexican Central, for the New York, Ontario & Western, the. Nickleplate and for the Pennsylvania railroad. The American Bridge company has also taken an order for 5,000 tons of bridge work for Cuba. The activity in building 1-arge structures in the leading cities and in manufacturing buildings con tinues unabated and in the aggregate the tonnage is very large. From Chicago comes the report of eome very large sales of bars to the manufac turers of agricultural implements for for ward delivery, the quantity involved be, ing 5..."J tons. The smaller concerns are expected to follow and to swell the total. As an Indication of the condition of affairs in the plate trade, the fact is noted that the Chicago mills are delivering along the Atlantic coast and in New Kngland. RAILROAD ASSESSORS Meet to Hear Complaints From Those Feeling Aggrieved. The state board of railroad assessors began its session today to make up the assessments and hear representatives of the several railroads who are interested in having their assessments reduced. It's reduce, of course, for no one ever comes before the board to have an as sessment raised. Kansas City, Kan., has a committee here objecting to discrimination in for mer assessments on railroad property in that city. Deputy County Clerk Joe Hoffman, Dr. L. D. Mabie, county com missioner, and Assessor Throop are the committee seeking a readjustment . of the assessments. According to the figures of the officers of the Rock Island, it occupies 55 acres in Kansas City, Kan. This land is valued at $1,000 an acre. The shops and ten acres of ground are said to be well worth $12.P10. and the bridge across the Kaw is valued by the officials at $60,000. The bridge figured at 20 per cent of its j actual valuation for assessment pur poses, leaves lis valuation at tii.wu. Then there are 16 miles of side tracks, valued for assessment purposes at $2,000 a mile, or $32,000. The same kind cf side tracks, it is alleged, is assessed at J6.000 a mile for the Kansas City Belt Line. This makes $111,910 worth of assessable property, taking the corporation's own figures as a guide. Last year, and for many years past, the entire assessment on Rock Island property was $61,200. or $50,7oO short of what the committee thinks it should be. Another seemingly inequitable assess ment is in the cases of the Union Pa cific and Missouri Pacific shops. It is estimated that the Union Pacific shops are worth four times more than those of the Missouri Pacific. There is only $32,000 difference in the assessment, the Missouri Pacific being assessed at $25,000 and the Union Pacific at $58,000. And, too, the Missouri Pacific assessment is considered entirely too low. The committee has fortified itself with argumentive data, and expects to get some concessions in the matter of rail road assessments. Sues the Western Union. A suit was brought in the district court this morning by C. W. Hartman against the Western Union Telegraph company fur $1,000 damages. Hartman Brothers are located at Clay Center and in the broom corn business. The claim is that C. W. Hartman on April 1 tele graphed the firm at Clay Center for money with which to close a deal for broom- corn in Woodward, Oklahoma, that he received no answer and sent a second telegram and that the company did not deliver the messages and the damages are asked for on those grounds.
