TOPEKA STATE JOTJIINAI SATURDAY EVENING. JUNE 22, 1901.
5 I1E17 HEATREGORD Mercury Reached 93 at' Six O'clock Friday Evening. Iluniditr Added to the General Oppressiveness. RELIEVED BY THE RAIX Local Situation Kelieved hy Rain and Thunder Storm. Was Much Warmer in Other Parts of the Country. The hot weather continues. Today's temperature at 2 o'clock was 94. The rainfall last evening amounted to but 14 hundredths of an inch but it cooled things of? and made it possible to find a breathing spell. Today's tern peratur"? have been as follows: 7 o'clock i? o'cloi k 9 o'clock "s 10 o'clock 82 11 o'clock 12 o'clock s'-' 1 o'clock &3 2 o'clock "Calm weather in June Bets corn In tune." Page 97 U. S. weather proverbs. Perhaps Friday set corn in tune but It Bent the unfortunate people who do not own an ice box big enough to get into, to the soda fountains, the cellars, the back porches, lose wrappers, sus penderless wardrobes and root beer, for it was hot, red hot and still kept get ting hotter. The man who sat on an ice chest and drank mint soda was a seem ing millionaire but the man who had to iill !;n stay at the store and work felt like a corpse. The thermometer worked overtime. Instead of starting in at 8 o'clock and leaving- off work after the usual eight tiours !t kept right on overtime and piled up a score that kept the self reg istering thermometers on the jump. The minimum temperature Friday was 71. Observer Jennings wrote that in large figures with a blue pencil. Then he went about his duties and about 4 o'clock he climbed to the roof of the Columbian building and looked at the thermometer. The mercury was up to S7 and smiling. He rubbed off the little glass tube, blew the dust from the spring which works the recording de vice and he went below to cool off while the mercury and the sun fought anoth er round. W hen the bell tapped at 5 o'clock for the close of that round. Referee Jen rings climbed over the ropes and found the principals in their respective cor ners badly fatigued after a tierce round. The referee announced that at the end of the last round he would be willing to fight all comers who asked if it was "hot enough for him." He went below and chalked up on the bulletin board End sat down by a window to cool off "When the bell tapped at 6 o'clock he shed his coat, grabbed an umbrella, loosened his collar and climbed to the roof again.. He clambered up the eom panionway to the little box where the thermometer is and found that the sun was so hot the purple ink was on the run and that just for a minute Old Sol had cornered the market and sent the mercury up to 93 but that it dropped . back to 92. Then he went below and wrote in red ink as large as the figures on a boxcar the startling figures 93. At 7 o'clock the sun had announced that it was going to close up for the night. Observer Jennings turned to page 111 of the code book of the weather bureau to see what to do for an overheated thermometer. "If the mercury should by chance rise higher than the law al lows, it will be the solemn duty of each and every observer to put the ther mometers on ice and administer to them as Is done for sunstroke, viz place the thermometer on ice Jen nings swiped a cake of ice from th water cooler and did what he could tar the suffering mercury but immediately this morning the thermometer started In again on another spree. At 9 o'clock last night the tension was relieved by a local rain and thunder storm. "Why was it so hot yesterday'" a'ked a loafer at the weather office of ob """fen"lns thi corning while that worthy official was trying to work a fan with one hand and make up a re port with the other and keep the coil spring on the automatic machines from running down. "uu '" Cause it wasn't cooler," was the re Ply. "Why wasn't it cooler?" asked the Persistent questioner. " 'Cause it was hot." "Well. I suppose so but " "Well, you see it was like this." said the observer as he mve the coil spring a Waterbury twist. "The hottest ,t?tnT cilme "Mtpr(3ay at an unusual time of the day. The hottest was six o clock, about the time we should look for cooler weather " loaTer" locked" diJ -vour the "f.d e"d , growled the ob server as he tried to fan some wind 4ewn hjs back. "At seven o'clock it W7x A ft .1 was still SO and the air was heavy with moisture making it sticky. You see if it had been cooier It wouldn't have been so hot and if it had been dryer it would not have been so wet, and if it hadn't been so wet we wouldn't have felt it so much. The humidity, which means the amount of moisture in the air, was about three-fourths per cent., while at normal it should be dry." "Why did- it get so hot at 6 o'clock?" "I suppose that was the time to make us feel it," replied Jennings, and he poured some water on the coil spring to keep it. from running hot. "The sun had been obscured most of the day or It would have been hotter." "Why was there so much lightening?" "Because it was playing. Why don't you ask why the thunder made such a racket?" asked the much worried man as he tried to keen the ink from run ning out of his fountain pen in a shower bath. "You see the conditions follow ing such a day as yesterday induce lightening. This is the time of the year when -lows' and 'highs' move sluggish ly. When a 'low' moves sluggishly it gives it time to gather moisture and makes It oppressive. There is a "low' north of us and one south and we will probably feel the effects of a 'low' from Arizona, then it will be hot." The forecast sent out today is "gen erally fair tonight and Sunday. Warmer west portion tonight." While it was hot here yesterday it was hotter in some places and cooler in others, which is one of the startling fact3 revealed by the weather bureau. At Kl Paso the mer cury climbed to 102, at Abilene, Texas, to 100 and at Shreveport to 100 while Chicago was pleasant with the highest temperature tS and San Francisco was the hottest when the mercury reached LITTLE RAIN ELSEWHERE Reports received at the Santa Fe tele graph office Indicate that the storm which struck Topeka last night was lar gely of local character. Emporia re ports the weather to be cloudy and warm, with, local showers on the Mc pherson branch and Strong City line, but no rain at all on the main line west from Emporia to Newton. At Chanute the weather is clear and warm, and no rain fell last night. Purcell, I. T., re ports "clear and hot," with no rain. "BUGLEll WESTON" GITEN. Play by Topeka 15-Year-Old Boy at the Grand. "Bugler Weston." a four-act war drama, written by a Topeka 15-year-old amateur and produced by a cast of local amateurs was given its initial per formance at the Grand opera house last night. Barring a few unlooked for hitches the I'lay was creditably acted, when it is taken into consideration that no member of the cast was over eighteen years of age. The leading part, that of "Harry Weston," a bugler in the U. S. army during the civil war. is taken by the author of the play, Edward Shumway. Bugler Weston is the victim of all the misfortune which can be showered upon him by a wily and scheming uncle who hopes by his intriguing to displace his nephew In the army and secure the place for his son. Following an engagement during which a daring confederate officer is taken, Bugler Weston is placed on guard over the prisoner. His uncle learning of that fact hires a desperado to sandbag the unsuspecting officer and allow the prisoner to escape. The piece carries the hero through a great many experiences before bringing him to trial. At the court-martial an unknown witness to the transaction comes for ward. Bugler Weston's honor is vindi cated, and the uncle falls Into dis grace. "Bugler Weston" is not a strong piece. In fact there are several weak places in it: several inconsistencies which may be easily remedied. With a little effort the play could be made a strong one. It is a creditable piece, however, for a 15-year-old author. Harry Parks in the part of the son of Harry Weston's uncle and Irwin Snat tinger. in the part of "Hans Bringle," a half witted Dutchman, who creates the comedy in the play were good. Helen Bond as "Rose Dawson," Bugler Weston's sweetheart, and Gertrude Palmer as Bugler Weston's mother were liked. The specialties by Dorothy and Pauline Marshall and Libby Hill, Mar vin Xye. Edward Shumway and Irwin Snattinger each brought out applause. The piece was repeated this afternoon. STANLEY IS VEXED. Refuses to ApproTe Reply to Italy's Note. Kansas' international tilt -with Italy pales into insignificance beside the in ternal dissension in the state house at present over the incident itself. Gov ernor Stanley and Attorney General Godard have fallen out over the diplo matic note prepared to be sent in re ply to the representations of Consul Raswadowskl. Governor Stanley went to Leaven worth the day that Count Kaswadow ski's note was received, to take a look at the state binding twine plant with other state officers. Before going he turned the den and for Indemnity over to Attorney General Godard for an opinion on the matter from the head of the legal department of the state. Godard framed a diplomatic answer to the count's note. The newspaper men got hold of it. and sent out ha.lf roiumn dispatches telling how Kan sas had just finished twisting the lion's tail over Kin:;' Edward's blunder, and was now ready for a bout with the ver micelli statesmen and diplomats. It was supposed that Governor Stan ley would approve the diplomatic note. This was a fatal mistake. Stanley re fuses to have any assistant governo business about the chief executive's office. He won't sign the note. He returned from Wichita this morn ing, with anything but love in his heart for the correspondents and Attorney General Godard. He blamed Godard for giving out let ters as his that he had never seen. When asked by a reporter this morn ing how the negotiations with Italy wore coming along the governor said: "There are none yet." "How about the letter to Count Ras wadowski?" "I have not replied to -the communi cation. Some of these newspaper men go off at half-coc k and send letters for a fellow that he has never seen. "I'll answer my own letters." he an nounced, as he was going through the pile of correspondence on his desk. "I shall reply to the consul when I get down to his letter somewhere near the bottom of the heap." Didn't Marry For Money.

White, of Loudon, England. Humored That lie Wants to Control Wellhouse Output. HAS LITTLE TO SAY. Greatly Worried by American Newspaper Reporters. Talks of Progress Made in ' Apple Raising. William N. .White, London's noted fruit expert, the man who introduced California fruit in England, and for the past 32 years the largest auctioneer of fruit In the British metropolisspent a few hours in Topeka today discuss ing the apple situation with Fred .Well house, of 1025 Topeka avenue, .the apple king of Kansas. ' His visit here was ostensibly to learn Mr. Wellhouse's opinion of the best grades of Kansas apples for packing and storage purposes. He, however, refused to say whether he was success ful in gaining control of the output of Mr. Wellhouse's orchards, which cover hundreds of acres. , While it 13 given out that Mr. White's trip across this continent is only a sight-seeing tour, it is in reality to come in closer touch with the basis of supply for the fruit shipments to Eng land, which are Increasing jwith each suceeding year. Last year about 3.000,000 bushels of apples were exported from this coun try to England. The Armour Packing company last year dipped into the apple business. Carloads of the product were shipped to the cold storage plants in Kansas City and Chicago in refriger ator cars, from which points they were distributed. The venture proved suc cessful, and this year the same com pany is going deeper into the Industry. The yield of apples in the United State3 is too large and scattered for any one concern to absolutely control, or get a "corner" on it. The Armours it is claimed are behind the project for the exportation of al most the entire western crop of apples, and Mr. White comes west after a con ference with representatives of the Armour company at Chicago. From here he will return to Kansas City, where after further conferences with representatives of the apple business and the cold storage concern he will continue his Journey to the Pacific coast, where he will look over the fruit situation In California and Oregon. Mr. White explained that the demand for American apples was steadily In creasing in London, and that he In tended to handle as much of this trade as possible. He refused however, to discuss what part in the big apple scheme the Armour company would take. Mr. White is distinctively English, He is large, weighing in the neighbor hood of 250 pounds, and walks with a small, mincing step, swinging his arms slightlv. He carried a neatly wrapped umbrella in his left hand. He wears sideburns, in which may be found the faintest trace of red. "Hi shall nevah weglstah as coming from Lunnon again." said Mr. White as he took a seat on Mr. Wellhouse's veranda and began wiping the per spiration from his face with a large handkerchief, after being introduced to a State Journal reporter. "Why." he continued, "as soon as Hi wegistered from England. Hi was surrounded by a mob of about a dozen reporters, donch yer know. Hit's about the worst Hi evah went against." After delivering himself of a tirade against the persistent American news paper reporter, he settled down to the more serious business which was the occasion of hi3 visit to Mr. Wellhouso. "The Armour company will eb a great factor in the apple Industry of this country this year." said Mr. White. "If everything goes right it will probably continue to be a powerful factor. Last year the company tried purchasing and storing apples, and it was found that by reason of the big cold storage plants and the refrigerator cars the business was profitable. The bulk of the applet used in England came from this ocun try. and what is true of England Is true of the countries of the continent." Mr. White says there Is big money to be made in fruit raising In the wheat sections of the United States if the farmers will only consent to give up c portion of their wheat lands for or chards. "An experience of years in handling all kinds of fruit." said he, -"has con vinced me that good wheat soil is bet ter fruit soiL If the wheat farmers would realize this they could make more money raising fruit than wheat. In my opinion the California soil is suitable for any fruit thp.t grows, and I predict that within a few years the p3 ij Linn 7:30 to 9:30. United States will not be importing any of its fruit. If the California peo ple would blend their wine as do the Frenchmen, they would take the wine trade of England and continental Eur ope away from France. The California grape makes by far a better wine than the grape of France." The Kansas apple crop Is no Incon siderable item in the sum total of the output of the United States. "The first apple trees that were planted in Kan sas was away back in '55 and "56." said Mr. Wrellhouse. "And Bince that time we have always iad a crop. There has never been a failure. The crop has been light in some sections, to be sure but we have always had a good crop. This year I estimate that the crop will be over a million bushels. It will be most ly from the central and western portion of the state. The trees which have been bearing large crops in the eastern por tion of the state, which by the way is the best apple section in Kansas, have about played out. New trees have to be planted." There has been In existence for a number of years an organization known as the American Shippers' asso ication, which has endeavored so far as possible to control and fix the prices for the apple crop of the United States. George Richardson, of Leavenworth, has been president of the association for the past three or four years. "Sev eral years," said a prominent apple man today, "as many as 10,000 barrels of Kansas apples have been shipped from Leavenworth alone. "This organization," he continued, "has always been occupied in letting the people know what an immense ap ple crop will be in the market along during the latter part of the summer, but as soon as the wholesale dealers had gained control of the major portion of the crop, its energies are all expend ed in letting the people know what a large mistake was made and how the apple crop did not come up to expecta tions. It has been successful by this method in almost controlling apple prices." WILL PREACH TOMORROW. A Form.r Topeka Boy Will Pill Pulpit Hero. Rev. Luther Bright, son of Rev. John A Bright, will Dreach tomorrow morn ing in the English Lutheran church at the corner of Fifth and Harrison streets. Mr. Bright is a Topeka boy with many friends and school mates here.

Farnsworth is planning to institute a new system of milk inspection in the city of To peka. It will be an extension of the present plan, according to the New Jersey dairy inspection system. "We are not having much trouble with our dairymen now." said Mr. Farnsworth, "but I think that the otU cials of the city ought to be In pos session of detailed Information as to the sanitary condition of the source of the city's milk supply. I frequently, make tests of the milk to cetect adul teration, and am glad to say that my last test showed that every dairy i!i town, with one exception, handles milk which is up to the standard. We gl ad.; the milk on a scale of 3 points, deduct ing one-fifth of a point for (idultt-ra-tions. I found that one dairyman va selling milk that registered 2 4-5.
