Brady in His Annual Report Washington, Nov. 27. The wants of Alaska as summarized in the recom mendations made in the annual report of Governor Brady, are extension to Alaska of all the federal land laws, survey of the lands for immediate set tlement, a delegate in congress with out territorial organization, a cable be tween Alaska and the United States, representation at the Louisiana Pur chase exposition in 1903, the appoint ment of a commissioner of mining and enactment of a game law for the dis trict. Governor Brady says the agita tion for a territorial form of govern ment has gained very little headway witli those who have any property to tax. In the Cape Nome gold fields the uncertainty in the execution of the laws by the court established there, accord ing to the governor, has led to the re fusal of many persons to develop their claims and to capitalists withholding their investments on account of this fear of insecurity. A CHINESE LOBBYIST. He Comes Ova r to Defeat Re-enactment of Exclusion Law. San Francisco, Nov. 27. The Chron icle says that some excitement has been caused in Chinatown by the ar rival on the steamship Dorice of a spe cial emissary of the Chinese govern ment in the person of Chen Knai Tut Ostensibly Chen Knai Yut's mission to the United States is that of joining the Chinese embassy at Washington, but it is rumored that in reality he is here to bring about if possible the defeat of the proposition to re-enact the Chinese exclusion act, and his arrival is there fore a matter of more than ordinary im port to his fellow countrymen, not only in San Francisco but throughout the pountry. Rock Island May Build a Bridge. St. Joseph. Mo., Nov. 27. There is a Strong probability that the Missouri river et St. Joseph within another year will be spanned by a double tracked steel bridge, owned and operated by the C H. I. & P. R. R. Co. The Rock Island renewed its notice of a few months ago to the Grand Island company to the ef fect that unless the Grand Island took Immediate steps to strengthen and en large the bridge across the Missouri at Bt. Joseph the Rock Island would, within a. certain stated time, abandon its pres ent contract and make other arrange ments. These arrangements contemplate the building of a new bridge at St. Jo seph. It is the desire of the Rock Island officials to run more through trains by way of this point, thereby saving mileage and exsense. Lodge la Against Chinese. Boston, Nov. 27. The Post will print the following telegram from United States Senator Lodge at Washington: "I favor the Chinese exclusion act, and Intend to introduce a bill for its extension." : cream La Good health depends mostly upon the food we eat.

Thompson, formerly deputy war den of the penitentiary, who is acting as agent for the owners of Steiger's island in the Missouri river in the proposition to sell it to the state for coal minine pur poses, believes it can also be made val uable to the state for farming. There are three thousand acres in the island, but a portion of it is subject to overrtow. It is proposed to dyke the is land, using convict labor for the work, so that the whole acreage can be used for agricultural purposes. The dyke would have to be from three to five feet high. Corn was planted on a portion of the island the past year and a big crop was raised. Drouth has no effect on the is land the trouble is to keep the water off. It is claimed that if the island were dyked and planted to potatoes the three thousand acres would raise an immense crop, whereas the state is bow buying potatoes from the north to supply the state institutions. The only object in view for the pur chase heretofore has been to furnish ad ditional land for the penitentiary coal mines, but the directors of the peniten tiary have hesitated about purchasing it for fear it might be in Missouri, and if so the state of Kansas could not acquire title to it. Clad Hamilton, assistant at torney general, has made an investigation of the title, but his report is in the hands of Attorney General Godard and has not yet been made public. Boarders in the Kansas state charitable institutions are eating Wisconsin pota toes largely this winter. The state board of charities and corrections let contracts for SO car loads some time ago and the contractors are now shipping them in from the north in order to fill their con tracts. It is figured that if the peniten tiary farm is increased bv three thousand acres that lie in the middle of the Mis souri river at the foot of the present farm holdings, and potatoes raised on it, the state institutions could be supplied with their Saratoga chips just as they are at present furnished with coal from the genltentiary. The work would all be done y convicts in the penitentiary and a big saving to the state would be effected. 20,000 Acres of Timber to Be Oat Sacramento, Cal., Nov. 27. John Batcher, Jr., has just returned from Minneapolis where he has been fo a few weeks past completing the sale of 20,000 acres of valuable timber land in ElDorado county to a Minneapolis lum ber company. It is said that the timber will be at once placed on the market. In order to do this It will be necessary to build a great mill in the forest of sugar and yellow pine and also to con struct a railroad involving an expendi ture of at least $1,000,000.

Detective on Duty at Wedding of Isabel Peck. Protection From Chicago Hob bers Is Thus Afforded. FORMERLY OF TOPEKA Bride Is a Daughter of George K. Peck. Groom Is George Neal Wilson, a Railroad Man. Miss Isabel Peck, daughter of George R. Peck, formerly of Topeka, was mar ried last night at the New Kngland Congregational church in Chicago, to Mr. George Neal Wilson, formerly of the Kansas City Southern road, now assistant general auditor of the St. Paul road. The ceremony was per formed by Rev. Frank Gunsaulus in the presence of several hundred guests, about fifty of whom were from Kansas. After the church ceremony a reception was held at the Peck residence. Mr. Peck, alarmed by the reign of crime in Chicago, took precautions yes terday to prevent the possible theft of valuable wedding sifts that fill his home at 17 Delaware Place, Presents valued at upward of $5,000 and intended for his daughter were assembled in an upper room of the residence. Fearing that thieves or porch climbers might break into this room during the performance of the wedding ceremony and while the guests and family were absorbed in the marriage details, Mr. Peck last evening appealed for police protection. He telephoned the Chicago avenue police, explaining the circum stances. The detective headquarters were consulted. The authorities decided to grant Mr. Peck's request and a detective was sent immediately to the Delaware Place resi dence. Officer Fitzgerald arrived at the house at S o'clock. Mr. Peck met him at the door and escorted him through the house to an upper room, where the gold and silver gifts from friends and relatives form a tempting invitation to thieves and robbers. Mr. Peck provided the officer with cigars and papers and left him to stand guard. Many times during the evening the officer was startled by servants enter ing the room with additional gifts that had just arrived at the house from friends of the prospective bride and groom. Express wagons drove up to the house every hour with packages to be examined and placed with the increas ing lot of presents, for the safety of which the police have assumed respon sibility. A great many friends of the bride and family called at the Peck residence and the story of the measures taken to thwart any plot to rob the young people of their wedding gifts was related. Mr. Peck said: "I asked the police to send me an offi cer to guard the wedding gifts on the advice of the caterers who will have charge of affairs at the wedding. It has often happened that thieves have gained entrance to a house during the performance of a wedding ceremony and escaped with valuable gifts. "I do not want any such a calamity to happen in this case. Inasmuch as the gifts are here tonight, I thought it would be well to have the officer in the house this evening as well as to morrow night. I think it is nothing unusual, but we can at least feel safe, for the officer has promised he will make short work of any intruders who may attempt to force an entrance to the bouse." Mr. Peck was further urged to ask for police protection because of the many burglaries and robberies reported from all parts of the city and because he had seen suspicious characters in the vicin ity of his residence. QUEER PRACTICE INDEED. Griggs "Smallpox" Case Still Under Quarantine. The "smallpox" case in the family of P. W. Griggs still continues with una bated fury, according to the board of health. The board keeps two guards at the house, one day and one night, and maintains a strict quarantine. A. Griggs, who is charged with hav ing smallpox, has been entirely well for two weeks. He was released from quarantine once two weeks ago, and then put back again, by order of the board of health. Dr. Hamilton, who has been attending the case. Insists that there is nothing the matter with the pa tient, and that he has not had smail pox, nor anything like it. Apparently City Physician Judd was of tie same opinion at first. Mr. Griggs is very indignant at the action of the board of health in forcing him to maintain a quarantine when every indication is that there is no con tagious disease. STILL MORE PAVEMENT. Movement to Save Bast Fourth Street Improved. The latest street proposed for pave ment next summer is East Fourth street, from the Santa Fe railway tracks to the Shunganunga creek, a distance of seven and one-half blocks. The pavement will be of brick, 30 feet wide. Councilman Joseph Griley is backing the movement, and has made plans which will likely develop into a pave ment petition at the next council meet ing. Mr. Griley states that he has talked to most of the property owners affected, and feels confident that he can secure a majority for the pavement. Mr. Griley also had an interview with D. E. Cain, chief clerk of General Man ager Mudge. Mr. Cain says that the Santa Fe will offer no opposition to the pavement so far as the road is affected by it. The Santa Fe owns two blocks on the south side of Fourth east of the depot. Death of CoL Whigham. Chicago, Nov. 27. Col. Henry Whig ham of Raton, N. M., a member of the staff of Governor Otero, Is dead of heart disease here. Col. Whigham was inter ested in the Peter Maxwell mining claims in New Mexico and in iron and copper mines In Michigan.

There is now about $50,000 in the gen eral revenue fund in the state treas ury. R. T. Atwood, the commercial agent of the Rock Island at St. Joe, was here Tuesday. "Cider" Smith's prediction that a storm period would begin last night is true so far. Reports from various parts of the state indicate that the water supply is running short. The Sylvan Grove Elevator and Mill company has been chartered with a capital of $15,000. A. G. Stacey is publishing the Buffalo Arkansas Courier, as well as the Yell ville Republican. F. A. Beach has been appointed first lieutenant and adjutant of the artillery, section, K. N. G. The Topeka Business College football team will go to Eskridge to play on Thanksgiving day. There are six applications for hired girls now on file with the Topeka Free Employment agency. The Abilene and Lincoln lodges of the National Aid association have voted to go into the Pyramids. The government weather bureau will not close up shop tomorrow but will look after the elements. Vaccine virus can be found only at a few drug stores. For some reason most druggists do not keep it. Chestnuts are said to be scarce this year. None of the big fat ones so milch sought for are on the market. Kansas City parties are arranging to put in bowling alleys on Kansas avenue between Eighth and Ninth streets. The Kansas Medics will go to Atchi son in the morning for the football game with the Athletic association. A bowling league between Topeka, Kansas City, Atchison, Lawrence, St. Joe and Savanna is being talked of. The three Parkdale churches will hold union services in the Parkdale Chris tian church on Thanksgiving morning. The day before Thanksgiving always brings the announcement that "tomor row there will be T. & J. at so and so's." The Santa Fe has contracted for 600, 000 barrels of petroleum from the Cali fornia fields, to be used on its engines. A lot of people who don't care much for football will go to the game tomor row Just to see Governor Stanley kick off. John Cordon was fined J25 in the fed earl court here yesterday . Cor stealing a letter from a mail car at Kansas City. Probably the largest crowd that ever attended a football game in Topeka will witness the Ottawa-Washburn game tomorrow. The state house elevator is scheduled to run again Monday. It will be a great relief to people who have to go to the upper floors. The state house employes got paid off four days ahead of time this month so they would have plenty of money to bet on the football games tomorrow. "Cider" Smith prophesies bad weather on Thanksgiving. Everybody hopes that "Cider" will be wrong for once, but the chances are in his favor. Governor Stanley has appointed J. C. Murphy to be justice of the peace of Walnut township, Reno county, to suc ceed Charles Christman, who resigned. The Kansas commission for the St. Louis world's fair has been offered a lot of logs cut off of the fair grounds site with which to erect a Kansas building. There is a man in Topeka who was blown up by a boiler a good many years ago and had fifteen bones broken, and he might survive another blowing up if he had to. T. S. Cafferty, of 613 Monroe street, has received a letter from his son who is a bugler in the army of the Philip pines which describes vividly some of his experiences. Bishop Millspaugh has returned from southern Kansas where he has been for two weeks. He will be at the Cathedral Thanksgiving and at the installation of the new dean on Sunday. Governor Stanley's proclamation for Thanksgiving did not say anything about people kicking off after they had attended divine worship. The governor may kick off by telephone. Topeka is becoming quite metropol itan. There is talk of a hotel having a Turkish bath attachment, and not one COFFEE IMPORTER Tells Some Plain Fasts! One' of the heaviest Importers of coffee In America, and who requests that his name be kept from the public" in con nection with the following subject be cause of the effect it would have on his business, says: "I have used coffee for over thirty-five years, but about a year ago was compelled to discontinue its use on account of its effect on my health. Since that time I have used nothing in its place but Postum Cereal Food Cof fee and properly prepared. It is simply delicious with cream and sugar. In connection with this I have also used Grape-Nuts Breakfast Food. While in Florida this winter I carried a pack age with me all the time, so if I was unable to get what I wanted for break fast I could rely on my own supply. Any one who could have known of my condition a year ago, and the very great improvement now, would have no change from the old fashioned diet to the present." This man is one of the best known coffee experts in the world, and his tes timony regarding the flavor of Postum Cereal Food Coffee is noteworthy. Now and then a person gets Postum Food Coffee served under boiled and consequently almost tasteless. A chemi cal change takes place In Postum after it has been actively boiled for 12 or 15 minutes;this change brings out the food value and the delicious taste. It does not answer to simply leave It on the stove 15 minutes, it must stand on the stove until boiling commences, then be allowed to bubble 15 minutes. A piece of butter twice the size of a pea should be put in the pot to keep it from boiling over. Many a man or woman continues In a half sick state from month to month, not knowing that the drug in the coffee they use is the cause: try leaving off coffee and using Postum Food Coffee. That change has 'worked salvation for many, skeptical sick ones. of the bath cabinet variety, either, but the real marble slab kind. Rev. A. M. L. Heranius, pastor of the Swedish Lutheran church, returned to day from Waterville, where he was called Monday to attend the funeral of the wife of Rev. Mr. Udden. At the meeting of the Fortnightly club Tuesday night in Judge Garver's office, J. D. McFarland read a paper on the subject, "Does a College Education Unfit a Man for Success in Business?" The National Educational association next year, in which many Kansas teachers are interested, will be held at Minneapolis, Minn. The executive com mittee has just decided upon the place. W. R. Walker, foreman of the anti septic barber shop, has resigned that position to become special agent for the Mutual Life Insurance company. His territory will embrace all of Kan- James Butler, secretary of the Farm ers' Co-operative Grain and Live Stock association, was in Kansas City last night, and a Kansas City paper says he "wore a smile as broad as the Mis sissippi in a spring flood." The members of company A are talk ing of moving their drilling quarters from the Armory to Metropolitan hall. The hall would be a better place for dances. The Topeka company may soon rival the "Ransome guards" if the move is made. The first of a series of "social even ings" will be given tonight at the new Tennesseetown free library by the peo ple of Central church. The evening will be spent in games and music, and the colored people in that part of town are invited to attend. Orrin T. Welch is the only former mayor of Topeka whose picture Mayor Hughes has been unable to obtain. Mr. Welch lives in New York. The pictures of all the dead mayors have been ob tained, but apparently Mr. Welch is slower than the dead ones. J. K. Bailey, of Ottawa, has appealed a suit to the supreme court to compel H. H. Hudelson, of Paoli, Ind., to carry out an alleged contract to sell him a farm in Franklin county for $1,800. The suit was dismissed from the Franklin county district court on a demurrer. W. F. Rightmire, who was the first Populist candidate for chief justice, ia now practicing law at Cottonwood Falls. Proximity to the Cottonwood has developed him into an expert fish erman, and he writes a Topeka friend that he recently caught eight bass in one sitting. One of them was 17 inches long and weighed 4 pounds, which is a pretty big bass. Six TJte Indians passed through To peka Tuesday evening on their way to Washington, D. G, where they are to appear before the interior department to close a deal for the lease of several thousand acres of lands in Utah. They were in charge of H. P. Myton, agent.

When day broke to day a great force of men was still delving in the ruins of the Penberthy Injector company's plant, which was wrecked yesterday by a boiler explo sion, causing the loss of 28 lives. By morning the laborers had searched through the greater portion of the de bris and were rapidly going through that part which had not been inspected. During the early morning, two of the Injured at Emergency hospital, Igna tius Brock and William Eggers, a boy. died, making the total number of deaths 28. Officers of the company after a care ful systematic search at 9 o'clock this morning announced that 18 of their men are still unaccounted for. Two unidentified bodies at the morgue ac count for two of the missing and it ; is confidently believed that a majority of the others will be located during the day." At the hospitals, it was reported that the injured were making excellent progress. Engineer Riley, who was so terribly scalded, slept during the night and to day his recovery was considered almost certain by the surgeons. John Klinow lcz, a molder's helper, who is suffering from a fractured skull at Harper hospi tal, is in the most dangerous condition of any of the injured. His recovery is very doubtful. TRUSTS AND CUBA With Reciprocity Will Receive Chief Attention by the President. Washington, Nov. 27. President Roose velt, it is said, will not incorporate in his message the recommendation of the cab inet officers that usually forms a part of the document, but will have them pub lished as an appendix. This will mater ially shorten the message proper, and as it is now blocked out will not make more than 20.000 words. Reciprocity, the trusts, and Cuba are the subjects that will com mand the largest share of the president's attention. He will urge upon congress the wisdom of negotiating reciprocity treaties upon a protection basis, the publication of the doings of the so-called trusts in order that the evidence will be at hand for prosecuting them in case they violate the law, and the making of a commercial treaty with Cuba. The president will also have considera ble to say about the importance and ne cessity of amending the interstate com merce law so that the government will have power to enforce it, which it appar ently does not have now, but there will be no special legislation recommended for this purpose. Although the president has practically completed his message, it is, of course, subject to possible change at anv time between now and Saturday, when it will go to the printer for the final proofs, and he is receiving all sorts of advice as to what he should and should not say. FINE OLD PAINTINGS. They Tell of Days When E. Bennett Was at His Zenith. Hanging in the rooms of the department of agriculture in the state house are two fine oil paintings. They are immense af fairs and each ia inclosed in a very heavy, massive gilt frame. Both are rural scenes one representing a drove of spirited, blooded horses and the other a half dozen fine cattle in a pasture on a drowsy sum mer afternoon. The pictures were painted originally from life near Topeka and are valued at JJ.200 each. When E. Bennett erected his mansion at Eighth and Buchanan streets several vears ago. the house which is now the Kansas executive mansion, he was mak ing money out of dealing in fine horses. He imported a great many of the finest horses ever brought west of the Missis sippi river. He wished to have paintings of some of them and of some of his fine cattle for his new home. An artist was brought to Topeka and two pictures were painted from life in miniature compan ion pieces. The miniatures were then taken to Paris and painted on a large scale and the large ones were exhibited in the Paris salon for a time. These are the ones which now hang in Secretary Coburn's private office. After they were exhibited in Paris for a time they were brought to Topeka and hung in the Ben nett mansion and remained there until the residence was sold to the state, when Mrs. Bennett requested that they might hang in the department of agriculture temporarily. The central figure in the equine group is an animal for which Mr. Bennett is said to have refused S.000 at one time. -FOR CATARRHAL TROUBLES "Pe-ru-na is One of the Best of Remedies (SAYS GENERAL JOHN B.

Dean J. de Kaven Kaye, the newly appointed dean of Grace Cathedral, will come to Topeka this week and will be installed by Bishop Millspaugh at the morning service at the Cathedral Sun day. In an introductory to his sermon at the Cathedral last Sunday Canon By water exhorted the parishioners to be more charitable in their treatment of the new dean than they have been in the1 cases of the past three men who have filled the position. Next Sunday is Advent Sunday in the calendar of Holy Days of the Episcopal church and Canon Bywater cabled at tention to the fact that the day will have a two fold significance. "It will be the celebration of the advent of the new dean in addition to the usual Ad vent Sunday ceremonies," he said. "I earnestly hope," Canon Bywater continued, "that each and every one of the parishioners will throw off their in hospitable attitude that has character ized previous experiences and open their doors to the new dean. I hope that you will not be too hasty in form ing opinions or in criticising any action of the new dean. "I know that some of our parishioners are very caustic in their sarcastic re marks, and I hope they will refrain from uttering any comment until after becoming well acquainted with our new dean, and then I feel sure there will be no cause for comment, except favor able comment. We are all human and are apt to fall short in many things. I hope you will not lose sight of that fact always." Aator Didn't Buy It. London, Nov. 27.

The Armory Industrial school will hold its meeting this week on Friday, at 2 p. m. Mr. and Mrs. L. P. Broad will.visit the children, and Mrs. Broad will tell them some Indian stories and sing some Indian songs. Mrs. John D. Knox will treat the children with apples and lunch will be served. This Thanksgiving is the third anni versary of the school, which was organ ized in November, 1S98, with a Thanks giving fund of $14, donated by the Min isterial union. The school has held li0 sessions in the three years, having omitted but four meetings. The pres ent enrollment is about 100 girls and 12 boys. It has at present 10 regular and several supply teachers. It owns an organ, a gasoline stove and a sewing machine. It is indebted to the Flam beau club for the free use of its pleas ant rooms. The uncomplaining kind ness of Mrs. Walton, the Janitress, brought forth the appreciation of the girls in a gift shower recently. It was long a puzzling question as to what work to provide the boys who wished to come, and on several days they were given sewing with the girls, but now a good teacher has been se cured and they are engaged in making themselves "Kansas histories," with pink cambric, paste and newspaper pic tures and clippings. The girls have made over 900 gar ments this year, besides piecing nine or ten quilts for the school, at their homes. The materia! for this work is donated by the friends, and the children are all taught to earn the garments they make. They have also done a good deal of crocheting and fancy work. The first meeting in each month is at tended by the children's mothers, and Mrs. Li da H. Hardy has organized the girls into a housekeepers' club, known as the Grace Darling club, which occu pies the third meeting in each month. No church or. club ever worked with greater precision and harmony than has our school in the past year; nor did ever any association accomplish more with limited means. Our present regular teachers are: Mrs. T. E. Sheard. Mrs. Glaseo, Mrs. Dawson, Miss Etta Fox, Miss Grace Griffith, Mrs. Morse, Mrs. Carrington, Mrs. Nesbit, Mrs. Barnett. and MRS. THORPE.
