ALASKA'S WANTS.
They Are Set Forth, by Gov. 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.

WOULD SELL AH ISLAND
Where Kansas Can Raise Pota
toes For Penitentiary.
W. Tt. 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

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

GUARDEDJIFTS.
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.

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

Many a man or woman continues In a

coffee and using Postum Food Coffee.

DEAD NUMBER 28.
Eighteen Victims of Detroit Dis
aster Still Unaccounted For.
Detroit, Nov. 27. 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

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.

BY WATER'S PLEA.
Asks Grace Cathedral People to Treat
New Dean Hospitably.
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."

1 have this feeling for Peruna. Last
winter I was very sick with la grippe,
resulting from a cold and a run-down
condition, that I despaired of getting
well. Medicines did me no good and I
became weaker every day.
Peruna came my friend, built me
up, and brought health and strength
back to me. I have advised dozens of
my friends to use it, and I hear nothing
but words of praise fr it." John De

writes:
"I most heartily recommend Peruna
for all catarrhal disorders of the sys
tem. I suffered for two years from a
cold contracted during the winter which
developed an unpleasant catnrrh
through the system, and also affected
my kidneys. Medicines did me no good,
only seemed to aggravate my troubles,
until I took Peruna.
"Before the first bottle was used I
felt a general improvement, and then
kept taking it for four months, before
I felt that I was entirely cured. I have
now enjoy perfect health for the past
year, and certainly have every reason
to endorse Peruna." J. N. Herbert.

THElli GOOD WORK.
Third Anniversary of the Armory In
dustrial School.
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.
