I '"Their principal idea, of music was noise." said Prof. Tomkins. "They would open their mouths and yell. I wanted to direct them, but in order to do that I had to lead them, so I yelled too. Then I told them that we would play we were creeping up on a band of Indians, and we wanted to sing softly mo we could surprise them. 'We won't o it,' eaid the boys; 'we'll lick 'em anyway." I had to take another line. I told them the Indians were thirty thou sand strong and entrenched in a fort, and we would have to creep up softly and surprise them. Indians never are thirty thousand strong, but I had to adopt heroic measures with those boys, and it worked. They sang much softer and kept making the music softer and softer in order to make the Indians think they were going away instead of getting nearer." Prof. Tomkins told how the boys im proved and developed under the influ ence of music when he had once got bold of them. WILL CLOSE TONIGHT. Sr. Winship's Lecture at the High. School Tonight. The closing session of the association 111 be held in the High school audi torium at 8 o'clock tonight. The main feature will be a lecture on "Boys," by Dr. A. E. Winship, of Boston. Dr. Wln ehip was expected to arrive yesterday morning, but he was delayed and failed to come. His . lecture is expected to be one of the treats of the association. The musical features of tonight's pro gramme will be a solo by Mr. David Bowie and a number by the Bluejay trio, of Ottawa. The session of the State Teachers association for 1901 will be marked down as a record breaker in the history of the organization. The attendance has been enormous, the weather could not have been improved, and practically without exception the teachers have enjoyed the sessions. The association was organized on September 29, 1S63. more than thirty eight years ago. There were only thirty lour teachers present at that meeting. Today the attendance is upwards of two thousand, although not that many have enrolled. Not near all of those who come to the association enroll as members. It is the most representative gathering in the state, coming as its members do from the school houses of town and country all over the state. It la also one of the largest educational associations in the entire country. State Normal Alumni Present Him With Valuable Memento. The alumni of the State Normal school held their annual reunion in the city council chamber following the con cart last night. The hall was crowded for an hour or more, and several hun dred of the former students of the Nor mal passed In and out duriag that time. Ex-President Taylor, who went to an Illinois college last Bummer after being at the head of the Kansas Normal for nineteen years, was present. He came ail the way from Illinois just to attend the reunion, and Prof. M. A. Bailey, who addressed the association yester day, came all the way from New York. President J. N. Wilkinson called Dr. Taylor up in front of the gathering and presented him with a marble bas re lief of "Merry Sunshine," as a token of the regard in which the Normal alumni hold" tner ex-preaidnt.

The movement which has been start ed to build a $15,000 alumni building on the campus of the State Normal at Em poria received an impetus at the re union in a characteristic speech by Prof. J. H. H11L It is expected tkat the alumni will contribute the entire amount, and pledges are being circu lated among them. Prof. Bailey also made a speech, bringing up the memory of the way in which he compelled those present to wrestle with difficult mathematical problems in past years. PROF. PEARSON'S PAPER. He Ably Discussed Literature in the Schools. One of the principal papers read in the college and high school department Thursday afternoon was the one by Prof. P. H. Pearson. His subject was "Principles that Should Govern the In struction in Literature in our Schools and Colleges." The principles which he named were interpretation, appreciation and discipline, and he gave numerous examples illustrating the management of the subject of literature in the class room, and also a complete outline for intensive study. Prof. J. A. Ferrell, of Sedan, discussed the dividing line between arithmetic and algebra. He believed in introducing algebraic processes into the early stages of arithmetical instruction. Prof. S. M. Nees, principal of the high school at Independence, spoke on "The County High School as a Factor in Education." Prof. Nees has been in high school work for the past seventeen years, and he gave some valuable ex periences along that line. He showed that the county high school is the real connecting link between the common schools and the university. All of the papers were freely dis cussed. Nelson Gives a Review. The educational review of the past year presented by Superintendent Prank Nelson was closely listened to by the teachers, because of its practical connection with their work. Superin tendent Nelson told particularly of the legislation passed by the last legisla ture affecting the public school system. He said that the consolidation of coun try school districts was the most im portant step of the year, and he pointed out that it provided a way for the ele mentary training of every child in the state so that it could be fitted for the county high school and go from there directly into the university, without having to go away from home for pre liminary training. He also emphasized the value of the traveling libraries in an educational way and manual train ing schools. He said manual training and industrial education are sure to come in the public school system of Kansas, and told what has recently been done by the Topeka board of edu cation in that line. MUSK OX COMING. Only One In Captivity to Be Christened In Topeka. The State Journal has received the following letter from C. F. Periolat, of Chicago, an Arctic explorer: "Monday morning, December 30, at 4:40 a, m., there will be on board the train coming from San Francisco, pass ing through your city the only musk ox that ever has been brought from the Arctic regions alive. This was brought down on the whaler Beluga, by Capt. H. H. Bodfish, whose home is In Vineyard Haven, Mass. "It is a very interesting animal and it is claimed that it would not live in this latitude, but by what information we have received from Col. C. J. Jones 0 your city and other naturalists, I am satisfied that the animal will live. "We kept it in San Francisco for a month to give it a rest before shipping it here. It will finally go to the United States National Zoo at Washington. I have written Colonel C. J. Jones today ask ing him if he would be so kind as to christening the animal Jennie Jones on arrival at Topeka which I think he will do. If you are interested in this mat ter you better see Col. Jones and he can give you a further history of the animal for he has been among them in the Arctic." "Buffalo" Jones has consented to christen the animal and the ceremony will take place at the Santa Fe depot. HE WANTED BLOOD An Italian Chases a Fellow Countryman 4,000 Miles The Kace Started at South Mc Alister, 1. T. WAS ON HIS BOND. The Hunted Man Took Adran tage of H is Liberty. Both Parties in Hands of the Chicago Police. Chicago, Dec 27. Angelo Scalfla, closely pursued by Antonio Segnio rush ed Into the arms of two detectives in this city and begged for protection. It was the sensational termination of a 4,000-mile man hunt, in which Seaina had been followed for three months and had visited the principal cities of the eastern states. Both men were taken to the Harrison street station where Segnio told a re markable story. Three months ago he said Scalfla was arrested in Indian Ter ritory on the charge of illegally sell ing whisky. After spending a month in jail, he appealed to Segnio, a friend, and business man of South McAlister, and upon assurances by Scalfla that the firm he represented would protect him, Segnio mortgaged all his property and furnished $4,000 bonds to secure the release of his friend. Upon being re leased Scalfla immediately disappeared. The chase began and Scalfia was fol lowed from place to place until finally tiring of the terrible strain he appealed to the Chicago detectives. When taken in Segnio held a revolver in his hand, and notwithstanding the fact If Scalfia is returned to Indian Territory within five days his bond will be saved, Segnio declared his real ob ject in pursuing Scalfia was revenge. "I started to kill him, followed him for thousands of miles and then at the last moment he escapes," he said. "It Is hard; I would not have it so." Scalfia admits his identity and ap pears anxious to be surrendered to the United States authorities to escape a worse fate. WOiENWIN. Will Be Admitted as Delegates to M. . General Conference. New Constitntion Adopted hj the Requisite Majority. Chicago, Deo. 27. Announcement was made here today that the new constitu tion of the Methodist Episcopal church, which was drawn up at the last general conference of that denomination, held at the Auditorium in 1900, and referred to the various conferences throughout the country, has finally been approved by the three-fourths vote required. The vote is as follows: Ayes, 8,196; nays, 2,513. The element which opposed the new organic law of the church because it provided for the admission of women as delegates to the general conference, made war on the new constitution all along the line, but met with defeat. One hundred and twenty annual conferences voted on the question, a total of 10.709 ballots being cast by delegates. The principal changes provided for by the new constitution are: It gives women the right to sit as delegates in the general conference. It gives laymen's electoral meetings authority to vote on constitutional ques tions. It changes the vote necessary In the general conference to amend the con stitution from three-fourths to two thirds. FLOUR FAMINE PERHAPS Northwestern Mills Menaced by Short Wheat Supply. In view of the difficulties which To peka flour mills are having to get enough wheat to continue in operation, it is interesting to note that the big mills of the northwest are also in trou ble, and are menaced by an enforced shut-down. The following is a dispatch from Minneapolis: "Serious conditions exist at Minneap olis. They have been brought about by the scarcity of cars and threaten to cause a shut-down in the flour mills there. Millers say that they have a large number of orders on their books and customers are in need of the flour, but they are unable to make the ship ments. . The wheat receipts are also falling off, and the roads are unable even to furnish cars to haul the wheat from the terminal elevators to the mills. A more complicated condition of affairs could scarcely exist. It is understood that - the only roads that can at the present time furnish any relief are the Milwaukee, the Omaha and the Soo Line, and even their equipment Is so limited that it does very little good. "A number of the mills are loading flour in Great Northern and Northern Pacific cars that come in loaded witn wheat, which can under no circum stances be loaded east, but they fill them up with flour and send them out and take chances on getting them transferred into cars that can run east. If they are not transferred they turnish temporary storage for the mills, so It helps part of the situation to .a certain extent." CLARK'S PICTURES. Make-up of the $320,000 Collection Bought by the Senator. New York, Dec. 27. The collection of Dr. Preyer. cappelmeister of Vienna, which Senator Clark, of Montana, has just bought for 1,600.000 francs ($320,000), according to the Paris correspondent of the Herald, Is composed of forty works by old masters and twenty-six modern pictures of the French school of 1S30, which are of considerably greater value than the old masters. This is the opin ion of M. Klelnberger, a deafer in old masters. There are four pictures by Troyon, one of which, an important work, is "La Descent de Montmartre." The old masters include some fine ex amples of Luini. the best "Virgin and Child," a portrait of a woman by Hol bein, a panel of the school of Memling, a landscape with figures attributed to Rembrandt, and three small sketches by Rubens. When the undertaker encounters a young man with a cigarette cough he picks out a coffin. HILL DRIVEN OUT. (Continued from First Page.) H. L. McNeill, professor of Latin at Washburn college, was present and at the request of Evangelist Hill spoke for a short time. Prof. McNeill had evi dently heard of the alleged practices of Hill and wished to satisfy himself re garding the methods of the minister. What toe said was not favorable to the evidences of Gospel power as inter preted by Hill. "I can't say myself that I feel satisfied as to the best way of presenting the Gospel. If some wonderful experience is necessary I don't know that I am or ever shall be converted. It seems to me that the idea of saying this is mesmerism is crazy. I don't think it is necessary, for any wonderful thing to happen in order that you may get converted. But the works are manifested in life and char acter. I hesitated to believe that the works of the Spirit must be manifest ed by knocking some one over; it is a mistake that the works of the Spirit must be manifested in some wonderful physical upheaval. I am not objecting, but I do not believe it is necessary to get knocked down or to have the roof taken off the house in order to get con verted." In explanation a little later to a reporter Prof. McNeill said: "I was not brought up to believe that this is necessary in religion, but I still think that Mr. and Mrs. Hill are sincere." Mrs. Hill, who in the early part of the evening had spoken for nearly an hour, again sought vindication by her own words. She has a deep resonant voice, is of medium height and makes an ef fective impression upon an audience. "I never have been guilty of preaching that you should be knocked down in order to be saved," she said, her words fairly snapping with emphasis. "There are only a few people who know the real Holy Ghost life today. We can profess for years and years and still never know the power of the living God until we get down and dig as I did with the experiences of Wesley, Red field, Lorenzo Dow, and found there is a power in God if you will only get at Him. The power of God is what; has been working in -your midst; and half hearted sinners will fight it as a rattle snake. You have only tasted the wa ters of life here and I bid you to go on, go on." Hill, himself, also spoke for a short time in answer to what Prof. McNeill had said regarding religious manifestations, but it was insubstances the same as what his wife said, put with less emphasis. Rev. J. F. C Hill, or "Jack," as he fre quently alludes to himself in his meet ings, is a member of the World's Faith Missionary association, an organization having its headquarters at Shenandoah, la. llie society has no tenets at variance with other evangelical churches, but seeks to aid them in their work by sending out evangelists over the country. They are 500 or more of these in different parts of the country. He has appeared a number of times in Topeka, the first being two years ago last fall. Since then he has held street meetings and tabernacle ser vices at short intervals, and previous to the series at Quinton Heights was preach ing in Parkdalei In speaking to a reporter regarding the charges as to his being a hypnotist, he said: "I am no hypnotist ; know nothing about the power;never read any works on that subject and never came in touch with anyone so far as I know who was a hyp notist. I suppose, though, that eacb per son has some mysterious power." Hill is a big man physically. He has massive features, a large head with a heavy hair falling to his shoulders. It is this appendage along with certain passes made by the hands with which it is claimed he brought the religious seek ers under the mysterious sway. He says he was a wicked man before he was con verted, 17 years ago, but since then has held meetings all over the United States. His permanent address is McLouth, Kan. Miss Pearl Cope, one of the young wo men who was brought under the mysteri ous spell Wednesday evening, would say but little regarding her experience. She said, however, that she had no faith in the preaching of Hill and guessed that he must exercise some hypnotic power. She had attended a number of meetings' pre vious to the evening when she was pros trated, and at each she says Hill pleaded with her to seek salvation, directed her to sav the words that he would tell her at the same time asking her to look in his eyes. Wednesday evening, however, he did not talk to her, and after she had gone for ward, when she became rigid and fell backward into the arms of another wo man, she savs he was at some distance from her with his back to her. She says she was unconscious, except that all the time could hear the clock in the room ticking. Mr. and Mrs. Hill say they will not leave Topeka now, but expect to open meetings at some place to be determined later. SHALE MILL HERE One Will Be Erected For Ex perimental Purposes. ' The Fahrig process for extracting gold from Kansas shale Is to be tested by the construction of an experimental mill in Topeka, which will handle one ton of shale a day. The mill will be operated under the direction of Dr. Fahrig's son, Ernest Fahrig, jr., who will come here from Philadelphia with in a few weeks. Ernest Fahrig, jr., is an electrical engineer. Dr. Fahrig came to Topeka yesterday to consult with Mr. Lantry, Mr. Cush ing, Mr. Holliday, Mr. Saum of Hays City, and others, and to present to them an extensive written report of his work and its results. In talking with a reporter for the State Journal, Dr. Fahrig said: "I do not believe In secret processes for extracting minerals. Whenver a process is secret, it is suspicious. In regard to the Gage process, which is a secret, I can say that I would be will ing to put down $100 that there is noth ing in it new to chemistry. When I was in Topeka before, I was careful to say nothing derogatory to Mr. Gage or his process. Now that the Gage process has practically fallen flat, I will say nothing derogatory. I aro heartily sorry that Mr. Gage's procejedid not work I don't care how he gets honest results, provided he gets them. The failure of the Gage process cast discredit Upon all the work of us who are investigating the shales. It would have been infinite ly better for us if Mr. Gage had suc ceeded. "The electrical process which I have invented I believe will be a success. I have the utmost confidence that there is gold in Kansas shale. The only question is how to get it out. I do not advise anyone to invest large sums of money in shale lands or shale mills un til all doubt is removed, I could not conscientiously advise these gentlemen who are employing me to go ahead and construct a 50-ton mill to use my pro cess. I want them to construct a test mill, and they have decided to do so. I know my process will get gold. But I want it to operate wjth more constant results. I want the line to be more even. Heretofore it has been too much up and down. Sometimes we got better results than others. . We must find out why that is. I want the line of results to be as high as possible, but It must be more nearly level, before I will ad vise the erection of a large mill. "I will not be in Topeka when this experimental mill is operated. Ey son will represent me, and he will be under the direction of Mr. Saum and the oth er gentlemen who are interested. "I am not a rich man, but I have enough so that I could erect a 50-ton mill myself if I felt sufficient confidence in my process. I will not do It, because I think it safer to have the experi mental mill first. "My process is to be protected by a patent. It will be made public as soon as the patents are perfected. I have nothing to conceal." Dr. Fahrig's report is a very expen sive document, giving in detail the his tory of his experiments and the results which he obtained. It will first be made public by Prof. J. T. Lovewell, of this city, at the meeting of the Kansas Academy of Science to be held at Iola next week. Prof. Lovewell will at that time read such portions of the report as are of interest to the public, in con nection with a paper which he will pre sent to the meeting on the subject of "Gold In Kansas Shale." Dr. Fahrig has been at JopHn, Ga lena, and other Missouri and Kansas towns, inspecting zinc mines for east ern investors. He will leave for Phil adelphia tomorrow. 40Ti(lLLED In a Battle That Lasted More Than Six Hours. Colon, Colombia, Dec. 27. News was received today that General Marian, the Colombian revolutionary leader, at tacked Honda, on the Magdalena river, December 9, with 1,200 men. The gar rison, consisting of 430 men, fought from 6 a. m. until 12:30 p. m. At 8 a. m. the garrison received reinforcements num being 200 men. The battle started on the outskirts of the city, and ended at Caracoll, nine miles from Honda. Bayo nets and madhetes were used. The gov ernment forces were victorious. -Four hundred men were killed during the battle. OPENING OF LANDS. Bill by Cnrtis to Lighten Indian Office Work. Washington, Dec. 27. Congressman Curtis, of Kansas, one of the most ac tive members of the house committee on Indian affairs, will present a bill as soon as congress reassembles that is de signed to lighten the work of the Indian office and to solve a problem that is growing more complicated each year. The bill will provide that the adult heirs of any deceased Indian to whom lands had been allotted may sell the land. Under the existing laws the lands are held in trust and the leasing proceeds divided each year among the heirs. The complications arising under this system have led Mr. Hitchcock, secre tary of the interior, to recommend to congress the passage of a law author izing the sale of the lands of this char acter belonging to the Ponca, Pawnee, Otoe and Tonkawa Indians in Oklaho ma. Mr. Curtis will offer a bill making the authority general, affecting the lands of deceased allottees wherever sit- The passage of the bill recommended by Mr. Hitchcock would at once open up over 81,000 acres of fine farming land In Oklahoma to settlement, and would greatly simplify the work of the Indian bureau in caring for these heirs. Under the proposed plan the land would be sold and the money deposited with the gov ernment for the benefit of the heirs of the deceased allottees. The adoption of the bill which Mr. Curtis will introduce would open many thousands of acres of land to settlement or for sale to set tlers. Following Is a copy of the bill which Mr. Hitchcock has recommended for passage: "That the adult heirs of any deceased Ponca, Pawnee, Otoe or Tonkawa In dian, to whom a trust patent was is sued for lands cllotted him in Oklaho ma, may sell and convey the lands In herited from such decedent, and if there be both adult and minor heirs of such inherited lands, then such minors may join in a sale thereof by a guardian duly appointed by the proper court, upon an order of such court made upon petition filed by such guardian, all conveyances made under this act to be subject to the approval of the secretary of the inte rior, under such rules and regulations as he may prescribe." The bill to be offered by Mr. Curtis makes the proposition general, instead of confining it to the four tribes named in Mr. Hitchcock's bill. MAY BE ROCK ISLAND. New Company Chartered Which Has That Flavor: Austin, Tex., Dec 27. The charter of the Oklahoma City Sc Texas Railroad company has Just been filed in the sec retary of state's office. It has a capital stock of $500,000 and is formed for the purpose of building and operating a railroad from a point on Red river, in Hardeman county, where a connection is made with the Oklahoma & Western, south to Quanah and a branch line from a point one and a half miles from Its northern terminus to the town of Acme, Tex. The general office of the company will be located at Quanah. It is announced that this road is to be built In the immediate future. It is rumored in railroad circles in To peka that the Rock Islaid Is behind the organization of this company and that it is the first of a number of roads to be built in Texas, Oklahoma and the Indian Territory as extensions to the already existing lines. NATIONAL AID OUT. Insurance Commissioner Cancels Its Certificate. Pierre, S. D., Dec. 27. Insurance Com missioner Shober has issued an order canceling the certificate of authority to do business in South Dakota of the National Aid association, of Topeka, Kas., giving as his reason unsound financial condition. River Is Very Low. The water in the Kansas river Is low er now than it has been for years. Some old settlers say since 1876. The water is so low that the temporary pil ing used in building the Santa Fe rail road bridge and which were cut off far below the water are now sticking up out of the water several inches. Scott Kel sey said this morning that the river was the lowest he had known It to be in 20 years or so. FUSE OR NOT FUSE That is the Question Before the Populist Conference Today. Several members of the Populist state central committee came to Topeka to day to attend the meeting of the com mittee In which the future of the party is to be decided. The question is wheth er or not the proposition of the Demo crat state central committee for the Populists to go into the Democratic primaries shall be accepted, or shall the Populists continue to go it alone. The members of the committee who arrived early are as silent as the ftiave regarding the probable action of the committee, but it is known that Chair man Ridgley, John W. Breidenthal, H. N. Gaines, Mrs. Diggs, and other lead ers are opposed to the Democratic plan. They are in favor of putting up a straight ticket and waiting for the fu ture to turn the political wheel around to them again. Secretary Curran, Andrew Shearer and some of the lesser members are said to be in favor of throwing overboard the Populist organ ization, going Into the Democratic primaries, capturing the Democratic machinery and putting up a tjeket to suit the Populists. Ex-Lieutenant Governor A. M. Har vey does not agree with many other Populists and Democrats that the day of practical fusion Is over. He thinks it can be accomplished regardless of the Republican anti-fusion law. In dis cussing the question today he said: "I believe that -the Democrats and the Populists will each hold a convention next year and that they will be held in the same town at the same time. The Populists a'nd Democrats will agree upon part of the, ticket for each party. The Populists wil lnominate their part of it and the Democrats theirs and then each will fill up the rest of the ticket with the nominations of the other party. I believe that will be agreed upon." "Will the Populists name the gover nor?" was asked. "I hardly think so," "said Major Har vey. "I think the campaign will com mence quite early and that the record of Senator W. A. Harris in comparison with that of Senator J. R. Burton will be one of the leading features of the campaign. I think, too, that there will be a good deal said in favor of Frank Doster for chief Justice. There are five -justices to be elected. There is a feel ing that on account or the excellent rec ord of Judge Doster that a great many Republicans will vote for four Republi cans and give Doster the fifth vote." Sank in Astoria Harbor. Astoria, Ore., Dec. 27. The French bark Henrietta sank in Astoria harbor last night. No lives lost. TODAY'S MARKET REPORT. Chicago, Dec. 27.
