The annual general meeting of the members of the Corned io Francaise, Just held, was a rather stormy one. according to a Paris cable to the Herald. The financial report drawn up by M. Silvian contains sharp attacks on the financial management of M. Claretie. which is declared to be deplorable and ruinous for the company. A lively discussion! followed between M. Claretie and several members. M. Cla retie defended himself, mentioning certain expanses for furnishing and particularly thr.nsiderable outlav for the staging of "Patrie," which cost 140.000 francs (J28.00U) for scenery and costumes. This outlay was compensated for by the splendid re ceipts from Sardou's drama, but there were no profits. Ultimately the members consented to sign the new budget of two million francs for the year 1902 on condi tion that M. Claretie formally undertakes not to exceed it without the company's authorization. The members have not, however, approved the accounts for 190L Card of Thanks. We desire to extend our thanks to our friends and neighbors, who so kindly assisted us during the illness and death f our beloved husband and father; also for the beautiful floral offerings. MRS. M. HUHN and FAMILY. LADDEROF FAME. One Plamondons Use Is Not Exactly That Kind. Topeka Hen Engaged to Appear at Midwinter Exposition. THEY ARE IN DEMAND. Hare Signed Contract For Three Years With Uingling. . Now Playing an Engagement in YaudeYille. Arthur S. Kane, commissioner of amusements of the Kansas Midwinter exposition, announces the engagement vof Charles and Louis Plamondon, re volving ladder artists, as one of the features for the entertainment of the patrons of the exposition. The Plamondons are at the head in their profession. Moreover, they are Topeka boys and their home is at 1114 Quincy street. - For three years the brothers have been doing their turn daily with the Ringling Bros.' circus, and they were seen in their startling and comio act here last season by from fifteen to twenty thousand people. ' Many of those who witnessed the performance did not know that the two brilliant per formers were Topeka boys, and that they spent as much time as possible each year at their home here. Not much time is given them for leisure, however. But every opportunity is quickly taken advantage of. An in cident in this connection serves to il lustrate. At the close of the last circus season, Charles, who attends to the business matters, made arrangements to go to Paris for a number of weeks' en gagement this winter. Louis agreed to the plans at first, but as the time drew near for them to cross the ocean he be gan to waver and finally absolutely re fused to go. Instead he came home to Topeka. His brother looked around for a time in an effort to secure some one who could go on with their act, but found only one man who could sub stitute. He, however, did not want to cross the ocean, and consequently the Plamondon brothers are doing turns over the vaudeville circuits on this side this winter. Their first contract with the Ringling circus was for three years. This con tract has been renewed for an addi tional three years. Theirs is a difficult act. Dressed as clowns, one as a Chinaman and the other as a Dutchman, they perform all sorts of antics on rings suspended from one end of a revolving ladder in mid air and a trapeze from the other end. They were among the organizers of the famous Puff club of the Ringling circus, a club somewhat exclusive, to which only the actor-folk of t?; organi zation belong. Today they begin an engagement at Omaha, lasting until January 18. Following the Omaha engagement they come to Topeka to play at the Midwinter exposition on the opening Charles and Louis Plamondon, Who Will Be Seen at the Mid-Win tor Exposition.

The Topeka dates are January 20-22 and January 28-30. They next play a two weeks' engage ment in the Castle circuit at Chicago, beginning February 21.

CHARGES AGAINST MOOBE. Former Weather Service Man Has Trouble With the Chief. Washington, Dec SI. Former . Fore caster Dunn at New York has written a letter to Secretary Wilson making charges against Prof. Willis L. Moore, chief of the weather bureau. Mr. Dunn resigned from the weather service dur ing the Spanish-American war, and since then has made repeated efforts toward reinstatement in it. Mr. Moore has as repeatedly, declined to recom mend Mr. Dunn's reinstatement, be cause Mr. Dunn did not proceed to the West Indies during the Spanish war, and therefore Mr. Moore declares he (Dunn) has no claim for reinstatement now. The charges which Mr. Dunn has made, the latest of which have come to hand very recently, Mr. Moore said, were all based upon his refusal to rec ommend Mr. Dunn's reinstatement.

HE police court business on hand this morning con sisted of the dis position of one small case where in a youth named Joe Etzel and a colored ditto, mix ed things, and the colored youth whose name was Floyd Phillips, got the worst of the encou nter. Etzel was arrested last night and gave hfmH The rtnlored boy came around to testify this morning, and found that toe had made a serious mistake. It seems that Etzel was leaving Frisbee's chili house on Fourth street, and en countered Phillips who jostled the cargo of empty beer bottles carried by the white boy, and received a punch in the optic which Jarred him some. The offi cer, Parcells, closed the deal by arrest ing Etzel. In passing on this momen tous case the court decided that $5 each was the popular price. "Gee, but that's a crusher," declared Etzel. "Is it?" ralldly asked the court. "Well, I will just make it seven, I don't think that will be such a crusher." Phillips discreetly kept his face closed, and got off with the original fine. This was the only case tried. Police business has taken a serious slump. The year is in a fair way to close Quietly, and unless something is started tonight, there will be no session tomorrow.
