TOPEKA STATE JOTJBNAX, FRIDAY EVENING. JANUARY 3, 1902.
disease Ninety Per Cent of It Really Caused From Poor Digestion, a Heal organic heart trouble Is tncur&bla, but scarcely one case in. a hundred is or ganic The action of the heart and stomach are both controlled by the same jrreat nerves. tht sympathetic and pneumogastric, and "vhen the stomach fails to properly digest Oie food and it lies in the stomach fer menting1, gases are formed which distend the organ, causing pressure on the heart and lungs, causing palpitation, irregular itv and shortness of breath. The danger from this condition is tnat the continued disturbance of the heart sooner or later may cause real organic heart trouble and in fact frequently does so. Furthermore, poor digestion makes the blood thin and watery and deficient in red corpuscles, and this further irritates and weakens- the heart. The most sensible thing to do for heart trouble is to insure the digestion and as similation of the food. This can be done by the regiilar use after meals of some safe, pleasant and effective digestive preparation, like Stu arts Dyspepsia Tablets, which may be found at most drug stores and which con tain the necessary digestive elements in a pleasant, convenient form. Thousands of people keep well and vig orous by keeping their digestion perfect by observing the rule of taking one or two of thfse tablets after each meal, or at least after each hearty meal. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets contain TJ. S. P. pepsin, diastase from malt and other natural digestives which act only on the food, digesting it perfectly and preventing acidity, gases, and the many diseased con ditions which accompany a weak stom ach, "When Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are used you may know you are not taking into the system any strong medicine or powerful drug, but simply the natural di gestive elements which, every weak stom ach lacts. So widely known and popular have these tablets become that they are now sold by every druggist in the United States, Can ada and Or eat Britain. FRANK COLLIER'S BRAIN Mounted on Glass Slide For Micro scopic Examination. Chicago, Jan. 3. Sliced into minute flecks and mounted on glass slides, the late Frank Collier's brain is being sub jected to the searching sight of a mic roscope under the trained eye of a nerve pathologist. Ir. Thorrothstein, of the University of Chicago. The first discovery of importance was made today, when the doctor announc ed that he had found some peculiar de generation of the brain cells of the once brilliant attorney. As a result of the discovery it is said that theory that Frank Collier's insanity was due to a blow on the head may have to be alter ed substantially. The brain has been in process of preparation for the micro scope for some time, and it is expected that the study of the cells will not be completed for some two months, NEW STEAMER LINE About to Be Established Between Frisco and Manila. San Francisco, Jan. 3. The Call says that & line of merchant steamers be tween this port and Manila will soon be established by the Kmpire Steam ship company, acting in conjunction with the owners of the steamer Albion. The company will put on the trans Pacific route the steamships Ohio, In diana and Pennsylvania, while the Al bion will run in the interisland trade. The three steamers first named have been engaged in the transport service until recently. They are of the same dimen sions but vary somewhat in tonnage owing to the difference in their fittings. They are 343 feet long, 43 feet beam and 24 feet 9 inches deep. WHITES MUST RULE. Gen. Wheeler Bays That PrincipleOver ahadowa All Else in the South. Cleveland, O., Jan. 3. Gen. Joseph Wheeler was in this city today. In a newspaper interview he stated in reply to a question on the possibility of a political break in the south: "There is no question that the su periority of the white race in the south must be maintained. Any one who has Been the south under the rule of the other color, as it was directly after trie war, can understand why this must be eo. For one reason, white supremacy alone can Insure financial stability. There will be no political break in the solid south by any party which tries to interfere from the north, through the medium of politicians, with the solving of the color problem by the south.''

Just Receired From the Ameri can Locomotive Works. OIL BURNING TUONSTER. Weighs Nearly 200 Tons Is 15 1-2 Feet Tall. Will Be Pnt to Work Hailing Mountain Trains. There Is in Topeka today one of the wonders of modern railroading. It is Santa Fe locomotive No. 988, the largest locomotive ever constructed in the his tory of the world. This monster engine is in the Santa Fe roundhouse, where it is the object of great interest to shopmen, railway officials, and many people who have only an indirect interest in railroading. Many visitors were at the round house yesterday for the purpose of inspecting the wonderful engine. Another engine of the same size as 98S Is being built for the Santa Fe at the American Locomotive works, at Schenectady, N. Y. Engine No. 9S8 is being set up at the shops here, and will leave in a few days under its own steam for the western part of the line, where it will be in ser vice. The engine is built for consuming oil as fuel, but is also adapted lor co;i is of the decapod compound type, hav ing two cylinders on each side and be ing supported by five pairs of driving wheels. The leading dimensions of the mon ster follow: The boiler at the smallest ring is 78 inches in diameter: at the largest, 88 inches. The fire box is 9 feet long and 79 inches wide. In the boner there are 418 flues each having a diam eter of two and a half inches and a length of 18 feet 6 inches. It has a working pressure of zzo pounds or steam to the square inch. The wheel base is 20 feet: total wheel base 28 feet 11 inches; total wheel base of engine and tender, 62 feet. Of the cylinders the high pressure are seventeen and a half inches in diameter; the low pressure 30 inches; stroke 34 inches. The valves are of the piston type. The diameter of each of the driving wheels is 57 inches. The machine stands 15 feet 6 inches above the rail, the dome and stack be ing about the same height. The tender has a capacity of 7,000 gallons of water and 2,2a0 gallons of oil. It is equipped with the Westinghouse air brake, and also has the water brake with vthich all locomotives are arranged in the mountains. By means of it the brakes are kept in operation when the air gives out. The total weight of the engine alone is 262.000 pounds and of engine and tank 393,000 pounds, steamed up and ready for service. It will go out In a day or two to Call fornia where it is to do work perman ently. Coal will be used in taking it over the line to that part of the system. GOOD BY TO AVEBT TTJHNER Presented With Diamond and Cut Glass by Middle Division Employes. Newton, Kas., Jan. 3. On New Tear's eve railroad men of all classes began to appear in the lobby of the Arcade hotel. It seemed as if every employe wno could be spared from his duties was there. There were switchmen, section men, conductors, brakemen, engineers, firemen, office employes, dispatchers, station employes and many others. At half past 8, led by the committee which had engineered the matter, the men marched to the hall on the second floor, where a deputation waited on Su perintendent and Mrs. Avery Turner and escorted them to the hall. Hera Dispatcher Ed Ives, on behalf of the men of the Middle division, presented to Mr. Turner a handsome diamond pin and a diamond ring, and to Mrs. Turner a costly cut glass water set. In hia speech of presentation Mr. Ives charged the superintendent with having treated the men under him with kindness and consideration and stated that as a pun ishment it had been decided to "stone" him out of town. Mr. Turner on be holding the beautiful present which had been purchased for him admitted that it was a real pleasure to him to be "stoned" out of town in such a man ner, and then brought counter charges of faithful survice and cheerful obedi ence against the men who have been serving under him. In a brief speech, which was eloquent because It was plainly heartfelt, he thanked the men for the gift and the good will mani fested towards him and expressed the hope that he would be able to see many of them often in his new home. Mrs. Turner also made a neat response in accepting the presents tendered her. After shaking hands with the retiring superintendent and his wife, the guests took their departure. Mr. Turner has served more than eight years as superintendent of the Middle division, and during that time has made himself the personal friend of almost every man on the division. His dealings with the men under him have been characterized by impartiality and consideration, and this explains his popularity. CTJT-OFF FROM SAN FRANCISCO Santa Fe Apparently Fixing: a New Short Line. Albuquerque, N. M., Jan. 3. The sur veying party of the Phoenix & Eastern railroad have moved their camp about 15 miles below Mesa City, and the work will now be pushed from that place to completion. This is the final survey, and the American Development com pany, of which Mr. Frank Murphy is president, will begin the grading of the new line from Phoenix to Benson about the middle of January. From that time on the road will be pushed rapidly to completion. This same company will construct a line from near Congress Junction on the S. F. P. & P. which will be pushed in a northwesterly direc tion to the Colorado river and prol)ably to Needles. This work it is believed will be done during the coming year and will open up some very rich coun try. With the short stretches of road completed the Santa Fe people by op erating the Phelps-Dodge road will have a short line from San .Francisco to the City of Mexico and New Orleans. CANCELLED $60,000,000. Northern Pacific Preferred Stock Is Being Paid For. The New York office of the Northern Pacific Railway company was kept open on New Year's day for the re ceipt and redemption of the preferred stock of that company. Upwards of $80,000,000 of the entire $75,000,000 of that issue of stock was received, paid for and cancelled. The stockredeemed abroad is not in cluded in the $00,000,000 cancelled at the New York office, and, considering that the day was a holiday, with banks and banking offices closed, it is thought the balance of the funds provided for this payment will not long remain unclaim ed in the company's vaults. B.OCB. ISLAND BUYS. Takes a Half Interest in the Omaha, Kansas City & Eastern. Kansas City, Jan. 3. It was authori tatively stated yesterday, although offi cial confirmation was lacking, that the Omaha, Kansas oity & Eastern and Kansas City & Northern connecting lines had been sold to the Burlington and Rock Island railroads and would be operated by them Jointly or in their joint interest. The line from Quincy to Pattonsburg was the only independent road running east and west between the main line of the Burlington in Iowa and the main line of the Burlington in Missouri, and, by securing joint control with the Rock Island of the Quincy-Pattonsburg line, the Burlington has removed from the field its only competitor in a large and important local territory. It has often been reported that the Burlington was trying to buy the "O. K." line, which has long been considered a valuable property for it to control. The Rock Island has also needed a part of the line particularly the Northern Con necting and there have been frequent reports of its efforts to secure control, but the joint ownership had not been even rumored prior to yesterday's an nouncement. The Rock Island will use the North ern Connecting tracks to gain an en trance to Kansas City. It is now using the Burlington from Cameron, and its tolls have been so high that it has been driven out of certain classes of Kansas City business at times because of in ability to compete at low rates and pay the heavy charges to the Burlington. Its Chicago-Kansas City line, using the Northern Connecting from Weatherby, will be about fourteen miles longer than its present line via Cameron and the Burlington, but it will avoid the Heavy tolls and will equalize the distance by its Trenton cut off. SANTA FE PACIFIC PAYS. New Mexican Counties Get Big Sums For Back Taxes. Judgment has been entered in the of fice of the district clerk of the Second judicial distriot at Albuquerque for $69 650.32 taxes due to Valencia county, and $17,483.91 due to McKinley county for delinquent taxes. The judgments were rendered after a long period of litigation in which the cases have been carried to the United States supreme court, the final com promise being considerably below the amount allowed by the court. The final decision is the result of a compromise between the territory and the Santa Fe Pacific Railway company. Frank W. Clancy, Esq., represented the counties of Valencia and McKinley in the cases. ANOTHER INVESTIGATION." Interstate Commerce Commission $o Tackle K, C. Grain Hates. Kansas City, Jan. 3. The interstate commerce commission will conduct an other investigation of alleged manipu lation of grain rates by railroad lines running out of Kansas City. Subpoe nas have been issued on grain men and a number of freight agents represent ing Kansas City railroads, to appear before the commission in this city on January 9, and explain their rates on grain to the Atlantic seaboaxd. The grain situation in Kansas City has been in a chaotic condition for several years and a similar investigation was at tempted by the commission here last spring, but nothing was developed. Now the commission, it is said, expects aid from the grain men and some sensa tions may be expected if they turn state's evidence. , MUCH WORK DONE.

The contest be tween Republican factions over the or ganization of the legislature is still in doubt as far as the house is concerned. The claims of either faction would indi cate that one element is confident of Price becoming speaker and the other of McKinnon winning, but the efforts of both show that there are yet "votes to get" by whomsoever becomes speak er. The list of unpledged members is, however, reduced to & half dozen. These six are said to have made no pledges to either side, and it is conceded that they hold the balance of power. There was still much done today from the homes of Senator Hanna in Wash ington, Senator Foraker in Cincinnati, Congressman Dick in Akron, Congress man Tyler in Columbiana and others, especially at Toledo, where Representa tive Denman is still considered by some as doubtful. There was much commu nication with all the counties in which doubtful members reside. The most prominent arrival was that of George B. Cox, the Cincinnati leader, who insists that he is "as good a friend of Senator Hanna as ever," but that he was pledged to Price for speaker before the junior Ohio senator broke with Price and that he is here now to do all he can for Price. The leadership of the anti-Hanna side was conceded to Cox on his arrival. It is claimed that the developments indicate that Congressman Tyler, of the old McKinley district, will likely be an opponent of Congressman Dick for the next Republican gubernatorial nomina- SATURDAY. Senator Foraker. between Senators Foraker and Hanna waxes fiercer and fiercer, and January tion and that Tyler from r.ia home is working as har for Price as Dick is working for McKinnon. - The lines have been distinctly drawn on the old question of local option. The liquor association has representa tives here for Price, and the anti-saloon league for McKinnon. in the last leg islature Price opposed the Clark local option bill, and McKinnon supported it. . The senate standing committees are selected by the senators themselves and the house committees are all named by the speaker, and it Is for the control of that office that the factions are fighting. Congressman Charles Dick, chairman of the Republican state committee did not reach Columbus, as announced.and he is not now expected. There have been reports that this was not a contest in which Senator Hanna was interested directly or per sonally or he would be in Ohio now to give the situation nis personal atten tion as Senator Foraker is doing. Some of the Price men who are said to have shared in this opinion and who said they would have supported McKinnon for speaker if Senator Hanna had per sonally requested them to do se, re ceived letters from Senator Hanna in which he not only makes this personal request, but also goes into a history of his experience since the election last November. He says he endorsed Price and others and was anxious for such an agreement as would avoid any con test till he found that slates had been made up for both the senate and the house Republican caucus with all his friends left out. He refers to the case of W. B. TJhl, of Cleveland, who had only one term as senate chief clerk and against whom an anti-Hanna man was slated. Senator Hanna insists that there had been a conspiracy against him and his friends, and appeals strongly for McKinnon, TJhl and others. ENTIRE TOWN SOLD. New fork Capitalist Bays .ill ness, Sedgwick Connty. Wichita, Kan., Jan. 3. The Beacon says: The 200 people of Anness, Kali., a thriving village in Erie township, Sedg wick county, now owe their allegiance to W. H. Wilson, of Arcade, N. M. at least insofar as the payment of rent is ooncerned, for he has bought a full interest in the land on which they live from the Arkansas Valley Township company, for nearly 13,000. Anness is located on 160 acres of land on the Englewood branch of the Santa Fe. It was founded in 1885 when towns were springing up all over Kansas and it now has a population of 200. It is a trading point for farmers of Erie town ship and it is thought that the Orient road will cross the Santa Fe at this place. The property in the town pays a good interest to the owner and Mr. Wilson spends about four months in a year there. He owns 5,000 acres of wheat in that vicinity. JUMP ONTO LOEB. Other Scientists Critioiso Hia New Theory. New Tork, Jan. 3. Prof. Starling, pro fessor of physiology at the University College of Nerve specialists according to a dispatch to the Journal and Ameri can, being asked concerning the discov eries of Prof. Loeb said: "Prof. Loeb is a man whose opinion is worthy of respect, for he has ac complished great work in physiology. As to this particular theory I think little: it was a jump in the dark, one of in numerable theories on the same sub ject, made up partly of a number of views already known to the world. "The living cell, or unit is a brick wall which physiologists have been unable to Bee through. Yet, we can tell what goes on outside the cell, but no more. Prof. Loeb's theory is an attempt to see through the wall. One difficulty about this living thing, is that it not only goes down, but up: it breaks down, then recovers itself and theories like Loeb's explain half the process the break down, but fail to explain the re covery. The real problem is the power of building up after breaking down. If Loeb s theory be pa: tly true. It only explains part, the less important part of the secret of living cells. This marks an advance, but not an epoch. Dr. Dawson Williams, editor of the British Medical Journal, said: "Prof. Loeb's explanation of his theory con sisted in a lot of assertions without a shadow of proof." , Prof. William Ramsey, of University college, said he did not believe in the Loeb theory, but qualified the remark by saying he was unable to speak with authority in the absence of scientific details. FEARS OF SUICIDE. Bonrbon County Farmer Mysteriously Disappears From Home. Fort Scott, Kas., Jan. 3. John W. Fairman, one of the best known farmers of the county, living four miles east of Fort Scott, left his sickbed Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning and the relatives and neighbors have been searching continually for him since yes terday morning, out tney can una no trace of him. It is known that Mr. Fairman has had some financial reverses recently to trouble him. His farm is mortgaged. and he ia considerably in debt. He had been trying to sell the farm and pay off his debts with the equity, but could not seem to find a buyer. This it is thought may have discouraged him. He ia an old soldier and a pioneer resident of this county. Recently in the land lot tery down in the Indian Territory he drew a good claim. GOOD USE OF PRIZE MONET.
