TOPEKA STATE JOURNAI TUESDAY EVENING, AUGUST B,1C02.
TAKE FIRST STEP. Way Opened For Topeka Manual , Training School. Option Secured on tbe John Martin Property. MUST BE A CHMGE. High School Is Already Filled to Oferflowing. The Site Will Be Bought For $9,500. The first step toward manual training in the Topeka school was taken by the board of education at the meeting last night when a resolution was passed providing for the purchase of ths nine lot on the corner of Harrison and Eigrhtn streets opposite the present high school building;. The board has been discussing the proposed manual training- high school for two years. The crowded condition of the present high school building must be relieved. Last term there were more scholars in attendance than could be comfortably accommodated. The at tendance for the coming term will be Increased. The board must provide some relief for the high school and the plan which has been suggested and discussed ' for a manual training high school .irhlch will relieve the present high school building and also provide manual training. Some time ago ETdward Wilder and P. I. Bonebrake bought the nine lots for $9,500, which is considered a bargain. When the present high school building was built these same lots were offered for $20,000. Mr. Wilder and Mr. Bone brake bought them when the board was unable to do so, with the idea of hold ing them until the board would buy thern for a manual training high school. The lots will be sold to the board for the same price for which they wern bought. Mr. J. W. Gleed offered a res olution to the effect that an option on them be bought by the board, which means that the board will buy them and pay for them at the rate of $2,000 a year until paid for. Mr. E. E. Roudebush, a new member of the board who took his seat last night, opposed the plan. He seemed to think that the price was too high, and that a new high school is not needed. Dr. A. S. Embree also opposed the reso lution on the ground that the board should build more graded schools before another high school is built. Mr. Wilder, who ia one of the strongest ad vocates for a manual training high school, explained his motive in buying the lots with Mr. Bonebrake to aid the board, and said: "We should have a manual training school so that we will turn out graduates who are capable of working. We now turn out people who can think and talk but cannot work, Tbe labor unions allow but a certain number of apprentices to work in the shops. It means that the men have shut tbe doors against their own boys. They cannot go into the shops and learn to be good mechanics. They are forced out into the streets. The boy who in turned out of our schools should ba able to earn a good living as a useful citizen. We had better begin to edu cate tha children when they are a little older and finish their education in a manner which will make them useful citizens. I believe in kindergarten work and I believe in children going to school when they are Ave years old instead of seven, but before looking out for the yomrpest children I think we should look to the thorough education and training of the older ones," J. W. Priddy, from the First ward, said: "I believe the people wish to reach out to. both the old and the young pupils and, I vote for this resolution." When the vote was taken tfce entire membership of the board from the First, Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth wards voted for it. Both Dr, Embree and Mr. Roudebush are from the Sixth ward. When It came their time to vote there were 10 votes for the resolution and nona against. Dr. Embree voted a half each way and Roudebush was the only one to cast a vote against it. At the September meeting the board will decide upon a proposition for the issuing of bonds for $100,000 for the building of the manual training high school and soma ward schools. The meeting of the board was one of those hand-to-hand sort of side-talks-with affairs where every one enjoyed himself. P. I, Bonebrake, chairman of the finance committee, nearly created a riot by appearing in his shirt sleeves. Then he went to work in the voice of an auctioneer reading bills. No one listened to him and the bills were allow ed. The members of the board seemed quite jolly. They chatted and talked and whispered regardless of such small matters as bills. The offer of R. J. Ketchum to pay $50fl for the 16 lots owned by the board on Taylor and Grant" streets in North To pe ka was considered. Dr. J. F. Buck and J. W. Priddy, the members from the north side, declared the lots worth more money. "We had better keep them than sell them at that price," suggested Mr. Wilder. "We might set a price on them," sug gested Mr. Priddy. "Set the price at $100 a lot," said Mr. Gleed. 'Oh, that Is too much," said several. "Well, you don't want to sell them," replied Gleed. "Couldn't we move Douglass school over there?" asked Mr. Wilder. "We might get some scholars." "About as many as we have at Doug lass school in Lawman Hill," replied Priddy referring to tbe scholarless school. "Why not move the lots over the river?" suggested Dr. Embree. The staid old school fathers stopped their raillery long enough to accept the proposition of Chris States to repair the boiler of the heating plant at Polk school for $IS0. This Is another one of the heating plant which did not result In satisfaction. The bid of F. P. Edson to put in san itary piumbtng at Clay school for $1,658 was accepted. The report was received that the school board's share of paving tax for the 9 lots of Polk school on street would be $1,069 and the paving tax of the six Clay school lots on Clay street would be 639. Mr. Matthews moved that the paving tax be paid In Install ments. "I second the motion as we are busted now," said Mr. Bonebrake. A communication from S. S. Ott ask ed that during the winter the use of the laboratory at the high school be granted the T. M. O. A. for their classes In chemistry. The request will be con sidered. Superintendent Davidson suggested that the fall term of the schools begin Tuesday, September 2, and that date was adopted by the board for the begin ning of the term. Mr. Edward Wilder, who attended the National Teachers' association meeting at Minneapolis, made some informal com ments. He said he was surprised at the convention to see that the majority of the teachers present were quite young. He remarlced that he thought the te.ioli.irs lii the city schools, as a rule, are too young and that the board should gradually work older heads Into the teaching foree. Mr. Gleed made some remark in sympathy with Mr. Wilder' Ideas. . v "I aitree with you," said Mr. Bonebrake, who happens to be a banker. ''For in stance, if we want a lawyer we want old ones." He looked at Mr. Gled, who happens te be a lawyer. There was a silence for a moment. Mr. Gleed was in deep thought. The members of the board were listening for the broadside. "Yet I have known young1" bankers te discount old ones," re plied Mr. Gleed. The board then proceeded to transact business and abandon repartee for a while. Rev. F. E. Mallory was unanimously elect ed president of the board and J. W- Gleed was elected vice president, Joseph Stewart was re-elected clerk. The new members took their seats, Russell Barber succeeded p-r. J. F. Buck from the First ward; Fred Keith succeeded G, H. Matthew from the Fifth ward and E. E. Roudebush succeed ed J. W. Dailey from the Sixth ward. The board decided on the school levy for the coming year of 16 mills. The levy for the general fund will be 12 mills, for the building fund 8 mills and the interest and Sinking fund 1 mill. The levy last year was lo mills 8 the Interest and sinking fund had been reduced a half mill since 1300 and will now be put back at the for mer levy of I mill. HANNA'S AMBITION. He Says It lias Been to Merit the Respect of Labor. Cleveland, Aug. 6. The employes of the Cleveland City Railway company, of which Senator M. A. Hanna is presi dent, met in a downtown ball last night and gave to Senator Hanna a valuable cane. In acknowledging the gift Sena tor Hanna expressed his sincere thanks to his employes for their gift and inci dentally spoke upon the relations that he hopes soon to see existing between capital and labor. In part, he said: "I cannot adequately express my feel ings on this occasion. It has been the one ambition of my life to merit the respect, if not the affection, f the men in my employ. I have been with labor ing men all my life and have been their employer for many years, and this nipht means something to me, for it brings with it the satisfaction of knowing that so large a number of men in my employ have been satisfied with my career as an employer. J'Tour chairman has referred to the civlo federation. I say to you that were it not for my official position and my duties as a public servant, I would de vote more of my time to the policies on which that organization Is found." Concerning the anthracite strike Sen ator Hanna said: "When the great an thracite strike was threatening our fed eration worked nard for weeks to avert it, to bring men and employers together. but failed. After it was on we worked hard to settle it, but failed. However, in that matter it is my personal satis faction to know that the statement that I made at the time that he men would not go back on their word, has been kept and tnat a sympathetic strike has been averted. I told the federation that there would be no sympathetic strike among tne bituminous miners. "I believe in manhood, Labor organ izations are not things which can be sued for breach of contract. They have no corporate existence. But I would rather have the promise of a laboring man. backed only by his sense of honor and his manhood, than any agreement wmct) might De enforced by law. Man. hood and integrity are the same, wheth er they belong to a miner, a street rail way man or a boss. For myself, I have no higher ambition than to work for the purpose of bringing capital and labor nearer together and to live out my life in Cleveland, where I have lived for 62 years. NEW COMMITTEES.

Waters ana Wife Each Given $25 Fine. DIDN'T HAVE A FEAST. Officers Rudely Interrupted the Potgangers. Arthur Sparks is Brought Back From Kansas City. AMILY rows are usually settled in police court by the discharge of the defendants with an admonition, to "don't let It occur again," but Mr, R. Waters and wife, Eliaa Waters, both colored, of S2i Crane street, got a change of program this morning. The pair have been In the habit of fight ing whenever the spirit moved them. and this morning about o'clock, after they had absorbed enough of the "spirit," they started a rough house. Messrs, Henderson and Wilcox, officers of the law, as it is writ ten in Topeka, called at the Waters residence in time to corral the family and put out a blase started by them while playing ping pong with the parlor lamp. They had been absorbing boose in large quantities, and It was evident that the booze would not mix properly with the Waters, so that the officers found it necessary to gather the pair, and escort them to the keep. This morning when the court kindly fined them only $35 per, Mrs. Waters shed bit ter tears, and refused to be comforted by the court's kindly assurance that it was nothing serious. The United Order of Imported Pot' grangers were scheduled to syend the balmy summer eve in picnlckiny on the green sward in the city park, but some cruel, heartless coppers surround ed the bunch, confiscated the refresh ments, and instead of the joyous time scheduled, they are all doing time of a different variety. Biessrs. Tom Smiley, G. Washington White, Jas. Ryan, Jno. Ryan, Jno, King and Julius Heme, all members of theWprknlt Travelingmen's union, met during the day and organized the social order aforementioned. They secured two cases of brew that made some eastern village famous, together with certain cabbages and potatoes. Then they repaired to the hank of the treacherous Kaw, which was perfectly harmless as far as they were concern- ed, as they had no Intentions of bathing. When the patrol wagon arrived about sun-down the entire bunch was hilar iously full, and one member of the clan was preparing to treat the assembly to a rare hobo etew.containing cabbages, potatoes, onions and other ingredients. But alas, the stew will haunt them in their dreams only. The rude policemen grabbed the entire works, beer and all. The cabbages and potatoes are still on exhibition at the keep, but tbe beer has strangely disappeared. Peace tc the empty bottles! O, irony of fate! To think that these Knights of the Rail road Truck should be languishing on the steingarten, with one day on and four to play. Contrary to all expectations. Chas. Lawson, the jointist who was charged with resisting an officer and carrying concealed weapons, was discharged from tne police court last evening, Lawson's trial had been postponed be cause his face, which had been treated, or mistreated, by little Officer Barrett, who is a facial fresco artist, would not permit Mr. Lawson to attend the court at an earlier date. After hearing the evidence the court decided that the charge of resisting an officer was noth ing more than a personal fight between the officer and Lawson, and that tne big jointist had been sufficiently pun ished. Mr. TJrmy seemed aggrieved be cause Lawson was discharged on the resistance clause, and refused to prose cute on the other charges. This leavee a slim opening for Lawson. to prosecute Barrett on the charge of assault, and it is the opinion of the entire force that the court made a mistake. Among the cases which will not be prosecuted in police court is a strenuous set-to between Fox and Devro, two local colored musicians, who are wont to plunk the banjo on the thoroughfares and subsequently pass the Panama. It seems that Mr. Fox filled his person with bad brew last Saturday eve, and afterward passed bis lid, taking up cer tain and sundry coins. His partner. Mr. Devro. called for a fair and im partial division of the spoils, as per cus tom, but Mr. Fox was filled with an idea that he was too foxy for anything like that. He could not even see his partner as they passed by. As a gentle reminder of his presence Mr. Pevro then landed on Mr. Fox with the rim of bis banjo, making therewith an embrasure in Mr. Fox's pelt. Mr. Fox suddenly came to, shook hands with his confed erate, and swore that he was a gentle man, and that he had done the proper thing under the circumstances. It is stated that he also made haste to divide the collection, Arthur Sparks, the young Kansas Oity man who was brought back by Deputy Sheriff Stewart yesterday, charged with the larceny of 1,056 cigars from T. M. James, Jr., of North Topeka, is the son of a former Kansas City detective. A Kansas City paper Bays of the young man: "The clerk In the cigar store reported to his employer that the cigars had been taken from him by force, but Sparks says he and his companion won them playing a slot machine. Anyone who knows young Sparks can readily credit his story. It is currently believed her that: the slot machine that he cannot beat has not yet been invented. So large and constant were his winnings when the gambling Slot machines were in vogue that it is said he was finally barred from purying them. "Young Sparks would never reveal the secret of his success in hypnotising an unresponsive piece of machinery so that it give up to him the coin accumulated from the contributions of the gullible, but his 'ability' in that direction cannot be Questioned." - If he ean prove that he won the cigars from James, it will be one on the estab lishment. Under any circumstances the boy in charge of the store acted fool ishly In allowing Sparks to play a dol lar on the side. Owner of the penny machines say they cannot even afford to allow a side bet of a dime on the whirl, as the machine are so made that they pay only a small margin to the house. ' IT WAS A FAILURE. Colonial Conference Did Not Basalt Aeoordina; to Anticipations. New York, Aug, g. Colonial Secretary Chamberlain's admissions on Friday are regarded by the Radical press, says a Tribune dispatch from London m proof irom nis point of view tnat tne colonial -conference . has been a failure, Mr. Chamberlain's objects in convening it. they say, were better adjustments of Imperial defense and imperial trade. He hoped and expected to lay the founda tions for a customs union, and to ob tain the consent of the premiers to a scheme under which the greater colon ies would make specific contributions to the cost of defending the empire. The premiers will have nothing to do with a customs union, since It would mean a loss of revenue whlqh the states they represent could Ul afford. They will have nothing to do with any contribute tion to military necessities which are fixed or compulsory. They argue that should any power, Germany or anoth er, land troops in Canada or send a hostile fleet into Canadian waters. It would be faced by an American veto. The one power that could Invade Can ada is the United States, against whom England, the dispatch adds, would be powerless, CAREER IS CHECKED. A Swindler fall Down en Bis Vint Attempt. San Freneiaeo, Aug, B.w"Liutenant" Edgar N. Coffey of New York has been ar. rested in Oakland, charged with passing a bogus check on Mrs. Barbara, a land lady of the Oalindo hotel. His arrival at the hotel a few days ago was preceded by letter from Portland, Ore., purporting to be signed by George W, Mclver, captain of the Seventh Infantry, U. 8. A., stating that Coffey was a seeond lieutenant of that company who had been sent south on official business, requesting- that his name and rank be kept secret and asking the hotel people to cash a check for $160, which had been given him. The letter was writ, ten pn official paper and the lieutenant brought with him many apparently gen 'ulne credentials. The check was cashed by Mrs. Barbara, whose suspicions were aroused, however, when a second check was presented by Coffey. An investigation was made and his arrest followed. Among his effects were found a great number of, army official envelopes, large quantities of army stationery, many army transportation blanks, a number of blank checks and a large army revolver. At first he strongly protested his innocence, but finally admitted that be was not what he claimed to be, but asserted that this was his first offense against tbe law. He Is a man of fine appearance and good ad dress. STEAMER LINES COMBINE. Blorgan and Cromwell Interests Have Been United. New York, Aug.S.
