TOPEKA STATE JOURNAL WEDNESDAY EVENING. AUGUST 6, 1G02.
6 CASH FLOWS IN. Foreign Corporations Begin to Pay Charter Fees. Supreme Court Decision Means Thousands of Dollars to State. THE FIRST IS $1,527.50. Central Coke Company Puts Up the Fee. Insurance Companies Must Pay Large Sums. The Central Coal and Coke company, of Kansas City, has forwarded to the secretary of state a check for $1,527.50 in payment of the company's charter fees under the recent decision of the supreme court in the American Book company case. This is the first com pany to advance the fees. The company has been doing busi ness in' the state for several years with out paying charter fees. In company with hundreds of other foreign corpora tions. .W. C. Perry, general attorney for the company, writes that they wish to comply with the laws of the state and as the supreme court decision seems to be very explicit in .the matter they forward the amount of their charter fees. Immediately after the decision was handed down and published the office of the secretary of state was flooded with requests from foreign corporations asking if they would be compelled to pay charter fees. The inquiries came all in a bunch and seemed to come from corporations which were anxious to comply with the requirements of the law. Those which proposed to wait for an invitation to pay up the fees evi dently did not write, for all of the in quiries came within a few days and then ceased. Secretary of State Clark was in New Tork at the time and Assistant Secre tary Hill P. Wilson had copies of the supreme court opinion printed and for warded to the inquirers. It was one of these opinions that brought the re sponse from the Central Coal and Coke company. If this opinion is enforced against all foreign corporations now doing busi nesb in the state, and there seems to be no reason why it should not be, it will brinar thousands of dollars into the state treasury. Only a small portion of the money will go into the general rev enue fund, however. The fees of the capital stock, amounting to $300 on the first million dollars of capital in big corporations, and $200 on each succeed ing million, all goes into the permanent school fund. This money is paid di rect to the state treasurer. The regular fee for the charter of $27.50, which is oaid resrardless of the amount of capi tal stock, is paid to the secretary of state and goes into the general revenue 1UUU, XL II 111 VVCIll LIIC CllCiai revenue fund the charter fees might go a long ways toward paying the state s expenses for the next few months. The big insurance companies alone will have to pay in thousands of dollars under the new decision. Their capital aggregates hundreds of millions of dol lars. Then there are some railroads ttnd ether big corporations which will add largely to the fund. The new char ter which the Rock Island recently took out in Iowa will cost the company $25,127,50 as a filing fee in Kansas under the i.ew supreme court decision. The Kansas fees are not nearly so large, however, as those of some other states. For instance, the Iowa charter cost the Rock Island over $125,000 in fees. The Kansas fee is only about one fifth as much. The task of enforcing the payment of tne fees against the foreign corpora tiers will probably devolve upon At torney General Godard. At present Mr. Godard is in California. He left the day the supreme court decision was handed down and will not return for three or four weeks, so it cannot be tula what course he will pursue. THIS FARMER WON OUT Stood Pat and Bluffed Lightning Bod Sharks. Tola. Kan.. 'Aug. 6. Kdward Swenson a farmer in Allen county, had a bout with a lightning rod outfit the other day tn which the farmer ultimately didn't come out second best. Swenson recently built a fine large barn and painted it red. It was the finest barn in that section. A lightning rod agent heard of it. He wanted to advertise his goods, so he told Swenson that he would wire and rod the barn for $7.5 provid Ing Swenson would tell the farmers in that vicinity who did the work. Swen- aon agreed and signed up a contract. A few days later a force of men came on and put up the lightning rods and presented a bill for $150. Swenson said the contract price was $7.50. They sprung the contract on him and sure enough he had signed up for $150. He am not read the contract when he sign ed It. He notified the lightning rod men that he would pay them exactly wnat ne oromlsed $7.50 and no more. They insisted getting the $150. Thines were becoming rather warm about that. lime, swenson sent his boy over in a field to notify a threshing outfit that they were wanted at the new barn at once to attend a necktie party. The Doy explained the trouble. The thresh ers stopped the machine and started for the barn in a body. The lightning rod men saw them coming, took Swenson's $7.50 and left. Swenson's new barn is literally covered with lightning rods and tney only cost mm 37.50. Pensions for Kansans. Washington, Aug. 6.

Congressman Calderhead has made the following statement regarding his candidacy for United States senator from Kansas: "I have thought that it would be soon enough to make this decision after the election in November, but the other can didates are presenting themselves now, and I do not wish to be put in the po sition of being considered as a condi tional candidate. It is better for the party to know who will be candidates in time to give them fair consideration. I made the announcement in answer to many letters received from all parts of the state. "I will not neglect my campaign for congress in this district, for the people have been so loyal in their support of me that I cannot neglect any services they may need. I will visit as many places in the state as I can during the time. I cannot make a close campaign to secure instructions from the counties to members of the legislature. I think the members of the legislature ought to be free to act on their best judgment at the time of the election of a senator. "I am deeply interested in the ques tions that will require the earnest at tention of congress during the next six years. The wonderful expansion of business in the world and the great or ganizations for carrying it on, the necessity of a correct system of banking and currency, the opening of the Isth mian canal, the conditions of trade with South America, the opening of trade with the Orient and with continental Russia, the means and methods of in ternational commerce, including trade relations with Cuba, the preservation of the world's peace, are only part of the work that will demand the active at tention of congress for the next six years. It is the most responsible work men are now called upon to perform. "To be selected to represent Kansas in all of this work in the United States senate would be a very great honor. I trust that my record may commend me to the representatives chosen and charged with the duty of electing a sen ator." KEMPFF'S WORK. The Admiral Will Unify All Marine Means of Defense.

Kansas City, Aug. ft Grading has commenced along the route of the pro posed line from Olathe to Kansas City and it is more than a possibility that old Merrlam park, which will be direct ly on the line, will be thrown open again after, being closed for years. It is hardly ten miles from Kansas Ciy and is re membered by many as one of the most beautiful plots of ground for miles around. Ten years ago it was a popular play ground for the public here and across the line and it was recognized as the place for all-day outings and pic nics. It was far removed from noise and surroundings of a city and madt a beautiful park. It was reached by the old Memphis route, now part of the Frisco system, but with a trolley line running there the trip would be many times pleasanter. The re-opening of Merrlam park would be a popular move as there is no longer a suitable plaee for picnics and outings of Sunday schools and other organizations. The promoters of this new electric line promise- that the line will be In operation within the next year. Con tracts for all grading between here and Olathe have been let and about a mile of work has been already done. The grading force started at Lenexa and is working toward Kansas City. - . The board of directors of the road, composed of T. A. Milton, B. L. Stine, J. Smith, L. Odom, F. C. Goodwin, J. O. Beety and L. H. Handesberger, took an inspection trip with the board of county commissioners over the route yesterday and examined the work which has been done in Jackson county. Aftei the return they held a meeting in Rose dale, at which they were waited upon by a body of citizens who asked that the route which now extends through Wtstport be changed to include Rose daie. The original routing of the road did not include Rosedale, but tne road Ias been unable to secure a franchise through Wyandotte county, and the pro moters claim that they are being dis criminated against as a franchise for a line to Topeka was granted to another company about two weeks ago. The Kansas City & Olathe electric railway also proposed building on to Topeka, leaving the main line at Lenexa. The road officials say that the work from now on will be pushed. The con tract for the grading from Lenexa to Olathe, a distance of six miles, was let to Peter Egan, of Marshallville, la., at the meeting yesterday. Negotiations for the ties and rails are now on, and the contracts will be closed soon. . 6 BAGS OF MONEY. (Continued from First Page.) a 20 minute stop was made for break fast. Engineer John E. Mooney of Minneapolis told a vivid story of the holdup. He said: -. "The robbers stopped the train by swinging a white light As soon as it stopped two men jumped into the cab and covered us with revolvers. One of them told the ireman to cut off the en gine. After this was done, the man who was poirting a gun at my head told me to pull the engine up a ways, -and I ran her up half a mile. Then they or dered me to jump off, and we walked back towards the train where we were joined by the express messenger and another robber. They took us to the rear of the buffet car and told us to sit there. One of the robbers left uv They worked for an hour blowing open the safe, and finally brought the en gine down again and all of them got aboard it - , "A few feet from the train they told me to jump off and run, whi;h I most assuredly did. They ran tb engine up seven miles and left her dead." Mr. Mooney has been running on the Burlington for 15 years, and this was his first experience with road men. He believes that the robbers killed one of their own number, either purposely or accidentally. Several shots were fired, some by the robbers and the rest by the express messenger. Mr. Mooney got a good look at one of the men, whose mask had slipped from his face, and describes him as young, of sandy com plexion, and ' about u feet 8 inches in height. He wore good clothes. t, Mr. Mooney believes that the bags se cured by the robbers contained only $L--00. , THE TOPEKA PLACER. Active Work Well Under Way at Fairplay. . Samuel T. Howe will leave Thursday for Fairplay, Col., to look after the In terests of the Topeka Placer company operating at that point. Mr. Howe is secretary and W. H. Davis president of this company.. The stockholders include about forty prominent Topekans. The shares are all sold; none is now on the market. The land has been paid for in cash.

Miller, an hydraulic engineer of many years' experience, is in charge of the construction and operation. The company has the funds for the equip ment and a large cash balance in the treasury. " ' - "STEEPLE JACK" DEAD. He Fell 98 , Feet and Was Killed In stantly. New Tork, Aug. 6. Daniel Barry, a daring climber, known as "Steeple Jack" fell ninety-eight feet while working In the city hall tower and was Instantly killed, says a Philadelphia special to the Herald. Barry placed the electric lights' around the brim of the statue of William Penn which caps the hall tower 540 fee! above the pavement and occasionally would lower himself over that and hang in mid-air by his hands.
