TOPEKA STATE JOURNAL MONDAY EVENING. SEPTEMBER 8. 1S02.
WAR STORIES. President Roosevelt Spent Sun day Listening to Them. Rode Over Battlefields of Look out Mountain and Others. SET A SWIFT PACE. Cavalrymen Fell From Their Horses Trying to Follow. Ambulance Corps Compelled to Pick Them Up. Chattanooga, Tenn., Sept. 8. Presi 3ent Roosevelt was the guest of the citizens of Chattanooga Sunday, and right royally was he entertained. He fame to Chattanooga primarily to at tend the national convention ol the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen, and he will be the guest of the railroad mn hut Snnriav Chattanooga as a whole entertained him. From ' early morning until late in the evening he was driven from one historic place to another, and the details of the battles that have made this city famous were explained to him by men wno were par ticipants in the struggles. The hattleflelds of Chickamauga, Mis sionary Ridge, Orchard Knob and Look out Mountain were driven over. Last night he attended the First Bap tist church, of which Rev. J. W. Bronther Is the Dastor. The presidential train arrived here promptly at 8:30 a. ra. There was a lai-ire crowd at the station, and not withstanding the day was Sunday the president was accorded a warm wei come. A committee composed of Governor McMillin. Mayor .A. W. Chambliss. con; rressman John A. Moon. General H. V Boynton, General A. P. Stewart and Captain J. P. Smart, members of the Chkamauga Park commission; Gen eral A. W. Wiley and Captain J. w Khipp, entered the president's car and welcomed him to the city. Trolley cars were in waiting and after the formal greeting was over the start for the Chieamauea battlefield was made. At the entrance to Chickamauga park the Seventh United States cavalry, un der command of Colonel Baldwin, which acted as the president's escort through the park, was drawn up. lhe presi dent, with General Boynton, president of the park commission, mounted horses and after the other members of the party entered carriages the drive through the park began. The cavalcade was hardly under way before the presi dent started his horse at a sharp trot, and for a mile and a half led the regi ment a merry chase over the battle field. The pace was so hot that several of the troopers were unhorsed, and It was necessary to call the ambulance Into service. After inspecting a portion of the field the president stopped at the camping grounds of the regiment and reviewed the regiment, together with the Third battery of field artillery, under com mand or Captain Niles. The review too place upon the spot where, thirty-nine years ago, on Sunday morning, the con federate brigade of General Manigault, of Hindman's division, was repulsed in a desperate charge by a portion of Gen eral wilder s brigade of cavalry. At the conclusion of the review, the Seventh cavalry went ' through their new calisthenics drill. The trooners were dismounted and. to the accompaniment of the band, performed their evolutions. The president at first was disinclined -to witness a drill on Sunday, but upon its being represented to him that the men were anxious that he should see the drill and as this was the only opportun ity ne would nave to do so. he consent ed. Luncheon was served soon after ward and then divine services, which the president attended, were held on tne park grounds. The services were conducted by Evan gellst Porter and were of a verv im pressive nature. At their conclusion the president made a short address to the Boldlers. He complimented them nnrvn their soldierly appearance and also for the splendid drill they had put up. He said that he had enjoyed his ride with them very much. His remarks were frequently interrupted by clapping of nanas, and wnen tie concluded, the sol diers, led by Colonel Baldwin, gave him three hearty cheers. The president also complimented the members of Ttood B of the State Guard, under command of Captain Fyfe, which formed a guard of nonor at tne depot and which also ac companied him on his visit to Lookout mountain. At the conclusion of the president's remarks, and as he was about to depart "Garry Owen." the selection to the strains of which the Seventh cavalry went into tne battle of Little Bie Horn where Custer and so many other brave men lost tneir lives, was called for. "Yes, give us 'Garry Owen,' " said the president. The band struck up this spir ited march and rendered it amid the cheers of the crowd. A very pleasing incident occurred shortly before the president resumed his inspection of the battlefield. A deleea tion of citizens of Georgia, headed by H. A. Harper of Rome, presented to him a cane cut from the Chlckamausra battlefield. It is of hickory, with silver head and band, suitably Inscribed. 0: the head is the following: Presented to President Roosevelt by Citizens of the Seventh Congressional District of ueorgla, Sept. 7. 1902." On the band are the names of six of the generals who participated .in the battle of Chicka mauga Longstreet. Wheeler. Hnnl Rosecrans, Thomas and Boynton. The Seventh Georgia district was the home of President Roosevelt's mother, and he alluded to this fact, in accepting the rift. The presentation speech was made by Moses Wright, of Rome.to which the president responded as follows: "My Dear Mr. Wright I cannot say how touched and pleased I am. I can imagine no gift that would have Dleased me more than to have the young men from my mother's state present me this cane with the names of six generals, three of whom wore the blue and three or whom wore the gray, but whose de scendants and kinsfolks are equally loyal to the flag as it now is. I want to mention one curious thing. Tou have on here General Wheeler's name. I served under him at Santiago. General Hood fought in command of the south ern army. One of his sons was in my regiment and fought with great gal lantry. i am so muen obliged I can tell you how I appreciate it. No gift could have been more appropriate and riven in pleasanter epirit and exactly at tne rignt time. 1 thank you most warmly." When he resumed his inspection of tne Dattieneld the president dispensed with the cavalry escort and entered a carnage with General Boynton, Secre tary Cortelyou and Actlnr Grand Mas. ter Hannahan, of the Brotherhood of ijocomotive iremen, whose convention . begins here todav. Snoder&as Towet whieh is seventy feet high, was soon reached and. notwithstanding- the warm weather, the president walked to the top, wnere a splendid view of the bat tlefleld was obtained. General Boynton sad Captain Smart pointed out the many points of interest and explained the positions occupied by the different commands. The president was greatly interested n manv of the monuments which mark the battlefields, and after reading the inscription on that erected by the state of Kentucky, had Secretary Barnes make a note of it. The trip extended through Missionary Ridge to Orchard Knob. Along the route the president frequently was greeted by groups of people to whom he responded by raising his hat. At one point on the road a number of children waved small American flags as the president passed. When Orchard Knob was reached the president walked through it to the trolley cars which con veyed the party to the foot of Lookout mountain. At the top of the mountain large crowd was assembled whicn cheered the president as he left the car. Accompanied by General Boynton ana other members of his party the presi dent proceeded to Point Lookout, where a magnificent view of the valley of the Tennessee and surrounding country was had. Here General Boynton welcomed him in the following words: 1 am glad to welcome an American prince this time, and doubly glad to see you and your secretary here after the accident of last week." The president responded with a smile and a bow. General Boynton then des cribed to the president briefly topo graphically the different operations con nected with the battles around Chatta nooga. He found the president an at tentive listener, he not interrupting the story to ask a question. When General Boynton had concluded the president remarked: "It is a wonderful battle field." Dinner was served on the mountain and then the party returned to the city. During the progress of the trip down the mountain a number or children threw two large bunches of golden rod to the president, who stood on the front platform of the car. He caught one of them and waved his thanks to the lit tle folks. An immense crowd was as sembled about the hotel and they cheer ed the president as he alighted from his carriage. One of the incidents of the day which pleased the president very much was the meeting of three members of his old command who served with him in Cuba. They were Lieutenants CartweU and Patlmer, of the Seventh cavalry, both serving with him as privates, and Mr. Crocker of Georgia, who was with the president at San Juan. WARNS DRUG STORES. State Pharmacy Association Stirs Mr. Nichols to Action. County Attorney Galen Nichols has taken a step against the drug stores which sell liquor illegally. He has made the move on account of a complaint made by W. E. Sheriff, of Ellsworth, secretary of the state board of phar macy. The druggists in Topeka who do a legitimate business complained to Sec retary Sheriff that there were several drug stores in Topeka which did not have any registered pharmacist employed or connected with the store. The state law requires that at least one registered pharmacist be employed at every drug store. Secretary Sheriff came to To peka to investigate. He-found several drug stores minus any persons who know powdered alum from quinine. These stores do quite a nourishing liquor business and a registered phar macist is a- luxury. Secretary Sheriff complained to County Attorney Nichols. Nictiols has addressed letters to several of the stores warning them that unless they employ registered pharmacists at once be will proceed against them. IS MISS CLUPPER DEAD Left Letter Saying She Would Die and Disappeared. The people of Oakland are excited over what they believe is the suicide of Miss Daisy Clupper. Saturday evening the young woman left home ostensibly to go buggy riding. After she left i note was found saying that she had de cided to drown herself and bar body would be found in the Kansas river. She said that her determination to end her life was due to financial troubles. Since then no trace has been found of Miss Clupper, though it was ascertained that she did go buggy riding with a young woman friend. She has been the sole support of a widowed mother.

WON'T! AVE HIM. Marshall's Band Objects to Be ing Unionized hy Ceilley. Organizer Says He Will Take Away Charter. LABOR DAT MUDDLE. Why the Band Didn't Appear in Parade. Director Marshall Says Things Will Be Smoothed Out. Slight difficulties have arisen between the members of Marshall's band and Charles F. Ceilley. organizer for the American Federation of Labor over the proposed organization of a local lodge of the American Federation of Music ians, to include all the members of the band, or else compulsory action on 'the part of Mr. Ceilley to have the charter of the lodge already in existence and in cluding 21 of the bandmen. revoked. Mr. Ceilley has appeared at the band rooms several times and has spoken in tne in terests of organized labor, but a num ber" of his auditors evidently have been Indifferent to his arguments and he de Clares that either the whole organization must become unionized, the union men must quit playing with the non-union, or he will take away the charter which the union members hold. . The advantages which Mr. Ceilley claims in his effort at organization is tnat union men are enabled to go any where and play for a stipulated union schedule, which is above tiiat received by musicians outside of the brotherhood. Already he has installed a lodge of col ored musicians and it is his desire to carry it among the other musicians of the town. For the most part there seems no disposition among the men who compose Marshall s band to antag onize organization, but some of them seem . to have taken a dislike to Mr Ceilley and declare that they will not go into a union instituted by him. In oth er words it is simply a personal matter between them and Mr. Ceilley. They say that long before he came to Topeka they had considered the plan of getting into the union, and that they still intend to do so although not with his assitance. They assert their belief that little will be gained, because there are few union musicians in this locality, but they manifest a desire to organize. The trouble seems -4o date back to Labor day, when a proposition to have Marshall s band play was rejected. Some weeks before that time the mat ter had been broached to Mr. Marshall by members of the committee on ar rangements for the trades unions,' and a contract was drawn by Secretary Barnes of the band stipulating that the band was to play in the parade in tne forenoon, at Garfield park in the after noon, and furnish the park, over which it has Jurisdiction, for the sum of $150. Mr. Marshall figured that that being only about $1.50 a man was about the most reasonable figure he could make. Besides this the trades council commit tee members say the band wished to reserve practically all the stand rjriv- ileges in the park, thus cutting off the source of revenue which they thought should be theirs. So after the contract had been held it was returned unsigned, accompanied Dy a letter from R. I. Palmer, secretary of the trades council, stating that the committee had voted down the proposition, for one reason because it was believed that the Drice which the bandsmen wished for their services was exorbitant. Marshall and his men say that so far as his men were concerned the incident dropped there, although there are hints from other sources that the matter of refusing to get into tne union cut some figure This is strenuously denied by Mr. Pal mer, who should know all the par ticulars of the case. At any rate, no further move was made until last week Mr. Ceilley went before the band at its rooms and gave a short talk, urging them to Join in the reorganization scheme and hinting that he would be compelled to take away the charter of the union already existing unless such action were taken. He was plied with numerous questions by the band mem bers, and there was some little display of warmth on either side. Since then no move has been made. "I do not anticloate." said J. B. Mar shall, Sr., director of the band, "that this is going to make any trouble in the band. I do not think the matter will again come up until after we have fin ished our summer concerts, when if does arise I fancy it will be given ovar to the union members of the organiza tion for decision. I do not know what they will see fit to do for I have not had an opportunity to talk with my men. but one thing I am sure of is that the band will act as a unit. There will be no division on what those who decide about the action see fit to do." Mr. Marshall explained that for some years there had been a union among the members of the band who played in an orchestra. .This action was taken be cause in times past there was such keen competition between the orchestras of the city that an understanding regard ing the price to be charged for services became imperative in order that any one might get compensation. That has been in effect since and it is under that head that the 21 orchestra men who are members of the band are included. Mr. Marshall also announces that it is the intention of the band to give a number of Sunday afternoon concerts in the Auditorium, if that building be available, during the winter. He be lieves that there are many people in Topeka lovers of good band music who can ill afford to pay even a small ad mission fee to a concert, and it is his desire to make them free to all. A large quantity of new music is betas pur chased by the organization and this is to be taken us at once. RETENUE FROM JOINTS. Kansas City, Kas., Receives $5,000 month from the Saloons. Kansas City, Kan., Sept. 8 The joints are one of the greatest sources of reve nue to this city. One hundred of them pay in fines to the city each month, an amount aggregating $5,000. From the slot machines, most of which are own ed by saloon men, the city collects in fines about $1,000 per month. A saloon man is fined according to the number of slot machines in his place. The kind of machines, also has something' to do with the amount of fine, the city com pelling operators to pay a greater fine for a nickel machine than the penny devices. The fines derived by the police de partmaent go to the city's general fund, but the money, indirectly, is used in paying the expenses of the police de partment. When saloons are allowed to run the policemen get their pay regular ly every month; when the saloons are closed they sometimes have to wait two or three months for their salaries. Sa loons have run openly here for the past ten years. When the metropolitan police law was abolished by Governor Leedy four years ago the Republicans controlled the city government here. R- L. Marshman, who was then mayor, established an open policy and the Joints were operated on the fine system. Once every two months the Joint keeper was arrested He furnished a bond of $100 and for feited it. This rule has been in effect ever since. In allowing the Joints to operate the Craddock administration, in the Kansas City, Kan., like the administration that preceded it, believes that it is the wish of a majority ef the people that the sa loons should be tolerated. Should the city administration, or the county ad ministration, for that matter, desire to do so it could close every joint in the town. A city ordinance makes it an offense to sell intoxicating liquors and a fine of from $100 to $500 is provided. A Jolntlst can be arrested every time he attempts to open his saloon and if he were he would soon quit business,, FJRED HIS SHIP. Admiral Killick Plays a Trick on the Germans. Cape Haytien, Hayti, Sept 8. The gunboat Crete-a-Pierrot, which was in the service of the Firminist party, has been sunk at the entrance of the harbor of Gonaives by the German gunboat Panther. The crew of the Crete-a-Pter-rot left her before she went down. Port-Au-Prince. Hayti, Sept. 8. Ger man gunboat Panther arrived here Sep tember 5 and received instructions from the German government to capture the Firminist gunboat Crete-a-Pierrot. She left immediately for Gonaives, the seat of the Firminist government. The Pan ther found the Crete-a-Pierrot in the harbor of Gonaives and the commander of the German gunboat informed Ad miral Killick on the Crete-a-Pierrot, that he must remove his crew and sur render his vessel in five minutes. Admiral Killick asked that this time be extended to fifteen minutes. This re quest was granted, on the condition that the arms and ammunition on board the Crete-a-Pierrot ' should be abandoned when her crew left her. The crew of the Crete-a-Pierrot lefl that vessel amid great disorder. At the end of fifteen minutes the Panther sent a small boat, carrying an officer and twenty sailors, who were to take pos session of the Firminist gunboat. When these men had arrived at a point about thirty yards from the Crete-a-Pierrot. flames were seen to break out on board of her. She had been fired by her crew before they left her. The Panther then fired on the Crete- a-Pierrot until she was completely im mersed. Thirty shots, all told, were fired. Berlin, Sept. 8. The marine ministry has given out the following official re port of the sinking of the Firminist gunboat Crete-a-Pierrot: Capt. Eckermann. of the Panther had received orders to capture the principal gunboat Crete-a-Pierrot. The Panther went from Port au Prince to Gonaives where it completely surprised the Crete-a-Pierret. The German commandant sent the following ultimatum: " 'Strike your colors within 15 min utes and disembark from your ship without undertaking any defensive measures whatever, otherwise an im mediate attack will follow." "The Panther had already cleared for action. The Crete-a-Pierrot hauled down her flag--within the alloted time and the crewdisembarked. The Panth er then intended to take the Crete-a-Pierrot in tow but an explosion of her aft powder magazine soon occurred, which was evidently effected by the Crete-a-Pierrot's crew. The explosion destroyed her stern and set the vessel on fire, rendering taking her in tow im possible, especially as further explosion followed. As this was regarded as a hostile act and as the guns afore were still in condition, the Panther's captain caused the forward magazine to be ex ploded through a cannonade. After this was exploded the Crete-a-Plerrot broke up and sank. . The admiral was on board with the rebels. - "Gonaives is in the hands of the reb els." -, London, Sept. 8. A few of the after noon papers in commenting on the sub ject, seem to anticipate that the sink ing of the Firminist gunboat Crete-a-Pierrot by the German gunboat Panth er at the entrance of Gonaives harbor may prove controversial. "So summary a revenjre for a breach of International courtesy," says the St. James Gazette, "is like breaking' the frailest butterfly on the largest wheel. Supposing the butterfly's big neighbor takes a hand in the game, matters may become most serious.- The Westminster Gazette, speculat ing on the matter holds that "'nothing In Monroeism prevents a big continen tal power from boxing the ears of a troublesome boy on the other hemis phere, so long as the big boy does- not proceed to eat or otherwise annex the small one." MUST HAVE RAW. ' No Other Way to Check Cholera in the Philippines. Han Francisco, Sept. 8. "A bountiful downpour of rain is the only remedy which will check the cholera epidemic in the Philippines." So said Capt. E. H. Southall. a surgeon in the United States army, .who has arrived . here . on . the transport Buford. Capt. Southall was for a time in charge of the cholera, hos pital in Manila. In speaking. of the epi demic Cast. Southall said: . "The Americans in the Philippines seem unable to cope with the-plague. Despite the rigorous methods used to suppress it the disease seems to spread and increase. When I left Manila the death rate was 90 a day. An equal number Is stricken with the disease dally. Of course there were a number of pueblos in the interior from which we never heard, and in these places the death rate was said to be enormous. It is very difficult to get correct figures of tne mortality due to tne cholera be cause of the fact that the natives hide the dead and try to keep knowledge ot the presence of the disease from the authorities. EX-SENATOR ROACH DEAD. He Was in the Senate From North i Dakota, For Six Tears. New York.SeptJ.-Wm. Nathaniel Roach, who was U. S. senator from North Dakota from 1893 to 1899, died here Sunday. .

" Wall Street, New York, Sept. 8 STOCKS Business was fairly active at the opening, but the market lacked a defin-", ite tone. Most of the international stocks were heavy, but their weakness was off set by support to the industrials and coal- p .writs higher and then reacted a point. Canadian Pacific scored the widest loss, of ihi points, but the changes otherwise were only slight fractions. Professional operators selected the vari ous metal stocks as bull leaders and bid them up materially all around on large transactions. Smelting made a rise of Z- points, while Amalgamated Copper Press ed Steel Car stocks and Republic Steel stocks, U. S. Refining and Reduction and Cast Iron Pipe gained 14j-2Vi points. In the " railroad list St. Paul and Missouri Pacific were bought heavily, the former rising 1' points. ' Canadian Pacific recovered its opening loss, while Baltimore and Ohio lost an initial rise of a point. The market generally showed considerable firmness, but the demand was largely contested. Dealings became reactionary on the an nouncement that the first rate for cnll money was 7 per cent,"the rate soon there- . after advancing to 8 per cent and causing realizing sales and some short selling. St. Paul, Amalgamated -Copper and some cf the specialties declined a point and pric". generally in the railroad quarter fell t the opening level. Pacific coast stocks wer active and in demand, the common risii. 3 points and the - second preferred V points. By noon Missouri Pacific advanct to 121 and there was a renewal of the heavy buying in Reading common, which carried it to 75. The balance of the list dirt not reflect the strength shown by the other stocks. ' The bond market was steady. The demand for St. Paul slackened and the traders took profits, causing a slight recession and affected other transcontinen tal stocks slightly. Missouri Pacific on the other hand continued to work upward un til it touched 122, with transactions of 1. 000 and 2,000 shares appearing frequently on the tape. Other Gould stocks became stronger in sympathy, especially the Wa bashes. The Erie stocks showed a little activity and were quoted a point higher all around. St. Paul was bought freely and rose to 192 on the. resumption of the last week's rumor of a coming increase in the dividend in the stock. Missouri Pacific also roe about 2 points and the coincident strength of these stocks revived the old story of a deal being on. There was very little of interest to the other prominent stocks, but the market's undertone was firm. Some of the usually active specialties were bid up vigorously, the gain reaching 2Mj points in Railway Spring Steel, 3 points in U. S. Rubber preferred and 6 points in Ann Arbor. , Range of Prices on Stock. Furnished - by J.' E. Gall, Commissions, Grain, Provisions, Cotton and Stocks. Office 110 West Sixth street. Telephone 436.
