TOPEKA STATE JOURNAX, WEDNESDAY EVENING. SEPTEMBER lO.lCCa
POLICEJOTTHIGS. Joe Diamond Has a Little Un expected Trouble. Fined $10 Which a "Friend' Obligingly Pays. PIGG AGAIN ARRESTED This Time He Spends Night In Jail. Kot an Indian Has Been Arrest ed by Police. Joe Diamond, the exclusive Jewelry of Marie Wade, is a black diamond of no particular value who was fined ten this morning for disturbing the peace. Joe, in a moment of absent mindedness, so forgot himself aa to smite his inamorata on the maxillary. It was during a fam ily Jar, which Jarred sweet Marie con siderably. Just to ehow him that she was a good Indian, and had a pull with the police, Mary had Joe pinched maybe. At any rate Joe was pinched. Mary relented when it was too late, but abe paid Jodie'a fine, which was very nice of Mary. Messrs. Pigg and Pigg, for whom the force has been laying for some time, were once again grabulated last even ing, together with a cold keg. Ransome, the younger member of the firm, was incarcerated, while his brother went out to seek a bond. He found the bond in a few minutes, but it seems to have taken all night to find Judge Magaw and have the same approved, for the 1 u s younger Mr. Pigg was kept in durance vile through the long dark night. He was released this morning, but the keg is still a guest of the department. The Pigg brothers have been wroth for some time, naturally. They are more so today, and have passed out dark hints of Impeachments to come. The mayor, the police Judge and the chief sat in tar session this morning, but none of them wore a troubled look. They look ed light hearted and gay, and seemed to be enjoying life and the excellent brand of weather now on tap. Mrs. Margaret Fritts and her ex-husband were gathered last evening and charged with being drunk and disorder ly. It is quite possible that the one-time head of the family is responsible for the trouble and he has refused to recognize the fact that his partnership with the other defendant has been severed and dissolved by a decree of court He con tinues to seek her company, notwith standing her frequent objections. They will have a hearing this evening. Mr. Jack Patterson, who claims no re lationship with the late William Patter son, deceased, was struck for three plunks this morning on a drunk charge. R. Quick followed suit right quick. Mr. J. B. Jones was also moderately full, say the police. The wild red man of the forest and Pottawatomie reserve should be given credit for his good sense, for he has stayed away from the grand fete Champetra-pootra in great numbers. He probably saw the bills and thought it waa some new kind of breakfast food being extensively advertised. Not a single Indian has been arrested since the show began, a good sign that there are no Indians in town. PEOPLE IN EARNEST. Much Interest in Kansas-Colorado Water Suit. Attorney General Godard has returned from Arkansas City where he has been looking up facts which may be used a3 evidence in the suit of Kansas against Colorado in the United States court, involving the right to the water of the Arkansas river. "Those people down there are very much in earnest about this suit," said Mr. Godard. "They claim that their land is not nearly so productive in dry years since Colorado has been taking all the water out of the Arkansas. This year they, have good crops because it has been a wet year, but they claim that the value of the bottom lands along the Arkansas has been reduced 25 per cent because the water supply has been cut short. "In 1878 there was so much water in the river that a steamboat came up from Fort Smith as far as Arkansas City.

So it can be seen that naturally the river would have considerable water in it if it were not taken out in Colorado for irriga tion." Ex-Governor Charles S. Thomas, who has been employed by Colorado to assist in the defense of the suit in the United States supreme court, has Just notified. Attorney General Godard that Colorado will file its answer in the United States supreme court before the opening of the court about October 15. ' The issues will then be made up and! some one will be appointed by the su preme court to take the evidence in the case. BOOMS BAIKD'S WORK. Write-Up for Topeka Company in Railway Age, The current issue of the Railway Age devotes two columns of space with pic tures to the Baird Portable Machine company of Topeka, Kansas. This is the company that was recently organiz ed in this city to put on the market the machines invented and patented by A. M. Baird, formerly boiler shop foreman of the Santa Fe shops here. The company is formed through the partnership of John Lord, A. Hyman and A. M. Baird. The territory has been divided and sold to three prominent eastern firms who will act as distribut ing agents for the Baird Portable Ma chine company. For the present the machinery will be manufactured at one of the Topeka iron foundries but will later be built in a factory to be erected by this company at this point. The Baird company recently Issued a catalogue of the compressed air ma chines which are to be placed on the market by this firm. The compressed air machines are the invention of Mr. Baird, who introduced them in the Santa Fe shops. The Santa Fe railroad is the only railroad that at present has the compressed air machines in general use. The Baird company makes staybolt breakers and cutters, circular saws, painting machines, mud ring riveters, tank frame riveters, tank riveter and bridge and girder riveters, pneumatic wood boring motors, and a rotary tap ping and drilling machine. CORDIAL RELATIONS Between British and American Gener als in Germany. New York, Sept. 10. Most cordial re lations have been established between the British and American generals at tending the maneuvers of 90,000 German troops near Frankfort-on-Oder, cables the London correspondent of the Trt bune. Generals Toung and French nat urally interest each other aa cavalry leaders, and Lord Roberts and General Corbin are good companions, although not well matched in stature. Gen. Ham ilton, being an outsDoken and racy talker, also pleased the Americans. Gen erals Wood and Kelly-Kenny are prac tical men of fine ability as organizers. The British generals, being a field mar shal and lieutenant general, outrank the two American generals and Brig. Gen. Wood, and have precedence in pre sentations and court and court func tions. Gen. Corbin and the other Amer icans are particularly impressed with the ability of Count von Waldersee. The maneuvers probably will confirm the Impressions Generals Corbin and Young formed at the preliminary parades, namely, that the superiority of the Ger man cavalry is due to the systematic arrangements for breeding horses for military purposes, and the German reg imental method of artillery organiza tion is workmanlike and tends to concentrate the fire of guns with overwhelming effect. The American generals, after giving a dinner to the German and British officers at the close of the maneuvers, will visit Vienna, Paris and London, and have a short run through Scotland. A CLERGYMAN'S ROMANCE. Rev. A. C. Willey Harries Woman from Whom He Was Estranged. Syracuse, Sept. 10. The marriage here today of Miss Ellen Esther Mor ton and the Rev. A. C. Willey of Ash land, in the Catskills, is the sequel to an interesting romance.

In 183a Mr. W illey married Miss Gazelle L Post of Motville. His love for Miss Morton, however, never died out. and the result was that he be came separated and finally divorced from his wife. He then sought out Miss Morton, a-.i after a short courtship they were iSarried. Mr. Willey was for merly an instructor in Drey Theological Seminary. He is a brother of the Rer. J. H. Willey of Brooklyn. LAND ON FRIARS ISLAND. American Sailors Disembark from the Iowa, New York, Sept. 10.

WILDER OBJECTS. Thinks Kansas Insnrance Re port Should Be Annual. D.W. Wilder, for arraj years super intendent of insurance of Kansas and now editor of the Insurance Magazine of Kansas City, makes a complaint about the present method of publish ing the reports of the state department of insurance, and there seems to be good grounds for bis objections. Formerly the report ot the superin tendent of insurance was published an nually, but the last legislature passed a special bill to make the report bi ennial. The report consists chiefly of I the annual statements of the companies wucn da business in Kansas, ana a i certain amount of matter has to be printed, and the expense is the same Whether it is Issued annually or only once in two years, and in the latter case half of the matter la out of date and has lost its value. Mr. .Wilder sa2: The Kansas insurance report is care fully prepared, well printed, contains l,CM pages, and is the biggest ever la- sued in its state. It covers two years. ana nan of it ought to nave been printed more than a year ago. Its sta tistics of chief importance were pub- nsnea in this magaxme a long time ago, and the bulky volume, with its oceans of figures, is almost an offense ana an annoyance. For this antiaulty. absurdity and uselessness Superintend ent unurcn is in nowise at fault, but the insurance companies that pay for tne preparation and tne printing of the volume, and the thousands of aeents in Kansas whose business and life work is insurance, are entitled to know the re sults of their labors, in- arabic numbers. at me end or every year. as useless as a last year s almanac" has long been a proverb expressive of disgust, but here we have, in August. 1902, hundreds of pages of statements made by companies in 1900, and requir ed by law to be reported to the insur ance department. Why? For the in formation of the public, the companies and the agency force? No: but to be laid aside until no one wants them: to be printed and circulated so many years afterwards as to have lost their interest and usefulness. "During the present month of Set- tember, 1902, the departments will send out blanks of annual statements for the companies to fill. It will take all the rest of this year, the whole of 1903 and the greater part of 1904 to get the print ed result back into the hands of tha companies that now write the copy. Many of the companies will then be re tired rrom tne state, and all will resent the injustice. It costs no more to print iresn tnan stale facts. "The companies paid to the depart ment in 1900, 130,2.92; the expenses of the department were $6,734.07; in 1901 the receipts were $139,909.96; expenses. j;i,087.70. A big profit xo the state. A gift of $254,691.11 to the state for .doing a business which the people of the state required and desired to Jive done, to remunerate tnem lor loss by fire, burg lary, breach of trust, accident and death a mode of indemnity demanded by all civilized peoples. The corpora tions pay this bonus, they were required to do it advance, on time, by a certain day, or lose their franchises and all of the benefits their work in past years had given them. In repute for integrity and solvency. "The state pockets the money, returns no tnanlcs and refuses to print any statement ot tne transaction as a mat ter of business refuses until the work has become ancient history; stale, flat and unprontaoie. How did ell this come about, in Kan sas and in a few other states? Is it pure cussedness or only a wrong that can be righted? In 1876 the sessions of the state legislature were changed from an nua to biennial by amending the con stitution. Since that time most of the reports made by state officers are pub lished once in two years. Agricultural reports are published several times each year, as they are needed; the reports of the three great institutions of learning are published every year, and would be rubbish if longer delayed. Various oth er matters of public Import, like su preme court reports, are published fre quently, as soon as the copy reaches the printer, althougn it makes three large volumes In a single year. To delay the work would be a public outrage. Insurance reports have also been pub lished annually until now, the last re port being dated June, 1900. It contain ed 472 pages and was sufficiently large. The present report, 1,064 pages, is 120 pages more than twice the size of the 1900 volume, without half its value. The tendency of all delays is to increase ex pense: not economy but extravagance is caused by this imposition upon the public Kansas has an executive counc'l that regulates matters of this kind. It is composed of the governor, secretary of state, auditor, treasurer, attorney general and superintendent of public instruction. We are making our speech to the new board that will be elected in November, and especially to Charles H. Luling, who will be elected superinten dent of insurance on the same ticket fla a majority of many thousands. He can begin to right this wrong during the campaign, and .before the votes are counted. The new executive council. headed by our neighbor and friend. Governor Bailey, will vote unanimously to follow the precedent of thirty years and save time and money by Eivinis public facts to the people when they are needed and while they are useful." RUSSIANS ABE ANGRY Owing to Lord Curzon's Approval of Railway Extensions. New York, Sept. 10. Russian news papers are extremely wroth at Lord Curzon's approval of the extension of the Indian railway system to Noshki. on the eastern boundary of Beloochis tan, cables the London correspondent of the Tribune. They foresee uninter rupted railway communication between India and Europe. Russia means to have an outlet in the Indian ocean, and this great railway, which would be in British and German nands, would stop the progress of Russia toward the south. A leading Journal of St. Peters burg says Russia must at once build a line through Persia right down to the Indian ocean, and thus paralyze the ambition of Great Britain. There is a general desire in England for some sort of understanding with Russia about Persia, in spite of Capt. Marian s warn ing that any concession on England's part will imperil her naval situation in the far east, her political position In India, her commercial interests in botn. and the imperial tie between herself and Australia, v Turners Swell the Strike Fund.
