4 CAtl BE CLOSED. State Board Will Be Appealed to in Bed well Case. Are to Be Asked to Abat the ' ASjlunj. Attorney W. F. Schoch, who bu been , retained to prosecute the - Rbynerson case against the Bedwejl private asy lum, Is preparing, papers jo file with th state board of charities, and correction, making grave charges' and containing evidence, to secure the revocation of the state license, if the institution has ver received a state license... Mr. Schoch is In correspondence with - Henry J. Allen, of Ottawa, chairman of the board of charities and correct tlbns, to learn whether or not the insti . tution has received a license from that board according to law to conduct a private asylum. In event It is learned that a license has never been granted, steps will be taken at once to have the proprietor prosecuted according to law by the county attorney. The law provides for a penalty of ten dollars .-. day for every day the institution la run in violation to the law. Attorney Schoch has been exhausting every means at his command to learn if the institution has been licensed or not. He has learned that, as stated in the State Journal last evening, the license, if one has ever been, granted, has not been filed with the county clerk of Shawnee county in accordance with the provisions of the state law. ' "From what I have already learned," laid Mr. Schoch, "I am convinced that there will be no difficulty in legally closing' up the institution. The law is very plain in this respect, and the evi dence which we will present to the state board cannot be disputed. The dis graceful treatment of an Id man, as old as Mr. Rbynerson, ' ia shameful. Such practices must be stopped, and we are determined that they shall be." This morning two physicians visited the home cf H. K. tioodell, near Tecumseh, for the purpose of examining Mr. Ryner fcon. who was taken from the Bedwell o.-iyluji Wednesday. Mr. Rynerson is being taken care of at the home of his grandson, A. J. Warren, at Tecumseh. It is believed they were sent by S. A. Bedwell. the proprietor of the institution at which the ageA patient was injured. They gave their names as Dr. G. W. El linper and Dr". 6.. A. Johnson. "When questioned aa to whether they Were sent by Mr. Bedwell or not," said Airs. H. K. Goodell. "they evaded an an swer and endeavored to give the impres sion that they were sent to make the ex amination at the order of the judge of the probate court.." It does not matter who sent the doctors. The condition and bruises of the old. man tell their own story. Probate Judge Fagan denies that he had any knowledge of the visit of the doctors to Tecumseh. "Thev were not sent out to make an examination at the order of . xne court," ne saia. i naa no miorma . tlon that such an examination was to be made. No. J did not issue an order to that effect. Jacob Rynerson is resting easier today. He was very- low Thursday and Friday, but is sitting in a chair today and the members of iis family believe ha will re cover. " Dr. 5- A. Johnson was seen when he returned, but said that he was not at lib erty to talk farther than to say that the old man was resting easily, and, while he 1 very weak as the result of eld age, he , saw no reason wny ne snouia not recover. FINDS LOST DIAMOND. Denver Woumn Discovers Miss ing Jewel After 5 Years. ' Denver, Sept. 13 A diamond valued at $300 lay on the walk near Sixth and Coro na streets for five years, and was found it its owner. Mrs. Anna M. Scott, yester day. Hundreds of persons have passed the snot dailv. The dirt, rain and snow have been sifted upon it. But yesterday afternoon when Mrs. Scott walked down the lit rep t the diamond glittered as bright. ly on the walk as if it had just been drormed there. -. Just five vears ago this month Mrs. Scott attended a party given at Wolfe j. lace. When she returned to her home Fbe discovered to her dismay that one tit hpr diamond earrings was gone. The Ujnes were large, first water diamonds and tha loss of the earrina- was serious. She huited about the house, and then with a patty of friends she spent a day In sparchinir the hall. All the children in the neighborhood were offered rewards if they could find the Jewel, but in vain. .It was given up ror lost. The Scott horn; near the Harman C2T Jlne. It is also near me (jorona scnou For these reasons the walk is traversed ( Incessantly. Graders have been at work upon the street and in that way more traffic bus hfpn added. There Is no sidewalk. It has been the intention of the property owners to put down a side walk, but the work has not been begun. Here in the sandy earth the diamond fell and here for five years it had lain undis turbed. k "I was not looking for H," Mrs. Scott said, "but I was looking for a little ring that my daughter thought she had lost. As I could not lind the ring went over h ground rather carefully. Suddenly something sparkling caught my eye and then I cried right out loud, 'Why, there s my diamond.' I guess my neighbors must have thought something had happened. I was so surprised to see it that I could really hardly believe that I was awake, or that it was 1902 instead of 1897." RETURNS FROM THE EAST. Mrs. J. B. Bartholomew Talks About Her Experience. Mrs. John D. Bartholomew has re turned to her home in Topeka after four months devoted to the study of art in the east. She left Topeka the first of May and has been in Worcester, Mass., at the Chaffee studio, in Boston and New York. In Boston she had excep tional advantages in her studies owing to the fact that the Mrs. C. D. Warren collection of paintings was on exhibition at the Boston museum during the ab sence of the family abroad. This in cludes some of the finest pictures in any private . collection" in the United States and abounds In examples of British art, of which Mrs. Bartholomew has been making a special study . this summer. Mrs. Bartholomew devoted several weeks to the art galleries of New York, particularly the Vanderbilt collection, which contains so many orig inals representing the masterpieces of English art. Joshua Reynolds, Thomas Lawrence, Constable, Romney, Gains borough, of the golden age of portrait painting in England, Turner and Land peer, and the later painters, Alma Tadema, George Frederick Watts, Ros setti, Burne-Jones, Sir Frederick Leigh ton and Sir John Millais are all repre sented. ' It Is Mrs. Bartholomew's pur pose to continue her classes in art study which were so popular last winter, dur, ing the coming season, and much in terest is being taken in the matter by her former pupils and others. There is probably no more serious and thorough student of art in the state than Mrs. Bartholomew. All her life phe has been passionately devoted to it. Formerly merely for her own pleasure and without a thought of teaching it, but when the death of her husband two years ago left her in need Of some occupation, it happened quite naturally that she should put to practical us her knowledge of art and its history. Her first classes came to her unsought. ex we society young women ox Topeka having conceived the idea oi taking np the study of Italian -art, and knowing Mi Bartholomew's interest n the subject, seeking her direction in their studies, Jst winter sh bad tw ' large classes which met weekly lri' the Stone-Reid . studio in the Crawford building. , - , me success of trie venture encouragea her to continue these classes this winter, so she went east during the summer to prepare herself for a course of lectures on English -art. Mrs. Bartholomew believes this, the elose of the Victorian era, to be an especially opportune time to review the progress of painting, sculpture and archi tecture in the British isles from the begin ning of pagan art to the present lime. She' has prepared a series of fourteen lectures which embrace the history of British art exhaustively. Mrs, Bartholomew is a lec turer of unusual ability. She combines with a thorough knowledge of -her subject a charming personality and agreeable pres ence and her talks reveal her vide reading and broad mental culture, are rich in lit erary and historical allusion and have tha delightful quality of intimate conversa tions rather than the impersonal aloofness of the usual lecture. She lives in a charm ing house, crowded with books and pic tures and rare pottery and exquisite Orien. tal rugs and draperies' and has had these advantages of environment and education which fit te especially for the Una -of work she has undertaken. More tha that she is an industrious and persevering stu dent and haM always been. At the Chaffee studio in Worcester this summer they told her that she -had avgenlus for study."" "Well, if I have," said Mrs. Bartholomew In repeating .the remark, "it is because I have always studied. I Wouldn't have be gun it now if I hadn't, and couldn't have taken up this work without the prepara tion, which I undertook purely in a spirit of dilettanteism and without any thought of making a professional use of it." HE LOST HIS CASH. Young Ray Price, of Halifax, FJeeced Oat of $30. " An ancient skin-game was worked successfully this morning by two smooth strangers on Ray Price, a young farmer from Halifax, Wabaunsee county, Kan sas. Young Price came in on a Rock Island train from the west. He was go ing to Kansas City, and while waiting for the train to move on, he got into a conversation with a stranger, : who seemed to be' a passenger on the same train. As they "meandered" around the. depot platform the stranger said, "Did you ever see that sand dipper at work?" indicating the Wear company's machine above city park. Price said that he had never seenva machine dip sand from the raging Kaw, and they went over. The stranger explained the mechanism of the dipper, and they started to retlirn. While yet in- the park they were met by a man wearing a star. He accosted the stranger and said: "You are a jail breaker who has been out nearly a year, but I know -you. Surrender." The stranger hastily surrendered. "Now, then,'1 said the alleged officer, "come wits me to the cooler, you coma, too, young man." "But I don't know the man," answer ed Price, -."That has nothing to do with the case. tra-la," remarked the fake copper with a joyous smile. "You will have to be locked up, too, until this roan Is tried." Price expostulated. "Well," said the person with the star. if you have money enough you can give bond to be at the station at 4 o'clock."' Price asked him how much it would take, and the man behind the star answered by asking ," him how much he had. "Thirty dollars," replied iflce. "That will be enough," said the police imitator. Price dug up three tens, and was allowed to go. He watched the "officer" and his "prisoner" start for the station,: and was surprised to see them separate and walk swiftly away. Then It began to dawn on him that he was easy. He is now confident of it. The police are trying to find the grafters Dut nave a poor description to work on although it was done in broad daylight.

Chicago, Sept. 13. Alleged victims of trade combinations witn Headquarters in Chicago have begun a campaign against such organisations and U. -a. District Attorney Bethea has told them that if they will furnish the evidence he will take the cases into the courts. The complaints are made against the elec trical supplies company, the - Master Plumbers' association and the American Tobacce company. Attorney Bethea promises that he will take - up the charges, incorporate them In a bill for injunction under the Sherman law and forward the documents to Attorney General Knox for approval. He insists, however, that in such cases the victims so-called shall justify their complaints witn Bometning tangible. Hob Attacked the Hebrews.. Vienna, Sept. IS.

Chicago. Sept. 13. Judge Chytraus' decision la the "July oats corner" Injunc tion cases is imoortant and far reach ing. Not onlv does the ooinion of the court, if sustained by higher tribunals, put an end to ail corners in commo dities on the exchange,, but it strikes at the very life of the institution aa now organised. . The directors for all time have had their powers curtailed that they ' cannot longer aujudicate upon property rights of the- members of tne association. Judge Chytraus goes even farther and says that under the char ter of the board of trade ' there is no provision for succession of membership and asks the pertinent Question, "What should become of the corporation when persons now composing the original poara would be dead r- jrne case in Question was one prougnt by the commission -flrm of - Waits. Thorburn & Co.. against the Chicago board of. trade, the Bank of Montreal and several prominent- members of the board of trade in which a temporary Injunction was granted to prevent mar gins that were' put up by the complain ants from being handed down to the contracting defendants. The claim was mads that the defendants bad run a corner in July "standard" oats. The complainants who. had sold "snort to the defendants, while not denying their contracts and while declaring .their purpose to make good these same con tracts made protest against having the case adjudicated by the board of trade is . provided by the bylaws of the as sociation, The "standards' oats ai ques tion was of a grade and fineness almost impossible to obtain In sufficient quan tity to fill contracts during July because of delay to crops by rainy 'weather. In the pit on 'change highly fictitious prices had been nut on this commodity and the complainants asked the court to set a fair price between which price and the one at which thev had con tracted the difference might be paid. This was filed July 30 ene day . before settlements were required. Shortly af ter this 23 other cases were filed by the same complainants against various de fendants, lu cases by Pratt. Buckley et Co.; six cases by H. C. Avery Sc. Co., and one case by J. Henry Norton. By com mon consent all cases are affected by the same ruling. The court said in ruling that as far aa the merits of the case were con cerned it did not matter whether there was a corner, for it was taken for granted that an honest price was in tended. Tfils part of the matter can be decided at a further hearing which will be had. The decision makes the Injunc tion in force until this hearing of facts is had.. The losing parties nave ap pealed, but this does not prevent fur- iner Bearing. The gist of the decision is that a soe- cial committee which.- according to the Doara rules, snouid be annotated by the president to adjudicate such differences, has no authority to act in matters where property rights are involved. The rights of the directors of the board to preserve tne integrity of its rules so iar as disciplining members is con. cerned by fine, suspension or expulsiou is upheld by the court as their proper ngnts, Dut ne rules against the quee uuu max against tne will or tne com plainants the power of disposal over tnat money wnicn in a sense has been placed in trust or escrow, exists in s select committee of three disinterested persons, members of the association, to ue appointed by the president; i e.. where the money can be appropriated by such a committee to the contracting Regardless of the fact that the ram plainants agreed to be bound by the rules which provide for settlements of disagreements, the court rules that thev were not bound; that the arrogating of bui-u power to sucn a txxly was against public policy, and "that it would be introducing sovereignties within a sov ereignty for the function of construing the law." The court goes into great detail to learn the merits of the case, speaks at some length of the operations upon the board of trade, of the benefits to the community from the institution and the great influence It exerts upon the com merce of the world. It holds that as a corporation not for profit it possesses governmental and discinlinarv nnwera over the members that are not possessed biuck corporations wnere money or property rights, are directly involved. The general power to pass upon the ngni oi property 'tn the margins in question, however, is held a tudintnl power, which never can be considered to nave neen delegated or confirmed by dubious implication. "The ordinary courts of Justice,"' said the court, "constituting one of the branches of our government, ought not to be and should not submit to beintf excluded or ousted of jurisdiction by in- wnumenL ... . - With some sarcasm tli rnr mAa "The masterly ingenuity of the plan contrived to prevent atDeal to the com. mon law courts of the state commands our admiration.

BARNES, Secretary. OttQ tVTK OF TRADE Seems to Be Limited Paly by of Transportation Vacuities, Nsw Tor. Sept, 13- B. ' Q- P Co.'s weekly review of trade says: "Industrial activity Is greater than at any recent date. Many new factories and mills have been added to tne pro. ductlve capacity, facilities are being In creased at old plants and idle shops re sumed through the settlement of labor controversies. A coke blockade still ex ists, the railways being unable to ban die the output, which is above all rec ords and in urgent request. Despite the rapid development of transportation facilities, the nation's needs have grown still faster, and the situation is dis tressing for shippers ana consumers. Xarge crops are being harvested and the greater abundance of food stuffs caused a decline in prices of commodities dur iiiE AuEiist of s 5 tier cent, as measured by Dun's index number. Retail trade is large, with a bright utlooK tor tne tu ture in jobbing and wholesale business. There are few of the cancellations so numerous at this time last year, while collections are Improving. An advance of 82.9 per cent in bank exchanges et New York over the same week last year can not be explained by speculation, as dealings In stocks were also heavy in 1901. Railway earnings In August ex ceeded last year's by 4.2 per cent and those or J900 by is-i per cent. "Although the weekly capacity of pig iron furnaees In blast on September 1 was reported as 835.193 tons by the Iron Age, it has since been appreciably cur tailed by the inadequate supply of fuel, on which account numerous furnaces were blown out, or at least banked, as consumptive requirements are increas ing it is necessary to place orders abroad more extensively, and in some cases the entire output of foreign plants has been secured. Not only raw ma terial, but billets and even rails are sought in other markets, German mills offered the best terms in most cases. Heavy importations have prevented fur ther advance in quotations, but domes tic producers have a steady market for their output, contracts still running far Into the future. Railways are in great need of new locomotives and other equipment. - VNew England producers of boots and shoes are Insisting on full prices. and some grades that were alow to respond are now snaring tne improve ment. No sign' of weakness Is seen In leather, some selections rising still more, particularly the better grades of sole and belting butts. Slight reactions have occurred in some packer and country hides, but most lines are still firmly held. IJberal receipts have not depressed foreign dry hides. Textile mills are well occupied, with prices sus tained in all cases, and moderate ad vances in some cotton goods which are in demand for quick delivery. " With the completion of early orders there has come a quiet market for woolens and worsteds, but mills have large contracts on hand. "Low stocks of wheat and poor grad ing of receipts, together with fears of frost in corn sections, sustained quota tions when a decline would have been imminent if full confidence were placed in omciai returns of condition. "Failures for the week numbered 805 In the United States against 193 last year and 22 in Canada against 18 a year as-o." . Bradstreet's says: "Taken as a whole fall trade Is still expanding in volume because western and northwestern markets report una bated activity.- Eastern jobbing is as active as heretofore and the south re ports more doing at nearly all centers. Frost held off - until the elose of the week,'. when, arsuare was ..worked up. Any deterioration now. however, can only be as to quafitty, because the crop seems secure as to quantity. Industry is active and except in the eastern shoe manuracturing' trade, the nara coal re gion and' iron ifurnace work, the lattei because of the coke shortage, present outputs equal and In most cases exceed records. Despite the fact that the new crops are only moving in small volume and. the usual activity in anthracite is absent, the pinch of the ear shortage is steadily growing. That the trouble is not entirely one of too few cars seems evident from the heavy orders for loco motives given by the leading railroad lines. Scarcity of help Is noted in th south for picking cotton and at the north in public works. Wage advances are not entirely absent, and there is talk of a general movement for better compensation on western railroads. Collections are - uniformly satisfactory except at the south, but even there im provement is noted at various points, due to the increased movement of cot ton. ' "One fact brought out in the reports as to activity . in dry goods, clothing, shoes, millinery and groceries Is the very general demand for a lighter class of goods which manifests itself. Retail trade the country over also seems bet ter, stimulated partly by colder weath er. From a number of cities com plaints come from distributors that manufacturers are behind on orders. "The corn crop made -satisfactory progress toward maturity until Friday, when general frost was reported, with out, however, much effect on prices. Al together government and private ad vices aa to crops of cereals, fruits and tooacco are quite encouraging for a large yield. The quality of oats will be below the standard, owing to the wet weather in harvesting and much win ter wheat is below grade. The reduced movement of hogs to market Is appar ently based upon fewer animals on tha farm. Rice yields will be liberal in the south, and sugar cane is making good progress. Dry weather will reduce the crop of citrus fruits In Florida. "Another notable feature is the gen eral strength exhibited by prices. The smallest stock of wheat supplies since 1896 is indicated both here and abroad. Export business in wheat was large early In the week, and the tendency of this branch of business to expand at slight concessions . is notable. Cotton goods are firmer, as much because of the steady insistent demand aa because of the . strength of the raw material, which closes 1-16 c below last week. "The situation in wool and woolen goods is very favorable to sellers. The strength in hides, is the keynote to the learner ana snoe marKets. jtfuuaing material is active, and lumber leads In aggressive strength. A feature In keeping with the advancing season Is the higher range of farm produce. Eggs are higher and butter Is advancing on larger consumption and reported ma nipulation by cold storage interests. - "The shortage of fuel still exasperates the iron trade, which sees the foreign flood of iron and steel growing steadily. The July import - is probably not far from 100,000 tons. The use of large num bers of cars to carry soft coal to the anthracite regions aggravates the short age of coke in the Pittsburg district But the same complaints come from Chicago and St - Louis. Rails - and structural material are still the promi nent features. Western mills will, however, only acceDt rail orders for de, livery in the last quarter of 1893. Pitts burg reports 10,000 to 15,000 tons of for eign Bessemer pig iron coming - in monthly to that district. German bil lets and foundry Iron are renorted to have made large sales to soutnwestern roads. The trade In wire is improving, but tin plates are dull. Hardware is in excellent demand at all points, and. In fact, anything with iron. in It finds ready sale. Among the other metals, tin is weaker, but copper is stronger , In tone than last year. ciiunciHiom Westminster Presbyterian church. College avenue and Huntoon street.
