TOPEKA STATE JOtTRNAT WEDNESDAY EVENING. OCTOBER 1 ,190ii.
IIEREJT IS. All About Weather from Got ernment Authority. Can Tell Whether W inter W ill Be a Hard One. RULES LAID DOWN. They Shed Much Light on the Future. What the Tarious Signs Now Tisible Indicate. Observer Jennings is busy assorting Ills brand of fall and winter weather and getting them on the shelves ready to fill orders. He has been studying the United States weather bureau book of riroverbs and he finds that according to he proverbs he can prove up on most tny style of weather at most any time. This book of proverbs is the only offi cial publication of the kind and it has been thoroughly tested by the experts before it was placed in the hands of the observers. Some of the proverbs re lating to October are as follows: "If we don't get our Indian summer In October or November we will get it In the winter." "A good nut year a good corn year." "As the wind and the weather is at the time of the equinox so will be the wind and weather generally during the following three months." "Early falling leaves indicate an early fall." "Much rain in October, much wind In December." "If October brings heavy frosts and winds, then will January and February be mild." "When it freezes and snows In Oc tober, January will bring mild weather; but if it is thundering and heat lighten ing, the winter will resemble April in temper. "Warm October, cold February." "As the weather is in October, so will It be the next March." "When a cold spell occurs In Septem ber and passes without a frost, a frost will not occur until the same time ir. October." "The month that comes in good will go out bad." "When birds and badgers are fat in October, a cold winter is expected." "A double husk on corn indicates a severe winter. "If corn is hard to husk expect a hard winter." "The whiteness of a goose's breast bone indicates the amount of snow dur ing the winter." "If domestic geese walk east and fly west, expect cold weather." These proverbs are double copper distilled and tested at all degrees of Fahrenheit. The first one, about In dian summer in October or November, is true. If that special, made to ordei Kansas summer does not arrive during those months it will positively have to arrive during .the winter if it arrives at all. This is a year when there are plenty of nuts, if you know where to find them, and there is plenty of corn. Score for that proverb. The wind and weather was good and bad during the equinox, and good and bad wind anil weather may be expected in October, November and December. Early falling leaves indicate an early fall. Good. True as gospel. The leaves, generally fall in the fall. The people will have to wait and see if there is much rain in October and then be pa tient until December to see if there is much wind. They will necessarily have to wait to see about the October weath er governing January, February and Msrch. September managed to struggle through with or without a frost, just as you please. Some people in some places say there was frost, and othei people in other places say there was not. John Curran says the Craddock meeting at the Auditorium in September was not a frost, and M. Albaugh says It was. There you are. October came in good, and must therefore go out bad, or the proverb will be slightly in error. There is only one badger in Shawnee county. He belongs to the Sells & Sterne circus, and he is fat. Therefore, a cold winter. Some corn husks are double and some are single. Take your choice. Corn ir hard to husk this fall. Everyone who has tried it says so. In fact, corn is always hard to husk. It is not exactly an amusement. Therefore the winter will be hard. If the first breast bona of a goose you examine does not an nounce the kind of weather you want, get another goose, cook it thoroughly, cat it all but the breast bone and then read the oracle. If at first you don't succeed, try, try another goose. Also, if the geese do not want to walk east, make them walk east. Shoo them with an apron or your hat. and if you get them to fly out of a hop, skip and a Jump, sell them to a museum for a wonder. These weather proverbs, and the rest In the book, are like laws. If the first citations you find do not suit you, hunt for those that do. You cannot fail to bs satisfied. Jennings has the book for anyone to refer to who wishes to settle a bet or decide the color of breast bones. Today's forecast, sent out by the gov ernment regardless of proverbs. is "Probably showers tonight or Thurs day." The wind this morning was poutheast, blowing eight miles an hour. The minimum temperature was 42. The hourly temperatures recorded hv tho government thermometer today were as louows: ; o'clock 43 11 o'clock 62 8 ociock 50 12 o'clock 6; 9 ociock 56 1 o'clock 6t iu ocicck 60 2 o'clock 6 SHAW EXPLAINS. Endeavors to Make Plain the Import of Recent Action. New York, Oct. 1. Secretary Shaw has given out the following statement: "The department is in receipt of a rge number of requests from various anks in the country, clearly showing hat the statement given out last night was misunderstood or rather that it was not carefully read. That there may be no misunderstanding the following statement is made. "No new deposits will be made on anv security otizr than government bonds so long as government bonds can be secured. For the present banks seem to be able to obtain, frequently by bor rowing, bonds other tar. 2 tier cent consols. Thev can obtain the use of these bonds for a limited period, and they are as desirable as any for securi ty for deposits. They are not as desir able as security for circulation, for the reason that circulation based thereon is taxable at 1 per cent, while circulation based on the 2 per cent consols is tax able at only one-half of 1 per cent. The banks can not obtain except by purchase any bonds as a basis for cir culation, because when deposited for circulation they can not be released un til their circulation is retired, and it may take a year before their circula tion can be retired, and the price of bonds is so high that bank circulation Is maintained at considerable loss to the banks. They must be encouraged, or circulation constantly contracts. There fore the department has decided to re lease, for such banks as have deposits and are not maintaining their limits of circulation, a portion of the bonds now held by the government, taking in lieu thereof other satisfactory security, on condition always that the bonds re leased will be used for the immeuiate issue of additional circulation. This provision does not apply to those banks that already have their maximum cir culation, neither does it apply to banks that do not have any deposits. The sole puroose of the offer is to increase circulation that is already printed and ready to be issued and by banks that already have the bonds on deposits. These deposits being scattered through out the entire country, the relief offer ed, it is believed, will be national rather than local for it applies to all sections of the country and to every state in the Union." That the secretary has intended all along that the relief should be general and for the west as well as for New York was shown by a remark he made in explaining of how the effect would be immediate in New York. He ex plained again how relieving the banks of the necessity of carrying reserve im mediately gave them the opportunity to extend credits to four times the reserve released. "You see." he continued, "your New York banks do not care anything for cash they do their business by means of credits. The loans and deposits are in the form of checks and bookkeeping, and all tbev want of cash is to main tain their reserves." "Then what is the use of increasing circulation?" was asked. " "Oh," replied the secretary Instantly, "your banks here do not do all the busi ness. When it comes' to the western banks when they want to make a loan for the purpose of paying for cattle or grain they have got to pay out the act ual currency. They don't do so much of their business on books. There is where the cash is needed and they call on the banks here for it." TURNED DOWN. (Continued from First Page.) that I want to call attention to the fact that Goodwin received the lowest vote on the ticket. Mr. Sheehan's party re ceived the second lowest and he does not contest. The Goodwin people are pretty nervy to appeal from the people's complete thrown down of them." After Mr. Devery had made this state ment several of the leading politicians took up his case and urged that the committee seat him and avoid trouble as well as the establishing of what might prove an unfortunate precedent. THIS SLATE. Almost up to the time set for the re assembling of the convention there was no change In the ticket proposed last night, which is as follows: For Governor Bird S. Coler, of Kings. Lieutenant Governor Charles N.. Bul ger. Oswego. Comptroller C. M. Heston, Ulster. Secretary of State Frank H. Mott. Chautauqua. Attorney General Jonn Cunnen, .Erie, Engineer Richard W. Herman, of Oneida. Treasurer D. J. Van Auken, Ontario. Judge Court of Appeals John C. Gray, New York. This is the ticket promulgated from the headquarters of Senator Hill. It was the result of long conference or state leaders in which Senator Hill and Hugh McLaughlin took a leading part. The announcement of this tentative ticket was received quietly by the throng in the hotel corridors, and later rumors were circulated that when it came before the convention It might not stand. The Kings county delegates, led by Senator McCarren, were promi nent in talking of prospective changes. Despite this the Hill people went se renely on making arrangements for the nomination and in fact, after the first conference Kings county absented itself. Senator Hill did not affrm or deny that the slate as given out by those In his room was absolutely that which the convention would finally nominate. One of the rumors which sprang up after the slate was announced was that Kings county was preparing a bolt, and that several of the delegates would re fuse to abide by the Coler decision or vote in the unit system. Senator Mc Carren in answering this said: "It is useless to try and disguise the fact that several members of our dele gation are not heartily in favor of Mr. Coler. We still believe that Judge Par ker would accept the nomination if con fronted with the fact that the conven tion wanted him by acclamation. Still I don't think we will break the unit rule." FOR EVANS' FUNERAL. Ottawa Football Player Kurt in To peka Gets Flowers. The Ottawa Republic says: Late Sunday evening there walked Into the Fowler restaurant the stalwart figure of Captain Jack Evans, the doughty hero of many gridiron conflicts. Jack had just got in from Topeka by a round-about way. He bore no evidence of the injuries he re ceived in the game with the Topeka Med ics Saturday which put him out of the last half of the game. Captain Evans bore several bunches of choice cut flowers. "What the dickens?" mildly interrogated one of Jack's friends who was standing by, as he looked at the flowers. "For my funeral," was the laconic reply accompanied by a broad smile. It was a fact. The flowers were not a feminine tribute to his prowess on the gridiron, but were intended to decorate the casket in which the recipient was sup posed to repose. Evans was badly hurt in the football game. Caldwell of the Medics butted him over the heart and he was out of the re mainder of the game. Sunday morning it was announced from one of the Topeka pulpits that Evans had passed to the shin ing shore. But he had not. While the conercgation was weeping over another victim of the brutality of football the vic tim was lving in his bed at the National hotel reading tne sporting news in tne morning papers. Then the flowers arrived for the tunerai ana jacit leu ior nome. Catholic Total Abstinence Union. New York, Oct. 1. Members of the board of government of the Catholic Total Abstinence Union of America, at a meeting here have mapped out a cam paign in the interests of temperance. It was agreed to cut up the national union into six districts, comprising almost ev ery state in the union, with an executive member at the head of each section. A general appeal will be made to hier archy and clergy of the United States in behalf of total abstinence. Lecture bureaus will be established and a new body to be known as the National Com mittee will be selected from the most prominent temperance workers of the church. Still on the Rocks. Yokohama. Oct 1. The Japanese battle ship Shikishima. which was driven ashore at lokosuKa during tne typhoon of Alon day. is still on the rocks. Operations for refloating her are proceeding. The erni mates of the number of people who iost their lives when tne tidal wave, wnicn ac compar.iod the typhoon, swept over the Odawara district, r.rar Yokohama, were exaggerated. It is probable that not more than sjJ persons were drowned. Diphtheria sore throat, croup. Instant relief, permanent cure- Dr. Thomas" Eclectrlc Oil. At any drug store. TRAIN TWO i MILES LONG. The Commissary Department of the Blue Army Vigorously Attacked on the Fort Riley Reservation. THE ATTACKING ARMY Consisted of Infantry, Cavalry and Artillery. Col Kaspopoff, of the Russian Service, in the Fight. Fort Riley, Kas., Oct. 1. Attack and defense of a convoy was the war prob lem worked out In the maneuvers to day. A Blue army operating southwest from Salina, Kas., with headquarters at that point, was supposed to receive its supplies from Topeka as a base. The railroads were assumed to be broken up and supply by wagon train rendered necessary. COL. GEORGE B. RODNEY, In Command of Artillery Forces. A raiding force from the Brown army was placed in the position which it would have occupied had It circled around the front of the Blue army, at which point its commander learned of the approach of the wagon train. He at once attacked on the Fort Riley res ervation with the purpose of inflicting as much damage as possible upon the train. The approach of the attacking force was known to the commander of the Blue army, and finding that the direct road to Fort Riley, after crossing Three Mile creek on the reservation, was im passable, proceeded along the ridge road. No choice of routes was left him, although he knew the enemy was In front. The train consisted of all the wagons that could be secured at Fort Riley, and when drawn out on the lipe of march extended over two miles in a di rect line. In order to make the train as large as possible all the caissons of the batteries not in the exercises were in cluded. The army of the Blues in the maneu ver today consisted of the Sixth in fantry. Twenty-second Infantry. Sev enth battery of field artillery.and troops A and K of the Fourth cavalrv. The Browns were made up of troops C, D, E. F, G and H of the Fourth cav alry, the first squadron of the Eighth cavalry and one platoon of the Eighth battery. The men marched out from the camp at 8 in the morning and were at their posts prepared to commence the man euvers at S o'clock. The wather was fine and the attack and defense were of the most spirited character. Assistant Secretary of War Sanger and Acting Adjutant General Carter rode with Gen, Hates as did Col. Ras popoff, the Russian attache. ' The latter was in the thick of everything he could get near, and enjoyed the work hugely. HE WAS JOHN LEHR. Body ofMan Found at Parsons Iden tified as M. X. & T. Fireman. Parsons, Oct. 1. The body of John Lehr, a well known M, K. & T. fireman, was found in the fair grounds last Sat urday afternoon. The body was first supposed to be that of M. M. Jacobs, and both Coroner Smith and County At torney Hyatt were undecided as to the identity of the man until 11:30 o'clock Saturday night. From the testimony introduced at the coroner's Inquest yesterday afternoon, a chain of circumstantial evidence was es tablished from the time Lehr arrived in Parsons from his run on the Joplin branch of the M. K. & T. until his un timely end at the fair grounds. The testimony- introduced seems to show that Lehr either on Tuesday or Wednesday, September 23 or 24, after finishing his run went to the St. Clair restaurant on Johnson avenue for lunch He had a talk with the proprietor, who asked him if he was going out on his run, and was Informed that he (Lehr) dldn t care whether he went out or not. St. Clair advised him to go out on hia run, and Lehr left the restaurant. From the St. Clair restaurant Lehr was traced to Doughman & Rusts' hardware store. where he purchased the revolver with which he is supposed to have taken his own life. ANOTHER DURAND NAMED. Michigan Democrats Fill Vacancy on State Ticket Detroit. Mich., Oct. 1. After an ani mated discussion lasting nearly three hours the Democratic state central com mittee selected L. T. Durand, of Sagi naw, as the party s candidate for gov ernor. The new nomination was made necessary by the withdrawal of George H. Durand. of Flint, a brother of the nominee. Judge Durand was strickeii with paralysis five weeks ago, and his condition has remained such that all thought of his going through a campaign or filling the office of governor had tu be abandoned. The fight lay between the gold Dem ocrats who favored L. T. Durand, and the silver Democrats who wanted to nominate State Senator J. W. Helme, of Adrian. Charles Stigh. cf Grand Rapids, or some other Democrat who had come out as a silver man in 1896. Helme'a friends stood by his declaration, that the state convention should be recon vened to fill Judge Durand's place on the ticket, and as he had declared that he would not accept a nomination at the hands of a committee, his name was not presented. On the second formal ballot the committee stood 14 for Durand and 10 for Stigh, the nomination of Durand being made thereafter unanimous. Kansas City and Return $2.00 via Santa Fe.

We impose no conditions upon Mr. Kelly, all we ask being that the Topeka and Kansas City " papers publish such report as this committee might make. , All are honorable men, who have the unbounded confidence of the people of Kansas, and their verdict would carry conviction." Only three of the men named in this list have said anything against Kelly. The three are W. A. White. Henry Al len, and John S. Gilmore. These three, too, have deplored the fact that the evi dence seemed to be against Kelly and have expressed themselves as anxious that he should clear himself If it is pos sible for him to do so. Surely If there is a thine in hit record at all in his favor, he can point it out to these men and they will report it to the Republi cans of Kansas. Why, then, does he not accept Mr. Greason's proposition and not only get the thousand dollars but settle once and for all the fight against him? Notwithstanding the widespread opinion that the Republicans will have an easy time in most respects at the coming election, some of the fusion lead ers think that they have the Republi cans already beaten. They reallv be lieve that the Republican state ticket will be defeated by a good majority. "I am confident that Craddock will be elected by a good majority,"! said J. M. Senter, chairman of the fusion speakers' bureau, today. "The taxation issue is working wonders among the voters of the state. The fusionists are having good meetings nearly everywhere and the Republicans are coming out to hear what sort of an argument the fusion ists are putting up. As a result after nearly every meeting there are Repub lican voters who say they will vote for Craddock. "The question of taxation is a matter of dollars and cents to the voters of the state. Craddock tells the voters that if they will elect the fusion state ticket he will cut down their taxes one-half. Bailey says it can't be done. Craddock tells how he will do it by compelling the corporations to pay their share that they have been escaping in the past, and he produces the figures to prove his points. As a result a good many Re publicans are coming to be in favor of giving him a chance to show whether he can do it or not. If he can do it tev want it done. Anyway they think this is an off year, and they will just give him a chance to try. I know the voters are coming our way from the corre spondence which I receive here at my desk. I think Bailey himself is getting scared. It's a matter of dollars and cents to the voters and if Craddock can do what he says he will they want to give him a chance to do it. We have evidences right along of voters coming over to the fusion ticket, and that is wny i peiieve the fusion ticket will be elected." The following editorial appears in the Lawrence Journal: "There is a rumor to the effect that Candidate Craddock will withdraw from the race for governor, and ask tne committee to put some one in his place. He ought to do that. If the charges against him are true, and they appear to be. he owes it to the honest voters of his party to withdraw, and let a man be substituted who has a clean record, and whose garments do not smell of corruption. Of course Mr. Craddock can not ' be elected if he re mains on the ticKet. but the party he represents is entitled to have a candi date for whom members of the party can vote conscientiously." Why doesn't the, editor of the Journal publish a similar editorial substituting the word "Kelly" for "Craddock." and "state treasurer" for "governor?" Just read the editorial amended in that way and see how it sounds. Judge W. I. Stuart will have no op ponent in the Doniphan-Brown-Nemaha judicial district in,fthe coming election. ine state election Doara last evening ruled that A. R. May, for whom nomi nation papers had. been filed as the Democratic candidate. Was not properly nominated, and his name will not ap pear on the official ballot. Papers were filed with the secretary of state, declaring that A. R. May, of Hiawatha, was duly nominated for Judge by a mass convention held at Hi awatha cn September 22. The nomina tion papers were signed by John White as chairman and G. W. Duerson as sec retary. Judge Stuart protested the nom- nation, allecmg that no such conven tion had been called, that no legal no; tice of such a Convention had ever been published, and that no one appeared to know anything about it. In effect he claimed that the nomination papers were fraudulent. Mr. May was formallv notified that Judge Stuart had protested against iiis nomination papers, hut no one appeared to defend htm when the election board met yesterday afternoon. A deposition of Clydo McManigal. editor of the Marion Commer cial, and the fusion candidate for repre sentative in the south district of Brown county, was read in which Mr. McManigal testified that he was elected secretary of the Democratic judicial committee four years ago, but tnat the committee had never had a meeting since its organization: that it has never called a Democratic ju dicial convention: that no notice ot any mass convention for the purpose of nom inating a Democratic candidate for judge has ver been published, and that he did not know a candidate had been nominated until he was Summoned to testify about it. An affidavit by Albert Perry, chairman of the Democratic judicial committee, cov ered much the same ground and other af fidavits covered minor points. It was also stated that no convention of any sort a3 held in the court house in Hiawatha on the day that May was said to have been nominated there by mass convention. The election board decided that the evi dence was all one way in the ca3e and that as no one except the judicial committee had a right to call a Judicial convention, Mr. May had not been nominated by a properly constituted Democratic conven tion, and nis name wm tnereiore not ap pear on the official ballot as the Democrat ic nominee. It was immaterial to Judge Stuart whether there was a Democratic nominee or not. as he has something like 2.000 Re publican majority for him in the district, anyway. Leavenworth people who were look ing for a big row in the Republican county convention over there yesterday were disappointed. It was the tamest kind of a proceeding. It had been pre dicted that the Curtis crowd, which was in control of the convention, would try to unseat Colonel D.'R. Anthony and his delegation. Colonel Anthony published a six line "defi" in his paper yesterday morning and dared his enemies to try It. They didn't take the dare. Colonel An thony sat in his seat as a delegate dur ing the entire convention waiting- for hostilities to begi,n, but the Curtis crewd carefully avoided making a breach, and the convention passed off quietly. The Curl's candidates for the legislature were nominated in all three districts and instructed for Curtis. The resolutions also declare for Roosevelt's nomination in 1904 and endorse the ad ministration of Governor Stanley. The leigslative candidates are H. W. Wol cott, manager of the Leavenworth Kansas City electric railway; John Hund and George Hallenbeck. It is said that Hund will be for Long for second choice, and Hallenbeck will be for Stanley after Curtis. The bal ance of the county ticket is as follows: Sheriff, W. H. Courtney; treasurer, John M. Corey; county, clerk, C. W. Keiser; clerk of district court, Frank Evan; county attorney. Harry Michael; probate judge, W. H. Bond; register of deeds, Carl Delis; county commissioner. J. H. Jeffries; coroner, C. C: Smith; surveyor, H. C. Perkins; superintendent of public instruction, J. M. Giiman. 1 The challenge Issued by the. fusionists for a joint debate between their candidate for coneressman-at-larere. J. D. Botkin, and the Republican candidate. Congressman naries Scott, Has Deen acceptea Dy tne Republicans and two debates have been arranged for. One will be held at Salina next Monday, October 4, the same date as the Bailey-Craddock debate at Wichita, and the other at Fort Scott on October 14. These dates may be changed, provided the local committee can not arrange for them on the dates provided. D. J. Hanr.a. Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, says he has no doubt but what Congressman Reeder will be elected, notwithstanding the fusion of the Populists and Democrats against him this year. "Reeder is one of the best mjxers in the state of Kansas," said Mr. Hanna. "When he strikes a town he does not sit around a hotel and wait for people to come to him. but he gets out and is talk ing to his constituents and shaking hands with them right away. He is ahead even of Curtis and Stanley when it comes to anything of that sort. As a consequence he is making lot3 of votes which he would not otherwise get." Hanna and Bailey left yesterday afternoon for Wamego and Junction City. TODAY'S MARKET REPORT. Chicago. Oct. 1. WHEAT Firm cables and smaller receipts caused a strong open ing in wheat today. There was a good scattered demand with some buying shortB. Dect mber opened a shade to Sc higher, at 6Stf)8c, advanced steadily during the first half hour until the prices had reached c. The poor grading appeared to influ ence traders who are beginning to fear there will be a shortage of contract stuff. Minneapolis and Duluth reported receipts of 72S cars which, with local receipts of 179 cars, with only 20 cars grading, made total receipts for the three points o( 904 cars, against 9S5 cars last week and 918 cars a year azo. The early strength continued throughout the session. December closed e higher, at SeST4c. .' CORN Corn opened strong and higher, influenced mainly by small receipts and unfavorable weather. There was a good trade, with the local sentiment incllped to be bullish. Commission houses bought freely. December opened a shade lower to iHc higher, at 45fr46c. A good demand .soon carried the price to I6c, Local re ceipts were S9 cars, 15 cars of contract grade. The market continued strong with good commission house buying. December closed lc higher, at 47'g47c, after a high point of 47c. OATS In sympathy with the strength shown in other grains and on a decreased movement, oats opened firm, but grading was light. December opened a shade higher, at 3(c. and advanced steadily from the opening until 31c was touched. Local receipts were 131 cars. PROVISIONS Provisions were weak again, due to lower prices of hogs at the stock varda. Trading on the whole was dull, but a fair demand for October lard was manifested. January pork opened 7c lower, at $15 02, but the early loss was soon more than regained, the market ad vancing to $15.22; January lard opened 5c higher, at $8.60, and ribs unchanged, at $8.05. An active demand for both October pork and lard caused a sensational advance of fOc In the former and 47c in the latter from the opening figures.

It will cost $750,000 to conti-'.:'t and equip the rapid transit system uoon the World's fair grounds. The length of the road and its branches will be eii?-ht miles and it will enable the visitors to see th vast exposition with as little fatigue as possible. The problem in nlannins the intra-mural road has been to nlace it where it would not mar the beauty of the expo sition. Eminent engineers have been called into consultation and all phase9 of the project thoroughly studied. It is believed the plan presented by Charles V. Weston of Chicago comes nearest to a perfect solution of the difficulty Ow ing to the varyinc altitudes of the ex position grounds the road will be at times an elevated lino and in other parts built at crade or below the sur face. The trip on the intra-mural will be one of the most delightful diversions for visitors to the exposition. Formosa Will Exhibit. St. Louts, Oct. 1. James W.
