Warriner also saved his book. they being- on the second floor. The injury to all books was greater than the mere damage by water. All bindings were of course ruined, but in addition to this the insides were filleu with plimy mud. which can only be re moved by a liberal supply of water. All mndrn furniture is ruined, whether upholstered or plain. This is mostly p.ut together with glue, and the finer grades are simply veneered, and all this is worthless. .Some of the older styles, that are more substantial, bein held by peps or dovetailed work. aJ"o apparently as solid as ever, except th ut.hoisterv.

Little F.ock, Ark., June S. A letter has been received in Little Rock from Judge H. C. Caldwell of the Eighth ! nnh e;.,, Will Marry Tomorrow. United States circuit court saying' that he forwarded his resiy nation to Presi dent Roosevelt on June 2, to take effect on June 4. The letter was written at Wi-son Wheel Gap, Col., where the judp is spending the summer with his family. There hav been rumors of Judffe Cald well's retirt ment lor some time. JudK? Caldwell is years rdd and his friends expected him to rt sin in October, but Jude Caldwell held on in order to take advantage of the provisions of a law then pending to increase the pay of re I tired judges. The hill has since become j a law and he will receive Sti.r.Oo a year, i It is understood that Judge W. C. Hook of the United States district court will ; succeed Judtre Caldwell. 1 Judge Caldweil was appointed to the UmUd States district court of Arkansas by 1 'resident Lincoln in 1SC4. and held the piae- twenty-six years. He was made circuit judge by President Har i ison. The Kighth circuit includes Iowa, Missouri. Kansas, Arkansas. ( )klahoma, Minnesota. NebrasKa, the two Dakotas, Colorado, N-w Mexico, Utah, Wyoming and Indian Territory. J u d ir e C a 1 d we 11 was mention e d as a candidate for vice president on the "Bry an ticket at the last election. Jn an ad dress bf fore the M iss; uri Ba r a ssocia t ion at St . Louis. J ndge Caldwell took a n ad va need position in opposition to "government by injuetion," and object ed to it as a direct assault upon the most sacred right of the people, the right of trial by judge and jury. As federa 1 judgf s ha ve been pa rt ieula rly prone to yield to the temptation to govern by in junction. Judie Caldwell's position was considered remarkable. A typical story about J u d g Caldwell which was brought out by the gossip concerning his possible nomination for the vice presidency, tells of a case in which an a ttorney for an insurance company was attempting to evade pay ment of insurance on some technical ground. The suit was brought by the insured. As the attorney was proceed ing; with is argument Judge Caldwell interrupted him. "Let rne understand you," he said to the attorney. "The policy was issued?" "Yes," was the rerdy. "And the premiums were paid?' 'And the house was burned?" "Yes." "And it was not set cn fire?" "No." replied the at tetrney. "Well," said Jud.ce Caldwell to th attorney, "you can sit down. The jury will bring in -i verdict for the plain tiff " Jud.cre Caldwell was horn in Marshall county. West Virginia. He was ad mitted to the bar in 1Sl-2 and was pros e utine attornev of Van Buren county, Iowa, until 15S. He was a member of the Iowa legislature until the outbreak of the ci il war, "when he enlisted in the Third Iowa cavalry. He Jeft the service at the close of the war colonel of the regiment.

HUE IS OPE Santa Fe Now Has Direct Chi cago Connection. The Road Is t'sed by Way of Atchison. U0CK ISLAND THROUGH Their Trains Now Enter from the East. Built a Bridge Over New River Channel. The tanta Fe line to St. Joseph has been opened up at last and that road can now run trains through to Chicago over its own track. Kver since the wa ter fell sufficiently to expose the track to view gangs of section hands have been hard at work repairing the many breaks between. Meriden and the norti; end of the bridge. Last nisht the men completed the last part of their work, the repairing of the north approach to the. bridgre which was washed out dur ing the time when the water was at its highest. Just as soon as the last finishing touches were put on and the workmen had announced that the line was ready those trains which have been tied up here began to move towards the north and are now well on their way to Chi cago. The fVains were composed of cars oontainins the Chicago passengers from trains No. 2 and 6 on Saturday and Nos. S end 18 on Sunday. All of tliese passengers were fed at the expense cf the Santa Fe during the time that they were" tied up at this point. The new Harvey addition to the south end of the depot has at last been finished after many months of hard work and was opened up to th public Sunday morning. The marooned pas sengers were the first ones to be served. Although the Santa Fe was standing the expense the feeding of the passen gers was done in no slip-shod manner. Although it was not necessary it was done stylishly and a la mode. The new dining room with its fancy trap pings is undoubtedly superior to any in this part of the country. Santa Fe passengers who are obliged to lake one of their meals at Topeka will no longer have to roost upon a stool and grab at their food. The dining room and lunch counter combined was plenty large enough to accommodate those who were serve.! there yesterday, although the six cats which were sidetracked in front of the depot were all filled with hungrv -prts-se tigers. About fifty people can ae ac commodated at one time in the dining room and about forty at the lunch counter, making ninety the capacity of the new eating house. It is stated that all Chicago trains will now- go through by way of Topeka. as they did in the days before the flood. It is not thought, however, that the main line to Kansas City will be opened up for several weeks. The Rock Island reports the condi tions on their lines out of here ea.-t to be good. Like the Santa Fe they have oiiened up their St. Joseph line, although they had to go to more trouble to oi,en u;i this line than the Santa Fe did. The new channel cut through the flock Island tracks ami made- another bridge necessary. This bridge has tit en finished, however, and two trains will be run over the St. Jo seph line daily, one in each direction. The Fort Worth line has also been opened up. and trains are now moving. The train for Fort Worth will leave Topeka at about 11 o'clock today, and the train from that point will arrive here at about 5 o'clock this evening. The bieaks in the Hock Island's Colo rado lino hrve not yet been repaired. The Union Pacific's line to Kansas City has not yet been opened up, but the officials of that road state that they will be able to get western trains both ir. and out of here today. Tiie Santa Fe has established the fol lowing temporary service to and from Topeka. The circular was issued to the newspapers from the general offices this morning. It will be effective as long as the road is obliged to use the cut-off and the St. Joseph line intsead cut-off and the St. Joseph line instead way of Topeka anrl I -awrence: Train will leave Topeka. at 11:50 a. m. connecting at Kmporia with train from Kansas City for points in Kansas. Colo rado, Oklahoma and Texas. Tins train will also connect at Fmporia with No. t which will be run to Kansas City over th" cut off and will bring passen gers to Topeka and intermediates who reach Kmporia on Nos. 2 and fi. A train will leave Topeka at 12:05 a. m. connecting at Emporia with through train from Kansas City for western Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas. Tnis train will also connect at Empoira with Xo. 18 for Kansas City. Returning this train will bring passengers to Topeka and intermediates who reach Emporia on Nos. R and IS, and who leave Kan sas C'ty on No. 17. Train will leave Topeka at 6 a. m. connecting at Emporia with No. 112 for Kansas City, which will be held for the connection. Returning train will leave Emporia after arrival of No. Ill from Kansas City, which is due at Emporia at S:5'1 n. m. In addition to the above the through Chicago-California trains will be run vfa St. Joseph anrl Atchison. Trains Nos. 1 and 7 westbound will reach To peka in the afternoon. No. 2 eastbound is due to leave Topeka at 2:50 p. m. and is due at Chieaeo at 7:50 a. m. No. S is due to leave Topeka at 4:50 a. m. and to reach Chicago at S:47 p. m. Owing, however, to the increased distance be tween Topeka and Chicago via St. Joe, trains will probably not reach Chicago on schedule time. Nos. 1 tnd 7 will af ford passengers an opportunity to reach Kansas. California. New Mexico, Ari zona.

Talk of Allowing the Street Railway This Privilege. raefinite propositions were made by the City Railway company Saturday night to the city council for the right to use the Melau bridge for two years for a street car track to North Topeka. An ordinance was introduced conferring this right, but was postponed for final consideration until the council meeting culled for this even ing. in consideration of the right given to run over the bridge the company agrees to rebuild tiie south approach, which will probably cost several luualrfu dollars, and also construct a pile bridge where the north approach of the bridge used to stand. The pile bridge will ptobably cost several thousand dollars. It will be Nuilt wide enough and strong enough to carrv the wagon and pedestrian traffic as well as the street car bridge. Most of tiie tim bers from the old street car bridge can be used in this structure. City Engineer Mcl'abe was sick Satur day and unable to attend the special coun cil meeting, and the council withheld ac tion pending his opinion. There is some question as to whether the city council has the right to anther, ize the company to build on the bridge. The county commissioners claim this right exclusively and the commissioners have been invited to mi f t witli the city coun cil this evening and try to agree to what ever the council decides to da. Mayor Bcrgundthal and Councilmen Kutz and Blossom of Xorth Topeka are all in favor of the proposed orninance grant ing a temporary right of way across ihe bridge and so far there seems to be no very determined opposition to the plan. Unless such an arrangement is made it may be a year or two before any street cars are run in North Tnpek-i. The oi linance is made up of six sections. The substance of these is as follows: Section 1 grants the Topeka Kailwnr company. with all its appliane. : s. the right to operate its cars over the Melan bridge. Section 2 provides that the company shall, at its own expense, rebuild 'he south approach and pile slructure oyer the place where the north approach stood. Section 3 provides that the right shall lie conferred only temporarily and shall not be continued for a longer period than two years. Section -1 provides that all the work cf construction shall be under the direction nf the city engineer and shall be com menced immediately after its passage. j Sections 5 and ft pro ide for the accept ance and publication of the ordinance. Mr. Myers nf tiie City Railway company j says: "We do not want tr use the bridge. We are not seeking this right and will only do it at the request of the council for I the benefit of the people of North Topeka. j We. will build a temporary pile bridge if the council asks us tn do so, but we have no desire to use the hridge permanently and do not care to cross unless it will help the people of the north side." TRUEB ILLS FOUND. GrofT Brothers Indicted for Of fering Bribes to Machen. Washington, June 8.

Machen, former superintendent cf free delivery of the postoflice depai tmerit:. This action was taken, it is learned on the same day that Mr. Machen vr.s in dicted.

Denounced by Justice Brewer in Address at St. Louis. St. Louis, June 6. Justice David J. Brewer, of the United States supreme court, addressed the Missouri Bar as sociation today on "The Triumphs of Justice." Justice Brewer first noticed the fact that humanity was ever look ing for a better day; that in the begin ning might ruled all and man, in this respect, was similar to the brute. He traced the development of the conflict between might and right and showed how in the processes of time the strug gle for right led to the introduction of the judge into histeiry. He referred to the clamor against injunctions and pointed out how, in harmony with all oth--T se-iences. the preventive power was more important than the curing or punishing. He appealed for higher ideals on I ho part of the bar and the bench; denounced politics' in the bench and demanded permanent tenure of office. - HAS FALLEN A FOOT.

Plan Now Is to Rebuild Bridges. the It is almost certain that a special ses sion of the legislature will be held for the purpose of appropriating money :a relieve the damage done by the flood. Governor Bailey was in Atchison thin morning, and went to Kansas City thi3 afternoon for the purpose of consulting with the people there who are advo cating the calling of a special session of the legislature. The center of th: agitation for a special session is Kan sas City, Kas., where a committee ham been formed with J. K. Cubbison as chairman to secure pledges from mem bers of the legislature to serve with out pay during a short session. This committee has sent out telegrams sim ilar iu form to this to each member of the senate: 'Please wire Governor Bailey you willingness to attend a short special res-ion without ray to adopt legislation made necessary by hood. Have house members wire same. 'T. B. GILBERT, "Mayor Kansas City, Kas, - "J. K. CUBBISON, "Chairman of Committee." Up to noon today eighteen favorable replies to the above telegram had been j received at the governor's office, j Governor Bailey will probably return to Topeka Tuesday. Harry Bone, the governor's private secretary, would not say definitely when the governor was I expected. FOR BUILDING NEW BRIDGES. It is understood that the governor is not favorable to a special session for the purpose of appropriating money for the indiscriminate use of relieving flood sufferers. If a special session is called, it will be for the pftrpose of appropriat ing money to rebuild the bridges which have been washed out by the flood. Kansas City is therefore especially in terested in the session, because there were thirteen Kansas river bridges washed out in that city. Three bridges were washed out in Shawnee county, be sides the approaches to the Melan, bridge and tiie street railway bridge. The governor is said to Vie opposed to calling a special session for the purpose of making a general appropriation, for the reason that if it became known that such action had been taken, it would effectually prevent any further contri butions toward the relief of the flood sufferers. There will doubtless be some oppo sition to the Man for having a special session to merely appropriate money tj rebuild Kansas river brirlges, on the grounrl that Kansas City, Kas., might benelit from the move more than other localities. It is possible, however, that the money appropriated would he divid ed acrording to population or assessed valuation, instead of according to the number of bridges washed out. There are- a good many objections to cither method of procedure. It is the purpose of the governor ft look over the ground at Kansas City, Kan., and find out whether the situa tion justifies the calling of a special session to relieve the situation. Unless there seems to be an Imperative need for a special session, it can be stated authoritatively that none will be called. SEED FOR FARMETtS. It has been suggested that one thinu the special session should provide for is seed for the farmers in the Kaw valley. These farmers, if they are given pota toes immediately, can raise a good crop yet this season. Other kinds of seed are also needed. Even if the legislature does not meet, it is probable that Governor Bailey will use whatever contributions come into the state relief fund for the puivhase of seeds for free distribution among the devastated farms. It is said that Captain II. M. Philips will be placed in charge of the work of seed distribution. Captain Philips stated today that he would he willing to take charge of this work If his services were desired. WATER IN BANKS. In This Case It Wasn't Watered Stock, Either. Reports at the bank commissioner's office develop the fact that not less than a dozen banks in the state were partial ly or entirely Inundated, during the ro cent floods. The Citizens' State bank and the Shawnee State bank of North Tapeka and the Armourdale State Bank of Commerce of Kansas City, were en tirely under water. Their vaults we e not water tight and the books and rec ords were completely saturated. The officials maintain though that the con dition of the banks and each customers" account can be easily told, despite the fact that these records were in water for a number of days. The Kansas State bank and the Home State bank, of Kansas City, Kan., the First State Bank of Argentine, the Bar.k of Perry, and the Farmers' and Dt overs' bank of Council Grove were partially under water, but the records of none of them were materially damaged. At Hutchinson and a number of other towns, there was water to the depth of from one to three feet in a number of banks, but no material damage wa3 done. Weather Indications. Chicago, June 8.
