TOPEKA STATE JOURNAI THURSDAY ETOXIXG JTPNE 251903.
Tomorrow and Saturday Ve want to sell a thousand pairs of Woolen Mill Trousers, and we would like to close out every Ladies' Skirt in the store. We are anxious to prove to the Woolen Mill people that our " Dollar's worth for a Dollar'" policy makes it possible for us to sell as much of their merchandise in just five days as they thought we would, do well to dispose of in thirty days. i Many Ladies Who have bought Skirts from the Woolen Mill's stock in our store are anxious to have us take their orders at double the price, and get more New Skirts from the Mill, but as we are not in the dry goods business, we shall not place in our stock anything except such goods as the manufacturers are anxious to close out in clean ing up the flooded goods. Every dollar realized out of this stick is promptly turned over to the Woolen Mill Company. Every dollar you pay us for these goods goes direct to Xorth Topeka to help in giving employ ment to North Topeka people. You can help a home institution, while vou Watch Us Grow. obmson, u ii Ind.

Amidst great en thusiasm King Peter this morning took the oath before the skupshtina. Subse quently he held a, review- of the troopis. The oath taken by the king was in the following terms: "I. Peter Karageorgovitoh. on ascend ing the throne of the kingdom of Sorvia and assuming the royal prerogative, swear by the Almighty God anil by all that Is holiest and dearest to me upon this earth, that I will protect the inde pendence of Servia ami the unity of its government; that 1 will maintain in violate the constitution of the country; that I will govern in conformity with 'the constitution and the laws and that in all undertakings and dealings I will keep the welfare of my people before j my eyes. Taking this, my oath, solemn ity before God and the people I call as witness the Lord God to whom I shall 1 give account at the judgment seat. So i help ine iod. Amen." Previous to tbe king taking the oath : there was a joint sitting of the sena:e jnnd skupshtina. attended by a re I iigious service at which the metrooo!- itan officiated. I The president of the senate opened the joint session with the announee nunt that the king would take the oath to maintain the constitution. King Peter then appeared, wearing his orders and other decorations, and accompanied by bis cabinet ministers. The metropolitan uttered a brief prayer and then read the oath, which the king repeated in a firm voice. Louj cries of "Long live King peter" punctu ated the king's repetition of the oath.

June 25. King refer this afternoon confirmed the appointments of the existing ministry. WHY THEY STAYED. Russia and Austria Feared Another Revolution. ! Paris. June 25. The French minister to Servia has reported the circumstances attending the departure of the ministers from Belgrade as follows: i AH the ministers received similar in structions to act together. According ly tin understanding was reached that they should depart, this step being ve garded as the most emphatic rn-thod of i impressing the powers protesting :ng;inst the assassinations ofKingAlex-and-r and Queen Hraga. The Kusskin and Austrian ropn s -ntntives apparent ly shared in the principle of the protest but did not withdraw because Russia and Austria ware nppi ehensi ve tint united withdrawal of th entire diplo mntie representation at Belgrade would precipitate another revolution. The offi cials h. re say the (ntent" of the minis ters to Servia now becomes an entente of the powevs in expressing a prot -st. iTo duration of absence of the mints iters from Belgrade is indefinite ami dt- pends mainly on King Peter's course in i the selection of his ministers and the j terms of Servia's notification to the powt rs of the inauguration of the new regime.

LAST CQflSiSTORY Those Who Attended the Cere mony Todar in Home IJelieved the Tope Would Never Hold Another. A LITTLE MOKE BOWED And a Little Jlore Wax-like lie Appeared. His Voice Is Thinner, and His Attendants Showed Anxiety Home, June 23. The public consistory, postponed from June Is. was held today with much pomp and additional interet and reverence for, in spite of the reas suring news concerning the popd's health many believed that this would be the last consistory under Leo XIII. The assemblage gazed at the venerable pontiff with intense cut iosity and thete was redoubled enthusiasm in the cries of -Long live Leo." He looked a little more waxlike, a little more bowed, his voice was somewhat thinner and it was evident that his attendants were anx ious. There were many strangers among the crowds gathered in the coi ridors of the Sala Kegia and Sala Hucale to wit ness the passage of the cortege. The pontiff was iforne in the sedia gestatoria by eight bearers ciad in red brocade. They were flanked by the bearers of the famous flabelli or feathered fans. The pone smiled while he blessed the crowds as he passed. In fact, at times he tried to rise fo as to better impart his benediction and it was only whe.i he descended from the sedia gestatoria that his extreme weakness was appar ent. Following tlie pontiff came a gorgeous line of scarlet clad cardinals, fiiars, in vaiious habits, priests and membeis of the papal court wearing- velvet 'ku e breeches and white ruffles. The church dignitaries were escorted by the noble Swiss and Palatine guards which with the sistinechoirchantingsoiemnly was a picture. Tribunes were erected on b uh sitles of the papal throne for the accom modation of the members of the diplo matic corps, the kings of .Malta, the Roman at istix-racy, the family of the pope and relatives of the newly created cardinals. Among the Americans were Mgr. Kennedy, rector of the American college; Mgr. Farielli. secretary of the American college anil privy chamber lain to the pope; Most Rev. Robert Se ton, formerly of jersey City. "Titular Archbishop of Helcpol and Right Rev. F. Z. Rocker, bishop of Jarro, Pniiippi::e islands. The ceremony was made as short as possible in order to lessen tlie pontiff's fatigue. The pope sat on the throne facing the bioeade covered benches in the form of a square on which the car dinals were seated. The new cardinais pn sent who were to receive the red hat from the pontiff according to custom, tivst took the oath in the gistine chapel and wer hen :sLered into the Sala regia. where they were greeted by the master of the cei . monies, fin approach ing the pontiff th" three cardinals knelt and kissed his fuet and his hand and the pope then gave them the double embrace. Thc- new cardinals after ward embraced the other cardinals. Re turning to the pontiff each of the row cardinals then received from his hand a cardinal's hat. which ended the cere mony. The pope thereupon rose, be stowed the apostolic, benediction and preceded by the pontiiic.nl cross and surrounded by the cardinals andattend ,mts retired. Subsequently the pope re joined the cardinals in theSistine chapel and the pontiff announce.) the new epis copn 1 appointments. These appoint ments have all been previously an nounced from time to time. The p'ostulants: For Archbishop Far ley. Mgr. Farrelly: for Arohbis'iop Ouiglev. Mgr. Jaquiem. and for Bishop Orth.

At 3:30 o'clock the committee on res olutions submitted a majority and mi nority report to the convention the minority asking for the reaffirmation of the Kansas City platform. The major ity opposed the policy of imperialism, condemns the Republican party's finan cial pciici' s, protests against the Aid rich bill for loaning money of the gov ernment, deplores the corruption in the piostoffice department, refers to the alarming growth of the trust evils, fa vors revision of the tariff and opposes government by injunction. 'The trust plank is as follows: "As the most alarr.-.ii'.er ft atari's of our presf nt conditions are the eviis which eome frnni trusts, and as tht se evils ar" node possihle by legisla tion favoring on, class and airainst another by transpcrta! -i 11 privileges and by monopoly of original sourcos of supply or natural proOuets. therefore, that tlie evil connected with the growth of trusts may be eliminated. we call for the r moval of the tarifl from ail trust made goods arid demand that ail tariff schedules be readjusted with a view to tar iff for revenue only. "We ask for such changes in mr law. statutory or constitutional, as will limit the charges by railroads to such an amount as will yield only a reasonable re turn on the capital aetuaily invested and will- render it impossible for transporta tion favors to be granted, to any one, and such as will make il certain that all rail way companies will be treated alike, such statutes to provide penalties that wili be effi ctual to secure a compliance with them. "When the sources of supply of any pro duct are in the ownership of those who combine to extort from the people an inre as'.mable amount of such products, then we believe it is the duty cf the p-iv-ernment to take such steps as may be necessary to secure an equitable distribu tion thereoff. with fair compensation to the owners of the same, so that the de sign of nature in making provisions for the wants of n-an may not lie perverted into means for his oppression."
