The State Journal Is a member of the Associated Pres and receives the full day telegraph report of that rreat news or ganization for exclusive afternoon pucil- ,-ation In Topeka. The news le received In the State Jour nal building over wires for tbis sole pur How many of us remembered the Blaine on Wednesday, the anniversary Ct the tragedy in Havana harbor? The -weather and the belligerents in Manchuria appear to be warming up Simultaneously. The siege guns which did the business for Port Arthur have been brought Into play at Foutlloff hill. Fifty million dollars is a large sum but that is -what it is proposed to de mote to road building In New York. IWith good roads and automobiles the people will be able to bid defiance to the railroads. The burning of the Casino theater fcrings to public notice the fact that there are three kinds of play houses those that are safe, those that are offl cially safe and those that are unsafe officially and every other way. Topeka bas one of the latter class. Minneapolis Journal: One of the sad iflest moments In Senator Burton's career was when he stood in the doorway of the senate and could have decided the statehood bill by his vote had he dared to g4ve It. The way of the .transgres sor bas icy places in its pavements. In a discussion of the oil legislation the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle Bays: "The action of the Kansas legis lature may not be entirely wise, but it Is a warning to every monopoly in the country that, if it uses its power so selfishly as to produce intolerable con ditions, it is as sure as death and taxes that the people will find a way to smash it. The strongest trust is but a puny affair, compared with the people." "Jim" Hill, the railroad manager, is taking steel rails from ..Chicago to Japan, says the Hartford Courant, for 40 cents a hundred pounds. That is said to be the rate charged by the rail roads for the same service between Chi cago and New Tork. The question that arbitrary rates of this sort raise with the vulgar everyday citizen is whether Japan or America is getting the bene fit of the remarkably cheap rate. It strikes some simpletons that low freights between . New Tork and Chi cago might do this country as much good as those of which Japan gets the long end. That's ignorance. Only rail road men know what is good for their people. ' In the matter of the Monroe Doctrine the president insists that it is no longer merely a theory but a condition which confronts us. San Domingo owes all Europe and either will not or cannot ay. Her creditors are becoming im patient ajid hint at forcible collection. This could be accomplished only by tak ing over territory permanently or occu pying it while administering the reve nue affairs of the country. Neither of these courses could be permitted under the principles of the Monroe Doctrine. What follows? We must either collect the money and pay these people or be accused, and justly, of playing the part cf the dog in the manger. If we stand pat on the Monroe Doctrine as hitherto interpreted there is always the possi bility of unpleasant complications, even going as far as actual war. The posi tion of the president appears to be un assailable from the standpoint of com mon sense. THICK GLOOM. Prom the Grand Rapids Press. "The Association for Maintaining the Rights of Property" is an organization formed by some of the railroads in or der to contest the passage of the freight rate bill now pending at Washington. According to its representatives the railroads are in imminent danger of bankruptcy, and the passage of this bill .would be the last straw. Its attorneys propose to demonstrate to the president and to the senate that a reduction of only one-tenth of 1 per cent per ton per mile will wipe out all of the interest of the stockholders of the railroads, and that a further reduc tion of one mill will wipe out the In terest paid to bondholders, thus utterly destroying the value of railroad proper ties. But this is not the worst of it. There are 1,000,000 poor people who are small policy holders in Boston life insurance companies. The value of their policies depends on the value of the railroad stocks and bonds owned by the insur ance companies. If the value, of the properties is destroyed, these policy holders will lose the amount of their policies. Lower freight rates also mean lower wages for upwards of a million men who gain their livelihood in a more or less direct manner from the railroads. , There are a number of questions which the association's lawyers, may be asked, the replies to which would be of great interest. They may be asked why the companies have capitalized their properties so heavily that they cannot do business at reasonable rates and pay interest on their bonds. If they save vercapltalized so heavily, by what right do they insist that the coun try shall be compelled to pay interest on water? However, neither the com panies nor the public need be alarmed over the adoption of the freight rate bill. The men who will establish the rates under the law will not be ap pointed for' the purpose wholly of te duclng rates. It will be their duty merely to see that everybody has a fair deal. Lower rates are not so much de manded as honest rates and Just deal ing, and If the railroad3- cannot give honest rates and cannot deal fairly with all. it Is time for them to go out of business. THE RAILROAD BILL. Notwithstanding the unanimous passage of the house railway bill, the senate has taken the first step to slaughter It. It has been charged that the "rail roads had the senate and were not worrying." Have they? The senate committee on railroads, of which Senator Betts of this county is chairman, has voted six to four to report against the bill. There is a minority report, how. ever. The objection is to section four, the very meat and substance of the whole measure. If the senate means to cut out section four, it might Just as well be honest and straightforward about the matter ana cut out everything after the enacting clause. Section four is a paragraph which gives the com missioners power to act and to act in an effective way. Section nine, an other important section, supplements It by a provision for relief on inter state shipments. In both state rates and the Kansas proportion of interstate rates is tne state most unjustly discriminated against. If the senate defeats the house bill Senator Betts will be most severely called to account. He cannt stand, on both sides of this Question, practically without opposition, on his assurance that he would favor railway regulation by the state. In ODDosine and defeating in the committee the favorable recommenda tion of the house, he has shown that he is simply for the railroads. There can be no two ways about this. Why should not Kansas, even in the mild manner proposed by section four, regulate freights, as do the states of Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska and Texas, . although Kansas does not ask for anything as "drastic" as exists in these adjoining states which receive freight rates half and less than half those charged in Kansas? To paraphrase the remark of Gover nor Hoch in his inaugural address, Kansas is the rich, Juicy meat in the railroad sandwich of states. Topeka.is so friendly to railroads -andr is always so generously inclined, especially toward the Santa Fe, our big institution, that it Is easy to gather together a couple of dozen men, including the paid attor neys and employes of the railroads who, of course, are friendly, and pass resolu tions opposing any regulation of freight rates. This will explain In the measure last night's gathering of the twenty-six. A meeting of the Commercial club can be called to express exactly opposite sentiments. Senator Betts was .for the railroads and he simply worked a scheme to get a nominal expression that the commercial nterests were Joyful and happy over present conditions. The broad minded people must understand that freight regulation must be such that all locali ties will be given fair treatment and reasonable rates. Topeka must not look at this matter from a narrow view point. The facts are that aside from certain shipping interests, Topeka is paying outrageous rates; two and three times rates charged in other states un der similar conditions. The right adjustment of this freight question will mean millions of dollars to the state of Kansas and it will not mean any injustice to railway corpora tions. The way to regulate is to pass the house bill without changing sections four ant nine. The way to preserve the old order of things is to cut out section four. JATHAWKEK JOTS. Holyrood wants a hotel.

Gas and Oil Committee of House Ap proves It. An important meeting of the gas and oil committee of the house was held Thursday afternoon, at which it was de cided to recommend for passage the Smith bill making pipe lines common carriers for oil. This Is the bill which was passed by the senate, and which the house has under consideration this afternoon. Senator Smith explained his bill to the committee, and the opposition to it which was expected did not show ereat strength. ROBIHETT BILL KILLED. Senate Disposes of the Separate School Measure. Representative Robinett's house hill for the establishment of separate hiirn schools for white and colored at Kansas City, Kan., was called up by Senator Getty and at once placed on third read ing lor passage and defeated by a vote of 25 to 10. . ...

' Great Organist Is Greatly Pleas ed With Organ. The dedication of the new pipe or gan at the Auditorium will take place tonight. The progarmme will begin promptly at 8 o'clock and all should be seated by that time. The ushers will not under any circumstances seat persons during the rendering of a number. There has been an extraordinary de mand for tickets for the dedicatian during the day. While the sale has been good every- day since the chart was opened at Stansfield's drug store, there was an increased demand today. .ine indications . point to a large, critical and appreciative audience for tonight. Those who attend: will be more than repaid for the; expenditure necessary ana xor tne time,spent In attending. It is quite probable that the visits of such organists as Mr. Eddy will not De or. rreqtfiilitly occurrence. There will no doubt be many organists who will visit Topeka. but there will be ex ceedingly few: -who will bring with them the ability- and reputation of the organist whp was secured for the dedication recital. Mr. Clarence A. Eddy who will ded icate the organ said after he had test ed it: "The music loving people of New York would be more than elated if they had such an organ and such a hall for chorous purposes as you have here." Mr. Eddy continued. "Carne gie Hall is not so large as your Audi torium and the organ is not so good. The equipment which you have here is almost as good as at the Auditor ium at Chicago. There are not many organs in the United States so good as the one you have here. Of course the organ at Pittsburg and the one at Alleghany are larger than yours, but I am satisfied that with the improved mechanical appliances of this organ that you are about as well equipped as is possible." Mr, Eddy is 54 years old. . He is young looking for his age, and is ex traordinarily active and vigorous. In fact he declares that he is growing younger instead Of older. Mr. Eddy has gray hair but his-face is as yet unlined. Several of the' Selections which Mr. Eddy will give tonight .will be played from the original manuscripts of the music written by the composers. Notable among this class is the op ening number, the concert overature in C minor my Alfred Hollins. Hoilins is a blind eomposer and the manuscript for the music in Mr. Eddy's possession was written by the com poser's wife and is signed by Hollins. Two numbers of the program were were written by William Faulkes. The beauty of Faulkes' compositions was first discovered by, Mr, Eddy, and the noted organist has exploited the Faulkes compositions to a considerable extent. Mr. Eddy -will play one number writ ten by the great Guilmant, the French organist. There is a difference of opin ion as to which is the greater organist, Guilmant or Eddy At any rate it seems to be generally conceded that the two organists here mentioned are the lead ers in that field of music in the world. The Guilmant number on the pro gramme is the "Lamentation." The music may be thoroughly under stood by all. It is a sorrowful portray al of grief and serves for the introduc tion of the chimes which are a part of the organ. The programme: PART I. Dedicatory Remarks James A. Trout man. "Te Deum" Prof Geo.

The direct subscriptions to the pipe organ fund aggregate $3,337 and are itemized below. It was the hope of the committee that the sales for the dedication concert to night would contribute the remainder of the $6,000 now due and constituting the first payment on the great instru ment. While there has been a large sale up to this time, it is hardly possi ble that the net receipts will be suffi cient to make up the necessary balance. The expenses for the concert tonight are comparatively light, so that the great bulk of the seat sale' will be ap plied directly on the payment, i A large number of business men who have been invited to make subscriptions and who desire to contribute have de layed making a definite subscription and have not as yet stated the exact j amount of their contribution. It is to be hoped that when they see and hear, the wonderful and magnificent instru ment dedicated tonight they will at once name their offering and send a check to F. M. Bonebrake, treasurer of the fund. While the association has presented a number of first class musical and other entertainments the financial re sults have in the main been unfortu nate, except for the Meiba concert. Parsifal, Campanari and other engage ments proved a loss. While a great house greeted Melba, she took the lion's share of the receipts and left the f.om,mlttf,e about $500. and prac- tnllTr oil nf T Vi i o q tti nnnt -urn a nhl l craii "ct"y a" T l , oollS to be used to make good the losses and tne guaraiiLeeu cxyciiHeH ui pvou5 entertainments. A portion of the Melba net receipts has been used to defray certain necessary advanced charges and expenses in connection with the placing of the organ and the preparation for tonight's concert and the arrangements for the remainder of the course. .The entertainment committee, profiting by past experience, has de clined to guarantee receipts and be lieves that the future entertainments will all realize somepront.

John O'Brien, assistant general manager of the--Prairie Oil and Gas company which handles the bulk of the crude oil produced in the Kansas and Indian territory oil field was in Kansas City today and discussed condition in the Kansas field, where an agitation against the Standard Oil company has been carried to such an extent that is Is being made a matter of national in terest. Mr. O'Brien said: "The Prairie Oil and Gas com pany's determination to suspend fur ther construction operations in the Kansas and territory field follows as natural result of- a hostile agitation which was designed ana carried out, mostly by stock jobbers to injure the Prairie Oil and Gas company, or the Standard Oil company as they term It, . The only way In which these : stock jobbers could ward off the con sequence of an exposure Of their ope rations lay in securing a plausible ex cuse, with which to allay the clamor of stockholders. "Few people realize the extent to which this stock jobbing business has been carried on in Kansas. Here I might say that the handbook com piled bv Matthews & McMahon. of Chanute," Kan., shows 64 companies, each capitalized at $1,000,000 and over, or an aggregate of about $74. 000,000. with an aggregate production of 1,500 barrels per day, or about il barrels production per day to eacli million dollars of capital. It will be readily seen that the wonderful prom ises made to stockholders have never been carried out, and the only salva tion for the promoters lay in the pos sibility of placing the blame on some body and the Standard Oil company was selected as the target. This agita tion gives most of them their only ex cuse for failure to comply with their promises to stockholders. "Reports to the effect that we have posted notices declining to buy any Kansas oil are incorrect, and there is not one word of truth in them, as well as a numDer oi jm-i iciii statements that have been published in the papers designed, presumably, to keep up excitement at Topeka. by flooding the state with all kinds of sensational reports." Mi ADJOURN TONIGHT. Grand Jnry nas Considered Nothing But Liquor Cases. This afternoon at 2 o'clock the Shawnee county grand jury met to vote upon the indictments which have been drawn up by County Attorney Hungate during the re cess which tne jury has taken since Monday-said there wi not be more than six or eight indictments altogether, and thev will all be for violations of the prohibitory law. At least two of these are said to be against druggists. Countv Attorney Hungate was asked this morning about the returns and said: "Why, I cannot say anything; it would not be right for me to do that. I do not know if any will be indicted. I have simply drawn up the papers and will give them to the Jury this afternoon. It takes 12 affirmative votes to make a CSS rices.

It is understood that the Jury will finally adjourn this evening, unless some otner matters have been suggested to Foreman E. H. Crosby during the week for the deliberation of the body of which he has charge. Concerning that of course Mr. Crosby refused to talk, but it Is com mon gossip that the session of the pres ent Shawnee county grand jury Is over. FOR GOOD ROADS.
