THE TOPEKA STATE JOURNAL, FRIDAY EVENING, MARCH 10, 1905.
5 SNAP SHOTS AT HOME NEWS I wonder if ever a song was sung. But the singer's heart sans sweeter! I wonder if ever a rhvme was rung. But the. thought surpassed the meter! I wonder if ever sculptor wrought. Till the cold stone echoed his ardent thought! Or if a painter, with light and sha.de, The dream of his inmost heart portrayed. I wonder if ever a rose was found. And there miarht not be a tajfer! Or it' ever a flittering gem was ground. And we dre.um d not of a rarer! Ah, never oir earth do we find the best. But it waits for us in a land of rest. And a perfect thing: we shall never behold Till we ras the portals of shining gold. James Clarence Harvey in Kew Orleans Picayune. O. J. Shannon will go to California for a six weeks' visit shortly.

Harry Steinberg gives his famous confetti ball tomorrow evening. Come and have a good time and see the fun. Now that the legislature is history the next entertainment will be the eprlng opening of the Sells & Downs circus. The high school is planning to put out a track team again this spring. The material is said to be exceptionally promising. "Long Jaivn" Howerton, of anti fire cracker fame, has gone home to Rossville to look after his steers and real estate. A lot of the legislators who roasted the Topeka hotels went home to get their fill of salt pork, navy beans and spinach and tripe. The frost which settled down on certain candidates on election day must feel to them even chillier than this day's snow storm. The frogs that have been singing for the last ten days will think that they or the snow storm got the dates mixed somewhere along the line. This year the legislature will get away without removing the dome from the state house. Two years ago about all that was left was the state house. That hunting trip of Eergundthal's to the Indian Territory, when he came home without any game after hunting for ten days, may have had something to do with It. Do you appreciate the fact that the legislature, out of the goodness of its heart, voted money to repair the state house steps and to resurface the walks and driveways? - Senator Fred Dumont Smith antici pated a trip to Europe" this spring but if he keeps on fighting the trusts and the octopuses he will not find time for Lieutenant Governor and Mrs. Han na left today for Clay Center to visit Governor Hanna's mother.

Bright was not hers to sing "Throw Out the Life Line" dur ing the closing hours of the legislature, and there is no one else who can sing it as can Bright so the 'lators dispensed with this usual ceremony. Rev. Mr. Bright is now holding revival services at Fairfield, Iowa. E. C. MaeLennan, a country merchant at Dragoon, Osage county, met with a slight but painful accident while driv ing in to Topeka yesterday.

MaeLennan, 410 West Tenth avenue. Dr. F. H. Snow, of the university of Kansas, has been selected from the faculty of the university as one of the lecturers in the spring lecture course of the Field Columbian museum, of Chi cago. With one exception. Dr. Snow is. the only speaker outside the Columbian museum staff who will appear in the course. His subject will be. "The Fer tilization of Flowers by Insects." Chancellor Strong of the University of Kansas, after his experience with the present legislature, expressed himself as follows: "The legislature is made up of unusually able and likeable men who have great interest in educational af fairs in general and the university in particular. Very many of them are in terested in the university because they look forward to sending their children here for their education." When County Commissioner Sterne was talking with Senator Miller, chair man of the ways and means commit tee, to have the state re-emburse the county of Shawnee for half the expense of building the macadam road on Sixth street in front of the ins::ne asylum. Senator Miller said: "Why should we. isn't the road already built?" The road has been built some months but the legislators could not verv well vote for brick turnpikes at Atchison and Leav enworth and refuse this, and they did not. Because of a number of complaints made that the street railway com pany was putting down only one layer of brick where the tracks are being torn up on Van Buren street, the city COFFEE does do work you don't suspect.

Only one layer of "brick is be ins used, but it. is upon a bed of con crete one foot thick r.nd a cushion of sand two inches thick, and according j to the city engineer practically fur- I nishes a better foundation than a two- 1 course layer of brick. Since the practical completion of the ne-.v manual training school it has , not been necessary to hold afternoon sessions to accommodate the high school students. The entire school body has heretofore never been as- ' sembled in the old hijrh school build- j ing at one time because a portion of the classes were held in the afternoon and the other in the forenoon. Yes- ! leraay. however, chapel exercises for the entire school body were hold in the auditorium, which has a seating capacity of approximately 900. All of the students could not "secure seats and about iOO were forced stand. This gives a eood idea of the attend ance at the high school .now reg istered. v The rally at the First- Method'st church on Thursday niRht was a dis tinct success. A review was made of the year s work. The treasurer's report showed a deficit of about J900 of enough money in the treasury to pay the ex penses of the last fiscal year. Discus sion was evoked as to the best way to make this up and keep out of debt. Rev. W. C. Kvans. the pastor outlined some of his plans for the year, which included a reirauguration of the cottage prayer meetings, a districting of the city and appointment of superintend ents fo as to ke?p track of the mem bers, and the holding of a memorial Sunday once each year for the departed members of the church. A large attend ance was present. Refreshments were served. A Sclsomc That Failed. Cottage Orove. Ore., March 19. The city marshal o? this piiice roccived a let ter purporting to be writteiv by John Flctrhtr, stating that the writer had de-cUU-d t.o commit suiel.le and telling the marshal where to nnd his body. Fletcher was found a;; Indicated with a bullet wound in hi:-: head, but alive. Develop ments tnd to show that he was shot by John BranLon, who, it is said, wrote the letter. The crime, it is alleged, was car ried out with a view to setting life insur ance of $S.c.W, payable to Branton at Fletcher's death. OX THE NEW BRIDGE.

A brief session of the streets and walks committee was held last night at the city building. The greater part of the business which came up for attention was of a minor nature. The Excelsior Coke and Gas company were granted the privilege of placing its 12-inch gas main which leads to North Topeka upon the temporary wooden approach which is being built at the Melan bridge preparatory to placing the permanent approach. The- recommendations of the city engineer for improvements in the way of additional catch basins and widen ing of the waterway of Biddle creek from Tenth avenue to Fourth street, were referred back to the city engi neer with the request that the approx imate cost of the improvements rec ommended be attached to the recom mendation. The city council will act upon the matter tonight at the ad journed session of the council. The ways and means committee was called together at the same time, through an error of the chairman, who was under the impression that the petition for the bond election of the Topeka, Eskridge and Council Grove interurban railway and the res olution for a bond election for the establishment of a city crematory had both been referred to that commit tee. Both petition and resolution had been referred to the judiciary com mittee, but the chairman, C. K. Hol liday, was in Chicago, so both com mittee meetings were called off. In the afternoon the committee ap pointed by the mayor at the last meet ing of the council went over the bond issues already sent in by Chas. Street, president of the Topeka Water com pany, to the1 city attorney. The com mittee also consulted with the city at torney as to the best manner in which the accounting of the waterworks company could be examined and the final transfer arrangements made. The special committee appointed by the mayor consisted of Councilmen Kutz, Hughes and Nellis.

It is reported that the smokers in Topeka are going to present a testi monial to Geo. W. Stansfield for as suming the agency of Wadsworth Bros.' Chicos, a high grade Havana filled cigar that sella for a nickel. Geo. W. Stansfield says he is per fectly satisfied, though, with the ap preciative "thank you's" he has had from lovers of a good cigar to whom he has recommended the Chico. It is one of the best smokes in his show case, and sells at a price so low ti'at any one can afford to smoke it. The price, however, is not the rea son why our leading lawyers, bankers, and business men call for. the Chicos. They buy it and smoke it because it is a good cigar. Try one yourself and join the Chico Club. An attempt to draft R. S. Van Sant as a candidate for the position of mayor of the metropolis of Oakland has re sulted in failure. Mr. Van Sant yester day refused to accept the nomination. A caucus was held in Oakland Wednes day evening and a number of citizens at that time presented the name of Van Sant as a candidate. Partisan politics does not enter into the situation and the attempt to bring out a candidate against F. A. Brigham,, who is the present mayor and up for renomination, is not based on that score but of some feeling of dissatisfac tion in certain quarters with his administration. Af the Crescent City Club. New. Orleans, March 10. Jockey Aubuchon rode the w inners of the last five races on the Crescent Jockey club's card. Lady Ellison was the only beaten favorite, there being no decided choice in the last race. There was but little contention in any of the eight races, Light Note being the only winner that was forced up, and in his case this was due to Martin's leisurely riding in the first part of the race. Weather cloudy, track heavy. Where Gilbert Stood. Senator Gilbert, the school teachf.r member of the senate, seemed to get on the right side of things by being for the bill for a general levy for common schools, for the child labor bill, for the state refinery, for the board of control, for the bill provid ing a way for the people to express their choice for United States senator and for the civil service bill. He was against the taxation bill which ex empted mortgages and against tha state fire warden bill. Will Elect Bate's Successor. Nashville, Tenn., March 10 The Ten nessee legislature will elect ft succes sor to the late Senator Bate on March 21, probably Governor Bennett McMil lan. The governor, who was General Bate's most active opponent during the last campaign, withdrew in favor of Senator Bate with the understanding should Bate retire he (McMillan) would become the candidate. Limits Working Day to 16 Hours. Jefferson City, Mo., March 10.
