CARPENTER, The Irrigation Export Is Given a Scor ing by Denver Post. Wichita, June 10. The Beason Bays: Prof. L. G. Carpenter, irrigation ex pert who has been the principal wit ness for Colorado in the Kansas-Colorado irrigation suit, is under fire. He was on his way down the Arkansas river and was soon to revisit Wichita when recalled to Colorado to appear before the state board of agriculture. Professor Carpenter was at Great Bend yesterday, where he received word to return to Denver. The Denver Post accuses the irriga tion expert of being- a "Pooh Bah" and lAe '!sue of last Tuesday stated mat he draws salary as state engineer $3,000; director of United States ex periment station, Fort Collins, $3,000: Kansas-Colorado irrigation expert, $3 -OuO; professor of engineering-, State Agricultural college, $2,500; total, 11.500 per annum. The Post learned, however, on fur their inquiry, that these figures were incorrect, for Professor Carpenter has not been state engineer for several months and he has not drawn salary as a professor at the Agricultural col lege for two years. While in Wichita on several occa sions, during the hearings in the ir rigation matter. Prof. Carpenter made many friends. He is a man of national reputation as an irrigation expert and though he is on the other side of the case, his Wichita friends are inclined to believe that he has been unjustly assailed at home. MUHfl MEDICALREFEREE Dr. Jj. 11. Munn Accents This Appoint I'roniThe Mutual Life of New York. Mr. Elon S. Clark, Manager of the Kansas agency of The Mutual Life In surance company of New York, an nounces the appointment of Dr. L. H. Munn. of this city, as Medical Referee for the Kansas agency and chief Medi cal Examiner at Topeka. This ar rangement has been under considera tion for over a year, and the doctor's consent was obtained on the occasion of a recent visit to Topeka by Dr. W. K. Porter, Assistant Medical Director from the Home Office. In connection with a recent post graduate course in surgery in Mew York city, Dr. Munn spent consider able time in the medical department fit the Company's home office, review ing his new and responsible duties. This arrangement will greatly facili tate the prompt issuance of policies through the Topeka agency and is a further indication of the modern methods employed by this great com pany to meet the demands of its rap idly increasing business. Mr. Clark mentions a steady in crease of business during- the spring months, notwithstanding the unusually long and severe winter just passed, and states that 1905 will probably equal, if not exceed, the production in 1904. which was the banner year of his agency, with a production of a new paid-for business slightly in ex cess of $2,500,000.

MAY BE CLYDE MILLER. Rumor That He Will Be Hoch's Pri vate Secretary. It is considered likely by the poli ticians that O. F. Billings of Marion will not be private secretary to Gov ernor Hoch, succeeding T. A. McNeal. While Governor Hoch had Mr. Bil lings under consideration, the deal is now believed to be all off. and Gover nor Hoch is hunting- for another man for the place. One of the men whose name is known to be under consideration is Clyde Miller of Osage City, who was active in the boss buster movement. It is said that political influences are being brought to bear to bring about Miller's appointment, while other con siderations of a personal nature might dictate some other selection. The ap pointment of a private secretary is supposed to be one of the jobs which the governor is allowed to fill on his own responsibility, the work being- of such a close personal nature. But it seems that even this little bit of pat ronage is so much needed by the poli ticians that they are trying to decide who shall be chosen for the place. STRUCK BY. A TRAIN. Edna Kellchr, Aged 10, Is Injured at Burlingame. Edna Kellehr, aged 10 years, is in the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe rail road hospital in this city. She was struck by a train near Burlingame last evening about 7 o'clock, receiving slight injuries. It is reported the lit tle, girl is not seriously hurt and that she will recover. The little eirl was valking along the track on the ties outside the rail when the accident oc curred. The engineer of train No. 116 claims he blew the whistle and that the little girl apparently paid no attention to the warning. The engineer says that when he saw the girl was not going to leave the track, he attempted to stop his train, but it was. too late. The. pilot of the engine struck her In the back, knocking her into the ditch be side the track. The train was stop ped in half a train length and she was brought to the company hospital at Topeka for medical care. HOW ABOUT DIVORCES? Question Whether the Statute of Limi tations Applies. A queer kind of a case was filed in the supreme court yesterday. It involves the Question of whether the statute of limitations can run on di vorce proceedings. Amanda Cullison brought suit in Stafford county against Joseph Culli son for a divorce. This was about five years ago. The suit was not pressed, and no divorce was granted, though the parties ceased to live to gether. A short time ago the suit was revived, and the lower court held that the statute of limitations had run on the charges which were made in the first suit. The case is appealed on the ground that the statute of limita tions does not apply to divorce pro ceedings. It would be a funny situation if a divorce should be rendered impossible provided the parties to an unhappy matrimonial affair said nothing about their troubles until the statute of lim itations had run against the charges.

John Rice Snapped the Weapon, but It Failed to Explode. John Rice, a bus driver, furnished some excitement at the Gaskill show ground last night, and was arrested by Special Officer Charles Miler on a charge of assault. Rice, who was intoxicated, knocked down an old man about 70 years of age, and then attacked I. M. Blitz, the jeweler. Blitz struck Rice, who re treated a few steps and drew a re volver. He snapped the weapon four times, but it failed to explode. . All the spectators in the vicinity were en dangered by the action, as he waved the revolver around promiscuously while pulling the trigger. Special Officer Miler arrested Rice, and then grabbed Will Hyde, a friend of Rice, who interfered and threatened the officer. The old man who was first assaulted could not be found after the arrest was made. The police raided the "Hoot Owl" joint at 5:30 last evening, and arrest ed Roy Daniels, Will Briggs and George Wilson as keepers of the place. The "Hoot" has been one of the most persistent joint-restaurants in the red light district. "THE KAW" IS OUT TODAY. As Good Xatured and Original as of Vore. Today the second volume of "The Kaw" was issued by the students of Washburn college. It is a book of 128 pages, handsomely illustrated through out with half tone cuts and excellent drawings by the students of the art school. The editors of the book are selected from the senior and Junior classes. Their names are as follows: Editors-in-chief, Maud Neyhart, '05, and Lucy Dickinson, 06; associate editors, Helen Ingham '05, Charlie White '05, Hila Wood '06, Ray Doane '06; business man agers, Herman Carkhuff '05, Eldon Tice '06. The people who have done the art work for the book are Arthur McCoy, David L. Stewart, P. P. Flenniken, E. Robert Honska, Nina Marie Stokes, Mabel Thomas. The book is dedicated to President Normal Plass, "in appreciation of his great work for Washburn college." Pictures are printed of the members of the faculty of the school of liberal arts, the medical school, and the fine arts department. In the law department, Dean Conant's picture is the only one printed. Pictures of all of the members of the senior and junior classes are printed, also of all of the big literary societies and fraternities which abound at the college. Much attention is de voted to athletics. The usual amount of "roasts" and good natured fun is included in the volume, and the whole comprise a book which all the old students of the col lege, as well as those now attending school, will like to own. AXOTHER FLAW IS FOUXD. That Crawford Court Bill Having a Hard Time. Senator Martin, of Bourbon coun ty, While in Topeka a few days ago, was looking up the record of the bill providing for the creation of a new judicial district of Crawford county and placing Bourbon and Linn coun ties in a district by themselves. Senator Martin claims that the bill was tampered with after being passed. He says that the bill as passed pro vided that the new court should meet four times a year in Fort Scott January, April, June, and October. An examination of the bill, however, revealed the fact that the word April has been scratched out. May substi tuted, and June scratched out alto gether. However, it is rather doubtful whether the bill is valid in any way, because it received only 83 votes in the house instead of the necessary 84. It was passed in an omnibus along with a lot of bills which did not re quire a two-thirds vote for passage, and no one seemed to notice that a two-thirds vote was necessary. RACES A FIZZLE. Matinee at Hutchinson Proved a Fake and Was Called Off. Hutchinson, June 10. The racing matinee came to an abrupt end when the Fair association took the bull by the horns and declared the meeting off, and canceled all entries for the races yet to be run. The action "was radical, but the condition justified It. The Fair association is to be thoroughly com mended for pruning out a string of leeches that were into a game to skin people on the race entertainments. The races Thursday afternoon were simply awful. Everyone who went out was disgusted and made a vigorous protest over the actions of the horsemen. The Fair association was not to blame. It was on the part of the horsemen themselves. The association had ar ranged for three days of bona fide rac ing. The prizes were adequate. The horse owners were supposed to have square intentions in entering. Probably most of them did. There were some who did not. On them is the odium of calling off the remaining events. TWO MEN AFTER THE JOB. That of Stenographer to Board of Control In Demand. Fred Knapp and William Pitts are candidates for the job of stenographer for the state board of control. Knapp was chief clerk of the last house and Pitts was reading- clerk of the senate. The job of stenographer pays $9 00 per year, and the board of control wants somebody in the position who is not only a stenographer but who can keeo books as well. The members of the board called on Governor Hoch yesterday to find out what rooms they will have as signed to them at the state house. It is likely that they wnl be given the rooms now occupied by the Goss col lection of birds in the basement of the east wing. A White City Wedding. White City, Kan., June 10. Miss Gus sie Taggart, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Taggart, of this city, was married here to Prof. S. E. Bedford, of Baker university, Baldwin. The ceremony was performed by Dr. L- H. Murlin, president of Baker university, assisted by the Rev. W. A. Brown, who has un til recently been pastor of the American church in Manila- Instrumental and vocal music was furnished during the evening by Miss Church, of Ottawa; Prof. H. E. Harpster, of Baldwin, and Harry Stanley, of Wichita, Guests were present from Baldwin, Osage City, To peka, Wichita and Ottawa, The Gaskill shows so from here to Wichita. State Auditor Seth Wells went to Erie today. Monday In the district court will be devoted to motions. At the Railroad T. M. C. A. 2,900 baths were given last month, but not to one man. .

Judge Dana will adjourn the district court about the middle of July for the remainder of the summer. Things are looking very desolate around the Copeland. The women delegates have all gone home. The Washburn students had a fare well rally last night on the steps of the new library. They sang college songs. Strawberries of the home grown variety are almost out of the market. The dry, hot weather has finished them. There was no Commercial club meeting on last night. The last meet ing for the summer' will be held June 23. One Topeka jewelry firm sold thir teen dozen Topeka souvenir spoons in a single day to Royal Neighbor dele gates this w eek. Old Washburn students are begin ning to drift in for the fortieth anni versary festivities which will be in full blast next week. The ball same between Leaven worth and Topeka will commence at 2:30 o'clock on Sunday afternoon at Association park. The Sunday school of the First Pres byterian church will hold the annual picnic Wednesday afternoon at the Re form school grounds. There is such a resemblance between City Attorney Togo Drenning and Charles Bower, official reporter of the district court, that some people get them mixed when they are In court to gether. The three members of the state board of control, Schermerhorn, Bow man and Elliott, are all baseball fans, and expect to attend the games regu larly when they get settled down in Topeka. Not discouraged by his slight error of judgment on the Springfield game, Malon Burget, the deaf mute baseball and election prophet, says that To peka will win the game today against Leavenworth, provided they try. It is a rule as thoroughly established that a camel shall be named "Holy Moses" as that a parrot shall be named "Polly" or a canary bird "Dick" and the camel with the Gaskill shows furnishes no exception. The elephant is named "Nellie." The large and handsome maple trees which have ornamented the cor ner of Tenth and Jackson for so many years are beinjr cut down to make a place for the new state print ing plant. Why couldn't they have been spared? J. C. Brown, chief clerk at the state penitentiary, filed his report for May at the state house yesterday. It shows that there are now 1,200 prisoners in the pen, the largest number by thirty in the history of the institution. About one-third of the prisoners are from Oklahoma. Monday is an off day for the White Sox. Tuesday they' will be at Joplin to open a series of three games. On Friday they will start a series at Springfield. Next Monday is another rest day. and on next Tuesday Guthrie will be here for a series followed by Oklahoma City. Lincoln Post No. 1, G. A. R., this city, w ill hold a special meeting under special dispensation, tonight, at their hall, No. 119 East Sixth street, to re ceive new members and reinstate old ones. All members and candidates have been requested to be on hand early, and help along the Denver en campment boom. A Topeka man who went to the street fair the other night, stood outside the Ping-Pong girls' show, watched the bally-hoo a while and decided to go in. He was late and missed a part, and, as it happened, the most sensational part of the performance. The next night he took a girl friend and suggested that they go to see the Ping-Pong girls. This time they were early enough to see the whole show which proves that patience and perseverance are their own re ward. But the young man had told the girl, in suggesting that they see this performance, that he had been there the night before, so how is he to square himself? Bryan Gives Out More Money. Ripon, Wis., June 10. W. J. Bryan has given $500 of the Bennet fund which he holds in trust for the edu cation of poor college students, to Ripon college. It is expected that the fund will be largely increased by return payments from students who are assisted. Mortons Sail for Europe. New York, June 10. Senator Wm. B. Allison, Congressman R. G.

Judean of the This morning while putting up a crate of berries for the winter, a thought came to me. In making- some calls, I found Mrs. A concerned in a trip to Catalina island. Mrs. B had worked herself al most sick in trying to get off for the hills of Old New England. Mrs. C had not been outside the house for a long time, but she had herself and two children ready for a summer on the Beach. Mrs. D would soon be off to Colorado; the heat oi Monday and Tuesday had just prostrated her. Mrs. E was g-oing to New Mexico in August, but her heart and hands were full of preparation for it. Others were go ing for only a day or week or two, "just for a change," yet even they were "so busy getting everything in shape to leave." This morning this bit of interesting active life passed through my mind, and I thought how full and beautiful life was for us all, and how happy and thankful we ought to be! We all have God's greatest blessing things we are obliged to do and we may all have his greatest privilege doing something we like to do. While I pondered over the good time the folks who were going away would have, there came creeping in the thought, how few A, B, and C's there are people who can go away and "be something and do something" compared with the X, Y and Z's who must stay at home, either through lack of means, or inclination perhaps both concerning whom nobody knows or cares; and I said to the jars I was filling, "I believe there are lots of us who would like to do something through the summer, that would help make the warm days seem less long and it is a fact, the thermometer never gets as high while one is doing some thing, as it does at resting time if somebody would only make the sug gestion," and then there seemed to speak to me that Monitor, which I often hear, sometimes willingly, some times unwillingly, "Why don't you make it and find out?" My answer was, "If Mr. MacLennan will let me offer it through the Jour nal, I'll try." His answer was, "You may have as much space as you need." I offer the following: Let everyone buy a book for her own, and read through the sweet old story of "The life of Jesus Christ." Let us read it in nine sections, or parts one for each week. For ex ample, let us read: First week The Thirty Years of Private Life. Second week The Opening Events of Christ's Ministry. Third week The Early Ministry. Fourth week First Period Galilean Ministry. Fifth week Second Period of the Galilean Ministry. Sixth week Third Period of the Galilean Ministry. Seventh week The Perean Ministry. Eighth week The Passion Week. Ninth week The Forty Days. For the people who anticipate tak ing up the study this winter, thi3 would be a great preparation; it would be delightful to those who have just gone over the text; it would be helpful to anyone. I would read one of the standard authors Edersheim, Geike. Farrar. Were you even to take up Edersheim, unabridged longest of them all it would mean only a little over one hundred pages a week. The abridged, and smaller books would not be more than thirty or fifty pages. If your time is too full to read for information and yet you would live the story through, the best book to get is "The Story of Jesus Christ" by Elizabeth Stuart Phelps. The next best, and least expensive, "That Sweet Story of Old" by Margaret Sangster. It is going to be warm it always has been but even on warm days it is pleasant inside the wails of our churches. Now, if you like my suggestion of giving yourself something to think about through the summer, it would give me pleasure to have you tell me so, and if fifty people let me know that they will read this story thought fully, systematically, according to out line. I will take my Lantern to the First Presbyterian church every Tues day afternoon from 3:30 to 4:30, and show the pictures covering the sub ject matter read. This invitation is for everyone who loves this story. There will be no ex pense whatever to it, but I would make one restriction, I do not want anj'body who will not read; my pur pose is not entertainment, and to get something vou must give something. "God helps those who help them selves." If we take up the pictures we must read the story. Call me up by telephone, or write me a line, or call to see me Thursdays only no mat ter whether you know me or not. The Christ story has no creed, and we meet in the First Presbyterian church because it has been fitted up with the necessary electrical apparatus to help to better tell the story of Christ. Do not deny yourself any op portunity to improve because it doesn't happen tp hang out its colors over your tag. Do you want to do that which is right because it is right, and because you want to be a Christian? Let me hear from you if you are interested, bv Thursday evening, that I may announce through the State Journal of next Saturday just what we will do. Yours for Something that will help us meet the petty trials of everv day. MRS. C. F. MENNINGER. Topeka, Kan., 1251 Topeka avenue. TO THE SEASIDE. Lake Shore Makes Low Rate With Stopover at New Tork.

The German gov ernment's draft of its views on the proposed commercial treaty with the United States i3 in course of prepara tion for submission to Washington in July. It is based upon the reports of the German chambers of commerce and other commercial authorities. The Duesseldorf chamber, one of the most influential in the Rhenish Westphalian manufacturing district, sent Prince von Buelow a memorial in which these fundamental principles were laid down: "First, the old Prussian treaty of 18 2S must either be formally can celled or extended to the German em pire with binding force for the. United States. "Second, if that treaty be cancelled it must be replaced by a treaty of comity and navigation between the two coun tries. Among other things such a treaty must regulate general naviga tion and commerce between them, de fine the rights of the, citizens of one country while stopping in the other and prepare the way for an extension of copyright arrangements and the promotion of postal intercourse. "Third, a tariff treaty with the United States must be sought in which one concession shall be balanced by another fully or approximately equal ing it." Section four calls attention to sec tion four of the Dingley law permit ting reciprocity concessions for only two years and expresses doubt as to whether the United States government is in a position to make a treaty at all without further legislation and wheth er the United States government could get from congress the right to con clude a treaty for a longer period than five years and then demands that in case the treaty negotiations lead to no practical purposes that the German general customs be applied to imports from the United States. Section five suggests that some al leviation to the export business of each country could be secured by the United States continuing the lower rates of duties on German good3 in the list provided for by the Saratoga agreement to which Germany would answer with equivalent compensations but not with treaty rates throughout as conceded to other countries. Section six reads: "Whatever arrangements are made must contain provision for supplying free of cost information about tariff matters, for the publication of official lists of goods with regular supple ments and for the settlement of tariff differences by arbitration. The treaty must also provide for contesting tariff decisions through diplomatic channels and for the free circulation of samples of goods and each country must pledge itself to accept the findings of the scientific bodies of the other state as to the compensation of food products." Printers Expect Eight Hour Day. Chicago, June 10. Members of the International Typographical union, whose convention in the interest of tho eight hour day for printers is in ses sion here, are hopeful of carrying their point, according to President Lynch. It is desired that the new day shall go into effect January 1. 1906. Twenty-seven delegates from twenty unions from seven states are at the convention. Commencing Monday, May 15, a new lo cal passenger train will be put in service between Junction City and Ellis. Kan., to run daily except Sunday, leaving Junction City about 7 a. m., and leaving Ellis about 2 p. m., arriving at Junction City about 7:30 p. m. V. I. Miller Lumber Co. 213 East Sixth Street.
