THE TOPEKA DAILY STATE JOURNAL MONDAY NIGHT.
Fifty Years the Standard CREAM BAKING POWDER A Cream of Tartar Powder Made From Grapes No Alum DR. BLAKESLEY SPEAKS. Veteran Pastor Returns and Talks of Old Times. Two of the most notable church meetings which ever took place in To peka occurred on Sunday at the First Congregational church. The congre gation has been celebrating its fiftieth anniversary and closed yesterday with A special service by Rev. Linus Blakes- ley, a former pastor of the church, and one of the men closely identified with Topeka's history. At the morning service Rev. Blakes ley told reminiscences of the former days of the church, going back to its foundation by the pioneers of Topeka. For 29 years he served as the pastor of the Congregationalists of this city, leaving in 1899 to be succeeded by Dr. D. M. Fisk. Dr. Fisk also spoke. The church was crowded to Its doors. Relative to the Topeka church, Dr. Blakesley said the following in his morning sermon: Only a little time ago I came here a young man. I was regarded as a ten derfoot from the east. Today I find myself here a veteran and the pion eers are mostly departed. The Bod wells, McVicars, Tefts, Bowkers, Blakes, Jewells, Butterfields, Smiths, Bates, Evarts, Farnsworths, who were active when I came, none of them are here. Scores of church leaders since have come and gone. But the church Is here In evidence, enjoying a vigor ous life and doing her consecrated work. And what else could be expected of her? She was blest with good lineage dating back to the Pilgrim fathers; and heredity tells. An honorable his tory follows as a matter of course. She had her birth in stormy days. Settlements were sparse. The resources of this great territory were yet unde veloped and undiscovered. It was a pivotal time In our national history. The rolitical leaders then In power began to see that pro-slavery ascend ancy In the republic was threatened. More slave territory was absolutely needed. Shall Kansas be free or slave was a vital question. The bona fide settlers were overwhelmingly for free S dom. But on election days armed ruffians from Missouri by thousands invaded the state and took possession of the polls by violence. The results of these political outrages were uni formly accepted at Washington. Those times of anarchy, when the ballot box was dishonored, free speech sup pressed, free men imprisoned and United States troops were used in the attempt to force slavery upon an un willing people, constitute a page of our national history at which every patriot may well blush. In the midst of those troublous times this church had its birth and early history. She was tried by pov erty, tested by hardship, yet her found ers were men of courage and faith, and gave character to the infant or ganization. In the evening Dr. Blakesley spoke more particularly about the little inci dents of his early pastorate in Topeka. The principal theme upon which he dilated was the fact that 35 years ago last night, on the very same corner where the First Congregational church now stands, the first song service in Topeka was held. Some people now prominent in Kansas affairs were there. Dr. F. S. Crane, George W. Crane, John Marshall, J. W. Stagg Prof. Slie, Prof. Henry Worrall and William Griffith were some of the members of the orchestra. The elder Crane played a cello, his son played the double-bass, John Marshall played a cornet, William Griffith played the violin. Prof. Slie and Prof. Worrall took care of the organ. There were others, but Dr. Blakesley could not re call them. "It was the first song service ever held In Topeka," he said. "It was greatly attended. Some of the people In the city may have thought of it something as did the old Scotchman when he attended the Episcopal church and saw the choir robed in surplices. "How did you like it," was asked of the Highlander. "It is all right," was his reply, "but hardly fit for Sunday." Though Dr. Blakesley spoke only a short while in the evening his address was full of pathos, humor and history. Many of his old friends were in the audience. Standing room was at a premium. The seats were entirely in adequate, even the Sunday school room being crowded to Its very walls People were sitting on the window ledges and on the organ rostrum It T,a Sjeat tribute to the speaker, and Incidentally a very personal one tr, i??"5 slf"'ice was given last night.

Kelleher, of Burlingame, whose pockets were picked on a Santa Fe train at the Topeka depot about a week ago, is about $15.75 ahead of the game at present. When Kelleher was robbed he turned upon the gang and caused the arrest of two suspects. He walked up town with the policeman who had one of the alleged robbers In custody, and while they were moving along the ' suspect said to Kelleher: "J don t want to go to jail, and I'll pay you $11 (the amount Kelleher claimed to have lost) if you will let me go." He pulled out the money and handed it to Kelleher, who took it and then said: "I will take the money and prosecute you too." The policeman warned Kelleher that he should not take the money from the suspect, but the old man hung ontoit like grim death: After the commotion at the depot a crippled man found Kelleher's pocket book under a seat, and returned it to him. The contents had not been dis turbed, and so Kelleher is ahead $11 and his fees in court as a witness. The suspects gave bond and disappeared, but Kelleher still has the $11 given him for value not received by the ! alleged criminal, and his pocketbook . was returned to him by the officers thia morning. The policeman who arrested the ! crooks says that Kelleher offered a reward of $5 for the return of his pocketbook. This morning the police man suggested that as he was about 1 $15 ahead Kelleher should feel dis posed to give the crippled but honest; finder of the purse the reward. Kelle- j her refused, and carefully counting1 the money In the pocketbook went away without saying "thank you" to the finder, who was present when the purse was returned. MORE GOLD AND SILVER An Increase of the Output of Precious Metals for the Tear 1904. Washington, Nov. 20. A report issued by the geological surveys says: The production of gold In the 1'nited Siates during 1904 amounted to ZMWTJ) fine ounces, valued at $80,836,648. This rep resents an increase of $7,243,948 over the production of 1903. The largest previous output, in 1902, amounted to $80,000,000. The production of silver in 1904 amount ed to 55.999.S64 fine ounces, valued at $32, 035 378. This represents an increase cf 1,699.864 ounces over the production of 1903, and an increase in value of $2,713,378. The record output of silver in 1892, amounting to 63,500,000 fine ounces, the report says, has not been reached in late years, nor has the commercial value attained the figures of that year, which amounted to $82,101,000. The principal sources of increase in the gold production compared with that of r.w, xne report says, are easily traceable. Colorado added nearly $2,000,000 to her production of 1903, mSst of this amount coming from the mines of Cripple Creek. Nevada's output increased about the same amount, chiefly by reason of the phenomenal yeilds of the Goldfield mines. The greatest progress is reported in California, whose production exceeds that of 1903 by J2.300.000, the increase being caused partly by a strong development of the quartz mining industry and to a less degree by the activity of the dredgers. Alaska and Arizona show increased yields amounting respectively to $476,983 and $748,708. A number of states show I smaller increases, while Utah. Montana j and Washington have less gold to their credit in 1904 than in 1903. The increase of value in the production or silver or yd, 13,17s is somewhat evenly distributed among the various states and territories, but is to some extent due to the better price of stiver obtained. Colorado leads with an increase of $970, 320. California. Idaho, Montana, Nevada and T'tah also added considerable value to their silver production. FOUGHT FOR FREE RIDE. A Boy Is Mortally Wounded in Battle With Officers. San Pablo, Cal., Nov. 20c. Joseph A. Willey, an Oakland boy 18 years of age, was mortally wounded last night by a bullet fired by John Boquenet, a local constable, after a battle la which revol vers were freely used, with the consta ble and Southern Pacific train officials at this station. After being wounded he staggered across the railroad track and was run down by a train just pulling in to the station. Willey boarded the northbound train out of Oakland by jumping on the front of the baggage car while it was in mo tion. When the train stopped at Stege, Brakeman Reeves went forward to force him from the train. Conductor Wells went with him. Engineer Aitken climb ed from his cab over the tender to as sist if necessary. Before they got close to him Willey pulled from his pocket two pistols and pointed them at the men and fired at them. A bullet whizzed by Well's ear and caused him to beat a hasty re treat. Aitken ran back to his cab. fol lowed by a bullet. Willey then ordered the engineer to pull out and threatened to kill him if he refused, and the train was started for San Pablo. Here the constable, who had been warned by wire, made an attempt to capture Willey, who defied him. and the battle began anew. After a number of shots had been ex changed Willey. who had two revolvers, dropped mortally wounded and staggered over the track, where he was run down by the incoming train.

Offers to Pay $700 Sheriff Expense to Be Released From Bond. The county commissioners are in re ceipt of a communication from David Chiles, a farmer living near Tecumseh, who signed David Brown's bond for $1,000 asking that he be released from the bond upon the payment of the ex penses incident to his recapture. Brown is the negro who. with a com panion, assaulted two stockmen from Texas and beat them nearly to death on the Melan bridge last winter, for which his pal is now serving a long term in the penitentiary. After the conviction of his partner in crime Brown fled from the country and was apprehended in Vancouver, B. C. and brought home last week by Sheriff Lucas. The trip after this man is the longest one ever made by a sheriff of this county and took him almost across the continent and into English territory. The expense of the trip will be about $700. and it is these expenses which the bondsman wants to assume to secure his release from the $1,000 bond. The commissioners are in clined to look with favor upon the proposition and will probably ask the county attorney to accept this amount as this will relieve the county from the costs of the pursuit and capture. Louis Bergman, Chief Clerk. Louis H. Bergman, who has been in charge of the Atchison. Topeka & Santa Fe passenger office at Lawrence, Kan., has been appointed chief clerk in the office of Charles L. Seagraves, the new colonization agent of the com pany. Mr. Seagraves' headquarters are In Chicago and Mr. Bergman will leave for there at once to enter upon his new duties. HOCH GETS DETECTIVES Will Use Them to Help Solve Kansas City Liquor Question. W. R. Stubbs and Governor E. W. Hoch now patronize the Thiel Detective agency of Kansas City in their efforts to find out the truth about the Kansas City, Kan., lid. They have just re ceived a report from this agency to the effect that just at present the lid is on, but, that it is likely -to slip off most any time. The employment of the Thiel detec tives to investigate the situation was suggested to the governor by Mr. Stubbs and is said to have been re ceived with approval. At any rate, Mr. Stubbs dickered with the company and an "operative" which is the :.modern name of a detective by the name of Duffy was set to work to find out the truth. J. E. Payne, manager of the Thiel agency, transmits his report to Mr. Stubbs with the following letter: "In compliance with your order to our Mr. J. W. Ayres, I had an operative put in three days seeing what could be done in Kansas City, Kan. I forward you herewith the report, and from present conditions I did not think you would want the expense continued, as it is almost positively certain that the gam blers and saloon keeners are on the run from Kansas City, Kan., at the present time. Whatever improper con duct has been indulged in by officials is, no doubt, discontinued for the pres ent, and the present conditions will, no doubt, be maintained for some time. It is possible, however, that later on it may be necessary to ascertain Jl'hat is being done. I hope that my action in discontinuing the work will meet with your approval." 1 The report made to Mr. Stubbs by the agency reads as follows: "Operative E. J. Duffy arrived in Kansas City, Mo., November 13, and being instructed as to the information desired in Kansas City, Kan., .went to the latter city and endeavored to get acquainted among the right people in the right localities. "Tuesday, November 14, operative finding the joints closed, cultivated the acquaintance of drug store clerks along Minnesota avenue and was informed that the town" had never been closed up as tight as it is now, and that the joint keepers and gamblers were thoroughly scared. The state had appointed a spe cial attorney and from all the informa tion obtainable he meant business. Operative noticed that several of the joints had rent signs on the windows and that the back bar had been re moved, and on trying the doors of each place he found them all locked. Opera tive had hoped to beemployed as a bar keeper, he being competent to do such work, but no opportunity presented it selffor hi mto accomplish his purpose. "Operative went to Kansas City, Mo., and hunted up a man named Wright, who keeps a saloon, and from whom it was hoped Operative could get some information. Wright is as sociated in business with a man named Gregory in the Orient hotel) Opera tive found both these men there, and after several rounds of drinks asked if there was any way of getting a po sition as bartender. They knew of no vacancy. Operative then asked what the chances were in Kansas City, Kas. Wright and Gregory each said that all the places there had quit business. Gregory told Operative that he had heard that while the saloons were run ning that the policemen on the best collected the hush money from the joints and cut it in two with the chief of police. Operative found, however, that Gregory only furnished this infor mation from common talk, and had no knowledge of any specific action. They also stated that Ben Levy had a poolroom across the state line, and it was supposed that he gave up money to run the place. It Is the talk among the saloonkeepers in Kansas City, Mo., that the joints in Kansas City, Kas., will remain closed. A determined effort has been made to close them, without success, but now that they have a special attorney everybody is afraid of him. Operative arranged with Wright and Gregory to accom pany him to Kansas City, Kas., the next day. "Wednesday, November 15, Opera tive met Wright and Gregory at the Orient hotel at 10 a. m., but did not succeed in getting them away from there until 2:15 p. m. All three then went to Kansas City, Kas., and stopped at the poolroom of a man named Carey. It is one block from the state line and is running wide open. Operative, Wright and Gregory conversed with a number of people, and they said that Carey had a license from the city to conduct the poolroom and also owns the property of the block in which the poolroom is situ ated. While walking around town Gregory met several bartenders that he knew, who had been working in Kansas City, Kas. "They were out of employment, and stated that the saloon business was off, and that there would be no more open- saloons, but after things got quiet there would be plenty of places to get a drink on the quiet; but nobody would take any chances now, for they were afraid of the special attorney, who cannot be reached. They also stated the United States government had taken a hand in it to save the fixtures for the different brewers. Op erative and his companions visited the saloons on the state line, where rounds of drinks were purchased. The pro prietors all seemed to be glad that the joints were closed, for it made better business for them. They did not be lieve that the saloons would ever again be open in Kansas City, Kas., and the only way that drinks could be obtained would be through blind tigers. From the standpoint of the saloonkeepers, business seemed to be very dull in Kansas City, Kas. They said it would kill the town, but the drug stores would soon be doing a rushing business. All the men, who were interested in the joints running, condemned the special attorney, and everything indicates that he is a faith ful officer." THEY DID NOT APPEAR, Pickpockets Who Operated on Santa Fe Train Still Absent. The case of Robert Blanchard and George Thomas who are charged with picking the pockets of an old man on one of the Santa Fe trains a week or so ago was called in the city court this morning and they did not appear. Their attorney waived a preliminary hearing in their behalf. The trial will not come up until the January term of the district court and in the mean time they are out on a $500 bond signed by H. A. Hodgins. It is said by those who are posted on criminal records that at least one of these men belong to a gang of men who have been working the trains out of Kansas City for years, and that he is one of the smoothest men in the business. The prediction is freely made that when the time comes for trial the men will not appear if the case looks too strong for them to beat, and that they will permit their bonds to be forfeited.

Prince Charles of Denmark Accepts the Norwegian Kingship. Copenhagen, Nov. 20. The throne of Norway was formally tendered to Prince Charles of Denmark this morning by a deputation of members of the Nor wegian parliament and was accepted by King Christian in behalf of his grand son. The brief ceremony in the pal ace recaled the similar event in 1863 when the throne of Greece was present ed to Prince George of Denmark. The function today lasted only twenty min utes but the scene was brilliant as it was attended by all the princes and princesses and their suites, the diplo matic corps, including the American minister, Mr. O'Brien, and the high court officials. President Gerner, in a speech lasting five minutes, invited Prince Charles to become king of Norway and King Christian with some brevity accepted the offer. The old kins was much af fected as he blessed and embraced his grandchildren. King Haakon VII and Queen Maud. The close ' of the cere mony was signalled by the firing of a royal salute. An enormous oVowd gath ered in front of the palace and gave a rousing reception to the new king and queen as they left the palace in a gilded state chariot. POVERTY PARADE. London Poor Bitterly Condemn Char, ity as Measure of Relief. London, Nov. 20. There was an other "poverty parade" in the streets of London this afternoon. Some five to 6,000 unempjloyed men and a sprinkling of women marched along the Thames embankment to Hyde park where they listened to speeches and adopted reso lutions condemning charity as a cure for lack of employment and demanding the summoning of parliament to initiate work of national utility. Red- flags were seen and banners bearing such de vices as "curse your charity; we want work" and "there is a limit to .human endurance," indicated the temper of the processionists. The march, however, was quite orderly and the strong force of police on duty had little to do. TEACHERS AT STERLING.

Minneapolis Sails From Cherbourg. Cherbourg, Nov. 20. The United States cruiser Minneapolis sailed from here today, a furious storm having de layed her earlier departure. Tourist Cars Popular. The idea that an inferior class of people patronize the tourist sleepers is an error. On many trips only the best class of travelers are found. They are merely men and women of good sense who would ratner travel to California in this manner and save a snug sum of money to be used elsewhere.
