Accordingly Attendance at Democratic Judicial Convention Was Small. Excelsior Springs, Mo., Hay 22. The Democratic judicial convention to name two judges for the state supreme court met here today.

There were fewer delegates at to day's convention than at any time for many years, about one-half of the number selected having sent proxies. The railways for the first time in years declined to furnish delegates with passes, and this was said to be the cause of the small attendance. The two judges to be named today fire for a long and a short term. Be fore the convention met it was pre dicted that Judge A. M. Woodson, of St. Joseph, would be nominated for the long term by acclamation and that Judge W. W. Graves, of Butler, would secure the short term nomination on the first ballot.

The present schedule of these trains takrs from two hours to two hours nd ten minutes. This faster time is made jo3s1hle by the completion of the Union T'aolnc double track between Topeka and J-Cansas City, which is used by the Rock Island.

LIKE FINDING MONEY. A. T. Waggoner, 731 Kansas avenue, the popular druggist, is making an offer that is just like finding money, for he is selling a regular 50 cent bot tle of Howard's celebrated specific for the cure of constipation and dyspepsia at half-price. In addition to this large discount he agrees to return the money to any purchaser whom the specific does not cure. It is quite unusual to be able to buy fifty-cent pieces for a quarter, but that is what this offer really means, for it is only recently, through the solicitation of Druggist Waggoner that this medi cine could be bought for less than fifty cents, he urged the proprietors to al low him to sell it at this reduced price for a little while, agreeing to sell a cer tain amount. The result has justified l-ia good judgment, for the sale has jfceen something remarkable. RESTORING CAR SERVICE. Overhead Trolley Lines May Run on Market Street, Frisco. San Francisco, May 2 2.

May 2 2. The Pres byterian general assembly today voted to authorize Moderator Hunter Corbett to name a committee of 10 ministers and 11 elders, one of whom shall be from the Cumberland Presbyterian church in case union is effected, to draft a plan for consolidating all the boards of the church into one organ ization to be divided into executive, legislative and judicial departments. A resolution was offered by Dr. K. Trumbull Lee of Philadelphia, memor ializing congress to stop appropriations for cectarian purposes. This is the outgrowth of the recent charges in con gress that Catholics and Lutherans are leceiving substantial assistance from the government in their religious work among the Indians. The Presbyterian church maintains a lobbyist in Wash ington in the person of Rev. Wilbur F. Crafts, and to hiin will fall the duty of pressing the memorial in congress. The resolution was referred to the com mittee on bills and overtures and it will undoubtedly be adopted by the assem bly. The assembly today voted to com bine with the Hungarian Reform church and the Reform church in the United States, German, in Hungarian religious work.

C accusing tVie home board of the Presbyterian chur?h north, with offering southern churchrs financial aid to persuade them to change their affiliation. The southern church asked that a committee be appoi;it?d for an investigation. The north church replied by telegraph that the horne board was guilty of no such action and refused to appoint the committee. Dr. tdward S. Young of Pittsburg, Pa., stated that in the offering of r.-any overtures having to do with benevolences and the support of members in sickness, he sees the ultimate organization of a insurance society, whereby the assess ments are made by the church boards ; and the distribution benefits and prem j iums conducted by them.

Drunkenness has of late been charg ed in England against the students of the University of Oxford. Of this charge, Percival Farrar, an Oxford man, said in Detroit: "Now and then young men drink too much at Oxford, but to accuse them generally of drunkenness is quite un pardonable and talse. "Such an accusation Is to my mind absurd, like the accusation of idleness made against the students of the great German -universities. "Attendance at lectures is not com pulsory in Germany, and there are all sorts of yarns about the students' idle ness. They say that a young man in Heidelberg once approached another young man and asked: " 'Where are the university build ings';' The second young man replied: " 'I really don't know. I am a stud ent here myself.' " Kansaus Appointed. Washington, May 22. The following Kansas appointments have been sent t.j the senate: Consul Charles C. Eberhardt, Kan sas, at Iquitos, Peru.
