Elliott Says Demands for In crease Grow Daily. "Washington, Oct. 24. In his annual "report Brigadier General Elliott, commandant of the marine corps, calls attention to the necessity for an in crease in the command and enlisted per sonnel of the corps, and says the de mands for both officers and men are 3aily on the increase. He states that unless prompt action is taken in this matter by congress during its coming session he -will be unable to carry out the directions of the secretary of the navy whth regard to details, both C"hore and afloat and the efficiency of the corps will suffer materially. Genera.! Elliott says that the provis ions of the general order of the depart ment by which enlisted men of the Rrmy are entitled to campaign badges for services ashore "in Cuba, Porto Rico, and the Philippine islands during ser tain perioos and for service ashore with the Pekin relief expedition during the boxer rebellion, be made applicable to the men of the marine corps who were at that time serving with the army. lie said the barracks at Mare Island, Cal., are unsafe, inadequate and obso lete In design and construction. The sanitary condition is bad and he rec ommends $300,000 for new barracks and 550,000 for officers' quarters. The report also states that the accommodations for the marines at the naval station, Cavite, P. I., are not only unsanitary and in adequate, but conduce to discontent and dissatisfaction as the ordinary comforts are net granted to the men. He submits en estimate of $75,000 for the improve ment of the grounds and the building cf barracks. An estimate of $100,000 is Euhiniited for the construction of bar racks and officers' quarters at the navy yard at Charleston, S. C. General El liott urges the necessity for the imme diate construction of proper marine bar racks on the isthmus of Panama to fa cilitate contentment and especially nec essary for sanitary reasons. General Elliott says that all the pub lic buildings of the marine corps, in cluding those recently constructed, can be replaced by new buildings at a cost of not more than $1,500,000. General El liott says he appreciates the justice of the recommendation made by the secre tary of the navy last year that the commandant of the marine corps be given the rank of major general. The report says that under the pres ent modes and rates of recruiting it Is believed that the marine corps will be recruited to its full strength before the end of the present calendar year. General Elliott states that as soon as the condition of the corps will permit, it is the intention to increase the ma rine contingent in the Philippines to a total of 1,600 men, which Is the num ber recommended by the general board of the navy and approved by the de partment. There are 38 officers and 1, ZftO enlisted men now in the islands. opinion of the supreme court concern ing the validity of forfeiture notice not executed by the sheriff In strict com pliance with the law. LlAY COfE TO TOPEKi American Gas Stove Company Talks of Locating Plant Here. There is a possibility of the Amer ican Ga,s Stove company establishing a plant In this city. This fact was communicated to the Commercial club today in a letter from. W. H. Jones, the president of the company, whose headquarters are at St. Joseph, Mo. Mr. Jones wrote that his company was looking for a location for a large plant, and that he desired informa tion concerning the railroad facilities, price of fuel, in this city, and also as to whether or not there were tracts of land of from twenty to forty acres in close proximity to the city at a rea sonable price and available for the establishment of a large manufactur ing plant. The information asked for will be furnished Mr. Jones and other steps will be taken by the officers of the Commercial club to have the company locate its plant here. Topeka would be an ideal location for such a plant in more ways than one. It 13 in the center of a , district of cities where natural gas is, or is about to be, available. CLIFF MUST HAVE FALLEN OVER At Least His Wife Hasn't Been Able to Find Him. BIG SOT DECIDED QOCKLY. Involved the Title of $25,000 Worth of Land. One of the quickest supreme court lawsuits on record, involving Decatur county property worth over $25,000, was filed, heard, decided and the costs paid Tuesday, the whole proceeding taking only about an hour. Application was made by J. V. Colt of Oberlin for a peremptory writ of mandamus to compel F. H. Smith, county treasurer, and L. F. Campbell, county clerk of Decatur county, to al low him to pay up the delinquencies on two sections of Decatur county land, estimated to be worth $25,600. Along with the application for the writ came an agreed statement of facts, a waiver of notice of application by the defend ants, and a consent that the case might be heard at any time designated by the plaintiff. The court heard the case at once, allowed the writ, and the costs were paid. The decision was based on the recent Mrs. W. R. Cliff, who was the star witness in the police court case against I-ela Raper, has been searching the jails today for her husband, V. R. Cliff. During the course of the trial of the Raper woman, who was charged with keeping a disorderly house, Cliff made some damaging ad missions concerning his relations with an inmate of the house who Is sup posed to be under IS years of age. Cliff's wife was present during his cross examination, and although she did not "bat an eye" at the time, his sudden disappearance after the trial seemed to indicate that the implied threat of the defending attorney had been carried out, and that Cliff had been captured on a serious charge. Cliff was not arrested, and the pre sumption is that he left his happy home rather than face his wife after his admission under oath. TO Bl'Y THE RAILROADS. Part of the Programme of the New French Cabinet. Paris, Oct. 2 4. The Clemenceau cabinet has begun the formulation of Its programme and the indications are that it will be very broad and that possibly some surprises are in store. In well informed circles the impres sion prevails that the plans of the gov ernment include, besides the complete carrying out of the law providing for the separation of church and state legislation establishing workmen's pensions, the state purchase of the western and some of the southern rail ways and the creation of a state mon opoly of petroleum and alcohol. The draft of the budget, as present ed by the budget commission under the Sarrlen ministry, which has been bitterly assailed, especially by M. Poincare, the ex-foreign 'minister, as being improperly balanced, probably will be revised. Rock Island Blockade Lifted. Colorado Springs, Colo., Oct. 24. The snow blockade on the Rock Island which has completely tied that road up for the past 36 hours has been lifted and train service resumed the regular schedule this morning.

Complies v " :h th-s purs food law a cf every etta m ' - act. 4 Ife w"3 "W: ..2 At 12 o'clock Thursday, the eleventh annual meeting of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railway will be called to order in the office of J. E. Hurley, gen eral manager, by E. P. Ripley, president of the railway company. Mr. Hurley met a party of officials of the Santa Fe at Chicago and today the party is making a trip over the lines of the company between Chicago and To peka. They are traveling in a special train composed of private cars and will reach Topeka some time during the night. E. L. Copeland, secretary and treas urer of the company, has arranged to take the party In automobiles on a trip over the site of the proposed new shop extension In Topeka if the weather per mits. The trip will also include a run to the Topeka Golf and Countrysclub. Following the meeting which will be held at 12 o'clock noon, the entire party will take lunch at the Topeka club and shortly after, or at some time during the afternoon the party will leave To peka in the special - train for a trip through Texas and over the Pecos Val ley line and also for a trip of inspec tion .of the new line comprising the Belen cutoff. Part of the officials will go on to the Pacific coast while the others will turn back and return east. The party coming on the special trains consists of: Edward P. Ripley, president, Chicago. J. W. Kendrick, second vice president, Chicago. G. T. Nicholson, third vice president. Chicaeo. w. B. Jansen, fourth vice president Chicago. V. D. Hines, general counsel, New York. W. H. Diehl, transfer agent, New York. B. P. Cheney, director, Boston. H. Rieman Duval, director, New York. Byron L. Smith, director, Chicago. Directors Howel Jones and Charles S. Gleed of Topeka and Andrew C. Jobes of Wichita will also attend the meeting tomorrow. Victor Morawetz, chairman of the ex ecutive committee who has always at tended the annual meetings heretofore will very likely not be present this year. E. L. Copeland, the new secretary and treasurer of the company, will preside as secretary of the annual meeting for the first time tomorrow. The four year term of the following directors expires this year: E. P. Ripley, president, Chicago. Byron L. Smith, Chicago. Charles Steele, New York. Howel Jones, Topeka. It is believed that all the retiring di rectors will be re-elected without any. opposition. There waa some talk at a time a few weeks back that the issue of the block of 50 million convertible bonds of which the Santa Fe company sold almost the entire issue, would be found to be con verted Into common stock, on account of the prospect of better earnings on the investment if It was in the form of com mon stock than bonds, and the addi tional reason that the common stock would give a voting power which the bonds did not. The gossip was that the Rogers-Rockefeller-Standard Oil crowd had secured the bulk of this block and had converted it Into common stock for the purpose of securing a larger voice in the control of the road at the an nual meeting this year. It is stated on quite good authority, however, that but an inconsequential portion of this issue was converted and registered on the stock transfer books when they were closed September 20 for this meeting. It is therefore argued that the coming meeting tomorrow will prove perfectly harmonious. In addition to the re-eiecuoii oi uic retiring directors, independent auditors will be selected to audit the oooks of the close of the fiscal year and the stockholders will be asked to approve, confirm and ratify the lease to the San ta Fe company of the railway proper ty and franchises of the Oakland and East Side Railway company; the lease of the railway property and franchises of the Western Arizona Railway com pany; the purchase of the stock and bonds of the Denver, Enid and Gulf Railroad company; the purchase of the stock and bonds of the Arkansas Val ley Railroad company and the con struction of its railroad; the purchase of the stock and bonds of the Holly and Swlnk Railway company and the construction of its railroad; and to rat ify all other acts of the board of di rectors, as set forth in the annual re port for the fiscal year ending June SO, 1906. Following the annual meeting of the Santa Fe Railway company, Mr. Cope land will preside at the annual meet ings to be held during the afternoon of the following subsidiary organizations: The Cherokee & Pittsburg Coal and Mining Co. The Las Vegas Hot Springs Co. The New Mexico & Arizona Railway Co. The Atchison City Elevator Co. The Leavenworth & Topeka Rail way Co. The Santa Fe Elevator Co.

Complaints have been frequent of late that travel on the sidewalks in the Santa Fe shop district of the city has become extra hazardous on account of the habit that many of the workmen living in that section of the city have of riding on the walks as they go to and from their work, several small cnii dren have been knocked down of late and one of them seriously injured and a number of pedestrians have had narrow escapes from being run down. Three plain clothes men were de tailed to that section of the city yes terday with instructions to arrest every rider of a wheel who was caught rid ing on the walks and the day's work of the three men netted the nine men who were fined as they were brought in and released. The habit is a dangerous one and for a while at least the police will devote a considerable of their time to breaking up the practice. . The Minnesota on Trial. Rockland, Me., Oct. 24.

BALLOON TEST AT FORT OMAHA. The Signal Corps Is Preparing for a Series of Experiments. Washing-ton, Oct. 24. Fort Omaha, Neb., is to be the scene of many inter esting balloon experiments within the next few months. French manufac turers have shipped to the signal corps of the army a new spherical silk bal loon which will be thoroughly tested at the Nebraska post. The signal corps already has several old balloons at Fort Omaha, which are used for experi mental work. A large quantity of hydrollte from which hydrogen Is generated by con tact with water has been purchased and a generating plant will probably be built at Fort Omaha which will en able the signal corps to produce hydro gen very easily. At present hydrogen for experimental work is shipped in metal tanks. Practically all the experiments of the signal corps are made with cap tive balloons. Major Samuel Reber and Captain Charles D. Chandler, who made a balloon trp on October 22 with the Aero club, have reported to the signal corps that their aerial travel from PittsfieLd, Mass., to Ben nington, Vt., was highly successful and will later make a report on the trip which it is expected will be of consid erable value to officers interested in ballooning.

Parents who ere related by the ties of blood, or who have a consumptive tendency, or family blood taint, are sure to transmit it to their children in the form of Scrofula. Swollen glands, brittle bones, weak eyes, hip disease, pale, waxy complexions, emaciated bodies, running sores and ulcers, and general weak constitutions are the principal ways in which the disease is manifested. Those who have inherited this blighting trouble may succeed in holding it in check during young, vigorous life : but after a spell of sickness, or when the system has begun to weaken and lose its natural vitalit5 the ravages of the disease will become manifest and sometimes run into Consumption, S.
