INSPECTION IS FINISHED President Ripley and Santa Fe Officials Ilet urn. A party of the chief officials of the 'Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway company, including E. P. Ripley, its president, are speeding eastward today and will arrive in Chicago some time this afternoon after an extensive trip cf inspection over the lines of the com pany in the southwest. The party is traveling in a special train of six pri vate cars and passed by, but not through Topeka last night. The train went on from Emporia to Kansas City by way of the cutoff. James E. Hurley, the general mana ger of the company, and E.l L. Cope land, the treasurer, met the party at La Junta, Col., yesterday, and contin ued on with them to Chicago. Mr. Ripley has not been interviewed much on this trip. The Evening Citi en of Albuquerque, however, prints the fkollowing: Caught on the run. President Ripley submitted to this very short interview: 'The Associated Press stated a few days ago. Mr. Ripley, that the com bined railroads of the United States An inclination to be constip ated is a common symptom of the American people. This is due to indigestion, and indiges tion comes from indiscretion of diet. Let foods be daily eaten like In I ' Ji i 4 VHEAT fla::e celecy and there would be no constip ation. IO cunts a package. ' For Sale by ail Grocer 53 had offered to give a raise of 10 per cent in wages to all their employes in iieu of a settlement of all the present uemanos or the employes. Is it fact?" "Yes, some fool telegraphed from Los Angeies quoting me as saying so. The companies may give their employes a raise, generally." The subject seemed to irritate the "old man," (the railroad men refer to him so generally), but the impenitra table mask, which his countenance wears, gave forth only a slight show of annoyance. "It has also been stated that the reason that the railroads are going to make this voluntary raise of wages is that it will serve the purpose of stem ming the wave of public sentiment, which has been going over the country, against high freight rates and alleged rate discriminations?" "Nonesense: thereis nothing in it." With that Mr. Ripley made an in quiry of tho hotel clerk and then gave himself over to the general discussion of things pertaining to the Santa Fe. He said that the journey westward had been an interesting one. The western country interested him he said that he grew up with it and had watched its gradual development into the great country it is today. He said that the Beler cutoff was nearlng completion fast. Through lo cal service will be put on it by January 1 or shortly after. For the first sev eral months the road will be given over almost exclusively to freight traffic. The heavy freight trains will settle the trad:. In the party with Mr. Riplev were J. W. Kendrick. the second vice president; George T. Nicholson, second vice pres ident; W. B. Jans.en. fourth vice presi dent: Gardner Lathrop, general solici tor; M. Rice, general storekeeper; J. E. Gorman, freight traffic manager: W. E. Hodges. general purchasing agent; James Dun, consulting engineer, and W. B. Storey, chief engineer. Imagined Herself RIcli Is Crazy. Amy Brown, an old colored woman living east of Parkdale, was adjudged insane in probate court this morning. She is laboring under the impression that she is immensely wealthy, owning property on Tenth avenue and other portions of the city, and that whit-s folks are robbing her of her rights. lSusse Must Hangr. Des Moines. Ia., Nov. 22. The su preme court of Iowa today affirmed the decision of the lower court sentencing Louis Busse. convicted of murdering his wife and burning the body, to hang! December 14. I The SeTere Storm Greatly De layed Traffic. THE SNOW IS MELTING. Did Little Damage to Tracks or lioadbed. Snow Plows IJrought Out Early From Retirement. Passenger and freight traffic on the lines of the Chicago, Rock Island & Pa cific, the Atchison, Tcpeka & Santa Fe and the Union Pacific, which iadiate from Topeka, has assumed its norma! condition within the past 18 hours, and with the exception of a few transconti nental trains from the west, the sche dules are being maintained today ac cording to the time cards. The snow which has prevailed during the last couple of days throughout the western portions of the state and to the southwest is rapidly disappearing ac cording to the reports received at the general offices of the railroad compan ies here, and this snow did little or no damage to the tracks of the railroads, except to blockade them in many locali ties and thereby delay the through trains. These blockades have been lift ed during the last li hours with snow plows and the warm sun of yesterday afternoon and today has done much more to clear the snow from the tracks. On the Rock Island lines the snow storm of the last two days delayed traf fic most on the El Paso division from Pratt, Kan., clear down to Santa Rosa, N. M., tho worst conditions prevailing between Bucklln, Kan., and Dalhart.Tex., where a wind of thirty miles an hour prevailed during the snow storms and packed the cuts along the line with solid drifts of snow. these drifts have been broken and trains are now running reg ularly along the line. The Rock Island also experienced considerable, inconven ience along the Choctaw division, with its terminus at Memphis, Tenn. There was no snow in this section, but some unusually heavy rains, which re sulted in a number of washouts and slides, put sections of this line out of commission for the time ' being. All of these breaks have been repaired and the line is in operation today. Reports received at the Santa Fe offices today were to the effect that the snow storms in the west and in the southwest had done little or no damage to the tracks of the road and had merely hindered the service by the delaying of trains, because of drifts find slippery tracks. During the last twenty-four hours conditions had im proved greatly and the trams were run ning about on time today. A similar state of affairs was reported from the Union Pacific offices. 1TIED MITCHELL WILL SPEAK. Old Y. M. C. A. Worker to Be Here on Sunday Afternoon. Next Sunday afternoon Fred G. Mitchell, for years religious work di rector of the Central Y. M. C. A., but now a missionary to the Navajo In dians, will be the speaker at Gemmell hall, in the association building. The meeting will be at the customary hour, 3:45. Mr. Mitchell is well known in To peka and it ia expected that many will take the opportunity to meet him again. For some time, past he has been in Kansas City taking treatment in an effort to recover from injuries received in a runaway accident that almost cost him his life. His spine re ceived a racking that has made him unable to pursue his chosen work among the Indians, owing to the fact that he cannot ride horseback to get around, so he is taking a period of en forced rest, and in the meantime re ducing the Navajo language to a writ ten form to aid him in learning it and preaching to the people. Mr. Mitchell will also lead the Sun day morning meeting at 8:30 in the Y. M. C. A. parlor. TOPEKA RIFLE CLUB STARTED. Dozen Chaiter Members Are Enrolled at Last Xirrht's Meeting.

At the Fort Scott Hiyh School Pressure Is Insufficient. Gas Fort Scott, Kan., Nov. 22. There Is considerable complaint that the Ivy school is not properly htited. The other day it was necessary to dismiss the classes because of the coltl weather and the lack of heat. This is due largely to the condition of the building, it is thought, rather than the insufficiency of gas. At the high school Janitor Al Mna? has commenced to burn coal altogether. He says the gas was hardly strong enough at times to insure the building being kept comfortably warm and he has lighted up the coal furnaces. OPEX HOUSE AT Y. M. C. A.

Many of the youn? men who are In the association are without homes in. the city, and were it not for some such social features they would find Thanksgiving day rather a dull holi day, since there is no football game scheduled for the afternoon.
