The North Topeka Civic Club Carnival
closed Saturday night at midnight and
yesterday morning with the exception of
the paper strewn streets and the arch
way on the corner of Laurent and Kan
sas avenue nothing remained to remind
one that such a street fair had been In
existence. The crowd in attendance
Saturday night was good although hard
ly so large as on Friday evening. Owing
to the bad weather during tne weeK tne
Civic club made no large receipts from
the fair but they will come out even and
have not lost any money on the venture.
The Carnival people were well pleased
with their treatment in North Topeka
and have expressed a desire to return
here at a later day. From here they
went to Centerville, Iowa, and later will
go to Ottumwa. If the show returns to
North Topeka It will probably locate in

The fire which commenced to burn
Friday in rubbish pile on Central ave
nue is still burning. This rubbish Is
what has been dumped Into one of the
large holes made by the big flood and
how the nre originated is not Known.
Yesterday a force of men were en
gaged In hauling large green cotton
wood branches and throwing them on
the top of the fire to prevent the sparks
from blowing out and doing more
damage. The smoke from the place is
heavy and when the wind is from the
west Holman's addition gets the full
benefit. Smoke can be seen coming
out on tne south bank of Soldier creek
which would indicate that the fire has
commenced to work its way out under
tne dyke, ir such is the case it will
have fuel for itself, as the dykes are
made of large wooden piles. The fire
men have been .keeping a watch on
the blaze and it is their opinion that
it will burn Itself out.

Judge Dana today set aside the spec
ial evnire of jurors drawn to try the
case of the state against John Ewing
and Ed Green charged with attempting
to kill E. E. Garner of Shorey, by as
saulting him and placing- his body on
the railroad tracks to-be run over by a
train. ,. -- '
The Judge made no statement except
that he would sustain the motion to set
ftside the jury. The motion was argued
on Saturday -by O. E. Hungate, attor
ney for the defendants, and County At
torney Schenck. The objection was to
the method of making up the jury list.
The law provides that the list shall be
made by the mayor and this was not
done. It was made up by County CIe.rk
Zimmerman at the direction of Mayor
Green. .
The case against Green and Ewing
was continued for ' the term and their
bonds were reduced "to $1,000 each. The
amount of the bonds was originally $3,
000 each but Judge Dana had reduced
Ewing's bond to $2,000 before.
The setting aside of the jury panel
also led to the continuance of the John
son murder case. It ' will not. be tried
until the next term of court. " "

ORDERED TO CHINA.
American Pacific Squadron Is Getting'

London. June 3. A dispatch to the

the American Pacific squadron has
been ordered to concentrate in view of

Denver and Cleveland En Route.
Gibralter, June 3.- The cruisers
Denver and Cleveland, en route to
join the second division of the Amer
ican Pacific fleet in Chinese waters,
arrived here today and reported hav
ing sighted ten icebergs May 22 in

Cleveland Machinists Strike.
Cleveland, O., June 3. Two hun
dred machinists employed In shops
where the employers had refused to

chinists' union, the nine hour day with
an increase of 10 per cent in wages has
been granted by 26 concerns in Cleve
land. The men have heretofore
g-nrkwil 10 tour.
. "Do you' take this man for your hus
band?" "Uh huh."
"Do you take this woman for your
wife?"
"V-e-s." .
"You're married."
This constituted the entire ceremony
that made Miss Minnie Henderson, Mrs.
Wilbur Fennell in the city court room
today. The ceremony was performed
by Justice of the Peace Arthur Bollnger
and he omitted another important part
of the ceremony and neglected to kiss
'the bride. "
Both the bride and the bridegroom
had just been on trial. Fennell had gone
scot free and Miss Henderson had been
fined $5 for contempt of court in refus
ing to appear. In' the court to testify.
Fennell himself had faced a more ser
ious charge one that would have landed
him behind the high wall at Lansing
for a term of at least five years. The
injured person was the girl herself who
Is now Mrs. Fennell. She had signed
the complaint but she testified today
that she did not know what she was
signing. "Didn't you know what you
were signing?" asked Assistant County
Attorney Atchison.
"I did not," replied the girl.
"What did you think It was?"
"Wl-y, I thought it was a marriage
license," replied the girl and she blushed
a deep red and covered her face with her
handkerchief.
Fennell has achieved more or less
fame in Kansas as a prize fighter, his
ring name being Jesse James. He has
put more than one man to sleep with
the force of his strong right arm but
there was nothing of the bravado about
him after he w-as arrested. W hen h
was first arraigned he cried like a child
after the manner of a defeated pugilist.
He had received his rst knock-out
blc-.v. When he was taken to Jail he
tried to commit suicide. Like other
men of his profession he has great re
cuperative powers and when he appear
ed in court today his face wore a smile
and he appeared confident ot the result,
If it 'was the gill Minnie Henderson
that caused the first knockout she had
no intention of repeating the dose. On
the other hand she it was that saved
him. When she took the stand she de
nied that she had ever been wronged
by Fennell. She ; had known him but
their association had been of an inno.
cent and lamb-like nature. He had call
ed upon her frequently and had boarded
at her father's house but there was no
truth in the terrible stories that had
been told.
Mr. Atchison, the assistant county
attorney, winced as he saw his case
sliooine away from him. He sent in
question after question, but Ignorant
as the girl acKnowieagea nersen to dc,
she seemed fully capable, to ward off
the hot fire of interrogations. A slip
of the tongue might have led to net
own prosecution for perjury and tne
conviction of her prize fighter sweet
heart, but she didn't make it. 'She
said that she was 18 years old last
August when It was claimed sue was
but 15. Her sister.Mrs. Mary Large,
was called to the stand to controvert
this and she wanted to do so but sne
admitted that the birth record naa
been lost In the flood and that there
had been more or less dispute about
the ages of all the children. fcne said
that she was not even sure about her
own age. She thought her sister would
be 16 her next Dirtnuay out as nui
sure-
Then Attorney Atchison threw up
hia hands. There was no evidence to
justify the trial of the defendant for
a felony and ne saia so. juuec oimun
ordered the discharge of Fennell and
he held his bead up like a victorious
pugilist.
T.ietio nf the Peace Bollnger had
been waiting for this. The couple had
attempted to be married Deiore dui
County Attorney Schenck would not
permit the ceremony to oc jjeuuiuicu,
but now Mr. Schenck had nothing to
say about it. But Judge Simon took
a hand and told Justice Bollnger that
ii-hi 1 1 il have to wait.
Then the case of the state against
Minnie Henderson for contempt was
called. She had not appeared io tes
tify when ordered to do so by the
court and had gone to Washington
county where she was arrested and
brought back by the sheriff last Satur
day, since which time she has been in
axVias Henderson said that she did
not understand she had been ordered
t,,m after the case of Fennell had
been once continued. But Judge
Simon did not accept the explanation
and ordered a fine of $5 and costs as
sessed against the girl. But he did not
want to Interrupt the approaching
nuptials so he said that the girl would

Chicago. June 3. WHEAT The wheat
market today opened easier on scattered
selling and a slack demand. Offerings,
however, were taken at the lower prices.

in softening the market. July wheat open
ed c lower, at 9697c, and sold at
97'Ac September wheat opened ifjc
lower, at 9sfgSc, and rallied to SHc.
Minneapolis, Duluth and Chicago report
ed receipts or Mi cars.
Some strength was caused in the middle
of the day by the report of a statistician
who asserted that the present crop con
ditions showed a decline of 176 million
bushels from the condition at the time of
his last estimate. Later prices eased off
on reports of good weather conditions.
At the close July wheat was jc lower,
at 97l,iS71Ac September closed ,4c low
er to He higher, at 99V4SS9c.
CORN Corn opened easier because of
fine weather throughout the corn belt and
lower cables. The demand was fair and
absorbed the scattered offerings. July
corn opened Vic lower, at 53c, and sold
at a3c. ,
Reports that the east Is buying for ex
port made a firm market near the close
and the final quotations on the July op
tion were hic higher, at 53T44c.
OATS Oats opened a shade easier on
reports of damage by the greenbug from
Illinois. The demalid w?s good, however,
and all offerings were promptly picked
up on the decline. July oats opened hkc
lower. af4ST4c. and sold at 49c.

Now there was no one to stop Jus

apparently as happy as any bridal
