THE TOPEKA DAILY STATE JOURNALWEDNESDAY EVENING, JUNE 5, 1907.
SEES A WAY OUT Mayor Green Solres Light Ques tion for Present. . Make Needed Repairs on .City l'lant. LAST FOR TWO YEAKS. Then the IV hole Question May Be Settled. Municipality Can't Stand the Added Expenditure Now. It is probable that the question of street lighting- will remain as it is for some time at any rate. Mayor Green has bten looking over his accounts and reckoning the receipts and ex penditures of the year and finds that there are Quite a number of extraordi nary expenses that will be called for which will make a great drain upon the funds of the city. There was a deficiency of $1,500 in the expeditures over the -receipts in the last year of the Davis administration and this in spite of the fact that there was an extraordinary revenue from gaj ex caat'ons. There was a revenue of - over $5,000 to the city from thU source last year which was more than J4.C00 above the normal. The . con tract for rebuilding the Sixth street viaduct was let in the last administra tion but the present admintetraton will pay for it and tne city's shf.re. of this will amount to arout JS.O'IO. Then there is the LincM.i street br'cJg which must be built at an expense ? $i,500 or $3,000, anl the Melan bridge and Central avenue bridge repairs be sides the painting. Tj iraN mutters worse, the personal property returned for taTation this v?ar is $200,000 Hfs than last year. Why this should be the cause no one knows but it makes a bis difference in the revenue. Mayor Green said this morning: "I think the present plant should be fixed up according to the estimate of Su perintendent Goodrich who thinks that a couple of thousand dollars' ex penditure upon the plant would put It inta good running shape for a couple of years. This would postpone the need cf putting any large amount into the system. If we should let the con tract to the Edison company or should rsbuild the plant, either course would cal! for an added expenditure which we cannot well stand when there are thse other extraordinary expenses that have to be made whether we want them or not. It is not a ques ts m of what we want to do but what we can do. The question of increas ing the street "lights can wait a while though this course will prove unpopu lar with the outlying districts." Councilman C. G. Blakely is of the same opinion as Mayor Green. He says: "The amount of extraordinary expense we will be put to is good enough reason for postponing action In regard to the lighting plant. And in view of this I think we were also a little hasty in regard " to" the voting machine proposition the other night. We have no need of them right now and in fact they would not prove economical until the law has been changed to lower the expenses in the matter of judges and clerks and we would have to pay Interest on them all this time." ABILENE MILL FAILURE. Speculation on the Board of Trade Said to Be the Cause. Abilene. Kan., June 5. The Security Milling plant of this place, and one of the finest milling properties in the state. has closed its doors with an indebted ness of between $80,000 and $90,000. The Citizens' bank of Abilene is one of the largest creditors, holding paper, it is said, for about $30,000, while two other local banks each have Its notes for $2,000 and the Bank of Talmadge about the same amount. A large portion of the indebtedness Is caused by "warehouse receipts" for stored wheat which is said to be mlss- lng. There are also notes given for wheat that was stored and afterwards sold by farmers to the company. The cause of the failure is said to be unprofitable speculation on the board of trade. The managers of the milling company are H. K. Humphreys, and Austin George and the concern is capitalized at $50,000. The stockholders are more or less re lated, Mr. Humphrey having married a daughter of Mr. Johntz, one of the direc tors of the milling company and also a director in the Citizens' bank. There are two stories afloat on the streets today. One that the directors of the milling company have assumed the indebtedness at the Citizens" bank and atraightened out the $30,000 due them, letting the smaller losers care for them selves. The other that a wealthy brother of Mr. Humphrey, a miller at Welling ton, has come to the rescue and satis fied the Citizens' bank. There is considerable wild talk here today that there may be criminal pros ecution by some of those who hold ware house receipts for stored grain and' now find the bins empty. The banks who have not been satisfied are also said to be rather angry, but it Is likely that matters will be ironed out without criminal suits, as the directors hold a meeting this afternoon for that purpose. J. B. Case and Mr. Shockey each had from 2.000 to 4,000 bushels of wheat stored at the mill. A week or so ago they expressed a desire to sell. The company purchased the grain and gave their notes which was satisfactory to the owners at the time. There are said to have been other sales of a similar nature. Keen regret is expressed by the citi zens of this section at the failure as the directors are prominent men and well liked. Mr. Humphrey is a member of the city council and has for years been one of Abilene's most respected citizens. The mill Is a large frame building, run by steam, and with a reputation of making the finest flour in the west. Carloads have been dally shipped to all portions of the United States. Sirs. Cnmraings Seeks a Divorce. Mrs. Lizzie Cummlngs has instituted a suit for e. divorce from her husband. Frank Cummings, whom she charges with desertion and nonsupport since August 1, 1906. The couple were mar ried September 9, 1888, and have no children. I WANTS TITLE TO PROPERTY. Miss Campbell Institutes a Suit for JTliis Purpose. Camilla Campbell baa asked the dis trict court, in a proceeding which she instituted yesterday by filing the pa pers in the case with the clerk of the district court, to declare her the legal and equitable owner of the property aescnoea as lot Wo. 419 Polk street. The petitioner is the daughter of Mrs. Ella M. Campbell, who owned this pro perty, and who died on May 3. Miss Campbell sets up that she is entitled to possession of the property as the only known heir at law to the estate of her mother. She had a brother named Robert, but nothing has been heard of him for more than eight years ana ne is neiieved to be dead. LASKER IS COMING. Chess Champion of the World Will Be Here June 13. ' Dr. Emanuel Lasker, chess cham pion of the world, win be in the city next week as the guest of the chess club of the Y. M. C. A., and Thursday evening, June 13, will deliver a lecture in the Y. M. C. A. building and meet an wno aesire to play chess. He will not devote all of his attention to any single player but will play from ten to one Hundred games simultaneously. Dr. Emanuel Lasker, Chess Champion ji me worm. Dr. Lsfsker made his appearance in Topeka the last day in January, 1906, remaining until the 3d of February auring tne jvansas uness tournament and met all comers. During this visit to the city he played 24 games simul taneously as well as numerous indi vidual games, winning every game played singly and either drew or de feated all of the contestants in tne simultaneous match excepting W. W. Harvey. This match lasted for several hours and on the seventy-fourth move was decided in favor of Mr. Harvey. The contest was not confined to local play ers but the devotees of the game from over the state were in the city contest- nar for the state championship which fell to Major A. M. Harvey. Since his appearance in this city Dr. Lasker has met a number of the best chess players in the world, defeating all of them with ease. He accepted a challenge from Frank Marshall, one of the best known chess experts, for the championship of the world and a purse of $2,000 and defeated him with eare without the loss of a single game. The approaching visit of the world's champion to the city has aroused con siderable interest in the game and there will b a number of chess en thusiasts from over the state in the city to enter the list of players who wiil enter the simultaneous contest. During the past year a lumber of chess experts have been developed from the membership of the T. M. C. A. and they are particularly anxious to meet Dr. Lasker. An invitation has been sent to Mr. Harvey, who now lives at Ashland, and it'is probable that he will come to Topeka for another series of games with Dr. Lasker. ELECT OLD OFFICERS.

Twelve Complete Course in the Academy. DR. J. F. LOBA SPEAKS. Outlines Duties of Members of the Class. An Interesting Ceremony in the College Chapel. The forty-second annual commence ment exercises of . Washburn college were held in MacVicar chapel thi3 morning. Degrees were conferred upon forty-four students who had completed the work In the various departments of the college. Fourteen degrees had al ready been conferred earlier in the sea son to the graduates of the Kansas Medical college which brings the num ber of graduates this year up to the number of fifty-eight which Is a little lower than the ordinary for the college year. There were also twelve students who received diplomas Monday from the academic department of the college and who will be full fledged college students next year. The chapel room was tastefully dec orated for the occasion. Washburn blue predominated in the elaborate setting of the stage. Palms were placed on the platform in a very artistic arrangement which added greatly to the effective decorations of the stage. Promptly at 10:30 the graduates cloth ed in the caps and gowns of their var ious departments marched into the chapel. President Plass with the mem bers of the board of trustees and the college faculty headed the processional followed by the members of the grad uation class. The faculty and trustees occupied position on the rostrum while the graduates were seated in seats in the front of the chapel room. The exercises of the morning were opened by a piano solo by Miss Anna McKirahan who received a degree from the musical department of the fine arts school. The invocation was pronounced by Rev. Francis L. Hayes, pastor of the First Congregational church. -Miss Celia Smith who also received a degree from the fine atts department sang two solos which were heartily encored. Dr. Loba's Address. The address to the graduates was de livered by the Reverend Jean Frederic Loba, D. D., of Evanston; 111. Rev. Loba is a noted educator and occupies a prominent place in the religious and educational life of the country. His ad diess this morning was on the subject, "The Awakened Spirit; the Enrichment of Life." The address was by far the best and most eloquent address which has been delivered upon a similar oc casion at Washburn in many years. In the course of his address Dr. Loba said: "We can not read the name of Athens without thinking and wondering at the marvelous existence of the educational life of that coun try, of her learning, and her narrow streets through which Aristotle, Plato and Socrates, once roamed disseminat ing their great teachings in art and philosophy. No one can mention the name of Florence without feeling the power of the great names connected with that age. At the mention of the great Florentine martyr to education, Savonarola, and Michael Angelo, a genius in all lines of thought and achievement, we find ourselves spell bound as it were to their great attain ments in the darkest ages of the world. But there is a secret to the fascination which hovers around these names which is more wonderful and which has done more than the men who have formed the ideals of cities w-ith their own thoughts. It Is the wonderful awakened science of the ages. "AH that we do or think is the work of this great artisan which con trols the working of the world. The whole power of civilization is not what we think it Is. But it is the awaken ing te a scientific and spiritual life which has made progress In the va rious lines of human activity and the refinement and culture of the human spirit. The sensativeness of the hu man spirit is the index of civilization. "The Renaissance . marked the awakening of civilization. The wave of new learning awoke Europe to a knowledge of her possibilities in the darkest period of history. This great work of .awakening the world was ac complished by the awakening of the spirit in a humble monk. Martin Luth er's conceptions of life found their way over Europe where they breathed forth life to the common and relig iously oppressed people of the contin ent. "The student of today is not engag ed in visionary and impracticable pur suits. As Matthew Arnold says they have been putting themselves in touch with the best, though handed down through the ages from the beginning of time. Their service to the world with the knowledge which they have gained In their college halls will help them to make the world broader than ever before as they are mustered In to help on the world's great battle field. "I have always been impressed by the developments in the field of science but man can not live by bread alone. The material world in which we fight our daily battles Is but the preparation for a greater world yet to come. The enlargement which pre pares for the organic relation of hu manity to the future world is but the outcome of the proper enrichment of life. "The text book, the library, the halls of the school is not the essence of college life, but it is the contact into which the student comes through the association .with the great learn ing which Is handed down. These hoys and girls In the graduating class will forget all they have learned in ten years. But if they put to use what they have gained from the learning of the past they will mingle with liv ing men and women and through their efforts they will lead those lejis for tunate to a better life and will kindle what is now dead with the fires of life. "We are living in the same world as Moses and Abraham but we cannot live and make places for ourselves as they did. Their work has been done. Before us lies the plastic world and upon it we are to leave our inscrip tions. What we accomplish in the on ward development cf civilization will be recorded. Tou are now starting out on your careers with opportunity knocking at your threshold. May suc cess crown your efforts." Those Who Received Degrees.

A commission of physicians consist ing of Drs. D. F. Nicoll, Seth A. Ham mell and W. A. McDonough, decided in the probate court today that Lew Smith, a young man, who says he is 25 years old, and whose knowledge of himself and antecedents seems limit ed to that fact through loss of mem ory, is insane and he was committed by Judge Hayden to the state hospi tal. The physicians believe that Smith is suffering from a form of insanity which the alienists are wont to term dementia praecox. Smith was picked up by the police early on Monday morning because he apparently had no home for he could tell nothing about himself. He does not appear to be over 20 years old and his clothing is of the scantiest. In the court room today he wore a pair of heavy shoes, no stockings, a pair of blue overalls and shirt and a little Jumper and a slouch hat. Numerous questions were asked Smith by the physicians but they could get little information fiom him. Most of his answers about himself and his par ents and his whereabouts during the past few months were, "I don't know," or "I can't remember." He remem bered being in Finney county herding cattle and cheep about six months and that before this he had herded sheep in Colorado, but Just where he could not state. He remembered noth ing -about his family and when asked what his father's name was replied, "Smith. I think." PTa oairt tht he had come afoot from western Kansas and thought he had been in Topeka for two or three days. He remembered having two dollars with him when he was taken up by the police but he did not remember where he got the money. Smith appeared to be in a daxed sort of condition and when many questions were asked him he knitted his brows as though it was an effort for him to comprehend the meaning of what was being said to biiru LOCAL MENTION. Llarriage licenses were issued today by the probate Judge as follows: O. S. Owen 33, Topeka, Grace D. Simpson, 27, Canton Kan.; Charles Davi,. 20, Maude Newberry, 16, both of Topeka.

By the falling of a scaffold late Tues day afternoon John Wirrick and Charles McReynold, two carpenters employed In remodeling a dwelling at the corner of Sixth and Lincoln streets were precipi tated 18 feet to the ground below and seriously injured. The scaffold fell on the men adding to the injuries which they had already sustained and Wirrick was taken to Dr. Keith's hospital where at first it was supposed that his back was broken and that his death would be the matter of a few hours. This, however, proved to be a mistake as his back was not broken at all and he will probably recover though it will be some time before he will be able to be about. e Charles McReynold, the other injured mnn fwd hetter than did his compan ion and though he suffered a number of severe bruises was able to be taken to his boarding place. The men were in the employ ef F. L. Penny and are from Stansfleld, Illinois, where each of them have families. LISTS OF THE KANSAS FAIRS. Allen County Agricultural society; Frank E.
