Scottsville, June 8. Since incor poration this town wants to be classed a city, in fact this hamlet of a few weeks ago has become citified. A few opposed incorporation, the major ity won a handsome victory. One good thing already is the construction of two or three miles of cement side walks. Besides, the town has a mar shal in P. E. Hillery who will see that the drunks are properly attended to, and the police Judge, W. X. Bower, will show no mercy to the fellows who get drunk. He is no dollar man. but fines all such $5 and costs for the first offense, and doubles it on the second arrest. A steel cell is on the way. Ira B. Keeler, mayor-elect, is at the head of the large general store of Keeler Bros. He has lived here so long that everybody knows him, and been so closely connected with the town's growth that it was the unanimous wish that he be honored with the first mayoralty of Scottsville. The council are: Henry Phelps, E. E. Gildersleeve, J. A. Hunter, H. Peterson and Dr. S. T. Eludes, all business men and rep resentative citizens. C W. Culp. who located here in M.-.rch, 1870, and opened the Missouri Pacific railroad station here Sept. 1, JSiS. says that Scottsville has won derfully increased her wealth, but in population her growth has been slow. Scottsville Is situated on the divide between the Republican and Solomon rivers, and commands a view of as rich country and thickly settled as any sectionvof Mitchell county. Her wheat raisers believe they will harvest a fair crop. Scottsville has been dubbed East Beloit. but her people won't stand for It. There is a colony here of former Beloit people, and they are, mostly, In business and doing nicely. The Beloit crowd are: Mr. and Mrs. Henry Phelps.

A wise suggestion which It is wished that Its members strictly ad- ftere to. One of the big Improvements of Pcottsville was the completion of the Keeler-Masonlc block at a cost of about $10,000. The building is 40x85 feet, the first floor being occupied by Keeler Bros. , general store, and the second floor by the Masons. This hall is one of the largest and best ar ranged in this section of the state. Scottsville has a state band, the de posits averaging close to $50,000. and a surplus of $1,200 and undivided profits of JfiOO. H. A. Phelps is presi dent, H. W. Phelps, vice president, and Gi W.

There was more building accom plished here In 190(5 than in several years past, and indications point to considerable this year. The new resi dence of Dr. S. T. Blades will cost about $C500, and that of C. F, LIpke about $2,000. There Is a movement on foot to build a public hall, the Scottsville baseball team having taken the mat ter up.

The 4,000 Acre Basin Has Enough Water to Settle Irrigation Question Lakin, Kan., June 8. A rise in the Arkansas river caused by the recent heavy rains in Colorado, sent a verlta ble flood down the Great Eastern ditch Into Laka McKlnney, and today the bottom of this huge reservoir is nearly covered. It is claimed by the sugar beet company that at the rate water is being run today In 21 days this lake will be fihed. This means a two years' supply of water for Kearny county farmers will be bottled up. Everybody here is strung to the highest pitch and hundreds are visiting the scene. It is a grand sight to see this immense body of water covering over 4,000 acres, and it settles the question of crops for this year and next. There were also fine rains Thursday. Sugar beets are up and being cultivated, a few who plant ed early have commenced thinning Generally speaking the beet crop Is just three weeks' behind last year. All crops are looking fine, and everyone expects a bumper crop in Kearny county. PROTEST FROM CHASE COUNTY. Stockmen Object to Packers Demand- ins Examination of Cattle. Cottonwood Falls.

ELECTRIC LIGHTS FOR DOWN'S. City Council WU1 Grant a Franchise at Next Meeting. Downs, June 8. Downs now has good prospects for electric lights. Mr. Stephenson appeared before the coun cil at its last meeting and made ap plication for a franchise, stating that he desired to install a plant in this city to cost $12,000 with the under standing that the city was to take ten arc lights at $5 per month each for a period of two years. The matter was laid on the table as the council did not wish to enter into a contract bind ing the city to take any given number of lights. They were entirely satisfied with Mr. Stephenson's proposition with that exception and deferred ac tion on that account. Yesterday morning Mr. Stephenson submitted another proposition to them which is virtually the same as the former one except that he does not bind the city to take any certain number of arcs. In all probability this will meet with their approval and the indications are that the franchise will be granted. WHAT K. TJ. WILL ASK FOR. Chancellor Strong Gives a "Hp" on Legislative Requests.

RAILROAD NEWS, An AH America Line May Be Realized. - Eleneious Smith Tells of the Plans for It. MANY LINES TO HELP. Pan-American Will Be Back bone of System. Other Items of Interest Railway People. to St. Louis, June 8. Eleneious Smith of this city, one of the principal mem bers of the St. Louis syndicate which is constructing the Pan-American rail road through Mexico, has returned to St. Louis after a rin through Mexico. He states that the ': road is now in operation to a point about forty miles distant from the Guatemala boundary, and that trains will be running from San Geronimo to the Mexican-Guatemala line by the first of next year. "The St. Louis syndicate probably will not extend the line beyond the Guatemala boundary," said Mr. Smith. "However, this does not signify that the project to unite all the Americas by a rail route will fail. "By the construction of about twenty-five miles of road in Guatemala, our line would be connected up with the Guatemala Central. With connec tions, our line would then form a com plete route from the United States to Guatemala City. In size and popula tion Guatemala compares, relatively, with the state of Missouri. "J. M. Neeland, the vice president of our company, has personally obtained a franchise to build a line through San Salvador. Mr. Neeland has until Sep tember to accept or decline the grant. This entsrprise is his own and has no connection with the Pan-American railroad. "Roads through the Central Ameri can states, similar to the one proposed by Mr. Neeland in San Salvador, will ultimately form an all-rail route from the United States through Mexico and Central America, to South America. "No; I can not say that we have received what might- be called a proposition to sell the Pan-American railroad to the Mexican government. That matter may come up later. "The Mexican government has awarded us a bonus of $19,200 per mile for the 300 miles of road in Mex ico. The government has just ar ranged for the payment of the last in stallment of $800,000. "The line is now completed from San Geronimo to a point about forty miles distant from the Guatemala boundary, and we are operating trains over a distance of about ZbU miles. The last gap of forty1 miles -will be finished by January 1, when trains will be running over the 300 miles bf road in Mexico. As this-is the rainy sea son, we can not carry on the work raDidlv: in fact, construction opera tions will be virtually suspended until September or October.'- The Pan-American railroad Is built along the Pacific coast from San Geronimo. near Salina Cruz, to the Guatemala . . boundary. ; The route thrnueh Central America, as proposed. continues along, the Pacific coast. It is -the only line that reaches "as far south- as Central America. , It connects at Sap 'GSeronlrrio with roads operating to the City of Mexico, and thereby forms the last link in a rail route from Canada to Central America. The road . has been con structed by a St. Louis syndicate, which still owns it. , HEAVY FIXES TO BE PAID. Newest Expedient to Help Car Short age Situation. Railroad officials located . here ex pect to hear within the next few days whether the plan adopted at the April meeting of the American Railway as sociation to improve the car shortage will be adopted by the various lines. At the association meeting it was sug gested that a tax of $5 a day be placed upon any railroad diverting a foreign freight car on its line to any point but that in the direction or the Home line. It was decided to give the different railroads in the country a vote on this question, and it was decided that the matter should be decided by letter bal lot The last day for filing the letter ballots was May 25, and while no statement has been issued by the asso ciation, it is generally believed that the proposition will be voted upon favor ably by the principal railroads. It was hoped among the larger lines, which have been the .chief suf ferers from the car piracy, that by such measures they would be able to overcome the difficulties of car short ages, which in their case, have been caused largely by smaller lines holding and using their cars instead of promptly returning them. If this plan is adopted it is probable that the new rule will become effective July 1. Advanced per diem car service charges, which were agTeed upon some time ago by the American Railway as sociation, it is believed, will also do much toward improving the freight car shortage. It was announced yes terday by several of the local lines that there has been much Improve ment in the car situation during the past few months, and very few com plaints - are being received from the shippers and manufacturers. This condition, however, is not due to any falling off in business, as Teports from the division superintendents' offices show that several new' high records in the handling of traffic have been es tablished during the past two or three months. Hundreds of new freight cars have been turned over to the local lines lately, and the capacity of the new cars is much greater than that of the old ones. FOR BETTER ENGINE WATER. Santa Fe to Improve Purifying Plant at Ottawa. . Ottawa. Kan., June 8. W. A. Pow ers, . of Topeka, chief chemist for the Santa Fe system, was in the citv a day or two ago on business -connected with the water clearing plant in North Ottawa. A radical change has been effected in the plant, a principal fea ture of which is the installation of a new pump. This pump is of a style by which the operator can instantly make a change in its forcing capacity from a few gallons per minute to many hun dreds, without stopping the machinery. The purpose of the pump is to supply the clarirying cnemicais to tne tank. The entire attention of an attendant is required at the plant and his chief dutv is to see that just the proDer quantity of clarifler is supplied accord ing to the quantity of water that passes into the tank, this quantity vary- j ing -wits, the varying pressure trom the ' city pipes. The tank In North Ottawa has a capacity of about 150,000 gallons per aay. ine water is used exclusively for engine supplies and the' object in "clearing" it is to prevent "scaling" of the flues. The present plant, since the installation of the big engines, is in sufficient for the demand. XOT TO FIGHT THE LAWS. Passenger Officials Accept Missouri and Illinois 2 Cent Edicts. St. Louis. June 8. Passenger of ficials of the Illinois and Missouri lines met in this city yesterday at the Jefferson for an informal discussion of the 2-cent fare law. The Illinois lines got together in the morning. Chairman McLeod of the Western Passenger association presiding, and the Missouri lines met in the after noon, with Chairman Hannegan of the Southwestern . association presiding. The whole situation was carefully con sidered at both conferences, but no definite conclusions were reached, and it was determined to refer all ques tions to the association conferences to be held next week in Chicago, the Western association meeting on Tues day and the Central Passenger asso ciation on Wednesday. The consensus of opinion was that the law would be strictly complied with the Missouri law taking effect June 15 and the Illi nois law July 1. The executive officers in the future would determine what course to adopt after consulting with counsel if it should be found that the reduced rates had a ruinous effect upon revenue, amounting to a con fiscation of earnings or property, and it would probably develop that stock holders would move in the courts, making a test case involving the validity of the law. The passenger men decided that no rate concessions should be made for gatherings within the state which would be lower than 2 cents per mile, but day excursions between local points will continue to be run at the usual reduced rates. , The new law, of course, will not affect rates and ar rangements made already for the big conventions of the summer, which is interstate business, and the tourist rates and arrangements east and west will not be affected by the opera tion of the new state law. The gen eral policy, however, in future will be to make no rate lower than 2 cents per mile for meetings within the state. GOVERNOR WARNER DENIES. Story That Roosevelt Advised Michi gan Legislature to Go Slow. Lansing, Mich., June 8. Governor Fred' Warner has isued a statement denying a published report that Presi dent Roosevelt, while In the city last Friday, advised the governor to go slow with railroad legislation and let the interstate commerce commission work out the problems now under consideration. "Nothing of the kind occurred," says the governor in his statement. "The state as well as the general government has problems to work out, and there is no reason why there should, be any conflict in these matters., It Is important that they should be worked out as soon as pos sible and the national laws supple mented, by, state legislation." i ' MANCHESTER, NOT TO WORK. Will Not ' Become a Railroader, Says Wall Street. New York, June 8. Intimate friends In Wall street of Eugene Zimmerman and his son-in-law, the Duke of Man Chester, state that there was no truth In the report that the young duke was to eive ud his English residence and live in this country, devoting himself to railroading. It was said that Mr. Zimmerman had offered his son-in-law the vice presidency or the Detroit, To ledo & Ironton railroad, in which Mr. Zimmerman has a controlling interest. . Mr. Zimmerman is now abroad witn his daughter. At the office of H. B. Hollins Co., where he makes his head quarters while in New York, the story was ridiculed. WON'T LEASE THE HOSPITAL. Santa Fe Replies to Suggestion of Ottawa Officials. Ottawa, Kan., June 8. Dr. H. W. Giiley has received a letter from J.

Constipation is the beginning of most dis eases. It paves the way for all others, Lack of exercise, hasty eating, improper food, are its first causes. Laziness, and postponement, permit it r.o grow into Chronic Constipation, which ineans life-long Discomfort. It Isn't necessary to be sick-a-bed, you know, in order to be mighty uncomfortable. Even a slight indigestion affects .the nerves, dulls the mind, and obscures the. merry sunshine of Life. The time to adjust the Bowels is the very minute you suspect they need adjustment. If your tongue is slightly coated, ' If your breath is under suspicion, If your head feels a trifle heavy or duU, If digsstion seems even a little slow.

It is as congenial to your Bowels as it is to your Palate. It stimulates the muscular lining of the Bowels and Intestines, so that they mechani cally extract nourishment from the food and drive out the waste.

WILL MAKE BETTER RAILS. Says Chairman Gary of Steel So Corporation. New York, June 8. Commenting on the agitation for better steel rails. Chairman Judge E. H. Gary, of the steel corporation, today said: "I do not think," said Judge Gray, that any charges of intentional neg lect on the part of manufacturers or railroad managers have been authorized by any officials who are in control or their respective properties. It is pro bable that the leading railway officials and the leading officials of the manu facturing company will soon personally or by competent representatives make a thorough and exhaustive study of the whole situation, at which time every important question relating to the quality of rails and the operation of railroads as applied to the use of rails will be discussed, and with the hope on the part of all concerned that there will be a unanimous decision which ahnniii not be Questioned by any one. I do 'not hesitate to say that if it is nmnticable to manufacture a better rail than the one now in use our com panies will make it." THE HEIRS ARE NOT SATISFIED. Charge Collusion In Sale of Summers Farm In Osborne County. An interesting lawsuit pending in the United States circuit court from Osborne coi'nty was presented today to E. S. Qulnton, who Is acting as special master In the controversy. The question involved is whether or not thi probate courts of .the state have the right to cause the issuance of a deed to property. The question is a constitutional one, and for that rea son, the case was transferred to the federal courts. The title of the case is Eliza Acker man et al. versus O. E. Irey et al. The property in controversy is a quarter section of valuable farm land in Os borne county. The land belonged to Mary V. Summers, who went craay and died in 1892 in the state asylum at Topeka. She left five children, three of whom were minors. There was an $800 mortgage on the prop erty. The probate court appointed J. K. Mitchell of Osborne county ad ministrator of the estate, and as ad ministrator, Mr. Mitchell asked per mission to sell the farm and pay off the mortgage. The farm was sold to o v.. I rev. the brother of the probate judge for $1,000, the $800 mortgage was paid, ' off, and the $200 divided among the minor heirs. Now the three minor neirs nave come to the conclusion that the sale of the property by Mitchell was illegal, and that the probate court had no right to order the sale. The charge Is made that there was fraud and col lusion in making the sale, and that the nrobate judge consented to it in order that his brother might buy in the properly for less than its real value. . - The evidence in tne case nas an been prenared in the form of deposi tions, and the appearance of the at torneys before the special master to .was for the nurpose of finishing up the preparation of the report to be presented to tne coun.
