Act of the Council.
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.

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

Scottsville has a Ladies Aid society
of the Metnoaist church. It Is said
when this good organization was ef
fected one of the ladies moved to in
corporate in the rules "that gossiping
be strictly lorbiaaen among ito mem
bers." 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. Toler is cashier. There are
also a lumber yard, two elevators,
newspaper, two general, stores, two
drug stores, hardware, implements,
hotel, furniture, blacksmiths, harness,
etc. .
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.

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

adopted condemning the action of the
packers in refusing to buy the cattle

Steam Plow a Success.
We took a ride In J. N. dike's new
auto out to see -the steam plow work
east of town Friday. The plow is a
new invention by the Reaves engine
people and is surely a new departure
and a good one. The 12 plows are lut
ed by steam out of the ground and
handled by the operator as easily as
a man handles the one plow on an old

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.

Items of Interest
Railway People.
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
"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

continues along, the Pacific coast. It
is -the only line that reaches "as far
south- as Central America.
, It connects at Sap 'GSeronlrrio with

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.
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.
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

"I do not think," said Judge Gray,

or by competent representatives make
a thorough and exhaustive study of the

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.
