To the Editor of the State Journal: County Treasurer Bowen makes the following statement in your paper in reply to my contention that he has re tained certain fees which he should have turned into the county treasury: "It's an unwarranted falsehood. It's hard for me to believe that the coun ty clerk makes any such charge. He knows better. This is the first inti mation that I have had that he or any one else ever had an idea that I was retaining: any of the fees in question l nave never even contended that was entitled to these fees. These fees have been turned in and accounted for by me regularly to the general county iuna ana tne doors or my office show it. These books are checked up by the county commissioners and the county auditor and they know that these fees have been turned into the county funds by me. I never dreamed of retaining them. I never knew that there was any contention on the part or me county cierK tnat I had retain ed them. As I understand it the sole contention 01 tne. county clerk was that I should make regular quarterly reports on these fees which I collect and turn over to the county, but the county attorney has given me an oDin ion to the eff?ct that I do not have to make these reports. They are un necessary for the books of the office show that the fees I collect are turned into the general county fund. I have never claimed them and certainly nev er had any intention of claiming mem. Kererring to the above: This is to certify that cash books and duplicate receipts on nie in my office show 'h-ii F.

G. ZIMMERMAN. County Cler't. Mr. Bowen has not seen these spe cific charges made by Mr. Zimmerman, but in discussing: the general proposi tion today he said that the business of the county treasurer's office was trans acted by him with the county com missioners. He said that Mr. Zimmer man could charge up such fees and things as he pleased to him but as long as the treasury business was transacted to the satisfaction of the county commissioners and auditor he would continue to carry on the busi ness in the same way regardless of Mr. Zimmerman's ideas !n the matter. Mr. Bowen suggested that ttje proper place for Mr. Zimmerman to carrv on his fight was before the county com missioners and that if he proved to them that the county treasury was be ing mismanaged they would undoubt edly see that the errors, if they existed, were rectified.

The ' vice president of the United States visited Chicago last September. He made the journey to lay a corner stone and incidentally, of course, to "strike a keynote." Being the second citizen in the land, with well known ambitions to ,be the. first, it was nat ural that he should expect a "rousing reception." Alas! he was disappoint ed. The name of Clark Griffith meant more to Chicago that day than did that of Charles Warren Fairbanks. Mr, Griffith had arrived in town, with an aggregation of ball players, who threatened to capture the AmericaJr-4 league pennant from the Chicagoa. Wherefore, several thousand enthusi astic citizens were at the South Side grounds; other thousands, who could not gain admission, hung around the ball park; other thousands were pack ed about bulletin boards which told the story of the battle, by innings; and still other thousands waited impatient ly for the sporting extras. AH Chi cago was baseball mad. Of course, the cornerstone business, even with the vice president of the United States wielding the trowel, was something of frost. Now. if the Honorable William H. Taft, secretary of "war, had been in the place of the vice president, the result ht have been somewhat different. And this is the reason why: the Chi cago "Cubs," who had then won the championship in the National league. represent the club which is owned by Charles F. Tafc, a brother, of Secre tary Taft. Mr. Charles Taft is the proprietor of the Cincinnati Times Star, and it was the sporting editor of his paper, Charles W. Murphy, who Induced him to buy the Chicago base ball club. Mr. Murphy is now the president of the club, but the owner is Mr. Taft. As the American people well know. Brother Charles is now field manager of Brother Will's boom fqr the presi dency, secretary tart, tnererore. comes pretty near being tne baseball candidate for president of the United States. rsrowir r y hi may ui own baseball club, but he is certainly an ardent fan. Henry Beach Needham in Success Magazine. Its Compensation. He had been going to see her for a long time, but never stated the object of his visits, and she was desirous of knowing something of the future. He met her one niht at the house of a mutual friend, and seemed to be quite sad. After several well-developed sighs he said: "Life is full, very full, of bit terness, isn't it?" "Oh! I don't know," she responded, cheerfully: "I haven't much cause to. complain." "Possibly not now, Mary; but the bitter cup has been nlaced to your lips." "Yea, Henry, my parents are dead." "And is there no bitterness in that. Mary? Is It not very, very sad to be an orphan?" "Of course it is, Henry; but you see" and she blushed vividly "it relieves you of the embarrasment cf asking father." Henry's heart was touched. Sphere. Ambiguous. At the death of a much loved pastor some years ago, the vestry of a promi nent New York church resolved to place a tablet to his memory in the vestibule of the church. In due time the tablet appeared In its place, where It still remains. It has caused not a few smiles; for. after reciting a list of the former pastor's virtues and labors, it closes with the quotation: "Now the people of God have rest." Harper's Weekly. .

Her Seven suits for divorce, all of them filed by women against their husbands. were on the district court calendar for trial today and Judge Dana was on the bench prepared to dispose of them.

Mrs. Shute's mother, Sarah Welling ton, took the witness stand and con firmed her daughter's story of the treatment that had been accorded her by Shute. Judge Dana granted the divorce. The six other suits on the calendar which were dismissed by the judge be cause no one was on hand, to either prosecute them or oppose them follow.

DR. LASKER IS HERE, World' Chess Champion WUI ' ' Eighteen Men Tonight. Play A chess tournament In which Dr. Emanuel Lasker will play eighteen men at one time is the evening's en tertainment that: is planned for the local Y. M. C. A.. and will take Dlace in Gemmel Hall of that building. Topeka is one of the many places at which Dr. Lasker will piay on nis lour of the country. He played m Kansas City last night, and will leave here for the south tomorrow, after ne nas nn- lshed the series. Dr. Lasker was here a little more than a year ago, and played twenty- three men at one time. Among tne players was the Kansas cham nion. A. M. Harvey, who defeated him squarely in one of thAgames. Major Harvev is an exceptionally gooa piayer and is expected to . give, the doctor a hard game tonight. - The following are theimen slated to nlav Dr. Lasker at the Y. M. C. A. this evening: H T. Chase, J; E. Frost, Fred Bradburv. M. E. Urie, ti. J. wnitcomD Joe Waters, Harry Goss, Ed. May, Mr. Cleghorne, J. J. --Ejveringham, xm. r. Garretson. Major A. W" Harvey, H. G, Larimer, Wm. Tiernah, W. N. Neidner, a. T, Howe, E. H. Anderson, ana Dr. Geo. Dick. ' v.... . Dr. Lasker is a small unassuming man about forty-three years of age. He was born in Berlin, Germany, but came to this country at an early age. He beean to play chessat the age of twelve and for twentyrnve years has played with every chess player of note that could be found of both sides of the Atlantic ocean. In the year 1895 he challenged Williafn Steinitz to a series of games, and - defeated him. Steinitz was not satisfied so Dr. Las ker defeated-, him again. William Steinitz had at that time held the world championship for a -period of twenty eight years. Besides the world's cham pionship, which he won then he al so won the side wager of $2,000 which goes with the victory. Since then he has had difficulty in getting cnam pionship series. One reason was a fractured skull which one of his oppo nents received just before the games. A few months ago however, he met Marshall, the English champion, and defeated him in every game. Before he begins to play tonight the doctor will give a short lecture on "The principles of openings." This is his usual method and is for the instruction of his competitors as well as the audience. He says of his man-, ner of beginning a series of games; "I always go oft by myself, before every series and prepare my mind for the contest. I like to get out Into the open air and along some small stream and think over several methods. While I am rusticating, as you might say, I analyze the most difficult open ings, so that I may have them in mind, and then plan the game that I shall play." In this -way the doctor Is al ways ready for anything. Dr. Lasker is the editor of "Lasker's Chess Magazine" of New York city. Ha is also a contributor to several other publications, and gives analysis of classical games. , These contribu tions are very Interesting, and convey very useful information to all lovers of games. He always anxious to talk with interested persons about chess as well as others famous games,and in a mellow voice and an attractive Ger man accent he makes himself very in teresting. There will be no admission fee charged tonight as had been intend ed. The players will each be charg ed a small fee and are asked to bring rived this aftnoonandhls made hi, their own chessmen.

A. federal commission er In the charge of the sanitation of the Panama canal zone addressing the grad uating class of the Cornell university medical college here, prophesied that "gradually within the next two or. three centuries tropical countries, which offer a much greater return for man's labor than do the temperate zones, will be set-. tied by tha white races, and that again the centers of wealth, civilization and population will be in the tropics, as thoy were in trie dawn of man's , history, rath er than In the temperate zones as at present." Colonel Gorgas bases his opinion on the sanitary achievements since the msrlnn mlllinrv nrennatinn nt Ouha 1 In 1SQ8 sn1 thitgis In thIar anna .lni American possession in May, 1904. The last case of yellow fever in the canal zone, he -said. . occurred in December, 1905. which was only 'about sixteen months later. He described the war of annihiliation waged " against the stegomia (yellow fever) mosquitto and against the anopheles (malaria) mos quitto, and continued: " - "We have had no yellow fever any where on the Isthmus for more than a yt ar. We believe that in the towns of Panama and Colon the stegomia have been so reduced in mimbs in fact al most exterminated-that yellow ; fever would not spread If Introduced. Malaria has been co controlled that the sick rata of our total force In the month of April, 1907, was less than 17 per 1,000." Hottest Night of Season. According to the reports received at the government weather bureau last night was the hottest of the season and while the temperature has reach ed a Tiigher point than it has today earlier in the season, the heat seems unbearable today on aecount of the excessive humidity in the air. There is a ten-mile an hour wind blowing from the southeast which helps some, but at that wilted collars and perspir ation soiled shirt waists are the fea ture of the day and no longer do straw hats seem unseasonable. At 7 o'clock this morning the mercury stood at 76, which is a record breaker for this sea son and an indication of the tempera ture during the night. Tomorrow will be warm and fair and It Is more than likely that the temperature will reach a hieher point thamtoday. The following are- the temperatures for today: 7 o'clock 73111 o'clock ...i.81 8 o'clock 76112 o'clock .....83 o'clock .... .781 1 o'elock .85 10 o'clock 801 2 o'clock .....86 RAISE INTHE LEVY City Must Meet the . Increased Expenditures. Council Will Probably Ask for I More Taxes. heavy paving cost This Is a Big Item That Must Be met. This Item Will Amount to 25,000 This Year. For the first time In two years the tax levy for meeting the running ex penses of Topeka city proper will probably have to be- increased. The Jarg-e amount of paving which will be contracted for next week is responsible for the probable increase. The city pays off yearly 50,000 in Im provement bonds for paving and of this amount the city's proportion is close to $20,000. This year the city s proportion of the new paving will ap proximate $25,000 when all of the work is contracted for. This means an increase of $5,000 over the amount collectible at the rate of the levy in force this past year. The levy provides one and seven- tenths of a mill on every dollar for the redemption and retirement of one tenth of the improvement bonds. The entire issue of the bonds becomes due at the expiration of ten years, one- tenth being payable each year. I don t see how we can reduce It any and it is possible that we will have to increase the amount of the levy," said Councilman Samuel T, Howe, chairman of the ways and means committee wh ose committee meets this evening. "I think it is likely that the question of the levy will be brought up this evening," said Mayor Wm. Green. "It is Imperative to have the question of levy settled as soon as possible. I have " no Idea of what will be done In advance of the committee's action. I hardly think it likely the' levy will be reduced. It will depend upon the paving." Both Councilman Howe and Mayor Green agree that the following funds will not be changed as to the amount of the levy; general revenue fund, general Improvement fund , sinking. Interest coupons, interest of water bonds, park fund, judgment and li brary fund. The two general funds are as large as the law allows, they are right up against the handle and can't be increased. The Interest on water bonds will not change appreciably, the park fund is as large as the ways and means committee thinks expedient though the park com missioners would like to have more. The judgment fund has remaining credited to it about $300 with a law suit pending which involves $1,500. If the suit goes against the city it will be absolutely necessary to leave the Judgment fund remain intact, while the library fund Is a constant quantity. The funds for the redemption or im provement bonds", and" the fund to- pay Interest on these ponds are the disputed funds. Both of these are dependent upon this year's paving and the ways and means committee has not collected: sufficient data - to Indicate whether It will have to recommend an Increase In the size of . the .levy for these ' two particular Items. This will be the first time in several years at which it has been found im possible, to make a reduction in the amount of .the . levy. Last year the levy was decreased by 5 hundredths of a mill, very slight but still a reduction; the: year previous to that It was reduced by one and one-half mills. The big reduction at that time was due to a cut In the amount collect ible for judgments and for interest and The city never Collects all of the taxes fully due. Last year the delinquencies amounted close to $20,000. If the taxes could be fully collected it would be pos sible to cut down the levy some. The Increase fn the valuation of the city though not fully determined because v. v, .- ,3 r dmisalW.atlnn Vina nit vt t d an abstract is believed will show an Increase of about $200,000 which will mean, in receipts based on tne pres ent lew. about $4,000.

THE MILLS CO. SHE'S A PLUCKY GIRL. Miss Helen Lindsay Guides Runaway Horse Safely Two Miles. Miss Helen Lindsay, eldest daughter of Dr. W. 8. Lindsay, had a thriliir-S two .mile ride behind a runaway iorse last night and a fortunate escape rom Injuries or possibly death. Her escape was all the more remarkable when It is considered that the streets and roads over which the runaway steed dashed were crowded with teams .and automo biles and had it not been for the cour age and coolness of the slender voung driver it is more than likely that the ride would have terminated different ly. Miss Lindsay had started for a drivs fromher home on the corner of Four teenth street and Western avenue, and before the horse had left -the driveway from the stable he started to run. Dr. Lindsay was sitting on the front porch and saw the animal start but was pow erless to lend aid to his daughter, who was tugging at the reins with all of her strength. C. A. Klelnt, a butcher, who was eassins stopped and took Dr. Lindsay into his buggy and urging his animal to ita tonmoRt sneed endeavored to 3Ver take the runaway horse. Block ift.er block the runaway horse raced but all the time adding to the distance be tween himself and his pursuers while Dr. Lindsay and the driver of tne buggy in which he was riding urged their horse to its utmost speed. The young driver behind the runaway guided her steed with a master's hand, and when it was necessary to turn a corner widened it as much as posdi'ol?, and though the turns which were num erous were more than once made with two of the wheels free from tne roan Tii- T,inrisav' stable man. Wilbur Hell- man, hitched another horse and with Merrill a son of Dr. Lindsay s, starisa after the procession of running horses but they too lost ground and failod to overtake it. Miss Lindsay finally stopped the horse unaided at a farmer's house. H. J. HARWI IS DEAD. Well Known Western Kansas Lawyer a Victim of Diabetes. Henry J. Harwi of Hill City died of diabetes at two o'elock this morning at his home. He was a nephew of A. J. Harwi cf Atchison. He was one of the early settlers in that part of the country and for over a quarter of a century had been a leading lawyer In northwestern Kansas. Mr. Harwi was one of Senator Plumb's political lieutenants and con trolled the patronage of his district un der him as well as under Senator Baker later on. He was a keen lawyer and had the reputation of being one of the most acute court room attorneys in the state. Mr. John Dawson, the assistant attor ney general of the state, prepared for the bar in Ms office and was admitted upon his motion. Mr. Dawson says of him: "He was one of the most wondar ful leaders of men that It has ever been my privilege to meet. As a lawyer he was quick and sure in Judgment, and persistent in his search for facts. He was a wonderful man In all his dealings with men, and in his little personal pe culiarities and ldlosynracies endeared himself to all who knew him. I shall al ways cherish his words of wisdom spoken to me while studying in his office and I shall cherish his memory as a sacred right." The funeral will be held Saturday from the residence. .
