Eva Shearer Charged With Stealing
Property From C. T. Harris.
A warrant was Issued today for the
arrest of Eva Shearer, a young woman
about 20 years old, on the complaint of
C. T. Harris, the proprietor of the Kiehl
laundry, that she stole some jewelry,
clothing and a small sum of money
which was the property of his wife and
the total value of which Is placed at
The Shearer girl was employed tem
porarily as a servant in the Harris home
at Van Buren and Eleventh streets. Mr.
and Mrs. Harris told her on Sunday af
ternoon lwt that they were going to
the park for the afternoon and that she
could have the afternoon and evening
to herself as the work In the house was
The girl sat around the house while
the Harrises were getting ready to go
out, saying that she did not care to go
out because it was so warm. She asked
them several times when they expected
to return and was told that no time had
been fixed for their coming back.
Mr. and Mrs. Harris remained at the
park during the early hours of the ev
ening and on reaching home retired
without taking the trouble to find out
whether or not the girl was in the
house. The next morning they discov
ered that she had not been in the house
all night. Mrs. Harris then found that
the drawers In a couple of dressers had
been ransacked and a considerable
quantity of fine clothing as well as a
gold bracelet and $1.80 In money had
been stolen.
Mr. Harris Immediately made a com
plaint to the sheriff with the result
that the warrant was Issued today for

City Attorney on Track of More
Thinks That Grading Figures
"Were Wrong.
Prof. Harshbarger and
Griggs Are Named.
Will Report on the Charges of
Paring Steal.
The graders are to have It next,
says F. G. Drenning, city attorney,
After airing the charges of pavement
graft, the city attorney states that ne
is about prepared to show that the city
has been spending a lot of money for
grading In return for work that It
never got. He states that he does not
believe the contract prices for grading
in former years would "permit a con
tractor to come out even.
"A grader could not have made any
money at less than 25 cents. That's
the living price and the contracts In
years past did not permit a contractor
to make anything," said the city attor
ney. .
W. " A. Harshbarger of Washburn
college, and George . Griggs, formerly
paving inspector, have been employed
by the mayor to check up the pavement
and see If the city has paid fori more
paving on the Intersections than was
actually laid. Both of these men will
go to work next week Monday and com
mence their operations.
XV. E. King, formerly assistant city
engineer, does not believe that there is
anything in the charges and thinks that
an explanation and investigation will
show that everything is as it should be.
He has turned over his field notes upon
his own Initiative to Mayor Green in
the attempt to verify the claim that all
of the paving has been actually laid as
called for.
"McCabe has attempted to cover
some of this up, at least It would look
like that In the way the accounts were
turned in. He has made no showing
for extra charges which should be
plainly shown in returning vouchers
whenever extra work occurred," said
Drenning. "'I think that we can un
cover something on the grading con
tracts, too, even though the grading
profiles for last year and the year be
fore have been destroyed. I think It
is mighty funny that the records of the
office should be used for scrap paper as
the excuse was given when we asked
for the profile sheets."
"It appears on the face of It that the
city has been paying more for its pav
ing than is shown on the plat," said
Mayor Wm. Green. "I have not veri
fied the plats by actual measurements
though the city attorney states that he
has. It is very peculiar, however, that
practically all the overcharges should
occur on the city's proportion and not
any of It on piivate property. We find
that there is an overcharge of from
$100 to $200 on every block and In one
block it runs up to over $400. I shall
try to employ an engineer to check
over this pavement for a few days. It
seems that it has been running along
for years and that it will amount to
several thousand dollars."
For the first time in a number of
years Topeka manufactured paving
brick may not be used In local paving
H. N. Price, who has the contract
for paving, owns his own brick plant,
and is In a position to supply all of the
brick for his contract If he so desires.
He occupies a strategic position and
the local manufacturers will have to
come in with an exceedingly low price
in order to land any of their product.
Both the Capital City Vitrified Brick
company and Rodgers Brick company
hope to supply brick.
The curbing and gutter contracts
were amicably settled to the satisfac
tion of contending contractors at the
council meeting last evening.
Haskins & Ramsey, who were the
lowest bidders on the combined curb
and gutter, will furnish North Kansas
avenue and Central avenue with their
product. The combination curb and
gutter costs 57 cents a lineal foot. F.
G. Drenning, city attorney, assured the
councilmen that there was no fear
that the North Topeka paving could be
bnnplrpH nut Oil a technicality because
the gutter cut down the width of the
paving three feet below the specifica
tions. -
The remaining thirteen out of the
toivi Mocks will be curbed with

New Jury list Is Made Vp by Mayor
Conforming with the order issued
ten days ago by Judge Dana of the
district court, the trustees of all the
townships In the county and William

county clerk's office at various times
during the day and selected from the
assessment rolls for the year 1906 the

and from the assessment rolls of 1907,
when the law is distinct that they
should have been selected In person
by Mayor Green and from the assess
ment rolls of 1906. Mr. Green dele
gated the power to select them to Mr.
Zimmerman, but the court declared
that he had no right to do so. Mr.
Green did the work of selecting the
new list of names, as ordered by the
court, during the afternoon. It was
no small task as he had to select about
nine hundred names from the assess
ment rolls. The jury box is filled with
at least one name for every fifty per
sons on the assessment rolls.
The township trustees made their
selections during the day and their
tasks were not particularly onerous
as they did not have many names to
select to make up the quota from the

trustees who obeyed the mandate of
the court today are:

railway company, arrived in Topeka
last Thursday and Immediately enter
ed upon the duties of his new office.
Mr. Taylor, president of the South
western said today: "I have turned all
right-of-way matters over to Mr.
Shamleffier. and it is up to him to se
cure it upon reasonable and most ami
cable terms. Mr. Shamleffier and Mr.
Parkhurst, chief engineer, spent moe-t
of the day yesterday looking over the
location for terminals and different
routes out of the city."
Mr. Shamleffier says: We do not
want any condemnation proceedings if
It can be avoided and it will be remark
able if the Southwestern gets Its right-of-way
out of Topeka and across Mis
sion township, without any such pro
ceedings. I propose to look the. situa
tion over carefully with the engineer
before beginning the location of the
line, so as to avoid entanglements as
much as possible, which is necessary In
a rase of this kind so tnat tne engineer
ine- corns on construction will have
clear sailing with the end in view of the
shortest route and the general best In

Owing to the efforts of the North
Topeka Civic : club the necessary
funds to build the footbridge annex
across the Kansas river on one side of
the Santa Fe railroad bridge have
been raised and will be turned Into
the city treasury. For years this an
nex has been agitated but nothing
definite accomplished. In accordance
with the plans and specifications
drawn by the engineering department
of the Santa Fe the annex will be
built on the east side of the railroad
bridge. It will be six feet wide and
will have two railings on the outside.
One six feet high and the other lower
to prevent accidents. Tha structural
work will be of iron and the floor and
railing of lumber. There will be rail
ings on the inside of the bridge to
keep the pedestrians from straying
over on . to the railroad tracks. The
Work will be done by the Santa Fe
without cost to the. people of North
Topeka.' The cast of the material,
$1,635, will be all of the expense to
the people. It is thought the work will
be completed before fall. There is still
about $3 00 in subscriptions that have
not as yet. been paid in and the sub
scribers are requested to pay as soon
as possible to the Civic club.
