THE CIEVELAJTO AMEEICAUS. FINDS NEW GRAFT City Engineer Rodgers' Charge Against Topeka Bridge Co. Buy Old Iron From City and Use It Orer. CHARGING FOlt JfEW. Item Involves Little Less Than Five Hundred Dollars. Viaduct Won't B9 Keady on July 1. Using old iron from the dismantled Sixth avenue viaduct, paying the city 2 cents per pound for it and then putting some of the old Iron back in the reconstruction and charging for it at a rate of 8 cents per pound, the rate for new material, is the charge which the city engineering department makes against the Topeka Bridge company. The contract should be completed and the viaduct turned over to the city at the latest by July 1st un der the terms of the contract. The contract was entered into on February 20th. The structure is only partially re paired and the contract will not be completed for some time yet. "I don't know when they will get through, said John Rodgers, city engineer, in a disgusted tone. "Never before has the city had a more unsatisfactory contract than with the Topeka Bridge company. The company nas endeav ored to squirm out of the various terms of its contract, tried to inter polate extras and it has been fight, fight from the first signing of the con tract up until now." The dodge of putting in old iron and charging for it as new material is a new attempt it is said to get in ex tras above the regular charges which the company could make under the terms of its contract. Six hundred and twenty dollars worth of material is involved in the latest extra which both John Rodgers. city engineer, and his assistant. Walter Arnold, claim the Topeka Bridge com pany is putting in at a profitable rate when the material actually belongs to me city itseir. Of this material 7.832 pounds are chords which the company has charged tne city at a rate or .612 cents a pounds after allowing the city for it at a rate of .213 cents a pound as old iron. Th bolts were cut, the chords taken down and reset and the com pany claims that It was as costly as if it was jiew steel. This item represents 1480.10. Another item is that of 1,680.5 pounds of gusset plates, 27 of them. The gusset plates, it is said, were made from the old material, but the rate at which the company charged was equivalent to new steel. ' This item was $138.64. These are not all the serious charges that, are made against the company. It is stated that the company wilfully ruined 24 sidewalk brackets in crude methods employed in dis mantling the bride at a cost to the city of $576. The men were employed in making repairs on the ironwork which sup ports the sidewalk and instead of fol lowing the directions from the city engineer, the claim is made that the bridge company followed its own methods and permitted the iron work to fall down and become badly broken to such an extent that the city was forced to authorize new material. The company attempted to substitute other lumber than white oak for flooring and brought its request to the council. The council instructed the city engineer to use his discretion and the latter in sists on white oak. "I haven't seen any of the white oak yet." said Mr. Rodgers. It's about time it was coming, i want to see some of it in there." The bridge company has claimed that it was impossible for it to secure the white oak. Another hitch is on with regard to painting the viaduct. The bridge company wants to paint the brldfte now. the city says it does noi want it painted now, that the painting must wait until the bridge is complete ly finished and ready tor trarric. unougn the cltv council has never attempted to collect the $10 per aay against con tractors for every day in excess or tne time specified for the completion of a contract it is stated mat it is prooaDie that some sort of an attempt to force collection from the bridge company will be made this time. Paid $4,500 for a Colt. New York. June 29. The last of the Elmendorf yearlings were sold at Sheepshead Bay.- with A. J. Joyner the principal buyer. He paid $4,500 for a brown colt by Watercress-Sister Jeanie, and $3,450 for a chestnut Ally by Watercress-Victor Cross. S. C. Hildreth bought a brown colt by Minnie-Sweet Lavender for $1,350, and a bay colt by Watercress-Venette was also knocked down to him. Fined for Not Paying Dog Tax. Burlingame, June 29. Two men were fined in police court for not pay ing their dog license, the net cost to one being $10 and to the other $7.50. This would indicate that the city in tends to get what is coming to it in dog "tax this year. TWO HOSPITALS Two more cases of Bright's Disease thac recovered after the treatment In hospitals had failed and life was despaired of. One is John H. Gyselaar, the well-known merchant of Eureka. Cal. He was in the Lane hospital in San Francisco for three months. Was so swollen with dropsy that he had to be tapped every ten days. He was steadily sinking when his family took him home and put him on, Fulton's Renal Compound for Bright's Disease. The tappings ceased and he began to mend find is now perfectly well. Everybody in Eureka knows of his miraculous escape. Another case is that of Mr. T. J. Mulloy of 2716 Bryant St., San Francisco. A few months ago he was in the U. S. Marine hospital in that city, and was so low with Bright's Disease that his sister, Mrs. French, was advised by the physylcian in charg that a fatal end was inevitable and close at hand. She took him home and put him on the same treatment that saved Gyselaar. He recovered and five months later returned to his employment. Write either of the above if you question this.

MID SX3fJlEB TEMPERATURE. A Warm and Fair Sunday Promised For Tomorrow. The stratum of cool air which has been lurking about in the vicinity of lopeka ror several days past took us departure sometime during the night and this morning at 7 o clock the mer cury stood at 72 and immediately J commenced its upward Journey and at o ciucit iremDiea aDoui tne u marK with all indications pointing to a fur ther rise. There is a 12-mile-an-hour wind blowing but at that the heat is oppres sive and debilitating. Nothing better in the way of temperature is promised for tonight or Sunday and the guess Is that Sunday s temperatures will equal those of today if they do not ex c-ied them. The temperatures for to day were: 7 o'clock 72111 o'clock 8 8 o'clock 7512 o'clock 84 9 o'clock 78 1 o'clock 88 10 o'clock 81 2 o'clock 90 END IS IN SIGHT Less Than Twenty-five Hundred DoV lars Yet Needed for Washburn. The Washburn college fund of $75 000 which is being raised in Topeka is almost in sight. There is still abou twenty-five hundred dollars to be se cured before the fund is completed. It was thought that the meeting this noon would be the last one but a more careful scrutlnization of the provisions of the conditional gifts shows that there can still be another meeting on Monday. At this time it is hoped that everything will be cleaned up ana tnu money all secured. An erroneous Impression seems to exist among some people that all there remains to be done at me present time is for President Plass and some other members of the committee to unload the contents of their sleeves for the finishing touches of the cam paign. This, however, is incorrect. No one has anything up his sleeve which he is holding for a grand stand finish or anything of that nature. The committee has a hard flay s woric ahead yet. With proper response on the Dart of those who are visited oy the committee between now and Hon da" noon the sum ought to be realized. It Is not so much tha large gifts that count as it is the small offerings whlcn a great number are able to make that helps in the campaign. Today's work was one of the best which the committee has yet maae. There were no thousand dollar sub scriptions but the fund was swelled to over three thousand dollars by a large assortment of moderate donations. The merchants have not yet completed reports of their sales yesterday so that the committee will not oe aDie to an nounce the amount received from this source before Monday: The subscription announced today Wolff Packing Co $500 Amus.

Brother at Pueblo Hasn't Heard From Him. HIS FINAL LETTER. Wrote to Mrs. Jansen, Niece, About Trunk. Friends Pained and Worried Over Absence. The mystery concerning the disap pearance of Charles E. Hull, mana ger of the Topeka Linseed Oil Works, was deepened rather than cleared by a telegram, which was received from his brother Edward, of Pueblo, this morning, stating that he has not heard from him and knows -nothing of his whereabouts. Most of Mr. Hull's life has been spent in Topeka and for more than a dozen years he has been connected with the company for whom he was manager in this city. Mr. Mann, the representative of the company who has been in the city checking up his accounts is reticent and disclaims all knowledge of his whereabouts, though there is an air about his conversation indicating that he has not seen fit to divulge all that he knows of the dis appearance. Shortly after his disappearance a letter was written by T. L. Barns, steward of the Elk club, asking the Elk club of Pueblo to try and locate Mr. Hull in that city. A reply was re ceived this morning in which an offi cer of that lodge states that after hav ing made a diligent search they are unable to get any trace of him and do not think that he has been in that city, Mrs. H. F. Jansen, who is a niece of Mr. Hull, as well as her husband, are greatly worried about his unex plained absence though they have no theory as to where he is or what has caused him to so suddenly drop out of sight. The last thing that they know of him came in a letter ad dressed to Mrs. Jansen and left at the drug store of Matt Weightman to be delivered by Mr. Jansen. This letter is dated June 14th and is as follows: Dear Maude: I am leavins town today for a few days. Enclosed find my trunk key. 1 put a lot of things in it for Charley You send an expressman after it to morrow and you can then take it down to Okla. with you and unload it. Enclosed find a note to Mrs. Sher man which you can give to tne er pressman. The number 18 109 East 10th St. With love, CHAS. The Charles referred to in the letter is a brother of Mrs. Jansen's who lives on a ranch in Oklahoma and to whom Mr. Hull had frequently sent clothing which had become worn and unfit for use about the city. Matt Weightman who is one of Mr. Hull's closest friends and who has known him for the past twenty years, is as much at loss to ac count for Mr. Hull's disappearance as are his friends of less intimate ac quaintance. "I haven t the slightest idea where Charlie 13," said Mr. Weightman, "and cannot think of a single, reason for his disappearance. He left without taking even a change of underclothing with him and I have seven or eight bundles of clothes in the back room belonging to him which the laundries have left here since he has called for them. 'His best clothes as well as his pic tures and furniture with which his room was furnished have been left untouched and it seems to me that he would have taken at least a part of these things with him if he did not Intend to come back. His actions are beyond me. Why he should leave the company the way he has without telling them where he was going Is another thing that puzzles me. He has dealt with me for the past six teen or eighteen years and just as sure as the first day of the month came around he came in and settled his ac count in full. He was exceptionally prompt in money matters and method! cal in his business habits. I cannot think that there is anything wrong with his accounts for he Is the last man on earth I would suspect of irregularities of any kind." Mr. Jansen In speaking of the disap pearance or Mr. null said: You know just as much about it as we do. He is gone and has been for over two weeks and we have no idea where he is or why he Bhould have suddenly dropped out of sight without letting any of us know where he Intended to go. He has brother In Texas, another in Colorado and at the present time his mother is in Oklahoma near Selma. None of his relatives as far as we know are aware of his whereabouts and we fear that he may have met with foul play." Gives Himself Vp. Columbus, O.. June 29. Charles E. Burr, the missing member of the board of public service, who disap peared in March last, after the grand jury had Teturned an indictment against him for accepting a bribe in connection with the East Broad street paving scandal and for selling ma terial to the city from a firm in which he was Interested, appeared at the court house today and gave himself up. He had been In Canada since his flight, and arrived here last night. Jones Goes to Hutchinson.
