According to the ports of liquor sales fcr the month of June filed with the probate judge, there are more on the water wagon this month than last. . The Mrs. J. B. Furry home at 217 Fillmore street, was sold yesterday by Lucas & Lagerstrom to John Van Vechton, the consideration being $3,500. According to the reports of liquor sales Burge, the city is short in its receipts $9.93a for the month of June, that much more having been expended than was tf-ken in. The fireworks to be used by the man agement of Vinewood park have arriv ed and will be taken to the park tomor row morning for use in the celebration f the Fourth of July. Almost a week has passed without a murder and that in view of the fact that another one is said to be due ac cording to the rule of three which in the past has prevailed. For once a circus visited Topeka and a storm did not accompany it, unless the storm of Saturday night is to be charged to the Robinson aggregation which arrived Sunday. Topeka will once more resume a Quiet life now that the circus which has been In Topeka for two days has left. The circus went to Lawrence last night over the Santa Fe.

The wide tire ordinance bobbed up again at - last night's meeting of the city council. This is getting to be about as regular an occurrence as the monthly payment of salaries to the city officials. One of the perplexing legal ques tions around the court house these days is as to the jurisdiction of the juvenile court over married women, who happen to be under fifteen years of age. The friends of John Schenck are call ing attention to the fact that Charles Curtis, who was once county attorney with just such a record as has been made by the present official, is now a United States senator. J. M. Frank, who has been in the grocery business for the past 12 years in Topeka, has purchased a depart ment store at Bartlesville, Indian ter ritory, and will leave for his new loca tion the first of August. ,' Who would have thought it? To peka humbled the pride of Wichita as it has not been done before or since this season. But Leavenworth, the tailenders," seem to defeat Topeka with the greatest of ease. Graders will be put to work on the Topeka & Southwestern road between August 15 and September 1. The ter minal facilities in Topeka have al ready been arranged for and will be announced in a short time. B. P. Waggener, of Atchison, is ne gotiating with Marshall's band, and it is possible that Topeka's celebrated band will play at the annual children's picnic which will be given at Forest park, near Atchison, July 18. Real circus prices prevailed at the Robinson's shows. Peanuts were five cents each, and palm leaf fans of the dozen-for-a-dime variety sold for ten cents. To be sure each peanut was done up in an individual sack. The city council last night voted to allow Chief of Police Eaton $52.05 as expenses of his trip to Minneapolis to attend a meeting of police officials and there are those who are wonder ing what the five cent item was. The workmen on the Capper build ing at the corner of Eighth and Jack son streets spent nearly all day yes terday pumping the water out of the gangway, before they could continue the work of excavating for the found ation for the building. There is a possibility that S. R. Wells will retain his lease of the Nov elty theatre in addition to conducting a high class vaudeville show at the new theatre to be built by him at the corner of Eighth avenue and Quincy street. If he does this the new theatre will be called The Orpheum. Jesse Elliott was about the maddest man in Topeka yesterday notwith standing the fact that there was a circus here. He owns a fancy bird dog which has been wearing a muzzle in conformance with the city ordinance recently passed and yesterday an un muzzled bull dog crippled him so that he is scarcely able to move. There will be two games of ball In Topeka July 4. The morning game will be called at 10 o'clock while the afternoon game will be called at 3:30. Leavenworth will be the opposing team and judging from the gait the Topeka team is traveling at present the two teams ought to be evenly enough matched to draw a good crowd. There are a good many interesting things told by those who had the rais ing of the $75,000 fund in charge. But, cae that deserves a good deal of praise rdwa re Store Open Evenings. Is the fact that between $1,500 and $2,000 of the entire amount was raised by the colored . people of the city who are interested in the future of the institution. Those who were most instrumental in getting the subscrip tions from the colored people were Mr Tom Reynolds, the janitor and super intendent - of Washburn college campus, and Dr. Walter Caldwell, who graduated from Washburn college medical school two years ago.

Licenses to sell the stuff, due the first of July, have either been taken out or applied for. No body would dare.-., sell even as mild a beverage as 2 percent without a gov ernment license. In the meantime the council is in a quandary to know what to do. There was talk of putting a fine of ?50 a month on two per cent., which, it is claimed, has been done with all the saloons in Leavenworth, inside of the fire' limits. Some coun cilmen think the price too steep, and believe $25 a month would; be enough. They say the saloon men would pay that amount. FRENCH AUTO RACE. Nazzaro Won.

A Big Advance in Call Money Has Resulted. New York, July 2. The New York banks have begun the disbursement of July dividends and interest amounting to more than $182,000,000. This will be the largest sum that ever has been paid out this month in the city of New York. In preparation for these heavy payments, the banks have been calling loans and shifting accounts to such an extent that the rates for call loans- yesterday advanced to 15 per cent. This is the highest rate in months. The government today will begin to redeem the 4 per cent Donas or I9ur of which about $36,000,000 are out standing. It is expected that between $10,000,000 and $15,000,000 will be paid out in New York alone. Bankers say that the tension due to the July payment will probably last about ten days. It will be that time before the money that is paid out begins to re turn to the banks. IT IS UNBEARABLE. Comment of a Tokio Newspaper on San Francisco Situation. Tokio, July 2. The Nichi Nichi in a leader regrets the necessity of being compelled to write again on the Amer ican question in defense of the rights of Japanese cmpoatriots in San Francisco. "Developments in the anti-Japanese sentiment," says the paper, "show signs of progressive and systematic move ments, aiming at the deprivation of the sources of livelihood of our compatriots. The last clause of article second of the treaty can properly be called Into op eration only after a law has been pass ed but no legal step has been taken by the federal government disabling the Japanese from engaging in the employ ment agency business. The action of the San Francisco authorities is unbearable. Neither the Washington nor the Tokio government can remain inactive in view of the latest action of the San Francisco authorities against the Japanese. The time has come when the traditional friendship between both nations shall be demonstrated on some concrete rorm. The Nichi Nichi is owned by Kato, Viscount Hayashi's predecessor in the foreign office. He is a tried diplomat of more than ordinary caliber and is one of the trusted lieutenants of Marquis Ito. Diplomatic questions that find ex pression in the Nichi Nichi form one of the most important meters of Japanese sentiment. ; Laying the Corner Stone. Kingman, Kan., July 2.

BELIEVES LIFE SAVED BY CUTICURA REMEDIES "I have been treated by doctors for twenty-five years for a bad case of eczema on my leg. They did their best. out tailed to cure it. My doctor had ad vised me to have my leg cut off, but I said I would try the Cuticura Remedies first. He said, "Try them if you like, but I do not think they will do any good. At this time my leg was peeled from the knee, my foot was like a piece of raw flesh, and I had to walk on crutches. I bought a cake of Cuticura Soap, a box of Cuticura Ointment, and a bottle of Cuticura Pills. After the first two treatments the swelling went down, and in two months my leg was cured and the new skin came on. The doctor could not believe his own eyes when he saw that Cuticura had cured me and said that he would use it for his own patients. I used two cakes of Cuticura Soap, three boxes of Ointment, and five bot tles of Resolvent, and I have now been cured over seven years, and but for the Cuticura Remedies I might have lost my life. I have lots of grand children, and they are frequent users of Cuticura, and I always recommend it to the many people whom my busi ness brings to my house every day.

At Tecumseh the two old buildings where the order had its inception in Shawnee county fifty years ago are still standing. The log cabin where Lodge No. 1 was organized stands at the rear of Dr. Read's residence and is used as a store house. This cabin was built by Thos. N. Stinson, at the time Governor Reeder made his escape from the territory of Kansas. Dis guised as a woodchopper he passed a night in this cabin. The old stone building In which the first grand lodge was instituted was built by H. Wood Martin and was occupied by him as a store. When erected this was consid ered a fine piece of architecture. The original settlers of Tecumseh were pro slavery men and when the party that finally laid out the townsite of Topeka free soil men came along and offered the Tecumseh men $2,000 for an in terest in their townsite, they were re fused and coming up the river built the first cabin in Topeka. COMMISSION IS ATTACKED. Colorado Roads Ask Conrt to Oust Members From Office. . Denver, : July 2. Not content to await the first decision of the state railway commission and test the valid ity of the new act in the usual way, eight Colorado railroads filed quo war ranto proceedings in the district court yesterday against the railway commis sion, Frederick J. Chamberlln, Bulke ley Wells, Halsted L. Ritter and Alfred Bent, state treasurer, demanding that the members of the commission be outed from office and the law declared unconstitutional, null and void. None of the big eastern prairie roads Joined in the suit. They have experience of a broad nature in pro ceedings of this kind and upon the ad vice of their general counsels the roads refused to be made parties. It is believed that the law is valid by some of the most experienced railroad attorneys In the country and the suit of the Colorado roads will be watched with interest, but not with much hopes of success, by the Union Pacific, Bur lington, Santa Fe and other prairie systems. A good deal of the opposi tion is also due to the novelty of the legislation in Colorado. In the east where changes of this kind have been adopted, it is said that the big roads are not so much opposed to it as at first. They have found that railraod regulation in a safe and sane manner, after the style of the act adopted by $1.50 Quality, $1.25 $1.65 For $1.50 Wkite Canvas Oxfords A White Canvas Ox ford which is particularly recommended for every day wear.

Leavenworth, Kan.. July 2. When the office of the United States internal revenue collector .closed at 6 o'clock last evening,, more than 4,000 applica tions for government liquor licenses had been received. The old licenses expired at midnight of Sunday. The applications received come from every locality in the state. The applicant does not have to wait until he receives his license be fore he can start in business. The mo ment he files his application he is en titled to the protection the license gives him. The licenses cover all alco holic beverages, and many patent medicines come under its provisions. The necessity of filing application for renewal has played havoc with the Jointists. They know that to apply for a license will proclaim their business and it is dangerous for them to sell in toxicants without one. The license costs $25. About twenty-five in Leav enworth county have applied. A num ber of these are proprietors of "two per cent" joints, while a few are en gaged in the sale of something strong er. - .
