Dora Thorne Summertime Prices I Oc and 200 season opened without a place to set tle, was voted to Abbott last night by the fans for his work in the box dur ing the closing innings of yesterday's game. Yesterday's baseball game contained nearly every conceivable play ever re corded in the game and probably will serve as the record for some time as the most variegated game ever played in Topeka. Abbott's pitching was the feature. Pleasanton, Iowa, is short one citi zen who was in the habit of wearing a full set of false teeth, and the mayor has written Acting Mayor Hughes ask ii.g about the masticatory organs of the man murdered at the three bridges and then placed on the railroad track. Sidewalks may be constructed here after by the city using brick with an asphalt filler. Brick has always been used but the asphalt filler is something new. It will fill in the openings be tween the brick and make walking more easy. . The following reports of births have been issued by the board of health: Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Freeman, 1621 Fillmore, girl; Mr. and Mrs. A. F. Irish, 700 Law rence street, boy; Mr. and Mrs. Thomas McGrath, 816 Kansas avenue, boy; Mr. and Mrs. Fred Fisher, 319 East Third, street, boy. There is a man living on West Sixth avenue who is an amateur photographer and for the past three or four years he has sent his work to Kansas City to a large wholesale house. The "large wholesale house" in turn returns it to Topeka where the developing is done by John F. Striekrott, who returns It to the Kansas City firm and It is by them returned to the West Sixth street man who sends his work U Kansas City so that it will be done properly. Residents, property owners, on West Tenth avenue between Jackson and Harrison streets, are circulating a peti tion to repave that street with brick with an asphalt filler. The first petition called for asphalt but no bids were re ceived for doing this work when adver tisements were placed. As it is probabla that no contractor will bid for such a small asphalt contract and because- of the fact that no other asphalt paving contracts will be let for some time it is believed that it would be best to repave with brick. THE SHOOT AT FORT RILEY. Colonel Holslngton Is in Charge of the Rifle Marksmen. Fort Riley, Kan., July 10. At the state rifle competition about 170 marksmen are participating. The shoot of Tuesday was for the com pany trophy. This competition was in rapid and slow fire at 200 yards and slow fire at 200. 300 and 600 yards. Owing to the many participants and the late hour at which the com petition closed the results are not yet available. The preliminary shooting in the competition which will decide the per sonnel of the team that will represent Kansas at the national rifle competi tion this fall at Putin Bay, O., is on today. The shooting will continue un til Friday night. The marksmen will break camp Saturday morning and re turn home. Colonel Hoisington of the Second regiment, Kansas national guard, is the officer in charge at the range. Adjutant General J. W. F. Hughes is here from Topeka to re main for a couple of days.

The team that will be selected to go to the national competition will be composed of twelve of the best marks men In the two regiments of the Kansas national guard, together with three alternates, a captain, a spotter and a marker. CARLOADS OF POTATOES. Franklin County Also Sends Cabbage to Texas Markets. Ottawa, July 10. The first car of new potatoes has been shipped out of Ottawa. The car was loaded by Jacob Johnson and the potatoes were grown on the Johnson place. The Hewit-Evans company shipped the car out and it went to Omaha, from whence the potatoes will be sent on to the west. The price delivered on the car was eighty-five cents per bushel. Mr. Hewitt is rather enthusiastic over the potato crop prospect for this section. He said this morning that there would be fifty cars shipped out this season from Ottawa, Imes and Baldwin. The first car of cabbage to be ship ped out, was also loaded today by Mr. Johnson. The car is consigned to Beaumont, Texas. The price received is $1.75 per hundred. The potatoes in the Johnson fields are yielding better than 100 bushels per acre. From three and a half acres he has harvested 440 bushels of potatoes. CITY ASBUSINESS The Commission Plan Proposed for Topeka. ProYisions of the New Des Moines Charter. TKE OUT OF POLITICS Plan Pnts Municipality on New Basis. Proposition Is Being FaYorably Keceiyed Here. There is little doubt that Topeka will adopt the commission plan of government. The petition's calling an election already have nearly the re quired number of signatures. How ever an effort will be made to secure 5,000 signatures before the petitions are presented. Here is an outline of the Des Moines plan recently adopted by an overwhelming majority: Instead of the council a commission of five men in charge of these sepa rate departments: Public affairs. Accounts and finances. Streets and public improvements. Public safety. Parks and public property. Nominations to be made at a non partisan primary. Commissioners to be subject to re call by popular vote. Franchises to be submitted to pop ular vote. Initiative and referendum. The commission plan of government that has been adopted by Des Moines presents several features of interest to cities that are thinking of changing and improving their municipal char ters. The chief thing about the Des Moines plan is its simplicity and di rectness. Next in interest is the ease with which a radical change in the form of government is to be effected without disturbing the general laws governing the municipality. From a government by a mayor and ward aldermen the municipality will pass to the control of a board of five commissioners, elected at large, one of whom. will be mayor. The change will take effect March 2. And it will be made - without any inconvenience to the taxpayers and the property In terests of the city. A section of the enabling act passed by the state legislature provides that all state laws not in conflict or incon sistent with this act are retained and remain in full force. All contracts and liabilities remain the same as under the present form of government. The Des Moines plan is based on the idea that the municipality is a sepa rate and distinct entity from the state and federal government; that it is more an administrative than a legis lative body. The people retain a large measure of legislative control. The plan adopts the analogy of the large business institution. While it centralizes power it concentrates re sponsibility in the five commissioners over whom the people retain a direct control. It is an evolution of the old New England town meeting and gov ernment by the selectmen. In a city of nearly 100,000 population an as sembly of the people (s impracticable". It would be a mob. So the people are clothed with the power to choose and direct their representatives by their votes at an orderly election. Xo Political Machine, The possibility of the commission ers building a political machine seems to have been in the minds of the men who framed the charter. They aimed , to prevent it in this wise: . The mayor and four aldermen hold office two years. The plan aims to eliminate politics in the choice of a commission by providing a nonpar tisan primary. Any person desiring to become a candidate for mayor or councilman must file a statement of his candidacy with the city clerk ten Aaya before the primary. He shall file at the same time a petition signed by at least twenty-five qualified voters. After the expiration of the time for filing, the clerk publishes the names of the candidates for three successive days in all of the daily newspapers, as they will appear on the ballot. The names of the candidates for mayor, arranged alphabetically, are first to be placed with a square at the left of each name and the words "Vote for one," immediately below. Following these, also in alphabetical order, and in the same form, the names of the candidates for councilmen must ap pear with the words.- "Vote for four," below. Here is the form of the pri mary ballot, substantially: " : (Names of Candidates.) : - : (Vote for One.) : : FOR COUNCILMAN. : : Names of Candidates.) : : (Vote for Four.) : The voter makes a cross in the square to the left of the names he votes. The two candidates receiving the highest number of votes for mayor are to be the only candidates whose names shall be placed on the ballot for mayor at the regular election. The eight candidates receiving the highest number of votes for councilmen, or all of such candi dates if fewer than eight, shall be the only candiates whose names shall be placed on the ballot -for the regular election. The candidate for mayor and the four candidates for aldermen receiving the highest number of votes at the final election are to take office. No political party designation is allowed on any bal lot at the primary or the general elec tion. The new charter prohibits any person or candidate accepting from or giving money to any candidate for office to secure election or appointment. An other section to insure honest elections prescribes a severe penalty for the ac ceptance or giving of any bribe to In fluence voters. A majority vote of the five members Are You Bilious ? Yellow complexion, dull eyes, sick headache, constipation, coated tongue, bad taste in the mouth are indications that the bile needs regulating. Your liver will work properly after you have taken a few doses of Sold everywhere. Inboxesl0c.and25c. of the commission is necessary to pass1 any measure and three members shall constitute a quorum. The yeas and nays must be recorded as in a regular council meeting. The mayor has no veto. The signature of the. mayor and two of the councilmen must be record ed on every . ordinance. A simple, di rect and expeditious method of trans acting public business seems to be pro vided by the section prescribing the du ties of the commission. The commission or council will exer cise all executive, legislative and Ju dicial powers and duties now exercised by the mayor, aldermen, board of pub lic works, park commissioners, board of waterworks trustees, board of library trustees, solicitor, assessor, treasuier, auditor, city engineer and other execu tive and administrative officers. The executive and administrative authority will be divided into the following five departments: Department of public affairs. Department of accounts and finances. Department of public safety. Department of streets and public im provements.. Department of parks and public pro perty. Duties of the Mayor. The mayor is by law made the super intendent of the department of public affairs and the council at the first reg ular meeting following the election must elct one councilman to be superintend ent of each of the other departments. The commission may create and discon tinue officers as may be necessary for the welfare of the city and fix the com pensation. Opportunity is given ior a close public scrutiny of the actions of the commis sion. Every ordinance, franchise and con tract must be open to public inspection after its adoption by the council for seven days before its final passage. And it does not go into effect for ten days thereafter. With the view of preventing franchise grabs the charter requires all franchises to public service corporations to be sub mitted to a vote of the people for ap proval. No officer or employe is allowed to be interested in any way in any contract or job to which the city is a party or in which any public service corporation is interested. Any official or employe who attempts to influence or control appoint ments directly or indirectly is subject to a fine of $300 or a term in the county jail. As a further safeguard against political influence in the public service, a strict civil service system is establish ed. The council is obligated to appoint three civil service commissioners w-hose terms are for six years, each term ending- alternatively every two years. Any head of a subordinate department may suspend an employe, who shall have a right to appeal to the commission for a trial. Appointments are to be made from an eligible list of persons who have successfuly passed -examination. Where the Dea Moines plan differs conspicuously from the Galveston plan is in the provision for the recall of a councilman whose conduct causes dissatisfaction and also in the pro visions for the initiative and referen dum. A petition bearing signatures numbering 25 per cent of the total vote castat the last preceding election must be presented to the clerk de manding an election for a successor to the incumbent whose removal is desired. The clerk is required by law to put the incumbent's name on the ballot without nomination. If the in cumbent gets a majority he remains in office. ' If the other candidate gets it the incumbent goes out. Any proposed ordinance may be sub mitted to the 'council by petition signed by electors equaliimi number to 25 per cent of the last total vote. The council may pass it without alteration in twen ty days or submit it to the people at a special election. Any number of pro posed ordinances may be voted upon at the same election. tout no more than one special election shall be held for such Dumose in any period of six months. The referendum . works out much the same way. If any ordinance is passed by the council which is not satisfactory to the people they nave a ngnt to reject it bv vote. And in a somewhat similar manner the rjeople may. after six years' trial. vote to return to the old plan of gov ernment. CHALLENGES NEBRASKA. Missouri Pacific Denies the Authority of the State. Lincoln. Neb., July 10. The Mis souri, Pacific railway today challenged the authority of the Nebraska railway commission to adjust, determine or fix oil rates. The Marshall Oil company several weeks ago complained that the Nebraska freight schedules discrimi nated against the independent com pany and in favor of the Standard Oil company, allowing the latter to dis tribute from county seat points. In answer the Missouri Pacific asserts that the interstate commerce commis sion has sole jurisdiction. BOTH STAKES TO WHITNEY. Stamina and Dinna Ken Won Rich Prizes at Sheepshead. New York, July 10. Stamina and Dinna Ken, horses owned by Harry Payne Whitney, took both stake feat ures, the Double Event and the Law rence Realization, worth in the neigh borhood of $42,000, at Sheepshead Bay. James R. Keene scratched his strongest representatives in both events, Peter Pan in the Realization, because of the cuppy condition of the track, and Colin in the double event, because of his deformed hock. Mr. Keene depended on Besom, an added starter in the double event, and Zam besi in the 3-year-old stake. In both his colors were trailed in absolutely last. The Realization, the richest 3-year-old stake of the year, brought only four starters to the post, Frank Gill, Salvidere, Zambesi and Dinna Ken. All were played, but Frank Gill was a 3 to 2 favorite, with Zambesi, ridden by Miller, the outsider. After the start Miller on Zambesi cut out the pace, and was followed by Frank Gill. Passing the grandstand and around the first turn, Dinna Ken and Salvr dere trailed the former on the ex treme outside. This order held until midway in the back stretch, where Salvidere made an attempt to go up to the leader and failed. Koerner. on Dinna Ken, made no effort until well past the first turn and then easily sent Dinna Ken up to and by Zambesi. Frank Gill moved up a trifle and at the stretch turn stole the rail. Here it looked like Frank Gill all the way, but Dinna Ken was not beaten yet. Koerner urged him on and soon had Knapp on Frank Gill working at the bit. Right up to the eighth pole it was stride for stride. Frank Gill could not stand this finish ing rush and finally backed up, going past the judges three parts of a length back. Salvidere, flvo lengths back, galloped in third. Meet me at the Chautauqua. (Tke GrosLy Bros Co.
