THE TOPEKA DAILY STATS JOURITAIr WEDNESD AY EVENING, JULY 17, 1906.
NOT A FLAG THERE Senator Charles Curtis Rebukes Chautauqua Management. Patriotic Day With !S"o Stars and Stripes on Platform. MAKES A GOOD TALK. Denies Current Stories About Panama Cities. Congressional Party Didn't Violate Quarantine Rules. Today Is Patriotic day at the Chau tauqua. An Interesting program Is ar ranged for the day. Senator Charles Curtis this morning addressed the as sembly on "A Trip to Panama.' Sen ator Curtis took occasion- to praise the regrulatlon of the cities of Panama and JColon and stated that they were as clean and well-governed as any cities of their size In the world. This is in flat contradiction of many of the stor ies afloat concerning: conditions on the Isthmus and Is especially interesting coming from one who has been there and studied the affairs there closely. The senator also denied the stories current about the defiance of the quarantine regulations of the canal aone by the members of the congres sional party. Instead of defying the regulations. Speaker Cannon, the head of the party, insisted on staying aboard until all the passengers could come ashore although permission was granted them as congressmen to come ashore before. Senator Curtis spoke of this, he said, so that the peo ple here might know how a party of United States congressmen conducted themselves when away from home. The speaker gave the reasons for building a sea level instead of a lock canal viz., the high tides on the Pa cific side and the river which can not be -controlled during the wet season. Before mentioning the canal the sen ator spoke of interesting points in the West Indies and South America where the party touched prior to the visit to the Isthmus. Afternoon addresses by Senator "Wil liam Warner of Missouri. Congress- j men W. A. Calderhead and D. R. An- thonv. Dr. B. F Bovle. and Mrs. E. E Forter will fill out the remainder of the patriotic exercises of the dav. Tonight, after a concert by the Wil bur Star company, Mr. Nat M. Brig- ham will give an illustrated lecture on "The Apache Warpath. Tusrlav afternoon's session began a 2 o'clock with a concert by the Wilbur Ktnr Concert company. Mr. Star s com pany was engaged for two days giving a concert botn aiternoon ana evening. Their work consists of vocal and violin solos, quartettes, and readings. Their DroErammes are of a high order and thnrmiphlv pnlnvwi bv all. At 2:30 p. m. CoU H. W. J. Ham of Georgia, began his lecture on "The Snollygoster in Politics." Mr. Ham is a sneaker of the rapid fire order and rivals a Catling gun in action. Like Mr liaincs, whom helntroduced as the originator or tne term -snouygosier.-he has the Georgia "gift of gab." Th term "Snollveoster" as he used It. means any Tnan who Is in politics for his own private gain exclusively and this tvoe of man Mr. Ham says Ameri ca has encouraged but must soon drive out if she would preserve her Institu tions which have coRt so much treasure and sacrifice. The speaker had an un usually large fund of good old "Crack er" stories and told them in an irre sistible manner. Especially good was the story of the origin of the subject of the lecture which. Iik. the others was not only a good Btzcv but brlst'td with meaning. The lecture was a strong plea for right iisnoss in poli tics and the abatid inm nt i partisan ship for something broader and better. At 4 o'clock Mrs. John P. White gave the first of a series of addresses on the United Mission Study course. Her Tubiect. was "The Triumph of Mis sions." The council tent was crowded and the large audience felt well re paid by the excellent discussion to which they listened. The evening programme beg;.n at a disadvantage owing to the fact ih.it the new lights ordered from Kansas City did not arrive In time. The start was thus delayed so that th audience was somewhat restless before the en tertainment began. The Wilbur Star company gave a very pleasing half nour of musical entertainment after which Dr. Thomas E. Green, the speak er of the evening gave his lecture on "Civic Barteria." It was nearly 9 o'clock before the meeting was turned Surplus Stock OF White Waists WORTH FROM $1.00 to $1.39 Your Choice For...... 7 EVERY ONE A BARGAIN 619 Kansas Avenue 4c Living Tenisr-. 1 good nkird and Stipr!nlndn4 of At the Garfield over to Mr. Green and he was at a further disadvantage du-j to the poor lights and presence of ladder in the middle of the auditorium which prevented his looking at all his audience without walking back and forth over the platform. He was equal to the occasion, however, .and in spite of the lateness of the hour, few people left after he began to speak. He first showed the analogy between the human body and the civic body. Bacteria is a very useful and neces sary part of life as long as it remains in the proper place, but when It gets out of place, it causes trouble. Dr. Green insisted that all our trouble. both physical and civic, is caused by things being out of place. The emigra tion question received the attention of the speaker and he showed clearly the cause and the dangers. The foreign born population produce most of the insane and criminal class and this is more bacteria at work. Not discount ing foreign missions, he maintained that missionary work at home is of paramount Importance. Dr. Green also stated that our age and mode of living produces Intemperance instead of the opposite. We are living too fast and are too materialistic. He could not give a solution for all these evils because no one knows what the solution is as yet. but was quite sure that the nearest thing to It is a united Christianity and his closing words were a plea for this. Dr. Thomas E. Green7 "the speaker of last evening has had a rather no table career as minister and lecturer. He has been on the lecture platform for twenty-seven years, Ove years ex clusively. During this time Tie has been chaplain general of the Sons o the Revolution, four times chaplain o Democratic national conventions, grand- prelate and grand commander of Knight Templars, elected bishop o Iowa by the Episcopal church in 1898 which office he declined. He fills more steady lecture engagements ev ery year and probably receives a larg er guarantee from his bureau than any other man in this country. It was gratifying to most of those present to see the officers of the grounds eject a few of the rowdies who persisted in smoking cigarettes inside the auditorium and It will be Just as gratifying to see the selling of refreshments during the programs stopped also. Senator Curtis was somewhat sur prised that he should be called upon to speak on fatriot aay witnoui a sin gle flag upon the platform. The nags were not long in coming after he men tioned the matter. The headquarters of the different organizations have a more complete appearance today and are becoming centers of activity. The program for tomorrow is as fol lows: 2:30 p. m.

Dean, special attorney for the Mutual Life Insurance company of New Ycrk.Ieft Topeka this afttmcon for Law rence to make a demand upon the heirs and the executors of the estate of the late L. H. Perkins for the return of the life insurance policy for $100,000 issued by the Mutual Life Insurance to Mr. Perkins a few months before his death. This request being refused Mr. Dean will ask permission to have the body of Mr. Perkins exhumed in order that a postmortem examination may be made. It is assumed that the Mutual Life Insurance company Is preparing to resist the payment of its policy upon the life of Mr. Perkins on the grounds that his fall from the roof of his home June 1 last was not accidental. The fact that Mr. Perkins carried In surance to the extent of more than $650, 000, the policies for which had been ta ken out only a short time previously, caused comment.

That the Banking Trust company of Kansas City, Kan., the general man ager of which is John W. Breidenthal, formerly state bank commissioner, paid much per head for every new depos itor that it secured was revealed today in a peculiar suit for damages brought by the bank against the W. F. Burns company of Chicago. Under the con tract the value of a new depositor to the bank was seemingly worth $1.70 but under - normal conditions . a new ac count, it Is stated, in the amended pe tition, to be worth 50 cents. The Bank ing Trust company is one of the com paratively new institutions of Kansas City, Kan., and forms a species of clearing house for a number of other banks within the state In which John Breidenthal Is Interested. The presi dent is C. B. Hoffman, of Enterprise, while Breidenthal is general manager. It is capitalized at $200,000. The suit in the first petitions ask for damages against the plaintiff of $7,820, while In the amended petition further damages to the amount of $2,000 are asked. The suit was removed from the court of common pleas of Wyandotte county to the' United States circuit court. It was-first filed May 8 .but. the filiXSC cf the suit has evidently been kept quiot. The claim is made that the W. F. Burns company of Chicago, C. W. Sil ver acting as agent, were to bring in 5.000, new customers to the bank. For this and small pocket savings to the number of 5.000 the Chicago company Was to get $10,000. In the first petition It Is claimed that the Burns company quit after bringing in 2,900 depositors, of whom it is stated only 400 really intended to maintain accounts while the balance were simply induced by the defendant to deposit 25 cents in order that the defendant might claim $1.70 for each person .so deposit ing, the understanding being that 25 cents should be the minimum opening. In the amended petition it is stated that the number of new depositors by the campaign method was 2,991, while of this number, it is stated, 1,991 only deposited 25 cents, leaving 1,000 deposi tors who had an account in excess of the minimum. Vt is figured that in re ality 4,000 deposits were lost because of the failure of the Burns company .o maintain their contract of bringing in 5,000 customers and that these ware worth on the open market at least 60 cents. It Is estimated that tne aaru age due to the deprivation of the value of these accounts is worth $2,000. Ad ditional damages are cited in the amended petition to the amount of $1, 530, but the damages asked under this petition amount to $2,000. RIVER IS RISING. But It AVon't Reach Danger Point' in Topeka. Reports received" by the weather bu reau in this city this morning rrom Manhattan and Blue Rapids indicate a decided rise In the Blue river at those points and a rise in the Kaw at this point is expected to follow in the course of the next 24 hours. At Man hattan the Blue river has attained a depth of a little more than ten feet, or a rise of four and one-half feet during the past 24 hours. At Blue Rapids the measurements Indicate a depth of five feet which is near the danger point at this place. The rise In the Blue at these points is the result of the heavy rains of Sun day night and early morning which In that locality and above amounted to almost a cloudburst, as between six and seven Inches of precipitation were recorded. No fear need be anticipated at this point as the rises at the points men tioned will but slightly affect the Kaw at Topeka and the government office in this city figures that- the rise will amount to less than two feet. The Kaw has been steadily falling since yesterday noon and the rise which is reported will not bring the water up to the point reached yesterday noon. Sand bars are visible at many points at this time and the feeling of unrest which has existed in North Topeka Is not warranted by the reports which have been received from points up the Kaw. Drowned in the Minnesota. St. Paul, Mlnn July 17. James Strane. an Instructor In the University of Utah at Salt Lake City, "was acci- tentally drowned in the Minnesota river near Fort Snelling last night. Strane, who had been spending his vacation with his parents in this city. was canoeing on the Minnesota with a companion. The canoe was over turned and Strane was drowned.

The trial of Karl Hau, charged with the murder of his mother-in-law, Frau Mollter, in Baden Baden, on the even ing of November 6, 1906, began In this city today. Hau was at one time pro fessor of Roman law in George Wash ington university,. Washington. D. C. He practiced law in Washington up to the time of his going abroad with his family about a year1 ago. After the alleged murder he fled . to London. where he was taken into custndv. Later he was returned to Germany and as many people claimed he was in sane, the question of his mental condi tion was thoroughly investigated, with the result that he was formally de clared to be In his right mind. l. Mrs. Hau committed . suicide by drowning in June of this year, leaving a farewell letter in which she said she could no longer bear the sorrow . of living apart from her husband. It was once reported that Hau had confessed to the murder of Frau Mo liter, but this was later denied. Hau entered the court room .today three minutes before the session open ed. He was accompanied by his coun sel, Dr. Dletz. and two gendarmes. One of these officers sat immediately behind the prisoner during the entire session, the muzzle of his rifle showing above the back of the seat occupied by the prisoner. Hau made a prepossessing appearance. He was dressed in a well fitting Prince Albert coat and light trousers. His hair was neatly trimmed. His beardless face Is broad, he has a massive brow and his eyebrows are strongly arched. Today his Hps were often tightly compressed but it could be seen that his mouth Is large. His general appearance was that of a young clergyman of unusual ability - . - - . and force for his 26 years.

THOMAS CLAIMS RIGHTS Says He Was Not Kalrly Treated in DcvHrj Proceedings. Claiming that C. A. Loomls of the City National bank of Kansas City, Mo., holds in trust - property worth $250,000 belonging to him, W. E. Thomas of Leavenworth, former busi ness associate of C. J. Devlin confessed indebtedness to the extent of $150,000. According to his own representations in a hearing held today and participat ed In by attorneys from Leavenworth, Kansas City and Topeka before N. H. Loomis, special referee, Thomas Is not a bankrupt. - A species of trusteeship was created to hold this property for the benefit of his family, declared Thomas in order that It might not be taken to relieve indebtedness which rightfully Devlin should have met. The property is lo cated in Kansas City near to the site of the proposed new union depot and Includes the Kansas City Coal and Coke company's land and ownership of which the Devlin trustees dispute with Thomas. In his efforts to secure this property for his family Thomas claims that he had agreed to purchase 96 shares of the City National bank at the - par value of $100, that he was under a moral obligation to take this stock though no written contract existed and that being unable to purchase the stock when the time came to pay in the midst of the Devlin failure he sim ply signed over the $250,000 of prop erty. It also came out in the proceedings that Mrs. Devlin assigned to Thomas $90,000 of life insurance held by Dev lin which Thomas managed to secure in order to protect himself if pos sible. This life Insurance was later secured by the City National. The hearing has been in session for two days and has not yet come to a con clusion. "C0L"B0YD IS RELIEVED Old Rock Pile Gnard Too Infirm for Added Duties. "Colonel" Richard Boyd, the ante bellum negro who has been in charge of the rock pile at the city Jail for the past 22 years was relieved this morning by Mayor William Green to make room for a younger and more active man. and G. W. Cannon was appointed to succeed him. It has been more than a quarter of a century since Colonel Boyd began to work for the city and he has been on the payroll almost constantly sipce. He Is now well past the three score and ten mark and has outlived his use fulness and the change has been con templated under every administration for years. While at work for the eit in' the street department he was burled In an excavation for a sewer and was so badly Injured that he has been unfit for active service since that time. The position as guard of the rock pile was given him and the understanding has always been that the city would care for him as It Is responsible for his crip pled condition. Of late years the prisoners on the rock pile have had but little trouble in mak ing their escape when ever they chose, owing to the Infirm condition -or the old guard. Now that the- prisoners are to be used on the streets In cutting weeds it has been found necessary to secure the seryices-of a more active guard P'ace as been made-for Colonel Boyd but it is understood that he will be placed in charge of the city dump or given some place where the duties are light so that he will not want.- It seems to be the feeling . of - those in charge of the city's affairs that a place of some kind be given to the old man who has served the city so faithfully for more than 25 years. G. W. Cannon who will succeed Colonel Boyd is a col ored man also, but many years younger and has had experience In this line of work, having been !n charge of the rock pile prior to the appointment of Boyd. STATEMAKES A BET. Wagers $3,500 on Securing Water for Parsons Asylum. The state 6f : Kansas agreed this morning to gamble a little with Bailey & Waugh. a southern Kansas drilling firm, on the pcssibilitv of getting a well of good drinking water at the Parsons hospital for the insane. The state of Kansas bets Bailey & Waugh $3. .-.00 that they can't dig a well at Parsons which will furnish 7,500 gal lons of good water an hour. If Bailey & Waugh can deliver the well, they will get the $3,500.-. If they can't they got nothing for their labor. Such are the terms of a contract en tered into ' this . morning at the offices of the state, board of control. Of course mere is -nothing said about its being a bet In the official records but It is a bet, just - like many other business ventures made upon contingent fees. At me pra3at time, there Is not any thing sit Parsons In.-, the way of .drink ing water except surface water. No one has cared to take the chance of drilling a deep well, in the hope of get ting plenty .of good water. The state has decided to- sake, this chance. Bailey & Waugh is a firm- which has made specialty of, drifting deep wells In searc? of water. They have drilled a number of cuch' wells down near Joplin and Col umbus,: ana they believe that the geo logical formations at Parsons are ex actly ' the same. They expect to find water fn Just the same relative geologi cal strata that they did at Joplin, which is known to "the trade as the Mis sissippi limestone." The Mississippi limestone seems to be about the bottom of the world for this particular section. Drillers find many interesting things as they do down into the earth. In eastern Kansas until they hit the . Mississippi lime stone, which Is very hard and rebel lious, and takes the edge off from drilling tools at an alarming rate. And they can drill and drill Into Mississippi limestone .until they are tired, and it is always' tile same. But Bailey & Waugh found that by drilling to I certain place hTthe Mississippi lime- of very f " "-"t SL, . crr.r-.tt frcen water TnlB -vv This was true of ' lrle region about Joplin, and they think It Is also true of Parsons. They are willing to gamble on the prospect a little, anyway, and drill the well for nothing if they fail to deliver the well. It Is about 800 feet to the Mississip pi limestone at Parsons, and the dril lers expect to have to go from 200 to 400 feet Into this hard, flinty rock to reach the stream of water. The hole will be ten Inches in diameter at the top, and it will be cased 8 Inches wide down to the ' Mississippi limestone. Then the hole will be only 8 inches wide, with 6-inch casing. It is necessary to "case out" the salt water which is encountered iri going down to the IlrBestone. When the drill ers strike the "stream . of fresh i water down In the bowels of the earth, they expect it to come up to within about 100 feet of the top of the well. Then a deep pump wlU bf put into take it the rest of the way.- ; : Bailey & WaUgh' are' playing for much bigger. stakes than $3,500, however. It is certain that If Kansas can tap the undiscovered stream of fresh water with its well, there will be many other wells drilled at once. .The Katy railroad will want -several, arid other big water users will have their own wells. The city itself may decide to. get its water from deep At present It is costing the state about $600 a year for water for the Parsons hospital. If it can get a well of its own. It will saves the cost of the well in five or six years. taftText month. The Secretary Will Make His Promised Speech In Oklahoma. Washington, July 17.

The county commissioners released Frank Thomas, a notorious negro Jointist, from the county jail yesterday without consulting- either Sheriff Wilkerson or County Attorney John Schenck and these officials have donned the war paint and left the reservation. Thomas was arrested several months ago charged with run ning a joint in North Topeka and pleaded guilty to two counts and was fined $200 and given sixty days in jail. So far he has served the 60 day sentence and 65 days on the fine and as he promised to forever quit selling liquor and leave the county if released the county commissioners thought that they had made a bargain. The sheriff and county attorney take a dif ferent view of the mattef and while County Attorney Schenck says that the beard, according to law. has a per fect right to take the action which ihey did that they should not have done so as It will have a bad effect on the prosecutions which are pending on similar charges..
