5' SEND PROXIES TO FISH. Stockholder in Illinois Central Still Put Faith in Him. . New York. Aug. J'-stUS?n Fish being asked as to his position In respect to the next meeting of .tne stockholders of the Illinois Central railroad said: . . , ' "Within the last few days Que number of stockholders of the I1Iln's Central railroad company nave sent me their proxies to vote at the next annual meeting, to be held in nlcago on Wednesday, October 16. if"' "Others have written on the subject. Being unable to reply promptly to each, I take opportunity to say wnat rny position is: , ' "On November 7. 1906. the several directors of the company held shares therein as follows: John Jacob Astor, 7.000; John W. Auchincioss. 600; 'Charles M. Beach. 600; James Vk. Cutting, 300; Stuyvesant Fish. 12.452; Robert W. Goelet. 8.620; J. T. Hara han, 144; E. H. Harriman, 130; Wal ter Luttgen. 500; Charles A. Peabody, 600; Cornelius Vanderbilt. 1.485; John C. Welling.' 200. Total. 32.430. "So far as I know the holdings of the others have not changed material- ' ly since that time and mine has not th any particular, as I still own and hold the same certificates for the 12, 452 shares, "The directors whose terms expire this autumn are Mr. Astor. Mr. Harri man and myself, whose successors will be elected for terms of four years. A fourth director will have to be elected by the stockholders for a term of one year in the place of Mr. John C. Welling, deceased. "I long since reached the con clusion that, although I owe a great deal to the stockholders for the trust which they had for more than 20 years Imposed in me as the holder of their proxies, they could not ask me to offer myself as a candidate for re election at this time. Nor am I dis posed to make any efTort to procure . proxies. In view, however, of the letters and proxies which have al ready reached me, entirely without solicitation on my part, I do feel bound, if possible, to attend the stock- . holders" meeting and shall, after hear ing what may be brought thereafter, vote my own shares and such proxies as may be confided to me, in the best interest of the owners of the whole capital stock. "I shall also in all probability ex plain as clearly as I can, to the stock holders what has been going on In the conduct of the company's business dur ing the past 12 months, and show them to what extent their board of directors Is and has been controlled by those of its number who are also directors of the Union Pacific Railway company." THE BULTeF IsIOST. Surgeons Fe.il to Kind the One in Charles Saunders' Leg. Charles Saunders, the burglar who was shot and captured by "Pop" Anderson, merchants' policeman Tue3day night, will wear the bullet which was fired into his leg from his own revolver. Dr. Kicoll. county physician, wanted to take the prisoner to a hospital for the opera tion, but the county commissioners re fused to permit it, on . account of the extra cost for hospital fees and a guard. r Therefore-Dr., Niec-il, called,-a,t the , cojin ' ty jail this morning with a kit of tools, chloroformed the prisoner and started to remove the lead. The bullet was found embedded In the thigh bone, and in pry ing It loose, the doctor let it slip down among the muscles of the leg. Then ho gave It up for a bad job, stating that the bullet could do no harm in its new lodg ing place. The prisoner was carried from the city jail to the county Jail on a cot last even ing. While he was in the city jail his shoes wer-3 stolen by some fellow prison er, and have not been recovered by the police. Saunder-: has nothing to say, and turns his face to the wall when asked ques tions concerning his pr.st GOOD TIMES ARE COMING. W. C. Stephenson Ixoks for a Bigger Boom in Residence District. Mr. W. C. Stephenson, the real estate man, says some interesting things abcul real estate values and the growth of Topeka. "After a period of depression," says Mr. Stephenson, "the first evidence - of . activity always comes in the lesidence district. It then influences the down town district and the result is hew struc tures and establishing new enterprises, and finally radiates back again increas ing the value of property throughout the city. This thing is going on in Tpeki. Wc have had the period of residence; building, the additions are laid out and built up mostly, and now we see activity around the center of the city, as, for example, the enlarging of the Topeka Bank building and other structures within a short radius. The addition to the Santa Fe shops will help in raising prices by filling up the vacant houses. "The present tendency," said he, "is to help the business of northern Kansas avenue and to build up that section. The location of the transfer station did much - to move the business section routhward and it seemed for a time that it would go farther and farther in that Olrection but the abandoning of the old system of transfers has done away with that tendency. The first evidence of this was the sale, of the Chesterfield hotel followed by the building of the McCord-Kistler wholesale house, the GlcnwDod hotel and the Marshall Bros. drug building. This district will con tinue to build up because of th: growth of the northeast part of the city, in which direction the city Is spreading most, for traffic past a point Is bound to make trade. "Few people realixe how far the city extends from the northeast to the south west." continued Mr. Stephenson, "and it would rurprise many to know that the distance Included between Oakland and the opposite limit is eight miles, but fuch Is the case. There is nothing of a boom nature in the Topeka real estate market and hap not been for years " he concluded, "and everything points 'to a steady, even growth with prosperity as sured for years to come." . 1 Birthdny Party. Mr. and Mrs: J. w. Barnett gave a birthday party for their daughter Mur re! Wednesday afternoon at their home 1322 Central avenue. The afternoon was spent in playing games. At four o'clock lunch was served, consisting of Ice cream and cake and bon bons. The little ones departed soon afterwards, each wishing Miss Murrel many happy re turns of the day.

The hat pictured in the drawing- was of natural color straw in horsehair braid, and was very simply and effectively trimmed. Shaded lilacs were set on around the crown at the back and sides, in a wreath effect. A bow of violet velvet ribbon was tied over the crown in front, this ribbon being .also used below the brim in th back. SCARED BURGLAR AWAY Neighbors Respond to Cries for Help and House Breakers Run. The whole neighborhood around the corner of West Fourteenth and Har rison streets were startled from their sleep this morning about 2:50 by the terrific screams for help coming irom the residence of H. B. Wright, a trav eling salesman, of 317 West Four teenth street. Mrs. Frederick M. Nel son was awakened and tried to arouse her husband, but before she had suc ceeded in doing this saw two men run ning one north up Harrison street, and the other in the opposite direction, disappearing into an alley. Taking her revolver with her. Mrs. Nelson started towards the Wright home and met Mr. Charles Gault, who was on his way also. Neighbors to the Rescue. As soon as Mr. Gault appeared the cries suddenly ended in a groan. Those who listened thought this meant mur der but it proved to be a groan of re lief at Mr. Gault's appearance. ' Mrs. Wright and Miss Majud Boner were alone in the house. Mr. Wright being on the road, and were awakened by some one attempting to gain an en trance Into the houe. They were terribly alarmed ' and im mediately began to scream which frightened the burglars away. They had not succeeded in doing any mischief beyond that to the nerves of the neigh borhood. It seems that some one at tempted to enter this same house one mgm last weeK wniie tne ramny was asleep but did not disturb any one, and the news was first learned from a neighbor a day or two afterward.' "A pleasant time was had" for 0 minutes, while the vigilance committee searched for a burglar, but none was found. It was discovered that some night-worker had attempted to pry up the window screen of the house. T:ie people were awakened by the clumsy work of the would-be burglar, and made the welkin, whatever that is. ring with cries of distress. The neigh bors responded nobly. DEATHS AND FUNERALS.

"I am In the race for congress," said Mr. Ham, "and even though they may not have a primary election In the Sixth, I shall stay in the fight. I am going out home tonight, and will at once commence my campaign. It looks now as though they would not have a primary in the Sixth, for the congressional fight, but I suppose that Reeder meant what he was saying when he declared -himself in favor of a primary." Mr. Ham called upon Governor Hoch this afternoon and thanked him per sonally for the appointment of attorney for the board of railroad commissioners which Governor Hoch ton-Jered him, and which he declined. "I want to assure-'you, governor," said JVTr. Ham. "that your, administration has my very best wishes..

She took a large grading contract on the Kansas City, Mexico and Orient rail road, between Sweetwater, Texas, and Knox City, more than a year ago, and fhe came out so well with it that she has enlarged her outfit and is now at work on a large contract on the same road between Sweetwater and San Angelo. ' , . ..She not only finances the jobs but she superintends the grading work personally. She, lives in the grading camp and spends- most of her time on the stretches of grade, directing the work of the laborers and other em ployes. She started in with 20 mu:e teams, but her outfit has been great ly increased recently. It is said that she will permit no shirking on the part of any employe. They must- do their work well and put in full hours at. it. - - ... - Over in Silver City. N. M., Mrs. L. w.

' a iew years ago little was known of the Canadian provinces to the west or Manitoba, and indeed of Manitoba iieeii., ana au tnrs vast region wa thought of only as a frigid waste from which came the cold waves which peri odlcally sweep across the United States, carrying frost into Texas and even to the orange groves-of Florida. But lately it has been found that that country is one of exceeding fertility, the richness of soil and the brightness of sunshine combining to make it ad- miraDiy adapted to the growing of wneai, uespite the pitiful brevity of its summer. A migration of large propor tions has been setting in from the United States and Eurone. and this re gion now promises to become one of tne great granaries of the world. The cold of winter Is long continued and intense, but the heat of summer is am pie in intensity and duration for the ripening of grain, the soil is rich, and the unoccupied land is of almost limit less extent, - and capable of supporting a very large population, so that the prosperity of this new territory would seem to be assured. There Is but one cloud overshadowing this hoped for prosperity, ana this lev "to abandon the language of metaphor for that of fact, the absence of cloud. . The country Is one of almost continuous sunshine, the brilliancy of the light equaling that of the tropics, and if it is really the light rather than the heat which bars tropi cal lands to the white man, as Wood ruff contends, the prosperity . of the Canadian Northwest promises , to be shortlived: As those who have read Major Wood ruff s interesting book know, he holds that the failure of the white races to colonize the tropics is due, not to the heat of these regions, but to the ex cess of light which there prevails. The Eui opeans who have been most suc cessful in colonizing tropical regions. that is, who have themselves peopled the colonies and not merely ruled them by a constantly changing staff of offi cials, are the natives of the Iberian Peninsula, a dark-skinned race; and to blonds, Woodruff a'sserts, tropical lands are fatal. If it is the heat rather than the light that is injurious, the white man should prosper more - than the black man, an 1 the blond more than the . brunette, eince presence of pig ment in the skin distinctly favors the penetration of the heat rays. But the white man, especially the blond, suf fers in the tropics; after a period of exhilaration and sense of well-being, he becomes disinclined to labor, grows neurasthenic, and finally breaks down physically and mentally. This Wood ruff attributes, to .the action of the ac tinic rays of light, which penetrate the more readily the less of pigment there is in the skin and hair, and he, there fore, concludes, that it is the light rather than the "heat which bars the white man from the tropics. In the Western Canada Medical Journal Rev. E. C. Heustis asserts that' the inhabitants of Manitoba and the adjacent territories are unduly neurasthenic, and, adopting Wood ruff's theory, attributes this condition to the excess of sunshine with which that country is blessed or cursed, ac cording to the point of view. In the issue of the same journal for May of this year. Dr. A. G. Welsford contro verts Mr. Heustis' contention, and as serts that sunshine is a blessing. He concedes that sunshine is destructive to protoplasm, but says that the actinic-ravs do not senetrate the sklh to I; any ?extenti:th0 deeper- tissues; toeing protected?)" the epidermis, and espe cially by the dermis, which is suffused with red blood offering a. barrier as effective as the black pigment of the negro's skin.. The reason , why Euro peans do not thrive in the tropics is, he maintains, that they are attuned to colder climates, and when transplant ed to warm regions live under ab normal conditions of heat rather than of light. He does not deny that the denizens of the sunlit regions of northern Canada suffer from neu rasthenic, states, but he asserts that these depend "in no way upon the sunshine," except as this may have an indirect effect by reason of its tonic properties which lead to the undue expenditure of energy. In another part of' his article he admits, indeed, that intense 'and long continued sun shine may prove exhausting, but he rejects Woodruff's theory of its action, attributing (ts possible evil effects to eyestrain, resulting from the glare. We fear Dr. Welsford has not proved his case, for he concedes that intense sunlight may be injurious, differing from Woodruff and Heustis only in his explanation of Jts action. The farmers who are now peopling west ern Canada are not going to wear col ored glasses' to prevent eyestrain, and they are not' going to take life easy, for they, must work hard to reap their harvest before the winter frost, and they will not work the less hard be cause the light' stimulates them to greater endeavor. An interesting experiment Is being worked out .in Manitoba, and it is one which should in its results confirm or refute Woodruff's theory. If he is ccrrect.'the movement of wheat grow ers, most of "whom are Scandinavians or men of other blonde races, to northwest Canada is doomed to fail ure.. Those who are now building up the country will fall by the way, and their farms will be abandoned or will be taken by fresh immigrants ignor ant of the forces against which they will in vain contend. If the pros perity of the northwest continues, if the population is permanent, and If success rewards the labors of the set tlers in this land of sunshine. Major Woodruff will ' have to add a chapter to his interesting book explaining the antidotal effect of cold, or of some other natural force, upon the deleteri ous action of sunlight. Medical Record. : ..... A SEA RAILWAY. The Roadbed Nosing Its Way Among Florida's Keys. Exactly three years ago were begun the preliminary surveys of the Flagler railroad across the Florida keys from Miami to Key West: Early the follow ing spring construction gangs started work in the jungle swamps of mangrove from Homestead, the beginning of the extension, to Land'H End, or the point at which the proposed railroad should leave the mainland of the Florida peninsula. The track Is now laid on the mainland for twenty-nine miles, thence it pene trates nineteen miles of mangrove tan gle through which dredges ate their way, piling what material they dug, in mak ing their own channel, on the embank ment upon which the track now rests, dn Key Largo, the largest of the islands, the track continues for sixteen miles, its embankment built .entirely of coraline limestone, as ih the case of every one of the railroad embankments crossing the keys. ' At the southwestern end of Key Largo, Tavernicr creek, which separates it from Plantation key, is crossed by a steel bridge with concrete piers and abutments. Completely obstructing th? line of grade on Key Largo was found an inland lake , not encountered In the preliminary survey, half a mile wide and with six feet depth of water, the bottom of which was wholly composed of peat. In order to displace this peat and sink a more stable foundation for the embankment two dredges worked constantly for fifteen months. On Lonr key the line of grade is completed and at its southern extremity the first of the viaduct work is progressing rapidly. This viaduct will when completed con sist of 184 concrete arches, reinforced with steel, fifty feet on centers, and will span the arm of the ocean between Long and Grassy k ;ys. It is undoubted ly the most interesting construction work of the extension. At present there ire about twenty of these arches com pleted and some ten or twelve more are well under way. In the construction of these concrete arches the generally adopted method of railroad bridge-build ing is employed. Pier piles ana arcn bent piles are first sunk and coffer damd lowered and pumped-out A seal of con crete is then placed at the bottom of the coffer dam and uoon this the' Concrete construction of the pier rests. Twisted steel reinforcing rods are placed In posi tion, the upper ends protruding from tho top of the concrete pier. The arch-bent plies are then ready to receive the arch forms. Every fifth one of the arches of a broader f pan than fifty feet on cen ter, and this single piece of viaduct work will cross 10,500 feet of comparatively open seaway. This -concrete construc tion comDleted at the time withstood a severe test during the hurricane of a year ago and it remained Intact, al though the arch forms used In the fram ing of the completed arches were entire ly demolished. Of the viaduct construc tion there will he altogether aoout six miles, the longest single one being be tween Knight's and State keys, crossing in Its continuance the small Pigeon keys, having a total length of 15,100 feet. Forty-seven hundred feet more of this arch work crosses the open harbor of Bahla Honda. Both this and the Knight's key channel viaduct are unprotected from the force of the Atlantic ocean. From Bahia Honda the route crosses to West Summerland keys and then to Big Pine key, in which the grading is all completed. South of this point large land forces are assembled. Two camps full of men are now engaged in making a 9.000-foot embankment fill between Stock Island and the Boca Chica. the first two . keys in order north of Key West. Adjacent to the latter town 170 acres of water are being filled on which to erect adequate, docks, yards and re pair shops. No contractors are employed on the construction ' Of the extension, and all work is done by the railroad itself un der the supervision of the vice presi dent. Supplies and, until recently. water for the .men in the camps are brought all the way from Miami by the company's stern-wheel steamers the water being in husre tanks built on barges for the purpose. Later a water supply was discovered at Mana tee creek, fifty miles south of Miami, which facilitates matters materially. Often, - however, a northwest wind springs up and blows so much water out of the bay that the steamers are unable to reach Manatee creek, thus necessitating the prolonged and tedi ous trir to the orielna! source of sup ply. Even the excavators were from three to four months In getting In on the line of actual construction work, having. In many cases, to dig their own channels in order to find enough water to float them. Boat?, supplying these excavator crews w!h food and water were of ten compelled . to travel from eight to nine miles to the ex cavators when the actual distance would rarely exceed one mile. Just when this railroad will be completed and its actual cost is a matter of con jecture. In an almost incredibly short space of time it has nosed its way through swamp and lowland for over half of the proposed distance. Nat urally enough, the most tedious part is the -concrete viaduct construction, and but three years more was given as the original tlmejimit to complete the entire extension. ,In advent of a future hurricane such'as this region Is sub ject to during the fall months the season for these destructive disturb ances being in September and October, the eyes, of the engineering world will be turned in the direction of the sea going railroad. Whether the pessim ists or the' Optimists will dare say, "I told you so," will depend entirely upon the effect a repetition of the storm of last year will have upon the work. Doubtless the uncompleted fills will suffer, but, judging from past experi ence, the concrete viaducts and the line of - grade already finished should be able-, to withstand any-tropical wlndburst which the region can offer.
