Preparing Papers in the Cald-

Issue to Be Checked Up to Con

N. A. Yeager Will Try to Proye
He Was Elected Judge.
Judge K. W. Sturges of Concordia is
In Topeka preparing the papers to be
filed in the contest case of W. W.
Caldwell against William M. Moore for
the Job of state senator from the
Thirty-second district composed of
Cloud and Republic counties. On the
face of the returns, Moore was elected
by 20 votes, and was given the certifi
The method of procedure will be for
Mr. Caldwell to file a formal notice on
Mr. Moore stating that he expects to
contest the election. He will file a
similar notice with the secretary of
state. "When the legislature convenes,
the secretary of state will communicate
to the senate the fact that Mr. Moore's
seat is contested, and the senate will
appoint a committee to take up the
case. The contest will involve a re
count of all the votes cast in the dis
trict ; ." .
Judge Sturges said today: "When
there about 8.000 votes cast, a. majority
of 20 is very small, and there are quite
likely to have been enough mistakes in
counting ballots to turn the election
the other way. We simply say that
Mr. Caldwell has a good chance to win
on a recount. We think that there may
have been a good many railroad votes
miscounted, and a good many Caldwell
votes thrown out which should nave
been counted. We do not charge any
fraud, but simply hold that the possi
bility of error is so great that a con
test is Justifiable. I do not think that
Mr. Caldwell is especially anxious to
make a contest, but the people of Cloud
county will back him in the fight. We
think that we ought to have the sena
tor from that district if he was legally
'No contest has yet been started by
Mr. Caldwell, but I am free to state
that I think there may be one in due

member of the house recently elected
to represent Rawlins county, is a can

cratic Member of the legislature
From Rawlins County.
county, and at the 1905 session by Ed
Kerns of Logan county.
Malone is said to be 32 years old,
which is rather well along in years for
anvone to hold the Job to which he
aspires. Fisher will not give up the
place without a contest.
Mr. Malone is in partnership with
Peter Wenzel in the ownership of the
Beaver Valley Roller Mills at Hern
don. They also own an elevator, and
are said to be making money hand
over fist. Wenzel is the brother of tbe
Catholic priest at Herndon, and both
Wenzel and Malone are popular and
rising young men.
It is reported here that N. A. Yea
ger of Aususta, Butler county, who
was beaten for. judge of the Thirteenth
judicial district by G. P. Aikman, the
Republican candidate, will contest the
election. The official count shows that
Yeager was defeated by only 18 votes-
This brings to light a peculiar fact
concerning Mr. Yeager's political ex
perience. Mr. Yeager was a candidate fof the
office of county attorney of Butler coun
ty some years ago, and was defeated
by 15 votes. He was not discouraged.
He became the Democratic candidate
for representative from Butler county,
and was defeated by 19 votes. Thinking
that the third time might be the charm
he tried to get the job of district Judge,
and lost it by only 18 votes.
C. H. Brilhart, of Elk county, who
was assistant chief clerk of the house
at the 1907 session, and chief clerk
at the special session of 1908, is in
Topeka starting his boom for chief
clerk of the house at the coming ses
sion. Thus far Mr. Brilhart has no
opposition, and the old members of
the house will probably line up
pretty strongly for him. as he was
well liked by everyone. He made
an excellent record as chief clerk,
and thoroughly understands the duties
of the office.

Captain Frederick I. Dean, Formerly
of Kansas, Passes Away.
Washington, - Nov. 26. Captain
Frederick I. Dean, former resident of
Kansas and Missouri, died here Tues
day. His remains were Interred at
Arlington National cemetery today
with military honors and the cere
mony of the Grand Army of the Re
public. In 1857, Captain Dean engaged in
newspaper work as city editor of the
Daily Express of St. Louis. While in
St. Louis he connected himself with
the Missouri militia, becoming a mem
ber of Company A, Second regiment,
Missouri state infantry. In 1860 he
went with his company into a brigade
of state troops under Brigadier gen
eral Bowen, the command proceeding
tr the Kansas border, ostensibly to
suppress General Lane and Dr. Jami
son in their attacks on the borders or
Missouri and Kansas. Later he served
in the civil war, and finally located in
eastern Kansas, where he lived until
1S93. when he came to wa&ningion
and since remained. Here he was
prominently identified with the Grand
Army organization.
"What is the Kansas legislature go
ng to do this winter?" was asked of
Samuel G. Harris or Kansas city;
Kan., who is in the city.
"Most anything." was the brief and
comprehensive reply of the son of the
Sunflower state. His reply not being
sufficiently elucidating, in his opinion,
he added that Representative Mitchell
would trv to secure an enactment or
law prohibiting the drinking or liquor
on railroad trains;
"Conductors on trains are very
much in favor of a law against drink
ing liquor on trains," said Mr. Harris.
Thev sav that drinking on tne trains
is often the cause of loud and boister
ous language, sometimes amounting to
the disturbance or tne peace or tne
passengers, but the conductors are
powerless to prevent it.
" I think also tnat Kansas snouin
have a law providing for the taxation
of inheritances. Taxes upon inherit
ances are becoming very general
throughout the state, and are provid
ing for by nearly all of them."
H. M. Johnson, a former Kansas
educator; has been appointed super
vising principal of the eighth division
of the public schools of the District of
Columbia. This division comprises
eight of the schools in Washington.
For seven years Mr. Johnson was
connected with the Holton schools, a
part of the time being in charge of
the high school and four years was
superintendent. He was second presi
dent of the Northeast Kansas Teach
ers' association. He engaged in insti
tute work for a. number of years in
the state, conducting -" the Jackson

Provident ' Association, Schools and
Churches Make Poor Happy.
To the Editor of the State Journal:
This is one day of the year when
those whose pathway is strewn with
many thorns and whose greatest prob
lem is to keep the table supplied with
the necessaries of life can forget their
many heartaches and other aches and
"eat, drink and be merry" with the
other and larger class of humanity.
The Topeka Provident association
makes no grand stand play on such a
day by a big public dinner, but in a
quiet, systematic- way sees to it that
every deserving familv in the city is
supplied with a large basket fuli of
good eatables.
The First Christian and Central
Congregational churches and the Philo
Reading club have greatly assisted by
taking several families to care for.
Various Sunday school and Bible
classes have done the same. Several
contributions in cash have been re
ceived from individuals to be used in
bringing joy to some sad hearthstone.
Special mention should be made of
the Wanamaker . school, located five
miles west of the city, the Seabrook
school and the school near the Boys'
Industrial school, each of which sent
in a large wagon loaded with pump
kins, potatoes, apples, canned fruit,
fresh meat, live chickens, and clothing
to be given to the poor. The teachers
of these schools have caught the spirit
of the age. that of consideration and
thought for our brother in distress,
the spirit of the good Samaritan. They
are teaching their pupils to become
strong, useful citizens, true Americans.
May other teachers catch the spirit by
next year.

A beautiful country town effect was

There was a big celebration at Wash

made there is hope of a smooth pave

It Is stated that both the Rock Island
