Street Naming System Will Not Be Changed. The city council struck a live wire when they suggested that the streets In the south part of the city have new names and new limits. Last night a "riot call" was sent to the residents living in the vicinity of Central Park and under the sheltering eaves of the Central Park Christian church about fifty men brandished their weapons and planned their battle formation. The main protest was against the ac tion of the council in giving "Burlin game avenue" to the street in ques tion and at the next meeting of the council the residents will petition the council to listen to their wishes before they continue on their street christ ening crusade. The grounds on which the residents will fight are based on the following motion adopted last night without a nay vote: "That this meeting favors the exten sion of Buchanan street to Central park avenue and thence south over what is now Lincoln street to the south city limits as Buchanan street and the extension of Clay street over what is now Buchanan street from Central park to the south city limits." Two members of the city council street naming committee were present E. F. Stanley and W. G. Tandy. They took an active part in the meet ing and said that if the residents of these streets desired a change in name and did not favor the suggestions of the city council all they had to do was to circulate a petition showing that their ideas conformed with the Ideas of a majority of the citizens in this district and th council would accede to their wishes. The meeting decided to send out a petition at once and it will be presented at the committee meeting of the council some time next week. This meeting was scheduled to come off tonight but the councilmen present announced that it would be postponed for the benefit of the resi dent.'. ' When the names of Central Park avenue from Sixteenth to Seventeenth street and Lincoln street from Sev ententh street to the city limits are changed to Buchanan street and when Buchanan street from Sixteenth street (south end of Central Park) to the city limits Is changed to Clay street it mearis that Clay street proper from Sixteenth street to the south city lim its will be without a n.ime. The meet ing last night suggested that this be called Central Park avenue and to those attending the meeting this name Founded as good as any. But a final motion resolved to leave the matter to the residents on this street and if they want to name It after Napoleon or even Joe Cannon they are free to do It. The "Burlingame avenue" proposi tion suggested by the council was downed for good. The people on this street say that it sounds too much like "Burlingame road" and they have a horror of living i nthe "rubarbs." No country life for them when the street earn and pavements run past their door. The meeting resulted in a final settlement of the street naming trou ble and when the residents attend the next meeting of the council committee and receive official recognition they can change their addresses and live happily ever afterward. i Buys Interest in the itar.

An enthu siastic meeting was held here yester day morning for the purpose of tak ing preliminary steps towards the for mation of a Kansas State Baseball league for the season of 1909,-and if the plans of . the faithful ones . go through as per schedule there will be a state league formed that will be but a grade lower than the Western as sociation. - ' - It Is the idea of the patrons of the game here to organize an eight or ten town league and communications have been sent to the following cities to ob tain an expression of opinions as to their willingness to become members of such a league: Atchison, Leaven worth, Ottawa, Emporia. Junction City, Manhattan, Abilene, Salina, Hutchinson, Winfield and Arkansas City, which, with Newton, makes a to tal of twelve towns, although it is not probable that more than ten of the above towns would be formed into a league, even though the entire twelve should desire admittance. Hutchinson, having dropped out of the Western association,' is anxious to come Into .such a league as this . Em poria has been dishing out baseball dope for a couple of years and has fin ally succeeded in arousing the sports to the point where they are anxious to take up the matter. Ottawa has the microbes of the disease lurking around in that vicinity, as also has Abilene. Salina had a taste of the real thing last year and wants a repetition of the dose next season. Arkansas City has always been a good ball town and will undoubtedly want to get Into a league, while it is known that the other towns mentioned have enough sports to back teams in their respective localities. It is the Intention, as soon as re plies are received to the letters sent out. to call a meeting here, having a representative from each town present, and take definite action in the way of forming a Kansas State league. Newton expects to form a stock company and obtain a charter under the laws of the state of Kansas. She is going into the baseball business in earnest, for her experience last year has whetted the appetites, so to speak of the patrons of the great national game and nothing will suffice now but the best that is to be had. KLECTKIC CHAIR GOT HIM. W. B. rsrasoh Killed His Wife More Than Two Years Aso.. Auburn. N. Y., Nov. 28. William Robert Brasch, the Rochester wife mur derer, in whose case Governor Hughes refused to interfere, was electrocuted in Auburn prison today.

Warden Benham issued invitations for Monday but the execution was postponed to hear from a special commission named by the governor to Inquire into Brasch's mental condition. The commission saw Brasch Saturday and Sunday and then reported to the governor that the man was sane. On Tuesday the governor denied the application for a stay and the execution was set for this morning. MAN STRONGER THAN HORSE Richard Crokcr So Declared After Witnessing Marathon Race. New York. Nov. 2 8. Human en durance, as shown in the professional Marathon race at Madison Square garden on Wednesday night, when Dorando, the Italian, defeated John J. Hayes of this city, is greater than that of the horse, according to Rich ard Croker, former chief of Tam many hall. Commenting on the race, Mr. Croker said: "Those boys furnished the greatest exhibition of running that I have ever witnessed. When you come to think of it, that record was a merit orious one. No horse that I know of could run twenty-six miles at an aver age rate of a mile in six minutes for the entire distance. It would kill him. But those boys did It without great distress " Shot Mother and Brother. New York, Nov. 28. With aim so deadly that all five shots he fired took effect, Wm. Ka'.lebrun of Jersey City shot and killed his brother Leo, and then his aged mother, Mrs. Victoria Kanebrun, three bullets were fired into the body of the murderer's broth er and two Into his mother's. ' The tragedy took place in the aoartment of Mrs. Kallebrun in this city. Kalle brun had come from Jersey City with a friend Albert Trogunwyes, to secure money fro mhis brother Leo and the shooting resulted from the fact that Leo would not give them money. AT THE CAPITAL.

Th Te Is Less Idle 3!aehinery Than Previously Kc ported.... AKE SOME WEAK SPOTS Du fo Unseasonable Wea'li r and Loir Prices. Bank Clearings G?n ra ly Show Lai Gains' New York. Nov. 28. Bradstreets says: Wholesale trade, crop and industrial developments are generally in the direc tion of improvement. There is less idle machinery and the tone of affairs gen erally is still cheerful but there are numerous irregularities noted in condi tions in different sections and indus tries. The situation as a whole, there fore lacks some of the uniformity which characterized it some time ago. More optimism and strength Is exhibited in the leading lines of domestic manufac ture and wholesale trade, particularly as to me outlook for next year, and manufacturers are buving more freely of most raw materials while wholesalers report evidences of scarcity in many lines, especially cotton goods, for spring and later delivery next year. in retail trade there is a good deal of irregularity though the advent of rains and snows followed by colder weather helped to improve conditions as the week advanced. Southern trade, however, was rather dull throughout due to warm weather and the low price of cotton and even In parts of the west as wen as the entire eastern hair or the country retail buying might be better. In some lines of trade, especial ly Iron and steel, there Is a disposition to regard tariff discussion as a bar to fullest activity. Collections are better at the south and money is in better demand for business purposes. Higher prices for leather, a turn in the tide of shoe shipments, predications Of .freer buying of railway materials of iron and steel and higher prices with smaller sales of raw wool are leading incidents of the week.

PASTEURIZATION NOW C0MPULSARY Demands for Tuberculin Test So Harsh Makes Pasteurization ,j Almost Imperative. The day of pure food laws, and the enforcement of pure food laws is at hand. Nearly every city in the. land ia passing stringent pure food regulations. Nearly all cities of any importance are establishing separate offices for the var ious duties of pure food inspectors and weights, and measures regulations. Such widespread agitation upon the purity .of what we eat, while sometimes somewhat radical is, it " appears, not witnout some deep underlying cause. ' Milk is probably the' most common ar ticle of ordinary diet, and it is upon this commodity that the great bulk of the reform laws are directed. Scien tists, it seems, ' have proven beyond a doubt that the animal tuberculin can and is, transmitted from the cow to man. At any rate, too much precaution can not be taken to prevent the spread of this terrible and dreaded disease, and it only by constant and co-operated ef fort that It will eventually be stamped out. The increase of victims claimed each year, by this death dealing scourge, is reaching alarming propor tions. Each year's death rate statis tics, shows an ever increasing number, due to "the white plague." The only practical way to effectually deal with the disease, recommended by science, is to establish colonies for those already in its clutches, and the exclusive use of pasteurized milk by those who have escaped the germs. The process of pasteurization, almost wholly eliminates the bacteria germs, and yet does not detract any of the natural nutriment from the milk. Milk which has passed through this process, is said to be almost free from sediment and bacteria germs. This fact was proven by the Kansas state university at Lawrence, early in the fall. The amount of germs in the raw milk var ies with the approach of colder weath er, when they decrease in number and the number contained in milk also be comes less in proportion, after having passed the pasteurization process. Figures of a more recent test given out by the Topeka Pure Milk company, show that milk which had passed the pasteurization process in their plant, only a few weeks ago, to contain only about 5,000 bacteria germs. This it will be readily seen, is an extremely small amount, when compared with sixty eight million, seven hundred and four thousand. Topeka people who use this milk should consider themselves excep tionally fortunate, that such a high standard of purity, in milk is avail able. Probably the most radical, and sweep ing ordinance In the country, in regard to pure milk regulations, has but re cently been passed by the city council of Chicago. . It requires that all milk. butter, 'or milk products of any nature, must have passed the pasteurization process. The only alternative, it offers the milkman, dairyman, or small creamery concern, is for the milk to have been taken from cows which have passed a strict and difficult examina tion. So harsh are the requirements that must be met. it is almost impossi ble to conform with them. This will practically necessitate the pasteuriza tion all milk or milk products, to be used in Chicago hereafter. By such pure food regulations, pure milk laws and a constant fight on the part of science, tuberculosis will with out doubt, finally be conquered, but it will not be without cleanly living, and an ever constant fight upon the source of Its cause by the people as a whole. TODAY'S MARKET KE FORTS Chicago. Nov. 28. WHEAT Decreased receiDts in the northwest caused moderate strength in the local wheat market to day, but the volume of trade was small owing to a scarcity of offerings.
