Democrats Hold the First or Cam paign of 1910. They speak of the Democracy as un terrified and it is a fitting word with which to describe the Kansas division of that great party. Beaten in the Sun flower state last fall for all the big of fices, yet already the leaders are as sembling again to lay plans for the n-xt campaign. As Chairman Hender son Martin aptly put it today when ask ed about the object of the gathering at notei lonigni: xnis is me irst council of war for the campaign 1D10." Some time ago State Chairman Mar t n announced today's meeting with the explanation that the Democrats of this state had abandoned the plan of crawl ing into their holes after the usual de feat at the polls and remaining there until the whistle blew for the next race, but proposed hereafter to keep up the organization and its work from one elec tion to the next. His call for this meet ing bore fruit today with the attend ance of the following well known lead ers from all sections of the state: J. D. Botkin of Winfleld, H. W. Far relly of Chanute, T. F. Morrison of Neo sho county, Mr. Hodges of Olathe, Tom Morgan of Ottawa. Col. Wm. Sapp of Galena, Taylor Riddle of Marion, Rutus Cove and Nees Olson of Wichita, J. C. Johnson of Peabodv. Barney Sheridan of Paola. P. H. Allbright of Winfleld, Tom Ernest of Montgomery county. These men are all in a cheerful and confident humor despite the thirtv odd thousand votes that rolled over them in this state last fall and propose to make a more effective fight in the next com paign. They will go into executive ses sion in the parlors of the Throoo to- nignt and discuss plans, issues and men for the 1910 battle. "There was never a time in the his tory of the party in this state,"' said Mr. Martin, chairman of the commit tee, "when the Democrats displayed such spirit and hopefulness as they have all of this year, both before and after election. I have received letters from the leaders and rank and file of the party in every section and they all breathe the same spirit. They are ready to give their time, efforts and money! tor the cause and expect to win nex time. There were no sore spots on any -of the gentlemen assembled except in re gard to the incident of the advertising of Mr. Botkin. Democratic candidate for governor, to be present at the stat temperance rally here last October when it was well known to Secretary Morris of the Temperance union tha Mr. Botkin and Chairman Martin had both point blank refused the invitation to the Democratic nominee to be pres sent, onlv under condition that a de bate he arranered between him and Mr. Stubbs. This condition was imposed because of the fact that on the occasion of the nrevious aDDearanee or the can didates on the same platform it had been understood that politics would be barred and Mr. Botkin had talked on other subiects only to sit afterwards sn1 list.,, tr Mr Stubbs discuss politi cal issues. After this refusal Mr. Mnrrk advertised that Mr. Botkin woiild be nresent at the rally and cap ital was made of his nonappearance Said Mr. Botkin today in discussing that incident "Mr. Norris is a Quaker preacher and T nm a Methodist preacher, all which will not prevent my telling him on the occasion of our first meeting that he is an infernal liar. I believe i iu ,i riirliifln thiner to do." TVio Democrats cast about 160,000 at tbQ last election, making Considerable gain over their efforts of the last ten years. Ttiey nave iru- momhero in the next legislature five in the senate and thirty-nine in the house. They also elected a great many county officers over the state, t-o this large and representative gather ing at the Throop hotel tonight may be regarded as an important political meeting, for it is composed of men who are cheerful and still full of fight in the face of defeat. That kind of an ad versary is always to be considered by a victor no matter how wide nis maiem It is expected that a general line of campaign for the Imocratic members of the next legislature win u upon at tonight's meeting,.

"Jolly Jess," a prominent figure in po lice court circles, attempted to board an eastbound car last night at Sixth street while too tipsy to discriminate as to the entrance and tried to mount from tne iront. Needless to say Jessie was jostled aside, somewhat bruised from the encounter. The railway company immediately summoned an ambulance but Miss Harris was too much alive for that and refused the escort. Then the hoodlum wagon arrived from the police station and Jess climbed right in as if it was her old family vehicle, which it very nearly is. Chickens. Some half dozen com plaints of running chickens are register ed at the police office every day. The police do all they can to restrain the depredations of the useful hens but a woman with a switch is a more pro per emblem of the egg finding industry than a six foot cop with a hard wood club. Perhaps the vagrant hens if locked up would produce more eggs, giv en proper food and encouragement. Eggs are worth enough to make it pay. A hen is apt to leave a priceless egg in a neighbor's barn where she finds some good scratching and clean straw. Judge "Yo" Reed played a number of prominent roles besides his own. which would easily stump any other man. Wednesday. Judge Reed was on the car going north. At the transfer station a woman and little boy boarded the car. 'Oh, mamma," cried the boy, "there is Mr. Taft." The crowded car roared much to the abashment of both the boy and the judge. As the judge alighted at Sixth, a man accosted him thus: 1 m croud of you old man, that s right, keep right after those horsethieves, you've got 'em on the hip now, Wilkerson. We're all for you. Stay with it." Joe was fast losing his identity when he met a woman at the matron's entrance of the police station who bubbled over with haDDiness thus: "Whv. Mr. i.aion I'm so glad to see you again." I knew you tell me if Mrs. Thorpe is in. y pou ten me ii wiia. x i 'j this time the judge was so far to the bad that he hurried home to get his family to re-establish his identity. Somebody stole a railroad velocipede. This velocipede belongs to T. E. Dren non, living at 920 North Harrison street. Drennon.is a foreman at the U. P. tie yards and had locked the ma chine and left it just west of Forbes' elevator. He passed the place at 7 o'clock last night and it-was gone. The lock and chain were scattered aooui the spot. A car repairer saw uio velocipede there at 5 o'clock. The motor police may be sent after the craft. A great race will result but it is hoped that the railroad machine will leave the track at a high rate of speed as one of the flanges is worn and dis- reputatble. In such case tne runaway miscreant will be taken from the ditch and returned to the city for evidence. The uneannv mystery of the nightly bonfires beside which two young men watch the dragging hours, is a new- riddle for the police. Are the tires sig nals as with the Indians, of a maraud ing gantr in the city limits, are they to furnish warmth for the patient watch ers or built as they are near some barn, what and who is in the barn.' These fires Durn nignny ncai mc They seem to all appearances to be harmless. However, mey win v- ped. The following letter comes from tne j nr rhiaffn to the adiutant general at Topeka who has other things to do: Deap Sir: Would you Kinuiy senu me a list of all the McLaughlins who are iving in your state as X am iuukhis ii some lost relatives which are supposeu to be living there if it is not too much trouble I will be greatly obliged to you.

Some ime ago the National Refinery or Cleveland built a refinery at ColTey- ille and the Cudahy Oil company old the National its Eartlesvllle pro duction amounting at that time to about 1.500 barrels a day. The Superior Consolidated Oil and Gas company of Alluwe. has just con- racted with the Cudahy Oil company for the delivery of 900 barrels of oil day from its Alluwe wells, and the Nowata Pipe Line company- has been Incorporated for the purpose of build- ng a pipe line from Alluwe to Coffey- ille, a distance of about thirty miles.

FOUND A POT OF GOLD. This Story Startles People, ' But Ascertained to lie a Dream. Is Sam Freidberg, the jeweler, had a dream the night following his Christ mas dinner and during the dream the exact location of the hiding place of a pot of gold was revealed to him. A night or two later a similar dream disturbed his slumbers and for the next two or three nights he was haunt ed by visions of the pot of buried gold. He could not get the dream out of his thoughts during the day or night and to a few of his friends he confided the location of the buried treasure. It was in the back cellar under an old two-story frame building which stood on the lots which adjoin the Friedberg home on the north, lots 416 and 418 Harrison street. The house was erected in 1858 by Charles Wey mouth and was occupied by his widow until recently, when it was sold to M. C. McCormick. the contractor, who razed the old structure and is at the present time preparing to erect a moaern nome .on tne site. A visit to the location of the old building disclosed the. fact that the building has disappeared and that nearly all of the old stone foundation has been taken out by the contractor. An aged son of Ham, Monroe by name, is completing the work. "How about this story that a pot of truiu nas oeen round in this old eel lar?" asked a State Journal renre sentative. "Is there anything to it or i ii a pipe a ream : "Wal," replied the ancient Ethio pian, An aon t know nothen 'bout youn pipe dreams, as you call 'em. out aii Know tn- ain't ben no pot ov goiu-rouna wnare use ben diggen as. aoes you 'spose for a minut tnat I'd be tellen it to some newspaper 'porter or anybody else for inai rnattan. vvoKen as hard as I has to ier my money. Ah wouldn't hev told noDoay a thing 'bout it." inat seems to be about all that there is to the story of a pot of buried gold In the cellar of the old Weymouth nome at is tiarrison street, except ing the dream of Samuel Friedberg ine jeweier, wno in nis dreams saw a fortune in gold buried some time be fore the war. Some one in whom Sam confided dug up the bottom of the old cellar last night. There are no evidences that the dreamed of fortune was disturbed or even located, though it is a fact that some one must have worked for sev eral hours industriously last night In an effort to locate the fortune seen in the dreams of the jovial Kansas ave nue jeweler. The news spread through out the neighborhood of the find and was reported to the State Journal of fice over tha telephone by a well meaning friend of the paper. Crane Given a AVateh. George W. Crane of the firm of Crane and Company was the recipient of a beautiful remembrance from his employes this week in the form of a solid gold watch. Mr. Crane had planned a little celebration in honor of the fortieth anniversary or tne rounding of the firm in TViti L-:t u uic iiiwraiauon ui me time piece followed.

CMS CURED IN ONE DAY THE MESSIAH IS SUNG. Oratorio Pleased the Audience Ists Well Received. -Solo. ,The Topeka Oratorio society, the successor to the . Topeka Choral so ciety, gave their second number since organizing at the Auditorium last night, in the oratorio "The Messiah." The society is planning to appear at least twice every year in some oratorio and the singing of "The Messiah" dur ing the holidays is to be an annual event. In the neighborhood of a thousand people attended and showed their ap proval by applauding the individual and chorus numbers. It was an audi ence that seemed to thoroughly appre ciate classical music. The personnel of the chorus was largely local although there were two "ringers" from Kansas City, Mr. E. E. Edwards, a tenor, and Joseph A. Far rell, bassowho sang the leading roles for male voices. Mr. Edwards sang two solos, while Mr. Farrell appeared three times, both receiving much- ap plause for their work. The others were well known Topeka soloists! The soprano soloists were Miss Helen Hogeboom, Mrs. Joseph Griley and Miss Celia Smith. The contralto parts were sung by Mrs. Nina Thomas O'Neill, Miss Nellie Pond and Miss Ona May Miller. M. C. Holman di rected the performance, Mr. W. F. Roehr was at the pipe organ while Miss Brunette C Walter played the piano accompaniments. The chorus contained fifty well drilled voices. For an amateur performance "The Messiah" went off well. This organiza tion will fill a long felt want in To peka, as it is the only organization seeking to promote a hie-her apprecia tion of classical music. ine periorm ance showed much painstaking work and the society should receive the cor dial support of all Topeka.

Prof. Corruth Laments the Supremacy of the Athlete, John MacDonald. the witty editor of the Western School Journal, was put to shame this morning at the con vention of the Kansas State Teachers association when Professor W. C. Wil cox of the Iowa State university gave his speech on -"The. Educated Amer ican Girl." It was one .of the most humorous and side splitting speeches ct-i iiruiu in nit i trprtraeiii.fcii.ive iitiii I and although the sneaker snoke for almost two solid hours he never gave his audience a chance to become un easy or bored. And the speech was not given with a humorous intent. It was full of good sound logic and the wit seemed to ereep in with the naturalness of the speaker. He summed up his talk by saying: "If you men can't stand- the rightful competition of the women, just get off the earth." The whole talk was in the defense of girls who see fit to acquire a college education and Professor Wil cox exploded the theory that college girls do not make the right kind of wives. His speech was full of well told and appropriate stories some from real life and some from the magazines. He should be given the credit however of springing a good many stories on the public that are actually modern. Professor Wilcox made a startling statement when he said that the girls are far outnumber ing the boys as graduates of the liberal arts course of the colleges to day and he said that the scholarship of the girls was much better than that of the men. Not long ago the yell of the Phi Beta Kappa society was a good, real manly yell but now it was a squeal indicating -that the girls were receiving the big majority of the scholarships and honors. The only place in the speech that the men in the audience had a chance to applaud was when the professor said: "Educa tion cannot make a sensible woman out of a natural born fool." Professor William Herbert Carruth of the State university gave a talk this morning on "How Can Scholar ship Be Had as Respectable as Football." The- professor had writ ten to all the leading colleges and universities In the country concerning the fall of scholarship and the rise of athletics and they all regretted the fact that the captain of an athletic team received far more respect and honor from the student body and the college in general than the Rhodes scholar or the man who stands at the head of his classes. He read letters from Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Stan ford, Cornell. Wisconsin. Michigan, Denver. Dartmouth, Williams, Chi cago, Illinois and Bowden. All of the presidents In these institutions said they would join with Professor Carruth in the attempt to make a scholarship a greater honor and es teem. PRICE IS CHAIRMAN. Will Head Judiciary Committee in the Senate. . Lieutenant Governor W. J. Fitz gerald, who has' been in the city all week in conference with the new and old senators as a preliminary to mak ing committee appointments, today an nounced the chairman of the judiciary committee of the next senate in the person of Judge Francis Price of Ash land, the veteran senator from the Thirty-seventh district. Senator Price served twelve years on the district bench with honor and is regarded as one of the strong men of western Kan sas. Lieutenant Governor Fitzgerald stated today that the election commit tee of the next senate, which will be called upon to decide a couple of con tests, will be composed of the best men in that body, men above any reproach of being a party to riding over justice or the wishes of the people.

In an exciting but short runaway at 9 o'clock this morning a horse on the Daily Capital, Mail and Breeze wagon crashed into a big truck and was in stantly killed. While Murrill Reed, the driver, was absent, the team became frightened standing at the postoffice building and ran south on Kansas ave nue. At the corner of Sixth, street the team swerved a little to avoid a big moving truck of the Skinner company but the off horse struck the truck with his shoulder with such force that he was thrown backward from the heavy ob struction while the wagon he was hitch ed to Jammed into him, a large splinter from the footboard, making a huge wound back of the shoulder from which he bled to death in a few minutes. The moving van was engaged in mov ing the office furniture of Dr. H. H. Keith to his new location at 724 Kansas avenue. A large leather office divan in the rear of the load was badly smashed up by the impact of the run away horse. Within 20 minutes, a good and useful horse was dead and dumped at the desiccating works at the foot of Madison street. Argentine to Have Gas. Argentine,- Dec. 31.
