COUNCIL OF WAR.
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
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!

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

which will not prevent my telling him
on the occasion of our first meeting
that he is an infernal liar. I believe i

NEW YEARS .
"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

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

furnish warmth for the patient watch
ers or built as they are near some
barn, what and who is in the barn.'

FOUND A POT OF GOLD.
This Story Startles People, ' But
Ascertained to lie a Dream.
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

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.

,The Topeka Oratorio society, the

night, in the oratorio "The Messiah."
The society is planning to appear at
least twice every year in some oratorio

ing the holidays is to be an annual
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.

FOOTBALL OR SCHOLARS.
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.

committee of the next senate in the
person of Judge Francis Price of Ash

one of the strong men of western Kan

stated today that the election commit

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. There will
be at least one Democrat on that com
mittee. Among the new and old sena

HORSE KILLED IN A HUN A WAY.
Team Collides With Moving Van on
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
Argentine to Have Gas.
Argentine,- Dec. 31. The 12,000 citi
zens of Argentine are to have natural
gas within a year. A twenty-year
franchise was granted last night to W.
H. Caffery and J. D. Waters to furnish
natural gas to the city. The company
has three wells at Muncie, four mile3
from Argentine. It agrees to drill new
