3 TO HAVrCHANGE Topekans Appoint Committee on Arrangements. Second Meeting Will I5e Held Next Friday Night. BROKERS GIVE TALKS. Bruce Deitrich Says Evasion of Law Net Intended. Declares a Cash Grain Market Is the Plan. Now for a board of trade or business exchange in Topeka! At a meeting held Thursday night at the Commercial club representative millers and other business men of the city were in favor of forming such an organization, and to that end a committee composed 'f W. W. Walton of the Central Com mission company, George Hackney of the Hackney Milling company, and John B. Nicholson of the Kaw Vallpy Milling company, were appointed to draw up by-laws and arrange details. Another meeting will be held next Friday evening at which time the com mittee will make a report. David Page of the Mid-Continent mills served as temporary chairman of the first meeting, and he likewise will preside at the next meeting. Bruce Deitrich, C. J. Tuttle and M. Jj. Tankersley, grain brokers of Kan sas City, were present at the meeting and gave Information In respect to the mode of procedure which should be taken in forming an exchange. "A board of trade is a good thing for anv town." said Bruce Deitrich. "What is good for New York, Kansas City and Wichita should also be good for Topeka. "Money might just as well stay here as go to the Kansas City banks. An exchange in this city would mean to the , local banks J50.0OO a year in 111- tP"Ift a merchants' exchange weri formed I don't like that name board of trade as people have gained the idea that it Is an aggregation of gamblers It would of necessity bring a good manv people from out of town. tt would bring business that . other 1m would go to Kansas City. It would bring 50 people In a short time, mucn capital, and it would mean that money would he put in circulation locally. Will Come to Topeka. "We are willing to come to Topeku, bring our families and build up a cash grain market here provided you take the proposition up and push it: other wise our interest ceases immediately. "I haven't anv doubt but within 0 days there would be half a dozen branch offices of firms represented in Kansas City on the board of trade. We want a cash grain market and To peka looks good to us. "There isn't any reason why this Kansas trade should go to Missouri. You are paying commissions every day that should be retained in the state. Wichita has an organization and they are making money. "Kansas has stringent laws in regard to gambling In grain stocks. If this exchange is managed right there will be no member w ho will not be convinc ed that it conforms to the statutes in every particular. It is not the idea to try to evade the law. "A market for home' stocks is what vou want. It wouldn't need to be con fined to grains. It could be a clearing house for cement and other Kansas stocks. "The first step is to obtain a charter. Then it. would be necessary to employ a secretary at say $150 a month, and some quotation men. The secretary would have to furnish a bond for 15 or 20 thousand dollars. "To start with, the grain market in Topeka would have to creep; inside of six months it would be walking. The markets of the world would be at your disposal. The exchange would be en titled to all the quotation news that any other board of trade in estitled to." "It would stop grain from shooting through to Kansas City." said George Hackney, "and in case of car shortage We could get an adequate supply of DOCTOR OPERATION Cured by LydiaE-Pinkfaam's Vegetable Compound Galena, Kans. "A year ago last March I fell, and a few days after there was soreness in my right side. In a short time a bunch came and it bothered me so much at night I could not sleep. It kept f rowing larger and y fall it was as large as a hen's egg. I could not go to bed without a hot water bottle applied to that side. I had one of the best doc tors in Kansas and he told my husband that I would have to be operated on as it was something like a tumor caused by a rupture. I wrote to you for advice and you told me not to get discouraged but to take Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. I did take it and soon the lump in my ride broke and passed away." Mrs. It. It. Huey, 713 Mineral Ave., Galena, Kans. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound, made from roots and herbs, Las proved to be the most successful remedy for curing the worst forms of female ills, including displacements, inflammation, fibroid tumors, irregu larities, periodic pains, backache, bearing-down feeling, flatulency, indiges tion, and nervous prostration. It costs but a trine to try it, and the result has been worth millions to many suffering- women. If you want special advice write for!tto3Irs.Pinkliam,Lynn,Iass. It is free and always helpful. grain. It would avoid shortages and equalize Aricea, ' "It seems to me too that it would be to advantage to hold the Kansas crop as far back as possible in the country, so we won't have to go to Kansas City to buy -wheat." Looks Bright for Plans. John B. Nicholson, manager of the Kaw Valley Milling company, stated that the elevator belonging to his com pany, with a capacity of 350,000 bushels of grain, could be used by the exchange as a bonded elevator. It was proposed at the meeting that the old elevator now in disuse, of the Home Elevator com pany, with a capacity of 175.000 bush els, be leased for a bonded elevator. J. E. Gall, at whose suggestion the meeting was called, stated that he knew of 30 members who would be glad to come into the exchange. "I know that Topeka. could have a good board of trade if we all pull together," said he. "I have sent thousands of dol lars out of the state because wehad no exchange." TAFT HAS BUSY DAY. President Will Lay Cornerstone of School in Cincinnati. Cincinnati, Sept. 23. President Taft will be busy today if the program ar ranged for him Is carried out.

DEATHENDS A WAGER Two Pints Beer and One of Whisky Proves Fatal. Chicago, Sept. 23. Andrew Scho strick of Whiting, Ind., laid a wager with a friend that he could drink two pints of beer and a pint of whisky within an hour. Schostrick drank four pints of beer and a quart of whisky. Two hours later he was found dead at his home. The two men went into a Whiting saloon and got into an argument over the quantity of liquors each could drink. Finally Schostrick made the wager, the winning of which cost him his life. After drinking the liquor he went to his home apparently none the worse for his interior deluge. He laid down and went to sleep and when his wife tried to awaken him found he was dead. BRIDE GETS LICENSE. AYeris Soulier lover From Kansas, oh Two Bays' Furlough. , Waterloo. III., Sept. 23. The diffi culty which confronted Lieutenant Emmet W.

Retired Broker Tells How to Resist Temptation. Chicago, Sept. 23. James A. Patten, retired board of trade operator, last night told the students of Northwest ern University how to resist tempta tion. He said it was by learning how to say "no." The occasion was the first chapel service of the year. "Teach the boys to say 'no' while they are young," said Mr. Patten. "Many a man has been lost just be cause he had never learned in his vouth to say 'no.' My young friends, when vou grow older and embark on the rough seas of life, vou will know of what value it is to you to be able to say that word 'no. "Just learn how to say the word. Spell it over and ovc so often that when you really feel the need it will come to you naturally to say 'no' to all the evil temptations and . vices which beset you"r manhood in a large city. "I would also caution the bovs to stay out of Chicago especially at night, when the city is aglow with brilliant lights and attractions to ensnare the weak and unsuspecting." Cranked His Auto and It Killed Him. Prosser, Wash.. Sept. 23. C. A. Wild er, a photographer, was killed on the street by his own automobile Thursday while he was cranking the machine. The car jumped upon him, rolled him and mangled him and then stopped. Many persons were passing along the street and noticed nothing unusual. Even those who saw the man's feet protruding from .beneath the car thought he was at work making re pairs. Death must have been in stantaneous, resulting from a broken neck. - Sherman Heads Utica Delegates. Utica. X. Y., Sept. 23.

Ryan Proposes to Furnish a licet Free of Expense. Washington, Sept. 23. John Barrv Ryan, son of Thomas F. Ryan, the j.Jew York multi-millionaire, spent today in the war and navy depart ments and succeeded in driving the of ficials into a state of enthusiasm over the proposition to provide the arrav and navy with a fleet of airships that would augment tremendously the of fensive and defensive powers of the twin services. The attractive feature of Mr. Ryan's proposition was its economical side; he did not ask a dollar of government money in return for the creation of a reserve of about a thousand aeroplanes that might be called immediately into service by the government in time of need. What he did want was the moral support of the tire departments. This was given him with hearty good will. Ryan's idea is to have an afficer de tailed from each branch to act in an advisory capacity and to assist in the organization of the reserve of military lines. Efforts will be made to develop aero planes of greater size than those now in use, so as to transport a corporal's guard and to carry sufficient ammu nition for effective bomb work.

Henry Breton, a Xew York civil engineer, 60 years old, who is in the Queens county jail under a life sentence as a habitual criminal, has turned his attention to the aeroplane. He has already sent two biplane models to the patent of fice and is working on a monoplane. Britton is an expert machinist and claims to have discovered a principle of flying which has not heretofore been known to aeroplane builders. He ex plains this as consisting of the "an- nlioation of n rlearl ; v. . . . the biplane, thereby insuring equili- U 1 I 11111.
