THE TOPEKA DAILY STATE JQURNAIr-MONDAY EVENING, JUNE 23, 1913-
ANOTHER RATE DELAY. Now Commissioner Newland Will Wait for New Pump. No further action toward a reduc tion in the price of water will be taken until the big new pump, part of whiih reached Topeka today, is installed and has been tested. Then the matter of a reduction in rates will be taken up, Commissioner New land says, and what ever possible reduction will be made. J At present the commissioner declares he believes it would be folly to make a sweeping reduction in rates when there might be an accident that would tost a lot of money and perhaps put the water department "in the hole" before the new pump is installed. If the work of installing the pump is ac complished without accident, which is likely, and everything goes well there may be a decided reduction later in the summer. It probably will require a month or six weeks at least to install and test the new pump. After that it will ue time enough. Newland says, to take up the matter of reductions in rates. The new dynamo for the city lighting plant, and three carloads of machinery for the new city pump reached Topeka this morning. The work of installation of both machines w ill begin in the near future. There are still about two car loads of pumping machinery to come, being about five carloads in all. As fast as possible the new machine ry will be installed, the new pump tak ing the place of both the present pumps and being used while the present pumps are hein thoroughly overhauled. When all three pumps are in working order the city will have about twice the pumping capacity that it now has. and will leave an opportunity to allow part of the machinery to rest part of the time at least, which is much needed. PAID $5 FOR FLIES. Highland rark Lad .Swatted .a Peek for Mayor Cofran. HOT WEATHER HINT S IN BATHING SUITS. Mayor Cofran and Billy Fulton were discussing flies. It was Satur- dar afternoon. On Friday the mayor offered 15 to any youngster who would bring him a peck of deaders. "Expecting many applicants, mayor?" Mr. Fulton inquired. "Haven't had any yet," the mayor responded. Fate, in the person of a freckled faced kiddie, knocked at the door. "Are you the mayor?" he demand ed. "Here's your flies." The mayor's hand sought his pocket. .--- "What's your name?" "Alva Alexander," the small boy pulled off his cap. "Catched 'em out in the country. Catched 'em in two big fly pans in a Highland Park dairy." He deposited a greasy pall on Mr. Cofran's desk. The mayor counted out five bills; the kiddie wriggled his toes in satis faction. You can have the flies, too," said the mayor, weakly. "Burn them." The boy had the flies and the fiver. The mayor had the consolations of philanthropy. - - "Want any more?" said the boy, ex pectantly. "Xix," said the mayor, shortly. SALOME GREAT FILM. Spectacular Production From Italy at Best Today and Tomorrow. The three reel motion picture feat tire, "Salome." was tried out through the machine at he Best theater this morning, and as a spectacle that is ar tistic, interesting nnh gorgeous, in its acting, scenic effects and costuming, it is fully up to the advance promises.

Patten's application to the county commissioners for a right of way for the proposed Topeka railway extension from the city limits along Tenth street to Gage's park was re ferred by them today to the county attorney for examination and an opin ion. This petition asks for a right of way "to and into Gage's park," etc. The county commissioners are not ex actly clear in their own minds as to whether or not they have the powrer to grant the railway company a right of way "into" Gage's park, and in or der to be on the safe side they have asked the county attorney for a legal opinion in the premises. According to the present plans of the railway com pany, as they were presented to the county commissioners, it . desires to build a short loop for terminus pur poses within the limits of the park. Empress Has Good Bill. In keeping with its policy, the Em press theater has another good bill for today and tomorrow. "His House in Order" is a V'itagraph comedy drama that is good.

Lutz of Holton Is the Xew President. -, - LECTURE FOR TEACHERS Dr. Payne Addressed Them on Sub ject of the Eye. Dr. D. R. Paine, the eye specialist, addressed 200 members of the County Teachers' Institute, in the high school auditorium this morning at 10 o'clock. Dr Paine spoke on the eye its functions, anatomy and the philosophy of vision. He is an interesting lectur er and was asked t'o repeat the ad dress which he made last summer be fore the members of the institute. The doctor opened with an intro ductory tribute to the eye and the enormous importance of the Sense of vision; his second point touched the function of the eye and the philos ophy of vision compared the eye to the camera and cited instances how defects of the eye are recognized by the brain. He gave a brief sketch of the anatomy of the eye and a des cription of how pictures are formed. His closing point was hygiene. "Defective eyes are common and glass wearing prevalent." said Dr. Paine, "no care is taken concerning position of light with respect to read ing. The effect of motion pictures on the eye is exceedingly bad. The mal effects of a veil on vision have never been estimated." When the ordinance granting the extension to Gage park by way of West Tenth street, prepared by Albert M. Patten, was presented to the city commission this morning it was mere ly referred to the finance commission er, Roy Bone, and the city attorney for a report. The ordinance, as has been stated heretofore, provides for an extension to Gage park to be com pleted by January 1. next, in lieu of all other extensions and the bond for Jlo.000 now held by the city. It is believed unlikely that favorable action will be taken on the report. Commissioner Porter remains firm ir. his attitude for a line to the park. "I don't care where it goes," he says, "so it reaches the park. I want to see that line built." Other members of the commission are willing to waive other prdmised extensions provided the park line goes out Eighth street, or even goes out Tenth to Washburn or' Summit ave nues and then north to Eighth and on to the park. But several of them are standing solidly against the extension unless the railway company uses Eighth at least from the city limits to the park. When the railway company secured franchises for extensions three years ago this spring and put up a bond for f IS, ooti to complete them, there were six different extensions promised. Three of them have been built. There was the" Douthitt avenue line running from Kansas avenue to Western ave nue on Douthitt, thence south to Six teenth and west to Buchanan, and from Buchanan to College avenue on Euclid avenue. The Shorey line was ccmpleted as also was the change in the Country club line from Clay to Buchanan street west of Eucild ave rue. The extensions uncompleted, aggre gatinfl 19 blocks, are as follows: Clay street from Tenth to Third streets; Kansas avenue from Eighteenth to Twenty-first streets, and Eighth street from Clay street to Summit avenue. were under the engineer's estimates, but action was deferred temporarily. The bidders .were Folks & Wilson, whose bid-was 10.5 cents per square foot, and Kaw Paving Co., whose bid was 10.95 cental The engineer's es timate was 11.5 cents. The contract will amount to about $9,500. the average width of the walks tn ha in 1H t1nv rlnu tn R font Thara will be approximately 90,000 square j feet to be laid, or a little more.

LEWIS" Single Binder, straight 5c many smokers prefer them to 10c cigars. Adv. Henderson S. Martin, chairman of the public utilities commission, re turned today from Washington, where he attended a meeting of members of the various utilities commissions and was in conference with the interstate commerce commission. Plans an nounced some time ago for carrying nut the work of making physical valuations of railroad properties will riot he abandoned, Martin stated. "The public, however, was not very well represented at the conference," said Martin, "and at future meetings. It will be insisted that public interests be included in the representation from the various states. There has been no disposition to abandon the original plan of completing the making of physical valuations of all railroad properties and the work will be com pleted as soon as possible." Martin believes that the government will complete the work of compiling the valuations of railroad properties in this state. The work was under taKen . oy tne state two sears ago when the 1911 legislature .made an appropriation for that purpose. Valua tions of but three roads have been secured. Under the present plan, the date secured by the state will be fur nished the government and the inter state commerce commission will as sume the responsibility of completing tne job. Shortly after returning to Topeka, Martin left for his home in Marion, where he will remain for a couple of days. DEATHS AND FUNERALS.

Helen White, colored, the infant daughter of Mr. -and Mrs. Elijah White, died last night at the home of her parents at 1204 West Xorris street. The funeral was held at the residence this morning. Births Reported. The followine births- have been re ported to the city clerk: To Mr. and Mrs. Wylie E. Humbert. Mission town ship. June 20, a girl. To Mr. and Mrs. DeWitte Lee, 1256 West street. June 17, a boy. To Mr. and Mrs. Frank Harold, 1501 North Polk street. June 18. a girl. To Mr. and Mrs. George W. Fulton. 311 Madison street. June 16, a boy. To Mr and Mrs. William J. Hoffman, 423 Adams street. June 18, twin girls. Dr. Hensley, the county physician, told the county commissioners this morning; that it would be decidedly im practicable for the county to use any of the paraphernalia of the tuberculosis camp on the North Side to the poor farm for the use and care of the coun ty charges now at the camp who will be transferred to the poor warm when the camp ends its existence on July 1. When representatives of the Topeka Tuberculosis society told the county commissioners a week ago that they would have to abolish this camp be cause of lack of support on the part of the people of Topeka, and because it wa simpossible to raise funds to buy another suitable site for the camp, an offer was made to give the county any of the tents and other parts of the camp outfit that it might need io care properly for any tubercular patients that might be 'eared for at the poor farm. - :i - In the opinion of Dr. Hensley none of the tents or other paraphernalia of the camp could be moved t rom their pres ent location any place else without be ing most thoroughly disinfected. This is well nigh impossible, as there is no structure of sufficient size available to enclose all of this paraphernalia so that it could be fumigated as it should be. Dr. Hensley added that he be believed this -;,camp paraphernalia should be burned on the spot, as soon as the camp goes out of business. That would be the only sure way to make impossible any infection from it. So it appears that when the patients are removed from this camp, either to the poor farm or to their homes, as the cases may be. all that is left of this most worthy charity will go up in smoke. Douglas. June 23. Reports that General Pedro Ojeda, the federal commander in Sonora. had surren dered after a four days' battle at Ortiz, were denied today by the con stitutional junta in Douglas. Official messages from Hermosillo said the battle was resumed today. Junta members assert, however, that Ojeda was surrounded and cut off from his base of supplies. Advices received by the junta and from private sources at Nogales last night stated that Ojeda had been sur rounded and handicapped by the greater strength of his enemy and steady loss by desertions would be forced to surrender. The enmity be tween Ojeda and the rebel comman der, Obregon, has not only caused Obregon to announce some time ago that when he had whipped Ojeda, who had beat him several times at A sua Prieta, he would have the fed eral general shot.

Watch Dog; Lea.gue Promises Interest ing; Meeting Tonight. BOLD BAD BURGLAR. Unknown Man Leans Ladder Against Topeka Sleeping Porch. A bold bad burglar braved ferocious dogs, outdoor sleeping porches, glar ing street lights and a shaky ladder at an early hour this morning in an attempt to rob an apartment at Ninth and Clay streets" occupied by Miss Hazel Criswell and her aunt, Miss Myrtle Allen. Fortunately, Miss Cris well awakened in time to see the man climbing over the sleeping porch rail ing. lth her handiest weapon, a shrieking scream, she sent the bur glar down the ladder, ten steps at a time, and on up a dark alley. The man procured the ladder from the back yard of Clarence Miller, liv ing next door, and placed it against the porch railing. The ladder, an ex tension affair, was in the cherry tree. The burglar took the top section and leaned it against the upper apartment occupied by Miss Criswell and her aunt. He was just crawling silently over the high railing when the wo men were awakened. Their screams spread to other sleeping porches and neighborhood bedrooms and soon the entire district in the vicinity of Ninth and Clay streets was chasing imaginary forms in dark hiding places. Nothing was stolen. The burglar left no clues only a neighborhood of friglitened women and brave determined husbands. The regular meeting of the Taxpay ers' league tonight promises to be unusually interesting, the chief sub ject of discussion being the prospective city and county budgets for the com ing year. Of course on the extent of the budgets depends the tax levies for the next year, so the league will go over the situation pretty thoroughly. "We will be glad to have a good at tendance tonight," declared W. H. Kemper. "The meeting certainly will be interesting." Steps to go over the prospective budgets carefully are expected to be taken, and committees to take charge of the matter may be named at the meeting. The league is working for a total tax levy of J 1.50 on the valuation of $100, the levy of three years ago, and believes that it ought to be re duced to that amount. It will mean quite a cut in the levies of both the county and the city, and perhaps in the board of education, if it is brought to that figure. The levy in 1912 was 31.67 and in 1911 was 31.77.

BRICKLE Y-PHILLIPS Second Floor KANSAS COUNTY FAIRS Kenneth Lewis, son of Ike S. Lewis, state superintendent of insurance, will probably never receive a more cordial I c",t welcome than was accorded him this morning when he walked into his fa ther's office in the state house. Around the state house, the news had been cir culated that Lewis was drowned Sun day evening while boating In the Mis sour! river at Kansas City.. Xewspaper dispatches told of the death of Lewis and three companions at Kansas City Sunday. A young man of the Topeka boy's age and bearing the same name, was among those who lost their lives. Many people in the state house read the dispatches and there were hurried trips to the insur ance commissioner' s office and anxious telephone calls to the Lewis home. At 9 o'clock the Topeka Kenneth Lewis walked into his father's office and in answer to the half hundred inquiries advised the fellow clerks and official that he wasn't drowned at all and had spent Sunday quietly at his parent's home.

Torrez, who conducted a little Mexican revolution of his own on the Branner street viaduct about a month ago, has finally been landed In the county Jail; and this after an ex ceedingly clever capture on the part of one of Sheriff Kiene's deputies. Torrez went on the war path. Acencion Falcon was the victim of his wrath. Torrez used a gun. One bullet from it cut a groove alonjr th right side of Falcon's head. An other put a hole in Falcon's left ear. Torrez fled, thinking that he had fin ished his enemy for all time. Falcon was taken to the hospital, more scared than seriously injured, and has now fully recovered. A warrant was sworn out against Torrez charging him with assault with intent to kill. But Tor rez was among the missing. Sheriff Kiene kept on his trail. however. He found that Torrez had gone to Kansas City. He notified the Kansas City police, and on Saturday received word from them that they had the man he wanted. Sheriff Kiene sent A. Alba, his deputy that works with him in the cases where Mexi cans are involved, to fetch the pris oner home. When Alba arrived at the Kansas City police headquarters he discovered that while the detec tives had picked up a Mexican named Torrez, he was not the right man. Then Alba and a detective went to the place where Alba had reason to believe that D. Torrez. the would-be-murderer, was working. He was employed at the place all right, but did not happen to be on the job that day. So Alba and the detective start ed back to police headquarters. They traveled on a street car and had not gone very far when Alba made a flying leap from the car. marf it across the street in two jumoi and pulled a Mexican from another street car. just as he had gotten on It. This was the U. Torrez for whom they had been looking. Alba knew hi. mor. and happened to see him making it for a street car, just about at the time that he had given up hope of finding Alba brought Torrez hnot Topeka without any trouble and the blood-thirsty gentleman ,(... tucked away in jail. f.".Jv' s,ra,,fi" Supers Broken Arm.
