Initiative Privileges for Gage REACH CHICAGO FOURTH DAY Park Extension. COURT ALONE KNOWS SECRET f f ON MANHATTAN INTERURBAN Taxpayers' League Would Use Neir Electric Line. Urge Promoters to 3Inrry Their Construction "Work. There is a chance that the Gage park street railway line may be taken out of the hands of the city commis sion, and that an ordinance authoriz Ing an extension somewhere, perhaps the way Manager Albert Patten offers to build It. may be passed by Topeka voters over the heads of the city com missloners. There is a good deal of talk in To peka of using the initiative privileges under the commission form of govern ment. and circulating a petition to pass the ordinance. And there are many people in the city who -would jump at a chance to sign such a petition. The procedure is comparatively sim pie. Under the provisions of the com mission law a petition that carries 25 per cent, of the votes cast for mayor at the last general election brings the matter authoritatK'ely before the city fathers. It is then up to the commis sion to do one of two things either to pass the ordinance asked for with out alteration, or oraer an election anu submit it to the people without altera tion. It Is pretty generally believed that if the people of the city were giv en a chance to vote on the proposition that they would pass the extension or dinance. The initiative and -referendum has TiKver been used in Topeka since the city adopted the commission form of government a little over tnree years ago. But from they way in which sig natures were secured to the general petition asking for a line to Gage park not specifying any particular route It is believed it will be an easy matter to secure the required number of sig natures. Petition Would Require 3,655 Names. At the last city election a total of 14.619 votes were cast for mayor. A petition to be authoritative would have to carry the names of 3.655 legal vot ers of the city. The petition presented asking for the extension, carried al most that many names, and the signa tures were secured without troubble. Commissioner Porter, for one, would be perfectly willing to see the park route matter left to the people. He Is fnr the line, and isn't standing on cere mony as to what route is taken. But other members of the commission have refused to consider any but the route out West Eighth street, originally pro posed. In response to a question as to when he will be ready to report on the last ordinance offered by Manager Patten and referred to himself and City At torney W. C. Ralston, Commissioner Itny L. Bone merely said, "I don't know." Last night the Taxpayers" league took chips in the park line matter. Definite action in the shape of a com mittee to confer with the Manhattan interurban people and urge them to push their proposed line to Topeka was taken. The committee consists in W. H. Kemper, W. J. Stagg and J. B. Dillard. Vrgre Manhattan Interurban. "We will urge the Manhattan peo ple to hurry their proposition, and come into Topeka by way of Gage purk. We believe that can be done without any difficulty. The $15,000 the city can secure on the bond held by it will grade the roadbed from the pavement on Eighth street to the city limits and also will grade the road through Gage park. Private interests fllong the line between the city and the park I am sure would supply money for the grading there. The city and the Individuals who put up money for the grading could take the equiva lent in preferred stock of the com pany. I believe that an additional jr.o.OOO could be raised in Topeka for the work, being subscribed for pre ferred stock." The league, Kemper says, wants a line to Gage park, and it is not at all Interested in the route taken. The main thing and that is the same feeling with the large majority is that a line be built.

If the rains do come later on which they have always done I in the past we'll be all right anyhow. The rainfall to date this month is three-quarters of an inch below nor mal.

"He told me that he loved me and re spected more than all else in the world and that he would marry me," she asserts, "and I believed him.

KEEP UP FIGHT Senators Opposing Free Sugar Get Together in Caucus. Offer Amendment to Continue Tariff After Three Years. Washington, June 24. Anti-free su gar Democrats got together in the sen ate caucus today and agreed to support an amendment by Senator Shafroth to eliminate the provision for free sugar in 1916, and substitute a duty of ap proximately one-half cent a pound af ter that time on refined sugar. The Shafroth amendment accepts the duties proposed in the Underwood bill upon sugars for the next three years. including a rate orr refined sugar until 1916 of approximately one cent a pound. Louisiana senators and those from beet sugar states are making no fight to change those rates, but are urging their colleagues to abandon free sugar for a further 50 per cent reduction in 1916. If the amendment is voted down the anti-free sugar senators will have other alternatives to propose. Senator Walsh, of Montana, resumed his anti-free sugar speech today when the Democratic caucus resumed. Ready to support an amendment to strike out the provision for free sugar in 1916, were Senators Newlands, Randell, Thornton and Williams. The sugar schedule promised to take up the en tire day. Senator James planned to lead the defense. LOW RATES SOON Representatiyes of Thirteen Roads Will Obey Law. Will Comply With Passenger and Freight Rate Ruling. Kansas City, June 24. Railroads in Missouri affected by the recent de cision of the United States supreme court upholding the two cent passen ger and maximum freight rate laws, will, without waiting for the man date of the supreme court, put the new rates ln force "at the earliest practical date," according to an an nouncement by attorneys for the rail roads after a meeting here today. The plan was agreed to at a meet ing here of representatives of the thirteen railroads concerned, the rep resentatives decided to notify J. M. Atkins, chairman of the public ser vice commission, of their desire to meet the commission as soon as pos sible for the purpose of determining such rates and formulating the meth od and time when they shall become effective. Though the supreme court upholds the 2-cent passenger rate measure, the matter of equitable ad justment of rates, the attorneys say, lies with the state public service com mission. The commission may go as low as two cents in establishing a rate, but may fix a rate above that, if it sees a necessity. It was stated the meeting would be in session until late today.
