Br the Associated Press. Topeka, Kan., Oct. 22. Joseph C. Waters, formerly general attorney for the Santa Fe system, in an interview today spoke of the foreclosure of the mortgages on the road as follows : "The road must either go into the hands of the first mortgagees, or prove itself capable of running without a re ceiver.

"The company will probably be re organized under the laws of the state of Illinois instead of Kansas, which means the headquarters of the road will be transferred from Topeka to Chicago." JULES YERNE'S IDEA. A Boat Invented Like the Nautilus. A Baltimore Inventor Will Construct a Vessel That May Be Navi gated UnderWaxer. By the Associated Press. Baltimore, Md., Oct. 22 A Balti more inventor hopes to make real the imaginary voyage of Jules Verne's boat, Nautilus, under the sea. After years oi steady experimenting Simon Luke, of Ease Baltimore, has invented a submarine boat, which he claims is capable of accomplishing what Jules Verne suggested might be possible in the imaginary voyage of the Nautilus. Indeed, If Mr. Luke's invention is a success, the French romancer will have ouly half anticipated what the coming submarine boat will be capable of. Mr. LukesayB: "The boat is capa ble of being submerged to any depth and again raised to the Burtacs at the will of the operator. " "It is capable of being propelled when on the surface or when sub merged or on the bottom of the water, as may be required. Many of the op erations in raising vessels and remov ing cargoes can be performed from it. without going outside of it. "The vessel is capable of searching the bottom thoroughly in locating wrecks, with the assurance that ground once gone over is thoroughly gone over. Divers can pass from the in terior of the boat to the outside and back again when on the bottom as readily as they can pass in and out of a house." The inventor expects to commence his first boat in a few weeks. William T. Malster, president of the Columbia iron works, has become financially in terested in the Lake Wrecking and Submarine Navigation company, which has charge of the invention.

He Advertises for a Pretty Girl to Work in His House and All the Ugly Ones Answer. By tae Associated Press. Chicago, Oct. 22. The manager of a publishing house wanted a young and comely woman to exhibit paper drees patterns in the windows of a State street store and advertised for "a little beauty to work in a store window." Eight women have anaweied his ad vertisement and not one of them is a beauty nor little. "She must be re fined," said the manager wearily, "and she must have a neat, trim figure. It does not matter whether she is dark or light. I'll dress her to suit her com plexion. I just want to see the girl that suits me, and I'll pay her good money. But I cannot get anybody. It's amusing and discouraging to see the women that think themselves beau tiful. The great trouble with most of the applicants is that they have a com plexion past, you know, and sallow. Of all the unemployed women there must be in Chicago, it seems strange that I cannot get hold of a good looking one for such light, easy work. NOT VERY LIKELY.

ALL WERE THERE RousingRepublican Ral ly at Gardiner's Hall. Issues of the Local and Territorial Campaign Lucidly and Eloquently Placed Before the Voters. Bursts of Music and Floods of Ora tory ConsDlre to Make the Nlsht an Era In the Canvass. i There was more than a sprinkling of ladies in the audience which filled Gar diner's hall last night to listen to the persuasive eloquence of the Republi can chieftains. County Chairman Mc Cord presided and opened the meeting by introducing Professor Thomas' Glee club, which rendered an original cam paign song which was received with great applause. Mr. McCord made a brief, but strong and convincing, addresB. He lucidly showed the - beneficent results which have resulted to this country at large from the Republican policy of protect ive tariff. He charged the shrinkage of values in cattle in Arizona from $6,000,000 to $2,000,000 to the iniqui tous Wilson bill, and to the same Dem ocratic legislation many other ills which have befallen Arizona. The Glee club, consisting of Mesers. Benham, Perley aad Coggins, then rendered "The Dimmycrats," which was uproariously encored. Hon. Jerry Millay was the first speaker. He referred to the Democratic argument that if the election shall go Republican onr chances for statehood are small. Ha reminded his audience that the same argu ment was used in the last city campaign and denounced it as all gam mon. He said the leading Democrats of Arizona had lost i sight of statehood and jeopardized onr chances for it by squabbling among themselves for office. He said that be was almost convinced that there was not an honest man among the leaders of the Democratic party and believed they had convinced congress of the same. He r jferred to the prosperous condition of the coun try at the time of entrance of the Dem ocratic party into its present term of power, exports imports and manufac tures were shown to have been in con dition unnrecedentedly favorable. The subsequent deterioration was then por trayed. He deprecated the laws which permit cattle raised by peon labor in Mexico and allowed to enter free of duty and compete with American sheep. Raferriaa to the $1,103 which ex Gov. Murphy is charged with having drawn illegally, he said that Chief Jus tice Baker had expressed a legal opinion previous to the issuance of that war rant, that Gov. Murphy was entitled to it. The merits of honest Jim Doran who came into Arizona before the rail roads with his burro, pick and ritle and helped to pave the way for civilization were eloquently pictured. His experi ence in the Arizona legislature was ad duced as an a ignment in favor of his election. Mr. Millay closed by an ap peal for Bupport for the county ticket. Judge Street who had been an nounced as one of the speakers, was unable on account of a painful affection of the throat to be present. His warm Republicanism and his intimate ac quaintance with public affairs have made him a figure at Republican meet ings and last night hisabsence was con sequently a matter of deep disappoint ment. He gives assurance though that he will be seen and heard by a Phoenix audience before the close of the cam paign. Perry Wildman, of Tempe, candidate for the legislature, made an earnest party speech. It was the speech of a thoughtful, modest, educated gentle man sure of bis ground and firm ia his conviction: Like the good business man that he is, he placed the matter of the selection of county officers before the people in a business way and guaran teed each of the Republican candidates to be all wool, a yard wide and war rant not to shrink nor shirk from duty. J. A. Marshall, also candidate for the assembly,-beginning at the top of the county ticket enumerated the candi dates and the special merits of each one, nor omitting a modest plea for Black smith Marshall, representative of the laborer and mechanic. C. W. Crouse, candidate for probate judge, spoke upon the subject of special fitness for office. His eighteen years of experience in the school house should he thought ought to count for more even than that he ia a Republican. Mr. Crouse promised, in the event of his election, an improvement in the schools of Maricopa county, in the method and system of their manage ment. W. F. McNulty, who is making the race for sheriff, has a good voice. He Btarted off with a few humorous allus ions to his own personal beauty which pleased the audience. He promised to be no kid glove sheriff if elected but to do the work of the office and to go wherever duty called. His talk caught on and he was loudlv cheered. Judge Priest's hair and whiskers are white as snow but that did not prevent him from opening his remarks by a di rect bid for all the ladieB to use their influence in his behalf. ;He soon got down to a businesslike statistical talk about county affairs, than he with which no one is more familiar, and suc cessfully refuted Bome of the argu ments of the benighted Democratic brethren. Upon the subject of free trade, Mr. Priest touched lightly before closing. He related that he remem bered the time eome forty-five years ago when England entered upon her free trade career when farmers of that country were receiving as high as $1.74 a bushel for wheat and that now it is quoted there at 60 cents. Frank H. Parker, also for the board was the anal speaker. He dwelt upon the preference which supervisors who reside in Phoenix should have over those who reside at a distance. Gardiner's hall proved to be a great improvement upon the open air rallies previously held. Nearly all the crowd were comfortably seated and remained to the- end. Bruce Perley's solo "Frank Henee" an orignal parody made a distinct hit. MAY KNIFE OWENS. Dear Willie Not a True Party Man. Fears Entertained by the Friends of Owens That Breckinridge May Try to Defeat Him. By the Associated Press, Lexington, Ky., Oct. 22. The friends of Mr. Owens here are becoming alarmed at the growing strength of the Republican candidate, Judge Geo. Denny, and are casting about for a way to conciliate the friends of Col. Breckin ridge, who hold it in their power to de feat the Scott county man. That a large part of the Breckin ridge people will knife Mr. Owens seems now almost certain, and ehould Mr. Denny poll the full strength of his party, which seems probable, a Repub lican may represent the Seventh dis trict in the next house. A prominent politician in this city who fought bitterly for Col, Breckinridge said today: "If Mr. Owens' friends do not wake up from their lethargy and do some tall hustling, their favorite candidate will be defeated. I figure that the vote will be cast as followB: Owens, 15,600; Denny, 16X00. The total Democratic vote in the district is between 18,000 and 19,000, and the total Republican vote about 13,500. Now, I believe that a moderate estimate of 300 Democrats in each of the eight counties of the district will vote for Denny, and this means 2,430 votes to be taken trom the total Democratic vote and added to Denny's vote. Whether this will be borne out on election day or not re mains to be seen, but one thing is cer tain, Mr. Owens has no cinch on the congressional chair." Then the Breckinridge man winked and said yes, he intended to vote for Mr. Owens, but his friends were very sore, and he could not answer for them. INFECTED CATTLE. Kansas Sanitary Commission Brings Criminal Proceedings. Topeka, Kan., Oct. 22 The Kansas state live stock sanitary commission was in session today, and ordered the attorney general to institute proceed ings against Peter McMullin, of Bur lington, and Phillip Bulger, of Baxter Springs, for shir ping deeeased cattle into Kansas, in violation of the quar antine regulations heretofore imposed by the commission. The cattle were shipped from Newton county, Mo., and the offence charged is the shipment of diseased cattle to a point within the district. The cattle were quarantined immediately upon their arrival at Bur lington and Baxter bprings.

Wannick, of Goodrich. A criminal proceedings will also be commenced against Wannick for shipging cattle known to be afflicted with fever. The board also considered the Chase connty cattle case today and will probably order the release in November of cattle quarantined in that county. CHOLERA ABATING.

TILLMAN'S DILEMMA. Can He Confiscate Spirits Stored In Bonded Warehouses? Washington, Oct. 22. Governor Tillman of South Carolina, was at the treasurv department today and had an interview with Commissioner Miller of the internal revenue bureau, in regard to a question on which there seems to be a conflict between federal and state authorities. Under the dispensny laws of the state of South Carol. distilled spirits in the ciiBtody of vBS United States in bonded warehouses belonging to parties who have violated the provisions of the dispensary law by selling them within the Etate are de clared to be a nuisance, and on con viction the state officers are authorized to seize and confiscate the liquor. In all such cases the governor proposes to. tender the tax due to the government and confiscate the ppirits, contending that the federal officials have no right to interfere in the matter. Commis sioner Miller took isuo with the gov ernor and cited several decisions of the courts, among tbf m one by the su preme court of the United States, wherein it was held that goods in bonded warehouses were not subject to any process or proceeding ieeuing from a state court and that so long as the government retained control of the goods its jurisdiction and authority was supreme. No final decision, however, was reached, and it is probable that in deference to the wishes of Governor Tillman the question will be referred to the attorney genera) for an opinion.
