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 latter is impossible. The
road will be foreclosed within a year
and the mortgagees assume the manage
ment. "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
A Baltimore Inventor Will Construct
a Vessel That May Be Navi
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
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.

TRUST IN COURT.
The Sugar Cases to Be Argued This
Washington, Oct. 22. The case of
the United States against the sugar
trust will be argued in the supreme
court during the present week.
The case comes to the supreme court
on appeal from the circuit court of ap
peals for the third circuit.
It is a bill in equity to upset this
trust filed by the United States under
the so-called Sherman anti-trust law of
July 2, 1890. This is regarded as an
important one because of its bearing
npon cases of a similar character
touching the validity of the Sherman
law as applied to other trusts.

THEY ARE ALL PRETTY,
The Woes of a Publishing
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.
Ezeta Hasthe Backing of the United
New York, Oct. 22. A special dis
patch to the World from San Salvador
Letters received here from Antonio
Ezeta and published in the newspapers,
assert that he has the backing of the
United States government and will
soon return at the head of a large army
and conquer both Guatemala and San
Salvador. It is reported that the Gua
temalan government has been hum
bugged "by an American ex-general
from one of the Souther states, who
took money for making a feint on the
northern border of Mexico with a base of
operations in the United States in case
Guatemala should fight with Mexico.
The American, it is said, secured $100,
000, but left the steamer at Acapulco
on his way north and has disappeared.

ly at Gardiner's Hall.
Issues of the Local and
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.
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
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
Raferriaa to the $1,103 which ex
Gov. Murphy is charged with having
drawn illegally, he said that Chief Jus

previous to the issuance of that war
rant, that Gov. Murphy was entitled
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
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
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.
Kansas Sanitary Commission Brings
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.
A Buit is already pending at the in
stance of the board against the Missouri
Kansas & Texas Railway company, for
transporting diseased cattle into Linn
county, consigned to J. C. 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

Can He Confiscate Spirits Stored In
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.
