Those who are still in North Toreka are being supplied with food arid they are in practically no danger unless it be from sickness. One of the most distressing features of the situation now is the possibility that there will be a spread of conta gious diseases. People of all classes are huddled together In houses not larsre enough for "them and on all 'sides they are surrounded by water. Doctors anH medical relief cannot reach the sufferers- to any great extent. This afternoon a case of diphtheria was reported from the woolen mills in North Topeka, where there are many children in addition to the adults. It is easy to see what may result from this. There is also a case or two of scarlet fever among the refugees on the North Side. Hundreds cf cases of measles are prevalent among the chil dren and on account of the exhausted condition of the patients the disease will Yesult fatally in many cases. The possibility of an epidemic is tht most serious thing the city must con tend with. The physicians of the city, under the direction of the county health loard, are making heroic efforts to check tfye threatened calamity. In this work they are being well aided by the health boards of the state and county. Ap emergency board of health has been appointed by the mayor to co-operate with the city physians. ROBBER MERCHANTS. Provisions of all sorts are becoming scare in Topeka.

It is reported that a lo cal commission firm bought up all the potatoes In town last Saturady and ad vanced the price 50 cents a bushel. It will be at least a week before freight trains from the east can' enter Topeka. and perhaps longer, but an effort will be made to secure a stock of provisions from the smaller towns. It was learned tonight that a Rock Island relief train had reached North Topeka last night in the vicinity of the reform school. The train brought sixty boats and two steam launches. Experi enced boatmen are in charge and are doing splendid work in taking flood vic tims to places of safety. The chief of police at St. Joseph and eight officers accompanied the train. f A long train of Rock Island passong?r cars was also brought and in these coaches the people are being placed. The cars will be taken to places further up the track, some to Atchison and oth ers to St. -Joseph, where the refugees will be provided for. W. O. Neville, chief clerk in the office of the ItocU Isl and general sujerintendent. reports his observations as follow: "For miles, looking to th north, there was nothing but water Our relief trains succeeded in getting in on the north side of the city near the reform school or their efforts to reach the people would have been useless. , "Miles of the Rock Island tracks are (Continued onPage Fmr MARRIAGE Of BURBANK To Filipino Girl Ordered by War De partment to Be Investigated.

Judge Wellborn of the United States circuit court today handed dowr. a decision in which he practically finds that the railroad companies having liivss. in southern California have been violating the routing order of the interstate commerce commission which was to have taken effect June 20, 1902. The decision is overruling of the de murrer of the Southern Pacific and Santa Fe railroads to the suit filed against them some time ago by the Consolidated Forwarding company, and the Southern Pecifie exchange, al leging that the order of the supreme court had been violated. An appeal will piobably b? tak?n. Thirty clays' time is allowed the companies to make ansv-"-. In his decision. Judge Welborn holds that the shipper of fruit has the right to choose his own touting to eastern points and that each must have equal rights under the railroad ratas which. however, must be constantly open for the use of the public. The court is or the opinion that there is in existence a pool bat ween the railroad and the con necting lines and that some shippers have been discriminated against 10 the advantage of ethers, that the judgment of the interstate commerce commission prior to the issuance of the order was an adjudication o th? fact, the finding being conclusive as "against -the de murrers, and that the routing rule, as established by the railroads was for the purpose of operating a pool. o SALOON ELEMENT ABLE Strong Enough to Destroy Naval Yard at Bremerton. Washington. I. '('., June 1. The re port of Captain Bheker, acting com- i mandant of the Bremerton navy yard 'at Seattle, Wash., relative to the im moral conditions In the vii'lnity of the yard has been rtceived by Ac ting Scc reary Darling and in view of its con tents the navy department declines to falter Its !.-ision not to allow any more war ships to go to that yard. Captain Meeker, In his report say: "The rum element in Bremerton, in sympathy with whom are three mem bers of the city council, succeeded In forcing the renewal of the licenses of two saloons which expired In April, but the mayor refused to sign thesp li censes and no money has btc-n received I for them. The commanding officer of i the receiving ship Nipsic, in a report. says mass meetings were held recent ly at which these three members of the council were denounced" and a committee was appointed to - request them to resign their offices." "This thsy refused to do. Efforts have been made and are being made by the respectable members of the council to posecute these saloon keepers but through the powerful influence of the saloon element and theii sympathizers, obstacles have thus far defeated jus tice. I believe the large majority of the citizens of Bremerton are sincere in their desire to clear the town of objectionable resorts. Today, accord ing to the olficial report there are six teen saloons in the town of Bremerton of which seven are located on Front street, within the shadow of the navy yard." o CHICAGO WASHING Turned Out Into the Street by Laundry Strikers.
