Salina Liked It.
Salina Union: Abilene has every
reason to be proud of her carnival.
It was better than many expected.
The visitors were pleasantly surpris
ed and well entertained. .
Salina Republican: The Abilene
Corn Carnival was in every way a
magnificent success, attracting a
crowd not over-estimated at 15,000.
The parade was very fine, embracing
both the sublime and the ridiculous,
and was generally commented on as
one ot the best ever seen In the State.
The outside and inside decorations ot
the business houses were very line and
the window decorations decidedly
original and beautiful.
The crowd was very orderly day and
night, and while there was much
sport there was no serious mischief,
few drunken men and no accidents of

QOUO TO BE A SCRAP.
20th Kansas Officers Getting Ready
to Air Their Troubles-
San Francisco, Cal., Oct. 14. The
officers and men of the Twentieth
Kansas expect the fur to fly when the
regiment returns home.
As heretofore stated in these dis
patches there Is no friction here for
it is the desire of everybo iy to refrain
from any expression of opinion that
would cause a row and mar the regi
ment's brilliant record. But when
all are private citizens they may talk
aud fight as they please without in
jury to their fame as a military body.
Trouble, however, will not begin, till
after the reception.
"Please assure the committee at
Topeka and the people of the State
that we will keep our heads till the
blow out is over," said a captain in
the regiment in conversation with
the Capital correspondent today.
We want to be received in a pleas
ant frame o' mind by our friends and
relatives and I speak with authority
when I say that an armistice has been
declared by those who have grievances
pending the muster out of the troops
and the reception at Topeka."
It is generally understood that hos
tilities will be opened by Captain Ed
win Boltwood, who conies home load,
ed for General Funston. Boltwood
refuses to give Funston credit for
anything except courage. He calls
him a grand stand player and an ad
vertiser and ironically refers to him
in ordinarv conversation as "the
He says that Funston did not rec
ognize merit in promotion, but al
ways took good care of his friends,
and allowed the law lirtn of Gleed,
Ware & Gleed to dictate appoint
ments. Boltwood, although a Republican,
is training with Lieutenant Colonel
Ed Little and the opinion prevails
that they will work together in an
effort to down Funston's glory.
Little is loaded for Funston and
Metcalf, and a story is in circulation
that he has a 6,000 word statement
ready or publication.
General Funston is not saying any
thing, but his close friends declare
that he is prepared to defend himself
Colonel Metcalf, who is also main
taining a clam-like attitude, will be
on Funston's side in the fight.
Major Whitnianbas been regarded
by the regiment as a partisan of Lit
tle, but it is said that just before the
Tartar landed he went to General
Funston and proposed that they bury
the hatchet. That suited Funston
and the two officers shook hands. The
present difficulty is the outgrowth of
the clash between Funston and Little
in the Presidio a year ago.
It is believed here that Little will
give the Kansas Pupullsts their cue
for the campaign in 1900. Topeka

COURT BY TELEPHONE-
Dickinson County Son Bniinesi in
Up to-Date Manner.
This county is right up-to-date In
its legal methods. Last week a war
rant was issued from Chapman for
the arrest of a party charged with as
sault and battery. The defendant
heard of it but was not arrested,
keeping out of the way. He em
ployed Senator Hessin of Manhattan
to take care ot the case for him. It
was not a sorious matter and the de
fendant was guilty. So Mr. Hessin
called up on the long distance tele
phone the justice ot the peace in
Chapman who had jnrisdiction of the
case and inquired if the case, was
pending and learned that it was. He
then called County Attorney Smith at
Abilene who in turn called the justice
into a conference. The result was
that Mr. Hessin entered the appear
ance ot the defendant at Chapman, 33
miles away, by 'phone, pleaded guilty
for him by 'phone and the justice im
posed a fine of fa and costs by 'phone
and Mr. Hessin remitted it by draft
in the afternoon mail. Presumably
justice may be dispensed after awhile
without court houses or the formality
of trials therein.
TOOK HIS WHEAT.
Southeast Dickinson Farmer is Short
Wm Schlessner, of southeast Dick
inson came to the Carnival Thursday.
While he was away some one stole
97 bushels of wheat from bis granary,
took it to Herington and sold it. The
wheat was traced and a warrant is
sued for a suspected individual. It
was a bold act.
DEATH ON THE GRIDIRON.
Delphos Football Player Killed Dur
ing the Game.
George S. Thurston, the fullback
on the Delphos football team, was
killed at Delphos Saturday on the
field during the igame between the
Delphos team and the team from the
Kansas Wesloyan university ol Sulina.
The torrible accident occurred during
the first halt. Thurston had just
made a hard lunge on the line and
the players In some way crushed his
head and neck so heavily that he died
almost instantly. He was carried
from the field but was dead almost as
soon as picked up. The game imme
Clay Center Depot Burned.
The Rock Island depot was burned
at Clay Center at 6 o'clock Saturday

groom is well known here and has

Is Leading the Republicans.
We learn from the Colorado papers
that at Wulsenburg, that state, at the
close of the regular Republican coun
ty conveution on Saturday, E. F. Hal
berf, formerly of this county, was
made chairman of the central com
mittee and also chairman of the coun
ty organization for the coming year.
The convention was the largest and
most enthusiastic ever held in that
county, the opera bouse being packed.
The Republicans are counting on
1,000 majority. Mr. Halbert is pot
only deputy district attorney and a
leading lawyer but editor of the prin
cipal paper. His Dickinson county
friends may well be proud ol his success.
SIGNS OF A MILD WINTER.
j The Weather Observer Makes Some
P. Connor, United States weather
observer at Kansas City, refuses to
take the responsibility for predicting
what the winter will be, but expects
it to be mild. Mr. Connor does not
give a scientific reason to support
them and it is not tho custom of the
weather bureau to make long range
predictions. Going a little outside of
the custom, Mr. Connor said immed
iately after the Kirksville tornado in
May that there would be no more
destructive tornadoes in Kansas City's
vicinity. Then he predioted a sum
mer without hot winds and a fall
without an equinoctial storm. In all
ot these he was correct. Following
the same general course of reasoning
he is prepared to show that Kansas
may reasonably expect its usual mild
winter, preceded by a long ''season of
agreeable weather called, for want of
a better term, Indian summer,
"The couiing winter won't be any
thing like the last one," he said, "but
anybody can mako that prediction as
a rough gtioss, for we only have such
winters about once in thirty years.
But there arc good scientific reasons
for saving that the cominj; winter
won't be nearly so severe as the last.
I won't be responsible for any further
prediction than that, because there
are too many elements that go to
make up a winter, and nobody win
tell very much about it in advance.
In tuct only an omniscient Providence
can tell with certainty."
..The conditions a weather observer
figures on are very different from
those ordinarily considered by the
average weather prophet. Early
frost does not mean a cold winter but
usually quite the contrary. Last
year tho first frost came with the first
snow on October 17. This year the
first rost was September 26 and in
three days was followed by another a
Hitle more severe. But lust fall be
gan with a series ot rains that full al
most every day of 'tho first twenty
days of the month while this year
September was mild and normal con
Mr. Connor reasons that when the
weather is warm until late in the fall
and breaks to cold and strong weath
er the winter is always severe. When
the change has been gradual the win
tor following has usually been com
"The summor, taking all things in
to consideration," Mr. Connor says,
"was a pleasant one compared to
what we usually have, and tho (all so
fur has been an encouraging ono. We
won't have thirty-six snowstorms
this winter like we did last. Tho
people may depend on that."

WANT THE DAY RIDE.
Kansani Against Night Trip Through
San Francisco, Oct. 17. The
members ot the Kansas regiment
want tu rido through Kansas in the
daytime. This was determined by a
tent-lo-tent canvass made yesterday.
The soldiers were enthusiastic in dis
cussing tho forthcoming trip from
San Francisco to Topeka and nino
tenths of the men lu thu command
preferred to spend a night in Topoka
rather than miss the day rido through
western Kansas. Although the regi
ment is to be mustered out Nov. 3,
the men will not leave tor Kansas un
til two days later. The date ot actual
departure ot the regiment was fixed
today by Colonel Metcalf alter con
sultation with Adjutant Fox for the
evening of Nov. 6. This is still sub
ject to a change in tho hour of de
parture so as to meet the wishes ol
the command In respect to a day run
through western Kansas.
